Seeking truth costs candidate newspaper endorsement 'We have lost faith in him, and urge voters to consider' others

Posted by BH

A blogger recently confirmed he’s behind a website offering a $10,000 reward for specific background information on Barack Obama, because the establishment media has refused to seek out school records and other documents.
Now a prominent member of that establishment media is objecting to others who ask questions about Obama’s past.

The blast comes from the Charlotte Observer, which recently retracted its endorsement of Jim Pendergraph for Congress.
The paper made its decision after Pendergraph appeared at a campaign stop with Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., whose special investigators have found probable cause that Obama’s purported birth certificate and his draft registration form are forgeries.
And then the candidate personally said he had questions, too.
The newspaper, in an unbylined “Our View,” stated: “What a run for Republican Jim Pendergraph. After winning the Observer’s endorsement in his bid for Congress, he has done nothing but embarrass us and himself. By buddying up to one of America’s more hateful egomaniacs and then joining with fringe ‘birthers’ to question President Obama’s citizenship, Pendergraph has contradicted much of what he told the Observer’s editorial board in his endorsement interview last month.”

Proof of an Alien Cover-Up? YouTube User‘s Wild Theory That NASA Is ’Trying to Stop Us From Looking at the Sun’

Posted by BH

Last week, UFO enthusiasts claimed they had — again — spotted an alien spacecraft flying near the sun. As these sightings are frequently written off with “simple explanations,” one rather interesting enthusiast is now accusing NASA of a cover up involving the giant ball of gas.
(Related: UFO enthusiasts believe they’ve spotted a spaceship flying by the sun — take a look)
The Daily Mail reports YouTube user “rob19791” posted a video on May 5 based on images from NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory taken on May 3. The video shows an object passing above the sun. A couple days later, he alleged observation data of the sun, which is continually being beamed from SOHO to Earth, had been missing since May 4.
UFO Enthusiasts Believe NASA Is Covering up UFOs as Its SOHO Stops Providing Data During Emergency Sun Reacquisition
Some think the object near the top of the sun as observed by NASA's SOHO is a UFO. (Image: YouTube screenshot)
(Related: UFO or photo flub? ‘Crazy’ object appears next to Mercury in a blast of solar wind)
NASA posted a notice on the web page that hosts the latest images from SOHO saying no data would be available as it was undergoing “Emergency Sun Reacquisition.” It should be noted that reports state SOHO went into this mode on May 4, whereas SOHO’s website says it entered this mode on Wednesday, May 8. Here is the message currently posted on SOHO’s website:
NOTE: LACK OF DATA UPDATES. SOHO went again into “Emergency Sun Reacquisition” (ESR) mode on Wednesday, May 8, 2012 at 20:34 UT. The ESR was again caused by a false trigger of the Coarse Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Dector. We are working on the recovery of the spacecraft to normal mode. It will take several days to return to normal science operations.
For rob19791, this message is code for cover-up:
“This is a cover up to prevent us from seeing these things again. NASA must have seen this video and started making plans to change the way you and I are allowed to view it.”
“I think this is proof that NASA are covering this up.
“NASA are clearly trying to stop us [from] looking at the sun.”
Watch rob19791′s May 7 video in which he explains his conspiratorial theory:

Here’s the original video from SOHO data that rob19791 uploaded to YouTube May 5 (two days after the data was posted on SOHO’s website) in which he thinks he spotted a UFO:

SOHO was launched in 1995 as a collaborative effort between NASA and the European Space Agency to study the sun, its corona and outer atmosphere. The project was only supposed to last two years, but it has since remained in space observing the sun and providing researchers with data about solar storms and how they can affect Earth.
Have any theories of your own?

Developer plans 200-foot-tall cross in Missouri

Public symbols of Christianity are under attack around the nation, but not in Branson, Mo., where county officials have approved a 200-foot cross that will rival American icons like the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge, according to its developer.
Kerry Brown said the “God-given vision” of the Branson Cross came to his father Dean two decades ago after he bought land atop Bear Mountain near the intersections of U.S. highways 160 and 65 in Branson, tourist mecca famous for its country music venues.
“It started as a vision with a 7-foot-tall cross just so people would have a place to go and meditate with the Lord,” Brown told “As time went on, additional portions of the vision came to him and ultimately it was to build the largest cross that anyone has ever seen.”
Brown hopes to have the $5 million project completed by the end of 2013. The cross will feature a 100-foot crossbeam and twin elevators to the 17-story-tall horizontal bar. The project is being funded by donations, and though Brown declined to say how much he's taken in, a website associated with the effort said some $410,000 has been raised so far. Much of the expense will go to preparing the mountaintop site.
“It’s going to be a family-friendly, free admission venue where people can have an encounter with Jesus Christ."

Egypt funeral turns celebratory after dead man awakes

The funeral of a 28 year-old waiter in southern Egypt turned into a celebration when he woke up after being declared dead.
Hospital officials had pronounced dead Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi, who came from the village of Naga al-Simman in the southern province of Luxor, after he suffered a heart attack while working.
His family says grieving relatives took him home and, according to Islamic tradition, washed his body and prepared him for burial Friday evening.
A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was warm. At closer observation she discovered he was still alive.
His mother fainted upon hearing the good news.
With the doctor's assistance, both al-Nubi and his mother were awakened and soon were celebrating with guests. DANCE DANCE DANCE ?

DHS Whistleblower: Obama to Commit ‘Reichstag’ Event to Enact Martial Law

Posted by BH

[While we can't verify the accuracy of this 'DHS whistleblower' we feel we should at least inform of the possibility.]

The Obama agents, through the DHS and other assorted colluders, are plotting a major ‘Reichstag’ event to generate racial riots and produce the justification for martial law, delaying the November 2012 elections, possibly indefinitely, a DHS whistleblower informed the Canada Free Press on Tuesday.
The ‘Reichstag Event’ would take the form of a staged assassination attempt against Barack Obama, “carefully choreographed” and manufactured by Obama operatives. It would subsequently be blamed on “white supremacists” and used to enrage the black community to rioting and looting, the DHS source warned.
The Obama administration would then use the violence and chaos they created as justification for the imposition of martial law in major urban cities in America, the creation of DHS checkpoints, restriction of travel, and the indefinite delay of the November 2012 elections.
The Reichstag event refers to a fire started during Hitler’s rise to power. The fire allowed him to grab emergency powers and murder his opposition. Historians have long believed that Hitler started the fire himself, while he blamed it on the Communists.
The anonymous whistleblower elaborated on how the Obama administration is using the Occupy movement, labor unions, and other assorted subversive groups to create massive chaos within the nation.

    I believe he orchestrated the shooting of the judge and Gabrielle Gifford in AZ.  We know he staged Fast and Furious to frame American gun dealers, and ended up in the murder of over 300, including two Federal Agents.  He and Holder still haven't been punished for this.  
    If you look at the shooting in AZ, the same state attorney was their for both events, although I think he resigned after Fast and Furious.  The Judge was a conservative who was going to rule against Obama the Monday after the shooting.  The reaction from him, Sheriff Dupnik, and the communist media all seemed choreographed.  Blame Sarah Palin, blame the Tea Party, as if on cue.  He traveled to AZ to give that idiotic, phony speech about civility.  The constant blaming by Wasserman Schult, even up to a few months ago.  I just think when you keep pointing the fingers at others, when most of the country side with the Tea Party, and know what the Tea Party really is, that needs to be looked at.  
    Remember the little ribbons Wasserman Schultz had members of Congress wear?  Remember them insisting that Republicans sitting with them, as if to show the American people a solidarity with the party of "civility?"
    Obama has a long list of deaths tied to him.  I view him as a dangerous psychopath, just like the others who came before him.  Hitler being one of them.  Nothing is out of the realm of possibilities for him.  Remember this guy who did the shooting in AZ was mentally ill.  Dupnik knew of his background.  If they got him to do it, and then blamed Obama and his ilk for it, they would just claim he was crazy, and he wouldn't be believed.
    Considering Ayers is one of those that Zero is working for, orchestrating a murder is not beyond him.  Obama better be approached by people in a position to do so, before he does something that kills more people than he already has.  Those Navy Seals that died, do you really think they weren't set up?  Of course they were.  Obama's appointed members of the Muslim Brotherhood in DHS and the State Dept.  That CIA Drone got to Iran because someone sent it there.  
    He's the enemy within.  Keep your powder dry.

President Obama's former doctor claims that the president lacks passion, feeling and humanity

Posted by BH
Submitted by Washington76 from FREEDOM CONNECTOR
by Jarrett Stepman
Jarrett StepmanIn a revealing new book, The Amateur, author Edward Klein interviews President Barack Obama’s physician, Dr. David Scheiner, MD, who blasts the president’s health care plan and says that President Obama has an “academic detachment” that he could never break through.

The doctor fears that if the health care plan is “the failure” he believes it will be, because of runaway costs and other problems, then any health reform will be set back for years to come.

These are only a few of many reveals in Klein’s book, which makes the case that President Obama is not the political machine that people fear, but an amateur with a messianic complex who is completely out of his depth.

In an exclusive preview of The Amateur by Human Events, Obama’s longtime physician reveals the lack of humanity in Obama’s character and carelessness with which he enacted the entirely politicized health insurance reform, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often called ObamaCare.

Scheiner said that he believes the president miscalculated politically and that the health reform is ultimately doomed to fail. Worse, Scheiner doubts the character of a man who holds the highest and most influential office in America: “I think there is too much of the University of Chicago in him. By which I mean he’s academic, lacks passion and feeling, and doesn’t have the sense of humanity that I expected.”

The author, Klein, later in the book, compares Obama’s personality to early the 20
th Century progressive president, Woodrow Wilson. By quoting the historian Forrest McDonald, who called Wilson’s perception of himself, “little short of Messianic,” Klein says that McDonald’s description of Wilson “fits Obama to a T.”

The Amateur
is set to be released Tuesday, May 15. It is published by Regnery Publishing, owned by Eagle Publishing, which also owns Human Events.

In the chapter titled, “Hollow at the Core,” Obama’s former physician, who is a liberal, blasts the president for being uncaring, and perhaps worse, incompetent.

“He has no cost control. There would be no effective cost control,” said Scheiner. “The [Congressional Budget Office] said it’s going to be incredibly expensive… and the thing that I’m incredibly worried about is, if it is a failure that I think it will be, then health reform will be set back a long, long time.”

Scheiner said that the Obama administration neglected the advice of real physicians and instead decided to let political operatives craft Obama’s signature health care law. People like Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, were the kinds of medical people that the White House consulted.

“Ezekiel is a medical oncologist, not a general physician,” said Scheiner.

The point that Scheiner was trying to make is that President Obama lacks the ability to understand the critical role of the doctor to patient interaction just as he fails to connect to people personally.

“My main objection to Barack Obama is that he is a great speaker and a lousy communicator. He isn’t getting his message across to people. He isn’t showing that he really cares. To this day he hasn’t communicated with members of Congress.”

Scheiner and other interviewees in
The Amateur believe that President Obama has been a failure as a president, that he has failed to live up to the hype and has left a trail of betrayals in his wake.
Although Obama and Scheiner did not have a close relationship, Scheiner was clearly upset by how he was cut off when Obama became president.

“Obama invited his barber to his inauguration—his barber! But I wasn’t invited. Believe me, that hurt.”

Editor’s note: The first video below is Alex Jones’ take on the horrific beating followed by the video released by the city of Fullerton, California. 

The homeless man begs for daddy over and over, but only more suffocating torture and high voltage comes. The police enjoy their work and they do it well. With trained loving care the police hold the prey down and then Taser him over and over again, then crush his wind pipe, thorax, ribs, skull, jaw, and many other bones. It’s a tough job, but they love it.

Warning: Explicit language
Obama/Soetoro/Dunham is a champion of infanticide - the killing of infants. While serving in the Illinois State Senate, Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama, voted three times to allow infants who survive abortion must be left to lay there and die.
Yes, he did vote against the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Click here to see the bills and his comments supporting murder.
Would you stand there and allow a living, breathing infant to die if you were a doctor or nurse? How could anyone, doctor, nurse or just plain human stand by and allow an infant who has survived the horror of abortion - just let them die without trying to save that precious life? Soetoro did because his soul died a long time ago. And, how did Barry justify it?
"Listen to audio from Obama’s 2002 IL Senate floor debate wherein he argued that while babies might be aborted alive, it would be a “burden” to a mother's “original decision” to assess and treat them." In other words, the mother wished to kill the infant, so be it.
54% of "Catholics" voted for Soetoro in 2008. They voted to elect an individual who denied three times the right of a living, breathing infant born of madness the right to live.
Say, I wonder if those "Catholics" got the hope and change they voted into office even though they had no right to vote for an ineligible candidate? God will ask them someday.
On May 9, 2012, the usurper camped out in the White House "made history" by once again spitting in God's face. He endorsed the legal fiction called "same sex marriage." Oh, boy, the headlines have been burning up the Internet:

YOU CAN KEEP THE CHANGE (Part 2) By Dr. Carl Parnell

Posted by Bh
PART 2  of 2

By Dr. Carl Parnell, Ed.,D
14, 2012
In Part I of “You Can Keep the Change,” the first two qualities of a good community organizer and a person who can bring about “change” were discussed. Now, let’s continue our discussion of qualities three through five and other thoughts about President Obama and his association with Saul Alinsky.
Third, there is the quality of Imagination (“the fuel for the force that keeps an organizer organizing”) [1] An example of President Obama’s Imagination can be seen in his 2012 State of the Union Address. In fact, according to President Obama himself.
Think about the America within our reach. A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.
Therefore, it is obvious that he meets the criteria for the definition of Imagination, since his imagination definitely fuels his will to create an utopia in America. However, without God as the foundation for his utopia, he will never succeed. It has been attempted by humanists for centuries, but none of these so-called man-made utopias have ever lasted very long. Sinful men cannot create a perfect society, but they still imagine that they can.

 Please give your attention to this important announcement from Congressman Steve Stockman. From time to time, we send you content on behalf of third parties we believe may be of interest to you and we believe this one deserves your attention.
Dear Patriot,
Barack Obama is out to destroy Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

I think we know why.

Well, if Obama wants a war, I’ll throw it back in his face.

I’m Congressman Steve Stockman.

I took on the corrupt Bill Clinton and Janet Reno and held them accountable for their crimes.

if you return me to Washington I’ll end Obama’s war on Sheriff Joe and investigate he and Eric Holder for their crimes along the border.
First Obama sent his “Justice” Department goons after Sheriff Joe to stop enforcement of immigration laws.
Then the Obama administration falsely accused Sheriff Joe of “racial profiling.”
The Obama administration then falsely accused him of illegal searches and seizures.
In all these cases, Obama sent his “Justice” Department henchmen to Arizona to harass Sheriff Joe and law enforcement officers.
Then Obama’s liberal allies sued Sheriff Joe for not running his jails like a luxury hotel.

Angry yet?

Well, now Obama’s out to destroy Sheriff Joe personally.

I’m sick of it.

I decided to run for re-election because I’m angry and fed up with Barack Obama’s criminal harassment of anyone who questions him.

If you
return me to Washington I’m going to shut down Obama’s Alinskyite campaign of personal destruction against Sheriff Joe. First I’m going to cut off funding for Obama’s harassment of Sheriff Joe.

Then I’m going to give back to Sheriff Joe his power to enforce immigration law.

In fact, I’m going to give it to every sheriff!

Then I’m going to investigate Eric Holder and Barack Obama for their criminal harassment of Sheriff Joe.

But I can’t return to Washington without your help.

You see, the Obama regime and liberal media are after me, too.

While other Republicans are distancing themselves from Sheriff Joe because they’re afraid of Obama, I am not.



Obama is out to destroy Sheriff Joe, and I think we know why.

But I need your support to fight back, so I can fight for you and Sheriff Joe.



Austin Steals Elderly Veteran’s House for Crime of Having Fallout Shelter

Posted by BH

Authorities accused Del Rio of having a bunker beneath his house. “The code officers went out to investigate it and the individual was fairly cooperative and showed them what he had been working on, which turned out to be a multi-level underground structure,” Doug Matthews, director of communications for the City of Austin, told the Statesman.
Matthews said the city “had some concerns about the structural integrity of the building and the contents of what was down there,” but this turned out to be a pretext for what would come – not only the wholesale theft of the house, but also socking Del Rio with a bill for $90,000 after the city sued him and then poured 264 tons of concrete into the “bunker” and put up a fence around the perimeter. It yanked the meter off the house, making it uninhabitable.
But this was not the end of Mr. Del Rio’s nightmarish ordeal. The city then condemned the house and took possession of it without paying a single cent in compensation. The elderly Vietnam War veteran was handed over to Adult Protective Services since he is a senior citizen and made homeless, thanks to the government of Austin.
“In my opinion, they wanted my property to start with, and this was a way to take my property away from me,” Del Rio said this week. “The ordeal they put me through was unnecessary. I’ve gotten the runaround. I think they want the property. Condemning it is a cheap way to get it.” Source

Can You Dance..?

An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading a tired old mule.  The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat.
He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.
The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, can you dance?"
The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No son, I don't dance... never really wanted to."
A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna dance now!" and started shooting at the old man's feet.
The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet.
Everybody standing around was laughing.
When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.
The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled 12 gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers.
The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air.  The crowd stopped laughing immediately.
The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.
The silence was deafening.  The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 1
2 gauge barrels.
The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he quietly said;
"Son, have you ever kissed a mule's ass?"
The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir... but... I've always wanted to!"
There are a few lessons for all of us here:
*Don't be arrogant.
*Don't waste ammunition.
*Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are.
*Always make sure you know who is in control...
*And finally, Don't screw around with old folks;
                  they didn't get old by being stupid...

Alabama Town Defies Atheist Demands By Reinstating Bible Verses on Welcome Signs

The controversial Syvlania ,Al town signs (Image Credit: Freedom From Religion Foundation)

Posted by BH


Some residents in Sylvania, Alabama, were up in arms last month when the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) demanded that a Bible verse be removed from four of the town’s signs. After initially bowing to the atheists’ demands, officials are now reversing course and keeping the verse — Ephesians 4:5 — posted on the government placards.
The FFRF originally sent a letter to the town claiming that the inclusion of the verse is unconstitutional. In a prompt response, the portions of the signs that included the words, which read, “One Lord, One Faith, and One Baptism,” were painted over. The town’s former mayor, Mitchell Dendy, like many political leaders in towns that face backlash from secular groups like the FFRF, decided that Sylvania simply couldn’t afford a costly legal battle over the signs.
So Dendy, who has since resigned in the midst of misconduct allegations, made the unilateral decision to take the Bible verses down. However, his decision, which was made without the town’s council, became an instant controversy. Residents, frustrated with the decision, flooded the town will angry calls.
The Christian Post has more about the town’s change-of-heart:
A small town in Alabama has decided to put up welcome signs that have Bible verses despite questions about the constitutionality of the signs brought up by a national atheist organization.
Town council members in Sylvania, Ala., voted unanimously on Tuesday to replace the four signs that former mayor Mitchell Dendy had removed two weeks ago before he resigned. [...]
Max Turner, the current acting mayor of Sylvania, told The Christian Post on Wednesday that the town‘s council voted unanimously to overturn Dendy’s decision so that the signs, or at least ones like them, can be restored to their proper places.
Some residents were so stirred by the incident that they took to their front yards to post Biblical signs of their own. But now, in the wake of the original letter, the FFRF’s next steps are uncertain, especially considering that Christian messaging is slated to reappear on the government signs.
If the battle does make its way to court, Tom Brejcha, the president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, says that Sylvania will have a better chance of success if a historical Christian history can be proven.
“These things are defensible when put into a historical context. This is probably a town founded by Christians and it has a strong Christian heritage,” Brejcha said in an interview with The Christian Post. ”[The FFRF is] of the mistaken view that the First Amendment guarantees us freedom from religion, which is wrong. The truth is that it stands for freedom of religion, and that‘s a distinction that’s lost on them.”

Author’s Note:  This story came to me via a message to my Facebook account.  Upon reading what the author had to say, and doing some preliminary investigation to attempt at least partial corroboration, I have finally determined, following what appears to be both a sincere and earnest request, to publish this recollection of what this individual states they saw from Barack Obama and a now deceased man who was in Barack Obama’s presence that night.  The following is their recollection in its entirety – no editing has been done.  I leave it to the readers to determine for themselves the validity of what the author of this story claims to have seen.
 That is my story.  I hope that you share it.  If something happens to me now, you will know why.


 I was an intern for a local Chicago newspaperand a college student working toward a journalism degree.  This happened before Barack Obama was president.  It happened a short time before he became a state senator in Illinois.  He was not the big name he would become just a few years later, but around Chicago he was a big enough name that I recognized who he was when I saw him.  His book had just been published and he had received some recognition locally for it, and I had actually seen him on campus a couple of times the year before.  He was an “up and comer”.
nyways, I got the chance to attend this big dinner/party/celebration event downtown that had everybody who was anybody in Chicago at the time.  It was an event that took place just before the big Democratic Party convention.  The mayor was to give a talk and I was told to do a write up of the mayor’s comments and if possible, get a short interview.  (I did not get theinterview)  I would figure about three or four hundred people were there.  Lots of money and power in the room.  As the night went on the drinking and noise levels both escalated.  I remember being a bit shocked to see these kind of people carrying on like they were, but it was also exciting to be around it.  I want to emphasize though that I was not drinking.  I was clear headed the entire night.  I saw what I saw.  I know what I know.

I decided to look for a bathroom before taking off myself and followed a sign that led me down a hall that had all the lights already turned off. There were about four doors to the left that were to conference rooms, with a sign on the right of the hall pointing further down to the bathrooms.   I was a little spooked because it was so dark but managed to find the bathroom.  When I came back out I noticed one of the doors to a conference room was about halfway open.  I had remembered that no doors had been open before and I got a little freaked out.  I hesitated because I was afraid to walk by the door.  That was when I heard the voices.  Or not so much voices but I heard sounds being made by a person or people.  I also smelled something that was odd.  Never smelled it before or since that night.  A heavy sweet smell that was filling up the hallway.  It was not marijuana or anything like that.  I was in college. I was plenty familiar with what marijuana smelled like.  Something different.  And as I stood there not quite sure what to do the smell seemed to go from sweet to kind of gross like rotting garbage.  It was weird.
Just before I was going to leave, I ran into one of my professors and sat down to have a talk.  I remember being pretty excited that she actually remembered me, and even more excited that she seemed to want to ask me how I was doing and whatnot.  I also remember she did seem a little drunk.  We ended up sitting and talking for almost an hour and by the time she stood up to leave there were maybe just twenty or so people still hanging around.  Everyone else had left.
I started to try and sneak past the open door so whoever was in there couldn’t hear me but I sure could hear them and that was when I realized the sounds coming out of that conference room were sexual.  I heard a male voice saying “Yeah,” again and again and then another sound from another male voice.  I realized then that there were at least two men in that room having sex with themselves or someone else I could not hear.  I was almost past the door when I heard a loud sniffing noise, and more of that weird smell coming from the room, and then one of the men yelled out the F-word.  And that’s when I tripped.  I tried to fall as quietly as I could but when my right hand hit the floor it kind of twisted under me and it really hurt. I cried out and then was trying to get up as fast as I could so I could keep heading down the hall.  I heard some scrambling from inside the dark conference room and then one of the men told the other one to shut up and be quiet.
And then the door opened behind me and I turned around and saw a young tall thin black man looking at me.  I recognized the face but wasn’t sure of the name right away, but was pretty sure he was someone important.  I told him I was just using the bathroom but knew I must have looked very embarrassed.  He just stared at me for what seemed like forever.  There was just enough light in that hall that I could see that his eyes were not really “right”.  I thought he was probably drunk.  Then his eyes seemed to suddenly clear up and become a lot more focused and he looked down at me and he gave a big smile.  He asked me if I was ok.  I looked down to his belt which was undone and I could see that his dress shirt was not tucked into his pants.  When I looked back up at his face the smile was long gone.  He looked really angry at me now.  He asked me again if I was ok but he said it in a way that really spooked me.  There was something in his voice that scared me.  Really bad.  And it was at that exact moment I finally recognized his face as the author and political candidate Barack Obama.  I was just about to turn and walk as fast as I could out of the hallway when the door opened wider and another black man’s face poked out.  He said, “What the F is going on B?”  The guy I now recognized as Obama stepped all the way out of the hall and closed the door behind him, leaving the other man inside the conference room.  He asked me again if I was all right. Now he was standing right over me.  He smiled again and I noticed one of his front teeth seemed to have a chip in it, or it was a lot shorter than the other one.  He must have had work done because the picturesof him today don’t show that.  I don’t know why I noticed that so much or why it has stuck with me but it has.  And his breath smelled really bad.  It made me want to gag it was so bad.  I told him I was fine and did a kind of half walk half run down the hall and  back into the main lobby.  I looked back right before I turned the corner and could make out Barack Obama still standing in the darkness of the hallway looking back at me.  It was very very creepy.
I didn’t really make much out of it.  I mentioned it in a joking way to some friends that I had interrupted some guys going at it in a conference room but never mentioned the name Obama when I did.  Then I forgot about it pretty much until I was watching the news and saw that Obama was running for U.S. Senator.  I figured whatever he was doing in his private life was his business though, and didn’t want to make any trouble for him.  I actually agreed with his politics and voted for him.  If he was gay or bisexual, I really could have cared less.  Whatever issues he had with that were between him and his family and none of my business right?  That’s how I felt.  So I forgot all about what I saw on that night again.  And I hardly thought of it when I heard Barack Obama was running for president.
That’s until I heard a news story coming from my television while I was making dinner.  A man had been murdered.  Shot numerous times at his home.  I glanced up at the television and there was the now dead man’s face being shown.  He looked older.  Heavier.  His hair was longer.  But it was him.  That was the same face that I had seen poke out from the conference room with Barack Obama about ten years earlier.  The news report said he was a church choir conductor and school teacher.  They didn’t mention it was the same church as Barack Obama.  I found that out a short time later.  Then I learned that another gay man from Obama’s church had been murdered about a month before.  That is when I started to really freak out.  I kept my mouth shut and didn’t say a word about what I had seen.  Then I started to feel like I was being watched.  I would see a car parked outside my apartment that wasn’t any of my neighbors.  One time I caught a man staring at me from across the street as I was getting my mail.  I worried I was losing my mind from way too much paranoia. 
I have since moved away from Chicago.  I have tried to forget all about what I saw, but it won’t leave my head.  I’m scared.  So now I’m telling you this.  I have been reading your stuff and think that the way you are doing it is giving you enough protection to get out your information but also protecting you.  So if you could do the same for me I would be very grateful.  I need to tell this story, but I don’t want to be known for doing it.  That scares me too much.  So the same way you seem to protect yourself and your sources I am hoping you can do for me.  I have to get this off my chest.  Part of me says I should have said something sooner but another part of me says that maybe I would not be around today if I had done that.  I know what I saw and I know what I heard.  I know who I saw.  Maybe it was some kind of phase he was going through at the time.  Maybe he was experimenting with a different lifestyle.  Maybe the death of that man was just a coincidence.  I don’t know the answers to that.  I just know what I know.  I just know what I heard and saw.  On that night I heard Barack Obama in that conference room with another man.  I saw Barack Obama step out of that room with another man.  I smelled what I think was some kind of drug they were using.  And I know that the other man who was in that room with Barack Obama was murdered about ten years later shortly after Barack Obama declared he was running for President of the United States.
That is my story.  I hope that you share it.  If something happens to me now, you will know why.
UPDATE: September 6th, 2011:
Earlier today a comment was left on a recently-published news story titled  Wall Steet Insider: When It Comes To The Economy – President Obama Is Bored.  I was unaware of this comment until it was forwarded to me via my Ulsterman Facebook account by a longtime reader of the Insider series.  Here is that comment in its entirety:
“Ulsterman. You don’t know me. There was a story that was sent to you a while back about an encounter with Obama in Chicago from years ago. You then published it. Letting you know the person who sent you that story is no longer alive. She passed away unexpectedly. I don’t know if what she said she saw was what she saw but I know that she believed every word of it. She was not lying. And she feared for her life. I don’t know if her death and what she believed she saw is related. I do know that she recently had a sit down with somebody about the story. Now she is gone. I promised her to let you know. That is what I am doing. You won’t hear from me again.”
I have no way of knowing if this comment is legitimate or not.  The individual who originally sent me her story that I then published in February, deleted their Facebook account shortly after sending it to me.  That was the only contact I had of them, and the account itself offered no substantive information as to who they were.  The only thing I have to go on now is the same as I did then – the details of the story itself and whether or not they corroborate with the related facts.
It is true there were two mysterious deaths of  men who attended the same church as Barack Obama at around the same time Obama was seeking the Democratic Party nomination for president.  It does appear that Barack Obama received significant dental work prior to his becoming a national political figure.  There was a large political gathering of Chicago elite at around the the time this recollection was to have taken place.  The description of drugs used does correlate to a specific type of drug utilized within the homosexual community.  These and other details were added as an update to the original story outlined below.  Are these facts enough to place this recollection in the category of truth?  I leave that to the readers.
As for the woman who sent her memories to me of what she believed she saw that night many years ago – if she has in fact passed on, I thank her for her courage, while praying her death was in no way related to her witnessing a specific moment within the still-murky past of our current president.
Original update to story:
Since publication, many within the Ulsterman Facebook Army have come forward with evidence that would support some of the specific claims made within the recollection above.  The strange smell coming from the conference room would most likely have been “poppers”, a drug that is used predominantly within the gay community.  Its smell is said to alter quickly from sweet to that of “rank, dirty laundry”.  It’s effects last only a few minutes, indicating a user could recover quickly after inhaling it.  Second, both video and photo evidence were provided that show considerable work has been done on Barack Obama’s teeth.  Here is video from 1995, evidence that would further corroborate the timeline of this story, showing just how extensive this dental work in fact was.  The alteration to both Obama’s appearance and speech is remarkable, and one of the front teeth does appear to be considerably shorter and/or of a very different shape than the other, which again compliments the details found in the recollection above.
Research also uncovered the fact that Chicago Democrats, playing host to the national convention in August of 1996, held a number of large social events throughout that summer, including a visit by then President Bill Clinton during the first week of July – events that were described in some detail by the Chicago Tribune on July 4th, 1996:
The crowds, the parties, the security and the hoopla that accompanied President Clinton’s visit to Chicago, plus the meeting of Democratic leaders last weekend, provided test runs for the Aug. 26-29 Democratic National Convention, organizers said.
Even the Chicago ‘96 decorations that adorned Navy Pier and the red, white and blue lights atop the Hancock and Stone Container buildings were previews of what to expect later this summer, said Julie Thompson, spokeswoman for the civic host committee.
Certainly Barack Obama, already a fixture in the Democratic Party machine by 1996, and the Democratic Party candidate for state senate, would have attended some or all of those large gatherings.  And equally certain would be Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s presence at those same events – the same Richard Daley whose brother now serves as Barack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff.
Thank you to all those members of the Ulsterman Facebook Army who helped bring this information to light so quickly.
