Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama?

Okay, if this is a joke, hoax, photo shopped etc....
Will someone please tell me?
If looks legitimate to me, but my digging around is a bit limited.
Some of you internet wizards might be able to find out a lot more than me.

"Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night..."

"Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama"...?

Why believe a Kenyan newspaper (which, if it were serious about reporting that Obama was born there would cite something such as a document or a source) and not believe the Wall Street Journal, which concluded:

"Obama has already provided a legal birth certificate demonstrating that he was born in Hawaii. No one has produced any serious evidence to the contrary. Absent such evidence, it is unreasonable to deny that Obama has met the burden of proof. We know that he was born in Honolulu as surely as we know that Bill Clinton was born in Hope, Ark., or George W. Bush in New Haven, Conn." (

In other words, the Kenyan newspaper made a mistake. Big deal. If it had been serious about reporting its news that it had found out that Obama was born in Kenya, it would have said "we know that he was born in Kenya because we found X document or Y source said it." But it wasn't doing reporting, it was just saying that it knew that there was a Kenya relationship with Obama, and it didn't have tough editors or fact-checkers.

IF Obama had been born in Kenya there would at least be a Kenyan document showing that his mother arrived in Kenya in 1961. No such document has been found, and the explanation that the Kenyan government has sealed the files is weak, since if the Kenyan government had sealed any files it would have been reported by respected news agencies (NOT WND).

IF Obama had been born in Kenya, he would have needed a US travel document to get to the USA, such as a US visa on a British passport or a change to his mother's passport to include him, and that would have had to have been issued in Kenya. Either of those documents would still be on file at the US State Department, if they existed, and they would have been found, if they existed. But no such document has turned up.

Also, it is absurd to believe that Obama's mother traveled from Hawaii to Kenya while she was pregnant. Pregnant women rarely traveled long distances in 1961 because of fear of miscarriages, and there were no direct flights in those days, so she would have had to have made four or five stops along the way to Kenya and back, on poorly pressurized planes, and with long-distance airline tickets costing relatively more (compared to average earnings) in those days than now.

And, Obama's Kenyan grandmother never said that Obama was born in Kenya. She said that he was born in Hawaii. This can be clearly heard if you listen to the complete recording of the tape, which is on Berg’s site. The complete recording includes a question asking “Whereabouts was he born?” And her answer was: “America, Hawaii.”

Here is the complete recording on Berg’s site. Be sure to listen for at least five minutes until the question is asked. (

If it is too difficult to listen to the complete tape, here is a transcript (

All the allegations of Obama’s birth abroad were checked out by the McCain campaign, and they found that there were no facts. No facts at all. (
