Google’s archive shows Obama’s birth story has changed

Filed in Gather News Channel by on October 17, 2009 0 Comments

The Post & EMail, The Free Press for a New Generation has found additional “missing” information on the Obama’s.  There appears to be more scrubbing of articles than the one recently posted:

“Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate”

It’s not just Google…

For instance, try using one of the paid newspaper archive services like Only a few older articles (pre-2004) are available from all the Chicago papers (and others worldwide, via AP, etc…)

A few have some things of interest in them, but the majority are simply “unavailable.” Also try searching on Michelle’s Maiden name- from her years as a lawyer in Illinois- it’s pretty obvious someone did some serious housekeeping. Big gaps in info about her, like when she was disbarred.


“There is no mention of Obama from 1981 to 2000; despite all his “work with the poor” in Chicago.

Next, the Google Newspaper Archive, the most extensive in the world omits the article in the East African Standard for June 27, 2004, in which Obama is identified as “Kenyan-born”.

Google’s archive shows Obama’s birth story has changed



FIRST ONE STORY, THEN ANOTHER — Has Google scrubbed its own News Archive?

by John Charlton

(Oct. 15, 2009) — It’s the world’s largest online repository of Newspaper information, spanning the globe and more than a century of history:  the Google News Archive.  The Post & Email can attest to its utility and depth of coverage, which enabled it to research the biography of Judge Jerome B. Simandle and publically identify him as an ex-Naider’s Raider.  This archive containes scanned images and or digitized text of printed newspapers and electronically available news reports for more than 100 years from papers and news agencies around the globe.

However, its results are skewed when you attempt to search for “Kenyan-born Obama”; results are missing; years prior to 2004 seem scrubbed; and when you click a link to an article in 2000, you get an article in 2004.

Deliberate sabotage of their own news archive?

This article will document what Google has done, for posterity’s sake.

This seems a simply enough query:  an attempt to verify the AP story which appeared in the East African Standard, Sunday Edition of June 27, 2004:  “Kenyan-born U.S. Senator Obama hopeful….”

Analysis:  An Administration of Mendacity

It seems that following the AP story on June 27, 2004, Obama’s Campaign went mum about the birth place; and only began speaking about a “Kenyan-born” father.  The Google Newspaper Archive has been scrubbed for all of 2005 and the first quarter of 2006.  However, The Honolulu Advertiser was aware enough still on Jan. 8, 2006 that he had claimed a foreign birth; but by the summer of 2006 stories begin to appear claiming a Hawaiian birth.  The reporter for the Honolulu Advertiser admitted in an email to Phil, the publisher of The Right Side of Life news site, that he had obtained his information from the web. Yet this same paper remained so convinced of Obama’s non-Hawaiian birth, that on Nov. 8, 2008, in a long piece ostensibly covering for Obama, it avoided all mention of the place of the birth.  How is it that a newspaper in Hawaii after the election can’t bring itself to name the place of birth? — What did they know, that we don’t?*

What appears to have happened is what the American public has already noticed with Obama:  he lies as he goes, and he makes up lies to suit his purpose; so many lies, you don’t know what the truth is; and frankly he does not seem to care.
