Reactions to My Obama Articles

"...I am glad to see that someone is zeroing in on Obama. He has obviously been groomed for this run at the presidency. He is so popular BECAUSE he speaks in generalities and wonderful platitudes. Unfortunately, our young people have little instruction in discernment and have embraced Obama. It is difficult to imagine a more dangerous person at the helm of our country, if Obama will promote those who either will allow or install Sharia Law."

I believe that all presidential aspirants should be fully scrutinized, regardless of sex, color, age, wealth, height, weight and whether their fathers were monogamous or polygamous or born inside or outside of Kenya.

Reactions to my recent articles questioning rookie Senator Barack Hussein Obama's fitness to be President of the United States and lamenting the lack of scrutiny of his life and especially his Kenyan connections ranged from the sublime to the silly.

Ladies who emailed were highly complimentary.

Barbara Anderson:

"Mike, I am glad to see that someone is zeroing in on Obama. He has obviously been groomed for this run at the presidency. He is so popular BECAUSE he speaks in generalities and wonderful platitudes. Unfortunately, our young people have little instruction in discernment and have embraced Obama. It is difficult to imagine a more dangerous person at the helm of our country, if Obama will promote those who either will allow or install Sharia Law.

"As a writer, myself, I have communicated with others who are concerned about the lack of information on Obama. We will never get much from the MSM. Thanks for this research and dissemination of the information."

Marie Jon':

"Thank you for writing such an outstanding op-ed on Obama. I saw your enthusiasm grow over the Duke University lacrosse case. Please keep up the same pace up over Obama. You have it in you to write with intelligence and authority."

Nancy E.:

"Excellent article today, which I found through a Google news alert.

"Raila Odinga is a declared Muslim, per the MOU [Memorandum of Understanding]. He's not just Muslim-backed. I'd guess he's been a Muslim for quite a while. Look at how many other Luos are Muslim, e.g., Obama's family.

"I'll have to take a look at your other articles, as I'm interested in the data about Dick Morris advising Raila Odinga.

"While this has been sitting in my Outbox, I read your outstanding article on Obama's constitutional law scholar experience. I've passed it on to WND."

But the male Obamatons who emailed were hysterical and beside themselves (which is not a good place to be).

James A.: "You are very uninformed. judging by your blathering about RAILA ODINGA. STAND CORRECTED.. he did not instigate the riots in Kenya. It was a reaction of a people fed up with people who are not in tune with the truth like you! Stop slandering Raila Odinga and Obama..... speak your truth with facts to support them!"

In fact, my articles included plenty of significant facts about the cousins that the mainstream media has not been reporting and James A, did not dispute. The "truth" with which such Obama/Odinga supporters are in tune but I am not seems to be a dangerous combination of Marxism and Islam's Sharia Law. (Odinga studied in EAST Germany during the Cold War and Obama went to Harvard.)


James C, Obamaton: America should ignore terrorists and people entering or remaining in America illegal and concentrate its attention on me.

Anonymous 1:

"...your article is full of intentional misinformation....

"From this article, I've come to realize WHY you are so obsessed against Barack Obama but I am completely DUMBFOUNDED & shocked beyond comprehension at your BLATANT LIES: The Kenyan Church killings were Christian-on-Christian. The church was burnt by the Nandi tribe & the victims were Kikuyu tribe—both of who are Christians. These are facts that can easily be checked out. Therefore, the Kenyan Church killings have nothing to do with Muslims—except in your mind & those of morbidly paranoid haters of ALL Muslims. I understand your hate for all Muslims but blaming this one on Muslims does not only make you look like a fool—but it clearly unfolds your incompetence on the Kenyan election issue.

"Mr. Michael J. Gaynor, my advice for you is this: please stop this intentional misinformation & blatant lies—soon or later it will catch up with you—don't you care about your professional integrity? Is it a question of anything goes? When a man of your education & stature is willing to quote or say anything however BLATANTLY UNTRUE or unjust—to malign people he hates or disagrees with—one looses respect for humanity as a whole....

"For what it's worth—if you are truly interested in understanding the Kenyan issue (which I highly doubt), you can go to the two leading Newspapers of Kenya: The East African Standard ( & The Nation (

"I sincerely hope that you will have the professional courage to correct this intentional misinformation—but now that I know who you're—I am not holding my breath!"

"You're not only a liar but a total disgrace to humanity!"

By all means, check out those leftist newspapers, especially The Standard and its article about how Barack supported IT!

Also, I didn't report that Barack left his socks on the floor (that was his wife Michelle) or that he smelled bad (that was one of his two daughters).

Are they liars too?

Anonymous 2:

"I think your article ["Investigate Barack's Kenyan Connections!"] is a pathetic bunch of trash."

"...your blog says:

'I suggest a number 3. That Barack Obama is a media darling, has direct connections to Kenya and Odinga, and the press doesn't want American voters to be aware of this connection.'

"'Bottom line: Investigate Barack's Kenyan connections!'

"You're a complete idiot. Get help quickly."

The media used to cover relatives of serious presidential aspirants, regardless of political party. Examples: Richard Nixon's brother Donald, JFK's whole family, LBJ's brother Sam, Jimmy Carter's brother Billy.

Should there by an exemption from such scrutiny for presidential aspirants with a Kenyan father?

I don't think so.

With the ladies on my side and THESE men against me, I must have gotten it right!
