Fact Checking Kenya sign Irene Sendler & Cohen

Originally posted at Desk of Brian:

Obama's birthplace Kenyan sign.

The email:

This road sign was photographed in Northern Kenya near the Kenya, Sudan border! This is an actual picture, NOT a hoax.

What a LIAR Barack Obama is!!!!!

What a shameful cover-up our government is putting over on its citizens!

We deserve BETTER than lies and deception!

100% FALSE - Great photo shop work, but no such sign exists.

In addition, the lettering does not correspond to the language used in Kenya.

Al Gore Wins, beating Irene Sendler

Irena Sendler

Recognize this email:

There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive'. She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German). Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids). She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises. During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected.Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.

100% TRUE!

Irena's story is an amazing testament to human history and self sacrifice. It's a tragedy that the Global Warming politics were triumphant and denied her off the recognition she deserved.

Thanks to Chester for reminding me of her tale.

Lastly, a quick nod to a strange story: Australian boy who climbs into a candy machine, trapping himself inside.

From the article by the Telegraph:

Cohen Stone, 2, climbed inside the claw grabber machine in an
Italian restaurant, where his mother, Kyra, 24, had brought him to
celebrate a friend's birthday.

Kyra, from Perth, in Western
Australia, said: "I had been playing with him in the children's area
but took my eye off him for two minutes as the food arrived at our

"When I turned back, he was inside the machine. My first thought was "Oh my God."

"I just couldn't believe what he had done in that space of time. He was there one minute, inside it the next, like a magician's trick."
