API or African Press International has made false claims that they have a tape of Michelle Obama making some kind of incriminating statements about Barack Obama. From the day they said they had this tape they have been star of the conspiracy theory blogosphere. Problem is, the tape doesn’t exist and they have made up a different excuse on almost a daily basis on why they will release the tape the next day. Sad enough, there are people dumb enough to believe them.

Michelle Obama is alleged to have placed this damaging phone call to a news agency called API, “African Press International.” Okay, let’s check them out.
Well, that’s odd. A self-described “international” media organization – using a WordPress blog site?
That’s odd. They’re based in Norway. No African, other European, or African bureaus. Their site promises that at some unspecified future date they “will have will have five branch offices spread as follows: East, Central, West, Southern Africa and one in the United Kingdom.”
Their home page features a hideously amateurish series of photos of “African” looking people, with the caption “Our News Team”. No-one is identified. None of the click-through ID links work. Readers are invited to register to become “Corresspondents” (sic).
No editorial board is named. Only one actual name is cited: their “”CHIEF EDITOR KORIR”, who ” IS A MEMBER OF INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS AND EDITORS INTERNATIONAL.”
A review of their archives reviews a curious, patched together assortment of press clippings and releases on various topics. However, their top and ongoing American news story is anti-Obama coverage that essentially reproduces, uncritically,most of the major smears promulgated over the last year.
The “African Press International” is owned by “The Rainbow Foundation”, to which they provide a link – which turns out to be a website created last week, on another WordPress blog spot. The “Foundation” lists a number of objectives that oddly have nothing to do with Obama or US politics. They also list a number of “projects” being run by the Rainbow foundation: however, it turns out there AREN’T any actual project. What there is a list of countries where they say they’re GOING to run projects at some unspecified future date – but NO projects.
Now, there IS another “Rainbow Foundation” – NOT the one that “owns” African Press International, but an authentic charity. And THEIR website has an urgent note up warning folks of a fraudulent “Rainbow Foundation”, soliciting funds and making claims using their name.
So we have allegations being made by “news agency” on a blogsite, owned by a “Foundation” that claims to have been in operation since 1995, but whose website was only set up last week – a foundation WITHOUT ANY PROJECTS except a website that smears Obama, and apparently appropriating the name of a real children’s charity. In short, an obvious fraud run by lying, anti-Obama scumbags.
Gosh. That’s a pretty compelling source. It’s certainly easy to see why a First-Lady-In-Waiting would break campaign strategy to call and harass a fraudulent blogsite masquerading as a news agency run by a fake foundation.
Its fairly simple for people that aren’t sitting in a basement with tin foil on their heads to protect them from the government mind control. API is a SCAM and has no tape of Michelle Obama to release. And you can bank on that Missy lol
