Well, Jerome Corsi, or simply “Jerry“, as he is known to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and The Cold Case Posse has done gone and found some more rock-solid evidence that Obama, or some other foreign student with a strange sounding name, was born in either Kenya, or maybe Indonesia, was helped out by the socialist Ayers family, and that the young black man said he was going to be President one day.
Corsi’s source this time, is 69 year old, retired Chicago postman, Allen Hulton. Here is an excerpt from the story:
Sometimes Mary [Ayers] would be out when I delivered the mail, and we would exchange a few words on occasion,” he says, recalling that she liked to talk about her family. “One day, Mary came to the door when I came up to the house with the mail,” he remembers. “After a greeting, she started enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student they were helping out, and she referred to him as a foreign student.”
Hulton assumed that by “helping” the student, Mary Ayers meant she and her husband were financially supporting the black foreign-exchange student with his education. He says that Mary Ayers told him the student’s name, but that it was a “strange name” that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him.“I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him,” Hulton says. “And I believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection.”)
Hulton remembers asking the young man what his plans were for the future. “He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says.
“There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it – he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way,” Hulton says. “It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged.”
During the 2008 presidential campaign, Hulton observed several news reports detailing the relationship between Obama and Bill Ayers, and he recalled the encounter with the young man in front of Tom and Mary Ayers’ home.“The facial and physical characteristics, as well as candidate Obama’s voice, matched that of the young black male I met in front of the Ayers’ home,” Hulton says in the affidavit he signed Nov. 12, 2011, for Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation.
“I am positive that the black male I spoke with in front of the Ayers’ house that day was indeed a young Barack Obama.”
The rest of this fascinating story, including all the Ayers’ Family background, and a video excerpt of an interview between Jerry Corsi and Hulton can be found here:
This is the kind of thing, a sworn affidavit, that technically might meet the definition of evidence, but has little in the way of what the lawyers call probative value. Assuming it was even admissible. West’s Encyclopedia of American Law (2008) defines probative as:
Evidence has probative value if it tends to prove an issue. However, probative value may refer to whether the evidence is admissible. Rules of evidence generally state that relevant evidence, which tends to prove or disprove an alleged fact, may be excluded if its probative value is substantially outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice, confusion of the issues, or misleading the jury, or by considerations of undue delay, waste of time, or needless presentation of cumulative evidence. A trial court must use a Balancing test to make this determination, but rules of evidence generally require that relevant evidence with probative value be excluded only if it is substantially outweighed by one of the dangers described in the rule.

But, because all the really fun information came to Hulton via Mary Ayers, who died in 2000, this is hearsay evidence. Hulton is not able to testify of his own knowledge whether or not the person truly was a foreign student, or where he was from, because all this information came from the deceased Mary Ayers. Hulton can’t provide probative evidence of the name of the person he met, where the person was from, or whether he was a foreign student or not.
What can Hulton testify to of either his own knowledge, or from statements made by the young black man he met ??? Here it is:
My name is Allen Hulton and sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990′s I met a young Black man in Chicago who I think was Barack Obama, and he told me that he was going to be President one day.
WOW!!! What a tremendous piece of probative evidence that Jerome Corsi, Ph.D has uncovered!!!
Sadly, this is about par for World Net Daily, Jerome “Jerry” Corsi, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and The Cold Case Posse. And they all wonder why their silly little investigations get ignored by the major media.
