To all API loyal and non loyal readers:

Even if you fill let down because the tape has not been released earlier, I trully will need your support so that we pull this to the end together.

I am not keeping you on the site for traffic and hits sake, but I really mean what I tell you.

If you knew me, You would have stood by me without questions and given me a chance to prove my case to the end and we will see whether it is API or Fox that has wronged the American people.

To those supportive members of the club, do not loose hope.

If it pains some people to be here, then go now and come back when you hear the tape is on air.

We will still welcome you.

Chief Editor Korir

The airing of the Michelle Obama tape will now be done by another outlet after API cancelled the agreement between with Fox News Network, according to API’s lead Counsel.

All documents connected with the negotiation and deal between API and Fox News Network negotiators will be made public immediately our attorneys have gone through them. This will be done in order for the readers to understand that there has been actually real discussions and valid agreement between the two parties.

As soon as the tape is aired, the lawyers will be instructed by API to file a court case demanding damages from Fox News Network for having misled API to believe that they were ready to air the tape, and yet it now becomes clear the network had a different agenda all along.

Many are now saying if the tape is aired today, its contents will have no effect. We disagree on this. It is the contents of the tape that matters. It deals with highly sensitive information, that no matter whether it was aired earlier than yesterday or today and even immediately after the election day, it will still impact on the US politics enormously. Those who have listened to the tape can testify to that.

API has nothing to gain or lose when the tape is aired now. The important thing for us in API is to ensure that those who believed in us when we stated that we have the tape are given the opportunity to listen to it. We are not doing this for the sake of credibility. We are doing it in order to fulfill the promise we gave to the readers because we believe they have the right to get the truth even if it has been delayed to this date.

We know that the same impact the tape would have caused if aired by yesterday, is the same impact it will have today or after today and even before the inauguration day.

API’s Canadian lead Counsel, will be assisted by the two US Attorneys Mr. Phil Berg and Mr Dowd in the lawsuit against Fox News Network.

    Thank you for the update. I have a quick question for Korir, If you don’t want to answer, that is fine. Just thought I would throw this out there.

    Is there something on the tape that could make Obama step down from the presidency if he is elected as POTUS?

    Would something be as bad as he would be impeached? I’m just wondering since I don’t believe the tapes will be aired today.

    Post 5 is right that we cannot give answers, but the two answers we thought you better know.

    However, we are not allowed by Counsel to go deeper on that.

    Many questions will not be answered. It just spoils for us and weakens our position with Fox.

    Voted in Va today!! Mccain Palin!!!!! Everything went smooth except for one lady!! She presented her ID and was told she couldn’t vote because she voted absentee ballot!!! She responded by saying she never voted!! She had to go to a different table!! I don’t know what happened after that!!!

  4. rosettasister Says:

    Good morning, calli!

    I believe Virginia is crucial for McCain.

    I will be watching VA results very carefully.

    Don’t believe exit polls.

    They’re often wrong and may dissuade people farther west from voting.

    Monty,

    If the tape is as explosive as Mr. K has intimated I think FOX felt paying the penalty is better than being blamed for riots etc. if Obama lost….

    I voted McCain Palin on a absentee ballot which is what we do every year in case we are traveling. I think it is a very sad day for America and African Americans who are being lied too by Obama and his campaign. America was ready for their first African American President or female. Obama was thrusted in this position not out of qualifications or experience, but as someone the communist groups, George Soros, could buy and be sure he did as he was told. Sorry, but this is a ugly day for every American even if Obama does not win that he could this far based on lies and deceit is something we will never forget. Obama has divided the country and he will divide the world even further the way he manipulates media and the people. We will have to work harder now to undo all the racism and bigotry Obama has created.

    Something is terribly wrong with fox news. Many people sent emails and begged fox news to talk about the many lawsuits against Obama and his birth certificate. It is on all the blogs at Fox news but I never heard one word. Now this tape if they refused to air it I can only surmise they are in the tank for Obama along with the rest of the MSM. Sean Hannity did the airing of Obama’s history with terrorists so it is hard to believe they would not air the tape and the lawsuits.

    Melly,

    My understanding is the contract held penalty fees for either side if the contract was not fulfilled.

    Mr. Korir could not release the tape or portions or a transcript on his own etc…

    FOX had to air the agreed portion of the tape before the fourth which unfortunately meant 11:59 pm on the 3rd

    Obama is said to have donated money to Raila’s campaign in Kenya.

    If Kenyan leaders are found guilty of funding the riots/killers in Kenya, those who contributed to them will also be taken to task

    API Comment to the writer of the above commentary:

    Please be assured that all we are doing is to be sure we do not land into trouble when the tape is released.

    We are getting loopholes sealed so that we are not sued by any person or persons, once the tape becomes public property.

    In the last hour, we have been studying the following :

    “US Laws on – Illegal wiretap – Possession and Publication”.

    Please release and air the tapes anyway, no matter who wins the US Presidential election.

    There are at least four ways that a President elect can be removed from office.

    1) If asked by court to prove citizen qualification and can’t …. He must step down or the court will remove him and prevent Inauguration.

    2) Electors can decide to cast their votes for the other candidate (Electors are not legally bound to cast their votes for the person they were for on the ballot)

    3) Congress could be asked to decide on a replacement for a President Elect who is not qualified for the office (or one that dies before Inauguration)

    4) Impeachment is the last resort
