'Obama was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii': President claims he WAS born in Africa
Mail Online ^ | 17 May 2012 | Beth Stebner

Posted on 05/17/2012 1:43:58 PM PDT by Brown Deer

In the cover for a 1991 booklet, President Obama is billed as ‘the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, (who) was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.’

‘It is evidence – not of the President’s foreign origin, but that Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.’

President Obama released his birth certificate to the public last April. He said during a press briefing at the time that he was ‘puzzled at the degree to which this thing just keeps going on.’ He said: ‘We’ve had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961, in Kapiolani Hospital.’

The internet took to the Breitbart story like wildfire, with both the left and right coming up with heated responses to the article. Media Matters for America, a politically progressive watchdog group, called the article ‘the latest instalment of the self-serious and wildly incompetent Breitbart.com-let “vetting” of President Obama.’ They point out an article published February 6, 1990 in the New York Times, which declares that Mr Obama, 28, was elected as the first black president to The Harvard Law Review. It read: ‘His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr Obama was born in Hawaii.’ Mr Obama submitted a book proposal to Simon & Schuster imprint Poseidon Press worth more than six figures in November 1990. The book, tentatively called Journeys In Black And White, was later abandoned for the autobiography Dreams From My Father.

A serious political candidate would make this a campaign issue.

Romney won't.

is this the reason we’ve been hit with the elizabeth warren 1/32 indian bs? they knew this was coming so they tried to get out in front of it... claiming 0failure just said he was born in kenya to get liberal ‘street cred’?

not to mention... i’m still waiting on any rational explanation how a single US parent makes someone a natural born citizen. he’s british by descent as well as American... at best.

most Americans have never dealt with these issues, as most Americans are natural born citizens... and they count on that ignorance to continue their fraud

He doesn’t need to bring it up. . . the MSM is getting ready to throw O under the bus themselves. I’ve been saying for months and months here that Bill/Hill are ready willing and able. They want him out, and so do the left. It’s their only chance to come close to a win and they know it.

This is the LOSER McCain strategy. Mitt got the memo that Hussein NEEDS more time and another term.

Arrest him for fraud. Confiscate his goods. A county sheriff could.

Arrest Pelosi and string her up by her toenails.

All Congresspeople should act or resign, as they are guilty of abusing the public’s trust.

There is no do over.

Had ANY of us done anything like misrepresent ourselves, we’d be fired and perhaps imprisoned if we were acting in a fiduciary or legal capacity.

This booklet is true and valid. No speakers’ bureau would publish or represent someone without vetting/verifying info for accuracy.

And pay attention to FReepers who say, ‘but, but...’ or don’t believe this or have an argument about this.

There is nothing to argue over.

And, in short, he was a foreign student when it benefited him and an “American” when it benefited him all without ever actually changing his true citizenship status...

I have seen a pitiful LOT of “freepers” saying just that, and with major ‘rat-like derision for effect.

I think they thought that as long as Barak’s mother was American, he was. Then it came as a complete surprise to learn that there were technicalities that disqualified him so everyone had to scramble for a new story and a birth certificate.

Back to the thread; everyone will want to see # 6 .

Thanks, Brown Deer. No surprise since media have known all along. Wonder why Drudge announced it? What's his motive? Who directs his activities?

Do we hear Hil and Bill in the background?

Hopefully while they are confirming the booklet and authenticating it, they will run across another item or two. The “blue-book” should cause them to pause, think and question.

This is a big story. Despite what the left and media would have us believe, this is huge. The circumstantial evidence is reaching the tipping point of being overwhelming. There is a high likelihood that the birthers have been right all along.

Oddly it is the left who are most at risk from the damage. Any future president could remove Sotomayor and Kagan from the bench, and all other Federal judges appointed by Obama. There would be no recourse from the courts against this move because if Obama is legally ineligible the courts themselves would be the corrupted entity.

The next president (or any future president) could also simply void all of Obama’s legislation without intervention from the courts. It would take an impeachment to overturn the rulings of said future president. And that might be a hard one to pulloff considering evidence would need to be presented to prove his U.S. birth. Something that has so far eluded Mr. Obama.

At some point even the halfwitted likes of Brian Williams and Diane Sawyer would have to realize that this man may very well have been born in Kenya, and in fact is not eligible to hold the office of President. When they face that realization they may realize that the person most duped and abused in all of this was in fact the talking heads of the media.

It’s kind of priceless in a way to observe someone so obviously devoid of either character or intelligence founder around this issue.

Whether he was born in Hawaii or Kenya, Obama has claimed both at various times to advance himself, and both cannot be true. This story, at the least, shows BO’s utter lack of veracity.
