The Mystery of the Kenyan Birth

The Mystery of the Kenyan Birth

Roger L. Simon

Reading the extraordinary revelation about Barack Obama’s youthful literary career on Breitbart.com [1] — that his agents published a promotional book in 1991 with a bio of Obama saying he was born in Kenya — set my old mystery writer mind ablaze.

How could that be? Why would they think such a thing?

There are only two forks in this road — either he was born in Kenya or he wasn’t.

I have never been a conspiracy theorist and will assume the latter, although I have to confess that for the first time, given this revelation, I have the tiniest soupçon of doubt.

Nevertheless, the more interesting, and actually frightening and depressing, conclusion is the former. So what if he was born in Kenya? At least we know why he lied about it. He wanted to be president.

But why did Obama’s agents think he was born in Kenya? That’s a more interesting question. (Obama, of course, is a liar either way.)

I will leave aside for the moment the question of whether he vetted the agent’s material himself. As the author of eleven published books and seven produced feature films, I have had plenty of dealings with agents and publicity people and always looked over the bios they had written about me. Every author I ever talked to about it always did too. We’re those kind of egotists. But I have no way of proving that Obama did — although I would faint if he hadn’t.

But whatever he did, the question remains. Why did they put “Born in Kenya” in his bio and leave it there until 2007? The latter part of that question can of course be ascribed to normal human sloth, but the first part — there’s the rub.

Here are the explanations I can think of:

  1. Obama told them.
  2. It was in some early draft of Obama’s abandoned book (Journeys in Black and White) he submitted to them.
  3. Obama wrote it in his book proposal to them.
  4. Obama told them in a query letter.
  5. Obama answered one of those biographical forms.
  6. … Well, I’m running out because they all amount to the same thing.

There is one other possibility. The agents simply made up the place of Obama’s birth, but I have never in all my life heard of a literary agent doing such a thing. It’s possible I suppose, but hardly likely. And why?

Anyway, per Occam’s Razor, I am going with the obvious — the agent’s source for Obama’s birthplace was… Barack Obama.

But again why? Why would he lie about where he was born?

Well, he might have wanted to glamorize his past, but if that’s so, it’s pathetic. I suspected there was a more substantive reason, one that would cause him to leave his African birth place in place in the bio. But to take the risk of being found out, it would have to be strong.

My wife Sheryl and I, like Nick and Nora Charles, discussed it over gimlets this evening. We both agreed the mystery lay somewhere in Obama’s college and university years at Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard. We knew, as you do, there must be an explanation for why the court eunuchs of the mainstream media have never bothered even to investigate the scholastic career of the most powerful person in the world.

Because Obama got bad grades? Yawn — so did Bush, Kerry, Biden, Ted Kennedy, and dozens of others who later found themselves making life or death decisions over our lives.

No, it had to be something more significant, more potentially dangerous. What if, we thought, as others have suggested, the reason Obama’s school records have not surfaced is that he enrolled, at one of those institutions at least, as a foreign student — a Kenyan?

But why would he choose to do that? Well, maybe for a grant, a subvention, a scholarship that was available uniquely to students from Africa or similar locales.

Yes, I know that’s not “fair,” in the lexicon of the Lord of Fairness, to have adopted a phony identity and deprived others of an opportunity they may have more richly deserved. But it would certainly fit with Obama’s early need to be recognized as a Kenyan by his agent and, presumably, his publisher. As we all know, it’s not the crime, but the cover-up. (In this case, actually, it’s both.)

As time went on, of course, college drifted away and politics reared its head. The Kenyan identity became less necessary, even a liability, so it was dropped.

I don’t know about you — but this makes sense to me. It also fits with the tomb-like silence around his college years.

But I could be wrong. After all, I am only a mystery writer and, worse yet, a screenwriter. The professional investigative journalists at The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times will no doubt dig deep and give us the true explanation.

But if they don’t, and I know you’re skeptical, we have to keep pushing, every one of us. We must learn the truth of this. We owe it to Andrew B. — and to our country.

Looks like it covers the waterfront. One thing was left out ~ there may have been a substantial sum of money left over from Barak Obama Sr's college days in America ~ so he adopted his supposed father's identity and paid tuition out of it. Remember, the 'baby daddy' left the country early!

"Theft", simple theft, is always a motive that must be examined.

Recently the delusional Joe Biden said “I can be President.” Imagine if the allure of the Presidency was too much for his limited neurological circuits to handle. In a bold power move he announces “Yes! Yes! Obama was born in Kenya. What’s more I can show you just how the birth certificate was forged. I am the true President. Obama is a fraud!” Things could get interesting.

Whether he was really born in Kenya, or possibly in Hawaii really isn’t the problem here. This poser has used his lineage shamelessly, altering the facts whenever it suited him. Somewhere along the line, a Kenyan (foreign) birth suited him, either for the novelty as an obstacle then accomplishment to attaining lesser offices, or to just get a preferential break in college admission.

It finally has come to the conundrum of being an inconvenient question with respect to his right to office of the Presidency. Either way, the lies (and purpose) of what he’s done present a very daunting task for him and the MSM who protects him. His side is full of lies, pathetic explanations and outright collusion.

I came to the same conclusion yesterday:

t would not surprise me if Obama lied about being born in Kenya to present himself as special or unique. Otherwise he was just an ordinary American born to a white woman, abandoned by his black father, raised by his white grandparents, and sent to a prestigous private school. What’s special about that?

He was clearly ashamed of his white family and had abandonment issues with his father. It’s not unusual for abandoned children to seek some way to identify/connect with their missing parents. Daddy went to Harvard. So Obama went to Harvard. Daddy was from Kenya. So Obama wanted to be from Kenya.

Being special/different opened doors for him until his political aspirations threatened to close those doors. So he discarded the old narrative and disassociated himself with those who had helped him create it. Then he set about creating a new narrative - one that fit his presidential aspirations - and associated himself with those who could best help him achieve his goal.

He is a documented liar. Always has been; always will be.

In the real world, people are ALWAYS fired for lying on their resume.

Yet in the post modern world of affirmative action, truth is irrelvant. Everything on Obama's resume is a fabrication, contrivance, or construct...and he gets a pass.

If he had not put out a fake birth cert. in response to Trump, and created a fake selective service document, I would agree with you. We’ll see what other stuff Sheriff Joe’s investigators come up with. Also, Arizonia’s SOS wants the documentation from Hawaii in order for Obama to get on the ballot. I look forward to seeing how he responds to that.

I am in the exact same boat. As much as the birthers hate it hear it, I'm pretty sure he is a US citizen. It makes sense that he simply lied on his application to get scholarship funds. If he wasn't a citizen, you'd think the DNC would have known and thought him too much of a risk as a candidate.

Regardless, I do firmly believe he should still be held accountable for lying to get government aid. That needs to get broadcast all over the news.

Well, if this is the first thing that has raised doubt in the author’s mind, then he is either not a critical thinker, or he has not been paying attention. No real point to reading any further in the article.

This is the most plausible explanation I’ve read. Given that we’ve already seen another fictional Ivy League “diversity” story (Elizabeth Warren’s) fall apart this month under close scrutiny, who knows?

If CNN wanted to boost their disastrous ratings, maybe they could do an investigation into this matter...

There is no doubt Obama is a "US citizen" -- that's not at issue. What remains open to serious discussion is whether, as the Constitution requires, he is a natural-born citizen ... a profound difference.

I agree with you. Believing obama lied to get a grant is what they want us to believe. So, I’m not falling for it.

Bill Clinton proved that it’s okay for a president to lie for his own personal gain or to protect himself. They’ll say “It was such a little lie and it happened a long time ago.” And if it gets really hot obama will pay back the grants and tuition.

Then Romney will admit that he got a grant he shouldn’t have gotten and so will mccain and W and Clinton and it will end with “We need to look forward and go to work and fix what’s wrong with this country”, completely ignoring the fact that what’s wrong with this country is obama, Romney, mccain, W, Clinton and ......

This does have the ring of truth. The two questions most people can easily answer without it being “complicated” are: 1. What is your name? and 2. Where were you born? Obama seems to have multiple answers for both of these questions.

“Obama fraudulently claimed his Kenyan roots to gain an advantage in college admissions and ‘diversity’ cred on campus.”- S

That conclusion overlooks a set of stubborn facts. Namely, Obama refuses to submit his paper LFCOLB to any court. Further there are *many* experts that have shown flaws in the PDF LFCOLB posted by Obama on the WH.gov site. These flaws all point to a forgery.

His SS number and draft registration forms also have likely been forged.

All of those items would be squeaky clean if your conclusion of lying to get a scholarship is correct.

I disagree with your conclusion.

The DNC is in the hands of the socialists. The methodology is to state the lie and commit to the coverup. We've seen it time-and-time-again. I have no idea whether he was born in Kenya or Hawaii, though I lean toward Kenya. If not, it would have been easy for him to release the original certificate. But to put faith in the DNC insuring the legitimacy of Obama doesn't wash.

Of course, the Obama folks would simply announce that Slow Joe was insane. In light of the overwhelming evidence accumulated over the years that could be adduced in support of this hypothesis about Joe’s mental balance, the story would quickly evaporate.

No, too simple, and it conveniently gives him an out, since the great Clinton got away with worse lies.

Sara further on down mentions that he’s faked his BC and selective service, far worse crimes than covering for his alleged absent father/school application antics.

Perhaps the adoption of a Kenyan identity was out of necessity. In president Stoner’s book, he recounted how his last two years of high school were a drug and alcohol induced blur. Under such circumstances it’s unlikely he had the requisite grades/SAT scores to enter college as a graduating American. Maybe as a foreign student from an underdeveloped country, he received favorable consideration without regard to grades or preparedness.

“There is no doubt Obama is a “US citizen” — that’s not at issue.”

Actually, I think there is a lot of doubt he is a US citizen. IF he was born in Kenya then odds are good he is not a US citizen at all. Baby Momma was not old enough to confer citizenship on offspring Barry and Baby Daddy was not a US citizen. There are also allegations he went to Occidental as an Indonesian foreign exchange student on an Indonesian passport. Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship and you have to be a citizen to get a passport. Since all documentation he has submitted so far to support a Hawaiian birth has been fake, I think it’s within the realm of possibility he is not even a US citizen. I doubt if his Commie beotch mother expected him to be President one day but it seems likely she assumed he would be able to do more harm to the United States as a citizen than a foreigner. Without more access to his real records I’m not willing to say, “there is no doubt Obama is a US citizen”.

“As much as the birthers hate it hear it, I’m pretty sure he is a US citizen.”

Sigh (and I wouldn’t sigh at all if I knew you were a left wing freak, and I’m tired of researching all the left wing freaks here). Being simply a US citizen is not being eligible for the presidency.

Big Media is doing its job well.

“Regardless, I do firmly believe he should still be held accountable for lying to get government aid. That needs to get broadcast all over the news.”

That’s the next step, when Big Media and Hussein’s handlers figure he’ll get a pass from you and the rest for “just lying to get government aid” because, after all, we “are pretty sure he is a US citizen”.

Why do we choose to believe ANYTHING Hussein and his media tell us??????

"It makes sense that he simply lied on his application to get scholarship funds"

But there is so much more. What about the Selective Service registration and his Social Security number?

Let’s look at the facts:

1. There are numerous testimonies to the fact that Obama was born in Kenya including one at least from his wife.

2. Now we find a reference to a Kenya birth from Obama himself.

3. Obama has fought in court successfully to avoid presenting any legal authority a certified version of his Hawaiian Long Form Birth Certificate.

Now just apply Occam’s Razor to that set of facts and what do you get?

Answer: Born in Kenya.
