Skip to comments.Wouldn't Obama Rather Talk About Where He was Born Than the Economy?
Posted on 05/18/2012 1:13:56 PM PDT by Kaslin
RUSH: At the end of the program yesterday I just casually glanced at the Drudge Report and the story was up about Obama and when he was first trying to get a book published, some blurb written by a literary agent described him as born in Kenya. And the accepted reality is that Obama was born in Hawaii. Now, it was the Breitbart website that published and found -- and they've set up a project -- Andrew Breitbart set it up before he died, to vet Obama this campaign because the media hadn't done so. The media has never vetted so he decided he was going to as a public service and part of his website empire sense of duty, his business charge. And they found this pamphlet advertised a number of forthcoming books by a number of forthcoming people, some of them well known, and the blurb on Obama clearly says that he was born in Kenya.
It's accepted that he was born in Hawaii. So the question is, how did this happen? And that's what a lot of people are trying to figure out. Why in the world would the blurb say he was born in Kenya when he wasn't? No, Dawn, it's not because he was. He wasn't born in Kenya. There has to be a reason for this. You know what I think it is? The same thing Elizabeth Warren's trying to do. I think this is why we're not seeing grade transcripts. I think there's a whole lot of affirmative action going on here with Obama. I don't think they want us to see the courses that he took. Not so much what his grades were, but I don't think they want us to see the courses the guy took. They don't want us to see what he wrote. They don't want us to see what courses he took. It's not so much the grades, but this business of saying and telling his literary agent -- 'cause this was up for years, it was not just up for a short period of time. It's just an effort to make himself sound more exotic. And what it really indicates is that the guy will lie. He will exaggerate.
It's like Ed Klein in the book The Amateur. One of the things Obama says to Jeremiah Wright is, (imitating Obama) "Well, your problem, reverend, is you have to tell the truth. As a politician, I don't have to tell the truth." Roger Simon, who blog posts at Pajamas Media, PJ Media, has a theory that -- and I actually read the theory. I found it on PowerLine so I'm getting this thirdhand, but Simon's theory is that Obama had an "incentive to pass himself off as African, rather than merely African-American. Perhaps the explanation goes back to his college and law school days, which remain weirdly shrouded in mystery, deemed off-limits by liberal reporters and editors. Perhaps Obama took advantage of a scholarship -- or, I would add, an affirmative action opportunity --" see, that's what I think, "-- that was available only to those born in Africa." so he had to say he was born in Africa because so much of what he got, admissions to school and who knows what else, was based on the fact that he told 'em he was from Africa, not just African-American, but that he was an African.
So just like Elizabeth Warren, who says she's one-thirty-second Cherokee because she wants some benefit to accrue to her via affirmative action. And she only says she's Cherokee because her parents told her, grandparents, somebody in her family told her. There's no evidence of it. A genealogical trace will not establish it, a genuine one. But I think it all boils down to the fact that Obama told some tall tales way back when, and one of them was he was born in Africa. And here he is trying to score a book deal. That's money. And in order to hold onto what he already had, because he had secured it by virtue of the magic or the exotic aspects of being born in a foreign country, had to carry it forward.
The bottom line is, the guy will exaggerate, make it up, lie, what have you. That's the lesson to be learned here. What have we learned about Obama from his own books? He shoves little girls. He split a couple lips in his day, beaten people up. He admits to drunk driving, wandering the streets on gin. He admits to doing some blow, a little cocaine. He admits to hating white people. Well, when he goes out there and says that one of the things that he heard Jeremiah Wright say that grabbed him, the thing that Jeremiah Wright said that inspired Barack Obama by his own admission was, was Wright's claim that this was a world run by white man's greed. Well, he's got a little problem there with white people, then.
So shoving girls, splitting lips, driving drunk, doing some blow, hating on white people, it's a shame Obama wasn't a Republican. Eating dog. Yes, eating dog. Which, of course, is far less problematic than putting your dog in a cage on the roof of the family sedan and driving down the highway with it, which is what Romney did. See, if Obama were a Republican, the entire world would know every detail of his life, and the media would be spending countless amounts of money going back however many years they had to to find out whatever kind of dirt there was on Obama. What is it, white man's greed runs a world in need. Is that it? Something like that.
Maybe this business he was born in Kenya, maybe it was just compression, you know, like his girlfriend in the book. Maybe he was just writing it himself as a composite. Here. For those of you new to the program, just hearing for the first time, I know you're out there, that Obama loved Jeremiah Wright when he said, this is a world in need run by white man's greed or what have you, here, from Obama's book, The Audacity of Hope, the audio version of the book. Here is state senator, Illinois, Barack Obama, describing that sermon by Reverend Wright.
OBAMA: "The painting depicts a harpist," Reverend Wright explained, "a woman who, at first glance, appears to be sitting atop a great mountain. Until you take a closer look and see that the woman is bruised and bloodied, dressed in tattered rags, the harp reduced to a single frayed string. Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below, where everywhere are the ravages of famine, the drumbeat of war, a world groaning under strife and deprivation. It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere ... That's the world on which hope sits." And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world.
RUSH: Obama wrote that, he's reading his own autobiography. I don't even think this way. A woman who at first glance appears to sitting atop a great mountain, 'til you take a closer look and see the woman bruised and bloodied. Is that what you see when you see a woman? Bruised and bloodied, dressed in tattered rags, the harp she's playing reduced to a single frayed string? Oh, the horrors of being alive, the horrors of living. Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below where everywhere are the ravages of famine. So no matter where you look in Obama's world, or Reverend Wright's world, you see starving, one-string harps, women wearing tattered robes and clothes. We're not even talking about Obama's relatives in Kenya yet.
It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year. Get a little capitalism in Haiti. Get rid of all the dictator types, get some capitalism in there. How much charity has gone into Haiti, and where did it end up but down a hole? Where white folks' greed runs a world in need. Obama quoting Reverend Wright here in all this. He said that's when Reverend Wright had him. I know we're not supposed to be talking about this.
RUSH: I want to go back to this Obama in Kenya thing for one minute and one of the reasons I didn't open the program with it, folks. If you're Barack Obama, wouldn't you rather have people asking where you were born than what you're planning to do to fix the economy? Wouldn't you rather people get all absorbed and sidetracked on some blurb in a literary pitch years and years ago? I can see Obama and his boys sitting in the White House saying, "You know, let's have some fun with the birthers. Let's go ahead and release this thing. This will keep them occupied the rest of the week and all the way through the weekend, and that's two or three more days we bought where they're not talking about how bad we're doing on the economy."
Thank-you Rush. Obama would rather be talking about where he was born from his jail cell and removed from all ballots than discussing the economy? Really Rush, you are a genius.
limbaugh was a total idiot today trying to talk about something that he has ignore for years, the birther thing. He showed what an idiot he is by saying its accepted that the commie was born in hawaii. Accepted by who, the idiots that refused to talk about it and now know everything about it? How about limbaugh sayin’ obama just wanted to be exotic! What crap by a talk radio guy, it is sickening what clueless crap he was chirping today.
Rush has it wrong at the get-go. All evidence suggests that the biographical vignette wasn’t written by a “literary agent”, but by Obama himself.
“...what it really indicates is that the guy will lie. He will exaggerate.”
That is the main issue. In doing so, it buys him time to destroy the republic.
I hope 2012 brings a better president for the U.S.
And you, Rush (and Levin and Ingraham and Hannity) would rather talk about ANYTHING other than where the Kenyan was born !
You nailed our boy Rush today. What a pure nonsense talk program.
For one, the Kenyan birth is just the tip of the iceberg of a mountain of fraud. Rush acts as if this little brochure exists in a vacuum. It doesn't.
Everyone understands fraud. Even the stupidest voters know fraud is criminal. Not all voters understand the economy and even some that do still think the poor economy is Bush's fault, or Wall Street's fault but it's certainly not Obama's fault.
But the economy and the fraud are actually interrelated. Part of the fraud is that Obama supposedly wants the general economy to improve when the opposite seems more likely. It's all part of who he is. One might also say that sending the bust of Churchill back to England is a distraction too. But it isn't. It's who Obama is.
Great dissertation by Rush...but I don’t agree that Obama or the Dems put the story out there on purpose. I don’t see any strategic advantage in doing so.
More likely, Obama has so much obfuscation behind his public persona that anyone looking for a headline can find something “new” and exciting almost every time.
The money flow has changed. Powerful and influential people are deserting the boy president and the drip, drip, drip could result in an electoral tsunami...
Either way, Obama’s a liar. But I disagree with Rush. His Hawaiian BC could easily be provided by him to dispel any questions. It hasn’t been. So to say he was born in Hawaii is taking too much for granted.
yes it was PURE nonsense and I let the idiot know about it in an email.
Rush will never admit he was wrong.
Bill Cunningham pulls that “I know he was born in Hawaii” crap too.
limbaugh sounded like he was sucking up to the peeps in hawaii where he has inlaws. Now the drinks and cigars can keep flowing. What a bunch of crap. Maybe limbaugh can do a remote from the hospital dunham was born in and maybe even get them as a sponsor. Bwahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ya, limbaugh wasnt the only radio jock to spew crap, now they are showing the world how pathetic they are and limbaugh etc trying hard to save their fat faces.
This view is a credible hypothesis, I guess, but doesn’t explain why he published a forged BC. If he was born in Hawaii, why not just publish the long-form US BC he would have?
hawaii was the diversion from kenya but that’s too much for limbaugh to comprehend. Maybe he should get aunt sarah on the show and then give her some tea to try.
The point is that Barack Obama has no love of this country and was perfectly willing to play the outsider immigrant when it benefited him personally.
He is a lying bastard of two college educated socialists. He’s a red diaper doper baby and WRONG for the Presidency of the United States. No skills, untruthful in his “resume”, wrongheaded in his agenda, and personally insulting to much of this nation (referring to patriotic men, women, and children as “teabagging” homosexuals).
Nicely played, Rush. Force 0baMao to disclose his school records. He probably can’t because they would reveal undeniable fraud on a Federal felony level. Keep him on the defensive about that because people will be less understanding about why they are sealed.
Someone shrewd enough to "choose his friends carefully" would always have the opportunity to proof a literary agent's work on his behalf.
Why does Rush have to repeat the undocumented, unproved position that Obama was born in Hawaii? Is this some condition of being on the air?
If a lie is repeated over and over again, it becomes the truth. Did Rush have to repeat the lie to talk about the pamphlet?
It shows without a doubt that he has something to hide
according to limbaugh, the commie obama would rather have peeps talk about the biggest fraud committed in the history of the USA rather than the economy. Rush, it’s the kenyan, stupid!
He has lots to hide judging by how much is off limits. Constantly keep him on the defensive. When he’s about to come up with some spin on one thing demand that he come clean on another.
Such examples are legion.
Most voters really don't understand issues, so the "Powerful Ways and Means Chairman" Wilbur Mills was gone after folks learned about the Tidal Basin Bombshell, and John Edwards is politically dead. Speaker Wright didn't resign over some policy matter. Dan Rostenkowski (also a "Powerful Ways and Means Chairman") didn't lose his seat because he didn't bring home the bacon for his district. These people and other scumbags like Toricelli, Cohello, and Williams didn't have aborted political careers because of any vote or policy they supported. They were gone for things like sex or bribe taking ... things that even stupid voters will not tolerate.
They understand fraud too.
You make absolutely no sense. Did you even read what you wrote?.
My theory: There are only two realistic possibilities
1. Obama was born elsewhere (maybe Hawaii)
2. Obama was born in Kenya.
3. Unrealistic- his literary agent mistakenly typed “Kenya” in his brochure.
As Sherlock Holmes says, eliminate all the possibilities, what remains is the answer. Therefore, start with 1. Really born in Hawaii. If so, why present a fake BC on the White House web site? Even if he lied about Kenya to get an African scholarship, faking his real Hawaiian BC doesn’t help.
That leaves: 2. Really born in Kenya. Matches what his grandmother and wife said. Confirms the brochure. And if he got an African scholarship to Harvard, someone must have confirmed it, at the time, before they would provide him the support.
Therefore the records in Hawaii and the contemporaneous newspaper announcements must have been the family announcing his birth, in order to get him American citizenship. It happened all the time, especially in Hawaii, when it had become a state only a year or so before.
This would explain all the odd-ball actions, court fights and records destroyed and the reason for saying he was from Kenya right up to 2007 when he decided to run for president. No, his mother didn’t know in 1961 he would run for president, she only wanted him to have American citizenship. But in 2007 his handlers knew about the Hawaiian BC, so they used it for their own purposes.
maybe you can make sense.
Here’s something I posted elsewhere, that Rush needs to realize - although I believe he is being quiet because if he speaks about it Clear Channel might take him off the air. I don’t have any evidence of that; it’s just speculation. But what’s in the following post is not speculation; it’s documented fact. I didn’t include links but if somebody wants links I can post them.
Rush knows as well as anybody that what we’re talking about here is total lawlessness, to reach this point. It matters. If people ever realize what a lawless thug Obama is, and that he was installed by Soros - through threats and assassinations - to destroy this country, very few would ever vote for him. Rush is saying what he’s saying because he thinks he has to. After spending a bunch of time discussing whether Sandra Fluke was a slut (rather than the economy, etc) he knows better than to think that the felonies committed to install Obama are irrelevant.
Anyway, here’s what I posted:
Some things that should be known:
Sheriff Arpaios Cold Case Posse has found probable cause for forgery and fraud involving both Obamas long-form BC and his draft registration. Less than 5 hours after telling Arpaio that Arpaios evidence was good, Andrew Breitbart fell to the ground dead. The same day, Rush Limbaugh received a bomb threat. The MSM TO THIS DAY has not reported the EVIDENCE that Apraio presented that day.
Some interesting points from that press conference:
1. Obamas draft registration is the only one that came out of that post office at that time which lacked the first 2 digits of a 4-digit year stamp. (It has since been learned that the SSA has altered their definitions so that draft registrations can be destroyed - a move made within days of Arpaios decision to investigate Obamas BC and draft registration).
2. The layers present on the long-form BC indicate that the image never came from a single paper document. Of particular concern is the fact that the content on the BC is alterable, with changes showing in the same font as the document uses, as well as the fact that the certifying elements (the only things that are supposed to show the genuineness of a document) can actually be picked up and moved around - showing they were pasted in from a different source.
3. The newspaper birth announcements include foreign-born children and children who were 2 years old - with no way to distinguish them from genuine children born in HI on the dates given in the announcements.
4. The only 1961 records of people coming into the US from outside the country that are missing. from NARA... are those from the week Obama was supposedly born in Hawaii. NARA has no explanation for why those records are missing. (The earliest passport applications for Obamas mother are also missing - supposedly destroyed after a retention period was changed, but the required paper trail for the retention change and destruction also dont exist, and other records that should have supposedly been destroyed were not destroyed. In addition the Passport Office is required to have index cards showing all passports issued to Obamas mother, which are required to be disclosed to the public on request because she is deceased - but the Passport Office has refused to disclose those records for 2 years now).
Besides what was reported at the presser...
A. Posse commander, Mike Zullo, has confirmed that the media was threatened if they reported on the eligibility issue. This corroborates the claims of Doug Hagman, who was given a signed statement by a talk show host who said that the head of the media company told him that if he or any of his guests discussed the eligibility issue his career would be over and his life and his familys lives were questionable.
B. Since then, Bettina Viviano and another Hillary supporter in the 2008 primary have said they heard from Bill Clintons own mouth that he knows Obama is ineligible. According to high democratic sources, Clintons were planning on revealing Obamas ineligibility but were scared/threatened away when first Bill Gwatney (Bills good friend and chair of the Arkansas Democratic Party) was shot and then Stephanie Tubbs died of a supposed aneuyrism within 2 weeks of the DNC convention where each had promised to present a petition challenging the illegal shenanigans of the Obama people. The Ulsterman Report unwinds a web of crime and corruption surrounding the 2010 CA AG election which is suspected to have cleared the way for Kam Kuwatas suspicious death, not being found for 2 weeks, and an autopsy not being performed - after Kuwata had revealed to insiders STRANGE goings-on involving Barack Obama at the DNC Convention (where Obama was either drugged, hypnotized, part of a cultic ritual, or something strange). IOW, were dealing with a LOT of corruption and disposal of inconvenient players.
C. According to Mike Evans, HI Governor Neil Abercrombie said he had gone to the hospitals in HI with a search warrant and had been unable to find any record of Obamas birth there. He was looking for it there because there wasnt one at the HDOH.
D. The Hawaii Department of Health has altered their 1960-64 birth index to include legally non-valid records. That birth index listed both Virginia Sunahara and Barack Obama II. (Virginia was born at Wahiawa Hospital on Aug 4, 1961 and died at Kapiolani Hospital the next day). But when an HDOH worker queried the database for Virginia Sunahara in response to my request, the database had no record under Virginias name; that record was presumably under a different name at that point. Since then a computer-generated abstract for Virginia has been released to her brother (but the HDOH refuses to provide a copy or let the brother see the original birth certificate), with a BC# far out of sequence with others - as is the BC# of Stig Waidelich, according to the HDOHs own statements that BC#s were assigned on the date filed for Oahu births. IOW, the HDOH itself has been caught manipulating their birth index, their database, and the BC#s of at least 2 BCs released from their office.
E. HDOH and OIP responses by Paul Tsukiyama have indicated that Obamas BC was amended in 2006 and there are affidavits to support whatever is claimed on the BC, which would only be necessary for a late or amended birth certificate. Tsukiyamas response actually cited the statute that refers specifically to late and amended BCs. Late BCs have a different BC numbering system (they have an L in front of the BC#) and late and/or altered have to be stamped on BCs that are late or altered - which means that the HDOH would have immediately known that both the posted long-form AND the COLB that Obama posted are forgeries.
In addition, late and altered/amended BCs are not legally valid; they have no probative value, and HRS 338-13 says that their probative value must be determined when presented as evidence to a judicial or administrative person or body. IOW, the State of Hawaii doesnt vouch for the accuracy of anything on a late or amended BC; they CANNOT verify information from those BCs. (This explains why the HDOH had to alter their birth index to allow legally non-valid records, in order to get Obamas name on the list they show the public).
If the HDOH verifies anything for Obama, they are contradicting their own earlier revelations that Obamas birth record was amended and former OIP Director Tsukiyamas confirmation that Obamas birth claims are supported by affidavits. At that point, the Hawaii government would have given contradictory, mutually-exclusive stories about Obamas records.
The only way we will ever know what happened with Obamas documentation is by auditing all the alleged citizenship records for him. There are 4 records hes claimed to have, and ALL FOUR show signs of tampering: The long-form and COLB are both forgeries, the draft registration is forged, the SSN fails e-verify and was issued from CT even though Obama never lived there, and his passport file has been breached 3 times (with sources close to the investigation saying it was to alter the record). The inspector general for HHS has said that BCs are not sufficient as sole verification of eligibility, and that states should require an audit of all the vital records and citizenship records if there are any signs of tampering - especially if much is at stake.
There could not be a more clear example of signs of tampering, and there is no possible instance where more would be at stake than what is at stake here.
according to limbaugh, the commie obama would rather have peeps talk about the biggest fraud committed in the history of the USA rather than the economy.
Rush is exactly right. That arrogant, lazy lying pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave has no record to run on. It is about the economy, the high unemployment. Unemployment has been over 8% for more then 3 years. Also the high gas prices. The price of gas was $1.83 when he was inaugurated and it's $3.71 now. Sure it has gone down some, but it is still way to high. He doesn't want to talk about those things, but rather how he can take more money away from the job creators. That what it is all about
very good post, butterz!
The only reason Obama has been ABLE to run down the economy is because we have totally lost the rule of law in America. It’s been done very, very systematically, and the same Hillary supporters who heard Bill Clinton say he knows Obama is ineligible (though 2 assassinations scared him and Hillary away from pressing the point as they had planned) heard from top dems that Soros spoke with both Hillary and Obama in the 2008 primary, asking whether each potential candidate was on board with his plans to destroy the US economy. Hillary wasn’t, but Obama was.
There is way, way more that I could say, but Soros needed Obama because Obama and Soros together could unite the communist and Islamist enemies of America. Hillary wouldn’t agree to that. The destruction of the US economy depended on lots and lots of threats, lots and lots of payoffs, and the communist-Islamist alliance that together had enough money to make the run on the bank in Sept 2008 that had President Bush saying that Armageddon was upon is if we didn’t pass TARP. All that was planned in advance.
Soros’ communist-Islamist alliance has already proven they can send this economy to its death, and that gives Soros the ability to threaten even PATRIOTS into doing as he wants. He’s got his economic-terrorism gun pointed at America’s head and has told Roger Ailes, GW Bush, Dick Cheney, Chief Justice John Roberts, John Boehner, etc that if they don’t do as he says he will make another run on the bank and America as we know it will cease to exist.
The destruction of the US economy is one piece of the puzzle. When you see the WHOLE puzzle - which includes the fact that multiple government agencies have FORGED and/or ALTERED RECORDS for Obama’s sake and that the media, courts, and democratic party have all been taken hostage through threats and assassinations - NOBODY would vote for Obama. And that includes people in the dem party who know how dangerous Obama is. Obama is walking a very, very fine line with those people. The worm is going to turn, and it may get very, very ugly.
yes, obviously things are bad and obama doesnt want anyone talking about the economy etc. Thus, we have had war on women, sandy fluke, etc etc. But, for someone to imply the commie would rather have peeps talk about fraud, forgery, usurpation, born in kenya, over the unemployment, economy etc is ridiculous. The kenyan in the white house is the biggest scam in USA history, he has spent millions to prevent it being revealed, and it is only now getting through to people. People can walk and chew gum at the same time and talking about the fraud kenyan should lead the news followed by the economy.
Obama’s got to be really relieved that inmate #xxxxx received so many votes. It means that felons who are in jail can still try to be elected.
If the posse follows through on what they’re learning, they will ultimately be arresting Barack Obama for defrauding the residents of Maricopa Co, Arizona.
There it is, in visual form - the consistent claim of a non-Hawaii birth.
I wish it was possible to put into visual form the shenanigans with his “official” records: forged COLB, forged long-form, forged draft registration, SSN that fails e-verify and is from CT where Obama never lived, and passport file breached 3 times to sanitize it (according to sources close to the investigation). And all the laws broken, crimes committed, retention periods suddenly changed, etc that have been necessary to cover it up. It seems now that there are also deaths piling up to cover it up too.
I wish all that could easily be portrayed in visual form so people could absorb what it really means.
What’s really interesting is that as Obama was making these claims to prospective publishers and employers, he would have to know that if they employed him he would have to present documentation for taxation purposes. If he was making claims that he was born in Kenya he could expect his prospective employers and/or publishers to request a Kenyan BC to prove that. He could expect the people at Harvard to view that page where it claimed he was born in Kenya. There were people who would see that bio who had the right to look at his proof for those claims.
Obama had to use SOME birth certificate his whole life. It’s increasingly clear that he didn’t have a legally-valid Hawaii BC to use. And increasingly clear that at the same time as people were entitled to see his official documentation (because of school, employment, and/or potential employment or legal contracts) he was claiming to be born in Kenya.
