Media Works To Suppress Obama 'Born in Kenya' Bio
Breitbart ^ | May 18, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/18/2012 7:40:02 PM PDT by Red Steel

While the internet buzzed with Breitbart News’ release of a booklet from President Obama’s literary agency circa 1991 describing him as being “born in Kenya,” the mainstream media still refuses to report the story, or plays defense for Obama.

Never mind that the agency used the “born in Kenya” biography until 2007. Never mind that authors who have worked with the agency state that the agency asks that authors pen their own biographies. Never mind that Obama has routinely padded his biographical details to appeal to particular audiences.

Nothing to see here.

Michael Shear, at the New York Times, was in full defense mode:

“Perhaps the darker side of politics is always close to the surface … the conservative Drudge Report Web site published a headline: “BORN IN KENYA,” based on a three-decade-old promotional booklet for a publisher that included an inaccurate biography of Mr. Obama. It stayed on the site for much of the afternoon. The headline linked to a report at Breitbart news, another conservative site, which suggests that the booklet represents a pattern in which Obama — or the people representing and supporting him — manipulate his public persona.’”

We presented a document. The Times calls that “the darker side of politics.” Absurd. And that was the Times’ only coverage of the story – dismissing Obama’s pattern of biographical manipulation without comment. All the news that’s not fit to print.

How about the Washington Post, the paper that assured us that Mitt Romney’s 50-year-old haircut incidents were news? It trotted out leftist stalwarts and Friends of Media Matters Greg Sargent and Erik Wemple to cover for Obama and his literary agency. Sargent scoffed, “rumor has it the whitey tape will break any minute now.” Wemple’s only comment: “Okay.”

Well, okay, then.

How about the Los Angeles Times,

The MSM will try to fold this story into the “crazy birfer” meme. We need to keep this separate and focus on Barry the Liar.

So, was he lying when he said he was born in Kenya or when he said he was born in Hawaii?

No one expected Barry Soetoro to run for POTUS the moment he became a US Senator in January 2007, so give the guy a break - there just wasn’t any time to clean up all these messes before trying to rule the World.

Or his naturalization papers if he was born in Kenya. Whoops, that won't work either.

“the “crazy birfer” meme”

There’s a certain irony here.

Breitbart and the rest of the so-called conservative media helped create the “crazy birfer” meme. Actually, they were the more effective group.

“Look, even Breitbart (Rush, Levin, Malkin, Coulter, etc.) says birfers are crazy.”

Live by the sword and die by the sword.

Additionally, I bet Breitbart.com just freakin’ loved the traffic they got yesterday. Like a junkie, they will be looking for a fix like that again. Maybe that will get them over their reticence to deal with the fraud head-on for once.

When he amended his HI BC to complete it in late 2006 (just as he was deciding to run for the presidency) he thought he had the bases covered. He didn’t realize that the amendment would have to be noted on the face of his original BC as well as any abbreviated BC’s that were issued. And he didn’t realize that there would be an L (for “late) in front of the BC# because the BC wasn’t complete until 45+ years after he was born...

In all this narrative about Obama “lying about being born in Kenya”, nobody in the media is bringing up the fact that Arpaio’s posse found probable cause for forgery of Obama’s long-form BC - the one that he presented with great fanfare in a press conference at the White House. They can poo-pooh a literary advertisement that is 21 years old, but they refuse to deal with a forged vital record presented from the White House one year ago.

It still feels like I’m living in an alternate reality sometimes. I hope to wake up and be back in the Shire rather than fighting the Uruk-hai in Mordor.

There was something I read way before Obama became a Senator that the intention was he would one day run for POTUS. They were planting the seed. The fix was/is in. And for damn sure he isn’t going to get a break from me.

Probably lying about both. LOL. I have always wondered about the Frank Marshall Davis angle since he is the most likely person who took the nude photos. Bathhouse Barry could very well have been born in Canada and even be Kenyan!

based on a three-decade-old promotional booklet

I'm not a mathematician, but 1991-2012 is only two decades, right? Not to mention, the article says the "booklet" continued to be used until 2007, only half a decade ago. I ain't buying the story that the editor made a mistake and it just slipped past everybody all this time. Slimey, slimey, slimey!

I agree with what you are saying - we are in an Alternate reality and we are going to have to fight to get our country back. This isn’t going to be resolved peacefully, I am afraid. Of course the long-form BC is a forgery. No one puts African down as anyone’s nationality. That’s a continent, for heaven’s sake. Barry is surrounded by moronic idealogues who really don’t give a rat’s patoot what we think. We are dying by a thousand marxist cuts. I am a Christian, too, and this country will not survive under multi-cultural rule. That is the game plan, however, unless we throw out all the bums and start over (including the 95% RINOs in Congress).

This world definitely has that alternate reality feel these days.

It feels like some kind of cosmic test crossed with a role playing video game and how we handle this situation determines what comes next.

Time to pull out the "Say your prayers" secret weapon b/c we aren't going to do well in the storm that's coming if we get it wrong.

Barry is listed as a current client of the agent. She has financial incentive to cover this up. This has been going on while he was POTUS. This is not an “old” story if he is a current client of the agent. What payments have been made to her while he was POTUS? Why? Etc., etc.

When we were doing some initial research found that some of the countries in Africa with Dutch heritage like Kenya use the term Afrikan to denote indigenous people, another term for mulattoes and a third for those whose ancestors came from Europe. It's trivial but another indication that the initial birth information came from Kenya.

I thought he’s Constitutionally ineligible anyway, since big daddy Barak never was a US citizen. Thus, he could’ve been born in the Lincoln bedroom and still not be eligible.

What if BHO, Sr. was not Obozo's father at all? I have seen NO EVIDENCE that his mother & father ever lived as husband & wife. What if FMD was in fact his father & BHO, Sr. a paid patsy to supply a father's name for money.

“Barry is listed as a current client of the agent. She has financial incentive to cover this up.”

I seem to remember reading an article within the past few months about Obama screwing over his agent. For the life of me, I can’t remember who wrote it or what website.

With the deluge of new internet postings in the past day about Obama’s literary agent, I can’t find it through searching.

My recollection was that Obama changed agents just as the money started to roll-in, after he became president and how it was unusual and sort of a low class, not-done in the industry, type of thing.

But that the agent who was replaced was not raising a ruckus about it and was still listed as his agent.

I read the same article, he dumped this agent for Hillary Clinton’s agent as soon as he hit DC. Now why he was still listed as her client is not clear. I do know she has scrubbed the ENTIRE client list on her website. If I can put my tin foil hat on, I would think he reconnected with her as a cover to funnel some hush money. It really is key to find out what their current relationship is ASAP.

Andrew Breitbart left us knowing more than he had time to disclose to us.

What did he know that we need to re-discover, document and publish?

Why are ALL of Obama’s important early documents forged?

Where was Obama during his “Lost Years?”

Why are there so few known Obama childhood friends?

How many of Obama’s childhood buddies are still alive?

Was Obama a FOREIGN student at Occidental, Columbia or Harvard?

Who wrote the checks for Obama’s education?

Where these question that Andrew Beitbart knew some of the answers to?

____________

To tie the above with some speculative food for thought, please indulge me, (but DO ponder the speculations), as I re-post one of my recently updated comments as follows:

A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.

Currently, at least 40 % of polled American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his arrogant dictatorship.

About 47 % of American voters pay NO Personal Federal Income Taxes. These voters are the “fair share” voter base for Dictator Obama. We, in the 53 %, then are paying this 47 % to vote for Obama by virtue of us paying taxes for ourselves AND them.

In this manner we are supporting the voters who vote for Obama, and they will vote to do so again in November.

Dictator Obama has designed Obama”care” to become active only AFTER he is to be re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).

The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he has already achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.

Obama’s obvious arrogant and deep hatred of America could have only come from what he was taught in his childhood.

Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obama’s past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.

The lack of credible documents that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.

Who the key members of Obama’s probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the Interpol, CIA and the FBI.

Will “Citizen Journalists” such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy the latter two US tax-funded spy entities?

BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.

BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculations: what does your gut tell you?

______________________

The questions we ask
Are simple to say,
One wonders why they
Were not asked,
Back in the Day?

Meanwhile, the drumbeat of Dictator, (in his own mind), Obama grows louder:

regulate —— control —— destroy —— Regulate —— control —— destroy —— REgulate —— control —— destroy —— REGulate —— control —— destroy —— REGU

Tired of this nonsense about where Obama was born or not born.
He is an Anti-American, Anti-Christian, pro homosexual,pro muslim, pro baby killer, asshat, who is destroying America and American society. If that is not enough to get him removed from office then we are getting what we deserve!

You are right.

“Robert B. Barnett, a partner with Williams & Connolly, represents high-profile authors in his practice. The Washington, D.C., lawyer’s clients include Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.”

I did find this:

http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2005/06/hillary-and-barack-perfect-together.html

“After his pretty convention speech in 2004 - (and before he was elected to the Senate)- he unilaterally broke this contract in order to sign with another bigger agent (who he was introduced to by Clinton, they say!). He eventually “settled” with his first agent.”

No...They didn’t even notice that with a foreign father Barack Jr. couldn’t be a natural born citizen and therefore was ineligible to be President. Opps.... that’s still trrue. Will anyone challenge him on Article grounds? Or will they just let him run hoping the Democrat voter fraud won’t overwhelm the legitimate electorate.

BINGO!
I think you nailed it. Frank 'Commie' Davis is Barry's daddy. That's why Barry's spending so much money in order to bury his BC in the middle of the Marianna Trench.

If you line up pic's of Barack Sr, Barry and Commie Frank side-by-side, you can clearly see who Barry looks like and it 'ain't' the Kenyan 'student'. (Glenn Beck did this a couple weeks back on his GBTV show.)
