Posted on 05/18/2012 11:33:25 PM PDT by RobinMasters
No sooner did the literary agency brochure in which Barack Obama was said to be Kenyan-born surface than the media went to work to deep-six it.
"This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me - an agency assistant at the time," Miriam Goderich, now a named partner in the literary agency, Dystel & Goderich, wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News, which was then picked up ABC News. "There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."
This confession rings false to the point of preposterous for any number of reasons. Let us start with the obvious. At the time, 1991, the Acton & Dystel agency listed 90 clients, Obama among its least significant. How likely is it that Goderich would have remembered enough about a 1991 "error" to know it was hers, especially since it went uncorrected through several revisions until changed in 2007? To make this claim credible, there would have to be an existing paper trail leading to an Obama submission in which he lists an Hawaiian birth. I am confident that there is no such submission.

Thanks for posting. This is gonna be a good one.
Even if Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama had been birthed in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House Obama is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.
It’s an incredible development. How can you get around it?
Yes, and Obama was supposedly a legal editor himself who should have been a brilliant factchecker. His former professor and later, campaign adviser, Laurence Tribe said Obama was the best and smartest student EVER at Harvard. Plus, how is it the error wasn’t caught when Obama first ran for public office in 1996?? Was it only an inconvenient “error” when he wanted to be president??
The clatter of tiny pebbles you’re hearing is the beginning of an avalanche.
Brilliant catch. Two false details in his life. Both were taken from real facts: his father was from Kenya, so he pretends to be born in Kenya; he worked for a small business publishing company and pretends it was a huge international corporation and he was the only black guy there.
These are two mistakes that a proofreader just could not slip up and make.
Legs. This has to have legs.
“Obama is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.”
While I tend to agree, the Obots claim that “birth to two citizen parents” is ambiguous and not clear.
I would like the SCOTUS sort it out, but they will not touch it.
I am sure that if McStain had been elected, the same little Obot Commies would be screaming that he is also not eligible.
With Barry it’s all a mystery. I have some suspicion that Sr. isn’t his father. He and Sr. don’t look anything alike. I don’t think it’s Malcolm X or Frank Marshall Davis, but who knows with this man. He’s definitely hiding a lot. I think the deception started at or before his birth. I don’t think there was some plan back when he was a baby to have him become President some day, but there was some reason for it. And there’s some reason(s) why he won’t release any documents.
There’s another error of omission. Obama was raised in the state of Washington before being raised in Indonesia or in Hawaii.
I wish it was so, but within a week or so, this will all be forgotten.
Bwah haw haw. Dream on.
Eighteen Supreme Court justices have already agreed on a definition of natural-born citizen to specifically satisfy what the term means in Article II Section of the Constitution: all children born in the country to parents who were its citizens. Any other kind of birth citizenship had doubts that had to be resolved, either through statutory law or by satisfying the subject clause in the 14th amendment, which the Supreme Court defined in a way that ALSO excludes Obama from being a citizen at birth. These are clear legal precedents for those who can read the decisions honestly: Minor v. Happersett and U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark.
And besides, this was way back in 1997 and computers were so much less sophisticated then. Spell checkers did not yet know that that 'Kenya' was a misspelling of 'Hawaii' and thus did not autocorrect it....
But calling him a liar is "racist".
One thing for sure: Since his liberal agents have already proved themselves willing to lie for him, ZERO original correspondence from 1991 now exists!
Did anyone bother to ask Obama’s Kenyon grandmother the identity of his mother and father?
Sorry to say it, but this won't have legs.Nothing will be done about it. There is no collective will in the congress to do it .Barry will be on the ballot in all 50 states and, if re-elected, now unfettered by having to face an election, will have four more years to dismantle the United States. Of course, this is only my opinion.
I don't know. Even if he is of Sr.'s loins, that's a step grandmother or something. EVERYTHING is odd and convoluted with this man. He has about 50 half siblings. "Father" left when he was a baby. I've heard Sr. and Stanley were never married anyway. White grandfather had Frank Marshall Davis as a buddy. Mother marries a Muslim from Indonesia. Consorted with all kinds of radicals. He's a mess! And people thought this looked good in 2008?!
Sigh...I fear you might be right.
“There’s a sucker born every minute” may have been one of the greatest philosophical points of all time.
I recall reading that Zer0 was with mom, Stanley Ann, who was taking courses at the University of Washington. They were there for two years. I believer that Stanley Ann was receiving state assistance from Washington State. They should have information about Zer0’s birth circumstances on record in their state archives if indeed, they did receive state assistance.
I wonder why no one has not requested those records?
I’m not convinced Stanley Ann was on state assistance. I think her family had enough money for her to go to college. Besides, a lot of those kinds of assistance programs didn’t really exist until the late 1960s. Here’s a great opportunity, though, to chase this down. Good luck. Share your findings.
I would like to agree with you about the avalanche part. Unfortunately, the public takes this approach to the facts:
I’ll ask State Attorney General, Rob McKenna when I see him.
When people like Limbaugh and Levin are fighting the "birther" movement tooth and nail, who's going to keep this rolling? The MSM? The GOP-E?
Limbaugh and Levin will have to admit that the evidence now is far, far more than circumstantial. They’ll be on the wrong side of logic if they continue to avoid the elephant i the living room.
I have no way of knowing for sure, but I think Rush seriously follows this issue, given some of the hints he drops in his on-air conversations. It’s possible he even lurks here.
He would be a natural born US citizen in that case.
Please flame away, cuss and swear, even toss out a few made up case in point anecdotes, but don’t try and defend your idea. It’s wrong and it’s not even close.
To be a natural born US citizen, both your parents DO NOT have to be natural born US citizens themselves.
Ann and her newborn son flew from Nairobi to London, via BOAC Flight BA162 and then took the non-stop BOAC flight from London to Vancouver, Canada. She then traveled the 110 miles or so, across the border, to Seattle in time to start Fall Semester, night-school extension classes at the University of Washington.
The trip would be challenging for a new mother, but she was young, healthy, intelligent, and capable. BOAC was very accomodating to mothers with young children back in the 1960s. No real problem!
From the Airline Timetable Images - List of Complete Timetables, the cost of BOAC from April 24,1960 until October 1, 1962 was:
Quite plausible that Communist friend of the family, Frank Davis Marshall, was the father or a friend of the father. Nude photos of Stanley Ann Dunham were taken and sold by Marshall. The relationship was more than platonic.

The First Bastard?
In an irony worthy of pulp fiction we may now wonder of our President, Whos your real Daddy? Joel Gilberts full-length documentary, Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception, regards Obamas paternity and will soon be in full release.
Furthermore, why didnt BO himself ask for a correction back when he read it in 1991?
There was no need. It was and is the truth. It has been stated too many times by too many sources who never realized that it would be an issue due an election.
We have been duped, the whole GD nation. But he will get a pass.
Why did they leave this fact checking error out there for so long? There must be a reason.
All the FReepers who fell for the Orwellian “birther” spin and propaganda are oddly silent. Embarassed, perhaps, for being such weak minded, easily manipulated sheep?
These people probably got the Fact he was Born In Kenya from his College applications that have Been sealed.Sort of the same thing with The 1/32 Cherokee in Massachussetts.
Obama applies as a Foreign Student to get aid,The Indian applies as that to get Preference.
There has to be a Reason The Marxist signed an Executive order to seal all his records,Funny how The so Called curious Journalists have NEVER asked him that simple Question,Why Mr. Obama have you had your records sealed? That My Friends is the 64,000 dollar Question,someone NEEDS to START to ask It,HEY you Incompetent Rino Mitt,wake up you Putz.
The same way Obama's getting around not talking about the economy. Bring up anything else to act as a diversion. This included.
All this proves is that Obama will go to any length to not talk about his record. Bringing the birther issue again helps him do just that, and he gets to re-brand his enemies as nothing more than "birthers."
Don't fall for it folks. The more talk there is about the "birther" thing again the less focus on Obama's abysmal record on the economy, jobs, taxes, foreign affairs, and the list goes on, and on and on.
Stop enabling Obama's strategy of distraction and focus on what matters at this point in the election: IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!
That's what the American people understand and feel in their bones. They see their spouse under/unemployed, they see family members and friends unemployed, losing their homes, etc. THAT and ONLY THAT is what we need to focus on to get rid of this POS.
Not birther issue again. Yes, it really is that simple. Stop being tool's of Obama and Axelrod's campaign of distraction!
Kenyan provided black cred, Indonesian got him admission preference above and beyond being putatively black. He was both, one by birth and the other by adoption. If he was actually born in the United States as claimed, accepting admissions preference and perhaps aid or scholarship money on the basis of foreign citizenship at the age of majority constituted an affirmative act, that effectively renounced any US citizenship he may have had. Check the citizenship statutes regarding this issue. He “decided” legally speaking, and that is why all the secrecy is necessary.
The weak minded easily manipulated sheep are those of you who are allowing Obama and Axelrod's campaign of distraction to focus on anything but the economy.
It's no coincidence that they are floating the birther issue again to attempt to marginalize anyone who disagrees with Obama and you're falling for it.
It's a campaign based on distraction and branding one's enemies and you're falling for it friend.
The American people don't understand this issue, nor do they care at this point. What they care about is the fact that this POS has wrecked the economy, is causing further damage, and are watching friends and family struggle and lose their homes.
If you really want to save the country and stop Obama, talk about something that matters to most folks - The Economy - and stop letting Obama and Axelrod distract you from that issue.
It's just that damn' simple. Spare me the birther bullshit. I'm familiar with all of it. The fact that the country isn't in an uproar about it by now should really be telling you something. If not, your loss.
Oooh, it’s all a conspiracy, the dastardly “they” saved up printed material from 1991 saying Obama is Kenyan to distract from the economy in the 2012 election.
Republicans lost in 2008 to Obama because crabby old John MCCain was a poor candidate and a worse campaigner. The very idea that questions regarding the eligibility of a President for office is some sort of “distraction” to be derided and dismissed is just plain weird.
Are there any other Constitutional matters or legal statutes that should be ignored?
SeriouslyREALLY SERIOUSLYwhat do YOU think would have happened IF a Caucasian President had ever produced and published a YouTube Video for ALL WHITE PEOPLE to unite for a WHITE PRESIDENT Seriously, what do you think would have happened?
In my opinion, this is the MOST SIGNIFICANT DEMONSTRATION of INTENTIONAL DIVISIVE RACISM by ANY PRESIDENT in the history of OUR COUNTRY that I recall having seenI personally believe it is DESPICABLE!
Whose President IS HE?
Obama Announces the 2012 Launch of African Americans for Obama
This is a Dangerous Video.
Obama Announces the 2012 Launch of African Americans for Obama. This is what racism smells like. It can’t be explained away.
Would you vote for a white person who did this? I wouldn’t and I think they would be run right out of town if they tried it. This is just some food for thought if you’re pondering your vote in November.
Can you imagine Santorum or Romney or Newt or Paul putting out a call for all the white brothers and sisters to vote for him because he’s white and so are they?
If this video is not alarming to you, simply delete. If you are offended by what’s taking place, please pass it on.

Guess you're not familiar with photoshop, aging paper techniques and seeding documents for misinformation/disinformation campaigns, etc.. etc.. etc..
The fact that you and those like you continue to allow yourselves to be distracted to the point of being useful tools of Obama and Axelrod and their campaign of misinformation, distraction, lies and deceit is just sad.
Once again you and those like you are going to be cannon fodder for the election. I tried telling you, you won't listen. In a few months the media's going to love you for helping them re-elect Obama.
Have a nice life.
While I tend to agree, the Obots claim that birth to two citizen parents is ambiguous and not clear.
Why would they go to such length to cover conceal the truth if it were not damning?
Why fake a birth cirticate?
Why not show his colege records?
Not to mention mocking anyone who even questioned Obama’s eligibility or some reasonable proof of same.
Yeah...like the scene at the start of the film "Brazil" where the clerk, in trying to swot a fly, causes a speck of dirt to drop into his type writer and generates an arrest warrant for the wrong guy.
You’ve trotted out another “it’s just his turn” dud of a candidate, you own any loss that may occur. Looks like the blamecasting has already begun.
