Barack Obama: “Born in Kenya” – When the Truth is a Problem
The New American ^ | 19 May 2012 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 05/21/2012 6:44:40 AM PDT by Paladins Prayer

“Do you know what your problem is?” asked Barack Obama rhetorically of erstwhile “uncle” Reverend Jeremiah Wright; “You have to tell the truth.” This exchange was related to Edward Klein, author of the newly published Obama exposé Amateur, in an interview that Wright granted the writer. The reverend’s response to the President was, “That’s a good problem to have.”

Unfortunately, it’s clearly not a problem Barack Obama has.

The latest story evidencing this is the shocking revelation that Obama’s literary firm billed him as having been “born in Kenya” in promotional material issued in 1991. Joel Pollak broke the story at Breitbart.com, writing:

Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."

The booklet, which was distributed to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.

Now, understand that Acton & Dystel is no rag-tag outfit. The promotional literature literally cost tens of thousands of dollars to produce and is a polished, finely crafted volume.

...[page break] Moreover, as explained superbly here and here, there is now no question that the image of the certificate of live birth that the administration posted online has been doctored. I urge you to read the linked articles — I think you’ll find them very compelling.

Also compelling was what I considered to be the tipping point in the birth-certificate story: the findings of Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse.” As I wrote in March:

I agree with the author. I don't think Obama was born in Kenya, but he is hiding something else.

Hasn't there been some suggestion that Urkel attended at least some college by receiving aid designated for foreign students?

Perhaps he's got a little Elizabeth Warren problem he's trying to keep from taking root in people's minds.

This brings to mind something Rush Limbaugh used to say during Clinton's presidency.

The truth is more damaging than being caught telling a lie.

” When the Truth is a Problem “

For any politician, the Truth is, by definition, a problem..

Having said that, the Politician Obama is less bothered by the Truth than most, having a completely servile media which will make sure that, even if the Truth comes to light, it will be obfuscated, ignored, and buried, while whoever dares voice the Truth is personally destroyed...

I suspect it has something to do with how his college education was financed.

Indeed there has been and it's entirely possible the usurper posed as a foreign student to fraudulently obtain financial aid.

Obama was born in Kenya.

Just like his grandmother said he was. Just like his half-brother said he was. Just like his half-sister said he was. Just like his wife said he was. Just like Obama said he was.

Regardless of where he was born, the larger issue is that a trojan horse got into the office of the Presidency with all the powers of that office.

There had to be one hell of a well coordinated plan to carry this out.

BTW, I believe obama’s granny.

Grannies don’t lie about their grandkids birth.

IF he committed FRAUD by telling OCCIDENTAL, HARVARD and COLUMBIA universities that he was a FOREIGN STUDENT, and thereby got a reduction in tuition or some other perks, he would have to resign the presidency. That is why his college transcripts are uber top secret................

The Diversion Continues.

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.

I’m open-minded, but it’s not that simple. It makes sense that people in a minor nation like Kenya would want to claim the American president as their own. That’s human nature.

As for Obama, he would be willing to say anything for personal gain, such as claiming to to a foreign student even if he wasn’t one.

The bottom line is that it’s a very confusing picture. The only thing we can know for sure is that Obama is evil.

Yup. I've said this all along.

Because, really, would a majority of his constituents be swayed by the argument: "He's not technically eligible, as he was born in Kenya, emigrated to Hawaii days later to receive a "Certificate of Live Birth" which is not the same as a Birth Certificate...but that's a whole other argument, then possibly renounced his citizenship when he was adopted by an Indonesian father, but then later he came BACK to Hawaii, and...."

Geez, I'm interested in the issue, and even I'd glaze over with all of the technical details. Imagine what a 95-IQ-voter who just wants to pull the lever for a Dem, or "The black Guy" or whatever, would have for a reaction.

Nope, I think that it's something ridiculously simple and something that would cost him a major voting block. Most likely his father isn't who he says it is...I've heard speculation on FR that his father is Cuban. Which based on his looks, makes sense to me.

Right… and the further issue is that no one would be able to succeed in such deception alone... there was (continues to be) broad, knowing and criminally treasonous complicity from beginning to end.

BTW…for myself, I do not for one instant believe that “O” is a citizen of the United States. Too much in his speech, behavior, history (such as it has been presented), connections, etc. screams ‘foreign-born’ and betrays a background demonstrably OUTSIDE the mainstream of American life and culture. SUCH an obvious disconnect with the America we all know cannot be inadvertent.

“I agree with the author. I don’t think Obama was born in Kenya, but he is hiding something else.—”

I DO! Only because of “all the evidence” that says he was.

Not the least of which is a birth certificate (you know, the kind with your foot print on it) proving he was born in KENYA. (entered into court as evidence with a sworn affidavit)

Barry was wrong, Michelle was wrong, grandma was wrong, the Kenyan Parliament was wrong, the publicist was wrong, the birth certificate is wrong, all Obama’s fellow villagers were wrong, and on and on, I can't remember them all, there are so many.

Now Hawaii on the other hand, we have a FORGED birth certificate. Unofficial newspaper birth announcements that have been proven to be proof of NOTHING, and that is it!

No hospital will admit to him being born there. HE WON'T ALLOW HIS BIRTH RECORDS TO BE SEEN. Why the hell not? We're not asking him to pose nude (Thank God), just allow the viewing of his ORIGINAL birth records.

Obama is a FRAUD! He is a TRAITOR! YES, a Traitor. American soldiers are dieing while he bows and conspires with Muslims. He has brought into OUR government top positions, Muslims, Marxists, radicals, and every other type of anti-American, anti-capitalist activists. The Communist Party U.S.A. endorses his candidacy! Why would they do that????

The simple fact is that the Kenyan bastard’s father was not a U.S. citizen disqualifies the bastard as president...it matters not where he was born.

I really wish these reporters would stop giving us their polite opinion without any facts to back up their opinion. You either know where Barry Soetoro was born or you don’t! You don’t form an opinion and put it in your article based on your polite feelings. Screw being polite!! We have a serial liar as a our sitting President and he needs to be called out once and for all! Just sayin...

Exactly. We all keep regurgitating all the this’s and that's, but his dad was born in Kenya. Subject to the British crown.

Dual loyalty. It in my mind is settled on this fact alone.

I feel very sorry for this gentleman (doctor); but anybody who climbs Everest is nuts.

One can stay home and climb one’s stairs a jillion times a day. No problema.

Just put the air-conditioning down to minus 0 degrees, wrap up, and pretend one is climbing the Mt.

Sarah Obama did not say Obama was born in Kenya because Obama was born in Hawaii. The birth records of Kenya were not crminally altered and records expunged on the date of Obama’s birth because Obama was born in Hawaii. The U.S. Customs records for passenger arrivals were not missing the records only for the week of Obama’s immigration to the United States from Kenya because Obama was born in Hawaii. There is no known record of Obama’s birth at Kapiolani Hospital in Hawaii, because Obama was born at the Coastline Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. The Government of Kenya and its intelligence service did not erect a monument to Obama’s birth in Kenya because Obama was born in Hawaii. Obama did not represent himslef as a foreign student attending college in the Une United States because he was born in Hawaii, but he did represent himself as a foreign student from KMenya and Indonesia.

Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya. Obama’s mother and grandparents filed false birth registration documents to provide Barack Hussein Obama II with a fraudulent birth certificate from the State of Hawaii. barack Hussein Obama II II was subsequently adopted by his stepfather, his name was changed to Barray Soebarkah and/or Barry Soetoro, his faith was was established as Islamic, and his citizenship was changed to Indonesian. Obama later returned to the United States to live with his grandparents using Barack Hussein Obama II and/or Barry Soetoro as his name with an Indonesian and/or U.S. passport. Barack Hussein Obama II is using a fraudulent claim of U.S. citizenship, because he failed to undergo the required process of naturalization to become a lawful U.S. Citizen. Obama is an illegal alien. Obama is not a natural born citizen, and he is not a U.S. Citizen. Obama is a foreign citizen acting as a foreign agent and an enemy of the United States and its Constitution. It is the obligation of Barack Hussein Obama II to present a preponderance of evidence to demonstrate he is a lawful U.S. Citizen and a natural born citizen contrary to the afrementioned evidence and its implications. To date, Obama has made every effort to obstruct the presentation of any such evidence.

The U.S. State Department file for Obama and the U.S. Customs passenger arrival records for Kenya microfilm were not expunged because Obama was born in Hawaii. The birth records in Kenya were not altered to expunge Obama’s birth record because he was born in Hawaii.

Why does the author go from...

"For the record, my belief is that Obama was born in Hawaii and that other explanations account for his confusing and contradictory personal narrative.

to...

Whatever the case, the Acton promotional literature serves, in the least, as yet another reminder that the Obama birth-certificate matter needs to be investigated fully. Why do I say this if I believe he’s likely natural-born?

Maybe if the birth certificate proves that his father is not Obama Sr. do we get to natural-born, but it proves just the opposite if it is true.
