Obama 'Born in Kenya' Booklet Raises Questions
Yahoo News ^ | May18, 2012 | Mark Whittington

Posted on 05/20/2012 4:28:14 PM PDT by lbryce

A 1991 information booklet printed by Barack Obama's then literary agent that states that he "--was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii" has surfaced, according to Big Government. This has lit a torch under the birther movement.

To reiterate before we go further, the booklet in no way "proves" the theory that President Obama was born in Kenya, is therefore not a natural born citizen, and therefore not legally president. He was born in Hawaii, therefore a natural born citizen, therefore the constitutionally elected president.

But then the question arises, why suggest that the young Barack Obama, then an aspiring author, was born in Kenya when he was not? Hot Air suggests that the motivation was to embellish Obama's biography to make him more interesting. One of Obama's former agents claims that the listing was the result of a fact-checking error and that the biographical data was not provided by Obama himself. Big Government maintains that this error persisted at least until 2007, when Obama was a United States senator and candidate for president of the United States.

Obama is not the first public figure to have had his biography goosed up, even though at the time the object was to sell a book that he was working on at the time and not get him elected to public office. The fact that the embellishment has surfaced to bite the president over 20 years later is an example of what happens when one cannot keep lies straight.

Obama did not provide his biographical information to his then literary agent, then who did? Why was the false information not corrected for 16 years, by which time the impression that Obama was born overseas would be an impediment to his being elected president?

The vetting of the president, which should have happened four years ago, is still ongoing. That it's taking place now should be the cause of soul searching by the media.

That this a fundamental Constitutional crisis goes without saying, the results of which were facilitated by the MSM for the overwhelmingly egregious dereliction of duty, in their utter purposeful abuse of power.

They chose not to vet Obama. This is the criminality, immorality of the left-wing, liberal brain addled mentality, that the MSM in its depraved malfeasance will allow the Constitution to be trashed, violated, trampled upon. without compunction. will trade the sanctity of the US Constitution. the country, it's people all for some cockamamie deranged crackpot notion of the way "political correctness" ought to be the law of the land, is an egregiously insidious violation of the human spirit.

We need something other than those birth related documents ~ maybe a copy of his applications to Occidental, Columbia and Harvard?!

Certainly he wouldn't have misrepresented himself to them!

Let's try this. I'm not saying I believe it myself, but here goes ...

No one really knows where he was born. Obama told them what his mother told him. And why might she have told him he was born in Kenya? The simplest explanation is that he WAS born in Kenya.

But she also might have made up such a story to cement him to his supposed father, Barack Obama from Kenya. So then the question would be: why did she have to cement him to Barack Obama? Again the simplest explanation is that Barack Obama from Kenya is our now President's father. But she also might not have known who the actual father was, or she might not have thought the actual father's name would be a hindrance to the boy. If the boy was born in Kenya, there wouldn't be any doubt for him who his father was.

Maybe that all should have happened BEFORE a bunch of brain-dead idiots annointed a brain-dead idiot as the opposing candidate and then another bunch of idiots elected Mr. Invisible President of the United States.

Obama was born in Hawaii. He created and promoted the Kenya fiction to get himself into college and further his career. We won’t see the school docs because they show he lied.

This is also giving Obama a lot of mileage too. While we are concentrating on this which I don’t say is not important, Obama is destroying America.

Barack Obama’s parents were not both U. S. citizens at the time of his birth; his reputed father was not ever a citizen of the U. S. A. Ergo, Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the U. S. A., and is not and cannot ever be constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President of the U. S. A.

The major media covered it up then and are still trying to cover it up. See how the above article reads. “He was born in Hawaii”. How do they know? Hawaii and bho are still refusing to even produce a ten dollar birth certificate. And nobody in Hawaii says they remember his being born there, whereas two of his family relations say they were present at his birth in Kenya. Second problem with the above media report: “he was born in Hawaii and is therefore a natural born citizen”. What poppycock! Media, you can repeat falsities as often as you want but the American citizenry are not stupid, or inclined now to be subjected to further “brainwashing efforts”. Give this bs a rest and start doing your jobs as the 4th estate, please.

Spot on. Typical liberal Elizabeth Warrenism. I have been saying the same thing for some time now. But we are probably in the minority with both the water bearers saying it was a clerical error and the birthers claiming it is proof and/or that proof is not needed because of a Swiss judge.

Agreed - This publisher’s description does NOT prove Obama was born in Kenya

But it DOES prove Obama was (and still is) an affirmative-action race hustler, just like Elizabeth Warren. If its useful to be a Kenyan, then he’ll be a Kenyan. If its useful to have a white, Kansan Grandfather, then he will promote that he’s a white-Kansan-midwesterner.

According to his first “autobiography” he was a continuously whacked out drunk druggie for his entire junior and senior years of prep school, not exactly conductive to either making the good grades and/or SAT scores that would enable him to get into a prestige university like Occidental. Nevertheless, he did it. We’ve got to see all of his academic records to understand why.

I don't care for that socialist Hillary, but at least she doesn't hate the United States like Obama does.

_______________________________________

Yes, it does not prove that he was born in Kenya, but it has not yet been proven that he was born in Hawaii.
It can not be settled until document experts can see the birth certificate, or records are released from Kapiolani.

If Obama was born in Hawaii, what is in it for him to keep the mystery going?

The only thing the booklet proves beyond any doubt is that Soetoro screwed some innocent little brown boy or girl out of a racial set aside that was rightfully theirs.

Bingo. Here is the thing. They now had 3 plus years to forge those documents. They are going to play that card soon.

“Show me the birth certificate and I’ll believe you. “

Show me film of his mother in labor in a kenyan hut and obama voters still won’t care. Nobody is going to fall on their sword to attempt to remove him even if you get that film because of the implicit threat of mass racial violence.

Stick to something more plausible like he was puffing up his resume to sell a book and you will get a lot of traction. But the born in kenya stuff is a wild goose chase. Enjoy your hobby.

exactly! what’s in it for the commie to keep hiding the hawaii thing. He has spent millions not bringing it out. Which hospital? The breitbart exposure of the kenyan thing has the commie scurrying. I believe many more crumbs will be falling out to the world now. Sheriff Arpaio has another announcement early june, professor kengor has a book coming early july, breitbarts say they have a ton more, and peeps have awakened to the kenyan fraud.

The only thing that is becoming more and more clear every day is that everything everyone thinks they know about Obama’s origin and past is based mostly on lies. Journalistic ethics are a thing of the past. The news media promotes an agenda; if a story doesn't fit the agenda it is either ignored or distorted until it does.

Typical liberal Elizabeth Warrenism.

Back in the day when I was in college, it was the fashion for liberal profs on campus to sponsor third world students. They would bring them to school, get them admitted, and then and parade them around. And they were soooooooo exotic and brilliant! There was an African and a couple a Central Americans. Peruvians I think. Mexicans would have been too pedestrian. One of my English professors had a Palestinian girl that he kept as a pet. She used to walk around with one of those stupid checkered head scarves and wore PLO T shirts. We didn't have very many Jews and I doubt there was an Israeli within a days drive. It was pretty pathetic. For all I know her name was Lisa and she came from Akron, OH. Anyway, I always suspected this was the angle Zero was playing. Even though Harvard is full of douche bags, it's still damn hard to get in to. Barry from Hawaii with a B- GPA and JV grade hoop skills was never going to cut it. But Barak from Kenya? Now, that's the ticket!

Breitbart has released Obama on a list of grads from Columbia. Then they released his lie about being Kenyan. Wonder if they have another shoe to drop about him posing as a foreign student at Columbia or Harvard. You know how drip, drip, drip works over there. So far the DNC media spin in reaction to the bio is that it was not Obama who lied in his bio; it was just a mistake of the editor. Now that they have committed themselves to his lie, maybe foreign student fraud will be next? If he’s Kenyan, that is one degree of a crime. If he committed fraud posing as a Kenyan that is another degree of crime. Check mate.

The assumpation all the after-birthers at Breitbart make is that he was lying about his place of birth to give him a diversity edge in affirmative action among Liberals. I wonder where the “vetting” is going.

WE or the conservatives are focusing on every aspect of this miserable failure.

I just am beside myself at the notion we shouldn't focus on what could quite possibly be the biggest constitutional crisis in our history as a nation.

If he is found to be ineligible, every single thing he signed, every agreement, every executive order would become invalid.

What a treasure this would be?

Most Americans live behind a wall of lies. To date, the guy we know as Barack Obama is a complete myth and media bolstered fabrication. No (genuine and verifiable) vital records, academic credentials, or anything have been released for public scrutiny. We have no idea who this guy is, who he works for, where his allegiances lie, nothing. At the very least, he’s a perfect target for blackmail by hostile nations or intelligence entities and is an immediate threat to the security of the nation. How he hasn’t been frogged marched out of there by now is a complete mystery.
