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."

LOL! Why would the media do any soul searching?!? They sold their own decades ago.

‘Wayback Feature Unravels the Obama Bio Lie’

Clarice Feldman

Doug Ross of Director Blue used the wayback feature to investigate Obama’s literary agency’s website and it shows that there were a number of revisions to the literary agent-distributed Obama biography that said he was born in Kenya; these revisions reflected changes in Obama’s life. But it wasn’t until 2007 when he threw his hat in the ring for the presidency that the bio was changed to state he was born in Hawaii.

Jerome Corsi just interviewed on radio with Bill Cunningham. Sheriff Arpaio will have shocking revelations for next press conference in June that will further dismantle the myths about Zero’s reported background... perhaps enough damage to not be the Dem nominee?

"No one really knows where he was born."

Every intelligence service of every major country, including our CIA, knows exactly where Obama was born ; for real.

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:

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.

if the colleges are at least partially tax supported, whatever happened to the freedom of information act??? just a question.

Obama lied in 1991, 2007, 2011, and/or now. In any case, Obama lied and committed the felony of identity fraud, among many other felonies.

Obama was born in Kenya as many witnesses and the Government of Kenya have asserted years before and after the 2008 Election. Obama’s draft registration card is a forgery, which is a felony that disqualifies Obama from the Office of the President.

Obama’s U.S. Customs entry documentation has been removed from the National Archives microfilm record on the one and only week of the year in which he entered the United States with his mother.

Obama was born in Kenya. Obama is not a U.S. Citizen, much less a natural born U.S. Citizen. The people who put this post turtle atop the post may find the statute of Limitations never expires if and when they commit treason to put and maintain a foreign citizen into the Office of the President using fraudulent means. The maximum punishment for treason includes death and life imprisonment. The question will be when some of these co-conspirators begin to come forward to exchange incriminating evidence for immunity from prosecution before someone executes them gangland style like Obama’s alleged gay lovers in Chicago in 2007?

Probably for the same reason that some Islamists self-detonate while others have dozens of body guards. I am a bit confused, do you think the media is failing in its coverup of Warren or that there is no coverup for Obama?

He was born in Hawaii, therefore a natural born citizen, therefore the constitutionally elected president.

Saying something doesn't necessarily make it so.

I stopped reading right there.
If they can't get the definition of Natural Born Citizen correct, why should I waste time reading further?

I suppose these Mensa graduates are assuming that if they repeat the "white is black" mantra, it will become reality. Among the weakest minds that can vote, perhaps.

Gee.
Well, O.K. Skippy.
If you say so.

Can you also verify the existence of the tooth fairy, leprechauns and unicorns?
Here.
I'll show you.
Piece of cake:

The tooth fairy is real.
Leprechauns exist.
Unicorns are indigenous to Hawaii, the Minehune people ride them.

See how easy that is?

The birth document indications of forgery prevent the kenyan birth marketing lie from taking hold. If this was biography was a lie, then the birth documents would be in perfect order. They are not. Obama’s birth and Selective Service documents raise probable cause that a crime was committed.

If this were true, there would be pristine LFCOLB and Selective service and Social security documents. This solution does not fit all the facts. Remember Obama has gone to great lengths to prevent his birth documents from appearing in court, where perjury, and the opportunity for forensic examination by objective experts would be present.

‘Obama the Inchoate Kenyan’

It is reasonable to believe that someone attempted to commit fraud in a commercial context when Barack Obama’s literary agency published that he was born in Kenya...

Show me the birth certificate and I'll believe you.

He's yet to do that other than electronically. I've never seen a 50 year old jump through so many hoops to get a copy of his own birth certificate. Shouldn't that have been tucked away in his possession somewhere? Didn't he need it for anything before now? I mean really. Does he think we all fell off the turnip truck?

Your slight of hand won't work. Why didn't you ask; Can you verify the existence of people who lied about who they were or what they did in life in order to get ahead?

Just off the top of my head: Elizabeth Warren, Ward Churchill, Joe Biden, John Kerry and, I suspect, Obama. The world is full of fakers.

From his BC to his elementary school records to college records I thought Freedom Of Information Act covered all that?
I have repeatedly heard his records are sealed?
The obvious question is why seal them unless there is something very damning?
Who has the actual authority to prevent anyone from seeing any of Obama’s public records?

Most of the time discussing this topic gets rabid birther replies and a lot of nastiness but you have been cordial so I'll give a point by point.

If this were true, there would be pristine LFCOLB and Selective service and Social security documents.
Just because he wasn't born in Hawaii doesn't mean he was born in Kenya. That's half a joke but there are countles explanations why he has documentation problems.

This solution does not fit all the facts. Remember Obama has gone to great lengths to prevent his birth documents from appearing in court, where perjury, and the opportunity for forensic examination by objective experts would be present.
I have heard this claim for almost four years now. For the first year, it was very hilarious because the birthers claimed an actual dollar amount that Obama had spent and it went up and up and up and there has never been a single legal fee shown anywhere but birthers unanimously agree that Obama has spent ridiculous sums of money "hiding" evidence.

(You can’t possibly think the Arpaio posse is completely wrong, can you?)

Why not? It is known that the BC is computer generated. The only question is, does the State of Hawaii authorize it as an accurate representation of the birth information they have. And even if the posse is completely right, it only proves that Obama has lied about his past which is exactly what I said. He has been lying about his past his whole life.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but for me, the concept that an 18 year old, pregnant white girl flew to Africa to give birth to her first born child in a 3rd world hospital in 1961 defies ALL reason. Perhaps it happened, but I am of the Carl Sagan view in that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." Granted, there is unusual suspect evidence that Obama's past has been managed and is full of irregularities. It is more likely that these problems stem from a history of lying about himself for purposes of self-aggrandizement in the liberal worldview.
