Wouldn't Obama Rather Talk About
May 18, 2012
RUSH: At the end of the program yesterday I just casually glanced at the Drudge Report and the story was up about Obama and when he was first trying to get a book published,
some blurb written by a literary agent described him as born in Kenya.And the accepted reality is that Obama was born in Hawaii.
Now, it was the Breitbart website that published and found --to vet Obama this campaign because the media hadn't done so.
The media has never vetted so he decided he was going to, as a public service and part of his website empire sense of duty, his business charge.
And they found this pamphlet advertised a number of forthcoming books by a number of forthcoming people, some of them well known,
and the blurb on Obama clearly says that he was born in Kenya.
It's accepted that he was born in Hawaii. So the question is, how did this happen?
And that's what a lot of people are trying to figure out.
Why in the world would the blurb say he was born in Kenya when he wasn't?
No, Dawn, it's not because he was. There has to be a reason for this. You know what I think it is?
He wasn't born in Kenya.
The same thing Elizabeth Warren's trying to do.
I think this is why we're not seeing grade transcripts.
I think there's a whole lot of affirmative action going on here with Obama.
I don't think they want us to see the courses that he took.
Not so much what his grades were, but I don't think they want us to see the courses the guy took.
They don't want us to see what he wrote.
They don't want us to see what courses he took.
It's not so much the grades, but this business of saying and telling his literary agent --
'cause this was up for years, it was not just up for a short period of time.And what it really indicates is that the guy will lie. He will exaggerate.
It's just an effort to make himself sound more exotic.
It's like Ed Klein in the book The Amateur.
One of the things Obama says to Jeremiah Wright is, (imitating Obama)
"Well, your problem, Reverend, is you have to tell the truth. Roger Simon, who blog posts at Pajamas Media, PJ Media, has a theory that --
As a politician, I don't have to tell the truth."
and I actually read the theory. I found it on PowerLine so I'm getting this thirdhand,but Simon's theory is that Obama had an
"incentive to pass himself off as African, rather than merely African-American. see, that's what I think,
Perhaps the explanation goes back to his college and law school days, which remain weirdly shrouded in mystery, deemed off-limits by liberal reporters and editors.
Perhaps Obama took advantage of a scholarship -- or, I would add, an affirmative action opportunity --"
"-- that was available only to those born in Africa."so he had to say he was born in Africa because so much of what he got,
admissions to school and who knows what else,was based on the fact that he told 'em he was from Africa, not just African-American, but that he was an African.
So, just like Elizabeth Warren, who says she's one-thirty-second Cherokee because she wants some benefit to accrue to her via affirmative action.
And she only says she's Cherokee because her parents told her, grandparents, somebody in her family told her.
There's no evidence of it. A genealogical trace will not establish it, a genuine one.
But I think it all boils down to the fact that Obama told some tall tales way back when, and one of them was he was born in Africa.
And here he is trying to score a book deal. That's money.
And in order to hold onto what he already had, because he had secured it by virtue of the magic
or the exotic aspects of being born in a foreign country, had to carry it forward.
The bottom line is, the guy will exaggerate, make it up, lie, what have you.
That's the lesson to be learned here.
What have we learned about Obama from his own books?
He shoves little girls. Well, when he goes out there and says that one of the things that he heard Jeremiah Wright say that grabbed him,
He split a couple lips in his day, beaten people up.
He admits to drunk driving, wandering the streets on gin.
He admits to doing some blow, a little cocaine.
He admits to hating white people.
the thing that Jeremiah Wright said that inspired Barack Obama by his own admission was,
was Wright's claim that this was a world run by white man's greed.Well, he's got a little problem there with white people, then.
So shoving girls, splitting lips, driving drunk, doing some blow, hating on white people,
it's a shame Obama wasn't a Republican.Eating dog. Yes, eating dog.
Which, of course, is far less problematic than putting your dog in a cage on the roof of the family sedan What is it, white man's greed runs a world in need. Is that it?
and driving down the highway with it, which is what Romney did.
See, if Obama were a Republican, the entire world would know every detail of his life,
and the media would be spending countless amounts of money going back however many years they had to
to find out whatever kind of dirt there was on Obama.
Something like that.
Maybe this business he was born in Kenya, maybe it was just compression, you know, like his girlfriend in the book.
Maybe he was just writing it himself as a composite.
Here. For those of you new to the program, just hearing for the first time,that Obama loved Jeremiah Wright when he said, this is a world in need run by white man's greed or what have you, Here is state senator, Illinois, Barack Obama, describing that sermon by Reverend Wright.
here, from Obama's book, The Audacity of Hope, the audio version of the book.
OBAMA: "The painting depicts a harpist," Reverend Wright explained,
"a woman who, at first glance, appears to be sitting atop a great mountain.
Until you take a closer look and see that the woman is bruised and bloodied,
dressed in tattered rags, the harp reduced to a single frayed string.
Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below,
where everywhere are the ravages of famine, the drumbeat of war, a world groaning under strife and deprivation.
It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year,
where white folks' greed runs a world in need,
apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere ...
That's the world on which hope sits."
And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world.
RUSH: Obama wrote that, he's reading his own autobiography.
I don't even think this way.
A woman who at first glance appears to sitting atop a great mountain, 'til you take a closer look and see the woman bruised and bloodied.
Is that what you see when you see a woman? Bruised and bloodied, dressed in tattered rags, the harp she's playing reduced to a single frayed string?
Oh, the horrors of being alive, the horrors of living.
Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below where everywhere are the ravages of famine.
So no matter where you look in Obama's world, or Reverend Wright's world,
you see starving, one-string harps, women wearing tattered robes and clothes.
We're not even talking about Obama's relatives in Kenya yet.
It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year.
Get a little capitalism in Haiti. Where white folks' greed runs a world in need.
Get rid of all the dictator types, get some capitalism in there.
How much charity has gone into Haiti, and where did it end up but down a hole?
Obama quoting Reverend Wright here in all this.
He said that's when Reverend Wright had him.
I know we're not supposed to be talking about this.
RUSH: I want to go back to this Obama in Kenya thing for one minute
and one of the reasons I didn't open the program with it, folks.If you're Barack Obama, wouldn't you rather have people asking where you were born
than what you're planning to do to fix the economy?
Wouldn't you rather people get all absorbed and sidetracked on some blurb in a literary pitch years and years ago?
I can see Obama and his boys sitting in the White House saying,
"You know, let's have some fun with the birthers.
Let's go ahead and release this thing.
This will keep them occupied the rest of the week and all the way through the weekend,
and that's two or three more days we bought where
they're not talking about how bad we're doing on the economy."

Rush, I disagree with you IF you think Obama wasn't born in Kenya.
But I do agree with you that it's a political delaying tactic.
Rush, I disagree with you IF you're suggesting that it's not a serious issue.
But I'm not sure you're saying that.
Here's you some more sources and FACTS.
People can go to www.scribd.com and read their pages 20 thru 32 ,
For those of you who don't know, remember this:
The Democrats knew about this BEFORE Obama was elected in 2008!
8 Congressional attempts from June 2004 to February 2008 to alter Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution, proves
that the DNC knew that Obama was born in Kenya.
Read it for yourself.
Then look at these links.
1. June 11, 2003, Rep. Snyder, Vic (D) 108th congress, H.J.Res. 59
2. Sep 3, 2003, Rep. Conyers, John Jr., (D) H.J.Res. 67
3. Feb 25, 2005, Sen. Nickles, Don (R-OK) Senate Bill 2128, counter the democrats Natural Born Citizen Act - but Defines it wrong
4. Sep 15, 2004, Rep Dana Rohrabacher (D)(R-CA46) H.J.Res 104
5. Jan 4, 2005, Rep Conyers, John Jr., H.J.Res. 2 109th Congress

8. Feb 28, 2008, Senator McCaskill, Claire (D) Attachment to a military bill Senate Bill 2678 Titled Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act.
DNC Presidential Candidate Senator Clinton and Senator Obama were cosponsors of this bill.
9. April 10, 2008, Sen McCaskill, Claire (D) (MO) Senate Res.511 passed declaring Senator John McCain a Natural Born Citizen.
But it was never in question. It was cosponsored by DNC Presidential Candidate Senator Clinton and Senator Obama.
Just before the 2008 election Barack Obama's election team spent $1.4 million blocking access to all of Obama's records
Barack Hussein Obama II is UNCONSTITUTIONALLY QUALIFIED.
There were 8 attempts by Democrats
to try to "Change the Qualification Rules" BEFORE Obama was elected.
They KNOW Obama's ILLEGAL ... AND .... UNQUALIFIED!
Obama's record is hard to find.
Think about this
"On August 4, 1961 Obama's mother, father and grandmother were attending a Muslim festival in Mombasa , Kenya .
Mother had been refused entry to airplanes due to her nine month pregnancy.
It was a hot August day at the festival so the Obamas went to the beach to cool off.
While swimming in the ocean his mother experienced labor pains so was rushed to the Coast Provincial
General Hospital, Mombasa, Kenya where Obama was born a few hours later at 7:21 pm on August 4, 1961(what a sad day for the USA!).
Four days later his mother flew to Hawaii and registered his birth in Honolulu as a certificate of live birth which omitted the place and hospital of birth."
Here's something to ponder
I think it more likely that the trip from Kenya actually occurred in August 1961, shortly after BHO-II's birth at the Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa.
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:
From Vancouver to Nairobi cost in Canadian Dollars:
DL 1115.00 2026.80
F 1055.50 1918.80
T 764.00 1396.00
Y 701.00 1282.60
Passanger Fares could be "FLY NOW AND PAY LATER".
Arrangements could be made whereby residents of certain areas may, on payment of a 10% deposit, travel immediately and pay the balance of fare in monthly instalments.
If you're wondering about where the money came from, think about this.
Look at all the financial supporters Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. had.
"In 1959, Obama Sr. received a scholarship in economics through a program organized by nationalist leader Tom Mboya.
The program offered Western educational opportunities to outstanding Kenyan students.
Initial financial supporters of the program included Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, Jackie Robinson, and Elizabeth Mooney Kirk,
a literacy advocate who provided most of the financial support for Obama Sr.'s early years in the United States, according to the Tom Mboya archives at Stanford University.
Funds provided the following year by John F. Kennedy's family paid off old debts of the project and subsidized student stipends,
thereby indirectly benefiting Obama Sr. and other members of the 1959 group of scholarship holders.
Yes, it's quite clear that money wasn't a problem for the Marxists Revolutionaries.
Passanger Information for that time frame can be found here.
Connections from Nairobi - Lusaka - Salisbury can be found here.
The BOAC World Routes Map is found here.
Departure arrival times from Britian to Nairobi are found here.
Departure arrival times for London and Vancouver are found here.
Now think about those facts,and statements.
The forgeries I'm aware of, are the three Birth Cretificate Barack Hussein Obama II has forged.
I don't trust evidence put forth by Obama supporters.
The disappearance of too much evidence on Obama is strong enough for me to know that he was born in Kenya.
Read INS DOC FOUND: U.S. CERTIFICATE ISSUED TO ONE EAST AFRICAN-BORN CHILD OF U.S. CITIZEN IN 1961!
The documents provided in that article are very damaging to Obama, and well worth your time.
Most of these early "supporters" of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF were party to the Communists "spooks".
There's a great volume of history you have to go through to understand this, and it goes back to about 1850.
Read these three articles on one of my earlier post:
Now go back and read The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals
Are you getting the depth of this Fabian Society
It's deep, it's ugly, and most people WILL NOT ... CAN NOT ... accept the truth.
Anybody recall a press release telling the masses about federal intelligence notes sent warning police about this cabal?
I think at this point...the MAIN thing is NOT to question where Obama was born. Lets take him at his word that he was born in Hawaii.
Now lets insist that we look at how he got into Havard and Columbia etc. No doubt he recd some type of affirmative action benefit same as Elizabeth Warren.
Lets insist on seeing the transcripts, course work, application papers etc. This time, unlike the idiot McCAin, we want to know everything.

Rush is wrong on this. Obama doesn’t need to talk about either. He has the entire government providing diddled statistics to show that HE is improving the economy AND he has virtually all of the main stream media heralding the triumphant accomplishment. They are EAGER to parrot Obama’s spiel. Hell, even several of the most prominent Conservatives and GOPe politicians are on board with him.
As for being a Kenyan, I personally believe he is. However, with a complicit media, he trotted out a COLB from Hawaii that established ‘evidence’ that main stream media has taken as proof-positive. Hammering away on this fact, document, or inconsistency will likely not amount to anything.
Instead, he can be hit on the economy:
Gas was $1.85/gallon when he was inaugurated,
Ask everyone you know about the cost of milk, eggs, bread, bacon, hamburger and all the other things you buy weekly. Has that gone up since then?
Check your utility bills - have they gone up?
Car insurance, home insurance, life insurance?
How much has your 401K made since it’s 2008 spring/summer high when the DOW was at 14000?
How are those big raises at your place of employment going since he was elected?
What’s your house worth now?
How’s your state, county, city doing on cost of government? Have they raised taxes, fees, assessments? Have they asked for a SPLOST for this and that? How many new toll roads and/or toll road proposals have you seen? Has your city implemented tolled fast lanes?
There are now millions more people that are unemployed now than before he was elected. Yet, this government is continuing full-scale to step up immigration. For what? So they can take more jobs, siphon off more money from the economy, present us with a slew of relatives they want to ‘sponsor’ to bring here to get SS and all the other social benefits?
There is plenty of ammunition to shut a liberal the hell up if it would only be used.

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.

Yes, I’m fully aware of his diddling. One might also expect that the fast rise in SSDI claims since he’s been elected may be from those very ‘workers’ nearing the end of their 99 weeks unemployment checks.
There is a significant portion of the people in this country that have gotten a taste of the taxpayer’s blood, TRUEBLOOD, if you will. Once infected, the first thing they do is to research and network about all the acronymed benefits: EITC, Advanced EITC, EBT, AFDC, SCHIP, SNAP, WICs, grants, private charity and so on. I’m sure there are more, these are just the ones I know about.
In effect, their ‘new’ job becomes how to get more of the TRUEBLOOD without having the mess of actually getting a real job.

You wouldn't believe the information hereI just changed my mind.
I no longer believe Barack Obama will be on the ticket in 2012.
It will be Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton.

Obama is just like Kerry
Both wrote books with loads of information about themselves that would make excellent campaign fodder BUT the wimped out GOP will/would never use it
Same way with Clinton’s I loathe the Military that Bush wouldn’t go near

After analyzing the facts, anyone with sufficient amount of gray matter including Rush, must conclude that he was NOT born in Hawaii.
There is no true verifiable Birth Certificate. The one posted on his web site is clearly a forgery. There are no Hospital records. There is no Doctor, midwife or any medical personal.
On the other hand, let us say you are stubborn and you still conclude he was born in Hawaii, you are now forced to accept an unreal flaw in character. He lied big time in order to gain educational funding or some ivy league admission as a foreign student and then willfully maintained this illusion for many years until finally deciding to run for president. He then later spent a massive amount of money and energy to prevent the release of so many documents that would prove that he is who he claims he is. AND then later, when forced, disclosed a poorly forged, digitally created, unverifiable, forged Birth Certificate. My conclusion makes more sense..... He was first truthful about his birth place in Kenya and then years later, in order to appear eligible as a candidate for president, created the big lie now saying he was born in Hawaii. Mr Obama, If I am wrong, I will happily accept and reform my thinking. Just authorize the release of the following.
1. Your Occidental College, tuition and scholarship records
2. Your Columbia College, tuition and scholarship records
3. Your Columbia Thesis paper
4. Your Harvard college, tuition and scholarship records
5. Your original Selective Service Registration form or Micro film
6. Your Medical records
7. Your Illinois State Senate records
8. Your Illinois State Senate schedule
9. Your Law practice client list
10.A Certified Paper Copy with embossed seal or microfilm of your original long form birth certificate form from the state of Hawaii
11. Your published Harvard Law Review articles.
12. Any University of Chicago scholarly articles.
13. Your passport records
14. Your Indonesian adoption records.
15. Illinois State Senate records.

(It's simple, fight or die!)
When a moderator exercises his/her discretionary authority and removes a post, why not explain to us the reason? Post 13 was an image of an alleged Kenyan birth certificate for Obama. I looked it up and my brief research indicated that some people say this is a fabrication. There are others who maintain that it is authentic. We Freepers are mostly a pretty smart group of people and we can think for ourselves. If the moderator feels so strongly that something is so wrong that he must intervene, Okay, it is his/her right. BUT Please explain the reason to us.

It would be great to find the person who was prevented from going to Harvard and the person who was denied going to Columbia because they were the next on the list, if Obama had not lied to get in.
Those might be really good interviews.

Here is a link to the debate on Free Republic after that case was dismissed on Oct. 29, 2009, and it took me some time to find it.
From what I can decipher, Judge David O. Carter had indirect ties
to the Obama Administration.
"Judge Carter, ... at least made clear where this issue should be taken."
