Mark Steyn: Obama the first Invented-American president
OC Register ^ | June 22, 2012 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 06/23/2012 5:59:08 AM PDT by radioone

Courtesy of David Maraniss' new book, we now know that yet another key prop of Barack Obama's identity is false: His Kenyan grandfather was not brutally tortured or even non-brutally detained by his British colonial masters. The composite gram'pa joins an ever-swelling cast of characters from Barack's "memoir" who, to put it discreetly, differ somewhat in reality from their bit parts in the grand Obama narrative. The best friend at school portrayed in Obama's autobiography as "a symbol of young blackness" was, in fact, half Japanese, and not a close friend. The white girlfriend he took to an off-Broadway play that prompted an angry post-show exchange about race never saw the play, dated Obama in an entirely different time zone, and had no such world-historically significant conversation with him. His Indonesian step-grandfather, supposedly killed by Dutch soldiers during his people's valiant struggle against colonialism, met his actual demise when he "fell off a chair at his home while trying to hang drapes."

Of course all this was known 4 yeas ago. The difference is that healthcare nationalization was successfully written into law and therefore the Magic Negro's 15 minutes are up. Next!

There is nothing....nothing....genuine about this empty suit.

What’s actually quite scary is that SOMEbody fabricated this son of a bitch and pushed him all the way to the White House.

What we really should be asking are two things: who.....and why.

Obama claimed that his father served in WW2.

His father was only 9 years old in 1945 !!!

In an inspired line of argument, Ben Smith of the website BuzzFeed suggests that the controversy over "Dreams From My Father" is the fault of conservatives who have "taken the self-portrait at face value." We are so unlettered and hicky that we think a memoir is about stuff that actually happened rather than a literary jeu d'esprit playing with nuances of notions of assumptions of preconceptions of concoctions of invented baloney.

A lot of people successfully lied about their age to get in the army for WW2. Considering the whoppers so many people believed from Barack, I'm not going to rule out the possibility that his alleged father was also a talented prevaricator, just like the uncle who liberated Auschwitz.

I care more about the "who," than the "why." The "who," needs to be terminated with extreme prejudice.

Rino Romney also said that Obama “means well”. He “means” to destoy our country if that’s Mittens definition of “well”.

It’s terribly unfair to blame all this stuff on the Big Ø. After all, he didn’t write the damned book! Bill Ayers wrote it.

(Probably the first time Little Barry saw the text was when he went into the recording studio to make the audio version.)

who.....and why.

George Soros is the who

The why; George wants to be the worlds first trillionaire. Only one nation is wealthy enough that when it’s money is shorted could be sold for over one trillion. Plus good old George Soros is a socialist who wants a one world government. The US stands in the way of that by simply existing and as a result must be destroyed.
Soros is also behind the effort to hid or obfuscate the meaning of natural born citizen. He has to keep Obama in the oval office long enough to effect the destruction of this nation.

Sad to say, but Rush’s day has come and gone. He aeldom comes up with anything new or interesting nowadays. I wish the tired old guy — genius tho’ he once was — would retire and let Steyn take his place.

Cannot believe you would say such a thing.

Rush is fantastic and the only talk radio guy I bother to listen to.

I love Steyn but he could never do what Rush does.

Why do you feel it necessary to dis Rush in order to compliment Steyn?

That is exactly my question: Who put the turtle on the post? I don’t think it was Soros alone. Who orchestrated this damage to the United States? Obama didn’t have the brains nor ambition for such success, since he was born on the left side of the Bell Curve. Who put this imbecile in the White House?

Ultimately, God did.

It is He who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding.
Daniel 2:21

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities,
for there is no authority except that which God has established.
The authorities that exist have been established by God.
Romans 13:1

“See Sandra Fluke’s dazzling pre-Broadway tryout of “Fake Memoir: The High School Musical,” in which a 30-year-old Georgetown Law coed whose starting salary after graduation is 140 grand a year passes herself off as the Little Rigoberta Hussein Wilkomirski of the Rite-Aid pick-up line.”

Happy to see that she took time from rummaging through dumpsters for used trojans long enough to get a job and get on the pill. Truly inspirational.

I'm sure I'm not the only one to guess that Obama was bought and paid for by Thomas Ayers (Bill's father)....Frank Marshall Davis connected Barry to Chicago through his old Commie friend, Val Jarrett's father in law...who introduced him around the cess pool. Thomas Ayers found his pawn to take back the educational system in Chi which had been lost to a pack of idiots. Ayers wanted a black guy to groom to be mayor of Chi and dismantle the black powers in the school system.

Barry realized he was so good at gaming the system he outgrew the Ayers plan. I think Soros figures into this after Barry got on the national stage.

Just my two cents. The guy has been propelled from being a crappy student at Oxy to Columbia? How does that happen? Then Harvard Law Preezy? Without writing anything? Lot's of $$$ and influence behind this fraud. Bill did a great job with that work of fiction “DREAMS”. Looks like people are waking up, finally. Steyn is great at exposing this POS.

Orly Taitz tried to vet out the fraud of the Marxist, took a lot of ridicule. The Social security number is still a mystery. Maybe the Sheriff will address it.

Romney should stop with the amnesty campaigning. Shift to Who is this man? What is he hiding in addition to F & F ?

Breitbart said ...while you and I were living our lives they plotted and plotted and plotted (paraphrase)

Plotting a ---a fake narrative to hide the Marxism, fake book, 2000 page stimulus bill, 2000 page Obamacare, all ready to be signed, czars to help go around congress and keep agenda inside , .

Embellished and added fake racism stories (and girl friend) to Obama book, help play up racism, and set up future use of race card when needed.

Set up Internet funding, to lack tracking info

Then there was the Hope and change logo, TelePrompTer to keep on message reduce any mistakes, marketing of a Brand.

A lot of people successfully lied about their age to get in the army for WW2.

While a number of 16- and 17-year-olds undoubtedly did, it's more than a bit of a stretch to think that an 8- or 9-year-old could possibly get away with it.

The writer referenced in this column who wrote many of George Wallace’s speeches and “The Education of Little Tree” was Forrest Carter (real name: Asa Carter). Granted, he had been a KKK member—and there’s nothing to be said for that—but the man was a gifted writer. He also wrote “The Outlaw Josey Wales,” which was made into a Clint Eastwood movie.
