Obama 'Kenya' Lit Booklet Raises Question MSM Will Refuse to Ask
Breitbart ^ | MAY 17, 2012 | John Nolte

Posted on 05/18/2012 4:16:16 AM PDT by RobinMasters

Never once have I doubted that President Obama was born in Hawaii. There's no way in the world that little constitutional issue would ever have got past the Clintons during the 2008 Democratic primary. Now that we're clear on that...

The exclusive story published by Breitbart News today about a 1991 booklet released by Obama's literary agent that falsely claims the President was born in Kenya, is about many things NOT having to do with where our President was born. And one of those things is the abject failure of the mainstream media to vet properly the man they so desperately wanted to be president.

Breitbart News is a scrappy, upstart organization less than four years old, and the fact that this is our exclusive is great for us. However, more importantly, it is a condemnation of a media that most certainly had the resources to find this story...had they wanted to. And who knows, maybe someone in the media did come across it but chose to cover it up.

The booklet in question that falsely states the President of the United States was born in Kenya is only 21 years old. It's less than half as young as the now-discredited story that ran in The Washington Post last week about Mitt Romney's supposed bullying as a teenager in high school.

Both Obama’s were lawyers. Why didn’t they have the bio changed to the ‘facts’? Either of them.?

Actually, there is one way. Accusation of racism with some stonewalling and a backup fraudulent document or two.

Nolte: "Never once have I doubted that President Obama was born in Hawaii."

Mr Nolte, you're a lot more trusting than you should be. The fact is that Mr. Obama has simply not given any valid information on where he was born. The only conclusion you can draw from that is that he is hiding something.

What is he hiding?

I simply have no idea where he is born. No one doubts where I was born. Anyone who has a legitimate need to know is given a signed, stamped official copy of my birth certificate. I have given similarly official versions of my school and college records to all who have legitimate need to see them.

What is Obama hiding?

Great, short article.

This story is begging for follow ups. There is obviously a story to be told about how this booklet came to be printed - who wrote, who signed off on it, etc.

But the media is not inspired to dig on Obama. They're busy interviewing Romney's neighbor's sister's dog walker.

And if he wasn’t born there, was he lying & posing as a foreign student? This issue has come up before - that people knew him as a foreign student.

Obama wanted to be seen as a foreigner. It is clear he identified with his father’s origins, not his mother’s.

To state that he had been born in Kenya made him cool, in his eyes, so even if it was an error, Obama is guilty of letting the lie stand.

It’s what it says about the man we’ve elected President that’s the story here. He’s never liked us, never wanted to be one of us.

Breitbart is going overboard with their birther disclaimers before these articles. It may be for safety reasons.

Bottom line they don't know who Obama is either, or where he was born. As time goes on and pieces come out of what records are missing or destroyed, HI weird BC laws and dragging their feet. Breitbart disclaimer statements doesn't hold up. They should just report the data.

People "believe" Barack was born in Hawaii, that's it! They only believe. There is not one court in the United States that has allowed any verifiable "evidence" that shows Barack was born in the United States. The documents Obama has posted on the internet have been proven to be most likely forgeries of valid birth records.

The day that Barry Soetoro allows ALL his birth records to be forensically examined I will "believe" he was born in Hawaii... until then his birth status is "undetermined."

There’s little doubt that Obama supplied a bio to his book agent which stated that he was born in Kenya. My guess is that many of the unreleased documents regarding Obama state the same thing. A fair media would demand that he release college applications and other kinds of documents to determine where he represented his place of birth.

I forgot about that. Good point. But I guess a humble guy like Obama wasn’t interested in how he was portrayed in his bio.

Sheesh. I hate the media.

Hiding? Everything. Not only is there no valid evidence of his birth place, but there is no valid evidence of who his father "actually" is. His entire life story is conjured. Created out of whole cloth. The only clear conclusion about BHO, Jr. (or whatever his real name is) is that he has lied from the beginning about everything. My own conclusion is that ultimately he serves the "father of lies".

“ultimately he serves the “father of lies””

Well, it was a rather odd coincidence that the day after the election, that the evening Pick 3 in his home state (where he was a senator from) was:

Repetition of “not born in Kenya” is becoming the brier-patch meme. ;~)
Hopefully as information continues to be released it will become the punch line of a bad joke! (If it's not already)

There are probably a dozen articles out there stating the same thing. (All before 2007) If you run across any, please send them to Breitbart's tip tab on the right hand side of their front page. They needs to be able to show this is not an isolated editorial error.

Did Harvard accept him into school as a foreign student? If so, then he lied on his application, and what does that do to his degree?
This may very well be why he won’t release his school records, becasue they would reveal that he lied about being a foreign student.

Wait a minute, all the other candidates have released their college transcripts, why hasn't he? Why hasn't the media harranged him on this as they would a conservative?

But just as I'm willing to bet that not a single member of the elite media is currently staking out the University of Chicago Medical Center where Eric Whitaker works (the man Rev. Jeremiah Wright claims tried to bribe him to be quiet on behalf of the Obama campaign), I'm just as sure the corrupt media will do everything in its power to wish this story away, as well.

Wish away, shills. New Media is here and we've only just begun to do your job for you. Your failure and your corruption is our mother's milk.

It feeds, sustains, encourages, and drives us--and we are just getting started.

The above is true and is reason for rejoicing: the evil propaganda machine that the mainstream media has become has been exposed.

See twenty three. There are at least a dozen articles (maybe more...They are not ALL editorial errors that BO neglected to correct.)
If each time Breitbart releases one he states “falsely states...” it will become a joke. If you run across any (I found one in Africa and one in Indonesia) send them to the Breitbart tip tab.....The more the merrier.

Haven’t seen any mention of this, but in 2004 the AP reported the following concerning the Illinois Senate race:

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

I just don’t buy that the opening sentence of a bio put out for publishing gets his home country wrong. His bio was published in the booklet along with other prominent people. None of their bios open with what country they were born in. It’s all about their resume and accomplishments. This was no error - IMHO.

Of course it is no error (on the part of the publicist). They print the information they are given. Someone posted direct quotes from the site of the creator of the pamphlet stating to include biographical information with your submission....

Contact all “R” legislators and give them the head ups: There are MANY more articles dated pre 2007 stating the same thing.

As I’ve been saying “He either lied then or he is lying now.” Let’s see his school/college records.

According to a small amount of research I just did, the only candidate in this election cycle who released their college transcript is Rick Perry. It didn't help his candidacy.

Why hasn't the media harranged him on this as they would a conservative?

Conservative media has been haranguing Obama about his transcript, but I haven't heard anything about demands for the transcripts of Romney, Gingrich, Bachmann, Herman Cain, Ron Paul, etc. If Romney did release his college transcripts, perhaps that would put pressure on Obama to do the same.

WHERE Obama was born is a distraction to the FACT that since both parents SHALL be US citizens at the time of Obamas birth fails, if this “born in Kenya” is also TRUE that is count number two against eligibility to be president. Obamas father was a British citizen in the British colony (at that time), which later became Kenya.

When an author writes “The booklet in question that falsely states the President of the United States was born in Kenya”, he loses my trust. He has no idea if it’s false or not.

It’s like when the mainstream press reported that people in an OPPINION poll answered “incorrectly”. How the hell can an oppinion be incorrect?

We put this out a long time ago. We ran down the advance, his going to Bali, not making the timeline, being asked to return some of the money, etc. Cashill, Martin, the Oxy and Harvard papers bragged on it... then wiped it clean (like his IL gov records, agenda, appts, etc).

A lot of blogs reported everything except the pub sheet. Those were the days of Bob Bauer’s legal threat letters and whole blogs mysteriously being shut down.

P.S. I love the response via the publisher (via Goddard, one of their clients at Political Wire), it was a mistake, they weren’t told Kenya; I guess they pulled it out of the air; Just like a slip re: his faith.

Congressman Issa, get on it; We have more than enough articles for impeachment.

To ml/nj, the Clintons were in on it; It was a show.

I just read that the authors wrote their own bios for this editor. They were then edited down to the right number of words if necessary, typeset and given back to the authors for a final proofing. So Bambi himself was the one who wrote that he was born in Kenya.

Please send everything you find to the Tip tab at Breitbart.com. They are going to need to have many examples to show it was NOT just an editorial error. That he was living and benefiting from the premise that he was “born in Kenya” until 2007 when everything was magically changed to born in HI!
