'Obama was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii': President claims he WAS born in Africa
Mail Online ^ | 17 May 2012 | Beth Stebner

Posted on 05/17/2012 1:43:58 PM PDT by Brown Deer

In the cover for a 1991 booklet, President Obama is billed as ‘the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, (who) was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.’

‘It is evidence – not of the President’s foreign origin, but that Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.’

President Obama released his birth certificate to the public last April. He said during a press briefing at the time that he was ‘puzzled at the degree to which this thing just keeps going on.’ He said: ‘We’ve had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961, in Kapiolani Hospital.’

The internet took to the Breitbart story like wildfire, with both the left and right coming up with heated responses to the article. Media Matters for America, a politically progressive watchdog group, called the article ‘the latest instalment of the self-serious and wildly incompetent Breitbart.com-let “vetting” of President Obama.’ They point out an article published February 6, 1990 in the New York Times, which declares that Mr Obama, 28, was elected as the first black president to The Harvard Law Review. It read: ‘His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr Obama was born in Hawaii.’ Mr Obama submitted a book proposal to Simon & Schuster imprint Poseidon Press worth more than six figures in November 1990. The book, tentatively called Journeys In Black And White, was later abandoned for the autobiography Dreams From My Father.

How will the suck-ups at the New York Times find a way to ‘lie’ Obama out of this mess? You know they’ll climb the highest mountains to protect ‘the one’ ... Anyone know how they can make him look good - while making conservatives look bad, while lying for him? It’s an art form...

Interesting reader comment on the Mail Online referenced:

“Well,this means that according to the British Nationality Act of 1948,he was a subject of the Crown at the time...and probably still is for that matter....isn’t there somebody in the Crown Prosecution Service who is sharp enough to find some way to extradite him to London to stand trial in Queen’s Bench for conspiracy to defraud the entire bloody world or something?”

Hadn’t thought of that possibility, as we all know that The One has ‘Forever Immunity’ in the USA.

Churchill may get Ultimate Revenge after all.

Oops, looks like you’re wrong.

Q20: Are Social Security numbers reused after a person dies?

A: No. We do not reassign a Social Security number (SSN) after the number holder’s death. Even though we have issued over 453 million SSNs so far, and we assign about 5 and one-half million new numbers a year, the current numbering system will provide us with enough new numbers for several generations into the future with no changes in the numbering system.

I haven’t read all the threads on this subject on FR, so excuse me if this has been posted before.

Why didn’t the Clintons leak this to the press in 2008? I would think that they would have had this information.

Also, is this the big story that Andrew Breitbart was going to run on March 1st?

Those who worship him say “He was elected and that proves he’s eligible”. I actually had one tell me that.

None of this matters. If the main stream press, including FOX, simply ignore it, it will go away.

I have seen a pitiful LOT of

The first sentence in the last paragraph of the initial post - "The Internet took to the Breitbart story like wildfire..." - is no longer in the Mail On Line article.

Yes, I was aware of that New York Times claimed in their 1990 story on Obama that he was born in Honolulu. But several African newspapers have stated that he is African born. So today's Breitbart revelation is surely not the first piece of printed evidence supporting the proposition that Obama was born in Kenya.

Noteworthy by its omission from the background info in posted article is the recent Sheriff Arpaio investigation and results indicating that the scanned image of the purported Hawaii Birth certificate, trumped by the White House when released in April 2011 as the final answer to the "Birthers," was constructed fraudulently.

Had ANY of us done anything like misrepresent ourselves, we’d be fired and perhaps imprisoned if we were acting in a fiduciary or legal capacity.

Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson was recently pushed into resigning for padding his resume', and while it isn't known if he is a certified 'Rat, in 'Rat-like fashion, he tried to blame a head hunting firm in Chicago for the (ahem) 'inaccuracies' in his resume' but nobody was buying what he had to sell, and that is why he is now the former Yahoo CEO.

I would give even odds that there are even now, certain key 'Rat figures in the Senate and House who are discussing with the usual RINO suspects whether or not it is yet time to have a 'meeting' with the P resident to explain to him that as Dick Cheney thundered in 2000 (albeit in a different context)
"It's time for him to GO!"

Whether he was born in Hawaii or Kenya, Obama has claimed both at various times...

If he were born in Hawaii, then why the heck can't he produce a bona fide Hawaii BC? Barring that, it would seem as if he has no claim to Constitutional eligibility for the President of the United States.

We're talking about much more than veracity here. Bill Clinton, for example, was a compulsive liar, yet he certainly was constitutionally eligible for the presidency.

A BBC News article also reported Obama was born in Kenya, but BBC edited it within a short time in 2008 before a page capture was thought of. It was one of the first found, if not the very first, of the news articles stating Obama was Kenyan born. FR had a thread on it and I found it once and never again after a long search, and I should have made a picture of it when I found it the second time.

He doesn’t need to bring it up. . . the MSM is getting ready to throw O under the bus themselves. I’ve been saying for months and months here that Bill/Hill are ready willing and able. They want him out, and so do the left. It’s their only chance to come close to a win and they know it.

If they manage to get Obama out, this could also take down a lot of establishment GOP types who enabled the fraud. I hope they're getting nervous.

The GLOBE has published at least ten articles on the BC. Our local pharmacy and grocery tells me they order extra when the subject is on the cover.
Had a lady who I first met as a big wig in the local D party and she filled me with her knowledge of the BC.Even she says he a fraud. She runs a local business with lots of customers who like to gossip, so I did my patriot duty and left her with even more info to spread around.

http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/07/15/tanzanian-newspaper-declares-obama-born-in-kenya/

And I found the ITN video news report from 2006 that Obama says, “I am so proud to be back home [Kenya]”. I notified ORYR who continues to post it online. As he has done again with this new Obama born in Kenya story. :-)

All Congresspeople should act or resign, as they are guilty of abusing the public’s trust.

They should have been thrown behind bars 3.5 years ago. They've only compounded their guilt allowing the poser to squat in my WH.

I don’t know for certain, but seeing as how this particular administration has been operating, I would be willing to bet real money that the various NEWS media including FOX have been threatened with FCC sanctions if any of this stuff ever gets repeated by them.

I see the Breitbart account has been killed on DU LBN on the grounds that the story didn’t come from a credible source. I wonder if the power structure will be able to ruthlessly suppress this little bombshell until after the election.

GO to Breitbart.com and put the links in the tip tab on the right side. We need to send them ALL the articles we’ve found through the years. He has never bothered to contact the newspapers to run a correction.

THe meme is: “ Is he lying now or way he lying then?” Use it often and on other sites.

There was not one, but at least three different statements by three different Kenyan parliamentarians, indicating he was born in Kenya.

In addition, the Kenyan ambassador to the United States, speaking in an interview on a Detroit FM radio station the day following the 2008 election, not only stated that Obama was born in Kenya but also said that his place of birth would be turned into a national historic site.

Of course Romney won’t raise the issue. George Romney never signed his citizenship papers (required at age of majority for those born abroad to American parents), so he was an American resident, not an American citizen.

Not only that, Mitt can just sign a declaration and become a Mexican citizen having been born to a Mexican father.

The 0nly difference between BO and MR is skin color.
