Claim: A 1991 literary promotional booklet identified Barack Obama as having been born in Kenya.
Example: [Collected via e-mail, May 2012]
Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."
The booklet, which was distributed to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.
ORIGIN:In May 2012 the web site Breitbart published a copy of a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by the literary agency Acton & Dystel showcasing their roster of writers, among whom was a young man named Barack Obama. This booklet was of particular interest because it included a brief biographical sketch which described the future President as having been born in Kenya:

Barry was the first birther.
This is nothing more than a silly distraction, to take our minds off Hillary’s “deplorables” comment and the fact the Witch can’t seem to make it through a week without falling into a near-coma somewhere.
Obama will be gone in a couple of months, so this is about 7 years and 8 months too late. I don’t care if he was born in The U.S., Kenya, or Pluto. It doesn’t make any difference now.
never heard him address it, but somebody said somewhere that it was written about him, not by him, so that’s suppose to nullify it. Just ignore any truths you see.
A great deal of speculation about the REAL origins of the Current Occupant has been bandied about, based in just such deliberate disinformation being put out there by the shadowy network that has striven so mightily to elevate a rather mediocre student and generally unmotivated spirit to a place far beyond his own capabilities to attain, the ultimate Post Turtle.
This son of the One-World Illuminati movement was shuffled around like a chess piece, in a game he little understood, but was constantly kept up there as the titular head of some “new way” that would “basically transform” that nation once known as “the United States of America”.
But the “one-trick pony” shall not be able to deliver much longer, and a real successor to carry on the newly formed “traditions” is just not all that certain.
The New Deal of FDR was built by men much more clever and more inspired than the Current Occupant and the coterie that surrounds him in the White Hut.
Tweets where former McClatchy reporter reminds Sid Blumenthal that he (Sid) told him bho was born in Kenya.
What matters to me now, is how many libs and/or gop knew this. Not as a matter of rumor or gossip, but knew it factually. If Blumenthal knew, others knew.
He could have cleared this up on day one. There are only two qualifications to become president, and both are documented on his birth certificate. Obama, himself made the Kenya claims, and did not produce a ‘birth certificate’ for what?, six years. Don’t blame Trump. Don’t even blame Hillary. Blame Barack Obama.
No, just pointing out the irony that this entire birther issue was started by Barack Obama himself. And I believe Hillary herself used this born in Kenya issue herself when she was running against Obama in the 2008 election.
Yes indeed. Our overly revered news media seems to have forgotten this FACT.
Mr. Trump must have a file on the Kenyan Klown as high as those stacked pages of the Kenyan’s ‘legacy’, Obamacare.
Mr Trump, WTP fully expect you to go after BO’B with all the force that can be found. WTP are asking a lot, but we believe we deserve justice!
(PS) are you certain you really want this job? It will take some time to sort the good from the rotten apples. GOD BLESS YOU!
That's the legend. It's a lot less clear-cut if you actually listen to the recording. We don't actually hear her saying it. There's a lot of confusion and people yelling, and the interviewer claiming that's what she said when it's not clear that she did. McRae keeps switching between "your son" and "your grandson" so it wouldn't be surprising if she were confused.
Any one with a brain cell functioning knows that this mongrel (his words) hates Free America, the Rule of Law, the Constitution and American Citizens. He is a moozlum and was born in Kenya. He is the worst president ever.
I recall all of this very well. It was and is another open secret / open lie that has been swept away and that the sheeple have been made to accept. So many things are the same.
Fast and furious never happened.
IRS persecution of conservative groups never happened
The conservative march on Washington so long ago had hardly any people attend according to the press
Benghazi never happened
Obongo care doesn’t cost more
You haven’t lost any freedoms
Regulation isn’t out of control
No bribes were paid to Iran
and on and on and on and on.
Lying has become the new normal.
You shot that man.
No I didn’t, you’ve seen it all wrong.
Trump just punked the Media, and moved that much closer to the Presidency.
Trump is showing himself to be suitably Machiavellian.
Mr. Trump did a great service to the President and the country by bringing closure to the issue that Hillary Clinton and her team first raised. Inarguably, Donald J. Trump is a closer.
The greatest press statement ever was Mary Matalin: "We've never said to the press that [Clinton is] a philandering, pot-smoking draft dodger."
“Most of us saw this 7.5-8 years ago, and were ridiculed, sometimes here, for daring to object to the leftists gods credentials.”
Yes, I too was and remain a birther. It was galling to see this punk mocking those who asked, “Why did you say you were born in Kenya if you were not?” And it was even worse to see it here.
But first Donald Trump has to be sworn in. Like illegals, for now this issue isn’t going anywhere.
Once the dust settles in January, Trump can fire `rat stooge James Comey (the FBI director serves at the pleasure of the president, not for a ten year tenure) and then he may appoint a real special prosecutor invested with his authority to investigate Obama’s fraud.
If nothing else comes of it—closing the barn door eight years later—a determination that everything Zero did was predicated on his fraud, in running for an office he knew he was not qualified to hold, should streamline vitiating everything done during his abominable administration, from failure to enforce immigration law, to subsidizing Planned Parenthood, PBS, et cetera, to Obamacare, unread by Congress; and to his lawless EOs and agenda-driven administrative regulations, both usurping the roles of the Congress.
As the rotten, dead wood is tossed out, with Trump leading the way we can make begin America great again.
As we are now nearing the end of his tyrannical presidency, it doesn’t really matter so much where he was born, as much as we can hope and pray he moves there afterward.
I think the reason Obama claimed Kenya as his birthplace during this period was because he applied for and received foreign student benefits.
I think he was born in Hawaii (Trump says he acquired Obama’s real birth certificate for Hawaii) and that’s why his college records are sealed.
So, he may not a foreigner by birth, but just a cheater who scammed benefits.
This theory fits the available information the best, imo.
