Kenyan born Obama narrative

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast, and orchestrator of a bodyguard of lies

The Kenyan born Obama narrative restarted a week ago. It began with a 21-year-old blurb from a literary agent. It survives today with several “Wayback Machine” entries. And Barack Hussein Obama can blame only one person for that: himself.

Kenyan born Obama, by Obama

Breitbart.com’s Big Government organ reported on the earliest “Kenyan born Obama” text. Shown is a booklet from Acton and Dystel, Literary Agents. (They have since changed their name to Dystel and Goderich.) The former A&D produced these “promotional booklets” to send to editors and publishers. That is one of many ways that literary agents get contracts for their clients.

A&D used this booklet to “shop” Barack Obama to publishers in 1991. Here is how they described him:

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.  The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation.   He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.

(Note: Obama never published Journeys in Black and White, according to Breitbart.)

Obama’s apologists insisted that someone at A&D “made a fact-checking error.” But Breitbart’s writers asked the questions no one else bothered to ask:

  1. Why did A&D/D&G use this Kenyan born Obama narrative as recently as 2007? The Wayback Machine does not lie about things like this.
  2. Why did they use the Kenyan born Obama narrative repeatedly?

Here is the blurb on Barack Obama that appeared in the D&G client list in 2007:

BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.

Then they answered their own question. Barack Obama wrote his own biography. Why? Because Acton and Dystel asked all their clients to do this. D&G ask this of their clients today; it’s in their guidelines. And those are standard writers’ guidelines that any literary agent sets for his clients.

Kenyan born Obama runs for Senate – by AP

Barack Obama: Kenyan born Obama or American born? He has said both!

Nor was A&D/D&G the only entity to describe the Kenyan born Obama. No less than the Associated Press published this article in 2004, when he ran for Senate against Jack Ryan. Note the headline:

Kenyan born Obama all set for US Senate.

The article opened with this:

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.

The article leads with a head shot of Obama. But the body of it talks about former Senator Jack Ryan (R-IL), his action-adventure actress wife Jeri, and their bitter divorce. That might explain why everyone forgot this article, and its lead paragraph.

This Wayback Machine entry has been available for nearly three years now. The first to notice it was Alex Jones, at InfoWars.com. InfoWars concluded then what Breitbart says now: Barack Obama touted himself as Kenyan born when he ran for the United States Senate.

What this means

The Constitution lets a foreign-born person run for the Senate (or the House of Representatives), so long as he has been a citizen and a resident of the United States for a long enough number of years. But someone running for President must be a natural born citizen. That means, at least, someone born in the United States. (It also means someone born to two parents both of whom are citizens at the time of his birth.)

So: in 2008, Kenyan born Obama became American born Obama. So, either before or after 2008, he lied about his birthplace.

And, amazingly, the then Speaker of the House of Representatives (Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco) did one of two things, neither of which reflect credit upon herself or the House. She either:

  • Glossed over a lie that Barack Obama told and repeated for eighteen years, or:
  • Backed him up in a lie that he began to tell in 2008.

So any document or certification that came from Nancy Pelosi’s office in 2008 is valueless.

Furthermore, the birth certificate becomes even more important. And nothing that comes out of the White House can have any probative value, either. The reason: Barack Hussein Obama is an unreliable witness. Any witness who lies about a material point, is suspect in anything else he says.

If Obama had not started the “Kenyan born Obama” narrative himself, no one would question his American born Obama narrative today.

    This conspiracy is massive!!!

    Terry, can you theorize about how Obama’s thugs got to Miriam Goderich, coercing her to not only admit authorship of the bio, but to lie and say there “was never any information given to [Acton & Dystel] by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii.”

  3. Terry! Excellent short commentary! As you stated, Obama has no one to blame but himself, for all of the latest news about his Kenyan background.

    Yet, even as late as this morning MSNBC’s Chuck Dodd berated someone for being a “Conspiracy [birther] theorist.” It seems obvious, that the mainstream boot clicking Obama kiss-up media is still sticking to their birther bashing [old] ways, and not focusing at where the current news, is, really, at!

    The significant news is Obama’s identity (crisis) status. And, that status has been the house of cards which has recently fallen with the news divulged over Obama’s 2 books, – one, which was not published, and the other which was – the “Dreams” book. Two decades of repeating the Kenyan narrative, by the literary agent, of Obama’s Kenyan background / roots, have Obama’s Kool-Aid drinkers intent upon telling more lies [like their leader] to cover up what has been plain and obvious. That plain and obvious, simply is this – Obama has been a snake charming salesman, now caught in the web of his own lies:

    Thanks – again, Terry for this excellent CNAV’S commentary. I plan on adding it to the link I just posted.

    Oh – by the way – Could CNAV’S post a separate link of all the links on the Obama identity scandal? I would certainly post that on my moralmatter’s site. And, people would have a ready finger-tip reference. Thank you!
