    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.

    It also promotes Obama's anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White--which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.

    It doesn't crack me up. There is nothing funny about an illegally elected president destroying my country.

    Be that as it may...if Obama came out right now and admitted he was born in Kenya, absolutely nothing would be done about it.

    It's a potato too hot to handle. No one has the guts.

    What cracks me up is that everyone has to know, that he signed off on his own biography. Maybe, like Michelle, this was before he became proud to be an American...assuming he is now...and I have my doubts.

    So he just lied. The question is when is he lying, then or now?

    They can't do anything now. Let's say they deem the last election invalid. Where does that leave us? Biden in charge until we can have a special election? Boehner in charge? Months of fighting over what to do? At best, he would be ineligible for this election and the Dem's have to find a new candidate.


    Obama is an opportunist. I maintain that he is always lying.

    I have to admit this news made me waver in my anti-birther opinion, but I strongly suspect that it was a PR move to make him more appealing to the liberal reader.

    It will cause me to watch for updates though.

    They could. They could impeach him. They could jail him, or deport him. I am not all that concerned about that. I am more concerned about what it would mean for the country.

    Postman: Ayers family put 'foreigner' Obama through school
    Claims he met young Barack who boasted he'd someday be president

    "CHICAGO – Did the parents of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers help finance Barack Obama’s Harvard education?

    Did Ayers’ mother believe Obama was a foreign student?

    And was the young Obama convinced at the time – long before he even entered politics – that he was going to become president of the United States?

    A retired U.S. Postal Service carrier who delivered mail to Tom and Mary Ayers in a Chicago suburb in the late 1980s and early 1990s and claims to have met Obama in front of the Ayers home emphatically says yes to all three questions....."


    (this is the sort of 'juicy stuff' you all like, right? I'll be right back, I'm going to find some more)

    This is one thing I have wondered about and maybe you could answer it, a technical question. If it were proven beyond a doubt that Obama was born outside the United States, how would he be removed, by impeachment, or just automatically and Biden become President (better think really carefully about what you wish). I would guess at this late date he would just not run for reelection.

    It is like if I falsified a past criminal or education record before I get a job or clearance of some type, I am fired, or in some cases jailed. I have got a feeling if I had pulled that in the service for a background check for certain types of jobs, I would have been put under the jail, or in this case, Leavenworth.

    If you could answer that for me I would appreciate it.

    My sentiments exactly. My first reaction was, WHOA, but then I figured the biography PR was tailored for the audience.

    Very interesting article, to say the least.

    If the book is legit, what can be done? He's already served his term in the White House. Who knows what he has learned in the White House Library that could be detrimental to America's safety?

    I believe many people on Capitol Hill know, but will not act out of FEAR. For reasons pointed out in this thread:

    The big question, is this legit or does it compare to the Dan Rather documents? That is how it will be played from the left media. You will not see anything with journalistic honesty from them. I'm sure Hannity will run with it, not O'Reilly though. That is probably where it will end. even if true it will be laughed out of sight as a fake document.

    If it were true I would espect as in the Military when someone fruadulently enlists, they will be kicked out and labeld a fraud.

    Awesome. A secret meeting that somehow this author is privy to know about. Not only that but the author knows why Scalia wasn't at the secret meeting.

    Ironically, only Justice Scalia, the longest serving conservatively oriented judge, appointed by Republican President, Ronald Reagan, in 1986, was absent from this secret meeting. Scalia has often been hailed as the "conservative intellectual anchor" of the supreme court. If any one of the nine supreme court justices would have held opposition to Obama's illegal presidency, Scalia would be the first. He was either not allowed in the meeting, or recused himself for reasons of deniability about the subject.
    ---------------

    This is typical conspiracy theory stuff. First you beg the question--Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen--as if it were a fact. Then you invoke Ronald Reagan's legacy as the only defense against the shenanigans. Next the details of a top secret meeting is revealed. Then an author will write a book based on the agenda at the secret meeting. Then another author will write another paper and reference the first author's story about the secret meeting. Pretty soon you have a dozen 'sources' all using the so-called secret meeting story to peddle their books and e-zine articles. No one can question the authenticity of a secret meeting, and so it goes...

    I just saw the same comment om Brietbart wesbsite, did you copy it or was it you?

    Which defense will the left come out with:

    It's a typo?

    It's a fake by the vast Right Wing Conspiracy?

    From ABC NEWS 20 minutes ago:

    ‘Born in Kenya': Obama's literary agent misidentified his birthplace in 1991

    "A possible source of the so-called "birther" issue--or at least a potential cause of the rumors that have dogged President Barack Obama--has been identified.

    Obama's former literary agency misidentified his birthplace as Kenya while trying to promote the then-Harvard Law grad as an author in 1991.

    According to a promotional booklet produced by the agency, Acton & Dystel, to showcase its roster of writers, Obama was "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."

    Miriam Goderich edited the text of the bio; she is now a partner at the Dystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its current clients.

    "This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me--an agency assistant at the time," Goderich wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News. "There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."....."

    There you go, I wonder how much Miriam was paid to say that?

    So, if it was a mistake by the publishers, why did they choose to say he was born in Kenya? Why not Nairobi? or or Johannesburg?

    They just up and came up with Kenya out of the air?

    I found the last paragraph of the ABC site interesting:

    In a follow-up post, Breitbart.com noted that Obama was listed as being born in Kenya on the Dyster & Goderich website until April 2007, "just two months after then-Senator Obama declared his campaign for the presidency."

    Still looks suspicious
