Breitbart.com has introduced some explosive evidence showing that Obama claimed he was born in Kenya years before he became a presidential candidate. Interestingly, the editors of Breitbart still think that now Obama is telling the truth.
Over and over our critics have demanded we provide proof that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. We have demanded in response that Obama provide proof he was born in the United States.
Now thanks to Breitbart News we have proof that Obama himself claimed he was born in Kenya, at least to his literary agent.
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.
Here is a picture of the full page of text, which must have been approved by the young author.
This story is an important additional piece to the puzzle of trying to figure out who is “Barack Hussein Obama.” The Breitbart organization should be congratulated for this important exclusive. But I must admit that the senior management went out of their way to discredit the story they were publishing with this bizarre preface:
Note from Senior Management:
Andrew Breitbart was never a “Birther,” and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of “Birtherism.” In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.
Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama’s ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.
It is for that reason that we launched “The Vetting,” an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)–not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.
It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below–one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review.
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.
So we are supposed to believe that Barack Obama went around telling people he was born in Kenya years ago, but he was lying then? And after the mountain of proof that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has assembled that the Hawaiian Birth Certificate is a forgery?
I am scratching my head now. The left would never release evidence which implicates a President of The United States in a criminal conspiracy to hide the location of his birth, and then say never mind we don’t believe our evidence anyway. The left, in contrast, would be calling for the President’s resignation.
