For 16 Years Obama’s Agent Claims He Was Born In Kenya
May 18, 2012 4 Comments
Breitbart has discovered a 1991 literary agency bio of Barack Obama which claims he was born in Kenya. Obama’s agent claims to have “misidentified” Obama’s birthplace. Yet that same agency was using the same bio until 2007. It simply makes no sense that such a mistake would happen and continue for 16 years without anyone, especially Obama, catching on. Where would Obama’s agent in 1991 get information that he was born in Kenya? Surely they weren’t getting it from the legion of birthers making wild claims about a future president no one had ever heard of at the time. They of course got the information from Obama himself.
Breitbart’s take on this isn’t that the birther people are correct, rather their take is that Obama changes himself and his history to suit his purposes. You’ll recall in 2008 he told a group in Alabama that he was conceived after the Selma march. That he was 4 years old when the march took place wasn’t important, he was trying to convince Democrats to support his nomination. Trying to make a grand racial point in Dreams From My Father, Obama recalls a fight over race with his white girlfriend. The girlfriend says the fight never happened and Obama has since admitted the fight was ”composite” of his former girlfriends. Composite might as well mean lie because the fight never happened. Again, he changes his history to suit his purposes. Obama changed his past in the 2008 debates when he claimed he didn’t launch his state senate campaign in the home of terrorist Bill Ayers. That was untrue but it suited Obama’s purposes at the moment.
What makes this booklet all the more interesting is that two groups of people apparently didn’t find it. Hillary Clinton and the media. Keep in mind, it was Hillary who started the birther craze. Her people looked into Obama’s background and they’re the ones who raised the first questions about it. How could they miss this booklet, which was in print for 16 years? Perhaps Hillary didn’t have enough money to spend on in depth research about Obama though one wonders why her surrogates didn’t spend the money.
The big group that completely missed the boat on this is the mainstream media. It has become abundantly clear that the mainstream press never vetted Obama. In 2008 the media portrayed Obama according to the narrative written by the Obama campaign. They never looked into his past, they never dug around. The best the media did was focus on Rev. Jeremiah Wright but even in that they blindly accepted Obama’s assertion that he must have missed Wright’s controversial sermons. They never looked into his childhood, they never asked why he was sent off to be mentored by communist Marshall Davis. The media surely never asked what effect Davis has had on Obama’s political outlook.
The media never wondered about his family life in Indonesia. We now know he had a transvestite nanny while living there. The media never dug around Obama’s school life, they’ve never wondered how he was able to transfer from Occidental College to Columbia. In 2008 we never heard anything of his former girlfriends, information about them is only trickling out now. The media is completely uninterested in Obama’s cocaine use, which he admitted to in his book. We know next to nothing about his time as a “community organizer” in Chicago. Surely there is information out there about this time but the media hasn’t looked into it at all.
It’s interesting that we know almost nothing about Obama’s past and what we do know has largely come out during his time as President. The media never vetted him, they never dug around. But we do know Mitt Romney might have taken a prank too far nearly 50 years ago. We know all about Romney’s business dealings, the media consistently reports on them. We know George W. Bush’s college grades because the media got them and published them. The media spent an inordinate amount of time trying to dig up information about Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign and she was only running for Vice President. It’s a safe bet that the media didn’t spend half the time digging up information about Obama as they did Palin during 2008.
This is an excellent case of media bias. They spend time digging up dirt on Republican candidates while ignoring the past of Democrat candidates. In 2008 Americans voted for Obama without really knowing who he was. Had the media dug around a little bit and found this pamphlet wherein Obama’s own agent says he was born in Kenya, would he have even been elected? If they really dug around his past and really reported about Marshall Davis mentoring Obama, would he have been elected? There’s all sorts of information out there about Obama now, largely coming from conservative media outlets. But it’s too late now, he’s already President. The media didn’t do their job in 2008. Or in the alternative they did do their job, they didn’t tell the American people the truth about Obama.
