Crazy ‘Birthers’ or Alinsky Victims?

Is this why Obama is suing Sheriff Apio?

 

The Vetting – Exclusive – Obama’s Literary Agent in 1991 Booklet: ‘Born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii’

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.

 

Before you ‘poo-poo’ this story or the ‘birthers’ in general, let’s remember where we learned of this story in the first place – the CLINTONS!

  1. of course even Breitbarts site covers their *** and distances themselves from this

    “The errant Obama biography in the Acton & Dystel booklet does not contradict the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate. Moreover, several contemporaneous accounts of Obama’s background describe Obama as having been born in Hawaii.”

    They are shamelessly stirring the pot while “taking the high road” and admitting this is meaningless…

    • 1st, What birth certificate? Those who claim it to be legit do so without ever having seen the actual form.

      Which then opens them up to the same accusation of trying to hold the high ground while arguing from ignorance.

      I’ve already said I do not really care about the BC issue (except as an example of how irrational we’ve become as a society), but I do believe that those who accept Obama’s legitimacy out of hand do so more from ‘group think’ than from reason.

  2. I want to ask some questions. What happens if we do find out Obama is not really an American and was born in Kenya? Does he go to prison, do all of his people as well? Is he charged with treason and……………? Does it bring about the end of the Democratic Party? What happens if the truth comes out and it is not good? I’m just asking, what happens?

    • Constitutionally? Boehner becomes President because Obama’s election would have to be voided. Biden could not take over because he would not have been legally elected, either – since he would have been on an illegal ticket.

      Practically? NOTHING! No one in this nation has what it takes to hold to the rule of law anymore.

      As for the rest of your questions, I suppose it would depend on who backed Obama and what all fell out of the trees when we started to shake them, but yes, I believe a LOT of people could find their way to prison – IF we follow the law.

  3. black3actual: the only mechanism for removal of a president is not giving him a second term in votes or impeachment. So no court gets to rule on this (other than the Senate impeachment trial). Which is not going to happen.

    I still doubt the born in Kenya thing. It does not make sense. But I am sure Obama has touted stuff like that in the past, because he lies for his own benefit. We sort of suspect he made statements of foreign status on college applications.

    I do not know why this literary agent wrote what he did. It may be an error. It may be false information from Obama. Heck, it is possible it is true. But it is sure entertaining.

    • I disagree. If the allegations are true and he is not eligible, he is NOT President. It is a long established rule of law that you do not get to benefit from breaking it.

      Being born in Kenya makes a LOT of sense, and there is a great deal more evidence to suggest there is something wrong here than people will allow. HOWEVER, I – personally – happen to think the smoking gun is in his enrollment in the Indonesian school. As I understand it, that would have required he renounce his U.S. citizenship, which means – at best – he is now a naturalized citizen. That would mean he is still ineligible and is not President (IF that is the case).

      As for the story, why would we doubt something this old? I mean, if the birth certificates (all of them that look so fake) are ‘real,’ then why not give this story the same credibility? (playing devil’s advocate as the reasoning is on the level of the idiots now running the asylum).

      • I understand your position, but the Constitution only has one way to get a president out of office early for misconduct. So until you convince Congress to start impeachment proceedings and then convict him, it is not going to happen. No court will act on it and frankly no court has jurisdiction over this issue.

        • See, that is where America has lost its mind. If he is not legally eligible to be President, he does NOT get to stay in office until his term ends – he is removed because he cannot be President. The Constitution does not provide for any way to remove a LEGAL President other than impeachment, but – in the case at hand – he would NOT be President, therefore, the Constitutional process of impeachment would not apply.

          You do not get to keep something you stole until you decide to give it back. Allowing him the protections of the Constitution would be insult to injury. Or do you think the Constitution should make all ILLEGAL aliens FULL CITIZENS – just until we try them and convict them, anyway?

          It would be the same thing here. IF he were not a natural born citizen, he could NOT claim Constitutional protection as he would NOT be entitled to it because he would NOT be President.

          Finally, I should think either the Court or Congress (I hazard to say the founders would tell us BOTH) have jurisdiction over forcing Obama to present his credentials to PROVE he is qualified to hold office. They just don’t have the will to do so (and I suspect it is NOT because they are cowards, but because they already know the truth and do not care either way because they are all on the same team).

  4. And to answer EBL’s question, yes a President can be prosecuted for any crimes. If not for the pardon before the fact by President Gerald Ford, Nixon could have faced a trial, conviction and possible prison time for his part in the Watergate scandal.

      • But our country would not honor the renouncement, and no, a parent cannot renounce their child’s American citizenship; it is there when he reaches the age of maturity, if he wants it.

        • As I understand it (i.e. according to the lawyers I’ve heard discussing this issue), this was NOT the case AT THAT TIME! At the time, Obama’s father would have been the directing authority in Obama’s life. As a foreign national, Obama COULD have had his citizenship renounced by his father. In fact, due to some intricacies in the U.S. code AT THAT TIME, I have heard several lawyers argue that Obama could NOT have had U.S. citizenship even if he had been born in Hawaii. (I admit, this confuses me as it seems counter to what I always believed, but then, I’m not nearly so naive as to believe the law doesn’t lend itself to absurdity).

          So here’s the point I keep trying to make that everyone either misses or ignores: we are NOT dealing with real ‘facts’ here. First, we do not have the Birth Certificate. Second, we are not dealing with the laws OF THAT TIME! Nor are we actually dealing honestly with everything that has been presented to suggest there MAY be a problem here. We simply dismiss it.

          To me (and you know how I work), this is irrational. YES! He ‘may’ be U.S. borne. But the possibility that there is a problem here DOES exist and, at some point, you need to wonder whether or not he refuses to clarify this issue because he wants to keep feeding the birther craze or because there might just be something to it. Even more, why is it the U.S. govt. has not forced this issue to be resolved? If we are to run by rule of law, I should think a document as crucial as your BC should be made available for public scrutiny – so the people can verify your eligibility.

          But then, to heck with me for ‘trying’ to apply reason to politics.
