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.
Obama’s biography in the booklet is as follows (image and text below):
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.
The booklet, which is thirty-six pages long, is printed in blue ink (and, on the cover, silver/grey ink), using offset lithography. It purports to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Acton & Dystel, which was founded in 1976.
...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.
The biography does, however, fit a pattern in which Obama--or the people representing and supporting him--manipulate his public persona.
David Maraniss's forthcoming biography of Obama has reportedly confirmed, for example, that a girlfriend Obama described in Dreams from My Father was, in fact, an amalgam of several separate individuals.
In addition, Obama and his handlers have a history of redefining his identity when expedient. In March 2008, for example, he famously declared: "I can no more disown [Jeremiah Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother."
Several weeks later, Obama left Wright's church--and, according to Edward Klein's new biography, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, allegedly attempted to persuade Wright not to "do any more public speaking until after the November  election" (51).
Obama has been known frequently to fictionalize aspects of his own life. During his 2008 campaign, for instance, Obama claimed that his dying mother had fought with insurance companies over coverage for her cancer treatments.
That turned out to be untrue, but Obama has repeated the story--which even the Washington Post called "misleading"--in a campaign video for the 2012 election.
A separate Breitbart piece shows that, via the Internet Wayback Machine, the website of Obama's literary agent claimed he was "born in Kenya up until April 2007, around the time he announced his candidacy for President.
Let me repeat again, this document does not prove Obama was born in Kenya, but is more proof of how the mainstream lapdog media has covered for, and still covers for, this empty suit whom they sold the American people like a sleazy used car salesman sells a lemon to a not so careful buyer. I've always felt there was a Nixonian quality to Obama (hence, why I refer to him as "Richard Milhous Obama") the only difference being the media would aid Obama in the cover up.
This is why the old media is dying. Instead of serious vetting of any presidential candidate, several "journalists" (and I use that term loosely) were too busy getting "thrills up their legs" or photographing Obama with a halo background, portraying him as some modern-day Messiah. No questions about his ties with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, no questions about why he attended a racist, anti-American, anti-Semitic "church" for 20 years. But the same media had no problem turning rocks over in Texas, digging up bullying stories from 50 years ago, or investigating private citizens (aka Joe the Plumber) who dared to ask their false Messiah tough questions that exposed him for the socialist he is.
This also shows the deception which Obama has engaged in with the American people (aided and abetted by the media). Who told his agent he was "born in Kenya?" If it was a mistake, why was it uncorrected until the time he ran for President? Is this why his college records are sealed, because they might show (as some suspected) he went to college on student loans as a foreign student?
Richard Milhous Obama, it is long time for you to come clean with the American people. For a President who claimed he'd be the "most transparent evah!!!" you sure keep a lot of things sealed up.
Oh, and lapdog media (LA Slimes with the Rashid Khalidi tape, Washington ComPost, NY Slimes, ABC, See BS and especially NBC), it's time you were all held accountable for foisting this fraud on America, acting like he was some Heaven-sent Chicago Jesus. You either start acting like journalists, or keep the lapdog coverage up at your own peril!
