By The Right Scoop


Steve Bowman, a client of Acton & Dystel, writes at Breitbart.com that in his dealings with Jane Dystel, she required him to write his own bio:

Now let me say right up front: when it comes to Obama, I’m not going to speculate who wrote what, when. Dystel had assistants, one of whom is now her partner, Miriam Goderich, who says the whole Obama-born-in-Kenya thing was a fact-checking mistake by her. And I cannot speak specifically to the mechanism of Dystel’s publicity. (Alas, Dystel was unable to sell anything I wrote, so she had no reason to promote me, but I’m getting ahead of myself.)

I can speak of what she was like to work with and how she generated material. In my dealings with Dystel, I found her exceptionally thorough and very professional. She had a template she wanted non-fiction writers to follow, and my writing partner and I followed her template closely. She was rather fastidious, going so far as to mail a personal “Season’s Greetings” card in December.

All material she used in our proposals came directly from me and my writing partner. She edited our rough-draft proposals and gave us feedback, but the final versions were all ours. Our final versions, bio included, were then simply photo-copied, by us, and distributed to potential publishers. This was back in the pre-Google days, recall. 

I was asked to write the bio in the third person.

He writes that this is directly from their website:

Submission guidelines at the Dystel & Goderich website (original emphasis): “[Y]ou should describe in two or three sentences—no more—what the book will be about. This is followed by another brief paragraph on why it is being written and then another on why you are qualified to write it….Finally, there should be a more formal narrative Bio of the author.”

There’s more to Bowman’s column and you can click on over to Breitbart.com to read it.

But this is also interesting. Breitbart also published this yesterday:

In addition to the 1991 biography above (#1), here, via archive.org, is a screen shot of Obama’s biography (#2) on the Dystel.com website in June 1998, in which the text has been updated but the birthplace error has been repeated:

Here, again via archive.org, is a screen shot of Obama’s updated biography on the Dystel & Goderich website in February 2005 (#3), updated to reflect the fact that Obama had become a U.S. Senator–but not corrected as regards his birthplace:

And here, once again via archive.org, is a screen shot of Obama’s biography on the updated Dystel & Goderich website in April 2007 (#4), revealing that the text had been modified slightly–but the birthplace had not:

Breitbart News attempted to contact Goderich and senior partner Jane Dystel several times over several days prior to publishing our original story. They chose not to respond.

The real mystery is not where Obama was born–which has long been settled–but why Goddard failed to ask her agent a single relevant follow-up question about how the ‘fact checking error’ occurred in the first place.

Did you notice how it kept changing yet the “born in Keyna” still remained? Whether or not you agree with Breitbart’s supposition as to what this really means is up to you. But it does undoubtedly bring up questions that deserve answers.

    Wonder how much Goderich was paid to fall on her sword.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Florey/100002838321254 Mike Florey

      I think it was more ‘stick’ than ‘carrot’. As in “How much punishment did she avoid by falling on her pen?”

  • 911Infidel

    The question of where Obama was born has not been settled. The MSM meme doesn’t cut it anymore. There is more than enough stories and we even have Michelle Obama admiting on a youtube vid in 2007 or 8 that her husband was born in Kenya.

    In the not-to-distant future all this crap that is being thrown at so-called “birthers” is going to come full circle. I just hope that the skeptics have plenty of catsup to go with their “crow”.

    • wodiej

      The truth will prevail-it always does.

      • 911Infidel

        The truth has been out on Obama since before the last election. Trouble is the media keeps ignoring it. Party before country is theme of the media The Obama scam. The right isn’t saying much either; cause they’re afraid of being labeled as one of those crazy birthers.

        I’m sitting back laughing my arse off at both sides squirming while they dismiss yet more evidence that the so-called birthers are on time and on target about Obama.

        Yeah and some of them have their noses stuck so high up in the clouds that when their crow is served to them they won’t be asking for more catsup. No. They’ll be asking “would you have any Grey Poupon”? LOL

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1484306407 Bonnie Gregerson Knight

          They may be asking for someone to perform the Hiemlich (sp?) maneuver to get all that crow out of their throats after they choked on it with their nosesso high up in the clouds. Hard to swallow in that position.

          • 911Infidel

            Oh yeah, the spin will be fun to watch.

    • las1

      Here’s that video…

      Not terribly conclusive however, yet I would say it’s a slip by Michelle who refers to Barack’s “home country in Kenya”.

      Oh yes… and note how she says Aids is “plaguing our communities and a lot of that is due to “homophobia”.

      The contamination of the liberal mind is a glorious thing to behold, or a frightful thing to endure. Take your pick.

      • conservative58

        Right from the horses mouth!!

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Florey/100002838321254 Mike Florey

          Sorry, Con58. Wrong end of the horse.

      • 911Infidel

        I would think that a wife would know definitively where her husband was born. Michelle may look like a wookie. but she ain’t so stupid as to not know where Baracky was born.

      • FutureOnePercent

        Only a liberal would actually believe that someone can get an STD from the fear of homosexuality, instead of the act itself.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1236140974 Kimberly Petrich

          Indeed, it seems that homophobia would be quite successful in preventing AIDS from “plaguing our communities”. While homosexual “tolerance” would be instrumental in allowing the spread of AIDS.

    • M_J_S

      When it does come out, he needs to be tried, stripped of taxpayer funded secret service, the pension and taken to court and have his assess stripped for all the illegal money he used since he wasn’t born in the USA and therefore is not entitled to the salary, privileges, etc.

      • 911Infidel

        Dern right. I like the way you think.

  • teri_b

    I hope Jake Tapper gets ahold of this story. He will stay with it like a bulldog.

    • Spartan4Palin

      I think Tapper will fall on his sword as well? This is too much for the media to admit that they were complicit to fraud. The reaction that would come from this is like trying to imagine how big the universe is. I have to go back to the book I read; How to Kill 11 Million People?

      http://www.christianbook.com/million-people-truth-matters-than-think/andy-andrews/9780849948350/pd/948350

      I used to think that there were just a few of us among my close friends when we discuss these issues. But there are more people around us joining in the conversations. And they aren’t ridiculing us anymore. The blinders are starting to fall away.

      Not only that, the Zimmerman case is spotlighting their complicity in that case, as well.

    • StrangernFiction

      Tapper is simply one of the best of a putrid lot. If he stays on this “like a bulldog” I’ll be shocked.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1236140974 Kimberly Petrich

      Meh. Just because Tapper is marginally better at reporting the news than the rest of the LSM, doesn’t mean he is good at it.

  • rjcylon

    What interests me is how they let this stuff come out bit by bit. It was just that booklet! Oh wait, there’s more.

    What else do they have?

    • Watchman74

      That was the plan all along. When they released the video of Obama giving a speech for his questionable professor Derrick Bell they said more stuff would be coming. I assume the game plan is to release it slowly saving the best for last. This time round Obama will be toughly vetted.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Florey/100002838321254 Mike Florey

        “Saving the best for last”
        Something like an “October surprise”? I hope the next piece of evidence leaves the libs jibbering about how our constitutional requirements for the presidency are outdated and old-fashioned.

          Yes let the big one drop right before the election so they don’t have time to spin it.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      That’s precisely the way it should be done. This way, it gives Showbama’s crew a chance to respond daily, and, with each new piece of information, it genuinely shows through whatever lie they’ve offered up that day.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1236140974 Kimberly Petrich

      That was always Breitbart’s way. Give them just enough to let them implicate themselves in the defense/dismissal of the issue, then drop the hammer. It works beautifully.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=775953507 Berend Lienemann

    I think the point that most miss in this is that 50% of Americans do not care where is he born. We are in a current state where people can vote for benefits at their neighbors detriment. Good ol Ben Franklin had a quote along the lines of the country being screwed when the people discover they can vote themselves money.

    • Boris_Badenoff

      “I think the point that most miss in this is that 50% of Americans do not care where is he born.”

      Fortunately we are a country of laws, hopefully we will stay that way. It’s a bit iffy right now.

      I know,
      Let’s get Benjamin Netanyahu over her and make him a citizen and run him for Potus.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=775953507 Berend Lienemann

        We “were” a country of laws. But when the President can selectively handpick which laws he wants to follow or not(DoM Act), have a SC justice decide on a bill that she helped write, have an AG that refuses to prosecute black on white crime, and I could list a hundred more violations of our liberties. I don’t see us as a nation who upholds the laws of this once great country.

        P.S. I do firmly believe that the blame rest squarely with our media

        • M_J_S

          Sure the media sucks, but the blame is with us.

            Yes and no…I think the media is THE WORST THING EVER! Sorry….I would make that bigger if I could. I truly am thoroughly disgusted with the LSM in this country…

    • ed herold

      BINGO !!!

  • ApplePie101

    I am now beginning to suspect that Obama was born in Kenya.

    • FutureOnePercent

      Even if he wasn’t the other option is that he’s a liar who will become whatever he needs to be to further his career.

      So he has two options on things like this:

      1) Admit you’re not eligible
      2) Admit that you’re a pathological liar.

      I’d prefer number 1, but 2 works for me as well.

      Any lib you talk to about this, make them choose which of these options they think it is. Don’t let them off the hook.

  • badbadlibs

    I wish this was a smoking gun, an early October surprise or just something enough people cared about to make the msm/bo administration to even blink an eye. Alas, it doesn’t and won’t mean anything. bo isn’t going to be ousted of the wh before Nov..
    He could be recored saying he did drugs like crazy…oh, wait he has…maybe if he was on film saying he’d have more flexability for the RUSSIANS…oh, wait…

  • westernhunter

    Too many people did not know the eligibility requirements to be President. With Alexrod and others scrubbing meaning and court cases of NBC from web there was too much chaos. If in fact he was born in Kenya, most people don’t dispute eligiblity.

    But does not matter where he was born if father was foreign citizen. He is not eligible.

  • PFFV

    I strongly disagree with the notion that Obama’s true birthplace has been settled. I believe he was born in Kenya and if he wasn’t he said he was. In short, any way you slice it Obama is a dirty liar. At least he is consistent…lol!

    • actionsspeaklouder

      He’s a filthy con artist.

  • TLaMana

    Breitbart and his company must be nothing but a bunch of loony Birthers!!!!

    • brendawatkins

      lol.. blame breitbart for Obama’s lies.

      • las1

        TLaMana was being sarcastic I believe. His other comments reflect that he’s in agreement with the Breitbart reporting.

        • brendawatkins

          Sarcasm is good, but, it’s hard to tell sometimes. From what I understand, Breitbart isn’t birthers, but, I am.

          • las1

            Brenda… I’m really interested to see Breitbart’s continued reporting on this. Breitbart himself was violently opposed to the birther arguments… and up till now Breitbart’s Editorl-at-large, Ben Shapiro, was as well. But now he has changed his tune. I would hope it’s all part of a grander scheme by Breitbart in the vetting process to expose all the lies and contradictions of the Democrats and their messiah… but we shall see. For what it’s worth… it looks like Breitbart is indeed becoming a “birther”.

            • brendawatkins

              I’d like to think that too.. but, I can’t, mainly because of this..
              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.

              They make it clear they still believe he was born in Hawaii.

              • las1

                Yeah… but it’s going to be tricky for Breitbart now because anyone even reporting anything construed as supporting a birther position will be targeted. Breitbart can claim anything they want… but according to how the liberal rules are played… you report a fact liberals don’t like… you will be targeted period.

                Like I said earlier… I suspect Breitbart is setting up for a grand vetting… softening the media with tidbits… putting the meme out there for liberals to pounce on in their fake outrage…once again. Then Breitbart will drop an incontrovertible evidence nuclear bomb and Obama will be exposed once and for all… and no one will be able to deny it any longer. Truth has a way of getting out. Obama’s covered up too many facts, lied too many times and committed too many criminal acts to keep fooling people. His only next act is something more sinister against the nation. Pray that does not happen.

                • Nukeman60

                  And don’t think that they are not examining very closely the Montreal protests and riots which have been going on for more than three months now. It’s a perfect model to follow. What started out as a stupid and asinine protest over student tuition (the lowest in North America btw) has morphed into a full blown OWS movement riding in on a rickety cartload of assorted Marxist and left wing baggery. For America the event… a contrived assassination attempt.

                • brendawatkins

                  I hope you’re right. I do pray for this country.. I just hope this country deserves God’s mercy.

    SRM: Nothing to see folks, move along.

    The plot thickens…

  • steprock

    If so, why the Hawaii cert.? It would follow that it is a fake.

    A real Kenyan birth certificate would have to surface and show his nationality not as his mother’s, but his father’s.

    And yes, gloomy Gusses, it really does matter since we are still a nation laws, will of the Dems be hanged.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      No, no, no. Actually, anyone resident of Hawaii who travels abroad can easily obtain a certificate of live birth by request if that citizen can prove that the live birth took place; usually, this is done by presenting a certified copy of a birth certificate from the country wherein the birth took place. I know that may READ confusing, so lemme give the example — say Showbama’s mom went to Kenya to be with her boyfriend/husband, and, while she was staying there, she gave birth. Hawaii allows her to then — upon return — prove birth with an official birth certificate from Kenya and, then, they can issue a certificate of live birth. It’s a weird thing, I know, but that’s exactly as it has been explained to me. If she’s a resident of Hawaii, all she has to do is request this be done IF she gives birth while she’s traveling abroad.

      This has long been what many birthers have contended — that Showbama’s mom was living abroad when she gave birth — and, thus, it becomes an issue of eligibility because the father (as it is believed) was no a U.S. citizen. There are other issues that the birthers have latched onto, but this is the overriding theory that most have discussed in forums I’ve visited. I know I’ve heard one audio recording of his Kenyan grandmother stating that Showbama was born in Kenya; of course, all of her kids had ‘thrown grandma under the bus’ by stating she’s old, so she doesn’t know anything.

      • steprock

        Well, I don’t have an issue with him being born abroad…many Americans are. That’s why we have jus sangri as well as jus soli laws, if I recall the names, for both place of birth and parentage. The issue is why all the lies about it?

        If you mother is an American and files for US citizenship for you, your birthplace won’t matter. So why claim Hawaii? It would matter if his father had him listed as Kenyan, and later his mom filed for US citizenship.

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          My understanding is that there have been attempts to locate his mother’s travel records, all to no avail. I couldn’t speak with any degree of expertise on the laws; I can only recite what I’ve either heard or been told in asking folks of a legal background.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1236140974 Kimberly Petrich

        Yes, yes, EXCEPT for the fact investigators can show that Stanley Ann Dunham shows up in the state of Washington just weeks after the baby’s birth along with many other details from the time frame of her pregnancy up until she hooked up with Lolo Soetoro, YET they have come up with nothing showing any movement of Stanely Ann to Kenya or anywhere else overseas for that matter. Wouldn’t they be able to uncover her travel to Kenya in the first place? This is a big hole in the “born in Kenya” story.

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          As best as I can recall, I believe there have been efforts to uncover her travel. Some of this I recall from a while back, but I thought that there were records showing her return to the United States but there were no records of her leaving. One theory I know I’ve read is that she traveled to Kenya, gave birth, and left the baby there to be raised. Again: do I know this? No. I’m only passing on items I’ve read, heard, etc. I believe that there has been some (weak) confirmation of her having Baby O with her in Washington (I say ‘weak’ b/c I thought I’d also heard it’s been contested).

          There are so many holes in most of these theories it’s no wonder that birthers have been christened with a bad name, but my head spins when I think about all of the falsehoods associated to the certificate of live birth that we’ve all been fed. Personally, I tend to think that there’s an awful lot of credence to the idea that Showbama “claims” to be of Kenyan descent in order to get ‘cred’ in political circles, and that’s what has been covered up. I know that Andrew Breitbart believed as much.

  • kong1967

    The defense of the so-called “error” doesn’t hold water. The Dystel & Goderich website clearly states that you must provide your own bio, so why would we have any reason to believe that it was anyone but Obama himself that approved of this bio…repeatedly?

    Grouped with all the other evidence suggesting the same thing…that he was born in Kenya…..the left’s defense of this is like saying BTK was innocent. BTK had personal items from all his victims in his shed. It doesn’t prove he did it, but explain to me how all those items got in his shed.

    Common sense has to prevail here. I don’t see how anyone in their right mind could believe that Obama was born in Hawaii.

    Hawaii is not responding to another state that is requesting documents to prove Obama was born there. Obama might be kicked off the ticket in that state as a result. Can’t remember which state is requesting the documents.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      I’m with you on this one. Any editor I’ve worked with either has me write my own bio (then they edit and have me proof their version) or the editor writes the bio based on my answers to questions (then I proof their version). In any case, Showbama would most likely have had to approve whatever it is the publisher was using; that’s just the way of the world.

        Well, I kinda don’t blame them. Look at the backlash that Donald Trump suffered because of it. They are afraid of getting labeled a birther and a wacko, losing credibility. However, we needed some backbone here in order for truth to prevail. We don’t have to prove it and get the politicians to recongnize it, though. If the American people believe it Obama will have backlash in November.

        I used to keep the $5 underneath the mattress. But, yesterday … they came and took the mattress…

        I’m not quite sure why. Something about how it wasn’t Union made…..

          Can I borrow that $5? :) Obama’s says I haven’t paid my fair share yet, apparently taking me down to $0 wasn’t good enough…..he mumbled something about Mooch needing more $$$$ for another cheeseburger raid on Manhatten (hey, AF-2 costs $170,000 per hour)

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Skip-Thompson/100000245516633 Skip Thompson

            No,

            I am sorry. This is my $5. Obama told me I get to keep it. (He is a really great guy.)

            We tried to tell you to be nicer to Obama. But, no. You wouldn’t listen. Now he took your $5 and you have no one else to blame but yourself.

            FYI, If I had a son who was a despot. He would look like “Obama” And, even more so: If I had a son who was an idiot. He would look like Joe Biden …

            • Nukeman60

              You know, according to Obama, if you loan that $5 to me, I could use it for debt reduction, then loan it to my neighbor (who could use it for debt reduction) and then he could loan it to… If you think about it, that $5 could eliminate the entire national debt. Isn’t Obama wonderful? I believe he will get the Nobel prize in economics for this and perhaps another 12 years in office. (Did I say 12? Oops, I didn’t mean to let that slip – that was the basis of the Nobel prize in politics, coming soon to an Obama near you).

        I understand the Breitbart position is if there was anything beyond Obama “puffing up” his reputation the Clinton’s would have found out and exposed him. That may not be correct. There are people or groups of people out there that have enough power to intimidate both Bill and Hillary. The Clinton’s are not known for overwhelming courage in the face of powerful opposition, and by the way-look where Hillary ended up!

  • wodiej

    It seems Obama’s birthplace is not settled. I think it’s been questioned because he has been so adamant in hiding everything in his background. Medical, school, work, passport, selective service records-all sealed. It seems they are all linked together by one piece of information. If he wasn’t born in Kenya, why did they claim he was and opt to put up a memorial in his honor of it?

    Of course it is possible he made it all up and is keeping his background secret because he’s the biggest narcissist that ever lived and just likes the attention.

    • Boris_Badenoff

      It does get a bit confusing, the ONLY consistent fact in the whole mess is Obama is a Liar. Now when he lied is an interesting question.
      He might have thought no biggie if I say I was born in Kenya for the Bio piece, makes him more exotic sounding probably hoping to sell more books, was that the lie then? or was that the truth and the lie is now?
      Did he lie on his Columbia /Harvard admissions application to gain a favored status for admittance?

      The FACT of the matter is he lied then or now. It’s the George Constaza parable, when two worlds collide..

      So who do we have? The Kenyan George or the Hawaiian George, they can’t both exist in the same space.. One will destroy the others world.. but they obviously do in the mind of Obama.. Do they talk to each other? I think so… on a regular basis..

        Look, the guy was abandoned by his father, uprooted to live overseas, sent to a madrassa, abandoned by his own mother, taken in by indifferent and distant grandparents, passed off onto some pedophilic Communist for a “father figure”, used and abused by so many. To be fair to Obama, how could he NOT have become confused about his own identity, a chameleon, a pathological liar and a narcissist. One could not come up for a better recipe for this disaster if one tried! He seems an empty vessel to be filled with whatever people need him to be to make them love/accept him, because HE IS one. It is really a sad story in human terms, an utter tragedy for our nation.

        • Boris_Badenoff

          To be fair to Obama? When has he ever shown fairness to anyone? Back in his Chicago days when he back stabbed Alice Palmer, one of his his political mentors, to take her political seat? When he called the woman who raised him a “typical white woman”? Obama does not practice fairness in any shape or form. He is all about what can I get for me..

          He has always been and still is a liar and a con and the MSM is every bit as guilty as Obama himself for perpetrating the false persona that they did.. He might have learned these traits the hard way , but he learned them no less.

          It is what he is. A Liar and a con.

    In reading Brietbart’s article on this I agree with them in the fact that there is NO way the Clintons would have let this slide in the 2008 primaries if he were not eligible to be POTUS.

    Perhaps he has daddy issues and wants to live up to what he thinks his father would have wanted him to do or what his father would have done in his place. Perhaps he wanted to connect more with his father in some fashion. I wonder what he told all the foreign students and marxists he hung out with in college. Perhaps he told them he was born in Kenya to fit in more and to make the “America hating” go easier. I don’t know. But it is odd. If he embelished a girl-friend in an auto-biography then what else did he embelish? Perhaps he thinks being born in Kenya to his mother and his foreign father has some romantic story to it. Because being born and left by your father immediately isn’t that romantic. Even if he is a foreigner. I mean the guy did write two auto-biographies before middle-age. Who does that?

    I wonder what answer would be given if he was asked by a member of the press corps. Not likely to happen but still.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

      I think there is evidence that the Clintons were “threatened” by Obama and his “operatives.”

      • Linky1

        “She (Bettina Viviano was a vice president with Amblin Enterntainment,) also heard former President Bill Clinton say that Obama was not eligible to be president because of his lack of birth records. In fact, she said it was common knowledge around many top Democrats. Bill Clinton has often said that he would go public with the information when the time was right.”

        Before that could happen, his close friend and head of the Arkansas Democratic Party, Bill Gwatney was murdered in his office and then someone told Bill that he was next if he said anything about Obama’s eligibility. In the video below, she said that Clinton was not intimidated until someone associated with the Obama campaign told him that his daughter Chelsea would be next if he opened his mouth. From that point on, the Clinton’s remained silent about Obama’s birth certificate or lack thereof.

    • Karl Rogue

      You are right that the Clintons had great incentive–the White House–to bring out the issue in 08. But what if the Clintons concluded that, in doing so, they’d (a) cost their party the election and (b) be shunned from the Democrat party forever? The Clintons could have decided out of self interest to let it slide.

      • Linky1

        The Clintons have enough skeletons in their closets that I am sure BHO and the thugs would have used if Hilary’s campaign advanced in ’08. Today’s it’s a case of which skeletons are worse – BHO’s or the Clintons. Hence, the Mexican standoff when it comes to Hilary challenging Obama.

    • wodiej

      I don’t know-the Clintons may have been threatened or bought off. They sure aren’t pillars of society.

      I do think Obama has a lot of issues, one of them being “daddy issues.” His first Dad ran off, whoever that was. Then his stepdad split, and he was shipped off to communist granny and pappy while his mom ran off to do God knows what. He did drugs and drank in high school (maybe college too). He finally found a place to fit in when he got mixed up w the likes of Wright, Ayers and other nutty people. He’s never faced his problems so he has carved a persona he likes and in his warped mind, believes it. Personally, I think he’s mentally unstable.

      • NCHokie02

        I do agree with daddy issues. However, his mother shipped him off from his stepdad and split with him (not the other way around) oddly enough because after he had gained some noteriety and looked at fixing his country he started to become more and more conservative in his (the stepdad) views on how things should work in Indonesia. BO’s mother was upset at how he had changed from a marxist revolutionary to government conservative and sent BO back to grandma and grandpa in Hawaii so his stepdad wouldn’t influence him anymore.

    It’s a very legitimate issue where Obama was born. If in Kenya, then he has to be removed and everything he’s done should be null and void.

  • Karl Rogue

    I don’t believe for a minute that it is settled or “proven” he was born in Hawaii. I do think it possible however that he would have one or more motives to lie about being Kenya-born. Among other things, it could help him sell books to a certain segment. He may also have misrepresented things to get financial aid, to get admitted to Hahvahd, etc.

  • LeonidasOfSparta1957

    If no one else will, Sheriff Joe will add this to his arsenal of information he is gathering on the foreign birth and the coverup. Very interesting.
    And if this bio is just more of the lies Obama spreads constantly, it is damning to him in a different way. With the revelation of the tapes of interviews of Rev Wright recently it is apparent that Obama doesn’t think lying publicly is wrong or an evil propensity or problematic for a POTUS– which leads back directly to slick Willie lying to the Grand Jury about having sex with Lewinsky and a President lying publicly, loudly, and with false bravado, to save or cover his “assets.”

    What’s with the continued, “The real mystery is not where Obama was born–which has long been settled” comments coming from conservatives? Has it been settled? Really? What is everybody so damn afraid of in asking this question? Even Breitbart thought that silly birth certificate posted on the internet was legit? Come on. This frustrates me to absolutely no end. It’s like we can dance all around the subject, but we can’t just ask where this guy was really born, because we all know… it’s been settled. I understand that it really doesn’t matter now, and let’s just get Obama out of the White House in November. But, I’m sick of the constant backing off of the subject by conservatives for fear of being labeled “birther”. Enough already.

      You said this so well. This isn’t the country I thought I lived in, that would allow this to happen and then let it continue, betraying an entire nation. It makes you feel you’ve been living a lie your entire life. I thought we were an advanced country where the rule of law would always prevail. I never thought every single agency in our government would sit on the sidelines, and let it go on.

      Do they think 9/11 was a bad dream? We have a man with the name Hussein after 9/11, that no one knows, who’s most likely a fraud, sitting in our Whiite House, and no one seems to think this requires immediate attention? All of those czars of his are a shadow government who’ve been working behind the scenes to destroy us. Don’t these people have children? What do they think is going to happen to them? I’ve never felt so betrayed in my life.

      There’s been so much damage done, and I know many of them are afraid of the fallout from this, but, how much more damage are they waiting for? We’ve already had twenty Navy Seals die, a CIA drone land in Iran, more troops die in Afghanistan than at any other time, under this false president, millions of jobs lost, lives destroyed, over 300 murders from the weapons they gave to the drug cartels. And let’s not forget those that were thrown out of the military for trying to honor their oath, like Dr. Terry Lakin, a wonderful doctor who’s life is destroyed. There was also a soldier recently who was discharged. They’ve been betrayed by the Quislings in the military. I spit on all of them.

      Just what do they want? Imagine being the family member of these people, knowing not one person would step in. And they want us to believe they’re honoring their oath to protect the country from all enemies, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC? Zero qualifies for both, I guess. We count on these people to make sure this never happens, and they let it happen.

      Was it that bad to check his credentials? Was it that hard? Was his half black race more important than these poor people who’ve died? These were someones children for God’s sake. I think about mine, and how I would feel.
