Born in Kenya? Obama's Own 1991 Bio Says Just That


A Column by the Editor
web posted May 18, 2012

COLUMN – When President Barack Obama was named as the "first African-American President of the Harvard Law Review" his biography published at the time says Obama was, "born in Kenya". While the main stream media dismissed those challenging Obama's birthright as "Birthers", claiming the TEA Party was racist, the un-vetted Obama cruised into the Oval Office in 2008. All records of his past were sealed, including the Harvard Law Review, and the internet was "scrubbed" of all mentions of him.

However, the publicist that represented Obama continued to use the pamphlet of his Kenyan birth place in their material until he announced he was running for president is raising eyebrows. Why would Obama allow his publicist to use his claim of a Kenyan birth place in printed material for 17 years without correcting the "mistake"?

Breibart.com broke the story Thursday afternoon, and it has at this writing, been ignored by every major media outlet who failed in vetting Obama in 2007. Though the internet was "scrubbed" of all mentions of Obama's past, websites who cache websites on a daily basis were untouchable to the government cleansing of available information.

The London Telegraph questions how the "media" missed the information during the campaign. Tim Stanley writes, "The documents were easy to find – the one that showed that “born in Kenya” was still being used in 2007 was on the Internet."
       
The media will no doubt circle the wagons around Obama, their "sort of god", and dismiss the growing evidence that Obama's refusal to release his college records, a verifiable hard copy of his birth certificate from Hawaii, and his student loan applications seems to lean more towards those "crazies" who continue to challenge his right to be able to run for president.

As Stanley writes, it seems unlikely that Obama would not have vetted his own bio used to promote him throughout his career, including politics, to correct any "mistakes".

Be assured, even if Breibart was to publish a picture of Obama's supposed birth in Kenya, Republican nominee Mitt Romney will avoid it like the plague in fear of the backlash from the fourth arm of the Democrat Party - the main stream media - calling him a "birther".

As President Obama has said, the only people who have anything to hide are those who refuse to make their information available.

Well, Mr. President, it is time to make all your records available. That is, unless you have something to "hide".
