Obama blockbuster: 1991 promotional booklet

“Born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii” 

Breitbart News — which inserts an important Note from Senior Management accompanying this post — has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which pitches Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”  This description was never disputed by Barack Obama at the time.

The 36-page 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:

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.

    OBOZO’s biography also features a brief mention of his anticipated first book, “Journeys in Black and White,” which “he” never completed….
    …so, American terrorist Bill Ayers must have decided to work on something else rather than write that particular book for pal OBOZO.

      But of course….
      They have to cover all of their asses, his and theirs. This sure didn’t take long, did it?

      “This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me–an agency assistant at the time,” Miriam Goderich wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News. “There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”

      Miriam Goderich edited the text of the bio. She’s now a partner at the Dystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its current clients. Without a doubt they want to keep the President of The USA as a client!!

      So let’s get this straight….out of the clear blue, she just happened to dream up a Kenyan birthplace for Obama? Why not New York or Rome? This people are so transparent it would be funny if not so serious.

    I listened to Hannity on the radio today because he had the two guys from Breitbart.com, who had uncovered this information. The Breitbart guys said that the person who shared the contents of the booklet with them was Very Afraid of his/her identity getting out.

    Regardless of how they attempt to diffuse this bombshell, this is a splendid vindication for Sheriff Joe Arpaio!!
