Breitbart News: Obama’s Literary Agent In 1991 Booklet Says Obama Was ‘Born In Kenya And Raised In Indonesia And Hawaii’

And Kenya was, according to his literary agents, the official birthplace of Barack Obama until it was conveniently changed in 2007. Now I’d really love to see all of those Occidental College Transcripts. Was this man officially born outside of the United States until he decided to run for President? …

By Joel B. Pollak – “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.

Jay Acton no longer represents Obama. However, Jane Dystel still lists Obama as a client on her agency’s website.

According to the booklet itself, the text was edited by Miriam Goderich, who has since become Dystel’s partner at Dystel & Goderich, an agency founded in 1994. Breitbart News attempted to reach Goderich by telephone several times over several days. Her calls are screened by an automated service that requires callers to state their name and company, which we did. She never answered.

The design of the booklet was undertaken by Richard Bellsey, who has since closed his business. Bellsey, reached by telephone, could not recall the exact details of the booklet, but told Breitbart News that it ‘sounds like one of our jobs, like I did for [Acton & Dystel] twenty years ago or more.'” Read more.

Arizona official to Hawaii: Show birth verification – “A state official in Arizona has asked Hawaii for verification of the information on Barack Obama’s birth certificate, the document that Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s special investigative team has concluded may be a forgery. Members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, who petitioned Arpaio to investigate Obama’s eligibility, say they are awaiting word from the state secretary of state regarding whether Obama’s name will be on the 2012 presidential ballot in Arizona. Secretary of State Ken Bennett had promised to ask Hawaii officials for verification of Obama’s documentation, vowing that if answers are not forthcoming, Obama’s name will not be on the ballot.” Read more.

    Maybe this is the smoking howitzer that will finally leave a mark…

    One can only hope. The mainstream mulish media will almost certainly refer to even this smoking howitzer as little more than Whacky Tobacky.

    Associated Press Declared Obama “Kenyan-Born” (2004): “… Keyes faulted Obama for not being a ‘natural born citizen’, and in which Obama, by his quick retort, ‘So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency’, self-admitted that he was not eligible for the office. Seeing that an AP reporter is too professional to submit a story which was not based on confirmed sources (ostensibly the Obama campaign in this case), the inference seems inescapable: Obama himself was putting out in 2004, that he was born in Kenya.” Read more.

    This is getting ridiculous. What is going on with truth? You would think that the FBI or someone would be all over this.

    I just reported him (Obama) to the FBI. Something should be happening soon.
