New report of Obama’s birth in Kenya

Headline on Drudge this afternoon: “Obama Lit Agent Shocker: ‘Born in Kenya and Raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.’ ” It links to a story in Breitbart showing a full photo of President Obama in a brochure by Acton & Dystel, said to be a literary agency, printed in 1991. Beneath Obama’s picture it states: “Barack ObamaBarack ObamaWhite House on Obama drinking Flint water: 'The man was just thirsty' Report: New Trump finance chairman donated heavily to Dems West Virginia is no longer Clinton country MORE, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” The brochure was advancing a book, apparently by Obama, titled Journeys in Black and White.

According to the report, other clients of Acton & Dystel included Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, Ralph Nader and New Kids on the Block.

My first guess is that if the brochure is legitimate, the then-unknown Obama was tailoring a perhaps fanciful literary persona to make a larger impression. There is as yet no other evidence available that he was actually born in Kenya.

Even if this was the case and the brochure went out with Obama’s approval, it would diminish his cachet and credibility. But of course if it is true, it would force Obama to leave the presidency.
