It’s the lack of transparency, not the Kenyan birth

Regarding Breitbart’s reputation:

Breitbart lost all credibility when they took a hatchet to the Shirley Sherrod video.

… it’s hardly the point whether his credibility has been lost in other areas. The point is simple – does this booklet exist or does it not? Even given that he may have not had control over what was printed, he certainly had the chance to see it and comment on its accuracy or not.

I’m sorry, I don’t buy Obama’s story in any of this. You know and I know that if a publication comes out in our country and it’s wrong, if it prints false basic information about us, we only need bring that to the attention of the person putting it out.

Either President Obama allowed his history to be misrepresented in the past, or it is being misrepresented now. At the least this is an issue of ethics.

Yes it is. And the whole birther issue, the way it’s been allowed to develop and fester – if there was nothing wrong with that certificate and nothing else which was covered up by not releasing it, then why TF not release the damn thing?

You can’t say there’s been transparency there. And this assumption that his last attempt was genuine has been shown, by analysis, to have been so full of holes that the question is no longer: “Is this real?” but “Why is this another shoddy forgery?” He may well have a genuine certificate but that wasn’t it.

Someone’s playing someone like a violin. But as written about the investigation of a different issue at this time, one has to look at the totality of evidence, not one or two little bits. If you go back to a seemingly unrelated matter – his inauguration stage, it was so much a replica of the one in Berlin that it was widely commented on but what wasn’t commented on was what that Berlin edifice actually was.

If you’ve done your homework on that, you know it is attached to Pergamon and this comes back to why it should be in Berlin, to the Nazi posterity’s knowledge and delight and so it goes on. Why did Obama’s handlers choose that particular design, complete with lit torches, for a bloody inauguration in America, for goodness sake?

And please don’t say complete coincidence because inauguration stages of that type are not accidents built by Bob the Builder. And saying there’s no symbolism in Washington is, frankly, amazing, when the very federal note is symbolic and even the Randis of the world know that. They might disparage it but they know it.

And the college records which have mysteriously disappeared. Let’s lift our focus from the bloody birth certificate itself to the whole game-playing charade. For what? Why bother?

The answer lies in disdain – the disdain of Them for us. A now long lost quote by a Labour politician some years back used to head up the Albion Alliance page. In that quote, he said, in essence, that we should be happy to be ruled by such as him because he is au fait with the big picture and knows better.

This is elitism of the worst kind and there’s something rotten in the Washington and Westminster cultures which promotes it and allows it to fester. The expenses scandal was very much about that. Only the little people pay taxes is another. And it’s about people who’ll sell their souls, the Faustian bargain, to be one of those, one of the chosen.

Agatha Christie’s N or M has been quoted on this many times. It’s not as if it’s an unknown phenomenon.

Frankly, though it’s odds on Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii or if he was, then they got him there tout suite on that plane to achieve it is hardly the issue. I mean, seriously – I know longer care. The issue is the dishonesty which has surrounded Obama from Day 1 in so many ways and at a minimum, his lack of transparency.

Coming into the times we are, that is, put simply, quite worrying.

    Worrying indeed. A lack of transparency that stops all questions by the MSM, one that finally lays to rest the quaint notion that a free press is essential to democracy

    Sorry, I disagree to some degree. It is the Kenyan birth, or even — if you believe the person who investigated the Hawaii law that states that if the mother of an unmarried couple is below 21 the newborn child takes the nationality of the father, who apparently was not a US citizen — the fact that Obama does not qualify as eligible for US president.

    His elevation to power smacks of fraud and deception. I agree, it is far from transparent. if we do not know the man and his background it is worrying which way his loyalties lie, what his decisions will be, who he appoints to help run the nation. By every measure it is how the West is run, too.

    The worry then arises that the MSM in the States (and partly here in Europe) has not raised this question and many others. The media not asking questions even when there are astonishingly obvious questions to be asked (the doubts over his ‘autobiography,’ the lack of information on his academic achievements, why a manifestly fake birth certificate was offered)

    The media are somehow in his pocket and will not rock a fragile boat. It may be reasonable to say that there is no one else remotely able to swim if the boat sinks so better to keep a liar and a fraud in office as the consequences of him going are too awful to consider.

    But I come back to my original assertion. If a man who should not be president has been swept to being president of the world’s most powerful, most influential nation, then we are indeed fucked. We can no longer trust the ones we charged to maintain the traditions we rely on. Nor can we trust anything the MSM says or will not say.

    We are indeed fucked, as they say.

    If this pamphlet does exist, if it’s for real, then Obama must be in trouble. I agree with OMG’s comment that the birth and the other things do matter but what I didn’t put very well was that it’s the dishonesty over claiming one thing, knowing that he once said another which will sink him with the American public. They might even put up with a Kenyan birth but will not put up with out-and-out lying to them when it’s so publicly exposed. That does transcend the birther issue in American’s heads.

    I suspect Obama would claim to have been born in Guildford if it suited his purpose that particular day. I also suspect the reality is that he was born in Hawaii and is a kosher US citizen, the alternative being to believe that the Clinton campaign either missed it or did nothing with it. In any event it’s all a bit under the bridge now as he can’t be un-presidented for the last three and a half years. Relevance for November, now that’s something else. As has been said, there are not many possible explanations for this and none of them make him look good. Either the birthers were right all along, or he misrepresented things previously, or someone else did and he chose not to correct it, or someone else did and he failed to notice. As I’ve always felt his talents were exaggerated I think the last is most likely.

    How damaging it is is another matter. I doubt it’ll get anyone voting against Obarmy who wasn’t going to vote against him anyway, and I don’t think anything short of documentary proof and a dozen witnesses to a birth outside the US will get him barred from standing. In any event you can be sure that he, Romney or someone else who’s no better than either will be the next US president and the Yanks will find again that the new boss is the same as the old one.

    What I find so deeply sinister is the completeness with which the Left has managed to shut-down any discussion – to the extent that even some who are usually lampooned as swivel-eyed Rich-wing loons slam the door once the issue of Obama’s origin is raised. They are too scared even to discuss it.

    It is the Left’s power to control the debate, via the media but also in real life, that is troubling.

    I cannot seem to find the daily Mail article. Is it just me or has it been disappeared?

    • May 19, 2012 at 2:36 pm

      How very odd

      The preview shows this page existed and what it looked like with a photo of what appears to be the young Obama and his dad, plus the relevant quote from the booklet, but now it has been vanished.

      I find that sinister news article 2146034 Obama born Kenya raised Indonesia Hawaii Presidents literary agency promotional booklet 1991 claims WAS Africa

      If anybody knows how to get the page saved that would be a good thing to do as only the preview version is available now.

    • May 19, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      BTW, the Mail ran two versions of the story, one with illustrations from the booklet, the other with a photo of Obama.

      Both not there now.

    This is Southern(USSA), slave-owning lying bollocks.
    All of it.
    It’s as lying, corrupt and nasty as the swift-boating episode.
    SO, the USA has a brown-skinned President.
    Next up, what will the reactions be when they get a FEMALE President?

        But Geo W. SHrub is long out of office.
        Now THERE is and was a liar and a cheat.

    The fact that Barry O’Blimey’s team published a clearly fraudulent (and ineptly executed) birth document on the White House web site should have folk at a bare minimum scratching their heads…..

    There’s a pong coming from all this – the Obamessiah ain’t what he claims to be – and clearly has no qualms about lying his face off on any subject. I’m curious about his ties to Goldman Sachs, Wall St. and the Chicago mafia….

      therefore, you are off your head.
      And the CIA was responsible for 11/9, and no Jews were killed …
      yeah, yeah, we know.
