For what this brochure reveals is that, regardless of where Obama was born, he has been manufacturing his biography from the day he hit the mainland.
The emergence of this brochure two weeks after David Maraniss’s revelation in Vanity Fair about Obama’s composite girl friends and one week after the debut of Ed Klein’s new book on Obama, The Amateur, suggests some media string-pulling beyond the powers of anyconservative.
In the age of instant communication Brietbart.com’s revelation that Barack Obama was listed on his agent, Jane Dystel’s brochure, as having been “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii” is already old news.
This news, however, is simply too hot for the major media to ignore. I would expect Obama spokesman Jay Carney to lay off the “mistake” to some misguided publicist, but that will no longer work. For what this brochure reveals is that, regardless of where Obama was born, he has been manufacturing his biography from the day he hit the mainland. The emergence of this brochure two weeks after David Maraniss’s revelation in Vanity Fair about Obama’s composite girl friends and one week after the debut of Ed Klein’s new book on Obama, The Amateur, suggests some media string-pulling beyond the powers of any conservative. Call me a conspiracy theorist — a tag that has lost much of its sting in the last few hours — but I sense the hand of Clinton.
The Klein book, for instance, opens with an intimate meeting chez Clinton in which Bill encourages Hillary to do the seemingly unthinkable, namely challenge Obama in 2012. Someone at that meeting was allowed to talk to Klein, probably encouraged to talk to Klein.
Indeed, the meeting may have been staged for Klein’s benefit.
Ever since the 2008 campaign, many voters, and some journalists, too, have felt they know Barack Obama’s life story. In fact, the story they know is the one Obama told them.
Obama’s first memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” published in 1995, has become the semiofficial record of his life. But it is not the complete record of his life. It’s partially fictionalized, with composite characters who Obama has always acknowledged were created to make the story read better. It focuses on a few themes Obama wanted to present to the public about himself. And, as with any memoir, it is told completely from Obama’s point of view. It’s not a biography.
In New Biography, Obama Asks: Am I an American?

…the Maraniss book published last week in Vanity Fair reveals a portrait of Obama that might have enriched the voters’ understanding of him in the 2008…
The excerpt focuses on Obama’s brief time in New York after his graduation from Columbia University. The son of a Kenyan father and an American expatriate mother, Obama emerges as a man questioning whether he viewed himself, or wanted to be viewed by others, as an American. Not in a citizenship sense — Obama was born in the United States and that was that — but in the sense of how he saw the world and wanted to be seen by it.
Obama had a lot of Pakistani friends; Maraniss writes that if Obama and his girlfriend socialized as a couple, “it was almost always with the Pakistanis.” Obama appeared to identify with his friends as fellow non-Americans. “For years when Barack was around them, he seemed to share their attitudes as sophisticated outsiders who looked at politics from an international perspective,” Maraniss writes. “He was one of them, in that sense.”
…..Speaking of the “Obama White House,” this chain of events brings to mind what happened after Kristen Breitweiser, a 9/11 widow, asked President Obama if he could make public the redacted material in the above-noted Congressional Joint Inquiry.
Obama assured her he would work to that end, but Breitweiser, and we, the American people have yet to see it.
And speaking of Anthony Summers, a co-author on all three of those articles that have come out in the past week, he reported on this and related matters in a good article in Vanity Fair last year, titled “The Kingdom and the Towers.”
The 60s generation embraced moral relativism—the belief that there is no right and wrong—and it swept across our nation like a firestorm. Five decades later a large number of Americans have completely lost their moral compass. We have become the hook up culture, marked by casual sexual encounters. We are a nation of Girls Gone Wild, where young women expose themselves before cameras.
How much deeper into the immoral abyss can we slide?When a nation has no clear understanding of what exactly is moral and immoral the younger generation’s thinking becomes muddled. Without proper guidance from their parents, young people are unable to discern good from evil.Speaking of which, teen idol Miley Cyrus is working on changing her image to sultry seductress. In her raunchy new music video single “Who Owns My Heart” fans won’t recognize the cute teenage girl who plays the title role of Hanna Montana on the Disney channel. Miley is17-years-old and apparently thinks she’s all grown up. If appearances are any indication, she seems quite comfortable in her new role. Watching the video makes one think that writhing on a bed wearing only underwear and grinding with males and females on the dance floor wearing short shorts and a reveling top is old hat for Lady Miley. One thing’s for sure: Miley Cyrus is no longer the Disney darling she once was. Watch her video. See the new Barbarella do her thing.In a 2007 interview with USA Today, Miley said that her Christian faith is “the main thing” in her life. She said that God wants her to be a “light, a testimony” in Hollywood.
Then in 2008 Miley caused quite a stir when she posed for Vanity Fair. While there was no nudity, the 15-year-old was wrapped in what appeared to be a bed sheet with her entire back exposed.At the ripe old age of 16, Miley dawned short shorts, black boots and did a pole-dancing performance at the Teen Choice Awards.
