BORN IN THE USA? UH-OH! YAHOO REPORTS OBAMA BORN SOMEPLACE ELSE


130622obamasurprisedz

In an article published online Friday, Rachel Rose Hartman of Yahoo! News lamented that President Obama’s upcoming trip to Africa would not include a stop in Kenya, “the country of his birth.”

Whoa. What?

The mainstream media for years has been lockstep behind the president in affirming his birth in Hawaii, even derisively labeling those who question the official story as “birthers.”

And in fact, Talking Points Memo reports that within 90 minutes of the story’s publication, Yahoo! News added the following: “Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the president’s birthplace.”

The wording of the story was then changed from referencing Kenya as “the country of his birth” to “his ancestral homeland.”

A screenshot of the original article (emphasis added) can be seen below:

A screenshot of the amended article can also be seen below:

Hartman’s article spoke of the Obama family’s upcoming visit to Africa, which is expected to take place from June 26-July 3, and planned stops in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania.

Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes, however, told reporters Kenya wasn’t on the itinerary.

So was Hartman’s reporting that Obama was born in Kenya a slip-up or a sign of something more?

The answer may be impossible to discover. A spokesperson for Yahoo! News told the Washington Post there would be no comments available beyond the correction.

Social media monitor Twitchy, however, noted that many users of Twitter were quick to assume Hartman a “birther” and blasted her as racist while demanding she be fired.

Curiously, before Obama was elected, it was fairly common to find references in the media that referred to the former Illinois senator as born in Kenya.

The Kenyan government, as well, in 2009 commissioned a cultural museum in Kenya to “honour the birthplace of President Obama.”

Even Obama’s own literary agency billed him as “born in Kenya” as late as 2007 to promote the sale of his book, “Dreams from My Father.”

Yeah, and what else is new.  Both Barry and Michelle Obama have made statements (on video) about Kenya being the place of Obama's birth............it's just that up to now the MSM has ignored those statements and not actually reported on them. 

Our Sheriff in Maricopa county in AZ (metro Phoenix etc.) and Sheriff Joe Arpaio's cold case squad have reported on the validity of the claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii.  Why do so many people act so surprised when they hear this.  And why has no one arrested him and kicked him out of office for his fraud???

Disgusting!

Pixie

 Why? Because they're all bought and paid for. That's why.

I agree with you Pixie...my guess is no one but our Sheriff Joe has the guts to do it...at the same time Schumer, Pelosi and whoever else "verified" king o's eligibity need to be arrested for treason.....and never see the light of day again!!!

And O & Moochelle need to be arrested for perpetrated the biggest fraud in American history. 

Remember the couple that "sneaked" into the WH?   That would be the Obamas.

 

Excellent title for a book, "The couple that sneaked into the WH".

with the sequel being, "The Obamanation of America"

Just think of how many appointees also have been illegally( Where have I heard that word before? )  apointed & will have to be Dis-appointed. !!!  ???

Well, let's be fair here... maybe President Obama was referring to Kenya as one of the 57 states he'd visited...

R.O F L.

Well I would be if it weren't so pathetic.

 More like ROTFPIMPL!

WITH ONE TO GO"!!! REMEMBER!

OLD SARGE,'NAM VET---HEH HEH HEH

WHAT AN IDIOT! AND BIDEN EVEN WORSE.

GOD PLEASE SAVE AMERICA!!!

Jim Bridenstine said neither Obama or Biden were fit to lead our country.  Did he hit the nail on the head or what?

Does that include the states  of Confusion  & Deception?

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
