Obama’s Family Secret: Perhaps now we know why Obama did so much to hide his birth certificate.

I’ve been puzzled for a number of years why Obama has gone to such lengths to hide his birth certificate. There’s no question but that he has done this, in my mind. He fought against making it public for years; and when things reached such a peak that he could no longer resist, he produced, with great fanfare, what he claimed was a scan of his so called “Long form” Birth Certificate. The problem is that this is an image that has clearly been tampered with, as experts have demonstrated. It is not, then, his genuine certificate.

The most common explanation for why this was done, one advocated by the so-called “Birthers”, is that Obama was actually born in Kenya, and is thus not qualified to be President of the United States.

I personally have never found this credible. It requires too many complicated actions on the part of the actors in this story, and there’s no evidence that Obama’s mother ever went near Kenya at this time. So I believe he was definitely born in the USA. But I have always been convinced that Obama was hiding something, something that he saw as very damaging to his career, and the birth certificate provided the evidence for it. That was why it was being suppressed.

We have not seen the genuine birth certificate to this day, and probably never will: it would not surprise me to learn that it had somehow been permanently lost. But I do think that we might now have an explanation, in a new film called “Dreams from My Real Father”, directed by Joel Gilbert, for what he was trying to hide.

In his book “Dreams from my Father” Obama mentions a man called “Frank” numerous times, and the London Telegraph has confirmed that this was a man called Frank Marshall Davis. In the 1940’s he moved from the mainland to Hawai’i, where he remained until his death in 1987. Davis knew Stanley Dunham, Obama’s grandfather for years, very well indeed in fact, as Dawna Weatherly-Williams affirms in the Telegraph article. “They’d play Scrabble and drink and crack jokes and crack jokes and argue. Frank always won and he was always very braggadocio about it too. It was all jocular. They didn’t get polluted drunk. And Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together.”

According to Mrs Weatherly-Williams Davis met Obama when he was 10 years old. Thereafter, they came to know each other well, for Davis became Obama’s mentor and counselor.

In his film Joel David offers an interesting hypothesis: Frank Davis Marshall was Obama’s real father. The elder Obama married Ann Dunham to cover up the relationship. And, very probably, Obama’s original birth certificate lists Davis as his father.

This seems quite credible. As the Telegraph article notes, David often had sex with white women, even boasting that “the number of white babes interested in at least one meeting with a Negro male has been far more than I can handle”. He married one of these “white babes”, in fact, Helen Canfield, who gave him a number of children. And meeting Ann Stanley Dunham would have been easy for Davis: she was at the University of Hawai’i at the time she fell pregnant, and Davis often hosted UH students. As Davis himself notes in his book Livin’ the Blues: Memoirs of a Black Journalist and Poet (pp 327-8):

“My neighbors were young men and women mainly from the mainland between eighteen and twenty-five years old, here on vacation or to attend the University of Hawaii. For the most part, they were from California, with a few from as far away as Maine and Florida. In addition there were others from South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Samoa, Tonga, and the other islands of the South Pacific. Hippies were still numerous, but the majority I thought of as members of the Now Generation. My relationships and experiences were so interesting and fantastic I detailed them, along with my three trips to the mainland in 1973 and 1974 to read my poetry, in a separate tome entitled “That Incredible Waikiki Jungle.”

What immediately impressed me about these young Americans, by far the numerical majority and most of them meeting for the first time in Hawaii, was their warm camaraderie and my ability to communicate on their own terms with no hint of a generation gap. Virtually all the young brothers consorted with ofay chicks (at least 80 percent of them longhaired blondes), and the sisters were affiliated with white boys. Occasionally a brother, a honky lad, and two white girls rented quarters together. Young blacks in bountiful Afros and wearing dashikis crashed in pads rented by ofays they never knew before; occasionally I permitted young white girls to sleep overnight on my floor. I saw no signs of racial hangups; these were all members of the Now Generation associating with whom they liked and color be damned.”

If Davis was indeed Obama’s father, however, why hide it? The answer is very simple. Davis was a rabid communist and a pornographer as well. Indeed, he was very likely a Soviet agent. He is not the kind of man you would want as your father. And you emphatically would not want him as your father if you were aspiring to be a rising politician, let alone President of the United States.

When I first encountered this hypothesis I felt towards it an immediate instinctual rejection. But what is remarkable about it is that the more you consider it, the more likely it seems to get. We know that there exist numerous nude and fetish pictures of Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. These are odd indeed. How and where were these taken, and by whom? Why would a middle-class girl allow these to be taken? Gilbert has an explanation. He argues persuasively in his film that these were taken by Davis during their affaire, when she was one month pregnant with Obama.

In addition, Gilbert’s thesis helps explains another oddity that has deeply puzzled me. There is a picture posted on the Obama Facebook site which has clearly been doctored. If you look below, you will see that Stanley Ann Dunham’s right hand is, remarkably, that of a black man, not a white woman. Even if one ignores its color, it is clearly much too large a hand for it to be hers. A black man was airbrushed out here.

Who was this black man? Well, a reasonable hypothesis is that it was Frank Marshall Davis.

Obama family black man's hand

Am I fully convinced by all of this that Frank Marshall Davis was Obama’s father? No, not entirely. But I think the evidence is starting to grow quite strong that this may in fact be so. It helps to make sense of so many odd facts: why Obama is so secretive about his birth records; why a picture was airbrushed to remove a black man; why Ann Dunham posed for pornographic pictures; why Davis was his mentor.

It also provides a basis for Obama’s life which is quite enlightening. If this relationship is real, he grew up in an environment where there existed a deep family secret. I have no idea when he found this out, but my guess, considering his close relationship with Davis, is that it was quite early. People who are trained to family secrets tend to become secretive by nature. And if ever there is a man who wants to keep his life secret, it is Obama, for he has made sure that we know only what he tells us, and that his records are carefully sequestered. We know nothing about his records at Columbia or at Harvard; and his dealings in Chicago are shrouded in mystery. There is something fundamentally hidden about the man.

But you can make your own judgment about him. See for yourself.


Selling weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood?

And now Obama is about to sell tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood’s government of Egypt. How, I wonder, did we become so suicidal? I have a feeling that it’s because we feel so secure that we have no concerns that we could harm ourselves by our actions.

Executive Order or Presidential Decree?

Obama has been issuing one Executive Order after another, overriding the clear will of the legislation passed by Congress. When the word “work” as defined the legislation can be redefined as something that clearly is not work at all, what can a President not do? The separation of powers is under serious attack, and no one seems to care a great deal. But this is how tyranny is born.

The New York Times biased? How surprising.

Somehow, I really don’t think this will be at all surprising to most people. Only those whose opinions match those of the New York Times would even question this. But it is nevertheless interesting that even the Public Editor of the paper sees it as biased towards the progressive viewpoint.

From Everest to the Dead Sea: how the personal became crucial

Is there an odder time to live in, when such small issues assume such strangely huge importance? Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” was certainly not the comment of an old-style gentleman, but did it really deserve the attention it received? There is something pretty strange about a healthy young woman demanding free tax-payer-funded contraceptives and pelvic exams as her god-given right, and it does tend to make one wonder what kind of life she leads to require such large-scale subsidization of her sex-life. The Democrats are even planning on having her talk at their Convention, so crucial is the issue most dear to her heart. We can only hope that she does not spend a great deal of time comparing the virtues of Ortho-Cyclin and Yasmin to Lybrel and Seasonique,

Then of course came the “War on Women”, a Democratic meme that seems, as far as I can see, to be an attempt to elevate hysterical politics (yes, I know, but I love the pun) into the central theme of this election. Senator Barbara Boxer stated at a Planned Parenthood meeting, in her usual low-key fashion, that “There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan — if they are elected — would become its top generals.” It’s hard to see what exactly the Republicans could do to women, given that the Supreme Court has found in its intuitive wisdom that the framers intended their 18th century constitution to include 20th century mores, and there is very little Congress can do to overcome this. But no matter. The idea is much more important than its content, and it scarcely matters that this fear only has reality in the minds of those of the more liberal bent..

In the face of such Republican evil, it doesn’t appear to matter that Obama seems to have a kamikaze kind of attitude towards things economic: the Democrats clearly feel that the Divine Wind of Obama’s words is all the economy needs to thrive. It doesn’t matter that the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over Egypt, and is busily turning it into an Islamic paradise of the kind we know so well in Iran. The fact that these people are our sworn enemies seems to be no reason to stop giving them the one and a half billion dollars of foreign aid we’ve been giving them. If we just keep paying them, there’s surely no doubt that they’ll realize that we’re great people, and stop hating us quite as much as they seem to. They even suggest they not might attack Israel if we do.

No, all those things are unimportant, in the face of the Republican threat to women. Everyone knows the horrible things they’d surely do. We know it from their past actions. They might try to force women into the trauma of reading a pamphlet on the development of a fetus. They might force them to view an ultrasound of the baby. Worst of all, they might even change the wording of literature and imply that a new human being was developing in a woman’s uterus!

Now we’re talking. This is the kind of thing that a superpower should be most concerned with! These are issues worth voting for!

It’s interesting to consider what happened in the West to make us feel such small things were so important. But that’s for another post.

Obama the Wizard

There’s something about Obama’s pretensions that make one want to mock him. He was, after all, the man who famously said:

“I face this challenge with profound humility and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people … . I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal … . This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation.”

The extraordinary pretentiousness of this statement is breathtaking. And yet, he was also capable of saying things that were hilarious in their unintended consequences, for example:

“My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”

So here I feel it entirely understandable that some unknown photographer caught him in a pose I am sure he felt was entirely appropriate: that of the Wizard holding the sun in his worthy palms…

The Obama Administration’s Dishonesty

Obama Administration’s Dishonesty

What extraordinary dishonesty. I quote:

“She said the administration doesn’t have the ability to issue a stay of action for a broad category of people, but said the new policy is different because it invests decisions on a case-by-case basis with agents and officers, who are instructed not to pursue cases for those who meet the guidelines she laid out.”

How is it not a broad category of people when those who were brought to the US as minors are not to be deported? How is it a case-by-case policy when it includes everyone who fulfills certain criteria? How does this decision invest power with agents and officers when they are being told what to do by policy?

Obama the Conciliator…?


Salon comes through again, with a truly nutty interpretation of the Obama presidency.  It does make me wonder what world they are living in, when they call Obama too much of a conciliator.
