Indonesian-born Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, later called “Bapak,” founded a belief system during the 1930s which was embraced in more than 80 countries

(Jan. 26, 2014) — In a PPSimmons News & Ministry video released on Saturday, Pastor and PPSimmons co-founder Carl Gallups provides a narrative based on a recent article published at American Thinker which hypothesized as to the reasons the name “Soebarkah” appeared on documents released by the U.S. State Department in July 2010 said to be passport applications for Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.

The biographical line of the author of the AT article, Jason Kissner, states that he is an “associate professor of criminology at California State University, Fresno.”

Questions about the origins of Dunham’s alleged son, Barack Hussein Obama, have swirled since 2007, when commentator Chris Matthews stated on air that he was “born in Indonesia” and had an “Islamic background.” Since his first campaign for the presidency, Obama has claimed that he is a faithful Christian, although he attended a church which taught Black Liberation Theology in Chicago for many years led by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

The U.S. Constitution mandates that the president and commander-in-chief must be a “natural born Citizen,” which most Americans understand to mean born in the United States.  However, historically, the citizenship of the parents was a determining factor also, perhaps more important than the birthplace of the child.

Children of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S. are not granted U.S. citizenship, but rather, are born citizens of the nation of their parents’ citizenship.  Since its passage, the meaning of the 14th Amendment has been misinterpreted to include as citizens anyone born within the borders of the United States, regardless of the “jurisdiction” to which the parents belong.

Obama has reported connections to Indonesia, where his biography states he spent four years during his childhood; to Kenya, where his alleged father was born, raised, and to which he returned after obtaining higher education in the U.S.; and to the United States through his mother.  In June 2008, Amadu Jacky Kaba, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Graduate Department of Public and Healthcare Administration, Seton Hall University, wrote a paper entitled “Barack Obama’s Dual Triple Heritage.”  Obama dual triple heritage

In the video, Gallups points out that in early 2011, Loretta Fuddy was nominated and confirmed to the position of director of the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) after Dr. Neal Palafox‘s nomination was unexpectedly derailed.  Palafox himself had stated that he was removed from the nomination process unbeknownst to him until it was reported in the media.

Fuddy had a background in social work and was the first non-medical doctor to head the department.  She was nominated by newly-elected Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who has claimed that he knew Obama’s parents in Hawaii both before and after Obama was allegedly born there in August 1961.  Abercrombie had stated that “nobody was invited” to Obama’s parents’ alleged wedding on the island of Maui.

Just before he nominated Fuddy, Abercrombie said that he could find no official birth record for Obama at the Health Department.

Fuddy had been a central figure in the release of Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate after businessman Donald Trump questioned why Obama had never made it public amongst doubts that he is a “natural born Citizen” or even a U.S. citizen.  After the Health Department announced a change in policy in 2009 to release only short-form birth certificates, Fuddy reportedly made an exception for Obama by permitting the copying of his original long-form birth certificate shortly before April 27, 2011, the day it was uploaded to the White House website.

However, the image was quickly declared a forgery by experts and later, by a two-plus-year criminal investigation carried out by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse, which is ongoing, having branched out into other areas of Obama’s past for scrutiny.

On December 11, 2013, Fuddy was declared deceased after the single-engine airplane in which she was traveling on official business was forced to make a water landing.  The pilot, Clyde Kawasaki, whose skills were credited with making the expert landing after the plane’s engine failed, was reportedly shocked to hear that Fuddy had died, as when he last observed her, she was floating in the water along with the other survivors, all of whom had donned life vests under his supervision.

More than a month after her death, an autopsy reported allegedly stated that Fuddy died of cardiac arrythmia, although her brother Lewis was quoted as having said that she did not have a heart condition. Police were quoted as saying that her death “was accidental.”  Reports of injuries resulting from the water landing differ between the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and various AP articles.

An obituary for Fuddy states that her mother’s maiden name was “Antone” and that her birthday was April 12, although her brother’s apparent Facebook page shows a post appearing to have been made by Fuddy herself stating that it was December 4.

Fuddy was a member of “Subud,” an alleged belief system founded in 1925 by Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, an Indonesian man of Muslim faith who reported experiencing a spiritual awakening as a young man which allowed for a greater relationship with God.

Fuddy was reportedly an active member of the Catholic church, but she also held a position of leadership in the Subud organization from 2006 to 2008.  On August 23, 2008, Fuddy announced on the Subud USA website that “My exciting news is that I am working with a committee to host the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse Conference in Hawaii in 2010.  We just learned a couple weeks ago that Hawaii was selected for the site.  I’m one of five committee members who will be attending the international conference in Hong Kong Sept 4-10th.  We need to learn the scope of the work, meet the incoming president and his committee, as well as promote the Hawaii conference.  The conference usually has 3,000 attendees from around the globe. I will keep all of you informed… at some point we will be issuing a call for papers and presentations. I hope that several Subud programs around the world would be interested in participating in the conference.”

Fuddy was referred to as “Deliana” on the Subud website.  In 2001, Fuddy also was described by the Honolulu Advertiser as a “helper” in the Subud belief system and was shown experiencing the “latihan,” or “opening” first experienced by Bapak.

It has been found that followers of Subud often change their first and perhaps their last names.  On a Facebook page apparently belonging to Fuddy’s brother, Lewis, Fuddy is pictured with the name “Deliana Antone.”  In official news releases, Fuddy is referred to alternately as “Loretta” and “Deliana,” and sometimes by both first names.  Fuddy Deliana 2009 Award

Gallups’ son and rising citizen journalist, Brandon, stated on Gallups’ “Freedom Friday” radio show on January 24 that Fuddy was chairwoman of Subud USA in Seattle at the time of her death.  He then added, “Obama’s supposed mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was a member as documented in her biography of this same cultish religion during the time she was in Indonesia…”

Gallups responded to his son that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will shortly release “Arpaio brings out his devastating evidence in all of this.”  Arpaio assumed a role in the investigation several months ago when Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo stated that “universe-shattering evidence” had been uncovered regarding Obama’s background.

Of Fuddy, Brandon said that she assumed the directorship of the Health Department “just three or four months” before Obama’s long-form birth certificate was publicly released.

In April 2011, just one week before the White House released what it represented to be a certified copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate from the Hawaii Department of Health, Stanley Ann Dunham biographer Janny Scott admitted that many believed that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii.  In an excerpt published in The New York Times, Scott wrote:

The president’s mother has served as any of a number of useful oversimplifications. In the capsule version of Obama’s life story, she is the white mother from Kansas coupled alliteratively to the black father from Kenya. She is corn-fed, white-bread, whatever Kenya is not. In “Dreams From My Father,” the memoir that helped power Obama’s political ascent, she is the shy, small-town girl who falls head over heels for the brilliant, charismatic African who steals the show. In the next chapter, she is the naïve idealist, the innocent abroad. In Obama’s presidential campaign, she was the struggling single mother, the food-stamp recipient, the victim of a health care system gone awry, pleading with her insurance company for cover­age as her life slipped away. And in the fevered imaginings of supermarket tabloids and the Internet, she is the atheist, the Marx­ist, the flower child, the mother who abandoned her son or duped the newspapers of Hawaii into printing a birth announcement for her Kenyan-born baby, on the off chance that he might want to be president someday.

Two years before Fuddy’s death, investigative reporter Wayne Madsen wrote that “Barack Obama is not a secret Muslim but he may be a secret Subud sect member,” by a connection of Dunham to Subud.  Quoted at the Red Dirt Report, Madsen reported that “Ann Soetoro…maintained close connections with Subud and her own religious beliefs match those of the Subud to a tee.”

Subud founder Bapak reportedly advocated the creation of a “world bank.”

“Ann Soetoro (Obama’s mother, aka Stanley Ann Dunham) maintained close connections with Subud and her own religious beliefs match those of the Subud to a tee. Janny Scott’s book, A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother, provide a unique insight into Ann’s religious beliefs, which tend more to Subud beliefs than her own Unitarian upbringing.” – See more at: http://www.reddirtreport.com/red-dirt-grit/subud-obama-and-laurel-canyon-rock-hits-connection#sthash.kg5SDIxQ.dpuf

Dunham reportedly worked in “microfinance” in Indonesia for the Ford Foundation, which Peter Geithner, father of Obama’s former Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner.

On his website, Madsen states that his purpose is to “hold government officials accountable for their actions.”  He is author of a book entitled “The Manufacturing of a President: the CIA’s Insertion of Barack H. Obama, Jr. into the White House,” self-published at Lulu.  Madsen’s lead-in to the book reads:

This book covers Barack H. Obama, Jr’s rapid rise in American politics and the role that the CIA played in propelling him into the White House. Research is based on formerly classified CIA and State Department files, personal interviews, and international investigations. Obama’s birth certificate has never been the issue. The real issue, which affects his eligibility to serve as President of the United States, is his past and likely current Indonesian citizenship. The reader will be taken through the labyrinth of covert CIA operations in Africa, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and other regions. The real history of President Obama, his family, and the CIA quickly emerges as the reader wades into the murky waters of America’s covert foreign operations.

Madsen is an advocate of a single-payer health care system, describing it as “not perfect” but possessing “outstanding features.”

Gallups reported that those joining the spiritual community of Subud often changed their names or adopted a new name.  Fuddy reportedly was born in British Columbia, Canada.  An entry from August last year states that family members still reside in Canada. Her last personal entry was made on December 10, 2013, the day before her death.

An article in Midweek from August 2013 stated that Fuddy was raised with “Catholic values” and was “known to her friends as ‘Deliana.'”  The same article quoted Fuddy as having described “health” as “the alignment of social, mental and spiritual well-being – body, mind, spirit – that allows citizens to be actively engaged in the community.”  Her “faith” and “public service” were said to have been intertwined.

Bapak believed that his followers should be active in assisting less fortunate members of the community.

At 5:26 in the 6:06 video, a photograph is shown of Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, to whom Barack Hussein Obama bears a striking resemblance.

Sumohadiwidjojo was born in Indonesia in 1901 and claimed to have experienced a spiritual awakening of sorts which he sought to share with others seeking a deeper relationship with God.  A practicing Muslim when he experienced his “receiving,” Sumohadiwidjojo eventually traveled worldwide to share his beliefs with others, including Christians, Hindus and Buddhists.

“Bapak” means “respected father” in Indonesian.  Bapak claimed that Subud is not a religion, but rather, “the life training of a normal human being.”

Dunham reportedly lived in Indonesia for much of her life and was known by multiple names.  She is reported to have taught English at the U.S. Embassy, worked in the field of “rural development” and as “a consultant” to the Indonesian government while living in Indonesia.

In August 2010, The Post & Email interviewed a native Indonesian who became a naturalized U.S. citizen regarding the name “Soebarkah.”  At that time, our interviewee believed that the name indicated that Obama had been adopted by his Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.  “Sam” told us that it was common for Indonesian people to be known by only one name, a fact confirmed by Scott in her biography of Dunham.

Blogger Lame Cherry agreed.

Dunham is said to have worked for the Ford Foundation while in Indonesia.  According to Scott, Dunham had domestic help which allowed her to “work, pursue her inter­ests and come and go as she wanted.”

Obama reportedly attended the Punahou School in Honolulu from the fifth through twelfth grades while living with his grandparents.  His mother reportedly returned to Indonesia after doing graduate study in Hawaii during her son’s high school years.  Obama has described his mother as “the dominant figure in my formative years.”

According to Scott, Dunham boasted that her son could become “the first black president.”  Scott also was critical of Dunham’s parenting of her son when she stated, “Ann uprooted Barry, at age 6, and transplanted him to Jakarta. Now she was up­rooting him again, at barely 10, and sending him back, alone. She would follow him to Hawaii only to leave him again, less than three years later.”

Does the history of this man hold the key to the enigma that is “Barack Hussein Obama?”

Dunham and her parents have been described as “Marxist atheists.” Bapak reportedly opposed communism.

It has been suggested that Obama is not black, but rather, of Asian heritage.  He declared May 2012 and  May 2013 “Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.”  Speaking at the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies on May 8, 2012, said, “I am thrilled to be here tonight because all of you hold a special place in my heart. When I think about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, I think about my family — my sister, Maya; my brother-in-law, Konrad, my nieces Suhaila and Savita. I think about all the folks I grew up with in Honolulu, as part of the Hawaiian ohana. I think about the years I spent in Indonesia. So for me, coming here feels a little bit like home. This is a community that helped to make me who I am today. It’s a community that helped make America the country that it is today.”

Obama has called Jakarta, Indonesia his “old home town.”

According to the World Subud Association, “Subud members endeavour to put into practice what they experience in the Subud latihan. This includes a rich variety of projects including commercial, social, humanitarian, cultural, educational and healthcare initiatives and undertakings.”

In the August 2011 edition of SubudVoice, Scott is quoted as having written of Dunham in her biography that some of those hired by Dunham to be English teachers in Indonesia were practitioners of Subud.  SubudVoiceEnglishAug2011-1  In the newsletter, Fuddy’s appointment to the directorship of the Hawaii Department of Health is also celebrated.

The December 15, 2011 Red Dirt Report concludes, “…considering Obama’s links to the CIA, via his family, and various foreign intrigues involving his mother and father and his mother’s parents, we need to know what, if any, role Subud plays in Obama’s life and decision making [sic] as our nation’s president.”


Update:  Fuddy’s obituary announcement posted at the Hawaii Department of Health website is no longer available as of this writing from the following link:

  1. WOW! They could be father and son. Obama better hire another team of lawyers, and find out why the first team let this get by, without it being sealed in his top secret file.
