WHO IS “OBAMA?”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 5, 2015) — On Twitter on Thursday, CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller reported that Obama will be speaking at a rally marking the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march in Selma, AL known as a turning point in equal voting rights for blacks.
The march was termed “Bloody Sunday” because of the injuries sustained by dozens of black participants at the hands of Alabama State Troopers.
The trek from Selma to Montgomery was organized by 25-year-old John Lewis, who also led a civil rights protest in Washington, DC two years prior.
Commemorating the event in 2007, then-U.S. Sen. Barack Hussein Obama told an audience in an unaccustomed Southern accent that “because they marched, I got the kind of education I got…,” extolling the benefits gained from the civil rights movement and Selma, in particular.
“Not only is my career the result of the work of the men and women who we honor here today; my very existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today. I mentioned at the Unity Breakfast that a lot of people that asked me, ‘Well, your father was from Africa; your mother was a white woman from Kansas; I’m not sure you had the same experience…'”
Obama then said that his grandfather was a “houseboy” in Kenya under British rule, and “he had to carry a passbook around… because…Africans in their own land and their own country…could not move about freely.”
According to Wikipedia, Onyango Obama “traveled widely, enlisting in the British colonial forces and visiting Europe, India, and Zanzibar. There, Onyango converted from Roman Catholicism to Islam and took the name Hussein. He became a cook for missionaries and local herbalist in Nairobi.”
“Something happened in Selma, Alabama,” Obama said, claiming that the Selma march, which was televised internationally, had an impact on his grandfather in Kenya.
Obama then related that “the Kennedys” advocated and funded a program offering financial aid to “young Africans” to attend universities in the United States and Canada known as the “Kennedy Airlifts,” which began on September 11, 1959. Then-Senator John F. Kennedy is quoted as having said that the United States could play a vital role in African colonies obtaining their independence.
In an undated apparent addition to the website of the JFK Presidential Library and Museum, it is stated on page 1:
At a key point in the 1960 presidential campaign, a dynamic young leader from Kenya named Tom Mboya visited Senator John F. Kennedy. Mboya led a campaign of his own that would eventually bring hundreds of African students to America for higher education, including Barack Obama Sr., President Obama’s father. Kennedy’s decision to support the effort became an issue in the election and possibly a factor in his narrow victory.
Civil rights activist Malcolm X reportedly met with the second group of students during their orientation in New York in September 1960. Some speculate that Malcolm X is Obama’s biological father, not Barack Hussein Obama Sr.
Malcolm was assassinated on February 21, 1965 at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City, just two weeks before the march in Selma, on Lewis’s 25th birthday.
Page 3 of the Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum Airlift article states:
A large proportion of the students would subsequently assume leadership positions in government and the professions in their home countries. One of them was the future Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai of Kenya. Another Kenyan, a brilliant 23-year-old named Barack Obama, was inspired by the 1959 airlift and made his own way to the University of Hawaii. The first African to study in Hawaii, Obama was supported in part by an AASF scholarship fund set up by Jackie Robinson. He graduated at the top of his class. At the university, he met and married an American student named Ann Dunham. Their son, Barack H. Obama Jr., was born on August 4, 1961.
A footnote on page 3 states: “[Note: Portions of this article were based on information in Airlift to America by Tom Shachtman. New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2009.]”
Obama entered the White House in January 2009. Schactman’s book was released in September of that year and is subtitled, “How Barack Obama, Sr., John F. Kennedy, Tom Mboya, and 800 East African Students Changed Their World and Ours.”
The website airlifttoamerica.org states of Schactman’s book:
The book, Airlift to America, and this companion website, tell the long-hidden saga of how a handful of Americans and Kenyans fought the British colonial government, the U.S. State Department, and segregation to “airlift” to U.S. universities, between 1959 and 1963, nearly 800 young East African men and women who would go on to change the world. The students included Wangari Maathai, future Nobel Peace Prize laureate, as well as the nation-builders of post-colonial East Africa — cabinet ministers, ambassadors, university chancellors, clinic and school founders. Scores of others, like Barack Obama Sr., future father of a U.S. president, were inspired by this grand project to come too, and received support from the airlift organizers once here.
The Library of Congress reports that a “book talk” on the subject of the Kennedy Airlifts took place on February 23, 2010 in Washington, DC summarized as follows:
A series of airlifts from East Africa (1959-1963) helped students such as environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize-winner Wangari Maathai, Barack Obama’s father (a former Kenyan government economist) and more than 700 others study at American and Canadian colleges, universities and high schools. Many of those students returned home to a post-colonial, independent East Africa and became nation-builders – cabinet ministers, members of parliaments, founders of clinics and schools. Coordinated by the African American Students Foundation (AASF), the airlifts were made possible in 1959 by a fundraising effort led by such notables as Jackie Robinson, Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, and by a large grant in 1960 from the Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation. Collected by former Executive Director Cora Weiss and donated to the Michigan State University Libraries, the archives of AASF have made it possible for author Tom Shachtman to write “Airlift to America: How Barack Obama Sr., John F Kennedy, Tom Mboya and 800 East African Students Changed Their World and Ours,” published by St. Martin’s Press. Weiss and Shachtman will discuss the book and the AASF at the Library of Congress at noon on Friday, March 12, in the Whittall Pavilion, located on the ground floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building at 10 First Street S.E., Washington, D.C.
Obama continued his March 4, 2007 speech in Selma:
We’re going to start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study…and this young man named “Barack Obama” got one of those tickets and came over to this country, and he met this woman whose great-great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves. But she had a different idea; there was some good craziness goin’ on because they looked at each other, and they decided, “We know that in the world as it has been, it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child,” but something stirred across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama because some folks were willin’ to march across a bridge…
So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not comin’ home when I come to Selma, Alabama!
Obama’s parents reportedly met at the University of Hawaii in 1960 after his alleged father, Barack Hussein Obama, is said to have arrived in Hawaii in 1959 and met Dunham in a Russian class. Obama claims a birth date of August 4, 1961, three and one-half years before the Selma march. The birth year of his alleged father has been reported as both 1934 and 1936.
In January 2008, The Guardian reported:
One of the first students airlifted to America was Barack Obama Sr, who married a white Kansas native named Ann Dunham during his US studies. Their son, born in 1961 and named for his father, has only once mentioned his Kennedy connection on the campaign trail.
The Guardian described Obama’s 2006 trip to Kenya as a “homecoming” and quoted Obama’s statements from his 2007 Selma address.
On March 30, 2008, The Washington Post reported Obama’s statements of the Kennedy Airlift’s alleged sponsorship of his father as “overstated.” Obama reportedly told the same 2007 story as to how his father arrived in the United States to an audience at American University early in 2008.
On July 11, 2008, Michelle Obama said that “Barack saw his mother, who was very young and very single when she had him, and he saw her work hard to complete her education and try to raise he and his sister.”
A researcher who traveled to the Hawaii Department of Health in July 2010 observed an entry in an official Marriage Index book of the marriage of Barack Hussein Obama and Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s claimed mother, but there exists little to no evidence that they lived together as husband and wife.
A biographer of Barack Obama Sr. confirmed in July 2011 that “federal immigration officials…were concerned that he [Barack Obama] had more than one wife” and that “although they were married they do not live together and Miss Dunham is making arrangements with the Salvation Army to give the baby away.”
According to documents released in July 2011 by the U.S. State Department to Arizona resident Kenneth Allen, Barack Hussein Obama the elder reported having “a wife in the Philippines” who was a U.S. citizen as well as a spouse in Kenya. A file maintained by Harvard University, where Obama Sr. studied for his Master’s degree, revealed that a Harvard administrator “thinks he’s married to someone in Kenya and someone in Honolulu.” Obama’s rapprochement with women reportedly earned him an expulsion from Harvard before he completed his Ph.D., and both he and his father were polygamists.
Obama Sr.’s transcripts from the University of Hawaii are reportedly not available to the public.
Representatives of the U.S. State Department, then led by Hillary Clinton, told Allen that all passport records prior to 1965 for Stanley Ann Dunham were “destroyed,” but the National Archives denied ever having destroyed passport records.
In March 1965, Dunham reportedly married her second husband, Lolo Soetoro, although the State Department documents identify two different dates and years as the couple’s wedding date.
Obama has also claimed as “home” the cities of Chicago, IL; Jakarta, Indonesia; Honolulu, HI, and his wife has stated Kenya to be Obama’s “home country,” a claim with which members of the Kenyan Parliament agreed in 2010.
The leader of Barack Obama’s birthplace, K’Ogelo Village, has implored Obama to “consider coming home” before his de facto presidency ends.
Obama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango reportedly cared for Michelle’s and his children when they were young while a visitor to the U.S., but Obama claimed to know nothing of her presence in the country as an illegal alien in 2008 as she collected public benefits and lived in subsidized housing in Boston. Obama reportedly played golf during Zeituni’s funeral in April of last year.
In December 2013, another relative, Onyango “Omar” Obama, was found to be living in the U.S. illegally after having been arrested for DUI. Both Zeituni and Omar were permitted to remain in the country.
Hillary Clinton has recently been exposed as having utilized a private server maintained in her home for official State Department electronic communications while she served as Secretary of State under Obama from 2009 to 2013. Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, reportedly believed that Obama did not qualify for the presidency as a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.
Historical evidence strongly suggests that a person whose father was a citizen of another country was not considered “natural born” by the Framers of the Constitution.
In early 2012, filmmaker Bettina Viviano told Dr. Jerome Corsi that Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign for the Democrat presidential nomination was met with “death threats, threats, intimidation, document falsifying, vandalism, property theft.”
Viviano stated that Bill Clinton had planned on divulging that Obama was not eligible for the presidency but stopped short after a close political friend, Bill Gwatney, was assassinated for unknown reasons and then the Clintons’ daughter Chelsea was reportedly threatened by Obama operatives.
After Obama took office, questions about his eligibility continued to gain momentum. In early 2011, considering challenging Obama for the presidency in 2012, businessman Donald Trump publicly demanded that Obama release his “long-form” birth certificate proving that he was born in the United States and therefore presumably eligible to serve.
On April 27, 2011, the White House released what it said was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate obtained from the Hawaii Department of Health by his personal attorney, Judith Corley. However, within 24 hours, the image was denounced as a poor forgery by graphics experts.
A criminal investigation launched in September 2011 by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse labeled the image a “computer-generated forgery” at the first of two formal press conferences on March 1, 2012, along with Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form disseminated to members of the public who requested it through Freedom of Information Act requests.
The Selective Service System refused to cooperate in the posse’s investigation, instead referring Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and lead investigator Mike Zullo to the FBI. Despite a second press conference in July 2012 which provided more detail as to the methods by which the posse reached its conclusions, the mainstream media refused to investigate or report the findings on the public airwaves.
Zullo has revealed that the investigation has found no evidence of Obama’s presence in Hawaii before the age of five. In November, Zullo stated at a Tea Party meeting that at one point, the investigation “turned very dark.”
Obama lied to the American people regarding his health care plan, known as “Obamacare,” by stating, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” More than five million people lost medical plans they found affordable and adequate after the main provisions of Obamacare took effect in 2013.
Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, lied about his knowledge of the Fast & Furious gunrunning operation which killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent and several hundred Mexicans.
The Obama regime lied about the cause of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans on September 11, 2012.
In a court brief concerning Obama’s recent edicts on illegal aliens, the Department of Justice admitted that assurances it made to a federal judge that the new deferred deportation policies announced unilaterally by Obama on November 20, 2014 had not been enacted were false.
Radio host Carl Gallups, who has cultivated a professional relationship with Zullo, has hinted at Obama’s “deep Sunni [Muslim] background” and speculated that Obama may not be a U.S. citizen.
Malcolm X was a Sunni Muslim. Obama began claiming to be a Christian during the 2008 presidential campaign but clearly favors Islam over Christianity and Judaism.
Trump believes that Obama obtained scholarships to attend U.S. universities either by applying as a foreign student or by actually having been a citizen of a foreign country and therefore qualifying for aid designated for foreign students studying in the United States.
Congress has refused to investigate Obama’s fraudulent documentation. It has been speculated that blackmail has been used against U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and others by the Obama regime to obtain the results it wants, particularly in regard to the June 2012 ruling upholding Obamacare as constitutional if the fines associated with the failure to purchase health insurance were considered to be a “tax” rather than a “penalty.”
Upon taking office, Obama had promised “an unprecedented level of openness in Government.”
Zullo has promised that when all of the investigatory information about Obama is made public, it will prove “gut-wrenching.”
