The Marriage

Although still married to Kezia in 1961, Senior may or may not have married fellow student Anna Dunham.  If so, Senior was now legally a bigamist.  Over his lifetime and through several wives, Senior eventually returns to Kezia.

The legend is that on February 2, 1961, against Madelyn's hopes, and against the desires of Obama's father back in Kenya, Ann, three months pregnant, and Obama hopped a plane to Maui and got married.  The wedding had no witnesses, not even her parents, and no record of the event has yet been found.


Obama, himself, hints that his father and motherís wedding may not have been properly documented.  "How and when the marriage occurred remains a bit murky, a bill of particulars that I have never quite had the courage to explore.  There's no record of a real wedding, a cake, a ring, a giving away of the bride. No families were in attendance; it's not even clear that people back in Kansas were informed." Obama writes in his memoir.

The lack of any documentary evidence, when such evidence for legal marriages that took place in Hawaii during 1961 is readily available today to any inquiring family member, strongly suggests that Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Senior were not ever legally married and that Senior, a married man of 25, almost certainly impregnated the 17-year-old Dunham, since nine months before Obamaís birth would be early November 1960, about three to four weeks before Ann Dunhamís 18th birthday on November 29, 1960.

And this, Michelle Obama says that Senior and Anna were never married.  She described Anna as "very young and very single when she had him (Obama)." (2nd source)

And this -- There is no evidence whatsoever that Senior and Anna ever lived together anywhere, any time.  The living arrangements between the announcement of the wedding and the birth of the child were uncertain.  Most likely, Senior remained in his dorm room while Ann lived with her parents.  Letters written by acquaintances of Senior during the period 1960-1961 with accompanying photographs do not mention or show Anna at all.


Congress critter, Neil Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, Obama's "life beard," said that "nobody" was invited to the wedding ceremony.

According to "Dreams...," Senior eventually told Anna about a former marriage in Kenya but said he was divorced, which she would discover years later was a lie -- but "Dreams..." is a notoriously unreliable account of events.


The only thing for sure is that NOBODY knows what happened between the summer of 1960 and the birth of Barack on August 4, 1961.

DoH Confirms Nuptual Record

Donofrio's associate, KingsKid, sent an email, "Request for Information," letter on September 25, 2009 11:03 AM to Janice Okubo.  On Thursday, October 01, 2009 12:47 PM, Janice Okubo responded to KingsKid with an email.  Attached to the email were the following Index Data:



It isnít clear whether the Index Data provided by Okubo to KingsKid include all of the Index Data available via 338-18(d), -- the marriage Index Data for Stanley Ann and Senior wasn't requested -- that was a freebie.

The key phrase in Ms. Okubo's response to KingsKid is "Index Data."  I don't see any description of what the Index Data, housed at the Department of Health, Health Status Monitoring, 1250 Punchbowl Street, Honolulu, HI, are.

There is some confusion caused by cross-referencing terminology from two different Index Data sets-- Groom and Bride are attributes of a marriage and belong in the Marriage Index Data -- there are no parentage attributes in the Birth Index Data set.

Donofrio says this information puts to bed questions that Stanley Ann and Barack, Sr. werenít married.  He says they were married in Hawaii.

Donofrio asked KingsKid to write back to Okubo and seek additional information.  What I get from this is that there will be more emails, back and forth.  This will go where it will go.

It is important to remember that this "Index" record is not "evidence" of a marriage -- only a formal, sealed marriage certificate is evidence of a state-sanctioned marriage.


And why is Barak Hussein Obama's name misspelled? 

Marriage In Hawaii
Marriage license Laws in the state of Hawaii -- here is what you need to bring with you, and what you need to know about the Hawaii marriage laws before filling out the Hawaii marriage license form.

In order to get married, you need to apply and receive a marriage license.  This is the document in your state that allows you to officially tie the knot under the law.  The rules for acquiring your marriage license varies from state to state, so you should check with your cityís marriage bureau at your clerk of courtís office to find out what your local rules are.

Youíll typically need to apply for your marriage license at least one month before your wedding ceremony.  Youíll traditionally need to send in your birth certificates, tax information, and other official documents.  You donít, however, want to apply for your marriage license too early.  In some states, the licenses do expire, if you donít get married within a few months.

When you apply for your license, youíll not only need a proof of identification and age, will need to provide any information about previous marriages, and will need to pay a nominal fee.  You will also need to have a witness when you sign the application, so plan on bringing your maid of honor or best man with you.  The bride will need to know what her married name will be before she signs the marriage certificate.  Youíll have to write that name on the application.

And, believe it or not, just because you have your marriage license sent to you in the mail does not mean you are officially married.  You need to have a justice of the peace or a religious clergyman sign the document.  On your wedding day, youíll give your chaplain your marriage license, then after the ceremony, heíll sign it and send it to the proper government agency for validation.

None of that documentation has been discovered or released.
The Families React

In "Dreams...," Obama writes that the Dunhams weren't happy with the union, but Barack Senior's father was furious.  He wrote the Dunhams "this long, nasty letter saying that he didn't approve of the marriage," Obama recounted his mother telling him, "He didn't want the Obama blood sullied by a white woman."

Six months after they wed, another letter arrived in Kenya, announcing the birth of Barack Hussein Obama, born Aug. 4, 1961.  Despite her husband's continued anger, Sarah Obama said in a recent interview, she "was so happy to have a grandchild in the U.S."


This is the same Sarah who also said she was in the delivery room when Obama was born in Kenya.


This story originates with Obama, but there is no evidence of an actual marriage -- more Obama BS? -- it's impossible to tell reality from fantasy with this guy -- except for the antipathy the Obamas had for white people.

Living Apart
Memo from William Ward, INS file, dated 31 AUG 1961, on page 34 states:

"They have one child born Honolulu 8/4/1961 -- Barack Obama II, child living with mother (she lives with her parents & Subject resides at 1482 Alencastre St)."

Whether it's Obama lying about Senior being a goat herder, or Senior leaving "the family" when he was two years old, his life story is a crock -- demonstrably so.

In an article entitled, "The Obama Lie That Drove The Birther Movement," Jack Cashill says documents from Barack Obama Sr.'s immigration file, obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, justify Birther doubts about the story on which Barack Obama based his presidential campaign.

A memo dated Aug. 31, 1961, from William Wood of the Immigration and Naturalization Services, verifies that Barack Obama, Sr. fathered a son, Barack Obama II, who was born in Honolulu on Aug, 4, 1961, but it also verifies the fact that his parents never lived together -- as argued here for three years.
Wood notes that the child is "living with mother (she lives with her parents & subject resides at 1482 Alencastre St.)."  He adds that Obama's citizen spouse plans "to go to Washington State University next semester."

Note:  Stanley Ann and baby Barry were already long-gone and in Seattle, WA, when this note was penned.

By the way, this note also demonstrates that the "birth announcements" that say, "Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama, 6085 Kalanianaole Hwy..." are bogus.

Cashill also notes that immigration authorities certainly wondered about an Obama-Dunham marriage.  An April 1961 memo notes, "If his USC [United States Citizen] wife tries to petition for [Obama Sr.] make sure an investigation is conducted as to the bona-fide of the marriage."

There is no primary documentation of a marriage.  There is no marriage license.  There is no state-issued marriage certificate -- only a reference to a marriage in the Dunham/Obama divorce filing.

Obama even commented on the alleged marriage in "Dreams...":

"How and when the marriage occurred remains a bit murky, a bill of particulars that I have never quite had the courage to explore. There's no record of a real wedding, a cake, a ring, a giving away of the bride. No families were in attendance; it's not even clear that people back in Kansas were informed."

Wife Michelle even commented.  She described Stanley Ann as "very young and very single when she had him (Obama)."

Can a man who lies about the most basic facts of his life ever be trusted about anything?  We all know the answer.
Obama 1964 Divorce Papers - 13 Pages - Missing Pg 11  
Anna Makes It Official

Anna filed for divorce on January 27, 1964 and remarried one years late, in March 1965, when her son, Barry, was 4 years old.


Obama 1964 Divorce Papers on Scribd.com (13 pages).  There is no wedding license attached.


Investigators were only able to get to a copy of the sanitized divorce record.  It was an incomplete copy, with page 11 missing.  The scrubbed page could have been a copy of Obama's birth certificate.

Interestingly, when researchers ordered the file, "the clerk read the index information directly from the microfiche machine over the phone when the request was placed.  "14 pages total," she said, very clearly, repeating the answer when queried several more times on the page count.  When the document was received -- page 11 was missing -- bringing the total page count to 13."


Obama Sr. was never notified of the divorce.  The copy of the divorce papers was "returned to sender."


In Massachusetts you MUST file a Certified Original Marriage Cert before the judgment of divorce nisi enters or the divorce is final.
Also, In MA, divorce files are public record so anyone can read the entire file and yes, the marriage cert. would be there.
