The Father Lie
Last Tuesday (9/11/09), in his
speech to America's schoolchildren, Obama repeated one of his most
flagrant lies from "Dreams..."
In his televised speech to
the nation's schoolchildren, Obama said, "My father left my family when
I was 2 years old, and I was raised by a single mom who had to work and
who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn't always able to give
us the things that other kids had."
Senior left Hawaii on June 22, 1962,
to attend Harvard -- six weeks before Obama's first birthday.
However, Obama's mother, Stanley Ann, had long-since left Hawaii for Seattle.
We KNOW, according to her grade transcript
from the University of Washington, that Stanley Ann was in Seattle only 15 days
after Barack was born -- 10 months before Senior left Hawaii.
Senior didn't leave the family. The family left Senior. The
question is why?
The bigger question, of course, is where was
Stanley Ann in the first week of August, 1961?
There's another puzzle
buried in the above quote -- "I was raised by a single mom who had to
work and who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn't always able
to give us the things that other kids had."
Stanley Ann get
the money to move to Seattle? Where did Stanley Ann get the money to live
on Capital Hill
and maintain a home for herself and Barack? Where did Stanley Ann get the
money to attend the University of Washington? She wasn't working.
The Dunhams were living in expensive rental property in Hawaii.
Stanley was a retail salesman. Madeline was beginning her career at the
Bank of Hawaii (she would eventually become a bank vice-president).
We know Senior had no money. He was always complaining about
The Goatherd Lie
In Obama's famous DNC
Convention speech, Obama says, "My father was a foreign student, born and raised in a small village in Kenya. He grew up herding goats, went to school in a tin-roof shack. His father -- my grandfather -- was a cook, a domestic servant to the British."
Kezia, Obama Sr.'s first wife tells a story that puts Obama's account to
In 1955 Obama Sr. was 18 and working in an office in Nairobi, when he took Kezia from
her family at the age of 16. Her father was furious.
"He did not like Obama. My father and brothers came to
Nairobi to bring me back. They said I had to go back to school.
"When I wouldn't, they said they would never speak to me again.
"Barack was also worried about what his father would think because I was
so young, but he gave us his approval. Obama's father (often described
as poor) sent my mother and father
14 cows for my dowry.
Just how can a cook, a domestic servant to the British, provide a dowry
of 14 cattle for Senior's first wife? Also, Obama's father
had been working in a Nairobi office since the age 16, not herding
As an aside, can you imagine if a Republican
was running for president and it came out that his father had bought his
first wife for 14 cows???!!!Just wow!!
The Kennedy's Lie
Obama went on to tell his audience that the Kennedys -- Jack and
Bobby -- decided to do an airlift. They would bring some young
Africans over so that they could be educated and learn all about
America. His grandfather heard that call and sent his son, Barack
Obama, Sr., to America.
The problem with that
scenario is that, having been born in August 1961, the future
senator was not conceived until sometime in November 1960. So, if
his African grandfather heard words that "sent a shout across oceans,"
inspiring him to send his goat-herder son to America, it was not
Democrat Jack Kennedy he heard, or his brother Bobby, it was Republican
President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Actually, Senior was
an American sponsored scholarship in economics to the University of
at Manoa. He was selected by a former Kenyan cabinet minister, the late Tom Mboya, who was earmarked as
the successor to Jomo Kenyatta,
Kenya's first prime minister.
The presumption was that Senior would return to Africa
and use his "Western-honed skills in a new Kenya."
More Kennedy's Lies
The Obama campaign has made
political points over Hillary Clinton’s dishonest comments about
coming under "sniper fire" in Bosnia, but Obama also has some
opportunistic lies for which to account. The
Washington Post calls it "overstating," but make no mistake; this is
a flat-out lie: Obama Overstates Kennedys’ Role in Helping His Father.
Addressing civil rights activists in Selma, Ala., a year ago, Sen.
Barack Obama traced his "very existence" to the generosity of the
Kennedy family, which he said paid for his Kenyan father to travel to
America on a student scholarship and thus meet his Kansan mother.
The Camelot connection has become part of the mythology surrounding
Obama’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. After
Caroline Kennedy endorsed his candidacy in January, Newsweek commentator
Jonathan Alter reported that she had been struck by the extraordinary
way in which "history replays itself" and by how "two generations of two
families -- separated by distance, culture and wealth -- can intersect
in strange and wonderful ways."
It is a touching story -- but the key details are either untrue or
Contrary to Obama’s claims in speeches in January at American University
and in Selma last year, the Kennedy family did not provide the funding
for a September 1959 airlift of 81 Kenyan students to the United States
that included Obama’s father. According to historical records and
interviews with participants, the Kennedys were first approached for
support for the program nearly a year later, in July 1960. The
family responded with a $100,000 donation, most of which went to pay for
a second airlift in September 1960.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton acknowledged yesterday that the senator from
Illinois had erred in crediting the Kennedy family with a role in his
father’s arrival in the United States. He said the Kennedy
involvement in the Kenya student program apparently "started 48 years
ago, not 49 years ago as Obama has mistakenly suggested in the past."
Following Obama's recent dumb comment about small town Americans
clinging to guns and religion, he defended himself by claiming that the
notion of elitist is absurd because of his poor upbringing. He
said that his mother was on food stamps, so how could he be an
elitist in his upbringing?
Here is the Time article written by Joe Klein in 2006, long before
Obama decided to run for president. Back then, he was seen as the
rising star within Democratic Party, and he didn't worry about critics
breathing down his neck.
Here is the key excerpt from the article:
"For example, I was going to a fancy prep school, and my mother was
on food stamps while she was getting her Ph.D."
That is what Obama said. He went to a fancy private school that
today costs $25,000 per, and up -- and his mother was studying for a Ph.D.
What Obama doesn't tell you is that he was in Punahou School in the 70's
and mom studied for her Ph. D. in the early 90's. Here is the
In 1992 she earned a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of
Hawai'i with a dissertation titled Peasant blacksmithing in Indonesia:
Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds.
That was thirteen years after Obama graduated from his "fancy prep
Obama consciously conflated these two events to produce a defense he
knows to be untrue.
"I'm not running because I'm trying to fulfill some long-held plan."
Iis Darmawan, 63, Obama's teacher in 1970, remembers him as an
exceptionally tall and curly haired child who quickly picked up the local
language and had sharp math skills. "He wrote an essay titled, 'I
Want To Become President,'" the teacher said.
Maya, has also
said, "There was always a joke between my mom and Barack that he
would be the first black president."
David B. Wilkins , the Kirkland and Ellis professor of law,
said he advised
Obama to become a Supreme Court Clerk. "Obama recognized the honor in
pursuing that post," Wilkins said, but quickly added that he wasn’t interested.
“He said that he wanted to write a book about his life and his father, go back
to Chicago, get back into the community, and run for office there. He knew
exactly what he wanted and went about getting it done,” Wilkins said.
In 1992, Obama's brother-in-law, Craig Robinson pulled him aside and
asked about his plans. "He said, 'I think I’d like to teach at
some point in time, and maybe run for public office,'" recalls Robinson,
who assumed Senator Obama meant he’d like to run for city alderman.
"He said no -- at some point he’d like to run for the U.S. Senate.
And then he said, 'Possibly even run for President at some point.'
And I was like, 'Okay, but don’t say that to my Aunt Gracie.' I
was protecting him from saying something that might embarrass him."
In 1993, Obama began teaching at the
University of Chicago Law School, where he declined to pursue
a tenure-track post, hoping to save time for politics.
The one thread, that remains consistent, throughout Obama's life, is his
teacher's, mentor's and friend's recollection of Obama's single-minded pursuit of
high political office.
Never Happened Lie
Obama's new TV ad
he "worked his way" through college and law school. His campaign
says he had two summer jobs.
Obama’s latest ad repeats an often-stated claim, saying he "worked his
way through college and Harvard Law." We know Obama took out loans
to get himself through school. But the campaign provided
information on just two jobs Obama had in those years, and they were
both in the summer.
The ad begins with the announcer telling us that Obama "worked his way
through college and Harvard Law." Actually, Obama took out loans
to get himself through college, as we heard in a 60-second ad his
campaign began running last month. We don't know how much
assistance his family provided.
But "worked his way" through college and law school? The only
back-up the campaign provided for this claim was a quote from Obama's
book "Dreams from My Father" having to do with a construction job he had
one summer while he was in college, and an article mentioning his job as
a summer associate one year at a big Chicago law firm (where he first
met Bernadine Dohrn, the terrorist). We asked campaign spokesman
Tommy Vietor if Obama held jobs during the school year, or other summer
jobs, but he said only, "He had the two jobs I told you about."
Unless Obama had a good bit more employment than his spokesman was able
to describe for us, it's a real stretch to claim he "worked his way"
Senior Served In World War II
In June 2008, Obama Falsely Claimed
His Father Served In World War II:
Obama: "My father served in World War II, and when he came home, he got
the services that he needed." (Sen. Barack Obama, Remarks At The NALEO
Conference, Washington, DC, 6/28/08) -- source:
Of course, if Senior did serve, he served as the
little drummer boy, since he would have been 9 years old at the end of

Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama’s father) was born on 4/4/1936, and

WW II started, and 9 years old when it ended.
(Obama’s step father) was born in 1935, and died on 3/2/1987 at the
age of 52. He was 4 years old when WW II started, and 10 years
old when it ended.

Life Magazine Lie
In his memoir,
Obama writes of one of the watershed moments of his racial awareness --
time and again in remarkable detail. It is a story about a Life magazine article that influenced him.
The report was about a
black man who tried to bleach his skin white. When Obama was told
no such article could be found in Life, he says "it might have been
He is 9 years old, living in Indonesia, where he and his mother moved
with her new husband, Lolo Soetoro, a few years earlier. One day
while visiting his mother, who was working at the U.S. Embassy in
Jakarta, Obama passed time by looking through several issues of Life
magazine. He came across an article that he later
describe as feeling like an "ambush attack."
The article included photos of a black man who had destroyed his skin
with powerful chemical lighteners that promised to make him white.
Instead, the chemicals had peeled off much of his skin, leaving him sad
and scarred, Obama recalled.
"I imagine other black children, then and now, undergoing similar
moments of revelation," Obama wrote of the magazine photos in "Dreams."
no such photo exists, according to historians at the magazine.
No such photos, no such article. When asked about the discrepancy,
Obama said in a recent interview, "It might have been an Ebony or it
might have been ... who knows what it was?" (At the request of the
Tribune, archivists at Ebony searched their catalogue of past articles,
none of which matched what Obama recalled.)
In fact, it is surprising, based on interviews with more than two dozen
people who knew Obama during his nearly four years in Indonesia, that it
would take a photograph in a magazine to make him conscious of the fact
that some people might treat him differently in part because of the
color of his skin.
In The Sky
Evidence continues to mount that Barack Obama had
substantial help from Bill Ayers in the creation of his 1995 book,
Dreams From My Father, a book that Time Magazine has called "the
best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician." The
evidence falls into five general categories, here summarized.
The discovery of new matching nautical metaphors from both Ayers and
Obama that almost assuredly came from the same source: Ayers, a former
The discovery of a Bill Ayers' essay on memoir writing, whose postmodern
themes and phrases are echoed throughout Dreams.
A newly discovered book chapter from 1990 that shows clearly and
painfully the limits of Obama's prose style the year he received a
contract to write Dreams.
The revelation by radical Islamicist Rashid Khalidi that Ayers made his
"dining room table" available for neighborhood writers who needed help.
A refined timeline that shows Ayers had the means, the motive and the
time to help Obama when he needed it most.
lays it all out in great detail . . . and contends that
this essay, published by the radical Students Agaianst Militarism
(SAM), represents the single best example of Obama’s native writing
skills yet unearthed.
Cashill says it should put an end to the
charade that Barack Obama wrote his 1995 memoir "Dreams From My Father"
unaided, but it probably won’t. The literary left has committed
itself to Obama’s genius.
"He wrote it himself," esteemed British
author Jonathan Raban wrote of Obama’s Dreams just last week in The Wall
Street Journal. "Every sentence has its own graceful cadence.
He could just as easily have been a novelist as a politician."
"Breaking The War Mentality" every sentence clunks. Obama not only
makes scores of basic grammatical errors -- these, with practice, he
might have learned to correct -- but he also fails to turn one lively or
concise or even interesting phrase in the entire essay.
Barack Obama announced last Thursday that he has begun a web site to
states. "To be sure, some of what is said about Obama is
exaggerated or untrue. I refuse to publish a great deal of
anti-Obama material that crosses my desk. But much of what Obama
characterizes as 'rumor' is true. Obama has been lying about his
family and his religious past his entire life. This time he will
not get away with his lies."
"Obama says in large print and underlines 'Senator Obama has never been
a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian," Martin
states. "Two thirds of that claim are bald-faced lies.
The last third, about Obama's Christianity, has never been adequately
documented. Most people who are baptized have a Baptismal
Certificate. I call on Obama to release his Baptismal Certificate
or record. Many Americans do not believe that sitting in the pews,
listening to Reverend Jeremiah Wright's racist jeremiads for two decades
qualifies anyone to be a 'committed Christian.'" Committed racist
and America-hater, maybe.
I have corresponded with three Chicago-area
journalists, inquiring about a baptism. There is NO record,
anywhere, of Barack Hussein Obama ever having been baptized. He is
only a Christian because he says so -- although I don't believe the
Trinity UCC church is a Christian Church -- it is a Black African church
and their website is very clear about that. From the Trinity UCC
statement of Trinity United Church of Christ is based upon the
systematized liberation theology that started in 1969 with the
publication of Dr. James Cone’s book, Black Power and Black Theology.
Black theology is one of the many theologies in the Americas that became
popular during the liberation theology movement. They include Hispanic
theology, Native American theology, Asian theology and Womanist
That stuff isn't theology -- it's politics!
In Levittown, Penn., today, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, was asked
about his church’s magazine giving an award to Rev. Louis Farrakhan.
"This was done by a magazine that was connected to the church," Obama
explained. "I would have never done it. It was primary
focused on the rehabilitation work that they do for ex-offenders in
Chicago. That doesn’t excuse it, that just explains it."
The first time Obama said this, I could believe he was misinformed
[update: indeed, the first time he said this, he only said he "assumed"
this was the reason]. The second time, perhaps that he was caught
off guard and didn’t have his story straight. Now, I can only
conclude that he is intentionally choosing to blatantly lie about this,
hoping that no one will notice and call him on it.
Let’s recall the facts: The magazine explicitly explained in the video
it prepared for the banquet at which Farrakhan was honored that it was
honoring Farrakhan for his purported dedication to "truth, education,
and leadership." [Surprise, surprise, the video seems to have been
pulled from YouTube.] Obama's spiritual mentor Rev. Wright,
meanwhile praised Farrakhan in the magazine for his "astounding and
eye-opening" analysis of the "racial ills of this nation," a
"perspective" that is "helpful and honest." I even got hold of the
interview the magazine did with Farrakhan. No mention was made in
any of these sources of "rehabilitation work for ex-offenders."
Responding to questions about his intent to serve out the six year
senate term, Obama says, in
that he will not run for the presidency in four years.
Notice: The video has disappeared. Using WayBackMachine, I found
two links -- both played empty videos -- a lot of stuff is being
scrubbed from the web.
Here is what he said in the video:
"I think I've been very clear. Ah-ah-mumble-mumble, there's
a presidential election in four years. I'm not running for
president in four years."
Here is a backup story -- during a meeting with reporters at his Illinois
campaign headquarters after his election to the U.S. Senate,
he ridiculed as "a silly question"
whether he would run for president or vice president before his term
ends in 2011. "I’ve never worked in Washington," he said. "I can
unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four
years, and my entire focus is making sure that I’m the best possible
senator on behalf of the people of Illinois."

said, 'There's been enormous speculation about your political future.

you get asked enough, sooner or later you get weary and you start
looking for new ways of saying things. But my thinking has not

Delusions Or Lies
says world leaders "see me as a conservative."
He may be
regarded as a Communist trying to nationalize health care by his
fiercest detractors at home, but other world leaders see him as a
conservative, he declared on Sunday.
"I can't tell you how many
foreign leaders, who are heads of centre-right governments, say to me 'I
don't understand why people would call you socialist, in my country you
would be considered a conservative'," Obama told CNN.
"I can't tell you how many foreign
leaders..." -- that's because the notion is ridiculous. He's just
making up stories again. It's the one thing that Obama does very
"There are times where I've fallen off the wagon," the president-elect
said when asked in a broadcast interview whether he has kicked the
"I've done a terrific job, under the circumstances, of making myself
much healthier," he said. "And I think that you will not see any
violations of these rules in the White House," he said on Sunday's "Meet
the Press" on NBC.
Obama told the magazine Men's Health in an interview for its November
issue that he wished he had more time for staying fit and that he still
occasionally smoked a cigarette.
Obama said in that interview that he had bummed a cigarette a couple of
times during the campaign. "But I figure, seeing as I'm running
for president, I need to cut myself a little slack," he said.
Operative words -- "...you will not see
any violations of these rules in the White House." -- not quite the same
as "I won't smoke..." If only Obama had as much personal character
as his personal arrogance.
What Obama Has Said about His Own Birth
In September 2009, Obama addressed the nation's schoolchildren
writ large, an innovation that struck many on the right as a wee bit too
Big-Brotherly. In the talk, Obama asked America's students to take
personal responsibility. That was all well enough.
in the media hubbub, however, was his take on why this could be
difficult for some students. "I get it," he told the kiddies.
"I know what that's like. My father left my family when I was two
years old, and I was raised by a single mother."
In his 1995
memoir Dreams from My Father, Obama made the same claim. "He had
left Hawaii back in 1963," he wrote of Obama Sr., "when I was only two
When Obama wrote this in Dreams, he may have been
relating what he had himself been told. By 2009, he knew better, but so
vested was he in the story, and so useful had it been in his rise, that
he continued to dissemble, even before millions of schoolchildren.
Matt Schneider describes an interview with
Diane Sawyer, in which Obama spoke confidently about the mission in
Libya, while also taking a moment to make light of some recent criticism
he's received. Obama predicted that Gaddafi knows "the noose is
tightening" and that the people of Libya will soon be free from being
under his control.
Obama elaborated on the rationale behind
persuading the international community to handle Libya:
that it is precisely because we organized an international coalition, we
don't have to shoulder this entire burden. I mean, the fact of the
matter is it's not going to be U.S. planes that are maintaining the
no-fly zone. It is a NATO operation . . . what I didn't want was a
situation in which everybody else was a free rider on our U.S. military.
I wanted to make sure you guys say this is important to you, make sure
that you are actually putting some skin in the game.
Additionally, Obama reveals to Sawyer:
I do a lot of praying.
Absolutely. Every night, right before I go to bed. You know, and I am
praying that -- I'm making the best possible decisions, and that I've
got the strength to serve the American people well. And frankly as
President of the United States, you know, your responsibilities extend
beyond beyond our borders. And these decisions are difficult.
Finally, Obama addresses the fact that many criticized him for taking a
few minutes to complete a NCAA basketball bracket. Obama humorously
responds, "obviously, I hadn't been spending that much time studying it
since I don't have anybody in the Final Four."
I don't know whether Obama prays, or
not, but it just seems natural to archive this under "Lies."
can believe Obama's praying he doesn't get found out, but I just want to
know if Obama's kneeling on a rug and facing east when he does it?

the Irish know it. They’re watching, bemused, as the most powerful
man in the world comes to visit their President and Taoiseach, then
visit Moneygall, home of his great-great-great grandfather. They
know it’s not their smiling eyes he’s visiting for -- but for the
35,975,855 Americans who claim Irish roots. That’s a sizeable
chunk of the electorate and geographically strategic, too:
Irish-Americans are numerous in precisely those states, like Ohio and
Pennsylvania, that often prove to be decisive during presidential
Obama’s O’Bama act will strike Irish Catholics on both
sides of the Atlantic as highly hypocritical not only because, as his
autobiography "Dreams from My Father" shows, his Kenyan heritage, not
the Irish one, shaped his vision; but also because during his reign,
Obama has pursued an anti-Catholic agenda that has been unapologetically
pro-abortion and pro stem cell research. His stand on the death
penalty is no different from previous administrations, and his U-turn on
Guantanamo Bay betrays a disregard for human life that offends Catholic
teaching. For Catholic Ireland, his trip is not so much the return
of the Prodigal Son as the photo-op of the wayward cousin.
contrast Obama’s electioneering provides to the Queen’s heartfelt and
dignified state visit to Ireland last week. Hers was a profoundly
moving gesture of reconciliation: after so much blood was spilled on
both sides -- not least that of one of her dearest relatives, Lord
Mountbatten -- Queen Elizabeth was making an effort to bridge two
countries that for hundreds of years have been at war. Every
ceremony, every state occasion was steeped in genuine emotion.

spin it as a PR triumph capable of regenerating their tourism rather
than as a politically momentous occasion; the Irish Americans will quite
rightly view the trip as a desperate, last ditch appeal to them.

ABC's Mary Bruce (@marykbruce)
reports that with Father's Day just around the corner on June 19th,
Obama has penned an essay detailing how the absence of his own father
inspired him to be a better parent, saying "I always felt his absence."
"I grew up without a father
around. I have certain memories of him taking me to my first jazz
concert and giving me my first basketball as a Christmas present.

explains that while he and his sister were "lucky enough to be raised by
a wonderful mother and caring grandparents," he always felt his father's
absence and "wondered what it would have been like if he had been a
greater presence in my life."
"I still do. It is
perhaps for this reason that fatherhood is so important to me, and why
I've tried so hard to be there for my own children," Obama writes.
Obama admits that he hasn't
always been the perfect father and that time away from his family has
been difficult, especially during the rigors of the 2008 campaign.
"That's not to say I've always been a perfect dad. I haven't. When
Malia and Sasha were younger, work kept me away from home more than it
should have. At times, the burden of raising our two daughters has
fallen too heavily on Michelle. During the campaign, not a day
went by that I didn't wish I could spend more time with the family I
love more than anything else in the world," he writes.
