Stanley Ann Dunham worked for Peter F. Geithner. The turbo-tax kids father Peter was the director of the Ford Foundation. Obama's mother Ann looked over the Ford micro finance program she was developing. Timothy spent most of his childhood in Zimbabwe,Zambia,India,Thailand and finished high school in Bangkok.
To think Obama' father worked for shell oil and his step father worked for Mobil oil! Peter F Geithner was also inter-woven with Robert Rubin , Lawrence Summers and Bob Schrank who was the author of Growing up Radical and Red in the USA!
1989 Obama took a summer intern job with Sidney&Austin; where Michelle Robinson his now wife and Bernadine Dohrn, William Ayers wife worked.
Why not she already wore the pants in the family. Michelle was his supervisor! 1991 Barack Hussein Obama filled out an application stating that was the only name he had ever gone by. this to become a member of the Illinois Bar Association. Obama claims he was a Professor.That's like Sanders of Kentucky fried chicken was really a Colonel.
I thought Tims father was Bob Crachit
Who believes for one second that Ann Dunham invented micro finance?
I thought Tim’s Father was a Reptillian..Geithner does not look human to me..his forehead, nose ears, eyes are lizard like..Just an observation.
what proof have you?
IMHO when people are excluded from meetings (family, corporate, congressional, political), they have effectively been "obaminated" from attending.
Obamination also applies to exclusion of public input into policies and agendas an administration mandates to avoid opposing or differing opinions.
The History of Microfinance
Thanks but I don’t see the words Dunham or Obama in that history? it would seem Ann Dunham did not develop micro finance since it originated in 1895.
Obama’s mother Ann looked over the Ford micro finance program she was developing...
Your right. She had nothing to do with the origins of microfinance but she is known as a pioneer in microfinance applications.
From an interesting profile at http://www.eastwestcenter.org/index.php?id=4229&print=1
Dunhams research and consulting work took her around the world. She became a consultant for the United States Agency for International Development on setting up village credit programs, then a Ford Foundation program officer in Jakarta championing womens issues, and later in 1986 she served in Pakistan as a consultant to the Asian Development Bank focusing on women’s welfare.
In 1988, she joined Bank Rakyat Indonesia, Indonesias oldest bank, and helped develop the worlds largest sustainable microfinance program, creating services like credit and savings for the poor, which enabled people from rural areas to engage in cottage industries and emerge from poverty.
As a pioneer in the field of microfinance, her anthropological research helped shape the policies set by the Bank. At present the Banks microfinance program is the world leader in terms of savers, with an average of 31 million members, according to MIX (Microfinance Information eXchange Inc.).
Ann was a reformer, noted Julia Suryakusuma, journalist and close friend of Dunham, during the EWC panel presentation. Whether you agreed with her or not she always did things with the intent of changing and improving the situation.
And how about the media, why don’t they report things like this...

Thanks for posting. Very interesting information (I’ve seen it before). BTTT!
It would be interesting to see what tentacles ,connections there are in higher levels at some of these media companies. (we already know GE)
I had seen pieces of it before too, but not - Bob Schrank who was the author of Growing up Radical and Red in the USA!
From his book:
"I was born two weeks before the Bolshevik Revolution into an immigrant family that was part of New York's large German socialist community." So begins Robert Schrank's compelling autobiography. In a down-to-earth, anecdotal style, he recounts a life rare in the breadth of its experience and the depth of its transformations. From Young Communist League member and union activist to management consultant for global corporations, Schrank has lived a life based on empathy and principles, and has been an activist in some of the major political and social upheavals of this century.
Schrank writes from the point of view of the rank and file, even when describing his role in the leadership of the New York State Machinists Union. A rebel in his own land, he was expelled three times from union office; and in a landmark First Amendment case ("Schrank vs. Brown") the State Supreme Court twice returned him to membership. Convinced by the early 1950s of the failure of socialism in the Soviet Union, he broke with the Party. Yet he remained faithful to the ideals of his radical upbringing, even as he joined the corporate world of his former enemies.
I don't know who this guy is---more radicalism ,union activist.
I read this as she was developing the program for the Ford Foundation internally (a new department program)
