Fever Dreams From My Real Father #4: Family Portraits
Most photo comparisons of Obama and Davis involve pictures where the two men are posed similarly; when they're not, you get results like the one seen above. I, and I daresay most people, don't see any greater resemblance between the two men than would be present between *any* two random African American men. (The absurd 'Malcolm X as father' claim at least has the benefit of the two men looking slightly similar.)
Still, if someone is primed to see a resemblance, I don't really feel like wasting words trying to convince them otherwise, any more than I'd be interested in debating a viewer of Gilbert's Paul McCartney Really Is Dead movie that the secret messages they hear in backwards lyrics are just pareidolia.
For instance, does Obama look that much more like Frank Marshall Davis than he does, say, another famous Davis?
Still, maybe even the true believers can consider this: Frank Marshall Davis and Barack Obama Sr. each had other children. More to the point, each had a mixed-race son named Mark. Mark Davis was the son of Frank Marshall Davis and his second wife, Helen Canfield. Mark Ndesandjo was the son of Barack Obama Sr. and his wife Ruth Ndesandjo. Below is a picture of Obama with the two Marks:
You can decide for yourself which Mark the President bears a stronger resemblance to, and who you think is more likely to be his half-brother.
I’ve never thought Obama bore any resemblance at all to Frank Davis but it seems beyond dispute that Davis had a great deal of influence on young Barry. It’s that influence that should be the story not all this “who’s your daddy” nonsense. Perhaps that’s the real motivation behind Joel Gilberts work
This is pretty ho hum if you ask me. The criticism will have to get better than this if it’s going to be interesting.
Typical liberal response. I’ve already seen way too much with even taking Gilbert’s work into account to know that he’s another conman with a shady and unclear background with a shady past and shady connections. The guy isn’t transpsarent, lies continuously, doesnt keep promises, cheats as long as the end justifies the means (bypasses Congressional methods to get what he wants), has radical and dangerous political ideologies, denounces the US as a Chrustian nation, embraces Islam and seems to be in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood, has horrible domestic and foreign policies, is trying to change the 1st and 2nd amendments but tries to conceal the fact, etc...I could go on all day with specifics but I have a job to do.
Bottom line is you can try to cast doubt all you want just as well as the next attorney but your end game is apparent and is going to be ineffective here.
The problem with this whole “Frank Marshall Davis is Barack Obama Jr father” is that there are major discrepancies...
First...George Obama, Barack Jr’s half-brother, look so much alike. Since Stanley Ann Dunham was not both their mothers, the father of both had to be Barack Sr. This totally rules out the FM Davis-Obama Father theory
Second....this writer/investigator is also an Anti-Birther (I have listened to his interviews)....and agrees with the MSM and GOP Media with the attacks on those who truly are investigating Obama Eligibility, and want the real Obama Hawaii Birth Certificate released. And, to even prove that FM Davis is Obama’s father....the REAL OBAMA HAWAII BIRTH CERTIFICATE would need to be released
This FM David-Obama Father is nothing more than an Anti-Birther ruse, IMO
What neighbors? Gilbert drops this tidbit, but never identifies the neighbors, or quotes what they had to say, or how they would know that a visiting 10-year-old was a young Obama. There's no evidence to support this testimony of these anonymous "neighbors," not on Gilbert's website and certainly not in his film.
He knew Stan real well, said Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a close friend of Mr Davis Theyd play Scrabble and drink and crack jokes and crack jokes and argue. Frank always won and he was always very braggadocio about it too. It was all jocular. They didnt get polluted drunk. And Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together.
While his mother was in Indonesia during part of his teenage years, Mr Obama lived with his white grandparents. Mrs Weatherly-Williams said that the poet was first introduced to the future Democratic presidential candidate in 1970 at the age of 10.
Stan had been promising to bring Barry by because we all had that in common - Franks kids were half-white, Stans grandson was half-black and my son was half-black. We all had that in common and we all really enjoyed it. We got a real kick out of reality.
