A Drunk and a Bigot (Obama's father was a muslim polygamist)
London Evening Standard ^ | 1/27/07

EXCERPT:

Yet an investigation by The Mail on Sunday has revealed that, for all Mr Obama's reputation for straight talking and the compelling narrative of his recollections, they are largely myth.

We have discovered that his father was not just a deeply flawed individual but an abusive bigamist and an egomaniac, whose life was ruined not by racism or corruption but his own weaknesses.

And, devastatingly, the testimony has come from Mr Obama's own relatives and family friends.

...

Grandfather Obama sent his son to a missionary school but after completing his education, the youth could find little work except goatherding in his remote village of Nyangoma Kogela, in the roadless hills of Western Kenya.

At 18, he married a girl called Kezia. But Obama Snr was more interested in politics and economics than his family and his political leanings had been brought to the notice of leaders of the Kenyan Independence movement.

He was put forward for an American-sponsored scholarship in economics, with the idea being that he would eventually use his Western-honed skills in the new Kenya. At the age of 23 he headed for university in Hawaii, leaving behind the pregnant Kezia and their baby son.

Relatives say he was already a slick womaniser and, once in Honolulu, he promptly persuaded a fellow student called Ann - a naive 18-year-old white girl - to marry him. Barack Jnr was born in August, 1961.

Two years later, Obama Snr was on the move again. He was accepted at Harvard, and left his little boy and wife behind when he moved to the exclusive east coast university.

At the time, Ann explained to their son that his father had gone because his meagre stipend would not support the family if they lived together. But finance was the least of her worries.

Mr Obama Jnr claims that racism on both sides of the family destroyed the marriage between his mother and father.

In his book, he says that Ann's mother, who went by the nickname Tut, did not want a black son-in-law, and Obama Snr's father 'didn't want the Obama blood sullied by a white woman'.

In fact Ann divorced her husband after she discovered his bigamous double life. She remarried and moved to Indonesia with young Barack and her new husband, an oil company manager.

Obama Snr was forced to return to Kenya, where he fathered two more children by Kezia. He was eventually hired as a top civil servant in the fledgling government of Jomo Kenyatta - and married yet again.

Now prosperous with a flashy car and good salary, his third wife was an American-born teacher called Ruth, whom he had met at Harvard while still legally married to both Kezia and Ann, and who followed him to Africa.

A relative of Mr Obama says: "We told him[Barack] how his father would still go to Kezia and it was during these visits that she became pregnant with two more children. He also had two children with Ruth."

It is alleged that Ruth finally left him after he repeatedly flew into whisky-fuelled rages, beating her brutally.

Friends say drinking blighted his life - he lost both his legs while driving under the influence and also lost his job.

However, this was no bar to his womanising: he sired a son, his eighth child, by yet another woman and continued to come home drunk.

He was about to marry her when he finally died in yet another drunken crash when Obama was 21.

Mr Obama's 40-year-old cousin Said Hussein Obama told The Mail on Sunday: "Clearly, Barack has been very deeply affected by what he has learned about his father, who was my father's older brother.

"You have to remember that his father was an African and in Africa, polygamy is part of life."

Only white people can be racist...

More excerpts:

Ochieng recalls how, after sitting up all night drinking Black Label whisky at Nairobi's famous Stanley Hotel, Obama Snr would fly into rages if Ruth asked where he had been.

Ochieng remonstrated with his friend, saying: "You bring a woman from far away and you reduce her to pulp. That is not our way."

But it was to no avail. Ruth sued for divorce after her husband administered brutal beatings.

Of course, infidelity, adultery are a cultural thing. We must apologize for our lack of tolerance and understanding.

Now you folks mark my words and pay close attention here:

Before the week is out, IF this story grows legs, and starts being talked about, the 'Rats or their media mouthpieces will be found suddenly talking about the fact that Ronald Reagan's father (Jack Reagan) was not the best father and had problems with alcohol.

IOW, they will do ANYTHING to try and deflect attention away from Senator EmptySuit.

I predict that this will only be a resume enhancement.

The new party line will be "He rose from the ashes of a dysfunctional home life and an abusive father and...yadayadayada ad nausum."

Does this mean that Hillary recognizes Obama as one of those "evil and bad men" she laughed about last week?

Just remember, who was the first one that brought up "Willie Horton" againts Dukakis? Al Gore.

The dirt on Obama will come straight from Hillary's people, bank on it.

Maybe it's just me, but I find it creepy that he has a first cousin by the name of Said Hussein. With that many half siblings running around, probably in the third world, I think very intense security checks need to be run on them. National security indeed.

Look guys- we need to worry about Hillary Hussein Clinton. She has a 20-25% lead over Obama, including among blacks. Obama will not be the nominee and all this lather we're working ourselves into over Obama's middle name or what kind of kindergarten he attended is just carrying water for Hillary.

Quite apart from the fact that it seems childish to be worrying about this stuff in a presidential race. If you want to bash Obama, try his plan for socialized health care or something important like that. This middle name and early childhood stuff is beneath conseravatives- we should be eager to debate the merits of issues because the truth is on our side.

It's more than his middle name - Obama's dad was a central theme of two memoirs, and Obama lied about him in both. His screwed up parents are also the source of his marxist politics.

The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree on this one, so it pays to find out exactly what kind of a tree he came from.

To criticize a person's parents, something over which they have no control, is really sad.

I actually pity him some for his bad parentage. But we're not the ones who made parentage an issue here - Obama did.

Obama wrote two lengthy drivelling marxist-laden memoirs about his parents and how they shaped his life. He traces his political views to them, and he trumps out his dad all the time to prove that he's a perpetually oppressed and victimized racial minority.

Now it turns out that his parents - both of them - were scumbags, and Obama lied in his portrayal of them. That makes it fair game. Remember: the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Oh you can bet on that my FRiend!

And I hope Mrs. Bill Clinton will remember that he (or she) who 'lives by the dirt, will die by the dirt'. ;)
