The strange silence of Barack Obama’s grandmother
Contrarian Commentary ^ | 10/22/08 | Andy Martin

Posted on 10/22/2008 5:18:40 AM PDT by mn-bush-man

Andy Martin’s investigative team digs for the truth. Is Obama using his ill grandmother as a beard to conceal his true concern: a release of the original copy of his 1961 birth certificate?

The Obama investigation in Hawai’i, Part Two Obama’s Hawai’i Years: The truth finally revealed Obama’s tortured family life and secrets ANDY MARTIN Executive Editor ContrarianCommentary.com

“Factually Correct, Not Politically Correct”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

“OPERATION ALOHA OBAMA” BEGINS TO YIELD UP THE TRUTH ABOUT BARACK OBAMA

PART TWO: OBAMA’S FAMILY AND WHAT IT TELLS US ABOUT HIM (THE DOG THAT DOESN’T BARK)

HIS GRANDMOTHER’S STRANGE SILENCE IS THE KEY TO UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF BARACK OBAMA

(HONOLULU, HI)(October 21, 2008) Where his white grandmother is concerned, Barack Obama talks the talk but he does not walk the walk. The presence of our investigative team in Honolulu, the first media investigation of Obama’s Hawai’i heritage in the entire presidential campaign, triggered panic attacks in Obama’s organization. Obama has suspended his campaign and plans to arrive in Hawai’i Thursday in a desperate attempt to blunt the thrust of our reporting.

We have called all of this rigmarole a “High Noon”-style Hollywood drama with good reason. By some strange karma, after our team landed in Honolulu to investigate Obama, he decided to make an emergency trip to the island, as if grasping one final time to control the inner pain and secrets that have defined his life.

With all due respect to the senator, while his grandmother may be ill, the claim that he is returning to Hawaii and suspending his campaign on that basis is a ruse to cover the more serious question of how he is trying to deal with the issues we have uncovered.

In this three-part series we strip away the media halo to expose who Barack Obama really is, and who he is not (Part One has been postponed to October 27th).

When we board the airliner for the mainland, the secrets that Barack Obama and his family have maintained for almost a half a century will be no more. The truth will have finally been brought to the surface.

Granny Dunham, Madelyn Dunham, Obama’s white grandmother, was the key to triggering our search for the secret truths.

Ironically, my role as an investigator will also prove to have been transformed into that of a liberator. Barack Obama will be “free at last.”

My book, Obama: The Man Behind the Mask, closes at pp. 415-417 with criticism of Obama’s false claim that he comes from a family of “strong values.” Rather than a strong family, Obama comes from a dysfunctional family that has scarred his existence to this day. The key to understanding this dysfunction is Obama’s grandmother.

When Newsmax.com and I focused attention on Obama’s “imprisoned white grandmother” in 2007, Obama unleashed his tax-exempt attack dogs to smear both me and Newsmax. One of my readers recently suggested that when it comes to bombing runs, “The flack is heaviest over the target.” That has been the case with reporting about Obama’s last white relative. Obama has defended Festung Obama with every device at his disposal.

In this column I try to explain the peculiarities of the Obama-Dunham family in terms that anyone and everyone can understand: family photos, meetings, exchanges. The day-to-day existence of loving relationships, and the significance of their absence.

This is not a happy column. One of my readers today said she “hated” Obama. I responded I had no hatred for Obama. I certainly have no hatred for the tens of millions of Americans who will be disappointed by the revelation of Obama’s charade. Still, the truth must be known so that people can make an informed, if ultimately unfortunate and probably emotional, decision on whom they want as a leader.

Obama’s grandmother has lived in the same apartment for approximately forty years. Last summer at the Saddleback Forum, she was described by her grandson as a “very grounded, common-sense, no-fuss, no-frills kind of person.” Indeed she is. Obama told David Letterman that his grandmother was as “sharp as a tack.” Ouch.

Obama’s grandmother still calls him “Barry.” With good reason she has never accepted the African mumbo-jumbo that Obama adopted as a teenager, when he transformed himself from Barry into Barack. Grandmother still knows him by his real name. There is no pretense in her. It must be unnerving to the “Big Man” to be called by his little name.

But now the strange part. The peculiar part is made even more so by the fact that in a one-in-a-million happenstance, our long-planned investigation in Hawai’i coincided with and may have been triggered by Obama’s sudden and seemingly desperate return to his home town to staunch the impact of our inquiries.

The result of Obama’s sudden change of plans: His picture hugging his grandmother appeared on the front page of both local newspapers today (October 21st).

The picture was almost thirty years old.

The Honolulu Advertiser also used a picture of Obama and his grandmother that was 25 years old. The 25 year-old snapshot was provided to the media by Obama himself. He has nothing more current of the two of them together.

Obama professes absolute love and devotion to his “Toot,” but the two have apparently not taken a picture together in a quarter of a century. That’s a very bizarre presidential photo album.

I accept that Mrs. Dunham is in bad health. My own mother is 91, and I know that with age comes infirmity. I also recognize that osteoporosis is a serious illness among the elderly, and especially among elderly women. But I am not aware that osteoporosis has ever been a pretext to live life as a recluse and to decline to participate in the ebb and flow of routine family activity such as picture-taking. What about the great-granddaughters? Do they have any pictures with their great-grandmother? None have surfaced.

Why has Madelyn Dunham not appeared in a photograph with her grandson for a quarter century?

There is a mutual anger and hostility and frustration between them. Almost all of us have similar difficulties in our lives. We may love, but still be estranged from a parent or sibling. We may have deep devotion to a relative, but still disapprove of their lifestyle or choices.

Obama’s family has been torn apart by the lies they could not confront and the truths they could not accept.

Granny Dunham is the keeper of the family secrets. And she does not approve of those secrets. That is why there has been a chasm between Obama and the first two women in his life, his mother and his grandmother. They nurtured him and, in his eyes, they also devastated him. They made him a strong young man, and then they sapped his psyche.

Obama has constructed an elaborate facade, a Maginot Line of emotional defenses, a “Mask,” to cover his sense of helplessness and powerlessness. His “cool” demeanor is a function of an attempt to insulate himself from his own emotions, confusion and sense of inadequacy, instead of being a demonstration of genuine self-confidence.

From the two women who nurtured Barack Obama, and in his eyes, ultimately betrayed him, we turn to the current family situation.

Obama has two daughters. He has a wife. Does he ever. But when he went to visit his grandmother a few months ago, he went alone. Has anyone ever heard of a family where the great-granddaughters do not visit their great-grandmother? And are not full of excitement at doing so?

Osteo may be a painful illness but it is not a totally disabling one. Obama’s own campaign advertisement shows his grandmother’s voice is strong. Why wouldn’t Barack want to bring his daughters to visit their great-grandmother? Race, perhaps?

Other than the single published visitation, there is no evidence that the Obama family spent any significant time with their grandmother/great grandmother. Does Michelle not want her daughters to know their true heritage? Is she still militant inside, while maintaining her own mask of friendliness on the outside?

Once again, we see in Barack Obama the pattern of a dysfunctional family tearing itself apart by struggles over identity and continuity, all of which now extend into the second generation.

Obama claims his grandmother is sufficiently ill to suspend his campaign. Are his daughters joining him in Honolulu if their great-grandma is so ill? Surely a gravely ill relative would be a basis to miss a day or two of school.

The issue of his grandmother’s osteoporosis has been used by Obama as a pretext for Madelyn Dunham’s reclusiveness over the decades. But even someone suffering from Osteo can maintain a normal life. The Kennedy Family exhibited Rose Kennedy well into her nineties, long after she was restricted to a wheelchair. Why is Obama’s grandmother so unwilling to be photographed or appear in public with her grandson? Illness? Nonsense.

I always return, as anyone with a normal family would, to the absence of any photograph between the pair during the past quarter century. That is a very strange state of affairs. Barack Obama is running for president of the United States and the local newspapers in his home town are using high school and college graduation pictures to depict him with his last surviving Hawai’i relative. Yes, there is both love and estrangement between Obama and his grandmother.

What is the basis of this chasm? Why did I find this silence so significant that it triggered a deeper investigation?

Here are my conclusions. When Obama learned the secret truths about his life he was devastated. I am still not sure whether he learned them from his mother or his grandmother. But the shock of the secret truths stunned him. He is still, today, in a state of shock, a state of permanent denial, a state of complete shut down and inability to deal with the truth. “Cool” covers pain.

Obama’s shock at the revelation of his family secrets triggered anger. That anger is still there today. The anger was there when he dealt with the loss of his mother. The anger does not manifest itself in physical terms, but rather in deep emotional estrangement and insularity from those closest to him who he feels betrayed him.

Obama’s grandmother has responded in her own Midwestern way for the past quarter century. She has not appeared in public with her grandson. She is a phantom. The lack of any appearance is an ultimate form of denial and rejection. Who among us would want to endure a parent or grandparent who refused to appear in a family photograph? Madelyn Dunham was approximately sixty years old when she was last photographed. She certainly showed no signs of the immobility then that Obama attributes to her today. Twenty-five years is a long time between family pictures. The absence is telling, devastating, a state of permanent standoff and denial, a modern indication of significance comparable to Sherlock Holmes’ dog that didn’t bark.

Wednesday we will finally disclose the secret truths.

I want to stress that we are still investigating, still digging, still searching for every scrap of evidence we can find. But we are absolutely convinced we have found the larger truth that has defined Barack Obama’s adult life. We have found why Obama can manifest such . an extreme degree of ambivalence, expressing pride and affection for his grandmother on one hand, and casual disinterest on the other. We have found the secret truths about Barack Obama.

Barry seems to have absolutely no one around him. He’s like a phantom that floats through life, apparently, never being seen with any family, friends, university companions, nobody at all. It’s been 20 years since his last photo with dear Granny? More and more bizarre by the minute.

It’s a very wordy article just to make the point about lacking photographs.

A lack of photos is not going to torpedo The One.

I wonder if he sent his thugs to push her down, trying to get ahold of his real birth certificate. For her sake, I hope she didn't have it.

Her breaking her hip is very suspicious. This does not sound like it will be a friendly visit.

Despite all denials that it is an “issue”, the one constant in his life since Ubama/Barry was a student at Columbia is William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn

And perhaps before that, when he was at Occidental in California, Ayer’s brother who was an English Professor at Mills College, also the place where Obama may have met “Vera Baker” the toot now ensconced in Martinique

Seriously, this guy could not get a TS clearance if he had to apply for one

Bizarre is right. I can say all the things that I disagree with Barack on politically, but I cannot shake this undeniable gut feeling that something is very very wrong with this man and who he insulates himself with. Including his wife.

Why would Obama have to PERSONALLY go to Hawaii to take care of this BC issue? Why can't his lawyers (God knows he has enough of them) take care of things? As much as I admit the timing is odd there really is nothing I can see that would demand his physical presence.

Regarding his Grandmother I sincerely wish her a full recovery.

...Obama comes from a dysfunctional family ...

Everything about this guy is dysfunctional. His birth; his upbringing; his school years; his wife; his acquaintances; his contacts; his "work"; his time as a state senator; and so on, and even his choice for Vice President. Is a dysfunctional president what you need and want America??? Especially accompanied by a dysfunctional Congress???

Sometimes you might have to meet personally with your legal team, state officials- who knows
plus get out of the media campaign retinue spotlight
phone and FAX and long distance depositions doesnt always cut it

I am suspicious of Granny’s “grave’ illness requiring his presence because he’s waiting to do another couple rallies before he goes. I think he’s over there related to the lawsuit and Martin investigation, probably figuring out ways to legally and extralegally intimidate Martin and anyone in Hawaii who cooperates

His machine seems to have gotten to Corsi

Michelle and the kids apparently are not urgent about sending white Granny off, but then Martin points out O spent an hour total with his “beloved Granny” last summer and the wife and kids never even visited her in the summer trip

That Obama comes from a dysfunctional family on his mother’s side is obvious.

His great-grandmother Ruth committed suicide when his grandfather, Stanley was about 8 years old.
(abandonment # 1)

Stanley’s father Ralph Sr. left Stanley and Ralph Jr with his in-laws, the Armours, in El Dorado and moved to Witchita to live with his parents. (more about them later)
(abandoment #2)

Stanley was not a nice man. He had a history including being kicked out of school for punching the principal.
http://www.suntimes.com/news/politics/obama/familytree/545442,BSX-News-wotreedd09.stng

He did not seem like a nice father.
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2004164387_brodeur05m.html

“......Box called her friend “Stannie,” a nickname for Stanley. She was named for her father, who wanted a boy — and the girl knew it. As a result, their relationship was strained.

“He was hard on her, in that he picked on her,” Box said of Stanley Dunham, a furniture salesman in downtown Seattle.

“He had a sarcastic humor,” Box said, “and she could give it back.”

Dunham’s mother, Madelyn, a bank employee, was “very quiet and serious” and often protected her daughter from her husband’s sarcasm, Box said............”

Sounds like verbal abuse wrapped up in a pretty package to me. That Madelyn had to “protect” her daughter speaks volumes.

Make no mistake...in 1960 a 17 / 18 year old girl does not get pregnant by a black Kenyan out of wedlock as a matter of course. Not even in Hawaii. Rebellion? Escape?

Obama Sr. leaves Stanley Ann and Obama, eventually returning to Kenya
(abandonment #3)

Stanley Ann moves to Indonesia. She sends Bary back to the states while she remains in Indonesia with Lolo and their daughter.
(MAJOR abandonment #4)

Stanley Ann leaves Lolo because he wanted more kids and she did not want that path.
(abandonment 5)


In the Dunham family abandonment is part of the family legacy. Someone might say what happened generations ago has no bearing on the present. I would disagree because I have seen nothing to indicate a change in the way the families operate.

He doesn’t have any meat to toss.

I have no doubt but that he is right. I listened to ‘Dreams From My Father’. It gives very superficial support to Barry caring about his white family, but its primary theme is his rejection of them in favor of his extended black family in Africa.

What sort of person rejects the grandmother who raised and sacrificed for him in favor of people he knew only as adults, and who have never done anything for him?

My Mom, at 85, needed a wheelchair and her mind was shot. We took her out 2-3 times a week, and we still have photos of her and my 10 year old daughter together hanging in the house.

Barry’s grandmother sounds like her health is better than my Mom’s, yet he only visited her once in the last 19 months, for one hour, without his wife or kids. They visited her for about 20 minutes, one time. He didn’t visit his mother when she was dying in Hawaii.

Barry rejected his white family, and found a home in Trinity with a racist pastor - whose racist rants are found in DFMF...so yes, he KNEW his pastor hated whites.

The only logical conclusion is that Barack hates whites and white culture, and he bases it on his hatred for his white family.

HOWEVER - do you think you will see that written, even just the facts I stated, in Newsweek or discussed on NBC? Even Rush Limbaugh won’t take the heat for calling Barry - now Barack - a white-hating racist (with quite a bit of justification, based on his Mom’s behavior) who despises his white family.

The absence of a photo is far less powerful than Barack’s own words in DFMF, with audio available. Most Americans don’t care. Barack could be photographed strangling a white poodle while shouting “Die, Honky!” - and Democrats and many independents would say, “But he CARES about ME!”

I know, because that is my sister’s reaction. She is opposed to every viewpoint Obama has expressed or voted for, but plans to vote for him because, and I quote, “He CARES about ME!”

Now about the Dunham’s

as reference:
Obama—>Stanley Ann-—>Stanley-—>Ralph-—>Jacob

There have been various family trees posted on the net. The Chicago Sun-Times was one source.

Ralph Waldo Emerson DUNHAM
Occupation: auto mechanic; tooling dept. of Boeing Aircraft

That really bothers me. Because it only gives a small splice of his occupational history. He was not a blue collar worker all of his adult life.

Census info:
1900 census 6 years old no occupation
1910 census 16 years old no occupation
WWI Draft Registration “Ran a cafe Owned business” in Witchita
1920 Census 26 years old auto mechanic
1930 Census He was a druggist

His father Jacob was a pharmacist

Without saying so, the narrative lends to the impression that the Dunham side of Obama’s family is a long line of blue collar workers. I call it a lie by omission. I have to wonder why the Chicago Sun-Times chose the only mention of being a mechanic as a way to present Ralph Sr to the world in 2007.

That’s not true. The Dunham line was what we would call professional as opposed to woring a trade.

Stanley made choices in life that put him on a different path. He seems to have been the exception.

No photo with granny? Is that all you got?

If I were Barry's granny, I'd hide all the pillows when he comes for a visit.

Ged'it?

I hate the delay, but if the truth comes out closer to November 4, then the Demos don’t have time to recover and the voters have a choice to vote for a person or a shadow of one.

The Demos made their bone-head decision to go with Obama. And Obama chose Biden, the last one on his Veep list . . . guess the others bowed out because they didn’t want to forever be linked to him in people’s minds.

And anyone who publicly comes out for Obama will find themselves eating crow and washing egg off their faces come November 5.

Where his white grandmother is concerned, Barack Obama talks the talk but he does not walk the walk. The presence of our investigative team in Honolulu, the first media investigation of Obama’s Hawai’i heritage in the entire presidential campaign, triggered panic attacks in Obama’s organization. Obama has suspended his campaign and plans to arrive in Hawai’i Thursday in a desperate attempt to blunt the thrust of our reporting.

Reminds me of the story of the mouse who fell in love with an elephant. As she walked through the forest one day, he decided to have sex with her. And so made the long climb up her backside, and commenced with the act. It so happened that a bee stung the elephant at the same time. "Oh!" she exclaimed.

The mouse replied with a knowing chuckle, "that's all right, dear. I'll be gentle!"

Her breaking her hip is very suspicious.

You're right! Old ladies never break their hips!

Kneecaps would have been too suspicious!
