Obama, the African Colonial
American Thinker ^ | June 25, 2009 | L.E. Ikenga

Posted on 06/24/2009 10:54:57 PM PDT by neverdem

Had Americans been able to stop obsessing over the color of Barack Obama's skin and instead paid more attention to his cultural identity, maybe he would not be in the White House today. The key to understanding him lies with his identification with his father, and his adoption of a cultural and political mindset rooted in postcolonial Africa.

Like many educated intellectuals in postcolonial Africa, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was enraged at the transformation of his native land by its colonial conqueror. But instead of embracing the traditional values of his own tribal cultural past, he embraced an imported Western ideology, Marxism. I call such frustrated and angry modern Africans who embrace various foreign "isms", instead of looking homeward for repair of societies that are broken, African Colonials. They are Africans who serve foreign ideas.

The tropes of America's racial history as a way of understanding all things black are useless in understanding the man who got his dreams from his father, a Kenyan exemplar of the African Colonial.

Before I continue, I need to say this: I am a first generation born West African-American woman whose parents emigrated to the U.S. in the 1970's from the country now called Nigeria. I travel to Nigeria frequently. I see myself as both a proud American and as a proud Igbo (the tribe that we come from -- also sometimes spelled Ibo). Politically, I have always been conservative (though it took this past election for me to commit to this once and for all!); my conservative values come from my Igbo heritage and my place of birth. Of course, none of this qualifies me to say what I am about to -- but at the same time it does.

My friends, despite what CNN and the rest are telling you, Barack Obama is nothing more than an old school African Colonial who is on his way to turning this country into one of the developing nations that you learn about on the National Geographic Channel. Many conservative (East, West, South, North) African-Americans like myself -- those of us who know our history -- have seen this movie before. Here are two main reasons why many Americans allowed Obama to slip through the cracks despite all of his glaring inconsistencies:

First, Obama has been living on American soil for most of his adult life. Therefore, he has been able to masquerade as one who understands and believes in American democratic ideals. But he does not. Barack Obama is intrinsically undemocratic and as his presidency plays out, this will become more obvious. Second, and most importantly, too many Americans know very little about Africa. The one-size-fits-all understanding that many Americans (both black and white) continue to have of Africa might end up bringing dire consequences for this country.

Contrary to the way it continues to be portrayed in mainstream Western culture, Africa is not a continent that can be solely defined by AIDS, ethnic rivalries, poverty and safaris. Africa, like any other continent, has an immense history defined by much diversity and complexity. Africa's long-standing relationship with Europe speaks especially to some of these complexities -- particularly the relationship that has existed between the two continents over the past two centuries. Europe's complete colonization of Africa during the nineteenth century, also known as the Scramble for Africa, produced many unfortunate consequences, the African colonial being one of them.

The African colonial (AC) is a person who by means of their birth or lineage has a direct connection with Africa. However, unlike Africans like me, their worldviews have been largely shaped not by the indigenous beliefs of a specific African tribe but by the ideals of the European imperialism that overwhelmed and dominated Africa during the colonial period. AC's have no real regard for their specific African traditions or histories.  AC's use aspects of their African culture as one would use pieces of costume jewelry: things of little or no value that can be thoughtlessly discarded when they become a negative distraction, or used on a whim to decorate oneself in order to seem exotic. (Hint: Obama's Muslim heritage).

On the other hand, AC's strive to be the best at the culture that they inherited from Europe. Throughout the West, they are tops in their professions as lawyers, doctors, engineers, Ivy League professors and business moguls; this is all well and good. It's when they decide to engage us as politicians that things become messy and convoluted.

The African colonial politician (ACP) feigns repulsion towards the hegemonic paradigms of Western civilization. But at the same time, he is completely enamored of the trappings of its aristocracy or elite culture. The ACP blames and caricatures whitey to no end for all that has gone wrong in the world. He convinces the masses that various forms of African socialism are the best way for redressing the problems that European colonialism motivated in Africa. However, as opposed to really being a hard-core African Leftist who actually believes in something, the ACP uses socialist themes as a way to disguise his true ambitions: a complete power grab whereby the "will of the people" becomes completely irrelevant.

Barack Obama is all of the above. The only difference is that he is here playing (colonial) African politics as usual.  

In his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father -- an eloquent piece of political propaganda -- Obama styles himself as a misunderstood intellectual who is deeply affected by the sufferings of black people, especially in America and Africa. In the book, Obama clearly sees himself as an African, not as a black American. And to prove this, he goes on a quest to understand his Kenyan roots. He is extremely thoughtful of his deceased father's legacy; this provides the main clue for understanding Barack Obama.

Barack Obama Sr. was an African colonial to the core; in his case, the apple did not fall far from the tree. All of the telltale signs of Obama's African colonialist attitudes are on full display in the book -- from his feigned antipathy towards Europeans to his view of African tribal associations as distracting elements that get in the way of "progress".  (On p. 308 of Dreams From My Father, Obama says that African tribes should be viewed as an "ancient loyalties".)

Like imperialists of Old World Europe, the ACP sees their constituents not as free thinking individuals who best know how to go about achieving and creating their own means for success. Instead, the ACP sees his constituents as a flock of ignorant sheep that need to be led -- oftentimes to their own slaughter.

Like the European imperialist who spawned him, the ACP is a destroyer of all forms of democracy.

Here are a few examples of what the British did in order to create (in 1914) what is now called Nigeria and what Obama is doing to you

  1. Convince the people that "clinging" to any aspect of their cultural (tribal) identity or history is bad and regresses the process of "unity". British Imperialists deeply feared people who were loyal to anything other than the state. "Tribalism" made the imperialists have to work harder to get people to just fall in line. Imperialists pitted tribes against each other in order to create chaos that they then blamed on ethnic rivalry. Today many "educated" Nigerians, having believed that their traditions were irrelevant, remain completely ignorant of their ancestry and the history of their own tribes.
  2. Confiscate the wealth and resources of the area that you govern by any means necessary in order to redistribute wealth. The British used this tactic to present themselves as empathetic and benevolent leaders who wanted everyone to have a "fair shake". Imperialists are not interested in equality for all. They are interested in controlling all.  
  3. Convince the masses that your upper-crust university education naturally puts you on an intellectual plane from which to understand everything even when you understand nothing. Imperialists were able to convince the people that their elite university educations allowed them to understand what Africa needed. Many of today's Nigerians-having followed that lead-hold all sorts of degrees and certificates-but what good are they if you can't find a job?   
  4. Lie to the people and tell them that progress is being made even though things are clearly becoming worse.  One thing that the British forgot to mention to their Nigerian constituents was that one day, the resources that were being used to engineer "progress" (which the British had confiscated from the Africans to begin with!) would eventually run out. After WWII, Western Europe could no longer afford to hold on to their African colonies. So all of the counterfeit countries that the Europeans created were then left high-and-dry to fend for themselves. This was the main reason behind the African independence movements of the1950 and 60's. What will a post-Obama America look like?
  5. Use every available media outlet to perpetuate the belief that you and your followers are the enlightened ones-and that those who refuse to support you are just barbaric, uncivilized, ignorant curmudgeons.  This speaks for itself.

America, don't be fooled. The Igbos were once made up of a confederacy of clans that ascribed to various forms of democratic government. They took their eyes off the ball and before they knew it, the British were upon them. Also, understand this: the African colonial who is given too much political power can only become one thing: a despot.

AIRLIFT TO AMERICA is the never-before-told and quite heroic story of the 1959-1963 airlifts from East Africa that helped Barack Obama, Sr., father of the president-elect, and Wangari Maathai, future winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, among hundreds of others, to study at American and Canadian colleges and universities. The airlifts and their graduates changed not only the future course of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and other nations of East Africa, but also the course of U.S. race relations. Jack Kennedy's donation to enable the 1960 airlift became an important issue in that year's American presidential election, and was a factor in swinging enough African-American votes into his column to give him the victory.



See second-last paragraph of interview:

'Obama, who has been away from Kenya for seven years...'

Dated June 22, 1962.

MBOYA 1955 - 1956

Mboya became a prominent figure in Kenyan politics - organising protests against mass removals, detention camps, and secret trials. The British Labour Party arranged for a year’s scholarship (1955—56) to Oxford University, studying industrial management at Ruskin College. By the time he returned to Kenya the Mau Mau rebellion had been effectively quashed. Over 10,000 Mau Mau rebels were estimated to have been killed during the disturbance, compared to just over 100 Europeans.

MBOYA 1957

In 1957 Mboya formed the People’s Convention Party and was elected to join the colony’s legislative council (Legco) as one of only eight African members. He immediately began to campaign (forming a bloc with his African colleagues) to demand equal representation — and the legislative body was reformed with 14 African and 14 European delegates, representing over 6 million Africans and almost 60,000 whites respectively.

MBOYA 1958 - 1959 - 1960

In 1958 Mboya attended a convention of African nationalists at Accra, Ghana. He was elected chairman and declared it “the proudest day of my life.” The following year he received his first honorary doctorate, and helped set up the African-American Students Foundation which raised money to subsidise the cost of flights for East African students studying in America. In 1960 the Kenya African National Union, KANU, was formed from the remnants of the KAU and Mboya elected secretary-general.

Aah so .. thank you. WND has it as well.


Why didn’t dad mention us?

Barack Obama Jr. comments in “Dreams from My Father” with disappointment that his father never mentioned his mother or him in the Honolulu newspapers.

In a passage on pages 26-27, Obama says that when he was in high school he found, folded away, his birth certificate and old vaccination forms. He also said he discovered a clipping of an article published about his father in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.

Most likely the article is the one presented above.

“No mention is made of my mother or me, and I’m left to wonder whether the omission was intentional on my father’s part, in anticipation of his long departure,” Obama wrote.

“Perhaps the reporter failed to ask personal questions, intimidated by my father’s imperious manner; or perhaps it was an editorial decision, not part of the simple story that they were looking for. I wonder too, whether the omission caused a fight between my parents.”

In the autobiography, Obama does not answer what is posed as a rhetorical question.


Indeed .. one of my many eternal questions:

who’s your daddy?

...Indeed .. one of my many eternal questions: who’s your daddy?

Who's your mother? Why are there no images of 'the parents' together until the airport images from 1971, and why are there no images of the mother and child until zero is around two years of age?

Makes one wonder...doesn't it? Just when did Stanley Ann first show up in Hawaii?

See second last paragraph...Obama, who has been away from Kenya for seven years... OK NOW! Just how observant are we? What does that tell you about the AIRLIFT MYTH AND THE 'FRIENDSHIP' WITH HIS BENEFACTOR MBOYA!

comment source

Why was Mark, the son of Ruth and Barak Hussein Obama Onyango the ONLY one who could could prove his parentage and therefor inherit, when the old man was killed? Why did 'granny Sarah' tell the children of Kezia NONE OF YOU ARE HIS CHILDREN!?


Mboya joined Kenyatta's party, the Kenya Africa Union, and served as its acting treasurer until the organization was banned by the British in 1953. With open political action made virtually impossible, Mboya worked for the same ends through the labor movement, especially through the Kenya Federation of Labour; he was its secretary general from 1953 to 1963. This work brought him into the orbit of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions. In 1958 Mboya was elected to its board, and he became an increasingly well-known member to the European and American supporters of the confederation. Within Kenya he gained his first general fame for his role in the Mombasa dock strike of 1955, where his involvement helped the workers to gain a 33 percent pay raise. Realizing his need for more education, Mboya attended Ruskin College, Oxford, in 1955 for a year's study.

So we see that in the very same year that the son of the kenyan goat-herder departed Kenya at the age of 19, Mboya went to England to study at Oxford. Anyone trying to connect these two people in a friendship that led to the student airlift which commenced THREE MONTHS AFTER the kenyan goat-herder's son landed in Hawaii, LET ALONE his employment with the government of Kenya on his really handing out a very LONG rope a dope IMO.

Mboya DID NOT give the son of a kenyan goat-herder a job; when he returned to Kenya HE WORKED FOR AN OIL COMPANY.

The 75-year-old adds he knew Obama Sr when he worked for BP/Shell in Nairobi.

“One of his friends was President Kibaki. One day when I was walking with him in Nairobi, Kibaki, then the Minister for Finance stopped his car next to us and offered him a lift,” says Tolo.

He adds: “The President rode with him to his office and I am told that was the day he got a job in the Treasury as an economist.”

Kibaki was previously Vice President of Kenya for ten years from 1978–1988 and also held cabinet ministerial positions, including a widely acclaimed stint as Minister for Finance (1969–1981), Minister for Home Affairs (1982–1988) and Minister for Health (1988–1991).[1]

There are other sources that place his employment with the government of Kenya commencing 1970. In any event, it could NOT have been before Kibaki became Minister for Finance in 1969.


Thomas Joseph Odhiambo Mboya (August 15, 1930 - July 5, 1969) was a prominent Kenyan politician during Jomo Kenyatta’s government. He was founder of the Nairobi People’s Congress Party, a key figure in the formation of the Kenya African National Union (KANU), and the Minister of Economic Planning and Development at the time of his death.

Mboya was assassinated on July 5, 1969 in Nairobi.

Abercrombie witnessed the crumbling of Barack Obama Sr. during a trip to Africa in 1968. He and a mutual friend from Hawaii stayed with their old pal in Nairobi. “It was clear to us how disappointed he was,” Abercrombie recalls. “He was drinking. There was a bitterness in him, an edge.”

Barack Obama Sr. to Tom Mboya, May 29, 1962


January 25, 2010 news

Hoover Archives Unveils Correspondence Between Kenyan Independence Leader and American Philanthropist Responsible for Helping Educate Hundreds of Kenyans Including Barack Obama Sr.

Kenyan university students arriving at Idlewild Airport, New York, 1959 (William X. Scheinman Papers, Box 49:10, Hoover Institution Archives).The Hoover Institution Library and Archives recently announced the opening of the papers of William X. Scheinman (1927–1999), a longtime friend of and correspondent with Kenyan independence leader Tom Mboya. The highlight of the collection is the rich correspondence between Scheinman and Mboya, which contains hundreds of letters, beginning in 1957 and ending only with Mboya’s untimely death from an assassin’s bullet in 1969. Mboya served in the first cabinet of Kenya after it achieved independence from Great Britain in 1963.

Scheinman, an American businessman and investment adviser, first met Mboya in 1956. In subsequent meetings the two men, realizing that the future development of an independent Kenya required an educated populace, developed a program to bring Kenyan students to the United States to pursue their university studies. Founded in 1959, the African American Students Foundation, with Scheinman as its president, helped make it possible for funding the education of hundreds of Kenyan students to study in the United States; among them was President Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr.


[25] Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, and Jackie Robinson appeal letter, Aug. 24, 1959, box 3, Robinson Papers; Smith, “East African Airlifts of 1959, 1960, and 1961,” 25–43. Barack Obama wrote that his father “had been selected by Kenyan leaders and American sponsors to attend a university in the United States,” but a list of the students who landed in New York on September 9, 1959, does not contain the name of the elder Obama. Tom Shachtman, working in the African-American Students Foundation (aasf) papers for a book on the airlifts, has found that the elder Obama came in 1959 with support from the aasf but appears to have been routed a different way as he made his way to the University of Hawaii. Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance (New York, 1995), 9; “Eighty-One Kenya Airlift Students Arrived New York Sept. 9th 1959,” box 3, Robinson Papers; Tom Shachtman telephone interview by James H. Meriwether, Aug. 19, 2008, notes (confirmed via e-mail by Shachtman) (in James H. Meriwether’s possession).

I think I get the picture now; the son of a kenyan goat-herder left the school at Maseno in 1953, married in 1954, and as he said at the interview in Hawaii in 1962, he hadn’t been back to Kenya for seven years, he must have left Kenya in 1955.


Not quite. His eldest child Malik was six years of age when he left Kenya, remember? How does that work?

I’ll try again.

The son of a kenyan goat-herder had a six year old son when he left Kenya in 1959, so he must have married when he was 17, and was working in Nairobi for an arab as a clerk...we all remember that, don’t we? And he was a friend of Mboya - wonder how they met? - but never mind, Kezia was pregnant when he left Kenya to go to Hawaii...and had a two year-old.

Hold it!

Didn’t the family in Kenya state at an interview that their son of a kenyan goat-herder relative went to the US, worked for an oil company and married a white woman named Anna Toot?

Yes, they did.

So we’ll have another go. The son of a kenya goat-herder - if we take him at his word, left Kenya seven years before he left Hawaii, and that makes it 1955, right? Ah! Beginning to see the light now...that’s why Kezia was confused, she must have married the son of the kenyan goat-herder in 1953, because at another interview she said her eldest was TWO years old when he left...

Getting closer?

In 2008 Kezia said her oldest son Malik was 50. But if the son of a kenyan goat-herder left Kenya in 1955 like he said at the Hawaii interview, Malik would have to be at least 55 if he was two years old when...

I’ve mucked up again, evidently.

It’s all too hard. Let someone else work it all out. What I can’t figure out is how could Mboya and the son of a kenya goat-herder be such good friends? If he left Kenya in 1955, he would have been around 19 years of age and Mboya who was five years older, was in England, studying at Oxford.

At least one thing seems clear. The son of a kenyan goat-herder was never part of the first airlift of students which landed at Idlewild three months before he showed up in Hawaii. And when he was first interveiwed in Hawaii in June 1959, he told the reporter he only had enough money for three semesters and needed to find work to support himself.

Just got lucky, I guess.

By Kepher Otieno and John Oywa

The death of Pamela Mboya could be a setback to efforts to unravel the murder of her husband.

Relatives and friends of former Planning Minister Thomas Joseph Mboya yesterday said Pamela was planning to push for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission so that Kenyans could finally get to know why Mboya was murdered in cold blood in July 1969.

Mrs Mboya, 70, died at a hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she was undergoing treatment on Monday.

Mr Otieno Nundu, a former personal assistant to the late Mboya and who was with him minutes before his assassination, said Mrs Mboya had planned to appear before the truth commission about her husband’s death.

“She was to lead Mboya’s friends and relatives to the commission. Now we are back to zero,” said Mr Nundu.

He added: “It is a big shock. With her death, many secrets about Tom may never be known.”

Annan Team

In February last year, Pamela wrote to the Kofi Annan mediation team and expressed her willingness to testify regarding the unresolved murder of her husband 40 years ago.

Mboya was shot in broad daylight on July 5, 1969 on Nairobi’s Government Road (Now Moi Avenue).

Your tenacity in the search of truth is boundless. If it would be of any benefit to you, I would claim you as a member of my immediate family. :-)

One, or both, of us has to post a revised best fits the unadulterated facts as they appear to be, given our best guess. Already, my brain hurts... so you go first.

I.E., we need a new best-guess time-line-—a “simple” DATE-EVENT time-line.

I’m thinking we need to produce some kind of truth serum into which we immerse ‘Dreams From My Father’ ... it has to be a medium that disolves lies; so that the ink rises to a scum at the top. And what is left on the pages will be the truth.

But there’ll be nothing but empty pages -

Title: African American Students Foundation (Cora Weiss collection)
Description: The African American Students Foundation (AASF) was founded in 1959. In April 1959, prior to Kenyan independence, trade unionist Tom Mboya visited the U.S. at the invitation of the American Committee on Africa; Mboya talked on many college campuses and was given scholarships from many colleges. The AASF was set up to raise money and bring students from East Africa to the U.S. to use these scholarships. Although based in New York, AASF had a national focus. Baseball star Jackie Robinson and performers Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier led the initial fundraising. AASF raised an initial $39,000 and as a result organized the first of several “airlifts” of East African students, mostly from Kenya, to the U.S. in September 1959. In 1960 the Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation gave $100,000 to AASF. As a result in 1960 three planes were chartered bringing 222 students from east and central Africa. The archive includes photographs. Cora Weiss was Executive Director and student adviser. Archive deposited by Cora Weiss.

When I originally posted research, I had recalled that Weiss was not altogether satisfied with Shachtman's book and had considered writing one of her own.

Airlift to America

The story of the airlifts is a continuing one. On this page, we hope to share with you news we receive that touches on the airlifts, their participants, and the accomplishments. On a separate page we ask our readers to share memories and thoughts they have on these subjects.

ARTHUR BORDEN, COUNSEL FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS FOUNDATION passed away on July 23. His obituary is available in the July 26, 2010 edition of The New York Times.

The former principals of the nonprofit shared the following comments upon his death:

We are saddened to learn of the death on July 23, 2010 of Arthur Borden who incorporated the African American Students Foundation in 1958 and was a dedicated supporter of this unique initiative which brought so many students to the US from East Africa. The vast majority of the Airlift students returned to become the nation builders of their soon to be independent countries. The stories from that successful adventure can be found on the pages of this web site and in the book, Airlift to America: How Barack Obama, Sr., John F Kennedy, Tom Mboya and 800 East African Students changed their world and ours, by Tom Shachtman. St Martin's Press. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Arthur.

THE NEW YORK TIMES, IN ITS BLOG “PAPERCUTS”, INVITED COMMENT FROM TOM SHACHTMAN, author of “Airlift to America” on the events leading up the founding of the African American Students Foundation. The comments were published online on May 7, 2010.

IN A LETTER IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW, CORA WEISS TALKS ABOUT THE ROLE OF AIRLIFT IN BARACK OBAMA SR.’S ACADEMIC CAREER. In the April 29, 2010 issue of the New York Times Book Review, Cora Weiss, executive director of the African American Students Foundation, added to the account of the airlift of African students mentioned by Barack Obama in his speech at Selma in 2007 and described in Garry Wills’s review of David Remnick’s biography of President Obama, “The Bridge”. She wrote “Barack Obama Sr., who greatly admired Mboya, did not come on the first flight, but he was a member of the airlift generation, arriving here in 1959 with the support of two American women teachers. While he was a student at the University of Hawaii, the A.A.S.F. gave him three grants.”LIBRARY OF CONGRESS HOSTS TALK ON AIRLIFT: Tom Shachtman, author of Airlift to America, and Cora Weiss, former Executive Director of the African American Students Foundation, spoke on March 12, 2010 about the Airlift at a Library of Congress Event, on the occasion of the Africa Section's 50th anniversary celebrations.

In addition to the Mboya correspondence, the William X. Scheinman papers contain records of the African American Students Foundation, documenting fund-raising efforts, led by such personalities as Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, and Jackie Robinson, and records of the foundation’s various activities from 1959 to 1963. Also included are extensive correspondence files that record Scheinman’s long-standing interest in Africa, as seen in letters to and from African political and cultural leaders such as Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi, Zimbabwean independence leader Joshua Nkomo, longtime Zambia president Kenneth Kaunda, and Malawian independence leaders Henry Chipembere and M.W. Kanyama Chiume, as well as South African singer and human rights activist Miriam Makeba.

Interesting connection, from your Airlift to America Org link,

The advisers to the Kennedy Foundation arrive in Nairobi to review the airlift operations. Back row, left to right: Albert Sims, Institute of International Education; Gordon Hagberg, African-American Institute; Theodore Kheel, secretary-treasurer of AASF. Front row, left to right : an unidentified man, Dr. Aaron Brown of the Phelps Stokes Fund, Tom Mboya, and Father Gordon Fournier of the Foundation for All Africa (1960).

...Their cook was Hussein Onyango Obama, none other than the paternal grandfather of President Obama. Gloria recalls the times Hussein’s son, the youthful student Barack Obama Sr, would visit their house, announcing: “I’ve come to see the old man!”

Although the young Obama Sr. left for the University of Hawaii before the first formal student airlift, he did maintain his friendship with the Hagbergs when he returned to Kenya.

AFRICAN-AMERICAN INSTITUTE. GORDON HAGBERG. The very same Institute referrenced by David Horowitz in the book THE ROCKEFELLERS. In which David notes that the AFRICAN-AMERICAN INSTITUTE was instrumental in bringing several thousands of foreign students, many from Africa, to the US -IN THE EARLY FIFTIES.

So if anyone would know WHEN the son of THEIR COOK, Hussein Onyango Obama left Kenya, one might ask GORDON AND GLORIA HAGBERG.

very interesting, BUT...From your source:

"In 1935, she married Cornell University graduate Gordon Hagberg, a newspaperman born in India of missionary parents.

With the intensification of the Cold War, America began expanding cultural programmes in many of the world’s emerging nations.

Having always wanted to return to India, in 1950 Gordon got a job in the United States Information Service (USIS) and the couple spent two years in Madras.

It seemed almost fated that their next overseas assignment with USIS would bring them to East Africa, as Gordon’s parents had met in Lamu and married in Zanzibar.

In 1956, when the Hagbergs arrived in Nairobi, the Emergency was in its last two years."

Assuming BHO, Sr left Africa earlier than 1959 (AND earlier than 1956 according to his statement, the time line doesn't work.

On the other hand, that doesn't mean they may not be in possession of some useful information.

Langston Hughes was a sponsor of the Scientific and Cultural Conference for World Peace which ran from March 25 - 27, 1949 in New York City. It was arranged by a Communist Party USA front organization known as the National Council of the Arts, Sciences, and Professions. The conference was a follow-up to a similar gathering, the strongly anti-America, pro-Soviet World Congress of Intellectuals which was held in Poland, August 25 - 28, 1948.[2]


Investigative journalist Cliff Kincaid and Herbert Romerstein, a former investigator with the U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities, presented evidence Obama was mentored, while attending high school in Hawaii, by Frank Marshall Davis, an African-American poet and journalist who was also a CPUSA member.

The authors, in a separate report, document Obama's ties to radicals in Chicago who helped launch his career.

In a paper entitled "Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection," the authors document that in 1948, Davis decided to move from Chicago to Honolulu at the suggestion of what they describe as two "secret CPUSA members," actor Paul Robeson and Harry Bridges, the head of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen Union, or ILWU.

In Chicago, Davis had worked for the Chicago Star newspaper; in Honolulu, he was hired as a reporter for the Honolulu Record, both identified by Kincaid and Romerstein as "communist front newspapers."


Worked for Associated Negro Press Those books made Davis's reputation and cemented his relationships with Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and other leading black writers whom he met while participating in the federal Works Progress Administration Writers' Project and other organizations

Read more: Frank Marshall Davis Biography - Victim of Attempted Lynching, Worked for Associated Negro Press, Moved to Hawaii...


The Nazi-Soviet Pact of 1939 presented the most troubling dilemma for American Communists. It came on the heels of the bloody anti-Trotskyite Great Purges in which many CPUSA members quit the party with apprehension and fear over what the Party had become. Those who remained during the purges were, for the most part, dedicated anti-fascists. However, with the coming of the Communazi era wherein German Chancellor Adolf Hitler became an ally of the Soviet Union against French and British Imperialism, only the most ardent Stalinists continued in the party who were willing to overlook, and justify, Stalin's murderous excesses. Among them were Frank Marshall Davis.


HONOLULU, Hawaii – The late Marxist activist Frank Marshall Davis, frequently accompanied by young Barack Obama and his grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham, sold marijuana and cocaine from a "Chicago style" hot dog cart Davis operated near his home on Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki in the early 1970s, WND has established.

A credible source, a well-known resident of Honolulu who spoke at length with WND on condition he not be named, disclosed that Davis was the source of drugs consumed by Obama. Davis was also the author of an autobiographical novel boasting of "swinging" and sex with minors, a copy of which WND obtained from Andrew Walden, a resident of Hilo on the island of Hawaii and publisher of the Hawaii Free Press...

..."Obama was a young kid, about 14 or 15 years old," the source told WND. "I was told his name was Barry, and there was no doubt Barry knew Davis was selling marijuana and cocaine as well as hot dogs from the stand."


Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) was a black poet and writer (he wrote for the Honolulu Record, a Communist newspaper), and a known member of the Soviet-controlled Communist Party USA (CPUSA).

Davis’ good friend Paul Robeson, who himself was a dedicated Stalinist, persuaded him in 1948 to move to Honoloulu, Hawaii. In 1950 Edward Berman, a member of the NAACP‘s Honolulu branch, testified to the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) that Davis had “sneaked” into local NAACP meetings to “propagandize” the organization’s members about America’s “racial problems,” with “the avowed intent and purpose of converting it into a front for the Stalinist line.”

Davis was identified unequivocally as a CPUSA member in a 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii (CSALTH), which, along with HUAC, also charged that Davis was affiliated with a number of communist-front organizations. According to Max Friedman, a former undercover member of several Communist-controlled “anti-war” groups, Davis testified in 1956 before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee and took the Fifth Amendment when asked about his Communist Party membership.

Wow Fred. Great Historical research you are doig, using both primary and secondary sources.Are you going for a doctoral thesis?????? ( Just joking).

But all joking aside, I hope you are keeping your writings in a series of text files, one day they will make an interesting book.

Its a lot of work, actually defining the social milieu of Obamas predecessors, and mentors into the contemporary era. Since Obama has washed his true history from the inside out, you are proceeeding from the outside in, and Obama cannot wash that, as much as he might like.Excellent strategy , but a lot of work.

Thank you for it!!!!!!! KIIIIIIIISssssssssSSSSS!

Apart from the flights to America, Mboya’s political nemesis, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, organised several airlifts to Eastern countries like the Soviet Union.

Kiano says he personally played a part in selecting students to India and Israel. He was a member of the India Government’s Scholarship Committee in the 1960s: “My colleague Oginga Odinga was able to obtain thousands of scholarships from the Eastern countries particularly the Soviet Union where the Patrice Lumumba University had just been established. He also obtained scholarships from Poland, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, and other countries. While Mboya and I were doing the American trips, Odinga was also travelling East.”

Among the beneficiaries to the Odinga airlifts was Cabinet Minister Joseph Kamotho. Kamotho studied both in the East and West. He went to the Soviet Union then returned to be given a scholarship to Syracuse University in the US.

I spent last night trying to find out more about Helen Canfield Davis and ended up at TD’s where some gals into geneaology were also researching. Apparently she was Helen Canfield Peck and her family disowned her when she married Davis. She was a card carrying member of the Communist Party and met Davis at the Abraham Lincoln School in Chicago (which apparently was a front for the Communist Party) Digging further I found that they lived 30 miles from Honolulu and he drove in daily, until the divorce in 1970 when he re-located to Waikiki which is detailed in a post above. I still have been unable to find out birth dates for his children(aside from Mark b.1950) although I did manage to find out their names now. The other children are: Beth Charlton, Lynn M. Smith,Jeanne M. Hyde, and Jill M. Prive found in the dedication to the autobiography of Davis...

...Obama’s paternal grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama worked as a cook for a British army officer when he became involved with the Kenyan independence movement. Grandpa Obama was arrested in 1949 as a supporter of the Kikuyu Central Association, the organization that ultimately spawned the Mau Mau. There is no question that the Kenyan penal system of that era was a violent place; mere imprisonment was not considered sufficiently punitive; torture was ubiquitous. Grandpa Hussein’s wife tells of horrific torture of her husband at the hands of the Brits. Some of her recollections are questionable however: one scene of hell on earth she describes is actually a pretty good description of the process of delousing.

There is also no dispute that if Hussein was arrested for subversive activities, he was up to something more than just community organizing. He certainly would have been subject to some Enhanced Interrogation Techniques using more than a caterpillar or Neti pot.

The left wants to paint the Mau Mau as yet another misunderstood group of oppressed victims. The truth is; the Mau Maus were vicious guerilla fighters. Contrary to popular folklore, the Mau Mau slaughtered far more Kikuyu citizens than the whites they were supposedly rebelling against.

Mau Mau membership required taking an oath which was not exactly frat boy material. The colonial secretary, Oliver Lyttleton wrote:

“The Mau Mau oath is the most bestial, filthy and nauseating incantation which perverted minds can ever have brewed. I have never felt the forces of evil to be so near and as strong as in Mau Mau. As I wrote memoranda or instruction, I would suddenly see a shadow fall across the page-the horned shadow of the Devil himself.”

Little information is available as to the specific language of individual oaths, but we know that the process was taken seriously and had more elements of magic than politics. Kikuyu were under tremendous pressure to take the oath and join the movement.

Counter insurgency expert, Major Frank Kitson describes a Mau Mau body snatching raid:

“The gang, frenzied by the thought of blood, slashed around with their simis (a Kikuyu sword) and fired their guns. One old man, slower than the rest, was caught and hamstrung. He fell at the feet of his pursuers, covering his face with his arms to protect it from the slicing swords, but a mouse in a mechanical mincing machine would have had a better chance of survival. One terrorist hacked off a foot, and another sliced off his testicles to use later in an Oathing ceremony. A third gouged out his eyes with a staple and put them in his pocket for the same purpose. When they had finished, most of the gang came by to cut and stab the twitching corpse. They then licked the blood off their simis and moved off into the night; having first set fire to all the huts they could see.”

Other writers claim the oath was far more innocuous. However, a 322 page report by Career Colonial Administrator, Frank D. Cornfield supports the seamier version:

“By compelling Mau Mau members to violate not only Christian ethics but every tribal one as well, Mau Mau leaders deliberately reduced their victims to a state where a man who took the Mau Mau oath was cut off ‘from all hope, outside Mau Mau, in this world or the next. Cornfield found that to achieve this absolute loyalty to the movement, ‘ . . . leadership forced its recruits, voluntary or involuntary, to seal their oaths by digging up corpses and eating their putrefied flesh, copulating with sheep, dogs or adolescent girls, and by drinking the famed ‘Kaberichia cocktail’-a mixture of semen and menstrual blood.”

They sound like earnest freedom fighters, right? Again substantiating that Barack Obama has never known a normal person, his grandfather’s support for the Mau Mau was manifest enough to get Hussein arrested. The struggle for independence from the Brits may have been a noble one, but not justification for the kind of depravity indulged by the Mau Mau. Longtime nationalist leader and Mau Mau manager Jomo Kenyatta studied economics in Moscow in 1932. We are not supposed to make too much of that.

For the UNknowing, the UNaware and the wary,

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), its judicial...all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes.
Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

The sooner America learns this , the better. Some know and many do not, but it is a threat to everything America knows.

Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. He is doing nothing to protect America as per his oath. Also, as a Muslim, he knows this, he know far better, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.
For all interested...Wanna learn more?
On Sharia

On sharia global finance

On sharia global Economy and huge financial fraud!!!

Three things about Islam

and a little Bill Whittle

Maybe we should talk about the birth of Pakistan?

How can anyone suggest Obama maybe a Muslim... most unfounded statement ever!

For the unaware and unknowing.... and the wary

We all have different dreams, and perceptions about America and what it should become. A special thank you to Cruise _Missile for summarizing his observations!

Obama is a Muslim wanabe or Wahabe

• The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.

• His biological father was a Muslim.

• Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.

• His stepfather was a Muslim.

• As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
• Barack Hussein Obama’s first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammad’s horse. Husein, enough said.

• Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)

• On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth.”

• Obama belonged to Rev. Wright’s (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.

• Obama’s said that the U.S. is “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

• Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Penetration of the Obama Administration

Posted By Jamie Glazov On February 3, 2011 @ 1:00 am In Daily Mailer, FrontPage | 58 Comments

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Pamela Geller, founder, editor and publisher of the popular and award-winning weblog She has won acclaim for her interviews with internationally renowned figures, including John Bolton, Geert Wilders, Bat Ye’or, Natan Sharansky, and many others, and has broken numerous important stories — notably the questionable sources of some of the financing of the Obama campaign. Her op-eds have been published in The Washington Times, The American Thinker, Israel National News, Frontpage Magazine, World Net Daily, and New Media Journal, among other publications. She is the co-author (with Robert Spencer) of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.

FP: Pamela Geller, welcome to Frontpage Interview.

Well, perhaps for those who are familiar with your work and with your book, it is not a big surprise for them that Obama has endorsed a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new, post-Mubarak government for Egypt.

I would like to narrow in with you today about the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration of the Obama administration. What can you tell us about this Islamist penetration of the White House?

Geller: Thanks Jamie.

The first thing we need to realize is that the Muslim Brotherhood operates in the United States under a variety of names and organizational umbrellas. Technically, there is no “Muslim Brotherhood” in the United States. But the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others are – according to a document captured in a raid and released by law enforcement in 2007 during the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding trial) – Brotherhood-linked organizations.

FP: Right, and crystallize for us why we need to be concerned about Brotherhood-linked organizations in the U.S.

Geller: Because, Jamie, that same captured document explains that the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission in the U.S. is “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

FP: And people with ties to these organizations are involved with the Obama Administration, right?

Geller: Yes they are, Jamie, in various ways. On the first day of his presidency, the President showed an eagerness to be friendly toward the Brotherhood: he chose Ingrid Mattson, president of ISNA to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral during inaugural festivities on January 20, 2009.

Superficially, Obama’s choice was understandable: Ingrid Mattson was a Canadian convert to Islam who carefully cultivated the image of a moderate spokesperson. But ISNA has even admitted ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, which calls itself “one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine.”

Mattson has also tried to set Jews and Christians against one another. Speaking at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government in March 2007, Mattson said: “Right-wing Christians are very risky allies for American Jews, because they [the Christians] are really anti-Semitic. They do not like Jews.”

But Obama didn’t seem to care about any of that. And so she prayed for Barack Hussein Obama on January 20, 2009. And it gets worse: after that, Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Senior Advisor for Public Engagement and International Affairs and a longtime, close Obama aide, asked Mattson to join the White House Council on Women and Girls, which is dedicated to “advancing women’s leadership in all communities and sectors – up to the U.S. presidency – by filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women.”

A hijab-wearing leader of a group with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorists and Islamic supremacists – that’s diverse, all right!

FP: Yes diverse all right. I wonder why we haven’t heard Mattson coming to the defense of victims of honor killings and denouncing the Islamic theological teachings that serve as a buffer for those killings. It would be interesting to know what she would have to say about your article, Honor Killing: Islam’s Gruesome Gallery, where you humanize this tragedy by showing us the faces of dead victims and surviving victims of Islamic misogynist violence.

But I guess we shouldn’t hold our breath waiting for Mattson to comment. I encourage all of our readers to look at that Gallery to not only get an idea of the viciousness of Islamic gender apartheid, but also of what kind of people Obama is has around him — since they are the ones who are complicit in and sanction this violence.

Ok, let us move on. Tell us more about the Muslim Brotherhood presence in the Obama Administration.

Geller: In June 2009, Obama appointed a Muslim, Kareem Shora, to the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Shora had been executive director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, a group that had generally opposed anti-terror efforts since 9/11 – as have all the Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in the U.S. But more worrisome was Obama’s appointment of another Muslim, Arif Alikhan, to be Assistant Secretary for Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Alikhan is affiliated with the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), which is another highly deceptive Brotherhood-linked group.

FP: Why did the President make these appointments?

Geller: These appointments were obvious attempts to show the Muslims of the United States and the world that anti-terror efforts were not anti-Islam or anti-Muslim. Shora and Alikhan would stand as moderate Muslims within the DHS, living illustrations of the iron dogma that all Muslims aside from a tiny minority were loyal Americans who abhorred Osama bin Laden and everything he stood for. But when he made the appointment, Obama didn’t notice, or didn’t care, that as deputy mayor of Los Angeles, Alikhan (who has referred to the jihad terrorist group Hizballah as a “liberation movement”) had blocked an effort by the Los Angeles Police Department to gather information about the ethnic makeup of area mosques.

FP: You mean to conduct surveillance in Los Angeles-area mosques?

Geller: No, Jamie. This was not an effort to close down Los Angeles mosques, or to conduct surveillance of them. There was no wiretapping or interrogation involved. No one would be jailed or even inconvenienced. Los Angeles Deputy Chief Michael P. Downing explained in 2007: “We want to know where the Pakistanis, Iranians and Chechens are so we can reach out to those communities.” But even outreach was too much for the hypersensitive Muslim leaders of Los Angeles: they cried racism, discrimination, and “Islamophobia” until the LAPD dropped the plan. And Arif Alikhan spearheaded their drive against this initiative.

Did Obama want him to bring to the Department of Homeland Security a similar sensitivity to the quickly wounded feelings of Muslims? I expect so.

FP: Talk a bit about that.

Geller: We are all well aware of Obama’s oft-stated commitment to defending and spreading the ideology of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood. Remember: in Cairo on June 4, 2009, Obama boasted that “the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it….I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal.” Five days later, as if to show that Obama was serious about what he said in Cairo, his post-American Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Essex County, New Jersey, charging that the county had discriminated against a Muslim woman, Yvette Beshier.

Beshier was a corrections officer, and had been forbidden to wear her khimar, or headscarf, while working. When she refused to comply, the Essex County Department of Corrections (DOC) first suspended and then fired her – the khimar was not part of the uniform, and corrections officers were expected to conform to uniform policy. But such policies, of course, were drawn up before the days of politically correct multiculturalism. Instead of simply expecting employees to conform to company rules, now the company had to adapt to the religious particularities of its Muslim employees: Barack Obama’s Justice Department sued on Beshier’s behalf.

When Obama in Cairo boasted about fighting for hijab-wearing women in the United States, he promised to “punish” infidels for not submitting to the dictates and whims of Islam. The lawsuit that followed less than a week later showed that he was in earnest.

It was almost certainly the first time that the United States Justice Department had filed a lawsuit in order to enforce an element of Sharia, Islamic law.

On duty, Yvette Beshier, like all her fellow corrections officers, should have worn religiously neutral garb. Off duty, she could have dressed any way she wanted. But ultimately the Justice Department’s suit wasn’t really about the dress code at the Essex County Department of Corrections at all. It was about asserting Islamic practices in the U.S., and establishing and reinforcing the precedent that when Islamic law and American law and custom conflicted, it was American law that had to give way.

And that’s just how the Muslim Brotherhood would want it.

FP: Interesting. I wonder when Obama will make an announcement that will defend Muslim women’s right not to veil and not to fear physical violence or acid attacks on their faces when making that decision? Aqsa Parvez was killed by her father, in part, for not veiling. I wonder why Obama didn’t come to Aqsa’s defense? Thank you, Pamela, by the way, for coming to Aqsa’s defense.

So let’s talk about the upheaval in Egypt. What do you think of how Obama is handling the situation?

Geller: Obama approved of a role in the next Egyptian government for the Muslim Brotherhood just as a Brotherhood leader was calling for war several days ago with the tiny Jewish state. It was telling. What better way to unify the ummah than with tried-and-true, religiously mandated Islamic anti-semitism? For all of those quisling clowns desperately trying to scrub the Muslim Brotherhood, this declaration of war was a good hard slap in the face.

Further, it’s interesting how the Muslim Brotherhood is blaming Israel for Mubarak’s regime. They’re not blaming the $300 billion the US has pumped into Egypt. The Camp David Peace Accord (no matter how cold a peace it established) was a good thing. Now we hear that Obama’s would-be peace partners, the Muslim Brotherhood group Hamas, are going to destroy the accord. But they want peace with the Jews; get it? Me neither.

Obama has been secretly supporting this revolution for three years. Why? He ignored the people of Iran marching against the annihilationist mullahcracy of Iran. He gave his tacit support to mass slaughter where millions took to the streets.

Anyone who, like Obama, sees a Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt as a good thing secretly dreams of the annihilation of Israel. Big media is not giving you the story. Instead they have the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. group on, CAIR, calling in from Egypt (and mis-identifying Ahmed Rehab of CAIR as a “democracy activist”). And that was FOX. It’s that bad.

I don’t believe Obama “lost Egypt”; I believe he kicked it to the curb.

FP: Pamela Geller, thank you for joining Frontpage Interview.

And we encourage all of our readers to get their hands on Ms. Geller’s book, co-written with Robert Spencer, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.

Muslim Brotherhood: Obama is a Muslim Brother Quote #

How are Barack Hussein Obama, the global Muslim Brotherhood (MB) network, the Black Panther Party (BPP), the Black Liberation Army (BLA), Black Liberation theology, the Weather Underground (WU), the anti-Apartheid movement, and Kenyan and American politics all interconnected?

El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) was assassinated nearly 46 years ago, on Feb. 21, 1965, because of his attempt to internationalize the African American struggle for self-determination.

Malcolm would have been 86 years old on May 19, 2011. Africans in New York City have made a pilgrimage to Malcolm’s gravesite every year since Feb. 21, 1966. While it is unlikely that U.S. President Barack Obama will acknowledge Malcolm’s joining the ancestors, people from Cape Town to Nova Scotia and Brazil to Brixton definitely will.

Unlike other U.S. presidents, President Obama knows who Malcolm was and what he stands for. Like many males with African roots, President Obama was moved by Malcolm’s life story. A cursory reading of his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” will prove this point.

President Obama has real African roots. He is a member of the Luo people of East Africa. The Luo are an ethnic group in Kenya, Eastern Uganda and Northern Tanzania. The Luo are the third largest ethnic group (13 percent) in Kenya, after the Kikuyu (20 percent) and the Luhya (17 percent). The Luo and the Kikuyu inherited the bulk of political power in the first years following Kenya’s independence in 1963.

When Malcolm visited Africa in 1964, he visited Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It was during that trip that he met with Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta. At this time (1964-1966) Obama’s Uncle, Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga ODINGA (b. 1911 d. Jan. 20, 1994), was the Vice President of Kenya. On the same trip, Malcolm also visited Ugandan President Dr. Milton Obote and President Julius K. Nyerere and Muhammad Babu of Tanzania. Babu, Malcolm and Leroi Jones (now Amiri Baraka) held a meeting during this period in New York City. Malcolm talked about meeting President Kenyatta and it was clear he was also acquainted with Kenya’s Vice President, Obama’s Uncle, Oginga ODINGA.

BLA member, co-conspirator with Weather Underground members in the Brink’s Robbery (Oct. 1981, NY), Muslim Black nationalist, and self-proclaimed NEW AFRICAN Prisoner of War, Sekou Mgobogi Abdullah ODINGA (born Nathaniel Burns) was greatly influenced by the writings of Malcolm X (a.k.a. El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz). According to the Black Panther Party, Malcolm X was assassinated because he attempted to internationalize the AFRICAN American struggle for self-determination. Until very recently, detractors of Malcolm X have been led to believe that he was assassinated because he preached RACISM, BLACK SUPREMACY, ANTI-SEMITISM, and VIOLENCE.

In 1970, the BLA sent ODINGA to Algeria to help set up the international section of the BLACK PANTHER PARTY (BPP). After a split in the BLACK PANTHER PARTY caused by the FBI’s counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) occurred, ODINGA decided to come back to the U.S. to continue “the struggle” which he did until his capture in October of 1981. ODINGA is presently serving out a 40-year prison sentence in Florence, CO for his role in the Brink’s Robbery. ODINGA said the following about the BLA’s motivation for their involvement in the Brink’s Robbery. ODINGA’s organization [the BLA] was “fighting for the liberation and self-determination of black people in this country.” ODINGA testified that the killings were suitable because the three victims had interfered with the “EXPROPRIATION”. In ODINGA’s view, the theft of money was morally justified because those funds “were robbed through the slave labor that was forced on them and their ancestors.”

On Sept. 21, 1981, the office of the Eastern Rugby Union (ERU) in Schenectady, New York was bombed. The bombing was related to the fact that the ERU was the chief sponsor of a three-game American tour by the South AFRICAN (under Apartheid) national rugby team, the Springboks. In an article written by the associated press published Oct. 22, 1981, authorities specified that the bombing of the office was linked to the radical Weather Underground (WU) group.

On Sept. 26, 1981, a group of anti-Apartheid protesters from New York, members of whom belonged to the Weather Underground (WU) (or WU splinter groups) showed up at John F. Kennedy Airport to protest the departure of the Springboks, back to South AFRICA. The group of protestors were: Timothy Blunk (“Blonk”), Donna Borup, Margot Pelletier, Mary (“Marcy”) Patten, and Eve Rosahn. An article which appeared in Newsday gives the clearest description of the violent acid-throwing incident at the airport and named the protestors. Of the protestors who were named, Blunk, Rosahn, and Borup have been shown to be members of the WU.

Newsday, Monday, September 28, 1981, Nassau Edition, page 7

October 20, 1981, members of the WU and the Black Liberation Army (BLA) were together involved with pulling off the Brinks Robbery. In this incident, robbers ambushed a Brink’s armored car at a shopping plaza in Nanuet (Rockland County) NY. In the course of the robbery and the attempts to escape, the robbers killed one Brinks guard and two police officers. BLA members involved in the Brink’s Robbery included Jeral Wayne Williams (a.k.a. Mutulu Shakur), Donald Weems (a.k.a. Kuwasi Balagoon), Samuel Smith, Nathaniel Burns (a.k.a. Sekou Mgobogi Abdullah ODINGA), Cecilio “Chui” Ferguson, and Samuel Brown (a.k.a. Solomon Bouines). WU members involved in the brinks Robbery, and who now belong to the May 19th Communist Organization, include David Gilbert (father of Kathy Boudin’s son), Samuel Brown, Judith Alice Clark, Kathy Boudin, Marilyn Buck, and Susan Lisa Rosenberg who drove the getaway car.

Newsday, Monday, September 28, 1981, Nassau Edition, page 7

In 1984, after living as a fugitive for two years, Susan Rosenberg was arrested with an accomplice while unloading 740 pounds of dynamite and weapons from a car into a New Jersey storage locker. Her accomplice was WU member Timothy Blunk who was among those at the anti-Apartheid attack on the South AFRICAN rugby team at JFK airport in Sept. of 1981. [link to]
In 1984, Kathy Boudin was convicted of felony murder for her participation in the Brinks Robbery. Boudin’s great-uncle was Louis Boudonovitch Boudin, a Marxist theorist. Her father, attorney Leonard Boudin, represented such controversial clients as Fidel Castro. Due to her incarceration, between 1984 and 2003, Boudin’s son, Chesa Boudin, was raised by fellow WU members and co-founders, Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn. (Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn launched OBAMA’s political career when they held his first political fundraiser in their living room in Chicago.) Boudin became a public health expert while in prison. She was paroled from prison in 2003. [link to]
In 1987, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour, a Black Muslim, Black nationalist, an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton was approached to raise money to fund OBAMA’s Law School education at Harvard. Fellow BPP founding member, Bobby Seale, was asked to write a letter of recommendation to Harvard Law on OBAMA’s behalf. Al-mansour enlisted Percy Sutton in the fund raising effort for OBAMA. Percy Sutton was a New York (Manhattan) Assemblyman and had served as an attorney for Malcom X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz). At the time Al-Mansour enlisted Percy Sutton’s assistance in the fund raising, he was working for one of the world’s richest men, mega-billionaire Prince Al-Waleed (Al-Walid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family and cousin of Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden.

Video proof of Percy Sutton’s and Al Mansour’s connections to the Harvard tuition paid for Obama:

The Arab name taken by BLA member and WU co-conspirator, Nathaniel Burns, upon his conversion to Islam, was Sekou Mgobogi Abdullah ODINGA. The name ODINGA refers to Barack Hussein OBAMA II’s uncle, Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga ODINGA (b. 1911 d. Jan. 20, 1994), who was the Vice President of Kenya in the Jomo Kenyatta administration (1964-1966). The Kenyatta regime was one of the most corrupt and violent organizations in AFRICA. Malcom X met with Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta on a trip he took to AFRICA in 1964 on which he visited Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. These three AFRICAN countries happen to be nations in which the AFRICAN OBAMA/ODINGA Luo tribe has its greatest representation. The Arab name Abdullah was taken by BLA member and WU co-conspirator, Nathaniel Burns, in honor of the leader of radical Muslim extremists in Kenya, Shiekh Abdullah Abdi.
Barack Hussein OBAMA II’s grandfather, Hussein Onyango OBAMA (b. 1895 d. 1979), visited Europe and India, and afterward lived for a time in Zanzibar where he converted from Christianity to Islam. Hussein Onyango OBAMA was tried on charges of political sedition and membership in a banned organization, the Kenya Land Freedom Army, for his involvement in the Kenyan independence movement (the Mau Mau uprising) and was jailed by the British for two years beginning in 1949 in Kenya’s Kamiti Prison.

Barack Hussein OBAMA II’s father, Barack Hussein OBAMA I (b. April 4, 1936 d. Nov. 24, 1982) was awarded a scholarship to study economics through an agency organized by prominent Kenyan nationalist politician, Thomas Joseph Odhiambo Mboya. Obama Sr. completed an undergraduate degree in economics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and a graduate degree at Harvard. When OBAMA Sr. returned to Kenya in 1965, his brother-in-law, Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga ODINGA, was the Vice President of the country (1964-1966). OBAMA Sr. went to work for an oil company, then landed a position as an economist in the Kenyan Ministry of Transport, and eventually became the Chief Economist for the Kenyan Ministry of Finance.
[link to]
[link to]

Also, in 1965, OBAMA Sr. published an article entitled “Problems Facing Our Socialism” in the East Africa Journal. The article harshly criticized then Kenyan President Kenyatta’s blueprint for national planning, “African Socialism and Its Applicability to Planning in Kenya.” President Kenyatta’s plan had been devised by Tom Mboya’s Ministry of Economic Planning and Development. Because the economic plan OBAMA Sr. published was critical of that of Kenyan government, President Kenyatta destroyed OBAMA Sr.’s career. Obama Sr.’s mentor, Tom Mboya, was the founder of the Nairobi People’s Congress Party, a key figure in the formation of the Kenya African National Union (KANU), and the Minister of Economic Planning and Development at the time of his death. Mboya led the delegation that framed the Kenyan constitution and negotiated Kenyan independence. He later served as an MP from Nairobi and in two cabinet positions. In July of 1969, when Pres. Kenyatta became frustrated with Vice Pres. ODINGA decided that ODINGA needed to be replaced, and tapped Mboya for the position, Mboya was immediately assassinated.

Barack Hussein OBAMA Sr. was the Uncle of current radical Kenyan Marxist, Raila Amollo ODINGA (“Your Agent for Change”). Raila Amollo ODINGA’s father and OBAMA’s Uncle (and former Kenyan Vice President), Oginga ODINGA led the Communist opposition during the Cold War and was supported by the Soviet Union. His son, Raila Amollo ODINGA (b. 1945), was educated in Communist East Germany (Magdeburg University, 1970). Raila Amolla ODINGA (Orange Democratic Party) is Barack Hussein OBAMA II’s first cousin and he is the current Prime Minister of Kenya. In 1982, Raila Amolla ODINGA was implicated in a failed coup against then Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi. Raila Amolla ODINGA’s eldest son is named after Fidel Castro and his daughter is named for Winnie Mandela.

The Prime Ministership is a position created for Raila Amollo ODINGA in a coalition government that he demanded when he refused to concede the Dec. 27, 2007 Kenyan Presidential election to the incumbent, Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki. On Dec. 30, 2007, the chairman of the Kenyan election commission declared Raila Amollo ODINGA’s opponent, incumbent Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, the winner of the Presidential election by a margin of about 230,000 votes. Raila Amollo ODINGA disputed the result. In the wake of the contested presidential election, ODINGA ordered fellow Luo tribal members and other supporters to riot to show their allegiance to him. In a particularly blood-thirsty fashion, ODINGA’s followers killed hundreds of members of their political opposition, the Kikuyu tribe, including 50 who were Pentecostal Christians. These Christians were burned to death in their church and were comprised primarily of women and children. Other Kikuyu victims were hacked to death. In all, during the post-election chaos, more than 1000 Christian churches were destroyed (Christians number 25 million in Kenya and Muslims number 3.5 million).

After a post-electoral crisis ensued that resulted in the deaths of 1,500 people and the displacement of 600,000 more, Raila Amollo ODINGA agreed to stop the violence in exchange for being named Kenya’s Prime Minister. During the election season, when Raila Amollo ODINGA’s election as Kenyan President became doubtful, Raila Amollo ODINGA promised: (a) to go easy on suspected Islamic terrorists if elected, (b) to halt the transfer of suspected Islamic terrorists to other countries for interrogation, and (c) on August 29, 2007, Raila Amollo ODINGA entered into a formal agreement, the Memorandum of Understanding, with radical Muslim extremist (AL SHABAAB) Sheikh Abdullah Abdi of the National Muslim Leaders Forum (NAMLF) whose followers are known to be part of AL QAEDA terrorist cells in Kenya. The Memorandum stated that if the radical Muslims in OBAMA/ODINGA’s district in Kenya (the (AL SHABAAB) helped Raila Amollo ODINGA gain power, once President he would instate Islamic Sharia law. As the AL SHABAAB radical Islamic extremists demanded of ODINGA (OBAMA’s choice for Presidential candidate and family member), the push for Islamic courts and Sharia law is happening in Kenya, a development that was publicized in the U.S. on February 11, 2010.

Barack Hussein OBAMA II gave almost 1 million dollars to his cousin Raila Amollo ODINGA’s election bid under the name “Friends of OBAMA”. On August 26 and 27th, 2006 at several political rallies in Nairobi and at several stops in his father’s native region of Kenya, OBAMA openly campaigned extensively in person with Raila Amollo ODINGA. This was done during OBAMA’s 2006 Senate “fact-finding visit” to Kenya, South AFRICA, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Chad. OBAMA made this trip while a sitting U.S. Senator from the state of Illinois, a congressional delegation of one. OBAMA’s bias for his first cousin and fellow Luo, Raila Amollo ODINGA, was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced OBAMA during his visit as Raila’s “stooge.” While campaigning in northeast Kenya for Raila Amollo ODINGA, collaborator with radical Islamic extremists, the AL SHABAAB, OBAMA was photographed as a SOMALI elder, in full Muslim regalia. This is especially troubling for the following reasons. AL QAEDA has been working with SOMALI radical Islamic extremists and radical Islamic extremist SOMALI Kenyans inside Kenya since the early 1990s. In fact, southern SOMALIA is where the threat of terrorism and support for Islamic extremism is the greatest.

Ironically, on August 28, 2006, while in Kenya, OBAMA gave a speech at the University of Nairobi in which he informed the citizens of the Kenyan nation that ethnic-based (Luo, Kikuyu, Kamba and Maasi ethnic tribes) politics must stop because freedom is jeopardized by public corruption. Kenyans vote along tribal lines with the winners, from the more populous groups, handing out patronage only to members of their own tribe.

“Senator rebukes Kenya’s corruption” [link to]

This action, OBAMA supporting his cousin Raila Amollo ODINGA’s election to the Kenyan Presidency, while ODINGA is being supported by radical Islamic extremists, the AL SHABAAB, was, in fact, aiding and abetting our enemy, radical Muslim extremists, such as AL QAEDA. Thus, OBAMA committed a treasonous act. It is a treasonous act because although cooperation between AL QAEDA and the AL SHABAAB is relatively recent, AL QAEDA has been working with SOMALI radical Islamic extremists and radical Islamic extremist ethnic SOMALI Kenyans inside Kenya since the early 1990s. According to U.S. intelligence reports, bin Laden sent Islamic extremists to Somalia (which borders Kenya) in 1991-1992 to help the SOMALI Islamic radical group al-Ittihad al-Islamiya (Islamic Unity, or AIAI) to organize an armed militia, establish schools and clinics, and prepare to seize power. One of the most grievous unintended consequences of the U.S. intervention in SOMALIA was that U.S. peacekeeping forces became a lightning rod for terrorist attacks from bin Laden’s terrorists and their SOMALI allies. AL QAEDA’s first known terrorist attack against Americans was the December 1992 bombing of a hotel in Aden, Yemen, used by American soldiers en route to Somalia to participate in the relief operations.

One must remember that AL QAEDA is supported by a global Islamic network called the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) which in Arabic is called the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun. An 18-page strategy paper of the Muslim Brotherhood dated Oct. 25, 1991 is entitled, “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” This strategy paper was authored by Mohamed Akram, who was a key Ikhwan leader in the U.S. at the time. Akram is now the Secretary General of the International al-Quds Foundation in Lebanon as well as Director of the al-Quds International Institute.

An overview of the MB’s strategic goal in North America is as follows:

The Ikhwan [Salafist mujahideen branch of the MB] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

Current Trends in Islamic Ideology, Vol. 6

Thus, patriotic Americans must remain vigilant. “In wholly sharia-based countries such as Iran, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia, there is little distinction between religion and state, leaving no room for liberal democracy. The institution of elections might be maintained, but this will inevitably be an illiberal system without dissent, individuation, or critical thinking.”

Current Trends in Islamic Ideology, Vol. 6

Many of those who are members of the Muslim Brotherhood USA are Arabs in America, while some are Arab-Americans. The Black Muslim Brotherhood in the USA is a branch of the MB USA and includes a number of Black Liberationist ministers such as Obama’s minister in Chicago, Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ, and some members of their congregations. Members of the MB USA and the Black Muslim Brotherhood (in the form of the Black Panther Party and the Black liberation Army and various other groups) can be radical Islamic Extremists in the sense that they desire more power, and this, in turn, requires the economic and political systems in America to be changed.

One must also remember that OBAMA’s family on both sides (OBAMA and ODINGA) is rooted in the sociopolitical tumult of the last 60 years leading up to Kenya’s break from great Britain and its attempts to be a powerful player on the African and worldwide stage. And. with a President of the USA and a Vice President of Kenya in the family OBAMAs and ODINGAs in Kenya, the USA, and points elsewhere would have to be heady with a skewed sense of empowerment.

Lastly, what effect has the emergence of OBAMA and his ideology had on Black Americans? One perspective is available by reading articles that are posted on the
Black Educator website. The mission of the website is stated as:

“News, analysis, resources and documents that help us advance ‘Education for Liberation’. In addition, we provide critical analysis of racism and CAPITALISM
in all their ugly forms.”

The Black Educator website also displays a clock and a quote from Malcolm X which reads, “Time will tell…”

In light of the Black Educator website’s stated mission, commentary written by S. E. Anderson that accompanied an article written just last year (Feb. 15, 2010) is worthy of attention and is re-printed in its entirety below:

Sun, Feb 14, 2010

NOTE: The late Black sociologist, E. Franklin Frazier, is turning over his grave everyday. When he published “The Black Bourgeoisie,” he hoped that Blackfolk would take heed and struggle not to become sucked up into the capitalist vortex of individualism, greed and false patriotism. Following him shortly thereafter was his student, Dr Nathan Hare with a scathing book: “The Black Anglo Saxons”. It further warned us of the dangers of a rising Black middleclass full of itself and pampered by those white capitalist rulers of the 60’s and 70’s. It is clear now, some 40 to 50 years later that many of us did not take a serious listen to either of the Brothers!

Now we are stuck with a Congressional Black Carcass hellbent on sucking up to the worst of Big Corporate America for some chumpchange in their individual pockets and nanoprestige while 95% of Black America worsens under depression conditions.

To make matters worse, we have a Black president who not only ignores the CBC, but ignores the worsening plight of Black America. And rationalizes this dismissal of our particular plight by harking back to that other “charismatic” prez- JFK. Obama believes- as John F Kennedy said back in 1963- “The rising tide (of economic recovery) lifts all boats (including Blackfolks’ boat).” Prez Obama is using this concept as his centerpiece for quelling Black anger/dissent among his more concerned Black elements– including, ironically, Jesse Jackson.
For it was the young Jesse Jackson who responded to JFK by saying that Blackfolk’s boat was full of holes at the bottom of the economic sea.

It is clear that we have no option but to continue to fight for Reparations, Liberation and the death of Capitalism- no matter how Black its face.
