The child on the left is from an image supplied by the campaign, at a time when most of the childhood images were provided courtesy of Maya Ng. The child in the centre and on the right has been shown on the Mark Nedasandjo website and was identified as 'David'. Don't you just love it that the the three of them are identical? Now you've got triplets to worry about.

It's really quite simple when you think about it, all you need to do is tell us which one isn't like the others.

OK, in the batch here, the top row has 0 on the left, and the two to the right are of David (and part of Marks right arm).

The bottom row left one and one next to it are of 0.

To figure out who are the two on the center right and right most, I’d need to see the larger picture around each. (First guess on them is they both are of 0, but would need surrounding area )

Remind me never to let you take my children to the zoo, you would leave one behind in the monkey cage because he had a little more hair than the others.

Do you have any women in your family? Or, are you a parent? Are you a mother? Maybe you need to show the images to someone who has no idea of the subject matter, and let them find one that isn’t like the others for you...or tell you they are all the same.

PS. I think I know what’s so confusing, the boys are all wearing identical plastic ears...I only just noticed it.

Memories of Obama’s mother
This is going to sound strange, Maxine Box says, but 50 years later, she can’t forget it: Barack Obama’s mother used to crack her knuckles...

Nicole Brodeur

Seattle Times staff columnist

This is going to sound strange, Maxine Box says, but 50 years later, she can’t forget it:

Barack Obama’s mother used to crack her knuckles.”Constantly,” Box told me as we sat in her Bellevue home on the eve of Super Tuesday, talking about Stanley Dunham, the girl with the man’s name and the son who could be president of the United States.

Box, 65, was Dunham’s best friend at Mercer Island High School, where they were members of the Class of 1960.

“Obama Mama,” is how they refer to her in the school’s front office when reporters come around. The Mercer Island Reporter. The Chicago Tribune. Staffers got used to pulling out the 1960 yearbook, until it was recently misplaced.

Same with Box’s copy of the yearbook; it’s in her house somewhere.

But it doesn’t matter — the memories are still clear as day.

And Box wants to keep them that way, to somehow honor the friend who died of ovarian cancer in 1995, before she could see what her son would accomplish; that he would become one of the final two Democratic candidates in the race for president.

Politics may divide us, but a mother’s pride, well, that’s a feeling that easily crosses party lines.

“She’d be overwhelmed that he’s done what he’s done,” Box said of her friend. “To think that your child has grown up to be this fine man that so many people love. ... “

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. (She is still alive, but the Obama campaign has not made her available for interviews).

Dunham and Box were part of a close group of girls who attended football games and sock hops but didn’t really date. They listened to The Limeliters, The Kingston Trio, The Brothers Four. Their parents played cards together.

Dunham and Box walked home together after school, usually stopping at Box’s house for mint-chocolate cake before Dunham went on to the Shorewood apartments, where she lived with her parents.

“I don’t remember prolonged intellectual discussions,” Box said. “But we were all questioners. It was the feeling of the whole school. We were on the debate team, we knew about current events.”

And they felt “destined” to attend college.

Box wanted to work with children, and got a teaching degree at the University of Washington.

Stannie “was such a good student, very intellectual and above all of us. Not just thinking about boys and clothes.”

When her father took a job selling furniture in Hawaii, Dunham moved with them and enrolled in the University of Hawaii.

Not long after, Dunham wrote Box that she had met a Kenyan grad student named Barack Obama. They married and had a son.

For all the tension Dunham had with her father, Box said, her parents stood by her when her marriage fell apart a few years later.

Dunham eventually remarried an Indonesian man and moved to Jakarta. At one point, she sent her son, Barack, back to Hawaii to live with her parents for a year.

Later, Dunham worked with international relief agencies, focused on women’s development.

Box last saw her friend in 1961, when she visited Seattle on her way from Honolulu to Massachusetts, where her then-husband was attending Harvard.

“She seemed very happy and very proud,” she said. “She had this beautiful, healthy baby. I can see them right now.”

If only Box could see them together again; her friend with her son, the U.S. senator. The husband and father. The presidential candidate.

Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope” is dedicated “To my Mother, whose loving spirit sustains me still.”

Box has vowed to support Obama.

“And not just because of knowing his mother. I would have the same feelings. But this makes it extra special.”

Hey, bring that yearbook back!

Though Obama Had to Leave to Find Himself, It Is Hawaii That Made His Rise Possible

excerpt:

But there is an unresolved part of the story: Did Ann try to follow him to Cambridge? Her friends from Mercer Island were left with that impression. Susan Botkin, Maxine Box and John W. Hunt all remember Ann showing up in Seattle late that summer with little Barry, as her son was called.

“She was on her way from her mother’s house to Boston to be with her husband,” Botkin recalled. “[She said] he had transferred to grad school and she was going to join him. And I was intrigued with who she was and what she was doing. Stanley was an intense person . . . but I remember that afternoon, sitting in my mother’s living room, drinking iced tea and eating sugar cookies. She had her baby and was talking about her husband, and what life held in store for her. She seemed so confident and self-assured and relaxed. She was leaving the next day to fly on to Boston.”

But as Botkin and others later remembered it, something happened in Cambridge, and Stanley Ann returned to Seattle. They saw her a few more times, and they thought she even tried to enroll in classes at the University of Washington, before she packed up and returned to Hawaii.

Eric Bolling: Fox Guest Will Help Obama’s Brother Legitimize Non-Profit Charity by Frances Martel | 4:36 pm, May 14th, 2011

Fox Business host Eric Bolling may have begun his investigation into Abon’go Malik “Roy” Obama‘s charity organization expecting to bust some corruption, but after a 40-minute series of conversations with the President’s brother, Bolling seems at least partially convinced that all the elder Obama needs to keep his charity in gear is a bit of organizational guidance.

Bolling began the investigation into the Kenyan “Barack H. Obama Organization” earlier this week, sensing that there was a possibility the organization’s mission statement– to provide food and potable water to Kenyan villages– was not being lived up to. Having found that the organization made something within the vicinity of $250,000 but hadn’t legally filed in America as a non-profit, Bolling called Abon’go Obama up on the phone and demanded answers. He told Martha McCallum (filling in for Greta van Susteren last night) that, while initially very defensive, the President’s half-brother eventually softened up, and that Bolling himself was torn as to whether the operation he led eas of a corrupt nature.

“We talked about growing up with Barack, we talked about his father,” Bolling explained, repeating what he had on his program, Follow the Money, that the elder Obama believed “America keeps calling [my mother] a prostitute,” a claim Bolling still didn’t really understand. Nonetheless, he noted that “the man was very open with me and forthcoming” and that in discussing the legal gray area surrounding his organization, Obama replied that he would file the form if someone helped him and that he wasn’t even aware he had to do so. “If you help me, I will file it,” Bolling said Obama told him, and that, in fact, one of the guests on his show offered to help.

While still not satisfied with the explanation, Bolling appeared much more willing to give the President’s brother a pass on this one, or at least help him clear his name.

--------------

Shame Bolling didn't ask Malik just when and where it was that he 'grew up with Barack' because the Barack we know grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia, didn't he? Sounds like there must have been some other Barack he grew up with in Kenya.

fantasywriter defended me on this thread from a vicious ad hominem attack by a troll, for which I am grateful.

So you are also the one who goes by "chicken head"?

I have not seen Corsi retract or express doubts about his extensive investigation proving that Stanley Ann was in Seattle for the 1961-62 school year. Link please to any such retraction or doubts.

Sorry, I like David, cannot give you a link to any of my personal communications with him. Are you really that ignorant?

Talk is cheap...

Then why haven't you contacted him yourself? Are you afraid of the truth? Why has the fantasy writer attempted to obtain the University of Hawaii transcripts? Afraid of the truth?

...is the equivalent of inadmissible hearsay and cannot be substantiated in court...

LMAO, when did this forum become a courtroom?

I assume you meant to write NOT attempted to obtain the U of H transcripts.

There is no need to contact Corsi because there is no credible indication (certainly not provided by you) that Corsi changed his mind about Stanley Ann being in Seattle from Fall 1961 through Spring 1962.

IIRC, the U of H detailed transcripts which include the UW course credits have been put up on the web and corroborate the letter from the UH registrar. UW transcript from the late 1970’s confirms the UH transcript and the Mercer HS graduation in 1960.

“Hey, bring that yearbook back!”

All:

Fred Nerks’ Mal-Val Narrative posits that Stanley Ann did not spend her senior year at Mercer HS but was somewhere else. So this tantalizing tidbit questioning whether Ann in in the Mercer yearbook as a senior is being offered by FN to pique the curiosity of the uninformed and unwary. Stanley Ann was never in HI until 1963, according to Mal-Val. Of course, this claim is delusional!

I don’t know who FN thinks would still be on this thread that would fall for this nonsense.

“Shame Bolling didn’t ask Malik just when and where it was that he ‘grew up with Barack’ because the Barack we know grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia, didn’t he? Sounds like there must have been some other Barack he grew up with in Kenya.”

All:

Here is another nonsense tidbit from FN intended to pique the interest of the unwary FReeper and open the way to future grooming for the Mal-Val cult!

FN grabs an out-of-context quote from Malik implying that he “grew up” with Barry. But diligent students of the Mal-Val Narrative will recognize that Mal-val posits that the boy named Barack H. Obama II that Malik “grew up” with in Kenya is NOT the boy who grew up to be POTUS Barry, but rather the boy who grew up to be Roman Obama...who Mal-Val posits is the “darker boy” in the studio picture of the two boys, rather than Mark.

Roman Obama, according to Mal-Val, was the first BHO II and was the baby that Mary Toutonghi babysat for in Seattle, but in January 1960, NOT January 1961.

This is the narrative that awaits any FReeper unwary enough to be drawn into FN’s web of lies and distortions which FN delights in diverting FReepers with.

Any FReepers who are still in the grip of this nonsense need to ask themselves “Wouldn’t Malik notice that POTUS Barry is not the same BHO II that he grew up with in Kenya?” Have Malik and all of the the Kenyan family been bought off to protect the son of Malcolm x and Lebanese actress, Valerie Sarruf, as Mal-Val posits?

What happened to “David?”

He was killed in a motorcycle accident in Kenya in 1987 Greg.

OK, how did Zero get all the scars on his head and that huge one on his right calf? No history of a major accident in his BIO....just asking.

Exactly right. Of all the whoppers told in defense of Mal-Val, this one about Corsi super-secretly reneging on his former position & revealing it ONLY to David is the biggest. [& no, calling Dr. Corsi ‘Jerry’ doesn’t make it true. Duh.] If Corsi is an honest man—& ALL the evidence points to the FACT that he is honest, credible & of the highest personal integrity—then he wd OWE it, at a bare minimum, to those who purchased his bk to set the record straight. To sell a bk in large part on the basis of research/facts that later turned out to be false, & not tell anyone publically about it is fraud—pure & simple.

Just be aware, all readers of this thread: David is accusing Corsi of FRAUD. Corsi sold his bk in significant part on the strength of his uncovered facts disproving the myths of Dreams. Now David claims that Corsi has joined the ranks of Obama-defenders & agreed w then—& contrary to what he wrote in his bk—that SADO was NOT in Seattle in the fall of ‘61. However, Corsi hasn’t let his fans/the buyers of his bk in on this new info. He’s revealed it ONLY to David. Everyone else, Corsi has allowed to go on believing [since all of his articles & most of his interviews, in which he states these facts, are still on the web] research/evidence he now knows to be false.

Give. Me. A. Break.

To break it down, for anyone still struggling to grasp what’s going on, here’s an illustration. Suppose a leading conservative investigator uncovers PROOF of who killed the homosexual choir director from Trinity United [Obama’s home church] & also all the details as to WHY this man was murdered execution style (immediately prior to Obama’s presidential run announcement). The investigator writes a bk about it & sells quite a few copies.

Some yrs later a person on the web says, ‘No actually, the author has changed his position fundamentally on part of that bk. The touted proof is not nearly as strong as it once was.’

People search the web & find no indication that the author has changed one iota of what was written. In every available article & interview, he stands by his facts.

Who you gonna believe? If there is any question in your mind, there is no hope for you anyway. Enjoy your misperception.

There is no way to know how Obama got his scars. The records are sealed. We can speculate, but we won’t be able to say for certain unless & until his medical records are unsealed.
