BIRTHER ALERT: 8 Surprising Facts We Learned About Barack Obama's Mother NYT Magazine Feature
Business Insider ^ | 04/20/2011 | Noah Davis

Posted on 04/20/2011 9:22:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Stanley Ann Dunham, better known as President Barack Obama's mother, passed away in 1995 before seeing her son become the most powerful man in the world.

In this weekend's New York Times Magazine, Dunham gets a long profile adapted from Janny Scott's forthcoming book, A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother.

The article paints a portrait of a complex woman who traveled to Indonesia with her second husband, battled the customs while raising her son and new daughter, and eventually returned to Hawaii.

As Scott writes, "To describe Dunham as a white woman from Kansas turns out to be about as illuminating as describing her son as a politician who likes golf."

The President described his mother as "single constant in my life."

There once was a toddler named Barry
whose father was drunken and scary.
His mom married twice
so she put him on ice.
Poor grandma, ‘twas all she could carry.

I thought his mother was just a “typical white person” who was also a communist.

Does this tell us anything about where Obama was born or who his REAL father was, or who his LEGAL father was at the time of his birth?

The Business Insider article is a puff piece based on an unusually fawning (even for them) puff piece in the NYT.

I imagine if someone actually read the Dunham biography with a critical eye, there may be some things of real interest there.

Personally, I wouldn't have the stomach for it.

Oh lad Barry went on a vacation in Hawaii,
On election eve to Hawaii he pulled a all nighty.
To see if old nanny passed away finally,
Her ashes in the ocean, and make sure no one was spying,
That his cert is safe in hiding.

Way back when I met her she was hanging around with a bunch of CIA folks, various sorts of other kinds of federal police, right wing Dutch Colonials and so on.

You should tell us who the Commies were ~ it's probably not too late eh.

who believed her son in particular had the potential to be great; who raised him to be, as he has put it jokingly, a combination of Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and Harry Belafonte;

Missed two out of three.

He may be intelligent, but he's hardly Eistein
Gandhi? Two words : Moonmar Gadaffy
Harry Belafonte? Well, he is a racist, commie loving, asshole.

What did we learn about Obama and his mother?

Well, Obama could have been named Target because of the number of people that had a shot at him.
His Mother's legs could have been issued a pilot's license because of all the time in the air they had.
We know the best part of Obama must have run down his mother's legs...

No need click:

1. She was a total badass
2. Obama learned to deal with racism in Indonesia
3. She had a large domestic staff in her house
4. She hated working at the U.S. Embassy
5. She probably gave birth to Obama’s half-sister without stethoscope, gloves, or gown
6. She refused to conform to Indonesian society
7. She may have discipline (sic) her son by spanking him
8. Obama remembers her strength but also wonders where he would have been without his grandparents
9. So did she give birth in Kenya? Trump thinks so

Another amazing fact:

She was so homely she had to ‘sneak-up-on-a-glass-of-water-to-drink-it’ !!!

THAT'S why she thumbed her nose at ‘tradition’ and went off with these loser guys, abroad.

It should never be forgotten that it was the Clintons who gave birth to the "birther" movement.

Early in the last presidential campaign, in August, 2008, Bill Clinton was asked if he thought Obama was qualified to be president.
Clinton's rather odd, cryptic reply:

"The constitution sets qualification for the president. And then the people decide who they think would be the better president."

Bill Clinton made this reference to the Constitution shortly after America's latest fad, the "community organizer" from Chicago, popped up out of nowhere and stole his wife's destiny by winning, in rather sleazy fashion, the Democrat nomination for President.

It has been my opinion since that time that the Clintons know something, and that it was they who quite deliberately fanned the flames of controversy over Obama's birth. Remember, it was a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter, Philadelphia lawyer Philip Berg, who launched *the first* Obama eligibility lawsuit. That lawsuit was filed in August of 2008, shortly after Bill Clinton made the curious reference to the Constitution when asked if he thought Obama was qualified to be President. Coincidental timing? Sure it was.

Wealthier than her own rather well to do family?

She hardly seems a social climber or a “gold digger” when she doesn’t seem to have married for wealth or profited much (if at all) by her marriages to two different men from third world nations.

I don’t think she got half her Indonesian husbands assets upon divorce - for example - and she ended her life without any assets.

Read the articles.

This clarifies that indeed, Obama had servants when he was a kid. There were two female servants and a cook and a house boy.

And it shows....he can't do a damn thing....

P.S. Daddy No. 2 made his money in OIL.

You are 100% spot on. Whatever there is to know. Those 2 know it. They are constrained by their Party since it is the source of their wealth and the keeper of their own secrets no doubt. When the party cast it's lot with Barry they were forced to grudgingly fall into line.

I am sure the Clintons didn’t only inspect Republican’s FBI files, they know all about Obama.

Why didn’t they go after him more forcibly?

They tried, remember the blowback they got when they floated the info that O might have dealt drugs?

They were stymied by the media, imho.

The Clintons are constrained by the same cabal that allowed them and Obama to get the POTUSA and also go along with Bush1 and Bush 2 towards their new world order. The cabal is much more than Chicago and Soros even the Rockerfellers.

We seem to know a lot about Barry’s black side of the family. Is there not a aunt, uncle, cousin or even second cousin on the Dunham side that will claim him? Where the hell did these people from?

Interesting ... .She claimed to have used a belt on him when he richly deserved it.

he says she never resorted to physical punishment ...

maybe his mind is gone from the drugs, but I would think she was telling the truth and he is forgetting his “richly deserved punishment”

"I thought his mother was just a “typical white person” who was also a communist."

Not to be picky, but I believe he said that his grandma was the typical white person. And she also happened to be a communist but then again who in his orbit wasn't?

My take on Stanley Anne Dunham was that she was an absent mother who dumped her kids off on her parents to go pursue her own life. She was a MINO (Mother in name only)

Okay, its official. declares that Obama was born at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital.

Whew, glad we cleared that up.

Here's a screen capture, in case they need to change their story later.

Well, she couldn’t have been that much of a dog that two wealthy MARRIED her. I don’t think I have ever seen a pic of her but I imagine her to look like Media with Code Pink or Cindy Sheehan. She had to have had something (no nastiness please). But, in America no rich men I see had a dog for a girlfriend - just saying.

I found this comment next to picture #4 in the article:

"'I worked at the U.S. Embassy in Dja­karta for 2 horrible years,' she wrote to a friend."

I think she made a horrible mistake by NOT working for the Russian embassy. I’m sure she corrected that mistake, covertly!

RIP, my dear, May Lenin blessings are with you as they are with your son (is he, really?) who's a combination of, quote: "Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and Harry Belafonte" unquote. Any education records available. LMAO!

I believe that the Harry Belafonte comparison is definitely for his Communism and singing the Moslem call to prayer at dusk! (Click on the link below)

From the same link:

who, at 24, moved to Jakarta with her son in the waning days of an anticommunist bloodbath in which hundreds of thousands of Indonesians were slaughtered;

So what? Good riddance! World Communists slaughtered hundreds of millions throughout history. Any tears from the NYT or any other progressive media or so-called historians? Nah, NOT applicable!

More than the above number of Communists who are to subjugate this Republic will meet the same fate, facing a free, armed population, for a change, if the Communist keep nudging and pushing them to a life of enslavement.

The Clintons have their own share of skeletons they can’t afford to let out of the closet. It was a matter of keeping their mouths shut and playing along or spending the next 20 years behind bars.
