Surprising Facts We Learned About Barack Obama's Mother (She worked in the US Embassy??)
Business Insider ^ | 04/20/2011 | Business Insider

Posted on 04/20/2011 1:00:02 PM PDT by The Magical Mischief Tour

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."

According to them fact number 4 she hated working in the US Embassy in Indonesia...

Is this true she was on the Embassy Staff?

I am thinking Stanley is not even the mom, as she was in Washington State in college during the birth time.

Hence the irregularities.

That is sad.. this woman abandoned her mixed race child and left him with grandparents to raise.

Well, if you don't describe one of Barry's largest accomplishments in office is working on his golf swing you will not know the politician.

Dunham ain't white?
Not from Kansas anymore?
Barry don't play golf?

If Barry knew his mother worked at a US Embassy, you know he would have worked it into a stump speach.

2. According to Hawaiian law any person with a common ancestor with Barry can request Obama’s BC. George looks like he could use the money...

"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."

He's right. Now if you describe Barry as a "radical leftist politician who likes golf," you'd pretty much have him nailed.

I read she had a PhD and worked for the CIA implementing microfinance in Indonesia and other countries...one of which was Pakistan. It appears to be the same program Soros, Jeffrey Sachs, Joe Stiglitz et al outlined and had implemented in the Balkans. They’ve got the same programs here as well in Shorebank etc., despite the fact that the program doesn’t work.

I wonder if Ann from her embassy days ever worked with the CIA, or better yet was found out to be a spy on the Soviet payroll?

Now wouldn't that be a hoot?

“How do you give up USA citizenship? Go to the embassy of the country you are in.”

I doubt a person would be able to keep their job at an American Embassy if they were to renounce their US citizenship.

Too bad some rich conservative doesn't offer George some serious $$$ to do just that. (Maybe we should take up a collection.) Considering brother "We Are Our Brothers' Keepers" Barry hasn't given him dime one

Funny that Obama’s never mentioned it. Now look up how you go about giving up your US citizenship. You go to the Embassy in the country you are in...which would be Indonesia.

Well, of course.

However, embassy employees who do not hold US citizenship do not have jobs that above lower level duties.

If a US citizen were to renounce their citizenship while working at an embassy, they would get run off very quickly.

And such an action would have no impact on their children.

She was a total badass

"The label [of white mother from Kansas] obscures an extraordinary story -- of a girl with a boy’s name who grew up in the years before the women’s movement, the pill and the antiwar movement; who married an African at a time when nearly two dozen states still had laws against interracial marriage; 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; who lived more than half her adult life in a place barely known to most Americans, in the country with the largest Muslim population in the world; who spent years working in villages where a lone Western woman was a rarity; who immersed herself in the study of blacksmithing, a craft long practiced exclusively by men; who, as a working and mostly single mother, brought up two biracial children; 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; and then died at 52, never knowing who or what he would become."

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

Maybe so but she probably loved the job when it gave her timely “access” certain records.

But if she worked at any US Embassy I'm sure it was as a Soviet Communist spy.

Her parents were communist sympathizers and as well as close Dunham friend and Barry mentor Frank Marshall Davis.

Nothing new. She worked for USAID out of the Embassy teaching English. Translation, she was a CIA asset helping the Suharto coup.

“Obama Sr was already married when he knocked up a minor named Dunham.”

Barry bears almost no resemblance to Sr, except skin color. On the other hand, take a look at some pics and videos of Malcolm X. The similarities of physical characteristics, mannerisms and oratory are absolutely striking. Just sayin...

Someone a while back said the fact she met Obama Sr in Russian language classes means she was CIA. Don’t know, but it would explain somethings in a different light, obviously.

There are many unanswered questions here ..like his grandparents had communist ties .. and one particular black communist (forgot his name) had a large impact on OB ... Then there is the name change.. now knowing his mother worked in an embassy one need to seriously ask is some hidden force has governed his life and put an average student in private schools and Yale..he had a political godfather somewhere

Here's another constant, no doubt, omitted from the book: Dunham converted to Islam.

Her first 'husband' was a moslem and so was her second one. Under Sharia Law, it's mandatory for the wife/concubine of a moslem, if she isn't already one, to convert to Islam.

This is one of the reason you see few images or hear little about Dunham. Somewhere there's a picture of her in full moslem garb. CNN, The NYT and others in the LSM are doing everything in their power to keep that image from the American people. . . especially the birthers.

In 1970-72 an American woman named Harriet [a secretary?] worked at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta and was very active in Indonesian Christian women upper class society circles.

She helped many Indonesian Catholic students escape legally to USA after the bloodbath when universities there were closed to Christians and all the Christian girls were getting gang-raped in the streets by the muslims, which also happened again in 1998.

This is from my Indo friends whose memories I am trying to pry open.

There are probably thousands of Indo`s in their 60`s in the USA from these years who would probably remember Dunham in the Embassy, especially if she had a black kid.
