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 Obamas 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?
Note: How do you give up USA citizenship? Go to the embassy of the country you are in.
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?
Oh Nooz.. did she get knocked up by a Grand Muftah or something?
a diplomatic affair.. ?
buy popcorn futures
If Barry knew his mother worked at a US Embassy, you know he would have worked it into a stump speach.
Access to get Barry a Connecticut SS#?
never mind about Ann...
let’s talk about his british Kenyan daddy who left his white wife to shag another broad in the same tribe in Kenya..
1. Obama claimed his mother was on food stamps at one point in her life. Where’s the public record on this?
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...
From what I can tell, she was the devil’s concubine. What else do you need to know?
No he looks too much like her.
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.
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.
She started in Washington in September. Bam-Bam was born in August
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
It should read:
Stanley Ann Dunham, better known as President Barack Obama's mother, passed away in 1995 before seeing her son take what use to be the most powerful position in the world.
Obama Sr was already married when he knocked up a minor named Dunham.
I believe there would be both Indonesians and Americans at the embassy in Indonesia.
battled the customs? I had heard that Sotero wanted to be westernized and Stanley wanted to be a muslim subjugated woman.
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.
And what kind of a jerk names his daughter ‘Stanley’?
These people are weird all over
expecially given that daddy was still married and the USA doesn't recognize bigamy.
Something just doesn't ring right.
His birth certificate must have his real mother’s name : Maria Skiana
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.
"The label [of white mother from Kansas] obscures an extraordinary story -- of a girl with a boys name who grew up in the years before the womens 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
“According to them fact number 4 she hated working in the US Embassy in Indonesia...”
Maybe so but she probably loved the job when it gave her timely “access” certain records.
First day of class was 15 days after the birth.
Maybe today, but not in 1961.
Her parents were communist sympathizers and as well as close Dunham friend and Barry mentor Frank Marshall Davis.
While back saw a piece about and Lil Timmy (TurboTax) Geirther’s Dad and S.A. Durham working together at some CIA front in Indonesia.
“That is sad.. this woman abandoned her mixed race child and left him with grandparents to raise. “
and she beat him for not doing his homework sent from Hawaii.
Why was homework sent from Hawaii?
Snopes says the nude photos are false so they must be real.
I didn’t know 0bama had a sister. Where the heck is she? And why is she never mentioned?
Nothing new. She worked for USAID out of the Embassy teaching English. Translation, she was a CIA asset helping the Suharto coup.
Then, perhaps, Obama was adopted in Kenya....
those are my suspicious... maybe he was adopted by the granparents and then later, their daughter Staley took care of him as her own.....
>>Obama Sr was already married when he knocked up a minor named Dunham.
right you are...the Obama’s are one F’d up family, aren’t they? They make the Kennedy’s look like the Patridge family.
“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...
I believe she has been giving interviews calling Trump crazy.
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.
Tin foil hat off
Sr. was married to several women at the same time as per African custom and acceptance. Did he marry Obama’s mother in a hut in Africa or ??????
that’s the pirate that is stealing all the US loot.
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.
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.
