...But there was never anything silly, nor light-hearted, nor casual, about Barack Obama's efforts to keep the public's eyes from the basic facts of his life, from birth to his candidacy for president. On the contrary, this opacity is a deliberate policy. Why? The presumptive answer, absent testimony from those involved, is to ensure that real facts interfere as little as possible with the image and narrative that he and his associates have carefully crafted for him. Distinguishing between reality and that narrative would require above all a skeptical attitude, sure to be characterized by Democrats and the media in the most derogatory terms.
According to hagiography, Barack Obama was born to a hippy girl from an insignificant family and raised in poor circumstances, out of which he rose through brilliance. Yet his haughty demeanor, his stilted language when off the teleprompter, his cultural likes and dislikes, bespeak an upbringing in an environment at once so upscale and so leftist that it makes him almost a foreigner to ordinary Americans....
Consistent with the Barack Obama we know, however, are his real family, his real upbringing, and his real choices of profession and associates. His mother's parents, who raised him, seem to have been cogs in the U.S. government's well-heeled, well-connected machine for influencing the world, whether openly ("gray influence") or covertly ("black operations"). His mother spent her life and marriages, and birthed her children, working in that machine. For paradigms of young Barack's demeanor, proclivities, opinions, language, and attitudes one need look no further than the persons who ran the institutions that his mother and grandparents servede.g., the Ford Foundation, the United States Information Agency, and the Central Intelligence Agency....It is here, with these people and institutions, that one should begin to unravel the unknowns surrounding him.

Read the whole thing.
His use of the phrase: ‘folks who.......’ tells me all I need to know.
We are ‘folks who fit into little boxes’ - in his world, we are not individuals but samples, specimens, categorized by income, race and usefulness.
Wow! I am reading this now. BTTT!
It’s very good. Recently someone I thought I respected described Obama to me as a “disadvantaged black kid” from Hawaii. I could NOT believe the ignorance! I have forwarded the article, of course!
thanks for the post
Interesting to see what someone from an Intelligence background thinks.
very interesting reading
armchair reading ping
Seems we have a nasty habit of educating OUR Enemies.
Outstanding article. Thanks for posting it.
bump for a closer read this evening...
"That class knows about America only that it must be changed, and looks at the vast majority of Americans the way carpenters look at warped pieces of lumber. Barack Obama is neither more nor less than its product and agent."
Add to that the fact that Obama is a classic, text book example of a malignant narcissist. He is a man with no real self-assurance hence always afraid of criticism, a pathological liar with no conscience, and possessing absolutely no empathy for anyone. He is a hollow, pliable imitation of a man who is without courage and unable to function without applause and adoration. This makes him susceptible to and easily manipulated by those who use him for their own goals while pretending to adore him...as long as they keep pretending.
