...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.

It would probably be very instructive to comb through some of the old FReeper archives on the matter one of these days. One thing is certain..the 20% of Americans who identify with left-wing communism and marxism mean to force the majority of this country to accept their ‘plans’ for the United States by force if neccessary. I’ve never seen it this bad in all of my 50 years on this planet.
This is a BRILLIANT ARTICLE.
Nothing less, it should be required reading for EVERYONE.
Wow. Those of you already familiar with Angelo Codevilla will hardly be surprised by the depth of his insights or the breadth of his knowledge. And yet, he has captured the essence of Barack Obama in quite a unique fashion, by reference to the universe in which he was raised, the (known) facts of his upbringing and painstakingly logical suppositions beyond that which we can know for certain.
All of which leads to a brilliant summation in which Obama is confirmed to be that which many of us have long known: an artificial man of rootless parentage, radical influences, and intellectual pretension; one whose emotional attachment to the country he now leads is as superficial as the campaign that helped elect him.
I think the first tip off that FReepers got were Ann Dunhams connections to CIA funded projects. When it was offered as a possibility they were pooh-poohed as being nuts and conspiracy theorists. They persevered and found little Timmy Geithner’s Daddy and stuff started adding up.
since he seems to have been reading from a teleprompter all his life, and since words certifiably his own are both few and opaque, it is most fruitful as well as relevant for us to focus on whom and what he has been following.
We'd better get a true American back in the executive leadership role, or the stain will finish us off.
This would explain why no one in a position of power is inclined to investigate zerO.
Will have to save for later.
"[It's] relevant for us to focus on whom and what he has been following. . . his character seem[s] most likely attributable to the network into which he was born . . . [it's a network of] privileges, wealth, and intellectual-social proclivities [with a] connection with the U.S. government. [It] combines upscale social norms with radical disdain for the rest of America. Barack Obama came of age through these . . .
"[He's] so upscale and so leftist that it makes him almost a foreigner to ordinary Americans . . .
"In the 1950s and '60s few cared where, say, the State Department or foundations such as Ford ended and the CIA began. [I'd say that is true.. I was following the news pretty closely by 1950. If Senator McCarthy mentioned these clowns I was not savvy enough to understand.] . . .
"[After describing how government, foundations and the like are involved, CIA and Ford for examples, in bringing about change "over there" the author brings some very interesting things.]
"[1)] The point here is that this network was formed precisely to help the careers of kindred folk, while ruining those of others, and to move the requisite money and influence unaccountably, erasing evidence that it had done so. Exercising influence abroad on America's behalfthe network's founding purposenever got in the way of playing a partisan role in American life and, of course, of taking care of its own. [My emphasis]
"[2)] . . . when Congress first authorized the U.S. government's various influence activities abroad it worried loudly and mostly sincerely that these activities might "blow back" onto American political life: The U.S. government, so went the widely accepted argument, might have to say and do all sorts of things abroad, train and deploy any number of operatives in black arts on the whole country's behalf, knowing that these activities and operatives might well be distasteful to any number of Americans at home. Because the U.S. government must not take a partisan part in U.S. domestic lifeso went the argument of an era more honest than our ownit must somehow isolate its foreign influence network from domestic life. But preventing blowback was destined to be a pious, futile wish, especially since many of those in the influence network were at least as interested in pressing their vision of social democracy on America as they were in doing it to other countries. Foremost among these was Cord Meyer, who ran CIA's covert activities in "international organizations" beginning in 1954. Between 1962 and 1975 he directed or supervised all CIA covert action. Meyer explained what he was about in his book Facing Reality (1980). [My emphasis]
"[3)] Meyer and his upscale CIA colleagues considered themselves family members of the domestic and international Left. They believed that America's competition with Soviet Communism was to be waged by, for, and among the Left. [They gave] every imaginable form of U.S. government support to persons as far to the political and cultural left as possible . . . Paradigmatic was the Congress for Cultural Freedom, which spawned and fed many "voluntary" organizations at home and abroad with U.S. influence and money. Its director, Michael Josselson, was so little distinguishable from the Communists, his leftism so anti-American, that the U.S. chapter of CCF disaffiliated in protest. Alas, CIA's fires eventually went out of control and singed American life."
[enough quoting already! I'll copy the entire rest of the article.]
It seems that I am about to copy and paste the entire rest of the article so stunning are the revelations.. THAT SENATOR MCCARTHY WAS RIGHT! Again more proof.. IMO.
As for BHO, et al. as I am wont to say:
Obama is the biological and ideological issue of 1960s spoiled brat Marxist-Alinsky campus/street revolutionary rabble.
He is an acolyte of Saul Alinsky and a devoted follower of Rules For Spoiled Brats.
I knew all about these brats.. I just didn't know how high up they were and that our tax dollars were funding them.
ah yep. The CIA covers it’s own right?
If Petraeus was for us, why would he get the job from the man who desperately wants to destroy us?
I have always believed his foremost mission and support, at his core, is for the troops. If I see anything that appears
to contradict that belief, I’ll have to sadly adjust to
his being another politician. I pray that isn’t the case.
Yes, I've seen mention of the CIA angle a time or two, but nothing this extensive, nor anywhere close to this articulate. The author has done an excellent job of making the case that Obama is a Manchurian Candidate.
So....he is a secret “W” fan?
He is creepy...awful young for veins to be showing like that...makes you wonder about his health...guess his cocktail of drugs he takes to keep him from a meltdown isn’t too good for his health. Makes one think of stroke...
"... and an Angel in the whirlwind still directs this storm"
So he’ll know what’s going on and have a “voice”? That may or may not be the reason but it would be mine.
Unfortunately any info or research was spread over several threads in posts. That does tend to make it less coherent.
Remember the scars on his head.......
We don't know why he was in Pakistan in 1981, but know it was in the company of two Islamist brothers, at a time when such travel was forbidden.
Further, we know his passport file was accessed by a subcontractor in the employ of John Brennan's The Analysis Corp.
That would be John Brennan of CIA, who was The One's first choice for DCI.
Karzai's brother, the alleged CIA asset and reputed drug smuggler, has been silenced.
India attacked--by Pakistan again?
The Pakistan which established the Taliban and housed Osama bin Laden--and welcomed The One in 1981.
Allen Dulles was in Zurich the day Lenin was placed on a sealed train by Germans for transport to Petrograd to destabilize Russia and take the pressure off--Dulles' German interests?
The game is played at a level requiring an ingrained arrogance, the whistling sibilance of history's vanguard.
This enhanced image purports to show the scar running from the top of the President's head to behind his right ear
That "W" still stops me cold.
Information on Ann Dunham's father Stanley also fell victim over the last year to the Google phenomena of self-eradicating ether for at one time one could read that he and Frank Marshall Davis lived within a few miles of each other in Seattle. It was said that Dunham followed Davis to Hawaii, both tracked by the FBI as cell members. Further, also gone to ether, Dunham was not a furniture salesman but a Boeing employee who had transferred from Wichita to Seattle. Hence, Stanley Ann was born in or near Wichita. The FBI may not have had any major reason to keep a file on a lowly furniture salesman, but Boeing starting with WWII when Stanley went to work for them is another matter.
Finally, Codevilla reminds us that S. Ann Dunham Obama Soetero spent years working in Lahore Pakistan. Recall, I'm sure we all do, that Barry went there for months or more after his brief stint at Occidental with one or more Moslem school chums. Not exactly spring break in Fort Lauderdale. (In "Monsoon" published last year, Robert Kaplan alludes to heretofore secret American attempts over the years to contain radical Islam in Indonesia, radical Islam coming from Yemen and Pakistan.) So BHO's mom was on scene when our CIA deposed Sukarno and set up Suharto in Indonesia and she was also on scene when America began propping up governments in Pakistan. Just your average do-gooder from Kansas?
Self-styled investigative journalist Wayne Madsen reports that Madelyn Dunham, the mother of Barack's mother, Ann Dunham, who became vice president of the Bank of Hawaii soon after her arrival there, was in charge of escrow accounts. Madsen's credibility is certainly checkered. But if he is correct about which department she headed, Madelyn Dunham must have supervised the accounts that the U.S. government used to funnel money to its "gray" and "black" activities throughout Asia.
Because they were the only escrow accounts at the bank? Because most of the bank's escrow accounts wouldn't have involved real estate transactions?
How much of this conclusion comes from known facts about CIA procedures and how much is a conclusion that because she handled escrow accounts and the CIA may have used the bank, that they must have used the escrow accounts she supervised?
Thanks for this. I'll read it, but it looks like he takes a few major leaps here. That doesn't mean his theories are wrong, but they're still only theories.
The point was not why he accepted, but why the job was offered.
Well this is my “take”, it makes Obama look “fair”. And Obama doesn’t have complete control yet. He still needs to look “good” and have cover. And I don’t think the military backs or accepts him. He’s got to tread carefully.
Thanks for the ping, Lucy. I’ve shared this on Facebook, too.
Do you really think I would know? Why is the sky blue?
I have always suspected it had to do with parkinson, he thought he had. It must have been something like parkinson but was corrected with brain surgery. OR in one of the homo establishments he visited often...one of those homo fights started and he ended up with a head injury. Those fights many times turns deadly.
Petraeus voted for Obama. So, is he unknowing, or in on the deal?
Yup. I've seen that mentioned before.
OR in one of the homo establishments he visited often...one of those homo fights started and he ended up with a head injury. Those fights many times turns deadly.
Yes. They do. Statistics prove that. They are very violent.
I DID read the whole thing. Very well done article! Thanks for posting it for us. I would LOVE to see this article on the front page of every major newspaper around the world, but judging from the information in this article about who is running things, a snowflake in hell stands a better chance!
“A big reason Zero sits in the White House on the verge of collapsing the US economy is because McCain never took the gloves off, except to attack those on his right.”
And, to this day, McCain defends and supports Obama at every turn.
Why do you suppose he is doing that?
THanks for pinging me - had a difficult day and haven’t read the thread yet.
Thanks, I gotta read this tomorrow.
