...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.

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.
