The hole in Ann Dunham's biography
WND ^ | SEPTEMBER 07, 2011 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 09/08/2011 1:16:07 PM PDT by RobinMasters

In the last year or so respected publishers have released four biographies by mainstream authors that feature, as a central fact, the birth of President Barack Obama to his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham (Ann), in 1961.

Given that there has been a certain controversy about the birth, one might expect that each of the books would, if not settle the controversy, at least deal with it intelligently. None of them does.

These books include a 2010 biography of the president, "The Bridge," by New Yorker editor David Remnick; a 2011 biography of Dunham, "A Singular Woman," by New York Times reporter Janny Scott; a 2011 biography of Barack Obama Sr., "The Other Barack," by Sally Jacobs of the Boston Globe; and a 2010 multi-generational biography of the Obama family, "The Obamas," by BBC journalist Peter Firstbrook.

Clearly, if Dunham had not given birth to Obama, none of these four books would have been written. Yet the authors are shockingly mute on the subject of Dunham's pregnancy and Obama's birth.

University of Hawaii records show that Dunham left school at the end of January in 1961, and subsequent divorce records suggest a Maui wedding on Feb. 2. This is where the paper trial ends.

As to the Maui wedding, everyone writes with uncertainty. Jacobs says only, "The couple apparently had a quiet civil ceremony." Scott writes that the wedding took place "reportedly on the island of Maui." (Italics mine)

In Remnick's account, Dunham tells no one about the wedding, but in Firstbrook's imaginative account, the parents accompany the happy couple on the trip to Maui. As Obama has conceded, there are no wedding photos and no documents.

Baby Obama sure doesn’t look anything like his alleged daddy. Not a bit!

Not one of these authors provides the slightest hint of what she may have done or where she may have gone between Feb. 2 and Aug. 4 of 1961.

Because it would ruin the narrative if they showed that she was in Kenya.

There is an effort to obtain original newspaper Birth announcement not just microfiche,

The Birther Summit has increased its offer to purchase an original copy of a Honolulu newspaper to $10,000! An original copy of the August 13, 1961 edition of The Honolulu Advertiser or the August 14, 1961 edition of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin will earn the first bearer $10,000. Those are the editions of the newspapers in which the purported birth announcement of Barack Obama appeared, and while we understand that the announcement's inclusion in those newspapers would not be conclusive proof that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii (as there were circumstances that would have allowed for them to appear without a Hawaii birth actually occurring),

the only evidence anyone has actually seen of the birth announcements has been copies of microfiche versions of those newspapers, and they contain suspicious anomalies. As with the vault version of Obama's birth certificate (which has still not been forensically verified to be a valid document, or even to exist), we would like an opportunity to inspect one of these actual newspapers rather than purported representations of them. link

Even if they were “married” on Maui hasn’t it been proven that Obama, Sr. was already married in Kenya to another woman?

That would make the alleged Dunham-Obama marriage void, ab initio.

[As to those "officials in Hawaii," one of them was Tim Adams. . .senior elections clerk for the City and County of Honolulu. . .

In his recently posted Masters thesis, Adams repeats what he told the media in 2010 before being gagged by his university and menaced by the Obots and their media allies. "There is no hospital record of [Obama's] birth in Honolulu and the Hawaii Department of Health told us in the Elections Office that there was no birth certificate."]

Would like to see at least ONE relative, that Obama favors. Meantime; he looks more like Malcolm X than did Malcolm himself. (And not unlike Osama BL, as well.)

Whatever is his story; and WHOEVER this man is; the TRUTH shall out; and I just hope it is 'sooner' rather than later'; albeit; already too long and late.

"Not one of these authors provides the slightest hint of what she may have done or where she may have gone between Feb. 2 and Aug. 4 of 1961. Nada. Not a word.

I can speculate that there was a honeymoon in Kenya to ask for Barack Obama Sr's father's blessing for the marriage. It didn't go so well and Stanley Ann and baby Barack were sent directly to Seattle in time for the fall classes at the University of Washington.

However, it isn’t clear Obama’s parents were married, since official records have never been produced showing a legal ceremony took place. No wedding certificate or photograph of a ceremony for Dunham and Obama Sr. has ever been found or published.

In his book “Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage,” former Time magazine contributing editor Christopher Andersen elaborates: “There were certainly no witnesses (to the alleged civil-marriage ceremony on Maui in 1961 between Obama’s parents) – no family members were present, and none of their friends at the university had the slightest inkling that they were even engaged.”

Andersen further quoted Abercrombie as saying that “nobody” was invited to the wedding ceremony.

Obama himself, on page 22 of his autobiography “Dreams from My Father,” wrote of his parents’ wedding: “In fact, how and when the marriage occurred remains a bit murky, a bill of particulars that I’ve never quite had the courage to explore. There’s no record of a real wedding, a cake, a ring, a giving away of the bride. No families were in attendance; it’s not even clear that people back in Kansas were fully informed. Just a small civil ceremony, a justice of the peace. The whole thing seems so fragile in retrospect, so haphazard.”

President Obama’s birth story is further complicated by the fact that when Barack Obama Sr. arrived in Hawaii as a 23-year-old in September 1959, he already had been married since age 18 to a Kenyan woman named Kezia Aoko.

Obama Sr. ultimately had four children with Aoko, and there is no evidence to suggest he was ever divorced from Aoko, either in Kenya before he left for Hawaii or in Hawaii prior to the alleged marriage with Dunham.

For full disclosure sake...last weekend I was going thorugh some stuff in my safe and came across my wife and I’s marriage certificate. We were married in Maui in December 2001.

Alvin Onaka signed our certificate with his signature stamp, sadly it did not include a smiley face in the “A”.

No matter. In the age of Obama, the media "debunkers" have turned their sights not on the powers that be but on those who would challenge those powers.

I wish Jack Cashill had a more attentive editor.

That the Supreme Court, and specifically Chief Justice John Roberts who swore Obama in, has allowed this farce to go on really stinks of a sell-out somewhere.

Is there not some sort of a Sorosian limit? Or can everything, save death, be bartered?

That would make the alleged Dunham-Obama marriage void, ab initio.

But that fact is totally immaterial to the argument at hand: whether Barack Obama, Jr. is "a natural-born citizen".

Even if Obama, Sr. was a bigamist, it would not impact Obama, Jr's citizenship -- if he was, indeed, born in the USA.
