Obama's sister releases memoir
Politico ^ | April 30, 2012 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 04/30/2012 11:53:37 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

Adding to the growing list of books about President Barack Obama and his family is a new memoir by his sister who was raised in Africa.

Auma Obama, who now works at CARE International in Nairobi, didn't meet Barack until the 1980s and it's unclear how much new ground the book breaks. But she did have an interesting vantage point: that of the Obama family in Africa and how her brother's political career impacted it.

In published excerpts of "And Then Life Happens," she wrote about meeting Hillary Clinton after the nasty primary race in 2008 and the media frenzy that descended on her family as Barack Obama's star rose. From the excerpts:

I had believed that I could easily deal with the media. After all, I thought, I had worked as a journalist myself when I lived in Germany. By providing my number, I had mainly wished to protect my grandmother, whom everyone called Mama Sarah, from all the media fuss. But I had not been prepared for such a flood of calls.

Because Mama Sarah was also Barack’s grandmother, everyone wanted to speak to her. They wanted her to tell them about his family, to bring to light the missing pieces of the puzzle that Barack Obama was for them. Who exactly was this black man and son of an African who had dared to aspire to the office of president of the most powerful nation in the world? Where were his roots? Who was his family?

His family tree must look like a bird nest.

I can’t keep track of all his relatives.

Excellent point.Two of his relatives are already living here illegally...at least one of whom (his aunt) is getting welfare/food stamps/free housing,etc.The other relative,"Uncle Omar", was recently arrested for drunk driving.On arrival at the police station he was asked if there was anyone he wanted to call."I think I'll call the White House" was the reply.WITH GOD AS MY JUDGE!

The Aunt - was living in public housing, as an illegal immigrant. This is most likely the result of identity fraud.

The Uncle - two social security numbers. Definite identity fraud.

Barry - what, a man whose name has changed from Dunham to Soetoro to Obama, from Barry to Barak, who travels to Africa and Pah ki stan, and lives abroad for a while....absolutely no possibility this guy has any identity issues.

She sure has observed the desire for information on Obumo Jr.
Bet she isn’t even sure who he is.

Odd how all of his relatives, siblings and all, have been raised in Africa but Barry is the ONLY one to have been born in America.

Just a lucky chance for the one who wants to be king I guess.

“I can’t keep track of all his relatives.”

That’s probably because Holder’s people can’t keep track of all the people they’ve slept with.

ping to list...

"There, on the Obama family homestead, lie the mortal remains of Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (1936–1982) and Onyango Hussein Obama (1879–1975), the father and grandfather, respectively, of the forty-fourth American president."

Auma has long been suspected (by me at least) of having been paid off to hide family knowledge Barry's birth in Kenya when she was age 2 because of her refusal to take reporter's questions about Barry's possible birth in Kenya and Mama Sara's statements to that effect...until after he leaves office, just like all the other members of the extended family. A $billion of 2008 campaign funding can buy a lot of silence, not to mention possible death threats.

Note that in her German language book (she has a German university doctorate) Auma trots out the fake birth date of 1936 for her father which corroborates Barry's book but which INS FOIA docs show was not a date that BHO Sr. claimed until 1964.

On arrival in HI in 1959 and in 1961 at the time of Barry's alleged birth in HI, BHO Sr. was claiming a birth date in 1934 to the INS. One would think that that would be the year of birth that would show on an HI LFBC, but it is the 1936 date that is on the White House pdf file claimed to be a 1934 BC.

See Jack Cashill's take on the chage of birth year:

While it's possible that that's correct it might not be.IIRC (and I'm no expert on this issue) Auntie came here years ago and sought refugee status,that request having been denied at least once.During her years-long stay here she's been ordered deported at least once (and I think twice) by a Federal Immigration judge.It wasn't until Osama became Community Organizer-In-Chief that she was granted refugee status by an Immigration judge that was,I'll wager,either an Osama appointee or one that knew what was good for him/her.

Bummer....I thought it was going to be a book (ghost) written by Maya Soetoro-Ng, She sure has been quiet for almost 4 years. I bet she’s the only one alive who knows the whole truth about Ø. Everybody else is dead, I guess she’s addicted to breathing.

Andrew Breitbart left us knowing more than he had time to disclose to us.

What did he know that we need to re-discover, document and publish?

Why are ALL of Obama’s important early documents forged?

Where was Obama during his “Lost Years?”

Why are there so few known Obama childhood friends?

How many of Obama’s childhood buddies are still alive?

Was Obama a FOREIGN student at Occidental, Columbia or Harvard?

Who wrote the checks for Obama’s education?

Where these question that Andrew Beitbart knew some of the answers to?

____________

To tie the above with some speculative food for thought, please indulge me, (but DO ponder the speculations), as I re-post one of my recently updated comments as follows:

A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.

Currently, at least 40 % of polled American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his arrogant dictatorship.

About 47 % of American voters pay NO Personal Federal Income Taxes. These voters are the “fair share” voter base for Dictator Obama. We, in the 53 %, then are paying this 47 % to vote for Obama by virtue of us paying taxes for ourselves AND them.

In this manner we are supporting the voters who vote for Obama, and they will vote to do so again in November.

Dictator Obama has designed Obama”care” to become active only AFTER he is to be re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).

The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he has already achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.

Obama’s obvious arrogant and deep hatred of America could have only come from what he was taught in his childhood.

Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obama’s past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.

The lack of credible documents that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.

Who the key members of Obama’s probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the Interpol, CIA and the FBI.

Will “Citizen Journalists” such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy the latter two US tax-funded spy entities?

BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.

BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculations: what does your gut tell you?
