Obama bio further confuses birth issue
WND.com ^ | June 21, 2012 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 06/21/2012 9:20:08 PM PDT by Perseverando

Understandably, the publishers of David Maraniss’ much discussed new biography, “Barack Obama: The Story,” released advanced copies to mainstream reviewers. (Full disclosure here, Simon & Schuster also published my book “Deconstructing Obama.”)

Spinning Maraniss’ revelations as favorably as they could, at least a few reviewers claimed that his book would at least put the birther issue to rest given his interviews with the health professionals attending the birth.

In fact, the Maraniss book does quite the opposite. Although I remain agnostic about the where and when of Obama’s birth, Maraniss’ account makes me all the more suspicious of the official Obama narrative.

As I wrote yesterday, Maraniss, like all other mainstream biographers, tells us not a single word about the life of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, in the six months leading up to Obama’s birth.

In discussing the birth itself, Maraniss reports that Obama was born at 7:24 in the evening of Aug. 4, 1961 at Kapi’olani Hospital. As reference, he cites “State of Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth,” presumably the one posted online in April 2011.

Although his book is otherwise exquisitely detailed, Maraniss adds not a single shred of information regarding the circumstances of Obama’s birth. The reader has no idea how Ann got to the hospital, who accompanied her, how difficult was the labor, how big was the baby, who took her home, or where she went when she left the hospital.

Maraniss strongly suggests, however, that Ann did not return to the house her parents were sharing with the Pratt family at 6085 Kalanianole, the address listed on the certificate and in the newspaper announcements. The Pratt daughter, he reports, “has no memory of the Dunhams’ daughter bringing an infant home.”

Maraniss repeatedly stresses that Barack Obama Sr. did not at any time live with Ann

"The truth is out there." However we knew we won't get it from Obama. (It's so easy to tell when he's lying; his mouth is moving.)

The Diversion Continues.

Even if Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama had been birthed in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House Obama is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.

I was just on the genealogy subject in another thread. I've got more than 10 years experience with the website ancestor.com and out of curiosity I had thought about doing Obama's genealogy to see what I could find out.

What stops me is the thought that surely many many other people must have already tried it and if so they must not have found anything. If they did, we'd have heard something by now.

Perhaps I will do it on whoever had his ssn before him and maybe I can learn a bit about who that person was, when they died and the circumstances.

Truth is, I don't want to become a target by anyone (if you know what I mean). How nice to be living in today's America when you have to fear finding out something you should not know.

This book can’t be correct!

Hawaii governor, what’s his name, looked into the sky, saw the glittering stars, and travelled to the Won’s birth place in Pratt’s garage, in the worn rumble seat of an old Ford.

He was there, he witnessed the birth of the chosen one - but he just can’t place his hands on a real birth certificate

Gov. Neil Abercrombie is an old marxist who was pals with members of the Communist Party of Hawaii in the 1950’s. This would have included Frank Marshall Davis, Jack Hall, and the Reinickes (Sp). Also Sen. Akaka seems to have been in this leftist group.

Ironically, Sen. Daniel Inouye helped to fight the communists and prevent them from taking over the Democratic Party of Hawaii, i.e. the leading political party in the then Territory of Hawaii. If they had prevailed, the CPUSA would have been in charge of a state, using the CPUSA labor organization, the International Longshoremen’s Workers Union
(ILWU) as their thug force, as well as controlling the lifeline docks and shipping industry.

While the old CPUSA/Hawaii CP is gone, its’ influence still lives on in the lefties of the 50’s including Abercrombie and Akaka, among others.

One day the whole truth of Obama/family and their ties to the Hawaii Left may come out. Right now it is covered up by the highest politicos on the island.

I think that the truth about Obama will probably shock a lot of people as there is even someone presenting the case that he is the son of Malcolm X. There is a slight resemblance too & an odd picture of Obama wearing glasses [ he does not have to wear glasses ] while asleep on a couch.

You know what is another “missing chapter” of Obama’s life that I just thought about? Baby pictures.

I’ve seen only one of him, and he wasn’t a newborn. I’d say he was at least 12-18 months old in that photo. Where are the photos of proud Stanley Dunham with her newborn in swaddling clothes? I’d wager they aren’t shown in public because you won’t see Hawaiian palm trees outside the hospital window, or Barack Sr. posing with his “wife” and child.

MARANISS WRITES THAT DR. WEST’S “STANLEY” (who had a baby) WAS “WHITE AND AFRICAN”! STANLEY WAS AFRICAN!

Interesting. Wolf Blizer and CNN claimed that Maraniss had written that a “contemporaneous letter” was the source of the “Stanley had a baby” supposed validation of an HI birth.

But according to Cashill, Maraniss writes that Dr. West said directly to Ms. Czurles-Nelson (not in a verifiable 1961 letter) that the woman of the “Stanley had a baby” quote was a white AFRICAN! As in, perhaps, a very young, white (formerly American) Kenyan woman married (sort of) to a black man, such as a woman registering her African birth in Hawaii in a way that came to the attention of Dr. West...just before leaving for Washington?

Per Cashill:

begin quote:

Maraniss clarifies that West did not deliver the baby, but he “could have heard the story from any number of sources.” Czurles-Nelson then has West going on to say that the mother was white and African “with an interesting name too.”

end quote

Why would Dr. West say Stanley was “white and African” if she had been an Hawaii resident in the care of a local HI OB-Gyn giving birth in an HI hospital?

Barack Hussein Obama is a fictional character created by Bill Ayers, the actual author of Dreams From My Father.

That guy who was elected pResident in 2008 is simply an actor playing a part. We’ll probably never know the real story. Maybe there is no “real” story.

I think in the end and once we know everything THIS will be the closest story of the REAL Obama. Why? Because this article appears on sites then mysteriously gets pulled. Then it appears on another page, then gone. No doubt Obama’s people have been chasing this article off-line as much as possible. Because of that there must be a lot of truth in it. This is the closest I’ve seen to the real Obama...

There aren’t any baby and Stanley “Momma” photos because she isn’t his mother.

Alvin Onaka just indirectly confirmed to AZ SOS Ken Bennett that the birth record they have for Obama is not legally valid. http://www.coachisright.com/howd-you-like-a-nice-hawaiian-sucker-punch/

If Obama had been born at any Hawaii hospital he would have a legally-valid BC. In fact, even if he had been born someplace else but was in Hawaii within the first month after birth to be examined by a Hawaii doctor he would have a legally-valid HI BC.

Obama was not born in Hawaii and was not even IN Hawaii within the first 30 days of his life. If he had been, none of this coverup would have been necessary.

Obama could clear it up in a New York Minute by having Kapiolani release documents confirming his birth there.
He is being purposely obstinate, or knows that he was not born there.

One way or the other, he is like Esav— he despises his alleged birthright. If he ever had one, he sold it for a bowl of whatever would $u$tain him at the time.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. His biological father, Frank Marshall Davis, was definitely a U. S. citizen when little Barry was born.

Obama is just an actor in a global version of Total Recall, and we are the ones at Recall.

His past was sanitized so as to be accepted as truth. He had a literal army of domestic communists working on ferreting every inch of his past and then using internet creative cut and paste passed it off as true factual documentation.

The internet is Obamas Total recall. Real hard copy facts from other countries are about the only trusted source, the lie has to grow bigger and bigger in order to be firmly accepted as the truth.

When is Sheriff Joe’s press conference?

"...there’s a press conference in three or four weeks,” he said.

County refuses funds for Sheriff Joe's Obama probe

http://www.wnd.com/2012/06/county-refuses-funds-for-sheriff-joes-obama-probe/

In a move described by Sheriff Joe Arpaio as political payback, the Maricopa County, Ariz., Board of Supervisors today rejected a $5,000 reimbursement from the sheriff’s volunteer Cold Case Posse for expenses incurred on a trip to Hawaii to investigate Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility.

“It’s sad that they use these politics to reject money,” Arpaio told WND. “I made the promise when I launched the investigation to do everything I can to not use taxpayer money.”

He confirmed his Cold Case Posse team would not be deterred by any disagreement over a donation, however.

If they want to know what’s going on, there’s a press conference in three or four weeks,” he said.

“This is a criminal investigation,” Arpaio asserted. “You cannot have the board of supervisors interfere with the elected sheriff’s duties and responsibilities that he gets from the Constitution.”

The expenses incurred by the county were for a deputy who accompanied Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo for security purposes.

This has been hashed out to atoms numerous times. Look at it this way - there is not one atom of evidence - paper, electronic, photographic, witnessed or any other kind that shows Stanley Ann D or her parents in 0mugabe’s presence until he’s at least 2, or around 3. Not a place of residence, not a photo of mom/grandparents and baby, not a rent receipt, eyewitness (other than Blake’s which is manufactured), nurse, doc, hospital record, real b.c., nothing.

Au contraire, all “evidence” is forged, lied about, fraudulent, etc. If they had a scrap of evidence, they’d have shown it to us.
