Maraniss Bio Deepens Obama Birth Mystery
American Thinker ^ | 6/22/12 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 06/21/2012 11:09:30 PM PDT by Nachum

David Maraniss has no use for "birthers." In a recent interview, he dismissed their beliefs as "preposterous" and wonders why they cling to them, since "every fact and document leads in another direction."

Yet the one core belief that has united the birther community -- if there be such a thing -- is that Obama dissembled when he talked at both the 2004 and 2008 Democratic Conventions about his parents' "improbable love" and "abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation."

Birthers have known for years that there was no Obama family, that the couple never lived together, that Obama campaigned on a lie, and that the major media covered for him every step of the way. This, ironically, Maraniss confirms in Barack Obama: The Story, a book that has to be parsed as carefully as the Talmud or Finnegan's Wake to be made sense of. Despite his slam on birthers, the facts herein will come as more of a shock to the Obama faithful than to those who have questioned the official birth narrative.

Thanks for the ping.

It’s so hard for them to keep their stories straight.

All the ducks have run out of the barn.

Why the hell would you name your daughter Stanley anyway? Yeah, this is my mom, Stan or this is my little girl Stanley. What the hell was wrong with this family?

There's Stanley Ann and Anne Stanley. The first became involved in Indonesia when she grew up. The second was involved in Malaya back in the 1920s ~ her son became a famous traitor who betrayed the Brits to the invading Japanese in WWII. He was hanged during the war.

It becomes quite complicated but there are these old Brit and Portuguese families in the region whose interests crisscross both areas (Indonesia and Malaysia/Singapore). They have their own agenda, heroes, interests, etc.

“In a recent interview, he dismissed their beliefs as “preposterous” and wonders why they cling to them, since “every fact and document leads in another direction.”

Ahem. Well, let me put it in terms you might understand, you Obamabot idiot. It is because your favorite Marxist spent two decades, at least, telling several reporters and authors that he was Kenyan-born.

So the real question is:

a) Was he lying THEN

or

b) is he lying NOW?

Stop blaming other people for a problem created by OBAMA HIMSELF for at least two decades.

It could all be solved by allowing a $12 LFBC to go directly from Hawaii to a court in response to ONE of these challenges.

But no, NEVER THAT. NOT FOR 3+ YEARS.

ANYTHING BUT THAT.

As a character in the G.K. Chesterton story The Sign of the Broken Sword said, "Where does a wise man hide a leaf? In a forest."

Put out enough smoke and the truth is harder to find.

Cheers!

Bingo. It’s election time and there’s too many who might be getting too close to the truth or are questioning the lies. Unfortunately for them, instead of ignoring it they’ve stepped in the middle and made it bigger. Flapping that sad excuse for a real BC was a huge blink. The crack in the dyke became a big hole.

What makes me doubt that Obama Sr is his father is that Obama looks nothing like Obama Sr and more closely resembles Frank Davis and Frank Davis’s son.

Maybe after Obama is turned out in Jan/13 we will finally get to the bottom of it.

FMD and his son bear a strong resemblence. Neither of them look anything like 0mugabe; they could almost be different species. Who are you trying to fool?

If Obama gained 50 pounds and grew a beard he might be a dead ringer for another FMD son. The longer hair and the weight makes such a difference.

omubage and FMD or his son look nothing like each other. Facial structure is entirely different.

Diggity needs to have his brain and cognitive thinking, and perhaps political views, checked.

Post photos of 0mugabe and FMD’s son side by side and everyone can see for themselves!

Its pretty obvious to me. You must have also notice the cheek jowls, hairline, even the tilt of the head.

Yes, still 50 lbs and a beard on Obama JR and you have Davis’s son.

the Pratt daughter, then an adolescent, "has no memory of the Dunhams' daughter bringing an infant home."

Anyone living there would have remembered a woman coming to live them with a newborn infant, even if for only a week before going off to Seattle.

We know Stanley Ann wasn't living with Obama Sr., because Obama Sr. was not even aware at the end of the August (when he filled out an immigration form) that he had had a new child born that month.

And now we know Stanley Ann wasn't at her parents with her new-born infant.

If she had the baby at a hospital in Honolulu, then after leaving the hospital she would have gone either to her husband's or her parents' place.

But the facts are that she did neither. The first sighting of her with infant is in fact Seattle.

It is not a long drive to Seattle from where little Steven Bernard Dunham was born to Stanley Ann Dunham.

So now Cashill is redefining "birthers" on his own! So far as I can tell, "birthers" were pretty confident that Stanley Ann and Barack Sr. were so much a family that she'd go off to Kenya with him to visit his other family and give birth to their child over there. In that case, "birthers" had a lot more faith in the notion that -- at least at one point -- there was more of an Obama family than others believed.

Sure -- in the sense that all fat, bearded Black men look alike.

Sort of like how Obama and Malcolm X and all thin, clean-shaven Black men all look alike.

Some comments are just so perplexing in their ambiguity, it’s not worth the effort...is it?

All short men with beards look like Frank Marshall Davis.
All tall, slim, clean shaven men resemble Malik Shabazz
...if you hold a mirror to their a$$
