Skip to comments.Another doctored image deepens Obama mystery
Posted on 07/18/2012 7:04:39 PM PDT by Smokeyblue
Does a family photograph of a young Barack Obama posted on the presidents Facebook campaign page offer a clue to the identity of his real father?
A professional graphic artist who examined the 1973 photo believes the image of Obamas mother, Ann Dunham, was airbrushed into the scene to cover up an African-American man who was standing next to Obama at the Honolulu airport.
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, who commissioned the analysis, told WND theres substantial evidence that the man in the original photograph was Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party member, pro-Soviet propagandist and pornographer who played a fatherly role in Obamas teen years.
In his full-length documentary Dreams from My Real Father, Gilbert presents a compelling case that Davis was Obamas biological father as well as his ideological mentor. He believes the Dunham family recruited the Kenyan student Barack Hussein Obama to act as the father, to cover up an illicit affair with a subversive political activist.
Gilbert posted a page on his website at the time this article was published with details of his find.
Gilbert says the black male hand under Obamas armpit is strikingly similar to the right hand of Davis.
We know from Obamas own writing and interviews with Davis neighbors, that Obama was a regular visitor to Davis house from age 10, Gilbert told WND. This doctored photo on Obamas own Facebook page seems to be part of a pattern of document forgery by President Obama to hide his biological and ideological relationship to communist Frank Marshall Davis.

Clearly it is the bottom photo that has been
photoshopped to erase the “O”.
Look at the repeated pattern in the cinderblock wall.
Yes, this is a real newsweek cover. Sullivan argues that Obama had to come out of the "closet" of being black or something.
To be honest though, I think this doctored pic might be more accurate regarding O's character than the other ones are regarding his past.
Raise your hand if you think 0bama’s head looks way to big here..
The notion of ‘her hand is in a shadow’ is a complete and total CROCK. THERE IS NO SHADOW THERE, never was and never will be. Study the little girl in the shadows and grandpa’s right hand then tell me ‘Ann’s hand’ is in a shadow. It’s broad daylight with the light coming from the front! What you REALLY have to wonder is why is this photo tweaked to be so faded on Obama’s Facebook page so you’ll not notice this alteration?
I’ve seen thousands and thousands of pictures and never have seen someone’s hand suddenly turn so dark. Perhaps if there had only been one light source in the room and something occluded the light from her hand, throwing it into complete darkness, perhaps then but even then I would be surprised to see it turn so dark on someone so light skinned. Here though the light is diffused pretty much evenly, so that even if Obama’s body were casting a shadow upon the hand it shouldn’t be that much of one.
What is also incredible is that the MSM is not on this case like stink on sh*t. The whole affair screams of a national conspiracy.
Many easy Pulitzer prizes to be won, but no takers among our “journalists”.
I am thinking it’s actually the boy who has been inserted into the picture. Also, I find it nearly impossible to believe that anyone would have used the original image (a positive, negative or Polaroid-type film) to make or assemble various alterations in this rendition. Most likely, all the person had to start with were two or more prints, which were scanned and then manipulated using Photoshop.
Because it’s bad enough Obama’s mothers’ naked photos are on the Internet. Worse would be that his father was a communist Soviet OPERATIVE AND A PORNOGRAPHER. How do you think those naked photos came to be?
That kid doesn’t look like Obama. He’s in a number of photos, including the grade-school pic in the Honolulu Star and one with Stanley at a zoo. all the same kid, totyally different from Obama. I’ve commented on this before so if I am boring everybody, well, that’s what I do.
And one shadow.
I use Photoshop professionally and I would say that there is a very high chance that this photo is “shopped,” except that this is such a low res example it is tough to really say for sure.
Some things that stand out:
1. Lower right edge of her dress. That dark line is different from what you would expect to see and could be the remnants from something that was in the her original photo (a dark background on original in that area).
At first I thought that it was just the seat support behind her (and it could be up to a point), except that the dark line extends to her foot.
2. Black, or gloved, hand. Simply put, humans have pretty regular conformations and the human forearm is roughly the length of a person’s foot. The forearm in this photo is grotesquely elongated.
Even if she were wearing a sheer-typed glove, her forearm is too long to fit with the hand as it is positioned in this photo.
3. Something that may be hard to explain, but immediately jumped out to me is that if you printed this photo and then took a straight ruler and placed it along the edge of the top side of the white wall in the background you would find that it is straight all of the way across.
If you place the ruler on the lower edge of the white wall you will find that the left side of her dress is raised up slightly and not in line.
It’s just odd.
4. The lighting isn’t quite right on her face, but that would be hard to judge unless you know how the light is getting into the room (windows, glass, &c.?) and if something were blocking it in places.
5. Hair. The hair above her left shoulder appears to “fade” away. Hair does not do that in reality, but it often does it in bad photoshopping. Hair is often a tale-tell sign.
It would be nice to have a higher res version to see better - especially her hair.
Again. Same kid. Not Obama.
Holy crap its right there!
Good pick up.
If you look at the bottom right of the wall it looks like an indentation about 4 inches high, yet there is no indentation on the left side of Stanley Ann.
I never said the hardcopy originals were cut and pasted. It goes without saying that in Photoshop you use jpegs or other digital formats or scans of originals. Sheesh.
You ask: “Serious question ~ why would the commies have to infiltrate the dock workers in Hawaii in the 1940s. Werent they under commie rule from the late 1910s?”
Well, you’ve got me stumped — there was a lot of new information for me in this film. When it came to the dock workers my thoughts went to Mafia control — but guess that was more East Coast. Maybe the film is at your library — I viewed a friend’s copy and no longer obtainable to check. Sorry.
No, it wasn’t you, it was another person and you had said that didn’t make sense. I’m agreeing with you, Sheesh.
Obama did a Michael Jackson?
What that means is that whoever it was that was messing around in Hawaii earlier become inconvenient and they were simply disappeared.
Not surprised at all that Google.com is not showing a net reference. Will probably need to go to another browser to see what it shows.
There were STRIKES by field worker organizations earlier ~
It doesn't look like it, but it does. If you put something with a straight edge up against your monitor you'll see that they do line up.
I do remember that Seattle was another dockworker site mentioned along with Hawaii — maybe you’ll find more there on the port infiltration.
You are serious aren’t you (smile)
Communists were big on doctoring photos long before it became easy with home computers. And they made stupid mistakes too - like the kind shown here...
That kid doesnt look like Obama. Hes in a number of photos, including the grade-school pic in the Honolulu Star and one with Stanley at a zoo. all the same kid, totyally different from Obama. Ive commented on this before so if I am boring everybody, well, thats what I do.
He looks pudgy, whereas Obama has a lean frame.
Like everything O does I asked myself why would he bother to put himself into the photo in NY park. And all I can think of is when trying to compose “a life” the NY Columbia College years must have lacked “presentable” photos to pretend he was really there. He probably found the original in a box when he visited granny’s deathbed apartment.
I went to Obama’s facebook page and he is getting slammed on the site for this fake photo.
Oh, please. It is well-known that Stanley Ann sported a black man's hand at the end of her right arm.
She had been injured in a freak peasant-blacksmithing accident in Indonesia.
At one time during her observation of peasant blacksmithing, Stanley Ann (thanks to her exquisitely sensitive class consciousness) recognized that a peasant blacksmiths surplus labor value was being exploited by a capitalist ironmonger.
In an effort to stop the exploitation, she immediately placed her hand between the hammer and the anvil, but unfortunately the peasant blacksmith noticed her action too late and the result was the total loss of her right hand.
In an amazing act of self-sacrifice intended to inspire progressives everywhere, Frank Marshall Davis cut off one of his own hands which he then provided to the surgical team treating Stanley Ann as a replacement for her lost hand.
Usually Stanley Ann for cosmetic reasons wore a skin-tight flesh tone-colored glove over her replaced right hand, but as we can all see she just so happened not to be wearing her glove at the time this photo was taken.
Russians did sloppy work because only a fool would point out their 'mistakes'. That an advantage for totalitarians - no one questions them casually. If it wasn't Russians it was old style Hyde Park extremists - not that there's much difference... It sure as hell wasn't our guys - who would have done a much better job.
Another thing that strikes me is where is the famous Obama smile?
We can win if we start talking about the issues!
Let's return to reality such as...
Hollywood's new Batman movie is all about Obama and the villain is Mitt Romney.
Shaft no ride camel! Shaft ride ass!
Voroshilov, Molotov, Stalin, Yezhov
Voroshilov, Molotov, Stalin
Put a tutu on Yezhov and he is a spitting image of Rahm Emmanuel
Which probably explains why the port cities on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to this day are bastions of radical leftism.
That's all pretty suspect. Not the photo -- the interpretation. It looks like part of SAD's arm and hand, dark because it's in shadow. The shade is much like her father's arm, also in shadow.
The lighting on Ann Dunhams face is from the far left and is not consistent with the other figures, who are lit from above. This suggests Ann Dunhams image was placed into this scene from a different photo.
She is standing closer to a door or window or passageway. She gets direct light from outside, as well as light from the electric light above. The others, further away from the window or door or passage, get less of that light from the side and are lit more by the electric lights above.
Look at the difference in the wall tiles on different sides of the photo. It's lighter on the left because it gets more sunlight. Or do you think they photoshopped in tiles from different sources?
Ann Dunham looks to be about 25 years old, too young for this 1973 photo. Maya, who was born Aug 15, 1970, looks to be about 3 years old. Ann should look 30 years old.
"Looks to be"? That's an exact science now?
I don't get the rationale on this. Isn't it much, much more likely that a photo of Obama and his half-sister and grandfather would also have his mother in it, than that it would have Frank Marshall Davis in it?
If the Obama people had a photo of Obama with members of his family, they could use it as they do here. If they didn't have this family photo but had one of Obama with his grandfather and FMD, why would they photoshop it, taking out FMD and putting the mother in, and release it? Wouldn't they just lock up the picture and not bother with releasing anything?
Was there some urgent cry now for a photo taken on this date? Was there some important overriding reason why faking a photo and releasing it -- and running the risks involved -- was necessary, when just doing nothing (and running no risks) was the alternative?
Obama does have a big head but that picture is obviously fake.
Which means that the girl is in on it.
Her family is the Jessup/Alger Hiss/Dean Acheson/founder of a Beirut College/Penrose/Richard Helms/ Frank Wisner/ CIA...connected...as you follow the trail.
And SR was in a photo with Arnie Nachmanoff (of Henry Kissenger fame..helping to decide the fate of Chile) with Robert Ruenitz who gave 320,000 to Occidental for a lecture series and at one point was with the foreign service in Japan. Haven’t quite figured out how he made his money but he did say SR was a loner .
Round and round you go down the rabbit hole
Below O’s right hand — something is white. Is that a bag, or purse of some sort? I can’t tell.
for what it’s worth
I’ve been using photoshop every day since 1991 and I don’t see anything funny about the photo (given the low resolution).
Put an exposure layer on and run up the gamma. I see no mismatch - as you would expect in a composite.
Put a hue/saturation on and run up the saturation. You will see her previously invisible reflection in the floor.
As others have pointed out, her hand in no darker that grandaddy’s arm in shadow.
I say this is a wild goose chase.
Still consider Obama’s roots and with whom he identified; whoever doctored the picture (or pictures) would not get away from all the scrutiny, I still maintain my skepticism.
That means nothing. Look at the kid that played in Two and ahalf men. That kid was pudgy as all get out, now look at him. My own two grandsons were real pudgy and as they got older they slimmed way down.
It isn't fair. Boys can be fat as kids then slim down, but girls can be slender at young age and then get pudgy as they get older. :-(
I don’t know what the white thing is but there is a purse behind that. It looks like a structured frame purse. There is something above Obama’s shoulder that could be the handle part of it.
Check out the dress around the elbow of Obama. She is either fat or pregnant- or I guess that dress could be hitting her weird.
Yezhov was one miserable little twerp. Here is the Wikipedia on the manner of his "disappearance":
Just before the execution, Yezhov was ordered to undress himself and then was brutally beaten by guards at the order of Beria, the new NKVD Chief, just as Yezhov had ordered the guards to beat and humiliate his predecessor Yagoda before his execution only two years prior. Yezhov had to be carried into the execution chamber semi-conscious, hiccupping and weeping uncontrollably.
On February 4[, 1940], he was executed by the Chief Executioner and Commandant of Lubyanka, NKVD Major-General Vasili Blokhin, probably in the basement of a small NKVD station on Varsonofevskii Lane in Moscow. The main NKVD execution chamber in the basement of the Lubyanka was deliberately avoided to ensure total secrecy.
His body was immediately cremated and his ashes dumped in a common grave at Moscow's Donskoi Cemetery. The execution remained secret, and as late as 1948, Time reported that [s]ome think he is still in an insane asylum.″
You bring up some good points. The grandfather’s dark arms could be explained by hairiness but still, considering that the quality of the camera may not have been great, even for back then, and the film may not have been developed properly and so on, i’m inclined now to think this remains a curiosity but not much more than that.
