Barack. H. Obama II would not be the first high-profile person whose ancestry had dubious characters in it. In today’s Internet age, he certainly won’t be the last. Having released his long-form Hawaiian birth certificate, which he has fought hard to keep under wraps, Obama has tried to lay that part of his hidden past behind him. From all indications, under the premise that the birth certificate is accurate, Barack Obama is listed as having been born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961 to a father of British citizenship and a mother who was an American, giving the child dual citizenship status. That would move any question of his eligibility to be President into the legal interpretation of “Natural Born Citizen”, and the intentions of the Founding Fathers in that regard. Of course, as with any legal question, the experts are split.
So the experts can debate the validity of the long form birth certificate.
Support for it validity can be found in one of the unscrubbed Obama records trails.
As mentioned in an earlier post, the Boston Globe had requested in a FOIA request the immigration files on Obama’s father. The Globe, one of the Kool-aid drinking media, actually had the files in 2009, and could have helped dispel the birth certificate issue then. But, given the manner in which the present day media annointed Barack Obama to the Presidency and have done whatever necessary to protect and defend him (especially as his lack of leadership skills has become clearly evident, i.e. The Empty Suit), it is no surprise that they were not revealed until just recently.
Here is the link for the Immigration files on Barack Hussein Obama (Sr):
The 55 pages of documents make for some interesting reading.
What is gleaned from the files is that Obama Sr. was a womanizer and a bigamist, if not a polygamist. The government had received several calls of concern from a parent whose daughter wanted to go back to Kenya to marry him after he left Harvard.
Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama were purported to be married on February 2, 1961. (No marriage record has yet been found, but given divorce papers a few years later, it can be presumed that the record exists somewhere).
Baby Obama is notated on some of the forms filled out by Barack Sr., and left blank on others.
There is support for the reports that Stanley Ann Dunham had planned to (and likely did) attend the University of Washington the semester after Obama’s birth, as there is a note in the file that indicated that Stanley Ann (and child) resided with her parents in Hawaii, and Obama Sr. resided elsewhere in Honolulu.
Barack Obama (II) was born on August 4, 1961, and Obama Sr’s Student VISA stay expired on August 9, 1961. He applied for his extension on August 31, 1961, and was granted a stay through August 9, 1962.
There is a record of another woman who was in the US at the time Obama Sr was at Harvard, and she went to London. The government informed the British authorities of issues about her, and her boyfriend Obama, describing him as a “slippery character”
All in all, the file makes for interesting reading in some places. But it begs the question, in light of Obama’s “Dreams of His Father“, who was Obama really writing about, or, if the book was in fact written by someone like Bill Ayers, as has been suggested, what was the purpose of book at all.
If Obama wants to cast the story of his American tapestry, his non-existent father should only be a blip on the screen. How his mother raised him and influenced him until she shipped him back to the States to his grandparents?…. that is the fabric of his story. The role as the father figure in his early years that Lolo Soetoro had… that is a part of the hemming. The grounding that Toots Dunham gave him, and the influence of Grandpa Dunham and his associations with the likes of Frank Marshall Davis……….. these sew the fabric together, providing the insight into his later decisions, like sitting in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years as he spread his venomous vitriole. The bigger question then becomes, how does all of this early influence affect the decisions that he makes today? This is a question that only history will be able to provide the answer, after the American public has suffered because of it, IMHO.
