We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
She has some paranoid ideas but I'm sure her memories are accurate. I suspect that Barry's being gay and doing drugs only adds to his David Bowie-style rock star image. Who cares? It's just interesting that there is nothing real there, on the surface, but, again, who cares? People did not elect a friend.
For some reason my iPad doesn't display the entire article but From what I understand, he admits doing drugs.(I believe during college) as well as hob-nobbing with communists and race radicals.
It's a little surprising that press, who in the name of Tom Brokaw, opined just before the 2008 election that he really didn't know who Obummer was when he claimed to have written two autobiographies that actually said some pretty unflattering things for presidential candidate (of course Brokaw wondered to Don Imus if the Chinese Funny Money scandal would hurt Clinton and Imus retorted that if they were watching his newscast, they wouldn't know about it because he didn't report on it). But it's not really that surprising because the rest of the media is as "lazy" as Brokaw in their reporting.
The story about O being gay has been circulating for years.
Given how obviously he has been lying, I doubt he'll he'll evolve into a David Bowie character, but I wouldn't put it past the media to attempt to foster that. Maybe they'll craft him as as "victim".
Much, and perhaps most, of what this woman says about Hawaii and Punahou school in the late 1970s rings true, although I agree with you that by the end of the interview she seems to be going off the rails into far-out conspiracy theory. The notion that Barry Soetoro might have identified himself as a foreign student during his time at Punahou is perfectly reasonable, hardly an earth shaking revelation. There is no way to know whether her impressions of his personality at the time are accurate or whether she's just projecting her obvious dislike of him back on her memories of him. That other Punahou classmates haven't come forward to confirm what she says about his drug use and his possible association with gays, from whom he might have procured his drugs, cannot be ignored. It's pretty significant, don't you think, that no one else has come forward with similar accusations. As a rare African-American in a school whose student body is dominated by whites, Asians, and hapas (mixed island and Pacific heritage), Barry Soetoro would have stood out like Manute Bol in a crowd of pygmies. Probably everyone would have known him, at least by reputation, and I suspect he would have been widely known throughout the school had he behaved the way she describes. Yet no one else has come forward to-date with similar stories.
I forgot to mention another mystery about Obama's upbringing. A few years ago, a local newspaper published a grade school class photo that was provided by a local woman whose son was enrolled in the same grammar school young Barry would have attended when he and his mother lived in that neighborhood. Although the area was close to the university campus, few African-Americans lived nearby. Military families, for example, almost without exception lived quite a distance away on other parts of Oahu. Nonetheless, there was this one cute black kid standing in the back row, I think it was, and I distinctly remember thinking he was the spitting image of the Barry Soetoro we've seen in photos taken of him with his maternal grandparents. And that's what the woman who provided the picture thought, too. Problem was, the class picture was taken at a time when Barry and his mother were supposed to be living in Indonesia with her second husband. Still, the resemblance of that youngster to Barry S. was unmistakable. Nothing more has ever been said about the picture. Even when a child, Barack Obama left no footprints and cast no shadow upon the ground.
She was NOT a quiet, nice, old lady. More like Lee Emory. (Full Metal Jacket.)
The condo is still their on Makai Street -- just blocks from Punahou. You can see it just north of the H-1 freeway on Google Earth.
She had the penthouse -- #1606. I was in #1505.
His Grandmother was the most influential person in his life in many ways. In sum, he had a cruel teenage childhood.
There is now absolute proof that Frank Marshall Davis was Barry’s biological father.
For FMD took nude photographs of his lover, Stanley Ann, bent over by the Christmas tree in 1960. Barry was already in gestation.
FMD ultimately published these snaps — and they’ve made their way to the WWW.
With a birth date of August 4, 1961 — conception had to occur election night/morning 1960 — virtually to the hour.
These two hyper-leftists would’ve been celebrating the defeat of Richard M. Nixon — the nemesis of FMD. The election of JFK would’ve been merely incidental to his joy.
And FMD ultimately wrote up his history of bedding young White girls — in three-ways with is wife!
Obama, Sr. simply was not in the picture to impregnate Stanley Ann.
BTW, the pictures are NSFW — and FMD was plainly a butt-man. His lover is wearing two shoes — and a smile.
The Obama angle came by way of her father — who’d brought him and other Kenyans into Hawaii — as part of a CIA influence operation.
Which explains why the Dunhams didn’t hesitate to ship their daughter off to Nairobi — they had direct access to CIA funding! No one was looking over their shoulder — for Obama, Sr. WAS part of the CIA campaign.
And so, we know that FMD utterly indoctrinated Barry with all of his hate for Republicans, tradition, and the US Constitution. Which then explains why Barry became a ‘Constitutional Expert.’
He REALLY was carrying on the “Dreams FROM My Father” — then and now.
The case is closed.
Barry’s troubled childhood was NOT due to abandonment issues. It ENTIRELY turns on his extraordinarily difficult teen years — under his GRANDMOTHER. This is the gal that NO ONE wants to write about. She not only raised him in infancy — she raised him as a teenager — right on through his college years.
Trust me, psychological pain can be extremely scarring.
Barry’s tied up in issues of “mimetic desire: all of our desires are borrowed from other people;” (FMD)
“mimetic rivalry: all conflict originates in mimetic desire;” (tutu)
“the scapegoat mechanism” (GOP- Tea Party)
The tyrant is living the same kind of pathos as Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin — both of whom had horrific childhoods. (Napoleon’s was no picnic, either.) Note the results.
