PART 4 Continued: 4B Barack Obama – The Unauthorized Biography of a Marxist -Obama Sr and Stanley Ann Dunham – 11 Months in Hawaii?


The Washington Post Reported that when Barack Obama, Sr. first arrived in Hawaii he was interviewed by the Hawain Press, the reporter Hirozawa relays Obama’s comments, “he would study business administration and wanted to return to Kenya to help with its transition from tribal customs to a modern economy.” He was concerned, he said, about his generation’s disorientation as Kenyans rejected old ways yet struggled with “westernization”.”

Obama did not mention his opposition to the “Westernization” of Kenya in the interview – Obama was, in fact, a  Marxist.

The Washington Post went on to report that, “Taking a room at the Charles H. Atherton branch of the YMCA,  not far from campus, Obama quickly adapted to the rhythms of student life. One of his frequent hangouts was the snack bar in an old Army-barracks-style building near his business classes. It was there that he met the Abercrombie brothers, first Neil and then Hal, who had escaped the darkness of Buffalo to attend graduate school in Honolulu, and their friends Peter Gilpin, Chet Gorman and Pake Zane. They were antiestablishment intellectuals, experimenters, outsiders, somewhere between beatniks and hippies, and they loved to talk and drink coffee and beer. Neil Abercrombie went on to become a Democratic Congressman from Honolulu, Hawai.

The Washington Post went on to elaborate on Obama’s Press interview with Hirozawa, “When asked if people questioned him about Kenya, he laughed and said: “Oh, yes. People are very interested in the Mau Mau rebellion [a long-standing uprising against the British] and they ask about race relations in Kenya. I tell them they’ve improved since the rebellion but are not perfect. They also ask if Kenya is ready for self-government. Some others ask me such questions as how many wives each man has back home, what we eat, how I dress at home, how we live, whether we have cars.”

He [Obama] did not answer those questions in the story. Nor, on one matter, was he forthcoming with his friends at the university. Neither newspaper readers nor his fellow students knew that he had left a son and a pregnant wife back in Kenya.                              

Obama “pontificated on Kenya and nationalism and colonialism and his fears about what might happen.” “He was very concerned that tribalism would trump nationalism,” Neil Abercrombie said. “And that people like himself would not be properly recognized, would not be fully utilized, and there would be discrimination and prejudice. Jomo Kenyatta [Kenya’s first post-colonial leader] was a Kikuyu, and Barack and Mboya were Luo, and Kikuyu were going to run things. We’d get into it, that deeply” said Abercrombie.                                                                    

This writer won’t speculate on whether Abercrombie’s memory is faulty, or the Washington Post’s writers notes were in accuate, however, the historical facts are this ….. When Obama Sr. arrived in Hawaii in June 1959, future President Kenyatta was in jail in Kenya. This was a matter of discusssion in local and Internation Press. The Bristish did not call and end to the “State of Emergency” in Kenya until November 1959. Kenyatta was not released from jail in Kenya until July 1961, after Obama Sr. had finished his second year of studies in Hawaii. In June 1962 Barack Obama Sr finisjed his studies at the University of Hawaii, with honors and according to a report in the Honolulu-Star-Bulletin, departed Hawaii for Harvard on June 22, 1962. It wasn’t until May 1963 before Jomo Kenyatta would be elected the first President of Kenya, 11 months after Obama Sr had left Hawaii.  In December 1963 Kenya was granted independence. In the spring of 1964 Obama Sr completed his Masters degree at Harvard and returned home to Kenya. In December 1964 Kenya becomes a Republic. While Abercrobie and Obama may have discussed Kenya, the discussion as described, did not place in the time frame reported.                                                                                
The Washington Post goes on to report, “During his time in Hawaii, the elder Obama seemed adept at walling off various aspects of his life.” The Washington Post goes on to repeat the Obama Jr claim in “Dreams” that, “He eventually told Ann about a former marriage in Kenya but said he was divorced, which she would discover years later was a lie”, the Post closed with these comments, “few members of the snack bar crowd remember the Obama-Dunham relationship. Hal Abercrombie said he never saw them together. Pake Zane, who left the island for a spell in 1961, could not recall Ann from those days but had precise memories of Obama”…. ”                        
Neil Abercrombie did remember her appearing at some of the weekend gatherings. Obama was such a strong personality, he said, that he could see how the young woman was awed and overwhelmed by him. “She was a girl, and what I mean by that is she was only 17 and 18, just out of high school. And he brought her at different times. She mostly observed because she was a kid. Everybody there was pretty high-powered grad-student types.” Ann’s friends on Mercer Island found Ann’s involvement with the group a, “logical extension of long coffeehouse sessions in Seattle and the teachings of Wichterman and Foubert. The forum now involved graduate students from the University of Hawaii. They spent weekends listening to jazz, drinking beer and debating politics and world affairs.”,0,2623808.story?page=4                                        ,8599,1729524-3,00.html

Clearly, Neil Abercrombie’s recollections are coloured by the vision he had as a 25 year-old. No other individual has described Stanley Ann Dunham Obama in this manner – no one. The role of “observor” is in direct contradiction to all other descriptions of Ann. It would seem, based on all of the descriptions given of Ann, that if she were acting as an observor, it was done so intentionally and not due to being in awe of the upper classman. Possibly, the comments reflect Abercrombie’s latent sexism. After all, these upperclassman, with the exception of Obama Sr, were only psuedo intellectual Marxists. At home, Ann could converse with the real deal, Frank Marshall Davis. With Frank Marshall Davis as a family friend and visitor, I doubt that Ann Dunham Obama, was overly awed by this wannabe college clique. The local college football star is just a bit less impressive when Eli or Payton Manning are regular dinner guests at your home. Why didn’t the clique ever go to Ann’s home, a large house on the very fashionable Kamehameha Blvd..

Again, Barack Obama Sr. and Ann Dunham Obama, met in a Russian language class in September 1960.,8599,1729524-2,00.html.   

In 1960, thirty thousand college students were enrolled in Russian Language courses across the United States. The University of Hawaii was one of the first to offer the instruction.  The basic Russian class was taught that year by one of the two Russian Language instructors on staff, Ella Wiswell or Isabelle Tripianky. The teachers were similar in both background and teaching style. Wiswell was a Russian emigre and talented linguist who for a while had been the only University of Hawaii Russian Language faculty member. Tripianky was also a Russian emigre, who like Wiswell had studied at the Sorbonne in Paris. The class was held in old Hawaii Hall, and numbered about two dozen students in all, many filled with the dewy eyed idealism of American Cold Warriors who hoped to work as intelligence analysts for the CIA. 

Other students enrolled in the Language course for a variety of reasons, including their support of the Soviet Union. While just a matter of coincidence, it was at about this time that a young man, who had previously studies Russian in just such a course while serving in the US Marines, who later served at a “listening post” in Japan where he intercepted Soviet Military transmissions and intrepreted them for the US Government, was returning from the Soviet Union where he had gone to live after renouncing his American citizenship. That young man would become famous in a few short years, 1963 Dallas, Texas, to be exact. Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President John F Kennedy in Dallas in November 1963. 

Obama’s acquaintences in Hawaii rationalize his study of Russian in this manner, “Barack Obama Senior’s interest in the class seemed to make far more sense. As a future member of the Kenyan government’s technocratic elite, the ability to speak both English and Russian, the languages of the two countries vying for influence and control over his native land would certainly give him a leg up in the competition among returning scholars for plum jobs back home.”

This rationale would prove to only partially correct. English was a common language in Kenya but Russian would serve Obama’s intended course of political activity to a higher degree. Obama was a Pro-Soviet Marxist.

There is scant evidence of the relationship between Barack Obama and Ann Dunham. Obama’s friends have little or no memory of her. Obama relates two stories, a first date where Obama Sr was late and a dinner at the Dunham home where his maternal Grandparents failed to notice their daughter holding her “friends hand”. I chuckle when I read this second reference, a clear Obama fabrication – as Obama grows older he will realize how transparent this fabrication is to all men who have daughters, or to those daughters who now have daughters of their own  – it is not remotely possible for a man’s daughter to sit at the dinner table and “secretly” hold hands with her “friend” without both parents, particularly the father, not knowing exactly what is going on….. and it doesn’t matter if the parents approve or disaprove of the young man.

What is clear is this, based on the account in “Dreams”, Ann Dunham met Barack Obama in September 1960. Two months later she was expecting Barack Obama Jr.. 

Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Senior were said to have married before a justice of the peace on the island of Maui on February 2, 1961, by which time the now eighteen year old Ann’s pregnancy was known to both of them. The wedding had no witnesses, not even her parents, and no record of the event has yet been found. The only evidence that suggests a February, 1961 date for the wedding was a document included in Ann Dunham’s 1964 divorce proceedings against Obama Senior.

The lack of any documentary evidence, when such evidence for legal marriages that took place in Hawaii during 1961 is readily available today to any inquiring family member, strongly suggests [to some] that Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Senior were not ever legally married. The State of Hawaii maintains all marriage records in its Department of Vital Records, a part of the Department of Health. Its website states that any family member can request copies of valid marriage certificates by simply paying a small fee. If Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama were legally married on February 2, 1961, the marriage certificate is maintained by the Hawaii Department of Vital Records, and a copy of it can be made available to any blood relative easily.

Barack Hussein Obama II was born on August 4, 1961 at 7:52 PM in Honolulu, Hawaii. Stanley Ann Dunham was listed as the maiden name of the mother and Barack Obama was listed as the name of the father in the document put forward that appears to be a State of Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth. The document was filed on August 8, 1961. There is no indication that Barack Obama Senior was present at the birth of his third child. Stanley Ann’s high school classmate Susan Blake had the impression that he was not there, and may not even have been on the island of Hawaii at the time, but no other contemporary has any recollections on this issue one way or the other.

Strangely, there is no documentation that would support the fact that Barack Obama and Ann Dunham Obama ever cohabitated. True, one not need cohabitate to impregnate, but, the failure to cohabitate, even after the pregnancy & marriage, certainly raises questions in this writer’s mind about the legitimacy of the Obama account in “Dreams”.

Obama biographer David Mendell reports that after the birth of Barack Jr., in late August or early September, Barack Obama Senior rented a small one floor house near the campus of the University of Hawaii, ostensibly as a home for his young wife and their new son. It’s not clear how much time, if any, the Obama family spent there together, living under the same roof.

Prior to this time Obama had continued to live at the YMCA, while Ann Obama continued to live with her parents.

Stanley Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii in June 1960. Within 11 months she met both  Frank Marshall Davis and Barack Obama, conceived Barack Obama Jr and left Hawaii to return to Mercer Island with her infant son but without her “husband”.

Blake recalls that Dunham, who was calling herself Ann Obama at the time, visited her at her house in Mercer Island during the last week of August, 1961.

Blake recalls that Dunham, who was calling herself Ann Obama at the time, visited her at her house in Mercer Island during the last week of August, 1961.

She left Honolulu just as soon she had clearance from her doctor to travel with her new baby. He was just 3 weeks old. She had sent a postcard that she would be in town, and was staying with a friend of her mother’s. She drove out to my house in her mother?s friend’s car, and we spent the entire day together. She was very excited about her new life, and her husband. She was nuts about him, crazy in love. I was under the impression that he had left Honolulu before Barack’s birth, that he had gone to Harvard already for his studies, and that Ann was on her way to join him there. She planned on raising her son, getting a job, and attending school, she told me. Her husband would head back to Kenya after graduating from Harvard to join the newly formed government, and she would take her place beside him. It was all very exciting, a dramatic change in her life in the one year since she had graduated from high school.” 
Another high school classmate, Maxine Box, recalls visiting with Stanley Ann Dunham and her new born baby a week or two later, in early September 1961.
I remember it was a sunny day, and I visited Stanley at the house of the friend she was staying with on Mercer Island. We talked for about an hour, mostly about her new baby, Barack Obama Junior. I recall that she said she was on her way to join her husband, but I don?t recall where that was. We didn?t talk much about her husband or her plans, we talked mostly about the baby. Like most of my friends, I was shocked at the turn of events. Stanley Ann was only a year out of high school and was already married with a child. I never thought that she was someone who wanted to get married. She was always someone who seemed focus on getting an education.  
Seattle Times journalist Jonathan Martin reports that some high school classmates recall visiting her and her young son alternately at the Laurelhurst student housing, then at a Capitol Hill apartment during the period that stretched from March 1962 to at least September 1962.    In March, 1962, Stanley Ann Dunham enrolled as a full time student at the University of Washington for the spring quarter, which continued until June, 1962, earning 10 credit hours that quarter. She also rented her own apartment.

Another class mate, Barbara Cannon Rusk, recalls visiting Stanley Ann Dunham and her baby son Barack at her apartment on Capitol Hill in Seattle shortly after the end of these spring quarter classes. (1962).

I had moved to Utah for a while after high school, and I came back to Seattle in the summer of 1962. I remember visiting the World’s Fair, and then stopping by Stanley Ann’s apartment on Capitol Hill. It was a small apartment, upstairs. It was after June, and could have been as late as September, 1962. I visited her for half a day or so. It was after the end of the spring quarter classes, and she wasn’t in classes, and didn’t have a job. I recall her being melancholy at the time. I had a sense that something wasn’t right in her marriage. It was all very mysterious. First, her husband wasn’t there, he was already off in Harvard. I didn’t ask her about the relationship, feeling it was a private matter. My daughter Michelle was just a few weeks younger than Stanley’s son, who she called Barry, and they played together on the floor.

While Stanley Ann Dunham was living in Seattle, Barack Obama Senior finished his senior year at the University of Hawaii. The Kenyan sponsor who had covered most of Barack Obama Senior’s expenses while he studied at the University of Hawaii, Ella Kirk, wrote to Tom Mboya asking him to fund Obama Senior’s graduate studies, preferably at Harvard, in May of 1962. No mention was made in the request of the need to fund the living expenses for his wife and son.

As with Susan Blake and Maxine Box, Barbara Cannon Rusk never saw her friend Stanley Ann Dunham again.

As previously noted, Obama Sr. graduated from the University of Hawaii in June of 1962 with a degree in mathematics and economics and a Phi Beta Kappa key in recognition of his academic excellence. He departed for Harvard on June 22, 1962.

In “Dreams”, Obama Jr notes, that the “story in the Star-Bulletin on the day he left, June 22, said Obama planned a several-weeks grand tour of mainland universities before he arrived at Harvard to study economics on a graduate faculty fellowship. The story did not mention that he had a wife and an infant son.” Author and Washington Post writer David Marannis confirms this story. This should be framed in a new context, it is likely that Stanley Ann Dunham did not attend her husband?s graduation ceremony, she was in Seattle.

Some time between the late summer 1962 visit with Barbara Cannon Rusk at her Seattle apartment and January, 1964, when she filed for divorce against Barack Obama Senior, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama moved back to Honolulu from Seattle. She returned to live with her parents, rather than continue her efforts to raise Barack in Seattle as a single mother attending college. After her return she attended the University of Hawaii on an irregular, part time, basis.

Barack Senior finished his studies at Harvard in the spring of 1964 and immediately returned to Kenya. The amount of time Barack Obama Sr spent with his namesake, if, in fact he spent any time at all, is unknown. Obama Sr returned to Hawaii some 9 or 10 years later and spent a month with Barack Obama, Jr. (That visit will be dioscussed in a later installement).

Upon his return to Kenya in June 1964, Obama Sr joined the Kenya Peoples Union (KPU) a Pro-Soviet group founded by Oginga Odinga. Odinga, while a fellow member of Luo tribe, opposed Tom Mboya and President Kenyatta and all those who favored Kenyan ties with the West and Western styled democracy. ln July 1965, just 11 months after his return to Kenya, Barack Obama Sr published an article titled “Problems Facing Our Socialism” in the East Africa Journal. The article was highly critical of the blueprint for national planning (titled “African Socialism and Its Applicability to Planning in Kenya” or “Sessional Paper 10) prepared by Tom Mboya’s  Ministry of Economic Planning and Development. The Mboya “plan” had been passed by the Kenyan Parliamnent.                                                                  Mboya a fellow member of the Luo Tribe had been Obama’s mentor and protector. It had been Mboya, not the “Kennedy Family”, who had provided Obama with his opportunity for education in the US. Myboya’s publication, also called “Sessional Paper 10 on Harambee and the Principles of African Socialism” (adopted by Parliament in 1964) provided a model of government based on “African values” rather than Pro-Soviet Marxism. Mboya’s paper was considered the equivalent of Kenya’s “Economic Constitution” – Obama’s criticism of Mboya and his support for the Pro-Soviet Marxists in the KPU (Kenyan Peoples Union),  was a career killer. Obama Sr betrayed his mentor Mboya, sided against those in favor with western ties and, as he had been educated in the West (America) was never completely trusted by the KPU or their Soviet Associates. Having severed his ties with those who had helped, he was never able to compensate for the fact that there were hundreds of Kenyan’s who had been educated on Soviet scholarships behind the “Iron Curtain”.,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction  (The above post by Communist University online).

Stanley Ann Dunham’s true reasons for returning to the State of Washington was different than the reason she provided to her friends. In August, 1961, Ann Dunham Obama enrolled in a University of Washington extension course. Between August, 1961 and March 1962, she enrolled in a total of four extension courses at the University of Washington, earning a total of 20 credits for her work in those courses, no small feat, considering that graduation required 180 credits, and the typical full time student earned 45 credits a year. Neither Box nor Blake has any recollection of Stanley Ann telling them she was enrolling on that same trip in extension courses at the University of Washington.

Barack Obama – The Unauthorized Biography of a Marxist – Part 3 – The Hawaii Years, Barack Obama Sr

In 1935 just before Hitler took power in Germany and just before World War II would begin in Europe, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was born into the Lou Tribe, on the banks of Lake Victoria, Nyang-oma Kogelo in Kenya, East Africa. As a young man Obama was raised as a Muslim, however, as he developed a Marxist philosophy he renounced Islam for Athiesm.,_Sr.

In the early 1950’s the Mau-Mau rebellion began in Kenya. The Rebellion started within the Kikikuyu Tribe. The Mau – Mau’s wanted independance from Britian and a Kenya that was free of Whites. The first recorded meetings of the rebellions leaders are now reported as having taken place in August 1951. The Rellions goal; end British Rule in Kenya and drive out or kill all white settlers in Kenya. The Mau-Mau imposed an “oath” on black Kenyans, those who refused to take the oath were slaughtered. Intitiation into the Mau-Mau  could include the murder of Whites settlers.  

A Brief History Of The Mau-Mau Rebellion & Time Line Of Obama Sr’s Life

24th August 1952 – The Kenyan government imposes a curfew in three districts on the outskirts of Nairobi where gangs of arsonists, believed to be members of the Mau Mau, have been setting fire to homes of Africans who refuse to take the Mau Mau oath. (These sites also provide a broader historical review of the Mau-Mau Rebellion)                                                                                

7th October 1952 –  Senior Chief Waruhui is assassinated in Kenya — he is speared to death in broad daylight on a main road on the outskirts of Nairobi. He had recently spoken out against increasing Mau Mau aggression against colonial rule.

19th October 1952 – The British government announces that it will send troops to Kenya to help the fight against the Mau Mau.

21st October 1952 –  With the imminent arrival of British troops, the Kenyan government declares a state of emergency following a month of increasing hostility. Over 40 people have been murdered in Nairobi in the last four weeks and the Mau Mau, officially declared terrorists, have acquired firearms to use along with the more traditional pangas or machettes. As part of the overall clamp down Jomo Kenyatta, president of the Kenya African Union, is arrested for alleged Mau Mau involvement. Kenyatta would later visit the Soviet Union and seek support for his Marxist endeavors. While there can be no doubt that Kenyatta and the Mau-Mau’s were influenced by Soviet Marxism, the support the Mau-Mau’s received from the Soviets was largely verbal. Very little in the way of armaments or money were forth coming from Moscow.                                                               Moscow was busy consolidating its possessions behind the Iron Curtain. The Communists, however, have a different view of this history.,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction

Mboya, like Obama, was a member of the Luo Tribe. – page 9.                 Unlike Obama, Mboya was not a Pro-Soviet Marxist. Mboya was raised in Catholic Schools in Kenya and later attended Oxford University. Mboya’s Socialist leanings were in line with those of the British Labour Party not the Soviet Communist Party.  

Early 1959 – Tom Mboya traveled to the United States to persuade Americans to contribute to a scholarship fund and he was remarkably succesful in his efforts. Kenya, he said, needed Kenyans to be trained in America, so that when independence came they would be capable of replacing the British bureaucrats and administrators who ran the country. In the late 1950s, there were no universities in Kenya. Eight thousand Americans contributed to the fund, among them leaders of the black community including Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, and Jackie Robinson – the famous baseball player. According to the “Tom Mboya Archives” at Stanford University, Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, a literacy advocate, provided most of the financial support for Obama Sr.’s early years in the United States. ,,_Sr.                                                                                                                                              Mboya’s affinity for American and British educational systems offended both the Soviets and the Pro-Soviet forces within Kenya.

August 1959 – Kezia, now three months pregnant with the Obama’s second child, a daughter, Auma, says her farewell as Barack Obama, Sr. leaves to study at the University of Hawaii. Barack Obama Senior was one of eighty one Tom Mboya scholars that year, along with his friend Phil Obeigwe. The two would meet for a send off party in Mboya’s Nairobi offices before flying off to America together.

September 1959 – Barack Obama Senior begins studies at the University of Hawaii. ,

10th November 1959 – The British call an end to tthe state of emergency in Kenya.

18th January 1960 – The Kenyan Constitutional Conference being held in London is boycotted by African nationalist leaders.

In “Dreams”, Barack Obama Jr. claims that, “The Kennedy’s (President John F Kennedy) decided: ‘We’re going to do an airlift. We’re going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is. This young man named Barack Obama [Sr.] got one of those tickets and came over to this country.” This account of Obama Sr’s arrival in the US is entirely fiction. The Kennedy family involvement with the airlift did not begin until 1960, one year after Obama, Sr. had arrived and started studies at the University of Hawaii.,_Sr. Obama repeated this falsehood in a 2007 civil rights speech in Selma, Alabama.  These facts can be confirmed by documents in the Kennedy Library. During the Selma speech Obama went on to falsely embellish when he said, “There was something stirring across the country [then] because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Junior was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama.” Bloggers have pointed out that the Selma bridge protest did not occurr until four years after Obama’s birth. The Washington Post went on to confirm the falsehood. Barrack, if you have a claim on a connection to Selma, it isn’t this one.

June 1960 – Barack Obama, Sr. finishes his first year of study at the University of Hawaii.

June 1960 – Stanley Ann Dunham arrives in Hawaii with her family.

September 1960 – Barack Obama, Sr and Stanley Ann Dunham meet in a Russian Language class at the University of Hawaii.

November 1960 – Stanley Ann Dunham turns 18 and conceives Barrack Obama, Jr.

February 21 1961 – It is claimed that Barack Hussien Obama, Sr. married Stanley Ann Dunham in Maui, Hawaii. There were no parents, friends or witnesses present. Writers have suggested that since no documentary evidence of a marriage has ever been produced, the failure to produce such evidence strongly suggests that Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Senior were never legally married. 

The State of Hawaii maintains all marriage records in its Department of Vital Records, a part of the Department of Health. Its website states that any family member can request copies of valid marriage certificates by simply paying a small fee. Documentary evidence for marriages that took place in Hawaii in 1961 is readily available for any any inquiring family member.

18th April 1961 – In return for the release of Jomo Kenyatta, African nationalist leaders agree to take a role in Kenya’s government.

August  4, 1961 – Barack Hussein Obama, Jr is born. It is reported that Stanley Ann Dunham drops out of school to take care of the child. This is incorrect. It has been reported that Barack Hussein Obama, Sr was not present at the birth. Stanley Ann’s high school classmate Susan Blake had the impression that he was not there, and may not even have been on the island of Hawaii at the time, but no other contemporary has any recollections on this issue one way or the other.

August 1961 – Obama biographer David Mendell reports that Barack Obama Senior rented a small one floor house near the campus of the University of Hawaii around this time, ostensibly as a home for his young wife and their new son.                                                                                     Other reports suggest this is incorrect.

Late August 1961 – Stanley Ann (Dunham) Obama returns to Mercer Island, Washington and enrolls in classes at the University of Washington.

The Obama Family Myth – as desribed in “Dreams” is that Barack Obama Sr. abandoned his wife and young child to study at Harvard. That Obama Sr. had a choice between Harvard and the New School, that he choose Harvard over the New School where scholarship money would have helped support the family. Again, this is myth. Ann Obama left Barack Obama Sr, in August 1961, weeks after Barack Jr’s birth. Ann found funding for her own studies at the University of Washigton while Barack Sr completed his studies at the University of Hawaii. Ann did not attend Obama’s graduation ceremonies and did not return to Hawaii until Obama had moved on to Harvard University.

June/September 1962 – Ann Obama moves back to Hawaii with Barack, Jr. She would resume her attendance at the University of Hawaii on an irregular part time basis.

September 1962 – Barack Sr. begins studies at Harvard University. Obama would meet an American-born teacher named Ruth Nidesand who would return to Kenya with Obama after his graduation from Harvard. Obama and Nidestand would eventually marry, she would become his third wife. The couple would have two children before they divorced.

Obama would then become the Senior Economist in the Kenyan Ministry of Finance working under the direction of Tom Mboya’s Ministry of Economic Planning and Development.,_Sr.   

12 December 1964 – Kenya is declared a republic. Jomo Kenyatta the first President.  

BBC Newsreel – Kenya a Republic – President Kenyatta  / Vice President Odinga 

July 1965 – Barack Obama, Sr. publishes an article titled “Problems Facing Our Socialism” in the East Africa Journal. The article was highly critical of the blueprint for national planning titled “African Socialism and Its Applicability to Planning in Kenya”. The blueprint had been prepared by Tom Mboya’s  Ministry of Economic Planning and Development.                                                                  Mboya a fellow member of the Luo Tribe had been Obama’s mentor and protector. It had been Mboya, not the “Kennedy Family”, who had provided Obama with his opportunity for education in the US. Myboya’s publication, also called “Sessional Paper 10 on Harambee and the Principles of African Socialism” (adopted by Parliament in 1964) provided a model of government based on “African values” rather than Pro-Soviet Marxism. Mboya’s paper was considered the equivalent of Kenya’s “Economic Constitution” – Obama’s criticism of Mboya and his the support for the Pro-Soviet Marxists in the KPU (Kenyan Peoples Union),  was a career killer.,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction  (The above post by Communist University online).

Early 1967  – Support for the KPU had significantly diminished – KPU support was limited to a  “handful of Luos”.,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction 

5th July 1969 – Tom Mboya was assassinated by Nahashon Isaac Njenga Njorogein in Nairobi. After mboya’s death, Obama could not find another sponsor to help further his career. Obama’s career in Government stagnated. Whether President Jomo Kenyatta was involved in the killing of Mboya or not has always been highly disputed.                          

Some have suggested Mboya was killed because of alleged ties with the American CIA.—Tom-Mboya-s-fatal-links-with-CIA/111469 

These allegations have been presented in works friendly to Marxist/Leninist ideology as a justification for Mboya’s assassination. There is no credible evidence of a CIA tie with Mboya, however, pro Soviet Marxists strongly opposed Mboya’s educational programs for young Kenyan’s (Marxists or not). Moscow wanted to educate the young Kenyan’s.                                        ,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction   Questions remain as to whether Mboya may have been killed by the last remenants of the Pro-Soviet Marxist KPU.

Kenyan journalist Philip Ochieng, who traveled with Obama to America as a fellow student remained Obama’s friend for life. Ochieng, who referred to himself as Obama’s, “old drinking buddy”, recalled that Obama antagonized other officials with his “boasting,” was “excessively fond of Scotch” and ended up in poverty “without a job.” He got into frequent car accidents, one of which led to the amputation of both his legs. He was killed in another car accident, in 1982, at the age of 46.”

In ‘Dreams” Obama states that Obama Sr’s career “was destroyed by a conflict with President Kenyatta”, that assertion is not supported by the facts.,_Sr.

While it is probabe that President Kenyatta distrusted Obama Sr. on the basis of their different tribal affliations (the animosity between the Kikuyu and Luo tribes continues to this day) it is much more probable that Obama’s betrayal of Tom Mboya and his radical Pro-Soviet Marxism made him an outcast in both the mainstream Luo Tribal Political System and in the greater Pan-African political movement fostered by Mboya and Kenyatta. Acknowledging this would be politically inconvenient for Candidate Obama.
