Sarah Palin To Resign As Governor, Democratic National Committee Takes A Sexist Shot

Sarah Plain announced she will leave the her position as Governor of Alaska.

Governor Plain sited, amond other things, the cost of defending herself and her family from groundless ethics compliants. Since her selection as the Republican Vice Presidental Candidate, 15 ethics investigatons have been launched and completed. Governor Palin has been found innocent of all charges. The financial cost to her, personally, is in excess of $500,000.

The American public can’t even get Obama’s college transcripts released or the straight story about his undergraduate years. Tony Resko gave Obama $100,000’s of dollars in loans, but Obama professes that he only new Resko long enough to have  a cup of coffee together. Resko is a slum lord and has been convicted of multiple felonies.    

Todd Palin told FOX News that his wife will concentrate on “doing the things for Alaska and the country” that she is passionate about and cannot do as governor with the limitations and constant opposition she deals with within the state.

Governor Plain has not ruled out a future run for national office.

The Democratic National Committee issued the following statement:

“Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can’t handle the job,” Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse said in a written statement, calling it the latest in a “pattern of bizarre behavior.”

This item is also worthy of note …….

Palin Beats Out Blagojevich for Sitting Duck Award

The National Society of Newspaper Columnists chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the winner of its annual Sitting Duck Award, a tongue-in-cheek honor that pokes fun at the most ridiculed newsmakers in the United States. 

The National Society of Newspaper Columnists chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the winner of its annual Sitting Duck Award, a tongue-in-cheek honor that pokes fun at the most ridiculed newsmakers in the United States.

Palin beat out Democrat Rod Blagojevich, the ousted former governor of Illinois allegedly caught trying to sell President Obama’s Senate seat. Blagojevich was the runner-up. Palin was noted for making headline after headline, month after month. The selection was made last week at a conference in Ventura, Calif.

Blagojevich has been indicted on multiple felony counts,,w-blagojevich-trial-date-set-062509.article , several of his close associates have already been convicted.

The man he appointed to replace Barack Obama, Roland Burris, committed perjury but will not be charged with the crime.

Then we have this incident …

‘Too Bad’ Sarah Palin Didn’t Go Missing, Sen. Kerry Jokes

Massachusetts Sen. Kerry has joined the fraternity of jokesters using Sarah Palin as a punch line.

Kerry was meeting a group of business and civic leaders in the nation’s capital when he decided to play comedian, according to The Boston Herald. He was talking about the disappearance of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, the Alaska governor’s Republican peer.

“Too bad,” he said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.”

Palin’s record in Alaska:

The Alaskan budget is balanced and the State has a $12 Billion Dollar Emergency Fund.

The unemployment rate in Alaska, despite a spike in recent population growth (people moving to Alaska looking for work) is below the National average and the unemployment rate is dropping.

The Citizens of Alaska received a $3,500 state income tax rebate in 2008 and a $1,200 energy rebate. Housing prices have remained constant in Alska. Alaska has escaped the foreclosure crisis, with the 3rd lowest foreclosure rate in the Country.

Governor Plain has cut the State Income Tax in Alaska.

Alaska has a heath care program, Alaska Denali Care that provides coverage to all children and teens in Alaska.                      

At 70% Palin’s job approval rating in Alaska is higher than Obama’s Job approval rating.


If you are a woman in this Country why are you not speaking out against this sexism ……. Why isn’t your voice being heard?

Lamentations over sexism or racism will fall on deaf ears in this realm …. It is either wrong for all or its wrong for none. Speak up now or forever hold your peace ………

Video: Obama’s Special Olympics Bowling Comment To Jay Leno

There is was nothing mean spirited in Mr Obama’s comments. The comments were unfortunate but not unforgivable. Mr Obama is lucky he isn’t a Republican ………

Can you imagine if the lady below would have made that comment …. what do you think the press would have done?

Instead she made the following statement just last month:


Obama 2008:Voter Fraud, Post Election Violence And Genocide

No, I’m not referring to today’s Presdiential election. I’m referring to Obama’s 2007 involvement in the Presidential elections in Kenya – a subject virtually ignored by the US Press but covered by the International Press.

Obama toured Kenya at US Taxpayer Expense in 2007. While in Kenya he Campaigned for his cousin Raila Odinga. Odinga had previously been jailed for his part in an unsuccessful attempt at the violent overthrow of the Kenyan Government (1982).                     

CBS International Reports – Obama Campaigns for Odinga – His Cousin – Obama described as “stooge” for Odinga by Kenyan Government Spokesman.

Odinga claims he and Obama are cousins. They are members of the Kenya’s Luo tribe. Odinga admitts to being a Marxist/Soviet styled Communist. He was education on a Russian Scholarship to an East German University in the 1960’s. Odinga named his son after Cuban President Fidel Castro.

Reuters Reports Obama/Odinga Cousins –
NOTE: At the end of the above video Odinga claims Obama was negotiating on behalf of Odinga with Kenyan President Kibaki.

Obama actively campaigned for Odinga while Odinga negotiated a “political agreement” with Kenya’s Islamic leaders that would establish Sharia (Islamic) Courts of law, prohibit public displays of or the public worship of Chistianity, deny woman access to education and implement Sharia dress standards for Kenyan woman. Both Obama and Odinga denied the existence of this agreement, as the Washington Times states, “Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya’s Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials, embracing the previously denied agreement.”

The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of “Islam as the only true religion,” Islamic leaders would have an “oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original],” installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who “allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists,” adoption of a women’s dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork. The agreement also calls for Kenya to establish a “safe-haven” for terriorist being sought by the US.

NTV – Kenyan National TV / Nairobi – Broadcast cited above – (MOU) Kenyan Muslim Leadership Confirming Agreement – Odinga embraces the agreement at the end of the broadcast.

Odinga later made the MOU, described above, a center piece of his campaign ………

NTV – Odinga Campaings On MOU in Kenya’s Coast Region – Kenya’s Leading Muslim’s In Attendance

The Odinga/Obama campaign heightened Tribal and Religous animosities.

Odinga lost the contested election and his suppoprters ignited tragic inter-tribal violence that claimed over 1500 lifes and displaced over 500,000. In one instance of particlaurly brutal violence, ” “About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.” By mid-February 2008, more than 1,500 Kenyans were killed. Many were slain by machete-armed attackers. More than 500,000 were displaced by the religious strife. Villages lay in ruin. Many of the atrocities were perpetrated by Muslims against Christians.” 


Contrary to Press Reports – The Luo Tribe, Odinga and Obama’s Tribe, is not the predominant ethnic group in Kenya. Kenya’s Ethnic breakdown, based on 2000 Census Data is; Kikuyu Tribe 22%, Luhya Tribe14%, Luo Tribe 13%, Kalenjin Tribe 12%, Kambia Tribe 11%, Kisil Yribe 6%, Meru Tribe 6%, other African 15%, non-African (Asian, European and Arab) 1%.

And while it is believed that Kenya has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of Keyan’s who profess to be Muslim, it is still believed that Christians still out number Muslims at better than 5 to 1 ratio. The 2000 Census data revealed this breakdown –  Protestant 45%, Roman Catholic 33%, Muslim 10%, indigenous beliefs 10%, other 2%.

Assertions that Kenya is predominantly Muslim or Luo are simply false.

Obama – “I’ll bankrupt coal” …. and other shocking Obama claims

For those who might have missed it Barack Obama completed an interview with the San Fransico Chronicle in January 2008. The audio portion of the interview is posted on the Chronicle’s web site, “SF GATE.COM”. The interview can be located on the site here: You can listen for yourself.

In the interview Obama says a number things that are shocking.

On Coal

Obama says, “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” Obama also said, “That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in wind, solar, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches. The only thing that I have said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.”

Despite comments to the contrary – Joe Biden confirmed that the Obama-Biden ticket oppose even clean coal – see the video below where Biden tells an environmental activist who questioned why coal is necessary given clean, effective alternatives like wind and solar, “we’re not supporting clean coal.” Obama/Biden supports clean coal plants in China – but “no coal” for the US. How will this effect America – 50% of American energy is generated from coal fueled energy plants.  

In the interview Obama spoke about his energy plan which includes an “aggressive” cap and trade policy  which will charge polluters in an effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions. These statements confirm or were the source of claims that Obama planned to initiate “carbon use” based tax policy in America a policy that the Europeans are trying to impose in Europe.  A “carbon use” tax policy would add taxes to heating, electricity and fuel bills, driving up prices of every product consumed in the United States. Carbon use based taxes are one of the most regressive taxes (regressive – the poor and middle class pay more than the rich) that a government can imploy – just like sales taxes. Obama notes that “our electricity rates will “skyrocket”.

Why do the Democrats continue to say “NO” to US based energy assets – “NO” to Coal and “NO” to oil drilling –

On the Democratic Primaries

Obama defends the Democratic Party Primary system (from clearly logical complaints made by President Clinton – who is obviously a right wing nut becuase he voices his criticism). Obama is dismissive of the suggested changes – PUMA has it right on this issue.  

Obama on telling the truth –

OK – so I already knew OBama was liar _ I read “Dreams of my father”. Obviously I know the history of Kenya better than Obama does – sure he lies – all the time – to hear him admit it is something else. Obama states, “well I generally I tell the truth” as if truthfulness is a small thing compared to winning the contest …..

Reminds me of the “clinging to bibles and guns” comment …………..


Barack Obama’s Shameful Silence On Violence Against Woman

In 1996 Barack Obama went to Kenya on a US Senate Fact Finding Tour at US Taxpayer Expense.

While Obama was there he took the opportunity to Campaign for his Cousin –  Current Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

The origanal link here was from WBBM, the Video was removed from  You-Tube the day after this post was made on 11/1/08. The WBBM Video showed additional footage of Obama & Odinga on the Campaign stump – The CBS video simply states that Obama campaigned daily for his Cousin. The CBS video contains the same footage of a Kenyan Government offical referring to Obama as a “stooge” for Odinga. An additional link to the original WBBM video is being sought.

While Obama toured Kenya and campaigned for Odinga – Obama failed to speak out against the ongoing violence against woman in the Kenyan political process – Not once did he speakout.

What violence you ask? ……….. This violence


What happened after the election? …….. This is what happened …….

and this ………….

Obama helped incite the tribal tensions but did nothing to help qwell the post election violence.

Kenya has not seen this type of violence since the Mau-Mau Rebellion of the 1950’s.


The United Nations states, “While there were voting irregularities, the election out is believed to be accurrate”. Odinga did not win the election. These violent activites are the second attempted “coup” by Odinga and his family in Kenya – the first occurred in 1982. Obama campaigned for a man who participated in an a previous, unsuccessful, violent attempt to overthrow the Kenyan Government. 


Part 4 A – Barack Obama – The Unauthorized Biography of a Marxist -Obama Sr and Stanley Ann Dunham – 11 Months in Hawaii?

In early 1959 a 29 year-old Kenyan by the name of Tom Mboya came to the United States to raise scholarship moneys to educate young Kenyan’s in the United States. Mboya had been educated in Catholic primary and secondary schools in Kenya. He also attended Holy Ghost College, Cambridge and Oxford Universities.                                                                                                            

There were no Universities in 1959 Kenya. In 1959 Kenya was in the midst of the Mau-Mau Rebellion.                                                                                                               —Tom-Mboya-s-fatal-links-with-CIA/111469                                                                             ,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction,_Sr.                                                                                                                 

The Mau Mau Rebellion was partly a Nationalist movement, partly a Tribal Movement. 1959 Kenya had other concurrent independance movements. Some supported Western alliances while others had a Soviet-Marxist orientation.  Mboya was certainly a Nationalist and his preference for Western educational practices cannot be disputed. Mboya’s Socialist beliefs were similar to the British Labor Party’s. Mboya’s beliefs and his dynamic leadership would earn him the life long enmity of Kenya’s Pro-Soviet Marxist groups. Ten years after this trip to the United States, Mboya would be assassinated by Nahashon Isaac Njenga Njorogein in Nairobi. Some would blame the act on Kenya’s Presdient Kenyatta, others would blame the Pro-Soviet Marxists members of the Kenyan Peoples Union (KPU). Communist publications would place the blame (or justification for the killing) on a mythical connection between Mboya and the American CIA. Presdient Kenyatta ordered the arrest of KPU leader and Mboya’s fellow Luo tribesman, Oginga Odinga. Odinga was never formally charged inregard to the killing. Oginga Odinga is the father of Raila Amollo Odinga the current Prime Minister of Kenya. Raila Odinga assumed office following the highly disputed 2007 Kenyan Presidential Elections. Independant Election observors declared Odinga’s opponent the winner. Odinga seized power by force. Subsequent protests led to the deaths of thousands of Kenyans and the displacement of an additional 500,000. Odinga was educated in East Germany in 1960. East Germany was a Communist Block country at the time.                                                                                                        —Tom-Mboya-s-fatal-links-with-CIA/111469                                                                                                     ,+Furedi,+Mau+Mau,+Consolidation+of+Reaction,_Sr.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

BBC Film Tom Mboya’s Funeral

Barack Obama Sr. was not only a fellow Luo Tribesman, he was Oginga Odinga brother in law. This has been confirmed by Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Oginga Odinga’s son, who states that Obama, Sr is his “maternal uncle”.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Odinga’s BBC Radio interview, where he makes this claim is here:

Pictorial History – 2007 Kenyan Election Violence Here:  


Again, Mboya came to the United States in 1959 with the intent of rasing scholarship money to educate the next generation of Kenyan leaders in the United States.  Mboya rejected the extreme violence of the Mau-Mau Rebellion in favor of a non-violent form of resistance. Mboya choose the path of Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr., not the path of Lenin and Stalin. Mboya, the General Secretary of the Kenyan Federation of Labor, received international acclaim in May 1958 when he organized a non-violent boycott of Nairobi’s buses, cigarettes and beer. The boycott has been compared to Ghandi’s salt march/boycott in 1930’s India (March 1930). Mboya has been compared to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     


Mboya’s attempts to persuade Americans to contribute to his scholarship fund were remarkably succesful. 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.  Eight thousand Americans contributed to the fund, including some very famous leaders of the black community – those contributors included Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, and Jackie Robinson. ,,_Sr.            

In late August 1959, Barack Obama, Sr. said farewell to his wife Kezia at Nairobi Airport and departed to begin his educational studies as one of 81 Tom Mboya Scholarship recipients. Obama would leave his 18 month old son, Roy, behind. Kezia was 3 months pregnant with their second child, a daughter Auma.                                                                                                                                    

Barack Obama Jr. Campaigns for Odinga In Kenya At Us Taxpayer Expense – Senate Fact Finding Trip
Violence Following Kenyan Election

In his autobiography, “Dreams of My Father”, Barack Obama Jr. claims that, “The Kennedy’s (President John F Kennedy’s family) 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 ficticious. 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. The Kennedy involvement, while laudable, was limited to arranging transportation for subsequent students. At no time did the Kennedy family provide scholarships – that money being raised through Tom Mboya’s efforts. Myboya did, in fact, become a confidant of President Kennedy.                    ,_Sr.    

Obama repeated this falsehood in a 2007 civil rights speech in Selma, Alabama.  The true facts can be confirmed by documents in the Kennedy Library and other first hand sources.                                                          

During the Selma speech Obama went on to falsely embellish the story 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 that the Bloggers were correct.                                                                                                                                                  htttp://

Odinga Supporters Violence In Kenya 

In September 1959 Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. begins his studies at the University of Hawaii. Eleven months later, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. is born.

By the time Obama arrived in Hawaii in 1959, Frank Marshall Davis had been working for Marxist-Soviet causes in Hawaii for 11 years. , ,                                           , ,              at page 15.                                        

In September 1960 Obama, Sr. began his second year at the University of Hawaii. He met a young, 17-year-old, Stanley Ann Dunham in his Russian language class. Ann, as she would later be called, had  arrived in Hawaii in June 1960. Frank Marshall Davis was a friend of Ann’s family. Davis was known to drink and smoke marijuana (or “choom” in the local vernacular) with Ann’s father and namesake, Stanley Dunham.

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.

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 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.                                                                                                                     

July 1959 – 11 Mau Mau activists held at Hola Camp in Kenya are killed. British opposition political parties cite the deaths in their attacks on the UK government along with Britian’s continuing role in Africa in upcoming British elections.

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.

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.
