Out of Africa? Understanding Obama's Radical Marxist Origins
May 22nd, 2012
By Barry Secrest
You can feel it in the wind in America.
The Conservative Movement, against all odds, even now, is actually in the process of performing the Herculean task of bending logic and truth back into an ideological equation that had previously lacked any semblance of rational balance, nor few if any redeeming qualities. In a world that has increasingly gone "collectively mad," Liberty's light has at least, if not but only for a time, ceased fickering.
However, the reasoning for America's newly found wakefulness owes just as much to US economic reality as it does to an increasingly worried, if not irritated, civic sensitivity to failure. This failure can be found engrained within the artificially rendered platitudes and mistruths that Obama, the Socialist-Democrats, and even the moderate establishment types, have been preaching to America for over six long years, now.
These incessant mistruths are fed by the taproot of an agenda deeply grounded in ultimate failure for America, which is a failure that even many of America's slipshod politico's believe will magically turn of its own accord to this day. These lies which lay coiled around the largely ignored truth that is Obama's radical past, and even his aims, effectively conceal the facts to all but those who have been Constitutionally innoculated to an oft considered unnaturally odd influence, especially to those who are easily manipulated.
This shroud of animus, purposefully misdirected by the media for well over a decade, is now being painstakingly reconstructed by those in the Conservative media, but in light of Obama and his Czar's true agenda, rather than an historically entertaining timeline that has been artfully edited out by the Axis Press, which brings us to Part Two of an earlier article on Obama's roots.
In the preceding article, we delivered, in summary form, a telling look into the highlights of Obama's past and asked why a 2004 Associated Press article indicated that Obama was Kenyan born? We delved into the President's earlier Saul Alinsky organizing past and concluded with Obama's name change, progressing briefly into his days at Columbia University, along with an unanswered question concerning his Indonesian citizenship, which is where this article resumes.
Part Two: Techs, Lies and Video Tape.....
When Barack Obama decided to take a break from his work at the Gamaliel foundation in 1988 , an organization we reviewed at length previously, he traveled to Europe, and then decided to visit the area in Africa where, at the time, he often referred to as his home, being Kenya.
In this 1988 visit, Obama's first purported visit to Kenya, he would both meet and spend time with the family members of his Father, Barack Obama, Sr., who was born, raised, and lived in Kenya for most of his life; well, except for his time in Hawaii and a brief stint at Harvard before being ejected due to financial issues and for the act of polygamy, in being wed to both Obama's mother, Dunham, and a Kenyan wife, Kezia Obama. The President's father, Barack Senior, had, in fact, fathered a well-populated brood of half-siblings to the President, along with being simultaneously married to at least four different women over his lifetime. Obama, Jr. , after meaningfully communing with his extended family and friends in Kenya for five weeks, returned to the US and and initiated his path to a storied (literally) political career, which essentially began at Harvard Law School.
The Incredible "Skulk" - /skəlk/verb: to hide,keep out of sight,with sinister motive
However, it was also in the late 80's while working as a community organizer in Chicago, that Obama met and befriended Black Liberation Theologist Rev. Jeremiah Wright who pastored the controverisal Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. The story between these two men, Wright and Obama, reads much like a novel dedicated to a potent Father/Son-Love/Hate relationship. A story recently highlighted by the author of the book, "The Amateur," by Ed Klein, revealed interviews of Rev. Wright, which can be seen and heard at Sean Hannity's website, telling the background story that few know concerning Obama and his radical leanings.
Obama and wife, Michelle, attendeded Wright's radical church for twenty years, at least and until the Conservative Media, primarily lead by Black Conservative Author and radio personality, Erik Rush, outed Obama's extraordinary membership in Wright's radical church with Marxist origins, to boot.
The Rev. Wright's interviews speak for themselves and are full of surprising points by Wright concerning Obama, but it's the belief system of Black Liberation Theology (BLT) itself, that would alarm all but the most diehard of Obama's faithful. You see, BLT is not some Methodist versus Baptist versus Presbyterian striation of the Christian church, but rather it is a religious mutation virtually dedicated to promoting class and racial warfare, while contrivially subverting the actual message found in Christianity. You see, BLT is predicated on queerly mixing Christianity with a Black Power Statement, which teaches social justice and redistribution, primarily for the African-American community, as a Jesus-inspired directive.
BLT"s teachings further wrongly establish that Christianity is a religion designed only for Whites and refers back to Black radical and BLT theologian James Cone, who somehow decided that the teachings of Jesus were primarily designed for Blacks. In fact, Cone states Jesus represented himself as Black for the express purpose of his primary emphasis, which was for Blacks to rise up and aggressively disrupt and dismantle White "oppression." A thing that fails the smell test after an entire nation actually votes a black man into office, however, that sort of fact actually ruins the entire victimology paradigm that defines the BLT religion.
But then again, yikes! So, according to Wright, now Jesus hates Whites, even after the Civil War? Indeed, it would appear that way, but only according to Obama's church, once again, where he sat and somehow never heard these fiery sermons for twenty some-odd years. But it gets even better when you root down to the core of the BLT belief system.
James Cone, who Wright frequently refers to (being the BLT anti-Yoda of this bowl-like movement) among others, is so militant within his manufactured belief system that he states, "if God is not just, if God does not desire justice, then God needs to be done away with." Yikes, again! So, if God does not believe in Cone, Wright's and Obama's radical thought process, then Cone believes that God should be done away with completely? Wonder how he might have reckoned to accomplish this particular task?
You see, according to Judeo-Christian teachings, mutiny against God has already been tried once, and the first try didn't exactly work out so well for the perps in that particular case. At any rate, for those of you who were unfamilar with Black Liberation Theology at its core, and how, in Heaven's name, a man who believed in such teachings actually became President, you might actually have heard it explained here, in summary, first. But there is one other thing that you should know about Black Liberation Theology that only a relative few know.
James Cone, in fact, didn't stop with his radical views on God, Jesus, and how they simply must identify with Blacks as victims of White oppression, "or else." He, and other formulaters of this new age belief system for Blacks, went all the way over to Karl Marx's ideology of Communist Marxism as a common school of thought in tandem with Black Liberation Theology and essentially adopted Marxist views as being in concert with Black Liberation's goals of forced redistribution and economic parity as facilitated by a central Statist government. In essence, Black Liberation Theology co-opts the Marxist "proletariat," those being Blacks, and the "Capitalist class," those being Whites, and predicates an entire system of belief modeled on the failed ideology of Marxism, with Jesus as its progenitor.
But it gets even worse. Some believe that the roots of the BLT movement, that being Liberation Theology, which is attributed to a South American political movement begun in the late sixties, was actually orginated in the old Communist think tanks of the Soviet Union. The Communists' thinking, at the time, was that Liberation Theology was a surefire way to create chaos within the Capitalist stronghold of the US and its allies. However, referencing this particular bit of information is difficult, at best, but if one who believes in these views were ever to reach the pinnacle of power, what then?
At any rate, "now you know the rest of the story," concerning Obama's early belief systems in addition to his Saul Alinksy organizing, which highlight a verifiable disdain for business and Capitalism as a whole, and also builds the background for Obama's ascension to the throne of American leadership and what he would eventually do, as President.
A Tree Grows in Chicago
At Harvard, Obama made his presence known by being the first Black president of the Harvard Law review, which garnered him precious national attention, while also initiating Obama's foray into writing by landing his first publishing contract in order to write a book about race relations. In 1990 Simon and Shuster issued a six figure check to Barack Obama in anticipation of publishing a book concerning race titled, "Journeys in Black and White." According to Robert Draper, a writer for GQ, our procrastinator in Chief, however, didn't begin work on the book right away.
After graduating Harvard in 1991, Obama went back to Chicago to begin working with a Chicago law firm. Here, once again, after his hiring at the firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, Obama requested an immediate sabatical, of sorts, so that he could perform some ACORN-stye Chicago voter registration work in anticipation of the 1992 elections. As a fastidious result, Obama spent the years 1991 and 1992 sitting at a donated desk in an office overlooking the University of Chicago Law School on yet another free lunch, so to speak, writing sparsely of his experiences in "Journeys into Black and White." The book had slowly morphed into an auto-biography about his favorite subject, that being himself, of course. However, Obama prophetically missed his deadline with Simon and Shuster in 1992, who unceremoniously terminated his book contract for failure to live up to the contract terms, leaving the future President owing a substantial amount to his ex-publisher.
In 1993, after taking yet another sabattical, this time from his new wife, Michelle, whom he had married in1992, Obama forcibly sequestered himself in a rental cottage located on a solitary beach in a more familiar locale, that being Indonesia. There, Obama hammered out a large portion of the book, which was retitled, "Dreams from My Father." The book was finally published, to a subdued audience at best, in 1995 by Time Books, and slowly became an overnight sensation 9 years later, in 2004, after Obama's preeminent keynote speech debut at the Democratic National Convention.
But how would politics come to the fore of Obama's life? At perhaps the behest of close friend, and now advisor, Valerie Jarret, way back in the early 1990's, Obama would finally decide to enter into politics after his initially ignominious book writing foray. In 1996, on word that a legislator was giving up her Chicago area district seat, Obama ran for and won a position in the Illinois state Senate, and would eventually be elected to the US Senate in 2004, which is where we began our story in the preceding article, and which is also where the questions truly begin concerning Obama's questionable origins.
Origins of the Species
18 years after Obama's initial foray into Africa of 1988, Obama would finally return to Kenya. Here, as a US Senator in 2006, he enigmatically referred to Kenya as his "home" and started the birther ball rolling. Obama, in a news video, can clearly be heard and seen to say the following, while on his Kenya Senatorial visit:
"I'm so proud to come back Home"
So, if Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, is this direct quote some sort of allusion to Obama's father's homeland, or is it his own particular birthplace? The operative point here would be that Obama appears to be referring to "home" in the same sense that a dictionary defines home, that being "a place of origin." At 48 seconds into the clip, Obama clearly delivers the quote in question.
So, once again, was Obama stating this simply for a clearly adulating crowd of Kenyans, or was the future President making an accurate reference to his place of birth and temporary upbringing? Point in fact being, most people would never refer to their father's birthplace as being their "home," while noting the media's frequent aspersions directed towards anyone who would ask these questions as being "patently ridiculous." So, perhaps someone from the Mainstream, or even some of our more prominent Conservative anti-birther skeptics, can explain Obama's own words in light of a growing American skepticism concerning this increasingly worrisome birth certificate drama?
However, if Obama's words on Kenya aren't clear enough, what other evidence might those nutty birthers have? Enter First Lady Michelle Obama, who at two minutes into this campaign clip, taken from late 2007, had this to say about Obama's birth origins.
Michelle Obama: "Someone like Barack Obama, a Kenyan"
Indeed, someone forgot to tell Michelle that a Kenyan cannot become President of the US. Little did we know that, somehow, it simply wouldn't matter. In fact she made the same error regarding her husband's birthplace in 2008, as well.
Michelle Obama: "When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country of Kenya"
Granted, finally, someone mercifully got through to Michelle, at some point in 2008, concerning the fact that she had clearly been repeating an error concerning her husband's birthplace for the last twenty years or so; better late than never, one supposes, or perhaps the nutty Michelle Obama is also a birther. In fact, here, after the previous two clips, the First Lady can be heard on Oprah in 2011 both yelling and gesticulating furiously on her husband's NOW technically revised birthplace, a notable departure from her previous words:
Michelle Obama: "He Was Born Here!"
Indeed, one wonders if perhaps Oprah's show had been recorded in Kenya, since Michelle furiously insists "He Was Born Here" concerning the prior two clips, which were obviously recorded before the birth certificate issue was truly an issue. But then, there is also the following article in which we find that, not only did Obama, at one time, think he was Kenyan, or Michelle Obama, who also indicated Obama as being born in Kenya, but Obama's early publishing house had also indicated Obama to be of Kenyan birth in 1991.
In a publishing house booklet distributed by Obama's literary agent, Acton & Dystel, Obama was represented as being the US Senator "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii." Perhaps these locales are listed in order? Now, one thing to remember as it regards publishing houses--before the publisher can print anything from an author, the author is given what is referrred to as a "proof" so that the author can sign off on and verify that the content meets his or her approval. You see, once a book is typeset and published, one cannot go back and change things very easily. So, we can safely assume that Obama signed off on these facts prior to their being printed.
The question then becomes, "Why?"
The Plot Thickens
However, not even here do the Kenyan ties end. Our preceding article dealt with the 2004 Associated Press article from the East African Standard in which a story touted the fact that Barack Obama had been the first man elevated to the US Senate born as a Kenyan. But, also in the time frame leading up to Obama's election was the fact that Alan Keyes, who was running against Obama for the same seat, criticized Obama as not being natural born; Obama's response, " So what, I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency."
In a story published in October of 2009 at the Post Email, writer John Charleton revisited the facts about Obama's questionable birthplace and fleshed out the details from an earlier article, posted in the Sentinel blog in October of 2009, which called into question Obama's actual birthplace among other facts.
Meanwhile, Back at the State Dept....
However, in the question of Obama's Kenyan quandary, one telling bit of missing information involves a data breach which occurred at the US State Department in connection with Obama's passport and personal documentation that was reported on March the 22nd of 2008, in the Washington Times.
In the breach, the passport records of 2008 Presidential contenders Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama, Jr. were accessed in order to ostensibly muddy the tracks; however, only one file was tampered with, that being none other than Barack Obama's personal State Department files, which contain all manner of difficult to access personal documentation, including place and date of birth documentation, social security information, and related data.
However, tampering can take on a number of forms, so which type of tampering took place in this case, and more tellingly, who did it? In fact, this tampering was the type which data hacks refer to as cauterizing a file, which effectively seals the records, making access to the information virtually impossible. But it's the who, in this case, that delivers a smoking gun.
The security company cited for this breach is called the Analysis Corp; however, it's the CEO of the firm in question that raises eyebrows, that being none other than Obama's present day terrorism Czar and US Deputy National Security advisor, John O. Brennan, who, prior to Obama's being elected, was an "unpaid advisor" to the Obama campaign after serving as a top-rung, 25 year, CIA agent and GW Bush criticizer. Even more interesting, the Senate chairman and overseer of the US Foreign Service, who oversaw the investigation into the security breach, was none other than current Vice President, Joe Biden. Interesting that both of the men involved now gainfully reside at the highest positions in the Obama administration; you be the judge.
So, in answer to the question of "where does all of the Obama eligibility doubt in addition to this resurfacing Kenyan madness, as the media mostly refers to it, actually emanate from?" The answer, in fact, would have to be "from Barack and Michelle Obama, themselves," originally, as can clearly be seen on tape after tape and from numerous undoctered sources. However, the problems with Obama's origins neither begin nor end even here.
First of all, it is a well known fact that Obama's father is not a US citizen, as indicated by the overwhelming evidence of his birthplace being Kenya. No one, in fact, can counter this argument. The problem lies within several areas, speaking to the exact definition of what "natural born" actually means in the US Constitution as it applies to the Presidency. The fact that the numerous challenges continually brought forth in Federal Courts, which seek to strictly define Obama's ineligibility, having been repeatedly quashed in the US court systems, would seem to bear out an almost conspiratorial aspect to the question.
Many media professionals even make the beyond-ridiculous error in referring to 8 US code section 1401 in verifying Obama's eligibility as a citizen. Unfortunately, that particular section of the code has little or nothing to do with ascertaining Obama's eligibility as it regards a President. You see, even if the birth certificate were proven valid beyond the shadow of a doubt, Obama would still have one major problem remaining, and that problem is the fact that both of his parents are not natural born, only one was, in fact. The US Constitution stipulates that a President must be natural born, meaning two parents who were born as US citizens.
Now, this particular fact speaks to the cultural confusion that we American's increasingly see all around us, as well as to the enduring wisdom of the Founders, as it regards being natural born. In fact, US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas jokingly addressed this issue while appearing before a congressional hearing in 2010:
Justice Thomas on Obama's eligibility: "We're evading that one"
In one of his answers, indicated within a C-span YouTube clip, Justice Thomas jokingly stated, "we're evading that one," when it comes to the Presidential question of birthplace and the meaning of natural born. So, what does all of this mean? Again, you be the judge.
But the recent investigations conducted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, coupled with numerous past doubts and then blown back out into the media again with the New Jersey Presidential ballot hearings, which challenge the validity of Obama in both New Jersey and now even Arizona, have renewed interest in this story. These questions of birthplace, natural born eligibility, and birth certificate inauthenticity have brought out a resurgence to growing assertions of Obama ineligibility, despite a concerted attempt by the Mainstream to both avoid the story and even castigate others for bringing the issue up.
But then, despite this desert-like dearth of stories in the traditional media addressing the issue of presidential eligibility, we have also seen well over a third of all US states, 21 at this writing, either attempt to adopt, or actually adopt, more stringent requirements for Presidential aspirants to be accepted onto state ballots. And yet, the question of eligibility is still considered as beyond ridiculous by those who seemingly fear the net outcome the most, that being the Mainstream Media, which completely failed in truthfully reporting these facts to a now completely confounded America.
The interesting thing in all of this? Each of these State Legislature efforts at significantly defining Presidential ballot access have occurred only since 2008. So, are these states aware of some fact that the US civil society and the Media are not telling us?
Finally, despite all of the evidence concerning the questions of Obama's past, even those instances where Obama's foreign origins have been clearly enunciated by the President and the First Lady before their ascension on video and in writing, numerous and yet utterly convincing historical artifacts even beyond those presented here. We will further hear leading Conservative's, columnists, radio personalities and, of course, the Mainstream Media and the entire Left-Wing, offer up apology after apology in abeyance to the actual facts in existence. We have even heard numerous attempts at explanations of why Obama would have earler lied about being born in Kenya, for Heaven's sake.
But consider, just for a moment, the possibility that Obama was not, in fact, lying, at the time, for whatever reason. Once you have imagined that far-fetched possibility, now mix in the one ingredient that we purposefully left out, that being the extraordinary uproar over Obama's birth certificate, and remember this famous quote: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
