Two years ago I had the pleasure to review some of the National History Day presentations made by high school students in Maryland. A young lady had presented an exhibit on the Fatherhood Leadership Crisis in America and cited Barack Obama as a successful person who grew up without a father’s leadership. But the evidence suggests that in fact Obama did grow up with a father’s leadership, and that the father was none other than his communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and not Barack Hussein Obama Sr., the Kenyan who had “abandoned” the family.
With the release of papers associated with the Kenyan Obama, it is clear beyond the shadow of a doubt that President Barack Obama was not his son. The nation has been treated to a monumental deception. Indeed, Obama campaigned as someone he is not. One can understand some of the reasons for the deception. Davis was a communist whose illicit affair with Obama’s mother was not something to be proud of. But shame should have taken a back seat to the need for the American people to learn the truth. Obama decided not to take that route. He told the American people a whopper about his dad being from Kenya. It was a calculated political deception, much like the claim he made while campaigning for office in 2008 that he was a committed Christian. Once he was elected, he became “The Politician Without a Church,” someone more likely to be on a golf course than worshipping Christ, and a president eager to accommodate the demands of the Muslim world.
Although Obama is nearing the end of his presidency, the questions which follow proof of his lies are still relevant, since he will rally Democrats to vote for Hillary Clinton, the apparent Democratic nominee, and has several months to do more damage. Before campaigning for a woman who may be charged with being a security risk, he should be asked about the lies that he told that, if exposed in 2008 or 2012, might have convinced millions of voters that he wasn’t to be trusted with the power of the presidency. In his own way, Obama was more of a security risk than Mrs. Clinton. But as a candidate and as President, he never underwent a background security check, enabling him to decide on his own what information was “secure” and what was not.
Since Democrats are charging that Donald J. Trump is a charlatan of some sort, shouldn’t Barack Obama’s lies about his controversial background be exposed, once and for all? Isn’t Obama the real charlatan? Didn’t he conceal major aspects of his background in order to win the presidency?
If anything, Obama seems to be a much bigger charlatan. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is accused of making business deals that ripped people off, such as in the case of Trump University. Legal proceedings will determine the truth of these claims. Obama, by contrast, committed electoral fraud, promising “hope and change” that has turned out to be a version of the kind of socialism that is currently ravaging Venezuela. Obama’s fraud has put the entire country at risk.
In terms of his personal and family history, Obama has misled many young people, such as those at the National History Fair, who thought Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was a scoundrel who had deserted him. It turns out that the Kenyan Obama had not abandoned the family because the family was not his. The real father was Frank Marshall Davis, whose background in the Communist Party and support for “Red Russia” had made it impossible for Obama to credit as a fatherly influence.
“Fathers provide the discipline, guidance, and love it takes to flourish,” President Obama said in his 2016 Father’s Day message. “With persistence and patience, generosity and integrity, they build our cores and help us understand right from wrong.”
Communist Frank Marshall Davis built the “core” of Barack Obama, making the young man into someone who would move to Chicago, where he would join political networks consisting of socialists, communists, and even terrorists like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. However, Davis did not teach a young Barack Obama about “love.” Rather, he taught Obama to hate whitey, a fact that was confirmed by none other than Obama himself, in a 1995 video that didn’t surface, conveniently, until 2015, three years after his re-election. By his own admission, Obama was “angry” and liked to see white people squirm and feel uncomfortable.
Obama may not have known Davis was his real father at first. But he had to have realized the truth at some point in his academic career, if not before. Based on appearances alone, Obama would have noticed that he didn’t look anything like the Kenyan, but bore a striking resemblance to “Frank,” as he was known in Obama’s book Dreams from My Father. In fact, the rationale at that time for failing to reveal his full name, Frank Marshall Davis, could have been that Davis was not only a mentor but a father to Obama.
In a strange sense, Obama has been a success, but not in the way the young lady in the History Fair had presented it. Obama became a “successful” president because he fooled most of the people, with the assistance of news media that even to this day won’t tell the truth about his Marxist and pro-Muslim political orientation. He has given us a polarized and racially divided America, vulnerable to enemies around the world anxious to exploit these weaknesses.
