As I reported here on Thursday, April 28th (Breaking news – Obama Sr. was an illegal immigrant FOIA reveals), Obama Sr. had quite a bit of soiled laundry in his dittybag. Immigration and Naturalization records obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request reveal he was considered an unsavory, an undesirable, an illegal alien that they wanted to deport sooner rather than later. The INS wasn’t alone in that assessment. The vaunted Harvard University also wanted to kick him back to Kenya.
Contrary to the splendid fantasy Obama and Bill Ayers spun in Obama’s supposed “autobio” Dreams from my Father, (it seems the book was aptly titled — these were nothing more than pipe dreams), the old man was hardly what the young Barack made him out to be.
Today Politico has taken the story a step further, much to the dismay and chagrin of Obama-bots who are dropping comments over there as fast as their sticky fingers can type, adamantly accusing Hah-vahd of racism and whatever else they can dish up to bolster their pitiful racist rationales, their fervently held beliefs that whitey don’ like dat dey be a Blackie in da white house.
Alan West for President. Herman Cain and Alan Keyes too.
Play that race card, suckas. I dare you.
Ah, but I digress. On to the main event. Delicious in its details, it is to savor. The fruit did not fall far from Papa’s tree… “A slippery character” is how Senior was described by one Hah-vahd official.
No wonder Obama is hiding his records. Seems there’s plenty there that he doesn’t want coming out. Whoo-weee! I’m betting there’s a whole lotta cringing and sphincter-tightening going on in the White House. Betcha Trump’s not the only one dropping F-bombs these days.
Wanna know what I think?
I’m thinking that a mutually beneficial deal was struck between Stanley Ann’s parents (her father, principally) and Obama Sr. — a quid pro quo, if you will. Ann needed cover for the mixed race baby in her belly, and the dark-skinned Obama Sr. needed an alibi – an American wife to enable him to remain in the USA. He gave her his name, she gave him his green card. Voila! Fait accompli! He went his way, she went hers.
Later, she constructed a fantasy story about a prince of a father for her otherwise bastard son that no one could refute, or so she thought… Except for two other people. Stanley Armour and Madelyn Payne Dunham. Stanley died years ago, so he took the secret to the grave with him. But Madelyn? Hmmm… that was a little trickier. She was still drawing oxygen when Barry the bastard child was just “this’ close to winning the White House.
What to do… what to do? What if Grandma Toot Madelyn slipped up and revealed something “embarrassing” while on medication or simply because she was a bit rattled at reporters’ questions? Recall if you will, that Obama’s “people” would not allow reporters to interview her. What to do…???
“Obama and his campaign staff decided to make his family available to me, most likely because Obama was a candidate for the highest legislative body in the land and the Tribune was the largest and most influential newspaper in Illinois. Turning down the Tribune’s request for family interviews would not seem a wise political decision at this point in his Senate campaign. However, Obama’s top aides must have been wary about what I would turn up. After many discussions among those aides, they elected to send a deputy press aide, Nora Moreno Cargie, to track my reporting and monitor the content of my interviews. No reporter would be thrilled by this idea, and I certainly wasn’t. I balked mildly but realized that if I wanted access to Obama’s family, I had no choice but to acquiesce to Moreno Cargie’s presence.” — David Mendell, Obama, From Promise to Power, Chpt 2, pp 20-21
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Right, Barry?
BOSTON — President Barack Obama’s father was forced to leave Harvard University before completing his Ph.D. in economics because the school was concerned about his personal life and finances, according to newly public immigration records.
Harvard had asked the Immigration and Naturalization Service to delay a request by Barack Hussein Obama Sr. to extend his stay in the U.S., “until they decided what action they could take in order to get rid of him,” immigration official M.F. McKeon wrote in a June 1964 memo.
Harvard administrators, the memo stated, “were having difficulty with his financial arrangements and couldn’t seem to figure out how many wives he had.”
An earlier INS memo from McKeon said that while the elder Obama had passed his exams and was entitled on academic grounds to stay and complete his thesis, the school was going to try and “cook something up to ease him out.”
“They are planning on telling him that they will not give him any money, and that he had better return to Kenya and prepare his thesis at home,” the memo stated.
In May 1964, David D. Henry, director of Harvard’s international office, wrote to Obama to say that, while he had completed his formal course work, the economics department and the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences didn’t have the money to support him.
“We have, therefore, come to the conclusion that you should terminate your stay in the United States and return to Kenya to carry on your research and the writing of your thesis,” Henry’s letter stated.
Obama’s request for an extended stay was denied by the INS. He left Harvard and – divorced from president’s mother – returned to his native Kenya in July 1964. He did not complete his Ph.D.
The immigration memos, contained in the elder Obama’s Immigration and Naturalization file, were given to a Boston Globe reporter in 2009 through a Freedom of Information request. The papers were first made public Wednesday by The Arizona Independent, a weekly newspaper. The Associated Press obtained copies of them on Friday.
Harvard issued a statement Friday saying that it could not find in its own records anything to support the accounts given in the INS memos.
“While we cannot verify accounts of conversations that occurred nearly 50 years ago, a review of our existing files did not find any support for either the language or the implied intent described by the U.S. government official in the government documents,” the statement read.
When Obama was attending Harvard, the school faced serious constraints in financing research by international graduate students, the university also said.
Department of Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler declined to comment Friday, saying the department does not comment on specific immigration cases.
Concerns about Obama’s personal life while he had been studying in the U.S. had been raised previously, according to the INS documents.
In 1961, while he was an undergraduate student at the University of Hawaii, the school’s foreign student adviser called an immigration official and said Obama had recently married StanleyAnn Dunham – the president’s mother – despite already having a wife in Kenya.
According to a memo written by an INS official in Honolulu, the adviser said Obama had been “running around with several girls since he first arrived here and last summer she cautioned him about his playboy ways.”
Obama told the adviser that he had divorced his wife in Kenya.
He told the president’s mother the same thing, though she would later learn it was a lie.
Obama worked for an oil company and as a government economist after returning to Africa, but his personal and professional life would later deteriorate. He died in a car crash in 1982, when the future president was 21 and a student at Columbia University.
