From Barry to Barack: A Hawaii perspective



From Barry to Barack A Hawaii perspective

Our 44th President of these United States of America was born here in Hawaii. As far as I’m concerned, there really is little if any doubt about that. But, that leaves us with the issue of why he went to such time and expense to cover up his certificate of live birth.

On August 4, 1961, Stanley Ann Dunham gave birth to a male child at Kapi`olani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, now known as Kapi`olani Medical Center for Women and Children in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was given the name Barack Hussein Obama II after her husband, a foreign student from Kenya.

But, only the actual birth certificate would reveal whose name appears as the father of the child. Few have seen that birth certificate tightly held by the Hawaii Department of Health. The Hawaii Health Department official who verified the authenticity of certified copies of the birth certificate died in a small plane crash a couple years after doing so off the Island of Moloka`i.

I may actually have been one of the first people to call the Hawaii Department of Health back in 2007 when I first learned that U.S. Senator from Illinois Barack Obama who was running for President had been born here in Hawaii, a fact I had not previously heard about. The Hawaii Health Department official with whom I spoke on the phone politely told me that information could be released only to members of his family.

This is most definitely not a so-called “birther” article. As we move on to other circumstances in the early life of of our 44th President, just keep this birth certificate issue in the back of your mind and we will revisit it later.

After breaking up with Barack Hussein Obama, Stanley Ann Dunham wed her second husband Lolo Soetoro of Indonesia in 1965. Two years later, she took young Barry as he was called then to live with them in Jakarta.

Digressing just a bit, let’s just note that Ann Dunham stopped using her given first name which she apparently had imposed upon her by her father Stanley Dunham who hoped she would be a boy. Young Barry later began using his legal name Barack, but more about that later.

While living in Jakarta, elementary school-age Barry Soetoro was considered Muslim as Islam was the religion of his stepfather and children were considered to be the same religion as their male parent. While there, he was attended to by his transgender nanny. This disparity of value systems stayed with young Barry after he left Indonesia.

His Jakarta experience obviously is also the source of his later-in-life assertion that the Muslim call to prayer is the most beautiful sound on earth. His affinities for the Islamic world were always readily apparent.

In 1971, Ann Dunham brought young Barry back to Hawaii where he lived with his grandparents Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, with most of his youth spent at the 12-story Punahou Circle Apartments at 1617 S. Beretania St. in the Makiki District of Honolulu. This is about a mile south of the square building that is the Hawaii State Capitol.

I’ve been by that area many times and it is not a quiet residential neighborhood. Directly across the busy, well-trafficked street is the historic Central Union Church, which I have personally been to twice, the first for a wedding and the last for a funeral. The latter occasion was more than a decade before our 44th President took office and nobody here back then really had heard of the Honolulu native who later attained that pinnacle of American politics.

From the apartment where Barry stayed with his white grandparents, he was only a couple blocks from the hospital where he was born and another short walking distance beyond that to the prestigious and extremely expensive Punahou School where he was enrolled.

Meanwhile his mother Ann Dunham continued to pursue her career in cultural anthropology in far-flung locales such as Indonesia and Pakistan. Ann Dunham died at the young age of 52 in 1995.

So, Barry’s adult guardianship during his years in Hawaii was provided by his grandparents Stanley and Madelyn. Stanley was close friends with an African-American man named Frank Marshall Davis. Young Barry spent a lot of time in the presence of Davis.

This is important on several levels. Frank Marshall Davis, who died in 1987, was the most essential ingredient in the formation of the man who was to leave Hawaii and pursue his ambitions far beyond these islands. Without delving too much into the background of our 44th President’s mentor, the influences included a Communist view of society, pornographic inclinations and drug usage. Obama has been open about his involvement in the Punahou choom gang. But he has not been as candid about the other things he learned at Frank Marshall Davis’s knee.

Apart from his political and social proclivities, Frank Marshall Davis’s influence over the young man was instrumental as well in his choice of leaving Hawaii for Chicago, where Davis himself had spent some of his younger years. It is also apparent that Davis was the main determinant of young Obama’s self-identity.

Living in the household of his white grandparents and being sent by them to a prestigious and expensive private school, Punahou, he realized that in multi-ethnic, multi-racial Hawaii, he was seen as an African American, not as a haole. When he went to Chicago, he became a community organizer. He sought to insert himself into identity politics.

At this point, remember how we began this discussion today with why such effort was made to prevent the release of the actual birth certificate from 1961. It very well may have to do with the name of the father. It was socially acceptable for Ann Dunham to marry Barack Hussein Obama and name her son after him.

When Neil Abercrombie, who had known both of our 44th President’s parents at University of Hawaii, was elected Governor of Hawaii in 2010, he soon thereafter indicated that he was amenable to releasing the birth certificate publicly. It didn’t take long before he withdrew that suggestion.

Perhaps some may consider it a moot point now that the 22nd Amendment has limited the person on that birth certificate to two terms as President of the United States. But, it does appear most likely that he was a natural born citizen of the United States, born in this country to a U.S. citizen mother.

Perhaps more important and something that has never really been examined closely is whether young Barry Soetoro ever relinquished his U.S. citizenship while living in Jakarta with an Indonesian stepfather. Has anyone ever really reviewed college records to determine whether he ever received tuition assistance as a foreign student?

After moving from Occidental College in Los Angeles to Columbia University in New York, in 1981 young Obama made a 3-week trip with his college roommate to his friend’s home country ~ Pakistan. This is important to look at [though it has not been truly explored to date], for several reasons, one of which is whether he may have used an Indonesian passport when it was precarious for a U.S. citizen to travel to that area in Southwest Asia.

After visiting his mother in Indonesia, he traveled on to Pakistan and stayed in places such as Karachi & Hyderabad. Remember that the Russians had invaded neighboring Afghanistan two years earlier and the whole area was in turmoil then as it is now but for somewhat different reasons.

Vying for the Democrat nomination in 2008, he sought to boost his foreign policy credentials vis-á-vis both Hillary Clinton and John McCain by boasting that having visited Pakistan, he knew the difference between Sunni and Shia Islam even before becoming a member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Pakistan at the time of Obama’s visit in 1981 was under martial law. It was a base of the Islamic Jihad against the Russian invaders of Afghanistan. Many young African-Americans who were fascinated with the Jihad found their way to Pakistan.

Consideration will be left for some other time regarding Obama’s order to kill Osama bin Laden, his lack of response in Benghazi and his fascination for mosques in such far-flung locales as his childhood Indonesia, in Malaysia and in Turkey.

Very few analyses these days present information that has not previously been considered. Now we shall look at one rather intriguing situation that may be coincidence ~ or not. If coincidence, the odds of its occurrence would be absolutely astronomical.

The Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is the holiest spot in Islam. Muslims all over the world bow in that direction when they pray to Allah.

Nearly two years ago, I read somewhere that Mecca is located at 21° North Latitude. My first thought was that so is Honolulu, Hawaii. So I did a little research using a GPS program.

I found that the Kaaba is precisely at 21.4225° N Lat, so I looked at O`ahu to see where that exact line would run across this island, thinking particularly of my own residence which I won’t specify the location of here. But as I looked across the island of O`ahu from east to west, I saw that precise latitude runs through the community of Kailua on the windward side.

I was actually stunned as I zoomed in and saw that 21.4225° N Lat is right at the vacation rental ~ 53 Kailuana Place in Kailua ~ in which Barack Obama stayed during his visits home to Hawaii. The exact spot is at the corner of the beach right by the rental property. He has also stayed nearby with access to the same beach. This data has been verified and reverified numerous times, including today.

Wrapping it up then, we see that the young man who went by the name Barry Soetoro and then Barry Obama, when he went on to a political future in Chicago and married Michelle, reverted to his birth name of Barack Obama. The metamorphosis from adolescent to adult is epitomized in this choice.

The man who vowed to ~ and in fact did ~ fundamentally change the United States of America owes much of his worldview and his consequent agenda to his early years in Hawaii and Indonesia. Both the family members and the mentor that he spent his formative years with greatly influenced the President and Commander-in-Chief that he would become.

I often wonder whether he is even aware that his Hawaii vacation home is at the precise latitude of the Kaaba in Mecca. He probably is not. There’s no indication, certainly no proof, that this was a conscious decision on his part.

But what are the chances of such a coincidence? Hawaii folks love to visit Las Vegas where gambling is legal as it is not here. I’m not really a betting man, but what would be the odds against the President of the United States who had early Islamic influences staying in a house in a direct line to Mecca?

The natural-born requirement which the Framers of the United States Constitution applied to all who will serve as President was to ensure his or her sole allegiance to this country and none other. Complying with that criterion but considering oneself a citizen of the world who does not believe in American exceptionalism was an anomaly to be avoided in the future. That’s why these issues are still important even though we now have a new incumbent with totally separate issues.

The young man known as Barry Soetoro in Indonesia and Barry Obama in Hawaii became 44th President of the United States Barack Obama. He was influenced by a myriad of factors during his formative years which we have  briefly considered here. A much deeper exploration of his Hawaii nexus needs to be undertaken for the sake of history as well as to serve as a lesson that we must better vet our future leaders.

2020 should be like the real 1984, but instead we’re getting the Orwellian version



2020 should be like the real 1984 but instead were getting the Orwellian version

Something amazing happened in 1984. Every state in the nation other than Minnesota recognized the prosperity and foreign relations prowess of President Ronald Reagan and rewarded him with the biggest landslide in American election history. Poor Walter Mondale didn’t have a chance against the killer economy, our growing strength against enemies, and pride Americans had in their nation and its leader.

We have the same formula brewing today. The economy is actually in better shape than it was under President Reagan. There may be no official Cold War, but we’re pressuring our enemies in Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea in ways that are in line with the pressure President Reagan exerted on the U.S.S.R.

But many Americans, particularly those who make up the radical progressives among Democrats, do not feel pride in their nation. Moreover, they feel nothing but contempt for our leader. Why is this? Shouldn’t everyone be working through our prosperity to engage in the unified patriotism that made the 1984 elections such a lopsided affair? To understand why this isn’t the case, read George Orwell’s 1984.

Go ahead. It’s short. I’ll wait.

The dystopian society that disregarded the truth in Orwell’s terrifying novel was missing one important component. He was detailing the world as it could be based on what he was seeing around him at the time. But he didn’t show us the bridge, the factors and conditions that connected his real world with the future society he envisioned. Instead, he left it mostly to our imagination to determine how a society could go from normal to extreme in such a relatively short period of time.

The bridge he left for us to imagine is no longer relegated to fiction. We’re seeing it in front of us right now. The path to doublethink and Newspeak is paved by those embracing the tenets of a post-truth society. We’re witnessing gender dysphoria being normalized to the point that one must accept the feelings of those experiencing it or we’re called bigots. We’re seeing the post-truth society blur the lines between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants, ignoring the fact that one group (of which I’m included) went through the proper legal process to enter and live in the country the right way while the other group did the exact opposite, disregarding our laws and stealing our sovereignty for themselves. The most troubling example of the post-truth society is watching Democrats and the media ignore the demonstrable prosperity President Trump and GOP policies have brought to minorities. It’s unprecedented how well minorities are fairing in this economy and with the freedoms they’re enjoying, yet we’re being told that everyone on the right must be a racist.

These false narratives, being spread by “Fake News,” represent the greatest threat to the GOP’s election hopes. The desperation of the left that forces them to tell blatant lies would actually be comical if so many people weren’t buying into it all. Ask a Democrat if the President is racist, and many will say he is. Ask them for examples and all they have are lies like “Muslim bans” and “anti-immigrant” policies.

If we stay focused on presenting the truth to Americans, we can achieve what Reagan achieved in the landslide 1984 election. If the left’s lies prevail, we’ll be taking the first big step towards George Orwell’s vision of 1984 instead.

Gavin Newsom is proof California is completely lost



Gavin Newsom is proof California is completely lost

California Governor Gavin Newsom has one of the most prolific string of political failures ever seen in the United States. It seems like everything he touches turns to sludge. San Francisco, where he was on the Board of Supervisors or Mayor for 14 straight years, has become literally covered in human feces and is the homelessness capitol of America. As governor, his short tenure has already seen a state whose economy was crumbling fall further faster. But when it comes to getting elected, he’s a champion.

Why? Because California is completely lost. Those of us who live here realize it’s true. Despite unquestionable evidence that the state’s progressive policies are making things steadily worse, from high-and-still-growing taxes to unprecedented crime rates to the homeless problem that is not isolated to San Francisco, we continue to elect Democrats to drive us deeper into the hole. Despite the high taxes, we’re constantly running on budget deficits. How is this possible for a state so rich?

The answer is in the promises the Democrats make. And unfortunately, they keep many of their promises, which yields billions of dollars spent on a high-speed rail that was ill-conceived if it actually happened. But it didn’t. It’s massive amounts of money that accomplished nothing. Even when the programs “work,” they fail. More money has been spent per capita to stave off homelessness in San Francisco than anywhere else, yet it keeps getting worse.

Perhaps the biggest problem California has is believing the politicians. We get fed rhetoric that is so thick, it must be true because nobody would lie so blatantly. Except they really do lie. One of the latest was so big and ridiculous, even left-leaning PolitiFact had to call Newsom out.

Pants On Fire: Not Even Politifact Is Buying What Gavin Newsom Is Selling On San Francisco’s Homeless Problem

Politifact isn’t exactly the type of fact checking organization that rushes to defend Republicans or to take Democrats to task, so that they decided to take Newsom to the woodshed is worth mentioning.

When a lie is so egregious even your cheerleaders have to balk, you know you’ve gone a bit too far. But don’t expect Newsom to repent and come clean any time soon. As is part of the Democratic playbook, particularly in California, the most likely response is that he’s going to double down on his false claims. That’s what Democrats do when they’re caught in a lie.

If you’re curious, here’s Newsom’s most recent huge lie:

Gavin Newsom’s ridiculous claim: ‘Vast majority’ of San Francisco’s homeless people come from Texas

California Gov. Gavin Newsom claimed the “vast majority” of San Francisco’s homeless people come in from Texas.

San Francisco’s own homeless surveys contradict this. They show a large majority reported living in the city before becoming homeless, and just a fraction coming in from out-of-state.

Newsom’s office pointed to data from San Francisco’s bus ticket program for homeless people. But that defense doesn’t hold up. It shows just a small fraction, less than 7 percent, left for Texas, and doesn’t demonstrate that they originally came to San Francisco from that state.

In the end, we found Newsom made a ridiculous claim.

We rated it Pants on Fire.

Don’t blame California lawmakers for the state’s failures. They’re doing exactly what California residents want. People like Gavin Newsom are only fulfilling their promises to spend more, accomplish less, and keep the Democratic monopoly strong.

Dianne Feinstein’s comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point



Dianne Feinsteins comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Gun control is the talk of the town as the week comes to a close. Well, that and Greenland. And Jeffrey Epstein. But the mass shootings two weeks ago has DC buzzing, media furiously reporting, and activists on both sides of the debate furiously Tweeting at each other. Senator Dianne Feinstein weighed in on the discussion by pointing out some important facts about the alleged Dayton shooter, Connor Betts.

Her facts are correct. Her analysis is off because it missed one important point. We’ll get to that in a minute, but let’s declare once and for all (though I’m sure I’ll have to repeat myself later) that the 2nd Amendment IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING OR HOME PROTECTION. Our right to keep and bear firearms was put into the Constitution by our founders because they recognized what could happen if the people had no recourse against an oppressive government. Just as Venezuelans didn’t realize they danger they were putting themselves into when they allowed their guns to be taken away, so too do many Americans put way too much trust in government.

The authoritarian left wants guns because they know they’ll never achieve their endgame as long as the people can defend themselves from tyranny.

Feinstein is correct that the Dayton shooter was able to cause an extreme amount of death and injury in a short period of time. Police were quick to respond, otherwise it could have been much worse. But as our EIC pointed out in a Tweet, Feinstein’s narrative is worthless when you look at it from the opposite perspective.

Gun control is not the solution to our mass shooting problem. If anything, gun control has enabled shooters to enact their crimes without fear of many “good guys with a gun” to stop them. We must never give up our 2nd Amendment rights.
