Barack Obama's connections to a number of key individuals and organizations. In some cases, these affiliates are notable for the leftist views and objectives they share with Obama. In other cases, they are notable for their collaboration with Obama in controversial or unethical activities. In all cases, they offer a window into Barack Obama's values and priorities. Taken as a whole, they verify Thomas Sowell's observation that Obama has "spent decades aiding and abetting people who hate America."

If I didn't know better, I'd think this was Beirut in the nineteen seventies. But, in reality, it's the current state of the housing for which Barack Obama claims responsibility as a "community organizer." It turns out the developers enriched by his government-funded subsidies did a heck of a lot better than the folks who once lived here.

As of January 1, 2010, President Barack Obama had appointed at least 33 so-called "czars" to manage various governmental responsibilities.
These czars have been described as “super aides” that work across agency lines to push the President’s agenda. CBS News says they
“report directly to Mr. Obama and have the power to shape national policy on their subject area.” The lines defining the boundaries of the czars' power are unclear, however, even to many in Congress. For example, Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine said:
“Who's in charge of health care? Is it the Secretary of Health and Human Services? Or is the White House czar? Who is in charge of environmental and energy issues?”
Czars usually do not require Congressional approval. In most cases there are no confirmation hearings, thus the czars are insulated from
accountability to Congress. Critics say that such an arrangement threatens to increase the power of the President (who appoints these czars) beyond what is Constitutionally mandated. Democrat Senator
Robert Byrd, for instance, said the czar system:
“can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances … As presidential assistants and advisers, these White House staffers are not accountable for their actions to the Congress, to cabinet officials, or to virtually anyone but the president. They rarely testify before congressional committees, and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege.”
Obama's New Immigration Chief Got Argentine Drug Dealer Pardon
A Clinton federal prosecutor who resigned in shame after orchestrating the pardon of a major league drug trafficker will head the Homeland Security agency responsible for overseeing lawful immigration to the United States.
President Barack Obama has proudly crowned Alejandro Mayorkas, U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California from 1998 to 2001, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Boasting Mayorkas’ credentials as a prosecutor of public corruption, organized crime and civil rights violations, the White House announcement conveniently omits the scandalous accolade he's best known for.
As U.S. Attorney Mayorkas was largely responsible for freeing a drug dealer serving a 15-year prison sentence for operating a cocaine ring that stretched from California to Minnesota. The convicted drug dealer, Carlos Vignali, is the son of a wealthy political donor (Horacio Vignali) who convinced influential community leaders—mostly recipients of his generous contributions—to advocate for his son’s pardon. He also gave Hillary Clinton’s brother, Hugh Rodham, a couple hundred thousand dollars to lobby the president for a pardon.
Mayorkas’ intervention was the most crucial and by far carried the most weight, Clinton officials later revealed. Vignali was one of 140 pardons and 36 commutations that Clinton granted during his last hours as president. Outraged federal prosecutors in Minneapolis, where Vignali was convicted for trying to sell 800 pounds of cocaine, said Mayorkas called them several times inquiring about the case. The Minneapolis federal prosecutors subsequently wrote the Justice Department strongly opposing the commutation but they were ignored.
A congressional investigation into Clinton’s last-minute pardons blasts Mayorkas for intervening on behalf of Vignali, pointing out that senior law enforcement and political officials should have been precluded from supporting a commutation for such a criminal. Mayorkas resigned in disgrace and went into private practice at a big Los Angeles law firm. Now he’ll run a major government agency that ensures foreigners who present a safety threat don’t get admitted into the country.

Financing sharia inside the Obama administration
Inside the Administration’s Web of Deceit
On June 22, 2010 the administration announced the appointments of the Class of White House Fellows 2010-2011. One of the 13 Fellows named is Samar Ali.
Let’s look at some history and see if we can connect the dots, shall we?
In March 2009, the Obama Administration established the Global Engagement Directorate, the GED was, as explained in an AP article, the beginning of the “New National Security Strategy”:
In June 2009 President Obama gave his speech in Cairo, Egypt which was written by the GED. This speech has been called by many to be the start of the Administrations “apologies” to the Muslim world. In his speech Obama pledged “to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims.”
April 2010, the Administration established a Muslim Entrepreneurship Program. The first sentence of the White House Fact Sheet of the MEP sums it up well.
“The Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship (April 26-27, 2010) will highlight the important roles that entrepreneurship can play in expanding opportunity at home and abroad, while deepening engagement among the United States and Muslim communities around the world.”
In May 2010 the “National Security Strategy”(pdf document) was released and explained how all terms relating to “Islamic extremism” were off limits. No longer would we see the words “jihad” or “Jihadist”,“Radical Islam” or “terrorism” in Government documents.
June 2010 brought us the $400 million in pledged funds for public projects and programs in the West Bank and Gaza. According to the White House Press Release:
A $240 million investment by the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) in the Affordable Mortgage and Loan Corporation (AMAL) mortgage finance program in the West Bank.
$75 million in funding through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support the Palestinian Authority’s efforts to improve infrastructure throughout the West Bank and Gaza.
$10 million in USAID-funded projects to enhance the Palestinian private sector’s competitiveness.
$40 million to support the emergency appeal for Gaza and the West Bank by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).$14.5 million in USAID projects for school rehabilitation, small-scale farming, hospital repairs and community infrastructure in Gaza.
$10 million for the construction of five new UNRWA schools in Gaza.
$5 million to start nine USAID-funded projects to repair water distribution and wastewater collection systems in Gaza.
The bulk of this money ($240 million) will be administered through the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) which is directly linked and distributed through Sharia Complaint Banks. This is explained on the Middle East Investment Initiative (MEII) website:
“AMAL, which was incorporated in the West Bank by MEII, CHF International, SAKAN, the Bank of Palestine and Cairo Amman Bank, will direct and administer the mortgage lending.”
According to the Cairo Amman Bank website:
“Islamic FX Products – A Shari’a-compliant alternative to the yield enhanced products”
Hang on, this is our tax dollars right? American money, right? So while the administration is telling Israel to halt building apartments our tax dollars are going to Hamas- and Fatah-run areas to build affordable homes? And they are using, directly or indirectly, Sharia Compliant Banks? The answer, yes!
May 2010 Obama nominated Elena Kagan to Supreme Court. The Hill website published an article by Dick Morris on July 20,“Kagan promoted Shariah,” in which Dick Morris states factually:
“At Harvard, Elena Kagan “proceeded to forge the law schools’‘Islamic Finance Project’.” Its purpose, according to McCarthy, was “to promote Shariah compliance in the U.S. financial sector.”
Financing sharia inside the Obama administration
Inside the Administration’s Web of Deceit
“Harvard Law School now has three Saudi-funded institutions devoted to the study of Shariah.”
Understand that the Harvard program of The Islamic Finance Project, eventually led to the Islamic Finance 101 on Capitol Hill. As Frank Gaffney, Jr., President of the Center for Security Policy wrote back in November 2008 for the Washington Times in his article “Treasury submits to Shariah”:
“The department is hosting a half-day course entitled “Islamic Finance 101″ on Thursday at its headquarters building. Treasury’s self-described “seminar for the policy community” is co-sponsored with the leading academic promoters of Shariah and Shariah Compliant Finance (SCF) in the United States: Harvard University Law School’s Project on Islamic Finance.”
“After all, the object of Shariah is the supplanting of our government and Constitution, through violent means if possible and, until then, through stealthy ones.”
So, what does any of this have to do with Samar Ali? First, a look at her bio according to her alma mater, in an article in the Vanderbilt University Law Schools website:
“Samar S. Ali, who earned her J.D. at Vanderbilt Law School in 2006, has been appointed a White House Fellow. Ali is currently an associate with the law firm Hogan Lovells US, where she was a founding member of the firm’s Abu Dhabi office and where her practice addresses mergers and acquisitions, cross-border transactions, Shari’a compliant transactions, project finance and international business matters.”
“During law school, Ali was a legal intern for Stites & Harbison in Nashville from 2005-06, and she later interned for the Islamic International Arab Bank in Amman, Jordan. After earning her J.D., she clerked for The Honorable Gilbert S. Merritt, Class of 1960, on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and for The Honorable Edwin Cameron.”
“Her mother immigrated to the United States from Syria at age 26, and her father left the West Bank town of Ramallah at age 17.”
Interesting, she was “a founding member of the firm’s Abu Dhabi office”,“interned for the Islamic International Arab Bank in Amman, Jordan” and “her practice addresses Shari’a compliant transactions.”
Okay, so we have already established that our current administration is heavily involved with bringing Sharia Compliant Finance in to the “main stream” of America and she has that background. Fine. But what about her background in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit?
Remember Murray v. Geithner et al.? Allow me to refresh your memory with the attorney David Yerushalmi’s website:
“This lawsuit was brought by attorneys David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise, representing the plaintiff, Kevin Murray, a taxpayer and former combat Marine who served in Iraq. The federal lawsuit alleges that the U.S. government’s takeover and financial bailout of AIG was in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.”
“AIG was (and still is) the world leader in promoting Shariah-compliant insurance products. Shariah is Islamic law, and it is the identical legal doctrine that demands capital punishment for apostasy and blasphemy and provides the legal and political mandates for global jihad followed religiously by the world’s Muslim terrorists. By propping up AIG with tax payer funds, the U.S. government is directly and indirectly promoting Islam and, more troubling, Shariah.”
Anyone want to take a wild guess where this law suit is at present? Let’s refer back to the Yerushalmi website for the answer:
Financing sharia inside the Obama administration
Inside the Administration’s Web of Deceit
“Federal district court judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff rejected today the Treasury Department’s and the Fed’s effort to prevent any further discovery while the government attempts to convince the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to overrule Judge Zatkoff’s earlier ruling rejecting the government’s motion to dismiss the federal lawsuit challenging the government’s takeover of AIG on First Amendment-Establishment Clause grounds.”
Just to clarify, even though the above press release is from 2009, the case is still pending.
Hold on, wait a minute, let me get this straight now,“the Fed’s effort to prevent any further discovery while the government attempts to convince the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to overrule…” So there is a case – currently pending against the U.S. Government for bailing out AIG because they are a Sharia Compliant Finance company? And, the Federal government is trying to convince the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to overrule an earlier ruling rejecting the government’s motion to dismiss the federal lawsuit challenging the government’s takeover of AIG?
So, what would happen if the law suit were to continue and not be dismissed? Oh my, what would happen if say, Murray were to win such a suit? Would it be wrong to assume that winning such a law suit would set a precedent against our government and possibly other companies from doing business with Shariah Complaint Financial organizations?
I almost forgot. Samar Ali used to clerk there, what a coincidence! Do you think maybe she knows her way around the Sixth Circuit? I mean, who’s who there and not that I am implying that the government would do such a thing with a pending law suit, but boy, what a coincidence.
What about her parents? Samar Ali’s father, Subhi D. Ali, M.D., is the Chairman of the Board of the Jerusalem Fund. What is the Jerusalem Fund? According to their website:
“The Jerusalem Fund is comprised of three programs: the Palestine Center, the Humanitarian Link and The Gallery.”
“The Palestine Center’s analysis emphasizes a Palestinian perspective on the peace process, the Right of Return and final status negotiations, elections, international law, media coverage of Israel and Palestine and U.S. foreign policy in the region.”
That’s right. Vanderbilt’s bio on Samar said “her father left the West Bank town of Ramallah at age 17.” Do you think it is a safe guess that maybe she is “Pro-Palestinian”? Wow, what another coincidence.
So Samar is an expert in Shariah Finance, has connections in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and her father happens to be the Chairman of the Jerusalem Fund which has the “Palestine Center”. The homepage of the Palestine Center has an article “Time to crack down on settlement funding”:
“To say that the proliferation of Israeli settlements in Occupied Palestinian Territory is an impediment to peace is an understatement. As Israel continues to gobble up Palestinian land, the individual rights of landowners and the Palestinian people are trampled upon, leaving no realistic peace process of which to speak.”
Wow,“Israel continues to gobble up Palestinian land, the individual rights of landowners and the Palestinian people are trampled upon”? Is that referring to the same area where we just sent $400 million of our tax dollars?
Are we starting to see any connections here? No one that is chosen to be a White House Fellow gets there easy. They are interviewed and re-interviewed, checked and re-checked. Their backgrounds are of extreme importance to say the least. These people are being groomed for higher and more prominent positions and you can bet your Sharia Compliant dollar that we will see much more of Samar Ali in the future.
On both of the radio shows ‘Radio Jihad’ and ‘America Akbar’ we constantly say “Follow the money” and “Connect the dots”.
Financing sharia inside the Obama administration
Inside the Administration’s Web of Deceit
This people is truly the tip of the proverbial iceberg, the connections mentioned here do not even scratch the surface. The connections of one group or individual to another go layers and layers deep like peeling an onion. When this was proposed to me as an article I received hundreds of pages of material connecting all of the above mentioned. It is like a spider’s web that appears never ending, but it all goes back to Shariah Compliant Finance.
I attempted to keep this simple and easy to understand, to put in all the information I have obtained would be more of a book than one or even a series of articles could begin to explain.
Our current administration, like all others, has an agenda and believe me it goes much deeper than just Democrat or Republican. Learn who your candidates are and what they stand for before you cast your vote or you will be so deep in the web you will never be able to get free.
Obama’s Supplemental Bill Passes, Gives Billions to Enemies?
Barack Obama’s 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and “passed by the full committee”. Not sure what the next step is, but based on the summary, it gives billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

• Israel:$555 million of the $2.8 billion 2010 request for security assistance,$555 million above the supplemental request.(Note: that means Obama’s original request did not include any money for Israel in 2009)
• Lebanon:$74 million
• International Food Assistance:$500 million,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis
• Refugee Assistance:$343 million,$50 million above the request,…including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)
• Disaster Assistance:$200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia
• Peacekeeping:$837 million for United Nations peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic
• HIV/AIDS:$100 million,$100 million above the request, for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to address a funding shortfall for grants in key countries such as Haiti, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Afghanistan.(Note: That means Obama’s original request didn’t include any money for AIDs)
• Africa:$151 million,$18 million above the request, for economic and security assistance for Kenya, Somalia, Southern Sudan, and Zimbabwe
• Mexico:$470 million,$404 million above the request, to address growing violence along the United States-Mexico border by supporting the Government of Mexico’s war against organized crime and drug-trafficking

Mass media remains silent on this but the International News has now picked up the story
Obama green lights Hamas-Fatah government
February 23, 2009
"We heard all along the campaign trail that neither Barack Hussein Obama nor his staffers were talking with Hamas, and that if elected President, Hussein O. would not negotiate with Hamas. Even the ever so reliable huffpo told us so. Meanwhile he was staffing and unstaffing (from under his bus) individuals who had either spoken positively of Hamas, had met with Hamas, or stated the U.S. needed to speak to Hamas.
Hamas even supported Obama’s run for president and stated they had indeed held meetings with Obama advisers.
Just days ago, some of Obama’s Democratic colleagues even made a trip to Hamas-controlled Gaza yet CNN stated they did not meet with Hamas. Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison met with the Palestinian Authorities chief negotiator. John Kerry brought home a letter for Obama from – guess who? Hamas. We asked in a previous post on this topic – how did all this come about without coordinating with Hamas?
Expect Obama to fully recognize Hamas in the near future, particularly if form a newly named authority with Fatah (of course that hasn’t worked in the past either). Just like the Maoist communist terrorists in Nepal that Hamas pal Jimmy Carter told the U.S. we must recognize, as they killed their way to power without relinquishing their violence, don’t expect Hamas to relinquish its objective to destroy Israel via jihad as they clearly indicate in the Hamas Covenant.
Excerpts below, read it all via PA: US okays Hamas-Fatah government hat tip Atlas Shrugs
The Obama administration has given the Palestinian Authority a “green light” to talk to Hamas about forming a Palestinian unity government, a PA official in Ramallah said over the weekend.
The official said that Washington had also given Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak the go-ahead to resume his efforts to achieve reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah.
“The new administration has a different policy than that of [former US president] George W. Bush,” the official told The Jerusalem Post.“The administration of President Barack Obama believes that a Hamas-Fatah government is good for stability.”
Cairo has issued invitations to representatives of Hamas, Fatah and several other Palestinian groups to attend reconciliation talks that are due to begin in Cairo on Wednesday.
Fatah and Hamas officials confirmed that the Egyptians had invited them to the talks.
Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri said that for the talks to succeed, the PA must first release all “political prisoners” from its West Bank jails.
Meanwhile, Hamas leaders said over the weekend that Democratic Sen. John Kerry’s visit to the Gaza Strip last Thursday signaled a change in US policy toward their movement.
“The visit is a move in the right direction,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said.“We consider the visit as an indirect step aimed at ending the boycott of Hamas by the Americans and the international community.”
Welcoming the apparent shift in US policy, the Hamas spokesman expressed hope that the Obama administration would “repair” the damage and injustice done to Hamas after it won the January 2006 election, when the Bush administration decided to boycott and impose sanctions on it.
However, he voiced disappointment over the fact that Kerry did not meet during his tour of the Gaza Strip with “representatives of the democratically elected government headed by Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.”"

.This is an article written by an ex IRS investigator....very interesting.
Trump is correct, Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama is hiding something in his past that is very bad... and it may not be his citizenship.(Trump would not say this if he did not know something and he has the money to get the dirt...)
As an IRS tax examiner,one of many former federal jobs, I have seen what it appears Barry Soetoro has done, mostly by illegal aliens attempting to acquire a new identity in the U.S and/or criminals looking to acquire a new ID.
Barry, AKA Obama, was lawfully adopted by a foreign national, Lolo Soetoro, and Barry's name was legally changed to "Barry Soetoro".(Barry’s own admission) Barry Soetoro was also made an official legal Indonesian citizen.(again Barry’s own admission) The adoption would be noted in Barry's vital statistics record in Hawaii on his original birth certificate...
OR Lolo Soetoro may have always been Barry's legal birth farther. The public does not know for sure at this point who Barry's father really was and Barry himself may not know.
Barry was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia and attended a Catholic funded school that permitted all faiths to attend.
Barry's mother dropped him as a dependent for some reason, maybe even when Barry was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. His mother's passport records dropped Barry as a dependent indicating Barry was no longer a legal dependent of his mothers.(The passport records of his mother have been produced showing Barry was no longer a dependent when Barry was permanently residing in Indonesia.) Barry went to Hawaii to live with his alleged grand parents after Lolo Soetoro and Barry's mother divorced.
A "certificate of live birth" can have names changed on it including a child's birth name, and birth parent’s names. Even a modified date of birth can be on a "certificate of live birth". This occurs frequently for adopted children where the birth parent does not want the child to know who they are. The public has no idea who Barry’s real birth father is or who Barry’s real birth mother is.(Barry could have been adopted by his mother) The original birth certificate is the only legal vital statistics record of a person’s birth parents, birth location, birth date, etc… I can get a “certificate of live birth” for a dead person; I cannot get a birth certificate of a dead person without “Deceased” on it.(I’ve tried)
There is no evidence Barry Soetoro ever lawfully changed his name to “Barrack Hussein Obama”. There is no proof Barry Soetoro was born with the name "Barrack Hussein Obama". I’m willing to bet the name “Barrack Hussein Obama” is not present on the real birth certificate as Barry’s birth name or as Barry’s birth father. I have pictures of me with my mother and Jimmy Buffet… that doesn’t make him my father even if I start using the name Jimmy Buffet.
Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama
The public knows Barry Soetoro finished high school in Hawaii as Barry Soetoro and attended Occidental as Barry Soetoro where he did drugs and flunked out of school.
After dropping out of Occidental, Barry showed up in New York, homeless and on drugs.(Barry’s own admission) Barry then hooked up with a Pakistani to live with and traveled back to Indonesia on his new boyfriend’s dime to renew his Indonesian passport and traveled to Pakistan with him.
Ask any law enforcement officer in a large city or detective and they will tell you homeless young men on drugs in large cities usually end up as male prostitutes. Barry ended up as a world traveler with a degree…(Not likely)
Barry Soetoro returned to New York from Pakistan and began using the fictitious name “Obama” for some reason.(again Barry Soetoro’s own admission) One could only suspect that a person addicted to drugs returning from Pakistan to New York, the main route for Afghan heroin into the U.S., maybe Barry had a reason to start using a new name. There are literally over 1 million open warrants on file in New York… maybe Barry is one of them?....
After spending some time in New York allegedly working under the name “Obama”, It appears Barry used the fictitious name "Barrack Hussein Obama" for the first time to file his federal taxes in Connecticut at a Post Office Box for the purpose of evading paying taxes in New York and /or to establish a new identity.(This is a felony with no statute of limitation.)
When the IRS received Barry Soetoro’s federal tax filing, the IRS could not attach the name Barrack Hussein Obama to the SSI number provided or the address provided. So the IRS assigned the fictitious name "Barrack Hussein Obama" a tax ID number for a person from Connecticut (Where Barry unlawfully filed a federal tax form using a false name). Barry Soetoro began using the tax ID number as his SSI number when using the fictitious name Barrack Obama. This is why Barry Soetoro has a Connecticut SSI number. When I worked for the IRS, I saw this occur more than once and yes, it is a felony to knowingly file a fraudulent federal tax forms. Most of the politicians that cheat on their taxes claim it was an accident. That is how they get away with their tax cheat crimes. Using a fake name is no accident.
It appears Barry fled New York to Chicago using his new identity to get a job . He likely ordered a fake diploma to bolster his new identity as "Obama". Fake Diploma's were very big in the 80's and diploma mills were even being used by federal workers to get promotions. There is evidence his alleged attendance at Columbia was faked (Barry never attended Columbia) and Barry lied his way into Harvard (he had no transcripts to get in)... Including telling the Saudi royal family he was fighting in Afghanistan with the Muslim Jihad against the Russians, so they would help him get into a law school.
Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama
The Saudi's apparently loved Barry's story of Jihad in Pakistan/Afghanistan and paid for Barry to attend Harvard under the name "Obama". The Saudi family has admitted to paying for Obama to attend Harvard and gave Harvard a gift of $20 million dollars. Harvard in turn made their special attendy President of the law review a person that never wrote a single law review.... I guess that is what $20 million buys at Harvard.
It is unlikely Barry was a Jihadist and was most likely a drug mule if anything, maybe even a CIA street hire to haul Afghan heroin back to New York, so the Afghans could buy U.S. made stinger missiles with U.S. dollars to shoot down Russian helicopters?... I hired people over seas to do work below my pay grade all the time, even foreign nationals... I think this is the story Barry told the Saudi's, but he was most likely really just a drug mule/dealer and probably still wanted on an outstanding warrant in New York.
Barry’s selective service registration is not normal either…http://www.debbieschlus sel.com/4428/exclusive-did-nex t-commander-in...
After I looked at Barry’s selective service filing I noticed it was most likely fraudulent too based on the name he used. Barry did not start using the name "Obama" until he returned from Pakistan (long after he flunked out of school in California) His selective service record (maintained in Chicago coincidentally) shows he registered at a Hawaiian post office as “Obama” in Sept 1980... Problem, Barry was getting high in California at Occidental in Sept 1980 (Barry's own admission) and was not using the fictitious name "Obama" at that time. Barry began using the fictitious name "Obama" only after he returned from Pakistan. The selective service filing is fraudulent.
Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama
NEW NOTE - On the the Selective Service Registration, Barry did not have the Connecticut Tax ID number he used on the Registration until after he began using the name "Obama" in New York. More evidence his Selective Service filing is fraudulent.
Barry returned to Chicago and attend a semi-christian radical black church with his first female love Michelle. Barry admits keeping in touch with Phil Boener, who traveled to New York from Occidental to be with Barry and was most likely Barry's first love.
Barry still could not get a real job, because he was still a fraud, even with his Harvard degree in hand he could lie and take the Bar exam, but he could not work as a lawyer for a major law firm without a back ground investigation and he would never pass one. So, Michelle got Barry a job at her law firm. Barry never filed a case alone and never filed a motion. He wrote lost of memos according to the law firm where Barry worked.(I think they know Barry is a fraud and don't want to be sued by previous clients) Barry rescinded his law licenses, so as not to be disbarred for fraud. The Bar knows Barry lied on his application. Michelle also had to turn over her law license for her involvement in corruption with the Chicago mayors office.
With time on his hands Barry, a well spoken black man, was able to get elected to a state office, oddly because he looked for fraud in his opponents voter registrations and got his opponent disqualified from running.
Barry a well versed liar was a natural in state politics. He used his political influence to get himself a position as a lecturer at Chicago's law school. Barry embellished this position as a "professor of law" which everyone knows is completely false. Barry was not a professor or even a specialist at anything but lying.
On a whim Barry ran for United States Senate for the State of Illinois. Politicians do this all the time to make a name for themselves even if they can't win. At the time the Republican Ryan was a shoe in for the Senate seat, so no real Democrat contenders entered the race, but Barry did. On a fluke after the primary Ryan's wife Jeri Ryan (Seven of nine from Star Trek) went public that her husband was making her have sex with other people while he watched. Ryan dropped out and Alan Keys moved from Maryland to run against Barry Soetoro.
The election got all kinds of press because there was no blacks in the U.S. Senate and one of these black men was going to be a Senator. Alan Keys did his best to warn everyone Barry was not who he claimed to be, but the public saw him as a carpet bagger. Barry kept the lie going and presented himself as a clean black man that talked like a white man... Illinois elected Barry to U.S. Senate. The Democrats had already began scrubbing Barry's back ground when Ryan dropped out.
Phil, Barry's boy friend from Occidental, was found working in California as a communications specialist (receptionist) for a dental hygienist school and given a diploma from Columbia and cover story. The rest of Barry's drug friends were all given jobs or money by the Democrat machine to keep quiet.
Because Barry was such a news maker as the only Black in the Senate, and he could speak like a white man he was made key speaker for the Democrat convention. Barry then decided to run for President to keep the lie going. No one thought to question Barry's back ground in the Democratic party... They helped cover up the ugly back ground. The only person jumping up and down warning Barry was not who he claimed to be was Alan Keys and he was discarded as just an angry loser.
Now we have a complete fraud sitting in the Office of the President. Clearly the most corrupt, inexperienced, and ignorant President in the history of the United States who's only quality is that he can lie with a straight face.
"Barack Obama’s response to the 9/11 tragedy in 2001: See below:
Thursday, September 10th at 8:58PM EDT
Tomorrow is the eight anniversary of the most heinous terrorist attack ever perpetrated on the United States. Thousands of our friends,
family and fellow Americans were murdered in cold blood by vicious terrorists who hated America and what we stand for.
On September 19, 2001, a story ran in the Hyde Park Herald containing then-State-Senator Barack Obama’s response to the 9/11 tragedy. In
this piece (quoted in this article from the New Yorker, under the heading “The Speech”), Obama expresses empathy for the murderers! Not
anger, not disdain, not a word of sympathy for the victims. His concern was for the murderers
From Obama’s article: OBAMA'S ARTICLE 2001
We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy,
such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular
culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.
So are we to feel sorry for these people, Mr. President? It’s not like it was a mystery that there were terrorists out there in the
world like this back in 2001. We knew they weren’t poor & uneducated, as Obama seems to believe here. Ponder the fact that it is just this
kind of leftist “thinking” that is driving the Marxist/fascist policies emanating from the White House today.
Tomorrow, please pray for the families and friends of the victims, and pray for our country, that it not adopt the kind of thinking that
Barack Obama expressed in 2001.
Oops! Obama mama passport 'destroyed'
State Dept. claims records gone for Stanley Ann Dunham prior to 1968
Responding to a Freedom of Inform. Act request, the State Dept. has released passport records of Stanley Ann Dunham, President Obama's mother – but records for the years surrounding Obama's 1961 birth are missing.
The State Department claims a 1980s General Services Admin. directive resulted in the destruction of many passport applications and other "nonvital" passport records, including Dunham's 1965 passport application and any other passports she may have applied for or held prior to 1965.
Destroyed, then, would also be any records shedding light on whether Dunham did or did not travel out of the country around the time of Barack Obama's birth.
The claim made in the Freedom of Information response letter that many passport records were destroyed during the 1980s comes despite a statement on the State Dept website that Passport Services maintains U.S. passport records for passports issued from 1925 to the present.
The records released, however, contain interesting tidbits of new information about Obama's mother, including the odd listing of two different dates and locations for her marriage to Obama's Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.
In the released documents Dunham listed both March 15, 1965, in Molokai, Hawaii, and March 5, 1964, in Maui, Hawaii, as the dates and places of her marriage.
Dunham later divorced Lolo Soetoro in Hawaii. The divorce decree took effect Nov. 5, 1980, but the divorce papers do not list the date of the marriage.
No marriage certificate between Dunham and Soetoro has yet publicly surfaced, but a released application to amend Dunham's 1965 passport to her married name Stanley Ann Soetoro includes a checked box indicating a passport officer had seen the marriage cert.
The released records also document that on 8-13-68
Dunham applied to have her 1965-issued passport renewed for two years, until July 18, 1970.
Under 22 USC Sec. 217a, from 1959 through 1968, passports were initially issued for three years, but they could be renewed for an additional two years.
Obama, by any other name
Also revealed by the released records is a heretofore unknown, alternative name for Barack Obama.
In the 1968 application to renew her 1965 passport, Dunham listed as her son Barack Hussein Obama, including in parenthesis below the name, "Soebarkah," in what appears to be a variation of an Indonesian surname not previously associated in the public record with the president.
For some unexplained reason, the designation of "Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah)" is crossed off the 1968 application by five handwritten, diagonal hash marks.
S. Ann Dunham in Indonesia
Dunham also appears to have used two different variations of her name in obtaining and amending passports while married to Lolo Soetoro: Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro and, without her maiden name, Stanley Ann Soetoro.
On April 27, 1981, Dunham applied from Jakarta, Indonesia, for a U.S. passport, indicating that she was in Indonesia working on a two-year contract from the Ford Foundation, from January 1981 through December 1982.
At that time, Dunham was working on a microfinance program for the Ford Foundation, which was overseen by Peter Geithner, the father of Timothy Geithner, the current U.S. secretary of the treasury.
Ann Dunham's occupation in the 1981 passport application was listed as "Program Officer, Ford Foundation."
No passport records subsequent to 1986 for Ann Dunham were released, though presumably a passport was issued following her 1986 application, such that the 10-year period prior to expiration would have extended one year past her death.
Dunham died 11-7-95, and was known to have been in Indonesia in 1994 when an Indonesian Dr. first misdiagnosed as indigestion the first signs of the ovarian cancer that was the cause of her death the following year.
LONDON DAILY TELEGRAPH - very embarrassing!
The American people can now more readily "understand" why the Obama's were omitted from the guest list to the Royal wedding in April! This is a very sobering article. Our handling of relationships with the Britons over the oil spill didn't help either.
From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations Quote:
"Let me be clear: I'm not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States. But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama's reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue."
One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama's animosity toward Great Britain, presumably because of what he regards as its sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).
One of Barack Hussein Obama's first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11.
He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags.
The president was "too tired" to grant the leader of America's closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.
Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen.
Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as "rudeness personified."
There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations in September. "The prime minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were rejected by the White House", said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr. Obama's "churlishness is unforgivable", Mr. Hughes said.
The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina's specious claim to the Falkland Islands, a British dependency since 1833. The people who live in the Falklands, who speak English, want nothing to do with Argentina. When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by force, the British -- with strong support from President Ronald Reagan --expelled them.
"It is truly shocking that Barack Obama has decided to disregard our shared history," wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. "Does Britain's friendship really mean so little to him?" One could ask, does the friendship of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?
"I recently asked several senior administration officials, separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in office," wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, on Monday. "A lot of hemming and hawing ensued." One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret. Another named German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, "Merkel too has been conspicuously cool toward Obama."
Mr. Obama certainly doesn't care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has betrayed on missile defense.
Honduras and Israel also can attest that he's been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful friend. Ironically, our relations with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have never been worse. Russia has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama's abandonment of missile defense. Russia and China won't support serious sanctions on Iran. Syria's support for terrorism has not diminished despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has responded to our efforts at "engagement" by deepening its ties to North Korea.
And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their contempt for him.
For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is actually distrusted by its allies and not in the least feared by its adversaries.
Nor is Mr. Obama now respected by the majority of Americans. Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama's relentless efforts to nationalize and socialize health care, Americans apparently have yet to notice his dismal performance and lack of respect in the world community.
They soon will.
