Looking Back Upon Obama’s History!
In an interview, Barack Obama referred to his mother as "the dominant figure in my formative years... The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics."
Since this man wants to lead the greatest nation on earth, it only makes sense to learn something more about his mother and the values that are so important to him.
Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro
November 29, 1942 - November 7, 1995
The mother of Senator Barack Obama, Stanley Ann Dunham, also known as Ann Dunham, was an American anthropologist and LEFT-WING social activist - as in Socialist!!!
She was born in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to Stanley and Madelyn Dunham.
Her father was a furniture salesman in downtown Seattle, Washington and her mother worked for a bank.
In 1956, after living in Seattle for a year, her family moved to Mercer Island, Washington, so 13-year-old Ann could attend the Mercer Island High School which had just opened.
At the school, she was on the debate team and graduated in 1960.
Her family moved to Hawaii and Ann attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where she studied anthroplogy.
When Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii, she was a full fledged radical leftist and practitioner of critical theory.
She began to engage in miscegenation (inter-racial relationships) as part of her attack on society.
Susan Blake, one of her friends, has stated that she never dated "the crew-cut white boys."
She had a world view, even as a young girl.
She embraced that which was different.
In Hawaii she met Barack Obama, Sr. from Kenya in her Russian language class.
Barack Obama, Jr. was born Aug. 4, 1961.
Barack Obama, Sr. left Ann and their son in 1963 to attend Harvard University in Boston.
Press reports claim Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. were divorced around this time; however, no evidence has yet been presented to show they were ever married.
The senior Obama obtained a masters degree in economics at Harvard and returned to Kenya in 1965.
There he obtained a position in the Kenyan government.
He was killed in an automobile accident in 1982.
Two years later, when her son was five, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian oil manager and practicing Muslim whom she met at the university.
In 1967, they moved to Jakarta, Indonesia.
While in Indonesia, Ann got a job at the American embassy teaching English.
Barack’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro was born in Indonesia.
Ann, Barack and his half-sister Maya moved back to Hawaii.
Ann Dunham soon returned to Indonesia with Maya, but she divorced Soetoro in the late 1970s.
Dunham traveled around the world, pursuing a career in rural development that took her to Ghana, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal and Bangladesh.
In 1986, Ann Dunham worked on a developmental project in Pakistan.
Later that year, Ann and her daughter traveled the Silk Road in China.
In 1992, she earned a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Hawaii.
Her dissertation, ‘Peasant Blacksmithing in Indonesia: Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds,’ was 1,067 pages long.
She worked for the Ford Foundation and promoted Microlending.
The Ford Foundation, along with many others were cited by the House Committee on Un-American Activities as being subversive to our Republican form of government.
During Obama’s campaign for the 2008 presidential election, he portrayed his mother as a conservative girl from Kansas; however in reality, she was a radical LEFTIST and cultural Marxist.
She lived in the Seattle area, spending her teenage years in Seattle coffee shops with other young radical leftists.
Obama claims his mother’s family were conservative Methodists or Baptists from Kansas.
His mother’s parents were members of a left-wing Unitarian church near Seattle.
The church located in Bellevue, Washington was nicknamed ‘the little RED church,’ because of its COMMUNIIST LEANINGS.
The school Ann attended, Mercer Island High School, was a hotbed of pro-Marxist radical teachers.
John Stenhouse, board member, told the House on Un-American Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of the Communist Party USA and this school had a number of Marxists on its staff.
Two teachers at this school, Val Foubert and Jim Wichterman, BOTH Frankfurt School style Marxists, taught a critical theory curriculum to students which included: rejection of societal norms, attacks on Christianity and the traditional family, and assigned readings by Karl Marx.
The hallway between Foubert’s and Wichterman’s classrooms was sometimes called ‘anarchy alley.’
Dunham has been described by her friends as "a fellow traveler," meaning "a communist sympathizer." Stanley Ann Dunham died in Hawaii Nov. 7, 1995 of ovarian and uterine cancer.
