Obama’s Real Identity and Legacy

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

Cliff Kincaid and Joel Gilbert discuss Barack Obama’s “real father,” communist Frank Marshall Davis, and the role played by his grandfather, Stanley Dunham, a reputed CIA operative, in selecting Davis as Obama’s mentor. They also address Obama’s cover-up of his links to Davis and why the CIA did not alert the American people to Obama’s revolutionary agenda for the nation.

Media Bias Produces Mental Illness “Ameriphobia”

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

For Donald J. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, the latest scandal is that employees of his California golf course say he wanted to fire women who weren’t pretty enough. That’s the big scoop from the Los Angeles Times. Trump is supposed to be on the defensive compared to a female candidate who helped orchestrate cover-ups of “bimbo eruptions” from her husband’s mistresses?

That such a story about Trump can be floated with such seriousness in the press is just more evidence of the double-standard that pervades the media. This corruption is also known as political correctness, a phenomenon driving more and more people to Trump.

Another scandal, courtesy of The Washington Post, is the story headlined, “Trump Foundation lacks the certification required for charities that solicit money.” Is this all they’ve got?

Fortunately, there are two papers in the nation’s capital. Washington Times columnist Kelly Riddell noted, “If Donald Trump becomes the next president of the United States he’ll be more thoroughly vetted by the media than Barack Obama.”

While Post reporter David A. Fahrenthold has spent months looking into the esoteric financial workings of the Trump Foundation, the same paper was unwilling to write a single article on Obama’s relationship with suspected Soviet agent and black Communist Frank Marshall Davis back in 2008, during Obama’s first run for the White House.

This curious fact was mentioned by Riddell in her column, “A biased media in action,” as another indication of the growing recognition of the media double-standard.

By contrast, “with Donald Trump nothing remains too salacious, conspiratorial, or out-of-bounds for the press,” notes Riddell. Hence, hiring pretty women becomes a major scandal. It’s laughable.

The good news is that more and more people are laughing at the media. The liberal media monopoly has been systematically broken over the last several decades, since Reed Irvine’s Accuracy in Media was formed in 1969 and started questioning what the liberal media were feeding the news consumer. Conservative and Christian talk radio, papers like The Washington Times, plus alternative media and the Internet, have given the news consumers a choice.

As a result, Gallup finds that trust in the mass media, otherwise known as the “mainstream media,” has sunk to a new low. Meanwhile a new Rasmussen Reports survey finds that just 29 percent of all likely U.S. voters trust media fact-checking of the candidates’ comments.

People are very sophisticated these days, aware of media bias because they see it for themselves. They see the “Crooked Media” protecting “Crooked Hillary.”

For example, despite her own health problems, obvious to anyone who takes the time and trouble to search the Internet, Mrs. Clinton sees half of Trump’s “deplorable” supporters as having a mental illness. She says they are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic.

The name-calling won’t stop the Trump movement, which demonstrated its enthusiasm for the nominee with the Trump victories even in the mainstream media’s snap polls after the first presidential debate. Of course, the media were not happy with these results and immediately tried to discount them.

Whether the snap polls were scientifically valid or not, the Trump movement is a real one and it’s not going away. In fact as people see media bias becoming more and more blatant, they redouble their support for Trump in response.

In an article titled, “The Trump movement is the backlash to the left’s success,” an honest liberal journalist, Martin Longman of the Washington Monthly, writes about how the media are moving even further to the left. He says, “During the Obama presidency, there has been a steady growth of black, brown, gay and feminist voices who have moved from the media fringe or underground into the mainstream, as syndicated columnists, cable news anchors and regular guests, and (as it has aged) even as veterans of the administration. The growth of social media, especially Twitter, has also amplified voices of the cultural and ethnic left, pushing them into the conversation on every major news story.”

Longman signals his agreement with part of a column by Ross Douthat of The New York Times, who says that the Trump movement is a cultural shift to the right that “remains an advantage” for the Republican Party “and a liability for the Democratic Party” going forward. He writes that “the new cultural orthodoxy is sufficiently stifling to leave many Americans looking to the voting booth as a way to register dissent.”

Whether Trump can faithfully represent that shift is a matter still to be determined.

Then there’s political correctness in sports. Douthat notes that “…institutions that were seen as outside or sideways to political debate have been enlisted in the culture war. The tabloid industry gave us the apotheosis of Caitlyn Jenner, and ESPN gave her its Arthur Ashe Award. The N.B.A., N.C.A.A. and the A.C.C.—nobody’s idea of progressive forces, usually—are acting as enforcers on behalf of gay and transgender rights. Jock culture remains relatively reactionary, but even the N.F.L. is having its Black Lives Matters moment, thanks to Colin Kaepernick.”

That all of this politically correct, unpatriotic, and divisive nonsense is forced down our throats even on weekends, when people want to relax and watch football games, is another factor driving voters to Trump. It’s why media bias and phony fact-checking are having less and less effect. The American people don’t like what the liberals have done to their nation and they see Trump as a way out of the madness.

The real illness, notes filmmaker Joel Gilbert, is Ameriphobia, described and illustrated in a new video showing Hillary Clinton being treated at the Donald Trump medical clinic. One cause of this terrible mental condition is prolonged exposure to liberal media bias.

The video asks, “Do you know someone Ameriphobic?” The Donald Trump Clinic for Ameriphobia is ready for them.

Obama’s Red/Green Cover-up Begins to Unravel

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

ObamaRedGreen

Seven years into Barack Obama’s presidency, the scales may slowly be falling from the eyes of The New York Times. Could the truth about America’s red diaper baby President be starting to emerge?

In a story about papers of his reported father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., the Times said that President Obama has shown no interest in “the newly discovered documents, which included nearly two dozen of his father’s letters, his transcripts from the University of Hawaii and Harvard University, and references from professors, advisers and supporters.” The paper added, “Nearly three years later, as Mr. Obama celebrates his last Father’s Day in the White House, the center [the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem] is still waiting” for a response from the President as to whether he is interested in seeing the documents.

What accounts for this strange behavior from Obama? Could the lack of interest have something to do with the fact that the Kenyan is not Obama’s real father?

Based on the documents in the possession of the Schomburg Center, it appears that the Kenyan Obama didn’t even claim the future President as his son.

“It was while pursuing his undergraduate degree at the University of Hawaii in 1960 that Barack Obama Sr. met Ann Dunham, a classmate,” the Times said. “Although he already had a wife and two children in Kenya, he married her the following year, after she became pregnant. Their son was born on Aug. 4, 1961. But Barack Obama Sr. never mentioned his new wife and son, not even in his scholarship applications” (emphasis added).

There’s more: “In 1963, as he applied for a grant to help cover his graduate studies at Harvard, Barack Obama Sr. was asked on a financial aid form about his marital status and number of dependents. He left the section blank” (emphasis added).

President Barack Obama listens to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood speak during a briefing on the response to Hurricane Sandy at FEMA headquarters in Washington, D.C., Oct. 31, 2012. Pictured, from left, are Secretary LaHood; Energy Secretary Steven Chu; John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism; FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate; Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano; and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.

Joel Gilbert, a filmmaker with a keen interest in the case, is not surprised. “The Kenyan Obama never mentions Barry or Ann in correspondence or applications after Barry [Barry Soetoro was Obama’s name when it reflected his step-father’s surname] was born,” Gilbert tells Accuracy in Media. “Nor did any of the Kenyan Obama’s classmates know about a child or a marriage. This is just part of the mountain of evidence I cite in my film, ‘Dreams from My Real Father,’ that demonstrates the Kenyan Obama participated in a sham marriage to help cover up an affair between Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, and Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s communist mentor.”

Davis was exposed as Obama’s communist mentor by Accuracy in Media in 2008, with the assistance of blogger Trevor Loudon, before Obama’s election to the presidency. The liberal media showed little interest. And when they did, they downplayed Davis’s Marxism, suggesting he was just a civil rights activist. That was the official Obama campaign line.

Later that same year, the 600-page FBI file on Davis was released, demonstrating Davis’s involvement in alleged Soviet espionage. Davis was even on the FBI’s internal security index, which was reserved for individuals who were considered wartime threats to the United States. Again, the media showed no interest, apparently realizing that the Davis connection would derail Obama’s campaign for the White House.

In 2012, Gilbert’s film was released, asserting that Davis was Obama’s real father.

But regardless of whether Davis was the real father or not, Obama was partially raised, by his own account, by Frank Marshall Davis from ages 9 to 18.

While the Times seemed perplexed by Obama’s lack of interest in the newly discovered documents, the paper “continues to celebrate the false background story of President Obama,” and perpetuates the notion that the Kenyan is the real father, Gilbert notes. To do otherwise would invite scrutiny of the Times and other news organizations for having failed to adequately probe Obama’s controversial background before he assumed the presidency.

Gilbert commented, “The New York Times article mentioned that President Obama did not respond to the Schomburg Center’s offer to share the documents. In fact, President Obama has expressed zero interest in the Kenyan Obama since he took office. The Kenyan Obama served as the diversion in Obama’s run for the presidency, to sell himself as the multi-cultural ideal who would be a post-racial president. This was necessary to hide the fact that Barack Obama’s real biological father and ideological mentor was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party propagandist and one of the original ‘Black Bolsheviks’ in Chicago who was recruited by white communists to in turn recruit blacks into the Communist Party.”

He added, “The fact that the Kenyan Barack Obama never mentions Barry or Ann Dunham [in the Schomberg documents] is more indication that he took part in a sham marriage to cover up the affair between Ann Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis. Every time more information and letters come out, they reiterate there was no connection between the Kenyan Obama and the President.”

Gilbert’s interest in the topic has now extended to members of Barack Obama’s own alleged family. He interviewed Malik Obama, Barack’s alleged half-brother, about the subject of Barack Obama’s father. Malik Obama told Gilbert that he wants a DNA test and believes Frank Marshall Davis is the real father.

Based on all the available evidence, including the newly discovered documents, it would appear that the Kenyan Obama had been used not only for the purpose of concealing an illicit relationship between Obama’s mother and Davis, but also for hiding a Marxist agenda for America and the world.

But Obama’s cover-up goes much deeper than this.

As we have noted in the past, the same Obama campaign apparatus which asserted that Davis was just a black civil rights activist also claimed that Obama was a baptized Christian. However, Obama acknowledged in his book Dreams from My Father that his grandfather was a Muslim (page 104) and that he spent two years in a Muslim school in Indonesia studying the Koran (page 154). There is no evidence Obama was baptized as a Christian, in any formal sense, in Jeremiah Wright’s church, and no evidence that Obama ever specifically rejected Islam.

The truth may be somewhere in the middle. Edward Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in The White House, notes that Wright told him that he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity “without having to renounce his Islamic background.”

All of this may help explain why Obama’s policies seem designed to benefit America’s enemies at home and abroad, including what Frank Marshall Davis called “Red Russia,” as well as the Muslim Brotherhood and its various fronts.

Obama’s Horrendous Father’s Day Example

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

When Barack Obama campaigned for president in 2008, few Americans would have guessed that his administration would become the most anti-family force in U.S. history by celebrating gay marriage and the spectacle of men becoming women through the phenomenon of “transgenderism.” Obama had portrayed himself as a committed pro-family Christian who recognized the importance of male role models and fathers in the family structure. “Of all the rocks upon which we build our lives, we are reminded today that family is the most important. And we are called to recognize and honor how critical every father is to that foundation,” Obama said in a “Fatherhood speech” in June of that year.

But in response to Bruce Jenner, a biological father of six, declaring he was actually female, Obama said, “It takes courage to share your story.” Nothing was said about the impact such a bizarre declaration would have on one’s children, or the condition of one’s mental state to bring that about. Obama seemed to be endorsing genital mutilation as a way out of mental confusion or mental illness.

Obama’s definition of family has certainly changed. Indeed, he was once in favor of marriage being between one man and one woman, and today he celebrates fatherless and motherless families. He lied about his commitment to traditional marriage in order to get elected. It was a big con, but only one of many deceptions from the candidate of “hope and change” whose lasting legacy, as noted in Professor Paul Kengor’s new book Takedown, could very well be cultural and not economic transformation. After all, parts of Obamacare could be repealed over time, and economic reforms could arrest our debt problem, which has accelerated under Obama. But restoring the traditional family is a mammoth undertaking that even Republican presidential candidates are generally afraid to talk about.

Speaking to the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago in that 2008 speech, Obama had quoted from the Bible and said to the congregation, “if we are honest with ourselves” they would have to admit that “too many fathers…[are] missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.”

But the fact that “Bruce” Jenner will go missing from that family is something that is now celebrated by Obama.

If Obama had told that black congregation that he would be a president who would go down in history as praising a man for dressing up like a woman, the audience would have probably laughed out loud, thinking it was a joke. Who could have anticipated that a man who once lectured the nation on the need for a strong father would later defend a father’s decision to quit being one.

Another major deception from Obama was his claim that he never really had a father who was part of his life. In a 2013 Morehouse College address, he said, “I was raised by a heroic single mom, wonderful grandparents—made incredible sacrifices for me. And I know there are moms and grandparents here today who did the same thing for all of you. But I sure wish I had had a father who was not only present, but involved. Didn’t know my dad. And so my whole life, I’ve tried to be for Michelle and my girls what my father was not for my mother and me. I want to break that cycle where a father is not at home—(applause)—where a father is not helping to raise that son or daughter. I want to be a better father, a better husband, a better man.”

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert says that Obama’s comments about not having a father present in his childhood are 100 percent bogus, and that he had several fathers or father-figures.

Gilbert, director of the film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” examines Obama’s formative years and comes to the determination that the Communist Party member and suspected Soviet espionage agent, Frank Marshall Davis, was Obama’s real biological father. He believes the Kenyan Obama was a “father in name only” who was used to cover up an affair between Davis and Obama’s mother. Gilbert added, “Obama’s problem was not a lack of fathers, rather it was that his biological father became his ideological mentor and radicalized him into an anti-American ideology.”

We broke the story in the U.S. that Davis was Obama’s childhood mentor, a fact that The Washington Post still will not admit. Obama himself admits Davis “schooled” him on white racism. “All my research has indicated that Obama visited with Davis about three times per week during his entire youth from age 10 to 18,” Gilbert says. “Davis gave him money, taught him to drink whiskey, took him to strip clubs, and indoctrinated Obama during those formative years with his Communist view of the world.”

In addition to Davis, however, Gilbert says Obama had other “fathers” or father figures. These included his grandfather, “gramps,” a constant father figure presence, and his adopted father, Lolo Soetoro, whom he stayed in touch with even after his mother divorced him. He adds, “Never one to be without a father figure, Obama enlisted a [Frank Marshall Davis] carbon copy ideologue, whom he said ‘was like an uncle.’” That was the notorious Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who functioned like a father to Obama after Frank Marshall Davis died. Like Davis, Wright was a vicious anti-American.

The idea that Davis is truly Obama’s “real father” is certainly controversial and could only be solved definitively by DNA analysis. However, Gilbert recently interviewed Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, who says that “Frank Marshall Davis and Barack look alike,” and that Barack does not look like his father, the Kenyan Obama. Comparison photos between Frank Marshall Davis and President Obama are indeed striking. Malik Obama says he would welcome a DNA test, and that this might explain why Barack dumped the Kenyan Obamas after he was elected President.

Once a strong proponent of the traditional meaning of Father’s Day, in order to get elected to the presidency, Obama will now go down in history for demeaning this national celebration honoring fathers and fatherhood.

Consider Barack Obama as the President who celebrated a man for acting and trying to look like a woman. At this rate, Father’s Day cards will one day be sold in the “he” and “she” categories.

The impact on our young people from this presidential “example” will be seen and felt in the years ahead: more sexual confusion, alienation from family, mental illness and suicides.

This is what progressive “change” looks like.

Dreams from Obama’s Different Fathers

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

President Obama on Monday is celebrating his “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, designed to create and expand “ladders of opportunity” for young blacks, many of whom have no fathers to guide them. But does President Obama have the credibility to deal with this crisis when he has failed to acknowledge as President the debt that he owes to his mentor and father figure, Communist Frank Marshall Davis?

What’s worse, Obama’s own half-brother, Malik Obama, is calling the President a con man who has failed to help members of his own poverty-stricken Kenyan family. Asked if President Obama has contributed to the foundation for his father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., Malik told filmmaker Joel Gilbert, “No. No. Nothing.”

Perhaps the senior Obama isn’t Obama’s real father, after all.

The fatherhood crisis in black America was illustrated by the controversy over a black mother in Baltimore pulling her son off the streets when she caught him throwing rocks at the police during the riots. The mother, Toya Graham, has six children but no husband.

In addition to his initiatives on behalf of black fathers and their sons, Obama has unveiled a “fatherhood pledge,” which goes as follows:

“In response to President Obama’s call for a national conversation on responsible fatherhood and healthy families:

  • I pledge to renew my commitment to family and community.
  • I recognize the positive impact that fathers, mothers, mentors, and other responsible adults can have on our children and youth, and pledge to do all I can to provide children in my home and throughout my community the encouragement and support they need to fulfill their potential.”

Signers are told that “President Obama grew up without his dad, and has said that being a father is the most important job he has. That’s why the President is joining dads from across the nation in a fatherhood pledge—a pledge that we’ll do everything we can to be there for our children and for young people whose fathers are not around.”

In one of several stories expected to highlight Obama’s alleged commitment to the progress of black people, Yahoo! News describes Obama’s Monday launch of a new foundation to help black youth as part of his presidential legacy.

But in the blockbuster revelations that have been ignored by the pro-Obama “mainstream media,” Malik Obama, son of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., told Joel Gilbert in an interview from Kenya that he feels disappointed in, used and betrayed by President Obama. “In the beginning, I didn’t think that he was a schemer,” Malik Obama said. “His real character, his real personality, the real him, is coming out now.” Malik says that after using his Kenyan family for political purposes to get elected, Obama has largely abandoned them.

Malik is so disillusioned that he wants his half-brother to take a DNA test to see if he is really related to him.

The version of Barack Obama’s family history that continues to be disseminated nationally is that he grew up without a dad after his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., abandoned the family. The experience of not having a dad is said to have sparked Obama’s commitment to strengthen the black family through the “responsible fatherhood” initiative and the “My Brother’s Keeper” program. The foundation launched on Monday is an extension of the latter.

Gilbert asked Malik if he had approached Barack Obama about getting some funds to help bury their aunt, Zeituni Onyango, in Kenya after she died in Boston.  Malik responded, “Yes I did. I told him that she’s our aunt, she’s your father’s sister, she loved you very much and we need to do something for her. We need around $20,000 and he said that was too much and that it seemed like she deserved what she got. And I was saying in my mind, ‘what kind of person is this?’ And I told him, ‘you say you’re your brother’s keeper, I don’t feel it, and I don’t see you living up to what you say.’ She had really been good to him when he came. I felt really sad that he would just abandon her like that. I just left. She was stuck there for a month. People were trying to raise money and we finally got her back.”

“The White House had no comment on Onyango’s passing,” the Boston Globe reported at the time.

Malik’s statement to Obama, “you say you’re your brother’s keeper, I don’t feel it, and I don’t see you living up to what you say,” is just another indication that Barack Obama’s family history is questionable.

Obama’s claim to have been abandoned by his Kenyan father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., is usually combined with the story that he was raised by his white grandparents in Hawaii. However, this has been demonstrated to be a carefully concocted lie designed to hide the fact that his grandfather picked black Communist Frank Marshall Davis to be Obama’s childhood mentor in Hawaii.

According to Barack Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, Davis, referred to as “Frank,” gave him advice on such topics as going to college and race relations, telling him that blacks “have reason to hate.” Davis’s true identity in the Obama book Dreams from My Father was obviously concealed because of his controversial background—which has been extensively documented by Accuracy in Media—as a suspected Soviet espionage agent, pornographer and pedophile.

It was communist historian Gerald Horne who initially disclosed “Frank” to be Davis at a 2007 event announcing that the archives of the Communist Party USA were being stored at New York University’s Tamiment Library. He had noted Davis’s influence over Obama and predicted in his remarks, “Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party,” that Obama would go down in history as a major and influential figure.

Despite Obama’s professed concern for the future of the dysfunctional black family, he has never been asked publicly by the media to explain his relationship with Davis, and he has avoided even mentioning the subject in public, except for one 1995 appearance that just recently surfaced on the Internet in a video. Obama said in that appearance that Davis had schooled him on the subject of white racism before he went off to college.

At one time, Malik Obama said, they were very close. Yet, Barack Obama has largely abandoned his family in Kenya. “He doesn’t want anything to do with me anymore,” Malik said. “I don’t understand how somebody who claims to be a relative or a brother can behave the way that he’s behaving, be so cold and ruthless, and just turn his back on the people he said were his family.”

Gilbert, the director of a film claiming Obama’s real father is Davis and not the Kenyan Obama, asked Malik if he thinks Barack Obama may be the child of Frank Marshall Davis rather than Barack Hussein Obama Sr. “There’s a great resemblance,” Malik replied. “I think Frank Marshall Davis and Barack, they look alike. Some kind of moles I see on his face and Frank, he has those too. There’s a resemblance.”

President Obama has promised to visit Kenya in July. White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said, “he did not yet know whether the President would visit with members of his extended family,” CNN reported.

Gilbert asked Malik, “Do you expect when he comes to Kenya that he will come to see you?” He replied, “No, I don’t expect that. I don’t. He’s coming to Kenya right now. I’ve not been informed…An embarrassment and demeaning.”

We are two years into the second term of the presidency of Barack Obama and still serious questions are raised about the history and background of the President of the United States.

However, Gerald Horne and others on the left always have seemed secure in their knowledge of what this presidency represents.  “At some point in the future,” Horne had said, “a teacher will add to her syllabus Barack’s memoir and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank Marshall Davis’ equally affecting memoir, ‘Living the Blues’…”

At that point, perhaps, we will learn the complete truth about Barack Obama and Frank Marshall Davis.
