Who is Barak Obama (Timeline info)
« on: December 23, 2008, 12:32:57 am »
Just that now there is the connection to Tavistock and early programming of a disturbed young man is very significant. There has been alot written about after WWI and the Thule society and the industrial funding, but not this connection to his time in Britain.

To me the Rothschild "bastard" thing has only been a reason as to why they might watch him and try to use and include him in future plans as he grew up.

At this point, I am beginning to see similarities with Obama. Has Obama been "programmed"? A very smart boy without a "standard" family environment, questions as to to who his father is.  His early environment with Frank Marshall Davis as a "programmer" seems ideal for this.
Then there is his time in L.A. , Chicago and the Sinclair/Church thing. If so they were willing to spend time on him and watch how he progressed and "help him along" with further programming and NLP training.

From the Obama timeline:
(This site make's a big deal that Obama WAS born in Hawaii (who reallly knows?) otherwise it seems good.

(Mother) Dunham is an atheist, an “Adlai Stevenson liberal,” a secular humanist, leftist social-activist, and a student of cultural anthropology. Ann Dunham meets Barack Obama Sr. while both are studying Russian at the University of Hawaii. Dunham is an excellent debater at school, and excels at defending the concepts of Karl Marx’ “The Communist Manifesto.” [2,4,5,9,10,324,612]

In 1971 or 1972, Obama is sent back to Hawaii to live with his mother’s parents;

Obama attends the elite, expensive, private Punahou High School (1971-1979).

Because of his drug abuse, Obama’s grades are poor in his final two years of high school. Obama later writes that “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though.”

While a teenager in Hawaii, Obama spends considerable time with Frank Marshall Davis (whose identity Obama hides by describing him only as “Frank” in his book, “Dreams From My Father”). Davis is a dope-smoking drinking buddy of Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham; Dunham and Davis had known each other in Kansas. Obama had met Davis shortly after arriving in Hawaii, at age 10, but was most influenced by him during his high school years. In place of his absent father and stepfather, Davis becomes Obama’s mentor. [19,21,389]

While at Occidental, Obama is mentored by an openly gay professor, Lawrence Goldyn, who has a strong influence on Obama’s acceptance of gays.

At Occidental, Obama allegedly meets a professor of politics who happens to be a CIA expert on the Soviet Union and an associate of Zbigniew Brzezinski (who would later be the National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter). Without the release of his school records, it is impossible to determine whether Obama was a student of Brzezinski. [615,616,618]

Probably in late 1980, Obama decides to stop using the name Barry Soetoro and returns to the name Barack Obama, Jr. [194]

Obama moves to New York City and enrolls at Columbia University. He attends socialist conferences “for inspiration.” His roommate is Pakistani Muslim Sohale Siddiqi. Siddiqi is a drug user; Obama allegedly stops using drugs while at Columbia. Living a few blocks away from Obama and Columbia is William Ayers (at 520 West 123rd Street). [26,27,206,297]

Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia students from that time period; none remembered Obama. Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008 Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knows him, and they all know me.  I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. Ever! ... Nobody recalls him. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not kidding.” Root adds that he also was “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” and “You don't get more exact than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him.

Aside from a few visits to Hawaii, Ann Dunham spends most of the rest of her life based in Indonesia, but she travels extensively, to Ghana, Thailand, Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and China. Dunham took her daughter Maya with her on a 1986 trip along China’s “silk road.” Dunham returns to Hawaii before her death in 1995.

Well I hope you get where I'm coming from with this...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Re: Who is Barak Obama (Timeline info)
« Reply #1 on: January 03, 2009, 08:33:04 pm »
Here is a posting of the whole timeline (part I)
The Obama Timeline: 1961-2009
The following timeline presents the important aspects of Barack Obama’s life, from birth to the present. Every attempt has been made to present accurate information, names, and dates. If errors or significant omissions are noted, please free to contact the author at [email protected]. Although the timeline’s content will frequently change as events occur, the author will gladly send you a .pdf version if you would find that useful.
NOTE: The work is the intellectual property of the author and is fully protected by copyright law. Any re-posting or re-printing of this timeline without crediting the author ( or without the consent of the author is prohibited.
Note also the following web sites, with up to date information on Obama’s birth certificate, citizenship, and other issues relating to Obama’s past:
Barack Obama Jr. is born on August 4, 1961, allegedly in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Stanley Ann Dunham (1942-1995). Ann Dunham (who understandably dropped the “Stanley”) purportedly married Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr. (1936-1982), on February 2, 1961. Obama, Sr., an Arab-African Muslim by birth, but an atheist by admission, already had two children with a woman in Kenya named Kezia (b. 1938). It is possible, however, that Obama, Sr. was not legally married to Kezia (their marriage was perhaps only a tribal marriage), making his marriage to Dunham (if there was a marriage) legal. (Obama and Kezia eventually re-unite after he separates from Ann Dunham, and Kezia bears two more of his children.) [1,3,7,289,299,324]
Note that Barack Obama, Sr.’s Hawaiian education was being sponsored partly by the Laubach Literacy Institute (LLI), which has links to the Nation of Islam, and which considers a socialist world without national borders one of its goals. A financial supporter of the LLI was Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who co-authored books with its founder, Charles Laubach; Kirk was also a friend of civil rights activist Malcolm X. It is likely that Malcolm X met Obama, Sr. while visiting the Secretary general of the Kenya Federation of Labour, prominent Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, in 1959, because Mboya and Obama were close friends. [527]
Obama Sr. was able to attend the University of Hawaii also through the efforts of Mboya, who visited the United States in 1959 and 1960 to obtain financial support for the American education of 81 Kenyan students. Candidate Obama is incorrect in relating that Obama Sr. was part of a “Kennedy airlift” of Kenyan students; that did not occur until after Obama was already in Hawaii. (Further, of course, Kennedy was not sworn in as President until January of 1961.) The “JFK helped my father” lie was intended to further attach some of the Kennedy “mystique” to the Obama candidacy. [561]
If Obama was born in Hawaii, he was then both an American citizen and a British citizen because his father was a citizen of the British East African Protectorate of Zanzibar (which became the independent nation of Kenya in 1963). If Obama was born in Hawaii, Obama’s British/Kenyan citizenship automatically expired when he turned age 21. If Obama later became a citizen of Indonesia by virtue of being adopted by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, Obama lost his Kenyan and American citizenship at the point of adoption, because Indonesia has not allowed dual citizenship since 1945. (Note that because Kenya had, in 1961, not yet declared its independence from Great Britain, Obama was, like his father, a British citizen under Section 32(1) of the British Nationality Act of 1948. Both Obama, Sr. and Obama, Jr. then automatically became Kenyan citizens when the independent nation was formed in 1963.) [219,258,492,549]
Only one of Obama’s parents was American. Thus, if Obama was born in Kenya (or any country other than the United States), he cannot legally serve as President of the United States because he is not a “natural born citizen,” even though he may be a citizen. Obama’s American citizen parent, Ann Dunham, had to have been a resident of the United States for 10 years, at least five of which were over the age of 14; Dunham did not meet that requirement until her 19th birthday in November of 1961 – three months after Obama was born.
Obama is neither a natural born citizen of the United States, nor is he an “African-American.” His father, Barack Obama, Sr., is allegedly one-eighth African (on his mother’s side, from the Luo tribe in Kenya) and his father’s remaining ancestry is purported to be Arabic. Candidate Obama is thus more accurately referred to as “Arab-American.” Obama is not (like many black Americans) the descendant of African slaves owned by white American slave-owners. Having Arab ancestors, Obama is, in fact, most likely a descendant of slave owners, because Arabs have, for many centuries, traditionally owned slaves and been active slave traders. Further, the names Barack and Hussein are of Arab origin. (Note: There is insufficient publicly-available evidence to state with certainty the percentages of Obama’s national ancestries.)  [513,514]
Although a reported divorce of Obama, Sr. and Ann Dunham in 1964 suggests they had been married on Thursday, February 2, 1961, there are no disclosed records or witnesses to indicate a marriage, and Obama’s wife Michelle states in an interview that Ann Dunham was “very young and very single when she had him (Barack Obama, Jr.).” In any event, Dunham was unmarried and barely 18, or possibly even under age 18, when she became pregnant. A divorce may simply have been for the purpose of “establishing” a marriage after the fact. [4,6,8,10,324,352,564]
Dunham is an atheist, an “Adlai Stevenson liberal,” a secular humanist, leftist social-activist, and a student of cultural anthropology. Ann Dunham meets Barack Obama Sr. while both are studying Russian at the University of Hawaii. Dunham is an excellent debater at school, and excels at defending the concepts of Karl Marx’ “The Communist Manifesto.” [2,4,5,9,10,324,612,744]
In 1955, Ann Dunham had moved with her parents from Dorado, Kansas, to the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. (It has been alleged that Stanley Armour Dunham, had been suspected of espionage during World War II and that Boeing has a 1944 security file on Dunham in connection with suspected sabotage of B-17 aircraft at its Wichita, Kansas plant, and the theft of B-29 blueprints - which made their way to the German intelligence agency, the Abwehr; those suspicions may have prompted Dunham to move his family from Kansas to Washington.) Ann Dunham attended Eckstein Middle School. The family then moved to Mercer Island in 1956 so that Ann could attend Mercer Island High School. The Mercer Island School Board was led by John Stenhouse, who was a member of the Communist Party USA, according to his testimony to the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Dunham’s teachers included communists Jim Wichterman, whose assignments included the reading of Karl Marx’ “The Communist Manifesto.” The hallway between Wichterman’s class and that of another leftist teacher, Val Foubert (whose class reading assignments included Margaret Mead’s writings on homosexuality), was known as “anarchy alley.” Dunham graduated from high school in 1960. Dunham attended the East Shore Unitarian Church in Bellevue, which was known as the “little Red church on the hill” because of its communist leanings. [527,558,612,743]
In 1960, Dunham emphasized her “free spirit” with this statement to high school friends, "I don’t need to date or marry to have children.” Teacher Wichterman later recalled that Dunham would question anything, asking “What’s so good about democracy? What’s so good about capitalism? What’s wrong with communism? What’s good about communism?” [408,527,612]
Dunham was apparently a “free spirit” sexually. One former friend said that “She couldn’t be the girl you went steady with, but she could be the one you spent time with.” That friend was not alone in that opinion. Dunham was also known to engage in inter-racial relationships; friend Susan Blake said that Dunham never dated “the crew-cut white boys.” [564,614]
Shortly after Dunham’s high school graduation in 1960, the family had abruptly left Washington and moved to Hawaii, where she briefly attended the University of Hawaii. Taking his daughter with him to Hawaii was perhaps Stanley Armour Dunham’s way of keeping an eye on her; he may have been reluctant to leave her behind at the University of Washington, after at least one “false pregnancy” scare. At the University of Hawaii in her freshman year, Dunham was described as shy and reluctant to participate in classroom discussions; out of the classroom she was friendly with the boys, frequently flirting and repeatedly touching them. [558,564]
Knowing of her sexual reputation, Obama, Sr. supposedly told Dunham, “It’s not mine” when she informed him, in December of 1960, that she was pregnant. Obama, Sr.’s classmates knew he had a wife in Africa. [564]
Dunham’s acquaintances recall that they often had difficulties knowing when she was telling the truth. One remarked that, “She would make you believe anything while you were face-to-face but, a few minutes after she'd leave, you're realize what she said wasn't very… realistic or true," explained one. Another friend recalls joining Dunham for dinner with her parents. Dunham tells an incredible story about a car accident; her skeptical mother lets her finish the story and then says, “That never happened.” [564]
One birth theory speculates that Dunham’s parents were disturbed by the news of the pregnancy (understandably, considering the scandal an unwed pregnancy would bring in 1961), and likely tried to persuade her to give the child up for adoption and then claim she had miscarried. There is speculation that Dunham left Hawaii and gave birth to Obama in Washington State (or perhaps Canada) at a facility for unwed mothers, and then decided to keep the baby. She returned to Hawaii, registered the child’s birth, claiming the child was born at home in Hawaii (thus resulting in two different birth certificates for Obama), and then promptly visited a friend in Seattle that same month, August of 1961. Her friend recalls having to show Dunham how to change the diaper. Dunham collects food stamps for a time. [564]
Almost immediately after giving birth to Obama in 1961, Dunham returns to Washington State to attend the University of Washington, leaving her infant to be cared for by her mother, and leaving Obama, Sr. at the University of Hawaii. [527]
In the fall of 1962, Obama’s father leaves Hawaii to attend Harvard and then to return to Kenya, with a woman named Ruth Nidesand, who he met at Harvard. Obama, Sr. marries Nidesand in Kenya in 1967; they are eventually divorced; Nidesand claims physical abuse. Obama, Sr. eventually has at least eight other children with four women (two of those additional children are borne by his former wife Kezia, while he is still married to Nidesand.) Obama, Sr. does not see Barack Jr. again until 1971, when he visits Hawaii for one month to attend a gathering of former classmates; he is eventually killed in 1982, at age 46, in an automobile accident. (A year earlier, Obama, Sr. had been in an automobile accident and had both legs amputated as a result of the incident. Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the final, fatal accident. The earlier accident was an apparent attempted hit-and-run assassination in retaliation for Obama’s testifying against the man who murdered his friend Tom Mboya in 1969.) [6,7,11,271,324,527,562]
The 1961 birth certificate posted on the Internet by the Obama campaign is suspected of being a forgery. If Obama does have a legitimate Hawaiian birth certificate, it possibly does not list a father if Dunham and Obama, Sr. were not married. (At that time, the custom was to omit the father’s name when the father and mother were not married). Or, the document may list a father other than Obama. Sr., or a birth place other than Hawaii. By July, 2008, there were unfounded allegations that the forgery had been performed by a Jay McKinnon, who describes himself as a “Department of Homeland Security-trained document specialist.” [12,325,494,548]
It should also be noted that most - if not all - of the people who have declared the birth certificate to be either authentic or a fake have seen only photographs, photocopies, or scanned images, and not an original paper document.
The Internet site “” states that the birth certificate provided by the Obama campaign is legitimate, but it should be noted that is left-leaning and is affiliated with the Annenberg Public Policy Center of Pennsylvania, which is run by Obama supporters and funded by the Annenberg Foundation, which also funded the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, where Obama and William Ayers distributed tens of millions of dollars to leftist organizations. Some point out that the Annenberg Foundation was originally funded by a wealthy Republican, the late Walter Annenberg, and therefore it could not possibly have contributed to leftist causes; that argument fails to consider the fact that wealthy benefactors often do not retain strict control over (or live long enough to control) the foundations they set up, and a grant that looks reasonable on paper does not necessarily result in a wise investment. Further, Annenberg once donated $50 million to the United Negro College Fund and has supported public television, neither of which would be considered conservative-leaning. “If it’s Annenberg it must be conservative” is not a valid argument. The Ford Foundation has distributed funds in ways which would not necessarily have been advocated by Henry Ford, and the fact that Annenberg is no longer alive to influence the spending of his foundation is not irrelevant. [302,548,733]
The birth certificate provided by the Obama campaign lists the father’s race as “African,” a term that would likely not have been used for the newborn’s race in 1961; instead, a birth certificate would have listed the race as “negro” or “colored.” The use of the word “African” further suggests that the document provided by the Obama campaign was a newly-created fabrication. [372]
On August 13, 1961, nine days after his birth, an Obama birth notice appears in a Honolulu newspaper, which indicates that “Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama” had a son on August 4. The address listed in the notice is that of Ann Dunham’s parents. [362]
There has also been speculation that Obama was born in Kenya and brought to Hawaii as an infant, because the airlines would (in 1961) not have allowed a pregnant Dunham to return home to Hawaii. Relatives of Obama in Kenya, who likely are unaware of the eligibility requirements of the U.S. Presidency, state that he was born in Kenya. [197,199,248]
Obama’s campaign has given the names of two different Hawaiian hospitals where he was supposed to have been born (Kapiolani Medical Center and Queens Medical Center, both in Honolulu). No one has been able to confirm the birth from either hospital’s records. There is allegedly a register of the birth in the public records office, dated August 8, 1961, one week after the birth, but it supposedly does not list a place of birth. (Note that a register of birth is not the same as a birth certificate.) [248]
Note that between November 20 and December 2 of 2008, 13 separate Hawaiian hospitals were contacted to determine if Obama had been born there; none of them could or would confirm it was the facility where he was born; the hospitals contacted included Queen’s Medical Center (where Obama says be was born) and Kapiolani Medical Center (where Obama’s half-sister Maya says he was born). [584]
A writer for “Online Journal” publishes an article on June 9, 2008 claiming that a research team went to Mombasa, Kenya, and located a certificate of the Kenyan birth of Barack Obama, Jr. It is unclear why that story, if it is true, did not get “traction.” There is also speculation that certified copies of a Kenyan birth certificate, with embossed raised seals and with birth witness signatures, are now in the hands of three individuals; the documents allegedly state that Obama was born at 7:24 p.m., on August 4, 1961, at Coast Provincial General Hospital, in Mombasa, Kenya. Government authorities in Kenya have stated that all documents regarding Obama would be under seal until after the November 4 election. (If Obama was born in Hawaii, of course, Kenya would have no Obama birth documents to seal.) [248,299,301,407]
The Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, allegedly has done some investigating and purportedly believes Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya. The British Secret Service, MI6, allegedly has documents relating to Obama, Sr., because he was politically active at a time when Kenya had not yet received its independence from England. [558]
There have been claims that Obama’s paternal grandmother (his father’s mother), Sarah Hussein Obama (or Sarah Onyango Obama) (b. 1922), told reporters that Barack Obama, Jr. was born in Kenya, when her son Barack, Sr. came to visit accompanied by a pregnant Ann Dunham - who was very close to her delivery date. Sarah Hussein Obama further states that she was present in the delivery room when Obama was born in Kenya. One half-brother and one half-sister of candidate Obama also claim he was born in Kenya. This would be consistent with a reported stop by Dunham in the state of Washington on the return trip to Hawaii, and with the possible existence of only a Hawaiian “register of birth,” rather than an actual birth certificate. The Chicago Tribune was told by Dunham friend Susan Blake that Dunham visited her in Seattle with the newborn infant shortly after his birth. [248,289,299,324,367]
Note that Hawaiian law (Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8) allows the State of Hawaii to issue a certificate of live birth even if the child is born outside the State, provided the parents have been legal residents of Hawaii for at least one year immediately preceding the birth. (Arguably, Obama, Sr. may not have been a legal resident of Hawaii for at least one year prior to August, 1961. Ann Dunham graduated from Mercer Island High School in Washington in 1960; if, as of August, 1961, she had been a legal resident of Hawaii for at least one year, it was just barely one year.) Such a certificate of live birth does, however, require that the place of birth be correctly recorded. Thus, had Obama been born in Kenya and shortly thereafter brought to Hawaii, Dunham could have requested a Hawaiian birth certificate for her son, but that document would have been in addition to the birth certificate issued in Kenya. Such a Hawaiian certificate, if issued, does not, of course, make the child a United States citizen; it is merely a birth-recording convenience offered by the State. [301]
Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8 reads, in part, as follows, “Certificates for children born out of state. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.” [583]
Note that states typically have a “long form” (certificate of live birth) and a “short form” (certification of birth) for their birth documents. The long form, or vault copy, contains the more detailed information, such as the hospital name, names of parents, date, time, infant’s weight and length, footprint, doctor’s name, mother’s signature, and certified signature of the doctor. In the pre-computer time of 1961, the long form document would have been filled in by hand or typed on a typewriter. The short form (or “abstract”) contains more limited information, and is the less desirable of the two forms when “absolute” proof is desired. When someone requests a copy of a birth certificate from a state (or county), the document provided is typically the short form, computer-printed at the time of the request, and based on information on computer databases; the vault copy is generally not retrieved and examined. The short form is then stamped or embossed with an official seal before being given to the person who requested it. Had Obama been born in Kenya, Ann Dunham could have returned with him to Hawaii and had his birth recorded there; the long form would state the place of birth as Kenya, while the short form would make no mention of the birthplace. [694]
The birth document provided by the Obama campaign, whether valid or forged, is the short form. There are assertions by some that even the long form, or “vault copy,” per Hawaiian Statute, allows the birth in another state or country to be registered in Hawaii. Thus having a Hawaiian birth certificate proves only that the birth was registered in Hawaii, it does not prove that the named individual was born in Hawaii. The place of birth is recorded on the vault copy document - but that is the document which Obama refuses to produce. [492,574]
Only a few sources have been listed here for the many Obama birth speculations; there are far too many, and rumors and stories can readily be found on the Internet. Speculation will not end until original birth and citizenship documents are released, and the likelihood of that may be minimal. A lawsuit has been filed by attorney Philip Berg (a Democrat, Clinton supporter, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania) to block Obama from running for and becoming President without first proving he is an eligible U.S. citizen; it alleges that Obama was born in Kenya. Whether that lawsuit leads to anything remains to be seen, but if the truth damages Obama, there will certainly be continued efforts by many to keep that truth successfully hidden. [13,543]
Even if Obama was born in Hawaii, an important issue may also be whether he became and is still an Indonesian citizen. [258,305]
One of Obama’s official web sites, “Fight the Smears,” states that “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children. Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4, 1982.” This statement by the Obama campaign thus admits that he was a British (Kenyan) citizen at birth. With such “split loyalties” at birth, he is arguably not a “natural born citizen” and is ineligible to serve as President of the United States. [507]
Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution states that “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President.” The “grandfather clause” portion of the rule refers only to those persons who were living in the United States at the time the Constitution was ratified, and is therefore irrelevant to anyone living today. Thus, for all people alive today, the requirement is essentially, “No person except a natural born Citizen shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
Note that some have argued that Section 1 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution allows Obama to serve as President. The relevant part reads, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” This Amendment was meant to prevent the Supreme Court from ruling as unconstitutional the Civil Rights Act of 1866 (which granted citizenship to former slaves). Nothing in the 14th Amendment, however, changes the requirement that a President must be a “natural born citizen,” rather than simply a “citizen” or a “naturalized citizen.” (California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, is a “naturalized citizen,” but he nevertheless cannot legally serve as President because he is not a “natural born citizen.”) The 14th Amendment notwithstanding, an individual can serve as President only if he or she is a natural born citizen of the United States. (Note that the term “natural born citizen” appears in the U.S. Constitution only in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5.) [509]
According to the University of Hawaii (UH), Ann Dunham first attended classes at UH on September 26, 1960. Dunham was also a student at UH between the spring of 1963 and summer of 1966, and sporadically at other times between 1972 and 1992. She received a BA in Mathematics in the summer of 1967, an MA in Anthropology in the fall of 1983, and a PhD in Anthropology in the summer of 1992. [408]
According to the University of Washington (UW), Dunham was enrolled at UW in the fall of 1961 (almost immediately after having given birth to Obama), the spring of 1962, and the winter of 1962. Note that the Obama campaign places Dunham only in Hawaii until she later moves to Indonesia with Lolo Soetoro; it omits any reference to her attending UW. These dates indicate that Ann Dunham was not even living with Barack Obama, Sr., because she attended UW while he remained at UH. [408]
Further complicating the Obama history is the alleged existence of July, 1961 photographs of Ann Dunham taken by a school friend on a Honolulu beach; in the photos, Dunham is wearing a bikini and is decidedly not pregnant. (The media has not broadcast  interviews with any former school friends of Dunham who remember her being pregnant; on the other hand, the media has not broadcast many interviews at all of people from Dunham’s or Obama’s past.) The photos were likely not from July of 1961. The originator of the July bikini story also suggests that Dunham attended Notre Dame de Jamhour in Lebanon, because of a possible “NDJ” emblem seen on Dunham clothing in a childhood photograph. That school, however, did not admit female students before 1975. Clearly, jumping to conclusions is not only possible, it can readily be stimulated by a candidate who is less than forthcoming about his past. [558]
In 1965, Obama’s father writes in the “East Africa Journal” an article called, “Problems Facing Our Socialism,” in which he criticizes Kenya for not being socialist enough. He writes, “Theoretically, there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100 per cent of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed." Obama the Presidential candidate has so far suggested an income tax rate of “only” 39.6 per cent (not counting Social Security and Medicare taxes, and state income taxes). [271]
Obama, in his second book, “The Audacity of Hope,” clearly states that, like his father, he is also no great fan of the American system of free enterprise capitalism; he describes capitalism as “chaotic and unforgiving,” and has a desire to roll back the “ownership society.” [271]
In 1967 (possibly 1966), Ann Dunham marries Indonesian Muslim Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo (1936-1987), who she met at the University of Hawaii. Soetoro then returns to Indonesia. (Note that Soetoro was originally from Malaysia, but lived in Indonesia most of his life.) Obama and his mother later move to Indonesia to join Soetoro, probably in 1967. Soetoro likely adopted Obama, whose name is changed to Barry Soetoro. Elementary school records in Indonesia list Obama’s name as Barry Soetoro, his religion as Islam, and his citizenship as Indonesian. Obama attends Franciscus Primary School (1967-1969) and Besuki State Elementary School Menteng 01 in Jakarta (1969-1971). [6,14,172,289,324,329]
Lolo Soetoro is an executive with American Mobil corporation, and is a key liaison between the oil company and the Suharto regime; Suharto had been “installed” as the American-friendly Indonesian President/dictator in 1967, after a CIA-engineered 1965-1967 coup that deposed President Sukarno (who was considered soft on communism and a threat to American oil interests). Strangely, the leftist Ann Dunham, who would have been more politically sympathetic to the deposed Sukarno, married a man with ties to the bloodthirsty dictator Suharto. [615]
Obama practices Islam half-heartedly, irregularly attending prayer services at the mosque. According to one of his Indonesian school principals, Tine Hahiyary, the young Obama studies “Mangaji” (or “Mengagi”), which involves the recitation of the Quran. Note that Mangaji, in Indonesian schools, requires learning to recite the Quran in the Arabic language, and not the student’s native tongue. Non-Muslims or even moderate Muslims would not send their child to Mangaji classes; it is much more involved that a Christian child attending “Sunday School” class. (Many Indonesians, in fact, wonder why Obama is hiding his Muslim past.) [15,251,332,336]
A former classmate of Obama in Indonesia, Rony Amiris, in 2007, describes Obama as having enjoyed football, playing marbles, and being a very devout Muslim. Amir said, "Barry was previously quite religious in Islam." Classmate Emirsyah Satar stated that Obama “was often in the prayer room wearing a sarong.” Obama was often observed in the school’s prayer room and at the local mosque for traditional Friday prayers. [332,521]

Publicly, Obama denies he ever was a Muslim and claims he is a devout Christian. (He also alleges he was never in church when his pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, was spewing anti-white and anti-American rhetoric in his sermons.) Many, if not most, of the world’s Muslims feel that “Obama may not want to be counted as a Muslim but Muslims are eager to count him as one of their own.” One Obama problem may be that if he is seen by radical Islamists as someone who denounced the Muslim religion to become a Christian, his background can be exploited to “argue that an apostate is leading the war on terror…” which can then help terrorists “…galvanize (additional) sympathizers into action.” [252]
If it is assumed that Obama is legally adopted by his Indonesian step-father, Lolo Soetoro, Obama becomes an Indonesian citizen, according to Indonesian law. Because Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship, Obama thus loses his U.S. citizenship when he becomes an Indonesian citizen, in or about 1967. At this point Obama also ceases to be a Kenyan citizen, according to Indonesian and Kenyan law. Ann Dunham would have been required to renounce her U.S. citizenship, under Indonesian law, for her marriage to Lolo Soetoro to be considered legal in Indonesia. If, after Obama returned to Hawaii, he applied for and was granted American citizenship, he would be a naturalized citizen (like California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger) and not a natural-born citizen, and would therefore be ineligible to serve as President of the U.S. It is possible that Obama did not even bother to become a naturalized citizen of the United States, and remains an Indonesian citizen. Appropriate federal records would exist if Obama made application for naturalization; if they exist, they have not been made public. [258,300,305,492]
Note that Indonesia’s policy of not allowing dual citizenship must be respected by the United States, in accordance with the Hague Convention of 1930. Note also that Obama, as a child, was not required to personally renounce his U.S. citizenship; that could have been accomplished for him by his mother. [492]
Note also that, according to Indonesian legal experts, it is difficult for non-Indonesian citizens to enroll in public schools in that country; this further supports the assumption that Obama was adopted by Soetoro. Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro, has also stated that Obama was adopted by her father. [329]
In 1967, Oginga Odinga, a comrade of Obama’s father and possibly his brother-in-law, is arrested in Kenya for holding a rally that turns into a riot. In 2006, candidate Obama supports Odinga’s son, socialist Raila Odinga, in his run for the Presidency in Kenya. [271]
In 1971 or 1972, Obama is sent back to Hawaii to live with his mother’s parents; his mother remains in Indonesia. (Dunham likely traveled with Obama to Hawaii, and then promptly returned to Indonesia without him, but with his half-sister, Maya Soetoro.) Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham (1918-1992), manages a furniture store, and his grandmother, Madelyn Lee Payne Dunham (b. 1922), is a bank vice-president. [16,289,324,329]
In December of 1971, Barack Obama, Sr. returns to Hawaii to attend a party and visit with former University friends Neil Abercrombie and Pake Zane. Obama, Sr. apparently spends very little time with his son during that visit. A few photographs of Obama, Sr., Ann Dunham, and Obama, Jr. are taken at the airport. Note that in later years, Abercrombie state they have no recollection of ever seeing Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr. together. Abercrombie later becomes Hawaii’s first district’s Congressman and member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus; he works openly with the Democratic Socialists of America. [527,562]
Obama’s maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, age 86, still resides in Hawaii. The Obama campaign has kept her off-limits, and prohibits interviews with her. (Note: Madelyn Dunham dies on November 3, 2008, the day before the election.) [329,515]
Aside from a few visits to Hawaii, Ann Dunham spends most of the rest of her life based in Indonesia, but she travels extensively, to Ghana, Thailand, Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and China. Dunham took her daughter Maya with her on a 1986 trip along China’s “silk road.” Dunham returns to Hawaii before her death in 1995. [329,614]
While in Indonesia, Dunham spent time in Yogyakarta, where she studied native handicrafts; she eventually returned to the University of Hawaii to receive a 1992 PhD in anthropology, and wrote a dissertation “Peasant Blacksmithing in Indonesia: Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds.” Dunham’s employment included teaching English at the American embassy in Jakarta, consulting (setting up a “village credit” program) for U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), “program officer” specializing in women’s work for the Ford Foundation in Jakarta, some form of bank consulting work in Pakistan (microfinance program for the poor), and employment with Women’s World Banking. Note that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is alleged to have used both the USAID and the Ford Foundation as “front” agencies. Whether Dunham had any CIA connections is unknown, but it is also unclear how Dunham could afford a life of globe-trotting and post-graduate education without significant employment. Note that Dunham was passingly fluent in Urdu (the national language of Pakistan) and several other languages, something the CIA would find valuable. [607,608,609,610,611,612,613,614,615]
Strangely, Ann Dunham lists her name as “Sutoro” in her 1992 PhD dissertation, rather than the name “Soetoro,” which appears on her divorce decree; no explanation for the discrepancy has been uncovered. [747]
After returning to Hawaii and upon turning age 18, Obama could possibly have relinquished his Indonesian citizenship and become a naturalized U.S. citizen, with the proper paperwork filed through the U.S. State Department and by swearing an oath of allegiance to the United States. It is believed that Obama did not do so. [258,300,301]
If Obama did not relinquish his Indonesian citizenship and become a naturalized U.S. citizen, he remains an Indonesian citizen, and has not been a U.S. citizen since being adopted by Lolo Soetoro in Indonesia in 1966 or 1967. Thus, he is ineligible to be President of the United States. (He is also ineligible to be a United States Senator.) Obama’s repeated failure to provide documentation to prove he is a U.S. citizen suggests to many that it does not exist, and he is therefore possibly perpetrating a colossal fraud on the 300 million citizens of the United States. Obama may, in fact, be an illegal resident alien, subject to expulsion from the United States Senate, arrest, and deportation to Indonesia. Obama could also be subject to a massive class action fraud lawsuit by everyone who made donations to his campaign (over $600 million), under the mistaken belief that he was eligible to serve as President. [258,300]
Obama attends the elite, expensive, private Punahou High School (1971-1979). The school is racially diverse and whites are not in the majority. The young Obama is sometimes called “Barry the Butt” (because he was pudgy in his earlier years). In public schools in Hawaii (but perhaps not at the Punahou private school) is traditionally known as “Kill Haole Day” (“Kill Whitey Day”), where Caucasian students are beaten up, usually in the school bathrooms. [16,17,324]
Because of his drug abuse, Obama’s grades are poor in his final two years of high school. Obama later writes that “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though.” (Note: by “blow,” Obama means cocaine; “smack” means heroin.) His grades may also have been affected by peer pressure, as his “choom gang” friends on the basketball court and football field would likely have teased him for having good grades. His jock friends are known as “choomers” (smokers), who smoked pakalolo (pot) and drank beer (alcohol could be legally purchased at age 18 in Hawaii). Obama also sang in a school chorale group. [18,575]
Bryon Leong, a former classmate of Obama’s at Punahou, states that Obama “…was known as a partier, as a guy looking for a good time, but not much more," and, “There was pot in Hawaii in the 1970s, but it wasn't a big deal.” [332]
Dunham leaves Soetoro in 1972 and returns to Hawaii. She divorces Soetoro in 1980. [289]
Ann Dunham rarely sees Obama after 1975. [324]
By his own admission, Obama’s high school grades are not exemplary; rather than do homework, he reads the works of black authors like James Baldwin (who believed that America was hopelessly irredeemable), communists Richard Wright, Langston Hughes, Ralph Ellison, and W.E.B. DuBois, and civil rights activist Malcolm X (who was killed in 1965, and whose history led Obama to write in “Dreams From My Father” that “Only Malcolm X's autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me"). [20,190,558]
High school friend Keith Kakugawa relates later that Obama “…made everything out like it was all racial.” After Obama complains about being picked on at the basketball court because of his race, Kakugawa’s father tells Obama, “No, Barry, it’s not because you’re black, it’s because you missed two shots in a row.” [20]
While a teenager in Hawaii, Obama spends considerable time with Frank Marshall Davis (whose identity Obama hides by describing him only as “Frank” in his book, “Dreams From My Father”). Davis is a dope-smoking drinking buddy of Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham; Dunham and Davis had known each other in Kansas. Obama had met Davis shortly after arriving in Hawaii, at age 10, but was most influenced by him during his high school years. In place of his absent father and stepfather, Davis becomes Obama’s mentor. [19,21,389]
Davis is a member of the Communist Party of the USA, a poet, propagandist, “bitter opponent of capitalism,” and radical agitator; in 1948, Davis had fled Chicago after the FBI and the House Un-American Activities Committee investigated his subversive anti-American activities. Davis is also a bi-sexual, sex pervert, child molester (bragging of repeated sexual encounters with a 13 year-old girl), and pornographer, and is the author of the book “Sex Rebel: Black” under the pseudonym Bob Greene. Davis “…would cruise in Hawaii parks looking for couples or female tourists to have sex with. He derived sexual gratification from bondage, simulated rape and being flogged and urinated on. He boasted that ‘the number of white babes interested in at least one meeting with a Negro male has been far more than I can handle’ and wished ‘America were as civilised as, say, Scandinavia.’” He concluded: ‘I regret none of my experiences or unusual appetites; for me they are normal.’” [21,259,261]
Obama joins Davis at his home on most evenings, shares alcohol and drugs, is tutored in socialism, and taught not to trust the white establishment. "They'll train you so good," Davis said, "you'll start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that shit." Davis teaches Obama, “Black people have a reason to hate” and “You may be a well-trained, well-paid nigger, but you’re a nigger just the same.” [22,33,261]
Davis sometimes works as a street vendor, selling hot dogs from his Chicago-style wheeled cart near his home in Waikiki. From the cart Davis also sells drugs (marijuana and cocaine), frequently accompanied by Obama and his grandfather. Davis is the main source of drugs used by Obama while in high school. [429]
It is believed that Davis was a close friend of Thomas Ayers (father of William Ayers) in Chicago, and that it was Davis who encouraged Obama to attend Columbia College in New York and hook up with William Ayers. [259]
Davis’ Marxist-inspired poetry includes lines like, “Smash on, victory-eating Red Army!” Titles of his poems include, “Christ is a Dixie Nigger.” [261]
In Davis’ autobiography, he writes of his seduction of a young white girl, age 13, named “Anne.” This fuels speculation that the “Anne” in Davis’ book is Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, and that Obama may actually be the child of Frank Marshall Davis. Obama’s grandfather and Davis were close friends, but there is no hard evidence that Obama’s father was Davis. When Ann Dunham moved to Hawaii with her parents in 1959 or 1960 she was already age 16 or 17. Davis had known the Dunhams in Kansas, however, so Davis would have had contact with Ann Dunham before she moved to Hawaii. The Dunhams also lived in Seattle, where Ann Dunham attended the very liberal Mercer Island High School. There is speculation that Davis had been in Seattle, doing organizing work for the communist-infiltrated International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU); that may have placed Davis with Dunham when she was 13. The ILWU is linked to the Honolulu Recorder, the newspaper Davis worked for in Hawaii. Lastly, nude photos of a woman purported to be Ann Dunham and alleged to have been taken by Frank Marshall Davis are circulating on the Internet, but faked photos are not terribly difficult to produce using computers. [21,259,260,365,370,389]
This Davis-as-father speculation is listed here only to provide the reader with as much information as possible about Obama’s background; it is not meant as an endorsement of the speculation itself. If additional information is obtained which confirms or refutes the speculation, it will be presented here.
Some have noted that Frank Marshall Davis’ son, Mark Davis, bears a reasonable resemblance to candidate Obama, and what some would consider a stronger resemblance than shared by Obama Jr. and Obama Sr. The mother of Mark Davis, Helen Canfield, was, like Ann Dunham, a white woman. One could speculate that Obama’s father was not Barack Obama, Sr., but Frank Marshall Davis. Because Davis and Ann Dunham could certainly not have let that relationship be known (Davis was married and age 55, Dunham was only 17, and Davis was Stanley Dunham’s friend), Dunham may have convinced Obama, Sr. that he was the father-to-be. When he, Obama, Sr., later learned that was not the case, he abruptly left Dunham, moved on to Harvard and then returned to Kenya. There has been speculation that Dunham and Obama, Sr. never actually lived together in Hawaii and never got married; this speculation is supported by the fact that Obama, Sr. continued to attend the University of Hawaii, while Dunham attended the University of Washington during late 1961 and early 1962, before returning to Hawaii to again attend UH. [369,408]
If the Davis-as-father speculation is true, Dunham may have continued the lie for the benefit of her son and her own parents. Davis would later be eager to be Obama’s mentor if he was, in fact, Obama’s father. Obama may not have learned the true identity of his father for some time, perhaps not until after the death of his grandfather, Stanley Dunham in 1992. It was not until after his grandfather’s death that Obama began work on his book, “Dreams From My Father.” At that point he may have understood who his real father was. His book needed to include the “Kenyan history” in order to continue the charade for his planned political career, but the “dreams” Obama needed to pursue had more to do with a continuation of Davis’ legacy. It is worth noting also that Obama’s reluctance to give financial support to his poverty-stricken half-brother George, in a Nairobi slum, or to his destitute aunt in Boston, may be due to his knowing that they are not actually related to him at all. This is speculation based only on photographs and circumstantial evidence; the disclosure of appropriate original documentation by Obama would resolve unanswered questions and end speculation. The remainder of this timeline continues with the assumption that the father of Barack Obama, Jr. was Kenyan Barack Obama, Sr. [369]
There is also speculation that Obama is the son of the civil right activist, Malcolm X (Malcolm Little), who was murdered in 1965, allegedly by members of the Nation of Islam. (Ann Dunham graduated from high school in the Seattle area in 1960, and Malcolm X formed the Nation of Islam Temple No. 67 in Seattle that same year, and was a guest speaker at various universities, including the University of Washington.) It is not difficult to see that Obama resembles Malcolm X much more than he resembles Barack Obama, Jr., but a resemblance is of course not the same as hard evidence. Perhaps the truth will never be known without the release of original birth records or DNA testing… and the likelihood of that is minimal. Dunham was already in Hawaii, however, when she became pregnant in late 1960. In order for Malcolm X to be the father, he had to have been in Hawaii in late 1960 or Dunham had to leave Hawaii to be with him; no evidence of either circumstance has been produced. [524,526,527]
Note that the Malcolm-X-as-father scenario would, however, explain why Obama seemed to be “looked after” - both financially and otherwise - throughout his college years. Obama would later receive a letter of recommendation for Harvard from Percy Sutton, who was Malcolm X’s attorney. Khalid al-Mansour (aka “Donald Warden”) becomes the main financial backer for Obama; al-Mansour has been a close associate of Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan, and Malcolm X, who was the national spokesman for NOI. It is not unreasonable to assume that, if Obama was indeed the son of Malcolm X, those who were close to the civil rights leader would “look after him” in any way possible, making sure he was taught in the ways of Islam and socialism, funded by Arab and Syrian financiers. Obama’s benefactors would include Tony Rezko, Percy Sutton, Khalid al-Mansour, Muhammadian Mian Soomro, Rashid Khalidi, Edward Said, and William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, who would have known Malcolm X and associates like Black Panther members Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Note also that a close neighbor of Obama’s in Chicago is Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Malcolm X split with the Nation of Islam partly over the issue of the illegitimate children of its leader, Elijah Muhammed. If Malcolm X then fathered his own illegitimate child (Obama), he would have had to cover that up in order to retain his reputation of being “above the fray,”- and to protect his son from the criminal record, death threats, and violence he himself experienced. Barack Obama, Sr., who Malcolm X had met in Kenya, became the fall guy. Many pieces of the puzzle would fit – and the Obama birth certificate is one of the key pieces.
That the father of candidate Obama was someone other than Barack Obama, Sr. is speculation. Right or wrong, therefore, the remainder of this timeline continues with the assumption that the father of Barack Obama, Jr. was Kenyan Barack Obama, Sr.
Obama moves to Los Angeles, and attends Occidental College, where he plays basketball and continues taking drugs. He becomes friends with Pakistani Muslims Mohammed Hasan Chandoo (perhaps Chandio) and Wahid Hamid, and Indian Vinai Thummalapally. At Occidental College (a private school for wealthy kids whose grades weren’t good enough to get them into the University of Southern California), Obama indulges in alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. He becomes interested in the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. While at Occidental, Obama is mentored by an openly gay professor, Lawrence Goldyn, who has a strong influence on Obama’s acceptance of gays. Fellow student Thummalapally lives with Obama in the summer of 1980. [20,28,188,189,191,245,332]
Obama’s freshman year roommate at Occidental is Imad Husain, a Pakistani. [332]
At Occidental, Obama allegedly meets a professor of politics who happens to be a CIA expert on the Soviet Union and an associate of Zbigniew Brzezinski (who would later be the National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter). Without the release of his school records, it is impossible to determine whether Obama was a student of Brzezinski. [615,616,618]
Obama’s friends at Occidental tend to be the more politically active blacks, foreign students, Chicanos, Marxist professors, structural feminists, and punk-rock performance poets. Obama is rebuked on one occasion for calling another black student, who wasn’t “black enough,” an “Uncle Tom.” One female student criticizes Obama with the remark, “You always think it’s about you.” [187,192]
While at Occidental, Obama joins the Students for Economic Democracy (SED), which is a branch of the Campaign for Economic Democracy (CED), a group that was founded by radical, anti-American, Marxist activist Tom Hayden (former husband of actress Jane Fonda), who was also active with the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). William Ayers’ subsequent radical group, the Weather Underground, was comprised of many former SDS members; in 1969 the Weather Underground - then called simply “Weatherman” - declared “war on Amerikka.” In 1970, Ayers explains the philosophy of he movement, "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home; kill your parents; that's where it's really at." Ayers dedicated his book, “Prairie Fire,” to Sirhan Sirhan (Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin) and others he considered “”political prisoners.” Obama’s first known public speech takes place at an Occidental College event sponsored by the SED. [259,332,432,454]
An FBI informant who had infiltrated the Weather Underground witnessed a meeting at which the group discussed a future communist takeover of America in which some 25 million "diehard capitalists" would need to be killed. The members discussed a future in which Cuba, North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union would establish "re-education centers" in the Southwestern United States. [373]
Obama may have made a 1980 trip to Kenya to visit his father. During that trip, he may also have visited Pakistan, and Indonesia (to visit his mother). It is possible, however, that the reports of a 1980 trip are mistaken, and Obama’s only such trip was in 1981. [194,195,196]
On November 5, 1980, Ann Dunham is granted a divorce from Lolo Soetoro. The divorce decree states that “The parties have 1 child(ren) below age 18 and 1 child(ren) above 18…” This suggests, but does not prove, that Obama was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. (Dunham’s attorney in the divorce, Gilardy H. William, Jr., later becomes the Hawaii attorney for the Democrat National Committee.) The divorce decree lists the names as Stanley Ann Soetoro and Lolo Soetoro. [719,746]
During his college years, Obama maintains contact with his father through correspondence, until his death in 1982. [271]
Probably in late 1980, Obama decides to stop using the name Barry Soetoro and returns to the name Barack Obama, Jr. [194]
Obama is disappointed in a grade he receives from political science Professor Roger Boesche, and complains he is being graded “on a different curve” because of his race. [20]
In 1981, Obama visits his mother and half-sister in Indonesia, and then continues on for three weeks to Karachi, Pakistan and Hyderabad, India, with his friends Chandoo and Hamid, and finally to Kenya to visit his father’s family. Obama’s mother had returned to Hawaii in 1980 to file for divorce from Lolo Soetoro; it is unclear whether she was actually in Indonesia at the time of Obama’s 1981 visit. [23,25,26,194,195,196,245,549]
Note that Indonesian passports expire every five years. If Obama became a citizen of Indonesia through adoption by Lolo Soetoro in 1967 and was then issued a passport, by 1982 he would need to again renew the document. Obama turned age 18 in 1979. If he renewed his Indonesian passport at any point after his 18th birthday, Obama would have officially lost U.S. citizenship – if he even still had it – according to 8 USC Sections 1481(a)(2) and 101(a)(1), because of “…taking an oath or making allegiance or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state… after having attained the age of 18.” [549]
Obama stays with the family of Hassan Chandoo while in Karachi. Another of Obama’s hosts, in Jacobabad, Pakistan, is Muhammadian Mian Soomro, Obama’s senior by 11 years, son of a Pakistani politician (Ahmadmian Soomro, the deputy speaker of the West Pakistan Assembly) and himself a politician, who later becomes interim President of Pakistan when Pervez Musharraf resigns in August of 2008. Soomro states that “someone” personally requested that his father “watch over” Barack Obama, but Soomro will not name that individual - who allegedly is an American, possibly with CIA ties, now living in South America. [24,615,617]
It is unknown who financed Obama’s costly, multinational 1981 trip.
Note that a trip to Pakistan in 1981 was not possible for Americans, except for those who were on official government business, because it was on the list of dangerous nations banned by the State Department for U.S. travelers. Pakistan was also under martial law at that time. It is possible that Obama was able to enter Pakistan on an Indonesian passport, but he would have had that document only if he was an Indonesian citizen; if he had become an Indonesian citizen, he was no longer an American citizen and his use of an American passport would have been illegal. Pakistan, being almost 100 per cent Muslim, would have welcomed foreign Muslim visitors in 1981. The U.S. State Department would not have known Obama was in Pakistan had he traveled on an Indonesian (or a Kenyan or British) passport. [549]
Note that Obama’s Pakistani host, Soomro, worked for several major banks, including the Bank of America, which owned the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). BCCI has been involved in money laundering, bribery, terrorist support, tax evasion, smuggling, and illegal immigration; its nickname is the “Bank of Crooks and Criminals International.” American intelligence used BCCI for funneling money to the mujahadeen to assist in its fight against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. [617]
Obama’s school records from Occidental College have been kept secret. This may simply be to hide poor grades. It is also possible that those records list Obama as an Indonesian, and not an American, citizen. [259,380]
Obama moves to New York City and enrolls at Columbia University. He attends socialist conferences “for inspiration.” His roommate is Pakistani Muslim Sohale Siddiqi. Siddiqi is a drug user; Obama allegedly stops using drugs while at Columbia. Living a few blocks away from Obama and Columbia is William Ayers (at 520 West 123rd Street). [26,27,206,297]
Obama’s English professor at Columbia is Edward Said, a pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel activist. [387]
Obama may have met Zbigniew Brzezinski while at Columbia, as Brzezinski taught international relations at the school. [618]
At Columbia, Obama studies political science and international relations. His thesis is allegedly on nuclear disarmament. (The Obama campaign will not release copies of that document.) Obama graduates from Columbia in June of 1983, with a degree in political science, without honors. [29,264]
Note: Both at Occidental College in California and at Columbia College in New York, Obama’s roommates are foreign Muslims. This may be indicative of something, and it would be worth knowing if the students themselves chose roommates or had them assigned to them. Whether chosen or assigned, were the pairings because of Muslim backgrounds, or foreign backgrounds, or foreign citizenship? Do Obama’s hidden college records reveal the answers to those questions?
After graduation from Columbia, Obama joins the New York Public Interest Research Group, an organization founded by Ralph Nader. Obama becomes an organizer at Harlem’s City College, working with student volunteers on recycling programs. [31]
Like his Occidental College papers, Obama’s academic files from Columbia have been kept secret. While attending Columbia, Obama lived off campus, near William Ayers. It is possible Obama first met Ayers during those years, 1981-1983. There is speculation that Frank Marshall Davis arranged for Obama to meet William Ayers in New York, and their being neighbors was not a coincidence; Ayers then  possibly suggested that Obama return to Chicago with him. (Was Ayers the reason Obama moved to Chicago?) Years later, Obama and Ayers are again neighbors, in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. [259]
Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia students from that time period; none remembered Obama. Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008 Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knows him, and they all know me.  I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. Ever! ... Nobody recalls him. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not kidding.” Root adds that he also was “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” and “You don't get more exact than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, 20th reunion, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! Who was he, and five years ago, nobody even knew who he was... the guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him. Is that not strange? It's very strange...” Note that Obama’s photograph does not appear in the school’s yearbook, and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia. [332,346]
Obama and Ayers share a mutual friend, Edward Wadie Said, a Palestinian-American, political activist, anti-Israel professor at Columbia; Said was called the “professor of terror” by the American magazine, “Commentary.” In 1998, Obama and his wife attend a banquet at which Said is the keynote speaker; Obama is seated next to Said at the well-attended dinner. [332,334,335]
Obama regularly attends Marxist-socialist conferences at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in Manhattan. [332,337]
Obama works briefly for Business International Corporation in New York, a small newsletter-publishing firm that prints articles relating to global business; Obama later “embellishes” that job, saying he was hired as a “research assistant” by a “consulting house to multinational corporations,” had his own private secretary, and dealt with Japanese financiers and German bond traders. His former co-workers say Obama’s accounts of his job are grossly inflated - he wore jeans, shared cubicles with others in a dumpy office, had no secretary, and merely re-wrote articles for newsletters. Obama remarks later in life that the job exposed him to the “coldness of capitalism.” [30,31,32]
In 1983, Obama falls in love with a white woman, but ends the relationship after he realizes he will have to adapt to her white world, rather than the other way around. [357]
Obama moves to Chicago, and hangs out with black militants and leftists. Obama works as a “community organizer” for the “Industrial Areas Foundation” (IAF), an organization founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul Alinsky. Its national activities have included a “Citizens USA” project to obtain citizenship for over one million illegal aliens. (Coincidentally, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s senior honors thesis at Wellesley College, “There is Only the Fight,” is about Alinsky; in 1968 Alinsky offered Clinton a job, which she declined.) [33,45,46,192,229]
Obama also works with the Alinsky group “Developing Communities Project” (DCP), and “ACORN” (the “Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now”) and Project Vote, both Alinsky-network creations. Obama’s duties include organizing residents of the Altgeld Gardens housing project on Chicago’s south side. ACORN is an off-shoot of what had been the National Welfare Rights League (NWRL), a militant 1960s group that staged protests in welfare offices and, often successfully, demanded increased benefits with threats of violence. ACORN was founded by William Ayers’ SDS associate, Wade Rathke, and is currently the largest and most powerful leftist organization in the United States. [45,324,227,322]
Obama’s Altgeld Gardens work allegedly involves forcing a clean-up of asbestos. Obama’s mentor during his time on the project was Hazel Johnson, who argues that she discovered the asbestos problem and led the efforts to resolve it; according to Johnson, Obama exaggerated his role in the project in his book, “Dreams From My Father.” [345]
Alinsky’s “training manual” for community organizers, “Rules for Radicals,” states that community organizers are primarily agitators, who must "Fan the resentments of the people of a community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression - he must search out controversy and issues... An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontentment [sic].... He knows that values are relative.... Truth to him is relative and changing." [315]
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Obama Timeline Part II

NOTE: Considerable effort has gone into the research and creation of this timeline. The work is the intellectual property of the author and is fully protected by copyright law. Any re-posting or re-printing of this timeline without crediting the author ( or without the consent of the author is prohibited.

Alinsky’s “training manual” for community organizers, “Rules for Radicals,” states that community organizers are primarily agitators, who must "Fan the resentments of the people of a community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression - he must search out controversy and issues... An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontentment [sic].... He knows that values are relative.... Truth to him is relative and changing." [315]

Note that Alinsky’s work also influenced the creation of the “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” named after Columbia University professors Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their strategy involves taking action to force deliberate failure in society, to foster change toward socialism, by overloading the bureaucracy with impossible demands, lawsuits, holding officials to the extreme letter of the law, etc. The Cloward-Piven method is to push society into an economic collapse, thus forcing a fear and resentment of capitalism, making it easier to usher in socialism. The Cloward-Piven strategy is one of the tactics used by “community organizers” (e.g., storming welfare offices and violently demanding immediate action) to impose intentional strains on the system, and to force the hiring of more government workers than necessary to deal with their ever-increasing demands. [327]

Obama has probably already met William Ayers by this time, and likely still remains in contact with him. [259]

While at IAF, Obama reports to Gerald Kellman. Kellman is a follower of Alinsky, whose book “Rules for Radicals” was widely read by 1960s radicals, such as members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Weather Underground, and the youths who rioted at the 1968 Democrat Convention in Chicago. (Obama’s line about “the world as it is and the world as it should be,” which his future wife swooned over and which she repeated twice in her speech to the Democrat National Convention, comes from Chapter 2 of Alinsky’s book.) [20,33,352]

Obama is hired with $25,000 Kellman receives from the Woods Fund. Obama will later serve on the Woods Fund board, along with former Weather Underground domestic terrorist, Pentagon bomber, radical, leftist, communist, and fugitive from justice, William Ayers. [33,204]
Note that the Woods Fund was founded by the Woods family, which owned a coal business that was a major supplier of coal to Commonwealth Edison; the CEO of Commonwealth Edison was Thomas Ayers, father of William Ayers. [346]
Gerald Kellman later relates that Obama’s job “largely consisted of interviewing community members and creating a narrative out of their experiences, the problems the community faced.” [190]
As a community organizer, Obama, despite being a “master of agitation,” has limited success working for more welfare programs for the poor on the south side of Chicago. Obama is less a “community organizer” than a “community agitator,” getting people to demand more welfare benefits and government hand-outs. [35,47]

Obama also works on voter registration drives during this period, and comes into contact with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI); Obama is likely to have met Carl Davidson during this period; Davidson is a former member of the radical group Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), and later is a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), which organized the 2002 rally where Obama announces his public opposition to the looming Iraq War. [34]

Obama learns from the Alinsky crowd the method for getting people to support radical change they would ordinarily not be willing to accept. "They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future.” Thus, just as it has been the theme of most Democrat Presidential campaigns over the last 30 years, so is it Obama’s: “Everything is terrible and headed in the wrong direction, your lives are in shambles, greedy capitalism is at fault, and you need to trust a bigger government and my plans to solve all your problems.” [192]

For three years, Obama is the director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), part of the “Gamaliel Foundation,” another Alinsky-like group which uses “in your face” tactics and threats against banks to obtain more loans to people in poor neighborhoods. Gamaliel’s co-founder and executive director is Gregory Galluzzo, who served as a trainer and mentor during Obama’s community activist days in Chicago. [227,228,337]

Probably in 1987 or 1988, Obama joins the Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC); it’s pastor is Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator who preaches Marxism, black liberation theology (a Marxist version of Christianity that worships a white-hating black Jesus, and whose founder, James Cone, stated, “If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer and we had better kill him”), gives controversial sermons, supports communists in Cuba and Nicaragua, and who later says America deserved the 9/11 terrorist attacks and that America intentionally spread the AIDS virus to remain wealthy at the expense of poor Africans. (Some accounts state that Obama joins TUCC as late as 1992.) Note that joining the church requires swearing an oath of belief in its black liberation theology. Obama will eventually attempt to distance himself from Wright’s outrageous remarks which are, arguably, not crazy or unusual outbursts but expressions of standard Black Liberation Theology – which one may assume is why Obama joined the church in the first place. [33,268,324,336,688,745]
For what it calls a “commitment to truth, education, and leadership,” Obama’s church magazine, “Trumpet Newsmagazine,” gives a “lifetime achievement award” to Louis Farrakhan, a virulent anti-Semite whose quotes include, “Hitler was a very great man,”  “Judaism is a gutter religion,” and “white people are potential humans, they haven’t evolved yet.” Obama alleges that his church is “fairly conventional,” and that he “wasn’t in church” when Wright made his more inflammatory statements. [36,37,38,39]
Reverend Wright, along with Louis Farrakhan, visits Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi in 1984. Obama’s church presents Louis Farrakhan with its “Empowerment Award.” (References to that award are, in 2008, removed from the church’s web site after Obama’s relationships with Wright and Farrakhan are questioned.) [315]

Obama considers Wright to be his “moral compass,” “sounding board,” and “confidant.” Obama is likely an agnostic or perhaps an atheist, like his mother and father (or a “mystic” like his future avid supporter, Oprah Winfrey), but joins the church for “street cred,” probably to please his wife, and to end the flak he receives from people in the community for his lack of religion. [202,239,271,336]
Obama alleges that he was baptized at TUCC, but no one has been able to find records of the event. [336,564]
Lolo Soetoro, Obama’s step-father, dies of a “liver ailment” in 1987. [560]

1988 – 1991
In the spring of 1988 (possibly 1985 or 1986), Obama visits his family in Kenya. [40,329]
It is believed that Obama visited his mother, Ann Dunham, in Pakistan some time during 1987 and 1992, while she was working there. [329]

In the fall of 1988, Obama begins his studies at Harvard Law School; helping Obama gain acceptance at Harvard is a letter of recommendation from civil rights activist and Malcolm X attorney Percy Sutton; Sutton is asked to write the letter by Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour (aka “Donald Warden”), a radical Muslim and vitriolic anti-Semite, mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and acquaintance of Obama. Al-Mansour alleges in his 1995 book, “The Lost Books of Africa Rediscovered,” that the United States is plotting genocide against black Americans. (Mansour has called for a national “bloodbath” of white Americans, and has said that the black “killing and mutilating” of whites and Jews is part of God’s plan.)  Mansour is believed to have been the main financial backer and planner for Obama for as long as 25 years, and is a principle advisor to Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the world’s 19th wealthiest person ($29.5 billion), and nephew of Saudi Arabia’s King Adballah. (It is unclear why a financial advisor to one of the world’s richest men would have an interest in funding the education of the young Obama, whose grades at Occidental College had been less than stellar because he was more interested in drugs than studying.) [41,43,380,381,382,527,558]
Note that Alwaleed bin Talal also donated $20 million to Harvard to fund “Islamic Studies.” [380]

It has been suggested that it was William Ayers who persuaded Khalid al-Mansour to raise funds for Obama’s Harvard tuition. Ayers associated with al-Mansour when he was still known as Donald Warden. Warden was a lawyer and advisor to the Black Panther Party, whose offices were next door to Warden’s. Ayers, Warden, Dohrn, and others planned the overthrow of the United States at a marina in San Francisco, where Ayers, Dohrn, and other radicals were hiding from the authorities. [259,380]

A Harvard letter of recommendation for Obama is also written by John McKnight, who serves on the Gamaliel Foundation’s Board of Directors, as well as the board of National People’s Action (NPA), another group of Alinsky-inspired agitators that pickets homes of business leaders and politicians. The NPA consists of Alinskyite thugs and agitators who, when picketing the homes of business and government leaders to demand more benefits and hand-outs, sing: "Who's on your hit list, NPA? Who's on your hit list of today? Take no prisoner, take no names. Kick 'em in the ass when they play their games." [230,267]

It is unclear how Obama gets into Harvard Law School, which has exceptionally high admissions standards, with applicant LSAT scores expected in the 98 to 99 range, and a grade point average of 3.8 or higher. It is assumed that if Obama had such scores, his campaign would be bragging about them; it has not, and will not release his school records. One assumption is that Obama had connections, such as Khalid al-Mansour, who both paved his way and paid his way; al-Mansour’s friend Percy Sutton states that al-Mansour had been “raising money” for Obama. Obama denies knowing al-Mansour, but al-Mansour, in an interview with Newsmax reporter Kenneth Timmerman, admits he had spoken with Obama and told him he would keep a “low profile” in order to avoid embarrassing the candidate. [56,264,315]

It is also unclear how Obama paid for his education, especially his years at Harvard Law School. (Occidental College and Columbia are also far from cheap.) He appears not to have held any steady jobs during the period, and he also took several extensive and expensive trips overseas. (Obama doesn’t mention his Pakistan trip(s) in his books.) He and his wife later say they needed many years to pay off student loans, but those loans are not recorded on financial disclosure statements Obama was required to submit when he became a Senator.

Attorney Percy Sutton tells reporters in 2008, “I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him. The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour.” Gifts from al-Mansour may have funded Obama’s years at Harvard. In April of 2008, however, Obama’s wife states that Obama had “just paid off his loan debt” for his Harvard Law School education. That statement, however, is not consistent with a review of Obama’s financial disclosures, which go back to 2000 and which did not list any outstanding college loans. (As a candidate for the U.S. Senate, Obama was required, in 2004, to file a financial disclosure form detailing his assets, income, consulting contracts, and liabilities. Obama listed zero for liabilities in 2004 and in all subsequent U.S. Senate financial disclosure forms. [211]

If Obama’s school loans had been paid off earlier, then his wife’s statement that he “had just paid off his loan debt” was a lie; a pandering lie intended, no doubt, to make the two of them appear to be “just another struggling middle class family.” If the loans had, in fact, just been paid off, then the candidate lied on his financial disclosure forms, which could subject him to impeachment from the Senate.

Another possibility is that candidate Obama and his wife are both lying, and the school loans were actually gifts from Khalid al-Mansour, which were expected to be paid back with future political favors – such as promoting a Palestinian state at the expense of Israel. If Obama’s tuition and expenses were financed by others without any expectation of direct reimbursement, they were thus gifts that should have been listed on his income tax filings. Obama’s failure to do so would mean he violated income tax regulations and is subject to additional taxes, interest, and penalties - and perhaps criminal charges.

Obama is selected as one of 40 editors of the Harvard Law Review (HLR), but he apparently wrote only one article for the HLR, in which he argued against placing any limits on abortion, with the remarkable statement that abortions would “…prevent increasing numbers of children born into lives of pain and despair.” His fellow editors elect Obama President of the HLR, partly in response to the demands of Professor Derrick Bell that a black woman be appointed to the law faculty. [55,56,385]
While at Harvard, Obama is already planning his political career. Former Harvard classmate Christine Spurell states, "It was clear to me from the day I met him that he was thinking about politics.” [332]
While on a break from class at Harvard, Obama spends eight days in Los Angeles taking a national training course taught by Saul Alinsky's “Industrial Areas Foundation.” [47]

In 1989, Obama works briefly at the Sidley Austin LLP Law Firm, as a summer associate from Harvard law School, where he meets future wife Michelle LaVaughan Robinson; she is his mentor at the law firm. Also working at the firm is Bernadine Dohrn (1984-1988), former Weather Underground radical, terrorist bomber, fugitive from the FBI (having achieved “most wanted list” status), and wife of fellow radical William Ayers. (Although Dohrn works for the law firm, her criminal record prevents her from being admitted to the Illinois bar.) [50,55,324]
Obama’s summer job at Sidley Austin is likely arranged by William Ayers and Ayers’ father, Tom Ayers, (CEO of Commonwealth Edison, 1975-1986). [259]

In 1990, Obama serves as a summer associate at the law firm Hopkins and Sutter in Chicago. [357]

In 1990, Obama turns down a job offer from Antoin “Tony” Rezko’s low-income housing development company; this may have been one of Obama’s first contacts with Tony “the fixer” Rezko. Rezko, born in Aleppo, Syria, maintains varied contacts with Obama until he is convicted and jailed in 2008. It is not known how Obama first met Rezko. (Ayers, Obama, and Rezko have all dealt with the Broadway Bank in Chicago, run by the mob-tied Giannoulias family, and it may have been Ayers or a Giannoulias family member who brought Obama’s name to the attention of Rezko.) That first Obama-Rezko contact was initiated by David Brint, a Rezko partner (along with Daniel Mahru). [48,245,664]
Note that Rezko has been alleged by some to have had ties with the Syrian Mukhabarat, or Shu’bat al-Mukhabarat al-‘Askariyya (Department of Military Intelligence). [558]

In 1991 Obama receives his law degree from Harvard Law School. [55]

Obama returns to Chicago in 1991, where he is named the Illinois head of “Project Vote” (an affiliate of “ACORN,” a group infamous for its involvement in vote fraud), to help increase the number of black voters. Project Vote is required to remain non-partisan to retain its tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) organization under the IRS Code, but it adds an estimated 125,000 new voters in Illinois in 1992, mostly Democrats, to help Carol Moseley Braun win a United States Senate seat. [45,240,283]

In 1991, Michelle Robinson is hired by Valerie Jarrett to work for the City of Chicago, for $60,000 per year; Jarrett is rumored to be the likely chief of staff in an Obama Administration; she was born in Iran in 1956, to American parents, while her father was working there on the staff of the Nemazee hospital. It is said that Obama makes few major decisions without referring to Jarrett. [245,246,352,664]
Note that Valerie Jarrett is the daughter-in-law of the late Vernon Jarrett; Vernon Jarrett was a friend of Frank Marshall Davis, with whom he worked at the Chicago Defender, a leftist newspaper that advocated the radicalism of the Communist Party. Vernon Jarrett later became the Chicago Tribune’s first black syndicated columnist, and was a strong supporter of Chicago’s black mayor Harold Washington, who had defeated the “Daley machine’s” candidate with the help of Chicago’s Communist Party and the Democratic Socialists of America. Valerie Jarrett is CEO of Habitat Co., a company which managed Grove Parc Plaza, a 504-unit housing project in Chicago that fell into disrepair and is famous for its pathetic living conditions (collapsed roofs, unrepaired fire damage, rodents, and backed up sewage). Another even larger of Chicago’s subsidized housing complexes managed by Jarrett’s company was seized by the federal government in 2006 after widespread problems were identified. Note that Jarrett was CEO of Habitat at the same time she served as Chicago Mayor Daley’s planning commissioner, suggesting significant conflicts of interest. [478,479,480,545]

On December 17, 1991, Obama is admitted to Illinois Bar, enabling him to practice law. On his application he lies at least three times, failing to disclose that he had previously used the name “Barry Soetoro,” neglecting to disclose his record of drug use, and failing to disclose his approximate $400 in unpaid parking fines. [345]

In 1992 Obama marries Michelle LaVaughan Robinson. The ceremony is performed by Reverend Jeremiah Wright, at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. [329]

One of Obama’s tasks at ACORN, where he works with Madeline Talbott, is training “community activists” how to use “direct action” and be more forceful in demanding change. The “in your face” style is preached by Obama, and used by activists to stage sit-ins and demonstrations at banks to garner publicity and support for more bank loans for unqualified poor people. (ACORN stages a two-day sit-in at the House Banking Committee room in1991.) Tactics include picketing at the homes of bank executives and calling them racists for not lending to the poor. Among the banks targeted by Talbott and Obama is Chicago’s Bell Federal Savings (which no longer exists). The Chicago Tribune, in September of 1992, referred to the ACORN agenda as “affirmative action lending.” Critics later refer to those types of loans as “Ninja” loans (“No Income, No Job, no Assets”). [225,227,491]

Obama plans his first book, “Dreams From My Father.” He receives a $125,000 advance from publisher Simon and Shuster, but fails to write the book (which is supposed to be about race relations, not an autobiography). Obama travels with his wife to Bali to gain the “peace and quite” to write, but still produces no manuscript. The contract is canceled, and Obama is asked to return part of the advance payment he receives. Obama returns to Chicago, signs a new contract (with Times Book, a Random House Division) for $40,000, and subsequently delivers a completed manuscript. It is believed that “Dreams From My Father” was ghost-written by Obama’s friend, William Ayers, based on the startling similarities of Ayers’ writings and the Obama book, the fact that Obama’s only previous public writings were atrocious poetry he had written in college, and Obama’s inability to speak well when not reading from a script or off a teleprompter. (Some also argue that the later audio version of the book, recorded by Obama, comes across as unnatural, as though the words are not entirely his.) The book is a critical and financial dud – until Obama becomes famous and it is re-printed. [57,58,224,250]

In 1992, Obama helps found “Public Allies,” a voluntary public service organization (modeled after Alinsky’s AIF) that recruits youths to perform “public service” while they are indoctrinated in socialist ideology; Obama’s wife Michelle becomes the group’s Executive Director in 1993. The program is the model for candidate Obama’s “Universal Voluntary Public Service” program, which he stealthily promotes as an expansion of Kennedy’s “Peace Corps.” [51,52,461]

1993 – 1996
Obama is hired by Miner, Banhill and Galland, a law firm that specializes in making government deals to develop low-income housing, and which deals with Tony Rezko’s firm “Rezar.” Obama’s specific duties at the law firm are not known. (He refuses to provide a list of his clients.) Obama is also a law lecturer at the University of Chicago during these years. Obama likely remained on the payroll of the law firm until his 2004 Senate campaign, although his law license became inactive in 2002; he worked only during the summers after 1996. It is believed that Obama never actually tried a case in court; he worked on teams with other lawyers to draw up briefs and contracts. [42,53,245,324,345,420]
Note that Judson Miner had been a classmate of Bernadine Dohrn at the University of Chicago Law School in the late 1960s, when both were involved in anti-war activity. Miner had also been counsel to Chicago Mayor Harold Washington, and former Illinois Senator Carol Mosely Braun had worked briefly at the firm. Mr. Allison Davis, co-founder of the firm, later became a Chicago land developer, with ties to Tony Rezko. [345]
Note that Allison Davis has 51 per cent ownership in several Chicago real estate development businesses; because he is black, his ownership allows him to take advantage of laws favoring “minority ownership;” Davis is, however, a multimillionaire with no need for special minority treatment, and he is merely taking advantage of rules meant to help others. As a state senator, Obama steers millions in state development money to firms owned by Rezko and Davis. Some of the housing developments built by Davis are managed by a company owned by Davis’ son, Cullen Davis. [664]
In 1993, Obama is placed on the board of the Woods Fund by William Ayers. (The period Obama serves on the Woods Fund board may be 1997 to 2002; conflicting dates have been presented in the media.) [259,297]
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Obama Timeline Part III

NOTE: Considerable effort has gone into the research and creation of this timeline. The work is the intellectual property of the author and is fully protected by copyright law. Any re-posting or re-printing of this timeline without crediting the author ( or without the consent of the author is prohibited.

While on the Woods Fund board in 1993, Obama votes to approve a $1 million payment to the Neighborhood Rejuvenation Partners, a partnership run by Allison Davis; Davis is the founder of the law firm where Obama works, Miner, Banhill and Galland. [664]

In 1993, Obama runs leadership training sessions on the subject of “power” for ACORN leaders, and continues to do so until at least 2003. Obama also helps train the staff of high-ranking ACORN leader Madeline Talbott; Talbott is arrested for heading a protest confrontation at the Chicago City Council. [283]

About 1993 (possibly later), Obama buys a townhouse in Chicago, with a loan provided by the city’s Broadway Bank. His down payment is $110,000. The bank, owned by the politically-connected Giannoulias family, is alleged to have long-standing mob ties, as well as connections with Tony Rezko and William Ayers. Allegedly Obama gets a “sweetheart” deal on the townhouse, ostensibly in exchange for future favors. Obama later endorses Alexi Giannoulias when he runs for Illinois State Treasurer. [281,291,329]

Obama’s townhouse is allegedly purchased by or for him in 1993, but various names are listed as the owner and the payer of the property tax while Obama lives there. The Warranty Deed changes from the name of the prior owner, Stephen Anderson, to Obama, in 1993, but the release of the Anderson mortgage is not recorded until 1998, at which point it is sent to Obama’s former law firm. There may be reasonable explanations for the various names and events, or Cook County bookkeeping may be less than perfect, but the oddities (not all of which are listed here) may also be the result of a complicated real estate “deal” arranged for Obama. [291]

Sometime in 1993, Michelle Obama’s law license is suspended; it is unclear why. The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) reports her malpractice insurance status as “No malpractice report required as attorney is on court ordered inactive status.” Note that the ARDC is an agency of the Supreme Court of Illinois (not the Illinois Bar) which investigates attorney malpractice complaints. [677,738,739]

In 1994, Obama represents ACORN in a lawsuit against redlining. [225]

In 1994, Obama represents a client suing Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks, essentially forcing the bank to give loans to poor credit risks. [263,497,531]

In the fall of 1994, Obama’s mother becomes ill with ovarian cancer. [324]

In 1995 Obama’s first book, “Dreams From My Father,” is published. It sells only a few thousand copies and has to be remaindered; critics call it “overwrought” and “self-indulgent.” The book is re-published in 2004, with some changes, after Obama becomes famous, and it earns him a fortune. [57,58]

A 1995 article in the “Chicago Reader” describes how Obama had rejected the “…unrealistic politics of integrationist assimilation.” [264]

In 1995, Obama sues the State of Illinois on behalf of ACORN to get the state to comply with the federal “Motor Voter Law” law, which Republican Governor Jim Edgar correctly argues will invite voter fraud, partly because government officers registering new voters are “under orders not to ask anyone for identification or proof of citizenship.” ACORN has been prominent in the fight against photo I.D. for voting and other means of voter identification. ACORN specifically sought out Obama to represent them in the lawsuit (it was not simply assigned to him by a law firm). [54,240,255,284] 

In 1995, urged by Obama, the Woods Fund gives more money to “community organizer” groups like ACORN. The Woods Fund publicly lies about its ideology, which allows it to obtain donations from many who aren’t aware of its radical intentions. Obama’s committee’s own report even brags that its claim to be “…non-ideological has enabled the Trustees to make grants to organizations that use confrontational tactics against the business and government ‘establishments’ without undue risk of being criticized of partisanship.” During Obama’s tenure with the Woods Fund, the organization gives out more than $200,000 to ACORN. [232,297]

William Ayers (who may have met Obama as early as 1981) selects Obama as chairman (1995-2000) of the “Chicago Annenberg Challenge on Excellence in Education” (CAC), an educational reform program that proves to be remarkably unsuccessful. (A 2003 audit states, "There were no statistically significant differences between Annenberg schools and non-Annenberg schools in rates of achievement gain.”) Ayers and Obama approve grants of $175,000 and $482,662 to groups founded by Ayers and run by former communist party leader Mike Klonsky. Obama may have worked with the CAC as early as 1993. [59,60,61,155,156,201,204,428]

Note that for several years (at least until 1999 or 2000) the offices of the CAC are at 115 South Sangamon in Chicago. Bill Ayers’ “Small Schools Workshop” (of which Mike Klonsky is co-director) is also located at 115 South Sangamon. Both organizations are on the third floor. [366] 

Obama approves so many grants with CAC money that the “Chicago Reader” refers to Obama as a “philanthropist.” Obama’s time with the CAC is his only “executive experience.” While with the CAC, Obama and Ayers distribute an amount in the neighborhood of $100 million, and achieve essentially none of the group’s stated educational goals. [297,428]

It should be noted that the selection of Obama, a 33 year-old junior lawyer at a small law firm, as chairman of the educational reform group CAC is strange, inasmuch as the board also includes several older and experienced university presidents – one of whom, Stanley O. Ikenberry of the University of Illinois, later remarks, “It was unusual, here you had a person trained in the law chairing a board on school reform.” [65]

In 1995, Obama’s political career starts with a fundraiser at the home of Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn. Ayers and Dohrn are former 1960s radicals and former Weather Underground militants, who disappeared in 1970 after their bomb, designed to kill army officers in New Jersey, accidentally destroys a Greenwich Village townhouse; they eventually turn themselves in to authorities in 1980; but because of improper FBI surveillance Ayers and Dohrn are never prosecuted for their involvement in 25 bombings. [60,66,67,71]

Ayers and Dohrn (who has met with communists in Cuba and Viet Cong representatives in Budapest) are alleged to have been occasional baby-sitters for the Obama children. Obama falsely claims that the 1995 fundraiser is the first time he met William Ayers. [68,69,70,71,259]

The North Vietnamese have presented both Ayers and Dohrn with rings made with metal from an American plane shot down in North Viet Nam. [69]

An interesting side note: Ayers and Dohrn are the adoptive parents of Chesa Boudin, whose parents, David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin, are serving three consecutive 25 year prison terms for felony murder, having killed three Brinks guards in a 1981 robbery to get cash to fund their Weather Underground, SDS, Black Liberation Army, and Black Panther Party activities. Chesa Boudin was named a Rhodes Scholar, through the help of Dennis Hutchinson, a professor at the University of Chicago, where Ayers and Obama taught. [205]

In October of 1995, Obama attends the male-only “Million Man March,” organized by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. [284,286]

Obama successfully seeks the endorsement of the “New Party” (NP), a Marxist third party in Chicago, for his 1996 state senate run. The endorsement of the New Party requires that the candidate “…sign a contract with the NP. The contract mandates that they must have a visible and active relationship with the NP.” Obama receives the endorsement with an in-person appearance with the NP; it is not an unsolicited endorsement. After his victory in the election, the NP states that “Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.” [72,243,253,431]

Obama also receives the support of the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA); Obama was then (and may still be) an associate of the DSA’s Chicago branch. The members of the New Party, the DSA, and ACORN are, to a great extent, interchangeable. [239,243,253,432]

Obama is a panelist for a discussion, “Employment and Survival in Urban America,” sponsored by the DSA on February 25, 1996. [432]

The Marxist New Party refers to Obama as one of its own party members in an October, 1996 “Running to Win: The Key Races” announcement, that reads, “Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).” [244,422]

The “Progressive Populist” magazine runs an editorial that says, “New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago.” The New Party’s parent organization is the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA). The New Party’s short-term objective is to move the Democrat Party far to the left, helping establish the conditions for an eventual Marxist party. [253]

Obama’s state senate run also receives the support of Dr. Quentin Young, a neighbor of Obama’s and a long-time advocate of a single-payer, national health care system; Young is believed to be a member of the Communist Party of the USA, and had been active in Chicago socialist circles since the 1930s; in 1992 Young received from the Chicago Democratic Socialists its highest honor, the (Eugene) Debs Award; while in the Illinois State Senate, Obama supports Young’s single-payer health care program and introduces several bills in failed attempts to get it established. [73,74]

On November 7, 1995, Obama’s mother dies of ovarian cancer. Her body is cremated and there is no funeral. Involved with his State Senate campaign, Obama is not with her in her final days. Obama did not attend a memorial service for Dunham held at the University of Hawaii, but reportedly helped scatter her ashes in the ocean. (Obama rarely saw Dunham after 1975.) [324,560]

Note that although Ann Dunham allegedly died of cancer in Hawaii in 1995, researchers have not been bale to identify the hospital where she was treated. There are unconfirmed reports that Dunham’s Social Security Number, 535-40-8522, is purportedly still active and being used by “Kelly Ann Dunham” or “Anna Soetoro.” Even if the Social Security Administration reissued Dunham’s number after her death, how likely is it that it would have been assigned to someone with either of those names? (Note also that the first three digits, 535, are used for numbers assigned in the state of Washington.) [674,675,676]


In September of 1996, prior to the November election, Obama completes a candidate questionnaire. In the document, Obama states he supports increasing the personal exemption “as part of a shift to higher income tax,” supports increasing income taxes to reduce local property taxes, supports public campaign financing, favors adding sexual orientation to the (Illinois) Human Rights Act, opposes mandatory ADS testing for insurance or employment, favors “comparable worth” programs, supports the right of public employees to strike, supports a single-payer health plan for Illinois, supports Medicaid funding of abortions, supports parental abortion notification only for the very young (age 12-13), opposes all other abortion restrictions, supports cost-of-living adjustments for public aid recipients, supports “workfare” (only if coupled with government-funded training, child care, and health care), opposes restrictions on welfare benefits for teen mothers, opposes restrictions on benefits for women on welfare who have additional children, favors repealing the six-month limit on general assistance benefits, supports energy assistance for the poor, supports more tax money for the Chicago Transit Authority, opposes electronic eavesdropping, opposes capital punishment, opposes mandatory sentencing guidelines, opposes the manufacture, sale, and possession of handguns, and supports banning assault weapons. 

Obama is elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996; he takes the seat long held by Democrat State Senator Alice Palmer (also an official of the U.S. Peace Council, an affiliate of the World Peace Council, a Soviet front group), who agrees to let Obama run for her state seat only if she loses her bid for U.S. Congress; Palmer loses the Congressional primary, but Obama reneges on his agreement and works with lawyers to get Palmer and three other opponents removed from the primary ballot on technicalities, in order to insure his opponent-free victory. On January 2, 1996, a group of Obama operatives descends on the offices of the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners to challenge, one by one, all the signatures on the nominating petitions of all of Obama’s challengers; they do not stop until Obama is the sole name on the ballot. [75,269] 

The Congressional seat Alice Palmer had tried to win had been held by disgraced Congressman Mel (“I won the Lotto”) Reynolds, who resigned after allegations of sex with an underage campaign volunteer; Alice Palmer lost the primary to Jesse Jackson Jr. (Note: This explains some of the animosity between Obama and Jesse Jackson; had Jackson’s son not entered the Congressional race, Alice Palmer would have won the seat and Obama would not have had to resort to signature challenges to get Palmer off the State Senate ballot. The main animosity, of course, is that Obama may win the Presidency which Jackson failed to win because he was considered too “radical,” when, in fact, Obama is exponentially more radical than Jackson ever was.) [269]

With the Palmer petition signature challenges, Obama follows the practice preached by Davis and Alinsky (and Axelrod): don’t try to beat the opponents, remove them from the playing field entirely. Obama’s reliance on petition challenges runs counter to his self-made image of a reformer and crusader for voter’s rights. (Palmer will campaign for Hillary Clinton in 2008.) [75,329]

Timuel Black, a mutual friend, tries unsuccessfully to mend the rift between Obama and Palmer; Black is a long-time socialist, who associated with communists and Trotskyists in the 1930s, allegedly joined the Communist Party of the USA, was active in the Progressive Party, was president of the local chapter of the allegedly communist Negro American Labor Council, and was frequently involved with the annual Chicago Debs Day Dinners, an awards celebration for Illinois socialists. [74]

Obama’s campaign is alleged to have received financial assistance from the politically-connected Giannoulias family, possibly in exchange for future favors. (Obama will later support and endorse the young, inexperienced Alexi Giannoulias in his run for Illinois State Treasurer.) [281]

In January and February of 1997, renters of several Chicago slum tenements owned by Tony “the fixer” Rezko go without heat for five weeks; Rezko doesn’t come up with the money to turn on the heat, but manages to contribute $1,000 to Obama’s Illinois State Senate political campaign; Obama then seeks state funds for even more Rezko housing developments. (The Syrian-born Rezko can afford to travel widely in the Middle East, yet at one time has as many as 11 run-down and foreclosed properties in Obama’s State Senate District.) Obama continues to have associations with Rezko and other corrupt housing developers in Chicago; Obama gets state money for them and, in exchange, they contribute to his campaigns. Obama thus becomes, indirectly, one of the biggest slum-lords in Chicago. [76,238,527]

Note that the City of Chicago sued Rezko’s real estate development company, Rezmar, at least a dozen times during 1966-1997 to get heat turned on it its apartment buildings. [664]

In the Illinois State Senate, Obama introduces Senate Resolution 110, declaring November 1, 1997 “Islamic Community Day.” [347]

In 1997, Obama and Ayers appear together as speakers on several occasions; at the University of Chicago, their topic is, "Should a child ever be called a ‘super predator?’” The announcement of their November, 1997 appearance together states, “Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system.” [71,83,237]

In 1997, Obama endorses William Ayers’ book on juvenile justice, with an article praising it in the Chicago Tribune in which Obama calls the Ayers book a “searing and timely account of the juvenile court system.” Michelle Obama (who at this time is the University of Chicago’s dean of student services and director of the school’s Community Service Center) hosts a panel discussion of the book, in which both Obama and Ayers participate. In 2008, seeking to distance to Obama from Ayers, the campaign claims Obama did not “write a blurb for his book.” [77,84,279,333]

Ayers mentions Obama in his book, where he writes, “Our neighbors include Muhammad Ali, former mayor Eugene Sawyer, poets Gwendolyn Brooks and Elizabeth Alexander, and writer Barack Obama. Minister Louis Farrakhan lives a block from our home and adds, we think, a unique dimension to the idea of 'safe neighborhood watch': the Fruit of Islam, his security force, has an eye on things twenty-four-hours a day." In April of 2008, when Obama’s relationship with Ayers is brought up in a primary debate, Obama lies, saying he doesn’t know him well and that he is only “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.” [78,279,297,333]


In March, 1998, Obama delivers the eulogy at the funeral of Saul Mendelsen, a leader of Chicago’s far left and a socialist “community organizer” and activist. [79]

In October, 1998, Obama writes a letter supporting plans for low-income senior citizen housing. The project’s site, an empty lot owned by the city of Chicago, is sold to Obama’s friend Tony Rezko, and Obama’s former law-firm boss, Mr. Allison Davis, for one dollar. The project, “Cottage View Terrace,” eventually consumes $14.6 million in taxpayer dollars, with a substantial amount going to Rezko and Davis as development fees. Taxpayer funds are later given to Rezko for additional housing projects, despite the fact that some of his prior projects fell into significant disrepair. In 2007 and 2008, Obama says he “never did any favors” for Rezko. Obama’s former boss, Davis, donates more that $400,000 to dozens of political campaigns, including those of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and Obama. [80]

In 1998 Obama is re-elected to Illinois State Senate. 

In 1998, Obama’s daughter Malia Ann is born. 

Obama attends a speech given by Columbia University Professor Edward Said, who called for a non-violent campaign “against settlements, against Israeli apartheid.” [387] 

In 1999, Obama casts the only vote against Illinois Senate Bill 485, which makes felons convicted of sexual abuse crimes serve their full sentences without getting credit for time served in the county jail. [93]

Obama votes against a bill that specifically allows homeowners the right to use a gun in self-defense during a home invasion. The Illinois Governor vetoes the bill; Obama votes to uphold the veto. [315]

In 1999, Obama proposes increasing Illinois firearm and ammunition excise taxes by 500 percent. (For example, a $55 tax on a $500 rifle would increase to $330.) The tax would thus change from a fee to fund wildlife preservation programs into a gun-punishing penalty. [444]

Until 2002, Obama serves, with William Ayers, on the board of the Woods Fund, a liberal Chicago non-profit organization. Grants from the fund are given out to Reverend James T. Meeks (a fiery, anti-white and anti-Semitic Chicago preacher, in the style of Obama’s reverend Jeremiah Wright), and Father Michael Pfleger (perhaps best known encouraging his parishioners to buy time from prostitutes as a way of inviting the women to counseling and job training). [81]

The Woods Fund also gives money to ACORN, which registers voters in poor black neighborhoods, to garner additional support for Obama. Arguably, these actions by Obama and ACORN are illegal because, as an allegedly independent, apolitical, tax-exempt, non-profit group, ACORN cannot legally “pimp for Obama” - but that is essentially what it does in registering voters while drumming up support for the candidate who is financing its operations; its tax-exempt status is thus flagrantly violated by ACORN. [227]


In January of 2000, Obama and the controversial Father Michael L. Pfleger are involved in an ACORN demonstration protesting “payday loans.” [284]

In 2000, Obama enters the primary for U.S. Congress. In a television interview during the campaign, he cites as a qualification his experience with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the educational reform project on which he worked with William Ayers. (The project ends up wasting over $100 million, without accomplishing any of its stated goals.) [60,204]

To help finance his run for Congress, Obama secures a $20,000 personal loan. [332]

The Chicago scuttlebutt is that Obama’s 2000 campaign for Congress is funded by what some call the “Hyde Park mafia,” a group of University of Chicago leftists, and that there is a master plan to “push him up the political ladder.” [86]

Obama’s tone in the campaign comes off as condescending by many (“I gave up a career with a high-priced law firm to run for public office”), and he loses the primary to opponent Bobby Rush, who defeats him by 30 per cent; Rush describes Obama as an “elitist” who is not “black enough” to serve the district. Obama reviews the demographics of his loss and works with Democrat consultant John Corrigan to get the district’s borders re-drawn (“gerrymandered’) to favor his political goals; they establish a new district that is still heavily black, but which also includes liberal North Shore whites who would be more inclined to vote for Obama than Rush (a former member of the radical Black Panthers). [87,88,193]

In 2000, Obama campaign volunteer Kenny B. Smith donates $550 to Obama’s Illinois State Senate campaign; in 2001, Obama steers $100,000 in tax dollars to a newly-formed Smith organization to build a gazebo, “parrot sanctuary,” and “walk of fame” in a blighted Chicago neighborhood; by 2008 only the gazebo has been built, the neighborhood is still blighted, and there is no sign of the rest of the $100,000. [89]

In 2000, Rashid Khalidi, a former PLO operative who justified Palestinian terrorism as contributing to "political enlightenment," hosts a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi taught at a university in Beirut in the 1970s, and spoke to reporters on behalf of Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Organization. From 1976 to1982, Khalidi was reportedly director of the Palestinian press agency, Wikalat-al-Anba al-Filastinija (WAFA), which was operating in exile from Beirut with the PLO. In the 1990s, Khalidi advised the Palestinian delegation during peace negotiations; he is currently a professor of Arab studies at Columbia University. Khalidi also taught at the University of Chicago, lived near the Obamas in Hyde Park, and was their friend and frequent dinner companion. [384,387,395,416,521]

Obama reported income from speaking fees on his 2000 and 2002 tax returns. It is illegal for Illinois State Legislators to accept fees for speeches; he was thus in violation of Illinois law both those years. [394]

In 2001, Obama’s daughter Sasha is born.

In 2001, Obama votes against Illinois House Bill 1812, a law designed to toughen penalties for crimes committed in furtherance of organized gang activities. [92]

In 2001, Obama votes against a bill that would allow people who receive protective orders (such as domestic violence victims) to carry firearms. When the bill fails, Obama remarks, "…authorizing potential victims to carry firearms would potentially lead to a more dangerous rather than less dangerous situation; it was a bad idea and I'm glad it failed.” [444]

While Obama serves on the board of the Woods Fund, it approves (in 2001) a $40,000 grant to the “Arab American Action Network” (AAAN); a second grant, for $35,000, is approved in 2002. President of the AAAN is Mona Khalidi, wife of Rashid Khalidi, a professor Obama met while at Columbia University. Khalidi, a former spokesman for Yassir Arafat, anti-Semite, strong critic of Israel, and supporter of Palestinian terrorism and the PLO, later holds fundraisers for candidate Obama. AAAN calls the founding of Israel a “catastrophe,” supports liberal immigration reform in the United States, and encourages giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens. [85,395]

Serving on the board of the AAAN is Ali Abunimah, a Palestinian-American, anti-Semite, co-founder of “Electronic Intifada,” and long-time friend of Obama. Abunimah refers to Jews as malicious liars, and even suggests they lied about the Holocaust, writing, “if Zionists could lie about their present and ongoing torment of my (Palestinian) people, usurpation of my homeland and arrogation of my rights, and they do it rather obscenely, couldn't they likewise lie, equally obscenely, about the holocaust, an event that took place over half a century ago?" [335]

Other groups receiving money from the Woods Fund include the voter-registration group ACORN (which has been highly criticized for thousands of questionable and illegal registrations), Bernadine Dohrn’s “Children and Family Justice Center,” and Trinity United Church of Christ (Obama’s church, and home of Reverend Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright). [62,63,64,82]

In 2001, Obama gives a radio interview to Chicago station WBEZ-FM, in which he discusses the “redistribution of wealth” from whites to blacks. Obama remarks, “…and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil rights movement was, because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and, and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And, uh, in some ways we still suffer from that.” He continued, “I’m not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. The institution just isn’t structured that way.” (Obama is not opposed to the redistribution of wealth, he merely feels the courts shouldn’t be the institution forcing it.) “You can craft theoretical justifications for it legally.” (After Fox News broadcasts the interview in October of 2008, the Obama campaign cries foul, charging Fox with creating a “fake news controversy.” [383,386,396]

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Obama writes, in a “blame America” op-ed piece in the Hyde Park Herald, that the essence of the tragedy “derives from the fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others,” that the terrorist attackers “lacked empathy,” and their attitude “…grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.” [90]

In August of 2001, William Ayers is photographed trampling on the American Flag, for a cover article in the “Chicago Magazine” titled “No Regrets.” (Note: the magazine is very popular in Chicago and is prominently displayed on newsstands throughout the city; Obama would have had a difficult time not seeing the magazine cover.)  [279]

In a September 11, 2001 article in the New York Times, William Ayers is quoted as saying, “I don’t regret setting bombs… I feel we didn’t do enough.” At the time Ayers makes that statement, he and Obama are serving together on the Board of the Woods Fund. [279] 

At least six of the 19 terrorists involved in the attacks of September 11 are illegally registered to vote in the United States, partly because of ACORN’s activities in spreading “motor voter” laws. [240]

In 2001, Obama introduces Senate Bill 750, the “Halal Food Act,” which requires the Department of Agriculture to conduct inspections to insure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law. [348]

Obama opposes a bill that defines as a “person” a fully born baby who survives an abortion. [346]

Obama votes “present” on legislation that would require doctors to give medical attention to babies who survive abortions.  Obama argues that defining “…a pre-viable fetus" that survived an abortion as a "person" or "child would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute." Testifying in favor of the law is an Illinois nurse, Jill Stanek, who had witnessed infants being left to die by abortionists, and who later writes, “Obama articulately worried that legislation protecting live aborted babies might infringe on women's rights or abortionists' rights. Obama's clinical discourse, his lack of mercy, shocked me.” [346,412]


Obama is re-elected to Illinois State Senate, with no opponent on the ballot.

In 2002, Obama, as an Illinois legislator, votes against the “Induced Infant Liability Act,” a law meant to protect the lives of babies who “inadvertently” survive attempted abortions and then need medical attention to survive; Obama’s is the sole vote against the bill, and a similar bill later passes unanimously in the United States Senate. This vote is consistent with the Alinsky philosophy (in “Rules for Radicals”) that “…all values are relative in a world of political relativity.” [91,272]

Obama votes against an Illinois bill banning state funding of late term abortions.

Obama is the only Illinois State Senator to vote against a bill that prohibits early release for sexual predators. Obama votes to make a criminal out of a homeowner who used a gun in his own defense in his own home. Obama refuses to vote for a bill in the Illinois State Senate that would increase penalties for drug traffickers. Obama votes against making it a criminal offense for convicts on probation or on bail to have contact with a street gang. Obama votes against a bill that imposes the death penalty to gang members who murder first responders (paramedics, firemen, police officers). [346]

In 2002, Ayers and Obama appear together at the University of Illinois for a discussion called, “Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?" [94]

During the course of his Illinois State Senate career, Obama votes “present” at least 130 times, in an effort to avoid being pinned down on issues that might later be used against him by an opponent in a campaign. [95,96]

Obama is the sole “present” vote on a bill to allow victims of sexual crimes to petition judges to seal court records to protect their privacy. All other State Senators (Democrats and Republicans alike) vote in favor of the bill. [328]

While a State Senator, Obama votes for a bill that would ban most hunting rifles, shotguns, and target rifles; the bill would also authorize the Illinois State Police to raid homes and forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama also votes for a bill that would shut down Illinois firearm manufacturing businesses (Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms, and Les Baer). Obama votes for a bill prohibiting Illinois citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month (S 2579). [326,445]

Obama votes four times during his Illinois State Senate career against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of his home and family. To avoid criticism of his anti-gun agenda, Obama enlists an organization known as the “American Hunters and Shooters Association” (AHSA) to distribute literature stating that he is “pro-Second Amendment;” the AHSA supports hunting, but also supports strict gun controls on non-hunters. (The AHSA is known to be a “sham” organization set up solely to endorse leftists who need political cover for their anti-gun leanings.) [326,353]

Democrats take control of the Illinois Senate after the November 2002 election. Essentially non-productive during his previous years in the State Senate, Obama persuades Senate President Emil Jones to “steer bills” his way in 2003 so he can make a name for himself; Democrat colleagues in the Illinois State Senate are critical of Obama’s legislative tactics in getting credit for bills he had virtually nothing to do with; State Senator Ricky Hendon says, “No one wants to carry the ball 99 yards all the way to the one-yard line, and then give it to the half-back who gets all the credit and the stats in the record book.”  (Hendon is the original sponsor of racial profiling and videotaped confession legislation; Jones takes it away from Hendon to give to Obama so Obama can put his name on it as his.) Once in the U.S. Senate, Obama repays Jones with tens of millions of dollars in federal spending for his district, which Jones glibly refers to as “steak” rather than “pork.” [98,99,239,292]

With a slew of Jones-fed legislation now under his belt and “substance” for him to run on, Obama starts working on his plans to enter the 2004 U.S. Senate race; aiding him is longtime Chicago political pro David Axelrod.

In 2003, Tony Rezko arranges a fundraiser for Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign. [245]

The Illinois State Archives never receives any request from Obama to archive any records in his possession, suggesting it was his intention to personally retain details of his work and not make records public. [346]

During Obama’s seven year Illinois State Senate career he works, on average, less than two days per week, has virtually no accomplishments during his first six years, and then gets 26 bills passed in his final year – with the help of Senate President Emil Jones, who has Obama’s name placed on bills that others wrote. [346]
