Updated note from author:

This entry was first published in March 2008, and I have received a steady stream of messages from enraged Obama supporters ever since. At times I have felt threatened or stalked by them. I have been called a racist, a republican, a troll, a traitor, and much worse. However, I am re-publishing this entry now because I STILL maintain that the mainstream media has failed to adequately examine the life, background, and experience of the next potential President of the U.S.

All of the questions raised herein should be fair game for a presidential candidate. Some of these questions have been examined by the occasional reporter; others have been covered more widely; still others have been neglected. Obviously this report could be filled out and updated, now that more information has surfaced about Obama’s associations. If anything, there are now more unanswered questions than there were before, and the list of problematic friends has grown.

Who is Barack Obama?What are his Kenyan loyalties:

I keep coming across this question in one form or another. And I don’t think it’s throwing flames to ask. It’s our duty to dig deep, right? After all, he could be our country’s next president, leader of the free world. And, it’s imperative that we Democrats nominate the most electable candidate to do battle with war hero and patriot John McCain this November.

So do we know Barack Obama?

His life should be an open book, god knows Hillary’s is. Why are we afraid to do the research? Will we be called racist or un-Democratic or otherwise blasphemous if we ask provocative questions? When it comes to interviewing our presidential candidates, should any query be off limits? Is Barack Obama entitled to a private past?

Dual Citizenship?

Many have speculated that Barack might have dual citizenship because his father was Kenyan and Barack lived in Indonesia:
Obama was born on August 4th, 1961 - before Kenya became an independent nation. However, when Kenya became independent two years later (its constitution) … provided: any person who, having been born outside Kenya, if his father becomes…a citizen of Kenya (the child also) becomes a citizen of Kenya.. (Thus) it’s quite possible that Obama acquired Kenyan Citizenship at birth.

Security clearances and other applications:

It’s not clear whether dual citizenship is disqualifying for the presidency. However, the State Department considers it a factor when granting security clearances for access to classified information. A past history of drug use is also relevant:

The (security) clearance process considers such factors as…violations of the law; drug or alcohol abuse…extensive travel…residence and/or employment overseas…dual citizenship…foreign contacts…family or relatives who are not citizens of the United States… Source.

( The Illinois Board of Admissions to the Bar also requires disclosure of past drug use and unlawful behavior. Did Obama provide complete answers on his Bar application?)

Allegiance is also a State Department requirement:

If there is any doubt about unquestioned preference for and allegiance to the United States, unencumbered by any undue foreign influence, DS must…determine that individual ineligible for access.

Decisions regarding eligibility for access to classified information take into account factors that could cause a conflict of interest and place a person in the position of having to choose between his or her commitment to the United States, including the commitment to protect classified information, and any other compelling loyalty.

Socialist mentors:Starting with his father….

If there is a mystery at the heart of Barack Obama’s Dreams From My Father, one thing is not left a mystery, the fact that Barack Obama organized his life on the ideals given to him by his Kenyan father. Obama tells us, “All of my life, I carried a single image of my father, one that I .. tried to take as my own.”

So we know that his father’s ideals were a driving force in his life, but the one thing that Obama does not give us are the contents of those ideals. ..A bit of research…reveals the answers about Barack Obama’s father and his father’s convictions which Obama withholds from his readers….(he was). a Harvard trained economist (who) attacked the economic proposals of pro-Western ‘third way” leader Tom Mboya from the socialist left, siding with communist-allied leader Oginga Odinga.

Another Marxist mentor:

In his biography of Barack Obama, David Mendell writes about Obama’s life as a “secret smoker” and how he “went to great lengths to conceal the habit.” But what about Obama’s secret political life? It turns out that Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist.

Through Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA)…Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where…he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just “Frank.”

A brief review suggests that it’s possible, especially given that Obama’s step-father was an Indonesian government official, that Obama might have taken Indonesian nationality. Source.

He is the tabula rasa, and it is this fact that is key to why he is the perfect candidate for the left, and why they are projecting their messianic hopes on him.
