Subscribe to Barack Obama - Fact or Fiction by Email
Below is an excerpt from an article I wrote earlier this month. Listed below are some of Obama’s family members, on the side of his family he ‘relates’ to most:
Obama’s polygamous father married three or four times, of which I know only two ended in divorce. Three marriages are listed below. Obama Sr. fathered at least eight, maybe nine children, one of which (George) was with a mistress.
1st wife, Kezia, whom he married in 1957, she was 16 yrs old when he bought her for 14 cows. She is the mother of Roy, born Mar 1958 (now known as Abongo); Malik, Bernard, Abo, and Auma. (There is question to the paternity of Abo and Bernard, according to Barack)
2nd wife, Ann, the Atheist, was born Nov. 27, 1942; whom he married Feb. 2, 1961, when she was eighteen. She was the mother of Sen. Barack Obama, Jr. who was born Aug 4, 1961, supposedly in Hawaii. Obama Sr was still married to Kezia. Ann, who’s real first name was Stanley, divorce Obama Sr in 1963. The significance of these dates should not go unmentioned, as Ann was only seventeen yearsold when Sen. Obama was conceived.
3rd wife, Teacher, Ruth Nidesand, whom he took to Kenya and introduced to co-wife Kezia – Ruth is the mother of Mark & David. David was killed in a motorcycle accident in 1987, and Mark is in China, to my understanding.
His 8th (or 9th?) child is George – Obama, Sr planned to marry George’s mother, at the time of his death.
I’ve also heard of a Sadik, can anyone confirm this child is one of Obama Sr’s children?
Half brother to Obama, Mark, seems to be the only one with his head screwed on, at least, halfway right. While described as looking a lot like Barack, he is quite different in his beliefs; here are some excerpts from Obama’s book (pp. 341-345):
“‘So, Mark,’ I said, turning to my brother, ‘I hear you’re at Berkeley.’
“‘Stanford,’ he corrected. His voice was deep, his accent perfectly American. ‘I’m in my last year of the physics program there.'”
They meet once more, for lunch:
“I asked him how it felt being back for the summer.
“‘Fine,’ he said. ‘It’s nice to see my mom and dad, of course. … As for the rest of Kenya, I don’t feel much of an attachment. Just another poor African country.’
“Mark put down his knife and fork, and for the first time that afternoon his eyes looked straight into mine.
“‘I understand what you’re getting at,’ he said flatly. ‘You think that somehow I’m cut off from my roots, that sort of thing.’ He wiped his mouth and dropped the napkin onto his plate. ‘Well, you’re right. At a certain point, I made a decision not think about who my real father was. He was dead to me even when he was still alive. I knew that he was a drunk and showed no concern for his wife or children. That was enough.’
Unlike Barack, Mark didn’t worship or idolize his biological father, but viewed him in the light of reality, for the sorry excuse of a human being that he was.
Then there’s Raila Odinga, Barack’s cousin, who was the leader of the violent uprising against the (newly elected) Kenyan government. Odinga, signed a memorandum of understanding with Kenyan Muslims, to turn Kenya into an Islamic state, governed by Sharia Law.
These are just a few of the people Senator Obama looks up to, but they are representative, of all the people with whom he surrounds himself. Could this country survive four years with this man at the helm? I think yes – but at what price?
