The Gospel Truth

Welcome to Barry’s World | October 3, 2011

It’s funny the more I write about President Obama the less I feel I understand him.

He is as elusive as a slippery eel.

Hard to fathom

The harder one tries to get a grip on his essence, the more he seems to slip out of your understanding.

And we thought Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon were difficult to fathom!

Part of the problem is that in Barry’s World, things that are real have become twisted, and unreal.

While today it might be difficult to define just what a normal childhood is, by any standard, even the most loyal Obama supporter must admit that the president has endured an unorthodox childhood and early adulthood.

We can see him but for us to get close and personal with his mind and his psyche is nearly impossible.

The mainstream press had little or no curiosity about his former life and merely accepted his media releases as the gospel truth.

Only Hillary Clinton took any interest in his background and was the first camp to raise the issue of his national origins and eligibility to become president.

Obama’s life is like a multi-colored mosaic made up of thousands of pieces that have been collected from around the world–Kenya, Indonesia, Hawaii, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Washington,D. C.

I often wonder what must go on in his mind?

Why is there so much doubt about his native and biological origins?

Has the public’s lack of understanding been a plot derived by him or his parents to confuse us or just make him seem so mysterious?

As a racially mixed child, what kind of internal doubts and confusions must have raged within his slight body?

His alleged father, Barack Senior abandoned his family right after Barack was born.

Fled to Seattle right after Barack's birth

Or was it the other way around?  His mother literally fled Hawaii to pursue her education in Seattle two weeks after Barack was born.

When they returned, Barack Senior could have matriculated with a full ride at the University of Hawaii but instead decided the allure of a Harvard Ph.D. was more important than heart or hearth.

Or maybe he didn’t have any real connection to Ann Dunham and her baby.

No one has ever seen any wedding pictures, nor a marriage license.

What must it been like growing up as a racially mixed child in Hawaii?

Of course most people in Hawaii are of  mixed parentage but usually between the many ethnic groups in Asia, not Africa.

Throughout his formative years he was just Barry–his Caucasian name.  Many thought of him as a white teenage with a white mother and white grandparents.

Barry, aka "Barack"

His grades were not outstanding and neither was his jump shot.

The most potent influence in his life quite possibly could have been, the man he identifies, simply as Frank in his memoirs.

I wonder how few people realize that this Frank was none other than Frank Marshall Davis who mentored him for 11 years.

Many people think that Frank was much more than a mentor.

Perhaps he was Barry’s biological father.  The resemblance between the two is uncanny.

Barry was chubby as a prepubescent child and makes the resemblance even more  dramatic.

Only his nasty smoking habit helped him take the weight off later.

Barack Sr. on the other hand looks nothing like Barry.

Perhaps that’s the real reason Barry’s birth certificate confusion has existed.  On the 1961 form I believe the blood type would be mentioned.  A simple test might have determined that Barack Sr. could not have been his father and Frank was.

A family tree?

I guess we will never know.  Frank is long dead and Barry isn’t talking.

Davis, for those who have been sleeping off the 1960s, was a self-admitted communist, whose disdain and overt hatred of America was notorious.

Like his protegé, he didn’t like American exceptionalism and thought this country had done nothing but oppress his people.

Besides being a communist polemicist, he dabbled in pornography.  His most memorable book was the Sex Rebel: The Memoirs of a Gash Gourmet, written under the pseudnym, Bob Greene.

The book’s protagonist lustfully pursued women of all ages, including a 13 year-old girl, named Ann.

Sex rebel: black;: Memoirs of a gash gourmet

Based on his life?

Rumors have since appeared that Marshall and his wife engaged in a menage a’ trois with the adolescent.

Marshall later admitted or boasted that the events in the book were based on his real experiences.

It was Frank who suggested that Barry attend Occidental College in Los Angeles because it boasted one of the most radical faculties in the country.

Those years Obama still remain a clouded with the vapor of smoke and who knows what else.

As Stanley Kurtz has thoroughly documented in his book, The Radical-in-chief, it was at Columbia where Barry made his ideological bones.

After Columbia it was on to Harvard and an undistinguished tenure as the editor of the prestigious Law Review.

With his law degree in hand, Barry, who was using the name Barack by then, moved on to Chicago where he was literally embraced by the country’s foremost radical, Bill Ayers and his Weatherwoman-wife, Bernadette Dohrn.

Author Jack Cashiel makes a convincing case that it was Ayers who ghosted Obama’s first book, Dreams from my Father.


A ghost-writer in the Chicago sky?

Chicago is also the location where he feasted on the radical wisdom of atheist Saul Alinsky, and his book Rules for Radicals, with regard to marshalling the powers of the mob into political action.

Alinsky dedicated his bestseller  to Lucifer, the world’s first great radical.

First great radical!

Alinsky’s thinking is the compendium to Machiavelli whose historic Prince taught rich and powerful people how to maintain their power.

Alinsky’s philosophy was the flip side.

It instructed the poor on how to take their power away and give it to a new elite.

Is this just another way of saying redistribute income by taxing the rich?

All these ideas and life experience inhabited the world of Barry’s mind.

They have had 50 years to germinate, multiply and produce a worldview that is counter to anything that has inhabited our seat of power.

Not since Henry Wallace who was only a few months away from being the president of the United States has anyone been so out of touch with America’s reality.

What do I mean by that?

Many of you will find the following bullet points instructive in how to succinctly debate, argue and expose the mysteries of what our president has been trying to do these past three years.

Kurtz’s Radical-in-chief concludes with the line:  Barack Obama is a socialist.

By its very nature, socialism is a fantasy, founded on the Utopian lie that equality of result can ever be established in the world.

There will always be wealthy people, poor people and people who work hard and those who take the easy way out.

The only way to do this is to penalize the producers and elevate the non-producers, who then become dependents of the government.

As a result socialism kills a person’s incentive to better himself and his condition and those of his family.

This has a leveling effect that leads invariably to slavery or serfdom.

In a nutshell socialism is the system where an elite in the name of total equality, dictates how the many may live.

The road we are taking?

Welcome to Barry’s world!



  1. Barry is a socialist and that is why so many Catholic priests fawn all over him without worrying about abortion.

  3. For Mary:

    We live in a world that is non-judgmental. You have bucked that with yourv strong comment about our feckless president. I am just glad that he doesn’t have any more feck. My big complaint about Republicans is that they are too kind and concede that the other side has “good intentions.” Oh, really—murder 50 million American babies out of good intentions. I would hate to see what happened if they had bad intentions. Keep bringing it on!!!

  4. For JB:

    I am writing an article for the Mindzenty Report on the invasion of Socialism into our Church. I call it “Blowin’ In the Win,” a Bob Dylan classic that was inspired by the CR Movement of the sixties. many of our priests and bishops made their bones during that time. It replaced the labor unions as the casus celebre’. It has perverted their good judgment to the extent that they still see the Democratic Party as the purveyor of that lost spirit.

  5. Thank Democrats, especially McCaskill. They continue to Deconstruct the US in favor of Socialism.
    Hitler,Mao and Stalin started out as Deconstructing” their Countries and destroying Christianity.
    Hundreds of millions of men,women and children where destroyed so Socialists can rule.
    It could happen in the US, either by Socalists or religious fanatics.
