Figures. Obama Used to Tell Classmates He Was Kenyan Royalty


In this Obama Family photo are: (bottom row, from left) half-sister Auma, her mother Kezia Obama, Obama’s step-grandmother Sarah Hussein Onyango Obama and unknown; (top row, from left) unknown, Barack Obama, half-brother Abongo (Roy) Obama, and three unknowns.

It figures. Obama used to tell classmates he was a Kenyan royalty or an Indonesian prince.
Frontline reported, via Weasel Zippers:

PBS’s ‘FRONTLINE’ interviewed former Barack Obama classmate, Kristen Caldwell. She grew up and attended Punahou School with “Barry” Obama. She recalls how as a young child, Obama alternatively told classmates he was an Indonesian prince or Kenyan royalty.

So what do we know about Obama and his background? He wasn’t rich. Would he have needed help? How did he fit into this –

Kristen Caldwell – My understanding is that Barry — and that’s what we called him, so I’m not meaning to be disrespectful, but I’m going likely to refer to him as Barry for the most part. My understanding is that Barry was on a scholarship. And a lot of times if you’re on scholarship you had to do some work at the school. You worked in the snack bar.

My father told me — and I didn’t know it at the time — that Barry did some work at the tennis courts. We all did work at the tennis courts, those of us who hung out there. So it wasn’t unusual when the tennis pro would ask me, “Go and walk courts 1 and 2,” and that sort of thing, because he would ask any of us to do that. So I wasn’t aware of that.

    This may be the only truth he’s ever told. Kenyan Royal Pain in the Ass.

    So, the idea stuck in Obama’s head that he is His Royal Highness rather than Mr. President and entitled to all the perks & deference HRH can claim is nothing new . . . that explains a lot.

  • snap boy

    First of all, Barry was far from poor. His grandmother was a vice president of a bank and when she died six, eight years ago she had enough of an estate to leave Barry $500,000 (and one assumes an equal amount to his sister).
    As for the unknowns in the photo, my bet is the unknown woman on the right, bottom row, is Aunt Zeituni and the man upper row left is Uncle Omar – both illegal immigrants living off the taxpayers of MA.

    It goes deeper than that.

    Click here to see Musa Obama’s extremely revealing interview.

    While Obama’s connection to his Muslim family in Kenya is an acceptable topic for discussion in the Arab world, it is viewed as a ‘great taboo’ in the United States.

    Why is that so? This ‘taboo’ should be considered unfair at best, purely prejudiced at worst. Is it fair that we censor such discussions just because Obama’s relatives are ‘Muslim’?

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) should condemn the media for keeping a tight lid on the subject. Isn’t it time to go beyond what is disclosed by President Obama in his Dreams from My Father or Wikipedia’s limited information, which includes the only photo released by the Obama family?’…

    It is somewhere in Obama’s book. When he was growing up he believed it, until he learned who his father really was. A drunk and small weak bureaucrat.

    In Dinesh D’Souza book and maybe the movie 2016. Dinesh find all about senor Obama and he would impersonate the Kenya ambassador at events where the real ambassador would be at. When Obama junior found out who his real father was and not the one his mother told him he made it his mission in life to finish the unfinished dream that his father had until he was crushed by what little Capitalism in Kenya. Or something like that.

    Meeting Young Obama

    [I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.]

    Michelle Hints at Political Future Beyond Barack

    Today, First Lady Michelle Obama finally came to her husband’s defense over his abysmal presidential debate performance last week. “You know, I’m biased, but I think my husband has done a phenomenal job, not just in the debates but over these last three and a half years, and I continue to be in awe of how poised and consistent and honest he is,” Michelle said in Virginia. “It’s like when we were on ‘The View’ … I’m literally sitting there listening to him just lay out things in a conversational way, and I’m thinking, he’s right! This is where we need to go.”

    Michelle’s perspective may be Obama’s problem. A presidential debate is not like “The View.” It requires him to know his stuff, rather than to self-perceive as “eye candy.”

    She went on to talk about how she would campaign herself for abortion if her husband were defeated. “It is the rare instance where we take a deep dive backwards, where rights and freedoms are allowed to be taken away,” said the First Lady. “I just don’t believe women will not fight tooth and nail to make sure that we continue to progress. I’m not going let it happen, whether I’m [First Lady] or not.”

    This is Michelle Obama’s first hint at a life in politics beyond her husband’s presidency. It will certainly not be the last.

    1700 B.C.: ‘Alla’ god of ‘violence and revolution’

    [He said it appears “Alla” “is an ancestral deity who was worshiped in
    Mesopotamia.” The writings from the time talk about Allah’s death, he
    explained.

    “By the testimony of the Sumerians, it is clear that this Alla, or
    Tammuz, was once an infamous king of Erech, to only be defied
    by the superstitious masses of Mesopotamia.”

    they said the same about the name Hussein, ergo, i call crap!!

    it’s Obama who refuses to discuss anything “Muslim”.. and “CAIR” is the
    first to scream “ISLAMOPHOBIA” should any questions be asked about
    Islam..

    ….(by any other factual or fictional names)….

    my bottom line:

    the who, what, where, when, why, or how of Obama is totally
    irrelevant, what is extremely relevant is what this person has
    done, is still doing, and will continue to do to America, period..

    Obama Family Behind Shariah Push

    On right, director of Umm Al-Qura University, Bakri bin Ma’touk A’sas; on couch Musa Ismail Obama (left) and Sayid Obama (right)

    Excerpted from WND: Since his inauguration, President Obama’s family in Kenya has been on a mission to use the Obama name to transform Kenya from the nation’s current Christian majority to an Islamic majority that will spread Islamic law, or Shariah, through the country. Arab researchers Walid and Theodore Shoebat have documented the claims in a special report that translates an explosive television interview never before seen in the West.

    In the interview, Musa Ismail Obama, President Obama’s first cousin in Kenya, told the Arabic-language satellite TV network Al-Jazeera that the Saudi Arabian royal family has developed a strong relationship with the Obama family in their home village of Kogelo in Alego, Siaya District, West Kenya.

    Musa took pains to explain the need to proselytize Islam in Kenya, which is in line with the desire of wealthy Saudis to transform Kenya into a majority Muslim country.

    Walid Shoebat pointed out that an article in the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Arab acknowledged the importance of the Obama name to the efforts of the Kenya family to expand the position of Islam in the country. Shoebat noted the article describes President Obama as a Muslim, referring to “President Obama’s Islamic faith.”

    James Taranto put it best in his most excellent WSJ article, “Not the Man He Thought He Knew“:

    …when Obama wrote an autobiography, its focus was not on the women who were present in his life but on the man who was absent, and about whom he constructed an elaborate fantasy.

    ‘Nuff said.

  • traitors! cowards!

    He did not protect Americans he protected the enemy. Sends them money! He did nothing when for the border agents being shot (own weapons!), the FT Hood 13 slaughter, shuts down Polands defense shields! Now he does nothing to protect 9/11 embassies and then he doesn’t protect our soldiers! 4 good men dead!!! dead! Raped and tortured!! And he says we are sorry?? No ammunition or allowed to fire back???? The seal six team slaughtered!

    I am outraged & disgusted with the way the Commander in Chief treats Americans!!!!!!!!!!!!
