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.

    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?’…

    Does he have a Pee-Paw or an Aunt Bee with high cheek bones? It is the new identity reality! If you think you’re a Prince, well whose to say you ain’t!

    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.


    Question to Robert Fibbs: “Has the President ever had a mailing address in Connecticut?”
    Easy question to answer, right?

    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.]
