In a nation divided almost evenly between conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats, many Americans were upset by the election of Barack Hussein Obama, a senator from Illinois, to the office of president of the United States. Since he took office in 2009, President Obama has been subjected to many theories as to why he is unfit for office, from the “Birthers,” who claim he was not actually born in the United States, something which is required by the U.S. Constitution of all presidents, to those who say he is secretly a Muslim working for Middle Eastern interests, and even more extreme theories about his association with extraterrestrials.
When Barack Hussein Obama was elected president of the United States in 2008, he was heralded as the nation’s first black president. Even the most idealistic among the nation’s citizens were not surprised that, in spite of having a white mother and being biracial, Obama would not simply be referred to as a senator from Illinois who won the highest office in land through the democratic election process. The United States had not yet reached the level of elevated consciousness where one’s most obvious racial features could be ignored. However, more socially mature Americans could not help but be outraged by the number of prejudicial claims and falsehoods that swirled around the forty-third president of the United States.
Among the conspiracies leveled against President Obama by impassioned theorists are the following:
- Barack Hussein Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya, to a Jewish mother, Stanley Anne Dunham, who was a CIA agent; his grandfather, Lord Barach, is Jewish. On his paternal side, Obama’s grandfather was a powerful witchdoctor of the Luo tribe. Madelyn Payne Dunham, Obama’s maternal grandmother, was a vice-president at the Bank of Hawaii and worked closely with Peter Geithner, father of Timothy, Obama’s selection for Treasurer of the United States.
- Obama has no birth certificate to prove he is an American citizen, a deficiency that would make him ineligible to run for president of the United States. There is no proof who his father is or even who his real mother is. There is strong evidence that Stanley Anne Dunham may have adopted Barry. Stanley Anne Dunham became a communist and entered into a relationship with Frank Davis, a communist zealot, who may well be Obama’s real father.
- Little Barry was lawfully adopted by Lolo Soetoro after Stanley Anne Dunham’s marriage to the Indonesian citizen, and the boy’s name was legally changed to Barry Soetoro. Lolo, who may be Barry’s real father, reared the boy as a Muslim, but Barry attended a Catholic-sponsored nondenominational school.
- Obama is the illegitimate son of Jo Ann Newman, a white teenage girl from the Bronx, who had an affair with Malcolm X in New York. Obama’s true birth name is Bari M. Shabazz, born October 10, 1959.
While Barack Obama’s birth records have been made public for many years, so-called “Birthers” refuse to accept the birth certificate and documentation provided by the Department of Health in Honolulu. Obama released his official birth certificate in 2008 before the election. On April 2011, a certified copy of Obama’s certificate of live birth was released.
His father is recorded as Barack Hussein Obama, African; his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, Caucasian. Obama’s birthdate is officially August 8, 1961; his name: Barack Hussein Obama II. Birthplace: Oahu, Honolulu. Additional evidence of his Hawaii birth is available in birth announcements published in August 1961 in two Hawaiian newspapers.
- Through a common ancestor, Mareen Duvall, Obama’s maternal grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham, a furniture salesman from Kansas, was a distant cousin to six U.S. Presidents—James Madison, Harry Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. Dunham is also related to Vice President Dick Cheney through an eighth cousin once removed.
- From the age of ten, Barry Soetoro was cared for by his maternal grandparents in Honolulu. He was raised Unitarian, which, much like the Freemasons and Judaism, is fertile ground for finding recruits for the New World Order, according to conspiracists.
Conspiracy theorists delight in their ability somehow to track genealogical records that indicate that many of the world leaders have been related for hundreds of years, thus implying that some shadow group such as the Illuminati seeks to control the hearts and minds of those governing the masses. Other theorists are convinced that many of the U.S. presidents are related and have an undisclosed Jewish heritage and membership in a secret occult society.
- Obama has a criminal record. Barry Soetoro did drugs and flunked out of Occidental College in California. He made his way to New York, where he lived as a homeless addict on the streets until a Pakistani boyfriend traveled with Barry back to Indonesia. When he returned to the United States, he began using the name Barack Hussein Obama in order to file his federal income taxes in Connecticut. At the same time, he secured a social security number from his grandmother, who worked in the probate office in a Honolulu courthouse and had access to the numbers of deceased individuals. Obama was given the number of Jean Paul Ludwig, who died in 1961.
Right-wing detractors of President Obama have been extremely active in their efforts to portray him as a drug addict, a criminal, and a gay man susceptible to blackmail by former lovers seeking to profit from his position as the president. J. P. Ludwig’s death came after the date that Barack Obama registered for the draft, so there is no way that his grandmother could have given him Ludwig’s social security number.
- Obama ordered a fake diploma from Columbia from a “diploma mill” and lied his way into Harvard, even though he had no actual transcripts to prove his academic background. This deceit accounts for the bizarre fact that none of the students who would likely have taken classes with Obama can remember seeing him at Columbia. Later, he embellished his position as a professor of law, and when he moved to Chicago and fell in love with Michelle, she helped him pass the bar and got him a job with her law firm.
Actually, a number of individuals have come forward and spoken of their time as Obama’s roommates or fellow students at Columbia and Harvard. And then there is Obama’s term as the first African American editor of the Harvard Law Review in 1990, the highest student position at Harvard Law School.
- Obama is an alien—a hybrid human—created from the DNA of a human mother and the sperm of an extraterrestrial visitor. Obama, a prize alien-hybrid, was created and tutored to become president of the United States by reptilian overlords and their human New World Order counterparts as an integral element in their plan of planetary dominance.
The theory of extraterrestrial reptilian overlords seeking to conquer Earth is common among a number of UFO conspiracy buffs. Some theorists add British royalty and other leading European political figures as agents of the reptilians—who, in some cases, are actually Reptilians in disguise.
- Obama is the antichrist, who will bring about a one-world government, a one-world religion, and a one-world economy before Jesus returns to defeat him at the climatic battle of Armageddon.
A favorite portrait of a sinister Obama is painted by certain evangelical right-wing Christians who believe in an imminent endtimes–Apocalypse scenario. While such a devilish precursor to Judgment Day as the Antichrist was considered very much a fringe belief held by a minority of conservative Christians 150 years ago, it has now become mainstream with images of a demonic earthly prince Obama, with Bush and Clinton before him, fulfilling the requirements of the image perfectly in the frightened minds of those who believe in the powers of a satanic majesty.
