Here are just some of the facts about Barack Obama that you will never hear about if you rely solely on the mainstream media for your news and information. Citations have been provided for all of these facts, as well. Let's begin:
Obama's middle name is Hussein. See: my.barackobama.com/page/invite/birthcert
His father was a Muslim (and a polygamist/bigamist). See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama%2C_Sr.
"Obama Sr. grew up in Nyangoma-Kogelo. At 18, he married a young woman named Kezia in a tribal ceremony. They had four children, two of them after he returned to Kenya from the United States. He never divorced Kezia, who now lives in Bracknell, England."
"On February 2, 1961, Obama Sr. married a fellow student, Ann Dunham in Maui, Hawaii. She did not know that he already had a wife in Kenya."
His mother was a left-wing atheist who got pregnant before their (shotgun) wedding. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama%2C_Sr.
"On February 2, 1961, Obama Sr. married a fellow student, Ann Dunham in Maui, Hawaii ... Their son, Barack Obama, Jr., was born on August 4, 1961." [Barack Obama was born just six months after their marriage. Therefore, his mother was already knocked up when they married.]
"Dunham's best friend in high school has said that she "touted herself as an atheist, and it was something she'd read about and could argue."
"[S]he was a lonely witness for secular humanism, a soldier for New Deal, Peace Corps, position-paper liberalism."
His mother was also a communist sympathizer. See: chicagotribune.com/news/politics/chi-0703270151mar27,0,5157609.story?page=3
""If you were concerned about something going wrong in the world, [Ann] would know about it first," said Chip Wall, who described her as "a fellow traveler. . . . We were liberals before we knew what liberals were."
His step-father was a Muslim. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolo_Soetoro
"Religious beliefs: Muslim"
He lived in Indonesia (a Muslim country) for four years as a youth. He was registered there as a Muslim. See: latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/bal-te.obama16mar16,1,7181735,full.story?coll=la-headlines-nation
"Obama's four years as a child in Indonesia underscore how dramatically his background differs from that of past presidential hopefuls ... "
"His former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama's grade-school teacher as childhood friends, say Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both of the schools he attended."
In Indonesia, he hung out at the Islamic Center, prayed to Allah at the local Mosque, and studied the Koran at school. See: latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/bal-te.obama16mar16,1,7181735,full.story?coll=la-headlines-nation
"As a boy in Indonesia, Barack Obama crisscrossed the religious divide ... In the neighborhood mosque, he bowed to Allah."
"That [Muslim] registration meant that during the third and fourth grades, Obama learned about Islam for two hours each week in religion class."
"The childhood friends say Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque."
"In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, Obama briefly mentions Koranic study and describes his public school, which accepted students of all religions, as "a Muslim school.""
""His mother often went to the church, but Barry was Muslim. He went to the mosque," Adi said. "I remember him wearing a sarong.""
"The statement added that as a child, Obama had spent time in the neighborhood's Islamic center."
He also visited Pakistan while in college. See: blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/04/obamas-college.html
"In 1981 -- the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University -- Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks ... "
Obama's half-brother believes he is a Muslim, and showed photographs of Obama wearing Muslim garb on a trip to Kenya. See: web.israelinsider.com/Articles/Politics/12918.htm
Obama's "church" was led by a radical anti-White and anti-American "Reverend" who was once a Black Muslim. See: web.archive.org/web/20060411204951/http://www.tucc.org/about.htm
"Trinity United Church of Christ adopted the Black Value System written by the Manford Byrd Recognition Committee chaired by Vallmer Jordan in 1981. We believe in the following 12 precepts and covenantal statements. These Black Ethics must be taught and exemplified in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Blacks are gathered. They must reflect on the following concepts:
1. Commitment to God
2. Commitment to the Black Community
3. Commitment to the Black Family
4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
6. Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
11. Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System 12. Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System."
"After many lectures like this, Obama decided to take a second look at Wright's church. Older pastors warned him that Trinity was for "Buppies"--black urban professionals--and didn't have enough street cred. But Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity's guiding principles--what the church calls the "Black Value System"--included a "Disavowal of the Pursuit of 'Middleclassness.'""
The official church newsletter gave a "lifetime achievement award" to Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation Of Islam. See: newsmax.com/kessler/obama_wright_farrakhan/2008/01/14/64332.html
"Barack Obama’s longtime minister, mentor, and sounding board has been a key supporter of Louis Farrakhan and last month honored the Nation of Islam leader for lifetime achievement.
Farrakhan has repeatedly made hate-filled statements targeting Jews, whites, America, and homosexuals. He has called whites “blue-eyed devils” and the “anti-Christ.”
Obama’s minister and friend, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. and his Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, honored Farrakhan at a gala, bestowing on him its Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Lifetime Achievement Trumpeteer award.
Obama has said he found religion through Wright in the 1980s and consulted him before deciding to run for president. He prayed privately with Wright before announcing his candidacy last year."
Obama attended Farrakhan's "Million Man March." See: biography.com/search/article.do?id=9291850
"In 1995, along with other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton and Barack Obama, Farrakhan helped lead the Million Man March on Washington."
Obama was endorsed by the Muslim terrorist group Hamas, and his campaign manager accepted the endorsement. See: powerlineblog.com/archives2/2008/04/020315.php
"Hamas has endorsed Barack Obama for President. Yousef said, "We like Mr. Obama and we hope he will win the election." Why? "He has a vision to change America.""

Do you "progressives" still feel comfortable supporting this guy?
And keep in mind, I left quite a few things out, such as Obama's friendship with the unrepentant left-wing domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, and his close ties to the Syrian-born Tony Rezko, who was recently convicted of fraud and bribery. Also unmentioned are his wife's anti-American comments and her anti-White senior thesis. You support this Manchurian Candidate at your country's peril.
