Founding Fathers?

The documentary Obama 2016, really shows just how poorly the American news media has reported on the past of our current president. Below are some facts about influential people in his life.


1. Barack Obama Sr. — The Predisent’s father, was an economist who left the family in Hawaii to go to school at Harvard and then moved back to Kenya, wrote an article in 1965 entitled “Problems Facing Our Socialism,” which stated:

“Theoretically, there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.”

2. Frank Marshall Davis — Communist Party USA member #47544 and mentor to a young Barack Obama in Hawaii when Obama was sent to his mother’s parents to be educated at exclusive Honolulu prep school Punahou. Davis’s politics were so radical, the FBI placed him on the federal government’s security index, meaning that if a war broke out between the USA and Russia, Obama’s mentor could have been placed under immediate arrest.

3. Edward Said — Obama studied with Said at Columbia University and the two maintained a relationship over the next two decades.

Said was a member of the Palestine National Council where he worked with Yasser Arafat. One Jewish magazine dubbed him a “Professor of Terror.”

Other mentors include the more well known radicals Bill Ayers who bombed the Pentagon and Reverend Jeremiah Wright. These are all people that Obama talks about in his book “Dreams From My Father.” People reading this may never have heard of this information before which only proves my point that we need to do our own homework. If you want to learn more about these people, just google these names. The news media is too busy reporting on Mitt Romney’s tax returns.
