Truly frightening expose of Barack Obama's dark side,
This review is from: Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography (Paperback)
EDIT of 14 Dec 08: Obama has been balanced in his early days, but conventional. He is appointing a "winner take all" Cabinet and going along with the Wall Street desires for massive bail-outs. He can be a great president if and only if he breaks the backs of the two criminal parties, invites Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, Cynthia McKinney, and Chuck Baldwin to be a kitchen council, and passes Electoral Reform and the Smart Nation Act. I am not holding my breath but will hope for the best.
EDIT of 19 Oct 08 to point to comment from author on this review and add Associated Press image of Obama's Indonesian citizenship and Muslim faith as registered for school in Indonesia.
This book may have been published too late, and I have to ask myself if John McCain's staff is incompetent, or whether McCain has somehow been sidelined and "contained" so as to LOSE this election.
I have read a great deal, not just in books, but in articles, online, and so on, and I am fairly persuaded that Barack Obama has not been properly vetted, and that there is a conspiracy of silence that is extraordinarily well-funded.
I am especially troubled by the complete absence of any proof that he actually attended Columbia University; by the very high probability that he was in fact raised as a Muslim (until he returned to the USA); and by the very bad company that he keeps--and here I refer to Zbigniew Brzezinsky, and the Democratic "regulars," not Reverend Wright.
I am also troubled by the fact that most people of color see him for what he appears to be an elitist on the payroll of Wall Street corporations, a "House Negro" in their telling of the story, and hence the ideal "front man" for Wall Street's last great looting of what is left of the American treasury.
This book, which I could not put down once I picked it up, has eleven chapters, and each is incendiary. There are many places where I believe the author--a gifted historian whose integrity is unimpeachable--goes over the top on his political interpretations. A certain amount of filtering is required, but the bottom line for me is clear:
1) Barack Obama's valid US citizenship has not been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. His current birth certificate may be forged, and he may have lost his original one in the process of renouncing U.S. citizenship upon adoption. At a minimum he would appear to have conflicted loyalties.
2) His early years being raised as a Muslim have been proven by at least one enterprising reporter, but the entire media--a completely controlled enterprise that continues to refuse fully-funded public service advertisements--appears to have been ordered to cover this up.
I am going to have to read this book at least once more. The author provides a wealth of detail along three other paths that are very troubling:
1) Senator Obama is a shameless full-up member of the Chicago crime circles and corruption circles, and has not shirked from their financial sponsorship.
2) Senator Obama does not appear in any Columbia University literature, class photos, and has failed to produce a transcript of his claimed time at Columbia, or proof of graduation. His staff and his biographies are both adamant on not discussing this period in his life.
3) Senator Obama appears to have been groomed for his role, and to be a consummate actor who plays the role he is paid to play.
Here are the chapter headings, which the publisher has not seen fit to provide--with the caveat that the author sometimes goes a bridge too far with his interpretations of the facts, the facts are never-the-less there and I for one do not trust Obama, in large part because of the company he keeps and who he listens to.
Introduction: Obama from the Ford Foundation to the Trilateral Commission
Chapter 1: Obama's Roots in Polygamy and the Ford Foundation
Chapter 2: Columbia University and Recruitment by Zbigniew Brzezinski
Chapter 3: Foundation-funded Racism in Chicago: Jeremiah Wright and Michelle
Chapter 4: Apprenticeship with Foundation-Funded Terrorists: Ayers and Dohrn
Chapter 5: Obama's Heart of Darkness: Rezko, Auchi, Alsammareae, and Chicago Graft
Chapter 6: Grabbing a Senate Seat with a Little Help from his Trilateral Friends
Chapter 7: The Hope Pope and His Trilateral Money Machine
Chapter 8: "Our Souls Are Broken" -- "Feel Don't Think! Be Visceral!" -- Michelle Obama, Postmodern Fascist Ideologue
Chapter 9: Obama's Triumph of the Will: The 2008 Primaries
Chapter 10: Obama: A Looming World Tragedy
Chapter 11: Obama as Social Fascist
The appendices are fascinating and include an actual law suit that was not allowed to proceed, seeking force Obama to document his U.S. citizenship properly.
Like other anti-Obama books, one has to do some filtering, but at the end of it all, I have to treat books like this the way I treat books about the 9-11 "let it happen" and cover up: there is substance here that the public has a right to evaluate, and that the media is NOT evaluating.
PLEASE: buy and read this book for yourself and weight in with your own opinion. In my view, similar to books like Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil, there is enough here to indict, but not to convict. Only a mass of thinking citizens can go that last mile. My role here is to propose that you all do that: engage. I do want to emphasize that my greatest concern about Obama is not whether he is gifted (we know he is), but rather who is behind him, who controls him, and what his puppet masters will have him do--despite Colin Powell's endorsement, I trust John McCain to be independent, and I have seen Obama shut out those who would help him balance the Democratic "advisors" that are in my view dangerous.

The following comment from the author is posted with permission. When combined with the ACORN scandals and the breach of the public trust by both parties and by their Wall Street masters, I conclude that we need a maverick willing to break the backs of BOTH parties, and implement Electoral Reform that restores the Constitution and the Republic.
Dear Robert -
That is a very excellent start and I thank you very much. I would stress the issue of Obama's personal background as an operative of the oligarchical foundations grouped around the Ford, the Annenberg, and the MacArthur (who fund Bernardine Dohrn).
This is the family business, since Obama's mother worked for the Ford Foundation, and Barky has worked for the Gamaliel, the Woods, the Joyce, and the Annenberg. Michelle has her own direct line to foundation money through her health care "collaborative." These are truly patronage troughs for political opportunists on the make.
There is some evidence which I cite that the Weatherman terrorists were funded by the foundations from their very inception. The foundations funded the black power demagogic opposition to ML King, and they funded Ayers and Dohrn to wreck the student and anti-war movements, bringing them both to an abortive conclusion. This explains why Ayers controls $50 million plus from the Annenberg Foundation and Dohrn gets a big multi-million dollar grant from the MacArthur Foundation - her own evil genius grant -- since these provocateurs have been working for the foundations since 1965, 1966, 1967 or thereabouts. This shows a great deal about the role of the foundations as the heart of the domestic social control apparatus.
This is related to the excursus on foundation tactics, seen most clearly in the NYC teachers strike of 1968, which I felt I had to describe in detail since it is little known today.
This then goes on to the Trinity United Church of Christ, where Wright is obviously foundation funded, and Otis Moss and Dwight Hopkins are both major grantees of the Ford Foundation. The goal here is to create a synthetic religion distinct from Christianity which would allow racism and hatred to be projected into theology for the benefit of the affirmative action black overclass, while the black inner city sinks deeper into despair.
So Obama's mother board or hardware is from the ultra-left affirmative action foundation world, and his software comes from Zbig-Trilateral-Bilderberg (foreign policy) and Chicago school-Goldman Sachs-Volcker-Rubin (economics).
Obama plus Pelosi plus Reid equals the fascist corporate state also in the technical sense of an economic system based on state-sponsored compulsory cartels designed to drive down wages and production and shore up fictitious capital formation (derivatives).
This would be the reign of totalitarian liberalism (the worst of Keynes and the British Labour/Libor party) with a much more serious attack on the first amendment free speech clause than we ever saw under Bush-Cheney or would ever see under McCain. See the prosecutors in Missouri who are threatening criminal action against those who "lie" about Obama, or against radio stations that broadcast ads about Obama and Ayers. Very ominous, also on the fairness doctrine.
McCain-Palin plus a Democratic congress would offer some hope of a meaningful partisan debate about economics under breakdown conditions, with the Obama wing of the Democrats discredited and the Clinton wing trending towards the New Deal, which is where I think the solution lies.
Thanks again -

If you go, they win. Your reviews are excellent. Please don't leave. You don't need to buy anything from them, but keep reviewing for the sake of the authors and readers.

You state that there is a "very high probability that he was in fact raised as a Muslim."
I'm curious why that matters. Does being Muslim preclude holding the office of the presidency? Are all Muslims terrorists? Or are those who play the Muslim card just looking to exploit the fear and anger of those looking for someone to blame for the failures of the Bush administration?
As far as I'm concerned, the only reason it would bother me if Obama was a Muslim (which he isn't) is that he had tried to hide this from us. I would happily vote for a candidate of any faith or of no faith if I agreed with his/her politics and thought they could do a good job. Even a Christian.

NOTE: This is a late comment but I was just now reading this discussion.
The_Fifer: You make an honorable point but you can't really expect people to be that objective. Faith is a passionate thing and people who have such a faith can't really "turn it off" just because they are in public office. My problem with a Muslim being president would be that this country was founded by men who were, for the most part, Christians. A large part of our culture is based in the Christian faith. I'm not trying to insite an argument, just a dialog.
If you would like to give your response I would be interested in what you have to say.

I agree. The US has blown its population policy for lack of integrity. Population policy is among many other things supposed to assure all citizens of jobs, keep the age balance and not bring in an excess of immigrants who change the nature of the country away from its roots. Origionally immigraiton policy was about percentages from the founding European countries. Then it changed to allow for family reunivfication with ILLEGAL aliens. This is just nuts. The Muslim (and Jewish and Catholic) faiths are also invasive faiths--they think that faith matters more than country, and will betray their country for the right offer from Islam, Opus Dei, or the Mossad. I believe most of America now sees that the White House is theater and we live in a two-party tyranny. What I am not sure of is whether populism will rise again and restore the sovereign people over the corrupt government.

@Mr. Steele: I agree with you on the White House, it definitely rings of the theatrical. The founders designed the Constitution to be a guide for the GOVERNMENT, not the citizens. Hopefully a patriotic majority will one day understand that and take back the nation, as we are entitled to.
