Is President Obama A Pathological Liar?

The Obama Record: The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he’s been caught lying about family racism.

In “Dreams from My Father,” his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather’s imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty. He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden “old man.”

In fact, none of it is true, according to Washington Post editor and biographer David Maraniss, who traveled to Kenya to investigate the tale. His grandfather was not detained or beaten by his “white rulers,” as Obama, writing as a 34-year-old lawyer, claimed.

This is only the latest example of a growing body of fabrications, embellishments and outright lies told by this president, who has a real and possibly pathological problem with the truth.

Stacked up, his whoppers would make even Bill Clinton blush. Here’s a sampling:

Lie No. 1: Obama has repeatedly claimed his white grandfather, Stanley Dunham, “fought in Patton’s army,” when he was a clerk with no combat in WWII.

Lie No. 2: Obama claimed Dunham, a communist sympathizer, signed up for duty “the day after Pearl Harbor,” when in fact he waited six months.

Lie No. 3: Obama claimed his father “fought when he got back to Kenya against tribalism and nepotism, but ultimately was blackballed from the government,” when in fact he fought against capitalism and lost his job when he advocated communism.

Lie No. 4: Obama has claimed his late mother’s health insurer refused “to pay for her treatment” for cancer while citing a “pre-existing condition,” when Cigna paid all her hospital bills and never denied payment.

Lie No. 5: Obama claimed he and a black high school friend named “Ray” were ostracized in Honolulu, when in fact the friend, Keith Kakugawa, was half-Japanese, and neither of them experienced discrimination.

Lie No. 6: Obama claimed the father of his Indonesian stepfather was killed by Dutch soldiers while fighting for Indonesian independence, when in fact the story turns out to be “a concocted myth in almost all respects,” Maraniss found.

Lie No. 7: Obama claimed his parents decided to marry in the excitement of the Selma civil-rights march of 1965 — and that he personally has “a claim on Selma” — when in fact they were married several years earlier.
Lie No. 8: Obama claimed his father got to study in the U.S. thanks to JFK’s efforts to bring “young Africans over to America,” when in fact the Kenyan airlift his father participated in occurred in 1959 under Ike.

Lie No. 9: Obama submitted a phony bio to his book publicist claiming he was “born in Kenya.”

Lie No. 10: Obama denied being a member of the socialist New Party, when a member roster of the Chicago chapter of the party lists him joining on Jan. 11, 1996.

Lie No. 11: Obama claimed he had only a passing acquaintance with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, when in fact they held a fundraiser for their Hyde Park neighbor in their living room, and years later, while Obama served in the U.S. Senate, hosted a barbecue for him in their backyard.

Lie No. 12: Obama claimed he never heard Rev. Jeremiah Wright spew anti-American invectives while sitting in his pews for 20 years, when in fact Obama was moved to tears hearing Wright condemn “white folks” and the U.S. for bombing other countries and even named his second book after the sermon.

Lie No. 13: Obama claimed he got in a “big fight” with old white flame Genevieve Cook, who after seeing a black play asked “why black people were so angry all the time,” when in fact she never saw the play nor made the remark.

In both his autobiographies, Obama paints a false portrait of a still-racist America and West, where he, his friends and relatives are victimized by that racism. Conveniently, his remedy is redistributive justice through bigger government.

  1. Good Morning America :D


  2. Freedom, by the way

    I guess all it takes to rise in this world is an abililty to re-invent your personal history and look good on camera. The American people were snookered. Shame on everyone who voted for Obama the first time around.
    Thanks for an informative post. I have refused to read any of Obama’s books. Now that I know they are fiction, what is the point?


    • Fiction, hmmm? You bring up an excellent point and perhaps an Article on Obama’s books being fiction is in order.

      Are you up for it?


      • Freedom, by the way

        But then I would have to read them, Sami, and I’m just not sure I’m willing to submit to that torture. And goodness knows I wouldn’t spend 50 cents to buy one at a yard sale. How about YOU, my friend?


        • Well my friend, if I decide to take on this challenge I will need to find a place where I can buy a box of Barf Bags to help get me through it. I have suffered from ADD all my life and so reading these books could be a bit much as I tend to drift off from what I am reading without retaining what I had read.

          Guess I’m saying I might not be the best person to take this on thus I tried to pass it off on you ;) lol

    Anyone who does not see his many lies is living in a Fantasy world, instead of Reality!!


  6. Hey now folks, you can’t blame the MSM for the desperate attempts to defend Obama.
    They hitched their wagon to this fool and he is obviously an abject failure.
    The pool of quicksand is expanding exponentially, and the more they struggle, the deeper they sink.
    In this case, we are the ones sitting on the side with the stick that could save them with a big grin on our faces. :D
    Nice !


    • I say let the worthless Bastar!s sink and yell ” I told you so” as they vanish from the face of the Earth.


      • Socialism is a fool’s dream.
        History proves it over and over again.
        Free market capitalism always works until the socialists get their hands on the money that the capitalists have earned and spend it to promote socialistic ideals.
        The cycle is endless throughout history.
        The socialists controlling this Country will destroy Her if we allow them to.
        And they will have no remorse because they are not American, and have no soul.


  7. Sam, Rob Lorinov has an interesting addition to your above post.
    Worth a look.
