Drunken beatings and threats made with
a knife: Obama´s half-brother writes
book on the horrors of living with the
president´s absent father in Kenya

Daily Mail [UK], by James Nye

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/19/2013 4:01:09 AM

The Ivy-League educated half-brother of President Obama is publishing his autobiography in which he makes the shocking claim their father dished out alcohol-fueled beatings to him and his mother and in one terrifying instance held a knife to her throat. Mark Obama Ndesandjo, 48, also uses his new book to set the U.S. president straight on inaccuracies he claims exist in his best-selling 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father and confirms they have never seen eye-to-eye because ´Barack thought I was too white and I thought he was too black.´ The self-published book, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, which will be

Given the family history of deaths by motor vehicle, I hope Mark watches his back.

Strange he says Barak divorced Stanley Ann.....no record of any divorce except from Soetero. Barak was married when he supposedly met Stanley Ann......didn´t divorce his Keyan wife.
Barak Obama spelled his name differently than what the current B Hussein spells the first name. So, he cannot not be considered a "II", Jr. or otherwise. (This according to his composite B.C., computer generated.)

Obama´s half brother states that Obama came to Kenya to create a history of himself and is all fabrication in order to create an identity for himself. Evidently it worked because Obama has fooled over 60 million Americans into believing he is something he is not. Obama is a Marxist communist.

The 500-page book includes an appendix listing a number of alleged factual errors in Obama´s 1995 memoir, ´Dreams from my Father,´ such as quotes incorrectly attributed to Ndesandjo´s mother.
´It´s a correction. A lot of the stuff that Barack wrote is wrong in that book and I can understand that because to me [U][B]for him (Obama) the book was a tool for fashioning an identity and he was using composites[/B][/U],´ Ndesandjo said.

Agree completely with #10. Republicans spent one billion in 2012 and never came close to vetting the greatest fraud in the history of the world.. Wouldn´t even use his middle name or refer to his white and arabic heritage. Their lips were sealed when obama refused 5 million from Trump to reveal his college academic records.

I am so confused by Obama´s background. The only relative of his I would trust is his cousin, Dr. Milton Wolf, a radiologist, who is running in the Kansas primary against Republican Senator Pat Roberts. Dr. Wolf is a against Obamacare.

Mark Obama Ndesandjo does, indeed, resemble Barry plus he seems to be truly educated. He supposedly is an accomplished pianist - with his long fingers I don´t doubt it. The fact that he is married to a Chinese wife, is interesting. Do the Chinese dictators know some things about Barry which will compromise the U.S.?

"Oh what a tangled web we weave..." Will Shakespeare.

I intend to buy Mark Obama Ndesandjo´s book in the hopes that it will help untangle Barry Obama´s web of deceit.

I had the same thought, #15. Mark got "a bachelor´s degree in physics at Brown University, a master´s in the same subject from Stanford University and an MBA at Emory University." Physics is a real subject that you can´t fake knowing and you have to be smart and work hard to get those degrees from those colleges. Also, to be a good pianist you have to practice a lot and work up to high standards. And he seems interested in the truth.

All in all, he seems to be quite the opposite of Barack Obama, who has no accomplishments and no knowledge and whose identity is a fraud.

The destruction of the Diane Sawyer supported fakery of the lying WH occupant is really taking off, gaining ground! A gangster style thug, John Podesta, is brought in to clean up the Jaret commie WH chaos, Barry´s truly accomplished brother hits the news at exactly the right lying moment exposing new facts in Barry´s fake life, his brutal Benghazi murders are still in the headlines, Barry´s attempts to control the honest law abiding gun owning citizenry is a total outright failure, collaborating with the Pope in Rome to legalize 20 or 30 million alien invaders, to create a virtual new federal labor union of this uneducated labor class, is equally disgusting to all working Americans, as well as these open borders allowing Islamic supremacist terrorists the same open door to sneak into America unchecked, all of this nefarious ruinous mis behavior done with the approval of PelleySawyer media, BoehnerCantorRINo Congress, all of them equally traitorous in their own greed filled ways.
Let us hope the enlightening brother. Mark, does not wind up dead. He announced in Hong Kong. That has a familiar ring. Maybe he goes to Russia next for bodily protection !

#11 gets it. Most others do not.

Notwithstanding the wit and wisdom of the vast majority of Ldotters, I continue to be amazed that ANY of us would be so foolish as to believe that BHO Sr. was the real father of the president.

Please take 30 seconds looking at the photos on the Dreams from My Real Father site, and THEN try to tell me that BHO Sr is the real father.

Please get with it, gentle Ldotters.

The best reason for the birth-cert forgery is NOT the president´s place of birth. The best and ONLY reason is the fact that Frank Marshall Davis is the REAL father.

Open your eyes, look at the photos on the DREAMS FROM MY REAL FATHER site, and please STOP this "born-in-Kenya" nonsense.

If there is ONE reason to doubt the real Honolulu birthplace, it is the fact that, for 17 years, the liar HIMSELF stated in his publicity brochure that he was born in Kenya.

Therefore, you KNOW that the pathologically-lying, malignant narcissist was NOT born in Kenya.

This disclosure cost Andrew Breitbart his life. Please honor Breitbart´s memory and do some homework, gentle Ldotters.

Thank you.

The question is why did two American women marry dear old dad. In the US neither marriage was legal because of the one in Africa.
Mark is now living in China near Hong Kong. Is that his protection?

I must correct myself in #15 - William Shakespeare did not write "Oh what a tangled web we weave...." It was Sir Walter Scott in his famous epic poem Marmion. I am really embarrassed, especially since I wasn´t sure it was Shakespeare but was too lazy to verify who wrote it. So please don´t quote it to others as Shakespeare.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time.

Immortalised in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem about the “valley of death”, the Charge of the Light Brigade is remembered as one of the most glorious defeats in British history. The documents overturn much of the established wisdom of the battle and provide clues as to how the calamitous attack, during the Battle of Balaclava, in the Crimean War, came to be accidentally launched. [Snip] The charge saw the light cavalry mount an assault into a valley flanked, on three sides, by Russians. Lord Raglan, overall commander of the British forces, had intended to send the Light Brigade to pursue and

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future. When models of solar activity are further refined, we may be able to predict climate

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
