Malik Obama is now seeking donations for his mother’s funeral. One relative pitched in 20,000 shillings and another only 100, the equivalent of 93 cents in American currency. At this writing, the former president has yet to respond, and his statements about Kezia’s departure are hard to find. Writes Lloyd Billingsley
Kezia Obama, widow of the Kenyan Barack H. Obama, has passed away at the age of 81. A native of Kenya, Obama moved to the village of Bracknell in the United Kingdom and was receiving treatment there when she died. Cause of death was not disclosed.
In 1956, Kezia married Barack H. Obama and as Darrogh Roche of Newsweek reports, the Kenyan “later” married the American Stanley Ann Dunham, mother to former US President Barack Obama, born in Hawaii in 1961.The Kenyan Barack H. Obama, born in 1934, didn’t have much to say about Ann Dunham.
In all his documents from 1958 to 1964, housed at the Harlem-based Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York, the Kenyan Barack Obama makes not a single mention of an American wife and Hawaiian-born son. This material was first made available in 2013 but the president declined several invitations to review the archive.
Malik Obama, Keiza Obama’s eldest son, managed a foundation named after his father Barack Obama, who died in 1982. Last year, Malik told the New York Post that before the 2009 inauguration, the American president-elect “insisted I shut down the website and not continue with the foundation.” In 2015, Malik Obama made an appeal on behalf of Aunt Hawa, living in poverty and working as a charcoal seller. The president told Malik he was “broke.”
As Malik explained, “I don’t understand how somebody who claimed to be a relative or a brother can behave the way that he’s behaving, be so cold and ruthless, and just turn his back on the people he said were his family.” According to Malik, “What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that.”
Malik Obama also charged that Dreams from My Father was inaccurate and freighted with “embellishments.” For example, Malik’s grandfather was not detained and beaten by British troops in 1949. As David Garrow noted in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, that was hardly the only problem.
“Dreams from My Father was not a memoir or an autobiography,” Garrow wrote. “It was instead, in multitudinous ways, without any question a work of historical fiction (Garrows’ italics). It featured many true-to-life figures and a bevy of accurately described events that indeed had occurred, but it employed the techniques and literary license of a novel, and its most important composite character was the narrator himself.” This was all apparent from the beginning.
The Dreams author describes the Kenyan Barack Obama as a “useful fiction” and “a prop in someone else’s narrative.” Everybody calls the author Barry, but the Kenyan Barack Obama supposedly “bequeathed” his name to him. By the end of the book, the Kenyan is a nameless “Old Man.”
In the Dreams novel, a poet known only as “Frank” gets more than 7,000 words. Garrow correctly identified this character as Frank Marshall Davis and explains that Frank’s “Communist background plus his kinky exploits made him politically radioactive.” Davis disappeared from the audio version of Dreams and makes no appearance in anything else under the Obama brand.
In 2015, filmmaker Joel Gilbert (Dreams from My Real Father), asked Malik Obama if he saw any resemblance between the president and Frank Marshall Davis. “There’s a great resemblance,” said Malik, who was willing to take a DNA test. Malik also said he didn’t know what he would do if the president turned out to be “a fraud and a con.”
In 2016, the outgoing president backed former First Lady Hillary Clinton. Malik Obama voted for Donald Trump and continued to support Trump in 2020. “He’s not fake,” Obama told the Post. “He tells us the way he sees it. He’s bold and fearless and he’s tough.”
Malik Obama is now seeking donations for his mother’s funeral. One relative pitched in 20,000 shillings and another only 100, the equivalent of 93 cents in American currency. At this writing, the former president has yet to respond, and his statements about Kezia’s departure are hard to find.
The composite character’s own mother, Ann Dunham, married Indonesian foreign student Lolo Soetoro in 1965. Dunham passed away in 1995, the same year Dreams from My Father appeared. In 2004 the composite character, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, told the nation, “my father was a foreign student, born and raised in a small village in Kenya. He grew up herding goats, went to school in a tin-roof shack. His father—my grandfather—was a cook, a domestic servant to the British.”
The composite character rode that narrative into the Senate in 2004 and White House in 2008. In 2017, David Garrow revealed that Dreams from My Father was a novel and the author a composite character. That should have been the year’s biggest story, but the establishment media looked the other way and spent three years demonizing President Trump.
This is what happens when journalists serve as publicity agents for a composite character aiming to transform America into a one-party state.
