Barnhardt’s theory of Obama
Andrew E. writes:
I’m sure you’ve heard how Arizona Sheriff Arpaio has been investigating the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate. Well, Ann Barnhardt, of Koran burning fame, has her own theory about Obama’s birth and the circumstances surrounding it. It is a great example of thinking outside the box. She also gives some information that I wasn’t aware of before which makes the overall theory more believable. She says it is known that Obama was passing multiple social security numbers as his own in D.C. while a United States Senator. Were you aware of this? How can that be possible? Ann Barnhardt does not permalink her blog entries so I’m just copying her blog address.LA replies:
I agree that her theory (or rather speculative scenario) is original and worth reading. Even if it turns out to be entirely false, which it may well be, it represents an attempt to tie the mystery of Obama’s origins and early years into a coherent picture, which we haven’t had.
I should have made clear that there are things in Barnhardt’s theory that I totally disbelieve and that I have previously expressed that disbelief in strong terms, e.g., that Obama was born in Kenya. Why then did I have an overall positive reaction to the theory? Because it was more than the sum of its parts. It put the parts together in a way that fit. That doesn’t mean it’s true. I don’t think it is true. But it’s an intelligent and audacious attempt to get at the truth, on a subject about which we don’t have the truth, and that makes it worth reading.Paul Nachman writes:
I read her theory. It’s full of things I’ve never heard before that sound like facts but that would need to be confirmed, e.g. for an Indonesian adoption, the adoptee must be an Indonesian citizen. [LA replies: Right. She just asserts that, without backing it up at all.] Regarding multiple Social Security numbers, assuming it’s even possible to get a Social Security number from a person who probably doesn’t want you to have it, why would he be so stupid as to use more than one stolen number?Paul K. writes:
Considering the state of air travel in 1961, how likely is it that a very pregnant Stanley Ann Dunham would travel to Kenya to give birth to Obama? Wouldn’t a trip like that have been prohibitively expensive for her?Andrew E. writes:
Here is a link to an undated article by Steve Baldwin from the Western Center for Journalism (never heard of it) which discusses Obama’s use of multiple social security numbers as well as other aspects of Obama’s history that are still a total mystery.March 7

Another angle on the President’s origins connects him to Chicago through Frank Marshall Davis. Suppose he was the child of Stanley Anne Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis. Since Davis was already married (to a white Chicago socialite), the Kenyan college student Barack Hussein Obama is enlisted to “marry” the mother and provide a veneer of legitimacy for the child. It is through Davis’s connections in Chicago that Obama has the wheels greased for him whenever it is needed. And that gained him a place at the table with the Ayres-Dohrn gang and the rest of his Chicago connections.Elli writes:
There would be no need whatsoever for Mrs. Dunham to pull up the SS number of a dead person for her grandson. She had registered Obama’s birth—all she had to do was to apply for a valid SS number for him.
