“It’s an insult to his mother”

Stanley Ann Dunham

Stanley Ann Dunham

The utter lack of disrespect that some birthers show towards the president’s deceased mother appalls me, particularly the frequent claims that she is a “liar”. I was raised not to disrespect anyone’s mother, and particularly not a departed one, and I was taught not to call anyone a liar unless I was pretty damned sure it was true. What compounds the insult is that there is no evidence whatever to support the nasty speculation.

The New York Times article earlier this month, carried comments from Congressman Neil Abercrombie.

… Mr. Abercrombie, who has represented Hawaii for nearly two decades in Congress, was a close friend of Mr. Obama’s parents, who were students at the University of Hawaii in 1961. The president’s father, Barack H. Obama Sr., was from Kenya, but Mr. Abercrombie said the suggestion that the Obama baby was born in Africa is an absurd impossibility.

“He was born in Kapiolani Hospital, right down the street from where I lived,” Mr. Abercrombie said. “They had no money. I can’t imagine how they would get to Kenya. It makes no sense at all. It’s an insult to his mother.”

I agree.

    if there’s one thing the birfers have shown no lack of, it’s disrespect for barack’s mother.

    Really irritates me too. Even when I despised Bush’s policies, I didn’t call Barbara Bush a ‘dame’. These people have no shame. By the way- they aren’t any better about his Hawaiian grandmother either.

    However, his Kenyan Grandmother(who is not the actual birth Grandmother) is a saintly paragon of truth- at least when they believe the story they want to believe.

    Helll, being the traitors that they are, the birthers’ disrespect for the mother and grandmother of The President of The United States is hardly surprising, look at the nastiness directed at President Obama’s wife and children, THAT shows the lack of class that makes up the birther cult.

    I wish I could be surprised, but I remember when Rush Limbaugh put up a picture of Chelsea Clinton, then 13 years old, and called her the “White House Dog”.

    I regret to say that back around that time, I considered myself a conservative, but I abandoned it in part because of the demagoguery of people like Limbaugh and Gingrich and the growth of “movement conservatism”.

    The birthers are complete clowns with an astounding level of arrogant ignorance.

    The silver lining is the DISrespect the birthers get from judges across the Unites States. Not one judge has failed to kick their asses out of his or her court room. They have a 100% failure rate.
    I laugh every time they come to a court date and are soooooo sure they will get a hearing only to be followed by the crash-and-burn.
    Then they vow to appeal the decision.
    Look back at their postings in Dec 08 when they were sure that Justice Thomas was taking this seriously – NOT.

Of course you’ll never find that out since you and your kind will go to any length to Enable an ineligible man in the Presidency so defending his mother from lying (which she clearly did) is right down your alley.

    Still making unsupported assertions I notice? And even if she ‘perjured’ herself in a divorce proceeding, what relevance has this to the fact that President Obama was duly elected and qualified.

    Shame on you my friend. But then again, this may be ‘par for the course’?

    Stanley Ann Dunham committed the egregious sin of having a child by an African man. In some quarters that negates any respect one would normally garner. There were some Right Wing sites that posted nude pics of a women and claimed it was Stanley Ann. Conservative journalist Lisa Schiffren wrote in the National Review that Obama was a “Secret Communist Baby”. She said that both Barack Sr. and Stanley Ann were Communist, because during the 50’s and 60’s that was the only way white females dated black men. She also said if abortion had been legal in all likelihood Stanley Ann would have had one. Ugly stuff.

    What a stupid statement by Lisa Schiffren. She is either not old enough to remember or she ignores the reality that just because abortion wasn’t legal, safe and available, that abortions didn’t happen all the time before 1972 and Rowe v Wade. Safe abortions by a doctor were always available with women with money who would go to a high priced gynecologist who performed abortions in his office in the States, or tofly to Mexico or France. And for those without money, there was Molly O’Ryan, or Mammy Kate in the tenement house who would do the deed with her knitting needle or coat hanger. No matter what your point of view on this issue, if you don’t realize that being legal doesn’t stop or cause abortions. A woman who doesn’t want a baby will find a way to not have it. If Ann Dunham didn’t want her baby, she wouldn’t have had him, no matter how legal abortion was. Tell me people aren’t this naive.

    It’s not surprising for some people who’s dislike of Obama is racially motivated.

    To them, Stanley Ann Dunham is a “race traitor” who committed the unforgivable sin of having a child by a black man, (and later a brown asian man)

    In 1930, my mother was 18. A neighbor went to bed with her boyfriend, and became pregnant. When she told her father, he called her a tramp, locked her out of the house, and disowned her. She came to my mother begging for help. My grandfather bootlegged, so my mother got $100 together, and the neighbor had an abortion in NYC. She was butchered. My mother said she was not going to tell me who, because she belonged to our synagogue.

    In 1989, I was working in DC. A friend of the manager came in with her baby, whose father was black. One co-worker looked at the baby and said “Where did that one come from?”

    Sure, Ann Dunham had a black boyfriend, so of course she was a commie – who else would do something so despicable?

    America is changing, and the denialists are going clinically mad.

    It’s particularly tragic given the fact that she was such a remarkable woman for any era, let alone the 1960s and 70s.

    She was a PhD Anthropologist who worked among the poor craftspeople of Indonesia, a recognized expert in native textiles, and an innovator in the field of microfinance… later in life consulting for the largest microfinance programs in the world.

    She was accomplished and admirable of her own accord, even had she never given birth to the current leader of the free world.

    This is civil procedure 101. Residence is a legal term with a legal meaning. For example, here’s what the Hawaiian statute says:

    (5) A person does not gain or lose a residence solely by reason of the person’s presence or absence while employed in the service of the United States or of this State, or while a student of an institution of learning, or while kept in an institution or asylum, or while confined in a prison;

    Students outside the state still reside inside the state.

    Do you guys know that the law has specialized terms that aren’t the same as in common, everyday speech?

    More smears from JTX- he really doesn’t have any shame does he? Wait until he gets started on Obama’s kids. I cringe to think up what he will make up about them.

    “And she got lots of funding from the Ford Foundation to do a good bit of that.”

    And that is a bad thing how? This is the organization that funded Sesame Street amongst other things. Unless of course you are into Bircher accusations.

    “Yes, Gordo, the truth sometimes what you’d like it to be. Mamma O. Jr. clearly WAS a communist”

    a) prove it- and b) last I heard it was legal to be a communist in the U.S.. Of course this is the usual smear tactics of the right- smear the target with wild unsubstantiated rumors of being a pinko- McCarthy would be proud of you.

    “Why do you think that Stanley Ann always stayed away from America as a place of residence as she obtained her education and moved to Indonesia”

    Maybe because she had a doctorate in Anthropology and wanted to put it to work? Maybe because she lived in Indonesia and found the country fascinating? I have known corporate people who have worked most of their careers over seas, yet you wouldn’t call them haters of the United States? Anyway- as usual JTX- full of puff, but no evidence that his mother hated the United States OR that Obama hates the United States. I do suspect however that you hate the United States. And to put it in JTX terms- Your hatred of America is shown in your actions.

    Oh and JTX- good smearing of a dead woman by saying she perjured under oath. I notice Birthers like to attack the dead- less concern about lible or slander. McCarthy would indeed be proud- as would Lenin actually.

    Her proposed solution to poverty was a classically capitalistic solution, micro-credit.

    It’s hilarious that JTX, who claims to be a judge but who will never cite judicial precedent to support his views, doesn’t know the difference between “living” in Hawaii and having residency in Hawaii. Obama’s mother didn’t claim that she had “lived” in Hawaii for the two years prior to the divorce filing. The divorce papers say that she “is now and for more than two years past has been a resident of Honolulu, City and County of Honolulu, State of Hawaii…”

    And it was also used for Max Schmeling, when he beat Joe Louis.

    “In 1936, the situation in Germany had changed. Schmeling traveled to New York to face…Joe Louis…He surprised the boxing world by handing Louis his first defeat, dropping him in round four and knocking him out in the 12th. Schmeling returned to Germany on the Hindenburg as a hero.

    The German Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels proclaimed Schmeling’s victory a triumph for Germany and Nazism. The SS weekly journal Das Schwarze Korps, commented: “Schmeling’s victory was not only sport. It was a question of prestige for our race.”

    Greg:

    You are full of beans about residency. Here’s more information about the HI requirements:

    Other legal factors in making a residency determination include:

    “1.The 12 months of continuous residence in Hawaii shall begin on the date upon which the first overt action (see evidences) is taken to make Hawaii the permanent residence. Residence will be lost if it is interrupted during the 12 months immediately preceding the first day of instruction.

    “Residence” and “resident” are legal terms that do not mean the same thing to the law as they do in casual conversation.

    Donofrio’s latest gem: Was Obama’s Mother a US Citizen At The Time of Obama’s Birth?

    How do we know Stanley Ann Obama didn’t avail herself – after she was married, but before Obama Jr. was born – of the BNA 1948 by registering to be a UKC citizen?
    […]
    It’s more logical to assume Stanley Ann Obama did avail herself of UKC citizenship rather than assuming she did not.”

    Whhhaaaaaa? It is more logical to assume that Obama’s mother renounced her U.S. citizenship that it is to assume she did not?

    When called on this rampant, fact-free speculation, Donofrio responds: “Besides the fact that it’s entirely plausible that a woman such as Stanley Ann might want to lose her US citizenship in the 60’s, and despite the fact that it would have been natural for her to obtain citizenship in the same nation as her husband – despite all of this rational thinking which you characterize as ‘almost over the edge’… the point of the article was made crystal clear – as to Obama, we just don’t who the hell he is. Hard to believe we can sit here and legitimately ask these questions and we are not allowed to know the answers to them.”

    While it is plausible, it is not probable, especially in the light no supporting evidence. Considering the relatively brief relationship Obama’s parents had (soon after Obama was born, they never lived together, and were divorced just a few years later), the window for it be “rational” for her to decide to give up American citizenship for CUKC status was pretty small. (Really, wouldn’t it have been much, much more rational for Obama, Sr. to become a U.S. citizen?) And this absence of evidence does not mean we don’t know anything about Obama, or that “someone” is preventing people from learning something that is even remotely relevant or grounded in a factual basis.

    The stupid, it hurts.

  83. avatar
    Bob August 27, 2009 at 7:01 pm #

    And the obvious kicker: Even if both of Obama’s parents had CUKC status, if Obama was born in Hawaii, he’d still be a natural-born citizen!

  84. avatar
    Greg August 27, 2009 at 7:15 pm #

    He also makes the fact-averse statement that underpins most of the hopes of the people who hang their hat on the narrow view that Wong Kim Ark only applies to those who are permanent domiciliaries of the US.

    “We know for a fact that Obama’s father was a UKC citizen and never became a US citizen and was never permanently domiciled in the US.

    We know the first two things, but the last is a mystery practically unknowable at this late date. It cannot be divined from the fact that Obama left the country – domicile requires an inquiry into the intentions someone has at the instant in question. If you want to establish jurisdiction in a personal injury case, for example, you look at the person’s intentions at the time of the injury.

    Did Obama Sr. intend to stay permanently in the United States when Barack was born? Who the F knows? Donofrio certainly cannot know it “for a fact.”

    This is civil procedure 101. No wonder Leo quit the law for poker! (His winnings from poker tournaments are listed as around $45k for three years, how bad does your law practice have to be for it to make sense to quit to make $15k a year?)

    Those three lawyers are the best constitutional minds in the country. In fact, Orly Taitz should be Chief Justice, since she knows more about Obama’s status than that liberal lackey Roberts.

    Any day now it’s going to come out that Obama’s parents were commies, and he was a red diaper baby, just like Lani Guinier – whose mother was a Jew who schupted black men.

    I just had a post disappear, so if this shows up twice, that’s why.

    Donofrio starts off today’s gem with a statement of what we “know” for a fact, including that Obama’s father “was never permanently domiciled in the US.”

    Donofrio should stick to poker. This is one of the first things you learn in civil procedure. Domicile is a specialized term that is distinct from immigration status. It means a place of abode and an intention to stay there permanently. It’s a fact-based inquiry that looks at the mental state of the person at the instant in question. Did Obama Sr. have an intention to stay here permanently when his son was born? The fact that he did have a son, and got married are pieces of evidence that suggest he did.

    There seems to be a good reason why Donofrio gave up the law for poker.

    Your claim is merely BS.

    I posted the requisite regs from the U of HI previously which you apparently missed – so I’ll repeat them:

    “Other legal factors in making a residency determination include:

    1.The 12 months of continuous residence in Hawaii shall begin on the date upon which the first overt action (see evidences) is taken to make Hawaii the permanent residence. Residence will be lost if it is interrupted during the 12 months immediately preceding the first day of instruction.
    2.Residency in Hawaii and another place cannot be held simultaneously.
    3.Presence in Hawaii primarily to attend an institution of higher learning does not create resident status. A nonresident student enrolled for 6 credits or more during any term within the 12 month period is presumed to be in Hawaii to attend college. Such periods of enrollment cannot be applied toward the physical presence requirement.
    4.The residency of unmarried students who are minors follows that of the parents or legal guardian. Marriage emancipates a minor.
    5.Resident status, once acquired, will be lost by future voluntary action of the resident inconsistent with such status. However, Hawaii residency will not be lost solely because of absence from the State while a member of the United States Armed Forces, while engaged in navigation, or while a student an any institution of learning, provided that Hawaii is claimed and maintained as the person’s legal residence.”

    But do we really ‘know'(in Birther terms) that Obama Sr was a UKC citizen? Do we really know that he was never a U.S. Citizen? Until we see his UKC citizenship paperwork(long form original birth certificate, attested to by the attending midwife, and validated by extensive testing) he may have been born in the United States. How can we prove he was not born in the U.S.?

    Has it been proven that he never became a U.S. Citizen?

    I mean I really think all evidence leans towards him being born in Kenya but is there really sufficient proof?

    The word “resident” means (hmmm!!) “resident” – but I thought you knew that.

    And you claim to be a judge? Do you have a copy of Black’s?

    Legal Residence The place of domicile or permanent abode, as distinguished from temporary residence. Permanent fixed place of abode which person intends to be his residence and to which he intends to return despite temporary residences elsewhere or despite temporary absences. U.S. v. Calhoun, C.A.Fla., 566 F.2d 969, 973

    The Dunhams moved to Hawaii from Washington in 1959, when Stanley Ann Dunham was 17. She married Barack Obama Sr. in February, 1961 and Obama was born in August, 1961. Obama’s mother enrolled at the University of Washington in January, 1962 ane Barack Sr. graduated the University of Hawaii in June, 1962.

    Do the math. Stanley Ann Dunham resided in Hawaii for 18 months before she married Obama, Sr. and she continued to physically live in Hawaii until she enrolled at the University of Washington. As others have pointed out, attending school in Washington had no effect or her status as a legal resident of Hawaii, and nothing that she did between January 1962 and January 1964 did anything to change her status. She then enrolled at the University of Hawaii and graduated in 1967.

    The only issue here is legal residency. Temporary residency has no effect upon legal residency. Maybe you need to go back to law school for a refresher.

ALL their children took up there foreign parent citizenship as well as their Nigerian citizenship & are making very good use of it as many now reside in those foreign countries . I know this because several of my cousins are in this situation & we grew up jealous of them not needing visas to go to those countries & able to settle there needing very little documentation as against someone going as an immigrant.
    No African will ever encourage his(her) foreign partner to relinquish there citizenship status as it opens the door for that partner to take up such foreign citizenship easily.

    “Judge,” you should remember from first year law school that “permanent domicile” is not the same alien status. You can be here on a student visa and still establish a permanent domicile.

    Permanent domicile is determined by looking to see if there is an abode and a fixed intention to stay indefinitely. You can be permanently domiciled somewhere and be an alien. You can be permanently domiciled somewhere than later change your mind.

    You have to look at O Sr’s intentions at the instant of Jr’s birth.

    No- he hasn’t. Actually he told everyone is a NBC- he did that when he filed his election papers.

    JTX- you have no shame, no evidence, nothing but lies and wishful thinking

    JTX- I keep calling you on it, but you slide past truths like a dime store lawyer-

    a) Where is your proof that either parent was a communist and
    b) Why does it matter? Other than trying to smear the parents and therefore taint the son by association- why does it matter? Its not illegal to be a communist in this country, its not as if being communist would disqualify President Obama, its not even as if they being communist would mean that the President was a communist(which again is legal, so this would just be a political point).

    Why do you keep trying to use the tactics of McCarthy and Goebbels on the President? Have you no shame at all?

    jtx the idiot can’t read:
    his quote says:
    “However, Hawaii residency will not be lost solely because of absence from the State while a member of the United States Armed Forces, while engaged in navigation, or while a student an any institution of learning, provided that Hawaii is claimed and maintained as the person’s legal residence.”
    that contradicts his comments and the idiot doesn’t even know this.

    Having LIVED in Hawaii, I dare say I know more about residency than you do for that state.

    Here’s a hint – there’s a difference between “temporary residency” and “legal residency”.

    To cite the very section you posted (bold face mine)

    “3.Presence in Hawaii primarily to attend an institution of higher learning does not create resident status. A nonresident student enrolled for 6 credits or more during any term within the 12 month period is presumed to be in Hawaii to attend college. Such periods of enrollment cannot be applied toward the physical presence requirement.”

    Which is about standard for most states. Non-resident students are presumed to be in that state as students, not as residence, and as such residency is not counted.

    5.Resident status, once acquired, will be lost by future voluntary action of the resident inconsistent with such status. However, Hawaii residency will not be lost solely because of absence from the State while a member of the United States Armed Forces, while engaged in navigation, or while a student an any institution of learning, provided that Hawaii is claimed and maintained as the person’s legal residence.”

    Pretty clear. If Hawaii is claimed as the student’s legal residence, then it doesn’t matter that the student is attending school on the mainland.

    The irony being is that you yourself CITED this section, which goes against your earlier statements.

    Oh, and I can express myself without profanity. You might give it a try sometime.

    Here is the original on this blog from June 27, jtx wrote:

    To Cymraeg:

    And I’m a retured [sic] judge with 57 years of experience – and I totally disagree with your belief.

    Upon viewing jtx’s comment in context (it is a response to Cymraeg’s claim to be a lawyer with 40 years experience), I think it was actually a dismissal of the value of Cymraeg’s claim rather than a literal assertion by jtx that he was actually a judge, which the larger context of jtx’s body of work proves is not the case.

    “Can somebody tell me if Michelle Obama’s license was placed on “Court Ordered Inactive Status” in 1993?”

    I can’t see how this would be relevant in anything but a smear campaign?

    In other words, at best, if true, its an attempt to smear the President for something his wife did, and at worst, its an outright lie intended to cause personal and political harm.

    It’s another birther fantasy. Her Illinois Registration status is “Voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law – Last Registered Year: 1993” Note VOLUNTARILY INACTIVE. In other words, she voluntarily ceased practicing law.

    Can somebody tell me if Michelle Obama’s license was placed on “Court Ordered Inactive Status” in 1993?

    Technically, yes.

    The court order is required to avoid carrying malpractice insurance, but the decision not to practice law was her, not the court’s. She asked the court to go inactive, and they granted her request in the form of an order; hence the “voluntary” part. (If asked to go active again, and was eligible to do so, the court would allow her to do so.)

    Michelle went on voluntary inactive status in 1993 — at the time, the procedure in Illinois was to request that status from the court, thus “court-ordered.”

    The reason for that status is that she took a job that did not require her to actively practice law. Being “inactive” relieves a lawyer from other obligations, such as payment of bar dues, meeting continuing education requirements, and/or maintaining malpractice insurance — but an “inactive” lawyer can reinstate their membership at any time simply by notifying the bar and meeting whatever requirements (such as payment of current bar dues) that are imposed on active lawyers.

    Yeah, and judges are not appointed straight out of law school. Even assuming jtx was elected justice-of-the-peace when he was 18, that would make jtx at least 75. Possible, but very, very unlikely.

    IMO, jtx’s sarcasm was evident.

    My NYS optician license is inactive. I requested that, so I do not have to carry malpractice insurance, nor meet CE credits.

    No evidence, no witnesses exist she was really his biological mother. Even the divorce decree of 1964 does not recognize child support since the Court did not know who the father was either. Funny how Barack Hussein Obama I never lived with Stanley Ann Durham Obama Soetoro isn’t it.

    dunstvangeet September 2, 2009 at 2:02 am #

    And no witnesses exist that can confirm the circumstances of John McCain’s birth. That must mean that John McCain lied about his birth place, since no witnesses exist. Do we even know who his father really was? I mean, no living witness can confirm it, therefore John McCain must have lied.

    The public deserves the right to know.

    Furthermore, no living witnesses can confirm that Ronald Reagan was really born where he said that he was born. Therefore, I propose that Ronald Reagan was really a communist plant from Russia, given fake birth certificates, and planted in the United States to destroy this country! This must be true, since no living person can confirm his birth circumstances.

    Honestly, how many people do you think would actually remember his birth from 50 years ago, AJX?

    Forget McCain, he is history. September 8, 2009 is next week and if Obama does not prove to an ex Marine Federal Judge in Santa Ana CA that he was really born in the USA he will be held in contempt of court and arrested for fraud. Simple as that. Hope his loan papers don’t come out. You know they are public documents with his SS# on them…

    “No evidence, no witnesses exist she was really his biological mother.”

    By your standards only a DNA test would suffice- except unless of course if the mother had an identical twin. Really- where was this outrage over George Bush or Bill Clinton? Where was this suspicion that Barbara Bush was not Jr’s mom?

    Nope- you birthers are only suspicious of the Black Man. Prior to our African American President, no one ever asked a President to prove his paternity or maternity. Now that isn’t proof that you are a racist, but then again since when do you folks rely upon proof? Lies, innuendo and gossip are your ammo.

    Prove that his mother was not his biological mother. Prove that he wasn’t born on U.S. soil. You know- provide something beyond lewd gossip to prove your point.

    Sounds like AXJ is under the impression that there will be evidence presented to Judge Carter next week. Come back Sep 8 in the afternoon AXJ, and check in with us on how things went. My predictions:
    – No evidence will be presented.
    – No one will be proving anything about anyone.
    – No one will be arrested for fraud or anything else.
    – No one’s loan papers will come out.
    – Ex-Marine Federal Judge and Birther Holy Priest will be nothing but a stinking Obot to you by 3 PM EST.
    – See ya back here next Tues AXJ!

    Ridiculous, all one has to do is take one look at the picture of his maternal grandfather at this link. Look at it and try to tell us Ann Dunham is not his mother.
