  • LENA DUNHAM TWEETS EXCUSES FOR HER ALLEGED-RAPIST: NOT A 'CLEAR CUT VILLAIN'

    Breibart Hollywood ^ | October 18, 2014 | John Nolte
    According to Lena Dunham's memoir "Not That Kind of Girl," the same man who allegedly raped her and hurt two other women is still on the loose. According to our own reporting, Dunham has not volunteered to cooperate with authorities in order to get her rapist off the street. Early Saturday morning, Dunham appeared to tweet excuses for the man she claims raped her. During a book tour appearance earlier this month, Dunham told Howard Stern that not all rapists are "straight-forward villains." Dunham's tweets, though, represent the first time she appears to have made excuses for the man she...

    Lt. McClosky, the Department's Public Information Officer, said that the department is aware of Dunham's rape allegation. In accordance with Oberlin College policies, upon hearing about the rape allegations through the media, the school notified local law enforcement. Lt. McCloskey added that there was "No report or incident report filed at the time" the raped allegedly occurred, and that if the "victim doesn't come forward criminal charges are impossible to file." Wednesday an official at Ohio's Oberlin College informed Breitbart News that the school is looking into the allegations but that the investigation is unlikely to go forward without Dunham's...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/3/14 | John Note
    In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn't wearing a condom.

    Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama's mother's "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann's "days in Seattle" weren't mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss's lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama's mother's time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack's time in Seattle are...

    Barack Hussein Obama’s birth riddle is being analyzed in a 13 page, Amicus Curiae brief filed with the Alabama Supreme Court by Harvard Attorney Albert W.L. Moore Jr. The brief promises to offer a straightforward theory as to just who this man in our White House really and truly is. (1) Moore summarizes what is going on: “He (BHO) was a natural born American on the date of his birth, but further official records prove that he lost American citizenship and constitutional eligibility to the Presidency as definitively confirmed by his 1983 naturalization as an American citizen. By law, this...

    Perhaps we'll be seeing less of Lena Dunham on screen in the future: The "Girls" talent says she might consider quitting acting to focus on some of her other work. But don't worry, she's not going far. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," the Golden Globe-winning 27-year-old said in the April issue of Glamour, which hits newsstands March 18.

    Apparently unretouched photographs of Lena Dunham's Vogue shoot have revealed exactly how much the fashion glossy airbrushed the star. The pre-Photoshop images, acquired by Jezebel today, show how the Girls creator's jawline has been narrowed, her waistline slimmed and even smile lines removed. An image of the 27-year-old star seated on the edge of a bathtub in a Dolce & Gabbana dress demonstrates these changes to greatest effect.

    President Obama Thursday took his daughters to see the grave of his grandfather, Stanley Dunham. From the pool report: President Obama’s motorcade made its way to Honolulu, passing by stunning vistas while occasionally being slowed by congested roads. After a 30-minute drive, Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia arrived at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Puowaina Punchbowl Crater. Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, is interred at the cemetery. Four minutes after arriving, Obama and his daughters were back in the motorcade. The next destination is unknown. Afterward, the president, Sasha and Malia made a late afternoon stop at...

    Obama was looking forward to spending the night at his house in Kenwood, on the city’s South Side—the redbrick Georgian Revival pile that he and Michelle and their daughters left behind when they took up residence in the White House. He arrived fairly late, after 10:00 p.m., but then stayed up even later, intrigued by some old boxes that had belonged to his late mother, Ann Dunham. Dunham had died seven years earlier, but Obama hadn’t sorted through all her things. Now, alone in his old house for just the third night since he’d become president, he started rummaging through...

    We can drop this debate over his birth certificate because we have something even more valuable. We have his mother’s passport files. Snip~ When Obama was young, children traveled as an addition to their parents’ passports. Passport regulations required a photo of parent and child together, as well as a certified copy of a hospital birth certificate. State-issued IDs came much later.

Snip~ Obama's original long form birth certificate was sealed and archived after a Court order to seal it. A Certificate of Live Birth for Barry Soetoro, son of Lolo Soetoro and Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro, was created and filed as part of the finalized adoption order. In 1971, Barry Soetoro was taken into protective custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. His legal custody was...

    JAKARTA, INDONESIA, March 7, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – As a young child in Indonesia, Barack Obama’s nanny was a transgender “woman” who walked around his home in female clothing and let the future president see him trying on lipstick. In 1969, “Evie” – who was born a man with the name Turdi – worked as a cook when he met Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. (Turdi/Evie, like many Indonesians, goes only by one name.) Dunham had moved to the nation’s capital of Jakarta to live with her second husband, Lolo Soetoro. For two years, Turdi watched “Barry”, as Obama was called,...

In the video, Ms. Dunham glowingly compares voting for Barack with being deflowered by him. Unbelievable. And so this thing went viral faster than a herpes outbreak. People couldn't believe Team Obama would actually want voters to see this. But apparently they do. I thought for a while that, because of the widespread (no pun intended) negative reaction, they had pulled the video. But today, at least, the YouTube VIDEO is...

    In a recent article, "Dreams From Governor Abercrombie," the relentlessly false claims Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie made concerning our president's birth were exposed. Upon examination, it appears that Ann Dunham's girlfriends from high school were having "dreams" just as fanciful as Abercrombie's. Like Abercrombie's story, the girlfriends' early versions of Ann's visit to Seattle track with details from Obama's autobiography, Dreams from My Father. This is the same story Obama rolled out in both convention speeches -- the "improbable love," the multicultural marriage, the hopes for Barry's future. Unfortunately for Abercrombie, Susan Botkin Blake, and Maxine Box, we now know...

Obama’s white mother is most likely a direct descendant of one of the first documented African slaves in the United States, said the team of genealogists.

    In my previously published article "Secrets Revealed," I concluded that what President Obama is concealing on his genuine long-form birth certificate (not the digital PDF forgery released to the public) is that his mother signed her maiden name. snip Personally, I think the preponderance of evidence shows that Obama's marriage to Ann Dunham was a legal contrivance that suited both their purposes -- Obama's as a means to maintain residency in the U.S. until he completed his studies, and Ann's (and maybe also her parents') to provide legitimacy to the baby's birth. In no way was this a meaningful marital...

Obama’s American mother, Ann Dunham, separated from her first husband, Barack Obama Sr., in 1963 when the president was 2 years old. Dunham and Obama Sr. are reported to have later divorced. In Hawaii, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian, in 1965 and moved to Indonesia in October 1967. Divorce documents filed in Hawaii on Aug. 20, 1980, refer to Obama as the “child” of both Soetoro and Dunham, indicating a possible adoption in the U.S. The divorce records...

Madsen's credibility is certainly checkered. But if he is correct about which department she headed, Madelyn Dunham must have supervised the accounts that the U.S. government used to funnel money to its "gray" and "black" activities throughout Asia.

The Nasdaq plummeted 6.9%. Why should it have been any different? In his brief statement, the only thing President Obama demonstrated was a cluelessness about the country's current mess — of which the debt downgrade is just the latest example — and an even weaker grasp on how...

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama often discussed his mother's struggle with cancer. Ann Dunham spent the months before her death in 1995, Obama said, fighting with insurance companies that sought to deny her the coverage she needed to pay for treatment. "I remember in the last month of her life, she wasn't thinking about how to get well, she wasn't thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality. She was thinking about whether or not insurance was going to cover the medical bills and whether our family would be bankrupt as a consequence," Obama said in September...

On the contrary, this opacity is a deliberate policy. Why? The presumptive answer, absent testimony from those involved, is to ensure that real facts interfere as little as possible with the image and narrative that he and his associates have carefully crafted for him. Distinguishing between reality and that narrative would require above all a skeptical attitude, sure to be characterized by Democrats and the media in...

Early in The Other Barack, a childhood playmate recalls how Obama Sr. would frequently snap at him and shout, “You don’t know what you are talking about.” A few chapters later, the editor of the University of Hawaii literary magazine describes Obama Sr. barreling into his office, unprovoked, to declare that a particular poem wasn’t “worth a damn.” Back in Nairobi, says one government official,...

    A retired Army captain and plaintiff in the lawsuit Barnett, Keyes et al v. Obama, about which The Post & Email reported previously, is filing a lawsuit against the State Department for failing to disclose information on Stanley Ann Dunham’s passport records requested almost two and one-half years ago.

    Why does BHO's official biography state: "His mother, Ann Dunham, was born and raised in small-town Kansas. After her family moved to the Hawaiian Islands, she met Barack Obama Sr., a Kenyan scholarship student enrolled at the University of Hawaii. The two married in 1959, and on August 4, 1961 ...." Wikipedia says that Stanley Ann graduated from highschool in Washington state in 1960, and moved to Hawaii and started college that fall, where she met BHO senior. "Dunham and Obama Sr. were married on the Hawaiian island of Maui on February 2, 1961, despite parental opposition from both families....

    WAS SHE IN HAWAII OR OVERSEAS FROM 1961-64?(May 3, 2011) — Following a lawsuit filed by Mr. Christopher Strunk against the U.S. State Department which resulted in the release of some of Stanley Ann Dunham’s passport applications and travel records, The Post & Email contacted Mr. Jonathan Rolbin at the State Department, whose cover letter to Strunk had implied that the remainder of her records had been ordered destroyed in the 1980s. Since Mr. Rolbin’s letter to Strunk stated that the General Services Administration was responsible for ordering the destruction of passport files, we first contacted that agency. The GSA...

    With a father like this, it is little wonder President Obama did not want to release his full birth certificate. Though the proof that he was actually born in Hawaii may silence some critics, a new, rather more interesting side of his life has emerged - that his father Barack Obama senior was a serial womaniser and polygamist who government and university officials were trying to force out of the country. Obama senior married Stanley Ann Dunham, a white student from Kansas, not only when he was said to have already been married to a woman in Kenya, but at...

    “I may be the only person left who specifically remembers his birth. His parents are gone, his grandmother is gone, the obstetrician who delivered him is gone,” said Nelson, referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98. Here’s the story: Nelson was having dinner at the Outrigger Canoe Club on Waikiki Beach with Dr. West, the father of her college friend, Jo-Anne. Making conversation, Nelson turned to Dr. West and said: “‘So, tell me something interesting that happened this week,’” she recalls. His response: “Well, today, Stanley had a baby. Now that’s something...

    ...A bingo lover who follows the US election on Fox News and al-Jazeera, Mrs Obama was just 19 when her husband left her in 1959 to study in Honolulu, where he was to meet Mr Obama's mother Ann Dunham, then 17, in a Russian class at the University of Hawaii.
