Obama Mystery Theater: New Video of Barack Obama and Half-Brother Mark Ndesandjo

Another exciting episode in our continuing series: Obama Mystery Theater. 

Inside Edition, according to the UK’s Daily Mail, recently aired previously unseen video of Barack Obama greeting his half-brother Mark Ndesandjo, when the latter surprised the former as he prepared to debate Hillary Clinton in Austin, TX, in 2008. [emphasis added]

The video is available at the link.  The story advises:

A never-before-seen video shows the moment Barack Obama reunited with his half-brother Mark Obama Ndesandjo after two decades apart. …

The half-brothers had met on only one prior occasion, when Obama visited his father’s family in Kenya in 1988.

The video obtained by Inside Edition shows candidate Obama entering the room, seeing his brother and looking extremely surprised. …

President Obama is Ndesandjo’s older half-brother. Their father, Barack Obama Sr, married Ndesanjo’s [sic?] mother Ruth Baker a few months after divorcing the president’s mother, Ann Dunham [in March 1964]. … 

While the president didn’t grow up with his father, Ndesandjo and his mother moved with Obama Sr back to Kenya where he spent his childhood. …

In 1973, Ruth Baker divorced Obama Sr and remarried another Kenyan man and Ndesandjo took his step-father’s last name.

Barack Obama Sr died in a car accident in Nairobi, Kenya in 1982 at the age of 46.

Apparently the half-brothers have a tradition of unexpectedly surprising each other.  According to Inside Edition,

Mark was 22-years old when one day in 1988 the big brother he’d never met showed up unannounced at his home in Kenya. After that emotional first meeting, the Obama brothers lost contact for almost 20 years.

This video and the accompanying stories raise several questions. Early on, we noticed discrepancies between the official story of Obama’s life and what others have said.  Apparently some people didn’t get the memo, or at least didn’t read Obama’s book about himself, so they must have accidentally told the truth.

Our O Timeline documents many discrepancies related to Obama, his trips to Kenya, his meetings with Mark, and certain facts about Mark’s mother.  There are links within our timeline to the sources that show the discrepancies.

For example, Inside Edition says,

Mark’s mother, Ruth, a white, Jewish school teacher from Massachusetts married Barack Obama Sr. when they met at Harvard in 1964. Just a few months earlier, Barack Sr. had divorced the president-to-be’s mom, Ann Dunham when he was only two years old.

Ruth Baker’s name was originally reported to the world as Ruth Nidesand.  Our post about Ruth illustrates further discrepancies between reality (as we currently know it) and the official story. Note that Ruth did not attend Harvard, but Simmons College, and that she taught elementary school in the Boston suburbs when she met Barack Sr., according to Sally Jacobs’s  biography of Barack Sr., so she didn’t meet him at work. So from where did the reporter get the idea that they met at Harvard?

Is this the result of sloppy reporting, or is it the result of somebody not being able to keep his stories straight?  Or is it because the narratives must morph as evidence to the contrary is discovered by the few unbiased reporters and citizen researchers?

Strangely enough, the Daily Mail story says (twice) that Mark and his mother moved to Kenya with Barack Sr.:

Different lives: While the president grew up without his father, Ndesandjo and his mother Ruth Baker moved to Kenya with Barack Obama Sr.

Poorly phrased or inadvertent truth?  Where was Mark Ndesandjo born? When did he and his mother Ruth move to Kenya “with” Barack Obama Sr.?  Where did he and his mother live before they moved to Kenya?  The Sally Jacobs book says that Ruth married Barack Sr. in Kenya, in December of 1964.  Did Mark and his mother move to Kenya before she married Barack Sr.?

The story adds another piece to the puzzle of when exactly Mark and Barack Jr. first met.  Jack Cashill, among others, has written about this particular discrepancy.  Cashill wrote about Obama’s state visit to China in November of 2009.  Because Mark Ndesandjo lives in China, the half-brothers met up during that visit.

At the time of Obama’s visit in 2009, Ndesandjo was marketing a semi-autobiographical novel about growing up with an abusive father. … 

Ndesandjo spoke movingly of his meeting with the new president. He was clearly proud of his “big brother.”

The sentiment did not seem to be reciprocated. When interviewed by CNN about Ndesandjo, Obama answered dismissively, “Well, you know, I don’t know him well.

Obama then added the kicker that deepens the Obama mystery,

“I met him for the first time a couple of years ago.”

Mind you, Obama told us in his own book that he met Mark in Kenya in 1988.  However, in a speech in Africa, Obama said he met him first in 1987.

Even the date of that first trip to Kenya is in question. Widely disseminated photos of Obama in Kenya (e.g., here , and there’s another in the Daily Mail article) are most frequently captioned as having been taken in 1987 or 1988, no doubt because reporters take their information, without skepticism or proof, directly from Obama’s books and speeches.  Some independent reports, however, state that Obama’s first trip to Kenya took place not long after his father’s death, sometime in 1982-1983.  Some of these discrepancies are documented in our O Timeline (begin in 1982, with Barack Sr.’s death.  See also this image of a page from an African newspaper that dates the photos to 1983.)

Nevertheless, in November 2009, Obama told reporters that he barely knew Mark, having met him for the first time only a “few years” ago.

His debate with Hillary Clinton, before which Mark paid a surprise visit to his half-brother, took place in January 2008, so nearly two years prior to Obama’s visit to China.

But there was another documented meeting between Obama and his half-brother, which took place between the debate and the meeting in China.  Mark was photographed with Barack Jr. in the White House on Inauguration Day, only 9 or so months prior to their China meeting.  See the photo at the top of the post; Mark is second from the right.

Cashill summed up:

Obama may not have read his own book, at least not recently. There should be no forgettingthe two poignant, detailed visits with a new-found brother …

Or three! How could he forget?

  1. New open thread.

    • Joseph is the spitting image of soebarky, imho.

      • There IS a resemblance where there should be NONE. Joseph was at the WH on Inauguration Day 2008 (far right, next to Mark) even though his mother Ruth and his father Simeon Ndesandjo were not present. Why?

        Joseph is Mark’s half-brother (we’re told) but Joseph shares NO biological connection to Obama. They both had different mothers and different fathers, so how could there be a resemblence?

        Why was George Obama, Barry’s biological half-brother, NOT invited to the WH but Joseph (no relation) was?

        Why, for that matter, was Lia Soetoro, Barry’s best childhood friend and adopted sister, apparently left in the lurch? Someone from Obama’s camp, she said, came to Indonesia to collect her birth certificate on the pretense of getting her a visa or passport so that she could attend the Inauguration. Yet that was the last Lia heard from the Obama camp.

        As we now know, subsequently, Lia mysteriously died before Barry finally visited Indonesia, but after he cancelled several visits to that country.

        • We may as well point out that on the far left is Malik, another of Obama’s half-brothers. Malik has recently been in the news (at least overseas and on domestic blogs) for associating with radical Muslim groups and even for being photographed wearing a scarf that calls for the destruction of Israel.

          “… In the photo, he can be seen wearing a Hamas scarf (keffiyeh) that bears a well-known Palestinian slogan – ‘Jerusalem is ours – WE ARE COMING!’ It also includes a map of Palestine that says, ‘From the River to the Sea!’ In other words, Malik is saying, THERE IS NO ISRAEL. …”

          And there he was, on Inauguration Day, in our White House. A guest of honor. Crickets on this topic, apparently, from the “White House”.

        • yes,exactly. There is a strong resemblance where there should be NONE.

          And is this photo actually from 1/20/2009? If so, what’s up with the dungarees? never mind.

          • I never noticed those dungarees. Guess he didn’t feel like dressing up or perhaps, let’s just guess, he took off his robe and that’s what was underneath.

    “President Obama “quipped” today during a visit to Monticello with the French president, “That’s the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.” …

    At 4:45 POTUS and president Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation. Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. POTUS said that he’d like to take a look and seemed delighted to “break the protocol”.

    “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want” he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman. Pool now in the mansion as the leaders will come and visit Jefferson’s study. …”

    He thinks he can, he thinks he can, he thinks he can.

    And in other news, he’s rewritten Obamacare again. This time, giving another year’s reprieve to companies with over 50 employees but less than 99 employees. Why? Because next year the employer mandate on small businesses takes effect and more people will lose their jobs and so, fearing that the DemoncRATS might lose the WH, they’re going to push the mandate off for another year. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304558804579375213074082656?mod=WSJ_hp_LEFTTopStories&mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702304558804579375213074082656.html%3Fmod%3DWSJ_hp_LEFTTopStories

    Most employers won’t face a fine next year [I thought it was a tax.] if they fail to offer workers health insurance, the Obama administration said Monday, in the latest big delay of the health-law rollout.

    The Treasury Department, in regulations outlining the Affordable Care Act, said employers with 50 to 99 full-time workers won’t have to comply with the law’s requirement to provide insurance or pay a fee until 2016. Companies with more workers could avoid some penalties in 2015 if they showed they were offering coverage to at least 70% of full-time workers.”

    So won’t the FINE (TAX?) be put off until after the 2016 election, because won’t companies pay it when they file tax returns for 2016 in 2017?

    That story spins it as if they’re doing this to help businesses. However another story says it is for POLITICAL reasons: http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/another-delay-in-health-law-s-employer-requirement/article_5d6660b7-e9cb-55e0-a9ce-32e2311e88ef.html

    Trying to limit election-year damage on health care, the Obama administration Monday granted business groups another delay in a much-criticized requirement that larger firms cover their workers or face fines.

    In one of several concessions in a complex Treasury Department regulation, the administration said companies with 50 to 99 employees will have an additional year to comply with the coverage mandate, until January 1, 2016. …”

    It’s NEVER about the people or what’s best for them. It’s ALWAYS about the DemoncRAT’s hold on power so they can continue to unconstitutionally and illegally RAM THROUGH COMMUNISM.

    • Ladies and gentlemen, get out your bananas: http://therightscoop.com/krauthammer-on-obamacare-employer-mandate-delay-this-is-stuff-you-do-in-a-banana-republic/

      Krauthammer: “But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It’s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama writes any number he wants, any delay he wants, and any provision.

      It’s now reached a point where it is so endemic that nobody even notices or complains. I think if the complaints had started with the first arbitrary changes — and these are are not adjustments or transitions. These are political decisions to minimize the impact leading up to an election. And it’s changing the law in a way that you are not allowed to do.”

      But apparently he is ALLOWED to do it. The question is WHY? Another question is FOR HOW LONG?

      • I heard someone on radio explain WHY this is unconstitutional and illegal. Barry excuses himself because he says the executive branch, of which he is the head, is tasked with carrying out laws and making the policies and regulations necessary to do so. But the person on radio (forgot who it was) said that a president can only make policies and regulations that agree with the text and purpose of the law, not that CHANGE the law or EXTEND it or DIMINISH it in any way. Duh. But Barry is of the push the envelope school, so he WILL continue to nudge, nudge, nudge until Congress gets off its collective duff and IMPEACHES HIM. He is sworn to uphold the law and the Constitution. He’s doing NEITHER. In fact, he’s deliberately NOT enforcing numerous laws.

    Apparently if you defend certain Constitutional rights, then you are a potential terrorist.

    “Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists. …

    Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists’ leader.

    ONG’s 52nd Civil Support Unit participated in a similar drill involving left-wing terrorists with Athens County first responders last year; public officials apologized for that training the next day in response to complaints from local environmentalist groups.

    No apology to Ohioans who support limited government and the Second Amendment appears to be forthcoming. …”

    “The menu for the state dinner, as reported by the Associated Press:

    “The first course will feature American Osetra caviar, farmed from the estuaries of Illinois, paired with quail eggs from Pennsylvania and a dozen varieties of potatoes from farms in New York, Idaho and California.

    “That will be followed by a salad of petite radishes and baby carrots on a bed of lettuce and splashed with red-wine vinaigrette made using honey from the beehive on the South Lawn. The salad will be served in a clear, glass bowl and resemble a terrarium.

    “The main course, dry-aged rib eye beef [NO PORK!!!] from a farm in Greeley, Colo., will be served with blue cheese, charred shallots, oyster mushrooms and braised chard.

    “Dessert is chocolate malted cake, described as a modern version of a layer cake made with bittersweet chocolate from Obama’s native Hawaii, Florida tangerines and served with vanilla ice cream from Pennsylvania. After dinner, guests can dip into a serving dish made entirely of sugar to sample fudge made of Vermont maple syrup, shortbread cookies made with lavender from Mrs. Obama’s garden and cotton candy dusted with orange zest.””

    “THOUGHT POLICE: FIRMS MUST SWEAR OBAMACARE NOT A FACTOR IN FIRINGS
    Is the latest delay of ObamaCare regulations politically motivated? Consider what administration officials announcing the new exemption for medium-sized employers had to say about firms that might fire workers to get under the threshold and avoid hugely expensive new requirements of the law. Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so. …”

    So let them have a license plate that reads:

    I don’t see the problem. Just make “Choose Death” plates available too.”

    Instead of the happy smiling faces of kids, they could show a dismembered baby product of abortion.

    • I was going to respond to your IRS/ Stasi comment:

      What Country are we in?

      So I;ll say it again, here:

      What Country are we in?

      • I can’t decide whether the old Soviet Union, Germany under Hitler, or Red China under Mao. Certainly it’s not the USA B.O. (before Obama). This is really nothing new, though. Remember how right off the bat he was leaning on companies, like Chrysler? The banks? They let that camel’s nose under the tent and now look what we’ve got.

        • its all so incredible.

          Did you hear that the EPA is going to ban wood burning stoves? If true, why? Maybe so you won’t be able to survive if the SHTF?

          • Stupid idea But Barry loves it. 👿

          • I didn’t hear that, but it’s not surprising. You know how many people in rural areas now rely on wood stoves because propane is so freaking expensive? Hmmm. Riddle me this: Who are the enemies of this guy? Why, those bitter clingers. They live in rural areas. Not the urban areas, where his peeps live. THEY, of course, get subsidized gas and electricity. He would never punish his peeps. Nope. But those bitter clingers. Those are the ones who can be punished, like they punish Tea Party groups and anybody else who opposes them. The EPA wants to ban gasoline mowers, too. We’ll have to cut our lawns with sewing scissors, I suppose. Too bad that we, unlike Mooch, don’t have peons to do it for us.

    “President Barack Obama defended the Affordable Health Care law today during his press conference with French President Francois Hollande. The president cheered the CBO report from last week that said Obamacare may cut the full-time workforce by 2.5 million jobs. Obama said, thanks to Obamacare, now women can go work on the farm.

    “But, what the Affordable Care Act does do, is it gives people flexibility… If I’m a woman who’s a county clerk and I’d really like to work with him on the farm, but we can’t afford health insurance on our own, so I’ve been working at the county clerk’s office for the last 10 years. Now, I’ve got the opportunity to no longer work in a different job and instead go work on that farm.”

    [GP responds:] What joy. Thanks to Obamacare women can now slop the hogs.”

    Like Lady Mary Crawley?

    What a masterpiece of off-the-cuff speechifying:

    “If I’m a woman who’s a county clerk and I’d really like to work with him on the farm, …”

    Him, who?

    • Unbelievable.

I always loved novels like Jane Eyre and Rebecca, because of the atmosphere. Maybe that’s the appeal. I was happy to see that Edith didn’t go through with it. In this country, she probably would have done and been praised for it in the liberal media. Our writers are all PC so she wouldn’t have been allowed to back out and to have chosen life. (Although I foresee a miscarriage. Don’t you?)

        • Yes, I too, think something will happen to the Baby.

          I have always been drawn to historical period pieces. Love of learning. Its also interesting to see how modern inventions came to being and the reactions of the people – and how old-fashioned they soon became.

Alinsky worked on them, they feared being mocked and ridiculed, especially early on in the usurpation, and they feared that would hurt their book sales and guest appearances. They were right about the guest appearances, The “Conservative” Fox News stopped having some of their regular guest because they feared they would bring up the subject of Obama’s ineligibility and identity fraud, and attempt to discuss it in a “fair and balanced” way. Later, the guest were just told with no uncertainty that the subject was, and still is off-limits.

        Coulter and the others made a decision, like Congress, and they now feel they cannot change that decision without destroying their credibility. They are trying to, “Have an exit plan”, to put them quickly on the right side when the SHTF.”

    “Fox: Prosecutor Andrew McCarthy; The Case Has To Be Made For Obama Impeachment”

    http://www.birtherreport.com/2014/02/fox-prosecutor-andrew-mccarthy-case-has.html#more

    bob68’s comment: “Neither Andrew or Megyn want to be told this, though I think they know. Here is why Obama ain’t gonna be impeached no matter what he does…and he of course realizes this is the reason he, “can do anything he wants to do”:

    When Congressional leadership, both parties and others also, especially in the cover-up, willingly allowed an ineligible identity fraud con-artist to become the putative president, they sealed the deal that they will never impeach or investigate Obama. That’s because what they did in 2008 and in the cover-up since then was and is treason at the highest level. Obama’s leverage to do anything he wants without fear of action by Congress is Congress willing participation in the biggest fraud in history.

    Congress protects Obama to protect themselves and their, set in concrete, goal is to ride out Obama’s usurpation until the end of his presidency and hope he just fades away, leaving them untouched for their part in what, by then, will be the total destruction of America, but out of prison.

    The opposition to Obama never seems to go beyond still more talk. Not real effective.

    If the Repubs can’t manage to not regain control of the Senate in 2014 they will find another excuse for doing nothing about Obama, my guess is, “not enough time”. There are no “good guys” in Congress when it comes to actually stopping and reversing the damage being done by the coup.

    Congress protects Obama to protect themselves.”

Of these groups, 83% were right-leaning. And of the groups the IRS selected for audit, 100% were right-leaning.”

        I guess My Brother’s Keeper is a new idea in this country. Someone should have thought to establish something by this time in order to serve our under-served and under-privileged brethren as there is such a need.

        What a geniass!

        Poor Folks. No such thing, except for the taxpayers in due time.

        • My Brother’s Killer needs help. Maybe he can come up with something to make the afro-amer genocidal murderers feel special. I don’t think we have any of those, yet. Hey, there’s money to be had! Just sayin’.

          • Yes, how many of the 55 million dead since Roe v. Wade fall under his regime and of them, how many were black (or brown or red or any other color he panders to)?

        • You just know he comes up with these names to push our buttons. Either that or he’s the most tone deaf man on the face of the earth. What brothers does HE keep? Not his own biological bros (or adopted ones, if any) or even the ones in the ‘hood, considering that black unemployment has SOARED under his regime. Are they better off? Hardly. And they know it.

    • Per the comments:

      The circumstances surrounding his death are scarce, but what is most notable is that not only is Crane the second very young JPMorgan banker to pass in recent days, but is also the fourth banker death in under a month. We can only hope this disturbing chain of deaths within the financial industry – one of which involved a nail-gun induced suicide – is purely accidental.

  18. Speaks for itself:

  19. OBAMA’s Fate …. J R Dunn…. & comments…
    ~ Suharto & Sukarno ~ (also spelled SOE-karno)

    • I like the ending:

      ” Looking at the current political situation, I sense the approach of nemesis. Our antagonists have gone a little too far. They have said too much, have threatened too many people, and have done so in words that they can’t back off from. How can Cuomo explain away his contempt for millions of citizens of his state? How can Schumer excuse his call for a government agency to act outside the law? How can Obama convince the country, in light of his trail of abuses and rhetoric, that he’s just one more president like any other?

      The simple answer is, they can’t. They have been too defiant, have acted with too much arrogance, have been too blatant, too ugly, and have revealed too much. Now the balance must be restored, one way or another, with or without the cooperation of the political classes of this county — and perhaps of any classes at all.

      It will not be by revolution, or uprising, or a walkout by Congress, or a blazing speech by an opponent. It will come by way of something minor — a curse overheard on the golf course, an insult thrown at a helpless citizen, a sick child denied treatment under ObamaCare. Then the collapse will come, like a sudden clash of cymbals. The Furies will be unleashed. In the same way that an avalanche is unleashed by a mere footstep, events will spin out of control, impossible to stop or direct. The forces have been building up for years. Eventually, they will burst forth. When that happens, there will be nothing human that can stop them. Study the fate of the Romanovs, the Hapsburgs, the Hashemites, and Soviets, the Ceaucescus, Qaddafi, Mubharak… and for that matter, Achmad Sukarno himself. The pattern is clear… the only question is how much time remains.”

      TRUTH WILL OUT. In the meantime, We the People ABIDE.

      Remember that Bapak of Subud fame was originally named Soekarno. What a coincidence.

    • What is in a name? Not much I suppose even if Barack translates to Bapak in Ukranian and in Serbian is Bapauk (although last week it translated without the “u”) but really, what is in a name?

  20. If Barry wants to help the black youth???
    He would tell them.. stay in school stay off of drugs.

    Pull up your PANTS!!! 🙂

    • Oh, yeah, yeah. A lot of people don’t understand how recessive genes work and they don’t know or remember that some traits are determined by multiple alleles that can have a big range of expression.

  21. where does O get that African Hair ….?
    The answer may lie in the way that hair-type genes are inherited.

    Hair-type doesn’t follow the nice and simple pattern of inheritance. Hair-
    type follows a type of inheritance pattern known as “incomplete dominance”. Like the earlobe gene, there are two versions of the hair-type gene, curly (noted as C) and straight (noted as s). The incomplete dominance refers to the fact that if you have one of each version of the gene, you get a mix of the two or, in this case, wavy hair. So for hair type, CC gives curly, Cs gives wavy and ss gives straight hair.

    • Interesting, back in the day my hair was poker straight black. Once I started graying it became curly. Crazy!

    • His “mother” had kinky, curly hair, so it’s maybe not “African”. Lots of Irish people have very frizzy, curly hair. He’s supposed to be Irish, isn’t he? People from Ambon have kinky hair. We talked already about Uncle George, the wild man from Borneo.

  24. I agree 🙂

  25. Birds of a dirty feather flock together. SOLIS’ pal Waggoner & his fellow
    IUOE brass have been accused by rank-and-file union members of systemic embezzlement, kickbacks, shakedowns, nepotism & intimidation. …OOO

    According to federal class-action litigation, the IUOE’s former national leader made death threats against dissenting members; officials allegedly took kickbacks from employers who shortchanged pension and training funds.
    Ah …. love is in the AIR… it’s contagious… every-body-does-it!

  26. Be Mine, Valentine ~
