According to documents recently released under a "Freedom of Information Act" request, Barack Obama's father told immigration authorities in 1961 that his unborn child was going to be given to the Salvation Army for adoption, because those authorities were upset with Obama senior's bigamous marital status.
The documents show that officials weren't happy that the 24-year-old Kenyan had gotten his teenaged American wife "Hapai" (Hawaiian for "knocked up," which comes shortly after getting "lei'd"), and found his marital status suspicious owing to the fact that he already had a wife and two children in Africa and he didn't live with his new wife - the increasingly swollen Stanley Ann Dunham.
The documents show that authorities had previously warned Obama senior about his "playboy ways" and that serious consideration was given to not renewing his student visa, which would have forced him to leave the United States.
Barack Obama's father was said to be worried about his inability (and unwillingness) to provide financial support for his third child and obviously believed that if he'd made a "mistake," he shouldn't be punished with a baby.
Which is why he eventually skipped out on his personal responsibilities, feeling that others should bear them...and created a son who not only feels the same way but is imposing that warped vision on an entire nation.
But with so many urgent problems in our nation right now, is it really fair or meaningful for us to go back and look at Barack Obama's family issues? Absolutely. Because the only way to understand this president's strange and frequently anti-American worldview is to understand how he came to be the man he is.
And despite two self-serving autobiographies, the only way to learn the truth about this "transparent" president continues to be through the Freedom of Information Act.
