Another Doctored Image Deepens Obama Mystery

Does a family photograph of a young Barack Obama posted on the president’s Facebook campaign page offer a clue to the identity of his real father?

A professional graphic artist who examined the 1973 photo believes the image of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was airbrushed into the scene to cover up an African-American man who was standing next to Obama at the Honolulu airport.

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, who commissioned the analysis, told WND there’s substantial evidence that the man in the original photograph was Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party member and pro-Soviet propagandist who played a fatherly role in Obama’s teen years.

In his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” Gilbert presents a compelling case that Davis was Obama’s biological father as well as his ideological mentor. He believes the Dunham family recruited the Kenyan student Barack Hussein Obama to act as the father.

Gilbert posted a page on his website at the time this article was published with details of his find.

Gilbert says the black male hand under Obama’s armpit is strikingly similar to the right hand of Davis.

“We know from Obama’s own writing and interviews with Davis’ neighbors, that Obama was a regular visitor to Davis’ house from age 10,” Gilbert told WND. “This doctored photo on Obama’s own Facebook page seems to be part of a pattern of document forgery by President Obama to hide his biological and ideological relationship to communist Frank Marshall Davis.”

Obama would have been about 12 years old at the time the photo was taken. The image also shows Obama’s half-sister, Maya, and his grandfather, Stanley Dunham.

After Gilbert saw the photo on Obama’s Facebook page, he found a clearer version on the Web that he used in his video. The image used in his video has not been enhanced.

Gilbert commissioned Robert Nikolakakis, a professional graphic artist and illustrator from Montreal, Canada, to examine the photograph.

“There seem to be several suspicious anomalies in this family photo depicting President Obama as a child along with his half-sister, mother and grandfather,” Nikolakakis wrote in a report.

“All suspected alterations to the photo seem to point to the cutting, pasting and airbrushing of Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, into the photo to cover up someone of African-American origin,” he wrote.

Nikolakakis, with 21 years experience as an illustrator and graphic designer, has created websites, corporate identities, editorial illustrations, photo retouches and photo-manipulations for television shows, film studios, magazine publishers and photography studios. He as also served as a consultant for old-age special-effects makeup and has contributed to tutorials on photo manipulation.

A clearer version of the photo on Obama’s Facebook page

His analysis of the Obama photo found at least half-a-dozen anomalies:

  • The black hand under Obama’s right armpit doesn’t match Ann Dunham’s right arm. The size and color is wrong for a white female, and the hand is positioned closer to the camera than Dunham’s arm. The hand appears to be a remnant from a black male before it was airbrushed.
  • The chair on the far left next to Ann Dunham is brown and smaller than the chairs on the right, which are white. The horizontal support bar for the brown chair does not align with the white chairs’ support bar.
  • Ann Dunham’s hair over both her right and left shoulders show signs of airbrushing.
  • The lighting on Ann Dunham’s face is from the far left and is not consistent with the other figures, who are lit from above. This suggests Ann Dunham’s image was placed into this scene from a different photo.
  • Above and below Obama’s right elbow is a ghosting effect in which a glow emanates from the arm, suggesting a different underlying image such as a light-colored shirt behind Obama. Uneven pixilation is a sign of cloning.
  • Ann Dunham looks to be about 25 years old, too young for this 1973 photo. Maya, who was born Aug 15, 1970, looks to be about 3 years old. Ann should look 30 years old.

“This photo forgery appears to be part of Obama’s ongoing campaign to minimize, misdirect and outright lie about damaging information about his past,” Gilbert said. “I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America.”

In his film, Gilbert shows how Davis indoctrinated Obama with a political foundation in Marxism and an anti-white worldview.

Screen grab from Joel Gilbert video shows comparison of hand in Obama family photo with photo of Davis.

“This is a known phenomenon in the radical left, referred to as “red diaper babies” or “hand-me-down Marxism,” he noted.

He pointed out that much of the leadership of 1960s Marxist groups such as Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground were children of Communist Party USA members, including Katherine Boudin and Jeff Jones.

President Obama’s chief campaign adviser, David Axelrod, also is a “red diaper baby,” Gilbert said.As WND reported Tuesday, a new book by Paul Kengor, “The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor,” documents Davis’s work for the Communist Party and his influence on Obama.

As WND reported, Gilbert discovered photos published in magazines of Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, that he believes were taken by Davis.

Frank Marshall Davis

In his film, Gilbert documents that Ann Dunham gave her father, the “Gramps” of Obama’s autobiography, instructions to make sure her young son would be taken regularly to visit Davis while she was in Indonesia.

Obama mentions “Frank” 22 times in his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” without using his full name.

Gilbert believes the only scenario in which Obama’s weekly visits as a child to Davis’ home would make sense is if Davis was the biological father.

Much of what Obama has told the American public of his childhood has been proven false, he said.

“We now know that the family did not stay together in Hawaii until 1962, when the Kenyan Barack Obama went to Harvard to begin his graduate studies as Obama claimed,” said Gilbert. “Ann Dunham took her infant son with her to Seattle a few weeks after his birth and began studies at the University of Washington, while the Kenyan Obama remained in Hawaii for another year before leaving for Harvard.”

Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert maintains.

“It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades,” he said. “To understand Obama’s plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis.”

  1. How silly of Barack Hussein to post this picture on his Facebook page. He gave it all away.
    Can’t trust one word that comes out of this man’s mouth. Shame on us, Americans. Hope we don’t get stuck with him again.

  2. well this explains what Obama doing on the Grassy knoll!!!!! it is a well known fact that he was there, now we know who sent him since the only man on the planet with a black hand is wait for it…. Frank Marshal Davis!!! who then went on to comission the mossad to launch 9/11 attacks while having elvis fake a moon landing so that he could manipulate the weather into appearing to rise and faking glacier melting so that the iluminati can launch a new world order creating an fundamentalist islamic society dominated by atheists (That last line is an actual quote from Gingrich)
    Great expose, we got them!

  3. We are supposed to be an Am Chakham VeNavon, not a bunch of fools. It is extremely unbecoming – to the point of Chilul Hashem – for a supposedly Torah-oriented website to be posting drivel like this. That Matzav posted it – and any comments that support this conspiracy theory nuttiness – makes frum Jews look like idiots. For shame.

  4. A doctored photo doesn’t prove that this guy is his father. “All” it proves is that he is hiding something. Having a liar for a prez is a scary thing. What’s even more scary is that much of America couldn’t care less.

  5. You realize that goyim have access to this site right? Stop making us look like fools with this nonsense.

    To any non-Jew reading this: the overwhelming majority of us do NOT believe in these absurd conspiracy theories.

  6. Look. Its becoming clear that Hussain WAS born in Kenya. Its clear that the birth certificate WAS forged! The American people have become so blinded by Liberalism that they are like robots walking in the dark! They will continue to vote for this illigitimate President as long as he wants to continue being President (ala Bloomberg)!

  7. Get real. This is one for the flying saucer believers. If the author has to work this hard to get up a conspiracy theory he definitely has no future in Hollywood.

  8. THIS IS WHAT CORRUPTION IS ALL ABOUT & thats the problem, a Politician or askin etc… thinks he is just doing his job as a Politician or askin but in reality he knows that he is falling into corruption, & has the power to stop it but doesn’t (say its allowed or it can be done) & thats the yetzer hara that convinces him that he’s not doing anything wrong. its my job to be in power in politics… therefore i can tell them not to do it even though they are really allowed to & THATS CORRUPTION. & THATS WHEN THEY START TO BRING THEMSELVES DOWN & CAUSE THEMSELVES DESTRUCTION R”L hold yourself in as they start going down one by one

    CORRUPTION BRINGS A PERSON TO DESTRUCTION save yourself now before its too late i.e. for OBAMA its too late already, he’s way gone… & is just digging his grave deeper & deeper each day

  9. So, according to this latest Corsi nonsense then, this all proves conclusively that Obama IS a “natural born citizen” and not a Kenyan after all. oh well,… everyone,… even Corsi has to mach a leben.

  10. I laughed when I saw the Jewish Liberals wetting their hoisen over their phony-baloney Obama.

    Some of these Yidden really believe him? Could you imagine? A whole country got suckered into believing this guy and now many are too embarrassed to admit it!!!!

    Hahahahaha………..Too bad America!

  11. #18 – Anti-semitism is the orginal form of racism. The term “racist” was coined because of anti-semites in Europe who claimed Jews are a different “race” and therefor inferior and/or dangerous. It later was extended to any situation where biological background (race) was claimed to explain idfferences between groups.

    And yes, people who don’t like blacks or hispanics generally also don’t like Jews. They may hide it in an effort to get our votes, but be sure that when they get “backstage” with their buddies they say what they really think about us.

  12. Wow, this Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) controls the whole world! And here I thought that the Elders of Zion controlled it.

  13. Please judge this President on his lack of merits and not on conspiracy theories. These theories only give ammunition to Obama’s supporters.
