Who is the REAL Barack Obama?
“…This is an extraordinary fact based expose of the fairy tale story “sold” to the American public about Barack Obama and those who have surrounded and influenced him since childhood. Do you know ANYONE who believes the things Obama believes or would do the things Obama has done? What is most disturbingis the extent to which the mainstream media has been complicit in keeping these facts from the American public. …”

“…Professor Paul Kengor, author of the sensational book, Dupes, speaks on how communists have manipulated progressives and why Barack Obama’s relationship with Communist Party USA member Frank Marshall Davis is so important. Kengor credits America’s Survival, Inc. for telling the truth about Obama’s communist mentor and obtaining Davis’s 600-page FBI file.”

Paul Kengor & Glenn Beck “The Communist” on GBTV Frank Marshall
Glenn Beck talks to Dr. Paul Kengor about his Book “The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor.”
In his memoir, Barack Obama omits the full name of his mentor, simply calling him “Frank.” Now, the truth is out: Never has a figure as deeply troubling and controversial as Frank Marshall Davis had such an impact on the development of an American president.
Although other radical influences on Obama, from Jeremiah Wright to Bill Ayers, have been scrutinized, the public knows little about Davis, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, cited by the Associated Press as an “important influence” on Obama, one whom he “looked to” not merely for “advice on living” but as a “father” figure.
While the Left has willingly dismissed Davis (with good reason), here are the indisputable, eye-opening facts: Frank Marshall Davis was a pro-Soviet, pro–Red China communist. His Communist Party USA card number, revealed in FBI files, was CP #47544. He was a prototype of the loyal Soviet patriot, so radical that the FBI placed him on the federal government’s Security Index. In the early 1950s, Davis opposed U.S. attempts to slow Stalin and Mao. He favored Red Army takeovers of Central and Eastern Europe, and communist control in Korea and Vietnam. Dutifully serving the cause, he edited and wrote for communist newspapers in both Chicago and Honolulu, courting contributors who were Soviet agents. In the 1970s, amid this dangerous political theater, Frank Marshall Davis came into Barack Obama’s life.
Aided by access to explosive declassified FBI files, Soviet archives, and Davis’s original newspaper columns, Paul Kengor explores how Obama sought out Davis and how Davis found in Obama an impressionable young man, one susceptible to Davis’s worldview that opposed American policy and traditional values while praising communist regimes. Kengor sees remnants of this worldview in Obama’s early life and even, ultimately, his presidency.
Kengor charts with definitive accuracy the progression of Davis’s communist ideas from Chicago to Hawaii. He explores how certain elements of the Obama administration’s agenda reflect Davis’s columns advocating wealth redistribution, government stimulus for “public works projects,” taxpayer-funding of universal health care, and nationalizing General Motors. Davis’s writings excoriated the “tentacles of big business,” blasted Wall Street and “greedy” millionaires, lambasted GOP tax cuts that “spare the rich,” attacked “excess profits” and oil companies, and perceived the Catholic Church as an obstacle to his vision for the state—all the while echoing Davis’s often repeated mantra for transformational and fundamental “change.”
And yet, The Communist is not unsympathetic to Davis, revealing him as something of a victim, an African- American who suffered devastating racial persecution in the Jim Crow era, steering this justly angered young man on a misguided political track. That Davis supported violent and heartless communist regimes over his own country is impossible to defend. That he was a source of inspiration to President Barack Obama is impossible to ignore.
Is Obama working to fulfill the dreams of Frank Marshall Davis? That question has been impossible to answer, since Davis’s writings and relationship with Obama have either been deliberately obscured or dismissed as irrelevant. With Paul Kengor’s The Communist, Americans can finally weigh the evidence and decide for themselves. (Amazon.com)
Who’s Your Daddy! Strawberry Fields Forever
Was Communist Mentor Intimate With Obama’s Mother?
“…Did Barack Obama’s mother pose nude for communist poet and journalist Frank Marshall Davis?
Did Obama build his political career on a fairy tale that his father was a Kenyan who grew up herding goats?
Was Obama’s goal in writing his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” to misdirect Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation?
These are questions filmmaker Joel Gilbert poses in the full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” which argues Frank Marshall Davis is the president’s biological father, not the Kenyan Barack Obama.
Gilbert reports he has recently discovered racy photos in vintage fetish and bondage magazines of Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, that he believes were taken by Davis. The photos, he says, bolster his belief that Dunham had an intimate relationship with Davis.
Gilbert has given WND a preview of a new “Breaking News” page on his documentary’s website titled “The Intimate Ann Dunham-Frank Marshall Davis Relationship.” On the page, he presents a video that shows some of the 30-plus pin-up photographs he believes Davis took of Obama’s young mother and other models in his home at 2994 Kalihi Street in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Frank Marshall Davis, pornographer
In 1968, Greenleaf Classics in San Diego published a pornographic novel titled “Sex Rebel Black: Memoirs of a Gash Gourmet,” authored by “Bob Greene,” a pen name Davis later admitted was his own.
In the sex novel that Davis claimed was autobiographical, he describes a swinging lifestyle in which he and his wife had sex numerous times with an underage girl named “Anne,” a figure very suggestive of Obama’s mother.
As Gilbert documents, Davis was a semi-professional photographer for more than 30 years, beginning when he lived in Chicago. His specialty was taking nude photographs of female models that he called “horizontal cameos.”
In a collection of Davis poems published in a book titled “Black Moods,” compiled by his biographer, University of Kansas English Professor John Edgar Tidwell, are 37 written “portraits” grouped in a section subtitled “Horizontal Cameos.” Each poem is dedicated to a different woman identified only by her first name. The second poem is dedicated to “Anne” and reads as follows:
In the gangling hours
Thin, adolescent hours
Before night runs softly
Away into the west
Anne rises wearily From her tired bed
Sitting in a chair.
In the three nude photographs initially discovered on the Internet in 2008, the young naked model is shown in a living room setting. She is posing in or around a chair, with a Christmas tree and a 1950s Hi-Fi with various jazz vinyl record albums in the background. ..”

Frank Marshall Davis
“…Frank Marshall Davis (December 31, 1905 – July 26, 1987) was an American journalist, poet, and political and labor movement activist.
He began his career writing for African American newspapers in Chicago. He moved to Atlanta where he became the editor of the paper he turned into the Atlanta Daily World before moving back to Chicago. During this time, he was outspoken about political and social issues. His poetry work was sponsored by the WPA.
In the late 1940s, he moved to Honolulu where he ran a small business. He also became involved in local labor issues where his actions were tracked by the FBI.
Davis died in 1987 in Hawaii.
Beginning at age 17, Davis attended Friends University (1923) and later Kansas State Agricultural College (now Kansas State University) (1924–27, 1929) but didn’t graduate. When Davis entered Kansas State, there were 25 other African-American students enrolled there. He studied industrial journalism. He began to write poems as the result of a class assignment and was encouraged to continue writing poetry by an English literature instructor. Frank pledged Phi Beta Sigma fraternity in 1925.
In 1927, Davis moved to Chicago, where he worked variously for the Chicago Evening Bulletin, the Chicago Whip and the Gary American, all African-American newspapers. He also wrote free-lance articles and short stories for African-American magazines. It was also during this time that Davis began a serious effort to write poetry, including his first long poem, entitled Chicago’s Congo, Sonata for an Orchestra.
In 1931, he moved to Atlanta to become an editor of a semiweekly paper. Davis transformed the Atlanta Daily World into a daily newspaper within two years of taking the job as the paper’s managing editor in 1931. Under Davis’s leadership the Atlanta Daily World became the nation’s first successful black daily.
In the pages of the paper, Davis articulated an agenda of social realism (social justice), which included appeals for racial justice in politics and economics, as well as legal justice. Davis became interested in the Communist party in 1931 during the famous Scottsboro boys and Angelo Herndon cases and championed black activism to compensate for social ills not remedied by the larger white society. In the early 1930s, he warned against blacks accepting the Depression-era remedies being pushed by communists but by 1936 Davis was listed as a contributing editor to the Spokesman, the official organ of the Youth Section of the National Negro Congress, which the government had declared a Communist front organization.
He continued to write and publish poems, which came to the attention of Frances Norton Manning, who introduced Davis to Norman Forge. Forge’s Black Cat Press brought out Davis’s first book, Black Man’s Verse, in the summer of 1935.
In 1935, Davis moved back to Chicago to take the position of managing editor of the Associated Negro Press, a news service for black newspapers, which had begun in 1919. Eventually, Davis was named executive editor for the ANP. He held the position until 1947.
During the Depression, Davis participated in the federal Works Progress Administration Writers’ Project. In 1937, he received a Julius Rosenwald Fellowship.
While in Chicago, Davis also started a photography club, worked for numerous political parties, and participated in the League of American Writers. With the encouragement of authors such as Richard Wright and Margaret Walker, Davis published in 1948 his most ambitious collection of poems, entitled 47th Street: Poems, which chronicles the varied life on Chicago’s South Side.
Davis used his newspaper platform to call for integration of the sports world, and he began to engage himself with community organizing efforts, starting a Chicago labor newspaper, The Star, toward the end of World War II. In 1947, the Spokane Daily Chronicle called the paper “a red weekly” saying that it “has most of the markings of a Communist front publication.” The Chicago Star had a goal to “promote a policy of cooperation and unity between Russia and the United States” seeking to “[avoid] the red-baiting tendencies of the mainstream press.”
In 1945, he taught one of the first jazz history courses in the United States, at the Abraham Lincoln School in Chicago.
In 1948, Davis and his second wife, who had married in 1946, moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. It is frequently reported that the move was at the suggestion of Davis’s friend Paul Robeson who praised its multiracial culture,, although in a in a 1974 interview with Black World/Negro Digest, Davis states that the move was because of a magazine article his wife had read.During this time Hawaii was going through a non-violent revolution between colored labor workers and the white elite known as the Democratic Revolution. There, Davis operated a small wholesale paper business, Oahu Papers, which burned in March 1951. In 1959, he started another similar firm, the Paradise Paper Company.
Davis also wrote a weekly column, called “Frank-ly Speaking”, for the Honolulu Record, a labor paper published by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) headed by Harry Bridges. Davis’ first column noted he was a member of the national executive board of the Civil Rights Congress, The paper had been founded in 1948 by Koji Ariyoshi , and closed in 1958. Davis’s early columns covered labor issues, but he broadened his scope to write about cultural and political issues, especially racism. He also included the history of blues and jazz in his columns.
While in Hawaii, Davis broadened from a Black Power philosophy to include what Dinesh D’Sousa calls “a wider currents of oppression and subjugation.” He became one of the first promoters of the concept of a “raceless” society based on his belief that race as a biological or social construct was illogical and a fallicy.
Davis published little poetry between 1948 and his final volume, Awakening, and Other Poems, published in 1978.
Davis authored a hard core pornographic novel, which was published in 1968 under a pseudonym. The book, titled Sex Rebel: Black, was written under the pseudonym “Bob Greene,” and was published by William Hamling’s Greenleaf Publishing Company.
Davis visited Howard University in Washington, D.C., to give a poetry reading in 1973, marking the first time he had seen the U.S. mainland in 25 years. His work began to appear in anthologies. Livin’ the Blues: Memories of a Black Journalist and Poet (1992), Black Moods: Collected Poems (2002), and Writings of Frank Marshall Davis: A Voice of the Black Press (2007) were published posthumously.
Analysis of his literary work
Davis said he was captivated early on by “the new revolutionary style called free verse. Sonnets and, in fact, all rhyme held little interest for” him. Davis claimed his “greatest single influence” was the poetry of Carl Sandburg “because of his hard, muscular poetry.”
During the middle of the 20th century, Davis set forth a radical vision that challenged the status quo. His commentary on race relations, music, literature, and American culture was precise, impassioned, and engaged. At the height of World War II, Davis questioned the nature of America’s potential postwar relations and what they meant for African Americans and the nation. His work challenged the usefulness of race as a social construct, and he eventually disavowed the idea of race altogether.
In his reviews on music, he argued that blues and jazz were responses to social conditions and served as weapons of racial integration. His book reviews complemented his radical vision by commenting on how literature reshapes one’s understanding of the world. Even his travel writings on Hawaii called for cultural pluralism and tolerance for racial and economic difference.
Legacy of political activism
Kathryn Waddell Takara has made this evaluation of Davis’s political legacy.
“No significant African American community existed in Hawai`i to provide Davis with emotional and moral support, and an expanded audience and market for his writing. Also, because he was still concerned with the issues of freedom, racism, and equality, he lacked widespread multi cultural support.One can only imagine Davis’s frustrations at his inability to become a successful writer in Hawaii after his promising beginnings in Atlanta and Chicago. He rarely complained, but he must have felt incomplete if not bitter when he found dignity but not freedom to develop his potential and lead the distinguished life to which he was accustomed. Considering the controversial subject matter of Davis’ writing, it is little wonder that some whites looked askance at his presence in the islands. He worked quietly, he wrote even when he no longer published his writings, and he talked with those who came to visit him–always seeking to present the truth of his vision, confident that social justice and human dignity would finally prevail. Indeed, despite his radical rhetoric, Davis was optimistic that good relations between ethnic groups could and would lead to a better world.
It can be argued that Davis escaped defeat like a trickster, playing dead only to arise later and win the race, although the politics of defeat were all around him. If society seemed to defeat him by denying him financial rewards, publication, and status, he continued to write prolifically. He stood by his principle that the only way to achieve social equality was to acknowledge and discuss publicly the racial and ethnic dynamics in all their complexity situated in an unjust society. He provided a bold, defiant model for writers to hold onto their convictions and articulate them.”
In 1946, Davis married Helen Canfield, a white Chicago socialite, who was 19 years his junior. They divorced in 1970, and Helen died in May 1998 in Honolulu. The couple had four daughters named Lynn, Beth, Jeanne and Jill and a son named Mark.
Davis was an avid photographer, and inspired Richard Wright’s interest in the hobby.
Davis died in 1987, in Honolulu, of a heart attack, at the age of 81. Most sources list the date of his death as 26 July. However, the Social Security Death Index gives 15 July 1987 as his date of death, as does his college fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma.
Davis and Barack Obama

In his memoir Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama wrote about “Frank”, a friend of his grandfather’s. “Frank” told Obama that he and Stanley (Obama’s maternal grandfather) both had grown up only 50 miles apart, near Wichita, although they did not meet until Hawaii. He described the way race relations were back then, including Jim Crow, and his view that there had been little progress since then. As Obama remembered, “It made me smile, thinking back on Frank and his old Black Power, dashiki self. In some ways he was as incurable as my mother, as certain in his faith, living in the same sixties time warp that Hawaii had created.” Obama also remembered Frank later in life when he took a job in South Chicago as a community organizer and took some time one day to visit the areas where Frank had lived and wrote in his book, “I imagined Frank in a baggy suit and wide lapels, standing in front of the old Regal Theatre, waiting to see Duke or Ella emerge from a gig.” 
The London Telegraph headlined that Davis, an “alleged communist” was an “early influence” on the young Obama. Jerome Corsi also made controversial allegations of the influence of Davis in his book The Obama Nation. A rebuttal released by Obama’s presidential campaign, entitled Unfit for Publication, confirmed that “Frank” was Frank Marshall Davis, but disputes those claims about the nature of their relationship.
