On October 25, 2014, I published a column titled, “Barack Obama: Grand Caliph of Islam,” in which I conjectured that Obama’s long term career goal, after completing his second term in the Oval Office, may be to return to the land of his forefathers and, within a few short years, run for president of Kenya. Although most Americans would expect Obama to do almost anything to establish his place in history, many readers scoffed at the suggestion, saying that it was illogical to even suggest that anyone would want to become president of a small East African country after serving two terms as president of the richest, most powerful nation on Earth. But was that really so farfetched? And what led me to arrive at that conclusion? Let’s connect a few dots.
First, if we can take Obama at his word regarding his parentage, he was born on August 4, 1961, to an American mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, and Barack Obama, Sr., a citizen of British East Africa (Kenya), a British colony. Thus, if Obama is to be believed, it is indisputable that he was born with dual US-Kenyan citizenship. However, after Kenya won its independence from Great Britain on December 12, 1963, the newly-adopted constitution failed to recognize permanent dual citizenship, requiring all those of dual nationality to decide by date-certain which country they wished to affiliate with. And since there is no evidence that Obama has ever renounced the American portion of his dual citizenship, under Chapter VI, Section 97 of the 1963 constitution he automatically lost the Kenyan portion of his dual citizenship on August 4, 1984.
Understanding that Obama is a man motivated primarily by delusions of grandeur, it leads one to ask: how could such a man ever find happiness in any position in which he was not the center of attention, worshipped and adored by people around the world? And what could he possibly do that would allow him to carve out a niche for himself in world history greater than the presidency of the United States? Allow me to speculate once again that, after spending eight years in the White House attempting to “fundamentally transform” the greatest, most powerful nation on Earth, doing irreparable damage to our country in the process and earning the well-deserved title of “Worst President in American History,” it is entirely conceivable that he might wish to live out his years in Kenya where he is universally worshiped and adored.
Impossible you say? Perhaps. But I would argue that what I suggest is no more far-fetched than the notion that an inexperienced, pot-smoking, cocaine sniffing, red-diapered, black agitator from Chicago… a man whose only discernible talent is the ability to read someone else’s words from a teleprompter and make them sound convincing… could plan and implement a career path that would transport him from the leadership of a racially-oriented “community organizer” scam in Chicago to the presidency of the United States in just 12 short years.
When Obama leaves office in January 2017, he will be just 55 years, 6 months, and 16 days old, a relatively young man, but a man burdened by an acute case of narcissistic personality disorder. The psychiatric division of the Mayo Clinic defines narcissistic personality disorder as “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they are superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.”
Some have argued that the presidency of Kenya is far too humble a position for Obama, a man who thinks only in the most grandiose terms. In response, I would venture a guess that, given his popularity among black Africans and with Muslims around the world, his long term agenda would have him emigrating to Kenya, running for president, and then proceeding to unite all of sub-Saharan Africa and all of Muslim North Africa, into a single Islamic confederation… a massive Islamic caliphate with himself as Grand Caliph.
A man who hates the U.S, military as much as Obama does, yet finds no contradiction in thinking of himself as commander in chief of the largest and most lethal military force on Earth, would have no problem seeing himself as the Grand Caliph of the entire Islamic world. So what steps has he taken to turn his outsized ambition into reality?
In spite of having lost his Kenyan citizenship in August 1984, Obama spent some $24 million in U.S. foreign aid funds during fiscal year 2010 in support of a “yes” vote on a revised Kenyan constitution. So, one might ask, what possible interest could a U.S. president possibly have in rewriting the constitution of a small country in east Africa, unless it was a revision that would reinstate his dual US-Kenyan citizenship and make it possible for him to run for president of that country?
The people of Kenya approved their new constitution on Obama’s 49th birthday, August 4, 2010 (don’t you just hate it when that happens?). Chapter 3, Section 14 of the revised constitution provides that, “A person is a citizen by birth if on the day of the person’s birth, whether or not the person is born in Kenya, either the mother or father of the person is a citizen (of Kenya).” On that day, Barack Obama became a “citizen by birth,” of Kenya. So, other than his successful effort to assist the people of Kenya in the adoption of a new constitution, what additional steps has he taken to turn his great ambition into a realistic possibility?
According to a February 21, 2015, article in WorldNetDaily (WND), Obama is spending an additional $250 million… courtesy of the American taxpayer… sending advisors to Kenya for the purpose of assisting in the “simultaneous expansion of healthcare services and the ongoing decentralization of the national government.” WND quotes a document seeking to recruit the right bureaucrat to implement this foreign aid boondoggle… the largest in sub-Saharan Africa and the seventh largest in the world… by repeating Obama’s longtime goal of establishing “a social healthcare system to enable equitable provision of health care to all Kenyan citizens.”
With the raging “success” of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare,” it is only logical to assume that he would want to do for the people of Kenya exactly what he has done for (to?) the American people. Where better to inflict the same sort of bureaucratic health care disaster than in an African country where he just happens to hold lifetime citizenship?
According to the plan, the successful candidate, working out of USAID’s Office of Population and Health in Nairobi, “will advise USAID/Kenya on all aspects of family planning (spending U.S. taxpayer dollars in support of abortion), maternal and child health, nutrition (an obvious ploy to introduce Kenyans to their future First Lady), tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV/AIDS.”
WND reports that, “The advisor will be tasked with finding solutions to obstacles Kenyans face in receiving health care, particularly ‘public sector maternity and primary health care services,’ which became free for Kenyans in June 2013.” One can only assume that it is Obama’s way of using Kenya as a social laboratory… experimenting with a single-payer system and avoiding the need for health care “exchanges” that have made Obamacare such a nightmare for Americans.
According to the recruiting document, “An estimated 30 percent of people now receiving care in public facilities could afford to use private services if they had insurance. Shifting them would allow the government to focus public sector resources on the poorest and most vulnerable citizens”… coincidentally, the very same poor, needy, and uneducated people whose allegiance Obama would need in his campaign for the presidency of Kenya.
But that only insures Obama’s election in Kenya. Beyond that, what could he possibly have in mind that would insure his place in history? Looking at a map of Africa, with some forty-six countries having significant Muslim populations, the total Muslim population of Africa in 2010 was estimated to be 435.24 million… thirty-six percent more people than the entire population of the United States… and is expected to grow to an unsustainable 539.08 million people by 2020 when Obama will have been out of office for just four years.
A February 17, 2015 report by Liberty Voice reminds us that, since 2009, the Nigerian terror group, Boko Haram, has murdered more than 5,000 Nigerians and has abducted more than 500 others: men, women, and children. Included among those abducted are 276 teenage girls, aged 16-18, who were abducted from the town of Chibok in April 2014. Of the 276 girls kidnapped, some 57 have escaped. The remaining 219 remain captives of Boko Haram where they are raped, tortured, used as sexual barter, and sold into slavery.
Given the ability of terror groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram to spread terror among peace-loving peoples, it is easy to see how an entire continent, with well over a half billion Muslims, would be ripe for conquest and radicalization. The only thing they lack is a charismatic leader, a man worshiped and adored by Muslims around the globe.
These are people who have no qualms whatsoever about raping, murdering, or burying children alive; depriving women of all human rights; beheading Christians, Jews, and apostate Muslims; or burning captive enemy fighters alive. Nevertheless, it appears that no atrocity, no matter how unspeakable, is sufficient to cause Obama to identify the enemy for who he is. Is it any wonder, then, that he steadfastly refuses to offend even the vilest of the vile, refusing to use the terms “Islamic terrorists” or “radical jihadists?”
Either his narcissistic personality disorder is so acute that he is simply indifferent to human suffering, or he is looking to the future when he will need the goodwill of every Muslim in Africa to insure his place as the single most powerful black man in recorded history? So think about it. It’s time to start connecting the dots. | February 28, 2015
