In 2008, America elected a man to be President of the United States because of an ill-defined promise of hope, change and the fundamental transformation of our county.
Now, 4 years later, gas prices are up over 100 percent. Food stamp recipients have increased 50 percent to nearly 48 million. Household income is down over $4000.00 per family. Millions of Americans are not even counted as "unemployed" because they have simply given up finding work.
It might finally be time to learn the closely guarded history of the man who now seeks to, in the words of his own political campaign, "Finish The Job."
The film uses the President’s own words, along with proven facts and reasoned logic in an attempt to fill in the many missing pieces in Obama's life story. President Obama has spent millions of dollars in legal fees attempting to prevent the release of his childhood, health and college records.
According to Joel Gilbert, the film’s writer and director, “The information (in the documentary) is unimpeachable; it's absolute fact that has been established through many different authors. But for the first time, it's been put together in a cohesive narrative.”
According to his own autobiography, Barack Obama arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. He has never identified a cathartic moment when he changed this belief system, instilled into him by his mother, father and grandparents, into a belief in American free-market Capitalism.
"Dreams From My Real Father" presents an alternative theory of what shaped Obama’s life and politics. In an attempt to fill in the numerous gaps in Obama’s history, the film makes the case that Obama’s “real father” was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist on an FBI arrest list who sought the fundamental transformation of America.
Frank Marshall Davis, referred to as "Frank" in the print version of Obama's autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," was mentioned 22 times by name and referenced by pronoun on numerous other occasions.
Whether his “real” father or simply a father figure and mentor, Davis was a dominant influence during Obama’s formative years.
“To understand Obama’s plan to "fundamentally transform America,” director Gilbert concludes, “the question is 'Who is the real father?' If you compare Obama's "Dreams from My Father" to my "Dreams from My Real Father," I think everyone will agree that mine is much closer to the reality than Obama's, which is largely a fairy tale.”
