Most, if not all, psychologists would say we are a product of our experiences. A good case can be made that this commonly accepted belief applies to our president.
Never before in our history has so little been known about a president elect and we can blame mainstream media for those sins of omission. However, there was lots available to us outside media.
Obama's past clearly explains his behavior as president. The best explanation comes from a reputable author of a documentary titled "2016: Obama's America." That man would be Dinesh D'Souza.
As I viewed the movie currently playing all over the country as a blockbuster, there wasn't an empty seat in the house at the Hays theater.
Actually, I was familiar with most facts presented as far back as 2008, but D'Souza puts his thumb on the problem in a unique way that explains Obama's behavior as president based on past experiences.
It's all about growing up exposed to "radicalism" that followed Obama to college, then as a community organizer in Chicago, even as an Illinois state senator. Trust me when I say the facts are there and documented by other writers as well for all to see.
Obama admits to "radical" behavior in his book "Dreams of My Father." He said he did drugs and alcohol, sought out other radical students, even Marxist professors.
Much can be explained by knowing something about Obama's father. His father abandoned him before birth, was a liar, alcoholic and polygamist. Obama Sr. left Obama Jr. and his white mother in Hawaii to go to Harvard. His father was from Kenya originally and was on a student visa. In spite of Obama Sr.'s shortcomings, Obama appears to be obsessed with the man.
Obama Sr. eventually died in an alcohol related auto accident. Before that happened, Obama's parents divorced, and his mother married an Indonesian. It was at this time Obama was exposed to Islam and the Quran while living in Jakarta.
Obama Sr.'s political beliefs are a huge part of this story. In his writings it is clear he was anti American, anti white, anti western, anti Israel, and anti colonial while believing in such ideologies as socialism and communism. Strange as it may seem, Obama's mother shared Sr. Obama's beliefs and impressed those beliefs on her son even following their divorce.
Following his mother's second divorce, Obama was again abandoned and sent back to Hawaii from Indonesia by the mother to live with grandparents. Obama's life experiences were atypical, to say the least.
At age 10 and many subsequent years following, Obama was mentored in Hawaii by card caring Communist Frank Davis, mentioned often in Obama's book.
Due to space limitations I can't elaborate, but we all need to know Obama associated with a bunch of radicals on the way to becoming president. There was Professor Said and Professor Unger and an American terrorist by the name of William Ayers. Talk about radicals. And then there was Obama's 20 year pastor Rev. Wright who preached g.d. America.
A key component in all of this is that Obama's associates were all anti-colonial with the radical belief that prospering nations were colonizing third world countries to steal their wealth and could care less in developing those nations, consequently, the imperialistic invaders in the world need to be brought down to size, including America with its policy of nation building.
Seems D'Souza makes sense about Obama's many irresponsible policies and agendas that fit right in with his past indoctrination. Maybe our worst recovery since the Great Depression isn't by accident.
