In Memory of Madelyn Payne Dunham

In Memory of Madelyn Payne Dunham (October 26, 1922-November 2, 2008)

President-elect Barack Hussein Obama spent time in Hawaii honoring the memory of his grandmother who raised him, and scattering her ashes at Länaçi Lookout on Oahu’s rugged southeast coastline on Tuesday. Shortly after she died, Barrack Husein said: “She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility. She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances.”

Little was known about her except that she was sometimes afraid of some black men she saw on the streets. We may never know why.

Twelve days before the election, Obama was in Hawaii visiting his elderly Grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who was 86 years old. Barrack Husein’s half-sister,  Maya Soetoro-Ng, was with her when she died, sources say.
It is unknown if photos were taken of her and her grandchildren recently. 
Madelyn was perhaps the only American who could have shared early stories about Barrack Hussein. 

She died quietly while no one really knew very much about her. It is sad because she could have shared so much with the American public about who her grandson really was.

Maya has not spoken publically about her grandmother’s death. Maya’s name was included, however, as part of a  “joint” statement that her half-brother gave the press announcing Madelyn’s death from his campaign in North Carolina.
Barrack Hussein told the press that his grandmother had died peacefully after a battle with cancer.

 In an ABC’s Good Morning America interview prior to Madelyn’s death, Barrack Hussein had said: “Without going through the details too much, she’s gravely ill. We weren’t sure and I’m still not sure whether she makes it to Election Day.”   

 Sadly, she did not make it. Obama announced the death of his maternal white Grandmother on the day before the election.  
A CNN report quoted Barrack Hussein’s statement at a rally in Charlotte: “she has gone home and she died peacefully in her sleep with my sister at her side… I’m not going to talk about it long because it’s hard to talk about.”  

 It is unclear exactly what Barrack Hussein meant. Did he mean that she had gone to her house after being somewhere, or did it mean  she has gone to heaven?  

 Though she was old, no illness had been publically mentioned prior to her last visit with her grandson, only that she could no longer travel and it was uncertain how long she would live. Those are the sad facts. 

 No one would have known she was suffering from cancer, only that her health had deteriorated after recently breaking a hip.  

With the legitimacy of Sen. Barack Obama’s birth certificate a focus of intense speculation, and Hawaii’s Governor   placing it under seal after he visited his grandmother, the Governor said that the original doctor-generated and hospital-released birth certificate was on file with the state’s health department and would be released to the press if Barrack Hussein requested. So far, nothing has changed.

Barrack Hussein spoke kindly of his grandmother at his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. : “She’s the one who put off buying a new car or a new dress for herself so that I could have a better life,” he said 

 Barrack Hussein returned to Hawaii this week to scatter his white grandmother’s ashes over Oahu’s rugged coastline.

    Challenge, can anyone prove this wrong?:–

    1. Constitution Article II requires USA President to be “natural born citizen”.

    2. BHO’s website admits his dad was Kenyan/British, not American, citizen when BHO was born.

    3. BHO is therefore not a “natural born citizen” (irrespective of Hawaiian birth or whether he may be a 14th Amendment “citizen” of USA) — as confirmed in the Senate’s own McCain qualification resolution agreed to by BHO.

    4. Supreme Court has already docketed two upcoming conferences, 1/9/09 and 1/16/09 — between dates Congress counts electoral votes (1/8/09) and Presidential inauguration (1/20/09) — to address Berg Case and fashion relief on BHO’s eligibility to be President.

    5. Since no facts are in dispute, Supreme Court rules on Summary Judgment to enjoin BHO’s inauguration as President.

    6. Therefore, BHO is not inaugurated as President.

    7. Vice President Elect Biden is inaugurated Acting President under the 20th Amendment to serve until new President is determined — the procedure for which determination to be set out by Congress and/or the Supreme Court so long as in conformance with the Constitution.
