President Obama’s own half brother is having a hard time choking down the stink Obama puts out to make himself appear in a more favorable light. The sibling is set to release a book correcting all the false claims Obama made in his book, “Dreams From My Father.”
Obama and his half brother, Mark Obama Ndesandjo, share the same father but have different white American mothers. As he describes in his book to be released in February, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, Ndesandjo describes that the two’s interactions were few and far between, but when they did get together they didn’t seem to see eye to eye.
Obama’s half brother recalled one of his interactions with the president in an earlier incident saying, “Barack thought I was too white and I thought he was too black.” Ndesandjo went on to explain, “He was an American searching for his African roots, I was a Kenyan, I’m an American but I was living in Kenya, searching for my white roots.”
When he was asked about the status of the relationship he has with his brother he conveyed, “Right now it’s cold and I think part of the reason is because of my writing. My writing has alienated some people in my family.” It’s no wonder, as the man is essentially exposing Obama and calling him a liar. The boys, despite sharing the same father, didn’t see each other much when they were younger, and the relationship is as rocky as ever.
Seeing how Obama used his book as a stepping stone to gain political attention, the president’s, “relatives have not universally welcomed his airing of private matters in public.” Although Ndesandjo claims, “I hope that my brother and I can really hug each other after he’s president and we can be a family again,” it does not seem likely. After all, he is about to expose Obama as the liar we all know him to be.
In his new book, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, he seeks to set the record straight. Like his previous book, written just four years prior, Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love in the East, Ndesandjo attempts to raise awareness for domestic abuse once again recalling the physical abuse his and Obama’s father inflicted on his mother. This, like Obama’s story, no one disputes.
The AP writes:
“In his new book, Ndesandjo recalls alcohol-fueled beatings meted out by his father to his mother. He recounts one incident in which his father held a knife to his mother’s throat because she took out a restraining order against him.”
Ndesandjo does have a few other corrections to make to Obama’s statements though. As the book is set to contain an appendix that chronologically corrects the false claims made in Obama’s book, Dreams from my Father, Ndesandjo states that, “I wanted to bring it up because first of all I wanted the record to be straight. I wanted to tell my own story, not let people tell it for me,” referring to Obama’s ghost writers.
He conveys that the appendix is, “a correction. A lot of the stuff that Barack wrote is wrong in that book and I can understand that because to me for him the book was a tool for fashioning an identity and he was using composites.”
After Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, filed for divorce from the alcoholic and abusive man, he returned to his home country of Kenya where he met Ndesandjo’s mother. While there, Ndesandjo and his older brother, who subsequently died in a motorcycle accident, were born.
Since that time, Ndesandjo has move to Shenzhen, China, just outside of Hong Kong where he lives with his native wife. After meeting her, he learned the Chinese language and became deeply intrigued by Chinese culture. He has learned things such as poetry and brush calligraphy.
He also volunteers as a piano teacher giving free lessons at a local orphanage. Along with this, he has started a charity that uses art to help disadvantaged kids. Ndesandjo claims that some of the books proceeds will be donated to various charities, including his own.
Is there really any belief Obama isn’t a compulsive liar by now?
