Storyline

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama's foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama's family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama "autobiography," offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped our 44th President's life and politics. In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama's life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama's world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was ... Written by Joel Gilbert

Bamboozled!
5 October 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This documentary is astonishing. Director Joel Gilbert has collected an impressive amount of information to discredit the Obama campaign. At first sight this work appears a belligerent work of fiction, but watching the incredibly detailed evidence slowly go by, there can be no question that president Obama is hiding his true origin.

Is Obama, as he claims himself, really the multicultural prodigy son of a Kenyan goat herder immigrant? Or is someone else his father?

Joel Gilbert makes an impressive case against what we thought was true. Obama looks nothing like his alleged relatives in Kenya, but has all the features, in youth and maturity, of an American communist party member. His grandfather was not a furniture salesmen, as the 2008 campaign led us believe, but a CIA agent. And his real father,... well, you'll just have to watch the documentary to see for yourself.

An impressive work of fact.

The score is a bit repetitive, and the fairly poor voice-over "mockumentary style" seems a requirement to avoid or reduce future legal hassle. In the meantime this film is the #1 selling DVD on Amazon. It's explosive and brings a lot of new evidence to the general public. Hope for change is exposed as a fraud for socialism.
