The mother of Senator Barack Obama Stanley Ann Dunham, also known as Ann Dunham, was an American anthropologist and left-wing social activist. She was born in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to Stanley and Madelyn Dunham. Her father was a furniture salesman in downtown Seattle, Washington, and her mother worked for a bank. After a year living in Seattle, her family moved to Mercer Island, Washington, in 1956 so 13-year old Ann could attend the Mercer Island High School that had just opened. At the school she was on the debate team and graduated in 1960.
Barack Obama, Sr. left Ann and their son in 1963 to attend Harvard in Boston. Press reports claim Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. were divorced around this time; however, no evidence has yet been presented to show they were ever married. The senior Obama obtained a masters degree in economics at Harvard and returned to Kenya in 1965 where he obtained a position in the Kenyan government. He was killed in an automobile accident in 1982.
Two years later, when her son was five, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian oil manager and practicing Muslim whom she met at the university. In 1967 they moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. While in Indonesia, Ann got a job at the American embassy teaching English.
Barack’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro was born in Indonesia. Ann, Barack and his sister Maya moved back to Hawaii. Ann Dunham soon returned to Indonesia with Maya but divorced Soetoro in the late 1970s.
Dunham traveled around the world, pursuing a career in rural development that took her to Ghana, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal and Bangladesh. In 1986, Ann Dunham worked on a developmental project in Pakistan. Later that year, Ann and her daughter traveled the Silk Road in China. In 1992, she earned a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Hawaii. Her dissertation, ‘Peasant blacksmithing in Indonesia: Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds,’ was 1067 pages long. She worked for the Ford Foundation and promoted Microlending.
During Obama’s campaign for the 2008 presidential election, he portrayed his mother as a conservative girl from Kansas; however in reality she was a radical leftist and cultural Marxist. She lived in the Seattle area; spending her teenage years in Seattle coffee shops with other young radical leftist. Obama claims his mother’s family were conservative Methodists or Baptists from Kansas. However his mother’s parents were members of a left-wing Unitarian church near Seattle. The church located in Bellevue, Washington was nicknamed ‘the little red church,’ because of its communist leanings.
The school Ann attended, Mercer Island High School, was a hotbed of pro-Marxist radical teachers. John Stenhouse, board member, told the House Un-American Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of the Communist Party USA and this school has a number of Marxists on its staff. Two teachers at this school, Val Foubert and Jim Wichterman, both Frankfurt School style Marxists, taught a critical theory curriculum to students which included; rejection of societal norms, attacks on Christianity, the traditional family, and assigned readings by Karl Marx. The hallway between Foubert’s and Wichterman classrooms was some times called ‘anarchy ally.’Dunham has been described by her friends as ‘a fellow traveler’ meaning ‘a communist sympathizer.’

Valjean Philip Foubert was born on May 29, 1924 in Wenatchee, Washington. He died at age 82, in the early morning of Friday, March 9, 2007, at home in family hospice care in Federal Way, Washington. He sailed off peacefully one early morning, having folded his own arms across his chest in a voluntary gesture of finality.
Family and friends, including former students from fifty years ago, celebrated his life at a Memorial Service in Issaquah, Washington, before his burial at Sunset Hills Cemetery in Bellevue, on March 13, 2007. A military Honor Guard saluted his U.S. Army service in World War II with traditional burial honors, including the ceremonial presentation of the U.S. Flag, and the playing of 'Taps.' There were no dry eyes: 'Taps' can do that to you
For four years on Mercer Island, Stanley Ann Dunham impressed her high-school classmates with a wickedly sharp wit. She was an "intellectual rebel" with a fledgling beatnik sensibility that would eventually take her around the globe.
But shortly after high-school graduation in 1960 she vanished from the Seattle area, and would have been little more than a foggy memory to most — if not for a son she had just a year later: Barack Obama.
