Ohio Voters Receive A Fun, Free Gift: One Million Anti-Obama DVDs

Is Frank Marshall Davis Obama's real dad?

We’re getting closer and closer to the time when we’ll all go to the polls and decide the fate of the USA (for the next four years, anyway). Will it be Mitt Romney or Barack Obama? In case you’re still on the fence about who you’ll be voting for (and you live in Ohio) you might be receiving a free DVD in the mail to help you sort it all out.

An anti-Obama film titled Dreams From My Real Father has been mailed out to over one million voters. All you need to do to get your hands on a free copy of the film is be an Ohio resident. This film isn’t to be confused with the theatrically released 2016: Obama’s America by Dinesh D’Souza, where the conservative commentator makes an argument against the POTUS that you can either accept or decline, and then go about your merry day. This film makes a new (unsubstantiated) claim that Chicago activist and communist Frank Marshall Davis is Obama’s real father.

The film’s director and producer, Joel Gilbert, told Buzzfeed that they’re distributing as many copies as they can in an effort to persuade on-the-fence voters before election time.

“We’re sending out bulk mailings to many states,” Gilbert said. “Probably Illinois, New York, Florida, Arizona, Louisiana, we’ll hit every state if we can to stimulate and force the national media to cover the story.”

Of course, there are questions of money. How could Gilbert and company afford to make the film and distribute millions of copies for free?

“We’ve made 12 successful films and we are also making current revenue on the current film,” he said. So basically, none of our business. But hey, it’s a free country. Gilbert can do as he pleases.

Davis lived part of his life in Hawaii, and does show up in Obama’s own memoir Dreams From My Father as an old man. The idea that he could be Obama’s real father has proven to be a popular theory in some fringe conservative circles, because if true, it would prove that Obama is really a communist. Or something. We don’t know what it would prove. Probably nothing.

Still, it’s one of the more interesting theories out there without a shred of proof whatsoever.

Do you think that Obama is a communist?

    Frank Marshall Davis was 55 years old in 1960.
    The author of this article failed to tell the reader about all the circumstantial evidence that points to Davis being the father. This movie is more accurate than the book, "Dreams from my father". BTW Obama deleted all reference to Frank Marshall Davis in the audiobook. But if you think Obama looks more like Obama Sr. than Davis that's fine.

    A short, hopefully diplomatic defense for myself: I did post the trailer and linked to the main website, both of which present the theory. Yes, there is circumstantial evidence, but it's just that – circumstantial. There isn't hard proof, just speculation. If proof ever does surface, we WILL report on it.

    Fact: Frank Marshall Davis was Obama's "mentor" for 8 years in Hawaii.
    Fact: Frank Marshall Davis was a card carrying member of the Communist Party (card number 47544).

    Whether you buy into the circumstantial evidence or not of Frank being his real father, the above two facts should be cause for concern for anyone who believes in what this country was built on.

    The movie takes you along an entire life of questionable associations and later appointees/Czars. Once you watch the movie, it becomes clear why socialist policies and tactics such as wealth redistribution, class warfare, and media intimidation are integral parts of this administration.

    Get to know Frank Marshall Davis, and it all becomes clear:

    Hello, Dustin Michael Carlson …

    The link I placed in my comment above will lead you to a free software download, the very same software with the same kind of proof the FBI has in identifying people: graphic computer facial analysis. Try it. It'll only take about 30 minutes of your time. Then please, come back and tell me of your findings.

    With respect, facial recognition software relating to the determination of parentage is a sketchy topic. Without hard DNA evidence, it's still circumstantial. That said, it might be PERSUASIVE, but that doesn't make it PROOF. There is a crucial difference.

    There's no way anyone could go through this exercise and conclude that Obama Sr is Obama's Father. It's impossible no matter WHO does it.

    HOW YOU CAN PROVE TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS THAT BARACK OBAMA HAS LIED ABOUT HIS PAST AND IS ACTUALLY THE SON OF FBI-RECORDED COMMUNIST ACTIVIST.

    Joel Gilbert's been shown to be a charlatan and his film to be full of lies:

    http://barackryphal.blogspot.com/

    For instance, Gilbert claims that Obama's mother posed for nude pictures in 1960…and then he shows pictures he took from 1958 magazines. He suggests that Frank Marshall Davis wrote about Ann Dunham in a memoir, and then omits the overwhelming context that shows he wasn't talking about her. He details private situations he couldn't possibly know about, he talks about evidence that doesn't appear in the film, and he repeats old internet rumors he clearly didn't bother to factcheck.

    What's more, he's done all this twice before. Releasing a conspiracy theory movie that he advertises as a "documentary," claiming that he's discovered shocking new evidence, and then later on changing his tune and claiming that it's just a "spoof."

    "The author of this article failed to tell the reader about all the circumstantial evidence that points to Davis being the father."

    What circumstantial evidence? The nude photos were appearing in magazines before Ann ever moved to Hawaii. The "Anne" described in Davis' memoir is a Jamaican 13-year-old he knew in Chicago before WWII. The conversations the movie portrays between various people are just made-up by the director. And Obama looks more like Sammy Davis Jr than Frank Marshall Davis, but that doesn't make him the son of a Rat Pack member.

    "without a shred of proof whatsoever".. Seems to me that the documentary provides LOTS of shreds of proof… has the writer even seen it? It seems whoever did the documentary did a lot more research on Obama's past than I have ever seen put together by any media outlet. The argument is circumstantial, as any such argument must be WITHOUT A DNA TEST. What is the proof that Obama Sr. is the father? The documentary challenges what is taken as proof on that, and the media SHOULD be investigating altered photos, etc. and how his past has been masked in many instances. Anyone who watches the DVD is faced with an argument that is based on drawing lines between facts. Who is vetting these facts? Apparently the job of the journalist has to be done by others these days.
