JAKARTA, INDONESIA, March 7, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – As a young child in Indonesia, Barack Obama’s nanny was a transgender “woman” who walked around his home in female clothing and let the future president see him trying on lipstick. 

In 1969, “Evie” – who was born a man with the name Turdi – worked as a cook when he met Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. (Turdi/Evie, like many Indonesians, goes only by one name.) Dunham had moved to the nation’s capital of Jakarta to live with her second husband, Lolo Soetoro.

For two years, Turdi watched “Barry”, as Obama was called, and his younger half-sister, Maya Soetoro, at their home in Jakarta’s Menteng neighborhood.

Turdi was well-known in the area. The New York Times described the nanny as “an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia’s relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher.” Turdi later danced in the streets as part of a group of transvestites called the “Fantastic Dolls.”

Rudy Yara, who still lives across the street from Obama’s childhood home, says Turdi “was a nice person and was always patient and caring in keeping young Barry.” The Associated Press reports, “Neighbors recalled that they often saw Evie leave the house in the evening fully made up and dressed in drag.”

“I never let [Barack] see me wearing women’s clothes,” Turdi insisted. “But he did see me trying on his mother’s lipstick sometimes. That used to really crack him up.”

After Turdi found a transgender friend badly beaten in 1985, he gave away his makeup and dresses and has lived outwardly as a man, attending mosque five times a day. The AP reported Turdi/”Evie,” who quit school in the third grade, “now lives in a closet-sized hovel” and scrubs laundry for food. He still self-identifies as a woman.

“It’s a story you couldn’t make up,” Americans for Truth President Peter LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews.com. “Trying to discover who the real Obama is like peeling an onion, and the more you peel away, the more bizarre it is.”

“Now we know there is yet another person with an aberrant, disordered lifestyle in young Barack Obama’s life. We knew about Frank Marshall Davis before,” he said, “a Communist and a perverted man.”

The Associated Press reported the White House had no comment about the president’s onetime caretaker.

Can that childhood association explain Barack Obama’s promotion of the transgender political agenda, a cause he did not mention during the 2008 campaign?

“There’s no way of knowing what his [Turdi’s] interaction was with Obama,” LaBarbera said, but “I think it’s safe to say that when you’re exposed to radical and aberrant and disordered influences as a young man, you’re open to more radical agendas and outlooks later in life.”

“It helps form a radical outlook on life, which Obama certainly has,” LaBarbera stated.

President Obama has held the first-ever White House conference on transgender issues in April 2011. He made the first transgender presidential appointment, naming “Amanda” Simpson to a post in the Commerce Department.

Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis updated the department’s harassment policy in 2011 to ban “contractors at every level” from engaging in any behavior that may cause “offense” on the basis of “gender identity.” And the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) passed a rule requiring landlords who accept Section 8 to rent their homes to transgender tenants. HUD announced, although the Fair Housing Act “does not specifically cover sexual orientation- or gender identity-based discrimination, it may still cover them in other ways. For example, gender-identity discrimination may be seen as sex discrimination.” 

Under new rules published in 2011, immigration officials must provide “hormone therapy” to transgender illegal immigrants facing deportation.

“The transgender agenda is the Brave New World, even within the larger LGBTQ agenda,” LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews.

“I certainly think Obama, much more so than anyone he’s ever going to run against, will mainstream this deviance with the power he has in the federal government,” he said.

Homosexual activists have increased their promotion of transgender issues since the 2008 election, including lobbying for inclusion of sex-change operations under the health care reform law.

LaBarbera says if Obama wins a second term, “look for the transgenders to be very active.”

“They’ll lay low now,” he said. “After the election is when you’ll see the action.”
