Obamas College years Pt1

“The second time I went out to California to attend Mohammad Hassan Chandoo’s graduation from Occidental College, Obama was enjoying the lavish lifestyle being financed by his friend and roommate at the time - Hassan Chandoo. The wealthy patron provided Obama access to big houses, lavish parties & had him dressed in the slickest clothes. I could have sworn they were both Gay & wealthy.”

Those were some of the initial observations by Dr. John C. Drew, PhD, on his second encounter with Barack Obama who was attending Occidental College at the time.

Much has been speculated about Barack Obama’s college days and with good reason. These years are a mystery in his past. We know very little other than that by many account witnesses, many of his early days in college were reminiscent of the type of partying and drug use that took place inside the walls of the famed NYC nightclub; Studio 54.

There is however Dr. John C. Drew and his chance encounter with Obama at Occidental College. A chance encounter because the only reason that Barack Obama chose to attend the small Liberal Arts College was because of a girl he met from Brentwood while vacationing in Hawaii.

Drew who described himself as an enemy of the government and a Marxist during his days in college, claims that not only was Obama part of the “brotherhood & revolution” - he embraced Marxist-Leninism. He was basically a hard-core Marxist in college.

That was the reason Drew had flown out to Occidental College in the first place. It appears that the girl that Drew was dating at the time also knew Obama. She wanted Drew to meet this man that shared similar philosophical views. Barry, as he preferred to be called in those days - would later get together with Drew & his girlfriend to discuss Marxism over drinks and dinner and a lot of partying afterwards. Some of the revelations that came to light during this interview session with Obama are startling to say the least.

One of the interesting observations that Drew made during his visits with Obama was the lack or presence of African Americans within Obama’s circle of friends. “I got the sense that Obama did not have deep roots in the African American community”.

Drew also thought that Obama was money hungry and may have married Michelle because he thought she was rich based on the fact that her brother was a wealthy investment banker.

On his second trip to California, Drew says that he went out to meet with Obama and some school professors to make the case against Marxism being a good fit in the US. He recalls that even after presenting Obama with evidence on his theory, Obama turned against him. He let me know in so many words that he was an intense Marxist proponent.

Drew says that Obama was in complete 100% agreement with his Marxist college professors who wanted a revolution in this country to overturn the power structure. He was consumed with the notion of wealth redistribution & more affirmative action programs to bring about less inequality and more income equality. He espoused the John Rawls Theory of Justice and his ‘veil of ignorance theory.

This "veil" is one that essentially blinds people to all facts about themselves that might cloud what notion of justice is developed.

"No one knows his place in society, his class position or social status, nor does anyone know his fortune in the distribution of natural assets and abilities, his intelligence, strength, and the like. I shall even assume that the parties do not know their conceptions of the good or their special psychological propensities. The principles of justice are chosen behind a veil of ignorance."

Drew saw Obama as a young man in a hurry. Soon after his friend Hassan Chandoo graduated, Obama realized that his fancy & rich lifestyle would not be financed anymore. That is when he decided to move east and attend Columbia University. This is where his college days became hazy. No one that attended Columbia during that same period of time can recall much about the slim black kid with the half afro.

From there Obama eventually moved on to Harvard and after graduating, headed out to Chicago to become a Community Organizer. A move that Drew says is a logical career step for a revolutionary coming out colleges like Occidental and Columbia in those days. Next step in the progression was to become a college professor and finally and adjunct professor at the university of Chicago where he used his position to argue on behalf of the socialist perspective & revolution.

There he talked about how the Constitution guarantees negative liberties but not the positive liberties that you would see in a society that redistributes its wealth so that it was more equal.

After his stint as an adjunct professor he took the next step in the natural progression of an ideologue. He entered the world of politics with the blessing of Alice Palmer and kicked off his political career in the living room of one Bill Ayers.

So as we get a glimpse at what Barack Obama was like during those early days, we begin to get a clear picture of how he is continuing with ideologies that he was so passionate about.

We can begin to understand his dislike for the rich and his decision to tax anyone making over $250,000. We begin to understand why he would say that he would rather be a good one-term President than sell-out his principles. The guilt of not being able to move the Progressive cause forward would be too much of a cross to bear.

We have seen the actions that he has taken to try and move this cause forward. We have been witness to the many people that he has put in his administration that are bordering on Marxist.

John Drew’s telling glimpse into the mind of an ideologue is very telling.

In a recent poll taken, 73% of Americans believe that Obama is a Socialist. Fifty-three percent of Democrats have a positive view of Socialism. This is not something to be taken lightly. Do not underestimate this believe. It appears that they may have the right man at the top to carry forward the cause.
