They Really Are Deranged: Yes, Enough Is Enough
So now the media really cares precisely which foot of Sarah Palin may or may not have been across a border on one overseas trip? Kornblut, who already has a story which had to be edited to at least make it appear truthful (WaPo didn’t disclose that), citing the Globe.
WASILLA, Alaska — Aides to Gov. Sarah Palin are scrambling to explain details of her only trip outside North America — which, according to a new report, did not include Iraq, as the McCain-Palin campaign had initially claimed.
Obama aides described the new revisions to Palin’s account as part of a growing pattern of deception.
Okay, that does it – I’ve had it. Aren’t there some overseas travel and subsequent events in Obama’s life the media seems to not care about at all? Isn’t that fair game to discuss given the above?
Maybe it’s time the media did some serious looking into the early travels of a fellow who wants to be President, not Vice President of the United States – Barack Obama.
This isn’t crazy Obama Muslim Manchurian candidate stuff. Remember the Clintonite who off-handedly dropped the "drug dealer" line during the primaries? Well, anyone can source this below based upon MSM accounts, the news at the time or the few simple links provided. It’s certainly enough to make me curious about some things.
By 1980 at Occidental Obama ran partly with a circle of wealthy, drug using Pakistani friends. He traveled to Pakistan between Occidental and Columbia in 1981. That was during the Second Military Era (1977-1988) – Pakistan was under Sharia Law and not the most welcoming to foreign visitors, especially without some graft or connections.
Based upon documented accounts, Obama seems to have also traveled the country-side, not just in the cities. By 1981 Pakistan had become the world’s number one supplier of Heroin. Upon his return Obama took up residence with one of the drug using Pakistanis in a run down, presumably drug infested part of NYC in an apartment they couldn’t qualify for based on income.
For a college kid out of California via Hawaii who ends up in a NYC slum via Pakistan partying with admitted drug users – using well beyond what Obama has ever admitted to, especially given the particular era, that Pakistan voyage is one very curious trip no matter how you slice it. And I don’t mean for any possible Muslim/terror related reasons.
For example, if they had to lie about income to get the apartment cited below – how is it they paid for it seems a fair question? Did he deal drugs at Columbia? He certainly seems to have had the location and friends for it and the Obama campaign has gone to great lengths to cover up that period of his life. Frankly, I want to know why and I think America deserves to know, as well.
In 1981, Obama transferred from Occidental to Columbia. In between, he traveled to Pakistan.
"He was clearly shocked by the economic disparity he saw in Pakistan. He couldn’t get over the sight of rural peasants bowing to the wealthy landowners they worked for as they passed," says Mifflin, who makes a brief appearance in Obama’s memoir.
When Obama arrived in New York, he already knew Siddiqi — a friend of Chandoo’s and Hamid’s from Karachi who had visited Los Angeles.
The Obama campaign declined to discuss Obama’s time at Columbia and his friendships in general.
In about 1982, Siddiqi and Obama got an apartment at a sixth-floor walk-up on East 94th Street. Siddiqi managed to get the apartment thanks to subterfuge.
"We didn’t have a chance in hell of getting this apartment unless we fabricated the lease application," Siddiqi said.
Siddiqi fudged his credentials, saying he had a high-paying job at a catering company, ….
While Obama has acknowledged using marijuana and cocaine during high school in Hawaii, he writes in the memoir that he stopped using soon after his arrival in New York. His roommate had no such scruples.
But they obviously hung out together cruising clubs and such? What’s next? Obama going to put designated driver on his resume right below community organizer? Is anyone buying that? Come on, Barry – what are you hiding from us? Fess up!
"We were always competing," he said. "You know how it is. You go to a bar and you try hitting on the girls. He had a lot more success."
…. The two, along with others, went out for nights on the town. "He wasn’t entirely a hermit," Siddiqi said.
Siddiqi said his female friends thought Obama was "a hunk."
