WHAT IS OBAMA HIDING ABOUT HIS FRIENDSHIP WITH MOHAMMED CHANDOO?
The Astute Bloggers ^ | 2/13/10 | The Astute Bloggers

Dr. John C. Drew, a grant writing consultant in Laguna Niguel, Calif., tells Newsmax he met Obama in 1980 when Obama was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Drew had just graduated from Occidental and was attending graduate school at Cornell University.

Drew’s then girlfriend, Caroline Boss — now Grauman-Boss — knew Obama because she shared classes with him at Occidental....

During Christmas break, Drew says he was at Grauman-Boss’ home in Palo Alto when Obama came over with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, his roommate from Pakistan.

“Barack and Hasan showed up at the house in a BMW, and then we went to a restaurant together,” Drew says. “We had a nice meal, and then we came back to the house and smoked cigarettes and drank and argued politics.” For the next several hours, they discussed Marxism.

“He was arguing a straightforward Marxist-Leninist class-struggle point of view, which anticipated that there would be a revolution of the working class, led by revolutionaries, who would overthrow the capitalist system and institute a new socialist government that would redistribute the wealth,” says Drew, who says he himself was then a Marxist.

... In 1981, Obama left Occidental to attend Columbia University. During that year, Obama spent “about three weeks” visiting Chandoo and his family in Karachi, Pakistan, according to the account of Obama spokesman Bill Burton during the campaign.

Chandoo is now a financial consultant who was formerly a broker at Oppenheimer & Co. He has contributed to Obama’s campaign and helped raise more than $100,000 for him as a bundler.

“If that’s what John Drew said, that’s what he said,” Chandoo commented. “I can’t remember Obama ever talking like that. It sounds a bit absurd to me, but that’s my opinion. I can’t remember him ever expressing an interest in being a Marxist.”

... Chandoo said he has not seen nor talked with him since before Obama became a U.S. senator. However, under “community member,” the White House listed Chandoo as a guest at Obama’s Ramadan dinner last fall.

When asked about that, Chandoo acknowledged from his home in Armonk, N.Y., that he attended the dinner. Despite the fact that fewer than 70 people were in attendance, Chandoo added, “I did not get a chance to see the boss.” He then said he shook hands with Obama in a receiving line.

Chandoo said he has been in touch with Caroline Grauman-Boss over the years. She did not respond to a request for comment.

...Obama wrote in Dreams of My Father that he hung out with the Marxists and radicals in college. Drew says it is very rare for a young college kid to be so radicalized as Obama was when he met him. He also said there is usually a team surrounding a charismatic leader like Obama....

Zer0’s grades could prove he’s a genius. Good grades while being a big time Rastafarian would convince me.

According the April 10, 2008 New York Times, the Obama campaign staff stated: ‘Mr. Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. He spent ‘about three weeks’ there, Mr. Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton, said, staying in Karachi with the family of a college friend, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, but also traveling to Hyderabad, in India.’ That information is significant for two reasons. First and foremost is the fact that Mohammed Hasan Chandoo is a radical Muslim who with his relatives operate a website that is anti-Semitic and anti-American and supports radical Islamic politics.

Many young fundamentalist Muslim ‘scholars’ have traveled to Hyderabad to witness what they believed was stolen from Islam by India’s Hindu majority. Karachi is favored by young radical Muslims because Pakistan was the first former British colony that abandoned English common law for Islamic law following the coup d’etat of General Mohammed Zia who overthrew the democratically elected government of Ali Bhutto in the late 1970s. Barack Obama admitted that he traveled to Karachi while under military rule of madman and dictator General Zia.

A few posters here at Defendourfreedoms.us found a Pakistani forum where an Assistant Director of the Emigration & Overseas Employment for Pakistan’s Test & Scrutiny Wing of the Federal Public Service Commission posts. He posts information to help students that want to apply to work for the Pakistani Federal goverment study and pass their tests.

This is something else. Think about it.

Drew says that he met the Zero in 1980 when O was a sophmore. O was supposedly born in 1961. At the time, that would make the Zero 19 years old, and a sophmore? Who’s BmW was it driving up to the residence? Was O driving? If he was, from which state did he have a drivers license from?

What high school did the Zero go to? What year did he graduate? What were his grades? In Drew’s description, he states that O was a sophmore, did he spend his freshmen year at Occidental? Who paid for Zero’s schooling at occidental and other Communist fronts in higher education?

Obama attended the elite Punahou School in Honolulu for high school. In his memoirs Obama said he lived in an apartment while he attended Punahou. Does this mean that he must have had a scholarship for his divorced single mom to afford to send him to Punahou?

Obama graduated from Punahou School in Honolulu in 1979. He attended Occidental College in LA from 1979-1981. His records at Occidental are sealed. Some think the records at Occidental are sealed because they would show that he was attending occidental on a scholarship available to foreign students. It is thought that Obama qualified for the foreign scholarship because he had been legally adopted by his step-father and, thus, held Indonesian citizenship.

Who paid for Zero’s schooling at occidental and other Communist fronts in higher education?

From 1975 to 1987 Frank Wallace Davis of the Communist Party USA in Hawaii was Obama’s personal mentor and father figure. Davis may have played a role in financing Obama’s attendance at Punahou School in Honolulu and/or at Occidental College in LA.

Also:

Obama graduated from Columbia University in 1983. Afterward he worked in the NYC area until 1985 and then took a community organizing position that the money had been arranged for by Bill Ayers at the Woods Fund.

In 1987, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour a.k.a. Donald Warden was solicited to raise money for Obama’s Harvard Law School education. The solicitation is likely to have come from Bill Ayers who at that time was finishing his Masters in Education at Bank Street College in NYC, Al-Mansour is an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, is an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and his cohort, Bobby Seale.

At the time Al-Mansour associate Percy Sutton was raising money for Obama’s education, Al-Mansour was the top financial advisor to mega-billionaire Prince Al-Waleed (Al-Walid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family. As of August 2009, Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal’s net worth is estimated at US$16.3 billion, down from $21 billion. He is ranked by Forbes as the 22nd richest person in the world. He has been nicknamed by Time magazine as the Arabian Warren Buffett.

Percy Sutton connection to Harvard tuition paid for Obama

Obama Had Close Ties to Top Saudi Adviser at Early Age, Wednesday, 03 Sep 2008 05:58 PM

http://newsmax.com/KenTimmerman/obama-sutton-saudi/2008/09/03/id/339914

Percy Sutton was Malcolm X’s attorney and a New York (Manhattan) Assemblyman. Percy Sutton was quite proud of Bin Talal’s involvement and said in a television interview still on YouTube that Mansour (Don Warden, a black panther founder) had been a patron of Obama’s for years, and that Mansour had contacted him to help get Barry [Obama] into Harvard. Mansour can be found on YouTube acknowledging the long relationship with Obama.

Al Mansour connection to Harvard tuition paid for Obama:

It is believed that Obama became known to Mansour during Obama’s Occidental College days in LA, California. Don Warden (Mansour) has been a paid recruiter for black nationalists since his Berkeley days. Mansour (Warden) had a radio show on California radio station KPFA. He’s done quite well financially working for Bin Talal, who completed his undergraduate degree at Menlo College in CA and a master’s degree at the University of Syracuse in NY.

I have long felt that we do not know about Obama’s college years because he doesn’t want us to know what he was studying.

This is all Bull$hit ( not all your info that you put here but this joke in the white house).

Isn’t this Al Alweed rag head the one that put money FoxNews. No media covers any of this.

My parents struggled to put all of my sisters throungh college; scrimped and saved, re mortgaged the house a couple of times and this joke gets a free ride. And now no coverage regarding it. Strange how Fox News doesn’t even talk about this.
