Skip to comments.Did Obama have a “coke nail” at Occidental?

Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama has admitted that he did drugs when he was young:
In the book [Dreams from My Father], Obama acknowledges that he used cocaine as a high school student but rejected heroin. “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though,” he says.
We know from David Maraniss’ Choom Gang reports that Obama didn’t just flirt with pot. Instead, he was a serious stoner in high school. As far as I know, though, no reporter has tied Obama to long-term cocaine use. Obama’s own statement — “maybe a little blow when you could afford it” — implies that his contacts were cocaine were few and far between. The distinction between chronic pot and chronic cocaine use matters because, while most adult Americans are fairly sanguine about marijuana, the same cannot be said about cocaine. The former is viewed as a “soft” drug; the latter is not.
I wonder, though, if Obama was as honest about his cocaine use as he could have been. I was watching The Choice 2012, a PBS Frontline production that provides side-by-side biographies of Romney and Obama. I won’t comment on the show’s merits, although I found it dismaying, as always, to see that on this taxpayer-subsidized show, the only experts the producers interviewed came from left of center publications. Considering that inherent bias, however, the show was fairly even-handed..
Anyway, TV being a visual medium, when it came to discussing Obama’s Occidental College years, Frontline included a lot of photographs. I either hadn’t seen the photographs before, or I hadn’t seen them on a large screen, HD television. Take this photo, for example:
Superficially, at least on my ordinary computer screen, it shows Obama hanging with a friend, Hasan Chandoo, back in 1981. (Chandoo, incidentally, is the friend with whom he traveled to Pakistan back in 1981, a trip Obama assiduously avoids discussing.)
Seen on a widescreen, HD TV, however, there’s something very interesting about the photograph:
Do you notice that Obama’s thumb and pointer finger have unusually long nails, while the other nails on his left hand are cropped close? I didn’t notice this fact because I was looking for dirt on Obama. I noticed it because I think long fingernails on men are gross. (Sorry, guys. If it’s any consolation, I don’t much like long fingernails on women either.)
Nor would I have thought about those two icky fingernails if I hadn’t just the week before read a Daily Mail squiblet questioning whether Carrie Fisher displayed “coke nails” in a scene from Return of the Jedi, a film she made when she was deep into her cocaine habit:
An overeager Reddit user has observed that the actress, best known for her portrayal of Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, appears to have an overgrown ‘coke nail’ on both hands.
The ‘coke nail’ is grown longer than the other nails for cocaine addicts to scoop drugs quickly instead of racking up lines, and is considered to be for addicts or ‘fiends on the go’.
(Coke nails, incidentally, are often on the pinkie finger, but the specific nail really depends on the user’s preference.)
I’ll be the first to admit that, on the information now available, there is absolutely no way to prove whether Obama used serious amounts of cocaine at Occidental. Nevertheless, given that he has admitted in a half-hearted way to using cocaine in high school, and given that the two over-grown nails on his left hand look remarkably like “coke nails,” it is interesting to speculate whether he has been honest about his college drug use. It’s equally possible that “Obama the chameleon” was playing around with a tough-guy persona, or that he just had haphazard personal hygiene. None of the possibilities are very flattering to the man occupying America’s White House.
We can’t put anything past this miscreant.
Coke nils are usually on the pinkie.
nils = nails
Mine was on my big toe, I won a ton of bets with that bad boy.
What is that mark on his forehead?
Mark of the Beast?
As far as the nails, I won't make that judgement. My husband suffered a stroke and leaving his thumb and pointer nails long helps him to button his shirts.
Longer nails help to pick your nose and scratch your Obama
Thanks servo1969. That “blow when I could afford it” was transparently false anyway — not least because he’s never paid his own way or held a job in his life.
The first thing I noticed on that Photo is that the guy he is with is either queer or is giving a great imitation of one.
I wonder why in these pictures of Obama we never see him with a female. The picture of him with that room mate of his is flat out homosexual in nature. I suspect this guy was too. Anybody know for sure? Also notice Obama has his “there is no god but allah “wedding ring on.
Oh good grief, I hope no one has suspected me of using coke, my nails are never all the same length!
Seriously...paging Freddie Mercury!
Chandoo was (is?) a faggot too. John Drew who know 0bastard in Occidental wrote about the twosome.
My instincts are that he was into the drugs (as he admits) and that he found the company of other males to be his preference. I also think that his marriage is for political reasons only. In the last month, he and Michelle have been overly lovey dovey for the cameras. This is strictly choreographed for the election. I also suspect that Barry is still preferring the company of males.
Note in the photo, Barry is wearing his “No God but Allah” ring. That ring info has not hit the mainstream yet.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Thanks for the ping.
Based on what I saw in the debates I would say Obama was smoking weed and Biden was doing crack.
I thought so too, but Obama is such a dork, I wouldn’t put it past him to screw up even being a cokehead.
Remember that when Larry Sinclair in his gay accented voice asked his taxi driver where he could find some fun, he drove Larry to a gay bar, disappeared inside and returned with Barack Obama, who was already I think a state senator, already married to Michelle, with one child. First thing this new companion Barack wants to do is to score some coke. He takes money from Larry and disappears into a destination, returning with powder for Larry to snort and A ROCK OF CRACK COCAINE FOR HIMSELF. Larry said that Obama took out a small glass crack pipe out of his jacket and smoked his rock while Larry serviced him in the limo.
And when Obama showed up the next day uninvited to Larry’s hotel room, he brought more crack for that tryst, and indulged even though that time, Larry turned it down. This was not in college.
I suspect that those are “toke nails” so that he doesn’t burn his fingers when he’s bogarting that joint.
