It only took nearly six years for the media to begin vetting President Obamas past.
Today, Vanity Fair released an excerpt from a new biography of Barack Obama by David Maraniss.

The book itself sounds like an ode to Obama. Maraniss writes, At age 20, Obama was a man of the world He could not be of one place, rooted and provincial. No, says Maraniss, this was a broadminded young man who knew the ways of different cultures better than he knew himself.
When he first moved to New York, he was in the midst of an affair with Alexandra McNear, a girl from Occidental. They exchanged a series of purple letters with one another turgid missives from overfevered young minds. Here, for example, is tendentious Obama explaining poetry to his young girlfriend:
I havent read The Waste Land for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statementsEliot contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats. However, he retains a grounding in the social reality/order of his time. Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality. And he wears a stoical face before this. Read his essay on Tradition and the Individual Talent, as well as Four Quartets,

and the house in the Hamptons is...not his.
And it's not done. . .
I don’t know much about Alger Hiss and that part of our history.
Here is a write up of the front for Communist activities and Jessup’s involvement.
Don’t know how much is true
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
The trustees of CEIP in 1948 lists the ruling clique of America:
John Foster Dulles
“Jessup was a member of the wealthy Stotesbury family, partners of J.P. Morgan. His brother John Jessup was a wealthy banker, president Equitable Trust Co., director of Coca Cola and Diamond State Telephone Co.”
Jessup is related to a Stotesbury but not finding that it is THE Stotesbury of Drexel and JP Morgan
Here it is ....
this is a little wilder...
Philip’s brother John B was married to an Olympic Tennis player who won a silver medal in Paris.
There is an obscure reference that John B was head of Treasury Department of E I Dupont after WW I...but mostly what I find on that is modern day age of JOHN P Jessup . Wonder if they are related.
What a bizarre choice for a beard for Obama. You can find all kinds of things on the family but the girl is a ghost on the net...scrubbed away...
I have absolutely no doubt that Obama’s family was involved with the Spooks.
Here is info on that school
Now we are finding more mysterious contacts in his past with this latest revelation.

To say that Dr. Robert Stein has an active role in the Sag Harbor community is a gross understatement.
Even before his appointment to the Sag Harbor Village Board of Trustees, Stein and his wife, Alex McNear, were vital residents in the village, hosting community events at their home. However, it was after his appointment that Stein really shone as a dedicated volunteer, easily becoming the most diverse and active member of the village board.
