Posted on 05/02/2012 12:18:02 PM PDT by Nachum
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 excerpt discusses Barack Obama's first love affair, with a white Australian woman named Genevieve Cook. It's a telling examination of who Obama was as a young man -- and it shows a self-absorbed "internationalist" with delusions of grandeur.

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,

Thanks! What a treasure of information! From your last hotlink I see that “ - - -Obama’s New York roommate, Sohale Siddiqi, - - - “ would be an interesting guy for Joel Pollack, Editor for Breitbart Inc., to interview.
Fred Nerks notes that Siddai was in Seattle last he knew.
Do you know if Siddai, like Obama, was a foreign student at California’s Occidential College also?
“Do you know if Siddiqi , like Obama, was a foreign student at Californias Occidential College also?”
“When Obama arrived in New York, he already knew Siddiqi - a friend of Chandoos and Hamids from Karachi who had visited Los Angeles. Looking back, Siddiqi acknowledges that he and Obama were an odd couple.
“His memoir, Dreams from My Father, talks about this time, but not in great detail; Siddiqi, for example, is identified only as Sadik - a short, well-built Pakistani who smoked marijuana, snorted cocaine and liked to party.”
“Obamas campaign wouldnt identify Sadik, but The Associated Press located him in Seattle, where he raises money for a community theater.”
“Some explained that they feared inadvertently hurting Obamas campaign. Among his friends were Siddiqi and two other Pakistanis, all of them from Karachi; several of those interviewed said the Pakistanis were reluctant to talk for fear of stoking rumors that Obama is a Muslim.”
“As a freshman, he quickly became friends with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, two wealthy Pakistanis.”
“Obama had an international circle of friends - a real eclectic sort of group, says Vinai Thummalapally, who himself came from Hyderabad, India.”

Meant also to comment on:
“Obamas New York roommate, Sohale Siddiqi, - - - would be an interesting guy for Joel Pollack, Editor for Breitbart Inc., to interview.”
Highly unlikely he will talk. I suspect he has many “incentives” (carrot/stick incentives) not to talk. This just about sums up all that is known about him. To my knowledge he has never given an interview, other than what was reported in the 2008/2009 time period.
I am speculating that Obama belonged to a Marxist sleeper cell in his childhood.
That would account for Obama’s arrogant hatred of America, and ALL of his policy decisions.
The lack of ANY personal documents that ARE NOT FORGED, or missing, is consistent with Obama having a highly skilled, secretive and well-financed staff.
The check writers were probably wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.
Your post brings up the possibility that Obama’s “lost years” were spent in Karachi, in a well-financed Marxist sleeper cell.
“You can find all kinds of things on the family but the girl is a ghost on the net...scrubbed away...”
Scrubbed away? In advance of the book, no doubt.
The brother, Alexander Ibbitson Cook...could find nothing.
The sister, Francesca Munro Cook—— perhaps this (all I could find):

there are those who say it looks like Ndg...I think it's Ng and could also stand for 'new generation' - there is a school by that name but the establishment year is too recent... Notre Dame deJamour was a boy's school until many years later iirc. Result: inconclusive.
It IS a very very small world...I’m going to send you a freepmail.
“did you notice her friend Ted Jessup?”
hmm... Jessup. Is he a FB friend? I refuse to join FB, so cannot see friends.
Siddiqi, according to zero, wasn’t a student, HE WAS A ‘ROOM-MATE’.
A ‘Hal Siddiqi’ was supposedly connected to a thearte in Seattle, I traced him to the Fifth Avenue Theatre, but his name has been removed, and all that remains is this:
...Siddiqi was not a student and made his living working in restaurants. Together they lived in a drug-ridden slum apartment on 339 East 94th St.  Siddiqi got the apartment by lying, saying he had a well paid job. The apartment was furnished by what they could find in the streets...
I guess they gave him a job at the theatre in Seattle, where Mary's daughter, an actress could keep an eye on him?
Fred Nerks, you and a myriad of other GREAT Freepers make FREE REPUBLIC the very best internet site for those of us that love America! Your response time to my questions is blinding!
Thank you for all you do on FR, and thanks for posting the results of your re-searching the data available at this time.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm - - - - - . Now I understand why “Happy Hal” did not know anything about Obama’s gal pal!
Yeah, that’s the picture. Thanks for the links.
Millennium of Glory
It was in 1997 that Helen Ibbitson Jessup began exploring the possibility of setting up a foundation to aid the Cambodian government and the National Museum of Phnom Penh in preserving the art and architecture of the Cambodian people. She gave an interview to ArtsZone at the time, as curator of the most complete survey of Cambodian art ever gathered in a museum. Sculpture of Angkor and Ancient Cambodia: Millennium of Glory was on view in Washington, DC at the National Gallery of Art, in September 1997. It later moved onto the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the Osaka Municipal Museum of Art....
... But the record is unmistakably clear and speaks for itself. As the 1954 report of the SISS revealed, Alger Hiss was “unofficially” influential in the employment of 494 persons by the United Nations on its initial staff.24
During the Korean War, a New York grand jury accidentally stumbled across evidence of Communist penetration into the American staff of the United Nations. One piece of evidence led to another and so alarmed the grand jury that it proceeded to conduct a full-scale inquiry into the matter. The publicity attracted a great deal of attention and prompted the Senate Committee on the Judiciary to initiate a parallel investigation of its own. Shortly after these investigations began, some two hundred Americans employed by the UN resigned, apparently to avoid testifying.25 Those that did testify, however, provided more than ample evidence for the grand jury to issue the following presentment:
This jury must, as a duty to the people of the United States, advise the court that startling evidence has disclosed infiltration into the UN of an overwhelmingly large group of disloyal U.S. citizens, many of whom are closely associated with the international Communist movement. This group numbers scores of individuals, most of whom have long records of federal employment,, and at the same time have been connected with persons and organizations subversive to this country. Their positions at the time we subpoenaed them were ones of trust and responsibility in the UN Secretariat and in its specialized agencies.26
The Senate investigations produced exactly the same conclusions. Senator Eastland, chairman of the committee, made the following statement at the conclusion of the hearings:
I am appalled at the extensive evidence indicating that there is today in the UN among the American employees there, the greatest concentration of Communists that this Committee has ever encountered. Those American officials who have been called represent a substantial percentage of the people who are representing us in the UN. . . . These people occupy high positions. They have very high salaries and almost all of these people have, in the past, been employees in the U.S. government in high and sensitive positions. I believe that the evidence shows that the security officers of our government knew, or at least had reason to know, that these people have been Communists for many years. In fact, some of these people have been the subject of charges before Congress before and during their employment with the UN. It is more than strange that such a condition existed in the government of the U.S., and it is certainly more than strange that these people should be transferred to the UN and charged to the American quota.27 [Italics added.]
It takes the better part of a day to read through the transcript of the hearings that led up to that conclusion, but for those who have the time, it is well worth the effort. There is no better way to get an accurate perspective on how the Communists have secretly captured complete working control of the American staff positions within the United Nations. The following are just a few examples taken at random to give an idea of the scope of this control...
It’s a rather poor translation, but you’ll get the drift, the school only accepted girls from 1975:
The College of Our Lady of Jamhour was founded by the Jesuits of the Province of the Near East. Opened in October 1953, he succeeded to the Secondary College of St. Joseph University in Beirut in 1875 installed. The secondary college is the successor to the Ghazir opened in 1849, with the seminary founded in 1844. Since 1975, the College receives only external, boys and GIRLS
The picture with the woman is showing a different guy’s body (hence the white hand) with odumbo’s head photoshopped on (hence the enormous cranium).
