DO YOU KNOW the “REAL” Barrack Hussein Obama? PART II… OBAMA, FROM COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY TO COMMUNITY ORGANIZER!
After high school graduation in 1979, Barrack
Hussein Obama moves to California to attend Occidental College then transfers
his studies in 1981 to major in Political Science and International relationships
at Columbia in New York where he received his BA in 1983*.
Although it would certainly be interesting to
discuss President Obama’s entry, funding and achievements while attending
Columbia University (and later Harvard), we will not be mentioning much in this
study. For MILLIONS of dollars has been spent by the Obama Administration to
secure that NO SUCH INFORMATION will be released.
Prior to leaving New York, Obama secures his first
job working as a “writer” for Business International! Although the President writes in his book
that it was a “Coat & Tie” job where he would see his “reflection in the
closing doors of the stainless steel elevator,” fellow employees declare he “never”
showed up in a suit! Even “current supporters” declare his “embellishments” are
“laughable!” While a fellow female
employee calls his demeanor, “arrogant
and condescending!” **
In 1984, after Columbia, Obama moves to Chicago.
"I came because of Harold Washington," Obama states. "I wanted
to do community organizing, and I couldn't think of a better city than one as
energized and hopeful as Chicago was then." (Dreams of My Father.)
His Chicago Period begins
in 1985, when some rather “Left Leaning” organizations were looking for someone
who could recruit in a black neighborhood in the south side of Chicago. Obama
applied for and received the position as a Community Organizer for the
Developing Communities Project (DCP) of the Calumet Community Religious
Conference (CCRC). The "Project" was funded with a grant by Bill Ayers through the “Woods
The Woods Fund gave a $25,000 grant to the DCP,
which hired Obama in Chicago and ran a story with a document showing that
Obama's planned 1987 salary was $25,000, a number that the Obama campaign confirmed
but insist his original salary was $13,000.
One of Obama's early mentors, teaching the Alinsky
method was Mike Kruglik, who had this to say about Obama:
"He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage
a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging
them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the
panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes
personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives,
tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they
could make things better."*
The agitator's job, according to Alinsky, is first to bring folks to the
"realization" that they are indeed miserable, that their misery is
the fault of unresponsive governments or greedy corporations and the “RICH”,
then help them to bond together to demand what they deserve, and to make such
an almighty stink that the dastardly governments, rich and corporations will
see imminent "self-interest" in granting whatever it is that will
cause the harassment to cease. Especially when it comes to dreams of home
While engaged in his Community Organizational job,
Obama is working from a Church. Although NOT a Christian, he writes in his book,
“I was continually asked to join, but I remained a reluctant skeptic, doubtful
of my own motives….” However, as Obama
later writes in his next book… Audacity, “far too many people involved in my work were also Church people and the pressure to join was extremely wearing on me.” Thus, he reluctantly relented and joined Trinity United Church and
accepted Jeremiah Wright as his pastor.
But Obama wanted to further his education, seeking
what he felt a “necessary” Law Degree!
In 1988, Barrack Hussein Obama enters Harvard University and works “part
time” in his summer vacation for the corporate law firm, Sidley Austin, LLP in
Chicago. There he will meet Michelle Robinson as his adviser and her best
friend and fellow staffer, terrorist, Bernadine Dohrn.
