A man claiming to be a close pal to President Obama during college made contact with Republican operatives recently, ready to go public with claims that Obama used and sold cocaine in college, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively. The operatives tried to spread the story through the media and the Romney campaign, a source close to the situation told Radar. “At first he wanted to do a book,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com about the alleged college pal. “But there just wasn’t enough time before the election.
Comments: They couldn't sell the story to classy Romney campaign.
Talk about quick. The article is already gone. Don't know. Did he have a friend? Did he go to college? And did he have any coke he didn't personally snort? Stay away from this story. It could backfire big time.
Romney's campaign is smart to leave this alone. They are keeping away from personal attacks, and people are tired of this negative cr*p. the very few true undecideds (I still can't believe anyone is, either the world is a better place for you today or it isn't) are not going to be influenced by this and would look at it as a snarky election gambit.
I agree #7. I believe Obama was born in the US and the big lie they are covering up is that he claimed was born in Kenya to get into college. I suspect Trump believes the same thing and has found proof. But it doesn't matter. The media will not report the truth and if they report anything at all, they'll say the records are fake. They'll mock Trump, call him a birther and then move along to the next story.
The source apparently can prove Obama not only used but SOLD cocaine -- makes you wonder if Obama and his 2 (drug dealer) Muslim buddies who traveled to Pakistan with a Foreign passport went there for other reasons...
Smart for Romney to stay away, the surrogates and news outlets can do it for him.
#4 - great post! I've actually assumed that he dealt drugs throughout school anyway, so this is hardly a revelation. Glad Team Romney ignored it. Guess this is just another one of Mooch's overflowing toilets.
Folks, do not get too excited about this great mystery coming from Trump. It is not likely that it is anything of real significance. All of the posts above are nothing but wild guesses without substance. In all probability we would have heard more if there was significant story brewing.
Stay calm and focus on the work at hand in the next two weeks. Donate, volunteer, vote, work the polls.
This should be no surprise to you people. In his first autobiography, hussein obama wrote, "I like marijuana, but prefer cocaine when I can afford it." Many college students who are drug abusers get involved in the sale of illegal drugs. Geraldine Ferraro's son was a drug dealer at middlebury college back in the 1990s. Using and dealing go together.
But I agree that I was surprised to see that mr hussein obama had private sector experience.
#6's reply made me smile like a vandalized Halloween jack-o'-lantern. Metric system, indeed!
Since Obama owned up to doing cocaine in his first memoir, I have no doubt that he also was involved in selling the stuff. It's just the sort of thing a budding community organizer would do to raise some cash.
I also understand why Romney won't touch these allegations. He's going to win anyway, and being a classy fellow, he wants to take the high road to the presidency. Secretly, I imagine he's pleased. Watching the most odious political figure of our lifetimes slide slowly, angrily out of sight and out of power brings immense satisfaction.
Obama's roommate in NYC was Sohale Siddiqui aka Sadik. A Muslim from Pakistan who eventually overstayed his visa. In 2008 , before they shut him up , Sohale admitted selling cocaine from their apartment. In DreamsFMF on page 118 , Obama wrote about seeing a woman named Sophie " sitting at the kitchen table , a mirror and a razor blade pushed off to one side. " On page 120 ,Obama wrote that at some point in NYC he " stopped getting high." Considering his history , it makes sense that Obama was involved in selling and using drugs. After the election, when it's safe, it's a sure bet that the true stories will start oozing out about Obama's bath house proclivities, his relationship with Reggie Love , his drug use ( perhaps still current ) and his bizarre behavior.
First he peddled dope. Then coke. Then Hopenchange. Then green jobs and shovel ready jobs. Then the Chevy Volt. But now he doesn't have anything to hock so he just sits there contemptuously scowling at his opponent. How dare you challenge Good King Barack?
Class shows from the Romney campaign. As for zippy, we all know who he is.
As for Mr. Trump, he is a smart businessman and knows how to get attention against a sworn enemy of freedom and our Constitution. I don't care if he self-promotes, the truth does not have a shelf life.
No. 17's post makes the most sense of his Pakistani trips. I was in college around the same time BO was and all the kids I knew wanted to go to Europe and see Paris - most had to borrow the money from their parents. NOBODY was clamoring to see scenic Pakistan. I knew an engineering student who was from there & he was pretty glad to get out of there - he didn't even go home to visit family. If it is proven that BO was dealing that makes him guilty of a felony.
The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be
When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.
It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."
Rush Limbaugh began his radio show Monday morning by addressing the news that Cumulus Media, the second-biggest radio broadcaster in the country, plans to drop his show from its stations by the end of the year. Limbaugh assured his readers that “nothing is going to change” in terms of their ability to hear him every morning. “There was another POLITICO story that ran last night on this program,” Limbaugh began, referring to Dylan Byers‘ report. “Someday, I am looking forward to detailing all of this for you,” Limbaugh continued, but for now he said he “must use proper business restraint.”
Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.
Not a bit like the vigilante posses in the movies, the Rev. Al Sharpton’s posse will be out in 100 cities this weekend. But although the mainstream media’s not admitting it, Al’s is a posse that is already flagging before it starts. Missing from the the Rev. Sharpton’s planned “Justice for Trayvon” day, is the real spontaneity and consensus of the posses of yore. Rev. Sharpton’s planned weekend protests in 100 cities, relies on the mainstream media and politicians of the day fueling the fire of racial unrest.
The cover of Friday´s edition of Rolling Stone magazine featuring Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The cover of Rolling Stone magazine has most often been the domain of musicians, actors, comedians, and the occasional politician. But this week, the periodical has raised eyebrows by letting Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev grace the famous front. The issue, which hits newsstands Friday, features an picture of an unsmiling Tsarnaev above the bolded legend "The Bomber." The subhead promises to reveal "[h]ow a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."
The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,
MSNBC came in a distant fourth place in the cable news ratings during the George Zimmerman verdict Saturday night despite three weeks of extensive trial coverage, Politico reports. In the 10-11 p.m. hour Saturday night, when Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, MSNBC had just 1,298,000 total viewers according to the preliminary ratings. First-place Fox News (3,682,000) had nearly three times as many, and MSNBC was also far behind HLN (2,203,000 viewers) and runner-up CNN (3,407,000).
On May 14, the FBI claimed they launched an investigation into the IRS fiasco. FBI Director Robert Mueller was famously told Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio on June 13 that he didn’t know the name of the lead investigator at the Bureau spearheading the effort. That’s almost a month into the alleged investigation. This is a national story. It’s a major scandal – and you don’t know who the point guy, or gal, that’s tasked with getting to the bottom of this debacle?
On a humid morning in Tanzania on Tuesday, two American presidents stood side by side in a ceremony where neither spoke. One was the son of a Kenyan whose election broke barriers for African-Americans. But it was the other one who might command as much, if not more, respect among many Africans today. While George W. Bush is remembered at home for war, terrorism and national security, in Africa he is seen as a lifesaver
Obamacare is imploding. But thanks to the government shutdown, everyone is talking about the implosion of the GOP instead. The shutdown drama has distracted from the fact that Obamacare’s debut is worse than many realize — and it threatens the fundamental viability of the law itself. The administration claims the Obamacare online exchanges crashed because the Web site got more than 8 million hits in the first week. Please. You know how many people visit Amazon.com every week? More than 70 million. The difference is: 1.) Amazon seldom crashes, and 2.) on Amazon, people actually buy something.
Every week during halftime of Sunday Night Football, Bob Costas gets to recite a personal essay about whatever hot topic strikes his fancy. This Sunday he chose the Redskins name, and spent a few minutes offering his commentary on the subject. Here is his statement in full. With Washington playing Dallas here tonight, it seems like an appropriate time to acknowledge the ongoing controversy about the name, “Redskins.” Let’s start here: there’s no reason to believe that owner Daniel Snyder, or any official or player from his team, harbors animus towards Native Americans, or chooses to disrespect them. This is
When I have described the well-considered, coherent political and economic strategies of the conservative white South, as I have done here, here and here, I am sometimes been accused of being a “conspiracy theorist.” But one need not believe that white-hooded Dragons and Wizards are secretly coordinating the actions of Southern conservative politicians from a bunker underneath Stone Mountain in Georgia to believe that a number of contemporary policies — from race-to-the-bottom economic policies to voter disfranchisement and attempts to decentralize or privatize federal social insurance entitlements — serve the interests of those who promote them, who tend to be
Ted Cruz’s “aw shucks” act is wearing thin. The Republican senator from Texas likes to pretend he is above the fray of Washington bickering, focused on large issues and too big to engage character assassination. But the reality is that Cruz is the Republican king of nasty attacks. He explodes rhetorical nuclear bombs on his opponents, only to feign outrage when his victims respond in kind, or in many cases, with relative spitballs. Take his defund Obamacare effort. The tactic to eliminate President Obama’s health care law had zero prospect of success, which Cruz undoubtedly knew despite what he sold the conservative
As the government shutdown enters a third week, a group of veterans and tea party groups protested their anger by storming the World War II memorial in Washington, DC. The protest Sunday started at the World War II memorial before moving to the National Mall and eventually winding up outside the White House. ´Tear down these walls,´ the crowd chanted. Protesters also sang ´God bless America´ and other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial plaza. The memorial has become a political symbol in the bitter fight between Democrats and Republicans over who is at fault since the shutdown began. Earlier rallies have
“I sit here all day trying to persuade people to do the things they ought to have sense enough to do without my persuading them,” Harry Truman once lamented. “That’s all the powers of the President amount to.” As usual, the plain-speaking Truman got it right: presidential power is the power to persuade. Too bad the current occupant of the White House has never learned this basic lesson. Barack Obama’s refusal to negotiate with the Republicans in Congress on the government shutdown is proof once again that he doesn’t understand
The American Indian leader spearheading the campaign to change the name of the Washington Redskins is not a legitimate member of the tribe he leads, according to a New York State Assemblywoman, but rather an Obama crony who is raking in casino money and paying back only small stipends to his tribe members. Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter, who is also the CEO of Oneida Nation Enterprises, is not recognized in his position by the Grand Council of Chiefs governing the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy. Halbritter is not a legitimate member of the Oneida tribe, Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney told The Daily
The prince of the pulpit may have a revolution on his hands. Four upstart clergymen have invited more than 100 churches to knock Rev. Al Sharpton off his Harlem political throne. Speak Out Say It Loud, headquartered at Mount Neboh Baptist Church on Adam Clayton Powell Blvd., is a new coalition of black ministers determined to create a unified African-American power base with citywide clout. Mount Neboh pastor Johnnie Green, 51, said Sharpton has neglected black New York while pursuing national fame and acclaim. “While (Sharpton) is jet-setting around the country, people are going to our churches saying they don’t have money to eat,”
As Cory Booker looks set to win the junior Senate seat in New Jersey Wednesday, his supposed neighbors in Newark say Mayor Booker doesn’t live in the Gateway City. Multiple residents of Newark told The Daily Caller that the longtime mayor doesn’t live at any of the addresses he has claimed as home. The mayor is believed to live in New York even though he is registered to run for New Jersey’s special senate election. Booker, who filed to run for the U.S. Senate from a B.O. Box in Newark, is registered to vote at 435 Hawthorne Avenue but his
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called on House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to work with House Speaker John Boehner to pass a grand bargain deal that would end the government shutdown, raise the debt ceiling, and protect Obamacare by not delaying or defunding it. On ABC News’ This Week, Graham said Ryan should team with Boehner to pass some kind of deal “that doesn’t delay or defund [Obamacare] but would be good government.”
The Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system allows recipients of government food stamps to purchase goods using a digital card with a set spending limit, but for a few hours over the weekend, that limit disappeared for many users visiting Walmart stores in Louisiana. Walmart and local police in Springhill and Mansfield confirmed to CBS affiliate KSLA that officers were called into the stores to help maintain order Saturday as shoppers swept through the aisles at two stores and bought as much as they could carry. Xerox, which hosts some of the infrastructure used by the EBT card system, told
Last month, as the President, HHS Commissar Kathleen Sebelius, and their media toadies hyped the imminent launch of Obamacare’s dysfunctional insurance exchanges, few bothered to observe the 56th anniversary of “E-Day.” Don’t remember E-Day? This, believe it or not, was how the delusional leadership of Ford Motor Co. referred to the September 1957 rollout of another great American flop — the Edsel. That misbegotten vehicle, whose goofy name has long since become synonymous with “spectacular failure,” had much in common with Obamacare. Both were based on bad ideas, full of much-ballyhooed features that didn’t work, and were despised by the
