Obama's Missing Years

Obama has been remarkably coy about the years he spent at Columbia University. Just One Minute postulates a reason for that-

What did Barack Obama do while at Columbia from 1981 to 1983 and in the year after his graduation?

These are just dots and it may be impossible to connect them, but we have Barack Obama at Columbia working on South African divestment (as were many peaceful protestors) while other radical elements with a Weather Underground flavor are setting bombs, killing cops, and working on South African divestment. As a bonus, Bill Ayers is studying at Bank Street College a quarter mile from Columbia towards his Masters in Education and Kathy Boudin, one of the Brinks getaway drivers, was working at a progressive Upper West Side School. Eventually Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn raised Kathy's child while she was in jail, so it seems a fair guess that they were close.

A small, small world in which Obama never met any of these people despite their shared passion for justice in South Africa. Never heard them speak at a rally, never heard anyone describe the Weather Underground to him, and felt comfortable assuming that Bill Ayers had been rehabilitated by 1995. In fact, a world so small that Obama won't talk about it now.

It's a remarkable coincidence that Ayers (who plucked Obama from obscurity to head up the Annenberg Challenge) and Obama were there at the same time and apparently involved in the same kinds of anti-apartheid protest.

Did Obama meet and befriend Ayers during this period? Did their paths cross?

As NRO tells us, while at Columbia Obama studied under Edward Said- a relationship that continued afterwards-

Obama plainly maintained some sort of tie with Said — a photo making the Internet rounds shows Obama conversing with the great man himself at a 1998 Arab American community dinner in Chicago, where the Obamas and Saids were seated together.

And Obama wasn't Said's only acquaintance in this tale-

Said had a wide circle of radical acquaintances. That circle clearly included Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. When they came out of hiding in the early 1980s (while Obama was attending Columbia), Ayers took education courses at Bank Street College, adjacent to Columbia in Morningside Heights — before earning his doctorate at Columbia’s Teachers College in 1987.

Said was so enamoured of Ayers that he commended the unrepentant terrorist’s 2001 memoir.

You know, if Palin had been linked- even tangentially- to a radical during her college years, you can be sure that the media would devote their considerable resources into investigating and reporting on it.

With Obama? Yet another free pass. But given the working relationship that developed between Ayers and Obama in the following years surely this is worth looking at. Bear in mind too that the two of them also worked on education issues in Chicago related to the 1988 Reform Act. So, we find not only a possible link between Ayers and Obama during the latter's study at Columbia but also just a few years later in Chicago. Steve Diamond also has a theory on how Obama landed his post at the law firm Sidley & Austin in 1989- William Ayers' father was an important client and had apparently pulled strings to get Dohrn hired there too.

And, here's yet another "coincidental" link between Ayers-Dohrn and the Obamas- Dohrn and Michelle Obama worked together at the law firm just before Barack was hired.

Quite the social circle, isn't it?

Worth mentioning too, surely, is the fact that when Barack Obama returned from Harvard he joined the law firm Davis Miner Barnhill- and the Miner involved was, surprise, a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn.

Just a couple of years after that, Obama was suddenly made head of the Annenberg Challenge-

In short, Bill Ayers and Barack Obama moved in the same circles, were driven by the same cause, and admired the same radicals all the way from Morningside Heights to Hyde Park. They ended up publicly admiring each other, promoting each other’s work, sitting on the same boards, and funding the same Leftist agitators.

You could conclude, as I do, that it all goes back to a formative time in his life that Obama refuses to discuss. Or you could buy the fairy tale that Bill Ayers first encountered an unknown, inexperienced, third-year associate from a small Chicago law-firm over coffee in 1995 and suddenly decided Barack Obama was the perfect fit to oversee the $150 million pot of gold Ayers hoped would underwrite his revolution.

Obama's whole life is one of associations with far-left radicals- from his "Uncle" Frank to Rev. Wright- and among those associations there seems to be a remarkably long period during which Obama was in close proximity, and perhaps even a good friend of, two of America's most notorious domestic terrorists.

It's not beyond the pale to suggest that the whole truth about the Obama-Ayers connection hasn't yet come out. Contrary to Obama's public statement that William Ayers was "just a guy in the neighbourhood" it seems that the pair could have a relationship going back as far as the beginning of the 1980s. Ayers- bear in mind- only came out of hiding in 1980, with his famed "guilty as sin, free as a bird" statement being delivered in 1981.

Contrary to popular misconception, the Weather Underground were not merely a '60s radical organisation, the bulk of their activities took place throughout the 1970s, culminating in the Brinks armoured car robbery in 1981, where two police officers and a guard were murdered. Ayers adopted the child of one of that group, Kathy Boudin. That child was raised by Ayers and Dohrn and recently stated that he was dedicated to fighting US imperialism.

Plainly the background and associations of Obama clearly do not tie into his post-partisan, moderate image.

George W. Bush’s secret dislike or hatred of Barack Obama must be made known.

“PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH was accused in a criminal complaint and lawsuit of raping Margie Schoedinger, who later mysteriously committed suicide. Tammy Phillips, a former stripper, claimed she had an affair with Bush that had ended in 1999” (Larbabe. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

“And George Bush killed/had killed Margie Schoedinger” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

In the case that George W. Bush hired or caused another to murder Margie Schoedinger for him, the law says that Bush is criminally responsible for the murder of Margie Schoedinger in the way he would be if he had murdered her with his own hands—first degree murder. Maybe not every person would have known that this is the way the law works.

“George W Bush raped Margie Schoedinger, who later committed suicide” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

George W. Bush is wicked. Bush is in big trouble. There is no statute of limitations for murder, and thus the government can indict or charge Bush for the murder of Margie Schoedinger at any time if and when it is prepared to prove that Bush committed this gruesome crime beyond a reasonable doubt.

“George Bush needs to go to jail for the murder of Margie Schoedinger” (Rayrayischillin. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

Moreover, George W. Bush needs to burn in hell for the murder of Margie Schoedinger.

“Who is Margie Schoedinger? A MUST READ! Woman had a law suit against then, Texas Governor George W Bush for rape and kidnapping. She turned up murdered” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

Everybody should know that Margie Schoedinger was an African-American woman who was murdered by George W. Bush.

“One of those very least were George Bush’s personal complicity in the death (murder to be precise) of my friend Margie Schoedinger in September of 2003. Determining the exact whereabouts and contacts of [then] president-elect George Bush on September 21 thru 22, 2003, should be entirely lacking in difficulty” (Leola McConnell (Nevada Progressive Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010). Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

George W. Bush should come forward and confess that he murdered an African-American woman—Margie Schoedinger.

“Who Killed Margie Schoedinger? . . . The Schoedinger death is just the latest in a string of strange ones surrounding the Bush family - Bush biographer J.H. Hatfield, Sen. Paul Wellstone, Sen. Mel Carnahan, and others that are detailed on various sites” (Ruffhowse. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

George W. Bush must repent relative to his murder of an African-American woman—Margie Schoedinger.

“It has been gnawing at my brain, an unpleasant blight underlying everything, and I am finally compelled to devote some space to the strange, heartbreaking, outrageous, depressing and terrifying story of Margie Schoedinger, literally driven crazy to death (or most likely physically murdered outright) after being robbed of her humanity and right to any kind of meaningful existence by the former governor of Texas, the fraud, the incompetent imperial barbarian who cheated his way into the position of president of the formerly great United States of America, George ‘Waste-product’ Bush . . . Who Killed Margie Schoedinger?” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

Of course George W. Bush killed Margie Schoedinger. As described in the quotation above, Bush robbed an African-American woman of her humanity and right to any kind of meaningful existence. Bush must be punished for this.

“The Strange Death of the Woman Who Filed a Rape Lawsuit Against Bush . . . Early one Saturday afternoon in July 2003, I made a simple phone call to Margie Schoedinger, a Texas woman who filed a rape lawsuit against George W. Bush in December 2002. . . . She sounded like someone who wanted the truth to come out. And now she’s dead” (Jackson Thoreau. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from

She is dead because George W. Bush murdered her. This is, in a way, like the period of slavery in America in that a white person killed a black person, and there is no court, prosecutor, or sheriff around to uphold the rule of law or seriously pursue punishment against the killer. George W. Bush’s murder of an African-American woman is shocking to the conscience. According to the law, Bush should be incarcerated for the rest of his life or executed for this murder.

“When George W. Bush is convicted of having Margie Schoedinger murdered, will he have to share a jail cell?”

“Call me MISTER PRESIDENT” responded: “No, he should be sent to serve in IRAQ until the MISSION is ACCOMPLISHED.”

“Falstaff” responded: “I hope that something is done by the justice department during the next administration.”

“See Raymond Ponzini’s ‘An American Caligula’ to learn more about Bush’s murder of Margie Schoedinger” (Jim. Retrieved November 28, 2008, from

George W. Bush murdered an African-American woman. Margie Schoedinger is gone forever. George W. Bush must pay for this. I can’t believe Bush murdered an African-American woman within the period of the modern-day democracy of the United States of America and is still getting away with it.

“George W Bush A Rapist? . . . In December 2002, a 38-year-old black woman from Texas filed a civil lawsuit against George W Bush accusing the President of drugging and raping her. Nine months later, she was dead. . . . Maybe this poor woman was deluded and killed herself but the authorities had to admit under duress that Bush did indeed have a relationship with her. It would not be the first time that the Sugar Land Police Department and Harris County Medical Examiner’s office have been involved in a murder covered up as a suicide (former Enron executive John Clifford Baxter for example). . . . I am pretty certain that George Chimpy McSmirker Bush is the sort of individual that would do anything to cover his tracks and certainly holds the power and influence to do so in our world’s most corrupt nation” (Retrieved November 28, 2008, from

Bush” (Posted by Drizzten. Retrieved November 28, 2008, from

George W. Bush is absolute evil.

George W. Bush’s murder of Margie Schoedinger may also constitute criminal retaliation against victim or witness.

“I believe that George W. Bush hates Moslems. All that garbage about freedom, democracy, and the right to vote is a pollution of their culture. I believe that George W. Bush hates immigrants.

“[In addition to black people, George W. Bush also dislikes] arabs, muslims, asians and pretty much anyone not white” (Allen Bina. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from

It appears that Allen Bina’s statement is, in any case, sufficiently true or accurate or valid. George W. Bush is so mentally ill and requires involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.

“I believe that George W. Bush hates black people. Through secret government machinations, he caused Hurricane Katrina to form and aimed it at New Orleans on purpose, just so he could wipe out lots of poor blacks. I also believe that before the hurricane hit, he snuck into New Orleans and stole the keys to every school bus in the city to make evacuation of poor people impossible” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from,15202,94064,00.html).

George W. Bush’s relentless racial discrimination against black people is tragic.

“I believe George W. Bush stole the 2004 Presidential election. He did it by making it rain in Ohio on election day, then by denying government-funded umbrellas to poor black people waiting in line” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from,15202,94064,00.html).

George W. Bush must change: he must abandon his hatred of black people. Bush has gone off the deep end in his racial discrimination against black people.

“I believe George W. Bush stole the 2000 Presidential election in Florida. He did it by confusing illiterate black people, by declaring thousands of soldiers’ votes invalid, and by promising not to aim any more hurricanes at the state as long as he was President” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from,15202,94064,00.html).

George W. Bush’s vicious hatred of black people will blow you away.

“‘We have a president who was selected rather than elected. He stole the presidency through family ties, arrogance and intimidation, employing Republican operatives to exercise the tactics of voter fraud by disenfranchising thousands of blacks, elderly Jews and other minorities’” (Barbra Streisand at Retrieved November 26, 2008, from

There seems to be no end to the racial prejudices of George W. Bush: he is just about the most disgusting person one can imagine.

“Feds Raid Al Sharpton’s Office . . . This is only happening because he’s a black man living in BusHitler’s America” (Posted by Dirty Harry. Retrieved November 23, 2008, from

George W. Bush hates black people.

“I noted before how Galloway invoked Katrina (the Bush Regime’s shocking racism revealed by, the shame of troops in Iraq when they should be in New Orleans, the opulent Bush vacations, tax cuts for the rich instead of money for levees, etc etc etc.), along with almost every other hot button in the campus Left agenda. He also worked himself into a righteous froth over Barbara Bush’s Astrodome remark. The student activist who introduced the event (which you can hear here, about a third of the way in) proudly announced some initiative - which had Galloway’s imprimatur - to send students down to Mississippi to help with Katrina relief. Coordinated with Veterans for Peace, but that’s just a coincidence, right? This is about helping poor black people oppressed by the Bushitler’s racism, not about forcing a connection between Katrina and Iraq, right?” (Yehudit. Retrieved November 23, 2008, from

George W. Bush’s hatred of black people is extremely disturbing.
