Interview: Obama Had Marxist Vision For US At Occidental College

Has anyone ever been interested in President Obama’s ideological past? What were Obama’s beliefs while he was at Occidental? Several interviews by Dr. John Drew during the 2008 campaign cycle gave some insight, but few were interested at that time in what Obama really believed when he attended Occidental College. (See “Meeting Young Obama” and “Even Republicans Rejected Info About Obama’s Past” at American Thinker). Dr. Drew wrote, “Meeting Obama”, about Obama and his ideology about taking the United States over and making it fail so the, “revolution” could in his article “Meeting Young Obama” on February 24, 2011. He clearly remembers what Obama stated, in his own words, “Like it was yesterday”. Obama espoused without hesitation, “There’s going to be a revolution,” saying, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” This is disturbing due to the fact what our nation is going through right now drives it to the edge of failure; just what the young Obama stated he wanted to accomplish in 1980: the end of capitalism in the United States.

Obama has in the last three years been declaring, the people with money are the problem with the United States. This reflects back to his Marxist/Socialist training while he was at Occidental College. Obama discussed this ideology with young John Drew during a Christmas break when Drew visited his then girlfriend, Caroline Boss. It was during his visit that he met Obama face to face. Dr. Drew stated the man Obama had shown up with was an individual by the name of; Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, a 21-year-old Pakistani student Obama hung around with along with Chandoo’s girl friend, Margot Mifflin. All of them were fervent with their ideas of Marxism and Socialist ideology. Dr. Drew gave context to his recollections with the observation he had also read other stories about how Obama had dreamed of working to bring the downfall of Capitalism. Today it looks like Obama is working very hard to obtain those 1980 dreams.

In the below interview, Dr. Drew will, of course, refer to Dr. John Drew and LP will refer to the author of this piece, Louis Puissegur.

Dr. Drew began, “I know Stanley Kurtz’s book, Radical in Chief , that Obama has ties with the Midwest Acadamy, kind of like the Socialist training ground for America. I think that most Americans don’t understand that Obama has a longstanding tie to Marxism, that is even longer than his ties to Reverend Wright.”

LP; “That’s right, he(Obama), didn’t go to Reverend Wright until after he was married.”

Dr. Drew; “Right, I mean, the way I look at it, Barack Obama was probably at least a Communist sympathizer when he came out of high school, he was definitely a Marxist revolutionary when I met him in 1980. It doesn’t look like he changed a bit, he started hanging out with Bill Ayers.”

LP; “You saw him just before Obama went to Pakistan.”

Dr.Drew; “Exactly, the last time I saw Obama was June 1981, we had a graduation party for Occidental College. I guess he left from there and went on this tour in Indonesia, and somehow got into Pakistan, I guess you were not allowed to do that on a United States passport at that time.”

LP; “How long did you have an association with Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “It is kind of complex, the actual time I spent with Obama was sort of brief and limited, but he was part of my social sphere in the sense I knew his roommate at the time, Chandoo, and Obama was a member of the Democratic Socialist Alliance at Occidental and my girlfriend, Caroline Boss was the co-president of that organization.”

LP; “Democratic Socialist Alliance?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, that was the Marxist student association on campus, Caroline hung up a huge banner of Karl Marx where the students met at the Occidental College Quad. She and I were pretty intense Marxists we had been involved in about a two-year relationship and she was the one who introduced me to Barack Obama, she knew him better than I did. I wouldn’t be saying he was a Marxist/Socialist revolutionary if it was just based with my face to face talk with him, my comments are based on knowing Chandoo, having known Caroline and the Marxist Professors and that whole culture.”

LP; “Another words, the people he was associated with were deep into the Marxist/Socialist ideology?”

Dr. Drew; “Oh yes, I had considered myself as the enemy of the American government at that time.”

LP: “At that particular time? And what made you change?”

Dr. Drew; “Well, the first thing that happened was kind of spiritual change, I just started having the religious experience, I realized that there was something out there which I now call a higher power. That was very inconsistent with Marxist ideology. Because Marxism taught that stuff like that was just the opium of the people, but to me it was very real, so very real. Then my Doctoral research ended up just confirming a lot of Marxist theory which comes to explain how welfare programs and how Capitalism deals with child labor and things like that. My research pulled me out of Marxism fundamentally but what started it was the spiritual change.”

LP; “How many actual face to face meetings did you have with Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “I never had face to face after Christmas and in Partolo Valley California which is near Stanford. I basically spent the day with him, Chandoo, and Caroline Boss, I was visiting Boss from Cornell where I was studying. I graduated ahead of them but I had come back for the trip to be with Caroline. We hung out with Obama and Chandoo for that day and went out to lunch then we ended up arguing pretty late in the evening about Marxism and politics. Whether or not there would be a revolution, a Communist style revolution in the United States. The key takeaway there is that I may have been one of the first people in the world to confront Barack Obama’s kind of silly belief, Marxist idea that there was going to be an inevitable Communist revolution coming to the United States. I feel in my heart that I had persuaded him that that wasn’t in the cards and it wasn’t going to happen and at the end of that time he believed me. I think a bunch of us, Marxist-Communist style people were turned off by a Communist style revolution I think that Obama would have heard that from someone else eventually, but from his reaction, I think I was the first person that he could identify as an ally, and a friend and supporter who sincerely believes that there would never be a Communist style revolution. That debate I think helped Obama intellectually, but it helped seal the end of my romantic relationship with Marxism.”

LP; “Obama was a student there the whole time?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes he was a student at Occidental College and he was taking classes from Roger Boesche, who was a political theorist on campus. Roger was definitely a Socialist. Most of the students followed him as a Marxist revolutionary, but he was kind of precise with that and did not see himself as a Marxist. I would say that 100% of the students considered him to be a Marxist/Socialist.”

LP; “Obama had to have some sort of girlfriends, or was he kind of all alone.”

Dr. Drew; “I think this is very unusual but I can say that I saw Barack Obama about 3 or 4 other times on campus and off campus at parties. As God as my witness, I can say that I never saw Barack Obama with a young woman. I never saw any romantic connections with a young woman or even any socializing with a young woman that had a romantic nature.”

LP; “So he was pretty much by himself all the time?”

Dr. Drew; “I am just a small piece of the puzzle, but if I had ever seen him with a girl, I would be happy to say that, but I did not notice that. If anything I thought that the young Obama was kind of the feminine and he seemed to have a very strong emotional tie to Hasan Chandoo.”

LP; “Now did Chandoo have a girlfriend?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, Chandoo did have a girlfriend, her name was Margot Mifflin. It was kind of interesting that Chandoo had a girlfriend, Margot Mifflin, who is still in the news today, she is a professor at I think NYU. Caroline Boss had a boyfriend, me and I am in the news about Barack Obama, but there is not a single girl out there that says she was Obama’s girlfriend.”

LP; “I seem to recall an article you wrote about Obama riding in a big fancy car with

Dr. Drew; “Yes, Chandoo was very wealthy and he drove a very expensive, very nice luxury car. It was ten times better than the normal Occidental student would drive. One of my theories is that Barack Obama had a good time at Occidental College because of the financial generosity of Chandoo. That was one of the places that Obama learned that rich people would give him money just because he was a nice handsome ideologically consistent person.”

LP: “Do you know or did any one say he had a Visa when he was going to Occidental?”

Dr. Drew; “That I don’t have any knowledge of I don’t I called him Barry, but I don’t remember if he was introduced as Barry Soetoro or Barry Obama. I just remember I called him Barry and I don’t know anything about his citizen

LP; “How long did he hang around with Chandoo?”

Dr. Drew; “Chandoo is a life long friend of Barack Obama. Chandoo attended Obama’s marriage to Michelle, I think that was 1992 or 1993 or something like that. Chandoo was at their marriage and he was also at a recent Ramadan Dinner at the White House. He is one of those $600,000 bundlers for Obama. Chandoo has been a part of Obama’s life at least since 1980.”

LP; “So Chandoo is a bundler for Obama too?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, Chandoo would go out and raise contributions from people then put all those checks in a bundle, then deliver it over to the campaign headquarters.”

LP:” Is Chandoo a US Citizen or is he a Pakistani?”

Dr. Drew; “He is living in New York, in America.”

LP: “About how many hours had you spent with Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “I would say that altogether it was about 10 to 12 hours.”

LP; “During that time did Obama display the Marxist ideology?”

Dr. Drew; “We were confiding in each other the way people fight with each other people with major historical struggles in communicating, very down to earth, very honest. Like I said, I am ashamed of my Socialist/Marxist past, I have a conversion story which explains how I became a Christian, Constitutional Conservative. Barack Obama has no conversion story. There is a story about how he stopped being a Marxist, if anything his career, life shows an alarming consistency in his ideological extremism.”

LP; “Do you see the same Marxist ideology now with Barack Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, especially when he talks about the people holding on to their guns and religion because of economic stress. That is a Marxist idea. Everything he says about it being a good idea to spread the wealth around; that is Marxist/Socialist concepts. Some of the statements Obama makes about things inevitably get better, I think that is a Marxist ideological remnants.”

LP; “I noticed in one of your articles you said it would never happen but Obama said yes it will.”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, I remember that very clearly, even some 20 years later because he thought I was nuts. He thought that I was going against everything he had been taught at Occidental College. I persuaded him, I told Obama there has never been a revolution in Italy, France, Germany, why would you expect one here in America? I said revolutions only occur in backwards raring economies, like China, Vietnam or Russia, not in America.”

LP; “How did he accept your idea?”

Dr. Drew; “I think he believed that the economic stresses would pile up worse and worse and after the stresses built up they would just build up to a breaking point where a new group would take over the country. That would be a large group of workers, students, young people, those who were enlightened by Marxist/Socialist ideology would end up running things.”

LP: “Did Obama ever mention Cloward/Pivens?”

Dr. Drew; “No never did, but he might have bumped into her when he was at Columbia because she taught at Columbia. Part of my research disconcerns the Piven and Cloward teachings that welfare programs rise in reaction to violence and rioting from the lower class. I was able to show that that was not true in America. I perceive Obama as being an out and out liar; hiding his real views from the American people. I think those views are deeply objectionable to most people and I am shocked that more media attention hasn’t been focused on vetting Obama and getting down to brass tacks about how he really is.” (see additional information at end.(1))

LP: “Did Obama ever throw money around when he was with Chandoo?”

Dr. Drew; “He hung with Chandoo, but the impression I had with Obama was that they were both very wealthy. I thought that Barack Obama was a descendent from royalty from the way he carried himself. It did turn out that he did spend his summers on the grounds of the palace of the sultan of Jakarta in Indonesia. According to David Remnick,(“The Bridge, Alfred A. Knopf, 2010, page 104”), that is where Obama would spend his summers. So he actually did grow up on the grounds of an Indonesian Palace. Through his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, he actually had ties to the royal family.” (See addition below(2).)

Now with all this stated by Dr. Drew, one has to ask, has Barack Obama moved away from his Marxist, Radical, Socialist Ideology? Has Barack Obama, the man holding the highest office in the United States “hidden” his true agenda, the one he so proudly proclaimed while at Occidental College? One must now consider: just what are the President’s motives behind producing continued debt upon the United States? Is this meant to further what Dr. Drew so clearly remembers: End Capitalism?

These questions should have been asked in 2008. They must be answered in truth today as the American people continue daily to struggle with the Marxist/Socialist ideals foist upon them by Barack Hussein Obama dedicated to them, ideals which have yet to succeed in all of human history. Some pundits state this is a propaganda used historically by Marxist and Socialist regimes, using the single word “forward” as their base. Has Obama finally given America a true reflection of his days as a revolutionary radical Marxist/Socialist?

(1.) My take on Piven and Cloward is included in my published doctoral dissertation in this book, The American Welfare System: Origins, Structure, and Effects. I demonstrated that there was no relationship between street violence or riots and the later rise of the Progressive Era Mothers’ Pensions movement.”

(2.) Information about how Obama’s mother lived on the grounds of the palace of the Sultan of Yogyakarta is available in David Remnick’s book, The Bridge, on pages 84-88.

    to debtom Can't post by linking from your reply. You must have never experienced the old south and how things were. Fred Phelps should be interviewed but : one has to be law enforcement and read him his rights as far as I know never cleared asa a suspect as no investgations. Forget theHawaii record, He wasn't born there! Question is was the KS record used in any adoption by Soetoro asnd it may show that name Read my facebook accounts since 7/26/12 and in Daily recaps, None for 9/21/12. you have to know my family to understand children given fake bios and then never told. Its not good! One has to forgive their loved ones but whole world is about o explode over a fabrication. Christ speaks of mil stones around a child;s neck This is a big one. If I'd been directlt involved it just wouldn't have gone this far. Don't forget Bush 41 as CIA DIRECTOR AND FORD AND RUMSFELD back i the 70's setting this whoe mess up that could never create a real mid east peace based on lies.

  • Vietnam vet

    Robert_McNamara was all for the war in Vietnam during that war. Later on, he changed his mind and wrote a book about the war and how wrong it was. So if Obama, thought about Marxist ideas when he was young, and he changed his point of view as he got older, who in the heck are you to judge, you pretnetious horse's pitoot.

    • eagleeye

  • Cnutz

    America better wake up....We saw how they conducted themselves at the DNC....Socialism without religeon = Communism. That's just what we 're headed for if we don't turn this around. If he gets in there for another 4 yrs, he'll get what he wants...the fall of Capitolism and a revolution on his hands. A Revolution is what he will definately get.....I wonder if his followers would be willing to shed thier blood for what they believe in

  • Communism never died

    Marxist Lenninst Communism has never ceased to be a threat against America despite what has taken place in the USSR or the Berlin Wall coming down.Marxism is clearly ingrained in the highest levels in the federal gov t

  • Bobgood1

    The Democratic party has been hijacked by the Progressives. This is not the Party it use to be. Why was all of this information supressed, before the election by the MSM. They should lose their Journalism Degree. If the public knew Obamas' REAL background & phylosiphy, he wouldn't be Nominated.

  • ErnieLane

    This is almost under the radar . . .but there's a campaign ad in which Bill Clinton says Obama has a "plan to rebuild the country from the ground up." Folks, we need to fix some things, but I would maintain that we do _not_ need "to rebuild the country from the ground up."

  • stonemike

    This country will erupt in violence if we do not purge all progressives from our government! Myself and millions upon millions of patriotic Americans will not accept a militant socialist" takeover , we have but one more chance for the ballot to do the work of free people, if not, the bullet will come into play!

  • CB

    While this interview is interesting and enlightening, it loses a lot of credibility with its poor diction, syntax and punctuation. One of the most frequent errors is the misuse of the adjective "Marxist." "Marxist" is frequently misused as a noun. The correct form is "Marxism."

  • Stathi

    Get people to , take them if you have to, pay for the tickets if you have to!

  • coley

    What a ridiculous article. LP continually says he only spent one day with Obama. The rest of his comments are circumstantial based on the fact that he hung out with certain people, so he's "guilty by association." Wow, not to mention I've had different views over the years and they've changed. I used to think Republicans were normal and loved this country - unfortunately neither one of those feels true any longer. Their actions are unconscionable, obstructionist and unpatriotic.

  • messikinborder

    Obviously what Leon Puissegur is insinuating here is that your Prez Obama IS GAY! Yap, actually, he really does fit the mold. .. And of course his so called 'body-guy' , Reggie Love must be his main squeeze, huh?

  • Hispanics against Obama!

    People, we ( those who can see the truth) need to unite like never before in our modern history!! We need leaders to come forth and build a resistance to take our country back and,, to use the Liberals own catch phrase who want to re-elect Obama "by whatever means"! I was not born in the USA, but I will defend my country "from enemies foreign and DOMESTIC" as per the oaths I took, and Mr. Obama IS a domestic enemy (more like the Anti-Christ, if you ask me, but for that we will need to invoke a higher power to helps us).
