David Maraniss book ‘The Story’
“He was a long-haired haole hippie who worked at the Mama Mia Pizza Parlor not far from Punahou and lived in a dilapidated bus in an abandoned warehouse. … According to Topolinski, Ray the dealer was “freakin’ scary.” Many years later they learned that he had been killed with a ball-peen hammer by a scorned gay lover. But at the time he was useful because of his ability to “score quality weed.”
In another section of the [senior] yearbook, students were given a block of space to express thanks and define their high school experience. … Nestled below [Obama’s] photographs was one odd line of gratitude: “Thanks Tut, Gramps, Choom Gang, and Ray for all the good times.” … A hippie drug-dealer made his acknowledgments; his own mother did not.”
CF: You were an undergraduate at Columbia University, as was the president. Do you ever compare notes?
JK: No. His undergraduate time at Columbia remains one of the great mysteries of his biography. Only a handful of people from Columbia remember him, and, those who do, remember him faintly. His time at Columbia seems to have been very monastic. This comes back to something that is a real theme in the book, which is that he’s a fairly solitary figure…. He generally has dinner with his family at 6:30. After dinner, he spends a little bit of time with his family, but then he works. He goes into the Treaty Room, which is his private office at the White House. It’s a real working office. The Oval Office is a little like a stage set. The Treaty Room has a computer and a printer, and it has a TV where he’ll put the basketball game on in the background. He makes a lot of really important presidential decisions there. It’s the opposite of Bill Clinton, who would pick up the phone at one in the morning and call somebody.”
President Obama is creating a post-American world - one that is ushering in the dominance of China. Mr. Obama is fostering U.S. economic and military decline while simultaneously empowering Beijing’s rise to superpower status. China’s communists are on the march. Unless Americans wake up to the growing threat, both internal and external, our victory in the Cold War will have been useless.
This is the disturbing theme of “Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama Is Hastening America’s Decline and Ushering a Century of Chinese Domination,” by Brett M. Decker, editorial page editor of The Washington Times, and William C. Triplett II, a best-selling author and renowned China analyst. Lucid, concise and comprehensively researched, the book is a fire bell in the night. It is a dire warning that China has become what America once was to Great Britain: the ambitious upstart determined to eclipse the global colossus. The result will be not only the end of the American moment, but the triumph of a belligerent authoritarian communism hostile to democracy and the West.
“China’s leaders are engaged in a war against America. They view us as a threat to their regime and way of life. Hence, they have embarked on a systematic, long-term program to surpass us militarily, economically and politically,” Mr. Decker said in an interview. “They are willing to do anything - purchase our national debt, steal our intellectual property, spend obscene amounts to buy influence in Washington, engage in extensive espionage in our government and large corporations, and sell sensitive missile and nuclear technology to our mortal enemies - to defeat us. And the Obama administration is turning a blind eye.”

A new book
The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labor…The social atmosphere is that of a besieged city, where the possession of a lump of horseflesh makes the difference between wealth and poverty. And at the same time the consciousness of being at war, and therefore in danger, makes the handing-over of all power to a small caste seem the natural, unavoidable condition of survival.
