President Barack Obama’s past has been called into question over the six-plus years of his presidency. The odd lack of verifiable records has been the subject of more than one conspiracy theory. But an old high school friend of Obama from Hawaii, Mia Marie Pope, has dropped a bombshell concerning how our current president identified himself in high school, which could lead to answers to many questions concerning his past. She described to radio show host James Manning in extremely detailed fashion that, having grown up in Hawaii, she knew Obama as a slightly older classmate who went by the name “Barry Soetoro,” a crack smoker who labeled himself as a foreigner and was very much intertwined with the gay community on the island of Oahu. Pope went on to say that it was “common knowledge” among her circle of friends and other classmates that “Barry” wasn’t interested in anything to do with the opposite sex. “As a young girl, as a teenager, it was very clear to me that Barry was strictly into men.” She also stated that in addition to his sexual preferences and drug habits, he was also a pathological liar, “much like he still is today,” according to Pope. As far as the drug use, Pope painted a picture of the 70s when marijuana was fairly common but drugs such as cocaine were not — mainly due to their cost. She said that when Barry would brag about having cocaine, which was odd due to the fact that her social circle was made up mostly of relatively broke islanders, it was likely the result of his sexual relations with wealthy white men. While her story may seem outlandish and unbelievable, one has to consider the shocking amount of realistic detail that Pope relayed to the host. It certainly sounds like she believes her own account to be accurate. Which doesn’t make it so, of course.
