One could read the book in a day. Larry Sinclair wrote this in haste; there are a few minor editing errors. And when you are finished you will want to know why this matter did not get cleaned up before Americans went to the polls in November 2008. The author has guts. He states he had a gay frolic with Barack H. Obama complete with illegal drug use more than once. Big problem here; the leader of the "free" world needs to be beyond reproach. We might forgive gay flings and drug use in the next-door neighbors but the President of the United States must not be open to blackmail. Yet Larry Sinclair outlines details of his gay frolics with drugs in 1999 in Chicago with the future President. Larry Sinclair writes that he asked Mr. Obama to make clear that he used drugs when Senator in 1999. Larry writes that the Obama campaign reacted by having a Mr. Young call him probing for information on who Larry talked to. Larry gives names, lists phone numbers and locations. Why would Larry want to have candidate Obama admit to drug use yet not demand an admission of a gay fling? The reason is not obvious. And then Mr. Young, Donald Young, gay choir director at Obama's Trinity United Church was murdered. Because Mr. Young knew several of Sinclair's phone numbers allegedly known to Mr. Obama, Larry disclosed his activities to the Chicago police expecting an investigation, not a cover-up. Following a press conference at the National Press Club Larry was arrested. Larry writes that Beau Biden, son of future Vice President Joe Biden conspired to bring an indictment for a crime that never happened. This from the Foreword by Jeff Rense:- ...as you read this astonishing book, prepare to think of it honestly and logically...for it will challenge you to do just that.Read more ›

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."July 18 2009
- Published on Amazon.com
[...]Sinclair's book would discuss his homosexual and cocaine sharing experiences with then Illinois State Senator Barack Obama in November 1999 and the events that followed after Sinclair's public disclosure of these events on YouTube in January 2008.
I had been following Sinclair's story on the Internet since February 2008. Having been a Press Officer in the US Army and an Internal Auditor, I was familiar with what can happen when the media turns against you and more importantly the patterns of people who tell the truth and those who don't. What impressed me most over the following nine months was Sinclair's story stayed the same, that on multiple occasions efforts were made to silence him on the Internet, and yet he persisted in the face of threats of murder to him and harm to members of his own family.
Yesterday, 14 July 2009, I received copy Number 81 of Sinclair's book, "Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?"
This books reeks of the truth and the words and style of Larry Sinclair. It is not "ghost-written". It is not a literary masterpiece and there are several typographical and grammatical mistakes. Most importantly it tells the true story of a man committed to exposing the truth. Sinclair pulls no punches and does not hide behind any equivocations about his past or his many flaws. He does provide very specific details about the dangerous journey he has taken to get the truth published, to speak truth to power. While parts of the book were previously published on his websites, he adds much more detail about what happened at the Democratic National Committee meeting in May 2008, the storm trooper tactics by the DC Metro Police after his appearance at the National Press Club in June 2008, the false charges initiated by Joe Biden's son, Attorney General Beau Biden in Delaware, the continued failure of the Chicago Police to investigate the murder of Donald Young in December 2007, the openly gay choir master of Obama's Trinity United Church of Christ, and of course the very specific details about President Obama's private parts.
It is shameful that the various mainstream media have refused to follow up on Sinclair's story, to challenge him on the facts, to challenge Joe and Beau Biden and the DC Metro Police on their false charges and imprisonment of Larry Sinclair in June 2008. Just imagine if they and the powerful interests they represent can do this to relatively unknown Larry Sinclair, what can they do to you?
"Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?" is a book worth reading for all those who seek the truth, an example of what a little, flawed man with incredible courage and persistence can achieve in speaking truth to power. Job well done.

Barack Obama and Larry SinclairAug. 7 2009
- Published on Amazon.com
I just got through reading the book "Barack Obama and Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?" and I believe every word of it. Not because I did not vote for Obama and because "I want to believe" that its true but because of all the "coverup" concerning Obama.
To me the "sex and cocaine use" is not that shocking. Obama said he did cocaine when in High School, Larry Sinclair says Obama did it in 1999. So Obama lied, this is not the only lie he tells the American people. Sinclair says that in 1999 he had oral sex with Obama. Again, no shocker, so Obama is bi-sexual and had an affair 10 yrs ago while marrried. Bill Clinton got BJ's underneath the desk in the Oval Office while married, two wrongs don't make it right and I am in no way condoning it, but also not shocked by it. For the people who say that this book is just a "repeat" from what Sinclair told on Youtube and at the NPC I say you are wrong if you only concentrate on the sex and the cocaine.
What is a LOT more important to me is how the media, reporters, the Obama machine are COVERING UP for Obama. Sinclair gives names of each reporter from different news agencies who repeatedly contacted him including from the NY Times, he gives names from the Obama camp, names of people who threatened him and his family. Phone numbers and copies of documents. THAT to me is more important than the sex and cocaine. Obama is not the first nor the last married man/politician engaging in this behavior, and it happened 10 yrs ago.
The COVER UP for Obama NOW is the most alarming to me. Which tells me and IMO is the SAME cover up as they are covering up about his birth certificate.
Larry Sinclair never changed his story, he stuck by it despite the death threats to him and his family, and I do believe him.
Last but not least about the polygraph Sinclair supposely failed you can read about that fraud in the book. Even if he had REALLY failed it, so what? Its not admissable in a court of law anyway.
Larry Sinclair did not hide anything about his criminal past, he is an open book, unlike Obama who IMO has lots of things to hide.
And what about Michelle Obama?? Why does she roll over?? She got the letter from Sinclair describing her husband's genitals. A copy of the letter as well as a copy of the "registered mail" receipt to the White House as well as the person who signed for this letter is in the book. Why is Sinclair NOT sued??? Could it be because its true????

You Make The Call!!April 26 2010

From the outset, I should say I am not on the "R" or "D" teams and I approached buying and reading this book from a biased yet informed perspective of the Obama phenomenon. Yes, I believe BHO is a fraud. And fraudulent, corrupt politicians make for the best power-elite-controlled Presidents because someone always has something on them. They consequently exist in office compromised and dangerous to the general public.
Ok, with that said, I'll continue. I had no idea what to expect when this book arrived. I had been predisposed to expect, due to the "scurrilous" nature of the material, that it would be in Mongo-style (from Blazing Saddles, "sign please") handwritten chicken-scratch. But, to the contrary, it's intelligently written.
In the Foreword, radio host Jeff Rense leaves it up to the reader to come to their own conclusion concerning Mr. Sinclair's story. Although Rense does take the account very seriously and guarantees that "you'll never forget it."
This "Tell-All" first-person account is one that no publisher that Sinclair approached, would touch. He started his own Sinclair Publishing, Inc in order to get it out. Does that mean it's "too hot" or just "too unsupported"? Who knows.
It was interesting how LS's tone, as the one making the accusations, seems to be more that of "the accused." You feel as if LS is on trial here, not Obama/Soetoro (Note: When I see a name change document back to "Barack Hussein Obama II" from Barry Soetoro, I'll feel more at ease about the name Obama). Sinclair's account begins with him coming clean about his sordid crimes committed from 1980-1986. He eventually finds himself in Gurnee, Illinois where he meets a man he claims to be O/S. After LS "spills the beans" about the 2 days in November '99 in question, the remainder of the book has LS in the defensive position due to the comparatively much more well-funded, and completely outnumbering counter-attack.
LS's account is very detailed, supplying legal documents (mostly pertaining to the smear campaign against him), documents pertaining to his questioned whereabouts, all the while naming names and pulling no punches. The "Murder?" part in the title refers to the story/claim of O/S having a long-time affair with a man named Donald Young. Young was an ex-choir director for Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Christian Church, which O/S attended for around 20 years. Young was ultimately murdered on 12/23/07 in his home by an unknown assailant. LS accuses that O/S and Wright were somehow involved.
I feel the need to impart three of the more noteworthy passages of the book (there are many). The first is Chicago Tribune reporter John Crewdson telling LS that he had spoken to David Axelrod, who Crewdson had known for 25 years. Axelrod had told Crewdson that the Obama camp was determined to connect LS to the (Hillary)Clinton camp and that they would "destroy" LS before they allowed his claims to see the light of day. This "Clinton connection" strategy would be an example of intended deception from Team Obama via Axelrod. The second is an interesting business connection between the "man-party limo" driver Multani and Tony Rezko brought to LS's attention by an "unnamed" Bloomberg News reporter. And the third a quote from one of LS's lawyers Francis Farren: "Larry Sinclair was threatened with his life, and he still stood his ground."
LS's accusations bring to mind the issue of libel. Some might say, "If LS is lying, why doesn't O/S sue for libel?" and someone else could say "Why would he? And draw more attention to LS and his -he said/she said- B.S.?" Make of that what you will.
Towards the end of the book, LS reprints a letter he authored and mailed to Michelle Obama via USPS and was accepted at 1651 Penn Ave including allegedly specific details of O/S's "manhood"! Yeesh!
Much of the surrounding elements of LS's story was stated to be verified by Crewdson and others but, without corroborating testimony from the limo driver or any other first-hand witness(es) to the events that allegedly took place (from 11/6 to 11/7, 1999) or recorded phone conversations with other key people thereafter, I doubt a definite conclusion could ever be reached from LS's account alone.
If nothing else, "Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies, & Murder?" does make for a VERY interesting read. And a quick one. The book is 194 or so pages but, the lines are double-spaced in what seems to be a larger font size than I'm used to. This book should really be the size of Smedley Butler's "War Is A Racket" but, they fluffed it's size.
So whether or not you're a fan of O/S, you'll at least get to see what the establishment political Party machines, Democratic or Republican, can do to one person standing against them.

Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies and Murder?Aug. 22 2009

I had followed Larry Sinclair's story with interest since shortly after he posted his video on You Tube. As I followed the story, I never saw him deviate one time from what he had originally said . He did not hold back anything about his criminal past.
As I watched Barack Obama during the primary season, I had the same uneasy feeling in my gut that I had when I first saw him making the keynote address during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. My gut feeling is something that has never failed me and I had a strong gut feeling about this person. My gut feeling about Barack Obama is even stronger and his actions since he began occupying the White House have confirmed that this gut feeling is 100 percent correct. This man has no business being President of the United States of America.
I read Larry's blogs on a daily basis. I saw the death threats that he, his mother and friends were exposed to. I saw the harassment that he received and I saw that through it all, Larry's resolve was the same, just as his story was the same.
Several friends and I could not understand why the main stream media would not report on this story. There have been many other instances of this type where they jumped on it like a dog on a bone, but not this one because Obama is the media's darling and only he could make them have a thrill go up their leg.
When Larry was arrested in Washington, D. C. there was no doubt in my mind that it was a trumped up charge and that the powers that be were trying to shut him up. It was astonishing to me to see the lengths that Obama's Chicago Corruption Machine went to to discredit, harass and harm Larry Sinclair. His social security disability benefits were stopped. I asked myself many times, just as I have asked myself why people in America could vote for this fraud Obama, why can't people see what is going on here?
When Larry began writing his book, I was excited. I asked myself, why would someone who was running for President of the United States of America not file a lawsuit for libel and defamation of character against someone making the claims Larry was making if they were not true. I answered my own question when I realized that if Obama did that, he would have to go to court and he, for the first time, would have the eyes of the nation and the world upon him, for all the wrong reasons and if he lied, he could be in really bad legal trouble. I knew that Barack Obama would never file suit against Larry Sinclair and I knew he would never discuss the situation publically. I guess he thought if he ignored it, Larry would go away.
Well Larry didn't go away. He struggled to get his book published because of the strong arm tactics that the Chicago Corruption Machine put on the tentative publishers. Larry prevailed through all of this and was able to establish his own publishing company and true to his word, was able to get his book published and his story out there for the entire world to see.
I ordered the book and was elated when I got an email that it would be here sooner than expected. I received it late in the afternoon and could not put it down until I had read every word. It was everything I expected and more.
Due to the economic situation, some of my friends could not afford to buy the book. I couldn't afford it, but I had to have it. My friends really wanted to read it so after I read it I sent it to a friend in Maine. She read it and sent it to another friend in Missouri. She read it and sent it to West Virginia and when she finishes it will go to either Indiana or Louisiana. This book started out in Texas.
While it would have been better to sell more copies of the book, I feel sure Larry will be more than grateful that we have shared this book to allow more people to read his story.
Thank you Larry Sinclair for standing up to Barack Obama and his Chicago Corruption Machine. May God richly bless you and may you now get the rest you so richly deserve.

Wow. Where do I start? I found this interesting. Do I believe it? I lean toward Yes. I wasn't prepared for this story, I am just trying to figure out who Barack Obama is. I stumbled on to this book and the title did stir my curiosity.
Yes. I think that there are those in control that can make anything happen or anyone go away. We have a long history of underground "clubs". Larry Sinclair has been through hell and back defending himself, with this book his side appears to be stated. I can't imagine why someone would make this up. Everyone deserves the chance to have their side heard. I couldn't do what he has been through, the battle would take me out. How do you remember so many little details? There were parts I felt hit the too much information edge, but I understand why he felt it was important to include. Is this stream of events possible? Yes.
Sadly we have innocent people now that are unable to fight the system and prove the truth of their circumstance. It is the way of our world.
I believe that hidden adgenda and power is in our society, alive and functioning. Power and money go hand in hand with corruption and of course greed. I am taking into consideration other reading and research about Obama I have done, I'm still learning. Sooo have we been fooled? I think it is possible. Is Obama capable of what is in this book? I think that is also possible. Is there anything we can do about it? I don't think so. That protective bubble that surrounds "those in power" is difficult to penitrate.
All we can do is study the people running for office with all the resources available and pray that we have all the information on them. In the end the corrupt will take each other out...
