Barack Obama proposed to a woman who rejected him not once but twice … before he met Michelle — this according to a new biography.

The woman is Sheila Miyoshi Jager. David Garrow, author of the new book, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” says Obama met Jager in the mid-’80s when he was doing community organizing in Chicago.

Jager, of Dutch and Japanese ancestry, told Garrow even back then, Obama had a strong belief he’d someday become President of the United States. She also told the author Obama had “a deep-seated need to be loved and admired.”

She says in 1986 Obama asked her to marry him, but her parents were opposed because they thought she was too young. She said no, but they continued dating.

Then, Garrow says, Obama’s presidential ambitions became a centerpiece of their relationship, causing a conflict because he worried a non-African-American spouse would do him political damage.

Garrow says he “felt trapped between the woman he loved and the destiny he knew was his.”

Obama went to Harvard Law School in 1988 and the relationship was on the ropes, but Jager says Obama again asked her to marry him before he left, but she was off on a research trip to Seoul and rejected his proposal.

Obama fell for Michelle after their first year in law school but, according to Garrow, he was still occasionally seeing Jager.

As for Jager, she’s a professor of East Asian Studies at Oberlin College. And there’s this fun fact: Her book, “Iraqi Security Forces and Lessons from Korea” was on Osama bin Laden‘s bookshelf in the compound where Seal Team Six killed him



A Nigerian man from oyigbo local government area in Rivers State has cried out loud when he was been interviewed by BLOGJIST, and he said he will kill his neighbor if MMM did not pay him his money before the end of February.

“I will kill my neighbor if MMM did not pay me my money before the end of February” he said.

He also said that it was because of the money that made him not to travel with his family during the x-mas period.

“I borrowed the money from a friend of mine named Uche, I promised to pay him back his N120,000 in the next 30days. I was forced by my neighbor named Henry to join this nonsense MMM, I never wanted to do it but he told me he has make a lot of money from it.

I had to make my first move by starting with N120,000 which I borrowed from my friend Uche. He never wanted to give me the money but I promise to pay him back in the next 30days” 

Later, I had that MMM has crash while some are saying they went for vacation. I was trembling inside me, I fasted for 1week, i was unable to travel with my families during the Xmas period.

 On the 14th of  January I had that MMM have resume work I was very very happy, by then Uche has started requesting for his money, and I told him to came down I will pay him his money, with the hope that I will collect my money back” 

He also said that Uche locked him up in the cell for some weeks because he was unable to pay his dept.

“Uche locked me up in the cell cause I was unable to pay him back his money, my family members went around looking for mins to bring me out. I came back yesterday evening after they have finish paying my dept”

He also pleaded for Uche to forgive him for making him not to travel also during the Xmas period.

“I want to say am very very sorry to you my friend Uche cause I made you not to travel during the Xmas period at least to see your mother”

And he vows to kill his neighbor where ever he see’s him if MMM did not pay him his money before the end of February.

“And as for Henry, you introduce me to MMM now I can’t be proud of N100 you have the god’s to eat my money, for this I swear when ever I get you I will be the last person you will see on earth cause i will kill you if MMM did not pay me back my  money before the end of February”
