Dr Walter Semkiw, a physician practicing in San Francisco, claims that Barack Obama is the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln’s close aide Lyman Trumbull, who was an Illinois Democratic senator and the principal author of the Thirteenth Amendment, which put an end to slavery in the US.
Incidentally, Illinois is the state that Lincoln also represented and which Obama represents now. Semkiw, who has written two books on reincarnation “Return of the Revolutionaries”, focusing on cases of personalities reincarnated from the time of the American Revolution and “Born Again” which features reincarnation cases of Indian celebrities, says that he arrived at Obama’s past life in a similar manner through a combination of psychic sessions as well as background research.
On researching about Trumbull, says Semkiw, he found that there were many similarities between him and Obama. After finishing law school, Trumbull moved to Illinois in the 1830s, where he set up a practice. He represented African-American slaves many times against slave owners. In addition, says Semkiw, Trumbull was a great orator, one who could move people with his words a quality that Obama also possesses.
