Where in the World is Obama's Missing Thesis?

July 31, 2008 Where in the World is Obama's Missing Thesis? Ed Lasky

Barack Obama wrote his senior thesis at Columbia University on Soviet nuclear disarmament. Inquiring people have sought a copy of this thesis to no avail. Columbia says it cannot be found; Barack Obama says he lost it.

How likely is that a person so impressed with himself that he writes an autobiography just a few years later would "lose" his senior thesis? After all, a Presidential Library must be filled. And as Jim Geraghty at National Review and others have noted there are a lot of blank spots -- missing records and the like -- having to do with Barack Obama.

But one question remains. If Barack Obama devoted a year researching and writing about Soviet nuclear disarmament, how could he fail to get the facts down about the Kennedy-Khrushchev meeting in Vienna?

Maybe there are good reasons he wants to bury this thesis. Did he get it wrong there,too? Did he just coast at Columbia on his interesting background and personal charm?

A conspiracy theorist with a SciFi bend could utilize many facts now to claim that Obama is an artificial construct, grown from a single cell into an adult within 24 hours (that it took to fly from Phaeton to Earth,) and programmed with just enough skills to complete his mission. He has no history on Earth because he wasn't here until he was dropped off.

I’m not sure what the practice was at Columbia for senior theses while Obama was there.

When I went to Harvard, honors candidates wrote a senior thesis, but unlike PhD dissertations only a select few of these theses were chosen to be stored in the library. (Mine was selected.)

But it’s a bit hard to believe that Obama didn’t keep a copy, considering how much he loves himself.

Hey, Obama is also a Magician. He appeared out of thin air, and now is like the Wizard of Oz before he was exposed as a fraud.

This is going to be fun.

Jerry Corsi’ book on “The Obamanation” is now out in print. I suggest that you get a copy now.

I don’t think one needs to be a “conspiracy theorist with a SciFi bent” to come to those conclusions. All the existing “facts” that coalesce around the Obama phenomenon support something very similar to your formulation..
Obama is literally a construct, and has happily found that he doesn’t need to be much more than that to gain a huge following that vows it will vote for him, and a major Political Party to support and protect him in his quest for the Presidency. And that enumeration of “secret” documents, never released, never discussed, never probably to be released, makes me think of how many other Dems have managed to do an end-run around these issues, and how they get away with it, and continue to get away with it.
But that list of Obama’s is more comprehensive by a mile than anything surrounding Clinton or John Kerry. It’s just mind-boggling.

And, changing subject slightly...

If Hillary gets the VEEP selection, then I suspect that she has much of the above in her "files", and let Obama know it.

Illinois State Senate records – “not available”

Illinois State Senate schedule – “not available”

From http://larrysinclair0926.com/2001.html
THE FOLLOWING IS AN EMAIL THAT ROGER ASKED TO BE POSTED

I just got off the phone with the Obama Senate offices in DC. I asked for a calendar and itinerary regarding Mr. Obama’s where-bout’s on the nights in question.

As it turns out they claim that no history of his travels at that time are available.

BS
I can promise you that every politician and elected official at the State or Federal level in this country has a calendar of events and require staff to keep accurate history logs of their activities. Almost without exception.

I asked if they could provide other dates and there does appear to be a record of those????

C’mon .. Obviously if the Obama folks won’t account for the dates in question, that alone, more than supports Larry’s claim and therefore as the only sane person in the debate .. I am ruling on this here and now
by the powers invested in be by the international assembly of Talk Show Host Gods.. “I find Obama GUILTY as charged in the “Open Court of Common Sense”.

His drunken druggie escapades with gay men in the back of Limo’s will probably continue because his sopporters don’t care if he exploits or even murders gays, I find the Mitch and Nan crowd to be anti-gay (which I am also). They have a violent bias and lack the needed sensitivity in this desperate reaching out for closure by this tormented soul Larry Sinclair.

You all Owe Larry an apology, a hug and a kiss and an atta-Boy for outing Barrack Obama for the dope-addicted pervert Larry Describes. My Israeli made voice detection truth machine software shows Larry is telling the truth and they are lying. It’s Clear they (The Obama Staff) were lying .. I could hear it in her voice .. and I am an expert at detecting the lie .. And this software
of mine is always right.

That should settle the matter once and for all ...

God Bless
Roger Fredinburg

"But it’s a bit hard to believe that Obama didn’t keep a copy, considering how much he loves himself."

Perhaps Obama - in a rare moment of honest self appraisal - realized his paper was inferior and it was hidden/destroyed as an act of self defense.

He saw what happened to Michelle, when her sub-standard paper was released and ridiculed.

All evidence of being a quota or Affirmative Action admission has to be kept from the public.....because they would clash with the myth of his supreme intellect and omnipotent leadership.

That -- and the possibility his papers and records would reveal an Obama "he didn't know".....and end up having to throw himself under the bus....

I think, given the lack of documentation of his past, that his original motto --

Exactly what I thought when I went down through the list. The Britney/Paris ad was cute because undecideds could see it and just laugh it off as being silly.

On the other hand, running a TV commercial that shows he’s hiding EVERYTHING will galvanize the theme that the McCain camp has been recently running like no other message can.

Nothing better than showing that he is hiding his ENTIRE past to demonstrate that he can never be trusted as president.

Great Post Seaplaner:
Your list is really a brilliant idea for a relatively inexpensive yet very effective campaign ad.
I’d encourage you to contact the Mack campaign or whatever group and get moving on this. The list could be read by a deep, deep authoritarian judge-type voice such as that of James Earl Jones.
Please consider this or at the very least turn it into a Youtube commercial.

To: dascallie; All

small correction to the author’s list (but he makes great points about Obambi’s curious empty record and lack of paper trail):

“Harvard College” is not the proper name - that is the undergraduate college only, within the larger university, but Obambi did not attend Harvard undergrad, he attended Occidental and then transferred to Columbia and received his degree there.

The Harvard reference in the list should only be to “Harvard Law School” which is the correct name for the law school program Obambi attended to obtain the J.D. degree.

Just in case anyone is lurking from American Thinker or can get them to correct the mistake.

I find it hard to believe that Columbia does not require a copy to be submitted to the library at the time the thesis is accepted by the department (maybe it has been deep-sixed by an Obambi cultist in the library system, but someone should find out whether Columbia normally shelves undergrad honors theses. I know for a fact that Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford do so (except for the suddenly ‘unavailable’ Chelsea Clinton thesis which would have proved her mother to be a liar about the Northern Ireland peace process).

Well, yes. In other words you can account for the thesis being missing because he wanted to hide it from public view—for whatever reason.

It was Marxist, or it was poorly written and filled with misspellings, or it got some pretty dreadful comments in the margins from his instructor, or some other reason that would show him in less than the best light.
