Skip to comments.Can Anyone Vouch for Obama’s History ? What About His Columbia Records ?
Posted on 10/25/2009 8:52:05 PM PDT by RobinMasters
It is already known that nobody has stepped forward to vouch for witnessing or being connected to Mr. Obamas birth as alleged to have been in some Hawaiian hospital. And now it appears that nobody seems to while some individuals associated with Columbia University seem to remember their fellow classmate at Columbia University (see the mixed and varied commentary associated with this posting), nobody appears to be able to vouch for his records.
The Anti-Mullah blog posted this story last Sunday; I did some further research to find out from whence they pulled much of the verbiage in their posting.
First, Reason.com posted an article back in September, 2008 in which they interviewed the Libertarian Party Vice Presidential candidate, Wayne Allen Root (poignantly excerpted quotes):

“What About His Columbia Records?”
Aw, he just didn’t send the postcards back in time from the Columbia House Record Club, like the rest of us.
Someone on Twitter just told me this is a hoax to trap Conservatives.
No doubt Soros was there.
Heh...Yes...it is always wrong to question the MSM...what the heck are you thinking! After all, the questions that are being asked are being answered aren’t they? Well, how about they will be answered sometime in the future... Ok, how about eventually...?
Enemies list, anyone?
In September 08 :
AOL couldn’t wait to have headlines claiming Rush fell for a hoax.. The Left is creepy and disturbing.
As much as I believe that the Bamster is hiding something major related to his birth, the Columbia story is fales. I have a business associate who attended Columbia with the Bamster, as well as Harvard Law. He used to play basketball with him there. I know this to be a fact as I attended a fundraiser my associate threw for Obama, prior to his getting the nomination. This is beyond dispute. As far as anything else 0 has done or will do I express no opinion.
True...but in defense, they could not be bothered to report anything that was against Oboma OR their views... so I guess we are at a stalemate regarding the MSM. Hopefully FOX news will cover it though...
“hoax to trap Conservatives”
Trap me, trap me first. If it will give me “standing” in the eyes of the law; trap me now and often.
"The Obama campaign declined to discuss Obama's time at Columbia and his friendships in general. It won't, for example, release his transcript or name his friends. It did, however, list five locations where Obama lived during his four years here: three on Manhattan's Upper West Side and two in Brooklyn one in Park Slope, the other in Brooklyn Heights. His memoir mentions two others on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
In about 1982, Siddiqi and Obama got an apartment at a sixth-floor walkup on East 94th Street. Siddiqi managed to get the apartment thanks to subterfuge.
"We didn't have a chance in hell of getting this apartment unless we fabricated the lease application," Siddiqi said.
Siddiqi fudged his credentials, saying he had a high-paying job at a catering company, but Obama "wanted no part of it. He put down the truth."
Andrew Roth knew Obama at Occidental and in New York. He speaks bluntly: "The thought, believe me, never crossed my mind that he would be our first black president."
Ay...come on fellow..do you really think that your information is news? Come on now... that is just gossip and does not warrant coverage (hello FOX)...

Who is Obama? Really, I'm serious, who is he? Where did he come from? What is his allegience?
"Frank Chapman, a CPUSA supporter, wrote a letter to the party newspaper hailing the Illinois senator's victory in the Iowa caucuses:
"Obamas victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle. Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary 'mole,' not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through."
from: People's Weekly World (PWW), official newspaper of the Communist Party, USA..."
How did he get a Security Clearance? Does he have one? I repeat, to whom or what is his primary Allegience? . . .
I know.. Hope FoxNews does a story on this so we can know what the heck is really going on! :)
He’ll have no Epic records either.
The Left tries to trap Conservatives with Lies.. The Right successfully traps the Left with the Truth.. Heh.
obambi scored great grades in scoring some cocaine for him and Larry Sinclair and then getting gay with him too.
The news as reported by AP and Politico. I am sure Axelrod fed them this stuff. Note the date.
Amen...I am waiting...(Hey Glenn... what are you doing today? hehe).
Yes! Thank goodness we have some new agencies that have not been bought! Go FOX!
Why do you express on opinion on zero? What else do you know about him?
Actually, he recorded for ASYLUM RECORDS. Several of his albums went guano.
I have no doubt that Obama graduated from Columbia. Did your friend tell you anything of Obama’s association involvement or political activities during the Columbia years?
And I know that aliens have landed on earth. This is beyond dispute. I have a friend who saw them, spoke to them, and visited their space ship. This is beyond dispute.
if this is a hoax, and he did indeed attend, then there should be no problem releasing the records.
until the records are released, you have to stick with what you have... which is nothing.
to the best of my knowledge, the only record produced so far is of his elementary school in indonesia. does anyone have any actual proof, available prior to 2004, that he attended any other schools? (and by proof i don’t mean his book)
There are no f*cking records. Its all made up. Obama was created to be a sleeper. We just empowered him beyond ALL expectations of either side. There is a reason why Pannetta is at Langley today... The Yaleys are out on their *sses...
Graduating is one thing. Studying is another. Diplomas can be issued to people who have never set foot on campus. All it takes is money and an agenda...
Why will you express no opinion?
This stuff has been around for a while. They are just re-releasing it for some reason. I think we will find out the reason soon.
Perhaps Obambi's the democrat's fall guy. They still have Biden, Pelosi, and Reid (for now). They'll put all their failures on Obama's shoulders and then throw him under the bus. It's their way.
I bet Obama had some Columbia records. Maybe some RCA too. And you KNOW he had some Motown records.
Probably the most cogent and concise summary of the real situation I've seen. A scary situation we're in. Is he sending our top secrets to Russia and China? What are Rahm, Alelrod and Valerie planning behind the scenes? Every day puts America more at risk. What are they planning for us? What can we do to change it?
And the article said he listened to Van Morrison, the Ohio Players, and Bob Dylan, too. So he also had those records.
Diplomas can be issued to people who have never set foot on campus. All it takes is money and an agenda...
Agreed. The same applies to a lesser extent to Foreign Exchange Studies at Columbia University.
Just as may be the case with Judge Carter's new Legal Clerk, Siddharth Velamoor, a young Barack Obama could have participated in the foreign studies programs offered through Columbia University in the early 80s.
Obama may have taken full advantage of his mother being in Indonesia and using a passport through her and her step-father Lolo Soetoro. Although the Soetoro's divorced in 1980, it's quite possible Obama retained those privileges under Islamic Indonesian law.
Obama's mother, Ann Dunhan, had many international ties that could have helped with her son's international studies as well. Dunhams employment included teaching English at the American embassy in Jakarta, consulting (setting up a village credit program) for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID, also known as the International Development Agency), program officer specializing in womens work for the Ford Foundation in Jakarta, bank consulting work in Pakistan (microfinance programs for the poor), and employment with Womens World Banking.
Conceivably, ANY foreign university is possible, as long as it could be accepted and justified by Columbia University. The Global Public Policy Network, the Utrecht Network, or other Foreign Exchange networks jointly recognized by the schools allows for A LOT of flexibility.
Obama could have gotten a lot of assistance from Columbia to participate in foreign exchange college programs from people like:
- his professor Edward Said, a pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel, political activistWaivers from the department or college Deans would make it easy for a young, pioneering minority-status student to be accepted into virtually any school overseas. Such waivers would eliminate or reduce any issues regarding Honors requirements, admission standards, program prerequisites, etc.
Further, ONLY the schools, the student and anyone who's seen the student's FULL transcript would even know the student was in foreign studies overseas. If one did not have access to the college transcript, the diploma would simply indicate "Master of Arts, Political Science, Columbia University" with NO indication of the foreign studies. I think it's less likely that Obama could have done this while at Occidental, but it's VERY possible while at Columbia and even Harvard (at least for a couple of semesters and/or summer sessions).
This is from a Columbia archive from the 90s:
Student-Initiated Study Abroad Guidelines
Very possible scenario, especially since
no one remembers him at all at Columbia.
But even back before the election, there were
some in the media who had not drunk the KoolAid ..
curious piece, the subject of which some blogs out
there wondered what the 2 hr. Miami ‘idling’ time
was all about.
FR thread - Post #120:
Somewhat tongue-in-cheek piece:
T’S A HARD KNOCK LIFE
Warning: readers may find some of the details in this story distressing
A CBS reporter complains about Barack Obama’s smelly campaign plane
It’s important to remember that this election isn’t just about the glitz and the glamour of the conventions and the debates, or the self-indulgent speculations of the punditocracy: it’s about real people — real people who are suffering. And few can be suffering more acutely than award-winning CBS Evening News correspondent Dean Reynolds, who’s been putting a brave face on things for months, but who now finally lets his anger and frustration erupt all over the CBS From The Road blog:
The Obama aides who deal with the national reporters on the campaign plane are often overwhelmed, overworked and un-informed about where, when, why or how the candidate is moving about.
Baggage calls are preposterously early with the explanation that it’s all for security reasons.
If so, I would love to have someone from Obama’s campaign explain why the entire press corps, the Secret Service, and the local police idled for two hours in a Miami hotel parking lot recently because there was nothing to do and nowhere to go.
It was not an isolated case.
If you’ve recently received a home foreclosure notice, or you can’t afford to fill your car with gas, you’ll certainly sympathise with the appalling experiences Reynolds has been enduring as one of the downtrodden reporters forced to occupy a seat on Obama’s press plane:
Nor is there much sympathy for those of us who report for a newscast that airs in the early evening hours. Our shows place a premium on live reporting from the scene of campaign events. But this campaign can often be found in the air and flying around at the time the “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” is broadcast.
Hard to believe, I know, but it gets worse. Reynolds recently spent a few days on the McCain plane, and the contrast was so stark that it made him feel even more upset, frustrated and depressed:
The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama’s, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated.
For a moment towards the end of his tale of woe, Reynolds seems to waver, as if wondering whether, in this harsh world, anyone will take any notice of his cry for help:
Maybe none of this means much.
But it lasts only a moment. Then he picks himself up, takes a deep breath, rediscovers his courage, and reminds himself that one day — maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday — the law of Karma will catch up with Barack Obama, and the horrors he has inflicted will be met with an equal and opposite retaliation:
...in politics, everything that goes around comes around.
This is undeniably true:
justice will triumph in the end. And this is what allows us, even in our darkest hours, to stay hopeful and strong.
Because no matter how much pain and misery may be inflicted by those in power upon those they oppress, the indomitable human spirit will always win out eventually, especially when it is the indomitable human spirit of the award-winning CBS news reporter Dean Reynolds.
If he’s the most brilliant President ever he should be proud to release his transcripts like GW did.
Pray for America’s Freedom
Yep - the "left" always thinks their people are soooooo smart. Let's see those grades...
May God give us the strength to prevail.
Other than his physical presence, he does not exist.....
( Obama stands down on missile sheilds for Poland, Czechoslovakia etc, No Nuclear treaty with Iran because the Russiand won;t help,, Obama looses Karzai to the Russians by trying to rig the Afghan election Chicago style for Abdhullah, Karzai's opponent, Karzai wins BTW, and Obama will exit Afghanistan leaving it to the Russians. COUNT THESE)
Putin: 3 Obama: Zero ( bumpkiss with 100 dead US soldiers while Obama awaits the Afghan election results. PUTIN OWNS OBAMA)
Oh yeah! It hopefully will happen at the polls, and if not, then it will happen some other way.
The nation has had its fill of Barak Hussein Obama.
| Putin, BTW, owns Obama and Obama doesn't even know it.
Obama fits the classic clinical definition of a “Pleaser” (he just compartmentalizes to people he seeks approval from).
The “Pleaser's” intense, narrow focus is protecting Shamed, Abandoned, and Scared young sub-selves from the agony of social rejection, scorn, disapproval, criticism, and dislike.
If Obama could NOT get it as easily as he does now from the MSM, he'd sell his soul for a favorable news article voicing approval of him.
Narcissism often acts as a mask for a "pleaser's" POOR self-esteem.
