Interesting Questions About Obama
email | June 24, 2011 | unknown

Posted on 06/26/2011 7:22:50 PM PDT by econjack

This came from a union guy in Chicago who didn't vote for Obama. Very, very interesting perspective that I never thought of in this light.

It will be interesting to see what they put in his "Presidential Library" or "Presidential Mosque" about his early years when he is out of office.

In a country where we take notice of many, many facets of our public figures' lives, doesn't seem odd that there's so little we know about our current president, Barack Obama. For example, we know that Andrew Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery; Abe Lincoln never went to school; Jack Kennedy wore a back brace; Harry Truman played the piano.

As Americans, we enjoy knowing details about our newsmakers, but none of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own president.

We are all aware of the lack of uncontestable birth records for Obama; that document managing has been spectacularly successful. There are however, several additional oddities in Obama's history that appear to be as well managed as the birthing issue.

It's interesting that no one who ever dated him has shown up. The charisma that caused women to be drawn to him so strongly during his campaign, certainly would in the normal course of events, lead some lady to come forward, if only to garner some attention for herself. We all know about JFK's magnetism, that McCain was no monk and quite a few Details about Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess Joe Biden's aneurysms are no secret; look at Cheney and Clinton, we all know about their heart problems.. Certainly Wild Bill Clinton's exploits before and during his White House years, were well known.

That's why it's so odd that not one lady has stepped up and said, "He was soooo shy..." or "What a great dancer..."

It's virtually impossible to know anything about this fellow.

Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Then check groomsmen.

Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony. Has anyone talked to the professors? It is odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

When did he meet Michele, and how? Are there photos there? Every president gives to the public all their photos, etc. for their library, etc. What has he released? And who in hell voted for him to be the most popular man in 2010? Doesn't this make you wonder?

Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from President Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc??

Not one person has ever come forward from his past. It certainly is very, very strange...

This should be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him, you may have elected an unqualified, inexperienced shadow man. Have you seen a movie named "The Manchurian Candidate"

As insignificant as each of us might be, someone with whom we went to school will remember our name or face; someone will remember we were the clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something about us.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News said the same thing during the 2008 campaign. He questions why no one has acknowledged the president was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos also was a classmate of Obama at Columbia -- the class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him..

He is such a great orator; why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class remember him? Why won't he allow Columbia to release his records?

Nobody remembers Obama at Columbia University ....

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there... but none remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia , ever."

Nobody recalls him. Root adds that he was also, like Obama, Class of '83 Political Science, and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."

Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia ,provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia .

Some other interesting questions..

Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002?

Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by court order?

It is circulating that according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 alias.

The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is never reported to have lived.

No wonder all his records are sealed...

Please continue sending this out to everyone. Somewhere, someone had to know him in school...before he "reorganized" Chicago & burst upon the scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention. Maybe next time we might think about asking these questions before we VOTE!

I recently remember a State-run, Lame-Stream media person asking Obama whether or not the first dog would be traveling with his wife to Africa!!! You gotta give em credit, they are digging in and trying to get to the bottom of things.

Let’s make this a LOT shorter - What do you know about Barack Obama that Barack Obama has not been the one to reveal it? Answer: Virtually nothing.

The only personal story I read about his past was written by the woman (then young lady) who took the photos of him back in Cali. She definitely had a crush on him and it seemed he wanted her ‘to go away’ while he was campaigning. It’s all very strange.

This isn’t true. There is enough about Obama that is very bad without having to lie. His roommate in NY has talked about their times together. Obama and Michelle met at the law firm where they both “worked”. There are pictures online of their wedding. Please don’t spread lies. It just makes us look stupid. As for “girlfriends”, the only one I have read about was named Larry Sinclair.

A shadow of illegitimacy hangs over every aspect of the US government until the singular question Exactly who is this guy they call Barack Obama really? is answered in full. Nothing will move forward in a meaningful way, and trust in government will be forever soiled until that day of reckoning.

Some of this column doesn’t sound right. A couple people said that they knew Obama in at least one college, including Harvard and possibly Occidental. However, the MSM apparently has not worked very hard to track down people at these schools from the years Obama reportedly attended them.

Saying that a court inactivated a law license needs more to it than that, as one poster commented.

Thinking off the top of one’s head can be misleading so we need documented facts/citations in order to give the ideas expressed any credibility.

Has anyone looked at Marriage Licenses in Chicago for the Obamas? Law License applications with the courts, etc?

That is where records should show up.

The same, as someone did, for the property that the Obamas bought (via Rezko and another cut-out).

In 1989, Michelle was working at a downtown law firm and assigned the role of advisor to a summer associate from Harvard, Barack Obama. He reportedly didn’t have much interest in corporate law, but did have a lot of interest in Michelle.
She said “she fell in love with him for the same reason many other people respect him; his connection with people.”
Source: Journal Gazette/Times-Courier Online

After refusing to go out with Barack for a month, Michelle agreed to spend the day with him. They went to the art institute, had lunch at an outdoor cafe, walked and talked, saw the movie Do the Right Thing, and had a drink on the 99th floor of the John Hancock building.

Facts are good. The part I bolded is a speculation. The IL bar records available to the public don't show why her law license is inactive.

You still have to admit he has spent millions to sequester his past, from medical records to college term papers, and for what reason? He has something to hide and we are getting no help from the MSM in finding out why.

I find the timing of her “inactivity” unusual. It was mere days before the Illinois Bar Association was going to revoke her license that she surrendered her license to practice law. I believe the same is true of Obama.

I imagine obama has hired some writers to “make shit up” so he can have a past history. I bet Billy Ayers is working it up right now.

But, one thing that bothers me is that people are still saying no one knew him. No professor ever had him in class.

Well, even if they are lying, there are a few people from Columbia who knew him. If we say NO ONE, all the MSM has to do is trot out Phil Boerner or Professor Michael Baron. The uninformed write us off at liars or conspiracy kooks.

It is a BAD plan to exaggerate ‘very few’ into NONE. It makes us look stupid. Isn’t ‘very few’ good enough?

The problem with a made up background is that there are always verifiable facts that can be cross checked. The more elaborate the story, the more ways they can trip themselves up. Any good detective knows this. To say Barry’s known past is lean on irrefutable facts regarding the particulars of his life is an understatement.

It seems he had an article published in the Columbia student magazine in 1983. Not sure if they permitted non-student’s articles to be published.

I keep hearing Obama has spent millions to hide his records. Where would anyone find that information? I don’t believe other presidents routinely release college info or detailed medical records other than the “clean bill of health” their doctors provide. Some college records have been obtained from sources for presidents, but I am not aware of any president who has released college records on their own. I would appreciate being shown if I am wrong. From interviews with people Obama went to college with, it has been established he used drugs and made bad grades until Columbia, where by his own admission, he buckled down. Still, I don’t see how he got into Harvard without near-perfect grades all the way through. I think that is where the Saudi connection comes in. Why, though, would a Saudi want to see him succeed at Harvard????

Excellent Post.

The basketball coach at Obama’s high school in Hawaii talked about Obama’s skills in that sport (about average)

Lawrence Tribe at Harvard Law School has said Obama was an excellent student.

But what about high school buddies, fellow team members why didn’t members of the press interview them. Certainly after a person is nominated for President or Vice President members of the media everyone they can that knew the cadidate. Not so in Obama’s case.

Obama graduated in 1984 from Columbia. His name must be on the list of graduates. Was that list published in one or more of the New York papers.

Oh, for crying out loud! There are multiple sources of how they met. Just google it. They met while dumbnuts Obama was an intern at Sibley Austin. By the way, Bill Ayers’ wife, Bernadine Dohrn, worked there as well. Some law firm. Would love to see those files.

Each and every one of us in the 40+ year old range has met hundreds possibly thousands of people in life’s meanderings, a percentage of those probably would account some interaction in detail, even for people who don’t get out much. Barry seems to lack this trait. Shy of the two perhaps three childhood aquaintances, then a large gap post-highschool, then his lefty friends in chicago, Barry is virtually unknown. A walking “records sealed by court order” person.

Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by court order?

Good question, and it appears it is inactive under court order.

See: “What happened to Michelle Obama’s law license?”

http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=105998

Records at the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as “voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law.”

It further states that Michelle license is “on court ordered inactive status.”

Michelle met Barack Obama when she was employed as a corporate attorney with the law firm Sidley Austin. They married in 1992 and have two daughters, 9-year-old Malia and 6-year-old Sasha. The family has continued living in Chicago rather moving to Washington D.C. when Barack Obama was elected Senator, to accommodate Michelle’s career with the University of Chicago Medical Center.

http://askville.amazon.com/Michelle-Barack-Obama-meet-married/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=10493000

She met Barack Obama when she was a 25-year-old lawyer at a corporate law firm, having just left Harvard Law School.

The email implies that he was not a student at Columbia in 1983.

The article of his that was published in the same year would disprove such a theory.

“Congratulations to the entire class of 2009. Congratulations to you. I don’t know if anybody else will meet their future wife or husband in class like I did, but I’m sure you’ll all going to have wonderful careers.”

Video here.

Well, which is it?

Class or law firm?

It is just natural for Obama to lie - about everything.

Why doesn't the MSM ever ask a meaningful question for its public?
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Why doesn't the conservative media bring it up? Hm? That they didn't, and still don't, is heartbreakingly disappointing. I trusted those guys and gals. Not any more! I will **never** forgive them.

If true tyranny comes to our nation the so-called conservative yappers will sell their talents to the fascist oligarchy and lick the jack boot crushing our necks. Count on it.

And....What about our very highest military officers? Hm? When did supporting and upholding identity theft, lying, election fraud, and impersonating a Commander in Chief become part of the military code of honor? Where is the evidence that they legally and peacefully sought certifiable clarification from congress and the courts? Honestly, I don't know why lightning doesn't strike when these guys return the salutes of our brave, honorable, and very capable service men and women.

Obama attended Columbia College from 1981 to 1983, after transferring in his junior year from Occidental College.

The rest of the article explains it as follows:

James Grogan, deputy administrator and chief counsel for the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois, or ARDC, has been with the commission for 30 years. He told WND that on July 1, 1994, the Illinois Supreme Court entered an order allowing Michelle to be transferred to inactive status pursuant to Illinois Supreme Court rule 770.

The ARDC website explains, “Prior to November 1, 1999, former Supreme Court Rule 770 provided for a proceeding in the Court for any voluntary transfer to inactive status, whether because of some incapacitating condition or solely as a matter of the lawyer’s preference because the lawyer would not be practicing law.”

Grogan explained, “At the time, the only way to go on inactive status was to do what she did – which was to file a petition in the Illinois Supreme Court.”

He said attorneys often filed a petition for 770 when they wanted to pursue other careers, retire or begin raising a family.

“At the time, this happened all the time,” he said. “Our office would have to file what’s known as a consent.”

Grogan said his office would have immediately alerted the court in a public filing if there had been reason to believe she should face disciplinary action.

“We filed a consent in Michelle Obama’s case in which we had no objection to her transferring to inactive status,” he said. “In the event that she did go on inactive status and she engaged in any disbarrable offenses, there would be a disciplinary case of public record.”

He continued, “Just because someone goes on inactive it doesn’t deprive us of the jurisdiction to prosecute.”

Inundated by numerous 770 filings that each required a separate court ruling, the Illinois Supreme Court later simplified the inactivation process. In 2005, after Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate, he changed his status to inactive as well.

“By 2005, which is several years later than his wife, the rule had changed such that you no longer had to file a petition that was such a pain for the court,” Grogan explained. “Instead, the court had changed it to two types of status: inactive or retired. Either situation involves merely sending a letter to us basically saying, ‘I want to transfer to inactive status.’”

Active lawyers are required to pay $289 each year and take 30 hours of Continuing Legal Education, or CLE, every two years. Under inactive status, attorneys are not required to take the courses, but they must pay $105 each year. “Inactive” registrants are not authorized to practice law. Lawyers who retire do not have to pay fees or take courses.

“A lot of people who aren’t practicing say, ‘Why bother?’” Grogan said.

Barack Obama remained listed as inactive until he retired this year.

Nothing worse than half-truths.

The title “The Sundial” does not come up in Wikipedia’s list of official Columbia University publications.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbia_University

From Wiki:
Columbia University is home to a rich diversity of undergraduate, graduate, and professional publications. The Columbia Daily Spectator is the nation's second-oldest student newspaper;[142] and The Blue and White,[143] a monthly literary magazine established in 1890, has recently begun to delve into campus life and local politics in print and on its daily blog, dubbed the Bwog.
Political publications include The Current,[144] a journal of politics, culture and Jewish Affairs; the Columbia Political Review,[145] the multi-partisan political magazine of the Columbia Political Union; and AdHoc,[146] which denotes itself as the “progressive” campus magazine and deals largely with local political issues and arts events.
Arts and literary publications include the Columbia Review,[147] the nation's oldest college literary magazine; Columbia, a nationally regarded literary journal; the Columbia Journal of Literary Criticism;[148] and The Mobius Strip,[149] an online arts and literary magazine. Inside New York[150] is an annual guidebook to New York City, written, edited, and published by Columbia undergraduates. Through a distribution agreement with Columbia University Press, the book is sold at major retailers and independent bookstores.
Columbia is home to numerous undergraduate academic publications. The Journal of Politics & Society,[151] is a journal of undergraduate research in the social sciences, published and distributed nationally by the Helvidius Group; Publius is an undergraduate journal of politics established in 2008 and published biannually;[152] the Columbia East Asia Review allows undergraduates throughout the world to publish original work on China, Japan, Korea, Tibet, and Vietnam and is supported by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute;[153] and The Birch,[154] is an undergraduate journal of Eastern European and Eurasian culture that is the first national student-run journal of its kind; and the Columbia Science Review is a science magazine that prints general interest articles, faculty profiles, and student research papers.[155]
The Fed[156] a triweekly satire and investigative newspaper, and the Jester of Columbia,[157] the newly (and frequently) revived campus humor magazine both inject humor into local life. Other publications include The Columbian, the undergraduate colleges’ annually published yearbook[158] the Gadfly, a biannual journal of popular philosophy produced by undergraduates;[159] and Rhapsody in Blue, an undergraduate urban studies magazine.[160] Professional journals published by academic departments at Columbia University include Current Musicology[161] and The Journal of Philosophy.[162] During the spring semester, graduate students in the Journalism School publish The Bronx Beat, a bi-weekly newspaper covering the South Bronx. Teachers College publishes the Teachers College Record, a journal of research, analysis, and commentary in the field of education, published continuously since 1900.[163]
Founded in 1961 under the auspices of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) examines day-to-day press performance as well as the forces that affect that performance. The magazine is published six times a year, and offers a deliberative mix of reporting, analysis, criticism, and commentary. CJR.org, its Web site, delivers real-time criticism and reporting, giving CJR a vital presence in the ongoing conversation about the media. Both online and in print, Columbia Journalism Review is in conversation with a community of people who share a commitment to high journalistic standards in the U.S. and the world.[164]
