Barack Obama Was A Foreign Student American Media Threatened Into Silence

Joe Arpaio speaking 2 SC Barack Obama Was A Foreign Student   American Media Threatened into Silence

On March 7th, 2012, Pravda called out the U.S. press for its deliberate neglect of the largest scandal in modern American history. Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio released credible forensic evidence that Barack Obama, presumed President of the United States, presented to the world a forged Birth Certificate on April 27th, 2011.

Since then, the scandal has only expanded. Former United States Postal Service worker Allen Hulton has recently come forward with compelling testimony given under Oath, which leads to only one conclusion: Barack Obama attended College in the United States as a Foreign Student.

In the summer of 2008 the presidential primary season was winding down, and America could not help but note the fervor a significant number of media personalities expressed while supporting the candidacy Barack Obama. Indeed, it was collectively decided within the liberal media, that Obama’s associations with racist pastors and violent domestic terrorists was to be suppressed.

The exposure of the “Journolist” email scandal in 2010 made this glaringly clear: Stories like Obama’s ties to Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr. of the Trinity United Church, and more relevant, to Bill Ayers and his radical past in the Weather Underground Organization were to remain largely un-reported and uninvestigated. Any realistic investigation into Barack Obama’s background was to be minimized, inquiries eventually mocked, and investigators labeled racists.
These tactics have isolated honest media who could and should have reported on these and other important stories yet have inexplicably remained silent. Now we know why. More on this in a moment.

The Postman
Retired United States Postal Worker Allen Hulton recently signed a sworn affidavit for the Maricopa County, Arizona Cold Case Posse convened by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, attesting under oath, to conversations with Mary Ayers, the mother of Bill Ayers. He made his testimony public in a three hour long taped interviewed on March 19th, 2012. Mr. Hutton, by signing an affidavit has subjected himself to laws regarding perjury, not something to be taken lightly as telling the truth is now for him a requirement of law.

His testimony states Mary and Tom Ayers (Parents of Bill ”I don’t regret setting bombs” Ayers) were sponsoring Barack Obama as a foreign student, and financially supporting his education.

This is a huge revelation on not one, but two separate fronts.

Bill Ayers of dubious “Weatherman” fame, was not just “a guy who lives in my neighborhood”, as then candidate Obama brushed aside. The video linked here comes from a televised DNC Debate in the summer of 2008. As Hillary Clinton revealed then, Obama served in a paid position on the Woods Foundation with Bill Ayers and the two were involved in several projects dispersing millions of dollars over several years.

Realistically, the Ayers family could be said to have adopted Barack Obama, if not as a son then certainly as a kindred Marxist spirit, and treated him to one of the finest educations possible.

There is little doubt Mr. Obama has been less than honest with regard to the Ayers family and their significance in his life.
As disingenuous as this is, it is by no means the most important revelation.

If correct, and Obama was introduced to Hulton as a Foreign Student, this means Barack Hussein Obama would have been using a Foreign Passport to get and prove his foreign student status for entrance into Occidental College, Columbia, and later Harvard Universities. Because Hulton has signed an Affidavit, this cannot be disregarded as mere hearsay; it is instead evidentiary in nature.

The significance of this development may not be immediately apparent until one recognizes American law regarding citizenship status. Citizenship laws as expressed in Title 8 of the United States Code states the use of a Foreign Passport constitutes adult recognition of relinquishment of American Citizenship:
8 USC 1481

(a) A person who is a national of the United States whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by voluntarily performing any of the following acts with the intention of relinquishing United States nationality—
(1) obtaining naturalization in a foreign state upon his own application or upon an application filed by a duly authorized agent, after having attained the age of eighteen years; 8 USC 1481

Using a foreign passport in order to obtain status as a foreign student is precisely that, proof of naturalization in a foreign state.

The child Barack Obama became an Indonesian Citizen when he was adopted by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro and the family’s subsequent relocation to Indonesia.

Young Barack by law needed Indonesian Citizenship in order to attend school, and his adoption provided this. Indeed, in young Barack’s situation adoption was necessary to gain it.

In his defense, Obama supporters have claimed for years if the president had lost his American Citizenship as a child, he did not in fact lose it because the actions of a parent cannot permanently remove a child’s American natural born citizenship status. This fallacious argument once had some validity within the confusing morass that is American Citizenship law, the nature of which is a challenge for immigration attorneys even today.

However, Hulton’s story and sworn affidavit would confirm that Barack Obama renounced what American citizenship status he had as an adult over the age of 18, by attending college as a foreign student using a foreign passport.

This would explain the president’s refusal to release his college records. These records will easily prove or disprove his status as a Foreign Student. This is the importance of U.S. Postal worker Allen Hulton’s testimony. Unless Obama formally renounced that foreign citizenship, there is the distinct possibility he is not an American Citizen, let alone a Natural Born Citizen.

In reality, due to his father’s British heritage, Mr. Obama was never a Natural Born Citizen to begin with, and admitted precisely this on his “Fight the Smears” website, stating that he was born under the British Nationality Act of 1948. This website “http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/fightthesmearshome/” has since been removed from the live internet to re-direct to Attackwatch.com “http://www.attackwatch.com/”. Clearly Mr. Obama has relied upon confusing the American people as much as possible in order to make the truth as difficult as possible to ascertain.

Selective Service Fraud

Equally unreported by the U.S. media is that of the Selective Service Card which registered Barack Obama for the Draft in 1980. Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse released information on March 1st 2012 that this document is also “Highly Suspicious” of being a forgery, along with Mr. Obama’s “Long Form Birth Certificate” which was released by the president in the White House press room on April 27th, 2011.

One of the few media outlets reporting fully on the Cold Case Posse is the Tea Party Tribune of Arizona. On March 21st, the Tribune reported that Sheriff Arpaio has asked the Selective Service headquarters in Virginia for the original card itself in an effort to determine its authenticity within the Selective Service System. According to the Tribune, Sheriff Arpaio expressed his confidence that the agency would investigate the matter. This remains to be seen.
Has the wider American media addressed any of this in context? It may be the largest scandal in American history, certainly the most significant constitutional crisis the nation has faced since the end of the Civil War…

No.

They don’t dare.

Censorship: It is not a rumor.

Amendment I
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

The First Amendment will not prevent a few thugs funded by a private citizen or corporation from paying strategic individuals personal visits though, will it? Now we know why the remaining honest media has remained suspiciously silent.

Rumors of censorship of the American press have circulated at various times over the last several years. It seemed impossible that credible and realistic questions could exist concerning Barack Obama’s qualifications for President, yet be somehow missed by the main stream media. Indeed, the media in general is very aware of these questions, however they cannot ask them, let alone report on them. Just one example is Media Matters, funded by the George Soros Foundation, which has repeatedly and openly threated Talk Radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and his advertisers. Many have given in to the threats merely to stay in business.
In late May 2011 Dr. Jerome Corsi PhD. published “Where’s the Birth Certificate?: The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President”. At about the same time, a concerted behind the scenes effort was made to silence the press with regard to the ever increasing questions about Barack Obama’s eligibility.

A telephone interview March 22nd with Cold Case Posse Lead investigator Mike Zullo revealed the Posse had received “highly credible” information from three separate, unrelated, credible sources detailing information regarding a nationally syndicated Conservative Talk Radio show. This major very well-known host had a fill-in the day the script called for a discussion of Barack Obama’s persistent and unanswered questions regarding his citizenship status.

The executive producers of the national show, 3 hours before air time, pulled the script literally leaving the temporary host with no script whatsoever.
For a nationally syndicated show, this is absolutely unheard of, particularly with a fill-in doing the show. Programing is scheduled days in advance as hours of work and preparation often go into them; it is after all a business and one which must inform accurately. To have a script tossed just hours before airing is simply not done without explanation or substitution.

Lead Investigator Zullo revealed in this conversation that several individuals have come forth to provide testimony; the identity of these witnesses is being withheld for their protection. They identify producers, reporters, T.V. and radio personalities who have been told specifically by intimidating individuals who state clearly, they are not going to report on this story. These witnesses have been told: “If you breathe a word about it on air, we will make certain you never work in this business again,” said Investigator Zullo. Apparently those making the threats have the power to carry through on them.

Some of these witnesses have been told this along with a sinister inquiry into how a family member is doing over at XYZ (details have been changed to protect witness identity), or some other means of letting that person know the powers that be know exactly where their family members are…

There are a few however with the courage to speak out and report on this story. Talk radio show host Rodger Hedgecock recently had Sheriff Joe Arpaio on his show. “This is probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States…” said Arpaio, “Why?” he continued, “Because it has to do with the White House? The President?”.

How can the American media possibly pass on a story so huge, and so important – fraud committed by a sitting president? – Simple, it has quite simply been threatened into silence, and law enforcement is now well aware of it.

Those who are threatening the media are apparently dead serious: to the extent that no member of the media who has been threatened is willing to admit publically to it. However, there are several who have given their witness testimony, but have done so under the very strictest of confidentiality agreements. Collectively they are afraid of losing their jobs, or of their employees being further threatened.

This is no game, this is no rumor. Sheriff Arpaio and the Cold Case Posse have the information directly from witnesses who have specific knowledge of the threats, and there are a significant number of informants. Whoever is making these threats has the power to make those threats happen. It is being taken so seriously that no major media outlet has dared to break the silence.

Lead investigator Zullo, mirroring the comments of Sheriff Arpaio commented, “This is probably one of the most concerning aspects of this investigation.” When asked if this was thuggery, the reply came without hesitation, “That’s exactly what it is.”

Media moguls at the levels of a Rupert Murdoch are justifiably nervous. The implicit threat – beyond the direct threats made to their employees – involve investigations of media outlets along with their websites and their parent companies by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

“During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs.” Lead Investigator Zullo told Bob Unruh of World Net Daily on March 7th. These are the auspices of the federal government with the resources of a powerful nation backing them. The justifications for using such power are almost unlimited as RedState pointed out in August of 2011.

These federal agencies can yank broadcasting licenses, or take a variety of other actions which have the effect of making it impossible to do business let alone broadcast. It’s a brutal quid pro quo: don’t breathe a word on Barack Obama’s citizenship issues or constitutional qualifications for the office he has usurped, and we will let you stay in business.

To be brutally clear, the power and backing of the United States Federal Government is being used to silence the press about Barack Obama. Either outright or through coercion, the media is complicit in covering up the crimes of the fraud Barack Obama and his unconstitutional government. These patterns are clear and unmistakable.

Part two of this column will report on 9 State Attorneys General who have taken the unprecedented step of listing the continuing crimes of the Obama Administration with the clear intent to prosecute, which has also received little media attention.

F.R. had this covered years ago, after the first attempt at a forged birth certificate had failed to prove he was born in the USA.

So, then Zer0bama gets a newer birth certificate made up that’s in PDF format, not realizing that you can deconstruct a PDF document. It has been de-constructed scores of times, proving it’s a fake, and proving ZerObama is an idiot.

Read it again yourself.

"Using a foreign passport in order to obtain status as a foreign student is precisely that, proof of naturalization in a foreign state."

He voluntarily relinquished his US citizenship to get a scholarship as a foreign student.

You can't have it both ways here. If he accepted the scholarship, he relinquished his citizenship.

End of story.

That is a very impressive article by a college senior. She’s done a good job of pulling together disparate information.

I suspect Mr. Allen Hulton may be in for a nasty experience in the near future. Alger Hiss and his commie cronies conducted an extensive campaign against Whittaker Chambers for his witness against communist Hiss. They did everything they could possibly do to destroy him in the court of public opinion and by direct threats.

Assuming this is true - what difference does this make?

I mean really. He is 3/4 thru his 1st term. The dumbasses that voted for him before are likely to vote for him again.

Unfortunately for the country, there is a real possibility that he will be POTUS again.

"... have given their witness testimony, but have done so under the very strictest of confidentiality agreements."

With the thug Holder sitting atop the unJustice department, too many leftist judges sitting on benches, and a private paramilitary forces at the disposal of the White House, there is nothing that can be kept 'strictly confidential'. The criminal enterprise now runs the country and they can access anything previously assumed to be 'in strictist confidence'. This will not end well, and the final body count will number int he millions before these globalist fnish their taking down of America. Billy the bomber is living to see his dreams fulfilled, sadly.

Having Obama and Holder sueing Sheriff Joe over anything (immigration) they can find, just shows a little how they have gone around and threatened and rewarded the press, judges, States and others into silence.

It is really striking and eye opening. I didn’t think this behavior could happen in our nation.

Sheriff Joe is a brave man and a hero. Now, will others with the means stand up and ask the right questions? Vet Obama, or it will be worst for you all in Term II

Do what is right!

And no politician has brought it up either - under the threat and also under the threat to give us Romney/lightweight. It’s not rocket science to see why so many who call themselves conservative support him. And how these ‘constitutional lawyers’ remained quiet on him NOT being a Natural Born Citizen when it is KNOWN his father was not a citizen. There isn’t any BC needed to show he isn’t a natural born citizen.

That's the question I have always had in all of this. Even if every single one of these points is eventually proved true beyond doubt, would anyone in a position to do anything really take any action? I kind of doubt it. My guess is that most will just shrug their shoulders as if to say, well, that's the way that one went, the election is over, and kind of walk away mumbling. Sure, a few brave, lonely souls (i.e., Arpaio, some on FR, and others) will continue to cry in the wilderness, file lawsuits that the courts will toss out (the courts don't exist to dispense justice in this country anymore), and preach to the choir. But I have a feeling the majority of the sheeple, as they always do, will let their eyes glaze over, and go back to a beer by the TV. We talk a lot on FR about torches and pitchforks and marching on the Capitol, but, seriously, how many out there really think this will happen? Unless it really hits home personally, most people are inclined to continue to live their quiet lives, slave away at their jobs, raise their kids, and try to keep a low profile. They're not cowards, just incapable of seeing any real, practical way out of the dilemma.

I have a close relative that works as a reporter for one of the largest financial newspapers and news services in the world.

This relative states that most reporters are highly compartmentalized, they have ethics rules that do not allow them to influence one another on what they think should be reported. And their assignments have to be authorized by an editor.

If a news service or newspaper were to have 1000 reporters and editors, it would only take silencing 1 or 2 of them in order to silence all the remaining.

If an editor says drop the story, the story is dropped.

If the editor’s boss says to drop a story, the story is dropped.

If the corporate news executive says to the editor’s boss to drop the story, the story is dropped.

If the corporate news executive is threatened with suspension of license to broadcast or print certain news, that news is not reported.

Indeed all along these chains of authorities, people are not willing to risk their jobs to expose the truth. On the other hand, they don’t have the information to weigh where the truth might lead or to know with confidence what is accurate.

I think if Sheriff Arpaio makes headway with his investigation, this could gather momentum in much the same way that Watergate gathered momentum. At some point the press will no longer be able to ignore what is going on and the momentum will begin to build to a crescendo.

“Any realistic investigation into Barack Obama’s background was to be minimized, inquiries eventually mocked, and investigators labeled racists.”

You don’t want to be BLACK-LISTED, fired, branded a racist, and looking for a new job in the OBAMA ECONOMY, do you, Mr. Media Guy?

I mean, think of how unpopular you would become at the gay bar if you reported that!!

Oh... And, how are your tax records, by the way?

I certainly hope this monstrous mess we find ourselves in begins to crack and crumble. Whoever is behind this, they aren’t omnipotent, and it is against my religious beliefs to believe in an evil “counterpart” to G-d. They are only human, and the only One whose plans are being carried out, however indirectly and providentially, is G-d Himself.

Freeze the target, polarize it, minimize it.

... this could gather momentum in much the same way that Watergate gathered momentum. At some point the press will no longer be able to ignore what is going on and the momentum will begin to build to a crescendo.

You obviously were not of age during the Watergate era. There was absolutely no reluctance what so ever on the part of the liberal media to go after Nixon. They relished every moment ...

Assuming the Hulton affidavit is true, it’s possible it could be used to keep him off the ballot in some states by challenging his eligibility status.

Keeping him off the ballot in just one state should cause a media firestorm (or ought to, but who knows with the lamestream media these days).

” - - - When half your electorate is illiterate, - - - “

Not so!

51 % of the electorate pay NO Federal Income Taxes, and most of them are educated enough to vote for Obama so that they can continue to pay no FIT.
