College transcripts replace birth certificate for Obama detractors
Los Angeles Times ^ | 5/28/2012 | Robin Abcarian

Posted on 05/28/2012 4:17:44 PM PDT by Menehune56

Now that the issue of the president’s birth certificate has been laid to rest (mostly), some conservatives are turning their attention to a new obsession: Barack Obama's college transcripts. Last week, a website that already had offered a $10,000 reward for Obama's transcripts from Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School, increased the bounty to $20,000.

I noticed this on Drudge and it didn't look like it had been posted yet. The most interesting thing about this article is that the LA Times authorette thinks she can ridicule the so-called birthers as if the Born-in-Kenya bio at Obama's literary agent had never been discovered NO THANKS TO THEM. At least a lot of the comments at the original article are calling the LA Times out.

I always thought the most important documents were the College Documents.

I don't care what his grades were at all it is the application information I would love to see.

Yes, it is crumbling. The little lying bastard is found out for sure BUT the DBM is working overtime to Alinsky all commenters. Freeze, Isolate, Humilate the messenger, and then as to the original message: well even if it were true, it does not matter. No one would care. But they/we do care that O is A LIAR!

Isn’t it the LA Times which sits on the infamous tape of Obama toasting Rashid Khalidi? Hiding it from the public?

Now that the issue of the president’s birth certificate has been laid to rest...

So a verified US birth certificate has surfaced?

It ain’t gonna work.
This guy is not a real person. He is a “composite”. He was created like a Frankenstein monster person.
There is no trail to his past as it is all made up and glued together to create a president.

I caught that myself...
I am still a birther, but Obumbo could clear it up in a New York Minute by examination of birth certificate by document experts, and/or having birth records released by Kapiolani.

The more the Obots obfuscate, the more I become convinced
that there is one big hole in the story of his immaculation.

Interesting. The Kenyan usurper has only produced a forgery for his natal documentation, and has never produced any documentation for any of his academic endeavours, yet the MSM insists on concocting these silly Alinsky-lite activities, mocking those that evince any concern about the Kenyan clown usurping the Oval Office.

While it's certainly conceivable that reporterettes like "Robin Abcarian" are indeed that dense, it seems unlikely that all of the MSM are that incognizant of the issues.

I want to see them all—the truth will come out in the end—no way they can close this door forever—Now its just to hold things for another few months. I believe Obama will cancel the elections (due to a crisis he will manufacture) and rule by decree until he is driven from power! many will stick with him to the bitter end. Lets hope I am wrong.

The media tripped over themselves hunting for, and reporting on W’s college records. Military records too.

So just how did Barry get into prestigious schools after he “spent the last two years of high school in a daze” from drugs and alcohol? Seems a fair question for journalists.

the question that the MSM refuses to ask is, “why is it so impossible to get any kind of paperwork at all from these people?”

birth certificates, college transcripts, you name it. all we have is both of the man’s autobiographies, and now it turns out that they are essentially works of fiction.

Some employers ask prospective employees to provide a copy of their college transcripts as part of the hiring process.

We the people are the employer of the POTUS yet the media act as though releasing college records is an unreasonable thing to ask (unless he’s a Republican, of course).

Crazy times.

It needs to be 100,000 to mitigate the risk.

It’s not only the birthers [born in kenya], but the schoolers [college records], the drafters [forged selective service registration], and also the tapers [la times khalidi tape] that are demanding the kenyan commie usurper’s records.

Here’s an exercise in logic: The few small successes that Obama has had, like the Bin Ladin killing, have been trumpeted from the rooftops ad nauseum. If Obama’s academic records were outstanding, why hasn’t he put them out for all to see? Modesty? Yeah, that’ll fly.

His grades and his supposed being editor of Harvard Law Review have been major justification for his superior intelligence. In reading a couple weeks ago about one of his female lawyers in the admin., it was mentioned that she was a member of BLACK Law Review. The wheels started turning and I remembered his involvement in protests for that black law prof who loved Khalid Mohammed and I do believe he was on Black Law Review, which is NOT Harvard Law Review, on which only the best are admitted to.

Anyone know this? Or can get this info.

He has also been touted as brilliant because he has been a Constitutional prof. In fact, he was adjunct lecturer at Chicago, probably gratis of his friend Bill Ayers, the domestic terrorist--neither giving braggin' rights..

BTW, Obama was also magna cum laude at Harvard Law or so it is said.

Harvard will be very embarrassed if he was simply a mediocre student (which he surely was).

No. The HDOH put out a “verification” that had a secretary initial the certifying signature of Alvin Onaka - IOW not legally certified. And the press (as well as the AZ SOS who was desperate to not be called a “birther”) swallowed it hook, line, and sinker.

If it had been legally certified the HDOH
verification” would actually only verify that

1. there is a BC for Barack Hussein Obama II which “indicates” (not verifies) that Obama was born in Honolulu, HI. (the legal validity of that birth certificate is not stated)

2. Some specific items from Obama’s online long-form image are in the original record at the HDOH.

3. The information that’s actually on Obama’s online image matches the information on their record (but AZ SOS Bennett had asked them to verify that the online image is a “true and accurate representation of the original record on file”, and the HDOH refused to verify that).

The shenanigans the HDOH pulled to try to get out of verifying the true facts of Obama’s birthdate, mother’s name, and father’s name (3 of the 4 items critical to Presidential eligibility) are very, very revealing. Their response is tailor-made to cover up a late, amended birth certificate.

Mike Zullo of Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse has said that what Hawaii did in this verification has actually opened up some new and interesting avenues for investigation. I would agree...

Natural Born Citizeners
Transcriptors
Passporters
Selective Servicers

Skimming some sites I see what the libs are turning to: asking what worth GPA's and transcripts many years old are worth, while still calling W "too stupid to be President". I'm sure this is to prepare the way for when Zero's grades finally, if ever, get released and show only average grades.

Also, there is a question of whether he was in the Harvard Law Review or the Black Law Review, the latter being of much less importance, but also very damaging to Zero if his claim to the Harvard Law Review turns out to be false.

In 1999, the New Yorker published an apparently purloined copy of George W. Bush's Yale transcript before he became the Republican nominee for president.

AMAZING isn't it? Though this article goes to great length (as it shills for its Dear Leader) in explaining how transcripts are sacrosanct unless the graduate authorizes its release (all the while NEVER even broaching the possibility that O'Bummer do so) even while repeating his "claim" to have had a GPA of 3.7?...yet no one has been able to get anyone from Occidental, Columbia or Harvard to "purloin" O'Bummer's?

I can imagine that the reason being they have ALL been removed from the Registrars Office and are no longer (along with his SAT's, SLAT's, applications, etc.) on those campuses, or if they are, they are securely ensconced in the President's/Dean's safe with "orders" that NO ONE is to have access, no matter who or what.

A "gifted" and highly "intelligent" student?

Right!

As one of the MOST stumbling, bumbling, ignorant slugs ever to occupy the Oval Office in my 68 years, no one will EVER get me to believe that fair tale....and mine, were a genuine 3.6.

“So a verified US birth certificate has surfaced?”

No verifiable certificate has been produced, that was
not the claim. The claim was the issue has been laid to
rest. A little semantical twist....claim the issue has been
put to rest and people will make the assumption that the certificate was produced. And most people are stupid enough to do just that.

with the present arguement over Romney’s business experience being an asset to the presidency, I would like someone, even an expert in the field, to write a resume’ dated 2008 for Obama showing his qualifications to be president. 2 years at Occidental (no records) 2 years at Culumbia (no records) Harvard law school....no legal writings whatsoever, a few years in the Inninois senate voting present, and a partial term junior U.S. senator from politically corrupt Illinois.....I wouldn’t hire him as a low level manager in my small company.

I can’t make an informed decision about whether the president’s birth certificate is legit or not. However, I find it very strange that the president sealed such things as his college and medical records and was reluctant to release his birth certificate. While there is no obligation to release such things, the fact that he’d seal them or delay their release is unusual. It makes a reasonable person think something is being hidden, especially when other candidates have been far more open. Plus, this isn’t about hiring a store clerk or fry cook. It’s about hiring a president, and what that president thought, wrote, and studied is relevant to the job. It’s almost like he showed up out of nowhere, a man with no past, and we’re just supposed to take him at his word.

Many years ago, I had to provide my college transcripts to apply for a job that paid $9.00/hr. I've routinely had to provide transcripts over the years for one reason or another.

Politicians should be able to pass the same security clearance procedures that we do in the military.

If a Congressman can't get a SECRET security clearance, then why should that person be able to attend Classified briefings as a member of Congress?

It makes NO sense.

I don’t care about seeing his college transcripts; they probably confirm that Obama scored lower than W on the SAT and lied on his application as to place of birth. If he’s proud of them he’ll show them.

In 2008, Chiyome Fukino claimed in a news release that the HI DOH had a birth certificate “on record,” not on file. Her 2009 statement said that vital records were “on file.” Since this new “verification” uses the term “on file,” it would appear that it’s not actually referring to a certified birth document. Have you ever determined the legal difference between these two terms: on record and on file??

I would have thought that Alvin Onaka’s signature was self-certifying on such a document. What should be there to certify his certifying signature?

I completely agree.

Good students are proud of their grades because they worked hard for them...and would love the attention from having the public pore over their transcripts.

Obama is a fake. The only question I have is why would Harvard play along? I am guessing money, but how much would it take to buy their academic integrity.
