Skip to comments.Obama classmate: There is a reason Obama refuses to release his college records
Posted on 08/07/2012 8:43:05 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
An Obama classmate from Columbia University called him out this week for stirring up a bogus smear campaign against Romney over his taxes, insisting that Obama's motive is not only to distract voters from the worst economic recovery in post-WWII history, but also to avoid a far more scandalous and devastating skeleton Obama has hiding in his own closet...buried deep inside those college records he still refuses to unseal (and has paid millions to keep under lock and key).
From Wayne Allyn Root (via The Blaze):
"If anyone should have questions about Obamas record at Columbia University, its me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of 83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought Id heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then- Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
But dont take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama."
In other words, Obama is going to great lengths to prevent the release of his records from a school that no one remembers him attending (which means he either completely lied about graduating there or failed a lot of classes, which would prevent him from getting financial aid) and that he had no means of paying for at the time.

Wayne Allyn Root believes that if you could unseal Obama’s college records, you will find that:
A) He rarely ever attended class.
B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.
C) He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.
The msm has failed on vetting Obama.
No one has seen the hardcopy of his birth certificate.
College grades sealed.
SS number issued in a state he’d never been to.
Draft registration date stamp different from ALL others seen for 1980.
No senior thesis anyone has read.
Rezko’s next door neighbor in Chicago; Rezko’s wife Obama’s real estate agent; Rezko bought part of Obama’s lot for him.
Is there a free media out there. Where’s the Romney team on ANY of this stuff???
Was this Rush’s mystery caller a couple weeks ago?
I think many of us figured out a while ago that his school financing would expose more felonious fraud than the proof of his BC forgery that seems to anger not a few alleged freepers whenever discussed.
“A) He rarely ever attended class.

DING, DING, DING, we have a winner!!!!!
I guess in the same place every other politician, reporter, and assorted hack is.
Of course, Columbia would not conduct its own internal investigation to determine the facts.......just like Harvard would never officially confirm or deny that Elizabeth Warren was hired based on her Native American ancestry.
I am sure Harvard would extend the same courtesy to Romney.......
There is NOTHING irreproachable in either “O’s” education, experience or background.
Name me ONE Conservative who has enjoyed THAT kind of latitude in presenting himself to America!
Back then with the affirmative action crap going on, 0bama could do whatever he wanted solely because he was black.. AND HE CONTINUES TO DO THAT AS PRESIDENT. NO ACCOUNTABILITY, What a life!
If only America knew...
The best Obama exposure site on the net:

Just a few pages of The Obama File:
The other three may be true, but in nearly six years of college, attending three different universities, I never once saw attendance taken.
My statistics class was so poorly taught by heavily Chinese accented TA, most of my class attended other lectures and only showed up for the scheduled quizzes and tests.
So what’s new??? Where’s the Beef???
They have hardly failed. They done an OUTSTANDING job completely obscuring the facts, which has been their GOAL ALL ALONG.
Romney should just let this thing fester with the Democrats.....don’t respond to it and stay on subject. Democrats will bury themselves with this thing. As for Obama’s education, keep up the pressure for discovery. Someday, some how, someone will come forward......that is if they are smart. Otherwise they will look like fools and lose all credibility......or, end up in jail for a coverup.
If there is evidence of criminal activity such as fraudulently receiving federal benefits, this whole concealment effort becomes obstruction of justice.
Foreign born or pretending to be foreign born would cook Obozo’s goose.
Well, the rarely attended class or had bad grades seems to be a diffeernt issue than foreign exchange student.
It seems to me the scandal would be an embarrasment for Obama, that he would have lied along the lines of Elizabeth Warren.
I don’t think using “foreign exchange student” to get money for college means you really are not an American citizen. The author opines that Obama never switched back to being an American citizen. I’m not sure how that would work. He was the child of an American parent who then lived abroad, I don’t think that made him an Indonesian.
The crazy thing about Obama is we are all so cowed by political correctness, that no one wanted to question whether a guy who grew up in the Third World and not America, really even understands this country.
Obama shows all the effects of being a disaffected kid raised by a left wing family, really without a country to call his own. His early view of America includes a lot of Third World muslims telling him America is a problem.
“The other three may be true, but in nearly six years of college, attending three different universities, I never once saw attendance taken.”
That is the truth! Once the university (read: ‘graduation factory’) gets their hands on your tuition, they could care less if you attend or pass your classes. PERIOD
Libs don’t care because with obama they have the socialist president they want.
Thanks for this info- I’ve been there before, but I didn’t bookmark it.
Didn’t anybody ever complain that they couldn’t understand the instructor?
Oh yeah, The Holder Injustice Department is going to jump on that one.
Why and how would it cost “millions” to keep your college records private? I don’t see how it would cost a cent.
Can you explain?
What's new is that this is now getting a great deal of attention, and is going viral.
Yeah, take the left’s word for it, obamao is a genius, the msm always proclaims it, lol.
While it is highly unlikely we would ever get a communist indoctrination center, aka most universities, to reveal anything about this enemy of the country, somebody, somewhere should be willing to expose the full details of why he surrender his license to practice law along with that American hating wife of his.
We at least know he surrendered the license. Is there a single journalist in this country who is not a card carrying member of the communist party that is willing to investigate this? How about Glenn or Breitbart’s organization?
A person who went through the effort to get his law degree does not just surrender it because of a parking ticket. There must be some serious dirt that is being covered up and why it is not pursued only leads me to believe this entire left/right/dem/gop crap is just a show to distract us from the all too obvious theft of our country by the communists using every method described by the communist manifesto.
I don’t doubt that 0bama was a “less than distinguished” student while at Columbia.
I was a Political Science major at Indiana University at about the same time (1977-1981). I was active in my classes there, and unlike 0bama, I would consider myself a distinguished student. At least enough to get into law school on my own merits and not affirmative action. I was also a German major; there were about a dozen of us, we were in the same classes for four years and we all knew each other fairly well at the time.
Having said all of that, I believe there is only one other Political Science major who would recognize me today: Keane Moody, who also happened to be a hunting buddy and life-long friend. Only one German major, Stephanie, would remember me, and that’s because she wound up living in the same metropolitan area, her dad taught in the same department of the high school where my uncle taught, and we sort of dated once or twice.
So my point is that it’s been a long time since undergrad, and unless you made close friends that you kept in touch with, you aren’t going to be remembered 30 years later. Other than Keane and Stephanie, I don’t remember any of the other poli sci or German majors, and I doubt any of the others now remember me.
A) He rarely ever attended class.
Are there really colleges that track attendance? Other than through inference; i.e., bad grades likely equals bad attendance, how would one determine this?
I think this is good in the sense that it helps reveal that Obama is a fraud. I think it is irrelevant to his supporters that he is a fraud. Will proving he is a fraud matter? I’m not sure. Keep in mind that most Liberals and the MSM still feel like the scientifically proven liar and multiple time perjure Bill Clinton was mistreated for personal foibles.
I must've missed Rush that day....can you bring me up to speed?
I'd be happy to provide my assistance with that. (Off to cyberspace!)
The controversy about the authenticity of the birth certificate is only the tip of the iceberg. Years ago, the craft of spy placement was based on getting specious documents in place, to create a persona and an artificial history, that would withstand a cursory review, but would be found to have been either clever forgeries or carefully doctored copies of original documents that had somehow “disappeared”.
If that is what we have here, it is not a matter of simply spiriting the Dauphin out of France near the start of the French Revolution, or Anastasia out of Bolshevik Russia, and someone surfacing years later claiming to be that person. This was done at a much higher level, and with a widespread conspiracy in place, filing the real originals in an Orwellian “memory hole”, and instigating an instant rewrite of all relevant supporting documentation. The unfortunate thing about that strategy is that contradictory information has a habit of resurfacing, sometimes at inconvenient times, which makes doubling down on the original story mandatory, and the cleaning up of the loose ends imperative.
BS has been called. Any followups?
Not bad points.
But I suspect you would have remembered it if you had ever met the only black student in your subject.
What in the HELL is this clown ever going to put into his Library???
that he killed Bin Laden??? the Navy Seals did that job, I doubt if Hussein knows how to even load a gun..
maybe he will put in all the Food he provided for Americans and never turned a shovel of soil in his life...
what ever he puts...I’ll not waste money on...just can’t wait to see him move out...
From the education section of the file:
Where Was Obama?
Dr. Orly Taitz that has a shocking revelation. It seems Obama went missing for more than a year in 1981 when he was supposed to be at Columbia. That’s also the year that Obama said he went to Pakistan for the summer.
The following paragraphs have been extracted from Taitz’ First Amended Complaint, filed at the U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia:
27. Further records from the Student Clearing House show even more shocking evidence. In his memoirs and multiple speeches Obama wrote that he studied for two years at Columbia University September 1981-May 1983. He admitted that in summer of 1981 he traveled to Pakistan to visit his friends, but repeatedly claimed that from September 1981 until May of 1983 he resided in New York and studied at Columbia University. Taitz ran a check of his years of attendance at Columbia university and found out that Columbia official records show him attending Columbia university only for nine months September 1982-till May 1983 (Exhibit 3 — last line — click to enlarge), which means that the President of the United States lied to the whole nation about his whereabouts for a whole year September 1981 until September 1982. One year absence is the best case scenario, as he could get his university credit by reciprocity or through extern studies.
28. As there is no record of Obama residing anywhere else in the United States from September 1981-September 1982, or attending any other university, by way of simple deduction it becomes clear that his visit to Pakistan lasted not a month or two, as he claims, but may have lasted for over a year.
29. In 1981-1982 Pakistan was ruled by a ruthless radical Muslim leader general Zia Ul Hac, who came to power as a result of a military coup, announced himself as a Chief Martial Law Administrator and ruled the country via the system of iron fist terror. Supreme court of Pakistan, apparently afraid for their lives found such rule to be acceptable due to a “necessity” doctrine. Based on verification of Columbia university records, Taitz found that Obama spent at least a year within the regime of general Zia Ul Hac. This revelation adds urgency in processing this complaint, as it shows that we have today an individual usurping the position of the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the whole US military, while using a stolen social security number, not possessing a valid long form U.S. birth certificate and defrauding the nation and concealing a whole year of his whereabouts.
Continue reading here with additional documents . . .
Taitz is something of a loose cannon, but that is an interesting artifact that she has uncovered.
Watch for the announcement from the National Student Clearinghouse describing Taitz’ discovery as a data entry error, but in any case this isn’t going to help Obama’s Columbia story.
Obama’s “Missing Year” At Columbia
Jerome Corsi says swirling amid the black hole of information are a host of theories about Obamas whereabouts during the 1981-1982 school year, so WorldNetDaily contacted the National Student Clearinghouse and Columbia about the clearinghouse records that show Obama was at the school only during the 1982-83 school year.
Janine Greenwood, vice president and general counsel for the clearinghouse, told WND there was a “computer error” in their system that has been corrected. She said she confirmed with Columbia that Obama was at the university for two academic years, not one.
Greenwood said she “tried to untangle this” discrepancy one year ago after two “DegreeVerify certificates” from the Herndon, Va.-based clearinghouse — obtained through a fee-based request — indicated Obama attended Columbia College at Columbia University only in the 1982-1983 academic year, from Sept. 1, 1982 until May 31, 1983, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree May 17, 1983.
“All I know is [the record] was right originally, and somewhere along the line it went off the rails, and then it was right again,” she said.
Columbia’s Robert Hornsby said he was unaware of any contact between Columbia and the National Student Clearinghouse regarding the discrepancy.
In the Thursday interview, Hornsby said regarding the clearinghouses information: “I dont know what theyre basing their information on or what their system is for logging, but I can confirm, as a matter of fact, that President Obama was here in September 1981 as a transfer student from Occidental.”
Asked whether he had personally seen a transcript that would verify Obama attended classes during the 1981-82 school year, Hornsby said, “Youre looking for proof I cannot provide.”
He noted academic records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, “and we dont talk about any students academic records, presidents or otherwise.”
Hornsby said his information is based on confirmation from “people that have the authority” in the registrars office.
Obama attended Columbia School of General Studies. If a General Studies student completes enough courses, and/or has other credits from elsewhere accepted, a student can receive a degree. People confuse Columbia University, Columbia College, and Columbia General Studies. A big university system has many different schools and colleges attached.
Of course, what Columbia University will not release is exactly what Obama actually did while in their General Studies degree program.
Undergraduate education at Columbia is offered through Columbia College, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the School of General Studies. Undergraduate programs are offered by two affiliated institutions, Barnard College and Jewish Theological Seminary. Columbia University provides post-graduate education through thirteen graduate and professional schools and a school of continuing education. Three affiliated schools also offer post-graduate programs.
With all of the students who attended Harvard University and Columbia University you would think at least one of them would have a yearbook with a picture of the one in it or a photograph of him engaged in his daily activity.
Also since Obama claims to have been the editor of the Harvard Law Review I would think they would have plastered his face at least once on the paper.But then again I’m just using common sense.
My understanding is he was formally (under Indonesian law, I’d presume) adopted by Pere Soetoro. How does that affect US citizenship? I don’t know and am simply asking. I’d be surprised if there is any provision for dual citizenship between the USA and Indonesia but life is and most days are full of surprises. In the meantime keep questioning everything about this bastard’s (in the literal sense) tall tale. He’s not the kind who can handle it and sooner or later will break down in a very public manner.
Hussein’s a plant of the worst sort. Someone here yesterday I think connected all the dots to Iran.
Either way, America’s worst enemy is at the helm and more than half of American voters are complicit in epic fraud and hate.
Of course there is a way. It is called a congressional subpoena. Obama's "lock and key" could not withstand a congressional subpoena.....if congress cared, and they do not. They have skeletons in their closets too.
Back when the Clinton scandals were first getting out there I remember a woman gleefully stating ‘You're never going to be able to get him. He's too smart for you and you'll never catch him.’ etc. etc. My point being that a lot of Obama supporters could care less what he's guilty of, as long as he doesn't get caught and therefore continues to be able to do their bidding.
This has become commonplace in American society. As long as their guy is ‘sticking it to those rich privileged people’, and giving out free stuff, they don't care where he came from or if he's a total fabrication. The only time any allegations about Obama bother them is when they're afraid it will keep him from being reelected and screwing the people they don't like. It's an incredibly divided country we live in, and ethics have become expendable.
One of the dozen German students was black. I remember his face. I don’t remember his name. Very nice guy, but had trouble with pronunciation.
I remember the “Che Guevera wanna be” Poli-Sci TA, who always showed up to “indoctrinate” wearing the fatigue pants. Yeah, like she was gonna go man the barricades right after a latte. Moody & I made running jokes about her while drinking beers. I’m sure she’s a died in the wool 0bama kool-aid guzzler who hasn’t aged well. But damned if I can remember her name.
Film clips show Oboma as a radical black organizer on campus. If he was there for more than activism - for what ever reason - people would remember. Apparently, he made a lot of noise if nothing else.
That's why I've always wondered why he had no known friends or girl friends from his college years talking about how wonderful he was (like the democrats claim). The only people, other than this person, who have come forward are two of Obomas homosexual sex partners.
