0Bama was a foreign Exchange Student?
Sean Hannity Show on Fox | XIII / VII / MMXII | pansgold

Posted on 08/07/2012 6:46:31 PM PDT by pansgold

Now there’s one for the Birthers! The Sean Hannity show just interviewed a former classmate of Barack Hussein 0bama who did not ever recall him in any way and he asked this question.

One way a student with bad grades could gain entry into 3 ivy league schools, is by claiming to be a foreign exchange student which all college campuses wanted in order to have “increase student diversity”?

I’d believe that. Hey Harvard! I’m a native born Kenyan! Can I get in?

Perhaps B. Hussein 0bama should release all HIS SEALED RECORDS and student transcripts and then Romney would release more tax returns.

WHAT’S 0BAMA HE GOT TO HIDE? It’s surely not a “C” or “D” grade.

There should no longer be any doubt that this poseur pResident is an authentic fraud. Sadly the people who could have taken him to task over it, The Republican Party/Senate were so damn scared of the NY Times and Washington Post that they wet their collective undies when they thought about it. The Republic will pay the price for their cowardice for generations to come and the citizens will pay in dollars and destroyed freedom. However, there still is time to water the Tree of Liberty.

Let’s, for once, tell it like it is.

This little coke-snortin’ faggot is NOT a U.S. citizen. He was raised a Muslim. He’s a Communist by upbringing....forget Socialism. He loathes America, Great Britain, Israel....all of our true allies. He loathes Christianity. He loathes whites. He loathes capitalism. He loathes the Constitution. He loathes our military. He hates everything about this great country.

This little f**ker was propped up, positioned, groomed, and set into place like a chess piece by someone.

Now.....it’s up to US to find out who and why (even if the “why” is fairly obvious by now).

This is breaking new ground. Today Hannity, Rush, and Beck had this report. And, Trump separately brought up the college records again this week on Fox. Wayne Allyn Root's position hasn't changed since he first made it back in 2008 or 09. His latest account, however, is gaining traction. I wonder what took these three so called conservative talk show hosts so long to address the phony Obummer. As we know, this aspect of his college life is only one falsehood. His entire past is nothing but made up fiction.

This is not a birthed issue. In fact most of the story is already known. When he was adopted by Sotero, he was eligible for Indonesian citizenship and he got a passport.

The issue is that with that passport he was able to travel safely to areas not real friendly to Americans. When he went to college it would have been cheaper for him to go as a foreign student.

If he did that it was clearly fraud.

What sickens me about my fellow Americans is that you could present them with undeniable evidence that he’s a fraud and not Constitutionally eligible for the presidency,

and MAYBE 2% of liberals would even care.

Just like when Clinton was impeached, someone stated that you could have video of him raping a woman and then shooting her in the head and you wouldn’t get 67 votes for removal.

Please don't start another round of false information. The State Department is very clear that a child does not lose US citizenship through actions of parents. A minor can't renounce US citizenship without convincing a consular officer that he fully understands all consequences of that action - not likely from someone under 12 years old.

Romney is stuck at dead center. This might move the poll needle: I think that Romney should SEAL his Federal and State Tax Records when he announces who his Veep will be.

That would give The Media a double surprise with maximum Media audience.

________________________________________________

Yes, but once he reaches the age of majority he can renounce any claim he has to citizenship by personally claiming he is a foreign national. We already know he has claimed he was Kenyan born. I bet his foreign travel docs and his college applications also show that he claimed to be foreign born.

Well that's the biggest problem of all isn't it.  Not that the President is corrupt, but that the American POPULATION is corrupt.  Surely these corrupt frauds could not get themsleves elected if the population itself were not courrpt, no?

You've heard it a thousand times.  God is morality.  The American people are abandoning God in droves.  There's your corruption problem.  And there's the downfall of the nation.

Once it's legally found that he's the presidential usurper for which there already is copious evidence, we may immediately look to Pelosi's required election certifications to the 50 states that he was eligible. She obviously was committing fraud if not treason. Let her bear the responsibility and/or give up whoever demanded she put her signature to those. Did she do that as part of a quid pro quo? If the answer is the Democrat Party "misled" her, the entire party has earned bannishment. If she squeals, perhaps the courts will be taking it up to the next level with Soros, the Illuminati, CFR or whoever else may be behind this treason.

I got this in an email

Biden may be Interim President

IN POLITICS THE CUNNING OF THE FOX IS AS MURDEROUS AS THE VIOLENCE OF THE WOLF———RON

Biden may be Interim President by the end of 2012
VERY QUIETLY OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT
Associated Press - WASHINGTON D.C.
In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College ... Released today, the transcript school indicates thatObama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student fromIndonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California.
The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded afellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship Program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.
This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya, and there is no record of him ever applying for U.S. citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a fire storm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama’s legitimacy andqualification to serve as President. An article titled, “Obama’s Eligibility Questioned,” leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama’s first official visit to the U.K.
In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama’s legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey. This lawsuit claims Obama’s “dual” citizenship disqualified him from serving as President. Donofrio’s case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama’s citizenship or qualification to serve as President.
Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing, but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.
LET OTHER FOLKS KNOW THIS NEWS, THE MEDIA WON’T!
Subject: Issue of Passport?
While I have little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:
What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi ?
So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?
And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi, what passportwas he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?
The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a rather short and simple one.
Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A : Yes, by his own admission.
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S. ... Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, or
3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: NO! It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department’s
“No Travel List” in 1981.
Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a Britishpassport or an Indonesian passport.
If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were traveling with an Indonesianpassport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held,British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know HOW he managed to become a “natural born” American citizen between 1981 and 2008.
Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.
If you Don’t care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this, and then lower your American Flag to half-staff, because theU.S. Constitution is already on life-support, and won’t survive much longer.
If you do care, then Forward this to as many patriotic Americans as you can, because our country is being looted and ransacked.

No, I’m saying that no child loses American citizenship based on actions of his parents, such as making him a dual citizen.

I agree that Barry the Boob did not lose his American citizenship by virtue of the actions taken by his parents when he was a minor.

By the same token, neither did he lose his British citizenship because of the actions of his parents when they moved to Indonesia.

As you are surely aware, Barry the Boob was a dual citizen at birth, not a natural born one. He inherited American citizenship from his mother, and British (later Kenyan) citizenship from his father, pursuant to the provisions of the British Nationality Act of 1948. He was always a dual citizen, and never a natural born citizen within the context of Article II, Section 1, U.S. Constitution.

The funny thing about this assclown Obama, though, is that by the time he was three years old, he had already been a citizen of three different nations. Further, if he was in fact adopted by Lolo Soetoro in Indonesia, it is possible that he may have perfected Indonesian citizenship merely by operation of Indonesian law. If that happened (and I don't know if it did), by the time he was 10 years old, Barry the Boob may have been able to claim citizenship in at least three and possibly four different nations.

Does that sound like any natural born American citizen you've ever heard of?

No, I didn't think so, either. :-)

He can be a dual national. A parent cannot renounce citizenship for a minor.

A U.S. citizen may acquire foreign citizenship by marriage, or a person naturalized as a U.S. citizen may not lose the citizenship of the country of birth.U.S. law does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one citizenship or another. Also, a person who is automatically granted another citizenship does not risk losing U.S. citizenship. However, a person who acquires a foreign citizenship by applying for it may lose U.S. citizenship. In order to lose U.S. citizenship, the law requires that the person must apply for the foreign citizenship voluntarily, by free choice, and with the intention to give up U.S. citizenship.

Parents cannot renounce U.S. citizenship on behalf of their minor children. Before an oath of renunciation will be administered under Section 349(a)(5) of the INA, a person under the age of eighteen must convince a U.S. diplomatic or consular officer that he/she fully understands the nature and consequences of the oath of renunciation, is not subject to duress or undue influence, and is voluntarily seeking to renounce his/her U.S. citizenship.

Not true. I traveled to Pakistan several times during that period on an American diplomatic passport. There were travel advisories in effect but no ban on travel to Pakistan like there were in the case of North Korea and Cuba. Our Embassy in Islamabad had been attacked in 1980 and there had been some assassinations of American contractors hence the travel advisories. There were plenty of private sector Americans in Pakistan including teachers, businessmen, etc.
