A Possible Explanation for Obama's Connecticut Social Security Number
American Thinker ^

Posted on 09/15/2012 12:28:25 PM PDT by Perdogg

As I reported on Tuesday, Barack Obama has yet to provide an explanation for how he came to have a Social Security number that begins with the Connecticut prefix "042."

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert read the piece. He has been in Hawaii doing follow-up research on his insightful new documentary, Dreams from My Real Father, and he sent me the single best explanation I have yet to see

And as we concentrate on this idiocy, Conservatism slips away as the fool Romney is our standard bearer.

This is a bigger disaster than many of you think. We don’t focus on Conservative governing, we focus on poll compositions and conspiracy theories.

Either we change or game over.

More B.S.

If Obama simply got the SSN in Hawaii as the result of a clerical error, then why did Obama unlawfully file federal tax returns in Connecticut using that SSN? After all, if he’s never been in Connecticut, then why file his tax returns there? This whole thing stinks, the coverup stories stink, and Obama is the stinker.

Obama, they contend, lived in the Hawaii zip code of 96814, while the zip code for Danbury, CT is 06814.

Looking at my keyboard, that's not a totally implausible explanation.

Correct. The average person in the street could not care less if Obama was born on the moon.

He filed tax returns in Connecticut? That’s a new one on me and I thought I was up to date on all the Obama shenanigans.

Joel Gilbert suggests a more likely explanation. In doing his research in Hawaii, Gilbert heard from several sources that pre-statehood, every institution or branch of government in Hawaii was dominated by the Japanese syndicate known as the "Yakuza, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), and a complicit bureaucracy. "After statehood in 1959 the Federal Government came in, and the syndicate went underground, but maintained the same control, and does so to this day," says Gilbert.

"Hawaii was and is a corrupt state," Gilbert continues. He was told by retired Honolulu police detectives that in the state bureaucracy, "anything could be purchased, including Social Security numbers." These were real numbers, likely available because the original card holder was dead. The sellers trafficked in SSNs that did not originate in Hawaii. That way, if the person using the phony SSN were ever caught, the crime would be traced back to the issuing state, not the Hawaii office.

Gilbert's theory is that the SSN problem is related to the question of Obama's birth certificate, which is required to get a SSN. Lacking a valid birth certificate, Obama was forced to buy an SSN so he could get his first job at the Baskin Robbins in 1977. In this theory, Obama was sold an SSN that was Connecticut-based so it couldn't be traced back to the Hawaii office.

Great premise for a movie. And it could explain what Pops was doing in all those sleazy bars. But it seems a long way to go to account for things that we really aren't sure are true to begin with.

One possible explanation for Obama to fraudulently file federal tax returns in Connecticut, is that he either wanted to evade NY taxes where he was living at the time, or that he wanted to create a new identity. The SSN was created under the Obama name, and not the Barry Soetoro name he had been using all along.

“Either we change or game over.”

This game is over. There will be another one, after the cards have been reshuffled. But this one is lost.

if it was a typo... then it’d still be on record associated with 0bama

yet his ssno cannot be verified via e-verify

in other words, the ‘typo’ explanation is bs

stolen is definitely the case... especially since we do not re-issue ssnos... especially within a year of the original person’s death

As I said, this whole SSN thing stinks.

I’ve also read that the CT SSN he officially uses was issued later than 1979-1981, for while attending Occidental College, in California, he used SSNs with the prefix 999-xx-xxxx; these are only used by foreign students receiving government financial aid. Many contend that Obama was then Soebarkhah “Barry” Soetoro, and an Indonesian citizen. He did not morph into Barak Hussein Obama until later, when he was living in NY and Chicago.

The Principle of Occam’s Razor:

The most useful statement of the principle for scientists is:

“When you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”

Or: “Keep things simple”

In the case of the many anomalies in Obama’s claimed history, without proof of the many convoluted and tortured explanations, the simplest explanation is that he is a fraud and a shyster.

The people from the past who are used to document Obama's life are all ... composites.
The data from the past which works against Obama's claims are all ... clerical errors.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

First quote from article:
"Said Carole Gilbert, presumably with a straight face, "In fact, Barack Obama's dad attended college in Connecticut and in 1977, Obama was college aged; is it beyond reason to consider that he might have checked out his father's alma mater?" Last time I checked, Harvard was in Massachusetts. The closest town to Harvard in Connecticut is about 90 minutes away, and there is no record at all that Obama Sr. lived there, let alone that Obama visited his imaginary alma mater and just happened to apply for a Social Security card while visiting. "

She appears to have confused Yale with Harvard. Yale is in New Haven, Connecticut.

Second quote from article:

"Obama, they contend, lived in the Hawaii zip code of 96814, while the zip code for Danbury, CT is 06814. "

That goes beyond mere clerical error if they reissued a dead man’s SSN #. Of course that’s been a common techique for years in ID scams.

I was born a little before W.W.II and I do remember Watergate and lots before that. Honesty matters.

Of course Nixon did nothing that JFK and LBJ had not done.. but if an event falls in the forest of news and the MSM does not report it.. it did not happen. Regardless honest still matters.

Nixon's Articles of Impeachment led off with.. "Article 1 . . . [Nixon acted] in violation of his consitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice . . . [by means of the following beginning with]: making false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States . . . ."

.. or put simply as this old hillbilly can manage

Is it asking too much for the arrogant jerk to release truthfull, verifiable information that we little people are required to release many times throughout our life times?

All we are saying♩♪♫
is give release a chance♩♪♫

I did not source this but I do recall reading that the majority of Americans simply do not believe Obama's story of his life. The campaign should emphasis the book by a fan of Obama's who unintentionally documented Obama's lies.

And there is Clayman's letter to the DNC warning them that certifying false information about Obama for Election 2012 as true and accurate could lead to their prosecutions. More stuff the Romney people should use.. they won't because his consultants and many on his staff are DNC moles. I bet.

Another explanation.. Obama was stoned when he filled out the application.

BTW, I expect that SS was using computers by the mid 1970s (IBM 7080 and 7090 even 360/165) not likely that the computer on SS's side was stoned.)

Well since there are usually more than two competing theories, Occam’s Razor is usually stated as “The simplest explanation is most often the correct one.”

Oh wtd, GAME,SET,MATCH! That is correct about 5 digit zip codes. Before that, it was postal ZONES!

Remember the Elvis song "Return to Sender?"...No such person... no such zone...

The "clerical error" happened well after Obama's birth.

And further WHEN did Obama and his mom live in Hawaii? Were they even there in 1963? (Assuming they waited a couple of years to try for a SSN). Obama lived with his typical white person grandparents in HI from what 8 through 18?

the five digit zip code system was instituted in 1963.

He got his SS# in the 1970's so the zip code theory would still apply.
