” Not a SOUL has come forward to acknowledge Obama’s time at Columbia.”
I don’t think you can have a more specific eye-witness account than post 18 above.
From what I’ve read, students could go to the “other” Columbia for less academically superior students, and work could be done elsehwere, even in foreign countries, and count towards credits or whatever. Maybe someone with a better memory or links will chime in.
I read the article and he says nothing about going to classes with 0bama. Bascially he was one of the room mates along with the Pakistani drug dealer whose photo is cropped off in the article; the one sitting snuggled together with 0bama, holding hands. Too bad that is cropped off.
Boerner references Obama as if he were the the quite little schoolboy studiously tending to his books, erstwhile Obama's very own "biographies" reference the following:
"I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze. Maybe a little blow when you could afford it." - Barack Hussein Obama
"We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints." - Barack Hussein Obama
I presume that’d be like Harvard’s Extension School—generally open enrollment night school and summer school classes. They give regular Harvard credit and have their own, kind of BS-y, degrees. Some lesser colleges have similar programs as well.
I’m sorry, but Mannings is seriously unhinged. Al Qaeda didn’t exist in the early 1980’s and its forebearer—”Arab Afghans” in the Saudi financed Islamist resistance to the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan was de facto allied with the United States at the time.
Obama’s hiding behand FERPA and refusing to release his Columbia transcript either because it proves he got admission and financial aid on the basis of claiming Indonesian or Kenyan nationality or because he got lousy grades because he spent too much time hanging out with left-over ‘60’s radicals.
Given Obama's quotes about drugs, booze and school, I hardly think Boerner's tales about sleeping bags and school books is the Lord's truth.
A Mr Boerner, now a successful member of society, has some photographs which purport to be Barack Obama in a students apartment in the area. Barrack poses with Siddique, a former Occidental Colllege friend. It ties in with less than comfortable surroundings. Still really no proof of where it was. Register entries have been provided which show Barack at a New York address- a students crash pad or such. These surroundings are mentioned by Barack Obama recalling his stay initially at Columbia. He seems to be saying- and I stand corrected, that it was a semester only, that he chummed with Barack.
The now defunct campus newspaper was the Sundial. A reproduction of it is on the internet. Dated March 10th 1983, it is titled: "Breaking The War Mentality" by Barack Obama.
Persons have questioned the sudden recollection by Mr Boerner and indeed a professor, a Michael Wolf, of MTV about Barack being at Columbia. They ask "how is it that they were silent during the election campaign"?
What is likely are the more vital questions, is the detailed information as to registration and dates of attendance at the University. How did the President get the high honors and so on?.
In Afghanistan, it was the Mujahideen, who would have been active during the time the Reverend Manning, mentions the Al Queda. Still a like organization. All this raises more questions.
Yes, he's making Obama's opposition look like raving lunatics.
I loved the video when Pastor Manning called Obama a "Mack Daddy", but this may be over the top.
He wrote that he never noticed BO, even though they would have taken many of the same courses and would have belonged to the same academic organizations. He made no wild claims, just remarked on how odd it was that BO either was in none of his classes, or made no impression whatsoever on anybody in his particular circle of acquaintances.
LOL...you mean TOTUS swallowed a Thesaurus...
About Colombia —— is there a difference between attending Columbia College as compared to Columbia University? Didn’t O go to the college? Would those at the university, at the same time, have any knowledge of him if he were at the college? And doesn’t the college operate on its own? I’m not defending the POS, but I do have those questions.
Boy, I sure would be disappointed if he DIDN’T write it. This is the most sophomoric writing one can expect from a college student, I would expect he would disown it if he had any idea of how idiotic it sounds!
ROTFLMAO! I was going to excerpt some of the passages that sounded particularly bad, so I copied the whole thing into this post, figuring I would delete anything that didn’t sound completely asinine...
I couldn’t delete anything! After the first two paragraphs, I realized the whole thing was imbecilic.
1981 to 1983 Afghans were in a fight for their lives against the Soviets. Amongst the mujahideen, the lines were not as pronounced during this time period as they might later become. So this, if proven, could make him a “freedom fighter” allied with Reagan.
Columbia must have had a 'special degree program' tailored for Obama because no one remembers him.
Although Fanon never professed to be a communist, Césaire [Fanon's mentor] ran on the communist ticket as a parliamentary delegate from Martinique to the first National Assembly of the Fourth Republic. Fanon was a black "anticolonial" agitator who never had anything bad to say about Soviet imperialism, only that of the West. It's no surprise that 0 has no interest in celebrating the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The letter 0 wrote about nuclear disarmament is also crucial. His thesis was on the same subject. The "nuclear freeze" movement 0 supported was manipulated and encouraged by Soviet intelligence.
Far more than Islam, 0's background is absolutely infested with evidence of communist sympathy and associations.
"WELL LOOKEE HERE! IS THAT BILL SHAKESPEARE?"
I had observed a statement by Wayne Allyn Root who graduated in 1983 in political science at Columbia. I presume the same person. Certainly no innuendo or accusatory statements by him. Simply that he just did not remember Barack Obama. He does not know former students who would have remembered Barack.
Mr Root ran on the Bob Barr ticket as a Libertarian. Very curious that a stand out person like Barack (like him or not) did not ring a bell with Wayne Allyn Root.
The point is that Barry placed himself in Pakistan region during this timeframe. If I am mistaken on the ban, mea culpa - I am sure he was only there to advance the cause of America.
“Given Obama’s quotes about drugs, booze and school, I hardly think Boerner’s tales about sleeping bags and school books is the Lord’s truth.”
I’m not familiar with BHO’s quotes but I hardly see how the stories about sleeping bags and school books are negated by drugs and booze. Boerner claims he’s an eye witness. You claim to possess better information. Please explain.
See my post at #16...I took the time to transcribe that editorial from The Sundial”.
It was disgusting to take the time to do, but the pdf gave me a headache just looking at it.
I did that for the greater good...:)
No, not crazy...maybe a bit extreme...
That is correct, we dismantled that rumor. Going to Pakistan on an American passport was just fine.
Evidence to the contrary?
How can you prove a negative? Where are his school records? Release them, 0b0z0, if they ever exist!
Your friendly Ghoster
“I couldnt delete anything! After the first two paragraphs, I realized the whole thing was imbecilic.”
Hahahahahaha...so what are you saying...that TOTUS really is the brains of the outfit?
Go Pastor Manning Go!!! Take the fight to that kenyan commie RAT bastard 0bozo, the long legged mack daddy!!!
One or both people are lying about what went on in Obama's "college" days.
Most universities have a program like that. Usually called something like the "College of General Studies", as opposed to the "College of Arts and Sciences" which a typical name for the main degree-granting division. "General Studies" students usually can't register for classes until all the regular students have already registered (so hard to get into a lot of the courses), and many departments require majors to be in the "Arts and Sciences" division and upper level courses are often only open to majors. It's not the "same degree" if it's from the General Studies division -- the diploma names the school/college/division which awarded the degree, and degrees from General Studies-type divisions are much less marketable, both to employers and graduate/professional schools.
But Obama was a regular matriculated student in Columbia College, which is the mian "Ivy League" undergraduate division of Columbia University. Given that he was a very intelligent black student, I'm sure he would have had no trouble getting in the regular way, given that affirmative action was pretty heavy in that era. He probably wouldn't have been able to get in if he'd been white, but that's true of most black students who attended top colleges in those days (and is still true now, to some extent).
Good work indeed. I give my self a gentle slap on the wrist because I should have read all threads. I have three editions of Defiance, paper back magazines published by a Dotson Rader of New York. 1960's stuff. All sorts of radicals and far out leftists. Here is my blurted out statement on that young Barack Obama of the Sundial.
My God! They've got him!
Actually quite a few souls have, but don't let pesky things like facts bother you.
Have you, or anyone else out there, ever seen such photos of the illegal alien and the usurper who stole the W.H,, huh???
This is a man without a valid resume!!!
Bill Ayers probably wrote it.
Actually I think he's part of reality-based community of slimy political opportunists who know they can enrich themselves by building a political base among ignorant and poorly educated people with outlandish claims like this. Remember the wild tale that Al Sharpton used to launch himself into political prominence.
A man in incognito, and evidently NO paper-trail whatsoever!!!
Osama Bin Laden and Zbigniew Brezinski
Sorry, I can’t upload the photo!!!

And Indonesian passports, too
Are you from New York???
LOL! “My God! They’ve got him!”
Really, though, it was hard to do. I think I permanently damaged my eyes from rolling them the entire time.
Interestingly, I had been trying to figure out a way to obtain a copy of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky without paying for it, and the copies at the library were backordered for months but I finally got one to read.
After forcing myself to read that despicable piece of crap, I thought I would record an audio version to give to my acquaintances (against the law, yes, but...I wouldn’t have lost any sleep) but I could not force myself to record more than one chapter.
To make an audiobook listenable, you have to read it as if you really believe it. And I just couldn’t do it...
You are not allowed to see his medical record and he had a relationship with Larry Sinclair, maybe with the murdered gay choir master in his church???
Well that is singularly homo. Po’ Boy. LOL
