Bill O’Reilly Obama college records, Typical lame O’Reilly question, Which governments helped Obama and how much?, Justice Dept. Attorneys help Obama hide college records, Taxpayers pay

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“Khalid Al-Mansour was “raising money” for Obama.”
“Khalid Al-Mansour was trying to help Obama get into Harvard Law School.”…Percy Sutton

“Barack Obama, show me the college loans.”…Citizen Wells

Bill O’Reilly, on Fox News, has asked lame questions about Obama for years and one could certainly make a strong point that he has protected Obama.

Recently O’Reilly once again lamely raised the spectre of Obama’s hidden college records.

“How much the system helped President Obama is unknown, as his college records have been kept private.

To be fair to the president, it would be helpful to know how much the government subsidized his climb to the top.”

College records kept private?

Obama used Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie and other private practice attorneys prior to January 2009 and a long list of US Justice Dept. attorneys, at taxpayer expense, afterwards, to keep his college and other records hidden from the public.

How much the government subsidized him?

Bill O’Reilly, how about which governments helped Obama and how much?

We know that Obama had a full scholarship to Occidental, which was not academic or athletic. This came after a self admitted poor performance in high school.

Who paid for Obama’s free ride at Occidental?

“WILL ARABS BACK TIES TO BLACKS WITH CASH?

Vernon Jarrett

What about those rumored billions of dollars the oil rich Arab nations are
supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions?
“It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states,”
predicted a black San Francisco lawyer who has close ties to officials of
the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

“The first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in
December.” said Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour, formerly known as Donald
Warden, of the Holmes and Warden law firm.

Al-Mansour is the lawyer who filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support
of OPEC last winter when the International Association of Machinists and
Aerospace Workers (IAM) filed an antitrust suit against the 13 OPEC
countries in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.”

“College education is one of the best investments America can make for our future,”  “This is important for all of us. We can’t price most Americans out of a college education. We can’t make higher education a luxury. It’s an economic imperative. Every American should be able to afford it. So that’s why I’m here.”…Barack Obama, Chapel Hill.

“This is something Michelle and I know first hand about. I’m not speculating on this, because we’ve been in your shoes. Neither of us came from wealthy families. Both of us graduated from college and law school with a mountain of debt. When we married, we got poorer together. We, we combined our liabilities into one big liability. We paid more for our student loans than we paid on our mortgage each month. And that went on for years.”…Barack Obama

“Under President Obama, the costs of college have skyrocketed — making it more difficult for students to attend college — and his economic policies have made it harder for graduates to get jobs,” …Amanda Henneberg, Romney campaign spokesperson

“Frankly, I think this is beneath the dignity of the White House,” “Democrats and Republicans knew that this was going to take effect. Democrats and Republicans fully expected this would be taken care of, and for the president to make a campaign issue out of this and then to travel to three battleground states, and go to three college campuses on taxpayers’ money to try to make this a political issue is pathetic. And his campaign ought to be reimbursing the Treasury for the cost of this trip.”

“Our country’s facing some major economic and fiscal challenges,” the speaker added. “Yet here’s the president wasting time on a fake fight to try to gain his own reelection. These are the types of political stunts and frankly they’re not worth it and worthy of his office. This is the biggest job in the world, and I’ve never seen a president make it smaller.”…John Boehner

How do you know when Obama is lying?

Are his lips moving?

Obama has lied repeatedly to college students about what he is doing to help them and about what the Republicans are doing to hurt them.

Even FactCheck.org has called Obama on his lies.

“Obama Misquotes GOP Congresswoman”

“President Obama misrepresented the position of Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx on college debt. The president quoted Foxx as saying that she had “very little tolerance for people who tell me they graduate with debt.” But Foxx was speaking explicitly about those with very large amounts of debt, a fact that Obama omitted and that changes the meaning of the North Carolina congresswoman’s statement.
The sin of omission was in Obama’s speech in Boulder, Colo., as the president pushed for the extension of current federal student loan interest rates.
Obama, April 24: I want to read a quote. This is from a Republican congresswoman. I didn’t really understand this.  (Laughter.) I’m quoting her. She said that she has “very little tolerance for people who tell me they graduate with debt… because there’s no reason for that.”  She said, students who rack up student loan debt are just sitting on their butts, having opportunity “dumped in your lap.”
Audience:  Booo –
Obama: You guys can Google her or what have you.
At the president’s suggestion, we did Google her. Those remarks were made by Foxx on the G. Gordon Liddy radio show on April 12. But Obama cut out a key part of her statement, changing the meaning of what she actually said.
Foxx, April 12: I have very little tolerance for people who tell me that they graduate with $200,000 of debt or even $80,000 of debt because there’s no reason for that. We live in an opportunity society and people are forgetting that. I remind folks all the time that the Declaration of Independence says ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ You don’t sit on your butt and have it dumped in your lap.
The president’s remarks suggest that any college student who graduates with debt is intolerable to Foxx, but that’s not accurate. She explicitly mentions only students with very high debt burdens — above $80,000. This is well above the average level of college debt even at the most expensive universities.
The Institute for College Access and Success found that, in 2010, two-thirds of college graduates faced debt after graduation and that the average debt burden was $25,250. This varied greatly from state to state and campus to campus, but the debt burden at even the most expensive colleges averaged only $55,250 — well short of the type of debt situation described by  Foxx.
‘Sit On Your Butt?’
Foxx’s suggestion that students should not “sit on your butt” may stem from her personal experience. “I worked my way” through the University of North Carolina, she said in the interview. “It took seven years.” She even worked in high school as a school janitor.
But she graduated in 1968 when college was less expensive — and work was easier to find.
Back then, costs were roughly half of what they are today, even adjusting for inflation. According to the most recent figures from the National Center for Education Statistics, in the 1967-68 school year, the cost of tuition, room and board at a public institution like UNC averaged $6,716 (in inflation-adjusted dollars). In the 2009-2010 school year, the figure was $12,681 for public institutions, and $31,876 for private schools.
And jobs were easier to get. In 1968, the national unemployment rate for individuals of college age (16 through 24) ranged from 8.1 percent to 9.6 percent, depending on the month. More recently it’s been nearly double that — 16.4 percent in March, down from 17.5 percent a year earlier.
Nevertheless, Obama twisted Foxx’s words by omitting a crucial part of her quote, making it sound as though she was saying any amount of student loan debt is a sign of laziness. That is not accurate.”
Donald Trump extended his offer and challenge  to Obama to noon today. Trump has offered $ 5 million to Obama’s charity of choice for simply releasing his college and passport records. Of course Obama will not comply.
And there are reasons.
As more Americans are discovering due to this challenge, Obama has kept his records hidden with the help of US Justice Department attorneys at taxpayer expense. What most people, including college students did not know, is that Obama attended Occidental on a full scholarship. He was helped by Khalid Al-Mansour financially and with influence to get into Harvard. Mansour worked closely with the Saudis for years to raise money for college students.
Watch for a Trump announcement today.
Why has Obama kept his college records hidden?

Obama, show me the student loans!

“we leave nobody behind”…Barack Obama

Donald trump extended his 5 million dollar offer to Obama until Thursday, November 1, 2012, due to Hurricane Sandy. Here are some tweets from Donald Trump on Twitter.

For someone who demanded 20 years of Mitt’s tax returns, you would think my offer to donate $5M to charity for his records is an easy go.

It is really a shame that Barack Obama may stop $5M from being generously donated to charity all because he refuses to be transparent.

Lots of response that Obama should give the $5M to the families of our great heroes who were murdered in Benghazi.

One of my many Twitter followers suggested Obama should take my offer & give $1,250,000 to each family of the four

Pretty audacious for Obama to call @MittRomney a BSer when he has lied about so much we don’t have room to write.

I have decided to add a caveat to my offer. Obama can’t decide to send my $5M to Rev. Wright if he releases his records.

Barack Obama has everything to gain. Why would anyone ever deny $5M to charity?

If my offer is refused, every undecided OH voter will be fully aware that Obama denied $5M to charity all because he is hiding something!

If Obama doesn’t accept my offer to be fully transparent, what will he say?

Alert…The president knew that the ambassador was being attacked in Benghazi. He did nothing…he is no leader.

A lot changed when David Letterman said ” he was probably born in this country”— the word probably is a total disaster for Obama.

Many people are saying that my challenge to Obama is having a huge negative effect on his poll numbers — I agree.

I’m not hearing much from Obama or his administration about my $5M offer to charity or to which charity the money will go.

Obama lied 100% about Libya and the killings–emails are absolute. He must release his records on Wednesday and stop the lies.

Because of the hurricane, I am extending my 5 million dollar offer for President Obama’s favorite charity until 12PM on Thursday.

How did Obama go to a Las Vegas fundraiser on 9.12, the day after he refused to send help to Americans in Benghazi?

Why does Obama believe he shouldn’t comply with record releases that his predecessors did of their own volition? Hiding something?

The President has until tomorrow at 12 noon to pick up $5M for his favorite charity. Looking like he won’t be doing it. What is he hiding?

From John Hammer of the Rhino Times, in Greensboro, NC October 18, 2012.

“Another debate and another pounding of the economic policies of President Barack Hussein Obama by Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Obama has a difficult task running for reelection with the economy in its current shape. Romney is relentless in pointing out that the economy grew slower this year than last year and grew slower last year than the year before, and that 23 million Americans are unemployed. When Romney says the real unemployment rate is 10.7 percent Obama doesn’t argue. When Romney says that Obama has piled up budget deficits of over $1 trillion year after year, Obama doesn’t argue.

Obama does say that his policies are going to work, but it’s hard to sell the idea that policies that haven’t worked for four years are suddenly going to start working in the fifth year or maybe the sixth year or the seventh year.

Romney talks a lot about Obamacare, but Obama doesn’t. He talks about bringing health care to every American, but he doesn’t dwell on Obamacare because polls show that most Americans are against it. It’s his signature piece but he has all but given up selling it to the American people.

When it comes to the contraception aspect of Obamacare, Obama is extremely misleading. Nobody is talking about not providing contraception services. The question is, who pays. According to Obamacare it has to be a free service. Why? Why is that free? Most medical care is not free even if you have insurance. What’s more, Obamacare will force the Catholic Church and other religious organizations to provide abortion services that they believe are morally wrong.

If Obamacare is not changed by the courts or by Congress, it is likely that Catholic hospitals, clinics, social service providers, universities, schools and other outreach programs will close. Perhaps Obama has been listening to his Catholic Vice President Joe Biden and not the Catholic bishops. But he might want to pay attention because if Catholic hospitals close in the major cities, there is going to be a health care disaster, and the Catholic bishops have made it abundantly clear that they are going to have no part in providing abortions.

Biden was entirely wrong in his answer about the situation with Obamacare and the Catholic Church, but then Biden has been told by at least one bishop that he is not a Catholic in good standing and should not participate in the sacraments.

, , ,

There are only two possibilities I can think of when it comes to the response by President Obama to the planned and well-executed terrorist attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya.

One is that when an American ambassador was killed in the line of duty for the first time since 1979, during the Carter administration, President Obama decided that in the midst of a presidential election he could not afford to admit that he had refused to give an American ambassador in one of the most dangerous places on earth adequate protection. So he lied to the American people about what happened and hoped that the truth wouldn’t come out until after Nov. 6.

The other is that the Obama administration is so incompetent that it borders on criminal. For two weeks the Obama administration – through its press secretary, Jay Carney, and the US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice – claimed that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration over a video some nutcase in California made.

But the night of Sept. 11, when the attack was underway, Obama should have immediately known that an American embassy compound where the American ambassador was in residence was under attack by well-organized and well-armed terrorists. We have one of the most sophisticated communications systems in the world. If the president isn’t informed about a terrorist attack on a US embassy compound immediately, then what is the system used for? To make sure Obama doesn’t miss any basketball scores? When high-level State Department officials are being killed that is an emergency.

The State Department knew. The intelligence community knew. Obama made a big deal about watching the attack on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan live in the White House. It wasn’t exactly true that they were watching it live, but they were watching the video the night that it happened.

The American embassy compound in Benghazi had surveillance cameras. The Rhino Times office also has surveillance cameras. You can watch The Rhino Times surveillance cameras real time from a computer, tablet or smart phone anywhere you can hook up to the internet. I cannot believe that the surveillance cameras at the American compound in Benghazi were not hooked up to some communication device so that they could be watched by people in the State Department and intelligence community.

Even without the surveillance cameras, the US had competent people on the ground who, once they got away from immediate danger, reported to their superiors. In fact, according to the State Department timeline, a call about the attack went out immediately with frequent updates. The State Department knew as soon as the men in the compound knew that they were under attack by an organized force.

Vice President Biden says that he didn’t know, and that is entirely possible. Why would anyone bother to tell the vice president, even if he were a competent, honest, intelligent human being? The vice president isn’t going to be making any decisions. He is completely out of the loop as long as the president is alive. Biden may still believe that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration or he may believe that it took place in the last century where he evidently spends a lot of his time.

But President Obama knew or should have known within minutes exactly what was happening in Benghazi. He should have received the reports from those on the ground and he should have been watching the action on the surveillance cameras. But the reports from those in the compound who escaped only to be attacked at the so-called safe house about a mile away should have been more than enough proof that this was a highly organized, well-planned attack.

So in this next debate Obama needs to explain to the American people what happened. Was there such a tremendous communications breakdown that he didn’t get word from Libya about what happened for two weeks? Did the State Department put the Benghazi terrorist attack report on a sailing ship to send it to the White House? How on earth could a report and surveillance video take two weeks to get to the White House?

Obama needs to explain. If the first day the White House had gotten the story wrong that could be attributed to an honest mistake, but in today’s world to claim that the White House didn’t get information from its embassy for two weeks is simply a lie or evidence of overwhelming incompetence.

, , ,

Liberals love this, and the moderator for the presidential debate, Candy Crawley, is certainly a card-carrying liberal, which is why she re-asked the incredibly stupid question about making AK-47s illegal in the United States. Romney answered the question correctly by saying that fully automatic weapons are already illegal in the US. They have been since 1934. It is possible to get a license to have one, but it is not easy or cheap.

One of the so-called fact checkers said Romney was wrong when he said that fully automatic weapons were illegal. Technically Romney was wrong. Most people would tell you that it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon without the proper permit, but the fact checkers evidently would tell you that is wrong because you can carry a concealed weapon on your own property without a permit. Technically there was no Vietnam War, but that is simply not how we speak. Technically only a couple of hundred people get to vote for president, but candidates and pundits talk about voters in the presidential race all the time. Nobody says “people who vote for electors committed to one candidate,” we call them voters.

However, what the question was about were “assault weapons,” which is a term invented during the Clinton administration. The AK-47 is not an assault weapon; it is an assault rifle because it is fully automatic and for all practical purposes illegal. The assault weapons ban was not about banning a particular kind of rifle but banning rifles because of the way they looked. Rifles that operate identically could be legal or illegal based on how they looked. One that looked like a hunting rifle would be legal and one that looked like an assault rifle would be illegal.

It was a law that simply made people who want all guns to be illegal happy, but didn’t really do anything. Now many hunters are using what are technically assault weapons for hunting. They are lightweight, accurate and make good hunting rifles. And it is true that they are used to kill people. But knives are also frequently used to kill people and there was no question for the candidates about making knives illegal.

President Harry S. Truman, a Democrat who won the respect of both parties and whom history has smiled upon, had a plaque on his desk that read, “The Buck Stops here!”

President Obama, a Democrat who has not won the respect of Republicans and is losing the respect of many Democrats and whose place in history is unknown, has no such plaque, and up until Tuesday night did not follow the philosophy expressed on the plaque.

We know this because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was sent out to take the fall for Benghazi. The buck stopped with the secretary of state, not the president. You have to wonder what Truman would say about such cowardice by an American president.

Obama takes full credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden although he was over 7,000 miles away. That was Obama who took Bin Laden out, not the Navy Seals who were onsite risking their lives and doing the shooting. But when an American ambassador gets killed in the line of duty for the first time since 1979, it was not Obama’s fault, but the fault of the secretary of state.

During the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, the story changed again. Evidently having Hillary Rodham Clinton take the fall for the terrorist attack in Benghazi was not working with the American people. So during the Tuesday night debate Wendy Crawley threw Obama a softball so he could take full responsibility for the failure.

The attack was on Sept. 11, and on Oct. 16 the president finally takes full responsibility. It does make you wonder how many months it would have taken for Obama to take full responsibility if it wasn’t an election year.

, , ,

The more we learn about Obama the more questions arise. According to his own personal history Barry Obama quit being Barry and became Barack when he was at Occidental College in Los Angeles. By the time he went to Columbia University he was going by Barack exclusively, even to the point, according to his sister, of trying to get his family to call him Barack. But Martha Raddatz reportedly invited Barry Obama to her wedding. So if everyone called him Barack and had no reason to even know that he was called Barry as a kid, why was Barry invited to the wedding.

Or did really close friends at Harvard call him Barry? We’ll never know.

, , ,

They call it the Stupid Party for a reason, and unfortunately the reason hasn’t gone away. Four years ago the moderator of the vice presidential debate, Gwen Ifill, had written a book about Obama. If he were elected her book would make money, if he lost then the book would go in the remainder bin. She had a lot of money riding on the outcome of the debate and the election.

But then the Republicans allow that snafu to be topped. Barry Obama went to Martha Raddatz’s wedding and she was invited to the Obamas’ wedding but didn’t attend. However, her husband (now her ex) did. Do the Republicans vet these people at all? Do they have a list of Obama’s immediate family and if the person is not on that list, not named George Obama for instance, then they are eligible?

Then when you think it can’t get any worse they come up with this woman for the second town hall meeting, Candy Crawley, who gave Obama 9 percent more time than Romney and was much harder on Romney than on Obama. She also selected the questions, which were Obama-friendly, and asked her own follow-up questions, which she was not supposed to do according to the agreement signed by both campaigns.

This just in for the next and final debate, Obama’s campaign Communications Director David Axelrod is unexpectedly unavailable to moderate the debate so the Commission on Presidential Debates has asked Michelle Obama if she will step in. The Commission on Presidential Debates has noted that Mrs. Obama is a Harvard Law graduate like president Obama but did not attend Harvard Law School at the same time as President Obama, so they do not think she will have a conflict of interest based on their law school years.

The Republican Party has reportedly agreed to accept Michelle Obama as a fair and impartial moderator but has insisted that her daughters not be allowed to sit with her while she moderates the debate.

Who are these people on the Commission on Presidential Debates? Do they pick moderators from a list submitted by the Obama campaign? It’s like having the Ram’s Club pick the referees for the Duke-Carolina game. The Republicans have four years to get their act together but they had better get some conservative Republicans appointed to the Commission on Presidential Debates.”

Thank you for paying for my college.

I am at your service.

From NewsMax September 23, 2008.

“How exactly did Barack Obama pay for his Harvard Law School education?

The way the Obama campaign has answered the question was simply hard work and student loans.

But new questions have been raised about Obama’s student loans and Obama’s ties to a radical Muslim activist who reportedly was raising money for Obama’s Harvard studies during the years 1988 to 1991.

The allegations first surfaced in late March, when former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner who was “raising money” for Obama had approached him in 1988 to help Obama get into Harvard Law School.

In the interview, Sutton says he first heard of Obama about twenty years ago from Khalid Al-Mansour, a Black Muslim and Black Nationalist who was a “mentor” to the founders of the Black Panther party at the time the party was founded in the early 1960s.

Sutton described al-Mansour as advisor to “one of the world’s richest men,” Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal.

Prince Alwaleed catapulted to fame in the United States after the September 11 attacks, when New York mayor Rudy Guiliani refused his $10 million check to help rebuild Manhattan, because the Saudi prince hinted publicly that America’s pro-Israel policies were to blame for the attacks.

Sutton knew Al-Mansour well, since the two men had been business partners and served on several corporate boards together.

As Sutton remembered, Al-Mansour was raising money for Obama’s education and seeking recommendations for him to attend Harvard Law School.

“I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,” Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter. “The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas.”

Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt told Newsmax that Sutton’s account was “bogus” and a “fabrication that has been retracted” by a spokesman for the Sutton family.

He referred Newsmax to a pro-Obama blog published on Politico.com by reporter Ben Smith.

In a September 3 blog entry, Smith wrote that “a spokesman for Sutton’s family, Kevin Wardally” said that Sutton had been mistaken when he made those comments about Obama and Khalid Al-Mansour.

Smith suggested the retraction “put the [Obama/Al-Mansour] story to rest for good.”

Wardally told Smith that the “information Mr. Percy Sutton imported [sic] on March 25 in a NY1 News interview regarding his connection to Barack Obama is inaccurate. As best as our family and the Chairman’s closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.”

Asked which parts of Percy Sutton’s statements were a “fabrication,” LaBolt said “all of it. Al Mansour doesn’t know Obama. And Sutton’s spokesman retracted the story. The letter [to Harvard, which Percy Sutton says he wrote on behalf of Obama], the ‘payments for loans’ — all of it, not true,” he added.

Newsmax contacted the Sutton family and they categorically denied Wardally’s claims to Smith and the Politico.com. So there was no retraction of Sutton’s original interview, during which he revealed that Khalid Al-Mansour was “raising money” for Obama and had asked Sutton to write a letter of recommendation for Obama to help him get accepted at Harvard Law School.

Sutton’s personal assistant told Newsmax that neither Mr. Sutton or his family had ever heard of Kevin Wardally.

”Who is this person?” asked Sutton’s assistant, Karen Malone.

When told that he portrayed himself as a “spokesman” for the family, Malone told Newsmax, “Well, he’s not.”

According to a 2006 New York magazine profile, Wardally is part of a “New New Guard” in Harlem politics that has been challenging the “lions” of the old guard, Charles Rangel and Percy Sutton. That makes him an unlikely candidate to speak on behalf of Sutton.

Sutton maintains an office at the Manhattan headquarters of the firm he founded, Inner City Broadcasting Corporation. ICBC owns New York radio stations WBLS and WLIB.

Sutton’s son Pierre (“Pepe”) runs ICBC along with his daughter, Keisha Sutton-James. Malone told Newsmax that she had consulted with Sutton’s family members at the station and confirmed that no one knew Kevin Wardally or had authorized him to speak on behalf of the family.

For someone claiming to be a “spokesman” for the Sutton family, who was authorized to call Percy Sutton a liar, Wardally even got Percy Sutton’s age wrong.

Sutton is not 86, as Wardally said, but close to 88. He was born on Nov. 24, 1920.

Wardally responded to a several Newsmax phone messages and emails with a terse one-line comment, maintaining his statement that Percy Sutton “misspoke” in the television interview.

“I believe the statement speaks for itself and the Sutton Family and I have nothing further to say on the topic,” he wrote in an email.

Asked to explain why it was that no one at Inner City Broadcasting Corp. knew of him or accepted him as a family spokesman, Wardally responded later that he had been retained by a nephew of the elder Sutton, who “is in our office almost every week.”

Wardally works for Bill Lynch Associations, a Harlem political consulting firm. The nephew, Chuck Sutton, no longer works with the elder Sutton at Inner City Broadcasting, but for a high-tech start-up called Synematics.

“Percy Sutton doesn’t go out idly on television saying things he doesn’t mean,” a well-connected black entrepreneur who knows Sutton told Newsmax.

Ben LaBolt’s claim that “Al Mansour doesn’t know Obama” was contradicted by Al Mansour himself in an extended interview with Newsmax.

Comparing the revelation of his ties to Obama to the controversy surrounding Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Al Mansour said that he was determined to keep a low profile to avoid embarrassing Obama.

“In respect to Mr. Obama, I have told him, because so many people are running after him… I was determined that I was never going to be in that situation,” he told Newsmax.

Al Mansour said he was deliberately avoiding any contact with the candidate. “I’m not involved in any way in celebrity sweepstakes,” he said. “I wish him well, anything I can do if he lets me know, I’ll let him know what I think I can do or can’t. But I don’t collect autographs. I wish him the best, and hope he can win the election.”

He repeatedly declined to comment on the Percy Sutton allegations, either to confirm or to deny them.

“Any statement that I make would only further the activity which is not in the interest of Barack, not in the interest of Percy, not in the interest of anyone,” Al Mansour said.

Unanswered Questions

Sen. Obama has refused to instruct Harvard Law School to release any information about his time there as a student, or about his student loans.

Newsmax contacted the Dean of Students, the Director of Student Financial Services, the Registrar, and the Bursar of Harvard Law School. None would provide any specific information on Barack Obama’s time at Harvard, except for his dates of attendance (1988-1991) or his year of graduation, 1991.

A spokesman for the law school, Michael Armini, said it was Harvard policy not to divulge information on alumni without their approval.

“There are lots of reporters nosing around the library,” he acknowledged. So far, none had turned up any new information.

Law professors Lawrence Tribe and Charles Ogletree have both said publicly that they were “impressed” by Obama when he was a student.

Sources close to the Sutton family told Newsmax that Percy Sutton wrote a letter of recommendation for Obama to Ogletree at Khalid Al-Mansour’s request, but Ogletree declined to answer Newsmax questions about this.”

Obama attended Occidental College on a full scholarship that was not merit or athletic.

From Citizen Wells August 11, 2012.

“U.S. Sen. Barack Obama is usually described as an alumnus of Columbia University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, and of Harvard Law School.

But the Illinois Democrat began his undergraduate education at Occidental, and the 1,825-student liberal arts college in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los
Angeles isn’t shy about claiming him as an alumnus for his two years there (1979-81) on full scholarship.”

I think we can safely say where Obama got the money to attend college.

From Citizen Wells September 24, 2012.

“From the St. Petersburg Evening Independent November 6, 1979.

“WILL ARABS BACK TIES TO BLACKS WITH CASH?

Vernon Jarrett

What about those rumored billions of dollars the oil rich Arab nations are
supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions?
“It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states,”
predicted a black San Francisco lawyer who has close ties to officials of
the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

“The first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in
December.” said Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour, formerly known as Donald
Warden, of the Holmes and Warden law firm.

Al-Mansour is the lawyer who filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support
of OPEC last winter when the International Association of Machinists and
Aerospace Workers (IAM) filed an antitrust suit against the 13 OPEC
countries in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

The OPEC countries did not answer the price-fixing charges on the grounds
that a U.S. court did not have jurisdiction over a foreign country.
However, Al-Mansour argued for OPEC as chairman of the Concerned Black
Americans in Suppport of Africa and the Middle East. The suit was dismissed
on Aug. 22.

Al-Mansour, 39, for several years has urged the rich Arab kingdoms to
cultivate stronger ties to America’s blacks by supporting black businesses
and black colleges and giving financial help to disadvantaged students.

In September, Al-Mansour said, he presented a proposed special aid program
to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz when he visited OPEC headquarters in
Vienna. Al-Mansour urged the establishment of a fund that would provide
$20-million per year for 10 years to aid 10,000 minority students each
year, including blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, Asians, and native Americans.”

“I spent the last two years of high school in a daze, locking away the questions that life seemed insistent on imposing. I kept playing basketball, attended
classed sparingly, drank beer heavily, and tried drugs enthusiastically.”…Barack Obama

“I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.”…Obama, “Dreams From My Father” 

“In both conversations with Obama for America and AKP Message & Media, I explained that on November 6, 1999, I had been introduced to Barack Obama by a friend and that Obama had, in fact, sold me an eight-ball of cocaine and had himself engaged in smoking crack cocaine in my limo on that date and again in my hotel room the following day.”…Larry Sinclair, “Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder”

Where is the mainstream media on this?

Obama stated that he was “more or less broke” in 2000.

The Obamas had an adjusted gross income of over $ 240,000 in 2000.

Something doesn’t add up.

From the LA Times April 27, 2008.

“In his book “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama tells how his finances had deteriorated to such a point that his credit card was initially rejected when he tried to rent a car at the 2000 Democratic convention in Los Angeles. He said he had originally planned to dedicate that summer “to catching up on work at the law practice that I’d left unattended during the campaign (a neglect that had left me more or less broke).”

2000 Tax Return.

http://www.barackobama.com/tax-returns/

Is this the reason?

Obama admitted drug use.

From ABC News May 25, 2012.

“Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama never tried to say he didn’t inhale.

In his 1995 memoir “Dreams from My Father,” Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke “in a white classmate’s sparkling new van,” he would smoke “in the dorm room of some brother” and he would smoke “on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids.”

He would smoke it here and there. He would smoke it anywhere.

Now a soon-to-be published biography by David Maraniss entitled “Barack Obama: The Story” gives more detail on Obama’s pot-smoking days, complete with testimonials from young Barry Obama’s high school buddies, a group that went by the name “the Choom Gang.” Choom was slang for smoking marijuana.
Maraniss portrays the teenage Obama as not just a pot smoker, but a pot-smoking innovator.

“As a member of the Choom Gang,” Maraniss writes, “Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends.”

The first Obama-inspired trend: “Total Absorption” or “TA”.

“TA was the opposite of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled,” explains Maraniss. Here’s how it worked:
If you exhaled prematurely when you were with the Choom Gang, “you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around.”

As one of Obama’s old high school buddies tells Maraniss: “Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated.”

Another Obama innovation: “Roof Hits.”

“When they were chooming in a car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads
back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.”

Maraniss also says Obama was known for his “Interceptions”: “When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted
‘Intercepted!,’ and took an extra hit.””

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/05/obama-and-his-pot-smoking-choom-gang/

Obama has admitted to cocaine use as well.

“maybe a little blow when you could afford it.”

Larry Sinclair allegations.

From Citizen Wells May 21, 2008.

“I reported many weeks ago, after reading the allegations by Larry Sinclair that he and Obama used drugs and engaged in gay sex in November 1999, that Obama was absent from the Illinois Senate on November 4, 1999. We have proof that Larry Sinclair was in Chicago from November 3 to November 8, 1999. We now know that Obama was in Chicago on November 8, 1999. We also know that the Illinois Senate was not in session again until November 16, 1999.

Obama was in Chicago at least by November 8, 1999 to speak at Public Interest Law Week at Northwestern University School of Law. Obama was a speaker at the 12:00 Noon Keynote Address on Monday, November 8, 1999.

So now we know that both Larry Sinclair and Obama were in Chicago at the same time.

We have allegations from a former chef in Chicago of persistent rumors from the gay community in Chicago that Obama was on the down low.

We also have allegations from Reverend Manning that Obama and Jeremiah Wright are closet homosexuals. Reverend Manning states that he has solid proof.”

Obama’s speech at the law school was not widely reported until 2008.

Stuart Levine did not give his testimony in the Rezko Trial until 2008.

Larry Sinclair first went public with his allegations in January 2008.

Was Obama one of the male buddies who partied with Stuart Levine?

From Citizen Wells May 11, 2010.

From the Tony Rezko Trial

Remember, the IL State Capital is Springfield.

”Tales of the ‘Purple Hotel’
March 31, 2008; 2:43 p.m.
Prosecutors have taken a turn from the track of the day’s testimony and are asking political fixer and prosecution star witness Stuart Levine again about his drug use, the first time they have done so since early in his testimony.
Levine has said he used a number of drugs in the 1980s and into 2004, including cocaine and crystal methamphetamine.
He said he would make cash withdrawals, give that money to five male friends and use drugs with them during hotel parties. Those parties took place in Springfield and Lincolnwood at a place Levine said he and his friends came to call “the Purple Hotel.””

“ Trail of receipts from the Purple Hotel
April 4, 2008; 10:55 a.m.
More tales of the Purple Hotel kicked off this morning’s session of the Antoin “Tony” Rezko corruption trial.
On Thursday, Rezko’s lawyer Joseph Duffy grilled prosecution star witness Stuart Levine about a $761 transaction on his credit card statement for Saturday, Nov. 2, 2002, at the garish purple-painted Lincolnwood hotel that at the time was part of the Radisson chain. Levine has testified that he and a regular group of “drug buddies” often went to the hotel for daylong binges of crystal meth, cocaine, animal tranquilizers and other drugs.
The significance of that date is that it was the same that Rezko and Levine first met. The occasion was a dinner party, and during the chitchat Levine has said the two men came to realize they had been on opposite sides of a shady real estate deal.”

“This morning, Duffy questioned Levine about more charges he incurred at the Radisson. On Saturday, Oct. 26, exactly one week before the dinner party, Levine’s credit-card statement reflected a $1,077 charge at the Radisson, and exactly a week before that there was another $1021 charge there.
Duffy appears to be trying to suggest that Levine had a regular Saturday thing at the Radisson with his drug buddies. In earlier testimony, Levine said the group would get together and party once or twice a month at the Lincolnwood hotel, and always on weekdays. Levine said he tried to hide his secret drug life from his family and wanted to be home and clear-headed on the weekends.”

“And Judge St. Eve would not allow Levine to name names as to the identities of those present at the all-male parties involving drug use — parties attended by some of the city’s and state’s political powers-that-be as well as by those wanting favors.”

Obama Occidental full scholarship facts and conclusions, Obama scholarship not merit or athletics, Obama was Kenyan in 1979, International student scholarship?

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“I spent the last two years of high school in a daze, locking away the questions that life seemed insistent on imposing. I kept playing basketball, attended classed sparingly, drank beer heavily, and tried drugs enthusiastically.”…Barack Obama

“Our Aug. 29, 2008, Ask FactCheck item asking whether Obama has Kenyan citizenship correctly stated that Obama did have dual citizenship as a child but that it expired as an adult. But Leo Donofrio, a lawyer, argues that we got the year wrong. He’s right about that, and we have corrected the item.

Initially, we said that Obama’s citizenship expired in 1982, on Obama’s 21st birthday. In fact, however, the Kenyan Constitution provides a two-year window during which one can decide which citizenship to keep. So, President Obama’s Kenyan citizenship expired on Aug. 4, 1984, not 1982, as we had initially reported.”…FactCheck.org

We still do not know where Barack Obama was born. Obama has not presented a copy of an original certified birth certificate. Obama will never be a natural
born citizen, a US citizen with 2 US citizen parents. Obama at some point became a US citizen. We do not yet know when that occurred.

Here is what we do know. The following is not conjecture or my opinion. The following are facts.

Fact: Obama was a citizen of Kenya at birth due to his father’s Kenyan Citizenship.

Question: Was Obama also a citizen of the US at birth? We still do not have an answer.

Fact: Barack Obama is a Kenyan name.

Fact: Obama was a citizen of Kenya his entire tenure at Occidental.

Fact: Occidental listed him as Barack Obama. Some students called him Barry.

From Snopes.

“Barack Obama attended Occidental College in California for two years as an undergraduate from 1979-81 under the name Obama, not Soetoro (the latter is the surname of his Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro):

Jim Tranquada, Occidental’s Director of Communications, said: “Contemporary public documents, such as the freshman ‘Lookbook’ [a guide distributed to
incoming freshman] published at the beginning of President Obama’s first year at Occidental, list him as Barack Obama. All of the Occidental alumni I have
spoken to from that era (1979-81) who knew him, knew him as Barry Obama.””

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/occidental.asp

Fact: Obama attended Occidental on a full scholarship.

From the LA Times January 29, 2007.

“U.S. Sen. Barack Obama is usually described as an alumnus of Columbia University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, and of Harvard Law School.

But the Illinois Democrat began his undergraduate education at Occidental, and the 1,825-student liberal arts college in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los
Angeles isn’t shy about claiming him as an alumnus for his two years there (1979-81) on full scholarship.”

http://articles.latimes.com/2007/jan/29/local/me-oxy29

Fact: The Scholarship was not based on academics.

In Obama’s own words.

“I spent the last two years of high school in a daze, locking away the questions that life seemed insistent on imposing. I kept playing basketball, attended
classed sparingly, drank beer heavily, and tried drugs enthusiastically. I discovered that it didn’t make any difference if you smoked reefer in the white
class mates sparkling new van, or in the dorm room with some brother you’d met down at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had
dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl.”…Barack Obama, Dreams from my father

Fact: The Scholarship was not based on athletics.

From the LA Times November 10, 2008.

“What his fellow ballers don’t seem to recall, however, is whether Obama played for the Tigers in a more formal capacity, as a former coach insists and the
media have reported, and no tangible proof seems to exist that he did.

No photos showing the skinny teenager in short shorts.

No roster.

No box score.

No score book.

No mention in the school paper.

Nothing has been found, school spokesman Jim Tranquada says.”

http://articles.latimes.com/2008/nov/10/sports/sp-crowe10

Fact: This leaves a scholarship based on need, one from an outside source or an International Student Scholarship. It seems unlikely that Obama would receive
a full scholarship based on need with his high school performance and subsequent Occidental performance.

From the Occidental site.

“Need-Based Scholarships

Need-based scholarships differ from merit scholarships, as they are not linked to academic promise, but rather to the family’s financial situation. Your
need-based scholarship is re-determined each year by the information you provide on your annual financial aid application. These awards are not guaranteed year-to-year.

Occidental College need-based scholarships require you to:

demonstrate financial need be enrolled at least half-time (6+ units)
make satisfactory academic progress
Need-based scholarships are provided through the generosity of individual donors, private corporations and agencies, alumni gifts, and other resources from the College.”

http://www.oxy.edu/financial-aid/financial-aid-awards/scholarships

Fact: Occidental currently provides full scholarships to International Students.

“Financial Aid for International Students

Financial aid and scholarships are available for a limited number of international students. Needbased aid amounts vary according to each student’s
financial situation, but may cover up to the full cost of an Occidental education. Scholarships are awarded according to both merit and financial need, and
are given to those students who have demonstrated a balance of outstanding academic achievement and extra-curricular engagement throughout high school.”

http://issuu.com/occidentalcollege/docs/oxy_international_brochure

Fact: Obama’s father, Barack Obama, Sr. received several scholarships to study in the US. However, Barack Sr. was considered a serious student.

Conclusion: Obama was able to obtain a full scholarship despite a lackluster performance in high school and Occidental. Perhaps the standards for
International Students were lower then. Perhaps Obama had a benefactor.

Obama has kept his records hidden. There is a reason.

But remember, Obama was a citizen of Kenya then.

Regardless of whether or not Obama was also technically a US citizen then, did he acknowledge it?

That is a good question.

Does Bill Ayers mom’s remark provide the answer?

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“We have just gone through one of the most secretive administrations in our history, and not releasing, I think, these records at the same time, Hillary, as you’re making the claim that this is the basis for your experience, I think, is a problem.”…Barack Obama October 30, 2007

“We were both scholarship students,”Bill Snider, Obama Occidental classmate

When I first received notification about the alleged AP story about Occidental College releasing Obama’s transcipts, as I always do, I checked it out and found no reference to it with the Associated Press. I believe it was a clever diversion.

The question is, who created it.

The Obama camp is masterful at diversions and preemptively disarming controversies such as Obama’s drug use.

I believe this to be another example of attempting to disarm a story.

It is not going to work. The search for the truth will continue.

Here is some background on the controversy.

From Politico November 11, 2007.

“Obama records requests prove fruitless”

“On Friday, Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that she had asked Obama at a news conference: “Do your state senate papers still exist? If they do, just where are they? And would you ever intend to make them public to be responsive to some requests?”

Sweet wrote that he replied: “Nobody has requested specific documents.”

But the Chicago Tribune has reported that it “requested documents from his time in Springfield and never received a response.”

And Sweet wrote of her own paper, “The Chicago Sun-Times has also been asking about Obama’s papers.”

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1107/6821.html

As Obama began gaining in stature as a possible Democrat nominee, more questions were being asked about his past. Obama continued avoiding proving where he was born and providing records about his college years. He also minimized his contact with Tony Rezko, which was proven to be a lie during the Rezko Trial.

On August 21, 2008, attorney Phillip J. Berg filed a lawsuit requesting proof of Obama’s eligibility for the presidency and for copies of Obama’s records.

In Berg’s Motion for Expedited Discovery he requests:

“Any and all college applications and records, including but not
limited to Occidental College, Harvard College, Harvard Law
School, University of Chicago, Columbia and any other colleges
which Defendant Obama applied at;”

From the New American December 2, 2008.

“This story has gained credence, separating it from Internet rumors, because Obama has reputedly hired three law firms (firms, not lawyers) to make sure that
no one gets access to his birth records in Hawaii or his college transcripts from Occidental College and Harvard. (It is speculated that the transcripts will
show he applied for aid to foreign students.)”

“Alan Keyes, a presidential candidate of the American Independent Party, and Markham Robinson, a California elector, have now sued to see Obama’s birth
certificate (these men would definitely have legal “standing” to sue as plaintiffs in this case).”

Obama’s attorney.

The Fake AP article was dated April 1, 2009.

Snopes correctly debunks the article email as not originating from the AP and provides the following info.

“Barack Obama attended Occidental College in California for two years as an undergraduate from 1979-81 under the name Obama, not Soetoro (the latter is the surname of his Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro):

Jim Tranquada, Occidental’s Director of Communications, said: “Contemporary public documents, such as the freshman ‘Lookbook’ [a guide distributed to incoming freshman] published at the beginning of President Obama’s first year at Occidental, list him as Barack Obama. All of the Occidental alumni I have spoken to from that era (1979-81) who knew him, knew him as Barry Obama.””

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/occidental.asp

FactCheck.org provided a very misleading if not false statement.

“Claim #15, foreign student aid. The claim that Obama got “foreign student aid” is untrue. That wild falsehood began as an absurd April Fools’ Day hoax in
2009, which we quickly exposed.”

http://factcheck.org/2012/07/obamas-sealed-records/

Wrong! Since FactCheck.org nor anyone else that I am aware of has seen Obama’s Occidental Transcripts, we do not know if he received foreign student aid. We only know that the alleged AP article was faked and that Obama continues to hide his records.

To this date Obama has used private attorneys such as Fredric Woocher and Robert Bauer to keep his records hidden.

More damning for Obama is that he has also used US Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to keep his records hidden.

Here is a list of some of the US Justice Department attorneys who have assisted Obama in keeping his records hidden. Their representation of Obama is a matter of public record. This list does not include the support staffs.

Many of the references to Obama’s birthplace leading up to 2008 stated that Obama was born in Kenya.

And recently we learned. 

“Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet, which was distributed to “business colleagues” in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.”

“Everyone called him Barry,”…Bill Snider, Obama Occidental classmate

“We were both scholarship students,”Bill Snider, Obama Occidental classmate

I did not report the following story from the Greensboro News Record when it first appeared. I had no confirmation and it was not the right time.

I now have confirmation from a highly reliable, knowledgeable source. I was not asked to keep the information confidential, but I will do so to protect an innocent party. I did not request the info, it fell into my lap. God moves in mysterious ways.

It is time to report this.

From the Greensboro News Record April 19, 2010.

“Downtown baker knew Obama way back when”

“Bill Snider bucked other classmates by calling him “Barack.”

“Everyone called him Barry,” Snider says. “I didn’t. I loved the name Barack.”

Thirty years ago, Snider, who now owns Simple Kneads Bakery here, shared the proverbial battered collegiate sofa with Obama and others at Occidental College in Los Angeles.

The sofa was in the basement of Haines Hall next to Obama’s dorm room. Snider and other students who lived off campus hung out in the basement between classes.

Obama often joined them.

“We talked about music and politics,” Snider says, as well as a demand by Occidental students that the college divest its investments in South Africa.

“A big movement was under way for (Ted) Kennedy,” he says. “I personally supported John Anderson. Actually, my freshman year, I was a college Republican.”

Nevertheless, he had a lot in common with Obama.

“We were both scholarship students,” says Snider, an Ohio native. “We came a great distance to Occidental. Neither of us had a father. My father died when I was 6. We were both broke.”

Snider says the Obama he sees on television seems like the same deliberate — and politically moderate — guy who at Occidental always thought through decisions about his studies and his life.

“His smile was remarkable in college,” Snider says. “It was eerie during the 2006 campaign to cut on the TV and see that smile. He looked the same except a little gray. He was still skinny and youthful-looking.”

It was also eerie when Snider, once so close to Obama at Haines Hall, stood behind his bakery in an alley off South Elm Street.

From there, he could see the crowd gathered around Obama for a rally at The Depot.

This was as close Snider has come to Obama since college, and he doubts if Obama knows his whereabouts.

Snider now views himself as a political independent. But anyone entering Simple Kneads during the 2008 campaign knew where he stood.

He didn’t worry about offending some customers by displaying Obama stickers. His now-14-year-old daughter, Roxanne, campaigned for Obama.

After his sophomore year at Occidental in 1981, Obama transferred across the continent to Columbia University and later went to Harvard law school.

Even though Occidental ranks high academically, Snider says Obama felt he was having too much fun. Obama believed he’d face fewer distractions at Columbia.

Snider replies with an emphatic “no” when asked whether Obama, while a student at Occidental, was already thinking of running for president someday.

When he did run and win, “I think he was pretty shocked himself,” Snider says.

After graduating from Occidental, Snider earned a master’s in journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill.

The following statements from above are highly relevant.

“Everyone called him Barry,”

“We were both scholarship students,”

“Snider says Obama felt he was having too much fun. Obama believed he’d face fewer distractions at Columbia.”

“Obama’s College Classmate: “The Obama Scandal is at Columbia””

“I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right. Obama has a secret hidden at Columbia- and it’s a bad one that threatens to bring down his Presidency. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia.

Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best its ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask your lapdog Senator Harry Reid to chase the Frisbee. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader is now making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.

This is classic Axelrod. Obama has won several elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents.

By attacking Romney’s tax records, Obama’s socialist cabal creates a problem that doesn’t exist. Is the U.S. Senate Majority Leader making up stories out of thin air? You decide. But the reason for this baseless attack is clear- make Romney defend, so not only is he “off message” but it helps the media ignore the real Obama scandal.

But I have the answer for Romney. A challenge that shuts up Obama forever.

It’s time to call Obama’s bluff. Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago, that you are afraid to let America’s voters see it? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.

My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records- never…EVER. Because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again. End of story.

But why are the college records, of a 51 year old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.

If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s 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 I’d 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 has ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.

But don’t 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.

Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging for Obama’s dirt with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s?

The first question I’d ask is, if you had great grades, why would you seal your records? So let’s assume Obama got poor grades. Why not release the records? He’s President of the free world, for gosh sakes. He’s commander-in-chief of the U.S. military. Who’d care about some poor grades from three decades ago, right? So then what’s the problem? Doesn’t that make the media suspicious? Something doesn’t add up.

Secondly, if he had poor grades at Occidental, how did he get admitted to an Ivy League university in the first place? And if his grades at Columbia were awful, how’d he ever get into Harvard Law School? So again those grades must have been great, right? So why spend millions to keep them sealed?

Third, how did a poor kid pay for all these fancy schools? If he had student loans or scholarships, don’t American students need good grades to maintain student loans?

I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery.

So here’s my gut. I believe Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. Did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? I’m betting not. He was abandoned by his mother and sent back to Hawaii to live with his grandparents. No one was paying much attention to young Obama, so his citizenship was never changed back. But suddenly as he nears college-age Obama learns that foreign students have a much easier path being admitted to U.S. universities. And even more amazingly, they get loads of aid and scholarships to attend college for free- something unavailable to U.S. citizens.

So a plan is hatched. Obama uses his Indonesian passport and citizenship to get into college. Suddenly even Ivy League Columbia University is a possibility- for a foreign student from Indonesia. And it’s all paid for by the taxpayers.

That would explain how a poor student who rarely attended class and got mediocre grades, and with no money, was able to get accepted and pay for Occidental, Columbia and Harvard Law. The door magically opened for a foreign student with an exotic background.”

As stated above, I will not divulge the identity of the person confirming Bill Snider’s story. I have received too many death threats and have watched others attacked for asking simple questions about Obama.

I hereby swear that the information I have provided is true to the best of my ability and knowledge.

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“At this time, the current major issue is the Solomon Bill, the latest legislation from Congress to obtain compliance to registration. The law requires that
all male students applying for federal financial aid submit proof of registration, or else the government coffers will close. Yale, Wesleyan, and Swathmore
have refused to comply, and plan to offer non-registrants other forms of financial aid. SAM hopes to press Columbia into following suit, though so far
President Sovern and company seem prepared to acquiesce to the bill.”

“Several students have come up to our tables and said that had they known of the ineffectiveness of prosecution, they would not have registered.”…1983 Columbia University article by Barack Obama

From WND June 21, 2012.
“ELECTIONS CHIEF: OBAMA ‘FIBBING’ ABOUT KENYA BIRTH”

“The chief elections officer in the state of Arizona, who ignited a firestorm of outraged Democrat reaction when he answered a hypothetical question regarding Barack Obama and the 2012 presidential election ballot, has told a meeting of Republicans that he believes Obama might have lied about his birth being in Kenya in order to gain status in the American college system.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recently addressed a meeting of state Republicans and discussed the heat that was generated when he responded to a hypothetical question that Obama could be kept off the 2012 election ballot if his claim of a birth in Hawaii could not be verified.

He joked about touching the “third rail” with the comment.

Bennett formally inquired of Hawaii for verification of Obama’s birth records there, and when he received a statement from state officials announced his inquiry was closed.

In the address, he said he believes Obama was born in Hawaii, but suggested that all is not truthful and straightforward in the Obama camp.

“I actually think he was fibbing about being born in Kenya when he was trying to get into college,” Bennett said.

Obama entered higher education in the U.S. at Occidental College. He later was at Columbia and Harvard. It was the Occidental records that were subpoenaed during one of the multitude of court challenges to his occupancy of the Oval Office, and Obama promptly dispatched his attorneys to shut down the effort to see his documentation.

At issue is his status as a “natural born citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution. Some allege he wasn’t born in Hawaii as he says, so he wouldn’t hold that special status. Others allege it makes no difference, as the Founders would have required two citizen parents for their offspring to be a “natural born citizen” and Obama’s father was never more than a Kenyan student studying in America.

There are numerous challenges that have developed now trying to keep Obama’s name off the 2012 presidential election ballot on the grounds that he is not, in fact qualified as a “natural born citizen.”

Bennett said in his opinion the case is “closed” but he realizes other people remain skeptical.

“As to whether the president was born in Hawaii, personally I believe he was,” he said. “I actually think he was fibbing about being born in Kenya when he was trying to get into college.”

He noted “weird stuff” that happened back in those days, including a biography by a potential book publisher that specifically cited Obama’s Kenyan birth.

“I think he has spent $1.5 to $2 million through attorneys to have all the college records and all that stuff sealed,” Bennett said. “So if you’re spending money to seal something, that’s probably where the hanky panky was going on.””

From CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) May 18, 2012.
“Not only are there pre-2007 U.S. accounts that Obama was born in Kenya, but pre-2007 African newspaper accounts too. Are newspapers on two continents published over many, many years all wrong? Common sense tells us that Obama is a fraud:

http://www.scribd.com/collections/3248475

College admission records will likely show he attended as a foreign born student. That is why Obama is hiding his college records. Obama likely never registered for the draft since he was a foreign student and did not have to. Thus the need in 2008 to forge and back date a draft registration card. Hawaiian laws allowed children born abroad to a Hawaiian citizen to be registered as born in Hawaii. Obama could have been physically born in Kenya and yet registered by the maternal grandmother in Hawaii as born there which would trigger the standardized newspaper birth registration accounts in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961. With no Hawaiian hospital generated birth registration documents, or other contemporaneous records of his physical place of birth except in Kenya, there was the need to forge the short-form birth document in June 2008 and the long-form birth certificate PDF file put on the White House servers in April 2011 to backup his concocted life narrative.

Was Obama lying about his physical place of birth then or is he lying now? Either way he’s a liar. He’s also a felony draft registration evader, government document forger, and identity thief using someone else’s CT Social Security Number.”
