Skip to comments.Professor From Columbia Comes Forward Saying Obama Never Attended the University
Posted on 06/09/2013 9:01:51 AM PDT by ScaniaBoy
My life has crossed paths with President Obama on multiple occasions. According to Obama, we were Columbia University classmates, both Pre Law and Political Science majors in the Class of 83. I also ran against Obama in 2008 on the Libertarian Party Presidential ticket. What are the odds?
But something about the Obama at Columbia story has always bothered me. Earlier in the week right here at The Blaze I wrote about having just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual- he wasnt there. Not a trace. Not a video greeting. Not a letter. I could not find any classmates who knew him.
I called Obama the Ghost of Columbia University. I pointed out (as Ive said in the media for many years now) that Obama may have been registered at Columbia, may have graduated from Columbia, but he was rarely (if ever) seen for the two years in-between. Its a strange, mysterious and frightening story.
Is he the real-life Manchurian Candidate? What explains Obama having just enough skeletal proof that he was there (one photo, one roommate, one professor, one friend) but never seen in a class, never on anyones radar screen, almost invisible. A total 2-year blackout. Its like a story straight out of a novel about the CIA or KGB. He graduated Columbia, but its almost as if he never went there.
To make matters more mysterious, Obamas college records are sealed. Hes had plenty of opportunities to authorize the release, to clear the air. He has never chosen to do so. But why? What has he got to hide? Funny enough Obama has never had a problem ripping open the sealed records of his political opponents. Every step of his career Obama has beaten his opponents by having sealed documents just happen to be publicly exposed by anonymous sources. But not Obama. His records are always unavailable (and never leaked). Obama always seems to have powerful forces on his side.
Did he attend Columbia as a foreign student? That was the educated guess I made in my appearance on Hannity on Fox News a year ago. The only photo of Obama from his Columbia days was in his off-campus apartment with a roommate described by USA Today as a Pakistani national, pot smoker, and cocaine abuser. If youre a foreign student, you live in housing off-campus with other foreign students.
That would also explain how he transferred to Columbia. Transferring into an Ivy League school is all but impossible. I did a little digging and found out only 3 transfer students in all of America were accepted into Columbia in the past academic year. Three students out of 315 million Americans. Yet those who knew Obama at Occidental called him a pot smoker and partier who rarely attended class. Youre telling me that a poor student, with that record, at an average college, was accepted for transfer into prestigious Columbia University? Only if he was an exotic Indonesian foreign student transferring into a college that desperately wanted to claim an ethnically and globally diverse student body.
Still that might explain how Obama got into Columbia. But where was he for those two years? My gut instincts say something is wrong with the Obama at Columbia story. Very wrong. Rancid.
But until now, I was the only one publicly voicing my suspicions. That just changed in a big way. Meet Professor Henry Graff, perhaps the most legendary and honored professor ever at Columbia University. He was THE American History and Diplomatic History professor at Columbia for 46 years. And he is more emphatic than yours truly that there are no Obama footprints at Columbia.
I was put on Professor Graffs trail by another Columbia classmate, skeptical about Obamas story. He told me that Professor Graff had been the speaker for the Class of 53 last weekend at Columbia. My friend was watching Graff answer questions from the crowd when he was asked about Obama at Columbia. Graff said, I have my doubts he ever went here.
I did some digging and located Graffs home phone number. I called him yesterday. Now retired, he was delighted to hear from me. He agreed to go on the record about Obama. Unlike Obama, Professor Graff clearly remembered me. He was thrilled to hear from his former student. I was in several of Graffs classes and he remembered me like it was yesterday. He sounded great- like he hasnt lost any of his trademark sharpness in 30 years since we last met.
I was honored to learn that this legendary historian has been following my political career for many years. But he had no such cheery things to say about the President. Graff said, I taught at Columbia for 46 years. I taught every significant American politician that ever studied at Columbia. I know them all. Im proud of them all. Between American History and Diplomatic History, one way or another, they all had to come through my classes. Not Obama. I never had a student with that name in any of my classes. I never met him, never saw him, never heard of him.
Even more importantly, Professor Graff knew the other history and political science professors. None of the other Columbia professors knew him either said Graff.
Graff concluded our interview by saying, Im very upset by the whole story. I am angry when I hear Obama called the first President of the United States from Columbia University. I dont consider him a Columbia student. I have no idea what he did on the Columbia campus. No one knows him.
There is something wrong with Obamas story- I know that. Many of my classmates at last weekends 30th reunion knew that. Now the most beloved Professor ever at Columbia joins us in publicly questioning the story. Obama is either the ghost of Columbia, or the perfect Manchurian candidate. But something smells rotten at Columbia.
I can’t believe that there isn’t ONE PATRIOT out there who hasn’t snagged a napkin or drinking cup from the One’s constant campaign touring...think of all the ice cream shops and burger places he has been stopping at...the ‘watchers’ must clean up really carefully after him...
don’t miss this PING
Yup. Obamanation Recich enablers do protect B. Hussein’s DNA.
I know! All that needs to be done is to file a “Freedom Of Information” Request with the IRS!
The IRS will “provide good customer service” by having their Obama”care” Unit of the IRS print out the undocumented alien DNA of Fuehrer AND Chancellor B. Hussein Obama.
A lot of mythology - some totally invented by him out of whole cloth for no reason other than self-aggrandizement, it seems.
Verrrry interesting. Thanks for the ping!
I apologize if I was not very polite; this particular point has been brought up many, many times, and 0bots use it as a way of saying “Aha! You’re wrong, Americans traveling to Pakistan was NOT prohibited, so therefore everything else you say is wrong too!”
There are countless threads on the topic of Zero’s background, some with thousands of comments, and no one can be expected to have read each and every one of them and remembered it all. I started reading them obsessively as soon as they started appearing, but no doubt I missed plenty, and as far as remembering everything - ha, I wish I could remember more, but alas...
Especially I wish I could remember how it was determined that he had not had a US passport before being Senator. About travel being “dangerous”, I used “IIRC” because I am sure that was not the official description; maybe not advised or something similar. Maybe someone else reading the thread will remember better.
I don’t want anyone to feel reluctant to ask questions or make comments on these threads; I just want more info to get out there so more people understand the enigma in the WH.
As for Sultans and Kings and Princes, there's no shortage:
I don’t present myself as any expert on this, because clearly I’m not. I only mentioned it in reference to another’s post about personal observation of Iranian students doing ghost-like collection of degrees in a way that looks similar to what the current occupant of the White House did, and how his Mohammedan connections might explain that.
Whether he was admitted entry to Pakistan on an American or other passport, I’d be interested in knowing, along with whether his entry was eased by having the name he does, or some declaration he made about his religion, regardless of it being on an American or Indonesian passport. Or?
Oh, I am very far from an expert; just have insatiable desire to know the truth and do my little bit to help it along (via my new ping list).
I remember someone who was very familiar with this topic (Zero’s visit to Pakistand) posted about it a few times - if only I could remember his name.
Sometimes I do try to throw the baby out with the bath water, and then realizing I have to run back out and grab the baby.
Exaggeration and embroidery are also part of the story, not just pure invention. That’s the problem - when bits of truth are strewn in with faleshood, with the embroidery as well, it’s much harder to discern what is what.
And you don’t know who Don is nor his and his wifes history here......far longer than yours
I get it that you are a hardbitten sort likely marooned in libtard land
But you are shooting off your mouth accusing someone who shares your view of cleaner language in the forum
Plenty better folks for you to attack over your derision of their foul opine
I do know all about it as I’ve been told by him and others how wonderful he is.
But you have not read the entire thread, obviously and so now it is YOU who do not know. He was very busy sticking his nose in where it did not belong as you are doing now, making things very difficult where I and the moderator had it under control.
So, do what he was wise enough to do; leave me alone.
Thank you for saying that. There’s too much ritualized nay-saying on these threads.
This is quite a damning story.
Especially the last paragraph: “There is something wrong with Obamas story- I know that. Many of my classmates at last weekends 30th reunion knew that. Now the most beloved Professor ever at Columbia joins us in publicly questioning the story.”
WOULD I LIE TO YOU?
Lol just quit replying ma’am
