I was taking some much-needed time away from blogging, given this current Obamacare government selective shutdown debt ceiling news madness. All of which provides yet another diversion for the Press Corps to use in directing our attention away from the 9/11/12 Benghazi massacre – and what really happened during those nine hours in the White House Situation Room. But I digress.
I made the mistake of checking my Facebook account for personal messages. My well-informed and beloved sister-in-law, Ronnie, had aimed an update my way. I opened it. Of course, I shouldn’t have ventured there. I became angry. So here we are again:
Glenn Beck, who has repeatedly and mercilessly trashed people who question (a) where Barack Obama was really born and (b) whether is he Constitutionally eligible to hold his office, now gives us Columbia University graduate (and supposed Obama classmate) Wayne Allen Root. Here are some excerpts (with bold emphasis mine) from Root’s latest foray, writing in Beck’s online paper The Blaze:
Many Americans suspect Obama was foreign born. They are wrong. Boy do I have a story to tell you.
I’ll bet you do, Wayne. Please. Do tell.
I believe Obama is a fraud. But it has nothing to do with his birth. Obama’s critics have it all backwards. They are looking in the wrong place. He isn’t a foreigner portraying himself as an American. He’s an American who fraudulently portrayed himself as a foreigner.
And this is news? How do you know all of that to be true, Wayne?
I’ve always believed that Obama is 100 percent American. There I’ve said it loudly. I’m a leading critic of the President, but I’ve always believed him to be American born. He is as American as P.T. Barnum. And he lies and exaggerates like P.T. Barnum too. While Obama is not a foreigner, he is a fraud. Let me tell you the REAL Obama story.
Ah, I see. You’ve always believed he’s a natural born American. And that makes it so? Pray, tell the the REAL story.
In hundreds of media interviews, I’ve stated that even though Obama was my college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983, and we shared the same majors (Political Science and Pre-Law), I never saw, met, or heard of him. But the media has this story wrong too – I’ve never said that my conclusion is Obama did not go to Columbia. On the contrary, I believe Obama graduated Columbia and we are classmates.
There are the two magical words again – I believe.
Where was he hiding for those Columbia years? My educated guess is he was smoking pot and attending communist meetings, plotting the downfall of America and capitalism. Don’t laugh, it worked!
While that was just an educated guess, Obama’s own autobiography backs me up – he personally admitted often attending Socialist Party meetings at Cooper Union in downtown Manhattan. With Obama, even your wildest guesses are often proven true.
More speculation, albeit educated speculation. Granted, Mr. Root is an educated man. He’s entitled to his wildest guesses, too.
But forget why he wasn’t seen at Columbia, the real mystery is how he ever got into Columbia. Stay with me – because this ties into the whole “foreign born” story.
Wait. I thought he wasn’t foreign born. But, I’ll stay with you some more, Wayne.
I’ve believe I’ve pieced together what happened at Columbia and here it is. I believe that Obama, an American citizen, committed fraud by portraying himself as a foreigner, in order to gain almost impossible admittance to prestigious Columbia University (and probably Occidental and Harvard Law School as well). He lied and used fraud (misrepresentation) to weasel his way in. Is that really a crime? Ask convicted criminal Frank Abagnale, the real-life star of the hit movie and best-selling book, “Catch Me if You Can.” Portraying someone you’re not is called fraud, and punishable by years in prison.
A cop presenting an arrest affidavit with multiple “I believes” or “educated guesses” he expects to be used as bases for credible legal conclusions would soon find himself escorted out the door of any reputable district attorney’s office.
It doesn’t take a psychology degree to figure out Obama’s fragile mindset as a young man…
Good. I’m not a psychologist and I’m not interested in becoming one. You can read the whole piece for Root’s protracted speculative analysis of Obama’s fragile mindset as a youg man – and how Root believes Obama got himself into Columbia University – if you like.
By the way, Root conveniently skipped, omitted, evaded, any mention of the hardcore forensic evidence presented by the Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff’s Office, which demonstrates pretty convincingly that Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a computer-generated forgery – and that his Selective Service registration form is also fraudulent. I’m sure that rather glaring omission met with Glenn Beck’s approval.
The hard fact is that, despite what he believes to be true, Wayne Allen Root has no credible knowlege as to whether Barack Hussein Obama is a foreign national or a natural born American citizen.
Neither do I. I don’t know who this man Obama really is.
All of the Obama historical/educational records are sealed, at his considerable legal expense. And until a thorough Congressional investigation is completed, including a competent forensic examination of the original sealed-by-Court-order documents, none of us will ever know the truth.
Meanwhile, Mr. Root can continue guessing at and believing what he chooses.
