Is Obama The World’s Biggest Birther?
October 17, 2013 by Wayne Allyn Root
Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Many Americans suspect Barack Obama was foreign-born. They have every right to ask the questions about the most powerful and mysterious man in the world, but I believe they have the story wrong. They are on the wrong path to unsealing the mystery of Obama’s background.
But the Obama defenders are equally wrong. They rudely label Obama’s critics as “birthers.” Interestingly, the person most responsible for spreading this birth rumor is Obama himself. So in reality, Obama is the world’s biggest “birther.” I was Obama’s classmate at Columbia University. And, boy, do I have a story to tell you.
I believe Obama is a fraud. But it has nothing to do with his birth. Obama’s critics have it all backward. 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. So because of his own fraudulent actions, Obama is actually the one to blame for starting all of this conspiracy talk.
Months ago, MSNBC television host Rachel Maddow spent 15 minutes on her national show calling me a “birther.” I scratched my head, because I’m not — never have been, not for one minute. A “birther” believes Obama is a foreigner, not legally qualified to be President. I have never believed that.
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 Barnum, too. While Obama is no foreigner, he is a fraud. Let me tell you the real Obama 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.
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.
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.
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 is punishable by years in prison.
It doesn’t take a psychology degree to figure out Obama’s fragile mindset as a young man. He spent his youth living a fantasy, wanting desperately to be foreign-born and exotic, instead of just a normal American kid from a struggling single-parent household. As a black teen with no dad, Obama undoubtedly faced racism and tough times. With help from mentors like Frank Marshall Davis, a communist, and Bill Ayers, a terrorist, he learned to despise his country of birth (America). As a dreamer and loner, he started to believe his own story of exotic birth, then he used that fantasy (aka fraud) to gain admittance to both Occidental and Columbia.
In too deep, he had no way out. Ironically, that makes Obama himself the “birther.” He’s the one who created the foreign-born storyline. By calling himself a foreigner, he became the birther.
The fact the leftist media (Maddow, Jon Stewart, Mother Jones and others) are so frightened of me confirms that I’m close to the truth. It explains why Obama sent the Internal Revenue Service to viciously attack me not once, but twice. (I won 100 percent victories in both audits.) I’ve gotten too close to both the Obama Columbia scandal and the Obama IRS scandal. The closer to the target, the greater the flack.
So let me explain why Obama needed to concoct a fraudulent story to get into Columbia. Getting into an Ivy League University is extremely difficult and transferring in is virtually impossible. Every year, 30,000 kids try to get into a college like Columbia. Only a small fraction are accepted (there were about 700 in our class of 1983). The battle is cutthroat. Virtually all 30,000 are straight-A students, have close-to-perfect SAT scores, and have achieved outsized success at extracurricular activities, too.
Into that dog-eat-dog competition stepped Obama, a young man with no achievements, except an exotic story of Indonesian upbringing. Obama could never have gotten into Columbia out of high school, and his odds of transferring in later were even worse. Last year, Columbia accepted only three transfer students in the entire world. Three. And I guarantee you all three had amazing scholastic and achievement records from other Ivy League colleges like Harvard, Yale or Princeton.
Obama had none of that. By his own admission, he was a poor student who smoked pot, rarely attended class and got mediocre grades from Occidental (a good, but not great, college). His only chance of transferring into Columbia was a made-up story of being an exotic foreigner.
It’s pretty clear how Obama got into Columbia; I believe it was by lying. Obama was a smart kid, even then gave “great interview,” and talked (lied) his way into Columbia as an Indonesian student, using his Jakarta grade school transcripts (and perhaps passport/citizenship papers) as proof. Columbia probably asked very few questions. They were thrilled to have an Indonesian student to brag about. They got what they wanted: “diversity.”
That was Obama’s edge that gained him admittance to the exclusive Ivy League world at Columbia and then Harvard Law School. But that also made him a fraud, who accepted admittance and foreign student aid under false pretenses.
Since selling this fraudulent story had succeeded beyond his wildest imagination, Obama was emboldened. So he used it again to sell a book. Remember: I’m not guessing here. It’s a fact that his book agent described Obama to publishers as “born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia.” There is physical proof of these exact words. Bleeding-heart-liberal Manhattan book publishers bought it hook, line and sinker.
All of this lying and fraud based on a fantasy built an impressive platform for young Obama. It got him the credentials he needed for a career in politics (Columbia, Harvard Law, professor at Chicago Law School). Next, he used that platform to run for office. He won and then won again, becoming a U.S. Senator. People started touting him as a Presidential candidate. All the lies and Barnum-like self-promotion had worked for Obama, too well. Now, he had a deep, dark secret to cover up.
His college records were his Achilles heel. He had to hide his tracks. His college records had to be sealed forever — not because he was a foreigner and unqualified to be President, but because he was an American posing as a foreigner. That makes him a fraud unqualified to be President. Keep in mind he almost certainly would have accepted foreign aid loans or scholarships. That is a crime.
And this story is important for another reason. It tells us everything about the man in the White House who created and sold a pack of lies called Obamacare. He promised it would lower our health insurance costs. Lie. They are up dramatically and set to skyrocket even more next year. He promised we could keep our present insurance. Lie. Millions of Americans are losing their insurance or, worse, their jobs. He promised our quality of care would not be affected. We’re adding 30 million to 40 million new patients, but no new doctors. The waits for care will be shocking. Another lie.
Polls prove 70 percent of all doctors are thinking of retiring. We’ll all be treated by foreign doctors with shaky English and untrustworthy degrees from the University of Grenada. Quality of care will plummet. So there’s another lie. And Obama said there are no “death panels.” Another lie. Healthcare will have to be rationed. Many Americans will either have the most effective treatments denied because of cost or they will die waiting in long lines for treatment. So there’s a lie that could cost you your life.
It all makes sense that Obamacare is one big lie. The man pitching it is a born liar. He made up fantasy stories, delusions, exaggerations, half-truths, cons and misrepresentations his whole life. He did it with ease — to get into college, to get into law school, to get his first book deal and to win political office. His whole life is about a web of fraud and deceit. We’ve been sold down the river by a con man in the White House.
I would love for Obama to release his college records and prove me wrong. But of course he won’t. He can’t, because at the top of his college admissions transcript would be the two words that would destroy his Presidency and legacy: “foreign student.”
No, I’m not a birther. I believe Obama is 100 percent American-born. While never questioning his birth, I’ve been in the media nonstop for five years questioning his allegiance to America, American exceptionalism and Judeo-Christian values.
And I’ve exposed his plan, created by husband-and-wife professors Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven at Columbia, to destroy capitalism by overwhelming the system with spending, debt and entitlements. That purposeful plan is proven by facts; please see record spending, record debt and record entitlements under Obama. This whole giant scandal wrapped in mystery is really about a plan to destroy America carried out by an American who always despised America, American values and capitalism and who posed as a foreigner.
No, Obama isn’t foreign-born, but I believe he is a fraud. And if so, it’s Obama who is the world’s biggest birther. Isn’t real life stranger than fiction? I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. Right back here. Same time, same place. God bless America and protect us from the fraud in the White House.
