Elder Patriot – As the mainstream media anxiously reports one untruth after another stemming from “leaks” that emanate from the team of presidential assassins assembled by Robert Mueller at the behest of Congressional Democrats in order to save their corrupt criminal syndicate that’s been more than a half-century in the making, the question arises that should concern every American; Why didn’t the media show that same level of interest in determining the level of integrity of former President Barack Obama’?
The MSM is so ravenously intent on discrediting President Trump that they have taken to attacking the veracity of everyone surrounding him. It’s gotten so bad that just a couple of weeks ago they went after his press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, questioning whether she actually baked the Thanksgiving pie she claimed she did.
Specifically, I am focusing on the growing evidence that the media deliberately avoided exploring Obama’s claims of academic excellence at Columbia and Harvard Law.
For proof that the media was at least inconsistent in their kid gloves treatment of Obama we need look no further than the man who was his vice president.
According to Alan R. Lockwood:
“During his 1987 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, Biden falsely claimed that he had “graduated with three degrees from college” (he had one degree), was “the outstanding student in the political science department” (he was in the bottom 26% of his class), had gone to law school “on a full academic scholarship” (he had no academic scholarship), and had graduated in the top half of his law school class (he was in the bottom 12%). Biden self-contradictorily defended himself by saying, “I’ve never gone around telling people things that aren’t true about me.” At the time, Johnny Carson joked that Biden had violated the first rule of politics: always lie about the future, but never the past.”
The discrepancies between Biden’s public statements and academic records led to his withdrawal from the race, proving that academic records can be relevant and material to a presidential campaign. Biden withdrew not because his transcripts revealed his poor grades in the 1960s, but because his transcripts revealed his poor truthfulness in 1987. As Biden said in August 2008, after Obama selected him to be Obama’s running mate, “Campaigns for presidents [sic] are a test of character and leadership.” In 1987, Biden flunked his own test.
This all becomes relevant today because of the media’s deep search into which hand the current president wipes his ass with and the way they essentially used their platform to shout down any legitimate inquiry into their “Chosen One,” Barack Obama.
During a 2011 interview with David Maraniss Obama opened the door to an inquiry into his claims of academic success at both Columbia and Harvard Law but the media closed it rather than barge through as they have done with everything Donald Trump has said.
The former liar-in-chief told Maraniss that his G.P.A. at Columbia was 3.7 when there is at least some evidence suggesting that Obama never even attended Columbia. The media never bothered to investigate probably because they were instructed not to. But the questions won’t die:
- 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.
There are other questions of simple logic raised by Columbia classmate, Class of ’83, Wayne Allyn Root:
“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 have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.”
Root’s inability to place Obama at Columbia led him to question Obama’s refusal to release his transcripts.
“Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret?
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 Obama pay for all these fancy schools without coming from a wealthy background? If he had student loans or scholarships, would he not have to maintain good grades?
I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery.
Here’s my gut belief: 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. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.
If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:
A) He rarely ever attended class.
B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.
C) He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.
