Rush: Did Obama apply to Columbia as a foreign exchange student?

Rush read today from an article posted at The Blaze by someone who went to Columbia the same time Obama did and studied the same Pre-Law and Political Science majors that Obama did, yet he doesn’t remember Obama. And he has an shocking explanation why Obama won’t release his college records:

    It could be why he went to such extremes to hide his school records.

    • dontdrinkthecoolaid

      There are no records.

      • CalCoolidge


  • 911Infidel

    We all know that Obammy is a complete fraud. His whole life is one big fat lie. Mr Root makes yet another compelling case that just adds to the other compelling cases that show Obammy to be anything but transparent. If the Repubiks had any guts, they’d investigate Obammy to the nth degree possible and finally prove in a court of law that Barry Sotero is an enemy of the state, and a felon who should be impeached.

  • David Boyes

    to quote coach Green He – B H O is who we thot he was ….

  • I have long maintained that Barack Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, but was adopted by his mother’s second husband, Lolo Soetoro, in Indonesia as a youth and became an Indonesian citizen (named Barry Soetoro). The foreign exchange student status would fit with this history.

    • MiketheMarine

      I tend to believe Maobama’s grandmother who said she was at his birth, in KENYA.

      • warpmine

        This POS is fabricated so thooughly nobody for sure knows anything about him.
        Surname? nope.
        birthday? nope
        father? nope

      • tvlgds

        Me too!!

  • MiketheMarine

    I have a copy of his student ID from Columbia and it says Foreign Student in big letters across the bottom. Scoop, If I email it to you, will you post the picture?

    • Watchman74

      Wow, where did you get that? The guys at Breitbart would probably be real interested in something like that.

      • MiketheMarine

        Shoot me an email. I will post miine here for just a minute. You should get it from disqus and I’ll delete it here.

    • I just read it. How do you know it isn’t a photoshop? I guess it doesn’t matter since Harry Reid and the boys are throwing around lies

      • MiketheMarine

        It appears more real than that phony birth certificate and since Harry Reid’s mouth flapping, facts aren’t important. I believe that is a true picture but without a lab, it’s impossible to know for sure.

      • MaxineCA

        Hey, just use the Reid, disclaimer “I got it from a very reliable source, but don’t know if it’s true. Let Obama prove otherwise”.

        Go for it! I would love to see it.

        • pdxlady


      • WordsFailMe

        What does it matter? Post a picture of Obama with a tail and I’ll swear I’ve seen him swish it.

        I’d love to have a copy of that myself.

        Thanks Mike and Scoop!

    • Conservative_Hippie

      You’re such a tease Mike!

      • MiketheMarine

        Hahaha, click on the snopes link that Scoop posted below and you will see it. I have zero confidene in snopes are they are a near marxist family, not a company and have been proven wrong many times and always when it comes to politics in general and Maobama specifically but that is the picture.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          I agree with you that Obama’s past is a big fat question mark. I just hope America will eventually be told the truth. Let’s face it, even Barack’s biography, Barack Obama: The Story” by David Maraniss has admitted falsehoods. Who is this Man that is the leader of the Free World anyway?!

  • MaxineCA

    How else could Barry have traveled to Pakistan during the time that US citizens were not allowed to do so. If he had come here with and maintained an Indonesian passport, that would explain it.

    Which leads to to my next question. Since the US passport service is a function of the US govt, can’t someone demand all of his travel documents via a FOIA request?

    Since so many have been finally digging into this imposter, I sure hope it all unravels very soon. I’ve never been able to figure out how someone can hide (seal) SO many records.

    • MiketheMarine

      Excellent, Maxine. Great questions.

    • Freempg

      Maxine, the criminal regime is way ahead of you. Obama’s passport files were breached and probably scrubbed:

      • pdxlady

        Excellent reference! I knew about the murder, but not the rest of it in such detail. Thanks Freempg!

    • sDee

      Maxine do you remember the “scandal” during the runup to the 2008 primaries where someone “inappropriately” authorized the passport files of the candidates?

      That ended tragically, so I suspect that those are all long gone.

    • tvlgds

      and if there was nothing to hide, why is he spending millions to hide everything?

    • Conservative_Hippie

      I like the way you think!

    • free4now

      All records on all flights for that particular week are apparently missing. Also all records for all flights to/from Kenya over the period of his supposed birth are missing. In fact, I’ve never seen such a non-person in all my life. I have no idea how America could have accepted this emptiness as their ‘highness’ (double entendre intended).

      • “I have no idea how America could have accepted this emptiness as their ‘highness’ ”

        I’d say they were told to.

  • Well it’s a lot more plausible than Reid’s accusations of tax fraud.

  • Philo Beddoe

    We are seeing the commie scheme to throw the election.

    Overload people with so much information that they cannot verify. Petraus’ is just a diversionary tactic to take the heat off of Harry Reid’s lies which are to take the heat off of obamunist’s record.

    If obama releases his college files, he will do this 1-2 weeks before the election, nobody will have a chance to verify any information in time.

    The same will be true for the new voter signups. These will not be able to be verified which will tilt the election

    • Betsey_Ross

      All of this information has been on line in one form or another for over 4 years. None if it is new news. Back 4 years ago no one even bothered to verify any of this information. When some of them did they were called crazy and even the perjorative,”birthers”. The on line certificate of live birth was there for less than a month and taken down, but several people had already labled it a phony. Crickets…..

      Then Obama actually said to Joe the Plumber that he wanted to spread the wealth around. Dang! I said to myself that that should be the end of Barack Hussein Obama. But the guy won by a 5-6% majority. WTH? What is the matter with the idiots of this country? Even the older folks who don’t understand that their Medicare is being stolen away voted for the Once.

      The Natural Born Citizen clause in the Constitution is something to be considered debatable. Really? It’s very clear what is meant when you understand who the Founding Fathers were reading and being influenced by. It is obvious why it was included in the Constitution and that is to avoid the situation we have now. After reading more and more about this situation I am beginning to believe that the man
      isn’t even a citizen of this country.

      Has anyone helped We the People that could help? Not one. Not one single Congress person has stood up. Not one. Not even the Supreme Court, epsecially when they dropped the bomb on us back in June. They could have helped, but they didn’t. We have marched for 4 years. We’ve taken to the streets. We’ve even voted many Repulicans into office in 2010. We’ve gone to tea pary meetings and joined to make a difference. What do we get for our trouble? More lies, more fear, more indications that there may not even be an election in November. So inform yourselves quickly. None of this is news. Start researching because all of this has to come out. You will not have to verify what does because it is expected by people who do know.

      • sDee

        Well summarized – we live in an altered reality. There is great danger in false hope.

        No one is coming to help us. Not Romney. No one. We have to do it ourselves and keep supporting the few in DC with the courage to take the high road.

        • librtifirst

          It is truly like living in a society of people who are plugged into the matrix. (MSM) They have no idea what their own reality is. Reality is much worse, and stranger, than any Hollywood movie could depict.

          Have you seen this movie trailer:

  • BMartin1776

    The Emperor is either hiding his citizen status as suggested by Root or as I have argued his legal identity ( resulting in common identity fraud!

    For anything else to be suggested, ie birth certificate, is nothing but a smokescreen to keep eyes off his legal status!

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    doubt we will ever find the truth out about this guy. all of our assumptions about him, most likely correct. curse the msm for not vetting this guy, curse the gop for allowing this to happen.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Yep, yep, yep here we go.

  • sDee

    It looks like Romeny surrogates are going after this so there must be something. Not only is the possibility of him beig a foreign student hanging out there, but also the reality that no one has stepped forward to sya the remember him being there. Wayne Allyn Root was in the same graduating class and never heard of Obaam or Soetoro.

    The other elephant in the room is Brzezinski. A professor there and a man with more than enough power and influence to shape Soetoro into Barack Hussein Obama, fabricate the grand background, get Columbia to issue him a degree when he was finished, and slot him into Harvard.

    • Nukeman60

      People can be called ‘birthers’, ‘paranoid’, or just plain ‘racist’ about Obama, but until anyone can answer the question as to why he would spend upwards of $4 million to hide his background, the debate will continue.

      They just can’t sweep it under the rug.

  • Joe

    This man is a PHONY

    Zero is a typical Social LEECH and works the “system”

    He is a pathological LIAR – always was and always will be

    The question is – Why doesn’t the media do their job and investigate

    The answer is







  • AnarchyRules

    The truth about this guy will be known eventually, they must know that, so what is their plan? To hide the truth until when? Until it doesn’t matter? What has to happen for the truth about him to no longer be of any importance to the people or to history? The utter failure of this Presidency will be exposed and examined by future historians, if there are historians and if there is a future. GOD help the USA, those chickens that Rev. Wright talked about are circling above, but they don’t look like chickens.

    • sDee

      The historians are all very busy as we speak writing the history of Hussein Obama – The President Who Did Not Live up to the People’s Expectations. It is the same as with Wilson, FDR and Carter. Whitewash history to preserve the Big Lie. American voters would rather be told a lie than face the ugly reality that we are politically ignorant and continue to vote away our freedom and replace it with America’s demise.

      • p m

        Seen this, sdee?

        Translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper ‘Prager Zeitungon’.

        “The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

  • OT Hey Scoop did you get the interview that Varney did with Rachel from Chik-Fil-A? It was great.

  • WordsFailMe

    Why won’t John Boehner stand in the well of the House and declare that Obama is an impostor and a liar? Declare that he has a names source of information who says emphatically that Obama did not attend Columbia.

    Why John ? Too good to get your hand dirty?

    • sDee

      They are all complicit by sin of omission. I cringe to imagine what is held over the head of anyone who speaks up.

    • pdxlady

      John Boehner enjoys the position, to which he has finally ascended. way too much to rock any boats. He needs to be overthrown, er, voted out of the speakership, and replaced with either Allen West or Michele Bachmann!

  • steprock

    I read this earlier. It’s interesting, but mostly speculation.

    But if Mitt’s personal tax records are fair game, so are Obama’s college records.

    • sDee

      Yes it could well be just be Romney playing the same dirty tricks though his surrogates to stop the distractions.

      We all know the propaganda media ran with Reid’s garbage but will ignore this, so maybe it is just a signal to Axlerod.

      • steprock

        It boggles the mind that the President’s citizenship is something to battle over. I don’t care if you’re a Senator, a “birther” or a homeless man wearing a posterboard sign. WE have a right to be reassured on this matter. Your mental status or motivations have no bearing.

        Not that illegal voters have to prove anything, so why not the same with Presidents? November can’t come soon enough. Lawlessness, sDee. It’s absolute lawlessness.

  • poljunkie

    And then what happens if this is true? Believe me we ( my family) has great disdain for this guy but will he just walk away? Would Biden step up, and Boehner take over as VP?


    • poljunkie

      Of course we’re going to win in Nov so this is a non issue-
      But not knowing —-off the top has the line of succession ever been in play with both parties?

      • Nukeman60

        I also believe we are going to win in November. But there’s more to this than meets the eye. The left and the Media (sorry, I repeat myself) need to be brought out in their complicity on this issue. Obama is a fraud, many of us know he’s a fraud, but the general population isn’t so sure.

        If all the details were to come out, this would destroy the credibility of the Lame Stream Media once and for all and would set the liberals back so far that my granddaughter wouldn’t know what a liberal was by the time she became old enough to vote.

        Not to mention, it would please me to no end, lol.

        • poljunkie

          I am with you Nukeman.
          The ongoing court case/lawsuits would be amusing, seeing them all squirm- and would make Watergate look like someone took candy from a baby.

    • GJPinks

      There is not enough time to do anything between now and the election. HOWEVER, just as if I were to steal your identity and sell your house and any investments, it would be fraud and (eventually) put right, Everything Obama did should and could be declared null and void. It would be a disaster for the Democrats. Obama Care, GM All gone.

  • Why is this news now? Root has been saying this for years. I have little doubt he attended college as a foreign student and most likely received financial benefit as such. He was probably plugged in with the foreign students and may be why none of his American classmates remember him.

    • Mary O’Grady

      I know: hearing this brought me back to 2007-8. Really it just annoyed me as it reminded me how spineless most high ranking Conservatives were back (well, they still are really)then in dealing with Obama’s past. They could, and should, have stopped his meteoric rise right there and then.

      Still, IF there is a possibility they might force him now, I guess it’s better late than never, but I am not holding my breath.

  • p m

    Delighted that Rush read the full article by Wayne Root – just wish Romney would do what he suggests. What does it mean, if anything, should he not?

    There was a National Press Club conference mid-July, all about vetting 0zero. Tons of information about the Russian connection to islamic terrorism and the Soros network. Added to Breitbart’s and other’s efforts, they’ll have a very hard time burying it all.

    The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connnection

    • MaxineCA

      WOW! I thought my head would explode trying to take in all of that info. Very scary stuff, and might explain why Obama passed the message to Putin that he would have more flexibility in his second term.

      I know we are all very worried about the fiscal cliff we’re facing…… but I’m beginning to think that is a huge distraction. (We could certainly get our fiscal house in order if there was a will to do it.)

      More importantly, what we are facing is losing our liberty, freedom and our country as we’ve known it. Man oh man. We’ve got to to stop it from happening!

  • MaxineCA

    Thanks you guys for posting the links regarding the 2008 passport “breach” incident. ID theft…. really? If you’re in the middle of a presidential campaign, is someone really going to try to use fake ID to pass themselves off as H. Clinton, McCain or Obama? The guy that was murdered was “working with the govt”. Exactly WHO in the govt? Did the poor guy stumble onto something that needed to be covered up? Was anyone prosecuted for the “ID theft” claim?

    This whole thing stinks!

  • marketcomp

    I have always thought that the dems bringing up Mitt Romney’s tax returns was a losing argument. I mean not only did the democrats out this phoney fake individual up a President everything about Obama’s birth certificate is fake, his selective service card is fake, no records from high school, Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard and that’s just to tip of the iceberg. So the dems and the lame stream media need to shut-up because they are all guilty of perpetuating this fraud. Lord only knows where this may lead and given the fact that he has paid lawyers millions of dollars to seal all of these documents means that he definitely has something to hide. If Mitt Romney really did not pay his taxes the democrats would have made sure that came out in the primaries! And I only only shutter to think that if this was a republican hiding and sealing critical documents and records that proves identity he would have been gone by now just like the string of opponents who ran against Obama.

  • pdxlady

    I am so glad that Rush brought up and read this article today on his program. This will give it more coverage, and the mainstream always has to respond to his show comments. Greta will probably have this segment on her show tonight.

    I read it yesterday on the Blaze, and hoped that it would get picked up, but I never dreamed that Rush would bring it out! Hoo Rah!

    • Conservative_Hippie

      I think Rush is a closet Birther, but doesn’t want to alienate his viewers so he’s slowly bringing to light these articles.

      • pdxlady

        I tend to agree with you on this.

      • I bet almost everyone’s a closet birther. Even the biggest libs. Some have trouble coming out. Get David Axelrod to tell the truth for a minute, I’m sure he knows.

        (I believe Rush’s strategy is that he doesn’t want to get ahead of the public.)

      • GJPinks

        You are all forgetting how Rush got scammed on a rumor tied to the Vince Foster “Suicide”. I still believe the Clinton gang manipulated and timed it to make everyone look stupid.
        If not legally qualified to serve NULLIFY everything he did.
        The scandal would destroy the Democrat Party and the MSM

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Yep, I remember the Vince Foster fiasco! I still think the Clintons had something to do with his suicide.

          I believe some day the truith will come out. I just hope it’s sooner rather than later

  • kong1967

    All colleges have photo albums, don’t they? Mine did, anyway. Why do they have to unseal the records when many people have photo albums? If he’s not in any of them he didn’t go there.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    The MSM could care less about obama’s grades, how his tuition at Columbia was paid, or anything that might reflect negatively about the STRANGER in the White House. I could believe he got into college as a foreign student. That’s why he doesn’t truly understand what it means to be an American in my opinion.


    …why won’t they just ask President Hussein Obama ? He tells the truth does he not .”

  • You would think that if 0bama was EDUCATED he would never have said “57 STATES” when campaigning for President. Also, the fact that he ALWAYS uses a teleprompter and has not taken a single question from the WH Press pool in over 7 weeks is very telling. He’s afraid of making a gaffe which reveals that he is a fraud. The one time he went ‘off script’ he said “You didn’t build that.” One little window into 0bama and he showed us what a Euro-Socialist fraud he is. Back onto the teleprompter he goes!

  • denbren52

    It has more credibility than the Romney paid no taxes story and I love the challenge

  • Conservative_Hippie

    The most damning of Root’s article is that Fox news randomly called 400 Columbia students from the same year as Obama and none of them remembers Obama!?

  • jrn_37

    The Rev. James Manning has a you tube video that he states an x CIA agent told him if Rev Manning wanted the truth about obama to for for it at Columbia.

  • DEBakaFoxieNews

    Obama is not who he claims to be for sure. Nobody really knows who he really is, except his handlers. Google: “Bari M. Shabbaz”. That really got my attention, read it carefully. One of these days the truth will come out about him and expose everyone who handled and covered for him.

  • hbnolikeee

    The defense is definitely to give it back just as tough. Does anyone need a list of unanswered questions?



  • sjmom

    Not surprised and hope and pray the truth is known.

  • drphibes

    From “President Kardashian” to “Foreign Exchange President” in just a few episodes.

  • jo_ella

    I believe that Romney should demand Obama unseal his records….The American people should demand that too!!!

  • One way or another…

    The truth will come out.

    BHObama, aka titular head of the ‘OCCUPY’ movement in America, aka OCCUPIER-in-Chief, whether or not he has Indonesian citizenship, or Kenyan citizenship, or USA citizenship, has NEVER been eligible to be POTUS.

    What does that mean?

    The answer is found in the ORIGINAL ‘Birther’ document of our Republic, the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5, the ONLY place in the founding documents,

    – Declaration of Independence,
    – Articles of Confederation,
    – U.S. Constitution,

    where the words ‘natural born Citizen’ and ‘Citizen’ are in the SAME Clause 5, in the SAME sentence, separated by a comma and the word ‘or’ with original intent.

    And, for extra study credit, the answer is in the Naturalization Act of 1795 where the single word ‘Citizen’ emended the three words ‘natural born Citizen’ of the Naturalization Act of 1790.


  • After reading “Roots of Obama’s Rage”, I thought the school records – well, actually, soon after he came onto the international stage.

  • So many of those in Obama’s administration took advantage of social justice programs is it any wonder they want to continue that practice which has saddled this nation with so much debt & disharmony.

  • CalCoolidge

    Ah, you can take all of the Roots, Limbaughs, and Trumps in the world – and not matter how loudy they try to yell – the MSM will never pursue this any further than to say those who raise the questions are either crazy or racist.

    That’s my “gut,” Mr. Root, but then I was never a huckster hawking losing football picks.

  • JacksonPearson

    Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse investigators, with help from numerous Adobe software, and font experts, have proven, that the pdf image posted by Obama on the white house web site, is a forgery. Add, a separate private investigator have Barack H. Obama tied to over thirty social security numbers. Obama’s current SS number, that he’s using to file income taxes with, failed E-Verify. Yet, the MSMs silence on these felonious issues, have been deafening!
