Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Party vice presidential nominee, successful Vegas odds maker, author and speaker, recently made headlines in the style of Donald Trump by publicly stating that he believes he knows why Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama II continues to refuse to unseal and release his college transcripts.
Root attended Columbia University and graduated in 1983, the same year as Mr. Soetoro. Root also was a political science, pre-law major in a graduating class of about 700 students, of which it is estimated that 250 or so students shared the same major.
In sum and substance, Mr. Root speculates that Barry Soetoro was accepted and attended Columbia University as a foreign exchange student, most likely as an Indonesian citizen. Mr. Root added that He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships awarded due to his citizenship status. At this point, you might be inclined to brush off the entire matter as speculation, classify it as a distraction or otherwise downplay the significance of the issue. There are a number of critically important reasons why one must not dismiss any or all of this.
Having researched, investigated, and reported on the inconsistencies in the life of Barry Soetoro as a professional investigator, permit me to offer a bit of speculation of my own based on four years of history regarding this subject. I suspect that the average Obama supporter and the corporate Obama “presstitutes” will likely describe Mr. Root’s speculative dalliances as the baseless white noise of partisan politics. Meanwhile, the average member of the Republican establishment will continue to shy away from making any meaningful demands of Obama about his murky past. Any true conservative elected official with the testicular fortitude to press the issue will quickly be ostracized and instructed to remain silent by the beltway eunuchs holding the political clout over the former.
Meanwhile, right-wing political talking heads of the airwaves who address this issue will do so narrowly, sticking to a tightly controlled script of how this speculation should be used defensively for the sole purpose of advancing the GOP candidate. The greater picture, if any dare to address it, will omit any discussion of the darker and more sinister aspects of the Obama narrative that could expose the depth of the Obama/Soetoro rabbit hole. The Progressive talkers will continue their Alinsky tactics of mocking and marginalization the issue, concurrent with depicting the inquisitors as racists and bigots, to avoid potential criminal or treasonous revelations.
Absent of true, uncompromised, and principled Conservative leaders, talk jocks with huge audiences but constrained by a lack of integrity, the desire for the truth, or acquiescing to duress by their paymasters or the long arm of globalist watchdogs, the vast catatonic population will be forced to settle for the normal political dog-and-pony show.
Meaning no disrespect to seven of the bravest of Americans of the Space Shuttle Columbia who perished on February 1, 2003, during reentry, full disclosure of all authentic and authenticated records of Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama II from Columbia would almost certainly spell disaster and end the false narrative of the current occupier of the White House. It would also have far-reaching criminal implications for Soetoro/Obama and those who actively conspired to perpetuate a criminal conspiracy of unprecedented magnitude.
If Wayne Allyn Root’s instinct is correct that Barry Soetoro was admitted to Columbia University as a foreign student and received subsidies on that basis, then the reason that Soetoro/Obama ordered his records sealed from public inspection is obvious. I have performed a quarter of a century’s worth of background investigations for large corporations, vetting executive candidates for leadership positions as an investigator in the private sector. During those years, I have never experienced a candidate refuse to release their college transcripts despite less than stellar grades, attendance or even expulsion. Furthermore, I’ve never seen a client reject a candidate on that basis alone. I have, however, seen candidates rejected (and once criminally charged) due to material misrepresentations.
Therefore, I agree with Mr. Root that the issue is much greater. I would also suggest that by releasing the records, they would expose some level of fraud, either then or now, and have disastrous consequences for Barry Soetoro and others.
I believe that What is interesting to observe is the manner that this issue is being handled by the Republican and conservative leadership.
If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked. (Proverbs 29:12 King James Bible)
It is important to note that like the Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) controversy that has yet to be settled, Mr. Root was not the first or only person to suspect something nefarious in the false ‘Messianic’ legend known as Barack Hussein Obama II. Reverend James Manning, in particular, conducted an extensive probe of Soetoro/Obama’s enrollment and activities at Columbia and concluded that significant irregularities exist within the official narrative of his status and activities there. Other citizen journalists who have investigated the eligibility issue have also arrived at the same or similar conclusions.
The Columbia matter is but one issue in what would appear to be a continuous course of conduct of deceit, cover-ups, obfuscation and obstruction. As I have written numerous times, we still do not know the legal name of the man known as Barack Hussein Obama II, as we have not been privy to early identification papers that include but are not limited to his adoption records. To anyone who doubts the veracity of my assertion, I would ask you to furnish the authenticated documentation that verifies his legal name change from Soetoro to Obama.
So, what are we to conclude from all of this?
There must come a time when politics takes a back seat to the survival of our nation. I believe we are long past that time. What will it take for people to understand that this is not merely about producing documents, but verifying allegiance to the United States of America?
It is unfortunate that political posturing has taken precedence over integrity and ethics. It is unfortunate that the conservative “constitutionalist” element of our leadership has turned a blind eye to the very document on which this country was founded. It is unfortunate that the conservatives who command large listening and viewing audiences have abdicated their responsibilities to investigate and inform, to use their power and influence to save a nation in trouble.
We’ve progressed four years with a man in the White House whose legal name we do not know, whose citizen status is still in question, and whose platform of transparency is really a wall of darkness. We’ve endured four years of wars and more wars, and accepted the designation of our own soil as a battleground. We’ve watched as the policies of the man occupying the seat in the Oval Office has set the Middle East afire and created a most dangerous situation for our closest ally in the Middle East in the process. We’ve permitted the executive and legislative branches of government to issue orders and pass legislation that tramples the rights of every American citizen and watched as the judicial branch itself has not only turned a blind eye to lawlessness, but engaged in the very same activities from which it should protect its citizens.
Within the last four years, we’ve watched our government become infiltrated with Communists and Marxists, and Muslim terrorist sympathizers. We’ve become complacent to daily violations of our Fourth Amendment rights by the TSA, and allowed our wives, children, parents and others be fondled and groped under the false premise of security. We’ve accepted military and paramilitary maneuvers on our streets as if we are already a Banana Republic. We’ve watched as the bankers, together with our elected leaders and appointed officials, debase our currency and incrementally eradicate the middle class.
Yet, instead of demanding accountability on Soetoro/Obama’s Columbia records and all of the sealed records behind the man himself to determine allegiance, the best that conservatives in power, behind the microphone or behind the TV cameras, have done is to turn what should be a national security issue into a Republican presidential strategy. Those who watched the Sean Hannity program last evening had front-row seats into how the assertion by Wayne Allyn Root was molded into a political game of “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.” Have we, as a people, reached the glass ceiling of our collective intellectual prowess and concern for the future of our nation by reducing a vital national security issue into a mere election strategy?
The elected leaders sworn to uphold the laws and protect our nation have had four years to properly address the questions regarding the bona fides of the man known as Barack Hussein Obama. The conservatives of the airwaves have had ample opportunities to step up and define ethics and integrity by their actions. Both have failed us, and failed us miserably.
