The Ghost of Columbia University

The life of a Manchurian Candidate.

Not a single person that were among his classmates at their reunion remembered Obama with the exception of a leftist anti Israel professor.



obama_hlb-f12-13127.insideIt was as a law student that Obama first made history—and national headlines—when he was elected the first black president of the Harvard Law Review in the spring of 1990.

And as a law student, Obama met many professors and classmates who would prove helpful in his meteoric political rise from state senator to president of the United States in five years.

Each seems to have a story about how much Obama stood out.



Would you buy a used car from this guy or is he just enthusiastic?

Sure, Obama’s unique, and by now, familiar personal history, set him apart.

He arrived on campus at the age of 27 in the fall of 1988, older than many of his classmates after a stint as a community organizer in Chicago.



According to Professor Mack ’91, his classmate and friend, says Obama didn’t speak much at first about other aspects of his unique background, including a childhood spent in Hawaii and Indonesia or the fact that his mother was white.

Henry Graff, perhaps the most legendary and honored professor ever at Columbia University.

He was THE American History and Diplomatic History professor at Columbia for 46 years.

And he is more emphatic than yours truly that there are no Obama footprints at Columbia.

Most remarkable, given his complex identity, was how comfortable Obama seemed with himself.

“Barack’s identity, his sense of self was so settled,” recalled Cassandra Butts ’91, who met him in line at the financial aid office, in an interview with PBS’ “Frontline.”

“He didn’t strike us in law school as someone who was searching for himself.”

In the spring of his first year at law school, Obama stopped by the office of Professor Laurence Tribe ’66 inquiring about becoming a research assistant.

Tribe rarely hired first-year students but recalls being struck by Obama’s unusual combination of intelligence, curiosity and maturity.

He was so impressed in fact, that he hired Obama on the spot—and wrote his name and phone number on his calendar that day—March 31, 1989—for posterity.

Obama helped research a complicated article Tribe wrote making connections between physics and constitutional law as well as a book about abortion.

The following year, Obama enrolled in Tribe’s constitutional law course.

Tribe likes to say he had taught about 4,000 students before Obama and another 4,000 since, yet none has impressed him more.

Obama displayed other traits in law school besides eloquence that would define his success as a presidential candidate.

Only in the minds of those who fly with two left wings.

In reality, Obama was the most divisive individual to have ever occupied the Oval Office, be it by race, religion or socioeconomic status.

“He tended not to enter these debates and disputes but rather bring people together and forge compromises,” says Bradford Berenson ’91, who was among the relatively small number of conservatives on the Law Review staff. (Source)

My life has crossed paths with President Obama on multiple occasions. According to Obama, we were Columbia University classmates, both Pre-Law and Political Science majors in the Class of ’83.

What are the odds?

But something about “the Obama at Columbia story” has always bothered me.

Earlier in the week right here at The Blaze I wrote about having just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion.

I celebrated with my esteemed classmates.

Everyone except Barack Obama.

As usual, he wasn’t there.

Not a trace.

Not a video greeting.

Not a letter.

I could not find any classmates who knew him.

I called Obama “the Ghost of Columbia University.”

I pointed out (as I’ve said in the media for many years now) that Obama may have been registered at Columbia, may have graduated from Columbia, but he was rarely (if ever) seen for the two years in-between. 

It’s a strange, mysterious and frightening story.

Is he the real-life “Manchurian Candidate?”

What explains Obama having just enough skeletal proof that he was there (one photo, one roommate, one professor, one friend)…but never seen in a class, never on anyone’s radar screen, almost invisible.


A total 2-year blackout.

It’s like a story straight out of a novel about the CIA or KGB.

He graduated Columbia, but it’s almost as if he never went there.

To make matters more mysterious, Obama’s college records are sealed.

He’s had plenty of opportunities to authorize the release, to clear the air.

He has never chosen to do so.

But why?

What has he got to hide?

Funny enough Obama has never had a problem ripping open the sealed records of his political opponents.

Every step of his career Obama has beaten his opponents by having sealed documents just happen to be publicly exposed by anonymous sources.

But not Obama.

His records are always unavailable (and never leaked).

This goes perfectly with the timing of his long form birth certificate which he claimed to lower the clamor of “Those conspiracy theorists who demanded to see it. (Source)


The short form birth certificate like the one above was the only one issued during the time of Obama’s birth.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Yes, the pathological liar released a long form birth certificate, problematically for him they were not issued in that form when he was allegedly born.

Remember the death of Loretta, Health Examiner at the time of Obama’s birth.

Only a short form was provided.



Obama always seems to have powerful forces on his side.

Did he attend Columbia as a foreign student?

That was the educated guess I made in my appearance on “Hannity” on Fox News a year ago. (Wayne Allen Root)

The only photo of Obama from his Columbia days was in his off-campus apartment with a roommate described by USA Today as a Pakistani national, pot smoker, and cocaine abuser.

If you’re a foreign student, you live in housing off-campus with other foreign students.

That would also explain how he transferred to Columbia.

Transferring into an Ivy League school is all but impossible.

I did a little digging and found out only 3 transfer students in all of America were accepted into Columbia in the past academic year.

Three students out of 315 million Americans.

Yet those who knew Obama at Occidental called him a pot smoker and party boy who rarely attended class.

You’re telling me that a poor student, with that record, at an average college, was accepted for transfer into prestigious Columbia University?

Only if he was an exotic Indonesian foreign student transferring into a college that desperately wanted to claim an ethnically and globally diverse student body.

Still that might explain how Obama got into Columbia.

But where was he for those two years?

My gut instincts say something is wrong with “the Obama at Columbia story.”

Very wrong. Rancid.

But until now, I was the only one publicly voicing my suspicions.

That just changed in a big way.

I was put on Professor Graff’s trail by another Columbia classmate, skeptical about Obama’s story.

He told me that Professor Graff had been the speaker for the Class of ’53 last weekend at Columbia.

My friend was watching Graff answer questions from the crowd when he was asked about Obama at Columbia.

Graff said, “I have my doubts he ever went here.”




About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    He was a heavy abuser of pot while at his high school in HI, and I’m sure that he never gave up that habit! I wouldn’t doubt usage of powder cocaine either, once he could afford that.


  2. He has damaged America more than any president since Woodrow Wilson, EVEN including Jimmy Carter!


  3. Rule of Law says:


    As to Presidents damaging America, FDR gets my vote. The New Deal was a mistake and started the Socialist ball rolling down the hill.

    As to Obama he is a liar and fraud. I have not been able to reconcile just how or why Congress and the Supreme Court allowed his anti-Constitutional actions. Obama allowed the Muslim Czars to infiltrate America and its Intelligence agencies – the disaster continues as is evident in the DOJ, FBI and of course the State Department.

    The rumored “disclosures” being released these past few months are interesting and may expose all of the illegal actions of the Bush/Clinton Crime Families. Obama was their “guy” so to speak.

    Currently, as we approach the 2018 Mid-Term elections the power of the “Deep State” assassination programs are becoming evident. The Main Stream Media (MSM) has been exposed as a bias DNC support structure. The Kavanaugh hearings were the ultimate use of lies in an attempt to destroy Trump.

    Obama is still an unknown to America and its People. However, the “DOUBT” about everything Obama has grown with the Dr. Ford sex lies, the Stormy Daniels sex lies and so when we take a look back at the history of Obama we now can clearly see he was in America as a foreign student. As this and other facts become accepted by the entire American voting public we shall see what happens.

    Rumor has it that Michele Obama is a transgender man. Rumor has it Obama is a homosexual. Rumor has it the Obama is a devout Muslim who hates America. The Reverend Wright clearly hates America. Rumor has it that Michele and Barrack adopted their two daughters.

    President Trump and his team have a PLAN and then we have “Q” who is the person behind the Intelligence community offering the various exposures and disclosures. The PLAN is to return America to the Rule of Law which allows Due Process and no more secrets!

    Trump has ordered the full “Disclosure” of the FISA Warrant Application which is a 80+ page document with lots of interesting information. Trump has also ordered some other disclosures which are certain to cause troubles for various politicians – on both sides of the Party Lines!

    The time for a return to the Rule of Law has long passed and now America is heading in that direction.

    Obama having his records sealed is the ultimate “Obstruction of Justice” act in recent history.
