THE HOAX


THE UNANSWERED MYSTERY OF THE CENTURY

This came from a union guy in Chicago who didn't vote for Obama.
Very, very interesting perspective that I never thought of in this light.
-------------------

It will be interesting to see what they put in his "Presidential Library"
about his early years when he is out of office.

In a country where we take notice of many, many facets of our public figures' lives, doesn't seem odd that there's so little we know about our current president, Barack Obama.

For example, we know that Andrew Jackson 's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery; Abe Lincoln never went to school;

Jack Kennedy wore a back brace; Harry Truman played the piano. As Americans, we enjoy knowing details about our newsmakers, but none of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own president.

We are all aware of the lack of uncontestable birth records for Obama; that document managing has been spectacularly successful.

There are however, several additional oddities in Obama's history that appear to be as well managed as the birthing issue.
One other interesting thing... There are no birth certificates of his daughters that can be found ?

It's interesting that no one who ever dated him has shown up. The charisma that caused women to be drawn to him so strongly during his campaign, certainly would in the normal course of events, lead some lady to come forward, if only to garner some attention for herself.

We all know about JFK's magnetism, that McCain was no monk and quite a few details about Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess, Joe Biden's aneurisms are no secret; look at Cheney and Clinton, we all know about their heart problems. Certainly Wild Bill Clinton's exploits before and during his White House years, were well known. That's why it's so odd that not one lady has stepped up and said, "He was soooo shy..." or "What a great dancer..."

It's virtually impossible to know anything about this fellow.

Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Then check groomsmen.

Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony. Has anyone talked to the professors? It is odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

When did he meet Michele, and how? Are there photos there? Every president gives to the public all their photos, etc. for their library, etc. What has he released? And who in hell voted for him to be the most popular man in 2010? Doesn't this make you wonder?

Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from President Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc??

Not one person has ever come forward from his past. It certainly is very, very strange...

This should be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him, you may have elected an unqualified, inexperienced shadow man. Have you seen a movie named "The Manchurian Candidate"

As insignificant as each of us might be, someone with whom we went to school will remember our name or face; someone will remember we were the clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something about us.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News said the same thing during the 2008 campaign. He questions why no one has acknowledged the president was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos also was a classmate of Obama at Columbia -- the class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him.

He is such a great orator; why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class remember him? Why won't he allow Columbia to release his records?

Nobody remembers Obama at Columbia University ....

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there... but none remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia, ever."

Nobody recalls him. Root adds that he was also, like Obama, Class of '83 Political Science, and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."

Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia .
Some other interesting questions:

Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002? it is said there is no record of him ever taking the Bar exam.

Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by court order?
We understand that was forced to avoid fraud charges.

It is circulating that according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 alias connected to him.

The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is reported to have never lived. And was originally registered to another man (Thomas Louis Wood) from Connecticut , who died in Hawaii while on vacation there. As we all know Social Security Numbers are only issued 'once, they are not reused'He has still not produced a valid Birth Certificate. The one produced had 13 obvious errors in it as determined by computer experts, the person who wrote the computer program for

No wonder all his records are sealed...

Please continue sending this out to everyone. Somewhere, someone had to know him in school ... before he reorganized" Chicago & burst upon the Scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention.

Clint Eastwood said his Republican National Convention speech achieved exactly what he wanted it to. He then proceeded to label President Barack Obama a “hoax.”....“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,”

Why Have Elections?

BY THOMAS SOWELL

In a country with more than 300 million people, it is remarkable how obsessed the media have become with just one — Donald Trump. What is even more remarkable is that, after six years of repeated disasters, both domestically and internationally, under a glib egomaniac in the White House, so many potential voters are turning to another glib egomaniac to be his successor.

No doubt much of the stampede of Republican voters toward Mr. Trump is based on their disgust with the Republican establishment.

The fact that the next two biggest vote-getters in the polls are also complete outsiders — Dr. Ben Carson and Ms. Carly Fiorina — reinforces the idea that this is a protest.

It is easy to understand why there would be pent-up resentments among Republican voters. But are elections held for the purpose of venting emotions?

No national leader ever aroused more fervent emotions than Adolf Hitler did in the 1930s. Watch some old newsreels of German crowds delirious with joy at the sight of him. The only things at all comparable in more recent times were the ecstatic crowds that greeted Barack Obama when he burst upon the political scene in 2008.

Elections, however, have far more lasting, and far more serious — or even grim — consequences than emotional venting. The actual track record of crowd-pleasers, whether Juan Peron in Argentina, Obama in America or Hitler in Germany, is very sobering, if not painfully depressing.

The media seem to think that participation in elections is a big deal. But turnout often approaches 100 percent in countries so torn by bitter polarization that everyone is scared to death of what will happen if the other side wins. But times and places with low voter turnout are often times and places when there are no such fears aroused by having an opposing party win.

Despite many people who urge us all to vote, as a civic duty, the purpose of elections is not participation. The purpose is to select individuals for offices, including President of the United States. Whoever has that office has our lives, the lives of our loved ones and the fate of the entire nation in his or her hands.

An election is not a popularity contest, or an award for showmanship. If you want to fulfill your duty as a citizen, then you need to become an informed voter. And if you are not informed, then the most patriotic thing you can do on election day is stay home. Otherwise your vote, based on whims or emotions, is playing Russian roulette with the fate of this nation.

All the hoopla over Donald Trump is distracting attention from a large field of other candidates, some of whom have outstanding track records as governors, where they demonstrated courage, character and intelligence. Others have rhetorical skills like Trump or a serious mastery of issues, unlike Trump.

Even if Trump himself does not end up as the Republican nominee for the presidency, he will have done a major disservice to both his party and the country if his grandstanding has cost us a chance to explore in depth others who may include someone far better prepared for the complex challenges of this juncture in history.

After the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, we are entering an era when people alive at this moment may live to see a day when American cities are left in radioactive ruins. We need all the wisdom, courage and dedication in the next president — and his or her successors — to save us and our children from such a catastrophe.

Rhetoric and showmanship will certainly not save us.

Donald Trump is not the only obstacle to finding leaders of such character. The ultimate danger lies in the voting public themselves. All too many signs point to an electorate including many people who are grossly uninformed or, worse yet, misinformed.

The very fact that the voting age was lowered to 18 shows the triumph of the vision of elections as participatory rituals, rather than times for fateful choices. If anything, the age might have been raised to 30, since today millions of people in their 20s have never even had the responsibility of being self-supporting, to give them some sense of reality.

We can only hope that the months still remaining before the first primary elections next year will allow voters to get over their emotional responses and concentrate on the life and death implications of choosing the next President of the United States.

Obama's Strange Dependence on Valerie Jarrett

By Karin McQuillan

President Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before saying yes, because he got cold feet about the possible political harm to himself if the mission failed. Instead of listening to advisors from the U.S. military, Defense, or even State, Obama was acting on the advice of White House politico and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett?

This account comes from Richard Miniter's upcoming book Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors who Decide for Him. Miniter has written a half-dozen books on the war on terror. He is relying on an unnamed source within the U.S. military Joint Special Operations Command who was directly involved in the operation and planning of the Osama bin Laden kill mission.

Is the story credible? According to Edward Klein, a reporter once asked Obama if he ran every decision by Jarrett. Obama answered, "Yep. Absolutely."
Edward Klein, former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor of the New York Times Magazine for many years, describes Jarrett as "ground zero in the Obama operation, the first couple's friend and consigliere." Klein -- who claims he used a minimum of two sources for each assertion in his book on the Obama presidency, The Amateur -- writes in detail about Jarrett opposing the raid on bin Laden. She told Obama not to take the political risk. Klein thought Obama ignored Jarrett's advice. Miniter tells us he listened to her, three times telling Special Operations not to take the risk to go after bin Laden.

We need to understand the role Valerie Jarrett plays in Obama's private and political life.

"If it wasn't for Valerie Jarrett, there'd be no Barack Obama to complain about," starts Klein's chapter on Jarrett. He quotes Michelle Obama on Jarrett's influence over her husband: "She knows the buttons, the soft spots, the history, the context."

No one outside Michelle has the access or power over Obama's decision-making like Jarrett does. Here's an odd little fact that gives some insight into what kind of president Obama is: Michelle, Michelle's mother, and Valerie, and only a few others in Washington, are allowed to call Barack by his first name. After work, Jarrett joins Obama at night in the Family Quarters, where she dines often with the First Family. She goes on vacation with them.

Jarrett's title is the weird mouthful "Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs." She is the gatekeeper, but she is also much more than that. She occupies Karl Rove's and Hillary's old office and has an all-access pass to meetings. She shows up at the National Security Council, at meetings on the economy and budget. She stays behind to advise Obama on what to think and do. Obama uses her as his left-wing conscience. Klein's sources describe how at each pressing issue, Obama turns to ask her, "What do you think the right thing to do is?" As president, he likes to have her next to him "as the voice of authentic blackness in a White House that is staffed largely by whites."

A longtime friend told Klein that Jarrett is the "eyes, ears and nose" of the Obamas. She tells them whom to trust, who is saying what, whom to see at home and abroad. Michelle wants her there: "I told her ... it would give me a sense of comfort to know that (Barack) had somebody like her there by his side." As Obama told the New York Times, "Valerie is one of my oldest friends. ... I trust her completely."

To understand why Obama relies so heavily on Jarrett, we must remember the president's identity crisis as a black man, which is the main subject of his memoir, Dreams from My Father. Valerie Jarrett's adoption of the Obamas as her friends and protégés in Chicago's upper-crust black society was one of the greatest things that ever happened to Obama. Until becoming a community organizer, Obama tells us he felt himself to be an inauthentic American black. Nothing in his life helped him understand or fit into the American black community.

Within a few weeks of Obama's birth, conceived out of wedlock as he was, his mother moved away to a different college, leaving Obama's African birth father behind in Honolulu. There may have been a shotgun wedding or not -- in the memoir, Obama says he is not sure. The only time Barack set eyes on his father was a brief visit when he was ten. Our president lived with his white mother, then with her and her Indonesian husband in Indonesia from age six to ten. He was so unhappy that he chose to leave his mother and live with his white grandparents back in America. Obama's America was the tolerant, wealthy American world of Honolulu's top prep school.

His only black experience was his grandfather's creepy old friend, Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying Communist and self-disclosed pederast, who was Obama's voice of authentic blackness. One result of this lonely and unhappy childhood as a mixed-race child was Barack Obama's envy problem. The key to understanding Jarrett's power over the president is that Obama didn't just envy people with normal parents and loving, successful fathers. He envied American blacks, especially those who grew up in intact black families, knowing who they were, comfortable in their black skin.

Valerie Jarrett reflects Obama in many ways. Like himself, Valerie looks more white than black. Her mother had three white grandparents, and her father was black. Like Obama, she lived in the Muslim world for part of her childhood, when her father practiced medicine in Iran. Like Obama, she is a committed leftist. But there are crucial differences. Her father was not a drunk Kenyan polygamist like Obama's, but a famous pathologist and geneticist. Her mother was not a leftist expatriate like Obama's, but a distinguished psychologist. Valerie married into Chicago's black elite, the top rung of African-American society. She went to Stanford, got a law degree from Michigan, and became Mayor Richard Daley's deputy chief of staff, "the public black face" of his administration.

When Valerie Jarrett hired Michelle to work for Daley and befriended her, the Obamas gained access to the exclusive world of upper-class black Chicago politics. Valerie knew everyone whom it was important to know in black and Jewish money circles. She gave Barack entrée and legitimacy. She financed and promoted his ambitions for national office.

Obama finally belonged. Not that Jarrett's record in Chicago was anything to be proud of. Jarrett was known for her corruption and incompetence. Daley finally had to fire her after a scandal erupted over her role in misuse of public funds in the city's substandard public housing. She went on to become CEO of Habitat Executive Services, pulling down $300,000 in salary and $550,000 in deferred compensation. Again, she managed a housing complex that was seized by government inspectors for slum conditions. The scandal didn't matter to Obama. The sordid corruption was all part of Jarrett's Chicago success story.

Every insider in Chicago told Klein the same thing: Jarrett has no qualifications to be the principal advisor to the president of the United States. She doesn't understand how Washington works, how relations with Congress work, how the federal process works. She doesn't understand how the economy works, how the military works, how national security works. But she understands how Obama works.

The president turns to Valerie Jarrett for definitive advice on all these issues. She has given him terrible advice over and over, and still he turns to her.

Her true job is to make Obama feel proud of himself. When Obama looks at Jarrett, he sees himself as whole and good and real. He is no longer the fake black, the fatherless kid flailing around in a white world, tortured by the unfairness of it all. She fills the emptiness at the core of his identity. She admires and adores him. Jarrett told New Yorker editor David Remnick that the president is "just too talented to do what ordinary people do." And the icing on the cake -- she shares his left-wing politics that project unfairness out onto white America.

Obama relies on Jarrett to create the White House bubble he likes to live in, where his narcissism is stroked and his desire to do the big, left-wing thing is encouraged. Jarrett is the doorman. She runs access to the president. As Klein puts it, she guards him from meeting with "critics and complainers who might deflate his ego." No one gets past Jarrett who has an incompatible point of view.

Jarrett pushed ObamaCare. At the beginning of Obama's presidency, there was pressure on Obama to focus on the economic crisis. Rahm Emanuel advised a small, bipartisan health care reform with popular items such as coverage for young adults -- to get it passed quickly and focus on the country's money problems. Jarrett urged the president to be true to his left-wing agenda. She was all for having Reid-Pelosi create the ObamaCare assault on the American health system and ramming it through on a one-party vote, using Chicago-style politics, while Obama crossed the country doing what he does best: make speeches. Obama liked Jarrett's idea. Emanuel is now out of the White House.

Jarrett pushed the Solyndra fiasco. Jarrett promoted Solyndra because one of her richest Chicago connections, billionaire George Kaiser, a top Obama bundler, had a 35% share in Solyndra. Kaiser visited the White House sixteen times.

Larry Summers, the director of the president's National Economic Council, warned Obama that the federal government should not get involved in venture capital of any sort. Summers understood that crony capitalism sabotages economic growth. Huge government funding distorts and destroys whatever market segment it touches, replacing economic decisions with political ones.

A member of Obama's finance committee warned the president that Solyndra was going bankrupt. But it is Obama and Valerie who see eye to eye, and they saw the value to Obama of rewarding his political cronies. It worked fine in Chicago. Larry Summers is now out of the White House.

Jarrett pushed Obama to take on the Catholic Church over contraception, arguing that it would appeal to single women (she was right) and that religious freedom isn't important (she was wrong). Bill Daley, who had replaced Rahm Emmanuel as chief of staff, argued against Obama pushing contraception on the Church and invited Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan of New York to meet with a displeased Obama, who didn't appreciate hearing from the Church. Daley is now out of the White House.

Valerie Jarrett is the most powerful woman in Washington. She has guided the president's decisions on health care, the budget, the stimulus, the deficit, foreign affairs.

So when Jarrett told Obama that the mission to kill bin Laden was too politically risky, and to play it safe, it is entirely plausible to believe that the president listened to her. It is consistent with everything we know about Obama's dependence on her. According to Miniter's source in the U.S. Military Joint Special Operations Command, Obama listened to her for four months, dithering and deciding no the first three times the military told him that the time to get bin Laden was now.

In The Amateur, Klein reports that another worry won out. Obama was even more scared of the political fallout if voters learned he'd passed up the chance to get bin Laden. What decided him wasn't the national interest, but politics. For once, the president disagreed with Valerie Jarrett.

President Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before saying yes, because he got cold feet about the possible political harm to himself if the mission failed.

THE BLACK LIVES MATTER SHAM

by Marshall Frank

“Black Lives Matter” is an anarchist movement funded by leftist Socialist, George Soros, in order to create a deeper racial divide inside America. It is based on a sham – or shams – which are an outgrowth from a number of publicized shootings involving black men/boys as purported victims and police officers as shooters, the most famous of which was Michael Brown, 18, in Ferguson, Missouri in August of 2014.

The facts are irrefutable, that Michael Brown, a 300 pound mammoth kid, strong-armed a store clerk to rob merchandise. Moments later he was confronted by a police officer doing his job, telling Brown and his friend to stop walking in the middle of the street. Brown’s response was a physical attack upon Officer Darren Wilson, who was sucker-punched while sitting in his police car, then struggled to prevent Brown from wrestling his gun away. Moments later, when the officer ordered Wilson to halt, Brown turned and charged menacingly toward the police officer who, at that moment, had no choice but to protect himself, firing shots that killed Brown.

At least six eye-witnesses, mostly black citizens, and independent of Brown’s thug friend, testified to these facts before a grand jury, which had no alternative but to clear Officer Wilson. Wilson was Not Guilty of any wrong doing! This, despite efforts by the Attorney General and the forces of the federal government to try and make this into a “racist” act on the part of the cop…which was totally untrue. Even Holder had to admit there was no valid evidence against the officer.

Nevertheless, the gangs of thugs, pretending to be outraged blacks, took over the streets of Ferguson where they destroyed more than 200 businesses and homes, mostly black-owned – for the frivolity of it. Millions of dollars in damage was lost.

Those innocent lives mattered more, because they were hard working, peaceful law abiding blacks who didn’t deserve to be looted, burned, destroyed and otherwise displaced. If black lives matter, then why did they harm innocent black people?

Yet, the looters prevailed. They got all the attention asserting that some diabolical cabal of cops banded together to kill blacks because – well – because they are black. We all know that’s beyond absurd. But, the George Soros bands of anarchists did what they were paid to do; Destroy, under the banner of “Black Lives Matter” protests.

Yes – they were paid to “protest,” i.e., riot. These were well-planned premeditated acts, not spontaneous eruptions by local citizens. Numerous reports, some linked below, revealed that George Soros had earmarked over $30 million for the Ferguson “protests” part of which was to provide housing, transportation, materials, and pay to protesters. Almost a year later, many of those protesters were protesting Soros himself, demanding the payment they were promised. See link, below.

Fast forward to August of this year, another black male criminal in St. Louis was shot by cops who fired back after defending themselves from a man who brandished a gun. The cops were serving a lawful arrest warrant. More protests broke out. But, the news barely covered the fact that a 9 year-old girl in Ferguson, that same night, died from a drive-by bullet wound fired by black gangs into a mistaken house. Her life mattered too. Hellooo? Are you out there George?

One St. Louis woman, Peggy Hubbard, made an amazing video of herself protesting black on black crime, accusing the thugs of mischaracterizing cops who have only their jobs to do, enforcing laws under very dangerous circumstances. I invite all readers to watch and listen to this woman’s plea for sanity:

The same paid thugs came out of the woodwork in Baltimore in April of this year, when a multi-arrested drug dealer was arrested again, to be transported in a police van to the station. When he arrived, the man had an injury to the neck/spine, from which he later died. The facts surrounding how and why that injury occurred has yet to be revealed in court, but that didn’t matter to the professional rioters. Baltimore went up in flames, another array of business, cars and houses were destroyed putting more blacks out of work. This, by the way, with the blessing and aid of the mayor of Baltimore, a black female, who told the protesters they would have space to destroy. Police, meanwhile, were restrained from doing their rightful jobs to protect, as they were pummeled like sitting ducks with rocks and torches, dozens of whom required hospital treatment for injuries.

Black lives matter?

ALL LIVES MATTER. And, sorry – black lives do not matter more or less than anyone else’s lives.

This movement is a crock of crap, but enough glassy-eyed folks – some of whom mean well – will not bother to look beneath the surface to see what is really going on behind the deception. Anyone, or any organization, who buys into this protest movement is doing more to harm relations, than to bridge them. They are falling in a trap based on ruses and manufactured accusations of racism, which are untrue.

Sure, a black will be killed by a white cop sometimes. Two days after Michael Brown was killed in August of last year, a BLACK COP shot and killed an unarmed WHITE MAN in Salt Lake City. Anybody hear about that?

Anybody hear about the white deputy sheriff that was ambushed and executed near Houston on August 28th of this year, while he was gassing up his car? The shooter was a black man. Does this cop’s life matter?

Anybody hear about the State Trooper Steve Vincent, Louisiana, on August 16th who tried to help a driver stuck in a ditch, only to receive a bullet in the head? Does his life matter?

Another Louisiana cop, Henry Nelson, responded on August 26th to a domestic call only to be ambushed and killed? Another life that matters.

So far this year, 79 police officers have lost their lives in the line of duty, to protect and serve.

Of course, who can forget the two cops sitting in their car in New York City, ambushed and executed just before Christmas of 2014, by an irate black male for no other reason than being cops.

I will be the first to condemn and prosecute police officers who wrongfully harm or kill, whether white or black. I know…because I’ve done it. I’ve arrested cops. I’ve been in the bowels of race riots. I’ve seen white and black officers heroically defend the community in times of strife, I’ve seen the black victims of black crime, not only from riots but from day to day shooting and killings, 95 percent of which are generated by black criminals.

So let’s get off the pot, people. Those of you who yearn to join up with the false movement, think first about the real issues, like teaching black fathers to marry mothers and to form real families for babies so they don’t turn to gangs, and for black youths to get off welfare rolls and work at real jobs. Think about the rampant excesses of drug addiction that has infected all communities in America, but none so tragically as the black communities. Sure, a disproportionate percentage of blacks occupy prisons, because they commit a disproportionate number of violent crimes. We can do a lot to solve these and other problems in the black communities if leaders would stop politicizing by supporting junk movements like “Black Lives Matter” which accomplishes nothing but stirring hate. Leaders must immerse themselves into black homes and schools and streets to develop positive role models, instead of idolizing thugs who engage in filthy, degrading lyrics played constantly in homes and vehicles, disguised as gangsta rap music.

“Black Lives Matter” is a solution to nothing. Rather, it is symbolic of the problem: Ignorance. It breeds more hate. What does that solve?

“Black Lives Matter” is the sewer of social protest. If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. could see this happening, he’d rise from the grave and condemn Soros, and every anarchist that follows him.

Meanwhile, ex-Officer Darren Wilson, from Ferguson, has a life that matters too. He defended his life. But…who cares
