Obama’s plan hatched
at Columbia University

Human Events, by Wayne Root

Original Article

Posted By:EnsignO, 4/14/2013 12:55:47 PM

President Obama and I were college classmate at Columbia University, class of ’83. I know all too well how mindlessly liberal the students and faculty of that institution can be, and Barack Obama is certainly no exception. My time at Columbia made it crystal clear: liberals always believe they are morally superior. [Snip] It is in this cesspool of intolerance that Obama and his Marxist cronies hatched a secret plan to destroy our country. There are two things you need to know about Obama at Columbia University. First, he was Pre Law and a Political Science major- just like me.

Comments:
This is jaw-dropping. Parents of high schoolers who are trying to decide where to go to college might want to by-pass Columbia University.
Please post to word limit & split headline when long. LCom Staff.

Did the author actUally see Barry Soetero on campus? I think that Barry stayed in the Choom Room instead of classes. We have never seen transcripts, grades, classes taken, etc.
I do not take it on the word of Barry that he was present ....

FTA: "While I never met Obama at Columbia, I can certainly put him at the scene of the crime. He either went to Columbia, or he didn’t. If he didn’t, he’s a fraud. If he did, he knew the Cloward & Piven plan like the back of his hand."

Every sentence and every paragraph is "jaw-dropping" in that Obama´s performance as POTUS is now making sense. Throw in some George Soros and, voila!, you have the essence the Obama Thugocracy.

This was all well known to many of us in 2008, and Obama is now executing the agenda in the clear. He (they) believe they´ve passed the tipping point and no longer need to be surreptitious, that their momentum is sufficient to overcome all resistance and this is the end game. The may well be right.

All of us here might not have known these specific details about obama but we knew he wanted to destroy America. We know he is destroying us just as the article stated. This man does not have one redeeming quality, he has no qualifications to be president, he is a liar and he is sending us down that rat hole to hell. And yet the American voting public sent this sad excuse, this cow pie of a president back to our WH. While I do not want to believe this but on dark days I feel we are doomed. How in the hell did this happen?

He´s a partly black salesman who follows the orders of people who´ve been planning this for decades and who see lying and cheating a necessary means to their end. They get power by cultivating the worst of human nature - greed, envy, sloth - characteristics that used to be socially unacceptable but are now politically correct. The destruction of Christianity in our culture is a vital part of their plan to tear this country to shreds, destroy the self-reliance of the citizens, and putting themselves in charge of everything. Arrogant traitors!

My only hope is that Obama actually leaves the WH at the end of his normal term but if HRC "we´re going to take things away from you for the common good" gets in then our nightmare won´t be over.

It wouldn´t bother me as much if I thought all of those mega rich spoiled brats determined to bring down their fathers were going to suffer too. Unfortunately, they´re part of the elite who will not suffer. Ironically, their fathers probably supported Obama as he set out to destroy them.

We are living in dark, dark times. Pray harder than ever. Only God can save us from this type of evil.

This makes me sick to my stomach, to know that my suspicions and those of millions of others are true.

We are being destroyed from within by one man with millions of satanic accomplices, not a few belonging to the mainstream media.

Obama really is the Manchurian Candidate. People laughed when we on the Right called him that. If Mr. Root is telling the truth, it´s no longer a joke.

When Obama first emerged I recall some Columbia alumni being interviewed about one of their own being a presidential candidate. Most were all giddy with excitement, but couldn´t actually remember seeing him. One gal mentioned there were only 15-20 students in most classes for Poly Sci, so she was surprised their paths never crossed. I think he was being indoctrinated ´off the books´.

#6. Where were you when we were trying to tell you? You poo-pooed all the birthers and skeptics as imbeciles.

In 2007, when it was first was first identified that he could be nominated for the presidency, I said that anyone coming out of Chicago, running for a national position, had to be blessed by the Chicago Mob (i.e., the Chicago Mafia) including JFK. I just started collecting information over the internet, books and others that were doing the same thing. The covering up of all of his past and the shady caricature associates told the story. What started in 1961, was nothing but a cover-up of a sexual scandal of a "North Shore" socialite finding a surrogate father for a mixed race child, born in Kenya by a young woman playing games with Frank Davis and said socialite. Happens quite often in those circles. But, later, when it had to become a different story to fit with the current image necessary to run for the presidency.

When people spend large money to cover something up, it follows that they had something to cover up.

#14 - would you please elaborate? What did a North Shore socialite have to do with Obama´s parentage? Are you saying Ann Dunham is not but mother but Frank Davis is the father?
Why then would Obama be born in Kenya?

You must have reasons for your post. It would be nice to see them.

Now, Mr. Root? You wait until now to tell us this? Why not five, four, three or two years ago?

If the writer of this article, Wayne Root, makes claims that are true, this information leaves “jaw-dropping” way back in the dust. Astounding, astonishing, shocking and staggering would be more on the money.

That this article is timed with the release of Root’s book gives me pause.

The Cloward Piven article titled:"The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty" was originally printed by "The Nation" on May 2, 1966 and reprinted on March 8, 2010. Google the title to find it.

The title of the Nation article distorts the secondary goal of the strategy, which is clearly explained by the bottom line of the article, shown below. In addition to destroying our economy, the strategy is also a vote buying scheme, which unfortunately has worked.

"If organizers can deliver millions of dollars in cash benefits to the ghetto masses, it seems reasonable to expect that the masses will deliver their loyalties to their benefactors. At least, they have always done so in the past."

#18, in Dreams From My (Real ) Father, it is theorized that Frank Marshall Davis, an communist party organizer, and close friend of the Dunhams, also impregnated Stanley Ann Dunham. (And Davis, a photographer, also took photos of 17 year old stanley ann.
At the time of her pregnancy, it is futher asserted that Barack Sr was selected as the father of record, with the promise of residency status for him in the U.S.
So it could have been possible for Stanley Ann as part of the conspiracy, to go to Kenya to meet Obama´s relatives. And predicting delivery date on a teenager, first baby, is iffy. So she may have delivered jr. in Kenya,.
It would be fairl easy to get dna samples from the president and from a couple of his half brothers in Kenya.
hat would confirm or deny barack sr´s part in the pregnancy.
And Davis had several children, so dna could be gotten from them.

#22, yep, high-fives already existed then, and I just got all the Wikipedia details.

Btw, my own experience at Michigan football games in A2 in 1979 was that the low-fives
were ubiquitous then, and sometimes people also put both hands higher up for more
slaps to really emphasize a touchdown celebration or whatever.

Here´s the official "high-five" scoop (the low fives originated as far back as 1920´s)...
either at the Dodgers´ game in October 1977 or at the Louisville Cardinals´ basketball
games in the 78-79 season as shown on highlight reels, it got started.

Oxford English Dictionary had it in 1980 and 1981. Sports guy Al McGuire said it
on-air in 1980, "high-fives."

Since the Columbia students in question here were "elites" of course they were
out front in high-fiving about Reagan.

#6 and also #8...

my thoughts exactly...
but this guy is trying to sell his latest book, as you find out near the end of his
little promo article.

It´s on McCain & Romney that they did not use this info & also Rev. Jeremiah Wright´s
audio recordings to sink Obama before he got the chance to destroy our nation.

Being nice to Wannabe Kommie Dicktaters is purely and simply... suicidal.
Our national suicide is occurring before our very eyes.
Finally the Roman Empire´s example is coming all too true...
Destruction from within.

Lock and load for 2014.
We must kick Axe-hole-rod in those midterms.
And then....

If Hill-err-ee-ass Herself is sworn in on January 20, 2017 as our first lesbian prez,
by then it´s too late, and Billyboob Klintoon the rapist will hep finish us off.
Disbarred and impeached?... he don´t care.

These freaks plan to gut America...

Sorry for additional, but if I may...

Just remembered my Labor Economics course at American University in Spring 1972...
my only semester there... I was on the Dean´s List and aced this course...

Our prof was an ugly guy (name deleted) who blatantly favored socialism-Marxism.
He said it was wrong that the college president made more (earned higher) than
a janitor at the school.
"Everyone should be paid the same."

Let´s see... in the market, you pay the rate it takes to attract top talent...
Good college presidents are scarcer than dime-a-dozen janitors, one would think.
The college prez must have a Ph.D.
That takes time and money invested.
What´s the janitor got?
A broom?
Registered sex offender?

These radicals are nuts who are impractical and do not understand the first thing.
They will destroy us if not stopped quickly.

Lesson from Capitol Hill in 1970´s... true story...
Sen. Moynihan´s office paid Ph.D.´s only $10K (they were a dime-a-dozen on the Hill)
and paid top typists a whopping $16K (they were more in demand then and there)...
Not true of every office up there...
But we knew Moynihan staffers who told us this... you cannot make this stuff up...
And yes, I met Moynihan, and of course he himself was a Harvard Ph.D. and prof.

Root has been writing the same story about Barry Soetero for many years now. And to quote a below average Sec. of State, and our future first woman President, Hillary. What difference does it make.
Pres. Soetero has done what every Marxist would do. And because he is black, no mainstream opposition has been willing to call him on it.

Watching the old highlights of Lady Thatcher, it hit me. If any of the Bushes, or John McCain, or Mitt Romney had her balls we would not be in this mess right now.

#17, read up on Frank Marshall Davis, his white socialite wife, and the young girl named Ann he writes so graphically about.

Nothing really new here in this article by Wayne Root. Most people here back in 2008 and since have talked about investigative reporting done by Jerome Corsi, Jack Cashill, and others. It was widely talked about that no one at Columbia remembered Obama, that Percy Sutton told an interviewer that a Black Panther turned advisor to the Saudis came and asked him to help Obama get into Harvard Law. Then of course there is the name Harrison J. Bounel and all those social security numbers.

If there´s one thing that bugs me about the Obama years it is the palpable fact that Obama doesn´t love America. The last two weeks has intensified that feeling. We know why he doesn´t love America. It´s because he identifies with his Kenyan father´s hatred of Western colonialism.If that weren´t enough, Obama follows the cultural cues of liberal America, from his lefty mother to his lefty teenage mentors to his lefty college instructors to his lefty radical sponsors in Chicago. Liberals think they are too good for America. Ditto Obama.

It has been a long five years, our Obama nightmare. Sadly, there are no signs that things will improve anytime soon. Of course we know about the damage the President has done to our economy, by massively increasing the debt, raising taxes and growing government. The results have been catastrophic to say the least: a national debt of $17 trillion and a labor force participation rate at the lowest level since 1978.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values.

Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

As I sit writing from Berlin, Germany—I woke up this morning with the news that a demented American Nazi and KKK leader, Glenn Miller, has been arrested as the main suspect in the Kansas City murder of 3 American Jews. (Snip) Fortunately, a quick look at some of the anti-Semitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below: Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama This is some big dookee, yaw’ll. http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/ Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican
