Harvard Law Review articles
In 1990, Obama beat out 18 other contenders to become the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, where he spent at least 50 hours a week editing submissions from judges, scholars and authors.
According to Politico, there were “eight dense volumes produced during his time in charge there – 2,083 pages in all.” No published writing from obama?
According to Politico, Obama’s name does not appear on any legal scholarships during his time at Harvard.
Why Didn’t Obama Publish anything in the law journal he edited?
Change in Selection System of The Harvard Law Review in the 1980′s.
Mr. Obama was elected after a meeting of the review’s 80 editors that convened Sunday and lasted until early this morning, a participant said.
Until the 1970’s the editors were picked on the basis of grades, and the president of the Law Review was the student with the highest academic rank. Among these were Elliot L. Richardson, the former Attorney General, and Irwin Griswold, a dean of the Harvard Law School and Solicitor General under Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon.
That system came under attack in the 1970’s and was replaced by a program in which about half the editors are chosen for their grades and the other half are chosen by fellow students after a special writing competition. The new system, disputed when it began, was meant to help insure that minority students became editors of The Law Review. ………………………………………………………………………………
Obama was a “minority student” He was chosen by fellow students through a “special writing competition”.
No “special writing competition” by the “minority student” obama has been published or released by Harvard that would explain or justify how obama was chosen by fellow students for his “writing skills”.
This is how obama was chosen to be the president and editor in chief of the Harvard law review. Though writing skills competition. Yet obama DID NOT PUBLISH ANYTHING OF HIS OWN!
Let me review. Obama has NO RECORD of ANY WRITING SKILLS or PUBLISHED ANY WORK of HIS OWN WHLE AT HARVARD!
OBAMA HAS PUBLISHED NOTHING AT HARVARD YET HE WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE HARVARD LAW REVIEW AND WORKED AS AN “EDITOR IN CHIEF” 50 HOURS A WEEK?
Obama was chosen because of affirmative action and because he was a “minority student”. Obama was not chosen because of any published writing skill. No published work equals ZERO proof obama is a “skilled writer”. There is no EVIDENCE obama ever did ANYTHING to qualify for the position of president of the Harvard Law Review except though AFFIRMATIVE ACTION for his minority.
Obama seems to have had affirmative action help but there is NO evidence he EVER QUALIFIED for any help through his WRITING SKILLS! Obama ONLY qualifed because he was a MINORITY!
This is why there is no record of any published works from obama while he was the “president” of the Harvard law review.
AGAIN I HAVE PROVED OBAMA IS A TOTAL FRAUD AND IMPOSTER!
I believe obama has used his”affirmative action plan” to move through the shadows of his hidden “education”. In other words I believe obama has used the system to ingratiate himself into the affirmative action system to promote himself. THIS IS WHY HE WILL NOT RELEASE ANY TRANSCRIPTS,THESIS STATEMENTS,OR RECORDS OF ANY KIND from the various schools he says he attended. I believe obama is a low grade empty suit. Obama has proven he is not a scholar by not publishing or releasing ANY records of his college education or any interview with the Harvard Law Record Newspaper. He has in effect revealed himself as an imposter.
Obama: Where have all his records gone? Footprints of president’s own history either vanish or remain covered up
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. (Editor I will state for the record I believe obama did attend Harvard but will not reveal his “writings”.)
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. I’m not exaggerating, I’m not kidding.” Root adds that he was also, like Obama, “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” 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. Is that not strange?
It’s very strange.” 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.
NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major (in the same class as President Barack Obama WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN IN)
……………………………………………………………………………… Various copied comments about Obama ……………………………………………………………………………… It’s a little odd that he had no friends or anyone else who remembered him. So true. It’s human nature for people who knew a famous person before they were famous to come out of the woodwork. Kind of like a lottery winner all of the sudden having thousands of friends they never knew about. You would think there would be a lot of hanger oners who want to be the one who knew Barry when.
Who is paying the attorneys to keep his past hidden? If he is such an amazing person, why is his past hidden? What are ALL of his records sealed? Why is his team attacking the “birthers”? Other presidents have historical markers at their birthplaces. Where is ozeros?
Look for “famous” graduates of Columbia. The only mention of obama I have found so far is on Wikipedia.
It’s hard to imagine a man like Obama didn’t Network somewhere on campus.
He didn’t belong to any Fraternities? He didn’t join any student organizations? No photos?
I’m just wondering exactly what program he was doing in his one year there, such as a dedicated study with his mentors in Third World Marxism, union thuggery, and how to bring down this country by using its own laws against it.
Yeah you would think that Columbia would be crowing like hell that one of their alums is now occupying the White House. And then he makes a commencement speech at notre dame instead of his alma matter. Wonder why?
It is possible he did the minimium to graduate and spent the rest of the time with the likes of Bill Ayres and/or radical Isamists.
It’s quite amazing. Nobody remembers him. They don’t remember him sitting in class.
“It’s very strange.” 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.”
Doesn’t pass the BO smell test. There couldn’t have been more than a handful blacks at Columbia at that time. Don’t you find it just a little curious that Obummer went from total obscurity and completely under the radar at Columbia to top of the heap at #1 rated Harvard Law School where he served as President of the Harvard Law Review?
(A possibility?) My guess is that he nevrer actually went to “Columbia University,” but rather, he went to “Columbia College.” Columbia Colege is technically part of Columbia University, but is geared to students who do not fit the traditional mold. Many of them are older or come from impoverished or challenged backgrounds, and may not meet the standards that one would normally associate with the Ivy League.
(“this clown has been “running a game” on the system all his life…various SS#’s, aliases, no medical records, no college transcripts, no birth certificate…”
Nobody scrubs their life history clean for no reason. Obama is dirtier than dirt itself.)

Sometimes he sounded like he was already running for public office, giving studied, measured responses in interviews with The Harvard Law Record. Asked in 1991 if he could do one thing differently in his last year at the Review, Obama said, “I don’t know that it was possible to do it any other way than I did it, but I would have liked to have had the luxury of being more strategic about my tenure.”
This is interesting. Obama gave “studied, measured responses in INTERVIEWS with the Harvard Law Record.” So where are any evidence of these published interviews? NONE!!!!!!!!!!!
Search for Obama Interviews here. You will find NONE. ZERO!
Are reprints available for articles in 1991.
How many times was the Harvard Law Record Newspaper published in 1991?
Are copies available?
Ps do you have a copy of “Asked in 1991 if he could do one thing differently in his last year at the Review, Obama said, “I don’t know that it was possible to do it any other way than I did it, but I would have liked to have had the luxury of being more strategic about my tenure” or any other quotes by the former president of your law review in 1991?
Let me try to analyze what obama said. What one thing would you do Mr Obama differently in your last year at the Harvard Review?
Obama said: I don’t know that it was possible to do it any other way than I did it.
In this statement he is saying EXACTLY NOTHING.
Obama said: But I would have liked to have had the luxury of being more strategic about my tenure.
In this statement obama is saying EXACTLY NOTHING ALSO.
The question was “what one thing would you do differently in your last year at the Harvard review?”
He seems to have said he would do “it” the same way. I guess it depends on what IT means!
Disinformation that is useless as obama.
I sent an email to the Harvard Law record editor and got an answer today.
My question to editor in chief Harvard Law Record:
Are reprints available for articles in 1991.
How many times was it published in 1991?
Are copies available?
Articles from 1991 are available through the microfilm edition of our newspaper, which is available through interlibrary loan at most academic libraries.

Obama’s vol. 104 is the least-cited volume of the Harvard Law Review in the last 20 years
Electronic searches made to determine the number of times Obama’s volume 104, and every other volume of the Harvard Law Review published during the last 20 years, has been cited in all law reviews during each subsequent year for which full data is available (starting in the year after the last issue of each volume appeared, and running through 2006, the last year for which full citation data is currently available).
The results of searches are in a PDF which you can download here:
Some highlights, using only the first 12 years of citations to each volume, where available (obviously, the more recent volumes have fewer years of citations available):
1. Obama’s volume 104 (1990-91) has been cited an average of 170 times a year. That is, it was cited 2045 times in the first 12 full years after publication (i.e., 1992 to 2003). It has been cited at the lowest rate of any volume published in the past 20 years.
2. By comparison, for all other volumes published during the past twenty years for which at least a year’s worth of data is available (vols. 101 to 103, and vols. 105 to 118), they have been cited an average of 262 times a year — a rate 54% higher than the citation rate for Obama’s volume.
Remember Obama spent at least 50 hrs a week determining what would be included in the harvard law review. He also edited the work of other editors.
(Finally a real record of something obama has done and it is a FAILURE that can be attributed to him personally as the president and final “editor’ of the Harvard Law Review)
Considering obama is also a failure as president of the US it is no surprise he has hid his past performance records that would indicate a track record of minimum performance.
Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.
Obama didn’t write his own books.

What the Mailman Knows about Ayers and Obama
By Jack Cashill
A few days ago I got a call asking whether I knew anything about the Ayers family mailman. I had heard of him, I said. I remembered liberal blogger Steven Diamond having interviewed the fellow a few years back, but I paid it little mind, as the information seemed too limited to pursue.
The caller then sent me a video interview with the mailman by WND sleuth Jerome Corsi. The video made me sit up and pay attention. The mailman is a real person. His name is Alan Hulton. He seems entirely credible, and he has a story to tell.
Hulton delivered mail in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, from 1962 to 2001 with a couple years off to serve in the military. During roughly ten of those years, he delivered mail to the home of Tom and Mary Ayers, Bill Ayers‘s parents. Hulton talked to Tom once, Mary several times, their daughter-in-law Bernardine Dohrn a few times, and Bill Ayers not at all. Memorably, he talked once to one of their visitors, but more on that in a moment.
As Hulton tells Corsi — and he has sworn an affidavit to the same — he met Tom Ayers not long after the Ayerses moved to the neighborhood. Until he retired in 1980 at the age of 65, Tom Ayers was the CEO and chairman of Commonwealth Edison. Tom, however, was not your garden-variety plutocrat. According to Diamond, who knows his way around Chicago politics, Tom was a “lifelong liberal” — one deeply involved in the same educational reform movement that engaged son Bill and, briefly, Barack Obama in 1988. Tom Ayers was comfortable enough with Bill’s lifestyle to live with him in Hyde Park until Tom died in 2007.
When Hulton met Tom Ayers, they talked about working conditions at the Post Office. “I couldn’t believe how he responded,” Hulton told Diamond. “He started to talk about workers having to struggle to survive and about peasants and the proletariat. It made me think later that he might be a Marxist!” Hulton would tell Corsi, “I had this uncomfortable feeling that he thought he knew about my situation as a working person better than I did, that he knew what was best for me.”
Hulton also recalls one particular conversation with Mary Ayers. “She was enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student that they were helping out,” he tells Corsi, “and she referred to him as a foreign student.” Adds Hulton, “I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him.” Within a year of this conversation, Hulton had a fateful meeting with the young man he presumed Mary was talking about.
According to Hulton, he encountered the fellow on the sidewalk on the front of the Ayers home. In that it was extremely rare to see a black man in this tony neighborhood, Hulton believes that the man felt the need to explain his visit to the Ayers household. Hulton describes him as friendly and neatly, although casually, dressed. Hulton tells Corsi, “I am absolutely positive that it was Barack Obama.”
Hulton was sympathetic. After he had come out of military service, he was a supporter of Martin Luther King, who had pressed for fair housing in the Chicago area in the 1960s. “I took some flak about my support for civil rights from my fellow workers at the time,” remembers Hulton.
Obama explained to Hulton that he had taken the train out from Chicago to Glen Ellyn in order “to thank the Ayers family personally for helping him with his education.” What shocked Hulton was that when casually inquiring into the young man’s plans for the future, Obama answered, “I am going to be president of the United States.” As Hulton tells Corsi, “[i]t came across like this was something that’s already been determined.” Adds Hulton, “I was speechless.”
Hulton told Diamond and Corsi essentially the same story. What gives the Corsi interview added value is that we see Hulton tell it. Although just a year older than Bill Ayers, he seems to come from a different generation. He has little to gain — and a lot to risk — by going public. Corsi warns Hulton that by quoting Mary’s comment that Obama was a “foreign student,” he has put himself at some risk. Says Hulton, “I am only telling you what I distinctly remember her saying — that he was a foreign student.”
Hulton’s interviews with Diamond and Corsi are consistent in every major detail save for dates. Hulton suggested to Diamond that the sidewalk meeting took place in the mid-’80s, but Corsi suggests to Hulton that it was in the early 1990s, and Hulton does not correct him. Hulton clearly does not remember the date. If I were to speculate, I would guess 1988, the year Obama started Harvard Law School. Presuming Hulton actually met Obama, the “education” in question would almost surely have been law school.
There is a good deal at stake here. According to Snopes and the other fact-check sites, Bill Ayers and Obama did not meet until the mid-1990s. This is a talking point that both Ayers and Obama have upheld. When Ayers appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America in 2008, he put the date of their first meeting in 1995 at a fundraiser in Ayers’s own home. “I think he was probably in 20 homes that day as far as I know,” said Ayers. “But that was the first time I really met him.”
As it happens, I stumbled into my own discovery of Ayers’s involvement in the writing of Obama’s 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, when I was investigating how Obama got into Harvard Law School and who paid his way. What had piqued my interest was an interview with veteran New York power-broker Percy Sutton on a local New York City show called Inside City Hall. The interview took place in late March 2008 but did not surface until August 2008.
Sutton told how twenty years prior he had been “introduced to [Obama] by a friend.” The friend’s name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, “the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men.” The billionaire in question was Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. According to Sutton, al-Mansour had asked him to “please write a letter in support of [Obama] … a young man that has applied to Harvard.” Sutton had friends at Harvard and gladly did so.
A few months before the election, it should have mattered that a respected black political figure like Sutton had publicly announced that a fanatic black separatist, backed by an ambitious Saudi billionaire, had been guiding Obama’s career perhaps for the last twenty years. It did to the Obama-friendly media, but not in a way in which it would have to real journalists. Moving in swiftly to kill the story were Politico, an insider D.C. journal run by Washington Post alums, and Media Matters for America, an alleged watchdog group founded by the recovering Troopergate author, David Brock.
Ben Smith, then of Politico, took the lead. Shortly after the story broke, Smith ran the disclaimer that “Barack Obama’s campaign is flatly denying a story told by former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton.” After some conspicuous waffling, al-Mansour denied the story as well. A self-appointed “spokesman for Sutton’s family” by the name of Kevin Wardally sent an e-mail to Smith that read in part: “As best as our family and the Chairman’s closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.”
For Smith, even though Wardally had gotten Sutton’s age wrong by two years, this e-mail was proof enough that Sutton’s highly specific claim was manufactured. Wrote Smith, Wardally’s e-mail “seems to put the story to rest for good.” Media Matters, meanwhile, scolded those conservative bloggers who did not accept the various denials at face value.
Like the man about to be carted away in Monty Python’s Holy Grail, the Percy Sutton story was not quite dead yet. Sutton’s son and daughter told conservative reporter Ken Timmerman that no one in their family even knew who Kevin Wardally was, let alone authorized him to speak on behalf of the family. “I’m getting better,” pled Monty Python’s nearly dead man. No, he wasn’t. Nor was this story. With Hillary out of the race, no newsroom in America felt compelled to dig up dirt that could sully Obama.
About that time, I found a diary entry that caught my attention. Radical-turned-actor Peter Coyote entered it at the time of the 1996 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Coyote wrote, “I inform Martha that I’m dragging her to the apartment of old friends, ex-Weathermen, Bernadine [sic] Dohrn and Bill Ayers, hosting a party for Senator Leahy. Perhaps Edward Said will be there.”
Said had taught Obama at least one class at Columbia. I had earlier seen a photo taken during an Arab-American community dinner in Chicago in 1998 on the fiftieth anniversary of the Palestinian nakba, or disaster. The photo shows Obama sitting next to Said, seemingly engaged in an animated conversation at dinner. The intimacy surprised me. At the time of the photo, Obama was an obscure state senator while Said, according to the Nation, was “probably the best-known intellectual in the world” and the star of that evening’s show. He would speak on this occasion, as the Los Angeles Times would later report, “against settlements, against Israeli apartheid.”
All of this got me to wondering whether an Ayers-Obama-Said-al-Mansour cabal had formed in the early 1980s back in New York City. If so, such a combine might have generated enough momentum to push Obama’s career along. To see if Obama and Ayers had crossed paths before Chicago, I ordered a copy of Bill Ayers’ 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days. It was then that I began to realize the depth of Ayers’s involvement in Obama’s rise to power.
Obama would have needed help to get into Harvard. Friendly biographer David Remnick tells us that Obama was an “unspectacular” student in his two years at Columbia and at every stop before that going back to grade school. A Northwestern University professor, John L. McKnight, although a friend of Obama’s and a fellow Alinskyite, reinforces the point, telling Remnick, “I don’t think [Obama] did too well in college.” As to Obama’s LSAT scores, Jimmy Hoffa’s body will be unearthed before those are.
How such an indifferent student got into a law school whose applicants’ LSAT scores typically track between the 98th and the 99th percentile and whose GPAs range between 3.80 and 4.00 is a subject the media have chosen not to explore. Nor have they asked how Obama paid for that education. Maybe it is time they ask the mailman.

By Peggy Knutson
I’ve been in a funk lately. Some people seem to think I’m merely a figment of a
social media site. Some people think I’m just a joke. Let me be clear, I am neither a
figment nor a joke.
My name is Harrison J. Bounel and I share the Social Security Number of one of
the most powerful men in the world, whom I shall refer to only as “The Other One”. I
am, however, a mystery, an enigma, a ghost. Who is the man behind this mask? Who am
I and where did I come from? What are my secrets? Those are the things I deliberately
I will, however, tell you the truth. I promise I will. But let me warn you, I lie. But
not every word is a lie. It will be like walking through a minefield. Or like catching a
butterfly without crushing it. Or like herding cats. All at the same time.
This is the Truth. The world is made up of two kinds of people. The people who
are real and who are powerful. And the people who aren’t. The people who exist and
those who don’t. The Other One never intended to be one of the latter. What he has done
best in life is manipulate the wormhole between the two.
The wormhole. Even now I hear you snickering at my use of the word
“wormhole”. I hear you whispering the names of The Other One’s alleged lovers, past
and present. Remember, the wormhole is a means to an ends and the ends justify the
means. If you happen to find it enjoyable, so much the merrier.
The wormhole is man’s country, populated with men who, in exchange for the attentions of an exotic
young man, will fill your pockets with money and your head with ideas. These men will lubricate the
wormhole and allow you to escape the Black Hole of those-who-do-not-exist and
penetrate the White Hole of Those Who Exist. And once you have turned the heads of
Those Who Exist, the worm is turned. You can twist the wormhole to your own
I, Harrison J. Bounel, was spawned from the wormhole.
I’m sure that sounds very philosophical, but believe me, it is actually very
practical. It’s really as down-to-earth as Chicago-style dirty tricks, political payoffs, and
ordinary blackmail. Only The Other One had much grander plans than Chicago City Hall.
But the incestuous cesspool of Chicago was a good place to start.
Not for the first time or the last, The Other One had need of a scrubbed and rescrubbed
identity in Chicago. You ask when I was spawned? Was it after he arrived in
Chicago for the first time or was it prior to diving into that cesspool? Did The Other One
need a “clean” Social Security Number when he applied to Harvard Law, or was being
classified a “foreign” student still to his advantage? Did he need to invent transcripts
from Columbia? Perhaps, you say, The Other One needed an American identity to apply
for the Illinois Bar or for his run for the Illinois State Senate. If I tell you the exact
moment of my creation, would you believe me? Does it matter? Chicago has a way of
convoluting the wormhole.
The Other One arrived in Chicago in 1985 after living in New York City for four
years. He became a “community organizer” for the Developing Communities Project
funded by the Woods Fund. The Woods Fund was founded by the Woods family which
owned the Sahara Coal Company, a major supplier of coal to major Illinois power
was Thomas Ayers, father of Bill Ayers.
(I see you are rereading that last paragraph, your lips are moving. A coal company
and an electric company were his benefactors? But doesn’t The Other One seek to
destroy coal companies and electric companies? Ah, such is the nature of the wormhole.)
Bill Ayers, 1960’s radical bomber, former fugitive, and son of billionaire Thomas
Ayers, returned to his home in Chicago after surfacing from the underground in 1981 and
attending colleges in New York City, including Columbia, until 1987. In 1987, he
established the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools. also funded by the Woods Fund. The
Other One worked closely with Ayers’ new organization before leaving Chicago to go to
Harvard Law School in 1989.
(Had I been spawned yet? Had a man with years of experience living underground
as a fugitive help spawn me? Had one fellow traveler aided another? At what point did
their paths first cross? So much is lost in the labyrinth of the wormhole.)
When The Other One returned to Chicago in 1991, he was hired by Sidley Austin
Law Firm. Sidley Austin, a consulting firm for Thomas Ayers and Commonwealth
Edison, also employed Bernardine Dorhn, 1960’s radical and wife of Bill Ayers, Valerie
Jarrett, and Michelle Robinson. Valerie Jarrett left to work for Daley’s City Hall and
brought Michelle Robinson with her. (That is a wormhole for a different day.)
By 1995, The Other One had became politically active in Chicago. He was taken
under the wing of Alice Palmer, black activist, communist sympathizer, and Illinois State
Senator. The 1960’s radicals, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorhn, now scrubbed and clean,
upstanding, but non-repentant, members of the community, held a political “coming-out”
party for The Other One in their home.
(Oh, the questions that arise. How much did the former radicals actually help The
Other One? Did they see in him a kindred spirit or a blank slate or a means to their own
ends? Did Bill Ayers write the book which catapulted The Other One’s career, intending
to advance his own causes? Who was spinning whom? Did the worm turn? Ah, more
Alice Palmer designated The Other One as the heir apparent for her state senate
seat and he entered the race. When Alice Palmer lost her bid for a U. S. congressional
seat against Jesse Jackson, Jr., she asked The Other One to withdraw from the race for
her former senate seat. He refused. She filed to run anyway. The Other One challenged
her petition and had her eliminated from the ballot. (Such is nature of the wormhole. The
ends always justify the means.)
In 2004, The Other One was anxious to rise to a national platform. (Or were the
lubricators of the wormhole getting impatient? It is hard to tell the difference. Such is the
nature of the wormhole.) He ran for U. S. Senate against Jack Ryan. Strangely,
previously sealed court records detailing Ryan’s messy divorce were made public. Ryan
withdrew from the race and a last minute challenger, Alan Keyes, was soundly defeated
by The Other One. The rest, as they say, is history.
(So, why was I necessary? When and why was I created? What secrets are hidden
by my identity? What are the ambitions and aspirations of The Other One that they must
Let me return to the metaphor of White Holes and Black Holes. In the cosmos, a
White Hole is a region of spacetime which cannot be entered from the outside, but from
which light may escape. It is the reverse of a Black Hole which sucks in everything in its
proximity, but from which nothing, including light, can escape. Only a wormhole can
provide escape from a Black Hole and entrance to a White Hole.
As the spawn of the wormhole, one who can see the Black Hole of those-who-donot-
exist and the White Hole of Those Who Exist, I can tell you our goal is to banish as
many as possible from the state of free matter and energy to the inescapable Black Hole
from which they can only behold the brightness of the White Hole and believe that it
shines for them. We seek to enlarge the Black Hole so those who have been hovering at
the cusp of the abyss disappear into its nothingness. We extol “sharing and fairness”,
twisting the definitions of “share” and “fair” to our own terms. The White Hole must
share its light so that the Black Hole may have light. And we seek to have those in the
Black Hole blame those in the White Hole for their darkness. We seek to pit those-whodo-
not-exist against Those Who Exist.
If The Other One has appeared detached or bored, it is only because he cannot
reveal his true face yet and must wear a mask. He cannot revel in his accomplishments
yet. (Such is the nature of the wormhole.)
And I, Harrison J. Bounel, simply play the buffoon to distract you. So, I ask you
now, do you still think I am merely a figment or a joke?
