It is well known that Obama supposedly attended Columbia University for his supposed last year of undergraduate studies. However, the name used for the financial aid that he reportedly received has been an unanswered question until now. There can be no denying that Obama used a different name to obtain monies reserved for foreign students to pay for his tuition to Columbia University back in the 80’s when was supposedly an undergraduate student.
In October of 2011 I was conducting one of my daily database searches for any information relating to Obama and his alter identities such as his other last name of Soetoro. I discovered an anomaly using the database information that was pulled when I used the last name of Soetoro in and for the state of New York. The following exhibits are the items that were pulled when the searches were completed.
Exhibit 1 shows the database pull that details two names, one for a Barack Soetoro and the other is for Barack’s sister Maya K Soetoro.
Please note the name of the first person in this particular search. The first name is Barack and the last name is Soetoro. This is the name that “Obama” was using when he was a child living in Indonesia. Now, when he returned to the United States and began living in HI he started using the name of Obama, but secretly he was using his legal last name of Soetoro as of his tenure as a student at Columbia University.
Exhibit 2 details the search that I completed using Barack Obama’s name in and for the state of NY.
The significance of these two searches is that the result shown in (exhibit 1) was the first search completed which lead me to complete the second search detailed in (exhibit 2) which I completed using Obama individually as the search for the state of NY. The information that pulled was Barack Obama linked to the same address as Barack Soetoro. This address is 2960 Broadway, New York, NY 10027. Now, why is this significant? Here is why this information is so significant.
I completed a search on the Columbia University website using the address 2960 Broadway and what pulled up in the search was this information in the search results on page 2:
Exhibit 3 below is in the from of a PDF file that I downloaded from Columbia University and it details the process for permanent residents wishing to obtain a social security number through Columbia University.
In order to obtain funding, permanent residents must obtain a number to apply for financial aid and or seek employment. Now it is not known whether or not Obama had a job or not while attending Columbia University, but documentation was required for financial aide. So did he Soetoro / Obama obtain a SSN using the alias of Barack Soetoro through the International Scholars and Students Office?
International Scholars and Students Office:
Office & Courier Address: 524 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10027
Mailing Address: Mail Code 5724 2960 Broadway New York, NY 10027 212-854-3587 Fax 212-851-12350
The following excerpt is from a PDF that dictates how registered foreign student status is handled at Columbia University:
J-1 Exchange Visitor Status
– There are many categories of
J-1, including a student category. To be eligible for the J-1
student category, over half of your funding must come from a
source other than your personal or family funds. Common
sources of funding for EVs include funding from a government,
international organization or university. Students fully funded by
Columbia would be eligible for J-1 status.
Certificate of Eligibility
– This document certifies eligibility for
F-1 or J-1 status. It is presented to the U.S. consulate to apply
for a visa and to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
official when you enter the U.S. The Certificate of Eligibility is
also referred to as the Visa Certificate, I-20 (for F-1 status), or
DS-2019 (for J-1 status). Students are eligible for the Visa
Certificate if they have been admitted to Columbia University,
will study in F-1 or J-1 status, and have documented their ability
to finance their education.
– The I-20 is a form issued by Columbia University for use
in applying for the F-1 visa and entering the United States. The
I-20 is issued to admitted students who have shown proof of
their ability to finance their academic program. It includes your
biographical details and information on your source of funding
and academic program. You must keep all I-20s that are issued
to you. It is recommended that you also keep a copy of all I-20s
for your records.
– The I-94 is a small white card that records your legal
entry in to the U.S., your immigration status, and how long you
can stay in the U.S. You complete it before seeing the
immigration officer who processes it and gives you a portion of
the form that s/he usually staples in your passport. The I-94
also records your arrivals and departures. Each time you leave
the U.S., the I-94 is removed (unless you are traveling to
Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean). You receive a new one
each time you enter the U.S. For as long as you are studying,
you must have an I-94 that shows you are in either F-1 or J-1
status. Though the I-94 does not look important, it is one of the
most important documents you have. It is recommended that
you make a photocopy of both sides of the form each time you
get a new one in the event that your original form is lost or
What student status and what forms did Barack Soetoro use at Columbia University?
In February of 2010, someone had to have accessed the records of Barack Soretoro at Columbia University and altered them therefore creating the imputed data creating the file for Barack Obama on the same day of February 2010 so as to produce the results obtained by me as of October of 2011.
I challenge anyone to disprove my findings. We will have to open the records and examine them completely so as to disprove my findings and get to the truth once and for all.

Rachel Maddow Examines Claim Obama Is Secretly Gay
By On Top Magazine Staff Published: September 15, 2012
Rachel Maddow on Friday examined Jerome Corsi’s new conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama is secretly gay.
On her MSNBC The Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow told viewers that Corsi, author of Where’s The Birth Certificate, began promoting the theory after Obama released his long form birth certificate.
Corsi “needed a new reason to get out of bed every morning. And Jerome Corsi has now found one,” Maddow said. “Did you think they would give up on this?”
Maddow shared with her audience Corsi’s supposed evidence.
“It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” Kevin DuJan, who reportedly worked as a gossip columnist in Chicago, is quoted as saying in one of Corsi’s articles published on World Net Daily. “Obama used to go to the gay bars during the week, most often on Wednesday, and they said he was very much into older white guys.”
Corsi also claims that a ring Obama wore while in college must mean he was secretly gay married to his Pakistani roommate.
“Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay. World Net Daily says so,” Maddow said. “Now the president is going to have to unveil his straight certificate –the long form one.”
Influence Explored: Obama’s Bundler List
Earlier this year the Obama campaign released a list of 244 fundraisers who have bundled thousands of dollars in donations to the president’s victory fund. This is an excellent opportunity to use the Sunlight Foundation’s Influence Explorer and Transparency Data tools to dig into the connections and past contributions of these masterful rainmakers.
It’s a veritable rolodex of the rich and powerful across the country – among them you’ll notice a CEO, editor, former politician and even a former lobbyist. Have fun and beware duplicate names in the always imperfect campaign data!
Update: Based on comparisons to the list of bundlers in Obama’s 2008 campaign we found that there are 109 repeat bundlers so far for 2012.
Amount Raised: $50,000-$100,000
Amount Raised: $100,000-$200,000
Amount Raised: $200,000-$500,000
Amount Raised: $500,000+
Thank you to Katie Dixon and Eric Dunn for helping link and research this list.

Investigation reveals numerous bogus claims on Obama resume
As investigators delve further into the background of Barack Obama, a disturbing picture is emerging of a man who is not who he claims to be. The information the public has been told concerning Obama is turning out to be false–fabrications and inventions of a man and an unseen force behind him that had clear ulterior motives for seeking the highest office in the land.
According to a special report issued by ‘the Blogging Professor,’ the Chicago Law School faculty hated Obama. The report states that Obama was unqualified, that he was never a ‘constitutional professor and scholar,’ and that he never served as editor of the Harvard Law Review while a student at the school.
The real truth is that Barack Obama was merely an ‘instructor’ at Chicago Law School, not a professor. Commonly, instructors are non-tenure-track teachers hired by colleges and universities to teach certain courses for a salary that is well below that of Associate Professors or full Professors.
In the hierarchy of higher education, the status of instructors is below that of associate professors and professors because they lack the credentials.
In fact, it can be safely concluded that the claims of Barack Obama concerning his educational credentials and work history in higher education are a complete sham. The President of the United States is a complete fraud.
I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.
The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).
Thus, the question arises, was the claim that Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review a ‘put-up job’ as well, allowing the student to claim he held this prestigious position without having the qualifications or meeting the requirements of holding that position? And why?
Consider this: 1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 possibly to escape charges that he “fibbed” on his bar application.
2. Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993.
3. So, we have the President and First Lady – who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.
4. A senior lecturer is one thing. A fully ranked law professor is another. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, “Obama did NOT ‘hold the title’ of a University of Chicago law school professor”. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago.
5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school, but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.
These are highly disturbing facts, verified facts from the people who know at the Chicago Law School.
There is more from Ross, however:
6. “He did not hold the title of professor of law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.
7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the U.S. Constitution recently during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
8. The B-Cast posted the video.
9. In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in ourConstitution: the notion that we are all created equal.”
10. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech?
When you are a phony it’s hard to keep facts straight.
Obama has made sure that all of his records are sealed tight. And apart from the courageous souls at the various educational institutions who dared to speak the truth, the schools Obama claimed to attend unanimously refuse to release transcripts, records, or other bits of evidence concerning Obama’s presence in their institutions.
BREAKING DEVELOPMENT—just as these disturbing facts come to light about Barack Obama, the White House is busy making deals with numerous ‘journalists,’ promising unprecedented access to the President in exchange for refraining from reporting certain information ‘they may discover.’

Is There An Imposter In The White House? An Excerpt from “Hope Is Not A Strategy”
There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding? Maybe the “birthers” were a little extreme, but is there something wrong with this “manufactured candidate,” whose history remains sealed from public view? What is he hiding?
Could the “Hawaii birth certificate” be a forgery? Is there something much worse—like “sponsorship” by an unnamed special interest? I don’t know. I do know that the man in the White House now is an imposter. The only question is which kind of an imposter: an incompetent “pretender” or a genuine phony, a “Manchurian candidate,” who is a liberal, ½ black and ½ white, and an obvious Muslim sympathizer (despite claims of being a Christian—in clear conflict with his non-Christian behavior).
Will this campaign expose him as the imposter, and the pretender his behavior has revealed? Will it expose his hidden history and murky background. We know about his failures and mistakes.
For those who don’t, here is another in this series of revealing excerpts fromHOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY: Leadership Lessons from the Obama Presidency. The book is now available on http://www.amazon.com in paperback and Kindle versions. Other in e-book versions are available at http://www.smashwords.com.
Excerpt from the chapter: Beware the Pretender: …”No matter how many times President Obama refers to the “problems he inherited,” he has now been in office three years. Certainly many of the current problems can be traced back to events that happened during the eight years that Bush held the top office, and some can be traced back to even earlier presidencies—but far from all of them. Many of the problems are newly created (or made worse), and Barack Obama owns them. Candidate Obama stepped up and essentially said, “I want the job, and everything that comes with it” by running for president. After three years in office, the problems now belong to him and his presidency. He caused them, made them worse, or didn’t solve them. Either way, they are his now. …In leadership, you cannot “pretend” to be a leader. You either are—or you aren’t—a leader. One or the other will become apparent very quickly. If you want the leadership job, you must step up and take full ownership of it. A “pretender” or “poser” is like an actor who has learned all the right lines, but has no idea what they mean. Once the script has been followed (or deviated from), the actor is clueless about what to do next. This is the job of the leader. Unfortunately, in this government, the “directors” often seem clueless, having learned in academia where results and wins/losses are theoretical, or in politics where success (at getting elected) is more a matter of rhetoric than results. If you are not ready for a position, or do not believe that you have what it takes to rise to the challenge (or clean up the mess even if you believe it is not your mess), then do not take the job. This was Barack Obama’s fundamental mistake. He grossly underestimated the difficulty of the position he was running for, and overestimated his preparedness to actually do the job. Just because he could “talk a good game” (thanks to a phalanx of speech writers and the omnipresent teleprompters) does not mean he actually knew what to do or how to do it. The presidency of the United States of America is not a place for heavy OJT (On-the Job-Training)….”
After the first three plus years of the presidency, it is painfully clear that Barack Obama was a “pretty face,” and “glib speaker” and a lightweight liberal politician with a community organizer/radical background. The American people should be outraged at this man’s behavior and even his candidacy. Why are they not? Because of the misinformation delivered by sympathetic liberal/mainstream media who loves his nonsensical form of governing.
…”Obama’s perceived preparedness for the presidency is a terrible delusion, from which it is difficult to escape. Mistakes build upon each other and result in even more complex problems. Difficult problems that are mishandled become even more difficult to fix. When you have too little experience, lack substance (other than the words of your latest speech), then leading, managing and problem solving simply don’t happen. And that is what has occurred. When you compound the problem by surrounding your self with like-minded theorists, lacking in real-world experience, things become worse yet. The theoretical solutions to problems often don’t work due to the messiness of the real world—and the reasons are almost unfathomable to these rookie executive/politicians. …”
What should Americans think about this “imposter?” Will he divulge his true background so we can all see who he is and where he came from—really? If not, is this just a man who should never have been sworn into the office of President in the first place, and who has crippled Americans miserably during his term?
Will we continue to believe his misstatements (the politically correct term for lies)? Can he simply use the media to “erase and forget the past three years of misery and missteps?” Or will we learn from his imperialistic behavior and terrible results and throw him out in November?

And was the young Obama convinced at the time – long before he even entered politics – that he was going to become president of the United States?
A retired U.S. Postal Service carrier who delivered mail to Tom and Mary Ayers in a Chicago suburb in the late 1980s and early 1990s and claims to have met Obama in front of the Ayers home emphatically says yes to all three questions.
Allen Hulton, who was commended for 39 years of honorable service with the USPS, has given a sworn affidavit to investigators commissioned by Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio to determine whether Obama is eligible for Arizona’s 2012 election ballot. Hulton has recorded about three hours of video interviews with WND.
Hulton says that in conversations with Mary Ayers while on his route he learned of the couple’s enthusiasm and support for a black foreign student. One bright, warm Chicagoland day, he recounts, he met the student who fit Mary Ayers’ description in front of the Ayers home in Glen Ellyn, Ill. That young man, Hulton is convinced, was Barack Obama.
Hulton delivered mail to the Ayers, who are both deceased, when he was stationed at the post office in Glen Ellyn, an upper-middle class suburb 25 miles west of downtown Chicago, from late 1986 to 1997. He was a USPS employee from March 28, 1962, through March 30, 2001. (Editor’s note: Although the Ayers family no longer lives there, WND is withholding the Glen Ellyn street address for the sake of the current residents’ privacy.)
“It was a beautiful neighborhood – one of the nicer routes any of the letter carriers would have liked to have had,” Hulton recalls. “It had some large and very beautiful homes.”
As WND reported yesterday, Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers – whom he dismissed in a 2008 debate as “just a guy who lives in my neighborhood” – plagued him in the 2008 presidential campaign and could resurface in this year’s election, as many questions remain.
Over a period of years in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Hulton estimates he spoke with Mary Ayers about 18 to 20 times and once to Tom Ayers, who died in 2007. Mary Ayers died in 2000.
“Sometimes Mary would be out when I delivered the mail, and we would exchange a few words on occasion,” he says, recalling that she liked to talk about her family.
“One day, Mary came to the door when I came up to the house with the mail,” he remembers. “After a greeting, she started enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student they were helping out, and she referred to him as a foreign student.”
Hulton assumed that by “helping” the student, Mary Ayers meant she and her husband were financially supporting the black foreign-exchange student with his education.
See excerpts of Jerome Corsi’s interviews with Allen Hulton:
src=’http://player.ooyala.com/player.swf?embedCode=E0ZGg2NDqsd2ZwNHinIhhgXegZkT00X1&version=2′ bgcolor=’#000000′ width=’525′ height=’295′ name=’ooyalaPlayer_7n2iz_gewtz7xi’ align=’middle’ play=’true’ loop=’false’ allowscriptaccess=’always’ allowfullscreen=’true’ type=’application/x-shockwave-flash’ flashvars=’&embedCode=E0ZGg2NDqsd2ZwNHinIhhgXegZkT00X1′ pluginspage=’http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer’>He says that Mary Ayers told him the student’s name, but that it was a “strange name” that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him.
“I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him,” Hulton says. “And I believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection.”
WND has reported that when Obama was in Indonesia with his Indonesian stepfather and his mother from ages 6 to10, he was registered in school as an Indonesian citizen and a Muslim. He went by the name Barry Soetoro, adopting the surname of his Indonesian stepfather. His mother’s passport listed him with the surname Soebarkah.
Obama refuses to waive privacy rights that would allow the Hawaii Department of Health to release any adoption records that may exist for him.
NOTE: In case you missed the news conference of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse,” you can view it here.
Even should Obama waive privacy rights, the Hawaii Department of Health might not feel compelled to release any adoption records that may exist. Tight restrictions to vital records have been enacted by the Hawaii State Legislature to seal any public documents pertaining to Obama’s birth records and his adoption status.
If Obama were adopted by his Indonesian stepfather, he may have compromised his eligibility to be president, according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, which requires that a president be a “natural-born citizen,” which experts say means having both parents be U.S. citizens.
‘I’m going to be president of the United States’
About a year after discussing with Mary Ayers the foreign student she and her husband were supporting, Hulton recalls meeting a young black male on the sidewalk in front of the Ayers home.
Hulton describes the man as being in his early 20s, noting that he was tall, thin, had a light complexion and that his ears stuck out.
“He greeted me,” Hulton says. “He was very polite, dressed nicely, but informally – slacks and a dress shirt – and he spoke with no accent. Immediately this young black man entered into conversation with me. He told me he had taken the train out from Chicago and had come to thank the Ayers family personally for having helped him with his education.”
Hulton remembers asking the young man what his plans were for the future.
“He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says.
“There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it – he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way,” Hulton says. “It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged.”
Hulton says the claim made him speechless.
“I kind of stuttered a response and said that nowadays anything is possible. I wished him good luck with his ambition,” he says.
Immediately, Hulton associated the young black man with the foreign student Mary Ayers had mentioned to him so enthusiastically about a year earlier.
“I remembered the conversation I had with Mary, and I associated this young man with the foreign student she had discussed with me, because Mary said they were supporting this foreign student, and the young black man I met outside the Ayers’ home said he had come to Glen Ellyn to thank the Ayers in person for helping him with his education.”
During the 2008 presidential campaign, Hulton observed several news reports detailing the relationship between Obama and Bill Ayers, and he recalled the encounter with the young man in front of Tom and Mary Ayers’ home.
“The facial and physical characteristics, as well as candidate Obama’s voice, matched that of the young black male I met in front of the Ayers’ home,” Hulton says in the affidavit he signed Nov. 12, 2011, for Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation.
“I am positive that the black male I spoke with in front of the Ayers’ house that day was indeed a young Barack Obama.”
Hulton distinctly recalls that the day he met Obama in front of the Ayers’ residence was a warm, sunny day and that Obama wasn’t wearing a jacket.
Hulton recalls that he had one conversation with Tom Ayers, who was retired as CEO and chairman of Commonwealth Edison, shortly after the Ayers family moved into their home in Glen Ellyn.
“He asked me how I liked my job, and he started into what seemed to me a Marxist viewpoint on what it is like for the working man, trying to convince me that working people like me were exploited by their employers,” Hulton remembers of the conversation.
“As an American citizen, I appreciated everything I had, and I was not at war with people who had more than I had,” he says. “It surprised me to hear somebody who had been president of Consolidated Edison talking in these terms.”
Hulton says he got the feeling that Tom Ayers thought he knew more about the plight of the workingman than he did.
A likely timeframe for Hulton’s alleged encounter with Obama is the summer of 1989, when Obama was an intern at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin, after his first year at Harvard Law School.
Hulton says Obama mentioned to him taking the train. The Metra, a commuter from downtown Chicago, stops at a Glen Ellyn station a little more than a mile from the Ayers’ residence.
Michelle Robinson, Obama’s wife-to-be, was the attorney at the firm assigned to mentor Obama in the summer of 1989.
Bill Ayers’ wife, Bernardine Dohrn, also had worked as a paralegal at Sidley Austin, from 1984 through 1988. Dohrn’s 1960s radical activities as a self-described “revolutionary communist” landed her on the FBI’s list of 10 most wanted fugitives, and because of her felony conviction, she was not allowed to take the Illinois bar exam.
Widely speculated in Chicago is that Dohrn got the job at Sidley Austin through the influence of her father-in-law, Thomas Ayers, who was one of the law firm’s biggest clients.
Michelle Obama started at the firm in the summer of 1988 and remained there until 1991.
Hulton recalls meeting Dohrn at the home of her in-laws, although his encounters with her were limited to having Dohrn sign for mail addressed to her.
First reported in 2009
Hulton’s account of meeting Obama in suburban Chicago was first reported by California lawyer and political scientist Stephen Diamond in September 2009.
Writing on his blog, Diamond reported that he had interviewed Hulton at length and considered his account credible.
“The statement by Hulton is the first eyewitness account of a possible relationship between Obama and Tom Ayers and the first that dates his relationship with the Ayers family to the mid-1980s,” Diamond wrote.
As early as Oct. 13, 2008, prior to the November 2008 presidential election, Diamond had reported that Obama’s relationship with the Ayers family dated back to 1988. At that time, Obama, as head of the Developing Communities Project, joined the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, the ABCs Coalition. The lobbying alliance aimed to push through Chicago public schools the creation of “Local School Councils,” or LSCs, to oversee teachers and administrators.
“The proposal was very controversial, and groups like Operation PUSH headed by Jesse Jackson did not support it, because many teachers were black – it was one of the first stable middle class careers a black person, and black women in particular, could aspire to in Chicago,” Diamond wrote.
Tom Ayers and Bill Ayers were strong supporters of the LSCs, however, according to Diamond, and Chicago United, a group founded by Tom Ayers, joined ABCs too. Bill Ayers became chairman of ABCs.
Knew Ayers’ brother
Hulton was in the same class as Tim Ayers, Bill Ayers’ brother, at Glenbard High School in Glen Ellyn. Although he did not know Bill Ayers, Hulton thought he might have met him at the parents’ home once or twice, but he could not say for certain.
Hulton attended Glenbard, now known as Glenbard West, for four years, but did not have enough credits to graduate. He later earned a GED while in military service. Taking leave from the USPS when he was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1965, Hulton returned to work as a mailman following his honorable discharge in 1967.
While in the Army, he was assigned to a Pershing Ballistics Missile unit in Germany. Although the Vietnam War was being fought at the time, he was never assigned to Vietnam.
