Do you know your president

Written by a female Obama supporter who voted for him for president.

Legitimate Questions
This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. I voted for Obama. McCain was a Washington insider and we don’t need any more of them. I have changed my mind three times, since then. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with. I started thinking "where does all the money come from for President Obama"? I have four daughters, who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans. I started looking into Obama's history for my own peace of mind.
Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental; he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. "Barry" (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan. During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a "round the world" trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia, next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate's family, then off to Africa to visit his father's family.

My question - Where did he get the money for this trip? Neither I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they were in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York. It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barrack - not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It's not cheap to say the least. My girls asked me; where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe it’s none of my business?

After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000 a year. Why Chicago? Why not New York? He was already living in New York. By "chance" he met Antonio "Tony" Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria, and a real estate developer in Chicago. Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery several times in the past and in 2011. Rezko, was named "Entrepreneur of the Decade" by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association". About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School. Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans? His family has no money that’s for sure.

After Law school, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what I discovered? They represented "Rezar" which is Rezko's firm. Rezko was one of Obama's first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with "seed money" for his U.S. Senate race.

In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans - Where did he get the money for this property? On the same day Rezko's wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama's new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett was Michele Obama's boss. She is now Obama's chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Am I going nuts or is there a pattern here?

On May 10, 2008, The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was "sacked" after the press found out he was having regular contacts with "Hamas", which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama's visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will "Take care of things". What the heck does that mean?

Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that were born in Pakistan? They are in charge of all those "small" Internet campaign contributions for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East?

And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2009, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, "My Muslim faith". When questioned, "he made a mistake". Some mistake huh?

All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it - Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barrack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times - Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times - September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

Now the BIG question - If I found out all this information on my own, Why haven't all of our "intelligent" members of the press been reporting this? Is this a Kettle of Fish??

As Arsenio Hall would say.----"HUMMMMMMM! Does something stink or is it my imagination?" These are legitimate questions for our president.

  1. WHY is the question - do we know so little about the current president?

  2. This email is just another "president-hater" listing a bunch of lies and innuendos.
    Readers of such emails should really check the claims at an unbiased website such as factcheck.org or http://www.snopes.com/ , before fowarding and making such claims themselves.

    1. Dear Anonymous aka George Soros's Hacker
      Because factcheck'org is one of several pro obama sites funded by George Soros and other left wingers. wwww.snopes.com has a subtle but strong bias against Conservatives, Christians and Constitutional Supporters and a strong bias for Left Wing Socialist, Progressives and Communist.

    2. So when the fact checkers say the story is false they are biased? Even if true, that does not mean they are WRONG!

      The ID card from Columbia University is a FAKE. Those type of cards were not in use when Obama was there (81-83). They did not start using those type of cards until 1996.

    3. "Why bother checking with factcheck.org or snopes? Both are notoriously unreliable"

      Got any evidence for your claim? Can you point out one single fact they got wrong? If you can, tell them about it so they can correct it. If they don't, then you can call them 'biased'.

      "It's documented that Obama secured millions of dollars in earmarks to help fund and support Snopes."
      Really? Where is it 'documented'? I'm sure the Mikkelsons would like to know about it, they haven't seen a penny.

      Smearing the fact checkers just because they expose all the made up bullshit you guys spread around the web is the lowest of the low!

      It is also a clear logical fallacy, "ad hominem": attacking the person instead of the argument.

      "Factcheck.org is also an unreliable, liberally biased affiliate of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge."
      FactCheck.org, does receive funding from the Annenberg Foundation, but is in no way connected to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which finished its work long before FactCheck.org was created in late 2003.

      Please don't let the FACTS hit you in the ass on your way out the door....

    4. If you think a websites bias against christianity makes it unreliable, then you are a moron. Christianity is just an adult fairytale for the masses intended to control people without free thought or morals. Just shut up and enjoy your fried chicken and Type II diabetes.

  3. Why bother checking with factcheck.org or snopes? Both are notoriously unreliable!

    Snopes, routinely cited by many as the final word on both frivolous and important stories, is not the well-staffed think tank of researchers, journalists and computer hacks one might expect – but rather, the work of David and Barbara Mikkelson, who live in a Los Angeles suburb. The sources they use routinely include the person(s) and/or organization(s) they're investigating - hardly what one could call balanced research. As a senator, it's documented that Obama secured millions of dollars in earmarks to help fund and support Snopes. While not absolutely proving their liberal alliance, it does give one reason to be concerned about the Mikkelson's objectiveness.

    Factcheck.org is also an unreliable, liberally biased affiliate of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. It is owned and funded by the Annenberg Foundation. as stated on its website banner. Barack Obama, was the first chairman for the Annenberg Chicago Challenge, part of the Annenberg Foundation, along with another board member, Bill Ayers, a known terrorist. Does this alone make them biased? Probably not, but it's reason for concern.

    The bottom line is the use of any fact checking website should be only to gather as much information as possible. People should learn to use critical thinking to arrive at their own conclusion and not blindly accept the statements of any website!

    2. Do you know what passport he used to travel to Pakistan since the State Dept. had placed that Country off limits for Americans to travel there???
      Can you find a US Passport for Obama?? Not if Obamas lawyers know your looking for it.

  5. I just decided to take one single item and fact check it. The "My Muslim faith" was taken out of context when the President was talking about how people in the McCain campaign were trying to vilify him by talking about, as he said, "my Muslim faith" when he is actually a Christian. I even quickly found a link that showed the entire discussion with George Stephanopoulos, and it is clear that Obama did not refer to himself as a Muslim. The Washington Times even published a retraction.

  6. Instead of trying to demonize the sources...why not answer the questions raised? Where did Obama get money to travel; why did he go away from Occidental and come back with the resources for Columbia and Harvard and why are a disproportionate number of his friends from the Middle East?

    1. Great question. Why does someone who asks a question about "Barack Obama" suddenly become an Imbecile, racist or right wing crazy? I ask the same questions - where did the money come from? Why is "every thing" Obama did - sealed? Same for his wife Michelle. Mitt Romeny is suppose to release 12 years tax returns, which will reveal nothing new (he is a very rich man)... yet nothing is known about Obama except what is carefully laid out by his handlers. Who originally saw him as the "one" to carry out the socialistic agenda that is taking place. Just asking some questions, is it all that wrong - when considering this is the President of the United States?

    3. I will say that the movie 2016 -he stated that (In his -Mr. Obama's voice) that he found many people WANTED to help him, they wanted to give him money,they wanted to furnish some amenities for him -apparently to assuage many of their conscientiousness's- 2016 may not be factual but it did help me understand some of the "oddities" of his actions and policies.

  10. Don't try to confuse me with facts. Barry has a nice smile so I know he wouldn't lie. I'm going back to sleep now.

  11. ...or, try Politifact. And after hat, go read Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted Workd," for some tips about why you cannot prove a negative (how do you KNOW the sun is not a big fiery dragon? You never went there, did you? AHA!) an generally separating superstition from science.

    Point is, this is a completely bogus Internet e-mail, whose claims have been exposed as complete nonsense about fifty times...and that the proof of nonsense is easily available, well documented, and completely clear.

    So why not just look it up? And that is a real question...what would be the motive for believing obvious fairy tales, when it is so easy to find he evidence that they're fairy tales? Why cling to absurdity, when here are plenty of reasons to argue against the President's policies and actions and the general direction of the country?

  12. The good doctor should be asking Romney questions re the "here and now"---like Romney's alleged off-shore band accounts to avoid taxes.

    I love this: "a disproportinate number of friends are Muslim"
    (paraphrase, actually). Who counted the president's friends?
    How many did he have? How do you get "proportion" without knowing how many friends he does have?

    Is it possible the Muslim students were more accepting and Christ-like in accepting a black/biracial student than the white students? Perhaps they were black?

    The doctor is an educated person...perhaps instead of "wondering" so much, she should do some research. Or perhaps the rest of us should be contacting her and asking if she indeed authored this.

    1. Aw there it is. I knew it would be only a matter of time before Anon would resort to the distraction technique that's been so effective the past 4 yrs. In other words, it's not ok to question why there's been a lack of substantive analysis re: Obama's background. Forget the noes breathing conspirasy nuts, but focus as you said, the here and now, first: why are all of Obama's college records sealed? Why can not one "investigative" reporter find ANY paper he wrote while in college or law school? Why are his finances not scrutinized in greater detail, particularly his dealings with Rezko? Let's face it, you libs excoriate Romney for having, wait for it, an off shore account, which is LEGAL! For taking advantage of tax laws to lower his taxable income, which is LEGAL. All we've been asking for is equity in the line and type of questioning our candidates receive vs. yours - even those on the moderate left have acknowledged this disparity.

    2. I don't care about seeing Mr. Romney's taxes. I am sure that he paid what he was required to pay. I also believe that he tithed money to his church. I know many people that try to pay as little taxes as they can required by law- so, don't put that stupid little "let's see his taxes" by a candidate rather than see some of the information about the current president.period. (by the way, I believe that he probably did make a really good salary or received dividends, etc. and I am glad that he is monied for this race!)

  13. ha ha Have you even read the Snopes.com explanation? Ninety percent it is just fairy taile explanation by the Obamas. Gee, must be true, cuz Obama says it is. Maybe you should try some fact checking yourself, like go to the Wiki sites and validate the the info for yourself.

    1. I believe that much needs to be researched and exposed on Obama. I am not a supporter, and do believe something criminal is afoot, or at the least - treasonous against our constitution.

      But please don't cite Wikipedia as an authoritative source. Granted, sometimes Wikipedia can have some interesting material, but in a matter as important as this, do you not think that any Wikipedia page is going to say exactly what benefits the subject? If it doesn't, you can bet that the page will soon be edited to 'correct the mistakes'. Try as it might, Wikipedia (the site) is not unbiased, because the people that have access to and can easily edit Wikipedia (you and I and everyone with a computer) are not unbiased.

  15. This is a card trick. Snopes looked into this and found it a forgery:
    http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/studentid.asp

    I can't believe people can be so gullible to believe this or pass it on to others.

    The image displayed here of a purported 1981 Columbia University student ID card identifying Barack Obama as a "foreign student" named "Barry Soetoro" is a hoax.

    The ID card pictured is not a real Columbia University student ID issued to Barack Obama (under any name), nor does it reflect the appearance of student ID cards used by that institution during the time Barack Obama was a student there from 1981-83. The digital ID card format shown here wasn't introduced at Columbia until 1996. (http://www.columbia.edu/cu/record/archives/vol21/vol21_iss15/record2115.14.html).

    This image is merely an altered version of a Columbia University ID card issued to another student in 1998. Compare the bogus card number (it's the same number) to that of student Thomas Lugert in the Snopes.com article.

    The letter claims to be written by a supporter who voted for Obama for president and regrets her vote. But this item was written before the 2008 election. Where the Obamas got their money for the expenses mentioned in this letter is easy to find in the public records and in published materials. If you'd like to see the facts about this version of the fantasy letter purportedly written by Rachelle Derrough, see the empirical information at http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/money.asp

    1. Facts aside, citing Snopes, or any other 'fact-checking' site is not authoritative. You wrote "...mentioned in this letter is easy to find in the public records and in published materials..." I am assuming you are referring to sources other than snops and so on. It would have been better to leave Snopes out of it and cite those public records, etc., instead.

      I do not support Obama, and I think there is something criminal, if not treasonous with this Presidency...but I wouldn't refer to Snopes as authoritative on anything, even if it supports my argument.

  17. I don't know why his college records are sealed (at very great expense to Obama) and don't really care. What I'm concerned about (and everyone...even liberals should be) is that Obama is taking the country down the tubes with a socialistic agenda. All of you who say Capitalism is bad are morons. Get up off the couch, quit smoking pot, learn to say more than "dude", get a real education (liberal arts majors don't count as real) get your head out of your ass and accomplish something real! I know. It's so much easier to complain about the rich, that they don't pay their fair share, blah, blah, blah. Right? What you really mean is that you're too lazy and stupid to accomplish anything. It's your idealistic views that are fairy tales! Governments produce nothing! Obama doesn't care one bit about you, he only wants to control you. Why you would want to see the greatest country that ever existed become a 3rd rate power is beyond me.

  18. Any President of mine would be proud of his American heritage. He would be angry if anyone questioned his citizenship and would be MORE than willing to show the path of his life as an AMERICAN! He would embrace the liberty that our ancestors fought and gave their lives for. He would embrace our flag with respect. His agenda would be to build up America for Americans, not illegals! He would never bow to another leader. My president would be interested in empowering individuals to keep growing entrepreneurship, which has been the foundation of this great country. He would want those who were not contributing, to get up and better themselves to make a difference for their coming generations.

    The person currently in ruining MY country is not MY president. Whether the things in the email are accurate or not doesn't really matter. The point is Obama is cloak and dagger. He isn't proud to be an American and we have all these questions because he HAD to hide is past in order the take office. WHY are so many of you blinded? WHY isn't the secrecy a giant red flag for you??????
