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 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? Nether 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 Barack – not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia ? It’s not cheap to say the least.
Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans?

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 Antoin “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 who were born in Pakistan ? They are in charge of all those “small” Internet campaign contribution 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?
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.

      • Funny how this thing supposedly “written by a woman who supported Obama for president” keeps making the rounds of birther sites, but I can’t find any record of where it originally appeared. Perhaps you can help, Dusty?

  1. This information HAS been sourced: drones simply do not understand objective reality…until it hits them at 60 mph. Then the “grown ups” have to clean up the mess they make on the windshield. Most times – if history is any judge – that mess comes in the form of tens and even HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of dead innocents – killed in the name of “saving” mankind from Capitalism (or whatever else the LEFT WING EXTREMIST loons are pushing as their excuse to take over the world).

    GOOD POST, Dusty.

  2. Why the hello did the good doctor vote for him? Must’ve been principle….sound familiar?…………B.??!!

    I always assumed his grandparents footed the bill (that and affirmative action) I can’t really buy into the whole college roomate thingy, but perhaps I’m a bit antisocial (In other words, I can neither recall their names nor tell you where they were from.)

  3. Ah, this one again? This has been floating around the internet, with different claims of authorship, for well over a year.

    So lets see. Obama received both scholarships, and student loans to pay his tuition. It is a matter of record that it was revenue from his two books that allowed both Obamas to finally pay off their college loans.

    Despite the claims there is no evidence he made a “round the world” trip in 81. He went to Indonesia to see his mother and (half) sister, then stopped in Pakistan to visit his friends. There is no evidence he went to Africa at that time or any where else.

    Why chicago? Well as he explains quite clearly in his book he had no luck finding employment in organizing in NY and was about to give up on that line of work when he received a job offer from Chicago based activist Jerry Kellman – who had posted ads in the NY Times.

    And the Rezko nonsense again. So let’s see- where did he get the money? In 2005 the Obamas combined income was over 1.5 million. The following year just under a million. And seriously? They paid “less then the asking price?)I have never known anyone who paid the “Asking price” for a home, or anyone who set the asking price at the price they expected to get for it.

    The “my muslim faith” nonsense. Have you ever seen the full clip? He is stating the fact that McCain has not been part of repeating the lie that Obama is a muslim.

    And yes- Jarrett was born in Iran, in 1956. To American parents. Where her father, a pathologist and geneticist, was head of a hospital. She lived there until she was 5 before the family moved to London, then Chicago.

    Robert Malley? Who had served in the Clinton administration? Who had no formal role in Obamas campaign other then offering advice? Who worked for “the international crisis Group” an international NGO, and as he himself put it (to paraphrase) is reguarly in contact with people both savory and unsavory” and that further he has no control over who he is in contact with- it’s the bosses decision”

    Ok- I probably missed reputting a few of these claims but you get the picture- and enough time has been wasted on this fake email.

  4. Let me see . . . . The first implication of this post is that Barry got his first funding (for Columbia) from contacts in Pakistan or India. Then he apparently got funds from Tony Rezco, a convicted criminal from Syria. Rezco was a “major financial contributor” to Obama’s first campaign where he ran for “office” (not sure which “office”) yet he borrowed $3.5 million from an Iraqi born billionaire Nadhmi Auchi which (supposedly) was used to buy Obama’s home and Rezco’s wife’s adjoining property. Oooookay.
    Now we have Obama’s wife’s boss (Valerie Jarrett) suddenly promoted to an Obama adviser and she is from Iraq, all of Obama’s Pakistani roommates are running internet campaign sites (damn Pakistanis are great on computers), and we are led to believe (speculation) that this campaign money is coming from the Middle East. Then Obama slips and admits he is a Muslim while talking to that non-partisian, fair-minded “news reporter” George Stephanopoulous.
    Do I have that right?

    • Yup I think you got it correct.

      Actually, Valarie is black (so is her mother) and her father ran a children’s hospital in Iran when she was born. Her mother was an educator. Her father said he was fed up with his lack of opportunities in the states. Both of her parents were born and raised right here in the good ol US of A.

  5. If Frank’s the daddy, then your “not natural born citizen” theory goes away.

    So, I would think, you wouldn’t want Frank to be his father, if you’re a birther. You would want Lolo to be. Or if you believe Frank is, you should abandon any theory that he’s not a citizen. You either are or you aren’t.

    Frank would have been in his late 50’s, almost 60, when Obama was born and his mom about 21.

    “I always assumed his grandparents footed the bill (that and affirmative action)”
    So disappointed…SMH.

      • kells – Nothing would please me more than to see Oblamer outed and discredited, but to quote Cuba Gooding in “Jerry McGuire” – – “Show me the money!!”” or in this case, the Kenyan birth certificate. When that happens I will rejoice. The Libs, the Dems, the Progressives, and a number of other borderline nut groups will lose all credibilty, but until I see it, this is just all birther speculation, rumors, and innuendo. By the way, what other man is being forced to put his hand on the table? Oblamer has put a valid birth certificate on the table. When it is PROVED to be fraudulent, let me know.

      • No one should be forced to do anything. Obviously, you don’t remember the big deal democrats made about where McCain was born.

          • kells – Do you remember the debacle with the Clinton’s and Whitewater, or the mess Hillary got into with the Rose Law Firm? Those records were never made public. As I recall, Bill and Hillary had the secreted away and wouldn’t even give copies to all members of Congress or the congressional committee. (Memory is kinda vague on this one so don’t hold me to it exactly.) Romney has steadfastly refused to turn over his tax/business records and I don’t blame him. No one can “make” him. By the way, do you realize how hard it is to get rid of a sitting president? Clinton came close and Nixon had to resign, but unless hard proof turns up, Oblamer will be right where he is now at the end of this term.

            • No one can make Robme turn over anything? LOL. But shouldn’t he kinda of expect to turn over some of the basics when he’s doing something high profile, like oh, i don’t know, running for leader of the free world? Isn’t it a little silly to have people going after Obama’s many times certified birth Obama’s birth certificate and school records from 20 years ago, and not after the last few years of Romney’s tax returns? Doesn’t more recent stuff count for more, and investments he’d made or holds currently seem just slightly more relevant than who someone talked to in college? Rombe didn’t even turn over all of this tax records from the one year he deigned to let the public see. No conspiracy theorists think that’s fishy?

              The Republican lemmings are all aboard the Robme train though! It’s a good thing Republican lies and falsifications about their businesses and to the SEC n stuff are not nearly as important as blue dress lies, to Republicans, or they could have some problems. Of course affairs, lies, crimes, are only bad when committed by Democrats, and full disclosures, including their last colonoscopy, are also only expected of Democrats. .. uh. . .because.

              Wasn’t Romney’s parents born or living in Mexico? I think Robme is a mexican. Let’s see his birth certificate! Isn’t mexico where drugs come from? I bet his father traveled on the same roads as drug runners. Romney must be affiliated with the cartels. That’s what’s on those tax returns! Drugs proceeds from his blind cartel trusts. I knew it. This is all sourced by the way. I took individual facts and stitched them together, and presto, a conspiracy! I’m surprised B3A didn’t point out the fallacies in this post such as poisoning the well, post hoc, red herring, spotlight, and my all time favorite, secret muslim.

              • “But shouldn’t he kinda of expect to turn over some of the basics when he’s doing something high profile, like oh, i don’t know, running for leader of the free world?”
                Uh – I did believe he did “turn over the basics” and submitted the required financial information to qualify, but I appreciate you stepping up to make a case for the birthers. Why did Oblamer’s birth certificate have to be literally pried from his protesting hands. Why didn’t he just turn it over in the beginning during the vetting process? It should have been public record from the day he announced his candidacy.

                • fc……….”Why did Oblamer’s birth certificate have to be literally pried from his protesting hands. Why didn’t he just turn it over in the beginning during the vetting process?”
                  Because it was not “manufactured” yet, and because he is a liberal.

              • “But shouldn’t he kinda of expect to turn over some of the basics when he’s doing something high profile, like oh, i don’t know, running for leader of the free world? ” Yes. Why hasn’t Obama turned that stuff over yet?

                “Isn’t it a little silly to have people going after Obama’s many times certified birth Obama’s birth certificate and school records from 20 years ago, and not after the last few years of Romney’s tax returns?” Aw, who doesn’t wanna hear about some high-school hijiinx. Well, at least we got to hear about Romney’s ….

                “Rombe didn’t even turn over all of this tax records from the one year he deigned to let the public see. ” There’s this Secretary of Treasury in the current administration. Odd postion for him, IMHO, but what do I know. Reckon not showin as opposed to not payin your taxes are two horses of a different color.

                “Let’s see his birth certificate! Isn’t mexico where drugs come from?” Yes, I should like to see his birth certificate. Silly boy, Mexico only has guns that the DOJ provided for them.

                Have I helped, cupcake?

                • kells…………”“But shouldn’t he kinda of expect to turn over some of the basics when he’s doing something high profile, like oh, i don’t know, running for leader of the free world? ” Yes. Why hasn’t Obama turned that stuff over yet?”

                  Because it would expose him to be the fraud that he actually is and would have made too many of the lemmings not vote for him.

      • Answer my post, kells. Rationally, if possible. Please comment on the part that I’m shaking my head about.

        • You shook your head on my comment on his grandparents and affirmative action. I shall address both for you in the most rational way that I can. It appears that the primary caregivers of his upbringing were his grandparents. They provided (or not) for him. It appears as well that he knew that he could use the govt. for his advantage (as his father did).

          When the govt. creates a program (affirmative action) favouring one race, it is ludicrous because it is unfair. Did he use affirmative action to get into Harvard? Who knows?

          I just find it odd that we know all about Bush and his grades at Harvard (amongst other things), and how Romney shorn another boy’s hair in high school, yet; we don’t know nothing of the person that holds the most important postion in the US.

          It is extremely uncomfortable for me to be serious (unless I lose my temper.) I will redact my first sentence (there we go) and leave you with a song instead… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9iGUtqDHbs

          • “I just find it odd that we know all about Bush and his grades at Harvard (amongst other things), and how Romney shorn another boy’s hair in high school, yet; we don’t know nothing of the person that holds the most important postion in the US.”

            Well, I’m constantly reading about who his friends were, where he went to college, drugs he did etc but you still say you know nothing? Basically, the guy has written an autobiography, but you still want more to find something hidden. If millions of dollars and all these guys haven’t found anything in 3+ years, what’s left to find? Why do you need someone’s high school grades? Media tells you about Romney. The stuff he wants released, he has released. Other stuff has been investigated by the media and opposers including the other republican primary candidates. Ask Mitt’s campaign manager. He knew all that stuff would come back and bite them in the ass.

            “When the govt. creates a program (affirmative action) favouring one race, it is ludicrous because it is unfair. Did he use affirmative action to get into Harvard? Who knows?”

            Obviously you don’t, but you’re speculating. He’s said scholarships and loans which proceeds from his books finally paid off. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought Harvard was a private college and more than likely not subjected to any kind of governmental admission policies. This is just regurgitated talk from Trump. I highly doubt you’d be so concerned if If the subject were Thomas Sowell (Harvard grad), whose father died before he was born and mother was a maid. Damn, how could he afford Harvard? Even before what you call “affirmative action”? I think he worked his way through. Obama Sr got a degree from Harvard so wouldn’t that make him a legacy? Maybe that’s how he got in? Most colleges favor legacies you know, right?

            I suggest you read up on affirmative action, why it was created and it’s intent. The intent was to stop exactly what you stated. FAVORING of one race, not to FAVOR one since it was to stop ALL minority discrimination. It was intended to help people as yourself (women) not be discriminated against in hiring practices as well as education. If it was used for it’s original intent, there wouldn’t be an issue. But as any other government created program, it gets abused. It ended up being that if 2 applicants were qualified, you take the minority. Not the intent but in some cases, the result. And yes, that is unfair. But not by your reasoning since a qualified WHITE male could get bounced in favor of a qualified WHITE female.

            “It appears as well that he knew that he could use the govt. for his advantage (as his father did).”

            How? I thought he came to America on college scholarships from private donors. Now maybe he took some grants and loans along the way. Many do. I know I did. Go ahead. Call me a leech on the system.

            • I knew I would piss you off. It wasn’t my intent. I will concede that I am going by articles that I have read and what I have witnessed firsthand; so that isn’t really fair. I just try to formulate the answers to my questions from the information I am given, experience, or seek out.

              But PUH-LEEZ! you know and I know that I could beat a fella out of a job any day of the week! (I didn’t get scholarships for nuthin, pal, Joey.) ;)

              • It’s not that I’m pissed off. It’s more that all of this is a waste. Why are they so scared Romney can’t win? I mean, have an election and beat Obama fair and square and then there are no excuses and tainted history for America. No more of this Clinton impeachment type nonsense that wastes time and cost so much money—for nothing. . People keep saying all of this stuff, but that’s all it is–stuff. None of it has been proven so when people say more and more is coming out it’s not true because more of nothing is nothing. Remember “Just show the birth certificate”? What did that do? Did it shut up anyone? Maybe a few. The others just moved the goalposts back another 10 yards.

                I have no doubts you could beat B at a job interview. But at one time, if it were close, B would get most jobs just because he was a man. The only way you would get it was if you accepted a much lesser wage (that’s another subject though) or maybe did some immoral acts.

                I don’t want you to concede points to me. I just want you not to judge just because it’s someone you don’t like. It you have a valid point, introduce it and defend it with all you got. I do. Obama, Bush, Romney it doesn’t matter. The truth is the truth.

                Obama got elected because the GOP didn’t have a strong enough candidate. I don’t know if they have a strong enough one now or not. But if anyone thinks that Romney wins by a landslide I’d be checking their coffee cups. Obama’s gonna start that ol skool Chicago politics and sling as much mud as he can. The bad part is that he was given all the ammo that he needs by the GOP in the primaries.

                Scholarships? Yeah, I got $3K once from the university for my business courses. After that, I was a legacy, my father, grandfather and grandmother went there and also my dad was a Biology professor there. So I got tuition pretty low. What he couldn’t pay, I made up with loans and grants. But since it was a HBCU, you would have qualified for a scholarship as a minority female and easily received it. : )

                Hot tub just got sanitized.

                • What is a HBCU? Wills, I seriously doubt I would’ve qualified for a scholarship at your school — I was a music major! ::giggling::

                  I didn’t concede on my point because of a dislike for Obama (Actually, I find his off-the cuff comments very amusing.) As I stated, I’m only going by what I can gather….which isn’t much. Admittedly, Romney is no different than Obama (philosophically) but I do believe he will adhere to a Republican agenda. Things must turn around. I don’t see that happening with Obama.

                  They sanitized the hot tub? Sheesh! I didn’t think we were that outta line last night………………were we? I’m laughing now because today my neighbor caught me skinny dippin. I swear, if it’s not low flyin helicopters, it’s somethin else…..

                • Historically black college or university. You could have been part of the “Marching 100″ and hopefully not got the hazing that unfortunate kid did that died.

                  You would have qualified easily being a white female. There may have been less than 50 in campus and some of them were FSU students the took some required courses on FAMU’s campus.

                  If Romney adheres to a republican agenda, whatever that is, it probably means more of the same. Remember GWB’s agenda? He needs a conservative agenda. It’s been awhile since we’ve had one.

                  ” Things must turn around. I don’t see that happening with Obama.”

                  Depends on what you mean by turn around. The economy is cyclical and will turn itself around if left alone. That’s the problem. Everyone wants to fix it. It needs limited regulation, but punishments for those that violate them. Not more fixing.

                  Obama is for big government, socialized medicine, and a host of other things that I don’t agree with. I don’t agree with many of his core principles so I can vote for him. Since many of Romney’s is the same, can’t vote for him either.

  6. flasawdust. . .. “Because it would expose him to be the fraud that he actually is and would have made too many of the lemmings not vote for him.”

    Pretty harsh. Didn’t you say you voted for him in your intro? Were a lemming then or are you a lemming now? Or were you just a liar?

  7. crazycrawfish……”flasawdust. . .. “Because it would expose him to be the fraud that he actually is and would have made too many of the lemmings not vote for him.”

    Pretty harsh. Didn’t you say you voted for him in your intro? Were a lemming then or are you a lemming now? Or were you just a liar?”

    You have got to be wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy past crazy.
    I would NEVER have voted for ANYONE from Chicago.
    I would NEVER have voted for ANYONE with a communist agenda.
    I would NEVER have voted for ANYONE that I could tell was a LIAR from the 1st time I saw them.
    I would NEVER have voted for ANYONE that would hide their past from the electorate.

    If you are having a problem understanding what a lemming looks like ……buy a mirror. Or stop by Greg’s or James’s house.

  8. william……….. “Obama got elected because the GOP didn’t have a strong enough candidate”.
    You are soooooooooooo correct. McCain was the worst possible GOP presidential hopeful on the primary ballot in 2008, but he had military experience and was a DC insider. And OWEbozo was a completely unknown opponent.

    “I don’t know if they have a strong enough one now or not.”
    Once again, I don’t believe that we have the best choice we were originally given, BUT OWEbozo is no longer an unknown opponent. He has proven to ANYONE that looks at life with both eyes open what he is “hoping to change” America into, and it is nothing like he was promising in 2008. Now he will have to run on his record, and if anyone doesn’t think that is going to be hard to do, and votes for him, they deserve what he is going to do to their country.

    • “but he had military experience and was a DC insider”

      True. Now the only thing the GOP has is a guy with business experience with many leftist principles.

      “BUT OWEbozo is no longer an unknown opponent”

      That may be an advantage to Romney is a way….but probably not the way you’re thinking. A lot of Obama supporters are disappointed that he’s not as far left as they would like. So will those people jump on the Romney wagon? Probably not. They’ll just do as kells hopes Romney does if he wins but opposite, adopt a more far-left leaning philosophy. Many will hope they can push Obama more to the left, with the single-payer option of the ACA not available being his biggest failure to many of his far-left supporters.

      “Now he will have to run on his record,”

      He won’t do that. He’ll run on Romney’s. He’ll throw all the mud from the GOP primaries at him. The 10K bet. Etch-a-sketch, flip-flopping. Obama’s no fool. He was underestimated once and he has a lot of money. Look for the negative ads to pick up as fall nears. If Romney doesn’t engage, which at this point he hasn’t, he’ll be singing “America the Beautiful” at his concession speech.

  9. “McCain was a Washington insider and we don’t need any more of them.”

    Though I know no one here wrote the letter, we hear this a lot and it’s worth discussing. Too often we vote for someone we don’t know well, because they’re the “outsider.” In fact, that’s what we did with Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama. How’s that working out?
