Was Obama ever a student at Columbia University?

who is this man

Author and 2008 Libertarian Party VP nominee was an undergraduate student at Columbia University the same time as President Lucifer. In fact, Root and Obama are supposed to be in the same graduating Class of 1983.

For five years now, since 2007, Root has maintained that when he was in Columbia U., he’d never met, seen, or heard of fellow student Obama, nor does he know any student or faculty who had.

Now, in an essay for The Blaze, “Barack Obama: The Ghost of Columbia University,” Root makes two more significant revelations:

Root writes: “I just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual — he wasn’t there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University. […] Don’t you think the media should be asking questions? Isn’t this a very strange story?

I am a graduate of Columbia University, Class of 1983. That’s the same class Barack Obama claims to have graduated from. We shared the same exact major — Political Science. We were both Pre Law. It was a small class — about 700 students. The Political Science department was even smaller and closer-knit (maybe 150 students). I thought I knew, or met at least once, (or certainly saw in classes) every fellow Poly Sci classmate in my four years at Columbia.

But not Obama. No one ever met him. Even worse, no one even remembers seeing that unique memorable face. Think about this for a minute. Our classmate is President of the United States. Shouldn’t someone remember him? Or at least claim to remember him?

One of the speakers at the 30th reunion should have reminisced about ‘my days with the future President.’ But no one did. You’d think Obama might have sent a video to tell us all how much he enjoyed his time at Columbia. You’d think he’d have sent at least a letter to be read aloud from one of his former college buddies. Right? But he didn’t. Because Obama has no former college buddies. No one that ever met Obama, let alone befriended him, was in attendance at our 30th class reunion.

Now you might argue this is all strange, but it’s possible. After all Columbia says he graduated. And I take my college’s word for it. Would one of the world’s greatest Ivy League institutions participate in a coverup, thereby risking their billion dollar reputation? And there is one single article written for the Columbia newspaper with Obama’s name on it. A single photo also exists of Obama in his Manhattan apartment with the man he claims was his college roommate — a Pakistani foreign student. And one single radical leftist Columbia professor who hates Israel also claims he remembers Obama.

That’s the sum total of Obama’s existence at Columbia University, Class of ’83.

So I asked every classmate I met at our 30th reunion, many of them Political Science majors, if they ever met, or saw, or heard of Obama. The answer was a resounding NO from every one of them. I asked if they found this strange, or worried how this was possible? They all answered YES. I asked if they thought it was possible to be a Political Science major and never meet a fellow major in our small classes? They all gave me a very strange look and answered NO. So I asked, ‘How could this be possible? Can you explain this?’ No one had an answer.

Keep in mind these people I spoke to are all — to a man and woman — dedicated liberal Democrats who voted for Obama. I’m guessing 90% are major Democrat contributors. My Columbia classmates are the crème of the crop of American society. Lawyers, doctors, billionaire hedge fund members, stars of the media. They adore Obama. But they all admit they never met him in their four years at Columbia. I am proud of my classmates for their honesty and integrity.

[…] So here’s my take on this great mystery. I’ve never said Obama was not registered at Columbia. I’m sure he was. I’ve never said he didn’t graduate. If Columbia says he did, then I’m sure he did. But I’ve always said there is something wrong with the story. It’s rancid. It’s unbelievable. It’s impossible. It’s the story of a Manchurian candidate.

The question isn’t was he ever registered, or did he graduate. […] But the serious question the media should be asking is…What did Obama do for two full years in-between registration and graduation? Did he ever attend a class? Did he ever have a single friend other than a Pakistani national? Why is the only professor to ever come forward and claim he remembers him a radical leftist who hates Israel? What exactly was he doing when no one met him, saw him, or heard of him? Why are his college records sealed? What has he got to hide?

But my educated guess is he can’t, or won’t ever release those records. Because what we’d find would be shocking.

[…] There is something wrong with Obama’s story — that much I know. He is either the ghost of Columbia, or the perfect Manchurian candidate. But something smells rotten at Columbia.”

2. Legendary Columbia U. professor Henry Graff says he’s never heard of Obama.

In Part II of his essay for The Blaze, Root writes: “… until now, I was the only one publicly voicing my suspicions. That just changed in a big way. Meet Professor Henry Graff, perhaps the most legendary and honored professor ever at Columbia University. He was THE American History and Diplomatic History professor at Columbia for 46 years. And he is more emphatic than yours truly that there are no Obama footprints at Columbia.

I was put on Professor Graff’s trail by another Columbia classmate, skeptical about Obama’s story. He told me that Professor Graff had been the speaker for the Class of ’53 last weekend at Columbia. My friend was watching Graff answer questions from the crowd when he was asked about Obama at Columbia. Graff said, ‘I have my doubts he ever went here.’

I did some digging and located Graff’s home phone number. I called him yesterday. Now retired, he was delighted to hear from me. He agreed to go on the record about Obama. Unlike Obama, Professor Graff clearly remembered me. He was thrilled to hear from his former student. I was in several of Graff’s classes and he remembered me like it was yesterday. He sounded great — like he hasn’t lost any of his trademark sharpness in 30 years since we last met.

I was honored to learn that this legendary historian has been following my political career for many years. But he had no such cheery things to say about the President. Graff said, ‘I taught at Columbia for 46 years. I taught every significant American politician that ever studied at Columbia. I know them all. I’m proud of them all. Between American History and Diplomatic History, one way or another, they all had to come through my classes. Not Obama. I never had a student with that name in any of my classes. I never met him, never saw him, never heard of him.’

Even more importantly, Professor Graff knew the other history and political science professors. ‘None of the other Columbia professors knew him either.’ said Graff.

Graff concluded our interview by saying, ‘I’m very upset by the whole story. I am angry when I hear Obama called ‘the first President of the United States from Columbia University.’ I don’t consider him a Columbia student. I have no idea what he did on the Columbia campus. No one knows him.’

    This prrsident did not go to Columbia under his real name. Where are the pictures?

    • Barry Soetoro was a foreign student of Columbia Univ enrolled by Zbiegniew Brzezinski, Carter’s Sec of State who sent Barry to Friendship Univ in Moscow, USSR to study Marxism in 1981. Barry never attended Columbia U in New York City. Russian Academy of Sciences bragged in 1992 that “Barack was a true Soviet, one of us and will make easier the triumph of communism” which is why Obama refuses to help Ukraine drive out the Russian invaders. He is a communist through and through working for Vladimir Putin, his mentor.

  2. I wish somebody would blow this thing wide open! Thanks for all the work you do on this stuff Dr. E.

  3. I’m not convinced the Kenyan comrade Dear Ruler even graduated from high school.

    Without his precious prompter, he can’t even put together two coherent sentences.

    Everything about this man is a fraud.


    • I agree! Without a teleprompter and when he talks on his own, he sounds like Chicago street scum. He has never taken English classes that teach proper sentence formation, and uses expressions like “and all that stuff” and other uneducated slang. I don’t think he could have passed a Jr. high school English class here in America. He was groomed some where else.

    • Hell , he’s lucky to put two words together without one of them being er, or um !

    • Barry Soetoro is very fluent In Arabic, Indonesian and Russian where he was educated. He needs a teleprompter to speak English as his vocabulary is limited in English.

  4. Even if he was enrolled under another name and actually attended classes, people would have remembered him.

  5. Some day the truth will come out. I am fearful it will be too late to save our country . Massive debt, Constitutional violations, scandal ridden departments and lies to Congress all paint the path of destruction.

  6. Authors on conspiracy hoax sites should do better research .. Wayne Allen Root, June 6, 2010 “Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of ’83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. ” “Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme — all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.” https://www.reviewjournal.com/opinion/obamas-agenda-overwhelm-system

    • What’s your point? Are you calling FOTM a “conspiracy hoax site”?

      • Seen enough conspiracy hoaxes on here, though I will concede that maybe it’s just a friend I have that believes nothing but conspiracy hoaxes and her links to here is all I usually read. It’s still fact that classmates from Columbia, including Wayne Allen Root, remember Barack Obama attending, but for some reason Root has started lying about not remembering him. I can say that because my link is to one of Root’s anti-Obama articles where he’s bragging about being a classmate.

        • Keith,

          Either you have reading comprehension problems or you have a cognition problem. You need to re-read that old Root op-ed.

          In that op-ed you sited, Root wrote: “Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of ’83).” He never wrote “I’d seen and heard of Barack Obama in Columbia U.”

          Indeed, according to Columbia U., both Obama and Root are in its graduating Class of 1983. Therefore, Root did not lie when he called Obama his college classmate. The whole point of this post is that both Root and Professor Graff are saying that although Obama supposedly was a student at Columbia for 2 years and supposedly had graduated in 1983, neither Root nor Graff had ever met, seen, or heard of Obama — in spite of the fact that Political Science majors at the time (which both Obama and Root were) numbered only a grand total of 75.

          I don’t appreciate you calling Root a liar and I most certainly don’t appreciate you calling FOTM a “conspiracy hoax site.” You have some nerve.



          • I think Keith is on another planet.

            Root has been saying he never saw O at Columbia since 2007. And he was audited twice for speaking out.

          • Ditto Dr. Eowyn! Keith sounds like one of many individuals who just don’t want the facts. Give me anything, but not the facts!

    • You can pay a lot of people to say anything. Money and power can buy off people. Where is the evidence that he was EVER there except a few photo shoots (to validate he was there.

  7. It seems this president is nothing but a shadow. Who goes through these chapters of life without anybody remembering they were there?

  8. Another massive hoax played on Americans and also the world. Who says that crime doesn’t pay in this world? God will set everything straight in His time though. Nothing is hidden from Him.

  9. I am surprised to read this post. The way Obama’s alma mater is flaunted; I used to think that he might have been very active student. A student who is not only known in the university he studies but in other universities too. Just thinking how does Obama have gone through such a makeover that he is ruling us.

  11. BO, alias SOB, is the hoax!

  12. GOP failure to vet Obama which could have been done online very easily may mean the end of USA freedom as Russia/China are planning to invade Alaska, Baja California, Nicaragua. China has huge warehouses in Bahamas, both ends of Panama Canal to house thousands of troops. It will be an easy takeover. They will race across Canada and Southern US to Atlantic. US will raise troops in Virginia but will be defeated and Obama will become our new dictator because GOP gave him all he wanted. George Washington saw the invaders eventually driven out after Americans finally woke up from their stupor.

  13. God said US lost its freedom to Russians and Chinese because of 60 million abortions in USA since 1973, homosexuals are running wild with government approval and US Catholic bishops are failures at running the Church which they have wrecked beyond measure.
