One of the great mysteries of the past dozen or so years seems to be where Barack Obama truly came from.

In the end, he has more origin stories than a series of Marvel movies.

With all that has been reported in relation to this man’s past, as well as his multiple identities, there is ‘motive’ for this identification photo to be labeled as a mere hoax. However, with the vast number of people who hate Obama, there is just as much cause, if not more, for this image to indeed be fake.

A few websites claim this image is a hoax, while others state it is real.

Regarding this image, states:

Analysis: This is a hoax aimed at convincing the gullible that Barack Obama attended college as a foreign student, and therefore could not have been born in the U.S., and therefore is ineligible to be president.

The first clue that it’s a fake is the name, “Barry Soetoro.” Though Soetoro was his stepfather’s last name and Obama did attend grade school in Indonesia under that name, there’s no evidence he used any name other than Barack (or “Barry”) Obama while attending college (for example, see the byline of an essay by Obama published in Columbia University’s weekly magazine, The Sundial, in 1983).

One of his fellow classmates states:

I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right. Obama has a secret hidden at Columbia- and it’s a bad one that threatens to bring down his presidency. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia.

Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best it’s ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant, and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.  —The Blaze, Wayne Allyn Root

And then, Waffles At Noon declares:

Columbia ID Cards
The design of the card shown did not exist in 1981. The design was announced in 1996 in the February 2, 1996 edition of the Columbia University Record. The cards were first issued on March 1, 1996. Prior card designs included the student’s social security number.

The image from which the fake Obama ID image was created belongs to Thomas Lugert, who posted his college ID in an article entitled, “My study of the English Language at Columbia University in New York City from Juli 20, 98 – August 14, 98.” The scan of his ID card has the same card number, and even the same shadowing in the scan as seen on the fake Obama ID. See the original, full-sized image here. Lugert’s ID was issued in 1998.

The photo of Obama on the fake card does not depict the future President in the early 1980′s but during his time at Harvard, which heattended from 1988 through 1991.

Yet another source, Help Free the Earth, reports that he never even went to Columbia University. But, does that mean that he never attended as Barack Obama? Barry Soetoro? Or, not at all?

Why are Obama’s college records still “sealed” (hidden). No one can investigate what classes he took, what subjects he studied, or what papers he wrote. Nobody knew him or even remembers him from Columbia University.

Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims he was there, but none remembered him. None ever heard of him at the class reunion. Obama’s photograph isn’t in the school yearbook. Obama consistently refuses to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or names of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia. Why? Because he was never there!

Obama’s real name is Barry Soetoro. He used the name “Barry Soetoro” to receive financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The OFFICIAL transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order.

Obama Conspiracy Theories says:

First, there is no way a name and address from the 1980’s is going to appear in for the first time in some skip-tracing database in 2010 unless somebody intentionally created a transaction, such as a credit application, for the purpose of inserting the record. This is obviously a birther trick  and only somebody hopelessly naive would fail to recognize this.

For the benefit of readers who have never been to college in the US, this is how things work. When you apply to a college, you have your high school submit a transcript. Well President Obama went high school in Hawaii under the name of Barack (or Barry) Obama, not Soetoro. Lots of people remember him from high school. Some of his friends evenwrote a book about it. Obama is in the Punahau yearbook, and Punahou School proudly celebrates its famous alumnus named Obama, not Soetoro.

Barack Obama graduated from high school as Barack Obama, ergo, he entered Occidental College as Barack Obama. There are many references and published interviews confirming the President at Occidental, under the name Obama. Occidental College proudlycelebrates its famous alumnus named Obama, not Soetoro.

I think we can all agree that there have been and is an overwhelming amount of proven evidence that Obama is a fake, a liar, and definitely not fulfilling what is necessary, just, and pure in order to be a leader of the United States of America. And we know that he has been involved in activiites that are criminal in nature, including Benghazi.

Whether or not this photo is fake is yet to be  proven. What do you believe?

What documents here are real, and which ones are hoaxes? Find the image below you KNOW positively is a fake. Can you guess? Hint: It’s going to be very difficult to figure out! Trust me!
