Fact Check: Does Barack Obama Have Over 80 Aliases?

A new e-mail allegation is making the rounds, making the case that there is no actual Barack Obama. Rather, the missive insinuates, President Obama is a “Manchurian Candidate thing,” a person who has been selected by unseen conspirators to assume the false identity of Barack Obama and run for President in order to do the conspirators’ bidding.

As part of an ongoing effort to fact-check this set of allegations, today we’ll look at this doozy of a sentence:

There is only one Barack Hussein Obama according to the U. S. Census and he has 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases.

We’ve already debunked the middle claim of this sentence, that supposedly Barack Obama has 27 social security numbers. That claim isn’t based in fact, as the person who originally made the claim admits. But what about the other two assertions of fact? Does Barack Obama indeed have “over 80 aliases”? Less crucially, has the U.S. Census Bureau actually reported that “there is only one Barack Hussein Obama”?

Over 80 Aliases?

Because of the secretive, unseen nature of an alias — “a false name used to conceal one’s identity” (Random House Dictionary), it is nearly impossible to definitively prove that a person does not have an alias. Because an alias is a concealment, it is by definition hidden. How do you prove that something is not hidden away somewhere? It is similarly impossible to disprove the existence of an invisible pink unicorn or a flying spaghetti monster. For this claim of 80 aliases to be affirmed, it’s not enough to say that such aliases are possible; the existence of 80 false names used by the person currently occupying the Oval Office must be convincingly demonstrated.

No primary source document listing 80 false names demonstrably used by the president to conceal the president’s “real identity” is presented by this e-mail. Furthermore, I am unable after hours of using search engines and newsbanks to locate any such primary source document. I have been unable to locate even a secondary source containing a claimed list of 80 aliases.

Until someone provides this primary source document — that is, a list of 80 aliases of Barack Obama with proof that Barack Obama has used each of false names as an alias, the claim stands unsupported.

Conversely, a white kid using an Afro wig and using the alias “Barack Obama” did actually recently try to steal money from ATM machines. If this can be verified so easily for some 19-year-old kid — complete with FBI affidavits online — it should be a cinch to track the supposed actions of a president. I challenge anyone to overturn this fact check by providing me with the list of 80 aliases and the proof for the use of each one by the man who calls himself President Barack Obama.

Does the Census Verify that “There is only one Barack Hussein Obama?”

This assertion is not critical to the “Manchurian Candidate” accusation regarding Barack Obama, but it is a point on which the reliability of the accusing writer can be assessed. There very well may be only one Barack Hussein Obama, but the U.S. Census Bureau would not be a source of information to verify this. Empirically speaking, a search of U.S. Census Bureau documents confirms that there is no statement by the Census Bureau declaring President Barack Obama to be the only person with that name. Legally speaking, it would be impermissible for the U.S. Census Bureau to make such a declaration; federal law stipulates that individual-level information must be kept confidential for 72 years after its collection by the Census.

  • ~ONE alias is just as bad as a million of them.

      Randy, do you know that any nickname, maiden name or name from a previous marriage is considered to be an alias? I used to be under the impression that an alias was only a name used for subterfuge, but learned that to be incorrect while filling out routine background check forms necessary for volunteering at my children’s schools.

      • Donald R Shartzer Jr

        Most of his aliases are used under subterfuge. Just research the name Harrison J. Bounel and see for yourselves. Barack H. Obama, according to the records he has not spent millions of tax dollars hiding, has not even been a LEGAL alias until recently( just before he entered the senate actually.) He has been known by Barry Sotoero, which is the name of his muslim Indonesian adopted dad. Frank Marshall Davis is suspected to be his biological father and he also is credited as young Barry’s “mentor.”

    • obama has 8 or more aliases, with the DNC and others like that as a part of them. he USES these things…Come off the B.S.! This “boy” has shown how deceptive and opportunistic he is and is just getting started. He’s the worst thing that has happened to humanity…Not just the USA!!!!

  • Bill Goode

    Check out this 40 minute radio interview. In addition to Obama’s aliases, he is using fraudulent Social Security Numbers and has committed fraud in real estate. It seems there is no end to the fraud this fellow has committed and is continuing to commit.

  • Linda

    Whatshisname illegally sits in OUR White House and he illegally has directed OUR country to ruins. Are we going to sit back and now allow this illegal alien to take over our individual homes, tell us what we can eat, when to eat and whom may or may not eat. This man is a COMMUNIST!!! I think the American people are sick and tired of this piece of crap and will attempt to wait to see what happens in the days as we draw near to voting someone else in. I do believe we are nearing a true uprising, Civil War #2. Keep it up you mindless piece of trash and see where it gets you…… and I don’t mean the presidency!!!

    • If you use all caps and three exclamation points, it must be true.

      You’ll have to excuse me while I go eat breakfast. Our Illegal Alien President allotted me the time of 9:26 am. Today I am permitted to eat Grape Nuts.

    • Hooligan

      Where do these idiots like Linda come from? Are they real? Are they robo-posters? What’s the deal? And the all caps thing while posting always makes one feel like one is being yelled at. Linda means pretty woman. When I see something like this I imagine a frumpy person with warts who smells.

      If she doesn’t reply to that, she’s a robo-poster.

      • Man

        Your the one that’s an idiot!!! If you had absolute documents, that are refulgent unrefutable proof you wouldn’t believe it!!! Oh. by the way there are proofs!!! It’s amazing how idiots like you can’t see it!!! Linda is right on, and monsters that back this monster are wanting to give our country away!!! If your in that big of a hurry to give this country away get a ticket to Cuba, or Russia for Obama would be right at home with you!!! I could give much informatiom, about this corrupt liar, but you wouldn’t, or couldn’t see it anyway!!! The best I can do for you is tell you to look at all the people silenced so far about this person, and his cronies. Look at all the constitutional policy that this so called president is trying to change, that should tell you something; oh, I’m sorry no it wouldn’t!!! I’m sorry your one of them!!! You could go to Alex Jones at Info wars and educate yourself; but I don’t think it would do any good. By the way all those 80 aliases, and other obnubilate statements are comments made up of Obama followers to make it look like this is one big joke about the aliases. I only know of only 3 with much research, so don’t blow it up out of control; the 80 aliases are only comments from JOKERS that think total governmental control is the way to go!!! When they tell you when to ____ you won’t feel so boisterous then; you feel like a lame noodle in a retirement home.

        • Notice that “Man” didn’t supply any actual, oh, what’s it called, um, er, wait a minute, it’ll come to me any minute now…

          … hang on …

          EVIDENCE! Right, that’s it. No actual evidence.

  • Deone Hanson

    Where is the press on this issue?

    why was his wife, Michele forced to surrender her attorney’s license in 2002? likewise Barack gave up his license in the same year ! why, why, why ? Deone

    • Why, why, why, Deone, don’t you take five seconds to look up the truth before cutting and pasting cheap lies someone fed to you?

      There are dozens of reasons to legitimately be upset with the performance of President Barack Obama. So why make shit up about law license conspiracies? I really don’t get it.

  • J.D.

    If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it more than likely is a duck…..
    Where our country sits right now is at the lowest level it ever has…..

    THAT MEANS HE IS A SUBVERSIVE PAWN…………………………………………………….

  • Rick

    Several months ago ABC news and a program on for about an hour talking about Obama’s past and his alias name of Barry Soetoro and showed documents belonging to him that had that name on it. However, ABC news acted like it was not big deal. I think there is a real problem with anyone that is president or running for president and has an alias. It looks like they have something to hide and as far as I know he is the only president that has an alias.

  • Barry Soetero

    Jim Cook wants to eat Obamas swimmers.. he too is a traitor, just like his dear leader
