The Blaze Reports Obama Listed As Indonesian Citizen On School Registration

Enrollment documents viewed by TheBlaze confirm that a young Barack Obama was listed as an Indonesian citizen and a Muslim on school registration in the 1960s. And while the document has been reported on before, albeit lightly, TheBlaze has compiled the most complete view thus far of the document and the circumstances surrounding it – including an interview with the president’s first-ever principal while he was in Indonesia.

TheBlaze repeatedly photographed the document in the office of the current headmaster of Santo Fransiskus Assisis, a Catholic school that Obama attended from January 1968 to December 1970 in Jakarta. The record shows that Obama (or his parents) – at least for the period of his life – claimed to be an Indonesian citizen, that he took the last name Soetoro (the last name of his step-father, Lolo), that his religion was listed as Islam, and that he was born in Honolulu.


While Obama’s time at Santo Fransiskus is important (and we’ll explore it in more detail shortly), it’s just as crucial to fastforward to when Obama left the school.

According to records at Santo Fransiskus Assisis, Obama left after 1970 because his family moved. That move was due to Lolo leaving Dinas Topografi, a mapmaking survey company that contracted with the Indonesian army—which is listed in the document we viewed—to join Union Oil where he became a well-connected government liaison officer.

That job came with perks, among them access to some of the best schools for young Barry Soetoro. That’s evident by the young Obama attending Besuki School, one of the three best public schools in Indonesia, after leaving St. Fransiskus. Besuki School is the sort of place the connected send their children when they are not already sending them to the pricy international school. (This is an important detail because once Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, got a job working for the Ford Foundation in 1980, and after she had divorced Lolo Soetoro, she began sending her daughter, Maya, to Jakarta International School.)

  • We’ve known this for over 4 years; why are they just now reporting it?

      Colonel, I’m going to guess The Blaze is just now reporting this because the Main Stream Media has not deemed it to be news worthy. We have also known other titbits, which have been equally ignored. Next question.

    The ignorant masses could care less. The elites think this adds to his celebrity status. The rest of us will suffer.

    He is a fraud and a con man, and now has committed TREASON! He should be jailed.

    Why doesn’t someone arrange a class action suit by American Citizens v.s. Barak Obama, maybe we can sue to get some of that $FIVE $TRILLION back!

    Very few people care. Your neighbors don’t care about law or liberty; they only want the free shit that Obama and his Communist Welfare State can provide them for free and without any sweat from their brow. Good luck trying to convince Shiniqua and Bubba to vote against free hair extensions and beer money.
