Root Gone Wild

WorldNetDaily columnist Wayne Allyn Root continues his bizarre hatred of Barack Obama, and he's adding President Biden into the mix by baselessly portraying him as an Obama puppet.

Wayne Allyn Root

Wayne Allyn Root has been an obsessive hater of Barack Obama for years -- he has peddled falsehoods and exaggerations about Obama back when he was writing for Newsmax, where he also likened Obama to Hannibal Lecter.

Root is writing for WorldNetDaily now, and that bizarre hatred hasn't abated at all. He had an Obama freakout in a May 2023 column:

We are living in an age of mass deception, distraction and denial, of mass brainwashing. We might as well all be living in Jonestown, Guyana, and following the orders of Jim Jones.

That's how bad it is. It's all laid out right in front of us. But no one can see it. Or maybe no one wants to see it. The Durham report is "the canary in the coal mine."

I believe it's all former President Barack Obama. It's always been Obama. Obama is the REAL "big guy." Obama is the REAL criminal mastermind. Obama was the head of the snake. Obama was the John Gotti of the U.S. government, overseeing a massive criminal conspiracy. Obama was the head of the "Obama Crime Family."

Obama committed TREASON.

And the worst part of all: Obama's still in charge. Obama is pulling all the strings. He's the one calling the shots. He's the ventriloquist, speaking for the wooden dummy puppet President Joe Biden. Obama is the real president of the United States, back for his third term.


Obama, Hillary and Joe Biden used the power of the federal government as their own mafia extortion operation. Hillary and Biden were the capos who carried out the crimes, thereby keeping Obama's hands clean. Obama gave them full license to steal, and freedom from prosecution. In poker it's called a "free roll."

That was the point of the made-up "Russian collusion" story: to frame the new president, and keep him too distracted defending himself, to prosecute Obama, Biden and Hillary.

That was also the point of the FBI declining to prosecute Hillary for her deleted emails. Those emails between her and Obama were enough to get them all convicted for treason. Remember Hillary's words from 2016: "If that bastard (Trump) wins, we all hang from nooses."

It's even truer today than in 2016. That is why Democrats are so desperate to stop Trump from winning in 2024. Because there is no statute of limitations for treason. Durham has opened the door. And I'm betting if Trump wins again, this time he's going after all of them with a vengeance.

That Hillary quote Root cited? It's fake.

Root ramped up the Obamaphobic rage in his July 21 column:

It's so damn obvious. You'd have to be delusional, naive, a moron or a Democrat not to understand what went down.

You'd have to be delusional, naive, a moron or a Democrat not to understand our country has been sold out.

And you'd have to be blind, deaf and dumb not to understand this wasn't President Joe Biden's plan. Biden has always been former President Barack Obama's "useful idiot."

The answer to every question about who committed the crimes, who sold out our country, who the mastermind is, is always the same ...

IABO: It's Always Been Obama.


What did Obama know and when did he know it? Obama was president when all this went on. Obama was in charge when Biden was robbing us blind. Obama oversaw all this crime, corruption, extortion and tax fraud.

Obama was president when his vice president's son ran around the world on a one-man crime and sex spree. Hunter Biden acted like he represented the United States government, while snorting coke and smoking crack off prostitutes' backs ... while having sex with possibly underage girls, filming it all and putting it on his laptop – opening the entire United States to blackmail.

And you think Obama didn't know about any of this?


Folks, either you believe Obama is a fool, the dumbest and most clueless moron to ever occupy the White House ... and Obama knew nothing ... Obama saw nothing ... Obama heard nothing ... Obama is a clone of Sgt. Shultz on "Hogan's Heroes" ...

... or you're starting to understand that Obama was the mastermind. Obama was "the tutti di capo" – the ultimate "Big Guy" – the boss of bosses.

And all this crime, corruption, extortion and treason was carried out with Obama's approval and permission. All these world-class criminals, traitors and useful idiots were working for Obama, were following Obama's plan and carrying out Obama's orders – and were protected by Obama's DOJ and Obama's FBI.

And it's Obama right now still giving the orders. It's clear Biden is a brain-dead puppet with dementia and diapers. Half the time this half-wit doesn't know where he is – or who he is. The CEO of Burisma reportedly said Hunter was dumber than his dog. Where do you think Hunter got that from? He's a chip off the old block. Hunter is as dumb as a box of rocks, simply because his father is as dumb as a box of rocks. Two useful idiots.

You don't have to be a genius, or a brain surgeon, to figure out IABO: "It's Always Been Obama."

Obama was the mastermind then. Obama is the mastermind now.

What did Obama know and when did he know it? He knew everything – because he was the guy giving the orders.

And he still is.

Yep, that's some serious Obama derangement right there.

Root's ODS flared up again in his Oct. 27 column, which started like this:

I’m former President Barack Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. We’ve both had interesting political careers since graduating Columbia. We stand as polar opposites on every issue.

My classmate Obama clearly learned well at Columbia (even though he was rarely, if ever seen there by anyone – classmates or professors). I’ve already written about Obama, aka “the ghost of Columbia.” I believe he spent his two years, after transferring into Columbia, at our sister school in the old Soviet Union studying communism.

And at Columbia at the time, the big strategy everyone talked about was called “Cloward-Piven.” It was a plan created by two Columbia professors to destroy America and capitalism and turn the U.S. into a socialist Big Brother country.

Obama learned well. You’re watching Obama right now, in his third term, carrying out this plan.
Root is lying. Obama’s college years have been documented, people who aren’t Root remember him there, and Root offered no evidence that Columbia even had a “sister school in the old Soviet Union,” let alone that Obama ever went there for the goal of “studying communism.”

Root went on to serve up performative outrage at Obama warning Israel to minimize civilian casualties in Gaza, huffing in response that it’s “impossible” to do: “It has never been avoided in any war in history, and specifically in this case, knowing that Hamas and all Islamic radicals use women, children and the elderly as “human shields” to purposely increase civilian deaths (and then blame Israel).” He went on to rant about other advice Obama offered:

But this was Obama’s most disturbing warning. He argues that if Israel kills civilians, “it could further harden Palestinian attitudes for generations.”

I must respond to that evil, ignorant, dangerous, preposterous statement by Obama.

First, when Obama talks about further hardening Palestinian attitudes for generations, let’s examine how preposterous that idea is. The Palestinian people hate Israel and Jews. Not just in Palestine, but in America. Have you seen the demonstrations across our country? In every American big city, on every elite college campus, Palestinians and Muslims chant about death to Israel and Jews and celebrate the mass murder of Jews by Hamas.

Shockingly, that’s in America. So, maybe Obama should address the hate and obsession with Jews by Muslim Americans. These are “hate crimes” against American Jews.

Secondly, the idea that Obama is worried about “hardening Palestinian attitudes” is absurd. How can their attitudes be any “harder” than mass-murdering and slaughtering 1,400 Jews … slicing children’s throats, beheading babies, burning Jews to death … mutilating bodies after death … and I actually watched a video of Hamas soldiers cutting a baby out of the stomach of a pregnant Jewish woman (who was alive at the time) and knifing the baby to death.

Do you think Palestinian attitudes could possibly get any “harder”? I wonder why Obama didn’t address that.

Third, what about Israeli and Jewish attitudes? Why isn’t Obama worried about them? When Hamas mass-murders in demonic and barbaric ways that haven’t been seen since the Holocaust, do they ever worry if they’re “hardening Jewish attitudes” for generations to come? How come Obama doesn’t worry about that?

Root returned to justifying killing civilians:

Fourth, what about our great country, the United States? Did we ever worry during WWII about firebombing German and Japanese cities? It was a war. We bombed and bombed until major enemy cities were turned to rubble. We killed the enemy, and many millions of civilians were “collateral damage.” Millions of German and Japanese civilians died. That’s what happens in war. Obama knows that. Yet he only holds Israel responsible. Isn’t that telling?

Didn’t we kill civilians in Vietnam? What about the two-decade-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Didn’t America kill hundreds of thousands of civilians in the bombings? Didn’t Obama himself conduct a drone war that resulted in thousands of Muslim civilian deaths? I guess he forgot all of that.

Did Obama ever warn Ukraine about civilian deaths? Did he ever mention that killing Russians might “harden Russian attitudes for generations”?

Root concluded by further counterfactual huffing at Obama:

Why is it always different with the Jews? Why would Obama be angry at Israel for responding in self-defense to one of the worst terror attacks in world history? Why is only Israel always supposed to show restraint? Why indeed.

Because Obama hates Israel. He always has.

As usual, Root offered no facts to back up his ranting.

After writing a column in which he actually claimed that Trump “is sent by God and blessed by God,” he followed up with more Obama derangement in his March 8 column:

I’m a yin and yang guy. My column last week titled “Do You Believe in Miracles?” went viral. It was everywhere, read by everyone.

I believe President Donald Trump is “the chosen one.” I believe Trump was sent by God and blessed by God. Trump is supernatural. Trump is a miracle happening right in front of our eyes.

Here is the yin to that yang:

Barack Obama is the polar opposite. Obama is no miracle. Obama is a curse upon America.

Obama is sent by someone to destroy everything we love and value dearly – America, American exceptionalism, the U.S. Constitution, capitalism, Judeo-Christian values and secure borders. And add in our friendship with Israel. I believe Obama hates all of that. Obama is here to destroy all of that.

I don’t know if Obama is sent by Satan. I don’t know if Obama is sent by China and the Chinese Communist Party, or our enemies in Russia and Iran who want to destroy America. Or all of the above. But I know Obama is the real president, calling all the shots for his brain-dead dementia puppet, President Joe Biden.

And whoever sent Obama is evil and hates everything I love.

I was Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, class of 1983. If you haven’t seen my columns for the past 15 years, I never saw Obama once at Columbia even though we graduated on the same day and were both political science majors and pre-law. Strange, right? But it isn’t just me. It’s everyone at Columbia. My classmates and even my professors – no one ever saw Obama. But he claims he went there, claims he took the same classes as me, claims he graduated on the same day as me.

I think he’s the real-life “Manchurian Candidate.”

Again: Obama’s college years have been documented. And right-wingers have been smearing Obama as a “Manchurian candidate” for years, so that's not even a particularly original insult from Root.

After making the requisite Cloward-Piven reference, Root returned to his Obama paranoia:

Look around. Obama’s fingerprints are on everything happening. This is a communist takeover, combined with a massive foreign invasion. And a “communist color revolution” that has divided the country with critical race theory, “diversity, equity and inclusion” and transgender brainwashing. And a climate change and environmental, social and governance takeover that has killed our energy independence, fueled massive inflation, bankrupted the middle class and exploded the national debt. And then there’s the weaponization of government, mass censorship of conservatives and persecution of political opponents (Trump and the Jan. 6 protesters) that are hallmarks of communism.

It’s all Obama. This is his plan. His fingerprints are all over it.


Obama is also getting revenge on the man he hates – Donald J. Trump.

Obama grew up in poverty-stricken Indonesia, studying Islam at Indonesian schools, learning hate for powerful, prosperous Christian America – and resentment for powerful, filthy-rich, American capitalist business moguls like Trump.

So, Obama directed the spying on Trump. Obama directed the impeachments of Trump. Obama ordered the persecution and indictments of Trump. Obama directed the communist show trials in New York courts that could drain Trump of his fortune.

Now it all makes sense, doesn’t it? Brain-dead, diaper-wearing, dementia puppet Joe Biden could never have dreamed this plan up, or pulled it off.

And up next, I believe Biden will be replaced at the Democratic convention this summer by Michelle Obama. Obama wants back in the White House.

It’s yin vs. yang. Trump is the miracle. Obama is the curse. The two most famous and powerful men in modern history are on a collision course to decide the fate of America.

If Trump wins this battle of good vs evil, we make America great again.

If Obama wins, it’s the end of America.

As we pointed out when Root and other WND writers have made that prediction, Michelle Obama has absolutely no interest in running for president.

Root's anti-Biden rants

Root has said unhinged things about President Biden as well, while throwing Obama into the mix. He seemed to have loaded up on crazy pills in preparation for writing a July 2022 column:

It’s all out in the open now. We have a traitor and figurative suicide bomber in the White House.

No one is even bothering to hide it. President Joe Biden is clearly a suicide bomber, owned by the Chinese Communist Party and the Mexican drug cartel, and put in place to destroy America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and most importantly, the great American middle class. 

I learned this plan at Columbia University, Class of ’83, alongside my classmate, future President Barack Obama (who, as far as I know, was never actually seen in any class at Columbia – but that’s a story for another day). The plan we learned at Columbia was called “Cloward-Piven.” The goals of Cloward-Piven were about overwhelming the system, collapsing the U.S. economy, destroying capitalism and turning America into a socialist/communist country.

It’s happening right now – with Biden as the frontman and brain-dead puppet, and Obama as the real president, lurking in the shadows, pulling all the strings. 

Except now Obama has updated Cloward-Piven to include open borders and massive inflation to bankrupt the middle class.

Root is lying about Obama not attending Columbia, but you know that already. And unless Root was a student in social work, where Cloward and Piven taught at Columbia — he studied pre-law and political science — it’s highly unlikely he would have learned much about that particular strategy. Please continue: 

Biden is destroying America by opening its borders to millions of migrants and, worse, criminals from all over the world. This is about bankrupting our country and raising the national debt to levels that overwhelm the system and collapse the economy.  

Biden denies this is all about the “great replacement.” But this isn’t about replacing white voters. It’s far worse than that. All American citizens are a threat to Biden’s agenda. This is about replacing all American citizens: white Americans, black Americans and Hispanic Americans. We all need to be replaced, or at the very least overwhelmed and outvoted to usher in a socialist-communist government and economy.

Biden’s actions since day one of his presidency have been open treason. 

America’s borders are not open— Root simply thinks they are because Biden is not acting as draconian as his beloved Donald Trump did toward immigrants. Sorry you were ranting?

Now add in what I call the “inflation pandemic.” This includes the intentional destruction of the oil and energy industry, as well as farmers and the trucking industry. All done to cause massive inflation of gas, home heating oil, groceries and virtually every product brought to market. This is the purposeful bankrupting and destruction of the middle class. 

Then, only hours ago, Biden signed an executive order protecting abortion at the federal level – something the U.S. Supreme Court just struck down. No president can overrule the Supreme Court. Biden just knowingly committed a crime against the U.S. Constitution. 

The oil and gas, farming and trucking industries have not been “destroyed,” intentional or otherwise — indeed, at the time Root wrote this, the top five oil companies were generating record profits, not usually a sign of an industry being “destroyed.” And Biden’s executive order to protect access to abortion is perfectly legal and doesn’t “overrule” the Supreme Court.

But Root was winding up for his finale:

They aren’t even hiding it anymore. What does all this tell you? 

A) This is a communist takeover of the United States, aided and abetted by open borders and intentional voter fraud. 

B) They don’t care who knows. What else could explain why Biden and Democrats don’t care if the entire middle class hates their guts? This is a sign Democrats know elections are rigged and stolen. Your vote no longer matters.

Biden is escalating. This is treason on a grand scale never before imagined in the history of the United States. I believe we have a suicide bomber in the White House out to destroy our country and make our own citizens into serfs and slaves dependent on a tyrannical socialist/communist government.

It’s time to impeach Biden, then remove him on grounds of treason. Then he must be indicted for his crimes against America and the American people.

The trillion-dollar question is: When will the GOP leadership step up and publicly denounce Joe Biden as a traitor? 

Disagreement on political views is not the same as “treason.”

ConWebWatch has already noted how Root freaked out over Biden’s 2022 speech calling out the extremism of MAGA republicans like Root, huffing that the speech “was intended to incite civil war in America.” But a September 2022 column took things to another level, ranting under the headline “Biden is a figurative suicide bomber”:

Our country is being destroyed. It’s clearly a purposeful communist attack upon America from a thousand different directions. But the president isn’t Joe Biden. He is just the figurehead/puppet. The real president is former President Barack Obama.

This is clearly the third term of Obama. His fingerprints are everywhere.

No president can legally serve three terms – hence the need for a figurehead. I believe Biden is just a “DDD”: a dummy with dementia who’s in diapers. He says whatever is written on cue cards and signs whatever paper is put in front of him. That allows Obama to run the country from the shadows.

As long as they feed Biden his baby food, change his diapers and allow him to sniff little girls’ hair, Biden does whatever his handlers tell him to do. 

But Obama isn’t the brains of the operation. Obama is just a communist tool. Obama takes his orders from a team of what I consider communist suicide bombers: Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, George Soros, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates and of course, the boss of all bosses, the capo di tutti, China and the Chinese Communist Party.

Root then moved to rehashing and updating his old Obama conspiracy theories:

Obama is owned lock, stock and barrel by the deep state, the United Nations, the World Economic Forum and China.

The reason it’s important to know that I believe Obama is the real president is because Obama was my college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983 – where we learned the plan to destroy America.

That plan was called “Cloward-Piven.”

Obama learned it well. It’s happening today. Look around. The powers that be have just given it a different name: “the Great Reset.”

But the goals are the same: Destroy America; make us into a socialist nation; make everyone poor and dependent on government to survive; and make us into a one-party country (Democratic Party) with no opposition or dissent.

They are following the Cloward-Piven game plan to a T.

It’s death by a thousand paper cuts. Under eight years of Obama, they “boiled the frog slowly.” They attacked in slow motion, hoping you wouldn’t notice. Like cooking a frog, they set the temperature so low that the frog doesn’t realize he’s being boiled until he’s dead.

Then, the old discredited election fraud conspiracy theories were dragged out once again:

It all started with a stolen election.

That was No. 1. They had to remove then-President Donald Trump. There’s evidence they spied on his campaign; they spied on his actual presidency (which is treasonous); they trumped up fake charges to frame him; they spewed propaganda like the Third Reich – and they tried to impeach him multiple times over nothing.

Evidence suggests that when they failed at all of that, they simply stole the 2020 election.

Now they’ve weaponized the Department of Justice and FBI to raid the former president’s home, ruin him, demonize him, bankrupt him, frame him and indict him for crimes he didn’t commit – all to prevent him from ever running again.

Trump scares them that much.

With Trump out of the way, there is no one to stop them. Now they’re coming for you and me.

Root promised that “I’ll explain the whole TOP TEN list of the greatest scams in history, in detail, in my next column.” But that column was, instead, yet another recounting of discredited election fraud conspiracy theories and a list of “exactly where we’d be if Trump was still president of the United States.”
