The website’s domain name — thetrenches.us — was registered using 9220 Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles as its contact address. That commercial office building on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood houses Ford Models, Abrams Artists, Atlas Entertainment and Media Talent Group, Mosaic Los Angeles, Sotheby’s Auction House, Comerica and Pat Boone Enterprises.
Bayne refused to identify the building tenant that registered his website, but he did confirm that Boone, an outspoken conservative who has made headlines in the past questioning Obama’s U.S. citizenship, is not connected to the effort.
Asked what he expects to find in Obama’s college transcripts, should they turn up, Bayne said that could challenge conventional wisdom about the types of classes he took and the grades he received.
“All we have heard from the media is how much smarter Barack is than all the other candidates,” he explained.
He also suspects Obama’s coursework could highlight his “hardcore leftist-slash-progressive-slash-neo-marxist point of view.”
“I don’t think it is a conspiracy to say someone can have that viewpoint,” he told TheDC. ”There are other people in America who have that view point.”
But by keeping his college history out of public view, Bayne suggested, Obama may be hiding something he should be honest about.
“If you are going to have a viewpoint, take a stand,” he said. “Don’t be a pussy about it, seriously.”
