Top-level A&M official resigns amid questions over credentials [Violated Stolen Valor Act]
The Eagle newspaper, Bryan-College Station, texas ^ | June 19, 2010 | VIMAL PATEL

Posted on 07/08/2010 3:25:01 PM PDT by summer


"Dr" Alex Kemos

Texas A&M's No. 3 administrator presented himself as a warrior-scholar: A former Navy SEAL with a doctorate from Tufts University.

But records obtained by The Eagle indicate Alexander Kemos never was part of the elite fighting force, and Texas A&M officials confirmed Friday that he doesn't have a doctorate or even a master's degree, which was a posted requirement for the $300,000-a-year position that serves as the top adviser to Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin. ...

Re: “Kemos and his wife are die-hard 0bama activists (who lied about Kemos teaching at Harvard, too).”

What makes you think so?

In any event - time will tell what is really going on with this fraud who was at Texas A&M.

We’ll see.

Read post #46. The man who you falsely claimed as being groomed for Jeb Bush (a Republican politician), publicly supports 0bama.

That’s from your own link.

You are doing too much speculating and too little reading.

Post #46. Kemos loves 0bama, Jeb Bush’s competition in 2012.

"Re: “(who lied about Kemos teaching at Harvard, too).” And what makes you think that?"

Because unlike you, I read the article. It states that Kemos has no Master's degree...has no PhD.

Who's going to get a job teaching at Harvard without advanced degrees?!

Re: “You are an idiot.”

Like I said, we’ll see what happens.

I think you’ll be surprised at the facts in this matter, if all the facts ever come out.

And I do think he was being groomed to be Jeb’s VP running mate. But, he got busted. He’s outed as a fake.

I’m wondering if he is CIA, too. But frankly, I don’t care. He had no business pretending to be a Navy SEAL.

And no business pretending to have the public trust at a public university. But the jerks who run that school don’t seem to care much about students or the faculty; politics reigns supreme.

Anyway, enough for me. I don’t know much about the guy who just won in South Carolina - Marvin Gay or Al Green or whatever his name may be, but I thought it quite interesting that because he is unemployed military, and was unknown prior to his win, people could not accept he won.
I think more unknown people should run for office. Enough dynansties already. Enough politicians. Enough.

“The man..” — no, you are incorrect. The man’s wife — who did not falsely claim she was a Navy SEAL — apparently wrote whatever.

You’re welcome.

While you are a student, you can teach. He did not finish any advanced degrees, but apparently taught as a student while enrolled in a program.

Hope that answers your question. G’night.

That's insane. Kemos is on record supporting 0bama, Jeb's competition in 2012.

You simply don't have the dignity to admit when you are wrong.

You've sunk so low as to **defend** Kemos, the stolen valor creep who you've been blasting...rather than to admit that you were wrong about your bizarre Jeb Bush claim.

Classless.

Re: “people” could not accept he won.

And actually what I meant to say is this: it was the politicians who could not handle it. But the people did vote for him and he beat a judge I think I read.

As for Kemos, I read all the articles, several times. I hope he fries. Along with those who wrote his fake Navy SEAL details on his resume.

I posted that for you. That is some piece of creating writing.

And his fake mentoring of students, who wanted to be Navy SEALS, was really heinous, IMO.

Anyway, good night!

PS “You simply don’t have the dignity to admit when you are wrong.”

I was wrong to support Jeb Bush at one time. I admit it. Are you happy now?

BTW, I have my dignity. And I never claimed to be a Navy SEAL. What this jerk Kemos did is just pathetic.

And I am sure - sure - he did not do it all by his little lonesome self. No one pulls out fake details about the Navy SEALS like he did on his resume.

I know that link was on my post. I am not familiar with what you posted being linked on the article or linked to it. Who knows what that email is. I certainly don’t know.

No, we won’t see. That’s just a cop out because YOU WON’T ADMIT THAT YOU WERE WRONG TO CLAIM THAT KEMOS HAD A BUSH CONNECTION.

The Kemos family in Massachusetts donated to Democrat Paul Tsongas.

Kemos/wife writes glowing praise of 0bama support, publicly.

NEWSFLASH! 0bama and Tsongas are DEMOCRATS. The Bush’s are REPUBLICANS.

You are WRONG.

We won’t see. There’s no reason to wait. The evidence is already IN.

You simply don’t have the class to admit that you were wrong.

It’s not in you.

PS As I already posted:

If you google “bush” and “kemos” and “china” here is what comes up:

[PDF]
George Bush China-U.S. Relations Conference: Development, Energy ...
File Format: PDF/Adobe Acrobat - Quick View
George Bush China-U.S. Relations Conference: Development, Energy, and Security ... Dr. Alexander Kemos, Partner, Nordic-American Corporate Development and ...
china-us.tamu.edu/.../Agriculture-20Forum-20Final-20Report.pdf - Similar

If you go to page 2 of this offical TAMU doc about a 2007 conference in DC with Chinese officials, here is what you’ll find —

“Dr. Alexander Kemos, Partner, Nordic-American Corporate Development and
Finance Company, gave the second lead presentation titled “The Political Economy of Food
Safety Infrastructure and Economics in China.” He advised the U.S. stakeholders to avoid
project mirror images onto the receiving end in China. Dr. Kemos emphasized the importance
of acculturation and mutual understanding as the key to successful collaboration.”

—and bear in mind the “Dr” part of that “Dr” Kemos is a fake.

What makes you think this Kemos family lives in that state?
Maybe they live next door to GH Bush in Maine.

BTW, I accept your apology for being rude to me.

I am sure you have it in you to apologize to me, even if you didn’t.

And, again, I do hope this guy fries. And gets jail time for pretending to students he was a Navy SEAL, and all the wrongs he did, whether on his own — which I doubt — or with others, and regardless of who they may be (or not be).

I think this fake was being prepped to be Jeb’s VP.

BTW I am glad someone said this fake should be jailed. I agree. And if Jeb and his brother and his father were all in on it too, well, I am sorry but: that’s a conspiracy. They should all be jailed if that is indeed the case.

Well, here's a fact for you -- Jeb and his father and his brother probably won't put out a press release announcing they got busted for their scheme, if indeed it was them or any one or two of them behind this. So, you're gonna be waiting a long time if that's the kind of fact you're looking for.

And if you're looking for any university officials who may be involved to likewise announce their involvement to the world, that would probably be a long wait as well.

But the Stolen Valor guys at Stolenvalor.com didn't have any hesitation about including Alex Kemos on their "ecured Targets" list.

And the 23 year-old student who allegedly faked his way into Harvard and allegedly stole $45,000 in financial aid monies is facing 20 criminal counts and up to 50 years in prison right now.

So, here is what I am speculating: if by chance any one else at that university, along with ALex Kemos, ever gets charged with any crimes -- for allegedly stealing $300,000 in taxpayer funded salary, violating Stolen Valor, etc -- they might want to shave off some jail time and cooperate with authorities. At that point, should that point ever arrive, perhaps you will get some additional information about any other co-conspirators.

In the meantime, here is a news article about the 23-year old who is facing up to 50 years in prison --

Adam Wheeler the mind behind the Harvard Hoax charged with larceny and identity fraud

I don't know if the law only applies to the Little People like this kid, or if Alex Kemos or Alex Kemos & Company if there is such will ever face this kind of potential punishment. We'll see.

Good luck.

And BTW, it is indeed just a wild guess on my part that perhaps, if there is indeed a conspiracy, and if indeed anyone at that university is charged, or if Alex Kemos is charged, that yes - they might be interested in cooperating to shave off some jail time threatened, should they ever find themselves threatened with up to 50 years in prison and 20 criminal counts like the 23-year old student whose alleged crimes did not even involve any Stolen Valor violation or the alleged theft of $300K taxpayer money. This kid allegedly stole a fraction of the money Kemos got, and this kid is looking at up to 50 years in jail -- that's a fact.

Again, good luck!

Your speculations are backed up with your feelings..nothing more..
It would have been better if your thread dwelt on the subject..but you had to interject your feelings and wild speulations about Jeb.
.The result is that you don’t come off as a person with information..just feelings like those that might come from a scorned lover.

"Well, here's a fact for you -- Jeb and his father and his brother probably won't put out a press release..."

"Probably won't" is not a fact. You are showing a difficulty in differentiating from facts versus speculation.

Please. Seek professional medical help immediately. It could save your life.

Correct. An A+ for you.

And after the "selectors" -- the handlers (aka: Jeb et al is my prediction).

Glad to know you believe this fake's goose should be cooked! I hope so, too! (And I believe all Americans with even just a shred of honesty would agree.)

I have been out of the military for 20 years and I have yet to hold a job or a professional license that didn’t want to see a copy of my DD 214 beforehand. If this bozo graduated from BUD/S 93, it should have been noted on his DD, just like my Aerospace Medicine Primary Course was.
