Percy Sutton dies; His Obama revelation omitted from obituaries
Legendary lawyer and politician Percy Sutton has died at the age of 89, and the major media are omitting mention of one of his most notable acts. The former Borough President of Manhattan, Sutton had a long and distinguished career as a lawyer (he was Malcolm X's attorney) and media mogul, who purchased radio stations in New York and other cities, making them into high rated black-oriented outlets. He also purchased and renovated (thereby saving from the wrecking ball) New York's legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem. To top it off, Sutton was member of the Tuskegee Airmen, one of the most celebrated groups in military aviation circles. A man of great accomplishment, whatever else one might think about his politics, and a man worthy of great respect.
However, one of Sutton's most notable moments is absent from the media hagiographies I have seen: he stated on television that he knew that an Islamic supremacist, Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, and advisor to a wealthy Saudi, had paid for Barack Obama's education at Harvard Law School.
Exactly how young Barack Obama, a man of slender means, managed to pay for a Harvard Law degree has long been a mystery, and the President has not been forthcoming about any details of his elite education.
See for yourself, Sutton's remarkable statement, which has been considgned to the Memory Hole, by the major media. Not even a reference to a "controversial contention" or other such euphemism. It simply never happened as far as the media are concerned.
bump for later
Khalid al Mansour was the money-man to pay Obama way into Harvard. Sutton pulled favors for this crack using nobody (Obama)—cause he was ‘black” and malleable, merchandisable.
Michelle Obama in one of her legion of oily lies, claimed Obama took out a ‘student loan’. No record of that of course, because it is a LIE.
It is remarkable what traitors the media of this country are to block all reporting of the many, many questionable, unsavory and even dangerous associations of this so-called ‘president.
THANKS FOR THE LINK!!!
There's nothing to see here. These aren't the droids we're looking for. Move along, move along..
Obama is really stinky.
Why would a Saudi pay for his education?
Sutton said he was asked by Monsour to send a letter of recommendation but there was no mention of him or anyone else paying for Obama’s tuition.......Not that it didn’t happen but its not in the video.
Have you ever noted our president's strong physical resemblance to Malcom X? maybe this coincidence touched the saudi’s heartstrings (err, purse strings)
I guess it turns out that foreign nationals don’t make very good Presidents. Who would have guessed?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Isn’t it amazing the MSM can dig up everything ever done by Tiger Woods but find nothing about Obama.
Well, it was a loan, to the Saudis and now he’s paying in back.
We are living in a world of false reality, and spoon fed information by those in power for their selected purposes.
Thank God the old “mainstream” newsrooms are dying.
I just wish they’d hurry up and be dead.
Throwing politics aside, Percy Sutton was a real behind the scenes powerbroker in New York State. That, and he was a pretty damn good businessman.
And I thought Clinton got cut slack from the media.
