Obama had close ties to top Saudi adviser at early age
newsmax ^ | Wednesday, 03 Sep 2008 | Ken Timmerman

New evidence has emerged that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was closely associated as early as age 25 to a key adviser to a Saudi billionaire who had mentored the founding members of the Black Panthers. In a videotaped interview this year on New York’s all news cable channel NY1, a prominent African-American businessman and political figure made the curious disclosures about Obama. (See Video Clip Below) Percy Sutton, the former borough president of Manhattan, off-handedly revealed the unusual circumstances about his first encounter with the young Obama. “I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,” Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter. “The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas,” Sutton said. “He is the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men. He told me about Obama.” Sutton, the founder of Inner City Broadcasting, said al-Mansour contacted him to ask a favor: Would Sutton write a letter in support of Obama’s application to Harvard Law School? “He wrote to me about him,” Sutton recalled. “And his introduction was there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends up there because you used to go up there to speak. Would you please write a letter in support of him?” Sutton said he acted on his friend al-Mansour’s advice. “I wrote a letter of support of him to my friends at Harvard, saying to them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly,” Sutton told NY1. Sutton did not say why al-Mansour was helping Obama, how he discovered him, or from whom he was raising money on Obama’s behalf.

It's a lengthy article but need to read.

Saudis in general seem to have too much influence on our presidents, Bush too. I’m not a big conspiracy guy but I wonder how much harder it could be for a non-Saudi connected person to win the presidency? I would be surprised to find that Sarah Palin has any Saudi connections. She may need us with our pitchforks to get there. Yup, revolution might be in the air by 2012.

Keep digging, ye sons of freedom. Obama’s whole background has been obscured on purpose as to avoid the finding of nuggets of truth as to his supporters/manipulators. You have to admit their choice of this manchurian candidate was right on; now we have to unwind it and take it down, piece by piece, thru the democratic and legal process, as quickly as possible before any more damage is done. And let the vetting process regarding any future candidates (or current ones for that matter) begin with true transparency as to avoid these kinds of catastrophes in the future.

Sutton’s death is widely celebrated as an event long overdue. Percy is a criminal, race hustler and a scam artist. His death is addition by subtraction.

And the reason why I heard about this over a year ago is because this story was published over a year ago.

Making Obama the Mansourian candidate. Explains the bowing and scraping doesn't it?

Khalid al Mansour’s birth name is Donald Warden, a lawyer and black nationalist associated with the Black Panthers, whose founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale he mentored.

He is an advisor to al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, the guy whose check Rudy Guiliani refused to accept after 9/11 because it was an insult. Talal is known for funding islamic centers at US ivy league schools, and for having extensive dealings in Africa.

You say, “...And let the vetting process regarding any future candidates begin with true transparency as to avoid these kinds of catastrophes in the future....”

Agreed.

I think states should immediately enact laws not allowing any candidate to run in their state on a national or state level who has not provided a VERIFIED BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

No doubt about that. He’s afraid that his carefully constructed house of cards will come crashing down if just one card is pulled out.

Thanks for the info about Prince al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz al Saud.

I tried to add his name as a FR keyword for future reference but couldn’t because it’s over 20 letters. Found some info here as to how to shorten it...

Hmmm... Keyword "al-Waleed bin Talal" leads to this article...

Feds Bail Out Rich Arabs In Citigroup Deal

"For several days there was a fierce national debate over whether American car companies in Detroit deserved $25 billion of taxpayer money and whether American jobs should be saved."
...
"But Citigroup got $20 billion over the weekend from the Treasury Department without any national debate or discussion at all. The Federal Reserve simply issued a press release on Sunday afternoon announcing that the taxpayers were on the hook not only for the $20 billion but $306 billion in loans to the company. That’s on top of a previous $25 billion invested in the company by the Treasury Department."
...
"Auto company executives may have flown to Washington, D.C. on private jets, as O’Reilly and others noted, but Saudi Arabian prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who has a major stake in Citigroup and also invests in the Fox News parent company, News Corporation, reportedly lives in a $100-million 317-room Riyadh palace. A nephew of Saudi King Abdullah, Alwaleed has been called the “Warren Buffet of the Gulf” and runs the Kingdom Holding Company.

Is this somebody who should be bailed out by American taxpayers?"

Subversives For Obama

"A few months ago, a claim was made by former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton that Obama had been funded through Harvard law school by Khalid Al-Mansour, a ‘mentor’ to the founders of the Black Panther party and advisor to ‘one of the world’s richest men,’ Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal. It was Prince Alwaleed whose $10 million check to help rebuild Manhattan after 9/11 was refused by New York mayor Rudy Guiliani because the Saudi prince hinted publicly that America’s pro-Israel policies were to blame for the attacks.

According to this story by Kenneth Timmerman, Camp Obama denied this claim -- and referred to a story on Politico.com in which reporter Ben Smith wrote that ‘a spokesman for Sutton’s family, Kevin Wardally’ said that Sutton had been mistaken when he made those comments. But when contacted, Sutton’s family not only denied that Sutton had misspoken but also said they had never even heard of Kevin Wardally – who appears to work for a Harlem political consulting firm.

So the claim that Obama was funded through Harvard by a radical Black Muslim activist with ties to the Saudis remains on the table."

It is hard to keep up with all of these criminal associations.

I have wondered what is the CIA/FBI waiting for? I am sure that someone knows alot more about Obama than just we mere “citizens”. Are they waiting for him to participate in a direct attack on US citizens before they “take him down?”

I agree and I really wonder! Obama told Congress no investigation re Hasan, now he’s stonewalling Congress re the underwear bomber. Congress needs to get some backbone quick! They’ve let him get away with appointing all these Czars and I feel like Obama thinks he can do whatever he wants. Mega Dictator imo.

In “Dreams of My Father”, Obama mentions FRANK, a lefty brothuh in Hawaii who would come over and over the course of years hung out with Obama’s grandfather. He was over there because Obama was in (mostly) non-black Hawaii, and the boy was growing up in an all-white household; he needed mentoring in “how to be black”, and commie Frank did fit that bill.

Before moving to Hawaii, Frank was from CHICAGO, where the Nation of Islam is HQ’ed.

Frank was PROBABLY sent out there to mentor this Punaho boy —he was a long-term, long-shot investment. My guess is that al-Mansour was the Chicago guy who sent Frank out there.

In short, it is possible that Obama is the Nation of Islam POTUS.

This helps explain why the DoJ dropped the Black Panther case. Very corrupt group.
