Skip to comments.How Obama Got Into Harvard
Posted on 05/28/2010 5:04:22 AM PDT by Sioux-san
Two years ago I inadvertently began my exploration of the authorship of Barack Obamas 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father, with an inquiry into how Obama got into Harvard Law School in 1988.
In the summer of 2008, I was tipped to a story that the media were scrupulously ignoring. It involved the venerable African American entrepreneur and politico, Percy Sutton.
A Manhattan borough president for 12 years and a credible candidate for mayor of New York City in 1977, Sutton had appeared in late March 2008 on a local New York City show called " Inside City Hall."
When asked about Obama by the shows host, Dominic Carter, the octogenarian Sutton calmly and lucidly explained that he had been introduced to [Obama] by a friend.
The friend's name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, and the introduction had taken place about 20 years prior. Sutton described al-Mansour as "the principal adviser to one of the world's richest men." The billionaire in question was Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
According to Sutton, al-Mansour had asked him to "please write a letter in support of [Obama] ... a young man that has applied to Harvard." Sutton had friends at Harvard and gladly did so.
Three months before the election it should have mattered that a respected black political figure had publicly announced that a crazed anti-Semite like al-Mansour, backed by an equally bonkers Saudi billionaire, had been guiding Obamas career perhaps for the last twenty years, but the story died a quick and unnatural death.
The books that might have shed some light on this incident have not done so. John Heilemann and Mark Halperins comprehensive look at the 2008 campaign, Game Change, does not so much as mention Percy Sutton.

Two words: Affirmative Action
Obama got into Harvard because....”a respected black political figure had publicly announced that a crazed anti-Semite like al-Mansour, backed by an equally bonkers Saudi billionaire, had been guiding Obamas career perhaps for the last twenty years,...”
...this should be the lead paragraph...it answers the question...then elaborate on it...too many articles these days are too wordy...writers need to get to the point...no American writer could write a simple declarative sentence like Ernest Hemingway...and he started off as a newspaper man.
“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
and Let’s see the records.
....?????...there was a coupon entry form on the back of a pack of Kools?
Forget the birth certificate, I wanna see the LSATs, SATs and college transcripts!
Connect the dots continues...check it out. This Dr. Mansour is speaking this weekend at the National Black Panther convention in Altlanta. Check the speaker list.
From the website: “NATIONAL Black Power Convention and Black Power Convention Schedule of Events”
Can you imagine having a national white power convention? This is wrong on so many levels..
So Obama had a Saudi “sugar daddy” ....that explains the DEEP bow to the Saudis. I thought Obama was going to fall.
“Forget the birth certificate, I wanna see the LSATs, SATs and college transcripts!”
I am with you all the way!
Social security fraud?
Credit identity theft?
Student loans under false applications?
The question is how Obama got these kind of connections? His mother was a hanger on in radical left and Marxist circles, but unlikely had those kind of connections. Obama senior also had associations with leftist and Marxist groups, but was either not in the USA or deceased when Obama Jr. would have needed them for admission to the Ivy League. Obama's second step father, Sotero, was Indonesian and likely had no connections in the US.
Perhaps Obama's connections are through a real birth father. The suppression of Obama's birth certificate might have nothing to do with his place of birth, but who was named as his father.
Like the article states..."Jimmy Hoffa's body will be unearthed" before that happens!
I like how Jack exposed michelle as another affirmative action kid in over her head and that might explain the inferiority complex she always exposes to us in her hate filled speech.
Or even an illegal alien power convention.... oh, never mind.
I can almost hear the In Search Of theme music and Leonard Nimoy voiceover announcing that after the DB Cooper episode it will BO.
Yeah makes you wonder why zero is so quick to stop ALL oil drilling for 6 months. Screwing American workers_yet again_
Gift to Saudis. Man that’s some payback.
See my homepage for more details.
Ol’ Uncle Frank comes to mind - but don’t hold your breath- the real babydaddy is not on the birth certificate, I guarantee. Maybe Barry’s mama isn’t his real mama either. Anyone ever see her pregnant?
Michelle frequently deplores the modern reliance on test scores, describing herself as a person who did not test well.
“I don’t test well” is a claim made by every dumb@ss whose self esteem is far beyond their accomplishments. Since they are so sure of their superiority, it must be the tests that are flawed. Barack and Michelle are the culmination of affirmative action. Two people with average IQs (at best) who got into prestigious schools they were unqualified to attend, who undoubtedly would have flunked out except for their race, and who used their ill gotten degrees as proof of “high intelligence” and “competence”.
It was a coupon which, when combined with sufficient similar coupons, would entitle you to various prizes.
It is appropriate that Mansour address the Black Panther conference.
Khalid al-Mansour was originally named Donald Warden. As Donald Warden, he mentored Bobby Seale and Huey Newton, founders of the Black Panthers. It's in the Congressional Record as well. See my FR Homepage for details. I had this up there back in 2008.
Frank Marshall Davis.
The Saudi sugar daddy info has been out for years. There’s even a video of the interview.
What I want to know is who is who is this “Northwestern University prof who wrote a letter of reference for Obama.” What’s his name and why would he know anything about Hussein? Was he another associated the Weather Underground? Of course, Tom Ayers had just finished his tenure as Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Northwestern and was a Life Trustee. This backs up the mail carrier’s story about meeting Hussein at Tom’s house in the early 80s and is further proof Bill wasn’t just another guy in the neighborhood in Sept. 2009.
For what it's worth, most law schools use blind grading.
He got them through Frank Marshall Davis, his childhood mentor in Hawaii whom he mentions in "Dreams from my Father". Davis was a good friend of Obama's grandfather.
Davis, before moving to Hawaii, was big in the Chicago Communist Party. It's likely that a recommendation from Davis would have opened doors to the Chicago Radical Left.
See my FR homepage for details.
He got in just like the rest of us got into college. Had his path cleared for him, didn’t have to actually make grades, and was celebrated for his achievements. Kind of funny that NO ONE has come forward with memories of their college days with Barry sotero hussein barak obama. You would think there is at least one doofus that would want the media attention.
“The question is how Obama got these kind of connections? His mother was a hanger on in radical left and Marxist circles, but unlikely had those kind of connections.”
Zero’s mother was like the mother in Rosemary’s Baby who gave birth to the son of Satan. Just someone who happened to carry the Evil One.

Then how does a person who writes like a high school student graduate from Harvard Law?
I agree - but I want the birth certificate, too. This is the LEAST that should be asked of ANYONE who seeks the presidency. I am sure that future candidates will have to supply all of this and more - with authentication - after what we have been through with this pretender. If we have a country left after Barry Sotero gets done with it, that is.
My guess as well.
No doubt he was. Assuming President Jug Ears has an IQ in the range of 98 to 105, he would have to have a stratospheric intelligence compared to Oprah's acquaintances.
The thing that gets me about all this is how somebody with no real power or influence comes to be so guided and helped by powerful people. I know this sounds crazy and I hate to say it but it seems evil, as if the real face of evil is behind it all. Either that or all this is just conspiracy nonsense and none of this saudi crap and all the other stuff is true?
I can’t tell you that. But I can tell you that Harvard has had blind grading since the 19th century.
” What I want to know is who is who is this Northwestern University prof who wrote a letter of reference for Obama.”
“Barack and Michelle are the culmination of affirmative action. Two people with average IQs (at best) who got into prestigious schools they were unqualified to attend “
I must say, however, that as someone who has undoubtedly benefited from affirmative action programs during my academic career, and as someone who may have benefited from the Law Reviews affirmative action policy when I was selected to join the Review last year, I have not felt stigmatized within the broader law school community or as a staff member of the Review.
Just replace each comma with an "uhh" and that's the way the great orator speaks.
But her father may have had them. His roots in the radical community were old and deep -- going back to the time when these associations had to be kept secret.
MANY universities make special allowances in admissions for family members.
I remember Michelle stating that her high school counselor told her to NOT apply to Princeton, that her grades were awful, that she'd never be accepted, etc ---- it's been so long since I heard the original story, but I do remember that her acceptance into the Ivy League was due to her brother's earlier acceptance on a basketball scholarship.
Michelle got into Princeton because her brother was a star basketball player. Remember her brother is the coach at Oregon State and was fired until the school got millions in stimulus dollars. Then they resigned him.
“I cant tell you that. But I can tell you that Harvard has had blind grading since the 19th century.”
Music schools usually have blind auditions for chair, where the candidates play behind a curtain. It’s largely a farce since the instructors know the sound of each person’s instrument as well subtle differences in style. It may be the same in written tests at Law school.
