Missing piece surfaces in the Obama puzzle (How Obama got into elite schools)
American Thinker ^ | 09/24/2012 | Thomas Lifson

Nobody knows for sure how Barack Obama managed to get into and pay for the elite higher education he received, particularly given his self-admitted lackadaisical approach to school in his younger years. The president's decision to keep his higher education records a secret is considered unworthy of attention by the mainstream media.

Students of Obama's rise have long been intrigued by a television interview granted by Percy Sutton, e borough president of Manhattan, and one of the most influential black politicians in New York City, in which he stated that:

"he had been introduced to Obama "by a friend who was raising money for him. The friend's name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas. He is the principal adviser to one of the world's richest men. He told me about Obama." (snip)

He also revealed that he had first heard about Obama 20 years previously in a letter where al-Mansour wrote, "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 concluded in the interview, "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."

Born the 11th of 12 children as Donald Warden to a polyglot father who often spoke glowingly about Islam, al-Mansour decided to change his name in 1964 after learning Arabic and studying Islam.

We knew about this crap in 2008 before he was elected. This is being treated like it is new, It isn’t.

We are only seeing it on the side, no one is bringing it before the major media and it won’t matter if they do.

Our Manchurian(Muslim)Resident is a phony and we all know it.
America’s ignorant will probably re-elect him.

The information about Mansour was in a book written before the election of 2008. I think I recall something about Mansour in Jerome Corsi’s book. However,for me, the most impressive book was THE CASE AGAINST BARACK OBAMA by David Freddoso. It has a great deal of WELL DOCUMENTED information that would probably shock many of the people who voted for this great mistake.

No secret there. In the 70’s if you were black and liberal elite colleges would be tripping all over each other throwing money at you in order to convince you to come.

The Percy Sutton interview.

I would urge freepers to download it and save it (the "downloadhelper" add-on for Firefox works well on youtube). Evidence that badly effects Obama tends to go "missing".

Nobody knows for sure how Barack Obama managed to get into and pay for the elite higher education he received, particularly given his self-admitted lackadaisical approach to school in his younger years.

It started from the beginning. He went to school at the elite Punahou School, a private college-prep school, "with the aid of a scholarship". He was being groomed from an early age.

Had Mr. Lifson been reading FR back in 2008, all this would not be news to him today.

Think about the information the Mossad must have on him.

Obama must be defeated.

Ever since Obama became known to the general public, he’s been touted by his leftist sycophants as being a genius. His IQ is “off the charts” (an increasingly obnoxious phrase that has crept into the vocabulary of many people in a variety of ways) they shrieked. “Well then,” said conservatives, “let’s see his academic records so we can see how big a genius he is.” “What do you want to see that for?” yelped the Obama toadies, “none of your business.”

In that Obama’s maternal grandfather was a CIA agent, and his mother was a wholly owned property of the CIA, and that Obama’s history was at great expense professionally scrubbed in ways that could have only be done by one or more US agencies, I’m seeing a trend here.

One of the FBI’s greatest success stories was called “Operation Solo”, in which they managed to place an agent in the inner corridors of the Kremlin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Solo

The value of this operative was immense, and several times he likely, on his own, managed to prevent World War III.

However, though even the CIA did not know of Solo, one of their highest Cold War priorities of the CIA was to do the same. The CIA had learned, by infiltrating the Soviet supported radical left in the US, what they used as their criteria to select operatives to use against America.

Such operatives would be cultivated, and encouraged to travel to the Soviet Union and study at Moscow University, with the idea of their becoming major leaders among the left in the US.

It was preferred that they were ethnic minorities, and that they had already been “educated” by American radicals and embraced their ideology. They would then travel to the Soviet Union for further training, then returned to the US, as trusted agents to work against America.

But if one of them was a double agent, the CIA could wipe out entire networks of radicals in the US. But the CIA would have to be extremely careful, because any error and the agent would be killed.

So after all that hard work, with three generations of agents, suddenly the Cold War ended. “So what the heck do we do with this double agent?”

But what about Saudi funding? No real dilemma there. The Saudis had their own agenda, and if they were willing to fund one of our double agents thinking that it would advance the cause of Islam, fine and dandy. Just another layer of concealment to hide his CIA associations.

Somewhere there is a video of Valerie Jarrett gushing about how he is so brilliant that mere mortals just can’t grasp his brilliance. Well I paraphrased but in essence that is what she was trying to say. I’’ll have to see if I can find it. Makes me sick, personally I don’t know how he gets out of bed without hurting himself.
