Missing Piece Surfaces in the Obama Puzzle

~The Probable Power-brokers behind Obama~

by Thomas Lifson September 24, 2012

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, the 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.”
At the time the interview was granted in 2008, the Obama campaign succeeded in keeping it out of the mainstream media by having family members put out the story that Sutton in essence was a doddering old man.
That’s all the media lackeys needed as an excuse to consign the interview to the memory hole, protecting the American public from any disturbing connections of President Obama to the Saudis.

But, as the Bard wrote, “The truth will out.” Not from the media lick-spittles of Manhattan and the beltway, of course, but from a newspaperman in Kalispell, Montana fer-cryin’outloud.
Frank Miele, of the Daily Inter-Lake newspaper was reading through old newspaper and came across a syndicated column written by a Chicago Tribune columnist in 1979 that provides a fascinating light on the nature of the cabal that seems to have formed around Barack Obama.

So far as I know, this 1979 column has not previously been brought to light, but it certainly should be because it broke some very interesting news about the “rumored billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions.”
The columnist quoted a black San Francisco lawyer who said, “It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states.”

Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer – Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name: Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.

Al-Mansour told Jarrett that he had presented the “proposed special aid program to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz” in September 1979, and that “the first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in December.”

Maybe so, but I looked high and wide in newspapers in 1979 and 1980 for any other stories about this aid package funded by OPEC and never found it verified.
You would think that a program to spend “$20 million per year for 10 years to aid 10,000 minority students each year, including blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans” would be referred to somewhere other than one obscure 1979 column, but I haven’t found any other word of it.

Maybe the funding materialized, maybe it didn’t, but what’s particularly noteworthy is that this black Islamic lawyer who “for several years [had] urged the rich Arab kingdoms to cultivate stronger ties to America’s blacks by supporting black businesses and black colleges and giving financial help to disadvantaged students” was also the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.

The kicker here is that the 1979 column was written by none other than Vernon Jarrett, longtime influential black Chicago Leftist, -close friend of Frank Marshall Davis [Communist mentor of teenage Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama], and father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, the closest aide to President Obama, and a major figure in his rise within the Chicago political world.

There is no proof of anything here, of course. We don’t know that a close associate of the Saudi royal family funneled oil money into the education of Barack Obama (and presumably other Americans) on spec, hoping he would rise through the political system and be in a position to stifle American oil production and take a hard line against Israel’s defense against a nuclear attack.
There is no proof of it. But there is a reasonable suspicion, given the pedigrees of Jarrett and Sutton, that these influential figures actually do know something about the inside story of the curious, inexplicable rise of Barack Obama on the slender reed of his actual accomplishments in life.

Update from Cindy Simpson:

I also researched this a bit yesterday when the news first hit, and found some more interesting connections/pieces:
The Sutton story was “BenSmithed” in 2008 here.
The Lynn Sweet “exclusive” article that mentioned the Obama campaign disclosure info on Obama’s student loan $’s. http://web.archive.org/web/20081211025538/http:/www.suntimes.com/news/politics/obama/1064437,CST-NWS-sweet20.article

Amanda Carpenter’s Townhall column  http://townhall.com/columnists/amandacarpenter/2008/08/26/another_radical_obama_association/page/full/
described Mansour’s beliefs and why the connection to Obama would be damning.

Kenneth Timmerman’s articles on Newsmax. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/khalid-al-mansour-Obama/2008/09/04/id/325191
This one is especially interesting because it addresses in detail Obama’s tax returns and candidate disclosures on interest/loans. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/khalid-al-mansour-Obama/2008/09/04/id/325191

It’s also interesting to recall the nine people charged with illegally accessing Obama’s student loan records. http://www.wnd.com/2010/08/196149/

Also recall Paul Kengor’s work on Frank Marshall Davis and the fact that he worked with Vernon Jarrett in Chicago. http://spectator.org/archives/2012/08/03/all-in-the-political-family/

Please read the Townhall article which quotes Mansour in a most graphic way. What he says in that article about white people and what God wants Muslims to do to them is something all of us need to understand! This tells us who Khalid Mansour is and why the L.A. times is hiding that video clip.


I have read that a rich Saudi family paid Harvard University one million dollars to admit Obama because he did not have the grades but that he was a devout muslim. Obama and Moochelle are products of Affirmative Action and it shows.
His second book was composed by someone with the writing skills of a ninth grader. Billions are being spent on remedial education and we are producing mostly illiterates because they just want to shoot basketballs, sell dope, and listen to horrible music.

Not a bow, nor a curtsey. Obama was trying to kiss King Abdullah’s hand as acknowledgement of his status as guardian of Mecca and Medina. That’s what he was really doing. [it wasn’t showing submission to his royalty but to his pre-eminence as guardian of his beloved Islam.]

I don’t remember any of the other Presidents doing that. So why do you suppose the Bamster thought he needed to do that? Hmmm, maybe because he’s a muslim or a muslim sympathizer. Take your pick.

That’s just it. It was a thousand times worse than a mere bow. By trying to kiss Abdullah’s hand he was acknowledging Abdullah’s superainty over him. Look at the picture, the king was taken utterly by surprise.


Joel Gilbert produced a DVD titled “Dreams From My Real Father.” It is an amazing well documented DVD. It was two years in the making, great research. Joel is an amazing Patriot, he puts journalists to shame with this DVD.
He did a great deal of research about the Obama Chicago connection to just about every Communist and Communist organization in Chicago, all of it backed up with research.
Obama is indeed a fraud, a criminal and a Saul Alinsky trained liar. People frown when you label Obama a Socialist. Obama is a Communist, the old expression about if it quacks like a duck it is more than likely a duck.
No one can have all those Communists connections and not be a Communist. If Obama is re-elected you will see him begin to act more and more like a Marxist/Communist.

The Muslims have been pursuing American blacks for decades. Besides our prisons, look at Mohammed Ali and Kareem Abdul Jabar. Notice they changed their assumed Christian names to Muslim names when they “converted”. Funny- Obama took on a Muslim name when he “converted” to Christianity.
American blacks who carry a permanent grudge against all whites for slavery adopt the religion of their biggest and longest slavers – Arab Muslims. How can one respect anyone so uncomprehending of their OWN history?

And worse, uncomprehending or dismissive even after having it ‘splained to them…

Do you really call Rev. Wright’s hate-spewing so called church “Christian”? What’s Christian about it? Calling that “Christian” is akin to calling Islam a “religion of peace”.
Remember, one of the most beautiful sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer.
So says our President.
Also, the problem with the L.A. Times tape is not the praise Obama heaps on Khalid. But maybe it is the recognition during that unguarded, unscripted, off-teleprompter comment that he might acknowledge how he got into Harvard and what he owes to his benefactor.


Oh Pah-leeeeze! don’t act like this is new information. It has been around since before the 2008 election. The problem is that NOBODY cared. Anyone who was following the 2008 election knew who Obama was at the time. Still, he got 53% of the vote. America has changed. Obama is evidence of that. America deserves Obama.

EXACTLY RIGHT! I was blogging and posting this information, Dumbo’s commie links, his DSA links in Chicago, etc, and NO ONE CARED!
America is getting the exact leadership it deserves.

It’s true that Obama alone is not the problem. It’s the people who elected him, especially the ones who plan to vote for him again after his stinking record that are America’s biggest problem.


There’s so many people who have bit on the victim/oppressed/entitlement ideology that until they can come to realize any different, they’ll continue to vote for those who advocate this ideology.

It’s sad that they don’t have higher standards and expectations for themselves and their children than to be enslaved to an ideology based on what you cannot do, are not responsible for, or are incapable of due to phantoms.

This information is the “smoking gun”, and it is very much in line with what we have known and what we have suspected. Much thanks to a true reporter, Frank Miele in Montana. And much thanks to Mr. Lifson. This is important.

The muslim influence has been consequential in our country—especially the Sunni Wahhabist influence. They have funded hundreds, perhaps thousands, of mosques in our country.

They are behind the Muslim Brotherhood mega-mosque being pushed at Ground Zero, with the blessing of Barack Hussein Obama—and Mayor Bloomberg, among others. They were behind the building of the E. 96th or 97th Street mosque in NYC.
It took ten years to fight those who opposed them; they finally won. The “imam” of this mosque was the father of the so called “imam” (slum landlord) behind the Ground Zero mosque that is being foisted on our country. You will, likely, not read that in the MSM.

I do know that the Saudis, some time in the late 1970s, began funding programs at Georgetown University—the oldest Catholic University in America. They, now, have quite a foothold there, with muslim apologists on the faculty.

It is the same university that covered the crucifix for Obama, and whose president praised Ms. Fluck.
We have been asleep in this country, while muslim money, Soros money, and Communists in our schools and universities have been working to reduce America’s standing, so that they may conquer the world for Islam or Communism, as the case may be.
And, unbelievable as it seems, Barack Hussein Obama is “watching all of their backs” as he bleeds us dry. We will fight back!

We The People are just awakening from our slumber. It is time to PROTECT America, instead of foisting “Democracy” on Fascists who interpret it to mean Sharia law and the spread of Islam, eventually across the globe.

Barack Hussein Obama is a TRAITOR. He is one of them. He is not for America.
People who were my friends, who I thought of as reasonably intelligent, will spew the news media propaganda at every turn, in answer to questions or inconvenient facts I might have the “audacity” of raising in their presence.
This not only makes me hateful, and sick, it genuinely makes me feel I want to distance myself from them, and let their traitorous anti-American leftist bilge dissipate from my memory and life.

Hate to say this, but it seems from the seesawing polls that roughly half of Americans have ceased to be intelligent. This should not be too big a surprise after allowing the Left to turn public education and media into socialist indoctrination for decades.

Randy – Good point. However there are rich fundamentist moslems in Saudi who’s agenda is to spread the Wahabist brand of the moslem religion around the world. They may have some desire to gain a foothold in the minority community in the US. I think Obama was probably helped more by wealthy socialist in the US and figured out when he was young how to scam the liberals national gulit complex over slavery.

Old Joe McCarthy did his best to warn the country. The commie termites have a long pedigree. After the House Un-American hearings the termites simply went completely underground and then continued to eat away at our institutions and constitution.
The last election saw one of their drones/ puppets elected to oversee our stick built house. As with termites in a wood house, there is a point of no return then you must bulldoze and rebuild. This next election will ONLY SLOW that decay not to stop it. Americans have been corrupted and lulled into this dilemma.

I would say that this is a case of a long-term investment in a broad based goal which has been overtaken by events and the unpredictability of human nature. Recall how colonists raised cadres of indigenous elite to oversee their colonial projects, only to see these same elites at the forefront of revolution against them. Or the backfiring of KGB and CIA efforts to infiltrate and control governments through operatives carefully selected in the formative years.

The Saudis’ funding of worldwide Wahhabism was destined from the beginning to blow back on them, because Islam is the most violent, unpredictable and irrational form of government in the world.
Islam, when it is not at war with infidels, is at war with itself, and always follows the strong horse. The Saudi mistakes were believing that they would always be the strong horse, and believing the word of a Black American convert that Barack Obame was a strong, intelligent man worthy of their investment.

Well now arrogant Commies are trying to use islam to their advantage. needless to say they won’t be able to control the genie they are so eagerly letting out of the bottle just to help them to subjugate America. They (and unfortunately, we too) will be faced with “unintended consequences” big time. It can be seen on a small scale with all this Libya fiasco.


I don’t know, Lizzie. It seems to me that America has had a very clear energy policy for decades: develop as little as possible at home and reinforce dependency on foreign sources of oil.
I think there have been sinister hands on our energy policy for decades, long before Obama came along, seeking to weaken the US and make us vulnerable to our sworn enemies.

For a good look at the background behind today’s headlines, read “Witness” by Whittaker Chambers. It’s a chilling description of the communist infiltrators in our government since the 1930s and how they were on hand for the important foreign and domestic policy decisions of past decades that shape our nation today.

    Point of inquiry: the Naturalization Act of 1790 refers to the right of citizenship did “not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States”. How is this possible? For a point of reference go to http://www.teapartynation.com/forum/topics/is-ted-cruz-eligible?id=3355873%3ATopic%3A3036841&page=32#comments and reads Judson’s opening comments.

    I have responded to this issue as follows: “Well, I actually have tried to listen to it several times, but it’s hard to take Mark serious when he starts off by calling Sen Cruz a “naturalized American citizen”. But you have to remember, 1790 was during the time when there were “original” US citizens, whose extended families lived outside of the original 13 American states, Canada being one, who also became US citizens without ever having actually resided in one of these states. It was to these US citizens the Naturalization Act of 1790 was referring to.”

    Do you concur?

    The language you cite was not original to the US constitution but was borrowed from much older British law which put a coral around the rules of natural law, defining its limits. It’s limit was exceeded when a subject was born and raised abroad as a quasi-foreigner, and then had a child who followed the same pattern. His child was truly not British but was a foreigner born of a semi-foreigner who was born of a British subject who emigrated abroad.

    btw, I don’t see why a Canadian-born and raised child of an American would be considered to be an American until they took up residence in the US during the first generation. Also, I don’t know how that would have ever even occurred unless the wife was Canadian, meaning British, and moved back to Canada following a divorce.

      I have the feeling Sen Cruz is going to use this Naturalization Act of 1790 language to build his case that he is an Art. II, §I, Cl. 5 natural born Citizen
