I´m taking you in
I´m leading you inside out within
Belive in me
Don´t take us where it all began
The political corruption of the American MSM is now the stuff of legends. I would rather be a pimp for under-age, drug addicted girls than be a hack working for the likes of NYT or WaPo or CNN. Like all great corruptions, sooner or later it will collapse as the termites eat themselves from the inside. Either that, or more likely, the whole print industry will just wither away on an already sickly vine as readers and viewers vanish. And vanish they will as more and more of them realise that their so-called (actually, self-called!) free press has not only distorted the news it is supposed to publish without fear or favour but has actually been party to hiding it by refusing steadfastly to investigate it.
Thus, the mass of American voters remain blissfully ignorant of much of the early life of their current president who is seeking re-election this November. Headlines scream at Mitt Romney for not publishing his tax returns but go silent when he displays last year's which show him to have paid considerable taxes but paid even more by way of donations to charity. In the meantime, no-one can, because mostly the MSM have not tried too hard, prise loose the details of Obama's Harvard education which has been kept strictly secret. Only one question arises - why? Well, Thomas Lifson, editor of The American Thinker, offers up one very strong possibility. He draws attention to an extraordinary TV interview in 2008 with an elderly man called Percy Sutton who, in his day, had been a high-level Democrat politician in the borough of Manhattan - it's worth watching. At the time, according to Mr. Lifson, the Obama camp briefed the MSM to the effect that Sutton was a rambling old man whose partial memories could be ignored - and the MSM lickspittles were only too pleased to obey. But Sutton's story is worth listening to.
He tells us that he was first introduced to the young Obama by a man called Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, a black American who had converted to Islam and who had oiled (no pun intended) his way into the position of being an advisor to various Saudi interests. This man had persuaded the Saudis to stump up funds to help various disadavantaged black Americans through college not entirely, or even slightly, for charitable reasons but because the chances were that several of them would rise up in due course to positions of power within the American government. Exactly the same technique was used by the Soviet KGB in recruiting bright youngsters at universities in the expectation that little fish eventually become big fish.
According to Sutton, Obama was one of the little fish helped by Saudi money to attend Harvard. Well, Sutton was indeed an old man when he gave the interview and he might have been muddled but another hack, but a hack with more journalistic honour in his inky fingers than the entire staff of the NYT, a hack who worked for - wait for it - the Daily Inter-Lake newspaper (no, me, neither), by the name of Frank Miele had stumbled upon a syndicated column in the Chicago Tribune in 1979. The columnist had been interviewing a San Francisco lawyer about rumours of "billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions." This lawyer told the columnist that it was no rumour but the absolute truth - and he would have known because his name was Donald Warden and he had helped defend OPEC against an anti-trust suit in the course of which he established close ties to the Saudi royal family. Needless to say, if you have not already guessed, Donald Warden, er, saw the light, converted to Islam and called himself Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.
In Frank Miehle's own words:
Al-Mansour told Jarrett [the columnist doing the interview] 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.
Aha, I hear you cry with but a single voice - Jarrett! Oh yes, the very same family because he is father-in-law to Valerie Jarrett, the woman who sits outside the Oval Office and controls all access to Obama. The woman who gave him his first helping hand up the shit-pole of Chicago politics. There is still no definitive proof that Obama is a sock-puppet for Saudi oil and political interests but suddenly his aversion to Israel which has gone hand in hand with his efforts to smarm the Arabs, and his domestic policy of crushing American coal and oil investment including his adamant refusal to allow a pipe-line from Canada to bring in cheap shale oil/gas begins to be a little more understandable.
