Malia, Michelle, Barack and
the College Admissions Scandal

American Thinker, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 3/18/2019 5:26:29 AM

What shocked even the old timers in my hometown was that Mayor Hugh Addonizio, the man who gave me my Eagle Scout Award, would accept kickbacks in cash right across his desk. (snip) In an editorial on the scandal, the New York Times singled out Harvard University for its “special admissions preferences and back doors for certain applicants.” This is the same New York Times, however, that published an entirely uncritical article three years prior headlined, “Malia Obama Rebels, Sort of, by Choosing Harvard.” Malia is the fourth member of the Obama family to attend that august university, none

The Won was The One.....and everything he did, does or will do is divinely inspired to the dolts on either coast.

I´ll bet a release of his college records,etc. will be as informative as declassifying the tripe contained in the Mueller witch hunt files.

Affirmative action hurts everyone including the person benefiting from it directly. When affirmative action hires go out into the world after being admitted to college without merit, they bring that affirmative action mentality with them. They can’t measure up and so they will resort to lawsuits when they are fired, claiming that they were fired because they were black. The employer is forced to rehire them and is stuck with him or her. The quality of work goes down. Other employees become resentful. Everybody suffers. Affirmative action was one of the worst things to ever happen to America

Remember the O’s bow to the Saudi prince or whoever he was? Obama got what he wanted and has contributed to the mess Pres. Trump is trying to clean up. What an evil man.

Obama Sr was anti-British, and could not go to college in Britain. A US program sought out African kids with political potential, and funneled them into Harvard.

I don’t get the attraction to the hoity toity Ivy League schools anyway. You can get just as good an education in many of the state universities accross this great country. A technical degree (engineering) or business degree in accounting or finance means you will always be employable.. law degrees no. We have too many lawyers already and they are ruing everything that is good.

A minor incident is still a memorable one involving the Obamas.

A Congresswoman, I believe, noted that the Obamas, especially their daughters, seemed to have sourpuss expressions the majority of the time. She wondered exactly how living in the lap of taxpayer-funded luxury was putting them in a mood.

This, as usual, sent the lefties into orbit because, as usual, it was unblinkingly accurate. The Congresswoman was targeted for the usual destruction with Obamaites denying the charges.

Guess who else was listening? The Obamas themselves. A short time later at the WH Xmas tree ceremony, all four Obamas participated and sported rictus grins so wide that one suspected the makeup people had employed fishhooks and piano wire.

The Obamas aren´t leaders. Never were. They are very calculating, cynical followers.

The attraction to these prestigious colleges and universities has to do with "status" and "elitism" just like owning that expensive car that you really can´t afford. There always seems to be a motive to show off.

Bill Ayers solicited Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour (a.k.a. Donald Warden) to raise money for Obama’s Harvard Law School education. al-Mansour is an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and his cohort, Bobby Seale. At the time al-Mansour associate Percy Sutton was raising money for Obama’s education, al-Mansour was the top financial advisor to mega-billionaire Prince Alwaleed (Alwalid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family.

The youtube video below is Percy Sutton explaining the connecction to Alwaleed and Sutton´s role getting Obama into Harvard:

It has amazed me all the pearl clutching over the two actresses when this sort of thing has gone on for years. And why now? They must have been trying to take attention off the collusion of the FBI, DOJ, and Hillary. And to make the FBI look good.
To me, this new group are being held to a higher bar than old money has been for years. There is something fishy here.

Read the article and #10.

The article ends:

Barack Obama’s back door, however, was unique to him. Before prosecutors send some of the dimmer Hollywood stars to the slammer for their dimness, they might want to ask just how much influence a Saudi billionaire peddled to get Obama into Harvard.

Those who don’t read will not get what this is really about.

To add to #2, what’s the percentage of AA college admissions who drop out because they can’t handle the load and were never good enough to be admitted in the first place? And what about the qualified students who were not admitted in order to fill the diversity quotas?

As far as we know, no one has ever admitted knowing or seeing 0bama while he was supposedly at Columbia, so how did he then hop from there to Harvard? Funds from a Saudi billionaire could certainly be the answer.

Then Harvard holds a place for Malia after she decides to take a year off to travel, go to concerts, drink and do drugs. Would you or I get that special treatment?

Finally, now Harvard has given a place to David “Attention” Hog, who couldn’t get accepted at state schools, simply because he’s a big mouthed anti-gun zealot. It will be interesting to see how long he lasts there, unless he is passed each year because of who he is.

Which apparently happens a lot if Mooch could graduate from Princeton and Harvard. Which professors would dare to not pass the daughter of an American president if the president was a demonrat?

I don´t know if I will live long enough, these things take years before the truth surfaces, but I am sure that Obama got into Harvard because he claimed he was born in Kenya. He wasn´t, and the birth certificate mess up in HI clouded the Right for so long that the real truth became impossible to dig up. You know that his school records will show this but another generation of Aministrators will have to be in place for that to happen. Looking at the William Kennedy Smith trail on Fox reminded me how the press and Kennedy supporters distorted the truth and the victim. But now, almost 30 years later, the truth is up front and in the light.

I have wondered a long time how the spoiled dolts of both the Obama and Clinton families managed to get into such prestigious schools. It had to have been some kind of bribery at work because I seriously doubt that either girl had the mental capacity to manage it themselves. Especially Chelsea, who for all intents and purposes defines spoiled and dumb.

I believe these colleges have always held seats for the wealthy such as foreign students, and the privileged. I see nothing wrong with it as long as the admissions are fair to the mass. All things run on money.
The magic to the ivy league schools is the club you get to join. It carries a long list of notables because they take care of each other; state schools don´t ... so much. Thus access is enjoyed by the few. That´s life.

Somewhat unrelated, but on March 14th Obama´s half brother, Malik Obama, tweeted the following-

"Is Michelle Michael?"

Drudge had it posted trough the weekend. If the answer to that question is "yes", then clearly Malia is not even their child.

I did not realize that the mooch had written a book titled "The Michelle Obama Transgender Guide: The Unofficial White House Guide to Rights and Privilege of Transgender Persons"

The public has long been conned into believing that the Ivy League schools are like being admitted to Hogsworth. Students having one of those names on their resume are assumed by employers to be of superior intelligence and upbringing. A better education is often found in normal schools and in many cases self-taught people possess a superior education because they avoided the circus of frat parties and useless classes offered to make the average student "well-rounded."

The best proof and probably the only proof of the Obamas´ real abilities can be found in Michelle´s Princeton thesis. I don´t know if it can still be found online but it´s one of the most tedious eighth-grade level papers I have ever read and the topic is, you guessed it, a life made tough by suffering racism.

As for Barry´s intellect, he is devoid of that particular characteristic. The sullen sisters will soon be entertaining us when they are let loose upon the world.

Interesting take from above poster-

It isn’t that Barack was born in Hawaii, it is that he possible lied and claimed foreign birth for preferred enrollment and scholarship money’s. Hmm- he is a fraud and a creation of Bill Ayers. Michelle, is Big Mike- and just as fraudulent as Barry.

This whole issue brooks the question, "In an era of FBI overreach, what is the FBI´s legal authority for investigating this? Is there a federal law that states cheating to get into Harvard or Yale or USC is a federal crime?" It sounds like a state issue and a civil, not criminal, one at that.

Influence networking has long been a tradition in these places. The way to stop it is revoke the right to privacy for entrance test scores. Make it a public record. Matter of fact, let´s make this latter rule retroactive.

Finally, return the FBI to investigating real criminal activity against federal laws. The picture of agents barging into a Hollywood star´s home with guns drawn for helping a spoiled child cheat to get into USC is just another example of how reckless, irresponsible, and empty the mission of the FBI has become, especially when there is so much obvious internal corruption on display at the very top of the agency.

The next thing you know the FBI will be investigating NCAA recruiting violations. Oh, wait... that too!!!

Trump offered five million to an Obama charity if he would release his Harvard records. No reply and barely a mention in the criminal press for this outrageous refusal. It was treason on Harvard´s part to participate in one of the greatest frauds in human history. It is time for President Trump to use executive powers and produce these records for public view!!

Is Harvard a tax supported school? As far as I´m concerned, the NCAA should be looking into these false "athlete" admissions practices, not the FBI. Pay-for-admission is not illegal unless it is a state institution. It´s just another added "admissions fee". Big deal. Anyone here have a child denied entry to Harvard as a result? As they say, the rich are different. This illustrates one difference.

NBC News reported Thursday that “several Democratic presidential candidates will skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s policy conference this year after a prominent progressive group called on them to boycott the event.” This has been a rapid descent. In 2017, Kamala Harris said it was “an honor” to speak before AIPAC. But as quickly as the Democrats’ Jew-hatred is being normalized now, it has also been a long time coming. I warned about it over ten years ago.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

Don Blankenship, the former CEO of Massey Energy and GOP candidate for West Virginia’s U.S. Senate seat last year, filed a massive defamation lawsuit against several mainstream media outlets this past Friday. In the lawsuit, Blankenship alleges that these news organizations (among them CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and even Breitbart) knowingly and willfully misreported him as a felon instead of a misdemeanant. Blankenship, a former CEO of Massey Energy, was acquitted on three felonies but convicted of a misdemeanor for conspiring to violate safety regulations, after a deadly 2010 mining disaster.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport. (Snip) the restaurant would have liked to have had a dialogue with it prior to the decision.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Hours after New Zealand announced prohibitions against semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tweeted the U.S. needs to follow the gun ban example. Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

A group of black seminarians is seeking amends for the Princeton Theological Seminary’s founders’ and early faculty’s ties to slavery. The Association of Black Seminarians posted a petition online earlier this month as a response to a report that detailed the seminary’s history with slavery, which was released last year. So far, the group has collected more than 400 signatures on the petition, which asks for $5.3 million annually to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program.(Snip) “Princeton Theological Seminary is uniquely positioned to lead the theological academy in addressing historic, structural, educational

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off. (Videos/Tweets) Clinging to absolutely anything to avoid apologizing for her bogus reporting, Maddow claimed that

The president is outnumbered now in a way that he was not before.” He added, “Second, I don’t think I, and most of my colleagues, will accept a report unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are reportedly asking him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party’s nomination and faces off against President Donald Trump in the general election. (Snip)Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”
