After Obama released his Certificate of Live Birth, Trump followed up by suggesting that Obama should also release his university transcripts, saying:
I’d like to know how does he get into Harvard, how does he get into Colombia if he isn’t a very good student. If he wants to release it that’s fine, if he doesn’t want to release it that’s fine too. But the word is he wasn’t a very good student.
Trump apparently isn’t shy about questioning Obama’s lack of preparedness for the office of president. During the 2008 campaign the media was unwilling to investigate anything about Obama, while having no qualms about publishing an uncorroberated rumor that McCain was in a romantic liaison with a lobbyist. Whatever the Obama campaign said about Obama was taken as the God-honest truth without being subjected to the least scrutiny. If Obama glossed over information about his background or was less than forthcoming, no one in the mainstream media investigated the matter. And to my dismay, the McCain campaign refused to look into Obama’s background as well. So by the time it was election day, no one knew anything about him.
Obama has been referred to as the “undocumented candidate” because so little was known about him while he was campaigning for president. Obama has also been referred to as the “Mansourian candidate” because Khalid al-Mansour intervened in Obama’s academic life by asking Harvard-connected Percy Sutton to write a letter of support for Obama, who was then a Harvard candidate. Percy Sutton was Malcolm X’s lawyer. At one time Malcolm X was the spokesman for the Nation of Islam.
In case you are unfamiliar with al-Mansour, he has been described as the principal advisor of billionaire and Saudi prince, Al-Waleed bin Talal. According to a post at Joshuapundit
And who is Khalid al-Mansour? He’s a well connected Texas-born lawyer who used to be known as Don Warden back in Berkeley, when he was involved with the Black Panther movement. He originally comes from Texas and is primarily a black separatist, Islamist and anti-Semite, who’s books include titles like “The Destruction of Western Civilization as Seen Through Islam” and “Will the West Rule Forever?”
By the way, the same Joshuapundit article states that Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, was once a member of the Nation of Islam himself. Al-Mansour is currently a member of the Nation of Islam, and there have been rumors that he arranged the financing for Obama’s education.
For more insight into al-Mansour’s character, check out this YouTube video where al-Mansour applauds a black criminal who was guilty of murdering random white people. al-Mansour states that he regards this murderer with the same kind of respect that a white person might have for WWII commander, General Patton.
You may be aware that Obama started college at Occidental College, then transferred to Columbia. You may not be aware that in between attending these two colleges, he traveled to Pakistan with a friend who apparently had family there. You may also be unaware that no one seems to remember Obama’s time at Columbia. Fox News interviewed 400 of his classmates without being able to find someone who remembered him. Obama explains this oddity by saying that he was living “like a monk,” spending all his time at the library. However Obama does say that he was active in campus organizations concerned with civil rights and apartheid, except leaders of these organizations don’t remember him either. Obama himself has not been forthcoming in naming any friends or associates from this period, saying that he’s bad with names.
Yes, I am curious about Obama’s university days. I would like to see records of his academic achievement (grades, SAT and LSAT scores) and copies of any theses he wrote. I would also like to learn who financed his education (hopefully it was not financed by the Nation of Islam, which is one of the rumors circulating). Dozens of media personalities have remarked on Obama’s genius, but I haven’t seen any signs of it. However I’m willing to be convinced. He should release his academic records.
