Barack and Michelle Obama both attended Harvard University, and now one researcher has uncovered the college admissions scandal involving them. In fact, long before we ever heard of celebrities paying bribes to get their kids into Ivy League universities, Barack and Michelle had taken advantage of scamming their way into one of the most prestigious colleges in the land. You don’t want to miss this.
With the recent college admissions scandal breaking in the news, one researcher has revealed how Barack and Michelle Obama scammed their way into Harvard and scammed their way to graduate. In fact, Malia Obama didn’t “merit” her way into Harvard either.
Jack Cashill of the American Thinker did a deep dive into the Obamas college years, and what he finds is causing shockwaves across conservative circles. What he uncovered is that it was only Barack Obama Sr. who really “merited” his way into Harvard and that the other Obamas including Michelle scammed their way in.
“Malia is the fourth member of the Obama family to attend that august university, none of whom, save perhaps for Grandpa Obama, deserved to be there,” says Cashill. “Let’s start with Obama Sr., the only member of the extended family to attend college before the affirmative action/diversity era. Obama arrived at Harvard in the early 1960s with the goal of getting a Ph.D. in economics. According to biographer Sally Jacobs, Obama ‘struggled’ with his studies but managed to get a Masters degree.”
Democrats claim Barack Obama is the smartest guy in the room wherever he goes. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cashill says Barack may be smarter than Michelle, but that’s not saying much.
“Barack was the smarter and better-educated half of the couple,” Cashill says. “That said, had Obama’s father come from Kentucky, not Kenya, and been named O’Hara, not Obama, there would have been no Harvard Law Review, no Harvard, no Columbia for the former president.”
If it wasn’t for the fact his dad was an alumnus of Harvard, and some back door deals, Barack would never have made it into that coveted university. A Northwestern University professor who wrote a letter of reference for Obama reinforces the point, telling Obama biographer David Remnick, “I don’t think [Obama] did too well in college.”
“How such an indifferent student like Barack Obama got into a law school whose applicants’ LSAT scores typically track between 98 to 99 percentile and whose GPAs range between 3.80 and 4.00 is a subject Remnick avoids,” writes Cashill. So Obama’s own biographer refuses to touch his college grades and admits he did poorly in college.
Then, there’s Barack’s alleged benefactor Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, a Saudi billionaire and member of the Muslim Brotherhood who strangely went around asking prominent African-Americans to write letters of recommendation so he could get into Harvard.
“[Percy] Sutton, now in his late 80s and mostly off the public stage, told NY1’s Dominic Carter that he was asked to write a letter of recommendation to Harvard Law School on Obama’s behalf by a man named Khalid al-Mansour of Texas, ‘the principle adviser to one of the world’s richest men’ who was also ‘raising money for [Obama],’” Politico reports.
Of course, during the 2008 campaign, Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt told Politico that “Obama did not know and does not know Khalid al-Mansour.”
“Leftists declared Obama the smartest person to occupy the Oval Office. Yet, we can’t get ANY of his grades. Why wouldn’t a Harvard grad and president of Law Review want Americans to know how he fared?” said Kevin Jackson, an African-American conservative pundit. “Let’s be clear, the Obamas are dumb. I know people find my statement on this fact demeaning. Nevertheless, facts back me up.”
That brings us to Michelle Obama. “Told by counselors that her SAT scores and her grades weren’t good enough for an Ivy League school,” writes Christopher Andersen in Barack and Michelle, “Michelle applied to Princeton and Harvard anyway.”
Sympathetic biographer Liza Mundy writes, “Michelle frequently deplores the modern reliance on test scores, describing herself as a person who did not test well.” She did not write well either. Mundy charitably describes her senior thesis, “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community,” as “dense and turgid.”
The less charitable Christopher Hitchens observed, “To describe [Michelle’s thesis] as hard to read would be a mistake; the thesis cannot be ‘read’ at all, in the strict sense of the verb. This is because it wasn’t written in any known language.”
So, it’s a no-brainer Michelle did not get into Harvard because she had straight A’s and tested off the chart on her SAT and ACT, which is exactly what other students have to do to get into Harvard. Michelle got “special” help and took the place of some student who really “merited” a place at Harvard.
And Malia Obama didn’t have to do a thing to get into Harvard, either. Tucker Carlson exposed the reason why the leftist political elites don’t have to bribe anyone to get their kids into the best universities.
“How did Malia Obama wind up at Harvard? Fox News’ Tucker Carlson recently explored this question in the wake of the college admissions scandal. “How (do) the mediocre children of the politically powerful on both sides take top spots at top schools without even resorting to bribery?” Carlson asked.
“They get it for free,” he said. “They are just awarded them for the achievement of being born.” Rich elitists have always orchestrated to get their children better educations. Conservative elitists just pay for tutors, mentors, or better academic environments, for the most part. However, leftists bludgeon anyone standing in the way of their children’s success.
Long before we heard about the recent college admissions scandal, the Obamas were scamming their way into Harvard. And we all know they were helped along the way while at Harvard. Insiders have reported the professors are aware certain students are to be helped along to graduate, and it sure looks like that’s what happened with Barack and Michelle.
A Harvard education opens doors into some of the most lucrative jobs out there, and so this is no small thing. Barack, Michelle, and Malia took the place of at least three students who had better grades and the higher test scores. Those lives were forever altered so the Obamas could get their Ivy League credentials. So many lives were impacted so the former First Couple could get what they never deserved.
