Vernon Jarrett Connection to Khalid Al-Mansour to Obama and Harvard: Black Power Movement – Middle Eastern Money

Valerie Jarrett’s deceased father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, wrote a column in 1979 for The Evening Independent. Jarrett tells of Donald Warden, aka Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour an attorney, “urging” “the rich Arab kingdoms to cultivate stronger ties to America’s blacks by supporting black buinesses and black colleges and giving financial help to disadvantaged students.” Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour is the same person Percy Sutton (now deceased) told a NYC radio show host, who asked him (Sutton) to write a letter of recommendation for Barack Obama for entrance into Harvard and specifically to peg Obama for the president of the Harvard Law Review. The information from Percy Sutton is not new, but when you pair his tying Khalid Al-Mansour to Obama and add to that Vernon Jarrett’s 1979 column, connecting Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour to Arab money flowing to, perhaps, the Black Power movement or far worse, the dominance of Islam, also known as “jihad.”

Khalid al-Mansour aka Don Warden


Daily Interlake’s Frank Miele, September 22, 2012 publishes an image of the Evening Independent Jarrett article. Click on it to enlarge. In the meantime, here is a snippet from the original article (page 14):

VERNON JARRETT: In September, Al-Mansour said, he presented a proposed special aid program to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz when he visited OPEC headquarters in Vienna. Al-Mansour urged the establishment of a fund that would proovide $20-million per year for 10 blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, Asians and native Americans…

I also spoke with a representative of the information center for the League of Arab Nations in Chicago concerning rumors of “heavy Arab contributions and investments” in black Communities in the wake of Andrew Young’s resignation as United Nations ambassador this summer.

“It is quite possible,” an Arab spokesman said. “However, I don’t think any money wil be given to individuals.” But he said he also had heard that Moamma Khadafy, the leader of Libya, is planning to support black organizations “or institutions.” The spokesman did not name any individuals or institutions.

GulagBound and New Zeal:

Percy Sutton, the New York politician who made this startling claim, was part of a clique of Harlem activist/politicians including Rep. Charlie RangelDavid DinkinsBasil Paterson and Denny Farrell, who were closely connected toDemocratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA.

Mr. Sutton was also a mentor to current US Attorney General Eric Holder.

NewsMax September 2008:

New evidence has emerged that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was closely associated as early as age 25 to a key adviser to a Saudi billionaire who had mentored the founding members of the Black Panthers.

Percy Sutton, the former borough president of Manhattan, off-handedly revealed the unusual circumstances about his first encounter with the young Obama.

“I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,” Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter.

“The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas,” Sutton said. “He is the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men. He told me about Obama.”

In the NewsMax article, Sutton says he did write the letter on behalf of Barack Obama.

From my previous article on Sutton and Khalid Al-Mansour aka Don Warden, December 2009:

Al-Mansour has direct ties to the Saudi royal family. He is an adviser to Prince Alwaleed, an enormously wealthy man – at one time, and perhaps still, one of the 14 wealthiest men on the planet. Alwaleed is the man who offered New York City $10 million to help rebuild downtown Manhattan, then ciritcized the U.S. saying we had contributed to the 9-11 attacks. Then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani refused to take his money.

All worked out well for Alwaleed though, as Fox News allowed him to own 10 percent of News Corp, the parent company of Fox News, which perhaps explains the consistently bizarre Fox News presidential polls.

It’s is imperative that we continue to try to reveal how Obama got into Harvard. It wasn’t his grades, we know that because he won’t release them. Have you found a single thing the Narcissist-in-Chief will not brag about if it furthers his legacy? No, there isn’t a single thing.

Now we know that communist Vernon Jarrett, the father-in-law of Barack Obama’s closest Senior Aide, Valerie Jarrett (also known as the “other half of Barack’s brain), tied Khalid Al-Mansour to Middle Eastern money for American Blacks and minorities, and that Al-Mansour asked Percy Sutton for his assistance in getting Obama into Harvard.

Sutton was a very influential Black man, a civil rights leader, an attorney schooled at Columbia Law and Brooklyn Law, who represented Malcolm X. Sutton was the founder of Inner City Broadcasting, and a former Manhattan Borough President. He held that position from 1966 to 1977 – the record for the longest tenure.  He was an Eagle Scout, a stunt pilot, and an intelligence officer with the Tuskegee Airmen and served in the Italian and Mediterranean theaters. Keep this in mind when you hear that Percy Sutton was a doddering old fool.

    Percy Sutton was anything but a doddering fool.

    He was a major political power player during his tenure as Manhattan Borough President. During his time of influence he lead a major black political cabal for many black politicians that would follow. Manhattan was the hub of political influence for the City.

    Much of what he accomplished paved the way for many of the black and minority politicians that were in office or would follow. Dinkins, Rangel, Adam Clayton Powell to name just a few. Many of them were co-owners and investors of a major media conglomerate which owned a major share of some of the biggest television and radio stations in NYC. They held major investments in real estate all around NYC and in particular Manhattan and several up in Harlem, to include The Apollo Theater. Which obtained major landmark status through their influence after major renovations [several through grants].

    Politically I am and always have been a polar opposite of this group, but one thing is for sure. One could question the abilities of many that ran in that circle, but Percy Sutton wouldn’t be one of them.

    • Geo, that’s the way I see it too. Democrats threw him under the bus, denigrated his intelligence and his roll in the Civil Rights movement, but no surprise, Democrats have never supported Civil Right. Remember the New Black Panther Party Voter Intimidation case, where Civil Rights Icon Bartle Bull was there acting as a poll minder? They refused to take his testimony.

        Maggie, I was born and raised in NYC, during that period. When I stop and think about these revelations and start connecting the dots . . . it all makes perfect sense.

        There should be no doubt on anyone’s part that Percy Sutton was a major black political player, who had lots of juice to get things done. In some regards he probably carried more influence than the Mayor of the City. These were tumultuous times, back then. The Vietnam War, Civil Rights movement, Black Power Movement, The anti-war movement and some may not realize the influence of a little known [back then] movement called Islam.

        Within the city, up in the Washington Heights section a movement was being developed called the Nation of Islam. Over the period of several years, there were many power struggles that transpired amongst the people involved, many unfolding right within the community of Washington Heights.

        Washington Heights is part of Manhattan, it is some of the most northern parts of Manhattan. This would’ve been the same area that Percy Sutton represented as Manhattan Borough President. A community made up of heavily of minorities, many Hispanics and lots of Blacks. Slowly disappearing from the area would’ve been the Jewish community.

        Amongst this community would have come Malcolm X. Who frequently spoke before crowds both on the streets and in major sized Movie Theaters [that were now closed and non profitable]. These movements would rent them out and promote day long services and speeches to their believers. Elijah Muhammad who lead the Nation of Islam back then who had two upcoming disciples for the movement. Malcolm X and Louis Farrarkhan.

        Eventually, Malcolm broke with both Elijah and Farrarkhan which caused a major rift between them. Malcolm denounced the NOI movement and eventually was assassinated right in Washington Heights at the Audubon Ballroom, just blocks from where the NOI use to hold their rallies. Many believe that Farrarkhan and/or the NOI had a hand in it.

        This is the very area Sutton represented, practiced Law in and cut his teeth in. He certainly would’ve known all of these people by either a result of his political career, his Law practice, some of his associates or his civil rights agenda. It would almost certainly lead to a connection to Khalid al-Mansour.

        Sutton’s influence lasted way past his time in political office also. He was a very prominent Black and influential business leader.

        It all makes perfect sense when you start connecting the dots.
