Skip to comments.Stop Calling Him 'Dr.': The Academic Fraud of Sebastian Gorka, Trumpís Terrorism 'Expert'
Posted on 02/26/2019 10:31:00 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Early on a mustache-twirling villain emerged as the face of the Trump White House. With the mannerisms of a pompous English B-movie baddy, Sebastian Gorka is to Donald Trump what the Sheriff of Nottingham was to King John. The malevolent sidekick.
Dr. Gorka styles himself as the crusading academic. A Kissinger for our troubled times. The brilliant scholar of terrorism who has taught at elite colleges and published groundbreaking research. He often reminds the imbeciles of the press that as a man of great learning only he truly comprehends the threat of Muslims.
But experts have listened to Gorkas advocacy of the Muslim ban, attacks on the media and sterling defence of Trumps well-oiled administration and wondered how could such a well trained academic make such baseless and ignorant claims about topics he purports to be an expert on? In March he became embroiled in a remarkable spat with a Republican National Security consultant, Michael S. Smith. Gorka is flailing widely tilting at enemies real and imagined.
I started digging and it didnt take long to find out that Gorka is a fraud a charlatan of the most brazen hue a snake-oil salesman whose supposed Ph.D dissertation would have never passed muster in America or Britain and to put the cherry on the cake was approved by an fraudulent panel of examiners. The polar opposite of Lt. Gen H.R. McMasters celebrated dissertation awarded by UNC Chapel Hill.
Gorka is Hungarian-English. He gained an American passport in 2012. His nationalist parents fled to London from Budapest in 1956. His dissertation Content and End-State-based Alteration in the Practice of Political Violence since the End of the Cold War: the difference between the terrorism of the Cold War and the terrorism of al Qaeda

Even Gorkas attendance poses a mystery. When exactly was he a graduate student at the university? Did he take classes? Did he receive any training in Islam or Islamic studies? His CV notes that he left Hungary in 2004 to work for the U.S. Defense Department in Germany and then in 2008 relocated to the U.S. There is no evidence that he ever returned to live and study in Budapest.
If only the Author was as interested in the Education History of one Barack Obama.
Wow...I wish someone would have investigated Obama with half the rigor of this guy!
John was not King, he was a Prince. Also, he did not give one thought to the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Baron and Count might have, but the Prince did not.
Oh, and Gorka IS a doctor (PhD from Corvinus University).
Hummm...PhD snobbery? I am shocked! More huff and puff in this piece than actual facts.
Haaretz. Consider the source.

Oh the UNC-CH with fake Black Studies no classes classes for black athletes? Yeah a real institution of higher Liberal education without getting any:-)
Sounds like Gorka pissed in the dweeb author’s corn-hole flakes.
Certainly not a top university.
If he satisfied their requirements, he satisfied their requirements!
I’ve seen far far worse Ed.D. & PolySci PhD doctoral dissertations!
“Why We Fight” By Sebastian Gorka
And because of these Reynolds types.
Corvinus is not an institution with a profile—No Shxt dick tracy..
Corvinus University of Budapest - Budapest - Hungary ...
The University Library of Corvinus University of Budapest is an academic library aiming to provide excellent resources and services to support the learning, teaching and research activities at the University. There are four reading rooms, two computer labs, a newspaper reading room and an Economic History Research Library.
Personally, I would reserve the doctor title for, in addition to medicine and dentistry, to at least semi hard sciences like the guys who figure out rocket launches.
It could be worse: the Germans refer to lawyers as Doctor...
If Sharpton can be a Reverend, then Gorka has every right to be a Doctor.
This investigative reporter certainly got his tidy whities in a wad.
Don’t you love this “my PhD(ick)” is bigger than yours BS?
Isn’t Boston College a supposedly top-ranked university? Couldn’t prove it by Alexandria Ocasio-Kotex, now could you?
The author twice refers to Ghorkas parents as nationalists. Does that just mean that his parents supported the Hungarian people against their Soviet overlords in the 1956 Uprising? I can see how a Lefty might find that disturbing.
She didn’t go to BC, she went to BU.
I sure would have liked to see answers to those questions with regard to Obama.
