William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn: Obama … With Friends like this, who Needs Political Material for TV Ads


Since the beginning of the political primaries, the media has all but refused to cover Obama’s past or his close relationships. The liberal main stream media just wanted to keep trumpeting the talking points that Obama was the candidate of change. Change, change, change. No substance, no record, no nothing, just change.


I am the candidate of change … forget my past and lack of judgement. Who doesn’t have domestic terrorists, criminals and racists as friends and confidants? Vote for me … Vote for Change.

Thanks to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the media has been forced into covering Obama’s past and his associations. The media has been forced to cover some of the stories. However, now the media has changed their plan of action. Now they want to tell us that its no big deal who Obama associated with and that they are not character flaws, but mere insignificant occurrences. They actually thing “We the People” are that stupid. 

In an article in the WSJ, Elizabeth Wurtzel tries to tell us that Obama’s Bernardine_Dohrn_weatherundergroundassociation with Bernardine Dohrn  and Bill Ayers is simply fine.

Apparently, back when he was running for state senate, Barack Obama had fund-raising events at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, and there’s been some press about the senator’s friendship with this controversial Weathercouple. Many reporters are well aware, even though Mr. Obama has described his connection to Ayers and Dohrn as “flimsy,” that the senator’s relationship with his radical Hyde Park neighbors is actually quite warm, even close.

Its all just no big deal. In fact, it is a big deal as stated by Protein Wisdom. It gets even worse as the media refuses to cover a story that they know much more of. How pathetic has our media become where they squelch stories that do not fit their liberal agenda.

Bill Ayers_Weather-Underground

Bill Ayers – Weather Underground

As previously noted, Obama has been less than honest about his relationship with unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers.  But Wurtzel is suggesting that reporters know even more than they are reporting.

Flopping Aces reminds us of some other character issue associations that Obama has no issue with in the past as well.

So we should all just forget about Obama’s very bad judgement in befriending the likes of Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, Mr. Wright, and the homophobe Rev. James T. Meeks.

Not likely. Nor should it be when picking the next President of the United States.

Is it any wonder why John McCain has forged ahead of Barack Obama in the Daily Gallup Poll, 48%–42%. Think the Reverend Wright controversy has not taken its toll on Obama’s numbers? After the pasting that Obama took in Pennsylvania, he can hardly afford another loss like that in Indiana. Ever wonder why after 20 years Obama finally said something about Wright and tried to completely distance himself? Its all politics.

      Having had my phone tapped and my life threatened by SDS in the day, I know what these people are. If you want to know what Obama is, go to the web site of the Trinity United Church of Christ and read. Especially the “Black Value System”. Obama does not consider himself to be an American at all but instead an African. He does not salute the flag and his wife has never been proud to be an American because they do not consider themselves to be American in the least part. They only see America as a vehicle to support Africans. Others need not apply!

      The last time we saw anything like PBS’ Bill Moyers’ interview of the racist Rev Wright last Friday it started an impeachment proceeding. That “interview” is the Second-Most famous act of fellatio in national political history.

      Rumor has it that Mr. Moyers’ kneepads (same size as Monica’s!) will be auctioned off for the NAACP legal defense fund.

      The National Crime Lab is poised to announce test results for DNA residue on Moyers’ blue blazer.

      The establishment media is in sweaty, frantic overdrive endeavoring to convince everyone that what’s been happening recently is an absolutely legitimate event, whereby Obama denounced and disowned Rev Wright.

      But it was not, is not, credible and 0bama did not denounce and disown Wright – merely some of his more hilarious and vile statements.

      Mark My Words: Should Obama become President, Jeremiah Wright will be at the inaugeration; he will be in our White House; he will be associated with President Obama.

      How on God’s green earth did Obama happen…as John posted they do not consider themselves to be American…so why do you live here… go to Africa, but don’t use our people and our country to support your cause…your not here for us…that is more than obvious…Democrats, you did it again….your choices always suck!!!! We are looking for a President to guide and represent the United State of America…people only heard the word change but didn’t have a clue as to how it was going to happen…..

      Inquiring minds want to know the ties that bind Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama to the leader of the Nation of Islam.


      Within Islamic tradition, the concept of Taqiyya (?????? – ‘fear, guard against’)[1] refers to a controversial dispensation allowing believers to conceal their faith when under threat, persecution or compulsion.[2]

      The word “al-Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of imminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury.” A one-word translation would be “Dissimulation.”http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Taqqiyah

      Dissimulation is a form of deception in which one conceals the truth. It differs from simulation, in which one exhibits false information. Dissimulation commonly takes the form of concealing one’s ability in order to gain the element of surprise over an opponent.


      Louis Farrakhan backs Obama for president at Nation of Islam convention in Chicago
      February 25, 2008

      Speaking to thousands of members of the Nation of Islam at their annual convention Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan praised presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama as the only hope for healing the nation’s racial divisions.


      Farrakhan Praises Obama as ‘Hope of Entire World’
      by Associated Press
      Monday, February 25, 2008

      CHICAGO — In his first major public address since a cancer crisis, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said that presidential candidate Barack Obama is the “hope of the entire world” that the U.S. will change for the better. The 74-year-old Farrakhan, former leader of the black Muslim group, never endorsed Obama outright, but spent much of his nearly two-hour speech Sunday to an estimated crowd of 20,000 people praising the Illinois senator.

      “This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better,” he said. “This young man is capturing audiences of black and brown and red and yellow. If you look at Barack Obama’s audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed.”


      Wright’s words raise doubts on Obama, not black church
      May 1, 2008

      WASHINGTON — Here’s where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright went wrong. Barack Obama’s former pastor said in a raucous news conference at the National Press Club this week that the tempest surrounding a few of his more contentious sound bites was an attack on the black church …

      Wright can no longer complain he has been taken out of context. He provided his own context, such as when he declared Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan one of the most important voices of the 20th and 21st centuries. But Farrakhan has espoused too many racist, anti-Semitic views over the years to be considered important in the healing and reconciling Obama says he wants.

      He likes to point fingers, not just to the right but also to the left..Michelle and Obama cannot follow in the hallow..to honor as holy…considered sacred….venerate..to hallow a battlefield…I seriously doubt if he will win anymore primaries…it’s time to put and end to him…..go to St Thomas lay in your lawn chair and get over it…..

      Michelle Obama would never be able to fill the shoes of Laura Bush…not even close!!!

    10. Lisa in Maryland on May 3rd, 2008 1:33 pm

      Really People, we live in the 20th century. There should be no division of Black / White or Male / Female and just because you know someone with different ideals and values doesn’t mean you share the same. I don’t always agree with everything my pastor says.

      Hillary is a flat out liar. It’s been proven and we all know it. McCain is too damn old for the job. Have you seen how the presidency ages people? He will probably not live long enough to finish his duty and we will be stuck with whom ever he chooses to finish the job.
      SM: There is a difference between not agreeing with a position a pastor may have and your pastor being an American hating racist. Big difference. The fact that this guy was preaching hate in God’s house is disgusting enough. Wright is an arms dealer looking to keep black and white people at each others throats and benefiting in the process.

      Obama cannot escape Wright for one reason. There is no way that Obama can preach a message of hope and unity while is pastor, his friend and his spiritual adviser was a hater and a nut. That makes Obama a fraud. Nothing more.

      Hillary may be a liar, I am not questioning that. However, so is Obama. Add hypocrite to the list as well.


    11. dennisintn on May 3rd, 2008 2:29 pm

      i’ll totally agree with the right reverend wright on one single thing. obama is just another politician. obama will say anything to win the election. it’s the nature of the beast.

      Did Jeremiah Wright do a little more than just “dabble” with Islam?


      Audacity of Barack Obama and Rev. Wright
      by Michael Gaynor
      March 18, 2008 01:00 PM EST

      In Senator Obama’s first book, titled Dreams of My Father and published in 1995 (after he had been elected president of the Harvard Law Review but before he had been elected to public office), Senator Obama wrote at length about Rev. Wright and his moving “Audacity of Hope” speech.

      In Dreams, Senator Obama explained how he met Rev. Wright, whom he mentioned had been “dabbling with liquor, Islam, and black nationalism in the sixties.”

      He acknowledged that Rev. Wright immediately had given him fair warning that he was controversial, by quoting Rev. Wright as having said: “Some of my fellow clergy don’t appreciate what we’re about. They feel like we’re too radical. Others, we aren’t radical enough. Too emotional. Not emotional enough.”

      He also acknowledged that Rev. Wright let him know at their first meeting that he looked unfavorably on America and expected to continue to do so, by stating, “Life’s not safe for a black man in this country, Barack. Never has been. Probably never will be.”

      Senator Obama left with one of Rev. Wright’s “Black Value System” brochures.

      When Senator Barack listened to Rev. Wright’s “Audacity of Hope” sermon, September 11, 2001 was years away, but, Senator Obama admitted in Dreams, Rev. Wright castigated America.

      More …

    13. Tamikosmom on May 3rd, 2008 5:35 pm

      Jeremiah Wright was protected by Nation of Islam bodyguards at his present National Press Club appearance.

      IMO … Jeremiah Wright’s relationship with the racist, anti-American leader of the Nation of Islam is very suspect and … Barack Obama’s twenty year relationship with the racist, anti-American Jeremiah Wright is very suspect.

      Could Rev. Spell Doom for Obama?
      by Dana Milbank
      April 28, 2008

      Should it become necessary in the months from now to identify the moment that doomed Obama’s presidential aspirations, attention is likely to focus on the hour between nine and ten this morning at the National Press Club. It was then that Wright, Obama’s longtime pastor, reignited a controversy about race from which Obama had only recently recovered – and added lighter fuel.

      Speaking before an audience that included Marion Barry, Cornel West, Malik Zulu Shabazz of the New Black Panther Party and Nation of Islam official Jamil Muhammad, Wright praised Louis Farrakhan, defended the view that Zionism is racism, accused the United States of terrorism, repeated his view that the government created the AIDS virus to cause the genocide of racial minorities, stood by other past remarks (“God damn America”) and held himself out as a spokesman for the black church in America.

      In front of 30 television cameras, Wright’s audience cheered him on as the minister mocked the media and, at one point, did a little victory dance on the podium. It seemed as if Wright, jokingly offering himself as Obama’s vice president, was actually trying to doom Obama; a member of the head table, American Urban Radio’s April Ryan, confirmed that Wright’s security was provided by bodyguards from Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.

      The critical aspect of the Obama/Wright situation is precisely that from the onset, Obama has proposed that he is the candidate of hope, the candidate for a united USA, the post racism candidate that could bring together rich, poor, blacks, whites, people of all races and creeds. His association with Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan cast a cloud of doubt about his campaign platform, because if he’s so pro unification of America, then he cannot maintain such closeness with anti-American, separatist radicals.

      Obama has also admitted that he lacks experience for the job and has asserted that his inexperience will be compensated by his decision-making capacity. His link to Wright and the others, his San Francisco comments, his wife’s comment about not being proud of America, are all indicative that he lacks judgement and that his appeal to voters is a deceitful pitch and opportunistic tactic. As BOR implies, mendacious!!!

      RIGHT ON POINT !! Exxxxacccctly THE point, Lisa.

      Excellent Post.

      I cannot say it enough to anyone who will listen to me about the upcoming Presidential election:

      Barrack Hussien Obama is a liar and a FRAUD. Look behind the smoke screen people, study the facts and do some simple research. When one begins to “connect the dots”, the picture instantly becomes frighteningly clear.

      Mendacious INDEED! I urge every Independent voter whose votes he is counting on to look at all three candidates and chose the best of the worst! Barrack Hussien Obama and HRC are NOT the answer in ’08. Whether you agree with his entire platform or not- John McCain is the man to do the job. Vote wisely, America and PLEASE !! DON’T DRINK the Kool-Aide of “Hope and Change”. It’s lethal. Barrack & Michelle Obama if elected to office will do much more harm than good to this nation.

      ** McCain ’08 ***

      Obama has had way too many established close relationships with Anti-American separatist radicals and Anti-White Extremists.

      Good Morning, Monkeys….

      Here is our thought for today~~~

      There’s less than eight months until the election that will decide the next President of the United States.

      The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the Democrats or the Republicans. To show our solidarity as
      Americans, let’s all get together and show each other our support for the candidate of our choice. It’s time that we all came together,
      Democrats and Republicans alike.

      If you support the policies and character of John McCain, please drive with your headlights on during the day.

      If you support Obama or Hillary, please drive with your headlights off at night.

      Thank you very much.

      **** McCain 08 ****

      In our history there have been several times we as a country ignored our own constitution. Often too, courts (I fear often, part of secret organization agreements) have ruled against our constitution in great favor of giving to blacks what others did not and do not get.

      If Obama becomes President, and merely coming this close is in itself mighty scarey, through his manipulation of judges, appointments of the same, vetos and time progression supported almost totally by a one race one ideals racist movement, we can end up with his own amendments. Which will be ignored and resisted this time by the ‘people’. There goes the neighborhood.

      Best structure we ever had and the difference between us and a south american feasco, has been we tried to closely go by our document. Except a few matters related to war, and matters coddling to blacks.

      I do not mean to express I hate all black people, not at all. I do hate the racist movement I see clearly developing and I, as it seems many are, am sickened permanently with blacks recieving favor or conditions others do not get equally. There are many many many many…for pitty and hate in return.

      There’s no question the Barack Obama is just as much of a phony and liar and politician as Hillary. What makes Obama the most dangerous of the dangerous is his associations and apparent inability to decipher character. Remember, this is the guy that suggests that he can sit down and talk peace with terrorist nations. How dangerous will that be when he sits in a pew for 20 years along with personal associations with Rev. Wright and he has trouble deciphering that Wright is a racist and hates Whites and the USA government?

      Personally, I believe that Obama believes the things that Wright preaches, his wife certainly appears to. When Obama finally disowned Wright, it wasn’t because Wright is a racists or hates America but rather because Wright dared to dis the messiah himself!

      First Obama claims that over a TWENTY YEAR period, he never heard a single anti-American racist sermon from Jeremiah Wright … never noticed the anti-American racist literature in the church’s lobby … never agreed to the ‘Black Values System’ that all the church members swore to … never subscribed to the Marxist ‘Black Separation Theology’ espoused on the church’s website … never knew anti-American racist Louis Farrakhan, who the church awarded a life time achievement award to … and, never knew unrepentant terrorist William Ayers, when Obama launched his campaign from Ayer’s living room, sat on a board together, and whose wives worked at the same law firm
      . Obama also worked with Acorn, who has been caught in massive voter fraud, in behalf of Obama. Obama obviously shares an anti-American racist, and criminal philosophy with some very unsavory people, continues to lie about it, and does not have the character, or integrity to be President of the United States of America !!!
