Someone’s Chickens Just Came Home to Roost … Jeri Wright, The Daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Found Guilty of Money Laundering
Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s daughters chickens appear to have come home to roost …
Jeri Wright, the daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former controversial minister, was found guilty on Friday and convicted of money laundering. Jeri Wright was found guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering from a Chicago-based jobs program, ‘We Are Our Brother’s Keepers’, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury. As reported at Breitbart, Prosecutor Timothy Bass said Jeri Wright lied “over and over” and went on a “spending spree” that included traveling to Las Vegas, buying vehicles, and remodeling her basement with cash from the money laundering scheme. The jury took less than 2 hours to return the guilty verdict on all charges. Of course, she said following the verdict that she did nothing wrong and plans to appeal.
There was no comment from Rev. Wright as to whether the white people on the jury were liars.
The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former minister, was convicted by a federal jury Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-based job-training program.
Jeri Wright said she would “definitely” appeal the verdict in U.S. District Court, which found her guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury.
The $1.25 million state grant was for a not-for-profit work and education program called We Are Our Brother’s Keeper, owned by Regina Evans, former police chief of Country Club Hills, and her husband, Ronald Evans Jr. The couple has pleaded guilty to the fraud scheme.
Wright, a close friend of the couple, took as much as $11,000 from checks worth more than $30,000 that were supposed to be for work related to the grant, prosecutors said. About $20,000 was deposited back into accounts controlled by Regina and Ronald Evans.
The grant agreement was supposed to provide bricklaying and electrical pre-apprenticeship training and GED preparation at the Regal Theater, another entity owned by the couple. Little, if any, of the training provided in the grant agreement was ever completed, according to prosecutors.
Some one is Panicking … Barack Obama Holds Conference Call With Black Preachers Including Jeremiah Wright About Getting Out The Black Vote
Define desperation … President Barack Obama feeling he still needs to make an effort to get out the black vote. Hmm, a Reverend Jeremiah Wright sighting.
In 2008 Barack Obama received 95% of the black vote and 13% of the total vote who turned out in droves to vote for the first black president. However, with just 15 days to go before the 2012 Presidential election we learn that Obama is still trying to woo the black vote. Last weekend Barack Obama held a conference call with a collection of black preachers that included his old pastor, Jeremiah Wright to get out the black vote. How desperate must Team Obama be if at this late date they feel they cannot count on what is considered the base of their base?
Has Obama’s Chickens come home to Roost?
As we roll into the final presidential debate, the polls show a very tight race. One thing they don’t show, however, is how race is a factor in the election.
By my estimate, you have to build in a three- to five-point slip from the poll numbers for any black candidate on election day. To overcome the slip, you need to pump up the black vote by equal measure.
And that’s not easy, because brothers and sisters aren’t among the top turnout groups.
In 2008, Barack Obama was able to compensate for the slip and then some. You would have thought it was Nelson Mandela coming out of jail. This time it’s not going to be that easy.
If Obama looks as if he’s going black, he could turn off white people. So he’s largely been lying low on the race issues – visibly pushing for the Latino vote, the gay vote, the women’s vote, but not the black vote.
But last weekend, he held a conference call with a collection of black preachers that included his old pastor, Jeremiah Wright. He wanted to talk to them about getting out the vote.
Has Obama and his reelection team taken the black vote for granted? Obviously Democrats have as with a 95% sure thing vote, what has black America received in return? According to the Daily Caller, Obama campaign denies the call ever took place. I guess they can blame this to on a video tape.
Daily Caller Realeases Devastaing & Shocking Full VIDEO of 2007 Obama Speech Rife with Racism, Dishonesty & Falsehoods … Plays the Race Card and the MSM Never Covered the Full Story
DISGRACEFUL … WILL THE REAL BARACK OBAMA PLEASE STAND UP … WAS THIS THE “HOPE CHANGE” THAT OBAMA WAS TOUTING TO THE NATION?
From The Daily Caller comes the following full VIDEO of an 2007 campaign event where Barack Obama played the race card of paranoia, claimed the federal government was against blacks and acted in a complete dishonest manner. Talk about pandering to the predominant black crowd at Hampton University, check out that accent. This event was covered by the media; however, they used the transcript released by the campaign, not the actual words that were used in the 2007 ad-libbed speech.
- ‘Where’s YOUR dollar?’
- ‘We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs’…
WATCH THE FULL VIDEO HERE.
In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.
“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”
The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.
As Obama shamefully panders to a black audience in a dialect that is supposed to be Southern or black or whatever, uses the race card and compares Hurricane Katrina New Orleans to 9-11. So this is the same individual who said there are no red states, no blue states, only the United states and he would be a president for all. really?
The National Review has some of the controversial quotes from the Obama speech:
1. Hurricane Katrina “was a powerful metaphor for what’s gone on [in America] for generations.”
2. “It was also there — at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side of Chicago — that I met Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., who took me on another journey and introduced me to a man named Jesus Christ. It was the best education I ever had.”
From ABC News:
But the full version of the speech, posted on The Daily Caller website this evening, shows Obama taking that argument a step further, suggesting the federal government overlooked the needs of residents of New Orleans suffering in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, as opposed to victims of other disasters in other parts of the country.
“Down in New Orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later,” Obama says, “there’s a law, federal law — when you get reconstruction money from the federal government — called the Stafford Act. And basically it says, when you get federal money, you’ve got to give a 10 percent match. The local government’s got to come up with 10 percent. Every 10 dollars the federal government comes up with, local government’s got to give a dollar.
“Now here’s the thing, when 9/11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford Act — said, ‘This is too serious a problem. We can’t expect New York City to rebuild on its own. Forget that dollar you got to put in. Well, here’s 10 dollars.’ And that was the right thing to do. When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said, ‘Look at this devastation. We don’t expect you to come up with y’own money, here. Here’s the money to rebuild. We’re not going to wait for you to scratch it together — because you’re part of the American family.’ … What’s happening down in New Orleans? Where’s your dollar? Where’s your Stafford Act money? Makes no sense. Tells me that somehow, the people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much.”
Carlson told Fox Tuesday night the clips were evidence the then-candidate was “whipping up race hatred and fear. Period.”
The clips, which were hyped online throughout the day by Fox News and conservative blogger Matt Drudge, were billed as something the “left wing press has been hiding since 2007.”
“That is racial rhetoric designed to make people fearful,” Carlson told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “This is the opposite of what a uniter does, this is what a demagoguer does, and it’s wrong.”
More From Barack Obama’s Pastor for 20 Years Jeremiah Wright: America‘s Elite Colleges Infect Black People’s Brains With ‘White Racist DNA’
More racist rhetoric from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor for 20 years.
Rev. Wright is at it again with his racist lunacy. Because nothing says a Sunday church sermon like, accusing America‘s most prestigious academic institutions of infecting black people’s brains with “white racist DNA.” As opposed to investing black people’s brains with Jeremiah Wright racist sermons. Hmm, didn’t Morgan Freeman just call Obama the first mixed-race president and didn’t he go to the elite college called Harvard?
It wasn’t your typical Sunday sermon, but then again, Jeremiah Wright isn’t exactly your typical reverend.
Speaking just miles from the White House at the 100th anniversary of Washington, D.C.’s Florida Avenue Baptist Church on Sunday,Rev. W right accused some of America‘s most prestigious academic institutions of infecting black people’s brains with “white racist DNA,” POLITICO reports.
He started by using the Book of Isaiah and its message of the value of foundational stones as a metaphor, imploring parishioners to teach their children the real African-American history and not the one taught by “our enemies” who “distorts our history, disses our history.” He then reportedly rattled off a list of some of the most important black figures in all of history, including Nat Turner, Emmett Till, Rosa Parks, Paul Robeson, Zora Neale Hurston and others and said their stories must be passed on.
Obama tries to distance himself from Rev. Wright in 2008 as Senator Obama … “he heard for the first time, he had never heard himself personally from the pews”. Now that we know Obama lies to suit his purpose, you make the call.
WOW, and no where will you hear the liberal, Democrat MSM corrupt complex report this story and question Barack Obama as to how he possibly could have spent 20 years in this loon’s church and never once heard anything like this from the pews.
Wright went on to blast some of the country’s top universities for turning black people into “sheep dogs” and “biscuits” – what he calls African-Americans raised in white America. He also warned that attending the schools causes black people to get “that alien DNA all up inside their brain.”
He continued: “There’s white racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life.”
Imagine, just imagine if a “white” pastor, past present or future of a “white” President made such statements referencing blacks? The silence from the MSM is deafening.
Team Reelect Obama 2012 might be offering Rev. Wright $1,500,000 to shut up this time around.
Not-So Ringing Endorsement … Rev. Jeremiah Wright Says Barack Obama Has Done Nothing For Black Community … He Would Be Correct
Hell hath no fury like a
woman Rev. Jeremiah Wright scorned …
Remember that guy who Barack Obama sat in the pews for 20 years while he performed sermon rants? He’s back. Ed Klein, the author of ‘The Amateur’ was interviewed on the Sean Hannity radio show and stated the following regarding Barack Obama’s former pastor and mentor Jeremiah Wright … Barack Obama has done nothing for the black community. Yet another ringing endorsement from Rev. Wright was when he said that Obama was selected. The audio can be heard below along with Rev. Wright’s comments.
Obama Has Done Nothing For Black Community
Reverend Wright is actually correct when he says, Barack Obama has done nothing for the black community. If blacks honestly answered if they were better off today than they were 4 years ago, they could not answer in the affirmative. The first black President has the highest black unemployment rate in 27 years. Also, exactly how does the pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage sit with black America? Not only is Obama the first black President, he is the first Gay President as well. Black America is outraged and Obama is now trying to do damage control with black pastors. So much so that now you have pastors bending over backwards and embarrassing themselves and contorting their religious beliefs much as Democrats in the House and Senate did to vote for Obamacare.
On another note with regards to Ed Klein’s interview, we are reminded by the Gateway Pundit the other eye opening comments …
Ed Klein also said Jeremiah Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having to renounce his “Islamic background.” Klein also has this on tape.
No wonder Obama minions tried to bride Rev. Wright with $150,000 to keep quiet. In 2012 that amount probably has been raised to $1,500,000.
Team Obama Offered Rev. Wright a $150,000 Bribe to Shut Up & Go Away in 2008 After Sermon Videos Surfaced
It would appear that Barack Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost … Where was the MSM covering this story?
According to the New York Post, in 2008 the Obama campaign offered the Reverend Jeremiah Wright $150,000 to shut up and go away after videos surfaced of Wright ranting “God damn America” from the pulpit. The very pulpit of the church that Barack Hussein Obama attended for 20 years. Let us not forget when pastor Wright states, “all white people are liars”. It would seem that Obama’s campaign had to distance themselves at all cost and get away from Rev. Wright and his inflammatory words. At all cost, Obama’s minions could not let the truth come out about Barack Oabma’s past and affiliations.
When sermons of Obama’s Chicago pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced during the Iowa primaries, it threatened to derail Obama’s campaign. ABC aired one where Wright screamed, “Goddamn America!” Edward Klein interviewed Wright, who told him Obama’s team tried to buy his silence.
‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”
“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.
“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”
“He offered you money?”
“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”
“How much money did he offer you?”
“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.
“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”
“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place.
Obviously the Rev. Wright did not take it, so the in the tank media for Obama made a conscious effort never to press candidate Obama on his association with Wright and the fact that Obama spent 20 years in the pews and never heard such comments.Instead, Obama threw Wright under the bus.
As stated by Legal Insurrection, the Washington Post was so quick to write on the bogus Mitt Romney’s bullying BS story. But what else would we expect from a bias, liberal MSM who at all cost will do anything for an Obama reelection?
The Washington Post, all too happy to cover in detail the now-discredited story about Romney’s supposed bully incident, has yet to report on the story. Perhaps they’re still busy re-editing their myriad Romney hit pieces.
UPDATE I: Daily Commentary – Monday, May 14, 2012 – Tabloid Gossip About Michelle Obama, Oprah … Did Obama Campaign Try and Pay Off Rev. Wright, and More…
More Comments from Barack Obama’s 20 Year Pastor Rev. Wright: “White Supremacy” Drives “World Policy,” Calls Thomas Jefferson A “Pedophile”, US Military, “fighting for peace is like raping for virginity” ……
More from President Barack Obama’s pastor for 20 years … Americans should not really be questioning whether Obama is a Muslim or not, they, including the MSM should be questioning Obama and his 20 years listing to the craziness of Rev. Wright. Once again the Rev. Wright goes on a crazed, racist and offensive rant.

I like those at Weasel Zippers find it hard to believe that in 20 years of sitting in the pews and listening to the sermons of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama never once heard any of these racist, crazy rants.
From The Blaze:
•Rev. Jeremiah Wright delivered three fiery sermons about faith, race and politics at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia
•Wright said Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas worships “some other God” outside of “Allah and Yahweh” (who are the “same” he says)
•Obama’s former pastor called Thomas Jefferson “a pedophile”
•He sees “white supremacy” driving “world policy”
•Wright condemned the U.S. military, saying, “fighting for peace is like raping for virginity”
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright became a household name during the 2008 presidential campaign. The fiery preacher, who was President Barack Obama’s pastor for two decades, has since retired from his position at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois. However, he’s still an active figure in geopolitical and faith movements, as his bizarre commentaries often offend detractors and inspire intense debate.
