    Default Obama: Anti-Colonial President, Plans for the next term

    http://www.amazon.com/Fool-Me-Twice-.../dp/1936488574

    Well, the author was just on Fox and Friends.

    If I get a chance, I'll read his book. Although he laid out pretty clearly what's in store for us in the second Obama term.

    We can NOT let him be re-elected.

    Default Re: Fool Me Twice: Obama's Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed

    Book had four reviews. All are 5 stars thus far.

    Book Description


    Publication Date: August 7, 2012
    This is the game changing book revealing the blueprint for a second term that President Obama and his progressive backers don't want you to know.

    Months of painstaking research into thousands of documents have enabled investigative journalists and New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott to expose the secret template for Obama's next four years -- the one actually created by Obama's own top advisers and strategists.

    Just as Obama concealed the true plans for his initial term behind rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the Federal deficit, Obama's re-election theme of creating jobs conceals more than it reveals about his real agenda for a second term.

    All the main areas of domestic policy are covered -- jobs, wages, health care, immigration overhaul, electoral "reform," national energy policy. Each of the plans exposed seek to permanently remake America into a government-dominated socialist state.

    Here are just a few samples from dozens upon dozens of specific schemes unveiled herein:


    • Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the Federal government regardless of any Supreme Court decision to overturn Obamacare;

    • The recreation of a 21st century version of FDR's Works Progress Administration (WPA) program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new Federal jobs;

    • Further gutting of the U.S. military in shocking ways, while using the "savings" for a new "green" stimulus program and the founding of a Federal "green" bank to fund so-called environmentally friendly projects;

    • The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat "global warming," fight global poverty, remedy "injustice," bolster the United Nations and step up use of "peacekeeping" deployments;

    • An expansive new amnesty program for illegal aliens linked with a reduction in the capabilities of the U.S. Border Patrol and plans to bring in untold numbers of new immigrants with the removal of caps on H-1B visas and green cards.



    Fool Me Twice is based on exhaustive research into the coming plans and presidential policies as well as the specific second term recommendations of the major "progressive" groups behind Barack Obama and the Democratic leadership - the organizations that help to craft the legislation and set the political and rhetorical agenda for the president and his allies.

    While many have general concerns about Obama's second-term ambitions, Fool Me Twice lays bare the devastating details of a second Obama presidency. If he wins re-election in 2012, the America of equal opportunity for all, Constitutionally-limited government, economic freedom and personal liberty will be but a distant memory.

    By the way... of the four reviews, the one was a Left Wing tirade against the right, no review actually.

    He scored it 5 stars. LOL

    And I of course marked his review helpful, because he was the one that convinced me to buy it.

    See? The Left is good for SOMETHING? (Not much besides sending them to Mars).

    The country Obama wants to be president of, is not the United States. The fact that liberal loons and guilty white people voted this turd in means we have to live with his stink. If the turd pops up again, it may be time to replace the toilet.
    "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

    In a somewhat related vein, a new movie is out....

    http://2016themovie.com/

    Watching a handful of clips, the official trailer etc.

    Funny how BOTH the author of the book and this guy who did the movie (and two books) are neither one born or living in the USA.

    (As far as I have determined. I might be wrong on this).

    The movie guy is Indian. The other guy who was on Hannity lives in the Middle East.

    What Obama Has in Store for Us
    Dinesh D’Souza asks what a 2012 victory would mean. By John Fund


    Archive Latest RSS Send
    Promotional material for Dinesh D’Souza’s 2016: Obama’s America



    Print
    Text


    The latest line of attack on Mitt Romney by Obama supporters is the most breathtaking yet: Romney, we are told, is a stealth candidate.


    Michael Tomasky, who wrote the controversial Newsweek cover story declaring that Romney is a “wimp,” now accuses Romney of a “desire to sneak into the White House all but unexamined by voters.”


    Holy Double Standard! Romney certainly could have handled the release of his tax returns better, and it’s likely he is concealing embarrassing details.

    But Barack Obama, aided and abetted by a subservient media, spent much of his 2008 campaign trying to conceal his radical roots and evading questions about his past. Stanley Kurtz, the author of the new Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities, has demonstrated convincingly that the Obama campaign lied to reporters (including me) about Obama’s involvement with the socialist New Party and his work for the infamous ACORN operation (which subsequently went bankrupt following a 2009 scandal).


    Similarly, scholar Paul Kengor has written a new book on Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s teenage mentor, entitled “The Communist.” Dave Weigel of Slate acknowledges that “Kengor’s bang-on right: Davis was an avowed Communist, and the media of 2008 didn’t care.” But Weigel thinks “Obama never pretended not to know Davis” and notes that Davis appears as the black-power advocate “Frank” in the president’s 1995 book Dreams from My Father. True enough, but Obama was certainly leery of too much scrutiny of Davis: The audio version of Dreams, read by Obama himself, removes all 24 references to “Frank” that appear in the printed text. Why the difference? Perhaps because the audio version wasn’t recorded until 2005, when newly elected U.S. senator Barack Obama was already contemplating a run for the White House.




    Advertisement

    Trying to figure out what makes Barack Obama tick, what influenced his thinking, and where he might take the country in a second term is the purpose of Dinesh D’Souza’s new $2.5 million documentary 2016: Obama’s America, which will premiere in hundreds of theaters on August 10.

    D’Souza, a bestselling author and the president of King’s College in New York, emigrated from India as a boy, and he says he understands something of how Obama’s exotic upbringing in Hawaii and Indonesia might have shaped his view of America. But D’Souza, a conservative, sees America as a land of tolerance and opportunity. He believes Obama “adopted his [anti-colonialist] father’s position that capitalism and free markets are code words for economic plunder. Obama grew to perceive the rich as an oppressive class, a kind of neocolonial power within America.” That may be stretching things just a bit, but remember, it was the president himself who just told small-business owners they can’t take credit for their own success.

    D’Souza travels the world in search of clues to Obama’s thinking, using Dreams from My Father as his Baedeker guide. In a couple of spots his evidence seems forced or incomplete, but much of what he finds is disturbing. An old academic friend of the late Barack Obama Sr. tells D’Souza he believes father and son shared the same anti-colonial, anti-Western outlook.


    Interestingly, one of the Kenyans whom D’Souza meets now thinks the British colonialists left too soon. George Obama, one of the president’s cousins, tells D’Souza that if the British had stayed, “they would have developed us. Instead, we were fighting over nothing!”

    Where D’Souza hits storytelling gold is in his take on the recent controversy over President Obama’s return of a bust of Winston Churchill that had been in the Oval Office to the British government soon after he took office. Churchill was prime minister in the 1950s, when Kenya’s colonial government crushed the Mau Mau rebellion. His father claimed he was arrested by the British and other members of the family were interned.


    When columnist Charles Krauthammer last month repeated the charge that the Churchill statue had been returned, the White House went into bizarre overdrive to deny the story as “100 percent false.” Within days, the source of the confusion was revealed: The bust in question had been returned (as had been widely reported long before Krauthammer’s column), but a diffferent copy of the sculpture remains in the White House collection.


    D’Souza’s film is perfectly pitched for conservatives who are skeptical of Obama’s motives but reject the bizarre theories that he wasn’t born in the U.S. (To his credit, D’Souza shoots down that premise early on.)

    But the film may also appeal to independents who have more questions about Obama than they did when they voted for him in 2008. Its production values are solid — it was produced by Gerald Molen, who was in charge of bringing Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List to the big screen. Some preview showings in Houston were outgrossed only by the new Ice Age and Spider-Man movies. That augurs well for the film’s ability to succeed based on word of mouth.

    Dinesh D’Souza obviously wants his film to be taken seriously, and it deserves to be. In a couple places, however, it falls short in predicting where Obama, the anti-capitalist opponent of colonialism, would take America in his second term. I don’t think Obama’s move to reduce U.S. nuclear stockpiles from 5,000 warheads to 2,500 are quite as serious as D’Souza seems to. But the film scores points by highlighting Obama’s bizarre reluctance to develop North American oil and gas reserves while encouraging developing nations to develop theirs.


    No one can really claim they know exactly what makes the president tick. But 2016: Obama’s America leaves enough clues on the table to make us wonder if we would be taking an even bigger risk in reelecting him than we took in 2008. After all, we’ve never observed the actions of a Barack Obama who knows he will never have to face an electorate again.

    August 7, 2012 Vetting Conference Exposes More of Obama's Marxist Ties

    James Simpson
    Now that Democrats are demanding extensive documentation of Mitt Romney's financial history, President Obama's veiled past is definitely in play. And rest assured, the vetting of Barack Obama will happen.
    On Thursday, July 19th, Cliff Kincaid of America's Survival held another one of his National Press Club events. This one was appropriately titled: The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection.
    In kicking off this conference, Kincaid announced:
    Our July 19 conference fulfills the late Andrew Breitbart's promise to finally 'vet' the president. The diabolical dangers of Marxism and radical Islam must be exposed. It is time for the shocking truth about Obama and his agenda to emerge.
    "The Vetting" is a fitting title for this conference, for it explicitly detailed, with a host of new facts and evidence, from extensive, highly credible sources, the dangerously extremist nature of President Obama and the true goals of his virulently anti-American, radical leftist administration.
    For example, Paul Kengor, discussing his new book The Communist, Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor, reveals that Davis had a working relationship with Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, and her biological grandfather, Robert R. Taylor. Davis also had a working relationship with David Canter, a communist and mentor to Obama chief strategist David Axelrod. How interesting, he notes, that these people are now Obama's most important advisors.
    Joel Gilbert then makes a compelling case that Davis was, in fact, Obama's real father in his new documentary, "Dreams from My Real Father, a Story of Reds and Deception". There has been speculation about this over the years, but Gilbert has really done his homework. This thesis also makes a lot of sense given the other facts emerging about Obama and his ties to so many connected with Davis's Chicago network.
    The Conference further discussed how a huge network of U.S. and foreign communist and hard left organizations connected to this President has colluded with radical Islam for decades to oversee the destruction of their mutual enemy: America.
    This working relationship, and how it developed, was explained in depth by a prominent Soviet KGB defector, Konstantin Preobrazhensky, who spoke on his report, Communists and Muslims, the Hidden Hand of the KGB. For example, he describes the work of Karim Hakimov, a Soviet KGB operative who was one of the first of many "Muslims with a communist heart". An expert in Islam, he helped found the modern state of Saudi Arabia and befriended King Saud. He was instrumental in forming an anti-West group which was the precursor to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. As a result, Russia has "Observer" status with the group.
    He also cites Alexander Litvinenko, the KGB agent murdered by the Kremlin with Polonium 210, who charged that al Qaeda's current leader, Ayman al Zawahiri, was a trained agent of the KGB. Preobrazhensky further discusses a Taliban leader and close advisor to Osama bin Laden, Juma Namangoniy. Namangoniy was born in Soviet Uzbekistan and was also a KGB-trained communist. He was supposedly killed by coalition forces but his body has not been found.
    Overshadowing all is the malevolent Soros network, and the billions he and others like him are devoting to see Soros' "life's work" of destroying America come to pass.
    In addition to the aforementioned Preobazhensky, Kengor and Gilbert, speakers included veteran investigative reporter Trevor Loudon, author of Barack Obama and the Enemies Within; Larry Grathwohl, the only FBI informant to successfully penetrate Bill Ayers' Weather Underground; Rebel Pundit blogger Jeremy Segal; and the Clarion Fund's Ryan Mauro, speaking on the Muslim Brotherhood, the War on the New York City Police, and the film, The Third Jihad.
    Additional contributions were provided in the form of printed reports from former Romanian intelligence chief, Ion Mihai Pacepa, who exposed Lee Harvey Oswald's KGB assassin training; Walid Shoebat, who revealed Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Tina Trent who describes the latest radical left agenda supported by George Soros: the prison depopulation movement.
    I attended and reported on this event. There was so much ground covered, it is impossible to even summarize it here. My report was broken into two parts. Part I can be read in its entirety at RightSideNews.com. Part II will be out Monday.

    Exclusive - The Vetting - Obama Praised Private Equity When He Needed Cash












    by John Sexton 2 Jul 2012 post a comment
    President Barack Obama has attacked Gov. Mitt Romney's record in the private equity industry as CEO of Bain Capital. But ten years ago, as he struggled to raise funds for his long-shot U.S. Senate campaign, then-State Senator Obama decided to embrace the private equity industry and its wealthy Chicago political donors. At one point, Obama even sponsored a resolution in the Illinois Senate calling calling private equity firms like Bain "the best opportunity for long-term economic vitality" and for "the creation of jobs."

    Obama's campaign ads dismissively compare Romney's work at Bain to that of a "vampire" draining jobs and money from vulnerable companies and workers. After pushback from a handful of pro-free market Democrats in late May, the President himself publicly defended his campaign's attacks on private equity firms like Bain.
    But records from Obama's time as a state senator in Illinois, along with recollections of those who worked with him, present a very different stance. They indicate that Obama worked hard to position himself as a strong supporter of the venture capital industry. Obama attended industry social functions and used his position in the state senate to propose bills consistent with the legislative goals of the venture capital industry in the state.
    "The Barack Obama I knew in Springfield was very pro-private equity, private capital, and high technology" Republican State Senator Kirk Dillard, who served with Obama in the Illinois State Senate, said in a telephone interview with Breitbart News about Obama's record last week. "Mr. Obama clearly had many friends in the private equity business when he was a legislator," Dillard added.
    Maura O'Hara, the Executive Director of the Illinois Venture Capitalist Association, concurred with Dillard's assessment: "When he was in the State Senate I would describe him as a supporter of our industry." She recalls meeting Obama in 2002 at the IVCA's annual award dinner. That year, the IVCA's lifetime achievement award for "service to the private equity/venture capital community" was given to Jack Levin of Kirkland & Ellis Law Firm. State Senator Obama was asked to deliver the award because both he and Mr. Levin had attended Harvard Law School, albeit several decades apart. A photo from the event shows Obama grinning as he stands with his arm around Mr. Levin. Both men hold the award up between them.
    In 2000, Obama had run as a reformer against incumbent U.S. Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL)--and lost by a wide margin. A few years later, when he began contemplating a run for the U.S. Senate under the tutelage of political consultant David Axelrod, Obama faced a rich primary opponent from the financial world in Blair Hull, and a daunting fundraising task. And so he began to court the wealthy elite himself--a tactical shift that the far-left Obama worried might compromise him. As Obama recalled in his second memoir, The Audacity of Hope:
    I worry that there was also another change at work. Increasingly I found myself spending time with people of means--law firm partners and investment bankers, hedge fund managers and venture capitalists...And although my own worldview and theirs corresponded in many ways--I had gone to the same schools, after all, had read the same books, and worried about my kids in many of the same ways--I found myself avoiding certain topics during conversations with them, papering over possible differences, anticipating their expectations. (136-7)
    Obama's effort to show support for private equity went beyond socializing. Between 2001 and 2003, State Senator Obama introduced two bills and one resolution designed to boost the private equity business in Illinois. The first bill, introduced by Obama in early 2001, created a tax credit of up to 20 percent for anyone who invested in a "qualified venture capital fund in Illinois." The bill was never adopted by the full Senate.
    The following year, Obama introduced a bill titled the "Venture Investment Fund-Repeal." The bill itself is somewhat cryptic, but its purpose was to repeal the "Illinois Venture Investment Fund." (Ironically, this was a public venture capital fund similar to the Department of Energy program under Obama that funded Solyndra, the failed solar panel company which has dogged Obama's campaign for nearly a year.) At the time Obama introduced the bill, the Illinois Venture Capital Association had issued a legislative position paper which made four recommendations. Point one was the elimination of public venture capital managed by bureaucrats rather than professionals. According to the position paper, "The role of Illinois' government is to create a positive investment and entrepreneurial environment, but not to attempt to manage these funds [emphasis added]." The IVCA recommended investing the public money with private equity funds instead (i.e. with its members). Obama's attempt to repeal the public venture funds died in committee, though the fund was eliminated in a consolidation move by the Illinois General Assembly about a year later.
    In March 2003, Obama introduced a State Senate Resolution to set up a "Private Equity Task Force." The language of the resolution can fairly be described as offering a glowing assessment of the importance of private equity and is starkly at odds with the Obama campaigns recent attacks on Bain Capital:
    WHEREAS, Private equity is a vital aspect of the Illinois economy providing needed private capital to early and late stage companies in various industries, including but not limited to: retail, restaurant, manufacturing, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical devices, homeland security, software, wireless communications, transportation, and agriculture; and
    WHEREAS, The development of the private equity sector of the Illinois economy offers the best opportunity for long-term economic vitality, for the expansion of jobs, for the improvement of productivity and a quality standard of living, and for providing the greatest number of citizens with genuine opportunity;
    Compare the last paragraph with Obama's May defense of attacks on Bain Capital, in which he said: "My view of private equity is that it is set up to maximize profits, and that’s a healthy part of the free market, [but]...that’s not always going to be good for businesses or communities or workers."
    Of course, not every investment is going to work out, but Obama's 2002 resolution specifically stated that private equity is "the best opportunity for long-term economic vitality...and for providing the greatest number of citizens with genuine opportunity." In other words, it is the best thing for communities and workers.
    The message that Obama's prospective campaign donors received was that Obama was no longer positioning himself as the political reformer who would shake up Chicago and Washington--and that there was little daylight in between his own attitude towards private equity and the likely approach of rival Blair Hull.
    It not certain that Obama wrote the task force resolution himself. People familiar with the legislative process in Illinois say that such a resolution would normally by written by a senator or his/her staff. But when asked about the tone of the resolution, those who served with Obama had little doubt it sounded like something he might have said at the time. Retired State Senator Dave Sullivan said, "This Senate resolution is the Barack that I know." Senator Dillard, another co-sponsor of the resolution, was equally firm: "My memory is that Senator Obama was a champion of private equity and his creation of a Senate Resolution to create a task force proves it."
    When the Task Force resolution was adopted on May 30, 2003, Obama made a brief speech [pdf, page 161] in which he indicated that he had put it forward on behalf of "various persons in the industry":
    This bill forms a Private Equity Task Force. As many of you know, venture capital and private equity is one of the key mechanisms by which we finance new businesses in the State of Illinois. For a variety of reasons, Illinois has been lagging behind some of our competitor states in the formation of venture capital and its deployment in terms of seeding and funding new companies. This is an issue which has peaked [sic] the interest of various persons in the industry and so they have asked that we form this Private Equity Task Force to examine these issues.
    Obama's attempt to court private equity in the early 2000s was such that several people who knew him at the time believe he is still, at heart, a fan. "In my mind, he still believes in the industry," Maura O'Hara of the IVCA said. Others who worked for the Obama campaign in 2008, and who did not want to be quoted on the record agreed with her assessment. Republicans who knew him were less circumspect about the reasons for his current campaign rhetoric. "The President has private equity amnesia from his days as a University of Chicago professor, legislator, and he and the First Lady's days working at the prestigious Sidley Austin Law Firm," said Dillard. Former senator Sullivan offered a curt explanation for Obama's switch in tone: "I imagine it polls well."
    A story published Saturday by the New York Times notes that "Obama commercials painting [Romney] as a ruthless executive who pursued profits at the expense of jobs are starting to make an impact on some undecided voters." The mainstream media has coordinated its attacks with the Obama campaign, though many of those attacks, including a Washington Post investigation into outsourcing at Bain, have been debunked.
    Given Obama's record in Illinois, it is fair to ask when his own effusive admiration for private equity equity flip-flopped into his current disdain for "vampire" capitalism. When did he stop believing that private equity was the best chance for creating economic vitality, jobs, and genuine opportunity? And did he ever, in fact, believe it?

    ‘He’s Vetting Obama and Doesn’t Realize It!’: Limbaugh Puzzled by Obama Book Writer…and Cites The Blaze’s Will Cain

    Rush Limbaugh had a few choice words for historian David Maraniss — who Limbaugh gleefully described as “vetting Obama and doesn’t realizing it” — on his show today. Apparently, Maraniss isn‘t happy with the fact that his supposedly positive biographical sketch of President Obama has instead ended up being fodder for everyone who long suspected the President’s two self-penned memoirs of being utter fiction. Which, it turns out, they are.
    Inexplicably, Maraniss had complained about being cited for pointing this out in a segment with Soledad O’Brien on CNN, even though the role of a historian is to debunk falsehoods in the historical record. Must be something to do with political tunnel vision. Thankfully, as Limbaugh pointed out, The Blaze‘s Will Cain was there to raise the point on everyone’s mind. Watch the segment below:
    As you can see, Will Cain was having none of Maraniss’ hedging. “I think it raises some serious questions about what the role of a memoir is. Is it truth telling, or is it, as you said, some kind of ability to massage and make composite characters?”
    This was the question Limbaugh pounced on and hammered home, in his segment quoted below, courtesy of the Daily Rushbo:

    Why Are Cable News Networks Giving Free Airtime To Pro-Obama Propaganda Film?

    video
    by Tommy Christopher | 12:06 pm, March 9th, 2012
    212 comments As a liberal, this shouldn’t bother me. Yesterday, cable networks devoted whole segments to a film that presents President Barack Obama in a glowing, almost saintly light, even though it has little to no news value. The film focuses on the past, rather than on current events, and doesn’t present any new information (that’s why we call it “news,” knuckleheads), so even for a liberal like me, it’s hard to understand how these cable networks are doing anything other than trying to ensure the President’s reelection.
    In addition to its utter lack of news value, the film is one of the most broadly-appealing presentations of Obama that I’ve ever seen. It features President Obama resolutely standing up for what he believes in, which will especially appeal to independents, but it also shows him sticking it to the ivory-towered elites of liberal academia, which will be veritable catnip for conservatives. I’m referring, of course, to the much-hyped film of then-President of the Harvard Law Review Barack Obama introducing Professor Derrick Bell, the first tenured black professor at Harvard Law School, at a 1990 protest of Harvard’s hiring practices.
    This piece of fluff has it all: a young, idealistic Barack Obama showing off the oratory that would become his trademark, standing up to the eggheads at Harvard Law School for their failure to hire a tenured black female professor (which they didn’t do until 1998), palling around with the guy who is essentially the Jackie Robinson of Harvard Law. As if that wasn’t enough, a later version of the film even shows President Obama hugging the guy. We get it! All Hail Saint Obama!
    This tape was foreshadowed, by the late Andrew Breitbart at this year’s CPAC, as one spoke in a wheel of mind-blowing vetting of President Obama. Buzzfeed’s Ben Smith scooped Breitbart’s integrated Big sites by releasing the tape Wednesday morning, but without that incriminating hug. Editor-in-chief of Breitbart.com Joel Pollak and contributor Ben Shapiro later took to the Hannity show to expose the smoking guns that Smith left out. The Young Turks‘ Cenk Uygur breaks it down:


    The whole idea here is to smear Professor Bell as a “racialist radical,” thus smearing Barack Obama by association, and to accuse the media of covering it up. Now, Professor Bell’s views were somewhat controversial, but not as controversial as his style of legal scholarship, which involved the use of parables and narrative storytelling. But he was a “radical” in the same sense that Kevin Bacon‘s character in Footloose was a radical; that is, only if you’re a psychotic, uptight preacher who’s afraid of that Devil’s music.
    One of the “smoking guns” to this coverup that Shapiro and Pollak cite is the fact that Prof. Charles Ogletree told students at a lecture, after showing the film, that he had kept it hidden during the 2008 election (which is the part of this whole story that actually is an exclusive).
    I hate to break it to these guys, but Professor Ogletree isn’t part of the media, and unless he put some kind of magical forcefield around the PBS website, or Youtube (where it reached a million views within weeks of being uploaded on 10/15/2008), or every TV that received their 2008 broadcast of that footage, he didn’t have the ability to hide anything. The natural question, then, is why did he have the desire to do so, and the self-evident answer is that he wished to spare his (now-deceased) colleague the smearing is is receiving now.
    There’s also the question of why the rest of the media didn’t pick up on the tape, which is also fairly self-evident. It wasn’t newsworthy then, it isn’t now. If you don’t want to take liberal Tommy Christopher’s word for it, answer me this: why didn’t the conservative media pick up on it? Where was Newsbusters? You want to talk about digging, the Obama-hating Naked Emperor News tracked down videos so obscure, they wouldn’t make it into a Dennis Miller rant, but she completely missed this million-view YouTube?
    All kidding aside, this is not only not newsworthy, it does the exact opposite of what it’s supposed to do. I was working for AOL in 2008, and if I had seen this clip, I probably would have wanted to post it, but I would have struggled to eke out three paragraphs on it, and would have been beset with “IN THE TANK” accusations, because it shows President Obama in such a favorable light. The Bigs say there’s more to come, and if the next “bombshell” is anything like this, bring it on.
    The headline of this post, by the way, is an obvious bait-and-switch reference to filmmaker Davis Guggenheim‘s pro-Barack Obama documentary The Road We’ve Traveled, which begs the question “Why are cable networks devoting free airtime to a pro-Obama propaganda film?”
    In a nutshell, I have zero problem with news networks airing this, or any other campaign ad, for free as part of their news and commentary shows. In fact, I think it has a great democratizing effect in our politics. Whether you’re a candidate with a huge war chest, or one who’s barely getting by, all you need is a compelling spot and a Youtube account, and you’re in the ballgame. Plus, it allows for discussions (of varying quality) of the issues that appear in these ads. I especially like that creativity is rewarded in this process, which is rare in news and politics.
    I do have to give the Bigs props for digging up Cosmic Slop, the 1994 HBO movie that tears the roof off The Twilight Zone by casting the great George Clinton in the Rod Serling role, in an anthology of stories which includes Professor Bell’s 1992 short story The Space Traders. Other than that, though, they ought to heed Clinton’s advice regarding The Funk, and give it up.

    The sad part about all of this.... is Obama is getting away with this shit because PEOPLE DON'T CARE!

    Fucking Liberals ass bags

    Exclusive - The Vetting - Senator Barack Obama Attended Bill Ayers Barbecue, July 4, 2005








    Print Article Send a Tip


    by Joel B. Pollak 4 Jun 2012 post a comment
    As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama disavowed any connection with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground radical who was one of Obama's early backers and his colleague on the board of the Woods Fund in Chicago. We now have proof that Obama's association with Ayers continued even after Obama had been elected to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate--in the form of a now-scrubbed blog post placing Obama at the home of Ayers and his wife, fellow radical Bernardine Dohrn, on July 4, 2005.

    Dr. Tom Perrin, Assistant Professor of English at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama, was a graduate student at the University of Chicago at the time, and maintained a blog called "Rambling Thomas." He lived next door to Ayers and Dohrn in Hyde Park. He wrote at 8:44 a.m. on July 6, 2005:
    Guess what? I spent the 4th of July evening with star Democrat Barack Obama! Actually, that's a lie. Obama was at a barbecue at the house next door (given by a law professor who is a former member of the Weather Underground) and we saw him over the fence at our barbecue. Well, the others did. It had started raining and he had gone inside be the time I got there. Nevertheless.
    Dohrn is a Clinical Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern University, and Chicago did, in fact, record rainfall on the Fourth of July holiday in 2005.
    Breitbart News attempted to contact Dr. Perrin for further comment:
    Dear Dr. Perrin,
    My name is Joel Pollak, and I am the Editor-in-Chief of Breitbart News.
    We came across your blog entry from July 2005 in which you mentioned that then-Senator Obama had been a guest at the Ayers/Dohrn house next door.
    http://ramblingthomas.blogspot.com/2...1_archive.html
    I was wondering if you could provide more detail.
    Many thanks,
    Joel Pollak
    Dr. Perrin did not respond. He did, however, delete his entire blog from the Internet.
    Of course, Breitbart News had saved a screen grab of the blog beforehand:
    Obama's presence--as a U.S. Senator--at the Ayers barbecue has been confirmed by another source, who told Breitbart News: "I too saw Obama at a picnic table in the Ayers/Dohrn backyard, munching away--on the 4th of July."
    The fact that Obama socialized with Ayers and Dorn contradicts the statement that Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt gave the New York Times in 2008:
    Mr. LaBolt said the men first met in 1995 through the education project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, and have encountered each other occasionally in public life or in the neighborhood. He said they have not spoken by phone or exchanged e-mail messages since Mr. Obama began serving in the United States Senate in January 2005 and last met more than a year ago when they bumped into each other on the street in Hyde Park.
    That statement now appears to be "Clintonian" in its dance around the truth. Obama and Ayers may not have emailed or spoken by phone, but they had, we now know, spoken face to face--at least on July 4, 2005, and perhaps at other times as well.
    The continued connection between Obama and his radical, domestic terrorist associates until mere months before he launched his presidential campaign is sharply at odds with the way Obama minimized the relationship, as well as the way the media largely sought to portray it as an insignificant part of Obama's past.
    Whatever differences may have emerged between Obama and Ayers--and other far-left fellow travelers--since Obama took office and grappled with the realities of governing, Obama's migration towards the mainstream of American politics is very recent, and likely opportunistic. His intellectual and political roots remain extreme.

    Yesterday Obama was here in Colorado Springs at Colorado College.

    Mark Levin covered something he said that caught me off guard last night.

    I can't find the details at the moment, but Obama was talking about the car companies and how he had "helped" the car companies.

    In the next breath he said "We want to do that for a lot more of industry"... meaning "Nationalize" them.

    Levin covered it better than I can. What is bad is he didn't say this ONE time, he said it in TWO DIFFERENT SPEECHES.

    I'll try to find the text if I can.

    From Levin's site:

    August 9, 2012


    On Thursday's Mark Levin Show: President Obama is now on the campaign trail saying he wants to repeat his auto bailout ‘success’ with every manufacturing industry across America. He essentially wants to nationalize all industries and have them under government control and leave the bill to the taxpayer whether we agree on it or not. The past bailouts have been an absolute disaster and they're still bankrupt when you truly look at the numbers. Also, what once were the backbones behind the Democrat Party - the steel and coal and other industries, are now under direct attack from Obama and his Marxist ways. Can you imagine if Obama gets 4 more years and the disaster that he would cause? Also, Ann Coulter should have realized who Romney was when she first started advocating for him to become the Republican nominee and realize he's not that conservative. Finally, Aaron Klein calls in about his new book, Fool Me Twice.
