This is the person whose farewell party is the source of a tape being suppressed by the LA Times to protect Barack (You Can't Say His Middle Name is Hussein) Obama.

LA Times Still Sitting On Khalidi Tape, Reward Offered For Copy Of Tape, Who Else Attended The Event?
I wrote about this last Friday, after following Gateway Pundit's exposure of the tape and the LA Times' unwillingness to release it. Now, some bloggers as well as Newt Gingrich are offering reward money for the tape. The McCain campaign is on the case as well.
Can you imagine for a minute, if the LA Times had a video damaging to either Sen. McCain or Gov. Sarah Palin? I'd bet my life savings that it would be released to the public in a heartbeat. But when it's That One, well, the media circles the wagons around him.
No wonder newspapers like the LA Times are laying people off and losing money. No one wants to read them, especially when most of the public knows the liberal media is lying to them by omission of facts.
The Times excuse is they are trying to protect a source. Debbie Schlussel writes at her website:
The Los Angeles Times has a copy of the tape, but won't release it because they said the source--whom I believe is Arab American Action Network (AAAN) founder and anti-Israel Palestinian activist Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada--required it not be released as a condition of sharing it. That's because it likely shows Obama applauding an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel poem that was read at the dinner.
No wonder the Times doesn't want to release it.
Those who attended (the guest list):1. AAAN (Arab American Action Network)
2. Not In My Name (M.I.M. note: supposed "anti-war" group who is a front for the Revolutionary Communist Party)
3. Ali Abunimah (a Palestinian rights activist in Chicago who helps run Electronic Intifada, who met Obama in 2000)
4. Bernadine Dorhn and Bill Ayers (unrepentant domestic terrorists)
5. Barack Obama
6. Mayor of Chicago Richard Daley
7. Rashid Khalidi
8. Mona Khalidi
9. Gihad Ali, a Palestinian spoken word poet
10. NPR Worldview host Jerome McDonnell (not McDonald as written in the e-mail)
11. Camilia Odeh (director of SWYC Southwest Youth Collaborative)
12. Sanabel debka troupe (traditional Palestinian dance group)
13. Hatem Abudayyeh
14. Others - Up to 50 to 500, possibly 600 guests (based on Burbank Manor's seating capacity capabilities)
Whatever happened to objective journalism? The LA Times has lost any pretense of objectivity and moved to advocacy, this Khalidi tape being the latest example. There was also the Arnold Schwarzenkennedy groped women on a movie set, right before the 2003 California Recall election.
Contact information for the LA Times.
Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs makes an interesting (and frightening) observation:
It’s important to note that there is no such thing as “free speech” in the Gaza Strip; the terrorist group Hamas keeps an iron grip on media. This story could not have gone out, and “Abu Jayab” could not have appeared in it, without Hamas’ explicit cooperation and approval.
This is an endorsement of Barack Obama by Hamas.
Apparently, a Hollywood Director (could it be David Zucker????) contacted the group and put together the great ad below. The message is simple and effective, how terrorist dictators are laughing at the naivete of Barack Obama.

Obama's Church, July 2007, Printed Article In Bulletin:"Progressive Islam" Opposed To "Imperialism, Including Today’s Most Dominant Variety, American"
Most of our members do not know that my Master’s Degree from the University of Chicago’s Divinity School was in the area of Islam in West Africa during the 19th Century — when the trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was at its zenith. Islam has as many manifestations as Christianity and Judaism, but most Americans are only fed a media diet on Islam as it relates to the “war on terror” and the Palestinian muslim problem in the “state” of Israel.
Islam is much more, however, than the corporate-owned media would have you think. Below is a very helpful article on one branch if Islam in 2007.
What does Safi, who is a professor of Islamic Studies at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, have to say about "progressive Muslims?" Note the second paragraph on page 10 of the bulletin.
We in North America -- both Muslims and non-Muslims -- must once and for all give up the notion that the axis mundi uniquely passes through this continent. Progressive Islam seeks to stand in opposition to all forms of economic exploitation as well as imperialism, including today’s most dominant variety: American.
So, according to a piece in Obama's church program (during the time he was still a member of that "church"), "Progressive Islam" is opposed to American "imperialism," which how lefties and America haters describe the necessary defense of America.
Think I'm wrong? Read what Safi writes in a review of Islam Under Siege: Living Dangerously in a Post-Honor World, by Akbar S. Ahmed.
Ahmed does not try to come up with a “one explanation fits all” model. However, it is astonishing how useful this fluid paradigm is to explain situations as diverse as the Bosnian genocide, the BJP-led massacre of Muslims in Gujarat, Bin Laden’s masterminding of the 9/11 atrocity, and yes, Bush’s never-ending and absurd “war on terrorism” that increasingly is targeted at Muslims, even if Bush insists that this is not a war against Islam.
So is it any wonder that Safi also wrote a piece for a book edited by Michael Wolfe, Taking Back Islam entitled, “Being Muslim, Being American Through This Absurd ‘War on Terrorism?’” Or that Safi ridicules people like Robert Spencer or Daniel Pipes as "Islamophobes." More recently, Safi has condemned the promotion of the informative documentary "Obsession" as "hate in his Sunday paper."
Did anyone inform Safi that the 19 terrorists who attacked America on September 11, 2001 were not Southern Baptists and the attack was not masterminded by Jerry Falwell? No, it was an Islamofascist group called, Al Queda, led by Osama bin Laden. What about the rise of militant Islam in Iran and their proxy war against America since 1979? No, we're not supposed to be concerned, according to Safi, or that makes us bigots.
Speaking of 9/11, Safi listed a website in his CV relating to September 11. However, the website he created and maintained when he worked at Colgate University contains, among other items, petitions against retaliation on al-Queda and Afghanistan's Tablian by 9-11Peace.org and MoveOn.org. He also lists articles by America haters Noam Chomsky and Susan Sontag.
In February, Safi wrote in the Greensboro (NC) News-Record that Muslims would support Obama over Hillary Clinton because of his "cosmopolitanism -- raised in Hawaii and Indonesia, son of a white Midwestern mother and a Kenyan father -- also resonates with many Muslims who want their president to be a global citizen for a change." He also attacked Clinton, saying "...She favors an 'undivided,' (i.e., all Jewish) Jerusalem, which would signal even further suffering and catastrophe -- even ethnic-cleansing -- for Palestinians who for more than a thousand years have called Jerusalem home."
It would be great if so-called "Progressive Islam," as Safi promotes, actually took a stand against terror and for freedom. Unfortunately, it's just one more way of playing the Islamophobe card against critics.
And is it any wonder that Barack Obama's church, openly hostile to the State of Israel and America, would print Safi's piece?

In the interview (for his "Dreams of my Father" book), Obama calls the racist Reverend "a wonderful man" and the "best of what the black church has to offer."
This is the Jeremiah Wright whom Obama thinks is "wonderful."
"No, No, No, not God Bless America, God damn America!"
Here's the audio, starting at about 2:10.
“...just to take a, sort of a realist perspective...there’s a lot of change going on outside of the Court, um, that, that judges essentially have to take judicial notice of. I mean you’ve got World War II, you’ve got uh, uh, uh, the doctrines of Nazism, that, that we are fighting against, that start looking uncomfortably similar to what we have going on, back here at home.”

As part of a "Halloween Display" a West Hollywood resident, Chad Michael Morisette, has Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hung in effigy.
More from CBS Channel 2:
The mannequin is dressed in brunet wig, glasses and a red business suit. Another mannequin dressed as John McCain emerges from a flaming chimney.
Right, scumbag! It's "art" when it's a Republican, just like the Bush with a knife in his forehead "art" in Alameda, CA. Can you imagine if someone hung Barack Obama in effigy for Halloween? Hate crime charges would be filed quicker than you could say "raaaacism!"
Chad Michael Morisette, who lives in the house, told CBS 2 News that drivers and bus passengers have been stopping to snap pictures of the macabre scene.
Chad Michael Morrisette, scumbag
Morisette says the effigy would be out of bounds at any other time of year, but it's within the spirit of Halloween.
He says "it should be seen as art, and as within the month of October. It's Halloween, it's time to be scary it's time to be spooky."
When will the Secret Service pay this guy a visit? Where's the denunciations from "feminist" groups?
In the interview, Obama discusses on how best to redistribute wealth.
"If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I’d be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that."Obama illustrates the reasoning behind when liberals talk about a "living, breathing Constitution?" So they can get away from the Founding Fathers' original intent which is "constraining."
Also, is it any wonder that one Florida television station has been blacklisted by the Obama campaign? Why? Because anchor Barbara West (the last honest journalist?) actually asked Joe "Plugs" Biden tough questions, like if Obama's economic plan was out of Karl Marx.
As I said, pass this around. This Obama must not become President, or else we will face change we cannot afford.

Melanie Morgan writes today about Gold Star Mother Debbie Lee, a wonderful woman whose son, Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq. While in New Hampshire on Friday as a part of Move America Forward Freedom PAC's tour across America, Lee went to a debate between between Jeb Bradley and Democrat incumbent Carol Shea-Porter. Lee and fellow Gold Star Mother Natalie Healy confronted Shea-Porter for claiming during the debate she had contacted Healy, which she had not. That's when things turned nasty.
At that point a man in the crowd came up questioned her, demanding proof that Shea-Porter had just lied, and Debbie simply pointed to Natalie and said “She’s the proof”. The man said he was a Vietnam Vet and that he had friends who were POWs and MIAs and Debbie put her hand on his arm to show compassion for his loss and said, "I'm sorry". Debbie also said that he himself would be deserving of at least a response from a Congresswoman’s office if he requested it. He said “we’ve all lost things” in this war, referring to Iraq. But he said it so very condescendingly she was absolutely appalled that he would refer to Marc as a ‘thing’ to be ‘lost.'
She told him, “That’s my son, not a THING” and he responded flippantly “You’re just being used by the campaign” referring to Jeb Bradley’s people. Debbie found out later on that the man who verbally attacked her was actually Ray Buckley who is the Chairman of the State of New Hampshire Democrat Party. She was just devastated to find out that someone of such a high office in the Democrat Party would just ATTACK a Gold Star mom and mock the sacrifice her son made the way Ray Buckley did. He was so condescending and abrasive with his remarks and his demeanor toward her that we feel it cannot be ignored. Buckley should be ashamed of himself and resign his position!
What is just as shameless and vulgar is that Buckley lied about being a Vietnam Vet, according to Jonn at This Ain't Hell, who found his wikipedia entry which shows his birth date as 1959.
Buckley also has a questionable past. He's been accused of possessing child pornography (he was later cleared) and sexually harassing young male staffers. Jonn also noted a YouTube video in which he says "Hitler should have bombed The Hague, picking his nose and eating the result for the camera, saying 'F**k America'." Here is one YouTube video on the subject (WARNING: strong sexual content and language, viewer discretion advised).
Buckley is also a Barack Obama supporter.
This is not the way any Gold Star Mother should be treated. Buckley should apologize and resign. If not, he will further illustrate how the Democrat Party does not respect the sacrifices nor the families of our fallen.

From: Bob Carey (Empire-Capitol Strategies)
Sent: Thursday, October 23, 2008 3:37 PM
To: 'Bob Carey (Empire-Capitol Strategies)
'Subject: Fairfax County, Virginia Rejecting FWABs
As many of you know, Sam Wright, Director of the Military Voting Project at the National Defense Committee, sent this excellent letter to the Department of Justice Voting Rights Section encouraging them to investigate the actions of Fairfax County, Virginia Board of Elections regarding witness requirements on Federal Write-In Absentee Ballots, the provisional ballots military and overseas voters use if they have not received their regular absentee ballots.
The problem is that the Fairfax County government had originally interpreted Virginia law to require all Federal Write-In Absentee ballots to have a witness' signature, printed name and address on the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot. However, the underlying Virginia law only requires this witness signature, printed name and address if they are taking advantage of the special Virginia provision that allows the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot to ALSO serve as the absentee ballot application. Because that's different from what the federal Voting Assistance Guide says, hundreds of Federal Write-In Absentee Ballots received to date were potentially going to be rejected. In fact, as of today, while about 260 Federal Write-In Absentee Ballots had been received by Fairfax County, only five had the witness name and address.
I've been in contact with the Fairfax County Registrar, Rokey Fulman, and he accepted my recommendation to contact the Virginia State Board of Elections to confirm this interpretation of the Virginia statute, as Sam's letter points out the Fairfax interpretation is likely incorrect. I'm happy to report that he has received guidance from the State Board of Elections that the witness name and signature requirement do indeed only apply if the FWAB is also being used simultaneously as an absentee ballot application. Therefore, so long as a Federal Post Card Application is received by election day, the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot will count, which is the normal process for military absentee ballots to be cast.
Hopefully this will allow for the ballots to be fully counted. National Defense Committee, through its Military Ballot Protection Program, will continue to monitor this development, take appropriate and forceful action where needed, and advise you all as to what we are doing.
Now, all that's left to do is make sure their votes are counted. I left messages with the McCain Campaign and spoke with aides to one Fairfax County Supervisor (after being directed there by the county Republican Party), and haven't heard any word yet. So, if this organization has stepped in to make sure the votes of service members from Fairfax County are being counted, good!
I will keep my eyes posted though.
From his sickbed, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has secretly been orchestrating meetings with lobbyists and lawmakers from both parties to craft legislation that would greet the new president with a plan to provide affordable medical coverage to all Americans, a measure he has called "the cause of my life."
Mr. Kennedy has been sidelined for months with a dangerous form of brain cancer. But despite his disheartening medical prognosis - or maybe because of it - aides and activists say, the Massachusetts Democrat's decades-long quest for health care reform may now be closer to success than ever.
"There is a serious process moving forward and that augurs well," said Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, a nonprofit health care advocacy group. "There really is a sea change that should not be underestimated in terms of attitude."
...Mr. Kennedy's goal, his aides say, is to introduce a universal health care bill as soon as the new Congress convenes next year and to push quickly for its passage - a much-accelerated timetable compared with the last time that a health care overhaul was on the agenda, at the start of the Clinton administration.
"Senator Kennedy has spent the last several weeks laying the groundwork for reform so that we can be ready to go in 2009," said his spokesman Anthony Coley. "This is and has been the cause of Senator Kennedy's life."
...The 76-year-old senator received a diagnosis in May of a malignant brain tumor and, after surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment, has been recuperating at his family's compound in Hyannis Port. Insiders say he devotes several hours a day to his health care project.
"Here's a guy who has made a serious effort on health reform several times in the past and failed," said John Rother, a top executive at AARP, the senior citizens lobby. "There will be a very strong impulse in the Congress to do things for him, especially things he really cares about, and health care would be at the top of that list."
"There is this real feeling," Mr. Rother added: " 'Let's do it for Ted.'"
Do what, bankrupt the country? Increase our taxes? Go the way of a failed healthcare system like Canada has for the sake Ted Kennedy?
I don't intend any ill will towards the Senator and I hope for the best in his cancer treatment. But the shamelessness in politicizing his condition to promote socialized medicine and the willingness of those in both parties to go along with it as a tribute to him is something I find offensive.
Let's remember other bills in which Kennedy has written. the 1965 Immigration Reform act did nothing to fix immigration, it has only encouraged millions to sneak in this country illegally. As a part of George W. Bush's absurd "New Tone" philosophy, he wrote the "No Child Left Behind" bill, which is a horrible piece of legislation. So, as a tribute to the last of the Kennedy boys, we're going to wreck our economy and the world's best health care system?
I don't think so.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter "B" in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.
Ashley Todd, 20, of Texas, initially told police that she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and that the suspect became enraged and started beating her after seeing her GOP sticker on her car.
Police investigating the alleged attack, however, began to notice some inconsistencies in her story and administered a polygraph test.
Authorities, however, declined to release the results of that test.
Investigators did say that they received photos from the ATM machine and "the photographs were verified as not being the victim making the transaction."
This afternoon, a Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Todd confessed to making up the story.
The commander added that Todd will face charges; but police have not commented on what those charges will be.
Shame on Ashley Todd for making up this attack! It's bad enough when liberals make up stories of phony hate crimes, but for a supposed McCain worker (I have my suspicions, I'll get to that below) to do it is abhorrent. She should be punished for this criminal act.
I didn't post any news about this attack after hearing and reading about it last night, precisely because of various reports saying the alleged attack didn't pass the smell test.
I wonder how much of a McCain supporter she really was anyway. On a cached page of her MySpace account (which is now locked as "private") she has a Ron Paul 2008 Hope for America button in her "Interests" section. I can't find any pro-McCain information on this page.
Why Is the LA Times Refusing To Release A Potentially Damaging Video Of Obama Toasting A Former PLO Member?
Obama has denied knowing Kahlidi, but LA Times writer Peter Wallsten wrote in April of the farewell party for Kahildi, leaving Chicago for a position New York.
...Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi's wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking.
His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. . . . It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table," but around "this entire world."
By all accounts, the party also included harsh, anti-Israeli rhetoric.
At Khalidi's 2003 farewell party, for example, a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, "then you will never see a day of peace."
One speaker likened "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been "blinded by ideology."
Obama adopted a different tone in his comments and called for finding common ground. But his presence at such events, as he worked to build a political base in Chicago, has led some Palestinian leaders to believe that he might deal differently with the Middle East than either of his opponents for the White House.
"I am confident that Barack Obama is more sympathetic to the position of ending the occupation than either of the other candidates," said Hussein Ibish, a senior fellow for the American Task Force on Palestine, referring to the Israeli presence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that began after the 1967 war. More than his rivals for the White House, Ibish said, Obama sees a "moral imperative" in resolving the conflict and is most likely to apply pressure to both sides to make concessions.
"That's my personal opinion," Ibish said, "and I think it for a very large number of circumstantial reasons, and what he's said."
Is it no wonder that Obama's former "church" also attacked Israel, supported the terrorist organizations Hamas & Hezbollah and was a friend to Jew hater Louis Farrakhan?
Yet the LA Times refuses to release this tape. Why? If Sarah Palin was caught on tape with white supremacists or an Alaskan secessionist group, you can bet your life savings the media would release the video faster than you can say Bullwinkle.
The answer is obvious. If this tape were released, Obama would lose the Jewish vote. Don't forget Jesse Jackson's recent comments about Israel losing clout in an Obama Administration. This also speaks volumes about the LA Times' liberal bias. Remember how the LA Times broke a story accusing Arnold Schwarzenkennedy of sexually harassing women during the filming of a movie, just before the recall election of Democrat Gov. "Red" Davis.
This is one more example of the liberal media being in the tank for Obama and refusing to do their part in vetting his background.

Obama In 1995 Accuses White Suburban Executives Of Not Wanting To Pay Taxes To Educate Inner-City Children
Quotes from the interview:
"I think whether you're a white executive living out in the suburbs who doesn't want to pay taxes to Inner City children for them to go to school...."Bashing America for lack of "sacrifice" in redistribution of wealth:
"...certain portions of the African-American community are doing as bad if not worse, and recognizing that my fate is tied up with their fates that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Unfortunately, that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country is not always willing to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about a new day and a new age. ...here is a certain race weariness that confronts the country precisely because the questions are so deeply embedded and the solutions are going to require so much investment of time, energy and money."Obama also compares what black Americans go through with genocides in Africa and Bosnia.
"Because I think of the problems that African Americans face in this country we tend to have a sanitized view in the African American community about what is going on in Africa and the truth of the matter is, is that many of the problems that Africa faces whether it is poverty or political suppression or ethnic conflict is just as prominent there and can't all be blamed on the effects of colonialism. What it can be blamed on is some common factors that effect Bosnia or Los Angeles or all kinds of places on Earth and that is the tendency for one group to try and suppress another group in the interest of power or greed or resources or what have you."
Don't tell me he didn't know what Jeremiah Wright was preaching. He knew damn well for 20 years and agreed with every word of it.
Can you imagine any white candidate talking this way about blacks or any other minority group and getting away with it? Then why is it that the Democrat Party nominated and millions of Americans are willing to elect an angry racist for President of the United States? Obama not only hates whites, he proves even further the depth of contempt he has for the United States of America.
Military Ballots Thrown Out While Prisoners Registered To Vote? Something Smells Rotten In Fairfax County Board of Elections
And So It Begins: Military Ballots Being Tossed in Fairfax County, VA
Marc Ambinder at Gay Gossip Site and Antisemitic Conspiracy Newsletter The Atlantic:
Military ballots are being tossed in Fairfax Co, VA because of a “technicality.” Not a lot of them compared to the size of the electorate, but more than a few.
The registrar of voters in a Democrat. He thinks it “stinks,” but the law is the law.
Fairfax general registrar Rokey Suleman said Thursday that he has had to reject some of the ballots because of a Virginia law passed in 2002. That law -- then called Senate Bill 113, sponsored by then state Sen. Bill Bolling – requires that when an overseas citizen wants to request an absentee ballot and cast a vote with the same paperwork, it requires not only a witness signature but also the current address of the witness.
The McCain campaign said there’s not even a space for the witness to list an address. Suleman agreed; he said the federal document was changed in recent years and the space for the witness address was removed. But the Virginia law hasn’t changed.
Democrats insist they’re biased towards access... so will they try to intervene on behalf of these voters?
Incidentally, a quickie law could fix this.
But they won't do it.
The total number, according to Navy Times, is 255 absentee ballots. The McCain Camp appears to be on the case. Also, the Obama campaign is pressuring some Virginia counties to let out of state students vote in Virginia, which has now become a battleground state.
And, insult upon insults, while Fairfax general registrar (and Democrat) Rokey Suleman is throwing out some military ballots due to a technicality, the Fairfax County Office of Elections went to the Fairfax County jail earlier this month to register voters, according to the DC Examiner.
Both Fairfax County General Registrar Rokey Suleman and Sheriff Stan Barry deny any wrongdoing in the decision that granted Office of Elections on-site access to the Adult Detention Center in downtown Fairfax. Barry did, however, say it was unprecedented in his 30-year career with the county.So why is a Democrat who ran for office in Ohio earlier this year (Suleman) now running the Fairfax County elections office? Does it not stink to high heaven either that the sheriff involved in this is a Democrat also?
“We’d never run into it before, honestly,” Barry said. “They contacted us last week and we were not willing to take any role in it, but basically they were just asking for access to the prisoners who were eligible to vote, and we gave them that.”
...Felons are not eligible to vote in Virginia without having their rights restored by the governor. Suleman said his office, at the request of criminal defense attorneys who approached his staff, delivered registration forms and absentee ballots to inmates with misdemeanor convictions and those awaiting felony trials.
Suleman, who is listed as a founder of the Trumbull County (Ohio) Young Democrats, ran for office in the Buckeye State as a Democrat earlier this year. He said the office he holds in Virginia is nonpartisan.
Barry, an elected Democrat, said an initial visit took place Wednesday, and again on Friday to pick up completed forms.
Republicans likened the visit to Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine’s drive to restore voting rights to non-violent felons, who are believed to vote disproportionately Democratic.
“I’m stunned and outraged,” said Fairfax County Republican Committee Chairman Jim Hyland. “To me it’s unbelievable that the Democrats are stooping to this, that they want to count on lawbreakers to try and switch this state from red to blue.”
He said the committee is “going to look at all of our legal options, whether this was in the bounds of the law.”
Said Fairfax County Supervisor Michael Frey, a Republican: “Given the budget, and how tight staff is, it does sort of smell that the place they’re going for on-site visits in the Fairfax County jail.”
This is an insult to Virginians serving in our military. If anyone deserves the right to vote in Virginia, it is the men and women serving this nation overseas who are fighting to protect that right. They certainly deserve it more than prisoners who are being signed up by partisan Democrats for the sake of swinging the election.

Ayers & Obama Participated in 2002 Conference One Week After Ayers Says "I'm Open About What I Think And No One Here Is Surprised About What I Think"
Barack Obama has said Bill Ayers was "just a guy in my neighborhood" who did bad things when he was eight years old and that the Democrat candidate "thought he had been rehabilitated."
In the interview, he says:
"I considered myself partly an anarchist then and I consider myself partly an anarchist now. I mean I'm as much of an anarchist as I am a Marxist, which is to say I find a lot of the ideas in anarchism appealing."
"There is a struggle over various religious fundamentalism, Jihad being the most visible, but the religious fundamentalism of the Christians and Jews is equally troubling." "....The people of the world are being exploited and oppressed and militarized by the great imperialistic powers led by the United States, that is the situation today (2002) in my view. It's a situation we should all be horrified at and we should all oppose.
"Is one of those regrets that I took extreme measures against the United States at a time of tremendous crisis? No it is not. I don't regret that."
"I'm very open about what I think and no one here is surprised about what I think."
Liberals and wishy-washy pantywaists like Colin Powell think this is no big deal and it's just a mean attack by the GOP on Obama. But the Ayers relationship matters, as he still openly holds the same views as a professor which he held as an active domestic terrorist. That is, hatred of America and the economic system of capitalism, which is the source of what has allowed generations to experience the American Dream.
Furthermore, we are still in a war with Islamofascist terrorists. How does it look to the world (and to the jihadists) when a Presidential candidate is friends with an unrepentant domestic terrorist who still spouts anti-Americanism? They'll think, "Thank Allah, this Obama is our guy! Get him elected President and the heat is off of us."
Yet Obama, knowing these facts about Ayers, did not turn away in disgust or refuse to be associated with him. This is a common thread repeated in the relationships with the racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Fr. Michael Pfleger. Two other individuals with extreme attitudes towards America and race, yet Obama stayed yoked with them for years until it was no longer politically expedient?
This is the Democrat Candidate for President of the United States, who might win the election?
God help us!
Only when you get to the fourth paragraph do you find out the following.
Alaska law does not specifically address expenses for a governor's children. The law allows for payment of expenses for anyone conducting official state business.
And, they find a previous Alaska governor Tony Knowles, say the children have no business coming to these events. Guess what? Knowles is a Democrat who supports Obama. Real objective source.
So? What's the use of the story? She broke no laws and was fully entitled to do this, as she is a mother as well as a governor.
I find it interesting that the AOP and other members of the liberal MSM who are in the tank for Obama will do all this investigative work on Palin, as well as a private citizen (Joe the Plumber) whose only crime was exercising his right to ask a political candidate (Obama) an important question. But they won't spend one damn minute investigating anything about this American Idol Presidential candidate named Obama, who too many people are willing to vote for without anyone having really vetted him and his background.
Here's what I'd like to ask the Associated Obama Press.
- If Alaska paying for Sarah Palin and her family's travel expenses is an important story, why then isn't Barack Obama investigated for going to Kenya on the public dime in 2006 to campaign for Raila Odinga? For a refresher, Odinga, a Marxist candidate for the 2007 election, signed an agreement with an Islamic group to institute Sharia law if he was elected. The aftermath of his narrow loss resulted in violent riots where many were killed.
- Why has AOP refused to look closely at Obama's relationship with anti-American radicals like Bill Ayers and racists like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Fr. Micahel Pfleger? All these associates have in common a deep hate of the United States of America, as well as capitalism, and sympathize with America's enemies.
- Cindy McCain was smeared recently by the New York Slimes, who brought up her drug addiction, for which she has received help for. George W. Bush, in 1999, was dogged by allegations in these same media outlets about possible use of cocaine (never proven). The media also revealed Bush had been arrested some 25 years earlier for drunken driving. Obama has admitted using marijuana as well as cocaine. Why has there not been the same willingness to look into Obama's previous drug use and whether or not he still uses drugs? Has Obama ever been arrested for drug possession or drunken driving? After all, these are the kinds of things which can prevent a potential government employee from gaining high security clearance.
Not a ride I want this nation to take.

If Obama officially wins, McCain is likely to challenge it, charging the Obama campaign with some of the very crimes engaged in by McCain himself. Our reaction should be exactly the same in the event of a McCain challenge as in the event of a McCain "victory." We should not sit back for even a split second and wonder how it will work out. We should not try to organize a plan on the spur of the moment to travel to key battleground states. We should be prepared already to immediately travel to Washington, D.C., head straight for the White House, occupy Lafayette Square Park, the Ellipse, and surrounding streets, block entrances, and shut the place down until Obama is recognized as the president elect or we are guaranteed a credible election with universal registration and hand-counted paper ballots.
We may be there for days or weeks or months. But we must be there. We must be there by the millions. We must show each other, and the nation, and the world that we have had enough, that we will not stand for one more stolen election, that we will not give in to fear, lies, theft, and intimidation. If they choose to attack our nonviolent gathering of citizens, let them do it right in front of George W. Bush's White House with the world's media watching. We will not back down.
I'm not hoping it comes to this, of course. If it doesn't because the official election results are credible and just, we should celebrate and prepare to lobby our government for real change. But if resistance does not develop because people are too scared and obedient to act, then you'll still be glad you packed ahead of time, and you might want to look into tickets to Canada.
What does that sound like but an attempt at national blackmail by a bunch of Marxists, threatening anarchy if the country does not choose the Marxist rabble-rouser from Chicago named Obama?
Swanson has caused trouble before with his Code Pinko & AfterDowningStreet allies. He was one of those who disrespected the naturalization of new citizens at Monticello this past July 4th, interrupting President Bush's speech at the ceremony. As mentioned earlier, he has been associated with Obama bundler Jodie Evans on several occasions. Here is one example.
Last night in a bar in Austin, Texas, we held a family reunion for the peace movement. The occasion was the presentation of the Camp Casey Peace Awards. ...Mimi Kennedy presented an award to the amazing Jodie Evans, co-founder of Code Pink.
Hey Dave, instead of Canada, consider a one-way boat ride to Cuba, since you and your buddies like communism so much.
Unapologetic Slanderer of Marines Calls Constituents "Rednecks" After Calling Them "Racists" Days Earlier
Just days after classifying western Pennsylvania as racist, Murtha took a step back from those comments, albeit a small one.What a way to insult your constituents.
"What I said, that indicted everybody, that's not what I meant at all. What I mean is there's still folks that have a problem voting for someone because they are black," Murtha said.
"...This whole area, years ago, was really redneck," Murtha told Channel 4 Action News.
Slander should be Jackoff's middle name. He slandered a group of Marines in Iraq, claiming (with no evidence whatsoever) that they had murdered innocent civilians "in cold blood." Now, almost all of the accused Marines have been acquitted and this treasonous son of a bitch has refused to apologize.
John McCain weighed in Murtha's stupidity today, saying (according to Salena Zito at Forty-Fourth Estate):
"I'm going to tell people in Western Pennsylvania that I don't believe they are racists, as Congressman Murtha alleges," said McCain, in the interview. He called the comment "disgraceful." Murtha, a Johnstown Democrat, has apologized for the racist comments.Here's to hoping that Western Pennsylvania votes out that modern day Benedict Arnold and elects a patriot by the name of William Russell, Iraq War Vet.
Murtha last week said that a racist mindset in Western Pennsylvania could cost Obama as much as four percentage points at the polls.
"Congressman Murtha made inexcusable statements. I'm glad he apologized but that's the nature of Congressman Murtha,” McCain said. "Why anybody would say that about the good people in Western Pennsylvania or anywhere else in America is utterly inexcusable."
Because traitors don't belong in Congress.

ABC News' Matthew Jaffe Reports: As Election Day looms just over two weeks away, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said Saturday that with Republicans firing "vicious" and "dangerous" attacks at Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., voters are "having a difficult time" opting for the man who would become the nation's first African American president.
"Undecided people are having a difficult time just culturally making the change, making the move for the first African American president in the history of the United States of America," the Democratic vice-presidential nominee said at a San Francisco fundraiser Saturday evening. "So we need to respond. We need to respond at the moment, immediately, not wait, not hang around, not assume any of this won't stick."
"You see these vicious attacks on Barack's character," Biden told supporters. "I mean, this is dangerous stuff these guys are doing. This stuff is on the edge. It's on the edge. You know, there's some folks out there in the community nationwide that aren't as stable as others. It's a very small minority. But having these rallies where people are showing up saying, you know, the things they're saying - I don't even want to repeat them -- it's not a healthy thing."
The face of Ugly, saying Sarah Palin should be "gang raped."
Obama's $50K bundler (and leader of Islamofascist terrorist enabler group Code Pinko) Jodie Evans.
Adam "the Phony Sgt" Kokesh, interrupting John McCain's RNC Convention speech. (Of course, the Obama MSM ignores or plays down these people).
Did "Plugs" Biden and the Obama MSM ever consider that it's not skin color that is turning undecided voters away from Obama? It's his ideas or redistributing wealth, attacking middle America and small business owners (in the case of Joe the Plumber) as well as his deceitfulness in his relationship with Bill Ayers.
Personally, it's ideas that attract me to a candidate. I don't care what color or what gender they are. If I'd been living in an area where I could have cast a vote, I would have happily supported and voted for Michael Steele or Lynn Swann, just as I'm happy to enthusiastically support Sarah Palin. But leave it to liberals like Biden, who constantly look down upon middle Americans as unsophisticated, bigoted rednecks.
Then again, there's never an examination on the sexist attacks on Sarah Palin (including from Colin Powell), as well as similar allegations made by supporters of Hillary Clinton toward her from the Obama camp and their supporters.
Is it no surprise that Biden's comments came in the same elitist city San Francisco where Obama stated middle Americans bitterly cling to guns and religion?
So, Powell confirmed to many of us who already knew, that he is a weasel who will change political affiliations like the way the wind blows. Remember he said he'd be comfortable serving in the Clinton Administration.
I recall, back in 2000 or 2001, listening to Lee Rodgers one morning on KSFO predict that Colin Powell would stab George W. Bush in the back the first chance he got.
Rodgers was prophetic, as Powell did just that after leaving office in 2005. Not only that, it was Powell's deputy, Richard Armitage, who leaked Valerie Plame-Wilson's name to columnist Robert Novak. He kept his lips sealed while "Scooter" Libby was smeared for life by the media, the Wilsons and Democrats.
Jonn at This Ain't Hell also has the following to say about the turncoat Powell.
In 1991, Hussein couldn’t have defended Baghdad against the US, and one of the reasons it would have been a cake walk is because the world hadn’t seen us leave Somalia with our tails between our legs yet - the act that bon Laden admits encouraged him to attack us.
...All of these northeast Republicans (who are mostly a popcorn fart away from being Limousine liberals anyway) jumping ship is not news. They’ve been uncomfortable with the concept of being associated with grassroots Conservatives since Reagan, and they’ve been looking for an excuse to jump ship that makes them look good in the media anyway. What could make them look better than voting for the affirmative action candidate?I wonder also: did Powell make this endorsement as a way of kissing up to hateful, anti-American types like Harry Belanfonte, who made racist comments questioning Powell's skin color when he served as Bush's secretary of state?
Whatever his motivations, Powell proves he never put his country first, only his own self interest.
A 12 year old in New Smyrna Beach, FL, was called a racist by her classmates. Her crime? Wearing a t-shirt saying "Go Sarah Go."
Also in Florida (Clearwater, to be exact), a man had $4,500 in damage to his Lexus. He believes the damage was done because he had a McCain/Palin sticker on his car.
(TampaBayOnline): Frank Armstrong was preparing to go for a jog this morning when he noticed his Lexus – adorned with a McCain-Palin sticker - had been vandalized with obscenities and a burned American flag.The worst part isn't just the vandalism by tolerant liberals, it's the comments supporting the act listed below the story.
Armstrong discovered the damage to his 2006 Lexus about 8:30 a.m. at his Sand Key condominium at 1400 Gulf Blvd. Clearwater police and Armstrong said someone etched obscenities and "KKK" into the paint, burned several areas of the car with cigarettes, set the flag on fire on his hood and may have urinated on the vehicle. Officers and Armstrong think the car was singled out because of its political stickers, including one reading "Nobama."
"This is definitely a hate crime," said Armstrong, a 41-year-old physician.
Police estimated damage at $4,500. Police classified the incident as "criminal mischief/hate crime" and said it appeared "to be politically/racially motivated because the victim affixed a bumper sticker supporting the McCain campaign as well as an anti-Obama bumper sticker."

I can only pray that Frank-the-Lexus owner has a McCain-Plain yard sign.

Such a sad story.
Sorry to hear his Rebel flag probably a family heirloom was destroyed.Sorry to hear that Republicans cannot get credit and must destroy their own cars to get a new one.I know how those KKK member like to remain hooded and not outed like this.

Jim Gilmore stressed to those in attendance that the race is far from over and the polls reported by the liberal media are only designed to frighten voters away from the polls. Gilmore also (as he told this blog last weekend) brought up the issue of Democrat Mark Warner calling Christians, pro-lifers, the NRA and homeschoolers a threat to what it means to be an American.
Keith Finnian stressed his experience as an entrepreneur to liberal Gerry Connolly's career politician status and how Connolly has mismanaged Fairfax County's finances.
The lib media was there, CNN below.
As was our friends at FOX News (Carl Cameron).
So, the Obama Campaign cut the National Anthem, which was to be sung by 17 year old Zach Bengal.
WMUR News has more:
LONDONDERRY, N.H. -- A Londonderry high school student was supposed to sing the national anthem at Barack Obama's rally Thursday, but he ended up not being able to.
Just hours before he was to hit the stage, the Obama campaign told him he was no longer needed.
Zach Bengal, 17, said he was bumped because the campaign had to make time for more speeches.
He said the campaign worker who broke the news was apologetic and said they'd keep him in mind for the future.
In a written statement, the campaign said it regretted what it called a miscommunication with Bengal, but it said several other New Hampshire residents were able to speak at the event.
Like the photo above, isn't it telling that Barack (Don't say his middle name is Hussein) Obama would cut our National Anthem, instead of speaker times? More partisan politics, screw the National Anthem!
But don't question his patriotism! They're willing to pay more taxes..
Note to the McCain Campaign: if you're in Londonderry, give Zach a call.

Barack Obama, a.k.a. "Zero" has received the endorsement of the liberal Washington ComPost. Click here to read it (WARNING: Will induce vomiting).
There's a ton of hypocrisy in the not so surprising endorsement. They attack John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as vice president, even though she has more executive experience than "Zero." There is no mention of the fact that previous senators turned President like John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson had years of experience in the Senate. Compared to Barack Obama's experience of 143 working days in the US Senate, at the time he announced his run for the Presidency.
This endorsement is not surprise, given the majority of positive stories and photo essays in Obama's favor, as well as how liberal ComPost writer Dana Milbank first foisted the lie of assassination threats coming from a McCain supporter at a rally (according to the Secret Service, none were reported).
It should be noted also that the ComPost, to my knowledge, has never endorsed a Republican for President. According to wikipedia:
As Katharine Graham (the former publisher of the Post) noted in her memoirs Personal History, the paper long had a policy of not making endorsements for presidential candidates. In 2004, that policy changed with the Post's endorsement of Democratic candidate John Kerry.
As with most of the so-called "mainstream media," the ComPost has been in the tank for Obama, hardly living up to its self-proclaimed title as "Independent Newspaper."
What excuses will ombudsperson Deborah Howell give in Sunday's paper for those of us who've accurately called the ComPost out on their biased election coverage?

If that were true, Oliver Stone would have been secretly seized and thrown in Abu Gharib prison.
But the campaign of Barack (You can't say his middle name is Hussein) Obama is once again, either directly or through acolytes, attempting to silence and smear any person or group who dares question "The One" (or should I say, Zero).
Ask Joe the Plumber. Here's a guy who wants to live the American dream, but would be unable to under Obama because he could not run the business he wants to buy due to the confiscatory taxes Zero would impose.
What's he had to go through? The Obama MSM, have dropped their obsession in finding dirt on Sarah Palin temporarily to find anything to destroy Joe's life. Why? He dared to question the Obamessiah! As a result, he's had his career questioned, his voting records examined, the Daily Kos has published his addresses and other personal information, and he's been called "racist."
Way to go, Obama media. In 24 hours, we get all this information about an ordinary American just questioning a Presidential candidate, but this same media is not interested in the fact that an RNC speech disruptor who is not only an enabler of Islamic terrorism, she is also an Obama campaign bundler.
"Objective media" appears to be the new oxymoron.
Also, I received an e-mail from Our Country Deserves Better PAC and found out that Obama supporters have targeted them, even going as far as to call the Secret Service for the ad below.
Thankfully, Our Country Deserves Better is not backing down and is currently in the middle of a cross country Stop Obama Tour. But individuals are being intimidated, as Ace of Spades writes.
The tip, and this is just a tip, but it's coming from someone reliable:
The problem in this story is twofold. Without wanting to provide details, the story really needs a second source.
...The source was considering dropping his demand for anonymity. Thus likely moving the story forward. (He wasn't considering going forward with the Politico, by the way: but with the other, more important organization.)
And now, today? After witnessing Politico, among others, savage Joe Wurtzelbacher?
The Politico has this story. They've had it for a while. They don't want to run it with the guy's anonymity kept intact.
Gee, I wonder why he wanted to keep that?
They're willing to endlessly vet anyone who even asks Barack Obama a question, but not Barack Obama himself.
I can pretty much understand the media's reluctance to allow anonymity -- except for the fact that the media so gleefully engages in the witness intimidation that prompts the request for anonymity in the first place.
As of now, the story appears dead.
...They know what this guy fears -- because they just participated in it.
Any dink of a sub-bureaucrat who could whistle-blow against the Bush Administration would have his story told -- with anonymity.
But it's different for The One.
The Obama campaign has done this before. In other words, "Ve Haf Vays of Making You Not Talk."
And you wonder why the press is so mistrusted and despised? It began with Watergate, which made the press drunk with power. Ever since then, they've abused their public trust as advocates of a Leftist political agenda, instead of an impartial observer.
The day any individual is intimidated for legitimately questioning (not violently agitating against) someone who seeks their trust as a public servant is the sad day that the flame of Liberty is extinguished by a cold wind of tyranny.
I'm sure there aren't any Joe the Plumbers who can afford to live in Biden's neighborhood, just like I'm sure there aren't any Home Depots in his neighborhood either.
UPDATE: Barack (You can't say his middle name is Hussein) Obama is making fun of Joe the Plumber as well.
A word of warning to the Obama Campaign, Democrats and liberals. Joe the Plumber is someone working men and women and small business owners (or those who want to be) can identify with. Attack him and you're attacking the middle-class.
You know, the same people who cling to guns and religion out of bitterness.
And you still want our vote?
I'd be willing to be McCain's stock among conservatives went through the roof last night, as the Arizona Senator did something he's rarely done; stood up for the base. He told Obama he wasn't going to stand for his audience being attacked for the comments of some reported (and possibly made up?) by the media.
Figuring into the debate also was a plumber from Ohio, Joe Wurzelbacher, who confronted Obama about his policy of raising taxes and was told by The One that he "wanted to spread the wealth around."
John McCain appears to have heard Joe the Plumber, while Obama is listening to multimillionaire Warren Buffett.
The Toledo Blade interviewed Joe the Plumber after the debate:
A great line from McCain was in response to Obama's constant blaming of everything on President Bush and that a McCain Presidency would be a third term for Bush.
“Senator Obama, I am not President Bush, if you wanted to run against President Bush you should have run four years ago.

The Obama campaign issued a set of debate 'talking points' to media on Wednesday morning, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal. Press Secretary Sean Smith issued the directive in an email from Pennsylvania, 12 hours before the debate.
The memo oddly mirrors much of the main press analysis and theme of the current campaign:
-------- Original Message --------
Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2008 09:37:27 -0500
From: Sean Smith [email@example.com]
To: Sean Smith [firstname.lastname@example.org]
* This is John McCain's last chance to turn this race around and somehow convince the American people that his erratic response to this economic crisis doesn't disqualify him from being President.
* Just this weekend the weekend, John McCain vowed to "whip Obama's you-know-what" at the debate, and he's indicated that he'll be bringing up Bill Ayers to try to distract voters.
* So we know that Senator McCain will come ready to attack Barack Obama and bring his dishonorable campaign tactics to the debate stage. Obama continues to lead on the economic crisis with a rescue plan for Main Street.
* Over the course of the campaign, Barack Obama has laid out a set of policies that will grow our middle class and strengthen our economy.
* But he knows we face an immediate economic emergency that requires urgent action - on top of the plans he's already laid out - to help workers and families and communities struggling right now.
* That's why Barack Obama is introducing a comprehensive four-part Rescue Plan for the Middle Class - to immediately to stabilize our financial system, provide relief to families and communities, and help struggling homeowners.
* This is a plan that can and should be implemented immediately.
* Obama has shown steady leadership during this crisis and offered concrete solutions to move the country forward - and his Rescue Plan for the Middle Class builds on the plans to strengthen the economy and rebuild the middle class that he's laid out over the course of this campaign.
* Already in this campaign, he's unveiled plans to give 95 percent of workers and their families a tax cut, eliminate income taxes for seniors making under $50,000, bring down the cost of health care for families and businesses; and create millions of new jobs by investing in the renewable energy sources.
* John McCain has been erratic and unsteady since this crisis began - staggering from position to position and trying to change the subject away from the economy by launching false character attacks.
Is there any more question about whose side the media is actually on in this election?
Democrat's Culture of Corruption--Tim Mahoney's Mistress Paid Hush Money, Biden Routs Campaign Cash to Family, Pelosi Ties To FARC
Tim Mahoney, who won the seat formerly held by disgraced Congressman Mark Foley, has his own sex scandal, a mistress whom he fired and allegedly paid off to the tune of $121,000. The FBI is investigating.
Here's a tape of a phone call between Mahoney and his mistress, in which he fired her.
Speaking of money, Joe "Plugs" Biden is alleged to have funnelled campaign money to family members and their firms, according to the Washington Times.
And, "Do Nothing" Nancy is not immune. Evidence at Newsbusters.org details a Columbian associate of San Francisco's Nine Percent treat with ties to FARC terrorists in Columbia and Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez.
A Colombian associate of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is once again linked to FARC terrorists and Marxist Dictator Hugo Chavez with the revelation of damning new messages concerning Colombian Senator Piedad Córdoba that are currently being investigated by Colombian military officials. Once again we have a powerful American politician, this one the Speaker of the House of Representatives, linked to those attempting to institute Marxist regimes to our South. Why does the U.S. media steadily ignore the ties Speaker Pelosi has to Charvez and the terrorist group FARC through her association with Senator Córdoba? Isn't it awfully big news that the Speaker of the House supports a foreigner that wishes to give more power to one of our biggest enemies in this hemisphere and to further the efforts of a decades old terror outfit?Of course, if these were all Republicans, the media would be repeating these stories every five minutes. But to actively report on this Democrat corruption would get in the way of the MSM's job, hypnotising more Americans to vote for more Democrats.

Jackson, who in 1984 referred to New York as "Hymietown" and Jews as "Hymies," said the following in France, according to the New York Post.
He promised "fundamental changes" in US foreign policy - saying America must "heal wounds" it has caused to other nations, revive its alliances and apologize for the "arrogance of the Bush administration."
The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end.
Jackson believes that, although "Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades" remain strong, they'll lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.
"Obama is about change," Jackson told me in a wide-ranging conversation. "And the change that Obama promises is not limited to what we do in America itself. It is a change of the way America looks at the world and its place in it."
Everyone knows the word "Zionist" is code word for "Jews." Keep in mind too that an Obama adviser resigned earlier this year over ties to Hamas. His racist former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, also used his pulpit to foist anti-Israel viewpoints.
Is this what Obama means by "Change?"
Is it any wonder that the man in question, William C. Ibershof, lives in the most far-Left county in America, Marin County (in the liberal town of Mill Valley, to be exact), California and gave $200 to the Obama campaign?
According to the Houston Chronicle:
"It seemed manifestly unfair to tar him with this association," Ibershof said. "Senator Obama had known Ayers during a period he was named Citizen of the Year in Chicago, not when he was committing those terrorist acts." So Ibershof wrote a letter to The New York Times, saying he was "amazed and outraged" that Obama was being linked to Ayers' terrorist activities, which occurred when "Mr. Obama, was, as he has noted, just a child."
Ibershof, 73, a registered Democrat, has donated about $200 to Obama's presidential campaign, but he said nobody put him up to his protest. "I came to this gradually but surely watching the campaign," Ibershof said. "It just didn't make any sense to me."
About Ayers, Ibershof said he believes people deserve a chance to redeem themselves, "a human reaction anyone would have."
Ibershof's words make it sound like Ayers is David Horowitz, a former radical who redeemed himself since the 1960s (though Horowitz never planned acts of terrorism and has renounced his far-Leftist past. He's a leading voice in exposing the radicalism in the universities, media and so-called "anti-war" movement). Here's the problem, Ayers never redeemed himself. It is well publicized that Ayers has "no regrets" for his deadly acts of violence as a Weather Underground terrorist and he wished he'd done more. He travels around the country denouncing capitalism and the government of the United States, still agitating for communist revolution today inside a college classroom.
I find it funny that Ibershof is also a registered Democrat and Obama donor. Marin County has many Democrat and anti-American activists. Why should we to dismiss any possibility that the Obama Campaign or Democrat Party asked him to write this letter and make this scumbag Ayers seem clean as a whistle?
Ibershof must not have been a good prosecutor to begin with. According to Wikipedia, the case against Ayers and the Weathermen:
...ended up being dismissed because of illegal activities by the FBI, including wiretaps, break-ins and mail interceptions. The lead federal prosecutor on the case, William C. Ibershof, claims that Mark Felt and Attorney General John N. Mitchell initiated these illegal activities that tainted the investigation.
Sounds like a case of blaming others for your own failure.
Ibershof is wrong. The link between Ayers and Obama matters, because it speaks to the character of someone who would associate with a Marxist radical who is not sorry for committing acts of terrorism in attempting to overthrow the government.
And those aren't the only ties Obama has with such extremists.

William Ayers, a one-time leader of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist group that in the 1970s took credit for bombing the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, became the founder of the Small Schools Workshop at the University of Illinois-Chicago in 1992 and was the group’s co-director through 2002.
During those years, the Smalls Schools Workshop received at least $800,000 from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge--an organization that Ayers also helped found and that Barack Obama chaired starting in 1995. Ayers’s group, promoting public schools with themes such as peace studies, multiculturalism and environmentalism, was one of several liberal organizations that tapped into the Annenberg dollars. Others included a left-leaning legal group and an organization with a significant focus on voter registration. The organization gave out a total of $49.2 million over five years as a means of leveraging matching grants from public and private sources for education initiatives.
...The “small schools” concept promoted by Ayers with the help of the CAC grants focuses on public schools that usually have no more than 500 students. In Chicago, some of these schools conformed to Ayers’ leftist political vision. According to a directory published by the Chicago public schools in 2004, the small schools in the city included:
The Peace School, which “integrates topics of peace across the curriculum. Methods include combining literature and social studies units and studying peace holidays, peace organizations and peacemakers throughout the global community(M.I.M. note: Was "Advanced Bombmaking 101" a featured class at the so-called "Peace School?").”
The Global Village school, which “has a diverse student population with a curriculum focused on high academic standards and global citizenship for students.”
The Al Raby School, named for a former civil rights leader and environmentalist, which has a “focus on community and the environment” and “intends to graduate citizens who are equipped to tackle social justice and environmental issues.”
Meanwhile, the Cesar E. Chavez Multicultural High School, named for the famous labor leader, is “designed to include experiential learning excursions and internships."
...Meanwhile, in 1998, Ayers’s brother, John Ayers, was head of an organization called Leadership for Quality Education, a charter-school and small-school advocacy group. That year, CAC gave Leadership for Quality Education an $85,000 grant. Leadership for Quality Education says its four main goals are accountability, charter schools, small schools, and principal training.
Another group called Grassroots School Improvement received $350,000 from
CAC between 1998-2002. This group was operated by the Association of Community
Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. ACORN has been heavily involved in voter registration drives and get-out-the-vote efforts.
In 1995, Obama represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois over enforcement of federal law involving voter registration issues for low-income people, according to the Associated Press.
Also, this year, the Obama presidential campaign paid $800,000 to an ACORN subsidiary, called Citizen Service, Inc., to operate “get out the vote” efforts, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
In 1998, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge gave $65,000 to ACORN’s Grassroots School Improvement project. In 1999, CAC gave the Grassroots School Improvement project $135,000. In 2000, CAC gave Grassroots School Improvement project $100,000. And in 2001, CAC gave the Grassroots School Improvement $50,000.
