St. Barack a dirty politician? With that halo around his head??

Thanks to Taylor Marsh, we now have this...NOT that any of it comes as one bit of a surprise to me. I've seen his trickery since day one...too bad the Lobamatized don't. Too bad Keith Olbermann didn't. Too bad Air America and Nova M Radio didn't. Or Kos...or Huffington...I guess it was just a matter of finding the right flavor of Koolaide for them to drink:

CNN Finally Discovers Obama's Dirty Tricks


Obama using right-wing talking points to attack Clinton.

This story is old and I mean very, very old. I wrote about it in January, with the Chicago papers leading on it long before I discovered. Now, all of a sudden, Anderson Cooper has evidently decided to cover it like it's news. Typical mainstream media, the last to know, the first to jump on it after it's old news. But it doesn't surprise me that Alice Palmer doesn't want to be part of CNN's story. I couldn't get her to talk either.

... The move denied each of them, including incumbent Alice Palmer, a longtime Chicago activist, a place on the ballot. It cleared the way for Obama to run unopposed on the Democratic ticket in a heavily Democrat district.

"That was Chicago politics," said John Kass, a veteran Chicago Tribune columnist. "Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters had just one choice." ...

Obama played hardball in first Chicago campaign

Resuscitating another oldie but goodie, you can also wonder how Ryan's sealed divorce papers suddenly appeared so the press could pour over them. Then, poof! Ryan was out of the race, and Obama is running unopposed until Alan Keyes shows up, only to get beat like a politician who comes out against apple pie. Yeah, that was all just an accident.

That CNN's Anderson Cooper has decided to cover a story the news media should have been on months ago is not courageous, though it may soothe some Clinton supporters. Because Obama's image of "hope" and "change" and "another kind of politics" is anything but what he's been touting.

All this is good to understand as we head towards the finale of the primary season, the Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting on May 31st, as well as finding out what the final delegate count will be and whether the popular vote will sway superdelegates. Those of you who experienced caucuses will understand what the Obama treatment is all about. It's straight out of Chicago politics, baby. Mind you, playing dirty doesn't bother me. It's just not exactly the image Obama hypes. No one should be suckered by the pure pabulum propaganda of Barack Obama. His style of politics is as dirty as it gets. Just ask the Clinton campaign.

Thanks, Bobby Kennedy...

Statement from Robert Kennedy Jr.: Re: Bobby Kennedy Comments

Statement from Robert Kennedy Jr.

Robert Kennedy Jr. issued the following statement this evening:

“It is clear from the context that Hillary was invoking a familiar political circumstance in order to support her decision to stay in the race through June. I have heard her make this reference before, also citing her husband's 1992 race, both of which were hard fought through June. I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense.”

Ya, so, Mainstream Media and shillers alike...just what exactly IS your problem here?

Is it anything worse than Obama donning the robes of academia, pretending and hoping you think he's Ted Kennedy in a keynote address at Wesleyan? At least Hillary's motives were honest...and one more thing...How come Michelle Not Jackie O can get away with HER remarks (you MEANIE America)and can come late to the party/country with her twisted sense of pride that mainstream media covered in barely two news cycles?

The hypocrisy makes me sick. In fact, Obama makes me sick. Another reason my hand will NEVER cast a ballot for him..under ANY circumstances!

And you Dems who attempt to put us on a guilt trip for not voting for the party? Well, let me tell YOU something...if you've paid attention for the last 8 years, you'll understand THERE IS NO PARTY! (That's for "purists" like Mike Malloy) One's as bad as the other...and, in fact, those of you who go along with this charade and do vote for him under the "hold my nose" principle are the REAL hypocrites. " me once," eh? Not me. Oh, SO not me. But you go on ahead and vote for the lie. I won't hold it against you...because I'll be voting my conscience and able to look at myself in the mirror the day after Election Day. And there's no room in it for Barack Obama should I be misguided enough to do so. (don't worry - it'll never happen)

Party unity? What a joke. A very sad and pathetic joke.

You Dems who proclaim loyalty to the party under the sham of Barack Obama are really the ones who need YOUR motives questioned. Sigmund Freud said, "Insanity is repeating the same action over and over again expecting different results." On THAT basis alone, you sanctimonious Dems hold NO moral authority over us. None.

The rest of us who DO care about voting in people to represent us we can be proud of ARE the "new" party though Donna Brazille would much prefer you know that in HER "new" party, the Man need not apply.

So, who are the racists? *wink wink nudge nudge*

Michelle Obama a racist too????

Surely it couldn't be..but thank you for the post, Larry Johnson. Let's see what unfolds:

Will Barack Throw Mama From the Train? [Updated] »

By Larry JohnsongravatarcloseAuthor: Larry Johnson Name: Larry Johnson (see below for Mr. Johnson's impressive credentials)

I now have it from two three sources close to senior Republicans that they have video dynamite–Michelle Obama railing against “whitey” at Jeremiah Wright’s church. Republicans may have a lousy record when it comes to the economy and the management of the war in Iraq, but they are hell on wheels when it comes to opposition research. Someone took the chance and started reviewing the recordings from services at Jeremiah Wright’s United Church of Christ. Holy smoke!! I am told there is a clip that is being held for the fall to drop at the appropriate time. The last thing Barack and Michelle need is a new clip that raises further questions about her judgment and temperament. Here’s what the Republicans are currently using in Tennessee:

When the ugly video tapes about Jeremiah Wright’s racist ravings first broke Barack Obama told us he could no more disown Jeremiah Wright than his own Grandmother. Well, we all know how that turned out. So will Barack stand by Michelle when the tape emerges of her verbally attacking “whitey?” Republicans, who are otherwise gloomy about prospects in November, recognize that this recording will create real problems for Barack and give them a shot at the White House. It is their October surprise.

Does Barack have an obligation to tell the Democrats, super delegates in particular, about this tape? Did Barack and his campaign do their basic homework and identify this tape as a potential problem? And, more importantly, do they have a copy? Probably better to deal with this issue before the convention rather than wait for October. What do you think?

John Edwards - Traitor Extraodinaire

Thanks, Edwards, for finally showing us your true colors...You hid from us when you withdrew without a word to your dedicated supporters.

I'm GLAD you did this today. Because now, I no longer have to have any doubt about where your loyalties lie. I should have known when you did to us what John Kerry did to us...without warning...We trusted you.

Not any more.

Not only any more, but ever again.

You hypocrite.

Go to, Senator. You'll be surprised at just how much corporates own him.

Party unity? Never!

Stay Home, West Virginia Voters...

Haven't you gotten the memo? MSNBC, CNN, Fox, Nova M Radio, Air America and bloggers formerly known as liberal/progressive with few exceptions like MyDD, Talk Left and No Quarter, have ALL told you...your vote does not matter! Not only doesn't it count, but it. does. not. matter. WE will pick the president. You just sit there and listen!

Why should you bother? Isn't it much better to let media, cable news, and talk radio pundits determine who our candidates should be? After all, that's exactly what they've done for you...people who'd previously been "somewhat" dedicated to telling you the truth (and their truth is that Hillary Clinton is Satan...and Barack Obama walks on water). Essentially, they've told you to mind your own business, don't worry about annoying things like facts, let US tell you about "hope" and "change" and don't bother to fill your heads with concerns about a candidate who is a racist (as well as his wife), a liar, an empty suit, a plagiarist, a "Christian" who sleeps through 20 years of sermons, has roots in Chicago's political cesspool, and barely remembers an upstanding citizen like Tony Rezko...not a good omen for one who ultimately carries massive amounts of information as a Decider. Besides, West Virginians, you can't make any good decisions anyway...After Obama's last dazzling debate performance, there was no way he was gonna let you see him flounder and stammer and stutter standing next to that "monster" when she could be easily dispensed with by giving her the finger and shaking her off his shoulders...go look it up on Youtube. Take THAT you bitch!

And if you think YOU'RE special, Kentucky, you can just stay the hell home too. Stop WORRYING ABOUT IT...You've got HOPE to hang your hate (oops..."hat") on. "Change" too because despite all the filth in the past few decades from the most recent power puppets living in our White House, you ain't seen nuttin' yet.

And get this, Hillary supporters. Saint Barack told you you're going to just rally round him once your candidate is dispensed with. Don't you just love it? After watching this witch hunt, you REALLY want to reward them by hopping onto the "race"mobile. Oh, didn't you know? If you don't vote for Obama, you're a wracist - wright?

No...this is one Democrat who will not be rallying round the flag pin, boys. Wanna know why? Sorry to disappoint but it's not because I'm a racist. It's because after THIS perverted stunt they've pulled on us and oh, SO much more, it's very clear to me that there IS no more Democratic Party. Don't believe me? That's fine..go back to sleep. It's the American way after all.

"Party Unity," Obama? SHOVE IT.

Happy Obamamama's Day!

I couldn't have said this better myself. I reallllly wish the words had been mine. Right, Obama? "Words matter?"

With appreciation, thanks to:

Lin Farley, Contributor

Maybe I am not a Democrat, after all. Because, let’s face it, the Democratic Party doesn’t want me– so why should I continue to want them?

I think a lotta women are asking themselves this question along about now.

I mean where in the Democratic National Committee Leadership is there a woman at all. We got Donna Brazile, who hates gays, is more responsive to her race than her sex and backs Obama because she cannot resist the movie in her head called: Triumph of the Race.

And then there is Howard Dean who hates the Clinton’s and is a progressive Democrat who went down in flames electorally; but what the hell–he is Obama’s guy on the Inside.

And then there is WHO? C’mon, all you astute electioneer armchair handicappers; Where is the woman who is in power in leadership in the Democratic National Committee? WHO?


Ok. So we have introduced the idea that just maybe the party of our fathers and their sons has abandoned me and women by the boatload for a good long time. So isn’t supporting this party a sucker play for us?

For women that it is. Because now Mcgovern, Mondale, Kennedy, Kerry, and Hart [Carter too] are working that ole liberal loser thang all over again.

And it ain’t gonna fly any better this time than it has in the past.

I don’t need to be a guy, and I don’t need to possess a college degree to understand that this is a loser strategy. But that’s the problem, isn’t it? The GUYS and their female hangers-on like BoringBoringBoring McCaskill can’t see what is as plain as the nose on your face to every Democrat without a college degree from here to Charleston, West Virginia with stops in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, New York, and California.

We Lose if we go this way. Because the women ain’t coming back. And neither are the White working class.

The seniors will leave as well. And the Latinos.

Finally, anyone who thinks Barack Obama is going to carry the Jewish vote is smoking too much of the hopium. They will not support Obama who wants to negotiate with Hamas and Iran.

So how many times will the liberals insist on running this play? The one that goes, ‘Blacks and Upper Income voters will carry the day’. Because the other party knows that election gambit by heart and they ‘whup ass’ every damn time we go that way.

If we reject the Clinton coalition of voters this year we are committing suicide as a political party.

But Donna Brazile don’t care; she just told me to go f**ck myself, ‘Barack don’t need my kind’.

And I think Obama’s people think me and my kind don’t matter `cause people hate Bush so bad, ain’t nobody gonna vote Repuggie’?

“NO, NO, NO”– to quote a famous preacher. It’s a sucker play; don’t fall for it.

But jeeeze, if there is one thing this primary battle has taught me it is what a good friend just described to me: The Democratic Party could care less about me. They will not find a way to deal with Michigan and Florida so their votes count. They don’t care about the women’s vote in any way comparable to the way the care about the black vote. The Liberal wing of the party has an endless money pot so who cares if all those two-bit suckers for Hillary don’t get on the bandwagon. The liberals are buying super delegates like there is a fire sale on them.

The only thing I can conclude about all this is that money, power and privilege are the keys to the kingdom for a whole lot of Democrats. Lip service is given to the little people–you know, the ones who don’t vote for Barack because they are bitter and too busy going to church and hunting to know any better. But Liberals in the Democratic Party are now so drunk on Anti-Bush wine they think they can slide on into home plate without rounding the bases. That’s why Obama wants to declare himself the winner before all the primaries are finished.

Here is the reality, not the spin. There is only a 130 or so vote difference between the two candidates, and no one has hit the magic number. The nomination doesn’t belong to anyone just yet. So why are so many anointing Barack the Messiah? I’ll tell you why, because we are letting Republican talking heads dictate who our nominee will be.

Hillary–And Only Hillary– can bring in the Clinton coalition of voters. She can beat McCain and she can win this general election. Obama cannot win the general election I don’t care how turned off by Bush the electorate is. Wright is wrapped around Obama’s neck like a smelly mackerel. And the repugs will never let anyone forget it.

I swear after two lost elections and eight years of Bush, I thought the Democrats got it. But if the Democrats are the guys–and a lot of people sure as hell see it that way–we are going to lose, lose, lose.

So Happy Mother’s Day, fellas. And here’s a little kicker for you from Taylor Marsh:

“His name is Will. He is an Obama supporter. He just learned of one of his mother’s dreams. It was an awakening. ‘I spoke to my mother briefly tonight, just small talk, and mentioned the political atmosphere of the last 24 hrs. She just said she loved me, and that she wanted to get off the phone, and gave it to my dad. She is a Hillary supporter, my dad and I are Obama folks. As my dad and I talked, I started to feel really bad about all the negative feelings that have emerged over the last few months. I particularly started to feel seriously guilty towards my mom. Had I just denied my 65 year-old mom the chance to see a woman become president for perhaps the only time in her adult life? I don’t think that a woman president is that far off at all, but I certainly wouldn’t go around assuming that, if I had spent the last 65 years watching a parade of men take the chair in the Oval Office, and feel like there is nothing to be done to change that. And along comes Hillary, and the dream is alive, and then it is crushed in this brutal primary we’ve all gone through. I guess for the first time in this election season, I walked for a moment in the other side’s shoes, and I really didn’t like how my side looked. And as much as my Obama activism has meant to me over the last several months, it suddenly didn’t hold a candle to realizing I may have participated in stealing my mother’s dreams away from her. All of a sudden, all I wanted to do was give my mom a female president, and do all it took to make that happen.This is a damn tough time to be a Democrat.’“

Obama Voted Against the War...

Right??? Isn't that the fact he chooses to hang his hat on? I mean, well everyone KNOWS he was against the war...ask them. Ask the numbed and dumbed down Obamabots. They'll dutifully tell you their Messiah voted against the war.

But what they won't tell you is that it's a bold-faced lie.

You wanna know why? And please do go check it out for yourselves.

Obama did NOT vote against the war. He couldn't have. HE WAS NOT A SENATOR WHEN THE VOTES WERE CAST.

I don't suppose knowing that though will lead you to question just WHY he has continued to vote for endless funding of it?

Na. I thought not.

Friday, May 09, 2008

Obama will NEVER get my vote..

Under ANY circumstances.

I cannot believe what Howard Dean has done to this party - or the media - or liberal talk radio - or bloggers we used to trust. And you - the Kool Aide drinkers.

You all wear the blinders the sheeple of 2000 donned.

Well, then you all deserve him. A racist. A liar. A hypocrite. A deceiver extraordinaire...and you don't see it. What you're about to see take center stage is far worse than whatever you thought you were getting in bush. His condescending, passive-aggressive arrogance is something to behold. The kid in the school yard who sets the fire in the woods and then runs away claiming no responsibility for his crime. Who, Obama? Oh, never.

The deification of this man is stunning to watch. Intelligent, formerly rational people behave as though he's their own personal savior...cult of personality...the worshipping of strange gods indeed. He could strut down Pennsylvania Ave naked shooting everything other person and still you scary people would make excuses for him.

I am utterly sickened and disgusted to watch what we've worked so hard for in the last 8 years crumble as though we'd never even been here before.

America is broken beyond repair now. And, so is my heart.

Obama Lies

And glory I'd said in my last entry, "hope" and "hate" are 4 letter words. And so is "Lies."

Here's a little weekend reading for you...IF your stomach is strong.

by Shallow Hal Contributor
(Shallow Hal is the ORIGINAL AUTHOR of the now famous “Barack Obama’s LAUNDRY LIST OF LIES”)


A warning should be issued, right here, and right now. What I am about to tell you could hurt you. It could set you free. It could be told in a way you might not like or respect. It could be all of these things and a few you never wanted to know.

In your Divided House there exists a paper thin weakness, a figure behind a curtain, with feet of clay, living only for the hour because tomorrow may never come. The soft underbelly your Champion harbors in hopeful oblivion exists, I and many others, together, have seen it. There are just too few of us. We know what it fears, for we are ‘The Sword’. It has it’s Achilles Heel, this Body Politic, if one only knows where to look. But to look requires the opening of one’s eyes. And yes, it could be awful. That is why I’ve warned you.

Nothing ever worth knowing is easy and this is no different. I need you to see. I need you to think. I need you to understand where I am coming from. But first you must understand who I am because if you cannot recognize me, there is no point in us going any further. So allow me to introduce myself - my name is Truth.

By definition I am simple. TRUTH: 1. the true or actual state of a matter; 2. conformity with fact or reality; verity: the truth of a statement; 3. a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle; 4. the state or character of being true; 5. an obvious or accepted fact; truism; 6. honesty; integrity; truthfulness; 7. (capitalized first letter) ideal or fundamental reality apart from and transcending perceived experience.

So as you can see, I can be many things but I cannot be controverted. I can weather opinions but am never changed by them. No matter the twisting of the wind or the shade of the glass, the sky is still blue and the grass is still green, and a version of the truth is only true if unchanged.

So this brings me to my portrait, the one I am about to paint. It is mine, and yet others have drawn the same conclusion. It has taken years for this picture to ‘expose’ itself, but just a month and a day, for me to paint the image, that I have discovered was not in my mind alone. But this is not a reproduction; this is not an opinion. After all, I am Truth, am I not? So I must tell you the image is real; it is set. This portrait is more Dorian Gray, knife in canvas, then Dorian Gray, young illusionist, misleading his audience, while hiding from the world his sins behind a curtain. Indeed, this is the Dorian Gray found on the floor, horrible to look upon, but undeniably him.


* * *
CHARGE 1 – “The March on Selma got me born.”

EVIDENCE - Senator Obama was born August 4th, 1961. The march on Selma began March 7th, 1965. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2

COUNTER CLAIM – Senator Obama was talking about the general movement, not specifically about Selma.

REBUTTTAL – Senator Obama was in Selma, Alabama, before a mostly AA crowd at the Brown Chapel AME Church on March 4th, 2007. He clearly stated “because some folks were willing to march across a bridge . . . they (his parents) got together, and Barack Obama, Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama!” Barack Hussein Obama was born on August 4, 1961. The first march on Selma, Alabama occurred on March 7, 1965.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 5 - “President Kennedy rescued my father from Kenyan obscurity and airlifted him to the American Dream.”

EVIDENCE – Senator Obama’s father came in September 1960, while EISENHOWER was President. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2

COUNTER CLAIM – But his father did come to the U.S. so what is the big deal?

REBUTTAL – Senator Obama misrepresents historical events. No speech by President John F. Kennedy brought Senator Obama’s father to the U.S. in 1960. John F. Kennedy was not President in 1960, Dwight D. Eisenhower was President. The Senator is attempting to subtly equate himself with J.F.K., subconsciously implying he would be a similar President. Senator Obama, you are no Jack Kennedy.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 19 - “I do not vote ‘Present’ any more than any other IL Representative.”

EVIDENCE – While ‘Present’ votes may not be unusual in Illinois, the number of ‘Present’ votes that Senator Obama placed ARE disproportionate. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, NY Times 12/20/07 by Raymond Hernandez and Christopher Drew

COUNTER CLAIM – ‘Present’ votes are used to block portions of undesirable legislation and is a common tactic in Illinois.

REBUTTAL – The issue at hand is not the purpose of the ‘Present’ votes but rather their frequency. 129 ‘Present’ votes is not a common number for any Representative in the Illinois State House, other than Senator Obama.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 21 - “I barely know William Ayers” – A.K.A. – Abu Zayd

EVIDENCE – Senator Obama announced the start of his Senate campaign from the front steps of William Ayers’ home, in the neighborhood that they share. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3

COUNTER CLAIM – Just because Senator Obama lives in the same neighborhood with Ayers doesn’t prove they knew each other well.

REBUTTAL – William Ayers (or Abu-Zayd), Louis Farrakhan, and Senator Obama all live in the same neighborhood. Ayers is the founder of the Woods Fund, of which Senator Obama was it’s director from 1999 to 2002. Perhaps one might ask oneself; who chooses the director of the Wood Fund? Perhaps its founder? Secondly, if Senator Obama announced his campaign run in Illinois from Ayers’s home, did he not ask Ayers’ permission first? If the Senator did not know Abu-Zayd Ayers well, then how did he come to choose Ayers’ front steps to announce his campaign? Random chance?

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 22 - “I support a 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.”

EVIDENCE - We enter into evidence a few of Senator Obama’s quotes and votes on gun control: “Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions.” (Jul 1998), “Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers.” (Jul 2005). SOURCE 1, Source 2: The Improbable Quest, by John K. Wilson, p.148 Oct 30, 2007, Source 3: 1998 IL State Legislative National Political Awareness Test Jul 2, 1998, Reference: Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act; Bill S 397 ; vote number 2005-219 on Jul 29, 2005

COUNTER CLAIM – Senator Obama just wants to prevent criminals for finding and using guns.

REBUTTAL – Senator Obama’s policy on guns seems to change specifically in regards to the audience he is addressing. There are many quotes from the Senator in which he suggests an all out ban on handguns. Bare in mind that these bans PRIMARILY affect LEGAL gun ownership.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 28 - “I have the solutions to repair our economy.”

EVIDENCE - Senator Obama voted against his own economic proposal package. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2

COUNTER CLAIM - Washington is in a stalemate. Senator Obama has fresh ideas.

REBUTTAL – Senator Obama’s 111 economic proposals were just combined into an amendment to a bill, and the amendment was defeated 97-0. Senator Obama rejected his own proposals; apparently, they were not the solutions or ‘fresh ideas’ he was speaking about.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 30 - “I barely know Tony Rezko. I did about 5 hours of billed work for him.”

EVIDENCE – Senator Obama has known Antoin Rezko for 17 years. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3

COUNTER CLAIM - Senator Obama meets many people. He is a Senator.

REBUTTAL – Antoin Rezko first spoke with Senator Obama in 1990. Senator Obama worked at the Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland Law firm, specializing in legal issues involving land development. It is in this area of law that the Senator came in contact with Rezko and his company, Rezmar Corp. Senator Obama left the law firm for the State Legislature, while one of the firm’s founders, Mr. Allison Davis, left his firm to form a new development company, New Kenwood LLC – with none other than Mr. Antoin Rezko. Once in the State Legislature, and still performing periodic work for his old law firm (now Miner, Barnhill, & Galland), Senator Obama used his elected position to provide legitimacy to his friend’s new venture. He crafted a letter to the legislature that ultimately secured $855,000 in ‘development fees’ for his pals, Rezko and Davis. Mr. Rezko went on to be quite a staunch campaign donor for the Senator, raising at least $250,000 for Senator Obama while in Illinois.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 32 - “I don’t have ‘bundlers’ and I don’t take PAC money.”

EVIDENCE - Senator Obama has 79 bundlers and has collected over $13,000,000 in lobbyist PAC money. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 4

COUNTER CLAIM - Senator Obama has been careful not to compromise himself, “rejecting campaign support from Political Action Committees and lobbyists.”

REBUTTAL – Here is a starter list of Senator Obama’s registered lobbyists:

Timothy Broas $100,000, Frank Clark $200,000, Howard Gutman $200,000, Scott Harris (DC) $200,000, Allan Katz $200,000, William Lake (DC) $50,000, Robert S. Litt $not given, Kenneth Lore (DC) $50,000, Thomas Perrelli $200,000, Thomas Reed $200,000, Paul Roth $50,000, Alan Solomont $100,000, Robert M. Sussman (DC) $50,000, Tom Wheeler (DC) $100,000. $1,700,000 dollars from these registered lobbyists, or four times more than Obama’s officially declared lobbyist sum. To date there are at least 38 such individual lobbyists donating to Senator Obama’s campaign. PS – Having the wives of these individuals write the checks does not alter where the money came from.

* * *

* * *
CHARGE 33 - “I don’t take money from lobbyists.”

EVIDENCE - At least 38 Individuals on Senator Obama’s campaign are or work for lobbyists. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 4

COUNTER CLAIM – Most of the individuals you site are lawyers, not lobbyists.

REBUTTAL – Most of the lawyers that make up this list work for firms that lobby the Government. 31 of them manage registered lobbyists. You may parse the definitions – these lawyers and/or their firms lobby the government and donate to Senator Obama’s campaign. Either way, he takes money from lobbyists.

CHARGE 35 - “I have clean connections, unlike my opponents and most of Washington.”

EVIDENCE - Rezko, William Ayers (Abu-Zayd), Nadmi Auchi, Rashid Khalidi, Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks, Louis Farrakhan. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 4, SOURCE 5, SOURCE 6, SOURCE 7

COUNTER CLAIM - Guilt by association is not fair.

REBUTTAL – Associations one chooses to initiate and/or maintain speaks to one’s character and judgment. For instance, Antoin Rezko – who is currently on trial for Corruption. Senator Obama has received a quarter of a million dollars from this individual, and has had to return it in ever increasing amounts, as the Senator was caught not truthfully disclosing the amount donated. Senator Obama also decided to participate in a real estate deal with Mr. Rezko during a time when he was proven to be under investigation. Despite this, The Senator made a deal to purchase a home, by dividing the property with the Rezko family. The property in question was divided, lot VS. House, because it was out of The Senator’s price range. And so was the down payment. Perhaps this is where Auchi comes in? Only the trial of Rezko can tell us. Continuing, once it was determined that the Senator could not afford the property, $300K was promptly removed from the asking price (in 2005, before mortgage problems drove down home prices). Rezko’s wife stepped in to buy the lot the Senator couldn’t afford, saving him $625,000. Another associate of Senator Obama’s is the founder of the Woods Fund, for which the Senator was its Director for 4 years, William (Abu-Zayd) Ayers. Abu-Zayd, or William Ayers as he was known then, was an American Terrorist who attempted to bomb the Pentagon. Next on our list would be Nadmi Auchi – Iraqi Billionaire swindler who helped himself to money from the Food Or Oil program and may have assisted the Senator is securing the money to put down on his Chicago mansion. Next we have Rashid Khalidi – former PLO spokesman and supporter of terrorism against Israel. Next we have the infamous Jeremiah Wright and James Meeks – rabid racists, anti-American preachers/community leaders, both have an affinity or a direct connection to the Nation of Islam. Speaking of the Nation of Islam, we next have Louis Farrakhan – renowned racist, anti-American, voracious Anti-Semite and homophobe – leader of the Nation of Islam. One would like to ask Senator Obama which of these individuals are the ‘clean’ ones?

CHARGE 38 - “I sponsored dozens of my own bills in one year and passed them in the Illinois State Senate.”

EVIDENCE - State Senator Ricky Hendon ‘appointed’ Obama as sponsor of Hendon’s high-profile legislation. Not one of those Bills was truly sponsored by Senator Obama. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 4

COUNTER CLAIM - But Senator Obama did sponsor and pass the bills.

REBUTTAL – Senator Obama was ‘appointed’ the sponsor of bills originated and crafted by Senator Hendon. Senator Obama attached his signature to the bill, thus conspicuously taking credit for it’s sponsorship and passage. Additionally Emil Jones had to direct Senator Obama to craft certain legislation. It was not spontaneously created by Senator Obama.

CHARGE 39 - “I believe in fairness, not tactics, to win elections.”

EVIDENCE - Senator Obama hired a team of investigators to eliminate Alice Palmer from running against him. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3

COUNTER CLAIM - Some of the signatures for Alice Palmer were forged.

REBUTTAL – 4 of the signatures were found to be forgeries. Senator Obama used investigators and little known political tactics to eliminate his opposition. He then went on to run uncontested.

CHARGE 49 - “I have sponsored and passed plenty of Bills in the U.S. Senate. I have experience.”

EVIDENCE - You have passed 2 BILLs in the U.S. Senate – one for Africa and one that makes lobbyists stand while they eat. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3

COUNTER CLAIM - Senator Obama has sponsored 123 Bills in the US Senate.

REBUTTAL – Senator Obama has one of the worst records for getting bills passed that he has sponsored in the US Senate. That sounds like experience most of us wouldn’t want. The Senator has sponsored and passed 2 Bills in the US Senate - one for the Congo (shock and awe?) and one that makes lobbyists stand when they eat. Impressive work for 4 years on the job.

CHARGE 60 - “I never heard sermons at Trinity like those being played on Youtube and by the mainstream media.”

EVIDENCE - Senator Obama said: “Did I ever hear him (Rev. Wright) make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes.” SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 4, SOURCE 5

COUNTER CLAIM - Senator Obama said he disagreed with what Reverend Wright said, what more do you want him to say?

REBUTTAL – Not only did Senator Obama agree with Rev. Wright, 14 months earlier about having to distance himself from the church, (and Rev. Wright himself), Senator Obama said he had never heard sermons that contained anything like what the mainstream media and Youtube were playing ‘on every station’. 3 days later, in his own speech, he stated ““Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes.” ‘What more do we want him to say?’ We think ‘I Lied.’ would be sufficient.

CHARGE 66 - “My campaign donations are from millions of average people {bitter, typical white people too?}. We are winning in a new way, without corporate influence, or special interests.”

EVIDENCE - The implication is that special interests, corporations, banks, and industry donations are not accepted. Nothing could be further from the truth. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3, SOURCE 4, SOURCE 5

COUNTER CLAIM - Senator Obama has millions of donors who have given less than $100.

REBUTTAL – True, Senator Obama does have many donors that have given less then $100. Senator Obama also allows the false impression that he does not take PAC or lobbyist money, money from Big Oil, Big Banking, Big Industry, or Corporate America.
