Obama's Past

This is interesting, and really ought to catch the attention of our older cop readers and retirees across the country:
  • In 1995, State Senator Alice Palmer introduced her chosen successor, Barack Obama, to a few of the district’s influential liberals at the home of two well known figures on the local left: William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

    While Ayers and Dohrn may be thought of in Hyde Park as local activists, they’re better known nationally as two of the most notorious — and unrepentant — figures from the violent fringe of the 1960s anti-war movement.

    Now, as Obama runs for president, what two guests recall as an unremarkable gathering on the road to a minor elected office stands as a symbol of how swiftly he has risen from a man in the Hyde Park left to one closing in fast on the Democratic nomination for president.
Now, we know we're going to get our regular leftist trolls saying this means nothing, it was a one time meeting, it's a right wing smear job, yadda yadda yadda. But we seem to recall a bunch of people making hay out of that photo of Rumsfeld with Saddam. And a bunch more screaming about Bush missing National Guard time, even though it has been proven time and again that he met all commitments. Or the Bush DUI and cocaine stories that always pop up wherever liberals gather.

Your past forms your future. And it is interesting that two known unrepentant Weathermen bombers living in Hyde Park met and moved in the same circles Obama when he was still a little known Illinois politico.

We're sure we have some readers who served during the "Days of Rage" who can enlighten our younger brethren as to what the Weathermen stood for and who they bombed. We'll give you a hint - polic- offic-rs. (Vanna? I'd like to buy a vowel)

SCC,
Conduct more reserch and you will see how interconnected all of these people really are. Take a close look at Hillary Clinton's college days and her formative years.

Considering John McCain's captivity for 5 years in the Hanoi Hilton and his valor in combat it is very strange how he joined up with these people.

The USA is in great peril and everyone is asleep.

Do you really think anything will come of this story? I have the media in my back pocket. They call me a rock star. To them, I can do no wrong. The press will just give lip service to the fact that I met with murderers in order to advance my political position.

When the jihad is complete, the press and the liberals will be the first ones to feel Allah's wrath.

William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are still associated with Obama. They recently attended the wedding reception of Rashid Khalidi's daughter (and gave a joint toast). Michelle Obama was present as well. Barack was invited but unable to attend due to travel.

Nazi war criminals get hunted down with all the intensity and fervor deserved; likewise, the Wiseguys; domestic terrorists, who built bombs in Greenwich Village with intent to murder soldiers and active complicity in more than 25 bombings, as well as the murder of two NY State Police Officers and a Brinks Guard, enjoy academic coccooning in Hyde Park and being feted by tweedy goofballs.

These cockroaches need a great deal of light shined on them - Bernadine Dohrn and her old man Billy Ayers.

BTW- I recall that the 69th Street Loafers kicked the collective shit out of Billy and his Brownshirts when they tried to 'organize' the young Italian American scapegraces - who happened to have older brothers serving in Vietnam.

-SCC

You rang?

No SCC, it means nothing because...well it means nothing. So he's met with people who opposed US aggression in Vietnam. That only puts him in the company of millions around the world. Yes, the Weathermen's actions were unconscionable and counter-productive to the goals of the anti-war movement and many have repented. Not for opposing the war of course but for the tactics they chose in pursuit of that cause. Elementary logic and morality makes no distinction between the relative handful of innocents killed by the Weathermen and the millions slaughtered by the US in Indochina. Wrong is wrong.

"But we seem to recall a bunch of people making hay out of that photo of Rumsfeld with Saddam"
-SCC

That would be because there was plenty of hay to be made of a moment drenched in hypocrisy. At the time Rummy had been sent to Iraq as Reagan's emissary to assure Saddam of America's support in his savage war of aggression upon Iran. Our services included providing Saddam's regime with diplomatic, ecomomic, and military suppport for its ongoing crimes in the following ways:

(1) utilizing the US veto in the UN to block resolutions condemning Iraq's blatent violation of the UN Charter;

(2) lifting US sanctions on Iraq which, at the time, forbade the transfer of techniological and material support for nations identified as sponsors of terror;

(3) providing said techniological and material support (the purpose of Rummy's visit) to a nation in active violation of the UN Charter. This support was decisive in turning the tide of the Iran-Iraq war in Saddam's favor.

"And a bunch more screaming about Bush missing National Guard time, even though it has been proven time and again that he met all commitments"
-SCC

Really? You'd think a gung-ho guy like the Decider would've been chomping at the bit to join up with a squadron headed over there to bomb third-world peasants. I mean it wasn't hard since, as I recall, fighter pilots were much in demand at the time. Oh well, perhaps, like his vice-president, he had "other priorities" to consider.

Again I remain fascinated whenever the Right attempts to paint the Barockstar as a Leftist. This is the man who supports the "surge" in Iraq, advocates attacking Pakistan, and considers a US nuclear attack on Iran to be a "viable option" that should "remain on the table" in future dealings with yet another nation that poses not threat to us.

I realy don't think Obame is going to win the general election. And to answer a previous question, NO Obama cannot be trusted nor can Hillary, but we all knew that. What we have to watch out for is the empty headed Oprah girls and boys who can be lead around by the nose so easily. These people are dangerously stupid. After November we hopefully will see the last of DUMB (HILLARY) AND DUMBER (B. Hussein O.)

SCC, you're so refreshingly skeptical and sarcastic, except when it comes to right-wing politics. Bush gets a pass with you, anyone who wants a gun gets one? Bush is a guy, like most of his pro-war administration, who famously avoided combat (maybe drug use rendered him 4F), and the massive availability of weapons to our citizenry that you endorse will surely make life more difficult and dangerous for law enforcement. But you still buy the right-wing agenda hook, line and sinker. Wow.

My sister married a guy who went to Harvard law school. I don't use my community college associates degree to take him on in scrabble, but he's a really good guy. He graduated in 1991 with Obama and they were both on the Harvard Law Review together there. He said Obama is such a far left radical it's scary. He said the guy is not just a left wing liberal, he's a bonafided radical who's ideas actually frieghtened many of the other students on the law review. My brother in law is not someone who talks crap. He's a straight laced, low key guy and says Obama is a 1960's era radical at heart.

He's got to put a muzzle on that wifey of his.

She introduced him as her "baby's daddy" when he was elected senator.

She said on 60 Minutes that a black man in America can get shot going to the gas station.

She was never proud of her country until now. Spin it all you want, she said what she felt.

That wasn't Coldtype, el Cubano. Castro succeeded because Fulgencio Bautista was on the payroll of the mob. The corrupt government of Cuba,supported by the U.S. treated the Cuban people horribly. Meyer Lansky and the Guys turned a nation,Cuba, into their own fiefdom. The Cuban people wanted change. All revolutions have murder and mayhem.

If you actually read Revelations, the Apocalypse precedes the Rapture.

So, if you're a believer, you should be welcoming the Anti-Christ and the Apocalypse, as the Rapture won't be far behind.

You do want Christ to return, don't you?

You do welcome the Rapture, don't you?

You do understand that Christ suffered and died for your sins and not to permit you to avoid physical death, don't you?

You do comprehend that the Kingdom of God isn't the same as the 'road to riches' promised by the many false prophets touting themselves as followers of Jesus, don't you?

You are one of the meek, the humble, the selfless, the kind, the generous, the honest and the fearless, the pure of heart, full of love of God, of Christ and of every aspect of God's Perfect Creation, aren't you?

And you do realize that 'satan', 'the devil', 'the anti-christ' or whatever name you wish to call evil, has no power over your soul, don't you?

That only you have the power to decide what you value most?

Fear not......
