Obama Hosts Radical Islam On Campaign Website

This article  should read “A page for Muslim supporters of Sen. Barack Obama hosted on Obama’s presidential campaign Web site promotes events sponsored by radical Islamic groups”.  Because that is what they are!   Absolutely not “controversial.”  There is, and can be no, controversy.

 A more honest characterization  of Obama’s Campaign of Terror Website reveals this:

Muslim Americans for Obama ’08, found on Obama’s main campaign site, allows users to create their own page through a “My Obama” option. The Muslim Americans for Obama page also links to a Web site that features lectures by people who have expressed radical Islamic views in the past.

One of the more controversial lecturers on the site is the Islamic preacher Yusuf Al Qaradawi, who has advocated suicide bombings.

“Allah Almighty is just; through his infinite wisdom he has given the weak a weapon the strong do not have and that is their ability to turn their bodies into bombs as Palestinians do,” the BBC quoted him as saying.

The “Sounds of Islam” site also includes lectures by Abdul Rahman Al Sudais, the chief cleric of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, who has used inflammatory rhetoric against people of different faiths.

The BBC quoted him as saying, “The worst … of the enemies of Islam are those … whom he … made monkeys and pigs, the aggressive Jews and oppressive Zionists and those that follow them: the callers of the trinity and the cross worshippers … those influenced by the rottenness of their ideas, and the poison of their cultures the followers of secularism …. How can we talk sweetly when the Hindus and the idol worshippers indulge in their overwhelming hatred against our brothers.”

Obama gives our enemy, who kills Americans, Hindus, or Buddhists en masse and without hesitation or even a second thought, a prominent platform for their hatred. How is it possible that Americans could be so deluded as to consider Obama capable of defending them?   Obama exhibits an arrogant disregard, at best,  for the lives of all Americans in his website.   What does “change” really mean, to Obama?

Maria Warren on Baiting Commies

From Politico:

“When I first met Barack Obama, he was giving a standard, innocuous little talk in the living room of those two legends-in-their-own-minds, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,” Warren wrote on her blog in 2005. “They were launching him — introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread.”

Contacted by e-mail, Warren declined to describe the meeting further and later blogged of her concern that Republicans would use accounts of the event for “left-baiting.”

 And also:

“I can remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill Ayers’ house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the senate and running for Congress,” said Dr. Quentin Young, a prominent Chicago physician and advocate for single-payer health care, of the informal gathering at the home of Ayers and his wife, Dohrn. “[Palmer] identified [Obama] as her successor.”

Obama and Palmer “were both there,” he said.!)

Obama and Mengaji in Indonesia

According to source Tine Hahiyary, who was a teacher and principal at the Besuki Primary School, young Barry Soetoro (Barack Obama) was quite religious, and actively took part in mengaji lessons there.  This is in rather stark contrast to Obama’s representations; he claims to have been playing, instead of praying.   The precise definition of mengaji is interesting.   In Indonesian and Malay society, the word mengaji means learning to recite the Quran rigorously in its native language, Arabic.

Lao in “Obama and the Inconvenient Truth”

To put it quite simply, “mengaji classes” are not something that a non practicing or so-called moderate Muslim family would ever send their child to. To put this is perhaps a Christian context, this is something above and beyond simply enrolling your child in Sunday school classes.
The fact that Obama had attended mengaji classes is well known in Indonesia and has left many there wondering just when Obama is going to come out of the closet.  As I’ve stated before, the evidence seems to quite clearly show that both Ann Dunham and her husband Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo were in act devout Muslims themselves and they raised their son as such.
In a recent article entitled “Confirmed: Barack Obama practised Islam”, Daniel Pipes comes to the conclusion that Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his step-father in a mosque.” and “that for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father.” Needless to say, I will respectfully differ with Daniel Pipes conclusion. So will most Indonesians.

Now Where Did Michelle Obama Get That Idea?

Michelle Truther

For the FIRST TIME IN HER ADULT LIFE, Michelle Obama, the wife of a U.S. Senator, is FINALLY proud of the U.S.

And what, may we ask, was this prospective First Lady proud of, previously?

In light of Obama’s Marxist, anti-Western family in Kenya, we should not be surprised at the answer.

Whatever she was proud of, it was NOT the United States.   Her husband refuses to wear a flag pin on his lapel, and he refuses  to place his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.   What is Barack Obama proud of?  Why, it cannot be the United States, either.

Obama Defends Wife on Matter of Pride

 BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) – Democratic Sen. Barack Obama sought Tuesday to clarify his wife’s statement that she is proud of the U.S. “for the first time in my adult life.” He said her newfound pride is about the political system and was not meant to disparage her country. He commented after Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, made a veiled reference to Michelle Obama’s recent remarks.Cindy McCain told a Wisconsin rally on Tuesday: “I’m proud of my country, I don’t know about you, if you heard those words earlier.”Barack Obama, interviewed on WOAI radio in San Antonio, Texas, expressed frustration that his wife’s comments became political fodder.“Statements like this are made and people try to take it out of context and make a great big deal out of it, and that isn’t at all what she meant,” Obama said.

“What she meant was, this is the first time that she’s been proud of the politics of America,” he said. “Because she’s pretty cynical about the political process, and with good reason, and she’s not alone. But she has seen large numbers of people get involved in the process, and she’s encouraged.”

Obama’s Ties to Left Come Under Scrutiny

By RUSSELL BERMAN
Staff Reporter of the Sun
February 19, 2008

 WASHINGTON — Senator Obama‘s ties to a former leader of the violent left-wing activist group the Weather Underground are drawing new scrutiny as he battles Senator Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.As an Illinois state senator in 2001, Mr. Obama accepted a $200 contribution from William Ayers, a founding member of the group that bombed the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon during the 1970s.

Mr. Ayers wrote a memoir, “Fugitive Days,” published in 2001, and on the day of the September 11 terrorist attacks, he was quoted by the New York Times as saying: “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”

He and Mr. Obama served together on the nine-member board of the Woods Fund, a Chicago nonprofit, for three years beginning in 1999, and they have also appeared jointly on two academic panels, one in 1997 and another in 2001. Mr. Ayers, who was never convicted in the Weather Underground bombings, is now a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The Ayers link, reported on Friday by Bloomberg News, has surfaced in recent days as Mr. Obama tries to add to his lead in the Democratic primary fight. He faces Mrs. Clinton today in a primary in Wisconsin and caucuses in Hawaii, after which they will prepare for critical elections in delegate-rich Ohio and Texas on March 4.

Lincoln Bedroom Loot Continues to Flow for Clinton

Hey, campaigning from the White House is illegal, isn’t it?

Not if your name is Clinton!  Hillary continues to rake in the loot from Clinton scam number Lincoln.

(Of course, if your name is Gore, it’s OK too).

Like Norman Hsu, Clinton’s Lincoln Bedroom guests, 49 of them, have promised to bundle up $100K each. 

Hillary’s  plans for matching funds from Clinton pardons are also progressing well.

$5 Million is just Clinton mine-salting.

Clinton Crime Wave Gathering Strength

Hillary still in bed with ’96 scandal

By Jerry Seper
February 8, 2008

Nearly one in five “HillRaisers,” the elite big-money fundraisers for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign, have ties to the 1990s fundraising scandal that tarnished her husband’s presidency by offering Democratic donors sleepovers in the Lincoln Bedroom and other perks inside the White House.

Forty-nine of the Clintons’ Lincoln Bedroom guests are among the 250 HillRaisers listed on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign Web page, who have pledged to gather, or “bundle,” at least $100,000 in donations. Some have promised to raise $1 million or more for the 2008 campaign, the most costly in U.S. history.

Some of the HillRaisers are longtime friends who have given millions to the Clintons over the years, including Washington socialite Beth Dozoretz, who played a key role in the controversial, last-minute 2000 pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich.

A Lincoln Bedroom visitor, Mrs. Dozoretz, raised $2 million for Mr. Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, $1 million for the Clinton presidential library and hosted a “rally-around-the-president party” that raised $1 million for Mr. Clinton’s legal defense in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Mrs. Dozoretz dismissed concerns about the overnight visits — raised by Mrs. Clinton’s Democratic primary rivals, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, and former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina — saying the Clintons had simply opened up the White House to friends.

“It is an experience that can be extraordinary, and Bill and Hillary Clinton sought to share it with a great number of people,” she told The Washington Times. “They believed the White House was the people’s house, and they shared it with as many people and in as many ways as possible.

“Having friends stay at the White House was in no way a quid pro quo for those who had contributed. No way,” she said.

So far in the 2008 campaign, Mrs. Dozoretz has given $20,000 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), $2,300 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, $12,650 to other Democrats and $4,200 to Mrs. Clinton, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Associate Rezko Inaugurates Obama Crime Wave

Obama Associate Rezko 

 TimesOnLine Article

An undeclared $3.5 million (£1.8 million) payment from a corrupt Iraqi-British businessman has landed Barack Obama’s former fundraiser behind bars.

The payment, disclosed in court papers, is the first time that Mr Obama’s long-serving bagman Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a Syrian immigrant to the United States, has been linked to Nadhmi Auchi, the Iraqi-born billionaire who is one of Britain’s richest men. The relationship is a potential embarrassment for Mr Obama, who has made his opposition to the Iraq war a central plank of his campaign.  

Court papers describe Mr Rezko as a close friend of Mr Auchi. The two are involved in a large Chicago land development together.

The Times has, however, discovered state documents in Illinois recording that Fintrade Services, a Panamanian company, lent money to Mr Obama’s fundraiser in May 2005.

Fintrade’s directors include Ibtisam Auchi, the name of Mr Auchi’s wife. Mr Auchi’s spokespeople declined to respond to a question about whether he was linked to this business.

Mr Rezko, to be tried for corruption this month, had his bail revoked on Monday after he disobeyed a court’s instructions to keep it informed of changes to his finances. Prosecutors feared that he could try to flee abroad.

The property developer has been condemned by Hillary Clinton as a “slum landlord”.

According to prosecution documents Mr Rezko tried to persuade unnamed Illinois officials to help Mr Auchi to get a US visa after he was convicted of fraud in France. Mr Obama’s aides deny that he was approached.

Mr Rezko has been indicted for pressuring companies seeking state business for kickbacks and campaign contributions, although none for Mr Obama. He was granted bail in October 2006. He told a judge that he had no access to overseas money. But in April 2007 Mr Auchi’s business, General Mediterranean Holding (GMH), wired $3.5 million to Mr Rezko from a bank account in Beirut via a law firm.

The Chicago businessman has already been an embarrassment to Mr Obama’s campaign. The presidential challenger has tried to dampen criticism by paying $150,000 to charity to make up for donations from Mr Rezko. The Illinois senator has said that he made a “bone-headed mistake” to get involved in a property deal with Mr Rezko at a time when he was known to be under investigation.

Mr Auchi has attracted attention at Westminster because of his closeness to politicians and the Establishment. He says that his brother was executed by Saddam Hussein’s regime.

His business partners in Britain have included Lord Steel of Aikwood, the former Liberal leader, and Keith Vaz, the Labour MP and Home Affairs Committee chairman.

On the 20th anniversary of his business in 1999, Mr Auchi received a greeting card signed by 130 politicians, including Tony Blair, William Hague and Charles Kennedy, who were then leaders of their respective parties.

Norman Lamb, the Liberal Democrat MP, went on to table parliamentary questions asking why the Blair Government appeared slow to respond to a French extradition request.

Mr Lamb said last night: “It’s a matter of public interest to understand why the payments were made. This deserves thorough investigation.”

Mr Auchi founded GMH in 1979, a year before he left Iraq. He says that he did business with his native country when it was considered a friend of the West but ceased to trade with Saddam’s regime once sanctions were imposed after the invasion of Kuwait.

US prosecution documents recall Mr Auchi’s suspended jail sentence and €2 million fine for corruption in France five years ago.

Defence lawyers said that Mr Auchi lent the $3.5 million for legal and family expenses. Most of the money had gone directly to law firms and there had been no attempt to flee. “While the Government attempts to besmirch Mr Auchi’s character,” they said, “he is one of Britain’s wealthiest men, has been a guest at the White House and met with two of the last three presidents, was Co-Chair of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, is President of the

Anglo-Arab Organisation, and has received numerous awards and honorary positions from heads of state, including Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, and King Abdullah II of Jordan.”

Mr Auchi’s lawyers added: “Mr Auchi flatly and categorically denies any wrongdoing in relation to the matters that led to his conviction in France and he is pursuing an appeal against it.” Mr Auchi is also suing the oil company Elf in France for dragging him unwittingly into the scandal.
