Edward Said and Obama: Shades of Jeremiah Wright

Obama With Edward Said Probably Discussing Israel

Barack Obama and Bill Ayers, as directors of the Woods Fund, supported the anti-Israeli American Arab Action Network, as of 1998. PLO adviser and Keynote speaker Edward Said had the full and complete attention of Michelle and Barak at the gala dinner in Burbank, Illinois, one decade ago today.

Obama: You Have Too Much

You have too much food.

You have too much energy.

You have too many machines.

You have too much fuel.

That’s the reason the rest of the world hates you.

He can change it.

The computer program called “global warming” is the new Constitution of the United States; regardless of how cold it may get.

America wants change. And change is less food, less energy, fewer machines, and less fuel, to Obama.

When you live in a mud hut like Obama’s grandmother in Kenya, the change will be complete. Americans will finally be acceptable to the World, according to Michelle and Barack.

H/T: Global Shamming

Obama camp spies endgame in Oregon

. . . Pitching his message to Oregon’s environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to “lead by example” on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.

“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added. . . .

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.

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.
