The Obama Associates

                                       

We’ve known for sometime now that Obama has made some questionable decisions on who to befriend.

People like Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, and how could we forget the man of the hour, His holiness in hate, the mentor to Barack….Mr. Wright…..now a talk show host in Oregon is bringing up another association that Obama had that should be questioned:

During Obama’s last year on the board of The Woods Fund (2002), he participated in awarding grants, including a $70,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, a Chicago-based group founded by Rashid and Mona Khalidi.

In another suspected quid pro quo arrangement similar to those with Ayers and Rezko, Rashid Khalidi also held a fundraising event in his home for Barack Obama.

In the Middle East, Rashid Khalidi was known as a man to be reckoned with. From 1972 through 1983, Khalidi was the director in Beirut of the official Palestinian press agency, FAFA. His wife worked there as well.

According to sources, when the Khalidi’s left Chicago for Columbia University in New York, Rashid was honored with the Edward Said Chair in Arab Studies at that Ivy League university. Their goodbye party in Chicago included testimonials from Bill Ayers and Barack Obama.

“What other fund raising connections does Obama have? How many times can you look the other way in church and with fund raising situations with more than questionable people?” asked Ms. Roth.

“We all make mistakes in judgment with people and their backgrounds sometimes, but usually we learn and pick better friends and associates. How come Obama seems to have continued hanging around more than questionable characters with anti American backgrounds and some with criminal behaviors? Now one is being indicted, Tony Rezco, who raised a ton of money for Obama,” she said.

“As President, how much would he look the other way when dealing with national security and dangers to our country? How much would he listen passively to terrorist leaders then lecture us on our ugly American status? This kind of change is not what our country needs!” added the popular talk show host, whose show is syndicated by USA Radio Network

Read all about Khalidi here. It’s not pretty.

Yes, its only a fundraising event and taken in that context only it would not be that big of a deal. But you add up the totality of his associations and you have to be a little wary of where this guy is coming from, and in which direction he is heading.

Here is the audio from the radio show:

    Obama has more potentially lethal baggage, than a pack camel headed for a terrorist’s training camp.

    Something tell’s me there is more to come.

    Convicted Domestic terrorists Ayers and Dohrn, formerly of the Weatherman and now Academics – go figure, are coming under some much needed scrutiny.

    obambi is the biggest trick the democratic party has played on the usa !

    i don’t know how this church info got out, but i am so glad it did!

    it scares me to death that he is involved with an organization, church, that seems to be promoting a black on white race war! my info comes from their website, which i understand has been cleaned up.

    and now this, unbelivable!

    all i can say, if you believe in our lord, just pray for our country!

    You are known by your associations. How can we possibly consider BHO as president of the greatest country in the world?

    First off Obama’s church does NOT promote a “black on white race war”… where do you people come up with this baseless crap???

    Is the only thing you can come up against Obama “guilt by association?” You really don’t have much do you?? He will be YOUR next president…

    Sky,

    Too bad your words do not reflect reality. The only “baseless crap” spewed here is yours.

    All I have to do is take Wright’s (or Farikan’s) words and switch “white” and “black”, assign them to a “Chrisitan Identity” cult and you would be leading the charge at the SPLC and ACLU stating white supremicists wanted a “black on white race war”.

    You are a good, predictible, brainwashed sheep. Straight out of Animal Farm.

    “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community. . . . Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.

    The black theologian must reject any conception of God which stifles black self-determination by picturing God as a God of all peoples. Either God is identified with the oppressed to the point that their experience becomes God’s experience, or God is a God of racism…The blackness of God means that God has made the oppressed condition God’s own condition. This is the essence of the Biblical revelation. By electing Israelite slaves as the people of God and by becoming the Oppressed One in Jesus Christ, the human race is made to understand that God is known where human beings experience humiliation and suffering…Liberation is not an afterthought, but the very essence of divine activity.” (A Black Theology of Liberation, pp. 63-64)

    Written by James Cone an influence on Wright.

    Now, do not get me wrong. They are free to preach/worship how they wish (excluding the whole destruction of the white enemy thing but we’ll let that slide. It must be a black thing that I wouldn’t understand). And I know, here comes the “guilt by association thing”, save it. Either Obama sat in the “pew” of this mans church listening to this for 20 years, and since we now understand aural and oral and all of that good stuff, he must have learned this.

    Add to this his questionable friendships with political fixers, domestic terrorists, Marxist parents and I have to question what does a person believe? Smoke/Fire, Duck/Quack ring a bell? With these references on his resume, I doubt many would hire him to sweep the floors in their business, why would they hire him as President?
    That is not the man I want to be OUR President.

    Is the only thing you can come up against Obama “guilt by association?”

    Not the only thing, no. Just click on the “Obama” category. Not all posts have to do with Reverend Wright. But he certainly isn’t an asset to the good senator from Illinois, now, is he?

    And why is it that Oprah had enough judgment sense to sever ties with Wright’s Church? Yet it took media attention for Obama to distance himself, and yet not distance himself completely? So Reverend Wright is correct in saying Obama is saying what he is saying because he is speaking as a politician? Can you translate that one for me? Because that statement on Moyer’s certainly doesn’t help Obama, does it?

    Can you explain to me what is meant by “the black value system” on the Trinity Church website? What if I were to belong to a church that promoted “the white value system”? What about simply, “the Christian value system”? That would make more sense and be less….race-fixated.

    He will be YOUR next president…

    Maybe he will, maybe he won’t. Is that what the tea leaves are telling you, or something? What did your crystal ball predict right before Election night, 2004?

    Obama’s rapid response team wrote that Wright served as Marine; so did Lee Harvey Oswald.

    The Founder of the American Nazi Party, George Lincoln Rockwell was a decorated Navy pilot.

    Wright is wrong.

    Our local BHO true believer uses the term “baseless crap” almost as often as BHO’s campaign uses the term “distraction” to describe anything that paints Obama in a poor light. Certainly everyone likes to play to their strengths, but if you’re going to presume to be the President of the United States, you have to answer the questions of your entire constituency and explain, and your conduct and associations are entirely fair game. BHO and his followers don’t seem to have realized that yet.
    Screeds of “Obama WILL be your next President” have popped up on so many threads that it’s almost like graffiti. Say, I’ve been looking for a complete transcript of Wright’s NAACP on the web, and have yet to find one. I’d rather have text than video; it’s easier to pick up on the details that way. Thanks in advance to who-ever can direct me to it.

    Uh huh, Mach. True enuf. The only thing possibly more annoying that Ron Paul cyber bots and their parroting posts everywhere are the BHO mindless guppies, babbling over and over what their crystal ball has to say about Nov, about Wright, etc etc etc.

    Can’t really quite blame them.. they are just chanting the mantra of His Messiahship. Predictions and empty promises. There is nothing concrete nor substantive to use as persuasion. In one way, it’s more refreshing to tackle the Ron Paul supporters. Most, tho more isolationist in nature and overly libertarian in economics and borders, at least can intelligently discuss the differences of opinions. But Obamabots? Geez, it’s like having to listen to the school bully taunts every 60 seconds. Say nothing, but talk big game.

    I figure time takes care of all. Both cult factions will either get their clock’s cleaned come Nov, or be rewarded with what they want. And they’ll be turning over their DNC cards thereafter, seeing their wallets emptied, the quality of health care with red tape worse than the VA, and our national security eroded.

    Trouble is, the more uninformed drag the rest of us down the toilet with them just so they can learn their lessons.

    Iin the meantime, use the mental eject button. It’s like a fresh breath mint for the eye! Maybe the pests-with-nothing-to-contribute will go to more friendly web digs when they can’t get a rise out of anyone. I’m sure the Daily KOs would love to have them.

    Yawn.

    Obama spends time with academics.

    I can see where that might be a problem for this crowd. Lot of mistrust here for anyone with a touch of education.

    If academia is your criteria for worthy associates, then you can’t have much of a problem with the current President, Arthur. However I’m quite sure that’s not anything to which you shall concede.

    My guess is you’re still very select in what academics you laud… ala they must agree with you. And if they like bombing US assets (Ayers), and beat the legal system by being “guilty as hell” and free… its a few extra stars in your book.

    So what makes you revive an old thread when there are more current Obama rants available?

    ReplyReply
  22. I’ve got more than a “touch” of education and “Arthur” never trusts one word I say, particularly on National Security topics on which we all know art dealers like himself are such experts.

    P.S. He should get more sleep. He’s always yawning.

    Artie… we’re just as bored with your comments dripping as they are with more bile than brains.

    FORGET ALL THE MEDIA SPIN …
    You can truly judge a candidate by
    who he’s attracted to …
    and, who’s attracted to him …
    For 20 years, Obama was attracted to
    Wright, Farrakhan, Pfleiger, Rezko, Moss, Ayers, etc.
    … and, those attracted to Obama include
    Madonna, Ludacris, the Nation of Islam, the
    black panthers, etc..
    Also … Michelle Obama subjected
    her two young children to anti-American racists
    for years, at the black liberation church of
    Jeremiah Wright.
    Elect a true American in November,
    Senator John McCain !!!

    OBAMA IS A WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING. HE TALKS A GOOD GAME, BUT PEOPLE CAN’T SEE PAST THE SMILE WHICH HIDES HIS HATE FOR AMERICA AND ALSO HIS WIFE IS NOT EXACTLY FOND OF AMERICA. PEOPLE WAKE UP AND SMELL THE LIES BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
