CNN Reports On Obama’s Lies


It’s a topsy-turvy world when CNN has a segment not only with Stanley Kurtz participating but where they actually do some good reporting on a…gasp….Democrat:

They shoot down as a lie the Obama statement that he only “briefly” served on a board with Ayers, they talk about the fact that most of the grants that came from that board went to radical causes, and then Drew Griffin tells the anchor, Anderson Cooper, how he had spoken to two people who attended the political coming out party for Obama held in the livingroom of Ayers and they both said Obama lied about the party being arranged by Alice Palmer instead of Ayers.

Ayers and Obama planned the whole party.

Only thing missing was the fact that the Annenberg Challenge group failed to accomplish anything to better our schools. Some legacy for Obama.

Of course in the end Cooper had to throw a hand out to Obama with a “But – but – but he denounced it, right?” question. No s&*t sherlock. Obama has been caught associating, for years, with a KNOWN terrorist…what else is he going to say? He said the same thing when caught going to a racist church for 20 years.

At least there is hope. When CNN doesn’t believe the lies coming from Obama then maybe, just maybe, McCain will come out swinging tonight with this stuff.


Mark Levin on those who have supported Obama:

As someone who has written critically of John McCain on a host of issues, including the Keating Five, none of it compares to the life that Barack Obama has led and his belief system. Obama is not merely associated with domestic terrorists, Palestinian radicals, Marxists, and black liberation ideologues — he was their favorite candidate. They groomed him. They befriended him. He befriended them. He socialized with them. In other words, these people saw Obama as representing their views and aspirations and he saw them the same way. I am not among those who raise Obama’s associations but add “of course, it doesn’t mean Obama shares their views.” Oh really? These miscreants include Obama’s former pastor, political mentors and allies, and friends. Obama attempts to downplay and distance himself from his own circle of allies now that he is running for president. But he is one of them. Obama is getting a pass that no other candidate in my memory has ever received.

If John McCain had belonged to a church for 20 years and that church advocated white supremacy and the pastor of the church spewed racist propaganda wrapped in Biblical verses — much of which was caught on video-tape — what would we say? If McCain’s good friends included people involved in blowing up abortion clinics instead of the Capitol Building, the Pentagon, and police stations, what would we say? If McCain was socially close to a professor with ties to neo-Nazi groups in Berlin, as opposed to a professor who had ties to the PLO, what would we say? If McCain spent his formative years schooled in fascism as opposed to Marxism, what would we say?

Every time Obama’s life experiences and character are raised, the response is a diversionary tactic. Today, we’re supposed to be impressed with the moral equivalency argument (Ayers = Keating Five), or Obama’s associations and friendships aren’t what they appear to be, or Obama really isn’t like all those people he drew around him, or those raising these issues are guilty of McCarthyism. There are 30 days left in this election. It’s high time the Obama fan-dance ended.

I don’t know if anyone has posted this one or not.

There are so many great videos scattered over so many great threads I may have missed it.


Obama and Ayers were only casual acquaintances.

They served together on two boards.

Ayers launched Obama’s political career from his living room, but they were just “friends” in the sense that their children went to the same school.



Not buying it.

I was surprised to see CNN cover this. But then there is the “School improvements, whats wrong with that?”

Somewhat related:
Obama supporters are keen to point out that he was only 7 years old (some say 8) when this happened. Didn’t this group bomb a house that had children in it? What were the ages of these children?



Here is the story about the house that was bombed with the children in it.

The author, John Murtaugh, was one of the children. He was 9.

During the April 16 debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, moderator George Stephanopoulos brought up “a gentleman named William Ayers,” who “was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He’s never apologized for that.” Stephanopoulos then asked Obama to explain his relationship with Ayers. Obama’s answer: “The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.” Obama was indeed only eight in early 1970. I was only nine then, the year Ayers’s Weathermen tried to murder me.

In February 1970, my father, a New York State Supreme Court justice, was presiding over the trial of the so-called “Panther 21,” members of the Black Panther Party indicted in a plot to bomb New York landmarks and department stores. Early on the morning of February 21, as my family slept, three gasoline-filled firebombs exploded at our home on the northern tip of Manhattan, two at the front door and the third tucked neatly under the gas tank of the family car. (Today, of course, we’d call that a car bomb.) A neighbor heard the first two blasts and, with the remains of a snowman I had built a few days earlier, managed to douse the flames beneath the car. That was an act whose courage I fully appreciated only as an adult, an act that doubtless saved multiple lives that night.

Read the rest.

It’s chilling.

Anderson Cooper tries his best to discount the story, doesn’t he? The other part missing is that the reporter says that Ayers held a decidedly different view of America “in the 60’s” – from what I have read, his views haven’t changed – gosh, why not point THAT one out, eh?

While this is an amazing improvement on CNN’s reporting – Cooper finishes it off with the repetitive, “but obama denounced it” – just to make sure the audience sees this as a political tactic and to downplay its importance. Why not just put reporter Drew on trial for cryin’ out loud Anderson?

Oh yeah, and they could add that obama SOUGHT and RECEIVED the political backing from the avowed Marxist “New Party” in Chicago back in 1995. This group was peppered with members of other communist groups. There is a lot more, of course the people at CNN could read David Freddoso’s book, “The Case Against Barack Obama”…….of course, so should McCain.
