The clues were all there, and the MSM deliberately turned their cameras away from them, or dug a hole and buried them, or, if they couldn’t do that, they dismissed them, because they would ruin the narrative they were fabricating for Obama that would get him elected. It seems to me that any prudent, rational person, if they were able to see the totality of the record, looking at Obama and his family, the major influences in his life, and his close friends, would quickly run the other way, and would certainly not want Obama to get anywhere near the Presidency. The absent black Muslim father who Obama idolized, a Luo tribesman from Kenya, a failed Socialist and alcoholic, with eventually also had 3 other African wives, who abandoned his white wife and Obama, and who Obama only saw once after the age of 2, when his father came to Hawaii for one week. The leftist, iconoclastic white mother who then married a second Muslim, took Obama off to Indonesia, where he was educated as a Muslim for a time, then dumped Obama, at age 10, on his white grandparents in Hawaii after she divorced her second husband, and then, essentially abandoned Obama during the rest of her life, which, except for the occasional visit, she spent overseas doing “field work”. The hardworking grandmother who kept it all together—the “racist” “typical white person,” Obama used as a political prop in his campaign, the grandfather, “Gramps,” a not very successful furniture salesman, who used to take the child Obama along when he frequented the bars in Honolulu’s red light district, introduced him to his drinking and pot smoking buddy, Frank Marshall Davis, and who from what he wrote in “Dreams From My Father,” Obama had little respect for. Then, there was the mentor of Obama’s teen age years, an “angry black man,” hard drinking, pot smoking newspaperman, Communist Party member, and admitted pervert and pedophile, Frank Marshal Davis. In college, Obama was, as was Bill Ayers, a friend of leftist Jew hater Edward Said, author of the book, “Orientalism” that helped so powerfully to destroy our traditional school of experts on Islam, the “Orientalists,” who after hundreds of years of accumulated study of Islam, thought very little good about it, and this is likely where Obama first met Ayers. Then, as a disciple of the manipulative, amoral methods of Marxist agitator Saul Alinsky, author of “Rules For Radicals,” Obama taught and used those methods for four years as a “community organizer.” It was during his time as an “organizer,” too, that Obama started his 20 years of close association with the Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright (who Obama used to call his “very close friend,” “mentor,” and “spiritual and political advisor” until Wright’s sermons and statements became widely known) and his Trinity United Church of Christ, where Obama heard a weekly dose of hatred for Whites, Jews and Israel and conspiracy theories, and where Obama was told that “White greed rules a world in need,” as he listed to Wright’s Marxist “Black Liberation Theology” whose creator, Union Theological Seminary’s Professor James H. Cone, wrote: “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.” (Quoted in William R Jones, “Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology”, in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology, ed Cornel West and Eddie Glaube.) Then back from 10 years on the lam came unrepentant urban terrorist Bill Ayers and his blood thirsty wife Bernadine Dohrn, who made the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, both, to quote Ayers, “Guilty as sin and free as a bird,” with 26 or perhaps 30 Weathermen bombings and several innocent civilians and policemen killed to their credit–friends of Obama and supporters–who held the party and fund raiser that launched Obama’s career in Chicago politics; Ayers’ father’s fortune (past Chairman of the Board of Con Edison) and vast influence as the “Godfather” of Chicago politics were, I’m sure, very helpful to Obama, too. For four years Obama was the Director of the Annenberg Challenge in Chicago, which was supposed to improve Chicago’s abysmal school system; lawyer Michelle, later Michelle Obama, had a hand in landing the totally inexperienced 34 year old Obama this job, which Chicago Challenge founder Bill Ayers hired Obama for. At the Challenge, Obama and Ayers worked very closely together, pouring over $110 million dollars into far left advocacy groups like hard Left Moaist Mike Klonsky’s “Freedom Schools,” and groups pushing Black identity politics, while stiff-arming any proposals directed strictly at improving math or reading skills in Chicago’s abysmal school system. After it was all over everyone concerned, as well as outside experts, agreed it was a total failure. Then came Tony Rezko, Rashid Khalidi and on and on. I find it very hard to believe that, if the whole picture would have been presented, that Obama would be President today.
