obama despises america - and why it matters
Mister and Missus Obama show an ongoing pattern of
Obama and the Obama campaign tried desperately to spin
Michelle’s first slip-up as not being what she meant, but it is
clear from the repetition and her other comments that it was, indeed,
her real attitude.
Why is this important? After all she isn’t going
for ‘king of the hill’. It is, of course, important as she
is obviously highly, compatible with her hubby.
Consider Obama’s other dubious friends, his poor
judgemental and his extreme leftism, alongside his regular reaching for
the yellow button when put on the line in
This man is obviously not good news for America.
And how good is Mrs Obama as an ambassador abroad for
“February 18, 2008 8:24 PM
Speaking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin today, would-be First Lady Michelle
Obama said, "for the first time in my adult life I am proud of
my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
[Quoted from abcnews.com]
Here is another Missis Obama statement receiving very
“Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in
2008, and life is not good: we're a divided country, we're a country
that is "just downright mean," we are "guided by fear,"
we're a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. "We have become
a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,"
she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. "Folks are just jammed up,
and it's gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I'm young.
Forty-four!" ”[Quoted from newsbusters.org]
From the item:-
“The 1985 thesis provides a trove of Michelle Obama's thoughts
as a young woman, with many of the paper's statements describing the
student's world as seen through a race-based prism.”
And a quote from the missis:-
“I hoped that these findings would help me conclude that despite
the high degree of identification with whites as a result of the educational
and occupational path that black Princeton alumni follow, the alumni
would still maintain a certain level of identification with the black
community. However, these findings do not support this possibility.”
“But this time nobody could possibly blame him, though the mysterious
figure of his feared spin-doctor David Axelrod lurks in the background
here, and some suspect his hand in at least some of Obama's luck.
“The first slice of good fortune was that the seat was empty
- the incumbent suddenly retired, citing "family issues".
“The former Democratic holder of the seat, prominent black politician
Carol Moseley Braun, could have had it for the asking - and Obama would
not have dared challenge her - but she ruled herself out.
“That still left a couple of major Democratic challengers. But
Obama unexpectedly won union support and wiped out one of them.
“The second, Blair Hull, was a tougher proposition until details
of his divorce papers were unsealed, revealing his wife's accusations
of abuse, which virtually destroyed him.
“Obama won the Democratic nomination.
“To win election to the Senate, Obama would have had a major
battle against Republican Jack Ryan. But then Ryan's divorce papers
were also unsealed, revealing that his wife Jeri - an actress famous
for her tight costumes in Star Trek: Voyager - had accused him of pressuring
her to have sex in public in kinky clubs.
“Ryan denied it, but that was the end of him.”
“ "What's stopped us is the failure of leadership, the
smallness of our politics - the ease with which we're distracted by
the petty and trivial, our chronic avoidance of tough decisions,"
Obama said in his announcement speech. But a closer look at the presidential
candidate's record in the Illinois Legislature reveals something seemingly
contradictory: a number of occasions when Obama avoided making hard
“While some conservatives and Republicans surely will harp on
what they call his "liberal record," highlighting applicable
votes to support their case, it's Obama's history of voting "present"
in Springfield - even on some of the most controversial and politically
explosive issues of the day - that raises questions that he will need
to answer. Voting "present" is one of three options in the
Illinois Legislature (along with "yes" and "no"),
but it's almost never an option for the occupant of the Oval Office.”
“[...] when it suited him he would vote as far
Left as he could. "No one was further Left. He
would do things that were unrealistic to prove he was
“ "He was not far Left for political benefit
but because he was a true believer.
“ "But these would be on broad-brush issues
- unlike, say, detailed abortion laws - where it was
unlikely to be held against him. I have never heard
anyone say so little about detailed policies . . . He
has moderated his tones, but I don't think he has moderated
his beliefs," said Brady. [Illinois State Senator
Bill Brady]” [Quoted from dailymail.co.uk]
links with corruption
“Rezko's slum housing, Obama's district
“On April 23, 2007, Tim Novak reported in the
Chicago Sun-Times that Antoin "Tony" Rezko
had thirty (30) slum buildings for which he received
more than $100 million "from city and state agencies,"
eleven (11) of which were located geographically in
then-Illinois State Senator (1996-2004) Barack Obama's
"compact state senate district," Chicago's
Andy Martin wrote April 30, 2007.”
“In June 2005, Obama and Rezko purchased adjoining
parcels in Kenwood. The state's junior senator paid
$1.65 million for a Georgian revival mansion, while
Rezko paid $625,000 for the adjacent, undeveloped lot.
Both closed on their properties on the same day.
“Last January, aiming to increase the size of
his sideyard, Obama paid Rezko $104,500 for a strip
of his land.
“The transaction occurred at a time when it was
widely known Tony Rezko was under investigation by U.S.
Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and as other Illinois politicians
befriended by Rezko distanced themselves from him.”
“Obama and Rezko have been friends since 1990,
and Obama said the Wilmette businessman raised as much
as $60,000 for him during his political career. After
Rezko's indictment, Obama donated $11,500 to charity--a
total that represents what Rezko contributed to the
senator's federal campaign fund.” [Quoted from

Obama purchased the house for less
than market rate. Rezko purchased the adjoining lot, enabling
Obama to buy the house, and then Rezko sold him a portion
of the lot.
I suspect Rezko purchased his plot
at over-price to make up for the lower price paid by Obama
for the next-door property, and then sold a bit back to
Obama has taken donations from Rezko,
and has been involved with him for most of 20 years.
There is a very long history of crooked
(Democrat) politics in Chicago, where Rezko operates.
Money has been paid by ‘Chicago’ to house

or refurbished. Then there are ‘donations’
to the Chicago politicians from those who obtained the

with the poor”?
Rezko is now in jail pending trial
for corruption and kickbacks regarding local government.
He has been accused of laundering money from the Middle
East, among other peccadilloes. Rezko is Syrian by birth
(to a Christian family).
Obama has since tried to distance himself
from his friend.
Antoin "Tony" Rezko was arrested early Monday
at his Chicago-area home by federal agents on an alleged
bond violation, according to a report in the Chicago
“The Obamas' mansion, which they bought for
$1.65 million in June 2005, sits on a not-so-quiet corner
amid other mansions. They purchased it after Obama struck
his $1.9 million book deal with Random House and Crown
Publishers, a loophole in the ethics laws that limit
how members of Congress can make money on the side.”
“Obama said it was always his understanding that
Rezko, a real estate developer, intended to build on
the lot. It would be more of a favor if he didn't. Rezko
definitely did Obama a favor by selling him the 10-foot
strip of land, making his own parcel less attractive
for development, although still legally buildable.
“Rezko is somebody who collects politicians,
doing them favors in hopes of a future return on his
investment. His main foot in the door is political fund-raising,
but he also looks for a more personal approach, such
as steering real estate business to the wife of Gov.
“Assuming the lot sizes are the same the undeveloped
land should be 1/3 of the total price of the developed
as a rule of thumb. But Rezco has admitted paying more
than the price of the lot while Obama paid less than
the price of the home.” [Quoted from freerepublic.com]
“ [...] It is nothing short of a political godfather story.
The tale of an eager, brilliant, ambitious man wanting to rise in politics,
and the man who had the money to make it happen. It's the real true
tale of Barack Obama and Antoin "Tony" Rezko and the Faustian
political deal made in the quest for power, fame and political prowess,
which would eventually lead to a bid for the presidency. The fact that
Obama won't mention the name of the guy who made his rise to political
prominence possible out loud illustrates the efforts to which Obama,
with the aid of a mostly negligent press, has been able to make Rezko
a forbidden word to utter, instead of an issue that we all should know
a lot more about.” [Quoted from huffingtonpost.com.
Huffington Post is a left-wing source.]
“In a large urban area such as Chicago state senate districts
are not very large. They encompass several compact and contiguous neighborhoods.
If you walked the district even occasionally you would know, you should
know, almost every large building in the district," Martin wrote.”
“Should I have known these buildings were in a state of disrepair?
My answer would be that it wasn't brought to my attention,' the Chicago
Sun-Times reported Obama said. 'As far as I can tell, we were never
contacted by Rezko tenants.” [Quoted from rezkowatch.blogspot.com]
“Obama, who has worked as a lawyer and a legislator to improve
living conditions for the poor, took campaign donations from Rezko even
as Rezko's low-income housing empire was collapsing, leaving many African-American
families in buildings riddled with problems -- including squalid living
conditions, vacant apartments, lack of heat, squatters and drug dealers.”

Obama, in fact, makes great play of his working the
local streets and communities for a decade or two. He was at it again
only yesterday [12 March 2008].
and black nationalism
As Obama attempts to wriggle out of the
problems with Wright, he veers ever more closely towards open dishonesty.
I have no doubt that he was fully aware of Wright’s position. Obama
even named his second book after the theme of one of Wright’s sermons.
In that sermon, Wright referred to:
“It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more
food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where
white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere,
apathy in another hemisphere... That’s the world! On which hope
sits!” [p.293, Dreams of my father]
Wright is extremely forceful in suggesting that
James Cone is a brilliant theologian. Here are quotes from Cone:
“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.
“In the black liberation theology taught by Wright, Cone and
Hopkins, Jesus Christ is not for all men, but only for the oppressed:
“In the New Testament, Jesus is not for all, but for the oppressed,
the poor and unwanted of society, and against oppressors … Either
God is for black people in their fight for liberation and against the
white oppressors, or he is not [Cone].” [Quoted from thepoliticalpost.wordpress.com]
“The time has come for white America to be silent and listen
to black people. . . . All white men are responsible for white oppression.
. . . Theologically, Malcolm X was not far wrong when he called the
white man 'the devil.'. . . Any advice from whites to blacks on how
to deal with white oppression is automatically under suspicion as a
clever device to further enslavement.”
“Black suffering is getting worse, not better. . . . White supremacy
is so clever and evasive that we can hardly name it. It claims not to
exist, even though black people are dying daily from its poison”
[Black Theology and Black Power, 1969, quoted from freerepublic.com]
And this is Obama writing about Malcom X:
“Only Malcolm X's autobiography seemed to offer something different.
His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of
his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising
order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.
All the other stuff, the talk of blue-eyed devils and apocalypse, was
incidental to that program, I decided, religious baggage that Malcolm
himself seemed to have safely abandoned toward the end of his life.
And yet, even as I imagined myself following Malcolm's call, one line
in the book stayed me. He spoke of a wish he'd once had, the wish that
the white blood that tan through him, there by an act of violence, might
somehow be expunged. I knew that, for Malcolm, that wish would never
be incidental. I knew as well that traveling down the road to self-respect
my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction. I was left
to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother
and my grandparents at some uncharted border.” [p.86, Dreams
of my father]
I find Obama’s book to be bizarre in its rambling
concentration on his ‘blackness’, which verges on monomania.
At the same time, the white side of his family, although far more central
to his upbringing, is treated as a shadow world.
My conclusion is that Obama is far more steeped in
his black nationalism than he ever lets slip outside the confines of his
various dubious relationships and his ‘black church’.
See also, and listen to, the
racist rant of a guest preacher at Obama’s church, which rant
persuaded Obama to finally cut ties with that church.

[From Amanda Carpenter] “Obama has attended Wright’s
south side Chicago church, the Trinity United Church of Christ,
for the last 20 years and told reporters in the past he didn’t
think there as “anything particularly controversial”
I suspect Obama has the same poison in his head:
whining, victim playing, etc. Obama was not deprived to any serious
extent at any time in his life.
Feeding this sort of poison to uneducated blacks,
it’s little wonder they turn out dysfunctional. Wright is deranged.
I think they (Wright and Obama) are exploiting ignorant
and uneducated ‘blacks’. I am strongly inclined to judge
that to be deliberate.
It is Obama who is

I have read Obama’s first book, written when
his evasiveness was not quite as high as it is today. If read carefully
and between the lines, there is considerable material to generate some
understanding of this highly secretive and slippery customer. Here follow
a couple of quotes.
Here is Obama reporting on a relation’s view
of Obama’s natural grandfather:
“What your grandfather respected was strength [...] But he
could not understand such ideas as mercy towards your enemies, or
that this man Jesus could wash away a man’s sins. To your grandfather,
this was a foolish sentiment, something to comfort women. And so he
converted to Islam—he thought its practices conformed more closely
to his beliefs.” [p.407, Dreams from
my father, hbk]
And here is Obama on his Muslim stepfather:
“ "Your mother has a soft heart [he said] That’s
a good thing in a woman. But you will be a man someday, and a man
needs to have more sense." ”[p.39]
“I thought for a moment. "Why was the man killed? The one
“ "Because he was weak."
“ "That’s all?"
“Lolo shrugged and rolled his pant leg back down. “That’s
usually enough. Men take advantage of weakness in other men. They’re
just like countries in that way. The strong man takes the weak man’s
land. He makes the weak man work in his fields. If the weak man’s
woman is pretty, the strong man will take her." He paused to
take another sip of water, then asked, "Which would you rather
“I didn’t answer, and Lolo squinted up to
the sky. "Better to be strong," he said finally, rising
to his feet. "If you can’t be strong, be clever and make
peace with someone who’s strong. But always better to be strong
yourself. Always." ” [pp. 40-41]

To add to the chaos, it lacks an index. I therefore cannot recommend
