After Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama on Meet the Press (10/19/08) the liberal media heralded the importance of the endorsement. Andrea Mitchell of NBC, hyped it as “a very powerful political statement.” While liberals fawn over Obama, credible columnist like Stanley Kurtz, Thomas Sowell, Amanda Carpenter, Tony Blankley and many more have reported on Obama’s unsavory alliances, poor judgment, dishonesty and Marxist policies.
In “Dreams From My Father” Obama stated, “I chose my friends carefully.” Interestingly enough Jack Cashill has made a convincing case that William Ayers was the “ghost writer” of the book. But the question that begs to be answered is why isn’t the liberal media mentioning “all” the “friends” Obama has chosen carefully? Here are some they fail to mention.
Like the support of Obama’s mentors. Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party USA who developed a father-son relationship with Obama and advised him on his career path. And Gerald Kellman, a community organizer and disciple of Saul Alinsky and was Obama”s first mentor in Chicago. (Saul Alinsky was a Marxist organizer and strategist for anti-establishment 60’s revolutionaries that was only concerned with the acquisition of power by any means. In “Rules for Radicals” (1971) Alinsky gave this tribute: “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom Lucifer.”)
Obama established close alliances with Marxist / Liberals and racist who openly express hatred of America and they in turn endorse him. Here are a few. Khalid Al-Mansour, a Black Nationalist Muslim and “mentor” to the founders of the Black Panther party raised money for Obama’s education and along with Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal sought recommendations for him to attend Harvard Law School. Domestic terrorist and devout Marxist William Ayers and Racist Black Liberation Theologian Rev. Jeremiah Wright, to whom he gave $20,000, both endorse him. He directed $225,000 of Illinois taxpayers” money to “hate America first” Father Michael Pfleger, who in turn endorses him. Islamic racist Louis Farakhan not only endorses Obama but called him the new messiah. Chicago slum-lord Antoin Rezko would campaign for the un-indicted co-conspirator, but is a recently convicted felon. Obama is endorsed by the corrupt Chicago Daley machine and the Communist Party USA, who’s New York’s party chairman Libero Della Piana recently announced they can now go on the offensive to implement their agenda. Why haven’t the sycophant liberal media trumpeted these endorsements?
Liberals disregard the endorsement of ACORN, the corrupt community organization that is involved in massive voter fraud and the current financial disaster. ACORN, with Obama’s assistance, pressured banks to make high risk loans to unqualified applicants. As a director at Chicago’s Woods Fund and a board member of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, he funneled more than $100 million to ACORN. ACORN leader Madeline Talbott, who used the Community Reinvestment Act (1977) to lead the campaign to intimidate Chicago banks into making high-risk loans to unqualified customers, endorses Obama.
Those who had an instrumental role in the current financial crisis endorse Obama. Like Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), who along with Obama, blocked republican attempts to reform Fannie and Freddie’s risky and fraudulent practices. Franklin Raines, former Fannie Mae CEO from 1999-2004, had employees forge earning reports and inflate the value of mortgages so he could receive a $90 million bonus. He not only endorses Obama but was an economic advisor. Jim Johnson, previous Fannie Mae CEO, was involved in the sub-prime fiasco and received $21 million, not only endorses Obama but was on his V.P. vetting team. Obama is endorsed by Clinton’s Deputy Attorney General, Eric Holder, who was a key participant in the pardon of terrorist and Marc Rich, and was on his V.P. vetting team.
Liberals brag about foreign endorsements for Obama. NBC proudly announced, “If the world had a vote, Barack Obama would win in a landslide.” This is not merely a rhetorical comment. Not only does global Marxist endorse Obama but Al-Jazeera has reported the endorsements of these Jihadists; Syrian President Assad, Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, political advisor for Hamas, Ahmed Yousef and Col. Omar Khadafi who said, “Obama is one of us and we continue to support him.” Not only has the PLO endorsed Obama but they have engaged in supportive “phone banking” activities from Gaza. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other Iranian leaders have endorsed Obama and during his recent visit to the U.S. a reception was given for him at Obama’s fundraiser hotel, the New York Hyatt, owned by his campaign’s finance chairperson, Penny Pritzker’s, family. Why do our enemies endorse Obama? Why doesn’t the liberal media trumpet these endorsements?
Not only do foreigners endorse Obama they are participating in the U.S. election process by making illegal contributions. Obama has received an estimated 60,383 contributions in un-rounded amounts, which represent conversions of foreign currency. Obama refuses to supply the names of these contributors.
Is it any wonder that Obama has so many foreign supporters? Not only is he perceived as naive and weak but he has scolded Americans for driving SUVs, eating as much as we want and keeping our homes at 72 degrees and says as president he is not going to let that happen. He sponsored the Global Poverty Act of 2007 which requires the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to promote the elimination of extreme global poverty.
I believe that Obama voters fall into four categories: one, Marxist that agree with his ideology and policies; two, Democrats that vote democrat regardless of the candidate; three, emotional voters who are completely ignorant of the issues and voting for Obama makes them feel good; and four, voters who are voting for Obama simply because he is black. I do not necessarily believe this information will change any of their minds, but it needs to be said.
