Breitbart’s last film: Occupy Wall St. Unmasked

About the film:

While Liberals in the Democrat Party, Hollywood and the MSM have supported, sympathized and even embraced Occupy Wall Street (OWS) as an organic, non-violent group that represents the working man, the truth is something much more sinister.

Former Leftist radicals, now Conservative patriots, like Brandon Darby, David Horowitz, Pam Keys, Anita MonCrief, Mandy Nagy, Lee Stranahan, go inside OWS camps and rallies and reveal the movement’s vulgar, violent, Marxist real face.

This is the trailer:

In 2007, Obama’s literary agent still says he was born in Kenya

Yesterday, the late Andrew Breitbart’s media organization revealed the explosive find of a brochure from two decades ago in which Barack Obama’s literary agency Acton & Dystel described him as “born in Kenya.”

In 1991, Acton & Dystel was promoting Obama as the author of the never-produced “Journeys in Black and White” by declaring Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” Here’s what the literary agency said in its brochure:

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.”

After this news went viral yesterday, Acton & Dystel came up with the lame excuse that it was a “fact-checking error.”

Well, 16 years later, the agency must still have the same incompetent “fact-checker” because in 2007, a year before the 2008 presidential campaign, Acton & Dystel still described Obama as “born in Kenya” in promoting his autobiography, Dreams From My Father!

I’m a published author, having singly written four university-press books and co-authored six others. I can therefore speak from experience dealing with publishers and agents that they don’t make up stuff about authors. They publish the biographical information that the authors gave them.

Drew Zahn reports for WND, May 18, 2012:

Twelve years later, however, the Dystel of Acton & Dystel was busy promoting Obama’s new book, “Dreams from My Father,” and still touting the author as “born in Kenya.”

Through the Internet archive Wayback Machine, WND found an August 2003 listing of Dystel & Goderich’s author bios, including the following: “Barack Obama was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii and Chicago. His first book is ‘Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.”

Even if the original 1991 brochure’s listing of Kenya as Obama’s birthplace was in error, as the agency has since claimed, it apparently was an error Obama allowed his publicist to persist in for over a decade, right until after he was running for president.

In April 2007, two months after Obama had launched his presidential bid, Dystel was still touting the then-Democratic senator from Illinois as “born in Kenya.”

Another trip to the Internet’s Wayback Machine shows Dystel & Goderich describing Obama this way: “Barack Obama is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.”

Only a few weeks later, the Internet archive reveals, the publicist had changed Obama’s birthplace to Hawaii.

Read the rest of Zahn’s article here.

And it’s not just Obama’s literary agent. The Associated Press also said Obama was born in Kenya. (H/t FOTM reader Wade!)

In a syndicated report, published on June 27, 2004, by the Kenyan Standard Times, and which was, as of this report, available at http://web.archive.org/web/20040627142700/eastandard.net/headlines/news26060403.htm, the AP reporter stated the following:

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

Something stinks, and it sure ain’t my Peekaboo‘s two litter-boxes!

Witness to Breitbart’s death found

Joe Kovacs reports for WND today that Los Angeles private investigator Paul Huebl has located Christopher Lasseter, the witness to Andrew Breitbart’s death last March 1.

Days before his sudden death, Breitbart had vowed he and his media organization, Breitbart.com, would do the vetting of Barack Obama which the MSM had failed to do in 2008. More than that, Breitbart said he had “damaging” information on Obama’s past associations, especially with Bill Ayers.

Here’s Huebl interviewing Lasseter:

That’s interesting — that Lasseter saw a band of white blanched skin along Breitbart’s hairline, and that Breitbart’s face was bright red.

There’s more information on Huebl’s site. Click here.

Meanwhile, Kovacs also reports that both L.A. law enforcement and the Coroners Office are denying that criminalist (forensic technician) Michael Cormier, who died of suspected arsenic poisoning on the same day as the Coroner issued its final autopsy report on Breitbart, had anything to do with the Breitbart case:

“Det. Rich Wheeler, a homicide supervisor with the Los Angeles Police Department, told WND that Cormier had no connection whatsoever to the investigation into Breitbart’s death.

“No. As far as I know, none,” Wheeler said.

His comment is confirmed by Ed Winter, assistant chief of operations and Cormier’s colleague at the coroner’s office.

“Mr. Cormier was not the attendant on Mr. Breitbart’s case, nor did he do any of the handling nor any of the investigation,” Winter told WND.”

What the mailman knows about Obama

Before he died suddenly while walking home in the late of night, Andrew Breitbart had vowed to do the job that the media deliberately neglected to do — vett the man known variously as Barry Soetoro Stephen Dunham Barack Hussein Obama.

The organization that he left behind, Breitbart.com, is carrying on Andrew’s work (although paradoxically, Breitbart.com’s new editor Ben Shapiro declared Obama’s eligibility “simply doesn’t matter”). So are others.

Here are excerpts from author Jack Cashill‘s latest effort. I inserted the photos.

What the Mailman Knows about Ayers and Obama

By Jack Cashill – American Thinker – March 19, 2012

[...] a video interview with the mailman by WND sleuth Jerome Corsi [...] made me sit up and pay attention.  The mailman is a real person.  His name is Alan Hulton.  He seems entirely credible, and he has a story to tell.

Alan Hulton

Hulton delivered mail in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, from 1962 to 2001 with a couple years off to serve in the military.  During roughly ten of those years, he delivered mail to the home of Tom and Mary Ayers, Bill Ayers’s parents.  Hulton talked to Tom once, Mary several times, their daughter-in-law Bernardine Dohrn a few times, and Bill Ayers not at all.  Memorably, he talked once to one of their visitors, but more on that in a moment.

Marxist domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and wife Bernardine Dohrn

As Hulton tells Corsi — and he has sworn an affidavit to the same — he met Tom Ayers not long after the Ayerses moved to the neighborhood.  Until he retired in 1980 at the age of 65, Tom Ayers was the CEO and chairman of Commonwealth Edison.  Tom, however, was not your garden-variety plutocrat.  According to Diamond, who knows his way around Chicago politics, Tom was a “lifelong liberal” — one deeply involved in the same educational reform movement that engaged son Bill and, briefly, Barack Obama in 1988.  Tom Ayers was comfortable enough with Bill’s lifestyle to live with him in Hyde Park until Tom died in 2007.

When Hulton met Tom Ayers, they talked about working conditions at the Post Office.  “I couldn’t believe how he responded,” Hulton told Diamond.  “He started to talk about workers having to struggle to survive and about peasants and the proletariat.  It made me think later that he might be a Marxist!”  Hulton would tell Corsi, “I had this uncomfortable feeling that he thought he knew about my situation as a working person better than I did, that he knew what was best for me.”

Hulton also recalls one particular conversation with Mary Ayers.  “She was enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student that they were helping out,” he tells Corsi, “and she referred to him as a foreign student.”  Adds Hulton, “I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him.”  Within a year of this conversation, Hulton had a fateful meeting with the young man he presumed Mary was talking about.

According to Hulton, he encountered the fellow on the sidewalk on the front of the Ayers home.  In that it was extremely rare to see a black man in this tony neighborhood, Hulton believes that the man felt the need to explain his visit to the Ayers household.  Hulton describes him as friendly and neatly, although casually, dressed.  Hulton tells Corsi, “I am absolutely positive that it was Barack Obama.”

Hulton was sympathetic.  After he had come out of military service, he was a supporter of Martin Luther King, who had pressed for fair housing in the Chicago area in the 1960s.  “I took some flak about my support for civil rights from my fellow workers at the time,” remembers Hulton.

Obama explained to Hulton that he had taken the train out from Chicago to Glen Ellyn in order “to thank the Ayers family personally for helping him with his education.”  What shocked Hulton was that when casually inquiring into the young man’s plans for the future, Obama answered, “I am going to be president of the United States.”  As Hulton tells Corsi, “[i]t came across like this was something that’s already been determined.”  Adds Hulton, “I was speechless.”

Hulton told Diamond and Corsi essentially the same story.  What gives the Corsi interview added value is that we see Hulton tell it.  Although just a year older than Bill Ayers, he seems to come from a different generation.  He has little to gain — and a lot to risk — by going public.  Corsi warns Hulton that by quoting Mary’s comment that Obama was a “foreign student,” he has put himself at some risk.  Says Hulton, “I am only telling you what I distinctly remember her saying — that he was a foreign student.”

[...] There is a good deal at stake here.  According to Snopes and the other fact-check sites, Bill Ayers and Obama did not meet until the mid-1990s.  This is a talking point that both Ayers and Obama have upheld.  When Ayers appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America in 2008, he put the date of their first meeting in 1995 at a fundraiser in Ayers’s own home.  “I think he was probably in 20 homes that day as far as I know,” said Ayers.  “But that was the first time I really met him.”

Percy Sutton

As it happens, I stumbled into my own discovery of Ayers’s involvement in the writing of Obama’s 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, when I was investigating how Obama got into Harvard Law School and who paid his way.  What had piqued my interest was an interview with veteran New York power-broker Percy Sutton on a local New York City show called Inside City Hall.  The interview took place in late March 2008 but did not surface until August 2008.

Sutton told how twenty years prior he had been “introduced to [Obama] by a friend.”  The friend’s name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, “the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men.”  The billionaire in question was Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.  According to Sutton, al-Mansour had asked him to “please write a letter in support of [Obama] … a young man that has applied to Harvard.”  Sutton had friends at Harvard and gladly did so.

A few months before the election, it should have mattered that a respected black political figure like Sutton had publicly announced that a fanatic black separatist, backed by an ambitious Saudi billionaire, had been guiding Obama’s career perhaps for the last twenty years.  It did to the Obama-friendly media, but not in a way in which it would have to real journalists.  Moving in swiftly to kill the story were Politico, an insider D.C. journal run by Washington Post alums, and Media Matters for America, an alleged watchdog group founded by the recovering Troopergate author, David Brock.

Ben Smith, then of Politico, took the lead.  Shortly after the story broke, Smith ran the disclaimer that “Barack Obama’s campaign is flatly denying a story told by former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton.”  After some conspicuous waffling, al-Mansour denied the story as well.  A self-appointed “spokesman for Sutton’s family” by the name of Kevin Wardally sent an e-mail to Smith that read in part: “As best as our family and the Chairman’s closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.”

[...]  With Hillary out of the race, no newsroom in America felt compelled to dig up dirt that could sully Obama.

About that time, I found a diary entry that caught my attention.  Radical-turned-actor Peter Coyote entered it at the time of the 1996 Democratic National Convention in Chicago.  Coyote wrote, “I inform Martha that I’m dragging her to the apartment of old friends, ex-Weathermen, Bernadine [sic] Dohrn and Bill Ayers, hosting a party for Senator Leahy. Perhaps Edward Said will be there.”

Said had taught Obama at least one class at Columbia.  I had earlier seen a photo taken during an Arab-American community dinner in Chicago in 1998 on the fiftieth anniversary of the Palestinian nakba, or disaster.  The photo shows Obama sitting next to Said, seemingly engaged in an animated conversation at dinner.  The intimacy surprised me.  At the time of the photo, Obama was an obscure state senator while Said, according to the Nation, was “probably the best-known intellectual in the world” and the star of that evening’s show.  He would speak on this occasion, as the Los Angeles Times would later report, “against settlements, against Israeli apartheid.”

All of this got me to wondering whether an Ayers-Obama-Said-al-Mansour cabal had formed in the early 1980s back in New York City.  If so, such a combine might have generated enough momentum to push Obama’s career along.  To see if Obama and Ayers had crossed paths before Chicago, I ordered a copy of Bill Ayers’ 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days.  It was then that I began to realize the depth of Ayers’s involvement in Obama’s rise to power.

Obama would have needed help to get into Harvard.  Friendly biographer David Remnick tells us that Obama was an “unspectacular” student in his two years at Columbia and at every stop before that going back to grade school.  A Northwestern University professor, John L. McKnight, although a friend of Obama’s and a fellow Alinskyite, reinforces the point, telling Remnick, “I don’t think [Obama] did too well in college.”  As to Obama’s LSAT scores, Jimmy Hoffa’s body will be unearthed before those are.

How such an indifferent student got into a law school whose applicants’ LSAT scores typically track between the 98th and the 99th percentile and whose GPAs range between 3.80 and 4.00 is a subject the media have chosen not to explore.  Nor have they asked how Obama paid for that education.  Maybe it is time they ask the mailman.

More Obama Vetting: His fave Congressman gets award from commies

Andrew Breitbart had fallen, but his people at Breitbart.com are carrying on his work.

Here is another video in Breitbart’s quest to do the job that the media deliberately neglected to do in 2008 — vetting the man known variously as Barry Soetoro Stephen Dunham Barack Hussein Obama.

Birds of a feather flock together. This is what Wikipedia says about Barack’s favorite Congressman:

Danny K. Davis is the U.S. Representative for Illinois’s 7th congressional district, serving since 1997. He is a member of the Democratic Party. [...]

Although Davis was fully promoted as a Democratic candidate, he also ran as a New Party candidate. Supporting this was New Party’s celebration of him as the “first New Party member elected to the U.S. Congress.” Although the State of Illinois did not permit fusion voting, New Party advocated fusion voting as a means to promote their party and party agenda and to particularly project New Party ideology into the mainstream Democratic Party. Candidates were referred to as “N[ew]P[arty] Democrats” and were required to sign a contract mandating a “visible and active relationship” with New Party. During this timeframe, New Party was experiencing substantial growth and included in its ranks a young Barack Obama.

Davis also received the endorsement of the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (CDSA) of which he is a member and had a relationship pre-dating his congressional run. ACORN, AFL-CIO, Sierra Club, and International Brotherhood of Teamsters are included in other groups also endorsing Davis in his bid.

In February, 2012, Davis was interviewed about his involvement and award from the Communist Party USA. [...]

In 2004, Davis was met with national controversy when he crowned the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in a religious ceremony at the Dirksen Senate Office Building honoring the controversial spiritual leader. Moon declared himself the Messiah at the crowning ceremony, in which Davis appeared on the invitation as a sponsoring co-chair. Davis wore white gloves and carried the crown on a pillow to crown Moon and his wife “the King and Queen of Peace.”

O’Keefe exposes voter fraud in Vermont

James O’Keefe is that valiant young man who exposed the criminality and corruption of several ACORN offices, which led to Congress withdrawing taxpayer funding of ACORN in 2009, which led to the closing down of ACORN in 2010.

Like a hydra that grows back a head when one is cut off, ACORN has revived itself under different names: Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, New York Communities for Change,and Affordable Housing Centers of America. Last year, Judicial Watch discovered that the Obama administration is flouting the will of Congress by giving federal taxpayer money to precisely one of ACORN’s new guises. HUD gave a $79,819 grant to the Affordable Housing Centers of America.

Nevertheless, Congress’ funding withdrawal and subsequent dismantling of ACORN did put a damper on the criminal syndicate’s activities.

In his daring sting, O’Keefe had the support of the late Andrew Breitbart, whose sudden death on March 1 still awaits the L.A. coroner’s full report.

Andrew Breitbart is dead, but James O’Keefe and other conservative activists are carrying on the battle.

Christian Hartsock reports for Breitbart.com that O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a new video exposing just how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Vermont.

The video, a sequel to O’Keefe’s “Primary of the Living Dead” in New Hampshire, shows a Veritas agent entering various voting places around the state of Vermont, giving a different name each time. Each time, he is given a ballot without showing an ID, to his disbelief.

O’Keefe’s new video follows in the wake of a highly-politicized media attack on him after his exposure of voter fraud in New Hampshire. Those videos resulted in calls from the left for O’Keefe’s arrest. However, the videos soon resulted in the New Hampshire State Senate passing a new bill requiring voter ID.

O’Keefe’s new video from Vermont could not be more timely, coming the day after Obama’s Department of Injustice’s civil rights division blocked a Texas photo ID requirement for voters–to the applause of the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the law was “discriminatory” against “Latinos, African-Americans, elderly citizens, and others.”

As the Project Veritas video shows, the current system in Vermont discriminates against actual legal voters, who must face the prospect of disenfranchisement by those who would vote in their stead illegally, or have their votes cancelled out by those voting illegally in place of deceased voters who have yet to be removed from the rolls. If it is not discriminatory for Vermont citizens to be required to show ID to get married or buy alcohol, it is certainly not discriminatory to make them show ID to vote.

“It is a national disgrace that ballots can be given out in the names of dead people,” O’Keefe told Breitbart.com. “Threats of government intimidation will not stop us from protecting the integrity of the ballot box. If any state has a system which encourages ballots to be given out to the wrong person, dead or alive, we will come to your state, we will film your poll workers, and Project Veritas will put the videos on YouTube. States like Vermont and New Hampshire have to take dead people off voter registration forms and clean up their act, once and for all.”

Here’s O’Keefe’s Vermont voter fraud video (h/t LTG):

Who is this man, Obama?

The vetting of Obama which the media deliberately neglected to do in 2008 is being done by the alternative media.

Andrew Breitbart left us videos of Obama’s past, the first of which was released two days ago, showing Obama extolling a virulent black racist Derrick Bell as a “great man.”

Now, Dr. Dinesh D’Souza makes a case for Barack Obama being the son of his (purported) father, Barack Obama Sr. — that is, an angry anti-colonialist man who hates America and the West.

The clue is the very title of Obama’s autobiography, Dreams From My Father. It’s not a book about the dreams of his father, but a book about how his dreams are from, that is the same as, his father’s.

And Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was a socialist, West-hating, anti-colonialist Kenyan.

Obama is not an “ordinary” Democrat who wants to redistribute income and wealth in America. Obama is an out-of-the-ordinary Democrat who hates the West and Western civilization, and means to realign — debase — America’s place in the world.
