Terrorist Ayers Finally Admits He Wrote aka Obama’s Book

Terrorist Bill Ayers has finally admitted what many patriots have known all along, he wrote aka Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father.”

From WND:

Bill Ayers, the unrepentant former leader of the radical 1960s Weather Underground group, has been asked on several occasions over the past five years if he wrote “Dreams from My Father,” the book offered as evidence that Barack Obama is an intellectual heavyweight worthy of the Oval Office despite his relatively thin resume.

Aware of WND columnist and author Jack Cashill’s extensive literary analysis and independent corroboration by a friendly Obama biographer, Ayers has obscured his responses with a layer of irony, telling inquirers in essence, Yes, I did, and if you can help me prove it, I’ll split the royalties with you.

The conversation took a familiar path, but toward the end, Corsi tried to cut through the irony, pointing out to Ayers that he typically says he wrote it and will split the royalties with anyone who can prove it.Prior to a debate Thursday night with author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza at Dartmouth College, Ayers brought up the subject himself in an exchange with WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi.

Corsi asserted that Ayers’ familiar, ironic reply was a declaration that he doesn’t really mean what he’s saying, that he was “taking it back.”

“No, it does not take it back,” Ayers insisted.

“It doesn’t?” asked Corsi.

“No,” Ayers said.

“You wrote it?”

“I wrote it,” Ayers said.

Whether or not Ayers was simply draping another layer of irony on his “admission,” Cashill’s compelling comparative analysis was confirmed in a 2009 book by celebrity biographer Christopher Anderson, “Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage,” which recounted in some detail how a desperate Obama in the mid-1990s, facing a second canceled book contract, sought the help of Ayers.

Cashill, who makes his case in his book “Deconstructing Obama,” said in a 2011 interview with WND he believed Ayers, with a sharp intellect, had been “careful to couch his comments with irony.”

Cashill said he believed, however, that Ayers’s irony was not aimed at critics like him but at the White House, “letting Obama know that he could blow Obama out of the water, if he gets serious about it.”

Cashill noted Ayers is strongly anti-war and at odds with many of Obama’s policies.

“All Ayers would have to do is give a press conference in which he demonstrated he was the principle craftsman behind ‘Dreams’ and the whole myth of Obama’s literary genius would come crashing down,” Cashill said.

The exchange Thursday night went like this:

Corsi: “I’ve written about you.”

Ayers: “You’ve written about me? What did you write?”

Corsi: “I work for WND. I wrote ‘The Obama Nation’ book.”

Ayers: “Oh yeah, ‘The Obama Nation.’ … I vaguely remember, but you know that I wrote ‘Dreams from My Father,’ right?”

Corsi: “Well, you say that, but you kid about it all the time.”

Ayers: “Which is true.”

Corsi: “You tell me. I think you did.”

Ayers: “I did, I did. You’re right. You get the scoop. That’s a scoop.”

Corsi: “Can I quote you on that?”

Ayers: “You can quote me on that and help me split the royalties, too, if you can prove it.”

Corsi: “Oh, you always say that.”

Ayers: “I always say that.”

Corsi: “So, you take it back?”

Ayers: “No, I’m not taking it back.”

Corsi: “That takes it back.”

Ayers: “No, it does not take it back.”

Corsi: “It doesn’t?”

Ayers: “No.”

Corsi: You wrote it?

Ayers: “I wrote it.”

‘Just a guy’

“Dreams” won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album and drew praise from Time magazine, which called it “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”

Bill Ayers and Dinesh D’Souza prepare to debate at Dartmouth
In the 2008 election campaign, Obama dismissed Ayers as merely a fellow resident of the upscale Hyde Park area of Chicago, or “just a guy in the neighborhood.”

But Ayers – whose movement sought to overthrow the U.S. government and replace it with a communist regime – served with Obama in the leadership of education projects with radical aims and has admitted to hosting Obama’s first political fundraiser the same year “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance” was published, 1995.

As WND reported, a previous exchange with Ayers about “Dreams” took place in a video interview June 19 with Real Clear Politics Executive Editor Tom Bevan and Charlie Stone.

“Yes. I wrote that,” Ayers replied when asked. “I’ve written many books for many Hyde Parkers, but that one I wrote. And it didn’t take long. I had a few interviews, and then I wrote it up. It took me about four months.”

Apparently alluding to Cashill’s comparative analysis, Ayers said, “And, I love the nautical imagery, which I also use in ‘Fugitive Days.’”

Ayers paused.

“Now, if you guys can help me prove this,” he said, smiling and eliciting laughter from his interviewers, “I’ll split the royalties with you. … I haven’t gotten a nickel from my effort.”

Without mentioning Cashill’s name, Ayers then referred to “a book comparing phrases from ‘Dreams from My Father.’”

“So, he’s proven it, kind of,” Ayers said of Cashill. “But I’m still not getting any royalty checks.”

Cashill, after watching the clip, told WND that in each response to the authorship question over the past five years, Ayers “adds new information and eases off on the irony.”

Cashill noted that in the June interview, Ayers gives his writing work with Obama a reasonable time frame, four months.

“He also talks about other Hyde Park authors and, in fact, local radical Rashid Khalidi gave Ayers top billing in the acknowledgment section of his book ‘Resurrecting Empire,’” Cashill pointed out.

Ayers, he said, “enjoys the game, I suspect, more than Obama does.”

‘Be sure to write it down’

As WND reported in 2011, in a Q&A after a speech sponsored by the Students for a Democratic Society at Montclair State University in New Jersey, Ayers volunteered that he was the ghostwriter of “Dreams” then finished with his usual “split the royalties” joke.

In 2009, WND reported Ayers gave a similar ironic answer to a National Journal reporter who posed the question at a book conference.

Ayers declared to the National Journal reporter, “Yes, I wrote ‘Dreams from My Father.’”

“Here’s what I’m going to say,” Ayers said, according to a report in Talking Points Memo. “This is my quote. Be sure to write it down: ‘Yes, I wrote ‘Dreams from My Father.’ I ghostwrote the whole thing. I met with the president three or four times, and then I wrote the entire book.”

TPM reported that Ayers then released the National Journal reporter’s arm, beamed “in Marxist triumph,” and said, “And now I would like the royalties.”

In an encounter at Reagan National Airport in October 2009 with conservative blogger Anne Leary, who did not even ask the question, Ayers declared, “Yes, I wrote ‘Dreams from My Father’ … Michelle [Obama] asked me to.”

Leary said she was sipping coffee by the United Airlines counter before going through security when she saw Ayers:

“Then, unprompted he [Ayers] said – I wrote ‘Dreams From My Father.’ I said, oh, so you admit it. He said – Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He’s about my height, short. He went on to say – and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties. So I said, stop pulling my leg. Horrible thought. But he came again – I really wrote it, the wording was similar. I said I believe you probably heavily edited it. He said – I wrote it. I said – why would I believe you, you’re a liar.

“He had no answer to that. Just looked at me and walked off, and said again his bit about my proving it and splitting the proceeds.”

Previously, in May 2009, a Washington Times online editor posed the authorship question at a Baltimore book-signing.

In the encounter, which was captured on video, the Times’ Kerry Picket asked Ayers if he had received any feedback from Obama on Ayers’ latest book, “Race Course: Against White Supremacy.”

Ayers asked rhetorically, “Why would I?”

Picket then asked, “Considering that you may have had a collaboration with ‘Dreams of My Father.’”

Ayers’ body language changed abruptly. Turning away from Picket, he replied curtly, “I never had a collaboration, no.”

“No?” she persisted.

“That’s a myth,” said Ayers, ending the conversation.

Palin forbidden to tell the truth about Obama in 2008 campaign

For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: “It might have been!”

-John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)

Sarah 2008Former Governor Sarah Palin was interviewed by Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren on July 26, 2013. Beginning at around the 2:45 mark, Palin says:

“I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists –  those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain’s campaign at the time — said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things.

What that got us, this kind of complacency and self-censoring of a campaign where we weren’t allowed to tell the truth about who this candidate was — Barack Obama. What it got us was a list of these scandals.”

The many astounding coincidences of Obama

Coincidence?

By Don Fredrick
June 26, 2013

[The essay below was originally published as "Just Happened....," in The Obama Timeline, Sept. 30, 2012.]

Any one of these ‘coincidences’ when taken singularly appear to not mean much, but when taken as a whole, a computer would blow a main circuit if you asked it to calculate the odds that they have occurred by chance alone. Sit back, get a favorite beverage, and then read and ponder the Obama-related ‘coincidences’ … then super-impose the bigger picture of most recent events i.e. Fast and furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal and the NSA revelations … then pray for our country.

Obama just happened to know 60′s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.

Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago, and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Mrs.Obama), who just happened to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job.

Bernardine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for MalcolmX, who just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.

Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obama’s Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happened to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happened to have no concern exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.

After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that just happened to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul “the Red” Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s thesis at Wellesley College, and Obama’s $25,000 salary at IAF just happened to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company just happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers just happened to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama.

Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s and just happened to work with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson, who just happened to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage the U.S. war effort, and who just happened to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, which just happened to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke, and which just happened to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a former SDS activist and later public relations consultant who just happened to be a long-time friend of Obama’s political hatchet man, David Axelrod.

Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator who just happened to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American sermons, which Obama just happened never to hear because he just happened to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his “most enthusiastic,” and Obama just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical, and just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.

Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama just happened to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he just happened to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of non-writing he just happened to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama just happened never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city.

Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which just happened to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which just happened to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firm’s Judson Miner just happened to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers. In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks(Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit just happened to result in banks being blackmailed into approving subprime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which just happened to spread nationwide, and which just happened to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.

In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the “New Party,” which just happened to promote Marxism, and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist who just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system.

In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who just happened to be the gay choir director of Obama’s Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church, just happened to be murdered, and both murders just happened to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and just happened to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.

In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas just happened to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers just happened to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama just happened to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel “will never see a day of peace,” and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children’s dance whose performances just happened to include simulated beheadings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” and there has been “genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis,” and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.

In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull just happened to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hull’s sealed divorce records unsealed, which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce just happened to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he just happened to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.

U.S. physicist Tom Fife: Obama was groomed to be President by Soviet Communists

Tom Fife

I first wrote about Tom Fife (photo above) more than two years ago, in my post of May 24, 2010, “Obama, a Sleeper Agent for World Communism.”

Fife is an American businessman and physicist. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Fife, then a U.S. government contractor, wrote an essay claiming that in 1992 while he was visiting Moscow, a woman with undying allegiance to Soviet Communism (the Soviet Union had recently collapsed, on December 31, 1991) told him that a black man named Barack, born of a white American woman and an African male, was being groomed by communists to be, and would be elected, President of the United States.

Fife’s story just won’t go away. In an interview (below) with geopolitical analyst Jeff Nyquist, Fife amplified on his 2008 account. The woman specified that this black man Barack, whom the Soviets were grooming to be U.S. President, is himself “a Soviet,” that is, a communist. She also said  Barack was from Hawaii, educated in “Ivy League” schools, had been to New York, and was presently in Chicago.

Three years after Fife’s encounter with the woman in Moscow, in 1995, Barack Obama was chosen by Alice Palmer to succeed her in the Illinois State Senate. Palmer was an admirer of the Soviet Union and had attended the 27th Communist Party Congress in the Soviet Union. Palmer announced that Obama was her chosen successor in the Chicago home of Bill Ayer, a self-described communist and former terrorist of the Marxist Weather Underground.

Here’s the interview:

Maybe now we know why, on March 26, 2012, Obama made that cryptic remark to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Not realizing that his words would be picked up by live microphones, Obama told Medvedev  “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility,” and asked for Russia’s patience — for more “space” and “time”.

Maybe now we believe Alan Hulton‘s story, to which he had sworn in an affidavit. Hulton was the mailman for Bill Ayers’ parents for ten years. He once met Barack Obama, who was visiting the senior Ayers. When Hulton asked Obama what his plans were for the future, Obama declared in a manner as if this was something that had already been determined: “I am going to be president of the United States.”

Chinese government crushes protester to death with steamroller

A man in China resisted being forcibly “relocated” (evicted) from his farm land. So the vice mayor of his village simply had a steamroller crush him to death.

The evil Chinese government is censoring all news about this horrible incident, so I’m posting it here in spite of the sickening story and images. Please help me break through the Chinese Communist Party’s Internet firewall by re-posting this on your blogs and emailing it to your friends and families and encourage them to forward it to their e-lists.

FYI, despite what our panda-hugging government and media have been saying about China’s “capitalist” economic reforms, the reforms are confined to the cities where businesses are now privately owned. In the vast countryside, there is no private ownership of land (nor is there private land ownership in the cities)Peasants only have users’ right (usufruct) to farm the land, which is owned by the state in the name of the mythical “proletariat,” which turns out to be the Communist Party and government officials.

WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES

Paul Joseph Watson reports for Infowars.com, September 25, 2012:

A villager in northern China attempting to resist a forced government relocation by remaining on his land was brutally crushed to death by a road flattening truck on the orders of a Chinese government official.

The story, which was censored in China’s state controlled media, has caused outrage amongst users of Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, given its horrifying similarity to what happened to student protesters who were crushed to death by tanks during the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

The victim, He Zhi Hua, refused to accept a paltry payment from the government which has forcefully evicted Changsha Village locals in order to re-appropriate their land for commercial use.

When Hua began a protest by lying down on the spot through which construction vehicles had to pass, the local Vice Mayor ordered workers for the state-owned company to murder Hua by driving over his body with a huge road-flattening truck.

Shocking images show Hua’s pulverized brains and his mangled body in the aftermath of the state-sponsored execution.

Fearing unrest if the story got out to a wider audience, the government sent in 200 men to keep angry locals at bay and hide the remains of the body. The man’s family was offered a sum of money in order to keep quiet about the incident.

China is routinely rocked by riots staged by residents furious at the arbitrary theft of their land by the state, which under the Communist system claims that the government owns all land and that private property rights are non-existent. However, the state-owned media ensures that news of the protests does not reach a national audience.

In another similar case in Pan Jin City, when villager Wang Shi Jie tried to prevent workers hired by local government officials destroying his crops and confiscating his land before harvest, he was shot dead. When Jie’s father attempted to rush to his son’s aid, he was shot in the leg twice.

After the incident, hundreds of police officers were sent to dispose of the body and beat up villagers who complained about the man’s murder. The dispute started after it emerged that the agricultural land was being sold by the government to developers without the villagers having been notified.

And if you think this can’t happen here, you’re being naive.

Remember this commercial, “No Pressure,” made by Global Warming true believers for its 10:10 Campaign – a worldwide campaign exhorting us to reduce our carbon emissions by at least 10% in 2010. In the video, school children and adults who refuse to join 10:10 are blown up into bits, their blood and pieces of flesh spattering those nearby. This video/commercial is not a spoof. The people who put this together are serious and really really sick. Note that former X-Files actress Gillian Andersen (Scully) is one of the actors.

Then there’s Larry Grathwohl, a former FBI agent who infiltrated the Weather Underground (WU), a radical left group that originated in 1969 as a faction of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were founders of the WU. Both are Chicago pals of Obama.

The goal of the Weather Underground was to foment a violent overthrow of the U.S. government and replace it with a “dictatorship of the proletariat.” The clandestine organization instigated a series of terrorist bombings in the 1970s. Ayers and Dohrn were complicit in the conspiracy to bomb the office of California State Senator John Briggs. The two turned themselves in December 1980. Charges were dropped for Ayers; Dohrn received three years probation and a $15,000 fine. Both dispute their being labeled “terrorists” and remain unrepentant to this day.

Ayers and Dohrn: Then (l) and now (r)

In the video below, Grathwohl tells us how the members of the Weather Underground calmly made plans to kill an estimated 25 million Americans who they expected would resist “reeducation” after the WU had seized political power.

This is the mind of the radical Left, whether it’s Communist China, North Korea, the former Soviet Union, or the American Left.

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.

The first of Breitbart’s Obama college tapes

Before his sudden death on March 1, Andrew Breitbart was doing the job that the media failed to do in 2008 — investigating Obama.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month, Breitbart said he had obtained videos of Obama from his college days, which will reveal Barry during a time when he was meeting a “bunch of silver ponytails” — referring to Weather Underground terror group members Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. It was in the couple’s Chicago home that Obama’s political career reportedly was launched, and his ties to the two run deep. There’s been a solid argument made that Ayers ghost-wrote Obama’s highly acclaimed memoir, “Dreams from My Father.”

Breitbart vowed: “I’ve got videos – this election we’re going to vet him – from his college days to show you why … racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

Breitbart.com will be releasing one of Obama’s college videos — the one at Harvard Law School — this evening on Sean Hannity’s TV show.

Earlier today, however, video researcher Andrew Kaczynski released an edited version of the video. Joel Pollak issued this announcement on Breitbart.com, March 7, 2012, that Kaczynski’s video was “licensed from a Boston television station” and has been selectively edited–either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself.

The video shows a young, already arrogant Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, whom Breitbart.com calls “a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright” and about whom Breitbart.com “will be releasing significant information in the coming hours.”

This is what Wikipedia says about Derrick Bell [edited]:

Derrick Albert Bell, Jr. (November 6, 1930 – October 5, 2011)was the first tenured African-American professor of Law at Harvard University, and largely credited as the originator of Critical Race Theory.

Bell received an A.B. from Duquesne University in 1952 and an LL.B. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1957. After graduation, Bell took a position with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department, followed by a stint as an assistant counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, crafting legal strategies at the forefront of the battle to undo racist laws and segregation in schools.

In 1969, with the help of protests from black Harvard Law School students for a minority faculty member, Bell was hired to teach there. At Harvard, Bell established a new course in civil rights law, published a celebrated case book, Race, Racism and American Law, and produced a steady stream of law review articles.

In 1986, Bell staged a five-day sit-in in his office to protest the school’s failure to grant tenure to two legal scholars on staff, both of whom adhered to a movement in legal philosophy that claims legal institutions play a role in the maintenance of the ruling class’ position. The administration, not giving an inch, claimed substandard scholarship and teaching on the part of the professors as the reason for the denial of tenure, but Bell called it an unambiguous attack on ideology. Bell’s sit-in galvanized student support but sharply divided the faculty.

Bell reentered the debate over hiring practices at Harvard in 1990, when he vowed to take an unpaid leave of absence until the school appointed a female of color to its tenured faculty. Students held vigils and protests in solidarity with Bell with the support of some faculty. One of these students was U.S. president Barack Obama, who led a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Bell. Critics, including some faculty members, called Bell’s methods counterproductive, and Harvard administration officials insisted they had already made enormous advances in hiring.

To some observers, Bell’s lament about Harvard amounted to a call for the school to lower its academic qualifications in the quest to mold a diversified faculty on the campus.

Bell is arguably the most influential source of thought critical of traditional civil rights discourse.

In the 2008 presidential campaign, the media trumpeted Barack Obama as a “post-racial” president-to-be who will heal America’s racial wounds and division. This video from his Harvard Law School days shows that, far from being “post-racial,” Obama actually had cut his teeth on precisely  racialist political activism.

Update (March 9, 2012):

For a better description of Derrick Bell’s beliefs, see my post “Obama praised a rabid black racist.” Bell was nothing less than a virulent racist who wanted a race war.
