Skip to comments.Obama File 80 Michelle and Barack's Black Panther Mentor
Posted on 07/28/2009 1:54:21 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
US President Obama has waded into a controversy over the arrest, in his own house of black Harvard academic Henry Louis Gates.
Why would Obama risk a public backlash defending this man and criticising the police?
Well it turns out that Obama regards Gates as a friend and they have several acquaintances in common on the black left.
Gates co-wrote two books with Obama's "comrade", Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) member Cornel West. Gates is also close to another DSA supporter who Obama once shared a DSA organized forum with-academic William Julius Wilson.
But more interestingly Gates' lawyer Charles Ogletree is a long time friend and mentor to both Michelle and Barack Obama.
It also turns out that Ogletree was a hard core radical with roots in the Maoist influenced Black Panthers movement. It also seems that Ogletree is still a militant leftist and is still called on by the Obamas for advice.
In 1970, Charles Ogletree enrolled at Stanford University near San Francisco, then a major center of black activism. Ogletree became a campus radical, organizing an Afrocentric dormitory and editing a campus Black Panthers newspaper called The Real News. He also traveled to Africa and Cuba with student activist groups. In 1973 Ogletree was president of the radical Black Student Union.
Ogletree's first interest in the law came when he attended the trial of Black Power activist and then Communist Party USA member Angela Davis.

Can’t speak for everyone, but it’s clear to me that obama has huge holes in his past - He has not produced his original birth certificate, his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records , files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and his adoption records. We don’t know who paid for his college or law school educations. But if we stitch this together by the people he acknowledges associating with during different periods of his life, one can come to only one conclusion: he is the best Communist this country has ever seen - and he’s president. Folks, Lenin is laughing in his grave.
WOW! WOW! Thanks for posting/linking.

What a wicked web of criminals...and Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is a member of their board of directors.
Watch out majormaturity, here come the anti-birthers!! Three...two...one...
They think everything is hunky dory, nevermind that my president had to show every bloomin’ scrap of paper from his past and then they STILL tried to forge documents on him.
If we don’t have more guts than this, we deserve the gulag we’re being sent to but my grandchildren don’t!!
I’m glad you find this info useful. Keep up the fight against the Obamanation.
BUMP! BUMP! (and a belated WELCOME ABOARD! katiekins1)

Ogletree claims to have mentored mentored both Michelle and Barack Obama during their time at Harvard. According to Ogletree the Obama's have called on him for advice since that time.
By 1986 Ogletree was director of Harvards Introduction to Trial Advocacy workshops, where students were taught that law can be an instrument for social and political change . . . a tool to empower the dispossessed and disenfranchised . . . and a means to make the privileged more respectful of differences.
Courtesy ping. Not sure if you have the connect-the-dots network in link at post #2 on this thread...the Henry Louis Gates, Jr. connection to the Sandlers and their culture of corruption/contributions back to Barack, Pelosi, etc.
Thanks for your work.
Great info....forwarded on to the FB-List!!
Another BTTT since the beerfest is tomorrow. More insight into...Who is this elitist POS race-baiter Henry Louis Gates Jr.?
Thanks for the ping.
No, I didn't have anything on Gates. I haven't had much time lately to look into him. Interesting piece at the link in post 2. I'll check it out when I have time.
