It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. It can also be worth several million votes. The above picture was taken in 2005 by Askia Muhammad:
It was spiked:
Photojournalist Askia Muhammad released a photo this week showing former President Barack Obama and the controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan from Obama's years as a state senator -- and the photographer revealed Thursday that the Congressional Black Caucus had pressured him for more than a decade to keep it hidden.
Muhammad told the Trice Edney News Wire last week that he believed that the image absolutely would have made a difference in the 2008 presidential campaign had it been made public. The image taken in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting on Capitol Hill showed then-Senator Obama, a young Democrat from Illinois, smiling side-by-side with Farrakhan.
Muhammad told Fox News Tucker Carlson that the same day he snapped the photo, the CBC contacted him.It gets worse. obama was thick with the Nation of Islam:
A staff member from the black caucus called me and said we have to have the picture back, and I was kind of taken aback. And we talked a couple of times on the phone after that, and I said Okay, I will give the picture back to Minister Farrakhans chief of staff, he said on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
He added that after he gave the original copy to Farrakhans staff, he kept his own copy but remained quiet.
Muhammad also said that Obama had, at some point, people from the Nation of Islam working on his staff and in his offices.Farrakhan has quite the history of antisemitism:
In fact he had people from the Nation of Islam working on his staff and in his office in the Chicago, his Senate staff. The members of the Nation of Islam helped him in his Senate campaign and on the South Side of Chicago.

There is lots of news ignored and hidden for political reasons. Lots of it could have made a difference!
What was, was, what is, is...
This is a soft start to the unveiling of the true Barack Hussein Obama. Umm Umm Umm.
With McCain the 2008 crisis and Bush’s Iraq war I wonder this picture would have changed anything
Look at the bright side. If Hillary was President in 2008 I think the world would have been worse off today. Obama behaved as a communist academic would have. Hillary made the Gambino family look like the Von Trapps.
It would have changed nothing. His minister screaming G Da America while he sat there didnt hurt Obongo and neither would this picture. The Power of having the MSM totally behind can keep you protected from almost anything.
Nothing new here. Just a textbook example of how the Media protects Dems.
We knew back then they were butt brothers
Didn’t they even live in the same hood with Billy and Bernie?
Farrakhan has quite the history of antisemitism:
He calls non-blacks white devils. He’s much more than anti-Semitic.
Everyone knew Hussein was a Marxist, America-hating, racist piece of s*** and over half the country voted for him anyway.
America got exactly what it deserved.
Would have changed nothing.
If Reverend Wright couldn’t sway anyone, this picture certainly couldn’t.
Waste of time.
You are right. If his middle name didn’t stop anyone after 9/11, neither would anything else.
Wouldnt have made a bit of difference. Just look at “reverend” Wright.
If anything, this pic would have turned out MORE voters, especially the anti-Semites. White people wouldn’t have cared, they were desperate for someone to [LOL] heal race divisions and [LOL] end all wars and [LOL] give them the virtue-signaling gesture of their [LOL] non-racist lives.
When I saw obama in Providence, RI, before the ‘RAT convention, he was surrounded by, and being protected by, the fruit of islam thugs. Media was completely silent on this.
Would have changed nothing.

I certainly agree with that. Obama was mostly lazy. Given the choice between pushing hard for an agenda and golfing, Obama mostly chose golfing. And I can’t see Obama ordering anyone wacked for standing in his way.
But Hillary is a different animal. She is ruthless, and entirely corrupt.
