Obama Likes Tyrants and Dislikes America . . . and Here’s More Proof

By Andrew C. McCarthy

Posted on September 24, 2009 10:54 AM

Michael hits the nail on the head . . . and then comes this:

The Obama administration has notified Congress of the State Department’s intention to contribute $400,000 to foundations run by Muammar Qaddafi’s two children — $200,000 each for daughter Aisha and son Saif. Saif, you may recall, is the son who escorted the Lockerbie terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi home to a hero’s welcome in Libya after President Obama sternly “warned“ Qaddafi that there was to be no hero’s welcome.

Illinois Republican congressman Mark Steven Kirk (House Appropriations Subcommittee on State/Foreign Operations) has sent Obama a letter asking him to rescind the funding.

Could somebody please tell this president that this is not just Annenberg Foundation cash he’s passing out to his personal terrorist pals like Bill Ayers but American taxpayer dollars he’s doling out to the terrorist tyrant behind the murder — in just that one incident — of 270 people, including 189 Americans.

Just 40 months to go. God help us.

Obama’s mystery links to Gadhafi uncovered
Prez fails to call for dictator’s removal despite reports of attacks on citizens

Sen. Barack Obama with Rev. Jeremiah Wright
JERUSALEM – As pressure mounts on the White House to intervene to stop Moammar Gadhafi’s bloody crackdown in Libya, many commentators have been wondering why Barack Obama has been cautious in his criticism of the dictator after the U.S. president so fervently supported the removal from office of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.

But Gadhafi has been tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual adviser for more than 23 years.

The Libyan dictator also has financed and strongly supported the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. Obama has ties to Farrakhan and his controversial group.

So far, White House officials have called for an end to the violence but have seemingly ruled out any unilateral action in Libya. Despite Gadhafi’s reported ordering of massacres that reportedly have killed hundreds of civilians in recent days, Obama hasn’t called on Gadhafi to leave office.

Pressure has been mounting on Obama to take a tougher stand, with the chairmen of the House and Senate foreign relations committees calling on the White House to re-impose economic sanctions on Libya that were lifted in 2004.

But Obama has multiple close ties to activists who have had relationships with Gadhafi.

Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of Obama’s longtime Chicago church, went with Farrakhan to visit Gadhafi in 1984.

(Story continues below)

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Wright himself noted the trip could cause problems for Obama.

“When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gadhafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”

Farrakhan, a close friend and associate of Wright, has been financed by Gadhafi, including with a $5 million interest-free loan in 1985.

Later that year, Gadhafi spoke by satellite to Farrakhan’s Saviour’s Day Convention in Chicago, and reportedly told Farrakhan supporters he was prepared to provide weapons to a black army in the U.S. to destroy “white America.”

In October 1995, Gadhafi reportedly called Farrakhan with congratulations on the success of the Million Man March. Gadhafi was said to have assured Farrakhan that together “we will unite our capabilities and efforts to achieve this.”

Moammar Gadhafi

According to reports in 1996 from Libya’s news agency, JANA, Farrakhan and Gadhafi agreed to work together to mobilize “oppressed blacks, Arabs, Muslims and Red Indians” to help reshape U.S. foreign policy.

Gadhafi said that until his alliance with the Nation of Islam, “our confrontation with America was like a fight against a fortress from outside.”

He asserted his alliance with Farrakhan provides him with “a breach to enter into this fortress and confront it.”

Farrakhan went to Libya for multiple other events. He was the recipient in 1996 of the Gadhafi Human Rights Award, which came with a $250,000 prize. Farrakhan accepted the prize despite U.S. sanctions on Libya.

Obama tied to Nation of Islam

Wright and Obama reportedly attended the Million Man March on Washington, which was led by Farrakhan and other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton.

Rev. Willie Barrow, a member of the Obama campaign’s official Faith Outreach Team and an Obama superdelegate, is a close friend of Farrakhan’s and a staunch Nation of Islam supporter.

Farrakhan stated in a 2002 interview he met with Barrow to devise his Nation of Islam platforms.

Marxist activist Cornel West, an adviser to Farrakhan, also had been an adviser to Obama’s 2008 campaign and is a close Obama associate and personal friend.

During the period of Obama’s attendance at Wright’s Trinity United Church, which practices controversial Black Liberation Theology ideology, the Chicago church was openly allied with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Wright gave Farrakhan his 2007 Empowerment Award. Farrakhan delivered multiple guest lectures at the church.

Wright has been involved in Farrakhan initiatives and labeled him “one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st century” during a national address to the media in April at which Nation of Islam officials were invited guests.

Obama has appeared at least three times on the cover of Trumpet magazine, founded by Wright. The magazine, to which Obama last year granted a lengthy, exclusive interview, regularly hails Farrakhan.

Obama’s face was featured on the cover of a 2006 issue of Trumpet alongside Farrakhan’s image.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, a 2004 photo emerged of Obama’s wife, Michelle, posing with Farrakhan and Obama adviser Barrow at a woman’s luncheon for the Rainbow/Push Coalition for which Barrow serves as chairman emeritus.

In the picture with Michelle Obama is Khadijah Farrakhan, Louis Farrakhan’s wife.

Another Obama connection to supporters of Farrakhan comes from David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political strategist.

Although he is Jewish, Axelrod sits on the finance committee of St. Sabina, the Chicago Catholic parish that was led by controversial pastor Michael Pfleger, an outspoken Farrakhan supporter who hosted the Nation of Islam chief at his parish several times.

The Archdiocese of Chicago temporarily removed Pfleger from his duties at St. Sabina in 2008 following a well-publicized guest sermon at Trinity church in which Pfleger claimed Hillary Clinton cried in public because she thought being white entitled her to the Democratic presidential nomination.

Pfleger hosted Farrakhan at his church several times, including one May 2007 sermon that was Farrakhan’s first public appearance since he announced in 2006 he had been suffering from prostate cancer and was seriously ill.

According to reports, Pfleger spent hours with the Nation of Islam chief during his illness. Pfleger previously enlisted Farrakhan’s support for several of his initiatives, including an anti-gun protest in 2007.

Obama’s $400,000 Gift to Gaddafi Kids, Malta Turns Away Gaddafi Daughter’s Plane
February 24, 2011

Aisha Gaddafi, ‘Dubbed “The Claudia Schiffer of North Africa” in the Arab press’ – The Telegraph, Meet Gaddafi’s Girl – a chip off the old block

According to the U.K.’s Guardian, ‘Malta’ turned away a plane because Muammar Gaddafi’s daughter Aisha, 34, was on board. A very small, small world, the dictator’s daughter, Aisha Gaddafi, who defended a dictator, Saddam Hussein. According to the Guardian, a plane carrying the wife of another Gaddafi son, Hannibal, was refused permission to land in Lebanon.

Over in the U.S., President Barack Obama, breaking a four day vow of silence, ‘strongly condemned’ Libya’s crackdown of protesters. Over at the Washington Post, today’s editorial, Why was President Obama last to speak up on Libya?. Over here, we were wondering, why did Obama and his administration give two of Gaddafi’s eight kids close to a half a mil–funded by taxpayers–in 2009? Turns out the answer may have been less than six degrees to Obama’s old pal, former domestic terrorist turned professor Bill Ayers, Israel, Palestine, protests in Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Washington Post:

By late Wednesday only one major Western leader had failed to speak up on Libya: Barack Obama. Before then, the president’s only comment during five days of mounting atrocities was a statement issued in his name by his press secretary late last Friday, which deplored violence that day in three countries: Yemen, Libya and Bahrain. For four subsequent days, the administration’s response to the rapidly escalating bloodshed in Libya consisted of measured and relatively mild statements by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Administration officials explained this weak stance by saying they were worried about U.S. citizens, hundreds of whom were being extracted by ferry Wednesday afternoon. There were fears that the desperate Mr. Gaddafi might attack the Americans or seek to take them hostage. But the presence of thousands of European citizens in Libya did not prevent their government’s leaders from forcefully speaking out and agreeing on sanctions.

In July of 2010 American Thinker connected the dots between Obama and the Gaddafi kids. Four hundred thousand earmarked by the Obama administration, split up 50/50 for Aisha and Saif Gaddafi charities.

American Thinker:

Last year, right around the time Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi called Obama “our son,” Obama earmarked $400,000 for two Libyan charities. The money was divided between two foundations run by Gaddafi’s children; Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation, run by his son Saif, and Wa Attassimou, run by his daughter Aicha. What noble causes did our tax dollars potentially help support thanks to Obama’s generosity?

Funding of the ship Amalthea: The Amalthea sailed to Israel with the intent of breaking the Israeli blockade on Hamas. It carried aid for a pseudo humanitarian crisis and supporters who were said to be “keen on expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people in the plight amidst the siege imposed on Gaza.” The ship was funded by Saif Gaddafi’s charity, Gaddafi International Charity and Development Association. Obama’s friend, Bill Ayers, joined attempt #1 against Israel’s blockade on Hamas. Saif joined attempt #2. One has to wonder which of Obama’s friends will step up to the plate at attempt #3.

According to a report at Big Government not only was Bill Ayers involved so was Ayers’ wife, Bernadine Dohrn and Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans.

Big Government:

One year ago, Big Government reported the anti-American global left, led by Code Pink, traveled to Egypt to undermine the blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza.

President Barack Obama funder and Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans, accompanied by Obama’s Hyde Park friends and neighbors – the former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn – organized an inside-outside game of political theater to bring pressure on the Mubarak regime to allow the aid for Hamas to be delivered though Egyptian checkpoints.

On one hand, Evans and Code Pink lobbied Mubarak’s wife for assistance, as well as the U.S. embassy in Cairo. On the other hand, the group led hundreds of Western leftists in challenging the Egyptian government with boisterous street protests.

Code Pink was not shy about its support for Hamas. The group bragged that Hamas terrorists guaranteed their safety in Gaza.

At the same time, Code Pink had also allied itself with the Muslim Brotherhood. Code Pink took out banner ads on the Muslim Brotherhood’s official English language Web site asking jihadis to “join us in cleansing our country” of so-called war criminals which included former President George W. Bush and wife Laura.

Obama's actions continually link him to people and causes that the majority of Americans do not support.

I'd say. Terrorists, Islamofascists, black nationalists, and communists. 0bama is Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and Saul Alinsky all rolled into one Hate-America-First piece of turd.

I wonder how all the ‘touchy feely’, ‘hopey changy’ Liberals feel about them supporting dictators, terrorists, and radicals all over the world through their messianic prophet, Obama?

They must all be very proud. Maybe eventually, they will achieve the dictatorship they want so badly for America. Then we can all get shot at and bombed if we protest. Great!

I wish I could be surprised by all this. I wish I could expect that the mainstream news media would report it and be outraged.

But, sadly, any coverage it does receive will be of the “yes, but...” type where it’s spun that 1)Barry didn’t do it, it was some nasty Republican; 2)It was done to further some truly humanitarian cause; or 3)Anyone who questions Barry is a racist birther.

Would you mind providing a link to that Corner post?

While informational, this American Thinker post is rather confusing to read. I think it must be some kind of format problem...also, I can't get it to load on the AT site.

Would appreciate it. TIA.
