Who was the 12 year old? I missed that
Thank you A-G!
Don't forget the Anti-American slob who makes bad movies
"What does his fsther's past have to do with him? If your father is a Muslim, then you must be labelled a Muslim even if you practice another religion? Is Islam a race? Unless the columnist can show that Barack himself is a Muslim who is pretending to be Christian (not his father, siblings, etc.) , then this is silly. The goat herder lie is the only one that is interesting to me, sort of like Edward's "son of a mill worker" claim when his father was the manager."
I'd like to know if his family owned(s) slaves and if he benefited from affirmative action. I would like to see the end of A.A. and think it bad enough that people who's ancestors were never slaves benefit from it. If his ancestors ever owned slaves, and he benefited from A.A., that, well, if I said what I'm thinking I'd be band.
Unfortunately, so do SUBSTANTIATED ones with this Stalinist media.
He has an impressive resume. Special Forces. Lawyer. Senatorial aide. Activist.
No he was too young to be sent by "President Nixon" in 1968.
How are we associated with him? We are simply amusedly commenting on these allegations. It is nice to see Obama attacked by a fellow Lefite rather than a "businessman associated with Karl Rove", lol.
I posted during the Dem convention--forget what thread--that Obama's father was an African Muslim.
He obviously comes from a wealthy African family. His portrayal of his father as a goatherd was disingenuous to say the least. Yes, he could have actually helped to heard goats, in the context of being a wealthy landowner's son. However, portraying him as a goatherd suggests a far more lowly and humble origin.
I don't know this writer/reporter, but I think it is interesting and probably true. That Obama has lied is obvious without this post/story because his actions and voting record as posted and written about earlier do not fit.
This is presented as allegations, not a MM documentary of truth.
If Durbin is your Sen. perhaps you can answer a question I have had for a long time. Why does IL send this man back to the Senate? He talks like a complete off the wall nutcase liberal. I mean, his assertions (accusations) of the Repubs and Bush are ludicrous.
You are a poet,
and didn't know it!
Oh.............but yes you knew!
Glad he's gone.
We just got to keep a look-out for those rats!
The Wexler kid, Ilana Wexler. Among her other wit & wisdom, she dissed Vice President Cheney.
I missed it to; I was only able to read it.
[AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED: Text version below transcribed directly from audio]
My name is Ilana Wexler. I'm 12 years old, and I am the founder of "Kids for Kerry."
Kids for Kerry is a grassroots organization of kids that support John Kerry, want to help their futures, and get active in politics...
...When our Vice President had a disagreement with a Democratic senator, he used a REALLY BAD word.
If I said that -- If I said that word, I would be put in a "time-out."
I think he should be put in a time-out...
...Kids need -- Kids need positive -- Kids need positive role models in politics. And our Vice President deserves a longgggggg time-out.
JP, please see #316!
Good question. I guess we don't ... yet.
"Man o Man..these democrats just can't help but keep the lies coming....."
The flood of lies out of their mouths has successfully deceived 1/3 of the people. They have set their sights to that 1/3 in the middle of the road. Those who have no ability to determine "RIGHT" from "WRONG", waiting around to see who the winner will be.
Hanoi Kerry would drag his kids w/him when he knew the press was looking for a statement. When the questions came he bowed out saying he had an appointment and would point to the kids.
Liberals are divisive by nature! I say the good Illinois FReepers should host a pig roast and invite Obama for a pork sandwich, then expose his Islamofascist ass!
WOW. Hussein eh ? Plus the last name is too close to Osama. Coincidence ? I think not.
JP thanks for the ping to this story. Any and all info. on Obama and his Muslim ties need to be exposed. This so called "Christian", does not have the values or views to match that claim.
British East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania & Uganda) was/is a mixture of Christian & Muslim. I should know, I lived in Tanzania from 1971-72.
Even if the Obama family had money, the kids would still have been sent to the 'shambas' (farms) to work. To this day families' wealth is measured in livestock.
Yes, the Mau Mau was a terrible time in the struggle for Kenyan independence. Both the British & the Mau Mau committed atrocities & approx 4000 people died, 32 of whom were white settlers. But the Mau Mau was mainly a Kikuyu (the majority tribe) secret society, not Luo.
If anyone is interested in a quick history lesson of Kenya, this is quite good:
Obama bin Lyin' ?
Just as a clarification, Barak is the name of one of the judges who ruled Isreal between the time of Joshua and King Saul.
Barak was instructed by the Prophetess Deborah to raise an Army against the Canaanites. (Who had ruled Israel for forty years.) He says he will only go if she will be at his side. Deborah agrees to go, but tells Barak he will have to share his glory with a women. This happens when the Canaanite General Sisera escapes from battle. He seeks refuge in the tent of Heber. Jael, Hebers wife, gives Sisera milk to drink and he falls asleep. As he is sleeping Jael drives a nail in his head.
The victory song of Deborah and Barak is recorded in Judges Chapter 5. Israel is at peace for forty years. Barak is listed as one the "Heros of Faith" in Hebrews Chapter 11.
The name Barak is of particular interest to me as it is the name of my Great Great Grandfather. Who, by the way, was a Scotsman and the men in his family were all given biblical names.
Durbin is a butt buddy of the Chgo machine, Crook County carries da ball
Thank you for your double alert, when Keyes becomes Senator, he will know how someone from Texas helped get him in ;)
Harold Ford Jr
That is EXACTLY who he reminded me of!
Black Dem Socialist
Yep, Ford and Obama!
radical muslim activist Sen. Barack Obama (D-Chicago)

Obama bin Lyin' "Hussein"
Obama has spent a lifetime running from his family heritage and religious heritage. Would his father have given his son a Koranic name if the father was not a devout Muslim? Obama's stepfather was also a Muslim. Obama will be the first Muslim-heritage senator; he should be proud of that fact. There is nothing to be ashamed of in any of the three great Abrahamic religions.
"Fiction: Obama Senior was a harmless student 'immigrant' who came to the United States only to study. Fact: Obama was part of one of the most corrupt and violent organizations in Africa: the Kenyatta regime. Obama's father ran back to Kenya soon after the British left. It is likely Obama's father had Mau Mau sympathies or connections, or he would not have been welcomed into the murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists. I believe Obama's secret shame at his family history of rape, murder and arson is what actualizes him. Our research is not yet complete. We are seeking to examine British colonial records. Our investigation to date has drawn on information on three continents.
This bothers me, still. I wonder what influence Obama's family might have on him, especially considering that if elected he would have access to our nation's deepest security secrets.
Me: If his mother married two Muslim men and Obama is hiding his Muslim background, that is legitimate news.
You: It wouldn't be news to those who bother to read post #70.
I have been in contact with several Jewish voters in Illinois and, despite the newspaper article you cite, Obama's Muslim background is NOT well known. It makes them uncomfortable when they hear about it.
I agree that there a thousand reasons to vote against Obama. However, if he has Muslim or pro-Arab sympathies that he is hiding, that would be a legitimate reason too.
For many Jewish voters, who normally vote Democratic, this would be a deciding issue and it is a legitmate issue to bring up.
It has to be publicized better.
There is not a religious test to any office or public trust, but there should be a personal responsibility to vote for those who a wise. Christians believe that all wisdom comes from God. It is be wise to vote for those who truly fear God and are learned in the truths of Christ
I agree that this is relatively weak stuff now. Time will tell if it's an early indicator of a more serious phony streak.
I'm pretty sure I missed this one the first time, so here's a big ol' better-late-than-never BUMP.
the democrats myth machine made him into the new tiger woods on capital hill.
His father was a farmer
He says his father herded goats
Hmm... I'll bet there were goats on the farm
He's a muslim.
Some of his relatives may have been unsavory.
He avoids his relatives.
On the surface, this appears to be much ado about nothing.
I'm not getting excited yet.
It will be interesting to see a third party report on this. If he is indeed concealing aspects of his background it is only important in that it is a reflection of charecter....I really do not care if he is a muslim or not, non-practicing or otherwise. But if he will mislead you on that, he will do it on other much more important things
I have Keyes personal number - have spoken with his personal secretary for years - never one returned call from him. So calling him will do squat.
Bookmarking even though it's an old thread. Times change, and study is required.
I'll have to hear a lot more before I bite this hook.
Hmm let's see... He hides his religion, His dad was involved in the mob, wild youth...HE IS THE NEW KENNEDY!!!!
