Obama to Vets and Military Families: **** You! I'm Standing by Jodie Evans and Code Pink
Thursday, July 3, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/02/2008 10:32:22 PM PDT by kristinn

Democratic presidential presumptive Sen. Barack Obama (IL) met with his terrorist supporting fundraiser, Jodie Evans, at a $5 million Hollywood fundraiser held last week at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion on Tuesday, June 24.

In what can only be described as a big middle finger to the veterans and military families who have urged Obama to renounce Evans, Obama met with Evans and was photographed with her at the fundraiser.

Evans is co-founder of the leftist anti-American group Code Pink. She and Code Pink have endorsed the terrorists in Iraq and have sent over $600,000 in cash and humanitarian aid to "the other side" in Fallujah.

Evans said in an interview last month on June 3 that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had a 'valid argument' for attacking America on Sept. 11, 2001.

When Obama launched his presidential campaign in February 2007, he turned to Jodie Evans, who had just returned from Cuba as a guest of the Castro government where she was protesting against America, to co-host his first big Hollywood fundraiser. He also tapped Evans to bundle between $50,000 and $100,000 for his campaign. Evans personally gave the legal maximum, $2300, to Obama's campaign.

A video posted at Indybay.org shows Evans' fellow co-founder of Code Pink, Fidel Castro groupie Medea Benjamin, describing in great detail Evans' meeting with Obama last week:

Note, Benjamin describes the meeting as if she were an eyewitness, but she doesn't say whether she was there with Evans)

"Last night Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans was at a Hollywood bash for Barack Obama. And it was pretty interesting because there was Jodie going up to get her picture taken with Barack Obama. And I don't know if you've seen but some of these right wing groups have been trying to say that Barack Obama is really a communist because he gets money from people like Jodie Evans.

"So Jodie went up to shake his hand and the first thing he said to her without her saying anything is, "I know you Jodie, and Code Pink. And I know that you want me to end this war and bring all the troops home and I am going to do that."

"And he said, "I know that you want there to be no permanent bases in Iraq and I want that too."

"And she said,"But we don't trust you because you just put these policy advisors who are leftovers from the Clinton administration who are not antiwar."

"He said, "Don't worry, I have other advisors and I want to end this war in Iraq."

"And then she said, "But we're worried because you aren't standing up against the FISA bill and for our rights not to be illegally spied on."

"And he said, "I am going to vote against that bill."

"Of course we wanted him to do more, we wanted him to filibuster but he's not willing to do that. She pushed him on that.

"But I bring this up because we have the ability to push from the inside and the outside. And its being right here at this kind of place and places like this around the country that are the antidote to the people that are pushing Barack Obama to be quote centrist, which means a warmonger.

"So we have to keep this fight up. Not just because we want to see this Marine recruiting station closed. But because we want this message to reverberate in the presidential elections and the congressional elections.

"We want Nancy Pelosi to hear it. We want Barack Obama to hear it. We want all of those who are in power now and might have even more power come November to know that we are serious about ending this occupation and this war."

Jodie Evans' record as an anti-American activist is well-known. She travels the world, meeting with the likes of Hugo Chavez and representatives of the so-called Iraqi resistance. In 2005, she had this to say about the terrorists killing and maiming American troops:

We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. The Iraqi people are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies.

Barack Obama has no problem meeting with her, accepting her money and enlisting her aid in his campaign.

Whether he does exactly as she wants when she wants is beside the point. The point is Evans has the blood of American soldiers on her hands--and Obama embraces her without reservation. And he wants to be commander-in-chief.

OBAMA: “I can no more disown Jodie Evans and the Code Pinko traitors than I could throw my racist white granny under the bus!”

“wait, granny, is that you down there? Who threw you under my campaign bus?”

I wouldn't be surprised if no photos exist and it was a complete media blackout. That way, commentators like Charles Krauthammer, Laura Ingraham or Michelle Malkin won't have any photographic evidence to back up their discussions.

Notice how Obama's meeting with Code Pink hasn't even been mentioned on the TV or newspapers? It's because both Obama and his media goons know that such a controversial meeting would be divisive and detrimental to his campaign.

I also know that any controversial meeting conducted by McCain will be broadcasted all over the place as the media attempts to divide his camp and audience.

The media is nothing but a pro-Obama collective that manipulates our reality, steamrolls the opposition and shapes the election.

Incidentally, Obama recently pulled some more secretive BS with his "closed door" meeting with the racist Congressional Black Caucus.

Look, I'm not a big McCain fan, but this last week, while McCain was in Columbia where the miraculous rescue of the hostages took place, Barack Obama was “taking advantage of McCain's absence” by giving all these grandiose speeches proclaiming his patriotism and also trying to redefine it, so it fits who is.

All I have to say to Obama is, “Little man, if ya gotta say it, you ain't got it.”

If this is true, why hasn’t she been charged with aiding the enemy?

Great job, kristinn! It does sound like Suzy was standing right there when this conversation took place. Not surprising in the least, but given the San Fran “bitter guns and religion” remarks from Barry, I'd say his words here are closer to his real truth than any of his recent flip-flop speeches. He will gut the military, he will destroy Iraq, he will surrender in the GWOT. Barry is bad news for our country, just look at who he associates with...

I sent this posting out to a bunch of people I know, along with the following commentary:

Hi Everyone,

I normally don't send out emails like this to people I know, but this came to my attention today.

For those of you who don't know, Code Pink is the organization that (among other things) gave money to forces in Fallujah that ended up killing our Soldiers and Marines. While gravely injured military personnel lay in beds inside Walter Reed, they and their families have had to view the activities of Code Pink who have protested outside Walter Reed for the last four years with hateful signs like "Enlist to Die for Halliburton" and so on. I have seen this with my own eyes outside the hospital. It should be a place of healing, not protest. I know this fellow Kristinn who compiled and wrote this, and he is completely reliable.

Those of you who know me realize I don't make any bones about where I stand with organizations such as Code Pink and the people within them. Obama is a politician, and as such, is expected to meet, greet and woo the votes of people that I occasionally disagree with. But as a prospective Commander in Chief, he should not be interacting with these people at all. Even pandering for votes should have its limits.

Remember this between now and November when Barack Obama touts his support for our men and women in uniform. Please remember that he supports organizations like Code Pink and the people in them, and solicits money, support and votes from them. Remember it. Our military personnel have to endure low pay, long separations and dangerous, life threatening work to serve on our behalf.

So, in the next four months, when you hear Barack Obama say that he supports the military, remember this, and ask yourself if he means what he says, or if he is just angling for your vote. You have the right to vote for whom you choose, but understand who you vote for.

We lost 51 men killed in the fight for Fallujah, and 425 were wounded.

Code Pink GAVE the forces that fought our men $600,000 to use as they saw fit. If you think that this money was used for "humanitarian purposes", remember, these are people that used ambulances to move militants and ammunition. They have used the corpses of people and animals filled with explosives to kill our troops. These same types of people have even stooped so low as to use a handicapped teenager with Downs Syndrome as an unwitting human bomb. They weren't going to use that money to buy dried milk for infants.

If you think this is important, please forward this on to anyone you know that might be interested.

In the account below, read the comments below that Barak Obama made to Jodie Evans (As related by Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink)

Since McCain won't lay the wood to Barak Hussein, he needs to follow my advice of over a month ago.
