Another FreeRepublic Op-ed For the political season (#3 in a series)

Another FreeRepublic Op-ed For the political season (#3 in a series)<p>

This is a book report. Not a book report like you might construct for college course credit, a book report aimed at showing features, advantages, and benefits in reading carefully a condensation of vast research done by Jerome Corsi on one Barack Hussein Obama, Democratic Party candidate for President. And let‘s keep that fact ever in mind as the real Obama emerges through the pages of Corsi‘s book, <B>this is the Democrat choice for President.</B><p>

Title of the book is <I>The Obama Nation</I> and yes, it is a play on the word abomination. Jerome Corsi is an excellent writer and better researcher, and this book flows well even though the central figure of the book is, Barack <B>Hussein</B> Obama. I‘ve gotten into the habit of characterizing Obama as an empty suit. With Corsi‘s evidence now crashing around in my mind, it is obvious Obama is not an empty suit, he‘s much too dangerous for such a benign designation.<p>

Not since our own BKO‘s <I>Hell To Pay</I> have I looked forward with such eager anticipation to reading a non-fiction exposure of a major character in American politics. And Corsi certainly doesn’t disappoint! By the time a reader reaches the Conclusion section of this book, it is embarrassing to realize that so many of our fellow Americans have embraced this radical phantom constructed on cult of personality framework by one David Axelrod.<p>

In Jerome Corsi’s own words: “What I seek to prevent by writing this book is an Obama presidency that would represent nothing more than a repeat of the failed extremist policies since the 1960’s.”<p>

Also in Corsi’s own words: “My intent in writing this book, as was the case in co-authoring <I>Unfit for Command</I>, is to fully document all arguments and contentions I make, extensively footnoting all references … “ Folks, I counted 681 footnotes for ten chapters, and introduction and a conclusion, and an extensive cross-referencing index of twenty-three pages!<p>

Is this a Republican hit book? Hardly. Corsi is registered with the Constitutional Party. He has no racial animus, either, as shown by his past strong support for Ken Blackwell’s run for governor of Ohio. Corsi offers a strong disclaimer on page vx of his Preface.<p>

So, how can one characterize a book that exposes the history and inclinations of a Blackman nominated by the Democratic Party for the office of President? If you are a politically conservative American or even a moderate, this is an evisceration with precision. Not prejudice, precision. The following is directly from page 302. It is instructive of the precision maintained throughout the book, whether relating Obama’s connection to the thug Odinga in Kenya, or the Black Liberation Theology of Reverend Wright, the exhaustive objectivity results in precision:

“Obama will be beaten by detailed arguments that are well researched and fact based.<br>

This is why, for example, we took pains to make it clear Obama did <I>not</I> attend a madrassa when he was educated as a child in Indonesia. CNN was able to go to Indonesia and document fairly easily that there was no madrassa at the public school Obama attended. A madrassa, to be precise, is a particular kind of Islamic religious school.<br>

We were, however, able to prove that Obama had at least one year of instruction in Islam at the public school he attended in Indonesia, and we were able to prove that, in part, by reference to Obama’s own words. That is very different from attending a madrassa. We also refrained from claiming Obama is a Muslim because of that limited experience. We have carefully stated that Obama is the best authority on his religious beliefs and we will take him at his word.<br>

…<br>

Yet, if voters perceive that Obama tilts in his current politics toward Islam, that conclusion alone will be detrimental to Obama’s chances in the general election.<br>

Our argument is that Obama’s experience with Islam predisposes him to Islam in a way that is reflective of his political associates, his political advisors, and his specific policies regarding the Middle East. This is a very different argument than to claim Obama is a Muslim, something no one can prove one way or the other, except for Obama himself.”<p>

That portion of Corsi’s book comes in the Conclusion section. It is much more powerful to contemplate after having read the extensive connections Corsi makes with the Kenya political thug cousin, Odinga, the Middle East connections for monies funneled to Obama via Tony Rezko, the Black Liberation Theology connected to Nation of Islam, and the choice Obama made to join himself and his family to the Wright church spewing such beliefs for twenty years.<p>

The book is divided into three basic sections: Obama’s roots, The Making of a Radical Politician (the philosophical imperatives including immersion in Saul Alinsky and Frank Marshall Davis), and The Candidate is the Message (a well reasoned expose on the cult of personality Axelrod purposely fabricated to launch Obama past Hillary Clinton).<p>

From the beginning, we see that Corsi is a student of current media, launching the meat of his book with a YouTube video posted this Spring by a blogger. As I read the repeated words from Obama’s supposed private meeting in San Francisco with wealthy behind the scenes liberals where he characterized struggling Pennsylvanians as clinging to guns and religion, the Limbaugh and Hannity transmogrifications of those comments echoed in my head. And that is the problem Obama cannot overcome; his own elitism is exposed, he really believes himself to be above the masses, yet he cannot hold back derision for those he deems ‘subjects‘.<p>

If you are a political junkie, and want a full picture of the Barack Hussein Obama our mainstream media is desperately protecting, read Corsi’s book before casting your vote in November. Our Republic is at stake. We cannot afford an Obama Nation.

The material Corsi gives regarding the election in Kenya and the subsequent moslem violence against Christians and destruction of Christian churches, all endorsed by Odinga as a means to violently acquire power in the new government that he lost out on through elections is quite instructive of what we can probably expect from Obama’s camp should it appear he is going to lose to McCain. ‘Burn baby burn’ doesn’t even start to describe what this man’s threats could be should he not gain the highest office in the land. This is a dangerously deluded man, not an empty suit at all. He has proven he will play the race card and his next play could well be veiled threats of racial violence. Folks, power like this man now sees ahead does very bad things to some people. And this man is a product of Alinsky style community activism.

I am part-way through the book. One interesting sidelight in the chapter on Kenyan politics is that Dick Morris went there as a consultant to help Odinga win the 2007 election. The government found out and had him out of the country within 48 hours. I don’t recall hearing Dick boast of his Kenyan adventures on FNC.

That shocked me too. Morris is a snake of a different stripe. Then I recalled Bagala and Carvile injecting themselves into the Israeli elections ... and look at the cascade they caused that now Netanyahu must step in to stop.

Does Corsi address anything about Obama's trip to Pakistan in the 80's?

Obama would have only been 20-21 when he made this trip. He never mentioned it in either of his books.

Below from this link:Pakistan

According to his campaign staff, Mr. Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. He spent “about three weeks” there, Mr. Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton, said, staying in Karachi with the family of a college friend, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, but also traveling to Hyderabad, in India.

Mr. Obama appears not to have previously cited his travel in Pakistan in speeches during the campaign. In “Dreams from My Father,” he talks of having a Pakistani roommate when he moved to New York, a man he calls Sadik who “had overstayed his tourist visa and now made a living in New York’s high-turnover, illegal immigrant work force, waiting on tables.”

Mr. Obama, the campaign and his publisher have not provided any details about the identity of Sadik.

During his years at Occidental College, Mr. Obama also befriended Wahid Hamid, a fellow student who was an immigrant from Pakistan and traveled with Mr. Obama there, the Obama campaign said. Mr. Hamid is now a vice president at Pepsico in New York, and according to public records, has donated the maximum $2,300 to the Obama campaign and is listed as a fund-raiser for it.

Those 3 weeks in Pakistan will enable him to know how to handle all the issues involving Pakistan, India, or Afghanistan if he gets elected.

He seems to have used a lot of made-up names in Dreams from my father. Corsi identifies the high school friend he calls Ray--someone who was half-black and half-Japanese (with a Japanese surname). "Ray" has been in and out of prison for drug-related offenses. When he was released from prison after Obama was elected to the Senate, he phoned him hoping for some help--Obama told him to contact the appropriate agencies, and made sure his staff would intercept any further calls from Ray.

In the hope that folks will make an effort to post data from Corsi's book as they read it, here's a snippet on my pet issue:

Obama Nation, has a very damning section on Obama's demigoguing the issues we deem 'pro-life/anti-life'. Corsi highlights several points (pages 237 - 240):

1) On March 30, 2001 Obama was the ONLY Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would protect babies who survive late-term abortion

2) In 1997 Obama voted in the Illinois Senate AGAINST a bill designed to prevent partial birth killing of alive, sensing unborn children

3) Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell exploitation

4) Obama has consistently voted against requiring minors to notify their parents if they seek or obtain an out of state abortion

5) Obama is a zealous supporter of planned parenthood which operates the greatest percentage of their killing clinics in black and under privileged neighborhoods

6) Obama has told Planned Parenthood that if he is elected president he will prevent opponents of Roe v Wade from being appointed to the Supreme Court

7) Obama has consistently ignored the FACT of the great harm abortion has done to the African-American communities

That was one of the more disturbing passages for me as well. If he makes it to the General election and loses can we expect some kind of odd, extra-constitutional "power-sharing" deal/offer coming from Obama to keep the violence in check?

Post #2 has the corrected version and a few have found the html codes useful when copying for pasting elsewhere. I was hoping to have a freeper ‘private’ discussion when enough folks have read the book. With the dem release of their supposed refutation, it would be fun to slam their idiocies. I downloaded the dem document and found that whomever wrote it must think syntax is a government scheme to raise revenues. The literacy level of leftists is dropping precipitously as the decades roll by ... I suppose we should smile when contemplating what their drugs habits have done to their vacuous brains.

There is a significant difference though: Carter was his own man, whereas Obama is picked by ‘someone’ because of his inexperience and the ability of Pelosi and Reid to direct him for the next four years. Jimmah couldn’t get the democrat controlled Congress to do anything he wanted to do, basically, so he was in a nadversarial relationship whereas Obama will be in a subserviant role. Sad that black people don’t see that coming. There are so many good black candidates the dnc could have selected for the run, but they settled upon a leftist Marxist still-wet-behind-the-ears jsut because he has a charisma with the ‘little people’. Chanbge is Alinsky’s mantra for community change, and ‘hope’ is the asinine rat mantra ... neither term has any depth other than Marxism behind it.

Wouldn’t surprise me, the democrats are all about cobtradicting themselves ... he said tonight that he would not favor a federal marriage amendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman. Doing just the opposite on their main empowewrment scheme would be par for their ‘coarse’.

Is Obama against the federal marriage amendment because he doesn’t want to offend the gays, or because he doesn’t want to offend Muslims?

Because he’s been coached to oppose it. If he gets elected, the Pelosi-Reid power structure will be running the country ... Barry is too lazy to do more than rubber stamp what he’s told to support. How long has he been the chairman of a major committee and it has yet to even meet ONCE!
