Barack Obama Couldn’t Pass a Routine Background Investigation
North Star Writers Group ^ | October 10, 2008 | Gregory D. Lee

Posted on 10/10/2008 4:46:11 PM PDT by Kaslin

A while back, radio talk show host Michael Savage brought up the notion that Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama couldn’t pass a background investigation to become an FBI special agent.

He doesn’t know how right he is.

Sen. Barack Obama wouldn’t pass a routine government background investigation, not only to become an FBI agent, but a police officer as well. If he were a soldier, his background would preclude him from obtaining a security clearance. He wouldn’t even qualify to be a support person in a federal agency, such as secretary, for that matter. His past cocaine usage disqualifies him from being a DEA agent.

I’m confused by Bill Ayers. If he admits now to attempted murder, the statue of limitations has run out on the charge? Or was he ever charged?

Bombing people’s homes is attempted murder. Or near it. Right?

He admits it now, isn’t that still a crime? I don’t get it at all.

"Personally I like my presidents to not associate with known criminals, be drug-free for a lifetime, have unquestioned integrity and be able to pass a simple background investigation."

I agree on all counts, with exception to the "drug-free for a lifetime" comment. I wonder if this former DEA agent has drank a cup of coffee or used tobacco.

Isn’t it amazing? Obama couldn’t get a security clearance in the military but he can be put in command of the military. Our country is filling up with fools so fast it’s crazy.

The act of constructing and setting off a bomb probably brings federal charges in itself.

Obama couldn’t pass a routine background check for a job in a law firm because he won’t release his academic records. I think it’s because he was a marginal student at best and that all this positioning of him as an intellectual giant would be destroyed. He probably only got into Columbia and Law School because of connections.

Why are candidates not vetted when running for office, at least to see if they are constitutionally qualified to run for office?

Reminds me of the clown set that Clinton brought with him. A close associate high in the security area said the same about them. In addition, I also remember stores told me by folks in certain areas that they simply did not let the Clinton staff know about everything - because they did not trust the secrets to be kept.

Obama and his minions will make the Clintons look like patriots in comparison.

So you’re suggesting United States Senators are not subjected to FBI background investigations, or routine background investigations to serve in high office?

I am confident they are. Could be wrong though.

However, I’d go one step further.

Any government official, elected or not, at every level, should not only undergo pre employment back ground investigation, but these investigations should be on-going, including annual financial background investigations.

In addition, they should all be subjected to random drug tests...Just as the little guys down at Home Depot and others places are subjected to.

Furthermore, there should be no closed door meeting with ANYONE in government, unless national security is the issue. All meetings outside of of national security issues should be recorded and video tapped and made public upon demand.

Good. Then maybe they will solve the three murdered members of Wright's church, with some help from Barry.

It could be that the DEA has specific disqualifications when it comes to past drug use...that would be interesting to look up. I could be wrong, but I think the past drug use guidelines are stricter in some agencies than others, such as the FBI vs. the CIA or Defense.

If he is elected, Obama will go down in history as the most successful communist mole ever. Nobody even comes close. And Ayers is his handler.

You raise a great question. Here’s my take. The WU literally declared war on the US govt. They bombed govt. buildings etc. People were killed. The FBI treated it like a wartime situation in some cases. Like they were chasing Nazis in WW2. They might have taken some shortcuts with some wiretaps, because it was a “wartime” situation, more than a mere criminal case like bank robbery. Logical, right?

But lo, some liberal commie symp JUDGE threw it out, coming to the rescue of Ayers, due to the wiretap technicality.

With a perp that literally declared war on the US govt, and set bombs!

You are. Not only are CongressCritters not subject to such BI's, they are allowed to see anything they wish, no matter how highly classified. There are "gentleman's agreements" that certain things will only be shown to certain subcommittees, but any 'critter can ask to see anything he/she wants, and they must be shown it.

I served when Red Ron Dellums was in Congress, so the issue came up during various "in briefs" to various "compartments".

GOOD GRIEF. I had to produce valid birth certificates, 2 proofs of residence, and all immunization records to get my kids enrolled in school!!! How on earth does one get to run for POTUS without producing those records FIRST. FIRST—before being allowed to be called a candidate.

Yes, apparently one does not even have to present an official copy of one’s birth certificate to run. Why do we have a Federal Elections Commission, whatever?

JIHAD CANDIDATE 2
A Story About a Man Applying for a Job
The Jihad Candidate II, Rich Carroll

Imagine for a few moments that you are the human resources director of a major multi-billion dollar corporation. You are sitting in your large, luxurious office when you receive a phone call from the Chairman of the Board of Directors.

He tells you that the board is considering a candidate for a high-level executive position. He advises you to complete a thorough background investigation and have it to him within 10 days.

You immediately call the private detective agency you have used for years and give them the name and address of the prospective candidate, along with the deadline for a high level security clearance.

Your next move is to call your assistant to your office, giving him/her the candidate’s personal information along with instructions to “do your standard beginning background checks.”

Preliminary findings begin landing in your fax machine on the third day:

* Your candidate has used more than one name.
* His original birth certificate is unavailable.
* He was mentored during his youth by a high level communist in Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis.
* You receive a 3 page dossier on Frank Marshall Davis.
* You also learn the candidate was proctored into an elite Eastern private university by a middle eastern Muslim, Khalid al-Mansour.
* You receive a short dossier on Khalid al-Mansour.
* You learn the candidate has terrorist organization “Nations of Islam” employees on his current staff, and one of his advisors is a member of the global terrorist group “Muslim Brotherhood.”

On day four, you receive in the mail from the security agency two books the candidate has written:

* You read both books, highlighting the anti-American, anti-white racist passages.
* You note the admissions of drug use.
* You also receive in the packet a copy of the bitter anti-white thesis his wife wrote as a college undergraduate.
* You receive a 4 page fax on the candidate’s relative, Raila Odinga, who is connected with brutal Muslim politics in Africa, and background information on the candidate’s estranged father who was part of Kenya’s most corrupt regime.

The fifth day brings to your special delivery mail the complete background on Bill Ayers; his association with your candidate, his FBI criminal record, and a copy of the book “Rules for Radicals” written by communist Saul Alinsky:

* You are advised your candidate used tactics from “Rules for Radicals” at his previous employment.
* You are advised the candidate’s wife used an excerpt from this book during a recent speech.
* You receive by fax, a background on A.C.O.R.N. and an alert that this group is being watched by the U.S. Department of Justice and other state and local law enforcement agencies.
* You learn your candidate is endorsed by every Muslim terrorist organization on Earth; that he holds Muslim beliefs.
* His friend, Louis Farrakhan, is head of Nations of Islam.

* You learn that the candidate’s pastor met with global terrorist Mohmmar Gaddafi in Libya, along with their mutual friend and anti-American Louis Farrakhan.
* You receive printed transcripts of his pastor’s anti-White, anti-American “sermons” and are advised your candidate has been close personal friends with this “pastor” for two decades.
* Your candidate has referred to this radical pastor as his “personal spiritual advisor,” and in fact, the title of one of your candidates memoirs was inspired by a line from this pastor’s “sermons.”

In your fax machine on the sixth morning is a file on one Tony Rezko:

* His friendship, associations and business transactions with your candidate, as well as high level “people” of middle eastern origin, and his federal conviction.

You will spend most of day seven compiling a file on the candidate, TheObamaFile, complete with footnotes and cross references.

* Additional information is arriving regarding the candidate’s friends and acquaintances during college.
* You learn that he did not run with a mainstream crowd, but chose radicals and communist agitators for his social group.

The morning of the eighth day has arrived and you and your assistant have placed a small mountain of background information into manageable “piles” - including photographs of the candidate’s family in Africa, he and George Soros (including a brief file on the Soros “Open Society Institute”), photos of the candidate and Louis Farrakhan and anti-Israel Arafat advisor Edward Said.

You begin to outline and write your “Summary Evaluation” to the Chairman of the Board of Directors:

* This candidate has a tissue thin work experience resume.
* He has not managed large groups of personnel, departments, material, or P&L statements.
* This candidate’s own writing exhibits a deep-seeded anger and resentment towards people of the Caucasian race over the issue of slavery.
* His emotional gravitas is centered upon his African heritage, and his belief that the white man is responsible for global poverty and unequal sharing of wealth.
* The candidate’s personal associations since childhood have been mostly with radical African Americans, Muslims, and communists; those who harbor anger towards The United States of America.
* Particularly disturbing is his lengthy relationship with Bill Ayers, an unrepentant Weatherman radical who bombed government buildings and abdicated the overthrow of the United States.
* Given the current global situation of nearly twelve thousand Muslim acts of terrorism since 911, it is disturbing to find his close associations with Muslim groups, MAFO2008.com.
* I have highlighted passages in both books and find one particularly disturbing: “Should the political winds shift in an ugly direction I will side with the Muslims.”
* The candidate has surrounded himself with anti-American grievance mongers, and appears to manipulate “typical white people” by appealing to their guilt about slavery.
* He is a socialist, and totally disenfranchised from the history of “root America.”
* The candidate refuses to discuss his years at Columbia University, although he lived off campus and made few friends.
* He will not release his application to the state bar notes which raises questions on several issues including the use of drugs.
* Very little is available about his experience with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation that spent $100 million with no discernable benefit for the schools and students that it was****tively designed to help.

It is therefore my strongest recommendation this candidate not be considered for any position within the corporation.

Ayers was let off because of an improper evidence gathering charge against the prosecution.

He cannot be charged twice for the same crime.

Did he not violate anyone’s “civil rights” by trying to blow them up?

Right!

One would not even hire such an individual as a janitor at the corporate office.

However, Obama -- possessing the aforementioned record -- may become the next POTUS!

The implications are staggering!

Good post!

I believe he was charged but the case had procedural errors and was dismissed. I don't know if it was with or without prejudice.

Doesn't it remind you a bit of the GITMO situation? Leftist wine that prisoners have been held for years without a trail. But every time the government has started to try them, there's a left wing lawsuit challenging the validity of the trail.
