Want to know How Obama met Vera Baker?
Buzz ^

Posted on 10/17/2008 11:37:46 AM PDT by sunmars

From HillBuzz

There’s something incredibly interesting in the Mills College yearbook from 1996 or 1997

Cryptic clue

Anyone in California who can head over to the library at Mills College will find something very interesting in the Mills College yearbook from 1996 or 1997.

All this talk of plumbers lately made us think about butchers, BAKERS and candlestick makers too.

Who was the other guy, or gal, in that tub?

Oh yah…baker.

A rub-a-dub-dub!

Wonder if there are photos of any bakers in those Mills College yearbooks.

In Martinique, they’ve got a baker or two, from what we hear. No pictures though.

THOSE are all in California. San Francisco area. At this address:

5000 MacArthur Boulevard

Oakland, California

----------------------------------------------

Now for the Killer part string us in the face.

Rick Ayers received his Masters in Education at Mills College (1997)

I thought Vera Baker worked for or with Joe Biden in a campaign, and that’s how Biden got on the ticket. It’s not who you know — but WHAT you know. Or maybe WHO AND WHAT you know.

Don’t cha know!

Thanks. Mills used to be an all-girls school, but it changed a number of years ago. It’s still relatively small, though, so it’s quite possible that they knew each other.

"Ayers, 59, is credited with galvanizing the small schools movement in Berkeley and navigating the choppy political waters of Berkeley High to advocate for CAS, where he is lead teacher, and small schools in general.

DEFINITELY William Ayers bro, including heavy SDS Weatherman involvement!!!!!

Agreed. This is a little too coy. Vera Baker is supposed to be Obama's girlfriend.

It's possible that Baker knew Rick Ayers (the brother of the bomber) and met Obama through him.

But, consider: almost nobody remembers Obama at Columbia. Mills College is a smaller school, but it's not at all certain that an undergrad at an all-female college, would actually know a fifty-something male graduate student (and wouldn't be grossed out at the thought of socializing with him).

If anybody wants to follow up on this, find out what department Vera was studying in and where she went to high school (Rick Ayers was teaching at Berkeley High).

Theres a very big circle coming together here, wanna bet that Rick Ayers met Vera Baker at Mills introduces her to Bill Ayers who introduces her to Obama, then the alledged affair begins.

Apparently i’ve been researching and from what i gather that this whole thing is apparently what was rumoured that Hillary over Obama and Obama sold Edwards to NE for them to keep quiet over his affair. I never understood why the Edwards affair crashed when it did, now it makes sense.

That's what I thought too. What was he doing before that? I know he was against the Vietnam War. I found an article posted on the Huffington Post written by him. But his earlier life, prior to what is covered in the bio on the Huffington Post is missing. I did find this: "Rick grew up in Chicago and is married to Ilene Abrams (Berkeley High School College Advisor) and has three children, Aisha, Sonia, and Max, and a grandchild, Eliel."

Brother of Bill

and also a former member of Weather Underground
This section form article link below.
Note connection to Chicago...

“He grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, his father a businessman, his mother a stay-at-home mom. In high school, Ayers was part of a self-described “nerdy, artsy group,” and though a precocious student, he felt stifled by his surroundings.

“I was in honky heaven, and we were just dying,” he said. “Every time we could, we went out to Chicago and would hang out at blues clubs and go to museums................”

“Ayers is used to rustling feathers. As an undergraduate at the University of Michigan—where he dated the late comedian Gilda Radner—he was drafted into the army and immediately took to organizing anti-war sentiment. When his company was deployed to Vietnam, he went AWOL, subsequently joining up with the Weather Underground, a radical anti-war group responsible for dynamiting public buildings like draft boards, prison offices and, most notably, the Pentagon. (Ayers declines to comment what activities he was involved in—if any.)”

And here is the thing, with all roads leading to Ayers: Does Obama truly think if he’s elected that he is free of them? They probably know everything about how Obama got where he got, and they are going to call in the chickens and they will come home to “roost.” I am afraid Obama is pwned by the wrong people and they will be “helping” him govern.

WADE RATHKE: ACORN’S FOUNDER, AYERS’ COMPATRIOT http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/10/17/wade-rathke-acorns-founder-ayers-compatriot/ amazing what you find on the net. Ayers Friend founded Acorn. The lines of evidence now converge: the founder of ACORN is Wade Rathke, who, like William Ayers, was a member of the Students for a Democratic Society. The Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the student organization founded in 1960 as part of the New Left, was the gateway drug to the Weather Underground. In the early sixties, the SDS was idealistic and many reluctantly supported Lyndon Johnson for president in 1964, and grainy black-and-white pictures show clean-cut men and women registering southern blacks to vote. Tom Hayden was amongst this group. But that was then. By 1969, their Great Society liberalism had been co-opted by Marxists, Maoists, Spartacists, and other assorted revolutionary groups. They were no longer interested in change, but overthrowing the government. It was during this time that Wade Rathke first came into contact with Bill Ayers.

I became perplexed by the post's opacity before checking the poster's credentials. I brought up the newbie thing because many newbies posts things which are opague, confusing or just wrong and I wanted to know if this poster knew what he(she) was doing. So far, I'm not sure this post has any coherence and that the fault began with the initial excerpt which is virtually unintelligible.

I usually welcome newbies, so ego ain't the problem---nor is the rock I've been hiding under. Do a search for Rick Ayer here and you'll see.

Vera Baker was Obama’s finance chief, the woman who disappeared to Martinique, the one Obama is supposed to be having the affair with and Michelle banished her.

I think we should consider the possibility that the affair is a red herring put in place by Team O, and that Vera Baker is actually down there for another purpose.

Consider this:

-Baker has served in a finance capacity for Obama since 2004 (and many other Dem interests prior to that).
-Obama's campaign has extremely questionable campaign finance practices, with many ties to the mid-east.
-France-mideast dealings are much stronger than those between the mideast and any other large western country.
-There is a need to launder massive amounts of money to the campaign from the mideast.
-The Carribean is where massive amounts of money is laundered.
-Martinique is an island in the Caribbean and an overseas department of France.

Hmmm?

Its possible but the main thrust of why i posted this was, what a coincidence that someone Obama is close too just happened to appear at the same college same time as another Ayers. its just too coincidence, Everything leads back to Ayers in some sort, the affair would be a bonus, what I am interested in is the fact that Obama claims hes just some guy in his neighbourhood, funy that everyone Obama has dealings with also knows Ayers. The common denominator is as you say bleeding obvious.

Since Sunday, many web links to Vera Baker have been removed. Her personal website, and the website of her consulting company, Cape Caribbean, LLC, have been removed. This could simply mean that she does not want to be harassed.

The UK’s Daily Mail is running as story about a relationship Barack Obama had with an aide during his 2004 Senate campaign. Of course this is an MSM source, and it may or may not be true. Bloggers have named the person as Vera E Baker. If anything occurred, it would have happened four years ago. Vera Baker is now about 33.

According to FEC Senate campaign records Baker was paid under the job title National Finance Director for Obama’s campaign. However, Claire Serdiuk was usually listed as the campaign Finance Director. So Vera Baker’s position had a confusing job title, but that may mean nothing.

When Vera Baker’s consulting website was functioning, it stated, “Previously, she served as the National Finance Director on Senator Barack Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign. She also served as the Deputy Political Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.”

Baker, who now lives mostly in Fort de France, Martinique, in the Caribbean, has denied any claims of a relationship, or that Michelle Obama expressed any issue with her. It would be a real shame if Vera Baker had no romantic involvement with Obama, but got pulled down into tawdry innuendo.

Democrats are claiming this is a smear campaign from the Republicans, but this story first surfaced near the end of the Hillary Clinton - Barack Obama race. At present, the primary sources for this story seem to be from Democrats.
