Skip to comments.Was There a Hidden Message in Obama's Osawatomie Speech?
Posted on 12/13/2011 10:48:58 AM PST by Paladins Prayer
Were told that Barack Obama chose the obscure locale of Osawatomie, Kansas, for his recent domestic policy speech because it was the site of a seminal Teddy Roosevelt speech 101 years ago. This may very well be true. Through the distinctively named city of 4,500, Obama could make a symbolic connection with the man who once offered Americans a Hamiltonian conception of state power dubbed the New Nationalism. Yet, unbeknownst to virtually everyone, Obama is connected to Osawatomie through another man.
Its a connection thats odd and alarming and at least a bit spooky.
I didnt know about this connection when I wrote my recent article about the Presidents communist ties. But just to provide some background, I pointed out how Obama claimed in Osawatomie that our relatively free market system not only doesnt work, it has never worked. Furthermore, I mentioned the fact that the President has appointed avowed communists to his administration, that he was mentored by communist Frank Marshall Davis, that a contemporary of his at Occidental College said that Obama was a flat-out Marxist-Leninist during his time there, and that he has no known history of renouncing these views. More to the point here, however, I mentioned well-known Obama closet skeleton and self-proclaimed communist Bill Ayers, who, as you probably know, was a Weather Underground terrorist in the 1970s. Now, to get exactly to the point, Id like you to take a gander at the following image and see what jumps out at you.

Don’t want to go to those sites. yuk. evil.
From the same link a video with obama saying “we have traveled 57 states with I think one left to go” (about 1 minute in). I do not know that I saw that clip before.
What planets were alined to have made him President?
|Born in 1908, Leon Mathis Despres moved as an infant to Chicago's Hyde Park area and lived there almost his entire life. Despres studied law at the University of Chicago, gaining his degree in 1929.
In the late 1920s Despres became friendly with the future father of "community organizing" Saul Alinsky- a sociologist and sometime associate of Chicago's Capone gang.
Despres joined the Hyde Park branch of the Socialist Party USA in 1933-remaining a member until 1937
In 1937, a fellow lawyer asked Leon Despres to deliver a suitcase of clothing to Leon Trotsky, the exiled Bolshevik living in Mexico. The Despreses traveled south and met not only Trotsky but his ally, artist Diego Rivera.
Former Chicago Alderman Leon Despres, known for standing up to the machine of Mayor Richard J. Daley in the 1950s, '60s and '70s, when no one else would, died Wednesday in his home in the city's Hyde Park neighborhood. He was 101.
Despres' legacy includes leading the independent political coalition that eventually helped elect Chicago's first black mayor, Harold Washington, in 1983, and some argue he helped pave the way for the election of the country's first black president, Barack Obama, who cut his political teeth in the same Chicago neighborhood.
A little over a decade later, in 1996, the remaining pieces of that coalition helped elect a young community organizer named Barack Obama to the Illinois Senate.
In a statement Wednesday, President Obama said, "Through two decades on the Chicago City Council and a long lifetime of activism, Len Despres was an indomitable champion for justice and reform. With an incisive mind, rapier wit and unstinting courage, he waged legendary battles against the corruption and discrimination that blighted our city, and he lived every one of his 101 years with purpose and meaning. I have been blessed by his wise counsel and inspired by his example."
If it matters that Newt Gingrich was unfaithful to his wives many years ago, it matters infinitely more that Barack Obama has been unfaithful to freedom and the American spirit by continuing, to this very day, his affair with a tyrannical, malevolent force that leaves nothing but the ruin of man in its wake.
Thanks for the ping. I’ve been too busy to get up to speed on this subject, but this one post put it all in perspective for me. Obama is telegraphing what he’ll do if he manages to win another four. The ‘fundamental change’ will be so extreme, none of us will recognize the US any more.
Wish we had a better candidate to go up against him with.
You're right - that's the one.
You don’t have to go that far. Ayres and Dohrn have years and years worth of well-indoctrinated students, programs (small schools), states’ educationocrats, and from there, the butterfly effect. Then, there’s the whole U of Chicago, Jeremiah Wright, Hyde Park, multiple foundations’ boards.........
There’s overlap in our two lists.
John Brown. Search his name and Osawatomie. There’s even a park for him.
“...the opening shots of the Civil War:
The Raid on Lawrence, Kansas. In May 1856, a band of Border Ruffians crossed the border from Missouri and attacked the free-soil community of Lawrence, looting and burning a number of buildings. Only one person was killed (one of the Ruffians), but the door to violence had been breached.
The Pottawatomie Creek Massacre. A few days later, in retaliation for the Lawrence raid, abolitionist forces under the zealot John Brown attacked a small proslavery settlement on Pottawatomie Creek. On Browns orders, five men were executed with a scythe.
The so-called “Border War” lasted for another four months until a new governor, John W. Geary, managed to prevail upon the Missourans to return home in late 1856. A fragile peace followed, but violent outbreaks continued intermittently for several more years.
National reaction to the events in Kansas demonstrated how deeply divided the country had become. The Border Ruffians were widely applauded in the South, even though their actions had cost the lives of numerous people. In the North the murders committed by Brown and his followers were ignored by most and lauded by a few.”
Definitely legion. Have you seen the anonymous video that warns Americans about the new defense bill that allows for indefinite detention?
I don’t think anyone likes it but if there was ever a time that we better know our enemy it is now!
He feels safe enough to come out into the open and reveal his true beliefs. He’s getting cocky.
No. Got a link?
Not sure I need to see it for my own sake. I am just chilled at the open fascism going down.
Great stuff! Fills a few holes in my info just right.
Placemark for reading carefully.
That is the kind of "dog-whistle politics" politicians can do -- use language and make overtures that activists pick up on and the rest of the country doesn't notice. But the question is whether the activists are going to be the people smiling in the end, or whether they'll feel used and cheated (or be used and cheated and not even realize it).
