Exclusive: Breitbart has dinner with Bill Ayers (and Bernardine Dohrn

Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn auctioned off an evening for dinner in their home in Chicago and Tucker Carlson of "The Daily Caller" took advantage of the opportunity. For $2,500 Tucker and a few of his friends secured an evening with the radical couple. Tucker invited along Andrew Breitbart who called into Stephen K. Bannon's "The Victory Sessions" and gave a play-by-play of the meal. Breitbart said that they had "no game plan" going in to the evening, and that strategy produced an unforgettable event that the Ayers won't soon forget.

Oh right, none.

Ayers calling Andrew a bomb thrower?!

These folks really must be delusional, to not see the sublimely ridiculous irony in that statement.

Whew.

Please guide our course Lord.

And yet they all broke bread on Superbowl Sunday.

Soon after that at CPAC, Breitbart announces he has tapes of Obama in his college days and then surprisingly drops dead from "natural causes"

Curious to say the least.

Breitbart.com is doing a great job of connecting all the dots that led to the coup. They are exposing all of Obama’s communist sympathies and associates. They are vetting Obama as Andrew Breitbart promised. They have not and may never touch on the Satanic, but I will bet you it fits in the puzzle somewhere.

Agreed!

Ayer’s quote has finally convinced me that projection reaches the level of a physical force with the Left. It’s not a figment of psychology: it’s real. These people are absolutely psychotic.

And all through school it was ALWAYS a tiny twit (like ayers) who tried to bully me..... some short guys have some kind of inferiority complex I think.

Looked up all the sexual predators in my zip code, ALL were under 6’. Most were within an inch or two of 5’9”.

Hating Breitbart Synopsis

“Hating Breitbart” tells the story of how one man with a website upended the traditional press and repeatedly found himself the target of a media feeding frenzy.

The filmmakers have been following Andrew Breitbart since the birth of the Tea Party movement in 2009, and they’ve got behind-the-scenes access to many of the media controversies in which Breitbart was a key player—from the ACORN takedown to Congressman Anthony Weiner’s crotch-shot Twitter scandal.

Have any of Breitbart’s fans thrown acid in a policman’s face?

NO?

How about stealing identities of innocent people, applying for driver’s licenses to use on rental car applications for vehicles used in robberies and bombings?

No?

How DO these people become “respected” and tenured professors? GOOD GRIEF!

Obama was Chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) from 1995 to the end of 2001, and distributed more than $110 Million dollars to improve Chicago Public Schools. Listen to what Obama said about the person that submitted the CAC grant proposal, and also sat as an ex officio member of the CAC board, Bill Ayers

A large portion of the more than $110 Million went to ethnic and social programs like these:

$632,662 to Small Schools Workshop, started by Mike Klonsky and William Ayers, created to push their school reform agenda.

$413,000 to the South Shore African Village Collaborative for their “Celebrate African-American Holiday of Juneteenth” (celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation). Some African-Americans celebrate Juneteenth instead of the Fourth of July.

and many more...

Turned down to receive a grant:

The Chicago Algebra Project: goal to increase student achievement

The District 5 Math Initiative: goal to aid Hispanic students in the process of learning English, to further learn math and science.

and many more programs designed to advance student fundamentals.

Lately, we have seen Obama describe him as “one of the thousands of people I know”, and then we are told that Obama didn’t know who Ayers was. We have to believe that while going to Columbia College, and Harvard, he didn’t hear about Ayers?

Take a look at the Connie Chung interview at about 7:39 of this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79fC0jAi2gc

Spend some time looking at the following articles:

Then follow the dots from Alinsky, where Obama learned his Community Organization skills, to Acorn who Obama taught how to exploit these strong arm tactics, and started the downward spiral of our current economic crisis, and then Ayers, who Obama helped fund pet projects that will turn our schools into indoctrination centers like Hugo Chavez’s (Ayers daughter consults to Hugo Chavez)

[Obama] is named Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge founded by Bill Ayers
(article typo has Ayers instead of Obama)

In late 1993, Bill Ayers, now an associate professor of education at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus, organized a team to put together a grant proposal to secure nearly $50 million from the Annenberg Challenge. The money was to be used by Ayers and co. to bolster the radical Local School Councils reform project that Ayers and Obama had championed back in 1988 through the ABCs.

The grant application was successful and in early 1995 Barack Obama was named chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Ayers was named co-chair of the Challenge’s operative and strategic body, the Chicago School Reform Collaborative. Ayers and Obama work together for the next five years on raising an additional $60 million in matching money from local foundations and corporations and using the money to intervene in the governance of the Chicago public schools.

The Challenge through a multi-million dollar Leadership Development Initiative intervened in the School Council elections in the middle of what was known as the Chicago School Wars. At the same time Chicago Mayor Richard Daley was pushing, successfully, to gut the power of the Councils.

“The Small Schools Workshop was founded in 1991 at the University of Illinois at Chicago to provide support for teachers who were trying to create new smaller learning environments. Its director is Michael Klonsky, a former professor of education at UIC.”

________________________________________________________

Some background on Bill Ayers’ SDS comrade, Michael Klonsky
(Chicago Annenberg Challenge-related)

“One of Bill Ayers’ and Bernardine Dohrn’s comrades in the late 60s Students for a Democratic Society was Mike Klonsky. When Dohrn and Ayers moved in one direction toward the violent tactics of the Weather Underground, Klonsky, in the wake of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, dropped the pro-Russian communist politics of his parents and became a committed Maoist. As leader of the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) in 1977 [not to be confused with Communist Party USA. CPML no longer exists, CPUSA formed decades earlier and is still around-ETL], he travelled to Beijing and was toasted by the senior Beijing leadership.

When the crazy left of the 70s died in the 80s, Klonsky went to graduate school in education in Florida and then moved to Chicago.

While driving a cab there he [Michael Klonsky] was recruited by his old friend Bill Ayers to head up a new project called the Small Schools Workshop in 1991. It’s offices were in the Department of Education building at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus where Ayers taught.

In 1995 the newly formed Chicago Annenberg Challenge headed by Ayers and Obama gave the Workshop a grant of $175,000.

The Annenberg Challenge also had its office space in the same building as Ayers Department and the Workshop, rent free courtesy of the University.

In 2008 Klonsky ran a blog on the official Obama campaign website on education policy and “social justice” teaching. When discussion of the Klonsky blog emerged in the blogosphere, it was promptly shut down by the campaign and all of the posts made by Klonsky were removed from the site.”

________________________________________________________

In 1977, the October League was reorganized as the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) [again, not Communist Party USA (CPUSA) -ETL] and former SDS activist Michael Klonsky became party chairman. Also in 1977, Klonsky traveled to China and the CPML was recognized by the Chinese Communist Party as its official sister party in America.

(snip)

In January 1981, Michael Klonsky resigned as party chairman, and the CPML disbanded that same year.

The previous Red Encyclopedia description of the CPML was incorrectly combined with that of the Communist Party USA (Marxist-Leninist).

From Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:

“Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer’s descriptions for a course called ‘Improving Learning Environments’ says prospective K-12 teachers need to ‘be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive — 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama’s relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.’...”

Bill Ayers TODAY (April 6, 2008), from his own red communist star-headed website, begging to debate communism vs capitalism with Sean Hannity and STILL calling for revolution!

“Imperialism. I’m against it, and if Sean Hannity and others were honest, this is the ground they would fight me on. Capitalism played its role historically and is exhausted as a force for progress: built on exploitation, theft, conquest, war, and racism, capitalism and imperialism must be defeated and a world revolution—a revolution against war and racism and materialism, a revolution based on human solidarity and love, cooperation and the common good —must win.

We begin by releasing our most hopeful dreams and our most radical imaginations: a better world is both possible and necessary.

SCHOOL REFORMERS GETTING WISH - UNITY, COMMITMENT LED TO $49.2 MILLION GIFT
Chicago Tribune - January 23, 1995
Author: Charles Storch, Tribune Staff Writer.

EXCERPT

(Theodore Sizer, director of Annenberg’s institute) Sizer also is the founder and chairman of the Coalition of Essential Schools, also at Brown. For the last decade, the coalition has provided technical support to and forged alliances among urban high schools involved in restructuring. The coalition has been active in Chicago since 1988.

That Annenberg decided to work with the coalition in establishing his program was encouraging to William Ayers , associate professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago . Ayers also is a leader of the Small Schools Workshop, which helps Chicago schools and teachers improve instruction.

“Here’s Annenberg , a very successful, national public citizen,” Ayers said. “He could have given his money to so-called reform projects, like privatized schools in public systems or vouchers. But he picked the coalition, which has a strong record turning around urban high schools.”

Last January, Ayers and Anne Hallett, executive director of the Cross City Campaign for Urban School Reform, began contacting local educators, school-system officials, politicians, foundation executives, teachers union leaders and community activists about the Annenberg Challenge . With Warren Chapman, a program officer for the Joyce Foundation, Ayers and Hallett assembled a group of about 30 people to write a proposal, with 70 more providing counsel.

After months of revisions and meetings with other interested parties, the group submitted its proposal to Annenberg ‘s advisers in November. The proposal was approved this month.

The proposal envisions as many as 150 schools working in concert with outside organizations to reduce class size and increase lesson-preparation time for teachers.

Sizer said he and other Annenberg advisers were impressed that many different organizations in Chicago coalesced around the grant proposal.

A BOOSTER SHOT FOR CHICAGO ‘S PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Chicago Tribune - January 31, 1995
Author: William Ayers , Warren Chapman and Anne Hallett . ; The writers are the authors of the city’s proposal to the Annenberg Foundation. William Ayers is a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago ; Warren Chapman is a program officer at the Joyce Foundation; and Anne Hallett is the executive director of the Cross-City Campaign for Urban School Reform

(snip)

The Chicago Challenge is the work of the Chicago School Reform Collaborative, a broad-based group of parents, teachers, citizens and reformers. The theme of the challenge rests on four legs: the professional development and empowerment of teachers; the reorganization of schools into smaller learning environments; community-school partnerships; and system-wide change

In order to improve teaching we need to rethink and reorganize the way teachers use their time to think and plan. We also need to address the unworkable size of large schools and classrooms.

The Annenberg Challenge is designed so that money goes directly to schools working with community partners. The reinvented schools we envision will be places that provide a personalized, more intense and flexible learning experience for students. They will be sites where teachers have the time, authority and encouragement to think and reflect, in essence where they are expected to take risks and get smart.

There will, of course, be failure as well as success. The only intolerable response is to fail to reach, because business-as-usual will result in failure-as-always.

Chicago is several years into the most dramatic and far-reaching reform ever attempted in a big-city school system. Every school now has a democratically-elected local school council made up of parents, teachers and community members who have the the authority to hire and evaluate principals, set school policy, develop and monitor a school improvement plan and approve the school budget. In other words, the councils can initiate many changes without having to ask permission.

Reform has meant that funds earmarked for poor children now flow directly to schools-$440,000 per elementary school on average and $850,000 per high school. Many of the councils have spent these discretionary monies wisely: They have hired more than 3,000 new teachers, brought large numbers of parents and community residents into schools to work with students, purchased needed books and material and strengthened school security.

On the negative ledger, test scores and student achievement in the aggregate remain few. It is important to note that in a massive system that spends more than $250 million a year in discretionary money, $10 million a year for five years will not produce miracles. Further Chicago faces a $300 million budget deficit and the Annenberg funds do not address that problem in any way.

Still Chicago reform unleashed enormous civic energy around education that is paying off. Foundation and corporate grants to improve public education have quadrupled in six years. A strong and growing infrastructure of resources to support schools has been created by community groups, neighborhood organizations, civic agencies, business associations and universities. New ideas and fresh air have flowed freely into our schools.

In fact, according to several people involved, Mr. Ayers played no role in Mr. Obama’s appointment. Instead, it was suggested by Deborah Leff, then president of the Joyce Foundation, a Chicago-based group whose board Mr. Obama, a young lawyer, had joined the previous year. At a lunch with two other foundation heads, Patricia A. Graham of the Spencer Foundation and Adele Simmons of the MacArthur Foundation, Ms. Leff suggested that Mr. Obama would make a good board chairman, she said in an interview. Mr. Ayers was not present and had not suggested Mr. Obama, she said.

SCHOOLS GET READY FOR ANNENBERG CHALLENGE ON INNOVATIVE EDUCATION
Chicago Tribune - June 23, 1995
Author: V. Dion Haynes, Tribune Education Writer.

Chicago principals and local school councils interested in innovative education are now invited to apply for a chunk of a $147 million award to make their ideas reality.

Officials of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge announced Thursday that they are accepting proposals from schools that want to make radical changes in the way teachers teach and students learn

“This is about the children of Chicago. This is about making the lives of the children of Chicago better,” said Annenberg Challenge board member Patricia Albjerg Graham , who is also president of the Spencer Foundation, a Chicago-based organization offering grants for educational research.

Barack Obama, a Chicago lawyer and chairman of the Annenberg Challenge board, added, “If we’re really going to change things in this city, it’s going to start at the grass-roots level and with our children.”

SCHOOLS GO AFTER WINDFALL - MILLIONS FOR REFORM COULD BE HOLIDAY GIFT
Chicago Tribune - October 23, 1994

Author: Charles Storch and V. Dion Haynes, Tribune Staff Writers.

(snip)

A group of Chicago educators, foundation officials, community activists and others, including an assistant to Chicago Public Schools Supt. Argie Johnson, have worked this year on a grant proposal, which they hope to complete and submit by Nov. 1 to the Annenberg National Institute for School Reform at Brown University in Rhode Island.

(snip)

Although only 150 of the city’s 550 public schools might be involved, the plan’s drafters believe the Annenberg schools would demonstrate benefits that could be adopted throughout the system within five years.

“We don’t want there to be a couple of schools that are shining lights and the rest a mess,” said Anne Hallett, executive director of the Chicago-based Cross City Campaign for Urban School Reform and a longtime force in the local reform movement.

Hallett and William Ayers , an associate professor of education at University of Illinois at Chicago, began the campaign here for an Annenberg grant last December.

Ayers would like to see plans “addressing the huge number of kids in factory-like environments. We need to see creative ways of scheduling kids so they can learn in a smaller (classroom) environment and so teachers can have fewer students.”

He acknowledged that for such plans to work, administrators and the teachers union would have to waive rules establishing hours worked by teachers.

If it were possible, it would great to have a permanent “I AM BREITBART” keyword at the top of the site, or ONE such permanent sticky thread at the top of the front page where we could keep adding pertinent items .. a repository of all the falsities and thuggery that will continue to play out in this critical election, to keep Andrew’s vision and the mission of us all:

to uncover the leftist/media hypocrisy, criminality, propaganda, diversions and lies.

Then, there’d be just ONE place to go to for that kind of news every day and to get the latest updates .. and we wouldn’t miss threads to which we weren’t pinged or missed due to our personal schedules or ‘cause they have NO keyword.

So many folks are so terribly negligent in inserting keywords when they post a thread anyway ... it’s a darn shame, ‘cause you have no way to find some items that would interest you, but maybe if folks got used to ONE place, even some other name that’s precise and catchy, it would in time finally sink in.

Thoughts ? Impractical ? Doable ? Helpful ?

Hi trish .. yes.

Or better, a separate permanent front page thread that would go on through this election .. like the separate red letter (can be any color) front page, prominent, clickable line for FReepathons at the top of the front page.

It would just need a brief explanation.
i.e.,

This is a permanent, ongoing election season thread.
Post your discoveries of leftist and media lies, spin, criminality and hypocrisy here. We are Breitbart!
Click often for latest updates.

I have appreciated the graphics of Breitbart, except for this one.

Is there a background to this particular graphic?

I’m going to order “So?” t-shirts.

Okay .. Here ya go. This is my FR front page layout. See the red letter sentence: Welcome to Free Republic, America's exclusive site for God, .. etc .. ??

Another line could be added under that in colored font with the call to post discoveries, news, tips, new crowd videos, etc. about the left and media. We already know how creative and savvy FReepers are (Rathergate,Clinton FReeps, etc.)

Now, with all the cell and tiny cameras and the public events, rallies, protests, etc. that will only be growing, you just know FReepers could be on the frontlines breaking news items and showing the dark side we know resides in the left, unions, kool aid drinkers, and media. It would be SO helpful if all these important tips and news items could be found in ONE long thread that's constantly being updated.

I know we have the word "elections" up there in red, but we're talking about the skullduggery and chaos we know the left and helpmate media are going to be spewing non-stop. We haven't even begun to see the what's coming and all the vicious things they'll be creating .. it's going to be WAR, and God help us .. first to be informed about what's happening, and then to be ready to fight back with the truth.

I mostly have no idea what you’re talking about, but..what I believe you are saying it that this would facilitate the sharing of information regarding all things Breitbart amongst conservatives?

Yes .. my thought is ONE continuous thread that could be updated thru the day, and that FReepers could check for the latest buzz,tips, etc.. We’ve had many huge threads before over the years. I know I miss a lot that folks post here, unless they’re in Breaking. I just think it would be a very
efficient and timely way to be updated about the misleading campaign coverage and leftist/union dirty tricks.

Don't need no Weatherman to see which way the wind blws.

 

"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"

--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."

http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20080637,00.html

"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."

Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F02E1DE1438F932A2575AC0A9679C8B63&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=1

"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."

Campus Wars: The Peace Movement At American State Universities in the Vietnam Era

 

"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left.  Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."

OK .. LOL. It would be like clicking any other
thread .. only prominently located and visible at
the top of the front page .. and constantly updated
with the latest buzz folks gather, and continuing
throughout this election cycle.

Thanks ... unrepentant, pot smoking, anti-establishment hippies from the 60s .. never left it, only now feeding and perverting young skulls full of mush with their eurocentric, anti-American trash in academia and the internet. Tragically and shamefully, they were never brought to their knees with the righteous punishment they deserved for their vicious crimes; rather, they’re treated with ACCEPTANCE and even lauded by society.

This was one of my favorite odes to Breitbart, written by Matt Labash, who was also with Breitbart at the Ayers dinner:

As it happened, Breitbart was on his best behavior. “I’m here to learn,” Andrew said facetiously. It was part of the pleasure of keeping company with him. He wasn’t just a friend, he was a co-conspirator. Once we arrived at the apartment, much to Andrew’s and Ayers’s chagrin, they got along famously. Just two guys having dinner, finding commonality, even if Andrew regarded it his hidebound duty to passive-aggressively heckle Ayers as he served us plates of hoisin ribs and farmhouse cheeses. (“This is the bomb, Bill,” Breitbart said to the former explosives-rigger.)

When Ayers asked me what I was reading right now, I told him “Moby Dick,” which actually lived up to its billing. Ayers agreed, though added, as any good academic would, “You’ve picked up the gay subtext?” Breitbart nearly choked on his tofu and quinoa. “You mean in Moby Dick?” Andrew asked. “Or at this dinner?

“How DO these people become “respected” and tenured professors?”

Do you think it might have helped that his daddy was president of the board at Northwestern? Both were ‘children of privilege,’ who knew they could do whatever they wanted without consequences others would face.

you would think even the connections would have limits.

I can’t wrap my brain about the dimwit who, at some point, said....”hey!let’s hire this guy!”

And parents actually pay tuition to have their child sit in his class?

And somebody is paying him to “reform” the schools and write curriculum?

my head just explodes.
