Google, which sits atop more data than anybody outside the NSA, is presenting Bill Ayers as the author of Barack Obama's purported first autobiography, Dreams from My Father. Follow this link and see it while you can. If it is gone by the time you read this, a screen shot of the page, and a close-up on the Dreams entry are provided for posterity...

I guess that’s all that Ayers can do with his worthless Ed degree...write lies about another worthless dork.
If you scan the text and come up with less than one hundred “let me be clears” it was definitely Ayers.
Already gone. I clicked and no results were returned
Uhm, I don’t see what Lifson is talking about. Not in his screen shot or elsewhere...
Now the link leads with books attributed to Ayers and then Dreams of My father attributed to Barack Obama.
Dn't need n Weatherman t see which waybama's wind
"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..."
"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"
"...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."..."
"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."
I doubt Obama knows how to write. Heck, he can’t even talk without a teleprompter.
Just a guy in the neighborhood.
Just a guy in the neighborhood.
Hmm, I see it as the fourth book from the top, and when I click there it gives me the zoomed-in Google Books preview.
The question, as with all celebrity written books, is if the “author” has read it!
This is nothing new.
A few years ago I read about a woman that spotted Ayers
in a Chicago airport Starbucks.
In conversation with him, he bragged about being the author
of “Dreams Of My Father”.
About the same time I was reading a piece about how Obama, as a young man, was sent off to Bali, equipped with the latest version of a typewriter/word processor.
He was to start his writing carer, but spent the entire time lugging the machine over his shoulder as he walked the beach, and never authored a single line.
I think all of us know that everything with Obumbo is a lie
and built on the same principle.
Ayers is one of these intellectual half-wits who accepts the groundwork of leftist ideology simply because it allows him to tell a lie while at the same time fooling him into believing he’s telling the truth.
First of all, the search is not for books by Bill Ayers, although it will find those. It is for mentions of Bill Ayers in any book. Note of course that the author “Dreams ...” is listed as Barack Obama.
Then why does it show up? This appears to be some kind of a hack. The scroll bar on the right shows purported hits of “Bill Ayers” in the text. When you roll the cursor over them, they show some kind of commentary, not necessarily in sympathy with the putative author. These excerpts are not on the page which is supposed to contain them, so I don’t know how this came about. As I say, it certainly looks like a hack.
Wasn’t he bitter he didn’t get any money for the book?
That's the URL from Lifson. Dreams from my Father is the 4th entry in the list of books by Ayers.
Ayers inherited wealth.
This particular hit is from "The unauthorized biography", and the others were of the same character, so I guess that's where they all came from. Still looks like a hack.
Look at the URL from Lifson in comment# 21.
That terminal part, &btnG=Search+Books&tbm=bks&tbo=1
is some sort of ccommand to search books by Bill Ayers, IMHO, not any hacking.
If any of you had purchased ‘Deconstructing Obama’ you wouldn’t have even the slightest doubt about who wrote EACH book. Ayers wrote the first fraud, “Audacity....’ was authored by Jon Favreau. End of story.
Or having Ayers, once shown on the cover of a magazine stomping the US Flag into the ground, a current, repeat visitor.
OMG, I clicked and it was gone too! In a mere 20 minutes Google discovered the book and its author and erased it from the internet........
Somebody is watching our every post.......
We are heading for CWII at breakneck speed.
Still there, the list of Ayers’ books and Obama smack in the middle of the list, LOL
G o o g l e Books lists Bill Ayers as author of "Dreams from My Father"
Why the change?
Is it because of the Dog consumption paragraph and subsequent uproar, and now g o o g l e , et al wants us to believe 0hbummer didn't know it was in the book?
Too late. ... I believe 0hbummer ate Dog(s) as originally stated.
Thanks to both Jet Jaguar and thouworm.
“Then, unprompted he said—I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said, oh, so you admit it. He said—Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He’s about my height, short. He went on to say—and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties.”
Thanks for the ping. I guess this listing by google makes it official.
Bill Ayers is not listed as the author; "Obama" is. Even on the screenshot in Lifson's article, the author is shown to be "Obama". Why that book would come up when doing a Go0gle search of books using "bill ayers" as the search term is another matter, however.
The command is a simple “dynamic URL”, although it’s the devil to find any info on these. I did find a mention on some site that “tbo=1” preserves the search options, or something. I infer that this means that the “bill ayers” search line is carried into the google books page, so that when you click on the book it performs the same search. This is what I did from the posted link, and as you can see from the screen shot I posted, it did do the search ( if you take my word that I just clicked the book image. ) As I say, when I repeat this now, it doesn’t find these bogus hits from some other source.
Although the list of books it shows are headed by ones with Bill Ayers as author or co-author, there are books further on which merely mention the name. I assume that “Dreams” was listed high because of the number of hits associated with it, whether this was a hack or some freak error, or whatever.
So did his original screen shot. They do show the book when you search Ayers, but they show Obama as author. A bit weird.
You must have done it wrong. I just did it and got results.
Try this. Go to google. Then click on 'more' at the top of the page and select 'books.' Type in 'Bill Ayers' and click 'search book.' The list comes up and "Dreams" is on Ayers list, but Obama is listed as author.
Am I missing something? When I go to the link it shows the big-eared-one as the author. But why would that book be listed under ayers name? Or is it that simple?
BTW...adorable dog. Has anyone seen 0buma’s dog recently?
I am betting he was never head of Harvard Law Review. Those are public documents and If I could travel easily, I would go back to my law school and see if his years are in the law library. Someone must have them!
To be head of LR as a 2L in unbelievable.
If someone is near a law school, go check the library for anything in the review from 88-91.
” - - - let me be clears - - - “
Perhaps this phase will help future historians of the disaster that was Obamanation, understand the opaque word “transparency” often used by his High Pothead Poo-Bahness Obama.
A guy on the law review should be able to work at any law firm. So why didn't Obama? Pretty bad when you go to college and law school, but the only job you can get is “community organizer.”
I had a friend (deceased) who was a grad of Harvard LS. He told me that if you were accepted there, you would graduate (same for Yale). Your position on the graduation scale was dependent on your gifting amounts plus grades.
And don't tell me about affirmative action. I was hammered by it.
I have posted this information before on liberal sites and have NEVER been challenged.
In the end, Ayers contribution to Baracks Dreams of My Father would be significantso much so that the book's language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers own writings. Even the caveat at the beginning of Dreams, in which Barack points out that he uses invented dialog, embellished facts, composite characters, inaccurate chronology, and pseudonyms to create approximation of reality, resembles Ayers defense of inaccuracies in. . .Fugitive Days . . .
Thanks for the citation.
Whoops! Imagine if the ghostwriter always got credit. There would be no “auto-biographies”.
