Deconstructing Bill Ayers
American Thinker ^ | October 18, 2013 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 10/18/2013 1:54:00 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

Having buried their mutual involvement in the CAC, Ayers, not surprisingly, fails to mention my assertion that in Dreams Obama perfectly mimics Ayers's sentiments on education. In fact, Obama reproduced virtually meme for meme the specific ideas Ayers outlined in a 1994 essay titled "Navigating a restless sea: The continuing struggle to achieve a decent education for African American youngsters in Chicago."

A one-time merchant seaman, Ayers had a penchant for words like "navigating." He ribs me as the "great brain" who discovered "those infamous maritime references" -- an apparent laugh line. As Ayers knows, however, those references are not so easily dismissed.

At the end of the day, I found in both Dreams and in Ayers's books the following shared words: fog, mist, ships, sinking ships, seas, sails, boats, oceans, calms, captains, charts, first mates, floods, shores, storms, streams, wind, waves, waters, anchors, barges, horizons, harbor, bays, ports, panoramas, moorings, tides, currents, voyages, narrower courses, uncertain courses, and things howling, wobbling, fluttering, sinking, leaking, cascading, swimming, knotted, ragged, tangled, boundless, uncharted, turbulent, and murky.

Empirical proof or crackpot confirmation? You decide. If nothing else, I suspect my exposure of this nautical tic made Ayers at least a little self-conscious. Public Enemy is all but devoid of such references.

The author of this piece, Jack Cashill, is responsible for uncovering and establishing that likelihood.

I also read that Ayers, who lived across the street from Obumbo, helped him to finance his home.
As most recall, Ayers was one of the Pentagon bombers.
Ayers/Obama...strange bedfellows? It is not strange at all.

These bomb throwing radicals always have had cute words for bad things. One of the 90s era was a concept and term called “River Keeper” that benevolent soul charged with keeping the river basin free of nasty human influence.

In reality, they were “River Nazis” and their intended realms were not just meant to be the river and basins, but far far up into the feeding watersheds, extending miles in every direction. Had this concept actually gone into execution, virtually all river and stream areas in the whole country would have come under capricious control by zealots. They were even in the process of redefining what the term ‘navigable’ meant. But, this was the Clinton doctrine and it is hidden back in that trunk of dead ideas (for later use).

Today’s, ‘Navigators’ are nothing more than DEATH who pilots the barge across the River Styx to the Gates of Hell.

Until the one day something (or several somethings) touch him, oh-so personally and undeniably. On that day, the tapestry of lies will unravel, and violently so.

And so I watch, and wait for such a day, and tell others what I've learned about this fraud in the meantime.

"1981 “Guilty as hell. Free as a bird. America is a great country,” Ayers said when interviewed by David Horowitz."

I just don't understand why these scumbags were allowed to skate. Even during the Reagan era, as evinced by the above quote? We could've all been spared a whole lotta grief if Ayers and all of his fellow bomber travelers had been sent away for very lengthy prison sentences (or more), and Billy never met Barky.

This is probably a very accurate outing of Obama’s ghostwriter. When Joe Klein’s anonymous novel about the Clintons was published, the entire book was analyzed against the works of many Washington journalists. Sure enough, Klein was identified as the author because of his own journalistic “tells.” Klein was outed and he admitted to being the author.

Ayers will never write a good book, however, until he commits to writing a truthful one...

He'll also never write a good book until he gives up the phony balony victim crap... Outside Hyde Park that kind of wallowing in self pity - even with all it's left wing extremist grandiosity - looks silly on a man over the age of 15...

and who was W. Haywood Burns? He represented the black radical Angela Davis against charges of kidnapping and murder, and coordinated the defense for inmates indicted in the Attica prison riot.



He was the husband of Jennifer Ellen Dohrn, a midwife and professor of Nursing at Columbia University.



and Jennifer is the sister of convicted domestic terrorist bomber and distinguished professor Bernardine Dohrn, who is married to the scumbag Ayers.

A two years later Ayers and Dohrn lived in the same neighborhood as Obama in Manhattan and both active in radical politics. Ayers was at the Bank Street College of Education, Obama hanging around Columbia and admittedly involved in radical Left politics. Then Obama stays in Manhattan in the same neighborhood even longer and Ayers then attends Columbia University Teachers College a few blocks north of Bank Street College. Who would believe that they didn’t know each other even back then? Ayers was most likely his “friend from the neighborhood” not first in Chicago, but a decade earlier in Manhattan.

If Ayers is so bold as to be buried in a grave he dies, that would be one grave I would definitely pi$$ and dump on, if I happened upon it.

I used to think this of Jimmy Carter, but this Ayers is an order of magnitude worse than Carter.

....’eliminate 25 million people...and they were dead serious...

Uploaded on Oct 29, 2008

In 1969, Weather Underground founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn (who were to become Pres. Obama’s personal friends and associates for many years) put Charles Manson on the cover of their occasional newspaper, “Fire”. At what was billed as a “War Council” in Flint Michigan that same year, Ayers and his comrades took to greeting eachother with “the fork” - four fingers pointed upwards, in honor of Manson. (Google Dohrn’s Flint conference quote on Manson - and Sharon Tate, who was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time.) In 1972 Ayers dedicated the WU’s manifesto, “Prairie Fire”, to his cultural and political heroes — a list which included Sen. Robert Kennedy’s assassin, Sirhan Sirhan.

Throughout their career as terrorist bombers, Ayers and Dohrn were constantly trying to break the Left free of its “bourgeois” commitment to any standard of justice or decency. By adopting Charles Manson as their own, by praising Manson as a hero of the counterculture, they hoped to smash the Left’s “bourgeois” ties to civilization and thus spark similar acts of horrific “revolutionary” violence against innocent people.

Over 400 people attended that Flint conference. Can’t help but wonder what positions they have now, unknown to anyone but each other...

It is my understanding that Ayers, a Chicago neighbor of Obama, wrote Obama’s Dreams book.”

‘Perhaps one of the biggest political stories of the year is being completely overlooked by the Obama-struck mass media. A new biography by veteran author Christopher Andersen, “Barack and Michelle: Portrait of a Marriage,” reveals that former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers wrote most, if not all of President Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father.”’

Anderson had multiple sources, close to the Obamas and—this is important—sympathetic to them—who confirmed that Ayers did the heavy lifting on Dreams. I.e.: he wrote it.

I was only addressing the authorship of Dreams. Cashill did yeoman’s work & sleuthed out the truth. Then Anderson, an author sympathetic to the Obamas, interviewed their friends in Chicago & confirmed Cashill’s deductions. For info on the house deal, nothing beats research. Dig into it, if you want to get to the bottom of it.

No, I have seen enough Obumbo muck and slime to last a lifetime. It would mean nothing, as the Commie MSM has him well shielded.
When he was first elected I did read a great deal about him from various internet sources. It does appear that the far left and criminal elements, such as Ayers, spent a number of years grooming their puppet-boy for the destruction of America.

I think Spielberg took a little shot at Cashill in his movie Lincoln when he had a bufoonish character accuse Lincoln of not writing something because it had a nautical reference and Licoln didn't "know beans about sailing" (or something like that).

Did anybody else catch that scene and see it the same way? It was very brief.

"I’d enjoy deconstructing Ayers. I’d start with a rusty hatchet."

I didn't have a hatchet laying around, but this may work in a pinch. ;)

Well according to Jim Geraghty, who is usually a pretty reliable researcher, it was Tony Rezko, not Ayers, who facilitated Obama’s house/mansion purchase:

"Did anybody else catch that scene and see it the same way? It was very brief."

I did not see "Lincoln," and now probably won't. I read Cashill's book "Deconstructing Obama" and can say with a very high degree of confidence that Cashill nailed Ayers as the author of "Dreams." The number of nautical references in Ayers' own work when matched up against "Dreams" has a mind-blowing number of agreeing terms.

Spielberg isn't impressed with Cashill's arguement? I don't believe it. If a subtle dig was inserted in "Lincoln" as you posit may be the case, that just demonstrates that Cashill got under Spielberg's skin.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that scene were a dog whistle written specifically for Obama and Ayers and a few others to appreciate.

And yes, as soon as I saw it my thoughts were 1) I saw what you did there, Mr. Spielberg, and 2) Looks like Cashill has gotten under their skin.
