REVISITING THE OBAMA-AYERS CONNECTION
Powerlineblog ^ | July 3, 2014 | Paul Mirengof

Posted on 07/04/2014 7:43:36 AM PDT by libstripper

Many of you probably watched portions, if not all of, Megyn Kelly’s interviews with Bill Ayers, the unrepentant domestic terrorist of yesteryear. Kelly did her usual excellent job of pressing Ayers on his violent past.

But Stanley Kurtz wishes she had pressed Ayers more about his relationship with Barack Obama. For, as Kurtz points out, Ayers and Obama had a much tighter political alliance than Ayers admitted to on Kelly’s show.

Kelly focused on Ayers’ fundraiser for Obama’s first political campaign, rather than their time together on several left-leaning Chicago foundation boards. This is understandable — anyone can sit beside someone else on this or that board.

But Kurtz demonstrated in his book Radical-in-Chief that Ayers and Obama weren’t just fellow board members; they were left-wing soul mates who used their power to place each other in positions where they could radically affect the education received by children in Chicago.

Megyn could ans should run an entire show on the Mahdi's connections with Bill Ayers. If she did her job it would show the two have been active accomplices going all the way back to the start of the Mahdi's career in Chicago. This article only shows a part of it. Another is that Ayers ghost wrote Dreams from my Father, the first book the Mahdi allegedly wrote.

Ayers and King Obama are of the same mind. King Obama is a communist black Muslim Terrorists and has destroyed much of America. He must be impeached and the communists democrats in the Senate must be exposed for what they are. The entire democratic party are equivalent to terrorists.

Perhaps so, but the focus of the show in question was not apparently so much to tie Obama to Ayres as expose Ayres for the unapologetic terrorist he is. Let people not already in the know wrap their heads around that part, then show who hobnobs with the terrorist.

Without the former, the latter won't mean anything.

With it, the Pres__ent has been hanging with the mad bomber.

Seems pretty obvious that Megyn doesn’t participate in FR forum discussions or she may have had a lot more insight into how to approach this pos. Approach with the pointy end towards the enemy.

Stanley Kurtz appears to be the only journalist that has been awake for the past decade. I would be curious how many times the IRS has audited him in that time.

My impression is that she has only recently been lured toward the right side (as a non boob-toob watcher I am at a disadvantage). Hasn’t her politics been center-left?

Funniest scene in Aneruca is the early Ayers trying to talk with a Negro accent. If I heard and saw right. Didn't have my distance glasses and my hearing isn't what it used to be.

Hasn’t Ayers been a frequent visitor to the Obama Whitehouse? She should have mentioned that!

I would agree that Ayers is presumably no longer violent, such behavior tends to pass with age. But, I see no evidence to suggest that Obama is no longer a Marxist. Only a few ever turn from their Communist core beliefs though they may wear a different colored coat as disguise. Obama will be a Marxist until the day he dies.

obama’s very secret history while at Columbia in the 80’s - and his connection to “student” radicals - has never been publicly investigated. Obama claims he was a “child” during the heyday of the Weather Underground. But by the 80’s when he was at Columbia, they had morphed into various radical splinter groups and causes, and were active in NY.

Nor has the involvement of Ayers and full details of his wife Bernadine in the Brinks robbery and murders been fully exposed. Especially since Ayers and his wife raised Kathy Boudin’s son “Chesa” after she went to jail (an “Oxford scholar” and admirer of Hugo Chavez)

Notice how Ayers smiled his creepy little smile when Megyn asked him about his involvement in robbery

Most people don’t see his malignant personality and accept his words at face value. He is a sub human manipulator of the first order.

Ayers is violent- and a master manipulator (think Charlie Manson but without obvious insanity and a PhD). He thinks (and always thought) he is too smart to get his own hands dirty so he manipulates others into making and planting the bombs and planning the robberies. In addition to targeted citizens, some of his acolytes died doing his dirty work, including his girlfriend prior to Bernadine. IN fact Bernadine another “Squeeky Fromme” sociopath was among his most zealous acolytes and went to jail for refusing to rat out the gang that killed 3 people in the Brinks robbery, even though Bernadine stole the identity that was used to rent the getaway car.

This sociopathic behavior does not go away with age. Especially when Ayers/Dohrn have manipulated themselves into being anti-establishment heroes among left wing academics and wealthy red diaper trust fund babies and their connection to grants from wealthy foundations like Annenberg for Ayers’ “education” programs

Hoping the next administration will open Ayer’s case and go for it.

dream on
obama’s race and the complicity of top dems like pelosi and reid in foisting him on America by circumventing the US Constitution will innoculate obama and his twisted life and “friends” for life

If (big if) we get a GOP president, the narrative will be “Let’s just move on”

So, he’s still blowing people up? Who would that be?

He should hang for his crimes, but won’t. That doesn’t mean that he is still committing those crimes.

.
It showed in her interviews on the subject of Islam.

Her main objective was always to expose Islam’s treatment of women but Islam’s destructive history and present-day terrorist threat to the entire world was not discussed.

Her dialogue with Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR showed that she was ill-prepared to reason with an unreasonable person.

After spending yesterday afternoon in the ER for high blood pressure that was not responding to my meds, I find it comforting and very necessary to remind myself,continually, that God is on His Throne, sees all, knows all, and that there is a Judgement coming.

oh, he’s still tied in with folks who are blowing people up... as is his blushing formerly-Jewish-changed-the-family-name bride, Bernadine

wherever there is virulent anti-Semitism (ironic given Bernadine’s family geneaology which would get her beheaded if captured alone) or anti Americanism you may find the Ayers family

anyone who hates America is a natural ally of Bill Ayers and whatever support he can give them

Obama lied during the 2008 election and said he did not know Ayers. Yet, after the election he claimed they met weekly.

Ayers just lied to Kelly and said he did not know Obama, yet, they shared and office together and Obama already said he lived in the same neighborhood and met weekly.

See extensive discussion on related thread speculating that Megyn may have something linking Barry to Ayers and his co-conspirator Budin:

Will Megyn Kelly Help Bring Ayers to Justice?
