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...

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?
