THE ACCENT... THE ANGER... THE ACCUSATIONS... THE SERMON...
THE SHOUT OUT TO REV. WRIGHT, WHO IS IN AUDIENCE...
'My pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He's a friend and a great leader. Not just in Chicago, but all across the country'..
FOXNEWS 9 PM ET...
'We don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs. We should be investing in minority-owned businesses, in our neighborhoods'...
“probably one of the few things to energize blacks who may have stayed home on election day. I guess well see.”
The 47% hate America anyway.
Everyone knows Obama is a racist — or could be shown a video of Obama lynching a white girl and would still declare him not racist.
Anti-Israel would have been the only bombshell, really.
In September 2011, Breitbart News doubled its reward--to $100,000--for one of the missing pieces of Barack Obamas past, which may be the key to understanding his collapsing Middle East policy: the Khalidi tape, a video kept under wraps by the Los Angeles Times since April 2008.
The ties between Obama and Khalidi are deep, going back to the days when Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund with former terrorist Bill Ayers, and provided funds for Khalidis Arab American Action Network.
I remember.. I thought maybe Eric Holder stuff.

Contrary to claims, Obama very close with racist preacher Wright
By Warner Todd Huston
Many in the newsmedia are reacting with quite restraint to the revelations of comments by Obam’s racist “spiritual mentor,” Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Jr. Imagine if this were a Republican politician linked to such outrageous talk and you’ll realize how the MSM has been studiously underplaying this controversy. A benefit of the doubt seems to be the rule of thumb for how the media is treating Obama, a benefit that would be denied a GOP candidate.
But, as ABC’s Jake Tapper asked concerning Obama’s knowledge of Wright’s racist rants: What did Obama know and when did he know it? In this posting Tapper finds that Obama was distancing himself from Wright a year ago causing the question to be raised if Obama long ago wondered if Wright would be a liability? But, there is video of Obama lovingly introducing Wright even after that proving not only that Obama is very, very close to Rev. Wright, but also that he was not distancing himself from the man at all.
On June 5th, 2007, Senator Barack Obama spoke before 8,000 people gathered in Hampton University’s Convocation Center. Most of them were pastors and ministers attending a conference there.
He was there to speak on mostly post Katrina issues and to criticize the Bush administration’s efforts during that natural disaster. Obama tried his catch phrase of the moment, saying that a “quiet riot” might be occurring in America and he affirmed that he felt that America was a racist nation, that the reaction to Katrina had just “pulled back the screen” on America’s racism. Obama also used rhetoric heavily doused with religious symbolism.
But, that boiler plate aside, there was two very interesting segments in Obama’s remarks concerning his racist “spiritual mentor,” Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Jr. that are not getting the press it deserves. (See the video at Channel 2 News Chicago)
He was effusive in his praise and admiration for Wright, this foaming at the mouth, hate monger. This runs contrary to his late claims that he is somehow shocked by Wright’s racism, or that he now disagrees with him as well as his claim that he was not familiar enough with Wright to know of his point of view.
As the speech kicked off (at 1:07 into the video), Obama introduced the Rev. Wright to the audience with these glowing and highly personal words:
And then I’ve got to give a special shout out to my Pastor. The guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He’s a friend and a great leader not just in Chicago but all across the country, so please everybody give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Jr., Trinity United Church of Christ.
Where’s he at? There he is. That’s him, that’s him right there.
You wearing a suit today, right?
This reveals a very intimate portrait of Obama and Wright’s relationship. Notice the last bit where Obama jokes about Wright’s penchant for wearing an Afrocentric style of dress and that his wearing of a suit at that event was uncommon. These are the remarks of a close friend to another loved intimate, not the words of a man making perfunctory comments.
Later in his comments Obama mentioned Wright again. (At 13:43 in the video)
You know, I’ve been on a journey trying to get at the truth that question for a long time. I mention Rev. Wright... I first met Rev. Wright when I moved to Chicago after college.
And that’s where I met Rev. Wright and started going to Trinity United Church of Christ and he helped me on another journey and introduced me to someone named Jesus Christ. And I learned that my sins could be redeemed. I learned that those things that I was too weak to accomplish myself, maybe he could accomplish them for me if I placed my trust in him. And I learned that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things when they believe in him and they come together and are guided by him.
So, we see that Obama obviously had a close, long-term relationship with Wright not a casual one where Obama might have missed the Reverend’s long-standing agenda.
It is also interesting that Obama’s rhetoric was so steeped in evangelical Christian rhetoric. Isn’t a “fanatic” Christianity one of the charges so often leveled by the left against president Bush? Don’t they so often say that he is somehow too religious? And, how often did we hear from the MSM how “controversial” Bush (or any Republican) was for delivering a speech before Bob Jones University?
And remember, Bush just went to make a single speech at Bob Jones University and the media slammed him for months afterward. Yet, Barack has had an intimate, 20-year relationship with Wright who has vehemently called for God to damn America and the media yawns at the news.
In light of the criticism of Bush’s injecting “too much religion” in his presidency or that his administration is just like a “Christian Taliban”, it is also a legitimate question to ask, where are those same accusers when this 2007 speech by Barack Obama is so filled with religious fervor? Where are the anti-religious left and the so-called separation of Church and Staters at now?
In fact, this entire speech is filled with nothing but class warfare, expansions of social programs, raising the minimum wage, typical great society type junk all couched squarely as a civic responsibility enmeshed with Obama’s view of Biblical precepts.
Now, as far as what Obama knew of Rev. Wright’s racist comments and when he knew it, ABC’s Jake Tapper is right on when he notes that Obama had dis-invited Wright from delivering the public invocation at his candidacy announcement more than a year ago. This obviously reveals that Obama had begun to distance himself from Wright before he announced formally for the presidency. It is plain that Obama knew of Wright’s problematic ranting long before his sudden claim that he is shocked by Wright’s past rhetoric.
Unfortunately for the truth, when the questions were finally put to him on March 14th, Obama played dumb saying, “I wasn’t in church during the time that these statement were made. I did not hear such incendiary language myself, personally. Either in conversations with him or when I was in the pew, he always preached the social gospel. ... If I had heard them repeated, I would have quit. ... If I thought that was the repeated tenor of the church, then I wouldn’t feel comfortable there.”
Even back in April of 2007 The New York Times quoted Wright that he’d already talked with Barack about his controversial relationship with the ranting Reverend.
“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”
This fully reveals that Wright understands that his views are controversial, that Barack was fully aware of them, and that they are both complicit in trying to cover up these facts in order to fool people into a false perception of the truth.
But, as the video from Chicago’s Channel 2 shows that, until recently, Obama never did fully separate himself from Rev. Wright.
With all the proof of how Barack Obama has been so close to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Jr. for the last 20 years, it stretches credulity to imagine that Obama never heard of Wright’s hatespeech before. And as Wright blames whites for all the ills of the black community, while Wright claims that America deserved 9/11 and that whites created AIDS to kill blacks, Obama has the gall to claim that it’s everyone else stirring the racial rhetoric.
Watch this speech by Obama and see who is stirring the racial rhetoric. During his own campaign, Obama has cleaned up Wright’s racist hate but make no mistake that the message that Wright has so often bellowed from the pulpit is nearly identical to Obama’s on the campaign trail. Obama has learned well from Rev. Wright. He’s learned well, indeed.
The conservative blogosphere is aflame with Obama’s links to Wright. But the biggest question is: will the Mainstream Media let this controversy die, will they decide it’s “old news” like they do so very often, or will they pursue it, connecting the dots, like they should?
What do you think?

I’m sorry but reading comments is annoying me. The wrong tape, everyone saying how it won’t matter. Can we please follow along? It’s not the tape about the unborn baby being shot. It does seem to be racial in character. It does seem to tie him more to Rev Wright. It does sound anti white.
Hannity just on with Levin. Beginning to look like the video up on YouTube follows his written remarks above (delivered from notes not teleprompter). The impromptu remarks were the ones not in his notes and where he when off on Whitey being the source of all black problems.
Drudge did put the siren up. It’s down now, but it was flashing as he first posted and added bits and pieces.
He was effusive in his praise and admiration for Wright, this foaming at the mouth, hate monger. This runs contrary to his late claims that he is somehow shocked by Wrights racism, or that he now disagrees with him as well as his claim that he was not familiar enough with Wright to know of his point of view.
As the speech kicked off (at 1:07 into the video), Obama introduced the Rev. Wright to the audience with these glowing and highly personal words:
And then Ive got to give a special shout out to my Pastor. The guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. Hes a friend and a great leader not just in Chicago but all across the country, so please everybody give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Jr., Trinity United Church of Christ.
Wheres he at? There he is. Thats him, thats him right there.
Nope, it is about Obama.
Glenn Beck has been beating that drum for years.. That there’s no way 0bama could sit in Wright’s church for 20 YEARS then deny he’s allied with him. This shatters that lie now doesn’t it..
Back up in “Breaking” again.
THE ACCENT... THE ANGER... THE ACCUSATIONS...
Interesting ..... he had ended the speech it looked like. I wonder what prompted him to ‘go off’ and who did the filming! :-)
That's the first I heard of what was on the tape. Thanks!
That is the same thing that Chuck Schumer employed against Al D'Amato in New York when Rep. Schumer challenged Sen. D'Amato for his seat.
D'Amato went on the Imus show talking about the OJ trial and judge Lance Ito, and D'Amato made "ching chong" jokes about Ito in a mock Japanese accent. He followed this up by calling Schumer a "putz-head," which Schumer was able to use against D'Amato as a Yiddish slur against Jews.
When this tape comes out, we need to say that Chuck Schumer used this nonsense to drive out Republicans, so why is it okay when a Democrat does it? Get Schumer on the record to explain why it was wrong when D'Amato did it but okay when Obama does it.
Did I say anything about an unborn baby being shot? If it ties him more to "Rev" Wright, the stuff I have archived on Wright and his so-called "Black Liberation" is more important than ever. YOU need to follow along.
Drudge calling it "Obomas other race speech. "
“and introduced me to a man named Jesus Christ”
The Christ isn’t a man.
Hillary’s so deep in this .... her name is on documents ... Breitbart trying to get copies, calls it Stevens ‘death warrant’. If Hillary goes down politically & she knows she can’t come back, I think she and Bill will do what they can to make Obummer’s life miserable. They hate the guy ... probably as much as he hates them, despite all the ‘bro hugging’ going on at the convention!
My comments were in general not to you .
If the tease at the top is correct, this time it's another Obama lie.
Last time, he just sat in the audience and didn't hear the sermons, or he wasn't there on those days.
This time, we know Obama to be the serial liar that he is. It won't be about who Wright is, it will be about how Obama lied last time about Wright, and how he's lied about everything in his administration over the last 4 years.
I'd throw Obama's other big lie from 2008 out there, and use this to say, "So what about that guy down the street, Bill Ayers? Were you lying about your relationship with him in 2008, too?"
OK, I see what you mean. Sorry about that. Well, we'll know in just under 2 hours what's on the tape. However, Obama has praised communist, so-called "Black Liberation" in the past. Of course he didn't outright say it was communist...
Tucker is a pretty good judge. I trust his assessment.
What white America feared about Barack Obama is coming true. Obama is a racist at heart.
Only in Obama’s mind.
But He is a man. That was part of the sacrifice, to become a flesh and blood man. He gave up his glory to become flesh.
Both man and God. The incarnation.
Hopefully those “on the fence” and some of those that think they are part of his plan will awaken and realize they are not and are the object of his hate.
This is significant because he threw wright under the bus. Meanwhile he’s up at the podium talking just like him. This video makes quite clear which people he advocates for. Wonder how “articulate” biden thinks he is in that video.
I remember Rush going on about O’s hate for the suburbs in early August . . . I definitely remember it because we were listening while driving DD to college.
He's not just a racist. He, like Ayers and damn near everyone else in Obamaland, is a COMMUNIST.
Sorry folks who've seen this a billion times, I need to get this out again. There apparently are STILL a lot of people around who don't get it, or perhaps not read about it yet...
The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]
(some key excerpts)
["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."
Source: The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine:
The MSM will dismiss the recording as “old news”, and “we’ve heard it all before”, and then, they’ll move on to news about the debate on Wednesday and the post-debate discussions on Thursday.
Neither Obama nor democrat leaders nor the MSM will give it much attention, and they’ll just dismiss it with, “Is that all you got? Next!”.
Im reading as Drudge adds more teases and it sounds pretty good. Obama is a racist leftist, and all he does is lie and put on a “moderate” persona to get elected. It’s very vile. This is why so many of his leftist policies and appointments come to the surface because he is all leftism and victimhood to bring down America. And he’s damn close to succeeding.
Maybe not IF some Super PAC’s take audio AND video and literally carpet bomb the airways with their war chest of $$$. The MSM can’t hide that. They can only refuse to air any PAC or GOP commercial but they don’t do that often do they?
Maybe it will be O’s “swiftboat” out of office and to wherever the heck he heads to.
I think there will be more videos to follow in the coming weeks that should just about seal the victory for Romney.
Nothing that O said on film back then could be bad for anyone but O.
I don’t see that there’s anything at all in that video that would bother a Democrat in the slightest. He still exhibits all the “good” qualities that they love... like: pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-Islam, anti-America, anti-business, anti-gun, anti-free speech, etc.
So the video’s been out there for four years?
Hannity gets a tough time here and I personally can’t really listen to him, but he was on this black liberation theology thing four years ago when virtually nobody else was willing to pick it up.
I don’t disagree with you, but I have yet to hear 0bama say it.
too bad they won’t just pre-empt O’Reilly and let Hannity air at 7 and BOR @ 8 (central time). LOL
For those of us who have cancelled our cable service - I found a link that says they will be showing it - I hope it works, because the suspense is killing me.
I can hear the MSM response, if they even touch it, just another Republican witch hunt they will say.
BUT I LOVE IT!!!
It is a 1 for me! If the video is only of Obambi speaking to a bunch of Holder’s people.
It was made six years ago according to the title.
Excerpts of the speech have been on youtube for years - 4 and 7 minute excerpts. The unedited speech is 40 minutes long, and that’s what is apparently being released tonight.
If it’s this “dramatic” wonder why it didn’t come out the first time around?
I agree. He has been trying harder than some/most in the media when it comes to exposing Obama. Probably Hannity and Trump and Sheriff Joe too. The rest, crickets. Well maybe Beck too.
