    An American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Board Member in Colorado has resigned after making national news headlines for urging people to kill Donald Trump supporters. Loring Wirbel of Colorado Springs, posted on Facebook, “The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before Election Day.’ They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force…”

    Barack Obama did not bring us to this first circle of hell on his own. He was aided and abetted by 1) an education system with a relentless propaganda agenda, 2) a media oligopoly that has completely abrogated its First Amendment responsibility and 3) a celebrity dominated culture that is largely a product of the first two. We begin today with a look at: I. The Education System In a previous post I covered how the public education system fell under the thrall of postmodernism – simply a new name for all the old socialist/communist/relativist claptrap. Some of the...

    The Sierra Club has announced its approval for a "one-time" use of civil disobedience. The civil disobedience is intended to step up their efforts to oppose the Keystone pipeline. Many of the other groups opposing Keystone have been engaging in civil disobedience as a tactic, including arson-based ecoterrorism. This will be the first time in the Sierra Club's history that they have approved violating the law.

    Can it all be coincidence? By Don Fredrick web posted October 8, 2012 As I noted in the introduction to my book, The Obama Timeline, a jury at a murder trial will often find the accumulated circumstantial evidence so overwhelming that a guilty verdict is obvious—even though there may be no witness to the crime. "The jurors in the Scott Peterson trial believed the collection of evidence more than they believed Scott Peterson. Among other things, the jury thought that being arrested with $15,000 in cash, recently-dyed hair, a newly-grown goatee, four cell phones, camping equipment, a map to a...

    Let’s take a trip via the wayback machine to the hallowed classrooms of the University of Chicago Law School. The year is 1996, and a young lecturer named Barack Obama is teaching constitutional law to a group of students. His first final exam question is about whether homosexuals can be barred from receiving state health care coverage for their infertility treatments. The question deals with a hypothetical lesbian couple that wants to have a baby. Their state prevents health providers from providing infertility treatments for unwed couples; the couple’s state-provided healthcare therefore refuses them coverage for such procedures Obama then...

    URBANA — In a move that hasn’t happened for years, University of Illinois Board of Trustees voted to deny a professor emeritus status Thursday. Chairman Chris Kennedy of Chicago, son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, said he would not vote for emeritus status for University of Illinois at Chicago Professor William Ayers. The rest of the trustees agreed to vote no, without discussion.

    In a very unusual move, University of Illinois trustees Thursday denied giving emeritus status to controversial retired professor William Ayers. The vote, at a U. of I. board meeting in Urbana, was unanimous and came after a passionate speech by board chair Christopher Kennedy, who invoked the 1968 assassination of his father, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, in saying that he was voting his conscience. While trustees regularly vote on emeritus appointments, they rarely comment about them. But in an emotional statement, Kennedy discussed his reasons for voting against Ayers' request. "I am guided by my conscience and one which has...

    URBANA, Ill. (AP) — The University of Illinois on Thursday denied 1960s radical William Ayers emeritus faculty status after trustees Chairman Christopher Kennedy noted Ayers dedicated a book to, among others, the man who killed Kennedy’s father, Robert F. Kennedy. All nine voting trustees either opposed granting Ayers, a recently retired University of Illinois-Chicago professor, the largely honorary status or abstained from the vote. Universities often grant emeritus status to distinguished retired faculty members. At Illinois it doesn’t come with any monetary benefits, spokesman Tom Hardy said. Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, an anti-war group held responsible for a series...

Gingrich's comment sparked off Dinesh D'Souza's Forbes article, which argues that America is "governed by the ghost" of Obama's "Luo tribesman" father.

    Dinesh D'Souza has long been one of America's shrewdest and bravest political observers. His much discussed Forbes article, "How Obama Thinks," a prelude to his forthcoming book, The Roots of Obama's Rage, burnishes that reputation. Indeed, Newt Gingrich describes D'Souza's thesis as the "most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama." In the article, D'Souza argues that President Obama has absorbed much of his governing philosophy from his socialist, "anticolonial" father, Barack Obama Sr. "According to Obama," writes D'Souza, "his dream is his father's dream. Notice that his title is not Dreams of My...

    As the Obama administration enters its second year, I -- and undoubtedly millions of others -- have struggled to develop a shorthand term that captures our emotional unease. Defining this discomfort is tricky. I reject nearly the entire Obama agenda, but the term "being opposed" lacks an emotional punch. Nor do terms like "worried" or "anxious" apply. I was more worried about America's future during the Johnson or Carter years, so it's not that dictionary, either. Nor, for that matter, is this about backroom odious deal-making and pork, which are endemic in American politics.

While what Ayres did should not be dismissed or ignored, the fact is Senator Obama has rightly deplored his "despicable acts." End of story. Right?Not so fast.

He once sent a dead fish to a pollster who displeased him. At a dinner to celebrate Bill Clinton’s 1992 election, Emanuel repeatedly stabbed the table with a steak knife, shouting the names of his political enemies.

Why is it, then, that Democratic politicians and their liberal allies pooh-pooh the Bill Ayres issue as a “distraction”? Why is they mock demands for...

(Somehow I'm prompted to wonder what they'd say if McCain were a friend of a 1940s Nazi prison camp guard.)

It is hard to think of any presidential candidate before Barack Obama sporting associations with three more execrable characters. Yet let the McCain campaign raise the issue, and the mainstream media begin fulminating about dirty campaigning tinged with racism and McCarthyite guilt by association. But associations are important. They provide a significant insight into character. They are particularly relevant in relation to a potential president as new, unknown, opaque and self-contained as Obama. With the economy overshadowing everything, it may be too late politically...

    Campaign Finance: Sources of more than $190 million in Obama election contributions are unidentified. Will a federal investigation find foreigners illegally rigging the most important presidential election in history?

    This is Bernardine Dohrn. I’m going to read A DECLARATION OF A STATE OF WAR. This is the first communication from the Weatherman underground. All over the world, people fighting Amerikan imperialism look to Amerika’s youth to use our strategic position behind enemy lines to join forces in the destruction of the empire. Black people have been fighting almost alone for years. We’ve known that our job is to lead white kids into armed revolution. We never intended to spend the next five or twenty-five years of our lives in jail. Ever since SDS became revolutionary, we’ve been trying to...

    Univ. of Chicago Press Release, 2002: Obama was a Community Organizer in NY Many researchers and reporters have highlighted Obama’s secrecy about his years at Columbia University in New York City. In our recent article on Obama’s friendship with William Ayers, I wrote: Now the Mainstream Media is onto this story too, and has (finally) noticed that Obama is hiding records from Columbia University, where he completed his undergraduate studies after transferring from Occidental College in California. To be more precise, it’s not just Obama’s academic files that are missing, but more curiously, the files of his life. The Wall...

    University of Chicago ^ | 9/6/1997 | Jennifer Vanasco
    (Golden Oldie HT Matt Drudge) William Ayers, author of A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court (Beacon Press, 1997), says "We should call a child a child. A 13-year-old who picks up a gun isn't suddenly an adult. We have to ask other questions: How did he get the gun? Where did it come from?" Ayers, who spent a year observing the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago, is one of four panelists who will speak on juvenile justice at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the C-Shop. The panel, which marks the 100th anniversary...
  • Axelrod's comment makes Ayres relevant (Vanity)

    I didn’t thinks Ayres should be the focus now but Axelrod’s comment that Obama didn’t know Ayres’ history does fit nicely into an ad that ties things together. Something like this: Opening: Rev. Wrights' GD American vid. Voice over: “For 20 years Barak Obama attended Rev Wright’s church but claims he never knew of Wright’s hate.” Picture: Ayres standing on the American flag Voice over: “Obama’s campaign now claims he didn’t know about terrorist Bill Ayres’ history when they met. Yet he continued their association for several years and recently praised Ayres.” Picture: Rezko and Obama property Voice over: “Obama...

    Our economy is a mess in large part because of economic social engineering forced on the financial markets through Freddie and Fannie. Ayres isn’t an elected official or official advisor to Obama. Ayres, like Rev. Wright, is a mere symptom, a visible clue, like a canker sore, of Obama’s underlying decease of socialism. Wright was a 20 year canker sore brought to light, yet voters still misdiagnosed the problem. Until voters see the underlying decease of socialism, their treatment will be a dose of Obama and more Democrats in the House and Senate. The Democrats compelling Freddie and Fannie to...
  • McCain Camp: Cleaver or foolish leading up to Tuesday's debate? (Vanity)

    The talk about Ayres from the McCain camp leading up to Tuesday debate is either a brilliant rope-a-dope by McCain or a fatal 11th hour miscalculation by his campaign. Let me start by stating Obama’s association with Ayres should disqualify Obama as a serious presidential candidate BUT it doesn’t. Sadly, a 20 year association with Rev. Wright didn’t despite damning vids and the Ayres connection won’t either. Trust me; Obama would much rather debate his association with Ayres at the debate than have McCain do what the MSM has refused to do … lay out how the Democrats got us...
  • POLITICO Exclusive: Obama To Preempt McCain Assault (Obama To Go HEAVY NEGATIVE!)

    Politico ^ | 10-04-08 | Mike Allen
    Branding his opponent as “erratic in a crisis,” Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is preempting plans by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to portray him as having sinister connections to controversial Chicagoans. Obama officials call it political jujitsu – turning the attacks back on the attacker. McCain officials had said early in the weekend that they plan to begin advertising after Tuesday’s debate that will tie Obama to convicted money launderer Tony Rezko and former Weathermen radical William Ayers. But Obama isn’t waiting to respond. His campaign is going up Monday on national cable stations with a scathing ad saying: “Three quarters...

    During the April 16 debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, moderator George Stephanopoulos brought up “a gentleman named William Ayers,” who “was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He’s never apologized for that.” Stephanopoulos then asked Obama to explain his relationship with Ayers. Obama’s answer: “The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.” Obama was indeed only eight in...
