    Jeri Wright, the 48-year-old daughter of President Barack Obama’s mentor and former pastor Jeremiah Wright, is heading to jail. Free on bail while awaiting sentencing for money laundering in connection to a government-funded jobs training program, a U.S. District Court Judge found “there was probable cause to believe Wright committed a separate theft while on bail, thereby violating terms of her supervised release.” The new charges against Wright involve more sketchy bookkeeping. The Chicago Sun-Times reports: Prosecutors now say Wright was taking part in another scheme — this one involving ghost payrolling — even as she was standing trial. Between...

    Another day, another effort by an Obama supporter to portray Mitt Romney as weird. This time it's Brian Schweitzer, governor of Montana, in an interview with the Daily Beast. When Schweitzer "said Romney would have a 'tall order to position Hispanics to vote for him,' " reporter Ben Jacobs observed "that was mildly ironic since Mitt's father"--George W. Romney, who served as Michigan's governor from 1963-69 and sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1968--"was born in Mexico": Schweitzer replied that it is "kinda ironic given that his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico, but then he'd have to...

    The Washington Times recently reported that "the church where Sen. Barack Obama has worshipped for two decades publicly declares that its ministry is founded on a 1960s book that espouses ‘the destruction of the white enemy.’ Trinity United Church of Christ’s Web site says its teachings are based on the black liberation theology of James H. Cone and his 1969 book ‘Black Theology and Black Power.’ …Conrad Worrill, a leader of the Chicago-based National Black United Front, said…’I think most black people would agree that what Jeremiah Wright said is the truth.’" It sure is ironic, then, that a parishioner...

    The palaces of kings are built on the ruins of the bowers of paradise.Thomas Paine In my recent column "Pulpit Racism Leads Blacks To Destruction," I dealt with the racism coming from many black preachers. The hate-filled anti-American sermons of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. and other wolves in sheep's clothing have been exposed. Yet, there still remains an unspoken disease infecting the black church – the racism in the pews.
  • Wright Appearance Sparks More Rejection From Obama, Recriminations By Critics

    Barack Obama on Monday once again distanced himself from his retired pastor, Jeremiah Wright, as the reverend grabbed the spotlight for the fourth day in a row by suggesting the furor around his controversial remarks is an attack on black churches in America. Plagued by the ongoing uproar regarding Wright, Obama said Wright does not represent his views or vice versa. “I have said before and I will repeat again that what some of the comments that Reverend Wright have made offend me and I understand why they’ve offended the American people,’ Obama told reporters while traveling in Wilmington, N.C....

    It should be obvious to everyone in the country now who the real racists are. When a preacher who preaches Afrocentrism and hatred of America is cheered by blacks both in all-black churches and by blacks on TV, we see who they are. when a black candidate for president is voted for by 90% of black people simply because of his skin color, we see who they are. This same candidate was getting fully half of the votes of those of us who are white, oriental and Hispanic. That’s been changing with the changing view. When we look at Obama...
  • Will Rush Limbaugh Be Indicted for Voter Fraud?

    As Ohio election officials investigate illegal crossover voting in the 2008 primary, questions arise on Rush Limbaugh's role. Limbaugh, the nation's top-rated talk radio host, was urging Republicans in Texas and Ohio to skip their party's primary on March 4 and instead cast a vote for Hillary Clinton in order to prolong the fight between her and Barack Obama. What Limbaugh encouraged Republican voters to do in Ohio was a fifth-degree felony in that state, punishable with a $2,500 fine and six to 12 months in jail. On Thursday, March 20, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the "Cuyahoga County...

    Have Republicans found their golden ticket to the White House this year? The same GOP ad-men who turned John Kerry's Vietnam service into a political liability and tied decorated veteran Max Cleland (who lost three limbs fighting the Viet Cong) to terror leader Osama bin Laden believe the Rev. Jerimiah Wright has made their jobs much, much easier this year. Some are even starting to believe that Barack Obama, who attended Wright's church for two decades, would be an easier Democrat to beat than Hillary Clinton, who's been a catalyst for right-wing vitriol going on two decades now. Don't expect...

    From the very start, Barack Obama's attempt to distance himself from the controversial sermonizing and policies of his pastor Jeremiah Wright has resembled someone trying to thread a needle. When asked at the Democratic debate in Cleveland about the racist Louis Farrakhan's endorsement of his candidacy, Obama's visage became strained, and his subsequent response to the question about whether he agreed with the views of Farrakhan, was measured, pained, judicious and less
