  • What if the President was a FRAUD?

    What if... you woke up one morning and found out that the President of the United States was a USURPER... a FRAUD... a PHONY? What if... the leader of the free world was constitutionally ineligible to be President of the United States, but was simply allowed to take and hold office anyway? It's happening RIGHT NOW! The sad truth of the matter is that President-elect Barack Obama has REFUSED to provide proof that he is constitutionally qualified to hold the office! Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, states, "No person except a natural born Citizen,...

    I have been telling Brody File readers for months that if Barack Obama becomes the Democratic nominee he will make a pitch to win over independent/moderate Evangelicals. Well, we now have evidence. In Kentucky, he is making a direct appeal to Evangelicals with flyers that mention his conversion experience and they highlight a big old cross. Remember Mike Huckabee’s supposed subliminal cross in his Christmas campaign ad? Well, the Obama campaign ditches the subliminal and goes for the in your face cross. Look at the flyer here. The Obama campaign has consistently believed that their candidate can compete for the...
  • The Skeletons of Obama

    Here’s a quick run-down of some of Barack Obama’s questionable and disturbing associations: * Rabidly anti-Israel Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi. The Obamas were regular dinner guests at Khalidi’s Hyde Park home for years. * Terrorist sympathizer Ali Abunimah, who runs the viciously anti-Israel web site Electronic Intifada. * Unrepentant Weather Underground terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. * Reverend Jeremiah Wright. What more needs to be said? * Anti-Israel foreign policy adviser Samantha Power — fired after calling Hillary Clinton a “monster.” * Anti-Israel foreign policy adviser Robert Malley — fired when it was revealed he has been holding...

    I haven’t read much Karl Marx since the early 1980s, when I taught political philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. Still, it didn’t take me long this weekend to find my copy of “The Marx-Engels Reader,” edited by Robert C. Tucker — a book that was assigned in thousands of college courses in the 1970s and 80s, and that now must lie, unopened and un-remarked upon, on an awful lot of rec-room bookshelves. My occasion for spending a little time once again with the old Communist was Barack Obama’s now-famous comment at an April 6 San Francisco fund-raiser. Obama was...

    We at America Talks are launching a concerted effort to see to it that Barack Hussein Obama is not elected the next president of the United States. He is a dangerous individual who would do great harm to this country. Obama's associations with people of questionable character, his friendship with a racist pastor whose comments he claims he disavows, his plans to negotiate with and placate terrorists and terrorist sympathizers, leads us to believe that his not an honorable man who is looking out for the interests of our nation.

    If one were to sum up the campaign strategy of Barack Obama in a word, it would be "obfuscation." Obama's well-known empty platitudes, of course, serve to hide the man behind them by revealing no detail. His underlying "black rage" -- expressed more openly by his less politically-cunning wife -- is hidden beneath well-crafted loftiness. Now that he has been exposed as a fellow traveler of the America-loathing anti-Semite Jeremiah Wright, Obama's attempt at damage control relies once again on obfuscation. First, through an attempt to minimize the scope of Wright's hateful rants through such carefully chosen words as "occasionally"...

    One in 10 voters believes Barack Obama is Muslim, a mistaken impression that lingers across party lines, a poll showed. Fourteen percent of Republicans, 10 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of independents mistakenly think he is Muslim, according to a survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. Just over half of each group correctly identified him as Christian, while about a third said they don't know his religion. The false rumor that the Democratic presidential candidate and Illinois senator is Muslim has been fanned on the Internet and conservative talk radio. It has persisted despite the recent controversy over...

"Had the reverend not retired and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying there at the church," ...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Senator Barack Obama on Thursday blamed the fragile economy on “careless and incompetent execution” of the Iraq war, imploring voters in this swing state to consider the trickle-down economic consequences of the war as they choose a successor to President Bush. “When you’re spending over $50 to fill up your car because the price of oil is four times what it was before Iraq, you’re paying a price for this war,” Mr. Obama said to an audience at the University of Charleston. “When Iraq is costing each household about $100 a month, you’re paying a price for...

    Barack Obama’s journey to the White House should end after his speech yesterday on race. It was a speech that the Senator from Illinois certainly did not want to give, but had to thanks to the unending stream of anti-American, anti-White, and anti-Establishment rants by his former (sic) pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright that were (finally) shown the light of day by the mainstream media. These rants - captured on tape - show the good Reverend from the pulpit bashing just about everyone and everything in ‘mainstream’ America as his flock cheers the man on. Including Obama, or so it...

    WASHINGTON -- Hoping to prod Barack Obama into appearing on its show, "Fox News Sunday" launched the "Obama Watch," a weekly update on the number of days the Democratic presidential candidate has failed to appear on the program. Host Chris Wallace said Sunday that Obama promised him in March 2006 that he would appear, but the Illinois senator has since demurred. Since then, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama's rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, has been a guest at least twice since then, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the likely Republican nominee for president, has shown up at...

    Al-Qaida's terror attacks on March 11, 2004 (just prior to Spain's national elections), sought to establish the "Madrid Precedent," a strategic extension of what al-Qaida's planners in their "Letters to the Africa Corps" had called the examples of Mogadishu, Somalia, and Beirut, Lebanon. Stated crudely, Beirut (U.S. Marine barracks, 1983) and Mogadishu ("Blackhawk Down," 1993) told al-Qaida that if "we kill enough, they will withdraw." Islamists murdered 191 Spaniards and wounded 1,800 on 3-11. Unlike Beirut, the "Madrid Precedent" targeted civilians in Spanish territory -- but on al-Qaida's map of the global caliphate, Spain is "al Andalus," a Muslim domain...

Here's the full context: Placid of demeanor but pointed in his rhetoric, Jackson struck out repeatedly today against those who suggest his race has been an asset in the campaign. President Reagan suggested Tuesday that people don't ask Jackson tough questions because of his race. And former representative Geraldine A. Ferraro (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that because of his "radical" views, "if Jesse Jackson were not black, he wouldn't...

The scene was quite a contrast from the circus atmosphere they recalled in the same lobby during the early stages of two other recent high-profile trials — those of former Illinois Gov. George Ryan and newspaper magnate Conrad Black. In each case, about three times as many TV cameramen jockeyed for position with sound men,...

A quarter of Democrats (25%) who back Clinton for the nomination say they would favor McCain in a general election test against Obama.

Would a President Barack Obama or a President Hillary Clinton actually pull the U.S. out of the North American Free Trade Agreement?

    The easy way to remember what "tax reform" means to Obama is this: repeal the Bush tax cuts, tax the "wealthy" and tax corporations. The "wealthy" have lots of money, according to Obama. He says they have enough money to pay for universal healthcare. Obama says they even have enough money to pay for a tax bill for the middle class and the elderly, too. Gee, those wealthy people Obama knows are nice, huh? Some people might call this sort of income redistribution "class warfare" but Obama says that's distasteful. When Obama talks about "tax fairness" he means raising capital...
