    As activists are planning to lead a Global March to Jerusalem next Friday, Israel has warned neighboring countries that it would forcefully respond to attempted breaches of its borders. The Global March to Jerusalem initiative aims at getting over one million Arabs and their supporters to attempt to infiltrate Israel’s borders on March 30th. A spokesman for the march said last week the initiative “demand[s] freedom for Palestine and its capital Jerusalem.” The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC) has presented information that Iran is behind the initiative and openly supports it. The march has also been endorsed...

    SFGate: Politics Blog ^ | 6/11/9 | Carla Marinucci, Chronicle Political Writer
    Just days after he delivered a fiery and well-received sermon in San Francisco, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has one prominent defender here following his latest controversy -- an interview in which he claims "the Jewish vote" is controlling President Barack Obama. Wright's longtime friend, the Rev. Amos Brown -- a former San Francisco supervisor and pastor of the landmark Third Baptist Church here -- is coming to the defense of the controversial Chicago-based pastor on the heels of the firestorm, saying that Wright has been misunderstood and unfairly been targeted by conservative media. Wright made headlines following a recent sit-down...

    The Rev. Amos Brown of the Third Baptist Church in San Francisco celebrates his 33rd year there with a special service at 3 p.m. June 7. The principal speaker is the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, formerly of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, who was Barack Obama's minister before racially charged remarks during the campaign caused the candidate to break with his church. Brown and Wright attended United Theological Seminary together in Dayton, Ohio, and were both Samuel DeWitt Proctor Fellows, in a program devoted to social justice and a holistic style of leadership and church services. "I think it's...

    Wright's role among topics of 'Phenomenon' It was at the end of May last year, about one week before Barack Obama had sealed the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, that Daphene McFerren sent a letter to Rev. Jeremiah Wright. McFerren, the director of the University of Memphis' Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change, was already planning a conference for April of 2009 that would examine the impact of Obama's historic candidacy. She explained her ambitions to Wright and invited him to come and speak. Less than a week later, Wright accepted, agreeing to the speaking fee of $4,000 that McFerren...
  • The Wright Stuff: Latest Obama Ad from Floyd Brown

    On March 27, 2004, Barack Obama told a reporter that there were two ministers in his life that he looked to for guidance. One was Jeremiah Wright, his pastor since 1987. The other was Father Michael Pfleger. Wright cried out from the pulpit, "Not God bless America, God damn America", while Pfleger screamed, "America is the greatest sin against God." This ad raises the ante in this presidential race by driving the political dialog back to the subject that Barack Obama hates – the truth about his past.

    firebrand pastor Jeremiah Wright has helped destroy a Dallas church worker's marriage - and her job, The Post has learned. Elizabeth Payne, 37, said she had a steamy sexual affair with the controversial, racially divisive man of the cloth while she was an executive assistant at a church headed by a popular Wright protégé. Payne's husband dumped her, and she was canned from the plum job at Friendship-West Baptist Church, she told The Post. "I was involved with Rev. Wright, and that's why I lost my job and why my husband divorced me," Payne said.

    Jeremiah Wright, the firebrand pastor and former intimate of Barack Obama - the pair fell out when footage of Wright emerged damning America - is in the news again. On the front page of today's New York Post, he is accused of having an affair with one Elizabeth Payne, (pictured), a 37-year-old church worker, who has told this was the reason for the eventual breakdown of her marriage. Payne claims she and Wright, who christened Obama's children and presided over his marriage to Michelle, began their relationship while he was an executive assistant at a Dallas church headed by one...

    Marilyn Wright's "Fire Bill and Hillary," posted at on January 21 2008 and online as of September 8, 2008, expresses a wish for Bill and Hillary Clinton to be "lynched" and "shot." It also wishes that Bill Clinton would die from a heart attack, and it refers to him as "white trash." This hate speech is "Paid for by Obama for America."...Here is what Marilyn Wright has to say about the Clintons (Google cache in case it "disappears" now that it is becoming an Internet-wide scandal).

    By becoming the first African American set to win the nomination of a major political party, Barack Obama showed that we have come a long way in overcoming our long history of racism. But winning the presidency is a different matter. The racial divide seen in the primaries has many Democrats (I include myself) worried that the issue of race will loom even larger in the general election. Too many people – how many is hard to estimate since some voters lie to pollsters – still harbor racial resentments against blacks. For them, Obama is first and foremost a black...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has come out in defense of Barack Obama over his ties to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, saying the controversial pastor won’t affect voters’ decisions in November. “Look, I am just glad [Obama] went to church,” Pelosi told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night. Pelosi, a Catholic, said she doesn’t believe that politicians “should be held accountable for everything that their pastors say in their church. “I have disagreements with some of … my own pastors and churches that I go to and if I had to walk out every time I had an area...

    SAN DIEGO – Introducing Michelle Obama, Angry Black Woman. What an absurd caricature this is turning out to be. Not to mention a confusing one. Growing up on Chicago's South Side, Michelle Obama was probably accused of "acting white" because she excelled academically and went off to the Ivy League. Now – abracadabra – she's a Black Panther. There was even a malicious rumor that she had given a speech in her church in which she had used the word "whitey." Never happened. Shame on those who spread the lie, and shame on those who rushed to swallow it. Still,...

    Well, it looks like the Catholic Church in Chicago has lost whatever balls it found when it temporarily suspended Pfoaming-at-the-mouth preacher of hate Michael Pfleger for his racially poisoned sermon a few weeks ago. Because he’s baaaack. Again. The Chicago Trib reports that Obama’s longtime friend and earmark recipient will return to St. Sabina on June 16 after being placed on leave to “reflect” on his politicking from the pulpit. Question: Which Pfleger will come back and reassume his leadership position in the Catholic Church? The Hillary-mimicking, Vanilla Ice-prancing, Jeremiah Wright-impersonating reverend who has attracted a cult of supporters over...

    The Rev. Jeffrey Bryan has posted campaign signs for "Obama in '08" and displayed snapshots of the presumed Democratic presidential nominee visiting his Newark, N.J., church. At times he wears a T-shirt emblazoned with Barack Obama's face. That's as far as Bryan will go — there will be no sermons peppered with "Vote Obama!" "It's a historical time for black people. We cannot ignore what's going on," Bryan said. Yet, he added, "you can't tell people who to vote for." The pulpit plays a powerful role in shaping political views in the black community. During the civil rights era, for...

    Reverend Jeremiah Wright is back in the news, denouncing the Founders and Fox News. (Fox is in good company, I guess.) In honor of Wright's retirement, Barack Obama should consider buying him a ticket to some place far away. Wright's return comes on the heels of Obama's self-revelation in San Francisco. This should remind us that Obama's selection of Wright as his spiritual mentor was also an act of self-revelation. Obama grew up in a secular family, and converted to Christianity as an adult, specifically because he was drawn to Reverend Wright and the theology that Wright preached. So it...

    Rasmussen’s latest polling shows John McCain maintaining voter trust on the key issues of the upcoming presidential campaign despite getting much less earned-media coverage than his likely opponent, Barack Obama. On economics, national security, and especially on Iraq, McCain has kept ahead of Obama: When it comes to the economy, 47% of voters trust John McCain more than Barack Obama. Obama is trusted more by 41%. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey also found that, when it comes to the War in Iraq, McCain is trusted more by 49% of voters. Obama is preferred by 37%. McCain has an even...

Desmond Tutu believes that Wright says the things that all black Americans want to say... Really?

"You're a country that has I think some of the most generous people I've ever come across in the world." But he chided Americans for getting "very, very upset" with the pastor of Sen.

    Even before Senator Barack Obama unequivocally denounced Reverend Jeremiah Wright as the loon he is, I was willing to take the senator's word for the fact that his erstwhile pastor's rantings about America, the Middle East, the September 11 attacks, Louis Farrakhan, AIDS and white people do not reflect Obama's own feelings. What pained me then, though, and still does, is the tragic subtext of Pastorgate - that the sort of rank idiocy that was spewed from the pulpit at Chicago's Trinity Church may not be unusual in churches that cater to African Americans. Senator Obama's statement, back when he...

Rev. Wright is a renowned religious scholar, nurturing pastor and outstanding preacher. Our friend and fellow minister has been vilified in the national media for practicing the great commission to go ye preach and baptize in my name. We repudiate the irresponsible and shameful behavior of the national media for replaying and sensationalizing Rev. Wright’s words out of context simply...
