Linking Obama’s relationships to Ayers and Wright

Category: Obamaharmonicminer @ 11:13 pm

If you’ve been paying attention to the election coming up, you know that Obama’s alliances with Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers are matters of considerable concern, one being a racist, apparently America hating pastor, the other being an unrepentant terrorist, and both being close to Obama for many, many years. Now Powerline reports on new work by Stanly Kurtz in Connecting the Dots

But now Stanley Kurtz has demonstrated a more concrete connection, and one that implicates Obama directly, not just through “association.” Kurtz’s review of documents from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) — the education foundation Obama and Ayers jointly led for a time during the 1990s — has established that “Barack Obama knowingly and persistently funded an educational project that shared the extremist and anti-American philosophy of Jeremiah Wright.”

I hope you’ll read this entire report. It is clear that there is yet more evidence of Obama’s radical past, and likely radical future.

Boston Legal: Dances With Wolves

If the second link stops working, I will conclude someone doesn’t want this clip to be seen, and wonder why.

I don’t want to spoil the surprise for you, but check back here tomorrow for an update on the actual content of the clip, and some comments.

Two Americas: but is the divide one of ideology, not wealth?

Category: left,rightharmonicminer @ 8:49 am

Dennis Prager writes that there are Two Irreconcilable Americas .  Here’s a bit of it, but the whole thing is very much worth reading.

It is time to confront the unhappy fact about our country: There are now two Americas. Not a rich one and a poor one; economic status plays little role in this division.

There is a red one and a blue one.

For most of my life I have believed, in what I now regard as wishful thinking, that the right and left wings have essentially the same vision for America, that it’s only about ways to get there in which the two sides differ. Right and left share the same ends, I thought.

That is not the case. For the most part, right and left differ in their visions of America and that is why they differ on policies.

Right and the left do not want the same America.

He’s correct, with some qualifications I discuss below.  In this article, Mr. Prager makes the case that the Left is primarily focused on equality, thoroughgoing secularism, and internationalism/moral equivalence, while the Right is focused primarily on freedom, a more or less Judeo-Christian society with secular government that is not hostile to religious values, and American exceptionalism/patriotism.

I Know vs. I Believe II

Category: Obamaamuzikman @ 1:26 am

Can it truly be that someone of so little substance, and experience can be elected to the office of President of the United States?

Can it be we the people are so laissez faire about our future that we are persuaded to hand the Presidency to someone we know so little about?

Can we truly be so foolish as to elect a leader who has again and again been found among those who hate the very country he now aspires to lead?

Can it be we will place a man in the Oval Office who has no greater qualification than eloquent rhetoric?

What does this say about us?

I don’t know what you think of Howard Stern, and in this case it really doesn’t matter – but I do know you should listen to this audio clip and then ask yourself about what hope there is for us as a nation when so many will exercise their precious right to vote enshrouded in a cloak of ignorance.
