What do we really know about Barack Obama

A Well-groomed and Polished Trojan Horse

Who is Barack Obama—really?  He appeared on the national scene, seemingly out of nowhere, and became the Democratic Party’s candidate for President.  He has a laughably thin political track record.  His major accomplishment while in office has been running for another office.  We know he’s an uncommonly slick snake-oil salesman, who’s adept at writing disingenuous, self-promoting books.  What else do we know?  The Presidential Election is fast approaching, and time’s running out.  So, who is this guy?


In regard to his higher education; we know when and where he went to school—Occidental College, Columbia, Harvard—but that’s about it.  Obama’s school records are kept under lock and key.  Is there something in these records that Obama wants kept hidden?

How about the elusive thesis Obama wrote while at Columbia?  His thesis would give the electorate some insight into his ideology during that formative period in his life.  Obama is silent on the subject and, golly-gee, Columbia says it can’t find any copies of the thesis – if it they ever existed.  Obama’s professor at the time claims that Obama spent a year writing this nonexistent thesis.  Curiouser and curiouser. 

By the way, if you would like to read Michelle Obama’s Master’s Thesis you will currently find that you must wait until November 5, 2008—the day after the Presidential Election – when Princeton University will allow the public access to it again.  One may be excused for wondering what opinions she expressed in her thesis that Princeton feels might damage her husband’s chances for election. 

What about Obama’s religious values?  What sort of faith guides his decisions, and acts as his moral compass? 

Let’s take a look at reverend “God damn America” Wright—(I use reverend with a lower case “r” because Wright does not deserve the honorific “Reverend.”

Anyone who has heard Wright’s inflammatory, venom-filled rants, knows that the “reverend” is about as spiritual as an anti-personnel mine.  The warped and twisted logic that spews forth from this bigoted and treasonous demagogue would be laughable, if it weren’t for the fact that his “flock” buys into his garbage. 

This is the reverend who claims that the U.S. government invented AIDS as a means of waging genocide against Afro-Americans.  This is the reverend who is on record and video saying, “Not, God bless America—God damn America!”

This is Obama’s spiritual mentor.  This is the reverend that married him and Michelle.  This is the reverend that baptized their two children.  This is the reverend that was Obama’s religious teacher for twenty years. 

When reverend Wright’s hate filled propaganda became public knowledge, Obama tried to downplay it.  He compared Wright to “an old uncle who says things I don’t always agree with.”  The public didn’t buy Obama’s ploy—so, for politically expedient reasons, Obama cut Wright loose, and disavowed him. 

After twenty years of close association, Obama “discovered” that reverend Wright was wrong.  At the best, Obama doesn’t appear to be a very astute judge of character, does he? 

What about Bill Ayers—unrepentant homegrown terrorist?  In the 1960s and 70s Ayers was a prominent member of a group of violent radicals called the Weathermen.  Ayers summed up his philosophy as: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home; kill your parents.” 

A notable quote from Ayers: “There’s something about a good bomb…”.  Something indeed.  Most people would consider “good bomb” an oxymoron – but not Ayers. 

Ayers is now a professor at the University of Illinois; he served with Obama on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago for three years, and hosted a dinner at his home to help launch Obama’s political career in 1995. 

Obama says that he hardly knows Ayers.  Listening to Obama, one would think that he and Ayers only have met briefly, while waiting in line at a grocery store—once, long ago and far away.  There’s more; if you like fairy-tales.

Why does Obama deny being associated with so many of his associates?  Why do Middle East terrorist groups support him?  What about Obama’s close ties with ACORN, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae?  What about his relationship with the racist Louis Farrakhan?  What about his associations with Rashid Khalidi , Rezco, and Nadhmi Auchi?  Why do we know so little about this man?  What is he hiding?  What is his real agenda? 

In an article he wrote about Obama, Ed Lasky pointed out the dangers of an unexamined candidate leading an uninformed electorate.  Time is running out people.  We need to know the truth about Obama before it is too late.

I don’t believe that Obama is merely an under-qualified and opportunistic politico.  If only it were that simple.  I’ve come to believe that Obama is a well-groomed and polished Trojan Horse, poised to enter the White House.  If Obama is elected President, it won’t be “God bless America,” it will be “God help America.”  Don’t say you weren’t warned.
