The heroic courage of Larry Grathwohl transcends Fox News

The most valuable information ever unearthed about Obama came not from the mainstream media but from heroic FBI-informant Larry Grathwohl.  The information Grathwohl let the world in on proved who Barack Obama truly is: the lifetime friend of unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, who also gave America’s most anti-American commander in chief his White House rise.

Thanks to Larry Grathwohl, Bill Ayers is the only friendship from which the slippery Obama can never squirm away.

Both Obama and Ayers are top flight lieutenants of the dedicated-to-Satan works of the late Saul Alinsky. They have long been,  and still are, fellow travelers and comrades in arms.

Were it not for Alinsky’s son, L.David Alinsky, who crowed in a Boston Globe letter to the editor Sept. 1, 2008:  “Barack Obama’s training in Chicago by the great community organizers is showing its effectiveness.  It is an amazingly powerful format, and the method of my late father always works to get the message out and get the supporters on board.  When executed meticulously and thoughtfully, it is a powerful strategy for initiating change and making it really happen.  Obama learned his lesson well”, Obama’s obeisance to Rules for Radicals may never have been so obvious. (Canada Free Press, September 2, 2008)

But it was the singular courage and determination of Larry Grathwohl who put the longtime friendship of Obama and Ayers on the map, something that even a Fox News talking head can’t put to rest.

Even in his youth, Grathwohl put his principles in action.

“Larry served with the 101st Airborne during the Vietnam War, and joined the Special Forces “Hatchet Force” teams. These 40 - 100 man units were sent on search and destroy missions in some of the most dangerous areas, to rescue and/or locate smaller Special Forces squads who regularly got into trouble with much larger North Vietnamese elements determined to wipe them out. (James Simpson, Examiner, July 13, 2014)

“Returning from the war, he learned about activities of the Weather Underground and determined on his own to find out more about them. He subsequently became an undercover informant, first for the Cincinnati police, then the FBI. He was the only person to successfully penetrate the communist group, and his testimony might have sent two of its leaders, domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, to jail for a very long time. However, Ayers and Dohrn managed to avoid prosecution on a technicality. As Ayers later said “Guilty as Hell, free as a bird. What a great country!

“In spite of the distance Ayers is trying to put between himself and Obama, some think he was the ghostwriter of Obama’s book “Dreams from My Father”.  He first came into the public spotlight when he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist group that was responsible for numerous bombings, including at the Capitol Building and the Pentagon.  The attacks, which also included numerous police stations, were in response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.” (Canada Free Press,  October 17, 2013)

It was Grathwohl who awakened America to the inherent dangers of Barack Obama in the run up to the 2008 presidential election when he described a meeting he attended where Bill Ayers and Weather Underground members talked openly about how they would have to murder an estimated 25 million people following the revolution they were then attempting to foment.

“Larry Grathwohl, the FBI informant who infiltrated the terrorist group and later wrote the 1976 book “Bringing Down America,” said Ayers, told him personally that fellow Weather Underground member Bernadine Dohrn, now his wife, set the bomb that killed San Francisco Park Police Sgt. Brian McDonnell i n 1970. (Perry Chiaramonte, Fox News, Oct. 16, 2013).

“Bill Ayers told me in Buffalo that we weren’t doing enough bombings and strategic sabotages,” Grathwohl told  “He complained that it was a sad situation when (Dohrn) had to plan and place the bomb at the San Francisco Park Police station.”

Ayers claims to have been “amazed” when he saw himself described on television as allegedly having close ties to Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election and says he felt that he was “cast as some kind of public enemy”.

Grathwohl spent a lifetime traveling on his own time and money to seminars where Ayers and Dohrn were scheduled to speak, patiently waiting his turn to challenge them about their participation in terrorism and murder.  Ayers and Dohrn often slipped out the back door before Grathwohl could confront them, but that never stopped him from turning up at the next seminar. (PJ Media).

As we approach the first anniversary of Grathwohl’s death on July 18, there is growing concern that Obama will release Ayers’ imprisoned Weather Underground associates, with so many having already been set free.

“Left unsaid on ‘The Kelly File’ show was the critical fact that many of Ayers’ comrades are still in jail or prison, waiting for Democratic politicians such as President Obama and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to grant pardons or clemency. Some have already been released, with no significant press attention devoted to the pattern that is developing. (Cliff Kincaid, AIM, July 14, 2014))

Rest in peace, Larry Grathwohl, your remarkable courage in outing Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, guarantees that they never will.
