Comment: Tell your friends, and show them the proof. Adolf Hitler was well-known to have used hypnosis on crowds to gain power in Germany. (Just Google it if you doubt it.) So why cant this happen in America? It is happening. Now, this document, An Examination of Obama's Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches is really spreading. Many people, including young people, are starting to wake up. Young people have come up with a saying, "Don't drink the kool-aid Obama is pushing on you." Obama has no accomplishments, we don't know him, he wrote a memoir, he has racist connections, he is using hypnosis, and he thinks he's the Messiah and that he should be in control of the world. We've seen this story before in Germany in the 1930's, haven't we? We know what happened there. Obama's use of hypnosis in speeches is why: -nothing sticks to him -the huge crowds -the huge money contributions -the mesmerized effect, especially in young people, who, because of their imaginations are more susceptible to hypnosis (read the document) -the exorbitant election fraud, rule-breaking and bias in the media -he gets away with changing every position -people are calling him the "greatest leader of a generation" with no accomplishments You have to read this document to understand how his hypnosis works. Logically and rationally, why not get to know this guy a little more before handing the world over to him? Why not wait? An Examination of Obama's use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches can be found at http://www.scribd.com/doc/7470439/Obamas-Use-of-Hidden-Hypnosis-Techniques-in-His-Speeches The media must feel compelled to cover this information and decide to let informed people decide. PS - "Dont drink Obama's Kool-Aid"

Amber waves of grain. Children waving flags. Happy veterans. Glowing young couples. These are just some of the images seen on the Obama Worship Hour (otherwise known as a half hour paid political advertisement) last evening, broadcast on five channels: NBC, MSNBC, CBS, Fox and Univision. CNN declined the generous offer; ABC was unable to reschedule its Wednesday lineup in time. FOX News was not even invited to join the other supplicants at the altar.
Slickly produced, the 30-minute spot, with its soft music, emotive images and tearjerker stories of hardworking Americans going through difficult times (hey, why wasn’t I auditioned for this?), reminds one more of a movie on the Lifetime, Oxygen or Hallmark channels than a political ad. The kind of movie that makes you squirm uncomfortably in your seat in embarrassment, wondering when the commercial will come so you can run to the kitchen for a bracing jolt of caffeinated soda (or something stronger). But then you remember: the whole thing is a commercial!
(Cue shower music from Psycho…)
Those emotive images I mentioned? One of them includes Obama speaking to a group of retirees whose pensions were cut. He’s standing in the middle of a gazebo, the sun shining on his hair in a way that’s reminiscent of a – wait for it – halo. Yes, The One has indeed come back to lead the faithful to nirvana.
After two years on the stump and over a quarter of a million dollars spent, Obama has yet to close the deal with the American people. Was he able to convince them last night? That depends on how much of a tolerance the American people have for schmooze and snooze – which is pretty much what the Obama Worship Hour was from start to finish.
After the first profile of a struggling family, Obama blamed the recent market fallout on “eight years of failed policy” and said our economy is in the worst shape since the Great Depression. He’s been saying this now for a number of weeks, hoping you won’t realize that really, we’re in the worst shape since the Carter administration. (Let’s play “Guess That Party!”)
Among his promises were those famous tax cuts for everyone making less than $200,000 a year. Of course, earlier this year the threshold was $300,000 and as recently as the last debate it was $250,000. And if you ask Joe Biden, the number is $150,000. But hey, who’s counting? Especially when the tax cut he’s promising for 95% of Americans actually amounts to a freebie from the government, since approximately one third of tax filers end up owing no income tax after taking their deductions and credits allowed by the IRS. Who gets to pay for this largesse? Higher-income bracket people – you know, rich people.
In other words, spreading the wealth. Oops.
He also promised loans for small businesses to help pay their workers “just like after 9/11.” I thought politicizing 9/11 was taboo. Oh right, that’s only Republicans. Gotcha. But wouldn’t those loans be unnecessary if he said, “Let’s NOT raise taxes” on anyone? Sorry, my brain sometimes goes all logical on me. I promise it won’t happen again.
Basically, Obama wants to “restore fairness to the American economy and fulfill our commitments to the American people.” The word “fairness” is more code for socialism: it’s not fair that some people are able to earn more, so we have to “level the playing field” by taking from some and giving it to others. And about those commitments: our Founders felt that the government’s biggest commitment was to stay out of our way. However, since Obama feels the Constitution “reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day,” it’s not surprising that he thinks that it’s his job to change government’s role in a way that has not been seen since Johnson’s (not so) Great Society. (Rush Limbaugh touched on this during his program yesterday in a “prebuttal” to Obama’s infomercial.)
Watching this, I must admit, I’m appalled at the way Obama has a tendency to drop his Gs in order to sound more folksy. According to Peggy Noonan, such talk is a “new vulgarization in American politics.” Oh wait, that note was for Sarah Palin. Move along, nothing to see here…
Ah, here we come to energy policy. Obama wants to invest $15 billion in renewable energy such as wind, solar and biofuels, claiming that 5 million jobs “that can never be outsourced” will be created. But is it the government’s job to invest money in what has, until now, been the domain of the private sector and free market? He’s also promising to help our automakers “retool” so they can build fuel-efficient cars. “Retool” here is another word for government handout to private corporations. Haven’t Americans had enough of bailouts? Maybe if the automakers would give the unions the boot they’d stand more of a chance at making a buck.
Besides, we’ve seen how the government handles investments through the muck-up of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Do we really want them handling more of our financial affairs?
Obama talks about going through the federal budget line by line and cutting programs that don’t work and making those that do work more efficient. But as in the debates, he declines to say which ones he’d cut – except, of course, his sop to the far Left: “chang[ing] our policy in Iraq.” Once again, he speaks of ending the war. The word “win” doesn’t seem to be in his vocabulary. (If I were him, I might want a refund on the cost of that expensive Ivy League education.)
Obama likens the money we spend in Iraq to money that could be spent on schools and healthcare, yet it’s not the government’s job to be spending money in those areas. Hey, if throwing money at schools is the answer, why are Washington D.C.’s public schools near the bottom of the heap instead of at the top?
The most important way our government can “secure the blessings of liberty” is by “provid[ing] for the common defense,” as laid out in the preamble to the Constitution. The argument of whether we should have gone into Iraq is now moot. We’re there, and the surge worked. The Iraqis are getting closer and closer to being able to fend for themselves. Leaving now would leave a vacuum that Iran is all more than willing to fill and, along with an emboldened al Qaeda, would use the strategically placed Iraq to use as a launching ground for their nefarious plans to destroy Israel and spread radical Islam throughout the world.
Do we have a “moral obligation” to provide free college education to everyone? Obama seems to think so. Those who would rather go into a trade, though, may be out of luck. Sorry, all you future plumbers, electricians and beauticians out there.
The right to healthcare comes up, right on cue. To all of you who believe healthcare is a right: Imagine that tomorrow every healthcare professional – doctors, nurses, phlebotomists, dentists, physical therapists, and so on – were to suddenly quit. Each and every one of them. There goes your “right,” right down the toilet. And again, do we really want the architects of the Fannie and Freddie implosion to be in charge of our healthcare too?
Another little tidbit that cracked me up was seeing Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, praising Obama’s economic plan. Sorry, but don’t count me as one of those being impressed by the opinion of a guy whose company bowed to pressure by China and censors itself in that country so as not to lose that Communist country’s business.
One of the biggest complaints that Obama’s critics have is that we don’t know who he is. A little-known senator is suddenly in position to have the most influential and powerful job on the planet. But who is he? What’s he like? Who were the people who motivated him in his life? If you were looking for reassurance on those murky characters like Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, Rev. Wright and Rashid Khalidi, you didn’t get it last night. Instead, we were treated to a rehash about how the absence of his father shaped him, how his mother had to wake him at 4:30 in the morning so she could go to work, and how difficult her death was for him. And Michelle tells us what a great dad he is. (Speaking of Michelle, I’m still waiting for the New York Times to do as flattering a profile on her as they did on Cindy McCain.)
Finally, Obama promises to be faithful to the Constitution – an amusing concept, considering he feels it represents a “fundamental flaw” in our country. He also promises to bolster the military. Yet past declarations belie those promises, such as cutting tens of billions in wasteful military spending, including “unproven missile systems,” and a “goal of a world without nuclear weapons.” Good luck with that.
If you’ve been paying any attention to the campaign, you learned nothing new during the Obama Worship Hour, including the fact that as long as he’s on script, Obama does very well – it’s when he doesn’t have a teleprompter in front of him or an editor in charge of cutting out unflattering video footage that little things like “spreading the wealth” slip out.
And considering all of the money that must have gone into the making and marketing of this video, it could have used a little more pizzazz. The reactions I got from my friends online? Ho-hum.
Putting aside the smarmy qualities of this infomercial aside, the fact that he could afford to make and air it (on five networks during prime time) at all should tell us what we need to know about Obama: he promised to accept public financing for the general election and broke that promise when he realized he could raise a lot more on his own. Or, if you’d like, he outright lied when he made the promise. If CNN’s Campbell Brown and Democrat Bob Kerrey can both note the contradiction, I like to think the rest of America is savvy enough to figure it out too.
Is this an aberration or a pattern?
On November 4th, Americans will head to the polls to elect a leader, not a religious figure immortalized on celluloid for consumption by the masses. Look beyond the hype, and vote accordingly.
Okay, time to wake up and make your way to coffee hour. Don’t forget to leave a little donation in the collection plate on your way out.

Agreement with Muslims pledged to protect terrorists, throttle Christians, impose Shariah
By Jerome R. Corsi
Sen. Barack Obama with Raila Odinga
NEW YORK – A controversial Kenyan leader for whom Sen. Barack Obama not only campaigned, but raised almost $1 million during the run-up to that nation’s 2007 presidential election, had concluded a written agreement with Muslim leaders stipulating that, if they delivered him the Muslim vote, he would in turn, once elected, convert Kenya into an Islamic state governed by Shariah law, protect terrorists from prosecution, and effectively ban Christianity.
WND documented earlier that Obama supported and campaigned for Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga during a 2006 senatorial “fact-finding” trip to Kenya, and subsequently reported on documents revealing Obama’s part in raising almost $1 million for Odinga.
Accord to a BBC report, Odinga says he is Obama’s cousin, specifically that the presidential candidate’s father was Odinga’s maternal uncle. Obama’s father, a Kenyan, married his American mother while both were attending the university of Hawaii.
Odinga took over the office of prime minister in Kenya after his campaign called for protests of an election he lost by more than 200,000 votes to incumbent Mwai Kibaki. The resulting violence by marauding Muslim mobs left 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes and 800 Christian churches damaged or destroyed. No Islamic mosques were damaged, however.
Among the worst attacks occurred when several dozen women and children sought refuge in a Christian church which mobs burned down on top of them.
WND has reported that the violence appears to have been part of Odinga’s campaign strategy. Former members of Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement party, or ODM, claim Obama did not call on Odinga to drop his voter-fraud campaign or withdraw from his pursuit of the presidency even after he lost and the violence erupted.
WND has confirmed that at one point, then-United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice actually pressured Kenyan Vice President Kolonzo to step down from his position to bring the Odinga-connected Luo-mob protest violence to an end by appointing Odinga vice president so he could assume the nation’s second highest political office.
When Kolonzo refused to step down, Annan and Rice proposed the Odinga-inspired plan of appointing him as prime minister, effectively allowing Odinga to share the head-of-state position with Kibaki, a solution that was adopted.
Now WND has obtained a copy of Odinga’s agreement with Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, the chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, that outlined plans, among other things, for wide-ranging attacks on Christians.
In the August 2007 document, Odinga promised that within six months of becoming president he would “rewrite the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared religions.”
While in Kenya earlier this month, WND interviewed several Christians who had been officials in Odinga’s ODM, but who had left the party and abandoned Odinga after learning of his agreement with Muslims. Their names cannot be disclosed here as they fear for their lives.
Those sources, considered highly credible, told WND there are several versions of the agreement that have been floated around on the Internet, but that the document reproduced by WND is authentic. In fact, they went through the document line by line with WND to confirm its legitimacy.
A news video (below) of a press conference held during the Kenyan election campaign and broadcast in Kenya by Nairobi-based NTV shows Sheik Abdullah Abdi, chairman of National Muslim Leaders Forum, discussing the Memorandum of Understanding.
Although Odinga later produced a “short version” that sanitized the agreement, highly credible sources close to Odinga confirmed for WND that the long version reproduced by WND is authentic, and that the short version was produced just to defuse the controversy.
Indeed, one of the main reasons WND went to Kenya was to meet ex-ODM officials who would validate the original Memorandum of Understanding as authentic.
In the document signed by Odinga and the chairman of the National Muslims Leaders Forum, the Muslims promised to “enable and assist ODM and The Candidate win the National Elections and the Presidency of the Republic of Kenya.”
The Muslims agreed to “issue a joint statement declaring that all Muslims should support and vote for Raila Amollo Odinga and ODM” and “engage in active campaigns for Raila Amollo Odinga and ODM through the Republic and impress upon Muslims, publicly and emphatically, the requirement to vote for ODM and Raila Amollo Odinga.”
In return, Odinga agreed to give “the Council of Islamic leaders … an oversight role to monitor activities of ALL (emphasis in original) other religions and any applications for religious activities and institutions will require their approval. They shall have the right to deny approval to cults and other evil practices.”
The plan apparently was to turn Kenya, which has long been a Christian-majority nation, into an Islamic state.
In addition to promising to re-write the Kenyan constitution and enshrine Islamic Shariah law therein, Odinga promised to immediately “dismiss the Commissioner of Police who has allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists to oppress the Kenya Muslim community.”
Further, Muslims suspected of terrorism, even international terrorism, were to be provided new protections, with Odinga’s promise to:
“Disband the imperialist Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) that was set up for the sole purpose of terrorizing, harassing, intimidating and deporting innocent Kenyan Muslims to Guantanamo Bay.”
Further, Odinga agreed, “No Muslim residing in Kenya whether a citizen, visitor or relative of any of the above shall be subjected to any process involving the laws of a foreign country and in particular any Muslim arrested for or suspected of Terrorism or any other International crime shall only be tried within the boarders (sic) of Kenya …”
The power and influence of Islam was to be further extended with Odinga’s promise to: “within 1 year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenya divisional headquarters,” and to “popularize Islam, the only true religion … by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa class.”
Strict Islamic Shariah law was to be enforced with immediate crackdowns on alcohol, pork and other “haram” products and practices, including a ban “on women’s public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith in the Muslim regions of the Coastal and Northeastern regions.”
And ominously, Christianity was to be subjected to a formal crackdown with Odinga’s promise to “impose a total ban on open-air gospel crusades by worshippers of the cross in the Coastal and North Eastern regions” and his plan to “outlaw gospel programs (preaching, purported faith healing, etc.) on KBC, the National Broadcaster.”

The book entitled Obama: Why Black America Should Have Doubts examines the character and intentions of the first African-American ever nominated for presidency from a major political party. The author, William Owens, Jr., argues that voting Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for president can prove disastrous, if not a curse to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and to the progress of Black Americans.
In his book, Owens raises critical questions as to why Black America should have serious doubts about Senator Obama becoming president of the United States, as his religious beliefs and his stance on public policy conflict with Judeo-Christian values and go against everything that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and other Civil Rights leaders ever believed.
Thus, Owens warns Black America not to vote for Senator Obama, based on his charisma, his handsome features, his eloquent speeches and his black skin, but rather, judge him by the content of his character, a sentiment spoken by the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement.
Owens claims, as an African-American, he has developed doubts about Senator Obama becoming president based on what he has seen, read and heard. “I have come to view him as potentially dangerous-for our country and in particular for Black Americans,” Owens said. “We are often afraid to look deeper-beyond the obvious-because then we would have to be responsible for our choices and refute the belief that a person who looks like us will automatically take care of us.”
Over time, Owens has determined that Senator Obama has not been completely truthful about his place of origin, his religious beliefs or his heritage. “Obama’s life story is vastly different from the one he portrays,” Owens argued. “Barack Obama’s birth certificate, [of] which he fails to provide the original to the public, has raised questions regarding his own American citizenship and the ability to become President under the Constitution.”
“Barack Obama does not and cannot relate to our past as Black Americans because in reality he is not a Black American,” explained Owens, as he reiterated a passage from the book titled, Obama: The Man Behind the Mask, by author Andy Martin. “Obama is a Muslim who has concealed his religion. Obama has a great opportunity to be forthright. Instead, he has treated his Muslim heritage as a dark secret.”
Further, Owens contends, “Obama Senior was part of one of the most corrupt and violent organizations in Africa: the Kenyatta regime.” “I believe Obama’s secret shame at his family history of rape, murder and arson is what actualizes him.”
In the end, Owens claimed, “it is the Black mindset that presses upon us to say, give the brother a chance.” “On one level, I confess I understand this tendency. Yet, we, as Black Americans must move beyond this.”
“The excitement of having a man on the presidential ballot whose skin is browner than any in recent American history is something to consider,” said Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Many Black Americans are convinced that justice for those of us once known as Negroes in America will be done by electing a brown-skinned, African-European as President. Obviously, America is hungry for change, but America is looking in the wrong place,” she said. “Barack cannot deliver America. The Senator’s politics are neither a blessing nor praiseworthy.”
Alveda King explained that Senator Obama’s approach to solving social ills is dead wrong and can prove counterproductive to the African-American progress. “Senator Obama’s answer to the ills of society, of higher government spending, weaker national defense, continued tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, and support of gay marriage are diametrically opposed to everything African-Americans truly believe and an anathema to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”
Alveda King argued, “every time Barack Obama supports abortion on demand, gay civil unions and higher government spending, he is sacrificing the lives of our children and releasing injustice into the heads and hearts of America.” In addition, she claimed, “There is no justice in the onslaught of oppressive anti-life measures, such as the racist practice of abortion on demand; anti-procreation legislation; unbalanced judicial tyranny leading to excess incarceration of our young; anti-choice in the education of our youth; and a negative graphic media leading to poverty of mind and spirit.”
Real change, Alveda argued, means ending the war on American streets, putting an end to the war that wrestles against the minds of our children, ending racism and put an end to the attack against traditional-marriage families.
Concluding, Alveda King says, “For those who suggest that Barack Obama advances the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I say look again. His politics are anathema to the dream!”

‘BARACK HAS CAPTURED THE YOUTH’, ‘WILL BRING ABOUT UNIVERSAL CHANGE’
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, another powerful Chicago-based political figure associated with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and other long-time associates of Democratic Party presidential candidate Barack Obama, is leaving no doubt about what he thinks of the leader in the campaign for the White House.
He says when Obama talks “the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
Addressing a large crowd behind a podium Feb. 24 with a Nation of Islam Saviour’s Day 2008 sign, Farrakhan proclaims,
“You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
“Brothers and sisters,” Farrakhan said, “Barack Obama to me, is a herald of the Messiah. Barack Obama is like the trumpet that alerts you something new, something better is on the way.”
Farrakhan points out that the man Nation of Islam followers refer to as “the Savior,” Fard Muhammad, had a black father and a white mother, just as Obama did.
“A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,” he said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.
“Would God allow Barack to be president of a country that has been so racist, so evil in its treatment of Hispanics, native Americans, blacks?” he asked. “Would God do something like that? Yeah. Of course he would. That’s to show you that the stone that the builders rejected has become the headstone of the corner. This is a sign to you. It’s the time of our rise. It’s the time that we should take our place. The future is all about you.”

Says Arab world campaign contributions ‘may enable him to win U.S. presidency’
By Aaron Klein
JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama is a Muslim of Kenyan origins who studied in Islamic schools and whose campaign may have been financed by people in the Islamic and African worlds, Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi said during a recent televised national rally.
“There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama,” said Gadhafi in little-noticed remarks he made at a rally marking the anniversary of the 1986 U.S. air raid on his country.
The remarks, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, MEMRI, were aired on Al Jazeera in June.
“All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man,” continued Gadhafi. “They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency.
“We are hoping that this black man will take pride in his African and Islamic identity, and in his faith, and that [he will know] that he has rights in America, and that he will change America from evil to good, and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other peoples, especially the Arabs,” Gadhafi said.
Gadhafi went on to lament statements Obama made at a June 4 address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in which the presidential candidate stated if he is elected president, “Jerusalem would remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.”
But it seems Gadhafi was not aware that the next day, during a CNN appearance, Obama explained he meant Jerusalem shouldn’t be physically divided with a partition and was not referring to the city remaining in exclusively Jewish hands.
Stated Gadhafi: “But we were taken by surprise when our African Kenyan brother [Obama], who is an American national, made statements (about Jerusalem) that shocked all his supporters in the Arab world, in Africa, and in the Islamic world.
“We hope that this is merely an elections ‘clearance sale,’ as they say in Egypt – in other words, merely an elections lie. As you know, this is the farce of elections – a person lies and lies to people, just so that they will vote for him, and afterwards, when they say to him, ‘You promised this and that,’ he says: ‘No, this was just elections propaganda.’ This is the farce of democracy for you. He says: ‘This was propaganda, and you thought I was being serious. I was fooling you to get your votes.’
“Allah willing, it will turn out that this was merely elections propaganda. Obama said he would turn Jerusalem into the eternal capital of the Israelis. This indicates that our brother Obama is ignorant of international politics, and is not familiar with the Middle East conflict,” Gadhafi said.
Gadhafi went on to express his hope if elected Obama will implement a “one state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, meaning Israel would be flooded with millions of Palestinian Arabs who would terminate the country’s Jewish nationality.
He said he was worried Obama may have a “black inferiority complex” whereby he may enact “white men” policies to prove he is no different from “white” America.
“The thing we fear most is that the black man suffers from an inferiority complex. This is dangerous. If our brother Obama feels that because he is black he doesn’t have the right to rule America, this would be a disaster, because such a feeling would make him act whiter than the white, and go to an extreme in his persecution and degradation of the blacks.
“We say to him: Brother, the whites and blacks in America are equal. They are all immigrants. America belongs neither to the whites nor to the blacks. America belongs to its original inhabitants, the Indians. Both the whites and the blacks immigrated to America, and so they are equal, and Obama has the right to hold his head high, and say: ‘I am a partner in America. This is my land as much as it is yours. If it is not my land, it is not yours either. It is the land of the Indians. You are immigrants, and so are we.’”
Obama was ‘quite religious in Islam’
Obama repeatedly has denied he is a Muslim. His campaign site states: “Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian.”
But as WND has reported, public records in Indonesia listed Obama as a Muslim during his early years, and a number of childhood friends claimed to the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim.
Obama’s campaign several times has wavered in response to reporters queries regarding the senator’s childhood faith.
Commenting on a recent Los Angeles Times report quoting a childhood friend stating Obama prayed in a mosque “something the presidential candidate said he never did,” Obama’s campaign released a statement explaining the senator “has never been a practicing Muslim.”
Widely distributed reports have noted that in January 1968, Obama was registered as a Muslim at Jakarta’s Roman Catholic Franciscus Assisi Primary School under the name Barry Soetoro. He was listed as an Indonesian citizen whose stepfather, listed on school documents as “L Soetoro Ma,” worked for the topography department of the Indonesian Army.
Catholic schools in Indonesia routinely accept non-Catholic students but exempt them from studying religion. Obama’s school documents, though, wrongly list him as being Indonesian.
After attending the Assisi Primary School, Obama was enrolled “also as a Muslim, according to documents” in the Besuki Primary School, a public school in Jakarta.
Laotze blog, run by an American expatriate in Southeast Asia who visited the Besuki school, noted: “All Indonesian students are required to study religion at school, and a young ‘Barry Soetoro,’ being a Muslim, would have been required to study Islam daily in school. He would have been taught to read and write Arabic, to recite his prayers properly, to read and recite from the Quran and to study the laws of Islam.”
Indeed, in Obama’s autobiography, “Dreams From My Father,” he acknowledged studying the Quran and describes the public school as “a Muslim school.”
Investigation hits headlines as author detained
Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama’s participation in Kenya’s political battles grabbed headlines when author and WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi was detained by soldiers and prevented from reporting his findings to media at a news conference in Nairobi.
Now “The Obama Nation,” the book that contains a large part of Corsi’s investigation into Obama’s work with opposition leader Raila Odinga in Kenya, has skyrocketed up the Top 10 list of best-sellers at Shop.WND.com.
The New York Times No. 1 best-seller outlines Obama’s extensive connections with Islam and radical politics, his continuing links inside Kenya and what may have been a political strategy discussion about Odinga’s campaign that resulted in post-election violence against that nation’s Christian community.
Corsi, who also co-wrote the No. 1 New York Times bestselling “Unfit for Command” and is a senior staff reporter for WND, writes about the “extreme leftism” that an Obama presidency would feature.
By tracing Obama’s career and influences from his early years in Hawaii and Indonesia, the beginnings of his political career in Chicago, his voting record in the Illinois Legislature, his religious training, his religious conversion through his recent involvement in Kenyan politics, his political advisers and fund-raising associates and his meteoric campaign for president, Corsi shows that an Obama presidency would, in his words, be “a repeat of the failed extremist politics that have characterized and plagued Democratic Party politics since the late 1960s.”
Corsi, who has fallen ill following his detention in Kenya, was confronted by armed soldiers and immigration authorities just as he was planning a news conference in Kenya to release more results from his investigation of Obama and Odinga.
The situation developed last Tuesday as Corsi was to discuss Obama’s ties to Kenya as well as Odinga, who has claimed he is Obama’s first cousin. It was a series of “protests” following Odinga’s 2007 election defeat in that nation’s presidential election that produced enough violence to damage or destroy hundreds of Christian churches and kill an estimated 1,000 people.
Corsi was taken under guard to an immigration office and held without food for most of the day until his scheduled flight out of Nairobi was being prepared, and he then was taken to the airport.
A Kenyan resident later told Corsi bribes totaling thousands of dollars were paid to facilitate his departure, at which point Kenyan authorities made sure he understood he was not welcome.
“Don’t ever come back. See you in hell,” Corsi reported an unidentified official told him as the author left.
In second place this week is the strong statement made by the NObama 08 Magnetic Bumper Sticker.
The bumper sticker has been at either of the top two positions in the list for most of the last several months.
It reflects an opinion not just about a political candidate but all of the issues that come with a candidate, such as abortion. GOP candidate Sen. John McCain has a long record of supporting pro-life positions, and Obama has advocated for abortion even beyond what the National Abortion Rights Action League has sought.
As WND reported, the issue was in the news recently when an Obama campaign television commercial not only attacked McCain but also took aim at an unusual target: a 31-year-old woman who was born alive after her mother’s botched abortion.
Obama’s commercial calls McCain’s ads “the sleaziest ever, truly vile.” When the screen shows clips of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and the ad she made asking Obama to reverse his stance on born alive infant protection legislation, the Obama ad calls Jessen’s appeal “a despicable lie.”

Created Crisis to Throw the Election
Last week, we watched President Bush, US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, (who is a former Goldman Sachs chief executive, Wall St. insider and card carrying member of the Democratic Party), House Speaker Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reed legislate a $700 billion taxpayer funded bailout bill for mismanaged Wall St. financial institutions. There were no questions asked. No congressional hearings. We still have no idea who is on the receiving end of our money.
At the time, Congress and the American people were told by Bush and Paulson that if the bailout bill didn’t pass within 48 hours, the US economy would suffer another Great Depression. Really?
The American people knew this was some sort of scheme being perpetrated against them and the Capitol Hill switchboards were shut down from telephone calls demanding a NO VOTE, and the congressional email system was overloaded and froze. Once again, the American people were ignored by the majority in Congress.
The Scripture states, “If the thief be found, he must bring back all that was stolen.”
I believe the recent Bush-Paulson-Pelosi-Reed bailout bill was a legislative act to embezzle and extort money from the US Treasury for the benefit of Wall St. friends, and campaign donors. What they didn’t anticipate was the outrage and anger from the American people is so severe that whoever voted YES on the bailout bill is now likely to be voted out of office when they are up for reelection. I pray so!
We need to pray for all involved in the scheme to be exposed and prosecuted by the Justice Department. The FBI has already issued subpoenas to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. More need to come forth. We need to pray for all the secret deals and deal makers to be exposed. America needs to be delivered from these people now!
DID THEY NEED A CRISIS TO PUT OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE?
They needed a crisis! Are they trying to throw the election to Obama since he is the Saudi’s candidate of choice? I have never believed the leaders of the Republican Party, including Karl Rove, intend on John McCain winning the 2008 election. McCain seems to be another Bob Dole—a throw away candidate. They were so focused on Hillary Clinton, they never realized how powerful Barack Hussein Obama is. Now, they are off their game plan. No one thought the Clinton machine would lose. But it did. So now what?
Robert Pastor, co-chair of the Council of Foreign Relations Task Force which published a report called, “Toward a North American Community” stated in an interview with World Net Daily, “What I’m saying is that a crisis is an event which can force democratic governments to make difficult decisions like those that will be required to create a North American Community. It’s not that I want another 9-11 crisis, but having a crisis would force decisions that otherwise might not get made.”
WILL THE REAL OBAMA PLEASE STAND UP!
Look at the facts about Obama’s past that is purposely not being reported by the mainstream media.
- Campaign donations made through his website are coming from Middle Eastern countries, particularly from Saudi Arabia and the Gaza Strip.
- His friendships with terrorist such as Weathermen Underground leader William Ayers.
- No information on his college years.
- Obama’s father was not a US citizen.
- Obama’s Kenyan family members are known to be closely associated with Islamic militants in Africa.
Obama’s Foreign campaign contributions. The following information was published by syndicated columnist Maureen Dowd, June 29, 2008.
“Obama’s Troubling Internet Fund Raising”
Certainly the most interesting and potentially devastating phone call I have received during this election cycle came this week from one of the Obama’s campaign internet geeks. These are the staffers who devised Obama’s internet fund raising campaign which raised in the neighborhood of $200 million so far. That is more than twice the total funds raised by any candidate in history and this was all from the internet campaign.
Then, about two months into the campaign the daily contribution intake multiplied. Where was it coming from? One of the web site security monitors began to notice the bulk of the contributions were clearly coming in from overseas internet service providers and at the rate and frequency of transmission it was clear these donations were “programmed” by a very sophisticated user.
While the security people were not able to track most of the sources due to firewalls and other blocking devices put on these contributions, they were able to collate the number of contributions that were coming in seemingly from individuals but the funds were from only a few credit card accounts and bank electronic fund transfers. The internet service providers (ISP) they were able to trace were from Saudi Arabia, Iran, and other Middle Eastern countries. One of the banks used for fund transfers was also located in Saudi Arabia. Another concentrated group of donations was traced to a Chinese ISP with a similar pattern of limited credit card charges.
I guess we should have been somewhat suspicious when the numbers started to come out. We were told (no proof offered) that the Obama internet contributions were from $10 to $25 or so. If the $200 million figure is right, and the average contribution was $15, that would mean over 13 million individuals made contributions? That would also mean 13 million contributions would need to be processed. How did all that happen?
I believe the Obama campaign’s internet fund raising needs a serious, in depth investigation and audit. It also appears the whole question of internet fund raising needs investigation by the legislature and perhaps new laws to insure it complies not only with the latter of these laws, but the spirit as well.
Is it right for foreigners and foreign countries to have a financial investment in who becomes our next president?
Terrorist and militant friends.
Saul Alinsky. After college, Obama moved to Chicago to be part of Jerry Kellman’s organization as a “community organizer.” Kellman was a Saul Alinsky protégé. Among the goals of Alinsky was radical socialism and redistribution of wealth. Alinsky taught his protégés to “hide” their true goals by any means necessary. Lying was fine. The objective of Alinsky and Kellman was to turn people against the White Establishment.
Isn’t this similar to the purpose statements of the Nation of Islam and Black Supremacist groups?
Alinsky wrote two books outlining his organizational principals and strategies, Reveille for Radicals (1946) and Rules for Radicals (1971). Rules for Radicals opens with a quote about Lucifer written by Alinsky: “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical; from all our legends, mythology, and history (who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins-or which is which) the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.
The first rule of power tactic is: power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s almost impossible to counter attack ridicule. Also,it infuriates the opposition, who then reacts to your advantage.”
Does this describe the tactics we’ve seen from the Obama campaign? I would say, yes.
This is the tactics Obama has used throughout his short political career. Control, dominate, manipulate, and eliminate all opponents. Hide the real purpose for seeking power. Lie when necessary. Ridicule the enemy.
Aren’t you tired of being called a “racist” by Obama and his supporters? Aren’t you tired of the ridicule?
Gov. Sarah Palin is seen as the enemy by Obama. He has sent 30 lawyers, and dozens of private investigators to Alaska for the purpose of destroying her. Pray for Gov. Palin!
Help get the word out about who Obama really is, and why he is seeking power. We cannot afford for him to be our next president. Pray the voters turn out for McCain and Palin. Pray for God to forgive our sins and heal our land!
Man demands state verify birth records or remove senator from ballots
By Chelsea Schilling
In a second lawsuit challenging Barack Obama’s “natural born” citizenship, a Washington resident is demanding officials review original or certified birth documents for the Democratic Party presidential candidate.
Steven Marquis of Fall City, Wash., filed suit Oct. 9 in Washington State Superior Court, calling for Secretary of State Sam Reed to determine whether Obama is a citizen before Election Day. Marquis released a statement saying the state has the authority to “prevent the wholesale disenfranchisement of voters” who might have otherwise had the opportunity to choose a qualified candidate should records show Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen.
“At this point, Mr. Obama has not allowed independent or official access to his birth records nor supporting hospital records,” Marquis wrote. “The Hawaii Health Department has violated Federal law by ignoring formal Freedom of Information requests for the same.”
Marquis referenced prominent Pennsylvania Democrat and attorney Philip J. Berg’s lawsuit in U.S. District Court against Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee for proof of Obama’s American citizenship.
“Mr. Obama failed to respond to the District Court’s request to produce or allow access to the official documents (should they exist) and instead filed a motion to dismiss arguing the Plaintiff had no ‘standing’ or right to know,” he said. “This non-response as of 9/24/2008 in Federal court casts doubt on the veracity of the electoral system and is the principal reason for this lawsuit.”
Marquis said his late entry of the lawsuit is due to Obama’s “delay and subsequent non response to reasonable request for valid certificates.”
He indicated that his requests for certification of the birth documents were rejected by Washington’s Office of the Secretary of State. Marquis requested an injunction to force the office to confirm Obama’s U.S. citizenship or remove his name from Washington ballots. He said the agency is “specifically charged with certifying and guaranteeing the veracity of official documents and overseeing the elections to wit the people’s confidence in the fundamental aspect of democracy is maintained.”
However, Marquis continued, “To date, in this regard, Secretary of State Sam Reed has not carried out that fundamental duty.”
