The Ayers-Obama Media Primer

The Weathermen were not a 1960s group.
The Weathermen formed in 1969, declared war on "AmeriKKKa" (yes, that is where the popular spelling you hear in the rants of Rev. Jeremiah Wright and on left-wing political blogs comes from) in 1970, and carried out a string of attacks that finally ended with the arrests of the final remaining Weathermen, now called the May 19 Communist Movement, in 1985. One remaining Weatherman, Elizabeth Duke, is still a fugitive from the FBI and is considered armed and dangerous.

Calling the Weathermen a 60s terrorist group, when it did almost all of its bombing in the 1970s and 1980s, is as intellectually honest as calling Duran Duran a 50s rock and roll band because Simon Le Bon was born in 1958.

Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn are domestic terrorists.
They not an "anti-war activists" nor "radicals." Activists and radicals organize protests and sit-ins and harass elected officials.

A person that uses a bomb instead of a ballot is a terrorist. A person that leads a group of individuals that likes to use bombs instead of ballets is a terrorist leader. As this particular group of terrorists waged war against their own country, they are called domestic terrorists.

Contrary to a meme being pushed by interested parties, the Weather Underground killed innocent people.
Brian V. McDonnell an officer with the San Francisco Police, was ripped apart by shrapnel Feb 16, 1970. He succumbed to his injuries two days later. Officer Robert Fogarty was permanently injured in the same blast. FBI mole Larry Grathwohl says Bill Ayers built the bomb, and that Bernadine Dohrn placed it on the station window ledge. Nyack, NY Police Officer Waverly Brown and Sergeant Ed O'Grady, along with Brinks guard Peter Paige, were killed in an armored car robbery that was a joint operation between the Weather Underground and elements of the Black Liberation Army in 1981.

In addition to their successful homicide bombings, the Weather Underground failed in several attempts at mass murder.
On March 6, 1970, a pipe-bomb being constructed in a Greenwich Village townhouse detonated, killing three Weathermen and causing two others to flee. Recovered amid the rumble were four 12" dynamite-filled pipe-bombs and several fused eight-stick bundles of dynamite that had been destined for a non-commissioned officers dance that night at Fort Dix, NJ, targeting American soldiers and their civilian dates. The attack would likely have been the worst terrorist attack on American soil prior to Timothy McVeigh's attack in Oklahoma City.

Lesser known mass murder attempts of the Weathermen that same year included the attempted bombing of the Detroit Police Officers' Association, which Ayers wanted to occur when the building was fully occupied. An FBI mole within the Weathermen, Larry Grathwohl tipped police. A 13-stick bundle of dynamite was recovered and defused. A separate bombing targeting Detroit police foiled by Grathwohl involved 2 bombs, using 44 sticks of dynamite.

In 1984, Weathermen Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans were arrested while transporting 740 pounds of explosives and a cache of almost two dozen weapons, including a submachine gun.

Barack Obama and Bill Ayers do not cross paths casually, but have a lucrative multi-decade relationship.
Barack Obama and Bill Ayers met no later than 1987, where the worked together in the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools. There is some speculation that Ayers and Obama may have met even earlier in New York, perhaps as far back as 1984, but that connection hasn't been firmly established.

Ayers was instrumental in forming the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, and arranged for Obama to be chairman of the Board of Directors over more qualified Board members. Obama returned the favor by funneling more than a million dollars in grants to Ayers' Small School Workshop. Obama and Ayers served together for years on the Board of Directors of the Woods Fund. Obama was also a member of the Board of Directors of the Joyce Foundation, which may have influenced several grants made to Ayers.

Barack Obama "didn't know the history" of Bill Ayers' and Bernadine Dohrn's terrorist past when he kicked off his political career in their home in 1995.
Barack Obama has known Bill Ayers at least since 1987, and perhaps as far back as 1983-84. Bernardine Dohrn, once publicly labeled "the most dangerous woman in America" by none other than J. Edgar Hoover, was also well known as the inspiration for the 1988 movie Running on Empty. Subtle terrorists they were not.

Both Ayers and Dohrn were very well known throughout Chicago for their role in the "Days of Rage" riots and their terrorist leadership, and were minor celebrities among the radical leftist community Ayers, Dohrn, and Obama shared in Hyde Park.

Brinks robbery/murders in 1981?

Only six years difference.

Quite a bit different than claiming a 9 year olds ignorance.....

It's interesting when you put it together: Acorn. Subprime Meltdown. Bogus loans given to people who could never pay it back. Banks teetering on the edge with unstable loan portfolios. Hedge funds using short selling to challenge the valuation.

And George Soros behind it all, from the funding of Acorn, the promotion of Obama and the run on the banks. Read George's book "The Alchemy of Finance" where he explains his method of not waiting for, but engineering disequilibrium in markets. George used Obama to sue Bank of America to force them to issue these loans. Each loan was a promise that Soros knew couldn't be kept - just like the Bank of England's unsustainable currency position. Given sufficient leverage, Soros could kick the leg out and give the U.S. a reason to vote for a Marxist candidate he had made.

Look at the leverage used to set the market on fire. Why now? Why the sudden short selling? Why the rumors spread in the market by others controlled by Soros to cause bank runs? And how convenient that a candidate emerges with more than a decade "disappeared" from his life, other than phantom traces to socialist parties which also have their ties to Soros.

If you're looking for the man pulling puppet Obama's strings, look no further.

Bernadine Dohrn was employed as an associate at the same law firm as Michelle Obama. Barack Obama would meet Michelle while he was a summer intern at that same law firm. Did Dohrn meet Michelle Obama there? Or did the community activist Barack Obama meet Ayres before 1988?

Dohrn: "In 1982 she spent seven months in jail for refusing to cooperate with a grand jury investigating the 1981 Brink's robbery and murders in Rockland County."

"From 1984 to 1988, Dohrn was employed by the prestigious Chicago law firm Sidley Austin." Wiki entry, mistakenly attributed to the above Times article. Apparently taken from her CV

Michelle Obama:
"grew up in the South Shore community area of Chicago"

"She graduated from High School in 1981."

"Following law school, she was an associate at the Chicago office of the law firm Sidley Austin, where she first met her husband."

"She obtained her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Harvard Law School in 1988."

"She met Barack Obama when they were the only two African Americans at their law firm and she was assigned to mentor him while he was a summer associate."


Barack Obama:

"After four years in New York City, Obama moved to Chicago to work as a community organizer for three years from June 1985 to May 1988 as director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), a church-based community organization originally comprising eight Catholic parishes in Greater Roseland (Roseland, West Pullman, and Riverdale) on Chicago's far South Side."

"Obama entered Harvard Law School in late 1988"

"During his summers, he returned to Chicago where he worked as a summer associate at the law firms of Sidley & Austin in 1989."

Barack Obama is a dangerous, dishonest, grasping politician. He didn't care that these people were terrorists. He either agreed with them, or he didn't care what they'd done, so long as it benefitted him. Either way, he is an empty, soulless opportunist. No one, and I mean NO ONE, comes up through the Chicago machine clean.

I'm going to write a letter to Jerry Lewis, and see if we can't get the congenitally stupid a spot on the telethon this year.

I mean come on, it isn't even a complete frigging sentence now...

come on Richard,give it a rest.this has absolutly nothing to do w/the guys skin color.its as plain as the nose on your face,hes a dirty polition(sp)

What WOULD you do without your one size fits all excuse for everything, and every situation in your life?

Posted by: Bill Smith at October 10, 2008 06:46 AM

Richard, are you actually trying to claim that we should give Mr. Obama a pass on associating with a known terrorist because of his skin color? Is a dark skin tone an excuse for doing anything reprehensible?

Posted by: C-C-G at October 10, 2008 07:13 AM

This is a bundle of truths, half-truths and suppositions. Ayres is reprehensible, he is also a "Chicago Citizen of the Year" and the Annenberg Challenge is funded by a famous Republican.

When the economy is in free fall, this is the best you can do? Does it really make sense to poison the well for someone who is at this point is likely as not the next president?

Perhaps it is too much to expect patriotism from one who calls himself, at least in part, a "Confederate." My son, in case you are unaware, those boys actually did attack the United States and killed millions.

Posted by: IrishJazz at October 10, 2008 08:08 AM

The Republicans better come up with something a bit more relevant to Americans than Ayers if they wish to have any chance in the election

Posted by: John Ryan at October 10, 2008 08:54 AM

Peeps --

Richard "Dick" Hurts? Don't rise to the troll bait. And John Ryan: don't worry -- Ayers, Wright, Rezko, Khalidi, Fanny, and Fred ... get your "Hillary 2012" stickers ready ... the big O is headed to footnote-dom

Posted by: jamie hunt at October 10, 2008 11:13 AM

Everyone, could it be that Richard's comment was written "tongue-in-cheek"?

To Terry Robbins:
Very good Terry, an excellent example of attacking the messenger and not the message.

But really, we all know that events precipitated 145 years ago by democrats are just as relevant today as those democratic candidates lie about now. After all, it was predominantly members of the democratic party that led the southern rebellion and wrote that very confederate constitution of which you eloquently write.

From Slavery, the KKK, the WWI anti-German riots, eugenics, Japanese Internment, to the poisoned race-bating we see today are all products of "progressive" democratic party politics. When you play politics with race, then race - not the individual - becomes important. And the extremes of such politics can spawn things like the Weather Underground.

Which is why we complain about it.

Have a nice day. :)

So what you're saying is that you know nothing about Chicago politics.

Just a tip: if you're going to write a "media primer" that makes a bunch of factual claims about somebody, you might want to provide some evidence to back those claims up. Like, maybe, links.

Posted by: Sean at October 10, 2008 02:56 PM

Sean, perhaps you're new here, but every single fact in this post--and they are all documented facts unless otherwise noted as just possible connections--have previously been covered on this site, most within the past few weeks, and generally multiple times.

Check out the October and September archives, or if you have fears that I may not be playing things honestly, simply Google things for yourself. When I composed this post I made sure to use dates and names and specific details, because I know the media will never trust me (which is fair, as I've learned to never trust them), but if they plug the data I provided into their research tools and find the same thing, it might eventually sink in that the Obama-Ayers is exactly as I described.

I see the trolls have invaded this thread.

When does troll season open?

Posted by: C-C-G at October 10, 2008 06:09 PM

Now try to connect.

Ayers is a socialist, besides Weatherman. He's well connected to members of Democratic Socialist of America in Chicago. DSA Chicago supported Obama's first political stunt under New Party. Obama launched his career in Ayer's living room. ACORN leaders in Chicago are members of DSA Chicago. Obama's lectures in Harvard showed that he's teaching people to be radical against the American system of government and economy. Obama worked with ACORN in his Chicago days. Obama is a member of Black Liberation Theology Church of Jeremiah Wright. Wright is a supporter of DSA Chicago. Many ACORN people are member of Wright's Church, the TUCC. Many Jeremiads are now member of DSA Chicago. Note that BLT principles are consistent with the overall platform of modern American communism by CPUSA and DSA.

ACORN uses young people to be progressive, especially in participating in the Election. ACORN is and operative implementing Fusion Strategy of Communist Michael Harrington. Harrington chose Democratic Party as its host. That's why many communists and socialists in Chicago run under Democratic Party. Fusion strategy has been implemented in many debunked as election fraud activities.

Ayers and Obama's work for the youth and juveniles (outside and inside of prison cells)have been long and massive. This is why Obama is so popular in universities and other schools. Ayers stepson is now working in Venezuela to support socialism growth, and a major supporter of Pres. Chavez.

Both Communist Party of USA and DSA (all chapters) including other parties Working Families Party (a major proponent of New Party's Fusion Strategy) have long given their Support to Obama since the primaries. Bill Clinton called them the Far Left.

Note that modern communism and socialism in America has a platform of "anti-war" and appeasement. CODEPINK and MOVEON are party to UN manifesto in 2001 to protest the impending declaration of war on terror by Bush (i.e., prior to declaration). Funny, Barack's speech against the war on terror exactly matched the CODEPINK and MOVEON anti-war meme.

Reading Barack's two memoirs, we will see that the above connections and dots are consistent with his own memoirs and recollection of his own ideas. The two memoirs can only be written by a socialist or communist. Either Ayers had ghost-written Obama's memoirs or not, Obama is really a socialist.

MSM, being too liberal, helped in conceiling the facts on the dirty background of Obama.

Obama is really a Manchurian Candidate of the Socialists and Communists.

And now that you've cleared that up, Sherlock, get to work on the whole "moon landing" hoax.

Posted by: Jim Treacher at October 11, 2008 02:28 AM

In the context of the upheavals of the 60's- 70's, I would argue that the police were combatants ina domestic civil war, and were therefore perfectly legitimate targets of the Weathermen and Black Panthers. The police departments of Detroit and Chicago were almost all white at the time, and continually terrorized the mostly black citizenry of those cities, as well as antiwar protestors. The most concrete examples are the "police riot" at the '68 Democratic Convention, and the brutal murder of Panther Fred Hampton by Chicago's finest.

I realize not all cops are bad people, but when you wear that uniform you choose a side, and you accept the consequences.

Posted by: Lev Bronstein at October 11, 2008 09:34 AM

"I realize not all cops are bad people, but when you wear that uniform you choose a side, and you accept the consequences."

Well, this is a step up from pretending to care about the police, so I'll give you that. What are you, Bronstein - another rich white Parlor Pink trying to live out your revolutionary fantasies through cute little brown people?

And speaking of "terrorizing" the Black community, David Horowitz wrote in "Radical Son" that the Panthers used beatings, intimidation, and murder to extort protection from the Black communities where they conducted their operations.(BTW - the sources he cites include writings by the Panthers themselves; they can't be dismissed as Conservative "misinformation".) The Panthers even murdered White radicals who supported them. Something for all the Bronsteinesque keyboard revolutionaries out there to keep in mind - no?

Posted by: Nine-of-Diamonds at October 11, 2008 10:53 AM

yes it is true, when you put on a police uniform, you choose a is called 'good'. This is the side defending ordinary innocent people from dangerous criminals. Is that a bad thing?

Posted by: realityman at October 11, 2008 12:00 PM

I live a million miles away and have learnt all I care to about Ayers in less than an hour (I mixed my research between left, right and his own propaganda). That a possible president can miss this (for even a few years) is questionable. McCain's Keating Five is not of the same league...and this seems to be only one amongst many contradictions with The One. (By the way..'That One' relatively easy to see can be replaced with "That Guy", or "That Dude" (that one senator sitting right there maybe?)).
While I have heard some quite bad stories of McCains personal conduct over the years (unconfirmed)...I have also read (unconfirmed) his boot camp friend discount racial prejudice. The article was from a few years ago (probably 2000 election...but i the US media public domain) and not overly in McCain's favour...although his convictions were still evident. It also made me think (3 elections later is it?)...a definite survivor (already proven...I just mean politically), and determined.

Also - that McCain was all over Fannie and Freddie for you guys a few years ago. Obama's position at that time? Or his campaign contributions from said couple I wonder? McCains too for that if anyone knows. The comparison would be interesting.
