Barack Obama has been trying to minimize his relationship with terrorist William Ayers, but news this week of Obama and Rashid Khalidi further reinforces that Obama has a dangerous circle of friends.

Hugh Hewitt sheds light on the matter at

Khalidi is a Columbia professor and strong advocate for the Palestinians. He is a man of the left, and he is close to Obama and Ayers. Obama’s friendship with Khalidi would be unsettling to many supporters of Israel –if it was well known, which it isn’t.

Read the transcript between Hugh Hewitt and Stanley Kurtz on Barack Obama’s ties to terrorist Bill Ayers and Palestinian advocate Rashid Khalidi.

WorldNetDaily further delves into Khalidi and his relationship with Obama…

The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a “catastrophe” and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens.

The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group.

But don’t worry about these terrorists that launched Obama’s political career. According to Barack and his campaign, this stuff is just a distraction.

Obama the Thug Talks Trash to McCain

October 9, 2008 · Filed Under Debates, John McCain, William Ayers ·  

Barack Obama is unhappy that people are talking about his relationship with terrorist William Ayers.

Just like with his friends Reverend Wright and Tony Rezko, the William Ayers that we are learning about is not the William Ayers that Obama knew.

Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before.

Anyhow, it appears to be a spot on characterization from Bill Clinton when he referred to Barack Obama as “a Chicago thug” given his latest comments.

In an interview with ABC News, Obama expressed that he was surprised John McCain didn’t bring up Ayers in the debate:

“I am surprised that, you know, we’ve been seeing some pretty over-the-top attacks coming out of the McCain campaign over the last several days, that he wasn’t willing to say it to my face.”

I do think the moderator of the debate two days ago, Tom Brokaw, should have brought up Obama and Ayers.

Mr. Thug: the moderator asks the questions, not Senator McCain.

I’d be curious to hear more about Obama and his sketchy friends and associations in the next debate.

Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden

October 7, 2008 · Filed Under William Ayers ·  

Q: What do Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden have in common?

A: They both have terrorist friends who bombed the Pentagon.

I wish I could say that was a joke. But Obama’s friend, William Ayers, is an unrepentant terrorist.

In a bit of ironic timing, the New York Times ran a feature on Ayers on 9/11/01, where Ayers stated, “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”

This is the same William Ayers who stated in 1970 that the Weatherman (his terrorist organization) philosophy was, ”Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.”

In addition to bombing the Pentagon in 1972, William Ayers bombed New York City Police Headquarters in 1970 and the Capitol building in 1971.

Interesting friends you keep, Obama.

I’ve Got Disgust for Obama Redux

Back in July, I created a video about Barack Obama and his relationships with the likes of Tony Rezko, former Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson, William Ayers, Father Pfleger, and Reverend Wright.

At the time, many folks weren’t aware of William Ayers, the destruction to the economy via Fannie Mae, etc. So I figured I’d bring back this music video for a second go around.

Missouri Gov: Obama is Abusing Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

Missouri Governor Matt Blunt issued a statement over the weekend to exposed plans by Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

This is on the heels of recent reports where the Obama campaign has tried to suppress news of his association with terrorist William Ayers.

So, if you are in Missouri, don’t write, talk, or think about Obama in the context of William Ayers, Reverend Wright, ACORN, Tony Rezko, Father Pfleger, infanticide, voting “present” or not showing at all for controversial legislation, and any number of other liabilities from Obama’s past.

Obama’s Totalitarian Paradise

September 16, 2008 · Filed Under News, William Ayers ·  

Barack Obama generally likes the First Amendment, except when he is not happy with what people are saying about him.

Just a few weeks ago, Barack Obama was trying to intimidate TV stations from running a commercial about his relationship with terrorist William Ayers.

And now the Obama campaign is trying to dictate which guests are on the WGN Radio station, as reported by the Chicago Tribune.

Chicago radio station WGN-AM is again coming under attack from the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama for offering airtime to a controversial author.

It is the second time in recent weeks the station has been the target of an “Obama Action Wire” alert to supporters of the Illinois Democrat.

Monday night’s target was David Freddoso, who the campaign said was scheduled to be on the station from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Chicago time.

This pattern of attempting to censor should be profoundly disturbing to anybody who values free speech.

Barack Obama Battles the First Amendment

Barack Obama is trying to intimidate TV stations from running a commercial about his relationship with terrorist William Ayers, according to

Obama not only aired a response ad to the spot linking him to William Ayers, but he sought to block stations the commercial by warning station managers and asking the Justice Department to intervene. The campaign also planned to compel advertisers to pressure stations that continue to air the anti-Obama commercial.

If the commercial isn’t truthful, why doesn’t he clear the air? These sort of heavy handed tactics to censor information are a bit too reminiscent of the activities taking place recently in China.

Is this what we can expect if Obama is elected President… freedom of speech, unless Obama doesn’t like what’s being said?

I’ve Got Disgust… for Obama

Music video response to “I’ve Got a Crush… on Obama” by the Obama Girl. An uplifting tune backed by bongo playing and timely lyrics about Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama.

What About Your Friends, Obama?

There is an old saying, “Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are.” I think most anybody would say this is a truism, except hysterical Obama supporters.

When you look at some of the friends of Obama, there is Reverend Wright, who got quite a bit of attention for a time.

He’s an unapologetic racist and hate-monger.

And how about some of Barack Obama’s other pals, who haven’t gotten so much attention to date?

There is also Reverend James Meeks, who is a delegate pledged to Obama, and a Pastor with a penchant for racist rants.

William Ayers, 1960s-era radical and leader of the Weather Underground, is also cozy with Obama. Obama doesn’t think this should matter, because he was a wee youngster when Ayers was committing acts of domestic terrorism.

Back in January during a debate, Hillary Clinton mentioned Obama’s friend and renowned Chicago slumlord Tony Rezko.

Who else is out there?

For anybody keeping a tally, Obama’s friends include racist hate mongers, terrorists, and slumlords.

But he’s such an eloquent reader of speeches, so let’s make him President.

Obama and Terrorist Friend William Ayers

May 18, 2008 · Filed Under Ethics, Homeland Security, William Ayers ·  

The Weather Underground bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol and the New York City Police Headquarters.

The leader of the Weather Underground was 1960s-era radical, William Ayers.

Ayers is also a friend and political campaigner for Barack Obama.

As recounted in the May 26, 2008 issue of The Weekly Standard

At the Philadelphia presidential debate in April, George Stephanopoulos asked Obama about his relationship with the Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, who with his comrades bombed several government buildings in the 1970s. Obama protested that he knew Ayers as a neighbor and professor of English (actually, he teaches education) whose “detestable acts” when Obama was eight were no reflection on “me and my values.”

But as soon as it was her turn to speak, Obama’s opponent piled on. Ayers and Obama had served together on the board of the Wood Foundation in “a paid directorship position,” noted Clinton. It was legitimate to raise questions about their relationship, she insisted, since Ayers’s bombings had resulted in people’s deaths.

So let me get this straight, if somebody committed terrorism, but it was before they starting hanging out with Obama, it is irrelevant?

OK, just checking.
