It appears the General Election has begun. The new presumptive nominee now has his work cut out for him. The media has finally begun to look into Obama’s past. Today the Associated Press finally did a little of what they should have done months ago. For those of us who have done research on the candidates, this is old news. But for the first time reader, hold onto your seats! This election season will be a very rocky road.
Don’t say the Clinton supporters didn’t try to tell you, we did. But the supporters were to drunk with the kool-aid to listen. And for the undecided, well that’s the best part, finally it appears you will know more than you want to about Obama. The general public, was not warned or told about many things. The media choose to put on there cheer leading skirts and shake their pom-poms for Obama. They became so caught up in “he’s great”, they totally lost the concept of “the truth”.
The truth as reported in AP today, gives everyone a insight into the 527 ads, and RNC ads we all will see. And believe me, they will be good…..
Here are just a few of Obama’s friends..
Rezko is a Chicago businessman, convicted of more than a dozen charges this week. ANTOIN REZKO: “Tony” Rezko is a businessman who has helped raise campaign money for Obama and many other Illinois politicians. He was convicted Wednesday on 16 of 24 counts involving mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and aiding and abetting bribery.Rezko and his family donated at least $21,457 to Obama and helped raise over $200,000 more, though not for his presidential bid. He also advised Obama on the purchase of a new Chicago home and, in his wife’s name, purchased a vacant lot next door to the new Obama home when the seller wanted to dispose of both properties at the same time. Rezko then sold a slice of the property to Obama.
Ayers is a professor — and former member of the radical Weather Underground.People who might complicate Obama’s campaign. WILLIAM AYERS: Today, Ayers is a university professor and a member of Chicago’s intellectual establishment. Forty years ago he was a member of the Weather Underground, a radical group that claimed responsibility for a series of bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.
Ayers was a fugitive for years with his wife, fellow radical Bernadine Dohrn. But after surrendering in 1980, the charges against Ayers were dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct.
EMIL JONES: Jones, the president of the Illinois Senate, amounts to Obama’s political godfather and was an important part of Obama’s longshot victory for U.S. Senate in 2004. He helped the little-known politician meet the right people, and he picked Obama to handle high-profile legislation during the two years leading up to the election.Jones is known for steering state money to a few favored institutions, including some that employ his relatives. Several of his relatives have gotten state jobs, and his wife’s government salary jumped 60 percent after he became Senate president. He has played an important role in blocking ethics legislation in Illinois.
RASHID KHALIDI: Khalidi is a scholar and author on Middle Eastern affairs who has criticized Israeli policies and was part of a Palestinian advisory panel to peace talks in the early 1990s.They met while both were teaching at the University of Chicago and living in the same neighborhood. Obama and his wife sometimes had dinner with Khalidi and his wife, Mona. The Khalidis hosted a political fundraiser for Obama in 2000, and the Woods Fund charity gave money to the Arab-American Action Network, run by Mona Khalidi, while Obama served on the charity’s board
JEREMIAH WRIGHT: Wright was Obama’s minister for 20 years. He helped Obama embrace Christianity, performed Obama’s marriage and baptized Obama and his two daughters.
MICHAEL PFLEGER: Pfleger, the white leader of a mostly black Catholic parish in Chicago, has been known as a firebrand for years. He protests everything from gun shops to Jerry Springer. Obama has referred to him as a spiritual adviser.Recently, he visited Obama’s church and preached a sermon in which he mocked Hillary Clinton and accused her of expecting to win the presidential nomination because she was white. Pfleger apologized, but Obama condemned the remarks and resigned from the church.
Now that the AP has reported all this I am sure there will be more. These kind of things show that Obama will be unelectable in November. Americans have been done a great injustice by our own media. The failure to mention any of this, has spun a protective web around Obama. But now that the general election has begun, it appears, finally the gloves have come off.
It is however, a little to late. This information should have been shared, by all media. But it was not, and may not for some time. Not all the media has picked up on the news in today’s AP. Msnbc, and Cnn show no signs of any of this news. They are still shielding the candidate. This will not be possible in the coming months, the swift ads, and RNC ads are already starting.
By November all these names will be common in the American household. Clinton supporters have been called racist, bitter and many other names to fowl to post. But that was not the case, you see, they did thier homework. But the real truth is, the media and the candidate have used a smoke screen to fool the voters. The charismatic smile, and large cheering crowds have deceived many. The long speeches that offer hope are more hype than real hope. All the while Karl Rove sits on Fox news and smiles… He knows what has happened, he also did his homework.
The DNC have what they want, now let them live with it. Let the games begin….
