    Weather Underground are cop-killers
    Resume of a Terrorist: Obama’s Buddy Ayers
    By Jim Kouri Sunday, August 31, 2008

    While the likes of the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and other news organizations have their reporters digging for dirt on Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, John McCain’s choice for vice president, their savior-in-waiting Barack Obama is getting a free ride at the expense of truth.

    It’s no secret that the denizens of America’s newsrooms want Obama sitting in the Oval Office, but Americans are being purposely duped by the Democrat National Committee’s volunteer publicists, formerly known as the mainstream news media.

    If it weren’t for talk radio and the blogosphere, even what is known about Obama and his friend, former Weather Underground domestic terrorist and leader William Ayers, would only be a paragraph or two in the backpages of most newspapers, or a sentence or two on most TV and radio news programs.

    On Friday night, one of America’s top talk show hosts—who happens to be an attorney and worked in the Reagan Justice Department as chief of staff—recited a list of terrorist acts that would elicit envy from Osama bin Laden. Mark Levin had his listeners glued to their radios or PCs as he read the resume of a man who should be serving life in prison instead of enjoying a tenured professorship at a major university and entertaining a possible US President in his home.

    Because of so-called “prosecutorial misconduct” Ayers escaped what could have been a life-sentence.

    As I write this “resume of a terrorist,” I find it difficult to understand how a man who is running for president of the United States would even know someone as anti-American and destructive as William Ayers. Plus, Ayers, his wife and their comrades at the Weather Underground are cop-killers. And Obama doesn’t just know him personally—he’s a close friend with Ayers.

    Here is the “resume” of an American terrorist:

    7 October 1969 – Bombing of Haymarket Police Statue in Chicago, apparently as a “kickoff” for the “Days of Rage” riots in the city October 8-11, 1969. The Weathermen later claimed credit for the bombing in their book, “Prairie Fire.”

    Message to the News Media: Instead of trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin, why don’t you cover indepth stories such as the Obama-Ayers relationship just for starters. If you need more leads for stories regarding Senator Obama and other unsavory characters, contact me at this publication.

    I think the media tried to cover the Obama-Ayers story, but there wasn't much to it.

    Yes, Ayers is a reprehensible man but some pundits on the right make his link to Obama seem to be more serious than it is. As for Palin, she seems pretty darn clean.

    September 01, 2008 Obama Begins the Ayers Walk Back and Heads Into the Reparations Trap

    Clarice Feldman
    [FONT=times new roman,times]Steve Diamond notes that Barack Obama is beginning a walk back on his preposterously untrue former claims that Ayers was just a guy in his neighborhood. Using Linda Lenz, a close ally of both men to do so, the Chicago Sun Times quotes her as admitting that Ayers and Obama closely collaborated on the failed Chicago Annenberg Challenge fiasco. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]
    Fishing around on Linda Lenz, however, simply underscores the Ayres-Obama-Trinity Church role in promoting the notion, anethema I'm sure to most voters, of an "educational debt" owed to Black students:
    [FONT=times new roman,times]The post includes a fascinating video of a panel chaired by Lenz in 2006 that included Bill Ayers. Ayers uses this May 2006 talk to endorse the proposal to "reframe" the concept of the achievement gap - the gap in outcomes between students of different racial, ethnic or class backgrounds - as an "education debt" that needs to be repaid by whites to people of color, in other words, reparations. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]This reparations-based approach to education was apparently first proposed the month before by Gloria Ladson-Billings in her [/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]Presidential Address[/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times] to the American Education Research Association. Ayers is now a Vice President-elect of AERA.

    [FONT=times new roman,times]The education debt idea has also been endorsed by Linda Darling-Hammond, education advisor to Barack Obama, via a group called the [/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]Forum for Education and Democracy[/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times] (FED). FED's Executive Director is George Wood who also was part of the panel chaired by Lenz in 2006.[/FONT]

    Many politicians have ties with shady characters.

    Its distressing but I do not think it says everything about Obama.
