Dr Jerome Corsi, Harvard, Ph.D., Graduated Magna Cum Laude
Previously Authored "Unfit to Command" - John Kerry's 'Swift-Boat-Vets'

[1] Homeland Security: Obama's Goal is a world without nuclear weapons, unilaterally;

Obama: "I am the only major candidate to oppose this war from the beginning and, as president, I will end it."

[2] Obama to Reduce American Military

Obama: "I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems ...

[3] Obama to Reduce American Military

Obama: "To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons. I will seek a ban on the production of fissile materials.... to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals."

[4] On Jobs:

Obama: "Small towns get bitter over long-term joblessness" On Sunday, April 6, 2008, at a private fund-raising event in San Francisco, Barack Obama was speaking to a small group of wealthy supporters added "Angry and bitter, clinging to their guns and Bibles."

[He was comfortable in the belief that his off-the-record comments were not being recorded.

[5] On Principles & Values:

Obama: "Father's car crash death may have included alcohol" In 'Dreams from My Father', Obama paints a heroic picture of his father - reality is much bleaker than tale Obama spins in his book.

'Dreams from My Father' opens with scene from 1982, Obama, just turned 21, is shaken by a phone call from Africa, his father has been killed in a car accident. Obama's version omits Obama Senior killed himself driving drunk. Truth first disclosed by London's Daily Mail in a January 2007 Expos.

"Friends say drinking blighted his [Obama Senior's] life," the Daily Mail reported; "he lost both his legs while driving under the influence, and eventually lost his job."

Drunken driving ended Obama Senior's "brilliant" civil service career as a top Harvard-trained 'econo-metrician' in the newly independent Kenyan government. After Barack Obama Junior's 21st birthday, Obama Senior's drama ended by killing himself, again driving drunk.

[6] On Principles & Values:

Obama: Father had a wife in Africa when he met and married Ann Dunham. Obama traces his father's history in Kenya back to the time his father herded goats while attending the local "British colonial school."

Obama claims his father showed such "great promise" that he won a scholarship: "on the eve of Kenyan independence, he had been selected by Kenyan leaders and American sponsors to attend a university in the US."

Obama proudly tells the reader his father joined "the first large wave of Africans to be sent forth to master Western technology and bring it back to forge a new modern Africa."

Obama carefully omits the underside of the story, that when his father headed off at age 23 to Hawaii, he abandoned his young wife Kezia, whom he had married at age 18.

Nor does Obama mention that Kezia was then pregnant with his father's first child when he deserted her.

London Daily Mail reports that Obama Senior persuaded Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, a "naive 18-year-old white girl, to marry him, without disclosing to her that he had left behind in Africa a wife he had not divorced."

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 16-17 Aug 1, 2008].

[7] On Principles & Values:

Obama: Father left family for Harvard education and he as 'Junior' was born August 4, 1961. In the next sentence, Obama intentionally skips over several more key details.

After noting his father's decision to leave Hawaii for Cambridge, MA Obama explains, "A separation occurred. The mother an child stayed behind, but the bond of love survived the distances..."

Obama's ellipsis omits the facts of the central family drama that shaped his life. We are led to believe that Obama Senior had no choice, that Harvard was his only option, and that the Harvard scholarship did not provide enough funds his mother and himself.

Instead Obama provides the true explanation some hundred pages later: "The New School agreed to pay for everything - enough to pay for all three of us," his mother tells her son.

Obama's mother explains why his father abandoned them to go to Harvard: "Harvard just agreed to pay tuition. But Barack [Senior] was such a stubborn bastard, he had to go to Harvard. 'How can I refuse him the best education?' That's all he could think about, proving that he was the best."

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 17-18 Aug 1, 2008].

[8] On Principles & Values:

Obama: Father's upbringing was Muslim, although never religious. In his autobiography, we learn ... Obama explains to a girlfriend in Hawaii that his name is not really "Barry," as he was then commonly called, but "Barack," a name he explains means "Blessed" in Arabic.

He further explains that the name was his father's and says, "My grandfather was a Muslim."

[In an interview with Barack's uncle, Sayid Obama], Sayid affirmed that he and his brother were both born into a religious Islamic family and were raised as Muslims. "I did not see my brother practice Islam," Sayid recalled, "especially after he came back from his studies in the US; I did not consider him to be very religious."

While Kenya is approximately 85% Christian, a Muslim minority dates back to 1730. Listening to Sayid, there is no doubt Obama Senior was a Muslim by birth and upbringing, even if his devotion as a Muslim remained in doubt. The facts are that the Obama family in Africa is a Muslim family of the predominantly Christian Luo tribe].

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 20-23 Aug 1, 2008].

[9] On Principles & Values:

Obama: Claims he visited Africa 3 times; 1986, 1992 & 2006, the last with Michelle. This is not the case.

"Obama has been in Africa three times," his uncle Sayid insisted. "The first time was in 1986. Then he came again in 1992, when he was collecting material for his autobiography. Then the last time was 2006, when he visited Kenya as a US senator."

In his autobiography, Obama does not disclose clearly the date of the trip to Kenya he discusses, nor does he make clear that he took two separate trips before the autobiography. Rather, we are presented with what evidently is a composite of experiences from both trips, without any way of knowing which related experiences came when.

"The trip in 2006 was the second time Obama came with his wife," Sayid further specified. "He first came with her in 1992, when they were getting ready to get married. Then he visited with her as his wife in 2006."

Nowhere in the autobiography does Obama disclose that his wife-to-be accompanied him to Africa on the 1992 trip.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 20-23 Aug 1, 2008].

[10] On Principles & Values:

Obama: Father had 3 or 4 wives. Thus Barack has at least 5 half-siblings When it comes to telling the story of his grandfather, Obama says: "If I could just piece together his story [that of his grandfather, Hussein Obama], I thought, then perhaps everything else might fall into place."

The problem is that the grandfather's tale turns out to be as complicated as the father's, filled with multiple wives and the resulting half-brothers and sisters, among them Barack Obama Sr.Barack's uncle Sayid Obama was not even sure how many wives his brother had: 3 or 4, maybe more.

There were at least three: the 18-year-old wife, Kezia, whom Obama Sr abandoned when he left Kenya to study in Hawaii; Ann Dunham, Obama Jr's mother, whom Obama Sr abandoned when he left Hawaii to study at Harvard; and Ruth Nidesand, the woman from Harvard who followed Obama Sr back to Kenya and married him there.

The number of children Obama Sr had is equally uncertain. Sayid Obama paused to think when asked how many. "About six," he concluded, although he could not say for sure.

[11] Rewrites History to include JFK as his benefactor.

Obama: Claims his father came to US on Obama rewrote history to invent the complete fabrication that Robert & President Jack Kennedy were the ones who decided to do an airlift that brought Obama's father to America.

Truthfully, the 1959 airlift which brought 81 Kenyan students to the US including Obama's father, happened before JFK was president and did not benefit from any Kennedy family funding.

JFK met with Kenyan leader Tom Mboya after the 1959 airlift had already occurred. Mboya met with JFK on July 26, 1960, to convince JFK to fund a second airlift of African students to the US. The Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation, decided to give Mboya $100,000 to pay for the second airlift.

If Obama owes his life to any politician, it is to Tom Mboya, not John Kennedy.

[12] Strange behaviour of his granddad.

Obama: Claims his mother was named "Stanley Ann" because grandfather wanted a son.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 40-41 Aug 1, 2008].

[13] His Mother rejects her religion, race, rural culture and nation.

Obama: Many attribute mother's marriages to being anthropologist. Reporters and commentators trying to explain Stanley Ann's marriages often note she was an anthropologist, as if that professional designation settles everything.

[His Mother rejects her religion (Christianity), race (marries two black Muslims, her rural culture (Kansas) and her nation: USA for Indonesia & Kenya.]

An enthusiastic belief in the 1950s and 1960s that the study of natives could help unlock questions of "natural right" probably explains why even Obama saw his mother in terms of "New Frontier" liberalism.

Obama recalls "she was a lonely witness for secular humanism."She passed away in 1995 from ovarian cancer at the age of 52, the year Obama's autobiography was published, so we cannot ask her what her motivation was to marry Barack Senior and Lolo Soetoro.

Was she rebelling against her parents, or the Christian religion, or the Kansas culture into which she was born?

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 46 Aug 1, 2008].

[14] On Principles & Values:

Obama: Claims he preferred to live with grandparents in Hawaii over his mother in Indonesia. In the 1970s, for three years, Obama lived with his mother and his sister in Hawaii.

When his mother was ready to return to Indonesia, Obama did not want to go. His mother told Obama she wanted him to return to Indonesia with her and his half-sister, he "immediately said no."

Rebelling, Obama decided to stay in Hawaii, confident he had "arrived at an unspoken pact with my grandparents: I could live with them and they'd leave me alone, so long as I kept trouble out of sight."

{The truth seems to be that subtly, Obama is saying not that he would stay out of trouble, but only that he would keep hidden the trouble he seemed to be planning to find.

By returning to Indonesia alone and abandoning a son who refused to go back to Indonesia, Ann went "native," as many commentators harshly suggested.

Obama rationalized it was best for him to be alone, so he could finally sort out his search for identity as an African-American.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 48-49 Aug 1, 2008].

[15] Attended Muslim School

Obama: He didn't attend the most radical of Islamic schools called "madrassas", but was introduced to Islam. The controversy began when "Insight Magazine" asserted that Obama had attended a radical madrassa school in Indonesia, where jihad, or holy war, was taught but this was not correct

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 51 Aug 1, 2008].

[16] He Keeps Re-Creating His Story

Obama: He claims his race awareness began with skin-bleach ad Obama claims he came across a picture in Life magazine of "the black man who tried to peel off his skin."

Evidently the man had tried to lighten his skin with a chemical process & the result was a disaster. The experience caused Obama to feel the moment of self-doubt he suggests comes to every black child in America "undergoing similar moments of revelation."

Obama began noticing there was no one black in the Sears-Roebuck Christmas catalog.

The only problem is that Life reported no such issue ever existed. Obama suggested it might have been Ebony. Ebony's archivists could find no such article, either.

The story of Life magazine is apocryphal at best. At any rate, the memory of the event/nonevent is so firmly planted in Obama's mind that it seems to have become an emotional truth for him, as equally powerful psychologically as a real experience.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 65-66 Aug 1, 2008].

[17] Obama is one for "Taking Long Shots!" His multi-trillion dollar bail-out!

Obama: Nicknamed "Barry the O'Bomber" in prep school basketball, Obama was accepted to a school that the island's upper class fought to get their children admitted to. Obama had been on a waiting list and his grandfather had to use influence from his boss, a Punahou graduate, to get Obama in.

"A young black man struggles for acceptance at an institution of privilege, where he finds himself growing so angry and disillusioned at the world around him that he turns to alcohol and drugs," as summed up by the Chicago Tribune.

Barry Obama as he was known at Punahou, went out for the school basketball team & did his best to fit in socially, while struggling to make modest grades.

"A member of the varsity squad, though not a starter, Obama was called "Barry the O'Bomber" by teammates because of his long shots." Obama's friends at the time do not remember Obama as an angry black kid. Instead they remember him as fairly normal, just one of them.

The one time Obama Senior visited, the two of them fought over Barry's laziness about homework.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 71-73 Aug 1, 2008].

[18] His anger at both Parent's Abandonment

Obama: His racial angst from paternal abandonment, not injustice reveals where Obama's racial angst comes from.

Obama is not descendant of a slave, did not grow up in urban ghetto, an impoverished family, and he was not unjustly prosecuted for some crime he did not commit. Where is the social injustice he has suffered?

What Obama had experienced to young adulthood was not intense racial injustice, but the abandonment of his father, followed by the abandonment of his mother.

His white Midwestern grandparents loved him enough to provide him a home, modest as it may have been, and to pay a tuition his mother most likely could not afford, and which his father showed no interest in paying, even if he had the means.

Yes, Obama was mixed-race, but what had he suffered from being born to an African father and a white mother? Beyond a confused identity, Obama never suffered poverty and he ended up the Harvard-educated son of a Harvard-educated father.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 79 Aug 1, 2008].

[19] Radical Malcolm-X His Hero.

Obama: Claims he admired repeated acts of "self-creation" by Malcolm X. In relating his own development in high school, Obama singles out the impact Malcolm X's autobiography had on him.

"His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me," Obama writes, but is quick to add that he rejected Malcolm X's "talk of blue-eyed devils and apocalypse."

Obama alludes to Malcolm X's autobiography, where Malcolm railed at the white man who had raped his grandmother, saying, "If I could drain away his blood that pollutes MY body, and pollutes MY complexion, I'd do it! Because I hate every drop of the rapist's blood that's in me!"

The passage takes up one paragraph in Malcolm X's autobiography, a book of 455 pages. Yet it is one that stuck in Obama's mind.

Reflecting on the passage, Obama wrote, "I knew that my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction. I was left to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother and my grandparents at some uncharted border."

At this point, Obama's race, he self-determines, is African-American.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p. 90-91 Aug 1, 2008].

[20] On Tribal-Muslim Garb

Obama: Claims he is dressed in Africa in traditional garb, not "Muslim attire". The infamous photograph of Obama in African garb was originally published by Afrika Online on Sept. 1, 2006. The photo shows Obama dressed as a Somali elder.

The photo is authentic; it was taken during Obama's visit to a rural area in northeastern Kenya. There is little doubt Obama wore the Somali elder garb, but we can easily find dozens of photos of U.S. politicians wearing local costume during overseas travel.

On February 4, 2008, the tabloid National Enquirer published the photo in an article that asserted Obama was wearing "Muslim attire" on a trip to Kenya. The Obama campaign decried the National Enquirers sensationalism, arguing that Obama was dressed in traditional tribal garb, not "Muslim attire," much as Pres. Bush might take on traditional native costumes when meeting in foreign countries.

However, Somalia is almost entirely Sunni Muslim, so in that sense, the Somali elder garb would be Islamic.

[21] Help's in Kenya

Obama: CDC estimate: a half million would follow Obama's AIDS test In a staged public event at the Kenya Medical Research Institute in Kisian, Obama and his wife took an AIDS test, to demonstrate to the local people in a public forum that the test was safe.

At the door of a mobile AIDS testing facility provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, Obama was photographed with a microphone, speaking to the assembled crowd. The primary message of the AIDS event was a universal message, namely, that AIDS testing is safe:

"One of the reasons we are here today is because HIV/AIDS has ravaged the community," Obama told the assembled crowd. "Too many people, too many children have gotten sick. So one of the things we're going to do here in front of this van today is that my wife and I are going to get tested for HIV/AIDS, because if you know your status, you can prevent illness."

The Centers for Disease Control suggested to Obama that as many as a half-million Kenyans would take the HIV/AIDS test after they saw him and his wife safely do it themselves.

[22] Personal Ties with Kenyan President Odinga:

Obama: He is the first president to have extended family abroad. Granted, Obama's brothers and sisters in Africa are half-brothers and half-sisters. Even his "Granny" is not a paternal grandmother, but the second wife of a grandfather who was equally as polygamist as was Obama's father.

What personal ties to the White House will come from Kenya? Are all members of the family equally satisfied and finally resolved that they have inherited what they deserve from Obama Senior?

The prime minister Raila Odinga will correctly perceive that for the first time ever a fellow Luo tribesman is running the United States of America.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.113 Aug 1, 2008].

[23] Obama and Terrorists William Ayers

Obama: Obama claims he only knows Terrorist William Ayers because they "happened" to be neighbors. Their kids attend the same school. Obama claims they know each other only and as much as anyone whose kids go to schools together.

The radical 1960s SDS Weatherman bomber Bill Ayers had criminal charges dismissed only because of prosecutorial misconduct. Today, Ayers likes to present himself as the "Distinguished Professor of Education" at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

In his 2001 book Fugitive Days, Ayers openly admits the role he played as a radical revolutionary leader. Ayers bombed the U.S. Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972 as part of his revolutionary antiwar activities.

The problem is Obama maintained the relationship with Ayers over many years because it was politically useful to Obama, especially as he first ran for political office from the impoverished, largely African-American South Side of Chicago.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.117-118 Aug 1, 2008].

[24] His "Blago-ville" Connections

Obama: He seeks to distance himself from the 1970s radical Bill Ayers, but the truth is after his college years, Obama developed an extensive collection of radical leftist friends, mentors, and political associates in "Blago-ville" formerly known as 'Chicago'.

Obama used many of these political friends to advance his career in "Blago-ville" Illinois politics, in which leftism is a virtue.

Today, however, on the national front, in his run for president, these same friends have become politically inconvenient and potentially destructive. The way Obama distanced himself from Ayers is typical of how he has distanced himself from others in his "Blago-ville" past.

Obama begins by denying that the association was meaningful, then argues that the views of the other person were never his own, and ends with a denunciation of the other person that somehow still does not cut the ties.

That President Obama has NOT severed ties with so many key people in his past should raise questions about the character for the serious voter.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.118-121 Aug 1, 2008].

[25] Obama & Radical Socialist Alinsky

Obama: He worked in same community as Saul Alinsky Saul Alinsky wrote in "Rules for Radicals" in 1971, "The Prince was written by Machiavelli for "the Haves on how to hold power."

"My book 'Rules for Radicals' is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."

"Blago-ville's" South Side was a focal point of the civil rights movement in 1968. The legacy of institutionalized South Side racism drew to Chicago a cadre of 'liberal community organizers, including Obama', who were committed to using the principles of change first developed in Chicago in the 1930s by Saul Alinsky.

Alinsky defined community organization tactics for several generations of America leftists, going back to his early efforts to organize Chicago's Back of the Yards meat-packing neighborhood in the 1930s.

Alinsky died in 1972, more than a decade before Obama moved to Chicago to learn his methods. Alinsky's goal was to set in motion a peaceful revolution, using the ballot box, not bombs or bullets, to wrench power from the hands of capitalist elites and business leaders currently in charge.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.123&128 Aug 1, 2008].

[26] Obama & Radical Socialist Alinsky

Obama: He implements Alinsky's ideas of radical change Saul Alinsky's impact on Obama is clear. We need look no further than Alinsky to find out where Obama got his mantra for"change."

Long before Obama came on the scene, Alinsky became famous for making "change" his credo. For some three decades before Obama was born, Alinsky had been defining the political meaning of "change" for those radicals he was calling forth in his classic 1971 book, Reveille for Radicals.

"Change," for Alinsky, invoked radical socialism and meant the redistribution of wealth and Obama means the same, but by hiding the reference he avoids having to be explicit about the radical goal behind the theme.

Alinsky advocated creating change through a set of carefully calculated power-politics tactics, where the end always justified the means.

Make no mistake about it: "change" was always Alinsky's code word for creating a socialist revolution, even if the methodology meant radicals would cut their hair, put on business suits, and run for political office.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.128-131 Aug 1, 2008].

[27] Obama & Radical Socialist Alinsky

Obama: He used community organizer skills as State Senator In 1995, when Obama decided to run for the Illinois state senate, a community organizing colleague said, "That's a switch."

"Oh, no," Obama said, "I'm going to use the same skills as a community organizer." He was stepping onto the political stage with even larger ambitions to organize communities.

In a 1995 interview, Obama said, "What if a politician were to see his job as that of an organizer, as part teacher and part advocate, one who educates voters about the real choices before them?

"As an elected public official, for instance, I could bring church and community leaders together easier than I could as a community organizer or lawyer."

When Obama says his experience "taught me a lot about listening to people as opposed to coming in with a premeditated agenda," he is reciting pure Alinsky dogma.

Listening, in the Alinsky lexicon, is just a tactic.

Obama listens because he has been taught the only way to intensify discontent is to use the language of the community itself.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.135 Aug 1, 2008].

[27] Obama's Relationship to Female Senator Palmer

Obama: Got his Senate seat by being handpicked as successor by retiring female State Senator. In 1995, Obama saw his opening to run for elected office when Illinois state senator Alice Palmer decided to run for Congress the following year, in November 1996.

Ms. Palmer went out of her way to name Obama as her handpicked successor. To get Obama's state senate race off to a good start, Palmer arranged a function for a few influential liberals in the district, at the home of Weather Underground activist Bill Ayers.

Ms. Palmer's goal was to introduce Obama to likely campaign supporters and contributors who would understand and support his radical-leftest-socialist-racial politics.

Obama's current press secretary has argued that Obama was an eight-year-old when Ayers was active in the Weather Underground and that "any attempt to connect Obama with events of almost 40 years ago is ridiculous."

Yet the record shows that connections between Obama and Ayers have actively continued since Obama launched his political career in their living room in 1995. Obama and Ayers served together on the Woods Fund board for three years, beginning in the year Obama joined it.

[28] Obama & Louis Farrakhan in Million-Man-March

Obama: The year 1995 was a banner one for Obama. He married Michelle, and bought a Hyde Park condo, and his first book, 'Dreams from My Father', was published, to modest sales but good reviews.

He was teaching constitutional law as a University of Chicago adjunct professor and was about to run for the state senate. In 1995, Obama also participated in Farrakhan's Million Man March, a fact he has omitted from his 2008 presidential campaign biography.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.145 Aug 1, 2008].

[29] Obama & convicted felon Tony Rezko, the "Boss Tweed of Blago-ville!"

Obama: Tony Rezko: large contributor & active member of Obama's campaigns. The pattern of political corruption surrounding convicted Chicago political fixer Tony Rezko and Barack Obama is almost too complicated to follow.

What can the Rezko scandal tell us about who Barack Obama truly is?

Rezko gave Obama his first political contribution, $2000 on July 13, 1995, when he learned Obama was going to run for Illinois state legislature. For a year Obama minimized his relationship with Rezko, telling reporters he only had dinner or lunch with Rezko once or twice a year.

However, when Chicago Sun-Times reporters finally confronted Obama in March 2008 for an extended interview in the newspaper offices, the senator changed his tune. "I've known him for 17 years," Obama finally admitted.

"There were stretches of time where I would see him once or twice a year. But, as I said, when he was involved in the campaign finance committees, then he was an active member." By saying Rezko was an "active member" of his campaigns, Obama acknowledged he relied upon Rezko to help him raise funds.

[30] Obama & the Original A.C.O.R.N.?

Obama: was hired in 1992, to head "Project Vote!" in Chicago. Undoubtedly, Project Vote was work Obama was qualified to do, given his community organizing experience and his law degree. Project Vote was a national voter registration drive aimed at increasing minority voter registrations.

In Chicago, Obama had his biggest impact registering African-American voters on Chicago's South Side. While he successfully directed Project Vote in Chicago, Obama certainly did not become wealthy doing it.

[31] Obama & convicted felon Tony Rezko, the "Boss Tweed of Blago-ville!"

Obama ally Tony Rezko was indicted for kickbacks from Gov. Blagojevich, and during the trial, the Chicago Sun-Times identified 15 building projects that Tony Rezko redeveloped while represented by the Chicago law firm during the time Obama was a lawyer working at the firm.

All the projects were financial disasters.

Rezko managed 30 projects in total, including 11 that were in Obama's state senate district. Foreclosures followed by abandoned properties are the legacy of the Rezko low-income-housing empire.

The Sun-Times exposed the fact that Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Rezko's successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens.

The development, Cottage View Terrace, opened in 2002, provided 97 apartments for low-income senior citizens. The letters appear to contradict statements from Obama that he never did any favors for Rezko.

Rezko was indicted in 2007 on federal charges that accuse him of demanding kickbacks from companies seeking state business under Gov. Blagojevich.

[32] Obama & convicted felon Tony Rezko, the "Boss Tweed of Blago-ville!"

Obama: Tony Rezko helped Obama buy home in prestigious neighborhood across the street from Tony Rezko's came on the market. This new home would be suitable for the family of a US senator. The doctor who owned the property wanted to sell the vacant lot & the house at the same time. The list price just for the home was $1.95 million, outside the reach of the Obama family.

Rezko came up with a "Blago-ville" solution.

His wife, Rita, bought the vacant lot at full price, permitting Obama and Michelle to negotiate buying the house for $1.65 million, a discount of $300,000 from the asking price. Rezko's wife closed on the vacant lot the same day the Obamas' closed on the house.

She paid $625,000 for the lot, the full asking price.

"Both actions would be clear violations of Senate ethics rules barring the granting or asking of favors," wrote the Wall Street Journal.

The Boston Globe reported that Obama had asked for Rezko's advice in negotiating the deal - after all, Rezko was experienced with real estate - and Obama toured the house with Rezko before making an offer.

[33] Obama & Black Radical Minister Jeremiah Wright

Obama was a 20-year member of Trinity United Church of Christ which is based on black-liberation theology - code for communism.

On March 1, 2008, in an interview on Fox News, Rev. Jeremiah Wright got into a heated argument, charging that the co-host knew nothing about black-liberation theology because he had not read the writings of black theologians.

Wright was insisting that the inflammatory remarks in his sermons at Trinity United Church of Christ derived from years of teaching that had coalesced into a comprehensive theology known as "black-liberation theology."

In other words, Wright was arguing that as off-the-wall as statements from his sermons might sound when taken out of context, those statements were consistent with the teachings of prominent black-liberation theologians.

Black-liberation theology is an inherently radical theology that owes its origins to radical black political thinkers, including Stokely Carmichael and Malcolm X.

Deciding to be baptized in Trinity United, Obama had to comprehend he was joining a church whose principles were based on the black-liberation theology Rev. Wright professes.

[34] Obama Practices Saul Alinsky's Radical Rules!

Obama thus moved to & attended church in the neighborhood he was organizing. The professional organizer who recruited Obama was known for using Saul Alinsky's technique of extensively interviewing pastors and active church members to identify salient community issues, concerned residents, and respected community leaders.

In explaining his success in organizing Chicago's Back of the Yards, Alinsky said, "the first thing I always do, is to move into the community as an observer, to talk to people and listen and learn their grievances and their attitudes."

After being hired, Obama followed Alinsky's rules by moving into the Hyde Park-Kenwood area he had been assigned to organize.

Why did Obama decide to join Rev. Wright's controversial Trinity Church?

Obama openly admits, in terms Alinsky would easily have understood, "I was drawn to the power of the African-American religious tradition to spur social change."

Obama was made to understand that he could not ignore the African-American church if were to succeed as a community organizer.

[35] Obama & Muslim/Christian Minister Jeremiah Wright:

Obama says segments of Wright sermons were "caricatures of the church". On May 31, 2008, Obama announced he was leaving Reverend Wright's Trinity Church.

Obama made it clear his decision was based primarily on considerations of political expediency: "We don't want to have to answer for everything that's stated in a church," Obama said, but specified, "I am not denouncing the church."

Obama implied that he was being treated unfairly in that the segments of sermons played in the media were "caricatures of the church," complaining that anyone would "accept those caricatures despite my insistence that's not what the church is about."

He also persisted in distancing himself from Wright, "Some of the statements the [Wright] made were indefensible and deeply offensive." Clearly, Obama hoped that by leaving the church, he would end the controversy.

At a minimum, he wanted to be able to wash his hands of any subsequent incidents. Yet, by not denouncing Wright and Trinity Church itself, Obama remains open to continuing criticism as further incidents develop.

[36] Obama & Radical Jeremiah Wright

Obama on Dr. MLK Jr.'s famous speech "I have a dream,"Obama decrees: "Just words?"

Just words? [Both Obama and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick] focused on the theme "Just Words," followed by a string of famous quotations that obviously were not just words, but statements of important political moments and causes.

Patrick gave a speech in 2006 answering the question "Just words?" with a string of famous phrases that included

"'We have nothing to fear but fear itself,' just words?

'Ask what you can do for your country.' Just words?

'I have a dream,' just words?"

Obviously these statements of FDR, JFK, & MLK were not "just words" with no political impact, but rather had defined political moments for a generation or more.

Obama's language almost identically matched the substance and structure of what Patrick had said in Massachusetts. Obama's phrasing was "Don't tell me words don't matter. 'I have a dream.' Just words?

'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.' Just words? 'We have nothing to fear but fear itself.' Just words? Just speeches?"

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.225-226 Aug 1, 2008].

[37] Obama & plagiarism

Obama borrowed "Just Words" speech from Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick. A major contributing cause of Obama's liberal borrowing of previously used political language is campaign manager David Axelrod, who has borrowed freely from client Deval Patrick.

Axelrod appears to have tried out much of Obama's 2008 campaign language in the Patrick gubernatorial campaign in 2006 in Massachusetts.

On Feb. 18, 2008, the Clinton campaign charged that a speech by Obama in Wisconsin included a passage nearly identical to one in a speech delivered two years earlier by Deval Patrick. The controversy was fueled by a video showing side-by-side segments from Patrick's and Obama's speeches, making the similarity between them obvious.

Particularly striking was how both candidates focused on the theme "Just Words," followed by a string of famous quotations that obviously were not just words, but statements of important political moments and causes.

Obama responded, "Deval and I do trade ideas all the time, and he's occasionally used lines of mine, & I used some words of his."

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.225-227 Aug 1, 2008].

[38] Obama & Deval Patrick

Obama : Don't take a chance on me; take a chance on your aspirations. That same day as the "Just Words" speech above, a second video clip was posted on showing Obama copying from yet another Patrick speech, nearly word for word, again without attribution to Patrick.

Patrick said, "I am not asking anybody to take a chance on me. I am asking you to take a chance on your own aspirations." Obama said: "I'm not asking you to take a chance on me. I'm also asking you to take a chance on your own aspirations."

Obama issued a non-denial denial: "Deval and I do trade ideas all the time, and you know, he's occasionally used lines of mine. I used some words of his."

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.226-227 Aug 1, 2008].

[39] Obama & Deval Patrick

Obama then stole his famous campaigning slogan "Yes, we can" slogan from Cesar Chavez 1960s UFW!

An example of Obama's borrowing is his use of the catchy "S¡, se puede," which translates into English as "Yes, we can." This slogan traces back to Cesar Chavez and his efforts to organize Hispanic farm workers in the United Farm Workers in the 1960s.

"S¡, se puede" more recently became a slogan widely used by the pro-illegal immigration forces in the May Day rallies launched in major cities across the United States over the past few years.

[40] Obama on Aborting Born-alive Failed Abortions

Obama has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child.

On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would "forbid abortions to take place."

Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, "then this would be an anti-abortion statute."

[41] Obama opposed bill preventing partial-birth abortion

Obama in 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. In the US Senate, Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell research.

He has voted against requiring minors who get out-of-state abortions to notify their parents.

The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gives Obama a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record in the Senate for 2005, 2006, and 2007.

[42] Obama Opposed bill Allowing Gun-Use in Home Invasions for Self-Protection of Family

Obama: Hale DeMar, a 52-year-old Wilmette resident, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor violations for shooting, in the shoulder and leg, a burglar who broke into his home not once, but twice. Cook County prosecutors dropped all charges against DeMar.

In March 2004, the Illinois Senate passed Senate Bill 2165, a law introduced in response to DeMar's case, with provisions designed to assert a right of citizens to protect themselves against home invasions, such that self-defense requirements would be viewed to take precedence over local ordinances against handgun possession.

The measure passed the Illinois Senate by a vote of 38-20. Barack Obama was one of the 20 state senators voting against the measure.

Governor Rod Blagojevich vetoed the bill. On Nov. 9, 2004, the Illinois Senate voted 40-18 to override Blagojevich's veto. Again, Obama acted against the bill.

On Nov. 17, the Illinois House voted overwhelmingly, 85-30, to override the governor's veto and Senate Bill 2165 became law.

[43] Obama Copies Ronald Reagan on Capital Gains

Obama: On September 18, 2007, when Obama laid out his tax fairness plan for the middle class, he proposed adjusting the capital gains rate "to something closer to--but no greater than--the rates Ronald Reagan set in 1986."

The problem is that the capital gains rate has dropped since the days of Ronald Reagan. Stated less rhetorically and more straightforwardly, Obama was proposing to RAISE the long-term capital gains tax from 15 percent to 28 percent, nearly doubling it.

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.244 Aug 1, 2008].

[44] Obama for National Health care

Obama: during the South Carolina debate, Obama described what has become the trademark of his proposal: an extension of the private health insurance system that would include everyone who wanted to purchase health insurance.

"Number one, I think we should have a national pool that people can buy into if they don't have health insurance," he said, "similar to the ones that most of us who are in Congress enjoy right now."

Obama made clear that his objections to lack of universal health care were based primarily on "fairness," just as were his objections to a low capital gains tax rate. "It doesn't matter to me that my bosses, the taxpayers, may not have health insurance that I enjoy," he continued. "And we can provide subsidies for those who can't afford the group rates that are available."

[45] Obama and Foreign Aid Increase

Obama: Global Poverty Act: spend 0.7% of GDP on foreign aid As The Democratic primaries were winding down in May 2008, Obama quietly steered his Global Poverty Act, known as S. 2433, through the Senate.

Obama likes to characterize S. 2433 as requiring "the president to develop and implement a comprehensive policy to cut extreme global poverty in half by 2015 through aid, trade debt relief, and coordination with the international community, businesses and NGOs (non-governmental organizations)."

Obama clearly hopes he will be in his second tern as president by then, so reduction of global poverty by half can be tracked back to his co-sponsorship of this visionary piece of legislation.

Critics on the right, who were anything but enthusiastic, sarcastically renamed the bill the "Global Poverty Tax." The legislation "would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of Gross Domestic Product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.

[46] Obama photographed without hand over heart during national anthem

Obama was in a photograph published during the Iowa Democratic primary that showed Obama standing onstage while the national anthem was being played. Surprisingly, Obama was the only one in the photo who did not have his right hand over his heart.

Behind Obama, also standing, were Bill Richardson and Hillary Clinton, both with their right hands over their hearts. A large American flag formed the backdrop.

A blog cited federal law, subtly making the point Obama lacked respect: "During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart."

Obama explained, "I was taught by my grandfather that you put your hand over your heart during the pledge, but during the Star Spangled Banner you sing!"

Obama and his supporters may think it is not important to wear a flag lapel pin or to hold his right hand over his heart while the national anthem is played, but try explaining that to veterans.

[47] Obama seeks World with no Nuclear Weapons

Obama: on Oct. 2, 2007, declared, "A New Beginning," announcing, "America seeks a world in which there are no nuclear weapons." Obama made clear he did not intend to pursue unilateral disarmament.

He promised to work with Russia "to take US & Russian ballistic missiles off hair-trigger alert." "We'll start by seeking a global ban on the production of fissile material for weapons." Obama stated we would set a goal to expand the US-Russian ban on intermediate-range missiles so the agreement is global

Obama argued, "We'll be in a better position to lead the world in enforcing the rules of the road if we firmly abide by those rules."

This is truly the crux of Obama's argument: because we do not demonstrate moral leadership, other nations have no choice but to proliferate nuclear weapons.

At the base of the argument, Obama is saying a world with nuclear weapons is our fault. "It's time to stop giving countries like Iran and North Korea an excuse," he said. "It's time for America to lead."

[Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.261-262 Aug 1, 2008].

[48] Obama Themes of "hope" and "change"

Obama uses lofty language about "hope" and "change." As we have seen under close analysis these cries have such extensive antecedents they appear borrowed. As we have seen, The "Audacity of Hope", the title of Obama's second book was first used by Reverend Wright as the title of a sermon.

"Change" is the battle cry championed by radical socialist organizer Saul Alinsky, who devoted a section of his book Rules for Radicals to the topic "The Ideology of Change."

Obama has borrowed phrases freely even from movies taking"bamboozled" from Spike Lee's movie about Malcolm X and the phrase "He is the One" from the Matrix movie series.

When we look closer at Obama's intellectual legacy, we find him telling us the writers who impressed him growing into intellectual maturity included Malcolm X and Frantz Fanon, both masters of black rage.

[49] Obama's radical views

Obama: Behind "hope & change" rhetoric lays

Behind the Obama "hope" and "change" rhetoric, we find the verbal mask has covered over the development of a liberal Democratic politician who, in truth, harbors radical views that are extreme even for most Democrats.

[50] Obama "Seething with black rage"

Obama's Rage racial rage is the the short summary of Obama's attitude by Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of controversial book "Obama Nation" accusing Barack Obama of seething with "black rage" and of being unfit for the U.S. presidency.
