Thank you for visiting. My thoughts & Feelings are my Own.

Here I will share my feelings about America and her Future.

Let it be known to all the World, I love all Humankind, however the poor actions of the few that take away the Freedom's of the many wear on my soul. I don't hate them I feel sad for their foolishness before God and humankind.

Those leaders who seek to 'Keep their Oaths of office' and those who seek only self glory, power, tyranny and the destruction of America as it was founded, hoping to turn it into a Dictatorship, Marxist or other state of Tyranny.

For a long while I was unsure of putting a blog together with my thoughts on this, however Truth must be shared, if not to Awake American's to their dangerous situation then to record the folly of the ways of the wicked who do exist in the leadership of our Nation, States, Counties, Towns. Sad that I must add this page.

"We often search for things in life, yet seldom do we find.

Those things in life that really matter, until we make the time." S.T.Huls

God Bless the Republic of America!

She Survived Hitler and wants to Warn America

December 22, 2012 - “What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences.

“I am a witness to history.

“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

No so.

Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unem- ployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were go- ing from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.

Austrians saluting

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teach- ing profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been re- quired to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”
And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

A pro-Hitler rally

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of hu- manistic philosophy.

“In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

Young Austrians

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.
“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.
“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately es- tablished child care centers.
“You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..
“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the med- ical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.
“ Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because peo- ple might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands.

“Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too

Austrian kids loyal to Hitler

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

“So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good man- ual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

“I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eye-witness account.

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world. “Don’t let freedom slip away.

“After America, there is no place to go.”

Gandalf ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay & thoughts on it

"Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage."

- Gandalf


thoughts,
Government politicians and leaders of all types believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I see it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary people that keep the darkness at bay.  Small acts of kindness, love, charity doing good unto others as you would have them done unto you.
Why the Tea Party, Christians, Oath-keepers, and Conservative Citizens of the Republic of America? Perhaps because I am afraid at times for our Future as a Nation and for a free  Civilization, and they give me courage to continue on, one day at a time, in the face of what may seem an impending doom of darkness upon our land.
There are lights twinkling in the shadows, these are the individual men and women who at times of darkness unite together to become a brighter light eventually becoming a bon fire of hope only to spread into a ragging unstoppable wild fire full of a hope for Freedom and for peace to be returned to these lands where it once flourished.
 In each and every one of us is a seed of light and truth, if we plant it and nourish it well with goodness and truth we will be able to share our light with others, if we choose to allow the spark to die in the winds, rains, storms of life then we allow our spark to be extinguished, and are left with only fear and cold darkness.
 Let us each nourish our spark with wisdom, so let our light shine upon a hill to guide all others from the shadows into the warmth of light. Your time in now, the choice is up to you. What will you do this day as you journey along your path will you share your light, or will you allow it to go out and if so would you dare blow out the sparks of those around you?

Hobby Lobby Defies Obama Administration with Civil Disobedience for Religious Liberty

Hobby Lobby Defies Obama Administration with Civil Disobedience for Religious Liberty

Hobby Lobby Defies Obama Administration with Civil Disobedience for Religious Liberty



 What that means is:

"Today Hobby Lobby announced that they will not comply with this mandate to become complicit in abortion, which the Greens believe ends an innocent human life. Given Hobby Lobby’s size (it has 572 stores employing more than 13,000 people), by violating the HHS Mandate, it will be subject to over $1.3 million in fines per day. That means over $40 million in fines in January alone. If their case takes another ten months to get before the Supreme Court—which would be the earliest it could get there under the normal order of business—the company would incur almost a half-billion dollars in fines." ...

“We must obey God rather than men!”—Acts 5:29.

Now that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has denied Hobby Lobby’s application for an emergency injunction protecting them from Obamacare’s HHS Mandate on abortion and birth control, Hobby Lobby has decided to defy the federal government to remain true to their religious beliefs, at enormous risk and financial cost.
Hobby Lobby is wholly owned and controlled by the Green family, who are evangelical Christians. The Greens are committed to running their business in accordance with their Christian faith, believing that God wants them to conduct their professional business in accordance with the family’s understanding of the Bible. Hobby Lobby’s mission statement includes, “Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company … consistent with Biblical principles.”
The HHS Mandate goes into effect for Hobby Lobby on Jan. 1, 2013. The Greens correctly understand that some of the drugs the HHS Mandate requires them to cover at no cost in their healthcare plans cause abortions.
Today Hobby Lobby announced that they will not comply with this mandate to become complicit in abortion, which the Greens believe ends an innocent human life. Given Hobby Lobby’s size (it has 572 stores employing more than 13,000 people), by violating the HHS Mandate, it will be subject to over $1.3 million in fines per day. That means over $40 million in fines in January alone. If their case takes another ten months to get before the Supreme Court—which would be the earliest it could get there under the normal order of business—the company would incur almost a half-billion dollars in fines. And then of course the Supreme Court would have to write an opinion in what would likely be a split decision with dissenters, which could easily take four or six months and include hundreds of millions of dollars in additional penalties.
This is civil disobedience, consistent with America’s highest traditions when moral issues are at stake. The Greens are a law-abiding family. They have no desire to defy their own government. But as the Founders launched the American Revolution because they believed the British government was violating their rights, the Greens believe that President Barack Obama and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are commanding the Greens to sin against God, and that no government has the lawful authority to do so.
The Christian tradition of defying government commands to do something wrong goes back to the very birth of Christianity. When the apostles were ordered not to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with anyone, the Book of Acts records: “Peter and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead—whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.’”
Eleven of the twelve apostles—including Peter—would lose their lives for the sake of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ; only the apostle John died of old age. They were determined to obey God’s will at all costs.
This issue of civil disobedience is never to be undertaken lightly. The Bible teaches Christians to submit to all legitimate governmental authority (e.g., Romans 13:1), and so a person can only disobey the government when there is no other way to obey God.
But here in America, the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land, and in its First Amendment it protects against a government establishment of an official religion and separately protects the free exercise of religion. On top of that, Congress passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) to specifically add an additional layer of protection against government actions that violate a person’s religious beliefs.
The HHS Mandate is a gross violation of the religious beliefs of the Green family. The issue before the courts here is whether the Greens religious-liberty rights include running their secular, for-profit business consistent with their religious beliefs. In other words, is religious liberty just what you do in church on a Sunday morning, or does it include what you do during the week at your job?
The Greens are now putting their fortunes on the line to do what they believe is right. The courts should side with them, affirming a broad scope of religious liberty under the Constitution and RFRA. And the Supreme Court should resolve this matter with dispatch in their favor.
Millions of Christians across the country feel exactly the same way as the Greens. The Obama administration has issued a statist command that is a declaration of war on people of faith who object to abortion, and civil disobedience could break out all over the country unless the courts set this matter right—and quickly.

Muslim Brotherhood & Hitler

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by a 22-year old Muslim named Hassan al-Banna, who admired Adolf Hitler's hatred of the Jews and persistently wrote to Hitler to express his admiration for Hitler and desire for collaboration with Hitler's Nazi Party.
Haj Amin al Husseini and Adolf HitlerWhen Hitler rose to power, his Nazis supported al-Banna, who was a school teacher, to grow Muslim Brotherhood into its ally in the Middle East; by 1938, membership of the Muslim Brotherhood topped 200,000.
During World War II, members of the Muslim Brotherhood spied for Hitler's Nazis in the Middle East and fought as Hitler's Nazi troops in two specially formed Muslim Waffen-SS Handschar Divisions (handschar is the German for scimitar, the curved saber used by the Muslim troops of the Ottoman empire).
SS Handschar DivisionAbove is Hitler with Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and a close ally of al-Banna, in Berlin, where he lived as Hitler's VIP guest from 1941 to 1945, before joining al-Banna in Egypt in 1946. Muslim Nazi troops of Waffen-SS Handschar Divisions are being reviewed by Haj Amin al-Husseini (right) and by the SS Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler (below).
Due to the number of Muslim volunteers, the Handschar Divisions were the largest of Hitler's 38 Waffen-SS divisions.
SS Handzar DivisionAfter World War II, the Muslim Brotherhood continued to grow, supported this time by the West, which saw it as a counterweight to the threat of Soviet-backed Communism in the Middle East. By the late 1940s, Muslim Brotherhood numbered 500,000 members.
While some of them built schools and medical clinics, other continued to engage in violence, including bombings, arsons and murders. In 1948, members of the Muslim Brotherhood assassinated the Egyptian Prime Minister Mahmoud Fahmi al-Nuqrashi and joined the invasion of the newly re-created nation of Israel.
Hamas SaluteThe Muslim Brotherhood's violent conflict with the Egyptian government, which also included the government's assassination of al-Hanna and two failed Muslim Brotherhood assassination attempts on the Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, eventually led to many of its leaders being jailed while others fled and set up branches abroad, mostly in the other Middle Eastern Arab nations but also in Europe, UK and USA.
god bless HitlerConcluding that it did not yet have the muscle to spread Islam by force, Muslim Brotherhood 'officially' renounced violence in the 1970s, and switched to more cunning strategies detailed in a secret manifesto: "The Project".
In 1979, the Western powers supported the Muslim Brotherhood to form the Mujahedeen army and fight the Soviet army in Afghanistan.
In 1987, Muslim Brotherhood in Israel created Hamas, whose members still use the Nazi salute (above) and read Hitler's Mein Kampf, which the Muslim Brotherhood titled My Jihad and translated into Arabic in the 1930s (Mein Kampf remains the #6 best-seller today in the Muslim world and a favorite among the members of the Muslim Brotherhood).
In 1989, the Muslim Brotherhood's Mujahedeen army pushed the Soviet army out of Afghanistan, and then split. One of the factions became Al Qaeda, led by a Muslim Brotherhood-schooled Saudi named Osama bin Laden.

CNBC Exec’s Children Murdered, 1 Day After CNBC Reports $43 Trillion Bankster Lawsuit


By JG Vibes

October 27, 2012
This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains.
The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.
Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters.
Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances.
It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later.
According to mainstream accounts the children’s nanny is responsible for the murders, allegedly stabbing both children.
However, those same mainstream news sources report the highly unlikely story that the nanny slit her own throat just after committing the homicides.
Police have released very little information and although a wider plot has not been officially implicated, it seems very possible that these murders are a show of force against the press organization for releasing such damning information about the most powerful people in the world.
Here is some more information about the lawsuit from the Wall Street Journal:
“In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP — on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws — has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) by the “Banksters” and their co-conspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the “bailout programs” by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other “bailout money” advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress.
Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the “Banksters” criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama’s campaign from these same “Banksters” to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the “Bankster” Defendants. “
Some of the alleged conspirators are Attorney General Holder, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster), Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary, Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup), Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor), Anita Dunn (a former “communications director” for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the “Banksters” themselves, and their affiliates and conduits.
It is expected that all news on this subject will be removed from CNBC, and that other news organizations will be discouraged from covering such information.
However, screen shots of the original CNBC article were taken to verify the authenticity of this story.
Assassination and brute intimidation are common strategies for the ruling class to use on people who may threaten their agenda.
This is the second situation this week in which a high level executive was the victim of a suspicious attack that seemed very much like an assassination.
The Intel Hub just reported that Nicholas Mockford, a 60 year old British executive for the oil company ExxonMobil was shot dead in front of his wife in an assassination-style killing in Brussels.
We will be keeping a close eye on both of these stories and provide more details as they become available.

It’s unfortunate that we must remember the facts.
Treason equals “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” OK, that’s in the U.S. Constitution.


Obama has done just that, before him Pelosi/Reid others. Obama stands by orders ‘stand down’ while Americans murdered on live video feed.
Those killed included U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Manage-ment Officer Sean Smith and U.S. Embassy security personnel Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Woods — Navy SEAL — asked for assistance, the general and admiral who refused the illegal orders of Obama to stand down and went to aid these men were relieved of duty, immediately.
Obama was complicit in their murders, refusing them aid that was immediately available, Woods died after laser marking the enemy and waiting for the C-130 overhead to assist.
The White House ordered them to do nothing but relay video by drone to them. So, Obama also has sent billions to the Egyptian Muslim brotherhood, a known terror group since the early 1930s who worked with the Nazis, Hamas, al-Qaida. He is sending them your dollars, tanks, F-16s, funding their terror organization. Meanwhile in America, he wants to attack and cut our military retirement, health care, paychecks, funds for keeping America’s military functional.
This is, by definition, treason. Sheriff Arpaio has proven fraudulent doc-uments Obama has put forth — Hawaiian birth record, selective service card. Obama, due to his father British/Kenyan never a USA citizen, never was qualified — natural born — by the law to be eligible. That’s a fact, ignored.
What has happened to America? Obama was schooled, trained in Marx-ism, communism, Islamism and anti-Americanism all his life, now promising to destroy, punish America.
He is doing it, people love it and vote for him, international votes and fund-ing proven, but ignored. His history hidden and protected by 100s of lawyers, media 98 percent complicit as well.
Fraud and treason, that is our White House — 226 workers there make more than 100K per year — even the dog walker. Obama acts as king with NDAA above the law.
People, do your own homework. Read the U.S. Constitution. Learn true history and be free. Avoid Obama’s new changed Communist history for America. Now we have union labor terrorists attacking, threatening blood, like the old Communists days. God bless the republic.

Halloween decorations carry haunting message of forced labor

julie-keith.JPG View full size Julie Keith contacted a human rights organization after finding a plea for help inside a package of Halloween decorations.  
The letter came in a box of Halloween decorations purchased at Kmart, but for a year Julie Keith never knew. It gathered dust in her storage, a haunting plea for help hidden among artificial skeletons, tombstones and spider webs. Keith, a 42-year-old vehicle donation manager at a southeast Portland Goodwill, at one point considered donating the unopened $29.99 Kmart graveyard kit. It was one of those accumulated items you never need and easily forget. But on a Sunday afternoon in October, Keith pulled the orange and black box from storage. She intended to decorate her home in Damascus for her daughter's fifth birthday, just days before Halloween.
She ripped open the box and threw aside the cellophane.
That's when Keith found it. Scribbled onto paper and folded into eighths, the letter was tucked between two Styrofoam headstones.
"Sir:
Letter.jpg View full size The letter describes conditions at a forced labor camp in China.  
"If you occasionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization. Thousands people here who are under the persicution of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank and remember you forever." The graveyard kit, the letter read, was made in unit 8, department 2 of the Masanjia Labor Camp in Shenyang, China.
Chinese characters broke up choppy English sentences.
"People who work here have to work 15 hours a day without Saturday, Sunday break and any holidays. Otherwise, they will suffer torturement, beat and rude remark. Nearly no payment (10 yuan/1 month)."
Ten yuan is equivalent to $1.61.
"People who work here, suffer punishment 1-3 years averagely, but without Court Sentence (unlaw punishment). Many of them are Falun Gong practitioners, who are totally innocent people only because they have different believe to CCPG. They often suffer more punishment than others."
The letter was not signed.
Shocked, Keith sat down as her mind reeled.
Wow, that's daring, she thought. She imagined the desperation the writer must have felt, the courage he or she must have mustered to slip the letter into that box. If caught, what would happen?
Like a message in a bottle, the letter traveled more than 5,000 miles over the Pacific Ocean. It could not be ignored.
***
TotallyGhoul.jpg View full size This package contained a letter folded into eighths and tucked between styrofoam headstones.  
Unsure of where to start, Keith turned to Facebook. "I found this in a box of Halloween decorations" she typed beneath a photo of the letter. She wanted to spread the message.
The Facebook post sparked a slew of responses. Her friends had heard of labor camp horrors. But a letter from one of those camps? Never.
"I'm sure that person feared for his/her life to include that letter in the products, but it was a chance they were obviously willing to take," one friend wrote. "We take our freedom for granted!"
"What's weird to me is someone is actually thinking about, and praying something comes of this ... every day of their life since they sent it out," another wrote. "Makes me sad this even happens"
Some friends offered help, others asked for updates.
The anonymous letter evoked skepticism, too. Written largely in English scrawl, it was almost too bold of an act to seem plausible. Still, U.S. authorities on China took note.
"We're in no position to confirm the veracity or origin of this," said Sophie Richardson, China director at Human Rights Watch. "I think it is fair to say the conditions described in the letter certainly conform to what we know about conditions in re-education through labor camps."
China's re-education through labor is a system of punishment that allows for detention without trial. Various reports allege followers of the banned spiritual group, Falun Gong, are sent to the reform camps – claims supported in the letter – but the facts are difficult to confirm.
Masanjia labor camp is located in the industrialized capital of the Liaoning Province in northeast China. A Google search of the camp yields pages of grim results.
"If this thing is the real deal, that's somebody saying please help me, please know about me, please react," Richardson said. "That's our job."
***
If truly created in a forced labor camp, the Halloween graveyard kit from Kmart's "Totally Ghoul" product line could bring a blow to the U.S. chain of discount stores.
Title 19, section 1307 of U.S. Code generally prohibits the importation of all items "mined, produced or manufactured" in any foreign country by convict labor, forced labor and/or indentured labor.
After the Oregonian informed the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement about the letter, ICE's Homeland Security Investigations began looking into the case, public affairs officer Andrew Munoz confirmed.
Sears Holdings Corporation, which operates Kmart, released a statement on the matter:
"Sears Holdings has a Global Compliance Program which helps to ensure that vendors and factories producing merchandise for our company adhere to specific Program Requirements, and all local laws pertaining to employment standards and workplace practices. Failure to comply with any of the Program Requirements, including the use of forced labor, may result in a loss of business or factory termination. We understand the seriousness of this allegation, and will continue to investigate."
Daniel Ruiz, section chief of the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center's commercial fraud unit, said it would be difficult to predict the length of an investigation like this, which would involve American and Chinese authorities. Investigative findings would be released, he said, only if the agency takes action.
***
Julie Keith now checks the label of everything she buys, down to the Gingerbread house she purchased for the holidays. Her friends, she said, do the same.
"If I really don't need it, I won't buy it if it's made in China," she said. "This has really made me more aware. I hope it would make a difference."


Harold Estes age 95 Pearl Harbor Survivor Letter to President Obama!






 
I think this Veteran deserves our time to read this letter to President Barack Obama
OH! Wait! And before the liberals say this is a fake, even your favorite "f
act checkers" Snopes has posted this to be true. Check it out...
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/haroldestes.asp
-------------------------------------------------------------

"Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:

” We’re no longer a Christian nation”
” America is arrogant”

– (Your wife even
announced to the world,” America is mean-spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our
war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue . You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes — with Conservative Republicans, Moderate Republicans, Conservative and The Tea Party (Official) at Pearl Harbor Oahu.

The Terrorists -- Bill and Bernadine
As part of her transition out of power, Alice Palmer introduced her successor, Barack Obama, to a few of the district's influential liberals at the home of left-wing terrorists,  William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn -- long-time friends of the Obamas.

As noted by David Horowitz:
    
On the morning of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, along with a million other readers of the New York Times including many who would never be able to read the paper again, I opened its pages to be confronted by a color photo showing a middle-aged couple holding hands and affecting a defiant look at the camera.  The article was headlined in an irony that could not have been more poignant, "No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives."  The couple pictured were Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, former leaders of the 1960s' Weather Underground, America's first terrorist cult.  One of their bombing targets, as it happened, was the Pentagon.
     
While Ayers and Dohrn, who, in July, 1969, traveled to Cuba and met with representatives of the North Vietnamese and Cuban governments, may be thought of in Hyde Park as local activists, they're better known nationally as two of the most notorious -- and unrepentant -- figures from the violent fringe of the 1960s anti-war movement.  These two domestic terrorists have written and spoken at length about their pasts -- their bombings and robberies -- and today he is an advocate for progressive education and a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago; she's an associate professor of law at Northwestern University.

William (Bill) Ayers went underground with several comrades after their co-conspirators' bomb accidentally exploded on March 6, 1970, destroying a Greenwich Village townhouse and killing three members of the Weather Underground (Ted Gold, Terry Robbins, and Diana Oughton, who was Ayers' girlfriend at the time).  He and his colleagues invented identities and traveled continuously.  They avoided the police and FBI, while bombing high-profile government buildings including; the United States Capitol, The Pentagon, and the Harry S. Truman Building housing the State Department.  Living underground, Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn raised two children, Zayd and Malik, (Muslim names) before turning themselves in in 1981, when most charges were dropped because of what Ayers described as "extreme governmental misconduct" during the long search for the fugitives.

Dohrn served seven months in a NYC federal jail in 1983 for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the Brinks robbery of 1981, in which two policemen and a security guard were killed.

Dohrn worked in a baby boutique in 1979 where stolen customer ID's were used to rent trucks used in the series of robberies culminating in the 1981 slaughter in which 9 kids lost their fathers, the youngest of which was six-months.

Because of the criminal convictions Dohrn, who received a law degree from the University of Chicago in 1967, was refused admission to the New York bar.

Nonetheless, she was hired as a legal clerk by Sidley and Austin, a major Chicago law firm, in their New York office in 1984.  Howard Trienens, then managing partner of the firm, recently told the Chicago Tribune that he arranged the hiring of Dohrn as a favor to his fellow Northwestern University trustee and classmate, Tom Ayers.  Tom Ayers' firm, Commonwealth Edison, has used Sidley as outside counsel for many years.  She later worked in their Chicago office when she and Bill Ayers moved back to Chicago in 1987.  She left Sidley in 1988.


 
Update: In 1989, Obama was a summer intern at Michelle Obama's law firm.  One of Michelle's co-workers was Bernadine Dohrn.  So the relationship between the Obamas and Ayers has spanned twenty years.
  
One of the best known contacts between Obama and Ayers was when the couple hosted a "meet and greet" for Obama at Ayers house in Hyde Park -– an upper middle class neighborhood on Chicago's south side, where Obama now lives as a neighbor of Louis Farrakhan.
 
"I can remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill Ayers' house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the senate and running for Congress," said Dr. Quentin Young, a prominent Chicago physician and advocate for single-payer health care, of the informal gathering at the home of Ayers and his wife, Dohrn. "[Palmer] identified [Obama] as her successor."

A Chicago-based blogger named Maria Warren -- whose writing suggested she was to the left of Obama -- recalled watching the candidate give a "standard, innocuous little talk" in 1995, in the Ayers' living room when Obama was running for the state Senate.

"They were launching him," Warren wrote, "introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread."

Ayers and Dohrn are simply the most visible of the far left supporters who propelled Barack Obama's early political career.  The woman who touted Obama at the Ayers meeting, Alice Palmer, was herself a far left activist who was into community organizing like Obama.

Wondering whether the three may have crossed paths is not speculation.  It is a fact that in 1989, Bernadine Dohrn and Michelle Obama were associates at the Chicago law firm of Sidley & Austin, when Obama joined the firm as a summer intern.

Barack also was essentially an employee of Bill Ayers for eight years, starting in  1995, the year the Chicago Annenberg Challenge was created to raise funds to help reform the Chicago public schools.  One of the architects of the Challenge was none other than Professor Bill Ayers.  Ayers co-wrote the initial grant proposal and proudly lists himself on his own website as the co-founder of the Challenge.

And who did William Ayers, co-creator of the Challenge, help select as the new director of the board for this program?  Why, Barack Obama, of course.  Obama was the first Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

Obama served on the board for eight years until the Challenge ended in 2003.  Bill Ayers was intimately involved in the Challenge over this same time period, raising and spending at least $110 million in an effort to bolster a "radical" (Ayers' word) reform program in the Chicago Public Schools from 1994 to 2001.

In November 1997, Ayers and Obama participated in a panel at the University of Chicago entitled "Should a child ever be called a 'super predator?'" to debate "the merits of the juvenile justice system."

In April 2002, Ayers, Dohrn, and Obama, then an Illinois State Senator, participated together at a conference entitled "Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?" sponsored by The Center for Public Intellectuals and the University of Illinois-Chicago.  Ayers and Obama were two of the six members of the "Intellectuals in Times of Crisis" panel.  Here is the agenda.

"I know they are friends," said Dr. Young of Obama and Ayers.

Ayers is the Board Chairman of the nonprofit Woods Fund of Chicago and Obama was a Board member.  Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website.

The Woods Fund focused on welfare reform, affordable housing, the quality of public schools, race and class disparities in the juvenile justice system, and tax policy as a tool in reducing poverty.  The Fund supported the concept of an expanding welfare state allocating ever-increasing amounts of money to the public school system, and the redistribution of wealth via taxes.

Obama always describes his relationship with Ayers as casual, but a close, working relationship spanning eight years is hardly casual -- especially an employer-employee relationship. 

Beyond that, it was Ayers who brought Obama to Chicago.

According to The Nation: "The Woods Fund, in many ways, is responsible for helping start Obama as an organizer and shaping his political identity.  In 1985 the foundation gave a $25,000 grant to the Developing Communities Project (aka the "DCP"), which hired Obama, at 24, as an organizer on Chicago's economically depressed South Side."

The Woods Fund was founded by the Woods family which owned the Illinois-based Sahara Coal Company, a major supplier of coal from its mines to major Illinois power companies. Commonwealth Edison, the giant Chicago-based electric power company was headed by Thomas Ayers, father of Bill Ayers.

The problem of Barack Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers will not go away.  Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn were terrorists for the notorious Weather Underground during the turbulent 1960s, turning fugitive when a bomb -- designed to kill army officers in New Jersey -- accidentally exploded in a New York townhouse.

Prior to that, Ayers and his cohorts succeeded in bombing the Pentagon.  Ayers and Dohrn remain unrepentant for their terrorist past.  Ayers was pictured in a 2001 article for Chicago magazine, stomping on an American flag, and told the New York Times just before 9/11 that the notion of the United States as a just and fair and decent place "makes me want to puke."

Although Obama actually launched his political career at an event at Ayers's and Dohrn's home, Obama has dismissed Ayers as just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," and "not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis."  For his part, Ayers refuses to discuss his relationship with Obama.

The phony Obama "Fight the Smears" website says that they "have encountered each other occasionally in public life or in the neighborhood."

Wrong.  The two men shared an office and Obama knew very well who he was associating with:


Obama knew who was paying him to serve on two boards,
Obama knew who he was directing thousands of dollars of donations to,
Obama knew whose living room he was in when he kicked off his political career,
Obama knew who was sitting with him on panels,
Obama knew who was on his floor at the University of Chicago,
Obama knew whose book he was writing a blurb on, etc., etc. etc.
     

A Personal Tale

    
 Ayers And Obama Agree On Major Issues


Amazing Ayers Audio Unearthed  (06:10)
    
A Limousine Revolutionary
Bill Ayers is a limousine revolutionary.  He was born into a wealthy Chicago family, raised in the leafy western Chicago suburbs, educated at the best schools, and benefited from connections and privilege wherever he turned.  His father, Thomas Ayers, was CEO and president of Commonwealth Edison, Chicago's electric utility company, and sat on several influential boards, including those of the Chicago Tribune, Northwestern University, and the Chicago Symphony.  In 1966, Mayor Richard J. Daley enlisted Thomas Ayers, a close friend, to head negotiations with Dr. Martin Luther King for a city-wide open housing agreement.  Tom Ayers was so successful at talking out of both sides of his mouth that King claimed victory while, according to local press accounts, Daley could claim he was able to "preserve the segregationist status quo."

After a couple of mediocre years in a suburban public high school, Bill Ayers transferred to Lake Forest Academy, an upscale prep school for boys on suburban Chicago's north shore.  (I attended the same school, before Ayers's arrival).  He then went on to the University of Michigan in 1963, where he liked to consider himself a jock because he roomed with the Wolverines' star running back.  He spent a summer working for Leo Burnett, Chicago's largest ad agency, a job arranged by his father.  But he soon joined protests and demonstrations.  He was arrested and spent 10 days in jail for trying to disrupt the Ann Arbor draft board.  Shortly thereafter he joined Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and was well on his way to becoming a Marxist and self-styled radical revolutionary.
Made For Each Other
Bernardine Dohrn seemed made for Ayers; one has to wonder if God doesn't find the perfect mate even for people who don't believe in Him.  A native of Milwaukee, Dohrn spent her first two years of college at Miami University of Ohio, but transferred to the University of Chicago after she was blackballed at the Delta Delta Delta sorority because she was half-Jewish.  She graduated from the University of Chicago law school.  But instead of taking the bar exam, she became an organizer for the National Lawyers Guild, a group identified by the FBI as a Communist front.  She also became active in SDS.

As she rose to prominence in SDS, Dohrn and Mark Rudd, leader of the SDS at Columbia, split off from SDS in 1969.  For them, SDS was too passive in its radicalism and opposition to the Vietnam War.  They believed a more militant group, one that would preach violent class hatred and worldwide revolution, was needed.  They called themselves the Weathermen after the Bob Dylan line, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."

Dohrn was unique in far-left circles: no wire-rims, no stringy hair, and no sackcloth.  Peter Collier and David Horowitz, in their 1989 book Destructive Generation, write that when Dohrn arrived in New York City in 1967, "with her tight miniskirt and knee-high Italian leather boots, she created an instant sensation among males in Movement circles."  Even SDS president Greg Calvert was astonished.  "I'll never forget the first time I saw Bernardine," he said.  "She was wearing an orange sweater and a purple skirt, and while everyone else had on Stop the War buttons, hers said Cunnilingus is Cool, Fellatio is Fun.  She had a boyfriend…but like others buoyed by the new air of sexual freedom, she had relationships with men who interested her."  J. Edgar Hoover later nicknamed her "La Pasionaria of the Lunatic Left."

Dohrn was always one of SDS's most radical and outspoken leaders.  When she ran for SDS "Interorganizational Secretary" in 1968, she was asked whether she was a socialist.  When she answered that she was a revolutionary communist, she won by a landslide.  In order to assure everybody of her bona fides, she announced that "what we're about is being crazy motherf---ers and scaring the s--t out of honky America."
1970 Bombing
A San Francisco police union has accused former domestic terrorist William Ayers, co-founder of the Weather Underground, and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, in a 1970 bombing that killed one sergeant, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The union, in a letter to a conservative organization lobbying for arrests in the case, accused Ayers and wife Bernardine Dohrn of bombing a city police station.

On Feb. 16, 1970, a bomb placed on a window ledge of Park Station killed Sgt. Brian McDonnell and injured eight other officers, the Chronicle reported.

The union said it had not been in contact with investigators nor did it have new evidence, but it cited Larry Grathwohl, who works with the conservative organization America’s Survival of Maryland and claims that he infiltrated Weather Underground as an FBI informant and heard Ayers confess, the Chronicle reported.

"There are irrefutable and compelling reasons to believe that Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn … are largely responsible for the bombing of Park Police Station," the Feb. 24 letter reads, according to the Chronicle.

In sworn testimony that goes back to the 1970s, former FBI informant Larry Grathwohl had implicated Ayers and Dohrn in the knowledge and/or planning of the bombing murder of San Francisco Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell.  Metal staples from the powerful bomb ripped through his body, killing him after several agonizing days in the hospital.

The new evidence in the case developed by Jamison adds to the solid information already available and raises the question of when, if ever, the bombers will be prosecuted. There are other witnesses to the bombing plot.

He reports, "Now, speaking publicly for the first time about the investigation, former FBI agents have told Village Voice Media the basis for their belief that the Weather Underground was behind McDonnell's murder. The agents have revealed that two credible eyewitnesses-both former left-wing radicals tied to the Weathermen-gave detailed statements to investigators in the 1970s alleging that Dohrn and Howard Machtinger, another member of the group, were personally involved in organizing the deadly attack. Both witnesses claimed to have participated in meetings where the bombing was planned, and one confessed to having cased the police station for the Weathermen prior to the explosion."

Jamison discloses that Dohrn, Machtinger, and Ayers were targets of a secret federal grand jury investigation in 2003 into McDonnell's killing. He quotes a left-wing lawyer as saying "it was clear they were the targets. They weren't called-other people were called about them. The Weather Underground was the target of Park Station [investigators]."

Jamison adds, "The case against the Weathermen is far from complete. Still, given the multiple witnesses tying the group's former members to the killing of a police officer, some investigators say they are troubled by the impunity with which Ayers and Dohrn have peddled a version of the past wiped clean of bloodshed."
Bill Ayers' Manifesto
Zombie Time has published an article about William Ayers' forgotten communist manifesto, "Prairie Fire."

A now long-forgotten book entitled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, which was written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground.  In this slim volume, which functioned as the Weather Underground's ideological manifesto, Ayers declares himself to be a communist, and announces that his group's bombing campaign was intended to start a violent revolution to overthrow the American government.

Read it here . . .
 In his book, which is extremely difficult to obtain, Ayers calls for socialism in America and stopping aid to Israel.  It's full title is, "Prairie Fire:  The politics of revolutionary anti-imperialism." (The page at the link is outstanding and shocking.)

In his manifesto, Ayers writes, "We are a guerilla organization.  We are communist men and women, underground in the United States for more than four years" and "We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society" and "Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside."

Ayers manifesto is dedicated to 100 radicals, among them is Sirhan Sirhan, the man who assassinated Robert Kennedy.

Why would Barack Obama associate so closely with a man who supports Robert F. Kennedy's murderer, seeing him as a mere "political prisoner".  That's a view so far out into fringe territory that it could give a Berkeley radical pause.

Obama supporters need to ask themselves how they can give that support to someone who spent 20 years in the company of a self-described communist, and an admirer of Sirhan Sirhan?

A blogger named Grizzly managed to find a copy of a book authored by "Billy" Ayers and Bernardine Dorhn titled "Prairie Fire".  He has included a copy of passages transcribed, verbatim, into a word doc.

He also just picked up a copy of a book published in 2006 titled "Sing a Battle Song".  The book reprints copies of Prairie Fire and two other Weather Underground "classics" with comments by Ayers and Dorhn.

While he have not gotten through much of "Sing a Battle Song", he was in interested to see whether the forwards written by Ayers and Dorhn expressed any regret or remorse for their activities in the sixties.  They did not.  As a matter of fact, aside from expressing remorse only on the "bombast" contained in the earlier books, they reiterate their communist beliefs and add a new hero of the revolution to their repertoire -- Rashid Khalidi.

Grizzly's extracts are here. . .

Broadway Baby
Bernardine Dohrn worked at a shop called Broadway Baby.
According to a 1982 New York Times report, Broadway Baby was implicated in an investigation of a series of violent armed robberies in New York -- netting more than $2 million over a two-year span -- committed by former Black Panthers and Weather Underground members in the early '80s.
Their aim?  Global revolution, naturally.  They needed cash, but the rich white parents weren't in a giving mood.  So their privileged offspring grabbed guns, pointed them at the faces of the working man and, sometimes, they pulled the trigger.
At Broadway Baby, customers often paid by check and used driver's licenses for identification.  On Dec. 28, 1979, information from two customer files was used to apply for two driver's licenses at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.  The fraudulent licenses were used to rent getaway cars for the gang.
The manager of Broadway Baby at that time?  Bernardine Dohrn.  Investigators at the time pointed their fingers at Dohrn, who is now a law professor without a license to practice law, at Northwestern University.
Dohrn and her husband, fellow academic William Ayers, turned themselves into authorities in 1980, but the rump of the Weather Underground committed its final violent act in 1981, a Brinks truck robbery that ended up with the deaths of two police officers and a security guard.
In 1982, Dohrn was brought before a federal grand jury investigating radical conspiracies linked to the New York robberies.  She refused to cooperate or to provide a signature sought by FBI handwriting analysts.  Dohrn was held in contempt of the grand jury and imprisoned for seven months.

The Brinks murders, the ongoing roundup of the killers and the ensuing trial were all over the New York Papers, radio and TV from 1981 to 1984.  Barack was living in New York that entire period, and Bill Ayers was attending Bank Street College which was about four blocks from Columbia.  Obama could not have escaped hearing about these events.

The question is -- was he involved?
Evil America
"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam.

Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto.  He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.'  He said, 'I realized...America was an evil... and that I was... living inside the belly of the beast...'"
Ayers Brings Obama To Chicago
The Chicago Period began in 1985, when some leftists were looking for someone who could recruit in a black neighborhood in the south side of Chicago and Obama applied for the position as a community organizer for the Developing Communities Project (DCP) of the Calumet Community Religious Conference (CCRC) in Chicago.  The "Project" was funded with a $25,000 grant by Bill Ayers' Woods Fund.  Here is an account from the Gamaliel Foundation, another community organizing group. 

Obama was 24 years old, unmarried, and according to his memoir, searching for a genuine African-American community.

Stories have varied wildly. Jerry Kellman, who hired him and is now a strong supporter, says it was "$10,000 a year and a $2,000 car allowance".  Obama himself has given different numbers; his memoir says $10,000 (as well as the car), in his "Wesleyan speech, he gave it as "$12,000 a year plus $2,000 for an old, beat-up car", and when he announced his candidacy for president, it was "a group of churches had offered me a job as a community organizer for $13,000 a year".

However, Ryan Lizza, then at The New Republic, reported that "Jean Rudd of the Woods Fund...had provided Kellman with his original $25,000 to hire Obama". . Ari Berman reported in The Nation that the "[Woods Fund] gave a $25,000 grant to the Developing Communities Project, which hired Obama CBS2 in Chicago ran a story with a document showing that Obama's planned 1987 salary was $25,000, a number that the Obama campaign confirmed whilst insisting that his original salary was $13,000.

So accounts, to put it mildly, vary.  This isn't just a minor discrepancy; Obama's entire campaign narrative begins with his tremendous self-sacrifice in taking on what at the time was a reasonable salary for a young college graduate.  Either Obama has lied about his starting salary or he has neglected to mention that his salary nearly doubled within 18 months.
The Mailman
According to Allen Hulton, the postman who delivered mail to the Ayers’ Glen Ellyn home at that time.
  
"Mrs. Ayers told me that her family had been helping out a brilliant young black man," Hulton said and whom he believes she said was from Kenya.  Hulton said that over the period of six to ten years that he delivered mail to the Ayers home he had numerous conversations with Mrs. Ayers, one conversation with Thomas Ayers and several brief encounters with Bernardine Dohrn who he said lived at the home for several months at one point in time.  He never met or saw Bill Ayers at the home.
 
Hulton explained that he knew Tim Ayers, the son of Tom and brother of Bill, when they were both students at Glenbard High School, which draws students from the towns of Glen Ellyn and Lombard, Illinois.  Over time the Ayers' parents became aware of the connection to their son Tim and that led to a friendlier relationship between Hulton and Tom and Mary Ayers.
 
"They tipped me generously at Christmastime," Hulton recalled.
 
One day Hulton found himself on the sidewalk outside the Ayers home at 199 N. Montclair Avenue near the corner of Revere Road just after he had delivered the mail. The house was “very nice and attractive and more expensive than some in Glen Ellyn because it was closer to downtown, but it did not stand out among the houses on that block.” He said the largest and most expensive homes were actually on Revere, around the corner from the Ayers’ home.
 
As Hulton was on the sidewalk walking away from the Ayers house a tall and thin young black man was coming up the same sidewalk towards the Ayers house.
 
Hulton recalls that Obama said hello and introduced himself and stopped to chat with him in front of the Ayers house. "I recall that his ears stuck out a little bit. He was more gaunt then than he appears now. His name was an unusual one and when I saw his photo during the campaign it brought back my memory of the event," Hulton said.
 
Mr. Obama explained that he had taken the train out from Chicago to visit the Ayers’ in order to thank them for their help with his "education." At this time, Mr. Obama had recently graduated from Columbia and would soon enter Harvard Law School. Hulton and Obama "spoke for a few minutes, first chatting about the Ayers family," Hulton said. Hulton said he did not learn whether the help Obama received from the Ayers’ was financial or in some other form.
  
Hulton agreed that it was an exceptional event to encounter a black man on his route and that Obama may have felt it prudent to introduce himself to the letter carrier before approaching the Ayers house. Hulton usually delivered mail on Montclair at mid-day, "sometimes as early as 11:30 in the morning or as late as 12:30 or 1:00 PM."

The Mailman's Story
During the Joe Arpio Cold Case Posse news conference, mention was made of a former federal employee who had sworn out a statement that at some point in the early 1980's he'd spoken with Bill Ayer's mother and she had stated that they were helping this young foreign student (Obama).
 
The mailman, Allen Hulton, has now been identified and has come forward with his story.

Woods Fund
Obama joined the board of the Woods Fund in 1993 and remained until 2002.  But Obama didn’t merely use the Woods Fund to help his fellow man -- he used it to further his career.

According to a November 29, 2007 report from the Chicago Sun-Times, "Sen. Barack Obama was on the board of a Chicago charity when his former boss, Allison S. Davis, came looking for money.  At the time, Davis was a developer represented by the law firm where Obama worked, as well as a small contributor to Obama’s political campaign funds.  He wanted the charity to help fund his plans to build housing for low-income Chicagoans."

When Davis approached the Woods Fund, he was building another apartment building with now convicted felon and Obama friend/fundraiser Tony Rezko.  The Chicago Sun-Times recounts: "Obama agreed.  He voted with other directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago to invest $1 million with Neighborhood Rejuvenation Partners L.P., a $17-million partnership that Davis still operates."

Also serving on the Woods Fund at the time was Palestinian activist and now professor at Columbia University Rashid Khalidi, whose wife headed the Arab American Action Network (AAAN).  The Woods Fund granted AAAN $40,000 in 2001 and $70,000 in 2002.  s Salon magazine wrote, this was "nepotism, Chicago style."

Khalidi, a former spokesman for Yasser Arafat, held a fundraiser for Obama in 2000 during his unsuccessful bid for Congress.  In 2003, during a dinner honoring Khalidi for becoming the Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies at Columbia, Obama warmly praised his friend, reminiscing about the many meals cooked for him by Khalidi’s wife Mona and of the discussions he and Khalidi held that were "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. … It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table," but around "this entire world."

Bill Ayers served on the Woods board for three years of Obama’s tenure and remained on the board after Obama departed.
Annenberg Challenge
The cloak of media invisibility is slowly beginning to lift from Barack Obama's most important administrative leadership experience, helming an expensive educational reform effort in Chicago that failed to produce any measurable academic gains, according to the project's own final report.

Add in the fact that former Weatherman and admitted terrorist William Ayers (whom Obama described in the Philadelphia debate as merely a "neighbor") was head of the operating arm of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), working with Obama on distributing scores of millions of dollars to grantees in the wards of the city, and you have a topic that the Obama campaign wishes to avoid at all costs.

In late 1993, Bill Ayers, now an associate professor of education at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus, organized a team to put together a grant proposal to secure nearly $50 million from the Annenberg Challenge.  The money was to be used by Ayers and company to bolster the radical Local School Councils reform project that Ayers and Obama had championed back in 1988 through the ABCs.

The grant application was successful and in early 1995 Barack Obama was named chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.  Ayers was named co-chair of the Challenge's operative and strategic body, the Chicago School Reform Collaborative.  Ayers and Obama work together for the next five years on raising an additional $60 million in matching money from local foundations and corporations and using the money to intervene in the governance of the Chicago public schools.

The Challenge through a multi-million dollar Leadership Development Initiative intervened in the School Council elections in the middle of what was known as the Chicago School Wars.  At the same time Chicago Mayor Richard Daley was pushing, successfully, to gut the power of the Councils.

The four plus years (1995-1999) Barack Obama spent as founding chairman of the board of the CAC represent his track record as reformer, as someone who reached out in a public-private collaboration and had the audacity to believe his effort would make things better.  At the time he became leader of this ambitious project to remake the public schools of Chicago, he was 33 years old and a third year associate at a small Chicago law firm, Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland.

The offices of CAC at 115 South Sangamon St. that Obama and Ayers shared for 5 years were in this building.



This was a big test for him, his chance to cut his teeth on bringing hope and change to the mostly minority inner city school children trapped in Chicago schools.  And he flopped big time, squandering lots of money and the time of many public employees in the process.

The "small schools" movement was heavily funded by CAC.  The program focused on individual schools built around specific political themes to push students to "confront issues of inequity, war, and violence."  The teacher education programs served as "sites of resistance" to an oppressive system.

The point, said Ayers in his "Teaching Toward Freedom," is to "teach against oppression," against America's history of evil and racism, thereby forcing social transformation.

The Final Technical Report of the Chicago Annenberg Research Project is available.  From its abstract:

Results suggest that among the schools it supported, the Challenge had little impact on school improvement and student outcomes, with no statistically significant differences between Annenberg and non-Annenberg schools in rates of achievement gain, classroom behavior, student self-efficacy, and social competence.  (It goes on to say that certain "Breakthrough Schools" receiving special funding and support did show some trends in improvement although it's not clear whether that included improvement in student performance.)

Obama has occupied the executive chair two times in his life, one directing the Law Review and the other chairing the CAC.  There's nothing to show for the first, since Obama wrote nothing, and the second remains a mystery.  All we really know is that $110 million (including over $60 million in public funds) was spent on a project that yielded no discernable result -- and how much of it might have been used to grease the wheels of a political career?
White House Scholar Funded Ayers Group
Aaron Klein says A scholar and charity head appointed to Obama's White House Fellowships Commission served as a point man in granting $49.2 million in startup capital to an education-reform project founded by Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers and chaired by Obama.

Documentation shows the White House fellow, Vartan Gregorian, was central in Ayers' recruitment of Obama to serve as the first chairman of the project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge -- a job in which Obama worked closely on a regular basis with Ayers.

Obama also later touted his job at the project as qualifying him to run for public office.

Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corp. charitable foundation, was appointed by Obama last year as a White House fellow.  Born in Tabriz, Iran, Gregorian served for eight years as president of the New York Public Library and was also president of Brown University.

In his role as Brown president, Gregorian served on the selection committee of the Annenberg Foundation, which funded Ayers' Chicago Annenberg Challenge with a $49.2 million, 2-to-1 matching challenge grant over five years.  Ayers was one of five founding members of the Challenge who wrote to the Annenberg Foundation for the initial funding.

Steve Diamond, a political-science and law professor and a blogger who has posted on Obama, previously posted a letter from Nov. 18, 1994, in which Gregorian, serving as the point man on Annenberg's selection committee, asked Ayers to "compose the governing board" of the Challenge's collaborative project with "people who reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of Chicago."

Ayers and other founding Challenge members then recruited Obama to serve as the project chairman.

Obama and Ayers used the project grant money to fund organizations run by radicals tied to Ayers, including Mike Klonsky, a former top communist activist who was a senior leader in the Students for a Democratic Society group, a major leftist student organization in the 1960s, from which the Weathermen terror group later splintered.

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 back pages 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 and employee of Bill Ayers.

Here is the "resume" of an American terrorist
Obama Writes A Review
Barack Obama did a review for Ayers’ 1997 book, "A Kind and Just Parent," writing, "A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair" -- here it is -- these two were as thick as thieves.
    

    
Distinguished Professor
Weather Underground leader turned-academic William Ayers is now so docile that it never really "bothered anyone in Chicago," that Sen. Barack Obama had any connection to him, wrote Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynn Sweet in the April 18 paper.  Along those same lines the Washington Post's Peter Slevin argued that the '60s radical was now "considered so mainstream" in Chicago "that [Mayor Richard] Daley issued a statement on Thursday praising him as a 'distinguished professor of education' and a 'valued member of the Chicago community.'"
  

The "Distinguished Professor's office door
  
But while he may have forsaken violence long ago, as his blog attests, Ayers's politics are far from mainstream, and go far beyond the standard Democratic arguments to withdraw from Iraq.  For example, Ayers wants to pay reparations in Iraq AND Afghanistan and practically withdraw the U.S. military from the entirety of the Middle East, even in countries that have longstanding security arrangements with the U.S.

Americans Must Rise Up Against War
    

Bill Ayers: "Americans must rise up against war"  (12:19)
    
Former "domestic terrorist" Bill Ayers says he hopes to organize the biggest ever anti-war movement in the country.  Ayers was also the source of Obama's biggest controversy during last year's presidential campaign.  Russia Today's Anastasia Churkina caught up with Ayers to find out the truth behind his relationship with Barack Obama.
Billy's Back
Unrepentant domestic terrorist, and self-described communist, William "Bill" Ayers, is seeking to create a peace movement, "I think that what we need is a peace movement, and I'm trying to build one."

Ayers want to create a "peace" movement to "save" Obama's posterior, saying, "With any luck, the peace movement, the justice movement can save his (Obama's) presidency. ... So to me the injunction is to get busy and build a movement," Ayers stated in an April 2009 interview with The Commentary Factory.com.

When asked how he plans to build his "peace movement," Ayers replied: "Well, I mean, how do you build a movement?  How do you build a civil rights movement or peace movement?  Look at history.  All kinds of ways, but what we need is to stop spending billions of dollars on war and we need to invest in being a nation among nations and giving up on the insanity of thinking we can conquer the world."

But he'll have to interrupt his recent activities.  Lately, Ayers has been involved with pro-Palestinian activism, and last month, Ayers and his wife, Weather Underground co-founder Bernardine Dohrn, were involved in provoking chaos on the streets of Egypt in an attempt to enter the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip to join in solidarity with the territory's population and leadership.

The protests were led by Jodie Evans, co-founder of Code Pink, a far-left activist organization formed in 2002 to protest America's war in Iraq.  The group previously met with Hamas and with leaders of the Taliban.  During the Iraq war, Evans delivered $600,000, in cash and supplies, to the Fallujah insurgents -- our enemy.  Evans, who has been described as "the face of the Democrats' future," was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama's presidential campaign.
    
One of Obama's greatest campaign lies was describing Bill Ayers as, just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood."

Ayers, not to be outdone,
lied that he knew Obama only slightly: "I think my relationship with Obama was probably like that of thousands of others in Chicago and, like millions and millions of others, I wished I knew him better."

Well, it is true that they were neighbors.  The rest is BS.

In fact, in 1985, Bill Ayers' Woods Fund
put up the money for Obama to move from New York to Chicago.  In 1985 the foundation gave a $25,000 grant to the Developing Communities Project (aka the "DCP"), which hired Obama, at 24, as an organizer on Chicago's economically depressed South Side."  Later, Obama joined the board of the Woods Fund in 1993 and remained until 2002.

In 1989, Obama was a summer intern at Michelle Obama's law firm
, Sidley & Austin.  Michelle was Barack's summer adviser.  One of Michelle's co-workers was Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers' terrorist wife.

In 1993, Barack Obama was named the the founding Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.  Bill Ayers organized the team to put together a grant proposal to secure nearly $50 million from the Annenberg Challenge.  The money was to be used by Ayers and company to bolster the radical Local School Councils reform project that Ayers and Obama had championed back in 1988 through the ABCs.  Ayers
personally selected Obama to serve as chairman, and Obama served on the board for eight years until the Challenge ended in 2003.  During this time, Obama and Ayers shared an office.

In 1995, a small group of people came to the communist, Bill Ayers' house, to learn that the communist, Alice Palmer, was stepping down from the state senate and running for Congress.  Said the communist, Dr. Quentin Young, a prominent Chicago physician and advocate for single-payer health care, "[Palmer] identified [Obama] as her successor."

And, of course, Obama and Ayers both hung out in the faculty lounge at the University of Chicago.

When Obama was unable to deliver a manuscript of "Dreams..." to Random House, he turned to Bill Ayers to help him finish what was to become a work of fiction, supposedly on the advice of wife, Michelle.  Thanks to the help he received from the skilled Ayers, Obama was able to submit a manuscript to his editors.

Obama lied to cover up the 20-year plus relationship, and his long-time friend and associate Bill Ayers lied right along with him -- remember, both these guys strongly believe that the end does justify the means.

And, there are those that believe Obama first met Ayers in 1981-1982, while Obama was at Columbia College and Ayers was 371 yards down the street at Bank Street College, where he was working towards an M.A. in Early Childhood Education.
Surprise!  Surprise!
Aaron Klein says the group behind the Gaza flotilla that engaged in deadly clashes with Israeli commandos today counts among its top supporters the friends and associates of Barack Obama, namely the founders of the Weather Underground terrorist organization, William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Jodie Evans, the leader of the radical activist organization Code Pink.

Earlier today, Israeli navy commandos raided the six-ship flotilla, encountering heavy resistance and live fire from the activists. Several activists were killed and dozens of others were reportedly injured, as were several of the Israeli commandos.

The flotilla was organized by the Free Gaza Movement, a coalition of leftist human rights activists and pro-Palestinian groups engaged in attempts to break a blockade imposed by Israel on the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

Ayers, Dohrn and Evans' Code Pink have led several recent Free Gaza Movement initiatives, including attempted marches into the Gaza Strip. Dorhn was in the Middle East just last month on behalf of the movement.  Ayers and Dohrn were close associates for years with Obama, while Evans was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama's presidential campaign.

In January, Ayers, Dohrn and Evans were involved in provoking chaos on the streets of Egypt in an attempt to enter Gaza with the Free Gaza Movement to join in solidarity with the territory's population and leadership.

The three helped to stir riots after the Egyptian government refused to allow a large number of protesters to enter neighboring Gaza.  Eventually, the protesters accepted an Egyptian offer of allowing about 100 marchers into Gaza.  Once in the territory, those marchers were reportedly met on the Gaza side by Hamas' former Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

At the time of the march, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., wrote a letter in support of a "humanitarian delegation from Massachusetts" to Gaza.  Members of Ayers', Dohrn and Evans' group documented on their blogs how Kerry's letter was used at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo while attempting to pressure Egypt to let their group into Gaza.

Images of the letter were also posted on the Electronic Intifada website run by Ali Abunimah, who was with Evans' group in Egypt and who spoke at pro-Palestinian events in the 1990s alongside Obama.  In one such event, a 1999 fundraiser for Palestinian "refugees," Abunimah introduced Obama on stage.

Kerry's office previously met with Code Pink members. Sarah Roche-Mahdi of Code Pink also is a member of the United for Peace and Justice Palestine Task Force, which met with Kerry's staffers.

Kerry last year became the most senior U.S. politician to visit the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, although at the time he did not meet with Hamas leaders.

Dohrn later wrote on a blog that she was briefly detained at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo following the January protests there by her group: "Bill and I went to the American Embassy at 10 a.m. and asked to see the ambassador.  We were ushered into a holding pen a block away from the embassy building where we joined 35 people already there, surrounded by Egyptian soldiers," she wrote.

Bernardine Dohrn Exposes The "Real Terrorists"
Former Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Weather Underground leader Bernardine Dohrn speaks to NewsClick India, in November 2010.  During the interview, Dohrn describes who the "real terrorist are -- you.
    
    
Barack Obama began his political career in this woman's living room.

One of the best known contacts between Obama, Dohrn and hubby Bill Ayers was when the couple hosted a "meet and greet" for Obama at Ayers' house in Hyde Park -– an upper middle class neighborhood on Chicago's south side, where Obama now lives as a neighbor of Louis Farrakhan.

"I can remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill Ayers' house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the senate and running for Congress," said Dr. Quentin Young, a prominent Chicago physician, socialist and advocate for single-payer health care, of the informal gathering at the home of Ayers and his wife, Dohrn. "[Palmer] identified [Obama] as her successor."

A Chicago-based blogger named Maria Warren -- whose writing suggested she was to the left of Obama -- recalled watching the candidate give a "standard, innocuous little talk" in 1995, in the Ayers' living room when Obama was running for the state Senate.

"They were launching him," Warren wrote, "introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread."

Ayers and Dohrn are simply the most visible of the far left supporters who propelled Barack Obama's early political career.  The woman who touted Obama at the Ayers meeting, Alice Palmer, herself a communist, was into community organizing like Obama.

Dohrn served seven months in a NYC federal jail in 1983 for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the Brinks robbery of 1981, in which two policemen and a security guard were killed.
    
    
In 1979, Dohrn worked in a baby boutique, Broadway Baby, where stolen customer ID's were used to rent trucks used in the series of robberies culminating in the 1981 slaughter in which 9 kids lost their fathers, the youngest of which was six-months.

Because of her criminal convictions, Dohrn, who received a law degree from the University of Chicago in 1967, was refused admission to the New York bar.

Nonetheless, she was hired as a legal clerk by Sidley and Austin, a major Chicago law firm, in their New York office in 1984.  Howard Trienens, then managing partner of the firm, recently told the Chicago Tribune that he arranged the hiring of Dohrn as a favor to his fellow Northwestern University trustee and classmate, Tom Ayers, Bill's father.  Tom Ayers' firm, Commonwealth Edison, has used Sidley as outside counsel for many years.  She later worked in their Chicago office when she and Bill Ayers moved back to Chicago in 1987.

In 1989, Obama was a summer intern at the corporate law firm Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago where he met Michelle Robinson, his summer adviser.  Michelle's friend and fellow staffer was Bernadine Dohrn.  The relationship between the Obamas and the  Ayers is close and has spanned twenty years.

That's a tight little clique in Chicago.
They're All In This Together
Asked during the 2008 presidential campaign about his relationship with the left-wing radical Bill Ayers, Barack Obama replied that Ayers was just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood."  He implied that to even bring that questionable relationship out of the shadows was a mean-spirited, guilt-by-association political tactic.  Ayers, Obama went on, had done something deplorable "forty years ago when I was six or seven years old."

Otherwise, Obama insisted, Ayers was a paragon of virtue: a respectable fixture in mainstream Chicago, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, on a foundation board focused on education that included "Republicans, bankers, lawyers."  Ayers had even worked for, and was a good friend of, Mayor Richard M. Daley.  The Obama campaign at once launched a crusade to distance Obama from Ayers.  It went so far as to actually defend the man who had implicated himself in terror bombings in his own 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days.

In fact, Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, were radical Marxist revolutionaries in the Vietnam War era.  They were founders of the Weather Underground, a violent terrorist arm of Students for a Democratic Society.  Both were eventually indicted in federal court, and Dohrn by the State of Illinois.  Rather than face a trial they jumped bail and disappeared into the underground in 1970.  After they resurfaced 11 years later, both were admitted into the halls of academia.  Ayers became a Distinguished Professor of Education and a Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois-Chicago.  Incredibly, Dohrn became a law professor at Northwestern.

The American Spectator has developed information that demonstrates, without any doubt, that Ayers and Dohrn have spent a lifetime advocating and practicing the strategies and tactics of Marxism.  That includes the violent overthrow of the United States government.  It also involves treasonous cooperation with revolutionary Communist governments in China, North Vietnam, and Cuba during the 1960s and '70s and, until the fall of the Eastern Bloc, governments in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.  But unlike many of their compatriots from those days of violence and turmoil, Ayers and Dohrn are completely unrepentant about their past activities.  To this day, they continue to support destruction of the American free enterprise system and its replacement with a Marxist utopia.

What, then, is the relationship between these two hard-core leftist revolutionaries and Barack Obama, and why is it important?

Still Terrorizing
Jim Hoft says that on October 20th, 2011 the Obama-endorsed Occupy Chicago activists invited unrepentant domestic terrorist turned University of Illinois professor, Bill Ayers, to lead a "teach-in" on the virtues of confrontational tactics.  The teaching session was dubbed "non-violent disobedience" in the anti-capitalist revolution.

Bill Ayers told the young leftists about how he met with the North Vietnamese to discuss fomenting revolution in America.  The meeting was held on the street in downtown Chicago.  The young activists lapped it up.

The video was released tonight by the EAG Foundation:
       
    
So, who else noticed that the local news cameraman shook Ayers’s hand at the beginning of the clip?
"Today I'm Going To End Capitalism"
At Occupy Union Square, March 30, 2012, Bill Ayers said, "I get up every morning and think...today I'm going to end capitalism."
