With reasonable expectations that there will be additions to this entire list, I give to you today a list of some the people with whom Obama has associated through his life:
Health care adviser: Ezekiel Emmanuel— brother of Rahm Emanuel and proponent of the Complete Lives System, which puts values on lives based mostly by age, Emanuel bluntly admits that the cuts [in health care] will not be pain-free. "Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change," he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008).
Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, "as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). "A young person with a poor prognosis has had few life-years but lacks the potential to live a complete life. Considering prognosis forestalls the concern that disproportionately large amounts of resources will be directed to young people with poor prognosis."
Mark Lloyd, newly appointed Chief Diversity Officer of the Federal Communications Commission: In his 2006 book, "Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America," Lloyd wrote: "It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press.... This freedom is all too often an exaggeration.... At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies."
“Federal and regional broadcast operations and local stations should be funded at levels commensurate with or above those spending levels at which commercial operations are funded,” Lloyd wrote. “This funding should come from license fees charged to commercial broadcasters. Funding should not come from congressional appropriations. Sponsorship should be prohibited at all public broadcasters.” Along with this money, Lloyd would regulate much of the programming on these stations to make sure they focused on “diverse views” and government activities.
(In a completely unrelated fact, the FCC just approved the sale of another radio station — this one on Long Island — to ACORN.)
The Apollo Alliance, a special interest group, was launched, according to their website, "in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy to catalyze a clean energy revolution in America, a revolution in the way our country generates and uses energy so profound that it will touch literally every quarter of American life". This group was responsible for drafting the stimulus bill – the 86 billion dollars having to do with clean energy and green-collar jobs. Apollo New York is run by the Weather Underground founder, Jeff Jones. And who is Jeff Jones? Jeff Jones was a leading anti-war activist and terrorist group founder who spent time on the run from law enforcement agencies while his group carried out a series of bombings of U.S. government buildings.
Jeff Jones joined the Students
for a Democratic Society, or SDS, from which the Weathermen splintered in the fall of 1965. Two years later, he became the SDS's New York City regional director, a position in which he participated in nearly all of the group's major protests until 1969, including the 1968 Columbia University protests and the violent riots that same year at the Democratic National Convention. During his tenure he became a sworn enemy of the US and sided with the North Vietnamese Communists.
In 1969, Jeff Jones founded the Weathermen with terrorists Bill Ayers and Mark Rudd when the three signed an infamous statement of a Declaration of the State of War against the United States Government.
Jeff Jones was a main leader and orchestrator of what became known as the Days of Rage, a series of violent riots in Chicago organized by the Weathermen. The culmination of the riots came when he gave a signal for rowdy protestors to target a hotel that was the home of a local judge presiding over a trial of anti-war activists. He wrote the book Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism,
Barack Obama's friends and mentors:
Childhood mentor in Hawaii: Frank Marshall Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.
The Reverend Jeremiah Wright: a long-time friend and pastor of Obama's who famously said in sermons: blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God damn America." He preached "Black Liberation Theology", about which most Americans had no knowledge prior to his newsmaking sermons which blamed America for 9/11, saying that our "chickens have come home to roost." The overall emphasis of Black Liberation Theology is the black struggle for liberation from various forms of "white racism" and oppression. Perhaps Wright ought to admit that it was red-blooded conservative Americans who fought for the liberation of blacks from slavery many decades ago. The Klu Klux Klan, for instance, were made up of liberal Democrats.... And it was their own black kings from Africa who sold them into slavery. I believe it is past time to begin to make use of the education provided for all Americans as a way to excel in life, no matter the color of one's skin. Having visited Kenya and Tanzania, I believe it is time for the blacks in America to be thankful that their relatives suffered for them as slaves, for they are far better off here in America than they would be in Africa. Isn't it time to preach love and improvement instead of an old hatred of whites who were not yet born during all these tough times? I don't know about you, but I have never owned a slave. Barack referred to Wright as " like an old uncle who says things I don't always agree with. ..." Righto.
Bill Ayers: unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist bomber William Ayers who, along with his wife Bernardine Dohrn, was a 1960s leader of the homegrown terrorist group Weatherman, a Communist group which advocated the following:
- Kill all the rich people. ... Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents."
- Participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972
- Currently a professor of education at the University of Illinois
- "I don't regret setting bombs," Ayers is quoted as saying. "I feel we didn't do enough."
William Ayers is widely believed to be the one who actually wrote Barack Obama’s book Dreams From My Father, which would mean that the President is a plagerist.. Ayers was much more to Barack Obama than just ‘a man who lived in the neighborhood”.
Current in the news are some pretty strong arguments about the fact that Ayers was closer to Barack than he lets on, and probably actually wrote Obama's book Dreams From My Father, without being credited as being the ghost writer. This had the effect of presenting Obama as a brilliant writer and thinker. And this would make him the Plagerizer in Chief.
Saul Alinsky: pioneered "community organizing". Though no longer living, Barack Obama studied him and his "Rules For Radicals", some of which rules follow:
1. Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."
2. Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy." Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty
3. Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters
4. Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
5. Keep the pressure on. Never let up." Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new
6. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."
ACORN: the community organizing group for whom Obama worked and taught, proudly claiming his efforts there as a resume builder. During his campaign for President, Barack pledged to ACORN that if elected, he would have meetings with ACORN even prior to his Inauguration, "to help shape his administration's policy." With the current investigations and trials in 14 states for voter fraud, and recent videos of ACORN giving advice to a prostitute and her pimp in how to defraud the government, this connection becomes even more important. Though Obama has pontificated on Kanye West, the NCAA Basketball Tournament, and other insignificant issues, he has yet to personally say one word about his former employer and favorite organizing group. His administration is filled with old cronies from Chicago and ACORN, and they are working hard to subvert our country.
Once again, should we not be known for the company we keep? When will we Americans hold Barack Hussein Obama accountable for the company he keeps?
