Obama Campaign Sanctioned “Zionist Thought Police” Posting

June 30, 2008

Obama campaign sanctioned blog entry that compares the “all-powerful Jewish lobby” to Hitler and Mussolini

It is now a matter of proven record that the Obama campaign exercises editorial control over my.barackobama.com, and is therefore responsible for its content. The Obama campaign sanctioned (tolerated) the following material at my.barackobama.com until an uproar on external blogs like this one compelled its deletion.

Tony Wicher’s “My Favorite Antisemite” at the Official Website of Barack Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign attacks the “Zionist Thought Police” and then quotes Desmond Tutu, who suggests that the “powerful Jewish Lobby” will fall like Hitler, Mussolini, Idi Amin, and other dictators.

Wesley Clark’s belittling of John McCain’s service record: SICKENING

June 30, 2008

Sent to http://securingamerica.com/feedback

Dear General Clark,

I am copying you on this piece, which I am posting to several blogs to which I write, because I don’t need to say behind someone’s back what I won’t say to his face. Furthermore, I added the word “sickening” in the subject line for those blogs. Per “Clark hits McCain’s military credentials” at http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20080629/pl_politico/11425, you said

“I certainly honor his service as a prisoner of war. He was a hero to me and to hundreds of thousands and millions of others in the armed forces, as a prisoner of war,” he added that these experiences in no way qualify McCain to be president in his view:

“He has been a voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee. And he has traveled all over the world. But he hasn’t held executive responsibility. That large squadron in the Navy that he commanded — that wasn’t a wartime squadron,” Clark said.

“I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.”

I read that you were wounded in action during the Vietnam War, so you doubtlessly appreciate far better than I how easy it is to get unlucky in combat. You and your fellow veteran both had bad luck in Vietnam, and McCain’s luck happened to be somewhat worse than yours. Suppose the luck had gone a little differently: McCain was shot down and injured but rescued by American forces while the enemy wounded you seriously enough to discharge you from the service as a decorated but disabled junior officer. Instead of being put on career hold while he was tortured by the enemy, John McCain might now be a retired admiral like his father and grandfather while you were a relatively anonymous white collar professional. I am quite frankly uncomfortable in writing a letter of this nature to a genuine hero, but you ought to think about the phrase “There but for the grace of God go I” before you use a fellow veteran’s (and hero’s) bad luck to belittle his service record for pure political gain (whether on your behalf or another’s).

I will conclude by adding that the individual–I won’t call him a man–whom you are promoting was, per his own book “Dreams From My Father,” smoking pot and embracing Black Nationalism at about the same age at which John McCain got into that fighter plane, joined you in putting his life on the line for our country, and got shot down and tortured for his efforts.

Obama Campaign Site: “These Jews are Corrupting U.S. Politics”

June 29, 2008

Although My.Barackobama.com carries the disclaimer, “Content on blogs in My.BarackObama represents the opinions of community members and in no way should be interpreted as endorsed or approved by the campaign,” it has been established that the Obama campaign exercises editorial control over the content. The moderators have, in fact, proven themselves capable of finding and removing, within 36 hours, material that is critical of Obama. “Exercise of editorial control” does in fact mean that the Obama campaign at least approves (tolerates, sanctions) the material it allows to stand, although it did not “endorse” it. The following piece was removed, not by the Obama campaign’s initiative, but only after it was re-posted on numerous other blogs as an example of the kind of material that permeates my.barackobama.com. In addition, the account of the person who posted it is still active as of June 29, 2008; this was apparently not sufficiently egregious to merit termination of his account.

Obama Campaign Sanctioned Anti-Semitic and Other Hate Speech

June 29, 2008

Obama Campaign Responsible for Anti-Semitism, Racism, and Misogyny at my.barackobama.com

Every page at my.barackobama.com carries the disclaimer, “Content on blogs in My.BarackObama represents the opinions of community members and in no way should be interpreted as endorsed or approved by the campaign.” Exercise of editorial control, however, makes the owner of an Internet discussion forum responsible for the content. It is now a matter of proven record that my.barackobama.com has exercised such control and is therefore responsible for sanctioning (tolerating) hate speech against Jews, pro-Clinton African-Americans, and even women (noting that numerous postings called Clinton a “bitch,” with one adding that Clinton’s candidacy shows women are not fit to hold public office).

Noting that my.barackobama.com claims to welcome open discussion of campaign issues, we created our own blog with factual material from “Dreams From My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope” (with page numbers, unlike the urban legends that have been circulating), the positive reaction of Obama’s church to Michael Pfleger’s racist tirade against Hillary Clinton, and Obama’s endorsement and promotion of Al Sharpton.

We received, in fairly quick succession, the following E-mails from a site administrator. (We have changed @ in the sender’s address to “at” to prevent harvesting by spam software). It may be noted that Emily does not follow the first basic rule of any recognizable disciplinary process, which is to cite exactly what the person did and also the specific rule the action violated. This is because she is unable to do so, and her obvious motive is to remove hostile material from my.barackobama.com. The Obama campaign, of course, has every right to do so but this “exercise of editorial control” makes it 100 percent accountable for what it chooses to let stand. (more…)

Obama’s Web Site Blows Disclaimer, Now Responsible for All Hate Speech

June 28, 2008

“Exercise of editorial control” makes Obama 100 percent responsible for his site’s hate speech against Jews, pro-Clinton Black people, and seniors

We created our own blog at my.barackobama.com, which carries the following disclaimer: “Content on blogs in My.BarackObama represents the opinions of community members and in no way should be interpreted as endorsed or approved by the campaign.” By deleting our blog and disabling our account, the Obama campaign just blew its disclaimer and can now be held 100 percent responsible for the anti-Semitic, racist, misogynist, and ageist hate speech it allowed to stand (in some cases for more than a year). “Exercise of editorial control” is the EXACT issue that forced MoveOn.org to disable its prized Action Forum in 2006, and almost resulted in the organization’s total destruction.

First, it is necessary to understand the moral (and in some cases legal) meaning of “exercise of editorial control.”

The general rule regarding vicarious liability for the publication of defamatory material is that “publishers” are strictly liable for defamatory content in material they publish; mere “distributors,” on the other hand, cannot be liable for defamatory content unless they “knew or had reason to know” of that content. Thus, if defamatory material appears in one of my columns, for example, the American Lawyer will be held liable, on the grounds that its exercise of editorial control gives it both the opportunity to screen material prior to distribution and leads readers to conclude that it stands behind whatever it does choose to publish. …

So when Stratton moved for summary judgment on the question of Prodigy’s liability, the question before Judge Stuart Ain of the New York State Supreme Court was: does Prodigy more closely resemble a bookseller, in which case Stratton’s claim against it must be dismissed, or a newspaper?

The latter, Judge Ain declared: Prodigy “exercise[d] sufficient editorial control over its computer bulletin boards to render it a publisher with the same responsibilities as a newspaper.”

We have just established that the Obama campaign exercised editorial control over its computer bulletin boards, thus making Obama the proud owner of material like “Zionist Thought Police,” “Jewish Lobby,” “House N*****s [for Clinton],” and similar hate speech. (more…)

Bush Stood with U.S. Muslims, Obama Throws them Under the Bus

June 26, 2008

Q: What is the difference between George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama?
A: Bush stood with Muslim-Americans against irrational prejudice after 9/11

    Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.Barack Obama, “The Audacity of Hope,” page 261 (paperback version)

This is what Barack Obama said, but it is what George W. Bush did.

Barack Obama condemned, and rightly so, the United States’ behavior toward Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor, and he expressed concern that Muslim-Americans might suffer a similar backlash because of 9/11. He then promised in writing that he would stand with them “should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” This sounds a lot like what George Bush did within a week of 9/11. From the New York Post,

    By CHARLES HURT Bureau ChiefJune 28, 2007

    WASHINGTON – President Bush visited a mosque yesterday, removed his shoes in respect, and challenged Muslim clerics to more aggressively denounce terrorism.

    …Bush’s visit to the Muslim center on Embassy Row was the third of his presidency. His first visit came six days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, when he visited the mosque to denounce prejudice against Muslim Americans.

Now let’s compare what Barack Obama did to what he said. As usual, there is a huge difference.

    Muslim Voters Detect a Snub From ObamaAs Senator Barack Obama courted voters in Iowa last December, Representative Keith Ellison, the country’s first Muslim congressman, stepped forward eagerly to help.

    Mr. Ellison believed that Mr. Obama’s message of unity resonated deeply with American Muslims. He volunteered to speak on Mr. Obama’s behalf at a mosque in Cedar Rapids, one of the nation’s oldest Muslim enclaves. But before the rally could take place, aides to Mr. Obama asked Mr. Ellison to cancel the trip because it might stir controversy. Another aide appeared at Mr. Ellison’s Washington office to explain.

    “I will never forget the quote,” Mr. Ellison said, leaning forward in his chair as he recalled the aide’s words. “He said, ‘We have a very tightly wrapped message.’ ”

    While the senator has visited churches and synagogues, he has yet to appear at a single mosque.

George W. Bush made a point of appearing with Muslim-Americans within a week of 9/11 but Obama, despite what he wrote in The Audacity of Hope, refuses to visit a mosque or appear with Muslim-Americans six and a half years later. This is because Obama is a fraud, and a coward who won’t stand behind his words. Furthermore,

    Muslim Barack Obama fans told to hide from television cameras
    By Tim Shipman in Washington
    Last Updated: 2:51AM BST 19/06/2008…The two women in headscarves were asked not to sit in view of cameras at a rally in Detroit on Monday, where Al Gore endorsed Mr Obama.

    …Miss Aref’s friend Ali Koussan, a law student, said that a volunteer “explained to me that because of the political climate and what’s going on in the world … it’s not good for her to be seen on TV or associated with Obama.”

    A second woman was told to take off her headscarf if she wanted to sit in the special seats.

John McCain’s detractors say that his Presidency would be George Bush’s third term. If this is the alternative to an individual who treats an American minority the way white candidates once shunned African-Americans, we don’t have a problem with that.

Obama’s Presidential Seal Not Illegal, Just Dishonest and Unethical

June 23, 2008

The fact that something is technically legal does not make it ethical, honest, or right. Barack Obama’s use of a portion of the Presidential Seal in his campaign underscores his total lack of character, ethics, and integrity but, as he did not use the complete seal, he did not actually break the law. (Disclaimer: we are not qualified to give formal legal advice.) “What he did was dishonest and unethical but admittedly legal” is, however, very faint praise for someone who wants Americans to trust him with enormous authority and control of nuclear weapons. It is in fact a Federal crime to use the Seal of the President to “convey a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States.”

    § 713. Use of likenesses of the great seal of the United States, the seals of the President and Vice President, the seal of the United States Senate, the seal of the United States House of Representatives, and the seal of the United States Congress (a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

Obama: Proven Coward and Liar (Throws Muslims Under the Bus)

June 19, 2008

“That’s not a man–take it away.”
Sean Bean as Richard Sharpe, with regard to Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill

Someone who runs or hides from an obligation instead of standing behind his principles is a coward. Someone who says one thing and then does the opposite is a liar. Barack Obama’s recent treatment of Muslim-American voters, in conjunction with his own broken promise from The Audacity of Hope, proves him a coward and a liar. (more…)

Oil Price Manipulation to Help Obama?

June 13, 2008

Recent news articles suggest that a large, and possibly dominant, element in the surge in crude oil prices consists of speculation as opposed to actual demand versus supply. While demand is indeed rising, as driven by the growing Chinese and Indian economies, this does not explain the recent doubling of crude prices. Noting that poor economic conditions usually help the challenger party against the incumbent party in an election, and that many foreign countries want Barack Obama to be elected, this leads to a frightening possibility:

Are foreign governments and/or other entities manipulating oil prices to deliberately throw the U.S. economy into a recession to get people to vote for Obama?

Oil Prices Driven by Speculation and not Demand: Italy

OSAKA, Japan (Reuters) – International oil prices are being driven more by speculation than by supply and demand, Italian Economy Minister Giulio Tremonti said on Friday.

 

“My judgment is that the phenomena of demand and supply can cause price rises, but not so violent and sudden,” Tremonti told reporters at the gathering of Group of Eight finance ministers in Osaka.

On another note, Obama, while campaigning in Pennsylvania, said that gasoline was at four dollars a gallon–when it was still at $3.50. How did he know that gasoline would reach four dollars a gallon this summer?

“Spread the Truth” versus Obama’s “Fight the Smears”

June 12, 2008

 Barack Obama has set up a new Web domain, fightthesmears.com, which connects to his main Web site. Pay close attention to the method he is using to fight urban legends, because we can use the same methods to spread the truth about him.

    Invite your friends to spread the truth about Michelle.You can even use our email contact importer to make it easier. Don’t worry — we don’t hold on to any of the email addresses
    you share.
    To:Enter up to 10 email addresses above, separated by commas.

Can anyone set up a similar Web site, with appropriate protection against abuse (such as spamming people while using someone else’s E-mail address as the return address) with which to spread the TRUTH about Obama? The Obama page DOES deter such abuse by including the IP address of the page’s user in the full headers that go to the recipients.
