Follow the money. Osama Obama is trying to out slick
Slick Willy and Hitlery. We need to expose this Mecca Candidate for the subversive weasel he really is.

In a sane world, this would be the nail in his campaign’s coffin. But then,….

I can’t believe the guy has so many Muslim relatives and wouldn’t be Muslim himself. There are very few mixed Muslim/Christian families, and the mother married two Muslims. He was raised in Indonesia. Whenever he states his “Christian” beliefs, his “Jesus” seems more like a social revolutionary, Che Guevara figure, something you would expect Muslims to revere.
Muslims obviously aren’t buying that Obama is a Christian, judging by the number of donors.

Donations from Muslims now! That does it! Obama is clearly dangerous!
Excellent work, Debe.

Once a mohameddan, always a mohameddan. The zebra can`t change its stripes:
Thu Jan 31, 7:41 AM ET
PARIS (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama told a French magazine in an interview that if he wins office, he will hold a summit with Muslim countries to better the United States’ image in the world.
“Once I’m elected, I want to organize a summit in the Muslim world, with all the heads of state, to have an honest discussion about ways to bridge the gap that grows every day between Muslims and the West,” Thursday’s edition of Paris Match quoted Obama as saying,
“I want to ask them to join our fight against terrorism. We must also listen to their concerns,” Obama said in the French-language transcript.
He might as well join the OIC [Organisation of Islamic Countries] as he is one of them.

Foxnews had a headline today the Obama raised a HUGE amount of money this week. Sure would like to know where it came from. I think it was 32M.
He is running at least 30 commercials a day in Atlanta on ABC, how much does that cost?
This is the most manipulated election I have ever seen. And I have seen a lot, my mother worked for the democratic party to elected Lyndon Johnson. (I left the D party 25 years ago)
Gas prices will be going up until ‘the right person’ is elected then they will go way down. Mark my words. There will be the necessity to give us a false sense of happiness while we get sold out, to put us back to sleep.

I got an email that said that Obama is a Muslim, took the Pledge on the Quran, and listens to Pete Seeger records. He’s a commie too!

Watch out Infidel Dhimmis, here`s what O`Bummer got in store for you:
Al Ghazali’s views regarding non-Muslim dhimmis ñ which were typical of the prevailing written opinions of Muslim theologians and jurists during the Abbasid-Baghdadian Caliphate ñ resulted in tangible acts of dhimmi persecution, as recorded, for example, in this contemporary chronicle from Baghdad by Obadyah the Proselyte, in 1100 A.D.:
Öthe Caliph of Baghdad, al-Muqtadi [1075-1094], had given power to his vizier, Abu ShujaÖ [who] imposed that each male Jew should wear a yellow badge on his headgear. This was one distinctive sign on the head and the other was on the neck- a piece of lead of the weight of a silver dinar hanging round the neck of every Jew and inscribed with the word dhimmi to signify that the Jew had to pay poll-tax. Jews also had to wear girdles round their wastes. Abu Shuja further imposed two signs on Jewish women. They had to wear a black and a red shoe, and each woman had to have a small brass bell on her neck or shoe, which would tinkle and thus announce the separation of Jewish from Gentile [Muslim] women. He assigned cruel Muslim men to spy upon Jewish women, in order to oppress them with all kinds of curses, humiliation, and spite. The Gentile population used to mock all the Jews, and the mob and their children used to beat up the Jews in all the streets of BaghdadÖWhen a Jew died, who had not paid up the poll-tax [jizya] to the full and was in debt for a small or large amount, the Gentiles did not permit burial until the poll-tax was paid. If the deceased left nothing of value, the Gentiles demanded that other Jews should, with their own money, meet the debt owed by the deceased in poll-tax; otherwise they [threatened] they would burn the body.

Hey Audacious this`ll make you drool:
The eminent Islamic scholar W.M. Watt stresses Al-Ghazaliís Muslim orthodoxy. He says that Al-Ghazali was ìacclaimed in both the East and West as the greatest Muslim after Muhammad.
And this is what Al Ghazali said:
[O]ne must go on jihad (i.e., warlike razzias or raids) at least once a yearÖone may use a catapult against them [non-Muslims] when they are in a fortress, even if among them are women and children. One may set fire to them and/or drown themÖIf a person of the Ahl al-Kitab [People of The Book ñ primarily Jews and Christians] is enslaved, his marriage is [automatically] revokedÖOne may cut down their treesÖOne must destroy their useless books. Jihadists may take as booty whatever they decideÖthey may steal as much food as they needÖ
[T]he dhimmi is obliged not to mention Allah or His ApostleÖJews, Christians, and Majians must pay the jizya [poll tax on non-Muslims]Öon offering up the jizya, the dhimmi must hang his head while the official takes hold of his beard and hits [the dhimmi] on the protruberant bone beneath his ear [i.e., the mandible]Ö They are not permitted to ostentatiously display their wine or church bellsÖtheir houses may not be higher than the Muslimís, no matter how low that is. The dhimmi may not ride an elegant horse or mule; he may ride a donkey only if the saddle[-work] is of wood. He may not walk on the good part of the road. They [the dhimmis] have to wear [an identifying] patch [on their clothing], even women, and even in the [public] bathsÖ[dhimmis] must hold their tongueÖ.
(From the Wagjiz, written in 1101 A.D.)

Borat Obomba: International Man of Mystery and Skulduggery

TheOmegaMan on February 1, 2008 at 5:30 am

Now that you know he’s a commie and Seeger fan, I’m sure we can count on you to NOT vote for him. I’ll pass it on.

Aunt Bea on February 1, 2008 at 8:17 am

Obama is revealed as the Islamic Terrorist choice for our President. Glenn Beck and Michelle Malkin revealed two days ago McCain as the North American Union-booster’s choice. The Clinton’s are no better than Richard III. While Romney… there’s something wrong about that guy, just don’t know what yet.
Clever scheme these candidates play, using party lines to manipulate votes – an opposing party boosting an unpopular man (McCain) to lead his party’s popular vote, and tempt the majority to stay home. While the opposing party gains power with few of the country’s citizen’s choosing to live under such people… very cute.
George Washington was right: party loyalties do eventually lead to tyranny. It seems no matter whom we vote for we lose our nation and our sovereignty. “Commander in Thief” indeed.

Full marks to Debbie for focusing on the Muslim angle, but consider the big picture for a moment–
1. Essentially all politicians are scum, and you will find one form of corruption or another on virtually all of them. No argument.
2. Obama’s rise brings down the Clintons, and all things considered is a better situation. An added bonus is that the Dems are in disarray–although so are the Republicans.
Still, getting rid of the Clintons would be a massive benefit.
3. Do we deserve better than the brood of vipers that have risen up on both sides? Absolutely. But it will not be happening any time soon.

Red Ryder on February 1, 2008 at 10:36 am

Going beyond pragmatic considerations of which politician to support or not support, or which one benefits or doesn’t benefit from having informtion like this disclosed, there is always, except in really extreme situations (which this isn’t), intrinsic value from having information disclosed about any candiate, whether it is Keating-5-McCain, with his massive campaign contributions from lobbyists, Obama, Hillary or Romney. Information like this is inherently value apart from who is helped or hurt by it. I look at it this way because I think there wouldn’t be too much difference between Obama and Hillary on foreign policy. Obama would be bad, and so would Hillary, in spite of her attempts to make herself more appealing to self-styled moderates. On cutting-edge issues like financing Iranian opposition groups, scuttling the Annapolis disaster, or even border and VISA (which most people don’t even mention) security, and removing illegal aliens, I’m not sure there’s significant differences no matter who the candidate is, R or D, so the more truth the better for all of them.

The Clinton’s are connected, and probably bought by the ChiCom’s. So everyone but Romney and Paul are already purchased by hostile outside forces bent on our enslavement and deaths; and these two are shady at best.
[I never thought I’d EVER write that! Sounds a little nuts…]

You idiots! Don’t you know that George Bush is IN BUSINESS with Muslim businessmen from the middle east??????? In addition to their business dealings with George Bush AND his family, did you know that they also own a lot of property in the US? You people are so one sided and stupid. My God! You are so ignorant that it’s pathetic. You have no knowledge about what’s really going on and you think that you do. If you had even 1/3 of the knowledge about who is dealing with whom, you would know that so many of our leaders have business relationships with businessmen from the Middle East. When donations come into a campaign, you may or may not know who gave the money until AFTER you receive it. That is just how that system works people. Think about all of the senators, presidents and others that have received donations that they had to give back. Republicans AND Democrats have been on the receiving end of donations that had to be returned.

AreYouSerious? on February 2, 2008 at 12:01 pm

I don’t know what’s worse: The obvious xenophobia/racism represented here by the implication that Muslim = Danger, or the unbelievable naivity about the uncomfortably close ties your beloved Bushies all have with the Saudi royal family. Anybody ever hear of the Carlyle Group?

Dude on February 3, 2008 at 9:33 am

Ohmigod!Give me a break! This does not mean that Barrack is a Muslim. If he is, he’s not a racist or terrorist. Now this is commical.
The Bushes have all sorts of deals with the enemy. No matter who wins, republican or democrat, I bet money that the oil prices will go down. You got energy corps making 40bil a quarter…I bet you anything Bush is getting his share.
Check out this website of Republican Sex Scandals. Full of scandals and this is partial list.

LembaJew on February 3, 2008 at 10:54 pm

Debbie, I’m sorry. Being Muslim does not = terrorist. Your comment is very racist. I would rather you say that Obama is not qualified for the job rather than say he’s a racist.
He was on a search for G_d. He embraced his father’s religion. Islam and Judasim was in Africa long before Christianity.

LembaJew on February 4, 2008 at 12:10 am

lembajew, islam is not a race so there is no way that can be said to be a racist statement. Muslim/islam is a religion/cult…NOT a race!
