It turns out you actually do need a wetherman to know which way the wind blows.

Is Angela in that Davis connection somwhere?

MayBee

Heh. Shane responds to Diamond at Politico:

Unfortunately, his theory is wrong.

What Steve didn't do was talk to the people involved. As I report, Deborah Leff and Pat Graham give a credible account of how they chose Obama, and I have no reason to think they're lying. Moreover, if Obama only met Ayers when Obama joined the Annenberg project, it seems hardly likely that he would have pushed for Obama's appointment. On the other hand, since Obama already served on Leff's board, it makes perfect sense that she would propose him.

Ahhh, the incestuous world of the radical, and of BHO.

Frank Marshall Davis was apparently a known Chicago editor till the 60's.

"As a practising journalist, from 1927 to about 1967, he earned an enormous reputation as editor, ...for the Chicago Evening Bulletin, the Chicago Whip, the Chicago Star, the Gary (Indiana) American, the Atlanta World"

Frank Marshall Davis also grew up in Kansas with BHO's (white) grandfather, and they both lived in Hawaii in later life, where BHO met Frank Marshall and cited him as an inspiration.

It is not too much of a stretch that Frank Marshall, living as a Chicago black activist in the 60's, was associates with Allison Marshall, as both men are the same age and he was also a black activist and professor in Chicago at the same time.

BHO got his first law firm job with Alison Marshall, the son of the known black activist Allison Marshall. Allison Marshall the son got BHO in all the foundations and the connections that helped launch BHO's career.

I think McCain should run separate ads on Ayers, Wright and Rezko and Obama' socialistic ideas, non-stop until the election. I don't think it would lose him any votes, and just a small swing would help him a lot. I know he is reluctant to do so, but the media will accuse him of taking the low road on anything he runs against Obama, so might as well go for broke.

matt

Straw;

No, but I do find the mix of advanced evidence gathering techniques and evidence admissability changes brought on by legislation like the Patriot Act, and untoward zeal by some prosecutors troubling....

There is a combination of a loss of ethics by leadership and advances in intelligence and evidence gathering that we've gone through that if continued will lead us down the path of the police state....it's a troubling mix that when directed towards political goals of certain individuals could make the Stasi, Gestapo, and KGB all look like kindergarteners.

The UK, the cradle of human rights, now has the most surveillance cameras in the world, and yet is falling apart. Very strange.

sylvia

Sorry, correction, that's Allison Davis, not Allison Marshall, above. Now funny how Frank Davis and Allison Davis have the same last name, possible they are distantly related.

MayBee

I'm not seeing the part where Shane asked the Obama campaign to explain their secrecy and inconsistent statements/lies about Ayres and Obama.

I can't find the paragraphy where Shane explores why Obama may have left the Chicago Annenberg Challenge out of his campaign rhetoric.

bc

If you want to dig into this, find out who, what, when, and why somebody at Brown U. got the CAC ball rolling with 50 million dollars under their control. I'll bet you the "reparations now" crowd at Brown was up to their ass cracks in this thing.

clarice

Someone should send Shane an explanation of ex hoc ergo propter hoc..He's now chasing his tail.(Per the quote in Calderone)

Jim Rhoads aka vnjagvet

Even if they do accuse him of taking the "low road", doesn't the truth make you free?

Compare the scurrilous ad put out by the NAACP showing a black person being dragged behind a truck. That was both the low road and false.

People should know that BHO is unashamedly and indisputably the most far left candidate for President in the history of the Republic.

For many of us, that alone disqualifies him for President.

Re: NYT's Ayers-Obama Whitewash

A quick follow-up to Stanley's post: Isn't it about time that campaign reporters demand live answers from Obama himself, rather than from uninformed campaign aides, about the basics of his relationship with Bill Ayers? For starters: When did you first meet Bill Ayers? When did you first meet Bernardine Dohrn? When did you first learn that they were unrepentant terrorists? Did you ever tell either of them that you condemned their terrorist activities? Did you ever express reservations to anyone about serving on boards with Ayers? About funding his radical educational initiatives? About having him host a political reception for you? About accepting a campaign contribution from him? How many times have you or your wife been in his home? How many times have he or Dohrn been in yours? Did you meet with Ayers before becoming chair of the CAC board? When did you last have any communication with Ayers or Dohrn? And so on. Get to work.

"I have no reason to think they're lying"

Obama shills never lie. Astounding!

MayBee

Steve Diamond points out that Obama only joined the Joyce foundation in late November of 1994. CAC got going March 2005.

So Leff must have really loved him after knowing him such a short time, even if working for charitable foundations together means you barely brush up against each other, as Shane wants us to believe with Ayres/Obama.

sylvia

So just speculating, it's possible that BHO's grandfather in Kansas had an interest in the civil rights movement, as he seemed to have a relationship with Frnak Marshall Davis while there. It's possible that that is how BHO's father got a connection there from Kenya, and how he got into the Kansas University, and maybe somehow BHO's mom met his dad to begin with. Not that it matters, but just an interesting possible connection there.

yes 1995. Thanks Clarice. Just 5 months after Obama joined the Joyce board.

"People should know that BHO is unashamedly and indisputably the most far left candidate for President in the history of the Republic."

McCain should offer $100k dollar prize for the person who can submit the best idea on how to relay that message. To me, if everyone was aware of that and still elected him, so be it, but I am yet to be convinced that is the case.

clarice

CAC was clearly looking for a Black to front for the operation and Ayers was looking for someone to pretend to run it while he did thru his chairmanship of CAC's operating arm. Obama was looking --as always--for something to forward his political career..a perfect juntcture of lefty do gooders, radical do badders and The One.

E. Nigma

Well, now that Joe Biden got Hezbollah out of Lebanon, and the NY Times proved that Barack Obama didn't really know Bill Ayers that well, we are well girded for the last four weeks of dis-information leading up to the election.

The serious long term problem in the possible election of Obama is the final disappearance of truth or objectivity by most of the major news organs. What would be their motive for admitting, "We screwed up and let everybody down. Oops!."

So the obfuscation and dis-information will not only continue once Obama is elected, I believe the tempo of it will actually increase. It's in the best interests of the media outlets to play ball with the presumptive Obama Administration.

And how will we ever know the difference? I think it will start to be positively Orwellian, with neighbor informing on neighbor, before this all over. Someday.

RichatUF

Maybee-

Shane (and other Obama astroturfers to come along this evening) are also leaving out Diamond's and TM's reporting that Ayers and Obama probably worked together on "education reform" through the Developing Communities Project and ABCs Coalition. Which would have been curious because Ayers would have made his triumphant return to Chicago with the ink still wet on his EdD from Columbia, with zero time in a Chicago public elementary school classroom, but he would have the exact elixir to "reform" Chicago public education.

D Adams

Having just read a story elsewhere about Bill Ayers & the one here about Ayers & Obama, has anyone looked into the information (I got from both articles) that suggests both men were at Columbia in 1988? Interesting, if true, as suggested by these separate articles but not included in either.

MayBee

"Catalyst", by the way, bills itself as "Voices of Chicago School Reform".

I tried to search the Catalyst website using their search box, and got this message: We're sorry, access to https://catalyst-chicago.org.master.com/texis/master/search/?q=Obama&submit=Search&s=SS has been blocked by the site owner via robots.txt.

totally manipulated by the press and law enforcement in regard to OJ

Of course I won't discuss OJ either (not even in this post) but the picture of him wearing the Bruno Magli shoes proves he killed Nicole. No way the biased press or law enforcement went back in time to plant that evidence.

Obama's father is Frank Marshall Davis.

That would explain why his grandparents encouraged him to spend so much time with Frank.

PeterUK,

"You would want to know more about your babysitter."

Don't forget for one second, that William Ayers is:

"Ayers’s influence on what is taught in the nation’s public schools is likely to grow in the future. Last month, he was elected vice president for curriculum of the 25,000-member American Educational Research Association (AERA), the nation’s largest organization of education-school professors and researchers. Ayers won the election handily, and there is no doubt that his fellow education professors knew whom they were voting for. In the short biographical statement distributed to prospective voters beforehand, Ayers listed among his scholarly books Fugitive Days, an unapologetic memoir about his ten years in the Weather Underground. The book includes dramatic accounts of how he bombed the Pentagon and other public buildings.

AERA already does a great deal to advance the social-justice teaching agenda in the nation’s schools and has established a Social Justice Division with its own executive director. With Bill Ayers now part of the organization’s national leadership, you can be sure that it will encourage even more funding and support for research on how teachers can promote left-wing ideology in the nation’s classrooms—and correspondingly less support for research on such mundane subjects as the best methods for teaching underprivileged children to read.

LUN

William Ayer is going to be in charge of the
curriculum for every student in America, if Americans don't do something about this now.

Wonder if Obama is getting any votes from Americans who have not been exposed to the Radical leftists teaching in our schools and Colleges for the past 60 or more years?

This info needs to be on every message that mentions William Ayers. I just can't believe Americans will allow this to happen.

M. Simon

Obama's Real Father?.

Jane

So is anyone watching Fox? The Obama surrogate says McCain is tied to some terrorist (who I had never heard of and have now forgotten) who has something to do with a driver and the press. Did anyone get it?

That's what Obama plans to say if McCain brings it up.

centralcal

Jane, I heard it too - it was Jamal Simmons yapping away. He talked too fast, threw out too many names (besides Keating) and claims to digest it all. They are going to throw everything they can to deflect from Ayers. Which means it is a good topic for our side.

boris

Clearly the electorate is going to be more concerned about all that time McCain spent in the company of torturing communists.

Gary Rosen

"phony Goldman"

Right, sara, I'm sure just because he believes his son's murderer walked free he is not sincerely outraged.

Rocco

Thank for the plug Jim Rhoades. The pictures alone are worth a look. The more I think about it, the more I think Ayers was involved in that Columbia uprising too. If John Gregory Jacobs, Tom Hayden, Angela Davis and Che Guevara were there, it only makes sense that Ayers was too!

Kevin McNamara

What's clear from the Times (idiotic headline aside) is that Mayor Daley, the Annenberg Foundation, and the University of Illinois Board of Regents pal around with terrorists.

Now, try saying that with a straight face.

Guevara couldn't have been there, he was executed in 67

Kevin - I don't have any problem at all saying that with a very straight face. It is Chicago, after all.

I think OJ was guilty AND framed both. I never believed a lot of the evidence presented and neither did the jury. Police and perhaps prosecution misconduct gave the defense an opening and they milked it well. Maybe OJ got his due now, but I thought the "kidnapping" charge was bogus and "armed robbery" a stretch.

Daniel Pipes is speaking close to me (I rsvp'd for a ticket yesterday) next Sunday at some event that Michael Medved is hosting. Maybe this will be a topic (there are other speakers).

glenda waggoner

It should be expected that the press would want to question Obama on the failure of the only time he was the "one" responsible for something, other than voting present or having someone else write legislation he put his name on-The Annenberg challenge was a complete failure. No children were helped.
A lot of communist, socialist individuals and organizations were given money for off the wall carp. He was responsible for that, along with the other shady people on that board. McCain needs to come in with notes on who got what and what did it have to do with bringing the Chicago schools out of the gutter? Wright and his racist black theology, that Obama was inspired to write a book about, nonetheless-should be hammered. And Rezko and his Middle East terrorist, dirty money, influence peddling needs an answer. Why would Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Tom Brokaw, Anderson Cooper,
Gwen "Ifell"(ha ha)the editors at NYT, POST, TIME,NEWSWEEK want these answered? Is this who anyone really believes is the person who should have American lives in his hands? Please, he is more forgiving of the guy in his neighborhood who used to be a terrorist, than any American soldier doing his duty for his country. Ask him about his ACORN work, Tom! Ask him about his Fannie contributions, Brian. Someone unplug his teleprompter. Clean his ears(boy they are big enough to hide a BIG microphone! Someone ask him to explain why he hasn't met a tax he doesn't love! How his business tax proposals will isolate this country, bottom GDP and exports. Kill small business-who oil this economy! I am sick and tired of the media who think that I
approve of their message. To think McCain has kept polls even close should scare the ....out of Axelrod-after all, except for
people who desire to hear the whole story, both sides of an argument, the only thing put out by 95% of media is Obama will solve any problem, beat any foe, take care of you, and bring joy and love to America. He is a silver-tongued doofus who has led his entire adult life with and beliefs and people that despise the goodness and spirit of the majority of Americans!

Now, are we having fun, yet? It is a lovely warm day here in Texas.

ben

I agree with Glenda...I would rather be ahead than behind by 6 points, but considering the hype and the press and money I agree Obama's team must be unhappy they haven't put this away yet.

Cecil Turner

Now, try saying that with a straight face.

You mean because you left out "mobsters"? I agree it ain't inclusive . . . but the presumption that a bunch of leftist pols/organizers loves America is the risible part of that notion.

Tangentially related, this post-9/11 Horowitz article highlights the Times's "soft-focus" on Ayers's Fugitive Days. The more things change . . .

M. Simon

I think OJ was guilty AND framed both.

Yep. Watched the whole trial. The LAPD had a bad habit of "improving" the evidence. Rampart scandal showed that.

StrawmanCometh

"I think OJ was guilty AND framed both"
At least you realize he was guilty, but as read my Perry Mason and Mickey Spillane, the guilty cannot be framed.
"Police and perhaps prosecution misconduct gave the defense an opening"
Police misconduct being using the "N" word 5? years earlier and then lying about it? IMO it was judicial misconduct to allow that line of questioning.
"Maybe OJ got his due now, but I thought the "kidnapping" charge was bogus and "armed robbery" a stretch"
No doubt he got his due.

PaulL

With O.J. behind bars, how is he now ever going to find Nicole's real killers? (Unless he runs into them in prison, I guess.)

Extraneus

I still say part of the problem is the term "unrepentent domestic terrorost."

The word "terrorist" has been pretty well used over the past few years, and different people have different connotations. Most people probably have a picture of a Muslim in their minds, and an awful lot of people weren't old enough during the time the Weather Underground as a term even made sense.

I think the oft-used term "unrepentent domestic terrorost" dilutes the intended effect. The man was a bomb designer. He designed bombs that possibly killed Americans, and regardless of whether they did or not, they were certainly designed to kill people. Americans. Cops, for example.

Something like "bomb designer for radical domestic terrorists in the 60s and early 70s" would at least distinguish him from PETA or John Walker Lindh.

Cecil Turner

Bottom line, though, is that this is boring. Pointing out Dems' links with a bunch of gutless pinko sympathizers with a penchant for treason evokes nary a blink (and many a yawn). Of course they do.

I think we ought to spice this one up a bit. (If this were Kos or excitable Andy, we'd have gotten there long before now . . .) Maybe the reason Barry wants to minimize the relationship is because there was a bit of bromance goin' on:

Polyamory and homosexuality were advocated. Ayers writes in his autobiography that he participated in both as a matter of politics.[31]
BBF [or whatever]? How swingin' were those Columbia dayz?

Extraneus

Guess I should have previewed that first line. :-)

PaulL

Sarah and McCain MUST get the Ayers message out to the public. Thank God they're having Sarah start today.

They must end this media nonsense about non-fatal bombs. The NAIL bomb that Ayers designed went off prematurely, killing his girlfriend and other Weathermen. That NAIL bomb was meant to go off at a DANCE for servicemen and their wives.

I don't care if McCain is asked about Iraq, the economy, or drilling for oil, every answer should include that Obama is COVERING UP his decades-long relationship with the NAIL bomber Ayers. And he can throw in for good measure that the NYTimes is running cover for him.

A commenter at Instapundit has a really, really interesting question re: Ayers and Obama.

M. Simon

Police misconduct being using the "N" word 5? years earlier and then lying about it?

No. Manufacturing evidence. Blood on the gate being notorious.

The Rampart scandal two years later proved they made a habit of doing this. And yes. You can frame a guilty man. The jury did not trust any evidence when it was obvious some was manufactured. Which is the correct way to go. If the police have no integrity then where are you? Where you are is that innocent men are railroaded and police murderers go free. See Rampart scandal two years later.

An Average American

It's sad that the "Grey Lady" has fallen so far. In my opinion, ,"All the news that's fit to print", should be replaced with, "All the opinion that's fit to print in the Upper East and Lower West sides of Manhattan (plus San Francisco and most of Western Europe)".

Peggy McGilligan

Bear with me, before we go back to 1995: all hopes rest on Governor Palin at the Vice Presidential Debate, no thanks to Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson. Ms. Palin knocks it out of the ballpark; she delivers. There’s an observation I'd like to make about Democrats though. A faux pas they commit with increased regularity. Now if you don't like Bozo the clown, if you feel that he’s a particularly bad clown and bad for the country, why then don a Bozo wig, a pair of size 14 shoes, and a rubber nose whenever denouncing Bozo?

If there’s an official uniform of the president, it's the pastel blue tie, white shirt, and dark suit first popularized by George W. Bush. The color scheme comes from the presidential flag. No other American president made those colors his signature style before George W. Bush. In 2004, Bill Clinton even had his presidential portrait painted wearing George W's distinctive garb. Although the 1960 Kennedy vs. Nixon debate was televised in black & white, people still argue the significance dark blue vs. grey played during the election.

But there remains no ambiguity about which candidate wore what color (Kennedy, blue). Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And, the fashion police have long memories. Ms. Palin dressed for and aced the debate. Note: before castigating Bozo, please try not to emulate Bozo. It makes one look like a clown. Unlike foppish Al Gore, Joe Biden and others, we must not allow our inner bozos to dictate our thoughts and actions, much less our mode of dress: https://theseedsof9-11.com

Rick Ballard

Obama's close association with the racist Wright and the felon Rezko provide ample proof that his character is such that he, himself, does not possess the capacity to feel shame.

If he possessed any but the lowest type of character, his collaboration with the terrorist Ayers in directing funds intended to improve the miserable lot of those so unfortunate as to attend public schools in Chicago to a cheap Marxist political scheme whose aim was Obama's and other leftist's political advancement would be sufficient.

I have no idea what could shame Obama. I believe divers would have to be sent into the deepest sewers in Chicago to find something dirty enough to shame him.

Rick Ballard

Ayer's ineptitude as a bomb maker did kill his friends. It's just a damned shame he wasn't with them when they paid the price for his incompetence.

DebinNC

If Obama's Chairmanship of CAC were a point of pride, would his website's official bio leave it out entirely?

"Soon after [law school], he [Obama] returned to Chicago to practice as a civil rights lawyer and teach constitutional law. Finally, his advocacy work led him to run for the Illinois State Senate, where he served for eight years. In 2004, he became the third African American since Reconstruction to be elected to the U.S. Senate."

The Chairman of CAC omission speaks volumes. I'm not aware of his being asked why it failed or about lessons learned, much less to account for the squandered $160M.

For those who believe "Guilty as Sin, Free as a bird" William Ayers is a joke. Here is what America has to look forward to as William Ayers takes control of curriculum for all American schools.

"Roots of a Rhodes Scholar Radical"

"Meet 22-year-old Yale senior (and newly-announced Rhodes Scholar) Chesa Boudin. Here’s a kid who has had an interesting life. His biological parents, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, are unrepentant veterans of the Weather Underground. They are also inmates of the New York State prison system. Chesa was a babe of 14 months when mom and dad started doing time. Boudin, serving 20 years to life, was denied parole in 2001 after more than 35,000 Americans wrote letters opposing her release. Gilbert is serving three consecutive 25-years-to-life terms.

"If his recent comments to the New York Times are any indication, Chesa Boudin shows the unmistakable imprint of his four radical parents, whose transgressions he downplays.
