I'd choose to leave Michelle behind as well...

clarice

Maybe he went to Bali with his other wife, bernardine..

bgates

Ann Patty, who killed a book that now has more than 3 million copies in print

Unfair! The book in print concerns Obama's primary expertise: Barack Obama. The book Poseidon killed was, in a bit of bad luck, supposed to be about the one subject of which Obama is almost completely ignorant: the world outside of Barack Obama.

Old Lurker

Bad, please don't use the words "Michelle" and "Behind" on the same page.

bad

LOL Old Lurker

anduril

Solution: Barry hands the book project over to Ayers and heads off to Bali--alone or with la Michelle, matters not. The notion of him writing the book in a month is nonsense for anyone who has done any amount of writing. And for anyone who has listened to his extemporaneous stuttering, it's even more ludicrous.

Jane

OT:

Ms. Plame Wilson's 15 Minutes Nearly Up

May this mercifully be one of the final chapters with this useful idiot.

A federal appeals court has ruled that the Central Intelligence Agency didn't violate the free speech rights of ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson when it refused to allow her to publish details of her possible pre-2002 work for the agency.

bad,you can't fool me. I don't think you put those two words together by accident;>)

To avoid such mistakes in the future, please refer to FLOTUS as "the Belt".

OT, just heard on the news that Hassan the shooter will be tried for 13 counts of premeditated murder. The Government will seek the death penalty.

bad

Jim, I confess, what I really wanted to write was:

"I'd choose to leave Michelle's behind as well..."

But I didn't want to get THWACKED.

matt

Bali? the frickin computer would short in the humidity.....And the dope is good, I hear...yep, really focused.

It would seem to me that a quiet room in Chicago in the middle of winter with no distractions would be more appropriate.

Jane

That's where Ayers was Matt.

clarice

What happened to elliott? He was here a minute ago asking where to post news.

Rob Crawford

I preferred the "Road to Bali" with Hope, Crosby, and Lamour.

Porchlight

Nice post, TM. I still hold out hope that this backstory will be teased out (and maybe even confirmed!) within my lifetime.

MayBee

When did Obama and Jarrett become so close? I thought she hired Michelle, and Michelle introduced her to her fiance.

bad

Elliott is posting on the "No Blood" thread.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I just read the blood for oil thread and see that i was a day late and a dollar short with the news of the Hassan prosecution. The major addition was the info that the case will be tried as a capital case under the UCMJ as we earlier discussed. Since you can't die more than 13 times, this seems to me like the quickest way to get a conviction that will not be subject to countless appeals.

MayBee

Since you can't die more than 13 times

I did read somewhere that 13 was the limit.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

If it isn't, it should be, MayBee.

MayBee

OK, Valerie Jarrett hired Michelle Robinson in 1991. The story is that Michelle introduced her fiance to the boss so he could decide if it was a good fit for his future wifey.
So did he become best friends with his fiance's boss?
I don't know. That just seems as weird as the rest of the story.
Surely he knew Jarrett before she hired Michelle.

DebinNC

I believe I read that the military hadn't executed anyone since 1961. In Hasan's case, living imo is more punitive than dying.

bad

Ibama left The Belt early and often in their marriage. First, on the Bali trip then later as an Illinois state legislator closely followed during his time as a US senator, and finally during the campaign for the presidency.

Most of their marriage has been spent apart...

Jane

Most of their marriage has been spent apart...

The rest of it on Air Force One.

Rick Ballard

"Most of their marriage has been spent apart..."

Bad,

That's a trait he may have adopted from his putative father. He probably nixed Michelle coming along on the basis of potential excess baggage charges...

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Oh, isn't this special?

The National Education Association (NEA) website recommends Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” for nation’s teachers as a classroom aide.

His metrocitizenship wants looking at.

So was he in Bali with an American passport and a visa or did he use an Indonesian passport. Inquiring minds want to know.
================================

MayBee

Yeah, Kim. I've wondered why it had to be Bali. I suspect it's "Bali". He went to Indonesia, but we aren't meant to know why or where.

laura

sara,
don't see it, do you have a more specific link?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

My son's best friend has just been admitted to the hospital with H1N1. He is very very sick. I'm glad my son has been too busy at work to do anything but talk to him on the phone for the last 4 weeks.

clarice

Bali's very cheap and pleasant..

MayBee

It is. It is heavenly. But it is very far away, and he was a newlywed, and he didn't get his book written anyway.

Sue

Wasn't his mother still in Indonesia at that time?

MayBee

I think in and out of Indonesia at the time, but she's never mentioned as being in Bali. You notice she isn't mentioned and she surely did not help with that book (which hurt her, iirc).

windansea

Bali's very cheap and pleasant..

yes it is, heaven for surfers

I used to surf at Sanur Beach, very nice right break, never saw Obama.

MayBee

I know I'm too suspicious, but just as I think Obama knew the Ayers, I think he knew Jarrett before he went off to Harvard.
He's never said how Harvard was paid for, though he once tried to say he had "worked his way through college" only to have it come out later that he never really had had a job during college.

It's just that there are so many obvious lies and coverups, I feel sure they are lying and covering up for a reason.

bad

LOL Rick, but seriously, Barry did seem to find his wife to be excess baggage very soon after the wedding...

MayBee

Yeah, bad, and it's her boss he's whining about her to.

Rick Ballard

Bad,

It was a political merger, just like Bubba and RW. All four had their tickets punched at well recognized Moron Credentialing Centers in politics law and all four showed their basic ineptitude for their putative area of expertise in very short order. The ward heeler's daughter was a stepping stone - and she knows it.

bad

One can understand the perpetually petulant expression on The Belt's face a little better knowing all that, Maybee.

bad

...and Rick.

centralcal

MayBee: Didn't I hear, read somewhere that Valerie Jarrett's f-i-l was a pal of Marshall Davis? All of their lives were intertwined from the get go.

bad

Did Valerie arrange the marriage? It would explain the effort to keep Ibama from admitting when he first knew Valerie.

As a community Organizer, you'd think he would have been working to negotiate some sort of improvements in the slums with the slum landlords.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

A classic story. The birth of a front man and his consort. The Once and the Belt were groomed to play a role for the past 20 years.

Jarrett, Ayers, Dohrn, and Dailey all knew an opportunity when they saw one.

But Chance now has to make real decisions. He can run but he can't hide. And now the message begins unravelling.

One thing about us JOMers. We saw this coming a year and a half ago. And we were right.

MayBee

I think I read that.
It is interesting that both of Valerie Jarrett's parents are at the University of Chicago, Barack Obama's generous employer.

MayBee

Jarrett's mother is a renown expert in--- Education. In Chicago.

MayBee

Oh. Jarrett's mother graduated from University of Chicago, and taught at its Lab School. Her father is a professor emeritus there.

MayBee

“Barack doesn’t belong to you,” she told me she warned Michelle.

That is an incredibly goofy thing to say.

bad

What are the odds Bill Ayers and Bernardine were tight with Jarrett's parents, bonding over the issue of education and The Lab School?

bad

...and their shared ownership of Ibama...

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Don't you know he belongs not to the Belt, but to the ages, MayBee?

MayBee

And yes, the Erickson Institute for education that Jarrett's mother founded focuses on Social Justice.
And according to their Facebook page:

11. U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan asked our founder Barbara Bowman to Washington to advise the department on early learning initiatives.

Barbara Bowman is Valerie Jarrett's mom.

MayBee

Ok, I see other places have reported (but I haven't seen it confirmed) that Tom Ayers was on the board of Valerie's mom's Erickson Institute.

Come on. I don't know what it means, but they are lying about how Barack met Valerie.

Commie Blaster

Bill Ayers has ties to at least 8 people in the White House. See who they are here: http://www.commieblaster.com/obama/index.html

bad

WiKipedia says Ayers was chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Erikson Institute.

LUN

bad

ummmm.... LUN

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I say it's incest, and I say to hell with it.

bad

We're not the only ones making these connections. Rep. Steve King on video.

LUN

bad

More Steve King on NBC.

LUN

Sue

What is really scary is the thought of who owns Obama? He has a lot of secrets he doesn't want us to know about, and I'm not referring to his birth certificate.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I think the circumstantial evidence is mounting as to who some of the stockholders are, Sue.

bad

And do all of the people who own him know about all of the other people who own him?

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Great question, bad. I suspect the answer is a big fat no. Users like them never think those they are using are users too.

Rick Ballard

Jim,

I think of him as a time share rather than a corporation. Ayers/Soros are the operations managers and everyone from Indonesian passport agents to Harlem crack buyers has a claim on him. IMO - his tension level jumped substantially when Ayers "kiddingly" dropped the authorship claim. The chasm between what a President can actually do and what his commie handlers want done may be unbridgeable.

What will they do with him when they have exacted the maximum possible?

MayBee

You know, a few days ago I saw some Politico reporter saying "OMG! Now they are trying to make Valerie Jarrett look like a bad guy!"

I don't think Jarrett' a bad guy, necessarily.But you'd think someone in the press would be curious about this whole made-up narrative. Why?

Sue

MayBee,

I don't understand the medias lack of interest.

bad

At least the media is consistent. They've NEVER wanted to know anything about Ibama's background.

Beyond what Bill wrote in the book...

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

With Biden and Pelosi waiting in the wings, there I have trouble coming up with scenarios that would be good for the Nation if he cracks before the end of his term, RIck.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

We can hope that when they seat the new Congress, they'll decide they don't want Nancy as Speaker anymore and vote for someone else.

sylvia

Yes it is all so strange, I'm wondering where the connections lie. Obama was groomed from a young age it seems. So how did the commie crew come into contact with Obama?

That's why I speculated Obama was Malcolm X's offspring, because that would be one way to explain the early connection. Although I saw Obama's half brother on Larry King and saw some resemblance, so maybe I have to kill that theory.

So what else? What about Obama's grandfather or his mother? Did they have any connections to the Ayers? What about Frank Marshall? It has to be something. Also any connections with the Ayers family to Bali? Did Tom Ayers have a vacay house there?

Rick Ballard

Jim,

That brings Hedley Lamar handing the paddle and rubber ball on a rubber string to Gov. LePetomane to mind. I'm not hoping he cracks, I just wouldn't bet a nickel against it happening.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Who know which thread to put this, so here it is:

Palin First Look at her book?


[S]he says that most of her legal bills were generated defending what she called frivolous ethics complaints, but she reveals that about $500,000 was a bill she received to pay for the McCain campaign vetting her for the VP nod. She said when she asked the McCain campaign if it would help her financially, she was told McCain's camp would have paid all the bills if he'd won; since he lost, the vetting legal bills were her responsibility...

Crap, in addition to all the bills for the bogus ethics complaints, she gets hit with another half million from the McCain Campaign. Good grief, no wonder she had to resign and go out and make some money. They were trying to totally annihilate her.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

She must have scared a lot of people, Sara. That kind of stuff came from both sides of the aisle. The Pubs as well as the Dims went after her with a vengeance. Why so much ammunition expended on her? They tried to bust her, and she won't be busted.

Jane

Speaking of connections:

LUN

Melinda Romanoff

"Brown shirts" is a racist term, Jane.

sylvia

"The Pubs "

Ha. That's my word. I can see now it's slowly sweeping the nation. As did my word "skeeved", maybe also 'skeezed'.

Tempo dulu

Who wouldn't want to go to Bali?
