Your premise was not factual, nor was your conclusion. I don't care how much gobbledygook you throw around, if either the premise or conclusion of your argument is false, the argument is invalid. Period.

You didn't provide any fact. In your response to my post, the only fact that was provided was in the post of mine that you quoted.

Period.

Oh, and cast your false accusations elsewhere.

Period.

Communist flag in his headquarters? Please explain and provide CREDIBLE sources.







I think I am done indulging you. There was not an "excuse" there was a debunking.


There was? not by you ther wasn't, all you did was make my point offering more excuses.

Excuses like those you have given attempting to explain away the facts the same way most obamaniacs usually do by mis representing quoted material and as you have done once again by mis representing mine.

See Example Below:



YOU claimed Obama had a communist flag hanging in HIS HEADQUARTERS.


No I never said that , YOU DID! and that is your own quote at the top of your post, NOT MINE. I know what I said and do you know why?

I WAS THERE WHEN I WROTE IT! and YOU said "headquarters",, not me.



Then when I ask for credible sources you post a picture from a FOX News Affiliate that was posted on World Net Daily....WOW.

Even the FOX Affiliate that the image was taken from acknowledged that the image was from an INDEPENDANT VOLOUNTEER OFFICE and was not funded by or endorsed by the Obama campaign.


Oh puhleeeease, don't talk as if you just got some *BlocK Buster* of late breaking debunking news because I know where the photograph comes from and do you know why?

I WAS THERE WHEN I POSTED IT! THAT'S WHY!

I was there when I read the article also, I was there when I read the excuse Obama gave for it being there and who it belongs too and LO and Behold! She just happens to be a commie lover! JUST LIKE OBAMA!

Now Isn't THAT UNUSUAL!

No, it isn't.

Not if you know Barack Obama it isn't and that was MY POINT if you had bothered to read MY POST!

That as we read his book, and look at his backround, his fans, his friends and close supporters, colleagues etc, a pattern emerges.

It is one where Barack Obama is having to constantly offer excuses that amount to saying the same thing, or essentially words to the effect, I know all my freinds are communists, radicals and terrorists, but that bomb didn't belong to me or that Office wasn't owned by me, as if campaign offices where most work as volunteers, are all spaces we will find a title with the owners name on it saying Barack Obama.

Or his latest slippery slick trick saying his association to underground weatherman terrorist, Bill Ayers is just someone he worked with when he mentions knowing him BEFORE he worked with him IN HIS BOOK! Or that we aren't to make that an issue that he has nothing to do with his campaign but THAT didn't stop him from accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Ayers.

Now please don't tell me someone like that is just giving Obama that kind of cash out of the kindness of his heart!

Get real mayberry, people like that do it because they want FAVORS in return and yes Obama is Obligated to these people and if he doesn't think so, just wait till they want those favors called in because in spite of what Obama thinks, THAT is what contributors to his campaign not only believe, THEY EXPECT IT! You can ask anyone knowing the late Sam Giancanna or anyone close to one of the Dead kennedy's

If he doesn't think so, he can go to school on someone who has already been through all that kind of trouble in the Keating 5 scandal and is why he hasn't got the kind of political war chest Obama has amassed. His name is John McCain and is why he has been so vocal about campaign finance reform and clean elections.

That is something Obama knows nothing about and why he'll take money from anyone no matter how bad it looks he will just say things that are supposed to (in his mind I guess) make us not worry or cast aspersions that we are attacking him. I mean after all he assured us he isn't going to have Bill Ayers in his Cabinet as one of his advisors! Gee Barack,, how graciously above board and honest that is of you,,

So let me see Saul Alinsky is JUST a coincedence and Bill Ayers is Just a Coincedence and that Flag hanging is Just a coincedence so far so good right?

Obama in his Book mentions a man named “Frank” finally admiting this Frank was in fact Frank Marshall Davis August 19, 2008

I have read the books online and found those Obama says were lying about him in fact were not lying at all but like I said Obama keeps tripping over more and more Communists willing to volunteer their time and office space for the cause. You know the change we can believe in by the one we have all been waiting for. The Messiah himself Saint Obama. Then I had read an article by Cliff Kincaid one of the journalists for Security.org.


Obama’s Communist Cover-up Continues
Cliff Kincaid



In a surprising admission that could become a major scandal in the presidential race, Barack Obama’s 40-page so-called “rebuttal” to Jerome Corsi’s book, The Obama Nation, acknowledges for the first time that the senator once had a personal relationship with identified Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis, a key high-level operative in a Soviet-sponsored network in Hawaii.

But the 40-page report, advertised and sold to the media as a refutation of Corsi’s “lies,” doesn’t identify Davis as a hard-core communist and it dishonestly edits an article about Davis to eliminate references to his admitted involvement in CPUSA activities and make the black revolutionary writer and “poet” look like a civil rights activist.

In fact, Davis was a secret CPUSA member who continued his involvement in the CPUSA or its front activities into the 1970s, when he became Barack Obama’s mentor in Hawaii. Corsi’s book devotes part of chapter three, “Black Rage, Drugs, and a Communist Mentor,” to Davis.

This official Obama campaign cover-up, which attempts to further mislead voters about Obama’s mysterious and controversial background, occurs as serious questions are being raised about Obama’s initial soft line toward the Russian invasion of Georgia. In his first statement on the crisis, Obama failed to directly condemn the Russian invasion. Obama “did not directly blame Russia” for the crisis, the New York Times acknowledged.

Did Obama’s position reflect inexperience in foreign affairs, the influence of advisers, or an ideological tendency to take Russia’s side in global affairs against the U.S. and its allies?

According to the editor of Davis’s books, John Edgar Tidwell, Davis was not only a secret CPUSA member but tried to recruit a prominent poet to the CPUSA. It’s not known if he tried to recruit Obama because the major media refuse to question Obama about his relationship with Davis, and Davis died in 1987.
Obama in his report about his book and in his own words has fionally admitted that a guy named "frank" one of his mentors he says is in fact the same guy.

Lets see now, this makes about 5 mentors ( I was lucky enough to have two) and counting, that were very involved with the communist party.

Mmmmmmm still need more convincing?

You got it and after you're finshed reading that you can listen to Bill Ayers and do a little math and even YOU should be able to figure out that NOT ONLY has Obama NOT been Honest with us, you know the Americans he is supposed to take an Oath if elected to defend against all enemies, yeah That guy. It should come as an epiphaney that THIS GUY HAS MORE DIRTY LAUNDRY then your entire laundry hamper of skivies Mayberry!

www.familysecuritymatters.org...

Now we have the matter of his kindergarten fiasco which again you use the same tactics to wash the stain clean but a hash mark in your skivies don't come out that easy without bleach and YOU forgot the bleach as I expected you would not citing the actual bill in all its incriminationg glory.

Now my question is, when was the last time YOU thought a child predator about to have sex with a kindergartner would oblige the toddlers request he wear a condom before sodomizing the youngster?

Yeah THAT is just what Obama expects us to believe if I am to listen to you Mayberry.

This has been discussed and debunked on many other threads here on ATS. You can also google if you had any interest in accuracy or truth...which I doubt. I am getting tired of doing it for you.


This has been debunked?????? What are YOU talking about Mayberry?

Unlike YOU I like to see the original Documents, the original Bills he has or has not voted on and the actual law suits filed against him!

Clickety Click

Again Mayberry YOU miss the POINT! The point is WHY does it take a damn Law suit to get what ALL of us deserve and what is Constitutionally mandated he provide as PROOF of who the hell he is !

READ IT! ALL OF IT! You will see clicking on the numbers themselves just how hard Obama is trying to keep from showing the actual document!

WHY ? what is he hiding! This took a day for John McCain to provide.

So learn what the word debunking really means because if anyone has been debunked it is YOU and I'm getting tired of doing all the work witjh you just asking for more and more clues more evidence more reasonable doubt for having second thoughts about voting for this jerk

Need more because their is a mountain of it out there if you look hard enough. As for me not providing any proof,, I am THE ONLY one who HAS! and all you have done is squirm out of this the same way Obama does, buying opinions on snopes and the obama supported site fastcheck

Wow impressive,, if you're gullible

Your premise was not factual, nor was your conclusion. I don't care how much gobbledygook you throw around, if either the premise or conclusion of your argument is false, the argument is invalid. Period.

You didn't provide any fact. In your response to my post, the only fact that was provided was in the post of mine that you quoted.

Period.

Oh, and cast your false accusations elsewhere.

Period.

LOL hey,, didn't you already say all this and didn't I already answer it?

Has it occured to you that I put a LOT more time and effort into mayberry than I do you? Ya know why? Perhaps it is because HE has at least put forth an effort using new thoughts and ideas having a completely new and originally posted argument with a new challenge where he has even recognised some of the evidence put forth as something I can tell he has at least taken the time to research. Albeit not what i would agree is deep enough but what can be expected in most cases.

You on the other hand are still saying the same thing you did before.

That you disagree with me and you still don't know why because you haven't lifted a finger to prove your point all the while casting a blind eye to my own where Mayberry at least was wise enough to get that much respect in return from me and why I bother with him and are within smelling distance of just putting you on ignore.

Like I said, you're just saying more of the same thing you didn't know a thing about last time you said it so you aren't even in mayberrys league to garner my interest in any further dialogue. So why do you keep repeating yourself? Either engage the debate or lurk being silent.



You didn't provide any fact. In your response to my post, the only fact that was provided was in the post of mine that you quoted.


yeah I just did it again and again you said the same thing and that is the only thing we can agree on. You post is correct that you disagree and you got nothing to counter in the form of additional information other than your unmittigated un asked for opinion. It is a clever response but I have already seen ATS member Jphish use it long before you copied it

Oh you still have doubts do you LOL

Here ya go.


Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

(2) USE OF DEPOSITS.—Of the amount referred to in paragraph (1)—

(B) 35 percent shall be deposited into the Capital Magnet Fund established under section 1339 of that Act (12 U.S.C. 4569).



That is the actual language in the bill the republicans turned down but as you can see, this is all over the internet and I am sure you will be as angry as most are. I mean why should they get even MORE of our money ya know?

They already get 450 dollars of every single mortgage as it is already.

Powel

Powel resigned in shame and disgrace as a failed diplomat. He was a good millitary man, as a diplomat he failed. The last time he stood up with his reputation and asked people to believe him was at the UN with the faulty intelligence reports. Now the same people that hated him for it are madly in love with him, gotta love politics and the pure hypocricy.
Can it be that Powel sees more personal agenda forwarding by jumping on the 98% all black bandwagon. He's sure to get a cabinet seat by jumping through the beltway hoops with Obama. Conversely he would be seen as more evidence of McCain equal Bush if McCain groveled for his endorsement. McCain would lose with him onboard so he went where he only could.

Now that's an angle I haven't considered and you are right, that makes a lot of sense because I know if anyone would know about Obama it would be Powell so I know he isn't impressed with Obama's leadership skills but more the other


PULL OUT of IRAQ ????

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?

Body count:

In the last six months:

292 killed (murdered) in Chicago ;

221 killed in Iraq .

Chicago.... Who Runs it:
Senators: Barack Obama & Dick Durbin

Rep: Jesse Jackson Jr.,

Illinois Gov: Rod Blogojevich,

Illinois House leader Mike Madigan,

Illinois Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike),

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J. Daley)

.....our leadership in Illinois .....all Democrats.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .

Of course, they're all blaming each other!


Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country.

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. (Look 'em up if you want).

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois And he's gonna 'fix' Washington politics for us?

Wake Up America !

theres a lot of racism going on in this thread. It's sad. But people are showing their true colors here. Colin Powell is showing his political beliefs here. He raises a legit point in questioning McCains choice of VP. Hes not the first republican to do so thus far. This has nothing to do with being black white or green. Though it is an easy route to take for an argument as there is no other point to be made.


Sad really. I expect more than blatant racism from an ATS board. If you disagree with Powell's decision, attack his credibility. Please dont resort to having to play the race card.


I don't think that is it at all, what I see is nothing more than wet blankets crying racism at every opportunity whether it is real or imagined. I lived in Chicago during the 68 DNC and saw what racism is and this ain't it.

This is just the new liberal left's way of stirring the pot

This is good, since now that Obama has an ex-general on his side, Obama has some military support if Bush tries to stage an extended presidential extension.


One can only imagine what sick TPTB- influenced 'crisis' will come up after Obama is elected president... Or even McCain, for that matter.

I'm betting on a war with Russia. Even right now in Georgia there's some trouble between Georgian elements and Russian soldiers even though to my knowledge, Russian soldiers are leaving Georgia right now.

It seems troublesome elements on the Georgian side are trying to provoke a Russian response to give the West reason to attack, perhaps preferably before the elections!

Russia is a very vast country with a lot of resources and arable land, which perhaps will be very vital in 2 or 3 decades, and TPTB would dearly love to have some degree of control over its resources. I wonder how they will spin the coming (?) war.

I wonder what exactly Biden was talking about.

“It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you - not financially to help him - we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”


Perhaps there will be an attack on Iran, and Russia will avenge Iran, The PTB spins this war to their advantage, perhaps through false flag attacks to garner support. Who knows how many people end up dead after this

TPTB then either makes a lot of money and/or becomes more powerful out of this...

If a war happens, however the outcome, TPTB wins.

If there is a short quasi-war, TPTB will make money through defense/mining contracts. If there is a long war, then a lot of people will be dead, and a smaller populace is easier for TPTB to control.

They will win either way... Unless they're taken out, which is probably too late at this point in time. The elections are nearing.

McCain has more than enough brass to support him Grovey but that isn't the point. Of course we would sing his praises if he supported McCain because that would make sense and it would be consistent with his party his record etc but THIS time he has something to over ride all that and it is something we would have hoped he wouldn't have as the only one reason to vote for Obama. This time he has a Black alternative and it looks like he just couldn't pass that up.

You are engaging in rampant speculation about Powell's motives and it's honestly a bit shameful. Powell gave an eloquent and well thought out expression of his reasons for endorsing Obama. It's fine that you think he's being disingenuous, but the fact is you can't prove that he's lying about his reasons for supporting Obama. This sort of hyperbole is just harmful and to be quite honest gives the impression that you are less than colorblind, true or no. My two cents: move on. If you want to oppose Obama, do it with constructive debate rather than demeaning speculation.

Again you seem to give the Right Wing Propaganda machine credibility where others choose to think. I am done spending my time googling to refute things you are saying when you obviously are posting things you know to be false.

www.cbsnews.com...
In the end, how much of the bailout's potential profits are earmarked for ACORN? "NONE. ABSOLUTELY NONE. ALL FUNDS would go to state and local governments,"

State and local governments CAN then dole out the funds and could send money to ACORN IF THEY SO CHOOSE and if the organization's efforts meet the standards set out in the law.

"Are they worried that the Governor of Alaska and the Mayor of Wasilla will give money to Acorn?" he asked.

And the very same day, Obama said that Colin Powell will have a position in his administration.

Coincidence? I don't think so.

Colin Powell was a politician as an Army Officer (I served under him when he was a Major, and he was horribly political and a lousy leader). He is a politician to this day, and the ONLY thing he really gives a damn about is Colin Powell.

Obama can have him.

Colin Powell has earned the right to an opinion and not have idiots like yourself declare it racially motivated.

Very soon this political fever will break and we will have a new President.

MAINTAL...I would have respect for your opinion and view if you in any way appeared to value truth over agenda, but you have repeatedly demonstrated the opposite is true with you. Wanting to win is OK, Wanting to win at all costs is not..tell your candidate.

I hope you find your better self soon. It can't be healthy to carry all of that pessimism and anger.

As for me. I am going to let go and trust the American people. I think this election cycle has finally killed Rovian politics. I am done with political debate for the time being.

I voted today. I will leave you with this from 4 years ago......

******Obama at the 2004 convention*******

Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes.

Well, I say to them tonight, there's not a liberal America and a conservative America; there's the United States of America.

There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America.

The pundits, the pundits like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue States: red states for Republicans, blue States for Democrats. But I've got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the blue states, and we don't like federal agents poking around our libraries in the red states.

We coach little league in the blue states and, yes, we've got some gay friends in the red states.

There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq, and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq.

We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.

In the end, that's what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism, or do we participate in a politics of hope?

It's fine that you think he's being disingenuous, but the fact is you can't prove that he's lying about his reasons for supporting Obama. This sort of hyperbole is just harmful and to be quite honest gives the impression that you are less than colorblind, true or no. My two cents: move on. If you want to oppose Obama, do it with constructive debate rather than demeaning speculation.


This goes back to what mayberry said about abstraction in his speech where all the reasons he gave were level 4 abstractions and why you keep saying the same drivel about his giveing an eloquent well thought out speech about it. Well thought out yes in that he was careful NOT to say because he is black. That I am sure you'll agree would have been stupid of powell to say so he didn't and any other reasons he gave were all full of colorful pretty adjectives but NONE had anything to do with things like EXPERIENCE, QUALIFICATIONS, ACCOMPLISHMENTS, etc. you know the meat and potatos kind of thing you'd expect from someone like powell. So one can only speculate why he would have over looked all that and his being Black is the most obvious item on the list. Unless of course you really think Powell is that stupid to vote for him merely because Obama is "Charming" .

Powell may be Racist but he aint stupid.

As for the harm this discussion may cause?

You ever listen to an Obama ad ?

TALK ABOUT MIS INFORMATION

Colin Powell has earned the right to an opinion and not have idiots like yourself declare it racially motivated.


I got about this far in your post and realized I am talking to a child calling me names now and read no further so whatever it was you had to say, I am sure I didn't miss much. I never said Powell doesn't have a right to an opinion nor do I have a problem with his opinion no matter how he arrived at it including whether or not his opinion was predicated on race. YOU seem to have a problem with it but I don't.

Had Powell not been so wise as to know their are still people in this world that would get upset if Obama's being Black had anything to do with another Black person using that as a reason to finally see one of his own be President, he may have actually said it but not all can see it the same way affirmative action works, without saying it is racist in an evil way and no other way.

James Cone creator of the Black Liberation Church and Rev. Wrights Mentor said, "Yes Blacks DO hate white people, but that's not racism" No one likes to think of their own brand of prejudice against or Bias for someone as "Racist" but to some degree we all do that in one direction or the other.

I think when we can admit that to ourselves is the day it really WON'T matter that much anymore. Until then we will be muddying the waters in Political Correctness.

I may have called you mayberry because I liked you, but I never called you an idiot maybereal11. I must say, I'm a little disappointed.

Just out of curiosity,, Ill bet this whole time you envisioned yourself talking to a white guy. Be interesting to know.

Again you seem to give the Right Wing Propaganda machine credibility where others choose to think. I am done spending my time googling to refute things you are saying when you obviously are posting things you know to be false.


www.cbsnews.com...
In the end, how much of the bailout's potential profits are earmarked for ACORN? "NONE. ABSOLUTELY NONE. ALL FUNDS would go to state and local governments,"


Yeah Mayberry BECAUSE THAT BILL FAILED TO GET PASSED JUST LIKE I SAID READ MY POST!


There you go again mayberry, do you not read what you post? Or did you leave the rest of that article out on purpose?

You know the part that say THIS!


"If Rep. Frank wants to keep ACORN in the bill he can secure the necessary Democratic votes for passage because he'll need every one of them."


Now why do you think he said that? Do you even know? Jeez man WAKE UP! Now you're just embarrassing yourself. That final statement proves what I said was true! Do you remember asking me to prove their was legislation being discussed about ACORN being part of the bail out and I said the republicans wouldn't go for it? The link you just used to prove me wrong only verifies what I told you and the language in the bill on that site was the same I showed you. Here Mayberry tell attorney Greta Van susterin that shei is telling false information or here I guess the Wall Street Journal is lying too! online.wsj.com...


Above and beyond that is who do we know that took the second higest contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? which is who we are bailing out.

OBAMA that's who!

and Who do we know that stands to gain the most from ACORN who is already under investigation for registration fraud

OBAMA! That's who!

Now who was it that tried to stop Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by presenting a bill to tighten it up?

McCain That's who!

and who stopped it ?

OBAMA! That's who!

What sort of person would like to see our capitalist form of Government move to one where WE end up paying for everything in the economy? A Socialist That's who! and what name do we know that has more mentors and is in more communist organizations and the most leftist voting record of anyone in the senate?

OBAMA that's who!

Your vote just brought us THAT much further into Socialism Mayberry and what is the sad thing is you all have blamed an American Veteran a POW who again by stopping that bill that had 20% earmarked for ACORN

What are you people THINKING! Quit listening to the freakin news and READ THE ACTUAL DOCUMENTS! THE ACTUAL VOTING RECORD!

QUIT THINKING EVERYONE ON BILL MAHR AND MAD TV IS RIGHT!

I notice you had nothing to say about me proving you wrong about every single issue mayberry and even THIS one you are proven wrong once again! OBAMA is WRONG as WRONG can be and God help us if he gets in Office with NO counter balance and checks to stop him. Has it not occured to you how he is getting so much money? He isn't getting contributions from individuals man he is taking money FROM ENTIRE NATIONS! and they are COMMUNIST and Socialist Governments! Mafia People like Tony Rezko! Terrorists Like Ayers, Communists like Saul Alinsky they have all funded this guy up the ying yang! So far everything I have shown you is true and you continue to get beat by the facts just like every Obama supporter I have encountered and debated and you would rather throw this country under the bus than admit you're wrong. UNBELIEVABLE!



Look do you think Bush was a REPUBLICAN?

NOOOOO he isn't! Take a look at what the news is calling this economic probelm now,, "THE GLOBAL MONEY CRISIS" now what do you think that is a sign of? Ever hear of the "NWO"?
