Ok, please show us where McCain attended a big Jew bash party. Show us where McCain was schmoozing with terrorists. Show us the tape that the Obama media is suppressing for reasons that can only be to hide damaging information on the tape.

I refuse to believe that the L.A times would NOT print a story like this, especially if it were true.


Uhhh, they did print a story on it. Thats what this whole thread is about. Its the tape that the article is about that they wont release.


Also, a simple search for the guys name will tell you who he is... lol...

This goes a long way in explaining how a nobody can become a major player (and I stress PLAYER) in only 4 years, while at the same time not doing the job that the people allegedly elected him for, but instead using "company time" to hoist himself up the next rung on the ladder.

All this time, I thought it was only his "charisma" holding sway over the Masses of glassy-eyed zombie Obamanoids that seem to be popping up everywhere (has anyone checked for pods in their neighborhood?). Anyone with half a brain can see it was not substance. All one has to do is watch the sidestep dancing Obama does whenever asked a direct question. The key is that you've got to be able to THINK. I've watched dozens of his speeches, looking for substance, and all I've gotten so far is reminders of all those black and white newsreels from Germany in the thirties - you know, the little man with the funny moustache at the podium, while masses of adoring people looking for hope hang onto his every honey-flavored but insubstantial word. I ain't surprised that Obama got the reception he did in Germany. That's happened there before.

I did, however, wonder at the crowd that greeted him in tiny Lebanon, Virginia. population of the entire town is around 2500, but Obama had closer to 2700 folks packed into that little high school gym. It was only later that I discovered that he had supporters bussed in from as far away as Raleigh, North Carolina, and Knoxville Tennessee. He has a track record of that sort of thing, apparently.

McCain Rashid Khalidi Connection



A 1998 tax filing for the McCain-led group shows a $448,873 grant to Khalidi's Center for Palestine Research and Studies for work in the West Bank. (See grant number 5180, "West Bank: CPRS" on page 14 of this PDF.)

The relationship extends back as far as 1993, when John McCain joined IRI as chairman in January. Foreign Affairs noted in September of that year that IRI had helped fund several extensive studies in Palestine run by Khalidi's group, including over 30 public opinion polls and a study of "sociopolitical attitudes."

Of course, there's seemingly nothing objectionable with McCain's organization helping a Palestinian group conduct research in the West Bank or Gaza. But it does suggest that McCain could have some of his own explaining to do as he tries to make hay out of Khalidi's ties to Obama.



Something about casting stones comes to mind.


Here is the difference though YOU CAN ASK McCAIN and as to his support of Israel he has never reneged on that. Obama on the other hand can't even keep his word on public financing. He'll renege on most everything he says. I don't think he will have any problem at all especially with a filibuster proof house and senate. Bush may wipe his butt with the constitution but THIS guy will flush it down the toilet once and for all with the same conscience he does born alive babies and gold fish.

That is it exactly Dave, everyone KNOWS this guy is dirty and nobody seems to want to go AFTER this guy and it's like I am in the twilightzone here. I mean when you have people where even Biden noticed the busing in of people from other states where Obama was 10 points behind in some poles coming and creating lanslide victories over hillary. The way he got his senate seat was just plane devise not by winning fair and square because this guy is doesn't have the class to win that way. No he is going to do it by any means necessary legal or illegal just like this

Palin accuses Obama of ties to second 'radical professor'




Gov. Sarah Palin on Wednesday said Sen. Barack Obama has ties to a Columbia University professor who she said is "a former spokesperson for the Palestinian Liberation Organization."



The Obama campaign said on its Web site that "ugly insinuations about Barack Obama's relationship with a former neighbor and university colleague ... are completely false." The professor has denied he was a PLO spokesman. Palin said her assertion "is not negative campaigning to call someone out on their record." "It seems that there is yet another radical professor from the neighborhood who spent a lot of time with Barack Obama going back several years," Palin said at an event in Bowling Green, Ohio. "This is important because his associate, Rashid Khalidi ... in addition to being a political ally of Barack Obama, he's a former spokesperson for the Palestinian Liberation Organization."

McCain Demands L.A. Times Release Video

Wednesday, October 29, 2008 8:50 AM

By: Jim Meyers Article Font Size



The John McCain campaign is demanding that the Los Angeles Times release a videotape showing Barack Obama at an event in Chicago honoring a Palestinian activist who reportedly served as a spokesman for Yasser Arafat.

As Newsmax reported on Tuesday, the 2003 event was a farewell party for Rashid Khalidi, who was leaving the University of Chicago to take a position at Columbia University in New York.

Obama, then an Illinois state senator, lavished praise on Khalidi at the party, as did unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, according to Andrew C. McCarthy, contributing editor at National Review, who disclosed Khalidi’s link to “master terrorist” Arafat. The Times confirmed in April that it had a copy of the videotape.

Several hours after the Newsmax story appeared, McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb said: “A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provoke a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi.”

The videotape, he said, could show how Obama responded to a poem recited by a young Palestinian at the party accusing Israel of “terrorism” in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, “then you will never see a day of peace.”

Goldfarb called the poem “hate speech,” adding: “The election is one week away, and it’s unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job — make information public.”

The newspaper hasn’t explained why it won’t release the video, according to Ben Smith of Politico.com.

Times spokeswoman Nancy Sullivan told Smith: “When we reported on the tape six months ago, that was our full report.”

Does any of this remind anyone else of the Wizard of OZ. I mean with all the denials about every thing from voting records to denials about actual interviews."I am the Great and Powerful OZ,pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" We will never see the true "Wizard"(Obama) until after the election.Then when the curtain comes up and the truth is out there,people will say what the fu...Where did this come from?

Obama wouldn't pass top secret government clearance with such associations. And yet, he can be POTUS?



Beyond Obama's words... Khalidi himself, ABC news and The new York Daily News and any other reporter who has looked into it....but I am sure you think some right wing blogger more credible than those "journalists" with there sense of "Journalistic integrity" and their need for checking actual sources and such..

Lying is not OK.

This kind of BS is not OK. John McCain has a long list of questionable "associates"...but who cares. I am concerned about WHO JOHN MCCAIN IS! Not who his kids classmates parents are or his neighbors are. Geez...Can't the GOP run a campaign with any dignity or sense of honor?

Also...YES. I have had several friends recieve high level security clearances and know the process well.

The government isn't as dim witted as the McCain campaign assumes the public is and Obama knowing Khalidi would in no way disqualify him for any level of clearance.

This is an obvious and desperate attempt by the McCain campaign to keep Florida.

Claiming Obama is anti-israel. Khalidi is a professor, middle eastern scholar and former nieghbor of Obama AND HAS DENIED being a spokesperson for the PLO. I'd be interested to see any hard evidence to the contrary...till then I trust him more than John McCain and his campaigns desperate agenda. They have shown themselves wholey these last few weeks.

Principles only mean something if you stick by them when they are inconvenient. John McCain has shown himself to believe just the opposite.

In the face of challenge...abandon all you stand for..

Alas where is the McCain of old? The man I used to respect.

Qbama spokesman Hari Sevugan emails this response to the Khalidi attack. “This is just another recycled, manufactured controversy from the McCain campaign to distract voters’ attention from John McCain’s lock-step support for George Bush’s economic policies."

firstread.msnbc.msn.com...


BuWha HA HA HA HA HA OMG this is rich

How many times more scandals is this guy have to be caught up in before the Obamanoids GET A CLUE! How can you NOT call this stuff into serious question after what we have all been through? Seriously all you Obamanoids what have you got to say for yourselves?

He won the Debates?

Oh Rly!

It isn't till AFTER the debates we start seeing who REALLY won.

Forget about how patient and steady handed Obama looks and sounds, Forget about his slick talking smooth silver tongued semantics when this guy is Vogue on the outside and so Vague on the inside.

Obama is nothing but an empty suit who speaks out Both sides of his mouth. As later we find out more and more that it is true, after all. That all the things they say McCain was lying about are not lies afterall but the truth. That all the so called negative attack ads are not so negative but the truth!

They are public service announcements warning voters just what kind of shifty scaming Obama really is and sure enough as much as the Obama camp wants to call this the "Politics of distraction" trying to keep McCain in lockstep with Bush failed economic policies, lets get one thing straight shall we,,

IT IS THE CONGRESS that holds the purse strings!

And who are they for the past few years?

while McCain tried like hell to stop this economic mess, we actually have "The one" we've all been waiting for, CAUSING MOST OF IT!

JUST LIKE HE DID IN CHICAGO where the state's 44 Billion in debt thanks to Obama and Durden for "Redistributing" the wealth"

So QUIT BLAMING McCain, and lets see who REALLY helped the most when it came to screwing things up and LO and Behold,, wouldn't ya know it!

It is the radical loving freind of Chicago Mobsters, Marxists and Muslim Terrorists himself "The one" the ONLY,

Barack "Hollywood" Hussein Obama!

This guy encouraged the crash and did everything he could to STOP McCain from fixing it!

He went as far as breaking all the rules the same way we see him trying to prevent the only man who has ever really fought for you to become President by breaking all the rules from not providing his damn Birth certificate to out and out Fraud!

Registration Fraud!

Voter Fraud!

and Oh we have a litany of excuses from the Obamanoids like mayberry like " but he has apologized for that" or "he has already said they are not his advisors" or "he has said those communist flags hanging in the campaign offices didn't belong to him" or "how was he supposed to know Rev Wright was a racist after twenty years of I hate white people sermons" Or "I didn't know it was a living human being after the infant was placed in a broom closet with someone finding it eight hours later still alive crying" "That kind of complex understanding is above my pay grade"

We have seen him Campaigning for Odinga in Kenya, paling around with ayers and Tony the "Racketeer" Rezko

We have seen he is in fact a member of several socialist organizations in Illinois where he got caught trying to cover it up.

We have seen this man invest oodles of money into spurious realestate not to mention $800,000 into ACORN and all are under investigation with his buddy of 17 years Rezko in prison.

Wow! and you STILL want to call this the Politics of DISTRACTION!

Well I got news for ya,, I'M DISTRACTED!

and I'm Voting for McCain!

Spare me anymore of the excuses mayberry I have had eight years of a liar for a President, I don't want to see the one the democrats have that can lie even more! At least with Bush he could always use stupidity as an excuse but THIS guy is a Harvard Law School Graduate so he is without excuse. Lawyer or Liar same thing as they always say they sound the same for a reason.



Obama Encouraged Risky Fannie, Freddie Loans

Wednesday, October 29, 2008 2:45 PM

By: Jim Meyers Article Font Size




The John McCain campaign has issued a release pointing to a Wall Street Journal editorial questioning Barack Obama’s stance on Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and subprime mortgages.

The editorial published on Wednesday notes that, during the Oct. 7 presidential debate, when John McCain said Obama had encouraged Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make risky loans, Obama replied that he “never promoted Fannie Mae.” He also stated: “Two years ago I said that we’ve got a subprime lending crisis that has to be dealt with.”

Obama said: “I wrote to [Treasury] Secretary [Henry] Paulson, I wrote to Federal Reserve Chairman [Ben] Bernanke, and told them this is something we have to deal with, and nobody did anything about it.”

The Journal observed: “Mr. Obama's March 2007 letter included a stirring call to ‘assess options’ and boldly suggested that the two men ‘facilitate a serious conversation’ about housing. He was even brave enough to suggest that ‘the relevant private sector entities and regulators’ might be able to provide ‘targeted responses.’ Then in paragraph four, the Harvard-trained lawyer dropped his bombshell: a suggestion that various interest groups get together to ‘consider’ best practices in mortgage lending.

“Some may find it hard to believe that Mr. Obama had nothing to show for this herculean effort to shake up Washington. They may be shocked as well that such passionate language didn't move the Fed and Treasury to action. For our part, we note that nowhere in his letter did Mr. Obama suggest that the government should stop subsidizing loans to people who can't repay them.”

In fact, Obama said in a September 2007 speech: “Subprime lending started out as a good idea, helping Americans buy homes who previously couldn’t afford to.”

And he voted against a bill, which McCain co-sponsored, to reform the way Fannie and Freddie did business.

It also might be noted that two former Fannie Mae CEOs, Franklin Raines and James Johnson, have had roles in Obama’s presidential campaign.

Raines advised the campaign on housing matters, according to the Washington Post. He was paid $20 million by Fannie Mae in 2003 and left under a cloud of alleged corruption and illegal accounting.

Johnson helped Obama select his vice presidential running mate. Johnson received millions of dollars in hidden income from the corporation, according to the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight’s May 2006 report on mismanagement and corruption inside Fannie Mae.

Obama received more than $126,000 in political donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and McCain declared at the debate that Obama was the second largest recipient of campaign cash from the government mortgage giants.

The Journal editorial concludes: “If Barack Obama wants to write any more letters, he should urge his colleagues in Washington to focus on the causes of this crisis, not the effects. Unlike Senators, Presidents are expected to solve problems, not merely write about them.”

I would suspect the tape probably shows a room full of people bashing Israel.
What else could it be?

It's understandable why Obama would not want to be in any way tied to that event.

"Journalistic ethics" is now an oxymoron.

Are you saying that they cancel each other out then? I really don't find any humor in any of this. This is important and yeah if McCain did that he should explain why.....but for people to use the reasoning..."Well McCain did this!" doesn't make it any less of an issue. The tape needs to be released. There is no way around it. The public deserves to see it.

I just thought of a new term....i think...
