Debbie Schlussel: B Hussein O Pants on Fire: Stark Evidence that Obama Lied About Rev. Jeremiah “Shabbos” Wright AND Rezko

By Debbie Schlussel

If you’re one of the Pied Piper followers who actually believes Barack Hussein Obama’s lies that he and Michelle Hussein Obama had no idea of the hatred for Jews, America, White people, and even the kitchen sink after over two decades of a tight relationship with this man who married them, perhaps this quote from over a year ago in the New York Times might persuade you otherwise (then again, probably not, since logic never enters into the I Heart Obama equation):

According to the pastor, Mr. Obama then told him, “You can get kind of rough in the sermons, so what we’ve decided is that it’s best for you not to be out there in public.”

Senator Obama is proud of his pastor and his church, but because of the type of attention it was receiving on blogs and conservative talk shows, he decided to avoid having statements and beliefs being used out of context and forcing the entire church to defend itself.

Hmmm . . . what statements? What beliefs? I thought he just found this stuff out last week, over a year later. Right?

One more time, this is from over a year ago, from March 6, 2007. Obama did not dispute this. It B Hussein O’s pastor saying Obama was well aware of his nuclear-explosion-and-brimstone sermons. And get this, he hates Jews, but then invokes the Yiddish reference to the Jewish Sabbath–“Shabbos” (uh, no thanks, Rev. Wright). And the anti-White stuff was in this article. So, Obama was not aware of this NYTimes article about his own campaign from over a year ago? Hello . . . . :

The Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., senior pastor of the popular Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and spiritual mentor to Senator Barack Obama, thought he knew what he would be doing on Feb. 10, the day of Senator Obama’s presidential announcement.After all, back in January, Mr. Obama had asked Mr. Wright if he would begin the event by delivering a public invocation.

But Mr. Wright said Mr. Obama called him the night before the Feb. 10 announcement and rescinded the invitation to give the invocation.
“Fifteen minutes before Shabbos I get a call from Barack,” Mr. Wright said in an interview on Monday, recalling that he was at an interfaith conference at the time. “One of his members had talked him into uninviting me,” Mr. Wright said, referring to Mr. Obama’s campaign advisers.

Some black leaders are questioning Mr. Obama’s decision to distance his campaign from Mr. Wright because of the campaign’s apparent fear of criticism over Mr. Wright’s teachings, which some say are overly Afrocentric to the point of excluding whites.

Remember, this article is from over a year ago. Obama knew then. And he’s lying now. Don’t elect this liar for Prez.

Then, there’s this other nugget from today’s Wall Street Journal about Tony Rezko. In addition to Obama admitting over the weekend that he underestimated the amount of contributions donated to him through Tony Rezko by $100,000 (Rezko’s peeps donated $250,000 to Obama, not “just” $150,000), Rezko never gave a dime to Obama:

Mr. Rezko hasn’t donated to Sen. Obama’s presidential campaign.

That’s of interest, since–as I’ve noted–the majority of the donors to Obama, that came to Obama from Antoin “Tony” Rezko are Muslims and Arabs. Since Rezko didn’t donate a dime directly, Rezko apparently got the word from Obama that he couldn’t, himself, donate to Obama, and Obama apparently put that word out and let it be known that he could take money indirectly.

If he wasn’t going to accept money from Rezko, how did he know that $250,000 worth of donors were connected to Rezko and who they were? Because he WAS, indeed, going to accept money from Rezko and he did. That’s how. And he got caught. Oh, and when is he going to give “the house that Tony bought”–“Rezko Manor”–back?

Obama cannot have it both ways. He’s repeatedly changed his story about when he learned of Rezko’s criminal shenanigans for which he was later indicted. He clearly was aware of it, even at the time he accepted the structured transaction for the Obama house, “Rezko Manor.” And even if he wasn’t, he was certainly aware of it at the point at which he announced he was running for Prez, last year. And even after that he knowingly took money garnered for him by Rezko, even if Rezko himself did not donate. This was no accident. It was all very clearly by design.

That is proof that Obama and Rezko knew of the source of the money, but were trying to hide and launder it from public scrutiny of the true donor. That the conduit donors of the $250K were mostly Muslim Arabs should be a hint on which side the Obama bread is buttered.

Can you afford to have this lying con artist occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

I cannot. And that’s why, for the first time in my life, I will identify as a Democrat to vote in the Michigan Primary redo, so that I can vote for Hillary Rodham Cankles Clinton. She’s the less evil of two lessers.

Obama Under Fire As Personal Ties Stir Controversy

Who is Barack Obama?

Who is Barack Obama?

Who is Barack Obama? The truth is that neither Sen. Obama’s supporters nor opponents can answer that question. We know he is bright, eloquent and charismatic. But if he were elected president of the United States, he would be the least known man to be elected in modern American history, perhaps in all of American history.

That is why the remarks and views of those closest to Sen. Obama take on much more significance than the remarks and views of the people closest to Sens. Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Whether we like or dislike either of those two candidates, we have every reason to believe we know them.

The people closest to Sen. Obama — and by his own account the two greatest living influences on his thinking — are his wife Michelle and his pastor, Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. And each of them has made comments about America that could dissuade Americans from voting for Sen. Obama at least until they can get to know him better.

On Feb. 18, in Milwaukee, Wis., Michelle Obama announced, “For the first time in my adult life I am proud to be an American.” Anyone in public life must be given slack regarding comments they later regret. But on the same day in another speech in Madison, Wis., Mrs. Obama said virtually the same thing: “For the first time in my adult lifetime I am really proud to be an American.”

Sen. Obama later explained his wife’s remarks this way: “What she meant was, this is the first time that she’s been proud of the politics of America.”

I do not believe that Sen. Obama’s explanation is valid. I think Mrs. Obama said what she meant and meant what she said. But even if Sen. Obama’s reformulation of his wife’s remarks is valid, the fact remains that the closest person in the world to Barack Obama has never been proud of the politics of America, that it took her husband’s primary wins to change a lifelong lack of pride in anything about America’s political life. That’s troubling on its own — for his and her contempt for American politics. And it is even more troubling for its narcissism — do Sen. Obama and his wife believe that only his success has made American politics worthy of pride?

We are therefore confronted with either a contempt for America — if the original statement reflects Michelle Obama’s thinking — or some real narcissism on the part of both Sen. and Mrs. Obama. That narcissism is easily demonstrated. Just imagine if Hillary Clinton or John McCain had said they supported their spouse’s view that until their primary victories, they had never been proud of their country’s politics. Either of them would have looked foolish before the American people. That is why many believe Sen. Obama has been getting a relatively free ride in the American media, which largely adore him.

But it gets worse. The other closest person in Sen. Obama’s life, the man whom the senator calls his mentor, the man who married Barack and Michelle Obama, who baptized his daughters, who inspired the title of his book “The Audacity of Hope,” and whose church Sen. Obama has been attending for 20 years, has been a voice of anti-white racism and anti-American venom. In a widely viewed sermon from 2003, the Rev. Wright shouted from his pulpit, among other things:

The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.

He then went on to blame America for 9/11 since America has been engaged in state terrorism that has murdered far more innocents than were killed in America on 9/11. We should recall that when some conservative Christian leaders suggested that America had in some ways brought on 9/11 by its sins, these people were read the riot act by the mainstream media.

According to the Associated Press, Wright “also gave a sermon in December comparing Obama to Jesus, promoting his candidacy and criticizing his rival, Hillary Rodham Clinton. ‘Barack knows what it means to be a black man living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people,’ Wright told a cheering congregation. ‘Hillary can never know that. Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger.'”

Sen. Obama says he was not present when the Rev. Wright said these things.

Maybe so. But it is hard to believe that Sen. Obama has never heard such things from his Afro-centric minister. Additionally, one must ask why a man raised entirely by a white mother and white grandparents after being abandoned as a small child by his black father would choose to identify so fully with such a pastor. Coupled with his wife’s remarks, fair-minded people — whether Democrat or Republican — may well conclude that until we know more about who Sen. Barack Obama is, he ought not be the Democrats’ candidate for president of the United States. His two greatest living influences have raised red flags.

In fact, if Shelby Steele (who also has a white mother and black father) is right, we should not only be waiting until we better know who Barack Obama is. We probably need to wait until Barack Obama better knows who he is.
