Red Rover, Red Rover can Rashid Khalidi come over? 

Obama’s list of friends that he used to play with keeps coming back to haunt him.  MSM- Main Street Media portrays Obama like a cult leader, foraging his way through the USA, spreading his message of a redistribution of wealth,  rather than focusing on how Obama got to the Democratic Nomination in the first place.  Obama did not win the popular vote or the electoral vote, he was duly appointed by Pelosi. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/10/28/obamas-job-application-denied/

In another fine example of his character, while Obama has admitted previous associations with Rashid Khalidi there is now more proof as to how close the relationship was.  The LA Times said it obtained a video of Obama delivering an in-person testimonial in 2003 at the farewell party of anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, who at the time was departing the University of Chicago for a new teaching position at Columbia University.  The LA Times says it will not release the video or its contents to the media. Guests besides Obama at the dinner for Khalidi included former Weather Underground members Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn.

http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/10/fox-news-reports-on-la-times.html “A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb.  “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,” he said.  But then McCain changed course…

“I changed my mind, and I want to thank you,” said Sen. McCain in a letter to editors at the Times. “You folks go ahead, stick with your bold decision to keep that video secret. After all, what’s a free press for, if not to withhold news that people don’t really need, or that might cause discomfort just a few days before an election?” http://www.scrappleface.com/?p=3175

http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=M2FjMDY1ZWMwNWE0NTRhZjY0NGJmZTY1MWQ1YjVhN2M=”Khalidi is not distancing himself from his past. “Consistent with what you’d expect from someone who justified PLO attacks on civilians in Israel and Lebanon from 1976 to 1982, Khalidi routinely refers to Israel as a “racist” and “apartheid” state, and professes to believe in a “one-state” solution to the conflict.The Khalidis and Obamas were good friends. In his capacity as a director of the Woods Fund, Obama in 2001 and 2002 steered $75,000 to the Arab American Action Network, the brainchild of Rashid and Mona Khalidi. According to an L.A. Times account of the dinner, Obama mentioned that he and Michelle had been frequent dinner guests at the Khalidi home (just another guy in the neighborhood?) and that the Khalidis had even baby-sat for the Obama girls.”

Here we have a wanna be leader of the free world, Barack Obama at a roast and toast for former PLO leader Khalidi who has made clear his opinion of Israel, and the media won’t release it.  In more from the National Review Online, “Obama told the crowd that those talks with the Khalidis had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots. . . . It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table” but around “this entire world.”

Here is a consitsant reminder for Voters, Obama lists among his associates not only Rashidconsistent Khalidi, but” Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, and how could we forget the man of the hour, His holiness in hate, the mentor to Barack….Mr. Wright…..” http://www.floppingaces.net/2008/03/23/the-obama-associates/:

If Obama is nothing else, he is guilty by association of choosing less than reputable figures to guide his political career and influence his policies for the future of America.  Is there anyone associated with Obama who is not a crook? http://www.hillaryclintonforum.net/discussion/archive/index.php/f-113.html  Right about now, Hillary and Bill must be doing the happy dance in their choice to at the very least distance themselves from Obama, even while being forced by the DNC to support him. 

“The long list of evil Obama associates seems to grow daily and although Obama has spent the last few years dodging questions, ignoring demands for full open disclosure of his past and making excuses about a plethora of bad associations, one fact seems glaringly obvious…Obama has far more to hide than to share!  http://www.zimbio.com/pilot?ZURL=%2FBarack%2BObama%2Farticles%2F2065%2FAdvanced%2BGuilt%2BAssociation%2BBarack%2BObama&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freerepublic.com%2Ffocus%2Ff-news%2F2090301%2Fposts

When Nixon uttered his famous “I am not a crook” line, nobody took him seriously. While he didn’t personally break into the Democratic Party offices at the Watergate Hotel, he surrounded himself with the crooks and scumbags who did. http://www.brainshavings.com/2008/10/barack-obamas-friends-and-associates.html

The actions of The LA Times are dispicable and a slap in the face to freedom of the press and down right good journalism.  If the LA Times never releases the video it really won’t matter as Main Stream America and good old boys like “Joe the Plumber” are coming in force to question the Obama sales pitch.  Joe was on Fox recently talking about his opinion on Obama’s stance on Israel. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/28/foxs-shepard-smith-forced_n_138674.html  “Anyway, five minutes with Joe The Plumber had Shepard Smith so frustrated that the Fox anchor felt compelled to issue a disclaimer, immediately following the segment, pushing back on any notion that Obama would mean the “death of Israel,” saying: “I just want to make this 100 percent perfectly clear — Barack Obama has said repeatedly and demonstrated repeatedly that Israel will always be a friend of the United States, no matter what happens once he becomes President of the United States.”  It is hard to fathom a President Obama enhancing a peace process for Isreal when he is friendly with the likes of Rashid Khalidi.     

http://townhall.com/columnists/FrankJGaffneyJr/2008/10/06/characters_count?page=full goes on about Characters do Count.  In Obama-land, Israel will always be a friend to him and America- just like, other radicals like Rezko, Auchi, Odinga, AyersdespicableIsrael, Farrakhan, and Reverend Wrong. 

Obama has purchased a half hour of television time, scheduled to air tonight, Wednesday, October 29, 2008.  The ad is slated to air on MSNBC, making it the only cable news outlet to run the ad. NBC, Fox, CBS, and Univision will also broadcast the ad.  CNN declined to accept the infomercial.  A big pat on the back to CNN for doing it’s job, reporting the news- however slanted it may be. CBS, NBC and Fox will pocket $1 million per network for the half hour of paid advertisement. There are also rumors circulating that Fox moved the start time of the World Series Coverage, but Fox Network says it did not move the World Series for the campaign ad, and that the first pitch was never slated for earlier than 8:30 PM. “

It comes as no surprise that The New York Times is endorsing Obama for President.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/24/opinion/24fri1.html?_r=1&ref=opinion&oref=slogin

“As tough as the times are, the selection of a new president is easy. After nearly two years of a grueling and ugly campaign, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois has proved that he is the right choice to be the 44th president of the United States.”  “Mr. McCain, whom we chose as the best Republican nominee in the primaries, has spent the last coins of his reputation for principle and sound judgment to placate the limitless demands and narrow vision of the far-right wing,” it said.

It is almost laughable that readers of the NY Times, didn’t already know that the paper itself, its editors and journalist are all biased against John McCain and have supported Obama from the first days he announced his candidacy.  Just this week the company, reported a 16 percent drop in advertising revenue at its news media group, also said it might write down as much as $150 million at its New England operations, underscoring the dismal state of newspaper advertising.  It isn’t just dismal advertising dollars, readers have already gotten the news dismal news somewhere else long before the New York Times comes out.  Between the net and TV, the pubic who might care about an issue finds stories everywhere else but in national newspapers.

In the case of The Wall Street Journal http://online.wsj.com/public/us , readers do manage to get features that are related to Wall Street and the finance industry. News articles, are in fact news and editorial opinions are found in the editorial section. 

If there are any undecided voters out there, certainly an endorsement of either candidate by The New York Times is not going to make a difference with less than two weeks to go until the election.  If you are still undecided, I suggest you do not vote.  http://news.aol.com/political-machine/2008/10/16/the-myth-of-the-undecideds/ Americans have endured two years of this getting to know the candidate through every means necessary.  Town Halls Meetings, debates, campaign ads, interviews, the web, blogs, etc.   I know enough that I question every reform platform and motive Obama has.  As a duly registered voter, I also question McCain’s policies and prior voting records but what I do not question is is his motive.  To both Obama and McCain, I question why 40% of workers do not qualify to pay taxes in the first place and why?   http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/13/obama-tax-cut-refunds-those-who-dont-pay/ 

http://www.thebostonchannel.com/presidential-race/index.html is a reasonable place to compare the candidates. 

Educated voters by now have heard more than enough to make an educated decision in the voting booth.   In the long run, The Times have done its audience a favor in clearly labeling itself the slanted liberal paper the rest of us always knew it to be.

 NBC News and the group Election Protection are partnering up on election day to provide Americans with a completely slanted, liberal, Obama supporting socialitstic “spread the wealth around” view of Election Day news coverage.  

http://www.866ourvote.org/newsroom/press-releases?id=0026 “With less than 14 days before Election Day, NBC News and Election Protection will be joining forces to help voters ensure that their vote will count. The news leader and the nation’s largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition will work together to promote the 1-866-OUR-VOTEHotline and http://www.866ourvote.org [sic-  http://www.866ourvote.org./ ] website so that voters can receive live assistance if they encounter problems, and access the information before they head to the polls now through Election Day.

(Jonah) “Goldman along with Barbara Arnwine and John Strasburger will offer regular updates on the “state of voting”, share their expert opinions on the voting issues dominating news headlines, and provide insight and advice for how voters and lawmakers can minimize the barriers voters face when registering and casting a ballot. ….Election Protection has more than 100 partners at the national, state and local level and is providing live voter protection services now through Election Day across all 50 states. On November 4, Election Protection will mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers, including 10,000 legal volunteers to monitor polling places, educate voters, facilitate a dialogue .”  A dialogue with Obama supporters leading the way.

100 Parners all for the most part support the platform of Senator Barack Hussein Obama for President.  The ACLU is one of those partners.   Roger Baldwin, the founder and main inspiration in the ACLU said  “I am for Socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal. It all sums up into one single purpose-the abolition of dog-eat-dog under which we live.” http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2005/10/26/the-aclu-is-not-non-partisan/ 

NBC wants the American public to believe that Barbara Arnwine and John Strasburger are going to offfer unbiased news reporting, I don’t think so.  In her interview with Essence, Arnwine stressed that the law is especially important to African Americans. “It defines who we are much more than it does anybody else,” she said. “We’re not all equal under the Constitution. Our equality hinges on three amendments, and the court is constantly amending the import of those amendments. It’s constantly in flux.” http://www.answers.com/topic/barbara-arnwine She has openly criticized the civil rights record of the Bush and Reagan administrations.   To think that the law is more important to African Americans than white Americans is quite a statement. 

Election Partners is a who’s who of organizations that support Obama.  Main Stream NBC is hardly unbiased and like Obama’s other associations with people of character like The Reverend Wright, William Ayers, Atoin Tony Rezko, ACORN, put the liberal reform agenda for government handouts first and foremost.

    Shame, Shame on you NBC.
