Whitey Tape, API, Phil Berg, and Andy Martin

Boy the waters are roiling. It is true that we stand on the precipice of electing the least vetted, unqualified man for President in the history of the United States. I am getting a flood of emails from folks–most well intentioned and a few trolls–desperate for the October surprise, whatever it might be. So let me try to answer some of the questions circulating.

The Whitey Tape–None of my three main sources on who told me about the existence of a video recording of Michelle Obama making disparaging comments about white folks have backed off. Two of these sources are Democrats and are journalists. They were not trying to sabotage the Obama campaign. They were passing on something they believed to be true. The fact that my third source, a person who lives on the West Coast and is a Republican, has no ties whatsoever to the other two but told the same story persuaded me this “tape” exists. My Republican friend tells me that the McCain campaign intervened and requested the tape not be used.

There also is the fact that the Obama campaign at one point circulated the lame story that Michelle was not using “whitey” as an epithet. Nope. She was saying, “Why’d he.” You don’t put out a story line like that if such a recording does not exist. At this point I don’t think it is going to be used.

African Press InternationalMany of the conservative blogs are buzzing about the supposed release of an audiotape featuring Michelle Obama complaining about API coverage and her alleged acknowledgment that Barack was an Indonesian citizen. I have no doubt that Barack was adopted by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, and became an Indonesian citizen as a child. However, I don’t find this report credible. I am happy to be proven wrong in my belief, but I don’t think Michelle Obama is just sitting around watching and reading news accounts and calling up folks to complain. If that was true I would have expected a call from the lovely Mrs. Obama. API is claiming it has the audiotape and it will be released imminently. I was born and raised in Independence, Missouri. I am a Show Me state boy. I am not writing anymore on this matter until an audiotape appears.

Phil Berg and his lawsuit–Poor Phil Berg. He can’t get arrested in Philadelphia right now. His effort to mount a legal challenge to Barack Obama’s qualifications, or lack thereof in terms of citizenship, to be President appears to be going no where. Yet he is declaring victory of sorts today. According to a story at America’s Right:

Berg: Due to Procedure, Obama and DNC Admit all Allegations

According to Rule 36 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, a party upon whom requests for admissions have been served must respond, within 30 days, or else the matters in the requests will be automatically deemed conclusively admitted for purposes of the pending action.

On September 15, as part of his federal lawsuit contending that the Illinois senator is ineligible, pursuant to the U.S. Constitution, to serve as president of the United States, Philadelphia attorney Philip Berg served Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee with just such a request. Soon thereafter, on October 6, Barack Obama and the DNC acknowledged service in their motion for protective order, filed in an attempt to persuade the court to stay discovery. The Federal Rules require that a response to a request for admissions be served within the 30-day time limit, and Barack Obama and the DNC have not done so.

Therefore, this morning, amidst news reports that Barack Obama will be suspending his campaign for a few days so he can fly to Hawaii to visit his grandmother, who has suddenly fallen ill, Philip Berg will file two motions in district court in Philadelphia:

A motion requesting an immediate order deeming his request for admissions served upon Barack Obama and the DNC on September 15 admitted by default, and
A motion requesting an expedited ruling and/or hearing on Berg’s motion deeming the request for admissions served upon Obama and the DNC admitted.

Berg contends that the failure to respond and serve the response within the time limit is “damning,” and made two appearances overnight on Rollye James’ talk radio program, the second one coming shortly after midnight, during which he disclosed the meat of today’s filings and the legal and political ramifications of the defendants’ failure to respond.

I am not a lawyer but I thought the DNC has asked for a delay and the judge in the case still has not ruled. I think this much is certain. Even if Obama is elected these questions, like Whitewater in the case of the Clintons, is not going to disappear and will be fodder for further investigations and legal challenges.

Andy Martin–And Mr. Martin is in the news. The Obama team came after him as a rabid anti-Semite. Let me see if I have this right, Barack Obama hangs out with Louis Farrakhan and Rashid Khalidi and Andy Martin is the anti-Semite? Anyway, Andy is in Hawaii and many are speculating that his investigative efforts there are the real reason that Barack has suspended his campaign and headed for Honolulu. There is a nifty thread on Andy’s efforts over at the Hillary Clinton forum (read here). I don’t know if there is any fire beneath the smoke Andy is putting up, but we will know by next Tuesday.

Conclusion
I believe we ought to start the rumor that Barack Obama really is a disgruntled plumber from Ohio. That appears to be the only way the media will be inspired to conduct a thorough investigation of why Barack has covered up and mythologized his childhood and his ties to radicals like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. All hail Barack!

    OT…

    OMG, Obama holding a Jobs Summit, and on his panel is Richardson. What a joke… Why doesn’t he have a townhall meeting with McCain. This is so ridiculous you can see Richardson going through his role. This summit should have been done on Broadway or Disneyworld inside Fantasy Land. The sad part to this, are the people inside believing all the characters in this Play called, “Obama, The Talk Show”. Their experience’s should come from the HEART not from a piece of Paper in front of them.

  • http://pumasunleashed.wordpress.com Tellurian

    Phil Berg has the Right to ask for enforcement of the admission as it pertains to the Constitution. Obama is in an indefensible position. Berg has to ask the Court for Obama’s removal as the Democratic Nominee.

    Important Update:

    Obama & DNC Admit All Allegations of Federal Court Lawsuit – Obama’s “Not” Qualified to be President
    Obama Should Immediately Withdraw his Candidacy for President

    For Immediate Release: – 10/21/08 – Complete contact details and a pdf are at the end of this article

    (Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania �” 10/21/08) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and tbe DNC “ADMITTED”, by way of failure to timely respond to Requests for Admissions, all of the numerous specific requests in the Federal lawsuit. Obama is “NOT QUALIFIED” to be President and therefore Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President and the DNC shall substitute a qualified candidate. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

    Berg stated that he filed Requests for Admissions on September 15, 2008 with a response by way of answer or objection had to be served within thirty [30] days. No response to the Requests for Admissions was served by way of response or objection. Thus, all of the Admissions directed to Obama and the DNC are deemed “ADMITTED.” Therefore, Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President.

    Boy I post the articles I found and someone else starts a thread….I would have started the thread but I dont have that privilege…..

    But anyway, the truth is getting out….

  • AnninCA

    Whatever, Larry….this stuff isn’t relevant to me, anyway.

    I have no doubt Michelle was a big-mouth. I also don’t think she is the same person today.

    But…whatever.

    These slime-tactics aren’t any more worthwhile than those used against Palin.

    I’ve obviously made it clear that I don’t support them.

    On either side.

    Well, this is interesting (though somewhat contrary to other polls): GWU/Battleground has Obama up by only one. Uno. (1). Single,

  • Patience

    I’m not surprised about McCain not wanting to use the whitey tape. I’m very disappointed though as I feel the public deserves a fuller and truer picture of Obama. He’s called Michelle his most-trusted advisor, so I don’t consider it off-limits. I believe all of these accusations of racism have been to serve the purpose of thwarting the effect the whitey tape would have. Oh well.

    I believe in its existence because of the dissembling — the “why’d he” explanation was proof enough for me. But when I recently read rumors that Seymour Hersh had the tape, I lost hope that it would ever see the light of day since he’s a Democrat.

  • doc99

    By suppressing the Whitey Tape and mention of Jeremiah Wright, McCain might be running one of the most ethical campaigns in American History. Barack Obama not so much.

  • tj

    I heard yesterday on a talk radio show that the republicain national party is telling MCcain that he will use Rev. Wright against Obama in the coming weeks. I wonder if they will use the tape of Michelle Obama along with this. I know we have no physical proof of the tapes existance, but I am like you Larry, a person does not try to explain away something unless it is fact. I personaly think it should be used since the Obama campaign has made race such a factor in this election.

  • Pennsylvania goes RED!

    My Republican friend tells me that the McCain campaign intervened and requested the tape not be used.

    I read McCain’s detailed horoscope, there’s a bit in there about how he can work against himself.

    I hope he hasn’t muzzled the 527s.

  • rwc

    McCain has run one the worst campaigns in history. Here he has as a opponent, a Marxist thug who has a history of befriending racists, anti-semites and ex-terrorists.

    He should have wiped the floor with him months ago.

    But instead he has refused to go after Obama and his associates and instead play patty cake with him.

    Overall McCain is doing a great job at not getting elected.

  • dnesser

    I don’t understand McCain. He won’t use Rev. Wright and now you’re saying he won’t use the “Whitey” tape. He needs to use both or he is not going to win. The Media is already blaming McCain for a Nasty campaign, so he should go all the way. Americans have the right to know what the Obama’s really believe. Where are the 527′s – they are the ones that should be putting this stuff out. I’m starting to think the Republicans do not want to win.

  • benny

    Barack Obama really is a disgruntled plumber from Ohio. lol rofl

  • Dan

    You’ve gotta be kidding me, Larry.

    The McCain campaign has a game-winner in hand and they’ve “requested that it not be used”???

    My God, do they think that it’s somehow nobler to go down to defeat and not let the tape see the light of day rather than use it and prevent a pseudo-Marxist like Barack Obama from gaining the White House???

    One can only hope that if the tape does indeed exist (And to be honest, this sounds an awful lot to me like a cover story that someone’s putting out to to cover up the fact that it doesn’t.) wiser heads within the McCain campaign will prevail and will release it.

    Does anyone think for one second that if McCain were leading by 3-4 points with two weeks left to go and the Democrats came across a videotape of Cindy McCain going off on a rant against black people that they wouldn’t use it?

    C’mon John!!! The future of this country is at stake here!!!

  • tj

    Hey BTW as an afterthought: If BOs grandma was so sick for the last couple of weeks why did he not suspend his campaign and go to her before she was released from the hospital. To me this is backwards. Not once was there even mention of her being sick until she was sent home.
    I think BO is trying to figure out a way to make this BC thing go away. Granny is just a good excuse to fly to Hawaii.
    Also they are saying she is 86 on the news. Did BO not say she was 93? I swear I heard him say this.

  • AnninCA

    Your idea of a game-changer would, indeed, change my vote.

    I will not vote for McCain if he plays the race card.

    End of story.

    I will abandon his campaign in a heartbeat.

    It’s irresponsible. It’s wrong. It’s against all my principles.

    Use it……lose me.

  • AnninCA

    Couldn’t disagree with you more.

    Your right-wing ideas aren’t a winner this year.

  • rwc

    I suspect McCain has lost his nerve, remember how he froze up and started stuttering when a older woman was begging him to go after Obama?

    Its clear from that and other instances where people were begging McCain to attack Obama that McCain doesn’t have the stomach for a fight.

    And if he is restraining the 527′s(which I suspect given how silent they are) he deserves to lose.

  • AMERICAN SAWBUCK

    Use the damn tape ..the future of the greatest country on earth is at stake here..I do not want to be a socialist…it’s hard enough being a capitalist with the market the way it is… I’ m old enough and smart enough to take care of myself and I do not want the government involved in my life any more..Washington gave us the plastic Jesus…how bright are they???/
    If you have the tapes flaunt them……time is a running out!!!
    And as much as McCain may protest I think he will overlook others who us the tape to get him elected president…
    Sow Baby Show

  • Alice Paul WPB

    I was thinking about something. You know how Biden made those remarks the other day about a crisis happening within the first six months of Obama’s election? Maybe its a Constitutional crisis, like finally finding out he isn’t a US born citizen or dual citizen. That’s why his supporters would have to stand by him!

    Obama also stated the other day down here in Florida that people should go out and vote early because you never know what is going to happen. What did he mean by that? I remember thinking that was such a strange statement.

  • AMERICAN SAWBUCK

    use and Show Baby Show are corrections

  • AnninCA

    absurd….

    You just are right-wing.

    I can only reassert that all the stories, even on NQ over the birth certificate, the whitey tapes, etc.

    You could easily drive me away if I didn’t decide you were just a bunch of tin-foil nutcases.

    I’m not interested in radical right thinking.

  • workingclass artist

    Thanks Larry for the post…Your opinion is always interesting.
    I am not a lawyer but I have been the victim of this admissions discovery thing that Berg is talking about.
    It is fundamental…If you don’t respond to the admission as Berg states you in effect throw the case to the other side.
    I a custody case ( the 4th brought by my kids father because I had gone to the Atty. Gen. about back child support ) This standard list of admissions ( the questions vary according to the case ) was given to my lawyer.
    It is fundamental first year law school stuff…Aaaand my lawyer ( who was moving offices at the time ) never gave me these questions…in fact at the next hearing he blanched when confronted by both the opposing lawyer and ME in the lobby outside the courtroom…and QUIT as my lawyer on the SPOT!…The judge rescheduled the hearing as I was a basket case and had no idea what was going
    on…

    I went through the phone book trying to get another lawyer…Finally a friend of my mother’s explained to me just how badly my lawyer had screwed up and that this was why I couldn’t find another lawyer to take my case. In fact this lawyer told me I had a duty to repor this Atty. to the Bar Assoc. for making such a fundamental and classic error…He effectively lost my case by not responding to the admissions…
    That’s why I say DISCOVERY IS A BITCH!
    Now in my case I got instruction on how to amend the admissions and basically plead on bended knee to the MERCY of the Court. Because I was Poor and in the position I was as well as the nature of the case…The Judge took pity on me and did what I was told was a rare thing..He was judicious and granted my petition. But I’m a civilian…
    Soeterobama is a constitutional legal expert with the DNC Lawyers behind him. I doubt the Judge will grant the same mercy…We shall see…But from what I was told there is no excuse for inaction barring an act of GOD i.e, earth quake…etc…It is just Gross Negligence according to the Lawyer who helped me…
    BTW…I retained custody of the kid who is 18 now..and her Dad had to pay back some of the back support…Not what was owed but at least some of it.

  • Objective analysis

    I would expose his behind (Obama) and his wife all day. When you have a spade or Joker in a spades game to win the game, you play the sucker. Period. McCain is right, he is not Bush or Rove. They would have played this along time ago. This ain’t even a Kerry issue.

    I believe that they will play it, but they wanted to appear to not be racist. heck Obama has not kept his promises, why should McCain be honorable.

    Burn baby Burn.

  • wodiej

    LOL…I liked that too.

  • OBAMA IS A TRAITOR

    I think it’s pretty clear that the grandmother story is a hoax and he’s going to Hawaii to try to straighten out this BC thing. How sad that Obama thinks he is above our Constitution. But from what I have noticed this election most people don’t seem to care much for America, our freedoms, our Constitution, etc. if they are voting for Obama. I mean, there should be plain OUTRAGE that his close confidant and mentor is standing on the American Flag. But I guess America is just trash to these people. Very sad indeed. After Biden’s freaky speech about America facing some bizarre situation in six months after Obama is elected, etc. these are very scary times for us. I hope that anyone with business, money and families to protect will leave the country. It’s the only way to say that either we live in America, as AMERICA or someone else can pay for all of Obama’s costly, insane spending programs, etc. and live in the dangerous, unsafe, defenseless America he wants.

  • standard

    I hope that the tape, if it exists, is released independent of McCain.
    McCain’s big mistake is to not work sneaky like Obama. The criticism comes directly from his mouth or Pallin’s.
    Obama sends his little Trolls out on the web to do his dirty business.
    There is a potent smear commercial against McCain replaying here in NYC. They aired it during SNL, and I’ve seen it on CNN as well.
    More and more, I agree with Susan.
    Let’s vote McCain.

  • NCgirl

    It is my understanding that the “Whitey Tape” has Michelle saying some pretty bad things about Bill Clinton. Maybe some of you think it wouldn’t be effective, but I think it would. It might make a great deal of difference to the Taylor Marsh crowd who formerly supported Hillary and are now koolaid drinkers. Saying something that awful about Bill might just piss those people off enough to either stay home or vote McCain. I am beginning to think McCain really doesn’t want to win. He doesn’t want Rev. Wright used and apparently doesn’t want this tape used. I think it is political suicide myself.

  • tj

    Bidens comments are just plain strange. I have thought this from the beginnig when he was saying Hillary would be the better VP vhoice. It almost is as if he wants to sabatoge BO.
    The only way after the election that the BC issue can be taken care of is with impeachment unless they do it before he is sworn in. I still think this is unfair since every other person in the USA has to prove we are citizens other wise we are a terrorist threat. Why is the same not done for the elected officials of this country.

  • beverly leslie

    If there is a Whitey tape and the Mccain camp doesn’t use it, they are not very smart.

  • rwc

    Race card? Obama and Michelle are the racists here darlin.

    Get that straight.

    And if exposing a black female David Duke offends you so be it.

    The GOP doesn’t need the vote of people who support racists and Marxists.

  • wodiej

    I think if there is a tape of Michelle Obama calling white people “whitey”, it should be exposed. That is racist. If there is a telephone conversation of her admitting Obama’a Indonesian citizenship, it should be exposed. That proves Obama is ineligible to be President of the United States. It is not smear, it is a matter of right and wrong. Especially since the Obama’s want to throw the friggin’ race card so frequently. Neither of them are fit to represent or lead this great country in any way, shape or form. I felt the same way about George Bush Jr.

    I am sure there is a reason why McCain is not using things like Rev. Wright against Obama and I don’t believe it’s because he has lost nerve. Are you kidding me?? He was tortured in Vietnam for 5 years. I think he and his campaign feel it would do more harm than good…you know, stoke the race fires more. We don’t need that.

    Thank GOD you posted publicly about the API thing. I am so SICK of those people trying to pimp their links on my blog I have erased all links. IMO these people are looking for internet traffic for advertising. I don’t believe anything about this story and if I’m proven wrong I will be VERY surprised. The fact is, they deliberately threw a match and then ran away from their own fire. I urge everyone not to perpetuate their links. You are being used by these people to increase their own traffic.

    Rule One: Don’t believe another thing they say unless you first HEAR a tape. That’s my rule and it should be yours.

  • Mary Lou

    It is not playing the race card to point out Barack Obama’s associations with people who appear to
    despise Whites and the American system. That’s like saying it would be playing the race card to inform AAs that a particular candidate wanting their vote has had associations with White Supremecists. So, don’t vote for McCain
    if this kind of discussion turns you off, but please avoid mischaracterizing it.

  • beachnan

    Thanks Larry for the updates. Although I find it commendable on one level, for McCain, to say no to airing the tape, on another level, I feel that he might live to regret it. I think Hillary may be reliving her campaign, and wondering if she should have said more. If McCain feels as we do, that BO would be disasterous for the country, than he should release the tape. I think the American public is sick to death of scandals, but what will they get if they elect the “messiah”? I’m afraid his entire time in office will be spent fighting the scandals surrounding his life. McCain needs to save us from this happening, by doing everything he can to defeat him.

  • Jackarooty

    I am absolutely beside myself that McCain is allowing the election to pass him by not releasing the whitey tape. I am so disturbed that he is going to “allow” That One to be elected POTUS.

    It is so wrong.

    Well, if McCain’s camp actually has this ‘whitey tape’ and doesn’t use it he deserves to lose. There, I said it.

    The other day I came home complaining to my mom about a snake of a woman i work with, and my dear mother told me to stop talking about the woman and to pray with her. I do not understand people with high moral standards even win they are my mother, so i’m not going to wrap my mind around John mccain. maybe being so close to death (cause let’s be honest he is old) he wants to meet his maker when ever that maybe with a clear concious. The truth is no matter if obama get into office, he cheated and stole to get there, so really he didn’t win a damn thing. maybe John McCain wants to earn the positions he gets. Either way john has to past the muster of the person looking back at him in the mirror, there for he must do not what makes us happy, but what makes that person staring back at him happy.

    Damn it I wanted to see that whitey tape!

    If true about the whitey tape, everything should come out. It will only prove to the American people that all Obama has done is lied to us. Starting with his Birth Certificate which should have been Step 1, to run for POTUS, just like McCain did.

    Obama should come out and Speak the Truth and Shame the Devil. If he doesn’t McCain should do it for him.

    Not to me.

    I will vote for Obama if McCain or the Republicans pull any race shenanigans.

    I promise that.

    I am voting for McCain on his record of compromise, his integrity in this election, and the HOPE that Republicans can be changed.

    I do not respect their past. I do not go along with any of the radical right rants.

    I will not vote for McCain if I smell he’s leaning that way.

    That’s a promise.

    I am voting Republican for the first time in my life because I trust that he’s more honorable than that.

    All this baloney that I see posted by the nutcases puts me off. The ONLY reason it hasn’t pushed me away from McCain is because I’m sure it’s fringe element thinking.

    There are nuts in our world. Can’t escape them.

    And computers are cheap.

    But if I see the actual Republican party going that way?

    I’m so outta there, the wind will slam the door.

    Well, then…….I’ll be one who really does just stay home and let YOU be responsible.

  • shannon

    You just don’t get it. Our generation has not seen men like McCain in the public spotlight. He is all about honor. A man NEVER questions another man’s honor. It is the worst of insults. The man in question will always show himself for who he really is, there is no need for McCain stoop that low.

    I really want McCain to win this election. The country needs him, this is his time. But, I have long since believed that he might be too honorable to play this political game.

  • http://mybluecountry.googlepages.com/whattheobamademocratsaresayingposter Linda

    That’s a sign he is losing support. He never talks about issues unless he absolutely has to.

    And is now taking a page from Hillary and John to copy….a Townhall to talk about the issues.

    Richardson……..UGH, he is helping cost the Democrats in this state (deservingly). People are so sick of him. They were pushing Richardson so he would leave the state. The same reason they were jumping on the Barry wagon, thinking he would appoint Richardson VP and now they’re prayiing for a Cabinet position. They don’t like what Richardson has done to this state. Just terrible.

    And his latest baby. The mega million (over 400) to build his train from south of Albuquerque to Santa Fe. Yep all that money for a choo choo that goes between two cities an hour away in one limited track. He said this is part of state transportation and the state would pay and run it. Then while he was running for Pres, news came out that they were going to raise taxes to help fund the maintenance of it. NO KIDDING. He put a stop to that “silly talk”, until after his failed campaign run. Now he is pushing for the tax and it’s on this Election Ballot. He has to pay the people, particularly his transportation Dept, like Rhonda Fought, who pushed his choo choo through the city planning dept and campaigned for him, so she can get more money. Get this, only half will be going to maintenance of the train and the other half to be dispersed accordingly.

    Yes, I wouldn’t mind Richardson gone from here, but I don’t wish him on the rest of our country in exchange for our freedom.

    …I’m that kinda’ gal. :)

  • Mercedes

    There was an interesting discussion yesterday among some of the commenters about their “tinfoil” picking up an impending storm. I don’t think I would agree with that but something about the McCain campaign doesn’t seem quite right….something seems to be holding both he and Sarah Palin back. I base that sense on both the lack of action on the news front and a really pathetic campaign ad that McCain is running in Colorado…something about responding to the economic crisis.

    Attn: Republican campaign. Get that ad off the air now. McCain is wearing a gold tie and has a plaintive “is this okay” look on his face at the end.

    I want a reformer. I voted already for a reformer. Get with it McCain people. Start slugging.

  • oowawa

    Alice, you raise some interesting points. But I kind of think that Biden was just being sloppy with his words, as he often is. He did specify “international crisis,” which would seem to indicate some trouble coming from abroad.

    Your second point, about O advsing his followers to “vote early because you never know what is going to happen,” is truly puzzling. What an enigma he is. Everything is sure up in the air, isn’t it? In a time of great uncertainty, the country seems ready to take the “leap of faith,” from the frying pan into the fire.

    API is disingenuous and playing games. They are lying about their audio tapes which they’ve been releasing for ever and nothing ever comes out.After spending 20 years at trinity racist church we don’t need their tapes to know how michele Obama is. We also know that she probably would have not supported Hillary as the nominee,why?

    I AM REPLYING TO MAC’S EMAILS TO ME ASKING FOR MONEY IN THE MOST ANGRY OF TERMS. SHOW THE GD TAPE!!

  • AnninCA

    I don’t take direction from others about what I participate in discussing. I think the association aspect of this blog is missing the point.

    The point is that nobody really knows what Obama will do when faced with real presidential decision.

    He’s a “present” voter. A cardboard character.

    That’s his danger.

  • NCgirl

    I just read that with only two weeks left until the election, Biden has no public appearance scheduled. They are punishing him for his mistake and are trying to do damage control. I think the cat is out of the bag now. Too late.

  • tj

    rwc,
    You are right on that one. The one thing the Whitey tape will show is that you do not have to be white to be a racist. You dont have to be a Mccain supporter to be a racist. No race is better then any other in their racist views of the others.
    If a white man had said what Michelle has suppossedly said he would be crucified, lose his job and forced to publicly apploigize. When its the Obamas however we will just hide it under the rug.

  • beverly leslie

    I’m not “right wing” and although I’m sure you find your stance commendable, I really do believe we deserve to know everything about our leaders.

    “LIBERTY CANNOT BE PRESERVED WITHOUT A GENERAL KNOWLEDGE AMONG THE PEOPLE, WHO HAVE A RIGHT, AN INDISPUTABLE, UNALIENABLE, INDEFEASIBLE, DIVINE RIGHT TO THAT MOST DREADED AND ENVIED KIND OF KNOWLEDGE, I MEAN THE CHARACTERS AND CONDUCT OF THEIR RULERS.”

    JOHN ADAMS.

    So if such a tape exists, we the people have every right to hear and make our own decisions. There is a lawsuit in regards to a birth certificate, what is so hard about producing the certificate? We the people have every right to know such things.

    You Betcha!…Andy Martin has an emergency petition slated for release of records on the 22nd.
    He’s using freedom o the press as his argument…and he claims injury as a journalist…lol..Could work…I mean isn’t that how we got the Pentagon Papers ?
    He also sez that barky gives up right to privacy cause he posted the COLB on the web…It’s goin to be interestink…I think the count is now at 4 BC law suits in 4 states….Barky has some splainin to do…and apparently a good deal of flying…lol

    We are opposed, and it’s good that we’re opposed.

    We are truly, truly not racist.

    And we dont support Obama.

    Don’t blow it.

  • workingclass artist

  • Illinois_gal

    I definitely agree that Barky is using his grandma as an excuse to go to Hawaii. He is scared, because Andy Martin went to the Supreme Court about his birth certificate.

    Andy Martin has asked the Hawaii Supreme Court to issue emergency writ opening secret Obama birth files.

    having said that though,

    “Conclusion
    I believe we ought to start the rumor that Barack Obama really is a disgruntled plumber from Ohio. That appears to be the only way the media will be inspired to conduct a thorough investigation of why Barack has covered up and mythologized his childhood and his ties to radicals like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. All hail Barack!”

    yes, definiely. But the media…do we still have to call them the media, can’t we just call them the extreme left propagandists? Anyhooo, it would be good for plumbers, because then they would change the story “See, America is great, even a Plumber can be President”. LOL

    Obama is using the lamest excuse and the media is turning the cheek again.
    Andy martin files a suit in Hawaii and Obama is suddenly going there.
    We need to have a complete stakeout at the courthouse the entire time.
    Kinda strange that Obama heading to Hawaii after another law suit was files by Andy Martin.
    Possible that Obama is trying to secure an affidavit from his grandmother, on where he was born.
    However, can the affidavit be used in lue of the “Birth certificate”?
    The BC on FactCheck does not have an official embossed seal from the Dept of Health in Hawaii.

    First we have the fake templated Birth Certificate,
    then we have the forgery on FactCheck.
    The one on FactCheck DOES NOT have the official Seal of the Department of Health, State of Hawaii.

    There is NO way to verify where it came from.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scjF5oB-JXk

    and

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIsQJNTvlUE

    This means that there are 4 law suits right now.
    PA, WA, UT, and HI.

    The media is avoiding this, WHY!!!

    We are heading for a Constitutional crisis and a meltdown of society if this is not addressed.
    And the results will rest squarely on Obama’s shoulders.

  • beverly leslie

    Are you going to ping pong to each side each time your sensibilities are offended? Childish and niave if you ask me, this is the real world and if you didn’t realize during the primaries when Hillary was savaged, that life is all about survival of the fittest, you didn’t learn much. Everyone wants to be honorable but sometimes you have to get in the mud with the pigs otherwise your survival is not guaranteed. Just watch the Oblah campaign, they are very good at getting in the dirt, splashing around and inflicting harm and they will do whatever it takes to win. Open your eyes

  • Firefly

    I seem to remember a post by Larry some time back where he talked about the whitey tape and other really damning stuff McCain and the republicans had on 0bama.

    In the post Larry said something about: if McCain’s internals look really good going into election day, then they’ll probably lay off using the controversial stuff – somebody correct me if I’m wrong on that.

    Anyway, maybe them deciding to lay off means that McCain’s internals are a lot better than America is being led to believe by the media and the pollsters – kell surpreeze there – and maybe he’s looking good going into November 4.

    I’m really encouraged by Joe the Plumber’s 58% approval rating – I commented about this on another thread – and I’m thinking that the 58% for Joe the Plumber may be really close to what McCain’s internals are showing, contrary to the fortysomething percent fed us by the crap media and the crap polls. NOBODY who’s voting for 0bama is gonna like Joe the Plumber – nobody – and I think most of the 58% have gotta be McCain voters or potential McCain voters.

    58% would translate into a 16 point win for McCain – which ain’t gonna happen, of course. But it all makes me encouraged that McCain’s support is a lot stronger and larger than we’re being told.

  • AnninCA

    Three (3) murders in Chicago all gay men who knew Obama.
    The Larry Sinclair allegations have NEVER been disproven.

  • chandler

    IF this tape exists it seems to me it is the patriotic duty to show it, Biden’s statement hints that Israel is in danger, I know McCain wants to take the high road but if he really puts country first he will expose Michelle for the racist she is.

  • OBAMA IS A TRAITOR

    I’m unclear why some people here would find telling the truth about the Obama’s to be a game changer with their vote? I guess if you lose one vote like AnninCa then it’s worth the ones you pick up with people who finally get the true story. The Obamas are RACISTS. Not the other way around. That’s why there IS a “whitey tape” and why Michelle’s thesis got locked up and sequestered. Because SHE is a RACIST. I think the country is entitled to know that. It seems most of Obama’s decisions would be based on his own personal beliefs and they are not very friendly ones to most of this country. How is it “negative” to tell the TRUTH?

    As for the Obama camp? I mean, they have attacked Palin, her children, the McCains, tried to dig up dirt on McCain’s adopted daughter, etc. They have attacked Joe the Plumber, etc. So it’s a little bit of hypocrisy and kind of pathetic to hear someone wouldn’t vote for McCain if the MSM finally told the TRUTH about him and the insane, ranting, racist wife. Like I said, I think it would be worth losing one vote and “blowing it” with one person to get the rest of the votes that tape would pick up. Just MO though.

  • AnninCA

    Oh for crying out loud……..

    Get over it.

    I am so completely sick of this kind of kinky stuff.

    I do care about what he’s planning to do if attacked.

  • Pj
  • requiredreading

    But isn’t the McCain camp stuck between a rock and a hard place? Just look at the comments here: Fury if the tape is released; fury if the tape is not released. This is not the time to be divided and conquered: we need to be united (and that probably requires compromises on both sides of any issue) to prevent the election of the most inexperienced and potentially dangerous candidate ever to run for president. I’m not trying to preach, so please don’t be annoyed, I’m just worried about the division I see here today.

  • IronMan

    Sarah Palin LIVE in Reno, NV now. Lee Greenwood was just on stage with her singing God Bless the USA!

    If you are interested in joining in lawsuits in your own state then you can go to Operationexposeobama.com. I was on a conference call with them last night and there were tons of people on it. Maybe 150? People are exploring suits in many other states about this BC thing. It would seem that the best way to get heard and protect the Constitution would be to get as many of the states covered as possible.

  • AJSHOPE

    LOL, wow, you are an idiot. If that is your moronic train of thought, just go ahead vote for Obama. If exposing Obama and his associates and family causes you to actually vote for Obama, then you aren’t really planning on voting for McCain anyway.

    Talk about idiotic logic.

  • Hank

    That One, and MO are going to laughing for years to come if he is elected. They will be saying, “Those stupid whiteys had every piece of evidence before them and they still voted for me. Here honey, the $10 I owe you, you won the bet. John or the MSM did not report anything on your tapes.” She will reply, OK Great One, go you need to start your first day of Training. Go join, Wright and Ayers they are waiting for you in the Oval office.

    Whoever has any evidence, you need to produce it ASAP.

  • beverly leslie

    Obviously many people don’t care about his “present” voting otherwise he wouldn’t have gotten so far and this race wouldn’t be so close. Of course it matters and is hugely important, but how can the regular voting public understand the importance when the media covers for him and he lies about his “present” votes.

    If that is all Mccain uses, he’s not winning.

  • JMO

    The reason I started reading this blog was because I heard about the MO whitey tape here. After the song and dance on the AFI blog and now here, I’m beginning to think both stories are hoaxes, not just the AFI one. I have a hard time believing McCain would be willing to lose this election because he doesn’t want to expose MO’s racist rant. It’s okay for the NYT’s to publish a hit piece on his wife but it’s not okay to release the tape? Like the AFI tape, unless I hear it, I don’t believe it ever existed.

  • benny

    what next? are they gonna get cartoon characters to vote too? this election cycle is getting ridiculous. and imagine, a fish? the messiah confirmation for obamacrats comes in here (something like Jesus). lol

  • Zeke

    Everyone is aware of your commitment here, miss half-way. Continue with it and watch Obama get elected.
    I feel you wrap yourself up in your past-tense ways. That old hippie shit won’t wash right now and your continual efforts at diluting the intensity of people efforts here is not doing shit to stop Obama.
    You’re the person who sits in the car while others push and bitches about the ride.
    Either try to commit to something and follow through or just go over to the other side and play with them.
    Nobody needs a ‘Devil’s Advocate’ or anything resembling one here.
    When someone accuses you of this ambivalence, all you do is say maybe yes, maybe no.
    This isn’t a practice test, not a dry run, and NOT involved with whether you want to still flash a peace sign and buy into that shit. Its about stopping a Marxist/Socialist who will take away your right to hug a tree, drink some accanacia tea, burn your bra, bitch about greenspace or anything else.

    If any of this is true, McCain is not the original or only owner of the tape. He doesn’t have to be the one to release it.

    Joe Biden’s words are true, everyone knows it, there are other leaders that know this and need to protect this country.
    So far we have Sarah, McCain and Hannity willing to stand up, but they are not providing full disclosure…Hillary, we’d be delighted to see you here (hint, hint).
    If WE know Obama presents a clear and present danger, so do the leaders of this nation.

  • Jackarooty

    I just read on cannonfire.blogspot.com that Joe Biden is having an affair.

    In my tin foil hat world, the MSM exposes it before the election, Biden steps down and Bambi picks Hillary as the VP. Bambi is elected and then exposed, has to step down and Hillary is POTUS.

    I know…dream on…

  • OBAMA IS A TRAITOR

    Hank,

    I think you are 100% correct. The Obamas have no respect for America and why WOULD they? They ARE IMO laughing themselves to death that Obama could basically go blow up the White House himself, with Ayers, and his sheep would say “whooohooo Obama blew up the White House! He’s our hero.” It’s a disgrace but yes I believe the Obamas are spitting on America and laughing about it all day long. I do think the best was probably more like $500. They can afford the big bucks now. Hell, that’s what Michelle spends on her lobster and champagne snacks these days.

  • I have a bracelet 2

  • AnninCA

    That’s legitimate.

    You want to continue this refrain, you lose my “one” vote.

    Except, I think I can assure you….it’s a lot more than just “one” vote.

    You lose the moderates.

    We’re just not into fearing Obama as the communist. We don’t go along with the birth certificate crud. We’re outta the loop as far as the right-wing stories go.

    Now, I post here, and I try to avoid antagonizing those posters.

    They have a right to their right-wing opinions and their space to express themselves.

    But me?

    The minute I see McCain pull that?

    I’m not voting for him.

    As it is, I’m a definite soft supporter. I’ve never voted Republican in my entire life. This is a huge risk for me. I THINK I trust him. But if there’s one whisker of a chance that he’s just another nasty, right-wing guy…….I’ll not vote for him and never even feel a whiff of guilt.

    McCain has earned my vote. He’s been entirely respectable. Powell…..with his remarks about how he’s “troubled,” left me cold. No, McCain has been respectable, and I don’t respect those who don’t acknowledge that.

    A move such as what some of you want……would reverse my opinion.

    The good news is that I think McCain is a lot smarter than bloggers.

    He’ll not throw MY vote away.

    He got it. He knows. He’ll deliver.

    We may not win. But he earned my vote.

    So, all of a sudden he’s giving up? I don’t buy it! He will Appeal and drag this thing over the finish line somehow.

  • ritamary

    Obama has not displayed much interest in his white side of the family, as far as I can see. He did not bother to visit his mother when she was fatally ill with cancer. He apparently thinks of his grandmother as “a typical white person” because she is afraid of black men on the street after a homeless black man hassled her at a bus stop.

  • tzada

    I got quite ill this AM on every channel I turned to they had Precious on. His name or him giving a speech or a chart showing how his plans were soooooo much better than McCain’s NBC had maybe 5 to 7 minutes straight of that drivel. It was early morning (before 6 )and I hope that it was the blue collar workers like Joe the Plumber who probably loath him as much as I do that were hearing it.

  • chandler

    Obama reversed his position on every promise he made during the primaries, he had pledged to take public financing and signed his name to it. If he had kept that pledge he would not so far ahead in the polls. national polling indicates that over 80% of the public are opposed to the concept of redistribution of wealth. If McCain hammers Obama with this maybe he can eke out a victory. Unfortunately there appears to be rampant voter fraud, especially with early voting. AnninCA if Mccain loses your vote do you intend to vote for Obama? I agree that the promises Obama makes now have little chance of materialising when he is POTUS.

    Yes, this year communist/marxist theory and anti~American/anti~white/anti~Semitic sentiment is all the rage~~~and Barack Hussein Obama is bringing it to the masses.

    The same media that gave ‘W’ a pass is now giving a pass to a man who is even less qualified to govern as president than ‘W’ was/is. And just like ‘W’, the only positive about all of this, is that we will be able to point to all the idiots who supported this friend~to~terrorists and say, “I told you so”. Cold comfort indeed.

    Well, this “Whitey Tape” is about Obama’s wife… not Obama first of all. I do believe John McCain said families were off limits.

    Now that the NYT, Obama propaganda central, wrote that awful hit piece on Cindy, I do not know what will happen.

  • Andrew

    I agree with you, Shannon. I also want to add that as a Hillary supporter supporting the GOP for the first time in my life I am tired of reading complaints about the campaign that John McCain is running. Considering the state of the country after eight years of Bush, is it any surprise that he is trailing in the polls? Yes, Obama is a nightmare candidate. But people are fed up. I believe that McCain is the ONLY person the Republicans could have nominated with the proverbial snowball’s chance in hell of winning. I’m not convinced that the nuclear option (attacks-wise) would convert voters who are undecided at this point. I suspect the economy is the way to their votes. I’m worried, too. But John McCain should not be blamed if (God forbid), he loses. The blame for that belongs in the White House.

  • Artemis

    If the McCain campaign requested the Whitey Tape not be used, then I guess that shows McCain is principled…but not practical. The NY Times bashes Cindy McCain, but doesn’t dare mention Obama’s drug use, the MSM attempts to destroy the Palin family with the most vile, reprehensible tripe but plays down the Rev. Wright story, Obama’s ads focus on McCain’s cancer, they also misstate his stance on stem-cell research, ridicule his inability to use a computer, etc. etc. — If you go into the ring determined to box according to the rules and your opponent brings a switchblade and a stun gun…who do you think is going to win? America NEEDS and DESERVES the truth, so I hope the McCain camp will begin to fight back.

  • beverly leslie

    It would be nice if you let others express their opinion without threatning to switch your vote and telling them how absurd they are. This is the first post like this in a long time, why not let the people express themselves? So what if you don’t agree, from your previous posts we Get It.

    Frankly, I live in Southern California am extremely liberal and no one is going to push me to vote for Oblah because I don’t agree with what they are saying. I’m also not going to hold my vote over anyone’s head, with the if you do this crap, you’ll lose my vote.

    Vote however you want but quit using it as a threat, it’s childish.

  • OBAMA IS A TRAITOR

    With all due respect AnninCa….I am a moderate and registered Independent. I just can’t let my own rhetoric get in the way of saving this country. You might be one of the few people I have seen blogging here that still thinks this country would survive an Obama Presidency. Most people I know, moderate or not, are terrified. By Obama and Biden’s OWN statements. The Biden comment yesterday was atrocious. And very telling about what is to come. At this point, yeah, we might lose a vote or two from someone with their heels in the ground. Oh well. If you are so on the fence about McCain then we can’t stop you anyway and threats are sort of silly. Your vote is your vote to use how you feel comfortable. But every day I convert more people, every day, and pretty much that is based on TRUTH about Obama. Because as we all know, the truth isn’t pretty. It’s not about liberal vs. conservative. That race was abandoned back in the Primary when Obama committed the fraud that stole Hillary’s nomination. And then everything after. The truth is simply not acceptable for ANY candidate and Obama must be stopped. I was born and will die in America. Not Cuba.

    The Whitey Tape–None of my three main sources on who told me about the existence of a video recording of Michelle Obama making disparaging comments about white folks have backed off. Two of these sources are Democrats and are journalists. They were not trying to sabotage the Obama campaign. They were passing on something they believed to be true. The fact that my third source, a person who lives on the West Coast and is a Republican, has no ties whatsoever to the other two but told the same story persuaded me this “tape” exists. My Republican friend tells me that the McCain campaign intervened and requested the tape not be used.

    There also is the fact that the Obama campaign at one point circulated the lame story that Michelle was not using “whitey” as an epithet. Nope. She was saying, “Why’d he.” You don’t put out a story line like that if such a recording does not exist. At this point I don’t think it is going to be used.

    Larry as much as I appreciated coming to this blog and respect you for what you created for us here, this is a very lame excuse.

    I am not a lawyer but I thought the DNC has asked for a delay and the judge in the case still has not ruled.

    I have little to no faith in our Judicial System. And my reason for that goes way beyond this situation.

    Time and time again, the Judges do not seem to care about the American People at all. I don’t mean that Judges should let public opinion alter their take on the law, what I mean is, in those situations where a Judge has discretion.. it seems that so often the result of the decision is not one that favors us.

    Now in a case like this.. would kill it the idiot judge to get this case over with one way or another? What the hell takes so freakin long.

    It drives me crazy that our legal system will grant Constitutional rights to people who want to destroy the United States and yet no one can assure the American people that NØbama is even eligible to be President.

    I have been in a state of profound disillusionment about the government of this country since 2006 and things are getting logarithmicly worse by the day.

  • oowawa

    Thank you requiredreading for the calm and rational voice. I feel that it is already too late for the fabled Whitey tape to make a significant difference anyway. Comet Obama is on collision course with the Earth and is due to strike on Nov. 4. We all long for a “deus ex machina” to change the outcome in the last scene of the last act, but the Whitey Tape is not it. It would be too little, too late, and would only open McCain up to renewed charges of desperation and racism. The only “deus ex machina” that could work at this late date is the Kenyan birth certificate. If only Larry Sinclair would have kept that kleenex he used to wipe off his mouth . . .

    Go to Huffpost and fucking stay there. You have no sense of this situation at all and need to go back to your fern filled, macramaed, peace signed, black light fucking room and STAY THERE!. Listen to Neil Young whine about what-the-fuck-ever on your record player and go back to 1971.

    Why would anyone think it dishonorable of McCain to show the “whitey” tape? If it’s out there than it’s fair game. Americans should know who they’re electing and their basic values. If such a tape exists it is racist but not on McCain’s part-rather on Michelle’s part. Obama has pointed that finger at way too many people this past year and I suspect previously to get ahead. It’s time we stop dancing around the issue. If someone would change their vote from McCain because McCain used it, I don’t think you’re thinking it through. The Obama camp would have used a tape of Cindy in a heartbeat and if it were true, that would be a reason not to vote for McCain not the other way around.

  • NCgirl

    I think you are a troll in disguise.

  • JML

    Unfortunately, I feel that McCain has no choice but to ask that the “Whitey Tape” be supressed. If the tape leaked and then word got out that McCain knew about it beforehand, the outrage would not be about the tape. The outrage would be about McCain being a racist and he would be depicted as someone who encouraged racism and hatred of Black Americans. Or something.

    It’s bizarro-world in this election. It really is.

    Having said that, I’m disappointed in any journalist who might have the tape or have first-hand evidence of it, such as having viewed it themselves. Their job is to release information that is pertinent to the public. I don’t consider the existence of a “Whitey Tape,” if there is one, to be “classified.” It’s not the same as, say, military secrets. A future first lady ranting on about ANYTHING of socio-political significance is pertinent.

    I am for all practical purposes, a white woman. However, I have an Asian last name because I married outside of my race. On my family tree, if you go back several generations, there is a branch that is Black. Granted, it’s laughable to say out loud that I’m “1/64th Black” and expect that it means anything to anyone, but my point is that both by blood and by choices I accept the value of all who make up our great country and you’d NEVER catch me disparaging an entire race based on stereotypes. I HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW, dear journalists, if this woman, Mrs. Obama, who wants to represent me on the world stage as First Lady, holds herself to the same standard.

  • Firefly

    Well, the first thing that comes to mind when you say you couldn’t care less about what he does/says about his personal life but,

    I do care about what he’s planning to do if attacked.

    is that he’d LIE and cheat and sell us out, like he does about everything else.

    THAT’S WHY the issues of his character are so important – his CHARACTER will cause him to lie and cheat and obfuscate in everything he does. That he does that as a private citizen I couldn’t care less about. That he would do it as president of the United States makes him, at the very least, A NATIONAL SECURITY RISK.

  • AnnieO

    I think Biden was saying that BO can’t keep his campaign promises (getting out of Iraq, healthcare, etc) by saying that if BO’s decisions are popular then they will not be sound.

    I think he’s also warning that when BO is tested, he will have to reinstitute the draft or create a military service requirement when he talks about the weakness in the military, which would also be very unpopular.

  • Judy

    OT – The rumor (via columnist Michael Sneed of the Sun-Times) is that Obama is insisting that his successor to his Senate seat, following his coronation, has to be an AA and that person may very well be Valerie Jarrett. Jarrett is the daughter-in-law of the late columnist, Vernon Jarrett and the daughter of Dr. James Bowman, a pathologist and geneticist. Jarrett, who hired Michelle for her job in the Daley administration, then went on to become the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the University of Chicago Medical Center and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the U of C. Michelle, of course, just coincidentally landed a $300,000+ job at U of C Medical Center after Jarrett landed on the U of C boards.

    Jarrett, being somewhat less illustrious than other members of her family, is the head of The Habitat Company, a firm that manages some privatized housing for low-income residents. One property that Habitat managed was Grove Parc, a property that “has become a symbol for some in Chicago of the broader failures of giving public subsidies to private companies to build and manage affordable housing – an approach strongly backed by Obama as the best replacement for public housing.” Under Habitat, “a maintenance worker at the complex says money often wasn’t even available for steel wool to plug rat holes.”

    Jarrett is part of the Rezko cesspool of Chicago low-income property developers/managers and apparently she may be my next senator. I’m so excited!

    Zogby employees up in Utica, NY also say the race is tied. Zogby polls way more Democrats and that is why the results show as they do.

    Rasmussen is 4 again today. I think this is good news.
    I also discount most every body involved in trying to get the truth out about Obama except for
    Andy Martin. Remember folks the governor of Hawaii is a friend of Sarah Palin’s and a Republican so lets hope she can be persuaded in Andy’s suit and I “betcha” she can be.

  • tzada

    Why is it not important that Barack Obama may not be a citizen of the USA?

    Michelle Obama is not a changed person. She and Barack are racists and associate with racists. It may not be important to you but I am one of the millions that they hate.

    Barack Obama would not even be hired for most jobs, due to his lack of experience and his radical leanings. He would also be required to provide proof of citizenship for some jobs. He would also have to provide his Selective Service registration proof, his college records, drug testing, medical records and some references.

    It is puzzling to me, why you think the vetting process should not be done. It is even more important than some of the other issues that you would redirect to. This will not go away until all questions are answered.

  • jrterrier

    I am sorry but if there were a Whitey tape, I think it would have leaked. Or it should.

  • HC

    “I do care about what he’s planning to do if attacked.”

    Obama will convene a committee to discuss the matter, then confer with the UN to issue a strong condemnation of the event. Then he will go meet with Chavez and Brother-of-Fidel to “forge relationships based on trust”. After that he will hold a huge rally to urge all of us to Hope for Change. Bruce Springsteen might show up for that part.

    If security is your voting issue, you should vote McCain without reference to the whitey tape.

    But ask yourself – why would you want to prevent the rest of America from hearing this tape or suggest that airing it is somehow underhanded or out of line?

    The comment, if true, speaks volumes about Mrs. Obama’s character and by association her husband’s.

    Character matters to just about everyone and it IS relevant.

    come on, McCain has a sense of honour that is lost to this generation. He ain’t like Bush and definitely not like obama. McCain knows obama isn’t honourable, so he doesn’t like obama. but pulling the tapes out in public is NOT honourable for him. the 527′s may do it, but not with McCains permission. McCain rather lose the election than be dishonourable. and dont blame larry. he is telling you the truth as he has been told. and its his blog. so either understand what he is saying or exit.

  • Deb

    Whew- so many tough issues for McCain and his team to ponder.

    The Whitey tape- if it exists- and Jeremiah Wright- who does, are gut-wrenching for a guy like McCain to exploit.

    McCain was genuinely shocked by the incendiary and outrageous remarks of John Lewis. At the same time pundits like Gergen and Carville fan the flames and basically THREATEN McCain and the country with racial riots and rage in the streets if he wins.

    McCain well remembers, as do many of us, the really ugly and evil racism that Lewis was talking about- and the FACT that nothing in the character of McCain-Palin reflects that, seems not to matter a whit to these people.

    Given the subtle threats, the outright charges from the left of racism at every turn- put yourself in McCain’s spot. Would YOU want to be PERCEIVED as being responsible for re-igniting the 60′s? Because you know damn well that’s what they’re thinking. Code Pink is already planning for it- just in case. McCain is being blackmailed.

    If it were up to me- I’d have released the whitey tapes (if they exist) back in July or August. Now? I’m not sure.

    -Thugocracy
    -Fairness Doctrine
    -Unilateral Disarmament
    -Appeasement

    are things that only the Right oppose?

    Are you saying that those things typify the full spectrum of the Left?

    I disagree. In my old quaint understanding of this country… Marxism was Anti-American not Anti-Right.

    Shutting down political discourse was an attack on the Bill of Rights.. not a cause for the Left to rally around.

    Some corners of the Left have made it perfectly clear to everyone… if Conservatives take a position on an issue, then they will take the opposite stand.. no matter what.

    And so , somehow, things like fighting Jihad have become a “Conservative” issue. Why the hell is that? Everyone should be against Muslims bringing their nasty backward culture here and steadily and stealthy imposing it on us.. as is their religious-mandated agenda.

    I resent that parts of the Left have managed to create these false dichotomies.

    They are the death of this country.

    Actually, it may be just the opposite. From a post on Berg’s site:

    This seriously erodes my confidence in the credibility of Mr. Berg.

    Mr. Berg apparently doesn’t understand basic civil procedure.

    Discovery cannot be served before the parties have conducted a discovery conference. See Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(d). Because that hasn’t been done yet, Mr. Berg’s discovery is improper and need not be responded to.

    Second, a motion for a protective order is a response to a discovery request and relieves the moving party from the obligation to respond until the motion is resolved by the court. See Rule 26(c) and the cases interpreting that rule.

    Is Mr. Berg ruining this case because he’s an incompetent attorney, or is he sabotaging the case on purpose?

    Is there any way for a competent and dedicated attorney to intervene and take this over so it is handled right and we don’t get thrown out for failing to follow the procedural rules?

    If any of these tapes are around they should be released before it is too late. Having someone with these characteristics in office or associated with the Presidents office could be very dangerous.
    As for the BC, I hope this is resolved before the election.

    As for all of the allegations, if anyone in the campaigns, especially the higher ups have known about them, then they should have brought it forward.

    A few months ago Bill said he had a lot of stuff to tell the nation but would not do so until Jan. If it is legal stuff than it should be brought forward. If Obama is not eligible to be President he is committing fraud, even if he wins that would/should be an impeachable offense.

    I agree too. While I’m a registered Dem, I’m actually proud of the Republicans for avoiding anything having to do with race. I think it is worth it to take the high road on issues like that. I think the way to go is just having someone like Palin or Giuliani mention that they don’t know how Obama can say he sat in Wright’s church for 20 years and never heard anything controversial and that he isn’t being truthful.

    What’s funny to me is that nobody seems to doubt that Meeechelle would go on a loud, vicious, racist, nasty rant against “whitey” – or anybody else, for that matter. It’s just soooo in her character (and Jeremiah’s and all her other friends’) to do that.

    All that seems to be in doubt (from some) is that someone managed to videotape her doing it and/or that the tape is in the hands of the republicans.

    Myself, I don’t doubt any of it one bit. The only thing I’m not sure of is whether they’ll use it.

    It does seem, though, that the NYT hit piece on Cindy McCain might have had something to do with the tape – or the fear of it.

He was spreading the rumor that an Obot came in and told him “the plumber was a plant…he’s an actor hired by the republicans….oh, good they’ll get their’s, I’m so happy this came out.” The woman was “oh, thank you, I was in a bad mood, but now I’m happy.” The the postal worker sat there going “yeah, and what’s with his arms, he looks like a robot”. Then the woman said “and his wife, she looks like a stepford wife”.

    …I was just in shock with my mouth hanging open listening to this…IN THE POST OFFICE.

    An excerpt from your piece published on DU Oct. 20, 2008:

    Despite all of the current (and downright pitiable) rhetoric, the truth is that on their best day, the Republican Party could not have sired a son like Barrack Obama, no less raised him to manhood.

    In the midst of their hatred and bigotry, they could not have nurtured his sense of equality, nor his hunger for true justice – not for the few, but for all. In their desperate need to cling to ignorance, they could not have taught him to become a seeker of the truth, a man whose moral compass is a reality rather than a meaningless talking point to be trotted out when convenient.

    Completely disagree with you. McCain has run a decent campaign. He is running as a Republican in a time when Republicans are extremely unpopular; he’s running against a candidate with a huge war chest (a significant amount of which is from undisclosed sources); and he is also running against the media, who have given up their role of reporting the facts and are instead an extension of the Obama campaign.

  • Zeke

    Bev,
    Great quote!
    I am sometimes literally “awed” by the great wisdom which was laid down over two hundred years ago and still applies DIRECTLY to our situation.
    I am seeing the Declaration and the Constitution more and more, each day, as a letter from the wisest father to his children. A permanent missive intended to protect and guide, firm in its foundation, based on real truth.
    The founding fathers thought this through so clearly.
    How, so long ago, they could anticipate problems and provide concrete answers to issues that we face is amazing in a way and just plain obvious in another.
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident…” is something this nation has forgotten to a degree I never thought possible.
    When McCain wins, we must get back to those two documents.

  • workingclass artist

    admissions questios is elementary and separate to the Discovery….Barky has to respond to it. It is different than providing the documents.
    I have been through this and learned the hard way.
    Because my atty. never gave me the q’s my entire case was almost thrown out…and my atty. in a panic quit the case.
    I also found out that this was why another lawyer wouldn’t take my case…it is that basic and that harmful…Barky was required to respond to the admissions/Deny request…
    The admissions/deny is standard to discovery but is not quite the same thing…2 different things but related. you can delay and fight discovery all you want…that is what a discovery conference is about…but admissions/deny is different…you have to respond within the time period…period!
    FAILURE TO RESPOND IS A BIG MISTAKE!

    The NYT just did a hit piece on Cindy McCain. These things have a way of backfiring. I’m not sure if releasing the infamous whitey tape would be a good idea. Obots aren’t going to turn their back on their messiah. I don’t think people aren’t going to hear the tape and have a sudden epiphany. They will spin fantasies and denials around even the most blatent evidence.

    It would sure be fun to hear the tape, but I’m not sure if it’s what’s best for the campaign.

    Makes sense

    I think the WH briefing both campaigns had suggested to Joe somehting will go down adn Joe having to look like the omniscent brilliant one, promised it would,

    I think Joe expects Iran to strike Israel and he further expects Obummer to do nothing to help except negotiate a new Palestinian border after the fact

    yep

    but no worries MAC/PALINwill be sworn in as 44 and VEEP 44

    but the way ACORN is shaking out, i expect protracted legal battles see OH NC MO MI VA where OPbummer is stealing votes..so it may be a slightly delayed swearing in while Obummer uses the Odinga playbook for how to threaten your way to power

    of course Obummer will find in a strong Consitutional Republic like ours, the Odinga playbook doesnt work

    then MAC/PALIN will be sworn in

    W00T!!

    Show him Biden’s comments and spell out the connection between his prediction for attack, his telling us (and our enemies) that our military is not strong, and summing up with his assertion that Obama will provide a decision people will not understand.
    Connect the dots for him- this is his own running mate, if your brother won’t believe you, let him hear from someone who knows for sure.
    You might then want to link to the videos of Obama vowing to lower America’s defense and start a civilian army.
    Also, there were great arcticles here on NQ regarding the ‘community service’ requirements Obama will institute.

    I think its a pity we don’t get to see it and judge for ourselves. If a potential first lady is a racist, I think the American people have a right to know what they’re getting into when they vote.

I recently heard from an elderly relative of mine, who lives in WA state, loves Alaska, is an independent type, & who gave me the standard anti-Palin spiel that they heard on msnbc!

    Have you been paying attention to the MSM at all? And who they give credence to? I know most of us here try to avoid the MSM, but you and I both know that if the Whitey Tape were released — again, if it exists, that is — the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world would be denoucing the use of the tape and anybody who gave the tape a second thought would be branded a racist. The outrage would be manipulated to land in the wrong spot.

    Good thread Larry. Maybe folks will at least balance more the lawsuits and alleged tapes with making calls and volunteering for the Mac campaign.

    Interesting how this became a referendum on Ann. Ignore her comments or refute them. She thinks the lawsuits and alleged tapes are a waste of time. Others think they are the best chance at stopping The Precious. Me, I think somewhere in between, heavily favoring the more traditional campaigning, phone calls, etc. If Mac gets enough votes in key states, he wins and as Larry pointed out the controversy surrounding The Precious will continue but will become a moot point except maybe for US Attorney Fitzgerald to investigate and Andy Martin to write books.

    The purpose of this thread was to air certain issues, so keep airing them maybe without accusing regulars of being trolls? Some times I agree with Ann, some times not, but sometimes she makes observations I would never even think of. I think Ann is just trying to get people to focus on the more doable as she sees it, but does it in what people are considering an abrasive manner extreme to the side of “that lawsuit is a waste of time” (paraphrased). I don’t think it is a waste of time but the eggs in basket metaphor applies.

    McCain “Totally” Proud of Anti-Obama Mailer Invoking Terror, 9/11

    A Missouri TV reporter asks McCain about an RNC flyer that depicts a jumbo jet on its cover, followed by a photo of the Illinois Senator.
    Mailer says Obama “thinks terrorists just need a good talking to” and is “not who you think he is.” Being mailed in Missouri and Virginia.

    Asked if he is proud of it, McCain responds: “totally.” Click here to watch.

    Yes I was over at the Chicago Political Machine at AOL and I think it was Tommy Christopher trying to associate John McCaine with David Duke because they happened to be at the Senate the same day. John went to something for MLK and precious didn’t but somehow John didn’t hold his mouth right and he was the bad guy once again.

    We voters have been accused of racism over and over and over. John and Sarah have been trashed on everything. Joe the plumber has too. Yet the true racist Barack and Michelle Obama get a pass. This offends me. No matter what race you are it should offend you as well.

    “Knowledge is the first thing eradicated once power is attained. History has repeated this over and over again.” Steve Berry in “The Alexandria Link”

    We see knowledge suppression daily from the MSM and it will be put in effect by the Fairness Doctrine that Polosi is pushing, should Obama be elected.

    Whatever John decides is ok by me. I prefer it to come out in a 527, but I do want it to come out.

    If you are so shallow that the truth offends you, Obama will fix you right up with honeyed lies. Go to the far left and volunteer.

    Make no doubt about it we are at war for America’s Freedom. In battle if you don’t have a gun you grab a rolling pin.

    John McCain would get down in the trenches and fight side by side with us. Sarah would too. It is my opinion that Barack Obama would sneak out in the night and hand the keys to the enemy.

    You own your vote and we own ours.

    If no whitey tape comes out I will never be convinced that it just wasn’t used – it didn’t exist is the only explanation. If it does exist, it would make sense to have a trail in which McCain argued against its release, then when it is released he can say it was over his strong objection and he condemns it.

    Bottom line: if it exists it will come out and if it doesn’t come out it didn’t exist.

    No-one here has been more positive about McCain winning than I have. I have said over and over that Obama didn’t have a prayer, that the polls are skewed 6 points for Obama, and that the strategy all along has been to let him have a lead and then take him like a racehorse in the final turn. Well it’s about the final turn now so either our horse makes some strong moves soon or I was wrong. And I’m never wrong!

    The Hawaii Supreme Court was petitioned to order Obama’s birth records released.-Monday-10/20/08-HAWAII DOCKET NUMBER: 29414…

    I don’t mean to be cynical however, could it explain Obama’s need to visit “Toot” in Hawaii? He suddenly discovered that his grandmother, who suffers from osteoporosis, had taken a fall and had been released from the hospital last week, when he and Michelle showed no concern, now needs his immediate attention…
    According to a campaign spokesperson, her health had deteriorated “to the point where her situation is very serious.” IF the situation is so dire, and Granny is in her “final days”, I find it curious as to why the entire family is not accompanying Obama. Instead Michelle is going out on the campaign stump? Curiouser and Curiouser…..

    Kind of makes you wonder about the polls, especially when it seems that the kids are very excited about Obama but yet there is only a 2% difference, versus a 4% between Bush/Kerry

    Patience is a virtue, and the GOP has the patience that voters do not have!

    Frustration on the part of voters is becoming more apparent every day, wanting and demanding things be exposed NOW about Obama, calm down people!

    Look at the manipulative people the GOP are dealing with, Axelrod for one, the extrodinary manipulator of lies and Obama the Pathological liar have to be dealt with in a certain way!

    History of the primaries has proven visa vie the lies over Selma to NAFTA and even Race that this bunch of manipulators given time will spin things to their advantage and use their surrogates to pound home the propeganda and lies, including Hillary.

    Obama has laid the schedule down with his Infomercial a week tomorrow, 6 days prior to the election. Experience has proven over and over again it takes Camp Obama 3 days to come up with a reasonable answer to any form of attack!

    So think like an opponent for a moment, with Obama taking stage at 8PM EST next Weds, when is the best time to commence attacking, for those unable to think, it is at 5PM EST thus throwing Obama’s infomercial off balance and commencing a spin to begin with the Chicago dirtbags. People you forget the day after Obama’s glorious stadium speech after stealing the DNP nomination, how the GOP killed his thunder by introducing Palin the following morning?

    The GOP has all its cannons loaded and fixed and it will begin unleashing them next week and continue to election day, thus not allowing Axelrod a moment to attempt spins on it, since Axelrod requires focus groups to do anything, Obama will be crushed by his own life he created in America!

    So calm the hell down and let the pro’s do what they do best!

    This idea that McCain has asked that a whitey tape not be used is just a rumor. At most he might have said “if” such a tape exists he didn’t want it used. But no-one has any documentation of that, although it makes sense. If such a tape exists it will be released and when it is it will be desirable for whoever released it to say “yes McCain begged us not to use it but screw him, we’re here to stop Obama not to bow down to a man who is merely the UNbama.”

    Bill Clinton is also telling people to vote early… and telling them to vote quickly as they have monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday etc. to vote before voting day…

    And he said he was there because Hillary asked him. He also said Palin has just the same if not more experience than Barack Obama and that she is very smart.

    Bill is no fool – just wish he would come out and say what he obviously knows. Of course that would mean he really is a racist.

    NC girl, although it is tempting to get frustrated with JM, I think he knows just how much this man, BO, means to his followers. These people who have believed him are going to be devestated when they finally find out the truth about this man. JM seeks to be POTUS, and that includes Obama supportors. If he can win the race without the tape, he seeks to do that. To expose the tape w/o it being imperative may cause racial unrest in this country the likes of which we have never seen.
    If push comes to shove, and this BC thing doesn’t come to fruition then we may see the RNC usurp McCain and “leak” the tape w/o McCain’s approval. one thing is for sure: thing’s should be hot and heavy in the next two weeks.

    OT, I think Biden has had a meltdown, and I am not sure why, but something is amiss. He can’t bail, and BO can’t dismiss him, but no scheduled appearances for the next two weeks? BO suspended his campaign until Saturday? Very odd timing. Despite Biden saying International crisis, that does not rule out the BC being at the heart of it. If BO is not a legal citizen of the USA, then that makes him a citizen of another country, thus it is an International crisis.
    None of us can do any more than speculate what he meant, but that explaination does match some of what he was saying.
    You guys ever see any Espionage type thrillers where somebody inadvertently finds out more than they want to know, and then in an effort to save themselves start babbling in public and people are trying to figure out what the hell is wrong? Kindof a “The Firm” type situation. What if Biden is trying desperately to tell us something w/o saying the exact words? With all the money riding behind BO, I would be completely desperate if I were Joe Biden, knew something important, and was hoping this guy will get caught.
    It’s just a thought…
    But what if Joe isn’t doing any more appearances at his own behest? The Obama Camp certainly wouldn’t announce it.

    It seems to me that Andy Martin would have had a better chance of getting a court to look seriously at this if he had not been representing himself. Whether fair or not,courts tend to look upon these lawsuits as crackpot suits, and go out of their way to find a reason to toss them. I expect that is what will happen here (and ultimately in the Berg case as well).

    I still think that the best avenue in which to pursue this would be to persuade a state electoral college member to file this action prior to the vote of the Electoral College.

    Obama is Obama’s problem. Obama needs to blame Obama.

    Remove his, Obama’s “race” and tell me why you are voting or think of voting for him, or is it change? Change what? He is a democrat? Really.

    How can Obama change something he does not know or understand?

    If you are talking about real change, then that is why Sen. John McCain team will do a better job changing anything because he understood what the problem is.

  • Jackie

    McCain will not use the race card.

    He is an honorable man from an ear when chivalry wasn’t entirely dead.

    It is time we revive the honor system. Barack Obama has no honor nor would he understand the concept if it were presented to him with pictures.

    Barack Obama is a creature of convenience and will use or abuse anything or anyone to get what he wants.

    He supports failed ideaologies–I stood at the foot of the Berlin wall as it opened. A testimony to the failure of re-distribution and state planned economies.

    John McCain is our best hope.

  • tj

    The things holding back the Republicain party are those you just mentioned. Al Sharpton, Rev Jesse Jackson, NAACP exc…
    The problem I see here is that there is no one looking out for everyone else, only the AAs. In a way we fear them and in that perspective try to not do things to call controversey upon ourselves. Many fear being called a racist or a KKK member. If society allows itself to be controlled by a certain race or culture then they are equally to blame. We should not have to fear playing a tape with racist comments. If the individual is truely saying such things it should be shown and no excuses made for it. If the situation were reversed there would be no hesitation.

    First we have the fake templated Birth Certificate,
    then we have the forgery on FactCheck.
    The one on FactCheck DOES NOT have the official Seal of the Department of Health, State of Hawaii.

    There is NO way to verify where it came from.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scjF5oB-JXk

    and

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIsQJNTvlUE

    That’s incorrect. syc1959 is blowing smoke up your ass.

    With regard to the first video, he’s comparing apples to oranges.

    The embossed seal used on the DeCosta certificate was larger than the embossed seal used on newer certificates. The newer seal being smaller, the text is not as legible as it is on the larger seal.

    The embossed seal on Obama’s certificate is identical to the embossed seal used on more contemporary certificates, such as this one issued to “Michele” in 2008:

    SKMBT_C45008071717410.jpg

    I pointed this fact out to syc1959 in a reply to his video, however my reply was soon deleted by him.

    In the second video, which I’m just looking at now, he says that on his certificate, it was registered some days after his birth, and claims that on Obama’s certificate, it was registered the same day as his birth. To wit:

    Also notice that uh, the date that I was born was May 5th, however that this was recorded on uh, May 14th. You’ll notice that Obama’s was apparently done on the same day he was born. This uh really should cause some uh suspicions within itself.

    That’s factually incorrect. Obama’s certificate gives his date of birth as August 4th, and the date it was registered is given as August 8th.

    Again, syc1959′s simply lying to you here.

    He also mentions that the seal on his certificate is visible, but that the seal on the scanned image of Obama’s certificate is not.

    This also is incorrect. In the full size scanned image at FactCheck (as opposed to the scaled down image on Obama’s website), the seal is evident without any enhancement, though it’s not easily seen because it was a rather poorly done scan with the brightness/contrast jacked around so that lightly shadowed areas were blown out.

    However with edge enhancement, the seal is readily visible.

    Next, he says that the image on Obama’s website shows no fold lines. That’s technically true but only because the image on Obama’s website is of much lower resolution than the full resolution san on FactCheck’s website.

    And if you look at that image, you will see the top fold. The bottom fold isn’t evident because the tiny ridges created by folding are much shallower in the bottom fold than in the top fold (which is evidenced in the photographs) and weren’t picked up in the scanning process.

    As for the altering in PhotoShop, this is a red herring. Again, the image on Obama’s website was scaled down from its original size. Simply resizing an image in PhotoShop and saving it out will show that it was “altered.”

    That syc1959 insists on using the low resolution image on Obama’s website instead of the full resolution image on FactCheck just shows that he’s intentionally being less than honest.

    Either that or he’s just incompetent and has no business talking about digital imaging and graphics.

    Lurker here. Still love this blog despite great disappointment with “no tape.”
    Remember Anninca from Huff and Lars from TM-I posted at both, ran off of Huff and stopped reading TM. Ann-she is not a koolaid person(i had her as 1 of my favs),Lars-he speaks for himself.

    That said-this whole pre-election reminds me so much of Bush 2004.I so desparately wanted the press to followup on anything re Bush(drinking, mil duty,leadup to war)-nothing. So here we are and the press is giving us W the II.

    Obama is Eddiee Haskell to me.His campaign run like Animal Farm.
    He has used the AA population and the youth and the ex-hippies.
    Anyone remember his debate on ABC with Hillary-he stated that he would change affirmative action-no one remembers because they felt George S.was mean to him.
    OK-thats it-nothing will improve if Eddie gets in-oops-the O.

  • socalannie

    I’m a moderate. In fact, I used to consider myself quite liberal.

    Anninca (if that is really AnninCA & not a troll taking her screen name) seems confused about what playing the race card is; playing the race card refers to accusing someone of being racist because they don’t agree with you. For instance, when Bill Clinton talked about the SC primary, the O campaign & the media played the race card on him. When Geraldine made a statement about Barack that was in essence the same thing he said about himself, repeatedly, I might add, she was dealt the race card. It’s a political ploy that involves twisting someones words or thoughts into something they are not.

    Playing a video of someone who is running for office making a racist rant & using racist epithets is not playing the race card…it is simply NEWS. Michele Obama is out on the campaign trail, campaigning for her hubbie to be Prez & for herself to be First Lady. She will be representing America over & over if they win.

    We have a right to know who she really is, and that is not “playing the race card”.

    Man, doesn’t this go right to the root?
    We are watching an honorable man being assaulted by a cheating, lying, evil intended group of worthless Motherf**kers and we know that someone, someplace, has a game breaker nuke in his pocket which would literally hand him the election. Given the stakes in this soirée, losing seems hardly an option but to win requires applying the same “ends justify the means” philosophy that the other sonsofbitches always use.
    I believe that McCain is seeing further down the road than we are and has concluded that at this time, he will ask that it be kept under wraps.
    I think that Sen. McCain, a dude whose personal honor is paramount to him, would absolutely hate having to resort to its use considering that the election will, at that time, become totally about race.
    If there is a DonnaBrazilleRiot nationwide as a result, race relations in America will cease to exist.
    So, even though it exists and is totally damning, McCain is hoping for anything else to be the cause of his victory. Rezko and Ayers connections to Obama are still holding out hope for that to happen and there are still a number of Joe Biden speeches to hear, so McCain is holding that last-option bomb close to his vest.
    In a do-or-die finale, I think that somebody will push that button. Believing as I do that Obama will never give up power if he gets it, I think I would.

  • C.S.

    Sounds like the tiniest, teeniest hint of possible, maybe, racism and you’re ready to toss McCain out.

    Close-up on juvenile justice
    Author, former offender among speakers

    By Jennifer Vanasco
    News Office

    Children who kill are called “super predators,” “people with no conscience,” “feral pre-social beings” — and “adults.”

    William Ayers, author of A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court (Beacon Press, 1997), says “We should call a child a child. A 13-year-old who picks up a gun isn’t suddenly an adult. We have to ask other questions: How did he get the gun? Where did it come from?”

    Ayers, who spent a year observing the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago, is one of four panelists who will speak on juvenile justice at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the C-Shop. The panel, which marks the 100th anniversary of the juvenile justice system in the United States, is part of the Community Service Center’s monthly discussion series on issues affecting the city of Chicago. The event is free and open to the public.

    Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system; Randolph Stone, Director of the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic; Alex Correa, a reformed juvenile offender who spent seven years in Cook County Temporary Detention Center; Frank Tobin, a former priest and teacher at the Detention Center who helped Correa; and Willy Baldwin, who grew up in public housing and is currently a teacher at the Detention Center.

    The juvenile justice system was founded by Chicago reformer Jane Addams, who advocated the establishment of a separate court system for children which would act like a “kind and just parent” for children in crisis.

    One hundred years later, the system is “overcrowded, under-funded, over-centralized and racist,” Ayers said.

    Michelle Obama, Associate Dean of Student Services and Director of the University Community Service Center, hopes bringing issues like this to campus will open a dialogue between members of the University community and the broader community.

    “Students and faculty explore these issues in the classroom, but it is an internal conversation,” Obama said. “We know that issues like juvenile justice impact the city of Chicago, this nation and — directly or indirectly — this campus. This panel gives students a chance to hear about the juvenile justice system not only on a theoretical level, but from the people who have experienced it.”

  • Shiloh

    I’ve been saying for months that the polls have a 6 point bias for Obama, some of it intentional some not. The undecideds are just part of it. There is also sampling errors, the Bradley/Obama effect and more. Consider this: there are supposedly record numbers of people refusing to participate in polls. There is no way to correct for this. The polls are necessarily based on the assumption that those who do not respond will end up voting the same as those who do. This is a very weak assumption this time since those not responding are intimidated by being called racist. That’s the Obama Effect.

  • looking for integrity

    I disagree with anninca on a number of things, primarily because I have seen Obama at (not) work in Chicago, and we have been witnesses to his unethical tactics.

    Ann, I’m not sure why you are not voting for Obama, but am also not sure why you would risk getting him as president. We have seen enough of his behavior to know what an Obama presidency would look like and develop into.

    That said, I have seen some of Ann’s posts up on Taylor Marsh (an Obot) and she does distance herself from the Democratic Party and Obama. So I think she is being sincere.

    It is VERY difficult for democrat liberals to make the move to vote for a republican president because it means reneging on the beliefs you said were yours.

    Ann, just as I believe in the 1st amendment, and respect your views, I would expect the same from you.

    Obama’s campaign and he himself have lied so many times, and engaged in manipulative unethical behavior that I want to regurgitate.

    I believe in bringing out information if it is true and as long as it has no spin and is not hurtful to a family (such as the making public of a file that Jack and Jerry Ryan had had sealed to protect their son, or the biased and negative “article” about Cindy McCain in the NYT). I believe that if Obama had a tape with Cindy McCain saying racist things about blacks, I would want to have that made public because it would exemplify how blacks may be treated under an administration where the wife is racist. I feel the same way about this tape.

    If it were a sex tape about an affair a la Paris Hilton, then I’d say no way – and would agree with you.

    Race relations are a very sensitive issue for all races, and I would want to know because prejudice colors legislation, and policies, in fact every walk of life.

    Not sure about Illinois, but in my state, inactive status is determined by the attorney, and is typically chosen when the attorney will not be practicing before the courts of the state during the year. Lawyers on inactive status cannot practice law, but the bar dues are cheaper and one can change from inactive to active within 24 hours, if necessary, so long as you pay the pro-rated dues that are owing. Not sure what Illinois means when it says “court ordered” inactive status…

  • hadenough

    Palin makes a funny:

    Palin fed off the words of Obama’s running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, who said Sunday that Obama would be challenged by an international crisis in his first six months of office. During a rally at the Reno Convention Center, Palin listed four scenarios “that would place our country at risk in an Obama administration,” including sitting down with dictators and sending American troops to Pakistan over the objections of the country’s leader.

    “But I guess the looming crisis that most worries the Obama campaign right now is Joe Biden’s next speaking engagement,” Palin said. “Let’s call that crisis scenario number five.”

  • McHope

    McCain does of course want to win and so does Gov Palin.

    How did our culture evolve to the point of blaming the victim for not anticipating the con artist cheater’s actions with precise accuracy?
    Just like Hillary was blamed for not knowing Obama and ACORN would commit caucus fraud.

    Just because McCain has previously said he was not in favor of using the Wright issue at the time, does not mean it negates it’s importance. You know what Wright said,I know what Wright said.Everyone can see that Obama idolized him, and then lied about it. You don’t need John McCain to tell you that.

    We also don’t need a whitey tape to prove either Obama would disrespect Bill Clinton. They already have during the primaries. Anyone who could vote for Obama was not a real Clinton supporter. As for the term itself, ‘whitey’ is used frequently by those with whom the Obama’s frequently associate, there needs to be no tape to prove their approval of the term.

    An issue that seems relevant and has not been dicussed in the media at all is Obama’s Odinga connection. There are serious political maniputlations and dangerous support of Anti American policies at play there. There are documented dealings and campaign advice between them in which the end result was either Sharia Law or Genocide of African Christians. These are recent events and are startling.

    OT~
    In the ongoing effort to figure out WHY Obama supporters are imune to any of these facts, has anyone following the theory of conversational hypnosis found there is an atedote, so to speak. What is required to deprogram a person afflicted by this technique?

    I feel that if such a tape exists, and is in the media’s possession, they owe it to the country to release it.

    BEFORE the election, not after.

  • Ellen D.

    Agreed about API. As a screenwriter, I found the transcript has very strange stilted language and terminology for someone like Michelle Obama, a native born American, to use. The “voice” in the writing sounds like someone from another country.

  • oowawa

    Thanks corn-on-the-cob for this very illuminating post. The Precious may do pretty well in the “gritty concrete of Newark,” but I kinda doubt the “red hills of Georgia” will be very kind to him. I love the line “There will be a debt to pay.” I wonder where O plans on getting the cash to pay that debt to the black community? Actually, this was a rhetorical question–I don’t wonder: he plans on getting the cash from Joe the Plumber.

    Thanks for voting for McCain. I did too. Even though the Oborg are reverently celebrating an early Obamamas, it’s a bit premature. We haven’t lost yet.

  • Liz B

    who cares?

    who are you…Obama? Michelle? Bill Ayers?

    facts are these, if there is a tape like that there are people who will care. There are people who will feelo betrayed, and there may even be Black people who will see that HE is the racist, and not want to be a part of that. Can you not attribute that Black’s can have the capacity to distance themselves from racism? I can. But, in order for them to do that, they would have to see EVIDENCE that they need to.

  • Indy

    I read a few months ago (but I’m unsure of the veracity of the source) that the person that has “the tape” did not want to release it until the last minute due to it’s incendiary nature. So, if it is used, it will be within a couple days of 11/4.

    I am confident it exists, because a blog writer (and a dem) that is totally legit did say a republican source confirmed it to him. I can also understand the unwillingness to make it public (unintended consequences).

  • tzada

    John McCain may not own the tape. There may not be a tape, but I suspect that Michelle has made those statements. The fear of there may being a tape is weighing on her. Breaks my heart to think she might be in distress….. ;) snark.

    Did she fly to Hawaii to be with her husband and his grandmother? She didn’t even take the grandkids to visit on their vacation.

    Wonder if someone has purchase a printing machine that was the same as the one used in Hawaii on that date? Finding the ink may be a bitch though.

  • Indy

    Wasn’t it yesterday that the O campaign denied any connection between O and that book of Ayers, including his sparkling comment on it? roflol. Thanks for posting this.

  • Kal

    I agree. Some courts have different rules on this, but the request to delay discovery has not been ruled on yet, and as I understand it, without a specific order extending time to respond to demands to admit, missing the deadline in the rules would trigger the default rules.

    Now, if there is good reason for the delay, many courts will cure it all with discretionary orders, but its not a sure thing, and this sounds like BO might just be hoping to solve this the Chicago way — win the election by hook and by crook, and then dare some arm of government to do something about it.

    Or maybe the real legal strategy is that Nancy P will rush some curative legislation through, you know, deeming anyone who believed in good faith before reaching the age of majority that they were born in the US to be a natural born citizen, or some such nonsense.

  • Thinker

    Interesting how this became a referendum on Ann.

    - I think it’s because she comes across as smug and abrasive.

    When she disagrees with other posters, she talks about “tin foil hats”, calls us “nuts”,etc.

    We have to deal with that from bots, and now it’s coming from a person who is supposed to be on our side?

    It’s annoying!!!!

    She can express herself, she can disagree with us without calling us names.

    I will ignore her from now on.

  • ford

    Larry Johnson thank you. I accept you update and think that your observations are very accurate.

    I think BO’s trip to Hawaii is most definitely related to the Martin case…it just makes the most sense.

    I am still in a freak out about what Biden said on Sunday. I printed it off the computer and read it to my family and have reviewed it several times..

    I have children, I do not want them drafted to be in harms way with Obama and 5 deferments Biden..

    Just say NO.

    I am supporting McCain /Palin.

    If they don’t use everything they can to win this race my own children might pay the price.

    Please everybody help this country.

    I do work for MAC 3 days a week, but had no idea UNTIL Sunday how bad this may be.

  • AnnieO

    I’m one of those that refused to answer, and I figured the same thing.

  • BO is up to Something

    I have a question. The campaign said BO would be back on Saturday to campaign, so does that mean he knows his Grandmother will be healed by his presence, or that he expects that is enough time for her to die and have a funeral just in time for him to get back on the campaign trail??? LMAO!!! Anyone else wondering how he has a time line for his Grandmother’s illness, but SERIOUSLY, when the elders in my family were sick, we waited for days or weeks. Or does he just plan on checking in a hotel, eating some fancy meals per donation money, saying goodbye to Granny, destroying all evidence of anything she owns that would prove he is not a US citizen and then leave to continue his campaign of fraud? Just thinking out loud!! ROFL!!

    If McCain really did intervene and tell them not to use that tape, he is caving to the ugly retro tactics of the Obama campaign: charges of racism and constant whining about “negativity.” He is being too noble. Does he want to win or not. Obama will do anything necessary to win, as we have seen. McCain should let the information out. The American people deserve to know who the potential First Lady really is.

  • Helena

    Because Obama was a Kenyan citizen until he was 21, (look it up, it’s on his web site) did he register at Occidental College and Columbia University as an international student….as a Kenyan or British Subject?

    It would have been his right to do this, as he inherited this citizenship from his father, and it would have been to his advantage because the applicant pool from Kenya would not have had as many people with his elite prep school education.

    It would have been a smart move on his part at the time and there’s nothing inherently wrong with it. The US applicant pool is much more competitive for these elite colleges.

    Has anyone discussed this thoroughly? I know the college records are all locked up…but wouldn’t Americans want to know if he applied to the schools and registered under his foreign citizenship rather than as an American?

    What’s wrong with this, in my view, is his secrecy and covering up his true history. His educated, elite followers would no doubt understand and approve of his applying and registering for college as a Kenyan citizen, while others would wonder why he felt he had to keep it a secret and go to great lengths to cover it up.

    Linda, I’m a New Mexican since 1991 and I disagree completely with your take on what Richardson has done for this state.

    First of all, the Rail Runner–the most beautiful train on the planet IMO–is a commuter train that currently runs between Belen on the south and Bernalillo on the north. The Santa Fe connection should be completed in by Christmas, and I can’t wait.

    When it is completed, I’ll be spending a lot of time in Santa Fe (I live in Burque). I have friends there, and also need to do some research for a book I’m writing.

    In any case, the Rail Runner is already very, very successful, to the point where they’ve had to add extra cars and extra runs, and the Santa Fe connection will probably double that. There are a LOT of people who live in Santa Fe but work in Burque, and vice versa. Do you really think they’re gonna keep on driving an hour each way if they can just hop on a train, the way it’s done in other major metropolitan centers in this country?

    Second, Richardson provided the tax incentives necessary to persuade several of the major Hollywood studios to relocate to Albuquerque. Burque is now “Tamalewood” (see the Nov 2008 issue of New Mexico Magazine for details). I don’t know how many millions of dollars and thousands of jobs this has brought to the state, but it’s considerable.

    BTW, the new USA show In Plain Sight–starring Mary McCormack–is set in Albuquerque, and it’s a hoot to watch it and see all the familiar landmarks.

    That said, Judas Richardson has revealed himself to be a total jerk this year and I’ve come to detest him personally, but that doesn’t take away from the good things he’s done for us–in utter and complete contrast, I might add, to Gary Johnson’s eight interminable years as gov. What exactly did that doofus ever do for New Mexico?

I said” YOU KNOW THAT LAST THING I WANT TO HEAR WHEN I AM TRYING TO DO MY GROCERIES IS WHAT THAT HALF-BREED WHITE SOCIALIST IS GOING TO DO FOR OUR COUNTRY. WHY DON’T YOU ALL DO SOMETHING LIKE “WORK” FOR THIS STORE INSTEAD OF FUMING OVER THIS BI-SEXUAL RACIST.” There was a hush, and one of the cashier rung me up very quietly. I am sure they said alot after I left, but, I made a point. But, as I said, I have an advantage.

    I found this in a search about MO….This is what they want our kids to DO….

    ….UCSC offers a full range of volunteer, work/study, part- and full-time employment and internship programs for any student who wants to be involved in the community service arena. UCSC’s goal is to create hands-on learning experiences that will help students become effective community leaders. One such experience is Summer Links, an internship program for undergraduate and graduate students committed to public service, community building and social change.

    Summer Links is a paid summer internship created and facilitated by UCSC. Michelle Obama, UCSC Director, modeled the program after Public Allies, a 10-month, full-time, paid internship that students can undertake after graduation. Summer Links is a distilled 10 weeks of intensive community service, comprised of hands-on work experience and complemented by weekly half-day training sessions, including panel discussions.

    After an intensive week of orientation, including educational sessions such as “The People We Serve Race, Gender, Class and Client Sensitivity” and “Asset-based Community Development,” students begin work at their respective sites…..

    While I believe there is a whitey tape – the Obots were just to eager to correct what was being said, I don’t think releasing it would change one vote. What would change is an indictment from Fitzgerald – and that’s what I would love to see. Doubt it will happen in time,- but Obama needs to be completely and utterly outed for the Chicago Crook Liar he is. A Fitzgerald indictment would let EVERYONE know, especially his rat bastard friends, don’t screw with America, in a way some whitey tape just won’t do. Fine, no tape, we move on. No big deal at all.

    Here is another tidbit..

    Dwight Hopkins, Professor of Theology in the Divinity School, commented on the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. (A.M.,’75, History of Religions), alumnus and pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street, in a Sunday, Jan. 21 Chicago Tribune article. Wright, who has been pastor since 1972, is preparing to retire and allow another pastor to step into the role. “The black church is probably the only space in America where black men can have unquestioned authority. It’s hard to give that up for a lot of black male pastors,” said Hopkins, noting Wright’s willingness to do so shows an uncommon humility that sets him apart from others.

    Black theology of liberation: Hopkins educates church leaders, expands scope of scholarship
    By Arthur Fournier
    News Office

    For Dwight Hopkins[dwight hopkins], a scholar of black theology of liberation, teaching a group of students at Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago’s far South Side is an opportunity to exercise his belief that the discipline is uniquely obligated to engage a public that reaches beyond the academy.

    “My area of scholarship, black theology of liberation, is most alive as a form of questioning posed to those who practice in the tradition today,” explained Hopkins, Associate Professor in the Divinity School.

    “It’s meant to get people to reflect on whether or not they’re being faithful to the objectives of the tradition with which they’re engaged. That’s the role of theology; it’s an accountability discipline.”

    To illustrate the personal connections he sees his Trinity students drawing from their coursework, Hopkins related a story about one woman, who recently came to class and announced that the experience of reading his most recent book had encouraged her to act out in ways that might get her fired from her job. “She said, ‘I’ve started to speak up now. I have my human dignity at stake here––this is a faith issue,’” he recounted.

    “As an academic, my response was to reach out and try to help her process this sense of revelation that she’s going through. I certainly don’t want anyone to lose their job because they’ve read one of my books,” he continued. “It’s not exactly the kind of response I would have expected it to generate, but personally and intellectually, it’s an intensely powerful experience to see one of your students recognize their own role in the story. It’s very humbling for me.”

    The book that elicited the woman’s reaction was Introducing Black Theology of Liberation (Orbis Books, 1999), one of three new titles on the subject of black theology that Hopkins, the author, editor or co-editor of 10 books, has published this past fall. In 1998, his publisher asked him to write the book as an introduction to the study of black theology––a subject Hopkins believes comprises the only authentic theological movement in the United States to have its origins outside the academy.

    Black theology identifies the struggle for liberation of poor and oppressed peoples as the core of the black religious experience in America. If the students in Hopkins’ class react with strong emotions, he said it is because the material he teaches directly addresses the experience of their everyday lives and their collective history as a religious community.

    His diverse interests have led Hopkins to take up issues that reach beyond the black experience in this country to include accounts of black theological movements taking root in Latin America, Cuba and South Africa.

    The University of Cape Town, South Africa, recently awarded him his second Ph.D. for a dissertation thesis that forms the basis of another book he published last fall, Down, Up and Over: Slave Religion and Black Theology (Fortress Press, 1999).

    “Down, Up and Over looks at the slavery period as the source of contemporary black traditions. It forms the first part of a series I’ve been mapping out that will examine various aspects of black religion,” said Hopkins.

    “That’s my larger thingælooking to see what kinds of meanings we can discern, if you will, from the African-American religious experience.”

    Although he believes black theology is the contemporary articulation of practices that have percolated through the African-American religious experience since the slavery era, he points out that the first fully mature salvos of the movement can be traced to civil rights-era writings by James Cone. In 1966, a group of ministers from black churches published a full-page ad in The New York Times, calling for a theological interpretation of black power.

    Cone’s first book, Black Theology and Black Power, published in 1969, is widely considered to be the movement’s signal text. “As a product of the African-American struggle, Cone’s book gave liberation theology to the world,” Hopkins argued. “Liberation theology is not just ‘black;’ it’s also part of the larger American tradition.”

    In 1998, Hopkins mounted a conference at the University to re-examine the ideas Cone had articulated nearly three decades earlier. The meeting resulted in a collection of essays titled Black Faith and Public Talk: Critical Essays on James H. Cone’s Black Theology & Black Power, which Hopkins edited. The collection was published during the fall of 1999.

    At that same time, the Center for African Biblical Studies at Trinity United Church of Christ, which has been teaching black theology at the church since 1972, invited Hopkins to teach a class on the subject. Hopkins said he was prepared to design a course based on weekly group discussions, but instead, to his surprise, his Trinity students insisted he treat them as he treats his University students. “Now they have a syllabus with requirements, texts and weekly readings. We’re right about at the sixth week of our quarter. Based on what they’ve demonstrated, I’ve found that I can expect a high level of commitment from my students there.”

    The Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., a Divinity School alumnus (A.M., ’75) and senior pastor at Trinity, said it is only natural that Hopkins, an academic and a member of the church, should be teaching a course at Trinity. He sees the scholar’s work on black religion as an important bridge for the next generation of theologians. “His work covers what has transpired over the past 30 years in the area of black theology. The developments he covers are a ‘must’ for Generation X-ers.”

    In addition to providing a service for the community of believers to which he belongs, the course provides Hopkins with the perfect complement to his Divinity School research and teaching, which focus on such subjects as historical, cultural, political, economic and interpretive approaches to the study of black religion in the United States and abroad. “As you might be able to imagine, I get a qualitatively different reaction in my classes at the Divinity School, which is equally important to me. Otherwise, I’d be working as a minister, not as a scholar,” he explained. “But at Trinity, where people take it all in as a part of their daily lives, the depth and the texture of the discourse is just so rich.”

    Clark Gilpin, Dean and Professor of the History of Christianity in the Divinity School, said that––particularly when considered within the context of the larger field of contemporary theology––black theology in general, and Hopkins’ work in particular, provide useful tools for scholars to account critically for their own social and historical frames of reference. “Hopkins has not only creatively reflected on the shaping influences of black theology but added to them an important international dimension through his work with the black theologians of South Africa,” he said.

    Beautiful quote of John Adams.
    The wisdom of the founders shines through this Obama demagoguery. Thanks Beverly!

  • http://clogsville.wordpress.com/ NetherLands

    I concur.
    Ever since last year polls suggested that only McCain could win from a Democratic nominee, as ‘W’ has basically scrapped the Republican ‘brand’. He has to tread on thin ice, on the one hand not losing the Republican base for ‘RINO-ism’ (which is one big reason for the Palin pick), on the other hand not losing independents/moderate Democrats. One big reason for his party-wide appeal is that he is known as a man of integrity (that investigator on the Keating 5 even said he’s one of the few), and yes, that’s also a big reason why even in ‘old’ Europe quite a few people and media-outlets are rooting for McCain (which of course means flying figs for the elections but still).

    Also, BO is the Teflon-man; the ‘whitey-tape’ wouldn’t change Obots’s opinion but, like you said, only be ‘deflected’ as a ‘McNasty’ attack on poow wee Michelle (who I 100% believe to have used the term, her thesis, her Jackson-association, and choice of ‘church’ just yell it) .

    It’s a lousy situation, but to end at a high note: the ‘lynching’ of Joe the Plumber has damaged BO quite a lot, and we’ll see a lot more Joe’s.

  • Hope is the last to die

    If the whitey tape exists and it’s McCain who stands in the way of releasing it.. well, then he deserves to lose. The McCain campaign are doing some really boneheaded decisions right now. Attacking Obama with Ayers and socialism? Please, Obama supporters love those things, it’s change after all.

  • tzada

    I voted for Obama in the Florida primary. My road to disillusionment started with Michelles bitter remarks. It opened my eyes and believe you me I was shocked and hurt. Barack the racist stole my vote. I never dreamed he was racist, in fact I thought America had stepped beyond that.

    I am a moderate and have never voted party, but country first, always. So don’t tell me that finding out the the lady in waiting makes those kind of statements will turn me towards her and Barack? Strange way of looking at things. But you have succeeded into turning the discussion to being all about you.

    Well I am all about America. McCain/Palin

  • AnnieO

    Yes. Even without signs and bumper stickers, Obots still find a way to confront/attack people. I had an encounter at a restaurant where a woman sitting alone tried to engage me in conversation about the election. I tried to keep the talk to a minimum since I was having dinner with my family, but she persisted. I did not say much beyond that I’m a McCain/Palin supporter, so she turned to my son and said, “Your mother is voting like she’s in high school, like this is a popularity contest.” Then she said to him, “Your mother needs to come to terms with her racism.”

  • socalannie

    The bottom line is: if there was a video tape of Cindy McCain, sitting in on a panel that included prominent racists, and Cindy was spouting racist jargon & using racist epithets, the Obama “race card central” campaign would have it splashed all over the media in a heartbeat & it would be on the news 24/7, and everyone would be talking about it.

    The double standard that applies to the Obama campaign is disgusting.

  • NoTrollZone

    If there is a whitey tape it needs to be released.
    If McCain doesn’t want to do it… fine… someone else needs to do it. I am sick of people protecting the Obama’s from their own slime. If Michelle made the remarks purported to be on this tape, then she needs to deal with it in front of the American people who she said the comments about.

    There is no excuse to fail to expose this crazy, batshit woman, Michelle Obama.

  • Donato

    I’m sorry but if the whitey tape is real then it should be used. Not because anyone would be shocked, but because Obama denied its existence, and he said that Michelle would ever say such horrible things. He and she would be exposed as liars. I don’t know why McCain would not want to use it if it’s indeed real … it’s totally fair game because they denied it exists.

  • Hope Floats! Flush Twice!

    I think the goal has been to keep Obama just below 50 throughout the whole election. The internal polling likely has them tied or McCain slightly ahead. It is encouraging that Palin has been in CO and NM while McCain will be in PA. I think McCain is holding a royal flush, and it’s not the tape. He will win.

    I am a fan of this site but I really have to question what friends of LJ reportedly said, “My Republican friend tells me that the McCain campaign intervened and requested the tape not be used.” It is my belief the tape did not exist BUT perhaps someone who attended the event heard what was reported. Just an idea. Why wouldn’t the McCain Camp want the tape to be released? Don’t make sense to me. As for API difficult for me to believe that Mrs. Obama contacted them. As for Berg I agree the BIRTH CERTIFICATE PROBLEM will not and SHOULD not go away.

    I did some checking and found that this poll is a University poll that got 2004 correct within 1/2 percentage point. Here is an article that they wrote about their poll

    Battleground Hits a Bull’s Eye

    The George Washington University Battleground Poll, a highly regarded bi-partisan survey, was the most accurate presidential tracking poll in the nation; a near perfect match to the final popular vote as reported by the Associated Press. The GW-Battleground Poll was the most accurate for the third time in four presidential elections.

    “The election is remarkable in that a number of pundit’s predictions were realized, particularly the importance of battleground states such as Ohio and Florida,” Christopher Arterton, dean of GW’s Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM) and liaison for the GW-Battleground 2004 Poll said. “The GW-Battleground Poll applied the science of polling and coupled it with the dynamic of bipartisanship to accurately predict this election outcome. The University looks forward to continuing sponsorship of this nationally recognized survey.”

    The University sponsors the GW-Battleground Poll, which is conducted by top polling firms Lake Snell Perry and Associates and The Tarrance Group and guided by Arterton and GSPM. The poll surveyed registered likely voters nationwide and yielded a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.

    I think FRCP 26(E) is why barky has to disclose the information, even tho he has a motion before the court to dismiss and protect. And basically, this kind of information is something every American has to produce for lots of reasons, so it is unreasonable to think that Barky doesn’t have access to this info:

    (E) Basis for Initial Disclosure; Unacceptable Excuses. A party must make its initial disclosures based on the information then reasonably available to it. A party is not excused from making its disclosures because it has not fully investigated the case or because it challenges the sufficiency of another party’s disclosures or because another party has not made its disclosures.

    there already is a resolution in the Senate which tries to do the same thing. It was put forth by Leahy, McCatskill, and Obama. It tries to create a blanket exception for naturalized citizens. The resolution was done regarding McCain (but was unnecessary actually), and Obama tried to have language strictly about McCain eliminated. Note the bolded parts below:

    Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a ‘‘natural born Citizen’’ of the United States;

    Whereas the term ‘‘natural born Citizen’’, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;

    Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to American citizens serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s President;

    Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the ‘‘natural born Citizen’’ clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term ‘‘natural born Citizen’’;

    Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;

    Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and

    Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a ‘‘natural born Citizen’’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.

I too doubted the tape until I read what he had to say about it and after hearing who he heard about it from, there’s a reason we aren’t seeing it. Alot of this stuff has apparently been gathered up for destruction and/or paid off to keep their mouths shut.

  • Khan Krum

    Deciding what to do with the Whitey Tape (if it exists) is a trial to see what kind of president McCain would be. A direct analogy could be made to how he would react to a deadly blow to the US (e.g., a nuclear attack). If he uses the Whitey Tape, it suggests that he would preemptively strike to prevent such an assault. If he doesn’t use it, then maybe he finds it morally superior on some kind of level to accept defeat before annihilating an enemy.

    I’ll say one thing. If the Whitey Tape exists and he doesnt’ use it, and Obama wins the presidency, then many, many Americans will never forgive him.

    The 527 groups are supposed to be totally independent from the campaigns, and they can lose their ability to operate if they are found to be accepting orders or directions from the campaign. Their very legal structural basis provides plausible deniability to McCain, and he should not be telling them what they should do or should not do. In any event, he can cite the legal requirement that he has nothing to do with their actions, and he can even denounce their ads if he sees an advantage to doing so.

    Sorry, Galt, I should have made myself clearer. What I mean is approve its release. I never have thought that he should use in in a campaign ad. It should just appear somewhere, e.g., the Internet, a news station, etc. Like the Rev. Wright tapes. No one ever questioned the provenance of its release. It’s got to get out there. Senator Government has said on more than one occasion that she would be a top advisor. Think of the implications of having a top advisor that has such radical racist views (if the tape actually exists).

    There ya go. Same shit, different election.

  • Dr. Kate

    Thanks for the update Larry. Learned a lot also from the comments, including the trolls and trolls in disguise. My view:

    (1) Whitey tape. Truthfully I hoped it was true, becaues no one would want a hateful first lady who would embarass us. We have all the evidence and as long as she is kept out of sight, no one will know until it is too late. The Obama campaign confirmed its existence by its ‘preemptive response’. That said, I think it is irresponsible not to show it, “gentlemans rules”, “clean campaign”, or no. Therefore democratic and republican sources, and private sources who have this tape and have seen it do a disservice to the American people by not at least talking about it or raising a question. I do not beleive Seymor Hersch would hold this for political reasons (ie being a democrat)–he has more integrity. On this issue, all parties who have the tape and know about it are irresponsible and not helpful to Americans making an informed choice.

    (2) The API story. IMHO, it is a fake and possibly a plant by the Obama campaign to distract from the real issues of ayers, acorn, socialism, hidden agendas, and his birth certificate & citizenship. Obama has already admitted he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro, so no news there. I think having the ‘whitey tape’ rumor out there made people vulnerable to the API story, wasting valuable time writing and talking about it.
    (3) Berg, Citizenship. Sorry to say this, but all blogs in my view that have not at least covered this story–not necessarily the case–and the continuing questions that exist about Obama’s citizenship and basic aspects of his life, are not being responsible to the American public. I can understand if the merits of Bergs case were incorrect why it is not being reported by all, but the merits are solid–because the basic question is solid: where are your identifying documents?. And I can understand that this blog and others may have disagreements or problems with the underlying birth certificate analysis, or perhaps dislike of Phil Berg, and therefore not want to cover the story. That said, to summarily dismiss it misses an opportunity to discuss Article II of the constitution, whether it has anything to do with the 14th amendment–which has been on OBama’s website forever “I am a citizen pursuant to the 14th amendment”. But article II does not say that naturalized or dual citizens are eligible to hold the office of president of the US. Therefore, Obama is planning on taking this to the US supreme court if he wins and is challenged. You are right, these charges are not going away, but what is missed is this IS a constitutional crisis in the making.

    My final point is that all of these issues are designed to produce chaos–the classic Alinsky method and just what revolutionaries like Bill Ayers would promote. OBama’s advise to Odinga is the same way he is operating his campaign here: inflate the poll numbers, cry voter fraud if you lose, and demonstrate (well Odinga killed) until some position of power is handed to you. Make NO mistake about this: Obama’s intentions are to bring this country down–to “apologize” for who we are.

    So, with the exception of the API story, I feel all of these issues shuld have been covered here. The whitey tape could have evolved into other ways to help get the word out about Michelle’s racism and hatred, and to point out that she is purposely being kept out of site. Videos of her scowling along with Obama might give people a picture of these two together. The Berg/Citizenship/BC issue could have been discussed regarding the fundamental issues raised.

    In the total scope of things, I cite NQ as the best blog I know of for the quality of both stories and comments/commentors. As I have turned off the TV and radio–even NPR–this season, this has been a refuge.

    Thanks again for the update, and keep up the good work.

Our natonal security, direction of the Court, unchecked Democratic control of congress? No Republican would sacrafice these things out of loyalty to the wishes of one man. Your earlier back tracking suggesting that the tapes would not be released as the McCain camp believed they had a 100 electoral lead seemed fishy. Now that it is clear we have no such lead, a further excuse was needed and added.

  • LJM

    I have it on good authority that the tape is in the hands of a sasquatch, which is presently in a freezer at the home of the grand-nephew of one of the “grassy-knoll” shooters, who was also the demolitions expert who, at Obama’s behest, designed the charges that brought down tower number two on 9/11.

    Because, you know, the Obama’s hate white folks.

    You guys have fun, now.

  • Andrew

    It’s always the left wing that wants to curtail free expression. I say this as a lifetime Democrat. One example is the liberal support for “hate speech” laws. Another is the hardline feminist position on pornography, that it degrades women and therefore should be banned. (There may be constitutional rationales for limiting porn, but this isn’t one of them.) Republicans have always opposed these measures, and for the right reasons. That’s what “strict construction” of the Constitution requires. When it says that “Congress shall make no laws” restricting free speech, that’s exactly what it means. No laws. Period. But if we end up with The Messiah in the White House, Nancy Pelosi in the Speaker’s chair, and a 60-plus majority of Obamacrats in the Senate, you can bet we’ll see plenty of laws requiring our forced enlightenment.

    You are kidding right? Obama has played the race card ad nauseum since the beginning of his campaign and you would call McCain racist if this tape comes out? I knew you vacillated all the time, but now your true colors are out there. Go ahead and vote for Obama if you want. Your reasoning on the tape thing is beyond ludicrous. You messed up and spilled the beans that you are a bona fide OBOT. We know the zombie obots are voting for Obama so it’s ok. Don’t you feel better that you finally admitted the truth? Too funny.

  • dpvegas

    Since there was no need for this, I am certain it was done on Barky’s behalf. There’s already an Amendment which covers McCain quite adequately.

    I’d be willing to bet that Barky’s ineligible and is trying hard to supress that until after the election. However, he cannot override our Constitution, and neither can any Act of Congress. His actions are so telling, and so disrespectful of our nation of laws.

    Any whoo, my husband used some of this, as well as other, information to persuade a retired AA military NCO at his job to vote for McCain. This man was SO MAD when he heard that someone tried to make an issue of McCain’s birth. We military are more than Patriotic–duh.

  • Patience

    I have to admit I’m not terribly persuaded by the birth certificate issue. If it turns out to be true, great. But I’m not putting a lot of stock in the theory, and the video of Berg I saw recently didn’t do much to convince me.

    Sorry, but that’s how I feel.

    Now, the whitey tape’s a different matter. I have a strong suspicion it’s for real. The heightened rate of racism charges by the Obama campaign, while they could of course represent a broad brush strategy, makes me think there’s indeed some injurious evidence of a racial nature they’re aware of and rightly fear. They’ll try to blame the messenger — just like they’ve done with Joe the Plumber. But if the tape’s what it’s purported to be it will speak for itself and will be impossible to refute successfully.

  • Rob G in Chicago

    Then read other GOOGLE posts on Andy Martin, known better in the Illinois judicial system as Anthony Martin Trigona. At first, his lawsuits looked credible, but then they started flying so fast, and he kept suing the federal judges who would toss his suits. I’m just saying that he may be a tad “out there”, and some caution should be used.

    While I appreciate Sen. McCain’s ethical approach, what’s making me mad is that the 527′s are not putting this stuff out.

    The Swift Boat Liar’s didn’t listen to McCain in ’04, so why start now?

  • Sassy

    An honorable person might be squeamish about using the tape, if it exists.
    I have wanted to see it released, not for the words, but to solidify this couple’s link to Farrakhan!
    Admittedly, I would feel for the two children involved.
    However, after their exposure to Wright, they are probably well on their way to following in their parents footsteps!
    As I have said before, McCain and Palin are going to have to go it alone…and with our country in this hellacious mess!

    It’s very telling nowadays that if you present evidence of a black person saying racist hateful things about white people you are considered a racist for doing so. I don’t think the pendulum can swing any further in the same direction.

    I can’t get over thinking that these new tapes are one and the same older tape that’s been discussed and someone is going through some twilight zone contorted process to get them out while leaving the RNC cleared of doing so.

    I think you better look into that Film business a little closer, you are probably paying lots of Money for those jobs. I live in Michiganistan and we are starting to get Films being made here, the State gives a 40% TAX CREDIT for the Money they spend in the State on Production. That means if they spend $1000 the State will send them a check for $400, what a deal, some chumps (the Taxpayers) are paying almost half the cost. If I was making a Film I’d come here too.

    There is no Whitey tape………..

  • Bitter Knitter

    Long time readers of this blog and similar sites have long been aware of this “curious” legislation, and to me, this is the most damning of all circumstancial evidence pointing to Barry’s natural born citizen status. What I fear is that BHO’s zombie followers won’t even care that he isn’t a natural born citizen. Another graphic reminder that the press is dead. They should have been pounding that fishwife McCaskill until she gave out and admitted that she is part of Barry’s conspiracy to fleece the American people. The question is why. This has to be about more than the egotistical desires of Obama….there has to be more to it and it is terrifying.

  • sayitisntso

    mel, I always like your comments and you are right, again.

    It was proven decades ago that ANY discussion of race CAUSES more racism. It’s a dead end and why the BHusseinO campaign wants you all wasting your time on it.

  • Mollye

    I truly don’t know what purpose you are serving with your comments today. The people who are commenting and expressing their opinion have no control over 527′s or John McCain’s own campaign decision. It really does not matter whether you vote for McCain or not…because your state will go to Obama. John McCain has never made race a factor in this campaign…but Obama & Co. certainly have. Who are all of these people you are speaking for and in which states do they reside? They have obviously not been exposed to the onslaught of misleading negative ads from the Obama camp, as well as the race-baiting every time someone criticizes their candidate.

    Look as much as I would love a huge bomb to fall on the MSM and their savior, these story’s are going no where. We already have two huge October surprises, the first is the redistribution of wealth and the second is the new Aryes audio being aired on Fox now.

  • bemused

    You have to make them start reflecting critically on the speech they are hearing, phrase by phrase, and objectify the meaning (that is the aim of persuasion, to convince by delivering a feeling of personal connection) so that the discourse can be exposed as illogical or trivial.

    For instance, when a speaker wants to be convincing (and let’s face it, they all do this), they have to establish their authority so people will believe them. This is called pacing. Speaker says obviously true things, like “Here we are today.” This lulls the listener: yeah, yeah, here we are, true enough.

    After the listener gets comfortable with the speaker and starts accepting them as worth listening to, the speaker tells them what he wants them to believe: “I will be the next President.” (inevitability is suggested to you) Or other things: “On election day, vote for me.”

    If you can break into this smooth presentation like the hecklers in Florida or Joe the Plumber, it breaks the spell. This is an extra good moment to introduce critical thinking. Otherwise it’s a slog, but if he can hypnotize this way, others can use the same technique too.

  • OrphanRescuingFiremanHeroGuy

    I mean, how freakin’ comically self-ignorant is this:

    “I am a Show Me state boy. I am not writing anymore on this matter until an audiotape appears.”

    OMG. Really? I don’t think I’ve ever read a more comic line.

  • Jason

    Just got home, no time to read all 564 comments posted so far. But from skimming a few, I have this to say.

    1) There is no Whitey tape. This much is obvious to anyone with a brain. The idea that it’s not being released “because McCain objects” is just pure baloney. As if a couple of anti-Obama Democrat journalists would give a crap about a request from McCain to keep it under wraps. They could just post the damn thing on YouTube and have done with it. Ditto the Republican. McCain wouldn’t have to have anything to do with it, just like he doesn’t have anything to do with the million and one other anti-Obama videos out there. The whole thing is a lie. Either Larry is in on that lie, or he’s as gullible anyone else who believes this crap. If there was a tape we would have seen it by now….end of story.

    2) Let’s pretend the tape does exist for a minute. To those who have commented that they “will change their vote to Obama if anyone plays the race card” – are you stupid? How would airing a tape which exposes the wife of Obama as a hateful racist be “playing the race card?” You people don’t even know what a race card is. Exposing the truth about someone’s racism with an irrefutable video is not playing the race card. It’s simply exposing the racial hatred of someone. You know damn well that if there were a tape of McCain saying the n-word and it was aired, you would never in a million years claim that it was “playing the race card” and change your vote in protest. Let’s just come back down to earth for a minute. How come you think the Obamas have a free pass to be racist? Explain please.

    But all of this is moot because there is no tape and I think Larry knows that as much as anyone.

  • Mydress

    I was raised in former USSR and emigrated in
    USA because I wanted live in freedom. Socialism is a prison. Obama’s “change” speech – nothing new(BS). You can find many of them in Soviet school textbook for 5-grades.
    About racism – I was so surpised to find real racism – black. I don’t have “white guilt” and don’t care if somebody will call me racist I’ll not vote for empty suit.

    People, there is no “whitey” tape! Notice how not one of Larry’s conveniently anonymous sources has actually SEEN it? And how all the info about it has been completely contradictory?

    And Andy Martin is a certified loon and a wild anti-semite. There is info about his antics all over the internet. For one, this recent NYTimes article: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/13/us/politics/13martin.html?_r=1&bl&oref=slogin

  • Patience

    First of all, it may be too soon for the whitey tape, if it exists. When I mentioned the possibility of this tape to my husband (who’s voting for Obama) a few months ago, I could tell by his reaction that it would have an effect on his vote. But he would have to see it with his OWN EYES.

    Those of us who’ve been falsely accused of racism deserve to be exonerated of the charge and the true racists deserve to be exposed. The wholesale use of racism to dismiss legitimate opposition in this campaign has set back race relations in this country DECADES. It’s absolutely CRIMINAL. If the tape exists, McCaim will take heat from the media no matter who really released it. If it’s what it’s supposed to be, hearing a racist epithet hurled repeatedly at Bill Clinton will be shocking not just because of the use of the word, but also because it will betray the racist gameplan this campaign has employed all along. In spite of what happened during the primaries, anyone playing with a full deck knows Bill Clinton isn’t racist. It’s laughable.

    Another reason I believe the tape exists is because I’ve read about Black Liberation Theology which is undoubtedly and undeniably racist. No question. My husband WON’T bother reading about it, but if he saw the whitey tape it would open his eyes. Just like with Joe the Plumber, some people have to have a story personalized in order to really understand it.

  • Jason

    I agree with almost everything you said – I believe 100% that Michelle Obama is a racist, and I fully believe that Obama is too. I just don’t believe there is a tape.

    It’s not that I don’t believe that Michelle has ever said things like that – in fact I would be very surprised if she hadn’t. And judging by statements Obama has made about whites in the past, both in his book and about his grandmother being a “typical white,” it’s clear that he’s supported that whole anti-white ideology too. Just look at his friendship with Pastor Wright and his 20 year attendance of his church. I still can’t believe that the media gave him the benefit of the doubt and a free pass after all of his lies about what he has and hasn’t heard at Wright’s sermons.

    But it’s hard to believe that if such a tape existed that it wouldn’t have been released. How could it be “too soon”? The election is 2 weeks away. Many people have voted already.

    If someone has a copy of the tape then there would be many other copies too. Wasn’t it supposed to have come from the church’s website? If so, I find it hard to believe that it hasn’t by now found its way into the hands of someone who would be prepared to upload it to YouTube.

  • Lindsy

    Where are all the 527 ads and RNC ads? Last year they were everywhere and this year I haven’t seen a single one. It’s almost like the Republicans WANT to lose this thing!

  • Ai1een

    I don’t understand it at all; not one bit.

    Barack Obama and his cronies are the biggest threat to the welfare of our soverign nation and McCain (perhaps) put the nix on the tape(if it does exist)? Why?

    I could understand NOT wanting to use it if it was a tape that was demeaning to African Americans or Barack Obama’s heritage, but such a tape (if it existed) would be the OPPOSITE of that – it would show the true RACISM of Michelle Obama.

    Why would McCain tell the 527′s to NIX that especially considering that he could very well LOSE this election and most are thinking he will.

  • Ai1een

    Dr. Kate –
    Yes – I was born in France to parents in the USAF and I’ve always carried citizenship here – I never had to go thru any procedural red tape to get someone to say I was a legit U.S. Citizen. That entire action is DEFINITELY suspect – but we’re all supposed to be loony tunes to be suspicious.

    As I’ve posted here recently, I (and others) have been suspicious of how BO’s grandmother has been kept under lock and key and not out of eyesight of BO’s half sister since his run for the Presidency began. This grandmother has been completely sequestered from ALL press and media questions – half sister ALWAYS being her police.

    McCain doesn’t have someone hoving over his mother – she is definitely a firecracker and, like many elderly, not always politically correct – but, nevertheless, McCain hasn’t kept her under lock and key and sequestered from the press.

    THIS GRANDMOTHER KNOWS THE TRUTH ABOUT BO’s BIRTH – AND HE DOESN’T WANT HER OPENING UP TO THE MEDIA ABOUT IT – PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

    Now Andy Martin is in Hawaii and all of a sudden BO is rushing to Hawaii… even if his Grandmother does have a broken hip or is ill – I have suspicions about all of it.

  • Ai1een

    AnninCA –
    You don’t think she’s the same person today? LOL! You obviously were NOT paying attention to her behavior in SC during the primaries and must not be informed as to the racist hate white America campaign BO ran here thru the AA churches.

    You might want to do some research and read some things that AA women who supported Hillary have said about what BO’s campaign was saying about the Clintons and white America. Also – some of Michelle Obama’s most controversial statements was made at the Univ. of SC.

  • Ai1een

    Patience – Very good points – especially, as you said, that she is his closest advisor, 20 years in a racist hate baiting church, cronies all around him have also expressed hatred toward caucasians – Farrakhan, Moses, Wright, Pfleger, etc.

  • Ai1een

    Hey Fred –

    If the tape doesn’t exist, why did so many in BO’s campaign rush around like crazy people to every media outlet pushing that Michelle was saying , “why’d he”?

    It’s not a “choo-choo to nowhere.” It’s a commuter train serving the Middle Rio Grande Valley–the Albuquerque/Santa Fe metropolitan area–which contains half the state’s c. 2,000,000 population. 35,000 of those people travel just between Burque and Santa Fe every day. That’s an hour each way on the interstate. Ever tried getting up (or down) La Bajada Hill on an icy winter day?

    And the 1/8 cent sales tax for the Rail Runner applies only to the four counties it serves: Santa Fe, Sandoval, Bernalillo and Valencia.

    It has been noted that Barock Obama blinks twice as much as other citizens. This is because it has been alledged that Cindy McCain may have spiked his punch at a ho-down in Ft. Worth in 2005. I need more info. on this.

  • MochaLatteBreve

    Bottom line if the purported “whitey” tape exists it should be released. American citizens have a right to know if one of the candidates or their wives hold the type of viewpoint that would cause this kind of racist outburst. We have a right to know!! And John McCain should not interfere with our right to know!!!!!!!

    Shame he doesn’t actually DO SO and put this all to rest.
    When poeple say they have something but never actually show it to you its called bluffing.
    While I would love to see a whitey tape and I believe the incident that the alledged tape covers did occcur I am pretty sure they did not actually catch it on tape. If they did someone would have leaked it by now
    Just like if they really had Obama’s birth certificate–if it existed we would have it by now.

    Early votes in the majority of states are held over until after election day and only if they are equal to or greater than the seperation between the total votes for the candidates are they actually counted.
    That means there is a good chance the majority of the early votes will not be counted.
    Same goes for absentee–they are set aside and only if they equal the seperation or greater are they counted. In most elections these votes re never tallied because they will not impact the results. Which is a great offense to me since the majority of your absentee votes are from soldiers sereving overseas to protect our right to vote…their’s don’t usually get counted.

    and in no way have 1/2 the votes been cast, not even close; the vast majority of the population does not qualify for early voting. Stop pandering to the Obama propaganda and cast your vote to support freedom and democracy in America–vote McCain-Palin. We can and WILL win this election, in spite of the party, in spite of the media, and in spite of all of Obama’s wasted advertizing money.

    agreed.
    He did not seem interested in visiting her when she was in the hospital or bringing the grandchildren to see her, just in case thi is their last opportunity. Interesting that he heads out there just in time for a court case to be filed against his citizenship there…

    Read it. It’s good stuff. Maybe you should read it. Maybe you should go to college.

    That was, you know, one blogger. On the DailyKos. Who was told to shut up because he didn’t know what the hell he was talking about.

    Revising history is awesome. Let me try.

    The reason Hillary lost was not because, like John McCain she ran an inept campaign that showed her to lack leadership abilities, but because the Obama forces secretly trained an elite force of dinosaurs to be able to sense and consume Clinton supporters. Why won’t the liberal media talk about the Obama dinosaur story??

    She hasn’t. You people are insane.

    Where is the “whitey” tape? Or was Michelle Malkin right that you just can’t be trusted?
