Barack Obama's biography, as of 2001 - 10/15/08

A copy of Barack Obama's biography as of 2001 is in the extended entry, from Harvard (link). Among other things I didn't know was that he also worked as a community organizer in Harlem after graduating from Columbia in 1983.

Land reform, ACORN-style: squatting campaigns they admitted were illegal - 10/15/08

... considered writing a satire about Barack Obama proposing "land reform", aka "agrarian reform" (see, for instance, this). As it turns out, ACORN - a group with which he's been linked in one form or other for several years - was working on something similar, although they were serious.

Someone named Tracy who runs a show at Blog Talk Radio (blogtalkradio.com) called No Compromise Radio was conducting an interview of Phil Berg two days ago about the Obama/U.S. citizenship issue.

Did Michelle Obama angrily defend Barack in a phone call? - 10/14/08

... denounced their attempts to keep Barack Obama from becoming president: [API] is supposed to support Africans and African-American view... it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband.

Did Barack Obama help Kenya prime minister Raila Odinga raise funds? - 10/14/08

The answer to that is... it could happen. See this. One of the debunkings of that claim that I've seen is that the "fact checkers" [1] couldn't find a $1 million transfer from the Obama campaign to Odinga, and that there's no such thing as the "Friends of Senator B.O." However, the wording at the first link implies that it wasn't a transfer so much as Obama facilitating donations from others...

ACORN Ohio worked *with* Obama campaign on GOTV; ACORN/Project Vote did GOTV in battleground states - 10/13/08

Barack Obama has long-term ties to the far-left group ACORN. And, those ties continued at least as late as February 2008, when ACORN's Ohio branch worked with the Barack Obama campaign on a GOTV effort.

Karen Tumulty misleads for Barack Obama (Jeffrey Frederick) - 10/12/08

... designed explicitly to support Barack Obama. It starts with something that could have been written by the BHO campaign: If John McCain is as serious as he says about running a "respectful" campaign against an opponent he considers "a decent person," word hasn't yet trickled down to his newly opened storefront field office in Gainesville, Virginia. Then, she shows her lack of respect for anything...

Is "Barack Obama" a complete scam? (Philip Berg lawsuit; Indonesia) - 10/11/08

Could "Barack Obama" be a complete fake?

Has Barack Obama admitted that he was an ACORN trainer? - 10/10/08

Kenya admits Jerome Corsi was detained due to his political activities - 10/09/08

... investigation of links between Barack Obama and Kenya Prime Minister Raila Odinga. The original explanation was that his work permit had been lost. Despite the fact that that was such an incredibly obvious sham that most kindergarteners could see through it, almost all Obama supporters who discussed this either bought the Kenyan government's line, or tried to retail it to their readers. Now...

The Cenk Uygur Race Card Play-O-Matic (John McCain, Fannie Mae) - 10/08/08

... "Twist anything an opponent of Barack Obama says in order to play the race card". If BHO wins the presidency, expect them to abide by that rule endlessly. The latest example comes from multiple "liberals" who are trying to racialize John McCain referring to Barack Obama as "that one" at last night's "debate".

Andy McCarthy: "You guys are nuts". Me: "yes, and they refuse to do anything effective" - 10/07/08

At The Corner, Andy McCarthy writes: Memo to McCain Campaign: Someone is either a terrorist sympathizer or he isn't; someone is either disqualified as a terrorist sympathizer or he's qualified for public office. You helped portray Obama as a clealy qualified presidential candidate who would fight terrorists. If that's what the public thinks, good luck trying to win this thing. With due...

Lil' fascists: Barack Obama supporters on Jerome Corsi's detention in Kenya - 10/07/08

... like that are done in support of Barack Obama, their response is a bit different. Here are some instances of those discussing the detention in Kenya of Jerome Corsi, author of the anti-BHO book Obama Nation.

Jerome Corsi detained in Kenya after investigating Barack Obama links to Kenyan president - 10/07/08

... Obama Nation and someone that the Barack Obama campaign subsequently smeared - has been detained in Kenya. The official word is apparently that he hasn't been detained, but Corsi says his passport has been taken. He and his publicist apparently haven't been charged with any crimes, and contrary to other reports he hasn't been deported; he was scheduled to leave the country today. The officials...

CNN does expose on Barack Obama/Bill Ayers? - 10/06/08

According to this, tonight's Anderson Cooper show on CNN included a segment from one of their other reporters that included this: But the relationship between Obama and Ayers went much deeper, ran much longer, and was much more political than Obama said.

Dana Milbank/WaPo's dangerous smear of Sarah Palin, supporters - 10/06/08

Discussing a speech today in Florida ("In Fla., Palin...

Questions for Barack Obama about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - 10/06/08

Please go to a Barack Obama public appearance, ask him one of the following questions (derived from a McCain campaign missive [1]), get his response on videotape, and then upload that to Youtube.

... outfits - pledging allegiance to Barack Obama and describing how he's changed their lives.

Marc Cooper/Huffington Post pretends Obama/Ayers similar to McCain/David Ifshin - 10/05/08

Marc Cooper is an ultra-lightweight Huffington Post "reporter"; I used to leave comments at his site completely eviscerating what little immigration-related argument he could provide. After a while he had a mini-meltdown and stopped being able to present even a slightly cogent argument. He never once was able to respond to any of my points [1]. Now, the "reporter" offers "McCain's Own 60's...

Scott Shane/NYT's pro-BHO spin on Bill Ayers/Barack Obama collaboration - 10/04/08

... everything's fine and dandy, and Barack Obama and 60s radical Bill Ayers are not close. The fact that they aren't close and never were close and nothing funny went on and there's nothing to see here is especially important because Ayers is a former and allegedly unrepentant terrorist who's since been, in Shane's words, "rehabilitated". On the other hand, if you actually want the truth, compare...

Justin Rood/ABC News misleads about Sarah Palin divestment from Sudan - 10/03/08

However, the BHO campaign "forgets" to point out that Palin later supported the bill when it was reintroduced...

Barack Obama: "This is not the ___Larry_Walsh_&_Matt_Ryan___ that I knew" (FBI raid) - 10/02/08

The Obama Bus got all fired up, two soft thuds were heard, and then typing was heard from the campaign's teleprompter office as this was typed in: "This not the Larry Walsh and Matt Ryan that I knew" (link): The FBI on Wednesday raided the county offices of a former Illinois state senator who is a poker-playing buddy of Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Pro-life, pro-Obama: Douglas Kmiec says abortion foes should vote for Barack Obama - 10/02/08

Douglas Kmiec offers a warm welcome to his effort "Pro-life, Pro-Obama": "As Ronald Reagan's legal counsel and as a dean and professor at Catholic University and Notre Dame, I have worked to put the law on the side of life where it belongs.
