The MOST Important Question, for "blackascoal", "desh, darla, Lady Tuna", etc.
There is ONE Question, that is THE MOST Important, this Presidential Election, for ANYONE who LOVES America, for anyone who TRULY loves their country, wants to see it stay safe, and CARES about our children and grandchildren. Does this list, below, show Larry C. Johnson to be an EXPERT in Terrorism, a Man who TRULY LOVES his country of America, and works EVERY DAY to ensure its safety, and the safety of our children, and future generations?
Larry C. Johnson is CEO and co-founder of BERG Associates, LLC, an international business-consulting firm with expertise combating terrorism and investigating money laundering.

ANYONE who is Intellectually HONEST, and does NOT HIDE, behind Race, or IRRELEVANT ATTACKS on other personalities, WILL ADMIT that this man is one of the Foremost Experts on Terrorism, and what he says about coddling or giving Terrorists, either AMERICAN TERRORISTS, or Foreign, the "Freindship" of the President, is FACT.
As Democrats and Independents weigh who they want to run against John McCain in the fall, answer this question. Can you support a candidate who is friends with terrorists? Can you support a candidate who takes money from terrorists? Well, if Obama is your man you have some problems. Today’s Bloomberg News drops this bombshell:
Besides Rezko and Giannoulias, Obama could face questions about his relationship with William Ayers, a former member of the radical group the Weather Underground who is now a professor of education at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Ayers donated $200 in 2001 to Obama’s Illinois state Senate campaign and served with him from 1999 to 2002 on the board of the Woods Fund, an anti-poverty group.
A Series of Bombings
The Weather Underground carried out a series of bombings in the early 1970s — including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon. While Ayers was never prosecuted for those attacks, he told the New York Times in an interview published Sept. 11, 2001, that “I don’t regret setting bombs.”
Bill Burton, Obama’s spokesman, said Ayers “does not have a role on the campaign.” Ayers said he had no comment on his relationship with Obama.
Does not have a role on the campaign? Well thank God for that. Are you kidding me?
Peter Hitchens was the first to hint at this relationship, but Tim Burger nails it. William Ayers is an American terrorist. What else do you call someone who plants bombs at Federal facilities? William Ayers has not been prosecuted for the bombings, but he was directly involved. He admits this. And do not give me the nonsense that he was fighting for a good cause. Martin Luther King’s message of non-violence had no place in the political ideology of Mr. Ayers. And Ayers is unrepentant.
First, Ayers contributed money to Obama.

Second, this is more than a casual acquaintance. Obama and Ayers served together on the board of the Woods Fund. Did Obama and Ayers do more than simply sit side-by-side? Did they steer money to favored groups? Those are questions that journalists not bowing at the feet of the Obama god need to ask.
At a minimun this reminds us that there is a pattern of bad judgment by Obama. He goes in on a land deal with Tony Rezko even though he knows Rezko is a target of a Federal investigation. And his explanation? A mistake in judgment. Now this. Anyone thinking of running for President should know they cannot take money from a terrorist and they cannot serve on a board with a terrorist. Period. But this simple lesson apparently escapes the brilliant constitutional law professor.
This much we do know. Obama does not deny having a relationship with William Ayers. Obama has never repudiated the terrorism of William Ayers. If you think this is a record Obama can run on in the fall and survive you are living in an alternate universe. It is time to get some clear answers to tough questions before the Democrats sell their soul to someone whose lapses in judgment will come back to haunt them in the fall.
UPDATE: Touched a nerve eh? I apologize for being out of pocket, but it is tough to blog while flying back from Bogota. Some of you folks need to pour a stiff drink and do some deep breathing exercises. The facts are quite clear:
William Ayers conducted terrorist attacks inside the United States and against the U.S. Government. He does not consider himself a terrorist, but he admits he did the acts.
Barack Obama has had a long standing relationship with Ayers and is quite knowledgeable of his past.
Barack and Ayers served together on the Wood Fund. I am told, but have not yet confirmed, that they steered money to an individual who is under Federal indictment. If that is true, life gets more interesting.
William Ayers made a small financial contribution to Obama’s first campaign. In the total scheme of things, not significant, except it will be used by Republicans against Obama in the fall. How do you explain to Joe or Jane Average American that a guy who describes U.S. Marines as terrorists not only gave you money but also helped raise money for your campaign? Do you really think most Americans will shrug and say, “No big deal”?
My point in getting these issues out on the table now is to get them out now. If you don’t understand how to make a TV ad that opens with dead Marines in Vietnam and Beirut, fade to William Ayers calling them terrorists, fade to Barrack Obama and Ayers on the same board, and fade to Ayers as a fund raiser for Barrack, then you know nothing of politics.
Make your decision with the best information available. That’s my point. Let’s get Obama’s skeletons out in the open while something can still be done. Closing one’s eyes and wishing this goes away is silly.
Now, the question is very simple. You can Attack ME all you like. For one, it makes me laugh, and two, it lets me know I am doing the Right Thing, when I am dealing with people who don't even have the Intelligence to argue their points rationally and intelligently, usually not at ALL. I understand sometimes I leave you with nothing to say, because there IS no rational excuse for being "buddies" with a Terrorist who Bombed the Pentagon, then BRAGS about it, or his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, that says, "Great! Manson "offed" those "pigs"(Pregnant Sharon Tate), then ate dinner with them, all bloddy, and stuck thier FORKS IN THEIR BELLIES"(an Unborn Baby)
Nice People, Obama's Buddies, the Man and his wife, Obama SOUGHT OUT FOR ACCEPTANCE, when he wanted to "go places" in Chicago Politics. It's part of Obama's HISTORY, look it UP!
But then again, seeing most Liberal's view on "Partial Birth Abortion" Butchery, I'm not surprised, if Bernadine Dohrn's comments don't BOTHER you. Please, Educate Me! Tell me what the GOOD EXCUSE IS, for Obams being good buddies with these two pieces of Human Feces, who should be in PRISON, who wish to DESTROY this Nation! TELL ME, why it's OK, for Obama to have freinds like Ayers, Rev. Wright, and this shows his "good judgement and character". WHY do you think it IS, that the demographics SHOW, the people who elect Presidents want NOTHING to DO with Barack Obama, and his Travelling Troupe of Scam Artists, Racists and Race-Baiters, America-Haters, and Enemies of Capitalism and Free Enterprise. Including, of course, Barack and Michelle Obama.
"THIS man is NOT FIT, to be President of these United States. He has CANT STRING 3 WORDS TOGETHER, WITHOUT A TELEPROMPTER! The Empty Suit, the Product of the MOST CORRUPT Political Machine in America, the Chicago Daley Democrat Machine, has TOO MANY ASSOCIATIONS WITH UNSAVORY CHARACTERS, RACE-HATERS AND TERRORISTS WHO BOMB THE PENTAGON, THE CAPITOL, NYPD HEADQUARTERS."
