New Black Panther Party Endorses Obama

On his own website.

I’m not sure that this is what the Obama campaign really needs, right now.

The racist NBPP is led by notorious extremist, Malik Zulu Shabazz, and is a registered team member and blogger on Obama’s campaign website.

Here are some excerpts from Discover The Networks on Shabazz:

In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Shabazz defended Osama bin Laden and blamed President Bush for the horrors of that day.

At a reparations rally in 2002, Shabazz blustered, “The President wants to talk about a terrorist named bin Laden. … The real terrorists have always been the United Snakes of America.” He has also intimated that Jewish conspirators possessed exclusive foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks and saved their own lives that day by not going to their jobs in the World Trade Center.

Shabazz regularly trumpets his outrage over the alleged epidemic of white-on-black violence. “If any racist, straw-chewin’ tobacco-chewin’ racist redneck lays their hand on any black man or woman in this county,” he said at an April 2001 news conference in Bowie, Maryland, “crush that devil that is trying to do you harm and to do you evil in the name of God and in accordance with your legal rights.”

He believes that all black prisoners in the United States should be set free, on grounds that they could not possibly have been tried fairly in a racist nation. In 2002 Shabazz expressed his solidarity with then-murder suspect Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, who was ultimately convicted of killing a black sheriff’s deputy in Georgia. Shabazz is also a devoted supporter of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal. In 2003 Shabazz created Black Lawyers for Justice (BLFJ), an organization promoting the notion that black inmates have been unjustly railroaded into their prison cells.

Shabazz reserves perhaps his largest measure of contempt for Jews. “I say to all Jewish people and all white people,” he told a Howard University audience in April 1994 … stop pushing your Holocaust down my throat, when the black holocaust is the worst holocaust humanity has ever seen.” Five months later at the same school, he warned, “We will never bow down to the white, Jewish, Zionist onslaught.”

Aaron Klein interviewed Shabazz for WND:

“I think the way Obama responded to the attack on him and the attempt to sabotage his campaign shows true leadership and character. He had a chance to denounce his pastor and he didn’t fall for the bait. He stood up and addressed real issues of racial discord,” stated Shabazz

“I have nothing but respect for Obama and for his pastor,” said Shabazz, referring to Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor of nearly 20 years.

Shabazz referred to Obama as a man with a “Muslim background, a man of color.”

Keep talking, Shabazz. The whole country needs to hear this.

More on Shabazz’s bio, according to Klein:

Shabazz has led racially divisive protests and conferences, such the 1998 Million Youth March in which a few thousand Harlem youths reportedly were called upon to scuffle with police officers and speakers reportedly demanded the extermination of whites in South Africa.

The NBPP chairman was quoted at a May, 2007, protest against the 400-year celebration of the settlement of Jamestown, Va., stating, “When the white man came here, you should have left him to die.”

He claimed Jews engaged in an “African holocaust” and he has promoted the anti-Semitic urban legend 4,000 Israelis fled the World Trade Center just prior to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

I hope Obama isn’t counting on the Jewish vote….’cause I’m thinking that’s not gonna happen for him at this point.

Welcome Right Wing News, DoublePlusUndead, Urban Grounds, Conservative Beach Girl, and American Pundit readers! I’d bring you all juice boxes, but I’m fresh out.


Looks like the Black Panther Page has been scrubbed. Luckily for us, DoublePlusUndead got a screenshot.


Fox News has picked up this story:

“The page in question has been removed from our campaign Web site,” Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor told after inquiries about the endorsement. “It’s our policy with any content generated by a group that advocates violence.”

Can just any yahoo off the street become a blogger for Obama? Isn’t there any screening involved?

Apparently not:

Obama ’08 Response To Fox News “Story”:

You see, more than 700,000 people have created accounts on the system. You can create one right now if you choose, in about a minute — anyone can.

Now, from time to time people get up to no good — creating fake profiles (like one for Sean Hannity created today), or posting profane or inappropriate content. When they do, the community reports the offending content and if it violates our terms of service it is removed (as the Sean Hannity profile was). has been at the core of our bottom-up organizing strategy. The tools available have been put to work by a community of supporters that is bigger and more powerful than anything presidential politics has ever seen.

Yada yada yada…with all due respect…it’s time to rethink this strategy, the potential for embarrassing episodes like this one is just too great.

Obama ’08 blogger, Sam Graham-Felsen, in his scathing Response to Fox News “Story” (note the sneer quotes on “story”) suggests that the New Black Panther site was bogus.

Yet in the WND story I linked to yesterday, Aaron Klein interviewed NBPP national chairman, Malik Zulu Shabazz, who confirmed his organization’s endorsement of Obama.

The NBPP endorses Obama on its own page of the presidential candidate’s official site that allows registered users to post their own blogs.

The group labels itself on Obama’s site as representing “Freedom, Justice, and Peace for all of Mankind.” It links to the official NBPP website, which contains what can be arguably regarded as hate material.

The NBPP racked up 396 Obama campaign points, which purportedly are points given to users who raise funds, sign up other supporters or score high user ratings.

This is a “story”, all right.


Aaron Klein of World Net Daily weighs in on the “scrubbing”.

UPDATE (March 20):

Here’s a You Tube video of Shabazz and Hashim Nzinga appearing on various Fox News programs. Talk about black hate and rage:

  2. I’m thinking Obama’s political advisor should be taken out and shot. Of course, this isn’t on the MSM because that would be clearly racist; they only report on McCain endorsers. Aren’t we lucky to have an impartial press?

    Semper Fi

  5. This is an incredibly lame story, to be honest. This is like saying blogger or facebook is a racist organization because the KKK sets up a page on their site. The Obama site is set up like any of those other social networking sites, except that I doubt it’s as well moderated since, well, it’s not a whole business by itself.

    Nothing to see here, move along…


  6. These are people who scan every single publication in the world for the most obscure reference to anything about them or their opposition.

    A person would have to be an absolute idiot to believe that they were not aware of the pages existence, especially since it hit the blogs a full day before FOX picked it up, and two days before that, it was a topic on Yahoo Answers.

    I’ll tell you when they decided to take it down. When, and only when Fox informed them that Shabbazz was going to be a guest to explain it, and would they like to comment.


  7. Yes, he was on Hannity and Combs last night and then again this morning on their morning show.

    My kinda guy. He just makes you want to reach out and grab him for all you are worth, right around the neck.

    I can’t really hate him though. He is killing Obama with his praise. 😉


  8. Just go to youtube and type in New Black Panther Party. What he says in all those videos is the very same crap he spouted this time.

    I have to admit, it was kind of funny to see the look on his face when they asked him what he thought about obama finally dropping his endorsement because he advocated violence.

    For the most part is was the same as always. Never answered a single question and just ranted on and on.


  9. Of course the NEW BLACK PANTHERS are nothing more then the origional black panthers it still supports a antiamerican antiwhite agenda their terrorist still

  16. Obama’s efforts to connect to the Republican Party, specifically Bush, and Dick Cheney, of the Halliburton Company, dates back to the Presidents Grandfather, Prescott Bush, and indeed Cheney was once an executive officer of Halliburton.

    The American military pounds Iraq with Artillary, bombs, and the like, destroying large sections of cities, and infra-structures, then Halliburton comes in to rebuild. Halliburton and Halliburton associated companies have raked in ten’s of billions.

    Obama is just like the BIG HALIBURTAN. Haliburton has contracted to build detention centers in the U.S. similiar to the one in Quantanammo Bay, Cuba. Halliburton does nothing to earn the Two Dollars for each meal an American Serviceman in Iraq eats.

    Halliburton was scheduled to take control of the Dubai Ports in The United Arab Emiirate. The deal was canceled when Bush was unable to affect the transfer of the American Ports.

    Now we see what some might suspect as similiar financial escapading from the Democrats.

    Two years ago, Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity gave a $50 million contract to a start-up security company – Companion- owned by now-indicted businessman (TONY REZKO) Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley, to train Iraqi power-plant guards in the United States. An Iraqi leadership change left the deal in limbo. Now the company, Companion Security, is working to revive its contract.
    Involved along with Antoin “Tony” Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here.

    Recently, Obama’s campaign staff have been vetted by the IRS to disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides, his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming Tax Fraud charges — Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM “PATWANG-FWEEE” and disclose Obama’s MUSLIM Farrakhan mob connection to Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama’s spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright’s daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said “truly epitomized greatness.” That man is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan and Chicago’s Trinity United Church are trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah. Obama should stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It’s time to introduce this false, fake Xerox – X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke “GLORK” Xerox – X box to meet the Buffalo “GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA” Police Department Buffalo Creek. He is MAD!!! —


    “GLORK” Obama looks like Alfred E. Newman: “Tales Calculated To Drive You.” He is a MUSLIM “Glork” He’s MAD!!! Alfred E. Neuman is the fictional mascot of Mad. The face had drifted through American pictography for decades before being claimed by Mad editor Harvey Kurtzman after he spotted it on the bulletin board in the office of Ballantine Books editor Bernard Shir-Cliff, later a contributor to various magazines created by Kurtzman.
    Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM “PATWANG-FWEEE” and stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It’s time to introduce this false, fake “GLORK” Xerox – X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke Xerox – X box to meet the Buffalo “GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA” Police Department Buffalo Creek.

    Michelle Obama should be ashamed.

    “GLORK” Michelle Obama should be ashamed of her separatist-racist connection to Farrakhan and Chicago’s Trinity United Church trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah. Beneath that Darth-Vader-Mace-Windu-Jedi-Me ssiah Helmet Hairdo of Michelle Obama lurks a Wildabeast. If Michelle Obama new what her husband — the Hope-A-Dope, Fonster Monster — Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama did in Harlem, she would wash her wide-open, Hus-suey loving MUSILM mouth out, with twenty-four (24) mule-team double-cross X-boX-BorraX. The Lexis-Nexis-Albatross-Abacus-Complex of Barack and Michelle’s relationship with MUSLIM “PATWANG-FWEEE” Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and black demagoguery of Obama’s Stump Lines Echo Malcolm X; is about as much of a Hoax as Oxfam volunteers believe in HIV– AIDS Witch Doctors in Africa they feed.
    “God damn America” – Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama —
    “God bless America” – Pope Benedict XVI and Hillary Clinton —
    If Barack Obama had married Shaniqua instead of Michelle, his Jackenapes Collegial Elitism Attraction, black rage, and “GLORK” black demagoguery of Obama’s Stump Lines Echo Malcolm X; would be taken a lot more seriously. Expectations are that Obama will manage his explosive MUSLIM JIHADI — FATIMA EXTREMISM obsession bitter. He is a MUSLIM “Glork” It’s time to introduce this false, fake “GLORK” Xerox – X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke Xerox – X box to meet the Buffalo “GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA” Police Department Buffalo Creek. He’s MAD!!!


    The Apologia has arrived and once again the self-indicting, separatist-racist Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama, promises to heal the wounds of the world. The speech is the rude awakening of mass messianism of his campaign. Apologetically, Obama the MUSLIM double-cross X-boX-BorraX has an astonishingly empty two-prawn echelon explanation of his misjudgment.
    In the first prawn: with regard to his connection to separatist-racist Rev. Wright; Obama summons voodoo and juju to express slavery as beginning and ending with the Rev. Wright.
    In the second prawn: Obama’s speech takes credit for Ashley’s dream. A dream of unity Martin Luther King, Jr. borrowed from Ashley for his historic “I Have A Dream” speech. In Obama’s speech, the connective bond Ashley, the elderly black man and Obama’s grandmother share; represents Obama’s self-indicting rise to the Harvard Yard. For Obama, the grand flag of language is the semi-fore of words, bestowed upon our nation by the messiah-alumni from Harvard. Obama’s Swoon-Song Apologia to the nation represents a failed hymn — a hymn that fails to heal the nation, repair the world, or make this time different than all the rest. Obama’s speech is a brilliant failure.


    The ILLIGITIAMTE MUSLIM MESSIA has blundered yet again!!! The self-indicting, separatist-racist Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama, lied about the politics of his campaign. The danger involved with this self-aggrandizing, -a-hoop, Hope-A-Dope, Fonster Monster — Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama is that — “Like Father Like Son” Obama is constantly wanting to impress America with “…his incapacity for sound judgment.” In 2005, Sen. Obama voted for the Dick Cheney energy bill, which Cheney wrote in secret with the oil industry. Hillary Clinton opposed Cheney’s energy bill, has a plan to eliminate oil industry tax breaks, and would require oil companies to contribute to a $50 billion strategic energy fund to jump-start research and investment in clean energy technologies. On top of the horrible crime Obama executed in Harlem, the fact is, we have to hear it from Karl Rove about Obama’s latest Campaign Crisis.

    “GLORK” Top Ten Obama Lies:

    1. Obam said his parents met at the Selma march — Reality: He was born 4 years before that.

    2. Obam said he was a constitutional law professor — Reality: . . . Obama Made This False Claim In His 2004 Senate Race. “Several direct-mail pieces issued for Obama’s primary [Senate] campaign said he was a law professor at the University of Chicago. He is not. He is a senior lecturer (now on leave) at the school..

    3. Obam said he spoke fluent Indonesian as a child — Reality: . . . Obama has claimed on numerous occasions to have become fluent in Indonesian in six months. Yet another Phi Beta Krakatau lie from Obama. Those who knew him disputed that during recent interviews. Israel la Pareira Darmawan, Obama’s 1st-grade teacher, said she attempted to help him learn the Indonesian language by going over pronunciation and vowel sounds. Truth-be-told: Obama’s Indonesian teachers say Kaku-Pooh.

    4. Obam said he was involved in community asbestos and housing project for the poor — Reality: Didn’t happen. This was the basis for Barack and Michelle’s claim, that he was a community activist on the South and East Side of Chicago. Usher United Arab Emirates (UAE) A+ lie both he and his twenty-four (24) mule-team, Hus-suey loving wife Michelle Obama have been claiming in the campaign — Reality: The Chicago Newspaper’s Obelus — Kiss-A-Cuss:…NO-MAMA.

    5. Obam said in his book that he received his racial awakening at age nine reading a Life/Ebony Magazine story about a black man who was scarred trying to dye his skin white — Reality: Didn’t happen. Both Magazines (Life and Ebony), and the Rev. Wright and Farrakhan MUSLIM Trumpet Newsmagazine say, just didn’t happen.

    6. Obam’s Campaign Didn’t Have The “Technical Capacity” To Produce The “1984” Ad:

    Obama: “But it’s not something that we had anything to do with or were aware of and that frankly, given what it looks like, we don’t have the technical capacity to create something like that.” (CNN’s “Larry King Live,” 3/24/07) — Reality:…The Creator Admitted All It Took Was A “Sunday Afternoon” On His Mac. Phillip de Vellis: “I made the ad on a Sunday afternoon in my apartment using my personal equipment (a Mac and some software), uploaded it to YouTube, and sent links around to blogs.”

    7. Obam’s Campaign Claimed His High School Friend Tried To Extort Money From Them:

    “According To The Obama Campaign, [Obama’s Punahou Classmate Keith] Kakugawa Explicitly Raised The Possibility That He Could Make Up False Stories About Obama, Implying He Would Do So If The Campaign Did Not Give Him Money.” (Maurice Possley, Kirsten Scharnberg and Ray Gibson, — Reality: “…An Old Friend’s Troublesome Return,” Chicago Tribune, 3/25/07).

    8. Obam voted to bring low-cost foreign labor into New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina — Reality:…This was a slap in the face against the African-Americans who were displaced in that city. Obama also voted to place Michael Chertoff, the man responsible for the Katrina catastrophe, in charge of Homeland Security. Obama voted for Senate-Bills that gave Blackwater the funding they needed to shoot the folks of New Orleans who were only trying to save their own lives. The towel head voted to allow Michael Chertoff to waive all applicable laws, including murder, torture, kidnaping, and he suppoted water-boarding.

    9. Obam voted more than five times for USA-PATRIOT ACT renewal — Reality:…This is a Senate-Bill patently offensive to most Americans. City after city has passed resolutions condemning USA-PATRIOT ACT. Obama chose to side with tyranny over freedom and Bush over the folks on this issue. The Real ID Act, which would allow Michael Chertoff to declare martial law and imprison Americans, was supported by Obama, as noted above.

    10. Obam is not a MAD MAN. Sen. Obama has not exaggerated his involvement with the long-simmering sub-text of the October Surprise “X-Files” — The 1980 election scandal exposed….an extraneous tenuous association between Obama and an aging (VX) Vietnam-era Weather Underground Radical Extremist William Ayers. Sen. Obama Is not involved along with Antoin “Tony” Rezco, long time friend and neighbor, now-indicted businessman (TONY REZKO), or Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley. Sen. Obama is not involved with, nor has Sen. Obama ever been exposed to any nuclear security, bribery, money payoffs, or cronyism in the state of Illinois; or criminal activities related to the BIG HALIBURTAN and V.P. Cheney’s Halliburton bribery case; or any political misjudgment in his escalating Campaign Crisis. “GLORK” Sen. Obama Is not involved with any Hoax or Oxfam volunteers and HIV– AIDS Witch Doctors in Africa they feed. Sen. Obama is not associated with Exiled “God damn America” SOULJAH JIHAD — Rev. Jeremiah Wright, MUSLIM EXTREMIST (MalcomX KillA) — Louis Farrakhan, and black demagoguery of Obama’s Apologia – Mea Culpa; or Stump Lines Echo Malcolm X; Sen. Obama is not a separatist-racist. Michelle Obama AKA Wildabeast is not a separatist-racist. Sen. Obama is not a self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke Xerox – X box. “GLORK” Obama executed no crime in Harlem. Obama is Not America’s Poison — Reality:…He’s Radio-Active.


    The Republicans’ disengagement (media bias), if not disillusionment, with the economic campaign issues is borne out by the fact that many more Republicans are able to explain, extinguish, and excoriate the name Barrack Obama with the term (JIHAD), than can name Bush/Dick Cheney and McCain — as the Big Oil — BIG HALLIBURTAN politicians expanding GOP IRAQ WAR ideology, and Republican White House Party Elders’ GI Bill of Rights for the 21st century IRAQ WAR ECONOMY. Even among Republicans, Clinton is much more visible than GOP presumptive candidate John McCain towards affecting positively the important economic issues facing America’s middle class economy.

    When asked who they would vote for in the general election for president of the United States, the natural pendulum swing in America is 79% of Republicans named Hillary Clinton as their choice. Reasons for Obama’s Campaign Crisis “GLORK” Campaign Crisis include:

    “Obama has more holes in him than Swiss-Cheese.” (CNN’s “,” 4/01/08)

    Obama’s presidential campaign has received $2,812,336 from firms that employ registered federal lobbyists. []

    Obama has taken $405,747 from the Pharmaceutical industry. []

    Obama has received $1,185,937 from the Commercial Banking industry. []

    Obama has received over six million dollars from the Securities & Investment industry. []

    Obama has taken $608,822 from the Insurance industry. []

    WASHINGTON — Obama’s support among Democrats nationally has softened.

    “GLORK” Sen. Barack Obama’s support among Democrats nationally has softened over the last month, particularly among men and upper-income voters, as voters have taken a slightly less positive view of him than they did after his burst of victories in February, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

    The survey suggests that Mr. Obama, Democrat of Illinois, may have been at something of a peak in February, propelled by a string of primary and caucus victories over Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, and that perceptions of him are dramatically trending downward.

    Mr. Obama’s favorability rating among Democratic primary voters has dropped seventeen percentage points, to 42 percent, since the last Times/CBS News survey, in late February. While that figure is steadily declining, this dramatic decline came in a month during which he endured withering attacks from Mrs. Clinton, and responded to reports that his exiled former pastor had made politically inflammatory statements from his church’s pulpit in Chicago, and swirling questions about what Barack Obama did in Harlem.

    The events of the last month appear to have fundamentally altered the race for the party’s nomination and provided Mrs. Clinton’s campaign extensive evidence of a collapse in Mr. Obama’s standing or an overwhelming preference voiced for Mrs. Clinton by Democratic and Republican voters in polls: — developments in Obama’s ongoing Campaign Crisis, that could be used to persuade uncommitted super-delegates to sign on with Hillary Clinton.

    Twenty-six percent of the general electorate voters who heard of the Apologia speech that Mr. Obama the self-indicting, separatist-racist Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama gave to try to deal with the controversy over Obama’s separatist-racist connection to Farrakhan and Chicago’s Trinity United Church trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah, said it made them dislike him. And 74 percent of Democrats and Republicans said Mr. Obama’s Campaign Crisis “GLORK” Campaign Crisis “God damn America” – Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama. “God bless America” – Pope Benedict XVI and Hillary Clinton….stems from the fact that he shows continued misjudgment for even the most challenging problems. Mr. Obama lacks the decisive capability to lead, willingness to listen, conviction and courage. Mr. Obama uses false charges and exaggerated claims to play politics with national security. Mr. Obama lied about the politics of his campaign, and knew about Rev. Wright’s MUSLIM Farrakhan – JIHADI — FATIMA EXTREMIST mob connection to Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ.

    Fact Check: Sen. Obama on Lobbyists —

    “When it comes to lobbyists, Senator Obama’s words might sound nice but voters need to make sure they read the fine print. Despite trying to give the impression that he has no relationship with lobbyists or special interests, the reality is that Senator Obama takes money from people who hire lobbyists, partners of lobbyists, spouses of lobbyists, former lobbyists and state lobbyists.” –Statement from Clinton Deputy Communications Director, Phil Singer
    Sen. Obama Has Ties to Lobbyists in His Presidential Bid

    Public Citizen: 10 of Sen. Obama’s bundlers have been federal lobbyists. The Public Citizen report listed the following ten bundlers for Sen. Obama who have registered as federal lobbyists: Frank Clark, Commonwealth Edison; Scott Harris, Harris Wiltshire and Grannis; Allan J. Katz, Akerman Senterfitt; Robert S. Litt, Arnold & Porter; Thomas J. Perrelli, Jenner and Block; Thomas A. Reed, Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis LLP; Paul N. Roth, Schulte Roth & Zabel; Miriam Sapiro, Summit Strategies; Alan Solomont, Solomont Bailis Ventures; and Tom E. Wheeler, Core Capital Partners. [Public Citizen, 1/29/08]

    Sen. Obama takes money from employees of firms that lobby and has lobbyists as advisers. “But those who lobby for a living say it’s not that simple, and even Obama’s stance shows some flexibility. He won’t take money from federal lobbyists but accepts money from employees of firms and corporations that lobby, and he uses lobbyists and other government relations professionals as advisers… Obama has also used major fundraisers who are registered lobbyists on the state level. And he uses registered federal lobbyists such as Broderick Johnson, who lobbies for AT&T and Shell Oil, among others, as a campaign adviser. Because Johnson isn’t giving money to Obama, his name won’t show up in Federal Election Commission records.” [Chicago Tribune, 2/10/08]

    Bloomberg: Five of [Obama’s] ten biggest sources of funds are groups of employees at law firms that lobby in Washington. “While Obama doesn’t accept money from registered federal lobbyists, five of his 10 biggest sources of funds are groups of employees at law firms that lobby in Washington…Among Obama’s top donors were employees of the Chicago-based law firm of Sidley Austin LLP, who gave $105,750 in the first quarter. The firm was paid $4.5 million last year” for lobbying the federal government. [Bloomberg, 6/7/07]

    Prior to His Presidential Campaign, Sen. Obama took Money from Lobbyists and PACs

    1996-2004: $296,000 of the $461,000 Sen. Obama raised as a state senator came from PACs, corporate contributions or unions. “But behind Obama’s campaign rhetoric about taking on special interests lies a more complicated truth. A Globe review of Obama’s campaign finance records shows that he collected hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists and PACs as a state legislator in Illinois, a US senator, and a presidential aspirant. In Obama’s eight years in the Illinois Senate, from 1996 to 2004, almost two-thirds of the money he raised for his campaigns — $296,000 of $461,000 — came from PACs, corporate contributions, or unions, according to Illinois Board of Elections records. He tapped financial services firms, real estate developers, healthcare providers, oil companies, and many other corporate interests, the records show.” [Boston Globe, 8/9/07]

    In his 2004 U.S. Senate race, Sen. Obama raised $128,000 from lobbyists and $1.3 million from PACs. “Obama’s US Senate campaign committee, starting with his successful run in 2004, has collected $128,000 from lobbyists and $1.3 million from PACs, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonprofit organization that tracks money in politics. His $1.3 million from PACs represents 8 percent of what he has raised overall.” [Boston Globe, 8/9/07]

  18. We can’t control who follows us or likes us. That party is Black, so it’s natural for them to follow a Black candidate. However, many other races follow and like him. That is a fact. I would be more concerned about Arian web sites advocating purity in America and endorsing white candidates. Those, we know have been in existance for hundreds of years. The Panthers are harmless. Just pissed off Blacks who’s minds have been reprogrammed to hate based on the treatment of blacks in the past. action equals opposite and equal reaction. the question is, what are we going to do about it from this point on?

[…]The most striking thing about the Democratic tradition is that it presided over the beginnings of the three great conflicts that defined the 20th century: Woodrow Wilson and World War I, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and World War II, and Harry S. Truman and the Cold War. (At this level of analysis, we will treat the episodes of the Cold War such as Korea, Vietnam or Grenada as simply subsets of one conflict.) This is most emphatically not to say that had Republicans won the presidency in 1916, 1940 or 1948, U.S. involvement in those wars could have been avoided.[…]
