Factcheck.org and Barack Obama
On their website, it says the Annenberg Foundation strives to advance public well-being through improved communications. It’s basically a big, non-profit, community organization foundation. Is anyone aware that factcheck.org is run by The Annenberg Foundation? Why should you be concerned about this?
In 1995, current Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama was appointed Board Chairman and President of the Annenberg Chicago Challenge, a branch of the Annenberg Foundation. Unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist, William Ayers co-chaired the Chicago Annenberg Collaborative, which set education policy for the Challenge. Obama was authorized to delegate to the Collaborative the development of collaborative projects and programs. Obama had to obtain assistance of the Collaborative in the development of requests for proposals. Obama had to seek advice from the Collaborative regarding the programmatic aspects of grant proposals. Obama and Ayers, sat together on the board’s Governance Committee, and were part of a group of four instructed to draft the bylaws that would govern Chicago Annenberg Collaborative.
As Board Chair, Obama authorized the funding for Ayers’ educational projects, as well as projects of Ayers’ “radical” friends. Obama and Ayers raised money for ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now).
According to the Obama campaign, he and Ayers had a “tangential” relationship which seems to revolve around the Annenberg Foundation. In 2001, Obama and Ayers were still members of the Chicago Annenberg Foundation, Obama was Chairman while Ayers was touting his memoir, Fugitive Days, about his days spent “bombing” in the name of “change”.
In 2001, The New York Times interviewed William Ayers. It also happened to be printed on September 11. In that interview, Ayers said of his terrorist acts, ‘‘I don’t regret setting bombs,’’ and ‘‘I feel we didn’t do enough.’‘
Factcheck.org, who is run by the foundation Obama and Ayers worked for together, dismisses all I just stated, though countless news sources, and media outlets say otherwise. This concerns me greatly. This is only one of the many disturbing associations Barack Obama has. Why are his supporters blindly disregarding all of these associations? In 1997, after Mr. Obama took office, the new state senator was asked what he was reading by The Chicago Tribune. He praised a book by Mr. Ayers, “A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court,” which Mr. Obama called “a searing and timely account of the juvenile court system.”
Watch the short video below. This is a Bill O’Reilly episode, where he goes back and shows an old Connie Chung interview of William Ayers, and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn from 1998, 3 years after Barack started working with Ayers. Obama and Ayers continued to work together for many years after this interview aired.
Am I a conspiracy theorist? No. There’s just way too many questionable associations for Barack. Even if only one or two of them turned out to be true, that’s too many. Every single story that’s been reported on Obama has somehow been dismissed by factcheck.org.
Did you also know that On August 24, a prominent Democrat and attorney in Pennslyvania, Philip J. Berg, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against Obama and the DNC. Berg’s suit claimed that Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States and is therefore uneligible to run for President. On September 24, rather than show up with a copy of Obama’s birth certificate, attorneys for Obama and the DNC filed a motion to dismiss. On September 29, Judge Barclay Surrick denied the motion to dismiss and ordered three separate items to be delivered to the judge in three days:
* A certified copy of Obama’s birth certificate
* A certified copy of Obama’s Certification of Citizenship
* A certified copy of Obama’s Oath of Allegiance
Instead of them being delivered to the judge, the copied requested were released to factcheck.org. Why wold Obama’s attorneys file to dismiss anyway? This is just one of many questionable things the Obama campaign doesn’t have to worry about answering, because they have the protection of factcheck.org, and the mainstream media.
