Fresh from the nuts ambush, Jesse’s candid speech gives us more reasons some voters should check out their votes. First he gives it to Hymie Town:

The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where “decades of putting Israel’s interests first” would end.

Jackson believes that, although “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” remain strong, they’ll lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.

And what about that post-racial society we were supposed to get?

Will Obama’s election close the chapter of black grievances linked to memories of slavery? The reverend takes a deep breath and waits a long time before responding.

“No, that chapter won’t be closed,” he says. “However, Obama’s victory will be a huge step in the direction we have wanted America to take for decades.”

I didn’t think so.


The campaigns weighting on this –

Obama shoves Jesse under the bus – again

“Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. is not an adviser to the Obama campaign and is therefore in no position to interpret or share Barack Obama’s views on Israel and foreign policy,”

and McCain mirroring my own thoughts:

“Literally, nobody knows what Barack Obama’s policies would be if he were elected president, but it’s very concerning that people believe he will not be a friend to Israel.”

The National Enquirer sheds a new light on a relationship described in Obama’s book

In his 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father, Obama identifies his childhood mentor only as “Frank,” but Obama insiders later confirmed he was referring to Davis, a journalist and poet who was a pal of Obama’s maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham.

one wouldn’t expect the Enquirer to deal with books but this is what it took to uncover Obama’s mentor

For seven years, the presidential candidate had a “father-son” relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, who has confessed to having sex with children, sadomasochism, bondage and practicing a wide array of deviant sexual activities.

Lucky everyone here writes books about themselves

Frank Marshall Davis admitted in his private papers that he had secretly authored a hard-core pornographic autobiography called Sex Rebel: Black, published in 1968.

In his shocking tell-all, Davis admits to seducing a thirteen year-old girl, voyeurism, exhibitionism, bisexuality, rape and sadomasochism.

And how does this guy appear in Obama’s book?

Barack describes how Frank Davis had a lasting effect on him and became a father figure over the seven years they knew one another on the tropical island.

In Dreams from My Father, Obama wrote: “He would read us poetry whenever we stopped by his house, sharing whiskey with Gramps out of an emptied jelly jar.

“As the night wore on, the two of them would solicit my help in composing dirty limericks.”
Obama described being counseled by Frank often and recalled drinking whiskey with him.

How do we know that this is a story?

Since Frank Davis has been identified as the author of Sex Rebel: Black, Obama has been extremely secretive about the true nature of his experience with the self-admitted deviant.

Got it! Not the “Frank” I used to know.

And as a personal note – I have hesitatedĀ  to blog this. Then I remembered watching this again yesterday, from Michelle “downright mean” Obama and what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.

After all, it speaks of the millieu Obama grew up in better than anything. The man on whose behalf people want a sonogram of Sarah Palin’s baby. The man on who brushed his shoulders of Hillary.

He grew up with and admired a child molester. Drank with him and considered him a mentor. Not unlike, later, he considered rev Goddamn America Wright a mentor.

These are the facts. I don’t make further speculations, and don’t blame me for your own.
