Thanks for all the comments- Kucinich, Gravel and Paul were about the only candidates who weren't owned by the CFR, but i don't understand why Kucinich officially told his supporters to give their votes to Obama, while "unofficially" he and his wife Elizabeth said they 100% approve of any Kucinich voters who are planning on coming over to the Ron Paul campaign. If Kucinich unofficially supports the Ron Paul revolution then why the heck is he officially telling his supporters to vote for Obama? Is he required to back another member from the Democratic party or something? It is obvious that Obama is a N.W.O. shill; I'm shocked that Kucinich is supporting him for the nomination. my mom, who was a fan of Kucinich for years is thoroughly disgusted by the fact that Kucinich is now apparently endorsing Obama. I'm disgusted too-by the whole thing. Ron Paul needs to switch to a third party soon-or he's done for.

PS Thanks for the info everyone. I've been passing it on to the other members of my meetup group too.  -Sonia Bianca

I don't think Ron Paul is going to endorse any other candidate. They know better than to even ask him again.

Obama’s International Socialist Connections
http://www.aim.org/aim-column/obamas-international-socialist-connections/
AIM Column  |  By Cliff Kincaid  |  February 14, 2008

The socialist connections of Obama and the Democratic Party have certainly not been featured in the Washington Post columns of Harold Meyerson, who happens not only to be a member but a vice-chair of the DSA.

Campaign workers for Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama are under fire for displaying a flag featuring communist hero Che Guevara. But Obama has his own controversial socialist connections. He is, in fact, an associate of a Chicago-based Marxist group with access to millions of labor union dollars and connections to expert political consultants, including a convicted swindler.   

Obama's socialist backing goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat.  Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul Mendelson, one of the "champions" of "Chicago's democratic left" and a long-time socialist activist. Obama's stint as a "community organizer" in Chicago has gotten some attention, but his relationship with the DSA socialists, who groomed and backed him, has been generally ignored.     

Blogger Steve Bartin, who has been following Obama's career and involvement with the Chicago socialists, has uncovered a fascinating video showing Obama campaigning for openly socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Interestingly, Sanders, who won his seat in 2006, called Obama "one of the great leaders of the United States Senate," even though Obama had only been in the body for about two years. In 2007, the National Journal said that Obama had established himself as "the most liberal Senator." More liberal than Sanders? That is quite a feat. Does this make Obama a socialist, too? 

DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. The Socialist International (SI) has what is called "consultative status" with the United Nations. In other words, it works hand-in-glove with the world body. 

The international connection is important and significant because an Obama bill, "The Global Poverty Act," has just been rushed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, with the assistance of Democratic Senator Joe Biden, the chairman, and Republican Senator Richard Lugar. The legislation (S.2433) commits the U.S. to spending hundreds of billions of dollars more in foreign aid on the rest of the world, in order to comply with the "Millennium Goals" established by the United Nations. Conservative members of the committee were largely caught off-guard by the move to pass the Obama bill but are putting a  "hold" on it, in order to try to prevent the legislation, which also quickly passed the House, from being quickly brought up for a full Senate vote. But observers think that Senate Democrats may try to pass it quickly anyway, in order to give Obama a precious legislative "victory" that he could run on.     

Another group associated with the SI is the Party of European Socialists (PES), which heard from Howard Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, back in 2006. Dean's speech is posted on the official Democratic Party website, although the European socialist parties are referred to as "progressive." Democrats, Dean said, want to be "good citizens of the world community." He spoke at a session on "Global Challenges for Progressive Politics." 

Following up, in April 2007, PES President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen reported that European socialists held a meeting "in the Democrats HQ in Washington," met with officials of the party and Democratic members of Congress, and agreed that "PES activist groups" in various U.S. cities would start working together. The photos of the trip show Rasmussen meeting with such figures as Senator Ben Cardin, Senator Bernie Sanders, officials of the Brookings Institution, Howard Dean, and AFL-CIO President John W. Sweeney, a member of the DSA. The Brookings Institution is headed by former Clinton State Department official Strobe Talbott, a proponent of world government who was recently identified in the book Comrade J as having been a pawn of the Russian intelligence service. 

The socialist connections of Obama and the Democratic Party have certainly not been featured in the Washington Post columns of Harold Meyerson, who happens not only to be a member but a vice-chair of the DSA. Meyerson, the subject of our 2005 column, "A Socialist at the Washington Post," has praised convicted inside-trader George Soros for manipulating campaign finance laws to benefit the far-left elements of the Democratic Party. Obama's success in the Democratic presidential primaries and caucuses is further evidence of Soros's success. Indeed, Soros has financially contributed to the Obama campaign.

It is not surprising that the Chicago Democrat, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, has endorsed Obama. Schakowsky, who endorsed Howard Dean for president in 2004, was honored in 2000 at a dinner sponsored by the Chicago chapter of the DSA. Her husband, Robert Creamer, emerged from federal prison in November 2006 after serving five months for financial crimes. He pleaded guilty to ripping off financial institutions while running a non-profit group.  Before he was convicted but under indictment, Creamer was hired by the Soros-funded Open Society Policy Center to sabotage John Bolton's nomination as Ambassador to the U.N. 

After his release from prison, Creamer released a book, Listen to Your Mother: Stand up Straight: How Progressives Can Win, described by one blogger as the book that was "penned in the pen." A blurb for the book declares, "Some people think that in order to win, Democrats need to move to the political center by adopting conservative values and splitting the difference between progressive and conservative positions. History shows they are wrong. To win the next election and to win in the long term, we need to redefine the political center."

In addition to writing the book, Creamer is back in business, running his firm, Strategic Consulting Group, and advertising himself as "a consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass universal health care, change America's budget priorities and enact comprehensive immigration reform." His clients have included the AFL-CIO and MoveOn.org. In fact, his client list is a virtual who's who of the Democratic Party, organized labor, and Democratic Party constituency groups. 

Creamer's list of testimonials comes from such figures as Democratic Senators Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Harold Meyerson, MoveOn.org founder Wes Boyd, and David Axelrod, a "Democratic political consultant." 

Axelrod, of course, is much more than just a "Democratic political consultant." He helped State Senator Barack Obama win his U.S. Senate seat in 2004 and currently serves as strategist and media advisor to Obama's presidential campaign.

sun tzu:  underestimating your opponent is perilous

he has gotten millions of votes even with the clintonian machine running wild.

Hillary will have to steal Texas, Ohio, and Pennsylvannia by a large margin to stay in the race.

She would risk life imprisonment in this voter fraud she plans, but millions more people are awake now and it might not work.

Also Obama's NSA created Islamic Fundamentalism and cofounded the Trilateral Commission

Obama is not a lightweight.  He is getting votes.  People need to understand socialism, feudalism, the CFR, the UN, and the plans of NWO.

The whole Hussein thing ain't gonna cut it anymore.  We need to bone up on the facts and wake people up on a deeper level than shallow puns/innuendo.

i don't understand why Kucinich officially told his supporters to give their votes to Obama

That story has been manipulated like nuts.  Here is the raw story:


http://blog.4president.org/2008/2008/01/kucinich-urges.html

Quote
Kucinich Urges Supporters to Back Obama on Second Iowa Ballot

DES MOINES, IA - Democratic Presidential candidate and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich opened the New Year by publicly asking his Iowa supporters to vote for him in the caucuses this Thursday, and suggesting that if he did not make the 15% threshold, their second ballot should be for Senator Barack Obama. "This is obviously an 'Iowa-only' recommendation, as Sen. Obama and I are competing in the New Hampshire primary next Tuesday where I want to be the first choice of New Hampshire voters.

"I hope Iowans will caucus for me as their first choice this Thursday, because of my singular positions on the war, on health care, and trade. This is an opportunity for people to stand up for themselves. But in those caucus locations where my support doesn't reach the necessary threshold, I strongly encourage all of my supporters to make Barack Obama their second choice. Sen. Obama and I have one thing in common: Change."

In Iowa Dem voters are forced to pick a second choice.

Hillary was using Edwards to break an Obama majority and Dennis wa loked at as someone to also help Edwards build more support to marginalize Obama.  Dennis did not want to play this game and told his voters to go Obama instead of Edwards (If he did not make the statement, they probably would have gone to Edwards-who he supported in 2004).

He basically was telling his supporters to block Clinton's Iowa Plan.

He caught on to Edwards and his lobbying ties and broke off the relationship with a hacksaw!

Edwards is not only CFR, he is also Bilderberg.

Ron Paul was not on the Dem ballot in Iowa so, saying he supported Obama over Paul is a bit misleading.

I have never seen him support Obama over Paul and would be a little surprised if he did.

Kucinich is a friend of Paul's and a patriot.

He is wrong in many of his beliefs (mostly domestic ones) in my opinion, but he is honest about them and he loves this country.

I trust him very much although I do not believe he understands the economic crisis we are in enough to be the right president for 2008.

Just so you know the size of Kucinich's balls and the size of his patriotism, watch him tell Rumsfeld to go f**k himself in live congressional hearings:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich grills Donald Rumsfeld

6 min - Aug 3, 2007 -  (30 ratings)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeZXYTNY6c8


Also Kucinich wants ASAP:

impeachment of Cheney then Bush

new 9/11 investigations

abolition of NAFTA/CAFTA

abolition of all BS lobbying powers on capitol hill

He has a 30 year record of going toe to toe with tyrannical corporations, politians, and elites.  He is more vocal and outspoken than Paul, but lack Paul's Samarai style of overwhelming power, laser beam focus, and comprehensive speeches to congress.

it does help that Dennis has an over 30 year record warrenting respect, but the RP nod for some reason is more powerful in my mind.

damn straight about that!

I wish more people saw AJ's first film when it came out.

The UN issue is so hard for many Dems to understand.  Even ones that completely understand the elite agenda of the rulers of this country.  I mean why wouldn't they also infiltrate the UN, what is the difference?

For the past 50 years they have been scapegoating the US and our military in their tyranny!

They have been forcing us into illegal conflicts and then forcing us to give up our land to pay for the funding of these illegal conflicts.

The UN is the biggest Ponzi scheme around!

I'm surprised how people know that Obama is related to Bush and Cheney, and that doesn't make them think something is fishy.  "Everyone is related" is what I get sometimes.  I guess it's luck that he's their cousin AND CFR affiliated.  I wish I had that kind of luck.  I would camp out in front of the casino.

yeah this is mentioned in about 10 posts here.  Lynne Cheney (Hillary's soul sister) is the most deviously outspoken about it.  Barack has mentioned it over 20 times and uses it as a joke to his advantage.  Although when you first find out it is a bit odd, he has kind of immunized himself to how effective it is as a campaign issue.

Like I have said before, we can stay at surface level with him, but his supporters are a bit deeper than that and we need to have deeper arguments to enlighten them about Ron Paul.

For instance, Barack has never mentioned the Federal Reserve, as if it is a constitutional entity.

The federal reserve is the chain of slavery on every American's neck.  These are the type of arguments that are needed to gain more momentum for Ron Paul.  If somebody thinks that Bush/Cheney 11th cousins is a valid issue then they probably also think that RP is a white supremicist.  We need to raise the bar of discourse so that no matter what whoever we talk to is left more aware of the constitution then before the conversation started.

I am very skeptical about Obama,
the reason for that is his whole message, it is all talk talk and "Change" his whole flakey message is this "Change" but how is he offering that?


He is not offering anything but empty words,  Ron Paul is offering real change, and is ignored and hated on by the Mass Media.

actually the whole Clintonian empty words strategy is a dead duck.

underestimate obama at your own peril.

he is a strong candidate, but he is interested in neo-liberalism, the kind that led russia to kill over 50 million and china to kill over 80 million.  i am not saying neocon is better, i just think their results are the same, though their methods differ.

both come from elitest mentalities ("we will tell you how to live from behind the curtains").

Read Murray Rothbard to understand more about libertarianism.

it is the only way to enforce freedom, justice, and prosperity in this country.  like it was for 100 years before the federal reserve.

Obama and Nadhmi Auchi
« Reply #61 on: June 18, 2008, 07:43:24 PM »



OBAMA AND THE  MYSTERIOUS  MR AUCHI
UNTIL Carter f**k & Partners and England's stifling libel laws got to work, the few American journalists not caught up in Obama-mania were turning to the archives of the British press to answer an intriguing question: who is Nadhmi Auchi?
Facts elsewhere were sparse. According to Forbes, Auchi was the 279 richest man in the world and a "onetime go-between for major oil
companies and state-owned oil fields". The only criticism its rich list noted was "for hosting a lavish 1,000-person wedding for his son on the same day that the anti-poverty Live 8 concert kicked off in adjacent Hyde Park".
Nothing Forbes said explained how an Iraqi exile with British citizenship had ended up on the fringes of an Obama property deal in Chicago in 2005.
Barack (pictured above) and his wife Michelle had been enchanted by a neo-Georgian house on the South Side - complete with Honduran mahogany bookcases and a wine cellar. They couldn't meet the asking price for house and surrounding grounds, and turned to their old friend Tony Rezko, who stepped in with $625,000 to buy the adjoining lot.
The slum landlord and fast-food tycoon had bankrolled Obama's campaigns in Illinois politics from 1995 onwards, but this month a federal jury in Chicago convicted the Syrian-born businessman on 16 counts of corruption. The court found him guilty of using his influence with state officials around Illinois governor Rod R. Blagojevich to shake down firms looking for official contracts.
As the case went through the courts, the mysterious name of Nadhmi Auchi (pictured right) kept popping up. Just before Rezko helped out the Obamas, the Chicago press noted that he had gone into partnership with Auchi on a land development deal. Federal investigators then revealed that Auchi wired $3.5m to the financially strapped Rezko in Chicago less than a month before the Obama house and land purchases. In other words, while Rezko was bankrolling Obama, Auchi was bankrolling Rezko.
Obama said he had no recollection of meeting Auchi. During Rezko's trial, Stuart Levine, a former Illinois political fixer turned state witness, told the court that the Obamas attended a reception Rezko organised for Auchi in 2004.
As Rezko awaits his sentence and Obama receives the Democratic nomination, you would expect American journalists to investigate the Auchi connection. If they do, they will find Auchi's lawyers are ahead of them and have scrubbed the web of newspaper reports

Carter f**k's first target was a series of revelatory articles printed in the Observer in 2003, which American bloggers and journalists were starting to notice. They described how Auchi had left Iraq in 1979 but remained on such good terms with Saddam's genocidal regime he could help organise the sale of Italian frigates to the Iraqi defence ministry.
As he made his fortune in the arms and oil businesses, the Observer noted that Auchi collected politicians "the way other men collect stamps". In Britain he gave directorships to Keith Vaz, David Steel and Norman Lamont. In 1999, on the 20th anniversary of his arrival in Britain, 130 MPs, including Tony Blair and Charles Kennedy, signed a congratulatory card.
The political connections were put to good use when the French authorities tried to extradite Auchi to face charges that he was involved in the Elf Affair, the biggest financial scandal in recent French history. For two years Auchi fought extradition, but finally gave himself up and the French court gave him a 15-month suspended sentence.
You will search in vain now, however, to find most of the Observer's reports. The indisputable fact that Auchi is a convicted criminal has not inhibited Carter f**k's enforcers. All they have had to say is that Mr Auchi is appealing against his conviction for the press to fold.
After Mr Justice Eady allowed the Saudi billionaire Khalid Bin Mahfouz to sue, even though he had paid a huge fine to the New York authorities for his part in the collapse of the crooked Bank of Credit and
Commerce International.
Meanwhile the Times, which has scooped the American press on the Rezko-Auchi connection, is also in Carter f**k's sights. Its website now runs corrections of the "Mr Auchi has asked us to make it clear" variety. In most cases, the Times never made the disputed allegations in the first place, but the corrections create the impression there is something not quite right about their stories.
Barack Obama is a lucky politician. If American journalists had led the way in investigating his shady connections, the US first amendment would have protected their work. As it was, the British press took the lead - and libel lawyers can censor it without anyone noticing.

Auchi remains a mystery. Keith Vaz is probably MI6 and Norman Lamont was smuggling things into Iran
