When sermons of Obama’s Chicago pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced during the Iowa primaries, it threatened to derail Obama’s campaign. ABC aired one where Wright screamed, “Goddamn America!” Edward Klein interviewed Wright, who told him Obama’s team tried to buy his silence.

Agreed. It’s Lenin’s dictum, “the worse, the better.”

Too bad John McCain didn’t understand what even Barack himself understood — that Wright could kill Barack’s candidacy.

Too bad that a-hole was our presidential candidate. While he was laid up in the hosp having been shot down by the communist enemy in Vietnam, Obama's terrorists friends, Ayers and Dohrn, were waging war against military and law enforcement facilities here. They actually received rings of 'honor' for their aid and comfort of the North Vietnamese enemy. The rings were made of metal from US aircraft shot down during the war. How could McCain be such a wuss going after Obama?? His plane was shot down by the North Vietnamese!

Reference to Rainman. The character played by Dustin Hoffman actually reminds me of the real-life John McCain. I know, it’s autism, not mental retardation, but I was generalizing.

And I know I’m being unfair to those with autism. John McCain is worse. Far, far worse.

Interesting how nobody knows anybody else in Chicago. Obama doesn’t know Wright, he doesn’t know Ayers, he doesn’t know Farrakhan.

It’s one big left-wing cabal.

These guys support Obama because they know he’s one of them. It’s only the American public that doesn’t know it.

From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:

"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive — 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Deflecting Obama’s time and connection to Wright was one of the main accomplishments of Journo List. The Obama machine is like an organized crime group. Pay offs and threats

“$150,000 doesn’t buy silence.”

For me, yeah it would, but for Jeremiah, no way.
Axelrod probably yanked the briber back to DNC realizing that they didn’t need to offer Wright an Indian nickel.

The Stasi stenographers wouldn’t report anything he would say anyways. Wright also knew that anything he said would just come back home to roost.

“How much money did he offer you?”

“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.

A little off point for sure, but have you read the book? Or has anyone here? I’d love to know if it is worth a read, has any new information or whatever....

BTW, thanks for posting the article.

"Well Wright did retire about that time, didn’t he? Having a huge mansion built..."

At the time it was reported as being in a mostly white neighborhood, in a gated community. The home is 10,340-square-foot, and has four bedrooms, among many other extras. It cost $1.6 million to build. Trinity Church paid for the home, apparently taking out the loan from Shore Bank. Another article reports that the church's agreement with the bank added an additional $10 million dollar line-of-credit, which is probably the money paid Wright for his silence. This article explains that the property has since been sold to ATG Trust, a company that specializes in tax shelters, trusts, and investment management. That was done so Wright would be protected from having to pay taxes. Here's the link to the original article with pictures:

If you read the full interview, he was threatened that ‘things would get worse, much worse.’
____________________________

I didn’t take it as a threat towards Wright so much as saying that people would continue to publicize Wright’s sermons and use them against Odrama. I could be wrong, but that’s how I took it.

"like a retard going to k-mart to buy underwear"

"Not sure that I get that one. I would suppose that there's irony in that, but then I wouldn't get that one either."

Not K-mart but Walmart. Not underwear, but socks.

So I am to believe Wright shutup for a paltry $150,000?

$15,000,000?

Whatever he got, it wasn't for shutting up; that alone would have caused Obama even more trouble. Like, eg. "Obama must have bribed him, or threatened him." Obama had to repudiate him on the basis of "new evidence".

Whatever happened behind the scenes, Wright set that up with his Apr. 28, 2008 interview.

Here are some excerpts from Obama's response:

Senator Barack Obama, saying that he'd had enough, forcefully repudiated his former pastor yesterday and declared that racially charged remarks made by the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. contradict "all that I stand for."

Obama said he had tried to give Wright "the benefit of the doubt," but decided to disavow Wright after the minister's nationally televised appearance on Monday reignited a lingering controversy on the eve of two crucial Democratic presidential primaries.

Wright, he added, is no longer "the man I met 20 years ago."


And with some help from his friends (media and McCain), Bob's your uncle.

He wasn’t concerned about the press going after Wright, he cared about how it reflected on him. It truly is incredible and I pray more truth is revealed every day.
