Skip to comments.The ‘bribe’ to silence Wright [Obama’s team tried to buy his silence]

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.
(Excerpt) Read more at nypost.com ...
Why not? He's an illegal, and his relatives here illegally get them.
“$150,000 doesnt 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.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
Interesting how it comes out now. Could he be wanting more hush money?
He's no different politically than the usurper. They both vote lockstep.
I'm sure Göring would have been better than Adolph too.
A vote for a nazi is still a vote for a nazi!
“No surprise Obama and his advisers would not want it looked into.”
The chicago mob doesn’t care now. Anything that shifts the focus off of the economy and barry’s record as POTUS is fine with them. They calculate that they won in 2008 when a lot of this character stuff was known and they can win again if this is a main issue in the campaign.
I am going to vote the marxist kenyan out of the white house. You can strut and name call. Nobody cares.
That’s right...and things did get much worst!
Maybe now we know what happened to Donald Young and the two other guys who were executed! Maybe that is what shut up Mr. Wright?
Not ‘God Bless America’, but ‘God d*mn America’.
OK....the big problem here is Obama is under the impression the things Wright says are true. I'm a little confused, though...since Obama conveniently claims to have not heard any of the important stuff.
Here comes the push for Hillary. If you start hearing about Zero's eligibility, it's a lock. From first black to first woman. How hard could it be?
“Will Barak be able to get unemployment benefits? Food stamps etc...Free lunches for the girls??”
“The Secretary of the Treasury administers a (taxable) pension. It is equal to Executive Level I rate of pay, an executive department head’s salary (currently $191,300). The pension begins immediately after a president’s departure from office”
Nope, not Los Angeles, but in Lower Louisiana, as in the Bayou.
You support a baby killer out of hatred/fear of another baby killer?
I KNOW right from wrong. Apparently you do not.
I agree with you CO...something’s afoot.
....Why is all of this stuff coming out now? And Obama is not really putting up much of a fight-he doesn’t even seem to care if he wins....and that is odd for someone who is as narcisstic as he is.
Just because HE can’t be in power doesn’t mean the Dems can’t put someone else there who is on the same ship to Commie-topia....
And that would be Hillary.
I’m sure there are Dems who feel like WE do right now-they don’t have much of a choice on who to vote for and don’t like Obama anymore...and they might stay home.
So, it is possible for Hillary to come and save the day-for them. She’s been awfully quiet....something’s up.
What does it take to wakeup Americanswho still swallow the Democrat Pablum to the fact this Scumbag, Obama Hussein, is a corrupt and Murderous Foreign Fraud who makes the Black Panthers look like Saints sitting on the right hand of Our Lord and Savior??????? The Scumbag and his Handlers and Promoters are the Most Evil of SATAN’s GOPHERS!!
This is why Romney shouldn’t run from his religion, but embrace it. The LDS run the most Scout troops, are pro-family, and pro-America. It’s a great contrast between Obama’s BLT, his pro-homosexual agenda, and anti-Americanism.
It’s going to end badly for the amateur...
WHAT ELSE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT OBAMA BOYHOOD
President tied to Bill Ayers’ radical leftist organization from age 11
“Morrissey points out that this makes Obama out to be a liar when he said he didn’t listen to Wright’s sermons for 20 years. He knew full well the kind of poison Wright had been spewing all those years. Chillingly, it also shows Obama agrees with his pastor “telling the truth” about America.
In case you haven’t noticed, the press is ignoring both this story and the book. It will be interesting to see how the campaign responds and whether or not Wright confirms the allegation.”
God bless you, ETL! It never fails that when there’s a posted topic about Obama that screams “links to verifications/sources needed here”, there you come with the goods - presented thoroughly and succinctly.
Glass is raised to you, with sincere thanks for your intelligence and dedication.
Wright is the gift that keeps on giving!
Well, at least candidate Obama didn’t have to bribe the media to hide things. They did it willingly. There was no vetting of this Marxist. FORWARD!!!
The last election should have been about Rev Wright...This election should have been about Wright also.
Romney can not mention Wright because of his own cult membership
It`s a crying shame...
Sub-Saharan Supremacy is what Bill Ayers and Obama forced teachers in inner-city Chicago schools to be trained in, paid by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Ayers and Obama were in charge of a bunch of money, with the challenge to use it to improve Chicago schools, and what they believed would improve schools was to teach the teachers to teach Black students that Blacks are supreme, that they are not Americans, and that America has raped them. See http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/225971/wright-101/stanley-kurtz
Obama PERSONALLY supported the ideology of the New Black Panthers to such an extent that he chose the teaching of that ideology as the way to IMPROVE Chicago schools. All the things they could have done with that money, and Barack Obama and Bill Ayers chose to teach Sub-Saharan Supremacy.
Possibly so they would have the ground troops for later domestic turmoil. The Black youths who beat a 50-year-old man with a hammer after attending a Trayvon rally were associated with the Yawhew bin Yahweh cult - which is a Sub-Saharan supremacy cult that just uses the name of a different “god” (”Yahweh”) than The New Black Panther’s “Allah”.
Obama’s ties to all this crap are much, much closer than simply introducing Kevin Bell (did I remember his name right?) before he gave a speech. He is personally implicated in requiring that inner-city teachers be trained in Sub-Saharan Supremacy, which is the ideology of Jeremiah Wright and of the Black Panthers (old and new). There is no way Obama can claim distance because he “missed those Sundays”, because he personally chose to force this ideology onto Chicago teachers.
We can be pretty sure that Obama is not American unless he naturalized at some point. But why would he even WANT to take an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution, if he believed that America under that Constitution had raped millions of black persons - as he taught Chicago teachers to teach their students?
The only reason to take that oath is if he intended to break it. Taqiyya - lying in order to get power/position to advance the Muslim agenda. Which is what Obama told the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 - that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda, and that the Muslim world needed to be patient with him while he got Obamacare passed and then he would focus on that Muslim agenda.
The agenda that all Muslim sects agree on is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia. And everything in Obama’s past and present fits that agenda.
Obama will try to use gay marriage to get the money necessary to buy off the people necessary to win re-election. If re-elected he could take the slow route to destroying the country (let the demoralization waste us away) or he could take the faster route - revolution. Seems like DHS is preparing for civil war brought on by an economic collapse so I suppose that may be the plan. If gay marriage was enacted before that happens (small chance) it would be a lot easier to identify the gays (to hang them according to sharia) if those people were already officially married. Of course, Obama himself would only be hung if his owners believed him to no longer be valuable.
ABCNBCSeeBSPMSNBCCNNWaPoNYT will ignore this story. Instead, they will hunt down Romneys grade-school classmates to see if he used to beat other kids up for their lunch money when he was 8.
None of these groups are sincerely religious. Religion is only used a means of gathering people to indoctrinate in their anti-American, Marxist ideology. That's what "Black Liberation Theology" is. It's a "religion" concocted by communists: a BOGUS religion. Should the Communist ever gain complete power that crap would disappear forever. They'll be no use for a "god" of any sort. "The Party" would be "god".
Trust me, it ain't REALLY about Allah.
Louis Farrakhan, Santiago de Cuba, February, 1998:
"There is not a member of the black masses in the United States who is not proud of the example set by Cuba and its revolution, with Comandante Fidel at its head"
"Minister Farrakhan and his delegation met privately with President Fidel Castro of Cuba."
Unity generates power to change reality
By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
"The time has never been more ripe for a strategic relationship between the Black, Brown, Native American and the poor of this nation and the world."
"We need a Ministry of Defense. Our young men are born soldiers, but they are in the wrong war. They are fighting a war in the streets of America against each other, or they are fighting an unjust war overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to bring our boys home and put them into the Ministry of Defense, so we can defend our communities, rather than destroy our communities.
We need a Ministry of Art and Culture. We applaud the hip hop community, the leaders of young people all over the world, but I want the young generation of artists to know there is a bigger purpose for art and culture than popping our fingers and shaking our backsides.
Mao Tse Tung, throughout his long march to conquer China, had a billion people whose lives he had to transform. Many of them were victims of opium, drugs and prostitution, like we are. But Mao Tse Tung went to the cultural community and they accepted his idea. Then, through song, dance, poetry, drama, documentaries, movies and books, the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people. China became a world power on the base of culture and the artistic community. If we had a Ministry of Art and Culture in every city, [we'd] create this movement [in the U.S.], we could say to our young people, What is the idea of the Time and are you reflecting that idea in your songs, dance and music?
We need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce. Do you think that a Millions More Movement should not be involved in the development of Africa, the Caribbean and Central America? ... we need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce that can link the struggle here with Africa and the Caribbean, Central and South America.
This is Farrakhan's own "Nation Of Islam" website
Farrakhan hails Obama as 'hope of entire world'
Louis Farrakhan, at the annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008: "This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better"..."If you look at Barack Obama's audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed."
Video of Farrakhan's Obama endorsement at the above 'annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008'. Hear him (Farrakhan) call Obama "The Messiah" And speak of "universal change":
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA
From the website of the Communist Party, USA...
(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
After the election....
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
And of course with so many far left outfits and, no doubt, foreign (enemy) nations supporting the POS, money would be no object.
Exactly. That’s why I had to put quotation marks around “god” and “Yahweh”. I worship the Yahweh of the Bible, and it offends me greatly that these people take the name of the Lord as a means to do whatever they darn well please. Same thing with the “Lord’s Resistance Army” in Africa, which pretends to combine Christianity and Islam but which instead just uses those names in order to do whatever it wants (which just happens to be murderous rioting through coerced children).
Seems like everywhere you look, religion and politics are mixing - using the name of religion in order to garner support for an ideology or agenda that has nothing to do with any actual religion.
The two beasts working together in service to the dragon. All over the place.
Actually he had to do worse, at least with Fox. He had to threaten them. That’s been verified by an independent investigator (Doug Hagman) and by law enforcement (Mike Zullo of Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse).

From "45 Communist Goals", as per "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:
Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963:
#27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion.
'Goals' 4-45 can be found here:
I believe the communists and Islamists have united under George Soros, who has always been a communist and who now says that he fears that America will win the “war on terror” because it would strengthen both America and capitalism (the two great evils that Soros has to fight since he seriously believes he is God). Soros is the union of corrupt religion (Islam and a bunch of other rag-tag imitations) and corrupt government (communism) - Revelation’s beast out of the sea and beast out of the land. And he chose as his puppet Barack Obama, who has ALSO always been the union of communism and Islamism.
Just like Raila Odinga - Obama’s cousin in Kenya - was the union of communism and Islamism, as a Memorandum of Understanding signed by both Odinga and the Muslims in the 2007 election showed. And Obama’s campaign illegally sent $1 million to Odinga’s campaign. Obama illegally campaigned in person with Raila Odinga. And when the election was declared for Odinga’s opponent before the Odinga people were able to stuff enough ballot boxes, the Muslims made good on their promise and carried out the rampages that eventually got the UN to work out a “compromise” propelling Odinga into shared power. At least a million in US tax money went to Kenya to push a new Constitution on them - one which established sharia, starting in the Muslim areas (which is the way that Islamists have traditionally gotten sharia into whole countries). That was US taxpayer money spent to help Odinga carry out one of his promises in the Memorandum of Understanding he had signed with the Muslims in return for their support (murderous rampaging) to get him into power. IOW, US taxpayers funded that murderous communist-Islamist coup in Kenya, Obama’s most likely birthplace which sealed all records for Obama and unlawfully detained and deported Jerry Corsi when he was in Kenya researching. It’s easily seen how Obama bought Kenya’s silence...
According to top democratic sources for Bettina Viviano, Soros went to both Hillary and Obama in the 2008 primary season and asked if they were on board with his plans to destroy the US economy. Hillary wasn’t but Obama was. And then all of a sudden the people who intended to help Hillary confront the lawlessness of the DNC at the convention started showing up dead just weeks before the convention - one of whom (Bill Gwatney) was a good friend of Bill Clinton and thus effectively threatened him out of revealing Obama’s ineligibility as he and Hillary had been planning to do all along.
There is a book out (by a guy who has written white papers describing our vulnerability to economic terrorism) which suggests that the Sept 2008 run on the bank had long been planned by the Islamists (if I had my act together better I’d have a link for you on that), and right after the run on the bank communists such as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez started saying, “Since capitalism has failed, the world should try communism”. Islamists like Zawahiri and Ahmadinejad were saying, “Since capitalism has failed, the world should try Islamic financing.” The IMF was meeting in Europe to decide what to do now that capitalism had failed.
Ghadaffi was saying that Muslims who had lawfully (only because the contributions were divided into many that were under $200 and thus didn’t have to be reported individually and because the Obama people had deliberately disabled the credit card tracking so the contributions would not be immediately recognizeable as illegal foreign contributions...) contributed to Obama’s campaign and that they were hoping he wouldn’t be too self-conscious after the election to be faithful to his Muslim religion and carry out the agenda the Muslims had supported him to carry out. In January of 2010 Obama felt the need to explain himself to the Muslim world and told the Egyptian ambassador that the Muslim world should be patient with him while he got Obamacare (communism) passed in America because then he would concentrate on the Muslim agenda - which he said he supports because he was and still is a Muslim.
As we all know, Obama was caught on an open microphone telling Medvedev that after the election he would have more “flexibility” in the talks about nuclear disarmament (agreements which the USA honor and which the communist-Islamists all over the world freely lie about, because communism and Islamism are all about lies. They come from the Father of Lies and officially embrace lying as a means for getting power and implementing tyranny).
There is way, way more to be said about the communist-Islamist alliance that is threatening the entire world. The bad thing is that most people refuse to hear it. It won’t fit into 60-second soundbites each hour, even if the MSM WOULD report the actual news (which they won’t, because most are in bed with the communist-Islamist agenda and the one which used to be better - Fox - was first threatened into silence and is now financially in bed with George Soros, the head of the communist-Islamist alliance. See post 62 at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2873887/posts?page=62 ; the last link in that post is about the financial ties with Soros).
Amazon Book Review:
"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu
"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.
It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.
Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.
This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."
Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left -by David Horowitz
Not all dissent is equal, and Americans whose actions are calculated to give aide and comfort to the butchers who murdered 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001 are not patriotic at all... they are, in fact, quite the opposite.

August, 2003: Ward Churchill Caught On Tape Advocating Terrorism [vs Fellow Americans]
Audio link at Michell Malkin's website (included below)
Question from audience:
You mentioned a little bit ago, "Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago," that's my question.
Churchill: I'm gonna repeat that, tell me if I got that right: Why shouldn't we do something and how do you you move so they don't see you coming.
As to the first part, not a reason in the world that I could see. I can't find a single reason that you shouldn't in a principled way there may be some practical considerations, such as do you know how (laughter from audience)
you know, often these things are processes. It's not just an impulse. And certainly it's not just an event.
And the simple answer, although it probably should be more complicated, but I'm not being flip and giving the simple answer, is:
You carry the weapon. That's how they don't see it coming. You're the one...
They talk about "color blind or blind to your color." You said it yourself.
You don't send the Black Liberation Army into Wall Street to conduct an action.
You don't send the American Indian Movement into downtown Seattle to conduct an action.
Who do you send? You. Your beard shaved, your hair cut close, and wearing a banker's suit.
There's probably a whole lot more to it, you know that. But there's where you start. .."
The audio is apparently no longer available -only transcript:
Most definitely true. However, the "Black Muslim" thing here in the US is mostly bs. It's a "Black Liberation" communist front movement as well. Communists are only using the legit islamist fanatics (terrorists) as pawns. Commies despise religion of any kind (except for Marxism). Should the communists ever succeed in gaining world control, their "alliance" with the islamists would rapidly vanish and they would attempt to wipe them out. They'd certainly have the firepower.
