Skip to comments.Should Bill Ayers (Obama confident) be tried for his crimes as a fugitive...

From the FBI file on the Weather Underground Foreign Influence documents (see FBI document (420 pages) on Weatherman Underground -- http://foia.fbi.gov/foiaindex/weather.htm).
On this webpage, the FBI states that the Weatherman (or Weather Undergound) was an organization [that] described itself as a revolutionary organization of communist men and women.
In point of fact, the Weather Underground (WUO) was a terrorist organization very sympathic to North Vietnam and Cuba during the Vietnam War.
The Weathermen were responsible for a number of bombings in the United States, and Bill Ayers was one of the key leaders of this organization.
His own girlfriend died in one of the bombings -- though it was a case of the bomb exploded in a weatherman hideout probably as it was being prepared. This particular bombing was meant to kill members of the US Military at an NCO Dance club, but instead killed members of the Weather Underground.
The FBI Documents (PDF files) mention the foreign influence on the Weatherman Organization.
Additionally, Bill Ayers was a fugitive in the 1970s such that he had his original name plus the following aliases -- according to FBI documents:
WILLIAM CHARLES AYERS, aka
Michael Joseph Raffery, Jr.
Jules Michael Taylor.
I believe it is clear that Bill Ayers could have been charged with treason, and since he helped formed the Weather Underground, he may have a responsibility in a number of bombings.
He also did recruiting for the Vanceremos Brigade, a group to help Communist Cuba.
It is unclear the number of possible charges that this person might be charged with that the statue of limitations may not have run out on.
He is an important aspect of the political life of Barrack Obama, as Obama started his political life from the home of Bill Ayers.
Another source of information on Bill Ayers is the Wikipedia link:
Bill Ayers WikiPedia link -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Ayers
I am curious how many possible crimes [that the statue of limitations have run out] and the number of possible crimes [that the statue of limitations have not run out] that this important person in the Obama Campaign could be charged with?
I wish I could have said it as well as you just did!
Guilt by association?
This guy should be dealt with off line by some real patriots.
In 1958, in the case of Kent v. Dulles dealing with the travel of Americans to communist countries during the Cold War, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the right to travel is an inherent element of liberty that the government can regulate but cannot abridge in terms of U.S. constitutional rights. A few years later, because of the Castro regimes ties to the Soviet Union, the Kennedy administration announced a total embargo on trade with Cuba. As a result, travel became regulated by the Department of Treasury as the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued a set of prohibitions which effectively banned travel by prohibiting any financial transactions with Cuba.
Throughout the 1960s and 70s, however, many citizens, especially students, resisted the ban by traveling to Cuba. Notably, since 1969, the Venceremos (We Shall Overcome) Brigade has sent several thousand United States citizens to Cuba to participate in work projects as an act of solidarity with Cuba and of resistance to the United States government. When President Carter lifted the travel ban in 1977 by issuing a general license for travel-related transactions for those visiting Cuba, Guild, at the front of the Cuba travel industry, sent the first unrestricted group to the island.
After a decade, when the embargo had not produced the hardline Cuban exile communitys desired effect on the Castro regime, terrorist organizations such as Omega 7 and CORU were formed. These terrorist groups attempted to frighten travelers and cripple the Cuba travel and tourism industry by placing bombs and carrying out assassinations of travel advocates. In the late 1970s, Omega 7, a terrorist organization founded in the U.S. by veterans of the Bay of Pigs invasion, assassinated Eulalio Jose Negrin, a Cuban activist in Union City, New Jersey and Felix Garcia Rodriguez, a Cuban diplomat assigned to the Cuban Mission to the United Nations.
Since 1969, thousands of Americans have resisted U.S. policy on travel to Cuba by joining the efforts of the Venceremos Brigade
Bombings directed at those who advocated travel between the U.S. and Cuba took place throughout the 1970s and 80s. Former CIA operatives, including Orlando Bosch, founded the CORU terrorist organization, which soon became involved in more than 50 bombings. These acts included the bombing of the Miami International Airport in 1975 (later attributed to Bay of Pigs veteran Rolando Otero Hernandez) and the bombing of a Cubana Airlines flight.

Flashback to 1987
Mayor aided murderer Menendez glad to help an 'innocent man'
Wednesday, October 7, 1987
By Douglas Lavin
UNION CITY Mayor Robert Menendez has contributed funds for a convicted Cuban-American terrorist and murderer who was the kingpin of Omega 7.
Menendez, the city's first Cuban-American mayor, said he supports the use of violence and breaking the rule of law in the fight for a free Cuba, but also said his contribution made at a Friday fund-raiser was intended only to supply Eduardo Arocena with legal counsel.
"I endorse the fact that there are times when what one looks at as a law at a given time has to be broken," Menendez said, adding that the fight should be carried out "wherever the enemy may be."
Bernard F. Kenny, Menendez's Democratic running mate in the Assembly race to represent North Hudson's 33rd District, also was at the dinner, but said yesterday he did not know the event was a fundraiser or was linked to terrorists.
Kenny said public officials have an obligation to uphold the law.
"I think any public official has to take a strong stance on that," he said.
Jose O. Arango, the Cuban-born Republican assemblyman who is opposing Menendez and Kenny, said he would contribute to Arocena's legal defense if asked. Arango said he did not endorse illegal activity in the United State, but said he would contribute money to help ensure "an innocent man is not convicted."
Menendez took a similar stance and said Arocena needed a new trial because he did not have proper legal counsel during his trial.
Micahel L. Tabak, the asssitant U.S. attorney who was in charge of the prosecution, siad Arocena rejected a free, court appointed attorney from own of Manhattan's best law firms and instead chose two of his own attorneys, who represented him during the trial.
"The record is clear that Arocena was represented by counsel," Tabak said.
Arocena, a former New Jersey longshoreman, was convicted in 1984 of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy bombings and perjury.
In December 1985, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan denied an appeal, calling the government's case, which included 85 witnesses and "copius" physical evidence, "overwhelming and impressive."
The court also called Arocena the "kingpin" of Omega 7 and said the group financed its crimes of bombings and murder through drug trade and extortion.
Since 1973, Omega 7 has claimed responsibility for more that 30 terror bombings in New York, New Jersey and Miami. The bombings have targeted such groups as a pharmacy in Union City that sent medicine to Cuba and local travel agencies that booked flights for Cuban emigres to return to Cuba to visit their families.
Arocena was found guilty in November 1984 of 25 of 26 counts. He was convicted of organizing the murder of a Cuban attache in Queens and arranging bombings at Cuban, Soviet, Venezuelan, Mexican, and Nicaraguan missions in New York and Miami as well as at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan and John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens.
Menendez said that as a public official he has an obligation to uphold the law here, but that he also has a responsibility "to listen to the people, if it is their belief collectively that this is a good man."
"I don't look at it that I am supporting 'a murderer,'" Menendez said, "I look on it that I am supporting a goal, which is the liberation of Cuba."
Menendez and Obama have a lot in common, including questions as to where and when they were actually born.
Menendez even has his hands in voter fraud, just like Obama - 1997.
I am listening. I ***RARELY** hear the word communist coming from Rush. Yes, he does point out Obama’s association with Ayers, but there is much more to this problem of communism in the U.S. than puny little Ayers!
COMMUNISM IN THE U.S. IS A MUCH MUCH MUCH **BIGGER** PROBLEM THAN AYERS!!!!!!!!
Communists are thoroughly entrenched in every government agency, our schools, the arts, and all social welfare agencies. They are even in our legislatures!
Rush is the biggest fat weenie of the all! And,...I say this because he is the smartest and I **KNOW** that he understands the problem and the significance!
What a COWARD!!!!!
Geeze! That's an understatement for sure!
You're welcome. Please forward the link to the page to others.
Did you see this one on Davis? Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis wrote shocking, autobiographical pornography
Yes, saw it for the first time a day or so ago. Thanks. And speaking of such things...
New York Times, September 11, 2001:
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."

"when I was getting ready to leave [Bill] Ayers told me I couldnt go until I slept with his roommate and his brother. At this point Bill and I had slept together just once. I was sexually inexperienced, having had only one serious boyfriend with whom I had recently broken up. At first I thought Ayers was joking. I got up; and went to the door. He moved quickly to block me at the doorway. He locked the door and put the chain on it. I went to the couch and sat down and told him that I had no intention of having sex with his roommate and his brother or him. He said that I had no choice but to do as he said if I wanted to get out of there. He claimed that I wouldnt sleep with his married roommate because he was black -- that I was a bigot. I got up from the couch and walked over to the black roommates bed and put myself on it and he ****** me. I went totally out of my body. I floated beside myself on the outside and above the bed looking at this black stranger **** me angrily while I hated myself."

[WARNING: 'F' word used at link]
And...It is the Communists in the California legislature who want to do this.
It is time we called these people what that are: COMMUNISTS!
They are not “liberal”. They are not “leftist”, or “progressive”. They are and always have been COMMUNISTS!
I know that Rush Limbaugh has this figured out. He is just too much of a weenie to call these people by their true name.
That might explain why Biden said that he and Obama both had AIDS tests.
Geeze! That's an understatement for sure!
Thanks, but I actually wrote "none of the popular conservative talk show hosts are doing a very good job of it." (verifying and exposing the communist connections to the demonRat party)
VoterMarch, nobloodforoil.org, ACORN, Direct Action Network, RiseUp, Stonewall....
Money laundering through Pornography Rings.
Ironic. Ayers is PROTECTED by a system which he would totally destroy, and did his darndest to, in fact.
“We didn’t do enough”, he said ...
Mark Levin calls Barack HUSSEIN “Milhous” Obama what he
is: a MARXIST !
“There, I said it!!!”
But it isn't at all clear in most Americans' minds that the Weather Underground were in fact communist revolutionaries. The MSM certainly doesn't say it (not then, not now), and neither does Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly or anyone else on FoxNews. Hannity merely refers to them as "domestic terrorists". That is all he ever says about them, aside from the fact that they bombed the Pentagon, U.S. Capitol and New York City police headquarters. Same thing with Reverend Wright and his Black Liberation Theology. Yet the Weather Underground were actually allied with the Black Liberation Movement in an attempted communist overthrow of the U.S. government! Talk about failing to make the connections! Wake up already Sean Hannity!!!
“none of the popular conservative talk show hosts are doing a very good job of it.”
Yes, you did write *none*, and I wholeheartedly agree.
Rush steams me the most.
The clock is NOT my friend. :(
Gotta hit the road, Jack.
Good point. There's much more on this topic at my FR Home page.
Rush, Hannity, OReilly, Ingram they are failing to make the connection! Geeze! How hard should this be? Huh?
Also, there is **far** more to the problem of communism in the U.S. than Ayers! There are Marxists thoroughly entrenched in every social institution of the U.S. except the military! In the meantime cowardly Rush continues to call them “leftists”. Wow! I am so unimpressed!
