Skip to comments.(Clarification:)Obama Attended Hate America Sermon
Posted on 03/17/2008 10:04:03 AM PDT by kellynla
Clarification: The Obama campaign has told members of the press that Senator Obama was not in church on the day cited, July 22, because he had a speech he gave in Miami at 1:30 PM. Our writer, Jim Davis, says he attended several services at Senator Obama's church during the month of July, including July 22. The church holds services three times every Sunday at 7:30 and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central time. While both the early morning and evening service allowed Sen. Obama to attend the service and still give a speech in Miami, Mr. Davis stands by his story that during one of the services he attended during the month of July, Senator Obama was present and sat through the sermon given by Rev. Wright as described in the story. Mr. Davis said Secret Service were also present in the church during Senator Obama's attendance. Mr. Davis' story was first published on Newsmax on August 9, 2007. Shortly before publication, Mr. Davis contacted the press office of Sen. Obama several times for comment about the Senator's attendance and Rev. Wright's comments during his sermon. The Senator's office declined to comment.

If I had tried to get a camera inside that church, I would have been thrown out. I was lucky to smuggle in a little notepad in my pocket. As you might imagine, I have had a lot of phone calls lately. People want me on their radio talk shows and I got a call from one of Bill Kristol’s staff members at the Weekly Standard.
Here are the facts.
The early morning service started at 7:15 AM. It happened as I described it in the Newsmax article. The listing on the church website has the early morning and evening speakers switched around. It was Jeremiah Wright in the morning, not Anthony Burnette. And it was Burnette in the evening, not Wright.
They hustled Obama out the door at 8:15 AM. With a police escort and cross traffic blocked at every stop light, it’s no problem getting to Midway Airport in 20 minutes. The private jet was undoubtedly waiting with engines running. Presidential candidates don’t stand in line at the airport like the rest of us.
The Obama campaign has confirmed that Obama’s plane was wheels up and flying out of Chicago at 8:50 AM. At 550 MPH it’s just over two hours to Miami. Let’s call it three for the sake of argument.
This link confirms that Obama arrived 20 minutes late, at 1:50 PM Miami time (12:50 PM Chicago time).
Do the math, everybody. You have every right to ask these questions. Now I’ve answered them. If that isn’t enough, take a hike.
Not “breaking” but obviously badly bent:
Please read, save, use, post, and email forward this information on (I do not keep or use a massive pinglist of those interested in this or who are active) - The first writer voted for Obama but now says no more.....
Barack “Barry” Hussein Obama Junior and his (former?) Muslim pastor ($700,000 home and a Mercedes!) Jerimiah Wright (and much more):
[Note that FReeper “potlatch’s” animated .gif is prominent at the top of this webpage - but it is not “hotlinked” to this website - It appears democrats surf, read, learn, and appreciate Free Republic - Whatta Shocker!]
Obama writes of Wright’s sermons and anti-white racism and more:
[This writer tells you to look for the perhaps subtle racism of Obama in his book]
All is not happy in the democrat party
“Bring America together - By dividing America”
Some have “seen the light” that Obama says will “make them vote for me” and are not blinded by the “entitled one” on the not so shining hill.....
I’ll just bet that Michelle Obama (4:30am-8:30pm CT - $300,000 salary a year - Are taxpayers funding her time campaigning and on the “trail”?) does not “love the smell of truth in the morning” -
If Obama is lying on this, because he sure isn't providing facts as you are, then you need to go on every talk show you can to relay your story.
They hustled Obama out the door at 8:15 AM. With a police escort and cross traffic blocked at every stop light...
Would the police have records to verify they provided this escort at that time from the church? If you saw Obama with his SS agents then there should be records showing where these SS agents were on the morning in question.
Let's make no mistake about it now, someone is lying here. and you seem to be able and willing to provide some facts, while Obama issues blanket denials with little or no facts. There has to be other people at the church on that morning who saw Obama.
In my mind this is no longer about whether Obama agrees with his pastor, or if he was in attendence at one of Wight's hatefilled sermons. This is about who's lying and the more facts you provide the better because you and I both know this story ends with no one being held accountable unless you can corroborate what you claim to have seen. Obama doesn't have to prove this, you do. So, I say go for it! Thanks for your work.
The early morning service started at 7:15 AM.
So they started 15 minutes early and ended 15 minutes early.... or according to the published bullentins the service was to begin at 7:30 am. Guess this was a special time change to fit Obama’s schedule.
You have a good story but it needs to be documented with something more than your assertions. As far as taking a hike, you can do that as you are on the hot seat with allegations which I hope you can prove.
Thanks for the follow-up and the clarification. You’d think certain FReepers would appreciate your diligence and the fact that you’ve made yourself available to answer these questions. But for them, nothing is ever going to be enough. It’s just not true until the MSM reports it. There’s no getting around that blockade with them, ever.
Oh well. You’ve done your part. And many of us appreciate it.
One of the hardest things is to know something is true but not be able to prove it. Hopefully that proof will happen.
Best watch your back now!
