Obama's Jane Fonda (A Must Read for All Active Duty, Veterans and Military Families)
Friday, October 31, 2008 | Kristinn Taylor

Posted on 10/31/2008 5:04:39 AM PDT by kristinn

When challenged on his radical, anti-American associates, Barack Obama responds by saying they are in his past and not a part of his campaign. He's correct on that, and that explains why some give him a pass on his past.

However, there is one anti-American he has not thrown under the bus who is very much a part of his campaign--and has been from the very beginning. Obama's alliance with this person makes sense of his past association with Bill Ayers as this person is Ayers' ideological twin.

If you are currently in the service, a veteran or military family member, Obama's alliance with this person should be of the utmost concern to you. This person has worked to get our soldiers killed in Iraq by giving aid and comfort to our enemies in Iraq. They also work with state sponsors of terrorism and other leftist anti-American governments. The Obama campaign knows this--and they find this perfectly acceptable.

This person is Barack Obama's Jane Fonda. In fact she is friends with Jane Fonda.

Drawing perhaps the most fire is Code Pink’s support for the Iraqi insurgency that has killed more than 3,700 American soldiers and wounded nearly 30,000 since since post-combat operations began there in May of 2003.

The group’s co-founder, Jody (sic) Evans, was an international observer at the World Tribunal on Iraq in June 2005. The Tribunal culminated in a statement signed by ativists (sic) from 10 countries that characterized the insurgency as “legitimate and justified” and called for war crimes charges against Bush and other world leaders who backed the U.S. invasion.
Washington City Paper, January 9, 2008

Well-known politico and Code Pink radical activist Jodie Evans — an Obama bundler along with her ex-husband, longtime Democrat supporter Max Palevsky — was initially a bit hesitant to join the Senator’s fundraising effort. But Evans says she’s been surprised by the way the candidate and his team have “honored” donors with plenty of face time, great food and other tokens of personal care and attention.
Politico October, 22, 2008

Obama’s bundlers help make up a more loosely defined “national finance committee,” whose members are made to feel part of the campaign’s inner workings through weekly conference calls and quarterly meetings at which they quiz the candidate or his strategists. At one meeting, bundlers urged the campaign to link Iraq war costs with the faltering economy. And they got an advance copy of Obama’s Philadelphia speech in which he addressed the incendiary remarks of his longtime pastor.

Obama policy advisers also meet with bundlers and other top givers.
The Washington Post, April 11, 2008

Some might suspect that tax resistance is symbolic and futile. But we want to purposely put a cog in the machine of war tax collection. We believe it will lead to a deepening of opposition as tens of thousands of people say, “I can no longer in good conscience pay for these acts by my government.” Mass war tax resistance, on the scale proposed, has never been done in the U.S.

The tradition of civil disobedience involves breaking a law in favor of a higher law. It is a statement of non-cooperation with illegitimate authority...

The world and history will judge us by how vigorously we resist the illegal and immoral war tactics of the Bush Administration. One start is to stopping paying for Bush’s war.
Jodie Evans, Huffington Post, December 14, 2007

An agent of influence is a well-placed, trusted contact who actively and consciously serves a foreign interest or foreign intelligence services on some matters while retaining his integrity on others. Agent of influence might also refer to an unwitting contact that is manipulated to take actions that advanced interests on specific issues of common concern.

Foreign intelligence agencies take people who tend to agree with their positions on at least one significant issue, such as opposition to some element of a nation’s foreign policy, and then seeks ways to motivate and help that person become a successful advocate on that issue within their own circle of influence.

The ultimate prize of an intelligence agency is to have someone sympathetic to their own goals and ambitions in a position of power in an opposing organisation or country.

A founding member of the campaign finance team of Democratic presidential nominee Illinois Sen. Barack Obama has been acting as an agent of influence for state sponsors of terrorism to undermine the United States in the global war on terror since at least February, 2003.

Jodie Evans, co-founder of the leftist anti-American group Code Pink, has documented ties to governments on the State Department’s list of current and former state sponsors of terrorism including Iran, Cuba, Syria and the former Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein. She also has endorsed and worked with the so-called Iraqi resistance that has killed over three thousand American soldiers and thousands of free Iraqis. She has worked to deliberately prolong the war by encouraging the terrorists to stay in the fight while she and her allies in the Democratic party leadership undermine morale back home. It can safely be said that Jodie Evans is working to get the sons of John McCain, Sarah Palin and Joe Biden killed by our enemies in Iraq.

Evans is listed on the official Obama website as a bundler of between $50,000 and $100,000 in contributions. According to FEC reports, the official Obama website and news accounts, Evans has personally contributed over $40,000 to the Obama campaign—$4600 to Obama for America and around $36,000 to the Obama Victory Fund.

Evans served as a co-host for Obama’s first Hollywood fundraiser right after he announced his long-shot bid for the presidency in February 2007, just weeks after she returned from Cuba where she and Code Pink worked with the Castro government to protest the terrorist detention center in Guantanamo. Evans and Code Pink, who market themselves as feminists and human rights activists, blew off the Ladies in White, a Cuban human rights group that asked the delegation Evans led to inspect Cuban prisons where democracy advocates were being held by the Castro government.

The propaganda effort against the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo garnered worldwide sympathetic media coverage that undermined America’s efforts in the war on terror.

Evans and Code Pink’s trip to Cuba in January 2007 made up for their aborted effort to visit the communist nation the year before to celebrate the anniversary of Fidel Castro’s violent revolution.

In February, 2003, Evans traveled with Code Pink to Baghdad as a guest of Saddam Hussein’s government to lobby the world to keep him in power. Saddam’s government made a lasting impression on Evans. As late as summer 2008 she was still wishing that the genocidal, mass murdering tyrant was still in power in Iraq. She made a similar statement in 2006 pining for the ‘good old days’ under Saddam:

Let’s go back to the Iraq before we invaded, there was a good education and health care system, food for everyone. That system didn’t belong to Saddam it belonged to the Iraqi, it belonged to years of creating what a civilization needed. If your parents didn’t send you to school they could be put in jail.

Evans made several trips to Iraq in 2003 after the liberation. She worked with anti-liberation Iraqis to set up Occupation Watch in Baghdad. The purpose was to propagandize alleged war crimes by American soldiers and to recruit American soldiers into quitting the war by becoming conscientious objectors.

Evans did a propaganda interview with a communist newspaper in August, 2003, accusing G.I.s of wantonly slaughtering Iraqi women and children.

In December 2004, as the Marines were clearing out Fallujah from al Qaeda and Iraqi Sunni terrorists, Evans and Code Pink delivered over $600,000 in cash and humanitarian aid for what Code Pink called ”the other side” in Fallujah.

In June, 2005, Evans represented Code Pink at the World Tribunal on Iraq, a leftist-jihadist show trial held in Istanbul, Turkey, that proclaimed the ‘right’ of the terrorists in Iraq to kill Americans and free Iraqis:

There is widespread opposition to the occupation. Political, social, and civil resistance through peaceful means is subjected to repression by the occupying forces. It is the occupation and its brutality that has provoked a strong armed resistance and certain acts of desperation. By the principles embodied in the UN Charter and in international law, the popular national resistance to the occupation is legitimate and justified. It deserves the support of people everywhere who care for justice and freedom.

Evans herself gushed about her support for the so-called Iraqi resistance in an essay written in Istanbul:

”We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. The Iraqi people are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies.” (AlterNet, June 26, 2005)

In January, 2006, Evans traveled to Venezuela with Code Pink where she met with Hugo Chavez and protested against President Bush.

In April, 2006, Evans led a delegation to Iran. Blog entries by her and her fellow travelers are filled with propaganda designed to undermine U.S. policy againt the state sponsor of terrorism.

In the summer of 2006, Evans and Code Pink traveled to Jordan and Syria. She and Code Pink wrote extensively about the Jordan visit, where they met with pro-terrorist Iraqi parliamentarians who urged them to seek recognition of the so-called Iraqi resistance.

The stop in Syria is clouded in mystery as none of the Code Pink members have written about what they did and who they met in Syria, except here:

From Damascus to Beirut: Arriving, Safely
By Medea Benjamin

Four of us—Gael Murphy, Judith LeBlanc, Diane Wilson and myself—split off from the rest of the group in Syria to make our way to Lebanon.

As noted at the beginning of this article, Evans traveled to Cuba in January 2007 to undermine America, then just weeks later she co-hosted Barack Obama’s first big Hollywood fundraiser.

In November, 2007, when Obama announced his campaign bundlers, Evans was on the list, as well as her husband Max Palevsky.

Evans got more involved in supporting Obama’s candidacy in 2008. In February she hosted a support Obama event and published an endorsement of Obama co-signed by several New York feminists.

On June 4, 2008, Evans was interviewed by radio talk show host Paul A. Ibbeston (Part One on YouTube and Part Two on YouTube.)

In the interview, Evans expressed her sympathy for the Sept. 11 terror attacks by al Qaeda that led to the murder of 3000 innocents, mostly her fellow Americans:

Jodie Evans:...”We were attacked because we were in Saudi Arabia, that was the message of Osama, was that because we had our bases in the Middle East, he attacked the United States.”

Paul A. Ibbetson: “Do you think that’s a valid argument?”

Evans: “Sure. Why do we have bases in the Middle East? We totally violated the rights of that country. Why do we get to have bases in the Middle East?”

Evans also expressed her love for the anti-American leader of Venezuala, Hugo Chavez, calling him a “sweetheart”, and admitted that Code Pink is trying to “undermine the war effort” of the United States in the war on terror.

Several weeks after that interview, Obama received Evans at a high-dollar fundraiser. Evans is listed by the FEC has having made a $7250 contribution to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising vehicle of Obama’s presidential committee, Obama for America, and the Democratic National Committee. The legal limit, $2300 of Evans’ contribution, was given to Obama’s general election coffers as she had already given the maximum allowed by law to his primary campaign, also $2300, at the Hollywood fundraiser she co-hosted in February, 2007. The balance of the $7250 went to the DNC.

Days after the event, a video was published featuring Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin bragging about Evans’ meeting with Obama.

In July, 2008, Evans joined other leftists in signing a letter urging Obama to keep left in his campaign that was published by The Nation.

In July, Evans’ Code Pink partner in treason, Medea Benjamin, traveled to Bolivia where she met that country’s anti-American President Evo Morales and a top Castro operative. Just weeks later, Morales triggered a diplomatic crisis with the United States.

Benjamin wrote about her meeting on a Code Pink blog on July 26:

The evening was another spectacular opportunity. How often does one get to meet the president the first night in the country??? It so happened that Saturday night was the opening of a new documentary on the life of President Evo Morales. Since the filmmaker was Cuban—Jorge Fuentes—the opening was hosted by the Cuban Ambassador to Bolivia, Rafael Dauså, who I had known when he was stationed at the Cuban Interest Section in Washington and when he visited us at Global Exchange in San Francisco. So I was invited to the opening and stood with the ambassador and his wife as they warmly greeted hundreds of other guests....

Then the President, Evo Morales, and Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera drove up. The crowd on the street cheered when Evo emerged from the car, and with little fanfare and minimum security, he greeted the crowd and took his seat in the front row of the theatre. What a thrill it was when I was also escorted to the front row to sit with the dignitaries! A far cry from the U.S.—I thought—where I am so often treated like some kind of dangerous terrorist.

In August, Evans’ success at infiltrating the Democratic party was recognized with her being given the ”Inside the Party” award by the Progressive Democrats of America, a group founded in 2004 at the Boston Democratic national convention to pull the party further to the left. Evans is known by her fellow leftists as a master of the ‘inside-outside game’.

Later that month, Evans attended the Democrats’ national convention in Denver. While Code Pink did their usual street theater outside the convention, they did not disrupt the convention inside. That is most likely because as a bundler for Obama, Evans was invited to private meetings with Obama and his vice presidential nominee Delaware Sen. Joe Biden after their respective acceptance speeches. From the National Journal:

After Biden’s speech on Wednesday night, bundlers are invited to an hour-long reception with the vice presidential candidate in a private room in the Pepsi Center, and then on Thursday morning, Barack and Michelle Obama are hosting a breakfast at the Hyatt Regency. After Obama’s acceptance speech, he is scheduled to mingle with bundlers at a private lounge inside Invesco Field.

The next week, at the Republicans’ national convention in St. Paul, Evans made headlines by trying to storm the stage during the acceptance speech by Republican vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Evans spent her time in St. Paul committing identity theft to gain access to the convention and related events.

Less than two weeks later, Evans was again received by Obama, this time at an intimate $28,500 per person fundraiser in Hollywood and again later that evening at a $2500 per person fundraiser that featured a performance by Barbra Streisand.

Evans capped off her month by meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in New York City. Ahmadinejad’s government has been funding, training and arming terrorists in Iraq who have killed American soldiers and free Iraqis, as well as Hezbollah in its war against Israel, among many other activities that threaten the free world including seeking nuclear weapons.

Evans, who is no fool but is a propagandist, told Fox News after meeting Ahmadinejad that he is “really about peace and human rights and respecting justice.”

Ahmadinejad is also no fool. He would know that Jodie Evans, who visited his country in 2006, is in tight with the Democratic party’s presidential nominee and that Obama has stated his willingness to meet with Ahmadinejad while downplaying the danger of Iran to the free world.

The specter of an agent of influence for state sponsors of terrorism and the terrorists in Iraq operating this closely with the Democratic party’s presidential nominee is extremely troubling for our nation.

Very few questions have been raised by the media about this. Evans initially brushed off the few queries about her relationship with the Obama campaign by saying her husband, Max Palevsky, is an old friend of Obama’s from Chicago and she’s just along for the ride. The evidence belies that story. Evans is a player in her own right.

However, as election day draws nearer and Obama continues to lead in the polls, Evans is more confident in speaking out about her close relationship with the Obama campaign:

Well-known politico and Code Pink radical activist Jodie Evans — an Obama bundler along with her ex-husband, longtime Democrat supporter Max Palevsky — was initially a bit hesitant to join the Senator’s fundraising effort. But Evans says she’s been surprised by the way the candidate and his team have “honored” donors with plenty of face time, great food and other tokens of personal care and attention.
Politico, October, 22, 2008

In another sign of Evans’ deepening relationship with the Obama campaign, Evans and Code Pink are organizing get out the vote efforts with the Obama campaign, raising questions of illegal coordination between the tax-emempt group and the campaign.

There have been several calls from troop support groups for Obama to renounce Evans. He has ignored them and instead has drawn closer politically to Evans as the campaign has gone on.

Obama said this summer he knows he needs to earn the trust to be commander-in-chief. He has failed to earn that trust, completely, by allying with an agent of influence for state sponsors of terrorism, Jodie Evans.

While true, I don’t think there’s time before Tuesday to have this sink in. Just an opinion.

I think the best hammer at this point is a combination of Biden’s promising an international crisis, high tax promises by Obama, and the promise to redistribute wealth.

The country is going into the dark ages because of the above trio, and if anyone thinks the international crisis part isn’t important, then they weren’t reading the change in polls correctly. Those were the big 3 issues, and now everyone’s leaving off the international crisis threat made by a very sinister sounding Biden.

It's all in the past. He's changed. We shouldn't hold what happened long ago against him. Maybe we should run G. G. Liddy for office and see what kind of historical amnesia the media has.

Our Pastor was by yesterday. He was talking about his brother who was a missionary in Venezuela at one time. He is in Ecuador now. But, they left Venezuela in the dark of night. Chavez said that ALL male babies born after a certain date would have Chavez's name on the birth certificate AS HIM LISTED AS THE FATHER OF THE CHILD! That was ALL children born in the country. NONE of the children would be allowed to leave the country. So, they were expecting a child, and they told their church they wanted to get out of there before the child was born. So the church told them there was a big meeting coming up, to use that as their excuse to be leaving for that meeting, pack heavy, take what you can, and get out. That is what they did. Now his brother is in a mountain area of Ecuador doing his mission work. So, good ole Chavez is daddy to all males born in that country. Sounds like North Korea.

Great point CrazyIvan. I don’t think they would feel the same way about Liddy.

a. Father Michael Pfleger
b. Reverend Jeremiah Wright
c. Minister Louis Farrakhan

Thanks for the ping. Code Pink has supported Obama from the beginning.

I’m not surprised that Chavez has decreed himself the father. That is what Hitler did.
