REVEALED: Axelrod’s Links to Pfleger and the Freakshow

Is David Axelrod the Wizard of Oz operating the theatrics of Obama’s looney Trinity United church?

Axelrod, Obama’s media guru and ventriloquist (“Just words!”), is intimately linked to the controversial renegade Catholic priest and Obama “spiritual adviser” Father Michael Pfleger.

Not only has Pfleger been prominently listed on Obama’s official advisory committee, but he also has been recruited by Obama to campaign for him beginning in Iowa and around the country as an official campaign surrogate. Obama has had a 20 year relationship with him, as long as his relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And it’s no surprise that Pfleger is one of Wright’s closest allies and friends–and that both of them are the closest allies and friends of none other than Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Pfleger and Wright are promoters and defenders of the hate-monger Obama consistently and respectfully calls “MInister Farrakhan.” Farrakhan is a big backer of Obama’s candidacy–and has been a supporter throughout his entire political career.

To this day, the press corps, in Chicago and nationally, has not done basic reporting on Obama’s ties to the Nation of Islam despite repeated reports that he has hired members of the hate group for his campaign and Senate Office and that Farrakhan has been one of his most important political props in South Chicago from the start of his political career.

Axelrod, Chicago string-puller and corporate lobbyist, is one of the connections among this motley crew. It turns out that he’s on the fundraising committee for Pfleger’s church. Axelrod obviously has no second thoughts about Pfleger’s flagrant appearances with Farrakhan, who he brings to the church to rail against the evil of white people. And Obama obviously has not even whispered to Axelrod that it might just be a bit inappropriate for his top handler to be so closely associated with anti-Semitic, racist and anti-American hate mongers.

Which, of course, brings us to Obama’s anti-Semitic, racist and anti-American church.

After Rev. Wright’s “God damn America!” festival of hate was exposed, guess who came to dinner? David Axelrod, no doubt with the approval and encouragement of Obama, stepped up to the plate to attempt to rescue the church from its PR disaster. Axelrod arranged the church’s hiring of one of his political allies in Chicago, a political and corporate public relations firm, Jasculca Terman, to guide the church’s image.

Did Axelrod get a commission? How much? How much is the church paying Axelrod’s pals? Nobody has come clean yet. And what does Obama know and when did he know it?

(See “Senior Obama Adviser Asked Top Public Relations Firm To Help Wright’s Church.”)

In effect, the Obama campaign, through Axelrod, has subcontracted image management of the Trinity church to a connected ally. Welcome to Chicago.

Then Father Pfleger mounted the pulpit last Sunday to stage his racist and misogynist minstrel show in white face.

It’s back to the drawing board for Axelrod, Obama & Co.

The Obama freakshow can’t be controlled.

Ready, Democrats?

    You know, if Axelrod is on this priest’s fundraising team, then there’s no way he gave this sermon without permission from the Obama camp. Notice that he quit the advisory committee a couple weeks ago in the lead up to this. Could it be that either, they’re trying to keep Clinton from deciding to run as an independent (on the off chance there will be defections among superdelegates), or they’re trying to deflect attention from something else? (One other possibility is that they did this to denigrate Clinton in the eyes of Puerto Rican voters, who see a Catholic priest on TV publicly repudiating her and think maybe they shouldn’t support here.)

    What is particularly AMAZING in the coverage (bordering on conspiracy, in my view) is the utter embargo on reporting of Obama’s well-documented links to two Iraqi foreign agents, including Saddam’s ex-money-man (according the the Pentagon) AND the former Minister of Electricity in Iraq (now living in Illinois) who’s wanted by Interpol for stealing $650 million in reconstruction funds. How an earth could Obama pass a basic security clearance for employment in federal government when he’s apparently benefitted financially from both of these fellows and has a paper trail with them as wide as the Panama Canal?

    I honestly thing this pastor stuff is a deliberate distraction. And instead of protesting DNC meetings we should all be standing outside the office of the Dept. of Homeland Security demanding that Chertoff open an investigation into Obama’s ties to these two characters. NBC and CNN and all the rest can hardly avoid covering up the facts once that happens.

  • Steve

    Nancy Pelosi and her little leftist clique in House says they are going to unite the party..Now they want to play nice and make love…Hey too little, too late.. I think its time to start petition for resignations of Howard Dean, Donna Brizile.

    Can we start a boycott of CNN, MSNBC, NBC and Newsweek. Start writing to sponsors of their news networks, boycott their products. Our family will organize and push for John McCain if Obami, the closet case is nominated. The extreme left wing has gone off the deep-wing. Look what happened to Conn. when the crazies took over party-Joe Liberman
    want the election..Can we get Clinton to run as an independent?

  • kat in your hat

    Oh, and more:

    Pfleger, known locally as a community activist and organizer, was arrested in June 2007 with the Rev. Jesse Jackson during a protest outside of a south suburban Chicago gun shop. The criminal trespass charges were later dropped.

    He also has hosted Louis Farrakhan, the controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, at St. Sabina and has called him “a gift from God to a sick, sick world.”

    Can someone please tell me the bad news that’s been breaking around Obama for the past several days? I’ve been out-of-town on a business trip and I haven’t been watching the news and didn’t bring my laptop with me (no internet). Today is the first day I’ve logged on since Tuesday.

  • http://Reddragon62.blogspot.com/ RedDragon62

    Yeah it does tell you something. This man has always hated his “white” bloodline. It didnt matter that it was his “White” grandparents that took care of him while Mama was running around the world looking for love. And by the way….I suppose his “White” Mother was good enough to bed but not good enough to stay with? His fathers so-called Shame is Bullshit.. What is sad is that he has thrown away the chance this country actually had to unite. Guess that “White” blood was too much for him to handle.

    My Kids are White/Apache/mexican American and I can tell you this…..THEY ARE PROUD OF THEIR HERITAGE! This man is a disgrace to the human race period!

  • I will Remember in November

    Bottomline, until the white latte liberals break free of their collective white guilt, Obama will be handed the nomination PERIOD. And if the obama to pfeger and wright to farrakah connection does break the hold of white guilt- nothing well. Obama has known wright and pfeger for over twenty years because they have a common connection–resentment and loathing towards “typical white people.”. You know not white people like pfeger and axelrod–”theys gooood” white people who believe whitey is the root of all evil on this earth. Those “typical white people” not so much.

    I never thought i see the day when farrakan was a stones throw away from controlling the most powerful military on the planet! Go figure!

    But really I believe obama is doing all of this to show his father he WAS deserving of his love. His white blood did not “soil” the obama bloodline.He is as pro black (see wright and farrakan and only non typical white people) as any full blooded black even more so. I always wondered why obama would name a book after a man who adandoned him at 2 and he only saw once after that in an airport between flights–”Dreams of my Father”. His white granparents nuture him, feed and clothed him and give him a fine education but yet it was his father he felt compelled glorify. That has to make you wonder, no?

    I believe Sinclair is telling the truth on this..There was a whisper here in Chicago back in 2000, about Obama’s supposed Bisexuality. Although I believe sinclair, I am a realist and I don’t think it will go anywhere unless Sinclair has Iron Clad proof..DNA? All this will do now is give the Obamaphiles a reason to Whine about how much we are grasping at straws.
    As ” I ” have stated above….I believe this story to be true, but without proof, It won’t go anywhere!

  • troll free zone

    You might want to catch up on Larry Sinclair stuff.
    Says he will have a press conference this afternoon.

    You can listen to radio interview from yesterday with Jeff Rense and Larry Sinclair.

    larrysinclair0926.wordpress.com
    5/29/08 interview

    interview mentions driver of limo–Larry’s attorney to give him two weeks to come forward and do affidavit or will go public with identity.

    also attorney for sinclair in talks with Rev. Manning’s attorneys.

    nothing earth shaking, but the beat goes on.

    more harassment from Obama-turds.

    I believe Sinclair. We’ve got murder, drugs and sex.
    All that’s missing is rock and roll.

    As a child I was a target for AA racism on the south soide of Chicago. I am Apache/Mexican American. I went to an ALL black school in Hyde Park. 55th and Cottage Grove. I was BUSED there. I was called every name you can think of.

    Okay….you grow up and get over it, but I never forgot it. neither did my 8 other siblings. I don’t hold the friends I have now to account for this but I HAVE heard them ALL say things like…F-That Honkey! White Bi***! and such. As a matter of fact as soon as you piss one of these racist off, those are the first words that come from their mouths! Now to be fair, not everyone does this, but it has been my experience that this was the case. I know some will say BullS***, but I challenge anyone who has grown up, or still lives in a big city to call me a liar!

    Why is Obama ashamed of his Arabic lineage? Is it because of the history of slave traders on his father’s side of his Arabic family? Or is Obama afraid of what his Arabic lineage might do to his bid for the US Presidency so soon after 9/11?

    Did anyone see Hillary’s interview in 1996 about her book It Takes a Village on c-span last night. It was great! It proved to me once again that Obama is so green. Hillary was talking about the same stuff in 1996. Obama the plagerizer, most of his “new” talking points could have been taken from this interview and book. She could talk about policy and issues for hours. She is incredible, her ideas and knowledge unsurpassed. I was so proud of her watching that interview. All I could think is “she must be our President”. If Obama wins this nomination it will be like the new charsimatic popular “ethnic” guy gets the job over the one ready for the job with more experience, more knowledge, better judgement. The DNC will try to tell Hillary that they couldn’t upset 13% of the country who Obama told it was their time. And Hillary will run anyway! My stepmother a republican and many other republicans, independants and all her ex-democrat supporters will deliver a win in November.

  • M

    As a Republican I never thought I’d say it, but I so wish Hillary would win this primary. And not because I think she is beatable–no, I think she is a far, far, far better choice than Obama, who is extremely inexperienced and dangerously left leaning.

    I may not like Hillary or her politics, but i must admit she would make a far better president than Obama. What the heck happened?

    • Fred C. Dobbs

    • s. hall

      M thank you for that. I wish I knew what happened. This is the first time I can remember where the media pushed so hard for one candidate. If you get a chance take a look at The O’Reilly Factor’s website. I wish I could pull up the video. O’Reilly does a rant against the rest of the media taking down Hillary. It was very moving. If Hillary doesn’t get the nomination I will vote for McCain. He is a good man who loves this country and maybe with millions of Democrats voting for him he will save Social Security and work on a plan to have Healthcare for All Americans. There are some Republicans talking about McCain picking Hillary as VP. God that would be the best news. Ya think???

      What has made me smile in the last few months is that I find myself watching Fox News. Something I have never done before. They are fair and balanced and I believe they are Americans first and Republicans second.

  • Kevin

    I read that this am in Pravda, I mean the boston globe, good article. it’s the hard truth. When I was finishing my degree I was one “diversity” core away from the requirement, the two I had to choose from that fit my schedule were Political Economy of Black America, or Women’s Political Economy. I took the BA one, what an eye opener. According to the prof. and the texts, AAs cannot be racist, and the real kicker was All whites are GENETICALLY RACIST. his case for economic reparations was that even a newly arrived immigrant, say from Ireland or Russia, was just as culpable as Tom Jefferson, George Washington, Robert E. Lee. I being one of three whites in the course, argued at length with him, to no avail. I got along great with my classmates, and some of the AA students would privately agree with my points.
    I wonder if he is BOs econ advisor.

    And another………..

    Via Politico, the Pew Research Center has a new report, available here, finding 49% of white women and 35% of Democratic white women now have a negative perception of Obama. Politico summarizes:

    Forty-nine percent of white women view Obama unfavorably, while only 43 percent hold a favorable opinion. In February, 36 percent of these women viewed Obama unfavorably, while 56 percent had a positive perception of the likely Democratic nominee.

    Over the same period, Democratic white women’s negative view of Obama increased from 21 percent to 35 percent, while their positive view decreased from 72 percent to 60 percent — roughly the same rate as white women overall.

    A bit off topic but interesting just the same….

    Healing the wounds of Democrats’ sexism
    Email|Print|Single Page| Text size – + By Geraldine A. Ferraro
    May 30, 2008
    LAST YEAR at the beginning of the presidential primary season, Democrats were giddy with excitement. Not only did we have an embarrassment of riches in our candidates but we had two historic candidacies to enjoy. Once and for all our country would show that racism and sexism were not part of our 21st-century DNA.

    Here we are at the end of the primary season, and the effects of racism and sexism on the campaign have resulted in a split within the Democratic Party that will not be easy to heal before election day. Perhaps it’s because neither the Barack Obama campaign nor the media seem to understand what is at the heart of the anger on the part of women who feel that Hillary Clinton was treated unfairly because she is a woman or what is fueling the concern of Reagan Democrats for whom sexism isn’t an issue, but reverse racism is.

    The reaction to the questions being raised has been not to listen to the message and try to find out how to deal with the problem, but rather to denigrate the messenger. Sore loser, petty, silly, vengeful are words that have dominated the headlines. But scolding and name calling don’t resolve disputes. The truth is that tens of thousands of women have watched how Clinton has been treated and are not happy. We feel that if society can allow sexism to impact a woman’s candidacy to deny her the presidency, it sends a direct signal that sexism is OK in all of society.

    In response, a group of women – from corporate executives to academics to members of the media – have requested that the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University and others conduct a study, which we will pay for if necessary, to determine three things.

    First, whether either the Clinton or Obama campaign engaged in sexism and racism; second, whether the media treated Clinton fairly or unfairly; and third whether certain members of the media crossed an ethical line when they changed the definition of journalist from reporter and commentator to strategist and promoter of a candidate. And if they did to suggest ethical guidelines which the industry might adopt.

    That sexism impacted Clinton’s campaign, I have no doubt. Did she lose a close election because of sexism? I don’t know. But I do know that it will never happen again as long as women are willing to stand up and make sure that it is just a one-time bad experience.

    As for Reagan Democrats, how Clinton was treated is not their issue. They are more concerned with how they have been treated. Since March, when I was accused of being racist for a statement I made about the influence of blacks on Obama’s historic campaign, people have been stopping me to express a common sentiment: If you’re white you can’t open your mouth without being accused of being racist. They see Obama’s playing the race card throughout the campaign and no one calling him for it as frightening. They’re not upset with Obama because he’s black; they’re upset because they don’t expect to be treated fairly because they’re white. It’s not racism that is driving them, it’s racial resentment. And that is enforced because they don’t believe he understands them and their problems. That when he said in South Carolina after his victory “Our Time Has Come” they believe he is telling them that their time has passed.

    Whom he chooses for his vice president makes no difference to them. That he is pro-choice means little. Learning more about his bio doesn’t do it. They don’t identify with someone who has gone to Columbia and Harvard Law School and is married to a Princeton-Harvard Law graduate. His experience with an educated single mother and being raised by middle class grandparents is not something they can empathize with. They may lack a formal higher education, but they’re not stupid. What they’re waiting for is assurance that an Obama administration won’t leave them behind.

    Hope, change, and inspiration don’t do it. A speech on racism might persuade editorial boards, but to these voters it’s “just words.” Obama has less than six months to make the case.

    Geraldine A. Ferraro, a former vice presidential candidate, resigned from Clinton’s Finance Committee in March.

      Just because I am white doesn’t mean I have to be silent about things I care for. Just because I am white does not mean I do not care for my country. Just because I am white does not exclude me from my constitutional rights. Just because I am white I am just as proud of my heritage and culture as any african is of theirs.

      See, that is where you are wrong. You probably don’t go to church, too hung over from beer bongs and XTC from the night before, I suspect. But America is one the most religious countries on Earth. Most people here consider themselves one religon or another. So they understand and comprehend just how much influence a religous or “spiritual leader” has in a person’s life. For most people, it’s up there with family and country. So when those people with different religous views see Rev. Wright and Fr. Pfleger prance around like nut jobs and spout hate towards whitey, give us your 401Ks, and women are ho’s…well that tends to make even the most unpolitical person sit up and take notice. Besides, if you weren’t worried about Barky and all his fuck ups, you wouldn’t be here. You’d be out doing beer bongs and XTC. And you wouldn’t sound so defensive. That’s the dead give away, honeybuns.

    If a white, hispaic or asian were to have said that, the world would have come to an end! People have become so scared of AA backlash that no-one will call this what it is! Reverse racism! And if you believe that this does not occur, you really need to get out more often. It Has and It does!

    • http://deleted AnninCa

      What’s very sad about this is going to be in the future. There is now a real backlash going on. In the future, voters will be asking some questions about AA candidates that, heretofore, have been considered impolite.

      They will be grilled on their attitudes on this issue.

      People simply aren’t going to tolerate this type of racism. We are not going to live in a country where calling people “whitey” is any more acceptable than using derogatory labels from those of other races.

      That’s just not going to happen.

      One thing that is clear. His numbers were already tanking. This will sink him entirely.
