Here's an email I just received and thought I'd share.....some I've heard before and some I haven't.
Aside from policies we may or may not agree with in the candidates. How much does character weigh in the process of picking your next president?
I don't consider myself a democrat or a republican and I certainly don't want another 4 yrs of the last 8 we just experienced....but on the other hand, I am not going to vote for someone to head our country that has such a questionable background.
With McCain, it's pretty cut and dry. What you see is what you get. He's not unlike most politicians...a flip flop here and there, maybe a bone or two in the closet....
BUT...if I asked myself the questions, "Can I trust this man with the presidency" or " Who is this man"?, they are questions I wouldn't have to ask about McCain...but are constantly popping into my head when I consider Obama running our highest office.
These are a few anti-American's that Barack Obama has had ties with.....as I've said, this is just an email I received. A few ties I've heard about and read to be true....like ACORN, Ayers, and Rev. Wright....the rest I'm going to look further into as to their validity.
1) KHALID AL- MANSOUR:
This man hates America. He hates Israel. In the video he talks about cutting the flesh out of the white man. And says it’s ok! God wants you to do it. This man contacted his rich Arab friends, asking them to write letters to get Obama into Harvard. And asked his rich Arab friends to fund Obama’s education. Now, why would they do that? Watch the video interview with the man that wrote the letter to Harvard on Obama’s behalf.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8npeYfKI_ns
2) RAILA ODINGA:
Odinga claims to be Obama’s cousin.( there is youtube video of him saying that) He forced his way into being the Prime Minister of Kenya. In 2006, Obama went to Kenya to endorse and campaign for Odinga. Odinga promised the Muslim community that he would immediately enact Islamic law in Kenyan Muslim territories, , if they would vote for him. He promised that Kenya would be a safe haven for terrorist. He promised to build court houses in all of Kenya that only recognized sharia law. Kenya is 80% Christian. Odinga lost the election for President. Emails have emerged confirming that Obama was giving campaign advice to Odinga. They had daily phone conversations during that time,. He told him if he lost, to blame voter fraud. And encourage riots. Odinga did, it caused riots where 800 Christian churches were burned. One with 50 Christians still inside hiding. They all died. Here is video of Odinga in a press release stating, that the protest will not stop until I am president. The Kenyan gov. gave in and gave Odinga the Prime Minister spot. Not the presidential spot he was wanting. Thousands of people died because of these riots that Odinga encouraged..THE QUESTION IS : Why is Obama going to Kenya to campaign for this man? Giving campaign advice and endorsing a man that openly said he would enact Islamic law where it didn’t exist before? When asked by Fox News, Obama refused comment. There is supposed to be a story about this on Hannity and Colmes on Monday. Isn’t Obama supposed to be a Christian? When you research this, notice that Odinga and Obama are running on the same CHANGE theme. When you look at Odinga’s website, he say’s the same things that Obama does. Watch this video to the end. Obama’a connections are revealed towards the end.
3) RASHID KHALIDI:
Khalidi is an Arab Palestinian. He is Anti Israel. Used to live in Obama’s neighborhood. The Obama’s and the Khlaidi’s were friends and had many dinners together. Obama said in his book that he had many good conversations and meals at Khalidi’s home. Khalidi was friends with Ayers as well. Khalidi spent many hours at Ayer’s home. The Woods Fund, led by Ayer’s and Obama, gave Khalidi’s, Arab American Action Network (AAAN), A Group Co-Founded By Anti-Israel Columbia University Professor Rhashid Khalidi thousands of dollars. In 2000, Khalidi held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi was a spokesman for Yasser Arafat and a PLO member. When Obama was asked about this man. He said, I know him, because our kids went to the same lab school. He leaves out all the dinners he had at khalidi’s home. And the fundraiser that Khalidi held for him. Watch the videos.
4) ALI ABUNIMAH:
Abunimah Serves On The Board Of Directors For The Arab American Action Network, An Organization With Ties To Rashid Khalidi. Abunimah, said that he met Obama many times in Chicago at Palestinian and Arab community events. In the video interview, he says that Obama seemed sympathetic to the Palestinian cause. Ayer’s and Obama, as board members on the Woods fund, gave $75,000 grant money to this Arab org. How is Obama going to handle conflicts between Israel and the Middle East, when he is donating money to Arab and Palestinian anti Israeli organizations? Obama’s champaign has denied Abunimah’s account of events. Watch Abunimah’s interview.
5) NADHMI AUCHI:
Nadhmi Auchi Is An Iraqi Billionaire With Business And Personal Ties To Convicted Obama Fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko.
Auchi Reportedly Built His Fortune Partly "Through Arms Deals With The Iraqi Regime In The 1980s." "Auchi -- Who Lives In London -- Had Been Convicted Of Fraud In France In 2003. "[Auchi] Helped ‘Arrange For Significant Theft From The U.N. Oil-For-Food Program To Smuggle Weapons And Dual-Use Technology Into Iraq.’" Rezko "Asked Certain Illinois Government Officials" To Help Auchi Obtain A Visa To Visit The U.S. After He Had Previously Been Turned Down By The State Department. According To Rezko Trial Testimony, Obama Attended A Reception For Nadhmi Auchi At The Home Of Tony Rezko April 3, 2004. A Source Told The Chicago Sun-Times That "Obama Not Only Gave Rezko's Guest Of Honor, Iraqi Billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, A Big Welcome … But He Made A Few Toasts!". When asked, OBAMA said"I have no specific recollection. [Auchi and Alsammarae] may have been there. I can't say unequivocally that I did not meet them, but I just don't recall." (Sen. Barack Obama, Interview With The Chicago Sun-Times, www.suntimes.com, 3/15/08)
6) TONY REZKO:
Rezko Was Convicted Of Wire And Mail Fraud, Money Laundering, And Aiding And Abetting Bribery. "Antoin ‘Tony' Rezko And Stuart Levine Used Rezko's Influence With Public Officials To Sustain Their Scheme To Collect Kickbacks From Firms That Wanted State Business, Prosecutors Charged.

Obama Has Referred To Rezko As A "Friend" Who He Called For Advice On The Purchase Of His Home. Obama On The Rezko Verdict: "This Isn't The Tony Rezko I Knew…" ("Jury Convicts Rezko," Chicago Tribune, 6/5/08)
7) WILLIAM AYER’S:
"[W]illiam Ayers … [Was] A Founding Member Of The Group That Bombed The U.S. Capitol And The Pentagon During The 1970s. In 2001, Ayers Did Not Express Regret For His Past Conduct And Even Claimed The Weather Underground "Didn't Do Enough" Bombings. "Ayers And Obama Guided CAC Money To Community Organizers, Like ACORN (The Association Of Community Organizations For Reform Now) And The Developing Communities Project (Part Of The Gamaliel Foundation Network), Groups Self-Consciously Working In The Radical Tradition Of Saul Alinsky. "The Chicago Annenberg Challenge Stands As Barack Obama's Most Important Executive Experience To Date. By Its Own Account, CAC Was A Largely A Failure. Obama Chief Strategist David Axelrod: "Bill Ayers lives in his neighborhood. Their kids attend the same school … They're certainly friendly, they know each other, as anyone whose kids go to school together." (Ben Smith, "Ax On Ayers," The Politico's "Ben Smith" Blog, www.politico.com, 2/26/08).
NOTE: Obama didn’t have any kids in 1995 When he went to a fundraiser in his honor at Ayer’s home. Ayer’s children are grown. Obama’s kid’s are 6 and 9. Impossible for them to go to school together. Obama clearly lied about his associations to Ayer’s. watch video and read further.
"In 1992, Acorn Hired Mr. Obama To Run A Voter Registration Effort. He Later Became A Trainer For The Group, As Well As Its Lawyer In Election Law Cases." "Representing The Association Of Community Organizations For Reform Now (ACORN), Obama And Other Attorneys Sued The State Of Illinois, Forcing It To Implement Federal "Motor Voter" Legislation That Makes It Easier For The Poor And Minorities To Register To Vote."
The Chicago ACORN Received Grants Of $45,000 (2000), $30,000 (2001), $45,000 (2001), $30,000 (2002), And $40,000 (2002) From The Woods Fund. NOTE: From 1993 To 2002, Barack Obama Served On The Board Of Directors For The Woods Fund. Obama was one of many attorney’s to file suit against Citibank in 1994. To force banks to give loans to low income borrowers. This practice of lending to people that can’t pay it back, is what has crashed our economy. And Obama played a big roll in that process.
9) LOUIS FARRAKHAN: Is the leader of The Nation of Islam.
In this video, he’s telling a crowd of youth that Obama is the Messiah.
10) Rev. Wright
