This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Did Barack Write Dreams of My Father?


My first question is, "does he even know who his father is?" I find it curious that he has oscillated between his blackness and whiteness and has thrown several of each family members under thge bus for one reason or another. I wonder which "father" he was writing about. Anyway, there is growing doubt that Barack was the author of his memoir. I have been reading, listening and watching what comes of this as has many others. Not very many have been writing or even talking about it. However, this is changing. After all, isn't "change" what this election is all about?

In an article written by Charles Krauthammer for the NRO, he talks about the character of Barack Obama. Hell. I have been questioning his character since he became the Golden Child back in 2006. Where have these people been? The guy is from Chicago. The article begins:
Convicted felon Tony Rezko. Unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers. And the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright. It is hard to think of any presidential candidate before Barack Obama sporting associations with three more execrable characters. Yet let the McCain campaign raise the issue, and the mainstream media begin fulminating about dirty campaigning tinged with racism and McCarthyite guilt by association.

But associations are important. They provide a significant insight into character. They are particularly relevant in relation to a potential president as new, unknown, opaque, and self-contained as Obama. With the economy overshadowing everything, it may be too late politically to be raising this issue. But that does not make it, as conventional wisdom holds, in any way illegitimate. [...]
True. The issues are relevant but we are not allowed to talk of such things. After all, it is racist to question his "grayness" because he is neither black or white...he is a hybrid...just like the REST of the American population. He needs to get over that crap. Rich Lowry also has a piece up at NRO as well.
'People were satisfied,” Barack Obama writes in his first memoir, Dreams From My Father, “so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves.”

Such was Obama’s strategy as a high-school student for dealing with white people who might be discomfited by a young black man. In the closing weeks of the campaign, Obama has hewed to this long-ago operating procedure. If “the economy, stupid” was the de facto slogan of Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign, “no sudden moves” could be the motto of Obama’s. [...]
Interesting article to say the least. Just don't make any sudden moves.

Barack is also mixed in with the ACORN crowd of which he has denied any association but there is overwhelming evidence that he has and he has lied about it. What is it with Democrats? Why do they always have to lie about everything? Alas, I digress. Back to the memoir he didn't write - or did - or not.

There are a collection of responses to this issue of the real author of Dreams of My Father over at Memeorandum and I have been reading them all. The primary article listed there is from The Corner, penned by Andy McCarthy.
There has been speculation about this which I've ignored, no doubt because there are enough policy reasons to oppose Barack Obama and I don't want to feed into what sounds, at first blush, like Vince Fosteresque paranoia. But I've finally read Jack Cashill's lengthy analysis in The American Thinker. It is thorough, thoughtful, and alarming — particularly his deconstruction of the text in Obama's memoir and comparison to the themes, sophistication and signature phraseology of Bill Ayers' memoir.

There is nothing in Obama's scant paper trail prior to 1995 that would suggest something as stylish and penetrating as, at times, Dreams from My Father is. And when Obama speaks extemporaneously, one doesn't hear the same voice one encounters in the book. Now maybe Obama has a backlog of writing fom Columbia or Harvard that signal great literary promise, but he not only hasn't shared it, he's assiduously hidden traces of it. And, to be sure, writing is different from speaking — in fairness, some of Obama's off-the-cuff bumbling when he speaks is certainly due to the rigors of the campaign which would cause even the most gifted communicator to faulter from time to time. But it's not unreasonable to expect more similarity between Obama the writer and Obama the orator. [...]
The guy has written TWO memoirs and isn't he too young for all of that? Most folks that have accomplished things in life at least wait until their age reaches elderly status before they write their memoirs. This character Obama is under 50 years old. And, just what exactly has he accomplished? Anything? The answer is, nothing. He hasn't accomplished anything substantial, relevant or news worthy.

We already know what he is so what is the big deal to find out who he is? The "what" explains it all. He is a social engineer, modeled after his Uncle Frank (might be the real Daddy) and Saul Alinsky. Both men were Marxists at worst and socialists at best. Neither dogma can coexist in the same country under a Constitution such as the Constitution of the United States. It really is that simple.

From the American Thinker via Jack Cashill:
Prior to 1990, when Barack Obama contracted to write Dreams From My Father, he had written very close to nothing. Then, five years later, this untested 33 year-old produced what Time Magazine has called -- with a straight face -- "the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician."

The public is asked to believe Obama wrote Dreams From My Father on his own, almost as though he were some sort of literary idiot savant. I do not buy this canard for a minute, not at all. Writing is as much a craft as, say, golf. To put this in perspective, imagine if a friend played a few rounds in the high 90s and then a few years later, without further practice, made the PGA Tour. It doesn't happen. [...]

[...] I bought Bill Ayers' 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days, for reasons unrelated to this project. As I discovered, he writes surprisingly well and very much like "Obama." In fact, my first thought was that the two may have shared the same ghostwriter. Unlike Dreams, however, where the high style is intermittent, Fugitive Days is infused with the authorial voice in every sentence. What is more, when Ayers speaks, even off the cuff, he uses a cadence and vocabulary consistent with his memoir. One does not hear any of Dreams in Obama's casual speech. [...]
Read the rest of the articles linked in this post and you will draw the same conclusion. Barack did not write his "memoir". Call me cynical or anything you want but, knowing what I know having served my nation for decades analyzing people, places and things as well as having nearly memorized the List of 45, Barack Obama is being used as an instrument for the overthrow of the United States government. Do you want an American Civil War Part 2? Either elect or allow to be elected, The One, the Messiah that Farrakhan so declared.

When the crap hits the fan, do not turn to me for help. I will be too busy helping others "that know" and tried to stem the tide and didn't roll over imitating cock roaches in their death dance.
