Gadhafi Tied to “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright

It’s no surprise as to why our President is handling this long time thug & well known terrorist with kid gloves, despite the fact that with the Lockerbie bombing that he ordered & the Libyan attack on a German nightclub frequented by American servicemen, Moammar Gadhafi is responsible for the recent deaths of more Americans then all but al Quida and possibly the Iranian Quds Force, but our sheepish President refuses to even verbally confront him, probably because of Gadhafi’s close ties to Obama’s mentors Rev. Wright & Louis Farrakhan.

I cannot wait for the day in which we have a President who actually likes & respects this country, let’s hope that day is January 20, 2013.

Prez fails to call for dictator’s removal despite reports of attacks on citizens

   By Aaron Klein

JERUSALEM – As pressure mounts on the White House to intervene to stop Moammar Gadhafi’s bloody crackdown in Libya, many commentators have been wondering why Barack Obama has been cautious in his criticism of the dictator after the U.S. president so fervently supported the removal from office of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.

But Gadhafi has been tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual adviser for more than 23 years.

The Libyan dictator also has financed and strongly supported the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. Obama has ties to Farrakhan and his controversial group.

So far, White House officials have called for an end to the violence but have seemingly ruled out any unilateral action in Libya. Despite Gadhafi’s reported ordering of massacres that reportedly have killed hundreds of civilians in recent days, Obama hasn’t called on Gadhafi to leave office.

Pressure has been mounting on Obama to take a tougher stand, with the chairmen of the House and Senate foreign relations committees calling on the White House to re-impose economic sanctions on Libya that were lifted in 2004.

But Obama has multiple close ties to activists who have had relationships with Gadhafi.

Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of Obama’s longtime Chicago church, went with Farrakhan to visit Gadhafi in 1984.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Wright himself noted the trip could cause problems for Obama.

“When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gadhafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”

Farrakhan, a close friend and associate of Wright, has been financed by Gadhafi, including with a $5 million interest-free loan in 1985.

Later that year, Gadhafi spoke by satellite to Farrakhan’s Saviour’s Day Convention in Chicago, and reportedly told Farrakhan supporters he was prepared to provide weapons to a black army in the U.S. to destroy “white America.”

In October 1995, Gadhafi reportedly called Farrakhan with congratulations on the success of the Million Man March. Gadhafi was said to have assured Farrakhan that together “we will unite our capabilities and efforts to achieve this.”

 Moammar Gadhafi

According to reports in 1996 from Libya’s news agency, JANA, Farrakhan and Gadhafi agreed to work together to mobilize “oppressed blacks, Arabs, Muslims and Red Indians” to help reshape U.S. foreign policy.

Gadhafi said that until his alliance with the Nation of Islam, “our confrontation with America was like a fight against a fortress from outside.”

He asserted his alliance with Farrakhan provides him with “a breach to enter into this fortress and confront it.”

Farrakhan went to Libya for multiple other events. He was the recipient in 1996 of the Gadhafi Human Rights Award, which came with a $250,000 prize. Farrakhan accepted the prize despite U.S. sanctions on Libya.

Obama tied to Nation of Islam

Wright and Obama reportedly attended the Million Man March on Washington, which was led by Farrakhan and other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton.

Rev. Willie Barrow, a member of the Obama campaign’s official Faith Outreach Team and an Obama superdelegate, is a close friend of Farrakhan’s and a staunch Nation of Islam supporter.

Farrakhan stated in a 2002 interview he met with Barrow to devise his Nation of Islam platforms.

Marxist activist Cornel West, an adviser to Farrakhan, also had been an adviser to Obama’s 2008 campaign and is a close Obama associate and personal friend.

During the period of Obama’s attendance at Wright’s Trinity United Church, which practices controversial Black Liberation Theology ideology, the Chicago church was openly allied with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Wright gave Farrakhan his 2007 Empowerment Award. Farrakhan delivered multiple guest lectures at the church.

Wright has been involved in Farrakhan initiatives and labeled him “one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st century” during a national address to the media in April at which Nation of Islam officials were invited guests.

Obama has appeared at least three times on the cover of Trumpet magazine, founded by Wright. The magazine, to which Obama last year granted a lengthy, exclusive interview, regularly hails Farrakhan.

Obama’s face was featured on the cover of a 2006 issue of Trumpet alongside Farrakhan’s image.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, a 2004 photo emerged of Obama’s wife, Michelle, posing with Farrakhan and Obama adviser Barrow at a woman’s luncheon for the Rainbow/Push Coalition for which Barrow serves as chairman emeritus.

In the picture with Michelle Obama is Khadijah Farrakhan, Louis Farrakhan’s wife.

Another Obama connection to supporters of Farrakhan comes from David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political strategist.

Although he is Jewish, Axelrod sits on the finance committee of St. Sabina, the Chicago Catholic parish that was led by controversial pastor Michael Pfleger, an outspoken Farrakhan supporter who hosted the Nation of Islam chief at his parish several times.

The Archdiocese of Chicago temporarily removed Pfleger from his duties at St. Sabina in 2008 following a well-publicized guest sermon at Trinity church in which Pfleger claimed Hillary Clinton cried in public because she thought being white entitled her to the Democratic presidential nomination.

Pfleger hosted Farrakhan at his church several times, including one May 2007 sermon that was Farrakhan’s first public appearance since he announced in 2006 he had been suffering from prostate cancer and was seriously ill.

According to reports, Pfleger spent hours with the Nation of Islam chief during his illness. Pfleger previously enlisted Farrakhan’s support for several of his initiatives, including an anti-gun protest in 2007.

    Seems like I heard over the weekend that Obama has spoken about Ghadhafi and said he needs to step down and obey the will of his people and country. But I’m sure you will say he buckled under pressure to do so. No Republican would ever admit that he said it of his own free will.

      “Talk is cheap”

      President Obama can say whatever he wants, but the real question is if he is willing to walk the walk, by committing U.S. aircraft to enforce “no fly zones” or offering some other kind of military support. Ghadhafi is already arming his supporters, unarmed people are being slaughtered and between 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing that killed 2 of our soldiers & wounded nearly 250 people, and the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland that killed more than 250 people, most of them Americans, there is more than enough justification for us to apprehend this guy & try him for genocide & other war crimes, even though his country was not officially “at war” with anyone when these atrocities were committed. The U.S. Navy’s 6th fleet is already near there and they alone have enough fighter jets, cruise missile capability, special forces & other military personnel to accomplish any kind of mission that they are tasked with.

      Just the same, I was wondering where this tough talk & concern about the “will of the people” from the Administration was when Iranian protesters were being murdered in the streets just about a year ago….

    hack, he only “talks” with nothing else. talk is NOTHING without ACTION.
    wonder if he’s getting the hint that a vast MAJORITY of Americans would LOVE it if HE stepped down from his throne?
    ohhhhh wait a minute! then we’d be stuck with biden…………ugh!
    which is the lesser of the two evils? the horror!

    It would ne the latter, although it would never happen…President Obama is way too narcissistic to ever simply step down or forgo a run at another term, and besides, a “President” Joe Biden would have virtually no chance at ever being re-elected, but Obama very well could be if the GOP runs another milquetoast who refuses to attack him on his most vulnerable weaknesses (his core beliefs, his betrayal of our friends & refusal to confront our enemies, his woeful lack of ability to deal with any sudden crisis, his true view of America & it’s place on the global stage, his staunch refusal to even identify Muslim extremists or to secure our border, in addition to the sagging economy that he can no longer blame on his predecessor although he will likely try) for fear of being called “racist”. After all, our nominee will likely be called that anyway just like all his opponents, both Democrat & Republican were in ’08, along with the TEA party, all opponents of “Obamacare” and everyone else who dared speak the truth and dispute any of his empty rhetoric.

    The only possible exception would be if the Republican nominee is Herman Cain, Alan Keyes, J.C. Watts, Thomas Sowell, Ken Blackwell, Allen West or some other Black conservative, in which case they would be called a host of other insulting names.
