Ray McInerny, Sr., and his wife Jean, have lived in New Berlin for 32 years. A retired graphic artist, he now paints for his own enjoyment. This blog will attempt to present items of general interest to his New Berlin neighbors.
The Liberal scheme of things poltical uses the old Alinsky tactic of repeat, repeat, repeat. Their hope is that the most gullible will believe these distortions, and repeat them again.
In the latest assault on Romney a member of Obama's staff said Romeny is a felon centers around Romney's position at Bain Capital during the1999-2001 period. Romney and Bain are made out to be those awful evil corporate people who outsourced jobs overseas and, for Romney for investing abroad.
Absent from their adolation of the President is the 'fact' that Obama's once-powerful fund-raiser, Antoin Rezko, (guilty of 16 of 24 felony counts in 2008) helped propel Obama's career in politics and just happend to help the Obama's into a pricey home in a ritzy Chicago neighborhood.
When Obama ran for the Illinois Senate his earliest supporter was Rezko. In 2003, when Obama began the run for U.S. Senate in Illinois, Rezko was a member of his campaign finance committee. Shortly after becoming a U.S. Senator Obama and Rezko's wife, Rita, bought adjacent pieces of property in Chicago's Kenwood district. Obama paid $1.65 million for his piece ($300,00 below asking price) while Rita buys the adjacent lot for $625,000 and then later sells it to Obama for $104,500. Ah, those evil rich people Obama rants about are so helpful when needed.
Plus, his association with Bill Ayers and wife, Bernadine Dorne, both felons who are safely enscounced in higher education positions in the Chicago area illustrate quite clearly the type of associations he chose to be in league with.
As the apologists continue the rant on Romney concerning his tenure at Bain Capital they ignore, or don't know the fact that Obama took all the cash he could from Bain Partners who were prone to finance his campaign. The young Robin Hood again taps into the filthy rich.
During this same period Barack Obama got money from Joshua Bekenstein, a managing director of Bain since 1986 who gave close to $5,000 to Obama and $50,000 to the DNC. Sephen Pagliuca of Bain dropped a little more than $35,000 on Obama's Victory Fund in 2011, and more than $30,000 to the DNC and the like amount to the DCCC. Mark Nunnelly, Jonathn Lavine and Michael Krupka came up with $4,600 to Obama in 2008. One way to outsource funds from Bain.
At the same time over twenty corporations including Credit Suise Group @ $18,000, Google, Time Warner, Citigroup and up to the highest giver Goldman Sachs which gave $421,000 to Obama's campaign. Evil corporate money is so difficult to turn down, isn't it?
In 2008 he began his overseas excursion into the money grabbing scene, a point that had many heads turning at that time, and now in the present he has George Clooney in Switzerland preparing for a fund-raising party there. And it was reported that his people were in Shanghai pulling in bundles of cash. Is there any hypocricy noted?
His followers find little or no fault with Obama but cling to the dirt slinging ways of Chicago politics. They have little interest in knowing anything about him. And, Obama is clearly not interested in having any of us learn much about him and his ways. The main stream press had done a terrific job of hiding the particulars of his College records, his tenure in law school, his position as lecturer or professor (never any proof of professorship advanced), his legitimate background, who paid for his schooling at these high-end places he attended? Where and how did he accumulate all the wealth he has? Who wrote his books? Who are his closest backers and financiers?
Conversely our 38th President, Gerald Ford, the first Eagle Scout as President, was unashamed of his lineage. He was born Leslie Lynch King, Jr., and was renamed by his stepfather as Gerald Rudolph Ford and our 42nd President William Clinton, who also was renamed by his stepfather from William Jefferson Blythe, Jr. is proud of who he is. Out in the open and unafraid of their past.
Obama, our President, now thinks that we've all come on our wealth and savings through a circuitous route such as his. None of us is capable of beginning a business, being successful as an important employee, and we didnt' become good and decent and smart on our own. Oh no, the government did it. The successful didn't do it through hard work, only luck and the government. Obama's objective is to create a single social class with government the deciding factor. It didn't work in Russia and Europe and it isn't going to work here. The main strream media hides many of his explosive statements, such as the one in Roanoke on Friday, but the social media is on it like a tiger. In November we can say Obama felon on hard times, with God's help and a ton of common sense.
