Obama Caught in Another Deception: Radical Anti-Semite Back as Advisor After Campaign Vowed Never to Work With Him Again

Posted by iusbvision on November 20, 2008

Remember this guy? Of course you don’t, but you have been lied to and this is why I am writing about this.

Robert Malley

Robert Malley

He is Robert Malley and he was thrown under the bus by the Obama Campaign back in May because of his long time radical anti-Israeli views and because Malley had been holding talks/negotiations with the terrorist group HAMAS.

This came at a time where Obama’s associations with radical Anti-Semites such as Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, William Ayers, Rashid Khalidi and the whole list of them were becoming news. Khalidi was a press agent for the PLO, Obama had managed to funnel money to his group when he served on the Woods Foundation and Khalidi helped to finance Obama’s college education. All that mutual back scratching…. the “change” you voted for.

Malley wrote a paper which received some notoriety that blamed Israel for the reasons why peace talks have broken down and exonerated his long time family friend Yassir Arafat. For those of you familiar with this period of history would know well what this means about Malley and if it had gotten out that Obama was using this man as an advisor the Jewish vote would be in jeopardy.

Malley’s family has been very close to the Arafat’s. France even through his family out of the country for their radical view’s and the Arafat’s intervened to try and help them get back into France. While Malley cannot help who his family is, it does give context to Malley’s actions.

More on Malley’s history and why Obama had to throw him under the bus in May can be found HERE and HERE.

May 10 – Times of London: Barack Obama sacks adviser over talks with Hamas

One of Barack Obama’s Middle East policy advisers disclosed yesterday that he had held meetings with the militant Palestinian group Hamas – prompting the likely Democratic nominee to sever all links with him.

Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Mr Obama, responded swiftly: “Rob Malley has, like hundreds of other experts, provided informal advice to the campaign in the past. He has no formal role in the campaign and he will not play any role in the future.”The rapid departure of Mr Malley followed 48 hours of heated clashes between John McCain, the Republican nominee-elect, and Mr Obama over Middle East policy.

But look who is now the official Middle East envoy for the Obama Transition:

Report: Obama Sends Advisor Malley to Cozy Up to Egypt and Syria

by Gil Ronen

( According to a report on Middle East Newsline, President-elect Barack Obama has dispatched his “senior foreign policy adviser”, Robert Malley to Egypt and Syria to outline Obama’s policy on the Middle East.

Malley reportedly relayed a promise from Obama that the United States would seek to enhance relations with Cairo and reconcile differences with Damascus.

The whole thing about throwing Malley under the bus and not working with him in the future was a fake out for the election. It was designed to sucker voters. Joe Biden said that no one stands for Israel more than he does, well Joe why is this anti-Semite a part of your transition team?

I recall Fox News’ Sheppard Smith taking Joe the Plumber to task for saying that an Obama victory would be a threat to Israel. Smith took the famed plumber to task saying that Obama has announced his support for Israel. As we have shown time and time and time again, Obama’s rhetoric often does not jive with his actions.

UPDATE – Obama Advisor Samantha Power Called for Invasion of Israel in 2002.

Congressman: “It’s Not YOUR Money”

Posted by iusbvision on November 19, 2008

This is the problem folks. The credit crunch, the energy crisis, the overspending, the corruption in the tax code, earmark kickbacks, ALL of this is due to corruption in Congress and those outside of government who go along with it. This guy needs to be thrown out of office and he is a Republican. He is from Michigan and just wants more of your money thrown in his state without the needed reforms.

Amazingly enough, the Democrats who run the Finance Committee and played a large role in the Mortgage Scandal also got re-elected. People wanted change and they got more of the same.

Thanks to for the video link.

Update – In the meantime, the DEMOCRAT Congressman who was caught with $100,000 in bribe money in his freezer, is about to win re-election. has this to say:

Meanwhile, the Democratic leadership that promised The Most Ethical Congress Evah still allows Dollar Bill Jefferson to retain his seat on the Homeland Security committee. 

Sort of says it all doesn’t it. Of course, the average Obama voter, according to Zogby, didn’t even know that the Democrats have been in control of Congress.

It gets better, Obama has announced that Eric Holder will be the new Aterney General. He was the guy in the Clinton Administration who “vetted” (read engineered) the pardons for bribes scandal at the end of Clinton’s presidency. Marc Rich, being the most noted of many, was the largest tax evader in U.S. History and after people in his family and his ex-wife gave money to the Clinton Library, instant presidential pardon!

Prediction – with all the Fannie Mae people, other corrupt people and lobbyists making up the new Obama Administration, if you loved the corruption that was rampant in the Clinton Adminnistration, you will LOVE Obama’s.

Ignorance in Action: Obama Supporters Cannot Answer Basic Questions About Government or About Their Own Candidates…But Look at What They Did Know…

Posted by iusbvision on November 18, 2008

There has been an ongoing argument in elections class this semester. Do young people vote for Obama because of marketing or because of increased knowledge? I said that it is marketing, and even though it upset people, I contend that the public education system has produced a generation of of largely poor critical thinkers who have great self asteem but don’t know much. Such poeple make an emotional decision and use what intellect they have to justify it. I have NEVER (and I ask this question to almost every Obama supporter I meet if the topic of politics comes up) met a student or lay person, who supported Obama, that can even answer basic questions about his past life, which is strange because Obama has written two memoirs.

I contend that the media gives people only selected facts, and delivers them with an attitude or a narrative spin, The result is that people belive they are informed, when they are not.

This study below also shows how the media gets talking points out to people that they want delivered to the masses. The video and the study speak for themselves.

Zogby Poll of 512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes [Obama spent $232,000 per HOUR in October – Editor]

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we “gave” one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

Special thanks to for the video link!

Update – Second Video from Brietbart TV.

VIDEO: “The Surge Worked” – “The War is Over and We Won”

Posted by iusbvision on November 17, 2008

Instapundit (Dr. Glen Reynolds) has this from reporter Micheal Yon who has been on the ground in Baghdad more than most anyone:

“THE WAR IS OVER AND WE WON:” Michael Yon just phoned from Baghdad, and reports that things are much better than he had expected, and he had expected things to be good. “There’s nothing going on. I’m with the 10th Mountain Division, and about half of the guys I’m with haven’t fired their weapons on this tour and they’ve been here eight months. And the place we’re at, South Baghdad, used to be one of the worst places in Iraq. And now there’s nothing going on. I’ve been walking my feet off and haven’t seen anything. I’ve been asking Iraqis, ‘do you think the violence will kick up again,’ but even the Iraqi journalists are sounding optimistic now and they’re usually dour.”

UPDATE: Rand Simberg: “No thanks to the Democrats, including Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who tried to keep it from happening. I see that they still can’t bring themselves to utter the word ‘win’ with respect to the war. They continue to talk about ‘ending’ it. Well, it looks like George Bush did that for them, and he won it as well.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: More thoughts at The Mudville Gazette.

MORE: Yon emails this correction: “Actually, NONE of them have fired their weapons in combat during this tour, and about half of them are combat veterans from Afghanistan and/or Iraq.” Sorry, I had misunderstood that bit.

Special thanks to for posting the video and the heads up.

Experiment in Tolerance: 14 Year Old Wears “McCain Girl” T-Shirt to School With Predictable Results

Posted by iusbvision on November 14, 2008

This is one of the finest examples of how our public schools have completely failed to teach our children tolerance, politics, and an intellectual curiosity of both sides of an argument.

As the media keeps gushing on about how America has finally adopted tolerance as the great virtue, and that we’re all united now, let’s consider the Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment.

Catherine Vogt, 14, is an Illinois 8th grader, the daughter of a liberal mom and a conservative dad. She wanted to conduct an experiment in political tolerance and diversity of opinion at her school in the liberal suburb of Oak Park.

She noticed that fellow students at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama for president. His campaign kept preaching “inclusion,” and she decided to see how included she could be.

So just before the election, Catherine consulted with her history teacher, then bravely wore a unique T-shirt to school and recorded the comments of teachers and students in her journal. The T-shirt bore the simple yet quite subversive words drawn with a red marker:

“McCain Girl.”

Immediately, Catherine learned she was stupid for wearing a shirt with Republican John McCain’s name. Not merely stupid. Very stupid.

“People were upset. But they started saying things, calling me very stupid, telling me my shirt was stupid and I shouldn’t be wearing it,” Catherine said.

Then it got worse.

“One person told me to go die. It was a lot of dying. A lot of comments about how I should be killed,” Catherine said, of the tolerance in Oak Park.

But students weren’t the only ones surprised that she wore a shirt supporting McCain.

“In one class, I had one teacher say she will not judge me for my choice, but that she was surprised that I supported McCain,” Catherine said.

If Catherine was shocked by such passive-aggressive threats from instructors, just wait until she goes to college.

“Later, that teacher found out about the experiment and said she was embarrassed because she knew I was writing down what she said,” Catherine said.

One student suggested that she be put up on a cross for her political beliefs.

“He said, ‘You should be crucifixed.’ It was kind of funny because, I was like, don’t you mean ‘crucified?’ ” Catherine said.

Other entries in her notebook involved suggestions by classmates that she be “burned with her shirt on” for “being a filthy-rich Republican.”

Some said that because she supported McCain, by extension she supported a plan by deranged skinheads to kill Obama before the election. And I thought such politicized logic was confined to American newsrooms. Yet Catherine refused to argue with her peers. She didn’t want to jeopardize her experiment.

 It gets better…..

Only a few times did anyone say anything remotely positive about her McCain shirt. One girl pulled her aside in a corner, out of earshot of other students, and whispered, “I really like your shirt.”

That’s when you know America is truly supportive of diversity of opinion, when children must whisper for fear of being ostracized, heckled and ‘crucifixed’.

 So the student turns the tables:

The next day, in part 2 of The Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment, she wore another T-shirt, this one with “Obama Girl” written in blue. And an amazing thing happened.

Catherine wasn’t very stupid anymore. She grew brains.

“People liked my shirt. They said things like my brain had come back, and I had put the right shirt on today,” Catherine said.,0,2881384.column?page=1


This is exactly the type of double standard in tolerance that I have witnessed time and time again from the far left. Tolerance is fine unless you say or do something they do not like. It is just like when members of the V-Club and IUSB Judicial Affairs tried to ‘punish’ Robert Francis because they didn’t like what he was writing for The Preface, or the behavior of the IUPUI AAO and the Black Faculty and Staff Council towards Keith Sampson. commented on this story HERE.

VIDEO: Forces of Tolerance Assault Elderly Lady at Protest and Prevent Her from Speaking to Reporter

Posted by iusbvision on November 11, 2008

The “Forces of Tolerance” are the “pro-gay marriage” protesters.

The video is HERE. is following the story HERE.

This is so typical of the far left, I have seen it here at IUSB, we see it at college’s across the country. The simple fact is that about 25% of the people in the country, and these people gravitate to bureaucractic jobs, have no regard for freedom of speech and conscience whatsoever. Polls among high schools students and the First Amendment are frightening.

25% said “the First Amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees,” well below the 49% recorded in the 2002 survey that followed the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, but up from 18% in 2006.


Yet, when told of the exact text of the First Amendment, more than one in three high school students said it goes “too far” in the rights it guarantees. Only half of the students said newspapers should be allowed to publish freely without government approval of stories.

“These results are not only disturbing; they are dangerous,” said Hodding Carter III, president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which sponsored the $1 million study. “Ignorance about the basics of this free society is a danger to our nation’s future.”

What better a better way to destroy Americanism than to make certain that students forget it?

UPDATE: Mormans in California sent “white powder letters” in mail from those more tolerant – LINK.

CELEBRATE: Evil “Rich” Domestic Businesses Will Have to Pay Now! – …or will they?

Posted by iusbvision on November 5, 2008

Who pays the business tax anyway? We do! You can’t tax business. Business doesn’t pay taxes. It collects taxes. And if they can’t be passed on to the customer in the price of the product as a cost of operation, business goes out of business. Now what they’re going to do is make it easier for demagogic politicians-and you’ve got plenty of them in the state legislature-to say to the people, look, we need money for this worthwhile project but we’re not going to tax you, we’re going to tax business, now that we can do it by a one vote margin. So they’ll tax business and the price of the product will go up and the people will blame the storekeeper for the rise in the price of the product, not recognizing that all he’s doing is passing on to them a hidden sales tax.

If people need any more concrete explanation of this, start with the staff of life, a loaf of bread. The simplest thing; the poorest man must have it. Well, there are 151 taxes now in the price of a loaf of bread-it accounts for more than half the of a loaf of bread. It begins with the first tax, on the farmer that raised the wheat. Any simpleton can understand that if that farmer cannot get enough money for his wheat, to pay the property tax on his farm, he can’t be a farmer. He loses his farm. And so it is with the fellow who pays a driver’s license and a gasoline tax to drive the truckload of wheat to the mill, the miller who has to pay everything from social security tax, business license, everything else. He has to make his living over and above those costs. So they all wind up in that loaf of bread. Now an egg isn’t far behind and nobody had to make that. There’s a hundred taxes in an egg by the time it gets to market and you know the chicken didn’t put them there! – Ronald Reagan 1975.

International corporations and companies who moved overseas are rejoicing that their small to medium sized American competition is about to be taxed even more under Obama. The oil cartel is celebrating because it means that America will not be producing more domestic oil or nuclear energy so they will still have a stranglehold on our economy. Some on Wall Street will rejoice because Obama will increase government spending as he has promised…which in reality has become the biggest corporate welfare of all.

Does anyone else find it ironic that Obama criticized Republicans for (going along with democrats) to raise spending too much in the last eight years, saying that “Republicans spent too much” and yet his own plan is to spend an extra trillion over and above what government is now?

It took Watergate to get us Jimmy Carter and it took Jimmy Carter to get us Ronald Reagan. It now seems that every generation needs to have it’s Jimmy Carter to learn this lesson…..and you wonder why the public school system gives us a historical perspective that goes back little further than breakfast.

The Left Showing Stalinist Stripes Already – Senator Schumer: Regulate Political Speech, It’s Just Like Pornography…. more developing…; UPDATE: Vote Fraud and Intimidation Reports

Posted by iusbvision on November 4, 2008

So this will be their attack plan for silencing talk radio or anyone else who wont be in the tank for them; draw an equivalence between political speech and porn. Take the First Amendment and toss it out the window.

Schumer is a lawyer, and everyone who has taken Constitutional Law or Communications Law knows that political/cultural/religious speech is THE most protected and porn is almost unprotected because its only purpose is a prurient interest. The courts have ruled on this so many times that I don’t have the room to list the cases. Schumer and the far left are counting on voters not understanding this simple fact.

Watch the video to see for yourself.

Special thanks to for posting this video.

UPDATE– The radio reports aired audio from Democrat Congressman Jim Moran who said that people who have wealth are under the misguided illusion that they are entitled to keep it. He also says that capitalism doesn’t work. Still think the word socialism is a smear folks? Do most regular Democrats really intend for the government to decide how much you make, to take your inheritances and to forcibly reinstate the welfare state the Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton, and John Kasich helped to bring to an end that has been so good for our economy?

We will post the audio ASAP.

UPDATE II:  Reports of Black Panthers with nightsticks at the polling places in Philly, Republican poll workers and watchers forcibly removed from polling places…. let the fraud begin. Developing…. more soon.

Black Panthers at polling places report.

More Black Panthers at polling places

Election monitors thrown out illegally:

GOP Election Board members have been tossed out of polling stations in at least half a dozen polling stations in Philadelphia because of their party status.

A Pennsylvania judge previously ruled that court-appointed poll watchers could be NOT removed from their boards by an on-site election judge, but that is exactly what is happening, according to sources on the ground.

More… Professor tearing down McCain signs.

State of Virginia fails to send military absentee ballots out in time… McCain sues.

Obama: Coal Powered Power Plants Will Be Bankrupted by Government Policy

Posted by iusbvision on November 3, 2008

“If somebody wants to build a coal power plant they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” Barack Obama said to the San Francisco Chronicle in January.

So the real question is, why did the San Francisco Chronicle sit on this until recently. They may have put it online, but this should have been front page material early in the primary, not today. Instead they put it there and didn’t tell anyone about it.  If McCain had said anything like this the elite media would have had a field day with it. This little tactic of posting explosive or important information with as little notice as posible is called “burying the lead”. It is one of the most often used forms of media bias.

This is the man who will get energy prices down?


Obama: Under my plan electricity prices will skyrocket

You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers. comments HERE.
