I have reposted Jacquerie’s compelling article twice now. I am sure there were more than a few doubting Thomas’ among the crowd, but I found this video over at Radarsite this morning. Links to Jac’s great article and another article about Obama’s funding Odinga’s campaign will follow…..
NEW YORK –Sen. Barack Obama, with a donation of nearly $1 million, and a son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi were among the biggest contributors to the presidential campaign of controversial Kenyan leader Raila Odinga, according to an internal document obtained by WND.
The memo was prepared by the head of Odinga’s campaign finance accounting section, Shakeel Shabbir, as an official report delivered to the national treasurer for Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement party, or ODM.
Among the 72 individuals and organizations that contributed money to Odinga’s 2007 presidential run in Kenya, Shabbir lists “Friends of Senator B.O.” as having donated 66,000,000 Kenyan schillings, about $950,000.
Saif el-Islam Gadhafi, the Libyan strongman’s second oldest son, reportedly donated 53,450,000 Kenyan schillings, about $765,000.
According to several highly credible ex-ODM sources WND interviewed in Kenya, the $950,000 raised for Odinga’s campaign came from a series of private meetings arranged for Odinga by Mark Lippert, a foreign policy adviser in Obama‘s U.S. Senate office. The meetings with top-dollar Obama fundraisers and donors took place during Odinga’s 2006 trip to the U.S.
It is actually possible that this article in the MSM might bring more attention to yet another disturbing association that Barack Obama maintains. It continues to highlight the question “Who The Hell Is Barack Obama? I do not believe that accepting the marketed image of Obama lock, stock, and barrel would be either wise or advisable at this point. John McCain is an open book; Barack on the other hand has more and more strange connections that are just coming to light. Stay tuned for an upcoming article highlighting the tangled web that Barack appears to be the center of.
Hyman: Obama’s Kenya Ghosts:
About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.
The 2008 New Year Day atrocity in the Kenyan village Eldoret, about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi, had all the markings of the Rwanda genocide of a decade earlier.
By mid-February 2008, more than 1,500 Kenyans were killed. Many were slain by machete-armed attackers. More than 500,000 were displaced by the religious strife. Villages lay in ruin. Many of the atrocities were perpetrated by Muslims against Christians.
The violence was led by supporters of Raila Odinga, the opposition leader who lost the Dec. 27, 2007, presidential election by more than 230,000 votes. Odinga supporters began the genocide hours after the final election results were announced Dec. 30. Mr. Odinga was a member of Parliament representing an area in western Kenya, heavily populated by the Luo tribe, and the birthplace of Barack Obama‘s father.
Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya’s Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.
The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of “Islam as the only true religion,” Islamic leaders would have an “oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original],” installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who “allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists,” adoption of a women’s dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork.
This was not Mr. Odinga’s first brush with notoriety. Like his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the main opposition leader in the 1960s and 1970s, Raila Odinga is a Marxist He graduated from East Germany’s Magdeburg University in 1970 on a scholarship provided by the East German government. He named his oldest son after Fidel Castro.
Initially, Mr. Odinga was not the favored opposition candidate to stand in the 2007 election against President Mwai Kibaki, who was seeking his second term. However, he received a tremendous boost when Sen. Barack Obama arrived in Kenya in August 2006 to campaign on his behalf. Mr. Obama denies that supporting Mr. Odinga was the intention of his trip, but his actions and local media reports tell otherwise.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama were nearly inseparable throughout Mr. Obama’s six-day stay. The two traveled together throughout Kenya and Mr. Obama spoke on behalf of Mr. Odinga at numerous rallies. In contrast, Mr. Obama had only criticism for Kibaki. He lashed out against the Kenyan government shortly after meeting with the president on Aug. 25. “The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over corruption perpetrated by government officials,” Mr. Obama announced.
“Kenyans are now yearning for change,” he declared. The intent of Mr. Obama’s remarks and actions was transparent to Kenyans – he was firmly behind Mr. Odinga.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama had met several times before the 2006 trip. Reports indicate Mr. Odinga visited Mr. Obama during trips to the U.S. in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Mr. Obama sent his foreign policy adviser Mark Lippert to Kenya in early 2006 to coordinate his summer visit. Mr. Obama’s August trip coincided with strategizing by Orange Democratic Movement leaders to defeat Mr. Kibaki in the upcoming elections. Mr. Odinga represented the ODM ticket in the presidential race.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama’s father were both from the Luo community, the second-largest tribe in Kenya, but their ties run much deeper. Mr. Odinga told a stunned BBC Radio interviewer the reason why he and Mr. Obama were staying in near daily telephone contact was because they were cousins. In a Jan. 8, 2008, interview, Mr. Odinga said Mr. Obama had called him twice the day before while campaigning in the New Hampshire primary before adding, “Barack Obama’s father is my maternal uncle.”
Mr. Obama’s judgment is seriously called into question when he backs an official with troubling ties to Muslim extremists and whose supporters practice ethnic cleansing and genocide. It was Islamic extremists in Kenya who bombed the U.S. Embassy in 1998, killing more than 200 and injuring thousands. None of this has dissuaded Mr. Obama from maintaining disturbing loyalties.
I am thinking that the last paragraph pretty much sums it up. Mr. Obama maintains disturbing loyalties, but it is up to the American public to make up their own minds.
Yesterday the news broke that Jerome Corsi, author of “The Obama Nation: Leftists Politics And The Cult Of Personality; was being held in Kenya while his immigration status was reviewed. I did not initially cover this story because some of the best PUMA and patriot sites were writing articles about this. When I checked in this morning, I found that Jerome Corsi, by some freak chance of good luck is still in the news and realized that a post I reprinted for another great PUMA dovetailed nicely into this story. Please read on past the background information to the meat of this story. I am reprinting Spirited Politics’ heavily researched article because the public needs to know what is really happening behind the Jerome Corsi story, and why he was detained and deported. Once again, read and make up your own minds but remember, Americans are not as stupid as the liberals think….connect the dots folks.
For those just joining the conversation, the LATimes has the following:
Jerome Corsi, the author of a controversial book attacking Barack Obama, has been detained in Kenya and is expected to be deported, The Times’ Nairobi bureau chief, Edmund Sanders, reports.
Corsi is the author of “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” a bestselling book whose assertions — that Obama was raised a Muslim and is secretly seething with “black rage” — have been widely dismissed as false and based on little more than the author’s desire to derail the Democrat’s presidential candidacy.
Corsi arrived in Kenya Thursday to promote the book and to investigate Obama’s ties to Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, according to a news release sent to the media by Corsi’s publisher last week. In a chapter of Corsi’s book titled “Kenya, Odinga, Communism, and Islam,” the author claims Obama gave Odinga $1 million for his 2007 presidential campaign — a claim both Obama and Odinga deny.
Corsi was detained on Tuesday by Kenyan immigration officials for failing to obtain the proper visa needed to work in the country. He told the Associated Press that he expects to be deported soon.
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The American author of a controversial book accusing Barack Obama of seething with “black rage” and of being unfit for the U.S. presidency was kicked out of Kenya on Tuesday.
The deportation of Jerome Corsi came just hours before he was to launch his book in a country where the U.S. Democratic candidate for president is wildly popular.
Corsi, who wrote “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” was detained at immigration headquarters in Nairobi for not having a work permit before being ordered to leave Kenya, said Joseph Mumira, head of criminal investigations at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
Corsi was scheduled to leave on an evening flight to London, Mumira said. Airport officials would not allow journalists access to Corsi at the airport and a message left on his mobile phone was not returned.
In the past, the Obama campaign has called Corsi a bigot peddling rehashed lies to hurt Obama in the U.S. presidential race against Republican Sen. John McCain. The best-selling book, released earlier in the United States, collects false rumors and distortions to portray Obama as a secret radical who cannot be trusted.
Obama’s late father, whom he barely knew, was a Kenyan economist and the candidate is considered by many here as a “son of the soil.” Obama’s last trip to Kenya, in 2006, drew thousands of Kenyans who thronged every stop of his tour.
Ahead of the Nov. 4 election in the U.S., minibuses here are emblazoned with Obama’s picture and vendors sell T-shirts bearing his image.
But Obama was born in Hawaii, where he spent most of his childhood raised by his mother, a white American from Kansas. (Not true; Obama was spent most of his CHILDHOOD raised in Indonesia and came back to Hawaii as a teen that was raised by his grandmother.)
Corsi’s book claims the Illinois senator is a dangerous, radical candidate for president and includes innuendoes and false rumors — that he was raised a Muslim and attended a radical black church. (True; raised as a muslim in Indonesia.)
So here we go kids; make sure you are comfortable and have your big glass of water or libation of choice right next to you because this is very long and very indepth.
August 11, 2008
I started working on a post that was more in-depth about Obama and his “cousin” Odinga of Kenya and then ran into Jacquerie. I could never do justice to the amount of research this lady has done and she has graciously allowed me to reprint her article (3 Parts) here on the monster. Part 1 today and the following 2 Parts tomorrow. This is alot of information to digest in one sitting. If there are problems with the links, let me know…..
Obama: ODM Candidate for President
Here is the MAJOR OBAMA EXPOSE NOTICE: click each underlined word for a link to even more in-depth information. Apologies for any missing links. Publication of this investigation was delayed due to repeated internet sabotage by Obama camp “scrubbing” incriminating documents and videos from the Web- in violation of the 1st amendment, for which they have no respect. The author waives all copyrights to any and all of this material.
A few months ago, I received the following letter. Under different circumstances I might have considered it a hoax or prank but now I know.
The letter began:
“Thanks for sending out an alert about Obama’s (candidacy for US President). We are living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now and know his family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent Presidential election chaos here.Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence(over 350,000) and I don’t know the last count of the dead. Obama under ‘friends of Obama’ gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odinga, who is a socialist trained in East Germany. He has been trying to bring Kenya down for yearsand the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country! December 27th elections brought cries from ODM (Odinga Camp) of rigged election.Obama and Raila speakdaily. As we watch Obama rise in the US we are sure that whatever happens, he will use the same tactic, crying rigged election if he doesn’t win and possibly cause a race war in America.
What we would like you to know is what the American press has been keeping a dirty little secret. Obama IS a muslimand he IS a racist and this is a fulfillment of the 911 threat that was just the beginning. Jihad is the only true Muslim way. We have been working with them for 20 years this July! He is not an American as we know it. Please encourage your friends and associates not to be taken in by those that are promoting him. It is world wide jihad.All our friends in Europe are very disturbed by the Muslim infiltrationinto their countries.
“Pray for us here in Kenya. We are still fighting for our nation to withstand the same kind of assaultthat every nation, including America, is fighting. Takeover from the outside to fit the new world order. As believers, this means we will be the first targets. Here in Kenya, not one mosque was burned down, but hundreds of churches were burned down, some with people in them, burned alive. Jesus Christ is our peace but the new world order of Globalism has infiltrated the church and confused believers into thinking that they can compromise and survive. It won’t be so.”
God Bless you. Christian Missionaries in Kenya (names removed to protect their privacy.)
To investigate these claims, I contacted the senders. I confirmed their solid background, of long standing missionary work, in Africa. Mutual email correspondence since has resulted in stunning documentation showing their concerns to be neither malicious nor exaggerated. In fact, in the main, they are supported by cumulative evidence, cumulatively, this fleshes out a rational, if alarming explanation for Obama’s rapid catapult into US Presidential politics. It also demystifies the dark veil of secrecy that has intentionally obscured, distorted and repressed the full facts behind his candidacy. In fact, on closer examination, correlations between Odinga’s ODM campaign strategies and objectives with those of Obama’s own campaign become self-evident. For instance, Obama, in his own biography, refers to (what he calls) Malcolm X as offering some “hope” for whites to be “brothers in Islam” and, claims he, himself, is looking “to see where the people would come from . . . to populate this new world”
Authors of above letter will not be identified here because they have become a target of rumors and viciousness. Many bloggers know, first hand, the venomous attacks made on any who dare to question or critique Obama. Growing numbers have been subject to hacked websites, disrupted comment threads. obscenities, intimidation and worse.Since the Obama camp’s invasion into the US democratic process. – psychological warfare has replaced political discourse. Indeed, no legitimate candidacy, in the history of civilized government, has been subject to the degradation, false allegations and chaotic disruptionthat Hillary Clinton and her supporters have endured in this 2008 campaign. No one even discusses the disruption of two Hillary campaign offices (one by fire and one by gunfire) – those ‘misfortunes’ being left, like so much of this recent political trail, left to the realm of remarkable coincidence.
Having lived in a 3rd world country for several years, experience has taught me how closely the terror and innuendo tactics of the Obama camp resemble the low grade political punches of unevolved nations and dictatoriships rather than what one expects in a mature democracy. Is it another coincidencethe head of Daily Kos, Obama’s internet arm, was born a US citizen, then like Obama, was was raised outside the US – in this case, in turbulent El Salvador?
In March, this poison pen agitator targeted those opposed to Obama, equating the Democratic primary to a “civil war.” Since then a tsunami of disruptive techniqueshave assailed pro- Hillary supporters online. As a popular anti-Obama blogger recently commented “Barack Obama can’t kill those of us who will never support him like Cousin Odinga is doing, so instead he is working deliberately to kill our spirit, our dignity, our status as human beings, and our Choice of President.Remember, this is the same man who eliminated all of his competition when he ran for State Senate.”
In subsequent correspondence the missionaries expanded their somber warning:
“Danger of a Race War: Our main concern is that because Obama’s race has become a black thing, it is just like Kenya when Raila’s race became a Luo thing (his tribe). When Raila cried rigged, it triggered a tribal war. We see the same parallel here with race becoming the main issue here. Believe me, all Africa is looking at this US Presidential race. Among most blacks it is no longer analyzing the candidates regarding issue, but just because he is the same color. This is now starting to stir up the old racial devils in whites which most had let go.
If Obama loses and he cries riggedlike his Kenyan cousin, believe me the potential is for US to have a race war like there was a tribal war in Kenya. We have seen this first hand, and see the exact same seeds growing here. If people of all races don’t look at this rationally instead of racially, its a real possibility we will see the same hell here they saw in Kenya, and it could be much worse. Believe me, every body will lose. It also brought economic ruin to Kenya.”
It’s worth noting that the gloomy forecast foreseen by these missionaries was originally initiated not only from far off our shores, but as far back as last year.An illustration – featured in Part 2 of “Obama – the ODM Candidate” – will demonstrate that, what Americanshaveyet to graspof the true nature of Obama’s candidacy, far away Kenyans have seen coming well before our 2008 Democratic Primaries had even occurred.
If one examines Obama’s endorsement by theBlack Panther party, an uncomfortable resemblance to Odinga’s own army of machete armed thugs can be seen. Baby boomers may recall this violent, mob-action group from earlier decades. Sadly, they have resurfaced, are well organized and, not surprisingly are 100% behind Obama. This connection has been so blatant that, prior to Father Pfleger’s notorious “outing” on TV, theBlack Panther websitefeatured photos of their hero, Obama and was linked directly to the official Obama Presidential campaign website includes a radical 10 pt. platform demanding 1) the exemption of all black men and women from the military service and 2)the release of all “people of color” from US prisons.”
The site’s hip-hop background soundtrack of incitements and obscenities correlate to a popularized current Obama pitch book, “Party Crashers” Attractively mass marketed, this new politics manual was published in February by a young AA author, who appeared in May on Fox Noon News show. Overwhelming an otherwise intelligently staffed panel discussion of F. Pfleger, this Obamanite hurled racial rants throughout the show’s airtime. Typical of this ‘movement’ she gave neither other panelists nor moderator opportunity to speak. Instead, her constant interruptions justified Pfleger’s virulent comments, not only about Hillary’s supposed “supremacist’ agenda, but also the author’s insistence that US blacks “do feel raped” by the white race. Interesting, that a google link which originally turned up her “hip-hoppers” guide for political disruption has since seemed to vanish from the web. One suspects her Fox appearance didn’t have its intentional effect. (On a side note, those interested in F. Plegers most inflammatory rants ought to download them before they disappear. In completing this article, I had to change the above link 3 times because his pulpit rants are vanishing from youtube. See here a partial summary of Obama’s terrorist-related supportersnow scrubbed from his campaign website. Fortunately, a diligent search still turns up other other evidenceof Obama’s radicaland corrupt connections
The ODMparty, which blazed into infamous influence in Kenya’s government recently, is said to stand for Orange Democratic Movement. It isn’t a stretch to substitute the first letter with either of these first cousin’s names. More correspondence clarified a key role played, in Kenya’s downfall by not only Obama, but another ‘American’, Dick Morris. This early 90’s Bill Clinton adviser political power base ended badly when his long term involvement with a prostitute was revealed. These days, Morris is political pundit on Fox news and hosts a website, from which he circulates maligning newsletters. His animosity toward Hillary Clinton is well known in political circles, attributed to her influence upon his misconduct departure from Presidential politics. Not hard to see how he’d be readily responsive to allying with Obama.
It is amusing that Fox has relied on his election prognostications while his overall reputation for ‘missing the mark’ on election forecasts is notorious.Morris , observed to be a ‘closet’ member of the Obama camp, has, since the end of the Democratic primaries, cleverly shifted his FOX attacks from Hillary to Obama. Onecan suspect, now that the Primary publicity has made his new book a “bestseller” it’s time for the pundit to cover his tracks. The motivation behind his puzzling contribution to Odinga’s ruthless assault upon Kenya’s government, thus, remains a mystery. Traveling there, on a tourist visa, Morris became prominent in Kenya’s public eye when he was announced to be Odinga’s new campaign strategist . Ironically, he is ascribed here with leading the Clinton Presidential campaign from which he was actually fired. What logical connection exists between an Obama related Muslim’s seeking of office and US based Morris, other than theirmutual relationships with Obama? A confidential copy of Nov. 2006 ODM CampaignFinance Statementindicates Morris’s service, provided pro bono , were valued at more than a quarter million USdollars. The same account statement indicates “Friends of Senator B.O.” to have provided Odinga with the US equivalent of a million dollars campaign gift ! ( Item #37 and stated in Kenyan currency.)
Morris left Kenya, just as the government protested his misuseof a tourist visa for political purposes. Though his stay there was cut short, one expects that his role as Odinga’s “political adviser” continued, based on the dollar value ascribed to his services. Following this thread of bizarre international transactionsat least makes one wonder, why would both Obama, a forthcoming candidate for US President and Morris, a former US campaign strategist be so interested in supporting the ODM campaign in distant Africa?And whywould both these US citizens abuse US visa privilegesto actively work on behalf of Odinga’s campaign???
Connecting the dots between Obama/ODM/Forces for Terror will continue in Part 2 of “Obama, The ODM Candidate for President.”In the meantime, consider the strangest coincidence of all – the synchronistic time lineof these two close relatives of Muslim originboth running for President at nearly the same time. International awareness of ODM’s Kenyan atrocities also makes one wonder why has the US MainStreamMedia beenso silentabout Odinga’s genocidal atrocities and his relationship with Obama? Also curiousthat Obama has not protested the mass murder and mayhem in the ‘beloved’ homeland of his father?Then there’sOdinga’s recent “official visit”to Washington, which only foreign press have even acknowledged?!
In 2006, the new US Senator, Barack Obama, traveled to Kenya, the homeland of his father’s ancestors. Although biographical data on this Presidential candidate is sparse and sometimes self-contradictory, there are some facts reasonably well established. Despite his campaign website statement that his father was a mere
goat-herder, his father’s family, members of the Luo tribe were influential landholders who employed goat herders. Regardless of his staff claims that Obama is not related to Raila Odinga, internationally infamous for decimating his Kenyan opposition, Odinga insists Obama’s father is his maternal uncle. And contradictory to his insistence that he, himself, is a “Christian,” the candidate wrote in his “Dreams…” biography, in speaking of Muslims“should the political winds shift in an ugly direction, I will stand with them.”
It may come, then, of less surprise, to learn that the positive US media spin on Obama’s trip stands in sharp contrast to the reaction of the US allied Kenyan government to his activities there. Quoting from Kenya’s Official website, Kenya’s ambassador condemned Obama’s use to his official US Senate visa for purposes of public campaigning for Odinga, as “injurious to Kenya/US Bilateral relations.” Expressing “disappointment” with his “unprovoked and uncalled for” statements, in which Obama publicly and passionately accused our US ally of political corruption and incited whoever was willing to listen with emotionally charged calls for Kenya’s government to “Change!” This official protest drew attention to Obama openly contradicting himself by “appreciating Kenya as a beacon of peace and stability” while, simultaneously, accusing Kenyans of tribalism and sectarian divisions.” It also “took great exception” to being lectured (by a foreigner and US officeholder) on the “merits and demerits of (Kenyan) corruption or what to do about it” as well as “choosing “to trash and sneer us in the face.” In fact, CBC news, in one of the few USmedia clips of his Kenya visit refers to Obama’s travel there as frequently including Odinga “at his elbow.”In this same report, a Kenyan government spokesman referred to Obama as a “stooge for Odinga.” Isn’t it a bit odd that a US Senator, who used his official visa to overtly campaign against a US allied government, was notrebuked for this behavior by either the US press or the Senate.Not long after Odinga began his official ODM campaign for Kenya’s presidency, terror tactics began against his opposition as did his tirade of corruption charges (corresponding to Senator Obama ‘public outcry’ during his Kenya trip.
A review of the ODM’s underlying, manipulative strategy reveals many correlatives to the conduct of the US Obama Presidential campaign. To begin, The ODM Action Plancharts a several part strategy to win, including: “reinforced promises of jobs and economic gains.” In fact, since the recently “negotiated” government has formed, to end the ODM slaughter of Kenyans, thenew “Prime Minister”position, created just for Odinga as well as the expansion of the cabinet to satisfy ODM demands for influence, arecosting Kenyans about $1.5 million a month. This includes special travel benefits, club memberships, security personnel and shiny new cars for Cabinet Ministers, all of which are tax-exempt. New PM Odinga, alone, has a security staff of 45 with a fleet of cars to travel in. All this in a developing nation where the average annual per capita income of about $400. Guess we can see whose economic gains have been achieved, so far, by the “Grand Coalition” government, as it is called.
Apparently, that strategy is working so far for the few, if not the many. Credit goes to the ODM Action Plan that made this ‘reform’ possible. See it here (after
the accounts pages, entitled: “Executive Brief on the Positioning and Marketing of the Orange Democratic Movementand the People’s President.” Under the header ‘The class issue” its’ directive to “triggera class warcorrelates to a widening aggression by Muslims. Its’ strategy of portraying existing democracies as …insensitive, uncaring…”calls for incitement of unrest”, particularly to “resonate with . . youth who feel economically marginalized.” On this front the ODM party plan it to “seek to elevate the emotions within all youth constituents…who may be willing to vote for us in protest” and encourages the emphasis of “visible signs of class disparity will provide important fodder for this theme.”
This same Action Plan calls for Odinga to remain allied with the US …(so that)…the “ODM can expect both financial and political support particularly from the US.”(We’ll review the current success of this strategy in Part 3). Under its next heading, called Pull All Plugs “…subterranean campaigns will form a critical component of our activities. Corruption in the government will provide ready material for this war.”Note that the campaign, itself is referred toas a war, then recall how this March Daily Kos (Obama’s unoffical internet promoter, described theUSDemocratic political party as being in a state of “civil war.”Those aware of blocked internet and media attempts to question Obama’s candidacy will readily identify the ongoing correspondence of ODM tactics – as applied to the US Presidential race.
Regarding the Media, the ODM plan refers to an “Orange team” which maintained “intimate contacts across all the media” as far back as 2005 – and actually mentions “a number of senior media managers active in the campaign.” Emphatically, the Plan establishes a directive for the strongest Media Centre possible, “understanding that victory in the media war could very well mean victory at the polls.”Next, there is a reference to “Fixers” as key point as men without whom “the whole thing could tumble” whose tasks include “insulate the candidate from attacks by not all advertising and campaign efforts”. . . and applying all possible efforts to “retain discipline among the party leadership, including reminding them of their vulnerability.”This document may come from Kenya, but doesn’t it all sound much too familiar since Obama began his race to lead our nation?
Also of interest may be the chums of Odinga listed under “Funding” who include such high minded governing allies as “Nigeria. . Libya. .. . and the Republic of the Congo” and, of added interest, this list of “funders” closes with “US Republicans.” We’ll leave it to others to ponder how Republicans have managed to be included in such good company, while recalling that the unnamed“Friends of Sen. B.O”whom ODM documents say Odinga $1 million dollars are yet to be identified.It’s amusing that the only media denial of an Obama financial contribution to Odinga states “the Obama Presidential campaign” gave no funding to Odinga. Morale? Hair splitting pays.
ODM Action Plan “Schedule of Activities” includes “galvanize the rest of the country against a common enemy” by Mass Media, Rallies, Leaflets and viral email.”If it’s a sign of things for US to look forward to, the Plan calls for heightened activity in the 3 weeks before the election.Other “Activities ” scheduled are to “accentuate anti-opposition sentiments, cause un-ease in the (Party) ranks, attract )another opponents) votes by eliminating beliefthat” opposition will continue, “communicate the intention to retain power within a select group of prominent political families.” All these being activated by: “speculative news articles, public pronouncements at rallies, blogs and web forums, leaflets in targeted areas.”Continuing the theme of accusing others of “Corruption– as Obama did on Odinga’s behalf during his Senate trip – depicting the opponent as irredeemably corrupt as “a diversionary salvos . . . worth pursuing throughout the electioneering period (via) press conferences, TV, radio, talk shows, rallies, viral email, Blogs andYoutube…” Then, there is note of a potential “killer” blow by more “release of (opponent’s) incriminating record” in government – to be done 10 days before the election. What is most interesting about this grand finale is the comment “Our media partners are waiting to serialize the contents.”
The employment of ODM strategies continues with “The age issue”citing “our core supporters are essentially young people who are angry about the domination of politics by frail septuagenarians.Billboards and leaflets“ridiculing the old people”in the oppositionwith the “contrast to (images)
of (our candidate) with young people – the promise of a buoyant future.” Saving the worst for last, the ODM’s final category of action is simply headed “Rigging.” Maybe we could call how to win even if you lose? It begins by “preparing the ground for rejection of unfavorable results” and “deflect attention from ourselves should opportunities by available to manipulate voter turn out in (key) areas” and closes with “EthnicTensions/Violence as a last resortto “discourage voter participation in hostile areas” including “use of ODM agents on the ground toengineer ethnic tensions in target areas.” Anyone can find many youtube newsclips depicting the bloody systematic violence by ODM youth, after Odinga’s loss of the Presidency.
It’s disheartening for this life long Democrat to listen to young voters’ nonchalance toward Obama’s divisive, ruthless and dishonorable campaign tactics, summed in the cynical remark, “That’s just politics.” Have to say they are both right and wrong; Obama’s strategies bear little resemblance to the democratic system that has brought this country to greatness. But they sure do appear to come straight out of Odinga’s ODM handbook. Note, also, the political cartoon above, direct from the Kenya Nation paper. Seems far away Africans have a clearer concept of Obama’s message than many US voters do. Bearing in mind the other secret pact which Odinga signed onto with the Muslim nations, one needs to ask, when it comes to Obama, what’s next?
Comparing the two Presidential campaigns, warning signs might be drawn from recent remedial government policies in Kenya, required since the ODM’s bloody parley into partial rule. Onewhich may sound familiar to anti-Obama bloggers requests“media houses not to air live press conferences and call-ins into radio shows to empower editors to be in control of the information relayed, stating: “ In the prevailing environment, some people areusing the media to call for violence and to incite members of the public to engage in violence.” Another is the landmark launching of a new Witness Protection program, deemed necessary due tothe “post election violence, grave human rights violations (and) wanton destruction of property by new criminal groups, organized along ethnic lines,to intimidate, threaten and kill witnesses who cooperate with law enforcement agencies.” Bearing in mind the well-organized support for Obama among the Nation of Islam, Black Panthers and the Recreate ‘68 movement, where techniques are drawn from William Ayres and SDS handbook, one can wonder what role similar threats have played in the aquiescence of the Democratic Party to Obama’s presmptuous claim to the nomination? His reservation of a stadium to seat 75,000 of his imported fans might also be interpreted as a veiled threat. Oddly, the Democratic leaders, Senators Pelosi and Reid, who contributed to his precipitous pre-convention “coronation” were not even consulted nor informed of this surprising change of venue until after it was already arranged.
Connecting the dots“Obama the ODM Candidate for President, Part 3, will quote directly from Odinga’s Memorandum with the National Muslim Leaders Forum. This group, along with “Friends of Senator B.O. invested $1 million dollars in Odinga’s thus far partially successful coup of Kenya. Like ‘”a rose is a rose” a coup which callsitself a“Democratic Movement” but actually uses intimidating, deceptive and violent war strategiesis still a coup.

ODM Action Plan as Executed in
Obama’s US Campaign:
A Checklist Comparison
1. Both candidates represent radicalfactions. Obama’s short list includes Rezko, with his secret MidEast money trail; Wm Ayres with whom he funded Muslim causes; Farrakan, head of the Nation of Islam and many others.
2. Both campaigns are substantially funded by secretPACs, multi-layering contributions which makes them difficult to trace.
3, Both use propagandadenouncing ‘Corruption.” The theme of Obama speeches in Kenya for Odinga have been echoed throughout his own US campaign.
4. Both employ vague rhetoric extolling the need for “CHANGE!”– the same Kenya ODM battle cry heard, ad nauseum, in Obama’s campaign here.
5. Each identify themselves as leaders of a “Movement”– as if to deflect attention away from the candidate to incite “mob” energy, most often extolling popular platitudes rather thanaddressing specific issues.
5. Both employ core strategy of “seek(ing) to elevate the emotions within young constituents.” Consider D. Brazille’s boasts of Obama’s popularity with new voters as well as his primary season targeting of college campuses. Lowest of all these youth grab tactics, may be the current explicit democratic party sponsoredinternet sex ads, which suggests that single young men will be sex-deprived if they support the senior McCaine over the hip Obama.
6. Ridicule of “old people.” is a strategy to usurp respect for existing leadership. The ODM candidate, by contrast, is surrounded by the youthful “promise of a buoyant future.” Just last week 2 young MSM bloggers extolled how“cool and hip Obama is” describing McCaine as“old and dumpy.” The insinuation is McCain is unfit to lead because of his age. Similar internet insults of both Clintons were rampant during the primary season. One would think we were voting for American Idol, not the leader of the free world!
7. The ODM Action Plan call – “trigger a class war”by focusing on issues of “disparity” explains why Obama, the candidate who touts up “unity” routinely engenders divisivenessbetween virtually all interest groups. Surely, we recall classic strategy of ancient Roman – to “divide and conquer.”
8. ODM’s adage: “Elevate emotions to gain protest votes” is the “conquest” which follows the incitement of “class warfare” to divide. As a middle aged American, I’ve always been familiar with references to the “middle class” as our country’s great strength. In Obama’s clever dissembling of the “middle class,” we have been subtly shifted to the language of the “working class“ the “working poor”, etc. Clearly the “middle class” is Obama’s worst enemy were it to remain one cohesive
voting bloc. His background of “black theology” holds “middle class-ness” in contemptas exemplified by many of Reverend Wright’s tirades, Michelle Obama speeches and Obama’s own“bittergate” comments. His more recent energy-solution of giving up “your SUV’s and his open disdain for English speaking Americans in Europe follow the same line.
9. When it comes to “reinforce promises of jobs and economic gainsto supporters and “retain discipline among the party leadership, we can see a summary of Dean and Axelrod’s illegitimate Super Delegate sweep, in flagrant violation of the voters in numerous state primaries. Could be the Obama campaign has, as the ODM plan instructs, beenremind(ing) these party leaders of their own vulnerability.”
10. Come election day, the ODM call for “manipulation of voter turn-out” with “discouragement of voter participation in hostile areas.” This was reflected in innumerable reports of Caucus fraud in this spring’s campaign. These were so intentional as to demonstrate careful advance planning. As we all know, it was these caucuses that established Obama’s press “momentum.” Caucus outcomes, which hardly reflected the “Will of the People, were reported to include aggressive participation busloads of youthful Obama supporters. As caucuses, historically, have involved small groups of local political devotees, verifying documentation of residency, etc. are not usually part of the rules of that process.
11. We could call last one “when all else fails”, since the ODM even planned a strategy for “winning” – vehemently implimented after Odinga lost the popular vote. Well organized riots and violence followed large, advance sales of machetes, carried along with gasoline cans, by ODM supporters, into predominantly Christian areas.
