People in Glass Houses Shouldn’t Throw Stones

Follow up content to: The Door to McCain's Housing Gaffe Swings Both Ways

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones - "Those who are vulnerable should not attack others. The proverb has been traced back to Geoffrey Chaucer's 'Troilus and Criseyde' (1385). George Herbert wrote in 1651, 'Whose house is of glass, must not throw stones at another.' This saying is first cited in the United States in 'William & Mary College Quarterly' (1710). Benjamin Franklin wrote, 'Don't throw stones at your neighbors', if your own windows are glass.' 'To live in a glass house' is used as a figure of speech referring to vulnerability." From "Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings" (1996) by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996).

Let us examine the many houses Barack Obama has enjoyed.

Barack Obama’s primary residence was purchased with the aid of Tony Rezko, a Syrian born corrupt-American (how’s that for a hyphenated term?) Rezko a corrupt real estate mogul has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Barack Obama. He is also heading to jail in September 2008 for the multitude of felonies he committed.

Tony Rezko also purchased the lot next door to the Obama residence in order for the Obama’s to extend their yard. How cozy.

The homes of Barack Obama’s friends and neighbors are occupied by domestic terrorists William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. They are also neighbors with Louis Farrakhan, racist leader of the Nation of Islam. Barack Obama’s church bestowed their highest honor upon Louis Farrakhan. You can read about that here: Barack Obama’s Church Honors Nation of Islam leader.

In addition, to attending house parties with Ayers and his wife Dohrn, Barack Obama enjoyed chairing a board with his neighbor and domestic terrorist. Together, Obama and Ayers doled out money to the Arab-Action-Network, an organization with foreign terrorist ties.

Is it a coincidence that Barack Obama is neighbors with domestic terrorists and the leader of the Nation of Islam, two men so close to Obama's inner circle, two men that declared war on America and called for America’s destruction?

The many housing units that Barack Obama secured subsidies for are in severe disrepair.

From the Boston Globe:

The buildings of Grove Parc Plaza, in a dense neighborhood that Barack Obama represented for eight years as a state senator, hold 504 apartments subsidized by the federal government for people who can't afford to live anywhere else.

Many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.

Obama's close friends and political supporters profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama's constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.

[Some of] those friends are: Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama's presidential campaign and a member of his finance committee; Allison Davis, a major fund-raiser for Obama's US Senate campaign and a former partner at Obama's former law firm; Antoin "Tony" Rezko. [Yes, the same Rezko that donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to his campaign, this is a mere tip of the iceberg].

Rezko's company used subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,000 apartments, mostly in and around Obama's district, and then refused to manage the units, leaving the buildings to decay to the point where many no longer were habitable.

Rezko is also connected to Barack Obama AND a former Nation of Islam leader through a corrupt minority business set-a-side scam at Chicago O’Hare Airport. See here: Chicago Scam

The coincidences and degrees of separation are growing and shrinking all in the same corrupt ebb.

In conclusion, not because the list is exhausted; no, the list is much more lengthy than featured here.

For the sake of brevity, we will close the door here, with Obama’s House of Worship.

As most of you know, Barack Obama spent more than 20-years in a church that spewed racist, anti-American hate. How hateful was the church that Barack Obama deemed fit to baptize his daughters in? Well, Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s former pastor implored a national audience to learn about James Cone the father of Black Liberation Theology the architect of Obama’s religion.

"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community. Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love." -James Cone

See: Obama’s House of Worship.

The Door to McCain’s Housing Gaffe Swings Both Ways

By Tony Vega

When asked about how many homes he owns, John McCain responded:

"I think — I’ll have my staff get to you,” McCain told Politico in Las Cruces, N.M. “It’s condominiums where — I’ll have them get to you.”

That caused an immediate stir by the Obama people. In a heated race, I understand the stir. I do not think it wise for the Obama camp to throw stones in this case; I will get to that later.

McCain is a rich man, I know that and America knows that. That is a commonality shared among presidential candidates past and present. The fact that a rich man owns multiple homes is not a matter of concern, unless of course the homes were purchased as the result of personal corruption.

The exploitation of John McCain's inept response is to portray McCain as being out of touch and not knowledgeable of current economic issues. Obama's campaign did a good job at illustrating that sentiment.

After McCain bumbled his answer, the Obama campaign immediately aired a negative ad. In addition to pointing out McCain's housing crisis, they attempted to bash him on the economy and excerpted a McCain comment; "I think the fundamentals of the U.S. economy are very strong"
The full quote and background of that comment:

Fortune (magazine): Do you believe the U.S. economy today is fundamentally sound?

McCain: "I think the fundamentals of the U.S. economy are very strong. We're still the most innovative, the greatest exporter, the greatest importer, the greatest producer, and by any measurement. And I believe the fundamentals are sound. But that in no way diminishes the severity of the immediate challenge to our economy and millions of Americans."

That above comment is more in touch with the American people, than Obama's desire to raise capital gains and to raise the cap on Social Security. McCain, in the past has mentioned that the economy is not his strong suit. It is sad that McCain's weak suit is still stronger than Obama's full hand.

Why would Barack Obama scoff at the notion of the US economy being fundamentally sound? Perhaps, the counter to that fits Obama’s negative image of America.

A little more background on those homes; according to public records the homes and condominiums are in the name of a corporation trust, which is controlled by Cindy McCain separate from John. This doesn't help the appearance of being in touch, but is factual none-the-less.

Frank Luntz, a pollster and focus group organizer studied the reaction of the anti-McCain and anti-Obama ads aired by the respective campaigns in response to this issue. The focus group analyzed was comprised of "undecided" voters. The analysis showed the ad displaying personal corruption (Obama and Rezko real estate deals) registered more profoundly with prospective voters than the ad displaying McCain's housing gaffe.

Obama ad: "Seven"

McCain ad: "Housing Problem"

I stated earlier that I did not think it wise for the Obama camp to throw stones in this housing case. We‘ll explore that later in a follow up article titled “People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”

Opening Day: DNC 2008

August 25, 2008

By Tony Vega for Associate Content

The highlights of the 2008 Democratic National Committee Convention were the inspiring appearances by Ted Kennedy and the family moment with the Obamas. The speeches were flat, which is a good thing. The convention was top heavy with radicals Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Jesse Jackson Jr, Ted Kennedy, and Michelle Obama. For it to go off without a hitch is a testament to Democratic discipline.

I am not a Kennedy but I was insulted when Caroline compared Barack Obama to her dad JFK. Note to my daughters; do not compare me to a man that warmly surrounds himself with domestic and foreign terrorists, no matter how inspiring. Barack Obama may share a similar JFK platform, but Obama's inspiration is more comparable to Jim Jones than to a president.

Barack Obama's prominence is the byproduct of those suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome and in dire search of a fix; do not confuse this with greatness. Do you remember the crack epidemic of the 80's? That drug influenced the upper crust of our society to the bowels of civilization. The nation survived that and we shall overcome yet again.

Ted Kennedy's appearance showed true grit, true grit that had nothing to do with politics. The strength of the human spirit was on full display when that cancer fighter mustered the strength to walk on that stage after a painful trip to an area hospital prior to his national appearance. Kudos to the man's strength!

The opening bell was rung by Party boss Howard Dean. His appearance alone is a distraction and he reeks of gutter politics rife with racial-arson and hate. The morning of the convention in Denver, Mr. Dean gave a ridiculous interview on the Morning Joe, a talk show on MSNBC. Dean compared the Republicans to Slobodan Milosevic. listed some memorable comments by the head loon, Howard Dean. For your discernment and enjoyment I include two of them here; "“I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for” and a month later, “This is a struggle between good and evil and we're the good.” - Quotes by the Democratic National Committee boss.

Nancy Pelosi gave a whispering speech pandering to Hillary supporters. Present are many Hillary supporters that believe Hillary Clinton was, and still is, a viable presidential candidate and was thrown under the bus by Pelosi and Dean for The Chosen One. Insult to injury is the 18 million votes that Hillary earned being dismissed by Obama when he chose Biden as VP. Biden garnered approximately 9,000 votes. Agent of change indeed.

Michelle Obama's speech was a scripted attempt at humanizing the Obamas. They even pushed the envelope with including the line "that's why I love my country." A clear attempt to try and cancel out her past unpatriotic comments. Did it work? To those in the Obama camp of course it did. It is a bit too early to determine if the Michelle speech will add to the Obama bounce.

The potential of a negative response is there. Many may believe the "I love my country" line coming from Michelle Obama is as sincere as her husband showing up wearing a flag pin. Contrived? Political expedience? Depending on your answer come and see this New York kid about a bridge spanning the east river.

I'm going to run now it is the second day of the convention and Hillary Clinton is about to saunter on the stage. I wonder if the Obama people have successfully sequestered the P.U.M.A. and Just Say No Deal folks vowing to support John McCain over Barack Obama. These folks are life long Democrats and are willing to cross party lines as a result of the Pelosi, Dean, and Obama shenanigans.

Don't forget folks, Nancy Pelosi has a much lower rating than George Bush.

Chelsea is introducing her Mom, Hillary Rodham Clinton for day two of the DNC 2008.

Barack Obama Chooses Joseph Biden as VP Candidate

By Tony Vega for AC, 0300 hrs August 23, 2008;

Today at 1000 hours, the Obama campaign is scheduled to send text messages out to the media confirming Joseph Biden as the VP selection. Senator Joseph Biden may give the rookie senator some street cred, but his selection still represents potential problems.View more »

For your discernment and enjoyment, a YouTube compilation;

What does Joe Biden think of Barack Obama's hygiene?

What does Joe Biden say about the GOP rival and Barack Obama's experience?

Fellow Democrats agree:

Above video scrubbed, perhaps the bots had their way. So check this one out:

Heck, Barack Obama agrees:

Senator Joseph Biden has no desire to be a vice president. In an interview with Alan Colmes in August 2007 Biden said "I am not running for vice president, I would not accept it if anyone offered it to me. The fact of the matter is I'd rather stay as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee than be vice president."

On Meet the Press, Joe Biden is adamant about not wanting the VP slot and begs not be asked. But states he wouldn't be able to say no to the "first African-American presidential candidate about to make history in the world" Check it out:

How is Barack Obama causing the MSM,and otherwise decent folks to throw Patriotism, common sense, logic, and personal ethical convictions out the window? Forget the anti-Christ stuff, perhaps, we'll do a post on that later. No, it could be the perfected Jedi mind trick. Watch:

One thing for certain folks, we are in for an interesting ride; hold on and vote! If you are an Obama supporter ((((

Did it work? Damn! How does he do it!?

McCain and Obama Bare Their Souls at Saddleback Church

By Tony Vega

On August 16, 2008, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama sat for an unprecedented interview at Saddleback Church, hosted and moderated by Reverend Rick Warren. Both senators handled themselves very well.

Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California interviewed each candidate separately in one-hour sessions. Warren stated both candidates received identical questions so viewers can have an "apple to apple comparison."

Many supporters will claim their candidate of choice as having the more righteous performance at Saddleback Church. I’m sure objective witnesses would testify that experience and patriotism preyed upon inexperience and couched cynicism.

In this "apple to apple" comparison, the core of some key issues was laid bare. The differences between the two candidates were compelling; let’s examine a few:

Rick Warren's first question was, who are the three wisest people you know in your life and who are you going to rely on heavily in your administration?

Barack Obama named his wife, maternal grandmother, and a list of senators.

Many pundits have reported on Michelle Obama’s anti-American rhetoric. After the Tennessee GOP aired a video ad featuring Michelle Obama, Mr. Obama warned, “lay off my wife." For more on that and her derisive comments check out: "Lay off My Wife"

John McCain offered his top three: General David Petraeus, civil rights leader John Lewis, and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman.

Warren asked the men about theirs and America's greatest moral failure.

Barack Obama stated that in “my lifetime” America has not provided ladders of opportunity into the middle class, a failure to look out for those less fortunate, which covers poverty, racism, and sexism.

Barack Obama a black man, a wealthy man just defeated a white woman that also broke economic barriers. He is in a very good position to be the 44th president of the United States. Yes, this all occurred in America during his lifetime.

"For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country" -Michelle Obama, February 2008 (After the success of Barack’s campaign).

John McCain acknowledged the failings of America throughout our existence. McCain also acknowledged that America has been better than any country in the world at devoting herself to causes greater than self.

We should acknowledge and learn from our sins, it is equally important to acknowledge the great achievements of America in order to remain a beacon of liberty and hope.

The candidates were queried about crossing the aisle against their own best interests:

Barack Obama mentioned ethics reform and opposing the war in Iraq. Barack wasn't in the US Senate to cast a vote opposing the war in Iraq!

John McCain listed various issues, over which he crossed the aisle. One that exemplified independence was his vote against President Reagan's decision to send Marines to Beirut.
McCain's dissenting vote was against a president that he was devoted to (and still is). John McCain, as a young maverick demonstrated his logistical skills, and military insight.

Regarding the most gut wrenching decision:

Barack Obama mentioned his opposition to the war in Iraq. Again, he wasn't in the US Senate to officially oppose the war. Votes Obama did cast reveal an extremely liberal politician that craftily used the "present" option rather than making tough decisions.

John McCain mentioned his honorable service during wartime and his imprisonment as a POW. As President, he will be fully aware of the sacrifices America's young men and women will be asked to make in our defense.

McCain has sons that have put themselves in harms way defending America's freedom, including a son that served in Iraq. McCain has a son in the Naval Academy and if elected he could become the first president since Eisenhower with a son at war. McCain obviously has a personal interest in ending this war responsibly and convincingly.

The men were asked: Does evil exist, and if so, do we ignore it, do we negotiate with it, do we contain it, or do we defeat it?

Barack Obama admitted evil exists, began to equivocate and accused us of evil:

“Now, the one thing that I think is very important is for us to have some humility in how we approach the issue of confronting evil, but you know a lot of evil has been perpetrated based on the claim that we were trying to confront evil; in the name of good and I think one thing that's very important is having some humility in recognizing that. You know, just because we think our intentions are good doesn't mean that we’re going to be doing good."

Jeremiah Wright would be proud.

John McCain: “Defeat it!”

Perhaps the most controversial question posed to the candidates was when they believed a baby is entitled to human rights.

Barack Obama claims such thoughts are above his “pay grade.” Despite the fact that as president he would appoint justices that may be in a position to defend those rights. Currently, it is not a higher power determining human rights of babies; governments are still making those decisions. Any president worth his salt will deem it a job requirement.

Obama had to come up with something, after all “above my pay grade” is much better than verbalizing his support for abortion, late term abortions, partial birth abortions, and if the baby actually survives the abortion the failure to support legislation to protect those babies born alive.
Barack Obama supports those very practices and even voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. “Above my pay grade” is a step up for one of the most radical senators that has sullied the national stage.

“Above my pay grade, Obama” and “At Conception, McCain”

John McCain
without equivocation affirmed his belief that a baby is entitled to human rights “at conception.”

Senator John McCain has a 25-year record to back up those words, words that matter.

Lost Boy of Sudan and Current Team Darfur Athlete Lopez Lomong

President Bush and Lopez Lomong, 2008 opening ceremony Beijing Olympics

By Tony Vega

The name "Lost Boys of Sudan" was given by aid organizations that helped resettle Sudanese refugees to the US. The Lost Boys of Sudan are more than 27,000 boys who were displaced or orphaned during the Second Sudanese Civil War, in which approximately 2 million were killed. Many of the boys, predominately Christian, were fleeing persecution by Muslims. When villages were attacked, girls were raped, killed, taken as slaves, became servants, or displaced to other families. Relatively few girls made it to the refugee camps.[1]

Beijing has helped Sudan build its own factories to manufacture small arms and ammunition, the real weapons of mass destruction in the Islamic campaign of ethnic cleansing. Chinese-built helicopter gun-ships reportedly operate from airfields maintained by the Chinese oil companies.[2]

Lopez Lomong was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. He was resettled in the United States through Catholic Charities with Robert and Barbara Rogers, in New York State. A year after becoming an American citizen, Lopez was selected as the US flag bearer at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

On January 1, 1985, Lopepe Lopez Lomong was born in a small village in Southern Sudan. At age six, Lomong and other children were abducted by a government-backed militia as they attended Catholic Mass in the southern village of his birthplace.[3]

Analysis: McCain's Ad Campaign

By Tony Vega

The thought of an inexperienced Barack Obama leading the free world because of his Britney Spears and Paris Hilton celebrity like status (short on substance, independent thought, and skirt) is not that important to a pop culture addicted nation.

Key issue points were lost by the cameo of air-headed celebutards. YouTube - Celeb. Paris Hilton responded with her own video mocking McCain. (Payback is a...well, you know the rest. I'll save it for Ludicrous to finish the phrase).The ironic thing is Paris' energy plan seems to be more substantive than Obama's plan. McCain's campaign picked up on that as well.

Another McCain ad "The One" concludes with the announcement that "He (Obama) may be the one" (that is a concession, albeit factitious) "But is he ready to lead?" Well, obviously, if he is "The One" he is ready to lead...based merely on being "The One." Who writes this stuff?

A couple of weeks ago the McCain campaign aired an ad titled "Obama Love." It displayed how the media is obviously in the tank for Obama. The ad featured clips of media personalities fawning over Obama, "journalists," and pundits, some in tears, and some disturbingly describing a thrill running up his leg. These praises ran the full length of the ad. Is Rick Davis secretly working for the Obama campaign?

The point of how unwarranted and nauseating these Obama accolades are will be lost on many. It will certainly reinforce what the Obamaphiles are saying about their chosen one. Is McCain's ad campaign fumbling? They can recover with a firmer grip on the following issues:

The Energy crisis, the Economy crisis, National security (which doesn't start and end with Iraq & Afghanistan), Health Care, and Patriotism. That's right Patriotism, a concept that should be dear to ALL Americans; A concept that every American should demand in a presidential candidate.

Let's skip Chris Matthews' pathetic man crush that he has on a rookie Senator spewing empty rhetoric. Instead, talk about awe-inspiring emotions one derives from the accounts of fellow Americans that has fought and is fighting to sustain and promote Freedom. Let us remember the meaningful words from leaders inspiring us after 9/11 and how we remained indivisible.

Remind us that Patriotism is not a fleeting thing. Remind us that our symbols are not to be tampered with and NOT to be protested. Protesting our symbols is not a valid form of dissent regardless if you have the right to do so- it is an abuse of that precious right. A hallmark of Freedom is to express a dissenting point of view, but it should never be OK to turn your back on our flag-for it is that symbol, whether flying high or adorned upon your chest, that represents what is great about this nation. Any dissent should be in furtherance of that greatness with allegiance to the flag.

McCain supporters and donors would be better served, more importantly the nation would be better served, if the Obama fantasy videos stop and McCain's campaign starts showing Reality TV. Show images of what this nation would look like if we again fall asleep and move away from the mantra of Never Forget! Show images of what will occur if we don’t stop our dependency on foreign oil, what this nation will look like if we don’t secure our borders, if we don’t succeed in Iraq, if we don’t adequately protect ourselves against radical Islam and elements vying to destroy us.

Show the American people what happens to a store after giving all the contents away, Show that redistribution of wealth is a mere goosestep away from tyranny, show the failed policies of earmarks, not enough spending cuts, not cutting taxes. Let's show Americans what health care really looks like in Cuba! You can see a sample of that here and here.

Hey John, Instead of replaying (glorifying) the Jim Jones like following for Obama and flashing images of Obama’s ridiculous campaign logos, show America the REALITY behind those slogans. Stop with the cute tongue in cheek crap! Use the ammo you have- the truth.

Inform the American people that repeating Obama's chant of "Yes We Can" & "Si, Se Puede!" is not emulating Bob the Builder or a peace loving farm worker from the 70's, but used to inspire present day radical illegal immigrants; Illegal immigrants that rally in this country waving Che Guevara signs, demanding the same rights of those that do respect our flag and National Anthem.

Show the tragic results that Che's Marxist and Guerilla revolutionaries produced! Obama's early influences and late influences share the same ideology that shaped the movements of Che Guevara and his ilk. The E. coli and Salmonella outbreaks are desirable compared to the movements produced by Obama's heroes.

It is not an accident that Obama baptized his children in a church that taught anti-American values. It was not beyond Obama’s intelligence or sight that this place of worship embraced racist theology and Islamic extremists.

It was much more than "inappropriate" that a Texas campaign HQ of Obama's had a Cuban flag emblazoned with Che Guevara's image on display, note there aren't any Bob the Builder images in that office. It is not a coincidence that Obama AND his affiliates don't respect America's flag, or her people. It is a sign, it is evidence of Obama's sustained subversive ideals and why he attracts such fringe elements.

Show the American people what Obama's latest logo really means. It is not just a silly looking Flavor Flav emblem to be worn around the neck. It is a bastardization of the Seal of the President of the United States, which is based on the Great Seal of the United States, it is changing an American Motto (a legal one and long honored); E. Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One). Obama threw out...or rather overthrew the American Motto with, “Vero Possumus” (roughly translated to “Yes We Can”) Che would be so proud.

Let us not engage in smear tactics. No, merely spread the truth. Yes we can!

Barack Obama Receives Illegal Donations from Palestinians

image source; FEC screenshot by

By Tony Vega

The evening edition of WorldNetDaily (WND) publicized a report detailing illegal campaign contributions to Barack Obama. WND reported two Palestinian brothers from the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip donated $29,500 to Obama's campaign.

Bob Biersack, a spokesman for the Federal Election Commission (FEC), confirmed to investigative reporters that donations from foreigners are illegal and donations from individuals cannot exceed $ 2,300 for a single election. The $ 29,500 donation from the Palestinians clearly violates the law on both fronts.

Perhaps Barack Obama's announcement that he is a "citizen of the world" puts him above American law. I'm sure Barack's European compatriots would forgive his Palestinian gifts, equally forgiving will be the American media.
So how do a few brothers from the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip donate nearly $30,000 to Obama, and who are these Palestinian brothers? Well, here is what is reported with supporting resources:

On July 31, Atlas Shrugs' blog reports a reader discovered the illegal donations by perusing the FEC site. Once there she uncovered the Middle Eastern donors’ infusion of cash, dating back to October 2007.

Most folks I spoke to didn't think it probable that a couple of Gaza Strip dudes would raise that much cash for an American election. Then again, most of those folks were not aware of Barack Obama's Gaza Campaign Head Quarters:

Blogger, Debbie Schlussel discovered a third Palestinian brother that also donated to Obama. The third brother is Osama Edwan. The other two bros are Homas and Monir Edwan.

At the time of this writing it couldn't be determined if the third brother that Debbie discovered was a fictitious third party created by the illegal donors. It is possible that the Hamas controlled supporters realizing that their contributions were adding up made some lame attempt to make it appear the money was coming from different sources. That would make sense if they had some vague knowledge of American election law. Regardless if Osama the Obama donor is real or contrived, the Middle Eastern brothers by virtue of their foreign status is not allowed to make such contributions. Can someone please inform Mr. World Citizen?

The Gaza brothers electronically sent their donations to Barack Obama. On the forms, they listed their street as "Tal Esaltan," located in "Rafah, GA."

Rafah is NOT a city in Georgia. "GA" in this case stands for GAZA. Come on folks, can it get any more obvious? Perhaps, when you receive illicit donations with the Left hand, you only read the forms with the Left eye and in Obama's case, the more subversive the better.
The Edwans' donations are listed in official FEC filings and other election filing sites, such as CampaignMoney and

A WND investigation tracked down the Edwans, who are brothers living in the Tal Esaltan neighborhood of Rafah, a large refugee camp in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. The Edwans are a large clan that includes top Hamas supporters.

The brothers initially claimed the money they sent Obama were not donations. They ridiculously claimed they purchased Barack Obama T-shirts, which they peddled to their Hamas controlled brethren and fellow Obama supporters. They alleged the T-shirts sold for a profit at $9.00 a piece. When it was brought to their attention that the Obama campaign sells the shirts for 17 bucks and it was virtually impossible to get the goods shipped to their location due to various blockades, a concession was apparent:

"We don't want to cause any damage to Obama's campaign," was Edwan's reply. Mr. Edwan said he wants Obama to be president.

Unfortunately, the implications are more severe than the purchase of campaign T-shirts. I can only hope and pray that the Obama Head Quarters in Gaza fails. One of Obama's co-chairs in the states is the illustrious Jesse Jackson Jr. Who do you think is running the campaign in the Gaza Strip? Louis Farrakhan, or did Barack finally find a place for Reverend Wright?
