    GEORGE ORWELL ONCE SAID: “Sometimes the first duty of intelligent men is the restatement of the obvious.”

    At times....'obvious' may not be obvious....

    1. Barack Obama spent his formative years in Indonesia. “In October 1967, Obama and his mother moved to Jakarta to rejoin his stepfather. Obama, his mother and his stepfather initially lived in a rented house at 16 Kyai Haji Ramli Tengah Street in a newly built neighborhood in the Menteng Dalam administrative village of the Tebet subdistrict in South Jakarta for two and a half years, with his stepfather working on a topographic survey for the Indonesian government.[19][20] From January 1968 to December 1969, Obama's mother taught English and was an assistant director of the U.S. government-subsidized Indonesia-America Friendship Institute,[21] while Obama attended the Indonesian-language Santo Fransiskus Asisi (St. Francis of Assisi) Catholic School around the corner from their house for 1st, 2nd, and part of 3rd grade.[19]” Early life and career of Barack Obama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    2. “It was obvious. Mr. Obama’s father and stepfather were Muslim; Mr. Obama attended a madrassa in Indonesia; as a boy, he studied the Koran; he has openly admitted that the “most beautiful sound” is the Muslim call for evening prayer (not, say, the “Star-Spangled Banner”); he frequently refers to Islam as a “revealed religion” while denigrating Christianity; and he claims that America is a “post-Christian” nation.” KUHNER: Jeremiah Wright can sink Obama - Washington Times



    3. Obama spent 21 years learning at the feet of Jeremiah Wright. “Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian. “He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.” Jeremiah Wright: I “Made It Comfortable” For Obama to Accept Christianity Without Having to Renounce Islam (Video Report) | The Gateway Pundit

    a. “But [Jeremiah] Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity’s guiding principles–what the church calls the “Black Value System”–included a “Disavowal of the Pursuit of Middleclassness.’” Obama's pastor Jeremiah Wright: Former Muslim


    4. Senator Obama slips up and says “my Muslim faith” in an interview with George Stephanopoulus:
    ‘OBAMA: And what was the first thing the McCain?s campaign went out and did? They said, look, these liberal blogs that support Obama are out there attacking Governor Palin.
    Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come–
    STEPHANOPOULOS: Christian faith.
    OBAMA: — my Christian faith. Well, what I’m saying is that he hasn’t suggested–
    STEPHANOPOULOS: Has connections, right.
    OBAMA: — that I’m a Muslim. And I think that his campaign’s upper echelons have not, either.

    5. Obama supported movements aimed at throwing out pro-American tending governments in Egypt, and Libya….yet when pro-democracy movements in Iran took to the streets…”Yet instead of coming to their aid, Obama validated the America-hating regime's rigged election of the totalitarian theocrat Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as freedom-seeking revolutionaries were gunned down in the streets.”

    6. Valerie B. Jarrett is a Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama. She is also the Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls. Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett | The White House

    a. Chicago businesswoman Valerie Jarrett has earned all sorts of nicknames as an aide to President-elect Barack Obama — from "First Friend" to "big sister" to "the other half of Obama's brain." 2-min Bio: Valerie Jarrett - TIME


    b. Valerie Jarrett was born in Shiraz,Iran.

    This sure looks like a 'JDLR' situation.....

    More evidence?

    "The U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” for humanitarian and health reasons, a source close to the the Obama administration told TheBlaze…

    The negotiations are allegedly part of the ongoing discussions with the Egyptian government to resolve the crisis plaguing the Middle East, the source told TheBlaze. Calls to the State Department for comment referred us to the Department of Justice, and nothing has been confirmed."

    Turning loose the mastermind of the 93 WTC bombings is part of what he calls "flexibility".

    Are you going to stop talking about Obamas "formative years" after November?

    I've never found conservatives trying to shut down speech.


    Interesting, huh.

    :clap2:

    Good try.

    Suggesting that your harping on "facts" that no longer matter, is not the same thing as attempting to force you to shut up. Feel free to continue to talk about Obamas childhood as if it adds any value to any converstation.

    Facts do matter even if some are willing to just dismiss them. We need to send Obama home in November or those facts you easily dismiss will come back to haunt you. I hope we never find out. ;)

    Facts only matter if they have relevance to the conversation. The chemical formula of hydrogen peroxide is H2O2, the negitive square root of 16 is -4, the capital of California is Sacramento. Those are all facts, but they add no value to the current conversation.
