Photo from 2001, while Obama served on the Woods Fund
Board with Bill Ayers. Maybe its time for Obama to
disown his terrorist friends?
Here's what Obama's
pal Bill Ayers and his slime ball friends were up to during
the time John McCain was a prisoner of war...
November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour
for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the
Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free
Press as telling a University of Michigan audience: "I
would think that if you understood what communism was, you
would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would
someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the
Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to
achieve peace in Vietnam."
Fonda made the following statement at the University
of Texas: "We've got to establish a Socialist economic
structure that will limit private profit-oriented
businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on
the way our present governmental leaders react. We must
commit our lives to this transition ...... We should be very
proud of our new breed of soldier. It's not organized but
it's mutiny, and they have every right."
--Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971
From 1972: "I am not a do-gooder, I am a
revolutionary. A revolutionary woman."

Obama's pal and associate, the "english teacher",
as he described him in a recent debate, Bill Ayers and his
communist revolutionary Weather Underground terrorist
Some of you may have seen parts of this before, but I've
added some new stuff and rearranged it quite a bit. Be sure
to check out the latest addition regarding Ayers' group
being trained by KGB agents while in Cuba. It's a
long read but an important one if you really want to know
what kind of people Barack Obama has selected to associate
himself with. ie, they weren't just "domestic terrorists",
they were revolutionary communist "domestic terrorists" who
actually allied themselves with the Viet Cong. They were
only against the war because they wanted South Vietnam to
fall to the North. In fact, both Bill Ayers and his wife
Bernardine Dohrn, to this day, openly admit they're
communist, yet Hannity, Limbaugh and nearly every other
popular conservative pundit refuses to call them such and
get into these sorts of 'details'!
Fortunately, as an organization, the Weather
Underground didn't kill anyone, other than three of their
own in the NYC townhouse explosion. But they definitely
From David Horowitz's
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground
accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse
while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended
to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an
event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers.
Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been
"The bomb was intended to be planted at a
non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum
casualties upon detonation."
From David Horowitz's
"On October 20, 1981 -- long after the Weather Underground
had ceased to exist -- former Underground member Kathy
Boudin and her soon-to-be husband, David Gilbert, were
accomplices in the robbery of a Brinks armored car in Nyack,
New York. In the course of that heist, one Brinks guard and
two Nyack police officers were murdered. Also involved
in the robbery was Judith Clark, who had served a prison
term for her participation in the 'Days of Rage.' Boudin
hired attorney Leonard Weinglass, a law partner of her
father, to defend her in the case.
Weinglass arranged for a plea bargain whereby Boudin pled
guilty to one count of felony murder and robbery, in
exchange for a prison sentence of twenty years to life. She
was paroled in 2003, however, over strong opposition from
New York State police. Gilbert remains in New York's Attica
State Prison, having refused to bargain.
In 1985, former Weather Underground members Susan
Rosenberg (who also was implicated in the Nyack robbery) and
Linda Evans were apprehended while transporting 740 pounds
of explosives which they both acknowledged were slated for
use in additional bombings. Rosenberg was sentenced to 58
years in prison, Evans 40; President Bill Clinton
pardoned both women in January 2001."
The 1981 Former Weather Underground members/Black
Liberation Army Brinks truck robbery/murder:
"David J. Gilbert, 37, rented the vehicle that same day
in the Bronx. Gilbert was a long time member of the
Weather Underground and a fugitive from the state of
Colorado where he faced charges of assault and possession of
explosives. The passenger in the front seat of the U Haul
was Kathy Boudin, on the run from the law since the
townhouse explosion in 1970. The couple had dropped off
their one-year old child with a babysitter in the morning
and was waiting for the return of the red van."
"In the back of the red van were Cecilio 'Chui' Ferguson,
35, Samuel Brown AKA Solomon Bouines, 41, Samuel Smith AKA
Mtayari Sundiata, 37, and Donald Weems AKA Kuwasi Balagoon,
35. There were others present, but it has never been proven
who, or how many. All the men in back of the van were
members of a group they called 'The Family.' Most of them
had ties to the Black Panthers or the Black Liberation Army,
radical political groups that had many violent
confrontations with police during the 1970s."
"At approximately 3:55 p.m., Paige, a 24-year Brink's
veteran and his partner, Joe Trombino, 48, exited the doors
to the Mall rolling out the moneybags on a hand truck. They
walked over to the Brink's truck and began to load up the
bags onto the rear deck. Simultaneously, the red van pulled
up and the rear doors swung open. One of the suspects, armed
with a shotgun, ran to the front of the truck and
immediately fired two blasts directly at the bulletproof
windshield. The guard in the front seat ducked just in time
and was unhurt.
Another suspect, wearing a ski mask, opened up with
his M-16 automatic rifle before his feet even hit the
pavement, striking Paige in the neck, arm and chest. He was
Joe Trombino fired just one shot before he was hit
several times in his upper arm and shoulder. The bullets all
but severed his arm off his shoulder. "I've got no arm!" he
screamed. But Trombino would survive that day, only to
perish years later in another terrorist attack at the World
Trade Center on September 11, 2001."

ON THE MORNING OF THE ATTACKS on the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon, along with a million other
readers of the New York Times including many who would never
be able to read the paper again, I opened its pages to be
confronted by a color photo showing a middle-aged couple
holding hands and affecting a defiant look at the camera.
The article was headlined in an irony that could not have
been more poignant, "No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives."
The couple pictured were Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,
former leaders of the 1960s’ Weather Underground, America’s
first terrorist cult. One of their bombing targets, as it
happened, was the Pentagon.
"I don’t regret setting bombs," Ayers was quoted in
the opening line of the Times profile; "I feel we didn’t do
enough." In 1969, Ayers and his wife convened a "War
Council" in Flint Michigan, whose purpose was to launch a
military front inside the United States with the purpose of
helping Third World [Maoist-communist] revolutionaries
conquer and destroy it.
Taking charge of the podium, dressed in high-heeled
boots and a leather mini-skirt – her signature uniform –
Dorhn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against
"Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly
of the beast."
Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised
three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles
Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops.
Referring to the helpless victims of the Manson Family as
the "Tate Eight" (the most famous was actress Sharon Tate)
"Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate
dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork
into a victim’s stomach! Wild!"
Today William Ayers is not merely an author favored by
the New York Times, but a Distinguished Professor of
Education at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
His Lady Macbeth [Bernardine Dohrn] is not merely a
lawyer, but a member of the American Bar Association’s
governing elite, as well as the director of Northwestern
University’s Children and Family Justice Center.

This next one is from WorldNetDaily:
Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to
Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website. Obama served
on the board with Ayers, who was a Weathermen leader and
has written about his involvement with the group's bombings
of the New York City Police headquarters in 1970, the
Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972.
"I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do
enough," Ayers told the New York Times in an interview
released on Sept. 11, 2001, "Everything was absolutely ideal
on the day I bombed the Pentagon," Ayers wrote in his
memoirs, titled "Fugitive Days." He continued with a
disclaimer that he didn't personally set the bombs, but his
group set the explosives and planned the attack.
A $200 campaign contribution is listed on April 2, 2001
by the "Friends of Barack Obama" campaign fund. The two
appeared speaking together at several public events,
including a 1997 University of Chicago panel entitled,
"Should a child ever be called a 'super predator?'" and
another panel for the University of Illinois in April 2002,
entitled, "Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?"
The charges against Ayers were dropped in 1974 because of
prosecutorial misconduct, including illegal surveillance.
Ayers is married to another notorious Weathermen terrorist,
Bernadine Dohrn, who has also served on panels with Obama.
Dohrn was once on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List and was
described by J. Edgar Hoover as the "most dangerous woman in
America." Ayers and Dohrn raised the son of Weathermen
terrorist Kathy Boudin, who was serving a sentence for
participating in a 1981 [Brinks truck] murder and robbery
that left 4 people [actually 3, 2 police officers and 1
Brinks truck guard] dead.

"Sara Jane Olson and former fugitive Bernardine Dohrn
chatted before Dohrn was to lead a panel discussion about
conspiracy prosecutions of political activists in 2000.
Olson (former Symbionese Liberation Front captor of Patty
Hearst) has been sent back to prison for her role in a
murder committed during a bank robbery, but **Dorhn and
Ayers never had to serve a day in prison for their deeds in
the Weather Underground, thanks to bleeding heart judges who
threw the case out of court on a technicality."--source
**"Dohrn once was on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List.
She served seven months in prison for refusing to cooperate
with a grand jury investigating a 1981 armored truck robbery
in Nyack, N.Y., in which two police officers were killed."
"All charges against him [Bill Ayers] were dropped
because of prosecutorial misconduct during the long search
for the fugitives. They later became legal guardians of
Chesa Boudin, the son of former Weathermen David Gilbert and
Kathy Boudin, after his parents were arrested for their part
in the Brinks Robbery of 1981.
"During his fugitive years, Mr. Ayers said, he lived in
15 states, taking names of dead babies in cemeteries who
were born in the same year as he. He describes the
typical safe house: there were usually books by Malcolm X
and Ho Chi Minh, and Che Guevara's picture in the bedroom;
fermented Vietnamese fish sauce in the refrigerator, and
live sourdough starter donated by a Native American that was
reputed to have passed from hand to hand over a century."
"Mr. Ayers, who in 1970 was said to have summed up the
Weatherman philosophy as:
'Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and
apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents,
that's where it's really at,' is today distinguished
professor of education at the University of Illinois at
And he says he doesn't actually remember suggesting that
rich people be killed or that people kill their parents, but
'it's been quoted so many times I'm beginning to think I
did,' he said."
"He also writes about the Weathermen's sexual
experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The
Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes
having had different sexual partners, including his best

Bill Ayers, TODAY, April 6, 2008, begging to debate
communism vs capitalism with Sean Hannity! Yet Hannity,
O'Reilly, Limbaugh and nearly every other conservative
commentator FAILS to mention that these people were and
still are revolutionary communists. Instead, they describe
them as simply "domestic terrorists". Seems nearly everyone
these days is afraid to use the 'C' word! Even in this
extremely rare case where one of them actually admits it.
Bill Ayers, April 6, 2008:
"Imperialism. I’m against it, and if Sean Hannity and others
were honest, this is the ground they would fight me on.
Capitalism played its role historically and is exhausted as
a force for progress: built on exploitation, theft,
conquest, war, and racism, capitalism and imperialism must
be defeated and a world revolution—a revolution against war
and racism and materialism, a revolution based on human
solidarity and love, cooperation and the common good —must
We begin by releasing our most hopeful dreams and our
most radical imaginations: a better world is both
possible and necessary.
Note: Ayers is very likely quoting Bob Avakian,
chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, with the
phrase 'both possible and necessary' in regards to a
communist overthrow of the US government. See

The three following excerpts are from the same August
2001 Chicago Magazine article in which this photo appeared.
In Sept 2001, Ayers did that more famous interview for the
New York Slimes (Times):
"In 1980, Ayers and Dohrn turned themselves in. (The
first words Ayers's father said to him were, "You need a
haircut.") By then they had had two children together, and
the bombing conspiracy charge against the couple had been
dismissed due to government misconduct.
Dohrn plea-bargained to charges of inciting to mob action
and resisting police officers. She was sentenced to three
years' probation and a $1,500 fine. Ayers was not charged.
Even then he showed a way with words:
'Guilty as hell, free as a bird--America is a great
country,' he said."
"'Essentially, you must see the student before you as a
locus of energy,' he says. 'He already has a heart, a soul,
a mind, interests, and dreams. You need to help him shape
those interests, pursue those dreams.' Ayers is
distinguished professor of education at the University of
Illinois at Chicago, where two years ago the university
named him Senior University Scholar, an award given to
outstanding faculty members."
"'I think there will be another mass political movement,'
he predicts, 'because I believe that the kind of injustice
that is built into our world will not go quietly into the
Article: No Regrets, Chicago Magazine, August 2001.
"In July 1969, Dohrn, Eleanor Raskin, Dianne Donghi,
Peter Clapp, David Millstone and Diana Oughton, all
representing 'Weatherman', as Dohrn's faction was now
called, traveled to Cuba and met with representatives of
the North Vietnamese and Cuban governments."
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"FBI files from 1976, recently made public under the Freedom
of Information Act, confirm the connections between
Weatherman, Havana, and Moscow. Weatherman leaders like Mark
Rudd traveled illegally to Havana in 1968 to engage in
terrorist training. There, camps set up by Soviet KGB
Colonel Vadim Kotchergine were educating Westerners both in
Marxist philosophy and urban warfare."
