Rev. Jeremiah Wright Calls Italians "Garlic-Nosed", Obama Co-Chair McPeak Blames New York And Miami Jews,
Wright Builds Retirement Mansion
Rev. Jeremiah Wright
More divisive and inflammatory words from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the pastor and spiritual leader of
Wright's statements just keep popping up and up. No doubt if he were the pastor and spiritual leader of any Republican politician, it's safe to say that that politician would see his or her career come to an abrupt and screeching halt.
Wright lashed out not only at Italians, but he said America is run by "white supremacists." CNN (that would be not FOX News for you Obamaniacs):
Rev. Jeremiah Wright, also came under fire this week when reports surfaced that he had written an article for Trumpet Magazine, run by his daughters, in which he said that “white supremacy is clearly in charge in America.” The article also quotes him referring to Italians’ “garlic noses,” and characterizing Jesus’ crucifixion as “a public lynching, Italian-style.”
"(Jesus') enemies had their opinion about Him," Wright wrote in a eulogy of the late scholar Asa Hilliard in the November/December 2007 issue. "The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses at the Galileans.
"From the circumstances surrounding Jesus' birth (in a barn in a township that was under the Apartheid Roman government that said his daddy had to be in), up to and including the circumstances surrounding Jesus' death on a cross, a Roman cross, public lynching Italian style. ..." Wright wrote.
In other controversial Obama news (this just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it?)...
Gen. Merrill McPeak
Obama's Campaign National Campaign co-chairman, General Merrill A. McPeak, is also causing controversy and embarrassment for Obama. McPeak said there is no peace in the Middle East, placing blame on "New York and Miami Jews." Israel National News:
General Merrill "Tony" McPeak, a former chief of staff in the United States Air Force who is a candidate for secretary of defense in a potential Obama administration, claimed that efforts to bring peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority failed because there is no US-written "playbook" to create peace.
An interviewer asked General McPeak "So where's the problem? State? White House?" McPeak pulled no punches. "(The problem rests in) New York City. Miami. We have a large vote here in favor of Israel. And no politician wants to run against it…nobody wants to take on that problem. It's just too tough politically. So that means we can't . . . you can't develop a Middle East strategy. It's impossible," he said.
Wright's future $1.6 million dollar; 10,340 square foot crib
Finally, it appears Wright will be well-taken care of in his retirement. FOX News is reporting having uncovered documents that Wright is building a dream mansion of a home. (And yes, this would be FOX News for you Obamaniacs):
A two-week FOX News investigation, however, has uncovered where Wright will be spending a good deal of his time in retirement, and it is a far cry from the impoverished Chicago streets where the preacher led his ministry for 36 years.
FOX News has uncovered documents that indicate Wright is about to move to a 10,340-square-foot, four-bedroom home in suburban Chicago, currently under construction in a gated community.
While it is not uncommon for an accomplished clergyman to live in luxury, Wright’s retirement residence is raising some questions.
...documents obtained from the Cook County Register of Deeds, Wright purchased two empty lots in Tinley Park, Ill., from Chicago restaurant chain owner Kenny Lewis for $345,000 in 2004.
Documents show Wright sold the property to his church, Trinity United, in December 2006, with the proceeds going to a living trust shared with his wife, Ramah.
The sale price for the land was just under $308,000, about $40,000 less than Wright’s original purchase two years earlier.
Public records of the sale show Trinity initially obtained a $10 million bank loan to purchase the property and build a new house on the land.
But further investigation with tax and real estate attorneys showed that the church had actually secured a $1.6 million mortgage for the home purchase, and attached a $10 million line of credit, for reasons unspecified in the paperwork.
Because churches are classified as private businesses, Trinity isn’t required to reveal its intended use for the line of credit. Nor, because it’s a non-profit entity, is it required to provide that information to the IRS.
Wright did not respond to repeated calls for comment, and Trinity United refused to discuss the specifics of the home it is building for him and the way the deal was financed.
Keep drinking the Kool Aid, Obamaniacs, keep drinking the Kool Aid.

Are you a real Doctor? Can you write me a prescription for medicinal marijuana? I would prefer a "Chronic" blend. Please let me know. Thanks.
Here is even more info about it...The question becomes one of judgment, character, integrity, honesty and intelligence.
If I were to believe Obama’s defense that he didn’t, and still doesn’t, know what was, and still is, going on at his church for 20 years, then, in my opinion, he must not be very observant nor intelligent, and does not possess sensible judgement. Therefore he cannot be qualified to be the POTUS, in my opinion. If I do NOT believe Obama, then his integrity, character and honesty is woefully insufficient to be the POTUS, in my opinion.
Obama went to Harvard Law School (they don’t let just anybody in), where he became the first African-American president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review. He graduated magna cum laude in 1991. Now do you think he is NOT aware of what his church and ex-pastor are all about? Be AFRAID! Be VERY AFRAID!
Barack Obama’s political FRAUD against the American People continues…

I agree with everything you wrote above.
Where I'm at now is trying to decide which will be less painful. One term of Obama or two terms of Hillary.
Much depends on who McCain picks as his VP, note my column 2 posts above.
Am working on a piece about which will be less painful, 4 years of Obama which will be the same as Jimmy Carter's one term. I can bite the bullet and take that.
But 8 years of Hillary? Oh, god no! And yet we have The Pilonidal Cyst out there encouraging Repubs to vote for her in the upcoming primaries and caucuses. I'm beginning to think the Pilonidal Cyst is a Clinton operative, and I'm not kidding.
