Obama Marches To A Different Drum

Who is Barack Obama? That seems to be the question that many Americans want to know the answer to. The other question that Americans want answered is: How do we find out who Obama is when he doesn't answer the questions? Barack has shown the people how to eloquently answer questions without really answering the question. So, how do we know who Obama is? One way is to take a deeper look into who he aligns himself with, what they believe, and how long they have been actively believing those beliefs.

We have taken a little time to observe things that his "spiritual adviser" has said, but we have not spent much time looking into who Rev. Wright has aligned himself with. Remembering that Barack has been a part of the Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years is very important. Why? When Obama says he looks to someone as a spiritual adviser and also looks at them as an uncle, one might say that who is aligned with that person would also have a profound impact on Barack also.

Rev. Wright has been a long time supporter of and for Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam. How much of a supporter? Enough to have been noted as having a helping hand in the organization of the Million Man March (MMM) in October of 1995. Wright has written in great detail describing how it was "a once in a lifetime, amazing experience." If Rev. Wright was so passionate about the MMM, who could deny that Obama also had a helping hand? Barack was at a time in his life when he was tirelessly working as a community activist trying to make his name known before running for a spot in the U.S. Senate two years later. Was he "advised" by Wright to help in the organizing of the MMM?

Rev. Wright has also accompanied Farrakhan to Libya to meet with Muammar al-Qaddafi, considered by many to be America's arch enemy. Farrakhan considers al-Qaddafi to be a "trusted friend," "brother," and "fellow struggler in the cause of liberation for our people." While it is unsure if Wright holds al-Qaddafi to the same respect that Farrakhan does, it is to say that they are close if they are out traveling and meeting together. Also, Rev. Wright has also been noted as sending a letter to Saddam Hussein, a deceased enemy to America, calling him a "visionary" whose demise would "mean a setback for the goal of unity [among Muslims]."

So what does this say about who Barack Obama is? Simple. He has surrounded himself with people like Wright, Farrakhan, and possibly al-Qaddafi for many, many years. He has used the guidance of these men, even to the effect of writing a book, The Audacity of Hope, based on a sermon that Wright preached. He has a high regard for some of these men, even to a point of modeling his life after them to some extent.

Obama does "March" to the beat of a different drum. One that does not beat for the progression and advancement of America. America needs a VOICE for change, just not the "change" he would bring.

Larry Sinclair alleges that on 6th and 7th November 1999 in Chicago, Illinois he met Barack Obama for a social evening which included drinks in a lounge, followed by a drive around town in Larry's hired limousine during which Obama supplied cocaine, smoked crack through his own glass pipe while accepting fellatio from Sinclair. The next day Obama took the initiative to visit Sinclair’s hotel room in Gurney, Illinois for a “quickie” version of the previous night’s activities.

These scenes are reminiscent of the Oprah Winfrey’s show in which she featured J.L. King’s book “Men On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of Straight Black Men Who Sleep with Men”

This story has produced some newsworthy reactions most of which can be described as a cover-up:

1. A virtual internet and media lynch mob composed mainly of Obama supporters is bent on discrediting Sinclair with allegations about his homosexuality, his convictions for check fraud in the 1980’s and his mental and emotional stability.

The most noteworthy spokesman of this campaign of vilification is Andres W. Lopez an attorney for the Obama campaign in Puerto Rico who is a member of the campaign’s National Finance Committee. He appeared on Puerto Rico’s most popular TV magazine show WAPA TV’s “SuperXclusivo” on April 10th 2008 to denounce Sinclair as a major headache and distraction for the Obama campaign and implied that Larry was working for the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Sinclair has hit back against some of the critics with law suits for defamation in the DC district court filed by his attorney Montgomery Sibley most recently noteworthy for his defense of the “DC Madam”.

On 1st April, 2008 U.S. District Court Judge Henry Kennedy, Jr., granted a motion for discovery in the matter. The aim of the Sinclair-Sibley legal strategy is eventually to discover Barack Obama on oath.

2. Larry Sinclair took a polygraph test in February confident that he would pass and he challenged Obama to do the same. The test was arranged by an internet site best known for pornography and anti-Clinton political satire.

The raw computer readings showed that Larry Sinclair passed the test with flying colours. But two testers hired by re-interpreted the readings to claim the readings showed deception. One of the testers was Edward I. Gelb who has been exposed by specialists in the field as claiming a phony Ph.D. refused to publish the full results or the video of the test and in many other respects breached the contract they had with Sinclair. He claims that he and his attorney are in possession of information that the Obama campaign bribed to gerrymander the test and the presentation of the results. closed down for a while and has gone completely silent on the matter.

3. Many in the mainstream media are aware of the allegations. Some of them have interviewed Larry Sinclair and visited his home. He has provided them with everything they asked for in terms of his criminal record, his health records and family history.

Some of them have indicated that their publishers will not proceed because they do not want to be accused of racism or of causing problems for the first viable black candidate. Some of them have asked for more proof such as the name and access to the limousine driver who witnessed the events of November 6th 1999.

Larry Sinclair has said the driver will testify in legal proceedings. But he wishes to protect him from interference from the Obama campaign, from the kind of death threats to which Sinclair has been subjected and to protect his family from the kind of vilification that Obama supporters have visited on Sinclair’s parents, siblings and neighbors. However, Larry Sinclair is willing to provide assurances to the media through his lawyer.

4. When Larry Sinclair first reported his allegations to the Obama campaign in September 2007 he wanted Obama to correct his claim that he had stopped taking drugs in his teens and had never taken crack.

Over the following months until December, 2007 he was contacted several times by Donald Young who appeared to be Obama’s emissary. He was the choir master at the Trinity Church of Christ which was under the direction of Pastor Jeremiah Wright and where Barack Obama is a member of the congregation. Donald Young informed Larry Sinclair that he, too, had a sex and drugs relationship with Barack Obama similar to his.

At first he suggested that Obama was seeking the assistance of Jeremiah Wright in making a statement acknowledging his use of crack cocaine as recently as 1999. But he had second thoughts in early December 2007. Donald Young was murdered in his appartment at Christmas 2007.

Larry Sinclair notified the Chicago police of his contacts with him but received no acknowledgment. Subsequently he has submitted a sworn affidavit which has so far not been acknowledged by the Chicago Police.

Larry’ Sinclair’s original video on YouTube has received more than 800,000 hits and his blog is in the top ten percentile on WordPress. Links to all his radio interviews can be found at his blog together will all contact details for the media.
