Hussein's advisers

To get a grip on who someone is, you have to turn to who they associate with. Most of us are familiar with Hussein's buds William Ayers and the Rev "God dam America" Wright, but when we dig deeper we find other interesting things. Here's is what AP's Liz Sidoti writes:

Obama also announced his search committee shortly after clinching the nomination -- Jim Johnson, the former chairman of Fannie Mae, Eric Holder, a former deputy attorney general, and Caroline Kennedy. Within days, the committee went to Capitol Hill to consult with Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Under fire from Republicans and McCain, Johnson abruptly resigned after The Wall Street Journal reported he got home mortgages with help from the CEO of Countrywide Financial Corp. Holder, too, has faced a barrage of GOP attacks; he was the former Justice Department official who vetted President Clinton's oft-criticized 2001 pardon of financier Marc Rich.

Of course the Countrywide scandal, in which Demo Senators Chris Dodd and Conrad got sweetheart financing deals not available to the public, is dying a slow death administrated by the MSM refusal to cover the story. And few will remember, or bring up Marc Rich.

So this is the guy that Eric Holder vetted for Clinton:

In 1983, financier Rich was indicted for evading more than $48 million in taxes, and charged with 51 counts of tax fraud, as well as running illegal oil deals with Iran during the 1979-1980 hostage crisis. During his last week in office, President Bill Clinton pardoned Rich, who had fled the U.S. during his prosecution and was residing in Switzerland. Clinton's eleventh-hour move,

Hussein claims to be for change, yet time and again he returns to the past and the highly questionable actions of Democrats.

Igor Gouzenko

Monday PM I posted a comment regarding the "still" lack of belief by Gollywood, the MSM and academia that we actually had communist spies in the government....

You might call it the inconvenient truth....

Claudia from Toronto sent me the above name and asked if I had heard of him. I hadn't, but a little Google revealed this. My thanks to the lady from the north.

Igor Sergeyevich Gouzenko (January 13, 1919, Rogachev, Soviet Union – June 28, 1982, Mississauga, Canada) was a cipher clerk for the Soviet Embassy to Canada in Ottawa, Ontario. He defected on September 5, 1945 with 109 documents on Soviet espionage activities in the West.

Gouzenko's defection exposed Joseph Stalin's efforts to steal nuclear secrets, and the then-unknown technique of planting sleeper agents. The "Gouzenko Affair" is often credited as a triggering event of the Cold War. [1]

What I find fascinating is how poorly he was received..proving that we Yanks and Cannucks are closer than we know.

Gouzenko walked out of the Embassy door carrying with him a briefcase with Soviet code books and deciphering materials. He initially went to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but the RCMP officers on duty refused to believe his story. He then went to the Ottawa Journal newspaper, but the paper's night editor was not interested, and suggested he go to the justice ministry, where nobody was on duty. ....

Even once the RCMP expressed interest in Gouzenko, it has been alleged that the Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King initially wanted nothing to do with him. Even with Gouzenko in hiding and under RCMP protection, King reportedly pushed for a diplomatic solution to avoid upsetting the Soviet Union, still a wartime ally and ostensible friend. Documents reveal that King, then 70 and weary from six years of war leadership, was aghast when Norman Robertson, his undersecretary for external affairs, and his assistant, H. H. Wrong, informed him on the morning of September 6, 1945 that a "terrible thing" had happened. Gouzenko and his wife Svetlana, they told him, had appeared at the office of Justice Minister Louis St. Laurent with documents unmasking Soviet perfidy on Canadian soil. "It was like a bomb on top of everything else", King wrote.

The evidence provided by Gouzenko led to the arrest in Canada of a total of 39 suspects, of which 18 were eventually convicted.... His information also likely helped in the investigation of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg in the U.S. Gouzenko, being a cipher clerk by profession, likely also assisted with the Venona investigation, which probed Soviet codes and which eventually led to the discovery of vital Soviet spies such as Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Kim Philby, Anthony Blunt, and John Cairncross (the so-called Cambridge Five), as well as Alan Nunn May.

A movie, "The Iron Curtain" was made in 1948. I am sure if it were made today Igor Gouzenko would be the villain.

That says much about our current cultural affairs.

Hussein played the race card today..

We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?"

Actually "they" won't have to. Hussein has been doing it for us on an almost daily basis. And he never mentions that he beat Hillary by getting 90-95% of the black vote. I mean all those blacks voting for a black was just because he was the best candidate, right??

In the meantime, Big Lizard hisses in with a scary thought.

So how long will it be before a series of thuggish, racist e-mails, street-mailings, and YouTubes crudely attacking Barack Obama really does materialize? My guess is that it will wait until the election itself looms; possibly one week beforehand, just like the DUI hit on George W. Bush in 2000.

Why wait? For a very good reason: The perpetrators of that series of attacks do not want there to be enough time to discover the actual source of the "attacks"... which will originate from some radical leftist group hoping for a "backlash" against McCain.

Obama as much as begs for a "false-flag" operation by his phraseology: "They're going to try to make you afraid. They're going to try to make you afraid of me." Translation: If you see any racist or xenophobic ads, you will know that they put them up. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain... blame McCain, blame McConnell, blame the racist, fascist Republicans!

I am about 70% convinced that somebody on the Left will attempt just such a dirty trick.

Would they do that?

Well, we know they will try and move negative stories about McCain further up the Google chain. (See my morning post.) That, of course, is not the same, but it indicates a "win at any cost" mindset.
