Introduction: What follows is a summary of the results of my extensive research and/or investigation into Senator Obama’s personal and career background, which I completed, on November 3, 2008, (two days prior to the general election) as a means of educating myself prior to casting my ballot. Also included is a list of unanswered questions and numerous concerns relating to his lack of executive experience, seemingly shady background and association with radical individuals and/or organizations (Tell me who you hang around with and I’ll tell you who you are!)-You Decide:
Summary: Over the last month (24/7) I, while keeping an open mind, took on the arduous and sometimes challenging task of conducting my own intensive research and/or investigation into each Presidential candidate’s background as a means of educating myself prior to casting my ballot.
In the process of accomplishing my task I have discovered that, although both candidates seem to have skeletons in their closets, I continue to have many more concerns about casting my ballot for Senator Obama, even-though I am a registered democrat, because I continue to have numerous unanswered questions regarding his background (e.g., who he really is, where he came from and, most important, what he stands for, etc.).
Along with a candidate’s knowledge, leadership skills and abilities, I also consider their honesty, integrity, character, judgment and moral values to be just as important, especially when I am casting my ballot for a candidate that will be our next President and who, among other demanding duties and responsibilities, will also be charged with setting the example for all of us to emulate and follow.
I am also concerned that over the years our society’s moral values seem to have hit rock bottom and sadly I attribute this to be a direct result of us electing individuals who, through their own actions once elected, have proven to lack leadership skills, along with little or no moral values, which I believe to this date continues to negatively affect our image here at home and, just as important, in other countries around the world that look up to us and expect us to set a positive example for others to follow.
For these reasons electing a President who has a proven track record that encompasses excellent leadership skills, character, integrity and high moral values, which includes honesty, trustworthiness and above all, transparency is a must for me. These were all set in concrete for me over a period of approximately forty-four years, after experiencing the tragic results of electing individuals into the highest position in our country who, through their own actions, have proven to have had hidden agendas, which turned out to be self serving and not in the best interest of the American public and ultimately our country.
I believe that this happened mainly because as candidates they knowingly and purposely misled the American public by promising them everything under the sun, even-though in their own hearts and minds they knew that the majority of their promises were both unrealistic and unachievable. During their campaigns these candidates also made a concerted effort not to say or do anything that might rock the boat and subsequently raise too many eyebrows before being elected, which would not only destroy their chances of getting elected, but of accomplishing their hidden agenda(s).
On one hand, although I may be proven wrong in the future, we seem to have a candidate whose actions, for the most part, have historically been transparent and although he may not be an eloquent and/or a charismatic speaker he does seem to have a proven track record of being honest and trustworthy. He also seems to have a track record of saying and/or doing what’s on his mind and in his heart, which includes being man enough to admit his mistakes and/or poor judgment decisions that he may have made in his long career as a public servant. All this without worrying about whether or not others may think less of him for doing so. And, most important, he seems to consciously continue to make decisions and/or take actions that are considered to be in the best interest of his constituents and our country.
On the other hand, although I again may be proven wrong in the future, we have a candidate who’s personal and/or career actions have not been as transparent, along with having a seemingly shady background, but comes across as being an extremely eloquent and charismatic speaker who promises all of us everything under the sun and goes out of his way to say only those things that he knows his audience wants to hear, which in this case is the American public.
Additionally, he also seems to be more concerned about his own interests instead of those of his constituents and our country, which I believe is overwhelmingly substantiated and/or supported below-You Decide:
Note: Senator Obama’s Infomercial that aired, on October 29, 2008, did nothing to change my mind regarding the numerous concerns that I had about him and as a matter of fact it actually confirmed them-You Decide:

Which Promises Will Obama Attempt First?–Posted on CBSNews.com-By Wyatt Andrews-On February 11, 2009:
Lessons learned: Over the years Americans have come to realize what happens when we have elected individuals into this most important position in our country who tended not to be totally transparent in both their personal and career backgrounds and have been proven to be less than honest and trustworthy after being elected, which has turned out to be tragic not only for the American public, but for our country/republic.
Question: Have the Soviet’s former KGB operatives brain washed Americans and what does this have to do with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, terrorist threats here at home and abroad, our current financial meltdown and, most important, our historical Presidential election?
In 1985 during an interview with G. Edward Griffin, Yuri Bezmenov, a former Soviet KGB Operative who defected to the US in 1968 revealed the Soviet’s strategy for the subversion of the US and Canada.
He also revealed that this subversion process had been in place in the US and Canada for the past twenty-five (25) years and was carried out in four distinct stages, which are: Demoralization, Destabilization, Crisis, and Normalization.
The following video contains Yuri Bezmenov’s interview with G. Edward Griffin, which was conducted in 1985, approximately seventeen (17) years after his defection to the US:

Note: Although I am a registered Democrat, after conducting my own month long extensive research and/or investigation into Senator Obama’s personal and career background, I now believe that the following questions must be answered before I can even think of casting my ballot for Senator Obama-You Decide:
#1: Is it true that Senator Obama is not constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President and Commander-In-Chief or our armed forces because he is not a “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution?
Lawsuit filled with the United States District Court for Eastern District of Pennsylvania by Attorney Philip Berg, on August 21, 2008, requesting legal proof of citizenship (e.g., original (vault) copy of Birth Certificate, with the State of Hawaii’s official seal, etc.), which to-date has not been provided.

I. Barack Obama, Forever Sizing Up:Posted on The New York Times–By Jodi Kantor-On October 25, 2008:
These are pertinent excerpts from the above article and/or blog post:
“But in the Oval Office, Mr. Obama would have a new set of deficits. Just 47 years old and only four years into a national political career, he has never run anything larger than his campaign. He began his run for president while he was still getting lost in Washington, a city he does not yet know well. His promises are as vast as his résumé is short, and some of his pledges are competing ones: progressive rule and centrist red-blue fusion; wholesale transformation and down-to-earth pragmatism.”
“Barack Obama’s lowest moment as a community organizer in the 1980scame when he brought the executive director of the Chicago Housing Authority to Altgeld Gardens, a decrepit housing project, to hear complaints about asbestos. Seven hundred residents grew restless waiting for the tardy director. When he finally appeared, the meeting grew so raucous that the director fled after 15 minutes, to chants of “No more rent!”
“Mr. Obama’s message of change can be hard to pin down, and he has spent his entire career searching for the right way to fulfill his desire for broad social renewal.
First he became a community organizer, thinking change would flow from citizens upward; then he tried the law, which, as he learned from teaching legal history, was a highly imperfect instrument. Since then he has set his sights on changing government institutions, one higher than the next. Even in the Senate, he told a reporter, it was possible to have a career that was “not particularly useful.”
“Critics have used the Rezko incident to question Mr. Obama’s reputation as a reformer, to argue he has few core beliefs. They cite a proposal he made in the Senate for stringent reporting requirements concerning nuclear plant leaks, which he then softened after Republican colleagues and energy executives complained. The bill died in committee. Or the time he joined a bipartisan coalition onimmigration reform but backed away when labor groups protested. That legislation collapsed, too.”

III. Sen. Obama’s Militant Muslim Brother Abongo Is a Luo Activist:
#4: Is Senator Obama blatantly lying about his Muslim past and his ties to Islamic and/or terrorist individuals and/or groups?
The following book, articles and/or blog posts and videos seem to answer this question-You Decide:
This is one of Khalid Al-Mansour’s books, which reveals Senator Obama’s ties to radical Islamists:
I. “The Mind and the Mindless – Will the West Rule Forever”
The Khalid Al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour “was raising money for” Obama’s expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black American (né Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal, CAIR’s largest individual donor.
Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem, and he wrote a booklet titled “Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia.” (Both Obama and Al-Mansour deny Sutton’s account.)
The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-styled “amir” of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA’s “amir” is Siraj Wahhaj, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)
The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign’s first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust, with Jamal Said, another un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial.
Asbahi has ties to CAIR’s Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another un-indicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.
The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign’s second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network.
Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty Muslimsincluding such notorious figures as CAIR’s Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society’s Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: “You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work.”
Second, Obama’s ties to the Nation of Islam:
Louis Farrakhan, who calls Obama “the Messiah.”
Obama’s long-time donor and ally Antoin “Tony” Rezko partnered for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Muhammad, a son of NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family “millions of dollars over the years.” Rezko also served as executive director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that, without Ali’s permission, exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.
Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s esteemed pastor for twenty years, came out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an NoI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI’s leader, as one of the “giants of the African American religious experience.” Wright’s church celebrated Farrakhan for his having “truly epitomized greatness.”
Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him “the hope of the entire world,” “one who can lift America from her fall,” and even “the Messiah.”
That Obama’s biography touches so frequently on such unsavory organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause.
How many of our politicians have a single tie to either group, much less seven of them?
John McCain charitably calls Obama “a person you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States,” but Obama’s multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.
Islamic aggression represents America’s strategic enemy;Obama’s many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to serve as America’s commander-in-chief.”
