And who did William Ayers, co-creator of the Challenge, help select as the new director of the board for this program? Why, Barack Obama, of course. Barack Obama was the first Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Obama served on the board for eight years until the Challenge ended in 2003. Bill Ayers was intimately involved in the Challenge over this same time period, raising and spending at least $110 million in an effort to bolster a “radical” (Ayers’ word) reform program in the Chicago Public Schools from 1994 to 2001.
(CNN) – President Barack Obama is responsible for the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement, according to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. “It would not have happened but for his class warfare,” Giuliani said in Washington on Friday. “And remember, as it gets worse and worse – because it’s going to get worse and worse – where it came from: Barack Obama. Obama commented on the booming Occupy movement in October, saying it “expresses the frustrations that the American people feel.”
SDS was the precursor to the violent Weatherman Group which in turn has been reborn in the OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.
FBI FILE: Bernardine Dohrn led the Weatherman faction in the SDS fight and continued to be a leader afterward. In July 1969, Bernardine Dohrn, Ted gold, Carl Davidson, Robert “BO” Burlingham, Gerry Long, Eleanor Raskin, Diohne Donghi, Peter Clapp, Mary Wozniak, David Millstone and Diana Oughton, all representing “Weatherman”, as Dohrn’s faction was now called and hard core members of the SDS, traveled to Havana Cuba and met with representatives of the COMMUNIST North Vietnamese, the Viet Cong and Cuban governments for 8 full days.
Bernardine Dohrn was a principal signatory on the group’s “Declaration of a State of War” in 1970 that formally declared “war” on the U.S. Government, and completed the group’s transformation from political advocacy to violent action. Dohrn also co-wrote and published the subversive manifesto Prairie Fire in 1974, Dohrn clearly stated support for Communist ideology, In the late 1970s, the Weatherman group split into two factions — the “May 19 Coalition” and the “Prairie Fire Collective” — with Dohrn and Ayers in the latter. Once a “Commie’ always a “Commie.”
Bernardine Dohrn is more a threat to the US Government than Bill Ayres ever thought of being, she is the brains behind the Domestic Terrorist group the “Weatherman” and is directly linked to Sen. Barack Obama. During the last years of their underground life, Dohrn and Ayers resided in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago (surrendered in 1981), where they used the aliases Christine Louise Douglas and Anthony J. Lee. From 1984 to 1988, Bernardine Dohrn was employed by the prestigious Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin . .
Barack Obama entered Harvard Law School in late 1988, during his summers, he returned to Chicago where he worked as a summer associate at the law firm of Sidley & Austin from 1988 to 1989, this is the same Law Firm where his new best friend Bernardine Dohrn, the Leader/Founder of the “Weatherman Group”, was already employed.
By 1995, Barack Obama had known Bill Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn at least eight years since their shared involvement in the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, if not longer. Bernardine Dohrn, was once labeled “the most dangerous woman in America” by none other than J. Edgar Hoover. It is unclear whether Obama knew the former fugitive Dohrn through Sidley & Austin but there is no doubt that, by the time Obama joined Sidley & Austin as a summer associate, Obama had known Bill Ayers for two years through their involvement in Alliance for Better Chicago Schools in 1987.
Charges against Ayers were dropped, because the FBI used (so-called) national security wiretaps that could not be used legally in criminal cases. Barack Obama launched his political career at Dohrn’s & Ayers’ home on Kimbark Ave Chicago IL in 1995. From 1999 to 2002, Barack Obama served with Ayers on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago. In response to criticism of their relationship, Obama has said he was 8 when Ayers was bombing buildings (along with his wife Bernardine Dorn).
Former FBI agent Willie Reagan said, “I spent seven years of my life hunting down people, who described themselves as revolutionary communists and were involved in bombings.” Reagan, who infiltrated the Weather Underground in New York, said he witnessed members of the group making bombs. “At some point, Obama knew of his background (Barack and Michelle Obama worked with Dohrn, Ayres’s wife, in 1988 at the same Law firm in Chicago) and should have repudiated him, not later when he is running for president.”
Noel, who worked the Weather Underground case in San Francisco, also questioned Obama’s reaction to questions about the issue, saying, “I have a problem with Obama minimizing the relationship and saying it has nothing to do with anything. Because having done background investigations for security clearances for years, you look into a person’s character, his associates, his loyalty and so forth.”
Noel noted that Ayers was a directing force of the Weather Underground. His wife-to-be, Bernardine Dohrn, headed that organization. Chesa is the couple’s adopted son and has lived with them since he was 14 months old. His parents, former Weather Underground members Kathy Boudin (paroled in 2003) and David Gilbert, were/are maximum-security inmates in the New York state prison system, incarcerated for their roles in a 1981 Brink’s robbery in upstate New York, in which a guard and two police officers were killed.
