In the current presidential campaign, everyone has been trying to either connect Barack Obama to unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers or trying to play down the connection. There are some who are even trying to claim that there is no connection at all.
I say that there is a connection, a solid connection, and it is the only connection that really matters.
When Ayers and his monogamous companion, Bernadine Dohrn, surfaced and faced prison terms, the prosecution failed to convict on a technical violation because the FBI blew their case against them by illegally wiretapping their terrorists' plots without a warrant.
That means that they were guilty but they didn’t have to serve the time for their crimes. Years later, Ayers unrepentantly admitted their guilt in a New York Times article that was printed on the same day America was attacked by other terrorists.
My conclusion is that Bill Ayers is guilty of being a murderous terrorist and would be in jail had the prosecution not blown the case.
Therefore, if Ayers were in jail, he wouldn’t have been able to promulgate Barack Obama into Chicago politics and their ultimately wouldn’t be a Barack Obama running for President of the United States.
Yes, there were other figures who helped to foist Barack Obama into the political world, but if you remove Bill Ayers from the equation, the path Obama took wouldn’t have been there.
Barack Obama minus Bill Ayers does not equal a presidential nomination.
