Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church who claim the president benefited from Wright’s efforts to help black men who engage in homosexual activity appear respectable in black society by finding them a wife.
The 2003 New York Times story, “Double Lives on the Down Low,” said that though many black men reject “a gay culture they perceive as white and effeminate,” they “have settled on a new identity, with its own vocabulary and customs and its own name: Down Low.”
The Times said that while “there are black men who are openly gay, it seems that the majority of those having sex with men still lead secret lives, products of a black culture that deems masculinity and fatherhood as a black man’s primary responsibility – and homosexuality as a white man’s perversion.”
The Down Low Club at Trinity “doesn’t have meetings, and it isn’t like the Rotary Club,” a source identified for this article as “Carolyn” explained to a WND investigator in Chicago.
“It was more that Wright served as a matchmaker,” said Carolyn, a 20-year member of Trinity who has played a role in church administration and knows the Obamas personally.
“He kept his eye on the young guys coming up in Trinity,” she said, “and if he spotted someone that acted or looked gay, then Wright would give them kind of a guidance counselor-type direction on how to keep down low – how to do the things they wanted to do, but then also getting married and looking ‘respectable’ – being part of black society.”
To Trinity insiders, the Down Low Club was simply known as “the program.”
“That’s the terminology. At Trinity, you’re urged to ‘get with the program,’” explained a male beneficiary of the Down Low Club. “What that means is it’s OK to go ahead and have sex with men, just as long as you ‘get with the program’ and marry a woman, somebody no straight guy would want to marry.”
LBN: I always thought MObama appeared rather masculine...maybe she is one that no straight man would want to marry?? Or perhaps she is a transexual desguised as a woman to keep Obama on the 'down low'?
"I write to you at this time of dire trouble for our country and for Israel", says the renowned rabbi.
As Wednesday night's Romney-Obama debate approaches, a leading rabbi, who has formed the "Rabbis for Romney" group, has written an open letter to the list of mostly Conservative and Reform 613 "Rabbis for Obama", asking them to rethink their support of the incumbent president.
"I write to you at this time of dire trouble for our country and for Israel", begins the impassioned letter and goes on, "I cannot keep silent any longer. The voices of my father and my mother, survivors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, compel me to speak out -- with zeal."
"Last week America was under attack. Our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were slaughtered by Muslim extremists. This was not a spontaneous 'protest' against an admittedly stupid video. This was an organized military assault, coordinated expressly for execution on September 11.
"Likewise, the 'protests' in Cairo at the American embassy where our flag was shredded and the black flaf of al-Qaeda was raised... Reliable sources say the US was forewarned of both attacks -- probably by Israel. But America's State Department ignored those warnings. Why?
"The Obama administration's reactions to these outrages was sadly typical. The very next day, President. Obama incongruously flew off to Las Vegas to raise funds. Lamentably, our government still apologizes for that inane video; made by an Egyptian Coptic.
"Where is the leadership here? What has such ongoing appeasement gotten us? President Obama once promised a 'reset' of America's relationship with the Muslim world. But the reality has been far different. The Islamic world holds us in greater contempt than ever, seeing Obama's America as weak and incapable...."
The outspoken letter was written by Rabbi Dr. Bernhard H. Rosenberg, spiritual leader of Congregation Beth-El, Edison, New Jersey, lecturer at Yeshiva and Rutgers Universities, author of 12 books including the Holocaust Siddur and the Holocaust Haggadah, recipient of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Humanitarian Award and Chaplain of the Year Award from The New York Board of Rabbis for his efforts during and following 9-ll.
"The same signal comes from Obama's latest snub of Bibi Netanyahu -- who was told that Obama did not have time to meet with him when the Israeli Prime Minister arrived in America last week. Meanwhile, he found time to regale on the David Letterman show and also had time to chit chat with Barbara Walters and Whoopie Goldberg on the TV show the View. To his discredit, Obama also extended an open invitation to Egypt's President Morsi."
He asks the Jewish religious leaders, "What are your excuses for President Obama now?" and then sums up the dangers of current foreign policy as he sees them:
"Silence did not work in the 1930s, when the looming evils of Nazism could have been stopped in their tracks. Nor will it work today when Islamists, who deny the Holocaust, threaten the destruction of Israel and all the Jews and Christians therein.
"Why does the United States say nothing about the daily denigration of Jews and Christians by Imams worldwide?
"Why do we tolerate an American media that continues to play dumb when our real interests, and our very lives, are at stake?
"Why does America continue to send money (and excuse outstanding loans) to Morsi's Egypt?
" Why doesn't America compel Morsi to uphold the peace treaty with Israel? To rein in Hamas? To act like a responsible, civil government?
"And of utmost importance, why don't we rabbis come together and insist that the Obama administration express -- in words and in deeds -- their unequivocal support for Israel during this most challenging of times?
"I started "Rabbis for Romney" as a counterweight to 'Rabbis for Obama,' he explains. "My message at first was not political, but the situation has evolved -- or devolved -- into one where the danger to Israel is more paramount than ever. Don't kid yourselves. We are nearing the 11th hour," the letter ends.
LBN: I wonder if these are some of the same rabbi's who offered Amanutjob a gift and met with him in secret last week during the UN General Assembly??
Offering deficit-cutting ideas before his first debate with President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney says he might be willing to reduce income tax deductions used by millions of families for home mortgage (RT @laurenweinstein: RT @laurenweinstein: Romney...
LBN: How do you feel about this?? It might be a good thing during this economic recession/depression, especially with so many facing foreclosures.
Sean Hannity provided a side-by-side comparison of the Hampton University speech on race that Barack Obama gave in 2007 and his speech in 2008 that he gave when he was forced to disavow his pastor, Rev.
LBN: This was a great display of Obama's chameleon persona...which is the real Obama? I think the real Obama is the one we see speaking to 'his people', using a different tone of voice and expressing his racial bigotry. It's pretty obvious why he attended Rev Jeremiah Wrights race baiting church for over 20yrs, until he had to disavow him in 2008.
What this tape really shows is that there is no Barack Obama. The Obama we see is as fake and artificial as the one on the tape. Neither of them is the real Obama and the odds are that we haven’t seen the real Obama yet. What we can see on both tapes is a consummate con artist who learns his lines and manipulates audiences by projecting what they want to see, whether it’s an angry militant or black JFK.
Stephanie Cutter tells CNN that Romney won the debate (October 3, 2012).
She says he won for preparation and "style points", whatever that means...she needs to just admit Romney won for substance and facts, while Obama needed his teleprompter and talking points. Obama couldn't even defend his own policies!
How can Obama anticipate Romney's attacks at Wednesday's Denver debate, and how can Romney get in some memorable zingers without looking mean? The Daily Beast's David Freedlander turned to communications professionals to find out.
LBN: Hopefully Romney wipes the floor with Obama in this debate and the rest...these debates put about 41% of votes up for grabs, last I heard
Fox News, Drudge Report and Daily Caller say 2007 video shows Obama playing the race card and praising former pastor (Conservative media release old video of Obama in failed 'explosive' exclusive - The Guardian http://t.co/7Qb3bKPO...)...
American Crossroads super PAC and its affiliate Crossroads GPS are about to unleash their biggest ad offensive of the 2012 campaign, with $16 million going to one week’s worth of TV and radio ads in eight key presidential states and four Senate...
The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board could be facing a lawsuit because 30 municipalities failed to send absentee ballots to military and overseas voters, a mistake a GAB official downplayed Tuesday afternoon.
LBN: I hope he does and I hope he's successful...though so many activist judges have infiltrated the system, I fear they will deny the request, just like the judge in PA put a hold on the voter ID law in Pennsylvania today.
