Democrat Barack Obama is seeking to distance himself from statements by his longtime pastor that have aggravated racial divisions in the contentious Democratic primary battle. He is calling for both sides to tone down their rhetoric.
The Illinois senator is using a speech at a site near the nation’s birthplace to present what his campaign said would be a comprehensive take on “race, politics, and unifying our country.” Among other things, the Illinois Democrat was seeking to calm the uproar over racially tinged sermons by his former pastor at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, remarks that have threatened to undercut Obama’s campaign theme of easing the racial divide.

It’s over, the speech, that is.

It is no secret to anyone who reads this blog to know that I am a firm supporter of Israel. I am becoming increasingly concerned with the people around Barack Obama.
We have all heard about how his pastor has honored ‘Calypso Louis’ Farrakhan as a ‘Great Man.’
Now comes Rashid Khalidi [note the wikipedia article leaves out his employment with the PLO], former director of the WAFA, the official Press Agency for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, a Palestinian Terrorist Group, in Beirut, Lebanon from 1976 to 1982…the latter period where our troops were engaged in combat with the PLO.
Here is an example of some of this man’s radical opinions, according to Campus Watch:
When Palestinian violence garners unfavorable publicity, Khalidi’s response it to blame the messenger, not the murderers. Thus, in response to Palestinians lynched two off-duty Israeli officers on October 12, 2000, Khalidi did not critique the perpetrators of this crime, but railed against the “prostitute” and “cynical” media that dared to show Palestinians triumphantly displaying bloodied hands after the killings. In like spirit, he faults not those Palestinians who erupted in joyous street celebrations at the murders of 3,000 Americans on 9/11, but the media for having the temerity to report these occurrences.
More information can be found, including donations to his campaign by former Weather Underground Leader Dr. William Ayers and PLO Operative Rashid Khalidi at Rezko Watch.

I have updated my National page at West Carolina Report, and will start on the others when I get to the office this morning, I overslept, and didn’t get up until 4.30 this morning. Michael Reagan was on a roll last night, and I couldn’t stop listening.
To sum up the info over there, Hillary has written her campaign a $5 million check, the Democrat Party Elites prepare to broker the convention, and tell Joe Lieberman that he is no lobger a super delegate. (Can you say…the fix is in?)
And the Liberal and Moderate Republicans basically tell the Conservative Republicans to shut up.
McCain receives an endorsement from a pro-choice (pro-murder) Republican group, and Illegals march on the left coast for their right to have driver’s licenses…don’t believe me? I have the video over there.

An Open Letter to Senator Harry Reid [Copperhead Dhimmicrat]
Dear Senator Reed:
In my opinion, you have crossed the line with your declaration that we have lost.
Shame on you Senator, you have betrayed your nation, your oath of office, and history will spit on your memory.
Should you decide to act like a man, I have a video for you, which I found posted on Free Republic:

Part One is Here, and Part Two is on my photoblog, because it is mostly in picutres and video. There was very little to comment upon.
I am unhappy with the video quality from photobucket, so I have uploaded the Shuler Video to You Tube.

I went to the Reception held for Congressman Heath Shuler tonight at The Iotla Airport in Macon County, and took many pictures, and two videos, one of Heath’s Opening remarks, and another of a plane taking off into the sunset. The videos and larger pictures will have to wait until I find a fast connect to the internet this weekend, or Monday morning, I’ll stop by WCU and upload them.
Congressman Heath Shuler listens to a constituent.
