Ayers, Annenberg, The Mafia, and Barack Obama.
The stuff about Obama's link to Ayers has gone through the rounds and as I read their mutual association with The Annenberg Challenge and The Annenberg Foundation I had to go back to my notes.



Annenberg, Annenberg.....



Moses Annenberg and his son Walter who just died recently.



Probably no fortune in America was built on a sturdier foundation of cooperation with organized crime and the Mafia than that of Moses Annenberg. A newspaper circulation man by trade and a gambler to boot, Moe Annenberg rose from poverty in the slums of South Side Chicago to accumulate the largest estimated individual income of any person in the nationthanks to mob money. ......

Moe's "genius," in fact, was muscle. His roster of sluggers reads less like a publishing staff than a muster of public enemies. A typical Annenberg employee was Frank McErlane. Former Chicago journalist George Murray later described the Annenberg-McErlane relationship: "McErlane went on to become the most vicious killer of his time. Moe Annenberg went on to become father of the ambassador to the Court of St. James."

So here we have supposed lefty domestic terrorist Ayers getting paid by a mobbed up if not mob created foundation.....zzzzzzz. :crazy:

In another post I had a similar flashback about the Al Smith dinner that had me scratching my head.

I've been researching history of such things for years; time and again I see these prominent foundations built on dirty money and

I see the Bronfman foundation listed on PBS, another name with heavy mafia links and booze running in the 20's. Many of these crooks were interconnected and linked to those who tried to overthrow FDR. Anneberg's "racing wire" would later be linked to Jack Ruby.

I wonder what a systematic study of these "philanthropic" institutions would turn up?

3. There is actually a story behind that....
I initially wanted my name to be "happydreamsatleast" but I messed up entering the info and it came out happydreams.

I've digested this stuff over many years with periodic episodes of fear, panic etc. I have been surveiled, assaulted in the street, computer hacked and info stolen. The reality of what I have found has still not entirely sunk in. The stuff on Annenberg is mild compared to some of it. I now know that WWI was deliberately controlled for max profits. An industrial region of Germany was deliberately left intact throughout the war that, if it had been destroyed, would have ended the war in a week.

Most of my knowledge comes from researching the players in the FDR coup and their link to Nazi Germany; it is a real horror story.

Annenberg Gift a Point of Light, Bush Says

The New York Times
AP March 4, 1990

President Bush, describing himself as a longtime supporter of the United Negro College Fund, used his best-known term for private charity in praising the gift of $50 million by Walter H. Annenberg to the consortium of private black colleges.

President Bush, describing himself as a longtime supporter of the United Negro College Fund, used his best-known term for private charity in praising the gift of $50 million by Walter H. Annenberg to the consortium of private black colleges.

"Our Administration has stepped up support for historically black colleges and universities, the endowment concept there," the President said, predicting that Mr. Annenberg's generosity would be a challenge "that will bring on well-deserved support from others."

"It's most generous, and one of the most brilliant thousand points of light I can think of," he said.

Mr. Annenberg, the 82-year-old former United States Ambassador to Britain and builder of a sprawling publishing empire, said today he hoped the donation would raise the educational aspirations of young black people.

In remarks to The Los Angeles Times, which, along with The New York Times, reported the plan in today's editions, Mr. Annenberg said, "Unless young blacks are brought into the mainstream of economic life, they will continue to be on the curbstone. The key to this problem is education." "Black colleges have got to be supported," Mr. Annenberg continued. "The entire country has to get behind this. Foundations, corporations and private citizens. We can't just leave this for the Government to do."

Mr. Annenberg was expected to announce the gift Sunday at his estate here, where President and Mrs. Bush are weekend guests. Mr. Bush is the honorary chairman of a three-year capital drive by the consortium.

Now compare this with the Bushies decades long effort to disenfranchise black voters among other racist tactics. :crazy:
