Larry Johnson, a Clinton White House Anti-terrorism officer, is making reports that Domestic Terrorist, University of Illinois Education Professor, and the man who gave Barack Obama his only executive experience, William Ayers has and continues to maintain steady contact with Obama Campaign Manager David Axelrod.
Chicago Media Editorial Boards need to get off their wallets and look into this - unless, of course, they already know this and are just fine with it. That would be very bad. Larry Johnson raises some bothersome points about Obama Campaign Chief David Axelrod being in steady communication with Billy Ayers concerning the way to smear scholars taking a peek at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge documents. Billy Ayers would have much to say about speaking to that activity, because it seems he clearly was more than 'just some guy' from Obama's neighborhood. Larry Johnson is looking into this - Chicago Media is not. It sure sounds as if Ayers is talking to Obama's Campaign.
This makes sense given the very Stalinist tone of the Official Obama Campaign in its attempt to smear a Stanley Kurtz who was blocked from study of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge documents at University of Illinois at Chicago and the assault on WGN and Milt Rosenberg.

In the next few hours, we have a crucial opportunity to fight one of the most cynical and offensive smears ever launched against Barack.
Tonight, WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears. He's currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers.
Tell WGN that by providing Kurtz with airtime, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear-merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse.
Call into the "Extension 720" show with Milt Rosenberg at (312) 591-7200
(Show airs from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. tonight)
Then report back on your call at http://my.barackobama.com/WGNstandards
Larry Johnson, a strong Hillary Clinton supporter notes:
I now have two sources confirming that Barack Obama’s Communications Director, David Axelrod has been communicating regularly with unrepentant terrorist and former member of the Weathermen, Bill Ayers, about how to respond to stories trying to report on Obama’s longstanding relationship with Ayers. One of my sources tells me that one person, a TV pundit who wishes to not be named, is talking about this without mentioning Axelrod. This person told my friend:
I predict that the howling and whining we hear from the Obama campaign about Billy Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist who bombed the US. Capitol and has been linked to candidate Obama at least for the last dozen years, will get louder, and more hysterical and more damaging because we will find that not only did Billy Ayers work closely with Barack Obama to fund left wing school schemes in the hands of Maoists (Mike Klonsky) and Neo-Stalinists (Bill Ayers) but also Billy Ayers himself, now, regularly, is talking part in strategy sessions with major Obama advisers as to how to bury the truth about the terrorist and the candidate.”
Another source with direct access to the Obama campaign reports that it is David Axelrod who is fielding these calls. It is astonishing that the Obama team thought they could contain this information. But they will fail. Their fear about Ayers has little to do with his past as a bomber of U.S. Government facilities and more to do with the mismanagement of more than 100 million dollars that was spent by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC).
Larry Johnson also lays out the entire Ayers/Obama mystery so ignored by the Chicago Media.
I think Billy Ayers is a bad guy when he was blowing up buildings and trying to kill his countrymen. He was a bad guy forty years ago when Obama was eight years old. He was bad guy when cynical or leftists politicians, academics, real estate opportunists, lawyers, and foundation weasels white-washed his resume and gave Ayers and his odious wife sinecures at Chicago universities; he was a bad guy when he hatched his radical education reform scam that spent more than 100 million dollars 'improving' a Chicago Public School System that is a national disgrace; he was a bad guy when he gave Obama the only executive experience in his very thin resume; he was bad guy for helping Hugo Chavez; he is a bad guy for continuing to use his Daddy's clout, fortune and connections to undermine the American way of life.
Larry Johnson seems to think Ayers
is a pretty bad guy. Take a look at the link here. You will not get much from the Chicago Tribune, except from John Kass and nothing from the Sun Times, unless it is from Tim Novak.
If Axelrod is talking to Ayers, I think Dave Axelrod is a pretty bad guy as well.
