Barack Obama, Carol Mosley Braun, and Iowa--a View from Abroad

Dawn broke sunny in the heartland. It's the final day of Iowa's limelight status, and folks, its a horse race if there ever was one. The Backyard Conservative has Gone West for a little live blogging and precinct walking, and Wilmette knows that you want something more compelling than animal pictures.
I'm sure you knew we wouldn't disappoint. We've found New Zealand Libertarian blogger, Trevor Loudon, who has a big interest in Illinois Senators. Whether he's a Hillary plant, or the genuine article, I'm not sure, but his archives go back to November, 2005. With a zeal that would have done a certain politician from one of Illinois' other neighboring states--Wisconsin--proud, he peels away the shiny veneer of the Left.
Loudon is particularly concerned about Presidential Candidate, Illinois Senator Barack Obama. His series of posts, "Why Do the Communists Back Barack," "American (Communist) Idol-Barack Obama and "Why the Communist Party USA May Decide Your Future"--along with his links--give us a somewhat different perspective on our favorite Senator-in-Absentia.

Mr. Loudon is also doing a series on former Illinois Democrat Senator Carol Mosley Braun, who was later appointed by Bill Clinton as Ambassador to New Zealand. Part I is here and Part II is here.

While Mr. Loudon seems to have missed the fact that Cook County moved on from race-based political judgments some time ago, his view of our State and our politicians is quite interesting on this very political of days.

Obama's "minister" was on Hannity & Colmes early in 2007 where he told Hannity that his "religion" is "revolution theology" and that he got his "religion" from "the Sandanistas". The man also came across as utterly unhinged. So the minister who was so important to Obama's "religious" awakening is an unapplogetic communist. That's funny, the local papers have painted the guy as an everday Christian. Shocking, no?

Not so shocking because the church is well regarded in the community. When the Congregationalists and the E&R churches merged to form the UCC (of which Obama's church is a member)in a nighmare scenario full of late-night parliamentary shenanigans, it became dominated by a bunch of left-leaning ministers. Think they would rat themselves out? No way. I blogged about that church month's ago, and decided a bit later that no one was going to take the church on due to the number of movers and shakers worshipping there.
