Gamaliel ,org ( this is where the whole thing began it is their group)

Or this one


Wild Thing's comment.......

Some are saying "Deliver us, Oh God.” etc., but it is clear that many aren't by the fact that "Oh God" has two syllables while "Obama" has three syllables that is the number you can hear. Also, a little over a minute in, the mic moves close to someone and the name Obama can be heard. So on some of the chants it is both and on others it is clearly Oh God and not Oh Obama. There has been a little debate around the internet which it is or both. Like I said I can hear both on some chants.

This video is up on the site of It was taken at a Democracy Day Action in Washington DC in 2008. Also on their website they have a picture of Obama and under that it says,

“Barack H. Obama, former GAMALIEL ORGANIZER is the 44th President of the United States!
Mr. President, THANK YOU for ORGANIZING HOPE for America and the World!”

Under that is a link for viewing his history with the organization.

They claim to include 1,600 congregations in their membership.

They boast, among other things, about receiving stimulus money for highway repairs.

If President Bush had kids praying to him, the New York Times would have it on the front page.

More about the Gamaliel Foundation.....


Gregory Galluzzo, a former Jesuit priest, is the Executive Director of the Gamaliel Foundation. In 1980 Galluzzo co-founded, along with his wife Mary Gonzalez, a Chicago Latino activist organization called the United Neighborhood Organization (UNO). Today, Ms. Gonzalez is the Gamaliel Foundation’s Director of Western Territory. UNO, also modeled after Alinsky’s methods, is known for using aggressive organizing and confrontational tactics to push for change.

The President of the Board of the Gamaliel Foundation is Ann Smith, who in 1985 became the first black female to win a statewide election in Illinois when she was voted onto the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois.

The Gamaliel Foundation receives grants from the Bauman Family Foundation, the Public Welfare Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Ford Foundation, George Soros’s Open Society Institute, and others.

History of the Movement: This type of community organizing began in Chicago in 1938. Saul Alinsky created the “Back of the Yards Community Council”. The organization operated in the shadow of Chicago’s stock yards. The community was beset with poverty, political corruption, gangs, disease, deteriorating housing and inadequate schools; but most of all it was beset with a sense of powerlessness. The organization successfully engaged people to change the conditions of the community. Its motto was, “We shall decide our own destiny.”

History of the Gamaliel Foundation: The Gamaliel Foundation was originally established in 1968 to support the Contract Buyers League, an African American organization fighting to protect homeowners on Chicago’s Westside who had been discriminated against by banks and saving and loan institutions. In l986, the Foundation was reorganized as an organizing institute providing resources to community leaders in the efforts to build and maintain powerful organizations in low income communities. The Gamaliel Foundation has grown from three to more than forty-five affiliates in seventeen states and in three provinces of South Africa.

Gamaliel and Barack Obama


The same separatist, anti-American theology of liberation that was so boldly and bitterly proclaimed by Obama’s pastor is shared, if more quietly, by Obama’s Gamaliel colleagues. The operative word here is “quietly.” Gamaliel specializes in ideological stealth, and Obama, a master student of Gamaliel strategy, shows disturbing signs of being a sub rosa radical himself. Obama’s legislative tactics, as well as his persistent professions of non-ideological pragmatism, appear to be inspired by his radical mentors’ most sophisticated tactics. Not only has Obama studied, taught, and apparently absorbed stealth techniques from radical groups like Gamaliel and ACORN, but in his position as a board member of Chicago’s supposedly nonpartisan Woods Fund, he quietly funneled money to his radical allies — at the very moment he most needed their support to boost his political career. It’s high time for these shadowy, perhaps improper, ties to receive a dose of sunlight.

The connections are numerous. Gregory Galluzzo, Gamaliel’s co-founder and executive director, served as a trainer and mentor during Obama’s mid-1980s organizing days in Chicago. The Developing Communities Project, which first hired Obama, is part of the Gamaliel network. Obama became a consultant and eventually a trainer of community organizers for Gamaliel. (He also served as a trainer for ACORN.) And he has kept up his ties with Gamaliel during his time in the U.S. Senate.

The Gamaliel connection appears to supply a solution to the riddle of Obama’s mysterious political persona. On one hand, he likes to highlight his days as a community organizer — a profession with proudly radical roots in the teachings of Chicago’s Saul Alinsky, author of the highly influential text Rules for Radicals. Obama even goes so far as to make the community-organizer image a metaphor for his distinctive conception of elective office. On the other hand, Obama presents himself as a post-ideological, consensus-minded politician who favors pragmatic, common-sense solutions to the issues of the day. How can Obama be radical and post-radical at the same time? Perhaps by deploying Gamaliel techniques. Gamaliel organizers have discovered a way to fuse their Left-extremist political beliefs with a smooth, non-ideological surface of down-to-earth pragmatism: the substance of Jeremiah Wright with the appearance of Norman Vincent Peale.

So this is the RFK memorial. Wasn't he killed by a muslim, too. The whole damn family is/was demented.

All of these touchy-feelie assholes are going to get us all killed.

Tom's right, buy Ammo as much as you can carry. We are going to need it.

Another ACORN type group. I would say that they are at least as crazy as the Koresh bunch at Waco. Maybe Holder should send in the ATF.

It seems that the election of obama has opened the door and shined lights on the oddest, strangest people we have ever seen. It has also shined the light on criminal doings and radicals.
Not only has the obama rise to power shined lights on un-American activities, it has empowered and fiananced them.

Keep buying that ammo.
