RUSH: This hypnotic induction that the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons has put out, I've now double-checked this. The people most susceptible to neurolinguistic programming are young people and highly educated people. They're considered to be especially susceptible to hypnosis. Now, I find it interesting, too, that many Jewish voters are supporting Obama. He is a candidate who has been endorsed by Hamas, has been called The Messiah by Calypso Louie Farrakhan, has been endorsed by Rashid Khalidi -- and of course the chairman of the parliament of Iran. The parliament leader in Iran has also endorsed Obama, and so maybe it is hypnosis.
When you watch his thing tonight, I want you to watch it with a new perspective. I want you to watch it in a different context. I want you to watch it in the terms of understanding socialism as explained as a very benevolent thing and something that benefits everybody. I guarantee you, you will hear Obama in an entirely different light. Now, speaking of this guy Khalidi. The Los Angeles Times has video of Obama praising Rashid Khalidi, who is a professed supporter of Hamas and Palestinians. He hates Jews, and he hates Israelis, and he hates Israel. The LA Times did a story on this back in April. There was a dinner honoring this guy, and Obama toasted him, and they won't release the video!
Now, bloggers are offering laid-off LA Times workers money. The LA Times laid off 75 people yesterday. A bunch of people are offering a lot of money to former LA Times workers to somehow release this tape. The mainstream media is not interested. This is huge! The media, in the tank for Obama, is suppressing it. The more it gets out that it's being suppressed and the more people desire to see this and hear about what it is, it's going to pose a big problem for Obama as we've now got, what, six days to go before the election. It's a serious thing who this guy is. They've been able to keep a lot of it under wraps. Here is, by the way, speaking of that, an Associated Press video report of a Palestinian, Ibrahim Abu Jayab, campaigning for Barack Obama.
REPORTER: Like many of Barack Obama's supporters, Ibrahim Abu Jayab is working the phones in the final days before the election in an effort to court undecided voters. (phone rings) But Abu Jayab himself won't be casting a vote for his candidate. He's making his calls from his home in the Gaza Strip.
REPORTER: He says he thinks Obama can bring peace to the Middle East. The 24-year-old college student learned a few words of English and cold-calls random Americans, leaving messages asking for their support.
JAYAB: I am Abu Jayab from Gaza Strip.
REPORTER: He's hoping the effort shows the world that there are young people in Gaza who want peace and are doing everything they can to achieve it.
RUSH: So we've got a guy in Gaza, the Gaza Strip making cold calls for Obama! He doesn't know much English so he's obviously calling in his native tongue. I don't know what it is, but who the hell is he calling, to do cold calls for Obama? (impression) "Abu Jayab from Gaza Strip," and then after that what does he say? "Vote for Obama! Vote Obama! Votobama! Votobama!" Probably that. "Votobama! Votobama! Votobama!" Who's paying for this? Have you checked your credit card lately, folks? (laughs) Have you found, like one woman did, $174,000 charged to your credit card? Oh, yeah! Mark Steyn has the story. One woman, just one, had $174,000 charged to her credit card. People using not her name, but just her credit card number. She ended up not being charged for it, but the Obama people got the money, and nobody knows where it's coming from. This is just one example; this is just one person.
"John McCain's campaign is demanding that the Los Angeles Times release a video of a party for a prominent Palestinian activist that Barack Obama attended in 2003. The Times described the going-away party for former University of Chicago professor, and Obama friend, Rashid Khalidi, in a story in April. The story reported that Palestinians thought they might have a friend in Obama because of his friendships in that community, despite the fact that his positions have never been particularly pro-Palestinian," says Ben Smith of The Politico as I read from his account here.
"[T]he video could, among other things, show how Obama responded to a poem recited at the party accusing Israel of 'terrorism' and warning of consequences for US support for Israel, which [McCain spokesman Michael] Goldfarb described as 'hate speech.' 'The election is one week away, and it's unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job...'" Now, there's also something interesting about this tape. This party in 2003 features testimonials, encomiums, by many of Khalidi's allies, friends, and buddies. Obama is there. He was an Illinois state senator. Bill Ayers was supposedly there in 2003. It was sponsored by the Arab-American Action Network, AAAN, which had been founded by Khalidi and his wife Mona, formerly a top English translator for Arafat's press agency.
Now, the LA Times has the video, and they are sitting on it, and they will not release it. Now, who knows? We're left now to speculate why they won't release it, beyond media bias, beyond being in the tank. Maybe they don't want see it. Obama is crafted this whole thing, "Ayers is just a guy lives in my neighborhood. Oh, I thought he was rehabilitated." Well, here, if he's there and on video in 2003, just five years ago. That puts the lie to everything Obama said about the guy. Plus, you add to the content of what this dinner was about, celebrating a Jew hater! And if Bernardine Dohrn happened to be there? They all signed the guest book or something, maybe not a guest book. The signatures are said to be on some acknowledgement of greatness for this Khalidi guy, and he is a friend of Obama's. He's not some guy who just happens to live in the neighborhood. So the McCain campaign is now demanding that the LA Times release this.
