  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Obama’s mansion paid for by Saddam Hussein?

Posted by rightwinger on October 29, 2008

Think I’m kidding?  An Iraqi financier that was tied into Saddam’s Regime paid money to Rezko.  Well you know the rest right.  No wonder Obama was against the Iraq War.  Can we trust someone like this with our national security.

From WorldNetDaily:

Just 23 days before a crooked fundraiser helped Sen. Barack Obama buy his Chicago mansion, a billionaire bagman for Saddam Hussein wired millions into the crook’s account. “Barack Obama appears to have personally benefited from funds originating in Saddam Hussein’s regime,” said Mideast expert Daniel Pipes. Former Iraqi official Nadhmi Auchi bankrolled his longtime friend and business partner, Syrian immigrant and Chicago slumlord Tony Rezko, who in turn bankrolled Obama’s political career before being convicted this year of fraud. That much is known. What’s not known is whether any Auchi funds aided Obama’s 2005 purchase of a $1.65 million mock-Georgian mansion in the leafy Kenwood district of Chicago. On the same day, Rezko purchased an adjacent lot from the same seller. In addition, Rezko personally toured the house with Obama before their same-day purchase of the adjoining parcels. He also advised Obama on negotiating his end of the deal.  Obama ended up buying his side of the property for $300,000 below the asking price, while Rezko, through his wife, paid full price, $625,000, for the adjacent vacant lot. Just three weeks earlier, Rezko – who at the time was under indictment and virtually bankrupt – received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Auchi, his “close friend” and partner, who smuggled weapons to Saddam’s regime.

  1. […] say that Obama is from a corrupt Chicago system, but he is not corrupt himself.  Fat chance!  First of all Obama’s house was financed through Rezko who received money from Saddam Hussein.    Remember the old adage follow the money.  No wonder Obama was against the War.  Anyway, […]
