More On Those Obama Associations

It's hard to find a politician in America that has as many controversial associations as Sen. Barack Obama. Obama always professes innocence of these people when his association with them is brought to public light. Last week, the National Enquirer reported that Terence Bean, the only openly gay member of Obama's finance committee raised between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obama's presidential campaign. Bean served as sole trustee of a foundation which operated the largest gay porn studios in the world. This week, the National Enquirer reports that Obama's childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a bisexual pedophile. In his tell-all book, "Sex Rebel: Black", Davis admits to seducing a thirteen year-old girl, voyeurism, exhibitionism, bisexuality, rape and sadomasochism. Obama writes of Davis, a self-avowed communist, as a father figure in his book, "Dreams From My Father". "He would read us poetry whenever we stopped by his house, sharing whiskey with Gramps out of an emptied jelly jar," Obama writes of Davis. "As the night wore on, the two of them would solicit my help in composing dirty limericks." "Since Frank Davis has been identified as the author of Sex Rebel: Black, Obama has been extremely secretive about the true nature of his experience with the self-admitted deviant," the Enquirer reports. You'll never get the truth out of Obama, but I suspect that Davis is the man who introduced Obama to domestic terrorist William Ayers. Ayer's Weather Underground organization was closely allied with the Black Panthers, a radical black group with which Davis associated when he lived in Chicago.

Not defending Obama, AI, but the National Inquirer is not exactly the most reputable newpaper in the country. A little better than the Indy Star, but not by much!

Both are verified, garyj. You can't challenge the facts contained in those two articles. Just two items the mainstream media wouldn't report on Obama because it doesn't look so good.

From the New York Post's Page Six column:

"ONE of the "bundlers" who has raised $50,000 to $100,000 for the Barack Obama presidential campaign is Terrence Bean, who once controlled the biggest producer of gay porn in America.

Bean, the first gay on Sen. Obama's National Finance Committee, is the sole trustee of the Charles M. Holmes Foundation, which owned Falcon Studios, Jock Studios and Mustang Studios, the producers of about $10 million worth of all-male pornography a year.

Chuck Holmes, who founded Falcon in 1972, died of AIDS in 2000. San Francisco's new gay and lesbian community center was named after Holmes two years later, thanks to a $1 million donation from his estate.

The naming of the building for Holmes was controversial because Falcon Studios profits from the sale of "barebacking" videos, featuring anal sex without condoms. Falcon insists that the videos were made before AIDS hit in the early 1980s and that the studio is in the forefront of promoting safe sex.

Bean, a real-estate developer based in Oregon, was the CEO of Conwest Resources, the holding company that owned Falcon, before Holmes died. The company was sold in 2004 but, now called 3 Media, continues to pay off a note to the foundation.

In 2002, Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongowski returned a $15,000 contribution from Conwest to avoid the "taint" of the porn connection. Bean told Page Six yesterday, "I asked the company to donate, and they did. To avoid the appearance of anything, he [Kulongowski] returned it."

Bean also said, "I never had anything to do with running the company . . . Chuck became a friend of mine, and I got him interested in philanthropy."

An Obama spokesman told Page Six: "Mr. Bean does not own the company [Falcon]. He is a regular contributor to state and federal candidates, including Republican Senator Gordon Smith and Arizona Congressman Jim Kolbe, and has even donated to the Log Cabin Republicans - who endorsed John McCain."

Wow...the National Inquirer? Well, they're known for accurate news stories--I like the way you take it and make it legitimate though.
