TRINITY CHURCH MEMBERS REVEAL OBAMA SHOCKER!
‘Matchmaker’ Rev. Jeremiah Wright ‘provided cover for gays’
By Dr Jerome R. CORSI, WND
After nearly four years in office, many Americans still express frustration that much about Barack Obama remains a mystery as establishment media remain incurious about the Democratic president, while seemingly ready to dispatch crack investigative teams at a moment’s notice to probe into the personal lives of Republican figures such as Sarah Palin. Largely ignored in 2008 was research by the Hillary Clinton campaign based on contacts developed with members of the church Obama attended for two decades, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. This is the first of a series of articles WND has developed from months of in-person interviews with church members who have known Barack and Michelle Obama over many years. The sources requested that their identities not be published because they believe their disclosures would put their security at risk.
NEW YORK – Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living “straight” lives in public.
It’s within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a “matchmaking service” for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama.
Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church who claim the president benefited from Wright’s efforts to help black men who engage in homosexual activity appear respectable in black society by finding them a wife.
The 2003 New York Times story, “Double Lives on the Down Low,” said that though many black men reject “a gay culture they perceive as white and effeminate,” they “have settled on a new identity, with its own vocabulary and customs and its own name: Down Low.”
As Barack Obama is pressured by Gay Rights Groups and others to come out of the closet on the issue of gay marriage recently, Sinclair News believes 2012 will reveal much about the “Real Barack Obama.” In 2008 many in the media and the Obama campaign organized Internet warriors went to great lengths to try and claim neither Obama nor the Obama campaign engaged in using friends or associates to seek out information or prevent information from being disclosed or discussed in the media or public. That claim has recently been shot full of holes by Obama’s spiritual advisor and mentor” the Rev. Jeremiah Wright in an ‘on the record’ interview given to Author Edward Klein (Edward Klein is a seven-time New York Times bestselling non-fiction author. He is also the former foreign editor of Newsweek and former editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine. Klein frequently contributes to Vanity Fair and Parade, and currently lives in New York, New York.)
Jeremiah Wright claims Obama ally offered $150,000 bribe in 2008 to shut up
The above linked article from Ed Morrissey at HotAir.com points out that Barack Obama not only knew about Wrights past sermons in 2008, Obama went so far as to personally ask Wright to “shut up” until after the 2008 November election.
In his on-the-record interview with Klein, Wright claims that an Obama ally offered him $150,000 to keep his mouth shut and stop preaching until after the election, in excerpts published by the New York Post today:
‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”
“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.
“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”
“He offered you money?”
“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”
“How much money did he offer you?”
“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.
