Further Details of Obama Church Scandal

with one comment

In March I first reported on the criminal activity taking place out of the Triple Rock Baptist Church when Obama was a “community organizer” and church member back in the 1980s upon his first arrival in Chicago .  I have been lucky enough to talk with a “Yvette” a choir member at that church at the time who has since left.   

According to Yvette, the Reverend James was quite a powerful personality.  Many people came under his sway including a young Obama who she described as a polite young man, but eager to earn the Reverend’s favor.  The reverend had a call and response style frequently challenging members, “Have you seen the light?”  The reverend had little trouble getitng his followers to see…or do whatever he told them.

Two church members were brothers who had equally long rap sheets. In fact, one had just been released from prison.  The church was in need of funds and the Reverend gave them a mission to raise money for the church.  Obama had in fact introduced these two to the Reverend though it is unclear whether it was out of misinformed liberalism or knowingly turning a blind eye to their criminal activities to gain Reverend James’ favor.

In a misguided attempt to raise money for the chuch, these two individuals defrauded a tavern near the Wisconsin state line, blackmailed several victims, broke and enterred a shopping mall causing thousands of dollars in damage, and sabotaged a car which led to the death of two men, and led the police on a high speed chase which led to injuries to several police officers and destruction of several police cars.   The amazing thing is that Yvette says that illegal money was passed along to Obama who got it to the church.  The two brothers clammed up and the illegal funds were never recovered.

It wasn’t long after this that Obama left Triple Rock and found Jeremiah Wright.  Whether he was soured by the illegal activities or not, the point remains he was apparently an active participant in them.  The crimes commited over 20 years ago and the brothers were punished.  Reverend James and one of the two men have died.  However, with Obama running for President I hope that people will look into this further.

  1. Hi Nate. I have a lot of catching up to do. I’ve been w/o interwebs access for almost a week. The series of tubes doesn’t go to my mother-in-laws house. Anyway, as to this post, I’m glad to see the rumor that you’re propagating is rooted in fact as opposed to Larry Johnson’s rumors. I’d never even heard of the book his rumor was based upon.
