He continues to disappoint us!

Just when you thought reports of Barack Obama and his controversial minister Rev. Jeremiah Wright were over, a new individual appears.

Now news of Obama's relationship with homophobe Rev. James T. Meeks has been revealed, and it's very upsetting.

Rev. Meeks is an Illinois state senator and serves as the pastor of the 22,000 member Salem Baptist Church in Chicago, where Obama frequently campaigned back in 2003 when running for Senate.

Rev. Meeks has been described as someone in which Obama seeks spiritual counsel from, according to an article printer in the Chicago Sun Times. He will even serve as an Obama delegate at the 2008 Democratic convention in Denver.

Rev. Meeks has served on Obama’s exploratory committee for the presidency and was even listed on Obama's campaign website as one his ‘influential black supporters’. The Chicago Sun Times also reported that both Rev. Meeks and Obama share a history of receiving substantial campaign contributions from the indicted real estate "criminal" Tony Rezko.

Aside from numerous other reports linking the two together, the real issue is the character of Rev. Meeks, who is known for his racially charged remarks and homophobic ways.

In a 2006 sermon, Rev. Meeks stated, "We don't have slave masters. We got mayors. But they still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able, or to be educated. You got some preachers that are house niggers. You got some elected officials that are house niggers. And rather than them trying to break this up, they gonna fight you to protect this white man." He later defended that sermon during an interview with a Chicago CBS 2 reporter.

Not to mention Rev. Meeks homophobic ways are well noted. A 2007 newsletter from the Southern Poverty Law Center named Rev. Meeks one of the "10 leading black religious voices in the anti-gay movement."

The newsletter cites him as a key member of Chicago's ‘Gatekeepers’ network (an interracial group of evangelical ministers who strive to erase the division between church and state) and “a stalwart anti-gay activist… [who]… has used his House of Hope mega-church to launch petition drives for the Illinois Family Institute (IFI), a major state-level ‘family values’ pressure group that lauded him last year for leading African Americans in ‘clearly understanding the threat of gay marriage.'”

You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep!

Sad. Sad. Sad.

    First I'd like to start off by saying that it amazes me that we are so concerned with whom Senator Barack Obama Associates himself now that he is running for office. What about the people Senator Clinton associates with what about the people McCain associates with. We all have friends and Colleagues and associates that say some outlandish things about other people, believe in things we don’t believe in and that do stupid shit and yet we stay their friends and we even promote them (HEIDI AND SPENCER)

    I have been to Senator Rev. James t. Meeks church on the south side if Chicago. I have been to many sermons and at the sermons that I have been too I have NEVER EVER heard him say any anti gay remarks. In fact I have heard him say. "If you are a gay man or a lesbian then be that; but don’t say you’re a lesbian and a gay man because someone of the opposite sex has hurt you to many times; because you are not only lying to yourself but to god.”

    It is so easy to point fingers and say BOOOO to you Mr. Obama but this is a man that has not once lied to the public that he serves and he has be forthright and upfront with his feelings beliefs, view points and even receiving substantial campaign contributions from the indicted real estate "criminal" Tony Rezko 5 YEARS AGO.

    You have a candidate that is 5 seconds from death, that has supported all of George W. Bushes “fight on terror” “Weapons of mass Destruction” you have another candidate that has cried to win votes, has lied about trips she has taken stating that there was snipers and ducking and dying Never happened. She supported the war at first and then changed her view points on it. She consistently beats around the bush when people confront her on her beliefs and issues and her lies.

    All I am saying is think who you are voting for before you pass judgment on someone you don’t know. because if we passed judgment on you MR. PEREZ HILTON then you would be taken off of everything that you do. no more website, no more vh1 no more Hollywood events you would just be alone.

    I am an avid reader of Perezhilton.com and I am a gay man. I don’t care who you associate with and I don’t care who Senator Barack Obama associates with. I care about your Integrity, your morality.

    BECAUSE

    YOU CAN’T TELL ABOUT A PERSON CHARACTER BY THE COMPANY THEY KEEP.

    YOU SHOULD NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.

    ASSOCIATION DOES NOT BRING ASSIMULATION.

    “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

    How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldn’t do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals – including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

    Why would they want to do that? Because, according to Zeifman, they feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt, Zeifman said, had the goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach – including Kennedy’s purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

    God, shut the fuck up Perez! We know you have a hard on for that evil bitch Hillary but shut up! Obama is known for speaking in black churches against their anti-Semitism and homophobia. Hillary actually attends a church run by some Bible-thumping homophobe and she's done about as much for gay rights as George Bush has. After all, her husband signed the Defense of Marriage act and introduced the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. Get your facts straight dickwad.

  20. j says – reply to this


    620

    The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel. Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.

    The brief involved precedent for representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. When Hillary endeavored to write a legal brief arguing there is no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding, Zeifman says, he told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970.

    “As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer,” Zeifman said.

    621

    sad sad sad that you are posting this one sided article

  22. j says – reply to this


    622

    he Judiciary Committee allowed Douglas to keep counsel, thus establishing the precedent. Zeifman says he told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files. So what did Hillary do?

    “Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public,” Zeifman said. Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding – as if the Douglas case had never occurred.

    The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.

  25. j says – reply to this


    625

    Zeifman says that if Hillary, Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even participate in the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.

    Of course, Nixon’s resignation rendered the entire issue moot, ending Hillary’s career on the Judiciary Committee staff in a most undistinguished manner. Zeifman says he was urged by top committee members to keep a diary of everything that was happening. He did so, and still has the diary if anyone wants to check the veracity of his story. Certainly, he could not have known in 1974 that diary entries about a young lawyer named Hillary Rodham would be of interest to anyone 34 years later.

    But they show that the pattern of lies, deceit, fabrications and unethical behavior was established long ago – long before the Bosnia lie, and indeed, even before cattle futures, Travelgate and Whitewater – for the woman who is still asking us to make her president of the United States.

    628

    I seem to think that Bosniagate has had more of an effect than the Rev. Wright scandal. Obama seems to have weathered his first "media storm" better than Shillary has been weathering the analysis of her pack of lies. Even though lying seems to be part of being a politician, it really seems to be in her DNA.

    I love some gay people LOVE the Clinton's becasue they are "gay friendly". Remember Bill did the same "I'm one of you" bullshit campaigns. When he got in office he signed "Don't ask, don't tell". DADT is an awesomely bad policy designed my another full of shit president and high ranking military desk jockies that have no idea how/what boots on the ground soldiers really need. DADT was a HUGE set back for gay rights

    If Hilary is elected expect more…. she's just another double talking politico.

    You may tell a lot about a person by the company they keep, but their past is very telling too.

    Obama is acting like a radical Muslim and his buddies are his jihad in Christian clothes. Just because he didn't say it doesn't mean he didn't agree. He has other people do his dirty speaking for him. He knows the media won't touch this so Perez, thank you for letting Americans know, it shows you are not led by the powerful medias that be. And for all you Perez haters/Obama lovers, how does it feel? Clinton has to deal with this everyday, the media loves and tones down Obama's real agenda. The media IS a big problem and propaganda has shown its ugly face on NBC, CNN and idiot Keith Olbermann on MSNBC and all his fellow propagandites.

    For all of you stating: "Why does it matter? Religion and being president never go hand in hand, they are not intertwined. . . blah blah blah"

    WELL YOUR WRONG!!! Look at President Bush, using his religion as a stance against everything i.e gay rights, abortion, etc. It does matter about someone's religious beliefs in today's world because that is how people will vote…. I am against using the idea of your religion belief as a reason to be against something.

    Come on guys. . . get real!

    Or maybe Obama realizes that the world is made up of all kinds of people and he is tolerant enough to have relationships with people that don't always agree with him or have views that differ.

    What an awful quality for a possible president to have– I am sure that sort of thing would never come in handy in this harmonious, peaceful world.

    Hillary has always fought for gays and lesbians, women, African Americans, Hispanics, Asians — she fights for all people and does care one bit what color their skin is, or their sexual preferences, or about any of it except that they get a fair shot at living a good and satisfying life.

    I have no idea what BO stands for — he seems to be self serving and ambitious beyond his years and experience. He refused to have his picture taken with Newsome, despite the fact that Newsome raised money for him, and his 20 year membership in a racist, Anti-American, Anti-Semitic church gives me pause. He has no business running for the presidency, I'm not even sure he's fit to be senator.

    644

    Perez, my friend, you should stick to tracking celebutards and leave politics to someone else. The black clergy is notoriously conservative on matters of homosexuality, but Obama has consistently challenged them to heed the words of Christ and be more welcoming to all of God's creatures. He did so on MLK Day, for example.

    Yes, Rev. Meeks' stand on homosexuality is wrong, but the fact that he and Obama know each other well –how could they not since they both served in the Illinois General Assembly together– is hardly grounds for assailing his candidacy.

    645

    You know, Perez, besides the fact that you obviously must be getting paid by the Hillary camp, you don't really know anything about politics. Just deal with the fact that Hillary is not going to be the nominee. I couldn't give a cr*p about who Obama knows…my identity is not defined by the people that I'm friends with, so it's dumb to keep coming back to this. You're also IGNORING the multitude of lies and continuous deception that Hillary has been spewing during her entire political career…if you were at all informed about politics, you would not be supporting her. I used to be a Hillary supporter, but thank goodness I did my research. And she's at an all-time low with the popular vote right now…it seems that other people are catching on to her treachery now too.

    It will be the downfall of the United States based on Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness if Obama is elected for anything. So many are so enthused with him because he "talks so pretty with grand promises" because we're in a serious decline as is the world. His actions in the Senate have been only "present" for the most part. He's great at denouncing the war, attacking Hilary for it but he wasn't even in office to vote and if he had been, yeah, so easy to talk "what ifs".
    The American people cling to him because we're all suffering. What I Know is that the Bible holds the Rule on this-Do not cling to what is of this world. Cling to ME-the words of Jesus Christ.
    Come on!!!! America will be turned into a ghetto nation and ransomed to the rest of the world for he is a closet muslim, terrorist sympathizer and racist. We will be in worse chains than what we are now.
    America, Wake Up people. I am sickened by the support of this and scared that it may be God's Will to propel us to make a Choice to Wake Up.
    I have prayed every day since the begiining of the election that the best person for the Good of the world be chosen. In my Heart, I have never Believed it to be Obama. McCain is just as scary a choice for different reasons. God be with you Hilary. You're not perfect but the obvious Choice.

    Saint Obama purports to be a new kind of politician who doesn't dig in the mud. It's impossible to get to this point in politics without playing in the sandbox with the other politicians. He held himself out to dry as the new voice of politics but he's as shady as the rest. Hillary doesnt't pretend she's above it. For this reason I just don't trust Reverend Obama of The Church of Empty Rhetoric.

    If a new kind of politics is what the public really wanted, Kucinich would be the frontrunner.

I bet you get the sh#t beat out of you though. I'd start by having 911 on speed dial, mace and a fast junky car to escape with your life in. See if you have a nice car , guess what'll happen. I've lived in these areas and I tell you this, come 9:00 am you will see blacks looking for pop cans so they can buy themselves a "forty", that means get a quart of beer if you didn't guess. And its like that all the time, I've seen it. I was the only person with a job in that whole apt. complex. My kids couldn't even ride the bus because they'd get bullied by blacks. So don't you sit there and tell me ANYTHING!! I've lived it, and you can take your pompous ass down there and see before commenting and calling me names.

    "Tell a lot about a person by the company they keep"

    Hmmm.

    Hillary Clinton is married to Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton instituted the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy in the military, leading to record numbers of gay servicemen and women being discharged. He also signed the Defence of Marriage Act, which barred the federal govt and states from recognizing gay marriage. Then, he went on Christian radio and bragged about it, and used it to court the bigot vote in the 1996 election.

    So who's the homophobe?

    It is sad, disarming and foolish when certain "media professionals" make the decision to weigh in on news items on which they have absolutely no authority. I like this site as much as anyone else, but in this climate of an easy substitution of information for real news it is far too dangerous to have the uninformed chiming in on a debate that is already detrimentally nebulous.

    I ask that politics remain in the realm of the more informed sites. Not only would it cease this spread of misinformation, but ideally it would push those interested parties to seek out sources in which more intelligent, ample and well-informed information can be found.

    If this were a political blog, I might sing a different tune. But, let's call a spade a spade: this is a celebrity carnage site and that should be enough. It a perfect world, it could be both, but our fearless leader, Mr. Hilton, is painfully under-read and misinformed.

    Wow Perez, had no idea you felt so strongly, although you do need to realize just because he and Rev. Meeks are friends does not mean they share the same views.
    Also all you Obama haters need to stop relying on the media for your political views/insight. Be a man/woman and do your own research, if the media told you to jump off a bridge would you? Nope, so get real and make your own choices and research not foxnews choices and research.

I really cannot wait until your bubble bursts…by writing this shit you just hand Maccain the presidency. Well done. You're really being a really fucking bad role model here…and in a few years it wont just be Bush people will be laughing about, but also you, because you just manage to continue with the craze.

    And maybe you really want to have all your rights taken away…keep posting about how fucked Obama is supposed to be and MacCain will just do that to you. And please dont whine about it when you've realized your mistakes…

    Did I mention you have no political education at all? Everybody can tell, you're a joke all over the internet. Why don't you keep to your pink-pseudeo-life-celebrity-gossip-stuff (which is the reason why you're so fucking rich…it's not because you're smart or anything) and let people who actually think before they write do their job? I mean really, you sound like a child that's being told that one of your friends hangs out with a dirty kid…and you'll be the first one to turn your back on that friend.

    I really hope you'll fall on your face like that blone bitch you stole your name from!

    679

    rasmussenreports.com 1 hour, 23 minutes ago

    Senator Hillary Clinton's lead in the Pennsylvania Primary is shrinking.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Pennsylvania shows Clinton leading Barack Obama by just five percentage points, 47% to 42%. For Clinton, that five-point edge is down from a ten-point lead a week ago, a thirteen-point lead in mid-March and a fifteen-point advantage in early March.

    Support for Clinton slipped from 52% early in March, to 51% in mid-month, 49% a week ago, and 47% today. During that same time frame, support for Obama has increased from 37% to 42%.

    SO THE MUDSLINGING CONTINUES YIKES. HOW ABT SOME MERIT HILLARY NO LIES. THANKS.

Obama has consistently come out in favor of homosexuals and homosexual rights. He made a speech in Ohio about it, if you don't remember. Just because someone knows someone else/is associated with them, it doesn't mean that they believe all their views

Hillary has repeatedly lied to cover her tracks regarding millions of dollars in special interest money from a convicted felon in 2000 and dropped her campaign for universal health care coverage as first lady after she was paid off by the big business health care and pharmaceutical companies. How could anyone take her seriously? GO OBAMA!!!!!!!!!

    And then: "You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend."
    Well if that's the truth, then again i got a problem with Hillary, because then we'll have to make our own conclusions base on the facts the she'd choosed Bill Clinton as her husband, apart from been a good President, we all know he's an unfaithful men and a big fat liar ("I did NOT have any relationship with that woman), remember that one?; What about this paragraph as an example of your judgement, Sen.

    Regardless of Obama's religious counsel Obama has said he has strong religious morals and values. We know this. He doesn't hide it, and usually that means anti- gay marriage. I do not share the same beliefs as Senator Obama, but a lot of people do. Obama is a smart, intelligent man who is a democrat. Having said that, Obama keeps his religious affiliation out of government, however people keep bringing it up and making it an issue when Obama has not. Regardless of what you think religiously it shouldn't matter too much as long as it doesn't play into how he runs politics, and it doesn't seem like it will contrary to what some may believe.
