    What Obama and his personality cult don't want you to know.

    Not the "rehabilitated Bill Ayers" we have been led to believe by Obama and his lap dogs, the "pundits" of the left, the "elites" who "know so much more than us yahoos", and who have co-opted the educational and media establishments:

    Barack Obama has tried to make voters think he barely know Bill Ayers, a confessed and unrepentant terrorist of the 1970s. It’s important to be clear on why the connection matters beyond Obama’s judgment in choice of associates.

    Ayers and Obama collaborated in something called the Annenberg Challenge after a $50 million donation from the Annenberg Foundation (along with many millions from other donors) intended to improve Chicago’s schools. Ayers founded the Chicago Annenberg Challenge; Obama served as board chairman for four years after 1995 and a board member for two years after that. Ayers was co-chairman of the Chicago School Reform Collaborative, which cooperated in drafting Challenge policy for the first year and served as an adviser for the remaining years of the project. (Post-project evaluation found no evidence that schools had been improved.)

    In effect, Obama’s organization carried out the funding policies set in collaboration with the Ayers group.

    But what was Ayers up to? As Sol Stern of City Journal noted, to call Ayers an “education reformer,” as Tom Brokaw did, is like “calling Joe Stalin an agricultural reformer.”
