Here's the latest on the Michelle Obama Tape

What's on the Michelle Obama Rant Tape?
Here's what's known so far:

The Michelle Obama Rant Tape was filmed between June 26th - July 1st 2004 in Chicago, IL at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference at Trinity United Church: specifically the Women's Event.

Michelle Obama appeared as a panelist alongside Mrs. Khadijah Farrakhan and Mrs. James Meeks.

Bill Clinton spoke during the Conference, as did Bill Cosby and other speakers, but not at the panel Michelle attended.

Michelle Obama spoke at the Women's Event, but referenced Bill Clinton in her rant --- his presence at the conference was the impetus for her raving, it seems.

For about 30 minutes, Michelle Obama launched into a rant about the evils of America, and how America is to blame for the problems of Africa. Michelle personally blamed President Clinton for the deaths of millions of Africans and said America is responsible for the genocide of the Tutsis and other ethnic groups. She then launched into an attack on "whitey", and talked about solutions to black on black crime in the realm of diverting those actions onto white America. Her rant was fueled by the crowd: they reacted strongly to what she said, so she got more passionate and enraged, and that's when she completely loses it and says things that have made the mouths drop of everyone who's seen this.

The "tape" is a DVD that Trinity United sold on its website, and possibly offered free for download up until March 2008 when Trinity's site was scrubbed and the DVDs were no longer offered for sale.

This outburst happened just one month before the 2004 Democratic Convention, when Barack Obama delivered the keynote address.

UPDATED: It seems really easy for Chicago local media, especially, to determine whether or not this is the right tape of Michelle Obama. All they need to do is pull the tape from this 2004 Conference (particularly the panel Michelle was on), which should be readily available (since this was a very large multi-day event). All a journalist needs to do is watch this tape: if this is not the right one, they'd know immediately and this issue would be debunked. But, logically, this seems to be the most likely source of the tape people have been talking about at

Barack Obama friend, next-door neighbor and long-time fundraiser/mentor…….Syrian, Tony Rezko found GUILTY on 16 counts…….

A plea deal is almost certain……

We already know Rezko gave Obama land… a favor….what else have these two done??…….

This is another ticking time bomb for Obama………not just for his campaign…..but for his career.

Things should get interesting in the next few months.

Maybe Hillary is smart to suspend her campaign like Romney. You never know... McCain might even blow a gasket, and were back to square one.

Hillary vs Romney! Now that sounds like a Democrat vs Republican contest.

Not a Socialist vs a RINO Democrat.

I'm praying to Allah right now..

Now PC, you must have doctored this photo.. This woman looks like a bigger bitch/psyco than Hillary... How about a stapler throwing contest, to determine if HC is the VP?

UPDATE #2: It's also being reported that ABC-7 news anchors moderated a panel at the Conference that appears to be the one Michelle Obama participated in. If so, then it's reasonable to believe ABC-7 in Chicago has footage from the panel discussion. It's also been consistently said on the blogs since word of this "tape" first broke that a network has the footage and is sitting on it --- and that the network in question is ABC. Once again, if ABC-7 does have tape from this panel discussion, they could solve this mystery today by releasing it all on their website -- particularly the 30 minutes or so of Michelle Obama speaking -- so we can see once and for all exactly what she said that day. The ABC-7 anchors who moderated could also come out and definitively say what Michelle Obama said on the panel (or Michelle could come out herself and recount what she said). That would get to the bottom of this.

To all of you life long Democrats………the Democrats that seem to no longer be important to Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, and the Daily Kos Kids……….I know……..Its hard……..scary…….and, frustrating…..

It’s ok….you can do it….just once….vote Republican (justify it this way…Rush Limbaugh hates him…so does Laura Ingrahm…and Michelle Malkin)……

Vote for a man of priniciple…integrity…..and, experience….

Join the team… Sign up for Citizens of McCain, which is being lead by Joe Lieberman, and is a bi-partisan group, in support of John McCain

I know…I know……John McCain didn’t fill up an auditorium in Minnesota on Tuesday (probably because McCain speaks about specifics…. something that completely bores Obama supporters)…..

True….John McCain is not the best teleprompter reader (probably because he’s not a manufactured actor….he has complex thoughts and policy positions that he is more comfortable speaking about off the cuff….rather, than rehearsed and canned)……

And yes, John McCain is not ethnically diverse (he’s just a typical white guy…with 26 years of proven red/blue bi-partisan leadership….oh yeah, he’s also one of the greatest american hero’s alive)……

But despite his flaws……he is who he is……a legendary patriot….with vast experience…….and unshakable principle.

"Obama denies tape rumor and questions the question."

It's over, no such thing happened. The Messiah would never lie to his follower's. Probably James Carvel, just trying to gain Hillary some votes, before it was over..

Next think you know we'll be reading that Barrack is a smoker that's been trying to quit for the last 20 years, or something else like that to destroy his character.. This man is a role model for the youth of America! Kinda like Bill was; if you get the gist.. I mean uhh.. the point. (in case somebody don't know what gist is.. not that stuff on the blue dress)

UPDATE #3: On 06/05/08, Larry Johnson at reported:

It also is curious that the Obama folks put out the word that Michelle didn’t say “WHITEY”. Nope, according to them she said, “WHY DID HE.” Hmmmm. Why would you put that out if the recording of the event did not exist? Then you have the frantic scrubbing of Trinity websites. How about efforts to check the video files of Chicago TV stations? Stymied. The local ABC station says they will only give up a video if there is a subpoena.

FINAL UPDATE: As noted at the very top of what's evolved into an incredibly long post, this effort was undertaken by amateurs who are not journalists, and do not have the resources or staff to locate the footage from Michelle Obama's 2004 panel discussion to determine if anything shocking was said there. We just pieced together the most plausible strands from the rumors we heard online, spent a lot of time in the library and on Google looking for an event that would have afforded Michelle Obama an opportunity to deliver a rant like the one described, and spoke with people in Chicago who, like us, remembered a politician's wife making remarks like this before the Democratic Convention in 2004. That's what led us, after 4 weeks of research, to Michelle Obama's appearance at the 2004 Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Convention in Chicago. Only journalists can take this train further, and find the actual remarks Michelle Obama made that day -- which is moot now, because on 6/5/08 Barack Obama said his wife never made any offensive remarks, and he would never in a million years lie about something like this. So, no tape exists, and a journalist would be foolish to apply pressure to get the footage from that event, because they won't find a single thing on it, according to Obama himself -- who never lies. And, even though journalists gleefully spent considerable time looking for footage of Hillary Clinton in Bosnia with children to embarrass her and contradict remarks she made to the media, those same journalists should not, of course, invest any time in finding the footage of Michelle Obama at this 2004 panel discussion, because, once again, Barack Obama has said emphatically there is just no reason to do that. And, lastly, of course the fact ABC-7 in Chicago is refusing to release its tapes of Michelle Obama at the 2004 Conference without a subpeona PROVES there is nothing of interest at all on those tapes, as it makes perfect sense for a news organization to refuse to release the tapes from an event where Obama assures us nothing at all of interest happened. Makes perfect sense, so we thus accept Obama's insistence without question!

2008 Final Primary Results: Hillary Clinton = 17,802,300 votes. Barack Obama = 17,501,751 votes. Winner selected by the DNC and its superdelegates? Barack Obama! In the interest of Unity, congratulations to our "winner" and thanks for the new math, Chairman Dean. It's change we can believe in!
