President Obama's longtime buddy, unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, Thursday night told debate opponent Dinesh D'Souza and an audience at Dartmouth College that the Constitution is an outmoded document and it ought to be changed.

Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, were the main founders of the domestic terror group the Weather Underground, which was assigned responsibility for dozens of bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructure of the U.S.

D'Souza is the maker of the movie "2016: Obama's America," which is the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time.

It blasts Obama's policies and actions, and warns America about what the nation would be under Obama's vision for the United States.

See Dinesh D'Souza's "2016: Obama's America" and his books in the WNS Superstore.

The topic of the debate was "What's so Great About America?"

Ayers previously called the Weather Underground "an American Red Army" and said the ideology was to: "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents."

In his memoir, he wrote, "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them."

In a 2001 interview with the New York Times, Ayers said, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." Accompanying the article was a photograph of him stepping on an American flag.

Ayers also questioned ramifications for behavior Americans long have considered expected.

"If you are a felon, why do you get disqualified as a citizen and get denied your right to vote? Just because you've committed a crime?" he asked D'Souza.

D'Souza focused on another subject.

"What is happening to the American dream?" he asked.

"We [in the U.S.] are losing the secret of the American dream, but it is coming alive in countries like China, India and Brazil where the people have learned the secrets of wealth creation - making stuff other people really want to buy, and in the process [they are] taking over the global market. Global capitalism has been the greatest gift of America to the world. Social agitation has failed to deliver the goods," he said.

D'Souza said, "What America has shown the world is the importance of wealth creation, not conquest. Our foreign policy can be summed up, 'Trade with us, don't bomb us.'"

Ayers asked the audience if members opposed slavery.

Getting an anticipated, "Yes," Ayers argued a Howard Zinn theory of U.S. history insisting the Dartmouth audience would have been forced to oppose the Founding Fathers on the question of slavery - ignoring the history of the United States righting racial injustice since Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.

Records Prove Muslim Brotherhood
Delegates Skipped Airport Inspections


by Steven Emerson
BREITBART.com


Newly released records confirm a 2012 Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) report that the State Department cleared the way for a visiting delegation of Muslim Brotherhood officials to enter the country without undergoing routine inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

The April 2012 visit came before the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate was elected Egypt's president, although the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) had won a plurality of seats in parliamentary elections. The expedited entry is known as a "port courtesy" normally reserved for high-ranking visiting government officials and dignitaries.

The records, marked "sensitive but unclassified," were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. They offer few details. The State Department released a one-page document labeled "Compiled References to MB Delegation Arrival and Departure" containing four separate communications between March 30 and April 16, 2012 about the Brotherhood delegation. It is not clear who wrote them or who received them.

"In the coming days, we're going to write down a list of procedures for dealing with MB visits to the United States," an April 16, 2012 entry says.

A March 30 communication offers help dealing with "FJP Delegation and POE [port of entry] Courtesies: Please let the desk know over the weekend if you'd like our help submitting to DHS the 'Special Alerts,' which are used to request that travelers not be pulled into secondary [inspection] upon arrival at a point of entry."

But one member of the Brotherhood delegation, which met with U.S. academic and senior government officials, had been linked to a child pornography investigation in the United States years earlier. Under normal circumstances, he likely would have been subjected to extra scrutiny.
