The Joyce Foundation, in collusion with Obama and other Joyce Foundation Board members, used their corrupt ways to take advantage of unsuspecting people, including law students and money starved universities. This eye-opening article, “Joyce Foundation, Obama, and Heller v. D.C” tells how the Joyce Foundation tried to influence Supreme Court Second Amendment “Right to Bear Arms” cases and, in particular, the “District of Columbia vs Heller” case, and gives us a way of looking at how other democratic organizations operate and how far they go to “persuade,” and control outcomes. The fact that the Joyce Foundation bought and paid law students to do their bidding is criminal. This is another version of “pay-to-play” the Chicago way, and these people are pros.
While Obama was on the Foundation’s Board of Directors, from 1994 through 2002, the Joyce Foundation gave huge grants to major universities to have students write law briefs supporting their leftist ideology regarding gun control. After giving universities substantial grants, Joyce would then tell them which legal position to take in their review. Those pro-Joyce positions were written and published in academic law reviews. These reviews would later be pulled for information and used in case investigations by Supreme Court Justices. This was done in an attempt to influence the Supreme Court when cases before them involved the First and Second Amendments.

The video of this event where Israel was allegedly degraded was never released by the LA Times.
How much influence did they have over any legislation that then Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was supporting or passing during these years? Anti-gun legislation that Obama supported was also backed through his association with the Joyce Foundation.
Supreme Court Justices who might have been affected by Obama’s and the Joyce Foundation’s influence peddling through law reviews from 1994 through 2002:
Former Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist
Justice John Paul Stevens
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor
Justice Antonin Scalia
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy
Justice David Hackett Souter
Justice Clarence Thomas
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Justice Stephen G. Breyer
This is more evidence of the crime and corruption of the Joyce Foundation and Obama. Not only are they involved in what Glen Beck calls “Crime Inc.”, the global warming scam and scandal that involves Obama, Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Joyce Foundation, other CCX partners, and Shorebank, we can now see how they have been trying to influence our US Justice Department and obtain their ultimate prize by influencing the Supreme Court Justices.
Will there be someone that can investigate and file suit against the Joyce Foundation before the universities they fed are discredited for being involved in this foundation’s illegal activities, strategy, agenda, and future plans? We can only pray we can expose them and put a stop to their criminal behavior. If you are alumni of these named universities, perhaps you might consider making contact with them. They should be examining how they might be affected if lawsuits are brought against Joyce Foundation for their unlawful and criminal activities.
Below is the original article written in October, 2008 that summarizes the lawsuit. It is a must that you read “Joyce Foundation, Obama, and Heller v. D.C.”
Behind the guise of a philanthropic group are criminals, scammers, and radicals. This adds another layer of criminal activity to their growing resume of illegal activities. It is guaranteed, you will be appalled!
To think that Obama, presently the most radical president in our US history, was trying to undermine our judicial system through the Joyce Foundation lends more credence to his lack of integrity, honor and shallow character. Most unfortunate for US citizens is that the reporters and media were so enthralled with the marketed version of Obama that they did not do their job of vetting the man that now sits in our White House. They aided and abetted an anti-American radical and criminal. Because of them, we are the ones that are paying for their irresponsibility and negligence by allowing this con-man to be elected. Those so called journalists should hang their heads in shame for they violated our trust. They betrayed our country, America. We will remember. We will not be forgiving.
Obama’s Constitutional Subversion
October 08, 2008
A new report (PDF) written by Second Amendment lawyer, Dave Hardy of Arms and the Law finds that while constitutional law professor Barack Obama was serving on the Joyce Foundation’s Board of Directors from 1994-2002, Joyce set out to corrupt the availability of academic scholarship concerning the Second Amendment. The goal was to control published research so that the U.S Supreme Court would be influenced as much as possible by the overwhelming preponderance of recent scholarship favoring the collective rights interpretation favored by gun control advocates and firearm prohibitionists.
The Joyce Foundation years ago realized that a Supreme Court case on the Second Amendment was likely, and decided to use its millions to buy the case indirectly. It created a supposed academic research center as its wholly-owned subsidiary. It corrupted law reviews, dictated their content, and even tried to dictate who could speak at universities accepting Joyce’s money. It laundered its money through its Center and through a University’s Foundation.
An attorney named Barak Obama was right in the middle of the plan.
The Foundation poured millions of dollars into buying influence in cash-starved law reviews, foundations, and universities, providing that they would only publish the collective rights interpretations approved by Joyce, and that they would refuse to publish scholarship that provided an individualist rights interpretation.
This underhanded attempt by Obama and Joyce to influence the Supreme Court–essentially attempting to “buy” an anti-gun interpretation of the Second amendment by manipulating legal scholarship– flies in the face of the revisionist history recently offered up by Annenberg’s FactCheck.Org., which recently and dishonestly portrayed Obama’s newly-minted individual rights interpretation as authentic. It is also a tactic that Joyce continues in Obama’s absence, as the list of university and “public heath” grants targeting firearms on the Foundation’s own web site reveals.
How far was Joyce willing to go under Obama’s leadership to provide the Supreme Court with slanted scholarship?
According to Hardy, Joyce paid Ohio State University to create a Second Amendment Research Center, and used the Center to manufacture scholarship only favorable to the collectivist interpretation. Joyce then used OSU’s Center as a shell organization to purchase influence at other law reviews, including Fordham and Stanford. Fordam and Stanford then dedicated review issues to articles advocating the collectivist, anti-gun scholarship. In short, constitutional scholar Obama attempted to undermine the interpretation of the Constitution.
The Hardy report is just the latest in a disturbing trend of information trickling out about Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama that suggests he is not only radically aligned, but that he is comfortable with using subterfuge to undermine both the Judicial and Executive in the pursuit of political power and influence.
Stanley Kurtz has done, and continues to do, yeoman’s work in sifting through the available archives trying to uncover exactly what transpired before and while Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama was the chairman of the failed Chicago Annenberg Challenge. The Chicago Annenberg Challenge (hereafter, “Challenge” or “CAC”) began as a successful grant application from University of Illinois at Chicago education professor Bill Ayers. Outside of Chicago, Ayers is best known as a domestic terrorist who operated in the late 1960s and 1970s as one of founders, leaders and reputed bomb builders and designers of the Weather Underground.
The Annenberg Foundation (yes, the same parent group that funds FactCheck.org and misrepresented Obama’s Second Amendment record), provided the Challenge with a charter grant of $49.2 million in 1995, and the Challenge raised and spent more than $100 million in total with Barack Obama as the CAC Chairman. The tens of millions of dollars raised by the Foundation was funneled, not into proven educational programs, but laundered into grants for radical left wing organizations that spent the money on efforts to agitate and indoctrinate students and their families to use them as cannon fodder in a battle Ayers and his ideological allies were having over the fate of Chicago’s public schools with the teachers union and school administrators. By any measure–and most tellingly by the Challenge’s own research arm–the Challenge was a educational failure.
The failure of Chicago Annenberg Challenge under Barack Obama and it’s laundering of funds to further the goals of aging radicals instead of improving the Chicago Public Schools, as was their promise, has been avoided as much as possible by most media organizations who don’t want to jeopardize his candidacy with the inconvenient record of his failure as an executive.
Barack Obama’s willingness to scheme in an attempt to corrupt scholarship and deceive the Supreme Court, his role in laundering money to aging terrorists (while stealing the education promised to a generation of schoolchildren), and current bid to impose totalitarian free speech restrictions indicates that Barack Obama is precisely the kind of deceptive authoritarian thug liberals claim to see and hate in President George W. Bush.
Barack Obama has thus far spent nearly unimaginable amounts of money in an attempt to wrest control of the First and Second Amendments. If he becomes President in November, will any of the Constitution be safe?
