Group Says Bill Ayers Got His Job the "Chicago Way"

On the heels of a state investigation into how hundreds of students were improperly granted admission to the University of Illinois because of high-level political and financial connections, the public policy group America's Survival, Inc. (ASI) will hold a news conference on Thursday in Washington, D.C. to examine how Barack Obama associate Bill Ayers became a "Distinguished Professor" at the same university.

Ayers had been a leader of the communist terrorist Weather Underground organization and worked with Obama on educational issues.

"The evidence so far points to his rich father, Thomas Ayers, who sat on the board of the Tribune Company, which publishes the Chicago Tribune, as providing the 'clout' to get his son ensconced at the University of Illinois," said ASI President Cliff Kincaid, a veteran journalist who serves as editor of Accuracy in Media. "There is no other reasonable explanation for how Ayers got this job. Thomas Ayers may also have played a role in getting Ayers' wife and fellow terrorist, Bernardine Dohrn, a teaching job at Northwestern University in the Chicago area. Thomas Ayers had been the chairman of the board of trustees at Northwestern."

In a report to be released at the "Communism in the Classroom" conference, Professor Mary Grabar explains that "Bill Ayers' rehabilitation from fugitive terrorist to 'Distinguished Professor' of Education earning a $126,000 salary at a public Chicago university remains something of a mystery." However, considering his lack of credentials for the post and his flaunting of academic standards, she asks, "Was Ayers' appointment part of the 'Chicago Way?'"

Another speaker, noted author and Professor Paul Kengor, will speak on "Anti-Anti-Communism in the Academy."

Copies of syllabi from Ayers' courses, obtained under the state Freedom of Information Act, will be released for the first time, and several reports on the activities of Ayers' and his comrades in academia will be provided as well. One report will examine a controversial trip made by Ayers and Dohrn to Hugo Chavez's Venezuela.

The event will be held on August 20 at 12:30 p.m. in the First Amendment Lounge of the National Press Club (13th floor, 529 14th St., NW) in Washington, D.C. The conference is free of charge and open to the press and the public. But reservations are requested at 443-964-8208 or For more information go to Again, to repeat:

Our "Communism in the Classroom" conference will be held August 20 at the National Press Club in the First Amendment Lounge, beginning at 12:30 p.m. The National Press Club is located at 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC 20045.

It is open to the press and the public. Sandwiches and refreshments will be served.

Our hope is that the citizens who are confronting members of Congress at town hall meetings will use our information and decide to scrutinize what boards of trustees are doing with your tax dollars at America's colleges and universities, beginning with the University of Illinois, where Bill Ayers is employed. It is up to you.

For America's Survival, Inc.


Cliff Kincaid, President
