Posted on 09/27/2009 11:29:47 PM PDT by Red Steel
The Post & Email has received tonight a decclassified FBI report admitted in evidence in the case brought against W. Mark Felt and Edward S. Miller by President Jimmy Carters U.S. Attorney General, Mr. Griffin B. Bell. This document was obtained by an American citizen, who wished to remain anonymous, via a FOIA request.
Mr. W. Mark Felt is none other than the informant who spoke with reporters from the Washington Post, exposing the Watergate Scandal: who went by the name Deep Throat a fact that points to his political neutrality in American politics.
What is not know about Mr. Felt is that he was prosecuted by the Carter Administration for civil rights violations against members of the Weather Underground, the radical marxist terrorist organization founded by Bill Ayers and company. Mr. Felt had authorized break-ins without a warrent, an act declared a violation of 4th Amendment rights by the Supreme Court in United States v. U.S. District Court, 407 U.S. 297 (1972). Many agents, consequently, were subsequently prosecuted.
The detailed information contained on communist activities is dumbfounding. The report details the early connections between the Weathermen and international Marxist organizations, and shows their relationships. The report begins thus:
The FBI (aslo referred to herein as the Bureau) has the responsibility of uncovering and neutralizing intelligence activities of foreign countries in the United States. In the U.S. this function is solely the responsibility of the Bureau.
Historically, the United States has been the target of subversive efforts direcetd by the international comunist movement to foment disorder and disruption in a revolutionary vein. These efforts were channeled into this country through the activities of communist-bloc diplomatic establishmens and old-line communist groups and organizations working to advance international communist objectives. These old-line comunist groups included the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), the Progressive Labor Party (PLP), and the Socialist Workers Party (SWP).
The emergence of the New Left and black exremist movements in our society drastically altered the situation posed by old-line communist organizations. They evolved mostly out of social reform movements which were transformed into hard-core revolutionary movements dedicated to the total destruction of our democratic traditions and our society. They produced a new breed of revolutionaries whose main preoccupation with communism was that it produced men like Mao Tse-tung, Ho Chi Minh, and Che Guevarra, whom they hoped to emulate in the overthrow of system they deemed oppressive.
The FBI report then names names, and exposes key members of the Communist network in the U.S.A., who had ties to Ayers:
For example, Kathy Boudins father was a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and a registered Cuban agent. He was named in a prepared briefing on espinage and subversive activity given to President Eisenhower and others at a National Security Council meeting in 1956. In 1964, Kathy Boudin was invited by the Cuban Mission to the United Nations (CMUN) to attend a Cuban July 26th celebration. She spent her senior year of college at Moscow University, Moscow, USSR (1964-65). Boudin went to the USSR on her own and not through any special sutent program. While in the USSR she receieved 75 rubles per month from the Russian government as a stipend. Her father also sent her materials on the Amreican Youth Festival which was to be held in Algeria while she was in Russia, and told her that while in Prague he was told that if she wanted to attend as an itnerpreter, it could be arranged. In the course of attempting to arrage a meeting in the United States with Kathy Boudin, a Soviet official contacter her ftaher, Leonard Boudin. Thereafter, Kathy Boudin was observed entering the Soviety Embassy. IN 1967, she traveled back to the Soviet Union. Kathy Boudin became a member of SDS and later became a Weatherman.
SDS is the abbreviation for Students for a Democratic Society founded in 1962, from which the Weatherman terrorist organization sprouted, and in which Bill Ayers and many associates were members. The FBI report continues:
The April 17, 1965 demonstrations sponsored by SDS, were participated in by communist-dominated organizations including the CPUSA, the CPUSA youth group Web Dubola Club of America (DCA), and the Socialist Workers Party (SWP). Lincoln Bergman, later to become a Weatherman, was one of the coordinators of this demonstration. Lincoln had participated in communist organizations and activities prior to this time.
Gus Hall, General Secretary for CPUSA, claimed that CPUSA officials and members had taken part in the leadership, planning and initiation of these demonstrations and he told the CPUSA Secretariate that the peace struggle was one of the main projects of the Party and would be pushed on a full-time basis. Communist and other subversive organizations thereafter were extremely active in demonstrations
Here the report omits 9 pages of evidence, and continues
a coalition of groups which would include radical SDA elements and militant black radicals. Leibel did not want Lincoln or Arlene to join the RU. He believed that they could more effectively operate among New Left as a Movement people without formal RU memberships. It was his view that Arlene and Lincoln should use their contacts with New Left people through The Movement, which was run by them ad viewed as the voice of SDS, to develop information for him on potential RU recruits. Articles in The Movment dealt with such topics as the German students struggle against imperialism, demonstrations against the draft, interviews with leaders of the Cuban Communist Party, and favorable reports of activities in the Cuban Government. The Movement also distrubuted Cuban Communist propaganda received through the Communist news agengy (Prensa Latina).
Through his son and daughter-in-law, Liebel Bergman had the opportunity to meet SDS members and guide their activity. Based on the groups with which Leibel was in contact, including JOIN, an SDS organization, and the fact that Lincoln and Arlene worked for The Movement, the FBI speculated that Leibel intended to operate within the framework of already established militant leftist groups and would use Lincoln and Arlene as a means of meeting members of these organizations and guiding their activity. The FBI proceeded to conduct its investigative activity on this premise. Indeed, the FBI had information that throughout 1968, Arlene was in almost daily contact with her father-in-law, obviously working with him and/or accepting his counsel.
SDS was an important subject within the CPUSA in early 1968. The Party decied to fight for CP ideology within SDS; to include articles on SDS in its publications; and to begin to put many more CP youth (cadre) directly into SDS and into the SDS national office in order to get direct access to the SDS leadership. The ned and possibility for greater communist participation in SDS, and the possibilities for CPUSA recruitment from SDS, were emphasized. Rennie Davis at this time associated with Don Hamerquist of the CPUSA National Committe who was working with the New Left to formulate a program for a communist movement in the US.
The FBI report then details the Communist ties of future Weathermen:
The first known trip of significance to Cuba occured in January, 1968 when Carl Davidson, Todd Gitlin, Gerry Long, Susan Sutheim and Tom Hayden traveled to Cuba to attend the International Culterual Congress (Long and Sutheim later became Weatherman). David Dellinger of the NMC also attended this conference, as did many communists and revolutionaries from around the world. The announced purpose of this conference was to obtain unity of action in Cuban anti-imperialism fights and to spread revolution and hatred of the U.S. The theme was the Struggle Against U.S. Imperialism. At this conference delegates condemned the U.S. fr what the communists alleged was U.S. aggression, and support was pledged to North Vietanam. The delegates also pledged to promote violence against the United States whenever it was deemed necessarsy. The attendees also met with representatives of Red China, North Korea and North Vietnam and visited the National Liberation Front (NLF) Mission in Havana. During this three and one half week trip, Davidson finalized arrangement for a visit of twenty SDS members to travel to Cuba.
Thereafter, in February, 1968, a group of approximately twenty-two people including futuer Weatherman Mark Rudd and approximately nineteen other SDS/Weathermen members, and two Cuban Government officials with diplomatic status traveled to Cuba via Mexico City at the request of the Cuban Government, which paid all of the expenses. On of the Cuban Government officials in the gorup was the former First Secretary at the Cuban Mission to the United Nations (CMUN) who was also a Cuban Intelligence Officer. While in Mexico City, the group stayed at the Cuban Consulate. Several of the SDS members had previously traveled to other foreign countries friendly to Cuba. The group was destined to the Instituto Cubano para Amistad entre lso Pueblos (ICAO-Cuban Institute for Friendship between Peoples). Although the ICAP operated as a cultural exchange organization on the surface, it was in fact the Cuban Governements School for Ideological Indoctrination and their chief instrumentality for providing training to foreign radicals in revolutionary and guerrilla tactics. Rudd and others visited the ICAP on thsi trip. During their four-week visit, SDS members also talked with representatives of the NLP (the politcial arm of the Viet Cong) and with individuals from North Korea.
Upon his return from Cuba, Mark Rudd was elected Chairman of the SDS Chapter at Columbia University and became a leader of violent disturbances. (It was believed by the FBI that such distrubances were planned in Cuba and that the visitors to Cuba received specific instruction from Cuban officials in regard to the demonstrations.) At Columbia Rudd led the largest student strike in the United States. Although there had been various demonstrations in prior years, the main fearure of the Spring 1968 strike that distinguished it from earlier demonstrations was Rudds brand of confrontational poltiics which involved physical confrontation, including the take over of buildings and the ransacking of offices. By the end of April , 1968, 700 to 1000 studens had taken over five university buildings and eventually had to be removed by a force of 1000 policemen. In addition to Rudd, a number of others involved in the leadership of the Columbia strike later played prominent roles in the Weatherman. They included Ted Gold, John Jacobs, Robert Roth, Martin Kenner and Jonah Raskin. Rudd was later interviews about the Columbia riots by the Cuban publication, Prensa Latina.
SDS member Carl Davidson again visited Cuba in March. He and others had a three hour discussion with Fidel Castro, and reportedly met with representatives of North Korea, North Vietnam and Commnist China. During the militant Labor Forum, held in April, Davidson reported on his meeting with Castro, stating that Castro now belieed that a socialist revolution was possible in the U.S.
During April, SDS activist Steven Halliwell visited North Vietnam. Ken Cloke later to become a Weatherman and RU member also met with a North Vietnamese delegation during this time in Sweden.
Perhaps it is only a coincidence, but Judge Jerome B. Simandle, before whose court the Kerchner case is languishing, also studied in Sweeden just a few years later. Sweden was notorious during the Cold War for meetings between western subversives and KGB and other commnist agents; and not a few westerners were formally recruited as KGB agents during their stay in Sweden.
The FBI report continues:
At the 1968 June SDS National Convention meeting it was decided that SDS shoudl align itself with students from other countries. The convention adopted resolutoins of solidarity with the students of Germany and France and with the Iranian Student Association. The resolution dealing with Iran stated in part:
To besend by telegram to the Iranian Student Association. SDS expresses its solidarity with your continuing fight against the dictatorship wich oppresses your homeland . . . Your fight against the Shah, the fight of the Germand SDS aginst Kiesinger, of the French against deGaulle, of the Japanese against Sato these are a few of teh curernt fronts of a single war. WE are your allies and brothers.
Members of the CPUSA, DCA, RLP, SWP and the SWP youth group Young Student Alliance (YSA) attended the convention. Karen Wald also attended and was working at the SDS national office as of this time. (She was also a mbmer of the editorial group of The Movement, and previously associated with the YSA. A year earlier, Wald has traveld to Cuba.) Bernardine Dohrn was elected Interogranizational Secretary, and stated that she considered herself a revolutionary communist. Mike Klonsky, elected SDS National Secretary, also publically identified himself as a revolutionary communist. (Klonskys father was the former Organizational Secreatary of the Eastern Pennsylvania-Deleware District of the CPUSA. His mother was also a form CPUSA member.)
At the convention, a workshop on sabotage and explosives was held. Eariler in the year, a pamphelt bearing the inscriptin An Argument for Sabotage as the Next Logical Step Toward Obstruction and Disruption of the U.S. War Machine was mailed from Toronto, Canada to over 300 antiwar groups throughout the U.S. The document urged the use of incendiary devices and included detailed instruction and diagrams. The illegal and clandestine nature of such violent activity was emphasized. Also, it was during this convention that Naomi Jaffe, later to become a Weatherman, claimed to have shot down an American figher plane with an anti-aircraft gun and to have asistend in the capture of an American pilot during her earlier trip to Hanoi. She wore a small . . .
The Post & Email will continue its transcription of the remaining half of this important document tomorrow.
Aye, bookmarked. Thanks for posting, good find!
As an side note, one of the first questions in the questionnaire you have to fill out to get a security clearance is, "are you now or have you ever been a member of the 'SDS'", and "do you know anyone who is now or has ever been a member of the 'SDS'".
Nobody in this administration can answer "no" to those questions and would be barred from getting a security clearance which is why the 0bama administration is not allowing the FBI to vet members of his administration and is "doing it from the White House".
Our Country has been overthrown by communist with almost no resistance.
Someone needs to put this in a flowchart with photos.
This surprises anyone capable of thought how?
A COMMUNIST COUP with the aid and comfort of the Lamestream press.....Makes me sick.
Mark Rudd and Carl Davidson are currently running Obama’s The New Party and Progressives for Obama. Plus they are the individuals in charge of Obama’s campaign funds. There is documentation of The New Party and the Progressives Party meetings with intention to fuse themselves into the DNC because they knew they couldn’t run their candidates from a communist supported entity.
I discovered this back in early 2007 when I started researching and following his trail.
When I see this many typos in an article, it calls the whole thing into question. Boudin’s father, although no angel, was an agent of Cuba because he was an attorney and represented Cuba in court. Boudin went to the Soviet Union as a student. The article states that Kathy Boudin went to the Soviet Embassy prior to this trip. It gives the impression that that act is some kind of proof of Stalinist infiltration. Boudin’s scumbag past is well documented on Free Republic, in part by me, but this part of the article is pointless.
In order to visit a foreign country, one has to obtain a visa before the trip. Boudin went to the Soviet Embassy so she could go there.
Half truths are not helpful in cases like this. We all know that Boudin and much of the so called underground movement of the 1960s was little more than Stalinist trash. We should stand on what’s true and what’s important. Leave the insinuations to the Marxists - I mean democrats.
Bookmarked for reference - background on SDS/Weathermen
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"FBI files from 1976, recently made public under the Freedom of Information Act, confirm the connections between Weatherman, Havana, and Moscow. Weatherman leaders like Mark Rudd traveled illegally to Havana in 1968 to engage in terrorist training. There, camps set up by Soviet KGB Colonel Vadim Kotchergine were educating Westerners both in Marxist philosophy and urban warfare."
"In July 1969, [Bernardine] Dohrn [Bill Ayers' co-terrorist wife and leader of the Weather Underground], Eleanor Raskin, Dianne Donghi, Peter Clapp, David Millstone and Diana Oughton, all representing 'Weatherman', as Dohrn's faction was now called, traveled to Cuba and met with representatives of the North Vietnamese and Cuban governments."

In 1976, the FBI's Chicago Field Office prepared a summary which described the activities of the Weather Underground Organization, also known as Weathermen. This organization described itself as a revolutionary organization of communist men and women. The FBI's analysis of its motivations, beliefs, and international travels are outlined in this summary.
[some excerpts from the 1976 report linking the organization to foreign governments...]
From the moment in October, 1967, when Radio Hanoi announced the formation of the South Vietnamese Peoples Committee for Solidarity with American People (by the National Liberation Front (NLF), the political arm of the Viet Cong) with the objective of establishing relations with "progressive organizations and individuals in the United States," a political front was enjoined in behalf of the national interests of the Democratic Republic of North Vietnam (DRV) (and the NLF), the purpose of which was to intensify the anti-war sentiment in the United States.
From the initial meeting between the Vietnamese and leading anti-war activists held in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, in November, 1967, to the July, 1969, meeting with leading Weatherpeople held in Havana, Cuba, the influence of Vietnamese representatives on the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) leadership became sharply pronounced. At the same time, the example of the Cuban revolution became the guide for the emerging American student revolutionary. With an increasing number of trips to Havana where the youthful revolutionary could learn at first hand how to create revolution, the influence of Cuba on the developing WUO [Weather Underground Organization] was enormous.
The WUO obtained their revolutionary methodology from the Cubans and Vietnamese and, importantly, put into practice what they had learned from them. The Weathermen, of course, did not just happen to come about during the June, 1969, SDS National Convention. They fully admit their radical heritage began during experiences gained in SDS and as shown herein their international contacts with representatives of the DRV and NLF which began in 1967 increased their anti-imperialist consciousness so that by 1969 they had solidified their revolutionary commitment to include the maximum optimum of armed struggle. So, when Huynh Van Ba, representative of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG), instructed the WUO to "look for the person who fights hardest against the cops...Don't look for the one who says the best thing. Look for the one who fights," the campus base was forgotten and the WUO began to recruit the greasers and assorted oddments who had displayed their hatred of authority in direct combat with police.

And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":
"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "
Thanks for that info! The more dots that are connected the scarier this all gets.
I am one of those that was yelling. In fact, we put up a blog Democrats for Sale that we quit posting on because of the contact of Frank Davis’ son when we said his Father was a communist. Someone in the campaign said we should quit posting and let the facts stand for themselves.
Now we are not involved with any campaign and intend to shout even louder on the site.
Most of the MIA media were willing participants and agreed with what Obama was doing.

Thanks, great post! No surprises but good confirmation.
I noticed the name “Karen Wald”. Seems like I remember seeing the name before but it’s an echo down the halls of my aging memory. I’m wondering if this is a descendant of Lillian Wald, who helped set up the CP’s apparatus in the United States before and during World War I.
Bump for RJ.
The following information is based upon news reports (i.e. NY Times) and open FBI files. In 1982, New York City, Barack Obama is attending Columbia Univ. and is residing about two blocks away from Weather Underground leader William Ayers on the Upper East side of Manhattan NY. Bill Ayers is attending Bank Street College on the other side of Central Park at West 112th Street going for his Masters in Early Childhood Education. Barack Obama is a Poli Sci major at Columbia Univ, 2960 Broadway at West 116th Street New York. Fast forward to 1997.....Barack Obama Praised 'Searing and Timely' a Book by Bill Ayers in 1997 titled "A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court" in Chicago and Obama is mentioned in the book. http://wwwwbipicomlink.blogspot.com/2008/10/barack-obama-bill-ayers-and-bernardine.html
Barack Obama was living in the building at 339 East 94th Street when he received a phone call about his father’s death from a car accident in 1982 (see his photo here). While no residents, current or past, who were contacted by The NY Times remembered Mr. Obama, they shared tales of a building with low rents and dicey circumstances during the early 1980s, when Mr. Obama apparently lived there, before and after he graduated from Columbia University in 1983. “B. Obama” was listed in telephone directories at 339 East 94th Street in the early 1980s.
Mr. Obama did not specify the building number in his memoir, and his campaign has said that he has forgotten specifics of his youth (why ?). At Columbia University in New York City, Barack Obama majored in political science with a specialization in international relations. Barack Obama will not release any information about his days at Columbia Univ, as to what organizations he belonged to, but Obama’s first known public speech takes place at an Occidental College event, sponsored by the Students for Economic Democracy (SED), which is a branch of the Campaign for Economic Democracy (CED), a group that was founded by radical, anti-American, Marxist activist Tom Hayden who was also active with the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in the 1960's. William Ayers’ subsequent radical group, the Weather Underground, was comprised of many former SDS members; in 1969 the Weather Underground - then called simply “Weatherman” - declared “war on Obama graduated with a B.A. from Columbia in 1983, then worked for a year at the Business International Corporation and then at the New York Public Interest Research Group. Dan Armstrong, who worked with Mr. Obama at Business International Corporation in New York in 1984 and has deconstructed Mr. Obama’s account of the job.
Mr. Armstrong’s description of the firm, and those of other co-workers, differs at least in emphasis from Mr. Obama’s. It was a small newsletter-publishing and research firm, with about 250 employees worldwide, that helped companies with foreign operations (they could be called multinationals) understand overseas markets, they said. Far from a bastion of corporate conformity, they said, it was informal and staffed by young people making modest wages. Employees called it “high school with ashtrays.”
After about a year, Obama was hired by the New York Public Interest Research Group, a nonprofit organization that promotes consumer, environmental and government reform. He became a full-time organizer at City College 160 Convent Ave at West 135th Street in Harlem NY, paid slightly less than $10,000 a year to mobilize student volunteers.
Barack Obama admitted in his first book that he would "carefully" seek out radical and Marxist friends while at Columbia University through 1983.In 1980 Ayers and Dohrn turned themselves in to federal authorities, but all charges were dropped as a result of alleged "government legal misconduct, use of illegal wire taps. Dohrn and Ayers had began a life together in New York City in the early 1970's, still underground using assumed ID's. William "Bill" Ayers used aka Michael Charles Rafferty Jr, aka Jules Michael Taylor, aka Hank Anderson, Bernardine Rae Dohrn used aka Lorraine Anne Jellins, aka Sharon Louise Naylor (Taylor) and aka Karen Louis DeBelius. Ten years later in 1980, Dohrn and Ayers finally turned themselves in, in Chicago.
Bernardine (NOT Bernadine) Dohrn initially moved to New York City to work for the National Lawyers Guild in 1967,an organization with which the Weather Underground and the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee have worked very closely is the National Lawyers Guild. The National Lawyers Guild in the old days was frequently identified as a legal front organization for the Communist Party. In December 1975, a National Lawyers Guild delegation traveled to Puerto Rico to attend the Congress of the Puerto Eican Socialist Party (Communist). They are expected to send a delegation to the Middle East some time this year to meet with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). This trip is being organized in coordination wnth the Palestine Solidarity Committee, a group closely linked to the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee.
Dohrn led the Weatherman faction in the SDS fight and continued to be a leader afterward. In July 1969, Dohrn, Eleanor Raskin, Dianne Donghi, Peter Clapp, David Millstone and Diana Oughton, all representing "Weatherman", as Dohrn's faction was now called, traveled to Cuba and met with representatives of the North Vietnamese and Cuban governments. Prior to the March 6, 1970 Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, in which three members of the group were killed as a bomb was being constructed, all members of Weatherman went underground. The group then changed its name to Weather Underground. At the 1969 National Convention of SDS held in Chicago IL, the SDS National officer was Bernardine Dohrn, from the Columbia University NY Chapter of SDS came Jeff Jones, Bill Ayers, Mark Rudd and Jeff Nellen, SDS was the precursor to the Weatherman Group.
In the fall of 1969, Mark Rudd and Jeff Jones of the Columbia Univ Chapter of SDS (Weatherman members) met regularly with Communist Cuban Intelligence Personal at the Cuban Mission to the U.N. 6 East 67th Street at Fifth Ave Manhattan NY. Funds were dispensed for demonstrations and most probably explosives and explosives making information (see Weatherman Greenwich Village explosion at a West 11th Street apartment belonging to the father of the Weatherman Cathlyn Wilkerson blew up on March 6, 1970, ). In June of 1969 Bernardine Dohrn met with Communist Cuban Intelligence officer Jose Viera at the Cuban Mission to the U.N. at East 67th Street New York NY, the following month (July) Dohrn led a SDS contingent to a meeting in Havana with Communist representatives from Cuba and North Vietnam. In the fall of 1969 the SDS dissolved and Bernardine Dohrn joined forces with Bill Ayers to start the Weathermen.
Julie Nichamin, one of the old SDS and Weatherman leaders, a repeat "visitor" to Cuba, and a leader of the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee, serves as a coordinator for the Puerto Rican Solidarity- Committee in 1975. The Puerto Rican Solidarity Committee is the propaganda arm of the Puerto Rican Socialist Party and defends terrorist and other violent activities on behalf of Puerto Rican independence. During the last years of their underground life 1979 to 1980, Dohrn and Ayers resided in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago where they used the aliases Christine Louise Douglas and Anthony J. Lee.
U.S. FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS RECORDS, NEW YORK STATE;
BERNARDINE DOHRN 04556-054, age now 66, White F , RELEASED 12-23-1982. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: January 6, 1983; A Federal judge has freed Bernardine Dohrn, who was jailed seven months ago for refusing to cooperate with a Federal grand jury investigating the 1981 Brink's armored-car robbery in Rockland County. The judge, Gerard L. Goettel of District Court, said late Tuesday that Miss Dohrn did not have to return to the Federal jail in Manhattan from a Christmas furlough she was given Dec. 23. Miss Dohrn, a former member of the Weather Underground, was one of several uncooperative witnesses subpoenaed by the Federal grand jury probing the aborted robbery in which two Nyack police officers and a guard were killed. After refusing to cooperate with a demand for samples of her handwriting, Miss Dohrn was cited for contempt and jailed on May 19, 1982. She could have been jailed until the grand jury's term expired, a maximum of 18 months. After leaving the underground (and Federal Prison), Bill Ayers and Dohrn set up shop in NYC in 1982, where they married and where he later earned an M.Ed from Bank Street College at 610 West 112th St New York, NY 10025 in Early Childhood Education (1982-1984), an M.Ed from Teachers College, Columbia University in Early Childhood Education (1987) and an Ed.D from Teachers College, Columbia University in Curriculum and Instruction (1987).
Investigators have stated that Bernardine Dohrn may have played a small part (or helped plan) the 1981 Brinks’ robbery. Bernardine Dohrn was the manager of the Manhattan children’s boutique Broadway Baby in 1979, which gave her access to customer information; with this information, it was possible for Dohrn to assist in creating fake identification for Family members (Weathermen). Bernardine Dohrn was suspected of assisting those involved by obtaining false drivers’ licenses for them. Bernardine Dohrn had listed an address of 520 West 123rd Street New York NY, two blocks above Columbia Univ. Teachers College. "November 27, 1980 A woman who has lived on the West Side of Manhattan for two years has been identified as Bernardine Dohrn, the fugitive leader of the radical Weather Underground".
According to a 1982 New York Times report, "Broadway Baby" which opened in July of 1979, was implicated in an investigation of a series of violent armed robberies in New York—netting more than $2 million over a two-year span—committed by former Black Panthers and Weather Underground members in the early ’80s.
At "Broadway Baby", customers often paid by check and used driver’s licenses for identification which is SOP at any department store. On Dec. 28, 1979, information from two customer files was used to apply for two driver’s licenses at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The fraudulent licenses were used to rent getaway cars for the gang from Econo Car where one of the Agents was none other Dohrn's best friend forever Katherine (Kathy) Boudin.
Investigators tracked the identities on two licenses for the getaway cars. The names belonged to women who had shopped at Broadway Baby in December 1979. The manager of Broadway Baby during that period of the customer ID theft was Bernardine Dohrn (who at this time was underground with Bill Ayers and already had one child with him, a son, Zayd, in 1977), identified by investigators as taking customer information from one, and possibly both, of the women shoppers. Dohrn was never charged in that case, it appears Dohrn was the "forger" for Weatherman bogus ID's.
At the time of the Brink's robbery, Oct 1981, "Best Friend Forever" Katherine Boudin had been living in New York with a roommate and her son; she worked as an agent for Econo-Car (an employment which facilitated the theft of vehicles for use in armed robberies) and used aliases which included Lynn Adams, Elizabeth Ann Hartwell, and Barbara Edson
Bernardine Dohrn went to jail for six months rather than testify and provide a hand writing sample to a grand jury about the "1981 Brinks Robbery" matter in 1982. Only because her lawyer was able to convince the judge that Dohrn’s “fanaticism” meant she would never testify was she finally released.
"The Brinks Robbery and Murders", On Tuesday the 20th of October 1981, in the village of Nanuet in Rockland County, a gang of armored-car bandits spectacularly hit a Brink's truck for $1.6 million, killing a guard and wounding two others. At a police roadblock a few minutes later, they opened fire on Nyack cops and killed two of them. A half-dozen or so of the bandits got past the immediate dragnet. A few others were nabbed at the scene. And one of them was 38-year-old Katherine Boudin, who, with Cathy Wilkerson 11 years earlier, had been seen fleeing the Village bomb factory, naked and screaming.
After the arrest of member Jeff Jones and his wife three days later (in an unrelated incident) the official end of the Weather Underground was marked. Key to disrupting the group for good was the newly created FBI-New York City Police Anti Terrorist Task Force. It brought together the strengths of both organizations and focused them on these domestic terrorists. The task force and others like it paved the way for today’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces.
Barack Obama, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are living in close proximity in Manhattan NY from about 1982 to at least 1984. Bernardine Dohrn moves to Chicago and from 1984 to 1988 Dohrn is employed by the prestigious Chicago Law firm Sidley & Austin, Bill Ayers apparantly stays at Columbia Univ. in New York City until Ed.D graduation in 1987. Michelle Obama joined Sidley & Austin as an associate in the fall of 1988. She had previously been a summer associate at Sidley & Austin—evidently in the summer of 1987 (when Dohrn was there).
Barack Obama entered Harvard Law School in late 1988, during his summers, he returned to Chicago where he worked as a summer associate at the law firm of Sidley & Austin from 1988 to 1989, this is the same Law Firm where Bernardine Dohrn, the Leader/Founder of the "Weatherman Group", was already employed.
By 1995, it appears that Barack Obama had known Bill Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn at least eight years since Ayers and Obama shared involvement in the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools in 1987, Ayers did not leave Columbia Univ. NYC until mid 1987, it appears he travelled back and forth between Chicago and NYC, he got involved with the radical Alliance For Better Schools in Chicago, possibly through Dohrn ?..... The radical School reform movement had begun in 1987 in the wake of an unpopular strike by Chicago teachers. Bill Ayers was active in that reform effort through a group called the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, or ABCs. ABCs was an alliance of various activists and reform groups that included the Developing Communities Project which Barack Obama headed up at the time as well as Chicago United, a business sector group, that was headed up by Thomas Ayers, father of Bill Ayers.
Obama Praised 'Searing and Timely' a Book by Bill Ayers titled "A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court" in Chicago; Barack Obama gave a glowing endorsement of the book by former domestic terrorist William Ayers and Barack Obama was mentioned by name in the book itself, Dec. 21, 1997, endorsement was in the Chicago Tribune Newspaper. A month before the item appeared, on Nov. 20, 1997, Michelle Obama, then dean of student services and director of the University Community Service Center, held a panel at the University of Chicago that featured both Barack Obama and terrorist Bill AyersBernardine Dohrn (Ayres wife), was once labeled “the most dangerous woman in America” by none other than J. Edgar Hoover and Dohrn proclaimed, “I consider myself a revolutionary Communist”. . It is unclear whether Obama knew the former fugitive Dohrn through Sidley & Austin but there is no doubt that, by the time Obama joined Sidley & Austin as a Summer associate, Obama had known Bill Ayers for at least two years through their involvement in Alliance for Better Chicago Schools in 1987.....Obama, 21 years involved with terrorist cop killers.
In 1976, the FBI's Chicago Field Office prepared a summary which described the activities of the Weather Underground Organization (Dohrn & Ayers), also known as Weathermen. This organization described itself as a revolutionary organization of communist men and women (Dohrn & Ayers). The FBI's analysis of its motivations, beliefs, and international travels are outlined in this summary.
Once a Commie always a Commie except now it's toned down and called Socialism via Barack Obama's exchange with Joe the Plumber "I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody " wonder where Obama got this from !
There is also Communist connection with the Health Care Reform: LP Beria: Psycho-politics- Communist Address on Health Care and Control given at Lenin University to American students and “45 Communist Goals for the Take Over of America.
See “Taking Back Our Nation” which is my suggestion for withdrawing from our system. Another suggestion is great, but I believe mine has more immediate power than “Articles of Freedom - work of Continental Congress Nov. 2009” Many of the complaints are similar. Both are on my website: http://www.divine-way.com
Things are so back and have encompassed our whole system, withdrawing from it is the best option, in my humble opinion.
God has solutions to world problems we created by ignoring His wisdom.
Mr. W. Mark Felt is none other than the informant who spoke with reporters from the Washington Post, exposing the Watergate Scandal: who went by the name "Deep Throat" a fact that points to his political neutrality in American politics. What is not know about Mr. Felt is that he was prosecuted by the Carter Administration for civil rights violations against members of the Weather Underground, the radical marxist terrorist organization founded by Bill Ayers and company.Thanks Red Steel!
