Alice Palmer is a Chicago based academic, activist and former friend, employer and political ally of Barack Obama.
In the mid 1990s Alice Palmer, then an Illinois State Senator, employed Obama has her chief of staff, when she attempted an ill-fated run for the US Congress.
Obama was part of Friends of Alice Palmer, alongside controversial property developer Tony Rezko and Democratic Socialists of America members Danny Davis, Betty Wilhoitte and Timuel Black-also a member of Committees of Correspondence).
Later Palmer introduced Obama as designated successor to her Illinois State Senate seat, in the living room of former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, while DSA member, former communist and long time Obama friend Quentin Young looked on.
The Palmer/Obama relationship soured after Obama refused to step down when Palmer decided she wanted her State Senate seat back, after her Congressional bid failed.
Obama went on to win the seat unopposed, after he knocked Palmer and his other rivals off the ballot, by challenging the legitimacy of their nominating signatures.
Alice Palmer was the first rung of Obama's ladder to power.
It has long been known that Alice Palmer was a communist front activist, as were many in Obama's orbit.
More seriously however-new evidence shows that Alice Palmer had high level connections behind the "Iron Curtain" and may have been a Soviet "agent of influence"-that is, a conduit of Soviet progaganda and policy, to the US and the "third world".
What is the evidence?
Alice Palmer and her husband Edward "Buzz" Palmer had radical connections in Chicago and abroad going back at least into the 1970s.
In 1980, Buzz Palmer and Alice Palmer were invited by the Maurice Bishop led government of the Caribbean island of Grenada...

~~Chicago Way, organizing Communists? ......... PING!
To quote Tom Daschle, “I’m shocked... and deeply saddened.”
It’s nice to finally see this, always been a HUGE red flag. Associate of Zero’s with several trips to Moscow in the ‘80s? Uhm...Hellooooo.
Ayers and Dohrn visiting Cuba. Helloooo.
What does FBI CI know?
Nice vetting by an ignorant public for Barry’s background check. Bravo Fools.
From the Illinois Code:
ARTICLE 7. THE MAKING OF NOMINATIONS BY POLITICAL PARTIES
10 ILCS 5/7-2) (from Ch. 46, par. 7-2)
A political party, which at the municipal election in any other municipality or political subdivision, (except townships and school districts), for municipal or other officers therein then next preceding a primary, cast more than 5 per cent of the entire vote cast in such municipality or political subdivision, is hereby declared to be a political party within the meaning of this Article, within said municipality or political subdivision, and shall nominate all municipal or other officers therein under the provisions hereof to the extent and in the cases provided in section 7--1.
Provided, that no political organization or group shall be qualified as a political party hereunder, or given a place on a ballot, which organization or group is associated, directly or indirectly, with Communist, Fascist, Nazi or other un-American principles and engages in activities or propaganda designed to teach subservience to the political principles and ideals of foreign nations or the overthrow by violence of the established constitutional form of government of the United States and the State of Illinois.

Do you know when that became code?
I never knew that. I just assumed that being a communist was not against the law...and certainly not in Chicago-— the communist capital of the USA
How is this proven?
Looking at Obama’s associations, it already seems to me to be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
There are a number of states with code sections like this. I’m pretty sure a lot of them were put in back during the WWII era. I’d have to do some more research to find out for sure. I’m just going on memory of things I’ve read.
And with this piece of paper, sir, you may wipe your ass....
lol; No argument there, but how is this proven in court? I wonder if the law has ever been successfully prosecuted.
I’m assuming you probably have seen this thread, but if not, it’s an education
Obama, the African Colonial
Sending the article out to the Conservative media troups. Everyone send it on!!!
“The International Department, often with the assistance of the KGB, used fronts such as IOJ and World Peace Council, for “active measures”-programs to covertly influence the policies of other nations, to better advance Soviet interests. These might range from spreading propaganda and disinformation to embarassing publicity stunts or hoaxes to destroying the career of an enemy of the Soviet Union , or advancing the career of a friend.”
Sounds like the Obama Administration and the lefty organizations in this country.
