Now About Obama's Teenage Years!
American Thinker ^ | May 15, 2012 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 05/15/2012 2:10:30 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

Now that it has been established that a candidate's teenage years help define the man to come, it might be time to take a new look at the adolescent Obama and his then-mentor, the late Frank Marshall Davis.

I would guess that not one Obama voter out of one hundred could identify Davis by name, and I doubt if one media person out of a thousand has read his memoir, Livin' the Blues. This is unfortunate on any number of levels. For one, Davis's book captures the ebb and flow of 20th-century black American life as well as any ever written.

For another, no one individual influenced the young Obama more than Davis has. This combination should have made Davis a staple of the multicultural canon and a pin-up in every reporter's cubicle, but it did neither. Like Boo Radley, Davis remains in the shadows for one reason: the media fear what the light would do to him. For all of Davis's gifts, and they are many, his lifelong flirtation with darkness makes him a little too creepy for his own display case in the Barack Obama presidential library.

Barack Obama, from Dreams from My Father, Three Rivers Press, New York, Revised Edition, 2004, ISBN 1-4000-8277-3, p. 76-7:
"But by the time I met Frank [Frank Marshall Davis] he must have been pushing eighty, with a big, dewlapped face and an ill-kempt gray Afro that made him look like an old, shaggy-maned lion. He would read us his poetry whenever we stopped by his house, sharing whiskey with Gramps out of an emptied jelly jar."

Barack Obama's Marxist Mentor [Frank Marshall Davis]

Obama’s Red Mentor Praised Red Army
AIM Report | By Cliff Kincaid | April 30, 2008

Barack Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA (CPUSA), wrote a poem dedicated to the Soviet Red Army. “Smash on, victory-eating Red Army,” he declared. He also wrote poems attacking traditional Christianity and the work of Christian missionaries.

The “Red Army” poem goes beyond hoping for the communists to beat the Nazis in World War II and hails the Soviet revolution. It says:

Show the marveling multitudes
Americans, British, all your allied brothers
How strong you are
How great you are
How your young tree of new unity
Planted twenty-five years ago
Bears today the golden fruit of victory!

Obama’s Communist Mentor
AIM Column | By Cliff Kincaid | February 18, 2008

excerpt...

"through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his 'poetry' and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just 'Frank.'

The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations."

Frank Chapman, a CPUSA supporter, has written a letter to the party newspaper hailing the Illinois senator's victory in the Iowa caucuses:

"Obama’s victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle. Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary 'mole,' not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through."

"Why did Barack Obama move to Chicago? Why did he choose a city famous for its corruption and distrust of outsiders as a launching pad for his political career? Did Obama's boyhood mentor, life long communist Frank Marshall Davis influence that choice?"
http://newzeal.blogspot.com/2008/10/obama-file-38-barack-obama-frank.html

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

From the Traditional Values Coalition, March 13, 2008:

"At some point in the 1970s when Barack was attending school in Hawaii, he became acquainted with Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party, USA. Davis had moved to Hawaii in 1948 from Chicago where he had been involved in Marxist-related activities.

In Hawaii, he became a mentor to Barack Obama, the man who seeks the Presidency of the United States.

Kathryn Waddell Takara, Ph.D., a Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii, has written at least two lengthy analysis of Frank M. Davis’s political activities both in Hawaii and while he was living in Chicago. Takara created the first Black Studies department at the U of H in 1971 and is an associate of such notable leftists as Angela Davis and Stokely Carmichael.

Takara’s paper, 'Frank Marshall Davis: Black Labor Activist and Outsider Journalist: Social Movements In Hawaii,' describes Davis’ radical activities in Hawaii as both a writer and labor organizer.

How this committed Communist became a mentor to Barack Obama remains a mystery, but it is likely that his mother was somehow involved in far left activities in Hawaii and met Davis through her left-wing network on the University of Hawaii campus. Perhaps an enterprising reporter could ask Senator Obama how he met Davis and what sort of influence he may have had on him. Likewise, one can only speculate on the influence his rebellious, left-wing mother had on his political beliefs and aspirations.

You’re welcome. Hard to believe or accept that so much of this info was out prior to the 2008 election and STILL so many mindless, ignorant jerks went out and voted for him. The “Reverend” Wright stuff alone should have done him in, even if it didn’t include the fact that his “Black Liberation Theology” was communist in nature.

"The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979"

Well, that's interesting because whoever signed this, the day AFTER it was postmarked, was in Hawaii, **ostensibly**, in 1980. BTW, I think they messed up creating this document which would seem to be manufactured.

ETL, I had read much of this during the last election and tried to educate the people around me. They accused me of being an idiot, a right-wing wacko, conspiracy theorist, etc. And then, they voted for him! This time around, I think the same people who were aware of his shady past before will still be the primary ones aware of it now. The vast majority of the voters in this country continue watching the Kardashians, American Idol, Walking Dead, and get their news from Jon Stewart, MSNBC and SNL. Even when the truth is shoved in their faces, they won’t believe it. We’re doomed.

When trying to explain Obama’s shady past, or what we know of it anyway... was told by my cousin “If that is true, why don’t I see it on the news. You are just getting crazy stuff off the internet.”

I gave up at that point.

I’ve given up, too! I can’t bear to be around any libs anymore, even family. My brother-in-law, who I used to respect and love, voted for him and is still blaming everything on Bush and Cheeeney (as he calls him) and their “big oil” friends. There is no talking to him. Awhile ago, we had to agree not to mention politics around each other, but it was too late. Now, every time I see him, I am thoroughly disgusted and our relationship is changed forever.

I suspect most Dems don’t care about Obama’s past. By their nature, most libs and Dems are profoundly ignorant about anything that happened before yesterday. It would not matter a whit to them if it were proved that as a teen, Obama was a card-carrying commie who quoted directly from Mao’s Little Red Book or Marx’s Das Kapital. Most Dem knuckleheads would not have a clue to the identity of Mao or Marx, nor would they care when told. They only care about one thing: Obama is the person who will shower material manna (taxpayer money) from heaven on them. They’re only perturbed because the manna hasn’t started to flow yet.

Part of the problem is that many of the younger generation don’t really know what communism is. A generation ago, “communist” was about the worst thing you could call someone. It had real impact because people were aware what an evil communism is.
Now, for many young people, learning that someone is a communist has no more effect than learning he is a Rotarian. Our public school system has so dumbed down an entire generation, communism no longer generates the revulsion it deserves.

A Landslide Mandate For Change

A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming

Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:

Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.

In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.

We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.

Isn’t it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism – no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these things are within reach now!

Not that I think the draft registration is anything but BOGUS ... I would think that this is the span of years from when he returned from Indonesia until he left for Occidental College in California. It would not be unreasonable to expect that Obama might have returned to Hawaii during summer vacation.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
FoxNews/Hannity's America
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]

(some key excerpts)

["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jose_Diaz-Balart]

JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.

I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."

SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

“Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and “revolution” as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism,[8] they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.”

Use the whole thread of posts, plus my FR Home page and the many articles and links there. There is no reason on Earth this commie POS phony should get reelected with all the facts out about him. Hopefully what I suggested is an adequate “one-stop” resource.

"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."

One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.

As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other,” the witness told Fox News at the time. “So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said they’d been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.”

He said the man with a nightstick told him, “’We’re tired of white supremacy,’ and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, ‘OK, we’re not going to get in a fistfight right here,’ and I called the police.”...”

My liberal friends said the same kinds of things. They acted like I was reading one crazy dude on the Internet with the crazy rumors I came up with. Obama a communist. Obama gay.

When I told one Edwards voter that he was having an affair and knocked up the chick, she excoriated me in an email with “John Edwards would NEVER do that! His wife is dying of cancer! He is very dedicated to helping people! “ Bla bla bla. You can picture my Cheshire cat smile when he was busted. Just crazy conspiracies online, huh??

I know how you feel.

I mentioned the Obama-gay thing to someone this past weekend and they actually laughed out loud and said I was really out there with that one.

This is someone that I’ve been keeping up to date on the Cold Case Posse, Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Fast and Furious stuff but the gay things was a step to far for them.

Go figure?

By the way, this experience made me think that, if the gay rumors are true, it will be a complete shock for a lot of people out there.

I was really surprised by the reaction.

But then again, most people have never even heard of Larry Sinclair, Man’s Country, Reggie & Kal.

The media won't show the facts, and even if they did, half the nation (the half that votes for Democrats) are brain-dead-stupid and/or Evil.

There are so many ignorant voters out there that if you PROVED he was a communist, most of them would say "What's a Communist?"

There are just too many people who do not have a reference to the real world. We have become "Idiocracy."

At this point, I don't think it matters what comes out about him, the media will run interference for it. In order for derogatory information regarding Obama to have an impact it not only has to get out to the tv screens of America, it has to be hammered constantly, the way they did Sarah Palin.

Let's face it. American Media constitutes an enemy forces fifth column, and we need to figure out a way to take them out. They all need to be unemployed and unemployable.

Why can't some wealthy Republicans get together and start up a few new media outlets? Open up some more 'fair & balanced' universities?

There’s an entire collective machine that purposely ignores (like the MSM) this stuff or puts ridiculous spin on it.

If you haven’t watched this, you should. In the last days it says people will embrace great delusion. What is said here is plainly spoken, yet no MSM reporter has ever called him on this, when his claimed birth date is nearly 4-1/2 years prior to what it possibly could have been if it was truly a result of this event.

Yes, I have experienced the same thing, multiple times.

SNL, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN are “truth” to them. When CBS repeatedly “interviews” Politico, it’s supposed to represent “objective opinions”. Pravda is no doubt taking notes.

The thinking people I know, are stunned when I show them things. Things the MSM doesn’t want them to know.

I think the problem with this is that once people get wealth, they like to start socializing with all the "right" sort of people. It is the "upper crust" that seems to be the root of our idiocy nowadays.

In the Book "Leftism Revisited" the Author asserts that every socialist movement in History was created, nurtured and financed by the wives and children of wealthy men.

Marx and Engles were both born with silver spoons in their mouths.

No, the problem is that extreme wealth and extreme poverty tend towards socialism. We should be thankful for the few exceptions, such as the Koch Brothers et al.

I think the first thing we should do about the media is to constantly denounce them as biased, and try to avoid products that finance them. Beyond that, people are making efforts to boost alternative media. (Glen Reynolds, Glen Beck) If we can expand the source of news material and entertainment, then eventually the competition will bring them down. Alternative Media is already hurting the newspaper industry, perhaps when it eventually kills Newspapers, next in line will be the New York/ Los Angeles networks\entertainment centers.

"Part of the problem is that many of the younger generation don’t really know what communism is."

THIS.

And it's completely intentional on the part of the communist subversives who work tirelessly to overthrow our republican form of government.

By hook or by crook.
