We know Obama and his pals are Communists.. We knew it before the election.. Fact after Fact and Video after Video fell of deaf ears and blind eyes. The only hope is the Democrats themselves stopping him.

Gee, I would have thought many on FR would have been cheering Obama on.
During the election, some FReepers would say, better Obama than a RINO or were sitting at home election day or were voting third party, all assisting Obama to win.

Here is another possible connection that deserves to be examined.

Obama has been proven to have been a member of the “New Party” in Chicago.

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=78945

And he recently appointed the Dean of the “New School” in NY as President of the “Export-Import Bank”.

http://www.newschool.edu/Milano/servonblog.aspx?blogmonth=6&blogyear=2009&blogid=2277

“Fred Hochberg, who served as Milano (The New School) dean from 2004 – 2008, has just been sworn in as the 23rd president of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), the official export credit agency of the United States. In this capacity, Hochberg serves as chairman of the board.

During the Clinton Administration, from 1998 through 2001,Hochberg served as deputy, then acting administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA), where he helped to lead an enhancement of customer service and substantially increased lending to minority and women small-business owners.

We are excited to have a member of the Milano community in such an important position in the Obama Administration.”

This is the bank that made the loan for offshore drilling to Brazil.

“The U.S. government is prepared to provide up to $10 billion in loans to finance the development of massive hydrocarbon reserves off Brazil’s coast, a Brazilian official said Wednesday.

President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Gen. James Jones, discussed the matter with officials this week during a visit to the South American country, Brazilian Planning Minister Paulo Bernardo da Silva told reporters. He said the U.S. Export-Import Bank already has signed a letter of intent in that regard with Brazilian state oil company Petrobras…”

Sarah Palin took heat for mentioning this, but I would bet that if honestly examined it was one Marxist aiding another Marxist.

Who is David Axelrod?

David’s Mother And Radical Leftist Journalism
Myril Axelrod was formerly a writer for PM, a leftist tabloid newspaper published from 1940 to 1948 in New York City.

A feature on the leftist nature of PM was published by City Journal in the Summer of 1993.

The paper was founded by Ralph McAllister Ingersoll, a liberal who thought he could use Communists on his staff to help with the circulation of the paper. The Communists, however, used the paper for their own purposes and he lost influence over the magazine after entering the Army.

In fact, in 1946 five of the staff members of PM’s Washington, DC bureau resigned in protest over the high level of Communist influence within the newspaper. The five resigned after three other members of the staff were fired. According to the five who resigned:

Although not himself a Communist, he [Ralph Ingersoll] has continuously yielded to Communist pressure and has denounced as factionalists those staff members who have tried to keep the party line out of the paper. He has destroyed the confidence of those who believe that PM should be as realistic and critical of Russian foreign policy as in its evaluation of the foreign policy of our own government. (New York Times, June 15, 1946)

The staff was comprised of both Communists and non-Communist liberals. The paper was overtly political and the writers didn’t hide their political biases in their writings. Ingersoll refused to carry advertising because he didn’t want the paper to be influenced by advertisers. City Journal writer Roger Starr noted: “Although every member of PM’s staff was profoundly anti-Hitler, the staff was divided into two cliques: the liberals who regarded the Soviet Union as a slave state, devoid of individual rights, and the liberals who regarded the Soviet Union as a living demonstration of a truly humane society.”

For example, Leo Huberman, a Communist sympathizer, was the labor news editor. I.F. Stone was the Washington, DC correspondent for PM. In the 1980s, a KGB agent fingered Stone as a willing participant in Soviet intelligence operations in the U.S.

The paper, however, was never a financial success without advertising. It received funding from Marshall Field III, a leftist millionaire who kept the paper running for eight years. Field also funded the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training school for radical leftist organizers, which was headed by Saul Alinsky. (Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were trained by Alinsky radicals in Chicago).

Former Communist Eugene Lyons, writing in The Red Decade: The Stalinist Penetration of America, noted that PM’s staff included a former editor of the Daily Worker; another was former editor of The Communist; and a third was a leader of the Communist Youth League; a fourth was a Soviet government official; and a fifth was the former staff cartoonist for the Daily Worker, the official newspaper of the Communist Party, USA.

We have been unable to determine if Axelrod’s mother was a liberal who considered the Soviet Union a slave state or a Marxist-leaning liberal who viewed the Soviet Union as a humane society. The fact remains, however, that her liberalism was obviously infused into the mind of David Axelrod and is what still apparently motivates him to support leftist candidates.

PM’s Radical Staff Writers – Linked To Marxist ‘Black Power’ In 1940s
One of PM’s writers was Earl Conrad, a leftist who also wrote for the Negro Story, a leftist newspaper founded by two black women, Alice C. Browning and Fern Gayden. The ideological nature of this paper was described by Bill Mullen in a historical critique of African-American literature during World War II. Writing in African American Review, Vol. 30; Issue: 1; 1996), Mullen notes:

… [the] Negro Story’s editorial stance, rather than “non-political,” was in many ways close to that of black and white Communists, socialists, and internationalists, whose wartime positions combined pro-labor, pro-black, anti-fascist sentiment in equal measure…

… the editors of Negro Story consciously continued to represent and re-form their critiques of capitalism, American race relations, and imperialism to suit the newly evolving political crises of the mid-1940s, while adding to them a black feminist awareness the magazine’s female editors could hardly avoid.

Among those writing for Negro Story was Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party member who became Barack Obama’s mentor when Obama was living in Hawaii in the 1970s.

Another writer for Negro Story was Jack Conroy, a Marxist who taught at the openly-Communist Abraham Lincoln School in Chicago. Four of his students at this school also wrote for the Negro Story, so the Marxist influence was significant in this magazine.

According to Mullen, the articles and ideas articulated in Negro Story influenced the political educations of Malcolm X “and a generation of Civil Rights activists.”

According to Mullen, the articles and ideas articulated in Negro Story influenced the political educations of Malcolm X “and a generation of Civil Rights activists.”

Malcolm X had been a pimp, a cocaine addict and a thief. He was an unashamed demagogue. His gospel was hatred: "Your little babies will get polio!" he cried to the "white devils." His creed was violence: "If ballots won't work, bullets will." Yet even before his bullet-ripped body went to its grave, Malcolm X was being sanctified. Negro leaders called him "brilliant," said he had recently "moderated" his views, blamed his assassination on "the white power structure" or, in the case of Martin Luther King, on a "society sick enough to express dissent with murder." Malcolm's death, they agreed, was a setback to the civil rights movement. Alias John Doe. In fact, Malcolm X —in life and in death—was a disaster to the civil rights movement.

"It means that that the Communist Party USA was watching Obama from an early age and was willing to help his political career."

The Clinton's convinced me that important and powerful positions are planned well in advance.

I knew zero was big trouble for America when he spoke like a Conservative at the DNC.

The cadre is packed so full amd deep now, even if someone did do something stupid ... the line of succession is way too long to accomplish anything that mattered.

Prolly make things worse.

Our hope is 2010 and 2012

What bothers me even more than the fact Obama is a fraud freely elected by the American people is that SO MANY of us tried to get our Supreme Court Justices to look at the evidence and the questioning of his legitimacy and they wouldn’t do it!! I know for one how many letters I wrote to many officials in the state of my birth, in Florida where I lived and in Washington...plus John McCain and the GOP. NOBODY took any of us serious and now have attached the title BIRTHERS to us as if we are a bunch of nuts to be ignored and ridiculed. I am all for a third party movement if it would get these Communists out of office. There are enough of them in both the Democratic Party AND the Republican Party to continue to destroy our country. We MUST get rid of everyone in Washington DC and start over. Clean out that nest of vipers!!

Breathtaking! Your research is incredible! Thank you.

Side note .. stunning to me also is the connection to Oscar Brown, Jr. .. one of my early introductions to jazz in my teens .. he was a fave. I’ve got his hit .. “Work Song” which I know verbatim and like for the music and rhythm. Duh .. I never really payed close attention to the words ..just sang them by rote. It’s about the chain gang and ‘servin’ my time.’ And there’s another song of his for sure about slavery, as I now recall. When you’re young and foolish .. that’s what you are.

Jarrett is a senior adviser to President Obama
By Henry J. Reske
Posted April 3, 2009

1. Valerie Jarrett was born Nov. 14, 1956, in Shiraz, Iran, where her parents, James and Barbara Bowman, lived for six years. Her father, a doctor, was working in Iran as part of a program that sent American physicians to developing countries.

Of course, they can’t hide it all the time. Valerie slipped up in this video. I read on the internet that supposedly some wealthy unnamed people have hired some top notch private investigators to go after Jarrett and others with Communist ties that Odumbass in his administration. I think the clock is ticking and the pieces of the puzzle will soon complete the picture. He’s in trouble and he knows it.
As soon as Frank Marshall Davis got his divorce, that very year his no good Mom shipped him back to the US to live with Granny and pal around with Frank Marshall Davis. Why did she ship him back as soon as Frank got his divorce and his wife left?

Jarrett, 52, was born of Africa-American parents in Iran, where her physician father was working with an American aid program. She earned a law degree at the University of Michigan, and was serving as Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley’s deputy chief of staff in 1991 when she befriended a young lawyer named Michelle Robinson, and through Michelle, her fiancé, Barack Obama. Jarrett and Obama became close friends, and she gave him guidance on the book he was writing, “Dreams of My Father.”

Business administration

Until joining the Obama Administration, Jarrett was the CEO of The Habitat Company, a real estate development and management company which she joined in 1995. She has been replaced by Mark Segal, a lawyer who joined the company in 2002, as CEO. Daniel E. Levin is the Chairman of Habitat, which was formed in 1971.[8] Jarrett was a member of the board of Chicago Stock Exchange (2000–2007, as Chairman, 2004–2007).

She is also the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Chicago Medical Center,[7] Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Chicago and a Trustee of Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.[9][9] Jarrett serves on the board of directors of USG Corporation, a Chicago based building materials corporation.

Jarrett’s previous year’s income, in a 2009 report, was a $300,000 salary and $550,000 in deferred compensation from The Habitat Executive Services, Inc. The Wall Street Journal also reported she disclosed payments of more than $346,000 for service on boards of directors that reflect her political ties, and work in Chicago real estate and community development. She was paid $76,000 for service as a director of Navigant Consulting, Inc. a Chicago-based global consulting group with governmental clients. She received $146,600 from USG, and $58,000 to serve on the board of Rreef American REIT II, a real estate investment trust based in San Francisco. The Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc., paid her $34,444.[10]
