Skip to comments.Obama Confirms Relationship with CPUSA Member
Posted on 08/16/2008 7:49:18 AM PDT by vietvet67
However, the Obama campaignâs attack on Corsiâs book and Corsi personally acknowledges on pages 9 and 10 of its report that the mysterious âFrankâ in Obamaâs 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, is in fact the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis. This identification by AIM and others hasnât been disputed by the media, which has desperately tried to ignore the Obama-Davis relationship, but the Obama campaign has not responded to it until now.

Messed up post. Sorry. Good read at link.
From the article: “At this point, it is clear that Corsi is to Obama what the National Enquirer is to admitted adulterer and liar John Edwards. The Enquirer exposed Edwards secret life when the rest of the media were refusing to investigate the candidate and making fun of the Enquirer.”
The media is still covering up Obama’s obvious lie about his opposition to the Born-Alive Act.
Obamas Red Mentor Praised Red Army
AIM Report | By Cliff Kincaid | April 30, 2008
Barack Obamas childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA, 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!
Frank Marshall Davis
Obamas Communist Mentor
AIM Column | By Cliff Kincaid | February 18, 2008
"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:
"Obamas 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."
People's Weekly World (PWW), official newspaper of the Communist Party, USA
Source article: Obamas Communist Mentor
"'The Black Book of Communism,'; a scholarly accounting of communisms crimes, counts about 94 million murdered by the supposed champions of the common man (20 million for the Soviets alone), and some say that number is too low."
REALITY: OBAMA MEMOIR CHARACTERIZED FRANK DAVIS MARSHALL AS A FIGURE FROM HIS YOUTH WHO "FELL SHORT" AND WHOSE VIEW OF RACE WAS "INCURABLE"THAT is an admission that "Frank" was Frank Davis Marshall.
They BOTH have friends who bombed the Pentagon.
I really doubt many Americans care about this. Too long ago and Communism just doesn’t seem threatening to most people.
Don’t care much myself. There are much better reasons to oppose him.
If the McCain camp were smart, they would make this their campaign slogan! If shortened a bit, it would also make a fantastic bumper sticker...
Both Obama and Osama have friends who bombed the Pentagon
BTW: you didn't invent this, did you?
At this point, it is clear that Corsi is to Obama what the National Enquirer is to admitted adulterer and liar John Edwards. The Enquirer exposed Edwards secret life when the rest of the media were refusing to investigate the candidate and making fun of the Enquirer.
and if the MSM plays to form, they will studiously ignore the claims in the books, claims btw which are realyl nothing new to those in the internet-know ...
... but completely foreign to the MSM-dependent, information-deprived people.
Thanks this helps clear up some things about the hubub.
“It appalls me at the thought that people would be naïve enough to vote for someone who admits drug use. She says this view stems from 30 years of watching parents wail and cry and talk about the hell their families went through because of marijuana, cocaine and other drugs.”
Having been there, I can certainly relate to this.
True! This is why the McCain campaign must find some more creative ways to get this information the attention it deserves.
Are you kidding?? Haven't you been watching the news lately? Russia invading Georgia, the ChiComs, Hugo Chavez, Cuba, North Korea, etc, etc. The still communist-led so-called "anti-war" movement (of course you wouldn't known about that from the MSM). Anyway, it isn't just Frank Marshall Davis who is or was a communist, it's Reverend Wright, Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, his many communist supporters, here and abroad, on and on. FYI, Wright's Black Liberation Theology is all about communism, and of the worse kind. It advocates the violent overthrow of the American government, actually all Western-style governments. Please visit my FR Home page for a quick lesson on who and what the ObamaRats truly are. Here's a direct link:
Vladimir Putin on "the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the [20th] century":
"World democratic opinion has yet to realize the alarming implications of President Vladimir Putin's State of the Union speech on April 25, 2005, in which he said that the collapse of the Soviet Union represented the 'greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century.'
From the Sino-Russian Joint Statement of April 23, 1997:
"The two sides [China and Russia] shall, in the spirit of partnership, strive to promote the multipolarization of the world and the establishment of a new international order."
So please if anyone has any connections in they media ask them to look at and discredit his claim to Kansas values. He does not have them. He has communist/socialist atheistic values.
I said “most Americans” don’t think it’s important. I believe that to be true.
Black Liberation Theology isn’t really communist in any proper sense of the term. No racially or ethnically based group can be, as communism is by definition internationalist and all about rising above petty national and ethnic differences between people.
BLT actually is much more similar to another variant of socialism. I believe it’s called “national socialism” and was quite popular for a while back in the 30s and early 40s.
I think many if not the majority of Americans would care about this if they were aware of Obama’s inclination's. As to being “too long ago, “ given Obama’s age, how long ago could it have been? As to Communism not being a “threatening” ideology, the deaths and enslavement of millions by Communist regime's testify to it's threat to life and liberty.
What’s black and white and red all over?
If one of us were trying to get a lowest level security job - just ONE of these two things would prevent it - particularly the connection with Davis, not to mention all the other associations with enemies of this country.
But it's okay for the POTUS???
They obviously, after their first flustered attempt to bury the writer rather than answer the charges, couldn't dispute the Davis connection - just trying to water it down. However, what that does is let people who may be dubious about the book, ask - "Hmmm. Well, if they are admitting this is true, then ....?"
Waiting for a U.S. paper to print such a balanced piece.
People will not perceive Communism as a real threat unless it has some chance of taking over. Which at present it does not. So they don’t see it as a threat, but rather as one of dozens of competing wingnut ideologies espoused by losers.
Examples: American Nazi Party, Scientology, Black Liberation Theology, the New Black Panthers, the KKK, Aryan Nations, CPUSA, Christian Identity, La Raza, Al-Fuqra. Etc., etc.
Any of these groups would bring death and destruction in their wake if they ever became strong enough to take over or even to contend for power. Since none are at present in such a position, most Americans just don’t view them as a threat.
Possibly this is short-sighted, but America has a 200+ year history of being short-sighted to long-term threats. So far it’s worked out reasonably well for us.
The MSM will never get this out to the general public. It’s going to take FReepers, bloggers, YouTubers and e-mail circulations by the millions to expose this stuff.
Thank God; with the internet, it doesn’t matter how much money Obama has. We can sit at our computers and offset much of the Dems lies and progoganda with a click of the mouse.
We have to read it in the Canada Press and not MSM. I need to forward this to some non-freepers.
LOL. Good one. Let’s see if the public can answer that one.
What part of the fact that the democrat party has, successfully and with malice aforethought, been totally infiltrated and taken over - in the last 30 years - by the socialist/Marxist party don't you understand?
Obambi is their golden boy, their Polished, programmed Puppet that will give them the power to tip the scales.
Let them control those reigns and neither you, your children nor your grandchildren will live under freedom again.
You might get a wake up call if you knew that the vast majority of the dimRats carry a membership card to the
And they have been able to do this, in large, because of the naivete of Americans who cannot conceive of our freedoms being stripped and our country being taken over.
We remain naive at out peril - and our children's, our grandchildren's and on
You might want to review this clip where Maxine Waters slipped and let the cat out of the bag - much to her own shock...
This little clip should be played on TV 24/7
You may be absolutely correct, but most people don't agree. This what I was commenting on originally.
Just went to Barnes & Noble. the cash register shelf prominently showed an anti Obama book (not Obama Nation) and a pro Obama biography (very thin book) was on closeouts for $7
Obama nation was on the new releases rack for $19
All of these regimes, if afforded the opportunity at a reasonable cost, would gladly expand their geographical territory and influence to create a new "Evil Empire." So anyone who doesn't care about communism and its possible influence upon a major party's presidential candidate like Obama has got his head buried in the sand.
I was taught that a man is known by the company he keeps.
If you go to bed with dogs, you wake up with fleas.
If only the public was constantly reminded of the socialist/marxist agenda and it’s connection to the liberals. To not do so is irresponsible.
It ain’t a cure-all but sure would wake some folks up.
China, and to a lesser extent Vietnam, are no longer communist in any meaningful sense of the word. Many of these countries also referred to themselves as Democratic Republics, when they were and are neither.
China and Vietnam are certainly authoritarian, but they've abandoned the attempt to create a command economy, the primary distinguishing characteristic of Communism. Any country with private property billionaires can't be communist in any sense that Marx or Lenin would recognize.
North Korea, with a hereditary God-Kingship based explicitly on the miltary, also isn't communist in any meaningful sense. Much closer in fact to pre-modern systems of government in that country.
I'll grant you Cuba, sort of. But even there neither the people nor the government really believe in the glorious communist future. Everybody knows the government will eventually collapse, and they're just waiting around to see what will replace it.
I contend that there isn't a single communist state around any more. Not in the sense of idealistic aggressive communism believing it's the wave of the future as existed from 1920 to about 1960 in various places. That ideology is dead as a doornail. It committed extended suicide over an 70 year period in full view (eventually) of the rest of the world.
Does't mean that other dangerous ideologies won't arise, some of the collectivist in nature. And it doesn't mean that communist-like policies won't sometimes be adopted and be equally disastrous when applied. But communism itself as an ideology is dead.
If you disagree, please post a definition of communism as an ideology that distinguishes it from other related brands of totalitarianism and/or socialism. I'll be glad to debate it with you, but you must define your terms first.
I would go with friends that attacked the pentagon........
Obama’s going to need a bigger bus.
Rumor has it he's in the market for a truck. :-)
Sorry, no time right now for additional replies. Gotta go.
They BOTH have friends who bombed the Pentagon."
If the McCain camp were smart, they would make this their campaign slogan! If shortened a bit, it would also make a fantastic bumper sticker... I wish I could take credit for that, but I saw it elsewhere. It IT a good one, though!
I understand that many people think as you do. I just happen to believe that they, and you, are wrong about this.
Black Liberation Theology is not a stalking hore for communism. It’s much more about blackness than economics, which are dragged in only to provide some sort of rationale for their attacks on American economic practices.
If you want to define particular groups as “communist,” you’ll first need to define what communism means from your perspective and what separates it from other groups.

I (ETL) replied: If the McCain camp were smart, they would make this their campaign slogan! If shortened a bit, it would also make a fantastic bumper sticker...
You (stockstrader) responded: I wish I could take credit for that, but I saw it elsewhere. It IT a good one, though!
Just wanted to clarify for others who said what. :)
Anyway, that HAS TO be made into a bumper sticker, if it hasn't been already. That one statement says it all about the ObamaRats!
Again, my shortened bumper sticker version:
Both Obama and Osama have friends who bombed the Pentagon
Absolutely no time now. Get back to you later. Hopefully you will have learned something by then.
I’ll be glad to discuss an issue with you when you have time.
In the meantime, may I suggest that it is rude and arrogant to expect others to sift through many thousands of words you have cut and pasted to your home page? If you have something to say for yourself, which I doubt, say it. Don’t expect others to dig it out for themselves.
Perfect bumper sticker, I like it.
I LIKE IT A LOT!
That bumper sticker is especially needed,,,,
since MSM is insisting on giving Obama a 'free pass' when it comes to his terrorist friend, Bill Ayers!!!

Wrong. It's precisely the opposite. However, Black Liberation Theology isn't just about "economics". It is an extremely violent form of Marxism.
The reason I linked you to my FR Home page is there I have compiled the evidence (the 'cut & paste' as you try again to minimize the problems associated with it.). The page is organized in sections. The first section is on Obama mentor, Communist Party USA member (who wrote poems praising Russia's Red Army) Frank Marshall Davis.
The second on Bill Ayers and his revolutionary communist / "domestic terrorist"(as dopey Sean Hannity only refers to them as) group, The Weather Underground. BTW, Ayers, to this day (2008), is still a revolutionary communist, despite the fact that the widely viewed conservative talk show host never goes there. (Hannity knows next to nothing about the commie left. Neither does Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingram, Bill O'Reilly and most of the other main voices) In fact, Ayers, on his own red-communist-star-headed website, is STILL calling for revolution in the U.S. and elsewhere. (direct link provided at my Home page).
The third section is on Obama's pastor for 20 years, Reverend Wright, and his revolutionary communist Black Liberation Theology. BLT comes out of communist Liberation Theology, which also advocated violence and revolution. Anyway, the section begins with this (how in hell could you have possibly missed it?) glaring quote and photo of Reverend Wright followed by the large bold type headline:
"The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine".
"God Damn America, U.S. to Blame for 9/11"
--Rev Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for twenty years
ETL's FR Home page link:
I am aware of all the information you mention. I just disagree as to its meaning.
IMO the BLT guys aren’t really into communist ideology. They’re just anti-American and anti-whitey, and the anti-capitalism just fits right in and provides them with a convenient economic platform.
The same is true, IMO, of most although not perhaps all leftists in America and Europe. They don’t really believe in Marxist/Leninism, which is what is necessary to be a true commie. In their hearts they don’t really believe in the iron laws of history, and that the proletariat will rise up and establish a classless society of equality for all. They just want to tear down the present system, from which they are utterly alienated. They don’t really have much idea what would replace it, and they’re stupid enough to think any change could only be an improvement.
I think intellectuals in the West, and wannabees, just hate the present system and look around for the system most opposed to it to support. At the moment that is socialism in its many variants, one of the more extreme of which is communism.
I’m still waiting for your definition of communism, which I don’t believe is on your comprehensive home page. If you can’t define an ideology, and how it differs from related ideologies, you certainly cannot logically claim certain groups or individuals to be members.
