The now closed down JournoList, has caused considerable controversy in recent weeks. According to its opponents, JournoList teamed up some 400 prominent “progressive” journalists in an effort to smooth Barack Obama’s path to the White House.

There have been accusations that “Journolitstas,” deliberately sought to downplay Obama’s association with the Marxist Rev. Jeremiah Wright and tried to smear conservatives or opposing journalists as “racists.”

This post looks at 106 reported “Journolistas” to look for connections or common threads.

Of the known “Jounolistas” and organizations listed below, many can be linked back to two interrelated groups Democratic Socialists of America, the U.S.’s largest Marxist-based organization and the D.S.A.’s “brain,” the Washington DC-based, far left “think tank,” the Institute for Policy Studies.

Between them, D.S.A. and the I.P.S. dominate or influence several organizations affiliated to JournoList, including:

*The American Prospect – Founded in 1990 by D.S.A. affiliate Robert Kuttner. Current editor-at-large, is leading D.S.A. member Harold Meyerson.

*Mother Jones – Includes D.S.A. member Adam Hochschild on its Board of Directors, plus some D.S.A. affiliated staff and contributors. Hochschild was a supporter of Progressives for Obama.

*Economic Policy Institute - Led by D.S.A. member Larry Mishel and I.P.S. affiliate Jeff Faux and several D.S.A. affiliated board members. This organization has contributed at least three officials to the Obama Administration, including Obama economic adviser and ‘Journolista’ Jared Bernstein.

*Center for American Progress – Several staff and officials are affiliated with D.S.A. and the I.P.S. Writing of the Center’s relationship to the Obama Administration, former Weather Underground terrorist leader and Progressives for Obama supporter Mark Rudd said “There’s a whole govt. in waiting that Podesta has at the Center for American Progress. They’re mostly progressives, I’m told…”

*The Nation – Edited by I.P.S. trustee Katrina vanden Heuvel, who presides over an editorial board which includes D.S.A. members Norman Birnbaum, Barbara Ehrenreich (also an I.P.S. trustee) and Deborah Meier, plus I.P.S. affiliates Tom Hayden and Roger Wilkins.

*In These Times – Created by I.P.S. and run mainly by D.S.A. members and affiliates. Based in Chicago, I.T.T.’s board of editors includes former Weather Underground terrorists and Obama associates Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

*Progressives for Obama – Established by D.S.A. members Barbara Ehrenreich, Tim Carpenter and Bill Fletchers, Jr. Ehrenreich and Fletcher are also I.P.S. affiliates, as were two more of P.F.O.’s six founders: Tom Hayden and Danny Glover.

*Campaign for America’s Future – Founded in 1996, by several dozen D.S.A. members and I.P.S. affiliates, C.A.F. is a major coordinator of the U.S. “progressive” movement. In recent years it has organized several major Take Back America and America’s Future Now! conferences in Washington DC – which are attended by the cream of the U.S. progressive movement, including Barack Obama himself.

Apart from the D.S.A./I.P.S. connections, leftist institutions like The New Republic and the New Century Foundation are well represented. There are two known connections to George SorosOpen Society Institute.

JournoList was not just a bunch of “liberal’ journos with too much time on their hands.

It was a network of high level opinion makers, united by a “progressive” vision for America. They believed that their superior judgment and insight obligated them to present Americans with a view of reality that they would be too stupid and reactionary to grasp unaided.

At least a few, perhaps many, were committed Marxists who saw journalism, not as a profession, but as a revolutionary tool.

This disgraceful episode should dispel forever the “progressive” lie that the American MainStreamMedia and its “liberal” core, can be trusted to uphold the objective standards of their profession.

All the while they were screaming about an imaginary “vast right wing conspiracy” there was an ACTUAL “left wing conspiracy”.

If these were republicans in any carreer field they would be demanding congressional investigations and jail time.

The big lie of Journolist is that it was started to get BHO elected.

It wasn't, the timing of Journolist formation is wrong.

Hillary kicked off her dirty tricks campaign in Nov of 2006.

In Feb of 2007, when Journolist was formed, the MSM was falling all over themselves orchestrating news stories for Hillary's dirty tricks campaign.

In Feb of 2007, these journalist wouldn't have any reason to be planning a way of undermining themselves.

Instead of having to plan to undermine themselves, it would be easier to simply not carry Hillary's water to begin with.

The timing of Journolist formation tells you it was a “PLAN B” in case “PLAN A” didn't work.

At least a few, perhaps many, were committed Marxists who saw journalism, not as a profession, but as a revolutionary tool.

I'm sure there's been a poll that asked "Why did you become a journalist?" with the overwhelming response being "To change the world."

If they had asked that question of "newspapermen" back in 1950, I doubt any of them would've given such an answer.

The Institute for Policy Studies was established by the Samuel Rubin Foundation by his daughter Cora Weiss and her husband. Rubin was a through and through communist who made a fortune in cosmetics having stolen the name Faberge from the original family who had fled for their lives from Russia during the revolution. Cora was involved with the organizaton that claims to have brought Obama Sr. to Hawaii to study economics although he was already in Hawaii before the first group of students from the Kenyan air lift arrived in New York in September of 1959. She was also very involved with the Manhattan Riverside Church conferences on disarmament back when 0 arrived in NY for Columbia. Considering that the only article we can find of his authorship back then was on the topic of anti-militarism and disarmament, I have no doubt in my mind that he also got involved with this church and maybe began a relationship with her back in those days. She was a strong supporter of his presidential campaign and had personal contact with him.

The whole story of the IPS and their global connections and influence are told in this book:

Cora Weiss is an activist who has devoted her adult life to the anti-war, civil rights, and feminist movements. She has served as President of the Samuel Rubin Foundation (named for her father, the Faberge millionaire, secret Communist Party USA member, and identified Comintern agent) since its inception in 1959. Through her work with this foundation, Weiss is a key figure in the Peace and Security Funders Group.

Weiss is an international representative of Peace Action Network, America’s largest anti-nuclear organization. She is also President of the Hague Appeal for Peace, an international network of peace and justice organizations that believe it is possible to permanently abolish war.

Weiss is what Lenin referred to as the “vanguard.” Essentially, Lenin’s “vanguardism” is the belief that the hoi polloi are too stupid to think for themselves. They need talented individuals to tell them what to think. This vanguard will lead to the creation of the workers paradise.

The belief that she can help create a utopia is revealed in Cora’s endowments of political organizations that will “redistribute wealth for social justice.” Her communist sympathies was revealed in her ruthless disregard toward American POW’s. It was revealed in her ruthless disregard of Soviet dissidents arrested and imprisoned for preaching anti-nuke sermons.  It is revealed now in her ruthless disregard for the Afghans who lived in a religious dictatorship and for the Iraqis who still do.

Cora Weiss is a devotee of the communist system that murdered, enslaved, and destroyed-people and nations. Her fanaticism is a function of her political dilettantism.

If anything, Cora Weiss proves that some people have more dollars than sense.

Thanks for posting this additinal information. Cora is a true disciple of her father. When I originally found out about her and all her “peaceful” activities I wanted to know how old she is (pretty ancient I think)and who her children, grandchildren and other close family members and friends are or were and what they have been busy doing and who they have been working with. I really couldn’t find anything except a blog by somebody from India who knew her and was singing her praises spreading the official story about her role in bringing 0 Sr.to Hawaii so I left a comment to correct some of that.
