Skip to comments.Obama’s Third-Party History - New documents shed new light on his ties to a leftist party
Posted on 06/07/2012 9:08:50 AM PDT by Nachum
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as todays headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Partys
In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a crackpot smear. Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party. I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a contract promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Partys Chicago chapter read as follows:
Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party Candidate Contract and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.
Consistent with this, a roster of the Chicago chapter of the New Party from early 1997 lists Obama as a member, with January 11, 1996, indicated as the date he joined.

Will the MSM get their heads out of the Sand & report this important Damaging information about Obama??
Bill Press Hates Our National Anthem, With Its ‘Military Jargon’ and ‘Home of the Brave’ Stuff
I just “tweeted” that this is the one with which he, and all Obama supporters, would feel most “comfortable”:
The Obama National Anthem
“Will the MSM get their heads out of the Sand & report this important Damaging information about Obama??”
Just as soon as the New Nazi Party condemns damaging racist propaganda.
Modern Marxists, leftists, and liberals are just as confused and morally corrupt as the original Nazis.
We should never be so naive that we expect their propaganda machine to speak truth.
Florida Anchor Barbara West Responds to Controversial Biden Interview
WEST: You may recognize this famous quote: From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs. Thats from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?
BIDEN: Are you joking? Is this a joke?
BIDEN: Or is that a real question?
WEST: Thats a question.
BIDEN: He is not spreading the wealth around. Hes talking about giving the middle class an opportunity to get back the tax breaks they used to have.
WEST: What do you say to the people who are concerned that Barack Obama will want to turn America into a Socialist country much like Sweden?
BIDEN: I dont know anybody who thinks that, except the far right-wing of the Republican Party.
The New Party is a sub set of the Democrat party. The Democrat Party is a sub set of the World Workers Party. World Workers is the name used by the worlds communist/socialists to hide from the stupid that they are communists bent on the enslavement of all the people of the world.
Also, something else that's been bugging me: How is it that all these new biographies haven't managed to sort out the question of 0bama’s adoption by Lolo Soetero?
Was he adopted? It seems that he was. Was it according to US or Indonesian law? Was his name officially changed to Barry Soetero? If so, when did he change it back? If he was adopted according to Indonesian law, did he also become an Indonesian citizen? Did he ever travel on an Indonesian passport?
These and a huge host of other questions don't seem to have attracted any attention from the biographers.
I wonder why.
Be aware that this WILL become front page news IMMEDIATELY after the ruins of the Lost City of Atlantis are discovered and found to house a portal to the gates of Hades where pigs fly over ice skating unicorns.
Not only will it never be mentioned, Mr. Kurtz can look forward to multiple instances of his residence being “swatted”. His has probably already been marked for assassination should his imperial majesty, Comrade President Obama the First be reelected. Bill Ayers will be using his Weatherman blueprint that he conceived of in the ‘60s that saw the need to eliminate 25 or 30 million non re-educatable believers in the United States of America.
That was just a youthful indiscretion. Weren’t you 30-something once?/s
Florida Anchor Barbara West Responds to Controversial Biden Interview
O’REILLY: Now after that interview, the Obama campaign complained to the station and Senator Biden said this:
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BIDEN: I was on a television station the other day and doing a satellite feed to a major network in Florida, and the anchor quotes Karl Marx, and says in a sense isn’t Barack Obama Karl Marx? You know, I mean, folks, this stuff you’re hearing, this stuff you’re hearing on this campaign, some of it’s pretty ugly, and some of the innuendo is pretty ugly.
He didn’t really answer the question.
This is major. Thank you for posting the thread.
Maybe the Clinton-Obama contretemps has something to do with the fact that Obama obviously didn’t like the idea of supporting a Democrat Bill Clinton in the 1990’s.
Re #10: WRONG. The Workers World Party is an old split off from the Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party. In the late 1970’s, early 1980’s. the WWP, which had been building up its fanatical base, created two new fronts which attracted a lot of liberal fools, including congressmen/women.
These were the People’s Antiwar Mobilization (PAM) and the All Peoples’ Congress (APC). Their labor front was CULA, Center for United Labor Action; their anti-military front from the 60’s was the American Servicemen’s Union (ASU); its old youth front was the Youth Against War & Fascism, which was changed in the 1980’s.
Today the WWP operates two major fronts and a split off. The International Action Center (IAC), created with the help of former attorney general Ramsay Clark and ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism). The split off faction is known as the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL).
They have never been associated with the Democratic Party though Democratic politicians have actively participated in their fronts, esp. PAM, IAC and ANSWER.
The NEW PARTY was a subset of marxists and socialists who had been affiliated with SDS/WUO, the black marxist movement in Chicago, former CPUSA members who had joined the very expansive marxist Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and other leftist free radicals. They were the people who sponsored and met at Bill Ayres/Bernadine Dohrn’s house to support Obama’s run for leftist former State Senator Alice Palmer’s vacated seat.
Much of this is found at the pioneering website www.keywiki.org and also at www.DiscoverTheNetwork.com.
Trevor Loudon, of Keywiki and the old NewZeal Blogspot.com, was the individual who pioneered research into the New Party.
There was also a New Party in the late 1960’s-late 70’s, led by the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS)- Marcus Raskins and Arthur Waskow, their ally Julius Hobson, a DC marxist, and comedian Dick Gregory, a veteran supporter of communist fronts and causes.
Hope this sets the record straight.
PS: I knew most of the old NEW PARTY people as well as some of the most recent Chicago-based New Party leaders.
In other words they are all intermingled to one degree or another. Would that be an accurate summation?
Of course the media will bury this, but they were so anxious to claim that Sarah Palin had ties to the Alaska Independence Party.
