Posted on 07/17/2012 4:22:02 AM PDT by Conservative Vermont Vet
When a biographer sets out to understand a president, he naturally begins with mentors, the people who helped shape his character, career and worldview, notes author Paul Kengor.
But when it comes to explaining Barack Obama, the establishment media has shown virtually no interest in delving into the life of the man the president himself held up as a guiding and affirming voice at every major point in his life.
(Excerpt) Read more at wnd.com ...
Set for release today, Kengors The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obamas Mentor is the first in-depth treatment of the man Obama refers to only as Frank in his autobiography Dreams from My Father.
Its just scandalous, Kengor told WND, that we could be four years into the Obama presidency, and only now are we getting a book on the beliefs and thinking and radical past of that mentor.
If you want to hear Davis in Obamas rhetoric and ideas, you can begin with Obamas vow on the eve of his historic election to bring fundamental change to the U.S. the exact term Davis used to describe a communist revolution in the U.S.
Kengor pointed out that when Davis launched the communist Chicago Star newspaper in 1946 he called for a new Declaration of Independence in his first column. Davis wrote that history teaches, alluding to the Marxist dialectic, that any fundamental change advancing society is spearheaded by strong radicals.
Obama, who uses Franks name 22 times in Dreams and refers to him with pronouns in many other instances, describes him in his autobiography as a father figure, with a permanent influence on his life, whose counsel helped him navigate his teen years and guide him into his adulthood.
Kengor notes that like Obama, Davis railed against the tentacles of big business, skewered Wall Street and greedy millionaires, lambasted Republican tax cuts that spare the rich, attacked excess profits and oil companies, and regarded the Catholic Church as an obstacle to his vision for the state.
Kengor thinks the relationship with Davis might be behind Obamas decision to send the bust of Churchill given to the U.S. as a gift after the 9/11 attacks back to Britain.
In his lifetime of teaching about the Cold War, he said, hes encountered only two people who didnt like Churchill: Frank Marshall Davis and Barack Obama.
What kind of a coincidence is that? he asked.
Like communists and their sympathizers throughout the 20th century, Kengor explained, many on the left today display a virulent disdain for anti-communists that causes many in the conservative establishment to back off on examinations of people like Davis.
For liberals, there is nothing that seems to anger them more than anti-communism, he said. Its not that liberals are pro-communist, even though liberals do share certain sympathies with communists on certain things, but liberals absolutely detest anti-communists.
And now, the Left has taken a same attitude towards those who want to expose the dangers of Islam/Sharia, to include, how members of the Muslim BrotherhoodAIDED AND ABETTED BY OBAMAare advancing their cause of Stealth/Civilization Jihad within our Govt (as they toil towards their STATED OBJECTIVE of Destroying our miserable house from within and replacing our Constitution with Sharia) by dismissing, impugning or attacking those who do.
As was the Far Lefts Useful Idiot-like slobbering love affair with Communism, their defense and embrace of Radical Islam is a manifestation of that ol Arab saying: The enemy of my enemy is my friend, such is their HATRED (as is that of B. Hussein Obamas) of the United States.
For an excellent take on this phenomena I highly suggest all read this book:
Obamas most-trusted aide, Valerie Jarrett he describes her as like a sibling to me is the daughter in law of Vernon Jarrett, who worked as a communist activist with Davis in the 1940s.
Valerie Jarrett is also the granddaughter of Robert R. Taylor, who was head of the infamous Chicago Housing Authority and cited in a 1944 report by the Special Committee on Un-American Activities.
Obamas top campaign adviser and the chief crafter of his image and life narrative, David Axelrod, was mentored in his journalism career by David Cantor, a lifelong communist and alleged paid Soviet agent who was educated in Stalins Soviet Union, and Don Rose, a member of suspected communist front organizations.
David Cantors father, Harry Jacob Carter, was secretary of the Boston Communist Party.
Axelrods mother worked for a magazine known for its communist leanings.
Kengor said the only thing that kept him going in the research without losing my mind and jumping off a cliff was knowing I was going to be reporting this and that others would see it.
There were times I was sick to my stomach, he said. WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE? DO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ELECTED IN NOVEMBER 2008?
SHORT ANSWER: At least here at FR, "YES WE DO!"
And therein lies the rub and dilemma for those who claim to be Conservatives and especially, Patriots.
Can one be a True Conservative and Patriot and ALLOWthrough commission or omissionsomeone who wants to Change our Republic to be reelected and NOT have it weigh heavily on their conscience?
As what Obama's intent was/is and has accomplished in his 1st term leaves NO doubt as to what he is and moreover, what he WOULD continue to do if reelected, it now falls on those to decide who to vote for, vote AGAINST, or sit this one out.
As someone who is Catholic and oppose the Social Issues which have been foisted upon us (Roe v Wade, Gay Marriage, Dont Ask, Dont Tell, Big Govt, 2nd Amend etc.) and as as a Vietnam Veteran who (pushing 70 and has seen and lived thru much) who loves his country more than life, I must weigh the options presented to us:
Yes, Mitt is a Flip Flopper, more Liberal than not; has a terrible record as Gov of MA., is wishy-washy, has changed his mind on Gay Marriage, Abortion, 2nd Amend., etc, BUT, that was years ago and as Gov on [a] state.
What I/we DONT know--FOR CERTAIN--is HOW he would govern as President!
Conversely what I/we DO know--FOR CERTAIN--is HOW Dear Leader WILL govern if reelected!
While there are some here who continue to disparage, attack, impugn and condemn Mitt (and his religion, Mormonism) because of his position on Social Issues, NONE, have YET, been able to provide a [SINGLE] example of ANTHING he has EVER said or DONE which would lead one to believe he HATES the United States, or would do anything to HARM it, much less Change it (read: DESTROY) as we KNOW B. Hussein Obama WILL if given, half a chance ..or a 2nd term.
Thus, to me, my decision is pretty cut and dry and simple. I will vote for the Lesser of 2 Evils in order to rid ourselves of the Worst of the 2 Evils!
Immanuel Kant, Observations of the Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime
All of the individuals who formed his life should face prosecution. Oh, that I could have the authority to go after them. ALL of these people need to be brought to justice for what they are doing and have already done to destroy our society and government.
Does this mean that Communists are in control of the Media?
Yeah: I think it does.
They are hiding their own. Been doing it for years.
Nothing like a Free Press, I wish we had one.

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 (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!
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."

Barack Obama, Frank Marshall Davis, Vernon Jarrett - One Degree of Seperation
New Zeal blog ^ | Oct 17, 2008 | Trevor Loudon
"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?"
"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. Daviss 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.
Takaras 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.

I would recommend THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT authored by Aaron Klien WND Books. 2010, ISBN 13 Digit: 978-1-935071-87-7 as well. It most probably contains almost verbatim what one will find in UNITED IN HATE. As well as RADICAL IN CHIEF by Stanley Kurzt, a very in-debt analysis of all those who mentored, associated via. the various far left Foundations, early years associations with the Chicago thugs etc.. Nice reference book in many ways for those who like very detailed information.
Proverbs 15:13 ~ The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.
Proverbs 11:8 ~ The righteous is delivered from trouble, and it comes to the wicked instead.
Proverbs 11:27 ~ He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, but trouble will come to him who seeks evil.
There was certainly more than a hint of these toxic facts apparent during “O’s” campaign!
The MSM (as ever, shamefully partial to Liberals with even minimal stature) chose NOT to pursue what, in the case of Conservative candidates, would have constituted freshly butchered red meat!
I am about to order some books from Amazon this week (albeit, mostly adventure/mystery for light, enjoyable summer reading) but will add those to my list.
Report: Obama mentored by Communist Party figure
Investigations show ties to radicals who shaped him, launched career
I don’t think you will be disappointed. Radical IN CHIEF does get very detailed. Not for a quick read. Enjoy.
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA
From the website of the Communist Party, USA...
(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
After the election....
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-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples 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 peoples 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.
Isnt 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?
Cant 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 isnt 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!
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
Well, we don't know "FOR CERTAIN" that you're capable of pouring pee from a boot if the instructions are inscribed on the sole.
But AT BEST, Mr. Etch-a-Sketch is a pig in a poke, a surprise package, and we must disregard his entire political history to think there is anything delightful in there.
You want a different scoundrel in the White House? Appeal to fear. Urge people to vote their fear of Obama. But don't insult their intelligence by saying we don't know how Romney would govern. He's an incorrigible repeat offender.
I hope you never sit on a parole board.
From the Washington Times, April 30, 2012:
New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has [since deleted] an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."
"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.
The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning. ..."
Yahoo search results for "Fundamentally Transforming The United States Of America":
"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."
“Obamas run for the Illinois state Senate was launched by a fundraiser organized at Ayers and Dohrns Chicago home by Alice Palmer. Palmer had named Obama to succeed her in the state Senate in 1995, when she decided to run for a U.S. congressional seat.
Nine years before Palmer picked Obama to be her successor, she was the only African-American journalist to travel to the Soviet Union to attend the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, according to an article Palmer wrote in the CPUSA newspaper, Peoples Daily World, June 19, 1986.
There has been no explanation of why Ayers et al. played a role in launching Obamas political career, Kincaid wrote.”
