Skip to comments.Mitt Romney is Too Far to the Right . . .
Posted on 07/24/2012 5:51:16 AM PDT by IbJensen
The casual consumer of news hears it all the time and not just from Democratic pundits. Reporters, pundits, and concern trolls in the media fret that Romney has had to move too far right. Hes just too conservative.
These same people never stop to examine Barack Obama. Between the two, Barack Obama has repeatedly surrounded himself with people who actually dont much care for the United States. Writing that may anger people, but it is actual, factual, fact.
Instead of considering if Mitt Romney is too far to the right, perhaps we should consider if Barack Obama is too far to the left.
Barack Obama notes in his fictionalized autobiography that everyone bought and no one read that Frank Marshall Davis was an influence in his life. The Obama campaign disputes how much of an influence Davis was, but he had enough of an impact that Obama took time in Chicago to visit places Davis lived.
Davis was an activist communist and friend of Obamas grandfather.
Barack Obama left Hawaii, went to Chicago, and sat in Jeremiah Wrights church for 20 years. Among other things, Jeremiah Wright mouthed off from the pulpit about the U.S. of KKK A.
When he got his jump start into the major political arena, Barack Obama held a fundraiser in the living room of terrorists who had tried to kill police officers and blow up the Pentagon.
In fact, one of the terrorists, Bill Ayers, told the New York Times on September 11, 2001:
I dont regret setting bombs, Bill Ayers said. I feel we didnt do enough.
During Barack Obamas political career in Chicago, he headlined an event for the Democratic Socialists of America and joined the communist rooted New Party in Chicago as a way to get leverage on the ballot.
In the White House he appointed Van Jones, a self-described communist and Kevin Jennings who has his own far-left outside the mainstream issues.
And now out on the campaign trail, Barack Obama is peddling grade school Marxism in the name of fairness.
The left may keep up the drumbeat on Mitt Romneys conservatism, but Id like to think some Super PAC somewhere will make sure the public knows what the media wont tell them Barack Obama has spent a lot of time surrounded by people who hold the founding ideals of this country in contempt.
It is an inconvenient fact reasonable people are not supposed to discuss, but it also happens to be true.
The Republicrats must do a better job vetting and training its candidates. Too many of them went to Washington two years ago with promises to curb spending. And what happened? No change the national debt continues to increase at an increasing rate. If Tea Party candidates continue to join the establishment once they get to Washington the Tea Party will end up nothing more than a footnone on this page of history.
... 3, 2, 1 ...
Obviously they’re getting their talking points from Hugo Chavez
Mr. RomneyCARE supports RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE ... not the "right".
Mr. RomneyCARE supports TARP ... not the "right".
Mr. RomneyCARE supports 911 Victory Mosque ... not the "right".
Mr. RomneyCARE supports DEATH PANELS ... not the "right".
Mr. RomneyCARE supports SHARIA ... not the "right".
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
So what are we to do?
Let this phony be re-elected and allow him to stack the SCOTUS with like-minded haters of America?
The one reason to vote for Romney is that he isn’t Obama.
This may be our last chance to weed the malcontented hogs slopping at the central socialist government’s trough to stop running the elections! This includes, of course, the political hogs who help Obozo ruin the nation, our economy and our lives.
Deceptive RINO Romney is a PROVEN LIAR regarding judge appointments.
OR ....do you JUST NOT CARE?
The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.
The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.
- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006
"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,
[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006
"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."

Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys. He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."

"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!
Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]
(some key excerpts)
["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008
In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.

Im not voting for the lesser of two evils. Im proudly voting for, (and contributing to) Romney.
If you seriously think Romney and Obama are interchangeable, you really need to learn a lot more about Obama. There simply is no comparison. On the basis of national security alone, Obama must go. This is not to say we shouldn't try to push Romney every bit of the way, now and following the election.
"In a private conversation about the planned U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe, President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for space on the issue.
This is my last election, Obama told Medvedev. After my election I have more flexibility.
I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, Medvedev said, referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin."
Obama was talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones. Here is what they said:
Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but its important for him to give me space.
Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you ...
Obama: This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.
Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.
This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility. That statement tells us much about the presidents mindset.
The specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear implication from the presidents comments is that he cannot tell the American people before the election what he plans to do after the election.
In addition, there is the phrase on all these issues, implying more is at stake than just missile defense.

Obama Pledges Cuts in Missile Defense, Space, and Nuclear Weapons Programs
February 29, 2008 :: News
A video has surfaced of Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama talking on his plans for strategic issues such as nuclear weapons and missile defense.
The full text from the video, as released, reads as follows:
Thanks so much for the Caucus4Priorities, for the great work you've been doing. As president, I will end misguided defense policies and stand with Caucus4Priorities in fighting special interests in Washington.
First, I'll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq. I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.[not win it -etl]
Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.
I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.
I will not weaponize space.
I will slow our development of future combat systems.
And I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.
Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert [they are NOT on "hair-trigger alert" now -etl], and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.
You know where I stand. I've fought for open, ethical and accountable government my entire public life. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept. I don't posture on defense policy and I don't take money from federal lobbyists for powerful defense contractors. As president, my sole priority for defense spending will be protecting the American people. Thanks so much.

2008 Pentagon Report (March 2008):
China's Growing Military Space Power
By Leonard David
Special Correspondent, SPACE.com
March 6, 2008
GOLDEN, Colorado A just-released Pentagon report spotlights a growing U.S. military concern that China is developing a multi- dimensional program to limit or prevent the use of space-based assets by its potential adversaries during times of crisis or conflict.
Furthermore, last year's successful test by China of a direct-ascent, anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon to destroy its own defunct weather satellite, the report adds, underscores that country's expansion from the land, air, and sea dimensions of the traditional battlefield into the space and cyber-space domains.
Although China's commercial space program has utility for non- military research, that capability demonstrates space launch and control know-how that have direct military application. Even the Chang'e 1 the Chinese lunar probe now circling the Moon is flagged in the report as showcasing China's ability "to conduct complicated space maneuvers a capability which has broad implications for military counterspace operations."

"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."

Romney is too far to the right to be a Democrat, by today’s standards, perhaps. This whole attempt to brand Romney as a right-wing conservative is laughable.
Russia has revealed details of its ambitious plan to upgrade its army over the next ten years, planning to spend US$650 billion on the project.
The unveiled large-scale plans of the Russian defense ministry propose the spending of vast sums of money up to 2020.
First and foremost, Russian defense will focus on the development of strategic nuclear weapons, construction of over 100 military vessels for Russian Navy, including construction of four originally French-made Mistral-class amphibious assault ships, and the introduction into the Air Force of over 1,000 helicopters and 600 military planes, including fifth generation PAK-FA fighter.
Most of the military hardware will be equipped with next-generation weaponry.
China and Russia launched joint naval exercises Sunday in the Yellow Sea between the east coast of mainland China and the Korean peninsula.
Sixteen Chinese surface vessels and two submarines as well as four Russian warships will take part in the six days of drills. ...
China and Russia have conducted four bilateral and multilateral military exercises since 2005.

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. ..."
Ya do know that the “Too Far to the Right” meme is being put out to manipulate the public and has absolutely nothing to with reality?
The Democrats, through the MSM, have been moving mainstream Americans farther and farther to the left. A 1960’s Democrat would consider the ‘Pubbies to be liberal panty waists and Democrats to be outright commies.
so what are you saying I should do?
vote for your socialist because he is better than their socialist?
vote for someone who enacted their own assault weapons ban?
vote for the father of the 50 dollar abortion?
vote for the author of fubocare (mcromney care)?
vote for the largest tax and spender the republicans have ever put forth?
vote for the man who took pride in stacking his states court system with liberals?
vote for someone who stands for EVERYTHING that I am against, and against EVERYTHING that I stand for?
Sorry pal, I have my standards, as low as they are.
mcromney does not even come close to meeting the minimum requirements of my standards.
The question is as follows: Do you support socialism or do you not support socialism?
Either you do or you don’t.......
I await your answer.
Let's see you come up with something which even "Closely" resembles this?
What's that I hear?
Simple. I do not vote for repugnant candidates just because they carry an “R” after their name. Willard IS the most vile and repugnant, anti-Conservative and anti-Republican candidate imaginable. The damage this cretin could wreak on the party and the Conservative movement could reach Nixonian proportions (if not worse). We wouldn’t even have ZeroCare today had Willard’s own Socialist plan not been enacted by him in Massachusetts. And this is what is going to save the republic ?
If he is the nominee, I vote for Virgil Goode. Why vote for one of the two annointed big government cabal evils ?
So vote for the RED RINO Socialist over the Stalinist Mohammadan. Why that’ll save the country !
[Romney has had to move too far right]
Comrade Corporate Collectivist Romney could move right until the Sun flames out — but it wouldn’t/doesn’t change the fact that he’s nothing but a leftist Quisling carpetbagger.

The Communist. Frank Marshall Davis: THE UNTOLD STORY OF BARACK OBAMAS MENTOR
July 18, 2012
Front Page Magazine
Frontpage Interviews guest today is Paul Kengor, Ph.D., a bestselling author whose works include Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century; and The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism.
He is the author of the new book, The Communist. Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obamas Mentor.
Ok, so who was Frank Marshall Davis?
Kengor: Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Party USA (CPUSA) number 47544, was a 20th century American who wrote pro-Soviet propaganda in newspaper columns and was a loyal Soviet patriot.
FP: What do you mean by loyal Soviet patriot?
Kengor: While it will shock naïve liberals who still dont grasp the horrors of communism, readers of FrontPage will understand. Leftist Americans who took the extraordinary step of joining CPUSA swore a loyalty oath to the USSRStalins USSR in the case of Frank Marshall Davis.
FP: When did Frank Marshall Davis join the Communist Party?
Kengor: Remarkably, he joined early in World War II, after the Hitler-Stalin Pacta period when many Party members bolted the Party because they were outraged at Stalin signing that pact with Hitler. That pact, of course, precipitated the invasion of Poland and World War II. Jewish American communists in particular were aghast. The man in Moscow to whom they swore their unwavering allegiance had helped pave the way for the Holocaust.
I must note that it was also through this group that Davis would work with Robert Taylor, who just happened to be the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett.
FP: Thats remarkable. Valerie Jarrett today is Obamas right-hand woman in the White House.
Kengor: Yes, and its even more eerie than that. Frank Marshall Davis, Obamas mentor, also worked with Vernon Jarrett in these circles.
Vernon Jarrett was Valeries father-in-law. And its worse still. Davis, Obamas mentor, also worked with Harry and David Canter, two other Chicago communists. The Canters mentored a young man named David Axelrod in Chicago in the 1970s.
SO, THE TROIKA THATS ARGUABLY RUNNING AMERICA TODAYOBAMA AND VALERIE JARRETT AND DAVID AXELRODALL HAVE COMMON BONDS IN CHICAGOS COMMUNIST CIRCLES FROM THE 1940S. THEIR MENTORS KNEW EACH OTHER. (Emphasis Added)
I know this is incredible, but its true. You couldnt make this up. No one would believe it. WERE BEING GOVERNED BY GHOSTS FROM CHICAGOS COMMUNIST PARTY GLORY YEARS. (Emphasis added)
FP: Are there other people that Frank Marshall Davis worked with in Chicago who have relevance today?
Kengor: Oh, yes, I could go on and on. At the Chicago Star, the communist newspaper for which he wrote and was the founding editor-in-chief (1946-48), Davis regularly shared the op-ed page with Senator Claude Red Pepper, who at that exact time was writing the bill to nationalize healthcare in the United Stateswhich Davis himself advocated in his columns. By the way, Peppers chief of staff, who wrote that bill, was Charles Kramer, who we now know was working for the KGB under the codename mole.
Another Davis comrade at the Star was William Patterson, who actually mentored Frank Marshall Davis and was probably more important than any other figure in bringing Davis into the Party.
FP: William Patterson was a hardcore communist.
Kengor: Yes, and among his legacies is the Kremlins Peoples Friendship University, which he helped plan in the 1960s. Peoples Friendship University became better known as the Patrice Lumumba Friendship University, a Kremlin grooming school for third-world revolutionaries.
This university, the third largest in the USSR, schooled some of the worlds leading terrorists. Distinguished alumni include Irans Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas (You know, Obamas Palestinian Authoritys PEACE PARTNER?
Among this band of rogues, Mohamed Boudia was a top figure in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), one of the cores branches of the PLO. He was in charge of PFLP terrorist operations in Europe, placed there by the KGB, where he worked with Soviet-backed terror cells in East Berlin.
There he also worked with the Black September Organization. Among Boudias most dastardly actsWHICH INVOLVED MAHMOUD ABBASwas the brutal murder of Jewish Olympians in the 1972 Munich massacre.
(Abbas--like his predecessor Yasser Arafata Terrorists? Who would have thunk it?)
FP: So, Patterson helped mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who, in turn, mentored Obama?
FP: In your book, you say that Daviss first major Party job was editing and writing columns for the Chicago Star in the late 1940s. You found a lot of similarity in what Davis was writing and what Obama says today.
Kengor: Yes. Davis constantly bashed Wall Street, big oil, profits, GOP tax cuts, the wealthy and millionaires. He called for taxpayer funding of universal healthcare and public works projects. He targeted General Motors. He championed Russian foreign policy, especially at the expense of countries like Poland. I could go on and on. The similarities are chilling.
FP: Was there a particular Davis column that really struck you?
Kengor: Yes, and I use it to open the book. In a November 1946 column, Davis wrote: Im tired of being beaned with those double meaning words like sacred institutions and the American way of life which our flag-waving fascists and lukewarm liberals hurl at us day and night.
This struck me because its so similar to Obamas quoting of Davis in Dreams from My Father. There, Obama quoted Davis saying: Theyll train you so good, youll start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that sh-t.
FP: Okay, when did Obama meet Davis?
Kengor: According to an eyewitness, they were first introduced in 1970. It was Obamas grandfather, Stanley Dunham, who made the introduction. Dunham, himself a leftist, saw in Davis a potential role model and black father figure that Obama was lacking. Davis knew and influenced Obama throughout Obamas adolescence in the 1970s, right up until he went to college. In fact, those disparaging words about the American way were Daviss parting words to Obama before Obama headed off to Occidental College.
FP: You interview someone who knew Obama at Occidental and says that Obama was an actual communist at Occidental.
Kengor: Thats right. The person is Dr. John Drew, who Ive interviewed at length and remain in regular contact with today. Hes totally credible, no axe to grind, no story to sell. Drew contacted me because he knew I was researching Davis. Drew sees himself as the missing link between Obamas time with Frank Marshall Davis and with later radicals like Bill Ayers and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Drew himself was a Marxist at the time, and Obama was introduced to him as a fellow Marxistas one of us. Drew told me about Obamas belief in what Drew described as the Frank Marshall Davis fantasy of revolution. Drew, who was a more realistic, chastened Marxist, WAS STUNNED AT OBAMAS UNWAVERING BELIEF IN THE IMMINENCE OF A MARXIST REVOLUTION IN THE UNITED STATES. (Emphasis Added)
FP: Was Davis a national-security threat? Kengor: The federal government thought so. In the book, I present documents from Daviss 600-page FBI file in which the FBI repeatedly re-certifies Davis on the Security Index. Thats a very serious thing. It means that, in the event of a war breaking out between the US and USSR, Obamas mentor could have been placed under immediate arrest.
Needless to say, thats quite unprecedented for a presidential mentor. With a mentor like that, Barack Obama should have trouble getting a security clearance for a standard, entry-level government job. Instead, Americans elected him right into the Oval Office.
FP: Incredible, that is really something. Paul Kengor, how would you crystallize the main message/thesis of your book? Kengor: Mentors matter. Any study of any president starts with mentors. We all know that. And yet, why have we ignored this mentor to this particular president? Well, the answer is clear from my book:
"Because no president in all of American history
has ever had a mentor as radical as Frank Marshall Davis.
No presidenteverhas had a mentor who was a literal
card-carrying member of the Communist Party."
Lets see: A Documented DIRECT LINK between the 2 Greatest Evils Mankind has ever known (the Practitioners of Communism and Evil Empire and the Practitioners of the Religion of Pieces who BOTH HATE FREEDOM, Christianity/Judaism and had/have as their GOAL, Global Hegemony and the Destruction of the United States ..AND BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA being LINKED (hell, an AFINITY and EMBRACE) of BOTH?
Say it aint so?
Ah, but nuttin to see here; just move along all ye Patriots who love their country
(AND ESPECIALLY ALL YOU VETS WHO SERVED IN HARMS WAY AND PUT IT ALL ON THE LINE FOR YOUR COUNTRY) .
and do not want to see someone as Dangerous and a THREAT to our Republic reelected.
Just move along and listen to the delusional Hate Mitt and Mormon Paul-Bots cuz they KNOW Mitt is more dangerous, eeevil and a threat than is B. Hussein Obama.
Of course they will: ANY moment now, they will provide us all with PROOF that Mitt is as dangerous and a threat to our Security and Survival as is Dear Leader ..
Some of you post a picture of Romney signing legislation as an “aha, we got you” moment. That’s idiotic. I admit that I’m not a computer nerd so I don’t know how to post pictures. However, I looked and found several pictures of Ronald Reagan, (A hero of mine whom I believe saved the country from USSR and terrible economic times) with groups of people like Charles Rangel, Robert (KKK) Byrd, and other gleeful democrats as he signs a law into order. Use your brain people. Stop the bleeding first and then you can work on a fix. ABO
F The Convention and The Rainbow RINO it rode in on.
