All in the (Political) Family - Obama's Marxist Mentor and Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod
The American Spectator ^ | August 3, 2012 | Paul Kengor

Posted on 08/03/2012 4:13:31 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

A new book by Richard Miniter contends that it was Valerie Jarrett, Obama's top adviser, who repeatedly urged President Obama not to take out Osama bin Laden, prompting Obama to cancel the mission three times.

Kudos to Miniter for this revelation. A year ago, I had written a feature article for American Spectator on Valerie Jarrett. One piece of information I had, but couldn't confirm, was precisely this. Good work by Richard Miniter.

........As readers of this site are aware, I've just published a book on Barack Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. No president in the long history of this republic has had a mentor like Obama's. Frank Marshall Davis was a literal -- and I mean literal -- card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. I publish Davis's Communist Party number (47544) on the cover of the book, and fill an appendix with declassified FBI documents and Soviet archival material. Those documents reveal a Davis so suspicious that he was placed on the federal government's Security Index, which meant he could be immediately arrested if war broke out between the United States and USSR. With that sort of pro-Soviet influence throughout his adolescence (1970-79), Barack Obama would have trouble getting a security clearance for an entry-level government job, let alone sit in the Oval Office.

Nonetheless, Obama sits in that Oval Office today thanks to four factors: the American voter, a scandalously biased media, a skillful election strategy charted by David Axelrod, and the careful nurturing of Valerie Jarrett.

And most remarkable, Axelrod's and Jarrett's backgrounds and mentors connect to Obama's background and mentor in a most intriguing way. It's a stunning story, hard to believe. Follow closely:

Coming as this does on the heels of the inquiries made by Representative Michele Bachmann concerning Hillary Clinton's assistant chief of staff and her connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, it is appropriate to ask whether that connection will now be raised in this context.

Because people like John McCain have thrown Michele Bachmann and her fellow conservative representatives under the bus it is difficult for prominent conservatives to come to her defense which means that it difficult for those interested in the truth to raise issues and survive politically. It takes someone with the backbone-or the absence of any hope of future political office-like Newt Gingrich to stick his head above the parapet and risk being called McCarthyite.

It will be interesting to see if Michelle Bachmann herself has the courage to make the connection, if any, between Valerie Jarrett with her communist connections tempered by her residence in her youth in Iran, and Huma Mahmood Abedin the assistant Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Clinton's "body woman." If Bachmann does speak out, will she be again thrown under the bus? Will she be left to twist in the wind?

Few could blame Mrs. Bachmann if she keeps her head below the parapet because it is well known that she is # one on the list of Republicans to be knocked out of the House of Representatives and the charges of McCarthyism will fly thick and fast in Minnesota and there'll be no lack of money poured into the race by the national Democrat party.

Just as it was politically incorrect in 2008 to inquire into Obama's pedigree so it is probably unavailing is 2012 to inquire into the pedigree of his Associates. Who will come to the aid of the party?

These are real and substantial questions of national security.

Fascinating and frightening. This article shows how deep the roots of the Communist tree are. The past four years have enabled the branches of that tree to flourish far and wide. This administration MUST be ejected from office!

It's not the first time John McCain has thrown "someone" under the bus. Some people have even suggested that he threw his own election under the bus. He is either enormously incompetent or owned and operated by a political mafia of some kind.

I'm reading “The Communist” by Paul Kengor now. I cant remember ever reading a book that was as upsetting as what I've read in this book.

I highly recommend people read it. Especially those who say there is no difference between Romney and Obama.

Romney may be too liberal but he is not a Communist.

We throw the terms socialist and communist around too easily and doing so diminishes their true meaning.

Please think about history for a moment. Think about Stallinist Russia and all of the millions of people wiped out by him. This was Frank Marshall Davis’ hero and Frank Marshall Davis was Obama’s ideological father, if not his biological father.

Anger? Yes.
Shame? Absolutely!

I am ashamed that the electorate and MSM in this country have permitted themselves to be duped like this. The point being… if you claim you were NOT duped, they you are in accord with the ‘Davis political’ position and subsequently the politics of “O”.
VERY ashamed!

There is not a single level headed and honest American in this country who for one instant mistook “O” for anything but what he is.

Yet the ‘electors’ and the MSM think “O” is some kind of sophisticated thinker and enlightened leader...SO sophisticated and SO enlightened that the rest of us stupid yokels just don’t GET IT!

I’ve got news for the electorate and the MSM! Get yourself a map and a history book and get busy. Check out all the OTHER demagogues who tricked and betrayed jerks like yourselves with just this same smarmy drivel.

Who’s the stupid yokel here?

Too bad the GOP doesn’t have the balls to really go after Obama. It would be a slam-dunk. But they want to play nice. Maybe some PACs will. I know Romney won’t.

Does Kengor mention Thomas Ayers in his book? After a bit of research, I'm rather convinced that Frank hooked Barry up in Chicago with his commie friends, then Bill's father, Thomas, a very rich guy, got an eyeful of the boy wonder...Since Tom Ayers was looking for a black puppet to groom for Mayor of Chi...Barry fit the bill. I am guessing Ayer’s paid for and greased the wheels for Barry's rather remarkable jump from crappy student at crappy Oxy to 3rd year Columbia student...later Harvard LR Preezee.

I'm so glad Kengo wrote this book. I've felt for years that Frank is the key to unlocking the fraud in the WH.

the terms communist and socialist are NOT thrown around too easily, those words are rarely mentioned and if so, reluctantly. Try calling the “progressive” caucus the “communist caucus” and hear them scream. Try using the word communist and they come back with “mccarthy”. The words communist and socialist need to be used often to wake people up. Even the dunce bill o’really refused to believe there was anything left to communists in USA.

I'm about half way through the book and he hasn't mentioned Ayers yet. I do expect him to because, like you, I think they families are all tied together.

I'm normally a fast reader but this one is taking some time. I read a chapter and then am overwhelmed by revulsion with where our country is headed.

The book shows that Obama was the plan all along. They may or may not have chosen him specifically but he is the culmination of the work they have been doing for decades.

Do you read any of the posts on FR? People, here, throw the terms around daily. My words are meant for people here.

You also make my point. Because of the ease of use of the terms you missed the fact that Obama and his friends ARE Marxists. Real ones who have inherited their beliefs from their families and mentors and have a plan to take over our country.

"the American voter" is the key factor here. We will always have rotten politicians like Jarret, Axelrod, Obama, and a corrupt media. It is the American voter that puts them all in positions where they are able to bring down our country.

Yeah, just think, just as Dingy Harry has accused Romney of not filing taxes in 10 years and has suggested the onus to "prove himself inocent" is on Mitt, this could be used very effectively if only there was a prominent R who had the stones to do so.

Hey Barry, "prove--based upon your past afilliations and those of your closest advisers--that you are not a 'commie'."

Newt to the rescue?

He or someone else could usurp the Left's playbook and come out with what they are always advancing: "it's not the nature of the evidence that is relevant. It's the seriousness of the charge."

Here we have the making of one of the biggest scandals in American History and could spell defeat for Obama if only we could get the MSM to report on it, which we know ain't never going to happen.

Too many people are cowed at the prospect of being called a McCarthy-ite for pointing out that Communism is at the root of many of our problems. Not you. And not me. I think that, more often than not, you scratch a liberal and you get redder than red blood.

What’s so frustrating (and lamentable) about the fact that so few have learned that history (Soviet archives, Venona transcripts etc.) has for the most part vindicated McCarthy. It’s maddening to me, how leftists and their media can still use him as a cudgel against anyone who opposes them.

I agree.

I'm sorry, I obviously didn't say what I intended in saying the terms communism and socialism are bandied about too frequently.

My point is that I read posts here every day calling Romney a socialist and that he is no different than Obama. Saying the two are the same weakens the argument against Obama.

They are not the same. One may be too liberal but the other is a true Communist.

Even though it is about Frank Marshall Davis you will see the true Obama. For instance, FMD hated Churchill and General Motors. He thought General Motors should be taken over by the government because of their obscene profits. Sound familiar?

I'm not that sure that Romney was that liberal or just a pol blowing in MA's wind. IIRC, Mark Kirk moved to the right after he was elected to the Senate from Illinois. He was one of the biggest RINOs in the House from a northern Chicago suburb. Gillibrand from upstate NY went from moderate rat sleeping with rifles under her bed to one of the most hard left members of the Senate.

I don’t think so. I think that McCain and other “centrists” attacking Bachmann actually help get the truth out. Obama’s policies, along with a worsening economy on his watch will do the rest.

And this (from the posted article):

"Frank Marshall Davis, like Obama, found himself, his career, and his political calling in Chicago. It was there in the 1940s that he first began working for communist front-groups, joined the Communist Party, and wrote for and became the founding editor-in-chief of the Chicago Star, the city's Communist Party newspaper -- where Davis kicked off the newspaper with a column (July 6, 1946) pledging to advance "fundamental change.""

Sheeperal 0bama supporters will tell you that it’s “absurd” to say that 0bama is a Marxist, but, let’s have a look at the parallel.

Mitt Romney is a Mormon. Even if he had not said so, we could reasonably determine that he is a Mormon because his Grandparents were Mormon, his parents were Mormon, his mentors were Mormon, and he attended a Mormon church all his life.

Obama’s grandparents, parents, mentors, preferred professors, and his pastor were all Marxists, yet somehow it’s “absurd” to think 0bama is a Marxist?

Completely surrounded by Marxists his entire life,
immersed in Marxist thought, speech, and ideas his entire life...

but it’s “absurd” to call him a Marxist.

Sheeperals, pull the other one and it plays Jingle Bells.

I know what it is, though. Sheeperals’ entire reason for being “liberal” is to feel good about themselves as “good people”, and Marxists aren’t “good people”, so there is no way the people the sheeperals support could be Marxists.

Follow?

Here we have the making of one of the biggest scandals in American History and could spell defeat for Obama if only we could get the MSM to report on it, which we know ain't never going to happen.

Or maybe the American voter, having been fed a slow, steady and gradually increasing diet of socialism (and with approximately 50% now having been successfully manipulated into government dependency) has become incapable of being scandalized by the demonstrable truth that communist sympathizers have now succeeded in infiltrating the highest levels of government.

Socialism appeals to human weakness - the desire for material gain without responsibility, and the delusional belief that security can be found in this life through the care of a government nanny. Market socialism as a "forward" thinking political movement ("progressivism"), incorporate its ideas into the democrat party (which has already successfully branded itself as representing "the people") and voters willingly trade socialist programs for freedom. Throw God out of the public square and successful manipulation of human weakness is guaranteed.

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.” ~ John Adams

This decades-long socialist seduction has resulted in the election of a president armed with a plan to "fundamentally transform" the United States of America by deliberately exploiting "human passions unbridled by morality." We'll find out in November whether or not we have reached the tipping point.

And Obama is a Muslim-hiding-in-plain sight and that is all i need to know. I guess a fellow traveler of communism is better to you and other Freepers than a patriotic American who loves America. But it doesn’t bother you or other self-righteous Freepers that our dear Prez was a long time attendee of the Rev. Wright’s G-D America cult, does it?

God Save America from those so blind they cannot see what 4 more years of BO will do to the America our children must grow up under.
