Dreams From Frank Marshall Davis
American Spectator ^ | OCTOBER 2012 | PAUL KENGOR

Posted on 10/23/2012 10:21:40 PM PDT by neverdem

Meet the hard-core Communist who mentored the future 44th President of the United States.

LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE: Frank Marshall Davis was a literal, card-carrying member of Communist Party USA (CPUSA). His card number was 47544. He was pro-Soviet, pro–Red China. He edited and wrote for Party-line publications such as the Chicago Star and the Honolulu Record; contributors to the former actually served as secret agents to Stalin’s Soviet Union. Davis did outrageous Soviet propaganda work in his columns, at every juncture agitating and opposing U.S. attempts to slow Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung. He favored Yalta and Red Army takeovers of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Central and Eastern Europe. He urged America to dump the “fascist” Chiang Kaishek in support of Mao’s Red forces.He wanted Communist takeovers in Korea and Vietnam. He was adamantly, angrily anti-NATO, anti–Marshall Plan, anti–Truman Doctrine. He argued that the U.S. under President Harry Truman—whom he portrayed as a fascist, racist, and imperialist—and under secretaries of state George Marshall and Dean Acheson, was handing West Germany back to the Nazis, while Stalin was pursuing “democracy” in East Germany and throughout the Communist Bloc. He portrayed America’s leaders as “aching for an excuse to launch a nuclear nightmare of mass murder and extermination” against the Soviets and the Chinese— as eager to end all civilization.

In short, Frank Marshall Davis’ writings were outrageous. A Jeremiah Wright sermon or Bill Ayers lecture is tame by comparison.

The federal government certainly took notice. In December 1956, the Democrats who ran the Senate Judiciary Committee summoned Davis to Washington to testify on his activities. He pleaded the Fifth Amendment. No matter, the next year, the Democratic Senate, in a report revealingly titled, “Scope of Soviet Activity in the United States,” publicly listed Davis as “an identified member of...”

Kengor raises a very important question that is of the utmost concern to internal security specialists. Obama definitely was raised in a marxist/socialist environment, not only fromsome in his family and Frank Marshall Davis, but in his schools at all levels, in his political associated while at college, in his political associations in Chicago/Illinois affairs (Don Rose; id CPUSAer David S. Canter; Bill Ayers, WUO; Alice Palmer and her husband; Mayor Harold Washington; Saul Alinsky, Quentin Young (ex-CPUSA/now DSA, same for Milton Cohen, Timuel Black and Danny Davis (very close to the CPUSA).

Axelrod is a leftist but little to nothing is known about his mother’s political affairs except that she supposedly worked for “PM” magazine, a publication that the Communists and liberals constantly fought for control of.

His father is an unknown entity. However, his mentors were/are reds: id. CPUSA David Canter and Don Rose, admitted far-leftists.

Valerie Jarrett came out of leftist political circles/marriage in Chicago. Her role as a pro-Islamist advisor is also unknown.

However, in Congress today, and in the past, were scores of CPUSA members from the 1930’s till today , as well as scores of sympathizers. The Old Left in Congress today is John Conyers Jr (so close to the CPUSA that their relationship is like a skin-graft; also close ties to the KGB front “The World Peace Council”); Maxine Waters; Bob Filner (whose parents were party members in Pennsylvania where he father was a Party organizer; De Rosa in Connecticut - ties to the CPUSA in New Haven; Barbara Lee, once comrade Dellum’s key congressional aide; and maybe former Representative, now Gov. Abercrombie (Hawaii).

The list is long and definitely included Soviet agents of influence, if not actual KGB operatives (Bella Abzug, D-NY, was the prime suspect - her ties to the KGB went back to 1947). Rep. Dickstein (1930’s) was a paid Soviet agent (but more greedy than ideological (See: Alan Weinstein/Vassiliev, “The Haunted Wood” for complete documentation). Suspected Soviet agent of influence, the late Sen. Alan Cranston (D-CAL), and possibly a frontman in the murder of anti-communist labor leader Carlo Tresca (See “The KGB Against the Main Enemy”, Romerstein and Levchenko).

This is just the tip of the iceberg of reds in Congress, red diaper babies, and other assorted communist traitors.

I submit that Obama is the natural son of FMD. FMD was a pedophile, and groomed and impregnated Stanley Dunham. Barack Obama Sr. was just the fall guy to keep FMD from going back to jail for violation of his probation.

Did you know Davis wrote an adult memoir where he admitted gay activity? Disgusting.

Is there a reason that Romney just couldn’t figure out a way to work that name into the debates, prolly the same reason Rev Wright and Ayers never were mentioned ... Political Correctness and how the MSM would see it.

MSM cannot implode soon enough

There’s SOMETHING either ON or MISSING from Obama’s birth certificate.

That’s why he spends millions of dollars keeping out of a federal civilian or U.S. military court when $10 would end it all.

And why they post forgeries “online”.

He’s skeered. There must be reason(s).

Something is very, very wrong.

He did all this while living in Cuba right? He walked the walk right? Cause in Cuba they love the blacks. They tell them “We pulled you out of the trees and cut off your tails.”

Ha ha! They are a riot. So Ricky Ricardo meets o’s father Ricky Retardo.

Has any member of Big Lib Media ever questioned Obama about his relationship with Davis? I can’t recall any of them being too interested in Obama’s early influences. Maybe it’s because a lot of them have Frank Davises in their pasts. And probably many look at Obama’s commie influences and say “so what? What’s wrong with having a communist for a mentor?”

There is no original birth record.

Only a application for late filing of home birth, without the proper documentation. It was never acted on by HI and that is why they cannot produce a “real” COLB. It does not exist.
