Skip to comments.Frank Marshall Davis: Obama’s ‘Communist mentor’? (3 Pinocchios to Giuliani)
Posted on 03/23/2015 3:15:02 PM PDT by Seizethecarp
Giuliani: Well, his his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis, who was a Communist.
Readers of The Fact Checker wanted to know if Giulianis comments were accurate.
So we reached out to Cliff Kincaid, president of Americas Survival, a group that seeks to expose Communist and Marxist influences.
The Pinocchio Test
We carefully considered the facts underlying this assertion, and the evidence is slim. We may never definitively know one way or another, but it is time to put it to rest.

"So the FBI continued to track him into the 1960s and did not officially remove him from the Security Index until 1963.
"Davis had an interest in photography. In Hawaii, he took pictures of shorelines, apparently not photographing any particular objects, according to an FBI informant. That implies he might have been taking photos for espionage, to send to Soviet leaders to target Hawaii as a strategic territory, said Kincaid and Trevor Loudon, a libertarian activist who also researches this topic.
"No other person can claim the title of Obama mentor than Davis, wrote Paul Kengor in The Communist, his book about Davis and Obama. Frank is a lasting, permanent influence, an integral part of Obamas sojourn, he wrote."
Fact Checker does NOT mention Davis following KGB party line as a key black media figure at all times before, during and after WWII.
Ping to really stupid WaPo Fact Checker article giving Giuliani 3 Pinocchios for his statement that Barry was “mentored by communist Frank Marshall Davis”!!!
WaPo even consulted the writings of Kengor and Loudon!
Unbelievable! More signs of desperation that the peeps might start looking too closely at the evidence!
The WaPo still continues to assume that Barry wrote Dreams!
Davis was a notorious pervert whose sexual proclivities included homo and group sex.
I wonder where Obama got his reputation for being gay?
Davis and Vernon Jarrett belonged to the same COMMUNIST CELL, on the South Side of Chicago and were good friends.
This isn’t “news” to anyone who has been paying attention and yes, the WaPo “fact checkers” are blind/deserve 4 Pinocchios for this drivel/propaganda.
Unseal Barry’s records!
Obama is a degenerate islamonazi communist monster intent on destroying the USA.
Jarrett is his KGB handler and a Iranian operative as well.
Valerie Jarrett is a ISLAMONAZI COMMUNIST from a family of COMMUNISTS and ISLAMONAZIS
The Communist Party USA continues to back their friend Barack Obama.
How deeply has the Communist Party been involved in advancing Obamas political career-through the Jarrett family, or by other means?
The answers to these questions will have major implications for the future of whats left of the free world
It is now well established that Barack Obama was linked to the Hawaiian Communist Party network through his boyhood/teenage mentor Frank Marshall Davis.
It is also well known that after moving to Chicago, Obama linked up with the local communist networks.
Manning Marable, a leader of the Communist Party offshoot Committees of Correspondence for Democracy&Socialism claims that Obama understands what socialism is. A lot of the people working with him are, indeed, socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked with him for years...
This leads to two key questions.
A Were the Hawaii and Chicago networks connected?
B Did Obamas connection to Frank Marshall Davis in any way influence his progress up the Chicago political ladder?
If the answer is yes to both, there are significant implications.
Valerie Jarett is a COMMUNIST
Dee Myles is a Chicago activist and chair of the Education Commission of the Communist Party USA. In 2004, after Vernon Jarrets death from cancer she penned this tribute for the Peoples Weekly World of June 5th.
Readers like me can be extremely selective of the journalists we read habitually... We are selective about the journalists to whom we become insatiably addicted, and once hooked we develop a constructive love affair without the romance...
Such was my experience with Vernon Jarrett, an African American journalist in Chicago who died at the age of 86 on May 23. I became a Vernon Jarrett addict, and I am proud of it!
Vernon Jarretts career as a journalist in Chicago began and ended at the Chicago Defender, the African American daily paper. In between, he was the first Black journalist at the Chicago Tribune, and I first began to read his articles during his tenure at the Chicago Sun-Times
Jarretts claim to fame is that he was a partisan of the cause of African Americans in the broad democratic tradition of Paul Robeson and W.E.B. DuBois...
Robeson and DuBois were both Communist Party members. On April 9th, 1998 at Chicagos South Shore Cultural Center, Jarrett hosted a Paul Robeson Citywide Centennial Celebration event, with his old comrade and Party sympathiser Margaret Burroughs and former Communist Party members Studs Terkel and his old friend Oscar C.Brown.
Dee Myles continues;
Jarrett was fanatical about African Americans registering and voting in mass for socially conscious candidates. He championed Harold Washington like a great warrior, and this March, from his hospital bed, wrote an article appealing to Black Chicago to turn out to vote for Barack Obama in the Illinois primaries. Obama astounded everyone with an incredible landslide victory as the progressive, Black candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Illinois. From his sickbed, Vernon Jarrett issued a clarion call, and the people responded.
The Jarrett/Obama conection did not end with Vernon Jarretts death-it moved to a higher level with his famous daughter-in-law Valerie Jarrett.
A former Deputy Corporation Counsel for Finance and Development under Harold Washington, Jarrett continued to work in the mayors office into the 1990s.
In 1991, while Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daley, Jarrett hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama.
Later Valerie Jarrett ran the finances for Obamas 2004 Senate bid and served as treasurer of Obamas HOPEFUND.
The relationship is more than professional-Jarrett is regarded as one of the Obamas closest friends and advisors.
According to Take Political Action May 24th 2008;
Shes always been the other side of Baracks brain. Thats how an Obama insider described Valerie Jarrett as an Obama campaign aide announced Thursday night the former CTA chief and current Habitat Co. CEO is taking on a larger role to help her close friend win his White House bid.
The development comes as Jarrett, a charter member of Sen. Barack Obamas kitchen cabinet, has been formalizing her portfolio and stepping up the pace within the past few weeks as a top advisor within the campaign.
Though she will be part-time, Jarrett will be one of the most visible and powerful African-Americans in the top rungs of the Obama operation...
Today Valerie Jarrett serves as one of three Senior Advisors to President Obama. She is Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, and Chairs the White House Commission on Women and Girls.
Would there be an Obama/Jarrett relationship today, if there had been no Frank Marshall Davis/Jarrett connection through the Communist Party of post war Chicago? -Trevor Loudon.
“Davis had an interest in photography.”
I lol’d at that one. For sure. Davis had a huge interest in photography. PRONOGRAPHIC photography for a start.
Odds are great that Obama’s own mother was a porn star for FMD.
James W. “Jim” Ford (December 22, 1893 1957) was an activist and politician, the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA in 1932, 1936, and 1940. A party organizer born in Alabama and living in New York City, Ford was the first African American to run on a presidential ticket in the 20th century.
“Davis had an interest in photography. In Hawaii, he took pictures of shorelines...”
Is that FMD?
Barry’s Gramps was found to have a huge 600 page FBI file that was almost entirely redacted when partially released before it was DESTROYED!
No that’s Jim Ford, the first black communist to run for the WH.
He didn’t have the brains to call himself a Democrat, so he lost.
