He always has been, and remains, a total fraud. He is a radical that does not look or sound like a radical — that is his grand deception, other than his perpetual lying.
He has already openly exposed his radical socialism, none of that is a mystery along with his extreme anti-Americanism (anti-capitalism).
How stupid the public is.....
Yes, and here is their praise for his speech there
From their newsletter:
When Obama participated in a 1996 UofC YDS Townhall Meeting on Economic Insecurity, much of what he had to say was well within the mainstream of European social democracy.
These are not the red diaper doper babies I knew...
This could be a great October surprise - IF the MSM would start showing it. (Fat chance, I know!)
Sent to Drudge
Also, don’t forget the contract Obama signed with the marxist New Party in 1996. :) Its all tied in with ACORN and the Chicago DSA.
I hope this is true, but the link just goes to a yahoo groups posting. Anyone else see a source or valid documentation?
I would be really great if there’s a video on this.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
How can a guy with so many Marxist and socialist (almost the same thing) buddies not be a Marxist/socialist himself?
I’m afraid the current market and economic situation is drowning out all of the breaking information.
We need a copy of the speech. When a journalist says something is mainstream... Well, do I even have to finish the sentence?
Sadly, the dems don't care - he is, after all, the Messiah
True, but remember that this ties directly to what Obama wants to DO with our market :(
(shaking fist in air) Curse you Red Obama!
Correction: Google groups. Same diff.
keep up the great work of digging out these nuggets.
it is truly amazing that our mainstream media has become so leftist that it chose to overlook Obama’s credentials before promoting his candidacy.
I went back and looked at the source. You can’t forward a story without more evidence then that yahoo post. It may be a trap.
The DSA, the progressive caucus, and the Black congressional Caucus are one in the same. There are 72 socialist members in the House of Congress. Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont started the progressive caucus in the 1990’s.
AIM had confirmed that Obamas white grandfather, Stanley Dunham, picked Davis because Obamas black father had abandoned the family and Dunham thought Obama needed a black father-figure. AIM also confirmed that Davis was Obamas mentor during the critical years 1975-1979.
Harnden claimed in a preceding article that Obama was introduced to Davis in 1970 when he was only nine years old. This would mean that Davis was an influence over Obama for about nine full years, until Obama was 18 and went off to college.
Harnden quotes Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a friend of Daviss, as saying that Stanley Dunham brought Obama to meet Davis in the autumn of 1970. She was chatting with him [Davis] that late autumn afternoon as Dunham and Barry [Obama] approached, Harnden reports.
Harnden also reports that Davis and Dunham smoked marijuana together. Dawna Weatherly-Williams said that Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together, the paper said. Obama, of course, also admits that he used marijuana and cocaine in his youth.
Citing passages from Obamas own book, Dreams From My Father, which was published in 1995, Harnden demonstrates how Obama went to Frank for advice about racial issues, college, and other matters at critical periods in his life. Clearly, the relationship between them, as concluded by many observers, was strong.
From the Democratic Socialist newsletter:
“About 50 activists attended the Chicago New Party membership meeting in July. The purpose of the meeting was to update members on local activities and to hear appeals for NP support from four potential political candidates. The NP is being very active in organization building and politics. There are 300 members in Chicago. In order to build an organizational and financial base the NP is sponsoring house parties. Locally it has been successful both fiscally and in building a grassroots base. Nationwide it has resulted in 1000 people committed to monthly contributions. The NP’s political strategy is to support progressive candidates in elections only if they have a concrete chance to “win”. This has resulted in a winning ratio of 77 of 110 elections. Candidates must be approved via a NP political committee. Once approved, candidates must sign a contract with the NP. The contract mandates that they must have a visible and active relationship with the NP.
The political entourage included Alderman Michael Chandler, William Delgado, chief of staff for State Rep Miguel del Valle, and spokespersons for State Sen. Alice Palmer, Sonya Sanchez, chief of staff for State Sen. Jesse Garcia, who is running for State Rep in Garcia’s District; and Barack Obama, chief of staff for State Sen. Alice Palmer. Obama is running for Palmer’s vacant seat.”

“A Town Meeting on Economic Insecurity:
Employment and Survival in Urban America
By Bob Roman
Over three hundred people attended the first of two Town Meetings on Economic Insecurity on February 25 in Ida Noyes Hall at the University of Chicago. Entitled “Employment and Survival in Urban America”, the meeting was sponsored by the UofC DSA Youth Section, Chicago DSA and University Democrats. The panelists were Toni Preckwinkle, Alderman of Chicago’s 4th Ward; Barack Obama, candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District; Professor William Julius Wilson, Center for the Study of Urban Inequality at the University of Chicago; Professor Michael Dawson, University of Chicago; and Professor Joseph Schwartz, Temple University and a member of DSA’s National Political Committee.”
Here it is!
Obama mentor identified as communist
Frank Marshall Davis discussed American imperialism, colonialism, exploitation

Boyz in da 'hood.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to add your name and town, and when emailing be sure to send BCC as a group or just individually so it will look like it went only to them. If they see that its also being sent to others theyll write it off as a mass email, and wont read it.
Light your torches, grab your pitchforks, and tell the MSM what America is REALLY thinking about. MAKE it the news. Your email account is your weapon, and this is war. So lock and load, and use your electronic Liberty Teeth!
Well okay! Now we may be on to something.
Is that a credible internet link source? It seems anyone can put something up on a Google weblink.
Also discussed in several other threads for further research:
Barak Obama...In 1992, he was Director of Illinois Project Vote, a voter registration campaign that made Carol Moseley Braun's election to the U.S. Senate much easier than it would have been.
A few days ago, I was telling some Left Coast Liberals about Obama’s Marxist ties and actions.
They totally shocked me when, to a person, they told me it didn’t bother them in the least that he is a Marxist.
I like these guys a lot, and other than this, they seem very level headed and normal.
The problem is, the word “socialist” means nothing to most Americans anymore. It’s almost a euphemism for “European”.
These people know nothing of Marx, Lenin, Stalin or Mao... and they know even less of Gramsci and Alinsky. And moreover, they don’t care to know. They’d rather watch game shows than learn the lessons of history.
The world’s about to get a crash course in what socialism becomes when America isn’t there to restrain it. It won’t be pretty.
I just found this site:
They do a very good job pointing out all of Obama’s socialist ties.
So, what have we learned here today? Well, liberals ARE Marxists. If they weren’t, why would they pall around with them and turn their head?
WAKE UP AMERICA!
One thread has a map of all Obama’s “friends” in the neighborhood. And how many blocks they live from Obama. These new radicals should be added.
This here proves that Obama was a member of the New Party. As a new party endorsed candidate he would have had to sign a contract pledgeing support to their marxist ideas.
From the New Party website itself:
“Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).”
This could be HUGH and SERIES!
VR - already sent to my 630 WMAL hosts roster.
Here’s more detail what the New Party member/candidates had to do to get endorsement:
“Both Palmer and Delgado attended the forum and were thoroughly questioned by 70 or so New Party members. At the close, both publicly signed a contract with the New Party that was more formal and detailed than the agreement with Chandler. Two weeks later, the New Party formally endorsed them and is now mobilizing support.”
Obama would have had to do the same thing. Also, he was Palmer’s hand picked successor.
African Americans have fought hard for these positions. His seniority is extremely important and we should not make light of it, said former state Sen. Alice Palmer, a veteran leader of the states black independent political movement who had touted Obama as her successor when she gave up her seat in an unsuccessful bid for Congress.
We've become a nation of soul-less zombies. I guess that's what happens when people turn their backs on God. They become incapable or unwilling to determine good from evil. Evil's going to win every time when that's the case.
OK.... I just e mailed a bunch of those News sites with a link to this story.
