  • Something New Here (NRO exposes 0bama's New Party ties)

    National Review ^ | October 20, 2008 | Stanley Kurtz
    During his first campaign for the Illinois state senate in 1995-96, Barack Obama was a member of, and was endorsed by, the far-left New Party. Obama’s New Party ties give the lie to his claim to be a post-partisan, post-ideological pragmatist. Particularly in Chicago, the New Party functioned as the electoral arm of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). So despite repeated attempts to distance himself from ACORN, Obama’s New Party ties raise disturbing questions about his links to those proudly militant leftists. The media’s near-total silence on this critical element of Obama’s past is deeply irresponsible....

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | October 15, 2008 | Lynn Sweet
    WASHINGTON--Barack Obama continues to be attacked by John McCain and other Republicans for his relationship with Bill Ayers, the former terrorist turned respected Chicago educator. Obama served on civic boards with Ayers and Ayers held a coffee for Obama when Obama first ran for a state senate seat in 1995. McCain said he may bring up Ayers at the third and final presidential debate Wednesday night. Obama said McCain--running ads featuring Ayers with Sarah Palin making him an issue on the stump--never said anything to his face. Ayers did not came up in the first two presidential debates. If McCain...

    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...

    The scary reality is that Obama's quasi-socialist economic policies are rooted in the fringe left economic beliefs of his first political party affiliation - The New Party. To understand these economic beliefs, perhaps we should look at the policies of this party; policies that mirror Senator Obama's proposals; policies that referred to President Clinton as a "Barbarian" and were built upon a belief that we should "Forget the Soccer Moms".

    Absent the ability to read minds and hearts, I can't really tell you if Barack Obama is uniquely dishonest.  What is for certain, though, is that his campaign is uniquely deceitful.  These two things are not synonymous. Politicians are famous for suppressing facts and manufacturing fantasies to hide their faults, and, while Obama certainly practices this sleight-of-hand, I can't say he is more inured to it that your average prevaricating pol.  But what is doubtless is that he has more faults to hide. It's ironic that Obama has used the "lipstick on a pig" line, because Avon's whole inventory couldn't, sans...

    To listen to the Obama spin-masters you’d think that the McCain campaign’s questioning of their candidate’s association with unrepentant terrorist bomber Bill Ayers is a smear tactic falsely elevating a casual relationship between the two men into one where they worked together in promoting Ayers’ far-left goals. Their reaction to the continuing revelations that disprove that claim is one of sheer panic – and they have a good reason to be scared witless that any in-depth probe of what went on between the two comrades will reveal Obama’s true colors – all of them dark red!

    Despite the ‘bunch of conservative businessmen and civic leaders’ on the Annenberg Challenge, which ran the school reform project, the Annenberg Challenge was Ayers’s baby. It actually diverted funds that were naively assumed to be going to bona fide education projects and channelled them instead into one radical group after another. That is the key point about the relationship with Ayers – that Obama’s own actions as a member of the Annenberg board were in concert with Ayers’ subversive world-view. Indeed, even more explosive new evidence is emerging about Obama’s links with the New Party, a radical left organization, established...

The Obama camp has countered in two ways. Firstly-claiming that while Obama was endorsed by the New Party he was never a member. That lie is easily disposed of. Here is a photo of Obama...

    Campaign workers for Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama are under fire for displaying a flag featuring communist hero Che Guevara. But Obama has his own controversial socialist connections. He is, in fact, an associate of a Chicago-based Marxist group with access to millions of labor union dollars and connections to expert political consultants, including a convicted swindler. Obama's socialist backing goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat. Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that Obama, as a state...

    Was he a member or was he simply endorsed by the Party, which had a strategy of endorsing Democratic Party candidates who were sufficiently left wing? In any case, I don't think it's right to call the New Party "socialist." I remember this party. One of the founders was UW lawprof Joel Rogers. They presented themselves not as socialists, but as left-leaning and progressive. I realize that for right wingers that counts as "socialist," but let's not be inflammatory.

    Obama is Hiding a Radical Past Did you know that Barack Obama was a member of the leading socialist party? In a small omission, Barack Obama apparently forgot to include in his resume, he entered politics as a socialist. This just keeps getting better and better. Barack Obama was active participant in the 1990s of the Chicago New Party and, importantly, the Chicago DSA, a group of socialists affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America. Barack Obama attended and participated in meetings the Chicago New Party and the Chicago DSA, the local affiliate of the Democratic Socialists of America. Barack...

    It’s natural to be skeptical of excessive claims about Obama’s radical associations...there are so many. But one bears attention — because it helped him get his start in politics. In 1996, he won an Illinois state senate seat on a “fusion” ticket of the Democratic Party and leftist group called the “New Party.” The New Party with 7,000 members at its peak, had been an explicitly anti-capitalist party of ex-Communists, socialists and activists from ACORN, the hard-left group that’s constantly in trouble over voter fraud. The New Party didn’t ask for Obama’s association; he asked for the New Party’s endorsement.Blogger...

    Election '08: The word is that Barack Obama is a mainstream politician who sometimes attracts fringe leftists. The record tells a different story — that he has sought out radicals. What does that say of his agenda?It's natural to be skeptical of excessive claims about Obama's radical associations. After all, there are so many. But one bears attention — because it helped him get his start in politics. In 1996, he won an Illinois state senate seat on a "fusion" ticket of the Democratic Party and leftist group called the "New Party." The New Party, founded in 1992 with 7,000...

    Erik Ericson of RedState.com has a very detailed article today on Barack Obama's connection to a neo-Marxist political party called the "New Party." (I wrote about the New Party here.) Basically, Obama sought out the group as a result of his work with another far left organization ACORN - a "non-partisan" acvitist group whose members have been convicted in several states of vote fraud. And not only did Obama receive their endorsement, he used many of the party's members as campaign workers on his first state senate campaign:

    It seems that Senator Obama's Old party was called the New Party. The party was a Marxist Political coalition. This was not a guilt by association thing. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers. Read more on the Marxist endorsement that Barack Obama sought out: Co-founded in 1992 by Daniel Cantor (a former staffer for Jesse Jackson's 1988 presidential campaign) and Joel Rogers (a sociology and law professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison), the New Party was a Marxist political coalition whose...

    America's Independent Party has as its goal the return of our nation to a set of foundational principles. We call them "the American Principles." The word "principle" comes from a Latin root which means "first things." The American Principles are the "first things" that our country should consider – in domestic policy, foreign policy, the internal functioning of government, and in using the "bully pulpit" of public office and the political arena to promote certain societal virtues and behaviors. America's Independent Party recognizes that these "first things" are clearly defined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the...

    Philosophy America The US Constitution is the finest and most enlightened governing document in the history of nations. The blessings of the Almighty were present as the men from the various former colonies crafted a system of republican rule that struck the fundamental balance between God-given individual freedoms, the autonomy of the States, and the necessity of a limited, but strong triumvirate federal government. The FALCON party recognizes not only the brilliance of our Constitution, but also the solemn duty to abide by its provisions. The Founders provided a mechanism to change the stipulations held within the Constitution, and the...

    January 21, 2008 A Conservative Party Organized on a Federalist Basis? For purposes of discussion, if we were to try to establish state level versions of a national conservative party, how would we go about it? Think both inside and outside the box. I would suggest also giving a fair amount of consideration to the new communication and organizational tools now available to us that were not available even as recently as the Perot uprising.

    I was listening to Rush and thinking about our Washington politicians. Is it time for a third party, the "Wall" party? I don't have the experience, contacts, or skills to know where to start on this, but here is what I would run on. Nothing about abortion It's too divisive an issue and can be dealt with in the courts. Term Limits No one serves more than two terms, retroactive. Build the wall Like the caller on Rush said the other day, hire the Mexicans to build the wall. They have the biggest concrete block company in the world. This...
