  • 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....
  • Role Ayers Played in Obama Political Career

    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...

    Politically Drunk - PDOP ^ | 10/15/2008 | Jarid Brown
    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".

    American Thinker ^ | October 15, 2008 | Selwyn Duke
    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...

    Cross Action News ^ | 10-14-08 | Michael Reagan
    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!

    The Obama camp is denying he's a member of the socialist New Party. More secrecy and deceit from The One. And the MSM ignores this and tries to suggest the American people don't need to know Barack Obama was a member of an extreme Left party? Who needs democracy anyway? Especially if you're an elitist leftist defending The One.

    Spectator ^ | Friday, 10th October 2008 | Melanie Phillips
    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...

    There has been a big buzz on the blogospere since US mega-blog Powerline picked up on evidence proving that Barack Obama was, in the mid '90s, a member of a short-lived socialist organisation, the Chicago New Party. Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which also endorsed Obama that year and to which the Senator has longstanding and ongoing ties, has also been dragged into the fray. 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...

    Accuracy in Media ^ | Feb. 14, 2008 | Cliff Kinkaid
    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...

Chicago is sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85% victory.

    After allegations surfaced in early summer over the 'New Party's' endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists of America claimed that Obama was never a member of either organization. The DSA and 'New Party' then systematically attempted to cover up any ties between Obama and the Socialist Organizations. However, it now appears that Barack Obama was indeed a certified and acknowledged member of the DSA's New Party.
