    When Rudy Giuliani dared to name Frank Marshall Davis (Communist Party card no. 47544) as an influence on a young Obama, liberals ripped their garments and wailed “blasphemy!” Rudy’s unpardonable sin reminded them of all sorts of noxious behavior. And in some cases, it reminded liberals of -- what else? -- racism.

    Paul Kengor, political science professor at Grove City College, talked about his book, 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative, in which he presents his thoughts on what it means to be a “Reagan conservative.” In his book, the author identifies eleven principles that he contends the late president possessed and defined his conservatism, from lower taxes and individualism to American exceptionalism. Paul Kengor spoke at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, Califinornia. 1 hour, 15 minute video at:

    Pete Seeger died last week at age 94. The media are remembering Seeger as a “social-justice” crusading “progressive” who gave voice to the poor and the working man. He's also being portrayed as an unfortunate victim of wild-eyed McCarthyites who madly searched for a red under every bed. Well, the full story is a little different. Pete Seeger was in fact once a communist, a committed one at the height of the Stalin era. Interviewed for a 2008 episode of the PBS series “American Masters,” Seeger openly conceded he had been a communist. He first joined the Young Communist League...

    Paul Ryan readies for the Biden Treatment I'd like to share a story on Senator Joe Biden that happened 31 years ago, and may be relevant to Biden's Thursday evening debate with Paul Ryan. It involved Biden's international humiliation of a good man, and it became a habit for Biden. I'm confident Biden may aim to repeat the performance with Paul Ryan in the vice-presidential debate, looking to "Quayle" the youthful Wisconsin congressman in a way worse than Lloyd Bentsen might have done...

    Arguably, no previous U.S. president has had as many disconcerting friends and associates as Barack Obama. Many Americans know of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and Rashid Khalidi, but few have heard of perhaps the most important figure in Obama’s life: Frank Marshall Davis. Who was Frank Marshall Davis? In The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, historian Dr. Paul Kengor writes, “[He] was a pro-Soviet, pro-Red China, card-carrying member of Communist Party. … He did endless Soviet propaganda work in his newspaper columns, at every juncture agitating and opposing U.S. attempts to slow Stalin...

    The Communist who's the subject of the stunning new biography by Paul Kengor is Frank Marshall Davis. He's the black poet, journalist, and activist whom the young Barack Obama hung out with as a teenager in Hawaii, then wrote a weird, disturbingly affectionate poem about entitled "Pop" while a student at Occidental College. He's the man whom President Obama describes as his mentor in the latter's autobiography, Dreams from My Father. Here's Kengor's summary of the man our president so admires:

    Paul Kengor's book, "The Communist" about Obama's mentor Frank Marshall Davis is out in bookstores today. The book is published by Glenn Beck's emporium. There have been other FR articles about Kengor's book, but none of them have this link to his 3 minute video about the book. It's worth a quick look. Obama's speeches are parrot repetitions of Davis's communist orations. Davis thought that monopolies like GM needed to be controlled by the government. He hated big business and the "tentacled" rich men who ran them. He felt all Americans had the right to a "decent home." He wanted...

    Imagine an American man so devout in his Communist beliefs, that during the Cold War the FBI placed him on its security index – meaning that if an armed conflict were to have erupted between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, Federal authorities would have looked to him as a prime suspect for treason. Now imagine that man mentored the leader of the free world.

    Editor's note: This information is taken from Paul Kengor's new book forthcoming from Mercury Ink, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor. This July 4, 2012, America stands at the cusp—or looking at the abyss—of the "fundamental" and "transformational" change that Barack Obama promised four years ago. Ironically, it was also fundamental and transformational change that Barack Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, promised this exact time 66 years ago.A devoted Communist Party member, Frank Marshall Davis, on July 6, 1946, published a column for the kick-off edition of the Chicago Star. The Star was the communist newspaper for Chicago, known...

    In the 1980s, I was an unrefined adolescent from blue-collar Butler, Pennsylvania. I knew nothing and cared nothing about politics. I had no idea if I was a conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican, or much of anything else. But I knew one thing: Moammar Kaddafi was a bad dude. This was expressed in a rather unsophisticated way by the bumper-sticker affixed to my white Chevy Chevette, which declared simply and succinctly: "Kaddafi Sucks." Yep, Moammar Kaddafi was a bad dude. And now, three decades later, and some 40-plus years after coming to power, he is gone, dispatched to the...

    “The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamental Christian,” said NPR’s Ron Schiller to two undercover reporters. “I wouldn’t even call it Christian; it’s this weird evangelical kind of [movement].” Not knowing he was being videoed, Schiller continued: “The current Republican Party is not really the Republican Party, it’s been hijacked by this group; that is, not just Islamo-phobic but really xenophobic. I mean, basically, they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-American, gun toting—I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.” (Click here for transcript and here...

    Dinesh D’Souza says in his new book that Barack Obama is an anti-colonialist. Stanley Kurtz has a new book, Radical-in-Chief, which says Obama is a socialist. The new book Dupes by Paul Kengor tells the unvarnished truth. And that’s because he makes use of material we started releasing back in February of 2008 about Obama’s communist mentor, Communist Party USA member Frank Marshall Davis. New Zealand blogger Trevor Loudon broke that story and we confirmed it. I hate to say, “We told you so,” but Herb Romerstein and I held a briefing in May 0f 2008 in Washington, D.C. releasing...

    A few days ago, Dr. Paul Kengor—who has written books about the religious beliefs of Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Hillary Clinton—wrote a thoughtful opinion piece for USA Today in which he concluded: In short, and I don't mean this to be disparaging, with Barack Obama we are witnessing the most unconventional faith profile of a president in arguably 200 years. The assessment we're getting from a curious public is not a crass misperception by a bunch of intolerants, but, rather, natural puzzlement.Of course, it shouldn't be difficult to rectify misperceptions. Throughout American history, presidents have been asked about...

    I knew the time would come. America’s public schools and ideologically monolithic universities have spawned a generation woefully uninformed in the most elementary facts about free markets, socialism, and communism. Personally, after teaching this material for years, I’m getting an inordinate number of questions about communism in particular, as that word is bandied about like crazy—the result of America’s decisive lurch leftward since the election of November 2008.There’s so much to say, especially about communism in practice, where the story is unprecedented misery: a death toll of 100-140 million human beings since 1917. That’s twice the combined corpses of WWI...

    From Kengor,p.205 During his first three years in office and particularly since the spring of 1983, Ronald Reagan had pushed a plan to deploy intermediate-range nuclear forces (INFs), also known as Pershing II's , in Western Europe. His goal was to prompt the Soviets to remove their medium-range nuclear missiles from Eastern Europe. He told Yuri Andropov that if the Kremlin removed its missiles, there would be no need for the United States to deploy INFs. Reagan called this the zero-zero option: he wanted both sides to slash INFs to zero levels. If Andropov would not agree to do this,...

    Fellow Grove City College professor and friend Paul Kengor took some time to address several questions I put to him about his new book, The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism. As Dr. Kengor notes, his book is full of vital information for those interested in Reagan as person, President and crusader against the threat of communism. I recently reported on one interesting fact recorded in the book which is the attempt made by Sen Ted Kennedy to involve Yuri Andropov in American politics during the 1980s. There is much, much more in the book and well worth...
