“As the crisis develops, it will be important to use the mass media to inform the broader llberal community about the inefficiencies and injustices of welfare…..And throughout the crisis, the mass media should be used to advance arguments for a new federal income distribution program.”…Richard Cloward and Frances Piven
“But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.
And that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.”…Barack Obama
“If in the opinion of the People, the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation, for through this in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”...George Washington
In the spirit of vetting presidential candidates and keeping them honest about Obama’s past, I have some more factual information for the Truth Team about Obama’s communist involvement and influence. There is so much of it that I will first present a snapshot, enough to pique your interest.
Here are some exerpts from a 4 part series on Obama’s communist ties from Citizen Wells in May 2009.
From Citizen Wells May 11, 2009.
“Obama lied about his connections to Acorn:
Obama helped Acorn in organizing of “Project VOTE” in 1992.
Obama was a community organizer.
Obama represented Acorn as attorney, ACORN vs. Edgar.
Obama was involved in Acorn leadership training sessions.
Obama, Annenberg Challenge, William Ayers, Acorn.
Acorn, New party endorsement of Obama.
February 25th to May 17th 2008, Obama camp paid $832,598 to Acorn.
Acorn Voter fraud.
Obama may have stolen the nomination through Acorn voter fraud.”
“Obama was heavily influenced by left wing radical Saul Alinsky
“Thirteen years after Alinsky died, some of his former students hired Barack Obama to a $13,000 a year job as a community organizer in South Chicago. In a few years he became very proficient in the Alinsky Method of community organizing and became an instructor and teacher of the Alinsky Method to other community organizers.””
“Obama campaigned with his cousin in Kenya, Raila Odinga
They both utilized Alinsky’s tactics
Raila Odinga’s strategy
“The age issue
Our core supporters are essentially young people who are angry about the domination of Kibaki politics by frail septuagenarians.
Billboards and leaflets ridiculing the old people in the Kibaki team; contrast this with billboards of Hon Raila with young people- the promise of a buoyant future.”
Compare that to what Obama has said
“I want you argue with them and get in their face,”
“like a spy behind enemy lines,”
“organize black folks””
“Investor’s Business Daily reveals radical agenda of Barack and Michelle in early nineties
“Barack Obama was a founding member of the board of Public Allies in 1992, resigning before his wife became executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies in 1993. Obama plans to use the nonprofit group, which he features on his campaign Web site, as the model for a national service corps. He calls his Orwellian program, “Universal Voluntary Public Service.”
Big Brother had nothing on the Obamas. They plan to herd American youth into government-funded reeducation camps where they’ll be brainwashed into thinking America is a racist, oppressive place in need of “social change.””
“But its real mission is to radicalize American youth and use them to bring about “social change” through threats, pressure, tension and confrontation — the tactics used by the father of community organizing, Saul “The Red” Alinsky.”
“”It’s a lot of talk about race, a lot of talk about sexism, a lot of talk about homophobia, talk about -isms and phobias.”
One of those -isms is “heterosexism,” which a Public Allies training seminar in Chicago describes as a negative byproduct of “capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and male-dominated privilege.””
“The gall of it: The Obamas want to create a boot camp for radicals who hate the military — and stick American taxpayers with the bill.””
“Obama was endorsed by and considered to be a member of the New Party
“The Illinois New Party is working intensively on Willie Delgado’s state representative campaign. Delgado is part of an emerging Latino network in Chicago. We’re also backing Danny Davis in a Congressional race, Barack Obama for state representative””
From Citizen Wells May 12, 2009.
“Obama’s parents first met in Russian class
“In a Russian class at the University of Hawaii, she met the college’s first African student, Barack Obama. They married and had a son in August 1961, in an era when interracial marriage was rare in the United States.”
From the NY Times
This may mean nothing, but it sure is interesting. No single puzzle piece is significant until the puzzle picture begins to emerge.
Frank Marshall Davis mentored Obama in 1970’s”
“Obama has close ties to his leftist, Marxist cousin, Raila Odinga
“Raila Odinga’s politics, like the politics of his father, Odinga Odinga, are on the far left. Raila Odinga was educated at the Technical University in Magdeburg in east Germany, where he graduated in 1970?
“with a degree in mechanical engineering. There he heard Fidel Castro lecture and he named his first born son Fidel”
“By supporting Odinga, Senator Obama is also seen in Kenya as siding with the extreme left wing of Kenyan politics, going back to the overt communism of Odinga Odinga. Odinga’s current party, the Orange Democratic Movement, or ODM, is a leftist-socialist political party that stops short of being openly communist.””
““Russia’s Dmitry Medvedev hailed Barack Obama as “my new comrade“”
“The Russian president contrasted Obama as “totally different” to his predecessor George W. Bush, whom he blamed for the “mistake” of U.S. missile shield plans fiercely opposed by Moscow.”
“In their London talks, Obama and Medvedev launched a milestone quest to slash their nuclear arsenals, hoping to reverse the worst slump in the former foes’ ties since the end of the Cold War.”
“”Yesterday I spoke about this with my new comrade President Barack Obama,” Medvedev said.””
“”Activists from Illinois were immersed in the campaign to elect Barak Obama to the U.S. Senate. Obama won a landslide victory in the March 16 Democratic primary. If Obama wins in November, he would be only the third African American senator since Reconstruction. ‘This was a historic victory. It was a victory for political independence and grassroots, coalition, and issue oriented politics over the machine and money,’ said John Bachtell, Illinois CP district organizer.’
And as the Columbia News Service reported, the Young Communist League has mobilised to campaign for Obama: doubtless the Democratic Party is less than anxious to divulge to the nation this particular affiliation of these young activists who are helping it get out the Democratic vote.””
Next, compare the exerpts below from Citizen Wells, May 13, 2009, to what Obama and his associates have been scheming to do or have already accomplished.
“Communist Goals (1963)
Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals
EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Thursday, January 10, 1963
“11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)”
“13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.”
“15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.”
“16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.”
“17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.”
“19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.”
“20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.”
“21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.”
“27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.””
“28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.””
“29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.”
“30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.””
“32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.”
“36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.”
“41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.”
“42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.”
