Surprise! Obama a member of fringe socialist party?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Why are we still trying to say that Barack Obama is a socialist. The man and his legion of defenders have come out and said “No way! Never! No chance!”. Case closed, right? Well, unfortunately for Barack Obama, new evidence now suggests that he was actually a member of the fringe New Party in Chicago in the 90s that subscribed to several tenets of Socialism and Communism.

“Would it be story that you could prove that the President of the United States was not only a member of this fringe party, but also that he had lied to the American people and smeared others who were just pointing out the truth. Wouldn’t be an amazing story? Oh my gosh, look it. It’s the story in my hands,” Glenn said.

Stanley Kurtz of the New Republic writes today:

On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.

In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party.” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.

Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.

“The New Party is essentially a Socialist party that tried to get some traction in the 90s. It was calling for a peaceful revolution in America. They want to basically establish sort of a European socialism sort of model in America headed by a guy you’ve talked about many, many times Joel Rogers,” Stu explained.

And what did the minutes from the meeting say?

Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.

While many probably aren’t surprised that he joined a socialist party, it’s amazing to see him caught in such a lie when he had categorically denied many of the claims that he was a member as “smears”.

    Don’t worry democrats, we know the socialist obama kool-ade you drink makes you impervious to facts and no amount of proof can penetrate your ignorance and stupidity.  Pathetic democrats.

      Land – I have to wonder lately how much of the leftist media going along with Obama is out of blind loyalty, ideology, or sheer terror and intimidation from Obama. I know that the line between fanatical devotion and going along for simple pragmatic survival is very fine; yet I might have a bit of respect for them if they just came out and admitted the truth.

      Obama a member of the socialist group; no shock and let the truth come forth.

        All of those Main Stream media employees have been duped into thinking there will be good paying jobs for them in the new government propaganda broadcasting system (GPBS) that will replace ALL of the existing broadcasters if Obama gets re-elected.  “Sadly”(TIC), most will be thrown under the bus with the rest of us!   

  • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    So now we have probable cause that Obama already belonged to a Socialist Party? For those of us who have studied his past, this is not much of a suprise. And the national media will not even bother to investigate the matter due to their absolute support for Obama.

    IF, this is proven to be true, and I do mean iron clad proven, then it is one more link in the truth of Obamas ultra spun to peices background.

    Let the truth come out, and may Obama be defeated this Nov, and may God protect the nation from Obamas wrath when he sees defeat as inevitable, and his insanity snaps his mind completely.

    • landofaahs

      Obama supporters must feel like idiots for voting for him.  This just a couple of days after he threw the unions under the bus in Wisconsin.  Don’t worry Snow, he will lie to them again and like people with Stockholm Syndrome they will side with him and lick his boots like good little toadies and vote for him again.

      • Tony

         obama’s voters were idiots long before they voted for this fraud…

        • landofaahs

          LOL. Yes, but I consider the 2008 vote as a one question test to prove yea or nay if the liberals were stupid or not. The vote just proves they were stupid.

        land, and B.O. still has his supporters.  He has been flying from place to place,

        state to state and getting fund raisers.  Those people are still donating to him.


        • landofaahs

          If you are an “o” supporter now, you must have done some heavy duty experimenting with man-made chemicals at some point in life. I’ve met people like that and there is a disconnect in the mind that seems to erase common sense or at least separate it from reality.
          One reason Hollywood is so liberal is that they live in a world of make-believe. If it makes a good sounding script it must be workable no matter how unrealistic it is in the real world. That is why I consider liberalism a mental disorder. Like the old saying goes; “Anyone who goes to see a psychiatrist should have their head examined”.

        Obama voters are not stupid , they just have morals of thieves (remember the women who cried “If I take care of him[vote for Obama] he, will take care of me [ food stamps, free handouts]).

      thank GOD I am not surprised b/c Obama as we w/our eyes opened know what he is a socialist progressive globalist he must be defeated.

  • landofaahs

    Obama’s a communist?  What’s “New” about that?  O, wait, the people who voted for obama, they were the ones duped.  Do you people who voted for obama feel betrayed, lied to, and used by obama?  You should, cause you were. LOL  

    • Anonymous

      Some were duped, while others are so ignorant of  the Constitution they can’t see the conflict between socialism, communism and the POTUS”S oath of office. Obama is a traitor to the USA.

    • w. Parker

      It’s not a question of being “duped”.  For anyone who voted for oscumo, it is a question of complete ignorance, stupidity, disloyalty to the party, and being totally unaware, uninformed and again stupid…There was a preponderence of evidence in 2008 to prove the freak was a communnist – there is no excuse for stupidity

    That doesn’t sound like a party, but a conniving socialist movement.

    Remember the Lefties denying that Obama was a socialist?  What?  “There’s no proof that he’s a socialist” they’d say……”none whatsoever!!”  “Why he’s no more a socialist than Vice President Biden, Nancy Pelosi or Debbie Wasserman Schultz!!”  “How can you possibly paint a man as a socialist without evidence.”

    Well, we have the evidence and, if the MSM had done its job, the evidence would have been made public in 2008.  The MSM is corrupt to the marrow of its bones and gleefully snaked this weasel into the White House. 

    I have seen our news media engaged in some loathsome pursuits but, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of our Main Stream News Media.

    Not expecting much coverage on this, but it will come in handy for those smarmy pundits mocking people who declare Obama a Socialist.

  • Mauser

    I wish Obama were so “tame” as he was when he declared himself a Socialist. Now he’s appointing sworn enemies of the United States to cabinet level positions and deploying fully weaponized drones in and over our Nation. Check out the truth at:

    Some people are just to dumb to realize what a liar Obama is and always has been.  It is unfortunate that all of his misdeeds and lies cannot be divulged before the coming election.. Hopefully those in the conservative media will continue to bring forth all of the truth about Obama, because he certainly is not going to tell the truth.

  • Dan McClellan

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I announce today that America will be at war with a new nation within three months.  That is by September.  How unfortunate for our troops that our current President will use them for political gain. 

    The ONLY way he will be able to have the slightest chance of being reelected is to take America to another war.  I weep.

      Narcissists only truly care about themselves. The end always justifies the means.  That is what makes him so much more dangerous than the average progressive, socialist, fascist, Marxist, communist, New Party member!  He will do whatever we let him get away with to hold on to his presidency.  Sadly, another war is certainly in his tool box if that’s what he decides is necessary!

    • Publius Valerius

      Right, Dan.  I was afraid of the same thing a few weeks ago, but since then I’ve seen Obama’s support just wash away like a sand castle, so that even if he as Commander in Chief wanted to go it alone and declare war, I feel confident that many even in his own party would call him on it and hold him in check.  Everyone and his hypoallergenic dog would see it as yet another shameless and desperate ploy to remain in power.

    I have dem friends who voted for Obama who thought he wasn’t a socialist or communist.  When confronted with the truth, especially this news, I believe most of them will desert him.  As we can see from Wisconsin and even California (San Diego and San Jose union vote-down), the majority of the country is aligning themselves against Obama.  America has always been a center-right country, not center left.  The silent majority is speaking up and the moderates and independents as well.  We must make sure this info gets into the hands of friends, family, co-workers and everyone else we know so they vote against him.  Do NOT buy an major publications metropolitan newspapers, watch any network news, etc.  They must feel the sting of their betrayal.

    Definitely no surprise to most of us, but good to get all this info out!   All these spy Drones on normal Americans is also a Socialist tactic, and even Senator Diane Feinstein is very upset with the Obama administration leaking national security information about Iran…. Clinton is against the attacks on Capitalism and Free Entrepreneurship!   BO A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, HAS PUT THIS NATION IN SERIOUS JEOPARDY!

    Most people, including myself, never heard of the New Party and will not be persuaded by this new evidence.  Just anothergotcha issue like Bill Ayers or Rev. Wright and a supporting castof hundreds.  I’m guessing we’ll just have to stay with his recordwhich proves he’s a Socialist without all this ancient history.

    Am at a point of not knowing what to believe about the President.  Thus, I believe my gut reaction.  Think back to his First appearance when running for office.  My gut told me, Do Not Trust him. Many democrat friends have said they are sorry they voted for him and will Not vote for him again. enough said.

    When a person lies enough, eventually they get caught. Obama, the socialist, has now been caught. But President Prevaricator is so pathological in his lying, he will continue to do so. He is more deceitful than Nixon was. He is the Deceiver in Chief! Not a single word from his mouth can be believed!

       I can hear crickets in the Main stream media, so they and the Obamabots can continue with their attacks on those people who label their messiah Obama, a socialist.

    Just some background info to pass on.

    The New Party was a Marxist political coalition whose objective was
    to endorse and elect leftist public officials — most often Democrats.
    The New Party’s short-term objective was to move the Democratic Party
    leftward, thereby setting the stage for the eventual rise of new Marxist
    third party.

    Most New Party members hailed from the Democratic Socialists of
    America and the militant organization ACORN. The party’s Chicago chapter
    also included a large contingent from the Committees of Correspondence,
    a Marxist coalition of former Maoists, Trotskyists, and Communist Party
    USA members.

    The New Party’s modus operandi included the political strategy of
    “electoral fusion,” where it would nominate, for various political
    offices, candidates from other parties (usually Democrats), thereby
    enabling each of those candidates to occupy more than one ballot line in
    the voting booth. By so doing, the New Party often was able to
    influence candidates’ platforms. (Fusion of this type is permitted in
    seven states — Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Mississippi, New York,
    South Carolina, and Vermont — but is common only in New York.)

    Though Illinois was not one of the states that permitted electoral
    fusion, in 1995 Barack Obama nonetheless sought the New Party’s
    endorsement for his 1996 state senate run. He was successful in
    obtaining that endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers
    as campaign workers.

    In 1996, three of the four candidates endorsed by the New Party won
    their electoral primaries. The three victors included Barack Obama (in
    the 13th State Senate District), Danny Davis (in the 7th Congressional
    District), and Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in the 7th
    Subcircuit Court. All four candidates attended an April 11, 1996 New
    Party membership meeting to express their gratitude for the party’s

    The New Party’s various chapters similarly helped to elect dozens of other political candidates in a host of American cities.

    One of the more notable New Party members was Carl Davidson, a
    Chicago-based Marxist who became a political supporter of Barack Obama
    in the mid-1990s.

    In 1997 the New Party’s influence declined precipitously after the
    U.S. Supreme Court ruled that electoral fusion was not protected by the
    First Amendment’s freedom of association clause. By 1998 the party was
    essentially defunct. Daniel Canto and other key party members went on to
    establish a new organization with similar ideals, the Working Families
    Party of New York.

    This information about his membership in the socialist party has been out there on the internet since before he was elected. All the while Fox News, including Beck kept saying there is no evidence that he is a socialist and I just kept screaming at the TV and wondering why they were hiding this. I’m still wondering. They knew all along.

  • Bruce Wyner

    This is no surprise to me,Obamas rise to power is unprecedented no one goes from community organizer to president of the U.S in such short time without a major conspiracy without the help of people like George Soros that seek to end life in our country as we know it.With out voter fraud Obama would have been sent packing after his first term the love affair was over and a majority of white people did not support Obamas socialist policy,s that now grip the country.Obama care passed in the dead of night unconstitutionally and John Roberts was most likely black mailed into his decision to not call obama care a tax.Every single minority in the country could have voted for Obama and he still would have lost the election in fact right up to the last week a landslide for Romney wad predicted.Also No president has ever won reelection when unemployment was at 8 % but miraculously the numbers came under the 8% right before the election,The Obama care rollout was an incredible failure and right before the March dead line another Miracle took place and they reached their 7 million goal.Now consider this Obama care is the LAW and if it was as good as they perceive it to be why have only 7 million signed on rather opting out to pay the penalty ( tax ) the Demorats claimed 45 million Americans were uninsured a number which include over 12 million illegals by the way.Now as of April 1 49 million people are uninsured.Every single time Obama opens his mouth out comes another lie and the demorats are allready trying to figure out how to steal the mid term elections.look for another democratic miracle to come in November.The fix is in.
