Just how much do Obama and his mentor have in common?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Paul Kengor, author of Mercury Ink’s latest book The Communist, believes you cannot understand a man if you don’t know his mentor. As it turns out, President Obama had a mentor that we know absolutely nothing about – Frank Marshall Davis, a card carrying member of Communist Party USA.

The left and the media have conveniently ignored Davis (and the fact that he is mentioned in Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father, a staggering 22 times), but Kengor has found indisputable facts about the man Obama regards as a mentor that will make your head spin.

Davis was so radical the FBI placed him on the government Security Index, and his FBI file exceeds 600 pages in length. A columnist by trade, Davis edited and wrote for communist newspapers around the U.S., where he frequently used words like ‘change’ and ‘fundamental transformation.’ His writings indicate that he demonized big business, despised oil companies, considered Wall Street to be a group of “greedy millionaires,” and bashed Republican tax cuts for going easy on the rich.

“I’m going to give you a list, one by one, of what Frank Marshall Davis believed, and couple it what we’ve seen the President say or do,” Glenn said on radio this morning. Below are some of the highlights.

1) Frank Marshall Davis advocated for wealth distribution in many of his newspaper articles. What has the President said on this matter:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.

2) Frank Marshall Davis favored tax payer funded universal healthcare. Obama has said:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care plan. That’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out – a single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan.

3) Frank Marshall Davis supported government stimulus and trumpeted the public sector over the private sector. Sounds awfully familiar:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Only government can provide the short term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe.

4) Frank Marshall Davis talked about the rich not paying their fair share – that corporations and the wealthy get breaks others do not. Have you heard that before:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: The truth is you can’t solve our deficit without cutting spending, but you also can’t solve it without asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share, or without taking on loopholes that give special interests and big corporations tax breaks that middle class Americans don’t get.

This list just scratches the surface, but the similarities speak for themselves.

“[Davis] was relentless,” Glenn concluded. “If you really want to go deep. If you really want to know who this guy is. If you want to understand why [Obama] can get up and say, ‘Henry Ford never did it himself,’ read The Communist, available in bookstores everywhere.”

    How much does Obama follow in the footsteps of his Communist mentor?

    Based on the evidence and the supporting statements right from the mouth of Mr Obama given in his different speeches and statements, he is a ideological clone; the failure and madness of the communist ideology of Frank Davis are made manifest and personified within the current reign of Mr Obama.

    Recall that Obama declared as well five days before his inaguration: “In five days we begin the fundamental transformation of the United States.”

    So it is that Obama and his extremist allies and brethren figured out how to crush the system from within; and are making it happen. We have a man and his administration making active and deliberate Rebellion against the Republic, the people, and the Constitution itself. He seeks the overthrow of our Constitution, and to establish himself as dictator over a ruined land.

    It’s not just obama, but also his supporters.  These are the enemy of liberty.  I am waiting for the peaceful separation.  I’ve been serving notice to lib friends and relatives alike that they will have to live with their choices.  Some are quite angry. Que Sera Sera.

      Understood, Mr Obama is like a modern day Jim Jones who attracts followers into the arms of death; the Obamamites willingly follow wherever he leads them until it is too late to turn back.

    “advocated for wealth distribution…” Don’t we all? Universal healthcare? Even at the outset, what eventually became Obamacare never even proposed the so-called “public option.” And the rest of the list is just basic–and very tame–lefty talk, not even very progressive. Obama may well indeed be a communist, but this list means nothing.

    ironically, you can search youtube and find clips of reagan and romney advocating variations of these very principles.

    One of the biggest problems with the Communist Idealogy is that it is Insider Trading amongst the Priviledged Few (and the few in power are always willing to slay/conquer the lower ranks to keep them in check)…

    Mao has killed more of his countrymen than the Germans killed in WWII from various nations (wow what a role model for some our leadership).

    Plus, they want all of our guns/weapons that we can use to defend ourselves from their Tyrany!

    I Do Not Believe They Are Getting Away With This BS…

    Gee, do you also think Davis taught him how not to work,
    get into college on affirmative action, get graduated with
    no transcript and then go on the public dole as a community
    organizer.  Obama is a first class tick.  All he has ever done
    is suck off the public tit.  My God, how can anyone think
    he has something relevant to say when it comes to
    America and what made us great. The man is a fraud
    and a self-aggrandising opportunist.
    He should listen to his wife with her “let’s move” slogan
    and move out of the White House. And as for her
    eating healthy–why don’t we put the congress on
    a diet?

    My father debated issues for the Civil Rights Congress along with Frank Davis. My father also shared with me some of his beliefs before he left the Party. I have read Paul Kengor’s book, The Communist, and he has done his homework. Most of my father’s former comrades are in Kengor’s book. I learned a lot from reading it. Putting those facts with what my father told me presents a scary situation. Obama appears to be more blatant with his true beliefs. If you have any doubts about Obama’s mentor, please read Paul Kengor’s book. You might also check out “Blood on the Constitution” and learn how much communism has webbed itself into our political system beginning in the early 1920’s.

    Goood qvessstion.  Have you seen the men’s magazines pictures of Obama’s mother allegedly taken by Frank Marshall Davis?  These pictures strongly suggest that Davis was far more familiar with Dunham than Obama Senior ever was.  It raises a whole new big question: Who’s your daddy? 

  • Anonymous

    There is a huge difference. Davis was, if an idiot ideologically, at least a principled one. Obama has NO prindiples whatever. Oh, then too, Davis was a great deal more intelligent; takes much study to keep up on the volumes of Marxist-Leninist ideological twaddle.

    Glenn, Take the jump from Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Propagandist, Marxist and Poet…to…

    Glenn, I’m certain you know the 2nd Amendment is treatened to be vertually cancelled and replaced by the UN Gun Control Treaty if Obama and Hillary’s plan to by-pass the American people and the US Congress is successful. This Treaty is the key final step of UN Agenda 21 to disarm every country and then send UN Forces in to take control. This means mass genicide will follow! Obama and Hillary’s …plan depends on Obama getting his second term. (I will post the link for this full story by Dick Morris.)
    What magic bullet will take Obama down, insure he is a one term President and save our Right to Bear Arms? You have been discussing Frank Marshall Davis; Communist Propagandist, Marxist and poet. A documantary by Joel Gilbert presents a compelling case for the shocking story of Obama’s Real Father that lifts the curtain on Obama’s dark history. Do take the jump from, Frank Davis “Mentor”, to “Dreams From My Real Father” to help get this explosive story out in the public eye in time for the election. Obama does not want this story to get out!!!

    Many of the promises these people make are the very same that lead to the communist  revolution that took over Russia and many surounding countries. We all know don’t we of the many millions that were then murdered? We all know what a failure it was and that they ended up with many poor, a small middle class and a small wealthy class? We all know that the people suffered for over half a century at the whim of gov. control, don’t we? How can there be so many ignorant peple out there?

    This Marxist has to go. No too ways about it. I can’t stand his voice and his finger pointing.  The way he talk’s is like a dictator, giving out orders. There is something that he is not telling us. Especially with all the new EX. orders. To trust him, you have got to be crazy. I knew who and what he is before he was even elected. I just had wished others would have seen him the way I saw him. To everyone be VERY careful of days ahead.  We all better have a backbone of steel from pressures ahead.  The road is going to be challenging.

          Could be. Mark Davis served the country in a very high, distinguished manner, which is very odd considering the way his father actively sought to destroy the country through communism.

        Well, bill, when/if the sh– hits the fan re: his b/c being faked and B.O. has to go

        the route of DNA to prove Davis is his father (if it is so), then all the hullabaloo

        about him not being a ”natural born citizen” will be laid to rest.   Course, I don’t

        know what the Davis family would think if it turns out to be true.

        • Anonymous

          There would be a lot of disappointed people in Kenya if it turns out that Obama were proven to be Frank Marshall Davis’ son.  Yes, that would mean that Obama IS a ‘natural-born’ citizen, but it would also go a long way to explaining why he’s had to lie about his past and why his birth certificate had to be forged.

          Most telling is that the MSM has completely ignored Obama’s long-stated relationship with his mentor, ‘Frank’ who practically raised him, along with his communist-sympthizer grandparents… It’s not just that the press has kept Obama’s communist influence buried… it’s that the press doesn’t mind that Obama’s a communist and that should tell you all you need to know about the MSM!

          Joe McCarthy was right! – We were being invaded/infiltrated by communists in the 1950’s – They now provide 90% of the mainstream news fed to the American people and probably a similar percentage of the political training in our public universities.

            Enuffs,  I laid out the scenario some time ago as this: When

            Stanley found herself pregnant (told her parents, perhaps using

            the true father’s name.)  IF the baby daddy was a fellow student

            or a neighbor, or a MARRIED man (see Davis), the family had

            to scramble to find a man who would CLAIM parentage.  They

            found him in Obama Sr. by paying him off (college expenses etc

            and he, knowing he had a wife in Kenya, probably did not feel

            ”bound” to Stanley in any way,)  You know the story—she took

            a trip to Kenya where Barry either was or wasn’t born, and after

            returning to Hawaii, ”Papa” took off shortly for the states and

            more college studies.  Mama went to WA and the two really

            never set up housekeeping together. A ”divorce” followed.

            But has a marriage certificate ever been produced?   I really

            can’t say—don’t know.

    I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Mr Romney gets elected so we know more about ways to destroy the  middle class, enrich the wealthy even more, and forget about the poor among
    us..  And we’ll have the delight of listening to his tea party claptrap.  I can hardly wait.  It is of interest that in all this talk Mr Romney has spoken only in sweeping and rather vague terms.  Why doesn’t he lay out a plan so that voters can make an informed choice here?  Perhaps he doesn’t want to voters to be full informed.  This, of course, does not surprise me since it’s a favorite tactic of politicians on both sides.

      Another dunce heard from. I am no Romney fan, but to say all this without ever mentioning what this entire article was about is B S. Obamao has done nothing but lie the entire time and you have the nerve to talk about the “Republican?” When are you going to wake up to the lying sack of shit Obamao is? Maybe you are just another socialist/communist?
