Obama's Communist mentor boasts about lying to the FBI

Andrew Marcus says that in a recently released video, Obama admits that his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, schooled him on white racism.

"And the conversation finally ends with me having a conversation with a close friend of my maternal grandfather, a close friend of gramps, a black man from Kansas named Frank. Actually at the time a fairly well known poet named Frank Marshall Davis who had moved to Hawaii and lived there. And so I have a discussion with him about the kinds of frustrations I'm having and he sort of schools me that I should get used to these frustrations."

Davis is probably responsible for Obama's respect for law enforcement.

In the following exclusive video, Frank Marshall Davis boasts about lying to the FBI in order to hurt "Uncle Toms" and promote "militants":

INTERVIEWER 1: You had some few later dealings with the FBI throughout your life, yeah?

FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS: Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I've had the FBI, but I, I often had the FBI contacting me in, at the Associated Negro Press. They were going, they wanted to find out whether such and such a person who had applied for a job in Washington was a, a good risk. So I had determined that if this brother who applied for this job in Washington was an Uncle Tom, then I would tell the FBI that this person was no, was a risk, and he was no good. And so I, I used to work this in the reverse, and if a person had, was officially a militant, I would praise them the highest. I would say he is completely in favor of the Constitution of the, he supports the entire Constitution and so forth, so it would have just the, I hoped it would have just the opposite effect on the FBI.

INTERVIEWER 1: OK we'll, we'll stop right there on this one. Maybe it'll be a good note to call it off.

The interviewer was probably hoping this footage would never see the light of day.

Obama's friends and mentors were all radicals who hated the US government. Too bad the media never felt any of this was relevant. Worse, they called anyone who was concerned about Obama's radical ties "racist."

Arrogant fool didn't know that information from Davis's 601 page FBI file reveals that Davis (born 1905) became interested in the Communist Party as far back as 1931.

If Davis gave a guy a "thumbs up" the FBI knew he was dirty -- "thumbs down" he was OK.

Obama talks about Frank

In this clip, excerpted from an Obama reading of "Dreams From My Father," Obama references Frank Marshall Davis, who was Obama's teenage mentor and was influential in his life and education.

This clip is really far more damaging to Obama's grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham, for it was gramps who brought Davis into his home to mentor his grandson. This clearly shows that Obama's grandfather was comfortable with the pro-Soviet, pro-Red China, card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA card number 47544) and most likely shared his views.

Information from Davis's 601 page FBI file reveals that Davis (born 1905) became interested in the Communist Party as far back as 1931.

Certainly from the mid/late '30s to the early '40s Davis was involved in several Communist Party fronts including the the National Negro Congress, the League of American Writers, the National Federation for Constitutional Liberties and the Civil Rights Congress

The FBI first began tracking Davis in 1944 when they identified him as member of the Communist Party's Dorie Miller Club in Chicago. "Frank Marshall Davis.

Dr. Kathryn Takara, a professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa did her dissertation on Davis and spent much time with him between 1972 until he passed away in 1987.

In an analysis posted online, she notes that Davis, who was a columnist for the Honolulu Record, brought "an acute sense of race relations and class struggle throughout America and the world" and that he openly discussed subjects such as American imperialism, colonialism and exploitation. She described him as a "socialist realist" who attacked the work of the House Un-American Activities Committee.

Davis, in his own writings, had said that Robeson and Harry Bridges, the head of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and a secret member of the CPUSA, had suggested that he take a job as a columnist with the Honolulu Record "and see if I could do something for them." The ILWU was organizing workers there and Robeson’s contacts were "passed on" to Davis, Takara writes.

Takara says that Davis "espoused freedom, radicalism, solidarity, labor unions, due process, peace, affirmative action, civil rights, Negro History week, and true Democracy to fight imperialism, colonialism, and white supremacy. He urged coalition politics."

Poems from Davis are in the book "Black Moods" which was edited by John Tidwell, a University of Kansas professor and expert on Davis' writings. He confirmed that Davis joined the Communist Party but that he publicly tried to deny his affiliations.

Asked why Takara thought Obama didn't identify Frank in his book by his full name, she replied, "Maybe, he didn't want people delving into it."

Stanley Dunham, Obama's grandfather, was  friends with Davis, a bohemian libertine who drank heavily and loved jazz -- both had roots reaching back to Kansas and had families of mixed races -- and the black writer took an interest in Obama.

"Our grandfather ... thought (Frank) was a point of connection, a bridge if you will, to the larger African-American experience for my brother," Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama's half-sister, said during a recent interview.

For Obama, Davis was an intriguing figure, "with his books and whiskey breath and the hint of hard-earned knowledge behind the hooded eyes."

Dunham and his grandson would spend evenings at Davis's dilapidated home in Waikiki, Honolulu's main tourist district. Davis, who had raised a family with a white wife, would read his poetry and share whiskey with Dunham, Obama recalled.

Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a friend of Davis' who also lives in Honolulu, said Dunham wanted Obama to know that there were other children like him who were part black and part white, she said.

"Stan was real proud of that," she said, adding that it was rare to see black men with white women at the time.

"He  knew Stan real well. They’d play Scrabble and drink and crack jokes and argue. Frank always won and he was always very braggadocio about it too. It was all jocular. They didn’t get polluted drunk. And Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together."

"Stan had been promising to bring Barry by because we all had that in common. Frank’s kids were half-white, Stan’s grandson was half-black and my son was half-black. We all had that in common and we all really enjoyed it.  We got a real kick out of reality."

Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama's half-sister, told the Associated Press recently that her grandfather had seen Davis was "a point of connection, a bridge if you will, to the larger African-American experience for my brother"

According to Miss Weatherly-Williams, Davis lost touch with Dunham some time in the 1980s.

Obama describes driving to Davis' home in Waikiki after learning that his white grandmother was so afraid of a black panhandler she did not want to take the bus to work. Davis told the teenager that his grandmother was correct to feel scared because she understood African-Americans "have a reason to hate."

Davis said Obama's grandfather would never understand people like him because they hadn't experienced the humiliations he had, according to Obama's memoir. As he left Davis's house that night, Obama wrote, he knew he was completely alone for the first time in his life.

Davis appears again later in the book, when Obama recalls meeting the writer shortly before leaving for college on the mainland. At that meeting, Davis scolded Obama for his listless attitude toward college and warned him not to leave his race behind, which he called "the real price of admission" to higher education.

"Leaving your race at the door.  Leaving your people behind…. You're not going to college to get educated. You're going to get trained…. They'll train you to forget what you already know. They'll train you so good, you'll start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that s**t." And then Frank pronounces the modern version of the one key concept which the Democratic Party, under slavery, segregation, and civil rights, has sought to ingrain in the mind of every black person: "You may be a well-trained, well-paid nigger, but you're a nigger just the same."

A few days later Obama left Hawaii for Occidental College in Los Angeles.

Communists win the day -- Frank Marshall Davis would be proud of Obama

Erick Erickson says few could have predicted that communist regimes would win the day on December 17, 2014. Communism was so twentieth century. But Barack Obama, promising to fundamentally transform America, has done so. His mentor, communist activist Frank Marshall Davis, would be proud of him.

ObamaDavis.jpg

To reiterate my conclusion on Barack Obama's world view and policy objectives: to make the world safer, the United States must be less safe. To make the world more stable, the United States must be less stable. To make the world more prosperous, the United States must be less prosperous.

Assisting Barack Obama in this are the Washington technocrats, bureaucrats, and numerous party apparatchiks of both parties who have decided America is in decline and the decline should be managed instead of overcome.

So as the ruble craters and Venezuela crumbles, both having subsidized the communist regime in Cuba, Barack Obama will step in to prop up the regime. It is worth noting that, despite all the claims that the Cuban embargo was not successful, its requirements that Cuba purchase American products in cash instead of on credit has kept the Cuban regime from accumulating wealth to the degree of other communist despots.

Now, Barack Obama will ensure the Castro brothers and their heirs accumulate great wealth and all the Cubans have to do is promise to give greater internet access to their citizens. That's it.

Meanwhile, North Korea gets to threaten and intimidate an American film company and then threaten 9/11 style attacks on American movie theaters. The American response? Nothing. Sony Pictures folded, along with American movie houses, knowing the President would never back them up against the thuggish North Korean regime.

Obama should invite the head of Sony Pictures, the actors and director of "The Interview, and the press to a screening of the movie at the White House. But then that would be an act of strength by the President who wears mom jeans.

And America cannot do that. We must be weak for the world to be strong in Barack Obama's world view.

Barack Obama sought to fundamentally transform America and he is doing it. As Rush Limbaugh noted to much outrage, for America to succeed, Barack Obama must fail. Unfortunately, the nation is failing as Obama succeeds.

There is, however, one bit of irony. After a week of liberals bellyaching about the United States "torturing" terrorists, we have kowtowed to the terrorists of North Korea and bailed out the Cuban regime -- a regime that jails gays, Christians, and dissidents and engages in physical torture and routine killing of any who dare oppose them.

In other words, the leftist outrage is exposed as more about hating the United States than hating human rights abuses.

ObamaMedia struggles to conceal Obama's Communist mentor

Cliff Kincaid says a liberal writer named Elspeth Reeve, who writes for “The Atlantic” magazine, frets that Barack Obama’s relationship to Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis is getting more attention from voters and may constitute an “October surprise” that dooms the President’s re-election chances. She calls Davis only an “alleged communist” when in fact he was a card-carrying CPUSA member (Communist Party card number was 47544) with a 600-page FBI file.

Her story goes further downhill from there, clearly suggesting that Obama’s media backers are worried and desperate to conceal the truth.

Practicing a new form of damage control, she acknowledges that “Davis was important to Obama” because the evidence of the relationship cannot be denied, but claims that “Obama doesn’t seem to have been important to Davis.” Her evidence for this claim is that Davis biographer John Edgar Tidwell was quoted as saying that there was no mention of Obama in any of Davis’s papers. She thinks this gap in the record somehow gets Obama off the hook for a relationship with a communist who doubled as a pornographer.

But what she is acknowledging, without saying so directly, is that Davis did not want his relationship with Obama to be revealed. This makes sense, especially if Davis was a Communist Party member under FBI surveillance engaged in espionage or recruitment. His file does suggest espionage on his part.

The relationship was disclosed back in 2007 when a CPUSA writer talked about it, leading to the identification of “Frank” in Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, as Frank Marshall Davis. The appropriate question, never asked by the major media, is why Obama would cover up Frank’s real identity. He makes a reference to “Frank” 22 times in his book.

Before I gave a speech on the subject of Davis at the September 21st AIM conference, Paul Kengor, author of a book on Davis, The Communist, told me, “I haven’t received a single media inquiry from anyone in the mainstream media, despite the book making the top 10 on the New York Times’ bestseller list and hitting number 1 in non-fiction on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com. Not one reporter from the mainstream media has bothered to contact me…They will do anything to protect Barack Obama. The truth be damned.”

The cover-up is getting more intense as Election Day approaches.

Paul Kengor now draws our attention to the fact that Obama’s audio version of Dreams from My Father has omitted every reference to “Frank” that was in the book.

For example, the book says, “It was the same dilemma that old Frank had posed to me the year I left Hawaii.” The audio version says, “It was the same dilemma posed to me the year I left Hawaii.”

Kengor told The Blaze, “This is blatant, flagrant—clearly a concealment. And it’s in Obama’s voice. There’s no question that Obama knew of this. No question.”

Joel Gilbert maintains that the cover-up stems from the fact that Davis was not only Obama’s mentor but his biological father (this, of course, is only Gilbert's allegation -- he has no proof). He has produced “Dreams from My Real Father,” a film being distributed to millions of voters in various swing states.

Gilbert reports that 1.5 Million DVDs of the film have been shipped to Florida; 700,000 to Colorado; 500,000 to Iowa; 1.2 million to Ohio; 100,000 to New Hampshire; 100,000 to Nevada; and 3 million are going to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

“Because almost all levels of the mainstream media are suppressing the information in ‘Dreams from My Real Father,’ my distribution company is mailing millions of free copies of the DVD across the United States,” Gilbert says.

His theory is controversial, so much so that Gilbert tells me that The Washington Post, USA Today, and The New York Times would not run paid ads for it. “This ad has been declined,” the Times told Gilbert, with no further explanation.

On the other hand, The Washington Post and USA Today did run paid ads from pornographer Larry Flynt offering $1 million for information on Mitt Romney’s “unreleased tax forms” and bank accounts.

When the New York Post ran Gilbert’s paid ad, MSNBC’s Alex Wagner went ballistic and came to Obama’s defense. She labeled Davis a mere “labor activist,” continuing a cover-up in the media that has been going on for over four years.

The Gilbert film is now available through Netflix, the Internet subscription service that sends movies and TV programs over the internet to PCs, Macs, and TVs. Netflix has more than 27 million members.

Mention of Frank Marshall Davis scrubed from audio book

Paul Kengor says The Communist is based on declassified material from Soviet archives, FBI files, and archived articles from Communist Party publications. Among the material reproduced in Kengor’s book are reports from Davis’s 600-page FBI file listing Davis’s Communist Party number: 47544. Kengor’s book provides stunning information that the mainstream media has carefully avoided. Like Breitbart News’s Vetting project, Kengor’s exposé is doing the vetting of Obama that the pro-Obama media refuses to do.

Breitbart News Network: Professor Kengor, you’ve told us some very intriguing things about Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, including the interview we did on the troika of Obama, David Axelrod, and Valerie Jarrett, all of whom have common political ancestors in Chicago’s Communist Party circles in the 1940s. Before we get to your latest tidbit, just give us a quick update on what you reported on Obama and Axelrod and Jarrett.

Kengor: No problem. Frank Marshall Davis, a literal card-carrying member of Communist Party USA, was extremely active in Chicago Communist Party circles in the 1940s, before he relocated to Hawaii, where he would meet a young Obama in the fall of 1970. In Chicago, he worked with the political ancestors of both Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s closest adviser, and David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist. As to Jarrett, Frank Marshall Davis worked with her grandfather, Robert Taylor, and her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, in communist causes and campaigns. As to Axelrod, Davis worked with the Canter family, Harry and David Canter; before they relocated to Chicago, the Canters actually lived in Moscow and worked for Stalin’s government, with the senior Canter a translator of Lenin’s writings. The Canter family would later mentor David Axelrod in Chicago in the 1970s.

So, in sum, Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, worked in communist activities in Chicago with the political ancestors of Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod.

BNN: You can’t make this up.

Kengor: No, you can’t make it up. In the book, I document it meticulously, with sources primarily from official Congressional reports produced by Democrat-run committees.

BNN: Okay, let’s get to the latest bit. You say Frank Marshall Davis is mentioned in the 1995 edition of Dreams from My Father.

Kengor: He’s listed 22 times as “Frank” and referenced dozens of additional times via pronouns and other forms of reference. He appears in every section of Obama’s memoirs, throughout the text, well beyond just Hawaii.

BNN: But “Frank’s” full name was never divulged once, right?

Kengor: That’s right. I’m convinced that Obama avoided doing so because he knew even then that it was a major political risk for him to disclose the full identity of a mentor who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party, and who was so radical in his Soviet work that the Democrats who ran the Senate Judiciary Committee called him to Washington to testify in December 1956. In fact, Frank Marshall Davis’s politics were so extreme that he was placed on the federal government’s Security Index—meaning that if a war broke out between the United States and Soviet Union, he could have been immediately arrested.

BNN: Our current president had a mentor who was on the Security Index?

Kengor: Yes. With a mentor like that, Barack Obama should have a hard time getting a security clearance for an entry-level government job, let alone entrance into the Oval Office. The American voter, however, found a way around that process.

BNN: Nonetheless, Obama at least partially acknowledged “Frank” in Dreams from My Father, right?

Kengor: That’s right. I think Obama realized he couldn’t ignore Frank altogether, given that the man was such a powerful, abiding influence.

BNN: In 2005, Dreams from My Father was released as an audio version—an abridged audio version. How often is “Frank” mentioned in the audio version?

Kengor: Not once.

BNN: Not one time?

Kengor: Not once. Zero. Nada. “Frank” is completely purged. Blacklisted. Gone.

BNN: Why do you think that is?

Kengor: By 2005, Obama had given his historic Democratic National Convention speech, had just gotten elected to the U.S. Senate, and was commencing a meteoric rise to the presidency. I’m certain that Obama wanted safe distance from “Frank” politically. Like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, this was another significant radical influence that Obama thus tossed under the bus.

BNN: Is Obama aware that “Frank” was purged from the audio version?

Kengor: Oh, yes. Obama narrates the audio version. The liberals feted him with a Grammy for his sterling narration. And the back cover of the audio states, “This abridgment has been approved by the author.” Obama knows. The only way Obama couldn’t know would be if he didn’t write the original book. Liberals don’t want to go down that road, do they?

BNN: The audio version is abridged. Maybe Obama simply removed, say, the one small section in the Hawaii chapter that mentioned “Frank”?

Kengor: No, that’s not the case. Frank appears in every section of the memoir, all three parts, starting in Hawaii and then when Obama thinks of him later in Africa, Europe, Chicago. It’s not like Frank appears only on pages, say, 15-22. He appears throughout the text. It’s eerie to be reading the book in hard cover, and listening simultaneously to the audio, and see and hear everything the same, line to line, sentence to sentence, paragraph after paragraph, page upon page, and then suddenly, on a dime, out of the blue, come upon a printed sentence or paragraph that mentions “Frank” and—bam—the audio suddenly skips ahead. It’s chilling. It’s clearly deliberate. No question about it. It’s clear concealment.

BNN: Can you give us an example of how “Frank” was selectively removed?

Kengor: Yes, here’s just one: In the 1995 text version, one reference reads: “It was the same dilemma that old Frank had posed to me the year I left Hawaii.” In the 2005 audio version, it reads: “It was the same dilemma posed to me the year I left Hawaii.”

BNN: Has anyone in the mainstream media noticed this?

Kengor: Maybe. Actually, probably. But they haven’t reported on it. Look, that’s not their job. Their job is to protect Obama, not expose him. They aren’t real journalists. They’re political partisans first and journalists second. They’re not honest, or they delude themselves on a grand scale. They’ve sacrificed their noble profession to an ignoble political ideology.

BNN: Have any mainstream media journalists contacted you on this?

Kengor: Are you kidding? No way. Not a chance. They’ll send a team of a dozen reporters to fact-check Sarah Palin’s memoirs or a Romney speech, but not to investigate the president they’ve committed to coddle and preserve.

BNN: Where can our readers go to learn more?

Kengor: My book, The Communist, is available at Amazon.com. Go there and buy a book for yourself and your favorite liberal.

BNN: Do you think liberals will actually read this book?

Kengor: If they’re as open-minded and tolerant and diversity-loving as they claim, then, yes, they’ll read it. But, in reality, they’re very closed-minded and totally intolerant of political viewpoints they disagree with. Let’s see if they can live up to their convictions. Or, like Obama, maybe they’ll relegate this one to their personal blacklist.

Obama's redistribution: What did Frank Marshall Davis say?

Dr. Paul Kengor says Given my book on Barack Obama's communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, I'm regularly asked whether the latest Obama statement -- on economics, on wealth, on business, on the middle class, etc. -- rings of Davis.  Invariably, yes, it does.  Not surprisingly, I'm being asked just that in regard to the new Obama statement on "redistribution," which has just emerged in a tape recording from 1998.  Does that statement likewise smack of Frank Marshall Davis?  Yes, no question.
 
For starters, Davis, a literal card-carrying member of Communist Party USA, believed in wealth redistribution.  That's a central tenet of the communist faith.  Generally, Davis, like Obama, favored wealth redistribution from so-called greedy "corporations" to fund "health insurance" and "public works projects" (Davis's words).  Davis advocated government stimulus to rescue America from (allegedly) another Great Depression.  Like Obama, he supported large-scale government wealth redistribution to keep America's economy (and unemployment) from getting worse.
 
Beyond that, Davis blasted big business, Wall Street, banks, big oil, "excess profits," "corporate profits" and "fat contracts," "millionaires," and the "wealthy."  He attacked "GOP" tax cuts that "spare the rich" and only "benefit millionaires."  He called out the "corporation executive" for not paying his "fair" share.  He wanted to rid America of "huge funds" finding their way into the "pockets" of "Wall Street."  "Instead," he declared, "money should be spent for the benefit of the people instead of the corporations."  He favored nationalization and singled out General Motors for government action.  Broadly speaking, Frank Marshall Davis hailed the public sector over the private sector.
 
But in light of Barack Obama's comment on redistribution, there's one particular Davis column that stands out to me.  It was published in the January 26, 1950 edition of the Honolulu Record (the CPUSA publication for Hawaii) and titled "Free Enterprise or Socialism."
 
In this article, Frank Marshall Davis perceived an America on the economic brink, the victim of a "virtual dictatorship of Big Business."  He teed off on one of his most despised domestic enemies: General Motors.  He was indignant at GM's profits, which he felt were too high.  GM, said Davis, like America as a whole, was good at manufacturing one thing: "we have manufactured a national horror of socialism."
 
Notably, that line reminds me of one of the core Obama statements in the redistribution tape.  "There has been a systematic -- I don't think it's too strong to call it a propaganda campaign -- against the possibility of government action," says Obama.
 
In essence, Obama, like Davis, bemoaned a national propaganda campaign against what Davis candidly (and correctly) called "socialism" and what Obama more carefully called "government action."  Davis was characteristically more blunt and farther to the left; Obama was characteristically more careful and tried to avoid being perceived as too far to the left.
 
Later in the recording, Obama continued: "I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution -- because I actually believe in some redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody's got a shot."
 
Obama thus posed a choice for his audience: how do we structure government to best facilitate this redistribution?
 
Ironically, Frank Marshall Davis had finished his column on "Free Enterprise or Socialism" by likewise posing a choice for his audience: "And so, with still rising unemployment and a mounting depression," wrote Davis, "the time draws nearer when we will have to decide to oust the monopolies and restore a competing system of free enterprise, or let the government own and operate our major industries."
 
Davis, who elsewhere openly advocated government nationalization of certain industries -- including the meatpacking industry, a project he worked on in Chicago with Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett -- did not bother explaining which option he preferred.  Given that he was a communist, it seems pretty clear what option Davis favored.
 
In sum, once again, Barack Obama's thinking sounds hauntingly similar to that of the man who helped mentor him in the 1970s, the formative period of Obama's adolescence.
 
Now, can I say for certain that Obama learned about wealth redistribution from Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying communist?  No, I can't.  But the similarities strike me as remarkable and notable, with Davis being yet another of many far-left influences on the young Obama.  Each day, we learn more about our president's political past -- a past that the Obama media continues to fail to expose.

New York Post ad points a finger at Obama's "real father"

Jerome Corsi says -- after it was rejected by USA Today, Washington Post, New York Times.

The New York Post has accepted a full-page ad declaring Barack Obama’s real biological father is the late Communist Party activist Frank Marshall Davis, not the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama.
 
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert makes the case in his full-length documentary "Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception."
 
The ad will run in the Post’s New York City, national and international editions Tuesday and Sunday.
 
Convincing the newspaper to accept the full-page ad required Gilbert to go personally to the Post’s main editorial office in Manhattan.
 
"It took a lot of discussion," Gilbert told WND, "but we were given a very favorable position at the front of the newspaper in the news section."

Frank Marshall Davis and the subversion of the Democratic Party

Paul Kengor says a curious specter will be hovering over the Democratic convention this week.  It is the ghost of Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Party USA member 47544 and mentor to a young Barack Obama.
 
Readers of this site are well aware of Davis, from my writings and those of others who have posted articles here.  Davis joined the Communist Party during World War II and was unflinchingly pro-Soviet and pro-Red China. He was the founding editor-in-chief of the Chicago Star (1946-48) -- the CPUSA publication for Chicago -- before moving on to the Honolulu Record (1949-57), the CPUSA publication there.  He excoriated the Western leaders who stood in the way of Stalin, meaning Winston Churchill and Harry Truman, whom he portrayed as colonialists, imperialists, fascists, and racists.  He blasted American initiatives like the Marshall Plan, which he labeled "white imperialism" and "colonial slavery."  And because Democrats were the party in power at the time, and thus America's first line of defense against the Red Army, Davis -- who literally wrote poetry hailing Stalin's tanks -- vilified the Democratic Party in particular.
 
Frank Marshall Davis's politics were so radical, and so pro-Soviet, that the Democrats who ran the Senate in 1956 summoned him to Washington to testify on his pro-Soviet activities.  Even more remarkable, the FBI placed him on the federal government's Security Index, meaning that if a war broke out between the United States and the Soviet Union, Obama's mentor could have been placed under immediate arrest.
 
I've noted this here before.  I've also noted Davis's unceasing class-based rhetoric and class warfare.  Those words will be echoing throughout the halls of the Democratic convention this week, especially from the mouth of the man Davis influenced.
 
And yet, that isn't the only way that the presence of Davis will be felt this week.  His presence at the Democrats' convention will be felt in a much more profound, troubling way that speaks to the overall leftward drift of the modern Democratic Party.  Consider:
 
After all those years trashing the Democratic Party, Davis, like many American communists, decided to join the Democrats.  There were two primary factors that drove this decision: 1) American communists realized that they could never get elected to national office openly campaigning as communists, and 2) when Henry Wallace's Progressive Party collapsed in 1948, the communists who had pervaded it had nowhere else to go.  So, many American communists opted to hitch their wagon to a different star -- namely, to the most viable left-leaning party in America: the Democratic Party.  Sure, this would be a challenge when they encountered old anti-communist Democrats like John F. Kennedy, Pat McCarran, Thomas Dodd, and Scoop Jackson, but overall, in the long run, they would be patient, and they would seek alliances with Democrats much closer to their collectivist thinking.
 
Frank Marshall Davis was among these.  This tactical move by Davis is evident in his declassified 600-page FBI file, and specifically an April 1950 report that states that "members of the subversive element in Honolulu were concentrating their efforts on infiltration of the Democratic Party through control of Precinct Clubs and organizations."  These communist subversives, said the report, were pushing "their candidates in these Precinct Club elections."  According to the report, on April 6, 1950, one such candidate, Frank Marshall Davis, was elected "assistant secretary and delegate" to the Territorial Democratic Convention in his particular Precinct Club.  This was the Third Precinct of the Fifth District.  Davis, in fact, attended that convention on April 30, 1950.
 
In other words, the Hawaiian Communist Party went underground, realizing that it lacked political viability.  Hawaii's communists changed their tactics, concentrating instead on the mainstream Democratic Party, even running their members in local elections to seize delegate positions.  One of those who not only urged this tactic, but was himself elected to a Democratic precinct was Frank Marshall Davis.
 
With that, the steady subversion of the Democratic Party was on.  This began a long march to transform the Democratic Party from the party of Truman and JFK to the party of Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama.  And in a quite fascinating twist of history, Frank Marshall Davis, as a "Democrat," would go on to influence today's Democratic Party standard-bearer: Barack Obama.
 
Tellingly, Davis himself, in an eerily Obama-like sentiment, had emphasized the need for "fundamental change" in America -- advocating exactly that in his kick-off column for the Chicago Star on July 6, 1946.  Well, with the Democrats and with Barack Obama, he has gotten just that.  Frank Marshall Davis's presence will be there at the Democrats' convention this week.

All in the (Political) Family -- Obama's Marxist mentor and Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod

Paul Kengor says a new book by Richard Miniter, "Leading from Behind," contends that it was Valerie Jarrett, Obama's top adviser, who repeatedly urged Barack Obama not to take out Osama bin Laden, prompting Obama to cancel the mission three times.
 
Kudos to Miniter for this revelation. A year ago, I had written a feature article for American Spectator on Valerie Jarrett. One piece of information I had, but couldn't confirm, was precisely this. Good work by Richard Miniter.
 
Even then, there's much more to the rich background on Jarrett and Obama -- not to mention the third leg of the current troika that gave us "hope and change," David Axelrod.
 
As readers of this site are aware, I've just published a book on Barack Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. No president in the long history of this republic has had a mentor like Obama's. Frank Marshall Davis was a literal -- and I mean literal -- card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. I publish Davis's Communist Party number (47544) on the cover of the book, and fill an appendix with declassified FBI documents and Soviet archival material. Those documents reveal a Davis so suspicious that he was placed on the federal government's Security Index, which meant he could be immediately arrested if war broke out between the United States and USSR. With that sort of pro-Soviet influence throughout his adolescence (1970-79), Barack Obama would have trouble getting a security clearance for an entry-level government job, let alone sit in the Oval Office.
 
Nonetheless, Obama sits in that Oval Office today thanks to four factors: the American voter, a scandalously biased media, a skillful election strategy charted by David Axelrod, and the careful nurturing of Valerie Jarrett.
 
And most remarkable, Axelrod's and Jarrett's backgrounds and mentors connect to Obama's background and mentor in a most intriguing way. It's a stunning story, hard to believe. Follow closely:
 
Frank Marshall Davis, like Obama, found himself, his career, and his political calling in Chicago. It was there in the 1940s that he first began working for communist front-groups, joined the Communist Party, and wrote for and became the founding editor-in-chief of the Chicago Star, the city's Communist Party newspaper -- where Davis kicked off the newspaper with a column (July 6, 1946) pledging to advance "fundamental change." In these capacities, Davis, Obama's mentor, would work with the political ancestors of David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett.
 
I lay that out at length in the book, with all the documentation. Here, I will try to be brief and to the point.
 
In 1940, Frank Marshall Davis got involved in one of the worst communist fronts: the American Peace Mobilization. Congress called the group "one of the most notorious and blatantly communist fronts ever organized in this country" and "one of the most seditious organizations which ever operated in the United States." The group's objective (in 1940) was to stop the United States from entering the war against Hitler. Why? Because Hitler had signed a non-aggression pact with Stalin, and American communists, being loyal Soviet patriots who literally swore allegiance to the USSR, saluted Stalin.
 
One of the first examples I found of Frank Marshall Davis getting noticed by Congress was a 1944 Congressional report listing his involvement in the American Peace Mobilization. That same report also cited the involvement of a fellow Chicagoan named Robert Taylor. Taylor was the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett.
 
Taylor also served with Davis on another communist front, the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee, whose members masqueraded as civil-rights crusading "progressives." The two served on the board together.
 
Both Taylor and Davis would have frequently encountered another politically active Chicagoan, Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett and Frank Marshall Davis worked together on the small publicity team of the communist-controlled Packinghouse Workers Union, which Frank Marshall Davis publicly called for nationalizing. Vernon Jarrett would one day become Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law.
 
So, here we have Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, working with the literal relatives of Valerie Jarrett -- all serving together in Chicago's Communist Party circles in the 1940s.
 
And what about David Axelrod?
 
Axelrod is a native New Yorker who, in the 1970s, found himself and his political calling in Chicago, where he went to college and worked for newspapers as a political journalist. (See my March 2012 Spectator profile of David Axelrod.) There, Axelrod was mentored by the Canter family, namely David Canter. The Canter family's Soviet/communist roots were deep. David and his family had lived in Moscow just before Chicago. His father, Harry Canter, worked there as an official translator of Lenin's writings. Harry, who had been secretary of the Boston Communist Party and ran for governor of Massachusetts on the Communist Party ticket, did this as a literal employee of Stalin's government.

After that service to the Soviets, the Canter crew headed to Chicago, a hot-bed for American communists. They worked with Frank Marshall Davis in writing communist propaganda for the Packinghouse Workers Union, in teaching at the communist Abraham Lincoln School, in marching in Chicago's May Day parades, and in the pages of the Chicago Star. In fact, when Davis and his comrades sold the Chicago Star to something called the Progressive Publishing Company in September 1948, Harry Canter was one of the small group of board members doing the purchase.
 
There are several key names here. Let me sum up:
 
Frank Marshall Davis mentored Barack Obama. The Canter family mentored David Axelrod, who got Obama elected president. Vernon Jarrett's daughter-in-law is Valerie Jarrett, and Robert Taylor was Valerie Jarrett's grandfather. Jarrett is Obama's top presidential adviser. In other words, Obama's political ancestor worked with the political ancestors of Axelrod and Jarrett.
 
Oh, and they all called themselves progressives.
 
Amazing, but true. You can't make this up. The ghosts of Chicago's political past are alive and well in Washington today. Today's political family at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue can be traced back to the political family of Chicago in the 1940s. It's all in the (political) family.
 
This is the fundamental change an uninformed electorate -- thanks especially to a woefully biased media -- elected in November 2008.

All this stuff -- and more -- has been in the archive (follow links above) for years.

Perhaps Mr. Gilbert is on to something here.  News this morning is Obama's ancestory was traced to a black slave in America (on his mother's side) who had children with a white woman.  I have yet to hear of any ancestory tracing on his father's side.  Why is that?  Could it be that Frank Marshall Davis really is his father?

The writer and director of "Dreams from My Real Father"

Bob Unruh is reporting that a filmmaker whose full-length documentary, “Dreams from My Real Father,” presents a compelling case that Communist Party USA propagandist Frank Marshall Davis is Barack Obama’s biological father, is challenging the U.S. media to begin reporting the truth about the likely Democrat nominee for president in 2012.

Joel Gilbert, whose website details his research, appeared recently at the National Press Club in Washington to talk about the questions raised in his film.

“What strikes me as most disturbing is that any one of the hundreds of American journalists in this building could win the Pulitzer Prize just by writing about the evidence presented in ‘Dreams from My Real Father,’” he said.

A journalist, after all, is supposed to report the news, truthfully and fairly, he argues.

He cited the National Press Club bronze that lists the “Journalist’s Creed,” as written by Walter Williams when he founded the Missouri School of Journalism more than a century ago.

It states: “That journalists must be public trustees with the full measure of responsibility to the public. That accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism. That a single standard of truth must prevail for all.”

Pointedly, he noted the credo states “that suppression of the news is indefensible.”

“The Journalist’s Creed is like the doctor’s Hippocratic Oath, but for journalists. Imagine if all physicians chose to ignore the Hippocratic Oath? We’d all get sick. In this case, we are all becoming badly infected with Marxism,” Gilbert told WND.

He said that American journalists have been in the pocket of the Obama campaign and administration, in violation of those precepts for journalists.

“I accuse ABC, NBC, and CBS network news divisions of violating the public trust by refusing to cover my documentary film and for ignoring all the revelations about Obama’s background that other researchers have produced,” he said. “I accuse MSNBC of an intentional and often vile campaign of lies and misrepresentations to protect Barack Obama’s false narrative.”

He noted that one “leftist website-based news organization” even obtained a review copy, copied parts and put them on YouTube, and “wrote that now people don’t need to buy the film.”

“The public looks to all of the news organizations in this building, the National Press Club, for truth,” he said. “However, an astounding number, almost all of them, have all failed to live up to the Journalist’s Creed, and thus failed their responsibility to the public. Only a very few news organizations, like WND, Drudge Report, USA Survival and a handful of independent journalists like Jack Cashill, have done their jobs as journalists – with courage and honesty.”

He said his investigation shows that “Barack Obama [built] his political career upon a fairy tale.

“There was no Obama family; he is not the son of a Kenyan goat herder,” Gilbert said.

“All evidence points to a sham marriage to cover an illicit affair between Ann Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis,” he said. “All evidence indicates that Barack Obama was raised and indoctrinated by Frank Marshall Davis, a Community Party USA propagandist, during his formative years.”

Gilbert told WND that because of the “fairy tale” told by Obama, “regular American folks perceived Obama as a nice man with an inspiring family story.”

“In reality, Barack Obama has a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally hid to obscure a Marxist political foundation,” he said.

The documentary is based on two years of archival research as well as two extended visits to Hawaii in which Gilbert uncovered substantial evidence that Davis was both the biological and ideological father of the president.

“To go along with this, Obama’s accounts of his early family life have been debunked not only by myself, but also ‘mainstream’ writers like David Marannis. This means that Barack Obama’s narrative upon which he built his political career – that he was the son of a Kenyan goat herder – is false.”

In his film, Gilbert shows how Davis indoctrinated Obama with a political foundation in Marxism and an anti-white worldview.

“This is a known phenomenon in the radical left, referred to as “red diaper babies” or “hand-me-down Marxism,” he noted.

He pointed out that much of the leadership of 1960s Marxist groups such as Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground were children of Communist Party USA members, including Katherine Boudin and Jeff Jones.

President Obama’s chief campaign adviser, David Axelrod, also is a “red diaper baby,” Gilbert said.

Much of what Obama has told the American public of his childhood has been proven false, he said.

“We now know that the family did not stay together in Hawaii until 1962, when the Kenyan Barack Obama went to Harvard to begin his graduate studies as Obama claimed,” said Gilbert. “Ann Dunham took her infant son with her to Seattle a few weeks after his birth and began studies at the University of Washington, while the Kenyan Obama remained in Hawaii for another year before leaving for Harvard.”

The evidence, he said, “points to the conclusion that Ann Dunham’s relationship with the Kenyan Obama was a sham marriage designed to cover up an illicit affair with Frank Marshall Davis in which an infant was conceived. We also know that Obama was a regular visitor at Davis’s house from age 10.”

Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert also maintains.

“It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades,” he said. “To understand Obama’s plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis.”

Because almost all levels of the mainstream media are suppressing the information in “Dreams from My Real Father,” Gilbert’s distribution company is mailing a free copy of the DVD directly to hundreds of thousands of households across the United States. He said that will help stimulate national interest in “Dreams from My Real Father,” and the mainstream media will hopefully start reporting on it.

Obama’s ultimate cover-up

Cliff Kincaid says Obama biographer David Maraniss wrote an 1139-word article, “The Audacity of Doubt,” for The Washington Post on Sunday that purported to be a refutation of what some critics have been saying about the President. Maraniss focuses mostly on questions about Obama’s religion and place of birth and pretends to have the answers.

However, Maraniss ignored the fact that the critics were right four years ago when they identified communist Frank Marshall Davis as Obama’s mentor in Hawaii and the mysterious “Frank” from Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father.

Maraniss had written a 10,000-word piece for the Post in 2008, when the information could have made a difference in the campaign, ignoring this critical fact. He told me in an email that he had ignored Davis because he had somehow concluded that Davis didn’t have much of an impact on Obama.

The Maraniss piece, “Though Obama Had to Leave to Find Himself, It Is Hawaii That Made His Rise Possible,” ran in the August 22, 2008 edition of the Post.

Not content to slink away with egg on his face for ignoring the story of the century, Maraniss spent years working on a book about Obama, thinking the public would regard it as definitive. He is suffering under a delusion.

Since Maraniss wants us to believe he dwells on “facts,” here are some inconvenient facts about Davis before we get into the tawdry and highly personal side of the Obama-Davis relationship:

  • Davis was the subject of a 600-page FBI file.
  • Davis was under FBI surveillance for 19 years for his Communist Party activities.
  • Davis was on the FBI’s security index, meaning he could be arrested in the event of a national emergency.
  • Davis wrote a pornographic novel, Sex Rebel, that was autobiographical and disclosed that he had sex with children.
  • Davis was a heavy drinker and marijuana user.

It’s true that communism is not perceived as being as much of a threat as it used to be, but can you imagine what the reaction might be among the American people, even now, if they were told by the major papers and network news programs that a top Communist Party operative molded their President’s views on economic, foreign policy and cultural issues? This is the story that has to be suppressed at any cost, four years later during a critical election year.

Having ignored the story of the decisive influence that Davis exercised over Obama in his growing up years, Maraniss now goes after other writers who have been investigating Obama in order to clear up some of the lingering mysteries about him. It is apparent that Maraniss is afraid of being proven wrong again. He wants people to think his 641 page book is the ultimate truth.

Maraniss says in his Post article on Sunday that he holds many Obama critics “in contempt for the way they disregard facts and common sense and undermine the role of serious history as they concoct conspiracy theories that portray the president as dangerous, alien and less than American.” But not once in this follow-up article four years later did Maraniss mention the name of Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, or how he, Maraniss, had ignored Davis in that 10,000-word 2008 Post article.

This omission may be his strange way of conceding, without saying so, that the “critics” had gotten that part of the story right. After all, “Frank” was Davis, and Maraniss knows it.

Maraniss doesn’t name the Obama critics. But one of them is Jack Cashill, an “obsessed conspiratorialist,” in the words of Maraniss, for theorizing that Obama’s book Dreams from My Father was ghost written by Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. Maraniss calls Ayers “the former radical.”

My position all along has been that, whether Ayers wrote it or not, Obama’s name is on it, and he has to take responsibility for what is in it. That includes the cover-up regarding “Frank.” It is not unprecedented for politicians to have ghost writers, but since their names are on the book, the politicians have to take the credit or blame for what was said—or not said. Of course, if Ayers did write the book, it makes their relationship much closer than we were led to believe.

The Dreams book covers up Obama’s extensive use of illegal drugs, and here is where Maraniss truly does his homework and performs a public service. He says, in passages that are perhaps too brutally honest for pro-Obama liberals to take, that Obama was a major dope smoker, not the occasional user we were led to believe. Maraniss says Obama was a member of the “Choom Gang,” a group of heavy users of the drug.

This is important for many reasons, including that the effects of the drug are reflected in various personality disorders, and so the public is left wondering what the illegal substances may have done to Obama’s way of thinking. Obama has promoted the notion, in an interview with Rolling Stone, the rock-and-roll magazine, that marijuana has “medical benefits,” while acknowledging that federal law prohibits its use and cultivation. He has let Attorney General Eric Holder handle this one.

Cashill says that Maraniss comes across as “testy” in his new Post column because his book about Obama has not done well, and that his massive advance “will never be recouped by the publisher.” This may be the case. But he may also be testy because he realizes he missed the importance of the Frank Marshall Davis story, and that the Obama critics were right all along.

Paul Kengor points out that writers and historians always focus on the mentor, in order to explain the background, history and future policies of a major political figure like a presidential candidate—except when it came to Obama. Why?

Although Maraniss should be commended for exposing Obama as a major drug abuser, something Obama concealed from voters in 2008, the superficial treatment of Frank Marshall Davis is a major blot on Maraniss’s record. He will never be able to recover from it.

My stories about Davis have become a broken record, but it is necessary to play this record again and again because “journalists” such as Maraniss persist in their dishonest campaign to ignore his influence on the current occupant of the Oval Office. His Post article is only the latest example of his deceptive writing on this matter.

Why does he do it?

The short answer is that he thinks he can get away with it. He thinks his writing, based on the reputation of someone who writes long books about important people, can drown out all of the others who seek the truth and raise inconvenient and uncomfortable questions.

But why ignore such a critical and central fact about Obama? The answer in this case has to be that the truth is so powerful and so damaging to Obama that it has to be ignored. The lid has to be kept on this story, to the best of the ability of Maraniss and his ilk to do so. That is why the cover-up continues.

Admitting Obama was a doper is one thing; writing about his Communist mentor is something far more serious that opens a Pandora’s box.

But is the story more than that of an agent of a Moscow-funded political party having access to our President for eight years of his young life? This is where the story of Frank Marshall Davis takes a very bizarre sexual turn.

Paul Kengor’s new book, THE COMMUNIST Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, explains the Davis influence on Obama’s economic views. Rusty Weiss and I quoted Kengor in a piece we did on how Davis’s racism influenced Obama.

The other and equally disturbing area of influence is the cultural sphere. As writer Andrew Walden has noted, the term “Sex Rebel,” as Davis used it, was meant to characterize Davis’s rebellion against American society, another part of the communist revolution, which was to him a way to strike back against religion and its strictures on promiscuous sexual activity. Perversion was a central aspect of Davis’s communist identity. That’s why he wrote Sex Rebel.

We can see this facet of Davis’s Marxism reflected in Obama, at least in terms of his policies on such subjects as gay rights, gay marriage, gays in the military, and so forth. Obama’s openly gay appointee Kevin Jennings facilitated that at the Department of Education, while Leon Panetta supervises this radical transformation at the Pentagon, our last line of defense, even while he bemoans anticipated cuts to the Pentagon budget.

In the latest example of this subversion from within, Panetta’s Department of Defense issued a policy approving members of the U.S. Armed Forces to march in a “gay pride” parade while wearing their service-issued uniforms. Rep. Randy Forbes called it a “clear violation” of DoD rules and regulations that prohibit service members from wearing the uniform “during or in connection with furthering political activities.”

Many people do not know that the Communist Manifesto called for the abolition of the traditional family, in addition to the abolition of private property. “Families and the moral order stand firmly in the way of any socialist revolution,” notes conservative writer Robert Knight. “Families and religion inculcate independence and a strong set of values and personal responsibility.”

Although he ignored Davis four years ago in his lengthy article in the Post, the Maraniss book, Barack Obama: The Story, mentions Davis a few times. He admits that Davis was “under surveillance” by the FBI because of his “past associations with the Communist party.” He says Obama “later estimated that he saw Davis ‘ten to fifteen times,’” a report apparently based on an interview with Obama.

Paul Kengor notes that Obama mentioned “Frank” 22 times in Dreams.

Of course, Maraniss also acknowledges that Davis was “the Frank character” in Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, without analyzing why Obama would have wanted to conceal Frank’s complete name and identity. He also does not credit those of us who revealed “Frank” to be Davis and released his 600-page FBI file (Maraniss doesn’t even mention the FBI file).

In other passages, Maraniss simply calls Davis “the black poet,” the “aging black poet,” and the “old black poet.” So Davis’s communism takes a back seat to his “poetry.”

Maraniss does admit that Obama wrote a poem about Davis called “Pop,” with some strange lines about stains and smells on shorts. “He looks at Pop and sees something that repels him and attracts him, that he wants to run away from yet knows he must embrace,” Maraniss wrote, as if to explain what Obama was thinking and doing.

But what exactly does this mean?

Writer Jack Cashill had suggested more than two years ago that “Pop” was Davis. It was a poem, he said, that had definite “sexual overtones.”

Cashill wrote, “…there is enough talk in Sex Rebel about the taste and texture of semen to merit the suspicion that the ‘breath’ and ‘amber stain’ references in ‘Pop’ refer to the exchange of something other than whiskey, especially since the stains are on their ‘shorts,’ not on their shirts.”

The nation recoils in horror at the child predator Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State football coach protected and even facilitated by the university where he worked. Yet, the fact that Obama was under the tutelage of a pedophile for eight years continues to be a non-story.

But it gets even worse. In reviewing Kengor’s book on Davis, Cashill writes, “The one area that I wish Kengor had explored was his possible relationship with Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham.” Filmmaker Joel Gilbert has done so, with dramatic photos, in “Dreams from My Real Father.”

It is a story that even some conservatives do not want to tackle, as the presidential election approaches.

But what if it is true?

Paul Kengor was on the Levin show Thurs night (7/26/2012) towards the end (I think it starts around minutes 95) and promises to have him back on soon. It was a good interview!

The Commie's Commie

Herbert E. Meyer says 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 Barack Obama so admires:

Frank Marshall Davis was a pro-Soviet, pro-Red China, card-carrying member of Communist Party USA (CPUSA). His Communist Party card number was 47544. He did endless Soviet propaganda work in his newspaper columns, at every juncture agitating and opposing U.S. attempts to slow down Stalin and Mao in the late 1940s and early 1950s. He favored Red Army takeovers of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Central and Eastern Europe as a whole. In China, he urged America to dump the "fascist" Chiang in support of Mao's Red forces. He wanted communist takeovers in Korea and Vietnam. He was adamantly, angrily anti-NATO, anti-Marshall Plan, anti-Truman Doctrine. He argued that U.S. officials under President Harry Truman -- whom he portrayed as a fascist, racist, and imperialist -- and under secretaries of state George Marshall and Dean Acheson were handing West Germany back to the Nazis, while Stalin was pursuing "democracy" in East Germany and throughout the Communist Bloc. He portrayed America's leaders as "aching for an excuse to launch a nuclear nightmare of mass murder and extermination" against the Chinese and the Soviets -- and eager to end all civilization.

Wait, it gets better -- sorry, worse. Once again, here's Kengor's summary of our president's beloved mentor's political views:

Frank Marshall Davis:

  • Rejected and blasted Winston Churchill;
  • Vilified and targeted General Motors;
  • Advocated wealth redistribution from (in his words) greedy "corporations" to "health insurance" and "public works projects";
  • Favored taxpayer funding of universal health care;
  • Supported government stimulus and trumpeted the public sector over the private sector;
  • Constantly bashed Wall Street;
  • Dismissed traditional notions of American exceptionalism and framed American not as selflessly serving the post-World War II world but instead as selfishly flaunting its so-called "mountainous ego" and "racist-imperialist-colonialist" ambitions;
  • Warned God-and-gun-clinging Americans about huckster preachers and instead sought the political support of the "social justice" Religious Left for various causes and campaigns;
  • Perceived the Catholic Church as an obstacle to his vision for the state;
  • Confidently declared certain government actions "constitutional" or "unconstitutional";
  • Excoriated the "tentacles of big business," bankers, big oil, the "Big Boys," "excess profits," corporate fat cats and their "fat contracts," "millionaires" and "rich men," and the wealthy;
  • Attacked "GOP" tax cuts that "spare the rich" and that only "benefit millionaires";
  • Singled out the "corporation executive" for not paying his "fair" share;
  • Used slogans such as "change" and "forward."

Does this near-perfect overlay between the political views of Obamaand those of his mentor -- a card-carrying Communist whom, decades later, a rising Chicago politician would oh-so-carefully identify in Dreams from My Father only as "Frank" -- strike you as merely a coincidence? No? I didn't think so. To borrow an old Kremlin adage that Frank himself would have heard, and probably used himself, a thousand times: Comrades, there are no coincidences.

Paul Kengor is an historian -- indeed, a brilliant one -- and in The Communist, his objective is to illuminate the life of a man who powerfully influenced a future president. This is a book about Frank, not about Barack, and Kengor's recounting of Frank's professional journey from Kansas to Atlanta to Chicago -- yes, to Chicago -- and then to Hawaii, where Frank spent the rest of his long life, is riveting. It's also sympathetic, for instance as Kengor recounts the prejudice, the indignities, and sometimes the physical dangers faced by a rising black poet in our country back in the 1920s and 1930s.

Of course, it was in Hawaii that Frank and the young Obama met, probably in 1970, when Obama would have been nine years old. No one, including Kengor, can explain how Frank and Stanley Dunham, Obama's grandfather, came to know each other. But they did, and young Barack tagged along on those evenings when the two men would meet at Frank's dilapidated cottage to talk, play poker, and drink. Later, when Obama was old enough to drive but before heading off to college, he made his own visits to Frank.

Kengor isn't an investigative reporter, so he steers clear of those radioactive issues about whether Frank is really Obama's father, or about where the president was actually born and what citizenship he holds, or may have held, throughout his chaotic childhood. But -- happily for the reader -- Kengor devotes a few pages to utterly destroying the reputations of those liberal journalists and fawning Obama biographers who do claim to be investigative journalists, and who twisted themselves into pretzels to avoid noticing that Obama's mentor was a Communist.

For example, during the 2008 presidential campaign, the Associated Press ran two articles about Obama's life in Hawaii, one specifically about Frank. The AP described him to voters desperate for insight about the Democratic candidate merely as an advocate of "civil rights amid segregation" and a crusader for the U.S. Constitution. The only Frank quote the AP offered its readers -- chosen from decades of vicious, anti-American newspaper columns Frank wrote in Hawaii -- was this: "I refuse to settle for anything less than all the rights which are due me under the Constitution."

Newsweek'sJohn Meacham told readers only that Frank wrote about "civil rights and labor issues." David Remnick, who wrote for The Washington Post, who now is editor of The New Yorker, and who authored The Bridge, which to date is perhaps the most comprehensive biography of our president, managed to completely ignore Frank's communist ideology and told readers only that Frank "wrote fierce columns about the suppression of unions, conditions on the plantation, the power of oligarchic Hawaiian families, race relations." Somehow, this Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist failed to notice -- or chose to ignore -- Frank's incendiary, near-treasonous columns blasting Harry Truman and the Marshall Plan, accusing the U.S. of trying to re-Nazify Germany, and defending the Soviet Union at every turn.

The Communist is a page-turner for political junkies, but it's also first-rate history. You'll learn a great deal about the Communist Party's activities in our country during the 1930s, the 1940s, and the 1950s. These people were here, they were organized, they were undercover -- and they were determined to destroy our country.

Here's one little tidbit from the book that caught my eye, and which some enterprising journalist who doesn't want to work for The Washington Post, Newsweek, or The New Yorker might want to investigate: by 1948, Frank had achieved considerable success in his adopted city of Chicago.

Frank adored Chicago. He had thrived there, was respected, and was proud of the prestige he had acquired. He had come into his own, establishing himself professionally, personally, politically, culturally. Racially, he was comfortable there, and nothing mattered to Frank like race. ... He was not only read there, but listened to -- literally. He hosted a nightly jazz program on WJJD, spinning records for a city that was a global mecca for this uniquely American (and African-American) music. He emceed events, both musical and political. He taught.

So why, to the utter stupefaction of everyone he knew in Chicago, did Frank announce in September 1948 that he was leaving Chicago and heading for Hawaii? It made no sense whatsoever, and it wasn't because Frank had grown weary of those cold Chicago winters. Kengor's narrative leaves little room for doubt: Frank was sent to Hawaii by the Communist Party, because the Party was building its base there and had considerable room to maneuver because at that time, Hawaii hadn't yet become a state.

Now, fast-forward to 1960. Stanley and Madelyn Dunham were living in Seattle with their teenage daughter, Stanley Ann, who later would give birth to our 44th president. Stanley's career wasn't going anywhere, but Madelyn had a good-paying job at a local bank. Suddenly -- inexplicably -- Madelyn quits her job, and the Dunhams hop it to Hawaii. To date, no journalist or Obama biographer has provided an explanation for this move. I haven't got one, either. But as they used to say in Moscow: Comrades, there are no coincidences.

Herbert E. Meyer served during the Reagan administration as special assistant to the director of Central Intelligence and vice chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council.

David Maraniss and Obama's Communist mentor

Paul Kengor says it's interesting that not only does Barack Obama need continued vetting, but so do his biographers.  The culprit is the same: the liberal bias that dutifully protects Obama like white knights guarding the king's castle, shamelessly tossing journalistic objectivity right out the window.  As Sean Hannity likes to say, when it comes to Obama's background, it has fallen to us conservatives to do the job that the mainstream "Obama-mania media" plainly refuses to do.
 
The most recent Obama biography getting a vetting by conservatives is David Maraniss' Barack Obama, the Story.  Here at American Thinker, Jack Cashill has intrepidly taken up the charge, thereby provoking the wrath of the nation's "journalists" for daring to flag the contradictions in their reporting.  In his most recent post, Cashill looked at several Maraniss passages related to Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.  He quoted my forthcoming book on Davis, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, the Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor.  I had sent Cashill a galley copy of my book, and he has done his homework well, juxtaposing my research on Davis with that of Maraniss.  I'd like to here follow up.
 
Let me begin by sincerely expressing my admiration for David Maraniss.  He really is a good journalist -- one of the best, in my view.  He's an impeccably fair liberal.  His work on Bill Clinton in the 1990s was superb.  I used his Clinton biography, First in His Class, in one of my courses at Grove City College.  His other books are likewise excellent, including his biographies of Vince Lombardi and Roberto Clemente, a childhood hero of mine (I'm a Pittsburgh native).  Among these, his honesty in covering Bill Clinton was refreshing.  He was not afraid to address elephants in the living room of the Clinton story.  He is, however, clearly afraid to address the elephant in the living room of the Obama story -- namely, Obama's political radicalism, and particularly a young Obama's obvious interest in communism in the late 1970s and early 1980s, precisely when he knew Frank Marshall Davis.
 
For the record, Frank Marshall Davis was introduced to Obama by Obama's grandfather, Stanley Dunham.  Dunham introduced his grandson to Davis in the 1970s -- by one (authoritative) account as early as 1970.  He did so for the purpose of mentoring.  And what a mentor he chose: Davis had been a literal card-carrying member of Communist Party USA (CPUSA).  I have the FBI pages that list Davis's CPUSA number, which was 47544.  I reprint the FBI pages in the appendix of my book.  Davis did outrageous pro-Soviet propaganda work for CPUSA organs like the Chicago Star and the Honolulu Record.  His writings unerringly parroted the Soviet line.  Like other CPUSA members, he was a loyal Soviet patriot.
 
The liberal Obama biographers who bother to acknowledge Davis frame him as an innocent victim of McCarthyism.  That's nonsense.  McCarthy never came anywhere near Davis.  No, it was anti-communist Democrats who pursued Davis, at least in part because Davis's chief target was Democratic President Harry Truman, the man opposing Joe Stalin.  Davis's pro-Soviet/communist activities were first flagged in a 1944 report by the Democrat-run House Committee on Un-American Activities.  When he was finally called to Washington to testify for those activities, it was by the Democrat-run Senate Judiciary Committee.  It was the Democratic Senate that, in a 1957 report (tellingly) titled "Scope of Soviet Activity in the United States," stated categorically that Davis was "an identified member of the Communist Party."
 
And this, ladies and gentlemen, was a man who would go on to mentor the current president of the United States of America.
 
So, how does David Maraniss deal with Frank Marshall Davis?  I've been eagerly awaiting his biography to get that answer.  I was not optimistic.  Prior to the biography, Maraniss in August 2008 had written a 10,000-word profile of Obama's Hawaii years for the Washington Post, so lengthy that it prints 17 pages in the web version.  And yet, somehow, even with all those words, and seemingly no space limitations by the Post, Maraniss managed to avoid a single mention of Frank Marshall Davis.  Yep, not one.
 
That, of course, was a slight against Davis that Obama himself could not do.  In Dreams from My Father, Obama mentions "Frank" by name 22 times (and dozens more times via pronouns and other forms of reference) over the course of thousands of words and through literally every section of his memoirs.
 
When Maraniss was asked about his slight of Davis by researcher Cliff Kincaid, who has posted more on Davis than anyone else, Maraniss, befitting his good character, had the courtesy to respond.  Unfortunately, he lamely told Kincaid that he believed that the role of Davis had been "hyped," including "by Obama himself."
 
Can you imagine?  Even when the subject himself -- Obama -- acknowledges Davis, liberal journalists do back-flips to avoid him.  Even Obama's own words and testimony on Davis's influence are dismissed by reporters who do not want to touch this unappealing subject, this latest skeleton in Obama's closet.
 
And so, when Maraniss's new book was recently released, I wasn't hopeful that it would shed any light on Frank Marshall Davis at all, even as I took a quick glance at the number of pages -- 641.  When I went to the index, I was pleased to find that Maraniss did better than I expected.  Davis is listed in the index under Bette Davis (Obama's grandmother was a fan).  He mentions Davis on eight pages, slightly more than the five pages where Bette Davis is mentioned.
 
And what does Maraniss say about Frank Marshall Davis?
 
Well, I expected very little.  With those low expectations, however, I was pleased with some of what I got -- that which was there.  There was the bad, but also the good.  Indeed, Maraniss's reporting on Davis can be divided into two categories: understatement (the bad) and notable new information (the good).
 
First, the understatement: Maraniss introduces Davis on page 270, describing him as a "black journalist, poet, civil right activist, political leftist, jazz expert, and self-described 'confirmed non-conformist' who wore a gold earring in his pierced right ear and had been under surveillance by the Honolulu bureau of the FBI because of his associations with the Communist Party."  All of this is accurate, and Maraniss, to his credit, at least mentions the CPUSA "associations."  In that respect, Maraniss does a better job than the likes of David Remnick, whose treatment of Davis was terrible.  (In The Communist, I detail Remnick's sins of omission at length.)
 
Nonetheless, Maraniss completely understates and ignores Davis's communist work.  Davis, after all, didn't merely have CPUSA associations, but was an actual party member.  More than that, he did outrageous pro-Soviet, pro-Stalin propaganda work, and he utterly demonized icons ranging from Harry Truman and George Marshall to Winston Churchill.
 
Moreover, Maraniss describes Davis happily as "one of the most colorful figures in Honolulu," who "became a character in Obama's memoir," a character who allowed Obama to "accentuate his journey toward blackness" (pages 270 and 305).
 
The word "mentor" isn't used by Maraniss, even as Maraniss acknowledges that Davis was connected to Obama by Obama's grandfather, Stan (for the purpose of mentoring).
 
Alas, that's where Maraniss begins to provide some worthwhile new information.  He reports that the first contact with Davis by the Obama family came from Stanley Dunham's brother, Ralph Dunham, who met Davis when he was "in Honolulu on a working vacation for the U.S. Office of Education."  That's something I never knew, and want to know more.  Maraniss doesn't elaborate, nor does he cite his source.
 
Next, Maraniss includes some significant new material on Frank Marshall Davis, which I wish I had prior to when my book on Davis went to press.
 
Most prominent, Maraniss writes that "Obama later estimated that he saw Davis 'ten to fifteen times'" during their years together in Hawaii.  Again, Maraniss doesn't provide his source, but I'm assuming the source is Obama himself, whom Maraniss interviewed for his book.  I haven't seen that figure cited anywhere else.  Already, in my early interviews for my book before its official release, I've been asked how often Obama met with Davis.  My answer has been that I didn't know, and that I could document only the occasions that Obama documented in Dreams from My Father.
 
Maraniss, however, has made clear that they met a good number of times.  In fact, 10 to 15 times is notable, especially given the nature and duration of these one-on-one meetings -- often long late-night evenings together.  (Some people cite mentors whom they've barely met or not even met at all.)  In reality, I bet the number of Obama-Davis meetings is actually greater still, given that Obama would be expected to understate Davis's influence.  Bear in mind that in Dreams from My Father, Obama was so sensitive about Davis that he never once divulged his full name anywhere in the book.
 
In my book on Davis, I speculate on specific areas of politics and policy where Davis might have influenced Obama, from redistribution of wealth to nationalizing health care to General Motors (plus much more).  In his memoirs, Obama doesn't dare go into any of that.  But such lessons at the knee of the extremely political and outspoken Davis could have easily occurred at any of these many meetings.
 
There's more:
 
Maraniss also notes that when Obama in Dreams from My Father said that Davis must have been "pushing eighty" when they first met, this is another case of Obama's now-infamous "literary license."  Indeed it is.  Davis would have known Obama from his mid- to late 60s into his mid-70s, when Davis was still a political radical and still a member of at least one of the worst communist front-groups, the American Committee for Protection of the Foreign Born.
 
And finally, another crucial piece of information provided by Maraniss is his confirmation that Frank Marshall Davis became "a subject of some of his [Obama's] teenage poetry."  That's a significant fact.  As Jack Cashill has noted in his book Deconstructing Obama, and as I detail in my book, Obama in 1981 at Occidental College published a poem called "Pop."  That fact was reported by Rebecca Mead in The New Yorker.  Mead, however, argued that the subject, "Pop," was Obama's grandfather, Stan.  To the contrary, as a careful read of the poem shows, "Pop" was clearly Frank Marshall Davis.  I will not quote the poem here, but the fact that it was Davis, and given its warm details about Davis, clearly indicates not merely Davis's mentorship but his deep, abiding influence on Obama's life.
 
Maraniss acknowledges that "Pop" is Davis (pages 382-4).  More than that, he adds a further confirming detail that I didn't know: "The younger hippies who lived around Davis and acquaintances in the bars on Smith Street often called him Pop or Pops."
 
Ah, there you go.  Case closed.  Obama's enigmatic "Pop" is Frank Marshall Davis.  That's very revealing.
 
More than that, Maraniss says that Obama wrote additional poetry about his poet-mentor.  Though unclear, he seems to suggest (pages 317 and 363) that one of the additional poems was a piece titled "An Old Man," written by Obama for the Punahou Bulletin, his high school alumni magazine, and 20 years after his graduation.  This would again bespeak Davis's deep impact on Obama, even as, ironically, and amazingly, Maraniss himself never explicitly concedes that impact.
 
And therein is the central liability in David Maraniss's treatment of Frank Marshall Davis, even given the noteworthy new material he provided.  His failures with Davis are symptomatic of his overall failure to deal with Obama's politically radical past.  In this, unfortunately, Maraniss is not alone.  He is yet another liberal Obama biographer who has left the vetting to us conservatives -- so we can be attacked as Neanderthal McCarthyites, or worse.  So be it.  Someone needs to do the mainstream media's job.

July 4th with Obama’s Communist mentor

Dr. Paul Kengor says 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 among locals as the "RedStar." Davis was not only a columnist but the founding editor-in-chief. Joining him in the newspaper was a fascinating cast of characters, from literal Soviet agents to the likes of Senator Claude "Red" Pepper, who during his time at the Starwas championing a bill to nationalize healthcare in the United States, a bill written by his chief of staff, Charles Kramer, who we now know was a Soviet agent. Frank Marshall Davis himself called for taxpayer-subsidized "universal healthcare."

In fact, Davis and his Star comrades would urge many things that sound eerily similar to Barack Obama’s presidency today. They blasted big business, Wall Street, big banks, big oil, "profits," "millionaires" and corporate executives for not paying their "fair" share. They urged that wealth be redistributed to "health insurance" and "public works projects." They targeted General Motors for government action. They despised anti-communists like Winston Churchill and singled out the Catholic Church as an obstacle to their vision for the state. And as they did, Davis and his comrades called themselves "progressives."

Such policy initiatives would populate the Star throughout Frank Marshall Davis’s editorship. In that first issue, however, intended to coincide with the commemoration of America’s birthday, Davis launched the newspaper with a special column titled, "Those Radicals of ’76."
 
The Star’s launch around the July 4 holiday was no coincidence, as Davis sought to identify the Star with the Stars & Stripes; that is, with the principles of the American Founders. It would be a "modern Declaration of Independence" by new "spiritual descendants … of 1776."
 
"It seems to me," Frank Marshall Davis wrote, "the time has come for a new Declaration of Independence, to be implemented at the polls by the plain people such as you and I, which will remove the chains forged about us by the big money boys and their mouthpieces."
 
Applying the language of the Marxist dialectic (without naming Marx), Davis noted that all radicals of "past and present" "anticipate the logical course of history and lead humanity on its way." "So it was in 1776; so it is today." Like "this nation’s forefathers in the 18th century," exhorted Davis, it was time to "force into effect a modern Declaration of Independence."
 
This invocation of the American Founding by Davis was absurd, as nothing was further from the Founding than communism. Nonetheless, it was a common tactic by American communists, and has been likewise for the progressive movement for 100 years. Of course, Barack Obama himself invokes the Founding, when it suits his purposes.
 
And speaking of Obama, Frank Marshall Davis, in this column launching his newspaper and his communist cause, preached a very Obama-like mantra of "change." Davis averred: "If history teaches us anything, it teaches that any fundamental change advancing society is spearheaded by strong radicals."
 
Davis himself imparted this to Obama. As reported by Dr. Kathryn Takara, a University of Hawaii professor who was personally close to Frank Marshall Davis and a Davis biographer, Davis "nurtured a sense of possibility" in Obama, including "a sense of believing that change can happen."
 
Think of the irony and relevance of this today, as Barack Obama, mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, seeks "fundamental change" in advancing American society in a direction advocated by him and his strong radicals. This is the "sense of possibility" that Obama has imparted to his fellow progressives.
 
Our mentors matter. Shame on the media for not vetting Obama and looking into mentors like Frank Marshall Davis. We’re paying the consequences now, this July 4, 2012, 66 years after Frank Marshall Davis, another "change agent," launched his personal revolution, one today carried in the person of Barack Obama, and projected upon all of us.

Frank Marshall Davis in the archive . . .

Burt Prelutsky says when it comes to inevitabilities, people always refer to death and taxes -- but there’s a third item that’s even more of a sure thing. I’m referring to the goofiness of the left. Death is inevitable, but not always predictable. After all, people die at all ages and under diverse circumstances. In much the same way, taxes are always going to be around, but not everyone pays the same ones or at the same rate.

However, when it comes to the chowderheads who take pride in identifying themselves as liberals, progressives, statists, socialists or just plain Democrats, as surely as the sun will rise in the east, you can bet the farm that before it sets in the west, any number of these boobs will have you shaking your head and wondering if they’re being serious or just going for the cheap laugh.
 
For instance, Obama’s EPA, otherwise known as America’s storm troopers, have begun forcing refineries to blend 8.6 million gallons of something called cellulosic biofuel, made from wood and non-edible plant life, into their oil. I’m not sure what good it’s supposed to do, but I’m guessing it’s the chemical equivalent of Hamburger Helper. If you’re wondering why, if I don’t know its purpose, I object to the EPA’s fining companies that don’t follow orders like good little Nazis, it’s because there is no such product! Nobody is bothering to manufacture it, as the EPA is well aware, but it’s just another way for the dictatorial bureaucrats to flex their muscles and another way for the Obama White House to levy taxes by calling them fines.
 
As some of you know, I have occasionally taken a page out of the liberal handbook. Just as they were always trying to psychoanalyze George W. Bush, pretending that everything from invading Iraq to picking out his pajamas was pre-determined by his dysfunctional relationship with his dad, I try to return the favor by doing the same to Obama.
 
It only seems reasonable. For one thing, I look something like Sigmund Freud. For another, Obama’s early years were like the plot of a Dickens novel. That is, if he had ever thought to set one of his bleak masterpieces in Kenya, Indonesia and Hawaii.
 
After all, being dumped by one’s father, stepfather and mother, all within the first decade of one’s life, isn’t likely to lead to anything resembling a normal human being. If you add biracial parents and being left in the care of white, left-wing, grandparents to the mix, the miracle is that his background only involves eating dogs, not people.
 
Recently, I got around to researching Frank Marshall Davis, who was apparently young Barack’s mentor in Hawaii. Davis, a black man, was an avowed Communist, a bisexual and a confessed child rapist. Thinking himself a writer, he dabbled in bad poetry and also, under the pseudonym Bob Greene, wrote the pornographic "Sex Rebel: Black (Memoirs of a Gash Gourmet)."
 
From the age of 10 to 17, when Obama went off to college on the mainland, he admits spending a great deal of time with Davis, often drinking whisky and composing dirty limericks.
 
One can’t help wondering what, besides left-wing polemics and hatred of the white race, young impressionable Barack learned at the knee of his perverted Uncle Frank.
 
For the longest time, I used to receive, on average, three messages a week from people in Nigeria. Although I had never been to Africa and never met any of these people, they were constantly offering to wire me millions of dollars. Sometimes they told me that someone had died and left it to me. Other times, they told me I had won grand prize in a lottery.

Sometimes it was a widow who needed my assistance to get the money out of Nigeria, and was willing to share her windfall with me. Those were the emails that touched me the most because who doesn’t want to help out a widow in her time of need? But I would write back and explain that I didn’t want to get involved in anything that smacked of hanky-panky because it might mean jeopardizing my chances of collecting the $35,000,000 I had apparently won in a lottery I hadn’t even entered. But, displaying the empathy for which I’m famous, I’d let her know that I’d send her a little something as soon as my check arrived.
 
Still, all of that pales in comparison to the latest bit of audacity from Team Obama. It seems that David Axelrod or one of his flying monkeys has come up with something called the Obama Event Registry. Brides-to-be are being told to urge their friends and relatives not to foolishly squander their money on wedding gifts. Even if she has romantic stars in her eyes, the little gal is supposed to prove she has her feet on the ground by instructing them to donate the money, instead, to Obama’s re-election campaign.
 
The next thing you know, Obama will be asking Americans to start growing victory gardens and collecting scrap metal to help him win World War III against Romney.
 
There is also a rumor going around that Obama is looking into changing the inscription at the base of the Statue of Liberty from, "Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free …" to "Give me your gravy boats, your waffle irons and your toaster ovens, to help me get re-elected."
 
I have finally reached the point where even I’m beginning to doubt that Obama comes from Kenya.
 
My money is now on Nigeria.
