Barack Obama Was a Member of Radical Left New Party

Although the liberal media would like us to think it's relevant that Sarah Palin's husband once belonged to the Alaska Independence Party, it remains to be seen whether it will show any interest in recent revelations that Barack Obama — who unlike Todd Palin is running for office — was a member of the ultra-left New Party. From Politically Drunk on Power:

After allegations surfaced in early summer over the 'New Party's' endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists of America claimed that Obama was never a member of either organization. The DSA and 'New Party' then systematically attempted to cover up any ties between Obama and the Socialist Organizations. However, it now appears that Barack Obama was indeed a certified and acknowledged member of the DSA's New Party.
On Tuesday, I discovered a web page that had been scrubbed from the New Party's website. The web page which was published in October 1996, was an internet newsletter update on that years congressional races. Although the web page was deleted from the New Party's website, the non-profit Internet Archive Organization had archived the page.

From the New Party's October 1996 Update:

Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).

More, from a November 1996 Progressive Populist article:

New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago.

From a 1996 DSA newsletter, under the heading of New Party Update:

[T]he NP's '96 Political Program has been enormously successful with 3 of 4 endorsed candidates winning electoral primaries. All four candidates attended the NP membership meeting on April 11th to express their gratitude. […] Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.

The DSA and its New Party were socialist in the same sense as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics — i.e., they were communists, reviled as extreme even by the Green Party. From American Thinker:

The New Party was a radical left organization, established in 1992, to amalgamate far left groups and push the United States into socialism by forcing the Democratic Party to the left. It was an attempt to regroup the forces on the left in a new strategy to take power, burrowing from within.

That sounds like the Obama/Ayers strategy, all right.

Now the New Party has joined the huge crowd under Obama's bus. There are enough skeletons under there already to keep journalists busy for years, should they ever develop a sense of curiosity.

Obama is a socialist/marxist? Wow! Really? No kidding?

Now if he was a member of the New Black Panther Party, that would be news! Those guys are scary beyond belief.

Journalists are curious, they're just curious about the wrong things. They care what Todd Palin's party affiliation is or used to be, about Sarah's daughter having a child out of wedlock, and whether McCain wears boxers or briefs. What they should be curious about is what Obama's core beliefs are, based not on what he says (which changes with the tides) but on his actions. He hangs out with radical left groups (or "used to". Uh huh). He attends church services led by an openly anti-white preacher that rails against the evilness of America (or "used to", until it became inconvenient). His political career was launched by an unrepentant domestic terrorist. He has openly admitted that he wants the government to take over health care, and to jack taxes through the roof. In the middle of an economic crisis, he wants to send $800 billion to Africa for... what reason I can't fathom. He is endorsed by the likes of Hamas and other groups, foreign and domestic, that hate the United States. Reporters always need column-inches, and in this short list there are potentially hundreds of column-inches worth of material, should they care to dig a little bit. They might say that dirt on Obama isn't "what people want to read/hear", but they might be surprised - people like to know what they are voting for come election day, good, bad, and otherwise. That the entire populace doesn't think like a left-leaning journalist would also be a shock to most of them and would alter their whole world view, were they capable of such a thing.

I believe that come election day, the Dems and their enablers in the media are in for quite the surprise. The polls show Obama leading, but I don't buy it. I think come election day people that have been saying they are for Obama (because it's the trendy thing to say) will vote their conscience, and in their conscience most people are not socialists (never mind what the media tells you). It will be close, and the rampant voter fraud from the left will make it even closer, but I think McCain will pull this out in the end. That doesn't mean we aren't screwed, just less screwed than we would be. We can survive four years of McCain (I don't think he would run again). We might even survive four years of Obama, but eight years of that would hurt us real bad.

New Mantra if Obama steals the election for 2012:

"Save Us Sarah Palin"

The only real question is their video? If their is it might get a little coverage.

The New Party is defunct and was never anything more than an appendage of the Democratic Party. Nothing there we didnt already know.

Its going to take a major skeleton in his closet to defeat him. The market collapse all but insures it, unfortunately.

Hopefully there is something hidden that will be sprung in the final week before the vote. If not? I never thought Id say I wish that Hillary Clinton was running against McCain. Even Clinton would be better than Obamessiah.

Wow. I hope McCain finds out about this.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at October 9, 2008 10:40 AM

Why? So he can NOT talk about it at the next debate?

I don't know why bloggers are wasting time with this. These kinds of associations are a positive for liberals and the professionally-stupid, and Independents generally won't get a clue in any case.

McCain is down 10 points (Gallup). The only possibility is to hit BO on his wretched economic policies with the hope that it might alert small business owners and employees in large companies taken in by BO's con job.

Even so, probably too little to late. We wouldn't be anywhere near the current financial disaster if Steve Forbes had been elected.

What if Barack Obama is almost as
intelligent as they think he is? In the case that he is not an advocate for American Black Culture, then I have to consider that he
is just using the American Black culture. Just as the media thinks it is using Obama to
further its agenda of social engineering and vague liberal/socialist
anti Republic aims, he is also using them. The media has consistently
avoided investigating or reporting anything of substance about Obama and his views or history. Instead the media has treated him like a
favorite rock star and hung on his mantra of meaningless almost chant
like rantings as though they were some kind of brilliant lyrics. All
investigative power is spent on anybody who would oppose him.

One has to wonder if he is actually a Manchurian candidate. He may
actually have an agenda of destroying our country. This may be to
give himself absolute power (antichrist like power) or to further some
hidden Islamic aim that sees the establishment of Islam over the
entire world. Michelle Obama let the cat out of the bag once or twice
when she let it be known how much she hated America. Certainly Rev.
Wright showed how much he hated America--and some of this was beyond
American Black Culture. The problem is that this cat was actually a
saber-toothed tiger and it was necessary to stuff that pussycat back
into the bag no matter what the cost. His allies quickly closed
around him, and he was able to pull it off. He had to reject his
minister and his church and get his wife to shutup (a favor to

So we have an intellectual elite with their own agenda, an American
Black Culture with its agenda, a dying media with its agenda, a
failing education system with its agenda, and a corrupt-beyond-belief
Democratic party (including a senate and congress that have no more
sense of statesmanship than a wooden pull toy) with its own agenda.
Each of these think that they are using Barack Obama. One must
remember that there were several of the elite in Germany in the
twenties and thirties before W W II who thought they were using Adolf

If this alliance that has backed Obama knew even a little history,
they would know that a Hitler or Obama would destroy them first.
Their immediate destruction is necessary as soon as it can be
accomplished. A Hitler or Obama always continue to need the doers and
makers long after these people who supported them are dead or in concentration camps.
