Note: See update below for even more information….
Some interesting information has surfaced today which cements what many of us already suspected about Barack Obama. For starters, Obama hasn’t always been a loyal member of the Democratic Party, and new information out now shows quite the contrary.
In 1996, during his Illinois state senate run, Barack Obama was a member of a radical socialist organization called the Chicago New Party, a group of hardcore left-wing socialists bent on infiltrating the Democratic Party with their ultra-socialist candidates.
One of their newest, most promising candidates in 1996 was none other than the now well-known Barack Obama, currently running for President of the United States of America.
These claims aren’t baseless or even a stretch, rather there are many direct links between Obama and these radical factions which I will explore below. First though, a little background on the Chicago New Party and the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America.
The WikiPedia, for what it’s worth, explains the New Party in this manner:
Left-wing critics of the New Party, such as supporters of the Green Party, argued that the New Party was merely a pressure group on the fringes of the Democratic Party, rather than a genuinely new political party. New Party leaders argued that classic third-party strategies were doomed to failure, but that the Democratic Party was too entrenched and undemocratic to be a useful institution for “small-d democrats” either, even if they could succeed in taking it over, and so a new kind of organization was needed.
While the New Party itself was not a legitimate party, what is scarier is that New Party proponents and supporters wanted to infiltrate the Democratic Party to move it towards socialism since they believed it was too entrenched in corporate interests.
What we’re seeing today with Barack Obama running for President as a Democrat is the culmination of the New Party’s ultimate plan, to install radical left-wing socialists into prominent offices under the guise of the Democratic Party. Barack Obama is the textbook plan the Chicago New Party radicals have been waiting for.
Take this directly from the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America website which congratulates Barack Obama on his primary victory while running for the Illinois State Senate in 1996:
Secondly, the 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. Danny Davis, winner in the 7th Congressional District, invited NPers to join his Campaign Steering Committee. Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in 7th Subcircuit Court, explained that due to the NP she was able to network and get experienced advice from progressives like Davis. Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.
Check the link above for verification, the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America party spoke very highly of their new golden boy. They even quote Obama as asking for other New Party members (NPers as stated in the blurb) to join his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration. Sounds familiar, ACORN anyone? Barack Obama ran for the Illinois state senate, registered as a Democrat of course, but he was running as a closet socialist New Party member with the intent on moving the Democratic Party to the left from within, not running as a third-party candidate. This is irrefutable.
More evidence –
The New Zeal blog did all Americans a service by digging up the Chicago New Party’s old newsletters from 1996. Here is where the plot thickens even more. Here is the front page of their 1996 newsletter scanned:
Here is a close-up on this front page:
Here’s the ultra-close-up of that front page, discussing members of the Chicago New Party, such as Barack Obama, and their victories in their respective primaries:
Let me re-quote it just for impact:
New Party members won three other primaries this spring in Chicago: Barack Obama (State Senate), Michael Chandler (Democratic Party Committee) and Patricia Martin (Cook County judiciary).
The New Party was championing Barack Obama as their new golden boy running for the Illinois State Senate, they even gloated about him in their newsletter as a New Party member winning a primary.
Further evidence, if you had any remaining doubt, here is a scan of the New Party’s 1996 newsletter from page 2 scanned:
See that gentleman on the right? That’s Barack Obama on the right side posing with his other New Party friends and relishing their victories on their road to turn the Democratic Party toward radical socialism.
The Chicago Democratic Socialists of America make no bones about their intentions, they openly discuss their desire to install socialist politicians within the Democratic Party with the hopes of turning America away from capitalism.
Here’s a direct quote from the front page of the DSA:
Our mission is to establish democratic socialism as a political force in the United States and around the world by training and mobilizing socialist activists to participate in a vibrant and diverse socialist organization at both the local and the national level. DSA both educates the public about democratic socialist values and policies and builds progressive coalitions to win victories that move the U.S. and the world toward social democracy.
Barack Obama’s old political friends in Chicago, the same people who endorsed him and launched his career, yearn to instill socialist ideals in politics and bring the Democratic Party to the left, where they believe it belongs.
The other group closely associated with the Chicago New Party was ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Of course, as we know, Barack Obama worked for ACORN, volunteering his time to train ACORN staffers on how to register voters. ACORN is now under investigation in 13 states for voter fraud after Barack Obama’s campaign paid them $800,000 to register voters during the primary season.
Need more proof of Barack Obama’s hidden socialist intentions? Listen to the audio in this video, recorded in 1995, in which Obama trashes the United States as a racist nation where whites constantly subjugate blacks:
Note how the video cuts back and forth from 1995 to present day statements so you can see his socialist views on wealth redistribution have not changed during the past 12 years. In 1995, Obama said reparations should take the form of taxing wealthy “white” professionals and redistribute it to “inner city” schools. Earlier this year at a debate during the Democratic Primary, Obama made the same argument that he believes reparations should take the form of investing in education.
OBAMA: And I really want to emphasize the word responsibility. I think that, uh, whether you are a white executive living out in the suburbs who doesn’t want to pay taxes to inner city children, uh, to — for them to go to school.
Because I think of the problems that African-Americans face in this country, we tend to have a sanitized view in the African-American community about what is going on in Africa. And the truth of the matter is is that many of the problems that Africa faces, whether it’s poverty, uh, or political suppression, uh, or ethnic conflict, uh, is just as prominent there and can’t all be blamed on, uh, the effects of colonialism. What it can be blamed on is some of the common factors that affect Bosnia or, uh, Los Angeles or, uh, all kinds of places on this earth, and that is the tendency for one group to try to suppress another group in the interests of power or greed or, uh, resources or what have you.
The media, for all their time and money, have done every single American a disservice during this election season. We have here Barack Obama, a radical socialist who, in his own words, discusses his belief that increasing taxes on the wealthy is the way he will force America to pay reparations to African-Americans.
Furthermore, Barack Obama went out of his way to be a member of the Chicago New Party, a group of like-minded socialists who could launch his political career.
A short list summarizing Barack Obama’s affiliations and membership in the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) party:
- Barack Obama attended and participated in meetings of the Chicago New Party and the Chicago DSA, the local affiliate of the Democratic Socialists of America.
- Barack Obama sought the endorsement of the Chicago DSA which by the party’s Political Committee as well as Mr. Obama’s signature on contract promising “a visible and active relationship with the NP.”
- Barack Obama actively used the endorsement from the Chicago DSA.
- Barack Obama won his DSA-endorsed and -backed campaign to secure his seat in the Illinois State Senate.
- Barack Obama continued his involvement with the Chicago DSA — including directly asking the group to join “his task forces on voter education and voter registeration” — and received their endorsements in subsequent campaigns.
The bottom line here is something that many Barack Obama supporters will not want to read or even believe could be possible. Barack Obama is a closet radical socialist who ran, in 1996, as Democratic with a membership in the Chicago New Party.
The goal: For the radical socialist Chicago New Party to install socialist politicians into prominent positions under the mask of the Democratic Party.
The man: Barack Obama was an active member in the Chicago New Party, as evidenced above by the party newsletters calling him a member and congratulating on his win.
The conclusion: The radical socialist Chicago New Party is now getting it’s wishes since Barack Obama is masquerading under the Democratic Party while running for President.
I just did, in about 30 minutes, what the entire mainstream media complex hasn’t done for two years.
My fellow Americans, there is still time to save American’s capitalist freedom for future generations by voting against Barack Obama on November 4th. Do you want to wake up on November 5th and find out you just voted for a radical socialist who’s been masquerading as a common Democrat?
If you vote for Barack Obama, you will be responsible for fulfilling the plans of the Chicago New Party by sending a radical, anti-capitalist, pro-socialist politician to the White House. I implore you to vote for McCain this year and save your vote for 2012 to vote for a real Democrat, not Barack Obama the Chicago New Party socialist.
Just remember, Barack Obama is one man, however, he will have to appoint over 1,100 people to various government positions the day he walks into the White House, who do you think he’ll be appointing? My guess is a group of anti-American socialists so radical you won’t even be able to recognize the government in a couple years. How do I know this? Just look at all the radical socialists he owes favors to for starting his political career in Chicago.
Barack Obama is a proponent of socialist policies such as the redistribution of wealth. That is, taking money from people who are successful and giving it to people who don’t pay taxes. If you are even remotely successful in life, Barack Obama wants to pick your pocket and redistribute to someone who makes less money, that is the ultimate Chicago New Party goal. What’s more, as seen in the above video, Barack Obama wants to implement these socialist policies with a racial tinge of reparations.
I for one will not be a part of the dismantling of America’s free market capitalism, I hope you won’t be either.
Due to the popularity and importance of this article, I have continued digging and found even more alarming information concerning Barack Obama’s direct connection to, and endorsement of, the radical socialist ideas professed by the Chicago New Party and the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America.
Here is video of Barack Obama standing with, and endorsing rabid Chicago New Party member Danny K. Davis. Obama makes it a point to say that he’s supporting Davis because, quote, “he shares our values”. This appearance by Barack Obama was during his run for the United States Senate in 2004:
Obama’s version of giving everyone a “piece” of the American dream is to take someone’s existing “piece” and redistribute to someone else who he believes more fairly deserves it.
The page on the Chicago New Party website which discusses Davis has been removed, however, luckily the cached copy is available in the Internet Archive, seen here:
On March 19, Danny Davis won the Democratic Primary for Congress in Chicago’s 7th Congressional District (West Side), and won the general election in November, 1996. Why is this particularly interesting to the New Party? Because Davis became the first New Party member elected to the U.S. Congress.
“I’m proud to be the first New Party member in the House of Representatives. Now we need to build a nationwide progressive-populist political organization which can aggressively fight back against those who are driving American politics in an anti-democratic direction.”
So just what are these “shared values” which are common between Danny Davis, Barack Obama, and other Chicago New Party members? I’ll let the New Party website explain them.
The most alarming, blatantly socialist aspect of the Chicago New Party’s platform is their “Starting Gate” welfare reform program. Welfare reform? We’ve heard that before, but this is “reform” like you’ve never even imagined. Here is the description from the New Party website which is now archived:
American commitments to equal opportunity should be upheld with the resources to make them real. We favor universal access to quality health care, education, and housing for all children – a program of “starting gate” equality that will tend to equalize chances before people enter the labor force. For adults, we believe most social benefits should be universal – like Social Security is now – but taxed progressively based on private income. The result would be fairer and more fiscally stable.
So what does Barack Obama and his Chicago New Party socialist friends mean? It’s very clear, they want to redistribute wealth from successful Americans in order to provide “free,” universal everything programs to many Americans who don’t even pay taxes.
This line here should make your skin crawl: “but taxed progressively based on private income”
As such, the Chicago New Party believes in extreme progressive taxation, taxing successful Americans the most in order to pay for universal health insurance, universal housing, and expanding universal retirement similar to the way Social Security, the failing system, now functions.
Barack Obama’s version of welfare reform is not trying to minimize welfare, it’s expanding it to include every possible service the government can provide, paid for by successful Americans by increasing their taxes through an extreme progressive tax.
If this doesn’t give you concern, perhaps this next bit of information will.
As of now in 2008, the Chicago New Party is largely inactive. Of course, these people didn’t all go away, they simply formed a new party under a new name which didn’t have the stigma attached to it that the Chicago New Party once had.
If you visit the current Chicago New Party website, there isn’t much to find except a link to the Working Families Party website. What is the “Working Families Party” you ask?
The Wikipedia, again for what it’s worth, describes the Working Families Party in this regard:
New York’s Working Families Party was first organized in 1998 by a coalition of labor unions, ACORN and other community organizations, members of the now-inactive national New Party, and a variety of public interest groups. The party blends a culture of political organizing with unionism, 1960s idealism, and tactical pragmatism. The party’s main issue concerns are jobs, health care, education and energy/environment, and it has won notable policy gains at the city, county and state level by piggybacking on Democratic or Republican candidates.
The Working Families Party was organized by groups such as ACORN and former members of the now inactive New Party, two groups with which Barack Obama has had much involvement in the past. What’s more, the blurb discusses similar tactics used by the Chicago New Party of attaching themselves to the Democratic or Republican ticket in order to actually win elections as closet radical socialists.
Sound familiar? It should since the Chicago New Party’s goal was also to piggyback it’s way into prominent political offices by running as Democrats. This is the same way Barack Obama operated in Illinois while running for a state senate seat as a secret member of the Chicago New Party, running as a Democrat.
It comes, as no surprise then, that the Working Families Party has endorsed Barack Obama:
Barack Obama’s campaign has inspired millions of Americans to fight for the issues the WFP has long championed, whether it’s an economy that works for everyone, healthcare for all, protecting social security, or the right to join a union.
This November, Obama will appear on the Working Families Party ballot line – “Row E” – across New York. Votes for Obama on the WFP line count just the same, but they also let you vote your values and send a powerful message: New Yorkers demand real progressive change.
Reading that correctly? The Working Families Party has endorsed Barack Obama because they know he can, quote, bring “real progressive change”. The Working Familiies Party, made up of ACORN and the New Party, is endorsing Barack Obama because they know he is a radical socialist who used to work for ACORN and went out of his way to become a member of radical Chicago New Party when was running to be a state senator in Illinois.
So with all that, which is a lot to digest, where does it leave us?
The answer: Right back to where Barack Obama started, as a wealth redistribution proponent in the Chicago New Party:
As you can tell by now, when Barack Obama says “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody,” he truly means it in his own socialist mindset. His true feelings have emerged several times over the course of the campaign though no encounter has been as damning as his encounter with “Joe the Plumber,” to whom he shared his Chicago New Party socialist mindset.
Once again, I implore you as a fellow American who cares deeply for my country. Do not vote for Barack Obama, the radical socialist who has piggybacked his way onto the Democratic ticket.
If you vote for Barack Obama, you’re not voting for Barack Obama the “Democrat,” you’re voting for Barack Obama of the Chicago New Party, part of the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America, endorsed by the currently active and ultra-socialist Working Families Party.
If there is ever a time to put partisanship aside and do what is best for the country, now is that time. Vote against Barack Obama’s radical socialist agenda, which we have just documented and chronicled.
Finally, share this article with friends, family, and anyone thinking of voting for Barack Obama.
