Obama’s Communist Connection
By Ted Belman
Under this title, I referred to two reports,
“Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection” by Herbert Romerstein,
Herbert Romerstein, an author and investigative journalist, served as an investigator for the much-feared U. S. House Committee on Un-American Activities, the House Committee on Internal Security, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He was head of the Office to Counter Soviet Disinformation for the United States Information Agency. One of his recent books is the acclaimed THE VENONA SECRETS: EXPOSING SOVIET ESPIONAGE AND AMERICA’S TRAITORS.
“Communism in Chicago and the Obama Connection” by Cliff Kincaid.
Cliff Kincaid is an investigative journalist who specializes in analyzing the effects of communist and terrorist influence on the U.S. media. He is founder and president of America’s Survival, Inc., and editor of Accuracy in Media’s AIM Report. He is the author or coauthor of nine books, including WHY YOU CAN’T TRUST THE NEWS, and was instrumental in denying access to the U.S. media market to the Islamic terrorist Al-Jazeera television channel.
The reports are based on direct fact-finding and special access to historical, congressional, and investigatory documents.
SPONSOR: America’s Survival, Inc., , an independent watchdog group that monitors the United Nations and international terrorism.
A number of you wrote as follows
“This kind of takes me back to the Cold War days, Sen. Joseph McCarthy, et al.”
“Enough of this obsession with Obama’s real or imagined affiliations ”
“The stuff your are pushing on Obama is verging on the point of “racism”, a term which I personally abhor myself.”
“where do you get this drek-are you a illegitimate step bother of roy cohn? you should feel ashamed to embrace tactics only joe mc carthy would endorse-”
These comments and many worse that I already deleted gave me a moments pause and I sent out a warning to my list that I hadn’t vetted the authors or read the articles and so could not stand behind what they were putting forth. Then I removed the post from this site.
I have now read the reports and can advise that they are well researched. Essentially they trace Obama’s Communist connection.
The report by Romerstein focuses too much on the Communist Party in Hawaii and I could have done without that. But it does connect the dots such as Paul Robeson and Frank Davis, both Communists with young Barack Obama and his wrings in Dreams of my Father. The influence on Obama is undeniable. Cliff Kincaid covers this in his introduction.
The Report by Kincaid sets out the connection of Obama with known Communists or socialists. Apparently Obama was hand-picked by State Senator Alice Palmer to replace her. Her ties to Communism are well documented.This was announced at a meeting in 1995 attended by Ayers Dohrn, Palmer and Young.
These people are all Marxists. The same can be said of Rev Wright and his church. Many blacks were drawn to Communism because it supported liberation movements all over the world and thus offered hope to blacks, as it did in the early years, to Jews.
A recent study named Obama as the most liberal Senator. If you are a liberal you will embrace him for that. But perhaps he is more than a far left liberal, he is a progressive and liberationist and perhaps a socialist. Certainly all liberationists support him including the Palestinians. His church supports black liberation theology.
These reports make the case far better than I do. It is for every voter to decide whether these reports make the case and whether it matters.
This has nothing to do with racism. It has only to do with Obama’s political philosophy.
