Things the GOP Should Be Telling You About Obama and Company

The newly formed conservative "Falcon party" blames the GOP for rolling over and accepting the socialist/marxist policies of Barack Obama instead of fighting back for America.

"The Republicans have lost their nerve. Worse, they have lost their revulsion to socialism and Marxism and have devolved into politically correct, overfed capons. No other explanation suffices to illustrate their frightened, AWOL status on the following subjects:
  • Obama’s mentor for roughly 10 years in Hawaii before he moved off to college was a man named Frank Marshall Davis. Obama reveals “’Frank” as his respected mentor and adviser in Dreams of My Father, and recalls him fondly – nights of reading poetry together, drinking booze, and learning about the plight of blacks in America. Frank Marshall Davis was a radical Marxist and racist - and a pedophile. (Read all about Frank on Wikipedia here and in more detail from American Thinker here).

  • Obama, in his first book “Dreams”, bluntly stated that once in college he actively sought out radicals as his friends. Quote: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.” How many of these radical and Marxist friends did the MSM seek out for interviews? Absolutely ZERO. (Read “Obama’s Socialist Roots Run Deep” here).
  • Obama was a member of the New Party in the early to mid 1990s. The New Party was a group of radical leftists founded in order to unite the Communists, the Socialist Workers Party, Community Organizers, and other various fringe groups into a more effective political party. There are photographs of Obama proudly standing with its leaders and articles in their publications celebrating his state Senate victory, and his membership in the NP. (More at Newsbusters here and Human Events here).

  • Obama’s African father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was a card carrying Marxist. Though as a child Barack did not know his father, once older he began serious correspondence with him. And he subsequently dedicated his first book to this man in 1995. Obama Sr., amongst other things, advocated the “communal ownership of land and the forced confiscation of privately controlled land”, nationalizing foreign owned properties in his native Kenya, and “no limit to taxation if the benefits derived from public services by society measure up to the cost in taxation which they have to pay”. Pure Marxism, and a heavy influence on Obama Jr. (PrestoPundit has a good primer on Sr.’s marxism here.)
  • Obama’s very own mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was also a dedicated leftist her entire life. Obama credits her with having the most influence on his young life, saying “”the dominant figure in my formative years… The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics.” She has been described by her friends as a “fellow traveler” – code word for communist. ( has more here).

  • Obama married Michelle Robinson. While Michelle can certainly be charming, she had to learn on the campaign trail to not portray America as a greatly flawed and depressing country – which of course only her husband could fix. Twice she stated she was “for the first time proud of my country” before such nonsense reached the media and she was forced to backpedal and whitewash. Her admonition for women to reject careers in “corporate America” in favor of “community service” reeks of class warfare. Her Princeton college thesis is pathetic race victim pablum sprinkled with hackneyed socialism. (Slate dissects it brutally here.)
  • For twenty plus years Obama (later joined by wife and kids) sat in the pews of Trinity United Christian Church, home of his “great friend and mentor”, Pastor Jeremiah Wright. Everyone is familiar with Wright’s racist and anti-American rants that received some media coverage back in June. However, the larger story is that Rev. Wright and his ‘church’ are devoted adherents to Black Liberation Theology. Black Liberation Theology is a particularly noxious and ardently Marxist worldview. And Barack chose this institution willfully and continues to heap praise on it, despite being forced to finally toss the good Reverend under the bus during his campaign. (Much more on BLT here and here).

  • Barack Obama traveled to Kenya in 2006 as a sitting US Senator and campaigned (illegally so) for socialist presidential candidate, Raila Odinga. Odinga was defeated, but due to his post election agitation, riots ensued and more than 1500 Kenyan citizens were murdered. Kofi Annan brokered a power sharing agreement to stop the violence and Odinga was appointed Prime Minister. This is a man who was so enamored with Fidel Castro that he named his first born son Fidel in his honor. (Newsweek’s sanitized essay on Odinga here, and the real Obama/Odinga story here from the Washington Times).
  • Obama, as we have found out from the unrepentant terrorist himself since the election, was much more than just “neighbors” with Bill Ayers. According to Bill, they are “family friends”. That Obama was blatantly lying about the extent of their relationship is inarguable. But even the relationship that was ‘on record’, as political allies in Chicago politics, and allies in getting their education ‘agenda’ realized through the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, was highly exploitable. For starters, Ayers may have quit advocating bombings, but he never once stopped advocating Marxist dogma, especially as it applied to education in America. And Obama was in lockstep, going so far to give a glowing review of Ayers’ 1997 book, A Kind and Just Parent, praising the Marxist gibberish as “a searing and timely account of the juvenile court system”. It has also been shown that there is a very real possibility that Ayers either edited or co-wrote Obama’s ‘Dreams’ book. (NR’s Stanley Kurtz has more on the Obama/Ayers working relationship).

  • Obama has an ongoing relationship with Code Pink, the Marxist, anti-war outfit most famous for protesting outside of Walter Reed military hospital and at military recruitment offices. Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans was a principle Obama ‘bundler’ during the campaign, raising tens of thousands of dollars, and arranging events for Obama. Even after Evans stormed the stage at a Palin speech and was arrested, the MSM refused to report on the links and friendship with Barack Hussein Obama. (FreeRepublic covered this topic best, here, here, and here).

The above close associations are only a partial list, for brevity’s sake. But there are many others, including radical islamist and former black panther Khalid al-Mansour, a man identified by civil rights leader (and Obama supporter) Percy Sutton as ‘sponsoring’ Obama during his Harvard days. Obama denies knowing him, yet al-Mansour and Sutton told the media the opposite. Also, “close friend” Rashid al Khalidi, Black Liberation soulmate and anti-semite Louis Farrakhan, his self described “spiritual advisers” such as the Marxist priest Father Pfleger and Reverend James “house niggers” Meeks, official campaign artist and Marxist propagandist Shepard Fairey, and Communist Party USA board member Tim Wheeler, who was honored by Obama with his own blog on the official Obama/Biden campaign website; all remained virtual unknowns. It goes on and on.

So what prevented the GOP and the McCain campaign from exploiting the history of Barack Obama and telling the true story about his politics and worldview? Shouldn’t the urge to prevent such a radical from gaining the presidency of this blessed nation have outweighed any fear of being labeled racists and fear mongers by Obama’s cheering section in the MSM? Only a fool or a leftist could have been comforted by Obama’s attempts to sound notes of moderation during the general election.

There was a reason that Obama received endorsements from North Korea’s official news outlet, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, the Communist Party in the US (CPUSA), France’s Socialist Party, The New Black Panther Party, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the radical Palestinian party Hamas, British communist MP George Galloway, Libyan dictator Momar Kaddafi, Calyspo Louie’s Nation of Islam, Nicaraguan communist Daniel Ortega, and virtually every radical, leftist, socialist and Marxist organization in existence."

Why do you claim that Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis? Because conservative firebrand Cliff Kincaid said so? "Dreams From My Father" belies that claim.

Although Obama's book indicates "Frank" offered him advice on racial issues, Obama wrote that Davis "fell short" and his views were "incurable." Obama did not even visit Davis for three years before going to college. Obama's book, itself, proves that Obama did not consider Davis to be a "wise and trusted counselor," which is the definition of "mentor." But what creative definition can Davis be considered his "mentor"?

Frank Marshall Davis was a radical Marxist and racist - and a pedophile.. as you pointed out Obama merely said he "fell short" on an issue or two....instead of "mentor" would you prefer "pal" or "buddy".. an influence at the minimum.

People have more than one mentor in many cases throughout their lives... Saul Alinsky William Ayers Reverend Jeremiah Wright... and Frank of course, looks like Obama has had many as well.

Here is more on "Frank" Davis...(from American Thinker)

"Davis, who is now deceased, was an African American from the Midwest who had worked as a columnist for the Chicago Star, the communist newspaper of Chicago, a city that had one of the largest CPUSA affiliates, and, in fact, hosted the September 1919 convention that launched the American Communist Party. Though Davis always tried to conceal any communist associations -- ironically, Obama supporters have picked up that torch -- there's no question that Davis was a communist, as is immediately evident upon reading his columns, examining his background, or consulting with people in the party (to this day) who confirm he was a communist. The fact that he was at least a lower case "c" "communist" is obvious. It takes a little more digging to find evidence of his membership in CPUSA -- but not much. Among the sources that reveal his membership are Davis himself, notably in a letter he wrote to a friend, published posthumously by his biographer, Professor John Edgar Tidwell. "I have recently joined the Communist party," wrote Davis.

In 1948, Davis just happened to arrive in Hawaii the same time that leaders of the Communist Party in Hawaii -- realizing the limits of national party organs like the Daily Worker and People's Daily World -- established their own weekly newspaper, the Honolulu Record. In 1949, Davis began writing a regular column for the Record, titled, "Frankly Speaking." This was a key form of agitation work that Davis would do for the party in Hawaii for decades.

A young Barack Obama knew Davis in the latter 1970s, introduced by his maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham, who, in many ways, saw eye-to-eye with Davis, and saw in Davis a potential role model and father-figure to his grandson. Dunham and Davis were close friends.

Though proud of Davis, and very affectionate toward him, Obama sought to obfuscate the identity of Davis in his book, Dreams from My Father, where he strangely referred to him only as "Frank," conspicuously avoiding his full name. Politically, Obama needed to make Davis anonymous, whereas, personally, he could not avoid acknowledging in his memoirs a man who meant so much to him."

Davis was not a radical Marxist, a racist, or a pedophile. It is indeed regrettable that so many honest people have been hoodwinked by a skillful disinformation campaign led by Cliff Kincaid's ironically named "Accuracy In Media" (AIM). Fraudulent memes, unwittingly propagated by well-intentioned bloggers, have spread throughout the blogosphere, which proves the effective of viral disinformation campaigns. Even the title of Kincaid's initial attack, "Obama's Communist Mentor," is itself a masterful deception. Through the "fallacy of equivocation," it implies three enduring falsehoods:

- That Davis was an avowed or known communist who advocated collectivist principles. The evidence, however, indicates that Davis never advocated communism.

- That Davis had a continuing mentorship with teenage Obama, "almost like a son." The evidence, however indicates that Davis was an occasionally visited family friend whom Obama did not even see for three years before college.

- That Davis taught communism to young Obama. The evidence, however, indicates that although Davis offered advice on racial issues, Obama did not even trust that advice.

(The "fallacy of equivocation" is the misleading use of a term with more than one meaning or sense, by glossing over which meaning is intended at a particular time. It occurs when an equivocal word or phrase makes an unsound argument appear sound.)

Through innuendo, half-truths and outright fabrication, Obama’s opponents have deliberately misrepresented a casual family friendship as sordid political indoctrination sessions or worse. In their fervor to malign Obama, they sought to transform the legacy of a relatively obscure leftist poet into a “Stalinist agent” who corrupted Obama’s values. Slander and libel were their tools of the trade, because truth was no obstacle. Destroying Davis’s reputation was collateral damage.

Another card in AIM's web of lies is their claim "Obama's Red Mentor Praised Red Army" (see, which is a half-truth built on the falsehood of mentorship. Cliff Kincaid neglects to mention that during WWII many Americans, including President Roosevelt, praised the Red Army because the Soviet Union was our ally (see

University of Kansas Professor Edgar Tidwell, whom AIM's Cliff Kincaid cites as "an expert on the life and writings of Davis," dismisses misrepresentation of Davis's influence in one simple paragraph:

"Although my research indicates that Davis joined the CPUSA as a "closet member" during World War II, there is no evidence that he was a Stalinist, or even a Party member before WWII. Further, to those attempting to make the specious stand for the concrete, there is no evidence that he instructed Barack Obama in communist ideology. Frank Marshall Davis did NOT believe in overthrowing the USA. He was committed to what the nation professed to be. For him, communism was primarily an intellectual vehicle to achieve a political end-a possible tool for gaining the constitutional freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for ALL Americans" (see ).

The AIM disinformation campaign consisted of a series of small lies fabricated to support the big lie that "His values, passed on to Obama, were those of a communist agent who pledged allegiance to Stalin" (see A painstakingly documented analysis of Kincaid's falsehoods is posted as "specific misrepresentation" at I invite any person of integrity to refute my evidence against his body of lies. If he had authentic evidence of Davis's radical influence, he would not need to fabricate such evidence.

Accuracy in Media... as opposed to the "fair practices" of "Media", fact etc?

I posted something from the Falcon Party website... (which I have nothing to do with) and also posted your comments in rebuttal... people can make up their own minds on Obama's socialist and communist pals and former pals... or they can just take a look at his actions and policies and possibly come to the same conclusion.

My goal is neither.
The goal of this blog is to provide one more voice to combat the lies, deception and political propaganda spewed by the media and leftist blogs and to promote conservative views, beliefs and values while holding my own side accountable.

In reading your defense at various websites against your dad and Obama being communsits/socialists it seems to boil down to splitting hairs over marxism, fascism, socialism and communism and then ending with "since Bush and McCain already took America down the road to socialism, we are all socialists now anyway".

Is that about it?

"Is that about it?" Not exactly, but thanks for asking!

Although I am far less interested in the Obama socialism issue than I am interested in refuting blogosphere misrepresentation of my father, I disagree with labeling any mixed economy as "socialist" because there is no objective standard aside from Marxist socialism. Ayn Rand may have considered every mixed economy to be socialist. A Marxist may consider no mixed economy to be socialist. AIM indicated the Bush and McCain were socialist, and Newsweek said "we are all socialists now." If any mixed economy can be considered "socialist," it has become a term with no constant meaning through semantic entropy, and useful only as a relative economic descriptor in rational discussions.

BTW: I link to my blog for detailed analysis of falsehoods regarding my father. I invite every person of integrity to critique the "specific misrepresentation" I refute at . Thanks for your consideration.

I understand and respect your wanting to defend your father. But as I said above, you're really just splitting hairs over socialism, communism, marxism, and now mixed economy... lol.

Every socialist and communist claims to have re-invented the same old thing over and over again by claiming it's nothing like the old versions.

Okay... so Obama's socialism is socialism 9.0 then and your father was merely a closet communist.
Fair enough?

Yes, he refused to deny his membership. When you're right, you're right. He was no angel. I only have problems with lies about him, not the truth.

John Hanson (1715-1783) was the first president (1780-1783) of the United States under the Confederation before the Oligarchs took power with the Constitution which allowed Bush to be president and the ownership of guns. Hanson was an Oldenburg Moor, a black nobleman, and like Elijah-Moses-Enoch-Baptist-Mahdi-Elvis, went to space on a fiery alien ship and never died. Hanson has returned as Obama to end the evil Oligarchy! This is why they could never find Obama's birth certificate! Danny Lazare is right to want to change this NRA chad Oligarch Constitution which allows the angry white talk radio males to object to Obama's berth certificate! We must impeach Scalia to disable the southern oligarchs of Calhoun, Corker, & Shelby and their demented Constitution. They have this evil bill of rights with rights for hate speech, guns, lobbyist blogging, campaign bribery, states, property, bonuses, and other oligarchic thievery that needs to end! Such euphemism, like when they call you boy as if they ever intend to call you man when you "grow"! This is why we must oppose oligarch-serving superstition by supporting one-state solutions in India-Packistain, Palestain-Isreal, Turkey-Grease, Creatia-Servia, Armeania-Asbyjean and Zahir-Condo. Then we can abolish greed and superstition across the globe with free psychiatric healthcare. We need to do domestically like we did in Servia, to teach these oligarchs they have no rights to be superstitious racists.
