Obama’s International Socialist Connections

AIM Column | By Cliff Kincaid | February 14, 2008

The socialist connections of Obama and the Democratic Party
have certainly not been featured in the Washington Post
columns of Harold Meyerson, who happens not only to be a
member but a vice-chair of the DSA.

Campaign workers for Senator and presidential candidate
Barack Obama are under fire for displaying a flag featuring
communist hero Che Guevara. But Obama has his own
controversial socialist connections. He is, in fact, an
associate of a Chicago-based Marxist group with access to
millions of labor union dollars and connections to expert
political consultants, including a convicted swindler.

Obama's socialist backing goes back at least to 1996, when
he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the
Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state
senate seat. Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that
Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul
Mendelson, one of the "champions" of "Chicago's democratic
left" and a long-time socialist activist. Obama's stint as a
"community organizer" in Chicago has gotten some attention,
but his relationship with the DSA socialists, who groomed
and backed him, has been generally ignored.

Blogger Steve Bartin, who has been following Obama's career
and involvement with the Chicago socialists, has uncovered a
fascinating video showing Obama campaigning for openly
socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Interestingly,
Sanders, who won his seat in 2006, called Obama "one of the
great leaders of the United States Senate," even though
Obama had only been in the body for about two years. In
2007, the National Journal said that Obama had established
himself as "the most liberal Senator." More liberal than
Sanders? That is quite a feat. Does this make Obama a
socialist, too?

DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization
in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the
Socialist International. The Socialist International (SI)
has what is called "consultative status" with the United
Nations. In other words, it works hand-in-glove with the
world body.

The international connection is important and significant
because an Obama bill, "The Global Poverty Act," has just
been rushed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,
with the assistance of Democratic Senator Joe Biden, the
chairman, and Republican Senator Richard Lugar. The
legislation (S.2433) commits the U.S. to spending hundreds
of billions of dollars more in foreign aid on the rest of
the world, in order to comply with the "Millennium Goals"
established by the United Nations. Conservative members of
the committee were largely caught off-guard by the move to
pass the Obama bill but are putting a "hold" on it, in order
to try to prevent the legislation, which also quickly passed
the House, from being quickly brought up for a full Senate
vote. But observers think that Senate Democrats may try to
pass it quickly anyway, in order to give Obama a precious
legislative "victory" that he could run on.

Another group associated with the SI is the Party of
European Socialists (PES ), which heard from Howard Dean,
the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, back in
2006. Dean's speech is posted on the official Democratic
Party website, although the European socialist parties are
referred to as "progressive." Democrats, Dean said, want to
be "good citizens of the world community." He spoke at a
session on "Global Challenges for Progressive Politics."

Following up, in April 2007, PES President Poul Nyrup
Rasmussen reported that European socialists held a meeting
"in the Democrats HQ in Washington," met with officials of
the party and Democratic members of Congress, and agreed
that "PES activist groups" in various U.S. cities would
start working together. The photos of the trip show
Rasmussen meeting with such figures as Senator Ben Cardin,
Senator Bernie Sanders, officials of the Brookings
Institution, Howard Dean, and AFL-CIO President John W.
Sweeney, a member of the DSA.

The Brookings Institution is headed by former Clinton State
Department official Strobe Talbott, a proponent of world
government who was recently identified in the book Comrade J
as having been a pawn of the Russian intelligence service.
The socialist connections of Obama and the Democratic Party
have certainly not been featured in the Washington Post
columns of Harold

Meyerson, who happens not only to be a member but a
vice-chair of the DSA. Meyerson, the subject of our 2005
column, "A Socialist at the Washington Post," has praised
convicted inside-trader George Soros for manipulating
campaign finance laws to benefit the far-left elements of
the Democratic Party. Obama's success in the Democratic
presidential primaries and caucuses is further evidence of
Soros's success. Indeed, Soros has financially contributed
to the Obama campaign. It is not surprising that the Chicago

Democrat, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, has endorsed Obama.
Schakowsky, who endorsed Howard Dean for president in 2004,
was honored in 2000 at a dinner sponsored by the Chicago
chapter of the DSA. Her husband, Robert Creamer, emerged
from federal prison in November 2006 after serving five
months for financial crimes. He pleaded guilty to ripping
off financial institutions while running a non-profit group.
Before he was convicted but under indictment,

Creamer was hired by the Soros-funded Open Society Policy
Center to sabotage John Bolton's nomination as Ambassador to
the U.N. After his release from prison, Creamer released a
book, Listen to Your Mother: Stand up Straight: How
Progressives Can Win, described by one blogger as the book
that was "penned in the pen." A blurb for the book declares,
"Some people think that in order to win, Democrats need to
move to the political center by adopting conservative values
and splitting the difference between progressive and
conservative positions. History shows they are wrong. To win
the next election and to win in the long term, we need to
redefine the political center." In addition to writing the
book, Creamer is back in business, running his firm,
Strategic Consulting Group, and advertising himself as "a
consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass
universal health care, change America's budget priorities
and enact comprehensive immigration reform." His clients
have included the AFL-CIO and In fact, his
client list is a virtual who's who of the Democratic Party,
organized labor, and Democratic Party constituency groups.
Creamer's list of testimonials comes from such figures as

Democratic Senators Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Sherrod Brown
(Ohio), Harold Meyerson, founder Wes Boyd, and
David Axelrod, a "Democratic political consultant." Axelrod,
of course, is much more than just a "Democratic political
consultant." He helped State Senator Barack Obama win his
U.S. Senate seat in 2004 and currently serves as strategist
and media advisor to Obama's presidential campaign.

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.</</i>b>

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 October 1996 Update of the DSA 'New Party':
"New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering
down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates
this fall. Here are some of our key races...

Illinois: 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)."

Link To The New Party Update

Beyond the archived web page from the Socialist New Party is
the recognition by the "Progressive Populist" magazine in
November 1996 that Obama was indeed an acknowledged member
of the Socialist Party.

"New Party members and supported candidates won 16 of 23
races, including an at-large race for the Little Rock, Ark.,
City Council, a seat on the county board for Little Rock and
the school board for Prince George's County, Md. Chicago is
sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny
Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85%
victory. New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a
State Senate seat from Chicago. "
Link To The November 1996 Progressive Populist Article

The Democratic Socialist Party of America published in their
July/August Edition of New Ground 47 Newsletter.

"The Chicago New Party is increasely becoming a viable
political organization that can make a different in Chicago
politics. It is crucial for a political organization to have
a solid infrastructure and visible results in its political
program. The New Party has continued to solidify this

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."

Last week we documented Obama’s 1996 endorsement by the
New Party: which raises the question: what is the New Party?
It’s easy to allege that this group is closely tied to
former communists, but digging in to the New Party and
Obama’s involvement, a very dirty picture presents itself.
In fact, it is abundantly apparent that Barack Obama not
only knew what the New Party was when he sought its
endorsement, but through his ties with ACORN, the radical
left activist organization, Obama used his radical left
connections to get elected to the Illinois State Senate.

Maui, did she ever send you a link to an Australian blog that was full of Obama facts and info?  There is a fellow there who took a particular interest in Obama and had all kinds of excellent links and resources to follow about him.  Sure as heck wish I had kept these links and still can't find them on her computer here.


The kids had it revamped so I wonder if somehow all that info was erased?  Have to ask them.  It runs like a bullet now but I can't find anything on it.

Linda would have gotten a hoot out of you Maryilyn.  She could give as good as she got.....and she always brought a laugh to all of us when she did post.  I always enjoyed when her and Cam would post together...she always complained because she got the laptop that sucked.....when Cam would leave the room, she would quickly grab his laptop and post.  Someday I am going to find the "party thread" in the archives and bring it back up.  She was such a breath of fresh air and I really miss her too Cam.  I know she is reading our posts as she watches over us.  When we defeat will be our gift for Linda, because she worked so hard to get the word out about him.

Boy there is not doubt he is a socialist/communist! Looking back over the years it's pretty clear to see how this was all set up!! Somebody today should be smart enough to predict the next moves that Obama is planning to make seeoing as how it's so obvious to see! And it's easy to see where and how the UN comes into play with all of this and world control! Obama had his hands in all of it!!! This is a GREAT article Maui! I can't believe all of the old letters you have kept and info!
