JERUSALEM – President Obama participated in a controversial 1990s political party with a socialist agenda, recalls a major member of the organization known as the New Party.
WND previously reported on newspaper evidence showing Obama was a member of the New Party, which sought to elect members to public office with the aim of moving the Democratic Party far leftward to ultimately form a new political party with a socialist agenda.
Now a former top member of the New Party recounted in a WND e-mail interview Obama’s participation with his organization.
“A subcommittee met with (Obama) to interview him to see if his stand on the living wage and similar reforms was the same as ours,” recalled Marxist activist Carl Davidson.
“We determined that our views on these overlapped, and we could endorse his campaign in the Democratic Party,” Davidson said.
Davidson was a Chicago member and activist within the New Party. He told WND he handled some of the New Party member databases and attending most of the party’s meetings.
Davidson is also a notorious far-left activist and former radical national leader in the anti-Vietnam movement. He served as national secretary for the infamous Students of a Democratic Society antiwar group, from which the Weatherman domestic terrorist organization later splintered.
Davidson remembers Obama attending one New Party meeting to thank attendees for voting for him.
Davidson said that to his knowledge Obama was not a member of the New Party “in any practical way” – using qualifying language.
Becoming a New Party member requires some effort on behalf of the politician. Candidates must be approved by the party’s political committee and, once approved, must sign a contract mandating they will have a “visible and active relationship” with the party.
Asked whether Obama signed the New Party contract, Davidson replied there was “no need for him to do so.”
“At the end of our session with him, we simply affirmed there was no need to do so, because on all the key points, the stand of his campaign and the New Party reform planks were practically the same,” Davidson told WND.
Davidson denied the New Party was specifically a socialist party, claiming, “The vast majority of active members were low- and middle-income blacks in the inner city fighting for their immediate demands.”
But the socialist-oriented goals of the New Party were enumerated on its old website.
Among the New Party’s stated objectives were “full employment, a shorter work week, and a guaranteed minimum income for all adults; a universal ‘social wage’ to include such basic benefits as health care, child care, vacation time and lifelong access to education and training; a systematic phase-in of comparable worth and like programs to ensure gender equity.”
The New Party stated it also sought “the democratization of our banking and financial system – including popular election of those charged with public stewardship of our banking system, worker-owner control over their pension assets [and] -controlled alternative financial institutions.”
Many of the New Party’s founding members were Democratic Socialists of America leaders and members of Committees of Correspondence, a breakaway of the Communist Party USA.
Obama attended several DSA events and meetings, including a DSA-sponsored town hall meeting Feb. 25, 1996, entitled “Employment and Survival in Urban America.” He sought and received an endorsement from the DSA.
Asked by WND whether he thinks Obama has socialist leanings, Davidson stated, “The truth is that Obama was and is a liberal Democrat and an Alinskyist community organizer – which if you know much about Alinsky, is just militant liberalism.”
“Obama was never a man of the left, either in his views or in being a member of an actual socialist organization,” added Davidson.
While running for the Illinois state Senate in 1996 as a Democrat, Obama actively sought and received the endorsement of the New Party, according to confirmed reports during last year’s presidential campaign.
The New Party worked alongside the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. The New Party’s aim was to help elect politicians who espoused its policies.
Among New Party members was linguist and radical activist Noam Chomsky.
Obama’s campaign last year denied the then-presidential candidate was ever an actual member of the New Party.
But the New Zeal blog dug up print copies of the New Party News, the party’s official newspaper, which show Obama posing with New Party leaders, listing him as a New Party member and printing quotes from him as a member.

The party’s spring 1996 newspaper boasted: “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 paper quoted Obama saying, “These victories prove that small ‘d’ democracy can work.”
The newspaper lists other politicians it endorsed who were not members but specifies Obama as a New Party member.
New Ground, the newsletter of Chicago’s Democratic Socialists of America, reported in its July/August 1996 edition that Obama attended a New Party membership meeting April 11, 1996, in which he expressed his gratitude for the group’s support and “encouraged NPers (New Party members) to join in his task forces on voter education and voter registration.”
The New Party, established in 1992, took advantage of what was known as electoral “fusion,” which enabled candidates to run on two tickets simultaneously, attracting voters from both parties. But the New Party went defunct in 1998, one year after fusion was halted by the Supreme Court.
According to DSA documents, the New Party worked with ACORN to promote its candidates. ACORN, convicted in massive, nationwide voter fraud cases, has been a point of controversy for Obama over the presidential candidate’s ties to the group.
In 1995, the DSA’s New Ground newsletter stated, “In Chicago, the New Party’s biggest asset and biggest liability is ACORN.
“Like most organizations, ACORN is a mixed bag,” the newsletter said. “On one hand, in Chicago, ACORN is a group that attempts to organize some of the most depressed communities in the city. Chicago organizers for ACORN and organizers for SEIU Local 880 have been given modest monthly recruitment quotas for new New Party members. On the other hand, like most groups that depend on canvassing for fundraising, it’s easy enough to find burned out and disgruntled former employees. And ACORN has not had the reputation for being interested in coalition politics – until recently and, happily, not just within the New Party.”

Did you know that one of the provisions (well hidden) of the Obama Health Care plan was the MANDATORY assignment of a national health care ID card which was RFID chipped, which means the federal government would have had the ability to track your whereabouts at any time 24-7 anywhere in North America, South America, Asia or Europe?
And you thought us Christian conservatives (I am a gay part native american Christian Conservative) were just all a bunch of redneck racist hicks didn’t you? I bet it never dawned on you that we are out here blogging and fighting and countering nonstop Obamaganda with factual truth so that you can continue to have the right to travel in privacy, without having to carry an RFID chipped national health care (cough: nonstop surveilance!) card. Imagine: us, knowing how muh you all hate us, caring about you left wing liberals – [ just like Jesus would ] – who are too foolish and misinformed to know that once the FED can get everyone to carry an RFID chipped health care card, guess what comes next in “illuminati globalist gradualism”?
That’s right…. they want to RFID chip you right in the arm. It can be done without you even knowing it by inserting the tiny micro-sized RFID chip right into the VACCINE. How about that?
=> US military & FEMA NorthCom being coordinated right now to enforce possible mandatory swine flu vaccines here in the USA
=> CIA lab created swine flu [see birdflu888.wordpress.com]
=> Baxter International patented the swine flu vaccine 2 years before swine flu even appeared! Wow. How did they do that I wonder? Things that make you go hmmmmm.
=> Eye witness locals in mexico state on the record in citizen journalist documentary videos that when swine flu “broke” in mexico earlier this year, guess what the World Health Org was doing? They were in Mexico at that time, giving “vaccine trials” to the locals. Isn’t that coincidental?
Are you connecting the dots yet? Here: I will help you:
=> Baxter International+Novarits+CIA+Mexico vaccine trials = swine flu released into the population just south of the USA border this spring, so that it will flow effortlessly into the USA and commence the “swine flu pandemic” scare. Atlanta CDC begins to hype swine flu wildly right around May, June… exaggerating the numbr of people infected in the USA by nearly 1000% in some cases. Yes, that’s right, a 1000% exaggeration. That is called HYPE, otherwise known as SPIN, otherwise known as Wag the Dog. Do you comprehend?
=> Mandatory vaccines=a huge chance for the $$$swine flu$$$ shot to be used to tacitly insert the much advertised and vaunted [cough: beast] RFID micro-sized chip to be inserted into your body right with the shot. YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW, AND THE RFID CHIP COULD NEVER BE RECOVERED AND REMOVED FROM YOUR BODY.
=> Swine flu [fake] pandemic=mandatory $$$vaccines$$$=huge profits for Baxter International. Ka-ching! Plus, they kill two birds with one stone: they rake in a fortune and microchip most all of the American population which they despise and want to control and moniter 24-7 like cattle.
Did you know all about this? Did you know that the RFID chip causes pussy malignant cancerous tumors in lab rats? Do you want to be a lab rat too?
If you don’t want to be a cancer crusted lab rat, and be RFID microchipped without your knowledge or consent, I suggest you turn off the TV set and start reading your tail off on Christian conservative patriot blogs like this one and get an education. They intend to do this if we do not speak out and put a stop to it. It’s not about the left or the right! It’s about stopping the march to Godless globalism. Watch this video:
Falling victim to their own “carpet Obaming,” it’s NY Mag that missed the teachable moment.
By Chase Hunter on 8.18.2009
This month’s New York magazine cover story: “The Selling and Selling and Selling of the President” reveals some disturbing inside tactics used by the Obama White House to keep USA Big Media continuously flooded with news, new takes on old news, fresh new gushes of Obama-adoration, new twists and turns in Obamanation policy and direction, and in general, the feature lays bare the adroit uses of Big Media news outlets 24-7 by Barack Obama as “Obama-speak” portals.
My take on all of this runs along psychiatric lines. I actually believe this man is psychologically addicted to seeing his own image in the media, so much so that he may actually fear for his own political existence should his image fail to appear in some news media outlet at least 15 to 20 thousand times per hour.
That’s about the frequency of times Obama’s name, or image appears somewhere in USA media outlets EVERY HOUR of every day. Either this is the most insecure and narcissistic elected official that we have ever elected, or this is the most vulgar, obscene and flagrant misuse and abuse of American media portals by any sitting president in US history. I’m leaning toward that the “Obama media fire hose phenomenon” is a little bit of both.
Obama’s non-stop hyperactive “media blitzkrieg” style of governance has cheapened and sullied the office of the President already. It has clearly wearied (and worried) an American public which earlier was certainly willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, even if there were quite a substantial number of potential detracters observing after his inauguration.
———————————— Excerpt —————————————-
A temperate July afternoon, with a slightly more intemperate press corps. Chip Reid, the White House correspondent for CBS News, is quizzing Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, about a health-care event the administration has arranged in Virginia. Why, he wants to know, is the administration calling this event a “town hall” when it has hand-picked all of the participants and questions? At first the exchange looks as if it’ll last only a few seconds. Then Helen Thomas, the woman with the single-longest institutional memory in the press corps, joins in.
THOMAS: It’s a pattern.
GIBBS: What’s a pattern?
THOMAS: It’s a pattern of controlling the press.
Being hammered daily with magazine covers, newspaper features, TV spots, video clips, radio news and rabid talk radio hosts ranting and pounding their fists about Barack Obama has had the odd overall reverse effect from what was most certainly intended:
We just don’t trust this man anymore.
Anyone who has to go to that extent day in and day out to sell, re-sell, re-position and then re-sell again – his own Presidency and leadership – needs to not be sitting in the White House, but perhaps is more suited to the rigors of maintaining one’s “Holllywood stardom” in the tradition of other Hollywood celebrities like, oh… let’s say, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Mickey Rourke, et al.
When a typical Hollywood movie star needs to “generate some good press” they usually make a new movie. After all, they are actors by trade. When Barack Obama needs to “generate some good press” he just makes an appearance and says a few well chosen words. Acting: it’s not really all that different from “being the President. Ronald Reagan knew all about that.
Don the role. Wag the dog. Play the part. Fill the shoes. Read your lines. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Don’t trip over the teleprompter.
It all is beginning to have that empty hollow ring to it that the aging movie star recognizes on the red carpet one night after way too many years in the limelight. The star is in mid-sentence giving his interview when suddenly the new flavor of the week arrives, steps out of the limosine, and all the reporters run like a hungry herd of coyotes to greet the new starlet, leaving the aging star opining to no one in mid-sentence.
It’s quite remarkable. Barack Obama has managed to wear out his welcome with the American people in less than a year. At this rate, by year’s end the only thing that will have ended up being noteworthy about his first year in office will be the computer screen wallpaper made from the “Obama-as-Joker” street graffiti art which was plastered all over L.A. one recent morning and went internet viral by late afternoon.
If Any Warhol were alive he would be having a field day with all of this. He was, after all, the consummate creator of the silkscreened commercialized plasticized public IMAGE of a human face, that could be elevated to such heights of mass recognition that the actuality of the living human being behind the image would just eventually fade and disappear.
Barack Obama is now in real danger of having this “throw away empty soda can syndrome” happen to him, to his Presidency, to his popularity, and to his first year’s public approval ratings. He has now been “promoted and consumed” ad nausem for more than 2 years nonstop, and frankly we are all sick of it.
My advice would be to get Mr. Hollywood’s face out of the media, and put the man to work, find out if he is actually capable of leading the country in the proper direction and hopefully doing something more constructive than mouthing gaffes, and writing away our national sovereignty, constitution and legislating away our civil liberties.
Here: I’ll help you get started – police brutality is on the rise and it must be checked, halted, and turned around immediately.
There is no reason for a routine traffic stop to end up with a mother of young children being wrestled to the ground and then tasered in front of her own kids. She had broken no laws and had done nothing wrong. These are the kinds of things happening now. They cannot be pushed under the rug. These incidents are ominous and foreboding.
I, for one, want to know why they are happening everywhere now in the US. There has been a clear uptick in this type of routine police brutality since last year. Increasingly, judges just look the other way. Why?
I was one of the people who was very vocal last summer in expressing that I did not want a vapid Hollywood celebrity for a President. Now that we are stuck with one, can his addiction to seeing his own face in the media be cured?
Does Obama the Joker need a psychiatrist? If there is a question of mental illness going around, have a look at the White House. Why does Barack Obama need to be in the media 20,000 times an hour? Are his REAL skills as a leader that weak? Drop the media “prop job” and let’s see if the man can actually stand on his own two feet without being propped up by Big Media 24-7.

This recent action by the Obama administration makes it a potentially legal medical nightmare and Russian Roulette experience for a person to accept vaccination and take a swine flu shot. If you are made sick from the shot, you will have absolutely no legal recourse. I consider this to be a criminal act by the Obama administration. Share and re-post this video and help to expose the criminal complicity of the Obama administration in the current hyped swine flu “pandemic for profit”.
