>Obama: Communist Sympathizer?


What Obama Has In Common With

Putin, Hu Jintao, Raul Castro,

Hugo Chavez, and Kim il Sung

What are the links that logically take us to the conclusion that Barak Obama acts, talks, and looks like a practicing communist?

I would first suggest the reader refer to the Accuracy in Media blog and an article by Cliff Kincaid published August 7, 2008. In a great measure this column is a review of Jerome Corsi’s book, The Obama Nation.

Obama has been asked before and is now in denial about his communist activities and connections.

John McCain should ask that question again in the next debate before millions of TV viewers. Obama will again deny it, making it easier for us to make our case because a presidential debate denial opens up a Pandora’s box of imponderables and places to take this. Guess what? NY Times reporters may start asking the same logical question.

But listen to Kincaid: “In a surprising admission that could become a major scandal in the presidential race, Barack Obama’s 40-page so-called “rebuttal” to Jerome Corsi’s book, The Obama Nation, acknowledges for the first time that the senator once had a personal relationship with identified Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis, a key high-level operative in a Soviet-sponsored network in Hawaii.

“But the 40-page report, advertised and sold to the media as a refutation of Corsi’s “lies,” doesn’t identify Davis as a hard-core communist and it dishonestly edits an article about Davis to eliminate references to his admitted involvement in CPUSA activities and make the black revolutionary writer and “poet” look like a civil rights activist.”

Selective Editing

The Obama report admits that “Frank” was in fact Frank Marshall Davis—something AIM confirmed back in February. But in trying to rebut Corsi’s charge that Davis was a significant negative influence over Obama, the Obama report on page 10 quotes “an article on Davis” that describes him as being involved in the “labor movement” with other “African-American intellectuals” and committed to racial integration and harmony. No title or name of the author of the article is given. The article is simply identified as being from the Western Journal of Black Studies (WJBS).

Questia is an online library of books and journals and a source for the following. The article, “Frank Marshall Davis: A Forgotten Voice in the Chicago Black Renaissance,” was written by Dr. Kathryn Takara, an Obama supporter who has been critical of Accuracy in Media’s attempt to document Davis’s involvement in the CPUSA and his mentorship of Obama.

Takara is a radical poet herself, having written poems in honor of Communist Party member Angela Davis and convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. She was recently quoted in an Associated Press article that portrayed Davis as a positive influence on Obama and ignored his CPUSA membership. So much for the AP’s once ballyhooed fairness and honesty reporting doctrine. I should know of its former credibility, I was an AP newsman many years ago.

The pro-Davis quotes in the Takara article in the WJBS, which are cited in the Obama report, are actually preceded by Davis’s own incriminating words, in which he says: “From now on I knew I would be described as a Communist. . .”

In yet another part of the article the Obama report ignores, Takara writes that “Davis joined the League of American Writers, a national united front

organization for the Communist Party mobilized by the alarming rise of power of Hitler and Mussolini.”

In fact, Davis signed a statement by the League of American Writers in June

1941 opposing war against Nazi Germany at a time of the Hitler-Stalin pact. This was a reflection of the CPUSA line. Davis went from anti-war to pro-war after the Nazis attacked Stalin.

So here we have it: another official acknowledgement by an Obama (and Davis) supporter that Davis was involved in a CPUSA front. But the Obama report doesn’t admit anything of the kind. In fact, Davis’s entire record of involvement in the CPUSA and its fronts is completely covered-up.

All of which raises the question that we have asked on numerous occasions: why are Obama and his followers in the media ignoring his documented relationship with a CPUSA member? And why did Obama only refer to Davis as “Frank” in his book?

I shall answer this question in a second blog.


>Will North Korea Keep Its Agreements This Time?

North Korean nuclear talks lead to agreement

BEIJING – In an Associated Press story by Henry Sanderson we learn that negotiators from six nations agreed Saturday on steps to verify North Korea’s nuclear disarmament, opening the final phase in tortuous efforts to rid the North of nuclear weapons.

Let’s blog this one in the comments below. Will North Korea, finally, live up to its word? Many believe it won’t.

The agreement was reached after three days of talks. It requires North Korea to finish disabling its main nuclear facility by the end of October.

That will be the clincher. I’m wondering if we will see live video of that event, just like we saw pictures of the implosion of the water tower gismo that was supposed to have been integral to the dismantling process. I’m also wondering if what we’ll see is an old facility blown up while the real nuclear facility lies concealed behind some trees somewhere.

Who were the six nations? Well, of course China and the U.S., South Korea, Japan and probably Great Britain–did I miss one–maybe Russia–took part in agreements where North Korea was promised deliveries of fuel oil and other economic aid. I think we need James Bond back to go over there and discover what the smart diplomats failed to discover. He could go by sea in his underwater car. That way they would never detect him when he pulled onto the beach. He’s the only one capable of verifying anything.

The envoys agreed to a robust verification team of experts who will visit North Korean nuclear facilities, review its documents and interview its technical experts. Ah, verification…that’s the key, isn’t it. These scientists won’t find anything. They’ll be flown in there, sleep at the best hotels–not the kind that fall down with a seismic wave of 5.5. They’ll take pictures of something, wag their heads, agree, and fly home to announce all is well in North Korea, the little brother of a very duplicitous China, when it isn’t.

The last time we thought we had it done, we went along for several months, a year, then North Korea threw out everyone once they had their bread and butter and blasted a missile over Japan, just to flex their muscles and scare the Niponese a little.

It will be September before the entire “agreement” is on paper. Some specifics of the verification remained to be worked out. That merely means the Chinese version of L’Empire will figure out how they can further deceive the world. Yes, I said China because North Korea takes orders from Beijing. Experts and diplomats from the six nations hoped to agree on those steps by early September, said U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill.

Last time participating ministers didn’t see any obstacles and that’s what they are saying again. The only obstacle is the hubris and avarice of one bad man, Korean leader Kim Il-sung who takes his cues from another bad man, Chinese leader Hu Jintao. Kim loves to kill two things once he has what he wants: international deals and people.
