It is time for the shocking truth about America’s internal security crisis, which starts at the top, to be presented to the American people. Our conference today fulfills the late Andrew Breitbart’s promise to finally “vet” the president. Our featured speaker, Paul Kengor, has written a book, The Communist. Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, which is a major contribution to understanding our president and his policies. Four years after we helped break this story, it is time to tell it.
CARL is how the FBI used to conduct background tests. CARL stands for character, associates, reputation, and loyalty -- except the FBI was not required to investigate Obama’s background. We will. A conservative attorney who has been probing into the backgrounds of Obama and his associates tells the story of attending a speech by Republican Rudolph Giuliani in 2011 and asking the former New York City mayor if he had ever considered the possibility that Obama was a mole. “What? A mole? God, I hope not,” was the response.
Such a suggestion may strike some as preposterous. But Frank Chapman, a communist activist who attended meetings of the Soviet front World Peace Council, used the term “mole” to describe Obama. He said Obama’s political success in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries was “a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle.” He went on, “Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through.” The Communist Party USA backs Obama to the hilt.
But Obama is more than a Marxist. At our October 27, 2011, “Soros Files” conference, Zubi Diamond said, “Barack Obama is Louis Farrakhan and Karl Marx rolled into one.” The website for this conference, www.LeninandSharia.com, captures the essence of Obama, as we see it, based on the evidence at hand.
Our task is complicated because of the Soviet strategy known as “disinformation” and the Islamic principle of deception for the sake of Allah — Taqiyya. Our major media are more than happy to be fooled. But those who fear for the future of our country have to be able to sort through the diversions and confusion being launched by foreign intelligence services and our enemies, using such outlets as Al-Jazeera, Russia Today, and Press TV. These channels represent, respectively, the Muslim Brotherhood, Moscow, and the Iranian regime. All of them have been permitted to operate on U.S. soil and gain access to the American people through cable and satellite programming.
It is difficult for the American people to ascertain the truth, especially when both major political parties have an interest in keeping it concealed. In the case that is under discussion today, it is clear that Republicans have been reluctant to expose Obama, apparently because they fear being branded as racists or McCarthyites.
Ironically, there is a precedent for such concealment, on the grounds of national security.
Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking Soviet-bloc official ever to defect to the West, has assembled the evidence in the John Kennedy assassination case demonstrating Lee Harvey Oswald’s Marxist and Soviet KGB ties. We have released a 20-page summary of his work, but recommend his book, Programmed to Kill, published in 2007. The reason this has gotten more attention recently is the revelation from a top Cuban defector, in former CIA officer Brian Latell’s book, Castro’s Secrets, that Castro’s intelligence service, the DGI, had advance knowledge of Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination plot. U.S. officials wanted the truth concealed at the time because of the fear of another confrontation, perhaps nuclear, with the Soviet Union, and public clamoring for another invasion of Cuba.
We believe it is never too late to set the record straight about the war being waged on America by our enemies. The truth about Obama should not have to wait 50 years. We do not have that long.
We have also provided the evidence of Sirhan Sirhan’s service to the communist cause, which is why he became a “political prisoner” in the eyes of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, associates of the current president, after he was imprisoned for the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Our information shows that a black communist group, the Revolutionary Action Movement, had also targeted RFK for death, on the grounds that his liberalism was an impediment to communist revolution. The Kennedy brothers were anti-communist liberals. It is telling that Obama would associate with communists who regarded Sirhan Sirhan as a political prisoner.
We have provided excerpts of Sirhan Shirhan’s diary, in which he declares, “Long live communism,” and states that the U.S. “decline” began on November 23, 1963--the day after JFK was killed by Oswald. We believe Oswald was, in effect, an agent of the DGI and KGB, based on the evidence. Sirhan Sirhan was perhaps one of the earliest examples of the deadly combination we address today — communism and Arab (or Muslim) terrorism.
Former FBI informant Larry Grathwohl points out that the Weather Underground was a virtual project of the Cuban DGI. He cites intelligence documents about extensive DGI, KGB and CPUSA involvement with the group. Veteran congressional investigator Herbert Romerstein quoted DGI officer Julian Torres Rizo as telling Venceremos Brigade visitors to Cuba, including Bernardine Dohrn, that U.S. society “must be destroyed.” Documentary evidence shows that Castro had urged Nikita Khrushchev to launch nuclear missiles at the United States from Cuba. This is the lunatic who still is in power just 90 miles away.
As if plotting and carrying out the murder of a U.S. president was not enough, Castro sponsored the bombing campaigns on American soil of the Puerto Rican FALN and today hosts fugitives from justice in America such as William Morales of the FALN and Joanne Chesimard of the Black Liberation Army. When the Congress passed a resolution urging Castro to send Chesimard back to the U.S. to serve out her life sentence for murdering a police officer, California Representative Maxine Waters sent a “Dear President Castro” letter saying she didn’t agree. That gets to the heart of a major problem, identified by Rep. Allen West, a black conservative, about Marxists in Congress and the Democratic Party.
The reaction from the Clinton Administration was to pardon members of the Weather Underground and the FALN. Eric Holder, then a deputy attorney general, played a critical role in that. Under Obama, as we have documented, Holder’s Justice Department released Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army terrorist Marilyn Buck from prison.
So the pattern is apparent.
There was a time when Marxists killed our president. Today, they have elected one.
So much is out in the open, as Obama does the bidding of the Russians and Cubans. He asks for flexibility from the Russians, in order to make new concessions after the election, and declares that Hugo Chavez, with ties to Iran and Hezbollah and the FARC, is not a security problem. Raul Castro’s daughter visits the U.S. to campaign for gay rights and, in the process, endorses Obama for another term, as a Jewish American hostage by the name of Alan Gross rots in Cuba.
Obama is surrounded by people who couldn’t pass the CARL test; many of these cases are documented in Trevor Loudon’s Barack Obama and the Enemies Within. We warned the Congress about the background of Leon Panetta, CIA director and now Pentagon chief, but the Senate endorsed him without one dissenting voice or vote. CPUSA attorney John Abt, personally requested by Lee Harvey Oswald to be his lawyer after being arrested for the JFK murder, had written a book boasting that Hugh DeLacy , a close friend of Leon Panetta, had been a secret member of the Communist Party while a member of the U.S. Congress. The purpose of the disclosure may have been to let DeLacy’s circle of friends know that others knew. Panetta’s secret mostly stays hidden because the Congress was afraid to open it up to public view.
A former attorney in the Labor and Justice Departments, Abt was a member of the communist spy ring exposed by Whittaker Chambers — a spy ring that also included Alger Hiss. DeLacy himself had ties to identified communist spies Solomon Adler and Frank Coe and accused spy John Stewart Service.
Anthony Lake is a long-time Obama adviser and Democratic Party foreign policy specialist who made headlines by doubting whether Alger Hiss, the United Nations founder and a U.S. State Department official, was really guilty of espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union. Lake had ties to the Institute for Policy Studies, a group which worked with Cuba and the former Soviet Union. Obama gave him a job at the U.N.
It is not clear if the CARL test was used on any of Obama’s advisers, including Van Jones, who left the White House when his communist background came to light. But we do know that standards are so relaxed that former Weather Underground terrorist Mark Rudd was invited to lecture at the FBI Training Academy. Mark Rudd has also offered advice to Obama, saying he should “feint to the right” and “move left.” He explained, “Any other strategy invites sure defeat.” This strategy is the mark of a mole.
We may be seeing that strategy in the handling of the Russian intelligence operation known as WikiLeaks. Obama officials have complained about it. But Obama Attorney General Eric Holder has failed to bring an espionage indictment against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. He gave up his television program on Moscow-funded Russia Today, an outlet for anti-American propaganda, to seek political asylum from a protĂ©gĂ© of Hugo Chavez. Meanwhile, WikiLeaks source and Army traitor Bradley Manning is spared the death penalty for the kind of treason that got the Rosenbergs executed. Manning’s White House connection, a gay rights activist working for Obama named Shin Inouye, goes free. George Soros, acting as the new Armand Hammer, finances the lawyers for Julian Assange through the Center for Constitutional Rights, while a Soros-funded group known as the Alliance for Global Justice pays for Manning’s lawyer.
This is an important case: America cannot save itself unless our state secrets are protected and traitors and treason are rooted out. Prosecution of WikiLeaks is a test case.
I had done conferences on international communism and global Islam, attracting different kinds of audiences and mostly different speakers. I then realized, in effect, that one group was talking past the other. Konstantin Preobrazhenky ties both of these problems together in his excellent talk this afternoon. He makes the point that since the time of Lenin, the communists always saw the Muslims as part of the “oppressed,” to be exploited in the world revolutionary process, and have accommodated or incorporated their interests when necessary.
The Soviet Union had a major advantage over the Muslim Brotherhood, being in a position of a nation-state and having the Comintern, the Communist International, at its disposal, to manipulate world events. Today, Soros plays the role of money bags for the old communist groups, as well as deploying such organizations as the Center for American Progress, Media Matters, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, to attack those daring to expose the current state of affairs.
The brilliant Brazilian journalist Olavo de Carvalho has contributed an article to my website www.usasurvival.org that explains what is happening: “Testimony after testimony, document after document prove that Muslim radicalism has not sprung spontaneously from the Islamic society, Islamic culture, but was created by the Soviet intelligence services and is still fed and monitored by Russian agents.”
A case in point is KGB agent Yasser Arafat, who ran one of the earliest spawn of the Muslim Brotherhood and made the cause of “Palestine” into one that would destroy Israel and weaken the West. Carlos, another KGB agent, made the cause even bigger and, from his jail cell in France, converts to Islam and endorses al-Qaeda. This sends a message to Marxists worldwide.
When a few brave members of Congress have called for an investigation of the Obama Administration’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood, they are, unfortunately, missing the point. Their call for the Inspectors General of various federal agencies to investigate this problem will fall on deaf ears or result in a sanitized report, like so many other official documents and pronouncements.
What is needed is a new House Internal Security Committee to be able to probe, with subpoena power, the foreign agents of influence operating behind the scenes, on behalf of regimes like the ones in Moscow and Havana. One of those agents of influence, going back in history with regard to Obama, was Alice Palmer, the Chicago politician whose pro-Soviet background is the subject of Trevor’s report. It is important to understand where Obama came from and how he arrived in the White House. This is an intelligence operation still underway.
Such a committee, for example, could have taken testimony from Van Jones and the FBI agents who, presumably, investigated his background. Such a committee could probe the complex offshore secret money transactions of George Soros.
Once we get back that new committee — and a new Administration — the federal government can bring back several other mechanisms for the purpose of rooting out subversion and treachery.
Consider what has been abolished over the last several decades:
It is highly ironic that Ted Kennedy, who lost his two brothers to Marxist assassins, would dismantle the last congressional unit or panel investigating such matters. Our speaker today, Paul Kengor, has written about a remarkable 1983 KGB document on Kennedy, which concerns a confidential offer that Kennedy made to the Soviet leadership. Kennedy wanted Soviet help in undermining Reagan’s policies.
Researcher Max Friedman has provided a copy of a 1970 Department of Justice document, “Contacts Between Representatives of the Soviet Union and Members or staff Personnel of the United States Congress Internal Security — Russia.” Senator Ted Kennedy was listed as one of 13 members of the Senate and House targeted more frequently by the Soviets. (one complete page of this document is on page 20 of this report).
Rebel pundit blogger Jeremy Segal brings the story up to date, while also shining the light on one of Obama’s former “New Party” comrades, Congressman Danny K. Davis, as Segal films Davis showing up to get an award from the Communist Party in Chicago. For this kind of blogging activity, in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart, we honor Jeremy today. Our media, even including “conservative” columnists such as Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune, turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to such stories, uncovered right in the towns where they are supposed to report from.
The people have been dumbed down regarding the threats against us. Russian President Vladimir Putin is a former Soviet KGB officer believed to have ordered or approved the poisoning death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko. Litvinenko had accused Russian KGB (FSB) agents of involvement in supposed Muslim terror attacks that killed more than 300 people in 1999 and is the source of the charge that Ayman al-Zawahiri is a KGB agent. Putin called the demise of the USSR “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century” and praised the Soviet spies in the Manhattan Project for stealing U.S. atom bomb secrets. But the Obama Administration wanted to “reset” relations with them on a higher plane.
At one of my previous conferences, Humberto Fontova documented how the Council on Foreign Relations employs a Cuban “expert” by the name of Julia Sweig who openly thanks Cuban officials and agents in the acknowledgements of one of her books. This is the same CFR that had Alger Hiss as a member.
In attempting to “vet” Obama four years ago, Herbert Romerstein and I held a news conference and released reports with the titles, “Communism in Chicago and the Obama Connection,” and “Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection.” Romerstein followed with detailed reports on both Davis and the Weather Underground. It is not my purpose here to go over all of this, although I do suggest you take a look at Trevor’s book, which goes back over four years and includes his seminal work on such figures as Frank Marshall Davis and Van Jones. It was Trevor who gave Glenn Beck the information on Van Jones that forced Jones out of his job. Unfortunately, Beck lost his job, when the Soros machine threatened News Corporation over Beck’s exposure of the people behind Van Jones and Barack Obama.
Obama had a background in Islam, as we document later in this report, but Frank Marshall Davis, who mentored Obama for about 8 years, was not a Muslim. Paul Kengor goes into detail in his blockbuster book about Davis’s pro-Soviet record, which explains a lot about Obama’s subservience to what Davis called “Red Russia.”
That is why it is so critical to take into account the announcements from Moscow just last week that Russia and Cuba are stepping up their “partnership,” including the further provision of military technology, during the course of celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations between the two nations. Remember that Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons would not be possible without Russia and that Iran’s Ayatollah is a graduate of the KGB’s Patrice Lumumba University.
Obama facilitates the Jihad, as demonstrated by his administration’s embrace of the Muslim Brothehrood, but any devotion he may personally have to global Islam has given way, domestically at least, to his desire to promote the cultural version of Marxism popularized by Italian communist Antonio Gramsci. In the “Third Jihad” movie that Ryan Mauro will show and talk about this afternoon, you will see Muslims demanding the murder of homosexuals, on the grounds that their lifestyle is abhorrent to Islam. That is shown in order to warn us about the Sharia, or Islamic law.
Yet, Obama seems to want to accommodate the Muslims, as opposed to the Christian community, and enable them to protect themselves from the Marxist-engineered disintegration of American life and culture that he himself is engineering. Obama is, as Newsweek put it, the first Gay President. The Muslims must figure they will be around to pick up the pieces.
A former top FBI counter-terrorism official told me that if you want to understand the radical Muslim plan, consult J. Edgar Hoover’s classic, Masters of Deceit, which was about communist methods of infiltration. The Third Jihad examines an actual document obtained by the FBI which outlines this plan.
The militant homosexuals have had a similar strategy of infiltration. It is an open secret that gay activists have made tremendous success in forcing acceptance of their lifestyle, and that the use of gay blood donors for both civilians and military personnel is the next phase of this campaign.
We released the FBI file on Harry Hay, the Communist Party member who served as the inspiration for the gay rights activism of Kevin Jennings, Obama’s “Safe Schools” Czar. Hay, considered the founder of the modern gay rights movement, was also an advocate for the “rights” of pedophiles. Social conservative commentators Judith Reisman and Matt Barber have noted that plans are being made right now to normalize pedophilia as another alternative lifestyle.
In this context, like the story of “Frank” being Frank Marshall Davis, which we broke with the help of Trevor Loudon in early 2008, we also exposed Davis as “Obama’s Sex Teacher,” based on a pornographic book called Sex Rebel that Davis wrote under a pseudonym, in which he talked about all kinds of bizarre sexual practices, including homosexuality, bisexuality, and even sex with children.
As Andrew Walden wrote in a report that we published four years ago, the term “Sex Rebel” was meant to characterize Davis’s rebellion against American society, another part of the communist revolution, which was to him a way to strike back against religion and its strictures on promiscuous sexual activity.
In a noteworthy development, another indication of the peculiar slant that characterizes WikiLeaks, the comrades of Julian Assange have posted an article defending Davis against these sex charges. Perhaps they feel they need to come to the defense of Davis because Assange himself faces sex charges from women in Sweden. That, plus the remote possibility of being charged with espionage here in the U.S., is what led Assange to seek political asylum from a regime allied with Hugo Chavez.
The WikiLeaks article attacked this writer for drawing attention to Davis’s scandalous relationship with Obama and his admitted sexual relations with children. In Sex Rebel, Davis talks about having sex with a 13-year-old girl named Anne. WikiLeaks suggested the Davis memoir Sex Rebel was entirely fictional. In fact, Davis biographer John Edgar Tidwell had described it as “semi-biographical.” It actually turns out to be more than that.
Joel Gilbert, whose new film “Dreams from My Real Father,” will be the subject of his presentation, has added new information to this part of the sordid story, not only looking at the distinct possibility that Davis was Obama’s real father but disclosing a letter from Davis in which he calls his “novel” Sex Rebel completely autobiographical and non-fiction (except for one part about Davis being physically in California). One of the letters goes on to say that he is having sex with an underage girl at the age of 76. “Currently my No. 1 woman here is a gorgeous and sexy girl with a face quite like Brooke Shields who became 17 two weeks ago,” he says. He goes on, “€¦I have had my eye on her since I first saw her at 13.”
So what we have here is cover-up on top of cover-up. Obama concealed the complete identity of “Frank,” while ignoring his “Sex Rebel” history. Davis tried to cover-up his sexual perversion by writing Sex Rebel under a pseudonym. All of this began unraveling when a blogger named Trevor Loudon would notice, back in 2007, that a communist writer named Gerald Horne had named then-Senator Obama as being under the influence of the “Frank” in Obama’s book, and that “Frank” was communist Frank Marshall Davis.
In addition to confirming Trevor’s identification of “Frank,” we disclosed the 600-page FBI file of Frank Marshall Davis in August of 2008. Davis had been under surveillance for 19 years, suspected of espionage, and on the FBI’s “security index.”
In terms of Sex Rebel, the critical fact is that being a pervert was not just a tawdry side of Davis. It was part of his communist identity.
If the media are interested in Mitt Romney’s alleged bullying of a possibly gay kid 50 years ago, shouldn’t they take note of what Davis may have done to a young Obama, over a period of 8 years? One thing Obama biographer David Maraniss does confirm is what many of us suspected -- that Obama’s poem in honor of “Pop” was directed toward Davis.
The poem includes these lines that are both shocking and sleazy:
The nation recoils in horror at the child predator Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State football coach protected and even facilitated by the university where he worked. Yet, the fact that Obama was under the tutelage of a pedophile for 8 years is a non-story. We know Davis was a pothead and a drinker, and it has now come out, even in the David Maraniss version of Obama’s life story, that Obama as a young man was heavily into drugs, not just an occasional user of marijuana and cocaine, as he had previously indicated. So what other terrible secrets are under wraps?
We can see this facet of Davis’s Marxism reflected in Obama, at least in terms of his policies on such subjects as gay rights, gay marriage, gays in the military, and so forth. Obama’s appointee Kevin Jennings facilitated that at the Department of Education, while Leon Panetta supervises this radical transformation at the Pentagon, our last line of defense, even while he bemoans anticipated cuts to the Pentagon budget.
Many people do not know that the Communist Manifesto called for the abolition of the traditional family, in addition to the abolition of private property. The real purpose of Obama’s gay rights activism may be the further destruction of the traditional family, in order to make way for a religion other than Christianity to fill the void. After all, as both Frank Marshall Davis and Malcolm X said, Christianity is the white man’s religion. The Muslims, as they seek protection in Sharia, stand to benefit.
It doesn’t please me to bring up these terrible topics, except for the fact that any rational vetting of a presidential candidate must take them into account. Yet, four years ago, when we tried to take out paid advertisements on the Drudge Report to draw attention to Davis’s mentoring of Barack Obama, we were told by Drudge’s people that the ads were too “controversial” and they would be rejected. Drudge is supposedly a conservative but those of us who follow these things know better. We know that he dated the conservative-turned-homosexual David Brock, one of the main Soros operatives now engaged in suppressing the unpleasant truth about the president.
What we have in the White House today is someone who could not survive any reasonable background check but is president, with access to America’s state secrets, and whose administration is now accused of leaking those secrets in order to maintain Obama in power.
We hear a lot of Obama taking out Osama bin Laden, whose last series of pictures showed him watching a TV set playing Al-Jazeera, and a pro-Obama Hollywood film is said to be in the works about the killing of bin Laden — to be released, of course, before the election.
But we seem to know next to nothing about the location of Ayman al-Zawahiri, a reputed KGB agent who has to be enjoying the protection of the Russians or the Iranians. Perhaps the killing of bin Laden was a diversion from the real war.
Mitt Romney recognizes the Russians as our “number one geopolitical foe,” but fails to recognize the nature of the president himself, refusing to describe Obama as a socialist. Here we have a case of a capitalist seemingly afraid of defending capitalism. No wonder he’s losing.
Sensing impending doom, News Corporation chief Rupert Murdoch faults Romney for running a bad campaign, a valid concern, when Murdoch and Roger AiIes fired the best guy they had on the air — Glenn Beck, who at least had the guts to call Obama what he is -- a racist -- and exposed the offshore secret money activities of Obama backer George Soros. My associate Tina Trent has a new chapter in that story, in her report documenting Soros funding of communist Angela Davis and her campaign to empty the prisons of the United States, on the grounds that criminals are victims of capitalist society. We continue Beck’s work through SorosFiles.com
Mr. Murdoch, if you want to get tough on Obama, “Bring Back Beck.”
Always on the cutting edge, Beck notes that Davis is the key to understanding Obama’s pro-Russian foreign policy. That’s one reason why the new Kengor book is published by Mercury Ink, an arm of Mercury Radio Arts, Inc., a multimedia production company owned by Beck.
Paul Kengor tells us that he sees Davis’s influence on Obama. “I do indeed see similarities between Obama and Frank Marshall Davis in that both men made favorable overtures to the Russians at the expense of both our interests and our allies,” he said. “Davis did this far more blatantly, taking Russia’s position against ours on matters ranging from the Truman Doctrine and Marshall Plan to NATO and Poland and Czechoslovakia, among many others. Obama is giving in to the Russian position on American missile defense, including joint missile defense with Poland and Czechoslovakia.”
He went on, “By the way, remember that Obama had cancelled U.S. plans for that joint missile defense back on September 17, 2009. That day just happened to be the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland. Poles painfully noticed the historical irony. Frank Marshall Davis joined CPUSA and sided with the Russians AFTER that invasion of Poland. The invasion, and the Hitler-Stalin Pact that precipitated it, launched WWII. And none of that dissuaded Davis from joining the Party, which he did in the middle of WWII.”
So the problem with Davis’s influence over Obama is not just that Obama adopted his economic views, on matters like socialized medicine. It’s that Obama reflects the Davis attitude about foreign affairs and America’s survival in a dangerous world.
Look at what Senators Bob Corker and Johnny Isakson say about the readiness of our nuclear weapons. They write, “President Barack Obama’s fiscal year 2013 budget request to modernize our nation’s aging nuclear weapons and laboratories falls about $370 million short of what the Senate deemed necessary when it supported the 2010 New START treaty.” Corker was one of those votes for New START with Russia, which is one reason why the Tea Party is targeting him for defeat in the Senate Republican primary in Tennessee on August 2. Isakson also voted for the pact.
Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, who voted against New START, puts it this way: “Our nuclear arsenal is as much about deterrence as it is about strike capability. Under the New START deliberations, Congress was assured by President Obama that our remaining nuclear assets would continue to be modernized. Based on the cuts and delays to our nuclear arsenal and facilities in his Fiscal Year 2013 budget, President Obama is once again going back on his word.”
In addition to the threat posed by the international communist movement, we are faced with global Islam. As the movie “The Third Jihad” makes clear, there are radical Muslims and there are moderate Muslims.
But take a look at one of the “moderate” regimes — Saudi Arabia, source of most of the 9/11 hijackers. I was amused to read the new book by Fox News contributor Dick Morris entitled Screwed, with several pages on how Saudi Arabia’s financing of Jihad threatens the U.S. “In Screwed!,” Morris says, “we reveal that the Saudi Monarchy, which we defended in the Gulf War with American blood, is the source of 90 percent of the global funding for radical Islamist mosques and schools throughout the world. Our oil dollars at work!”
He fails to note that Saudi Prince Alwaleed, a member of the Saudi Royal Family and about as rich as Soros, owns 7 percent of the Fox News parent company, making him the second largest stock holder in News Corporation. Columnist Diana West says News Corporation should register as a foreign agent. She writes, “Alwaleed’s long march through U.S. institutions is a mainly post-9/11 progression greased by his purchase of about a 5.5 percent stake in News Corp. in 2005, and his purchases, I mean, gifts, of $20 million apiece to Georgetown and Harvard Universities, also in 2005.”
She goes on, “There have been other eye-catching displays of Alwaleed’s largesse—$500,000 in 2002 to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Hamas- and Muslim-Brotherhood-linked entity, and a whopping $27 million, also in 2002, to the families of Palestinian ‘martyrs,’ aka suicide bombers. These, along with Alwaleed’s self-described ‘very close relationship’ with Murdoch son and apparent heir-apparent James, a left-wing global-warmist with virulently anti-Israel views, should only deepen Americans’ concerns about Fox’s ties to ‘the prince.’ Recently, Murdoch and Alwaleed have discussed expanding their business relationship through the Murdoch purchase of a substantial stake in Rotana, Alwaleed’s huge Arab media company.”
Alwaleed is the subject of a biography written by Riz Khan, formerly of CNN who went to work for Al-Jazeera. The channel’s main voice, Yusef al-Qaradawi, has been called the Lenin of the Muslim Brotherhood, for a reason. One of our speakers, Ryan Mauro, has been one of the leading writers on the nature of the regime in Qatar that sponsored al-Qaradawi, before he went to Egypt to serve the Brotherhood there.
You may recall that Percy Sutton, shortly before his death, indicated that an Islamist by the name of Dr. Khalid al-Mansour had paid for Barack Obama's education at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour is a business associate of Alwaleed who has written such titles or given such speeches as “Will the West Rule forever?,” and “The Challenges of Spreading Islam in America.” Al-Mansour is a former Black Panther turned black Muslim who is now listed on the “African Leadership Academy” website as being from “Saudi Arabia.” As journalist Ken Timmerman notes, al-Mansour’s rise to fame and fortune began with an introduction to the Saudi King himself in Ryadh, Saudi Arabia, in 1977. He was Donald Warden, his “slave name,” before he changed his name after studying Islam.
Sutton told a New York cable channel that al-Mansour was “raising money” for Obama and had approached him in 1988 for help in getting Obama into Harvard Law School. Sutton called Obama “the brightest, most wonderful person.” He said of al-Mansour’s relationship to Alwaleed, “He is the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men,” Sutton said he was asked to write a letter on behalf of Obama and that he did so, saying he thought Obama was a “genius.”
Sutton, former Borough President of Manhattan, not only was a lawyer for Malcolm X but represented Henry Winston of the Communist Party. He appointed Priscilla Hiss, wife of Soviet spy Alger Hiss, to a community planning board. We discovered that Sutton had spoken in 2006 of his long association with and appreciation for James and Esther Jackson of the CPUSA and that a story in the party newspaper the People’s World added, “This began in Texas where Sutton grew up in a family of 12, half of whom became communists.” Two of them, Emma Tenayuca and John Inman, were identified as chairs of the Communist Party of Texas.
The story of Obama is a tragedy in this respect, as he is only the latest of black “leaders” to come under the influence of communists whose intentions all along, since the days of Lenin, have been to manipulate and exploit. The danger is not only as the Republicans say, that Obama’s administration may be a failure, but that Obama’s policies are designed to make America itself fail.
We discovered that Sutton was remembered at a memorial service where Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States, said, “I admitted, respected and worked for him.” News reports described Sutton as Holder’s mentor. Sutton had been Jesse Jackson’s political mentor when Jackson ran for president, along with Hunter Pitts “Jack” O’Dell, the Communist Party operative who had become a close adviser to Martin Luther King Jr. The Kennedy Brothers had warned King against succumbing to the influence of the communists. After King was assassinated, O’Dell moved on to Jesse Jackson.
Except for opposing America’s war against communism in Vietnam, Martin Luther King, Jr. tried to maintain his focus on civil rights and the achievement of a color blind society. That is not how Barack Obama and Eric Holder have approached their jobs. As Rusty Weiss and I have written, in a story released by Accuracy in Media, based in part on the revelations in Paul Kengor’s book, Frank Marshall Davis also had a racist side, which he passed on to Obama, telling him that black people “have reason to hate,” and declaring Jesus Christ to be the “New White Hope.” His contempt for Christianity was evident.
As Kengor’s book documents, Davis:
But as we know, there is more to Obama than Marxism, which leads us to examine Obama’s relationship with Islam in some detail. In this context, his bowing to the King of Saudia Arabia appears to be more than a matter of courtesy.
When questions came up about Barack Obama’s religious affiliation, his aides flatly asserted that he was a “practicing Christian” and was “baptized” in the Trinity United Church of Christ. We have to remember, however, that the same Obama campaign apparatus had asserted that the mysterious “Frank” in Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, was just a black civil rights activist.
He acknowledges in Dreams that his grandfather was a Muslim (page 104) and that he spent two years in a Muslim school in Indonesia studying the Koran (page 154). In The Audacity of Hope, he says (page 204) that “my father had been raised a Muslim” but that by the time he met his mother, his father was a “confirmed atheist.” His stepfather was not particularly religious and his mother professed “secularism,” Obama wrote (pages 204-205), but as a child he went to a “predominantly Muslim school,” after being first sent to a Catholic school. His mother, he said, was concerned about him learning math, not religion.
Obama’s reference to being baptized is found in his second book, The Audacity of Hope, published in 2006, not in Dreams, published in 1995. Obama wrote on page 208, “I was finally able to walk down the aisle of Trinity United Church of Christ one day and be baptized.”
Traditionally, Christianity teaches that baptism is a sacrament involving the use of water to signify acceptance of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Since Obama was not born and baptized a Christian, in order to become a Christian he had to enter into the sacrament of baptism some time later in life. In this regard, Obama does not indicate anywhere in his books that he came into contact with what Christians regard as the “living water.” Instead, he says that, in his baptism, he made “a choice,” knelt beneath a cross, and “felt God’s spirit beckoning.” He said, “I submitted myself to His will, and dedicated myself to discovering His truth.” This sounds like a powerful experience of some kind but it is not what Christians regard as baptism.
Indeed, Muslims could join Jeremiah Wright’s church without giving up their Muslim faith. And while Obama accepted Christianity, in the sense of calling himself a Christian, there is no evidence that he was ever officially baptized into Wright’s church.
Edward Klein’s unauthorized biography of Barack Obama, The Amateur: Barack Obama in The White House says that Wright told Obama, “Well, you already know the Muslim piece of your background. You studied Islam, didn’t you?” Obama replied, “Yeah, Rev, I studied Islam. But help me understand Christianity, because I already know Islam.”
Asked if he converted Obama from Islam to Christianity, Wright said, “That’s hard to tell. I think I convinced him that it was okay for him to make a choice in terms of who he believed Jesus is. And I told him it was really okay and not a putdown of the Muslim part of his family or his Muslim friends.”
The phrase “That’s hard to tell” is mind-boggling, in view of Obama’s claim to be a practicing Christian.
When Obama’s statements as President are examined, we find something else curious. The Koran teaches that Jesus was not divine. Obama, in his Easter message this year, spoke of Jesus as “a son of God,” not “the Son of God,” which is what the Christian faith teaches in John 3:16-18.
To add to the mystery, Obama’s pastor for 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, could be described as a “Marxist Christian,” since he gave a speech in which he praised Marxism and faulted the media for claiming that communism and Christianity were somehow opposed to one another.
So we return to where we began: the question regarding Obama is not just whether he is a Muslim but a Marxist, based not only on his attendance at Jeremiah Wright’s unusual church but the influence exercised over him during his growing-up years by “Frank” -- Communist Frank Marshall Davis.
Paul Kengor’s book documents that Davis “hammered anti-communist Christians for the sin of being anti-communist.” The anti-communism of the church stood in the way of communist revolution. It either had to be neutralized or taken over from within. It is no surprise, then, that the “Christian” Obama wants to isolate the Catholic Church by mandating rules and regulations on birth control that may force the largest religious denomination to shut down its social services and withdraw from society.
Bishop Daniel R. Jenky declares, “Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care. In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, President Obama€”with his radical, pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path.”
It is a wake-up call for the Catholic Church, which just staged a “Fortnight for Freedom” in opposition to Obama’s policies, because Obama began his career in Chicago doing community organizing with the support of the church. Obama got a majority of the Catholic vote in 2008. The Catholic Church needs to examine how Obama and other Marxists have been using the church for their own purposes. Some Catholic priests are openly saying they will go to jail to resist Obama’s policies.
While there is no evidence that Obama ever specifically rejected Islam, it is more significant that he never rejected Marxism. As communist defector Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa tells me, “€¦President Obama should have no reason to hide his Marxist upbringing. Unless he is still a Marxist, and is not able to defend it.” He says about our July 19 event: “I hope this conference will be a turning point in our political life. I hope that its speakers and some of the participants who have lived in the sanctum sanctorum of Marxist countries, as I did, will help the United States understand that Marxism is indefensible.”
