Posted on 02/23/2015 7:23:26 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Yesterdays news became big news on the Fox News Channel last week when former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani brought up the name of President Barack Obamas childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. It was almost seven years to the day when we published our seminal piece about Davis, Obamas Communist Mentor.
Davis was a member of the Communist Party and a suspected Soviet espionage agent. He was included in the FBIs security index, meaning that Davis could be arrested or detained in the event of a national emergency. The FBI file on Davis documents his anti-white and pro-Soviet views, infiltration of the Hawaii Democratic Party, and other activities.
Davis also wrote an autobiographical and pornographic sex novel, Sex Rebel, disclosing that he had sex with a young girl and engaged in shocking and bizarre sexual activities.
Giulianis public identification of Davis and discussion of his role in grooming a young Barack Obama marks the first time, in my memory, that a top Republican has ever mentioned the Davis-Obama relationship. It was done in the context of Fox News Megyn Kelly of questioning how Giuliani could dare ask whether Obama loves America.
If the Republicans had brought this up during the 2008 campaign, Obama might have been defeated and the country could have been spared the last six years of progressive hope and change. The Davis-Obama relationship is something so damaging and corrupt that its public airing would have raised questions about the Democratic Partys vetting of Obama and the direction of the Democratic Party itself.
However, Republican operative Karl Rove was warning Republicans not to accuse Obama of being a socialist. He said such a charge would generate a negative backlash. The result in 2012 was another Obama victory.
Now that it has become apparent to more and more people that Obama is not a traditional liberal Democrat and is, in fact, a Marxist with Muslim sympathies, a figure such as Giuliani feels compelled to speak out. So lets take a look at what Giuliani said.
I dont feel it. I dont feel this love of America, Giuliani said, talking about Obama. Im talking about a man who grew up under the influence of Frank Marshall Davis who was a member of the Communist Party, who he refers to over and over in his book, who was a tremendous critic of the United States.
Kelly countered that Obama was raised in part by his grandparents. His grandfather served in World War II, his grandmother worked in a munitions plant to help the nation during World War II. I mean, to suggest he was raised by people who dont love America or didnt help him learn to love America.
Giuliani argued that his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist. He added, You can fight in World War II, and then you introduce someone to a Communist and the young boy gets
After Kelly interjected that its a political world view. Its not a hatred for the country, Giuliani responded, Communism wasnt hatred for America?
Giuliani is correct about the Davis influence over Obama and the role that the grandfather played in picking Davis as a mentor.
But when Giuliani notes that Obama refers to Davis over and over in his book, Dreams from My Father, its important to point out that Davis was not identified as Frank Marshall Davis in that book. Instead, Obama identified him merely as Frank. The rest of the story was put together by anti-communist researcher Trevor Loudon, and we confirmed the identification with another source in Hawaii who was a close friend of Davis.
Even more of the story was put together by Paul Kengor in his authoritative book on Davis, The Communist. It appears that Davis was an influence over Obama for about nine full years, until Obama was 18 and went off to college. Obama went off to college and, by his own admission, would attend socialist conferences and pick Marxist professors as his friends.
This relationship alone would have disqualified Obama from getting low-level federal employment. The loophole in our system is that background checks are not required for federal elected officials. Our founders counted on a free press to review the fitness of those running for office.
When former Obama adviser David Axelrod talks about Obama being free from major scandals, he is ignoring the biggest scandal of allhow Obama concealed his Marxist upbringing and relationship with Davis. Axelrod of course was part of the cover-up. When Frank was identified as Davis, the Obama campaign insisted he was just a civil rights activist.
As we reported at the time, news organizations such as the Associated Press, The Washington Post, Newsweek and even Fox News ignored or downplayed Daviss communist sympathies.
As Giuliani indicated, there are other influences on Obama that help explain his anti-Americanism. These include the community organizing philosophy of Saul Alinsky, his pastor Jeremiah Wright and the communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
Giuliani clearly feels, at this stage in Obamas presidency, that some things have to be said openly for the sake of the country. A former crime-busting U.S. Attorney who was mayor of New York City at the time of 9/11, Giuliani fears for the future of our country. But its not just the fate of America that is at stake. It is clear that Obama has no love for Americas traditional allies, such as Israel. Hence, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to America to plead his case personally. He is afraid that Obama wants to make a deal that will allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.
Now that Giuliani has publicly raised some inconvenient truths about Obama, the progressives and their media allies will naturally scream and cry McCarthyism. Strangely taking this tack, Fox News Kelly wondered if Giulianis comments about Obama had damaged the Republican brand. The Republican brand will only be damaged by an inability to face facts and confront and expose anti-Americanism at the highest levels of the United States government. It is shocking that it has taken this long for the evidence to emerge publicly on a national basis on Fox News and other channels.
This controversy will help determine what direction the Republicans will take. The Washington Posts Dana Milbank, who has made it his job to protect Obama from the fallout from major scandals, was quick to label Giulianis remarks about Obama as stupid. He also attacked Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker as spineless for saying Giuliani can speak for himself, and not directly challenging what the former mayor had said
What Scott Walker did ought to disqualify him as a serious presidential contender, wrote Milbank.
This is a signal from one of Obamas best friends in the media that the information unearthed by Giuliani is of the blockbuster variety. Giuliani went for the jugular and hit a gusher.
The first thing Republicans can do is simply challenge the media to report on the Davis FBI file. They have been avoiding it for over six years.
Congress could also investigate Obamas communist connections, which stretch from Hawaii to Chicago, and question the FBI about what they knew, if anything, about the Obama-Davis relationship. The reestablishment of House and Senate internal security committees, including a loyalty program for U.S. officials to eliminate security risks, should be considered.
Republicans could remind people that it was anti-communist Democratic President Harry Truman who started the first loyalty program. He issued executive order 9835 establishing the program in 1947.
The executive order said that each employee of the Government of the United States is endowed with a measure of trusteeship over the democratic processes which are at the heart and sinew of the United States, and declared that the presence within the Government service of any disloyal or subversive person constitutes a threat to our democratic processes
It is time for a background check on the President of the United States. Does he pass the loyalty test?
Zero’s sycophants are THRILLED to learn that zero was groomed by a communist. Any true conservative already knew all this.
This was out there for anybody to bring up, Rudy just decided He would now. We have been screaming about it for years. I doubt anyone on this board was not aware of his hanging out with all these people.
The MSM has hopefully been given a choice.
Cover Rudy’s question in an effort to discredit him or cover what Rudy said.
Their editorial heads will be exploding on this issue.
They know that 0bama will be gone soon and their “new hero” Hillary has made the same comments.
Hillary is in charge of the message from here on out.
She needs to throw 0bama under the bus to stay consistent.
Too little, too late.
I thought it was common knowledge, and even if it wasn’t I doubt this revelation to the masses would have changed the election results.
You have to pinch yourself - a Marxist radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshiped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently its considered impolite to say so. - Melanie Philips, The Spectator (UK) 10/14/08
Sure, but notice how no democrat or CPUSA member will speak openly about it. If they’re so thrilled, why can’t they express themselves?
All the more reason to keep bringing it up.
If not, then why does Obama and the entire communist media cover it up with tactics of ridicule and lying?
Absolutely, let it hit him from all sides.
“Radical In Chief” by Stanley Kurtz thoroughly documents Obama’s communist origins and associations.
Here’s a post (and link), from an older FR thread, with a great FMD/Commie 0bammie recap....
The Communist. Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obamas Mentor
I must note that it was also through this group that Davis would work with Robert Taylor, who just happened to be the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett.
FP: Thats remarkable. Valerie Jarrett today is Obamas right-hand woman in the White House.
Kengor: Yes, and its even more eerie than that. Frank Marshall Davis, Obamas mentor, also worked with Vernon Jarrett in these circles. Vernon Jarrett was Valeries father-in-law. And its worse still. Davis, Obamas mentor, also worked with Harry and David Canter, two other Chicago communists. The Canters mentored a young man named David Axelrod in Chicago in the 1970s. So, the troika thats arguably running America todayObama and Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrodall have common bonds in Chicagos communist circles from the 1940s. Their mentors knew each other.
I know this is incredible, but its true. You couldnt make this up. No one would believe it. Were being governed by ghosts from Chicagos Communist Party glory years.
FP: Are there other people that Frank Marshall Davis worked with in Chicago who have relevance today?
Kengor: Oh, yes, I could go on and on. At the Chicago Star, the communist newspaper for which he wrote and was the founding editor-in-chief (1946-48), Davis regularly shared the op-ed page with Senator Claude Red Pepper, who at that exact time was writing the bill to nationalize healthcare in the United Stateswhich Davis himself advocated in his columns. By the way, Peppers chief of staff, who wrote that bill, was Charles Kramer, who we now know was working for the KGB under the codename mole.
Another Davis comrade at the Star was William Patterson, who actually mentored Frank Marshall Davis and was probably more important than any other figure in bringing Davis into the Party.
FP: William Patterson was a hardcore communist.
Kengor: Yes, and among his legacies is the Kremlins Peoples Friendship University, which he helped plan in the 1960s. Peoples Friendship University became better known as the Patrice Lumumba Friendship University, a Kremlin grooming school for third-world revolutionaries. This university, the third largest in the USSR, schooled some of the worlds leading terrorists. Distinguished alumni include Irans Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, whose doctoral thesis became a book, The Other Side: The Secret Relations between Nazism and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement. According to Abbas, only a few hundred thousand Jews were killed in the Holocaust, and those mostly through Nazi-Zionist collusion. Other proud alumni include Carlos the Jackal, Mohamed Boudia, and Henry Ruiz, Nicaraguan Sandinista commander and economic planner-in-chief.
Amazing....all of the Commie *dots* connected.
The author of the book (Kengor) was on Hannity, tonight.
i worry more about his muslism 12th imam ambitions. does he think he is the 12th imam?
I actually heard today that Bambi gave a little talk in Bill Ayers living room!
Do you think anyone has a video tape? Maybe 60 minutes might wanna do a segment.
The commie network is wide and deeply embedded in media, academia, and government. They have institutionalized much of their agenda.
They were probably there filming it
zero should head out to Hawaii to avoid all that’s coming for him the next 10 days.
You’ll love this one:
“The column itself had appeared in the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Evening Independent of Nov. 6, but it was the work of a veteran newspaperman who at the time was working for the prestigious Chicago Tribune and whose work was syndicated nationally. (1)
So far as I know, this 1979 column has not previously been brought to light, but it certainly should be because it broke some very interesting news about the rumored billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions. The columnist quoted a black San Francisco lawyer who said, Its not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states.
Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.
Al-Mansour told Jarrett that he had presented the proposed special aid program to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz in September 1979, and that the first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in December. Maybe so, but I looked high and wide in newspapers in 1979 and 1980 for any other stories about this aid package funded by OPEC and never found it verified.
You would think that a program to spend $20 million per year for 10 years to aid 10,000 minority students each year, including blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, Asians and native Americans would be referred to somewhere other than one obscure 1979 column, but I havent found any other word of it.
Maybe the funding materialized, maybe it didnt, but whats particularly noteworthy is that this black Islamic lawyer who for several years [had] urged the rich Arab kingdoms to cultivate stronger ties to Americas blacks by supporting black businesses and black colleges and giving financial help to disadvantaged students was also the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.
That tale had surfaced in 2008 when Barack Obama was a candidate for president and one of the leading black politicians in the country Percy Sutton of New York told an interviewer on a Manhattan TV news show that he had been introduced to Obama by a friend who was raising money for him. The friends name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas. He is the principal adviser to one of the worlds richest men. He told me about Obama. (2)
This peculiar revelation engendered a small hubbub in 2008, but was quickly dismissed by the Obama campaign as the ditherings of a senile old man. I dont believe President Obama himself ever denied the story personally, and no one has explained how Sutton came up with this elaborate story about Khalid al-Mansour if it had no basis in fact, and in any case al-Mansour no longer denies it. (3)
Back in 2008, while actually supporting Hillary Clinton in the New York primary, Percy Sutton was interviewed on TV and said that he thought Barack Obama was nonetheless quite impressive. He also revealed that he had first heard about Obama 20 years previously in a letter where al-Mansour wrote, there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends up there because you used to go up there to speak. Would you please write a letter in support of him?
Sutton concluded in the interview, I wrote a letter of support of him to my friends at Harvard, saying to them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly.
Until now, there really has been no context within which to understand the Sutton story or to buttress it as a reliable account other than the reputation of Sutton himself as one of the top leaders of the black community in Manhattan himself a noted attorney, businessman and politician. But the new discovery of the 1979 column that established Khalid al-Mansours interest in creating a fund to give financial help to disadvantaged students does provide a clue that he might indeed along with his patron, Arab Prince Alwaleed bin Talal have taken an interest in the genius Barack Obama.
It also might be considered more than coincidence that the author of that 1979 newspaper column was from Chicago, where Barack Obama settled in 1986 a few years after his stint at Columbia University. It is certainly surprising that the author of that column was none other than Vernon Jarrett, the future (and later former) father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, who ultimately became the consigliere of the Obama White House.
It is also noteworthy that Vernon Jarrett was one of the best friends and a colleague of Frank Marshall Davis, the former Chicago journalist and lifelong communist who moved to Hawaii in the late 1940s and years later befriended Stanley and Madelyn Dunham and their daughter Stanley Ann, the mother of Barack Obama. (4)
And to anyone who has the modicum of a spark of curiosity, it is surely intriguing that Frank Davis took an active role in the rearing of young Barack from the age of 10 until he turned 18 and left Hawaii for his first year of college at Occidental College in Los Angeles. (5)
It is also at least suggestive that Obama began that college education as a member of the highly international student body of Occidental College in 1979, the same year when Vernon Jarrett was touting the college aid program being funded by OPEC and possibly Prince Alwaleed. The fact that President Obama has studiously avoided releasing records of his college years is suggestive also, but has no evidentiary value in the present discussion. (6)
The nature of Vernon Jarretts relationship to Khalid al-Mansour is likewise uncertain, but it is very likely they had known each other as leaders of the black civil-rights movement for many years. Under his previous name of Donald Warden, al-Mansour had founded the African American Association in the Bay Area in the early 1960s. He had also helped inspire the Black Panther Party through his association with black-power leaders such as Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Seale, of course, had a famous association with Chicago later, when he was part of the Chicago Eight charged with conspiracy and inciting to riot at the Democratic National Convention in 1968. (7)
In any case, it doesnt matter if Vernon Jarrett and Khalid al-Mansour had a personal relationship or not. For some reason, al-Mansour had used Jarrett as the messenger to get out the word about his efforts to funnel Arab oil money to black students and minority colleges at about the same time that Barack Obama began his college career. That doesnt mean either Jarrett or al-Mansour knew Obama at that time, but eight years later when Obama was a rising star in Chicago, a friend of Bill Ayers and Valerie Jarrett, it is much more likely that he did indeed have the assistance of very important people in his meteoric rise. The words of Percy Sutton about what al-Mansour told him regarding Obama certainly have the ring of truth:
His introduction was there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends back there... Would you please write a letter in support of him? (Thats before Obama decided to run.) ... and he interjected the advice that Obama had passed the requirements, had taken and passed the requirements necessary to get into Harvard and become president of the Law Review. Thats before he ever ran for anything. And I wrote a letter in support of him to my friends at Harvard, saying to them that I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly... (2)
What possible significance could all this have? We may never know, but Vernon Jarrett, back in 1979, thought that OPECs intention to fund black and minority education would have huge political ramifications. As Jarrett wrote:
The question of financial aid from the Arabs could raise a few extremely interesting questions both inside and outside the black community. If such contributions are large and sustained, the money angle may become secondary to the sociology and politics of such an occurrence. (1)
He was, of course, right.
As Jarrett suggests, any black institutions and presumably individuals who became beholden to Arab money might be expected to continue the trend of American new black advocacy for a homeland for the Palestinians and presumably for other Islamic and Arabic interests in the Middle East. For that reason, if for no other, the question of how President Obamas college education was funded is of considerably more than academic interest.

3) The National and International Roundtable posted a one-hour interview with Khalid al-Mansour and other African American Association leaders on the Internet just last week. In the introduction of al-Mansour, the black host notes that his guest had been a patron of Barack Obama and had recommended him for admission to Harvard Law School. You will note that al-Mansour does not correct him.
