No Wonder the Post Hid Obama´s Red Mentor

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 5/16/2019 6:03:40 AM

In August 2008, back when it mattered, the Washington Post ran a 10,000-word article by its Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Maraniss titled, “Though Obama Had to Leave to Find Himself, It Is Hawaii That Made His Rise Possible.” For reasons that will soon become clear, Maraniss should have excused himself from this assignment once he discovered the identity of the man in Hawaii who made that rise possible. Barack Obama referred to this man in his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, as “Frank.” If there was any mystery to Frank’s identity, Gerald Horne, a leftist scholar from the University

A good rehash by Cashill of Obie´s upbringing and mentoring by Communist party member Frank Marshall Davis. The movie, "2016: Obama´s America" touches on Obie´s relationship with Davis and Obama´s questionable birthplace. Between this great conspiracy to conceal Obie´s past and the deep state´s coverup of colluding with Russia are the two greatest conspiracies to ever be put on the American people. And thanks to a complicit and evil msm, the American people drank the cool aid both times. I hope we can continue to recover from these travesties.

Obama was a plant, a true Manchurian Candidate. His goal was always to fundamentally destabilize the U.S. using tactics any 3rd world despot would resort to. Silencing the press (or actually enjoying conspiracy of cooperation with many members and outlets), illegally directing law-enforcement branches of the gvt. to harras and spy upon individuals and organizations, and fomenting division within our ranks. Remember his remarks about the Cambridge police when his buddy Henry Louis Gates was arrested for failing to comply with an officer´s request for ID? Or in the Travon Martin case "If I had a son..." There is little doubt that Obama knew everything going on with Crossfire Hurricane (the cute name they gave to the Russia collusion hoax). Lisa Page even admitted it in one of her texts to her lover Strozk "POTUS wants to know everything we´re doing". The whole thing is beyond the pale, and the 2 yr Mueller investigation has yielded no evidence of ANYTHING except innuendo. Please, if there is a just God, let us see Barack Obama brought to justice for the treasonous snake he really is.

Democrats voted for Obama not in spite of his communist (and islamist) sympathies, but precisely because of them. His true colors were never red, white and blue, they were always red and green. It couldn´t have been more obvious.

We all knew that BO didn´t want the USA to succeed. It was obvious to all but the Media.

The more we read now and when we compare his actions and reasoning, it even more apparent that he´s a wanna be Communist and he failed.

He didn´t have the knowledge to know that his Commie pipe dreams wouldn´t work against the USA Freedom Machine.

The BEST thing BO did was give us President Trump!

And look at the current crop of snakes running for prez; they may have all been born here, but are they all not the same as bo? Communists, not socialists, everyone of them. BO was to be the first in a long line of dictators elected to destroy this country. He was supposed to weaken it while no one could say anything to stop him. Racist. Then, hillary was to have her turn and no one could say anything to stop her. Sexist. Since hillary couldn´t get it done, they´ve moved on to number three. Homo, LGBQTuvwxyz, or pervert (America is not ready), because no one will be able to say anything. What would they call us then?

The communists in the US have been in plain sight since well before WWII. They remain in plain sight but we remain in denial. I believe Whittaker Chambers when after his defection he wrote that American communists were not simply looking for a collective version of the US but in fact loyal to the Soviet Union.

What do you suppose happened to all of those people after the fall of the USSR? Did their religious belief in communism simply fade away, their very identity? I think not. There is a bonafide communist fifth column in the US and Obama is part of it.

Connect the dots believe your own eyes and observations. Stop allowing the communists to win the language war. Even self identifying conservatives make use of the term MccArthyism without the slightest hint that they are perpetuating communist propaganda.

FDR´s right hand Harry Hopkins, a communist. His #2 man in the treasure Harry Dexter White, a communist, Lauchlin Currie,a communist. Alger Hiss instrumental in establishing the UN, a negotiator for FDR at Yalta, a Soviet agent and of course a communist. George Racey Jordan noticed that he was schlepping nuclear secrets off to Stalin under the Hopkins led Lend Lease program.

They didn´t go away. We have been conned.

When Obama´s many shocking truths come out, today´s gaggle of democrat deviants will look like a church group having a picnic on a Sunday afternoon.

Seeing what little damage Obama could perpetrate, given eight years and having all of the background tools of the US government gives me great faith in the good people of this country. He had the potential to make us a bigger version of Venezuela and he failed.

#9 is right on. When the USSR fell the files of the Comintern were opened up to researchers and several books were published including the excellent "The Secret World of American Communism." Fact: the democrat party was specifically chosen in the 30s as the host for the USSR´s efforts to undermine the US. My only disagreement is FDR being a communist per se. The source I cited thinks that his actions were more of a NE US progressive philosophy rather than cooperation to turn the country over to the Soviets. His advisors, though, is a different story.

What´s really frightening is that this dip stick got elected twice even while he was destroying...I mean "transforming" the country.

That means that roughly 50% of the American electorate, which is still out there lurking by the way, was indifferent to how much he hated America. That´s truly scary and a testament to the inroads made by the Communists who morphed into the modern democrat party.

Yet we all know that our current "news" cabal is an active element in leftist society, intent on forcing socialism and authoritarianism on us.

And now we have another man running for the presidency who has admitted his parents were marxists. Mayor Peter Buttigieg. you have to know he has been indoctrinated from the moment he was born that communism is the answer to the world´s problems. I´d worry more about his communist background that the fact that he is a homosexual.

#9 - - Very brilliant.

The FDR and HST administrations were crawling with communist traitors - - evil people who were actually on the payroll of the sadistic mass murderer Stalin - - and working feverishly to turn this country over to his brutal communism.

And yet today - - even good-hearted people believe that Sen. McCarthy was the villain - - and the traitorous commies were the victims.

Very frustrating - - but all of us must continue to expose and preach the truth about these evil people - - whenever and wherever we can.

Jack Cashill deserves not just the Pulitzer but also the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his investigative work on Obama, including not just the influence of Frank Marshall Davis but also the brilliant literary forensics exposing Bill Ayers (terrorist and communist too) as the true author of "Dreams From My Father". He puts the MSM to shame.

Obama had all the makings of a communist and was groomed and placed when the time was right. The problem with Obama and his eventual failure was he was lazy, shiftless and ignorant (not smart at all) he had to be handled. All of this was evident by his vacations and constant golfing. Obama wasn´t ruthless enough thus his failure. The mind of Obama was telling by his actions blacks elevated, homosexuals given notice and much more but it was all carried out with his ´pen and phone´. Hillary Clinton was to be Obama´s extension but failed miserable and beaten by Trump. That was the reason President Trump could undo most of Obama´s actions in his first six months in office.
This is not news or shocking to read about Obama but there will be more not surprising stories of the hapless taupe dupe, Obama.

Even with all the racial and other damage Obama did to America, we still dodged a YUUUGE bullet. He´s a full-fledged Red-Diaper Baby. The Communists have been trying since way before the Cold War to overtake America, by whatever means necessary. They play the long game, which is a tactic American leaders have yet to learn.

This is a great essay. I will compliment Jack on it when I next see him.

Last year we were discussing the leftist´s woeful, willful ignorance. Jack pointed out, "We know all that we know and everything that they know, they know nothing of what we know."

Most leftists are willfully ignorant....if they weren´t, they´d be conservative.

If I´m not mistaken, Obama didn´t campaign as a transformational candidate, or to fundamentally transform the United States - he kept those things silent until his speech in Grant Park in Illinois.

He also coyly played with the media, by holding townhall-sytle conference calls that made it seem they were gaining access, but were actually being used by the campaign, which they confirmed, since he took the questions by phone which let them craft their message, and manage any follow-up questions.

It was all part of the "show".

It´s hard to believe that a gay, communist and muslim who we know nothing about was promoted and elected to the Presidency twice. He has never released any of his records, so we know little about who financed and backed his political rise to power. The MSM is not interested in knowing any of this, because they were willing participants in the conspiracy to elect him. Just as they promote hitlery, knowing her past is littered with dead bodies and corruption.

The MSM is the enemy, as President Trump has said, feeding us leftist propaganda and hiding the truth.

#11, Wallace, FDR´s VP, was a Communist, and Hoover knew it, and threatened to publicize it if Wallace were not removed from the ballot for the last election, where many understood that FDR´s failing health meant it likely that the VP would inherit the White House.

And so, a nobody Senator from Missouri became the President. And Stalin was JUST BARELY kept from having a man in the US Presidency by patriot J. Edgar Hoover. And look at the FBI leadership these days. Comey is pretty much a Commie, too. I wonder about Wray.

It is the height of irony that they accused Trump of colluding with Russia. As usual, the Dems falsely accuse Repubs of doing what the Dems actually ARE doing.

How frustrating it must be for Mr. Cashill, and others like him, who know the facts, but see them consistently distorted and dismissed by politicians, journalists, and the public.

Perhaps it is because so many of our public servants and information specialists, e.g., David Maraniss, are the associates or progeny of card-carrying Communists.

I believe DNA evidence will prove that Frank Marshall Davis was Obama´s DNA donor. Obama´s mother was married to an abusive drunk & probably sought comfort with Mr Davis, a bisexual communist who heavily influenced young Barry. The elusive truth about Obama may actually dispel the Kenyan Muslim angle and replace it with a gay commie angle.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

"I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote.

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

Headed Towards 'Atlas Shrugged'?

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
