President Obama, in the 1990s, was a member of the far left New Party. In addition to that, he reportedly signed a “contract”, promising his public support and affiliation with the party while in office.
This information was garnered from evidence obtained in the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society. And, the National Review is in possession of a well-documented paper trail which “definitively establishes” Obama’s membership in the organization.
Stanley Kurtz, writing for the National Review writes:
Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Party’s Chicago chapter read as follows:
Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.”
Moreover, a roster of the New Party’s Chicago chapter, according to the publication, listed Obama as a member in early 1997 and referenced his joining date as January 11, 1996. Also mentioned in the publication is that in Obama’s third debate with then GOP presidential nominee, John McCain, Obama continued with the fallacy that his only dealings with ACORN was in the representation of the radical group in a National Voter Registration Act lawsuit.
Kurtz, back in October 2008, wrote in the National Review, about Obama’s membership in the New Party:
In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.”
Obama’s denials aside, his ties to ACORN are now blatantly obvious and are further illuminated in Kurtz’s book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism. Kurtz calls attention to the fact that “the revelation in 2008 that Obama had joined an ACORN-controlled, leftist third party could have been damaging indeed, and coming clean about his broader work with ACORN might easily have exposed these New Party ties. Because the work of ACORN and the New Party often intersected with Obama’s other alliances, honesty about his ties to either could have laid bare the entire network of his leftist political partnerships.”
For those not familiar with the New Party, you need to understand why Obama felt the need to distance himself from it and how it reinforces some beliefs that he is a socialist:
The New Party was a political organization founded in 1992 by Daniel Cantor and Joel Rogers, with the objective of electing leftist or socialist individuals to public office in several states; the goal was to move the Democratic Party further to the left, with the ultimate objective of creating a major third party whose platform is Marxism.
Daniel Cantor, a former staffer with Jesse Jackson during his 1988 presidential campaign, and sociology/law professor Joel Rogers from the University of Wisconsin (Madison) created the New party, drawing many members from the Democratic Socialists of America and the civil organization group ACORN; the chapter in Chicago included former Maoists, Trotskyists, and Communist Party USA members who had gathered together under the group name “Committees of Correspondence“. Among their most prominent members was Barack Obama, first picked to succeed Illinois state senator Alice Palmer while in the home of Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers in 1995.”
Other prominent members of the New Party include:
This is another example of how the mainstream media failed Americans in 2008. While they were rifling though the filing cabinets of Wasilla, Alaska City Hall, Obama was telling lie after lie and no one was calling him on it.
