HUGE: Evidence Surfaces That Obama Was a Member Of The New Party

I knew, and had previously reported that Obama had actively sought out, and received an endorsement for his 1996 state Senate candidacy, from this radical organization, back in May. Now, documentary evidence has surfaced that he was indeed, a member. The American Thinker has the scoop:

The New Party was a radical left organization, established in 1992, to amalgamate far left groups and push the United States into socialism by forcing the Democratic Party to the left. It was an attempt to regroup the forces on the left in a new strategy to take power, burrowing from within. The party only lasted until 1998, when its strategy of “fusion” failed to withstand a Supreme Court ruling, but after, but the membership, including Barack Obama, continued to move the Democrats leftward with spectacular success.

Actually, according to Google, The New Party is still around.

Here’s how Discover The Networks describes the organization:

Co-founded in 1992 by Daniel Cantor (a former staffer for Jesse Jackson‘s 1988 presidential campaign) and Joel Rogers (a sociology and law professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison), the New Party was a Marxist political coalition whose objective was to endorse and elect leftist public officials — most often Democrats. The New Party’s short-term objective was to move the Democratic Party leftward, thereby setting the stage for the eventual rise of new Marxist third party.

Most New Party members hailed from the Democratic Socialists of America and the militant organization ACORN. The party’s Chicago chapter also included a large contingent from the Committees of Correspondence, a Marxist coalition of former Maoists, Trotskyists, and Communist Party USA members.

See Human Events for a full explanation of how “fusion” (which the Supreme Court ultimately ruled unconstitutional) was to work.

Web archives that prove that Obama was a member of the socialist New Party can be found at Politically Drunk On Power.

Kudos to Politically Drunk who did an awesome job of digging this up, (for a drunk guy).


More at Ace of Spades HQ. He broke out the flaming skull, so you know this is big.

Ace asks:

Bleg: Can someone — multiple people, really — start backing up the pages Politically Drunk found, before they are disappeared?

October 1996 Update :
Running to Win : The Key Races
New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races:Arkansas: The Little Rock New Party has a full slate of candidates up for election in November. LRNP steering committee member Michael Booker is running unopposed for re-election to the Arkansas State House. Two NP members – Paul Kelly and Genevieve Stewart – are running for at-large (city-wide) city council positions. And in a head-to-head battle between the New Party and the conservative right, NP member Jayne Cia faces the Arkansas state chair of Empower America (Jack Kemp and Bill Bennett’s organization) for a Justice of the Peace (county board) position.

Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).

Maryland: Two New Party members are up for school board seats this fall: Doyle Niemann in Prince George’s County and Dan Parr in Montgomery County.

Minnesota: Despite the successful effort by conservative Democratic Party forces to deny Progressive Minnesota the opportunity to use fusion this fall, the state legislative candidates that sought our nomination still see themselves as Progressive Minnesota candidates, and we’re still backing them in the general election. PM/NP endorsed candidates include Ellen Anderson, Karen Clark, Andy Dawkins, Linda Higgins, and Sandy Pappas. Progressive Minnesota has also endorsed Green Party State Assembly candidate Cam Gordon.

New York: The New Party of Long Island is backing three candidates for office this Fall: State Assembly candidate Tom DiNapoli and Congressional candidates Carolyn McCarthy and Nora Bredes. NP members collected the necessary signatures to nominate progressive Democratic Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli on the New Party line, making this the first Democratic Party/New Party fusion effort. The chapter is supporting a major voter registration drive in African-American and Hispanic communities in McCarthy’s district.

Washington, DC: DC New Democracy/NP is backing ten candidates for Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (Almedith Bass-Williams, John Jordan, Laine McRaney, Henry Fernandez, Todd Mosley, Daniel Rosenberg, Gerry Lorentz, Will Hill, Dennis Dolinger, Violet Hewlett), neighborhood-based councils that represent community concerns to the mayor and city council. In addition, DCND is recruiting candidates to run write-in campaigns in some of the 80-odd ANC races with no candidate.

Wisconsin: In addition to the four Progressive Milwaukee-backed candidates running for state office (Spencer Coggs, Dale Dulberger, Gwendolynne Moore, Johnnie Morris-Tatum, see Sept Update), two New Party members in Fox Valley are running for the state assembly. Progressive Fox Valley founder and chair Tony Palmeri is in a surprisingly close race against an four-term incumbent conservative Republican in Oshkosh. New Party and AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees) member Corky Van Handel is also running for the state assembly in a nearby district. Both are running as Democrats.

Membership Growth

September was the New Party’s all-time high month for membership recruitment – more than 1000 new members joined! Welcome aboard.As always, onward and upward…

  8. McCain and Palin are promoting terroism by their new tactics of campaign strategy. Allowing hate to be used is bad politics with all of the assasinated presidents and leaders this country has lost ,and they need to be ashamed. It is dirty dangerous politics and needs to be stopped immediately. John and Robert Kennedy,Abe Lincoln,the attempt on Ronald Reagen and Dr. King are just a few of the victims of terroism in this country ,and the Republican party owes these families an apology .They owe Barack Obama and his family and party an apology as well. They owe this nation an apology


  9. They owe this nation an apology

    They most certainly do not. They are doing the public a service because the MSM isn’t reporting on Obama’s past, which is supposed to be their job.

    People need to understand what they’re getting into. Do they want a full blown Socialist in the White House?

    Obama has spent his whole adult life hanging around extreme radical characters, because that is who he is.

    You are listening to what he says in his speeches and at his website. I am looking at his record, and all of his past associations. Because he is a shameless liar, you can’t take seriously what he says.

  12. What is your point?

    I said, “According to Google”, meaning it still has an active website.

    Obama is absolutely, based on overwhelming evidence, at the very least, a Marxist. He was voted by the non-partisan National Journal to be our most liberal Senator. That puts him to the left of Bernie Sanders of the Socialist Party.

    What evidence do you have that he isn’t?

    His political speeches? His website? What?
