By The Right Scoop


Stanley Kurtz at National Review has uncovered evidence that Obama had joined the very socialist New Party, which Kurtz describes as “deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism”:

Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.

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.

Rush weighed in on this noting that if something like this came up about Romney, the mainstream media would be all over it:

    The scary part isn’t that people may not know he was part of a Socialist political party. The scary part is that most people wouldn’t even CARE if he were.

    • NYGino

      The really scary part is that most people have no idea what a Socialist party is.

      • FutureOnePercent

        Haha, I suppose that’s why they wouldn’t care.

      • marketcomp

        Well people should have a pretty good idea what the socialist party is since we have a President who has forced laws on us and since we have been living it for the last 3 1/2 years.

        That’s CORRECT

        Most people on the street think its the same as a

        Barack Kardashian is BOTH a SOCIALIST and a SOCIALITE

        It all makes sense now !!!

    Move along, there’s nothing to se… HEY! What’s that over there?!

    • Nukeman60

      I’m sure that if we discovered a video of Obama actually admitting he killed his grandmother to shut her up before the ’08 elections, just for a ratings boost, the MSM would bring out their latest dirt on Romney, that he had the audacity in High School to rent a limo for his Senior prom. Ugh, how could he!

      Romney on page one, Obama on page 16, with a qualifier about how Bush did stuff too.

      • FutureOnePercent

        That greedy one percenter had the gall to get a limo?! While others were suffering through no fault of their own!?

        Where is his sense of social responsibility!

      • las1

        Yeah… it may just be that Zero did a little more than just throw granny under the bus in his book “Dreams From My Old Man”. You may be on to something there Nuke. And I just bet that the LA Times has that video in a vault just beside the video of Obama hating on Israel and praising Rashid Khalidi.

    Obama a socialist? Say it ain’t so. This is the worst kept secret in the world. Obama has ruled as a socialist since the first day he got into office. The “Stimulus” and ObamaCare are both clear evidence of this as well. I hope people will start listening to this, because if Obama gets a second term we WILL end up just like France, which is going the way of Greece as we speak. Just shows that our last chance to save America is in November. Make your vote count. The life of this nation depends on it.

    • sDee

      You are highlighting just another example of the propaganda land we live in. Obama has ruled America for nearly for 4 years on Marxist principles adapted to state capitalism. His record is solid.

      If people cannot grasp that reality, how are they going to grasp some decades old stories about a third party in Illinois? If the media won’t admit his marxist governance, why are they bring out all this old news? Something stinks.

  • kong1967

    It’s all good to uncover whatever we can, but nothing we find will change anything.

    • hbnolikeee

      you may be wrong. i believe even the sheeple don’t want a socialist as president. if they did duh bumbler would have been bragging about it during his 2008 campaign.

      • FutureOnePercent

        He did brag about it, but people were too stupid to understand what he meant.

        “I’m going to give you all free healthcare!”

        No one stopped to ask “How?”

        • PVG

          Just another way to redistribute wealth and grab more power.

        • las1

          as well as …

          “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”

          • kong1967

            He is so close to achieving it, too. A lot hinges on Obamacare and it’s constitutionality. If it stands the doors are wide open for a socialist nation to emerge.

        • kong1967

          Accept those of us that knew exactly how and that it isn’t free. Lefties don’t care because so many of them believe that the rich have more than enough money to pay for it and they (themselves) also know they WON’T be paying for it.

      • I_am_a_lead_pencil

        “i believe even the sheeple don’t want a socialist as president.”

        As a term only, no.

        As each individual socialist policy advanced, yes.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        He said “we have to spread the wealth around.” Can’t get much more clear than that. I don’t think many people care whether we have a socialist or a commie as president as long as they get their “free stuff”. After all, the last 4 or so generations have been indoctrinated in socialism, so it all sounds cool, hip and trendy to have a socialist president now.

      • kong1967

        Ohhhh, I don’t know about that. I think there are a lot of lefties that want all-out socialism. However, I hope you are right….and could be.

    • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Whitewolf2009

      Depends, but it would have to be something massive. If Rev Wright and Bill Ayers didn’t’ do it, not much will.

      • kong1967

        I’ve come to the conclusion that he could be Hitler with a swastiika on his forehead and they would claim we were insane for calling him a Nazi. He could flat out admit that he was born in Kenya and it wouldn’t make any difference. Corruption is accepted as long as it’s on the left.

  • bindare

    My understanding is that the “New Party” is more Marxist than just Socialist. Somebody please confirm that or correct me with the facts.

  • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Whitewolf2009

    If it came out that Romney was a member of a ultra-conservative group when he was 10 the MSM would be all over it, wall to wall coverage for MONTHS!!! But this comes out about Obama and I bet they don’t even mention it.

    • sjmom

      Would that Romney had been a part of a conservative group because then I would not have any qualms about voting for him.

      • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Whitewolf2009

        I support him because he’s not Obama. 4 more years of Obama and the country would be in terrible shape and probably never recover.

      • Marky_D

        LOL – I was just thinking something similar ”What, he was a member of a conservative group – he sure managed to keep that buried!”.

        Oh well…”Go Romney!”… I guess.

  • mndasher

    How is this just now uncovered? I have seen Obama references his association to the New Party in 2008 months before the election. I just Googled it back then.

    And the media will spin this as “a good thing”.

    No wonder we can’t ever get real details on his past… he’s as dirty as maggots on a corpse.

    Just add this to the very long list of things that should have had Americans out in the streets with torches and pitchforks… LONG ago. He was never vetted and as a result, he is criminally unqualified to be our President. FIRE this amateur poser/liar.

    And the media is complicit. Unbelievable.

    • sjmom

      The media is more than complicit. Maybe the reason they won’t report this is because they also have belonged or currently belong to the New Party. When I listen to some of these people I believe they are more left than liberal.

  • sjmom

    First, if people do not know by now Obama is a Marxist then they are worse off than I thought.

    Second, Romney is already too liberal for me, I did not vote for him in the primary the other day and I’m still thinking about a write in on Election Day.

    Third, someone other than Rush needs to talk about this………….and I am not referring to Sean Hannity and Mark Levin. There has to be one honest mainstream journalist left somewhere. I pray they come forward, and soon.

  • tinker_thinker

    Everything about obama is a deception.

    • sDee

      …..and nothing happens perchance. Including this story.

  • Marky_D

    ”You can’t get to the left of the Democrat party any more”…

    Rush needs to pop over here to Europe, we’ve had this pervasive left wing thinking undermining every apparatus of society and redefining the so called centre ground for decades. We have supposedly right wing ‘conservative’ party MPs that are to the left of most of your democrats.

    That’s not to say there’s anything good to be said about Obama or any other democrat – you guys are dead right to call this c*** out and stamp it out asap. Otherwise, next stop Europe.

    • sDee

      We are facing the inevitable worst case scenario the Founders modeled our Federal Government in anticipation of.

      The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights were designed specifically to curb the centralization of power that provides the life blood that marxist, socialist, leftist, facist and other authoritarian parasites need to survive.

      In this law, the American people have the tool to protect our liberty. If we are too naive, ignorant or foolish to remove those representatives and bureaucrats who attack and fail to defend that which protects essential liberty, we deserve the same inevitable slide toward a Central State.

      • Karl Rogue

        Your second sentence is right on the money. One can’t have a Euro style social democracy under our constitution. I have my fingers crossed that SCOTUS will make that clear by the end of the month, when it strikes down O’care.

        Want Euro-style socialism? You’re going to have to amend the Constitution. Or move.

    One of two things must take place. Either the illegal alien is taken to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. and placed in custody of the United States Marine Corps until his life has expired, OR, the spineless U.S. Congress goes through an “impeachment of the alien,” and expells this intruder/faker from the shores of our America–never allowed to return, under immediate penalty of death. DEATH TO TYRANTS (and those who were complicit in the charade, like his “phony” wife).

  • howardwolf

    Months ago, I had an e-mail exchange with liberals who said I was falling for far right mania when I stated unequivocally that Barack Obama was a socialist. To prove my point I sent them the Merriam-Webster definition of socialism. The contended that he didn’t take over the means of production and that confirmed their argument. I had to point out to them that healthcare is about a sixth of the US economy and that is a very good start. I could well have added the control TARP gave him over GM and Chrysler.

    I have never been a political, but thanks to websites and real information, I am 100% into politics now. So if a teacher and mother in her 40’s can start to wake up, I have faith others will too. Obama…you need to go oh and by the way, the American people don’t like the “wool covered over their eyes.” A collective group of people who believe in justice is a powerful group.
