As Obama makes his life-changing, eye-tearing, and emotional speeches, do we really know what the man’s background is?
America’s Survival, Inc., is doing their investigation of who Obama really is rather than what the media is not reporting.
Two reports came out recently spotlighting Obama’s past: “Communism in Chicago and the Obama Connection” a 36-page report by Cliff Kincaid, president of America’s Survival, and “Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection” a 44-page report by by Herbert Romerstein, who is the Director of The Education and Research Institute Center for Security Research.
In their report, they mentioned that Obama has been in the middle of two international communist networks—one in Hawaii and one in Chicago.
The Hawaii network included communists Frank Marshall Davis, who was Obama’s personal mentor and mentioned in his book, Dreams From My Father, and labor leader Harry Bridges. The network was judged a security threat to the United States and the subject of a congressional hearing on the “Scope of Soviet Activity in the United States,” according to the report.
Kincaid also explores Obama’s connection with Bill Ayers, a member of communist terrorist group the Weather Underground, who helped launched Obama’s political career. He reports that Obama worked for Ayers in a Chicago educational reform program that dispensed millions of dollars of grants.
The reports have an extensive research on Obama’s ties that sheds some light on his campaign..
According to the report, Barack Obama campaign stratageist David Axelrod told Politico’s Ben Smith, “Bill Ayers lives in his neighborhood. Their kids attend the same school…They’re certainly friendly, they know each other, as anyone whose kids go to school together.”
“We are trying to tell the truth about Barack Obama, since there’s nothing on the surface,” says Romerstein, “We are trying to find out who those people were that influenced him like Frank Davis, who was a communist, or Bill Ayers, who was a neo-communist [and] I think it’s the job of the press to get this information.”
The reports explain the background of the people that Obama knows and who may have influenced him in his life, especially when he was in college.
“The continuing influence of Davis over Barack Obama, could help explain why he went on to college by his own ambitions and thoughts. He had met selected Marxist professors among his friends in attending socialist conferences,” says Kincaid.
The report also reveals endorsements that Obama receives like the Democratic Socialists of America and Progressives for Obama.
The main point that America’s Survival is trying to say is that the media is not doing their job investigating and not providing enough background information on Barack Obama.
“We are here, not in behalf of any political candidate. I have no connections with any candidate. We are here to provide the information, this is informational, we are trying to put out information that the media seem reluctant to dig into,” says Kincaid.
