Tell me if this sounds similar to what Barack Obama has been trying to do since moving into the White House:
“Full employment, a shorter work week and a guaranteed minimum income for all adults; a universal ‘social wage’ to include such basic benefits as health care, child care, vacation time and lifelong access to education and training; a systematic phase-in of comparable worth; and like programs to ensure gender equity.”
“The democratization of our banking and financial system – including popular election of those charged with public stewardship of our banking system, worker-owner control over their pension assets [and] community-controlled alternative financial institutions.”
If your answer is yes, and it should be, would you be surprised to find out that these are the policies or objectives that were listed on the New Party’s website? Who or what is the New Party?
The New Party was started in 1992 as a third party alternative to the two major political parties. Founded by Joel Rogers, a law professor and Daniel Cantor who worked on Jesse Jackson’s 1998 campaign for president, New Party is best described as a social democratic and progressive party. Many of their objectives are what most people would call socialistic in nature.
In the Chicago area, the New Party chapter became heavily involved with ACORN and a young Chicagoan by the name of Barack Obama. During the 2008 campaign, Obama continually denied having any involvement with New Party or ever being a member of the organization, however that may be one of many lies Obama has told in the past four years.
According to a report from WND, a 1996 New Party spring newspaper listed three members that won primaries. The three New Party victors were Patricia Martin who ran for Cook County Judiciary; Michael Chandler who ran for Democratic Party Committee; and Barack Obama who ran for state senate.
Further evidence of Obama’s membership in New Party appeared in a 1996 newsletter that listed him as an attendee at a membership meeting. At the meeting, Obama thanked other members for their support in his efforts to get more people registered to vote.
To become a member of New Party, people had to first be approved and then they had to sign a contract that required them to be active and visibly a part of the party. This means that if in fact Obama was a member as their own literature indicates, that he not only had to be publically associated with New Party, but that he has been lying about his involvement with them for the past four years.
To be honest, it reminds me of the controversy surrounding his birth and birth certificate. Obama keeps denying what others are finding to be documented. In reality, Obama has all of the classic earmarks of a pathological liar – someone who believes their own lies to be the truth regardless of the evidence. Kind of a scary thought for leading the most powerful nation in the world, isn’t it?
