In the '90's, there was a socialist/communist party in Chicago. Much of their mission statement was copied almost word for word from the Constitution - not ours, but the Constitution of the U.S.S.R. (communist Russia). The name of the party was the NEW PARTY.
In 2008 a story surfaced that Barack Obama was a member of the NEW Party. He vehemently denied it and villified anyone who brought up the story. And the mainstream media never even questioned it - because they did not want to know.
Over the last 4 years, the president's own "stop the smears" website continued to deny the story.
But now a diligent journalist has dug up records from ACORN and the Minutes of the Meeting of the NEW Party for January 11, 1996. Barack Obama was at that meeting, and photos were taken. At that meeting the minutes state he asked the NEW Party for their support, he signed a pledge to push their agenda and signed up to be a member.
Two things: it appears Barack Obama was, indeed a member of a socialist party, and that he and his team have been lying about it ever since.
But the more important thing - people like that get away with it because the lamestream media will not do their job. They adamantly refuse to investigate "their" liberal politicians. The fail to vet them because they don't want to know, and really don't care about skeletons in liberal closets. And because of that, America is failing. The mainstream news outlets and magazines are lying through their teeth to convince the public that liberals are the hope for the future. And that is not even close to the truth.
