Yet Kurtz completely debunks Rogers’ contention that the New Party had no members with the group’s own documents. First, he reveals a memo written by Rogers on January 29, 1996 in his capacity as head of the New Party Interim Executive Council. In it Rogers addresses “standing concerns regarding existing chapter development and activity, the need for visibility as well as new members.”

Kurtz further notes that internal New Party documents reveal an organization “practically obsessed with signing up new members,” both nationally and in Chicago. Kurtz then writes about another New Party memo revealing an internal dispute between two factions in the Chicago branch “in which the leaders of one faction consider a scheme to disqualify potential voting members from a competing faction, on the grounds that those voters had not renewed their memberships.”

Thus, Kurtz concludes, “the memo clearly demonstrates that, contrary to Rogers’s explanation, membership in the New Party entailed the right to vote on matters of party governance. In fact, Obama’s own New Party endorsement, being controversial, was thrown open to a members’ vote on the day he joined the party.”

Kurtz then refutes the fallback assertion by Rogers that the New Party “was never about” socialism, a claim buttressed at the time by left-wing blogger Ann Althouse, who sarcastically contended that the organization “presented themselves not as socialists, but as left-leaning and progressive. I realize that for right wingers that counts as ‘socialist,’ but let’s not be inflammatory.”

Kurtz opts for accuracy:

“The documents reveal that the New Party’s central aim was to move the United States steadily closer to European social democracy, a goal that Mitt Romney has also attributed to Obama. New Party leaders disdained mainstream Democrats, considering them tools of business, and promised instead to create a partnership between elected officials and local community organizations, with the goal of socializing the American economy to an unprecedented degree.”

“The party’s official ‘statement of principles,’ which candidates seeking endorsement from the Chicago chapter were asked to support, called for a ‘peaceful revolution’ and included redistributive proposals substantially to the left of the Democratic party.”

At the end of his piece, Kurtz issues a challenge to the same “press that let candidate Obama off the hook in 2008,” wondering if it “will now refuse to report that President Obama once joined a leftist third party, and that he hid that truth from the American people in order to win the presidency.” Regardless, Kurtz promises further revelations of his own in the upcoming issue of National Review, further illuminating “the New Party’s ideology and program, Obama’s ties to the party, and the relevance of all this to the president’s campaign for reelection.”

It was apparently easy for a media still enchanted with hope and change to ignore Kurtz’s 2010 political biography of the president, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, a book exposing much of the president’s radical leftist past. Tellingly, it was released one month before the 2010 election, in which a large majority of Americans refuted much of Barack Obama’s hyper-partisan agenda. A mainstream media effort to ignore documented evidence–for the second time–may be impossible for one over-riding reason: Mitt Romney is not John McCain, and isn’t going to be cowed into “dignified” silence by leftist threats of racism aimed at anyone bringing up the president’s past associations.

Neither will Stanley Kurtz, who’s doing exactly what any investigative journalist ought to be doing. For that he is to be congratulated.

    I can't wait to see this all over the MSM. How will they try to spin this. I know…they'll have Axelrod come out and say that was wayyyyy back in 1996 and it would be inappropriate to even consider that stuff. (Remember, this was the guy who talked about Romney doing a high school prank nearly 50 years ago and called that relevant). He's sure to reiterate Obama's calling card now and tell us we have to look “forward.” On this same note, for 3.5 yrs. Obama has been pointing Back to Bush. Now he wants us to look forward and ignore the disastrous term he just served. As if Utopia is just over the horizon for us if we stick with him. LOL

      That's good progress, I can remember back when the left used to call the GOP racist and anti-Semitic. Now we're "The Jew party." I'm Baptist, but thanks, I'll go with it.

    WHO IS LEAKING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY SECRETS and what will happen to Obama when they find out it's him and his bedtime stories to Michelle?

    OBAMA WAS A SOVIET KGB DUPE IN THE 80'S! Google "Obama Sundial 1983" and carefully read this Soviet propaganda and disinformation article. The groups mentioned are known CPUSA fronts and since Obama admitted to seeking out Marxist professors, this article proves he sought out, and was sympathetic to the most radical of Marxist students so it is no wonder that he was a member of other groups like the New Party and the Democratic Socialists of America!

    • Asher

      Look for more to come because he has put this country in grave danger. Countries will not trust us anymore and it makes us more vulnerable…thats what Obama wants.

  • marios

    Only socialists (akin communists) party could push "empty suit' who never succeeded in anything: community organizer, lawyer of notorious extremely corrupted criminal "Acorn", visiting professor (not in staff even). He did not have even one publication on law issues. His promoters are socialists, communists, Muslims, Unions…
    His supporters unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayer, Nazis collaborator G. Soros, anti-American, anti-white, anti-Semite Rev. Wright,,, Gosh, I still cannot comprehend how such great country allowed him to become President, how it's happened that half of country turned to be gullible "useful idiots"? I/we can blame Republicans that they are up complacency allowed Leftists seize MSM and Educational Institution. MSM as 4th power concocted image of "MR nobody" as "Messiah". Hope country already woke up and WI's governor Walker is the first serious victory in the battle "we want country back".

    • Fred Dawes

      Yes we all know that, but who started the show up in 1920? and who is Soros? who was Ayer boss and who did he come from?

  • BLJ

    Obama is an enemy combatant of the USA.

    • Fred Dawes

      Yes and more Yes but what will we do? one word "Nothing". But if we had any Balls we would start to form units if you know what i mean? But sad to say most guys in the units would be FBI. SO JUST KEEP WATCHING THE FUN .

    The 75-member Congressional Progressive Caucus, co-chaired by Reps. Raul Grijalva and Keith Ellison, is closely allied with the Democratic Socialists of America. The Communist Party USA identifies the Progressive Caucus members as its allies in Congress. As of April 2011, CPC consisted of 74 members of the House of Representatives—all of them leftist Democrats—and one U.S. Senator (Bernie Sanders, an Independent who caucuses with the Democrats). For a comprehensive list of all 75 CPC members see: http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid….

    …………….and GOP is getting cuuuuuuuuuuuute with Holder and others….. WAKE UP, GOP!!!!

  • Asher

    Well now we know that he was more radical and to the left than the present Democrats, and had more associations with Acorn than he admitted, and he was able to soft soap the media because no one really knew much about the Senator who seemed to rise to the top fast!

  • Brujo Blanco

    Their is the old saying: If we do not acknowledge a problem then we do not have a problem. Obama needs to be identified as to who and what he is. He has gone too far in changing our country. Will start imprisoning his.enemies? He now has the power to do so.

    Like Bill Maher, Schlomotion was an arrogant, sarcastic pile of sh– back in high school…..and never got better…just worse. Why bother replying to this bottom feeding creep?

  • Anamah

    The man has been a fraud all the time. I believe he is a severe case of sociopathy, and I would ask their opinions to people specialized. One thing I know well I know when somebody is lying and this guy is an addicted liar. Worst than that he remind me very much Zelig, the transformer man of Woody Allen… I think he should be indicted of cheating his own words, American citizens, and the Constitution. An international shame history will tell more.

  • Tatersalad

    I'm betting that George Soros would be proud of this girl in the video!

    The President, Barack Obama would also be very proud of this girl who does the ultimate "Re-Distribution of the Wealth" (of others). The President is doing the exact same thing with taxpayers money in the likes of Solyndra, A123 Systems, MF Global, Fisker and many more……..all gone bankrupt. Liberals seem to like this method of taking money, they support the President and his agenda. Robbing Girl Scouts for money because??????????????????????

    During this year and the past years we have witnessed major persecution within the Maghreb which means the “North African countries”, such as Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and parts of Libya. What we have witnessed in the past was the killing of the young Tunisian man who was killed for his faith by Islamists who are part of the Salafists movement. Also another story of three Moroccans arrested for their faith in Morocco and many others that are also happening in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Mauritania and Algeria.

    written somewhere by "foxfan":

    people are losing their jobs. They are losing their savings. Jobs are fleeing overseas to escape confiscatory taxes and the business-killing regulations. Our homes are going underwater. The insane spending spree this person has embarked on in an attempt to turn this country into a socialist paradise is pushing the country ever nearer to total economic collapse. This parsing of the public into groups based on race, age, sex, sexual orientation, union membership and income levels and turning them against each other is tearing the country apart.
    Everybody sees it. Everybody knows it. There is no way to hide it."
    Let me add this:
    November landslide: 70/30 (without DemRats cheating)

    Known that for some time, in fact obama was and is part of the RED Move on us all. The sad part is most people don't care, The move on our freedoms our rights started not in the 1960s but in the 1920s look it up Kids its been here for 100 years. By the way the so called government understand what it takes to take us down and its doing it real well. In 65 years its killed 50 million whites and replaced us with 100 million non whites, what do you think is about to happen under the main monkey obama?

    All this and that may be, but Barry Python is much bigger now than he was when he transfixed and consumed Rabbit McCain with such ease in 2008. He'll have to unhinge and flex his snake's jaw a bit wider this time, but a plump, slick, Beaver Romney will go the same way. Unless you can find someone on your side who can make the moves that tip a latent problem into a full blown crisis, like Soros and his ilk did with American subprime in 2008. Trouble is, he is in Europe doing the opposite this time, singing sweet little Spanish lullabies! But just go and take a close look at Spain's housing market. It is Armageddon! And all financed by crony capitalism with stolen Euros. In the end, these half baked marxists and their mainstream media pals have each others backs, just as the rest of us have only columns and blogs and comments and each others throats. Time to go to full alert. Anyone got a plan? Sorry, but the Mitster seems like a nice guy with the right intentions who might even have won four years ago, but this is a serious job now. You need a tiger this time round, and a big one!

    osama obama, total evil!!!!

    Quick! Someone investigate Obama and his third party ties! Let's use taxpayer money to do it! It'll be just like Clinton: nothing actually substantial will be accomplished, but you just might get him on lying about a blowjob.

    Just as then, the country will be grateful for your tireless efforts. Thank God for priorities!
