During Obama’s campaign, he asserted that he wanted to be judged by ‘the company he keeps’.
One look at the ‘company’ tells you all you need to know.
The Marxist from Chicago now occupies the White House. He appoints communist/socialist agitators to positions of importance and influence within our government, with the support of a contingent of far-left Democrats.
Some of his ‘company’:
Jeremiah Wright: Reverend at the Trinity United Church of Christ, which Obama attended for over 20 years. Preached violent rhetoric against “whitey” and Jews from his pulpit, as part of his “Black Liberation Theology”.
Van Jones: Former “Green Jobs” adviser. Avowed communist radical. Accused “white business people” of “poisoning black communities”.
Cass Sunstein: Regulatory “czar”. Advocates limiting free speech, forced organ donations, a ban on hunting, and a ban on the right to bear arms. He also frowns on individual liberty and thinks the government should have more control over your life.
Sonia Sotomayor: Recent Supreme Court appointee. Friend to radical racist group La Raza. Thinks a “wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male”. Thinks the court of appeals—not the legislature— is “where policy is made”.
ACORN: Corrupt taxpayer-funded “community organizing” group that has committed massive voter fraud, and hired felons to carry out the registrations. Founded by Wade Rathke and his brother, Dale. Dale “allegedly” embezzled $1 million from the organization. Wade Rathke is also the founder and chief organizer of the thugs at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) . SEIU, by the way, donated $33 million to Obama’s campaign in 2008. Both of them are listed as partners in numerous companies in the ACORN HQ in New Orleans. Millions of dollars flow into ACORN every year, with no accountability.
William Ayers: Unrepentant bomb-throwing terrorist and co-founder of the 60’s domestic terrorist group Student for a Democratic Society and member of the Weather Underground. Both groups were responsible for bombings of government buildings, slaying police officers, and the attempted assassination of a New York State Supreme Court justice. ”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough.” Obama launched his career from Ayers’ home in Chicago. He and Obama were collaborators on the Annenberg Challenge and the Woods Fund, two radical leftwing organizations who funneled money to Tony Rezko, the Arab American Action network, a pro-Palestinian group, and ACORN.
Bernadine Dohrn: Comrade and wife of William Ayers.
Frank Marshall Davis: Member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and Obama’s childhood mentor.
John Holdren: Science “czar”. Proposed “compulsory sterilization” and forced abortions to control population.
Carol Browner: Global warming “czar”. Was part of Socialist International, a group for “global governance”.
Robert McChesney: Currently meeting with the FCC. Friend of Van Jones and Mark Lloyd. Former editor of The Monthly Review, a communist publication. Founder of the radical group Free Press, which isn’t exactly supportive of the First Amendment. Backs Hugo Chavez. Wants to crack down on any dissent which runs contrary to his socialist world view:
Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to necessarily be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist system itself.
There is no real answer but to remove, brick by brick, the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.
Mark Lloyd: Communications Diversity “czar” in the FCC. Also backs Hugo Chavez. Wants government control of media and oversight of media content. Also happens to think freedom of speech is overrated:
“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press,” he said. “This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.”
Kevin Jennings: Safe School czar. Praised Harry Hay, an outspoken supporter of the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Once advised a 15-year-old who told him he was having sex with an adult male: “I hope you knew to use a condom.” Wrote the forward in the book: Queering Elementary Education, declaring that “queerly raised’ children are agents” using “strategies of adaptation, negotiation, resistance, and subversion.”
Wants to force a “diversity policy that mandates including LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender]” into the curriculums of schools, without debating the issue. Says Jennings:
“Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation’s public schools. A line has been drawn. There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students.”
This assclown is clearly a pedophile who does not delineate between consensual adult sex and the exposure of children to explicit sexual acts and preferences.
Senate Democrats successfully killed legislation that would have reigned in the dozens of unconfirmed “czars” in the Obama administration.
He has a total of 32 czars (so far), many of whom are socialist/leftist leaning. They all have unfettered power.
Ezekiel Emmanuel: Health care adviser. Proponent of the Complete Lives System, which puts values on lives based mostly by age.
The Apollo Alliance: A powerful coalition of radical leftwing unions that believe America is guilty of worldwide “environmental disruption, rising social inequity, and fundamentalist anger.” Their endorsing organizations and partners include Greenpeace, the Rainforest Action Network, the Sierra Club, the Union of Concerned Scientists, and, of course, ACORN. I’m sure the moonbats at the Earth Liberation Front are somewhere on the list.
Jeff Jones: One of the leaders of the Apollo Alliance. Had a lot to do with the stimulus bill.
Antoin “Tony” Rezko: A former business partner of Obama’s. A corrupt real estate businessman who was convicted of influence-peddling in Chicago
The Arab-American Action Network: Founded by Rashid Khalidi, a PLO operative who attended the University of Chicago and ran in the same circles as Associate Dean Michelle Obama, Law Professor Barack Obama, University of Illinois-Chicago Education Professor Bill Ayers, and Northwestern Law Professor Bernadine Dohrn. The Woods Fund donated $75,000 to the AAAN.
Valerie Jarrett: Senior presidential adviser. Part of Mayor Daley’s corrupt Chicago political machine. Responsible for bringing self-described Communist Van Jones into the White House as President Obama’s environmental “Green Czar”.
Anita Dunn: Former White House Communications Director, and current “consultant”:
From a 5 June 2009 speech Dunn gave to High School students:
“….The third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Tse Tung and Mother Theresa. Not often coupled with each other, but the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is you’re going to make choices, you’re going to challenge, you’re going to say why not. You’re going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before…..In 1947 when Mao Tse Tung was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, Chiang Kai-Shek and the nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side. And people said, how can you win? How can you do this against all of the odds against you? And Mao Tse Tung said, “You fight your war and I’ll fight mine….”
Then she goes on to explain how Barack and Michelle Obama came out of backgrounds as “community organizers”, a phrase synonymous with socialist/communist activism.
She gets her inspiration from the wonderful Mao Tse Tung. The ChiCom dictator responsible for the deaths of at least 70 million Chinese during his “Great Leap Forward”, purges, and labor camps. He continued to kill and ruin millions of lives during his “Cultural Revolution”.
……Many of the victims took their own lives. They included many of China’s intellectuals who had helped bring Mao to power. In 1957, when Mao briefly encouraged public criticism of his regime, Professor Yang Shihchan sent Mao a 10,000-word letter, which was published in the Yangtze Daily. The professor said, “During the social reform campaigns, unable to endure the spiritual torture and humiliation imposed by the struggle… the intellectuals who chose to die by jumping from tall buildings, drowning in rivers, swallowing poison, cutting their throats or by other methods, were innumerable. The aged had no escape and pregnant women were given no pardon…
A couple of quotes from the great philosopher, Mao: “Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy”. “A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery”.
For a good look at what Communism wrought, read The Black Book of Communism. It was a compiled history written by Stéphane Courtois in 1997.
That she mentioned Mao Tse Tung in the same breath as Mother Theresa should get her mouth washed out with industrial-strength soap.
Dunn is married to Robert Bauer, a Washington, D.C. corporate lawyer who served as general counsel for Obama for America. It was Bauer who lobbied the Justice Department unsuccessfully last fall to pursue a criminal probe of American Issues Project (AIP), an independent group that sought to run an ad spotlighting Obama’s ties to Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.
It was Bauer who attempted to sic the DOJ on GOP donor Harold Simmons and sought his prosecution for funding the ad. It was Bauer who tried to bully television stations across the country to compel them to pull the spot. All on Barack Obama’s behalf.

During the campaign, some of his political activists prominently displayed pictures of Che Guevara.
Some background on the Cuban revolutionary they admire so much:
Che wanted to destroy New York City with nuclear missiles. He promoted book burning and signed death warrants for authors who disagreed with him. He made racist statements about blacks. He persecuted gays, long-haired rock and roll fans, and religious people. Che, the devoted Communist, loved material wealth and private luxuries.
Yet leftwing politicos and Hollywood entertainers revere him as if he were a heroic saint.
Ron Bloom: Obama’s “Manufacturing Czar”, speaking at an Investing Forum in February 2008 about the union’s role in bankruptcy and restructuring:
“Generally speaking we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense, we know that the whole point is to game the system…we know this is largely about power; that it’s an adults only no-limit game. We kinda agree with Mao, that power comes largely from the barrel of a gun, and we get it, that if you want a friend, you should get a dog.”
Arif Alikhan: Assistant secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security.
At a banquet/fundraiser for the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California,…the first speaker was Arif Alikhan (former) Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles – in charge of public safety for the city.
……Professor Agha Saeed of the American Muslim Task Force (AMT) spoke of the aftermath of 9/11 and the struggle of the Muslim Community against the pervasive atmosphere of Islamophobia and hatred. It was a struggle against the tide – a very strong tide – to prevent Muslims in America from being marginalized and silenced.
Professor Saeed ….issued five demands from Muslims to the Department of Justice. These demands included a cessation to the infiltration by spies of mosques and an end to the introduction of agents provocateur. In addition there was to be a cessation of attempts to undermine Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
……Back in 2007, Alikhan was instrumental in removing the Muslim terror tracking plan in LA.
The controversial Muslim ‘Mapping’ Plan of the Los Angeles Police Department is now “dead on arrival” according to Chief William Bratton.
“It is over and not just put on the side,” said Chief Bratton in a meeting with the Muslim leadership of Southern California on Thursday, November 15th. The meeting was moderated by Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles, Arif Alikhan and attended by Deputy Chief Mike Downing.
Chief Bratton acknowledged the hurt and offense caused to Muslims and agreed to send a letter to the Muslim community announcing the official termination of the ‘mapping’ plan.
A major reason for the termination of the ‘mapping’ plan was the Muslim community’s vociferous opposition and active civic engagement in making themselves heard beyond Los Angeles. Muslim organizations demonstrated a strong unity of purpose and message on the issue of ‘mapping’ that led to a position of strength for Muslims in the meeting. Those involved in the initial phases of this controversy were the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and Muslim Advocates.
Kareem Shora: Member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council.
Head of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, (ADC). Calls Islamic jihadists “heroes” and opposed referring to Hamas as a terrorist organization. Also opposes domestic anti-terrorism measures taken after the 9-11 attacks, such as watch lists, background check delays for visas and an initiative meant to more comprehensively screen visitors from select Mideast countries or specific individuals labeled as possible national security threats.
So, now we also have a muslim terrorist sympathizers appointed to our own Homeland Security Department.
Heather Higginbottom: Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget
She is linked to the Democratic Socialists of America.
Since entering office Obama has appointed several D.S.A. connected individuals to influential positions in his administration, including ;
- Ron Bloom , former Manufacturing Czar.
- David Bonior, member of the Obama Economic Transition Team
- Rosa Brooks, senior advisor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Michele Flournoy.
- Carol Browner, former Energy Czar/Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy
- Eliseo Medina, served on Obama’s Latino Advisory Council
- Hilda Solis, Secretary of Labor.
- Cornel West, served on Obama’s National Black Advisory Council.
Obama’s Politburo is rife with a veritable conglomeration of radicals, communists, socialists, and muslim extremists.

Remember, these hacks make policies that affect the national security of the United States.
They just keep crawling out of the woodwork.
