Quick Primer on tonight’s #SOTU: Abuse of Power

When (if) you’re watching the State of the Union tonight, here is something to watch for: He’s going to take action without Congressional approval again and again, because “He can’t wait“.

Our pal Ben Howe put a video together for Ted Cruz, who is one of the few in Congress trying to push back:

Wonder how we got to this point? America was tricked into voting for a radical leftist who, among others, had this man for a mentor: Frank Marshall Davis –

Frank Marshall Davis was a literal, card-carrying member of Communist Party USA (CPUSA). His card number was 47544. He was pro-Soviet, pro–Red China. He edited and wrote for Party-line publications such as the Chicago Star and the Honolulu Record; contributors to the former actually served as secret agents to Stalin’s Soviet Union. Davis did outrageous Soviet propaganda work in his columns, at every juncture agitating and opposing U.S. attempts to slow Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung. He favored Yalta and Red Army takeovers of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Central and Eastern Europe. He urged America to dump the “fascist” Chiang Kaishek in support of Mao’s Red forces. He wanted Communist takeovers in Korea and Vietnam. He was adamantly, angrily anti-NATO, anti–Marshall Plan, anti–Truman Doctrine. He argued that the U.S. under President Harry Truman—whom he portrayed as a fascist, racist, and imperialist—and under secretaries of state George Marshall and Dean Acheson, was handing West Germany back to the Nazis, while Stalin was pursuing “democracy” in East Germany and throughout the Communist Bloc. He portrayed America’s leaders as “aching for an excuse to launch a nuclear nightmare of mass murder and extermination” against the Soviets and the Chinese— as eager to end all civilization.

In short, Frank Marshall Davis’ writings were outrageous. A Jeremiah Wright sermon or Bill Ayers lecture is tame by comparison.

Read it all if you get the time, Davis is woven into the web of the Chicago political machine, and connects to Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, and others that Obama surrounds himself with daily. It reads like a spy novel, except it’s all true.
