Weatherman
domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is now confirming what the White House
has previously denied – that he held a fundraiser in his living room for
Barack Obama.

That 1995 meeting was said to have launched Obama’s political career.

In an October 2008 interview on MSNBC host Chris Matthews’ show,
Robert Gibbs, a spokesman for Obama’s presidential campaign,
categorically denied the fundraiser was ever held.

Matthews asked Gibbs: “Did [Ayers] have a fundraiser for [Obama], or not?”

Gibbs, who would become the White House spokesman, replied: “No, he
did not have a fundraiser for our candidate as he said ten seconds ago.”

However, in an interview last week with the Daily Beast, Ayers recalled that fundraiser.

Stated Ayers of his relationship with Obama: “We were friendly, that
was true; we served on a couple of boards together, that was true; he
held a fundraiser in our living room, that was true; Michelle [Obama]
and Bernardine were at the law firm together, that was true. Hyde Park
in Chicago is a tiny neighborhood, so when he said I was ‘a guy around
the neighborhood,’ that was true.”

Does this explain infamous Ayers living-room meeting?

Is the socialist-oriented New Party the missing link at the center of
that now infamous 1995 Obama fundraiser in Ayers living room in
Chicago?

It was at that meeting that New Party member Alice Palmer announced
she wanted Obama as her successor as state senator since she was
stepping down to run for Congress.

WND has found that in the July 1996 edition of the New Party’s
newsletter, the New Party news, the controversial party announced “the
Illinois New Party capped off a month-long house party drive in
Chicago.”

Further review of New Party literature from 1995 and 1996 finds that
so-called house parties were regularly utilized by the New Party to
introduce candidates to leading party activists as well as to raise
money and recruit new members.

It is known that single-payer activist Quentin Young, who advised
Obama on healthcare when the politician was a state senator, was present
at the parlor meeting at the Ayers’ residence.

WND reported that Young was listed by the New Party as an early party founder and builder.

“I can remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill
Ayers’ house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the
senate and running for Congress,” Young was quoted as saying. “[Palmer]
identified [Obama] as her successor.”

Chicago-based blogger Maria Warren was also present. She wrote that
she remembered watching Obama give a “standard, innocuous little talk”
in the Ayers’ home.

“They were launching him,” Warren wrote, “introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread.”

It would make sense that the New Party sponsored the get-together in Ayers’ living room for Palmer’s announcement.

Palmer was the New Party’s signed candidate for office. The New
Party, which had partnered closely with ACORN, was mobilizing support
for Palmer among its constituents and the larger Chicago progressive
community.

New Party founder and Marxist activist Carl Davidson recalled screening Palmer and signing her up to the party.

Wrote Davidson:

In the next two elections in the city … the New Party has taken a
slightly different approach. It organized a citywide candidates forum
and invited a number of progressive candidates. Of those responding, two
were of special interest, Alice Palmer and Willie Delgado … Both Palmer
and Delgado attended the [New Party] forum and were thoroughly
questioned by 70 or so New Party members. At the close, both publicly
signed a “contract” with the New Party … Two weeks later, the New Party
formally endorsed them and is now mobilizing support.

How was the New Party mobilizing the stated support for Palmer at the time, an effort that Palmer wanted transferred to Obama?

WND reported the New Party had such a close relationship with ACORN
that at one point the two shared an office address, fax lines and email
addresses.

ACORN led the New Party’s mobilization and voter drive efforts. In
progressive circles at the time, the New Party was considered the de
facto political wing of ACORN, a group with which Obama long maintained a
close relationship.

Ayers and Dohrn, meanwhile, traveled in the same political circles as
New Party leaders, making it even more likely the duo could have hosted
a New Party house meeting. The duo were key supporters of Palmer.

In 1994 Dohrn and Bill Ayers were listed on a “Membership,
Subscription and Mailing List” for the Chicago Committees of
Correspondence, which was co-chaired by New Party founder Davidson.

WND found that Chicago activists Joe Iosbaker and Stephanie Weiner were also listed as New Party leaders.

Iosbaker is a University of Illinois-Chicago office worker and a
union steward for his SEIU local. His home was raided by the FBI in
September 2010 reportedly as part of a terror probe investigating
material support for jihadist groups.

Together with other activists raided in the same probe, Iosbaker and
Weiner are founders of the so-called Committee to Stop FBI Repression,
which protested the FBI raids.

Another founder of the committee whose home was part of the same raid
is Hatem Abudayyeh, the executive director of the Arab American Action
Network, or AAAN.

WND was first to report that Obama, while serving as a paid director
of the far-left nonprofit Chicago Woods Fund, provided two grants to the
AAAN. Obama served at the Woods Fund alongside Ayers.

AAAN was founded by a longtime Obama associate, Columbia University
Professor Rashid Khalidi. Khalidi’s wife, Mona, is president of the Arab
American Action Network.

The New Party, meanwhile, is coming under increased scrutiny after
new information emerged further indicating Obama was a member of the
party in the 1990s.

The New Party was a 1990s party that sought to elect members to
public office with the aim of moving the Democratic Party far leftward
to ultimately form a new political party with a socialist agenda.

In 2008, Obama’s campaign denied the president was ever a member amid
reports, including from WND, citing the New Party’s own literature
listing Obama as a member.

Information uncovered in recent weeks, including Obama’s signed
contract with the New Party, further establishes the president’s
membership with the controversial organization.

Socialist goals

The New Party, established in 1992, took advantage of what was known
as electoral “fusion,” which enabled candidates to run on two tickets
simultaneously, attracting voters from both parties. But the New Party
disbanded in 1998, one year after fusion was halted by the Supreme
Court.

The socialist-oriented goals of the New Party were enumerated on its old website.

Among the New Party’s stated objectives were “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 New Party stated it also sought “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.”

Many of the New Party’s founding members were Democratic Socialists
of America leaders and members of Committees of Correspondence, a
breakaway of the Communist Party USA.

Last month, WND reported on a 1996 print advertisement in a local
Chicago newspaper that shows Obama was the speaker at an event sponsored
and presented by the Democratic Socialists of America, the DSA.

WND first reported on the event in 2010.

Obama listed as New Party member

In 2009, WND reported on newspaper evidence from the New Party’s own
literature listing several new members of the New Party, including
Obama.

Earlier this month, Kurtz, writing at National Review Online,
reported Obama signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and
associate himself with the New Party while in office.

In 2008, Obama’s Fight the Smears campaign website quoted Carol
Harwell, who managed Obama’s 1996 campaign for the Illinois Senate, as
stating: “Barack did not solicit or seek the New Party endorsement for
state senator in 1995.”

Fight the Smears conceded the New Party did support Obama in 1996 but denied that Obama had ever joined.
