President Barack Obama has been challenged before about his alleged ties to the “New Party,” a far-left political group that once served as a third party option in the American political schema. Last month, The Blaze highlighted some images that seemed to corroborate the president’s alleged past ties to groups like the Democratic Socialists of America and, alas, the New Party, despite his campaign’s 2008 denial that he was a member of the movement.

As noted, a picture of Obama was published on the cover of the New Party News pamphlet back in 1996, serving as a small sliver of evidence that he had potential ties with the political party. Now, in a new piece for National Review, Stanley Kurtz is claiming that Obama’s ties to the controversial group were extensive — and corroborated — by recently uncovered documents.

It was also in 1996 that Kurtz says Obama formally joined the New Party. Interestingly, this is the same year that he appeared on the cover of the group’s pamphlet.

Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.

Minutes from a January 11, 1996 meeting, Kurtz claims, prove Obama’s affiliation with the group. The New Party‘s Chicago Chapter had apparently recorded the president’s extensive involvement, including a purported request that he be endorsed by the movement.

“Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions,” the minutes read.“He signed the New Party ‘Candidate Contract’ and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.”

Carol Harwell, who managed Obama’s 1996 campaign for the Illinois senate, said:“Barack did not solicit or seek the New Party endorsement for state senator in 1995.” Drawing on her testimony, Fight the Smears conceded that the New Party did support Obama in 1996 but denied that Obama had ever joined, adding that “he was the only candidate on the ballot in his race and never solicited the endorsement.”

We’ve seen that this is false. Obama formally requested New Party endorsement, signed the candidate contract, and joined the party. Is it conceivable that Obama’s own campaign manager could have been unaware of this? The notion is implausible. And the documents make Harwell’s assertion more remarkable still.

The New Party had a front group called Progressive Chicago, whose job was to identify candidates that the New Party and its sympathizers might support. Nearly four years before Obama was endorsed by the New Party, both he and Harwell joined Progressive Chicago and began signing public letters that regularly reported on the group’s meetings. By prominently taking part in Progressive Chicago activities, Obama was effectively soliciting New Party support for his future political career (as was Harwell, on Obama’s behalf). So Harwell’s testimony is doubly false.

No one is surprised that Obama is a card carrying socialist. The problem is CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN all covered for this socialist mistake and did not report his bad stuff. Well we know it now and Obama is history tghis November election.

Yes this will be fun to see Obama finally called out on all his past radical associations. I predict Romney will win in a landslide and because of Obama liberalism will be dead in the water for 20 years to come.

How can you blame him for doing what he does best?. Someday he will be considered a bigger Soviet hero than Comrade Stalin. Big Brother we love you!, please save us from ourselves and the evils of independant thought. We NEED you Big Brother Barry to control all aspects of our lives from cradle to grave. All fall down and grovel at the feet of the black omnipotent Obama. Anyone who dares to criticize the Socialist messiah should be sent to the gulag.

<quoted text>He is MUCH worse than that, America is like a deer caught in the headlights. He really needs to be impeached instead of just kicking him out in November. THANK GOD the White voting public now recognizes him for the opportunistic liar that he is. They also need to recognize his not so secret agenda.
Does it give you a sense of power to spread lies or are you just s imple fool troll, a 12 year old delinquent child or maybe just a stupid troll trying to get a rise out of idiots like me? LOL

Liars like you are so unconscious you don;t even know you're lying. Truth is, maybe you're not. It's possible your just a tiny little sheeple following the dictates of some lower being. What ever the case may be YOU LIE LIKE A LEICESTER CARPET.
