Paul Kengore, Ph.D. has written and just published (July 17, 2012), “The Communist” – Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor.
This history of Obama’s mentors background and associations is important to understand, because it shows how ideas, policies, and rhetoric origination in Marxist – Leninist doctrine and anti-American propaganda have been “mainstreamed” into the current Democratic Party politics.
Obama’s mentors and a handful of close confidants in his White House circle include:
Frank Marshall Davis – Obama’s Mentor and role model
- Originally a Republican, he became a Devout “card-carrying” member of the communist party, Number 47544, and on FBI security index
- Edited and wrote for the communist newspapers (where Soviet agents were contributors) in Chicago and Honolulu
- In 1948 Davis moved to Honolulu and worked for the Honolulu Record, then edited and run by communist party member, Koji Ariyoshi.
- even in the 40’s and 50’s Davis was using Obama quotes of today: “hope and change”, “forward”, “redistribution of the wealth”, “excess profits”, “tax cuts that spare the rich”, “universal health care”, “take over of General Motors and oil companies”, etc.
- Frank Marshall Davis was an active member of the communist party in Hawaii, even when it went underground in 1950 and was Chairman of the cell: Group # 10.
- in the 70’s, Davis met and began mentoring Obama and was a close friend of Obama’s mother, and her father, also avowed communists.
- The Hawaii communist party slowly faded into the Democratic Party and the International Longshore Workers Union
- Davis was a source of inspiration to a young, fatherless, impressionable, Obama

David Axelrod – Senior Obama Advisor
- Mother, Myril Bennett Axelrod, worked for PM, a leftist New York newspaper from 1940-48, whose ranks were penetrated by communists seeking to advance Marxist Stalinist philosophy.
- Famous PM Washington correspondent, I. F. Stone was subsequently identified as a Soviet agent by “the Verona” documents and a former KGB official, Oleg Kalugin.

- After Obama’s election victory in November 2008, he sold his interest in his political consulting company and became a senior advisor to Obama.
Besides the above Communist Party Members and sympathizers who are or were mentors of Obama, Obama or Valerie Jarrett have appointed dozens of other self pro-claimed communist or far left progressive thinking (unelected and unaccountable ) czars including:
- Van Jones – Green Czar -Self proclaimed Communist ane weather underground terrorist
- Carol Ruth Browner – Environmental – Energy Czar -
- Ann Dunn – Communications Czar - (her favorite are Mother Teresa, a Saint and Mao-Tse Tung, greatest mass murderer of the 20th century)
- Mark Lloyd – Diversity Czar - Praises Communist, Hugo Chavez, Venezuela President
- Ezekiel Emanuel – Health Care Czar – very scary beliefs -
- John Holdren – Science Czar -
- Cathy Zoi – Weatherization Czar -
- Kevin Jennings – Safe School Czar -
- Cass Sunstein – Regulatory Czar -
- Samantha Power, Cass’s wife, – Foreign policy Czar – advocates Muslim invasion of Israel

In summary, so-called journalists, biographers, and the media in general are guilty of “scandalous neglect” in vetting Barack Obama, before his election to the Senate, President or today.
