Congressman Danny Davis Receives Communist Party Lifetime Award

Obama Ally Rep. Danny Davis Receives Award at Communist Party HQ

March 12, 2012

By

“He is one on the greatest congressmen in the country,” said President Obama. The reason, Obama told a Teamsters union rally in 2004, “is because he shares our values.”

At that time—just eight years ago—Congressman Danny Davis was continuing his efforts to help move then-State Senator Obama up the Chicago political food chain. It was also not that long ago—in fact just two weeks—that Congressman Davis was honored by People’s World, a news website, at the Communist Party U.S.A.’s headquarters in Chicago for a lifetime of “inspiring leadership.”

Upon receiving the People’s World “Chris Hani & Rudy Lozano Social Justice Award,” Davis reflected, “Rudy Lozano and I worked closely together to try and build and a relationship between Latino and African-American activists and union types…we called ourselves ‘Progressives.’”

Congressman Davis, a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, was filmed receiving his award and exiting the Communist Party U.S.A. headquarters in Chicago on March 4, 2012. When questioned about his relationship with the Communist Party, Davis abruptly fled the scene, refusing to answer any further questions apart from the following exchange:

Cong. Davis: “I thought you’re just a citizen? Why are you worried about the Communist Party?”

Citizen Journalist: “I shouldn’t be worried about the Communist Party?”

Cong. Davis: “No.”

So is Davis’s lifetime achievement award, and subsequent speech at the Communist Party U.S.A. headquarters, something “just a citizen” should be concerned about? Is there no significance, as Davis suggests, in a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security’s gracious acceptance of this award? Further, why did President Obama suggest that Davis not only “was one of the greatest congressmen,” but also that he shares “our values?”

Further investigation into the nature of the award reveals that Chris Hani, one of the figures for whom Congressman Davis’s award was named, was an anti-apartheid activist and chief-of-staff in the armed branch of the African National Congress. Hani spent much of his life in exile from South Africa and received military training in the Soviet Union, returning to South Africa in 1990. In 1991, he took over the South African Communist Party, and in 1993 he was assassinated.

Like President Obama, Rudy Lozano, the other namesake of the award, was also a community organizer in Chicago. He was credited with bringing Latino voters to support the former mayor of Chicago, Harold Washington. Lozano was later shot to death in his home by Gregory Escobar for allegedly failing to pay off a $7,000 drug debt.

According to the Chicago Tribune, at a tribute event held at the University of Chicago for Lozano, “Richard Barnett, an aide on Washington’s mayoral campaign, said it was people like Lozano who built the foundation for Barack Obama’s historic run for the presidency.

“You have to have the grass-roots grunt work done, then you can have Barack Obama,” Barnett said. “That grunt work was done by Rudy and other folks of that era. If you want something, you have to fight for it, and that was Rudy.”

It seems the groundwork of Lozano and Davis that Barnett spoke of did indeed play a role in advancing Barack Obama’s political career. And in 1996, New Party News lists both Obama and Davis as members of the far left-wing branch of the Democrat Party, the “New Party.” After working within the New Party, Davis had won his Democratic primary for U.S. Congress in the Illinois 7th District and Barack Obama had won his primary for Illinois State Senate.

Davis and Obama seem also to have maintained a close friendship following their earlier years in higher offices, as is evidenced in a 2004 video of Danny Davis speaking to the Teamsters union.

Davis tells the audience that then-State Senator Barack Obama is someone they “oughta get to know,” and proceeded to call Obama out on stage to address the crowd. Obama returned the favor, praising Davis as “one of the best congressmen in the whole country….because he shares our values.” Obama goes on to name several values now recognized synonymously with “social-justice.”

Given Obama’s effusive praise of Congressman Davis—and Davis’s connection with the Communist Party of Chicago—it seems we “oughta” take Davis’s advice and get to know more about both of these Chicago “New Party” radicals.

545 vs. 300,000,000 People  
        -By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.  

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall.  No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating  deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want.  If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal  government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they  alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…

We should vote all of  them out of office and clean up their mess!

A quick look at how large numbers of people who occupy space in our Congress are working hard to destroy America as we know it. Extensive review of voting records, memberships, ethical problems, connection with anti American organizations such as La Raza, Hamas, CAIR, Communist Party USA, Democratic Socialist Party.. and much more. These are facts, relationships, and efforts that remain hidden from “normal America” compliments of our pro “Big Government” elitist “MainStream Media”.
