Barack Obama & Science Czar John Holdren’s Communist Party Connections

Was Science Czar John Holdren given a proper security vetting, or did he “slip through the cracks” like communist “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones?

Trevor Loudon at New Zeal has compiled a massive archive on Barack Obama called the Obama File. Last week he tackled Science Czar John Holdren’s associations with the Bulletin of Nuclear Sciences, a publication that included two accused Soviet informants among its founding sponsors and employed several other socialist and communist sympathizers. Detailing the milieau that Holdren worked within during the 1980’s Loudon notes,

Holdren’s brief encompasses global environmental change, fusion science and technology, comparative analysis of energy options, ways to reduce the dangers from nuclear weapons and materials, population control and the interaction of content and process in science and technology policy.

All these areas have huge implications for America’s national security, prosperity and future liberty. Should a man with John Holdren’s past associations be entrusted with such a position?

But deep within Loudon’s impressive research on Holdren in Obama File #98 comes a very interesting bit of information. As Loudon traces the communist associations all the way to Chicago he finds direct ties to Barack Obama.

In the early 1960s [Ruth] Adams served on the Advisory Committee of the Hyde Park Community Peace Center. Other Council members included life long communist front activist Robert Havighurst – a founder of the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights , Sydney Lens (aka Okun), a radical Trotskyist, later active in the Communist Party controlled Chicago Peace Council, Timuel Black and Quentin Young.

Black and Young had both been accused of Communist Party membership by government investigative authorities. Timuel Black later joined the Communist Party offshoot, Committees of Correspondence. Both became officials of the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights and the Democratic Socialists of America.

More importantly, both became personal friends, mentors and advisers to Barack Obama.

Our current President of the United States has very sordid and radical background, one the mainstream media has proactively avoided reporting. One has to wonder just how radical Barack Obama really is.
