For those that may not know WHO Congressman Danny K. Davis is:

From Keywiki.org:

Danny K. Davis is an openly socialist Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, representing the 7th district of Illinois.

Supporting Timuel Black

In the late 1970s Communist Party USA member Harold Rogers served on a “Citizen’s Committee” supporting Timuel Blacks unsuccessful campaign for State Representative in the 22nd District.

The “Citizen’s Committee” included “former” communist Charles Hayes, radical journalist Don Rose, socialist Chicago Alderman Leon Despres, future Democratic Socialists of America members Saul Mendelson (a former Trotskyite), Danny Davis and Milt Cohen (another former communist).

Communist Party connections

Danny Davis was also on good terms with the Communist Party USA. In Chicago, the Communist Party has for many years held an annual a fund raising banquet for its paper, the Peoples Weekly World (formerly the Peoples Daily World).

1990 Chicago PWW banquet

According to the Peoples Daily World of July 28 1990, Chicago alderman Danny K Davis attended the 1990 banquet on July 15th.

Davis applauded those at the banquet, who, he said, are always in the midst of struggle. PDW readers, he said, are “steadfast in the fight for justice”.

The affair netted $2,500 for the PDW fund.

1998 Chicago PWW banquet

According to the Peoples Weekly World October 3 1998, Congressman Danny K. Davis interrupted his campaign work for United States Senate candidate Carol Moseley Braun to present an award at the 1998 Chicago Peoples Weekly World banquet. Davis praised the work of Communist Party USA member Harry Gaynors “active role in tearing city’s segregated walls and working for peace”. [8].

This event raised $10,000 towards keeping the Communist Party paper afloat.

2000 Chicago PWW banquet

The 2000 banquet, held October 28 at the House of Fortune restaurant featured Congressman Danny Davis as guest speaker.

Local honorees were;

A special award went to Evelina Alarcon, co-ordinator to the Cesar E. Chavez Holiday Campaign.

Lance Cohn was a banquet organizer.[9]

Labor and community activists, elected officials, readers and supporters of the PeoplesWorld.org and MundoPopular.org gathered in Chicago Nov. 20th, 2011, for the annual banquet bash at the Parthenon Restaurant. They feasted on sumptuous Greek food and honored heroes of the growing labor and people’s movement.

“Something’s terribly wrong when 1% of the population controls 40% of the nation’s wealth,” said Congressman Danny Davis, D-Ill., who appeared on behalf of his longtime friend Brenetta Howell Barrett.

Barrett was one of those receiving the Rudy Lozano-Chris Hani Social Justice award.

Davis said it was the steadfastness of fighters like Barrett, who had been in every fight he could recount, that the movement for justice and equality would be successful.

Barrett, who among other things is a leader of Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights, a former commissioner in Mayor Harold Washingtons administration and trailblazing fighter for political independence, said it was critical to reelect Pres. Barack Obama in 2012 and blasted the racist attacks on him.

“Everyone needs to be involved in that fight if we are to have any meaningful change,” said Barrett, who it was noted was a master of combining street heat with political and electoral action.

Progressive Chicago

In late 1993 Progressive Chicago letters were always signed by 17 people;[18]

Congressional Progressive Caucus

In 1998 Danny Davis Democrat was listed as a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus[20].

As of February 20 2009 Danny Davis was listed as a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus[21].

Support for Alice Palmer

Davis was an early supporter of Alice Palmer in her bid for U.S. Congress.

In the mid 1990s Danny Davis was listed[22]as a member of Friends of Alice Palmer (in formation), alongside Timuel BlackTony Rezko and Barack Obama.

The New Party

Danny K. Davis joined the Chicago New Party (along with Barack Obama) during his successful Congressional 1996 campaign on the Democratic Party ticket.

New Party News Spring 1996 page 1, celebrated the Davis’ Congressional victory and went on to say;

“New Party members won three other primaries this Spring in Chicago: Barack Obama (State Senate), Michael Chandler (Democratic Party Committee) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary)…”these victories prove that small ‘d’ democracy can work’ said Obama”.

**A Special Thank You to Trevor Loudon, a Kiwi from New Zealand that has done EXTENSIVE research into connections and backgrounds of those trying to destroy America from within***

His latest book, “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within” is WELL worth the read (includes footnotes and documents).
