President Barack Obama has appointed a far left labor unionist to a security sensitive U.S. trade post.
As U.S. trade positions and data are always key targets of foreign intelligence services, one would think that appointments to such a body would be subject to thorough scrutiny.
Either this was not done in King’s case, or affiliation with far left organizations, is no longer considered any sort of danger to national security in today’s Washington.
As a long time leader of the U.A.W. King would have to be closely linked to America’s largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America. Many of U.A.W. leading officials in recent years have been D.S.A. members or sympathisers, including King’s long time fellow union Vice Presidents Elizabeth Bunn and Richard Shoemaker.
U.A.W. leaders have, over several years, placed (presumably paid) advertisements in D.S.A.’s Democratic Left magazine, praising the publication as a “strong voice for social and economic justice.”
Bob King, Elizabeth Bunn, Richard Shoemaker and many othe U.A.W. leaders have signed these ads.

It is worth remembering that former D.S.A. National Political Committee member Kurt Stand is currently serving 17 years imprisonment for spying for East Germany and the former Soviet Union. Many D.S.A. members have ties to Cuba and the organization also works closely with the Communist Party USA and other foreign affiliated radical groups.
Of even more concern is King’s affiliation with the Detroit based Maurice & Jane Sugar Law Center.
Named after the famed communist U.A.W. lawyer Maurice Sugar, the Center is openly affiliated to the communist founded National Lawyers Guild and to the International Association of Democratic Lawyers. Once a well documented Soviet front, the I.A.D.L. is still run by communists, mainly from Cuba, India, Palestine, Vietnam and former East Bloc nations.
Evenson, Hurwitz and Cohn, all signed an October 2008 statement in support of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers – then under attack his close associations with Barack Obama.
In November 2010, Bob King welcomed to Detroit, another well known Obama associate – “former” communist and ex “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones.
The Sugar Law Center presented Jones with its annual “Maurice Sugar Voice for Justice Award.”

Bob King served on the Sugar Center’s honorary host committee, alongside D.S.A. member David Elsila, ultra radical Detroit City Council member JoAnn Watson, Communist Party affiliate and pro Palestine activist Hasan Newash and retired Detroit judge and life long communist “sympathizer” Claudia Morcom.
In his new position, Bob King may well be privy to some very sensitive U.S. trade data – which if it got into the wrong hands could severely damage U.S. economic, strategic and security interests.
Given his associations, is Bob King the kind of man to be entrusted with such information?
