he's not a Bolshevik but, folks, the
Communist Party USA loves Obama. Here are just some sample
headlines. "CPUSA and Obama Platforms are Identical." August
8th, 2008: "Forget for the moment about Bill Ayers and Obama's
other Communist friends and mentors of the distant past," and they go on
to cite how his agenda and theirs, Obama's and the CPUSA, are identical.
Look, we had some fun with this in the first hour but Osama has
come out and started spouting every talking point on global warming from
Al Gore and Nobel Peace Prize-winning United Nations to Barack Obama:
Beating up on America, America is destroying the planet, America didn't
sign Kyoto; Osama's signaling his desire to destroy USA, its economy,
Western civilization, capitalism. It's just what the Communist
Party USA wants, just what Obama is doing. Here's another:

August 7th, 2008: "Communist Party CPUSA Endorses Obama."
"Communist Party USA Hails Obama Victory." "'From the
understandably elated editors of the Communist Party USA's people's
weekly, formerly the Daily Worker, July 1st, 2009: 'Communist Party USA

the tea parties and the town hall meetings that were going on.

Republican claims that the stimulus was a failure are dead wrong and
the labor movement is losing no time by
demanding even more government spending on jobs to break the
neck of the Great Recession.
"The fact is that the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act is still working," the AFL-CIO said in
a statement late yesterday, "generating more
than 2 million jobs and laying the foundation for future
economic growth." The federation said the positive results
indicate that the government must continue spending heavily to
create millions of additional jobs.
In a report also issued
yesterday, Ross Eisenberry, vice president of the Economic Policy
Institute, tracked monthly job losses before and after the Recovery
"With unemployment at 9.7 percent today, itís hard to
appreciate how much more damage the stimulus investments prevented,"
he said, adding, "Without the more than 2
million jobs generated by the Recovery Act, the unemployment
rate would now exceed 11 percent."
Another indication that
the recovery package is working, some economists say, is that the
economy grew 5.7 percent last quarter -- the largest gain in six
years. These economists are saying the growth is largely due
to the Recovery Act and that those who say Obamaís stimulus plan
didnít work are just plain wrong.
"The fact is that the
Recovery Act did work," declared EPI President Lawrence Mishel,
"precisely as it was designed to work and it has helped
produce roughly 2 million jobs that wouldnít exist if it
hadnít become law." Ö
One union leader said the Recovery Act
impacted on much more than just the critical area of job creation,
as essential as that is to an economic recovery. AFT President
Randi Weingarten called the stimulus a "life preserver."
"Kids donít get a second chance to get a good education. The
Recovery Act was the help they needed, ensuring that schools
continued to receive resources so that teachers could teach and
students could learn."
As the great man once observed, you can fool some
of the people some of the time.

sections of the Democratic Party! Until a large section of the
mass constituency of the Democratic Party, as a result of its own
experience primarily, is ready to build a new party with a
pronounced anti-corporate vision, the broader people's movement will
have a tactical relationship to the Democrats, if it has any
political sense. Slogans like "Break with the Democrats" may
sound radical and may look good on one's resume, but at this moment
it is a recipe for marginalization.
With Party "friend"
Barack Obama in the White House, and far left Congressmen such as

pushing a near identical agenda, the Communists would be foolish to jump
the Democrat ship at this point.
|More ObamaLuv From The CPUSA
The People's World
(PW) is a news web site associated with the

"Organizing for America launches grassroots 2010 voter drive."
Writer and communist, Dan Margolis, says that the importance of the 2010
mid-term elections, not only to elect or re-elect a local member of
Congress or governor, but also to further the progressive direction of
the country, is not widely understood. Only a few, most notably
the labor movement and its allies, have already drawn up plans for
And while the Democratic National Committee, along
with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic
Congressional Campaign Committee (as well as their opposing counterparts
on the Republican side), have always sought to increase their number of
seats in the House and Senate, there has hardly ever been much of a
grassroots push to do so outside of the labor movement.
for America (OFA) aims to change that.
Seeking to build on
the momentum of the historic presidential election of 2008, and to
counter the alarming increase in extreme-right wing activism since then,
especially in the tea party movement, Organizing for America, the
grassroots organization allied with President Obama, has launched a
national on-the-ground effort to expand the Democratic majority.
The 2010 elections are just as important as the 2008 elections, many
say. This fall's elections will determine whether the country
continues to move in a progressive direction, away from the past 30
years of extremist rule. It provides the opportunity to "bring
home" the victory against the ultra-right, and knock more Republicans
out of Congress. On the other hand, victories by the Republican
ultra-right would slam on the brakes and significantly narrow the
channels for progressive action.
OFA makes the point that the
mid-term elections are crucial. In order to push forward on
government action for job creation, labor rights, civil rights,
environmental reform and other issues important to working people, the
Republicans' base must be further chipped away -- not allowed to grow.

Obama in 2008 -- though certainly not for the first time.
The 2010 elections are at the center of the
struggle for working class relief from economic crisis, poverty,
inequality and environmental devastation. Why? Because
this election will either solidify the progressive breakthrough of
2008, or send the country reeling backward. Barack Obama's
election was a victory won by an amazing broad alliance of which we
were a part. Our contribution focused on building unity,
challenging racism and expanding voter participation.
She -- yes, that's a woman -- then quotes party chairman Sam Webb and goes on
to stress the pivotal nature of the 2010 mid-term elections.
This was an extraordinary expression of
political independence from the extreme right wing. As Sam's
report reminds us, five years ago our major battle was entirely on
the defensive under George W. Bush. The question of how we
expand and build on this political independence has been a big part
of the pre-convention discussion. The 2010 mid-term elections
represent the next step of our continuing project to decisively
defeat the extreme right-wing and expand democratic rights,
including ridding the federal government of entrenched corporate
interests. All 435 House seats and a third of senate seats are
up for election. A shift of 45 seats in the House and six in
the senate would give Republicans the majority. Top
battleground states for the Senate are California, Florida,
Illinois, Missouri and Ohio. We are up against a rabid
right-wing that refuses to accept the election of the first Black
president. Republicans in Congress thought they could bring
down the presidency by blocking health care reform. The Tea
Party was birthed by media extremists and racist elements to break
up the unity of 2008. They were able to change the debate and
peel off some Democratic votes, but they were not able to stop the
legislation. Newt Gingrich is attempting to frame the 2010
elections with a new Contract on America to whip up hysteria that
government spending for social needs is against the interests of
working people. This election is about the ability of families
and youth to make it through this economic crisis. In the
first place it is about the federal government investing in job
creation targeted to the highest poverty areas with training for
displaced workers and young people. It is about relief for
cities and towns, education and youth programs, housing and health
care. Working people are angry and searching for solutions.
Voters' anger can be turned into collective action for a pro-worker
agenda or it can become manipulated by right-wing populism. So
far there are examples of both taking place. Our focus is on
building up the strength of the labor movement, racially oppressed,
women, youth along with LGBT, environment and peace allies as part
of the broad electoral alliance. This goes beyond any one
election to the need for organizing a lasting movement and building
working class leadership in our country that can reorder priorities
and change foreign policy.
Fishman then goes on to trumpet the successes of
the labor movement in countering the "Tea Party" movement, the
Republicans and "moderate" Democrats.

|Communism On The March
|J. R. Nyquist
asks if you have you ever been to the Website of the Communist Party
USA? It's worth studying, if only to compare the policy positions
taken by the Communists with your own. Are you a fellow traveler?
Are you a friend or ally of the left? Perhaps, up until now, you
have been following the party line unwittingly. And what, pray
tell, is the party line? "A better world is possible," says the
Communist Party USA, "a world where people come before profits.
That's socialism. That's our vision." The Communists also
want us to support the elimination of America's nuclear arsenal through
the observance of "Nuclear Abolition Day." They want to end the
travel ban to Communist Cuba. They condemn Israel's brutality on
the high seas, and support oppressed people everywhere. They are
concerned about global warming, and hate the wicked machinations of
Communists aren't likely to support the
oppressed of Cuba, North Korea, China, Vietnam, or Zimbabwe.
Understandably, the American Communist does not dwell upon the
brutalities of Communist rule in other countries. He wants to
establish a positive image in order to win new "friends and allies."
As it happens, the Communists in America have countless friends and
allies: in schools and universities, on newspapers and on television,
even in government.
The leader of the Communist Party USA, Sam
Webb, offered the following "verbal remarks" to the 29th National
Convention of the Communist Party USA last month: He congratulated
Communism's "friends and allies" on recent achievements. "What a
difference between now and five years ago when we convened in Chicago!"
he exclaimed. "At that time a Puerto Rican woman raised in the
South Bronx didn't sit on the Supreme Court. Then the president
didn't call for the abolition of nuclear weapons. Millions had no
health care and no promise of it in the near future.... We weren't
in a position to fight for a progressive agenda, but on the defensive.
The pendulum of power didn't yet tilt in favor of working people, people
of color, women and their allies. And, an African American wasn't
According to Webb, Obama's election ended "the long
night of rule" when the country's most reactionary groups were in power.
The Communists, with help from their allies and friends, had pushed back
the reactionaries. But, he warned, "Corporate negligence is
killing miners and oil workers" while a "racist and anti-immigrant
offensive is thick in the air, the planet's temperature is rising, debt
is piling up, and the right wing and finance capital ... are regrouping
and trying their damnedest to reconstitute their power." The key
to thwarting rightwing extremism, lectured Webb, is to keep following
the applied strategy that "deepened our mass connections" contributing
to the "historic victory in 2008...." It is vital, Webb explained,
"that we further build and unite the working class based coalition that
came together to elect President Obama." This coalition must grow
stronger, in order to "consolidate the victory against rightwing
extremism and, in doing so, weaken the capitalist class as a whole."
The Communists, says Webb, know that they cannot "skin the rightwing
cat" by themselves. They need a popular movement up front, a broad
"people's coalition" that extends far outside the political left.
The Communist Party also needs "good sense in its strategic orientation,
flexibility in its tactics, and freshness and imagination in its
analysis." In that event, says Webb, Communism's best days "are
ahead of us!" It is also important to realize, he explained, that
"we are part of an international movement." Yes, that's right.
Part of something much larger.
A decisive victory over the right
is possible, noted the Communist leader. "Thus, the struggle
against the right, as some suggest, doesn't submerge or bypass or
postpone the class struggle; on the contrary, it is evident that it
brings to the surface, clears the ground, and creates a more favorable
terrain for a more open struggle against finance capital, corporate
power, neo-liberalism, and imperial rule. For now we are in a
The language is familiar to those who have
studied the long range strategy of the Communist movement globally.
It is also the language of Soviet strategy. "In short," said Webb,
"people's anger is growing, the popular mood is changing, and the
coalition that elected the president is moving forward again. Yes
And yes, the Communists can. How is this
possible? Lenin provided an answer many years ago when he wrote a
famous little aside, which reads as follows: "As a result of my
observations," noted Lenin, "I have concluded that the so-called
cultured classes of Western Europe and America are incapable of
comprehending the current situation and the real balance of forces;
these classes should be regarded as deaf and dumb and treated
In light of this, Lenin conceived of a special
maneuver. He proposed that Communism might appear to lose control
of the Soviet government, and Russia might swerve toward capitalism.
"The deaf and dumb will believe it," he emphasized. "Telling the
truth is a bourgeois superstition. On the contrary, it is the end
that sanctifies the lie. While chasing profits in the Soviet
market, the world's capitalists will close their eyes to reality and
thus change into deaf and dumb blind men. They will give us
credits that will help us to maintain Communist Parties in their
countries and, by supplying us with essential materials, will rebuild
the war industry we need for our future victorious attacks on our
suppliers. In other words, they will be working toward their own
So the leader of the Communist Party USA can say
openly, in plain view, what his party is doing. The deaf and dumb
will not realize what is happening. The top Communist leadership
is calling for "an incredible grassroots effort" by labor, women, youth
immigrants and "racially oppressed people." These will be
mobilized to "turn back rightwing extremism and increase the Democratic
majority in both chambers in Congress." Nobody believes that the
Communist Party USA is behind anything. It is hardly understood,
at the same time, why it is Russia's "democratic" leaders haven't buried
Lenin. "What is the moral of the story?" asks Webb. "It
isn't that socialism is around the corner; it isn't." But a new
era is upon us, "defined by an intensification of class and people's
struggles...." As Fredrick Engels once wrote: "With this
successful utilization of universal suffrage ... an entirely new method
of proletarian struggle came into operation...."
This is the game
of hate, as played today.

|Obamaís Governance Is Right Out Of
says the Communist plan of forty five declared goals for taking over
America without waging a messy war contains several items that are
eerily similar to Barack Obamaís criticism of our U.S. Constitution.
Obama has said
our sacred Constitution is "fundamentally flawed" because it lacks a
mechanism for redistribution of wealth from those who create it to those
who merely consume it.
"The Constitution is a charter of
negative liberties," Obama told a Black radio station audience about
seven years before he ran for president. Perhaps Obama isnít
familiar with the words of William Bradford the leader of Pilgrims.
characterized redistribution of wealth as a total failure because
"men didnít like having to share the fruits of their hard labor with
other men who wouldnít work."
The plan for taking over America
was read into
our Congressional record in 1963 by Florida Democrat A.S. Herlong, Jr.
It contains the following points: "Discredit the American Constitution
by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs."
This chilling goal is so similar to the stated criticism Obama made of
our founding document that we need to constantly be aware of how he and
his crew are trying to, in his own words, "fundamentally transform
Did he have these Communist goals at the ready when he
framed his speech just five days before his victory? A review of
what the Communists planned revealed by Herlong, nearly 50 years ago, is
frightening because of how much of this insidious plot is coming true.
For instance, point 15 says, "Capture one or both of the political
parties in the U.S."(no question this one has been met). The next
goal says, "Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic
American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil
rights." Over and over we have seen the will of millions of voters
overturned by just one judge.
Again and again we see decisions
from un-elected government bureaucrats being allowed to abrogate the
wishes of the American people, and what is worse, we are witnessing the
acquiescence of our elected officials who are allowing this to happen!
Goal 17 in this scheme calls for the Communists to:
"Get control of the schools. Use them
as conduits to force socialism and current communist propaganda into
the minds of impressionable children. Soften the curriculum.
Get control of teachersí associations. Put the party line in
In the outstanding documentary "Waiting for
Superman," noted educational reformer Geoffrey Canada asked, "Why is
this thing (public school system) an utter failure?" He answered
that bad schools make for bad neighborhoods which is the opposite of
what weíve been told many times as "educrats" make us feel guilty about
not giving enough money to our schools.
educational reformer Howard Fuller talked about the "Dance of the
Lemons" which forces school officials to rehire bad teachers over and
over again. Both men stressed the involvement of the NEA and AFT
which gave "$55 million to federal candidates, more than any other
lobby, and 90% of those teachersí dollars went to the Democrat party, a
wholly owned subsidiary of the teachersí unions."
of American morality, fostering pornography under the guise of freedom
of speech, plus legal initiatives eliminating prayer in our schools are
recommended in the Communist plan as is using our legal systemís
principle of separation of church and state to consolidate their
victories. These things are happening now.
Why are we
letting our country be destroyed from within? When will this
scheme be revealed for what it is?
|Exposing Un-American Activities
|Dinesh DíSouza says in his new book that Barack
Obama is an anti-colonialist. Stanley Kurtz has a new book,
Radical-in-Chief, which says Obama is a socialist. The new book
Dupes by Paul Kengor tells the unvarnished truth. And thatís
because he makes use of material we started releasing back in February
0f 2008 about Obamaís communist mentor, Communist Party USA member Frank
Marshall Davis. New Zeal blogger Trevor Loudon broke that story
and we confirmed it.
Cliff Kincaid says I hate to say, "We told
you so," but Herbert Romerstein and I held a briefing in May of 2008 in
Washington, D.C. releasing two reports, "Communism in Chicago and the
Obama Connection," and "Communism in Hawaii and the Obama Connection."
Then, in August of 2008, I released the 600-page FBI file on Frank
Marshall Davis. The response from the media included Dana Milbank
of the Washington Post making fun of us and Matt Drudge of the Drudge
Report refusing to run paid advertising on the Obama-Davis connection.
The liberal and conservative media had their heads in the sand.
They couldnít come to grips with the unprecedented prospect of a
possible agent of influence for the international Marxist movement
occupying the Oval Office.
Herb Romerstein is a veteran
congressional researcher and patriot who was ridiculed by Milbank as a
"relic" of the anti-communist period. Kengor dedicates his book to
Romerstein, the author of numerous books on Soviet espionage operations,
describing him as a human Cold War archive. Thank God we have
patriots like Herbert Romerstein.
Paul Kengor says that
conservatives were reluctant to face up to the truth about Obama because
they didnít want to be accused of "McCarthyism" for raising the issue of
his communist connections. The 600-page Kengor book includes the
excerpts of the Davis FBI files that others have shied away from.
Kengor, a professor at Grove City College, is not afraid to tackle the
terrible truth. We need more like him in academia.

Obama could not have been elected president if he
had been subjected to the CARL test. Leaving Davis aside -- and he
was on the FBIís "security index" -- Obamaís relationship with communist
terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn was enough to disqualify him
for the presidency. Photos of the Weather Underground bomb factory
they abandoned in San Francisco in 1971 reveal these Cuban-trained
terrorists were working on anti-personnel weapons, including stabbing
devices, and had C-4 plastic explosive.
The big news today is
that some of the people who have been supporting Obama from the start in
Chicago are now under investigation by the FBI, suspected of providing
support to foreign terrorist organizations in Latin America and the
Middle East. This is a trail that could lead all the way to the

affiliated with a global organization known as the International
Communist Movement. Other American affiliates are the Communist

Party, and the Workers World Party.
Since 1992, the International
Communist Movement has sponsored the International Communist Seminar
(ICS), organized every year in Brussels, Belgium, and which "gathers
parties and organizations which defend Marxism-Leninism and proletarian
internationalism, and which oppose revisionism." About 150
organizations of Africa, Latin America, North America, Asia and Europe
have participated in its sessions.

|The Communists And The Democrats
If you think this cartoon is silly propaganda,
check this out, the
"CPUSA Program, The Road to Socialism USA." The word "Democrat" or
"Democratic" appears many dozens of times.
What is difference
between the Communists and the
Nothing -- the Democratic Party appears to be doing an excellent job at
promoting all of the goals of the Communist Manifesto.
Obama's Commie Supporters
Jarvis Tyner, executive vice chair of the
Communist Party USA and a long-time member of the party's national
board, says there is a lively discussion in left progressive circles
about the response to the tax (and unemployment insurance) extension
compromise, and where to go after the midterm election set back.
Left and progressive activists and voters have played a very important
role in the fight against the extreme right-wing. I think most
left people understand that the main danger to democracy and progress is
coming from the extreme right, GOP/tea party and their powerful
The Communist Party will not agree with our
liberal allies at every turn, but we keep pushing for unity, we keep
working to find the tactics that keep a broad labor and people's
coalition, that keeps the movement for change going.
my view, too many people are arguing that the compromise tax bill "is
the last straw" and "I'm through with Obama." This view singles
out the tax breaks for the rich and largely ignores the concessions the
GOP had to make to the working class. The fact is if the bill had
been dumped it would have meant several million workers would go from
low income to no income. Taxes would have gone up for working people.
And Republicans would still do their thing in the next Congress
only with new powers.
I completely agree that it is wrong to
continue tax breaks for billionaires. It's like rewarding the
crooks for their crimes. But that is not the whole picture.
In my opinion, a winning strategy has to be based on the real world;
on the facts, not on subjective feelings that we all understandably have
at this point. Serious change makers should not let those
feelings be the sole guide as to how to move forward. If we want
to win more economic and democratic rights for working people,
minorities, women, young people, etc., it is self defeating to use this
tax compromise difference to "break" with Obama. (I have to add
that there are some voices who advocate a "break" that were never "with"
the coalition to elect Obama in the first place.)
The stakes for
our country and world are too high for any break -- or left/progressive
go it alone -- tactics. Theories that promote "the worst things
get, the better the opportunity for progressive change" are too
simplistic and one dimensional. The problem is more complicated
The economic crisis is deep, and millions of working
people are suffering. The facts are that the Republicans policies
deepened the crisis yet, they made the greatest gains in the last
The times we live in call for a strategy and tactics
that will bring victories; victories that can be built on.
Victories that will better conditions of life not create more suffering.
Working and racially oppressed people have suffered enough.
Everybody understands that running an election and running a country are
different. It is my view that the Obama administration policies
and legislative victories have helped tens of millions of working
families -- perhaps more then any president in living memory --
considering the short time and the challenges he faced in office.
Much more needs to be done but this struggle is a marathon not a sprint.
