Why The Communists Are Happy With Obama

In August 2008, Sweetness & Light warned CPUSA And Obama Platforms Are Identical

 

In November 2008, WorldNetDaily reported Communist Party ecstatic over Ď08 election results.  Amazingly a blogger in New Zealand saw as early as June 2007 Why the Communist Party USA may decide your future.

 

The Communist Party USA Platform -- has Obama met their expectations?

 

1.  Immediate Relief


1.1 A moratorium on foreclosures and evictions.  Obama delivers
1.2 Reset mortgages so payments are affordable.  Obama delivers
1.3 No bailouts for banks.  Obama disappoints
1.4 Extend unemployment compensation, increase payments and eligibility.  Obama delivers
1.5 Increase food stamps, WIC, childrenís health ins., energy assistance.  Obama delivers
1.6 Assist state and local governments.  Obama delivers
1.7 Fund "ready-to-go" infrastructure projects.  Obama delivers

2.  A Peacetime, Green Jobs Economy for All

3.  Restore Civil Rights, Bill of Rights, Separation of Powers

4.  Strength through Peace
  

Itís amazing how well Obama and his Democratic latchkeys have done in less than a year to fulfill the Communist platform. 

 

They have three more years to do the rest.

Obama Lies About Being A Bolshevik
Obama says 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:  CPUSA: Obama Will change USA Forever," and they're happy about it!  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 Celebrates Obama's First Six Months.'"  "Communist Party USA to Take the Streets for Obama," August 10th, 2009.  This is to oppose the tea parties and the town hall meetings that were going on.  "Communist Party USA Honors SEIU and the AFSCME Union Leaders."  "CPUSA Speech Lays Out Obama Agenda."  I mean, it's right there for people to see; and these are not, you know, play communists.  They're not all that powerful here.  Well, they are actually with Obama in office.  But he says that he's not a Bolshevik.  "I'm not.  I'm not an ideologue," but he most definitely is.

Socialized Medicine Is The Goal

Trevor Loudon has argued here, here and here that the Communist Party USA, Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism and the Democratic Socialists of America are the driving force behind the Obama push for healthcare "reform".

He argues here that the no matter what bill Obama gets passed (if any), it will only be used by the US far left as a stepping stone to fully socialized healthcare.

Phil E. Benjamin is a Senior Editor and a member of the Editorial Collective of Political Affairs, theoretical journal of the Communist Party USA.

Read what he just wrote on the Political Affairs editor's blog and tell me I'm wrong:
    

It is time to dump the Policy Wonks and Democratic Party wise guys.

Everyone said and now everyone knows that the SIMPLER THE BETTER.  The more complicated, the more to make people worried about the details.  And, that worry becomes grist for the Republican media machines.

So the first step for health reform is to Dump the Congressional Bills......both of them feed into the Republican machine for 2010 elections.  Mass. showed that.

We must propose what we know people want and already like.

1. Maintain and expand the Veterans Medical and Hospitals Systems;

2 Expand the Federally Qualified Community Health Centers;

3. Drop the Medicare age to 55 to 64 ---- Republicans will not mess with that;

4. Elevate Medicaid to 150% of the Federal Poverty Level;

5. Open the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program for non federal employees to join;

6 Eliminate Pre-Existing Conditions Exclusions

By doing these actions; you are dealing with winners and known programs.  Each of these programs is supported by those in them.

By dumping the Health Exchanges you eliminate the number one grist for the Republican mills, i.e., forcing people to buy insurance.  And, to win working people back, voters they are; Dump the taxing of benefits.

These should be done immediately....no waiting time.

Then in a year or two we do another step.

These can and will lead to larger reforms such as a federally administered Single Payer system; and, toward our ultimate goal of a National Health Service in our country.

         
Well?
 
John Wojcik draws our attention to this piece From the true believers at the Communist Party USAís People's World (formerly the Daily Worker):
    

Reports released this week show that 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 Act.

"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 to 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.

But the CPUSA needs to get a list of these 2,000,000 jobs the recovery act created (not saved, created) to Evan Bayh.  Maybe they can get him to change his mind about retiring.

Meanwhile, back here on earth, we have begun to think that we should call Obamaís stimulus package -- the "simulus" -- since it was a sham from the gitgo.

Looks like everybody got the "2,000,000 jobs" memo.  Interesting to see who's on the White House's "distribution" list.

From the People's World "About" page:

The People's World / Mundo Popular is a national, grassroots newspaper and the direct descendant of the
Daily Worker.  Published by Long View Publishing Co., the PW reports on and analyzes the pressing issues and struggles of the day: for workers' rights, peace, equality, social and economic justice, democracy, civil liberties, women's rights, protection of the environment, and more. -- Sounds just like Obama's agenda, doesn't it?
  
The PW is known for its partisan coverage.  We take sides -- for truth and justice.  We are partisan to the working class, racially and nationally oppressed peoples, women, youth, seniors, international solidarity, Marxism and socialism.  We enjoy a special relationship with the Communist Party USA, founded in 1919, and publish its news and views.
Communist Boss Tells Comrades to Stick With Democrats
Communist Party USA infiltration of the Democratic Party has waxed and waned over the years, but now seems to be reaching for a new high.

A big part of Communist Party National Secretary Sam Webb's job consists of working to unite a fractious left behind and within the Democrat Party.

Webb calls this the "people's movement" -- in effect all radical forces under the leadership or influence of the Communist Party and its allies in labor, the churches, "community organizations," and the peace movement.

Webb understands that the Democrats are the best vehicle to push the Communist agenda at this point.

Writing in the Peoples World Sam Webb explains:
    

Only a particular kind of movement possessing a particular kind of strategic vision has the capacity to challenge the array of forces on the other side of the class struggle at this juncture.

At its core are the multi-racial working class (and its organized sector), the racially and nationally oppressed people, women, and youth.  But gathered in and around it are many other social movements, including undocumented immigrants, and political forces, including the Obama administration and sections of the Democratic Party.

Yes, 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 Barbara Lee, John Conyers, Danny K. Davis and Dennis Kucinich 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 Communist Party USA (CPUSA), they recently published an Obama love note entitled, "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 mobilization.

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.

But Organizing 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.

And, he goes on, here . . .

It is evident that this article was a joint effort between CPUSA and OFA.  It would be interesting to know who initiated the project -- the commies or the White House.

Obama is just
surrounded by communists and socialists -- how many hard-core Marxists do you know?  This guy ain't on the level.
From The Communist Party USA Convention
Trevor Loudon says Joelle Fishman (photo), from Connecticut is chair of the Communist Party USA's (CPUSA) political action commission, the Party organ dedicated to coordinating the communist's electoral work with their labor union, "community organization" and Democratic Party allies.

She is also the daughter-in-law of WW2 era Soviet spy, Victor Perlo.

At the Communist Party convention over the weekend, Fishman told delegates that the "party plans to focus on key House and Senate races around the country" to "decisively defeat the extreme right..."

From the Peoples World:
    

"The 2010 elections are the next step of our continuing project to decisively defeat the extreme right and expand democratic rights, including ridding the federal government of entrenched corporate interests," Joelle Fishman, chair of the party's political action commission told the delegates.

"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."

    
The CPUSA, like many progressive economists, has been saying that it is precisely massive government spending that can create the millions of jobs needed to solve the economic recession and cure deficit problems over the long term.  The party says nothing less than a new WPA type program is needed immediately.

Fishman said there were many encouraging signs already in the electoral arena.

She noted how the International Association of Machinists played a critical role in Pennsylvania where voters turned Sen. Arlen Specter out in favor of Rep. Joe Sestak. Specter had double crossed the labor movement on election law reform by his waffling on support for the Employee Free Choice Act.
    

"In Western Pennsylvania, Republicans poured $10 million into capturing the seat held by Rep. John Murtha, but they did not succeed," said Fishman.  "They rejected slanders against Democrat Mark Critz and attacks on Nancy Pelosi and President Obama."

    
Fishman also noted how conservative Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas was forced into a runoff election with labor-backed Bob Halter after she voted against health care reform.

The party plans to focus on key House and Senate races around the country, she said.

Up for election this year are 435 House seats and a third of the Senate seats. For the GOP to gain control of the House there would have to be a shift of 45 seats. For Republicans to gain control of the Senate 6 seats would have to shift.

The top "battleground states," according to Fishman, are California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri and Ohio, all states where there are large Communist Party organizations.
Communists Plan Obama/Democrat Comeback in November
The New Zeal blog has published excerpts from a special report to the recent 29th National Convention of the Communist Party USA, by Joelle Fishman. Joelle Fishman's role in the Communist Party's Political Action Commission, which gives her responsibility for organizing Party support for "progressive" Democratic Party candidates at the state, congressional, senate and presidential level. She is also, incidentally, the daughter - in - law of late Soviet spy, Victor Perlo
    
    
Fishman acknowledges that the Communist Party supported Barack 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 finance capital.

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 president."

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 transitional stage."

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 we can!"

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 accordingly."

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 suicide."

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.
Communists Use Democrats To Destroy "Ultra-Right"
KeyWiki blog says The Republican Party and the "Tea Party Movement" need to understand that their real enemy is not the Democrats, but the people behind the Democrats.

One of the major forces behind the Democrats is the almost forgotten and hugely underestimated Communist Party USA.

The Communist regard the Democrats as little more than a tool, a conduit for their own agenda.

This quote from an October 2007 Young Communist League board report, by YCL leader Erica Smiley illustrates my point;
   

But even though the ultra-right is in retreat, kicking and screaming and even calling Hillary Clintonís half public-half private healthcare proposal "socialist", they still havenít been defeated.  As Communists, we have to finish the task of isolating the ultra-right and completely removing them from power -- using the Democrats to finish the job.

    
In communist terms, The "ultra-right", is any organized force to the "right" of the now completely leftist Democratic Party.  That is "middle America," the entire Republican Party and nowadays, most certainly the Tea Party Movement.

The communists will have no qualms about using the Democrats to destroy their "ultra-right" opponents, just as they will not hesitate to smash the Democrats when the time is appropriate.
"Obama Will Open the Door"
Trevor Loudon says, that unlike some "fair weather friends" on the left, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) has never wavered in its commitment to its "friend" Barack Obama.

The Party has backed Barack Obama for many years and recognizes that he has the potential to deliver the "change" they have campaigned for since their foundation in 1919.

While leery of making open statements of support of Obama, in the current political climate, the Party still likes to send little signals to its supporters from time to time -- to keep the troops on target.

The latest comes from Michigan Party supporter, Kae Halonen, a "red diaper baby," with roots in the "Red Finnish" communities of Minnesota and the Pacific Northwest.

Halonen was recently in Seattle to visit a relative.  While there she attended a July 18th Peoples World benefit picnic in Gennessee Park.

Kae Halonen addressed the assembled comrades, quoting the "progressive evangelist, Rev. Don Wallis", that basic change requires two things: a mighty movement that "knocks on the door" and someone inside willing to "open the door."  Some on the left, she said, "don't understand that we need someone who will open the door...George W. Bush would never open the door no matter how hard we knocked.  President Obama will open the door."

The Communist Party aims to lead a "mighty movement" against the U.S. government, but like the Greek army outside the gates of Troy, they know they cannot succeed without inside help.
Democrat?  Communist?  Is There A Difference Anymore?
The CPUSA Political Action Commission has a blog headline that says, "12 days to go: The election depends on you!"

If the grand alliance that elected Barack Obama comes out in full force to vote we can stop the Tea Party/Republican takeover, continue moving forward and push further for green jobs, union rights, health care and the safety net for the common good.

If voters fail to turnout, the Tea Party/Republican "Promise to America" alternative is clear: continued tax breaks for the top richest two percent which will increase the deficit, privatization of social security, repeal of health care and financial reform, no extension of unemployment compensation, outsourced jobs, increased racism and severe limits to democratic rights.

Momentum has been on the side of the Democrats in the last few days, but most races are too close to call.  Hundreds of millions more dollars are being pumped into smear ads on TV, radio and internet in an attempt to defeat progressives and suppress voter turnout.  The money is coming from shadow groups funded by unlimited corporate contributions.

When the choice before our country is made clear, voters can be convinced to go to the polls.

Everyone can make a difference.  If you are not already connected, plug into one of the opportunities listed below, or find something in your own neighborhood to make your voice heard with door knocking, phone banking and helping line up others to volunteer as well.

"If voters fail to turnout, ...continued tax breaks for the top richest two percent which will increase the deficit, privatization of social security, repeal of health care and financial reform, no extension of unemployment compensation, outsourced jobs, increased racism and severe limits to democratic rights."

Nothing particularly "communist" about this.  These are straight from the Democrat's talking points.

Just consider putting your ballot in a cardboard box with an Obama logo on it.  What could go wrong?

Communists Caught Altering History to Protect Obama
Trevor Loudon says Communists have a well deserved reputation for altering history or "sanitizing the past to suit their purpose.  But that's all in the past, they are open and honest now.... they would never use deception to advance their agenda, would they......?

Obama has a long history with several radical groups, including the Communist Party USA.

The communists naturally want to protect their "friend" from negative fallout should such associations become publicly known.

It seems they are even willing to censor or alter their own publications to hide evidence of their past support for Obama.  Thankfully the "Wayback Machine" provides proof positive of the communist's deliberate dishonesty

The original article, taken as it appeared on the Communist Party USA website as at December 30, 2007.  Note the reference to Communist Party support for Obama in the 2004 U.S. Senate primaries.
    

This was also reflected in the historic election of Barack Obama.  Our party actively supported Obama during the primary election.

    
And here is the edited article (current version).

Note that the sentence, "Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election." has been scrubbed from the above article.

Rub the communists face in their clumsy attempt at deception.  Email this post to every patriot you know.  Also send it to any honest Democrats in your circle of friends or colleagues and ask them what they think of this blatant attempt to hide the Communist Party's ties to Obama.
Obama's Labor Secretary To Honor Communist
Aaron Klein is reporting that a labor group affiliated with the nation's largest union is giving its highest prize for journalism to a writer from the official newspaper of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).

Obama's labor secretary, Hilda Solis, will be on hand for the awards dinner this week to lead a special session on how to respond to "expected" attacks from the new Republican-led House.

The International Labor Communications Association, or ILCA, a national coalition of labor organizers, is bestowing its media award to John Wojcik, the labor editor for People's World, the official CPUSA publication.

He will receive a feature-writing prize for his Sept. 19, 2009, story, "Steeler Nation Fights Its Way Back," a short article on the alleged hardships of steelworkers.

The ILCA is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, the largest union in the country.

According to an announcement of the Nov. 19 awards ceremony, Solis will give attendees "a chance to learn how the Department of Labor will respond to the expected attacks that will come from the new Republican majority in the House."

The CPUSA has long celebrated the role of labor unions in electing Democrats.

Obamaís Governance Is Right Out Of Communist Plan
Suzanne Eovaldi 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.

Bradford 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 America."

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 textbooks."

    
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.

Another great 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."

The breakdown 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.

The difference between calling Obama an anti-colonialist, a socialist, or a Marxist mentored by a top operative of the CPUSA is that one category should immediately earn you an FBI investigation.  Former FBI agent Max Noel says the Bureau used to investigate candidates for federal employment by analyzing Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty to the United States.  The first letters in those words make up the acronym CARL.

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 White House.

Joe Iosbaker and Stephanie Weiner, who are husband and wife, had their homes and offices raided because of suspicions that they were providing support to foreign terrorist organizations.  Both of them have been associated with the Marxist-Leninist Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) and the Chicago New Party that included Barack Obama.

FRSO is one of several U.S.-based communist groups affiliated with a global organization known as the International Communist Movement.  Other American affiliates are the Communist Party USA, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, the Progressive Labor 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.

Despite what you hear or see from the major media, international communism is not dead.

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 Progressive Democrats?  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 corporate backers.

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.

In 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 then that.

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 election.

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.

Continue reading Obama's backers in the CPUSA here . . .

The italics are mine, but they remind us that Obama's "change" and the CPUSA's "change" are indeed the same thing.

Every time Obama refers to "change" he is talking about socialism.
