I have contended for some time that the Communist Party USA has a favoured candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.
While the CPUSA has yet to openly favour any of the top four contenders-Clinton, Obama, Edwards and Richards, all their hints to the Party faithful point in Barack Obama’s direction.
Openly far left Democratic contender Dennis Kucinich, will be backed by the CPUSA, as a lightning rod for the left. He will then stands aside, then CPUSA support will shift to one of the top four.
I think that unless Clinton moves too far ahead, that CPUSA controlled unions and pressure groups will shift support to Obama, at Kucinich’s urging.
Read the two following reports and note the pattern. This is how the CPUSA gets what it wants in Congress, without ever having to earn a single vote from the public.
The process is simple. Get your friends in Congress to propose bills the CPUSA wants passed. Also get those friends to support and endorse those candidates you view as sympathetic to your cause.
Conyers and Kucinich, Lee, Rangel and others dominate the Congressional Progressive Caucus and he Congressional Black Caucus (which means well over a third of Congress) and important party lobby groups such as Progressive Democrats of America.
They can therefore weild huge influence on which Bills are supported in Congress and which sympathetic candidates get the support that counts.
Obama’s announcement was a pivotal moment in our time, with many blacks saying they never thought they’d live to see a serious candidate of color run for president of the United States.
“I don’t believe anyone can doubt his intellectual ability to become president,” Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) told BlackAmericaWeb.com Saturday. “I think he can attract people across the color line, and I think he can attract African-Americans, even though polls suggest that he doesn’t have the pull in his own ranks as Hillary Clinton does.”
Conyers said Obama approached him last month about his interest in the White House, and the veteran congressman from Detroit encouraged him to run.
“He’s worked closely with Rainbow PUSH and within our community,” Conyers said. “He’s worked with low-income people and particularly with young men and women. He has a great depth of experience in these areas.”
From The Hill
Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), who has formally backed Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), is lobbying the 2008 presidential hopeful to back his universal healthcare bill.
In a recent interview, the House Judiciary Committee chairman told The Hill that Obama “is taking a serious look” at H.R. 676, which has 60 cosponsors, including presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.).
That’s how it works readers. That’s how a Marxist-Leninist Party of a few thousand members can influence the direction of the most powerful “capitalist” nation on earth.
