The Communist Party USA is very protective of its long time friend and ally Barack Obama.
There is no doubt that Obama’s relationship with the Party is long and deep. In fact it goes back before Obama was even born.
As a boy, Obama was mentored for many years by Hawaiian based communist Frank Marshall Davis. When he was active with the Chicago Communist Party in the 1940s, Frank Marshall Davis had worked closely with Vernon Jarrett, late father-in-law to Valerie Jarrett – now Obama’s closest friend and most trusted White House adviser.
Davis also worked with Chicago communist David S. Canter, who later went on to mentor David Axelrod – Obama’s close friend and long time campaign adviser.
The late Marxist academic and activist Manning Marable, wrote in the December 2008 issue of British Trotskyist journal Socialist Review, that Obama worked in Chicago with socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party.
What makes Obama different is that he has also been a community organiser. He has read left literature, including my works, and he understands what socialism is. A lot of the people working with him are, indeed, socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked with him for years…
The Communist Party knows they are on to a good thing with Obama. His policies are, in most areas, in lockstep with their own.
However, they don’t want to embarrass their “friend” by making the relationship too public.
Sensitive to criticisms of Obama’s Marxist past and socialist policies, the communists have even gone to the length of censoring their own website to protect the President.
Below is a screen shot of an article entitled “Special District Meeting on African American Equality,” taken as it appeared on the Communist Party USA website as of December 30, 2007. Note the reference to Communist Party support for Obama in the 2004 U.S. Senate primaries.
Next is a screen shot of the same article taken on Nov. 10, 2010, retrieved through wayback. Note that the statement, “Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election,” has been edited out.
Just like Comrade Stalin, the Communist Party USA is quite willing to airbrush history, to serve the “cause.”
Truth is whatever best serves the revolution.
Trevor Loudon is the author of Barack Obama, and the Enemies Within“, and is currently completing an upcoming book “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists, and Progressives in the US Congress”.

each time i used to read smaller posts that as well clear
their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am
reading at this time.
You know, I think it’s about time the people showed the politicians who’s really the boss around here.
Face facts, they can use the power of their offices to extort whatever money they want from some in order to hand it others to buy their vote.
We are powerless to stop them at that level.
There is only one way to exert control over the process, call it a general strike, going Galt or whatever.
The only power we have is to not make money for them to steal.
Not everyone can just chuck it all and tell the taxman to stick it, but short-term stoppages will demonstrate our point.
The people who pay the bills need to show the looting politicians that we’ve had it with them.
The most appropriate day for this would be the day of the big bite – the Infernal Revenue Service’s deadline to file your return: April 15th.
There can be no doubt that Frank Marshall Davis knew the laws requiring Communists to disclose their party affiliation. He also knew why it should be kept a secret. It can not be considered a theory that he did not warm the young Obama that he must never admit his associations or he would be unpopular and even watched just as he was. It is no surprise, especially after reading Elana Kagan’s thesis, that the “party” would intentionally remain in apparent disunity given the acts of congress, Title 50,Chapter 23, sub. IV, might well be used against the whole at once and it would better suit the party to shield all but the CPUSA. That the factions are all welcome participants in Obama’s circles, only excluding Van Jones because of his sloppy trail and subsequent outing, ought to remove all doubt they are acting in unison under one party. To allow that party to call itself whatever it likes in order to not be called what it is takes a remarkable amount of ignorance. I read section 842 of the above mentioned law to be inclusive of all factions no matter what their proclaimed differences are, petty as they are, since they if fact act in unison, vote in solidarity and pursue the same goal, the overthrow of the Constitutional Republic.
Well, Michelle Obama did say we have to change our history, and that’s exactly what they’re doing.
