There are many speculative books, articles and brochures about President Barack Obama’s past. This article does not contain any information about his birthday. It is a thoroughly researched, detailed historical analysis of the Communist Party’s USA influence on President Obama’s mentors, friends and supporters. This article was written by probably the most respected authority on Communist tactics and strategies Mr Herbert Romerstein. Serving as an Investigator for the House Committee on Un-American Activities, Minority Chief Investigator for the House Committee on Internal Security, Professional Staff Member for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and head of the Office to Counter Soviet Disinformation for US Information Agency he collected invaluable information about secret actions of American and Soviets communists. He tried to pass this information to the public before the last presidential elections. However, even many conservatives had trouble to see the Communist threat. As many other people also believed in the fairy tale about the end of Communism and the Cold War. In the article, Mr Romerstein points also at the current Communist strategies quoting from their own statements and writings. He proves that gathered around Communist lesbian’s and gay’s goal is to influence the United States policy towards Cuba. Mr Romerstein’s article is revealing and informative.

On March 24, 2008, The Nation magazine carried the announcement of “Progressives for Obama.” One of the leaders was Tom Hayden, a founder of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the group that spawned the Weather Underground communist terrorist organization.  For many years, groups aligning themselves with the Communists adopted the title “Progressives.” The Communists called them “sympathizers”, “fellow travelers”, “left- wingers” and “useful idiots.” Willi Muenzenberg, the propaganda expert of the Communist International, referring to the communist front organizations that he set up to attract these people, called them “Innocents’ Clubs.” The modern terms are “mindless” or “clueless.”
Earl Browder, who headed the Communist Party in the 1930s until 1945, boasted in 1960 about the success of the communists under his leadership. He said, “Entering the 1930′s as a small ultra-left sect of some 7,000 members, remnant of the fratricidal factional struggle of the 1920′s that had wiped out the old ‘left wing’ of American socialism, the CP rose to become a national political influence far beyond its numbers (at its height it never exceeded 100,000 members), on a scale never before reached by a socialist movement claiming the Marxist tradition. It became a practical power in organized labour, its inluence became strong in some state organizations of the Democratic Party (even dominant in a few for some years), and even some Republicans solicited its support. It guided the anti-Hitler movement of the American League for Peace and Democracy that united a cross-section of some five million organized Americans (a list of its sponsors and speakers would include almost a majority of Roosevelt’s Cabinet, the most prominent intellectuals, judges of all grades up to State Supreme Courts, church leaders, labour leaders, etc.). Right-wing intellectuals complained that it exercised an effective veto in almost all publishing houses against their books, and it is at least certain that those right-wingers had extreme dificulty getting published.”  (emphasis added).
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, documents from the Soviet archives became available showing that the Communist Paty USA was receiving two to three million dollars a year until 1988. 
The collapse of the Soviet Union had many effects but one was a split in the Communist Party USA. A number of Communist Party officials and activists, with the Soviet Union no longer there to offer instructions and funding, and disillusioned with the dictatorial rule of Party leader Gus Hall, left to form their own group, the Committees of Correspondence (CoC), also known as the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS). It held its first conference in Berkeley, California, July 17-19, 1992. Charlene Mitchell, who had been a leader of the Califonia Communist Party, spoke at the conference and described its origin. She said, “In December 1991, barely half a year ago, a number of members of the Communist Paty met in the now notoious Room 211. What began as a moment to take stock and ponder where to go from there has now become a very different entity. People from the Communist Paty, from CrossRoads, from the Democratic Socialists of America, from NCIPA [National Committee for Independent Political Action], from Solidarity, from the Socialist Organizing Network and many others, including independent leftists and independent socialists, have come together here in Berkeley.”
