As an American soldier, I was exposed to the communist environment when I visited East Berlin in 1977. As a nurse, I worked to anticipate and head off bad outcomes for my patients. Those two came together when I listened to President Obama campaign before he became president. He sounded like my East German tour guide. It could have been the same speech writer.

I asked myself why the Democratic Party would put forward a communist as a candidate. That question motivated me to read the Communist Manifesto for the first time. It motivated me to run for congress in 2010. It motivated me to put the manifesto with its major points highlighted and explained for the noncommunist on this website and then in my book, Undermining the U.S. Constitution: How the Communist Manifesto of 1848 Blueprints the Actions of the Democratic Party and President Obama Today, along with examples.

I learned that the Democratic Party has always embraced the "twins"-- socialists and communists or radical/extremist socialists. Some other names the twins go by include: liberals, progressives, leftists, environmentalists, and feminists.  Now the Democratic Party's progressives are "in bed" with the Muslim Brotherhood, and it's probably a marriage of convenience, since both believe their "like" means of lying, cheating, and stealing are justified by their "different" ends of one world government.

On this page, I list some of President Obama's communist agenda and his presidential actions to achieve it along with pertinent explanatory and/or supportive text from the Communist Manifesto. (See my book for more).

President Obama (and his czars):

1. Communist agenda
run the debt up to undermine the soundness of the money/capital supply (the fastest way to destroy an advanced capitalist country).

Obama's actions
1) growing national debt by more than one trillion dollars a year;
2) not balking at the federal reserve's borrowing 43 cents of every United States dollar spent by the federal government from China and other foreign countries, resulting in more and more tax dollars or percentage of gross domestic product leaving the USA to pay for the growing interest on the loans;
3) presented a Budget of the United States Government for 2012 with increased spending based on a projected increase in individual income taxes from 956 billion dollars in 2011 to 1,145 billion dollars in 2012 and corporation income taxes from 198 billion dollars in 2011 to 327 billion dollars in 2012, numbers so unrealistic that not even a Democrat in congress would vote for it in February 2011 (from page 174 of;
4) preventing all efforts of the USA to become energy independent and stop the one way movement of United States money to fickle countries with oil when he: visited Brazil in April 2011 and encouraged them to drill offshore, assuring them that the USA "will be their best customer" while ordering federal agencies to effectively stop offshore drilling with red tape; delayed decision on construction of the Keystone XL Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline project until after the November 2012 election, in spite of the warning that Canada would turn to Asia to sell oil rather than wait on the pipeline (November 2011);
5) in summer 2011 and against the will of congress (that is the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives) enacted "cap and trade" through federal orders which will result in higher utility rates and threatens continued coal mining in the USA.

from Section 1, Communist Manifesto:
The essential condition for the existence, and for the sway of the bourgeois class, is the formation and augmentation of capital.

2. Communist agenda
encourage unhappiness with and disapproval of the existing world order.

Obama's actions
1) did not condemn the president of Honduras for agitating for an unconstitutional 2nd term in 2009;
2) supported the allocation of $10 million in the 2009 American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (also known as [AKA] Stimulus Bill) to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for the ATF Project Gunrunner (AKA "Operation Fast and Furious") the plan for guns to Mexican drug lords (see;
3) ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" for Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States (see;
4) was hesitant to take sides on the revolution in Egypt (February 2011) or condemn the murder of anti government civilians in Iran (2009) and Libya (2011);
5) entered the conflict in Libya (March 2011) without consulting congress or seeking congressional approval (;
6) signaled in his "Arab Speech" of May 19, 2011 that America is no longer Israel's guardian by stating that Israel's borders with a new Palestinian State would be the artificial and indefensible borders drawn by the United Nations in 1947 rather than the current ones in existence since Israel's defensive 1967 Six Day War (see;
7) June 2011 decided to formally resume contact with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, which does not recognize Israel, supports terror, and spreads hatred of the U.S. and Israel;
8) gave tacit approval to the organizers of Occupy Wall Street (started September 17, 2011) to continue their protests and interference with businesses throughout America;
9) sent a letter to Congress Fri. Oct. 14, 2011 informing them that he had sent U.S. troops to Uganda (who arrived Oct. 12) and will send others to South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to put down years-long insurgencies, going against the traditional reluctance of the U.S. to intervene.

from Section 1 of the Communist Manifesto:
All previous historical movements were movements of minorities, or in the interests of minorities. The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interests of the immense majority. The proletariat, the lowest stratum of our present society, cannot stir, cannot raise itself up, without the whole superincumbent strata of official society being sprung into the air.

Though not in substance, yet in form, the struggle of the proletariat with the bourgeoisie is at first a national struggle. The proletariat of each country must, of course, first of all settle matters with its own bourgeoisie.

In depicting the most general phases of the development of the proletariat, we traced the more or less veiled civil war, raging within existing society, up to the point where that war breaks out into open revolution, and where the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie lays the foundation for the sway of the proletariat.

from Section 4 of the Communist Manifesto:
In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.

3. Communist agenda
destroy the credibility of capitalists within the USA and around the world to decrease resistance to the new world order.

Obama's actions
1) apologized worldwide for the United States;
2) demonized Tea Party members (once known as the "Silent Majority" or middle class) for unifying to protest the government's failure to follow the Constitution and stop the freefall in our economy with free market solutions;
3) does not act or follow through usually on his capitalist-like words from the TelePrompTer.

from Section 1 of the Communist Manifesto:
Modern industry has established the world-market, for which the discovery of America paved the way. . . .

has set up that single, unconscionable freedom -- Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation. . . .

The proletarian is without property; his relation to his wife and children has no longer anything in common with the bourgeois family-relations; modern industrial labour, modern subjection to capital, the same in England as in France, in America as in Germany, has stripped him of every trace of national character. Law, morality, religion, are to him so many bourgeois prejudices, behind which lurk in ambush just as many bourgeois interests.

from Section 2 of the Communist Manifesto:
There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, Justice, etc. that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.

4. Communist agenda
promote working man's dissatisfaction with the capitalist or "ruling class."

Obama's actions
1) are not helping in job creation in the private sector but rather are increasing the number of federal employees across the board, including requiring the hiring of 16,000 new Internal Revenue Service agents for implementation of the health care reform bill of 2010 H.R.3590 The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as "Obamacare");
2) suppress the growth of small businesses by increasing regulations and operational costs ($1.7 trillion in 2010);
3) negatively impact the unemployment rate: reported as 8.2% for whites, 16.8% for blacks and 11.3% for Latinos in July 2011 (The New York Times September 2, 2011) and predicted by the Congressional Budget Office (September 2011) to be above 8% until 2014;
4) supported the Occupy Wall Street movement Fall 2011.

from Section 1 of the Communist Manifesto:
The modern laborer, on the contrary, instead of rising with the progress of industry, sinks deeper and deeper below the conditions of existence of his own class. He becomes a pauper and pauperism develops more rapidly than population and wealth. And here it becomes evident, that the bourgeoisie is unfit any longer to be the ruling class in society, and to impose its conditions of existence upon society as an over-riding law. It is unfit to rule because it is incompetent to assure an existence to its slave within his slavery, because it cannot help letting him sink into such a state, that it has to feed him, instead of being fed by him. Society can no longer live under this bourgeoisie, in other words, its existence is no longer compatible with society.

5. Communist agenda
promote trade unions because they upset/fight against the capitalist or "ruling class."

Obama's actions
1) announced that his agenda is the same as that of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU);
2) is pro "card check" so voting for or against unionization will no longer be done with a secret ballot;
3) is giving hundreds of waivers to trade unions so they do not have to adhere to his health care reform bill of 2010, H.R.3590 The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act;
4) actively supported Democratic party organized union demonstrations in Wisconsin and Ohio March 2011;
5) ordered the National Labor Relations Board to prevent Boeing from extending its company to the right to work state of South Carolina from the union state of Washington May, 2011.

from Section 1 of the Communist Manifesto:
But with the development of industry the proletariat not only increases in number; it becomes concentrated in greater masses, its strength grows, and it feels that strength more. The various interests and conditions of life within the ranks of the proletariat are more and more equalised, in proportion as machinery obliterates all distinctions of labour, and nearly everywhere reduces wages to the same low level. The growing competition among the bourgeois, and the resulting commercial crises, make the wages of the workers ever more fluctuating. The unceasing improvement of machinery, ever more rapidly developing, makes their livelihood more and more precarious; the collisions between individual workmen and individual bourgeois take more and more the character of collisions between two classes. Thereupon the workers begin to form combinations (Trades Unions) against the bourgeois; they club together in order to keep up the rate of wages; they found permanent associations in order to make provision beforehand for these occasional revolts. Here and there the contest breaks out into riots.

Now and then the workers are victorious, but only for a time. The real fruit of their battles lies, not in the immediate result, but in the ever-expanding union of the workers. This union is helped on by the improved means of communication that are created by modern industry and that place the workers of different localities in contact with one another. It was just this contact that was needed to centralise the numerous local struggles, all of the same character, into one national struggle between classes. But every class struggle is a political struggle. And that union, to attain which the burghers of the Middle Ages, with their miserable highways, required centuries, the modern proletarians, thanks to railways, achieve in a few years.

This organisation of the proletarians into a class, and consequently into a political party, is continually being upset again by the competition between the workers themselves. But it ever rises up again, stronger, firmer, mightier. It compels legislative recognition of particular interests of the workers, by taking advantage of the divisions among the bourgeoisie itself. Thus the ten-hours' bill in England was carried.

Altogether collisions between the classes of the old society further, in many ways, the course of development of the proletariat. The bourgeoisie finds itself involved in a constant battle.

6. Communist agenda
eliminate international borders for one world government.

Obama's actions
1) is suing the state of Arizona to prevent enforcement of Senate Bill 1070 (passed in 2010), a bill to stop the uncontrolled drug and human smuggling from Mexico;
2) mandated the medical coverage of illegal immigrants in Obamacare (health care reform bill of 2010, H.R.3590 The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), the only low income people in the United States truly not eligible for already available state Medicaid or federal Medicare;
3) ended the three decade old National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shuttle program July 2011, making the USA dependent on other countries to take an American astronaut into space (e.g., $5 million to Russia per astronaut) and at risk of threat and intimidation from other countries (e.g., satellite weapons);
4) is destroying the integrity of U.S. citizenship when he:
  a) promoted the Dream Act for legalization of illegal aliens, defeated by congress in 2010;
  b) kept Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from deporting illegals for simply being in the U.S. illegally per ICE Director John Morton's memo June 17, 2011;
  c) mandated a case-by-case review of over 300,000 illegals stuck in the federal court systems August 2011 (while waiting illegals can get work permits, jobs, free medical care and free food, see

from Section 2 of the Communist Manifesto:
The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationality.

The working men have no country. We cannot take from them what they have not got. Since the proletariat must first of all acquire political supremacy, must rise to be the leading class of the nation, must constitute itself the nation, it is, so far, itself national, though not in the bourgeois sense of the word.

National differences and antagonisms between peoples are daily more and more vanishing, owing to the development of the bourgeoisie, to freedom of commerce, to the world-market, to uniformity in the mode of production and in the conditions of life corresponding thereto.

The supremacy of the proletariat will cause them to vanish still faster. United action, of the leading civilised countries at least, is one of the first conditions for the emancipation of the proletariat.

7. Communist agenda
abolish private property because it cannot be shared by all.

Obama's actions
1) bailed out and is currently maintaining two of the biggest players in the recent economic and financial debacle: Fannie Mae (FNMA - Federal National Mortgage Association) and Freddie Mac (a branch of the Federal Housing Administration [FHA] and US Department of Housing and Urban Development [HUD]). These two Democratic party sponsored enterprises intimidate mortgage lenders into giving people without collateral easy home financing, resulting in unpaid mortgages/property taxes and repossession of their homes/property by banks;
2) push to raise income taxes and estate/inheritance/death taxes;
3) authorized the Environmental Protection Agency's use of compliance order procedures that require virtually any landowner to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in permit fees for ordinary home construction work or face hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and penalties;
4) took over student college loans from banks;
5) will not support any curbing of frivolous lawsuits that result in high legal fees and loss of property for individual Americans and expensive defensive medicine by physicians.

from Section 2 of the Communist Manifesto:
In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property. . . .Of course, in the beginning, this cannot be effected except by means of despotic inroads on the rights of property, and on the conditions of bourgeois production; by means of measures, therefore, which appear economically insufficient and untenable, but which, in the course of the movement, outstrip themselves, necessitate further inroads upon the old social order, and are unavoidable as a means of entirely revolutionising the mode of production. . . . capital is converted into common property, into the property of all members of society, personal property is not . . . .  

These measures will of course be different in different countries.

Nevertheless in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable.

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

8. Communist agenda
thwart the unfettered communication and urbanization needed by an advanced country/industrial nation and take control of communication and transportation.

Obama's actions
1) included a federal allocation of $8 billion in the 2009 $787 billion Stimulus Bill for high-speed rail;
2) included a federal allocation of $7.2 billion in the 2009 $787 billion Stimulus Bill to expand broadband for internet access to the rural areas of Montana, Minnesota, and Kansas at a cost of $7 million per existing household (Mike Huckabee on Huckabee Fox News television show 7/9/2011);
3) included a "bridge to nowhere" in California in his budget proposal of February 14, 2011;
4) obtained "kill-switch" authorization from the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to pull the plug on the Internet (as Hosni Mubarak did during Egypt's February 2011 uprising) with the FCC voting 3-2 along party lines for the Net Neutrality Act 12/21/2010 effective 2/21/2011;
5) Signed White House Executive Order #13575 Establishment of the White House Rural Council June 9, 2011 (

from Section 1 of the Communist Manifesto:
The bourgeoisie keeps more and more doing away with the scattered state of the population, of the means of production, and of property. It has agglomerated production, and has concentrated property in a few hands.

from Section 2 of the Communist Manifesto:
Nevertheless in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable. . . .

6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

9. Communist agenda
overthrow the capitalists in power and install the proletarians "in the know" (AKA communists).

Obama's actions
1) staffed his new White House administration in 2009 with more than 30 czars with far left and openly Communist backgrounds, using them rather than his congressionally vetted cabinet to plan and implement his agenda;
2) bailed out and took ownership of automobile companies (2009), "stiffing" or cheating the private investors;
3) signed into law H.R.3590 The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (2010) giving government control over 20% of the US economy with real time access to individuals' checking accounts for collection of payments and penalties;
4) (as a candidate Obama said in July 2008 that he wanted a "civilian national security force" that "would be just as powerful and well-funded as the U.S. military" [see]), obtained funding for a civilian army in the middle of the health care reform bill in 2010 (see H.R.3590. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Sec. 5210. ESTABLISHING A READY RESERVE CORPS).

from Section 2 of the Communist Manifesto:
The Communists are distinguished from the other working-class parties by this only:

(1) In the national struggles of the proletarians of the different countries, they point out and bring to the front the common interests of the entire proletariat, independently of all nationality.

(2) In the various stages of development which the struggle of the working class against the bourgeoisie has to pass through, they always and everywhere represent the interests of the movement as a whole.

The Communists, therefore, are on the one hand, practically, the most advanced and resolute section of the working-class parties of every country, that section which pushes forward all others; on the other hand, theoretically, they have over the great mass of the proletariat the advantage of clearly understanding the line of march, the conditions, and the ultimate general results of the proletarian movement.The immediate aim of the Communist is the same as that of all the other proletarian parties: formation of the proletariat into a class, overthrow of the bourgeois supremacy, conquest of political power by the proletariat. . . .

proletariat will use its political supremacy to wrest, by degrees, all capital from the bourgeoisie, to centralise all instruments of production in the hands of the State, i.e., of the proletariat organised as the ruling class; and to increase the total of productive forces as rapidly as possible. . . .

Nevertheless in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable. . . .

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

10. Communist agenda
revise history so people will forget it and not resist the new world order.

Obama's actions
1) cut off funding for the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program in May 2009, a popular voucher program for students in Washington, DC to escape failing public schools;
2) did not renew a $170 million 2-year program to fund Historically Black Colleges and Universities;
3) increased centralized federal control of education through increased funding with funding mandates in his budget proposal 2/14/2011.

11. Communist agenda
acceptance of worldwide dominance by the communist party.

Obama's actions
1) is silent or deferring to the United Nations (UN) on international affairs (2009);
2) reported Arizona to the UN Human Rights Council (August 2010) for immigration law S.B. 1070, implying Arizona is under UN jurisdiction;
3) sought approval of the UN and not congress before sending soldiers to Libya (March 2011);
4) took "a back seat" to UN in USA's "kinetic military action" in Libya (2011) and;
5) signaled in his "Arab Speech" of May 19, 2011 that America is no longer Israel's guardian by stating that Israel's borders with a new Palestinian State would be the artificial and indefensible borders drawn by the UN in 1947 rather than the current ones in existence since Israel's defensive 1967 Six Day War;

from the end of Section 4 of the Communist Manifesto:
Finally, they labour everywhere for the union and agreement of the democratic parties of all countries. . . .

Note: President Obama deviates from the Communist Manifesto in one way. Karl Marx wrote near the end of Section 4 that "The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions." Obama's deviousness is explained by Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, copyrighted in 1971 by Saul D. Alinsky, a book Obama was photographed explaining on a black board in a classroom some years ago.

From the Holy Bible, King James Version, the 1st Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy, Chapter 2, Verses 1 & 2:
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."
So I earnestly pray that President Barack Obama fulfills the oath he took before entering on the Execution of his Office, that oath being from the Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, [8]:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Amen.
