This is a history of Russian Politburo formation. Compare this to WHAT is happening today under Obama.
The Politburo, or Political Bureau, was the most important decision-making and leadership organ in the Communist Party, and has commonly been seen as equivalent to the cabinet in Western political systems. For most of the life of the Soviet system, the Politburo (called the Presidium between 1952 and 1966) was the major focus of elite political life and the arena within which all important issues of policy were decided. It was the heart of the political system.
The Politburo was formally established at the Eighth Congress of the Party in March 1919 and held its first session on April 16. Formed by the Central Committee (CC), the Politburo was to make decisions that could not await the next meeting of the CC, but over time its smaller size and more frequent meeting schedule meant that effective power drained into it and away from the CC. There had been smaller groupings of leaders before, but these had never become formalized nor had they taken an institutional form. The establishment of the Politburo was part of the regularization of the leading levels of the Party that saw the simultaneous creation of the Orgburo and Secretariat, with these latter two bodies meant to ensure the implementation of the decisions of leading Party organs, in practice mostly the Politburo.
***Note injected here: The CPUSA, Communist Party of the USA was begun in 1919.*** There currently is a plan for the CPUSA Convention in New York this year to celebrate 90 years.
Also a May Day demonstration planned:
From its formation until late 1930, the Politburo was one arena within which the conflict between Josef Stalin and his supporters on the one side and successive groups of oppositionists among the Party leadership was fought out, but with the removal of Mikhail Tomsky in 1930, the last open oppositionist disappeared from the Politburo. Henceforth the body remained largely controlled by Stalin. Its lack of institutional integrity and power is illustrated by the fact that various of its members were arrested and executed during the terror of the mid-to late 1930s. After World War II, the Politburo ceased even to meet regularly, being effectively replaced by groupings of leaders that Stalin mobilized on particular issues and when it suited him.
While the frequency of Politburo meetings is somewhat uncertain for much of its life, it seems to have met on average about once per week in the Brezhnev period and after, with provision for a further meeting if required. Meetings were attended by all members plus a range of other people who might be called in to address specific items on the agenda. In addition, some issues were handled by circulation among the members, thereby not requiring explicit discussion at a meeting. No public differences of opinion between Politburo members were aired before the breakdown of many of the rules of Party life under Gorbachev, and public unanimity prevailed. It is not clear that votes were actually taken; issues seem to have been resolved through discussion and consensus. Whatever the process, the Politburo was the central leadership site of the Party and the Soviet system as a whole.

Obama has appointed nearly 44 Czars. Many of which do not come under scrutiny of our own Senate for confimation.
Van Jones: Green jobs Czar. An avowed Communist Maoist that resigned when his connections were exposed. Now works at the Center for American Progress a leftist think tank headed by John Podesta.
Carol Browner: Environmental Czar: Belongs to the Socialists International and the World Sustainability panel. All connections were “scrubbed” from the internet when her connections were revealed.
Cass Sunstein: Married to Socialist Samantha Power (friends with Mary Robinson, the founder of the Durban I Conference). Sunstein is the author of “Nudge”. If Americans cannot be nudged to follow Socialism; PUSH them.
Ezekiel Emanuel: Rahm Emanuel’s brother. Author of the “Human Lives” curve. Human “worth” only good between 25 and 45 years old. Now a consultant for the Healthcare bill.
Ron Bloom: Manufacturing Czar. Anti-Capitalist and Mao lover. Do any of you find it disturbing that an Anti-Capitalist is in charge of the Manufacturing Sector?
To view Obama’s Communist and Socialist connections go to:
Yes, past presidents have had them in “advisory” positions, BUT Obama is utilizing them to set policies. If Obama is using them to set policies, WHY hasn’t our own Congress jumped up and down and screamed about them? Doesn’t our own Congress realize that the “plan” of our own government, via the White House is to create a layer of government around the White House in Cosa Nostra (mafia) fashion; as in a Politburo?
After all Obama is from Chicago.
Our own government has taken over a percentage of banks, insurance companies, now the auto industry, what is to STOP them from taking over our own CONGRESS? In communist subversion, once complete; what has happened to the “legislative” and “judicial” branches? They become obsolete and the members disappear. Does our Congress; Republican, Democrat and Independent even think about this? Are they just happy to receive the lobbyist money, the “fake power” only to find themselves painted in a corner with no exit strategy?
If Congress denies passage of what Obama wants; he circumvents Congress with Executive Orders:
Does any of this sound/look familiar America?
Will history repeat itself in the fashion of the American Revolutionary War?
Is Obama already planning on containing the uprising that is possible?
Obama’s “Consequence Management Response Force”
The brigade will not change its name, but the force will be known for the next year as a CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force, or CCMRF (pronounced “sea-smurf”).
 There is a suspicious correction at the end of this article: A non-lethal crowd control package fielded to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, described in the original version of this story, is intended for use on deployments to the war zone, not in the U.S., as previously stated.
“…this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded…because of this mission we’re undertaking we were the first to get it.”
And, why didn’t the BCT learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package” during their 35 months in a war zone? Why now? The answer is, the Army needs lethal in a war zone. It needs non-lethal at home.
Read what the colonel said:
The colonel’s “mission” is in the United States — does Obama now consider the homeland a “war zone?”
Playing the “Devil’s Advocate HERE”:
What IF Obama activates this force at his whim of what HE considers a “National Emergency”?
The National Guard has already been deployed to places…… even the Kentucky Derby.
WHO were they supposed to be protecting? The Horses?
Or is this a test of America’s acceptance of the National Guard or National Security Forces being visual among the populace?
What ARE Obama’s plans for America?
