GOP Gasbag Bachus: 17 Socialist Senators! BS?


“Some of the men and women I work with in Congress are socialists.”

-Spencer Bachus, the top Republican on the Financial Services Committee, April 9, 2009

The terror… the HORROR…

The prospect of 17 closeted socialists–conspiring to subvert Congress, as described by Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL) in Trussville, Ala. on Apr. 9 –appears to be total fantasy.

Bachus made a big media splash with his inflammatory claim.  But since his allegation, he has named only  one, Bernie Sanders (I-VT), an Independent who openly claims to be a “Democratic Socialist”.

Sanders, along with reporters and lawmakers, have pressed Bachus to verify his claim by naming the other 16, to no avail.  “I think at the very least he has to tell people what his definition of socialism is,” said Sanders. “And I think he should tell us who he was referring to, who’s on the list.”

In a Joe McCarthy-like response, Bachus insists to guard his list as a secret.  Despite repeated requests, his office refuses to comment or respond in any way.

History repeating?

  1. Talk about clueless: If not for 96% of the uneducated welfare class voting for Obama, The Socialist Jackass Puppet of the Convicted felon, George Soros would not be in the white house imposing Marxist Socialist policies on America, violating his oath to uphold the constitution.

    Welcome, Fox Watcher/GOP Talking Point Repeater.

    As pointed out by Bill-o, George Soros indeed was convicted of inside training–IN FRANCE.,2933,270631,00.html

    Are you suggesting anything “French” is legitimate? If so, it runs contrary to every view expressed above.

    That aside, if you can substantiate JUST ONE of your baseless, vapid, inflammatory, bigoted, hateful claims I’ll send you a $10 Chipotle Gift Card.

    Thanks for visiting.

  3. Do some research as i have for over two years…my background,,,9 years U.S. Navy security Service, Cryptologist, interpretative…I know a Communist when i see one’s associations, and actions, and Obama is a communist.

  4. Towards a New Global Covenant

    Social democracy in a new era

    Thus, while the concepts and values of social democracy are of enduring significance, the key challenge today is to elaborate their meaning, and to re-examine the conditions of their entrenchment, against the background of the changing global constellation of politics and economics.

    In the current era, social democracy must be defended and elaborated not just at the level of the nation-state, but at regional and global levels as well. The provision of public goods can no longer be equated with state-provided goods alone. Diverse state and non-state actors shape and contribute to their provision – and they need to do so if some of the most profound challenges of globalism are to be met.

    Moreover, some core public goods have to be provided regionally and globally if they are to be provided at all. From the establishment of fairer trade rules and financial stability to the fight against hunger and environmental degradation, the emphasis needs to be on finding durable modes of international and transnational cooperation and collaboration.

    With this in mind, the project of social democracy has to be re conceived to include five essential goals:

    * the promotion of the rule of law at the international level
    * greater transparency, accountability and democracy in global governance
    * a deeper commitment to social justice in the pursuit of a more equitable distribution of life chances
    * the protection and reinvention of community at diverse levels
    * the regulation of the global economy – through public management of global trade and financial flows and engagement of leading stakeholders in corporate governance.

    Towards a New Global Covenant

    At the centre of the global argument and proposals is the need to connect the security and human rights agendas and to bring them together into a coherent international framework. To achieve this a global convention is needed to draw up a new covenant for the world. Rather than set out a blueprint of what the results of such a convention should be, it is important to stress the significance of a legitimate process that both reviews the security and human rights sides of international law and also seeks to reconnect them in a global legal framework. This must, in addition, be linked to a larger social and economic framework of global governance, setting fundamental standards for all human life.

    One demonstrable result of such an initiative could be new procedures at the UN to specify the set of conditions which would constitute a threat to the peace and the well-being of humankind sufficient to justify the use of force. The question is often put in the form: do we need to amend the UN Charter to create new triggers for war or armed intervention in the affairs of a country because of its internal policies?

    But there is a much greater question which any such convention needs to address. Across the developing or majority world, issues of global justice with respect to government and legal human rights are not regarded as a priority on their own, and are unlikely to be perceived as legitimate concerns, unless they are connected with fundamental humanitarian issues rooted in social and economic well-being, such as basic education, clean water and public hygiene. Mary Robinson has made the case eloquently and shows how the application of existing international protocols would greatly advance the entire human rights agenda.
    Mary Robinson, founder of the Ethical Globalisation Initiative, talks to open democracy about deepening the world’s understanding of what human rights truly mean: see “Making ‘global’ and ‘ethical’ rhyme” (December 2003)
    In other words, we need to replace the narrow scope and vision of the Washington consensus with a free and fair global economy which also supports a human security agenda. If globalisms is to be steered for the benefit of all, the best way to achieve this is by globalist social democratic concepts and values:

    Mass organizations

    As the membership of a communist party was to be limited to active cadres, there was a need for networks of separate organizations to mobilize mass support for the party. Typically communist parties have built up various front organizations, whose membership is often open to non-communists. In many countries the single most important front organization of the communist parties has been its youth wing. During the time of the Communist International the youth leagues were explicit communist organizations, using the name ‘Young Communist League’. Later the youth league concept was broadened in many countries, and names like ‘Democratic Youth League’ were adopted.

    Other organizations often connected to communist parties includes trade unions, student, women’s, peasant’s and cultural organizations. Traditionally these mass organizations were politically subordinated to the political leadership of the party. However, in many contemporary cases mass organizations founded by communists have acquired a certain degree of independence. In some cases mass organizations have outlived the communist parties in question.

    At the international level, the Communist International organized various international front organizations (linking national mass organizations with each other), such as the Young Communist International, Profintern, Krestintern, International Red Aid, Sportintern, etc.. These organizations were dissolved in the process of deconstruction of the Communist International. After the Second World War new international coordination bodies were created, such as the World Federation of Democratic Youth, International Union of Students, World Federation of Trade Unions, Womens International Democratic Federation and World Peace Council.

    Renaming Communist Parties

    A uniform naming scheme for communist parties was adopted by the Communist International. All parties were required to use the name ‘Communist Party of (name of country)’. Today, there are plenty of cases where the old sections of the Communist International have retained those names. In other cases names have been changed. Common causes for the shift in naming were either moves to avoid state repression[2] or as measures to indicate a broader political acceptance. A typical example of the latter was the renamings of various East European communist parties after the Second World War, as staged ‘mergers’ of the local Social Democratic parties occurred.

    * United States – Communist Party USA, Progressive Labor Party, Revolutionary Communist Party, Socialist Workers Party, Workers World Party, Workers Party, USA

  5. Paul Sonderman says:

    Am I supposed to be impresed? My offer still stands,


    Have you seen this? It is the fascist blueprint to create a police state and legalize gulags. This is not a spoof. This is Obama’s “civilian army’s” MOB. (hat tip the Rockman)


    (U) Key Findings (U//LES) The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.

    Translation: There is no threat. Give us time, we’ll create one.

    — (U//LES) Threats from white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts. Nevertheless, the consequences of a prolonged economic downturn—including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability to obtain credit—could create a fertile recruiting environment for rightwing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past.

    Translation: There is no threat. Give us time, we’ll create one.

    (U//FOUO) The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the 1990s when rightwing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs, and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.

    American sovereignty is a radical position now?

    — (U//FOUO) During the 1990s, these issues contributed to the growth in the number of domestic rightwing terrorist and extremist groups and an increase in violent acts targeting government facilities, law enforcement officers, banks, and infrastructure sectors.

    Sounds like they are describing Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Obama’s great friends and terrorist patriots!~

    — (U//FOUO) Growth of these groups subsided in reaction to increased government scrutiny as a result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and disrupted plots, improvements in the economy, and the continued U.S. standing as the preeminent world power.

    Here they go again, pulling that 15 year old canard out of their ass (while neglecting to point out McVeigh’s Middle Eastern connections. [Tom has more on the al qaeda connection too]. Their evidence is one terror attack 15 years ago — but fail to mention the 13,000 Islamic attacks since 9/11. Got that?

    (U//FOUO) The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.

    Ah, there it is. take their guns away. Jail’em if they disagree.

    — (U//FOUO) Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups, as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government. The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement. —

    Ban? What ban? This is a staging. Fake staging to seize weapons.

    (U//FOUO) Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.

    Radicalize the nation’s greatest patriots. Are you seeing this? The only radicalization happening on a national/global scale is Islamic jihad. Our vets????

    (U) Current Economic and Political Climate

    (U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that a number of economic and political factors are driving a resurgence in rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalization activity. Despite similarities to the climate of the 1990s, the threat posed by lone wolves and small terrorist cells is more pronounced than in past years. In addition, the historical election of an African American president and the prospect of policy changes are proving to be a driving force for rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalization. —

    There he goes again. Playing the race card again. Racism was dead in this country. It is Obama’s objective to create a divisive schism in this country. The country ain’t buying it. We, as a nation, elected him. Racism charge dead.

    (U) A recent example of the potential violence associated with a rise in rightwing extremism may be found in the shooting deaths of three police officers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 4 April 2009. The alleged gunman’s reaction reportedly was influenced by his racist ideology and belief in antigovernment conspiracy theories related to gun confiscations, citizen detention camps, and a Jewish-controlled “one world government.”

    One friggin nut and they will try to change the constitution. Thousands of Islamic attacks, honor killings, clitorectomies, shariah law, child marriage, child slavery, human slavery, lashings — deduce nothing! And should you mention any of these things — you are a racist and Islamophobe.

    As a Jew, this nut does not worry me. There will always be nuts – exceptions make bad law.

    Where does this report address the thousands of acts of lone jihad syndrome, here and abroad? Suicide or otherwise?

    (U) Exploiting Economic Downturn

    (U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.” These “accusatory” tactics are employed to draw new recruits into rightwing extremist groups and further radicalize those already subscribing to extremist beliefs. DHS/I&A assesses this trend is likely to accelerate if the economy is perceived to worsen.

    They are using the Jews. Most if not all of the recent spate of anti-semitic attacks here and abroad were committed by Muslims. FACT.

    (U//FOUO) Perceptions on Poverty and Radicalization

    (U//FOUO) Scholars and experts disagree over poverty’s role in motivating violent radicalization or terrorist activity. High unemployment, however, has the potential to lead to alienation, thus increasing an individual’s susceptibility to extremist ideas. According to a 2007 study from the German Institute for Economic Research, there appears to be a strong association between a parent’s unemployment status and the formation of rightwing extremist beliefs in their children—specifically xenophobia and antidemocratic ideals. ownership and use. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers. —

    Translation: Anyone who believes in immigration control and reform is an extremist. This is the club to the head of any resistance to shamnesty.

    The German Institute? WTF? Who the hell are they and why should we care?

    (U//LES) Most statements by rightwing extremists have been rhetorical, expressing concerns about the election of the first African American president, but stopping short of calls for violent action. In two instances in the run-up to the election, extremists appeared to be in the early planning stages of some threatening activity targeting the Democratic nominee, but law enforcement interceded.

    Never happened. Look at history. Recent assassination attempts have been by leftopaths (Squeaky), commies (Oswald) and nuts (Hinckley).

    (U) Revisiting the 1990s

    (U//FOUO) Paralleling the current national climate, rightwing extremists during the 1990s exploited a variety of social issues and political themes to increase group visibility and recruit new members. Prominent among these themes were the militia movement’s opposition to gun control efforts, criticism of free trade agreements (particularly those with Mexico), and highlighting perceived government infringement on civil liberties as well as white supremacists’ longstanding exploitation of social issues such as abortion, inter-racial crimes, and same-sex marriage.

    Abortion, gay marriage and racism — the inane drone of the left. I have been to these rallies and let me tell you – the proponents of gay marriage, abortion and “racism canards” are the violent ones. Every time.

    (U) Economic Hardship and Extremism

    (U//FOUO) Historically, domestic rightwing extremists have feared, predicted, and anticipated a cataclysmic economic collapse in the United States. Prominent antigovernment conspiracy theorists have incorporated aspects of an impending economic collapse to intensify fear and paranoia among like-minded individuals and to attract recruits during times of economic uncertainty. Conspiracy theories involving declarations of martial law, impending civil strife or racial conflict, suspension of the U.S. Constitution, and the creation of citizen detention camps often incorporate aspects of a failed economy. Antigovernment conspiracy theories and “end times” prophecies could motivate extremist individuals and groups to stockpile food, ammunition, and weapons. These teachings also have been linked with the radicalization of domestic extremist individuals and groups in the past, such as violent Christian Identity organizations and extremist members of the militia movement

    Obama has set about to bankrupt this nation with a nine trillion rip off of the national treasury. The bankrupting of the hardworking to pay off his thug political machine and his thug army. Any great American (think tea parties) who dissents will be targeted.

    Page 5 of 9 (U) Illegal Immigration

    (U//FOUO) Rightwing extremists were concerned during the 1990s with the perception that illegal immigrants were taking away American jobs through their willingness to work at significantly lower wages. They also opposed free trade agreements, arguing that these arrangements resulted in Americans losing jobs to countries such as Mexico.

    (U//FOUO) Over the past five years, various rightwing extremists, including militias and white supremacists, have adopted the immigration issue as a call to action, rallying point, and recruiting tool. Debates over appropriate immigration levels and enforcement policy generally fall within the realm of protected political speech under the First Amendment, but in some cases, anti-immigration or strident pro-enforcement fervor has been directed against specific groups and has the potential to turn violent.

    Obama wants shamnesty. Obama wants to open up the flood gates, have ACORN register them to vote – overwhelm the electorate with entitlement voters. The end the will of the American people – the end of fair elections.

    (U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremist groups’ frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration has the potential to incite individuals or small groups toward violence. If such violence were to occur, it likely would be isolated, small-scale, and directed at specific immigration-related targets. —

    Check out the word “perceived” – the fact that the government is doing nothing is beside the point, right? The reference “directed at specific immigration-related targets” refers to Binghamton — and my sources tell me, Binghamton was not a lone gunman — was not a guy who was pissed because he lost his job. My sources tell me there were supposed to me more. It was retaliation in that Muslim enclave.

    Page 6 of 9 — (U//FOUO) On the current front, legislation has been proposed this year requiring mandatory registration of all firearms in the United States. Similar legislation was introduced in 2008 in several states proposing mandatory tagging and registration of ammunition. It is unclear if either bill will be passed into law; nonetheless, a correlation may exist between the potential passage of gun control legislation and increased hoarding of ammunition, weapons stockpiling, and paramilitary training activities among rightwing extremists.

    Gun control. Period.

    (U) Perceived Threat from Rise of Other Countries

    (U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist paranoia of foreign regimes could escalate or be magnified in the event of an economic crisis or military confrontation, harkening back to the “New World Order” conspiracy theories of the 1990s. The dissolution of Communist countries in Eastern Europe and the end of the Soviet Union in the 1990s led some rightwing extremists to believe that a “New World Order” would bring about a world government that would usurp the sovereignty of the United States and its Constitution, thus infringing upon their liberty. The dynamics in 2009 are somewhat similar, as other countries, including China, India, and Russia, as well as some smaller, oil-producing states, are experiencing a rise in economic power and influence. —

    Soros got his …………

    (U//FOUO) Lone Wolves and Small Terrorist Cells

    (U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that lone wolves and small terrorist cells embracing violent rightwing extremist ideology are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States. Information from law enforcement and nongovernmental organizations indicates lone wolves and small terrorist cells have shown intent—and, in some cases, the capability—to commit violent acts. —

    “Lone wolves and “terror cells” embracing rightwing ideology are the most “dangerous domestic terrorism threat to the United States”?

    This document poses the most dangerous threat to these great United States.

    (U//LES) DHS/I&A has concluded that white supremacist lone wolves pose the most significant domestic terrorist threat because of their low profile and autonomy—separate from any formalized group—which hampers warning efforts. —

    (U//FOUO) Similarly, recent state and municipal law enforcement reporting has warned of the dangers of rightwing extremists embracing the tactics of “leaderless resistance” and of lone wolves carrying out acts of violence. —

    (U//FOUO) Arrests in the past several years of radical militia members in Alabama, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania on firearms, explosives, and other related violations indicates the emergence of small, well-armed extremist groups in some rural areas. ordnance that they planned to use in attacks on nearby military and federal facilities and infrastructure targets. —

    (U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist views bemoan the decline of U.S. stature and have recently focused on themes such as the loss of U.S. manufacturing capability to China and India, Russia’s control of energy resources and use of these to pressure other countries, and China’s investment in U.S. real estate and corporations as a part of subversion strategy.

    Rightwing extremist views bemoan the decline of U.S. stature? LIE. Obama fallaciously preaches about the decline of US stature us right wing Patriots know better.

    Obama and his minions cannot demoralize Americans who love this country. Not possible. His Alinsky rules for radicals will not work on thinking, rational men and women.

    (U) Disgruntled Military Veterans

    The only disgruntled military are the ones that were forced to applaud the traitor in the White House.

    (U) After Operation Desert Shield/Storm in 1990-1991, some returning military veterans—including Timothy McVeigh—joined or associated with rightwing extremist groups. —

    He hates the military.


    (U//FOUO) Unlike the earlier period, the advent of the Internet and other informationage technologies since the 1990s has given domestic extremists greater access to information related to bomb-making, weapons training, and tactics, as well as targeting of individuals, organizations, and facilities, potentially making extremist individuals and groups more dangerous and the consequences of their violence more severe. New technologies also permit domestic extremists to send and receive encrypted communications and to network with other extremists throughout the country and abroad, making it much more difficult for law enforcement to deter, prevent, or preempt a violent extremist attack.

    (U//FOUO) A number of law enforcement actions and external factors were effective in limiting the militia movement during the 1990s and could be utilized in today’s climate. —

    (U//FOUO) Following the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, the militia movement declined in total membership and in the number of organized groups because many members distanced themselves from the movement as a result of the intense scrutiny militias received after the bombing. —

    They have one bombing — one (with Middle Eastern connections that were suppressed) – and this is the basis of their takeover and coup on the Constitution.

    Free men are under siege. Read this document – Department of [undermining] Homeland Security.

    (U//FOUO) Militia membership continued to decline after the turn of the millennium as a result of law enforcement disruptions of multiple terrorist plots linked to violent rightwing extremists, new legislation banning paramilitary training, and militia frustration that the “revolution” never materialized. —

    (U//FOUO) Although the U.S. economy experienced a significant recovery and many perceived a concomitant rise in U.S. standing in the world, white supremacist groups continued to experience slight growth.

    (U//FOUO) DHS/I&A will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months to ascertain with greater regional specificity the rise in rightwing extremist activity in the United States, with a particular emphasis on the political, economic, and social factors that drive rightwing extremist radicalization.

  7. Paul Sonderman says:

    This is a cardinal waste of time. I prefer to debate someone who knows commands other than “copy and paste.” If this is all you’ve got, don’t bother. Seek professional help.

  8. We at least have one thing in common, You think I am ignorant and uninformed, I know your are.
    Check Out the New Party of Chicago,,(Socialist Party).. defunct in 1980, but reorganized as the Workers Party in New York. Obama was a member of the New Party (have documentation to prove this, Including Copywrighted Press release from the New Party which names Obama as a member) which helped launch and finance his Political Career,
    Obama’s Mentor Frank Marshall Davis a known Communist who fled to Hawaii in 1948(Hawaii was not a state in 1948) to escape FBI investigation became Obamas Mentor when Obama was 10 yrs old. Davis helped to organize and was active in the Communist Party of Hawaii)
    Obama admitted to seeking out radical Marxist/Socialists while in college. Lot’s of talk going around that Obama is a Muslem, in my research, I have found no evidence to support this, and so stated in my article “America In Peril”
    The current policies of Obama, and the Homeland Security report, are duplicating the actions of Hugo Chavez, and In my article back last Oct. “Can Obama Pull Off A Hugo Chavez, You can bet your assetts, with Congressional records and Executive Orders already in place i showed how easy it would be(copies of records and numbers and descriptions of Executive Orders included in the article)

    I gathered and interpretated intelligence for the U.S, Navy for 9 years…and one of the first things we were taught was to try to prove everything that we had gathered wrong.

    The Homeland Security Report re-enforces my conclusions that total control, and in the Marxist/Socialist tradition, intimidate or eliminate opposition.

    From 1958-1967, i worked in countries to try to help prevent their take over by Marxist/Socialist, Peurto Rico was one.

  9. Paul Sonderman says:

    You have NO IDEA what I think, beyond what I write here, so I’ll tell you.

    I think that you appear to be more than slightly paranoid, and are pretty darned impressed with yourself. You come across as vindictive, judgmental and stubborn. You seem to confuse thoughts and opinions with facts. You make claims, insult and attack COMPLETE STRANGERS without the slightest provocation or shred of documentation for your claims. When called on it, you take an offensive position: you change the subject, barrage with more unsubstantiated BS and burden with tedium. All to deflect attention from the fact that you can’t answer a simple question. Of course, since we’re total strangers, I admit these are merely opinions, based solely on your conduct in this exchange.

    I didn’t insult you. I merely asked you to back up your claims, which despite two ensuing cacophonous diatribes, you still failed to do. To demonstrate my sporting spirit, I even offered you a little reward.

    It’s a challenge that I (now for the 3rd and final time) I repeat:

    (The reference to the irrelevant French Insider Trading conviction of Soros aside), if you can substantiate JUST ONE of your baseless, vapid, inflammatory, bigoted, hateful claims, I’ll send you a $10 Chipotle Gift Card.

    To refresh your memory, that post read: “If not for 96% of the uneducated welfare class voting for Obama, The Socialist Jackass Puppet of the Convicted felon, George Soros would not be in the white house imposing Marxist Socialist policies on America, violating his oath to uphold the constitution.”

    I don’t care who you are or what you’ve spent your life doing…it doesn’t mitigate the burden of proof required to justify such claims and scurrilous ad hominem attacks.

    Put up or shut up.

  10. I submitted proof that Obama is A socialist…what more do you want……
    google the New Party of Chicago…do you want a copy of the Press release…or i can give you the date and you can look it up yourself….Obama was a member of the new party before he joined the Democrat Party….but the New party encouraged their party members to register as menbers of other parties to run in different races

  11. New Party Icon October 1996 Update :
    Running to Win : The Key Races
    New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races:

    Arkansas: The Little Rock New Party has a full slate of candidates up for election in November. LRNP steering committee member Michael Booker is running unopposed for re-election to the Arkansas State House. Two NP members – Paul Kelly and Genevieve Stewart – are running for at-large (city-wide) city council positions. And in a head-to-head battle between the New Party and the conservative right, NP member Jayne Cia faces the Arkansas state chair of Empower America (Jack Kemp and Bill Bennett’s organization) for a Justice of the Peace (county board) position.

    Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).

    Maryland: Two New Party members are up for school board seats this fall: Doyle Niemann in Prince George’s County and Dan Parr in Montgomery County.

    Minnesota: Despite the successful effort by conservative Democratic Party forces to deny Progressive Minnesota the opportunity to use fusion this fall, the state legislative candidates that sought our nomination still see themselves as Progressive Minnesota candidates, and we’re still backing them in the general election. PM/NP endorsed candidates include Ellen Anderson, Karen Clark, Andy Dawkins, Linda Higgins, and Sandy Pappas. Progressive Minnesota has also endorsed Green Party State Assembly candidate Cam Gordon.

    New York: The New Party of Long Island is backing three candidates for office this Fall: State Assembly candidate Tom DiNapoli and Congressional candidates Carolyn McCarthy and Nora Bredes. NP members collected the necessary signatures to nominate progressive Democratic Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli on the New Party line, making this the first Democratic Party/New Party fusion effort. The chapter is supporting a major voter registration drive in African-American and Hispanic communities in McCarthy’s district.

    Washington, DC: DC New Democracy/NP is backing ten candidates for Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (Almedith Bass-Williams, John Jordan, Laine McRaney, Henry Fernandez, Todd Mosley, Daniel Rosenberg, Gerry Lorentz, Will Hill, Dennis Dolinger, Violet Hewlett), neighborhood-based councils that represent community concerns to the mayor and city council. In addition, DCND is recruiting candidates to run write-in campaigns in some of the 80-odd ANC races with no candidate.

    Wisconsin: In addition to the four Progressive Milwaukee-backed candidates running for state office (Spencer Coggs, Dale Dulberger, Gwendolynne Moore, Johnnie Morris-Tatum, see Sept Update), two New Party members in Fox Valley are running for the state assembly. Progressive Fox Valley founder and chair Tony Palmeri is in a surprisingly close race against an four-term incumbent conservative Republican in Oshkosh. New Party and AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees) member Corky Van Handel is also running for the state assembly in a nearby district. Both are running as Democrats.
    Membership Growth
    September was the New Party’s all-time high month for membership recruitment – more than 1000 new members joined! Welcome aboard.

    As always, onward and upward…

    I did, Mr. Copy and Paste. He was one of 4 candidates endorsed by them in 1996. This should surprise no one. “”Leftist” groups tend to be pro-labor.

    According to a New Party Update dated July-August 1996, noting its total of 440 members at the time,, “the NP’s fiscal balance is $7,000 and receives an average of $450/month is sustainer donations.” Now that’s SOME party.

    I found no evidence he was a member. All I can find are unsubstantiated claims (some much more believable than yours

    You have it, produce it. And it had better be from someone other than a right-wing blog.

    And it’s the DEMOCRATIC Party, not the DEMOCRAT Party.

  13. From the above press release:

    Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).

    It specifically says Three NP members

    I also had other articles, from another source…tried to post them here but the wouldnt print…

    go to my site and look and look for article dated March 7th or 8th titled Obama file 41
    there is tons of proof.

  14. Paul Sonderman says:

    What you have sir, are blurry scans from an unauthenticated news letter circa the mid`90s that fall WELL SHORT of satisfying any burden of proof THEN, let alone, NOW.

    I repeat, you use present tense. “I submitted proof that Obama is A socialist” (sic), you say yet fail MISERABLY to substantiate this, via your provided “tons of proof” (sic). Hear this. There is NO PROOF on your blog regarding this. If you feel there is, you suffer delusions.

    You are a purveyor of lies, half truths, slander and vomitous rhetoric ill befitting a man of your alleged pedigree but perfectly at home in the GOP. Nice to have a home, isn’t it?

  15. Catherine says:

    Marion is a waste of your time Paul. Poor thing is a victim of “Obama Derangement Syndrome.” Displays each and every symptom.

    These “patriots” that Marion is defending are domestic terrorists and thugs with paranoid delusions about Obama, his birth certificate and the alleged latest ism into which he will be bringing us into a new world order. Give me a break.

  16. Paul Sonderman says:

    I couldn’t agree more. Thanks, Catherine.

  17. Yuri Bezmenov, A KGB agent who defected in 1970 and recorded an interview in1984. (the video can be found on my site imbedded in the article “America In Peril”
    Yuri explains below at 10:50 into the interview why I could bring a train load of documents and you would still not believe. The brainwashing and demoralization has been going on for over 30 years, and although it is documented, and part of Congressional records, and Public records…You will not believe.

    A closed mind is like a locked door, unless the right key is found, nothing enters. Unfortunately for many the key will be hind sight.
    The original video was removed from YouTube on more than one occasion. We have found a different source for the video and we present it here, with a partial transcript of what we believe to be the telling points that Yuri Bezmenov covers.

    Yuri Bezmenov, was an expert on Soviet propaganda and disinformation, escaped to the United States in 1970.

    This entire sixteen minute interview, recorded twenty-four years ago, is an alarming prophesy of the Communist infiltration rapidly taking root even during the Reagan years.

    For those of you with Attention Deficit Disorder, fast forward to (10:50) for a chilling account of the Four Stages of Ideological Subversion.

    The following is a partial transcript of the interview highlights:


    Ideological Subversion, or Active Measures, or Psychological Warfare: To change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.

    It’s a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first one being demoralization, it takes from fifteen to twenty years to demoralize a nation.

    Why that many years? Because this the minimum number of years which requires to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy.

    In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism.


    The Four Stages of Ideological Subversion

    Stage 1 — Demoralization

    The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already, for the last twenty-five years, actually it’s over-fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where previously not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such a tremendous success, most of it is done by Americans to Americans, thanks to lack of moral standards.

    ******** As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralized is unable to access true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I showered him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures — even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him a concentration camp — he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military boot crashes his butt, then he will understand, but not before that. That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.

    Stage 2 — Destabilization

    The next stage is destabilization. This time the subverter does not care about your ideas and the patterns of your consumption, whether you eat junk food and get fat and flabby doesn’t matter anymore. This time — and it takes only from two to five years to destabilize a nation — what matters is essentials. Economy, foreign relations, defense systems. And you can see quite clearly that in some areas, in such sensitive areas as defense and economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never believe it fourteen years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process would go that fast.

    Stage 3 — Crisis

    The next stage of course is crisis, it may take only up to six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis, you can see it in Central America now. And after crisis, with a violent change of power, structure, and economy, you have a so-called period of normalization. It may last indefinitely.

    Stage 4 — Normalization

    Normalization is a cynical expression, borrowed from Soviet propaganda, when the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, Comrade Brezhnev said, “Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized.”

    This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all the schmucks to bring the country to crisis. To promise people all kinds of goodies and a paradise on Earth. To destabilize your economy. To eliminate the principle of free market competition and to put a Big Brother government in Washington DC with benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise lots of things, never mind whether the promises are fulfilled or not. He will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of a new generation of Soviet assassins, never mind, he will create false illusions that the situation is under control. The situation is not under control. The situation is disgustingly out of control.

    Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system, trains another generation of people who think they are living at the peace time. False. The United States is in a state of war. Undeclared total war against the basic principles and the foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course, it’s the system — however ridiculous it may sound — the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not I don’t give a hoot. If you are not scared by now, nothing can scare you.

    But you don’t have to be paranoid about it. What actually happens now, that unlike myself, you have literally several years to limp on unless the United States wakes up. The time bomb is ticking, with every second the disaster is coming closer and closer, unlike myself you will have no where to defect to. Unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is it, this is the last country of freedom and possibility.

  18. Excerpts from my article “America In Peril” Which is mostly copies of public records.

    “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”

    — Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev, 1959
    For all of you who believe the aims of Communism died with the end of the Cold war, let’s connect the dots.

    First, Google the FBI file on Frank Marshall Davis (it’s too long to include here) then look at the Goals of the United States Communist Party as entered in the Congressional record.
    Thursday, January 10, 1963
    I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,”… an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:


    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    …11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces
    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    …15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”
    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders…
    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.


    You know the saying, “Those who don’t know history are apt to repeat it”…

  19. Paul Sonderman says:


    What’s amazing, sir, is that despite your deluge of paranoid, copy/paste “communists at the gate” rants, you STILL FAIL to substantiate your initial claims.

    I’ve been more than patient. I have to go put in my teeth. Get off my lawn!
