Extremism rules the Democrat Party, will Socialism follow?

By Nancy Thorner and Jay Lehr – 

Travor Loudon, an author, filmmaker, and public speaker from New Zealand, has for more than 30 years researched radical left, Marxist, and terrorist movements and their covert influence on mainstream politics. He views Socialism as an euphemism for communism, because both lead to tyranny.

In his Beginner’s Guide to American Communist Parties just published in February, 2019, he speaks of the left’s willingness to work with and inside the Democratic Party to achieve their goals.

Loudon describes the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), founded in 1981, as being fully entrenched within the Democrat Party. The DSA helped establish the Congressional Progressive Caucus in 1991 with longtime ally Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and successfully elected hundreds of Democratic Party officials, local politicians, and several members of Congress.

Currently serving Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Danny Davis (D-Ill.), and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) have all been dues-paying DSA members. In the last election, the DSA assisted the election of, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). 

The DSA  has chapters in all 50 states, giving them the ability to penetrate the Democratic Party everywhere. It also has a religious group where pastors, church officials, theologians, and religious academics try to convince young minds that Christianity and socialism go hand-in-hand.

With Congress failing to fix our immigration rules, tens of thousands of illegal aliens cross the southwest border every week. In an interview with the Epoch Times on May 29, 2019, Loudon called the failure “an orchestrated, communist assault on America, to destroy America’s borders, to create confusion in America, to overwhelm the system politically.” Is that perhaps too strong? Probably not.

America remains socialism’s main enemy. If they can’t bring us down militarily, perhaps illegal immigration can do the trick. Millions of New Democratic voters  will mean that the southern states will never again vote conservatively and essentially one-party could rule America perpetually. That is clearly the plan of the liberals, the leftists and progressives. The latter should be called more correctly the Regressives as they desire to take us back to the 19th century.

Socialism already exists

Many Americans do not realize this nation already has a form of Socialism reflected in Social Security, Medicare and welfare. It was FDR who introduced Socialism in a big way. Obama tried to force even more of it on us with the Affordable Care Act. When considering what Socialism has done to Venezuela and Cuba, how is it that so many Americans are unable to grasp the fact that Socialism makes no sense. It is impossible for a government to provide free everything for everybody. Its sole source of money is the over-taxation of the productive for the sake of underachievers. In addition, it inevitably leads to the loss of liberty and to tyrants like Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Chavez and Maduro, assuming control of their lives. Ben Franklin said it best “those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.’

Socialism demands that human nature be turned on its head. Since the days of cavemen, humans have competed for the warmest caves, the tastiest parts of dinosaurs, the most attractive mates, the most money, the largest office, the greatest honors, the fastest cars and the biggest homes.

Socialism works only in the delusional heads of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

History tells us that with the exception of a few Nordic countries with a little socialism, it is bad for the people and the economics of nations. Yet  recent Harris and Gallup polls, released this year,  state that four in 10 Americans would prefer living in a socialist country rather than a capitalist one, despite nearly half understanding that it is a system dependent on dictatorship. Nearly a third of those polled favor government control over wealth distribution and total control of the economy.

The goal of Soviet Russia was to infiltrate American values with the destructive social goals of the Communist Manifesto. Former Soviet KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov, who defected from the Soviet Union in 1970, was interviewed in 1985 about Soviet infiltration methods. He said that by 1970 the Soviet Union already had infiltrated the US through brainwashing left-leaning people in the news media, entertainment, politics, business, education, and religion.

Robert Knight in his column of May 20, 2019, Rejecting the Marxist Version of the Constitution, presents the following insight into the Left’s Socialist agenda:

“When the workers of the world failed to unite and trigger economic upheaval in the 20th century, the left adopted a different strategy. Communist theorists Antonio Gramsci, Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfurt School saw that a cultural revolution, including educational indoctrination and media propaganda, could weaken society and lead to political revolution. That’s why the left embraces, abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage and now transgenderism. It all works against a family-based culture whose members are far less likely to fall for the left’s promises of “free stuff.”

Although Bernie Sanders was the only advocate of Socialism in the 2016 presidential race, in the 2020 presidential race several Democrat presidential candidates are openly pushing for Socialism through the promise of “free stuff” as their leading agendas. Sanders is promoting socialist policies like “Medicare for All,” the “Green New Deal,” free college tuition, and the $15 minimum wage, which are being endorsed by other Democrat candidates including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), without any thought that the consequence of Socialism is poverty and oppression. 

The Democrat Party is being hi-jacked by the Democrat Socialists of America. Although extremism has gone through a number of transformations over the past half century, today those most likely to label their political opponent extremists are Socialists.

Where the Left is heading

How often have you heard the following statements made?

If you believe that people who attempt to sneak across the border, putting their children or, more often, other people’s children at risk, are the bad guys and that those trying to protect our border are the good guys, you’re an extremist.

If you think it makes far more sense to be concerned about the votes being cast by non-citizens and by those refusing to use photo I.D.’s to identify themselves than to worry about Russia meddling in our elections, you’re an extremist.
If you think there is something screwy about our schools, which are otherwise religion-free zones, indoctrinating our young people with the madness of Islam, you’re an extremist.
If all you do is believe that Mother Nature, and not man, controls the weather, that’s more than enough to get you branded.

In an America that neither Barry Goldwater nor John F. Kennedy would recognize, Communism, not commonsense, currently is making headway in this nation. The future of this nation could very well hinge of the 2020 election.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…
