Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is coming for your children.

Not content with taking over school boards and sending comrades into the teaching profession, the United States’ largest Marxist group is also writing the textbooks your children study.

California DSA member Duane Campbell helped write the new History-Social Science Framework for the state, which was adopted in 2017. Sacramento-based Campbell, a DSA comrade since at least 1983, is an emeritus professor of bilingual/multicultural education at California State University–Sacramento and former chair of the Sacramento DSA. He is also the author of “Choosing Democracy: A Practical Guide to Multicultural Education.”

According to Campbell, “Because of California’s large size and market, what goes into California textbooks frequently also gets written into textbooks around the nation.”

CBP Long Beach Chinese Weapons Seizure

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Three separate shipments full of parts were intercepted in recent weeks, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the matter, and were packed in their own cargo containers on three separate ships that were also carrying household items, apparel, toys, industrial machinery, and other imports.

With a Domestic Value of over $378,000 the seized items were found in violation of the Chinese Arms Embargo

LOS ANGELES — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport in coordination with the Machinery Center of Excellence and Expertise (CEE), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), intercepted and seized 52,601 firearms parts in violation of the Chinese Arms Embargo. The seized items described as sights, stocks, muzzles, brakes, buffer kits, and grips which arrived in three shipments from China, had a combined domestic value of $378,225.00.

CBP officers referred the items to ATF investigators, who confirmed that the firearm parts were in violation of the Arms Export Control Act and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), 27 CFR 447.52.

“This seizure is an exceptional example of CBP officers and import specialists vigilance, commitment and keen focus in enforcing complex arms embargo regulations,” said Carlos C. Martel, CBP Director of Field Operations in Los Angeles. “The Chinese Arms Embargo is just one of the hundreds of regulations CBP enforces, ensuring the safety and security of our country.”

Federal regulations impose importation restrictions to certain countries to which the United States maintains an arms embargo, and one of such countries is China.

“We work closely with our strategic partners to ensure import compliance while maintaining the highest standards of security at our nation’s largest seaport,” remarked LaFonda Sutton-Burke, CBP Port Director of the LA/Long Beach Seaport. “This interception underscores the successful collaboration between CBP officers, import specialists, and ATF investigators.” In fiscal year (FY) 2018, Office of Field Operations (OFO) seized 266,279 firearms, firearm parts, ammunition, fireworks and explosives at 328 ports of entry throughout the United States. These interceptions represent an increase of 18.4 percent from the previous year.

About Those North Korean Miniature Warheads

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: North Korea could now have as many as 60 nuclear warheads in its inventory. The new number is more than double the maximum estimate of 20 to 25 weapons by Siegfried Hecker, former director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and now a professor at Stanford University. Hecker was the last American scientist to visit North Korea’s nuclear weapons complex, in late 2010. Most estimates of the size of the North’s inventory have been far more conservative, generally in the range of 12 to 15 to 20.

Japan defense white paper to concede North Korea has miniaturized nuclear warheads, report says

Reuters, Kyodo

TOKYO/BEIJING – Japan has upgraded its estimate of North Korea’s nuclear weapons capability in an upcoming annual defense white paper, saying it seems Pyongyang has already achieved the miniaturization of warheads, the Yomiuri newspaper said in an unsourced report Wednesday.

That compares with the assessment in last year’s report in which the government said it was possible North Korea had achieved miniaturization, the daily said without citing sources.

President Trump, As Long as You are Declassifying…

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Providing declassification authority to AG William Barr on all things concerning the Russia investigation is a great thing. Patriotic Americans need to understand all the abuses of power that were applied by Democrat operatives since your nomination.

Then as long as there is the matter of Israel and Iran that continues to fester and maintain a political as well as militant component, there are at least two suggestions noted below that will for sure be favorable to your foreign policy and will likely have some positive outcomes for domestic policy.

Let’s go back to 2016 and 2017, shall we? Congressman Louis Gohmert of Texas was part of a hearing where then Eric Holder was the witness. At one point, Gohmert demanded that Holder declassify and release the Holyland Foundation trial documents. ALL OF THEM. Tick tock…

Since then, Gohmert is still ringing the bell. He continues to plead for more attention to the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR so that a legitimate status can be attached to blacklist those organizations.

DSA Channels Stalin, Pulls Off Crafty Move With Exclusive Sanders Endorsement

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) pulled off a deft move at its biennial National Convention in Atlanta in early August.

The United States’ largest Marxist organization passed a resolution declaring that it wouldn’t endorse any Democrat except Bernie Sanders in next year’s presidential election.

Many commentators, including some less-sophisticated DSA comrades, saw this as a bad move. One opposing delegate summed up the argument of many when he or she said, “Trump is too dangerous to take cards off the table right now”; that side narrowly lost the resolution battle.

The argument is that the DSA has backed itself into a corner. If Sanders loses, they reason, the DSA will be unable to endorse the winner. That will mean that the DSA will be sidelined, marginalized from the anti-Trump opposition that will coalesce around the Democratic nominee—which this author believes will be Sen. Kamala Harris from California.

Republicans: Stop Pandering to the ‘Diversity’ Fetish — Rediscover Your Principles

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

The Republican Party top brass is all in a dither. The “diversity” of the Republican congressional delegation is shrinking.

The recently announced retirement of Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) will leave only one black Republican in the Senate and zero in the House. The GOP currently has only 13 women serving in the House of Representatives (there are 184 men), and this is sending the Republican hierarchy into panic mode.

If trying to match the Democratic Party in “minority” candidates is a top priority, then the GOP is, as usual, way out of touch with its base.

The base cares about principles, not melanin. They care about the Constitution, not genitalia.

Marxists Work to Reinforce ‘The Squad’ in 2020

Not content with Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley—the far-left congresswomen collectively known as “The Squad”—the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and allied Marxist groups are targeting multiple congressional seats with far-left candidates in 2020.

No one is safe. The DSA and its pro-China allies, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and Liberation Road (formerly Freedom Road Socialist Organization, or FRSO), are targeting dozens of seats currently held by Republicans, moderate Democrats, and even by insufficiently Marxist members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Most will not make it past the primaries, but some have at least a reasonable chance of being elected.

Here are four serious far-left contenders who could be reinforcing “The Squad” in January 2021.

Cori Bush

Cori Bush is targeting Missouri’s 1st Congressional District, which encompasses St. Louis, Florissant, and Ferguson. Her Democratic primary opponent is William Lacy Clay Jr., a veteran of both the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus, who has represented the district since 2001, succeeding his father William Lacy Clay Sr. In 2018, Bush stood against Clay Jr., losing by about 20 percentage points.

A native of St. Louis, Bush is a registered nurse, an ordained pastor, an activist, and a “community organizer.” She first came to prominence during the Ferguson anti-police protests of 2014, where she played a significant, if largely covert, role.

How We Re-Elect Trump in 2020

By: Lloyd Marcus

Democrats, fake news media, and Hollywood are desperate to block Trump’s reelection in 2020. Their problem is that Trump has been awesome for America. Our economy is booming. Blacks, Latinos, and women are experiencing unprecedented prosperity as Trump continues to restore power back to We the People. Trump’s swiftly growing list of achievements towards making America great again is extraordinary.

Democrats hope to win the presidency with their usual lies, addicting voters to government dependency, and convincing everyone that they are victims. Therefore, the Democrats’ presidential campaign is built upon falsely branding Trump as a racist white supremacist, promising free everything to everyone without anyone having to work, and criminalizing speaking the truth.

Because Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives spoke the truth that our country is being invaded by illegals, progressives absurdly claim that Limbaugh and conservative media are responsible for the El Paso shooting and must be silenced.

Libya, Hezbollah Arms Dealer Sentenced Los Angeles

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

“Mr. Ghanem was literally a merchant of death who was ready, willing and able to sell weapons, including surface-to-air missiles, to any paying customer, with zero concern for the death and destruction these weapons might cause,” said U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna, in a news release from the DOJ.

Among Ghanem’s clientele for such missile systems were customers in Libya, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq and leaders of Hezbollah, according to federal authorities.

Evidence presented during his trial showed that he brokered the services of mercenary missile operators to a militant faction in Libya in 2015, conspiring to make use of Russian-made Igla and Strela surface-to-air missile systems, according to the DOJ.

He would negotiate the missile operators’ salaries and terms of service — facilitating their travel to Libya, coordinating their payment and offering them “a $50,000 bonus if they were successful in their mission of shooting down airplanes flown by the internationally recognized government of Libya,” the DOJ states in a news release.

American arms dealer who attempted sale of Russian-made missiles to Libya sentenced to 30 years

US authorities were alerted to Ghanem when he approached an arms dealer in Los Angeles in 2014.

Undercover agents approached him in Athens claiming they wanted to ‘sell’ $200,000 worth of arms. Ghanem claimed to represent Iraq based members of Hizballah [a US-designated terrorist group] and clients in Iran.

He was arrested in Greece in 2015 and was later extradited to the United States.

“War makes me happy,” he was quoted saying to an agent a day before his arrest.

Huge Fentanyl Bust of Retired Deputy and Son

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Just an every day common home, except it wasn’t.

Meet Larry McCallister and his son. Enough fentanyl that if it actually hit the streets, an estimated 750,000 people could have died from an overdose. We, however, do not know the official source that the retired sheriff deputy and his son had to acquire the narcotics. That is a key unanswered question.

  

Retired Cabell County Deputy Sheriff and Son Indicted on Drug and Gun Charges

1.2 Kilos of Fentanyl Seized

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Huntington has returned a six-count superseding indictment charging Steven Dale McCallister, 45, and his father, Larry McCallister, 76, a retired Cabell County Deputy Sheriff, with various drug and gun crimes.  Steven Dale McCallister was arrested on June 12, 2019, at the McCallister home in Barboursville following the execution of a search warrant on the residence.  During the search, law enforcement officers seized approximately 1.2 kilograms of fentanyl, 300 grams of methamphetamine, over $8,000 in cash, $4,000 of which was from an earlier undercover purchase of fentanyl.  A Smith and Wesson, Model 686, .357 revolver was also seized.  Larry McCallister was at home and present during the search.
