Founded in 1991 by the Marxists of Democratic Socialists of America and their decades-long ally Bernie Sanders, the Progressive Caucus is now 74 members strong and is far and away the most powerful faction in the Democratic Party.
DSA backed Lloyd Doggett before he was even a congressman.
In July 1984, Houston DSA members decided to support that year’s election campaign, by then State Senator Lloyd Doggett.
According to the August 1984 newsletter of the Houston Democratic Socialists of America:
At the July meeting we decided that DSA should provide identifiable DSA campaign workrs to the Lloyd Doggett campaign this Fall.
Sen. Doggett is certainly a candidate we can all support enthusiastically…
If you would like to be a DSA Doggett volunteer, call Bruce Griffiths at….
But Rep. Doggett would never openly support DSA’s congressional front group.
Since 2015, DSA’s Austin local has re-formed and is now several hundred members strong. It has huge influence in the Travis County Democratic Party and has forged a strong alliance with Rep. Doggett, partially through its front group, the Austin local of Texas Alliance for Retired Americans.

According to DSA member Glenn Scott, President of the Austin Chapter of Texas Alliance for Retired Americans:
“Austin Reports a Terrific Medicare Event”, June 2015;
We had a terrific event on Saturday. We have put Austin TARA on the Austin/Central Texas political and advocacy map! Over 147 people attended the event which means we met our goal of 150! In part due to Congressman Doggett’s great reputation, we brought in many new faces. We went well beyond the TARA contact list for this event.
We built stronger ties with labor groups through this event. At least 8 unions or CLC and Building trades council contributed $. One key to turnout was our list of over 30 endorsing organizations. Most of the endorsing organizations sent at least 1 or 2 and some brought as many as 8 to 10. Austin DSA got 10 members there and TSEU brought the most with at least 12 or more. Congressman Doggett’s staff was another factor, – they did a letter to constituents and sent emails and did press for us in addition to our own efforts…
Maybe Rep. Doggett feels that his DSA comrades have more than earned his open support? Maybe after more than 30 years in public office, it’s time for Lloyd Doggett to nail his socialist colors to the mast?
Nitsch started her campaign at a clear disadvantage, lacking name recognition or a political resume. She had never held a public office, or served on any local boards or commissions. Meanwhile, her strongest opponent had served as ACC trustee for the previous 6 years, had a long resume of community activism, and received endorsements from most local Democratic elected officials and leaders.
But Nitsch did have the strong backing of a huge Bernie movement in Central Texas, a DSA chapter whose large membership provided over 100 block walkers and phone bankers, and the full support of Our Revolution (the national organization that grew out of the Sanders campaign) in the runoff election.
After volunteering for the Sanders campaign in the summer of 2015, Nitsch became the Campaign Coordinator of Texans for Bernie for Travis County and, later, one of five Austin DSA comrades who served as Sanders delegates at the DNC.
Nitsch’s progressive vision and strong support base made for a vigorous, people-powered campaign. According to Austin DSA Co-Chair Danny Fetonte, “DSA members provided the foot soldiers for the campaign.” Nearly 300 DSAers staffed phone banks, attended Democratic Clubs and union meetings with Nitsch, block walked, did mailings, and put up signs at member’s homes and at friendly businesses.
Our Revolution also played a pivotal role in Nitsch’s victory. They sent over 51,000 text messages and made over 13,000 calls to supporters during the campaign. According to volunteers, many of the people that voted for Nitsch did so as a direct result of Our Revolution’s concerted efforts.
The Texas Democratic Party is being heavily infiltrated by Democratic Socialists of America Marxists, who are enjoying explosive growth on the back of the Sanders Presidential campaign and the anti-Trump movement.
In recent months, DSA has opened locals all over Texas, from Dallas to El Paso, Houston to the Brazos Valley and San Antonio.
DSA locals, DSA website, 01.26.2017
Backed by union muscle and money, much of it from out of state, DSA aims to play a major role in the left’s rapidly expanding campaign to turn Texas blue.
This Marxist activism in the heart of Red State Texas should neither be ignored or underestimated. If Texas can be flipped back to the Democrats, there will never be another Republican or conservative President. America as we know it will be over.
President Trump referred to ISIS as ‘sneaky, dirty rats’ in his interview with Sean Hannity this week. I have much more descriptive terms for them, but I understand the use of sanitized descriptors for these monsters. Trump is correct that when we fought Germany and Japan, they wore uniforms and were easy to identify. With ISIS, you can only go by their religious beliefs and their military moves. This is where extreme vetting comes into play. And perhaps the cunning use of flags (see Eddie Izzard):
In all seriousness, President Trump is right… these are evil bastards. And evil always loses in the end… see General ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis. Trump also discussed enhanced interrogation techniques and torture. Personally, I’m all for them. I truly believe that there are times when it is the only thing that produces results, if you are going to get anything at all out of the enemy. The enemy has no moral dilemma about torturing us. War is hell and sometimes violence is required. I know that is shocking… the left can just deal with it.
Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Thursday evening, President Donald Trump had some choice words for the Islamic State.
We have evil that lurks around the corner without the uniforms. Ours is harder because the people that we’re going against, they don’t wear uniforms. They’re sneaky, dirty rats. And they blow people up in a shopping center. And they blow people up in a church. These are bad people.
When you’re fighting Germany, they had their uniforms, and Japan, and they had their uniforms and they had their flags on the plane and the whole thing. We are fighting sneaky rats right now that are sick and demented. And we’re going to win.
Trump also discussed the use of enhanced interrogation techniques, after Hannity argued opponents of waterboarding would endorse the technique if their own loved ones had been kidnapped by terrorists.
Trump said yesterday that despite his feeling that torture works, he’s going to defer judgement on that to his Secretary of Defense, General Mattis, who openly disagrees with him. I find that surprising from Mattis, but we will see. I think Mattis is more of a ‘shoot first and screw the intel’ kind of guy. Trump is deferring to Mattis as he should here. He said Defense Secretary James Mattis “doesn’t intend to use it” and “I’m with him all the way.”
President Trump is also cultivating a close relationship with Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who has been extremely critical of radical Islam. “He went into a tough situation, and all I can say is, I like him,” Trump declared. As for Saudi Arabia, Trump suggested he was biting his tongue in the interests of maintaining a good relationship with the Kingdom, but he is not pleased with their past activities: “A lot of money is being spent from certain countries on radicalizing people. I don’t like that. I don’t like that.” Saudi Arabia is not our friend and they should be treated as an enemy as far as I’m concerned. Along with Iran, I blame them for 9/11. Trump will have to tread lightly there, but in the end he may find that you can’t really befriend Islamists. It always ends badly.
Speaking to protesters assembled in Columbus Circle on Inauguration Day, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization Political Secretary, Steff Yorek, stated, “We need to stay in the streets the entire four years opposing Trump and making the country ungovernable.”

If you doubt Yorek’s ability to make good on her threat, please check out Trevor Loudon’s latest mini-documentary below. It details, among other things, Freedom Road’s close ties to Putin’s Russia.
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released their second video today on the radicals threatening violence for the Inauguration. This one deals with groups and activists that are acting through #DisruptJ20. As I understand it, somewhere between 75 and 100 protest groups are descending on DC. In this video, you get to see activists saying that they are going to block all checkpoints and ways to get in and out of the events surrounding the Inauguration. They will also be chaining trains to shut them down as well.
The video is well done and goes into detail on some of the players involved. These are radical communist groups and anarchists looking to create chaos and halt the Inauguration itself. We are now hearing of numerous alleged terrorist plans by these people. It is a good thing that DC police say they are prepared for all of this. There will also be 200,000 Bikers for Trump arriving who will stand with the police, the National Guard and the Secret Service to ensure order is kept and patriots are protected.
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released a new undercover video on Tuesday showing left-wing activists with the “DisruptJ20” effort plotting to stop Donald Trump’s inauguration by chaining D.C. Metro trains and blocking roads.
One activist leader is captured on the Project Veritas video saying: “So simultaneous to the checkpoint blockades in the morning, we are also doing a series of clusterfuck blockades, where we are going to try to blockade all the major ingress points into the city.”
The blockade plan allegedly included stopping the D.C. Metro, according to an audio recording:
So we figured out this, um, the trains pull up, one person is going to lock one end of a chain to an edge, and on the other end of the chain the end of the car, so on and so forth, done. It takes 15 seconds and everyone can leave and literally it can’t go anywhere at that point, its anchored. And you can use a really thin chain — you don’t need a heavy chain — that would require like a bolt cutter to undo, basically to shut down that line … Metro Center, Gallery Place, and L’Enfant Plaza, they are all close enough to walk to and that’s every single line in the city.
These idiots are also supposedly planning to set up tables that are meant to distribute charitable donations for the poor and homeless, but will instead block roads to the inauguration: “So, we want to encourage you all to give to the poor and the homeless. Go right down to 2nd and D, help us to block the vehicle traffic and the pedestrian traffic flowing to the inauguration. And set up tables, food, give out whatever, right there, there 2nd and D a block from either direction and help to block traffic.” Another plan apparently discussed was to move protesters into position near a park by posing as members of a yoga class. Then there are violent tactics to be used in street battles with police. We go from the uber lame to the uber violent very quickly here.
Breitbart has also uncovered a disturbing article from another group that tells radicals to ‘go hard’ at this Inauguration. It makes the case to anarchists, socialists and communists from across the country about “why would it be worth driving across the country to a city crowded with reactionaries and police.” I hardly think they really need a reason other than hate. Claiming that the police will have their hands full, they put forth that this “is our only chance to fight Trump under the laws and police protocol of the Obama era.” That says quite a lot all by itself.
The article is from a website called CrimethInc. They are encouraging blocking access into and out of the city. They are telling participants to rove the city and shut down DC’s transportation infrastructure. They are also promoting lone wolf terror attacks. They are telling rioters who can’t make it to Washington, DC to “choose their own targets” and “decorate your city in advance.” This is only the beginning for this and other groups as they intend to create formations of disruptive soldiers for their cause.
And here come the Black Bloc anarchists. What would an evil, violent party be without them? They will officially gather at 10:00 am on Friday, January 20th in Washington, DC at the Logan Circle and the Francis Scott Key Memorial. The group’s call-to-arms is blunt:
Wear all black | January 20th, 10 AM | Logan Circle, DC We are calling for a mobile bloc opposing capitalism and fascism at the inauguration. Meet at Logan Circle at 10 am. Organize with your friends and come prepared to defend each other and everyone else who is standing up to the Trump regime.
The evident goal of Black Bloc is to allow protesters to break the law. “You may have heard of the notorious Black Bloc, a venerable, if not doddering, anarchist tradition in which a mass of direct action enthusiasts gather, all wearing black clothing and masks, and engage in some level of illegal activity. When everyone in a group looks the same, it is difficult for the police or others to tell who did what. Most criminal activities are better carried off in a less obvious manner, of course, but there are situations in which it is necessary to step outside the limits in public.”
These are violent individuals who cover their faces and then get their violence on. They destroy everything they can attack and do it with enthusiasm. Black Bloc is a very dangerous group. Crime is fun for them. They will all dress alike to confuse the police and authorities. They will bring weapons with them and when you see them don their masks, you know that violence will soon follow. These groups think of us as Nazis. They advocate throat punching and other violent techniques. They aren’t to be taken lightly.
Bikers for Trump and those attending the Inauguration and events should be very mindful of what is going on around them and be prepared for anything. As I said earlier, we are looking at roughly 100 radical groups descending on DC. Most are communists and anarchists… all are violent. You can see some of the planned events of #DisruptJ20 here.
Some of the groups that are protesting include:
Workers World Party
Women’s March On Washington
League of Conservation Voters
Smash Racism DC
There are many, many more, but these are the primary ones. Stay safe this week.
Project Veritas — Part II: NEW Investigation Uncovers Plot to Chain the Trains & Shut Down DC During Inauguration
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are at it again and this time they’ve uncovered groups in DC plotting terrorist attacks against events connected to President-elect Donald Trump’s Inauguration. The culprit showcased in this video deals with the DC Anti-Fascist Coalition. They were actively planning to hit the DeploraBall with acid ‘stink’ bombs and/or turn on the sprinkler systems to force it to end and people to run out into the cold. The undercover reporter talks with three of the die hard members of the coalition, getting them to reveal their plans and the fact that they have already scoped out the premises.
Project Veritas has turned this evidence over to the FBI, Secret Service and the police, who will hopefully take action over it. But this isn’t the only group… there are many more like #DisruptJ20 who are planning attacks this week. Plus, there are 200,000 Bikers for Trump coming into town to stand against them and work with the police and National Guard to keep the peace. Explosive is an understatement here. Project Veritas began investigating after getting numerous tips that groups were planning attacks against Trump’s Inauguration events. The hidden camera captures Colin Dunn, Luke Kuhn and Scott Green discussing aggressive and illegal activism.
An undercover video of leftists meeting in Washington, D.C., has exposed a well-advanced plot to use foul-smelling butyric acid to disrupt this week’s “Deploraball” event in honor of Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The video released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas showed the rabidly anti-Trump coalition already had scouted the National Press Building, and members were confident they could release acid there “with no negative consequences for our side, nor any collateral damage.”
The video exposing the plot includes statements from several members of the group DC Anti-fascist Coalition, which is allied with other far-left groups plotting to prevent Trump’s inauguration as president.
Project Veritas said the group plotted to deploy butyric acid at the National Press Club during the Deploraball event scheduled for Thursday.
“The meeting, captured on hidden camera, was held at Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza restaurant that is better known as the location of the Pizzagate controversy,” Project Veritas said. “The coalition members discuss the steps they would need to take to halt the Deploraball event.”
“If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it,” Kuhn said in the video. That’s pretty explicit and specific. It also shows that they have declared war against Trump, Republicans and conservatives. This group is very reminiscent of the Weather Underground terrorists.
Green claimed he wanted to ruin the evening of those attending the DeploraBall, a gala hosted by Trump supporters. Kahn agreed with Green, saying, “Yeah, if you had … a pint of butyric acid, I don’t care how big the building is, its closing.” Butyric acid, which “is very efficient” and “very, very smelly,” would force attendees of the DeploraBall to evacuate the whole building, Green said. The event is set to take place at the National Press Club. The group stated that this attack could be pulled off “with no negative consequences for our side, nor any collateral damage.”
The meeting, captured on hidden camera, was held at Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza restaurant that is better known as the location of the Pizzagate controversy. The coalition members discussed the steps they would need to take to halt the DeploraBall event. One of the activists summed up the objective: “The next four years we are going to fight Trump and everything he stands for with no quarter asked, no quarter given. No mercy of any kind.”
The group is connected to #DisruptJ20. They state online: “Join us for a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump.” The group calls for civil resistance and they promote the carrying out of anti-DeploraBall actions.
“This event is organized by our friends the DC Anti-Fascist Coalition, their call to action: Will we let white supremacists, rape-culture sexists, and fascists celebrate hate in our city? Absolutely not. When these people gather to promote their truly deplorable ways, we will protest. Members of the Alt Reich are having a fancy ball, taking a smarmy victory lap through our DC streets to celebrate their sexual assaulter in chief, Donald Trump. …. We are outraged that this group, the worst of the worst, is being hosted by the National Press Club. These deplorables have demonstrated they care nothing for truth, will harass and abuse to get their way, and wait for Donald Trump to come down hard on immigrants, Muslims, people of color, women, and the left. We must stand for a world of diversity and equity. We must stand for a world based on love and justice, not fear. We must stand for a celebration of each other’s differences, not segregation and ignorance. We must stand against racism, Islamophobia, sexism, and all forms of oppression. We call on people of conscience to protest and help send a message to the Trump Administration and his followers: We are better than this, and we will never accept this hate in our nation’s capital.”
The coalition’s goal for the ball is to ruin their outfits or make it impossible to conduct the ball and/or stay in the building. These plans should be viewed as potential hate crimes and terrorist attacks. Project Veritas’ next video will deal directly with #DisruptJ20. You can read here about Trevor Loudon’s excellent undercover work and research as well. There will be a huge media presence at the DeploraBall and other Inauguration events, as well as heightened security.
Once again, my long time friend and colleague, Trevor Loudon, has uncovered plans by the radical left to create mayhem. This time it is #DisruptJ20 (a bunch of Occupy Wall Street wannabes) and Trevor got audio of some of their plans for next week. Trevor does this type of research and goes into the lion’s den of communists to obtain proof of what they plan and scheme. This time… he hit the jackpot.
This radical group is planning to disrupt the Inauguration any way they can next week. They will block security checkpoints, they will physically fight with Bikers for Trump and others that come to the Inauguration and they are planning a dance party at Mike Pence’s home. The plans are extensive. They have planned to kick off their festivities with a “pure dance party at Mike Pence’s house” on Jan. 18th. They are going to accost the home of the Vice President-elect. I hope he has a ton of security there and they are none too gentle with these asshats.
“It’s his last few days living in Chevy Chase before he moves into the vice presidential residence, and we’re going to send him off with a bang,” the unidentified woman gleefully says in the audio.
An anti-Donald Trump group is planning massive disruptions for next week’s inauguration covering everything from “blockades” at security checkpoints to a “dance party” outside VP-elect Mike Pence’s house, according to group leaders as well as newly obtained audio of their apparent plans.
The organization #DisruptJ20 already announced at a press conference Thursday its various plans to wreak havoc at Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration and in the days leading up to it.
A conservative group also shared with FoxNews.com what it said was audio from a Jan. 8 #DisruptJ20 meeting at a Washington church, giving even greater insight into the group’s planned D.C. “shutdown.”
The audio, recorded by Trevor Loudon with Capital Research Center, purports to show a female member detailing plans to “do everything we can to try and stop people from being able to access the inauguration.”
After they are done trying to ruin Pence’s home, the group will turn their attention to one of the main events… the “DeploraBall,” which occurs the next day on the 19th. The group is calling it the “alt-right neo-Nazi … party to celebrate Trump.” That’s disgusting and nothing could be further from the truth. “We’re gonna crash it,” she says. Again, I am sure that Trump will have a ton of security there, as well as the police and these people are not going to get a warm reception.
On the morning of the actual Inauguration, the group plans to block security check points and entrance avenues into the event. “We’re going to be doing blockades,” the woman says in the audio. “We’re going to [be] blockading checkpoints into the security zones. We’re also going to be blockading roads and other modes of transit into the city.” And there is more to their itinerary. At 10 am, they are planning an “anti-Capitalist, anti-fascist bloc” that “will be an unpermitted march that will be leaving from Logan Square.” This is where I expect them to get their violence on. I can’t imagine the Capitol police don’t already know about this and are gearing up for it.
Griff Jenkins of Fox News is all over this and doing a great job of reporting on it. These plans were presented at a January 8th meeting and there evidently were a lot of people there. What’s even wackier is that they are being fairly up front about it and are proud of what they are about to do. She went on to say: “We’re exercising our freedom of speech and really want to set a tone for the next few years that there’s a massive body of people … who are very concerned about the dangerous direction Donald Trump is taking our country in.”
“Momentum is building for a historic day of action on January 20th, jamming the streets of DC ahead of Trump’s inauguration parade and making it impossible for the media to gloss over Trump’s hateful agenda. The country will know: we don’t cooperate with an illegitimate fascist president, and they don’t have to either.”
At the above link, you will also see a partial list of those interested and those attending the radical gatherings.
#DisruptJ20 members are not shy about their plans. One organizer told Fox News he hopes to “turn the inauguration into as big of a clusterf— as possible.” ANSWER Coalition will also be there. They will protest as well, but are approaching it from a different angle. They are galvanizing tens of thousands of people at permitted locations — like Freedom Plaza and the Navy Memorial — to march and protest in a more traditional way.
The #DisruptJ20 audio was obtained by Dangerous Documentaries, a project of the Capital Research Center, as part of its upcoming documentary on left-wing protesters, “America Under Siege: Civil War 2017.” The film is set for release before Inauguration Day. I just want to say that Trevor Loudon pretty much risked his life to get that audio and should get credit for it. Trevor was discovered and thrown out, but not before he secured the audio. You can visit his site here and then go to KeyWiki.org, where the bulk of his research is located.
If you are going to DC for the Inauguration or any of the festivities, please watch out for each other and realize these radicals mean business.
You just have to love Ted Cruz’s style. During the confirmation hearing on Tuesday for Jeff Sessions, the circus came to town. It was choreographed by Medea Benjamin of Code Pink infamy. They had people there dressed as the KKK and others wearing pink tiaras. They screamed for Black Lives Matter. And Ted Cruz did exactly what he should have done as they were being escorted from the chambers… he laughed at them. This time it was send out the clowns. He also noted that free speech was a wonderful thing.
Cruz went on to say that for eight long years the left has crippled this nation by ignoring the rule of law. Jeff Sessions as attorney general will once again impose the rule of law and adhere to the Constitution. This is why the left is scared crapless over him being confirmed. But they can’t stop it… Sessions will become attorney general and then go after illegal immigrants, refugees, radicals and criminals who had a free ticket during Obama’s reign. The party is over for this scum and they wail like a bunch of demons who know their hour is at hand.
From Western Journalism:
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, hammered Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday for their vigorous assault of attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions, under the auspices of a reverence for the rule of law, when considered in light of their silence as the Obama administration carried out years of lawless deeds.
But first, he had to deal with protesters who interrupted the Sessions confirmation hearing with shouts of “Jeff Sessions, you are a racist!” and “Black lives matter!”
After Capitol Police escorted them from the room, Cruz remarked that “free speech is a wonderful thing,” before getting to the matter at hand.
“This has been an interesting day at this hearing listening to Democratic senator after Democratic senator give speeches and praise of the rule of law. And I am encouraged by that, because for eight years it has been absent,” Cruz began his questioning.
“For eight years we’ve seen a Department of Justice consistently disregarding the rule of law,” he continued.
Cruz recited a whole list of lawlessness by the Obama administration and the Department of Justice. His indictment of the Democrats was nothing less than impressive: “When Eric Holder’s Department of Justice allowed illegal gun transactions, illegally sold guns to Mexican gun traffickers, as part of Fast and Furious — guns that were later used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — the Democratic members of this committee were silent.”
“When Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with Congress’ investigation into Fast and Furious, once again the Democrats on this committee were silent,” he continued. And they were… over and over and over again. “When the IRS illegally targeted United States citizens for exercising their First Amendment views, for exercising their roles in the political process, Democratic members of this committee were silent,” Cruz said. Instead the DOJ refused to prosecute the matter and turned it over to a major donor of Barack Obama’s. Talk about corruption.
And Cruz was far from done… he made a laundry list of corruption, including Operation Choke Point, sanctuary cities, the Obama administration’s release of tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens whose past offenses included rape and murder, the paying of nearly $2 billion in ransom to Iran for American hostages, the numerous changes to provisions of Obamacare without congressional approval, and the recess appointments by the president, which the Supreme Court later ruled, unanimously, were unconstitutional.
Cruz is now celebrating that with the confirmation of Sessions, the rule of law will once again be in play. And adding to the misery of the left and the shredding of Obama’s legacy, Cruz will reintroduce today the bill to fully repeal Obamacare.
Finally, Cruz pointed out that if we played the same game the Dems did, when Sessions is confirmed, he could do exactly what the Democrats did to us… “Now, if we were to play a game of tit-for-tat, if what was good for the goose was good for the gander, then a Republican attorney general should be equally partisan; equally disregard the law; should advance political preferences favored by the Republican Party,” he said. He asked Sessions what a Republican attorney general should do and Sessions said that he would do the opposite of partisan rule… he would observe the Constitution and the rule of law. And that is why Jeff Sessions needs to be attorney general. Cruz’s presentation, case and closing were a slam dunk… that’s how you do it folks.
