Qasima Wideman

Durham, North Carolina member of the pro-North Korea, Iran, Russia, Workers World Party.

In February 2016, a workshop titled: “Disrupting Islamophobia” was presented to the members of Showing Up for Racial Justice in Durham. This workshop was facilitated by Qasima Wideman and Eva Panjwani of the Workers World Party and Manzoor Cheema of Muslims for Social Justice – a Muslim Liberation Theology organization.

In May 2016, Eva Panjwani and Qasima Wideman accepted an award on behalf of Muslims for Social Justice from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization front group Black Workers for Justice.

In 2016, Qasima Wideman also addressed a Left Forum in New York at a panel entitled, On the Frontlines: Queer People of Color Fighting for Socialism in the US South.

In the US South, a growing movement of queer people of color have been rising up against the reactionary, oppressive status quo. The recent struggles against North Carolina’s anti-LGBTQ laws, as well as the struggle against racist police terror and the movement against Donald Trump’s racist Presidential campaign, have all been flashpoints in the effort to shut down bigotry and oppression in the South. These activists have been on the frontline in the movements to fight back against oppression and to fight for a revolutionary solution, socialism.

Qasima Wideman spoke alongside Loan Tran, Workers World Party and Eva Panjwani, Queer Trans People of Color Coalition, Durham, NC.

From a Workers World Party Durham Branch, August 15, 2017 statement on arrest of our comrades: on the eve of the arrest of Takiyah Thompson.

From Qasima Wideman, one of several members of Workers World Party who were involved in the tear down of a Confederate statue in Durham on August 14:

“Confederate statues aren’t just hunks of metal and concrete. They represent the roots and history of a system of white supremacy that disenfranchises, murders, displaces and harms Black and Brown people up through today. If the people decide they want to remove such a statue, that should be their right. Love does not trump hate. It hasn’t taken down any Confederate statues or stopped any of the racist and fascist violence that people in Charlottesville, Charlotte, Ferguson, Baltimore and every where face every day. Only organized people’s power will take down white supremacy. Through racist drug laws and the prison industrial complex, cops do the paid work of white supremacy. The Trump regime has emboldened these racists.”

Takiyah Thompson, member of Workers World Party and student at N.C. Central University, who climbed to the top of the statue to tie a rope around its neck before the crowd tore it down:

“The people decided to take matters into our own hands and remove the statue. We are tired of waiting on politicians who could have voted to remove the white supremacist statues years ago, but they failed to act. So we acted.”

Is North Korea the Bait in the Trap? Will Russia and China Combine to Strike America?

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

My good friend, geopolitical strategist Jeff Nyquist believes that America may be walking into a trap if she attacks North Korea.

Russian and Chinese forces are moving into the area. Both countries are clearly preparing for war. Few doubt that America can defeat North Korea alone, but what will happen if Russia and China pile in? The US military is at its weakest point for many years. Right now Russia and China have big advantages in both conventional and nuclear forces. NATO is weak and divided. America is preoccupied with internal strife not seen since the 1960s. What better time could there possibly be to launch WW3 – especially if President Trump can be lured into a first strike?

Tactical advantages combined with the moral high ground if the US shoots first make for a very tempting and long awaited opportunity for Moscow and Beijing. It is now the ‘best time in history’ for the China-Russia relationship.

Why not strike now? Why wait until President Trump has a chance to rebuild Obama’s gravely weakened military?

Do we think that Russia and China did not learn a lesson from the humiliations of the Reagan era?

From JR Nyquist.com:

“The Strategic Significance  of “Russia Hacking the Election”

The political preparation of the morale of the people is of decisive importance in present-day conditions, since the use of weapons of mass destruction in war imposes exceptionally high and unprecedented demands on the political morale of the population.
– Soviet Military Strategy [p. 458]

Last Autumn Russia held a massive nuclear war civil defense exercise involving 40 million people. Russian TV explained, “Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.” Such was the rationale. Meanwhile the United States has no civil defense training for its population at all. Last February President Vladimir Putin ordered a “snap check” of Russia’s armed forces, wanting to know if Russia’s troops were ready for battle. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, “Special attention should be paid to combat alert, deployment of air defense systems for a time of war.”

On 20 April 2017 The Sunday Express published photos of Russian youngsters being trained with various weapons. There are pictures of children engaged in field exercises, holding rocket launchers, wearing gas masks. It would seem that the Russian government wants to properly train its young people for war. Yet who is really threatening Russia? Who would be crazy enough to launch a war of aggression against the world’s number one nuclear power?

Another 20 April headline states: “WW3 TENSIONS RISE: Shock footage shows Putin’s forces moving to North Korea’s border” — which means that Korea is a place to watch, ideally situated as a hotspot. There is a video which supposedly depicts one of three military trains headed toward the North Korean frontier. There have been reports of helicopters and tanks moving through the area as well.

The evidence of war preparations in Russia and China is plentiful. Russia and China’s prewar moves include: the accumulation of large gold reserves (for when paper currencies begin to collapse); an increase in agricultural output and the stockpiling of food in huge underground cities and bunkers; the production of a new generation of weapons (tanks, fighters, missiles, etc.); the infiltration and corruption of the West’s ruling class;  the exploitation of political divisions in the United States for the purpose of destroying social trust or to encourage a civil war; and publicly pretending that the great power rivalry of previous decades is a thing of the past while secretly continuing that rivalry.

It’s too bad, of course, that the CIA will never discover any of this. The facts may be known, but they will not be acknowledged; instead, they will be explained away. The political imperative of our time has been to claim victory in the Cold War. The economic imperative has been market optimism (i.e., the peace dividend). The West has always been blind to the big picture. Western leaders are psychologically incapable of seeing that Russia and China — as the No. 2 and No. 3 Powers — are logically obligated to strive against the No. 1 Power. As of this writing, the President of the United States may boast that America is ready to rain “fire and fury”on its enemies, but the reality is quite different. America’s enemies are now ready to rain fire and fury upon America; for America is a divided country, intellectually confused, deracinated and demoralized. It is not the powerful, united and stable country of the past. The American people have, in large part, lost their instinct for national self-preservation. They have no real civil defense, yet they do not even feel their defenselessness. They are unprepared and ignorant of their enemy’s motives. Their leaders are a patchwork of plausible crooks, panderers and empty suits.

Last year an anonymous high-ranking NATO military official was quoted by La Stampa as saying, “We are at war, a hybrid war, the last step before the shooting begins.” This is the kind of quote a journalist gets from a frustrated military insider. In the first instance, the insider is frustrated because the national authorities are not raising more troops or building defenses. The insider speaks to the journalist because the powers-that-be are not listening to him. Therefore he pours out his complaints to a reporter. The truth must be told, after all — even if nobody listens. War is coming. War is being prepared against the West. As the anonymous NATO military official explained, “I’ve never seen so many Russian military exercises and provocations at the same time … [they are] meant to test our readiness.”

Speaking of tests: Late last year it was reported that Russia tested 162 new weapons since intervening in Syria. Meanwhile, the communist government of China has officially told its citizens to prepare for the start of World War III. Do they know something we don’t? It seems they do. Graham Allison recently pointed out in a Los Angeles Times Op-Ed, “If war breaks out on the Korean peninsula, China is ready to protect its national interests.” According to Allison, the Chinese are preparing to “push deep into North Korea in the event of crisis.” Allison further noted, “If Chinese and American forces again meet in Korea [as they did during the Korean War of 1950-53] the PLA will not at all resemble the low-tech army of the past.”

Some of our leaders imagine that China and Russia will help the United States contain the North Korean threat. This idea is yet another self-deception. The Russians have given North Korea its weapons of mass destruction. China provides North Korea with conventional weapons and food. There would be no North Korean threat to South Korea, Japan and the U.S. if Russia and China had not nurtured it. Ask yourself why Russia and China have gone to so much trouble? If we have the courage to see, the answer is not far to find.

It has been my contention, for many years, that the KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn was generally correct in his analysis of the liberalization that led to the collapse of the USSR. Golitsyn predicted the liberalization before it occurred, and he accurately predicted where it would lead. He said that the communist party would appear to lose its monopoly of power. This would allow Russia access to capital and technology it could not have acquired during the Cold War. This capital and technology would enable Russia, further down the road, to build a military machine second to none. Golitsyn argued that Soviet liberalization was devised with this end in mind. It was also devised to eliminate anti-communism and destroy the West’s vigilance so that communism could make gains across the globe without anyone noticing. If we look at what has happened, from Venezuela and Nicaragua to Brazil and Nepal, South Africa, Congo and Angola, communism did not disappear. It has been victorious in country after country. But nobody in the media says anything. And this is quite telling. Even more alarming, the writings of Trevor Loudon and Cliff Kincaid suggest that communism has successfully penetrated the U.S. Government. There are many questions about the Obama administration which have not been asked; yet if we ask in earnest, the answers might prove more than a little alarming.

The shame of today’s “experts” is their failure to recognize that Golitsyn’s main thesis has endured the test of time. Even more important, his thesis continues to explain what we see today — and what is presently unfolding. Whatever errors he made, Golitsyn grasped the essence of Sino-Soviet grand strategy. It is this strategy that is now manifest in the provocations of North Korea. The old Communist Bloc never went away. It still exists behind the facade of “capitalist” China and “Democratic” Russia. It’s tentacles in Eastern Europe remain intact. It’s agent networks and allied communist parties are still in operation. The North Korean regime is an openly communist regime, even now. It was part of the Communist Bloc and is still supported by Moscow the same as in 1950. The importance of North Korea for Russia and China lies in its geographyKorea is situated in the one theater of operations where Russian and Chinese military forces can unite most effectively together.

The next point to be made about Russian and Chinese war preparations is tricky. In the modern world, military aggression is generally viewed as bad. Those who start wars of aggression are said to be criminals. It follows that the governments of Russia and China want the United States to start the next world war. They want the United States to be criminally culpable. In fact, for many decades Russian military textbooks have assumed that the next great war will be started by the Americans. We read in V.D. Sokolovskiy’s authoritative text, Soviet Military Strategy, “The class essence of bourgeois military strategy lies in the fact that it serves the reactionary aim of preparing war to destroy the most progressive social system — socialism — and to prevent the inevitable development of mankind along the road to communism.” (p. 515, Rand Trans).

It is, in fact, part of Russian and Chinese military doctrine that a future war will be started by the Americans. But do not be fooled. The Russians and Chinese will choose the time and place to begin the war. Through a satellite country they will engineer an irresistible provocation (i.e., an alleged lunatic brandishing nuclear weapons). To this end they have built up Iran and North Korea. We should have no illusions about this. America will be goaded into striking first. But the truth is, Russia and China will use America’s desperate preemptive measures to justify a much larger war of aggression; for the Russian and Chinese military doctrines only pretend to be defensive. In fact, both countries have built their military forces for attacking a distant enemy — the United States of America. One Russian military text states, quite clearly, that, “We believe that the main determinant in the attack is the most decisive operation possible, having for its purpose the total destruction of the enemy’s armed forces, and particularly the destruction of his nuclear weapons; that is, the achievement of results such that he would no longer be capable of offering further resistance.” [From an article by Lt. Gen of Aviation, G. Lobov titled “Comments on Types and Forms of Combat Operations,” Voyennay mysl, 1964, no. 11, p. 15.]

You cannot write such a thing unless you are contemplating a surprise attack; for the safest way to destroy America’s nuclear weapons is to attack them before they are launched. This idea is implied throughout Russian military literature. When I was interviewing the Russian military intelligence defector Stanislav Lunev in 1998, journalist Christopher Ruddy asked him what was the most decisive factor in determining the outcome of a future war. Lunev said it was surprise. Let us be perfectly clear: the Russians plan to strike first. Yet, this strike cannot be out of the blue.

Here is where North Korea comes in. It is the geographical point at which Russian and Chinese forces can be combined. It is a regime predicated on nuclear provocation. How long can the United States continue to ignore the “North Korean madman”? Thus, it is only obvious that the United States is being goaded, little by little. The American president is being led to believe that he hasn’t any choice in the matter, that North Korea must be preemptively attacked.

And what happens if the U.S. launches a preemptive attack on North Korea?

The Russians and Chinese will denounce as “aggression” any preemptive strike on North Korea and launch a prompt counter-attack against the United States. In the resulting battle the United States would almost certainly lose an aircraft carrier. The blow to American prestige would be tremendous. The president of the United States would probably be forced to resign, or he would be impeached. Perhaps there would be a military coup. The dollar would fall and America’s allies would be encouraged by Russia and China to abandon the United States and realign themselves with the new East Bloc.

Next, we must consider (in this context) the ongoing investigation of the 2016 election and the oft-heard public accusations against the President of the United States; namely, that he is in the pay of the Russians — or that the Russians put him in the White House. If so, why did they put him there? Such a question seems absurd in the context of peace. In the context of a world war, however, this question is like a dagger aimed at America’s heart; for as the U.S. commander-in-chief is accused of colluding with Russia, what becomes of national morale? Immediately the country is divided on the rightfulness of the highest military authority, and a “house divided” cannot stand.

Therefore we must add to the list of Russia’s war preparations the idea — inserted into our national consciousness — that Russia “hacked the U.S. presidential election.” This idea wounds the U.S. president and damages national morale in advance of a war. In fact, it is probable that this idea was invented in a Russian think tank with a military purpose in mind. As we see from the “Golden Shower Dossier,” Russia has intentionally fueled this rumor of Trump’s disloyality.

There is also the campaign, which began in 2013, in which Putin is portrayed as a Christian and defender of Western Civilization. This is absurd, of course, and only believed by people who haven’t studied Putin carefully. Yet Patrick Buchanan, a famous American conservative, praises Putin and encourages other conservatives to follow suit. Meanwhile, the same Leftists who would have been arrested if war had broken out in 1973 are posturing as anti-Russian patriots. If war breaks out, who is sent to prison? Conservatives or Marxists?

The bizarre political situation of today, whereby the Left levels treason charges against an elected American president, represents a stunning role reversal. The evidence against President Trump does not warrant the resulting hysteria which continues month after month. And yet, if anyone wishes to understand this strange development they have only to realize that it’s part of a Russian prewar active measure — plain and simple. There is no other interpretation of these events that so succinctly and perfectly explains them.

Texas Republican Congressman Will Hurd – Russia Is Our Enemy

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Texas Republican Congressman Will Hurd is a former CIA officer, and serves on the House Intelligence Committee, investigating Russian interference in the last elections. I don’t agree with him everything he says, but he’s got Russia nailed.

From a CNN interview with Mark Preston

Hurd: Russia is our adversary. They are not our ally. The Russians, Vladimir Putin is very clear, he has one goal and that’s to re-establish the territorial integrity of the USSR. And he can’t do it militarily, he can’t do it economically, he has to use asymmetrical warfare and that means eroding the trust in democratic institutions. That’s the US That’s the EU. That’s NATO. And one of the issues, one of the ways that they do this is with disinformation or … covert influence operations. Which means we, the United States, have to have a counter-covert influence strategy, which we don’t have.

Preston: So you brought up Russia … I trust, as you have said, in these folks in the intelligence community [who say Russia tried to interfere in the US elections]. Is it frustrating when you don’t hear the White House really give a full-throated response behind that?

Hurd: I stand behind the intelligence community assessment of this as well. The Russians were trying to manipulate our elections. Now, did they impact the vote tallying machines? No. So, President Trump won the election fair and square, but that doesn’t change the fact that there was attempts of manipulation. The Russians have been doing this for decades in Europe, they’re doing it now and they are going to continue to do that. … I think it is frustrating when we allow the Russians to continue to win, and what do I mean by that? The Russians’ goal in their activity was to sow, was to drive a wedge, whether real or perceived, between the President, the intelligence community, and the American people. And by the discord that continues, that allows those goals to continue to be achieved.

In defending President Trump we must take care not to defend Putin or Russia. We should support the hardest possible line against the Putin regime.

Russia is America’s and President Trump’s number one enemy.

Go here for proof.

Weekly Featured Profile – Juyeon Rhee

KeyWiki.org

Juyeon Rhee is one of most militant North Korea supporters in the United States. An immigrant from South Korea, Rhee served as the Program Coordinator of Education and Exposure Programs at New York based Nodutdol and has helped to organize annual delegations of US subversives to both North and South Korea since 2002.

Juyeon Rhee “was blocked from boarding a plane at LaGuardia Airport in New York City on the morning of June 22 2017” as she was on her way to protest the U.S. THAAD missile defense system from South Korea.

“Delegation coordinator Juyeon Rhee of the Task Force to Stop THAAD in Korea and End Militarism in Asia and the Pacific was blocked from boarding a plane at LaGuardia Airport in New York City on the morning of June 22 [2017]. A protest campaign to demand that her travel ban be lifted is currently underway, with hundreds of organizations and individuals sending letters of protest to Moon Jae-In and the Blue House, including prominent peace activists like Nobel Peace Laureate, Mairead Maguire; Academy Award-winning director, Oliver Stone; and American author and Pulitzer Prize winner, Alice Walker.

Rhee was also forbidden to enter her home country in 2016, when the South Korean government blocked the entry of Juyeon Rhee and Hyun Lee, into South Korea. The two were representatives of the U.S.-based Solidarity Committee for Democracy and Peace in Korea. They had traveled to South Korea to participate in the annual Jeju Peace March as well as join protests against the recent U.S.-South Korean decision to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system in South Korea.

After being detained by immigration officers at Incheon International Airport, Rhee and Lee were deported pursuant to Articles 11 and 12 of the Korea Immigration Control Act, which prohibits the entry of foreigners who, among other things, are “deemed likely to commit any act detrimental to national interests of the Republic of Korea or public safety.”

According to a sympathetic press release;

Rhee and Lee had traveled to South Korea numerous times in the past and encountered no barrier to entry. They have never broken any laws in South Korea, much less been deported in the past.”
The denial of their entry can only be seen as an attempt by the Park Geun-hye administration to block peace activists from internationalizing the growing opposition in South Korea against THAAD deployment. Since announcing its decision to collaborate with the U.S. military to deploy the missile system in Seongju, North Gyeongsang Province, the government has waged an aggressive campaign to crack down on all those who oppose the government’s decision. President Park recently referred to those voicing opposition, many of whom are ordinary Seongju residents, as “subversive forces” and declared, “It’s important to block subversive forces from all affairs, and we must be thorough in weeding them out.”

In March 2013, Juyeon Rhee spoke to a New York gathering of the pro-North Korea Workers World Party on the “DPRK Crisis.”

As of March, 2013, Juyeon Rhee served as a board member of the Los Angeles based Korea Policy Institute, the most influential pro-North Korea front organization in the country.

Khader El-Yateem: DSA Marxists run Socialist Lutheran Arab for New York City Council

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Lutheran pastor Reverend Khader El-Yateem is the latest Democratic Socialists of America crypto-communist to seek public office. He is running for the New York City Council to represent the Bay Ridge area in Brooklyn. El-Yateem says he’s running as a Democrat to “reform the party from within.”

According to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:

“When I became a citizen of the United States it felt like I was born again, and the moment I became a U.S. citizen I registered as a Democrat. As an Arab-American, the Democratic Party is the closest to me, and I think it’s up to us to rise up and to fight and to reform the Democratic Party, so people like me and others can participate.”

El-Yateem is a 22-year resident of Dyker Heights, having immigrated to America from Palestine with his family in 1992. The founder of the Salam Arabic Lutheran Church, El-Yateem has served on the Community Board for 12 years.

“I felt Trump ran his whole campaign targeting Arabs and Muslims. After the election, the Arab and Muslim community became surveillance targets again.” 

According to Brooklyn DSA Electoral Working Group coordinator Tascha Van Auken, who’s coordinated the group’s efforts withing the El-Yateem campaign, the DSA has sent 25 to 30 volunteers to Bay Ridge per week to help canvas and door knock since El-Yateem gained the group’s endorsement. And like El-Yateem, she said that “residents of the 43rd District don’t tune out when they hear the dreaded “s” word.”

“As far as the DSA goes, this district went for Bernie, so when people hear ‘Democratic Socialists of America’ I think people associate that with ‘Bernie Sanders’ and have a positive reaction to it.”

According to Van Auken, DSA chose to endorse El-Yateem in part “because he’s Trump’s worst nightmare: an Arab-American immigrant working to build the political revolution who refuses to take money from developers.”

Check this out.

Then go here to donate to the best of Rev. El-Yateem’s Republican opponents, Bob Capano.

Mazen Malik: Oregon State Official Has Terrorist Support Background

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Mazen Malik

From Bombthrowers

Most Oregonians know Mazen Malik, a Senior Economist at the Oregon State Legislature, from his occasional appearances touting the alleged tax revenue bonanza that marijuana sales have brought to Oregon. But many likely do not realize that in the 1980s, Mazen Malik was an active supporter of Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), an anti-Israel organization whose horrific terrorist acts resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people.

It is important to understand that communists worked with radical Islamic organizations just as they do today. This unholy alliance has been described as the Red Green Axis and is discussed in Trevor Loudon’s film, the Enemies Within.

With this in mind, consider that the Line of March was an influential ’80s Maoist group that had openly supported the Soviet Union by 1987. Their publication Frontline listed Mazen Malik as a representative of the “General Union of Palestinian Students” for a June 1987 event titled “Fighting the Upsurge of Racist Violence.”

The “General Union of Palestinian Students,” or GUPS was established in 1959 in Cairo by Yasser Arafat himself. A long term KGB agent, Arafat led to GUPS into having an affiliation with the Soviet Union’s international youth front, the “World Federation of Democratic Youth,” or WFDY. According to a 1994 tape of current CAIR leader Nihad Awad, the “General Union of Palestinian Students” (which Awad lead) was “part of the PLO here in the United States.”

As an aside, the still-active “World Federation of Democratic Youth” is hosting a communist youth festival in Sochi, Russia in October 2017, where 20,000 young communists from all over the world will be gathered. The event is timed to coincide with the 100th Anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution and the venue was arranged through the personal intervention of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It should be noted that Mazen Malik did not abandon radicalism in the 1980s. Through the early 2000s he took part in many marches and rallies against the Iraq War and in support of Palestinian statehood.

Malik further addressed an April 20, 2002 march organized by “Portland Peaceful Response Coalition,” to “coincide with an international day of action called by peace activists and other progressives in the Western Hemisphere and Europe who are seeking an end to U.S. and Israeli violence.”

Despite the tremendous power facing the Palestinian people, they would prevail in the end asserted Mazen Malik, one of the organizers of the demonstration. Malik also lashed out at the hypocrisy of U.S. diplomatic efforts that put the responsibility for ending the violence entirely on the shoulders of Yasser Arafat.

Additionally, Malik served as Oregon liaison for the far left “American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee” and was a leader of “Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights,” as well as the “Palestine Arab-American Association.”

Prior to service with the Oregon State Legislature in Salem, Mazen Malik was Chief Economist for the Oregon Department of Transportation. In these positions, Malik presumably has had access to high level infrastructural and political information. Much of this could be valuable to foreign intelligence services, terrorist organizations and state sponsored foreign commercial operations.

If Mazen Malik held a similar high level position in the US military, he would be subject to regular security background checks. Given his terrorist and communist connections, could he pass such a test?

Why is Mazen Malik trusted to hold such a high level civilian state government position?

Communiqués From The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Communiqués From The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy is a great book.

When does the soul enter the human body? At birth? At conception? This is the only important question in the abortion debate.

Are human beings essentially spiritual in nature, as most, but not all, conservatives believe?

Or are humans (forget the “being” part) merely a collections of cells, as most, but not all socialists believe?

If you believe, as does Florida author Thomas C. Wigand, that man is spiritual in nature and that the soul enters the body at conception, then abortion is clearly wrong. Tom Wigand makes the case that few if any conservatives are making. That if man is spiritual in nature and that spirit enters the body the moment cells start replicating, then abortion must be immoral. Because at the moment of conception, we are no longer dealing with mere cells, part of a woman’s body, to be disposed of like hair or fingernail clippings, but a new autonomous spiritual being. Any anti-abortion argument that does not address the true nature of human life, will make no real headway.

Tom Wigand has written a great book. A book that deserves a lot more attention. Communiqués From The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy is available on Amazon and you should go there now and buy it. Also buy a copy for someone you know who can be swayed. A liberal niece, who has had a little too much indoctrination in her sociology classes. The “leaning conservative” friend, who needs a lot more philosophical ammunition to stiffen his spine, to make him a valuable soldier for our movement.

Tom Wigand’s Communiqués  cover so much ground. Everything from Alinskyism to abortion. “Crony capitalism” to communism. George Washington to George Soros. From the wisdom of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution they bequeathed to us, to the connivers, cowards and traitors of both parties seeking to undermine it. Tom’s opus examines the forces working to bring America down. He gives much needed encouragement to those seeking to uplift this great nation and to restore the Constitution that is the “soul” of this nation. “Communiques” examines what is wrong with America and clearly and succinctly explains how to fix it.

Tom Wigand is a very astute political analyst, a constitutional scholar, an entertaining and witty writer, a philosopher and a patriot. Tom is what they used to call a “Renaissance man” –  a student of life, well grounded and versed in all that makes us Western. A student of politics, philosophy, science, culture and Theology.

This all shows through in the depth of his writing.

If you’re a conservative who loves good writing and a great argument, a searcher for deeper philosophical grounding, a patriot who wants to better your country, or even a socialist who wants to understand the conservative worldview, buy this book today.

I personally recommend it.
