Rep. Karen Bass Admits to Communist Party Mentor

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Los Angeles Congresswoman Karen Bass owes her career to a Communist Party USA mentor.

According to the Congressional Record:

HON. KAREN BASS OF CALIFORNIA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, Monday, January 30, 2017;

Ms. BASS. Mr. Speaker, I would like to honor the life and memory of my friend and mentor, Oneil COneil Marion Cannon]], who passed away on January 20, days before his 100th birthday….

“Oneil was instrumental in supporting my own work as a community organizer early in my life, and without his help my life would have taken a very different path…

I would like to salute Oneil Cannon for his longstanding commitment to serving and uplifting others, and for a century of fighting to make the world a better place.”

Oneil Cannon

The late Oneil Cannon in question was a fixture of the Los Angeles left.

According to the Peoples World:

As a member of the Communist Party, he became the education director in the Southern California District, and a member of the Party’s Southern California and National Central Committees…

Oneil was committed to electing Black and Latino representatives at all levels of government. He helped to elect Augustus Hawkins, Tom Bradley, Ed Roybal, Diane Watson, Maxine Waters, and Karen Bass.

Cannon campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008, and wept with joy along with millions of others when he was elected. He died peacefully, wearing one of his Obama T-shirts.

With decades of communist activity under her belt, Karen Bass would fail an FBI background check to work as a realtor or a school bus driver.

But that’s okay, there are no security checks to serve on any Congressional Committee: not the Armed Services, not Homeland Security, not even the Intelligence Committee.

If American voters understood how bad the infiltration is they would be horrified. There are many, many more like Karen Bass, trashing your Constitution every day.

To really understand how bad the problem is, check out my movie The Enemies Within.

Lloyd Doggett: Texas Representative finally comes out of the socialist “closet”

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Rep. Lloyd Doggett

Lloyd Doggett, a long time Texas congressman from the Austin/San Antonio area, has finally come out of the socialist “closet.”

Dogget has held office as a legislator in the Texas State Senate and served as a justice on the Texas Supreme Court, before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994.

Now after more than 20 years in Congress,  Representative Doggett has finally joined the socialist Congressional Progressive Caucus.

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.

In 2014, DSA front group Progressive Democrats of America assigned activists to deliver their material to almost every US Congressman and Senator, Tim Duda, a one time leader of San Antonio Democratic Socialists of America, was assigned as the contact for Rep. Doggett.

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?

President Trump: Russian surrogates are trying to undermine you – watch this before talking to Putin

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

American affiliates of a Putin funded Russian “anti-globalization” organization are leading the mass protest movement against President Trump.

Putin, and his intelligence services, are as usual, playing a double game.

Texas Marxist wins Community College Board of Trustees election: Socialism growing rapidly in “Lone Star” state

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

One more Marxist wins office in Texas…a trickle that must be stemmed before it becomes a tide.

In a surprisedown-ballot election victory, Austin Democratic Socialists of America member and Sanders campaign activist, Julie Ann Nitsch, won her runoff for Austin Community College Board of Trustees on December 13th, running as a Democrat.

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.

Weekly Featured Profile – Bahman Azad

KeyWiki.org

Bahmani.PNG

Bahman Azad

Bahman Azad is an Iranian-American peace and justice activist living in the United States. He has a Master’s Degree in Economics and a Ph.D. in Sociology from American universities. He served in the Iranian Air Force as a 2nd Lieutenant between 1971 and 1973.

He is a former acting director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Rutgers University. He is currently a Professor of Economics and Sociology at Berkeley College in New Jersey.

Azad has been active in radical politics since his arrival in the United States in 1973, first as a student activist against the previous regime in Iran and then as a member of the National Board of the Communist Party USA front U.S. Peace Council. He joined communist dominated Veterans for Peace in the early 1990s at the invitation of his close friend and then VFP President, long time Maoist David Cline. He is currently serving as the Chair of VFP’s Iran Working Group, Organizational Secretary of the U.S. Peace Council, Co-Chair of the Iran Pledge of Resistance and an NGO representative of the formerly Soviet controlled World Peace Council at the United Nations.

In 2004 Roger Keeran, and Thomas Kenny published “Socialism Betrayed: Behind the Collapse of the Soviet Union”

Special thanks went to Bahman Azad, Norman Markowitz, Michael Parenti, Anthony Coughlan and Betty Smith for reading the entire manuscript and suggesting editorial and substantive changes.

In December 2010, Alfred L. Marder, Catherine Goodman and Bahman Azad were listed as the originators of a U.S. Peace Council “Petition to President Barack Obama and Congress to end the Korean War and Normalize Relations,” a long time goal of communist North Korea.

We call on U.S. government to stop its repeated “war games” threatening North Korea, to stop demonizing but rather recognize North Korea as a sovereign nation, to engage the North Korean government in meaningful direct talks to end the Korean War, to sign a peace treaty, to remove all U.S. military bases and troops from South Korea, to negotiate with North Korea to dismantle its nuclear weapons as part of global nuclear abolition, and to normalize diplomatic and trade relations between the two nations.

Earlier this year Bahman Azad joined the Coordinating Committee of Hands Off Syria Coalition, a front group supporting the pro-Moscow regime in Syria.

Leading Pro-Palestine Communist Trains Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

protesters-fight-against-dakota-access-pipeline

A seasoned Communist Party USA activist has been lending her revolutionary expertise to the often violent “peaceful protesters” seeking to permanently shut down the nearly completed and highly strategic Dakota Access Pipeline.

Communists from all over the world have converged on the DAP site, near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, over the last several months to support tribal people from several states as they seek to further weaken an already struggling US economy.

Judith LeBlanc

Judith LeBlanc, Massachusetts raised, but a member of the Caddo tribe from Oklahoma, has been working with the protesters from the very beginning. This has been through her leadership role in the militant dominated Native Organizers Alliance.

The Native Organizers Alliance has been supporting tribal leaders as they develop strategies to counter the powerful economic elites behind the Dakota Access Pipeline…

Judith LeBlanc, director of the Native Organizers Alliance, has been working to support native leaders as they develop strategies to continue to challenge these powerful forces. In mid-September she helped lead a four-day training at Standing Rock with tribal officials, native-led non-profits, and local community and political leaders on power mapping, strategic campaign planning, and direct action.

Says LeBlanc:

For me, it’s a blessing in a moment like today to be the director of a national network of native groups, leaders, and organizers who are supporting grassroots native community organizing, the Native Organizers Alliance. As my Mom always said, “It is not enough to be right.” If you believe you are right, then get organized.

Earlier this month, Judith LeBlanc and three other “native women leaders”: Eryn Wise of the International Indigenous Youth Council, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) and member of the 2016 Democratic Platform Committee Deborah Parker (Tulalip Tribes) staged a sit-in at the headquarters of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, then led the crowd of about 1,000 people down the streets of Washington, even passing by the newly opened Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

LeBlanc has been a Communist Party USA leader since the 1970s. She has held several leadership positions in the party and has worked in leadership positions in the peace movement.

She has also spoken several times before the United Nations, mainly in support of the Palestinian cause, which she has championed for several decades.

The Dakota Access Pipeline protesters are being guided by serious communists and terrorist sympathizers.

Labor for Palestine, another communist controlled group, has been active in the North Dakota protests.

When the protesters turn to violence or sabotage, as they almost certainly will, there is a fair chance that the inspiration will come through the Palestinian connection.

Law enforcement needs to get on top of this situation quickly before someone is killed, or a serious act of sabotage or terrorism is committed.
