Rev. Johnson

Rev. Nelson Johnson is a North Carolina church leader, social activist and a former Communist Workers Party leader.

Johnson has been active in the movement for “social and economic justice” since high school, in the late 1950s. He served as a student leader for the Student Government Association at A&T State University, in Greensboro, NC in 1970. Between high school and college, Rev. Johnson served four years in the United States Air Force. He continues to work for “social and economic justice” in Greensboro as Pastor of Faith Community Church and Executive Director of The Beloved Community Center of Greensboro.

Guided by his three-part emphasis of “diversity, justice and democracy,” Rev. Johnson is actively building relationships with and providing leadership within organized labor, faith groups and other public and private community organizations. He and other local ministers of the Greensboro Pulpit Forum led an active support effort in 1997 that resulted in a significant contract settlement for workers at the Greensboro K-Mart Distribution Center. As a result, he is frequently invited to share that success story at workshops and meetings, including those sponsored by the George Meany Labor Institute, the AFL-CIO of New York,and the Michigan AFL-CIO.

Because of his “extensive experience in community organizing and socio-political analysis,” Rev. Johnson is routinely invited to speak on university campuses around the country to share his vision of community building. He has written articles for the University ofPennsylvania Journal of Labor and Employment Law and The Witness Magazine, published by the National Episcopal Church. Rev. Johnson is also a former Contributing Editor for The Black Scholar magazine, National Chair and Contributing Editor for theAfrican World Newspaper and Assistant Editor for the Carolina Peacemaker of Greensboro, NC.

The New York based, pro-China Communist Workers Party was formed in 1979 out of theWorkers Viewpoint Organization and Nelson Johnson‘s Greensboro, NC, group, the Youth Organization for Black Unity. Nelson Johnson became the CWP’s chairman, while Jerry Tung served as general secretary and as the real leader.

Within a few weeks, Johnson was involved in the infamous “Greensboro Massacre,” when armed communists were involved in a street gun battle with the KKK. Five CWP supporters were killed, and 9 were wounded:

In the early 1980s, Johnson was involved in the CWP’s main front group – Federation For Progress – as was current leading California Congress member Judy Chu.

At the time, Nelson Johnson was a leader of the Organizing Committee of Coalition Against Black Genocide.

In recent years, Johnson has worked with former CWP comrade and “Greensboro Massacre” survivor, Roz Pelles, to build the very radical Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II‘sMoral Mondays movement.

Rev. Nelson Johnson was a member of that first group of seventeen people arrested on April 29th, 2013, on the very first Moral Monday. “People see the great crowds on Mondays,” he says. “What they don’t see is all the work that came before that.”

Ted Cruz

Is Ted Cruz Eligible to be President? Yes He Is!

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

Ted Cruz

I’ve strained relationships with  some friends over this issue.

Many people, desperate to prove President Obama was ineligible for the presidency, looked to the “natural born” argument in a futile attempt to remove the Marxist-in-Chief from office. I never supported this approach ( for several reasons), but I did appreciate the great work many of these people did exposing Obama’s very shady background.

When I came out in support of Texas Senator Ted Cruz for President two years ago, some of  these friends were offended. The logic was that while Ted Cruz was a good man, supporting him was akin to trashing the U.S. Constitution – as bad in their eyes as supporting the “usurper” Obama.

Some believe that Ted Cruz is not eligible to run for President of the United States due to the fact that he was born in Canada, even though his mother is a U.S. citizen.

My argument is simple.

Marco Rubio is eligible because while both his parents were non-citizens at his birth, he was born on U.S. soil, making him a citizen at birth – an “anchor baby.”

Ted Cruz is eligible because one parent was a U.S. citizen, which granted him automatic rights of citizenship, regardless of being born inside, or outside U.S. borders.

Barack Obama is eligible for exactly the same reason.

“Natural born” simply means being a U.S. citizen at birth, rather than becoming a “naturalized” citizen later in life.

As noted at USAToday by “two former top Justice Department lawyers:”

“Despite the happenstance of a birth across the border, there is no question that Senator Cruz has been a citizen from birth and is thus a ‘natural born citizen’ within the meaning of the Constitution…”

http://onpolitics.usatoday.com/…/ted-cruz-natural-born-cit…/

As noted at TownHall:

“But there are only two types of citizens under the law: Natural born Americans (from birth), and naturalized Americans, who undergo the legal process of becoming a US citizen. Cruz never experienced the latter proceedings because he didn’t need to; his mother was born and raised in Delaware, rendering Cruz an American citizen from the moment of his birth abroad.”

http://townhall.com/…/yes-ted-cruz-is-constitutionally-elig…

As noted at National Review:

“Of course he’s eligible,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz tells National Review Online.

http://www.nationalreview.com/…/cruz-birthers-eliana-johnson

Also at National Review:

“My conclusion would be that if you are a citizen as a consequence of your birth, that’s a natural-born citizen,” says Theodore Olson, the former Bush solicitor general who defended John McCain in a 2008 lawsuit alleging McCain was ineligible to be president.

http://townhall.com/…/obama_rubio_birthers_should…/page/full

This is perhaps the most compelling:

On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen”

“The Framers did not fear such machinations from those who were U.S. citizens from birth just because of the happenstance of a foreign birthplace. Indeed, John Jay’s own children were born abroad while he served on diplomatic assignments, and it would be absurd to conclude that Jay proposed to exclude his own children, as foreigners of dubious loyalty, from presidential eligibility.”

http://harvardlawreview.org/…/on-the-meaning-of-natural-bo…/

Here is the relevant Clause: Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Did the founding fathers really believe that any pregnant American woman who happens to be on holiday or business outside of America could be jeopardizing her child’s future chances of becoming the president of the United States?

For those who will not be swayed by the founding fathers likely intent or the numerous legal opinions by very credible scholars, I would opine that the onus is on you to present your case to the appropriate authorities.

Top lawyers: ‘No question’ Canada-born Cruz eligible for presidency

Lawyers for Obama and Bush dismiss ‘specious objections’ to Ted Cruz because he was born in Canada.

The “Founding Fathers” wanted to ensure that any future U.S. President was loyal both to the country and the Constitution.

Is there any candidate in the race more committed to the Constitution, and more loyal to the country than Senator Cruz.

I believe, that if the “Founding Fathers” were here today, most of them would be wearing Ted Cruz badges.

Trevor Loudon

Find out why New Zealand’s Trevor Loudon changed my thinking about almost every political event in America since 1920’s. How can so many of our best and brightest leaders in politics, business, media, and academics be so wrong about so often wrong about so many things?

Loudon reminds of facts we all once knew but forgot, because few people mention them today. He gives new information, including secret documents that were briefly made public in Russia before Vladimir Putin took control. He leads to conclusions which are both astonishing–and logical.

Loudon will speak at two area events Saturday, July 25. First breakfast with Trevor at 9:30 am (Shore Diner, Tilton & Fire Roads by Parkway Exit 36 in Egg Harbor Twp.) $10 additional cover over regular menu price to defray expenses.

Then, 6 pm catered reception/dinner with the author at beachblock home of one of our members near Plaza Condo (4600 Block) in Atlantic City. 100 donation for dinner/reception. Attendance at dinner deliberately limited to encourage one-on-one conversations with the author.

Loudon’s latest book “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within” explains how a small group of radicals changed politics of his native New Zealand in 1980’s by joining, and gradually taking over influential mainstream organizations. He describes how same tactics by similar groups are fundamentally transforming America today.
