“Punch Trump in the gut”: Kansas socialists back Congressional candidate James Thompson

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

America’s largest Marxist organization, 20,000 strong Democratic Socialists of America, is intervening heavily in a special Congressional election to be held in the 4th District of Kansas.

DSA wants to “Punch Trump in the gut”…to deliver a shock defeat in the first Congressional election since Donald Trump won the presidency in November 2016. To this end, the socialists are heavily backing Democratic candidate James Thompson in a deep red district vacated by Trump’s CIA pick Mike Pompeo.

Regarded as an impossible mission only a few weeks ago, the April 11th election is now widely regarded as very much “in play.”

Candidate Thompson, a Bernie Sanders supporter,  plays to the middle, emphasizing his military background, but his Marxist supporters regard him as a “progressive Democrat,” very much worthy of their support.

Many Wichita Democratic Socialists of America supporters are actively supporting Thompson’s campaign. The most important is probably the candidate’s right hand woman, Field Director Rhonda Cox.

Rhonda Cox took on the important role of coordinating Thompson’s campaign volunteers in February, 2017.

In November 2016, Rhonda Cox joined the 400 member Wichita Democratic Socialists of America public Facebook groups and has signaled her intention to attend at least two Wichita DSA meetings since then.

Rhonda Cox has worked to enlist help from other “progressive” groups including Sister District and Moveon.org. She says “this is such an important race and a test of the Trump administration. If he (Thompson) can win this race in this red red state of Kansas it will be like punching Trump in the gut”.

Wichita Democratic Socialists of America seems to have made electing James Thompson a top group priority.

On February 8th, James Thompson participated in a debate with four other Democratic Party hopefuls, moderated by Friends University political science professor and Democratic Party activist Russell Arben Fox.

In recent days, the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) used Thompson’s alleged extreme pro-abortion views to attack the candidate in this ad.

The NRCC attributes its ad to statements allegedly made by Thompson at the February 8th event.

Russell Arben Fox

“That forum took place at Friends University, and I moderated it, and know exactly what was said about abortion that night, because I was the one who asked the candidates the questions,” says Russell Arben Fox.

“Thompson is pro-choice. But there was nothing – NOTHING – said that evening, by anyone, about “late-term abortions” or “sex-selective abortions.”

Thompson’s campaign has requested that the ad be pulled from a local TV station, but Matt Gorman, communications director for the NRCC, has said on Twitter that “the ad is still airing and is 100% accurate.”

No one unfortunately, has mentioned the fact that Russell Arben Fox has been a key leader of the Wichita Democratic Socialists of America for close to a decade.


DSA hits 20,000 member mark

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

A year ago Democratic Socialists of America, this country’s largest Marxist Organization, had 6,500 members.

On April 5th, thanks to the Bernie Sanders campaign and the Trump presidency, DSA reached 20,000 signed up comrades. 

A good chunk of this membership is also active in the Democratic Party. They are also organizing down ballot campaigns across the country, in a serious effort to move grass roots politics to the far left.

Their latest victory is Quad Cities Democratic Socialists of America member and Rock Island Illinois diesel technician Dylan Parker who has just won a position on the Rock Island City Council.

While the world is rightly focused on Syria right now, America needs to understand that domestic enemies are also a grave threat to the US Constitution.


Big Names Headline the People’s Summit in Chicago – It’s a Who’s Who of Communists

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | I Have The Truth

The commies have truly come out of the closet. The whole gang will be getting together in Chicago on June 9th thru the 11th. Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore, Danny Glover and Van Jones will be headlining the People’s Summit. Chicago is where the headquarters of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is located. They are still labeling themselves as progressives, but anyone with two functioning brain cells knows these are devout communists… comrades in arms. Thousands will join them to plot taking back America from President Trump and the Republicans. It will be one giant war room.

This should be common knowledge now and come as no surprise to anyone. Van Jones has a long, violent history of being a Marxist. Don’t believe his protestations that he has reformed, he hasn’t. Bernie Sanders calls himself a socialist… in reality, he’s a communist and the current healthcare plan he is presenting to Trump should prove that. He is pushing single payer healthcare. Michael Moore is a Marxist film producer and the editor of The Nation. And Danny Glover never met a communist or dictator he didn’t love.

From PolitiStick:

Soviet-style socialist Bernie Sanders, along with fellow radical communist and CNN commentator Van Jones, Marxist film producer Michael Moore, and Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez-loving stooge and actor Danny Glover will be headlining the upcoming “People’s Summit” to be held from June 9 to 11 in Chicago, the headquarters of the Communist Party USA.

Calling themselves the politically correct term “progressives” instead of the anti-American, anti-freedom communists that they are, the above communist leaders will join thousands of other totalitarians who are hellbent to fundamentally transform America into North Korea or Venezuela.

Groups sponsoring the event include a laundry list of George Soros-funded communist front groups who are butthurt that corrupt and untrustworthy Hillary Clinton was not elected to continue Obama’s lurch to the left.

Among the “convening organizations” listed on the group’s website, include the following: National Nurses United, People’s Action, United Students Against Sweatshops, People for Bernie, Our Revolution, United Electrical Workers, Color of Change, Progressive Democrats of America, Democratic Socialists of America, and Presente.

Many of the groups attending are funded by that old spider George Soros. Mark Svart, national director of the Democratic Socialists of America, had this to say: “President Trump exploited long-standing racial divisions between working people to gain power, when we know he’s packed his cabinet with the same characters who rigged the economy. We all need to team up and fight back, and pro-corporate Democrats aren’t doing that effectively. Democratic socialists know that defeating neo-liberalism is a necessary part of defeating Trump’s right-wing populist agenda and defending democracy itself. The People’s Summit helps us make the alliances we need against capitalism at its worst.” They are terrified that Trump will undo the progress they’ve made in turning America into a communist hellhole like North Korea, Venezuela or Cuba.

If you want to hear the sentiment from these jackals, take a listen to Nina Turner, a former Ohio state senator and a vocal communist supporter of Sanders during the Democrat presidential primary: “There is no force more powerful than a community on the move for justice. We will protest, we will plan and we will preserve in the building of political power from the ground up. This is our moment.” And they really, really believe it. They are saying go, go, go! That is why you see chaos and violence exploding in our streets now.

This is going to be a who’s who of radicals. Others attending include Shaun King, Frances Fox Piven and Palestinian Linda Sarsour. You’ve got proponents of Saul Alinsky, the Muslim Brotherhood and one of the founders of Cloward and Piven. Sounds like the party from hell to me.

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the US. It is one of two official US affiliates of the Socialist International. It was formed in 1982 from a merger of the Michael Harrington led Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee and the smaller New American Movement. DSA publishes a quarterly journal, the Democratic Left. While claiming to be socialist, Democratic Socialists of America is a Marxist organization, that draws heavily from the ideas of the late Italian Communist Party theoretician Antonio Gramsci. This is the true face of the left. The People’s Summit is an event organized and promoted by the CPUSA and those attending it are communists… pretty much the entire Democratic Party these days. And definitely the enemies within.


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.


WARNING IOWA! List of Socialists running as Democrats

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal


Marxist birds of a feather…

IOWA, do not vote until you read this!

As revealed in Trevor Loudon’s film the Enemies Within, the democrat party has been compromised by subversive socialist groups, including labor unions, that seek to fundamentally transform America. While socialist Bernie Sanders did not win the democratic nomination for president, his surrogates are hard at work scheming to force as many socialists into office as possible.

See the below list of socialists who are posing as Democrats in Iowa.

Our Revolution, Brand New Congress (who has not yet announced their candidates) – and Berniecrats, a compilation of socialist candidates – are just a few of the socialist organizations focused on infusing local, state and federal government with socialists. Related to Iowa specifically, the local affiliates of the AFL-CIO and Americans for Democratic Action also endorse socialists running as democrats. 

Just this month, the Iowa branch of the AFL-CIO openly linked to the official newspaper of the Communist Party USA network, People’s World:


There are many other subversive organizations providing funding and other support to radical left-wing candidates, such as Emily’s List, Human Rights Campaign and Council for a Livable World.

Here is the list exclusively for Iowa, sorted by organization:* 

Our Revolution (socialists):

Berniecrats (socialist candidates endorsed by Bernie Sanders, or have endorsed Bernie Sanders):

Emily’s List (Pro-Abortion Democrat women):

Human Rights Campaign (“Bathroom bill” organization)

Council for a Livable World (anti-military)

*Note, many of these candidates are endorsed by – and receive funding and support by – multiple subversive organizations.

Weekly Featured Profile – Randy Shannon


Randy Shannon

Randy Shannon is a Beaver County, PennsylvaniaDemocratic Party activist. “A Democratic victory in 2016 with a bigger progressive caucus can tax Wall Street, end austerity and discrimination, and put the nation to work building the solar infrastructure we desperately need.”

“We need progressives like Sanders, who support working families, running for President, for Senate, and for Congress wherever possible,” said Randy Shannon, convener of the Sanders for President PA Exploratory Committee.

Randy Shannon was a student leader in the 1960’s at Duke University. He left Duke to organize campus groups for labor, peace, women’s equality and civil rights in the South as a staff member of the Southern Student Organizing Committee.

He was an organizer for the National Welfare Rights Organization and led a local delegation to the 1972 Democratic Convention in Miami to fight for a $6400 guaranteed income.

He ran in the TN 5th Congressional District Democratic primary in 1972 successfully targeting a right wing anti-busing candidate. He worked as a welder and organized rank and file workers as a member of Teamsters Local 327. He moved to Pittsburgh in 1976 and still works in the R&D sector of the basic materials industry. In PA he organized the Pittsburgh Youth Movement for Jobs, was active in the peace movement and progressive politics.

In 1982, he moved to Beaver County and helped organize Beaver County Fightback, to defend the home ownership of unemployed steelworkers in the Ohio River Valley. He lead the Jesse Jackson campaign in the 4th and 22nd CDs of PA opening an office in Aliquippain 1988. He also helped organize a ballot access campaign for Dennis Kucinich in 2004.

Randy Shannon attended the 6th National Convention of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS) at San Francisco’s Whitcomb Hotel, July 23-26, 2009.

The “Building the Progressive Majority: Race, Class and Gender” plenary discussion began a series of panel and workshop discussions. The plenary panel consisted of reports highlighting work of CCDS activists in the South, in the Heartland “rustbelt states,” on the West Coast and New England and the East Coast. Randy Shannon’s report on Western Pennsylvania and the dire conditions in the wake of de-industrialization was particularly moving. He described independent political work with groups like Progressive Democrats of America in raising the consciousness and unity of the working class and Black community, and then in turn ally with forces like the Congressional Progressive Caucus in the Congress to defeat the right and advance progressive planks in Obama’s economic package. He stressed the importance of ending the wars and healthcare reform, especially HR 676 “Medicare for All.”


In April 2016, three Progressive Democrats of America members – Linwood Alford, Randy Shannon and Kerri Theuerl, ran for Democratic Party National Convention delegates for Pennsylvania’s 12th District – all committed to Bernie Sanders.

Randy Shannon , Pennsylvania, was elected in 2016 to the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism National Coordinating Committee;

WARNING: The socialists who won their primaries (by state)

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal


Hillary Clinton with Bernie Sanders

Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders supporters have regrouped and will mostly support Hillary Clinton for president.

The strategy is two-fold and incredibly organized:

  1. Elect Bernie Sanders-endorsers on the down-ballot. Many of these socialists posing as democrats have already won their primaries.
  2. Groom socialists to take over the federal government for 2018 and beyond.

There are two organizations focused on this effort: Brand New Congress and Our Revolution.

There are many additional organizations obsessed with getting radical left socialists into the federal government. Well-funded groups such as the Victory Fund (Spawned from the vile Human Rights Campaign, which provides support to gay and lesbian political candidates), the Council for a Livable World (which provides support to candidates who want to dismantle the military), and EMILY’s List (which provides support to candidates who are pro-abortion) are just three that come to mind.

#OurRevolution: Bernie Sanders organizes socialist takeover of Congress

“Helping to build a democratic socialist political force, DSA members have stepped up to run for political office around the United States. Their campaigns represent the next stage of the organizing that began with the Sanders campaigns, and their successes will reflect the strength of socialist organizing beyond national politics.” – Democratic Socialists of America website, August 23, 2016, “DSA Members Run for Office to Continue the Political Revolution

Senator Bernie Sanders has created a new 501(c)(4) organization whose non-stated goal is to fundamentally transform the United States into a socialist country. There will be over 2500 “house parties” in all 50 states livestreaming Bernie himself jump-starting the effort Wednesday evening.

After Sanders lost his bid to become the Democrat nominee for president, his allies have been busily plotting the complete transformation of America using the hashtag  . In addition to the ongoing effort to support so-called “Berniecrats” who endorsed the socialist during his presidential campaign, many “grassroots leaders from the Bernie campaign and a few ex-staffers” are dedicated to “replacing Congress all at once with a Brand New Congress in 2018.”

It should be noted that many Berniecrats already won their primaries. Americans need to pay attention. Here is just one example of a tweet touting winning Berniecrats:

The goal is to “recruit and run 400+ candidates as a single, unified, presidential-style campaign.” The candidates will follow an agenda inspired by Bernie Sanders’ policy proposals.

From the Brand New Congress website:

“We’re happy to see so many “Berniecrats” running in 2016 and we want to be supportive, but we’re just getting started, so we don’t think we’ll have that much to offer 2016 candidates. We think the way to win is to start very early and plan a great campaign. That’s why we’re focusing on 2018.”

Socialists are highly organized and dedicated to pushing through anti-American candidates who are not interested in limited government as envisioned by America’s founding fathers. In order to get America back on the path to peace and prosperity, constitutional conservatives need to strongly support principled candidates for office who will take their oath to the Constitution seriously.

One Percenter Bernie Sanders buys $600k waterfront ‘summer home’

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders

“Socialist Bernie Sanders just purchased a beachfront home to be enjoyed “seasonally” that would be the envy of any self-respecting one-percenter as reported at a local Vermont publication, “Seven Days” from the Independent Voice:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the proud new owner of a summer home on the Champlain Islands, Seven Days has confirmed.

The Burlington resident last week plopped down nearly $600,000 on a camp in North Hero.

Sanders’ new waterfront crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront on the east side of the island — facing Vermont, not New York. The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally.

Must be nice.

Hacked DNC Emails’ Startling Implications

By: Roger Aronoff | Accuracy in Media


Not since JournoList, the forum of left-wing journalists who coordinated their messaging to support the Democrats, has there been such a pile of smoking guns proving that the left-wing, so-called mainstream media, are, in fact, the public relations arm of the Democrat Party. They are in cahoots with each other, as we’ve been pointing out for decades.

The Democratic National Convention was planned as an event to demonstrate party unity as Democrats from around the country come together to crown Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential nominee. But undermining that unity was a series of leaked emails demonstrating that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had its thumb on the scale the whole time. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporters who complained about the party’s partiality toward Hillary Clinton now have their proof that the process was rigged. “The messages [from the DNC] showed members of the committee’s communications team musing about pushing the narrative that the Sanders campaign was inept and trying to raise questions publicly about whether he was an atheist,” reported The New York Times.

Sanders supporters in Philadelphia took to the street to call to “lock [Hillary] up,” wearing “Hillary for Prison” t-shirts to emphasize that point, according to The Wall Street Journal.

While the leaked DNC emails may have unleashed fresh anger from Sanders supporters who still feel cheated as the convention comes to an end, the mainstream media have done all they can to minimize the damaging content. Jeffrey Toobin, writing for The New Yorker magazine, suggests that this story is less than meets the eye. Nothing scandalous. And in a way, he is correct. The fact that the Democratic establishment had its thumb on the scale for Hillary was well understood by many to be the case. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the DNC, had not gone rogue. She was carrying out the agenda of Mrs. Clinton and President Obama, who appointed her to that position. But someone had to be sacrificed to appease the Bernie wing of the party, and it was her.

But other issues that were exposed had more significant implications. For one thing, the leaked emails revealed a strong vein of racism and bigotry within the party establishment that would have created a firestorm if it had come from the Republican National Committee.

For another, it showed how closely and collaboratively the DNC works with the establishment media. They are effectively on the same team. The Washington Post, The New York Times, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Politico and the rest of the liberal media act as the public relations arm of the DNC. Their goal is to defeat the Republicans and their candidate Donald Trump, and to smooth the way for a Hillary Clinton victory.

And perhaps most importantly, the leak revealed the likelihood that Mrs. Clinton’s reckless and grossly negligent handling of classified materials for the four years she was secretary of state almost certainly landed those emails in the hands of the Russians, the Chinese, and various other intelligence agencies around the world, making her subject to blackmail if she were to ever become president.

Regarding the racism and bigotry, the leaked DNC emails reveal one employee calling for more “taco bowl engagement,” and another saying “I love you too. No homo. Phew.” “Imagine if the National Finance Director of the RNC used ‘no homo’ in an email?” asksTwitchy. Yet another mocked the name of a black woman, in what has been acknowledged to have been a racist comment.

Yet there seems to be little backlash from the organized left over the DNC’s own demonstrable prejudices. Following former President Bill Clinton’s crowd-pleasing speech on Tuesday night that was designed to humanize Hillary, many in the media have moved on. Sanders was apparently sufficiently appeased by the firing of Wasserman Schultz, who had previously announced that she would resign after the convention as a result of the emails.

However, the other big story related to the leaked emails—the one that the media hope gains little traction—is how the DNC was blatantly coordinating media coverage with members of the press. It appears that members of the press are violating their own journalistic standards by coordinating with Democrats. You have to wonder, who is manipulating whom?

One of the Wikileaks emails indicates that Ken Vogel of Politico submitted his entire article to the Democrats for their comments before sending it on to his editors. “Vogel gave me his story ahead of time/before it goes to his editors as long as I didn’t share it,” wrote Mark Paustenbach, DNC national press secretary, on April 30. “Let me know if you see anything that’s missing and I’ll push back.” Politico later called this a “mistake” by Vogel. Their mistake was getting caught. Otherwise they were fine with it. The practice of collusion is far too common.

We have long maintained that MSNBC is an unofficial arm of the Democrat Party. The Wikileaks emails show that Wasserman Schultz spoke with MSNBC president Phil Griffin about the comments of Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski, who called for Wasserman Schultz’s resignation because of the DNC’s blatant favoritism toward Hillary. Wasserman Schultz also reached out to Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd, who questioned whether a call to Morning Joe would be a good idea.

It cannot be denied: the mainstream media’s double standard favors Democrats and liberals, and derides Republicans. While the complicit media spin stories to favor Hillary Clinton, they relish publishing stories about Republican disunity.

But this story about Democratic in-fighting and betrayal isn’t going away anytime soon.

Despite the positive press, Hillary recently complained on CBS’ 60 Minutes that she has been treated with a double standard, a higher standard than other candidates. “I often feel like there’s the Hillary standard and then there’s the standard for everybody else,” she said. She’s right, but not in the way she means it. If anyone else had done what she didwith classified material, they would have been indicted.

While she maintains that the Hillary standard for Republicans is “unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited attacks with no basis in truth,” the reality is that Hillary Clinton has benefitted from widespread favoritism from both the DNC and the liberal media, which are both intent on ensuring that she reaches the White House. By supporting the DNC’s efforts to elect Hillary, the media have placed their own hand on the scale in favor of a particular candidate.

While these revelations are reminders of how complicit and incestuous the mainstream media have been, that behavior is likely to continue. They have a political agenda that is more important to them than accurate and unbiased reporting. They are doing a disservice to their profession, and to this country.
