Khalid Kamau: DSA communist wins Georgia Council race

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Khalid Kamau, a member of the Marxist Democratic Socialists of America has resoundingly won a City Council seat in South Fulton, Georgia’s second largest city.

Also Black Lives Matter activist and Democratic Party member, Khalid Kamau, won 43% of the vote in a five-way primary, then 67% in the April 18th run-off.

Kamau’s impressive victory was won with massive DSA support. Marxists from across the country volunteered in, donated to and phone banked for comrade Kamau’s campaign.

According to Pittsburgh DSA:

Thanks to the work of DSA chapters across the country, including Pittsburgh DSA, Khalid Kamau won a whopping 43% of the vote in a five-way race. Our work helped put Khalid in a commanding 1st place, but it was short of the majority needed to win outright. Now we need to work together to put him over the top in the run-off election, so he can help advance the struggle for municipal victories around wages and housing.

“Far too many elected officials start their day thinking of your boss instead of you — but the working people of South Fulton will have a City Council member on their side: Khalid Kamau,” explained Maria Svart, Democratic Socialists of America’s national director. “Khalid’s win today is a tremendous victory for his community and a shot across the bow for politics as usual nationwide.”

Erin Parks, a Metro Atlanta DSA chapter member and Kamau campaign volunteer expressed enthusiasm: “Khalid’s campaign and victory prove that teamwork and a people-centered platform can prevail against all odds. His win is a harbinger of things to come in the Metro Atlanta progressive movement.”

Khalid entered today’s runoff election after coming in first place in a five-way primary election held in March with 43%. In that race, khalid won twice as many votes as the next runner up, and the highest percentage of any candidate running for any office in South Fulton. DSA members across the country made thousands of phone calls on behalf of khalid for both rounds of the election.

Khalid Kamau’s victory is part of a much bigger plan. DSA sees the new City of South Fulton as an opportunity to create the largest Progressive city in the South.

At February’s Young Democratic Socialists gathering, “Revolution at the Crossroads: Igniting the Socialist Resistance Against Trump,” Khalid Kamau “highlighted the right wing’s long-term strategy, especially their use of local races as a path for base building and candidate training. He argued that the left also needs to employ this strategy.”

In April 2017, Quad Cities Democratic Socialists of America member Dylan Parker was elected to the Rock Island City Council, 5th Ward Alderman, with DSA support.

Parker was the thirteenth DSA member holding elected office in the country, including Carlos Rosa, Chicago’s 35th Ward Alderman, Mike Sylvester of the Maine House of Representatives and Julie Ann Nitsch Austin Community College Board of Trustee in Texas.

Khalid Kamau’s victory is also indicative of DSA’s strong interest in Georgia. With more than 300 members in Atlanta alone, DSA aims to use upcoming Mayoral, Congressional and the next Gubernatorial race, to return a much more vulnerable than you might think Red State back to the Blue column.

Khalid Kamau’s victory was just a practice run.


New England Patriots rebuff CNN, NYT #FakeNews about White House event

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

New England Patriots forced to correct the political hacks at NYT Sports

The New England Patriots thankfully corrected an outrageous, politically charged tweet by New York Times Sports which heavily implied that the New England Patriots rebuffed the White House, where they were honored for being the Super Bowl champions this week.

The fake photo continues to be posted all over Twitter.

The original tweet received almost 33,000 retweets at the time of publication:

The New England Patriots responded:

Not to be outdone, the highly partisan Eleanor Mueller of CNN Politics picked up the “news story” with the headline “The Patriots go to Washington — some of them, at least.”

She writes:

“In photos posted to social media Wednesday, the New England Patriots’ turnout at the White House this year seemed to be noticeably smaller than in 2015, when the team last visited the executive residence.

A side-by-side comparison of the teams on both occasions showed a visibly smaller contingent to visit President Donald Trump than former President Barack Obama — a difference first noted by The New York Times.”

But of course, that is just more #FakeNews.

Both the New York Times & CNN updated their stories to reflect the Patriots tweet, but they both heavily downplayed the fact that they were caught in a politically-charged lie.

Look how the New York Times downplayed their #FakeNews:

While Eleanor Mueller updated her “news story” with the Patriots tweet (cached story here), the update is not explained and it is clearly buried. The headline is exactly the same, as is the implication that the New England Patriots took a pass on visiting the White House, a complete fabrication.


Trevor Loudon condemns #Berkeley thugs: Both sides

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

The “so-called Trump supporters” involved in recent violence in Berkeley are a complete disgrace.

This is an example of a photo being used to discredit President Trump and his supporters via businessinsider.com

There is no doubt that the Antifa people are violent, anti-American cowards. But to march into their “turf” knowing the results would be televised worldwide and inevitably be used to discredit the President’s multitude of decent and responsible supporters, was completely reprehensible.

Full disclosure. I opposed candidate Donald Trump until the last possible minute. After his inauguration, I backed him at several public speeches up until the election, as the only viable alternative to Hillary Clinton.

Since the election, I have also enthusiastically supported President Trump in several public speeches and issued a video America Under Siege:Civil War 2017, exposing the communist and foreign connections of the Anti-Trump protest movement. I supported the recent round of pro-Trump rallies around the country, and was asked to address one of them. I sadly had to decline because I was out of the country at the time.

That said, I am completely disgusted by the behavior of the violent “protesters” who are self proclaimed “Trump supporters” at the now infamous rally in Berkeley.

Was this a rally of peaceful Trump supporters? Or, was it a bunch of thugs looking for a fight? It was in my opinion a deliberate provocation by people who put their own egos above the cause of liberty.

Here are some predictable examples of how leftists are using video from Berkeley to vilify President Trump and his supporters:

These Trump “supporters” have damaged the Trump presidency and have presented every combative journalist around the planet with a perfect weapon to discredit the cause.

The pen is mightier than the sword. Liberty and the Constitution will be restored peacefully in this country…or they will not be restored at all.

Austin Democratic Socialists of America: Warning us of dangers ahead

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Austin Democratic Socialists of America are a force to be reckoned with in and around Texas’ capital city.

With 450 to 500 members and control of the local Texas State Employees Union, Austin DSA comrades have huge influence inside the Travis and Bexar County Democratic Parties. At last year’s DNC, about 55 delegates were DSA members, including about 40 percent of Sanders’ delegates from Texas. Given DSA’s explosive growth (6,500 to 20,000 comrades in one year), Marxist influence inside the Democratic Party can only increase.

Local Representative Lloyd Doggett has long been a DSA ally, but is not the only elected official in the socialists camp.

In a  down-ballot election victory in December 2016, Austin DSA member and Bernie Sanders delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Julie Ann Nitsch won her runoff for Austin Community College Board of Trustees.

DSA Members Glenn Scott, Julie Ann Nitsch, and Claudia Corum

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.

Next up,  Austin DSA is throwing its weight behind another member, Rick Trevino, who is running for City Council in neighboring San Antonio.

Rep. Lloyd Doggett is lending his support.

DSA’s immediate goal is to turn Texas blue. Since late 2016, DSA Marxists have opened new chapters in Dallas/Fort Worth/Houston, the Brazos Valley and the Permian Basin.

Given the way the Electoral College works, if Texas – with its 34 votes – can be flipped to the Democrate column (as Red State strongholds Colorado and Virginia already have been), there will never be another Republican President.

We need to pay attention to the massive Marxist movement into the Red States. That is where real change is happening. If this quiet insurgency is not exposed and reversed, we will all be flat-footed and dumbstruck as the left establishes a one party state in America in 2020 or 2024.


#FlipThe6th: Progessives bus in activists from all over the country to support Jon Ossoff

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Jon Ossoff, Congressman John Lewis, U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson

“We must unify behind Jon today and invest in his campaign like our lives depend on it.” —Rep. Stacey Abrams, Georgia Democratic House Leader

“Ossoff is the sort of progressive champion—strong on both racial justice and economic justice—who can channel that resistance energy into progressive volunteers and votes…”  Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action

Aggressive progressives are obsessively busing in volunteers from Michigan, Washington D.C., Maryland, New York, North Carolina and elsewhere in an effort to force a victory in Georgia’s sixth district special election for Jon Ossoff, a former intern for both Representatives John Lewis and Hank Johnson.

Jon Ossoff’s entire campaign seems to be about making President Trump angry. In fact, “his first serious email fundraising pitch” was titled “Make Trump Furious.” Just to prove his “resist Trump” creds, Jon Ossoff attended the Fourth District Day of Resistance shortly after Donald Trump won the election, an event sponsored by U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson “to rail against the incoming Trump administration and the GOP’s Congressional agenda.”

Using the hashtags  and , progressive operatives are active on social media in support of Jon Ossoff.

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.


Cornhusker Commie: Lou Braatz stands for Lincoln, Nebraska City Council, constitutionalists must pay attention

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

The United States’ largest Marxist organization, 19,000 strong Democratic Socialists of America, is pushing hard into Republican strongholds across the nation. New DSA locals have sprung up in red states like Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, Oklahoma, Idaho, Arkansas, Kansas, Alaska and now Nebraska.

Locals have recently been established in Lincoln and Omaha, with several hundred activists and supporters, recruited mainly from the Bernie Sanders movement.

DSA comrades have already won influence, including Omaha DSA leader Tom Tilden‘s election to the post of 2nd Associate-chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party.

Now, DSAer Lou Braatz is contesting an open seat on the Lincoln City Council.

Braatz is a veteran of three election campaigns: Patsy Koch Johns, who ran successfully for the state Board of Education; Larry Scherer, an unsuccessful legislative candidate; and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

His platform, mentions nothing of key DSA planks, such as elimination of private businesses, but talks benignly about scheduling more City Council meetings in the evening so “working residents can join in the conversations,” a commitment to mitigating the effects of climate change, support for the city’s park system and for promoting a safe, inclusive environment…

Both local and national Democratic Socialists of America have endorsed Lou Braatz’s run, so he will start the campaign with dozens, if not hundreds of campaign volunteers and no doubt a reasonable amount of both in-state and out-of-state cash.

Local constitutionalists and the Nebraska GOP needs to take this race seriously. They should pump money and people into this race to make sure Marxism gets no foothold in Nebraska.

DSA and other leftists are pushing hard in vulnerable red states like Texas, Georgia and North Carolina. Most conservatives laugh at these efforts, but the left knows that urbanization and demographics are on their side. They have already flipped Colorado and Virginia, and are targeting several southern Red States with truckloads of cash and busloads of hardened union campaigners and starry eyed college kids.

The Electoral College saved America in the last election – but it cuts both ways. DSA and their allies on the left understand that if they can flip either Texas, or a trifecta of Georgia, Florida and North Carolina (real possibilities all), there will never be another Republican president after Donald Trump.


Senator Tim Kaine’s son Linwood Kaine has all kinds of affluenza

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Linwood Kaine

“Affluenza” was a word widely used to describe Ethan Couch, who was 16 when he killed four innocent people in a 2013 drunk driving accident. A cursory Google search on Ethan Couch, the poster boy for the “wealth is evil” narrative turns up “About 528,000 results.”

The son of former Vice Presidential Candidate Senator Tim Kaine’s son Linwood Kaine, on the other hand, appears to already be out of his brief appearance in the news cycle. Linwood, or “Woody,” was clearly not interested in civil debate when he showed up to a  Pro-Trump rally at the Minnesota Capitol rotunda on Saturday afternoon.

Woody, 24, clad in the uniform of the Black Bloc, allegedly participated in a violent “counter protest” where he aggressively fought with police before his arrest for “suspicion of second-degree riot.”

As reported at Pioneer Press:

“Counter protesters — some with apparent anti-fascist and anarchist leanings — clashed with Trump supporters in the Capitol rotunda after they disrupted the permitted event with air horns, whistles and chants. Video of the scene shows a black-clad person wearing ski goggles lobbing the smoke bomb, which allegedly struck a 61-year-old woman.

The chaos was so out-of-control that the “Minnesota State Patrol contacted St. Paul police to assist, reporting that troopers had identified five people who lit off fireworks inside the Capitol…”

The question becomes whether indoor fireworks and smoke bombs are “weapons.” And should Linwood Kaine face charges for resisting arrest?

Linwood Kaine without the mask.

When confronted by the police, the authors write that Kaine “wasn’t about to submit.”

According to the article,

“An officer ordered a man, later identified as Linwood Kaine, to the ground. He refused, [police spokesman Steve] Linders said.

‘The officer was able to get ahold of Mr. Kaine, but he got up, squared off with the officer and the officer tried to take him to the ground again,’ Linders said Wednesday. Another officer arrived and sprayed a chemical irritant toward Kaine.

‘He then was taken to the ground, but continued to resist, at which point another officer deployed a knee strike to get him to cooperate with the officers and put his hands behind his back,’ Linders continued. ‘After the strike, Mr. Kaine cooperated and was taken into custody without further incident.'”

The entire incident was captured on video, according to the article.

Ramsey County Attorney John Choi, who was endorsed by the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party, “declined to file criminal charges as there were insufficient facts to prove felony-level riot,” opting to refer it back to the Minnesota State Patrol “for consideration of misdemeanor-level riot charges.”

WATCH: Fmr AG Loretta Lynch alludes to blood and death on streets; Says rights being ‘rolled back’ (video)

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Loretta Lynch

“…They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again…” – Loretta Lynch, February 28 2017

The official U.S. Senate Democrats Facebook page posted a seriously disturbing video of former attorney general Loretta E. Lynch on February 28, 2017.  The video is less than a minute long, but speaks volumes. Lynch opens with the fear-mongering claim that people are experiencing “great fear and uncertainty.” What is left unsaid, of course, is that the reason for this “great fear” is that Donald Trump was elected as president.

Further and predictably without any specifics, Lynch continues to say that “our rights” are “being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.”

This irresponsible and disgusting allegation hangs there, unspecified.

But even these words are not enough for Loretta Lynch, soon-to-be proud recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal of Law from the University of Virginia. Lynch continues by claiming that “to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers,” people should march, bleed and die. She may not say it outright, but she heavily implies it.

Here is the transcript:

“I know that this is a time of great fear and uncertainty for so many people. I know it’s a time of concern for people, who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.  I know that this is difficult, but I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.

It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.”

Do WHAT again? What rights are being “rolled back”?

The U.S. Senate Democrats introduced the short video on Facebook by saying that it offers “words of inspiration.”
