Trevor Loudon’s 2020 list of 65 communists, socialists and security risks in Congress

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Here’s my long-awaited list of communists, socialists, and security risks in the US House of Representatives.

In my opinion, all of those listed would struggle to pass a low-level background security check.. but guess what? There are no security checks in Congress.

Do you think Hamas, Hezbollah, North Korea, Iran, Russia, China, Cuba, Turkey, or Venezuela might be aware of this massive defect in US national security? Maybe even try to exploit it? Surely not!

Here’s my list of 63 of the most obvious security risks in the House, with links to my website Keywiki for the backup evidence. Apologies to the many I’ve omitted. Please email me at trevor.newzeal @gmail.com if you’d like to be included in next year’s list.

The Revolution Is Now Underway – But Not By Who You Think!

By: Thomas Wigand | New Zeal

In this piece, we will first look at the retirement of “economics” (economic class) as the stated mission of Marxists, and economics replacement by an unstated subterfuge – so-called identity politics.

Then we will examine how the so-called social justice warriors (SJWs) are useful idiot pawns, unwittingly advancing a larger, consummately evil agenda; ironically helping to install the very command and control by a mega-wealthy elite that they claim to despise.  The progenitors of that agenda mostly work off of the radar, for now.  Behind the scenes they are funding the SJWs, thus enabling them to prepare the public battlespace, all the while setting up for a big coming-out party in January 2021.  More on that below.


For years now we’ve heard the term identity politics and how the Progressives-Democrats are using it to cobble-together an electoral majority (we’re all now in forced familiarity with the major categories of “identity” – race; gender; the constantly expanding list of LGBT categories).

In a country founded upon the principle that “all men are created equal, endowed by our Creator,” identity politics as pursued by the Progressives–Democrats is unreconcilable with our founding.  Indeed, we could justly call it subversive.

Henceforth, we will refer to their identity politics as Progressive Apartheid – for it is Balkanizing the country, and doing so by political design.  It does this by selecting certain demographic characteristics (the “identity”), and then conditioning members of the targeted identities to see the world through a manufactured lens.  Once that is achieved, they will have been successfully manipulated to a degree that they will act (e.g., vote) in an intended manner.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, classic economic-based Marxism (“revolution by the proletariat” and such) went out of style: Soviet gulags, Cambodian killing fields and majority poverty (i.e., except for Party officials and other nomenklatura) do not a successful marketing campaign make, not when your goal is to go global.  But the evil force did not disappear.  Instead, Marxism rebranded into so-called social justice (which now emboldened, is increasingly revealing its true nature with the public emergence of Democratic Socialists). Progressive Apartheid is the centerpiece of so-called social justice.

To illustrate this rebranding, consider the “before and after” listing of words and phrases below; the pattern will become self-evident.  As you read think back, and you’ll remember that the Progressive-Marxists often change or add to their menu of words and phrases – this helps keeps the agenda masked while expanding its scope. Also, those words and phrases are often dog whistles – meaning something innocuous, or even desirable to the average person – but having an entirely different meaning to the Marxists.

A perfect example of a Progressive-Marxist dog whistle is the word equity – seemingly out of nowhere it is now embedded within the “diversity and inclusion” slogan that’s been ubiquitous across the media, academia and corporate America for several years now.  “Diversity, equity and inclusion” is now the Progressive-Marxist officially approved phrase.

If your company has not already updated its slogan to add “equity,” it soon will.  In the topsy-turvy world of Progressive-Marxism and its political correctness, “celebrating diversity” requires uniformity in conformity.

[The coordination accompanying the rollout of these dog whistles is a wonder to behold.  It would be fascinating to know who is behind the creation, selection, and then issuance of the marching orders to execute the new word(s) and phrase(s).  And the network through which the orders are disseminated.  It’s almost as if somewhere out there resides a secret, 1984-like Newspeak bureau. Oh, to expose it!  (Are you listening, Project Veritas?)]

Equity as traditionally understood is a perfectly just and desirable concept.  But when one examines how the Marxists are peddling “equity,” it becomes clear that they’re dog-whistling it into a new definition – Marxist “equality of outcome” (rather than equal opportunity).  In other words, universal race and gender quotas (e.g., in educational admissions, hiring, and promotion, income – pay scales, and housing). Oh, and reparations.

Now that your antennae are up, peruse this list (Marxist words and phrases in alphabetical order, followed by the Progressive Apartheid equivalent):

Bourgeoisie (Kulak) = Whites / “White privilege”

Capitalism = systemic racism

Capitalist = White

Comrade = anti-racist / anti-fascist / woke

Dialectic (Marxist) = woke; justice (social justice, environmental justice, racial justice, justice ad nauseum)

False Consciousness = implicit / unconscious bias; non-woke

Fellow Travelers = woke; anti-racist

“Peace, Land and Bread” = “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion”

Petty bourgeoisie = deplorables

Proletariat = Black–Black Lives Matter / Hispanic / LGBT / [illegal] immigrant

Reactionary / counter-revolutionary = racist

“… rule of the bourgeois democrats, from the very first, will carry within it the seeds of its own destruction” = climate change (caused by an “unsustainable” free market economy)

“Workers’ paradise” = sustainable

Workers of the World Unite! = anti-racist / anti-fascist


Marxism rides in on the backs of useful idiots and the desperate, who are fed utopian visions and other lies on their revolutionary journey.  Progressive Apartheid (and so-called climate change) are Marxism rebranded.  Under the banners of social justice and sustainability, the SJW useful idiots are setting the stage for the imposition of a global social justice dystopia (one very much intended to be “sustainable” all right, but not in the way they think).

We could describe this end-game as Corporatist Communism – a hybrid mixture comprising elements of both “classic” Marxist Communism (i.e., its aspirations for control of the entire globe and its population) and “classic” Fascism (i.e., its corporatist “private enterprise” structure, but without its nationalistic or ethnic focus).

Corporatist Communism is visioned to comprise an axis of multinational corporations (e.g., the tech industry), the United Nations and related NGO’s, and central banks – jointly exercising global power (see the reference to Transnational Progressivism below).

In so doing, they would supplant the power and influence nation-states and their elected officials (those may still be allowed to exist for symbolic usefulness, but will be neutered).  If successfully imposed, we would all end up living under a globalists’ totalitarian regime – unelected, unaccountable, and vehemently anti-Christian.

[A quick aside: The very fact that there are “Socialists” and “Democratic Socialists” and “Antifa” and “trained Marxists” (e.g., the founders of “Black Lives Matter”) and “Communists” – openly agitating both in the streets and within the commanding heights of the Democrat Party, for “change” and similarly trite slogans, without opposition from, but with the support of “private capital” – proves that they are quintessential useful idiots serving the interests of the corporate and financial oligarchs.

This explains why the large companies and wealthy individuals and foundations that would rightly consider a pure Communist (or Socialist) revolution as an existential threat, are instead all on-board with Progressive Apartheid and climate change/sustainability.  They are all-in “woke”— financially supporting organizations like Black Lives Matter and Democrat candidates.  This would not be the case if it were not in their financial and power interests.

Those elite interests calculate that by the time the young wokesters realize that they’ve been duped, it’ll be too late; that they’ll end up corralled-in alongside the other “less equal” animals laboring on the globalist Animal Farm.]

This totalitarian model will undoubtedly be portrayed as “democratic.”  The “people” might even be allowed to “vote” for representatives at a supra-national legislative or representative body (e.g., modeled on the European Parliament).  But as with that EU body, its actual role would be symbolic, existing merely to maintain an illusion of “democracy.”  The real high-level decision-making power will reside behind the curtain, and will then be executed by unelected and unaccountable police and regulatory bureaucracy, reminiscent of the Soviet Union’s nomenklatura.

The groundwork for this has been erected over decades: including via the climate change fraud; Cultural Marxism and Progressive Apartheid.   And most recently, Covid-19 and especially the response thereto; this directly from the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset home page:

The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic, and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making … As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models, and the management of a global commons. 

Never let a good crisis go to waste, eh WEF?

Cultural Marxism and climate change and Progressive Apartheid and their ilk are now ascending from laying the groundwork via preparatory deconstruction, into the springboards for the execution of revolution.

Both during the run-up to this “global governance,” and to help maintain power once in place – the world’s population best remains divided.  This renders it easier to manipulate and control. So, a combination of Progressive Apartheid (convincing folks that “your plight is caused by ‘systemic racism’”), and “climate change” (convincing folks of an existential requirement for “sustainability”) will be the propagandists’ primary vehicles of mass deception and control.

Also within the realm of likelihood (if not inevitability), is an intentional redux of the 2008 “financial crisis” – again occurring before the upcoming Presidential election (or at least before the “coming out” discussed further below).

Deception – perception manufacture and management – is critical, for the globalists intend for the masses to have increasingly declining standards of living – even as the elite exponentially grows its wealth.  Between them will be the nomenklatura administrative and policing bureaucracy; its loyalty secured by permitting them to live better than the masses (think the federal bureaucracy in D.C., that is paid and enjoys a lifestyle far better than its private-sector equivalents).

The masses’ neo-feudal condition will be rationalized under U.N. Agenda 2030 fabrications regarding the critical, the existential need for “sustainability.”  Deprivation of real meat to eat, no-longer-affordable personal transportation and so stuffed into public transit, and ever-smaller and denser housing units will be their lot – necessary for the very survival of the planet.   Yet there will be salves to placate them: the bread and circuses of social media and streaming entertainment, and a “universal basic income.”

Space does not permit a complete discussion verifying the totalitarian (and thus dystopian) nature of what is intended by the Corporatist Communists.  Suffice it to say, some quick research into what Agenda 2030 (and Ocasio-Cortez’s effective plagiarizing of it, the “Green New Deal”) would entail if fully implemented, as well as The Great Reset (see below), will be a good start.  Collectivists have always peddled a utopian vision (such as “Peace, Land and Bread” and “Workers’ Paradise” and “Social Justice”), and the globalists’ web sites will be no different.  But once you remove the scales from your eyes, you too will see that the dystopian conclusion is valid.

At present, the Corporatist Communists are not over the finish line.  Prerequisite to establishing this “global governance” regime is the elimination of the United States; for this country as founded stands as an impenetrable roadblock – if for no other reason, if we retain our liberty as embedded in our founding, then we would remain as that “shining city on a hill” contrast to the rest of the world.  The Corporatist Communist elite fully recognizes that the contrast would eventually promote dissension amongst the sustainable serf class in the rest of the world.

For a whole host of reasons, the military conquest of the United States is not a viable path.  No, the people of the United States must be enticed to neuter – to “fundamentally transform” – the country through a revolution against our founding.

Ideally doing so through the ballot box, so as to maintain pretenses of “democracy in action” (useful for deluding the public as to what’s happened to them, and for the perceived legitimacy of that future trans-national elected body). Revolution through the ballot box is not far-fetched; rather, it is a long-established totalitarian methodology:

Few Americans are familiar with a department of human art in which European radicals have specialized for many years — the art of revolution. Revolution through the barricades or by mass proletarian attack upon a regime is no longer thought to be a practical art. Revolution by procedures within the framework of the existing constitutional system has been for many years the accepted technique. There is a considerable literature on this subject which Americans, little concerned with revolution, have ignored. But we know that Mussolini’s reading had been largely devoted to this very literature. The central objective of this type of revolution is to produce confusion. Groups of all sorts unfriendly to the regime must be encouraged and activated whether they are in agreement with the revolutionists or not. They add to the divisions and the sense of hopelessness. Violence is a second arm of action. It intimidates the weak and creates disorder that harries the indifferent citizens. Within this atmosphere of division, intimidation, and disorder it is possible for an audacious and assertive and cocksure minority to force itself into power by quasi-constitutional means after which it can use the parliamentary and constitutional instruments it then controls to work its will upon the whole fabric of the society. The Fascist Party performed this function. – What Is Fascism?, John T. Flynn (2008)

Is the above paragraph not reminiscent of what we are seeing in our streets and cities, and halls of Congress, right now?  Did not “Antifa” and “Black Lives Matter” come to mind as you read that?  They should have!  Alarm bells should have been ringing in your mind, as it also provides an insightful translation of the actual meaning behind Democrats’ recent allusions to a mob-like quid pro quo – that if we elect Joe Biden (or his Democrat replacement), the violent rioting in our streets will end. Also, their serious discussions about eliminating the Senate filibuster, and packing the Supreme Court.

It’s not just Flynn who described the dynamic at play. See also And Not a Shot is Fired (just read the Introduction).

A must-read is John Fonte’s prescient Liberal Democracy vs. Transnational Progressivism: The Future of the Ideological Civil War Within the West from 2002.

Then, go reread the paragraph above from What Is Fascism?

Are scales not falling from your eyes?

Is a revolutionary template not being followed “to the ‘t’”?

The products of our education system that we now see controlling journalism, entertainment, academia, and rioting under Antifa and BLM banners prove that decades of Cultural Marxism and its internal sabotage of culture and institutions as a preparation of the revolutionaries’ battlespace has been completed.

Now, about that coming-out mentioned at the beginning of this piece. It’s being billed as The Great Reset and scheduled for next January by the World Economic Forum (WEF) – the title alone hints at the audacious scope of what is planned (recall Fonte’s “Transnational Progressivism”).  With scales removed from eyes, a quick perusal of who all is involved with this “Great Reset,” and their plans under its banner – read in conjunction with Agenda 2030 – is truly the stuff of “new world order” dystopian nightmares.

The revolution is now underway. 

It is sound speculation that the timing of The Great Reset is deliberately intended to coincide with the inauguration of a President of the United States who is not Donald J. Trump – whether as the result of an honest election or a stolen one.  The Progressives-Democrats, and the power brokers behind them, realize that if they topple Trump, their revolution succeeds.  And if they don’t topple him, the second term of President Trump will cast light upon their schemes, which would prove fatal to their Satanic enterprise.

President Trump is our American fortress under siege, our electoral Fort McHenry.  The stakes in this election – for our country, and for peoples everywhere – are existential.

By the dawn’s early light of November 4th will our star-spangled banner yet wave?

“Choose your side now. Pray now.  And when the time comes, be a counter-revolutionary.  Vote against candidates of globalist tyranny – that is any and all candidates from the Democrat Party.  Vote for the candidate of righteousness, patriotism, and liberty.” – Donald J. Trump.


Parkland Dad: Biden Jeopardizes Kids’ Lives

By: Daniel John Sobieski

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was brutally murdered in the Parkland school massacre put this election in the proper perspective as one between Joe Biden who would pot the safety of our kids and our country at risk for the sake of ideology and political correctness and Donald Trump who would protect both with law and order and armed protection.

Pollack rightly condemned liberal Democratic policies in general for putting the students at Parkland and elsewhere in danger by pursuing social justice and social engineering policies that protected those who would do us harm and not allow us to protect ourselves. It is the same mindset of those who today let felons go free for fear of COVID as our streets are full of burning and looted businesses and our inner cities are littered with bullet-ridden bodies, including infants shot in their car seats and toddlers at grandma’s house, all while defunding police, confiscating our guns, and removing school safety officers added after Parkland. It is the mindset of, Pollack noted on the opening night of the Republican National Convention, Joe Biden, or at least that of his handlers and puppet masters. As the New York Post reported:

In a gripping speech in support of Donald Trump, the father of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollock accused Barack Obama and Joe Biden of “forcing” flawed restorative justice policies into schools, leading to his teen daughter’s 2018 murder.

Speaking at the 2020 Republican National Convention kickoff on Monday evening, Andrew Pollock zeroed in on what he said were “far-left Democrats” in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School district in Parkland, Fla., and praised President Trump for taking action….

“The gunman had threatened to kill his classmates before; he had threatened to rape them; he had threatened to shoot up the school,” Pollack said. “Every red flag you can imagine. But the school didn’t just miss these red flags — they knowingly ignored them.

“Far-left Democrats in our school district made this shooting possible because they implemented something they called ‘restorative justice,’” he continued.

Gunman Nikolas Cruz, 19, slaughtered 14 students and three staffers in the school on Feb. 14, 2018.

“I was just fine with the old approach to discipline and safety — it was called discipline and safety. But the Obama-Biden administration took Parkland’s bad policies and forced them into schools across America,” he said.

Pollack noted Biden still supports and will pursue full implementation of “restorative justice,” whatever that means, at the expense of our safety and that of our children. Indeed, Parkland’s blood is on Joe Biden’s hands. Pollack noted that Biden couldn’t remember Parkland very much, except to falsely claim he was Vice President when it happened.

In yet another memorable competence-questioning gaffe Biden not long ago said survivors of the Parkland school shooting visited him in the White House while he was Vice-President. As Breitbart reported:

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) made another gaffe Saturday, telling reporters in Iowa that Parkland students visited him – while he was vice president – in the aftermath of the school shooting, even though the incident occurred in 2018– over a year after he left office.

Biden brought up the ongoing conversation on gun violence in the U.S. Saturday and told a group of reporters in Iowa that students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School visited him while he was vice president, even though the shooting – which resulted in 17 fatalities and over a dozen injuries – happened on February 14, 2018, over a year after he left the White House.

As bad as the gaffe was, worse yet is the fact that legislation Joe Biden supported made a massacre such as what happened at Parkland possible.

Biden may not remember, but if there is anyone who has blood on his hands because of the shooting at this high school, it is not on the hands of the NRA or deplorable Americans bitterly clinging to the Second Amendment. it is one the hands of the former vice-president who was the sponsor of the legislation that made  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School a gun-free zone and Meadow Pollock and her fellow students sitting ducks for an armed predator:

What’s stopping teachers from bringing guns to work right now? The Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990. Sponsored by then-Sen. Joe Biden and signed into law by then-President George H.W. Bush the law makes it illegal for anyone “to knowingly possess a firearm” within 1,000 feet of a school zone….

Could the Supreme Court overturn the Gun-Free School Zones Act? Maybe. They did it before. Five years after passage, the court declared the law unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause. But Congress amended the bill and President Bill Clinton signed it back into law ins 1996. The Supreme Court has not ruled on the issue ever since.

Perhaps they should. President Trump as a candidate opposed the idea of schools being gun-free zones:

Donald Trump likes the idea of teachers bearing arms in the K-12 classroom. “I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools — you have to,” the Republican nominee told a crowd at a campaign rally in Burlington, Vt., in 2016. “My first day, it gets signed, okay? My first day. There’s no more gun-free zones.”

Biden should learn what the Israelis already know, that the only way to protect our schoolchildren from a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Instead, we irrationally put the onus on guns like the AR15 which, contrary to media and political hype, is not an assault weapon. Assault is a behavior and not a weapon and further restricting the access of law-abiding potential victims from defensive firearms is not the answer.

The fact is that there has been a sharp spike in school shootings since Joe Biden sponsored the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990:

Prior to the Gun-Free Zone Act:

School shootings are preventable. As much as Americans are reluctant to turn their schools into what critics might call armed camps, it would be a better situation than the free-fire zones that exist today. Would allowing guns in school be dangerous? We allow guns in schools right now by not having secure entrances, by not heeding warnings from those who did see something and did say something, or by not having adequate armed security on campus, including armed teachers. When citizens with guns have been nearby, school shootings have been cut short:

Few Americans are aware that in an October 1997 shooting spree at a Pearl, Miss., high school that left two students dead, assistant principal Joel Myrick retrieved a gun from his car and immobilized the shooter until police arrived, preventing further killings.

Or, in another school shooting in January 2002 at the Appalachian School of Law in Virginia, a disgruntled former student killed Law Dean L. Anthony Sutin, associate professor Thomas Blackwell, and a student. Two of the three Virginia law students who overpowered the gunman were armed, preventing further deaths.

Not only would armed security in the schools do more than kumbaya-singing wishful thinking, the mere uncertainty of whether the shooter would face return fire might deter such crimes. Killers love gun-free zones, which is why the shooter at an Aurora Colorado movie theater picked that particular one.

Biden loves gun-free zones, particularly schools, as Andrew Pollack bitterly remembers.

It is Joe Biden who is in a major way responsible for making our schools free-fire zones for armed predators… it is Joe Biden who has Parkland’s blood on his hands.

The Mask is Falling Off Joe Biden

By: Cliff Kincaid

The fascinating Joe Biden book, Yesterday’s Man, is written from the perspective of a socialist doubtful that the career politician can usher in a Marxist utopia. The subtitle, “The Case Against Joe Biden,” reflects the failure of the Bernie Sanders campaign and the fact that the hard-core Marxists are now stuck with Obama’s former vice-president, a convicted plagiarist with brain problems, as their 2020 presidential nominee.

Appearing desperate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that she doesn’t want Biden to debate President Trump. She knows something many people suspect.

The selection of Biden as a front man for the socialist cause reminds people of the old saying, “He’ll do anything for the workers except become one.” His political career has included several episodes of plagiarism, demonstrating that he is incapable of original thought and/or serves as a mouthpiece for others.

It’s incredible, when you think about it, that Biden was picked as Barack Hussein Obama’s running mate in 2008, after Biden had already been drummed out of the 1988 presidential race for plagiarism.

At the time, New York Times reporters Adam Nagourney and Jeff Zeleny reported that Biden “quit the 1988 presidential race in the face of accusations that he had plagiarized part of a speech from Neil Kinnock, the British Labor Party leader at the time” and that “Shortly afterward, he was found to have suffered two aneurysms.”

The plagiarism has gotten some attention, but the failure during the current campaign to explore the impact of his life-threatening brain aneurysms suggests a far more serious and ongoing medical cover-up.

Were the Times reporters trying to imply that his brain problems accounted for the plagiarism? That didn’t make much sense because it was also discovered that Biden had been found guilty of plagiarism in law school. It also came out that Biden had lifted material from a Bobby Kennedy speech.

Last year, when it was possible that Biden might not get the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, there was some attention devoted to the aneurysms. On one occasion, Biden’s eye filled with blood on live television and questions were raised about his health. Now that he’s the nominee, all of those issues, from the perspective of the media, are not relevant. They want to protect him.

But as children take classes and parents and teachers tell them that they are not supposed to cheat in their studies, how do you explain that they should be honest when somebody guilty of plagiarism is the Democratic Party presidential nominee?

Democrats are ignoring all of this because they know or suspect that either Biden will not last long, assuming he wins in November, and will be forced to step down, or will stay in the White House as a figurehead. Pelosi’s comments against presidential debates reflect a growing realization that Biden will embarrass himself before “victory” is achieved.

In the name of the “united front” strategy, their only hope for taking power, communist Angela Davis is telling the Marxists to vote for Biden because he can be moved in their direction. She made these comments on Russia Today (RT) television. Strangely, those who were determined to portray President Trump as a Russian agent found no significance in Davis’s choice of RT as a mouthpiece for her pro-Biden views.

The moral bankruptcy of the Biden “choice,” from their own perspective, reflects the personal nature of Karl Marx, the scoundrel who inspired international movements for socialism and communism. There are two great books available on Marx’s attraction to Satanism The Devil and Karl Marx, by Professor Paul Kengor, and Was Karl Marx a Satanist?, by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand.

For those curious about whether Marx was a Satanist or devil-worshipper, and the jury is still out on this, the repulsive facts about his personal life are enough to make you sick of the father of communism and the movements he inspired. One of the best books about Marx is by Colin Gumbrell and written back in 1983. He notes that Marx, who supposedly wanted to change people’s lives for the better, “was completely incapable of managing” his own affairs. His wife Jenny and her children “were dragged down with him into abject poverty, misery and squalor.” His daughter Eleanor committed suicide in 1898 and her sister Laura killed herself in 1911.

Gumbrell notes that Marx and his family survived on financial support he received from his wealthy associate, Friedrich Engels, first by borrowing and then by an allowance. Except for Engels’s capital (money), “there might have been no Marxism,” notes Gumbrell.

Similarly, Biden is drawing on support, financial and otherwise, from socialist Bernie Sanders and his “movement.” They unveiled a Biden-Sanders “unity platform,” reminiscent of the “united front” strategy historically used by the communists to take power. “The reason I say that I think Biden has a chance to be the most progressive president since FDR is that is exactly what Joe Biden said to me,” Sanders said on PBS. He was basically saying that Biden was doing his bidding.

The term “progressive” also has foreign policy implications. During the 1980s, Sanders collaborated with Soviet and East German “peace committees” to stop President Reagan’s deployment of nuclear missiles in Europe, in order to counter a massive Soviet strategic nuclear advantage. Sanders had openly joined the Soviets’ “nuclear freeze” campaign to undercut Reagan’s military build-up.

The name of Bernie Sanders, a former mayor of Burlington, Vermont, even shows up on a list of speakers at a 1989 communist-front U.S. Peace Council event to “end the Cold War” and “fund human needs.”

Congressional hearings in 1982 demonstrated that the U.S. Peace Council was affiliated with the Soviet-controlled World Peace Council and run by the Communist Party USA. It was part of what the FBI called the Soviet “active measures” apparatus, designed to discredit the U.S. and support communist objectives.

“Bolshevik Bernie,” as analyst Trevor Loudon calls him, spent time on an Israeli kibbutz, or commune, associated with an Israeli political party favorable to the Soviet Union. Members admired Joseph Stalin until his death and celebrated May Day with red flags.

Sanders went on his honeymoon to the former USSR and supported the communist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua.

All of this is fascinating, considering that Nancy Pelosi and other Congressional Democrats claim to be concerned about Soviet/Russian influence in our political process.

Perhaps Pelosi can stand in for Joe Biden in those presidential debates.
