How Pro-Beijing Communists Almost Stole the Election for Joe Biden—the Old-Fashioned Way

The American public is becoming increasingly aware of evidence of massive computer fraud, out-of-state and dead voters, and truckloads of fake ballots tilting the recent election toward Joe Biden. There are even whispers of Venezuelan, Iranian, and Chinese involvement.

No one, however, is yet talking about the fact that a network run by pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) activists solicited hundreds of thousands of votes for Joe Biden in several key battleground states. Under our very noses, these CCP-backed American communists claim to have defeated their nemesis Donald Trump and won the election for the Biden/Harris ticket.

We know that the CCP wanted Donald Trump defeated. His hard line on trade, his support for the Hong Kong democracy protesters, his upping of the U.S. military budget, and his loyalty to a free Taiwan made President Trump a major roadblock to the CCP’s global ambitions.

It shouldn’t be surprising then that the CCP might be tempted to mobilize its extensive American networks to help defeat Trump at the polls.

This network was led mainly by members of the pro-CCP communist group Liberation Road (formerly known as Freedom Road Socialist Organization), their sister group LeftRoots, and allies in the Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America.

Many of the Liberation Road/LeftRoots members involved are tied to the Chinese Progressive Association of San Francisco (CPA), which has used mass voter registration tactics to dominate Bay Area politics for many years.

Many of the comrades are also heavily involved in Black Lives Matter. Some also have deep ties to CCP operatives in San Francisco.

The network targeted seven key states and mobilized at least 12,000 volunteers. Their voter registration and Get Out The Vote operations probably made the critical difference in several key states—or at least gave Biden enough votes to more easily disguise alleged massive Democratic Party fraud. Several network members have openly claimed credit for winning their respective state for Biden.

Seed the Vote

Formed in 2019, Seed the Vote is a project of Everyday People PAC and is supported by Liberation Road front groups including Bay Resistance, Bay Rising Action, San Francisco Rising Action Fund, and “other organizations and individuals throughout the Bay Area committed to building political power in our communities.”

Known Seed the Vote leaders include:

The CPA has served Beijing’s interests in the Bay Area since 1972.

In a May 22 webinar from the far-left Center for Political Education, Alex Tom of CPA and Seed the Vote boasted of his close relationship with CCP officials in San Francisco. He also admitted to having “various conversations with them about our positioning.” He said working to “get rid of Trump” was a main issue.

Seed the Vote is clearly a CCP-affiliated operation.

Seed the Vote Impact

While a relatively new entity, Seed the Vote has built ties to several already-existing voter registration movements across the nation—all in “swing states.”

The Seed the Vote network includes LUCHA (Living United for Change in Arizona), New Florida MajorityNew Georgia Project, and Pennsylvania Stands Up.

Seed the Vote’s immediate goal is to defeat Trump. The longer-term goal is a socialist United States.

Seed the Vote claims:

“We want to leverage the experience, capacity, and expertise of organizers and activists in California in support of long-term organizing in our neighboring states.

“Our goal is not just to push Trump out of office, but to help shift the balance of power in the states where we are working in favor of communities of color, social justice organizations, and labor. We want to be tactically and politically smart, and move our politics and organizations forward.”

In a recent webinarAdam Gold of Seed the Vote stated: “We were really determined to defeat Trump. We were focusing on seven states this year and it looks like six of those went to Biden.”

Seed the Vote’s claimed successes include operations in several critical states.

In a post-election Zoom conference involving several state organizing groups, Alex Gomez, co-executive director of Arizona’s LUCHA, boasted that her organization was part of a coalition “able to drive 8 million calls … able to knock on over 1 million doors …” to deliver a surprise narrow win for Biden.

Pennsylvania Stands Up is a statewide network of voter registration organizations, including Berks Stands Up, Lehigh Valley Stands Up, Delco Stands Up, Erie Stands Up, and Reclaim Philadelphia. Most of these groups are headed by Liberation Road affiliates or Democratic Socialists of America members.

In May 2020, Reclaim Philadelphia signed on to a letter circulated by several Liberation Road-aligned figures criticizing candidate Biden for a campaign ad that was deemed too critical of China.

In a Nov. 13 Facebook post, Pennsylvania Stands Up claims that their 8,000 volunteers, 6,869,934 calls, 1,803,935 texts, and 400,000 conversations delivered more than 50,000 votes and 14 key counties for Biden.

New Georgia Project eked out a narrow win for Biden with 1,230,000 text messages, 362,000 direct mail pieces, 2,200,000 phone calls, 98,000 conversations, and 371,000 doors knocked.

The New Georgia Project was originally founded by former Georgia state Sen. Stacey Abrams and was led until recently led by Rev. Raphael Warnock, who is now running for U.S. Senate.

Detroit Action is led by Laura Misumi, the daughter of lifelong California Maoist and current LeftRoots member Don Misumi. Her group helped to build big voting numbers in Wayne County, Detroit.

BLOC (Black Leaders Organizing for Communities) is based in Milwaukee. In the post-election Zoom conference, BLOC executive director Angela Lang boasted:

“They’re getting really, really, really close to calling Wisconsin. Biden is up by 20,697 votes and in 2016 Trump carried the state by 22,748 votes. So it’s almost that, that margin is still the same amount roughly but just inverse and that’s due to the work that we’ve done.”

Maoist Models

Seed the Vote’s 2020 effort was modeled on the past successes of Liberation Road front groups, the Carolina Federation in North Carolina, and New Virginia Majority (NVM).

The recently established Carolina Federation unites more-established voter registration groups Durham For All, Down Home NC, Forsyth Freedom Federation, and New Hanover For All. Over the past 4 years, Durham For All has heavily targeted the black communities of the “Bull City” and has elected several sympathizers to the Durham City Council.

Statewide, the Carolina Federation is working to turn both houses of the state legislature blue and is a big part of the reason North Carolina just re-elected a Democratic governor. The Carolina Federation is led by several Liberation Road comrades including Sendolo Diaminah and Aiden Graham.

Founded in 2007 and led by Liberation Road communist Jon Liss, NVM can rightly claim credit for flipping Virginia from red to blue.

In 2018, NVM Co-Chair Tram Nguyen published an op-ed in The New York Times saying, “Democrats could learn a lot from what happened in Virginia.”

According to Nguyen:

“The national Democratic Party spent millions in Virginia this year, but the state wasn’t always such a priority. From its position in the South to its prominent role in America’s legacy of oppression, Virginia was long considered reliably conservative—unbreakable. As recently as six years ago, Republicans controlled the office of the governor and the General Assembly.

“Local organizations like mine understood the political potential of Virginia when we got started 12 years ago. We are winning because we recognize the power of an electorate that includes and reflects the diversity of our state. We don’t talk to voters only when campaign season rolls around. We try to reach voters of all colors, women, low-income workers and young people where they are, which has made it possible for us to develop a robust base of support along Virginia’s so-called Urban Crescent, from Northern Virginia to Hampton Roads. Long before Election Day, we registered more than 300,000 voters, knocked on more than 2.5 million doors, and organized within communities of color to help win significant policy changes like Medicaid expansion, which covered nearly 400,000 people.”

This is all, of course, entirely legal. However, any Chinese involvement in this project would be a very different matter.

Steve McClure is a former Washington resident who has close ties to Liberation Road and NVM. Since 2010, he has worked with the Geography Department of Wuhan University in China and is a research associate with the State Key Laboratory of Engineering Information in Surveying, Mapping, and Remote Sensing at the university.

For more than a decade, comrade McClure has used his skills in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping to supply highly targeted voter identification information to NVM.

According to an Aug. 25, 2011, post on McClure’s blog:

“I have been recently working with New Virginia Majority to make a series of maps to inform planning for precinct walks in Virginia State house districts. … The core data are lists of individual households by pan-ethnic census categories. … The results are subjective but do suggest … the ways that actual communities conform or diverge from the discrete territorial units which define an electoral terrain in a democracy.”

All this wasn’t theoretical. It was designed to help NVM flip districts across the state by micro-targeting potential Democratic voters in low-income and minority communities.

In another post, McClure wrote:

“In the general elections of 2008, Virginia voted Democratic for the first time since 1964 with Obama carrying the state. Demographic shifts and increased voter participation rather than a shift in political allegiances account for this outcome. …

“Focusing on Prince William County, Virginia, I applied spatial interpolation techniques in a GIS to translate the 2008 election returns from the geography of precincts to year 2000 zoning classification areas for further quantitative analysis. The goal was to produce actionable intelligence for working-class organizations building popular power at the base. …”

Is it legal for an American citizen, working out of a Chinese university, presumably paid a Chinese salary, to attempt to influence U.S. elections?

For three years we’ve heard repeatedly about Russian interference in U.S. elections.

However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been influencing U.S. elections for at least a decade with zero outcry. This is not high-tech vote fraud. This is being done “legally” the old-fashioned way with mass voter registration and Get Out the Vote. The activity per se is legal. The CCP influence, though, may well be highly illegal.

This CCP influence in the United States needs to be stopped, and any law-breaking involved needs to be punished to the fullest extent the law allows.

Why should we allow a criminal regime to interfere in American elections?

Trevor Loudon: China Tied to Election Push; the Global Socialist Agenda

By: Joshua Philipp | Crossroads

As the United States and the world wait for the final results of the 2020 elections, the evidence is demonstrating numerous cases of fraud and irregularities that are calling into question the integrity of the U.S. Electoral System. Yet beyond this, many of the radical groups that have been involved with activities around the election have deep ties to the Chinese government. To learn more about this, and the broader agenda behind these groups, we spoke with author, filmmaker, and Epoch Times contributor Trevor Loudon.

Why Is No One (Except the President) Calling Out Kamala Harris’ Communist Ties?

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

On Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” on Oct. 8, President Donald Trump described Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) as a “communist; she’s left of Bernie!” The president went on to cite Sen. Harris’ views, which are indeed even more extreme than Senators Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) or Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA).

But there’s much more compelling evidence to indicate that, yes, Kamala Harris may indeed be communist.

Communist Parents

Harris’ parents, her mother Shyamala Gopalan, an Indian cancer researcher, and Donald Harris, a Jamaican economist, were both hard-core leftists.

In the early 1960s, the couple was active in the Berkeley-based Afro-American Association.

According to one former member, Aubrey LaBrie, “Fidel Castro and Che Guevara were the heroes of some of us. … We would talk about Black Muslims, the liberation movements going on in Africa, everything.”

The group’s leader Donald Warden mentored two young Afro-American Association members Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, who would go on to found the Black Panther Party in 1966. The Panthers followed a Maoist philosophy and supported communist China. They serve as a model for today’s Black Lives Matter movement.

Years later, Warden (by then known as Khalid al-Mansour) would play a role in helping Barack Obama get into Harvard Law School.

In 1975, Donald Harris was recruited to the Stanford University economics department as an open Marxist.

Pro-Communist Boyfriend

After playing at student radical at Howard University, Kamala Harris returned to the Bay Area to launch her legal career. Thirty-year-old Harris formed an eyebrow-raising romantic relationship with then 60-year-old Willie Brown, a leading California Democrat, soon to become mayor of San Francisco.

Brown helped Harris’ career and steered her into a couple of board positions that paid her about $400,000 over 5 years, according to the San Francisco Weekly.

Brown was a long-time communist sympathizer. He was first elected to public office with the help of the Communist Party USA youth wing. He was funded by Dr. Carlton Goodlett, a communist newspaper owner once awarded the Lenin Prize by the government of the former Soviet Union.

Several years after his affair with Harris, Brown was still openly sponsoring Communist Party fundraisers in the Bay Area while serving as San Francisco mayor.

Today, Brown is widely regarded as one of the Chinese Communist Party’s best friends in the Bay Area.

Communist-Affiliated Protégé

While serving as San Francisco district attorney, Harris mentored a young San Francisco activist named Lateefah Simon. After hiring her and helping Simon get through college, Harris introduced her young friend to many influential San Franciscans. Today, Simon serves as president of the leftist Akonadi Foundation and chairs the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) board.

When Harris first met Simon, the younger woman was serving on the board of directors of the Oakland-based Youth Empowerment Center. Every single other board member—Harmony Goldberg, Adam Gold, Cindy Wiesner, and future Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones—were members of the Maoist communist group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM).

Gold is today a member of LeftRoots, an affiliate group of America’s main pro-China communist party Liberation Road.

Simon is best friends with another LeftRoots member, Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza.

Harris openly supports Black Lives Matter and is still close to Simon and Garza. In turn, Garza is a long-time friend and associate of LeftRoots comrade Alex Tom—a man with close ties to the radical Chinese Progressive Association and the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco.

Communist Financial Benefactor

Harris’ sister Maya Harris was a student activist at Stanford University. She was a friend of Steve Phillips, one of the leading Marxist-Leninists on campus and a long-time affiliate of a pro-China group League of Revolutionary Struggle.

According to Phillips’ blog “Political Intelligence”:

“First, let me make clear that I come out of the Left. I’ve studied Marx, Mao, and Lenin. In college, I organized solidarity efforts for freedom struggles in South Africa and Nicaragua, and I palled around with folks who considered themselves communists and revolutionaries …, and I did my research paper on the Black Panther Party.”

After leaving Stanford in the early 1990s, Phillips led many of his comrades into the Democratic Party. He also married into the multi-billion Sandler family Golden West savings and loan fortune, which enabled the young revolutionary to buy himself considerable political influence.

Sandler money has funded the Center for American Progress, ProPublica, and multiple candidates and ballot initiatives around the country. In 2008, Phillips spent $10 million through his PowerPAC-plus on voter registration drives in Southern and South Western states that got his friend Barack Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

In 2013, Phillips helped elect his old Stanford friend Cory Booker to the U.S. Senate from New Jersey. In 2018, he almost made his proteges Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum the governors of Georgia and Florida, respectively.

Phillips is a friend of the Harris family and helped Maya Harris’ husband Tony West become associate attorney general in the Obama administration. He has also been a major sponsor of Kamala Harris’ political career.

In 2003, Phillips helped elect Harris as the San Francisco district attorney. Ironically, she beat incumbent Terence Hallinan, who as a young communist helped Willie Brown win his first election.

Phillips’ PowerPAC-plus helped elect Harris as California attorney general in 2010 and then to the U.S. Senate in 2016.

Pro-Communist Chief of Staff

In the early 2000s, Harris’ current Chief of Staff, Karine Jean-Pierre was active with the New York-based Haiti Support Network. The organization worked closely with the pro-China/North Korea Workers World Party and supported Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the far-left former president of Haiti, and his radical Lavalas moment.

In April 2004, at the Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College, 2,000 gathered to hear a program entitled “An Evening with Friends of Haiti: The Truth Behind the Haiti Coup.”

The rally was co-chaired by Jean-Pierre and Kim Ives of the Haiti Support Network, along with Pat Chin and Sara Flounders from the Workers World Party.

In May 2004, Jean-Pierre joined a delegation to Haiti with two well-known Workers World Party comrades Steve Gillis and LeiLani Dowell.

Around the same time, Jean-Pierre worked for China-friendly New York City Council member James Sanders. Her duties as part of his reelection campaign included working with the local branch of the much discredited “community organizing” group ACORN.

Communist-Affiliated Husband

Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff works for the law firm DLA Piper, which “boasts nearly 30 years of experience in China and over 140 lawyers dedicated to its ‘China Investment Services’ branch,” according to the National Pulse.

Writes the National Pulse:

“To facilitate DLA Piper’s China practice—which has received countless prestigious awards from the China Business Law Journal and China Law and Practice—the company employs a host of former Chinese Communist Party officials.

“Ernest Yang, who serves as the firm’s Head of Litigation & Regulatory department and Co-Head of International Arbitration, was appointed to the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in 2013. The CPPCC serves as the top advisory board for the Chinese Communist Party, and Yang was promoted to the body’s Standing Committee in 2019.

“Jessica Zhao, a Senior Advisor, served as the Deputy Secretary-General of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC), a government-owned body established by the Chinese Communist Party in 1956. It was developed under the auspices of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, ‘a governmental body for the furtherance of Chinese trade promotion.’”

Several other high-level DLA Piper employees, both Chinese and American nationals, have served the Chinese regime in some capacity or another.

Emhoff took a leave of absence from the firm in August, the New York Times reported.

Background Check Anyone?

If Biden is elected president, Harris will be one heartbeat or a few brain cells away from the top job.

If Harris was to apply for a mid-level job in the Department of Agriculture, she would almost certainly fail the security background check. She owes her entire career to sympathizers or active enablers of the Chinese Communist Party.

Fortunately for her (and potentially disastrous for the country), elected officeholders are not subject to the security clearance process.

President Trump has said that “If Joe Biden ever got elected, China will own America.”

Biden picked the ideal running mate to help out.
