Communist Party USA Affirms Loyalty to Beijing

It’s the 1930s all over again. American communists are now treating the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with the same slavish reverence once reserved for Stalin and the mighty Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU).

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA), once shamelessly subservient to the CPSU, has now completely transferred its loyalties to the CCP.

On March 10, a high-level delegation from the CPUSA met with senior CCP officials in Beijing. According to an article on the CPUSA website, the International Department of the CPUSA and the International Commission of the Central Committee of the CCP “held a bilateral meeting to celebrate and discuss the 100th anniversary” of the CCP.

Los Angeles-based Rossana Cambron, national co-chair of the CPUSA, and Houston comrade Alvaro Rodriguez, the party’s international secretary, led the U.S. delegation.

Despite being a small party (estimated 5,000 members), the CPUSA delegation was treated with considerable respect and interest by CCP officials.

Delegate Tony Pecinovsky, a CPUSA organizer and labor historian from St. Louis, gave the CCP officials an overview of 100 years of party history.

Comrade Maicol David Lynch from New York explained to his Chinese hosts that “most young people have a positive attitude toward socialism, especially after the political election campaigns by Bernie Sanders. The CPUSA has attracted a lot of interest from young people and increasing numbers of young people are applying for membership.”

Comrade Zhou, the CCP’s international secretary, recounted a century of U.S.–China relations: “We remember how Americans came to help us during the War of Japanese Aggression, we remember the solidarity that the CPUSA showed the CPC during this time of resistance.”

Comrade Yinchuan, a member of the CCP’s central committee and international commission, boasted about China’s recent eradication of extreme poverty: “Our socialist market economy has lifted millions out of dire poverty, and by 2035, they will have achieved an even higher standard of life.”

The CPUSA also contributed to the Wanshou Forum on Feb. 28, 2019, in Beijing, on the theme of “Building a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind and Development of Socialism in the World.” The address was prepared by Cambron but because of illness, it was delivered by Ohio comrade Aleena Starks.

“Thank you for inviting our Party to participate in learning about the many important developments in your country. I bring greetings from our Party’s National Committee, wishing you all the best in establishing socialism with Chinese characteristics.”

Then, CPUSA Chairman John Bachtell and New York comrade Carol Widom also toured China from May 26 to June 3, 2018, in a visit that included a conference on the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth.

Some CPUSA members work in China promoting the CCP’s propaganda line. Their copy is reminiscent of 1930s Western sycophants and their unabashed praise for Stalinist Russia’s great achievements.

Houston communist Ian Goodrum is a writer and digital editor for China Daily in Beijing.

In October 2018, Goodrum wrote in the CPUSA’s People’s World:

“China and other countries governed by communist parties stand alone in that they have been able to chart their own course and resist imperialist aggression. They have not been subject to the same stringent limitations which keep so much of the developing world languishing in poverty and debt, limitations following the same rules of profit extraction analyzed by Marx in Capital.”

Boston activist Dylan Walker, a member of the Walden Workers Club of the CPUSA, is a graduate student studying international politics at Beijing Language and Culture University.

On Oct. 14 and 15, 2017, comrade Walker and fellow Boston CPUSA member Wadi’h Halabi participated in the 8th World Socialism Forum of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing.

“The theme of the international gathering focused on the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution in Russia and applying lessons from it to an examination of the ‘Temporal Characteristics of the Great Transformation Era, and Socialism with Chinese Characteristics,’” according to the Boston CPUSA,

In the same month, CCP mouthpiece the Global Times released an interview with Walker that, according to the Hong Kong Free Press, was viewed 78,000 times on Chinese video platform Miaopai.

In the interview, Walker says he became inspired by former CCP leader Mao Zedong’s thinking during his first visit to China in 2012:

“I think communism is the most advanced and the ideal social and political system. We just want to make sure everyone can get access to basic welfare and rights. … When I came to China for the first time, I bought versions of the ‘Quotations from Chairman Mao’ in Chinese and English. I read it almost every day after going back to the U.S. I kept it with me during class and I read it when I had time after classes. If I hadn’t learned the quotations, I wouldn’t have joined the Communist Party USA. So, Chairman Mao and the Communist Party of China have a special place in my heart. …

“The CPC now is admirable for me. Especially since President Xi Jinping took office. The corruption crackdown has swept nationwide. … Every time when I browse the website of the People’s Daily and Global Times, I can see such reports almost every day as corrupt officials get arrested. … What’s terrible is that a communist might have doubts towards communism and socialism, and then loses this belief and faith. Just like what President Xi said before, some communist members lack ‘calcium,’ that is lack of belief in communism and Marxism.”

Phoenix communist Rob McElwain reported in an October 2017 Facebook post that Halabi also enjoys a close relationship with the CCP:

“Wahd’i has been a special consultant to the government of China the past dozen years. He travels to meet with high-level personnel from the Communist Party of China to advise them on problems that loom in governing while maintaining the principles of not just Marxism, but the roots of power, the people.”

The March 2021 CPUSA delegation to China committed to working in “the interest of world peace, international solidarity, and cooperation rather than international confrontation.”

What would the CPUSA do if the United States got into a full-scale military confrontation with China?

An advertisement for a CPUSA reading group at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library in Oakland, California, on Dec. 4, 2010, answered the question this way:

“The United States government has been committing direct acts of provocation against China’s economy, and other aspects of its society, including its military. … If these confrontations are allowed to become full-blown, it … will demand from all of us new energies to struggle on yet another—perhaps the biggest—domestic front against U.S. Imperialism.”

In other words, the CPUSA would possibly fight for the CCP on U.S. soil.

If the Biden administration is truly serious about uncovering dangerous internal enemies in this country, it need look no further than the CPUSA.

DSA Marxists Take Control of Nevada Democratic Party

Marxists from Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) have captured the chairmanship and every key executive position in the Nevada Democratic Party.

This gives this country’s largest Marxist party (90,000 members) access to key Democratic Party decision-makers, sensitive party documents, and key donor lists. It will also energize the far left in a key “swing state.”

Despite its protests to the contrary, the DSA is a communist organization. The organization is formally aligned with Communist Party USA, Liberation Road, and the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism—all of which work closely with the Chinese Communist Party against the interests of the United States.

Progressive Slate

The DSA took control of the Nevada Democrats through a five-member “Progressive Slate.”

They were:

  • Chair candidate Judith Whitmer—chair of the Clark County Democratic Party, a former co-chair and co-founder of the “Left Caucus.”
  • First vice-chair candidate Jacob Allen—a DSA comrade from Washoe County who served as Bernie Sanders’s 2020 Northern Nevada political associate.
  • Second vice chair candidate Dr. Zaffar Iqbal—a physician who served as a Bernie 2020 NV co-chair, and founded both Muslims for Bernie and the Muslim Democratic Club.
  • Secretary candidate Ahmad Ade—a “proud Black Muslim” and a lifelong community organizer. Formerly affiliated with the Black Panther Party in Chicago.
  • Treasurer candidate Howard Beckerman—a Carson City-based DSA comrade.

Late in the day, moderate Democrats organized a counter slate to stand against the “Progressive Slate.”

Longtime Democratic functionary Tick Segerblom was encouraged by party moderates to stand for the chairmanship against Whitmer. Ironically, Segerblom, too, is a DSA comrade—albeit one with deeper Democratic Party roots than his opponent.

In a March 6 Facebook post, the Las Vegas DSA boasted:

“And no matter who wins today, the next chair of NV Dems will be a DSA member, and we will continue to push the party to truly represent working people.”

Whitmer beat Segerblom by a comfortable 248 votes to 216.

When the dust had settled, the DSA/Progressive Slate had won all five positions.

Groundwork

The DSA’s takeover of the Nevada Democratic Party took a couple of years to achieve. The DSA has had several hundred members in the Las Vegas area since 2017. A smaller Northern Nevada local was founded in Reno in late 2018. There are many at-large members active around the state, and a couple of student chapters.

Total active DSA membership in Nevada would likely be around 500 comrades, yet they have been able to capture the reins of the most powerful political party in the state.

According to Sam Mellins of The Daily Poster:

“Now DSA members and other progressive organizers are using the organizing tactics and power they built during the Bernie 2020 campaign to try to reshape the Nevada Democratic party into a progressive force.”

In July 2020, “progressives” captured nine of 14 contested seats when the Nevada State Democratic Party elected members to at-large positions on the state party’s executive board.

The Clark County Left Caucus, founded by Whitmer and other DSA comrades, as a vehicle for socialist influence in the Democratic Party, claimed credit for the victory. Whitmer told the Pahrump Valley Times:

“Left Caucus is committed to bringing progressive change to Nevada, through utilizing innovative platforms and approaches to bring in new voices to the Democratic Party.

“Progressives are on our way to bringing real change to Nevada. Our model and approach should serve as a key framework for progressives throughout the U.S. looking to make clear changes and policy reforms within the Democratic Party.”

How many grassroots Democrats in Nevada understand that they’re now voting for a Marxist-controlled party?

Widespread Infiltration

DSA infiltration of the Nevada Democratic Party isn’t an isolated aberration.

The DSA now has five comrades in Congress—Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Danny Davis (D-Ill.), Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.).

Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), chairman of the powerful House Judiciary Committee, have also been members.

The DSA also has well over 100 allied public office-holders in positions across the country, from library and flood control board members to judges and district attorneys.

Currently, six DSA comrades serve on the Chicago City Council and a slate of six more are running for New York City Council this year.

The DSA is involved in some type of “Progressive Caucus” or “Left Caucus” inside the Democratic Party in multiple states, including Hawaii, Washington, Montana, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona, and California.

In California, the DSA is running well over 120 Marxist comrades through the Progressive Delegates Network for California Democratic Party Assembly District delegate spots at the April party convention.

No doubt the comrades will be backing DSA-friendly Delaine Eastin as she challenges incumbent Rusty Hicks for the California Democratic Party chairmanship.

In two or three election cycles, the DSA and its allies may well control the majority of state Democratic parties in the union.

Are Americans ready for a communist-dominated “mainstream” political party?

Opinion: A New Zealander’s 9 ‘Starter Steps’ to Save America From Socialism

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Though I’m a New Zealander, I know America and its people well. I’ve traveled to every state in the Lower 48 and have addressed more than 500 audiences across this amazing nation. My message has always been the same: The United States is heading toward a brutally tyrannical socialist revolution—and if America goes down, every free country follows.

Well, now it’s here, people, unfolding before our very eyes.

So, what can be done? Can the Republic be saved? Honestly, I don’t know.

However, I can suggest some steps that would at least give this country a fighting chance.

1. Face Reality

Millions of Americans are still in complete denial. Many think the military is secretly in control—that it’s only a matter of time until justice is done and President Donald Trump is restored. There’s a “secret plan”—just “have faith.” The truth is that Trump was outmaneuvered by an alliance of communists, globalists, and even traitors in his own party. The “deep state” is now almost fully in control.

Trump isn’t coming back into office any time before 2024—if we still have meaningful elections by then.

To make sure they can never be voted out of office, the Democrats plan to enfranchise 22 million illegal immigrants, abolish the electoral college, gain at least four more far-left senators through Puerto Rican and D.C. statehood, and flood the country with tens of millions more third-world refugees and illegal immigrants. They also plan to nationally introduce voting “reforms,” i.e., mass mail-in balloting, the abolition of ID requirements, etc. that will guarantee eternal Democratic Party control.

If the Democrats can abolish the Senate filibuster and place at least four more leftist “Justices” on the Supreme Court, there’ll be virtually no way to stop any of this if we rely on traditional political methods.

We’re undergoing a Marxist-Leninist revolution driven by China—right now, in real-time.

The military can’t save us, nor can Trump. On the contrary, it’s up to patriots to protect Trump and the Armed Services from unrelenting Democrat/communist attacks.

When enough Americans face the unpleasant truth, then, and only then, can we talk about hope.

2. Stop All Violent Rhetoric

Violence will not save America. The harsh reality is that President Barack Obama had eight years to replace patriotic generals with left-leaning political appointees. He did a great job. If violence breaks out (God forbid) the military will stand with the government, not the insurgents.

Does anyone think Russia and China, and Cuba and North Korea and Iran would stand idly by while their Democrat friends are being defeated by a patriotic uprising? They would undoubtedly use the opportunity to finish off their “main enemy” once and for all.

Beware of anyone inciting violence online, at a public gathering, or in a private meeting. Distance yourself fast. They will be at best hopelessly naive, at worst government provocateurs.

The left is praying for “right-wing” violence. It will give them an excuse for a massive crackdown on patriotic Americans. This country will be saved peacefully or not at all. If significant violence breaks out, it’s over.

Having said that, the Second Amendment must be preserved at all costs. An armed populace is at least some check on tyranny, even if useless in the face of biological warfare or nuclear attack. Americans should keep their guns and work every day to ensure they never have to use them against their own people.

3. Restore Election Integrity in All Red States

If voter trust isn’t restored within months, the Republican Party is doomed. Democrats will continue to vote. Large numbers of Republican voters will stay home. They won’t trust the elections and will refuse to participate. We’ve already seen this play out in the Georgia Senate elections.

Thirty states are currently led by Republican legislatures. Some are already holding inquiries into fixing deficient electoral procedures. Most will be whitewashes unless the public gets heavily involved. If the resulting recommendations don’t include the elimination of electronic voting machines and heavy penalties for organized voter fraud, it’s likely to be a window-dressing exercise. Be alert.

Patriots must work to restore voting integrity first in the red states, then the red counties of the blue states—then after 2022, the whole nation.

Get involved in this process. It’s a top priority.

4. Close the Republican Primaries Immediately

This should be a no-brainer, but no one is talking about it. Only five U.S. states have truly closed Republican primaries. This means that in most states Democrats and Independents (even communists) can vote in Republican primaries—and they do. All over the country, the GOP’s enemies vote in Republican primaries to pick the weakest, most wimpy candidate they can.

That’s why the Republican base is super patriotic but most of their elected representatives in most states vote like “progressive” Democrats.

Close the primaries, Republican patriots. It will transform your party.

5. Organize a Compact of Free States

MAGA folk need to build a “nation within a nation.” This doesn’t mean secession—Russia, and China would be quick to exploit such division. What’s needed is a re-affirmation of 10th Amendment rights as already outlined in the U.S. Constitution. The already out-of-control federal government is about to go on a rampage against every form of independence left in the country. Every red state with the courage to do so must immediately begin working toward a formal compact to collectively oppose all forms of federal overreach.

Such a formal alliance should start with Florida and Texas, then grow by inviting Oklahoma, the Plains states, most of the Southern states, New Hampshire, the free Midwestern states, and the Republican-led Northern and Western states.

Such an alliance, stretching from the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico all the way to the Great Lakes and the Canadian border and even Alaska, would bisect the entire country.

Adding the red counties of the blue states such as Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and California, would create a voting and economic bloc that Washington would find exceedingly difficult to challenge.

When the Biden administration recently suggested that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis close all restaurants in his state to slow the CCP virus pandemic, the governor politely refused—citing the ineffectiveness and horrendous economic consequences of mass lockdowns.

Biden then reportedly hinted at an unconstitutional ban on air and road travel to and from Florida. This threat might work against Florida alone. It wouldn’t work against Florida plus Texas and Oklahoma and 10 to 25 other states.

The United States is technically a federation of free and independent states. It’s time to fully realize that ideal.

Southern states will soon be reeling under a massive new wave of illegal immigration. The federal government will do nothing to prevent it. Texas, Florida, Arizona, and the free counties of New Mexico and California need to be preparing to defend their borders now. This is not an immigration issue that is the Constitutional preserve of the federal government—this is a state public welfare issue.

Of course, the Biden-Harris administration plans to pack the Supreme Court with more left-wing justices to make virtually anything they want “constitutional.” But this shouldn’t even need to go to the courts. State governments already have the power under the 10th Amendment to nullify Federal overreach. They simply have to band together to put Washington back into its constitutionally tiny box.

The Republic will be saved through the courageous application of the First Amendment (free speech) and the 10th Amendment (state sovereignty).

6. Republic Review

Every free state should immediately embark on the adoption of the “Republic Review” process. There’s a small but growing movement in some Western and Northern states to review their engagement with the federal government to eliminate or nullify all unconstitutional relationships.

Under the Constitution, the states are technically superior to the federal government. They’re sovereign under the “equal footing” doctrine and have the legal power to refuse to engage in unconstitutional programs.

For instance, most states only get about 10 percent of their education budget from the feds—but are almost completely subservient to what the Department of Education dictates. Why not forgo the measly 10 percent in exchange for a return to local control over all public education? America is losing its youth in public schools. Every patriotic parent knows that.

This would give parents more control over their children’s education and restore citizen’s control over their own government. Is this worth 10 percent of your state’s education budget?

If the free states are willing to stand against federal government overreach they must also be prepared to forgo unconstitutional federal money.

A thorough Republic Review audit would soon return power to the state legislatures—where it belongs.

7. Form a Multi-State ‘America First’ Popular Alliance

The left has “Our Revolution,” a nationwide alliance of 600 groups operating both inside and outside of the Democratic Party. Operated by Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA, Our Revolution works in the Democratic primaries to elect far-left candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) into office. Our Revolution is not subject to Democratic Party discipline, but it does get to choose Democratic candidates.

We need an “America First” umbrella group to operate both outside and inside the Republican Party—even possibly within the Democratic Party in some areas.

This organization should be all about pushing the MAGA/America First agenda at every level of government, in every state of the union.

Such a movement could harness the energy of 70 million to 80 million Trump voters without being under Republican Party control.

America First could unite the Tea Party and MAGA movements, grassroots Republicans, patriotic Democrats, and Independents to mobilize tens of millions of voters to transform the GOP into the truly populist, patriotic MAGA party it should always have been.

Take that Mitch McConnell!

Trump is already vetting candidates to stand against the Republican congress members and senators who betrayed their own base after the 2020 election.

America Firsters should register Republican by the millions to primary out dozens of Republican sell-outs in 2022. The America First/MAGA movement could “own” every level of the GOP by 2024. The GOP needs the MAGA movement way more than the MAGA movement needs the Republican brand.

Meanwhile, there are almost 70 far-left Democratic congress members in red states. Just restoring voter integrity alone could defeat several of them in 2022.

Running MAGA candidates backed by Trump in every one of those races could flip many more. It would be more than feasible to take back the House in 2022 to make Biden a “lame duck” president.

8. Boycott/Buycott Bigtime

Patriots should be abandoning Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. for more honest platforms. They should also enthusiastically support efforts by DeSantis to heavily fine Big Tech operators who “cancel” patriots. If 25 or 30 free states did the same, “Big Tech” would soon be little tech.

Patriots need to organize nationwide boycotts of unpatriotic companies and buycotts for loyal American companies like My Pillow and Goya Foods.

Already, local groups are drawing up lists of “unfriendly” local companies and friendly alternatives so patriots can stop supporting their opponents and spend more with their fellow MAGA supporters.

It would also be smart to sequentially target vulnerable unpatriotic companies.

Imagine if 80 million MAGA patriots resolved to begin a nationwide boycott of one such company starting now. The boycott would go on indefinitely until the target company was broke, or it apologized for “canceling” patriots. If applicable, every MAGA family could simultaneously commit to buying at least one of the canceled person’s products this year.

On April 1, another disloyal company could be targeted, then another on May 1, another on June 1, etc.

After two or three companies had collapsed or apologized, we would soon see large companies start to back away from the “Cancel Culture.”

Patriots have spending power in this country, people. We need to starve our enemies and feed our friends.

Again, patriots need to build a nation within a nation.

It should be also a given that every American patriot boycotts all communist Chinese goods wherever possible. Check those labels! Buying Chinese communist products in 2021 is like buying Nazi products in 1939. It’s immoral and it’s suicidal.

The Chinese Communist Party just crippled the U.S. economy with the CCP virus. Then, pro-China communists instigated mass Black Lives Matter rioting. Then the same people worked to influence the 2020 election.

It’s about time Americans stop funding their number one enemy—the CCP.

9. Remove Malign Foreign Influence at State Level

DeSantis has unveiled legislation to massively curtail communist Chinese activity in Florida. The legislation also targets several other enemy states including Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela—all of which interfere in this country’s internal affairs.

In December 2020, Trump’s Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed that the Chinese Communist Party was conducting a “massive influence campaign” targeting dozens of members of Congress and their aides, including through attempted blackmail and bribery.

Currently, thousands of foreign companies from hostile regimes are buying up land, food production facilities, technical companies, educational facilities, and infrastructure.

Tens of thousands of foreign agents are co-opting unpatriotic businessmen, unethical politicians, and sympathetic journalists in the interests of China and other malevolent states.

Under the Biden-Harris administration, nothing will be done to stop these activities at a federal level—but much can still be done by the free states.

If every free state cracked down on foreign bribery, corruption. espionage, and subversion, this country would be transformed.

If hundreds of corrupt academics, journalists, businessmen, and politicians (from both parties) were exposed and punished, this country would soon be well on the way to moral, economic, and political recovery.

What Do You Think?

These steps alone will not save America—but I believe they would be a huge step in the right direction. I will be following up with further suggestions and plans. But for now, I’d love to see your comments, suggestions, and criticisms in the comments section.

Thank you for reading. From a grateful Kiwi, God bless America.

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

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

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.
