And have been for some time. They have finally acquired many seats of power in our government and are hellbent on destroying everything good in this country. Unfortunately, unless you have spent time in Socialist and Marxist circles, you mostly wouldn’t recognize them. They’re very good at hiding behind good intentions and patriotism.
Trevor Loudon has spent quite a bit of time researching and posting about the Socialists, Marxists and Communists whose agenda is to take over the government and put in place their delusional (and never successful) version of Utopia. He has recently written a book on Obama and his communist and marxist ties: Barack Obama and the Enemies Within.
Now he is posting on those sitting in our Congress with “ties to to one or more of America’s several influential Marxist organizations”.
Loudon starts with Michigan freshman Democratic Congressman Hansen Clarke:
Communists in Congress? (1) Hansen Clarke (D) Michigan
Recently, Florida Rep. Allen West received considerable flak after claiming that there were up to eighty “communists” in the US Congress.
Rep. West was certainly correct in spirit. There are dozens of members of the US Congress who have strong ties to one or more of America’s several influential Marxist organizations.
This is the first of a series of profiles of Congress members with documentable connections to the US hard left.
Hansen Clarke (D) Michigan:
Michigan freshman Democratic Congressman Hansen Clarke represents the state’s 13th District and serves on the Homeland Security and Science, Space and Technology committees.
A former Chief of Staff to Michigan’s pro-Marxist Congressman John Conyers, Hansen Clarke seems to be following in his former mentor’s political footsteps.
Over many years, Congressman Clarke has openly aligned himself with the highly influential Detroit local of the US’ largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America.
Reaffirming a relationship that began several years ago, Congressman Clarke personally presented awards at Greater Detroit DSA’s 12th annual Frederick Douglass-Eugene V. Debs Dinner on October 1st at UAW Local 600 in Dearborn, Michigan.
Clarke presented Congressional citations to far leftist, the Reverend Ed Rowe and to the Restaurant Opportunities Center-Michigan.
Other speakers included an event regular, Metropolitan Detroit AFL-CIO President Saundra Williams and newly appointed DSA National Director Maria Svart.
There are many more and they even have their own caucus: The Congressional Progressive Caucus
What is CPC?
The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) consists of one United States Senator and seventy five members of the United States House of Representatives, and is the largest caucus within the House Democratic Caucus. Established in 1991, the CPC reflects the diversity and strength of the American people and seeks to give voice to the needs and aspirations of all Americans and to build a more just and humane society.
The Co-Chairs of the CPC–U.S. Representatives Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) and Keith Ellison (MN-05) welcome your interest in the caucus.
Our Caucus members promote a strong, progressive agenda, what we call “The Progressive Promise–Fairness for All”. The Progressive Promise is rooted in four core principles that embody national priorities and are consistent with the values, needs and aspirations of all the American people, not just the powerful and the privileged. They reflect a fundamental belief in government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
The four, core principles of the Progressive Promise:
1. Fighting for economic justice and security for all;
2. Protecting and preserving our civil rights and civil liberties;
3. Promoting global peace and security; and
4. Advancing environmental protection and energy independence
The CPC is committed to helping progressives, both inside and outside of Congress, to work together more effectively, in order to bring all of us closer to making good on The Progressive Promise.
Again, we appreciate your interest in the CPC and we look forward to working together to build a strong progressive network throughout America and beyond.
Remember ~ “progressive” is the present hidey/codey word for socialist, communist or marxist…depending on their political leanings. But they all have one thing in common - get rid of our Constitution and the Founder’s exceptional idea of America.
The Progressive Promise
Fairness For All
The Congressional Progressive Caucus believes in government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Our fairness plan is rooted in our core principles. It also embodies national priorities that are consistent with the values, needs, and hopes of all our people, not just the powerful and the privileged. We pledge our unwavering commitment to these legislative priorities and we will not rest until they become law.

» To preserve guaranteed Social Security benefits for all Americans, protect private pensions, and require corporate accountability.

» To export more American products and not more American jobs and demand fair trade.
» To reaffirm freedom of association and enforce the right to organize.
» To ensure working families can live above the poverty line and with dignity by raising and indexing the minimum wage.
2. Protecting and Preserving Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

4. Advancing Environmental Protection & Energy Independence » To free ourselves and our economy from dependence upon imported oil and shift to growing reliance upon renewable energy supplies and technologies, thus creating at least three million new jobs, cleansing our environment, and enhancing our nation’s security.
» To promote environmental justice in affirmation that all people have an inherent right to a healthy environment, clean air, and clean water wherever we live, work, and relax.
» To change incentives in federal tax, procurement, and appropriation policies to:
(A) Speed commercialization of solar, biomass, and wind power generation, while encouraging state and local policy innovation to link clean energy and job creation;
(B) Convert domestic assembly lines to manufacture highly efficient vehicles, enhance global competitiveness of U.S. auto industry, and expand consumer choice;
(C) Increase investment in construction of “green buildings” and more energy-efficient homes and workplaces;
(D) Link higher energy efficiency standards in appliances to consumer and manufacturing incentives that increase demand for new durable goods and increase investment in U.S. factories;
» To eliminate environmental threat posed by global warming and ensuring that America does our part to advance an effective global problem-solving approach.
» To expand energy-efficient transportation choices by increasing investment in synthesized networks, including bicycle, local bus and rail transit, regional high-speed rail and magnetic levitation rail projects.
» To preserve prudent public interest regulations that encourage sustainable growth and investment, ensure energy diversity and system reliability, protect workers and the environment, reward consumer conservation, and support an expanding marketplace that rewards the commercialization of energy-efficient technologies.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? What they don’t post on their site is how they will attain all these lofty goals ~ or how they will pay for all of this. Basically, the bottom line is they will legislate more and more laws and regulations to control every aspect of your life, beating you down until the word “liberty” will be cast into the bin of archaic philosophies.
They will choose what food you eat, what area you can live in, what type of dwelling you’ll live in, where your kids will go to school, what they will learn there, what kind of car you can drive, if they don’t outlaw cars altogether, what you can discuss and where you can discuss it, who you can gather with and where, what healthcare you can receive and where, what kind of work you can do and how much you will be paid, and church? Maybe. Maybe not.
It has already begun and most people don’t even realize just how much of their goal has been attained.
If you love America as it was intended, please watch for further posts from Trevor Loudon and spend some time at his website informing yourself of what is actually going on in this great country of ours. The media is only telling you what the State wants you to know. Fight back with factual knowledge and your vote.
We ARE under attack by people who call themselves American, but are so very far from being such.
