New Jersey –-( On the home page of the Communist Party USA CPUSA) it says “A better and peaceful world is possible—a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA.”

No, it’s not Socialism which is a watered down version of Communism. Real Communism is the kind that was practiced in the former Soviet Union. It can be found in Cuba and North Korea where the state controls all power and property,and the people have none.

Modified versions exist in China, Russia, Venezuela, and other nations where some aspects of Capitalism are maintained for the sake of their economies. In the West Socialism was incorporated by both the U.S. and Great Britain, and other nations via various social welfare programs.

Capitalism is about profits, innovation, entrepreneurship, and investment. It is about the freedom to acquire wealth. It emphasizes work, not welfare. It is the reason America has a dynamic economic system-–when it is permitted to prosper, free from federal interference.

In America, conservatives have always been acutely aware of Communism, but the 47% who still approve of Barack Obama and those who are members of the Democratic Party are the dupes of those whose quest for tyrannical power permits them to tell the most appalling lies, particularly about Republicans.

The Democratic Party is so politically corrupt and devoid of moral standards that it is currently engaged in seeking to harm potential Republican presidential candidates with an utterly bogus indictment of Texas Governor Perry and the slanders leveled against New Jersey Governor Christie. It is a tactic of those who fear a loss at the ballot box.

It is the Democratic Party and its elected officials that have advanced the global warming hoax, now called climate change and the CPUSA website refers to the “Accumulation of greenhouse gases (as) a ‘planetary emergency’” This is what both the President and the Secretary of State are saying, but there has been no warming on a planet that is now 17 years into a cooling cycle.

As for those “greenhouse” gases, nitrogen and oxygen are the most abundant in the atmosphere, followed by nothing more dangerous than water vapor! Carbon dioxide is a very minor gas at 0.04%. And most importantly, the Earth is not a greenhouse. When the Sun's radiation is reduced due to its own natural cycles, it gets colder.

Tied to the climate change message is an agenda that includes Obama’s “war on coal” and his refusal to permit the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from our neighbor Canada, among other measures to restrict access and use of America’s vast energy reserves. This is an attack on the nation’s economy in the name of “nature” or the “environment.”

The CPUSA wants “No new sanctions on Iran” and the administration’s negotiations with Iran to slow or end its nuclear weapons program have dropped some sanctions to get them to the table, but no one believes that Iran will stop because they are openly avowed enemies of America and Israel.

If you wanted to harm America, you would undermine its southern border so that thousands of illegal aliens could join the estimated eleven million already here. That is what President Obama has done and he is joined by former Democratic Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said of the illegals, “We are all Americans.”

No, they are not.

The chair of the Democratic National Committee, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, continues to push for amnesty for illegal aliens saying “It isn’t about politics at all. They (illegal aliens) essentially have become the backbone of the economy.” The Center for Immigration Studies has documented the many jobs that have gone to illegal aliens, leaving native-born and naturalized U.S. citizens with fewer employment opportunities.

In July Gallup reported that “With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation’s southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006. As a result, immigration now virtually ties ‘dissatisfaction with government’ at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country’s top problems.”


The Affordable Patient Care Act—Obamacare—is the perfect example of Socialism in its government control of what once was the world’s finest healthcare system and is being destroyed by a law for which only Democrats in Congress voted.

President Obama has illegally asserted more power than the Constitution grants the executive branch, unilaterally altering Obamacare. It is the reason the House of Representatives is suing him.

For several generations since the last century, Americans have been indoctrinated to accept an ever-growing central government, but even so an August Reason-Rupe survey poll found that fully 54% favored a smaller government providing fewer services. Just 18% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, while 75% disapprove.

Though education is never mentioned in the Constitution, we have a Department of Education and the same applies to the Department of Energy, both created by Jimmy Carter. A Nixon executive order brought about the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency that is masterminding an attack on private property along with the manufacturing, agricultural and energy sectors of the economy.

If one looks at the Democratic Party today, there is often scant difference between it and the self-professed Communist Party USA which twice endorsed the election of Barack Obama, a man whose father was a Communist, whose grandparents who helped raise him were Socialists, and who was mentored in his youth by a card-carrying member of the CPUSA.

We have a President who believes that the problems throughout the world have been caused by America. His disdain for the nation and the military that serves to protect it is on full display. And the Democratic Party twice chose him as its candidate.

If you want to see what Communism looks like, acts and says, watch and listen to the Democratic Party.

    1. You know, I feel like writing a response to this, but then I saw the Obamacare Hammer and Sickle thing, and knew that saying anything other than “This is an echo chamber” would just be a waste of my time.

      Enjoy the little bubble reality you live in folks!

    2. JJ- apparently you didn’t read Mr Carubas brilliant article. Open your eyes, see what is going on. Repubs aren’t too much better than the DNC/CPUSA, but at least it’s a start. Do you understand what the difference between a conservative and a liberal/progressive is?

    3. Obama himself cannot run for President again (2-term limit). In 2016, the presidential election will pit a Republican against a Democrat OTHER THAN Obama. I suppose some anti-Obamaites will call ANY Democrat running for President in 2016 a communist and insist that a Republican be elected that year.

    4. Are we now to assume that whomever the Democratic Party nominates for President in 2016 (and presidential contests after 2016) and whom are people OTHER THAN Barack Obama (who cannot run for President again thanks to the two-term limit) is a vote for a communist or Marxist simply because of their party affiliation (and likewise should vote GOP in presidential elections)?

    5. Interestingly enough over the past 50 years various Democrats in Congress have admitted they were/are members of CPUSA. Whether the current batch is or not (some certainly are)their thinking and actions certainly lean more that way than towards capitalism and individual freedom–and it is that political leaning and thinking that will absolutely kill this country, especially now that they have captured so many people dependent on our tax dollars to support them. We are pretty much on a death spiral or already DOA now and with no way to really correct this–because those dependent on government support–vote…

    6. If the American People would step back and take in the complete BIG picture they would see the multi-prong attack coming from the WH, the Senate, the Courts, the Military Police, the Alpha bit Agencies, the Muslim Brotherhood, the South American Gangs (now in North America), the 800,000 U.N. Troops on American soil, the U.N. Agenda 21, the 36 Muslim Terrorist Training Camps on American soil, all the Military assets purchase by the DHS/Fema/TSA and placed all around our Nation, and on and on it goes! What is happening to our Nation is right out of the Communist Manifesto and Satan’s book (Koran)! This Big picture is so BIG it is almost impossible for individuals to take it all in, let alone believe! But the information is out there for anyone that is willing to do their research. If “We the People” don’t turn back to God/Jesus/Holy Spirit as a Nation we don’t stand a chance against the Evil sweeping over our Nation and the World..!!! Pray, repent, and prepare for what is coming at “We the People” like a Bull*t Train! God help us, PLEASE!

      1. I thing the actual quote is “What the difference between an “brown noser” and an “ass kisser” is “depth perception”. from the 1988 movie “The Couch Trip”…
