Left-wing Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner is accusing President Donald Trump of “personally” inviting Russian president Vladimir Putin to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, suggesting it was an act of treason.

“In 2016, on national TV, Trump asked Russia to attack our Democracy,” Reiner wrote on Twitter Friday morning. “Today, on worldwide TV he personally gave Putin the ok to do it again. If I’m not mistaken, Treason is listed in our Constitution as a high crime. WTF!”

In 2016, on national TV, Trump asked Russia to attack our Democracy. Today, on worldwide TV he personally gave Putin the ok to do it again. If I’m not mistaken, Treason is listed in our Constitution as a high crime. WTF!

9,185 people are talking about this

Earlier Friday, President Trump joked with Putin about Russian meddling in U.S. election as the pair of world leaders met at the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan.
The quip was prompted by a reporter who asked President Trump if he planned to warn Russia against involving itself in the next election.
“Yes, of course, I will,” Trump responded as he turned and pointed to the Russian delegation. “Don’t meddle in the election, President. Don’t meddle in the election.”
Putin did not reply to the question.
Their meeting was the first since special counsel Robert Mueller completed his investigation into now-debunked collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
Democrats on Capitol Hill, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), criticized President Trump’s quip, echoing remarks made by Reiner.
“President @realDonaldTrump is joking with Putin about interfering in our elections, but the joke is on us and Putin’s the only one laughing President Trump is basically giving Putin a green light to interfere in 2020,” Schumer tweeted.
Reiner’s latest tirade isn’t the first time he has accused Russia of attacking the U.S.
In July 2017, the All in the Family star claimed Russia “invaded” the U.S. following a meeting between President Trump and Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
“Russia has invaded US & continues to try to undermine our democracy,” he said at the time. “DT (Donald Trump) refuses to protect us. Don’t let a weak ignorant liar sell us out.”
Reiner, one of Hollywood’s most outspoken Trump critics, has repeatedly called for the president’s impeachment, citing the Mueller report’s findings and business activities prior to assuming office.
The director has previously called the president the “enemy of the people” and a “sick delusional criminal fuck.” In April, Reiner endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential run, predicting the frontrunner will “restore our souls and standing as leader of the free world.”

Barack Obama: A Lifelong Story of Russian Collusion

Several U.S. presidents have genuinely colluded with Russia or the former Soviet Union, but none more so the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama. It’s no exaggeration to say that Obama owes his entire career to Russian collusion.
In March 2012, President Obama made his famous “off mic” remarks to then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” Medvedev replied, “I understand. I transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Was this some innocent remark, or was it just as it seems: a friend passing a message to a friend?
Obama has surrounded himself with pro-Moscow “friends” all his life. Why should he desert his friends just because he was president of the United States?
Just after Obama’s election to the presidency on Nov. 15, 2008, Sam Webb, then-chairman of the still pro-Moscow Communist Party USA, told his party comrades: “The left can and should advance its own views and disagree with the Obama administration without being disagreeable. Its tone should be respectful. We are speaking to a friend.”
A lifelong friend.

Frank Marshall Davis

The young Obama, when he was 10 or 11 years old, was introduced to the Hawaii-based poet Frank Marshall Davis by his maternal grandfather. Obama maintained a relationship with the septuagenarian Davis until he left Hawaii for Occidental College in Los Angeles at the age of 18.
Davis had joined the Communist Party USA in Chicago by 1943, at the latest. He was militantly pro-Soviet, writing poems in praise of both Stalin and the Red Army.
In 1948, Davis and his communist wife moved to Hawaii. According to Davis’s autobiography, he was recommended to the Hawaiian comrades by secret Communist Party USA members Paul Robeson and Harry Bridges of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union.
Before going underground in 1950, the Hawaiian Communist Party was one of the most dynamic in the United States at the time. The mainland put huge resources into the Hawaiian Communist Party because the Soviets wanted the U.S. military presence on the islands shut down. The Hawaiian communists were charged with agitating against the U.S. military bases at every opportunity.
FBI documents refer to information that Davis “was observed photographing large sections of the [Hawaii] coastline with a camera containing a telescopic lens.” The FBI information states: “Informant stated that DAVIS spent much of his time in this activity. He said this was the third different occasion DAVIS had been observed photographing shorelines and beachfronts. Informant advised that it did not appear he was photographing any particular objects.”
The FBI clearly suspected military espionage. Davis was placed on the “Security Index,” which meant he was marked for immediate arrest should war break out between the United States and the Soviet Union.

Alice Palmer

Long-serving Illinois state Sen. Alice Palmer provided Obama’s entrée into electoral politics. Obama was Palmer’s chief of staff when she ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 1994, then he took over her state Senate seat in 1996.
Palmer was a pro-Soviet propagandist.
In 1983, Palmer traveled to Czechoslovakia to the Soviet-controlled World Peace Council’s Prague Assembly. At the time, she served on the executive board of the Communist Party USA-dominated U.S. Peace Council.
In 1985, Palmer was part of a delegation of 16 African-American journalists to the Soviet Union, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia. Palmer represented her own Chicago-based “Black Press Institute,” which was essentially a vehicle for disseminating Soviet propaganda to America’s black population.
The trip was organized by Don Rojas, then executive of the International Organization of Journalists (IOJ), in conjunction with the Black Press Institute, the National Alliance of Black Journalists, and the National Newspaper Publishers Association—the United States’ largest organization of owners of black newspapers.
American-educated Rojas was the former press secretary to Grenada’s late communist leader, Maurice Bishop.
Palmer told the Communist Party USA’s People’s Daily World:
“The trip was extraordinary because we were able to sit down with our counterparts and with the seats of power in three major capitals—Prague, Berlin and Moscow. We visited with foreign ministers, we talked with the editors of the major newspapers in these three cities. …
“It was a very unusual trip because we were given access. … Every effort was made to give us as much as we asked for. … We came back feeling that we could speak very well about the interest of the socialist countries in promoting peace.”
In March 1986, Palmer covered the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) Congress in Moscow for the Black Press Institute.
In June 1986, the People’s Daily World published a Black Press Institute article by Palmer on the CPSU conference, entitled “An Afro-American Journalist in the USSR.” The article praised Soviet “central planning” and included such statements as:
“We Americans can be misled by the major media. We’re being told the Soviets are striving to achieve a comparatively low standard of living compared with ours, but actually they have reached a basic stability in meeting their needs and are now planning to double their production.”
Palmer was elected IOJ vice president for North America at the organization’s 10th Congress, held from Oct. 20–23, 1986, in Prague. She also traveled to the Soviet Union and Bulgaria during the same trip. Palmer’s duties were to include coordinating the activities of IOJ chapters in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
The IOJ was a Soviet front operation based in Prague, until its expulsion by the Czech government in 1995.

David Axelrod

A longtime friend of Obama, David Axelrod, led Obama’s 2008 and 2012 election campaigns and served as a senior adviser to the president.
In the 1940s, Axelrod’s mother, Myril Axelrod, wrote for the left-leaning New York magazine “PM.” Though not officially a communist publication, several Communist Party USA members worked on the paper.
PM’s Washington correspondent, I.F. Stone, was later identified as a Communist Party USA member and a Soviet intelligence agent.
One of PM’s writers, Earl Conrad, also wrote for the leftist magazine Negro Story, as did Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.
While studying in Chicago, Axelrod was mentored by longtime Chicago journalist and activist David Canter.
Canter spent his childhood in the Soviet Union where his father, Harry Canter, former secretary of the Boston Communist Party, translated Lenin’s works from Russian into English. This work earned Harry Canter an audience with Stalin in 1932. After World War II, Harry Canter settled his family in Chicago, where he took over a radical paper called the Chicago Star—for sale because its owner, Frank Marshall Davis, was moving to Hawaii.
David Canter joined the Communist Party USA and would later become an associate of Obama.
By 1960, David Canter had teamed up with well-known Chicago Communist Party USA member LeRoy Wolins. The duo owned a company called Translation World Publishers, which specialized in publications from and about the Soviet Union. The company soon attracted the attention of the House Un-American Activities Committee, which suspected Canter and Wolins of being conduits for Soviet propaganda.
In a report prepared by the House Committee on Un-American Activities in May and July 1962, entitled “Communist Outlets for the Distribution of Soviet Propaganda in the United States,” David Canter was heavily quizzed about payments his company received from the Soviet Union.
After the U.S. government demanded that Translation World Publishers register as the agent of a foreign power, Canter de-registered the company.
The committee went on to find that:
“Translation World Publishers was an outlet for the distribution of Soviet propaganda … this publishing house was subsidized by Soviet funds and was created by known Communists to serve the propaganda interests of the U.S.S.R.”
In 1963/64, the Soviet Union actively tried to undermine Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, in favor of Democrat Lyndon Johnson.
In their 1989 book, “The KGB Against the Main Enemy—How the Soviet Intelligence Service Operates Against the United States,” the United States’ premier communist researcher, Herbert Romerstein, and former KGB officer Stanislav Levchenko examined Soviet attempts to blacken Goldwater’s name and other Soviet campaigns of the time:
“The false charge that Goldwater was a racist was only one of the smear campaigns used against his candidacy by the Soviets and their surrogates. The American Communists covertly assisted in this ‘active measures’ campaign.
“A 1963 booklet claimed that Goldwater was conspiring with the John Birch Society to organize a ‘putsch,’ or violent insurrection, to take over the United States in 1964. The booklet, ‘Birch Putsch Plans for 1964,’ contained no address for the publisher, Domino Publications. The author used the not-very imaginative pseudonym, ‘John Smith, as told to Stanhope T. McReady.’ There was nothing to tie this publication to the communists until an ad for the book appeared in the pro-communist National Guardian for April 25, 1963, listing the publisher as ‘Domino Publications, Suite 900, 22 West Madison Street, Chicago, Illinois.’
“This was in fact the address of Translation World Publishers, which was registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act as an agent of the Soviet Union. The co-owners, LeRoy Wolins and David S. Canter, were identified by the House Committee on Un-American Activities as members of the Communist Party USA.”
Axelrod’s mentor was a Soviet-funded professional “black propagandist.” Axelrod used similar smear tactics to help Obama win a U.S. Senate seat in 2006 and the presidency in 2008 and 2012.

Valerie Jarrett

The “other half of Obama’s brain,” Valerie Jarrett was a longtime Obama family friend and the president’s closest adviser through his entire eight years in the White House.
FBI documents show that Jarrett’s maternal grandfather, Chicago businessman and Housing Authority Chairman Robert Taylor, was “in contact” with alleged Soviet spy Alfred Stern “on a number of occasions.” At one point, the pair were actually in business together. Under investigation by the FBI, Stern fled the country in the late 1950s through Mexico to the Soviet Union before settling in Czechoslovakia.
Jarrett’s father, James Bowman, was also accused of associating with Stern.
FBI files also reveal, “Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical Students,” according to Judicial Watch.
Another document in the files was a note from J. Edgar Hoover to FBI officials in Denver instructing them to investigate “James Edward Bowman” for his connections to other suspects.
The Judicial Watch report explained, “According to Bowman’s government file, the Association of Internes and Medical Students is an organization that ‘has long been a faithful follower of the Communist Party line’ and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in Washington, D.C., and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with fellow Communists.”
Jarrett’s father-in-law, prominent Chicago journalist Vernon Jarrett, was a leader of the Communist Party USA youth wing, American Youth for Democracy, in 1946.
In early 1948, the communist-controlled Packinghouse Workers went on strike in Chicago. Vernon Jarrett served on the publicity committee of the communist-run “Citizens’ Committee to Aid Packing-House Workers,” alongside none other than fellow journalist and comrade Frank Marshall Davis.
Vernon Jarrett was also a fan of Obama. He watched his career from its early stages and became an influential supporter.
In 1992, Obama worked for the ACORN offshoot Project Vote to register black voters in aid of the Senate campaign of Carol Moseley Braun, who also had strong Communist Party USA ties.
Obama helped Moseley Braun win her Senate seat, then took it over himself in 2004, backed by the same communist/socialist alliance that had backed Moseley Braun.
Commenting on the 1992 race, Vernon Jarrett wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times on Aug. 11, 1992:
“Good news! Good news! Project Vote, a collectivity of 10 church-based community organizations dedicated to black voter registration, is off and running. Project Vote is increasing its rolls at a 7,000-per-week clip. … If Project Vote is to reach its goal of registering 150,000 out of an estimated 400,000 unregistered blacks statewide, ‘it must average 10,000 rather than 7,000 every week,’ says Barack Obama, the program’s executive director.”

Council for a Livable World

Established in 1962 by former Hungarian communist sympathizer and alleged Soviet spy Leo Szilard, the Washington-based Council for a Livable World (CLW) has done huge damage to the U.S. military—all to the benefit of Moscow.
The CLW’s modus operandi is to fund leftist senators and congressmembers, then lobby them hard for defense cuts and disadvantageous arms reduction treaties with the Soviet Union/Russia.
The CLW claims to have had an early influence on both Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden.
“Council for a Liveable World has a history of helping to elect new candidates who can make a difference in the Senate, such as a little-known state senator from Illinois named Barack Obama and a 29-year-old Joe Biden in his first statewide contest,” the CLW wrote in 2012.
The CLW helped fund Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate race. Obama has also been pictured (circa mid-1990s) alongside longtime CLW leader Massachusetts-based socialist Jerome Grossman.
CLW Executive Director John Isaacs wrote in Grossman’s eulogy: “Now, as an aside, we have a dictum at Council for a Livable World. If we support a candidate in his or her first major political contest, he or she will always remember who was with them at the beginning. That has been true with such political figures—(he says modestly)—as President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden.”
In October 2007, the CLW praised Sen. Obama “for his pledge to pursue a world without nuclear weapons and to improve U.S.–Russian relations.”
At a speech at DePaul University, Obama stated: “Here’s what I’ll say as president: America seeks a world in which there are no nuclear weapons. … We’ll work with Russia to take U.S. and Russian ballistic missiles off hair-trigger alert, and to dramatically reduce the stockpiles of our nuclear weapons and material.”
As the Soviet Union/Russia has cheated on every single arms-reduction treaty with the United States, Obama was effectively proposing unilateral U.S. disarmament.
Former Sen. Gary Hart, then chairman of the CLW, applauded Obama’s pledge.
“By placing the issue of the elimination of nuclear arsenals at the center of his foreign policy, Sen. Barack Obama has performed a great public service and deserves attention and respect from all those who see this issue as crucial to our times and who have been watching and waiting for strong leadership and courage,” Hart said in a statement.
In June 2013, President Obama used a speech in Berlin to outline plans for further reductions in the U.S. nuclear arsenal “if Russia agrees to pare back its weapons at the same time.”
According to the New York Times:
“Resuming a drive toward disarmament that he had largely shunted aside over the past two years, Mr. Obama will propose trimming the number of strategic warheads that each of the two big nuclear powers still maintains by up to a third, taking them below the 1,550 permitted in the treaty he signed with Russia in his first term, a senior administration official said. That would leave each country with just over 1,000 weapons.
“Mr. Obama will also declare that he will work with NATO allies to develop proposals for major cuts in tactical nuclear weapons, which are not covered by the existing treaty. Russia, which has far more tactical nuclear weapons deployed than the United States and Europe do, has firmly resisted such cuts. There are fears that its tactical weapons are in parts of Russia where they risk being seized by terrorist groups.
“Mr. Obama will also announce that he will host a final nuclear security summit meeting in the United States just before he leaves office. …
“’The most important thing he could do is lay out the broad agenda for the next three and a half years,’ said John Isaacs, executive director of the Council for a Livable World, an advocacy group.
“In addition to further reductions, Mr. Isaacs said, there are several policy changes Mr. Obama could take that would move the country further away from cold war-style national security. He said the president could take nuclear weapons off high alert and change nuclear doctrine to say that the only purpose of such weapons would be as a deterrent.”
Under the Obama administration, while America disarmed, Moscow pulled well ahead of the United States in virtually every realm of nuclear and conventional weaponry.
The situation has gotten so bad that President Donald Trump had to unilaterally withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (which Russia has continually cheated on) in order to give the U.S. military some chance of catching up to Moscow.

How Many Russian Agents Do You Know?

Most Americans don’t personally know any Russian agents. Most Americans aren’t surrounded by friends and advisers who know Russian agents.
Obama has been surrounded by pro-Moscow communists and probable Soviet agents his entire life. Several of his political enablers also have Soviet/Russian connections.
How unlucky can one guy get?
Obama’s economic, social, and military policies damaged the United States in a myriad of ways. Many of his military and foreign policies also directly or indirectly benefited Moscow.
Despite a lifetime of radical associations, Obama never had to undergo any form of a security background check to serve in the Illinois State Senate, U.S. Senate, or the White House. It’s highly unlikely he could have passed a security check to drive a school bus, let alone serve as the leader of the Free World.
Imagine what a two-year, multimillion-dollar, taxpayer-funded investigation into Obama’s Russian ties might uncover.
If Obama was a fully recruited agent of Moscow, tasked with giving Russia a significant military advantage over the United States, and economically weakening and socially dividing the nation, how would he have conducted his presidency (or his post-presidency) any differently?

Democrats Allow Communists to Infiltrate Their Party Across the Nation

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is infiltrating the Democratic Partyacross the country. Communists, some openly, some secretly, are working in Democratic campaigns, holding Democratic Party leadership positions, and even running for public office on the Democratic Party ballot line.
They also are pushing their policies inside the Democratic Party, to the point where it’s almost impossible to distinguish between the CPUSA and Democratic Party programs. Many comrades work closely with influential congressmembers or U.S. senators.
The CPUSA supports China, Cuba, Venezuela, and the Russian Communist Party—all enemies of the United States. The CPUSA still advocates for the “overthrow of the capitalist class” in the United States, yet the Democrats do absolutely zilch to keep the communists out of their party.
CPUSA infiltration of the Democratic Party is widespread—it affects every region where the communists have a significant presence.

Support and Infiltration

In the San Diego area, two CPUSA members, Carl Wood and Emiliana Sparaco, recently ran for the California Democratic Party Central Committee, from Assembly Districts 76 and 80, respectively.
Wood, a lifelong communist, intended to push for the “Healthy California Act that provides improved Medicare for All, a Living Wage of at least $15/hour, the Green New Deal for a healthy environment with good new jobs in a peace economy, and legislation to promote strong Unions.” In 1999, California’s then-Democratic Gov. Gray Davis appointed Wood to a six-year term on the California Public Utilities Commission, where he “played a significant role in protecting California from the consequences of its disastrous deregulation experiment.”
Sparaco, a former leader of the Young Communist League, traveled to Sochi, Russia, in October 2017, as part of a U.S. communist delegation to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution—keynoted by Vladimir Putin himself. In 2018, Sparaco was a leading activist in Flip the 49th, which helped Democrat Mike Levin win California’s 49th Congressional District.
In Northern California, Sacramento area Democratic Rep. Ami Bera, who serves on the House Foreign Relations Committee, has won several super-close elections with communist help. For example, in 2014, CPUSA members Juan Lopez, Cassie Lopez, Michelle Kern, Nell Ranta, and Mik Diddams canvassed and phone-banked out of Bera’s campaign headquarters.
Further up the left coast in rural Washington state, communists Tim and Joyce Wheeler and Tim’s sister Marion “Honeybee” Wheeler Burns have been active in the Clallam County Democrats for decades. They campaignedfor Barack Obama, U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, and local Rep. Derek Kilmer. Timtraveled to international communist gatherings for many years as editor of the CPUSA’s People’s World. His father, Don Wheeler, betrayed American secrets to Moscow during World War II while working for U.S. intelligence.
Over in Minnesota, local CPUSA leaders the late Doris and Erwin Marquitwere very active inside the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (Minnesota’s Democratic Party affiliate). The couple helped raise funds for congressional aspirant Keith Ellison in their home three times. In 2006, they used their political influence to help get Ellison elected to Congress.
Another Minnesota communist, Mark Froemke, is very active in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Froemke has enjoyed good relations with former Minnesota Sen. Al Franken and former Gov. Mark Dayton.
Swinging down to Chicago, we see CPUSA members such as Pepe Lozanoworking in the successful Chuy Garcia for Congress campaign. CPUSA member Abdul-Aziz Hassan has worked for 22nd Ward Alderman Ricardo Munoz, a Democrat, for several years. Even CPUSA leader John Bachtellonce served as a precinct chairman for U.S. Senate candidate Obama.
In Ohio, former CPUSA chairman Rick Nagin worked inside the Democratic Party for decades. In 2006, Nagin was on the staff of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations 2006 campaign that first elected Sherrod Brown. Nagin also worked closely with Rep. Dennis Kucinich for many years. Nagin has run several times for public office on the Democratic Party ticket and served as the Democratic Leader in Cleveland Ward 14 and on the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Executive Committee.
In St. Louis, the CPUSA has worked closely with many black Democratic candidates through its front group the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. Longtime CPUSA member Glenn Burleigh is very active in the Democratic Party and has managed several Democratic campaigns, including Robin Wright-Jones for State Senate and Lewis Reed for St. Louis mayor. Missouri CPUSA leader Tony Pecinovsky will be standing for St. Louis Alderman in 2020, presumably as a Democrat.
Over in New York City, the communists have been working inside the Democratic Party since at least the 1930s.
Former communist Dan Margolis was active in New York City elections, including as the mid-Staten Island coordinator for the 2004 Democratic Party congressional campaign.
According to Margolis’s blog: “I ended up working on many Democratic campaigns during by time in the CPUSA: John Kerry’s, Obama’s twice, [Senator] Kirsten Gillibrand’s, Fernando Ferrer’s (he nearly beat Michael Bloomberg to become mayor of NYC), and a host of others known mostly to NYC residents. I am proud to say that I wrote the first official document in the CPUSA calling for support of Obama in the primaries: I wrote this as chair of the party in Brooklyn, in 2007.”
In 2014, the CPUSA’s Elizabeth Gurley Flynn Club wrote: “Sometimes, we must be free to disagree with Democrats on selected issues, even those whom we have supported, such as Obama on a national level, Jerrold Nadler, a progressive congressman from Manhattan, and Bill DeBlasio, who is New York City’s new progressive mayor. For example, we should be free to advocate a general reduction of our country’s military and to disagree with the Obama Administration’s expansion of some sections of our military forces.”
Across the river in New Jersey, communists such as Estevan Nembhard and Carol Widom were active in Democrat Ras Baraka’s successful 2014 campaign for the mayoralty of Newark. Baraka is the son of one-time CPUSA member Amina Baraka.
Connecticut is the CPUSA’s “jewel in the crown.” The party almost runs the state. The CPUSA is close to Gov. Ned Lamont, as it was to his predecessor Dannel Malloy. Both U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Sen. Chris Murphy are close to the party. Sen. Murphy employed CPUSA member Max Goldman as an aide for nearly three years, while serving on the highly sensitive Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Rep. Rosa DeLauro is very close to CPUSA Connecticut leader Joelle Fishman and her husband Art Perlo—the son of Roosevelt-era Soviet spy ring leader Victor Perlo. In 2012, DeLauro helped organize birthday celebrations for veteran Connecticut communist Al Marder. Comrade Marder is so well regarded in international communist circles that he was invited to Moscow in June 2015 to help the Russian Communist Party celebrate the anniversary of the Soviet defeat of Nazi Germany. Marder even got a big hug from then-Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov.
Three other Connecticut congressmembers, Jim Himes (House Intelligence Committee), Joe Courtney (House Armed Services Committee), and John B. Larson work closely with the CPUSA front group Connecticut Alliance for Retired Americans. Even freshman Rep. Jahana Hayes had veteran communist Len Yannielli working in her campaign office.
Down in Texas, the situation is not much better. In Dallas, local communist leader Gene Lantz is very active in the Democratic Party and the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans. Lantz is close to Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson(House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology) and is friends with Rep. Marc Veasey (House Armed Services Committee).
In Houston, local CPUSA leader Bernard Sampson doubles as a Democratic Party precinct chairman. The Houston CPUSA ran several comrades for public office in 2018 on the Democratic ticket (it’s illegal to run for office as a communist in Texas).
Comrade Ali Khorasani ran for Congress in Texas District 2 but was defeated in the primary. Communist Penny Shaw ran for a seat on the Harris County Commission but lost with 45 percent of the vote. Party member Sema Hernandez ran a shoestring campaign in the Texas U.S. Senate primary and managed to secure a respectable 250,000 votes.
And this is just the open or easily identifiable members. As a conspiratorial revolutionary organization, the CPUSA keeps much of its membership secret. The CPUSA almost certainly has many secret members and supporters in key positions throughout the Democratic Party.


Millions of grassroots Democrat voters are strongly opposed to communism. Many are descendants of families who fled communism in Eastern Europe, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Cuba. Many lost friends or family fighting communism in Vietnam. Many are Catholic, informed of the evils from communism at an early age by their priests, bishops, and popes.
Most would be horrified to know that communists are working openly and secretly at every level of their cherished Democratic Party.
The Democratic Party knows the identities of most of its communist members. The Democrats do more than turn a blind eye; they welcome the revolutionaries into their party.
The Democrats have spent the last two years bashing President Donald Trump for having ties to Russia. Yet the Democrats are willing to tolerate pro-China communists actively working within their own party.
By allowing communists to stand for office on their ticket, Democrats are cheating the American voter. By allowing communists to work closely with Democratic congressmembers and senators, they are endangering national security.

“Obama’s new home in Washington has been described as the “nerve center” of the anti-Trump opposition. Former attorney general Eric Holder has said that Obama is “ready to roll” and has aligned himself with the “resistance.” Former high-level Obama campaign staffers now work with a variety of groups organizing direct action against Trump’s initiatives. “Resistance School,” for example, features lectures by former campaign executive Sara El-Amine, author of the Obama Organizing.”

BARACK OBAMA: Was he America’s first closet Communist president?

Obama choose Communists and Marxists for the highest, most powerful positions in our land, including his closest political advisors, and his head of the CIA.  These facts are not in dispute.  Most are openly admitted by the people in question, as necessary damage control.  Our press chooses not to report them.
Professor Paul Kengor has extensively researched the Chicago communists whose progeny include David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Hussein Obama.  Add the openly Marxist, pro-communist Ayers, and you have many of the key players who put Obama into power.

They Destroyed Our Country
“They knew Obama was an unqualified crook; yet they promoted him. They knew Obama was a train wreck waiting to happen; yet they made him president, to the great injury of America and the world. They understood he was only a figurehead, an egomaniac, and a liar; yet they made him king, doing great harm to our republic (perhaps irreparable.)”
These people were engaged in a massive political conspiracy. The Democrats made a decision from the outset—beginning with the election campaign of the favored candidate of Wall Street and the CIA, Hillary Clinton—that they would not oppose Trump on his anti-working-class social policy or his authoritarian hostility to democratic rights and promotion of anti-immigrant racism, but on issues of imperialist foreign policy.

Barack Obama’s plot for a third term for life 
A Muslim dictatorship like his crony paymasters, the 9-11 invading Saudis who have financed him for decades.

“Obama has the totalitarian impulse. After all, he went around saying he didn't have Constitutional authority to legalize the illegals, and then he tried anyway. The courts stopped him.”
What was Obama’s motive? Simple, he knew if he did that for Hillary, he’d own the next President of the United States, and could blackmail her with the truth till the end of time. It literally would have given him a 3rd and 4th term.

Obama Appointees in the Communist Orbit

This week Rush Limbaugh repeated a quote from James Comey in a  New York Magazine interview: 
“I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.”
It’s hard to pin too much on that quote.  Perhaps Comey was joking by calling his vote for Jimmy Carter a vote for a Communist, in mockery of his supposedly fellow Republicans. 
Joking about support for Communism is not all that funny in the Obama administration. Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan actually did vote for a Communist presidential candidate.  Brennan and Comey are two of the central players in the Russia Collusion Hoax.
Obama choose Communists and Marxists for the highest, most powerful positions in our land, including his closest political advisors, and his head of the CIA.  These facts are not in dispute.  Most are openly admitted by the people in question, as necessary damage control.  Our press  chooses not to report them.
Professor Paul Kengor has extensively researched the Chicago communists whose progeny include David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Hussein Obama.  Add the openly Marxist, pro-communist Ayers, and you have many of the key players who put Obama into power.
John Brennan
Brennan (who was sworn in as CIA director on a draft of the US Constitution, without the Bill of Rights, instead of a Bible) said that while he had voted Communist, he wasn't an official member of the Communist Party - and was relieved that he had been accepted into the CIA.
Barack Hussein Obama
His Kenyan father was a communist, who met Obama’s mother, a radical leftist, in a Russian language class.  Stanley Dunham, Obama’s white grandfather, chose a notorious member of the Communist Party to be Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.
Obama wrote in his memoir that in college, he sought out Marxist professors.  A Marxist student at Occidental College, John Drew, confirms that Obama was a revolutionary Marxist in college.  Drew recounts:
Obama… believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back …As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase "When the revolution comes...."  …"There's going to be a revolution," Obama said, "we need to be organized and grow the movement."  In Obama's view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution. …Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. 
Obama tells us the  radical socialist conferences he attended before law school gave him his road map in life, i.e., their plan to put a stealth black candidate in the White House.  Obama's biggest job and his political career in Chicago were launched by self-avowed communist Bill Ayers.  Obama's run for state representative was as the hand-picked successor of a socialist state representative, who was publicly active in communist circles.  Obama's calling in life was work as a hard-left Alinskyite radical agitator.  Until he became president, Obama was a 20-year member of an openly Marxist church whose members had to take a pledge against the middle class.  When did Obama reject Marxism? 
Valerie Jarrett is Obama’s closest personal advisor to the present day.  She lived with the Obama’s in the White House, had dinner with them nightly and still lives with them in retirement!
“Her late father, James E. Bowman.. was involved with communist front groups and was in contact with a paid Soviet agent in the 1950s who was wanted for espionage.  Jarrett's maternal grandfather, Robert Rochon Taylor, was investigated by the FBI for his membership in communist groups and his business relationship with the same Soviet agent …Her late father-in-law, Vernon D. Jarrett, was assigned by the Communist Party USA to a special cultural arts cell …he was flagged by the FBI as an internal security risk to be swiftly arrested in the event of a hot war with the Soviet Union. The FBI also investigated his wife, Fernetta "Fern" Jarrett, for communist activities.”
Kengor discusses new documents obtained by Judicial Watch that show Valerie Jarrett’s father was active on behalf of Stalin in fomenting racial divisiveness in America, as a member of the American Committee for Protection of Foreign Born (ACPFB).
ACPFB “was founded by the Communist Party in order to exploit racial divisions in the United States for its own revolutionary purposes.” Its modus operandi was to polarize Americans along racial lines in order to advance the Soviet agenda.”
David Axelrod
Axelrod was the Chief Strategist for Obama’s presidential campaigns, and a Senior Advisor in the White House.  His mother worked for a communist newspaper.  His father, according to Axelrod in his memoir, “listed his party affiliation as ‘Communist.’  Axelrod got his start in Chicago politics through working for hardline Stalinist Soviet agents Harry and David Canter.
“The Canters were old hardline pro-Soviet communists, so much so that the senior Canter, Harry Jacob Canter, was actually brought to Moscow during the height of the Stalin period to work for the Soviet government as an official translator of Lenin’s writings. Harry was active in the old Industrial Workers of the World and had been secretary of the Boston Communist Party. He was not shy about his political enthusiasm. In 1930, he ran for governor of Massachusetts on the Communist Party ticket. After that, he sojourned to the Motherland, taking his entire family to Moscow with him, including his son David, who one day would come know David Axelrod…  the Canters actually knew and worked with Obama’s old communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis…Davis — again, Obama’s mentor — also knew and worked with Valerie Jarrett’s grandfather and father-in-law in Communist Party/left-wing circles in Chicago in the 1940s.)”
Other Communists, Red Diaper Babies and Marxists in Obama’s Circle
Susan Rice, Obama’s National Security Advisor, was up to her eyeballs in the Russia Collusion Hoax against candidate and then President Trump.
Rice wrote a 426-page dissertation praising, as “a model and a masterpiece in the evolution of international peacekeeping,” … the political ascendancy of Zimbabwe’s Marxist dictator, Robert Mugabe. In her dissertation, Rice lauded Mugabe as a “pragmatic, intelligent, sensible, gentle, balanced man” who possessed considerable “patience and restraint.”
David Maraniss, the Washington Post journalist chosen to write Obama’s biography, which covered up Obama’s radical past, was also a red diaper baby.  He father was a member of the Communist Party and worked through a cell in Detroit to secretly influence workers through his articles for the Detroit Times.
Frank Marshall Davis, the biggest influence on Obama’s black identity from age ten through college years, was a card-carrying member of the Communist party.
Frank Marshall Davis was a pro-Soviet, pro–Red China communist. His Communist Party USA card number, revealed in FBI files, was CP #47544. He was a prototype of the loyal Soviet patriot, so radical that the FBI placed him on the federal government’s Security Index. In the early 1950s, Davis opposed U.S. attempts to slow Stalin and Mao. He favored Red Army takeovers of Central and Eastern Europe, and communist control in Korea and Vietnam. Dutifully serving the cause, he edited and wrote for communist newspapers in both Chicago and Honolulu, courting contributors who were Soviet agents. In the 1970s, amid this dangerous political theater, Frank Marshall Davis came into Barack Obama’s life.” 
Reverend Jeremiah Wright
Obama’s pastor and personal hero and mentor, was an avowed Marxist.  His church congregants had to sign a pledge to support redistribution of wealth and reject ‘middleclassness.’ Discoverthenetworks reports:
Rev. Wright’s devotion to the tenets of liberation theology, which is essentially Marxism dressed up as Christianity. … calls for social activism, class struggle, and revolution aimed at overturning the existing capitalist order and installing, in its stead, a socialist utopia where today’s poor will unseat their “oppressors” and become liberated from their material (and, consequently, their spiritual) deprivations.  An extension of this paradigm is black liberation theology, which seeks to foment a similar Marxist revolutionary fervor founded on racial rather than class solidarity.
Is it any surprise that collusion with Russia, according to Victor David Hanson, was a feature of the Obama presidency? 
The Obama administration colluded with Rusian agents who produced the Steele Dossier.  It was paid for by Clinton, but it was Obama’s minions at the FBI, CIA and White House who weaponized this soviet disinformation against President Trump. 
We are all victims of the Obama cabal’s collusion with Russia – President Trump’s voters and all Americans who believe in our free and fair election process.

What Kind of State Is Vladimir 

Putin Building?

Recently, a Russian newspaper published an article by Vladislav Surkov, an advisor to the President of Russia. The piece was entitled “The long-lasting state of Putin.” In it, the Kremlin’s grey eminence explained the country’s current state and set coordinates of the long-term development of Russian statehood. What follows is an exploration of his views, not my own.
The author identified several types of empires that existed in Russian history: the state of Ivan the Third; the Empire of Peter the Great; Soviet Union of Lenin; and Russian Federation of Vladimir Putin. They had different social architecture and were formed in opposition to each other. In the era of Ivan the Third, the country freed itself from the Mongol-Tatar yoke; meantime, Moscow strengthened as a political center around which the fragmented principalities merged.
Since then, an absolute majority of Russian sovereigns (except for the Soviet period) considered themselves defenders of the Byzantine heritage and the Orthodox peoples. Peter the Great of the Romanov dynasty -- with German roots -- tried to demolish the archaic system of the Rurik dynasty and build a new Western-style empire. He made the long-held dream of his predecessors come true, providing access to the Baltic Sea and establishing a maritime connection with Europe. He did not sympathize with the Church and subordinated it to the state. It led to new political identity formula: “Orthodoxy. Autocracy. Nationality." It was no longer about secularism but about a state-oriented religion.
The Bolsheviks destroyed all narratives associated with monarchy. They took the concept of international communism and created the Soviet identity.
Throughout its history, Russian statehood developed in a wave-like mode. It was also characterized by incompleteness: none of the strategic projects of Ivan the Third, Peter the Great or Vladimir Lenin was ever came to a logical end. All of them were destroyed with large losses of blood.  The majority of the population were serfs until 1861 and did not actively participate in political life, relying on God's mercy and wisdom of the supreme ruler. This resulted in a deep abyss between the elite and the people.
With all the differences in internal perceptions of the nation and state, the three founding fathers of three three imperial models proceeded from the philosophy of the inevitability of territorial expansion and the special geopolitical mission of the Russian state. Ivan the Third managed to defeat the invincible Golden Horde; during the reign of Alexander I, Russia defeated the great army of Napoléon Bonaparte; the Soviet Union played a crucial role in the victory over Nazi Germany.
After the final fall of Napoleonic France, Russia was one of the initiators of forming new security architecture in Europe based on the principle of balance of power (the Vienna system). A similar situation was observed after the capitulation of the Third Reich and the entry of Soviet troops into Berlin. Moscow, which suffered the most human losses in this war, did not reject the proposals of the Allies on the anti-Hitler coalition, which led to creation of the UN and to the system of division of responsibility between the great powers.
The present and future of Russia cannot be understood without a clear vision of its past. According to Vladimir Putin, the USSR’s collapse occurred for a number of internal reasons. That is why Russians cannot accept it when people in the West speak of Russia's “defeat” in the Cold War. At some point, the new elites in Moscow thought that the country could be accepted into the Western family. This would end the confrontation that sucked all economic juices and at least twice (the Berlin and Cuban Missile crises) put humanity on the edge of nuclear war.
The liberal experiment crumbled when even the most loyal figures to the ideas of democracy embodied by “collective Yeltsin” realized that the EU had not been seeking to embrace Russia. Meantime, the United States expanded NATO and ignored Russia's opinion on significant issues, including the campaign against Saddam Hussein. Every step of the West disappointed supporters of democracy and strengthened the positions of conservative bloc led by Putin.
For the past twenty years, the West kept criticizing Russian authorities for human rights issues, non-transparent elections, and harassment of political opponents. All these problems existed. However, most of the reports on these topics did not consider many factors. Democracy is not a static achievement but an evolutionary process. The scale of democratization depends on a country’s specific circumstances. For example, it is impossible to prepare the conservative population of Russia for the idea that the state can allow same-sex marriage. Activists in large cities that share these ideas do not make even 10% of Russia’s population. The majority of Russians love their tzar and trust his course. That is why Putin's Russia is a long-lasting and serious matter.
Putinism and the model of Putin’s Russia are formed on the bases of the states of Ivan the Third, Peter the Great and Lenin. The main basis is the state's interest. For Putin, the state is not about only the social well-being of its citizens but also the protection of Russian civilization. He believes that economic success is a matter of time, so the priority is the state's territorial integrity. His logic is that Moscow’s interests are considered only when it behaves tough while its peaceful rhetoric is perceived as weakness. This explains his active strengthening of the armed forces and special services. Another important element is religion. Putin pays attention to all religious denominations. Like many rulers of Russia, he regards Orthodoxy as the instrument of uniting the Russian people, the state-builders.
According to Putinism, Moscow’s global mission is to protect conservative values. In this sense, Putin is not opposing his country to the West. He believes that modern Russia is the guardian of real Christian conservative European values. The EU’s failures in domestic and foreign policy led to a deep crisis in its organization and questioned the feasibility of integration project model as a tool for solving problems. Brexit, the victory of right-wing movements in Europe, and the triumph of Jacksonian conservative Donald Trump were indicators of systemic changes in world politics. Liberal Democrats do not want to believe that these events are the result of internal social demands. They actively promote the image of Putin as a new “godfather” of nationalism. He is not. He is the last of the pleiad of such leaders as Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
Success in Syria and active Russian politics in Asia, Africa and Venezuela show that the new system of international relations will no longer ignore Moscow as a factor. For Vladimir Putin, it is important that the great powers return to some principles of past systems: sovereignty and non-interference in each other’s internal affairs (the Westphalian system); balance of power (the Vienna system); and spheres of influence (the Yalta-Potsdam architecture). At the first stage, the “long-lasting state” of Putin will be formed in its natural geopolitical area. The main zone of influence is the post-Soviet space, which Putin’s Russia will not surrender.
There are many reasons for this. Firstly, not a single Western power will enter into an open confrontation with Russia for these countries. Secondly, in the battle of democracy with geography, the latter wins. Moscow has the advantage of deeper knowledge of these countries and peoples. Thirdly, the post-Soviet peoples who are promised democracy and better future lose their patience.
As its influence grows and Western countries' influence falls, Russia will gather back fragments of its empire and expand its geopolitical impact. This is the natural condition of Russian statehood from the moment of its appearance to the present day. Therefore, it is wrong to assume that Vladimir Putin bent Russia to his will. On the contrary, Russia has subsumed him to itself.
