I would have published that list without the Hon. before the name. Hon. Neil
Abercrombie (HI-01)

The Hon. Neil Abercrombie is part of the eligibility coverup.

Glad to actually see it in black and white (no pun intended)

Well, two thoughts. No surprise…… but holy shiite batman that list needs to
be everywhere. Maybe the public would re elect anyway but my guess is this
could certainly rattle a few mid terms.

What? How dare you accuse the Democraps (or the left in general) of being
socialists, Marxists and communists. You guys have been watching too much
Glenn Beck.

This is one of the main reasons I left the Left. We were never honest about
who we were and what we believed. That’s because we wanted to dupe
average Joe’s in the Democrap Party to vote for us.

I have no problem as a Republican and a Conservative to admit that I’m a

proud Capitalist. It’s time for the left to admit that they’re Marxists. Let the
voters decide if that’s okay or not. Stop lying about what you really believe.

August 13th, 2010 | 4:47 pm | #11

Only 10?

August 13th, 2010 | 4:49 pm | #12

Maurice Hinchey (NY-22 and I never thought in my life I would know what
my congressional district was) is up for reelection this year. Some guy named
George Philips I think is running against him. I tried twice to volunteer to do
anything to help. Apparently they’re waiting until the last moment to spring
the campaign on us.

We need better candidates. We need us.

So Maxine Waters wasn’t kidding last year when she threatened to

the word “nationalize”).

My guess is that this list will hit Big Government, etc. very quickly…

I also suppose Obama WAS on the list, but is no longer a voting member fo
the caucus.

Since he liked communicating directly with Yuri Andropov, my guess is that

the less-than-honorable Ted Kennedy also belonged.

campaign ads? You betcha!

August 13th, 2010 | 5:32 pm | #25

We now have a list. We can call it an Enemies List because they are enemies
of freedom, truth and what used to be known as the “American Way”. We can
call it a Hit List because these are the people we need to get rid of (with our
votes, of course).

I found this list about 3 months ago and wrote all 70 DSA members in
congress. NOT one response except from Ed Pastor (D-4th/AZ) who
answered back that he was not a socialist and they (DSA) took the names
from the Progressive Caucus and it was in error! Didn’t seem too upset by it.
Probably truely proud of his achievement!
He sure looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck!

JJones. You have a point and we need to look carefully. Remember the slime
balls on the left aren’t stupid, but they are slime balls. This list is missing
some big names. Sen. Chris Dodd is a commie. He’s not on here. Why? There
are surely others with big names missing. Perhaps only some of the folks on
this list are legitimate socialist members, and the libs will “prove” that some
aren’t, and therefore will attempt to have us throw out the whole list. So
sorry libs. Your game is up.

Well, my main point is that this list just seems too good to be true. If this was
the actual list of the bonafide members of the socialist party that are in

where did this list come from? who’s behind it? who gains from it’s
publishing? who gains from the hyper-reaction to it? too many questions

I don’t doubt the validity of this at all, but like some of the other
commenters, I have my doubts that a list like this was actually published. I
think someone big on our side (Rush, Sean, or Glenn) would have been all
over it when it came out. I did a search, went to their website, and found
nothing. I don’t want to be spreading this around and look like a “kook” if it’s
not something that was actually published. Anyone have a link for something
other than scribd.?

August 13th, 2010 | 7:38 pm | #57

Haywood comment #51…should have clicked your link before posting my

question. It appears that the names came from that list. Of course we all
know that progressive is code for socialist, but I doubt there was an actual
list from the actual socialist party organization with these names on them.
Besides, Sean Hannity exposed far worse ties to Obama before the election,
and the people who supported Obama didn’t care about them either.

Interesting, but…look at history…Would you really trust a Socialist? I mean,

a great way
to get “men of good will” to fight among themselves would be to act as a
“third party” and tell lies about one group or faction to
another…Think about it. The Socialists modus operandus is “hidden
control”. Why would
they out their own covert operatives? Also how would 70 congressmen be
able to hide their involvement? Washington is a fishbowl…You can get any
congressman’s schedule by looking on their website…I could put
out a “newsletter” saying that goldfish are really mammals…does that make it
true?? The Nazis burned down the Reichstag [German Parlaiment] and
blamed it on the Communists. Senator “Tail Gunner” Joe McCarthy had his
infamous “list” of “known Communists” and spread total slander, ruining
hundreds of peoples’ careers and lives before Edward R. Murrow stopped
him…Muslim extremists say the West is the Great Satan, etc etc…Some

The scribd post looks like simply an edit of that ridiculous American
Socialist Voter website.

Why use such a curious method to post that link? Something is incredibly
fishy. Perhaps the list was taken down from the original source, but a simple
screenshot would have been a far more incriminating piece of evidence.

Not to mention the fact that the American Socialist Voter website looks like
it was very hastily produced. It’s a horrible blog template (with at least one
section at the bottom still unfilled, with the default ‘insert photos here’ text
still visible!)

There may be validity to many of these claims, but I have some serious
questions. If this post is bogus, the entire cause does itself a tremendous
disservice by crying wolf at every dubious or manipulated sign of rampant

To all the people who immediately ranted and raved in the comments section
without, I imagine, even taking 5 minutes to verify these claims for
yourselves…shame on you.

If you’re not willing to look at everything with a critical eye, and think and
research for yourself….If you choose instead to yell and scream and bang
pots in the street, you’re part of the problem. You’re part of the great,
unwashed mass of uneducated, ignorant pawns that are simply manipulated

The Democratic Socialists of America is a marxist party that was formed out
of the old Democratic Socialists Organizing Committee of Michael
Harrington and some of the older Socialist Party of Norman Thomas.

It is different than the pathetic remnants still called the “Socialist Party” and
it is more marxist and more anti-American. The fact that is has so many
members of Congress in it shows how far and deep marxism has gotten into
the body politique.

However, we must keep the two groups separate – DSA and SP, otherwise we
will mislead readers as to who is really who.

The DSA-Affiliated Congressional Socialist Caucus Re-Discovered

[And, yes, there’s more. Taking another look or two at those FEC
filings for the DSA PAC, we have a few more discoveries to report.

1. It is no secret that the DSA is the American member of the Socialist

International. Now we can state that the DSA is a dues-paying member of the
Socialist International, as revealed in the FEC records. For every year the
PAC has reported to the FEC, it has made annual payments to SI.

2. In 2006 disbursements were made for one political campaign, that of

Bernie Sanders/Sanders for Senate. In subsequent years, disbursements
were made to Progressive Voters of America, which is Bernie Sanders’ PAC.

3. In October 2008, a total disbursement, year to date, of $3,549.37, was

made to John S. McCain. There is no further notation as to why the DSA PAC
was making donations of any sort to the Republican presidential candidate.

4. Finally, on November 11, 2008, a week after the presidential election,

DSA PAC paid $532.48 to Cambridge Offset Printing for a postal mailing in
Massachusetts in support of Barack Obama. This amount was included in the
$2,432.48 year to date amount DSA PAC expended for the Barack Obama

As much as all these individuals would like us to not notice, the facts speak
for themselves. They are socialists, supporting socialists. It’s plain and

McCain questions: 1) did he know about

it?? if so.. 2) did he keep it or return it??

August 14th, 2010 | 11:18 am | #130

“I saw that the New Deal was only superficially a reform movement. I had to
acknowledge the truth of what its more forthright protagonists, sometimes
unwarily, sometimes defiantly, averred: the New Deal was a genuine
revolution, whose deepest purpose was not simply reform within existing
traditions, but a basic change in the social, and, above all, the power
relationships within the nation. It was not a revolution by violence. It was a
revolution by bookkeeping and lawmaking. In so far as it was successful, the
power of politics had replaced the power of business. This is the basic power
shift of all the revolutions of our time. This shift _was_ the revolution. It was
only of incidental interest that the revolution was incomplete, that it was
made not by tanks and machine guns, but by acts of Congress and decisions
of the Supreme Court, or that many of the revolutionists did not know what
they were or denied it. But revolution is always an affair of force, whatever
the force disguises itself in. Whether the revolutionists prefer to call
themselves Fabians, who seek power by the inevitability of gradualism, or
Bolsheviks, who seek power by the dictatorship of the proletariat, the
struggle is for power.

Now I thought that I understood much better something that in the past had
vaguely nibbled at my mind, but never nibbled to a conclusion — namely,
how it happened that so many concealed Communists were clustered in
Government, and how it was possible for them to operate so freely with so
little fear of detection. For as between revolutionists who only half know
what they are doing and revolutionists who know exactly what they are doing
the latter are in a superb maneuvering position.

At the basic point of the revolution — the shift of power from business to
government — the two kinds of revolutionists were at one; and they shared
many other views and hopes. Thus men who sincerely abhorred the word
Communism, in the pursuit of common ends found that they were unable to
distinguish Communists from themselves, except that it was the Communists
who were likely to be most forthright and most dedicated in the common
cause. For men who could not see that what they firmly believed was
liberalism added up to socialism could scarcely be expected to see what
added up to Communism. Any charge of Communism enraged them
precisely because they could not grasp the differences between themselves
and those against whom it was made.”

Thanks, for a view of the propaganda against most of the prominent

Democrats and Independents in congress.

First of all the symbol of the Democratic Socialists of America is a rose above
two clasped hands not the Russian Communist party hammer and sickle. To
equate socialism with communism is really slander.

We all share the cost of the police department – socialism.

We all share the cost of the fire department – socialism.
We all contribute to educate those who cannot afford a private education –
We all pay for the paving of public roads – socialism.
I collect my Social Security payments which I paid into for 22 years –
I use Medicare which I pay into every month and did while I was working
after it was instituted – socialism.

Unfortunately, I also pay for the cost of wars in the middle east which benefit
large international corporations who avoid the taxes that fund those wars.
Capitalism at its worst.

You don’t have to search for cached web images to find the list or rely on old

You can find an updated list with 82 names openly published on

an official House of Representatives web site. These members of
Congress are part of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus worked in openly with the

Democratic Socialists of America until 1999.

My Congressman, Sam Farr, is a member. You might also find it interesting

that his campaigns are financed almost exclusively by out-of-state public-
employee unions and labor unions. I haven’t yet looks, but I expect that the
other members of the Progressive Caucus have similar ties.

Look at the list of the top political donors.

Nearly all the organizations associated with public-employee or labor unions

give almost exclusively to Democrats (95%+).

Ms Durand (#134), your “insights” are simply wrong. The interstate highway

system isn’t a sign of Socialism any more than the existence of the military
that you and your fellow travelers loathe so deeply.

As for the comparison of Socialism to Communism being slanderous, you’re

either ignorant or you’re intentionally trying to draw a distinction where
none exists; either way, you’re dead wrong. Karl Marx was explicit in calling
Socialism the pathway to his (ultimately impossible) dream of pure
Communism. They aren’t the same thing *only* in the sense that one, by
design, is supposed to lead directly to the other.

As for the police and the highways and the trash, sharing the cost of any
public service through taxation isn’t Socialism; it’s sharing the cost of a
public service when that public service can’t be delivered profitably by
business. The overwhelming majority of goods and services delivered in our
economy are still delivered by private businesses, not government; that’s not
how things work in a Socialist economy.

It’s been tried on every continent for nearly 100 years, and you and your
comrades persist in the delusion that it can be made to work with just a little
tweaking. You’re entitled to your fantasies, I suppose, but I’m sorry – you’re
not entitled to ignore a century of failed history.

Socialism, BY DESIGN, calls for the subjugation of individual rights in favor

of the collective, which usually means the few party elite on the balcony
instead of the unwashed masses in the street. BY DESIGN, it must be
imposed on a population and maintained by force because naturally free
people will resist it. If you don’t like that characterization, then join a
different party – because that’s the party you’re defending here.

Tad shocking at first glance-but not so surprising. NOrman Thomas the

former perennial candidate of the Socialist Party said something like “I have
no more reason to run; the Democratic Party has accomplished all I ever
hoped to accomplish.” Unfortunately the Republican establishment at times
doesn’t seem far behind them. Probably most Democratic Senators and
Congressmen and the President himself could qualify for membership if not
actually being a member.

My Congressman, Sam Farr, is a member of the Congressional Progressive

Caucus. His major campaign contributors are out-of-state political action
committees (PACs) funded primarily by public-employee unions, labor
unions, or affiliated groups. They represent special interests and do not
represent the views of his Congressional district. This money allows
distortions of democracy at the ballot box.

Let’s see if this same pattern holds for the other members of the
Congressional Progressive Caucus. It could be that belonging to the
Congressional Progressive Caucus provides an easy conduit to union money
and some of these Congressmen/women are smart enough to know how to
game the system.

murder by Utopianism by any other name

[But communists could not be wrong. After all, their knowledge was
scientific, based on historical materialism, an understanding of the
dialectical process in nature and human society, and a materialist (and thus
realistic) view of nature. Marx has shown empirically where society has been
and why, and he and his interpreters proved that it was destined for a
communist end. No one could prevent this, but only stand in the way and
delay it at the cost of more human misery. Those who disagreed with this
world view and even with some of the proper interpretations of Marx and
Lenin were, without a scintilla of doubt, wrong. After all, did not Marx or
Lenin or Stalin or Mao say that. . . . In other words, communism was like a
fanatical religion. It had its revealed text and chief interpreters. It had its
priests and their ritualistic prose with all the answers. It had a heaven, and
the proper behavior to reach it. It had its appeal to faith. And it had its
crusade against nonbelievers.

What made this secular religion so utterly lethal was its seizure of all the
state's instrument of force and coercion and their immediate use to destroy
or control all independent sources of power, such as the church, the
professions, private businesses, schools, and, of course, the family.


Communism has been the greatest social engineering experiment we have

ever seen. It failed utterly and in doing so it killed over 100,000,000 men,
women, and children, not to mention the near 30,000,000 of its subjects
that died in its often aggressive wars and the rebellions it provoked. But
there is a larger lesson to be learned from this horrendous sacrifice to one
ideology. That is that no one can be trusted with power. The more power the
center has to impose the beliefs of an ideological or religious elite or impose
the whims of a dictator, the more likely human lives are to be sacrificed. This
is but one reason, but perhaps the most important one, for fostering liberal

[Waxman works on socialist issues. He votes like a socialist, but is he a

socialist? Well, he is one of 58 members of Congress -- 57 Democrats and one
independent -- who have signed onto the agenda of the Democratic Socialists
of America.

This group in the House of Representatives calls itself the Progressive

Caucus. Waxman, by the way, is the ranking member of the Government
Oversight and Reform Committee. But that's just the beginning. There are
seven ranking committee members in this group.

The Democrats have put socialists in charge of their members on the Ways
and Means Committee, the Banking and Small Business Committees, The
Science Committee, the Veterans Committee, the Resources Committee and
the Judiciary Committee. In fact, there are five members of the Progressive
Caucus on the committee currently holding hearings on the Inquiry of
Impeachment for Bill Clinton.

There is nothing progressive about the Progressive Caucus. The Democratic

Socialists of America is an affiliate of Socialist International, whose roots go
all the way back to 1864. Don't be fooled by the use of the word
"democratic." The group explains, "At the root of our socialism is a profound
commitment to democracy, as means and end." The end this group has in
mind is economic redistribution in order to achieve social and
environmental justice.]

This is ridiculous. There is no such group as the “Socialist Part of America” 

today; it renamed itself “Social Democrats USA” in the early 1970s. It
pursued a very hawkish foreign policy platform; among the institutions its
members have supported are Freedom House and the National Endowment
for Democracy.

The “Democratic Socialists of America” was a group that left the Socialist

Party about that time; they were more dovish. I attended some of their
meetings while I was in college but never joined. But I did not meet a single
Marxist there.

First Things is better than this.

Is this actually a list of members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus?

As others have pointed out, there hasn’t been a “Socialist Party of America” 
since 1972. (Instead we have the Democratic Party, CP-USA, Socialist Party
USA, etc.)
The cited website is not an official organ of any party:

It’s always a serious mistake to pass satire or nonsense as fact.

Obama a socialist! We all need to educate ourselves when we read articles

that is based on lies!!

I beg to differ. What is misleading is the implication that there is any intrinsic
difference between Communism and Socialism. They are the same basic
ideology working under different time frames — i.e. Communist have
repeatedly shown themselves willing to use force to facilitate immediate take
over and Socialist go the slow, steady route of infiltration, manipulation &
indoctrination. No apparent difference in end results — social oppression &
economic stagnation.

For all the “why would they publish their names?” doubters out there, read
the last couple of lines of Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto”.

It Reads; ” The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They
openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow
of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling class tremble at a Communistic
Revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They

The Socialists feel they have all the power they need right now and are ready
(and doing it, it may be argued) to openly seize power and reject the
Constitution of the United States. Obama’s policies and disconnect with the
sheep who voted for him is obvious to most everyone including the
independants who voted for him and the inevitable cabinet of commies he
would bring with him to the oval office.

As to the “failure” of the government to contain the financial downfall of our

country, referring to Alinsky and his “political paradise of communism”, he
has this to say;
“Any revolutionary change MUST be precededby a passive, affirmative,
non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They
must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing
system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This
acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution.”

As can be inferred from this last statement, Obama and Congress are
intentionally pushing us towards the brink of disaster to get the general
public to accept and EMBRACE the totalitarian ethic they desire so much.

Don’t give up hope, we are not all defeated by their words and deeds just yet.
We must prevail against the forces of darkness they are trying to force upon
us by exposing them to the light of day with their own rhetoric and actions.

August 15th, 2010 | 8:35 am | #199

hmm let’s connect the dots. to understand why there are so many socilaists
on the Judiciary committe one must understand what the Judiciary
committee is responsibile for:

among other things the judiciary committee is the governmental group in

charge of:

1)Bankruptcy, mutiny, espionage, and counterfeiting.

2)The judiciary and judicial proceedings, civil and criminal.

3) Immigration policy and non-border enforcement

4) Subversive activities affecting the internal security of the United States.

So can you say the fox guarding the chicken house. the socialists now have
the power to decide immigration and border issues, what and who is
“subversive”. what judges get appointed etc.

this is just one more datapoint of the socialist takeover of this country from

First off using a Soviet symbol reveals bias and not knowing the difference
between socialism and communism. But then most in the states don’t know
and stupidly label all the same. But the real issue is just trying to stir the
angry conservative mindset which labels and demonizes anyone and
anything that is not like them. With that job done well for you continue
spreading fear and illusion.

To Jeff, #203 — Go ahead and argue semantics, you useful tool. The fact of
the matter is that communists understand that it is difficult to go directly
from capitalism to communism without a bloody revolution, so they push for
socialism instead. Socialism is just a rest stop in the long march to
communism. Pull your head out of your butt and understand that the
“progressives” — whether labeled communists, socialists, Marxists, liberals,
Leftists or whatever — mean to destroy capitalism and with it the entire way
of life we cherish as free men. I intend to remain a free man.

Whether or not the list is valid, we must all review the voting history on
candidates and any bills they have sponsered (and/or added pork to).
Several decades ago as a poor farm boy, I might have supported
redistribution of wealth to enjoy things more fortunate had. In a couple more
decades I might again be tempted to support redistribution to see my final
years end in modest comfort (it seems that all I have worked for and saved is
gradually being eroded by actions of the US leaders and congress). But if this
was the way, I would not have much incentive to work hard to better myself
and quite frankly the US would at best be a 2nd world country.
Trucker provided some good links which I am not yet sure in what extent to
I do know that we forget that the US government was established to join and
protect the individual 13 original governments (nations), yet we continue to
allow the takeover and abolishment of States Rights and individual freedom.
The way things are going, I am tempted to support a division of the US and
stick with the ‘Grass Roots’ section.

Oh the ironing with freedom loving conservatives. All these freedom lovers
so ready to give America back to corporate socialist. How do you feel about
your freedoms being determined by people much richer than you in back
rooms and board meetings? It is one thing to dislike the democrats in control
but to be ready to pull the lever for anyone claiming to be a “conservative” 
right now is letting the wolves back in the hen house. Remember, you can
vote out elected officials, not stake holders.

Mr. Hoft, I think that you have fallen for some false-flag skullduggery. One
of the websites says that these 70 are members of a PAC. Now these 70 may
be dancing on the knife-edge of advocating socialism and some may actually
be socialists, but the headline of your posting does not stand.
