    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.

  • Print this list out so we know where to start to clean up this government. Glad to actually see it in black and white (no pun intended)
    Now let’s get busy, FIRED UP AND READY TO GO.

  • Joanne

    #1 – exactly what I was thinking.

  • olm

    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.

  • Randy

    They forgot Obama’s name on the list.

    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.

  • Only 10?

  • kate

    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.

  • Me

    Clean house people, it is up to us to rid this scurge from the congress. Now is not the time to sleep but get out there and vote the commies out

    I think that was sardonically satirical sarcasm…

  • rickl

    So Maxine Waters wasn’t kidding last year when she threatened to nationalize the oil companies (even though she seemed to draw a blank on the word “nationalize”).

    Marsh: Well said. Welcome aboard. (Speaking as an ex-leftist myself.)

  • Callipygian1

    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.

  • Comy

    THere is no “Hon.”

    It is “Commy”

  • looks like who’s who in the black caucus, californians, and northeasterners!!! I wouldn’t stop at calling them socialists, they’re marxists of various genres.

    ma has 10 congresscitters of which 6 are on the list.

  • bitterclinger

    Will the GOP be too stupid or complicit (honor among the thieving class, you know) to use this info — and not just the names but the agenda — in their campaign ads? You betcha!

  • arnonerik

    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 do wonder why the stinking cockroaches are finally coming out in the daylight. What kind of fraud and deception are they planning for their September/October surprise.

  • My first thought ran along the lines of JAWS. “We’re going to need a bigger boat.”

    I thought, “We’re going to need a lot more tar and feathers. Fred, get the truck.”

  • kansas

    Funny how many on that list have elicted a visceral hate reaction from me when I see them on TV.

    ‘I do wonder why the stinking cockroaches are finally coming out in the daylight.” just a tad detached from reality.

  • Nina Marlow

    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! Hmmm…
    Got vote these people OUT!!!

    These socialist scum will pull this country to its knees if they aren’t dealt with by throwing them out and prosecuting them to the fullest extent of their crimes.
    The HUAC should be reformed and begin hearings immediately for these seventy and ferrett out the rest who may not be as open with whose side they’re on.

    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 congress, would it be so readily available on the internet. My guess is no. so 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 makes me pause.

    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.?

  • Setusfree2012

    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.

  • Paddy

    Is there anyone from the Congressional Black Caucus that is not on this list?

    I am reminded of the communist organization, ANSWER, an acronym for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism. The racist of today seems to be: (1) communist; (2) ultra liberal; and (3) more frequently than not, Black. They have developed race baiting to a high art form.

  • George Hirsch

    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 entity ‘publishes’ what they SAY is a fact – somebody gets hurt. Yes, you gotta watch everybody, but don’t LISTEN to them, do your research, REAL research…gh

  • Matt

    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 socialism.

    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 and taken advantage of by unscrupulous powers on BOTH sides of the aisle.

  • Johnson and Jackson-Lee really don’t surprise me; however, with some of what’s been going on with the border states, I’m surprised more of the Texas representatives aren’t on this list.

  • donh

    Only 1 of my 5 Reps in CT ( all dems ) made the list, Rosa Delaurio. All the other 180+ dems not on the list must be members of a secret underground international party of neo fascists led by people like George Soros. Question is how many Republicans are part of the same underground club of log cabin Lennenists.

    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.

    Would anyone grow fat on the difference between a Progressive and a Socialist?
    It’s not all that long that Newsweek trumpeted “We are all Socialists now”.
    To be a Socialist one does not need to belong to a Socialist Party.
    That list will do as a good starter. Smarter analysts than me will cull it and add to it based on positions taken by those in Congress.

    The only problem with this is that it is a combination of two different articles. The list of the of Progressive Congress persons is correct. Membership doesn’t mean that the person is a card carrying DSA member. Although DSA did help start the Progressive Congressional Caucus!

    . . . well, some people do evolve; we have former leftists posting here, for example, who have come away from the Dark Side of The Force.

    And your list is immediately suspect simply because you include at least one individual who’s been dead a while – Tom Lantos. With no intent to give offense, this undercuts your claims of research.

    After reading the book, “The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression”, why isn’t this group on the terror list? When you kill more than a 100 million people there has to be consequences for it! Communism is not a political idealogy its a terrorist agenda!

    Looking at your list more closely, there are several decedents there, including one from 2002 (Patsy Mink) and at least two who are now Senators. This list is obsolete and woefully inaccurate. Posting this kind of garbage only discredits conservatives . . . or was that your intent?

    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 campaign.

    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 simple.]

    McCain questions: 1) did he know about
    it?? if so.. 2) did he keep it or return it??

    Let me begin by saying that I do not doubt that the names on the list are indeed socialist and that it is probably incomplete. Having said that, it appears that the list may be an addition to the DSA website by “TYSK News” by way of inference from the membership list of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. I know, the CPC and the DSA are birds of a feather but it does not appear, at first glance, that the DSA published this list.

  • I personally find no problem calling a socialist a socialist. My socialist in office is Phil Hare. He walks like a socialist, talks like a socialist, receives funds from every Union imaginable, and enacts socialist legislation.

    Monkey see monkey do. And they are bunch of collectivist monkeys, all aping each other. No depth of thought involved, just a bunch of conformist, hypnotized socialists. None of them has a mind of their own.

  • Jeff Dege

    “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 – socialism.
    We all pay for the paving of public roads – socialism.
    I collect my Social Security payments which I paid into for 22 years – socialism.
    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 information.

    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%+).

    Democratic Socialists of Congress: Meet the Members

Following a subsequent expose of the link between the two entities, the Progressive Caucus established its own website under the auspices of Congress. But DSA and the Progressive Caucus remain intimately linked. All 58 Progressive Caucus members also belong to DSA. In addition to these members of Congress, other prominent DSA members include Noam Chomsky, Ed Asner, Gloria Steinem, and Cornel West, who serves as the organization’s honorary Chair.]

  • #152, David is right. It looks like someone took part of the information posted here, , where the assertion is made that the Democratic Progressive Caucus is in fact the DSA, and it is inserted into the DSA page, here: just below the incomplete member demographics.

    Unless someone comes up with a DIRECT LINK on the DSA site, what we have here is the membership of the Democratic Progressive Caucus, , photoshopped into the DSA page.

    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.

    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 democracy.]

    [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.

    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 have a world to win. WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES UNITE!”

    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.

    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 within.

    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 accept:
    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.

  • All forms of Socialism are based upon initiatory force, whether known as Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Democracy, etc.
    Oh, no one ever states it that way, it’s always something that just must be done for the children, or for the elderly, or for the environment. Regardless of what the reason is that is proffered, it is always about gaining the right to force others to do something. And it never works. How could a group of thugs with guns and jails ever accomplish anything other that to increase poverty? Increase poverty and you increase crime, homelessness, illiteracy, innumeracy, and eventually war.

    The Declaration of Independence is the organic law of the land and its main tenet that “all men are created equal” means that no person or group of people, including some group named “government”, may ever initiate force or fraud against any other person or group of people. That is the basis of a crime – a victim and a perpetrator. All federal regulation is based upon the threat of initiatory force and is, therefore, crime.
    The Constitution was adopted to form a gov’t under the rule of the Declaration of Independence. The gov’t under the rule of the Constitution must uphold the tenet that “all men are created equal”. Freedom means that everyone is equal.

    The gov’t and its owners all know this – it’s time for all Americans to re-establish our sovereignty. Here’s what’s going on in this country.

    The gov’t went bankrupt in the 1930’s as is evidenced by the correlation between the United States Code (USC) and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR): title 11 USC, “Bankruptcy”, is implemented by title 11 CFR, “Federal Elections”. You are simply voting for a bankruptcy “administration”. The Code of Federal Regulations was created in the mid-1930’s to set up the federal agencies that would impose Socialism, such as the EPA, the FDA, the SEC, the Dept of Education, ad nauseam.

    However, bankrupting the federal gov’t wasn’t enough to make Americans pay the interest on the FED’s counterfeit money loans to the gov’t. Sovereignty lies with the individual American, not the gov’t. This is because the Declaration of Independence is the organic law of the land and its first tenet is that “all men are created equal”. The Constitution has to support that tenet at all times. Since the individual is sovereign, the federal gov’t has only been granted jurisdiction over foreign commerce, interstate commerce, and trade with the Indians by Article I, section 8 of the Constitution.
    To get around all of the chains that the Constitution imposes on the federal gov’t, Social Security was created to destroy American sovereignty. The “Form SS-5” that an applicant uses to apply for a S.S.# is actually a federal employment form. After all, only a federal employee is liable for federal employment taxes. You know the name of the federal employee – the “taxpayer”. “Taxpayer” is a legal term defined at 26 CFR 2.1-1(a)(5) as a member of the Merchant Marine – a federal employee. 26 CFR 2.1-1(b) states that this is the definition of the term as used throughout the Code and the regulations for all calculation of taxes.
    The gov’t has been given jurisdiction over its possessions by Article IV, section 3 of the Constitution. By checking the box “U.S. citizen” on the “Form SS-5” the applicant has given the gov’t prima facie evidence that he has U.S. possession citizenship. “U.S. citizen” is also a legal term exemplified at 26 CFR 25.2501-1(c) as a person born in one of the States who then establishes a residence in a U.S. possession (Puerto Rico is cited in the example) and, further, acquires U.S. possession citizenship. This regulation then references back to 26 USC sec. 2501(b) where it states that this is the definition of the term “citizen” “wherever used in the title”. The U.S. possessions are treated as foreign countries (see 26 USC sec. 865(i)(3), 872(b)(7), and 2014(g) for example). This makes a “U.S. citizen” a foreigner. This is the 14th Amendment citizen.
    The combination of the legal terms “taxpayer” and “U.S. citizen” is known as the “U.S. resident” at 26 USC sec. 865(g). A “U.S. resident” is a “U.S citizen” living in America – a foreigner.
    So by applying for a S.S.# an American has given away all sovereignty and become a slave to the federal gov’t.
    All of this evidences that the owners of the gov’t are quite aware of its limited jurisdiction, but they have absolutely no regard for freedom.
    The gov’t is operating almost exclusively under the foreign commerce clause along with the presumption that everyone is a “taxpayer” – a federal employee.

    Title 20 USC, “Education”, is implemented by title 20 CFR, “Employee’s Benefits”. Education is paid for by school taxes addressed to “resident”. Your education is based upon being a federal employee. Government controlling education is the 10th plank of the Communist Manifesto.
    The Census Bureau questionnaire was addressed to “RESIDENT”. The Census Bureau is within the Dept of Commerce. Title 15 USC, “Commerce and Trade”, is implemented by title 15 CFR, “Commerce and Foreign Trade”. Everything comes back to foreign commerce.
    Internal revenue is within the customs. Customs gains revenue for the gov’t from importing duties from foreign countries. Internal revenue gains revenue for the gov’t from importing duties from the U.S. possessions – thus a source of “internal revenue”.
    The 3 commerce jurisdictions are cited separately in title 28 USC, “Judiciary and Judicial Procedure”, chapter 85, “District Courts; Jurisdiction”. Section 1336, “Surface Board Transportation Orders”, which was renamed from “Interstate Commerce Commission’s Orders” in late 1995, is the interstate commerce jurisdiction. Section 1362, “Indian Tribes”, is obviously the trade with the Indians commerce jurisdiction. Section 1340, “Internal revenue; customs duties”, is the foreign commerce jurisdiction. Income tax is the second plank of the Communist Manifesto. Inheritance tax is the third plank of the Communist Manifesto.

    The medicine and drug laws (the basis of the FDA) are also internal revenue laws. The gov’t has gone to great pains in its law writing to hide this fact, but all of it is available at where the laws are evidenced.
    The FBI is one of the many federal alphabet agencies created during the 1930’s when the Federal Reserve bankrupted the federal government. The authority granted to the FBI is cited at title 28 U.S.C., “Judiciary and Judicial Procedure”, section 533, “Investigative and other officials; appointment”, where it directs that the FBI is charged with investigating crimes against the United States, protecting the President, protecting the Attorney General, and other matters under the Department of Justice and the Department of State. The only people over which the FBI has jurisdiction is set out in title 28 U.S.C. section 535, “Investigation of crimes involving Government officials and employees; limitations”, as government officials and employees. There is no section of law that grants the FBI any investigative jurisdiction over sovereign Americans. An American has given up all sovereignty when applying for a Social Security number by becoming a federal employee and, therefore, subject to the FBI’s investigative powers.
    Go to where you will find posted evidence of docket tampering by the Appellate Court in order to avoid sitting in judicial review of my brief in which I have challenged the sufficiency of the IRS indictment. The IRS indictment uses the term “resident” in order to bring in all underlying jurisdiction and all of the actual elements of the charge.
    Go to where you will find cited the actual statutes of the USC that evidence that the US doesn’t have exclusive ownership of the Mississippi River. This is why BP is in charge of everything in the Gulf spill fiasco.
    The owners of the gov’t set out to control all Americans almost immediately after the ink dried on the Declaration of Independence. Up until that time all gov’t everywhere else was based upon powerful families (monarchs and tyrants) who presumed to own everyone and everything within their jurisdiction. These families still to this day presume the same thing – they are behind everything that is going on in America. They had no intent to let the colonies become free. You must fight for your freedom. We Americans have been asleep at the switch and have let these families slowly corrupt our law.
    I have evidenced the entire Social Security Scam on my Blog at

    What is a Socialist? All these people in Government seem to love the good life, comfort and entitlement. That requires money, even if they have to steal it.

    You tards’ do realize the DSA is not a real organization, right?

    I mean, if you actually followed the link you could read that this list is fake — but by all means continue with your impotent derp.

  • Chango

    You guys should really click the very first link of the article. Amazing stuff really. Sheds a whole new light on how unpatriotic and dishonest partisan politics and punditry really is.

  • Gee

    McCarthyism? Really? When does the stupidity end?

    …reading is fundamental.

  • wow

    So they expect us to believe there are no republican socialists? Reagan? Nixon? Roosevelt?


  • Mauro

    That fake list is pretty hilarious.

  • freedomslave

    The easiest way to spot an Anti -Constitutional politician is to find out how they vote on gun issues. To me anyone who votes against firearms are communists, or at the very least, completely ignorant of our heritage as Americans.

    The DSA is a real organization, the Democratic Socialists of America, and one that I was proud to be a member of — St. Louis chapter — for a time (we organized for national healthcare back in the late-1980s).

    Don’t know if that’s the same group they’re talking about here but the idea that *any* American socialist organization of the last 80 years could count more than three or four Congressional members among their ranks is pretty laughable.

    Hate to break it to you but these days it’s basically just Bernie Sanders.

    This is total BS. The Socialist Party of America ceased to exist in 1973. The DSA doesn’t have an Oct. 2009 newsletter only Fall of 2009. The SP-USA also doesn’t have the newsletter in their archives.

    The list is no surprise as many of you said. Also, there is reason for caution –also as many of you said.

    The best thing to do is prepare THEIR RESPONSE:

    1. so what–it’s legal

    2. we are mainstream

    3. you right wing extremist

    4. we’re not as radical as the tea parties

    5. see–in your face (by actions)

    6. we are fully integrated and tolerant–not like the tea parties

    7. we know what’s best for you

    8. try to stop us

    9. so what’s wrong with that?

    10. power to the people!

    etc etc etc

    This was certainly an interesting read, but whether or not a candidate declares himself a liberal/progressive/socialist or a conservative/right-wing/family friendly republican, each voter has the responsibility of checking a candidate’s public stand on issues and voting record. The reason we have a defunct government now is because the population is ignorant, ill-informed, lazy, and negligent.
    Get the facts! Make a stand! Vote!

    So…who is going to apologize to Allen West? He had them pegged over a year ago, and was called all kinds of names for it.

  • Phil Bronner

    Well, #1….people have known for YEARS that the dimwitcRAT party was full of socialists….just look at their party platform! Also…I do believe that it should be necessary to remove the “Honorable” from in front of their names….Honor is something you either have, or don’t..and these people don’t….if they were that proud of their “socialist” status…how come they don’t RUN for office as socialists??? LOL….


    Add Kyrsten Sinema (D)AZ to the list

  • bittman

    I think all of these belong to the Progressive Caucus. So, Progressives = Communists.

  • muslimmustgo

    socialists,progressives,liberals=COMMUNISTS! Count on it! They go by the ideology of socialists because they can’t YET openly embrace communism!! Wait until after the 2014 elections and ,god forbid if they capture the house,they will come out of the closet!

  • muslimmustgo

  • Robert M. Harris

    ???…There’s a reason why the former Soviet Union was called the Union of Soviet Socialists Republic and ran by a bunch of Communists!

  • James C

    How can they be called Progressives if they espouse Socialism? Socialism is a failed ideology from the past. Communism is a failed economic system from the past. Are they so ignorant or stupid to understand that the United States of America owes its success and one time economic world domination to Representative Democracy and Capitalism? They are where they are and have reaped the benefits from living in a free and economically vibrant country and yet they want to take us down the pathway of failure and despair. We need to wake up and rise up and defeat the enemy of freedom and prosperity!


    Progressive has always been an open secret type of word for Communist.

  • Side note – Socialist is merely the last step before Communist.

    Marxist -> Socialist -> Communist

  • annieoakley

    The goal of socialism is COMMUNISM.

    For the GOOD of the NATION !!!

  • jcd0101

    and that includes any so called rinos on the list..
    all must go..

  • jcd0101

    Gee no surprise here
    especially when you have democrats openly
    Admiring mao and stalin
    Wishing they didn’t have to report to the people
    Wishing they could do what boris yeltzin did to his enemies
    he used tanks.. and fired on civilian housing..
    they want that commie power so bad they can taste it..
    these people are EVIL PERIOD

  • trojan1972

    That is a true statement, but they may also try them for treason and hang their (the socialists’) heads by a noose in the public square.

  • Randall Burns

    About 30% of Americans identify positively with the term socialism-but less than 17% of members of congress do. Clearly the goal of the founders to make the house represent a cross section of the public has not been achieved. How would you like to be represented in congress?

  • REOCON smith

    libtart = gay libtard LOL !!!!

  • Dick Durbin is also a member of the Socialist party. I personally found him listed on their membership list before they started hiding it.

  • PStarr

  • Bill Prater

    Yes, it is an old list. There are now well over 100 names on the list.

  • freedom

    I think they should all be removed from office. The reason is the OATH they gave when elected to office. To protect and defend the constitution and it’s citizens from enemies foreign or domestic. Under the constitution we the people ha e the right to physically remove them from office ! They are trying to disarm the law abiding citizens by taking our guns and ammunition from us !

  • fly_raf

    Can anyone think of a country where socialism has worked.

  • keeley1

    These people are not honorable. They are parasites.
