This may be one of the most important articles New Zeal has ever posted. Please read it. Digest it. Act on it.
This post proves a point I have long made: that Democratic Congressmen are willing to collude with marxists in order to promote socialist legislation and to influence the political direction of the United States.
This is how the modern Democratic Party actually works – in partnership (often junior partnership, at that) with hard core marxists.
Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D MI), chair of the powerful House Judiciary Committee has been caught on tape, meeting with members of the U.S.’s largest marxist organization Democratic Socialists of America.
The tape clearly shows Conyers treating the marxists as friends. He continually refers to the gathering as “we”, as he urges the comrades to rally behind his “beloved 44th president”, Barack Obama.
The tape, posted on the D.S.A. Vimeo site, was filmed before the recent One Nation Rally in Washington DC, and shows Conyers speaking to a meeting of D.S.A. members in what appears to be an hotel room.
The website clearly states that this is a D.S.A. meeting and Conyers is introduced to the gathering by D.S.A. National director Frank Llewellyn. Prominent Boston D.S.A. member David Duhalde appears on the right, behind Llewellyn, wearing a beard, black T shirt and a cap.
In the first few seconds, Conyers is introduced by Frank Llewellyn as the “only congressman endorsed by Martin Luther King”.
Llewellyn then notes Conyers’ “long support for HR 676, the single payer Bill that this organization [D.S.A.] has long supported”.
, Barack Obama
D.S.A. has indeed “long supported HR 676″, which sprang from the “single payer” health care movement midwived by Chicago physician and D.S.A. member Quentin Young – a close personal friend of both John Conyers and President Barack Obama.
At about 34 seconds Llewellyn states, “many might not know that John is in the process of introducing sweeping legislation to address the jobs crisis – which is certainly one of the most important crises we face and one of the reasons why we’re all here today.”
At 60 seconds Conyers starts talking, addressing Frank Llewellyn by name and then says,
“Its good to know that a lot of my Michigan and Detroit and Grosse Point people are here. David Green, and Dave and Herman and probably others.”
David Green is a leader of both Michigan and national D.S.A. Green visited Cuba in 2009 and proved his marxism with this statement in the Spring 2007 issue of D.S.A.’s Democratic Left.
“What distinguishes socialists from other progressives is the theory of surplus value. According to Marx, the secret of surplus value is that workers are a source of more value than they receive in wages. The capitalist is able to capture surplus value through his ownership of the means of production, his right to purchase labor as a commodity, his control over the production process, and his ownership of the final product. Surplus value is the measure of capital’s exploitation of labor
Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production. Our immediate task is to limit the capitalist class’s prerogatives in the workplace…
In the short run we must at least minimize the degree of exploitation of workers by capitalists. We can accomplish this by promoting full employment policies, passing local living wage laws, but most of all by increasing the union movement’s power…
The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) provides an excellent organizing tool (i.e., tactic) through which we can pursue our socialist strategy while simultaneously engaging the broader electorate on an issue of economic populism.
This is one of John Conyers’ “people”. Coincidentally Conyers is also a big fan of the EFCA.
After a “new agey” rave about the “oneness” of everything (cut out of this video), Conyers thanks the gathering for coming to the march and at 1:30 minutes goes on to say:
“This is an important event, that we don’t doubt will be played down and misinterpreted by the corporate media…We understand the significance of it. We know that when unions, political ideology, clergy, labor, civil rights come together… and just people that are progressive enough to see in this one World concept, that we’re all in this together, it makes certain things easy to understand where we’re coming from.”
At 2:25 minutes, Conyers talks about “peace” and Dennis Kucinich.
“Overriding it all is the quest for peace in the world…and I am firmly supporting Congressman Dennis Kucinich’s measure that would make a Department of Peace in the United States Federal government.” (applause)
John Conyers was once an affiliate of the Soviet front World Peace Council. Like Kucinich, Conyers also has a long history with the Communist Party USA, which has consistently advocated such measures.
At 4:20 minutes, Conyers moves on to the “question of my beloved 44th president of the United States.”
Conyers criticizes America’s war in Afghanistan and how “we” need to “make it clear to him, through all the usual means of communication, including pickets and protests….there probably isn’t anybody above the 10th grade who doesnt know that you cannot win a war in Afghanistan.” (laughter).
At 7:35 minutes Conyers says of Obama;
“I respect him, I support him… I say that all against the backdrop, of the fact that in 2012, there is a highly organized effort to make sure that he is a one term president.
This started even before he was sworn in. It’s grown… I only mention the Tea Party, because it is small and dismissible, but there are much more serious and affluent sources behind this effort to interfere with a re-election campaign of Obama… I’ve got to ensure he is re-elected 2 years from now. That calls for some balancing, but not a whole lot from where I stand.”
At 6.10 minutes Conyers goes on to deal with how those assembled need to help Obama.
“I see that us making him more cooperative with our plans is going to strengthen him and not weaken him… (applause) And to have this press secretary of his denouncing the left is an automatically dismissible act, if I were president…
The whole point is that, trashing progressives and the left, and at the same time watching your ratings go down – gee… what’s so difficult about figuring that out?… Whose job do you think it is to get him straightened out and get him on the right track? Ours! Ours!“ (applause)
D.S.A. has tried to publicly distance itself from Obama in recent times, though they have a twenty seven year history with the President. Even Conyers has publicly criticized the President.
Clearly, John Conyers understands he is among friends, who are just as pro-Obama as he is. In private, Conyers and D.S.A. are right behind their man.
Like Obama, John Conyers has a long history with D.S.A.
- In 2003 John Conyers was a keynote speaker at the D.S.A. national conference in Detroit – with 2008 Obama Black Advisory Council member Cornel West and the first journalist to promote obama on the national stage, the Washington Post’s Harold Meyerson.
- In 2005 D.S.A’.s Democratic Left -Spring edition, called “Congressman John Conyers (a key D.S.A. ally in Congress)…”
The real secret of contemporary U.S. Politics is this:
Under today’s Democratic Party, much of the legislation they push for is not made by Democrats. It is actually formulated by organizations close to D.S.A. and the Communist Party. It is then infiltrated into Congress by socialist sympathizers like John Conyers and his comrades, in the more than eighty strong, D.S.A. co-founded Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Socialized health care, the grossly mis-named Employee Free Choice Act, the current push to “normalize” relations with Cuba, even the campaign for a national holiday in honor of D.S.A. and the Communist Party’s best friend Cesar Chavez, are all communist/socialist initiatives.
If this sounds far fetched, remember that in most U.S. states the Democratic Party is almost totally dependent on labor unions for manpower and money.
Since D.S.A. member John Sweeney became president of the AFL-CIO in 1995, the once anti-communist U.S. labor movement has come under near complete marxist control.
Barack Obama, John Sweeney
He who pays the piper, calls the tune.
The Democrats simply put a “respectable” face on policies originated by tiny, but hugely influential marxist sects.
Think of it this way. Just as the Mafia once used “respectable” front-men to control Las Vegas casinos, the marxists use “respectable” Democrats, kept in line with labor union “muscle” to control your Houses of Congress.
That’s how it works America.
If you don’t start throwing the Democrats out of office come November, your children may inherit a country permanently ruled by these people.
