"Dear Comrade Kim Jong Il...
With his leadership [Kim Il Sung], the Korean people defeated the Japanese colonial occupation and soon after brought about the first defeat of the U.S. imperialist military machine. ...
Workers World Party values our close, comradely relations with the Workers Party of Korea very highly. We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. ..."

Photo of Charlie Rangel at the podium of a March 19th, 2005 Workers World Party/Troops Out Now rally in Harlem, New York. The occasion marked the 2nd anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. The photo comes from the ("We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. ...") Workers World Party website.
Also appearing at this "peace" rally with the demonRat Charlie Rangel, now chairman of The House Ways and Means Committee, were Saddam Hussein lawyer, Ramsey Clark and convicted terrorist enabler/attorney, Lynne Stewart. Clark, with Workers World Party, started up that other 'peace' group, A.N.S.W.E.R. Clark also heads the International Action Center and was actually once Attorney General of the United States under democrat LBJ.

Behind the Placards
The odd and troubling origins of todays anti-war movement
David Corn, November 07, 2002
"Officially, the organizer of the Washington demonstration was International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism). But ANSWER is run by WWP [Workers World Party] activists, to such an extent that it seems fair to dub it a WWP front. Several key ANSWER officials -- including spokesperson Brian Becker -- are WWP members. Many local offices for ANSWERs protest were housed in WWP offices. Earlier this year, when ANSWER conducted a press briefing, at least five of the 13 speakers were WWP activists. They were each identified, though, in other ways, including as members of the International Action Center.
The IAC, another WWP offshoot, was a key partner with ANSWER in promoting the protest. It was founded by Ramsey Clark, attorney general for President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s."
From David Horowitz's
PROFILE: PARTY FOR SOCIALISM AND LIBERATION (PSL)
* Marxist-Leninist antiwar group that calls for revolution in the United States
* Operates in tandem with International ANSWER
* Expressly supports anti-Israel and anti-American terrorism
The Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) was founded in 2004, following an organizational fissure within the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party (WWP) that resulted in three WWP member branches -- based respectively in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C -- breaking away to form their own group. Openly allied with the International ANSWER Coalition (which is intimately tied to Ramsey Clark's International Action Center), PSL has also established branches in New York City (in Harlem), Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, and West Chester, Pennsylvania.
A proponent of "revolutionary Marxism," PSLs general raison detre is opposition to capitalism, which it defines as "the system in which all wealth and power is held by a tiny group of billionaires and their state," and the promotion of "socialism." The organization regards "U.S. capitalism" as the underlying cause of the war in Iraq (and all other wars) and regards "revolution" as the only viable alternative.
Though nominally an independent group, PSL mostly acts in concert with International ANSWER. A list of campaigns and events on PSLs website provides a summary of demonstrations and protests organized by ANSWER. PSL is staffed largely by ANSWER activists, among whom is PSLs leader, Brian Becker. Other PSL members include ANSWER activist Gloria La Riva, a former gubernatorial candidate in California and a longtime apologist for communist Cuba, as well as several ANSWER coordinators and organizers, among them Saul Kanowitz, Muna Coobtee, and Caneisha Mills.
PSL is a strong supporter of Fidel Castro's Cuban government and the socialist "Bolivarian Revolution" led by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. It also holds a favorable view of Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution in 1960s China.

The RCP calls for the armed overthrow of the U.S. government...
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us or rwor.org) :
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":

HAVANA Signaling its willingness to discuss improved relations with the Obama administration, Cuba on Tuesday granted three visiting members of the Congressional Black Caucus the first meeting with Fidel Castro by American officials since he fell ill in 2006.
"Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., current head of the 42-member caucus, said at a news conference in Washington after the group's return that lawmakers met for nearly two hours with Fidel Castro and found him 'very healthy, very energetic, very clear thinking.'
Rep. Laura Richardson, D-Calif., who also met Fidel with Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., said Castro 'looked directly into our eyes' and asked how Cuba could help Obama in his efforts to change the course of U.S. foreign policy. Richardson said she had the impression that 82-year-old Fidel wants to see changes in U.S.-Cuba relations in his lifetime.
Raul Castro, added Lee, 'said everything was on the table.' ..."

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
PROFILE: BOBBY RUSH:
* Democratic Member of Congress
* Member of the radical Progressive Caucus
* In 1968, went AWOL from the U.S. Army
* Co-founder of the Illinois branch of the Black Panther Party
* In 1969, served six months in jail for an illegal weapons conviction
* Advocates reparations for African Americans
"Bobby Rush has described his involvement with the Black Panthers as part of his maturation process, as a youthful indiscretion that he abandoned immediately after Hampton's death. He described his role mostly as running the Black Panther Party's Free Breakfast for Children program.
But Bobby Rush served six months in jail for a 1969 illegal weapons conviction and, even after his release, in 1971 his comrades were still describing him as the 'Deputy Minister of Defense' for the Black Panther Party in Illinois. In 1992 the socialist magazine In These Times praised fledgling congressional candidate Rush, writing that he 'has continued to support progressive policies and has never disavowed his Panther past...."
From the Maoist Internationist Movement:
[1960s/original] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
PROFILE: BARBARA LEE:
* Democratic Member of Congress, co-chair of the radical Progressive Caucus
* Former agent of Black Panther leader and convicted killer Huey Newton
* Collaborated with the Marxist dictatorship of Grenada to deceive the U.S. Congress
* Voted against using military force against terrorists following the 9/11 attacks
* Has consistently voted against U.S.-led military action, regardless of circumstances
"While attending Mills College in Oakland, California during the early 1970s, Lee worked as a volunteer for the local chapter of the Black Panther Party's Community Learning Center. She also worked on the 1973 Oakland mayoral campaign of Panther co-founder Bobby Seale, and she served as a confidential aide to the Panthers' 'Minister of Defense,' Huey Newton."
In the 1980s she worked as a staff member for the radical Left Democratic congressman Ron Dellums, who headed the House Sub-Committee on Military Installations. Aided by Lee, Dellums used his authority to impede U.S. foreign policy with regard to the Communist dictatorship of Grenada, where many Soviet bloc advisers, in conjunction with Cuban military personnel, were busy constructing an airport capable of accommodating Soviet military planes. As the ranking Democrat member of the House Armed Services Committee, Dellums traveled to Grenada to conduct an on-site "fact-finding" tour and on his return whitewashed the Grenadian dictatorship:
"Based on my personal observations, discussion and analysis of the new international airport under construction in Grenada, it is my conclusion that this project is specifically now and has always been for the purpose of economic development and is not for military use . It is my thought that it is absurd, patronizing and totally unwarranted for the United States Government to charge that this airport poses a military threat to the United States' national security."
What legislators did not know at the time was that Dellums, before testifying to Congress, had previously submitted, through his emissary Barabara Lee, his prepared report (about the airport) to Grenada's Communist dictator for the latter's approval and/or revisions. The minutes of a Politburo meeting attended by that dictator and his military command stated:
"Barbara Lee is here presently and has brought with her a report on the international airport that was done by Ron Dellums. They have requested that we look at the document and suggest any changes we deem necessary. They will be willing to make the changes."
When Dellums retired in 1998, Barbara Lee won his vacated congressional seat and has held it ever since.
In June 2002, Lee joined 30 fellow members of Congress (including such notables as John Conyers, Jesse Jackson, Jr., Cynthia McKinney, and Maxine Waters) in filing a federal lawsuit to block President George W. Bush from withdrawing the U.S. from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty which had been signed in 1972 with the old Soviet Union. The lawsuit named Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld as defendants.
Author and political commentator David Horowitz has called Lee "an anti-American communist who supports America's enemies and has actively collaborated with them in their war against America."
You rock! May I borrow this information (giving you proper credit of course) for a future blog post?
Definitely. That goes for anyone.
Cool - I was thinking the same thing.
Crap! That’s a HUGE list...
But - The DHS says it's right wing groups that are a threat!?!?

Left-wing extremists at D.U. (Democratic Underground) called for the "communistic-islamic" overthrow of U.S. in 2004

"...Any weapons we resort to must be "real" weapons not pistols. i.e. Rifles and shotguns. Due to concerns of re-supply (you have to plan for a long battle) such weapons should be limited to very small number of different rounds."
"if it is decided to fight, be prepared to fight, bring a backpack, entrenching tool, tent, and other equipment of an Infantrymen. You will need it for Bush and his supporters decides it is better to fight than to accept the will of the people, the fight to overthrow them will be a long fight."
Which list? You mean the Revolutionary Communist Party/"World Can't Wait" list of endorsers in post 1?
>Which list? You mean the Revolutionary Communist Party/”World Can’t Wait” list of endorsers in post 1?
Ah, you got me it is a list of lists, technically.... but still, there’s more reference materiel cited for this than that DHS/I&A report.
we are being taken over by radicals right now and many either sit down and do nothing or they couldn’t care less
this country will be taken over by a regime that he might even get rid of the term limits like chavez
Here's another of "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan with Code Pinko...
Code Pink 'Bundles' for Barack, 4/14/2008
"The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [Jodie Evans] has bundled more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money."
Revolution interview with ("Peace Mom") Cindy Sheehan: October 29, 2005:
['Revolution' is the official newspaper of the Revolutionary Communist Party]
From National Public Radio (NPR):
August 29, 2006
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been visiting countries such as China, Iran and Russia as part of an effort to build a 'strategic alliance' of interests not beholden to the United States. He considers the United States his arch enemy.":
July 29, 2006
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":
look Ayers knew that by using force he could no longer take this country over.
They then went out and saw this young kid, they prepared him and they got him into their way
They primed him for the big time all these years.
it is no coincidence that the media went overboard about him at that convention when he was noticed,. behind the scenes they were shutting down opponents, look at how he got his seat.
They the got him on the national scene and that was it.
they controlled the media and they got what they wanted
This is more than obama doing his radical agenda this is a leftist regime who tried to use force.
they knew it could not work, just like Hitler
they knew they had to get in on the inside and they did.
Soros money, AYERS PREPARING HIM AND THE THE MOVE ON AND acorn WERE AND ARE THE FOOT SOLDIERS
We are looking at an overthrow of this country by a radical group who have been planning this for years...
He was impressionable, Ayers spotted him and with the help of the likes of Soros they went about their plan to change this country forever
We have to get this country back on track, for they know that once we are in so much debt we will never have the power to do anything at all.
How do we do it , simple we have to beat them by elections and information
how do we get info out when he has the media
me telling as many people as possible is not doing it.
ADs can be done with Obama saying certain things and those things have to be pointed out
for instance when he calls for a civilian security force to match the military the person on the AD needs to ask what is this why has the media not asked this
If we do that and use ADs they need to use Obama voice for instance he says Govt needs to spend more
then the person on the D needs to say well if I have no money I do not spend so why does Obama think he should spend others money when they have no money?
we have to do this in a way where we use himself against himself and make it on a level where peple can understand
the OP is useless At getting the message out and there fore sites like this with the help of money and volunteers needs to come together and form a strategy
sorry for the long rant and statement
GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS
We definitely need more large media outlets like Fox News. Given the enormous success of Fox I can’t understand why some wealthy business types don’t start up more such stations. We also need many more conservatives entering the teaching profession. And simply more regular folks armed with facts and information to instruct the next generation on what is good about America, and bad about communism and socialism.
You’re very welcome. :)
Lol! Fact is, there is a lot more info like this on left-wing extremist groups than for right-wing extremist groups because there are a lot more left-wing extremist groups out there. Left-wing extremist groups also have a lot more influence on public opinion and elections than right-wing extremist groups do. You'd be hard-pressed to find a prominent republican in bed with any right-wing extremist groups. But I can fill an encyclopedia with democrat connections to left-wing extremist groups.
Whew! I made myself hungry with that rant! Think I'll go make myself some chicken wings! :)
Thanks very much for the post/homepage, ETL. Anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-life collectives/individuals...are likely to...or have joined forces.
You’re welcome. Glad to be contributing.
