Accuracy in Media

While the liberal media write about white nationalists supporting Donald J. Trump, the Communist Party (CPUSA) has been broadcasting its support for the national Democratic Party and both of its candidates. But for some reason, our media have failed to take notice.

Since 1980, when Ronald Reagan was elected President, the CPUSA—which was then funded by Moscow—has been organizing what it calls an “all-people’s front” against the “extreme right,” and it usually depends on the Democratic Party as its preferred electoral vehicle. John Bachtell, national chair of the Communist Party USA, explains, “This battle has been waged over 35 years through election cycles, in the legislative arena, and in the battle to sway public opinion.”

The CPUSA endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008 and his reelection in 2012. This year, party members are involved in the presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), but are prepared to support former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if she is the eventual nominee.

While Trump is rightly questioned about support for his campaign from such figures as David Duke, the former KKK leader, the open and admitted involvement of communists in the Democratic Party gets completely ignored by the press.

The CPUSA is based on Marxist doctrine, which calls for the abolition of private property and the overthrow of global capitalism. What is called “Cultural Marxism” seeks to eliminate traditional adherence to Judeo-Christian values and silence those in favor of traditional families and those who recognize male and female differences.

The CPUSA is associated with the International Meeting Of Communist And Workers’ Parties, which represents the international communist movement and includes the Communist Party of Russia. In its contribution to the 2014 meeting, the CPUSA combined elements of traditional Marxism with the cultural version, urging action on behalf of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) communities, support for a “democratized and demilitarized U.S. foreign policy,” and protection of the environment “through a massive movement against our domination by the fossil fuel industry…”

In foreign affairs, the CPUSA has also called for the abolition of NATO.

In the current election campaign, the CPUSA is firmly on the side of the Democrats. In a story about the “Super Tuesday” presidential primaries, the party newspaper, the People’s World, announced that while the GOP was pushing “powerlessness,” both Democratic candidates were promoting “empowerment” for the people. This is Marxist jargon for integrating Marxist demands into Democratic Party policies.

Although the liberal media tend to highlight differences between Senator Sanders and Mrs. Clinton, the communists say there is more that unites than divides them.

The Communists dislike Trump because of his “authoritarian” tendencies and criticism of immigrants. However, while the communists claim that Trump “glorifies militarism abroad,” they have not explicitly condemned his foreign policy views, which tend to be on the isolationist side. Trump has been critical of NATO, which began as an anti-Soviet alliance, and is supportive of Russian foreign policy interests in Europe and the Middle East.

More recently, communist writer Larry Rubin expressed the Communist Party view that Sanders and Clinton have to do more to keep workers from defecting to Trump.

Ultimately, Rubin argued that in order to ensure a victory over the Republicans in November, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign should “be ready to inherit the grassroots organizational models and far reaching proposals that have attracted so many working people and millennials to Bernie Sanders’ political revolution,” and that the Sanders campaign should “be ready to unite with the Clinton effort.”

In this way, Marxists of various persuasions could take more important roles in the Clinton for president campaign.

In an interview, “Why America Is Warming To Socialism,” national CPUSA chair John Bachtell mentioned the Sanders appeal and emphasized that “democracy would be at the center” of the growth of socialism in the U.S.

In a separate article, Bachtell warned against Sanders following a third party option in November, and urged communists to continue working through the Democratic Party. While Mrs. Clinton is perceived as “more hawkish on foreign policy,” he said, she “is no neo-con.” The term “neo-con” is often used to disparage advocates of U.S. global engagement and military intervention. “She supports diplomatic efforts like the Iran nuclear deal and the normalization of relations with Cuba,” Bachtell said about Clinton.

Even on domestic issues, Clinton is acceptable to the Marxists because she “is susceptible to pressure from below” from Marxist agitators and their organizations, he said.

He went on to suggest that CPUSA members are currently working inside the Democratic Party by supporting Sanders. The Sanders program, he said, “addresses the needs of the country and is closest to our own. My guess is most of our members support the Sanders campaign.”

Going beyond the Sanders campaign, however, he said the Democratic Party as a whole includes “a substantial current of self-described democratic socialists” and other activists who “exert influence and hold leadership positions at various levels. They still see the Democratic Party as the most viable means to advance their agendas within the party system at this moment.”

As suggested by its endorsements of Obama in 2008 and 2012, the CPUSA has been very pleased with the Obama administration. The communists believe that Obama, who was influenced at an early age by CPUSA figure Frank Marshall Davis, has transformed America into a socialist state through Obamacare and other initiatives, and has changed U.S. foreign policy by establishing relations with anti-American regimes in Cuba and Iran.

Earlier this year, in response to Obama’s State of the Union address, the People’s World praised the first black president for projecting “a bold vision for a more socially and economically just nation while appealing to the hopes of the American people.” The paper said, “President Obama recounted historic achievements of the administration and advanced the challenges with full knowledge of the powerful forces arrayed in opposition.” Those achievements were said to include “creation of millions of new jobs, normalization of relations with Cuba, the Iran nuclear deal and Obamacare and extension of health care to 18 million people.”

Looking ahead, the communists are counting on a “radical restructuring of the economy as advocated by Sen. Bernie Sanders,” and “a new peaceful, non-interventionist foreign policy” that includes “elimination of weapons of mass destruction,” the closing of U.S. military bases, and “radically downsizing the US military.”

Such a plan, of course, would invite more Russian aggression in Europe and the Middle East, and encourage Chinese Communist expansion in Asia and the Pacific.

We eagerly anticipate U.S. media personalities questioning Sanders and Clinton about the support they are receiving from the CPUSA. Of course, any journalist who dares to raise the issue runs the risk of being perceived as a McCarthyite.

    Communists prefer the Democratic Party. Racists, secessionists, bigots and morons prefer the Republican Party. This is why Hilary Clinton will be the next president. LOLOLOL GOD, I can’t wait until November to hear you people whine and cry.

  • ?? Kermit Hates Commies ??

    I can’t wait to hear the whining and hair pulling over the next 20 years as the right wing bigots lose the POTUS, SCOTUS, House and Senate. It’s going to be unbelievable, even better than all the crybullying over Obama !! Republicans will be hiding under rocks.

    “the psychological shock when they will see in future what the beautiful society of EQUALITY and social justice means in practice, obviously they will revolt. They will be very unhappy frustrated people, and Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the ranks of dissenters; dissidents. Unlike the present United States there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America.” – Yuri Besmenov, (talking about you useful idiots)

  • RMThoughts

    It’s time for the “movement” to make a choice, Bernie, Hillary or Trump

    The “movement” needs to accept that Trump is the Right now by both popular mandate and the collapse of establishment candidates, or you can cast your lot with the left and literally betray every last thing you’ve claimed to support, thus exposing yourselves as the frauds you are. At least under Trumpism, there will be an obstacle to a block liberal voters immigrating to the United States.

    How’s that for a deal?

    Whatever decision conservative pundits do decide to make, it isn’t likely to matter. Their influence was clearly overestimated relative to that of nationalists. Nationalism is rising across the entire West. The time of the globalist movement conservatives is gone.

    Everything you wanted wasl dependent on having a state intelligent and muscular enough to resist subversion and protect its national character. In the post 1960s era, every principle but identity was intellectually fought for and defended, and so conservatives lost again and again because they refused to recognize the new yet eternal rules. Results matter more than theories.

    Sanders supporters saying they would rather vote for Trump than Hillary.

  • Thomas Riggins

    I believe you are incorrect in saying the CPUSA thinks Obama has transformed the U.S. into a socialist state. That happy day is still far off in the future.

  • “The communists believe that Obama, who was influenced at an early age by CPUSA figure Frank Marshall Davis, has transformed America into a socialist state through Obamacare and other initiatives, and has changed U.S. foreign policy by establishing relations with anti-American regimes in Cuba and Iran.”

    Really? Exactly WHICH “communists” believe this? Please provide verifiable references from CPUSA documents.

    Do YOU actually believe that America is now a “socialist state”? This is absurd! America, and virtually all other modern countries, is a mixed economy.

    America is not even a “democratic socialist” state comparable to those in Europe, much less a Marxist socialist state, which requires government OWNERSHIP of the means of production and distribution!

    We may move left or right on the mixed economy spectrum, but we remain “mixed” as long as capitalism exists under government regulation.

    The only people who believe Kincaid’s nonsense are NOT Communists, but right wing nutjobs, like him. “Communism” remains one of his “BOO” words to scare his readers.

  • Democracy is the answer to “How would the USA be transformed into a socialist nation ?” Ask Marx

    Your going to be in a state of depression for years to come. Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States. He will go for 8 years and I bet they will want him for another 4 years after that. With Republicans holding the House and Senate all through Donald trumps reign, They will change the law that he can run again. It will be so funny watching you weasels squirm with no power anymore.

    I could tell the communist in Hillary Obama and Sanders, America is sick of this, Only the losers and criminals are for Communism. That’s Hillary’s Base People just getting out of Prison, People waiting to go to prison and the people that just have not been caught yet

    How many million have been killed by the Communists?

  • IronChefSandwiches

    In the US? Not sure, but not very many. Your logic is facile and pointless.

    Here’s one for you…How many millions have been killed by the Christians? See how dumb that question was?

  • Michael_IL

    Communism is responsible for the death of 94 million in the twentieth century alone. The only greater ideological death toll has been at the hands of Islamists.

    I know of none in the US, but then the Communists are not in charge.

    Every political movement that has resulted in the death and suffering of countless millions has originated from the left, something your side is unwilling to take ownership of always caught up in the belief that the idea has just not been implemented properly.

    Your capacity to willfully ignore these historic facts is staggering, but not surprising.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Your capacity to not see the patently obvious, which is that communism has about as much weight here in the US as unicorns, is staggering. You’re a blithering idiot. Oh, and that 94 million death number is laughably false.


    Ever notice how most who are clamoring for socialism or outright communism to come to America have never lived in a socialist or a communist country?

  • Michael_IL

    Plank No. 15 of CPUSA’s stated goals:

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    CPUSA has just about completely taken over the Democrat Party.

    Of Barrack Obama Sam Webb stated, “We now have not simply a friend, but a people’s advocate in the White House,”

    You sir are either a liar. a fool or useful idiot. Take your pick,

  • IronChefSandwiches

    OF COURSE they say that, you blithering moron! If Obama is such a freaking Communist, please explain to me the following:

    1) The stock market is at record highs.

    2) American-based multi-nationals, especially the fossil fuel industry, are currently experiencing the highest corporate profits IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

    3) The for-profit health insurance industry is still destroying the US health care industry with their obscene profits EVEN WITH Obamacare in place. It did NOTHING to stop them.

    4) REAL taxes (meaning the taxes they actually pay) are ridiculously low for our wealthy and corporations. Tax havens, loopholes, and wholesale giveaways are still the norm.

    Does THIS sound like anything even CLOSE to a Communist country?

    I could go on. But I won’t. You’re a fool and a useful idiot. You see poor people who can’t find work using food stamps and think you’re in Stalin’s Russia. You see tens of millions of people with access to health care and think it’s a bad thing. You’re hopeless.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Oh. Well. If Yuri Besmenov says it…. Dips**t

  • Michael_IL

    Ok, I’ll take the bait though I believe the effort as futile as is your propensity for being obtuse.

    1. After years of Quantitative Easing, (that’s Fed speak for printing fiat money out of thin air) the value of the US dollar has been devalued. The stock market uptick is in large part a response to the dilution in the value of the dollar. Besides the stock market has never been an accurate barometer of the health of the economy. The GDP is, and its been stuck at 2% or less since 2008.

    2. Multi-national business is fleeing the country with its highest corporate tax rate on the planet at a record pace. Lower taxes does affect a company’s bottom line along with lower labor rates in countries they are fleeing too.

    3. No-shit Sherlock, ObamaCare was never designed to fix the health care industry but a collection of requisites composed by disparate sources and compiled in one piece of Legislation. It was never debated, dissected so there was no synergy designed between different components of the Bill which is why it is a complete and utter failure by every metric.

    4. On this point we can agree. In fact donors to the Clintons have benefited hugely from dodging taxes and hiding wealth offshore as revealed in the Panama Papers.

    Lastly, the Communists are notorious for cozying up with business (crony capitalism) dating back to Stalin’s relationship with Armand Hammer.

    I know some of this is news to you, so deeply entrenched is your belief system.

  • Richard Hellstrom

    Capitalism means you have a free market – right ? – Anybody want to tell me or explain to me our market and how it works – US Senators’ average annual stock performance beat the market average by approximately 12.3%, while stock purchases made by corporate insiders on average outperform the market by 7.4% and stock portfolios of the average US household underperform the market by 1.5%. – Now who’s controlling the market ? Woodward and Bernstein reported that they inserted a Black Operational government in the 70’s ! Is playing mind games on our citizens to dictate the social order another form of capitalism or democracy ? First off you have to convince us that America isn’t a communist country because as far as I can tell it’s the same process – The government controls the social order and the financial order –

    A King died for your sin. Not just a King, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords took your place by humiliating Himself, shedding His blood and bearing the punishment that you deserve on the cross of Calvary. The Lord Jesus Christ bore the wrath of God in your place, that you might be sanctified through faith in His blood. Quit playing games with God. Admit to God that you are a sinner, that your life has been nothing but a filthy wicked mess. Repent and call upon the Lord Jesus Christ to save you. Before you spend eternity frying like a sausage in hell.

    How did I lose the argument? Anyone with half a brain knows that the joke is on the communist supporter. Just ask Trotsky.

  • Enchanted

    read saul alinsky’s eight radical rules to a socialist state. obama is going down them, one by one. He has almost accomplished rule number one, which by socialist standards is the most important – control healthcare and you control the people.

  • Enchanted

    How many people were killed by hitler? how many people have been killed by muslim terrorists? Those are questions that are more relevant.

  • Do you actually believe that the Affordable Care Act “almost” controls healthcare?

  • Non sequitur. Communism requires the ELIMINATION of private enterprise. The number of people on welfare is irrelevant.

  • John Doe

    It goes hand in hand does it not?

  • Enchanted

    obamacare was meant to fail, not succeed. Then the government could take over, have a one-payer system similar to Canada and the UK.

  • No really. In fact, in the USSR “Those who refused to work, study or serve in another way risked being criminally charged with social parasitism (Russian: ??????????, ????????).” See

  • That does not answer the question. Once again: Do you actually believe that the Affordable Care Act “almost” controls healthcare?

    FYI: The fact that so many Americans are uncovered proves that the Government is far from controlling healthcare in the United States. Even with UHC, there are three different UHC systems: single payer, two-tier, and mandatory insurance, according to Forbes (see ).

  • Enchanted

    It is one step toward taking control, it is not the entire plan. What I am saying is that obamacare was set up to fail. If allowed to continue to fail, then there will be no choice but for the government to take over, and make their own one-payer insurance ‘company’ where they control who lives and dies. As I said before, just like in Canada and in the UK.

    I read the law, and it is scary especially for those who are elderly, terminally ill, or have congenital diseases. As obama once said during a town hall meeting, he couldn’t understand why a 95 year old mother who had surgery wasn’t just given a pain pill and allowed to die. (he told this on national television to her daughter) The aforementioned are a burden to the health care system, along with those on medicare and medicaid.

    Read alinsky, who by the way was hillary’s personal mentor and you will understand the path that has been taken these past years and why.

    God help us if the people do not wake up.

  • “One step” is not “almost.” Evidently your statement was hyperbole rather than a rational assessment.

    Further, Obamacare is at most the first step: mandatory insurance. Single-payer is FAR beyond mandatory insurance. No “almost” to it at all!

  • Enchanted

    If obamacare fails, what is left? How long will it take to recover? what will happen in the meantime? The government will take over. I am not naive. obama has his plan and hillary if elected will continue to destroy our country. If you don’t care about yourself, think about your children and their children.

  • As a matter of fact I am THRILLED (perhaps even “enchanted”)with my single-payer healthcare provided by Uncle Sam! Many others are as well. I am an Air Force retiree!

  • Trump? Not likely. Hillary now has a ten-point lead that may increase whenever Trump does something stupid.

  • Bill

    Liberals are truly the scum of the earth

  • Enchanted

    The federal government which includes DoD was exempted from having to participate in the obamacare program, didn’t you know that?

  • Of course! Our coverage exceeds Obamacare standards! All Americans should have healthcare of at least this quality.

  • Jerry

    There is a lot of Criminals voting Communist this year. But not as many as there is Americans. Your depression is setting in now. That 10 point lead is not right and you know it

  • As of August 25, the Quinnipiac poll puts Clinton 10 points ahead. The Reuters poll puts her 7 points ahead. See
    As Trump continues to put his foot in his mouth, we can expect to see other conservatives (such as Ann Coulter) withdraw support.

  • Jerry

    Again, Hillary can try it again in four years. New Republicans are signing up to vote at alarming rates in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. Hillary is a Criminal and will be going to jail. The only people voting for Hitlery are Criminals, Parolees, and the people that just have not been caught yet
