Jun 10, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Kansas City Star

If he manages to keep his seat in Congress, Anthony Weiner would join a handful of political figures who survived what initially looked like a career-ending debacle.And even if the experiences of the likes of Bill Clinton, Barney Frank, David Vitter and others weren't enough, a new poll points to a forgiving constituency.Both factors point to what ...

Weiner is not on trial nor is he under oath, when speaking to the news media. Check on your own state politicians, and let New York voters handle their issues.
Weiner was NOT just a New York problem. He had votes & committee responsibilities that effected all Americans. And that is way too much responsibility to leave in the hands of a socialist state like NY.

Democratic Socialists of Congress: Meet the Members
http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/arti...

Now that Americans are awake and confronting their tyrannical employees in the federal government, who are clearly hell-bent upon forcing a Marxist agenda, it’s time to name names so that the people easily identify who is directly responsible for the biggest assault on American freedom and liberty in US history.

After decades of failed attempts to take over America via their third party initiatives that couldn’t break America’s two party system, leaders of both the Communist Party USA and Socialist Party USA chose a new strategy.

Both being the ultimate “party of the working class stiff,” they joined forces in a new venture that would work within the US two party system, by hijacking control of one of the two primary parties. As the Democrat Party had already spent years identifying itself as the “party of the working class,” engaging in socio-economic class warfare as its primary method for expanding its political power, it was ripe for the hijacking.

Together, Communist Party and Socialist Party leaders established the Democratic Socialists of America, and they share a common ideology which is now the platform and mantra of today’s DNC - CPUSA

Insert the word “Democrats” where “Communists” appears in this statement, and you have the central message of today’s Democrat leadership.

To gain full control of the Democrat Party, DSA leadership established two congressional legislative bodies, headed by DSA/CPUSA/SPUSA members. Today, these are the two congressional bodies in control of congress.

They are the Congressional Progressive Caucus established by Socialist Party member Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and the Congressional Black Caucus established by Communist Party member John Conyers of Michigan.

ALL members of these two congressional committees represent the Democratic Socialists of America, as both committees are the creation of, and operate under the control of DSAUSA.

[continued, part 2 of 2]

If you want to know who is behind the full-court press to nationalize or socialize health care, the auto industry, banking and insurance, here they are…. Is YOUR congress member on these lists?

Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus
http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm...

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus
http://thecongressionalblackcaucus.lee.house....

Every member of these two congressional committees is a problem for every American. To fully understand the related facts, please take the time to study this DSAUSA document - What is Democratic Socialism. Then take a moment to review their current newsletter, The Red Letter to DSA members - http://www.dsausa.org/yds/redletter.html .

If you still have no clue what we are up against, go one step further and take a look at their theactivist.org : designed to attract and indoctrinate the youth of America.

To be sure, they are not the only problem is congress or Washington DC today, but every anti-American policy initiative coming out of Washington DC today, is rooted in this organization and proposed by their members of congress, the members of their two committees.

As American citizens wake up to the reality that their nation, their personal freedom and liberty are under attack on many fronts today, they must focus on the root of that evil, Americans who have lost their faith in freedom and liberty, and bought the false promise of secular socialism and the right of the Fed to confiscate the freedom of one, to purchase the
voting power of another.

Ten minutes of history research will quickly confirm that communism, socialism, Marxism, totalitarianism, are all systems by which the governing few are empowered, not the masses. Even though many Americans have been tricked into thinking that their lives are better off in the hands of Washington DC elitists, the vast majority of Americans
inherently know better!

If your members of congress appear on either of the two member lists above, they ARE part of the “conspiracy” to destroy everything America has ever been, or was ever intended to be. They are opponents of freedom, plain and simple.

Being “democrat” or “black” is not their unforgivable offense. Being black or democrat does not make one un-American or a threat to American freedom. But being a communist or socialists in a position of power, or today, a position of unbridled power, is indeed both un-American and a threat to every American citizen.

Those who speak of democracy as a 'socialism' clearly owns stocks and bonds and support globalism to go exploit all the poor people all over the world thru wall street where the investment bankers and insurance companies are wicked criminals buying and selling back and forth to each other to raise prices and starve people at the same time. I pray that GOD destroys satan's den of his wicked workers on wall street. No wonder planes were driven thru it. Absolutely righteous and a warning from GOD to stop hurting his people....but atheists live in denial. That is satan's work.
Globalists are antichrist enemeies of America that hates GOD. May they receive ten-fold of the wickedness they have given.
