World Tribune reports, A top communist defector is warning of an unprecedented alliance between the Democratic Party and the Communist Party, reflected in the CPUSAs endorsement of Barack Obama for president in 2008 and the partys continued support for Democratic Party policies. But is this warning going to be too hot to handle for the media? And the Republicans? An unprecedented "alliance" or institutional mandate ?
Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, highest-ranking official ever to have defected from the former Soviet Union says in an article for PJMedia that any doubt that the Democratic and the Communist parties had secretly joined forces was erased in 2009, when Van Jones, part of a left fringe of declared communists, became the White Houses green jobs czar. Van Jones is but one of many, and that fails to count hundreds of of thousands of IRS, EPA, and DoJ facilitators.
Pacepa, who served as a top aide in the Romanian communist regime, tells Accuracy in Media, The Democratic Party has become dangerously infected with the Marxism virus. I recognize the symptoms because I once lived through them, and I believe it is my obligation as an American citizen to help the conservative movement to prevent any further spread of Marxism in my adopted country. We're now at stage four. A bit tardy, but a welcomed assessment.
He adds that he is personally convinced that Obama is a Marxist. Our conclusion as well thank you.
CPUSA (Co-pus-ta), published on its website once, a list of past and present United States politicians (100% of them were in the Democrat Party) who support the platform of the Communist Party of the United States of America. I believe in 2008, the CPUSA website "buried or burned" the page from its website. However the page was "saved" by another website in Acrobat pdf format, Alas I have lost track of the website which has the list. I'll try doing a web search if anyone is interested in this topic, and post the results here. I believe the document supports the position of Lt Gen Ion Pacepa.
I like to pronounce CPUSA - Co-PUS-ta ~ it sounds like the word 'Cabbage' in some Slavic languages, like Russian.

Keith Alexander, the general in charge of the National Security Agency, told ABC News on Sunday that intelligence revelations by fugitive contractor Edward Snowden had "caused irreversible and significant damage to our country and to our allies."
But no worries, President Obama seems to think it's no big deal. "I have not called [Chinese] President Xi personally or [Russian] President Putin personally" about the case, Mr. Obama said on Thursday in Senegal.
And why not? "Number one, I shouldn't have to," Mr. Obama said. "Number two, we've got a whole lot of business that we do with China and Russia, and I'm not going to have one case of a suspect who we're trying to extradite suddenly being elevated to the point where I've got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues." Oh, and he doesn't want to "be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker."
That's a revealing answer, and not in a good way. Mr. Obama has invested precious diplomatic capital trying to "reset" relations with Russia and personalize relations with China's leaders, including this month with Mr. Xi in Palm Springs. Hanging with dictators can't be Mr. Obama's idea of a good time, but if there's a point to the exercise it's precisely so he can pick up the phone and intercede with Vlad and Jinping over this kind of issue.
It's worth wondering whether Mr. Obama didn't make the calls because he feared a personal rebuke, or he wants to downplay the national-security and diplomatic humiliation, or he thinks the Snowden affair is beneath his dignity and best handled by consular officials filling out paperworkor because he really thinks Gen. Alexander is exaggerating the damage Mr. Snowden has done.
If it's the latter, Mr. Obama could do the public a service by confirming that Mr. Snowden hasn't put the crown jewels of U.S. intelligence in foreign hands. Especially because that's not the view emerging from other government sources.
The Washington Post reports that U.S. analysts fear Mr. Snowden stole much more than he's disclosed. "They think he copied so much stuffthat almost everything that place does, he has," a former government official said.
Several reports quote intelligence sources as saying that al Qaeda and terrorist groups have gained insight into how to avoid NSA detection. The Russian and Chinese intelligence services almost certainly copied whatever Mr. Snowden hauled with him to Hong Kong and Moscow. Nearby on these pages, journalist Edward Jay Epstein connects a few dots and suggests that Mr. Snowden took his consultant job with plans to steal and that he may have had help. In short, there is much more to this debacle than we know so far.
Champ doesn't want Eddie back in the States. Time and distance are key elements of successful deflection.
Oh, flew in from Miami Beach B.O.A.C.
Didn't get to bed last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee
Man I had a dreadful flight
I'm back in the U.S.S.R
You don't know how lucky you are boys
Back in the U.S.S.R

President Obama 2013 on national security : "Number one, I shouldn't have to," Mr. Obama said. "Number two, we've got a whole lot of business that we do with China and Russia, and I'm not going to have one case of a suspect who we're trying to extradite suddenly being elevated to the point where I've got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues."

Besoeker, you realize when and why Bin Laden was tech phobic? He used a sat phone from 1996 until 1998. But he stopped in 1998 after a little dick senatorial aid tried to make himself look like he ha a bigger one, by bragging to a reporter that we could geolocate and track him and who he was talking to by use of that sat phone. Then the reporter did what any moron would do, he published it with no regard or consideration of the consequences. With that, our ability to get SIGINT, Geolocation and ELINT on OBL ceased.
The problem is that only Islam provides its adherents with enough belief in a glorious future (combined with a terrible enough present) to give them the WILL to engage in interminable war. In the West we have no FAITH in the future and the communists no longer have a sucky enough present to make massive and sustained sacrifice. Not only that, we (the West) are so perversely guilt-ridden we don't even have the WILL to "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women."
...just another day in the life of the republic: a corrupt bureaucracy dispensing federal gravy to favored clients; a pseudo-legislature passing bills unread by the peoples representatives and uncomprehended by the men who claim to have written them; and a co-regency of jurists torturing an 18th-century document in order to justify what other countries are at least honest enough to recognize as an unprecedented novelty. Whether or not, per Scalia, we should condemn the United States Constitution, it might be time to put the poor wee thing out of its misery.
As it fragments into various camps, the country is being held together by a common popular culture
Something likewise both depressing and encouraging is happening to the United States. Few Americans seem to worry that our present leaders have lied to or misled Congress and the American people without consequences.
Most young people cannot distinguish the First Amendment from the Fourth Amendment and do not worry about the fact that they cannot. Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln are mere names of grammar schools, otherwise unidentifiable to most.
SSSMD; I fear you are correct and so predicted when the Obamanation was elected the first time.
I asked yesterday in a different thread "Where do we get our values from now?"
Few Americans seem to worry that our present leaders have lied to or misled Congress and the American people without consequences
The reason for this is that moral relativism has triumphed to such an extent that the answer if you ask young people why they don't worry about this is "Everyone always does it and always have done it so what's the big deal." Corruption becomes a self replicating machine.

I am sure Scalia is just channeling John Hancock, Jefferson and Washington and other men like Benjamin Franklin who all were tolerant and appreciative of what homosexuality could contribute to the best interests of our Republic.
Like we really needed to be told the homoxesuals are just as good as Mom and Dad. And now we can look forward to marriage with your pets and with several of your closer friends. And when you go to Church you can sit right beside Bruce and Dwayne and smile cause they are just as good as anybody else.
Levitcus is so tre yesterday. So is the entire Bible for that matter. Just a hate book that built Western Civilization. Fugetaboutit.
Detroit was once one of the great cities of America, hey, in the world. Then it forgot why it was a city. Insert all the usual aggrandizing ego driven agendas that help kill the goose that laid the golden egg [of course being modern, urban, and hip, that ancient tale of human behavior could never apply to them]. Other then the pols and specials interests in exploiting the carcass of the place, no one cares or is willing to invest any of the energy and efforts in keeping it around. The 'takers' are engendering that same attitude among the real productive strata of America. It's not my city will become it's my country. As history is replete with examples, a crisis will arise, one of the those down the road, and the people that provided the real foundation of it all, will shrug their shoulders and say 'so what'. The Left can not, will not grasp that event. For them its always about power, to the last.
By then we'll have our new 'undocumented' slaves that will work in factories under conditions much like the chinese and the Democrat party will officially again be the party of slavery. So you'll have slaves doing the work while 'citizens' sit on welfare and taxpayers continue to work like dogs in the slowly shrinking amount of middle-class jobs.
It really is too much like Pournelle's CoDominium series, especially with places legalizing pot to keep the 'citizen' class stoned and having a taxpayer class.
