Marxists Have Taken Control of the California Democrat Party

From time to time, I like to promote the Combat Veterans for Congress Political Action Committee, as their cause is righteous. Their mission is to support the election of combat veterans to the US Congress because there is a need for our elected representatives to understand the total costs of combat operations – especially the human costs – in future deliberations regarding committing US military forces to overseas conflicts.


I agree wholeheartedly with almost all of their stances on issues, as they regularly publish commentary on a wide variety of topics – almost always from a constitutional conservative point of view. Here is one of those opinion pieces that I’m certain will resonate with you, too:

In 2007, four U.S. Communist groups formed an alliance, in order to first take control of the Democrat Party at every level in California, then in a number of other states, with the ultimate goal of taking control of the Democrat National Committee. The long-term plans included the indoctrination of students at all levels of public-school education, to convince millions of students that the government of the United States has been a massive failure, while at the same time, portraying a positive image of Socialism. The programmed goal was to gain the support of generations of naïve students, who would help the four Communists groups gain control of local, state, and the federal government. Their detailed plan is outlined in a document called “The Inside/Outside Project,” as described in this article.

Communists have always focused on younger generations, as this infamous quotation elucidates:

“Give me just one generation of youth and I’ll transform the world.”

                           –   Vladimir Lenin, Chairman of the Council of Commissars of the USSR

In order to support the four US Communist Groups referred to in The Inside/Outside Project, Tom Perez was selected as the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee. Perez was Obama’s Radical Left Labor Secretary and longtime leader of Casa de Maryland, a Communist militant “Immigration Rights Group” that lobbies to give Illegal Aliens the right to vote. When Perez was the leader of Casa de Maryland, Hugo Chavez, the Communist President of Venezuela, and protégé of Fidel Castro, was transmitting $1 million in donations to him each year, while directing Perez to use the funds to keep the southern border wide open.


Perez has a long history of anti-white views, and has been quoted in many published articles, as stating “White people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.” In the 2012 campaign to re-elect Obama, for the first time in US history at the Democrat Party’s National Convention, Perez took “God” out of the Democrat Party’s Platform.

Ambassador Armando Valladares, the former US Ambassador to the UN For Human Rights, identified Perez as a racist who hates the Bible, and is anti-Semitic. He said Perez’ goals are to destroy the Free Enterprise System, the Christian Society of the US, and to turn the US into a Marxist nation. Three of the four groups planning to crush the Free Enterprise System and eliminate the US Constitution are loyal to Beijing:

  • Communist Party USA (CPUSA)
  • Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS)
  • Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO)
  • The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) (the DSA is not closely connected to Beijing as the other three groups, but the DSA is connected to European and the Latin American Communist and Socialist Parties.

There are roughly 100 leftists (Marxists, Socialist, Communists, Progressives, and Muslim Brotherhood supporters) voting as Democrats in the House of Representatives and about 25 Democrats in the US Senate voting in concert with that leftist block in the House. Trevor London’s DVD, ”Enemies Within,” identifies each of the leftists in the House and their loyalties to radical anti-American organizations. They can be easily located by searching the Internet. Many leftist members of Congress are pictured on the Internet, seated with their arms crossed, while the Pledge of Allegiance is being recited in the House of Representatives by standing members with their right hands over their hearts.


Today, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is strongest in the cities of New York, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, and in the states of Connecticut, Texas, Arizona, and California. In San Diego, two CPUSA members (Carl Wood and Emiliana Sparaco) are currently running for the California Democratic Party Central Committee from Assembly Districts 76 and 80. If elected, Wood will push the “Healthy California Act” providing “Medicare For All”; a $15/hour Living Wage; and the “Green New Deal”, at a cost of $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000.00 per household, according to a study co-authored by the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

Emiliana Sparaco traveled to Russia in 2017 as part of a US Communist delegation to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, the event was keynoted by Vladimir Putin. In 2018, Sparaco led the effort to flip the 49th Congressional District from Republican to Democrat, which helped elect Mike Levin to Congress in the 49th.

In Northern California around the Sacramento area, Democrat Representative Ami Bera, who now represents the 7th Congressional District and serves on the House Foreign Relations Committee. She won several very close elections with the support of the CPUSA.

In 1996, Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS) leader Paul Krehbiel led the Communist/labor coalition that ousted conservative Republican Congressman “B1 Bob” Dornan from his previous safe Republican 27th CD seat in Orange County. That was the first step in a concerted effort by a Communist led campaign to turn all of Orange County’s once safe Republican Congressional Districts to Democrat seats.


In the 2018 the Ballot Harvesting Law was passed by the Democrat controlled California Legislature. Then in the 2018 Congressional election, the four above listed Communist organizations mobilized thousands of their operatives to execute the Democrat ballot harvesting program, by collecting millions of the absentee ballots from non-voting Californians, and illegally submitting them as being votes cast by California voters in certain Congressional Districts at the Registrar of Voters on election day. The four above listed Communist organizations substantially helped to defeat Republican Congressional candidates in 7 formerly safe Republican Congressional Districts. Ballot harvesting is illegal in every one of the other 49 states that consider it voter fraud, and if individuals in those states are caught perpetrating ballot harvesting, they would be indicted, tried, convicted, and possibly sent to prison.

The Democrat Socialist of America (DSA), founded in 1992, is America’s largest Marxist organization, with 60,000 dues-paying members. DSA has been strongly supporting Bernie Sanders, and been mobilizing the anti-Trump movements. In California, the DSA will be running over 150 DSA members or allies in the March 2020 primary election, to elect members of the California Democratic Party Central Committee.

Daraka Larimore-Hall, the California Deputy Democrat State Party Chairman, is a Marxist. Having a DSA Marxist in such a key position, of the largest Democratic State Party in the United States, is foreboding. Larimore-Hall has a large number of Socialist Democrat Central Committee members supporting him. The linked article above outlines how the Marxist and Communists took over the once Patriotic Democrat Party. Much of the preceding information was also sourced from that article.


In 2020, California voters will be asked again by Democrat operatives whether they need help in filling out their absentee ballots. If the voters say they are not going to vote, they will be asked again as they were asked in 2018 whether their blank absentee ballots can be picked up (by Democrat operatives).

California Republican candidates can oppose Ballot Harvesting in the 2020 primary and general elections by contacting every registered voter in their districts and requesting that they do not give their blank Absentee Ballots to anyone who asks them for their ballot. As they did in 2018, the Democrats operatives will fill out the blank absentee ballots with the name and address of the California resident who will not be voting, will illegally sign the voters’ names on the absentee ballots, and will then submit the absentee ballots at the Registrar of Voters on election day. And that will mean that the votes of Republicans will be for all practical purposes by these absentee ballots submitted on the behalf of Democrat candidates!

In Orange County California alone during the 2018 election, over 250,000 harvested ballots were submitted to the Registrar of Voters on election day. Fred Whitaker, Chairman of the Orange County Republican Party, said in a note to supporters: “This (the loss) is a direct result of Ballot Harvesting allowed under California law for the first time. That directly caused the switch from being ahead (in 7 safe Republican Congressional races) on election night, to losing those elections two weeks later.”


Can the political machinations of the CPUSA, DSA and other Communist-oriented groups be stymied in the 2020 elections in California? Can ballot harvesting be stopped in its tracks? Are there enough fair-minded Californians left in the state to return the state to a semblance of political balance? One would think that that contemplating nearly $5 a gallon gasoline and other taxes to come would wake up a few people. It’s imperative to at least attempt to level the playing field to give Republican candidates a chance!

The end.
