Bolshevik Bernie And The Communist Spy

In a 1,500-word article about the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, The Washington Post waited until the 25th paragraph to note that the self-declared socialist faces an “obstacle” to winning the presidency. The paper said that “…Sanders has not faced the kind of media scrutiny, let alone attacks from opponents, that leading candidates eventually experience.” The authors, Philip Rucker and James Wagner, added, “Sure to follow his summer surge is an autumn of investigations that could reveal new details about his personal background and record.”

What these investigations would find is that Sanders was a collaborator, if not a member, of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the same group that backed Obama’s run for the presidency. DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.

There is a video showing Obama campaigning for him when Sanders ran for the Senate. Interestingly, Sanders, who won his Senate seat in 2006, called Obama “one of the great leaders of the United States Senate,” even though Obama had only been in the body for about two years.

One of the more interesting members of the DSA is Kurt Stand, a communist spy for the Soviet Union (and then Russia) and East Germany who was sentenced to prison in 1998 and released in 2012. He served over 17 years. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage, attempted espionage, and illegally obtaining national defense documents.

Where is he now? Thanks to the DSA, we know that Stand has returned to the organization, which is campaigning hard for Sanders for president. Indeed, DSA has posted photos of Stand and his comrades promoting “socialist values” and the Sanders campaign at the Greenbelt (Maryland) Labor Day Festival.

Stand has himself posted an article about how the group called Progressive Maryland is working hard to mobilize left-wing forces throughout the state.

According to the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Defense Intelligence Agency, Stand and his comrades, Therese Marie Squillacote and James Michael Clark, were on a mission “to cultivate other spies” in the Washington, D.C. area. Stand allegedly received $24,650 for his recruiting and coordinating efforts, according to a summary of the case. The summary says Stand and his comrades apparently became enamored with socialism when going to college: “Clark, Squillacote, and Stand attended the University of Wisconsin in the 1970s where they were affiliated with leftist groups, specifically the Progressive Student Forum and the Young Workers Liberation League, the youth arm of the Communist Party USA.”

It appears there is quite a bit of overlap between the various socialist, communist and progressive groups.

When he was in prison, Stand came out in strong support of Barack Obama for president, saying, “The conversations I’ve listened to and taken part in over these past months have made me a stronger supporter of Obama than I otherwise would have been; have strengthened my perception that his election could be a critical part of building a movement of resistance to our country’s current direction, could help provide the space or framework in which more radical alternatives are again spoken and heard.”

At the end of his letter, dated June 2008, Stand said that “radicals and progressives ought to join those—including those in prison—who have already decided to back Obama, see where the campaign can take us, see what can then be accomplished.”

Bernie is now his candidate.

In the same edition that carried the story about Sanders’ run for the Democratic presidential nomination, The Washington Post ran a story, “The Bernie Sanders of Britain,” about the Marxist who has taken over leadership of the British Labor Party. The online version carried the softer headline, “Leftist Jeremy Corbyn elected leader of Britain’s Labour Party.” Corbyn “has previously called for Britain to leave NATO, favors unilateral nuclear disarmament and champions the nationalization of vast sectors of the economy, including the railways and the energy industries,” the paper reported. Corbyn admires Russia’s Vladimir Putin and excuses the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Sanders, labeled by his critics as “Bolshevik Bernie,” told The Huffington Post that he was “delighted” to see that the British Labor Party had elected Corbyn as its new leader.

While Hillary Clinton has been sidetracked by her email scandal, Sanders has been popularizing socialism and expanding the Democratic Party base, noted Jeff Weaver, the Sanders campaign manager who was quoted in the Post. The unspoken assumption is that these new voters will turn out for whoever is the Democratic presidential nominee. This explains why Sanders has been spared media scrutiny. The media assume that he won’t get the nomination, but that he will bring more people to vote for the eventual Democratic nominee.

Bill Ayers, the former communist terrorist and Obama supporter, is hopeful about what Sanders can do for the far-left. “Certainly among the Sanders supporters there are many who will flock like liberal sheep to Hillary once the Bern burns out,” he writes. “However, I believe that among the Sanders supporters there are thousands who are dissatisfied, who are disgruntled, but who do not have a coherent left analysis, who therefore are open to our ideas as they weren’t before they got involved in the Sanders surge. These seekers will be open (certainly many of them) to ideas from the Left of Sanders.”

Ayers adds:

We must think as organizers. Yes, demonstrate, fight in the streets but spend some time and energy going to places where the Sanders campaign has gathered a crowd or a meeting but go not to disrupt, disrupting there would show how true we are to our knowledge, to our anger, to our need to show ‘them’ us… So I think that we should jump in the water. After all, the anti-war multitudes of the 60s and 70s were only disgruntled, dissatisfied people and without a coherent left analysis, yet we jumped in. Why? Because a movement can only be built on motion. Motion is people open, people leaving their normal placid acceptance if only a little, if only briefly. So, things swirled. Liberal anti-war marches. My collective would go, stand alongside the marchers with paper Viet Cong flags and pins, encouraging people to wear the flags. We gave maybe a thousand away. A good left action. We also had leaflets with our analysis of the war on Vietnam. Many people took those. Good. Better than if we had stayed home.

This is how a pro-communist message was inserted into the “anti-war” demonstrations that convinced a Democrat-controlled Congress to cut off aid to a non-communist South Vietnam, paving the way for a communist victory in Vietnam and the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia.

The Washington Post is correct that Sanders has a lot to explain.

Let’s take the USSR first. Sanders went on his honeymoon to the former USSR. He was a supporter of the communist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua. He was a collaborator with the U.S. Peace Council—a Communist Party front—against the Reagan military build-up. He worked with the Venezuelan regime of Hugo Chavez to distribute Venezuelan oil in the U.S.

The Post is right that Sanders deserves “media scrutiny” and “investigations that could reveal new details about his personal background and record.” So what accounts for the delay in the media doing their jobs? Would the results cast the Democratic Party in a bad light?

It’s no wonder, as we previously reported, that Sanders has been concerned that the NSA is conducting surveillance on links between American politicians and foreign regimes and movements. As I noted at the time, one of the NSA’s greatest successes was known as Venona, the code name given to the intercepted and deciphered KGB and GRU (Russian military intelligence) messages between Moscow and the Soviet espionage network in the United States. The project led to the apprehension of such spies as State Department official Alger Hiss.

Has the NSA been watching Bolshevik Bernie? This could make Hillary’s email scandal look mild by comparison.

Of course, Sanders would twist it against the NSA, arguing that he was just an innocent victim. The facts suggest otherwise.

Watch: Megyn Kelly’s Staff Couldn’t Help But Laugh As She Totally Destroyed This Critic

Megyn Kelly

Former Weather Underground domestic terrorist Bill Ayers gave a multi-part interview to FOX host Megyn Kelly a few months ago, and decided to express his experience with her to Salon magazine.

“I had never even seen Megyn Kelly,” he said. “She struck me as a very strange person. She’s like a cyborg constructed in the basement of Fox News. She’s very striking, but very metallic, very cold. Her eyes are very cold.”

Kelly was quick to respond to his comments on her Twitter account:

She continued to dissect Ayers’ comments about her as the host and the staff couldn’t help but laugh:

“The man’s got a point, they can be cold,” Kelly said. “Not as cold as those of the three people killed while making bombs for Ayers’ group, but icy at times. Especially when I’m looking at a serial bomber who terrorizes so many including an innocent little boy.”

“Well I looked up ‘cyborg’ and it’s a superhuman being, so I’m choosing to take that as a compliment,” she said chuckling.

Kelly finished the clip by saying that despite her “cold eyes,” Ayers was brave enough to appear on her show.

Obama Prepares Pardons For Terrorists

Bill Ayers’ recent appearance on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program appears to be part of a systematic campaign to whitewash the activities of the communist terrorists who were murdering policemen and FBI agents during the 1960s and 70s, and to set the stage for their release and rehabilitation.

Kelly was unprepared for the interview and failed to consult prominent experts on the case, such as former FBI agent Max Noel. “I’m extremely disappointed, as are a number of us who actually worked the WUO [Weather Underground Organization] case on a daily basis, in your attempt to ‘confront him’ without availing yourself of the knowledge that those of us who actually worked the case could have given you,” Noel said in a message to Kelly. The former FBI agent, who arrested the UNABOMBER and has co-authored a sensational new book about that case, was a member of the Weatherman Task Force in San Francisco, where Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, were operating.

Noel has sensational details about how the Weather Underground constructed its bombs in order to kill people, not just damage property. This information, if publicized on “The Kelly File,” would have exposed Ayers as the crazed and committed communist he truly is. As a result of this glaring omission, Ayers succeeded in coming across as simply an aging “anti-war activist” or “radical” who carried things a little too far with bombings that caused some property damage but killed no one.

This is as big a lie as Ayers’ claim made to Kelly that he didn’t know Barack Obama very well, even though he helped him launch his political career in Chicago. “I knew him as well as he knew 10,000 other people,” Ayers said. “Today, I wish I knew him much better and I wish he’d listen to me.”

But the evidence indicates that President Obama, or at least his Attorney General Eric Holder, is listening.

Left unsaid on “The Kelly File” show was the critical fact that many of Ayers’ comrades are still in jail or prison, waiting for Democratic politicians such as President Obama and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to grant pardons or clemency. Some have already been released, with no significant press attention devoted to the pattern that is developing.

Ayers and Dohrn could themselves be charged in the Park Police Station case, in which Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell was killed. But apparently, they are quite confident that this will never happen as long as President Obama and Eric Holder are running the Justice Department.

The insidious campaign of releasing and/or rehabilitating these terrorists has been underway for some time.

It began in 2003 when Kathy Boudin, one of Ayers’ more notorious associates, was granted parole from New York state prison. Boudin had gone to prison for her involvement in an October 20, 1981 armed terrorist assault that left Nyack, New York Police Sgt. Edward O’Grady, Patrolman Waverly Brown, and Brinks guard Peter Paige dead.

Taking a cue from the rehabilitation of Ayers himself, who had become a “professor” of education at the University of Illinois, Boudin is now an associate professor at Columbia University’s School of Social Work.

Former Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers Says Something That Will Have You Screaming “Get Out Then!”

Megyn Kelly

In a interview aired on “The Kelly File” Wednesday, filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers butted heads on everything from American exceptionalism to the violent ploys of the Weather Underground in the 60′s and 70′s to the actions of Martin Luther King Jr.

At one point, Ayers openly admitted that he “is not proud to be an American” and went as far as to say he doesn’t buy into the notion of American exceptionalism, a point at which D’Souza steadfastly disagreed with him.

D’Souza, who immigrated to the United States as an exchange student in 1978, said he can see why the US is an exceptional nation because he’s lived in other cultures.

Ayers, in defense of his actions in the past, said:

“The reality is we were never terrorists, and Dinesh does call our group terrorists and that’s not true because terrorism, even if you take Webster’s definition, it’s force and coercion intended to spread fear and panic to make your point and it often involves killing civilians. We never killed anyone; we did noisy, loud, very open destruction of property at a time when 6000 people a week were being murdered by our government.”

D’Souza squandered that notion by saying, “there was a big difference between Martin Luther King [Jr.] breaking the law and Bill Ayers breaking the law.” Dr. King used non-violent methods to protest an unjust society and proudly went to jail to make a point. Ayers used violent tactics and fled justice, D’Souza explained.

The terrorism actions D’Souza was speaking of can be found in another segment with Megyn Kelly. There is also a interview in which former NYPD and FBI agents dispute Ayers’ claims that he and his group didn’t commit terrorism acts.

Former FBI, NYPD Officials Dispute Bill Ayers And His “Non-violent” Ideologies

Megyn Kelly and NYPD, FBI

After the two part series with Megyn Kelly and the known former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Kelly interviewed former FBI and NYPD members who investigated Ayers to hear their reactions to his testimony.

William Reagan, who infiltrated Weather Underground with the FBI; Richard Giannotti, who also infiltrated and went underground with the group; and Warren Sonne, who was with the NYPD terrorism unit, unanimously disagreed with Ayers’ statement, saying most of it was false.

Ayers steadfastly told Kelly that he and his group were “non-violent” and did not endanger people in their bombings.

“As they progressed, they were getting more and more violent. Using weapons, explosives, targeting people…They were ready to kill a federal judge and ready to bomb a state senator in California,” Giannotti said. “They were very, very violent.”

“As the leader of Weather Underground, his proposition was the violent overthrow of the United States of America …That was his mission,” Sonne said.

When Ayers was asked if he could see himself planting bombs again today, he replied, “I can’t completely say, ‘No, I would never, ever rise up in opposition in a very militant and serious way’… I’m not committed to nonviolence as an ideology.”

Warren Sonne thinks different, however, and thinks that given the chance or opportunity, he would do so again–and much worse this time.

“He would use that same state of the art technology again today, except today he’d be taking 11-year-olds and putting bomb vests on them and sending them out to pizzerias or malls. That’s the kind of person you’re dealing with here. That’s the mentality of this group. Their hatred of America is astounding.”
