Thomas Jefferson once said “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” What we are seeing here in America in today’s time proves that wisdom to be correct.
With Democrats adopting Marxism as the foundation of their platform, and for all intents and purposes, fundamentally transforming into a hybrid of Soviet & National Socialist (Nazi) ideologies, President Trump could enact a single law, combined with the authority in the Patriot Act that would send nearly every single elected Democrat immediately to Gitmo.
Do not pass Go, do not collect $200, go immediately to prison with no contact with the outside world, indefinitely.
Yes, President Trump could do this with the simple signing of a secret Executive Order giving the US Marshals instructions to arrest Democrat politicians when the legislature is in session.
Would there be riots? Absolutely no doubt. Democrats stricken with Trump derangement syndrome and no notion of law and order would riot.
Fortunately, they too could be arrested using the same law and the Patriot Act.
So how could President Trump resolve the problem in America so quickly? Simple, using the Communist Control Act of 1954.
What is the Communist Control Act?
The Communist Control Act (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is a piece of United States federal legislation, signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954, which outlaws the Communist Party of the United States and criminalizes membership in, or support for the Party or “Communist-action” organizations and defines evidence to be considered by a jury in determining participation in the activities, planning, actions, objectives, or purposes of such organizations.
Created during the period of the Second Red Scare (1946–1954), the Act was one of many bills drafted with the intention of protecting the American government from the potential threat posed by the international Communists
During this time, some argued that “the pursuit of subversive aims even by peaceful means should [have been] outlawed.”
Thus, many opposed Communism because of its explicitly declared and historically demonstrable goal to undermine America’s Constitutional Republic. In the words of Ernest van den Haag, there was “no place in democracy for those who want to abolish [it] even with a peaceful vote.”
The Communist Control Act was originally proposed as an amendment to the Internal Security Act of 1950, which had sought to combat the spread of communism in labor unions. Apart from its secondary focus which concentrated on the illegality of “communist front organizations” (i.e. labor unions), the bill was drafted with the intention of tackling the root of the communist problem in the United States: the Communist Party.
In its second section, the CCA of 1954 portrayed the American Communist Party as an “agency of a hostile foreign power.” The Party was described as “an instrumentality of a conspiracy to overthrow the government,” and as a “clear, present, and continuing danger to the security of the United States.”
The Act made membership to the Communist Party a criminal act and stipulated that all Party members would be sanctioned with up to a $10,000 fine or imprisonment for five years or both if they failed to register with the U.S. Attorney General as such. Additionally, according to the third section, the Communist Party would be deprived of “the rights, privileges, and immunities of a legal body.”
The Internal Security Act of 1950 had defined two types of “communist organizations.” Senator Butler later proposed a bill aimed at the removal of Communists from leadership positions in labor unions, adding a third class, that of “communist-infiltrated organizations.” Afterwards, Democratic Senator Humphrey put forward a substitute to that bill with the intention of directly tackling the “root of evil,” the Communist Party members. Through an amendment by Senator Daniel, both the Butler and Humphrey bills were merged into one, winning unanimous approval in the Senate from both Democrats and Republicans.
The Supreme Court of the United States has not ruled on the act’s constitutionality. Despite that, no administration has tried to enforce it. The provisions of the act outlawing the party have not been repealed. Nevertheless, the Communist Party USA continues to exist in the 21st century.
An excerpt from the Communist Control Act states:
The Communist Party of the United States, or any successors of such party regardless of the assumed name, whose object or purpose is to overthrow the Government of the United States, or the government of any State, Territory, District, or possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein by force and violence, are not entitled to any of the rights, privileges, and immunities attendant upon legal bodies created under the jurisdiction of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof; and whatever rights, privileges, and immunities which have heretofore been granted to said party or any subsidiary organization by reason of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof, are terminated: Provided, however, That nothing in this section shall be construed as amending the Internal Security Act of 1950, as amended [50 U.S.C. 781 et seq.]
In short, Communists do not have Constitutional rights in America because their goal is to destroy the very rights they are abusing.
Meanwhile, there are no less than 75 known Marxists that have been able to infiltrate Congress due to the lack of enforcement of the CCA.
The 75-member Congressional Progressive Caucus, co-chaired by Reps. Raul Grijalva and Keith Ellison, is closely allied with the Democratic Socialists of America. The Communist Party USA identifies Progressive Caucus members as its “allies in Congress.”
Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva, Democrat Keith Ellison, heads of the Socialist wing of the Democratic Party consists of 76 Members of Congress that have close ties to the Institute for Policy Studies and the Democratic Socialists of America, which has ties to the Communist Party USA.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) was founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders, a self-identified socialist who had recently been elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Sanders’ CPC co-founders included House members Ron Dellums,Lane Evans, Thomas Andrews, Peter DeFazio, and Maxine Waters. The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) was also involved in CPC’s founding and in Caucus activities thereafter; IPS continues to advise CPC on various matters to this day.
Another key player in establishing CPC was the Democratic Socialists of America(DSA), which has maintained a close alliance with the Caucus ever since. In 1997, DSA’s political director, Chris Riddiough, organized a meeting with CPC leaders to discuss how the two groups might be able to “unite our forces on a common agenda.” Among those who participated in the meeting were Bernie Sanders, labor leaderRichard Trumka, professor Noam Chomsky, feminist Patricia Ireland, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Senator Paul Wellstone, journalist William Greider, and the socialist authorBarbara Ehrenreich.
