Communist Goals as Defined in 1963

A good friend of mine directed me to a link from a house of representatives meeting that took place in 1963. One of the speakers there described the current communist goals of that time, many of which are outlined within The Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx. They describe the different goals that are necessary to attain a socialist state. Take a look at some of these objectives, especially the ones that have been bolded, and tell me which political party is responsibly currently for these atrocities:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Think about what our country would be like if all these objectives were met... I know... It's a scary thought.

Vice President, Rivier College Republicans

Thank the Troops

As I am writing this, a brave American has probably just given his or her life to protect mine. However, their death will not be in vain. For they have done their best to not only defend our country and freedoms, but they have also protected the lives of innocent people around the world. We should be thankful. We should be thankful for the courageous men and women, sho serve our country and our cause of liberty. We should be thankful we are living in the greatest nation on earth, which has become a beacon of hope for millions of people. I will honor those who have served this country and thank them whenever I get the chance. Veterans need to know their choice of serving their country was a choice well made, and we, as a nation united, will be forever thankful of their efforts.

All I desire is for people to remember and respect those who died for our country. All I ask is when you hear the Star-Spangled Banner, stand, not because the person next to you has risen, stand up because nobody is forcing you to do so. Stand because you should be proud to be living in America, a nation that has given millions of dollars, prayers, and Americans to help other countries and asked for nothing in return, but a “thank-you.” I want you to be thankful you are living is such a nation as the United States, where you have the freedom to voice your opinion without fear of punishment. Never forget the men and women of our military who died to protect you from harm. They didn't even know you, but they gave their lives for you, the ultimate sacrifice. Today, tomorrow, and forever, be proud to be an American and honor those who have given their lives to keep our country strong. I will.

At this time of the year, our troops need to know that we support them and we are thankful for their brave efforts. Please take a moment of your time and thank a soldier for serving. You can also visit the website below, and send a "Thank You" card to a soldier overseas. It's quick, easy, and will mean a lot to our troops.

Hillary Clinton Plants Questions

Is Hillary cheating? Can she not handle real questions on her own? Do we want somebody who plants questions because she is too afraid to handle real ones as our President?

Maybe that's one of the many reasons why she is dropping in the polls.

Weather Channel Founder Says Global Warming is a Scam

The founder of the Weather Channel has said that "global warming" is nothing but the "greatest scam in history."

He goes on to say, "Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in [sic] allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the "research" to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going.

I have read dozens of scientific papers. I have talked with numerous scientists. I have studied. I have thought about it. I know I am correct. There is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril.

In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious."

Al Gore now has a financial stake in "global warming." According to a news article, "Al Gore joined Silicon Valley's most prestigious venture capital firm to guide investments that help combat global warming."

Making money off of some half-baked theory? Not a bad idea, Al "The Hypocrite" Gore.

Students for Saving Social Security Event!

We're getting screwed by Social Security was our message to the students @ Rivier today. We played a simulated game where we advertised free king size snickers bars if you could get the ball in the basket. Everyone was a winner, but the size of the candybar we actually handed out was a mini-size, signifying that by the time we need social security, that small and insignificant portion will not be enough to "satisfy our hunger."

Rivier College Republicans Recognized by Andy Card

Last night at their meeting, the Rivier College Republicans received a call from the former White House Chief of Staff Andy Card, who congratulated them on their efforts. He also mentioned the importance of College Republicans, and how lucky we are to be in New Hampshire where we can truly make our voices heard in politics. He said that he has not yet endorsed a candidate, but he knows that having a Republican in the White House will be best for the country. He thanked the Rivier College Republicans for their support of the Republican Party and wished them good luck with their future endeavors.

Meeting Mayor Rudy Giuliani

The Rivier College Republicans carved pumpkins for our college's Halloween Extravaganza.

Mayor Rudy Giuliani was in Nashua, NH this week, and a couple of us went to see him. He gave a short speech on his famous "12 Commitments."

After speaking, he met with some people and answered questions. We were lucky enough to meet him and have photos with him.

Death Numbers Down

An article by the Associated Press released on October 30th, 2007 states that the 37 deaths of U.S. troops in October has been the lowest number of deaths in any month in nearly two years. The second lowest was in March 2006. The article also states, "That would be the second consecutive drop in monthly figures, after 65 Americans died in September and 84 in August."

The "troop surge" strategy developed by military leaders in Iraq seems to be working as the number of troop casualties is lowering and the troops are winning more control over the region to stop attacks. The Iraq War could be turning a corner for the better. Fewer troops are dying and Iraq is becoming more stable. The time may be coming for troops to begin to withdraw from the region. We all want our troops to come home, but we also want victory in Iraq, so that Iraq becomes a stable nation that will be an ally of the U.S. Maybe when other hostile Middle Eastern countries see the success in Iraq that was possible through democracy, liberty, and freedom, the citizens of those countries will demand change.
