Most Americans are aware of the radical policies of “The Squad,” four leftist Democrat Congresswomen led by New York’s Rep. Alexandia Ocasio-Cortez.

But how many know that many members of Congress function, like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, as Democratic Socialists? How many know that the Congressional Progressive Caucus has 100 House members plus Sen. Sanders, all of whom are Democrats who embrace a far-left agenda?

Chaired by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA), with Deputy Chair Ilhan Omar (MN) and Whip Greg Casar (TX), the Caucus says its core principles are:

“(1) Advancing justice, dignity, and peace for all; (2) Tackling systems of oppression and dismantling structural racism and discrimination; (3) Taking on systems that privilege the wealthy and powerful to demand a government and economy that works for the people; and (4) A commitment to sweeping, transformative change.”

Translation: We want socialism and we will do whatever it takes to get there.

When Barack Obama secured the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, he promised to “radically transform” America. During his two terms in office, he did everything he could to overthrow America’s self-governing republic and replace it with top-down, socialist government and lawless judges.

Since then, the Democrat Party has moved even further to the left and now espouses outright socialism and sexual anarchy, masquerading as “equity, inclusion, and diversity.”

Under President Joe Biden, the party has crippled America’s energy industries, spent trillions of dollars, raised America’s national debt to more than $31 trillion, projected weakness to our enemies, and left our southern border wide open to millions of illegal immigrants, including violent criminals, fentanyl dealers, and sex traffickers.

How do we effectively oppose the powerful socialist forces in the White House and Congress?

Can the new, Republican-run House make a difference?
