Right now, Joe McCarthy is saying 'I told you so' while shaking his head in disgust at those who did not listen. It has now been confirmed that of the 535 members in the U.S. congress, 70 of them are card carrying members of the Democratic Socialists of America. Yes, 70 Democrats in the House and the Senate are registered Socialists. Keep in mind, that there are currently 256 Democrats in the House and 59 in the Senate (Lieberman and Sanders caucus with Democrats). That's a grand total of 315 Democrats in Congress, 70 of which are confirmed socialists, which equates to just over 22%.

How about that list of names? It's about who you'd expect but interestingly, the two Democrats currently under investigation for ethics violations BY the Democrats - Maxine Waters and Charlie Rangel - are both registered Socialists as well. Yes, the man who was once chairman of the House Ways and Means committee, the most powerful committee in Congress, is a Socialist. So is California Rep. Pete Stark, at one time 2nd in charge.

Other notables on the list include Robert Wexler (FL), Dennis Kucinich (OH), Jesse Jackson Jr. (IL) and the lone Senator to declare his socialist loyalty is no surprise - Bernie Sanders (VT).

However, what I found particularly interesting was the number of registered socialists who also belong to the Congressional Black Caucus. By my count, the CBC consists of 42 members. All but 11 of those members are registered with the Democratic Socialists of America. That translates to 74% of the entire Congressional Black Caucus being avowed socialists. I wonder what percentage of the 11 share the same ideology but simply didn't register for political expediency. Then again, why participate in the CBC at all if that's the case?

C'mon, you know you want to watch this one again... If the list had come out before Maxine realized she advocated Socialism publicly, she wouldn't have had to stammer, stutter, and stumble in this exchange.

Big H/T to Gateway Pundit for the DSA List!


We passed ridiculous a long time ago; it's not even in our rearview mirror anymore. Nonetheless, Obama has again chosen to push down on the accelerator again. This time, while hosting a Ramadan celebration at the White House, he has stripped Robert Gibbs of any remaining vestiges of credibility he had by announcing something counter to what his press secretary had said only days earlier. When asked a question about the president's stance on the ground zero mosque, Gibbs said it was an issue to be left up to local authorities.

It was announced earlier this week that the White House would be celebrating Ramadan - despite shunning Rev. Franklin Graham from the National Day of Prayer event not that long ago.
President Barack Obama will Friday join an evening meal to break the daily fast observed by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan, the White House said.

The hosting of Iftar will be held in a dining room at the White House, his spokesman said.

Obama participated in a traditional Ramadan meal in September 2009, where he praised Islam as an integral part of the United States.
As if that wasn't disturbing enough, while at the dinner, Obama threw his support behind yet another issue on which the American people are vehemently against - the Ground Zero mosque.

Via the Wall Street Journal:
The president, in his prepared remarks for the Friday evening event, said, "I understand the emotions that this issue engenders. Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground.

"But let me be clear: as a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan,'' he said.
Wouldn't you love to see Obama make that speech in Mecca but instead pleading for them to allow a church to be built along the Hajj path for those Muslims having second thoughts about their pilgrimage?

Here's Gibbs responding to the question on August 3rd.
