Signed by one of our greatest Presidents: Eisenhower.


The Communist Control Act of 1954 (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is an American law signed by President Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954 that 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


en.wikipedia.org...

Given the number of overt communists & sympathizers, you would expect this law to be used more often to root out and deal with these types.

We've even had a major political party (Democratic Socialists of America) meeting with sworn enemy & war criminal Maduro in Venezuela.

And yet, apparently there has been a law on the books all along to put a decisive end to the problems we are facing. Where has it been? What comes of a society when Citizens are given no choice but to enforce our laws because the folks we pay so much of our money to do it fail to act?

The USA needs a solid dose of McCarthyism injected back into it. Would to the country a lot of good for at least the next few decades.

Sadly America has seen tyranny before and fascism but it has forgotten, maybe the real reason for the jab and how is been pushed to dumb out the population so they can not see what is been done to the nation behind close doors.

Yes socialism is the goal of the Democratic party right now, you can see how they are working on it everyday with their actions.

I think it's too late.

Look who we have in DC and in many states and look at the morons following them.

Look at our education system, colleges and universities.

Look at the professional sports industry, the entertainment industry.

Agreed!!


And my apologies for thread-jacking you there


Great minds




It would at least give us a real way to fight back against the Marxist indoctrination that has ruined the better part of two solid generations

John Brennan, Obama's CIA director, even admitted he voted for the Communist Party candidate in '80.


Brennan had to take a polygraph test to gain admission to the CIA, and during the test, he was asked whether he had ever worked with or for a group dedicated to overthrowing the U.S. government. “This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,” he told the audience.

Brennan voted for Gus Hall, the presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA, in 1976.

Based on the Further history portion it's always been to late:

In 1973, a federal district court in Arizona decided that the act was unconstitutional and Arizona could not keep the party off the ballot in the 1972 general election (Blawis v. Bolin). In 1961, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the act did not bar the party from participating in New York's unemployment insurance system (Communist Party v. Catherwood)

But the Supreme Court has not ruled on the act's constitutionality. No administration has tried to enforce it. The provisions of the act outlawing the party have not been repealed, but the Communist Party USA continues to exist.

In many ways you are right DB, of course


I just hope the opposite side of that...those the in-your-face of it all have galvanized...I hope it has woken enough of us up to reality

And if so, there just might be a real chance here


The poll also found that a majority of Republicans (55%) say "the traditional American way of life is disappearing so fast we may have to use force to save it." About 15% of Democrats agreed with this statement, but more Americans disagreed (46%) than agreed (34%).



nearly half of Republican voters (47%) say that "a time will come when patriotic Americans have to take the law into their own hands," per a new nationwide survey by George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs.

Gives me hope that even if only 3% of those "mean it".....those are some staggering numbers in our favor

Hypothetically of course

People succumbed to fear. From day one, all one had to do was read the official unbiased CDC reports on masks spanning over a decade. They do not work. People flat out refused to "follow the science". And look where we are. People are so politically biased and entrenched now with fear and hatred there is no way out. It will just get worse and worse.

Please, as you could tell from July of 2020, everyone on both sides were far too busy virtue signaling and displaying how piously supportive of the BLM and ANTIFA lies they were to consider such a radical concept as actually enforcing standing federal law and prosecuting socialists/Marxists/Communists for their decidedly Unamerican criminal behaviors.

What I do know is that there will be a fight coming.

Aren't you one of the people crying about how social media banning people on the Right is a violation of the 1st Amendment? But here you are celebrating a law that actually makes it illegal to have a specific political ideology.

By the way, the only reason the law is on the books is because it has never been enforced. At one time Arizona tried to use the law to prevent the Communist Party from appearing on the ballot and a federal court ruled the law unconstitutional.

If they use this law it will get struck down in the courts. It needs to be reworded and tweaked up a bit.


In 1973, a federal district court in Arizona decided that the act was unconstitutional and Arizona could not keep the party off the ballot in the 1972 general election (Blawis v. Bolin). In 1961, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the act did not bar the party from participating in New York's unemployment insurance system (Communist Party v.
