The is the largest power bloc in the US Congress and also has influence in the US Senate.
From leftist US magazine, The Nation
The CPC – already the largest caucus in Congress with 64 members – is expected to add at least seven new Democrats after this election. (Eight of the twelve candidates who received campaign support from caucus members won their races, including: Jerry McNerney (CA); Phil Hare (IL); Keith Ellison (MN); Bruce Braley (IA); John Hall (NY); Mazie Hirono (HI); Gabrielle Giffords (AZ); and Julia Carson (IN).) The CPC will now be represented in the Senate, too, where Senator-elect Bernie Sanders has pledged to remain a member and help recruit his new colleagues, and Sherrod Brown is expected to do the same.
The CPC was created by the Marxists of the Democratic Socialists of America and many of its key activists are allied to the Communist Party USA.
Several of its members have ties to Cuba, radical Islam, the peace movement and other elements of the extreme left.
Therefore this article from Frontpage Magazine is not surprising.
Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) has been named to the House Judiciary Committee. Ellison said in a statement: “I look forward to pursuing a progressive agenda in the committee, including the restoration of American citizen’s civil liberties that have come under increasing attack over the past six years.”
The American citizens Ellison, the nation’s first Muslim congressman, has in mind are likely Muslims who charge that they have been subjected to unjust scrutiny and inconvenience in the aftermath of 9/11. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shares this view: she has announced her intention to “correct the Patriot Act,” and wants to criminalize scrutiny of Muslims at airports and elsewhere: “Since September 11, many Muslim Americans have been subjected to searches at airports and other locations based upon their religion and national origin. We must make it illegal.”
Helping make it illegal with Ellison on the House Judiciary Committee will be John Conyers (D-MI), the new chairman of that committee. “The policies of the Bush administration,” he has declared, “have sent a wave of fear through our immigrant communities and targeted our Arab and Muslim neighbors.”
New Zeal Ellison was elected with CPC help and is probably a member. Pelosi was a leader of the CPC until she stepped down to lead the Democrats in Congress. Conyers is a member of the CPC.
Is the CPC putting socialist ideology before US security? No…couldn’t happen.

Nothing about the progressive agenda has to do with individual rights upon which this great country was founded by the people themselves. It is time to call these members to account for violating their oaths to support the US Constitution which has no references to group or collective rights. Activist judges are simply not authorized to change our Constitution either. Their opinions must be challenged by the people by electing patriots who are wise, honest, and good and will oust the deceptive, undermining and destructive ideologues that are the progressive movement.
The idea that our elected officials are afraid to confront radical ideas in the face of receiving a dressing down for violating the political correctness code (instituted incrementally over time by these very enemies of individual freedom) is a suicide pact in many ways, including for our national defense.
“steve the not-so nice guy”
Since when did you care about the national security of Western governments like the United States? Never I bet.
You still haven’t solved the Ten For One Conunmdrum !
Don’t give me this propaganda. Bill Clinton had 8 years, 8 YEARS which is always more than 8 MONTHS! Apparently you must be bad at math.
As for who could have done 9/11 besides bin Laden, how about also reviewing those videos of radical Palestinians dancing in the streets when the terror attacks occurred? You know, the same supporters of the Palestinian Liberation Organization? Who had enough time like around 8 years to infiltrate the United States, make themselves look “moderate” when they’re not? Hmm?
You may remember, Trevor, that 9/11 acutally happened on GEORGE W. BUSH’s watch, and he has nothing to do with the CPC. You’re spinning shit again.
While I am not against Muslims being involved with the U.S. Congress, I believe it wouldn’t be healthy to have one of them being a radical. Or one being backed by radical front groups like CAIR.
