Security Implications? Red Rosa DeLauro’s Communist Party Connection

U.S. Rep Rosa DeLauro is a powerful and influential woman…

DeLauro has been the co-chair of the House Democratic Steering Committee since 2003, where she makes committee assignments. This position gives Rep. DeLauro the power to determine the make up of powerful House Committees, to stack them with those Congressmen she deems most appropriate.

She is also a member of the far left Congressional Progressive Caucus , which may help to explain why that organization is so well represented on several powerful House Committees.

The representative from Connecticut’s 3rd Congressional District is the second-highest ranking woman in the U.S. House, after her close friend and colleague, Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi.

Rosa DeLauro’s Congressional District is centered on the City of New Haven, which happens to be a stronghold of the Communist Party USA. For many years the Connecticut Communist Party has been very influential in the local labor movement, “peace” movement, city government and the Democratic Party.

New Haven Peoples Center celebration

The Communist Party’s activity, is centered on the New Haven Peoples Center, (established 1937), which houses Party front groups, and hosts Party functions.

Communist Party member Al Marder is president of the Peoples Center, while his comrade Joelle Fishman serves as a board member.

On August 11, the Party allied local chapter of the Alliance for Retired Americans (Joelle Fishman is a board member) hosted a function to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Social Security.

Guest of honor was local Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro.

Listening to the first few minutes this speech, makes its very clear that DeLauro is familiar with many of those in attendance.

Photograher at the event , which was well covered in the Peoples World, was long time Party supporter Henry Lowendorf.

Celestino Cordova, at least a Communist Party supporter, presented DeLauro with postcards, calling on Congress to reject any proposals to raise the retirement age or cut benefits.

Cordova serves on the City of New Haven Peace Commission with Party members Al Marder and Joelle Fishman and indicates his support for the Party paper Peoples World on his Facebook page.

In June this year, DeLauro presented Celestino Cordova with medals for his Korean War service at a ceremony at the Fair Haven Elderly Apartments community room.

Rosa DeLauro may have a thing about hugging communists.

Below is a picture taken at the August 11 Peoples Center celebration , of DeLauro embracing confirmed communist Joelle Fishman.

Unfortunately Joelle Fishman is not just any communist. Fishman chairs the Connecticut Communist Party and is a member of the Communist Party USA National Board.

Most importantly however she is Chair of the Party’s Political Action Commission. This is an highly important and influential post.

Fishman has the responsibility for organizing Party support for “progressive” Democratic Party candidates at the state, congressional, senate and presidential levels.

This means that Fishman is very important to the Democratic Party, as she has the power to influence where communist led unions, “community groups”, churches and “peace” groups throw their money and manpower.

The fact that Fishman clearly has a personal relationship with a key leader of the Democratic Party should be raising eyebrows and ringing alarm bells.

Like virtually all Communist Party USA members, Joelle Fishman actively campaigned for Party “friend” Barack Obama in 2008.

Joelle Fishman wrote in the Connecticut Communist Party’s CT People Before Profits Blog November 2 2008;

It was enjoyable to knock on doors and find voters who were enthusiastic and inspired by Obama’s historic candidacy, like the teacher who said her whole family was spreading the word. There were several families of divided opinion and others who declined to say. The most challenging conversations were with voters who did not want to support Obama because they were caught up in the lies and rumors undermining his integrity and patriotism. Those who were ready to discuss appreciated the comparison of McCain’s anti-worker record with Obama’s near perfect score.

It was exciting to be part of the quarter million union volunteers across the country, the biggest election mobilization in labor’s history, which has influenced the political climate in working class swing states and districts, laying the basis for a much larger labor movement.

The example set by labor’s top leaders talking directly with white sisters and brothers about how Obama represents their best chance for a secure future will have a lasting impact…

This year the chance to uproot ultra-right corporate political dominance is much greater. Voters want to be part of history. They see that the policies of the Bush administration, which McCain-Palin would continue, are bankrupting the country and endangering the world.

Labor’s giant effort along with massive organizing by African American, Latino, women’s and youth groups has turned historically Republican states’ House and Senate seats into battlegrounds, including the Senate seat in New Hampshire.

A landslide victory for Obama and Congress will open the door for big new struggles to organize workers into unions and place the needs of working families front and center in this economic crisis.

Incidentally Joelle Fishman is also the daughter-in-law of the late Victor Perlo, an economist and Party member who spied for the Soviet Union inside the U.S. Government in the 1930s and ’40s.

Below is a video of Joelle Fishman speaking at the New Haven Peoples Center at the Communist Party’s 2009 Amistad award dinner. Listen to Fishman praise Barack Obama and the communist effort to elect him.

At the end, Fishman hands out awards to Party members Brian Steinberg and Dorothy Johnson on behalf of the Connecticut Communist Party.

Rosa DeLauro is no stranger to communist causes.

In the 1980s she was executive director for Countdown ‘87 a national campaign to stop U.S. military aid to the Nicaraguan Contras – who were then fighting the Marxist-Leninist led Sandinistas.

A decade later, Congresswoman DeLauro was a co-sponsor of H.R. 950, the Job Creation and Infrastructure Restoration Act of 1997 . This Bill was promoted by the Los Angeles Labor Coalition for Public Works Jobs and the New York Coalition for Public Works Jobs – both of which were led by Communist Party USA members or supporters.

In recent times DeLauro has co-sponsored, H. Res. (House Resolution) 68, calling for the U.S. to abide by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. This Resolution is supported by several Communist Party USA influenced organizations, including the Greater New Haven Peace Council, which is led by Party linked activists Al Marder and Henry Lowendorf.

The Greater New Haven Peace Council is affiliated to the Communist Party initiated U.S. Peace Council which is in turn affiliated to the communist dominated and former Soviet front World Peace Council.

New Haven’s Al Marder is a vice president of the World Peace Council.

Rosa DeLauro clearly has ties to the Communist Party USA, including to Joelle Fishman, the Party official specifically charged with organizing support for “approved” Democratic Party candidates.

We should also not forget that the Communist Party USA maintains close ties to several U.S. adversaries including the governments of China, Cuba, Venezuela and with the still powerful Russian Communist Party – many of which have records of spying on the United States, or attempting to influence internal U.S. policy

DeLauro has the ear of the Speaker of the House and has the power to influence the make up of Congressional Committees.

Should her ties to Joelle Fishman and the Communist Party Party USA, be a cause for concern?

Are there security implications here?

    You have a cow and a bull. The bull is depressed because it has spent its life living a lie. It goes away for two weeks and comes back after a taxpayer-paid sex-change operation. You now have two cows. One makes milk; the other doesn't. You try to sell the transgender cow but its lawyer sues you for discrimination. You lose in court and have to sell the milk-generating cow to pay the damages. You now have one rich, transgender, non-milk-producing cow.

    You change your business to beef. PETA pickets your farm. Jesse Jackson makes a speech in your driveway. Cruz Bustamante calls for higher farm taxes to help "working cows". Hillary Clinton calls for the nationalization of 1/7 of your farm "for the children" (It Takes a Village). Gray Davis signs a law giving your farm to Mexico. The L.A. Times quotes five anonymous cows claiming you groped their teats.

    You declare bankruptcy and shut down all operations. The cow starves to death. The L.A. Times` analysis shows your business failure as Bush's fault.


    That link is the best thread I've ever read on FR. It explains all!

    I caught on to what was happening when I read about the "Apple Scare". The quasi joke above about covers it.

    Apal involved NRDC, TIDES, ABC, Fenton Communications… David Fenton still boasts on how it got him his start – his pal Drummond Pikes gave him the start up money. They're both friendly with the weather-underground crew. David Fenton was a photographer for them.

    They put most of the small Apple Orchards out of business. They're monsters thereagain they're Marxists who believe the end justifies the means.

    We wanted tort reform but the Dems refused – no wonder.

    Please check out the link posted above – it will tell you all you need to know on what's happening – see whose backing NRDC etc.

    Thanks Trevor for all you're doing.

  2. YES!!! This woman is a threat not only to the country but to the very constituents she claims to represent which is mostly a poor black area. She'd never get elected if it wasn't for the unions and acorn cheating for her.

    Here's a picture of her w/ ACORN. I despise how she acts like she gives a damn while she and her husband laugh all the way to the bank –

    She's pushing S 875 – her buddies Dodd, Waxman, and others pushed the prior bills.

    Rosa DeLauro married to Stanley Greenberg, boasts Monsanto as one of his clients, and receives the largest donations from agribusiness PAC's of just about anyone in Congress.

    Our food safety system was trashed in 1995 (Clintons) by Sec of Agriculture, Ann Veneman (Board member of Monsanto). She appointed Dan Amstutz (VP of Cargill) who wrote the World Trade Organization Agreement on Agriculture.  Unlike GATT, WTO has major clout from trade sanctions and control of 90% of the international trade.  (See The WTO and the Politics of GMO.) 

    The World Trade Organization:

    HR 875 via an FDA release indicate all food will be tracked and all food producers will have food inspections.  With the threat of fines up to a million dollars a day, this will eliminate all the independent farms that have acted as a check on Corporate AG.

    Lots of suspect foods in the news over the past year but the eggs are a doozy.


    In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband’s firm lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.

    It deconstructs what is left of the American economy. It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies, out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer.

    The chance to rebuild the economy based on farming, ranching, gardens, food production, natural health, and all the jobs, tools and connected occupations has been and continues to be eliminated.

    This puts all US food and farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency.

    It resembles the Kissinger Plan!!!

    It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus THREATENING NATIONAL SECURITY.

    It would end the Uruguay Round Agreement Act of 1994, which put US sovereignty and US law under perfect protection!

    Kissenger & McLaren are closely associated with Blackstone Inc., a company that started in 1985 (I haven't been able to discover where they got their start-up money) and became a conglomerate under the Clintons. Their board is full of ex-Clintonites, though the right are in there as well, money being the great equalizer.

    The co-founders say they got the name "Blackstone" from their own names but one could speculate…

    I depise them all!!! Out with all the incumbents – period!!!

  3. Joelle Fishman's husband is Mike Fishman a Teamster Union boss. At the very beginning of the Tea Party protests (first few weeks) it was Mrs Fishman who put all her effort into crying racism. I attended one of the first events and there were no racist or even slanderous remarks made by Tea Party members. She updated her blog (entry has since been deleted) claiming that she had witnessed racism. I asked her for an example and she couldnt provide one-after I pushed the issue she called me the racist for asking her about the racism she claimed to have witnessed. Later in the week the narrative from the CT Communist Party was to inject racism into any opposition efforts. Also from New Haven is a Union inspired Rock Band actively promoted by Fishman. One of their singles explains how you may just (accidentally) die if you oppose the Union. My write on this is here
