The Communist Plot to Destroy America Revealed
Barry Nussbaum: Welcome to ATP Report. I'm Barry Nussbaum. Our very special guest is here with us today, Clare Lopez. She's a friend of ATP. She's an international scholar. She's known around the world for her expertise in international terrorism, jihad, many things in the intelligence community that she can't talk about, i.e., the CIA, and she's the Founder/President of Lopez Liberty, LLC. Welcome back, Clare.
Clare Lopez: Hello, Barry. Thank you for having me. I'm glad to be back with you.
Barry Nussbaum: Me too. In this segment, we are going to discuss and devote the entire show to something you sent me over the past couple of days that, when I did my research into your very scholarly research, shocked the heck out of me. It's the excerpts from a book you have found called The Naked Communist. It's a 1958 book by an American political theorist named Cleon Skousen. He was an FBI agent, a lawyer, highly educated, wrote a lot of books, but this one specifically has been reprinted many times. There are over a million copies in print, and I'm shocked by what he predicted in the 1950s. He talked about a communist plot to take over America, and he explained how they plan to do it. This is a guy whose book is recommended by Glenn Beck and Ben Carson. They talk about a plan that is right there in black and white for everyone to read, and I want you to explain it to us. So let's start out by me asking you why is it nobody knows this story? Because when I read it, I thought, oh, my gosh. This is a narrative of what's happening every day in America, Clare.
Clare Lopez: Yeah, absolutely right, Barry, and the thing is that W. Cleon Skousen and wrote this book published at least in 1958. But it was based on testimony given before Congress, the House Committee on un-American Activities, and also, of course, Joseph McCarthy's Senate hearings on the same topic from at least three or five or so years prior to that. And so Skousen wanted to make that testimony from former communists more available to Americans, and that's why he wrote this book, The Naked Communist and this really attention-grabbing Chapter which contains the title of the chapter, 45 Communist Goals of Communism today.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, that's what we're going to talk about today. We're going to talk about it. I'm going to give you bullet points. You explain it, and by the end, everybody is going to be as shocked as I am having read it for the first time over the past couple of days. So let's talk about Chapter 13. He talks about 45 goals. We don't have two hours, but we picked out a couple. Let's talk about a few. Number 15 says you want to capture one or both of the political parties in the United States, and it seems like the Democrat Party, which has become the Democrat Socialist Party in America, governors, mayors, councilmen, city attorneys, state's attorneys aren't they already there? Is that happening?
Clare Lopez: I think we can put a checkmark next to that one. Yeah. The Democratic Socialists of America is essentially a communist organization. And if you listen to somebody like Trevor Loudon, who is probably this country's foremost expert on that kind of subject, the infiltration into our political system. He will talk about the Democratic Socialists of America as a communist organization, and how many of the Democratic Party's members belong to it.
Barry Nussbaum: Number 17, Clare. Get control of the schools, use them as transmission belts for socialism and communism propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of the teacher's associations. Put the party line in the textbooks.
Clare Lopez: This one is just so critical and, you know, we're talking about a book and a plan that was laid out 70 years ago or more and this one about getting inside the schools, getting inside the curriculum, the textbook textbooks and the and the teachers unions. This is perhaps, maybe the most important bullet point or point of the whole list. And now we've had how many generations since that point in time since the 1950s turned out of our schools, and you wonder, you know, where these ideas are coming from. You get these Mic on the street interviews, right? They go to college campuses and things and, you know, with a mic. Yes, I'm a communist. Yes, I believe in socialism. What is socialism? Oh, well, it's free stuff. They don't even know what it is, but they've been taught and programmed to spout what is essentially Marxism.
Barry Nussbaum: Number 20, infiltrate the press.
Clare Lopez: This has to be right up there next to the schools. Absolutely. I was just talking about this just a little bit ago, and it is about an agency of the Chinese Communist Party, which is called the United Front Work Department. It is answerable directly to the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, and its job is propaganda. Its information operations. It's every bit as widespread and funded and backed and sophisticated as the Soviet communist Comintern ever was and yes. They are here in the United States, and they have control of all of our major media.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, as a corollary, number 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
Clare Lopez: Exactly. So if we look at reports about this United Front Work Department and it's online, we can see that their targets were the mainstream media outlets like ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, so forth. And social media, Facebook, obviously, Tik-Tok, which all the kids listen to and YouTube and print media, well, print and online media like The Washington Post and The New York Times. Every one of these media outlets and or their parent companies have business interests inside of China, and that's where the leverage goes because they don't want to lose that market of one point four billion or whatever it is, people in China. And so they kowtow to the Chinese communist line and the United Front Work Department manages all of it.
Barry Nussbaum: Clare, tell our viewers how they can find you, please.
