If the Democrats win control of the House in 2018, Barbara Lee might be in leadership, or even the Speaker of the House.

The Democrats have an opportunity to win control of the House of Representatives in 2018, but they are going to lose if they continue to allow the radical left wing of their party to dominate them.

California Congresswoman Barbara Lee is a powerful force among Democrats, and she is working to become the chair of the Democratic Caucus in the House and a member of the leadership. If the Democrats win a majority of seats and gain control, she will be a driving force in the lives of Americans.

Lee comes out of the Black Panther Party and has a record of supporting the radicals who hate the American way of life. She is highly regarded by the Democrat Party and is positioned to lead her party into the future.

What is the future that Barbara Lee would like to see?

The People's Weekly World is the official newspaper of the United States Communist Party. You don't have to take my word for it, the PWW proudly states it is the continuation of the Soviet Union-backed Daily Worker newspaper on its masthead. It is a matter of public record that the Daily Worker and the U.S. Communist Party were completely owned and controlled by the Russian communist government.

The KGB and the GRU intelligence agencies used the Americans in the Communist Party and its organs like the People's Weekly World to conduct active measures against the American people and their government. The declassification of Soviet active measures came about because of Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan's efforts and President Bill Clinton's authority to declassify the Venona Papers.

There is no question that the Russians controlled the propaganda organs like the Daily Worker and its offspring the People's Weekly World.

In 2003, Lee had succeeded her boss Ronald Dellums and was an elected member of Congress. United States Representative Barbara Lee participated in an official fundraiser for the People's Weekly World newspaper on Nov. 9, 2003. This member of Congress raised money for a Russian active measures propaganda front.

According to the Communist Party's newspaper account of the event, all of the honored guests "received a special Congressional certificate from Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, in whose district the banquet was held."

That is the truth about Democrat Barbara Lee. She supports the worst human rights abusers in the world and the people who are actively trying to damage America. Voting for Barbara Lee is something most Democrats would never do, but they may do it if they vote for a House Democrat this year and make her a House leader.
