Heroin in America

“How did 5 million become addicted? The epidemic began with a worldview.” Marvin Olasky

Overview of an epidemic

Marvin Olasky, World magazine, August 6, 2016, p. 33

america-mental-illness1America’s opioid epidemic hit the headlines just before the New Hampshire primary in February, as mournful parents asked presidential candidates what they would do about it. The epidemic quickly fell off the front pages as contenders moved on to debate how long their fingers were and other silly things, but the tragedy is not going away.

How big: About 46,000 Americans died last year from overdoses of drugs, mostly opioids: heroin but also highly addictive, man-made, morphine-like pain relievers such as oxycodone, Percocet, and hydrocodone. Opioids reduce the perception of pain and can bring temporary elation, but a dose too high depresses the respiratory system, leaving blue-lipped users not breathing, and sometimes dying.

A Catholic Spring

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring…in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church.” Sandy Newman

“John Podesta and his allies created them [Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, etc.] to subvert the church’s teachings and witness—produce the rebellion—not advance them. The groups are progressive [liberals on steroids] and Democrat—not Catholic.” Robert P. George

Non-Catholics for Church ‘Reform’

Clinton allies mock the faithful and demand they embrace secular dogmas.

John Podesta at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 25.

Arthur Schlesinger Sr. said that anti-Catholicism is “the deepest bias in the history of the American people.” I don’t know if that’s true anymore, as I don’t run into much anti-Catholicism from ordinary Americans.

Yet I can’t say I’m surprised by the noxious anti-Catholic bigotry contained in emails exchanged between leading progressives, Democrats and Hillary Clinton operatives. These WikiLeaks-published emails confirm what has been evident for years. Many elites, having embraced secular progressivism as not merely a political view but a religion, loathe traditional faiths that refuse to yield to its dogmas.

John Halpin of the Center for American Progress, writing in 2011 to Democrat bigwig John Podesta, was exercised over the fact that Rupert Murdoch and Robert Thomson, then-managing editor of The Wall Street Journal, “are raising their kids Catholic.” The horror

“Friggin’ Murdoch,” Mr. Halpin went on, “baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.” He evidently has a problem with Mr. Murdoch wanting his kids to be baptized where Jesus was. But Halpin’s complaint went further: “Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the [Supreme Court] and think tanks to the media and social groups.” Continue reading

The Marxists Within

“I attended the People’s Summit in Chicago with 3,000 democratic socialists and old line communists earlier this year. They were indistinguishable. Bernie Sanders, a communist in everything but name, is backed by Democratic Socialist of America (DSA) and the Communist Party USA. Sanders has deceived millions with his ‘make America like Sweden and Denmark’ rhetoric. In reality, he has backed Stalinist and communist movements his entire life.” Trevor Loudon

“In 1994 the formerly anti-communist AFL-CIO was captured by John Sweeney and his DSA comrades. The anti-communist clause was removed from the AFL-CIO’s constitution, and Marxist flooded in. Now all major unions are under Marxist control.” Ibid


A new documentary by Trevor Loudon exposes the subversion of our own government.

For more than 30 years, New Zealander Trevor Loudon has been obsessively researching the radical left’s infiltration and subversion of American government. He has written two books, Barack Obama and the Enemies Within and The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress, and toured all over the United States, addressing hundreds of conservative, Republican, Tea Party, and religious groups to sound the alarm. Now Loudon has written and directed a new documentary, The Enemies Within, the riveting culmination of his work to expose the Communist presence that still threatens to collapse the United States from within.

Check out the trailer for The Enemies Within here, and order your copy of the DVD here.

The indefatigable Mr. Loudon took time out from touring to answer a few questions for FrontPage Mag.

Mark TapsonHow did you, as a New Zealander, become passionate about investigating the infiltration of the American government by our enemies?

Trevor Loudon: It started back in 1984 when our newly-elected socialist Labour government banned nuclear warships from our harbors. This destroyed NZ’s military alliance with your country. I interviewed a NZ government spy who had infiltrated the highest levels of the NZ Communist Party. He trained in Moscow in 1983 and participated in the planning of the NZ government’s anti-nuclear policies.

I began to research the influence of the far left on mainstream political parties, which lead me inevitably to researching communist influence in the U.S. Democratic Party. It was during this research that I uncovered the connections between Barack Obama and Hawaiian communist Frank Marshall Davis, and also the communist roots of former Obama “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones.
