This was brought to my attention when I was reading a Glenn Beck book, and while it has been brought to my attention that Cleon Skousen is a “kook” and someone who is off his rocker – I have researched his biography on several sites.

While this may not have been actually listed in a communist party manifesto, it is interesting to note that a law enforcement officer who served in the FBI and as a Chief of police is considered a nut by some.

I can understand that this may make it be an article that you might take with a bit more of a grain of salt, considering his time in the FBI and the actual list of items that have actually been accomplished, this is still a scary list to behold.

Whether or not this is an actual communist document – this is certainly a list of things that have been accomplished by the progressives in this country. A party, I might certainly add, that have HISTORICAL ties, very long and deep ties, to the Marxist, Socialists and Fascists. 

Now of course, they have other names like Third Way and Democratic, but their ties go way back to the socialist/communist movement.

Considering the Communist Manifesto (which is an actual communist document) leans very much towards what this document purports, it isn’t a stretch to think that this man might have been a bit less nutsy than some might wish to have us think. I have included the 10 planks of the communist manifesto below.

Believe what you want – this document from 1963 does indeed show a line of movement that has been accomplished by the left in this country in small bits and bites.

I felt that I had to reveal what a commentor mentioned to me – although the facts were seriously slanted towards discrediting this list.

I might mention that I find it interesting that he went to lengths to discredit this list when most of it has come true. But, I’m sure that’s just lucky coincidence – right?

PLEASE take a look at the comments below – the original comment from a biased individual, my original reply and then another reply after I went to this site: and got very similar messages from the communist site from their own documents. You be the judge!


Communist Goals (1963)

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals



Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.  [What was Obama just in Russia talking about?]

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.  [same]

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. [same]

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.  [No Ko, China, Iran, Cuba]

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. [Done]

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. [same]

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.  [same]

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.   [had been done but Germany fooled ’em]

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. [done]

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. [done]

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) [done]

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.[done]

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.[done – pledge of allegiance?]

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. [done]

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. [done]

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.  [done]

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.  [done]

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.  [done]

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. [done]

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. [done]

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. [done]

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”  [done]

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”  [done – certainly can’t have anything patriotic – must be crucifixes in pee or something]

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. [done]

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. [done]

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” [done]

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”  [done]

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”  [done]

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.  [done]

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”  [done]

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.  [done – in high school and college – I wasn’t taught pre czar era much]

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.    [done]

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.  [done]

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.  [not done]

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.  [done]

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.  [working]

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].  [done]

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.  [done]

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.  [done]

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.  [done]

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.  [done]

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.  [done]

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.  [done]

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.  [New Obama appointee is an internationalist who believes US law should be superceded by international law including World Court]

  1. This is just another bit of political rhetoric that is not rooted in historical fact.

    The biggest problem is that these were never goals of the American Communist party, or Communists in general. In fact, this 1963 list was written by a rather kooky guy named Cleon Skousen. He was a conservative writer of that time. There is no historical reason to ascribe accuracy to his representation of Communists’ objectives.

    FYI, if you DO believe Skousen’s idiosyncratic view of things, remember that he wrote another book, in which he argued that banks and industrialists in the West were behind the rise of Communism.

    • I find it interesting that you try so hard to discredit a conservative writer with labels such as kooky and idiosyncratic.

      As a matter of fact, there was a lot in the industrialist story that is dirty, including in the South American countries, etc. They did prop up a lot of socialistic dictators to get what they wanted. Facts which you would normally argue from the other direction were we talking on a different subject.

      He was an FBI agent, a police chief and a well respected man in many circles, including religious.

      Interesting you didn’t mention that.

      I also find it interesting that you mention historical when your party generally excuses historical references such as Mussolini, Wilson, Hitler and their ties to socialism, progressivism, communism and eventual large part of the committee that FDR had set up, including Alger Hiss, a card carrying Communist Party member.

      The facts are out there, that the Communist/Socialist parties have had agendas in this country. This list may not actually be a historical party document, but it certainly has an interesting historical parallel to the leftist party political plans in this country, which in my mind lends SOME credence to it.

      It’s very interesting how spot on he was. Golly.
      Wonder why that was?

      Hmm. 36 years later and we can point back at 43 out of 45 being accomplished. Nostradamus wishes he could be that accurate without people putting spins on his puzzling quatrains.

      Historical ACCURACY shouldn’t give any credence, now should it? 95.5% accuracy. Wow – stupid man didn’t know anything did he?

    • Directly from the Communist Party website – nononono – no agenda here – if you want to swim further in it, you can see it yourself on their site.

      There is whole pages of this stuff, and in the midst of all the rhetoric is exactly what is in the above list. You have to read for it, but it is in there in dribs and drabs.

      What I start to think after almost an hour of reading this stuff on their site is that the list above might not have been their document, but it certainly encapsulates a lot of their will. Read on – this is a small fraction of what is on their site.

      An Anti-Monopoly Program

      At a future stage of struggle when the anti-monopoly people’s coalition is growing and strong, that coalition will put forward a program of public policies and government practices. Struggles on many of these issues have already begun, and some may have won important victories in an earlier stage of struggle, which a developed anti-monopoly program will build on. As part of that coalition, the Communist Party will propose radical democratic demands aimed at curbing the political, economic, and ideological power of the monopolies. Our suggestions will include (unless they are already won at an earlier stage):

      The building of a mass people’s party capable of contending for governmental power, a party free of domination by any monopoly interests;
      Removal from the electoral system of the financial contributions of monopolies, to be replaced by public funding and guarantees of honest elections where each vote counts and all votes are counted;
      Replacing the foreign policy of preemptive strikes and dictating to the world in the interests of U.S.-based transnationals with a policy of international cooperation to solve problems of war and aggression, poverty, education, environment, health, and development;
      Full restoration and expansion of the Bill of Rights and all democratic rights; the complete separation of church and state;
      Full legal protection from hate crimes and racial profiling, and the outlawing of oral and written racist propaganda;
      Implementation of affirmative action and compensatory programs to achieve actual equality for the racially and nationally oppressed and women;
      Prevention of the “freedom” of monopolies to move assets in ways that harm workers and communities without full compensation; the guaranteed right to a job at living wages or full income through public works and public service jobs; the growth of public ownership of industries;
      Elimination of management prerogatives coupled with the expansion of workers and union rights to prevent socially harmful management decisions;
      Full funding for education, affordable housing programs, day care, Social Security, a universal health care program, youth job training and recreation programs, and cultural programs;
      Creation of a social fund starting at $200 billion to make up for past and continuing wrongs and to help achieve equality in facilities and infrastructure for communities of the racially and nationally oppressed;
      No taxes for workers and low and middle income people; progressive taxation of the wealthy and private corporations;
      Military budget slashed to a fraction of current spending; and,
      All media to be free of monopoly ownership.
      A Labor-led People’s Party back to top
      Currently, the organizational forms of political and electoral independence for the working class and its allies mainly utilizes support for candidates who utilize the Democratic line to run for office. Despite the variety of new political forms and experiences of the labor and people’s movements, the difficulties placed on organizing successful “third” parties remain a barrier to fully developing a political party free from control of the monopolies. Restrictions on full democracy, such as excessive signature requirements for candidates, big money for advertising, and other obstacles, need to be eliminated in order to allow the fullest democratic participation of all people.

      The forms of political and organizational independence that are currently developing towards a mass people’s party include:

      labor’s independent electoral apparatus;
      independent election financing;
      labor candidates;
      independent electoral apparatus in the African American community and other oppressed communities;
      progressive get-out-the-vote and voter registration campaigns;
      the growth of Internet-based activist networks;
      organizations of voters partisan to specific people’s issues;
      movements running on the Democratic line, or on two lines, or as independents;
      Communists running for office—as communists or as independents for non-partisan offices, or as part of progressive slates; and
      organizational forms that provide unity among these different forces and movements.
      Independent election tickets and parties, when they support the current central objective of defeating the ultra-right and do not weaken that effort, are also part of the process that objectively prepares the ground for a powerful people’s anti-monopoly party in the future.

      The process of developing a national mass people’s party based on the working class, the nationally oppressed, women, youth, and other progressive forces cannot mature until the anti-monopoly stage of struggle. During the current stage of struggle against the ultra-right, the strategy to win necessarily includes a section of the transnationals and the Democratic Party, in whose national leadership certain transnationals and some of the rich play a big role. In the anti-monopoly stage, a party capable of challenging for governmental power can and must be free of domination by any sector of monopoly. It must be a party in which labor and the other core forces play the leading role, acting in alliance with all working people and progressive social movements.

      The struggle for a program of demands to radically curb the power of the transnationals will take place both through a people’s party and through non-electoral forms at all levels—workplace grassroots forms and neighborhood, city, state, and national coalitions. These organizational forms of struggle can gradually coalesce into on-going multi-issue coalitions and a general anti-monopoly front of struggle. The methods of struggle engaged in by such a mass upsurge may include demonstrations, petitioning, picketing, boycotts, civil disobedience, and strikes, mass strikes and general strikes, in addition to electoral struggle.

      It is possible and desirable that a people’s party and anti-monopoly coalition win governmental control at local, city, state, and even the national level. The goal of this governmental participation is to implement those parts of the program of demands not already won through mass struggle.

      Curbing the power of the monopolies weakens capitalism as a whole. The building of a people’s party and the general anti-monopoly coalition shifts the balance of forces incrementally toward the qualitative change that opens the direct struggle for working people’s power and socialism.

    • Hi: I will just ask you to go to and pull the article Program of the Communist Party USA and READ it and educate yourself if you don’t believe communism is taking over in this nation. You have your head in the SAND probably HOPING it will go away but it won’t and you will be hit read hard in that behind sticking up OUT of the sand. I pulled the membership list from Socialist Democrats of America off the web site several years ago and I also pulled the membership with their pictures on it from the Progressive Caucus which is a communist organization. Oh, yes, they make it sound GREAT but look at German, Russia and other communist countries and their outcome and I don’t think you would be HAPPY under that ideology. It is a SHAME that so MANY Americans are SO UNEDUCATED and uninformed as to what is going on in this nation. I HOPE you wake up and SEE what is happening to our wonderful nation.

  2. It’s time for a real revolution! When the citizens rise up against the corruption and inside political dealings, then we will have FREEDOM again, the kind of freedom our forefathers had for a very brief period of time.

    Down with LIBERALS!!
    Down with CONSERVATIVES!!

    If you identify with one of these groups, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.


    Liberals seek to imprison your thoughts through such fascist tactics as Political Correctness and social blackmail.

    Conservatives seek to imprison your body through tactics like the ruthless perversion of our capitalist system and an over-abundance of laws that only the insiders know well enough to manipulate.

    Revolution is coming.
    Revolution is coming.
    Revolution is coming.

    • Holy Schnikes


      What’s your answer then? What’s the platform you might be esposing?

    • Unfortunately The powers taht be are going to use foreign military to control the people. (Mexican and Australian.) They know our own soldiers won’t fire on their own people.
