The Communist Conspiracy Lessons from the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
Vladimir Lenin -Conspiracy is so essential a condition of an organization of this kind that all other conditions must be made to conform with it.(senate doc #117, 84 th congress) -First we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia, then we will encircle the United States, which will be the last bastion of capitalism. We will not have to attack. It will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.(HCUA, 1957)
Title 50 - WAR AND NATIONAL DEFENSE CHAPTER 23 – INTERNAL SECURITY Communist Control Act of 1954 The Congress finds and declares that the Communist Party of the United States, although purportedly a political party, is in fact an instrumentality of a conspiracy to overthrow the Government of the United States. It constitutes an authoritarian dictatorship within a republic, demanding for itself the rights and privileges accorded to political parties, but denying to all others the liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. The policies and programs of the Communist Party are secretly prescribed for it by the foreign leaders of the world Communist movement.
Title 50 - WAR AND NATIONAL DEFENSE CHAPTER 23 – INTERNAL SECURITY Communist Control Act of 1954 The Communist Party acknowledges no constitutional or statutory limitations upon its conduct or upon that of its members. The peril inherent in its operation arises not from its numbers, but from its failure to acknowledge any limitation as to the nature of its activities, and its dedication to the proposition that the present constitutional Government of the United States ultimately must be brought to ruin by any available means, Therefore, the Communist Party should be outlawed.
HCUA, enacted 1946 The Committee on Un-American Activities, as a whole or by subcommittee, is authorized to make from time to time investigations of (i) the extent, character, and objects of un-American propaganda activities in the United States, (ii) the diffusion within the United States of subversive and un-American propaganda that is instigated from foreign countries or of a domestic origin and attacks the principle of the form of government as guaranteed by our Constitution.
HCUA 1957 Nineteen hundred and fifty-seven has been one of the greatest years of triumph for the Kremlin and its confederates throughout the free World. The Communist operation, above and below the surface, is part of a worldwide conspiracy backed by all of the material, financial, and educational resources of the 900 million people of the Soviet Empire. The Kremlin is reaching 1,000 times the circulation of the Daily Worker through political propaganda which floods this country every day, as part of a multibillion dollar operation. “Being part of a conspiratorial movement, their essence is deception.” (SCUA March 29, 1944)
Examples of subversion Alger Hiss, State Dept, was at Yalta when the decision was made to commit 700 million humans to communist enslavement. (Sen Int Sec Sub 83 rd congress, 1 st session) Castro could not have brought communism to Cuba without the help of the State Dept (SISS 86 th congress ) The Gov of the US does not look with favor upon governments unfriendly to the soviet union on the Soviet boarder.

Religious Testimony to the HCUA
an Australian physician, surgeon, and psychiatrist, lay preacher, expert on communism "Inherent within the theory of communism," he said, "is the greatest program of murder, slaughter, and insanity conceivable. To the Communists, murder, treachery, and torture are moral acts." Dr. Schwarz characterized communism as a pseudoscience that bases its doctrine on three points: First, that there is no God, there are no moral absolutes, no right or wrong; The Ten Commandments are invalid. second, that man is a material machine, completely describable in terms of chemistry and physics, with no value and no continuity of life; third, that communism is economic determinism. Dr. Schwarz, HCUA, 1957
Dr. Daniel A. Poling, HCUA 1957 editor of the Christian Herald: Communism is a driving dynamic faith. It has all of the passion that we associate with the early Christian church. But its basic tenet, its first principle, is atheism. It not only disregards, but it refutes and denies, the Christian ethic. It has absolutely no concern for the individual. We believe that government is made for man, and not man for government. Communism teaches and practices that the individual is not only the servant of, but the slave of, the state. He exists for the state. His personal well-being is of no consideration at all if the strength of the state is in any way mitigated or jeopardized by this individual. It is universal Enslavement.
BISHOP FULTON J. SHEEN HCUA 1957 national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, auxiliary bishop of New York,: Communism is basically a philosophical system,—the existence of God and private property are both denied simultaneously by communism. If a man has no soul, he cannot allege that he has any relationships with anyone outside of the state. If he has no property, he is dependent upon the state even for his physical existence. Therefore the denial of God and the denial of freedom are both conditions of slavery.
Dr. Chiu-Yuan Hu, HCUA 1957 adviser to the Chinese mission of the General Assembly of the United Nations: Chinese Communists have physically exterminated 20 million human beings since they took over the mainland of China in 1948; that some 25 million more Chinese are in prison, brainwashing schools or in slave-labor camps; that Chinese youth from kindergarten to the university are being taught to hate America.
Dr. Chiu-Yuan Hu, HCUA 1957 It is wishful thinking the notion that the Chinese Red leadership might, at some time in the future, become independent of Moscow. All the leading Chinese Communists had been trained in Moscow and that the Chinese Communist Party is the only Communist Party which has never had a schism, split, or any serious deviation from the line as laid down by the Kremlin. There were some 50,000 Soviet advisers, technicians, and experts in Communist China today.
J. Edgar Hoover, FBI director
J. Edgar Hoover “Masters of Deceit” 1958 – Today communism is a dedicated conspiratorial group operating under modern conditions as an arm of revolution. There is no doubt that America is now the prime target of international communism. – It is an economic system, a philosophy, a political creed, psychological conditioning, educational indoctrination. They want to control everything, where you live, where you work, what your paid, what you think. What you may read and write.
J Edgar Hoover “Masters of Deceit” 1958 There are thousands of people in this country now working in secret to make it happen here. Under communism a tiny minority, perhaps 10 to 20 men would rule the US. State and local governments would be eliminated. The Constitution and all our laws would be abolished. Seen in its true light, democratic centralism is a deceptive cloak over a ruthless dictatorship.
President John F. Kennedy Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association New York City, April 27, 1961 The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
