The 13 Leaders Of The Socialist Movement In Congress: David Cicilline



Cicilline is another new kid on the block.  He joined the Congressional Progressive Caucus in 2011 and is now one of its vice-chairmen.  He is known as a strong proponent of Amnesty of for illegal aliens and he joined Nancy Pelosi and a number of other socialist Members of Congress on a junket to Fidel Castro’s Cuba.


David Cicilline was born on July 15th, 1961 in Providence, Rhode Island. He grew up in the South Side of Providence. His mother – Sabra Peskin Cicilline – is Jewish while his father – John Francis “Jack” Cicilline – is Catholic. His father was an attorney in Providence defending Mafia figures in the 1970s and 1980s and he eventually became an aide to Mayor Joseph A. Doorley.

Cicilline moved to Narrangansett before he started high school. During his high school years, Cicilline served as president of his graduating class – 1979. He also participated in a civic education program entitled Close Up Washington. During this time, he began to become particularly interested in public service. Often times he would ask his parents to drop him off at Town Council meetings and school board meetings. He even managed to successfully petition for Narrangansett High School to begin teaching Italian.

After high school, he went to Brown University and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1983 with a degree in Political Science. While at Brown, he established a branch of College Democrats with his classmate – John F. Kennedy, Jr. After graduating from Brown University, he attended Georgetown University Law Center and earned a law degree in 1986.

Before turning to politics, Cicilline served in the District of Columbia as a public defender. After a few years, he then returned to Rhode Island and opened a practice in civil rights law and criminal defense. In 1995, he began his public service career in the Rhode Island House of Representatives.


Inclusion on this list is not based on the opinion of the authors or, in effect, the subjective opinions of any third party. Inclusion on this list is based upon present or past membership in the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), a caucus within Congress that has long-standing and deep ties and, in the opinion of a number of political scholars, was an arm of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) at the time of its inception. According to David Horowitz’s website: “Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) are undoubtedly socialists, though most shy away from the label. The CPC has long had ties to the far-left Institute for Policy Studies, Democratic Socialists of America (the largest Marxist group in the country), and the Communist Party USA.” Additionally, a number of authoritative articles have been written on the historical connection between the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the DSA and we encourage the reader to do independent research if the topic is of further interest.

      That is so very right. People do not get a fair chance in the courts with the corruptions that are there. Then to have pelosi on his side to go to Cuba and obama, no wonder they are giving everything away to Cuba and other countries. We don’t get nothing. They all need to be released from their jobs as they are traitors to our country.

        Did you see the latest — thousands of cuban ” refugees ” waiting to come to America under obozo’s new cuban agreement.

      Wherever there are Democrats in control, that state is super corrupt, i.e., CA also.

    13 SOCIALISTS IN CONGRESS; it is more like 80% are freaking socialists; AMERICA ARE YOU GOING TO CAPITULATE TO THESE failed bast666rds; Europe is a mess from this socialist crap; and 50% of Americans are too stupid to get it. All these ignorant fools buying into this theology are simply either too stupid or too lazy to know that you get out of life what work you put into it.

    • Rosech Levy

      No, many others are outright communists i.e., Hillary for one! How did we idiotically vote in these people? They lied, we believed and now look where we are. We did not vet them and they do not want us to vet any invaders on our soil. Time to boot them out of America to go live in a socialist or communist regime and no passport or permission to re-enter OUR country ever! They will go without benefits, salary, assets, etc. They don’t deserve even the time of day! I have suffered with Honda and he is a crook as are most Democrats everywhere!

      • regulus30

        WE DID NOT VOTE FOR THEM;; the system has been corrupted.

      • Gerry Costa

        Rosech — I did as much research on obozo as I could before he was put into office. If other people would have done the same he may have gotten zero votes from American citizens but unfortunately people didn’t. He has been a POS his whole life and is a puppet to the world’s elitists who want a New World Order with the U.S. just another 3rd world country. I believe he was placed into office by these people and NOT voted in.

    • Lorene B

      I believe I read somewhere that there are more like 70 in the Progressive Caucus. In the 1960s, it was common knowledge that if a Socialist (Communist) could run from public office, they could get elected.

    How did this work out for us?????
    Subject: The Crown Jewel of the Democratic Party
    While they are gloating here is a Clinton Refresher course.
    Subject:The Crown Jewel of the Democratic Party
    The Shady Lady !!

    A good review, clarification of events, for those of us who weren’t paying good enough attention then :-)

    When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to
    assume authority over a health care reform. Even after
    threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in
    a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the
    American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies,
    promotion, and other efforts.

    Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting
    a female attorney general. Her first two selections
    were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to
    withdraw their names from consideration. Next she
    chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as
    “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that
    Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch
    Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens
    of deaths of women and children.

    Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the
    head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was
    her selection. When a little probing led to the
    discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to
    be withdrawn from consideration.

    Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to
    make some more recommendations. She chose former law
    partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster
    for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the
    Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel
    went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and
    Kennedy was forced to resign.

    Many younger votes will have no knowledge of
    “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered
    travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and
    the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She
    managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired.
    This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and
    caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee,
    Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the
    enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A
    jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

    Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to
    recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the
    position of Director of White House security. When
    Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of
    about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the
    widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly
    Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone,
    and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White
    House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its
    White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of
    service to seven presidents.

    Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of
    sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put
    in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal
    defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the
    debacle was:

    She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones
    lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled
    with Ms. Jones.

    She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led
    to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After
    $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s
    investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill
    lying about and later admitting his affairs.

    Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his
    license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a
    grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House
    of Representatives.

    Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of
    justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do
    not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I
    don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

    After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return
    an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and
    artwork that she had stolen.

    What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year
    of this type low-life mess?

    Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly
    incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State
    and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation
    – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to
    her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”

    Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting
    Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!
    Please pass this on. Our way of life may depend on

      Very well said, and there was some enlightening information here. Thanks so much. It is so sad that our Government will protect her thru thick or thin. I am afraid that she will get off scott free, but I hope that we will have a Republican for 2016, just hope we pick the right one this time.

      Between the Clintongues and the muslim impostor in the former White House exists the greatest collection of treasonous acts to include sedition and perjury in our history! Murder, mayhem, theft, rapes, pedophilia, homosexual and LGBT perverted rights, along with countless other crimes against America, have been the SOP of the liberal ideology destroying America! These psychos amassed enormous amounts of illegal contributions both campaign and illicit payoffs from America’s enemies over the years. All the while the liberal (communist) Americans are selling their souls and selling out the country in an insane display of mass suicide! A prime example of the famous statement that America cannot survive it’s fools! Our nation is failing to learn from history and is destined to repeat the outcome of previous failed civilizations! I believe we have reached the point of no return and this next election may be too little, too late to reverse the massive damage to our nation by the current tyrannical illegitimate administration!

      They ALL have money, yeah. And they think that under socialism they would be exempt from what is forced on the masses. This is why they are such phonies and hypocrites, as far as I am concerned; socialism is nothing but a nice little name for communism.

      • KayO

        They go hand-in-hand. Communism is a government system, while socialism is a monetary system. Both put the power and money in the hands of government, and both require citizens to bend to their will without independent thought. Neither system works.

    please stop doing the red arrow barrage. Did not read. next.

  • Cindy McCarty

    Under the provision governing
    asylum (section 1158 of Title 8, U.S. Code), an alien applying for admission
    must establish that … religion [among other things] … was or will be
    at least one central reason for persecuting the applicant. Moreover, to qualify
    for asylum in the United States, the applicant must be a “refugee” as defined
    by federal law. That definition (set forth in Section 1101(a)(42)(A) of Title ,
    U.S. Code) also requires the executive branch to take account of the alien’s
    religion: The term “refugee” means (A) any person who is outside any country of
    such person’s nationality … and who is unable or unwilling to return to … that
    country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account
    of … religion [among other things] …[.] The law requires a “religious
    test.” And the reason for that is obvious. Asylum law is not a reflection of
    the incumbent president’s personal (and rather eccentric) sense of compassion.
    Asylum is a discretionary national act of compassion that is directed, by law
    not whim, to address persecution.

    The last thing America needs is socialism. Income tax in socialistic Countries is 40%. Almost half ones check goes to all their give me free programs; i .e. medical, welfare, and all handouts; leaving zero initiative to work.

Since the democrat party has destroyed the Rhode Island economy and so many WORKERS have left the state the number of representatives may be reduce from 2 to 1. Hopefully Davey will be the -1.
