Representative Barbara Lee, a hardcore leftist, tweeted Friday that President Trump is militarizing the White House and putting the executive branch in the hands of an extremist, meaning John Kelly. She herself is as extreme as one gets.
By putting Gen John Kelly in charge, Pres Trump is militarizing the White House & putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist.

Rep. Lee of California’s 9th district, who famously said global warming will make women into prostitutes, battled with President Trump on what she called the ‘failed’ embargo of Cuba. She demanded Trump open up trade and normalize relations, all while Cuba continues to be a sponsor of terrorism and a brutal oppressor of its own people.
She has served as a propagandist for Fidel Castro and elicited praise from him for it during and after her many trips to the island nation.
She has been referred to as a communist though she prefers the more euphemistic word “socialist’.
Her history as a hardcore leftist
Lee then worked for Shirley Chisholm who had affiliations with Communist Party-fronts, and then for Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (now Democratic Socialists of America) Vice Chair, Ron Dellums.
Lee served first as an aide to her mentor and predecessor in her House seat, Rep. Ron “Red” Dellums, and later as a California assemblywoman and state senator. However, less known is Lee’s service on the national coordinating committee of the “Committees of Correspondence,” an organization that splintered from the Communist Party USA in 1991. Angela Davis, her good friend, the three-time Communist Party candidate for vice president of the United States, served by her side.
Declassified documents from the National Archives, posted to J. Michael Waller’s PoliticalWarfare.org blog, reveal that Ms. Lee has been promoting the cause of Caribbean communism since the early 1980s.
Ms. Lee “provided counterintelligence support to the regime in Grenada in 1980, tipping off the Cuban-backed government to a possible anti-communist spy in the office of Marxist-Leninist Premier Maurice Bishop.”
Nevertheless, Lee was sworn into the House of Representatives in 1998, taking Dellums old seat.
Lee worked tirelessly to promote the New Jewel communist agenda in Congress. At every step, she actively opposed the Reagan administration’s anti-communist strategy.
She worked repeatedly to fight Ron Reagan every step of the way in his fight against communism in the hemisphere. She’s still fighting. A 2009 report by the editorial board of the Washington Times details the Oakland congresswoman’s shenanigans.
Lee promotes – and has always promoted – the values of socialism, communism and anti-Americanism.
In April 2009, during one of more than two dozen trips to Cuba, Lee led a congressional delegation which included fellow Congressional Black Caucus members, Emanuel Cleaver, Marcia Fudge and Bobby Rush to Havana, Cuba for a meeting with Raul Castro. The meeting took place in secret without the customary presence of a U.S. State Department official.
In addition to membership in Progressive Democrats of America and the Congressional Progressive Caucus, she receives endorsement from the Council for a Livable World as well as ongoing support from the SEIU and pro-abortion lobby group, EMILY’s List.
Lee has come out in support of cop killer Joanne Chesimard and she recently mourned the death of Fidel Castro.
My thoughts & prayers are with the Cuban people. We must continue to build on the progress we’ve made strengthening ties between our nations pic.twitter.com/s1GdHOcMRb
