Chattanooga Tea Party Hosts Author Trevor Loudon Saturday

Friday, November 1, 2013

Author and speaker Trevor Loudon will be the guest speaker at the Chattanooga Tea Party Saturday at 6 p.m. at Western Sizzlin in Ooltewah.  

Mr. Loudon's newest book, "The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress" is designed to expose, in layman's terms, the comprehensive communist, socialist and extreme progressive infiltration of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, said officials. 

"The Enemies Within" profiles 14 senators and more than 50 representatives and their ties to Communist Party U.S.A., Democratic Socialists of America, Workers World Party, and The Institute for Policy Studies, Council for a Livable World and other anti-American organizations, said officials.

Mr. Loudon is an activist and political researcher from Christchurch New Zealand. He believes in freedom with responsibility, not freedom from responsibility. His ideal society is one in which government is confined to protecting its citizens from criminals and external enemies and he believes in working with all those who are moving in broadly the same direction. Mr. Loudon is also the founder and editor of, a rapidly growing website with the goal of unlocking the covert side of U.S. and global politics.
