Bella Dodd – A Communist Cancer is Killing Us

Communism is a fait accompli in the West yet we seldom use this disease to understand our malaise.

In 1954, Bella Dodd, a high ranking defector from the US Communist Party, warned us that Masonic Jewish central bankers are behind Communism, and this satanic cult controls the USA. This has been confirmed by the COVID hoax, gene therapy. migration, CRT, BLM and heterophobia Her book “School of Darkness”   (pdf) requires a revisit. 

The Devil and Bella Dodd (2022) is much more than a biography of Communist Party whistleblower Bella Dodd (1904- 1969.)It is a history of the Communist takeover of the US in the twentieth century. The authors establish that the goal of Communism is no less than the annihilation and enslavement of the human race. According to the Communist Manifesto, Communism seeks to abolish nothing less than “the present state of things.” (117) Hatred of Christian civilization is its motivation. All the problems that plague society today — gender dysfunction, “woke,” censorship, thought-crimes, transhumanism, migration, abortion, CRT, Agenda 2030 — manifest Communist control. Communism denies that mankind has a soul or that the Creator has a Purpose for humanity. It is a fatal Trojan Horse (Satanism) that has been accepted into our society. Mankind is satanically possessed by Organized Jewry (WEF, Rothschild central banking cartel.) 
After exposing the Communist Conspiracy to Congress, Bella Dodd was ostracized and lost her legal practice and home. She was treated like a heretic by the Communists who are the forebears of the Demonrat Party today. Zionism (Trump, False Opposition) is the midwife of Communism. Our battle is religious in nature: we either serve God or Satan. 
My only criticism: No mention of Freemasonry or Organized Jewry!  Communism is Cabalist Judaism.

Bella Dodd was a Communist Party of America (CPUSA) leader in the 1930′ s and 1940’s. Her book, “School of Darkness” (1954) reveals that Communism was a hoax perpetrated by financiers “to control the common man” and to advance world tyranny. Naturally, this important book is out-of-print and not in any used bookstores. It can be read online here. [It has recently been reprinted and is available here.]

Bella Dodd was born Maria Asunta Isabella Visono in Italy about 1904. A brilliant and dedicated woman, she graduated from Hunter College and NYU Law School. She became head of the New York State Teachers Union and was a member of the CPUSA’s National Council until 1949. 

Dodd describes Communism as “a strange secret cult” whose goal is the destruction of Western (i.e. Christian) Civilization. Millions of naive idealists (“innocents”) are tricked by its talk of helping the poor, but it cares only for power. For example, Dodd found there was no social research at party headquarters. “We are a revolutionary party, not a reform party,” she was told. (163) The goal is to destroy not to improve.


The Communist Party operates by infiltrating and subverting social institutions like the churches, schools, mass media and government. Its aim was “to create new types of human beings who would conform to the blueprint of the world they confidently expected to control.” (162)

For example, Dodd reveals that the CPUSA had 1100 members become Catholic priests in the 1930’s. It also subverted the American education system by taking over the teacher’s unions and learned societies. Only people who accepted the “materialistic, collectivist international class struggle approach” advanced. (98) 


Involving women in the war effort fitted the long-range program:


“The party did all it could to induce women to go into industry. Its fashion designers created special styles for them and its songwriters wrote special songs to spur them… War-period conditions, they planned, were to become a permanent part of the future educational program. The bourgeois family as a social unit was to be made obsolete.” (153) 

There was to be no family but the party and the state. Dodd helped organize the Congress of American Women, a forerunner of the feminist movement.

“Since it was supposedly a movement for peace, it attracted many women. But it was really only a renewed offensive to control American women… Like youth and minority groups, they are regarded as a reserve force of the revolution because they are more easily moved by emotional appeals.” (194-195) 


When FDR recognized Russia in 1933, he deliberately turned a blind eye to the CPUSA’s massive program of espionage and subversion. Liberals denied that this took place and complained about a “witch hunt.” Guess what? The “loony right” was correct. 

A new book (The Secret World of American Communism, based on newly opened Kremlin archives, confirms that CPUSA was a puppet of Moscow and the Roosevelt and Truman administrations were practically run by Soviet agents, Alger Hiss, Harry Hopkins and Harry Dexter White to name a few.

The war years saw the CPUSA actually renounce the class struggle and join the so-called “Roosevelt camp of progress” which included “progressive capitalists.” 

“The Communist Party now assumed the responsibility of establishing a rigid discipline over the working class. No employer was more effective or more relentless in checking strikes among the workers, or minimizing complaints…while wages rose a little during those years, they did not compare with the rise in profits and in monopoly control of basic necessities…war production was chiefly in the hands of ten large corporations…the Communists carefully muted such information.” (153)

The war years saw amazing coordination between the Communist Party and America’s financial elite. The elite financed a sophisticated propaganda agency called theRussian Institute located on Park Ave. across 68th Street from Rockefeller’s Council on Foreign Relations. Here “famous names like Vanderbilt, Lamont, Whitney and Morgan mingled with those of Communist leaders. “(153)

At Roosevelt’s insistence, Stalin “dissolved” the Comintern in order to make the CPUSA look like an American party. The CPUSA leader Earl Browder achieved national prominence and consulted with senior Roosevelt cabinet ministers.


The joint US-Russian war effort was to be the basis of the new world order. But, inexplicably, the policy changed and Browder instantly became a non-person. Apparently, the time wasn’t right for world government. A cold war would be much more lucrative. Dodd was told that in the future, the party would often find itself opposed not only to the government but also to U.S. workers. 

“I now saw that with the best motives and a desire to serve the working people… I and thousands like me had been led to a betrayal of these very people… I had been on the side of those who sought the destruction of my own country.” (229) 

Like frightened mice, the CPUSA membership scurried to adopt the new party line. Dodd tried to quit but was told: “No one gets out of the party. You die or you are thrown out.” (197)

Eventually, Dodd was expelled and smeared as “anti-Negro, anti-Puerto Rican, anti-Semitic, anti-labor and a defender of the landlord.” (220). Sound familiar? After more than 20 years of tireless sacrifice, she was without family or friends. The party had been her family. Its “hates had become my hates.”

“This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind. The individual is made into nothing … he operates as the physical part of [a] higher group intelligence… he has no awareness of the plans the higher group intelligence has for utilizing him.” (158)


Bella Dodd was circumspect about the people behind the Communist Party.  Once, she was told to phone two multi-millionaires who lived in the Waldorf Towers if she lost contact with Moscow. Elsewhere, she refers to “a secret well-organized world power.” She is obviously afraid to be candid. She suspects that one CPUSA leader’s “suicide” was, in fact, murder. (172)

But she does drop a possible clue. She says that each of the nine floors of the party-owned headquarters at 35 E. 12thSt. was devoted to CPUSA business. The Sixth Floor held “the publication offices of the Yiddish newspaper, theFreiheit, and the “Jewish Commission.” (162) 

“What now became clear to me was the collusion of these two forces: the Communists with their timetable for world control, and certain mercenary forces in the free world bent on making profits from blood.” (229)

As “one piece of the puzzle that finally became a picture,” Dodd tells the story of the ship “Erica Reed” typical of “hundreds of other stories.” During the Spanish Civil War, Americans donated money to load the ship with medical supplies and food for Spain. The Communists diverted the ship to Russia instead. (89) 

Censorship is crucial to Communists, Dodd says. “I have often seen leaders pull books from shelves in homes and warn members to destroy them.”(223) 

Communism is essentially a deceitful system of international elite control. It was not suppressed during the McCarthy era. Rather it morphed into the New Left, Counter Culture, Civil Rights, Anti War and Woman’s Liberation Movements, and later into a plethora of elite-sponsored NGO’s, and media, Democratic and Republican party factions, Liberal, Zionist, Labor, Feminist and Gay Rights groups. Like the CPUSA itself, these groups are controlled from the top so their memberships are unaware of being used.

To the objection that some of the above-mentioned groups oppose globalization, Dodd refers to examples where the CPUSA ostensibly supported causes they wished to sabotage. (205) 


Communism was/is a plot designed to substitute a Masonic Jewish cabal for the rule of God. It is a fraud hatched by the rich to thwart the dreams of ordinary people and stunt human progress. The same cabal is behind most wars including the impending attack on Iran. 

A precursor to the new world order, Communism espouses brotherhood, peace and equality in order to deceive us. It has taken over society’s eyes, ears, mind and spirit. Much of what passes for truth in the media and schools is part of this monstrous con job. The expression “politically correct”  is an old Communist Party term. Our politicians are mostly traitors.

Feminism is Communist both in origin and spirit. It pretends to champion women but in fact neuters both sexes and destroys the basic social unit, the family. The promotion of homosexuality as a “lifestyle choice” for heterosexuals is also part of this brazen elitist fraud designed to “create new types of human beings who would conform…” 

Western Civilization is like a ship floundering in a sea of evil, yet the passengers are too duped and distracted to realize it. Bella Dodd had the courage to sound the alarm 75 years ago. It is never too late to begin to resist tyranny. 

There are no lifeboats.

 We Have DeFacto Communism

—-“The Aim of Freemasonry is the Triumph of Communism” 


First Comment from Dan Butler (1955-2018):

The American Communists (CPUSA) were just one country.   The Communists were international, so this was being done simultaneously in every country where there were Communists.  Mexico was a haven of Communists during the 1930’s;  Presidente Cárdenas harbored Trotsky in Mexico City from 1936 till 1940. The Catholic clergy had already been purged during the late 1920’s by the Freemasonic government of Presidente Plutarco Calles. 

Irregular Freemasonry had already been infiltrating the Vatican since the late 19th century.   Vatican Secretariat Cardinal Mariano Rampolla, secretly a high Mason was actually elected Pope in the Conclave of 1903.  Only the last minute veto of Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph foiled it.  Pius X (GiuseppeSarto) became Pope instead.  Though traditionalist Catholics believe Pius X was the last great opponent of Freemasonry, his first act as Pope was to abolish the veto power of the Catholic kings.   Still, his encyclical‘Pascendi Dominici Gregisi’  (On the Doctrine of the Modernists) in which he calls ‘Modernism’ the “Synthesis of all heresies”, and the 1910 ‘Oath Against Modernism’ for all clergy were powerful statements.  These however were kicked to the curb with Pope Giacomo Battista (Benedict XV) Lateran Pacts with the Kingdom of Italy and Mussolini in 1929.  This established Vatican City as a sovereign state in the Modern world.  Even more damning was the 1933 Concordat with the Third Reich, signed by Secretary of State Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli (Pope Pius XII 1939-1958).  Although the Reichskonkordat was in no way an endorsement of Nazi policies, it was a capitulation of teachings of Christ, just to preserve Church assets and comfort zone in Germany. 

The oldest document we have of a Masonic long-term business plan to infiltrate and take over the Roman Catholic Church is
“The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita”.  Alta Vendita was the name of the highest lodge of the Italian Masonic terrorist organization called the ‘Carbonari’.  Pius VII condemned the Carbonari in 1821.   The pseudonym of the author was “Piccolo Tigre,” codename for Giuseppe Mazzini.

The secret papers of the Alta Vendita Lodge that fell into the hands of Pope Gregory XVI were produced from 1820 to 1846. They were published at the request of Pope Pius IX by Jacques Crétineau-Joly in his work ‘The Roman Church and Revolution’ in 1861, Pope Pius IX guaranteed the authenticity of these documents with his Imprimatur.

The full text of the ‘Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita’ can also be found in George E. Dillon’s book, Grand Orient Freemasonry Unmasked. 

In the Encyclical Humanum Genus(1884), Leo XIII called upon Catholic leaders to “tear off the mask from Freemasonry and make plain to all what it really is.”

“The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita” is out of print and copies have become extremely expensive on Amazon since TAN Book publishers went out of business in 2011.

Over a Million Palestinians Are About to be Forced Into Egypt at Gunpoint

It must be clear that there is no room in the country for both peoples…. If the Arabs leave it, the country will become wide and spacious for us…. The only solution is a Land of Israel…without Arabs. There is no room here for compromises… Yosef Weitz (1890-1972) former director of the Jewish National Fund’s Land Settlement Department

The IDF’s recent airstrikes on civilian areas in Rafah mark the beginning of the final phase of Israel’s massive ethnic cleansing project. On Monday, Israel bombed a number of locations where Palestinian refugees were huddled in tents after fleeing Israel’s onslaught in the North. Videos of the destruction appeared on a number of Twitter-sites which showed a deeply-cratered wasteland in the middle of makeshift encampments. Not surprisingly, women and children made up the bulk of the casualties with no evidence of Hamas to be found anywhere. According to a witness at the site, body parts and carnage were strewn across the landscape. This is from an article at the World Socialist Web Site:

Israel launched a massive aerial bombardment of Rafah, the southernmost city in Gaza, on Sunday night into Monday morning, killing over 100 people. As the sun came up, the world was horrified by images of the mangled bodies of children, in a chilling demonstration of what is to come in the weeks ahead.

Over the weekend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to carry out a full-scale military onslaught against the besieged city, declaring, “Our goal … is total victory.” For the Israeli regime, “total victory” means killing as many Palestinians as possible and driving the rest from their homes. With a green light from Biden, Israel commencing Rafah massacreWorld Socialist Web Site

Israeli spokesmen and members of the western media provided the perfunctory justification for Monday’s attacks by reiterating the fiction that Israel is trying to eradicate Hamas. What is obscured by this obvious deception is the fact that the basic plan for expelling the Arab population from their native land dates back to the origins of the Jewish state. Indeed, the founder of the modern Zionist movement, Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), wrote the following:

“We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it any employment in our own country… expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly.”

Shockingly, Herzl wrote those words in 1895, 50 years before Israel declared its statehood. So, the problem was fully understood even back then. In order to establish a Jewish homeland, Jews would have to maintain a sizable majority, which means Palestinians would have to be evicted. That is the niggling issue that has bedeviled Israeli leaders from 1948-on; how to ‘disappear’ the native population. Here’s a blurb from Israel’s first prime minister David Ben-Gurion who said:

“You are no doubt aware of the [Jewish National Fund’s] activity in this respect. Now a transfer of a completely different scope will have to be carried out. In many parts of the country new settlement will not be possible without transferring the Arab fellahin.” He concluded: “Jewish power [in Palestine], which grows steadily, will also increase our possibilities to carry out this transfer on a large scale.” (1948)

This same line of reasoning has persisted through the decades although today’s Zionists tend to express themselves more brashly and with less restraint. Take, for example, popular conservative pundit Ben Shapiro who presented his views in an article titled “Transfer is Not a Dirty Word”. Here’s what he said:

If you believe that the Jewish state has a right to exist, then you must allow Israel to transfer the Palestinians and the Israeli-Arabs from Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Israel proper. It’s an ugly solution, but it is the only solution. And it is far less ugly than the prospect of bloody conflict ad infinitum….

The Jews don’t realize that expelling a hostile population is a commonly used and generally effective way of preventing violent entanglements. There are no gas chambers here. It’s not genocide; it’s transfer….

It’s time to stop being squeamish. Jews are not Nazis. Transfer is not genocide. And anything else isn’t a solution. Transfer is Not a Dirty Word, Narkive

“Squeamish”? Shapiro thinks that anyone who recognizes the appalling moral horror of driving people off their land and forcing them into refugee camps is squeamish?

This is the essence of political Zionism and it dates back to the very beginning of the Jewish state. So, when critics claim that Netanyahu has assembled the “most right-wing government in Israel’s history”, don’t believe them. Netanyahu is no better or worse than his predecessors. The only Prime Minister who veered even slightly from this ‘iron law’ of Zionism, was Yitzhak Rabin who was (predictably) assassinated by an opponent of Oslo. What does that tell you?

It tells you there was never going to be a “two-state” solution; it was a charade from the get-go. And (as Netanyahu intimated recently) Israeli leaders merely played along with the hoax in order to buy-time to prepare for the solution that is being imposed today.

Have you ever wondered why so many Israelis support Netanyahu’s murderous rampage in Gaza?

(Hint) It’s not because Israeli Jews are homicidal maniacs. No. It’s because they know what he is doing. They’re not taken-in by the “Hamas” diversion, that is merely propaganda pablum for the West. They know that Netanyahu is implementing a plan to seize all the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. And, in doing so, he is achieving the territorial ambitions of his Zionist ancestors. So, even though the majority of Israelis despise Netanyahu and think he should be prosecuted for corruption, they are willing to look the other way while he does their bidding.

What onlookers need to realize is that the current strategy is not new at all, in fact, it has a 75 year-long pedigree that aligns with the demographic objectives of the Zionist leadership.

None of this of course has anything to do with Hamas which is merely the pretext for the eradication of the indigenous people. What we are seeing is the actualization of the Zionist dream, the modern version of Plan Dalet, the original roadmap for ethnic cleaning that was drawn up in 1948.

So, what is Plan Dalet?

Plan Dalet was the blueprint used by the ..Israeli army… to expel Palestinians from their homeland during Israel’s establishment in 1948. As…Israeli historian Benny Morris noted in his landmark book on the events of 1948, Plan Dalet was “a strategic-ideological anchor and basis for expulsions by front, district, brigade and battalion commanders”… Today, this act of mass expulsion would be called ethnic cleansing.

Officially adopted on March 10, 1948, Plan Dalet specified which Palestinian cities and towns would be targeted and gave instructions for how to drive out their inhabitants and destroy their communities. It called for:

“Destruction of villages… especially those population centers which are difficult to control continuously…  the population must be expelled outside the borders of the state.”

Three quarters of all Palestinians, about 750,000 people, were forced from their homes and made refugees during Israel’s establishment. Their homes, land, and other belongings were systematically destroyed or taken over by Israelis, while they were denied the right to return or any sort of compensation. More than 400 Palestinian towns and villages, including vibrant urban centers, were destroyed or repopulated with Jewish Israelis.” Plan Dalet & The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, IMEU

So, what have we seen over the last four months?

We’ve seen the terrorizing of an entire population that has experienced relentless bombing, destruction of vital infrastructure, a full blockade of food, water and medical supplies, and a mass exodus to the southernmost city in Gaza at gunpoint.

Is this not Plan Dalet?

It is. It’s a modern version of the original plan. That is why the IDF is bombing tent cities full of unarmed civilians who pose no threat to Israeli security. It’s not to fight Hamas but to terrorize the population into fleeing the city. That’s the goal. Israel knows that if they bomb the refugees, they will storm the border, breach the wall, and stream into Egypt en masse. That’s the plan in a nutshell.

And the plan appears to be succeeding. In fact, Netanyahu might be just days-away from finishing the work that was begun by Ben-Gurion. He has already started to increase the airstrikes on Rafah while a full-blown ground assault could be launched at any time. As the humanitarian crisis intensifies, the desperation and fear will grow eventually triggering a massive stampede for the Egyptian border. Once the Palestinians leave Gaza, they will fall under the guardianship of representatives of the international community who will transfer them to nations around the world. This is how Netanyahu intends to seize the land he will incorporate into a Greater Israel, by driving unarmed civilians out of their homes and into the desert.

The expulsion of the Palestinians shows that –behind the moral pontificating about human rights and ‘the rule of law’– the United States and Israel are capable of the most barbarous cruelty imaginable. It is truly shocking that the two nations can execute a filthy plan like this in broad daylight while the rest of the world sits on their hands.

We should all feel ashamed of ourselves.
