War On America…Who are Cloward and Piven?

The Cloward-Piven strategy.

from Jeannie DeAngelis at the American Thinker…Full post here.

“The president’s ability to exploit crises is reminiscent of the controversial teachings of Columbia University political scientists, Frances Fox Cloward and Richard Andrew Piven. Inspired by the Obama mentor — radical community organizer Saul Alinsky — these two sixties social revolutionaries taught that upheaval is something that should “never be wasted” and that political change can be fostered through “…orchestrated crisis.” Two skills Barack Obama proficiently exercises every chance he gets.

Cloward-Piven instructed activists that if a crisis did not exist, promote or manufacture one by exaggerating a benign or unthreatening predicament. In doing so, contrived commotion would serve as a tool to convince the masses of their urgent need for rescue. In order to achieve the ultimate goal, students were encouraged to stress the social system to the breaking point, which would quash capitalism and institute socialism through a massive infusion of government intervention.

Cloward-Piven repeatedly cited Alinsky’s, Rules for Radicals, in all their work. Marxism advocates were taught by Cloward-Piven to, “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” Never failing to remind their apprentices that, “…when pressed…human agencies inevitably fall short…the systems failure to “live up” to its rule book can then is used to discredit it altogether.” The definitive goal: “… replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one.”

From Jim Simpson at InvesigatingObama.com…
“Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision. Their influence has spread so far and so wide that despite their blatant culpability in the current financial crisis, they are able to manipulate Capital Hill politicians to cut them into $140 billion of the bailout pie!”
There is no mistake…radical leftists have declared war on America.  It is becoming increasingly apparent to me that the radicals from the 60’s, who at the time were out in the open, have simply gone underground.  For the past 40+ years to now, they have conspired and grown a massive movement using the freedoms of our country to mount an aggressive attack against the foundations, principles and free markets of the U.S. Barack Obama has been extensively immersed in this movement.  All one has to do is connect the dots…the people, the  organizations, and their purposes.
If you care about our country and you haven’t read this post before, run, don’t walk right over to this site at InvestigatingObama.com. Article here. This is the most complete and precise expose I have read of the man currently occupying the White House. This article is thorough and with references.  Plan to spend a lot of time there and read all of the links and references.

  1. I decided to read the book by Alinsky. There is no doubt that he has read it and is employing the tatics. People have been so blinded by his popularity, they refuse to see the writing on the wall. We need to scream as loud as we can to stop this.

  2. Great post, Kathy! I plan to spend much of the next few days reading this, I am familiar with it, but not well versed in it. Now I just need to figure out how I can explain all this to my lib loved ones, without estranging them. 🙂

  3. Hi Conservative Girl, you are absolutely right. People keep saying all the time how “intelligent” he is and how good a speaker he is…like that’s all that is important. It’s like a spell or something they are in.

    Thanks Pup, for reading. The article by Jim Simpson is SO well worth reading…everything is there, absolutely everything you would ever need to know about O. Keep praying for your lib loved ones, and they will come around…

    It is now so obvious to me that this whole Cloward-Piven thing, along with ACORN, are the perpetrators (along with complicit government agents) of this whole housing collapse that happened last year. This was part of their strategy, the strategy to cause government systems to collapse and cause chaos. What did the government think would happen when they passed laws insisting banks give loans to people who could not pay? Now, it looks like the government intends to subsidize every single one of them so they can stay in the house they can’t afford.
    Someone the other day said “I long for the days when an acorn was just a nut and not some group of nuts.” To that I say a big Amen!

  4. I hear rumors of the desire to repeal the 22nd Amendment…the one allowing the presidency only 2 terms. I am highly suspicious that we are on the way to no more elections, much like Venezuela. You watch to see what they try to do. I know it seems hard to believe, but I’m not making that up. You should read what Russia is saying about Obama and the U.S….they can’t believe it either and are making fun of us. The Brits too are seeing through the whole thing…we conservatives are not, I repeat, NOT, crazy!!!

    Although, speaking of the Brits, I was reading a post this morning about a guy who kept getting his tools robbed and his vegetable garden messed up by thieves. He put a fence up with barbed wire on it…and the govt. says he must take it down in case the thief gets hurt and sues!!! Can you believe it…the inmates really are running the asylum…

  5. One more thing…don’t forget to read in Simpson’s article about what ACORN did in New York city, swelling the welfare rolls until the government went broke…Rudy G. came in and change things around for New York City.
