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.

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.
