Skip to comments.Has Obama adopted the Cloward-Piven Stategy as National Policy?
Posted on 02/03/2010 9:03:28 PM PST by Art in Idaho
The tsunami of spending this last year is only going to get worse. Obama recently announced a proposed budget request of $3.8 Trillion that was sent to Congress for the fiscal year that begins on October first. His budget forecasts a deficit of roughly $1.6 trillion. Obama says he plans to slash it in half by 2014 through a combination of tax increases on wealthy Americans, and cuts in domestic programs.
There was a 700% increase in spending in Obama's first year. In the next ten years, Obama will be spending 44 times the previous 10 years:
Who knows what next years budget will bring, and the year after. This looks like an exponential pattern to me.
Is all of this the culmination of the liberals dream of destroying our great America? A progressive plan to destroy the greatest country on earth, the bastion of Western Civilization, the cradle of capitalistic free enterprise and change it to a socialist/communist country?
Cloward and Piven outlined their theories in the 60s. One of my favorite quotes from them: "And as Cloward and Piven made clear, the true purpose is not even to help those groups, (welfare, voting, housing and immigration) but rather to duplicitously enlist them as part of an offensive to collapse our society from within!" Great . .
"The 'Cloward-Piven Strategy' seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse." Sound familiar? . .
Alinsky: "The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one."
. . and the topper: "To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers helped by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation's wealth." Gee, I thought he was just a community organizer. . . uh, er, No, now hes the Organizer POTUS!
From Dick Morris: Obama is being disingenuous when he says that the budget deficit he faced when I walked in the door of the White House was $1.3 trillion. He went on to say that he only increased it to $1.4 trillion in 2009 and was raising it to $1.6 trillion in 2010. Congressman Joe Wilson might have said you lie, but well settle for you distort.
Here are the facts:
In 2008, Bush ran a deficit of $485 billion. By the time the fiscal year started on October 1, 2008, it had gone up by another $100 billion due to increased recession-related spending and depressed revenues. So it was about $600 billion at the start of the fiscal crisis. That was the real Bush deficit.
But when the fiscal crisis hit, Bush had to pass TARP in the final months of his presidency which cost $700 billion. Under the federal budget rules, a loan and a grant are treated the same. So the $700 billion pushed the deficit officially up to $1.3 trillion. But not really. The $700 billion was a short term loan. $500 billion of it has already been repaid.
So what was the real deficit Obama inherited? The $600 billion deficit Bush was running plus the $200 billion of TARP money that probably wont be repaid (mainly AIG and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac). That totals $800 billion. That was the real deficit Obama inherited.
It seems to me Obama is following the Cloward-Piven strategy to the T, right out of their writings. Now their mantra is to spend our way out of this mess.
You can get up to speed on the Cloward Piven stategy Here Here Here Here and Here
Read these and tell me what you think. Is Obama following the Cloward-Piven rule book and is this now official White House National Policy? It sure sounds like it to me. Oh course, he will deny it, but as Krauthammer says, Its not what he says, its what he does.
Yes, he has.
He figures he’ll destroy America in one term and that the rest of the world will love him so much for this that they’ll put him on the global throne.
It was George Soros.
Obama is just doing what Soros tells him to do.
Well, here’s some finally cheery news:
Poll Round-up: No Safe Democrat Governors in Any Major State.
4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Wow, so all the back door reparations; ACORN, the no income-no problem mortgages, the make work Federal Jobs, the overwhelmed welfare system - they're all illegal? Looks like a serious issue to look into, maybe eventually a SCOTUS Case!
Regardless of any of that, if McCain opposed the bailouts in September-October of 2008, he’d be the president and we’d be recovering. That Obama capitalized on the economic collapse should not surprise us. That the GOP read from Keynes’ manual — and probably continues to do so — is a good reason not to trust anyone in the punditry class or in the political class.
Amen to that. No incumbents - November 2, 2010!
“Is Obama following the Cloward-Piven rule book?
Yes, and he’s been following the Cloward-Piven rule book since he was recruited by Marxist professors and Pakistani illegal aliens at Occidental College in California to move to NYC to complete his undergraduate degree in poli sci at Columbia University.
Obamas intellectual political mentor at Occidental College in LA from 1979-1981 was Marxist Professor Roger Boesche. Obamas guru and controller while at Columbia University in NYC from 1981-1983 was Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Securty Advisor under Pres. Carter. Brzezinski is currently Pres. Obamas foreign policy advisor.
In the summer of 1981, before transferring to Columbia Unversty in NYC, Obama traveled to Pakistan on the premise of visiting the families of his Pakastani friends. On this trip, Obama also visited India, Indonesia (to visit his mother), and Kenya (to visit his uncle, brothers, and grandmother). Interestingly, in the summer of 1981 the U.S. State Dept. was not allowing AMERICAN citizens to travel to Pakistan. This didn’t affect Obama because as a citizen of Indonesia he was able to use his Indonesian passport.
At Columbia: Both Obama and 1960s Weathermen bomber Ayers admit to attending anti-American rallies that took place at Columbia in the early 1980s. Ayers was studying for his M.Ed in Early Childhood Education at Bank Street College down the street from Columbia University in NYC at the same time Obama was completing his B.A. in Political Science at Columbia University.
In Dreams From My Father, Obama reveals that while at Columbia he went to socialist conferences in Brooklyn.
Then, after transferring to Columbia University two years later, he [Obama] found that political discussions, the kind that at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, took on the flavor of the socialist conferences he sometimes attended at New Yorks [Columbias] Coopers Union.
In 1984, Obama worked for three months as a community organizer for the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), a Ralph Nader offshoot trying to mobilize minority students at City College of New York, a school famous for hatching four famous Marxist professors (Irving Kristol, Nathan Glazer, Daniel Bell and Irving Howe) who owned or published ultra-leftist magazines like The New Leader, Commentary, Dissent, and The Public Interest.
1985 Obama is a consultant and instructor for the Gamaliel Foundation in Chicago, an organizing institute working throughout the Midwest.
In 1985, Gerald (Jerry) Kellman at Calumet Community Religious Conference in Chicago receives a grant from Bill Ayers at the Woods Fund, a Chicago foundation that gives grants for community organizing, to hire a new community organizer for the organization he heads called the Developing Communities Project (DCP). Later, Ayers and Obama are both on the board of the Woods Fund.
1985-1988 Obama is hired by Gerald Kellman (due to a grant from Ayers at the Woods Foundation) to be the director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), a leftist Alinskyite community organizing subsidiary of the Gamaliel Foundation in Chicago which has Marxist Professor and former ACLU Director John L. McKnight as board director.
Professor Mckight mentored Obama while he was at DCP in the the agitation tactics of Alinsky, who wrote the organizing manual, Rules for Radicals, which he dedicated to mankinds very first radical, Lucifer. Under McKnight, Obama says he got the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School. (remark in 2007 while campaigning in Iowa). My views are not so much more refined than they were when I labored in obscurity as a community organizer, Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography.
Fall of 1987 Bill Ayers links back up with Obama when they are working the same side of the 1987 Teachers Union Strike and both attend a Tom Ayers Chicago United lunch meeting in a Chicago skyscraper.
1987 Bill Ayers solicits Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour (a.k.a. Donald Warden) to raise money for Obamas Harvard Law School education. al-Mansour is an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and his cohort, Bobby Seale. At the time al-Mansour associate Percy Sutton was raising money for Obamas education, al-Mansour was the top financial advisor to mega-billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of the Saudi royal family.
1988 The ABCs Coalition is formed and is coordinated by Bill Ayers. Tom Ayers is a key member of ABC. Another member of ABCs was Obamas Developing Communities Project.
1988 Obama joins racist, America hating Rev. Jeremiah Wrights Trinity Church of Christ in Chicago and one Sunday was brought to tears by Rev. Wrights Audacity of Hope sermon. Wright admittedly became his mentor and spiritual advisor for the next 20 years.
1988 Obama writes an essay entitled, Why Organize? Problems and Promise in the Inner City. It is published in the August/ September 1988 edition of Illinois Issues which was published by Sangamon State University [now the University of Illinois at Springfield]. In ths essay Obama lays out his plan to politically organize liberationist black churches. He saw the black church as a slumbering giant in cities like Chicago.
1988-1991 Obama goes to Harvard Law School. Whenever Obamas in Chicago to visit Michelle, he takes advanced training at the Industrial Areas Foundation in Chicago, a group founded by Alinsky.
1989 Tom Ayers (father to Bill Ayers) gets Obama a summer intern position at the law firm of Sidley & Austin LLP where he is introduced to Michelle Robinson by Ayers wife and fellow Weathermen bomber, Bernardine Dohrn, who Tom Ayers also got a job there for.
1991 Obama graduates from Harvard, is named as head of the Harvard Review and takes Michelle Robinson home to Kenya to meet his family.
1992 Obama heads Project Vote-Illinois, a subsidiary of ACORN. Afterward, head of ACORN-Chicago, Madeleine Talbot, askes for Obama to train all her lead community organizers in his Alinsky style agitation tactics.
and the rest ....is HISTORY...............
Yes, I DEFINITELY think that U.S. President Obama has adopted the Cloward-Piven Strategy as the official White House policy...
Yep, yep, That IS what I believe.
More importantly, get your things in order.
The ballot box will matter less and less.
Yep, yep, That IS what I believe.
Wow, thanks BIOCHEMKY for all those historical details. Didn't know a lot of them. Every American needs to know the details you outlined and the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Pass this on folks!
It was George Soros.
Obama is just doing what Soros tells him to do."
Do you think it possible that Obama is an unwitting tool to the ambitions of Soros?
Obama could never have ascended to his current position if Soros had not decided several years ago to make it happen. That's a fact. But it is possible that Obama is so narcissistic and self-absorbed that he's the perfect rube for a plot that he's unaware of while thinking it's all about him?
I once knew a man that was CEO of a thriving chain of hair salons. He was very well paid and believed he was just incredibly lucky to find himself running such a successful company-- driving Porsches and buying thoroughbred race horses. Then one day the CFO disappeared with the company's money. It turned out he'd been keeping two sets of books, and the CEO was just a pawn in a scheme years in the making. Because he thought he was in charge, with all the perks of a successful business, he was flabbergasted when it all dissolved literally over night, and had to spend much of his accumulated assets on lawyers to prove he wasn't part of the scheme.
I'm wondering if our "brilliant" but completely inexperienced President wasn't spotted as the perfect front-man by the wily George Soros, whose admitted culmination to his life work is to see the destruction of the United States.
Obama is making clear that he certainly has the ego to make himself susceptible to believing he is more than he could ever possibly be, as well as a penchant for living in a distorted reality, which would increase the ease of getting him believing the hype of the adoring media--when actually he's more like Chauncey the Gardener.
I've often said that if someone wrote a novel even 5 years ago about what is currently going on in the United States it would have been rejected by every publisher as too far fetched. When you think about it, adding this twist to the story actually makes it more believable.
Yes, I read somewhere that Soros invited Obama early on for an "interview", got his blessing and the rest is History! How much he pulls his chain is anyone's guess. . .
This time-line should be forwarded to Bill O’Reilly, who likes to dismiss Obama’s relationship with Ayers precisely as Obama himself does.
Look at it from the other direction and try to name one thing he has done that is beneficial to the economy. I can’t think of anything maybe someone else can.
Thanks for this great chronological history of the socialist-fascist-commmie bastard ururper 0bozo, who unbelieveably has become pres____ent of the U.S. through orchestrated fraud & deceit over his entire life. This bastard has GOT to be the anti-Christ. I believe he will be revealed as the anti-Christ following the rapture of all believers.
