Has Obama adopted the Cloward-Piven Stategy as National Policy?
February 2, 2010 | Art in Idaho

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 year’s 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 60’s. 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 he’s 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 we’ll 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 won’t 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, “It’s not what he says, it’s what he does.”

It just keeps going over in my mind: "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." . . . From community organizer to President. . .

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.

He believes he can bankrupt the country and get away with blaming it on "the previous administration", then claim increasing government regulation of everything is the only solution.

Evil poser.

Creditors may wish to evalulate this section of the 14th Amendment:

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.

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.

“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.

Obama’s intellectual political mentor at Occidental College in LA from 1979-1981 was Marxist Professor Roger Boesche. Obama’s “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. Obama’s 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 York’s [Columbia’s] 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 mankind’s “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 Teacher’s 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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s Developing Communities Project.
1988 Obama joins racist, America hating Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity Church of Christ in Chicago and one Sunday was brought to tears by Rev. Wright’s “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 Obama’s 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.

"No.

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.

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.

“This time-line should be forwarded to Bill O’Reilly, who likes to dismiss Obama’s relationship with Ayers precisely as Obama himself does.”

O’Reilly was forwarded a copy when I finished putting the entire timeline together originally (this is an excerpt) which was back in Sept./Oct. 2008.

So...what does THAT tell you?

That tells you that Bill knows ALL of this information. I figure Bill has to be a little careful so he and FOX News can stay on the air.

O’Reilly did do something “Bold and Fresh” this evening. When it came to the segment at the end of the show when Bill reads email from fans, he read one (text appeared on the screen) in which the fan said that the reason Obama’s agenda is so screwed up is because he [Obama] is putting the pieces of his New World Order into place.

Bill did not pooh pooh this email at all...which, to anyone who watches him regularly he would have normally done. So, I took that to be a signal Bill agrees with the opinion that was expressed in that email.

George Soros is a Hungarian Jew, and is a deranged hardcore leftist & socialist & hater of both America & Israel. Besides the destruction of the U.S. his other great desire is to see the nation of Israel destroyed and driven into the sea by the muzzlims.

I am very curious....why has Mossad never taken out this committed enemy of Israel who wants more than anything to see Israel destroyed? If Mossad can hunt down & kill every Palestian terrorist from Munich 1972......

Interestingly, in the summer of 1981 the U.S. State Dept. was not allowing AMERICAN citizens to travel to Pakistan.

That statement isn't true. It has been debunked many times on FR. There was a Travel Advisory which does not prevent anyone from traveling to the country under the advisory.

Then, if they're still listening, I tell them about the history of the CRA, and if they're stil lwith me after that, I tell them about Cloward-Piven.

I don't know...I guess I realize that much of Israel political establishment is rabidly leftist & secular humanist, and so maybe they are on Soros's payroll and Mossad is neutered as well when it comes to taking out that commie bastard Israel hater Soros.

For the 78% of liberal dumb ass Jews in this country who voted for 0bozo and pretty much vote 80% for rat bastard demoRATs down the line, I can understand these traitors being on the take from Soros.

As an aside, do you or anyone on FReep know why the Jews in America vote so heavily democratic. I'm thinking they are Thanking God they're in the USA, they're family oriented, business oriented, pro-2nd Amendment, (at least the ones I know), so why do they vote for less freedom, higher taxes, more government rules and regulations, gun control, higher capital gains, death tax, socialized medicine and potentially a repeat of Fascism? I don't get it. . I'm serious, I've never really discussed it with the Jewish people I know. Someone enlighten me please. Thank You ahead of time.

Cloward and Piven’s final victory came on May 20, 1993, when President Clinton signed the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 – commonly called the “Motor-Voter Act.” It ordered every state to provide resources enabling people to register to vote at state agencies, at the same time they applied for drivers’ licenses, welfare, Medicaid and disability benefits.

When President Clinton signed the bill, Cloward and Piven stood behind him, in tacit acknowledgment of their role in formulating the new law. Their work was now done. On June 2000, they dissolved Human SERVE, confident that the juggernaut they had set in motion could no longer be stopped.

Dennis Prager covered this:
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=30592

I’ll answer it too. Because of mid twentieth anti-Jewish policies in Country Clubs. Just as post-WW II Jews started moving to suburbia and became upwardly mobile the WASPy Country Clubs locked them out. Otherwise they would have become Republicans, just like all the other cultural groups making the great post WW II exodus to the suburbs.

The political opinion leaders are the very ones who most wanted to integrate into the ‘country club’ lifestyle. They really hated the rejection.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) was established in 1991 by five members of the United States House of Representatives: Representatives Ron Dellums (D-CA), Lane Evans (D-IL), Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Then-Representative Bernie Sanders was the convener and first. The founding members were concerned about the economic hardship imposed by the deepening recession, the growing inequality brought about by the timidity of the Democratic Party response at the time.

Additional House representatives joined soon, including Major Owens (D-NY), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), David Bonior (D-MI), Bob Filner (D-CA), Barney Frank (D-MA), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Jim McDermott (D-WA), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Patsy Mink (D-HI), George Miller (D-CA), Pete Stark (D-CA), John Olver (D-MA), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

It’s surreal, card carrying MARXISTS stealing our money with impunity, proudly unchallenged and in broad daylight no less.

Some heads are gonna roll.

The Kenyan marxist crypto-muslim and his comrades in Congress must be destroyed, along with the morons that vote for them.

Never forget that these RED SONS OF BITCHES are only in power because 50% of our fellow “citizens” vote for them.

The Founders were adamant about not granting the franchise to morons, women, those under 21, and non tax payers.

All of those groups have now been enfranchised via Constitutional amendment, and are the reason why MARXISTS are in control of the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

THROWING THE MARXISTS OUT WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE DEMOCRAT VOTER ISSUE DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM

The political opinion leaders are the very ones who most wanted to integrate into the ‘country club’ lifestyle. They really hated the rejection.

Yes, but that was back then. . They want the things I mentioned? For their kids? Why?

Thanks for the link from Prager. Interesting. That helps, but if I was a Jewish guy with a small business, I sure as hell wouldn't be voting Democratic these days. .

Cloward and Piven’s final victory came on May 20, 1993, when President Clinton signed the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 – commonly called the “Motor-Voter Act.” . When President Clinton signed the bill, Cloward and Piven stood behind him, in tacit acknowledgment of their role in formulating the new law.

I remember motor-voter but OMG I didn't know Cloward and Piven were standing behind him.

You know, I've been thinking, the whole Tea Party thing, Sarah, the Patriot sites, the recent political victories - I think this is all coming to a head because we've been aware of the gradual change in the culture, the gradual shift left in D.C., the left shift of the MSM, the schools, the damn music, the agenda and change in TV - the whole damn thing has been boiling and simmering for decades actually - conservatives were busy working and raising their families - I think Obama and his agenda was the tipping point. We've had enough and we're taking our Country back. . I hope it's not too late.

I hope it's not too late.

A populace that likes bright shiny objects, that swings wildly between left and right but the damage inflicted when the nation lurches left is never repaired, an electorate that gave the maniac algore the popular vote in 2000, elected Bill Clinton twice, and now puts a communist crypto-muslim in the White House is a populace and nation that has only darkness and despair on the horizon.

It is too late, but lets hope that in the new Republic that rises from this ones ashes, only taxpayers and veterans are entrusted to have a say on who may govern.

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.

I can't think of anything either. I don't think he's capable as his answer is spend our way out of any woes - his whole philosophy is anti-business, anti-economic recovery at the core.

So basically the Progressive Caucus and the Black Caucus - let's cut to the chase here - are all closet communists. Am I missing something here? Am I wrong?

What would McCarthy say about the Progressive Caucus and the Black Caucus? I bet he would have a fit.

Vote em' all out November 2, 2010!

"You are seeing today an all out attempt to marshal the forces of the opposition, using not merely the communists, or their fellow travelers-the deluded liberals, the eggheads, and some of my good friends in both the Democratic and Republican Parties who can become heros over night in the eyes of the left-wing press if they will just join with the jackal pack"

In my mind, there are so many changes that need to be made - again all the damage they've done over decades - a lot of stuff supressed by the media - Did any of you see a headline in your local paper that said, READ ALL ABOUT IT, CLOWARD and PIVEN Stand behind Clinton as he signs Motor Voter!? No, you didn't. I sure didn't know until today. So back to my original thought, so many changes need to be made, how can it really happen without the R word, yes, I said it, Revolution? Especially when you see the budget graph above and Know Obama's agenda with the "big 5" coming: gun control, amnesty (more dems), cap and tax, socialized medicine, card check - not to mention much higher taxes and more government rules and regulations. . . I really don't want it to come to that, but when you think of all the radical changes that are needed IF the country is going to survive. . thinking of our kids and grandkids. . Man, I don't know. . What's the best course of action? Voting almost sounds wimpy in some respects and will be more of the same. . . Pacing and MAD as hell. .
