Poe: "They are leftists, dedicated to overthrowing our Constitutional system," and "they will go to any length to conceal their radicalism from the public."

Meet the Real Obama and Cult of Alinsky " The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV)
It is becoming readily apparent that the "change" being proposed vaguely by Sen. Barack Obama is nothing new. It is simply the old Marxism and socialism with a new twenty-first century multicultural face and a New Age twist created by Sixties radical Saul Alinsky and his fellow travelers that is effectively deceiving millions of dumbed-down and brainwashed young adults. Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York was being grilled on one of the Sunday morning television programs regarding the differences between Senators Obama and McCain. Giuliani insisted the Obama tax plan was motivated by his intentions to "redistribute wealth." On more than one occasion he mentioned the name of Sol Alinsky. That name jogged my memory. Long term readers of The Times Examiner will recall many articles regarding the deceptive and unethical "Delphi Technique" and the specialized application of the technique applied specifically to teachers called the " Alinsky Method."
In her 1991book Educating for the New World Order, Beverly K. Eakman describes the Delphi technique and Alinsky method in detail. The technique is used in situations where the "community organizer, change agent, advocate, agitator or facilitator" desiring to achieve change uses proven psychological techniques and deception to manipulate groups of people to agree to something they currently oppose. The technique works and the targets rarely, if ever, know they are being manipulated. If they suspect it, they don't know how, unless they are aware of the technique and how the organizer and facilitator uses it to manipulate unsuspecting individuals and groups. It has been used effectively on parents in the School District of Greenville County in the past with facilitators trained by a change agent from California. The technique is currently being used quietly by those preparing to implement UN Agenda 21 disguised as a long- term plan for Greenville County created by local citizens. The socialist and communist radicals of the 60s have had four decades to test their theories, infiltrate the American institutions of learning, media, religion, business and government and select the charismatic leaders they believe have the skills to deceive the voters of America and seize power without shedding their blood.
The technique used is called the "Alinsky Method," advocated, taught and documented by Saul Alinsky, author of the 1971 book called Rules for Radicals. In his book, Alinsky was critical of some Sixties radical leftists for scaring away potential converts in conservative communities. He taught that true revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism by creating open insurrection. Alinski taught his followers to "cut their hair, put on a suit and tie and infiltrate the system from within."
The David Horowitz and Richard Poe book, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, traced the rise of Alinsky's political influence since the 1930s. They write that Alinsky excelled at wooing wealthy financiers to provide start-up funds for his Industrial Areas Foundation, a school for radical community organizers.
There is a mountain of evidence that George Soros, Hillary Clinton and the mother and maternal grandparents of Barack Obama were students of the Alinsky method of community organizing.
Richard Poe writes in The Turrish Weekly that Obama, who never met Alinsky in person, was "trained by Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation," and that " Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method." Poe further states that Obama "In 1985 began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project. Later, he worked with Acorn and its offshoot Project Vote, both creations of the Alinsky network."
FOX News has reported that Acorn has been caught this summer involved in massive voter registration law violations in several states.
As early as 1945, Alinsky was able to influence government officials. Agnes Meyer, wife of the publisher of the Washington Post wrote a six-part series on Alinsky titled, The Orderly Revolution. It made Alinsky famous. President Truman reportedly ordered 100 reprints of the articles. Soon Alinsky was able to get his hands into the federal treasury.
During the turbulent anti-war Sixties Alinsky wielded enormous power behind the scenes. When President Johnson launched his War on Poverty in 1964, Alinsky followers infiltrated the program, steering federal money into Alinsky projects.
Alinsky wrote that he had an "understanding" with Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who supported Alinsky's Jackson style "shakedown" of Eastman Kodak in 1966.
Alinsky recruited a young high school student named Hillary Rodham. They met through a radical church group. Hillary wrote an analysis of "Alinsky Methods" for her thesis at Wellsley College, where, according to Richard Poe, "every professor was a Marxist at that time."
After graduating from Yale Law School in 1974, Hillary received a prestigious appointment to the House Judiciary Committee's Watergate investigation team on the recommendation of Marian Wright Edelman and her husband. Edelman happens to be a follower of Alinsky, having served on the Board of Trustees of Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation. Edelman has been termed by some as Hillary's "ideological soul mate." Hillary was friends with Alinsky until his death in 1972.
" Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite, trained by Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation," Poe writes, although Obama never met Alinsky personally. The Alinsky method of organizing is characterized by deception and camouflage. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama did not attend church.
His lack of church involvement negatively impacted his effectiveness. He found it necessary to become an instant churchgoer in order to infiltrate churches.
Poe states that the fact that both Senators Clinton and Obama share an Alinskyite background tells us two things: "They are leftists, dedicated to overthrowing our Constitutional system," and "They will go to any length to conceal their radicalism from the public." That is the Alinsky Method.
Agenda 21, adopted in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, at the U.N. Conference on Environment and development, has had profound influence on public policy. The objective of this document is to integrate environmental protection, economic development, and social equity - under the management of global authorities.

How both parties sold America down the river
After wading through all the publications and websites representing both support and opposition for the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-approved by the U.S. Congress July 2005), it's astonishing to realize how very few of them bother to explain the legal foundation for the agreement. CAFTA, like most international trade agreements, is based entirely in the supremacy of communitarian law.
This isn't Bush and Clinton quietly slipping in communitarian programs like Local Agenda 21 that bury communitarian laws deep inside hefty grants and incentives. The U.S. Congress has officially denounced their own Constitution as Supreme Law. When the United States Congress approved CAFTA they endorsed a regional trade agreement that places U.S. Constitutional Law below Communitarian Law. While communitarian law is without a doubt the most important legal topic in the world, American experts on both "sides" of the free trade arguments completely ignore it. Consequently, it's the rare American who has any concept of how prevalent or powerful this new system of justice is. Continued here.
Niki Raapana was trained in government document research at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Raised by a career Army NCO, she traveled the U.S. most of her life. Her dad taught her it is every American's job to defend the rights of people who are unable to defend themselves.
After her landlord complained that the city was out to steal his land, Niki agreed to study Seattle's development plans for him in March 1999. In September 1999 she found out the city planned to do a lot more than steal Hugh's land. She identified the Communitarian Network's connection to the plans in March 2000.
Niki filed many public disclosure requests for Hugh Sisley and in the fall of 2001 the City of Seattle ceased actions against his properties based on Niki's research. By 2002 she had provided 2500 documents for Dawson et. al. v. The City of Seattle et. al, a 4th Amendment lawsuit currently under consideration before the Ninth District Court of Appeals.
Niki co-founded the Anti-Communitarian League with her (then) teenage daughter Nordica, in April, 2001.
Do you know of any good resources that recommend strategies for countering the Delphi Method?
I wonder if David Horowitz and Richard Poe will now pen a book on Leon Trotsky--the chief butcher of the Bolshevik Revolution--and the rise of his political influence on the neo-conservative movement?
The RAND corp. (CFR front group) developed the *Delphi* technique (psycho-propoganda) for use during the Cold War. Alinsky tweeked this methode for use in community organizing.
RAND RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
Without a doubt, RAND is THE think tank most beholden to Tavistock Institute and certainly the RIIA’s most prestigious vehicle for control of United States policies at every level. Specific RAND policies that became operative include our ICBM program, prime analyses for U.S. foreign policy making, instigator of space programs, U.S. nuclear policies, corporate analyses, hundreds of projects for the military, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in relation to the use of mind altering drugs like peyote, LSD (the covert MK-ULTRA operation which lasted for 20 years).
What amazes me most about Alinsky and his followers is how open they are in their writings about their methods and goals.
They don’t want to help poor people, which could best be achieved by helping them stop being poor.
They want to keep them poor so they can be organized as a permanent political force. Poor people are just a convenient means to use towards the end of bringing the organizers to power. Democracy is not a goal, only an interim stage.
They don’t even attempt to hide any of this. They apparently can’t see that anyone might view using human beings in this cynical way as evil.
Well, it's obvious they were leftists, but I haven't seen anything that connects them -- especially the grandparents -- to Alinksy methods, whereas the Hillary, Soros and Obama connections are well documented.
That would be an interesting book. I’ve enjoyed Horowitz since I read Radical Son, which really sheds some light on the left.
“Strategies for countering the Delphi Method”?Knowledge is the key.Pick up a copy of “Rules For Radicals”.It’s a quick read-Alinsky lays it all out.Google-”Sol Alinsky”+Alinsky Method.If you have time,search terms like “social engineering” and “The Frankfurt School”aka”The Frankfurt School of Behavioralism”.Front Pagemag.com(DHorowitz)has lots of pertinent info and articles.Later:)
Correction-frontpagemagazine.com-coffee hasn’t kicked in yet:)
And no, for those who quibble, Godwin's law is not in effect here. My comparison is valid.
My son had experience with this in his locale. They countered by informing everyone prior to the meeting. They seeded their adherents around the room with no obvious communication between them. Everyone was briefed on the facts in the case and the technique. They remained polite. The major tactic they used was for people to raise their hands at various points and comment on the process. Ex: “You didn't answer that person's question.” Then rephrase the question. I think most of the methods are in the article “Have You Been Delphied”.(it has been a while since I read it).
My son's community was successful. This instance was in South Dakota where radicals wanted to add a directional sign at a highway interchange (public funds) to direct people to a deaf-only community where everyone would be required to sign. I believe the entire project for the Balkanized community also failed. I don't recall the exact location, but I believe it was between Bridgewater and Conestoga. My son signs and has worked as a sign interpreter and IIRC, he had been one of the people originally contacted by the radicals who mistakenly thought he would be in favor of their plan.
