The Obama Agenda: The Fall of America Through Orchestrated Crisis
David Horowitz's NewsRealBlog ^ | June 13, 2010 | Liz Blaine

Posted on 06/13/2010 1:26:12 PM PDT by callisto

Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats are deliberately and unapologetically engaging in economic sabotage; simultaneously targeting numerous sectors of the American economy using orchestrated systemic crisis in an effort to overwhelm the U.S. economy and effect the destruction of capitalism and America from within. By using the Cloward-Piven Strategy to promote economic and social change through the exploitation of misfortune, national crisis and disorganization the Left is advancing government as the tool for reorganization. The tactics and intended consequences of the Obama administration include:

First promoted in 1966 by Marxist Columbia University professors Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the destruction of capitalism in America by expanding the welfare system to the point of collapsing the economy and implementing socialism by nationalizing large sectors of private industry. In their Nation article, The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty, Cloward and Piven explicitly defined the kind of “crisis” they sought to create:
By crisis, we mean a publicly visible disruption in some institutional sphere. Crisis can occur spontaneously (e.g., riots) or as the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which....

Spot on. Missing a few details, because I guess they are not yet known. O is going to successfully destroy America from the inside. He is well on his way, making progress everyday. Even if the conservative movements can grab a fraction of power. I fear it is too late for us to recover fully. If conservatives continue to stand by, things will start changing (for the worse) faster and faster. I Pray for America, and Americans, there are things God just won’t control, when his people continually turn against him, and ignore him, and pure evil will win. Our freedom is just about history.

I was worried about this ...until...I saw how efficient 13 of Obamas committies were doing cleaning up the oil spill. I have never seen a bigger bunch of screw ups in my life. If this is how he plans to form and run a new government...we have little to worry about.

Let me see: This formula has been tried before? With the desired results? SO, the economy of the USA collapses? And the statists take over without any problem? Smooth sailing?

No. I doubt it. Seriously.

We have a lot to worry about. Obama may be ineffective in running government but not in destroying capitalism and America. :(

The Cloward-Piven Strategy succeeded in NY during the 70’s. I think of it as their “test run.”

They are desperate. There first goal is to consolidate power. Or, did I miss something. So after obtaining power with the far fetched goal of keeping it in the hands of the statist, they plan to bring on political chaos through economic collapse? Divergent results, if you ask me. The only thing that makes sense is that they are desperate.

Great article and response.

The massive debt is being pushed to destroy the economy. Hyper inflation destroys capitalism. Takeover is next.

Expect the push for global currency to be next.

They ARE desperate. The Left sees this as their only opportunity to destroy America. Obama’s stated he’s a one-termer. It’s all or nothing, and the Cloward-Piven Strategy IS working to their advantage. Read the article, you may agree with me afterwards.

That's their plan. Utilize "created" crises to overwhelm the system and present government as the solution to every crisis while reducing our freedoms with each new law.

Agreed.

Like a garbage compactor, the unelected, appointed czars will drop into place to smash resistance and build their tyrannical, regulatory fiefdoms on the ‘refuse’ that they consider American freedom to be. Like the shoes at Buchenwald, the glasses, the teeth, the suitcases by the pile, we conservatives will be the byproducts.

First, however, the Left will eat its own. It always does.

Speaking of orchestrated crises:

How come so many people were so quick to see the sinister hand of government in the World Trade Center bombing, yet nobody has yet suggested the gummint sabotaged the BP oil platform as an excuse to cutoff drilling and impose draconian restrictions on further exploration?

I’m not suggesting the Obama Admin would do such a thing, mind you...

Absolutely accurate, so far as I can tell. But believing that the November election will, in itself, “fix” the problem is naive and simplistic. The people we elect MUST FORCE an end to the welfare state forever. They must STOP ObamaCare. they must DIVEST the Feds of private corporations, END federal involvement in education, and disconnect federal meddling in State governments — and RETURN it to it’s CONSTITUTIONAL bounds. PERIOD. And they must NOT take no for an answer. Otherwise, it won’t be a ballot box that solves our problems....

But if the Obama Admin had quickly and efficiently stopped the leak and mopped-up the spill, there'd no longer be a crisis, would there?

Maybe the "screw-ups" are intentional, or rather, Der Obama and Herr Oberleutnant Emmanuel intentionally staffed these activities with known screw-ups.
I mean, how hard would be to find a few blithering incompetents in the federal government, and put them in charge?

I think that if he had nothing else on his plate, this would be a done deal. I think he is finding out that he actually has to do things that he never intended on having to do. This really messes up their timeline and the closer it gets to November the more their backs are to the wall. I think that if we take the house, we have ruined everything. They never factored in the Tea Parties(which they are unable to marginalize) or the oil spill, the financial meltdown of Europe, dissention in the media (finally), being called out on transparency and on and on and on. I can’t imagine they factored this into their scheme. I know their end game but it is definately not going according to plan. Trust me, their plan was a “smooth sailing” kind of plan and this is not what they planned for.

Common Sense tell you that the destruction did not start with Obama's election. The Elite of the Democrat and Republican parties, aided and abetted by true believers, useful idiots, globalists, and those who have been bought and paid for, have been moving to the left for a long, long time.

Obama is just the icing on the cake ... le coup de grâce.

The problem is that while the screw ups can't put together anything like a decent system of government, it's real easy for them to screw up the system we have and destroy the middle class in the process. Too many of our fellow citizens don't get it even now.

Uninteneded consequences. I totally agree. But they continue on..

What we are missing are the things they are doing behind our backs that get very little press while we are focused on things like the oil spill.

Turning this crap around will be a monumental task.

That was my first thought when the rig exploded with no explanation. I didn't want to sound paranoid though. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought along those lines. Part of me feels guilty for even thinking it.

This is exactly right.

Some people think Obama is “just naive” or “inexperienced”, when in fact he is executing a very carefully planned agenda designed to destroy the US and free entreprise system, as we know it, substituting it with total government control, worse than in the ex-communist countries.

“They never factored in the Tea Parties(which they are unable to marginalize)”

They didn’t factor them in because they cannot relate to an indigenous movement that is not centrally headquartered or organized. Some of my quiet, professional, low-key relatives are Tea Partiers—hardly rent-a-mob types like the Dems love to dredge up to do THEIR dirty work. It’s hard to predict or to stop such a patriotic movement that is simply INDIVIDUALS with no marching orders—other than the Constitution, that is.

Excellent review article explaining what the Obama administration is largely about!!!

I believe that Cloward and Piven's ideas were handed down to them to some extent by Lenin and other Bolshevik revolutionaries in Russia in the early 20th century.

O-vomit has been surrounded since birth by communists and was raised to be one. Cloward-Piven, Communism and Islam is as ingrained in his psyche as The Constitution, freedom and Flag is in an American’s psyche. He loves Africa as we love America and, among other things, he intends to drain our wealth into that sh!thole. (Dreams of his father)

Beyond the traitorous press who are his fellow travellers carrying his water and covering his tracks, the most unforgivable fact is that it’s been well known for 60 years that the communists were dedicated to a no-shots-fired infiltration and takeover of the USA. Generations of our worthless politicians have stood by with their fingers up their a$$es and let it happen while enriching themselves.

Have you considered that Obama does NOT want to clean up the spill just yet? What better way to once and for all dispense with the notion of offshore drilling, drilling at ANWR or anywhere else than a timely disaster. Remember that this is the Administration that does not allow a good crisis to go to waste.
