    World Net Daily ^ | 07/19/2015 | Chuck Norris
    In May 1966, Columbia University sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven published what would become known as their Cloward–Piven strategy in the liberal magazine, “The Nation.” Their article was titled, “The weight of the poor: A strategy to end poverty.” In short, the Cloward-Piven strategy is a political plan to overload the U.S. public welfare system with the goal to replace it with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” Wikipedia summarized their strategy well: “The two stated that many Americans who were eligible for welfare were not receiving...

That’s the stunning discovery revealed in a series of direct messages between three activists.

McKesson later confirmed the hack to The Baltimore Sun.

    Most people think that the two most important names in the Democratic race for the White House in 2016 are Obama and Clinton. However, the two names you should be paying attention to are Cloward and Piven. Don't know who they are? Don't worry, most people don't — but conservative commentator and generally kicka** guy Chuck Norris is going to make sure they do. In an op-ed for WND, Norris explained that the two people — Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven — were academics who came up with a plan to introduce permanent socialism in the United States.

    America was never about guaranteeing the equality of pay or outcome. It has always been about achieving the equality of opportunity, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". That's what freedom and liberty is all about The three main suspects in ‘60s/‘70s radical politics are Richard Cloward, Francis Fox Piven and Saul Alinsky. Since most of the leaders of the modern Democrat Party, especially Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, are adherents to ‘60s/‘70s political views, let’s review the aspects and beliefs of the three people most responsible for those views and how the current national political climate was accomplished.

    The majority-minority denizens of the urban hellhole I call Baltimogadishu are getting exactly what they demanded (and deserve) for electing a 100% Afro-Marxist cabal; a cabal which viciously joins the Obama administration and media in demonizing local cops, while excusing and even sanctifying mobs of unfettered black terrorist thugs roaming and ruling the streets. Rates of mayhem and murder in Baltimore are skyrocketing through the roof, with police often surrounded and attacked by seething crowds of terrorists when they respond to calls. Given impossible work conditions, and a vacuum of official leadership or support, rank-and-file cops in Baltimore are apparently...

    In the United States—as in all of the world’s wealthier nations—ending poverty is not a matter of resources. Many economists, including Timothy Smeeding of the University of Wisconsin (and former director of the Institute for Research on Poverty) have argued that every developed nation has the financial wherewithal to eradicate poverty. In large part this is because post-industrial productivity has reached the point where to suggest a deficit in resources is laughably disingenuous. And despite the occasional political grandstanding against welfare, there is no policy, ideology or political party that is on the books as pro-starvation, pro-homelessness, pro-death or anti-dignity....

It’s a gamble no sane leader would take. The life and death issue is Ebola. The President is more concerned with political correctness (and golf) than taking common sense precautions to prevent a deadly pandemic. Why does this President not see his responsibility is to keep the odds as low as possible? There are three simple, common sense actions any President who cared about American citizens would take:

By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacationland for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards. Who will pay for this paradise? The American Middle Class, mostly Republicans, of course, whom Obama despises as narrow-minded clingers.

    The Obama administration-driven calamity at this nation’s southern border is no naiveté-caused accident. Instead, it’s the latest manifestation of what clear-eyed observers must recognize is just one of many concerted attempts to overwhelm this nation’s institutions and its social, psychological and physical infrastructure for the apparent purpose of leaving it permanently weakened and fundamentally changed. Conscious or not — and I would argue in most cases that it is quite conscious — what we’re seeing is a comprehensive application of the left’s long-championed Cloward-Piven strategy. The folklore behind the strategy claims that its enunciation by Richard A. Cloward and Frances...

    "David Frum has posted a rebuttal to my argument in favor of reparations. I appreciate David's engagement with the issue. I often miss the old days when The Atlantic's writers would engage each other in running debate, so I'm happy for the chance to get back into that kind of conversation here. On y va. David grounds his rebuttal in The Philadelphia Plan, an affirmative action program that David believes qualifies as reparations. I disagree. " Yada Yada Yada.

    This weekend, Obama swapped five dangerous Taliban commanders for one questionable American soldier. The five Taliban commanders are: Mullah Mohammad Fazl (Taliban army chief of staff), Mullah Norullah Noori (senior Taliban military commander), Abdul Haq Wasiq (Taliban deputy minister of intelligence), Khairullah Khairkhwa (Taliban governor of the Herat province and former interior minister), and Mohammed Nabi (senior Taliban figure and security official). In return, we got one America soldier who, his peers write, abandoned his post to join the Taliban, and who's Islamic-beard-adorned father has worked tirelessly to release more terrorists. Immediately after this, we have Hagel and Rice 'gaslighting'...
  • In first month, the vast majority of Obamacare sign-ups are in Medicaid

    washingtonpost ^ | November 1 | Sarah Kliff,
    The first month of the new health law’s rollout reveals an unexpected pattern in several states: a crush of people applying for an expansion of Medicaid and a trickle of sign-ups for private insurance. This early imbalance — in some places, nine out of 10 enrollees are in Medicaid — has taken some experts by surprise. The Affordable Care Act, which expanded Medicaid to cover millions of the poorest Americans who couldn’t otherwise afford coverage, envisions a more even split with an expanded, robust private market. “When we first saw the numbers, everyone’s eyes kind of bugged out,” said Matt...

    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. Their tactics and intended consequences include: Strategically planned “crises” to systematically takeover private industry. Flooding government with impossible financial burdens until the debt becomes unsustainable. Destruction of...

    Five years ago, Jim Simpson informed America of the grand conspiratorial sabotage presenting Barack Obama for the United States Presidency. That is, he presented much more than we already knew, to those who were already awake, aware, alarmed, and looking for more. And we have all continued to tell those who have not been willfully, unrepentantly, and fatally ignorant. This article also introduced to many the very old, Marxist and fascist (some would say Illuminist and Jacobin) strategy of collapsing a nation’s economy through government obligations and debt, recently reprised as the “Cloward-Piven strategy.” Whether reviewing or reading for the...

    On Poland and Detroit. Not For the Faint of Heart. Back to finance. Poland did exactly what I and a few others have been warning about for years with regards to private retirement accounts and pensions. Poland confiscated 50% of all private pension funds last week. PRIVATE pensions. As Warren Pollock and I have been screaming, one of the largest chunks of collateral left in the system is private retirement money, both in the form of 401(k)s and IRAs and in private pension accounts. In the U.S., the latest data for 2012 shows that there are now $10.5 Trillion in...

    Like the car salesman in National Lampoon’s Vacation (played by Eugene Levy) said: “You think you hate it now, but wait ’til you drive it!” The same applies to the Affordable Healthcare Act (aka, Obamacare). levycar Why will you hate Obamacare once you drive it? 1. Forced forced home inspections by gov’t agents: Under Obamacare, government agents can engage in “home health visits” for those in certain “high-risk” categories. Those categories include: • Families where mom is not yet 21; • Families where someone is a tobacco user; • Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities,...

    For a little sneak preview of where our ruling class’ obsession with amnesty for illegal aliens will lead us, take a look at what’s happening on the border right now. An astonishing surge of asylum seekers has literally overwhelmed U.S. Immigration in San Diego, forcing them to rent out hotel rooms to accommodate the overflow, while some aliens were “released to cities around the U.S.,” according to Fox News: Sources say one day last week, 200 border-crossers came through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry claiming asylum while and as many as 550 overflowed inside the processing center there and...

    >Speaking “on the condition of anonymity,” a Republican lawmaker told one Capitol Hill newspaper last week that conservatives pushing to stop the implementation of Obamacare had “no plan B.” Before diving into the substance of the criticism, let’s spend a minute on how that criticism was delivered. Folks in Washington love speaking “on the condition of anonymity.” In a meandering profile of NBC News’s Luke Russert, a reporter for the liberal New Republic wrote, “Fellow reporters related the meanest anecdotes they could think of—‘but not for attribution, OK?’” For one reason or another, these reporters have decided criticizing Russert wasn’t...
