  • Rules for Radicals

    WWW | Saul Alinsky
    Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals Here is the complete list from Alinsky. * RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.) * RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure...

    Can Opinion Turn Against Not-So-Jolly Green Giant?How much of a toll on the American economy does the green movement have to charge before Americans start to wake up to the dastardliness of radical environmentalism? Last month we saw firsthand one impact of Big Green on our economy with the White House announcement that the Keystone XL pipeline won't be built for at least six more months. Ten thousand blue collar jobs, almost all paying more than $50,000 a year, down the drain. It's a project that polls show almost all Americans want, except for the deep-pocketed green elite in Hollywood,...

    April 16, 2014 9:38 AM Students Demand Arrest of Condi Rice for War Crimes By Nathan Harden Self-proclaimed “radical” students at the University of Minnesota are demanding that campus police arrest Condoleezza Rice when she visits campus for a guest lecture tomorrow. Members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at UofM accuse the former Secretary of State of “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity.” Julianne Stanford reports the details in her feature story today at The College Fix. According to Stanford, students published an open-letter calling for Rice’s arrest. “The letter goes on to offer a physical description of...

    Salon ^ | April 8, 2014 | Brittney Cooper
    In her recent post at the Nation, Michelle Goldberg attempts to place the dust-up over #CancelColbert into a broader frame of what she calls “radical anti-liberalism.” She writes: “One of the most striking characteristics of ‘60s radicalism was its aversion to liberalism,” wrote Alice Echols in Daring to Be Bad, her history of radical feminism. “Radicals’ repudiation of liberalism was not immediate; rather, it developed in response to liberalism’s defaults—specifically, its timidity regarding black civil rights and its escalation of the Vietnam War.” Something similar, albeit on a much smaller scale, happened after Bill Clinton ended welfare as we know...

    The Devil’s Due: Satanic monument is inevitable by Daniel Clark In Oklahoma City, a group calling itself The Satanic Temple is proposing to erect a statue of Satan in front of the State Capitol. A design they’ve submitted depicts him as a goat-headed figure with wings, seated on a throne marked with a pentagram, and ministering to two small children. The Satanic Temple claims a right to do this, based on the presence of a monument of the Ten Commandments on Capitol grounds, which the ACLU is now suing to have removed.

    MADISON – Gov.

Not unlike 1848–49 in Europe, 1968 was marked by events that involved student and political protests in several places. There was a dire sense of crescendo and momentum: the heightening of protest against the Vietnam War, the violent turn of the civil-rights movement, the assassination of Martin Luther King, the utopian libertinism...

An unnamed instructor with a U.S. Army Reserve unit put together a slide show in which he lumped you together with the KKK, Al Qaeda, and Hamas. Keep your heads up; that buzzing sound overhead might be a drone coming for you. Down the road, the military's growing conformity to the American left's worldview and values may have dire ramifications for the military, national security, and the nation. The further "leftization" of the nation's armed forces will only exacerbate the deep divisions in American society, between left...

    No matter what progress Republicans may make in electoral politics over the coming years, it will be difficult to roll back the steady march of liberalism that has taken place inside our cultural, bureaucratic and legal institutions — from academia to regulatory agencies to the Department of Justice — but we have to try. A good place to start would be to oppose Obama's radical appointees, the latest being his appointment for secretary of labor, Thomas Perez. Radical liberals are characteristically activists, strategists and organizers. Their plan to infiltrate and dominate academia was hardly spontaneous, and its effects have hardly...

    We have all seen the outrageous, even violent, demonstrations by the leftist big-labor protesters in Michigan over the recently adopted Right-to-Work legislation.  The mirror image happened last February-March when Gov. Scott Walker and the Wisconsin legislature similarly addressed labor laws. It seems the left – the same people with those "Tolerance" and "Diversity" bumper stickers on their Subaru – are the first ones to cross the line of civility.   In my home state of Colorado the left's latest hot button is hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking."  Fracking has been used for more than 60 years to successfully drill over a million...

    Political correctness has led the U.S. government to ignore the growing threat of Muslim-Americans radicalized by the violent Islamist extremist ideology promulgated by al Qaeda and its affiliates, according to a shocking report released by the House Committee on Homeland Security. As a result, the terrorist threat to military communities is “severe and on the rise” while political correctness continues to stifle the military’s ability to effectively understand and counter the threat. In fact, the report actually states that the Obama Administration has chosen political correctness over accurately labeling and identifying certain terrorist attacks appropriately, even denying Purple Hearts medals...

    Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, “The war on terror is over.” “Now that we have killed most of al Qaida,” the source said, “now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.” The article itself describes the Obama administration’s new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism. This, of...

Why would he have a National Labor Relations Board attack Boeing? Because it fits the model of Alinsky radicalism."

    Republican Congressman Peter King has strengthened his security in the wake of "hostile phone calls" and threats from overseas, as he is getting ready to chair a hearing on Islamic radicalization in the United States today. The Congressman's hearing on this important issue, though much overdue, is perhaps the first step towards recognizing that Islam is the culprit, not radical Islam. Islam by its mere existence is radical. "There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that's it," said Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄźan, and he's absolutely right. Decades ago Marshall McLuhan observed, "The medium is...

    U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., told a CNN audience Sunday morning that he will “challenge the basic premise” of upcoming congressional hearings on domestic Islamic radicalization. Ellison, appearing on CNN’s State of the Union with Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., said the hearings will fuel the idea that “America is at war with Islam.” Ellison and King, who have been publicly sparring about the hearings for months, kept their debate civil with show host Candy Crowley. “He’s somebody you can talk to,” Ellison told Hot Dish earlier in the week.

    The way in which we view art is turning out to be another means by which right and left divide. Both the highbrow among us who are searching for beauty and the lowbrow, such as your servant, who like pretty shiny things, are at odds with savants who tell us we are missing the point. Unfortunately, these elites also bring to mind the observation of the late, great Redd Foxx as his alter ego Fred Sanford: “Beauty may only be skin deep but ugly goes straight to the bone.” “For us as radical teachers, what is most important is less...

    Last fall, leftist ideological groups of socialists and communists teamed up with American labor unions to march together for “One Nation.” Now, as labor leaders struggle to maintain a stranglehold on collective bargaining privileges in Wisconsin, the same groups are once again marching together under a banner claiming unions are the heart of the American dream.As we’ve reported, former White House green jobs czar Van Jones this week issued a rallying call for the progressive movement to “renew itself and become again a national force with which to be reckoned.” On Saturday, progressive groups and labor unions are reportedly planning...

    The left-wing radicals are at it again, folks. They're revving up their engines on the revolutionary wings of national mourning -- and sparking the now very familiar incitement-to-tyranny fires among an anxiety-ridden populace. Arizona families have not even buried their dead yet, and already a big-government Democrat has said he will introduce a bill making it illegal to "threaten" or "incite violence" against a federal official. First Amendment and personal accountability be darned. The big-government cultists are on the march. Another religious zealot of the "government can heal all wounds" cult, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) has used the Arizona tragedy...

    Threatening Posts by the Left Exposed January 10, 2011 Of course, the Progressive Left “never lets a crisis go to waste” and they are following Alinsky’s rules to the letter. Instead of sympathy and empathy for the victims in Tucson, they immediately accused the Right of being involved only a few minutes after the massacre was announced... Look at the newly uncovered examples of what the Left is promoting. They are targeting their opposition..the Republicans and the Birthers. Have you seen any Right-wing posters like this?

    Our lefty friends have just come off a pretty a good century playing the blame game on conservatives for "violence." Whether it was corporate goons whacking union organizers at the Battle of the Overpass, or racist Southern cops turning the fire-hoses on civil-rights marchers, or Chicago cops attacking the "kids" in 1968, you knew who the good guys were. Somehow the story of union thugs attacking Tea Party folks, or Reverend Al Sharpton inciting anti-Korean riots, or anti-WTO anarchists vandalizing downtown Seattle didn't have quite the same resonance with the American people. So our lefty friends play the right-wing violence...

    CAIR calls Peter King a McCarthyist for planned hearing on Muslim radicalization. The executive director of CAIR’s San Francisco office is calling Republican congressman Peter King a McCarthyist for his plan to use his position as the new chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee to hold hearings on the new Muslim radicalization that’s happening in the US. While his intent is totally justified in light of the increases in Muslim Americans becoming radicalized—as evidenced in the foiling of the recent plots—CAIR is actively discouraging such closer looks at America’s Muslim community by branding concerned Americans like King a McCarthyist.
  • Progress Towards Utopia

    The utopia sought by progressives and the like is far from a fairytale. Many countries in the world have achieved the utopia status that radical leftists are fighting for here in America. While I could cite nations like Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, and the murderous Soviet Union as examples, they seem to have lost their flavor in modern America when comparison to the progressive utopia. In case you haven’t caught on yet, the perfect society trumpeted by progressives and radical leftists is far from the storybook tale of sunshine and lollipops where everyone enjoys free health care, free education, no...
