The Well-Greased Machine
Furthermore (Originally Posted 10.26.13): Parts of this post were originally written in August 2009; six months after Obama was elected. It is being updated now due to its original length and relevance. Most Americans to this day have never heard of Cloward and Piven. Their tactics set the stage for the Florida Bush-Gore recount crisis of 2000, and since, have introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections.
By decimating insurers and overloading Medicaid, the system collapses, with nowhere to turn, leading to single-payer. It’s all part of the Obama plan. The goals of socialism is communism. This is the Progressive Democrat’s blueprint.
Obama’s rapid rise was planned for many years, but it would be ‘opportunity’ that would guide when he was told to make the move for the Presidency. It was seven-years in the planning. A perfect storm of opportunities provided the window for Obama—the long-term denigration and violation of the constitution, the financial attack on and manipulation of our economy by the world’s ‘central bankers’, the grabbing of executive powers by W. Bush, and our collective exhaustion over a $1 trillion dollar war.
Under the guise of ‘recovery’ and ‘stabilize’, the Obama plan is to subvert through ‘manufactured crises’. And, his bag of tricks reflects more about the relevancy of tactic in achieving his government-control. Borrowed from Alinsky’s playbook. The late Alinsky, a trench-warfare socialist who despised American capitalism, advised community organizers like Obama to “ridicule” or “laugh at the enemy” to provoke “irrational anger.”
According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to ‘bait an opponent’ into reacting. “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.” To achieve this, you must create chaos, confusion, insecurity and retreat. Everyday, Barry translates several of Alinsky’s rules into battle tactics. Using race, class, and gender to manipulate the energy inherent in discontent – as he dominates his “Lady MacBeth” on the world stage.
Obama’s rhetorical window-dressing is easily recognizable as Alinsky-esque camouflage:
- Rule: “Multiple issues mean constant action and life” for the cause.
- Rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
- Rule: “Rub raw the resentments of the people; search out controversy and issues.”
- Rule: “A mass impression can be lasting and intimidating.”
- Rule: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep the opposition off-balance.”
- Rule: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational.
- Rule: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
- Rule: “Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.”
But there is a deliberate strategy here; to confuse names and concepts. “Capitalism” equated with “inequality, unfairness and undemocratic”; the “rich and wealthy” with “greedy”; a ”constitutional republic” mistaken for “democracy”; a ‘democracy” equated with “greater common good”; “social justice” with ‘equal standing and access”; “individual privileges” with “collective rights”. The confusion of terms are Marxist tactics to confuse while the work of the money men goes on behind the scenes.
The Obama goal is central ownership and control of all forms of productivity, for the perceived benefit of the working class. They want to run the banking, auto, energy, food, water, insurance and health care industries, etc. In all cases, they have titled their agenda “reform” because every American can relate to the term “reform.” Obama is destroying “free market” infrastructures. As infrastructures become strained to the breaking point, communism will have emerged.
In the name of stabilizing the banking system, Obama is nationalizing it. Under the guise of “Progressive,” Obama is executing government-control of your life, your bank account and your medical records. Under the facade of “fairness”, Obama is redistributing wealth. Obama’s plan is to pierce the vein of capitalism. To do so, requires massive escalation of government debt as he chips away at the infrastructures that prop-up that wealth.
Under the rubric of “recovery”, Obama is, or has, created a permanent electoral majority that does not pay taxes, but counts on ever-expanding welfare checks and dependency from the government. Yet, every crisis, every policy, every spending bill is a Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland musical. Obama is systematically authoring an economic collapse which would lead to political turmoil and ultimately socialism. When things collapse. Everyone starts at the bottom together.
In an effort to change permanently the partisan balance in America, he has weakened border controls. A demographic change in the electorate, rationing of healthcare by the government, surge of unionization, escalated borrowing and monetizing of debt and crippling of freedoms. And, buried within the bowels of this Administration is the desired taking of citizens firearms. Barry is following almost to the letter the blueprint for socialist revolution drafted by the father of community organizing, Saul Ainsky.
Cloward-Piven is a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. Sometimes known as “flood-the-rolls” or ”bankrupt-the-cities” strategy. Its approach calls for swamping welfare rolls with new applicants – more than the system could bear -pushing society into financial, social chaos and economic collapse. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force re-distribution of the nation’s wealth.
In short, the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands. The Cloward-Piven Strategy is the overall strategic design and Saul Alinsky’s techniques are the tactics. Using Alinsky techniques, taxpayer money, community organizations and the control Obama has over Congress, the media, and government agencies, it’s easy to view Obama’s goals:
- Destruction of the middle class and economy of America through ‘bailouts’ and ‘stimulus’ packages sponsored as ‘revitalizing the American economy’
- Expansion of federal powers over states and individuals, especially on our constitutional rights as specified by the first ten amendments to the constitution
- Discrediting our founding fathers and the constitution as something old and out-dated and used to forward ‘American imperialism’.
- Complete control over the media/message
- Domination of fund-raising for political campaigns
- Expansion of the powers of the Executive branch.
- Evisceration of the military in a slow, methodical manner
- Strategically planned ‘crises’ involving foreign policy, the economy, and military affairs.
- Increasing our vulnerability to attack.
- Promoting social unrest and violence
All of these actions will be ‘buried’ in Executive Orders, unrelated budget appropriations bills, ‘new bank regulations’, and legislation with a nice title but designed to do the opposite. The ‘crises’ that hit us will be handled by a small group of people; its plans unknown to the public. Within newly organized groups, each offensive would find an ample pool of foot soldier recruits willing to advance its radical agenda at little or no pay, and expand its base of reliable voters, legal or otherwise.
Its revolution-blended Alinsky concepts includes an avalanche of misinformation and hype: a virtual blizzard of emotion, deception, intimidation, derisiveness, and extremely confusing messages. This was designed to confuse, to stop us in place, to hurt, to hide the true agenda, and to exploit our need to know. A lot of fires are lit, almost daily, with seemingly no pattern and yet so much smoke—you could feel something going on.
The Obama radicals’ threatening tactics also would accrue an intimidating reputation, providing a wealth of opportunities for extorting monetary and other concessions from target organizations. In the meantime, successful offensives create an ever increasing drag on society as the drain on local resources persists indefinitely. The Radical Left’s offensive to promote illegal aliens is “Cloward-Piven on steroids.” The burden of illegal aliens on our already overstressed welfare system would be catastrophic.
While virtually all the ObamaCare focus is trained on the program’s dysfunctional website, few fully understand what is really happening. There’s an inherent mechanism at work to overload the states Medicaid systems. By decimating private health-care plans and overloading Medicaid, the system collapses, with nowhere to turn, leading to single-payer. Get it? Medicaid is a single-payer system.
The Obamacare law was written, and designed to vastly expand Medicaid, and pay for it by eviscerating Medicare. Recall the gutting of $700 billion away from Medicare to fund the expansion of Obamacare. This is Obama’s destructive blueprint for America. Shift resources from the elderly to Medicaid, getting to their single-payer system, and ‘cost shifting’ slowly but surely away from the elderly.
And to note, state Medicaid programs must recover certain Medicaid benefits paid on behalf of an enrollee. For those age 55 or older, states are required to seek recovery of payments and seize assets from the individual’s estate to pay the government back, upon death. Yet, those who never worked a day in their life living off welfare, food stamps, subsidized housing pay nothing. Its redistribution.
As individuals lose their private insurance, and private health-care insurer’s tumble, the push toward a state Medicaid collapse is the Progressive’s plan toward a 100% federal government-controlled single-payer system. Health-care workers are then unionized. The revolutionaries are running a well-greased machine to create financial and social chaos. The dysfunctional Obamacare website is only a ruse.
In other words, its all going according to plan.
