Should Stupid Is As Stupid Does Be America’s New Motto? And How Did We Get Here

Fifty Years Ago… 25 Years Ago, Nearly Everyone Would Have Been Asking This Question:

ImageBut now what is wrong with Americans is the question being asked all over the world?  The only people who are not asking it in large enough numbers are Americans themselves.

The world is asking… what has happened to America?  What is wrong with Americans?  How could they have elected him twice? And why is Barack Obama still in the White House?

America’s Founding Fathers warned us that in order for a system like ours, a democratic republic, to work and survive, we must have an educated and engaged populace. The ruling elite, no matter what you want to call them… Globalists, Marxists, Socialists, Communists, Progressives, Statists or just flat out power grabbers and power brokers understand this as well. The more they divide us, dumb us down, divert our attentions and the final blow would be to disarm us, the more money, power and control they will have.

Andrea Tantaros and her co-hosts on The Five were discussing the so-called ‘lost’ Lois Lerner emails by the IRS… yes the very emails involved in the scandal involving the targeting of tea party, grassroots, Christian, any non-Muslim religious groups, patriotic and conservative organizations by the IRS.  And if any of the aforementioned names were part of the actual name of your business, group or organization, they held up your application for tax exempt status.  Tantaros commented that the most inept U.S. President and White House in the history of the United States seems to have no problem looking completely overwhelmed and incompetent, but that it is really more and more obvious that their actions and cover-ups are just plain lies.  Finally people are at least willing to say that word… lies.  They are liars and manipulators.  But unfortunately, even among the informed, the few true pure journalists left and even among the so-called right wing pundits, only a few are (even at this stage) willing to recognize or admit that all of this… the scandals, the lies, the fundamental transformation of America is on purpose and was always the plan.  Both Barack and Michelle Obama uttered that phrase… fundamental transformation of America on the campaign trail.  And the small percentage of people who did see, do see, do blog about it or speak out are immediately labeled right wing kooks, conspiracy theorists and those they really fear are demonized, like Sarah Palin.

The reason most people think they like Hillary Clinton and think they Hate Sarah Palin is because the powers that be created that scenario in their minds beginning with Council on Foreign Relations member and operative Katie Couric’s purposefully orchestrated destructive interview of newly chosen Republican Vice Presidential Candidate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who rocked the house at the convention with her speech, inspiring women… Americans from both parties, sending waves of fear down the spins of the Progressive coalition. Why?  Because she was a threat to their plans! She also had a long list of impressive accomplishments as Governor on her resume as well as having been the former Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, unlike either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. (Every time she or her operatives are asked, Hillary has a hard time coming up with her most… any significant accomplishments as Secretary of State.) And don’t be fooled by the hype, Hillary’s greatest fear is having to run against Sarah in the anticipated race of the century by many. The CFR is also one of the great promoters of the idea that the Tea Party is evil and obstructive, and were part of the coalition that was telling people not to worry about Hillary’s Small Arms Treaty negotiations with the United Nations.

The answer to what is wrong with Americans and why President Obama is still in office boils down to the following:

  1. Dumbing Down of America  –  It is what Common Core is all about… dumbing-down, indoctrinating and controlling the next generation.
  2. Disengagement by the Populace  –  All politics are local and understanding what is going on in your backyard as well as around the globe is more important than ever.  And to that you need both an educated, but also an informed public who is getting their information from more than a controlled media that has drunk from the same ideological cup and marches in lock step with those in power. The power elite are banking on the fact that the American public is stupid… or at least uninformed, with their help.
  3. Alinsky’s Rules – Have you read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (see below)?  It is the Bible for the left… for those in the White House right now… for the unnoticed Shadow Party for years.  Alinsky’s strategies are why the Obama Syndicate Are Assaulting Americans from Every Angle.  It is also why the scandals and crisis never stops.
  4. Cloward and Piven Strategy – A strategy dreamed up by a couple Marxist professors to overwhelm and change the system… America. (See below)
  5. Divide and Conquer through the use of a combination of Distractions, Manipulation, Political Correctness, Diversions, Multiculturalism, Division including the Use of the Race Card and guilt… white guilt for slavery and the guilt it would create by turning away children at our border.
  6. Diminishment of the Family and Religion in Middle America’s life – Most children spend more time with their cell phones, handhelds, and computers than with their families.  And they learn their values from television and the opinions of other children who also lack input from family or a foundation in religion and traditional values.
  7. The Plan by the Ruling Elite  –  The Obama Administration Is A Well-Greased Machine… and the Plan. Yes, there is a much larger plan at play. Kissinger in 2008: There Will Be “Bipartisan” Push for New World Order, Whoever is Elected President

Dumbing Down of America

The dumbing down of America has been a purposeful process that starts in the schools with our children, including not teaching parts of our history and traditions, re-writing history, actually indoctrinating our kids and telling them that their parents don’t understand the new ideas and nudging them toward planned parenthood and political activities without their parent’s knowledge and even nudging them toward reporting their parents to social services that has created some pretty questionable situations.

They are also sexualizing our children as part of the curriculum.

But even through it all, there are Millennials, who support Obama in 2008 and even 2012, waking up.

Talk to anyone who grew up in Hitler’s Germany, the USSR, or in any dictatorship and they will draw the parallels of what went on in their country and what is happening here and within our schools.  People like Charlotte Iserbyt, Kitty Werthmann and David Horowitz have been warning us for decades.

“Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction… unless you can control it,” and “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!” … Adolf Hitler

Cloward and Piven Strategy (h/t to VA Right): 

Back in the Sixties, Marxists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven (Mentors of the Clintons and those calling the shots in the Obama administration now… or of their parents) came up with a ‘great strategy’ from their perspective, for overloading and collapsing democratic welfare states, paving the way for socialist tyranny.  Basically, the idea was to hit the system with a tidal wave of demands it couldn’t refuse, and couldn’t possibly fulfill.  The Left would then insist that the moral argument for the system remained intact, so the only way to meet those impossible demands was to scrap every vestige of Constitutional restraint and republican self-government, instituting a totalitarian system that in theory would forcibly restructure society to promote “fairness” and give all those government dependents what they “deserve.”  (In practice, of course, what you actually get is an iron-fisted dictatorship that cooks up reports to make itself look good, or simply tells the unhappy citizens to shut up and obey when things deteriorate to the point that no volume of phony reports can paper over the problems – say, when the glorious worker’s paradise of Venezuela runs out of tap water.)

Congressmen Steve Stockman (R-Texas) and Steve King (R-Iowa) spoke out on Wednesday:  “Obama using ‘Cloward-Piven maneuver’ in an attempt to flood the border with illegals’ part of infamous socialist strategy.

Cloward and Piven were specifically interested in replacing welfare programs with a government-guaranteed annual income for everyone – an idea that still emerges from the more absurd quarters of the Left occasionally – but the basic idea of overloading the republican system and replacing it with centrally-planned tyranny can be applied in many different ways.  Take a look at the humanitarian crisis on the southern border, which I wrote about two weeks ago.  It has since burst onto the front pages with some astonishing stories, including leaked photos of illegal alien children – many of them 12 years old and younger – “warehoused” in overcrowded facilities, where there are growing concerns about sanitation and diseaseCBS News in Houston writes of unaccompanied minors sleeping on plastic boards in a Nogales, Arizona warehouse after being flown in from south Texas.  According to some estimates, there are nearly a thousand children in that warehouse now.

There’s nothing complicated about what is happening here.  Barack Obama invited these people to send their children to the United States as refugees.  He’s already made illegal use of executive orders to gut the immigration system; he’s talking about doing it again, and the people of South and Central America can hear him just fine.  There have been anecdotal reports of a message being spread throughout Central American countries, by everything from word-of-mouth gossip to news media: “Go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.”  (It will come as no surprise to learn that the Mexican government is not doing much to halt the train of amnesty-seekers headed for American soil.  On the contrary, corrupt Mexican officials are trying to get a cut of the profits from the refugee-smuggling trade.)

WND: An organization of former Border Patrol agents charged Wednesday that the federal government, under the administration of President Obama, is deliberately arranging for a flood of immigrant children to arrive in America for political purposes.

“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,” said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.

Now, that’s not hard to believe.  When in the entire history of this country have thousands of children just suddenly decided on their own to walk hundreds of miles and cross several national borders to get to the United States?

And it’s not just the President sending those signals, since there’s a vibrant bipartisan amnesty chorus in Congress.  (Majority House Leader Eric Cantor (R) was one of those and it cost him his election. Cantor wrote the ‘Kids First Dream Act’ to give amnesty to kids knowing the parents would follow.  He also wrote the amendment to allow illegals to serve in the US Military. And he was supporting other bits of related legislation too. )  Obama will only seize power to rewrite the laws if Congress doesn’t do it fast enough for his taste, or if he sees electoral advantage in taking matters into his own hands.

Young illegals are particularly cherished by the American ruling class, which has dubbed them “Dreamers” and frankly describes them as superior in motivation and potential to native-born young people.  There is every reason for families who live in South America to think their children will be given citizenship, plus special perks (such as access to discounted college tuition rates) if they can get them to the U.S. border.  The Obama Administration is even talking about providing the young illegals with attorneys.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency has become involved at President Obama’s direction.

This tidal wave of illegals is not an accident, and not entirely a result of conditions in Central America (which have deteriorated lately, but were already bad enough to inspire any sane person to seek a new life elsewhere.)  These people were summoned.  And now that they’re here, the system is collapsing beneath their weight.  In addition to the refugees flown to Arizona in the CBS News story above, the El Paso Times reports two planeloads of illegals arriving for processing.  ”The vast majority of individuals transferred were family units from Central America and Mexico with children,” according to an El Paso official.

Contrary to popular mythology about President Obama being some sort of deportation hard-liner, the truth is that most of his “deportations” were actually catch-and-release scenarios played out at the border – people who were essentially repulsed rather than caught and deported.  Such people were not counted as “deportations” in the past – remember what I said about the government cooking the books to make itself look better?  Well, catch-and-release only works when the illegal aliens in question come from Mexico.  There’s no practical method for sending the wave of families and unaccompanied minors surging in from Central America back to their homes.  They’re most likely here to stay.  And even though the Obama Administration had every reason to know they were coming, the immigration system was curiously unprepared to deal with them.  Cloward-Piven tactics work even better when the system is hollowed out and made ready for speedy collapse.

Does the amnesty chorus recoil from this humanitarian crisis in shame and ask, “My God, what have we done?”  Do they accept this stunning proof of a point often raised by amnesty critics: lax border security and indulgence of illegal immigration causes the flood of illegal aliens – rational people who respond to incentives – to intensify?  Of course not.  They’re using the horror they have created as leverage to get amnesty moving even faster.  Read full related article Here.

And yes… it is more than just children coming over in droves.

Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals:

Know them and know what Democrats are doing! You can’t beat an enemy you don’t understand… it is why we lost in Vietnam and the wars in the Middle East.

* 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 adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

* RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

* RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

* RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)

* RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)

* RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

* RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

* RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

* RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)

* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Divide and Conquer

If you watch and analyze what is going on… the scandals, lies, and diversion after diversion through the use of a combination of Distractions, Manipulation, Political Correctness, Diversions, Multiculturalism, Division including the Use of the Race Card and Guilt… White Guilt… for slavery and the guilt it would create by turning away children at our border after understanding what is in play and the Alinsky and Cloward and Piven tools to reach the ultimate goal… the plan, it puts everything into perspective.

Diminishment of the Family and Religion in Middle America’s life:

Perhaps one of the most impressive warnings, that many of that era listened to and heard was from Paul Harvey

Video: If I Were the Devil: Paul Harvey (Warning for a Nation)

The Plan by the Ruling Elite: 

The Obama Administration Is Indeed a Well-Greased Machine… and the Plan, and there is a much larger plan at play. Kissinger in 2008: There Will Be “Bipartisan” Push for New World Order, Whoever is Elected President.  The tea party and people like Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Ted Cruz, Ron and Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Michele Bachmann, Allen West, Mike Pense, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh,  and other grassroots, political and alternative patriots got in their way; delaying their plan but certainly not defeating it.  And as we see by Kissinger’s statement is not just Democrats that are followers of Progressivism or Globalism and in favor of restructuring the United States or creating a New World Order.  In fact, it was former President George H.W. Bush (41) who first uttered the words, “a New World Order” out load in a public speech.

The Hypocrisy is in the Devil and The Devil’s In The Marxism

But the will to affect change has to be in the American People!

Even moderate ratings juggler Bill O’Reilly seems to finally have had enough… In his talking points on on 6.18.14, he questioned when Americans would stand up… saying it is long past time for the American people to get in touch with what is going on and wake-up.  O’Reilly is promoting that Americans boycott Mexico in retaliation for both the orchestrated onslaught of illegal children at our Southern border which they are aiding and the incarceration and abhorrent treatment of PTSD sufferer Sgt. Andrew Tahmoorissi,  imprisoned for making the wrong turn at the border, by Mexican police and officials.


America’s Motto has changed from In ‘God We Trust’ to ‘Stupid Is As Stupid Does’…

And America’s has changed from the ‘Bald Eagle’ to the ‘Skunk’… (haven’t heard that on… think about it!)

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
