Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis
The Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism through deliberately planned crisis achieved largely by Overloading the system.
Notice the present Overloading of the voter registrations system.
Notice the Overloading of subprime mortages that caused a quake in our economic system.
On May 2, 1966, an article in The Nation, pillar of the ultra-left, elucidated this well planned out strategy created by two Columbia University professors.
It's a plan that takes time, organization, and patience.
By 1975 New York City was in bankrupcy. In that year Mayor Rudy Giuliani cited Cloward and Piven by name as being responsible for an effort at economic sabotage. By that time, implementation of the Cloward-Piven Strategy had accomplished changing cultural attitudes toward welfare from a temporary expedient to an end-in-itself.
Notice that Overloading of welfare rolls was the cause. In 1960 there were 150,000 welfare cases, by the 70's, there were 1.5 million cases. One person on welfare for every two working people.
The seed of our current economic crisis was the Overloading of a system of granting mortgages to risky lenders. While the banking system could have easily absorbed any losses as long as there weren't too many of these loans, as the result of political pressure demanding higher and higher quotas of these subprime loans, and, in addition, the further bad investment practices that ensued with the abandonment of basic banking principles, the system was poised for collapse as soon as there was any economic blip.
Was this disaster the result of well intentioned poor planning and accompanying opportunism, or was ACORN used in a larger, deliberate, long-term strategy to attempt to overthrow capitalism.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Chaos was such a long-term plot, with its main theme, collapse brought about by Overloading the system. The article by James Simpson shows Cloward-Piven Strategy connections to Alinsky, ACORN, Soros, Ayres with Obama at its epicenter.
Since McCarthy's mishandling of the HUAC investigations, and subsequent disgrace, the idea that there are deceptive long-term plots deliberately aimed at harming them is so abhorrent to Americans, that they disbelieve any facts to the contrary out of hand. Where is the line between Conspiracy Theory and genuine conspiracy?
It's at times of economic crises that democracies are vulnerable to takeover by extreme leftist domination, whether by elections or coup. Manipulation of situations which facilitate the creation of a point of vulnerability is an essential component of radical strategy.
In addition, preparation of the population is achieved by demoralization of the society over a period of time. In an in-depth series of You Tube interviews, Yuri Bezmenov, former KGB operative, has discussed these preparations for demorilization by, for one, exaggerating grievances, and by changing the perceptions of ideological reality.
Some Excerpts from
Barack Obama and The Strategy of Manufactured Crisis
Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama's life comprise a who's who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Chaos plus Alinsky tactics are discussed.
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation's wealth.
Rudy Giuliani commented on the negative influence of Cloward-Piven in NYC.
The vast expansion of welfare in New York City that came of the NWRO's [Welfare] Cloward-Piven tactics sent the city into bankruptcy in 1975. Rudy Giuliani cited, Cloward and Piven by name as being responsible for, an effort at economic sabotage. He also credited Cloward-Piven with changing the cultural attitude toward welfare from that of a temporary expedient to a lifetime entitlement, an attitude which in-and-of-itself has caused perhaps the greatest damage of all.
ACORN's voter rights tactics follow the Cloward-Piven Strategy
1. Register as many Democrat voters as possible, legal or otherwise and help them vote, multiple times if possible.
2. Overwhelm the system with fraudulent registrations using multiple entries of the same name, names of deceased, random names from the phone book, even contrived names.
3. Make the system difficult to police by lobbying for minimal identification standards
I ask you, is it possible ACORN would train Obama to take leadership positions within ACORN without telling him what he was training for? Is it possible ACORN would put Obama in leadership positions without clueing him into what his purpose was? Is it possible that this most radical of organizations would put someone in charge of training its trainers, without him knowing what it was he was training them for?
Obama Quote, Speech to ACORN, November 2007
I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.
Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision.
