President Obama was a student of Saul Alinsky and Cloward and Piven, and he learned well. When he campaigned in 2008 he promised to fundamentally change America, and he’s done a great job of that by forcing the country to purchase a product deemed acceptable to the government or pay a fine for not doing so (this same type of edicts from King George is what truly started The American Revolution – Tyranny Enough Already – I borrowed this statement from KrisAnne Hall’s presentation last week), downgrading our credit rating, shredding our God-given Bill of Rights while Congress idly stands by, “buddying up” to the Muslim Brotherhood to the detriment of freedom of religion. This administration and our complacent Congress hasn’t let a good crisis go to waste yet. In my opinion, crisis after crisis has been the plan and a means to the end.
From James Simpson published in The American Thinker (September 2008): Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer [and Hillary Clinton mentor] Saul Alinsky. 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.
“Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules,” Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system’s failure to “live up” to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one.
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.
No matter where the strategy is implemented, it shares the following features:
- The offensive organizes previously unorganized groups eligible for government benefits but not currently receiving all they can.
- The offensive seeks to identify new beneficiaries and/or create new benefits.
- The overarching aim is always to impose new stresses on target systems, with the ultimate goal of forcing their collapse.
As I have written elsewhere, the Radical Left’s offensive to promote illegal immigration is “Cloward-Piven on steroids”. ACORN is at the forefront of this movement as well, and was a leading organization among a broad coalition of radical groups, including Soros’ Open Society Institute, the SEIU, and others, that became the Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. CCIR fortunately failed to gain passage for the 2007 illegal immigrant amnesty bill, but its goals have not changed.
The burden of illegal immigration on our already overstressed welfare system has been widely documented. Some towns in California have even been taken over by illegal immigrant drug cartels. The disease, crime and overcrowding brought by illegal immigrants places a heavy burden on every segment of society and every level of government, threatening to split this country apart at the seams. In the meantime, radical leftists efforts to grant illegal immigrants citizenship guarantee a huge pool of new democrat voters. With little border control, terrorists can also filter in.
Last week, we published a conglomeration of articles telling the story of the TxGOP passing a stronger immigration plank than the Texas Solution, giving no amnesty. And now the Texas border is at crisis level. A friend of mine, Sherry Gregory, posted the following on her Facebook page yesterday:
I find it extremely interesting that immediately after the people of Texas voted down “amnesty” in the Texas Republican Party Platform our border was immediately overwhelmed with “children” being smuggled across the Texas border. Smugglers do not work for nothing…who is paying them…their poverty stricken parents? Not buying that.
Why aren’t they afraid? New Use-of-Force Restrictions Placed on Border Patrol Agents:
“Under the new restrictions, Border Patrol agents will be required to avoid situations where deadly force may be used.”
There are tens of thousands of children languishing on our southern border because Mexican drug cartels are brilliant strategists and DC politicians are excellent enablers. DC is complicit in the children’s crisis, and the American people are being played yet again. This was disaster by design.– Chris Burgard
From David Michael Lynch: “The traffic continues to get worse every day and I don’t see little kids, do you? Everything I have predicted has come true, and so I warn you once more about the PERFECT STORM… Also known as the date when the Obamacare business mandate kicks in and the job market is flooded with illegal immigrants, Americans will be on the welfare lines that stem for miles.”
Texans can’t look to Washington DC to fix this crisis – they caused it purposefully! Texans need to take care of Texas. We have work to do, and we need to do it now!

We must take control of this crisis or David Michael Lynch is right about the perfect storm.
