Obama and the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis

How perfectly they have played the devilish schemes. Too bad there are no brownie points in hell.  Apparently they have taught the tactic to their radical Muslim brethren who are pretty good themselves of orchestrating crisis to usher in change, aka, the "Arab Spring" and the current pretense of a video inciting radicals against America.  
The information presented below is from 2009...this is for you late bloomers and a good refresher for the rest of us.  We have to battle the brainwashing attempts through the MSM illusion that everything is just happening as a matter of course, rather than what is the actual truth; we live in a constant manufactured news cycle and the purposeful destruction of America justifies their end game- Global Domination.  They must have the former to achieve the latter.  - W.E.

My beloved America is under assault from within. Our economy is in chaos, and our leader is enjoying every moment of suffering experienced by the American people because through it, he is moving our nation closer to becoming a socialist state. Without chaos, he would be unable to accomplish his goals.

I realize that this is a strong accusation made against a president of the United States. But, as Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” And believe me, he and his boss are not allowing any crisis to go to waste, as they intentionally sabotage our economy to further their socialist beliefs--at our expense.

For evidence supporting my charge against Obama, read an article written at American Thinker from September, 2008:

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

“America waits with bated breath while Washington struggles to bring the U.S. economy back from the brink of disaster. But many of those same politicians caused the crisis, and if left to their own devices will do so again.

Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama's connections to his radical mentors -- Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks.org have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama's radical connections since the beginning.

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.

But even this doesn't fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis

In an earlier post, I noted the liberal record of unmitigated legislative disasters, the latest of which is now being played out in the financial markets before our eyes. Before the 1994 Republican takeover, Democrats had sixty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress - with substantial majorities most of the time. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?


One of two things must be true. Either the Democrats are unfathomable idiots, who ignorantly pursue ever more destructive policies despite decades of contrary evidence, or they understand the consequences of their actions and relentlessly carry on anyway because they somehow benefit.

I submit to you they understand the consequences. For many it is simply a practical matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job. But for others, the goal is more malevolent - the failure is deliberate. Don't laugh. This method not only has its proponents, it has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy.

The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:

'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.'

Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer [and Hillary Clinton mentor] Saul Alinsky:

'"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. (Courtesy Discover the Networks.org'

Worldview Matters With Brannon Howse

Topic: Barack Obama is Destroying Our Economy on Purpose


A pair of radical Columbia University professors by the name of Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven wrote an article in the radical magazine known as The Nation. The article was published on May 2, 1966 and laid out what is now known as the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy‘. The plan calls for the destruction of capitalism in America by swelling the welfare rolls to the point of collapsing our economy and then implementing socialism by nationalizing many private institutions. Cloward and Piven studied Saul Alinsky just like Hillary Clinton and President Obama. Listen as Brannon Howse and his guest James Simpson explain how Cloward and Piven inspired the creation of ACORN that Obama worked for as a community organizer. This interview must be e-mailed all over the country. Americans must awaken and understand the goal of these radicals and what is to come if they succeed. Time is of the essence. Obama is not over his head as some have claimed, he knows exactly what he is doing. Understand the Cloward-Piven Strategy, the rules of Saul Alinsky, and their Cultural Marxist worldview and you will understand what is occurring in America is not by mistake."

This is lengthy, but oh, so enlightening. Please, please take the time to listen, perhaps while cooking or exercising.

If the American people knew the real Barack Obama, he would have been soundly defeated in the presidential election.
