The Grand Plan

***Here is a short description of the Cloward-Piven strategy. I truly believe this is what the leftists in this country, led by Barack Obama, are attempting to do.

The flood of immigrants at our borders today is neither an accident nor a surprise. It is an extension of the Cloward-Piven Strategy – the goal of which has been known for 50 years.
In a 1966 article in Nation, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, sociology professors at Columbia University, wrote that capitalism should be collapsed by overloading the government with financial demands that could not be met.
The strategy is to collapse the financial system. The tactic is chaos. If a crisis does not exist, create one. The more chaos the better. The solution is always couched in empathetic words like “fair,” “equal,” “humane” and “just.”

Sound familiar? Chaos, unrest, "equality," etc.? Obama and his acolytes are also happy followers of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.

Politics is all about power relations, but to advance one’s power, one must couch one’s positions in the language of morality. Community organizers are “political realists” who “see the world as it is: an arena of power politics moved primarily by perceived immediate self-interests, where morality is rhetorical rationale for expedient action and self-interest”

Change is brought about through relentless agitation and “trouble making” of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.  
Since both the middle and upper classes have none of the organizer’s passion for radical change, he must do his best to “stir up dissatisfaction and discontent [.]”  He must “agitate to the point of conflict.”  The organizer “dramatizes…injustices” and engages in “‘trouble making’ by stirring up” just those “angers, frustrations, and resentments” (117) that will eventuate in the “disorganization of the old and organization of the new” (116 emphasis original).  He is determined to give rise to as much “confusion” and “fear” as possible (127).

There can be no conversation between the organizer and his opponents.  The latter must be depicted as being evil.
If his compulsion to “agitate” makes it sound as if the organizer is disinclined to converse with those with whom he disagrees, that is because, well, he is. Alinsky is blunt on this point: “You don’t communicate with anyone purely on the rational facts or ethics of an issue” (89).    It is true that “moral rationalization is indispensable,” (43) that the organizer must “clothe” one’s goals and strategies with “moral arguments” (36). But there can be no conversation with one’s opponents, for to converse with them is to humanize them.

That's only three points in his book, but you get the gist. Does the above not perfectly describe what Obama and his liberal buddies are doing to this country?  I don't see how anyone can deny it with a straight face.

We have to resist, and refuse to allow them to continue to destroy this country. I fervently hope some elected Republicans get their heads out of the sand and realize that the country is more important than their political ambitions and their fear of being labeled as racists, bigots, intolerant, blah blah blah. None of those words even mean anything any more. They are thrown about by liberals who have no ideas, therefore they use words to try to silence their opponents lest they be shown as the empty suits they are. I keep praying that the GOP will rise up before it's too late.

***Hillary hires illegal immigrant "Dreamer." Does anyone else see the irony here? Rather than deport the ILLEGAL immigrant, she is given a high paying post in a presidential campaign. We're doomed. Come on, Hispanics. Don't you know when you're being manipulated and exploited?

***The once great Boy Scouts of America is banning water gun fights. That's right, water guns. Because "pointing a firearm is not kind." Where to begin...??

The Boy Scouts of America, an organization with semi-military origins, has put out approved activities for its members, and water gun fights are strictly prohibited.
A blog for the organization’s leaders said May 6 that pointing simulated firearms at people is not allowed.
“Why the rule? A Scouter once told me this explanation I liked quite a bit: A Scout is kind. What part of pointing a firearm [simulated or otherwise] at someone is kind?” said Bryan Wendell on the scouting website.

 Get your boys into the alternative, Trail Life USA. I say that with a heavy heart, because my son is an Eagle Scout. There wasn't any of this nonsense back then.

Six years before he died in a car crash, Daniel W. Quinlan was among the 138 World War I veterans to receive the first Purple Heart medals issued by the U.S. military. His family lost track of the medal he received during a 1932 ceremony held at the Hudson Valley historic site, where historians say Gen. George Washington issued a precursor to the Purple Heart, which is awarded to those wounded or killed in combat. This week, Quinlan's recently found Purple Heart will be displayed at the site before it's draped across his nearby gravestone. Afterward, the medal will be sent to his grandson in Florida.
"It going to be amazing when I put my hands on that medal, to think that my grandfather actually held it in his hands," said William Quinlan, a 58-year-old real estate broker in Key West.

Great story.
