Democrats’ Openly Alinsky Tactics Are Destroying America
The Revolutionary Act ^ | 01/27/20

Posted on 01/27/2020 2:46:43 PM PST by Liberty7732

Don’t look now, but the Democrats are about to self-destruct. I wouldn’t mind that so much, really, except they’ll take our entire country down with them. This is not a new phenomenon. The Plan has been decades in the making.

In the sixties, a little-known couple wrote a series of strategy papers that were intentionally designed to transform America into a socialist country. Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven (aka Cloward-Piven) have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. They called the first of their papers, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty”. The Plan: to overwhelm our welfare systems by flooding them with new recipients, in need or not. Its stated end goal was to create enough chaos that would necessitate a “guaranteed annual income” for all. That means that even those who don’t work would “earn” a living. Democratic Socialists have been demanding this for years. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has recently signaled her approval of a similar “Universal Basic Income” plan. Under former President Barack Obama, our welfare rolls and food stamp recipients swelled. Our country was headed for certain bankruptcy. All was part of The Plan.

In my book, Rules for Deplorables: A Primer for Fighting Radical Socialism, I noted that this wasn’t Cloward-Pivens’ only scheme to create chaos in our country and destroy our foundational systems.

In 1982, they devised a similar plot for overwhelming our voter rolls. It was called “‘A Movement Strategy to Transform the Democratic Party,’… ‘They sought to do to the voting system what they had previously done to the welfare system…[f]lood the polls with millions of new voters…The result would be a catastrophic disruption of America’s electoral system, the authors predicted.’” (Rules For Deplorables, pg. 236) Not surprisingly, today’s Democratic Socialists are calling for an end to the Electoral College. That would clearly swing votes in their favor for decades to come.

That Cloward-Piven “movement led to the so-called Motor-Voter law, which President Bill Clinton ultimately signed in 1993 … eliminate[ing] many controls on voter fraud, making it easy for voters to register but difficult to determine the validity of new registrations.” (Rules For Deplorables, pg. 238)

Cloward-Piven “predicted that ‘the flood of new voters would provoke a backlash from Democrats and Republicans alike, who would join forces to disenfranchise the unruly hordes, using such expedients as purging invalid voters from the rolls, imposing cumbersome registration procedures, stiffening residency requirements, and so forth.’ What Cloward-Piven had not predicted was that Democrats would join the evil plan in their own self-interest. That really changed the game.” (Rules For Radicals, pg. 237) Today it’s the Republicans who are actively fighting to keep our elections fair.

While Cloward-Piven wrote the blueprint for creating the chaos needed to transform America into socialism, with help from the Democrats, it was the father of community organizing, Saul Alinsky, who provided the means. In his 1970s blockbuster book, Rules for Radicals, he outlined thirteen tactics to help the left realize their goal. Rules for Deplorables is the counterbalance to Alinsky’s book. Each chapter highlights one Alinsky tactic. The use of current events, as manipulated by each tactic, gives the reader perspective.

There is no better example to explain the multiple hoaxes perpetrated against President Donald J. Trump than Alinsky Tactic #13: “pick a target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it”. Since his election in 2016, Trump has become the left’s favorite “target” simply because he loves our Constitution, understands it’s under attack, and wants to preserve it.

Over the past three years we have witnessed the attempted coup of the 45th President of the United States of America … a takeover of our government by a disgruntled minority unhappy with the results of a fair, democratic election. Whichever political party one subscribes to, this should be alarming to us all. Incredibly, it’s not.

The travesty of Trump’s treatment as President is a culmination of years of complicit partnering between the far left socialists and the Democratic Party. They no longer even hide self-identifying as Socialists. There is no turning back for them. They’ve spent decades tearing down our country’s moral fiber. Obama nearly succeeded in completely transforming America from its originally-intended Republic to a down-sized, socialistic version. We were well on our way to Third World status in a globalist world, until Trump came along. The left will not give up those gains without a fight. To them, this is war. Our duly-elected President is simply collateral damage. Alinsky taught that, when the stakes are high, one must fight by using any means necessary. Ethics be damned. The left and the Democratic Party have proven they are strong adherents to that ideology in their attacks against Trump. Republicans can no longer win by playing with the old “kinder, gentler, more compassionate” rules of politics.

Had Ted Cruz won in 2016 — or Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, or even Jeb Bush — he would have become the left’s “target”. No one would have stood up to the Democrat Left like President Trump has. We should be grateful for that. “Freezing” Trump in the spotlight for continuous bashing would have been anyone else’s fate, too, had they gotten in the way of The Plan. “Personalizing” Trump as a racist, xenophobe, homophobe, liar, obstructionist, sexist, etc., would have extended to the others, as well, had they been elected instead. And, if anyone believes the other candidates would not have been attacked as ferociously as Trump has been, they don’t understand the left and Alinsky tactics.

The final directive of Alinsky’s thirteenth tactic is the one that will determine the ultimate outcome of the impeachment vote. By “polarizing” Trump, the Democratic Left hopes to separate him from his own base, Independents and moderate Democrats who supported him in 2016. If successful, and a Democrat should win the 2020 election, our country will very likely not recover for generations to come. Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski, take note.

What we have been subjected to every day for the past three years has nothing to do with illegal activity on the part of our President. It’s all been an Alinsky sideshow to distract from the egregiously criminal wrong-doings by Democrats.

There was no Trump-Russia collusion, as the two-year Mueller investigation reported. Just as there was no evidence of wrongdoing in the Ukrainian phone call. Certainly nothing that deserves impeachment. On the other hand, illegal spying, fake documents, unlawful leaking, blatant lies, outright treason, manufactured whistleblowers, and real Ukrainian bribery have all been perpetrated by Democrats. They must be held accountable if our country is to survive.

The Democrat Left creates complicated sideshows, like the Trump-Russia fiasco and the impeachment scam, to keep the spotlight on Trump. It’s a way to deflect from their own criminal acts that damage our country while enriching themselves.

Alinsky Tactic Number 3 gives them the perfect cover: “whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.” In other words, the more convoluted the sideshow, the less likely Americans are to follow. They’re right about that.

As socialists begin their power grabs, their message is always one of inclusion for the “common good” or “social justice.” Once they gain power, all that changes.

When America’s Democratic Socialists achieve power in perpetuity (the ultimate prize for all socialists), the glorified version of socialism they disingenuously promoted, will end. Moderate Democrats will be phased out of the Party. The Supreme Court will be flooded with leftists, as has already been proposed. Our Constitution will be diluted. Guns will be confiscated. Conservatives will be silenced, re-educated or imprisoned. The majority will no longer have a voice. And, our country will not recover during our lifetimes.

If you don’t believe me, just ask someone from Venezuela, the once-richest country in Latin America. In just twelve years after electing their “Democratic Socialist” President Hugo Chavez in 1999, that’s exactly what happened to them. Today they are the poorest, with little sign of recovery. The once-promised Medicare for all has morphed into abandoned, empty hospitals without electricity or medical staff to run them. Private industry, confiscated by the government, no longer produces needed items for mere survival. Store shelves are bare. Clean water is rare. Toilet paper is non-existent. The once-thriving oil producers have been driven into the ground by greedy bureaucrats. If you think that can’t happen here, you are wrong. We can be silent no more.

The impeachment plot has nothing to do with Trump’s guilt or innocence. It has everything to do with the destruction of America the way the Founding Fathers intended it to be.

Think about that the next time you tell somebody you wish Trump wouldn’t act so “un-presidential”. Or, tweet so much. That is exactly how the left is trying to make you react. Don’t fall for it. Stop blaming Trump for the made-up accusations against him. Every time you do, you diminish Trump’s power and embolden the left. If we “polarize” ourselves from this President because of the left’s manipulative tactics, there will be no one left to save us.

America, today, is a country deeply divided by two opposing views. Those who understand what’s at stake, and those who don’t. We who do, stand 100% behind Trump. If you are one who believes socialism will never happen in our country, wake up. The signs are all around us and approaching fast. This is not the time to waiver. There is no reason for division. No place for blame. No room for mistakes. It’s time to take a stand and fight for America, before it’s too late.

The 2020 election is between Trump and Socialism. That simple.

Democrats Successfully Pull off a Sleight of Hand Trick on America

The current Impeachment of POTUS Donald J. Trump, was never about impeaching POTUS Trump, albeit, the Democrats want such action to occur. No, this is a sleight of hand by the Democrats. As the impeachment trial occurs in the Senate, no other legislation or other business is conducted by the Senate. What does this mean? Let’s look at something that happened in the final year of the previous President. In February 2016 WaPo ran with the headline

“Republicans vow no hearings and no votes for Obama’s Supreme Court pick”

So we see in 2016 the Republicans would not and did not have any hearings for then sitting President Obama. Thus denying Democrats from appointing a leftist pick to the SCOTUS. The Republicans did say they would do so after the Presidential election, no matter who was elected as President. This is another among a long list of reasons why “elections have consequences” and why the Democrats are so hell bent on over turning the 2016 election results and have been set on interfering with the 2020 elections.

As of January 26. 2020 President Donald J. Trump has had the US Senate confirm 187 Article III Federal Justices. This list includes

2 Associate Justices of the Supreme Court
50 Justices for the United States Court of Appeals
133 Justices for the United States District Courts
2 Judges for United States Court of International Trade

There are 18 nominations to Article III courts awaiting Senate action, including:

1 Justice for the United States Court of Appeals
16 Justices for the United States District Courts
1 Justice for the United States Court of International Trade

In terms of Article I courts, as of January 9, 2020, the Senate has confirmed 15 judges nominated by Trump, including

5 for the United States Court of Federal Claims,
4 for the United States Tax Court,
4 for the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims,
1 for the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, and
1 for the United States Court of Military Commission Review.

There are currently 8 nominations to Article I courts awaiting Senate action, including

3 for the United States Court of Federal Claims and
3 for the Tax Court and 2 for the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

There are currently

6 vacancies on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims,
4 on the U.S. Tax Court, 2 on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims,
0 on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Services, and
0 on the U.S. Court of Military Commission Review.

Trump designated Susan G. Braden and Margaret M. Sweeney as chief judges of the Court of Federal Claims. There is currently 1 nomination to an Article IV court awaiting Senate action. In terms of Article IV territorial courts, as of January 3, 2020, Trump has not made any appointments or elevated any judges to the position of chief judge.

Knowing that POTUS Trump has fundamentally transformed and is in the process of changing the biases of the court either towards a neutral or more right leaning court, the Democrats had to do something with the most utmost urgence.

A second reason tied to this is the fact the Senate was not turned over during the midterm elections. Instead, not only was the Senate house not turned over, the Democrats lost seats during the midterm election giving the republicans the majority power to break any procedure that required 51 votes to break or pass. A tie-in here is that Democrats have chided that McConnell has held up and continues to tie up legislation but there is precedence as the The Hill stated, “House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told “Fox News Sunday” in June 2014 that then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was responsible for holding up 240 House bills. ‘The Senate has not moved anything. They never send something to the president’s desk. So, how do you even negotiate with the president if he doesn’t have the bill on his desk?’ he said at the time. The Hill further went on to explain in their 2016 article, “At the height of criticism from the House, The Washington Post broke down the number of House bills that have been stuck in the Senate for every Congress since 1975.”

One other reason related to the transformation of the courts is the SCOTUS seat of the Honorable Ruth Bader-Ginsberg. Should RBG leave the SCOTUS at this time, POTUS would have the inevitable duty to nominate a replacement. Trump does have a list of potential replacements. RBG has said she would not leave the SCOTUS while a Republican was in office. Thus far she has held up to her word, although her health is slowly waning and has given many of our brethren on the left many scares.

Since the Democrats could not get their way in the Senate of the United States of America, the Democrats chose to weaponize the MOAB of the Constitution of the United States, impeachment. This is the final rationale behind why Impeachment was passed in December 2019, after 78 days of procedural ramblings. Today (January 27, 2020) Ken Star took the Senate through what he called the “Age of Impeachment” and in his argument to the Senate members clearly stated that Impeachment had been weaponized. Now we know the rest of the story....

When you see the rationale behind why the Democrats hurriedly pushed impeachment in the House, you will then understand why Senators on the left are now calling for witnesses. This has not been lost on the likes of Schumer. The outcome of this impeachment is almost a forgone conclusion. All witnesses should have been declared in the discovery phase of Impeachment which is given by sole authority to the House of Representatives. When the House sends over the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, it is the recommendation upon the due diligence of the House of Rep’s Investigation. The Senate Trial is not a normal trial as we know trial’s to be held in the Judicial branch of the United States. Dues Process is still held up by all in this process. Here the House sends to the Senate their Prosecutors and the President sends their defense team. The two present their arguments for the Articles based on the findings from the House. Witnesses that are called during an impeachment trial are typically only the ones that were called during the Impeachment Inquiry which occurs in the House of Representatives. Calling forth new witnesses to which the House has not deposed onto the Senate floor will only extend this trial for an indeterminate period of time. What this accomplishes is not the removal of the President, rather this accomplishes the Senate from conducting their business of the day such as working on the list of confirming Judicial nominations.

The House did not mess up in their investigation. This was the plan all along. Bring forth enough witnesses to placate the Articles of Impeachment then to have the Senate call for new witnesses into the Impeachment Trial. Thus in the end the Senate would be prevented from conducting business such as Judicial Confirmations.

This leads up to why the insides of Bolton’s book was released on timely basis. If we look at how Kavanaugh’s Confirmation process and the leaks of information during that process we see a determined pattern of release of information. This same SOP is being conducted during the Impeachment Trial. The content of the leak only matters towards satisfying the outcome of what is considered the behavior needed by those needing the leak to happen. Once the behavior sought is then obtained, the content is usually a disappointment or a as someone aptly said, “a nothingburger”. Bolton is being used by the left and his anger towards his let go by Trump has made him a blind and willing participant in this scheme.

Some will say this is coup d’etat and in a sense it is a legal one but after an illegal attempt failed. The reason for this is can be seen in the previous thread in which the POTUS Trump is changing the makeup of the Judicial Branch. This is and was one of his platforms he ran upon. By changing the makeup of the Courts, the privileges once ensconced by the left seeking to create law through adjudication has been dealt a serious blow for at least a couple of decades. For example, the Ninth Circuit Court was a common court sough out by the Left to get a favorable opinion. Although the Court still has more left-leaning judges than right-leaning, the opportunity to get a right-leaning judge on the docket has exponentially increased.

So you can see here that removing Trump has far more implications as to the reasons why they want to remove him than just some snowflake has been triggered by a red hat or a MAGA slogan. The implications lie within their Constitutional and political makeup of this country. the left seeks to destroy the Constitution, and yet might accomplish this through the education system of our children with programs like Kommon Kore, safe spaces, lack of First Amendment protections afforded to these students, etc. I could go on and on, not because of right wing politics but because of Constitutional infringements that are being perpetrated daily by members on both sides of the aisle.

Something to think about, in the United States of America most people live in the culture of “I want it now or none at all” when it takes a series of steps to accomplish some goals. Research was done on how easy a negative thought was accepted and then how long it took to correct versus a negative one. A negative thought is 6 times more easy to 1) be believable and 2) be accepted than a positive one. It was 6 times harder to get rid of a negative than a positive one. This is why our culture is negative based or is called the Negative Nanny state.

Bulls#it. America is stronger than ever, thanks to President Trump, and as for Alinsky’s methods, Trump applies them for our side every day, and in virtually every tweet.

The author should give himself an uppercut for not knowing what he’s talking about.

They had already successfully used Alinsky tactics to get an ineligible Kenyan from Indonesia into the White House in violation of the Constitution.

The GOP went along with it because they had ineligible candidates they wanted to run, Jindal, Haley, Cruz, Rubio and George P. Bush.

President Trump has defeated Rule #13 by some miracle.

Chris Matthews long ago confirmed they play by Alinsky’s rules and Queen Hillary learned them first hand from the Satanic master.

Yes the country is headed to the dissolution of our existing government but is our existing government what the founders had in mind? I encourage the overuse of government largess to hasten it’s dissolution with the thought that it is a 50/50 proposition that we either come out as a bigger nanny state such as the Bernites want or return to a state’s rights favoring limited constitutional federal government.

“Birther” worked like a charm, they got Americans to reject one of the most important safeguards bequeathed to us by the founders, the natural born citizen requirement that only someone who was solely an American with no possibility
of being anything else would ever be Commander in Chief.

People born with divided citizenship are precisely who the founders were excluding as evidenced by John Jay’s letter to Washington.

Extremely gullible people think there is something economists for generations have called the “free lunch”. There is no free lunch and the more people who think there is a free lunch, the more likely society will crumble.

These people also vote democrat.
