  • Conservatives Must Focus on Defeating The Alinsky Democrats

    It is a sad truth of our current societal situation that those on the left wing of the political spectrum no longer possess the ability to argue political issues based on anything resembling facts or logic. I used to say that they no longer desire to do so, but it has become abundantly clear over the last decade that progressives simply no longer have the ability. The left abandoned any effort to really debate issues at the outset of the Bill Clinton presidency, as the Clintons brought their Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tactics to the White House. Those rules...

    KrisAnne Hall, strict-constructionist constitutional lawyer, educator, Tea Party activist, and author, was this month's guest on C-Span2's "In-Depth" this afternoon. The program, three hours long, will be repeated tonight at midnight EDT. She responds to questions and comments from the program moderator and from viewers on her life and works. The titles of several of her books - Bedtime Stories for Budding Patriots and Not a Living Breathing Document: Reclaiming the Constitution tells much about her philosophy and teaching. Equally interesting is the story of her life, going from her childhood in a Democrat household where "the only thing more...
  • Alinsky's Rules For Freepers - #5

    Watching President Trump use his own version of Alinsky's Rules to get under the skin of the Republican Establishment, the Media and the Left I thought it would be a fun exercise to take each of the Rules and have my fellow Freepers try to design strategies to put each in place. This first one, #5, says: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. In order to do that properly we should take the lead from President Trump's campaign...

    The purpose of Rules for Radicals is to encourage and guide revolutionaries in their quest to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. Where Machiavelli’s The Prince was written for the Haves on how to hold on to power, Alinsky’s Rules was for the Have-Nots on how to take it away. Mass organizations are to seize power and give it to the people. Only then, wrote Alinsky, can the people realize democracy, equality, justice, peace, education, useful employment, health, and “those circumstances” and values which give meaning to life. Yikes. Since change is...

    Subtitle: Alinsky Lives. Don’t look for fundamental principles in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. You won’t find them. In her 1969 college thesis, Hillary admitted frustration in trying to make sense of his inconsistencies. So, as the title implies, Alinsky doesn’t expound on philosophical nostrums, but rather delivers tactics with which to tear down institutions. The danger of adherence to principles of any sort is that they typically harden into the straightjacket of dogma, and dogma is counter-productive to change. Dogmatic ideology locks its adherents into an unchanging course of thought in a rapidly changing world. Ideology stifles free thought and...

    Two little-known men had enormous influence during America’s runup to revolution. Algernon Sidney (1623-1683) and Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) were students of history and political science. Both advocated revolution when necessary, but toward opposing ends. In his Discourses Concerning Government, Sidney set out lessons learned since Biblical times in the hope that future generations would recognize and reverse emerging threats to free government. He encouraged men to be skeptical of their magistrates and institutions in order to improve them, to prod them always back toward the first principles of the nation. When the admirer of Sidney saw corruption, his first impulse...

    Alinsky Rule #12. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. Tweets from a non-Alinskyite: Tweet from a leftist-Alinskyite:Next up, Kathy Griffin - because she, like Reza, knows who the real victim is here. And who is the real target. Let me just ask you two: What part of covfefe do you not understand? Posted from: MOTUS A.D.
  • Cardinal Bernardin paid for the most important moment of Obama’s Alinskyite education

    The Spectator ^ | May 10, 2017 | George Neumayr
    n the course of researching No Higher Power: Obama’s War on Religious Freedom, I learned that the late Chicago cardinal Joseph Bernardin helped pay for the education of Barack Obama in Saul Alinsky’s ruthless tactics. A forerunner to Pope Francis, Bernardin was a devious socialist who poured the faithful’s money into the pockets of the hard left. No Higher Power contained a copy of the check — a source excavated it from the archives of the archdiocese of Chicago and gave it to me — proving that Bernardin had financed Obama’s trip to a training seminar in California organized by...

    A “Faith Not Fear Summit” held at a Catholic church in the Diocese of San Diego raised fears among some orthodox Catholics that the diocese had been co-opted to promote political liberalism in accord with the views of local Bishop Robert McElroy, named by Pope Francis in 2015 to come down from San Francisco to head this border episcopate.

    Islamic headscarf a shroud of death for a free society,’ says former radical Feminist Zana Ramadani. With her book The Veiled Threat dealing with the plight of Muslim women in Europe, former radical feminist Zana Ramadani has kicked the Islamist hornets’ nest in Germany. Being born a Muslim herself, Ramadani is fearful of her life after receiving countless death threats from radical Muslims in Germany ... Once a darling of the left, Ramadani quickly fell out of favour with German liberals once she started criticising the oppression of women within Islam. Her fellow feminists accused her of being a racist...

    City governments vow to protect even violent predators in defiance of Trump administration. Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned on Monday that sanctuary jurisdictions risked losing federal grants if they persisted in obstructing the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Billions of dollars in federal law enforcement funding are at stake.  “I urge the nation’s states and cities to carefully consider the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,” Attorney General Sessions said. "Countless Americans would be alive today and countless loved ones would not be grieving today if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended." Instead of heeding...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Governor Dannel Malloy will announce help for families worried about President Trump‘s deportation policies. He is calling this a toolkit for families concerned about immigration enforcement. We know Governor Malloy has had his differences with President Trump on the issue of immigration. Now, the Governor plans to outfit concerned families with what he’s calling a toolkit. It sounds like it’s going to be mostly information for families worried about Trump administration immigration enforcement policies. Especially if the worry is that parents or guardians are going to be detained or deported by the federal government. The worry is...

    In 2015 Kate Steinle was gunned down by an illegal alien in San Francisco - a sanctuary city. The man charged with her murder was a seven-time felon who had been deported five times. Five times. There was an immigration hold on the suspect, but San Francisco authorities set the man free. Just a few months later, Miss Steinle would be dead. Kate Steinle's blood is not only on the hands of her killer - but it's also on the hands of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. It's beyond belief that liberal mayors are allowing illegal aliens to run wild...

    Jack Barsky kept his calm as he neared the traffic circle underneath the West Side Highway overpass. In his hand he held a piece of chalk and furtively drew a straight horizontal line on the wall as he walked past. If a pedestrian happened to notice it, they might think it a mark made by a kid, or perhaps nothing it all. But when a certain undercover KGB operative spotted the chalk mark as he drove from his compound in The Bronx to his cover job at the United Nations, he would inform his comrades, and they would know what...

    How do we know that Pope Paul VI consulted with Saul Alinsky? In The Rite of Sodomy Randy Engel wrote that Saul Alinsky met Pope Paul VI while Pope Paul VI was still Archbishop of Milan: “It was said of the new Archbishop of Milan that he didn’t hear church bells, he heard factory whistles. “It is not surprising therefore that on one of his visits to the Archbishop’s residence, Jacques Maritain, the once great Thomastic philosopher, brought with him, Saul David Alinsky, the “Apostle of the Permanent Revolution.” Montini [then Archbishop of Milan, later Pope Paul VI] was so...

    The Obama administration’s top civil rights lawyer announced Thursday she will lead a coalition of civil and human rights organizations at a time when they see the Justice Department softening its focus on a number of their priorities. Vanita Gupta, who was head of the Obama Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, said she will become the new president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights amid an “unprecedented assault on civil rights.” […] During Gupta’s time at the department, the federal government inserted itself in various matters on behalf of transgender people, prisoners and the homeless....
