As many have suggested, and I agree with, the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, was never about providing healthcare for the so-called underprivileged or insuring those with uninsurable conditions. Obamacare has always been about collapsing the system so that it can be replaced with a State controlled and centralized one, thus consolidating more power, more wealth and more control to the top 1% of politicians, crony corporations and the aristocracy. However, Obamacare is just one front line skirmish on the battlefield of a sixty year war that is laying the foundation for our final collapse.
The sounds of distant thunder in alternative media have provided many links over the past month to quotes of politicians soft balling to The People the concept of switching to a single-payer system if Obamacare doesn’t work. As seen in Jurassic Park, the political Raptors are testing the fences. They need to get us warmed up to the idea so we don’t find it repulsive upon suggestion, the typical ‘boiling the frog’ tactic. The latest political pitch man to heat the water and test those fences is Colin Powell, who last warmed up in the bull pen as the Bush Administration’s favorite “believable” lap dog that convinced many fence sitting Americans to invade Iraq after his WMD presentation on national television. I guess all administrations have decided to trot out Powell as their pinch hitter like he was Santa Clause, someone everyone just has to believe in. Fool me once, shame on – shame on you. Fool me – you can’t get fooled again.
Aside from Colin Clause, we must understand that Obamacare was designed from the outset to be a failure, so when it inevitably does fail, The People will demand a change, and that change will be presented to The People, by the Government, as the Government-run single payer system, a nationalized State monopoly over your life, and The People will applaud their own destruction as they accept it wholesale. The People will line up to buy an even more citrusy used car from the same used car salesman that sold them their last lemon.
We need to understand why Obama, and our Government as a whole, have been pursuing a system for the past six decades that will inevitably lead to a collapse, not just of the healthcare insurance system, but of the entire financial and economic system. Healthcare is just a strategically large Jenga block within the teetering tower of the entire economy and Republic form of Government.
To understand why our Government, and Obama specifically is pursuing this agenda, we need look no further than where, and most importantly what, Obama was studying and then taught to others at the University of Chicago. That fact that these facts remained suppressed from The People by the major media outlets during the 2008 election cycle should tell you all you need to know about our media, and who it answers to. Obama was a student, and then a teacher, of the work of Saul Alinsky, who is best known for his book, “Rules for Radicals.”
Text in [ ] is mine…
The late Harvard Professor Saul Alinsky wrote that the key to weaken—then take over America, its economy and its people—is to “destroy the middle class.” Alinsky advocated use of class warfare [Remember Obama, “When did they (the wealthy) decide that selfishness was a virtue?”] and race warfare [Remember Obama, “Trayvon Martin could have been me”]. Alinsky believed that “wealth redistribution,” taking from those who work and giving it to those who don’t, is the catalyst to bring down the U.S. economy and free-market capitalism [Remember Obama, “There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses — now is not that time”]. After four years in office, Obama is well on his way to doing just that. Alinsky’s socialist guidebook is embedded in Obama’s record of economic policies that he has visited upon all Americans and their families—specifically the “middle class.”
Though Alinsky died before Obama could make it into his classroom, an Investor Business Daily editorial traces Obama’s affair with Alinsky’s radical ideology: “Obama first learned Alinsky’s rules in the 1980s, when Alinskyite radicals with the Chicago-based Alinsky group Gamaliel Foundation recruited, hired, trained and paid [Obama] as a community organizer in South Side Chicago In 1988, Obama even wrote a chapter for the book “After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois,” …he traveled to Los Angeles for eight days of intense training at Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation. In turn, he trained other community organizers in Alinsky agitation tactics. Obama also taught Alinsky’s “Power Analysis” methods at the University of Chicago.
Alinsky had a genius mind who understood along with the self-admitted socialist author of The Jungle Upton Sinclair and the Italian politician and philosopher Machiavelli, that a direct assault on a Republic was doomed to fail. As Machiavelli made clear in The Prince, once The People have tasted pure freedom, they will fight to the last man to prevent losing it, however those who live entire generations under oppression, care not who their oppressor is, since changes to the sign over the door do little to alter the only way of life they have ever known. Socialism cannot win against a Republic in an overt frontal assault, it must be undermined.
Upton Sinclair clearly understood Americans and The Republic in a letter he wrote in 1951 to the then President of the Socialist Party that stated, “The American People will take Socialism, but they won’t take the title,” and that the enemies of socialism must be, “outflanked.” Clearly the message is that socialist ideologues must simply avoid using the word socialism while they simultaneously undermine the Republic by replacing its very foundation with the planks of socialism, but by other names. To do this, the political, judicial and educational infrastructure must be infiltrated from within, from the bottom up, and that takes time.
When Upton Sinclair ran for office as an official socialist in California, he garnered some 60,000 votes, but when he ran again without the socialist tag, using instead the campaign slogan EPIC, “End Poverty in California,” he earned over 879,000 votes and the realization that America can, in fact, be converted to socialism, using alternative means. If you consider the Democrat platform, and much of the Republican one, you will see how well the socialist planks are represented, albeit by other names.
Alinsky believed that radicals desiring to deconstruct a Republic must nudge The People and the Republic Government in such a way as to establish a reformation and it was understood that this takes time, even a generation or two. As Alinksy describes;
“A reformation means that the masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don’t know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless. They won’t act for change but won’t strongly oppose those who do. The time is then ripe for revolution.”
The socialist ideologue Democrats over the past 60 years have slowly moved The People into disillusionment with past ways and values. The People don’t know what will work, but feel defeated, frustrated and hopeless. They won’t act for change, but they won’t oppose those who do. Then came Obama, with both HOPE and CHANGE. Obama is simply overseeing the final stages of the collapse, based on sixty years of Revolution.
Alinsky’s brand of revolution was not characterized by dramatic, sweeping, overnight transformations of social institutions. As Richard Poe puts it, “Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches [Think Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s Pastor], unions and political parties.” He advised organizers and their disciples to quietly, subtly gain influence within the decision-making ranks of these institutions, and to introduce changes from that platform. This was precisely the tactic of “infiltration” advocated by Lenin and Stalin.
The Government and socialist ideologues have achieved this Revolution over the past 60 years by infiltrating the labor unions, the media, our universities and the political infrastructure, specifically the Democrat Party (and the Republican Party) which has allowed them to undermine the engine of The Republic; the free market. As Government regulations have exponentially grown over the past 60 years, capitalism has suffered, and with it businesses and the employees they hire which are The People, i.e. the middle class, and the middle class is the target, as outlined by Alinsky. If the middle classes are made to suffer enough economically, and if their education is subverted sufficiently so they know not from what poisoned source there suffering percolates from, they will eventually settle into a mood of hopelessness, with an ignorance that promotes a lack of action from which they can then be quietly coerced into sublime submission as the socialist hand of “salvation” reaches down into that dank oppressive quicksand they find themselves in, fully unaware that it was that same hand that pushed them in.
Government regulations are a useful tool to destroy the middle class as they act like a wet blanket on business growth, expansion, research and development, innovation and entrepreneurship. On yesterday’s Peter Schiff Show the Journal of Economic Growth was cited showing us just how much we have lost from Government regulation, which of course is then blamed by the Government on Capitalism and the Free Market, followed up by the greasy sales pitch that more Government, more regulation, more control, and more freedom destroying anti-constitutionalism are the only solutions until inevitably the engine is completely destroyed and collapses in on itself. In this way The People’s anger at the precarious position they find themselves in, is expertly deflected away from its Government source, by the Government, onto the Government’s enemy, the free market and capitalism.
The growth of federal regulations over the past six decades has cut U.S. economic growth by an average of 2 percentage points per year, according to a new study in the Journal of Economic Growth. As a result, the average American household receives about $277,000 less annually than it would have gotten in the absence of six decades of accumulated regulations—a median household income of $330,000 instead of the $53,000 we get now.
As a result of this over-regulation, much suffering has been brought to The People in the form of job losses, a tight job market, lower wages, the elimination of bonuses and other benefits, a pittance of salary increases every year, delayed advancement, etc… This over-regulation also includes forcing health insurance companies to provide services that most Americans don’t want, or need, but must pay higher premiums for. In these cases, Government blames The People’s pain on the insurance companies themselves, on capitalism, and not on the unnecessary regulations the Government foisted upon the insurance companies in the first place.
Add to this suffering the ideological saturation of The People by the State anointed propaganda machine that we call the media by re-educating the masses that the root cause of all this suffering are the evil capitalists, the wealthy, the 1% and the businessmen. Then add the Morlock inspired decline of society through its panem et circenses narcissism where the most critical concerns of everyone’s day are posting selfies, and really cool latte art. Facebook, Instagram, etc… are the modern equivalents of Narcissus staring at his own reflection.
Lastly add the rapidly expanding welfare state which feeds upon this moral decline as single mothers, the incompetent, the lazy and the fraudulent increase in number as more Government social programs are created to support them and thus those dependent on the State who have no incentive, or even moral inclination, to achieve self-sufficiency especially when they view our own Government, as many of us do, as a cabal of law breaking aristocratic money and power hungry elitists. When “they” are busy breaking the law to “get theirs,” then we accept this lowered moral bar as an excuse for us to “get ours.” When you combine these four aspects of modern society, The People are ripe to fall to their knees, burn the Constitution and submit to every Government promise of hope and change, and the dog chains they come with.
Thanks to sixty years of infiltration by the ideological socialists in politics, our economy, the media and our schools, The People are now in a position where they are too ignorant, too dependent on the State, too confused and too financially and morally bankrupt to know, or even resist, or even know enough to resist, the final collapse of The Republic around them, and with it their physical and financial freedoms. Thus, Alinsky’s teachings to Obama, and what Obama taught others on how to collapse the system, also known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy, are in the final stages of execution…
In Breaking the System, David Horowitz and Liz Blane explain how Obama is using the Cloward-Piven Strategy to continuously manufacture crises of which he can take advantage, and to advance his agenda. Obama’s plan, “…is the product of a calculated strategy by the radical Left to subvert America’s free-enterprise system and to turn the country’s citizens into wards of an always-growing state whose ultimate objective is to engineer American lives. Specifically, Obama’s policies reflect the strategy developed by two leftist professors, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, in the mid-1960s to manufacture crises that will fracture our social and cultural institutions and pave the way for a socialist redistribution of wealth and control over every aspect of individual endeavor.
From Greene Opinion, we learn, “In an August 31, 2008 letter to the Editor of the Boston Globe, Saul Alinsky’s son, David, said “Obama learned his lesson well” and that David was proud “to see my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully.” “No doubt Obama was a fan of the Alinsky model and method. He said so himself in his book Dreams from my Father.” “In a New York Post article published September 8, 2008 is says: Obama adopted the big government ethos that prevails among neighborhood organizers, who view attempts to reform poverty programs as attacks on the poor…He also derided the “old individualistic boot strap myth” of achievement that conservatives were touting and called self-help strategies for the poor “thinly veiled excuses for cutting back on social programs.”
Have you ever considered where all the “official” Socialists have gone? The official Socialist Party in the United States was founded in 1901, and dissolved in Dec, 1972 after 71 years of limited progress, only to be replaced by the Social Democrat Party in Dec, 1972. They’re still here. You can drop in on their offices if you ever visit the Pittsburgh area. Or you can visit the Socialist Party USA website where Brian Moore, a Democrat from California, was nominated to run in the 2008 Presidential election on the official Socialist ticket. The Socialists did not simply pack up and leave the country, they are still among us, albeit by other names.
So consider what other name, or party, is a socialist’s most strategic and logical choice if they want to respect the lessons learned from Alinsky, Sinclair and Machiavelli on how to win? Where the Republicans have RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only), the Democrats have DINO’s, and they have infiltrated and saturated the party. If you accept that as a real possibility, or an actuality as I posit here, what then does that mean for how you think about the Democrat Party, and their almost indistinguishable Republican cousins, and therefore our Government as a whole? Should you not be intensely concerned, to the point of panic, on what that means for the future of our country, and for our children? And lastly, why are you not acting on this knowledge?
As of 2008, there were 70 Congressional Democrats and 11 members of the Judiciary Committee who were officially registered with the Socialist Party of America, that’s 13% of the politicians who pass our laws registered as actual, honest to God, Socialists. Knowing that 13% of Congress are official Socialists, and that to win on any particular piece of legislation they need only convince 38% more of Congress to vote with them for majority control, and that Obama studied and then educated University students on the Saul Alinksy tactics of agitation, power and Government subversion, that even Upton Sinclair pointed out the need to be covert in their operations to subvert a Republic, which Machiavelli clearly stated could not be taken down with a frontal assault to which Upton Sinclair reiterated the need to “outflank” their enemies, and the past 60 years of legislative implementation by both “Republicans” and “Democrats” of all the major socialist planks of fiscal, societal and educational reform…can the truth really be any more obvious?
Will Americans really wait until an official socialist, running on an official socialist ticket wins the Presidential election before they concede that their country has become, in fact, entirely socialist and that their freedoms under a Republic, and the Constitution of the United States have been gutted and destroyed? Is that what it will take for Americans to finally wake up to the progressive fire burning everything down around them, when it’s too late to act peaceably and only violence will free them from their new masters?
My Patriots. Where the hell are you? It’s time to wake up, and act.
