Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

 

By James Simpson  James Simpson is a former White House  staff economist  and budget analyst.  His writings have been published in American Thinker, Washington Times, FrontPage Magazine, Defense Watch, Soldier of Fortune and others.

 

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 hisDiscover 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?

Why?

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.

TED CRUZ – 6 REASONS TO VOTE FOR TRUMP

September 24th, 2016

 

 


This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.
In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.
I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.
Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.
Six key policy differences inform my decision. First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”
For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.
Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.

NETANYAHU TELLS UN: YOU BEGAN AS A ‘MORAL FORCE’ AND HAVE BECOME A ‘MORAL FARCE’

September 24th, 2016

 

Netanyahu Tells UN: You Began as a ‘Moral Force’ and Have Become a ‘Moral Farce’

The United Nations “began as a moral force and has become a moral farce,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quipped on Thursday in his annual address to the UN General Assembly in New York City.

Nevertheless, Netanyahu predicted, “Israel has a bright future at the UN.”

“Back home, your governments are rapidly changing their attitudes toward Israel,” the prime minister said. “Everything will change, and a lot sooner than you think.”

For First Time, Kuwaiti Delegation Stays to Listen to Israeli PM Speak at UN

In a potential sign that Israel’s ties with the Sunni Arab axis in the Middle East are indeed getting stronger,…

More and more countries — including in Asia, Africa and Latin America — are seeing Israel as a potential partner in “fighting the terrorism of today and developing the technology of tomorrow.”

But the biggest shift, Netanyahu stated, was taking place in the Arab world, where many nations were coming to realize that Israel is an ally, not an enemy.

“Our common enemies are Iran and ISIS,” he said. “Our common goals are security, prosperity and peace.”

PARTY LOYALTY CAN’T MAKE ME VOTE FOR CLINTON

September 23rd, 2016

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Party Loyalty Can’t Make Me Vote for Clinton

A lifelong Democrat, I’m backing Trump because he can shake up our politics and revive the economy.

By Andrew Stein   Mr. Stein, who held elective office in New York between 1969 and 1994, is now a business consultant.

I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Hubert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party.

My father was a pallbearer at St. Patrick’s for Bobby Kennedy’s funeral. When I was young, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedywere (and remain) my political heroes. Four years ago, former New York Gov. and liberal lion Mario Cuomo spoke at my father’s funeral. I think his son, current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is a very effective leader.

I was elected five times to the New York state Assembly as a Democrat. In 1977, I beat David Dinkins and Robert Wagner Jr. in the election for borough president of Manhattan, and then was elected twice as City Council president.

With this background it is very hard for me not to support the Democratic nominee for president this year. But I believe my party has become the party of the elites and moneyed class and has deserted its historic mission as the party of the working class and disadvantaged.

Given my level of discomfort with the current leftist orientation of the Democratic Party, I am now supporting Republican nomineeDonald Trump for president. I urge my fellow Democrats to vote for Mr. Trump. I have known him since the early 1970s and have seen his deep concern for people, and how effective he has been while working on behalf of the average citizen.

IS TRUMP A RACIST OR A BIGOT ?

September 23rd, 2016

 

INDEPENDENT JOURNAL REVIEW

‘Racist’ Trump Not Only Supported Desegregation, He Did Something About It in Palm Beach

Among the ‘favorite’ names Democrats like to call Donald Trump are “bigot” and “racist.” He’s been viciously attacked over support he’s gotten from white supremacist groups — as if he (or any presidential candidate) has control over who supports him and who does not.

To hear Democrats talk, Trump might as well be the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

There’s only one ‘problem.’ According to the Wall Street Journal and Anti-Defamation League, Donald J. Trump is largely responsible for desegregating Florida’s exclusive country clubs.

DIVERSITY IS HISTORY’S PATHWAY TO CHAOS

September 22nd, 2016

 

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Diversity is history’s pathway to chaos

Nations that reject a community are torn apart

 – –

 Victor Davis Hanson is a classicist and historian with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Emphasizing diversity has been the pitfall, not the strength, of nations throughout history.

The Roman Empire worked as long as Iberians, Greeks, Jews, Gauls and myriad other African, Asian and European communities spoke Latin, cherished habeas corpus and saw being Roman as preferable to identifying with their own particular tribe. By the fifth century, diversity had won out but would soon prove a fatal liability.

Rome disintegrated when it became unable to assimilate new influxes of northern European tribes. Newcomers had no intention of giving up their Gothic, Hunnish or Vandal identities.

The propaganda of history’s multicultural empires — the Ottoman, the Russian, the Austro-Hungarian, the British and the Soviet — was never the strength of their diversity. To avoid chaos, their governments bragged about the religious, ideological or royal advantages of unity, not diversity.

Nor did more modern quagmires like Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Rwanda or Yugoslavia boast that they were “diverse.” Instead, their strongman leaders naturally claimed that they shared an all-encompassing commonality.

When such coerced harmony failed, these nations suffered the even worse consequences of diversity, as tribes and sects turned murderously upon each other.

VIDEO – A LEADING BLACK CONSERVATIVE – DEMS CRY ‘RACISM’ TO KEEP BLACKS BRAINWASHED

September 20th, 2016

 

THE DAILY CALLER
VIDEO –  An Interview with Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a former Democrat

Leading Black Conservative: Dems Cry ‘Racism’ To

To Keep Black Americans ‘Brainwashed’ [VIDEO]

Ginni Thomas  September 18, 2016
Contributor
The Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference ended Sunday, and Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a former Democrat who grew up on an Alabama plantation, named the Congressional Black Caucus one of many “race hustlers” that work to “keep black Americans angry and demoralized for power and wealth to themselves.”

“They keep them in a state of anger and confusion so they can use them for their personal gain,” Peterson said. Other named “race hustlers” are President Barack Obama, the NAACP, many black preachers, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and more.

Peterson believes Obama’s legacy will be “a failure. He’s a socialist. He has not impacted the lives of black Americans for the good.” He continued, “He will go down in history as the worst, the most resented president we have ever had thus far.”

Asked to react to former President Bill Clinton’s claims that Republican nominee Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” message is a dog-whistle to southern white racists, Peterson pointed out, “Bill Clinton is a liar.”

He said Democrats throw the word racism around to keep black Americans “brainwashed and dumb-downed and angry just to get the vote.”

In this exclusive video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, Rev. Peterson said that “Many black people don’t like Hillary. They like him [Bill].”
