A few weeks ago, the Obama administration made it clear to the world, that they do not consider people like Bin Laden, or organizations like Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad or Hamas, to be “terrorists” and went so far as to rename the international “war on terror,” the “overseas contingency operation,” so as not to further offend any of these folks.
Then, his Department of Homeland Security issued a new “terror report” redefining “terrorists” to include legal American citizens openly opposed to illegal immigration, abortion, socialism, and people who trample on their First, Second, Ninth and Tenth Amendment Rights, aka, “rightwing extremists.” The Founders were “Domestic Terrorists” According to Obama’s DHS
Now, Obama Seeks Equal Partnerships in Hemisphere, namely, with Castro’s Communist Cuba and Communist thug Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, both of whom despise everything America is or ever was… and always will.
Unless of course, Obama is successful in his massive effort to reduce the United States to “equal” status with third world communist dictatorships, in which case, he will most certainly be a hero to folks like Chavez and Castro.
Over a million American taxpayers, of all political stripes and walks of life, took to American streets to protest the direction of the new administration and its efforts to reduce America to equal third world status, economically, militarily, in every way possible. The Obama administration belittled and ridiculed the historic events…
Obama was not only elected under his political idol’s Rules for Radicals, he governs by these rules.
Saul Alinsky’s 1971 book Rules for Radicals, provides a collection of rules to guide the process. But he emphasizes these rules must be translated into real-life tactics that are fluid and responsive to the situation at hand.
1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat....”
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time....”
8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.”
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”
11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every positive has its negative.”
12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…
The fact that Obama’s administration uses these tactics not against Islamic terrorists, or third world communist dictators, but instead, average freedom loving American citizens, is maybe the most telling fact concerning the man and his administration.
His belittling reaction to last week’s Tea Party events was not nearly as friendly, welcoming or inclusive, as his overtures to Iran, Chavez or Castro. Clearly agitated by any dissenting views or commentaries from those who oppose his “populist” agenda, which is only popular with folks who don’t like America much, the Rules for Radicals become increasingly, well, radical…
That’s because Obama indeed, has more in common with his peeps, Castro, Chavez, Alinsky and Ayers, than he has ever, or will ever, have in common with the average American. And like his mentors and heroes of the so-called “people’s movement,” (aka socialist or communist proletariat movement), he seeks to silence, personalize, isolate and polarize his enemies.
And when all else fails, Redirect...
Faced with the prospect of headline reports of a million Americans protesting his agenda in the streets, he released Top Secret CIA interrogation memos from the previous administration in order to redirect public attention away from a growing public dissent against his administration, and back on to the Bush administration.
Although Obama immediately eliminated any possibility of charging CIA interrogators with any sort of crime, and even though the information contained in these memos had been public for some time, the left-leaning news media, which also ignored or belittled the Tea Parties, replaced news of widespread public anger over Socialist Obama policies with old news about CIA interrogation procedures. Procedures, that even Obama will authorize in the end…
One of the most common “Rules for Radicals” tactics is to misdirect attention away from the agenda that might meet with resistance, and focus the public on something else, preferably, something that will capture their emotions.
This is why Obama never makes a public speech without reminding the audience that he is the “anti-Bush,” even though in matters of national security, he has yet to change a single Bush policy, other than to rename them and expose them, using the exploitation of previous Top Secret security measures to provide proof of a “more transparent” presidency.
But, the man willing to release secret Bush security memos while still at war with those same enemies, is still not willing to release his own birth or college records. He is making the Bush administration more transparent, but not his own.
This too is a common Rule for Radicals.
“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”
In the first 90 days in power, the Obama administration has attacked...
The free-market economy
National Security agencies and policies
Meanwhile, he has worked to “unite” America with anti-American communist Cuba, Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez, Iran and Hamas, while redefining average American citizens and US soldiers who oppose all of it, as “domestic terrorists.”
This emboldens his faithful followers and ignites a firestorm of dissent from his enemies, the American people, whom he has already labeled for press and law enforcement benefit, as nutty rightwing extremists on the verge of becoming domestic terrorists.
CNN, reporter Susan Roesgen did her best to follow Obamanation talking points by labeling Tea Party protesters as Fox News stooges who didn’t understand that Obama had given them a $400 tax credit… as if that will make a dent in the economic chaos being created by leftwing nuts running wild in DC.
The left is at least ten steps ahead of the American right. The DHS report was not a shot across the bow of American conservatives. It was an effort to get out in front of impending headlines and establish for the record, that anyone who disagrees with Obama is a “racist,” ‚Äì a “rightwing radical,” ‚Äì or even a “domestic terrorist,” in the spirit of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
It’s much more than an info war. It sets the stage for future conflict, in which government officials at local law enforcement, the intelligence community and the Department of Defense will be on the lookout for dangerous subversives that wave the American flag, stand up for innocent life, cling to their bibles or guns, seek to uphold or defend the Constitution or God forbid, ask the Resident-in-thief for a copy of his birth or college records, which are clearly more sensitive than Top Secret national security memos.
In the end, it’s all just a little too surreal
The best place to hide such an agenda is right out in the open. In a way, the Obama administration is indeed transparent. One does not need much imagination to see what the administration believes in, or is up to…
Making friends with real terrorist thugs, while redefining the average American citizen as a terrorist, is quite transparent. Sharing $400 million in US taxpayer revenue with known terrorists in Hamas also sends an obvious message, both to terrorists and American citizens.
And Obama’s suggestion that the US Constitution is an outdated piece of paper full of “negative Rights” that should be tossed away and replaced by a more progressive form of government better aligned with the ideas of Karl Marx and Bill Ayers, is also very telling.
The enemy can operate right out in the open if their agenda is so extreme that it is hard for the average citizen to believe. And that is exactly where America is today.
Despite literally hundreds of anti-American signals from the new administration, most Americans remain full of “hope” for “change,” without ever grasping the very real forms of “change” taking place right before their eyes.
Obama’s peeps are not average Americans. They are run of the mill anti-Americans, of both the foreign and domestic sorts. They are his birds of a feather, and together, they are indeed “making history.”
When the average Americans catches up, and realizes that the anti-American changes underway in America are of the sort that foreign enemies of our state welcome them with open arms, they will have second thoughts about the changes they had once hoped for…
Until then, the dismantling of America, by Obama and his peeps, will continue… Castro and Chavez even asked if there was anything they could do to help.... and I’m sure Obama will think of something.
