Here comes the Alinskyite Right
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/27/2012 9:46:38 AM

David Gregory and Piers Morgan have both met the Alinskyite Right, and progressives in positions of power should take note. Both men are the targets of digital petition drives aimed at holding them to their own standards, and ridiculing them, invoking Rules 4 and 5 from Rules for Radicals: 4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. 5. "Ridicule is man´s most potent weapon." There is no defense

Being the Alinskite Right is the ONLY way we will straighten this situation out.

Gregory and Morgan would be shocked to learn who darly loved and cherished high-capacity Winchester rifles in the 19th century.
The American Indian, that´s who.

Now, let´s be reasonable, not abandon our upright, civil standards to get down in the ugly gutter. We need to help low information voters gain knowledge to make the right choices, and register them to express their improved opinions at the polls. We need to show compassion, compromise our positions to moderate them so they appeal to the lost 47 percenters, most of whom really want to work, raise a very small family headed by one dominant female, and live the New American Dream of seething poverty and oppression by the Bush family. The minute we start to fight back we become no better than they are.

We have tried and tried and tried taking the ´high road´, and where has it gotten us? The left has pilloried us and made us a laughingstock. They will never like us, or even admit that we might actually have good ideas that will work. So what have we got to lose by using their own tactics against them?

We make a mistake in assuming the low information voters just need to be brought up to speed and they will see the light. That won´t happen. They have a totally different view on life. If it doesn´t affect them personally, they do not care. We on the other hand see the big picture. I have to agree that the only way to make them see is to get it down where they live. Let´s roll!!

Ridicule them with the truth. That is what will win the day. Use their ´rules´ against them, but with the added clout of truth, logic, and the American Way.

More concrete steps need to be taken, beyond simple petitions. Filing environmental lawsuits against liberal projects can ensure that they fail. Complaining to administrative agencies about liberals can tie them up in hearings. And finally, libel suits are the perfect answer to liberal media.

While fighting fire with fire is necessary in the short-term, long term efforts should be focused on forcing the left to make a rod for their own back all without the usual preliminary of a war of words.

If the left wants an American version of the NHS then they shall have it. Bring back ´separate but equal´ for the health care field. Force those on the dole to use government-built and operated facilities, not our first-class doctors and buildings that just happen to get a check from Uncle Sam. When the ugly truth about government hospitals, workers, care, and results (including preventable deaths) is revealed that should shake things up considerably.

Eliminate HUD funding for things like Section 8. Bring back the Brutalism School tower blocks and herd the layabouts into them. If you´re going to willingly live like a battery hen, I don´t want to hear any complaints about the coop.

Establish a clear line of demarcation between private and public facilities and publicize the differences between the two. Since government and its supporters will already have what they claim to want, let them explain why it´s such a disaster.

The Alinsky protocol is "Fools Gold"!

There is no reality-based dialogue.
Finding common ground and solving the problem IS NOT the objective.

Assassinating ideas that threaten Progressive ideology IS the objective.

Alinsky is void of emotional intelligence.
Alinsky is void of rational thought.
Alinsky is void of solution-based thinking.
Alinsky is void of humanity.

The sooner we confront that, the faster the Alinsky protocol will become extinct.

CNN reporter ignites firestorm overseas
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/22/2014 9:32:21 AM     Post Reply
CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

2014: The Year Without Summer

In their excellent book, The Year Without Summer: 1816 and the Volcano That Darkened the World and Changed History, William and Nicholas Klingaman relate the history, causes, and effects of the record cold that gripped the northern hemisphere in 1816. (snip) The winter of 2013-14 bears a striking resemblance to that of 1815-16, and there is every reason to believe that what follows will repeat the pattern of earlier periods of extreme cold. The consequences will not be pleasant. As some have begun to realize, periods of extreme cold are far more destructive than periods of warming. My prediction of a

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple. In a long piece devoted to Politico’s Mike Allen, Wemple chronicles the confluence of advertising and journalism via what a practice called “native advertising,” inserting material that looks like it could be an ordinary item written by a journalist, but which actually is paid advertising. Wemple describes native advertising as “the tricks that publishers deploy to elide

Thomas Piketty may not be a household name in this country (yet), but the French economist who is updating Karl Marx has quite a following at the White House and among thought leaders of the Democratic Party. Thomas Hubert of France24 explains: In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality. (Snip) So far this week, he has met the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors as well as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew. “The Democratic Party, especially the Obama administration, has been in contact with us and using our findings for

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/17/2014 10:02:46 AM     Post Reply
For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
