Question: What is the Cloward-Piven Strategy and is it covertly being employed by President Obama and his allies as a means of destroying this great country of ours?

There is sufficient evidence to prove that President Obama is in fact employing this strategy to destroy the USA as we know it today-You Decide:

“The Cloward-Piven Strategy is a deliberate series of tactics designed to bring a system down in collapse so that a preferred system can be erected in its place. Named after two Columbia University professors, it was actually employed in the early 1970s.  I want to repeat that:  it was actually employed.

This is not your ordinary conspiracy theory.  In this case, we know that the strategy was employed and had some effect.  Namely, by deliberately burdening New York city’s welfare system, they managed to bankrupt the city, which so declared in 1975.

Cloward and Piven, therefore, have made it impossible to take at face value measures which are put forward as being ‘for the poor,’ especially when those plans emerge from people associated with them or their organizations.

Cloward taught at Columbia University for almost five decades.  During his tenure, a certain Obama attended.  Did Obama and Cloward ever interact?  Did Obama ever take any of Cloward’s courses?  No one can prove he didn’t because Obama refuses to allow Columbia to release his transcripts.   In 1982, Piven returned to New York.  Did Obama interact with these two individuals?

In light of the current push for nationalized health care and the nationalization of numerous sectors of American society we have to consider the real possibility that the point of these measures is actually to bring about a national collapse.

I know there is a real horror among some to be associated with anything that smacks of a ‘conspiracy.’  Also, the American people tend to want to give people the benefit of the doubt and operate on the view that people have sincere intentions even when they are sincerely wrong.  What does one do, though, when you are talking about people who have embraced conspiracy, surprise, and manipulation as their actual method?

 “If you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas.”

Obama’s connections to organizations like Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation are well known.  The circles he has been running in for the last three decades ensure that he is at least conversant on the topic of the Cloward-Piven strategy (which was inspired by Alinsky, itself).  How do we know that Obama doesn’t have the same goals?  Piven, for example, was a board member of the Democratic Socialists of America.  The IAF, founded by atheist Saul Alinsky, spun off the Gamaliel Foundation (which Obama worked for), an organization that deliberately works through churches to achieve their agenda.  These are people who rely on sleight of hand and deception to operate.  How do we know that Obama isn’t the same?

There are hundreds of thousands of progressives, liberals, and Democrats who sincerely want to help people, and that is why they advocate for programs such as nationalized health care, welfare, etc.  I know some of them, and I know that they would be repulsed by the notion that these programs be used as a means for transforming the United States to reflect Piven’s socialistic vision for it.  I am calling upon these very people to rise up and demand that Obama release records that would help us understand what his values really are.  Obviously, no one will listen to conservatives.  They are too easy to dismiss as ‘birthers.’  But if liberals shout loud enough… well that might be something else.

Indeed, this essay has been written to just those people, for conservatives already know the truth about ACORN, the IAF, the Gamaliel Foundation, and Cloward and Piven and their National Welfare Rights Organization under George Wiley.  These connections are easily documented by basic searches online.  I think you are dead wrong-headed in your attempt to solve the nation’s ills through the government but in the main I think you are right-hearted.  I know you would be disgusted to discover that you’ve been played as dupes if the real goal of those actually implementing these programs is to bring the country down to its knees.  Even many liberals have noted that the practical effect of all of these government intrusion is national bankruptcy unless something dramatic happens.

Normally, one can look back on a politician’s career in order to ascertain what they really believe in contrast to that which they say they believe.  Actions speak louder than words.  In the case of Obama, there are a scant two years as a United States senator to look at and his time as a state rep generated very little insight into his true beliefs, as well.  If Obama actually intends to employ the Cloward and Piven strategy, however, ‘looking back’ might be too late.

Call upon Obama to release all requested records, immediately (especially the Columbia University records in this case).  If we wake up in ruins because you didn’t demand these records and they proved pertinent, it will be on your head.  If we see the records and they yield no new insight, then we will have harmed nothing, having only viewed what just about any president has eventually had exposed.

But we all have the right to know… but only you can bring it about.

  • IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE WAKE UP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO THE FOLOWING FACTS..............Barack Obama feels no patriotism for America anywhere in his mind, heart, soul or body. Straight forwardly put....... HE IS EXECUTING THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT VERY SUCCESSFULLY FROM A MARXIST POINT OF VIEW AND A MARXIST AJENDA....he is a dedicated MARXIST/COMMUNIST who is executing the "Cloward and Piven Plan" to collapse the American Economy and "bring America to its knees". A Socialist totalitarian dictatorship (Castro/Chavez) style will soon follow. We are in a vicious struggle for the American way of life and there is real doubt that we will survive unless we answer the call to duty. We lack leaders who will stand up and tell Obama, " are on the road to impeachment" and then follow through. Some of these leaders are beginning to speak out and we must support them and their efforts to stop OBAMA. But, never doubt that this IMPERIAL PRESIDENT is intentionally leading a full-bore MARXIST movement to bring this nation down for good. We must recognize these enemies and we must act against them or we are finished as the nation that was founded 230 years ago, under the United States Constitution. WAKE UP, AMERICA! THE COMMUNISTS ARE IN POWER IN WASHINGTON, D.C., AND ONLY AN AROUSED, DETERMINED, AND YES, ANGRY CITIZENRY HAS A CHANCE TO SAVE THIS NATION.  DO ALL YOU CAN TO WAKE UP YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO THESE FACTS!

  •          Amazing , someone has finally awoken to this after only FOUR years , but to late to get the b--t--d out of office .  IMPEACH BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE !!!

  • This came out at least 4 years ago. I, and many others, have spoken out, signed too many petitions, and tried to get Columbia and others places to make public his papers, and nothing has been done. No one, or agency has made them turn over the papers, has stopped them, has done ANYTHING but let it go on, and let him get away with it. No word from all the patriotic Americans, or the oaths of all those who could stop it will help. If something could be done I'D BE IN THE FRONT LINE!!! I want that vile pos, that wife of his, and all those who abet him, O.U.T.!!! Preferably in front of a firing squad. The ammo is worth more than all of them combined. 

  • If Americans set back and allow this to happen then we get what we deserve. So many people have been telling others that this was going on. But we still have alot of America who refuse to believe this is happening. There is one thing that ready bothers me is our congress and senate is supporting Obama is doing this. We also have a congress and senate that has failed to do the business of we the people of America.

  • Of course he is! Why is this even being asked? Its a definite----- YES!

    And by our Congressmen taking so long to regroup to combat it we suffer with a debt that will climb higher and higher. Collapse is assured unless its not turned around within another year. Vote for people in 2014 who will make a difference--Vote in a Republican Senate and congress. Our hope

  • YES HE IS< I have been shouting about this for five years, he IS a Marxist, He Is A Communist(M-L) And Francis Fox Piven, a very evil old lady who is still out there says he is NOT going far enough. He is intent on destroying our entire system so he can rebuild it how HE (& Karl Marx) wants it.

    READ the rules for Radicals(Alinsky), Obama  is following every one of them and it is the only way to beat them. USE the rules against them, they hate it!

  • Why cant someone hack in and get Obamas transcripts and application as a foreign exchange student? Liberals do it all the time!!!

  • Read this if you want to understand just how deseptive Obama really is.
  • " when a man comes to me with a problem , i listen to his words and watch his actions. when he comes a second time i ignore his words an watch his actions." words to live by.

    The whole Obama story is unbelievable when you connect the dots. School transcribes hidden from the public, three years to produce a birth certificate, social security number is in question, on and on it goes ,yet no one seems to care? WTF! Add what he has done while in office and Americans should be in outrage over Obama, instead most have become part of the problem hopping for the big pay day.
    I have no drought that Obama has one function to bankrupt America, we see New york, California, chicago following every word Obama speaks as if he is the answer to their problem. They do not seem to have any real concern about correcting their mistakes, why? They expect Obama and the government to come to their recue when their cites go bankrupt. Like spoiled children they one again expect mom and Dad to save them from their own mistakes. The problem is it's not the government . it's the American working tax payers dollars that will be spent saving them so they can go make the same mistakes all over again.

  • It is obvious as to what he is doing, more than obvious actually but , people have their collective heads shoved so far up a certain body cavity that won't be named that they can't see it . No one remembers or chooses to remember the subversive groups and gangs of the late 60's and early 70's . These groups were on all the collage campus's of America preaching their message of over throw the government  and power to the people . What they wanted was power for themselves .

    Barry Obama bin Liar , friend of Bill the weatherman Ayers suddenly appears and is now employing the old strategy to destroy America and satisfy his Communistic dreams and principles . Most of our working and voting people do not remember those days as it is not taught in the schools today except as a footnote to illistrate the unpopularity of the Viet Nam War . Obama and his handlers know this and now use it against us . Those of us who remember have to educate and inform those who do not before it is to late .
