During the late 60′s Marxist indoctrination in America’s Colleges and Universities reached it’s zenith. Using the Vietnam War as a fulcrum thousands of Marxist/Socialist professors leveraged the fears of young Americans to indoctrinate them into Marxism under various guises. Those young Americans were afraid of dying in the Vietnam war which had been going on for over a decade. They were distrustful of the government, the “Establishment” and of “Corporate America”.

The cold war had been a boon for the entertainment industry, books and movies exploiting the covert intelligence communities activities were a multi-billion dollar industry. It would have been virtually impossible to find a single college student in 1967 who was not familiar with 007, aka James Bond. While it was common knowledge that James Bond was a British secret agent, the constant underlying theme was, that the real James Bond was a covert CIA agent.

Fiasco’s like the failed attempts on Fidel Castro, the execution of Che Guevara, the assignation of John F Kennedy and certain Middle Eastern and Eastern European coups commonly believed to have been masterminded by the CIA fueled the paranoia that the US Government could not be trusted.

Combine this with the feelings of alienation produced by an increasing middle and upper middle class where the fathers and mothers spent more time devoted to the corporations that they worked for then with their children and the children of those middle and upper middle class families became easy pickings for Marxist College and University professors.

The consequences of this perfect storm of fear was the creation of dozens of Marxist/Socialist homegrown terrorists groups like the “Weather Underground” and the “Symbionese Liberation Army”. All of which had one thing in common. A book published in 1946 by American Marxist revolutionary Saul Alinsky, “Reveille for Radicals“.

Saul Alinsky was/is the strategic and tactical mastermind behind today’s Marxist coup of the Government of the United States of America. His book “Reveille for Radicals” told those professors how to indoctrinate those angry, disillusioned and frightened middle class America kids. In 1971 Alinsky rewrote and updated “Reveille for Radicals” with the book “Rules for Radicals“.

Everything that is happening today, from the Marxist Obama Administrations coup, to the lies and deceptions being perpetrated by the Fifth Column Treasonous Media to cover-up and support that Marxist coup have their origins in either Saul Alinsky’s “Reveille for Radicals” which set the stage by giving the Marxist College and University professors the tools to indoctrinate American middle class college students in the 60′s and 70′s. Or in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” which are and have been the handbook for Barrack Obama and the Marxists that he has surrounded himself with.

To understand the title of this article, you need to understand some of the basic teaching of Saul Alinsky. For that is what “Reveille for Radicals” and “Rules for Radicals” are, they are the textbooks for Propaganda 101. Those textbooks cover nearly all of the tactics being employed today by the Fifth Column Treasonous Media to deflect from and cover-up the scandals of the Obama Administration.

Rules for Radicals

Opening page – Dedication

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

Prologue

“The Revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, ‘Burn the system down!’ They have no illusions about the system, but plenty of illusions about the way to change our world. It is to this point that I have written this book.”

1. The Purpose

In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace…. “Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.’ This means revolution.” p.3

“Radicals must be resilient, adaptable to shifting political circumstances, and sensitive enough to the process of action and reaction to avoid being trapped by their own tactics and forced to travel a road not of their choosing.” p.6

“A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.” p.10

“An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth — truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing…. To the extent that he is free from the shackles of dogma, he can respond to the realities of the widely different situations….” pp.10-11

This is the mindset and mentality of the majority of senior members of the Fifth Column Treasonous Media. It’s also what the majority of senior administration officials and advisers in the Obama Administration believe. Let me make this 100 percent perfectly clear. William “Bill” Ayer’s was not just some guy from the neighborhood. He is and was a student of Saul Alinsky along with being a member of the American Marxist terrorist group “The Weather Underground”. Most of you reading this, I assume, know that William “Bill” Ayer’s was the individual in Chicago in which whose home Barrack Insane Obama began his political career.

These are the moral and ethical standards these people hold.

2. Of Means and Ends [Forget moral or ethical considerations]

“The end is what you want, the means is how you get it. Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. … The real arena is corrupt and bloody.” p.24

“The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive — but real — allies of the Haves…. The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means… The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be….” pp.25-26

“The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means….” p.29

“The seventh rule… is that generally success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics….” p.34

“The tenth rule… is you do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments…. It involves sifting the multiple factors which combine in creating the circumstances at any given time… Who, and how many will support the action?… If weapons are needed, then are appropriate d weapons available? Availability of means determines whether you will be underground or above ground; whether you will move quickly or slowly…” p.36

Don’t get this fucked up, these really are their morals and ethics. To them, the only morals or ethics they have are, “The End Justifies the Means”. When first elected Barrack Insane Obama made the American people a promise, it was right out in the open, even if he was lying about what that promise really meant. He promised to “Fundamentally Transform” America. The fundamental transformation that the vast majority of American’s thought that Obama was promising was to eliminate the corruption that had become systemic within the US Government and the crony capitalism that had bred it. What he was really promising was a fundamental transformation from American Entrepreneurial capitalism to a Marxist command and control economy.

4. The Education of the Organizer

“To the organizer, imagination… is the dynamism that starts and sustains him in his whole life of action as an organizer. It ignites and feeds the force that drives him to organize for change….
“The organizer knows that the real action is in the reaction of the opposition. To realistically appraise and anticipate the probable reactions of the enemy, he must be able to identify with them, too, in his imagination, and foresee their reactions to his actions….
“The organizers searching with a free and open mind void of certainty, hating dogma, finds laughter not just a way to maintain his sanity but also a key to understanding life.”pp.74-75

“…the organizer must be able to split himself into two parts — one part in the arena of action where he polarizes the issue to 100 to nothing, and helps to lead his forces into conflict, while the other part knows that when the time comes for negotiations that it really is only a 10 percent difference.” p.78

“…the organizer is constantly creating new out of the old. He knows that all new ideas arise from conflict; [See Dialectic Process] that every time man as had a new idea it has been a challenge to the sacred ideas of the past and the present and inevitably a conflict has raged.” p.79

5. Communication [Notice the emphasis on conflict, dialogue, relationships, etc. Team "service" is essential to building strong relationships through "common involvements"]

“And so the guided questioning goes on without anyone losing face or being left out of the decision-making. Every weakness of every proposed tactic is probed by questions…. Is this manipulation? Certainly….” p.88

“One of the factors that changes what you can and can’t communicate is relationships. There are sensitive areas that one does not touch until there is a strong personal relationship based on common involvements. Otherwise the other party turns off and literally does not hear….

“Conversely, if you have a good relationship, he is very receptive…. For example, I have always believed that birth control and abortion are personal rights to be exercised by the individual. If, in my early days when I organized… neighborhood in Chicago, which was 95 per cent Roman Catholic, I had tried to communicate this, even through the experience of the residents, whose economic plight was aggravated by large families, that would have been the end of my relationship with the community. That instant I would have been stamped as an enemy of the church and all communication would have ceased.

“Some years later, after establishing solid relationships, I was free to talk about anything…. By then the argument was no longer limited to such questions as, ‘How much longer do you think the Catholic Church can hang on to this archaic notion and still survive?’ …the subject and nature of the discussion would have been unthinkable without that solid relationship.” pp.93-94

6. In the Beginning: The Process of Power [Notice the compromise needed to build the power base. Yet, since pragmatism has eroded all values, it's simply a matter of ends justifying means. It's not unlike churches that attract members through the world's entertainment -- then continue to soften or hide Truth in order to keep them happy and lure more.]

“From the moment the organizer enters a community he lives, dreams… only one thing and that is to build the mass power base of what he calls the army. Until he has developed that mass power base, he confronts no major issues…. Until he has those means and power instruments, his ‘tactics’ are very different from power tactics. Therefore, every move revolves around one central point: how many recruits will this bring into the organization, whether by means of local organizations, churches, service groups, labor Unions, corner gangs, or as individuals.”

“Change comes from power, and power comes from organization.” p.113

“The first step in community organization is community disorganization. The disruption of the present organization is the first step toward community organization. Present arrangements must be disorganized if they are to be displace by new patterns…. All change means disorganization of the old and organization of the new.” p.116

Barrack Insane Obama classified himself as a “Community Organizer” in Chicago before he ran for the United States Senate.

These are the tactics employed both by the Fifth Column Treasonous Media and by the Obama Administration.

7. Tactics

“Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with the world around them. … Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves.” p.126

Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pps.127-134):

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…. [and] the collapse of communication.

3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

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.’…

“…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” (pps.127-134)

The “Operation Fast and Furious” “Benghazi” “IRS” and “NSA” scandals would have brought down any Republican Administration (think of a President Sarah Palin here), but have not had any significant impact on the Obama Administration. The reason for that is that the Fifth Column Treasonous Media has buried those scandals by flashing them across the media, then forgetting them, allowing them to fade from the public’s attention by not investigating or following up on them. It’s the same reason that the government dumps documents on Friday afternoon, because they know that whatever is in those documents will be old news by Monday morning.

    I award you this month’s Apos Trophy for punctuation misuse.

    “It’s” means “it is.” The possessive of “it” is “its,” with no apostrophe.

    Former Weatherman terrorist William “Bill” Ayers has no apostrophe in his name. If his name is used in a possessive way, e.g., “Bill Ayers’ dreams for America,” then an apostrophe is used after his name.

    You’d think that before spending the money to have a sign made, the owner would at least make sure that everything was spelled correctly and free of punctuation errors. There’s a store up the street that has a sign advertising “Stereo’s”

    Hillary Rodham as a student at Wellesly in 1969, interviewed Saul Alinsky and wrote her thesis on Alinsky’s theories and methods. She concludes her thesis by writing, “Alinsky is regarded by many as the proponent of a dangerous socio/political philosophy. As such he has been feared, just as Eugene Debs or Walt Whitman or Martin Luther King has been feared, because each embraced the most radical of political faiths, “democracy.”

    By Ashley Collman, The Daily Mail

    A wounded war veteran has described the moment security agents treated him like a ‘terrorist’ on a recent trip to California because he couldn’t raise his injured right arm in a full-body scanner and his dress uniform contained ‘too much metal.’

    Cpl. Nathan Kemnitz was awarded a Purple Heart after he almost died in 2004 from an injury incurred from a roadside bomb in Fallujah, Iraq. The brave soldier recently traveled to Sacramento, California to receive another award as his district’s veteran of the year.

    But, what should have been a celebratory experience was tainted when suspicious security workers at both the Sacramento International Airport and the California State Capitol Buildings subjected him to intense screenings and even ordered him to take off his uniform.

    not unless she wants those curls (that I think are gorgeous, btw) but Kirsten is a straight-hair kind of girl.

    There was a woman commentator on Fox earlier today and I wish I could remember her name. Her hair was fine, but her teeth, eyes and mouth made her look like an alien. These people are apparently going to some kind of TV/makeup consultants that try to make them look ‘perfect’.

    me too. IMHO most people don’t understand how to prepare it. I steam it until there’s no crunch and then dress it with a nut butter. Our favorite is cashew nut butter.

    Not that long ago there was a ‘foodie’ push to cook veggies ‘al dente’ (some bull about nutritional value). Well I’m sorry but I’m not eating green beans I can’t chew. It is true that some nutrients get lost in the cooking water -- thats why I steam most of our veggies.

    oh no no no.

    that’s STRAWBERRIES and other assorted fruit. Once I went hog wild, melted dark chocolate in the microwave and poured it over strawberries, blueberries and orange segments. Put it in the fridge

    And then I ate it.

    Hubby was on a business trip at the time, Molly the Beagle was in the hospital, I was on my own.

    Chocolate is spiritual sustanence.

    I’ll give that a try and thanks for the tip. You might try those acorn squash. Interesting change-up from taters.

    Nidal Hassan refuses to wear his uniform in court, because it represents an “enemy of Islam.”

    Yet he has no problem getting a paycheck every month from that same enemy…

    I’ve tried it and I can’t get it right. I’m thinking it might need to be par-boiled first. ??? Or maybe the asparagus I’ve used is old? I don’t know. It always end up ‘tough’

    This is a sad episode in the history of our military. He gets his pay while those whom he maimed get nothing as their wounds were “work place violence”. ***SPIT*** He should be frog-marched into that courtroom, dry shaved and hung all in the same day.

    @ eaglesoars:

    Take two wooden skewers and spear a row of asparagus so that it looks like a little raft. Brush the asparagus with olive oil and season to taste. Grill over high heat for 2-4 minutes per side.

    @ huckfunn:

    You can grill asparagus…

    You can stir-fry or saute brocolli…

    A lot of veggies you can roast…

    @ eaglesoars:

    I usually brush it with a mixture of 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1 clove of crushed garlic before grilling. Then sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over it before serving

    Well, I’m off to watch tonight’s Sky Sox game. Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and center fielder Dexter Fowler are both down here on rehab assignment after being on the DL. Should be fun to watch. I hear they did their part to deplete the team’s supply of baseballs during BP.

    And the Army overlooked his harassment of soldiers that he
    was supposed to be helping.
    He was reported over and over.

    just another venue to deceive Americans and trash the military…American justice is a joke, civil and military alike
