Is Barack Obama Simply Incompetent… Out Of HisLeague When It Comes To Fulfilling His Duties AsPresident Of The United States? Or Is It EntirelyPossible That Every Move Barack Obama Has MadeHas Been Designed To Destroy The United States OfAmerica… A Country He ClearlyHates.
We are living at a time when America seems to face oneinsurmountable crisis after another: the financial meltdown,health care woes, illegal immigration, an astronomicaldeficit, a record-breaking oil spill.It seems like the America we knew and loved is on a one-way trip to eventual ruin; and as we watch our future, thatwas once so bright, fade into the twilight of despair, our elected officials seem to bedoing nothing to regain the ground we have lost.Why? … Why is Barack Hussein Obama fiddling as Rome burns… as this chaoscontinues to ensue?Is Barack Obama simply incompetent… out of his league when it comes to fulfilling hisduties as President of the United States?Or is it entirely possible that he’s not fiddling… is it possible that every move Barack Obama has made has been designed to destroy the United States… a country he clearlyhates.The unfortunate answer is the latter. The plain and simple truth is that Barack Obama isfollowing a carefully laid out plan that was designed years ago and the ultimate goal of following this plan is the total destruction of the United States as we know it.A plan you say? Why would someone
 plan
our economic demise? Why would theydeliberately sabotage our economy, our livelihoods and our position in the world?The answer is not pretty: Radicals, who presently hold positions of power and authorityin Congress and the White House, are seeking to destroy our capitalist system so that theycan replace it with an insidious and oppressive brand of socialism.And the plan the Left is following is called the
Cloward-Piven Strategy
.The
Cloward-Piven Strategy
is a scheme concocted in the late 60’s by two socialistfaculty members at Columbia University.Generally speaking, the
 
Cloward-Piven Strategy
 
calls for the deliberate flooding of government systems in order to cause the government to implode under the weight of itsown bureaucracy!
 
“Impossible!” 
you say!
“That could never happen in America! We would never let that happen!” 
Unfortunately you would be wrong in that assumption. The
Cloward-Piven Strategy
hasalready been implemented successfully in one of the greatest cities in the world
(NewYork City)
and brought the city to the verge of bankruptcy.And the
Cloward-Piven Strategy
is being put to work right now, as you read these verywords, on a national level. The goal is to create a spiraling nightmare of a socialisteconomic landscape in America…. one that we may never be able to escape.And what is even more shocking are the ties that the man who is presently sitting in theOval Office
(some say he usurped the office)
, Barack Hussein Obama, has to Clowardand Piven and their pupils over the years.
In The Beginning… There Was Cloward and Piven:Their Background,Ideology AndStrategy:
Dr. Richard Cloward met his wifeFrancis Fox Piven
(in later life, anhonorary Chairman of the Democratic Socialists of America)
 when they were working on aproject called
“Mobilization forYouth;” 
an outreach program aimedat gang members on Manhattan’sLower East Side. Piven becameCloward’s coauthor on a number of projects and the two collaborated for the rest of theircareers.Perched in the elitist halls of Columbia University’s School of Social Work, Cloward
(with Piven at his side)
formulated a plan to empower the radical Left and impose asocialist economic reality by purposefully recruiting massive numbers of the poor untoour nation’s Welfare rolls.Cloward and Piven initially unveiled this strategy in an article called
“Mobilizing The Poor: How it Could be Done.” 
The article was picked up and published in the May 2,1966 issue of 
THE NATION 
and given a less explosive, sanitized and deceptive title,
“The Weight of The Poor: A Strategy To End Poverty.” 
The article suggests that the poor segments of society are kept destitute for the benefit of the rich. The poor are thrown off the welfare rolls to provide cheap labor during boomtimes and placated in tough economic times with just enough sustenance to
“douse the fires of rebellion.” 
 
 
Cloward and Piven postulated that the only way to end poverty was to advance legislation
(through militant activism designed to cause a political and economic crisis)
thatguaranteed an annual income for all Americans… typical socialist income redistribution.In the opening paragraph of the article, Cloward and Piven clearly state their premise:
“It is our purpose to advance a strategy which affords the basis for a convergence of  civil rights organizations, militant anti-poverty groups and the poor. If this strategywere implemented, a political crisis would result that could lead to legislation for a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” 
Of course, one does not have to be a rocket-scientist
(or an economist)
to understand thatCloward and Piven’s premise was grossly flawed… income redistribution does notreduce poverty.Such policies only increase the power and scope of government, stifle economies andactually encourage poverty on a larger scale.And how did Cloward and Piven suggest combating supposed social injustice?Essentially, the present system would have to be brought to the verge of ruin so thatradical change could be implemented?And how does one go about collapsing the system? Taking a page from the book of radical left wing community organizer Saul Alinisky, Cloward and Piven suggestedputting the welfare system to work, against itself.According to Cloward and Piven the teaming majority of Americans who technicallyqualified for welfare programs did not, in fact, register to receive the aid. Cloward andPiven claimed, at that time, that approximately 8 million people were receiving someform of welfare, and they believed that as many as 20 million, in total, could bemobilized and placed on the public dole.Cloward and Piven theorized that by mobilizing even a small percentage of the remaining12 million to demand their
entitlements
, the welfare system would be swamped withmore cases than it was designed to handle, obligated to dispense more money than it wasable to give out and that the ensuing result of this chaos would be
"a profound financial  and political crisis"
that would unleash
"powerful forces … for major economic reform at the national level.""Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules,"
Alinsky wrote in Rules forRadicals.
“When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to ‘live up’ to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist ‘rule book’ with a socialist one.” 
That’s the
Cloward-Piven Strategy
in a nutshell. Sabotage the system by overwhelmingit… discredit the system once it is destroyed… and institute more of the policies that youused to destroy the system in the first place.
