Cloward-Piven, A Strategy For Economic DESTRUCTION!

Have you recently asked yourself, "just what the HELL are these people in Washington DC doing?!" They spend TRILLIONS of dollars on "stimulus" bills and TARP plans that are really nothing more than cleverly conceived and disguised political slush funds for the re-election of Democrat incumbents. If they weren't political slush funds they would have spent that money up front rather than back-loading the majority of the funds to be spent in election year 2010. They have recently proposed ANOTHER "stimulus" bill ("Son of Stimulus"), because of course the first one hasn't worked as promised.

If this fiscal insanity weren't enough, the Democrats and Obama want to spend a trillion dollars or more on "health care reform" and another trillion or more on a ruinous Cap and Trade bill which is ostensibly intended to mitigate the supposed ill effects of Global Warming--aka Psuedoscience on steroids. These two programs will soon grow even more out of control. Adding gasoline to the fire, new spending for dozens of brand new welfare programs is buried in every appropriations bill. Just yesterday President Obama unveiled his record $3.8 TRILLION budget for the new year.

All of this fiscal insanity leads us back to the original head-scratcher, "just what the HELL are these people in Washington DC doing?!"

There are those who say that the Democrat "Progressives" are spending like lunatics to buy votes, and haven't even considered the consequences. That opinion assumes far too much stupidity from where I sit. Others say that this is an orchestrated attempt to crash the financial system and remake America as a far poorer socialist state. To date, it's gone by the name of "Hope and Change we can believe in." In truth this is a strategy, and it already has a name.

Welcome to the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis. In a nutshell, the aim of Cloward-Piven is to bring America to her knees and force political change by overwhelming us with debt and a colossal welfare state. This is malevolent and 100% purposeful, and it must be STOPPED if we are to survive as a free people.
The following link explains this evil plan:

Glenn Beck also explains Cloward-Piven in a frightening five part video series. Grab your favorite alcoholic beverage and the blood pressure medicine. Believe me, you'll need both.

The fantastic and talented conservatives at Axis of Right (highly recommended) explain how we arrived at 14.3 trillion dollars of debt:

-In 2001 when Bush took office, the debt was roughly 1/3 of what it is today, at $5.6 trillion.
-In 2006, the Congress voted to raise the debt limit by $784 billion to $9 trillion.
-In 2007, Congress voted to raise the debt limit by $850 billion, to $9.85 trillion.
-In 2008, Congress voted to raise the debt limit by another $800 billion, to $10.6 trillion.
-In late 2008, Congress voted again (as part of TARP) to raise the debt limit by $700 billion, to -$11.3 trillion.
-In early 2009, Congress voted to raise the debt ceiling (as part of the Porkulus bill) by $800 billion to $12.1 trillion.
-Just last month in December of 2009, Congress, running out of money, raised the debt ceiling by just under $300 billion, to $12.4 trillion.
-Now, Congress is raising the debt limit by a whopping $1.9 trillion. That’s more than the last three debt ceiling raises combined.
-The total of debt ceiling increases passed during the first year of the Obama administration now nearly equal to the increases passed in the first six years of Bush’s presidency.

Or, to look at it another way:

-Total debt ceiling increases under Bush and Republican Congress (6 years): $3.4 trillion
-Total debt ceiling increases under Bush and Democrat Congress (2 years): $2.35 trillion
-Total debt ceiling increases under Obama and Democrat Congress (1 year): $3. trillion
------------------------- -------------------------- -------------------------

Let's look at the big picture. We have out-of-control spending at a time when tax receipts are at a low point due to an economy in recession. To add economic (and moral) insult to injury, the Democrats have dramatically expanded the welfare rolls, and pushed for huge new taxes using class warfare rhetoric, Cap and Trade legislation, and a complete step by step takover of the American health care system. The result of these huge new taxes will be more economic stagnation and debt.

This is beyond mere stupidity, it's PURPOSEFUL DESTRUCTION!

It's Cloward-Piven. Sharpen your pitchforks folks, you may just need them soon....


  1. We have been under a slow slide to communist - socialism for a long time-via both parties...
    Your take on Bush is absolutely correct!!
    The last election for Pres. I stated that I would not vote for another aisle reacher- John Mc Cain---that this country needed to see an avalanche in order to 'wake up'!!
    With bho- and his czars - we are experiencing that avalanche and ---I believe- we in the US are finally waking up...

    BTW- thank you for visiting my site and for you excellent comment....

  2. BTW-I'm adding your site to my roll.

  3. Carol thanks for stopping by! Like you, I'm DONE supporting RINOS. I volunteered for McCain even though I despised the things he'd done in the Congress. Like most conservatives I did so because of the OBVIOUS threat posed by Obama.

    A note to any Republican Party functionaries who happen to show up here: If you put up another RINO for President, or support another Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio, you'll never get another penny from me and you won't even get my vote!

  4. My last 'lesser of two evils' was Arnold S- :-)
    I pulled the lever for McCain because Palin was on the I wouldn't even do that---

  5. Progressives and this strategy have contributed to the problems we now have. It is the kind of information we should have been learning years ago. You do a nice job in defining it here.

    Reading the mission statement William F. Buckley wrote when he founded the National Review, he clearly warns that there are forces at play that would challenge our Republic and way of life. It took my breath away because he talked about events happening now in 1954!!!

  6. Thanks for stopping by hoosierarmymom. I learned of this strategy maybe 10 months ago, but recent events have spurred me to write about it. As for learning about this years ago...heck who thought we'd elect radicals of this sort?

    BTW, I LOVE Bill Buckley's writings!

  7. BUT WHYYYYY?? WHY do this to America??
    And, didn't Wm F Buckley elucidate WHAT AND WHY AND WHO? Or was he too frightened to tell the truth? "Challenge our Republic and our way of life...?" THAT is EXACTLY what IS HAPPENING NOW....and he knew in 1954. No wonder the left despised him. (Bilderberg Group?)
    I wonder who else knows why and who and what? I wonder if Reagan did, he MUST have but wouldn't he have DONE SOMETHING?
    YIKES. I wonder if Sarah knows.
    McCain's in on it...I just know it.
    But what IS IT? Boy, Jingo...I just want my beloved America BACK. They got our schools, they got our media.......they're winning.
    They STILL have our schools and our media but the Tea Partiers are here; too bad it's a tad too late. We have a lost generation or two of kids who sincerely believe redistribution is the only way of life. God help us all.

  8. Why do this Z?
    So they can re-make America in the socialist model. They really don't care that it hasn't worked anywhere in the world, this is their religion. And people DO NOT easily give up on their religion, do they?

    I think Sarah's aware of Cloward-Piven, but she's taken the most efficient path to power in order to fight this type of Nihilism. She can't get tangled in these weeds like we can. McCain probably thinks we're just nuts.

    BTW, Sarah gave one hell of a speech at the Tea Party convention last night!

    This is do or die time for America

  9. Morgan, how have you been? Sorry I've been out of touch, how are you? Johnnymac.

  10. Johnny I've been great man! Thanks for asking. How have you and Anne been doing? Give me the details homeboy, it's so good to hear from you!

  11. Beaker! Long time no see Beak. About the Duck, I've seen him at Z's a number of times and he even stopped here for a go round once. Good luck. :-)

  12. It is interesting that "Son of Stimulus" can be abreviated to "SoS".

    christian soldier is right, we do need to wake up, but that is just the beginning. This strategy (and others) has been implemented for generations, it will take as much to turn things around.

    Thanks for the great post JINGOIST, we seem to be on the same page today. I would love to hear your comments on my post...check it out when you have a chance.

  13. There was an interesting article in Free Republic about the Israeli government building battery stations for electric cars.

    I have seen electric trucks designed in the 50's
    that apparently did work at car shows. The market based on cheap gas made these vehicles car show oddities quickly.

    The notion of markets determining what type of transportation we use eludes his grasp.

  14. William F. Buckley was simply brilliant. :-) I do enjoy reading your articles as well, as I can see where Buckley has influenced your style. A good thing!

  15. HoosierArmyMom you're far too kind. Buckley may have influenced my political outlook, but you'd be hard pressed indeed to find his brilliance in my writing. :-)
