The Community Organizer In Chief Is Still At It - Know Your Enemy

  Hillary once talked about a "vast right wing conspiracy" I considered myself a proud member of it when it came to the Clinton's. This so-called conspiracy pales in comparison to to the vast left wing conspiracy facing Trump. It is composed of people like Barack Obama, George Soros, the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, our intelligence network, the judicial system, etc. etc. Obama has formed a Saul Alinsky like community organizing group called OFA, (Organization For Action).  The tactics being used right now are Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radical's 101. Much like the radicals of 1968, who were frustrated by their failure at disrupting the Democratic National Convention. Alinsky had the following advice for them. "Do one of three things. One, go find a wailing wall and feel sorry for yourselves. Two, go psycho and start bombing — but this will only swing people to the right. Three, learn a lesson. Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention, you be the delegates. " This is what they did. By 1972 they were in control of the Democratic Party and have more than radicalized it since then. Today the left has suffered a setback and have been caught by surprise and traumatized by the results of this election. Obama, the cool community organizer is playing the role of the modern day Alinsky. He is helping the left refocus on the task before them. They know that they can't control Trump so their focus is on the spineless establishment weasles in congress in order to intimidate them into not supporting Trumps policies. This is a fight that they can win if the American people don't make their presence known in even greater numbers. Obama urged his followers to protect his legacy and not to mope over the election results. This hearkens back to Alinsky's advice to the 1960's radicals. The following is from an article in the New York Post. 

  Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall. The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to go into halls quietly so as not to raise alarms, and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together.” Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions. “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” It also urges them to ask “hostile” questions — while keeping “a firm hold on the mic” — and loudly boo the the GOP politician if he isn’t “giving you real answers. This is Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals at work.

Rule # 1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. 

In the Civil War Lee was successful against most Union commanders because he was able to get into his opponents head. Lee was always outnumbered but that never mattered to him. He was more aggressive and bolder than his opponent. That is until Grant came along. It only took Grant eleven months to defeat Lee because he realized that he held most of the cards. He had vastly more men, equipment, food, ammunition and resources than Lee. Those eleven months were brutal  and bloody. Grant lost more men in the first month of campaigning than Lee had in his whole army. By contrast during the late spring and summer of 1862 George McClellan shipped his army by boat down to Ft. Monroe Virginia. From there the Army of the Potomac advanced along the peninsula between the York and James river. The campaign was well conceived and the Army advanced against Richmond until after the battle of Fair Oaks where Confederate General Joseph Johnston was seriously wounded. General Robert E. Lee replaced Johnston and from that moment on he was in McClellan's head. Lee attacked McClellan almost continuously. Mcclellan was convinced that he was vastly outnumbered by Lee and would order a retreat to Harrison's Landing. Lee lost every battle during the Peninsula Campaign, with the exception of Gaines Mill. However it did not matter because McClellan was a defeated man in mind, body and spirit. If he had the mind, body and spirit of U.S. Grant the war could have been over by 1863. Until now the establishment Republicans have been McClellan, John Pope, Ambrose Burnside, and Joe Hooker all rolled into one. Trump on the other hand is Grant. He holds all the cards and like Grant he realizes this and is utilizing his superior resources against the enemy. The collective power of the American people. Like Grant, if he doesn't back down, and remains steadfast, the enemy will be defeated in the end. 

Rule 4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.“ 

How many times have you seen the liberals defend the worst behavior from their politicians and then Republicans and conservatives are condemned for something that pales by comparison. For example Bill Clinton physically molested multiple women along with violently raping at least two. Hillary staunchly defends him in order to preserve her own political viability and drags Bill's accusers through the mud. Yet when Trump just talks about fondling women in a locker room conversation that just happened to have been taped, this behavior is portrayed as ten times worse by the liberals. However when conservatives point out this behavior they are the ones that are accused of self righteousness and hypocrisy. Bill Clinton avoids the draft on three different occasions during the Vietnam War, violating the law in the process, but George W. Bush joining the Air National Guard is somehow worse. Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Obama were involved in multiple scandals much worse than Watergate but when General Flynn simply talks to a Russian official it is worse than Watergate. The same people who destroy innocent babies by the millions, destroy homes with their social policies thereby creating more criminal activity, support drug use, same sex marriage, violate the 1st Amendment by trying to squelch freedom of religion and speech, will not hesitate to quote scripture when it suits their purposes.  

 Rule # 5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.“ There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

This is why they are constantly making baseless accusations toward us such as bigot, racist, homophobe, misogynist, xenophobe, nativist, and on and on and on, Ad infinitum.
Nobody in their right mind wants to be any of these things. This is a big reason why the establishment Republicans, and so called conservatives, back down as much as they do. The only defense against these kind of attacks is not to care about what people think or say about you. Your attitude should be, Is this the best you got? Hit me with your best shot. How many bullies would we have rendered totally ineffective by not caring what they think or do. The political left are the biggest bullies in the world. Ridicule is an effective tactic because far too many people are slaves to what other people think of them. It is a sign of insecurity. This is a strength of people like Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, and Mark Levin. They don't care what people think. Yes ridicule is very effective but we have it in our power to just as quickly to render this Alinsky tactic ineffective

Rule 8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.“ Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

Sound familiar. We are under continuous assault by the left and have been for many years now. I don't have to go into a lot of detail on this one. The left manufactures fake news and fake issues everyday and to anyone paying attention this Alinsky tactic is self-evident. This is the whole reason for existence of Obama's OFA.  

Rule 9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.“ Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

Again, I cannot stress enough that the silent majority holds all the cards, just like Grant did. We hold the power. There is no greater power than the power of the people. We proved this in the last election. Everybody and everything in the establishment was stacked against Trump. It was the forgotten silent majority that had the final say and placed him in power. In many, if not most battles that Nathan Bedford Forrest fought in, his forces were outnumbered by the Yankees. Usually two and three to one. He usually prevailed by daring and bluff however. Forrest's Murfreesboro raid was a perfect example. The Union position near Oaklands mansion and Col. Parkhursts position on the northwest side of Murfreesboro were too strong for Forrest to take. He bluffed them into surrendering by making them think that they were vastly outnumbered. A surrender note that demanded their immediate and unconditional surrender, to avoid further bloodshed was sent in under flag of truce. Forrest threatened that if he was compelled to carry the position by assault he would give no quarter to those who resisted. They caved and surrendered not realizing that if they had held out a little longer Forrest would have had no choice but to retreat. If we hold out on the right, and remain steadfast, the left will have no choice but to retreat.

Rule # 10. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.“ Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

This is the passive resistance or non violent strategy employed by Martin Luther King, Gandhi and Thoreau. We have to avoid making martyrs out of these people by overreacting to them. King and Gandhi were on the right side of the issue using this strategy. Obama is doing the work of the devil however. One reason that King was successful with passive resistance was that he had help from racist cops like Bull Connor and segregationist politicians like George Wallace that unleashed violence upon peaceful demonstrators in the form of night sticks, guns, fire hoses and dogs. These reactions by the authorities bring news coverage and sympathy to the plight of the passive resisters. A smart cop in Albany Georgia named Laurie Pritchett nearly stopped King dead in his tracks by using restrained law enforcement tactics that did not overreact against what came to be called the Albany Movement. Many people have heard about the Montgomery bus boycott, the sit-in's, the Freedom Rides, Birmingham and Selma but the Albany movement has no special place in the lexicon of Civil Rights history. This is because Pritchett's measured response deprived King of much needed news coverage. There were peaceful protests coupled with peaceful police arrests. Luckily for King, Bull Connor played right into his hands. Just before the Birmingham Children's march organized by James Bevel, was King's lowest moment. This was the result of his lack of success in Albany. 

Rule # 11. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.“ Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

This is why the left shoots down all common sense solutions to problems. These solutions must not be allowed to be implemented. First of all they might work and they do not fit the narrative of the left.

Rule # 12. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

How many times have you seen this tactic used against Republicans and conservatives? It has been tried numerous times against Trump but it hasn't worked yet. They diminished whatever legitimate legacy that George W. Bush had. It worked against Judge Bork, Michelle Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and now General Flynn. They tried it against Clarence Thomas, Jeff Sessions, and now they are going after Steve Bannon. Because of this tactic Republicans and Conservatives have to be above reproach in their professional and moral lives. Democrats can lie, cheat, steal, and whore around. Doesn't matter to their constituency and the Democratic establishment. It only matters when you have an R or C in front of your name.

In conclusion this is a war that we can win. They have a plan of attack but we must have an adequate plan of defense. With knowledge of their tactics they can be easily defeated. Knowledge is power. There are vastly more of us than there are of them. There is no need to fear. The truth is on our side. We also have to be able to name the enemy and realize that the time for compromise is past. The real two Party system died with Kennedy. As a nation we are now fighting for our very survival.
