Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats are deliberately and unapologetically
engaging in economic sabotage; simultaneously targeting numerous sectors
of the American economy using orchestrated systemic crisis in an effort
to overwhelm the U.S. economy and effect the destruction of capitalism
and America from within. By using the Cloward-Piven Strategy to promote economic and
social change through the exploitation of misfortune, national
crisis and disorganization the Left is advancing government as
the tool for reorganization. Their tactics and intended

First promoted in 1966 by Marxist Columbia University professors Richard
Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks
to hasten the destruction of capitalism in America by expanding the welfare system to the point of
collapsing the economy and implementing socialism by nationalizing large
sectors of private industry. In their Nation article,
The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty, Cloward and
Piven explicitly defined the kind of “crisis” they sought to create:
By crisis, we mean a publicly visible disruption in some
institutional sphere. Crisis can occur spontaneously (e.g., riots) or as
the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which
either generate institutional disruption or bring unrecognized
disruption to public attention.
No matter where the strategy is implemented, it shares the following
* The offensive organizes previously unorganized groups
eligible for government benefits but not currently receiving all they
* The offensive seeks to identify new beneficiaries and/or
create new benefits.
* The overarching aim is always to impose new stresses on
target systems, with the ultimate goal of forcing their collapse.
The radical Left worked insidiously for decades to establish the
needed framework to dismantle the capitalist system in America as
outlined in the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Concentrated efforts were
devoted to increasing welfare rolls and expanding the Community
Reinvestment Act (CRA), established in 1977 under the Carter
administration. According to Discover The Networks, the CRA,
For purposes of “racial equality” – outlawed redlining
and required banks to extend credit to undercapitalized, high-risk
borrowers in low-income, mostly-minority areas. The Act also established
extensive government oversight to monitor how well banks were complying
with its mandates.
Any bank wishing to expand or to merge with another was required to
first demonstrate that it had complied with all CRA requirements. Final
approval for bank expansions or mergers could be held up or derailed entirely by complaints
— however frivolous or unfounded — where community groups like ACORN or the Greenlining Institute accused a bank of having
violated the CRA.
The New York Post explains what happened next:
As ACORN ran its campaigns against local banks, it quickly hit a
roadblock. Banks would tell ACORN they could afford to reduce their
credit standards by only a little — since Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the federal mortgage giants, refused
to buy up those risky loans for sale on the ’secondary market.’
That is, the CRA wasn’t enough. Unless Fannie and Freddie were
willing to relax their credit standards as well, local banks would never
make home loans to customers with bad credit histories or with too
little money for a down-payment.
So ACORN’s Democratic friends in Congress moved to force Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac to dispense with normal credit standards. Throughout the
early ’90s, they imposed ever-increasing subprime-lending quotas on
Fannie and Freddie….
ACORN’s intimidation tactics, and its alliance with Democrats in
Congress, triumphed. Despite their 1994 takeover of Congress, Republican
attempts to pare back the CRA were stymied….
ACORN had come to Congress not only to protect the CRA from GOP
[Republican] reforms but also to expand the reach of quota-based lending
to Fannie, Freddie and beyond….
[In June 1995] the Clinton administration announced a comprehensive
strategy to push homeownership in America to new heights — regardless of
the compromise in credit standards that the task would require. Fannie
and Freddie were assigned massive subprime lending quotas, which
would rise to about half of their total business by the end of the
Despite warnings of impending financial collapse, Democrat
after Democrat continued to cover
up and attack the regulations to protect Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,
the existence of the housing bubble and continued to advocate
for government expansion of home ownership programs. The CEO of
Fannie Mae even publicly described the “family” connection between
Fannie and Democrats, specifically Barack Obama and the
Congressional Black Caucus.
The proliferation of risky subprime loans, to underqualified
borrowers eventually led to the financial collapse of Fannie Mae,
Freddie Mac, the mortgage industry and many of the banks forced to issue
subprime loans. The Cloward-Piven strategy is the taproot
that triggered the financial crisis of 2008.
Francis Fox Piven continues to encourage use of the strategy. During
the foreclosure crisis, Piven advocated civil disobedience by home
owners facing foreclosure as a way to leverage the crisis to their
benefit. Not surprisingly, ACORN was listening.
(Note: Audio of Piven is difficult to hear without headphones.)
Seeing the opportunity to use the Cloward-Piven strategy to fulfill
the Left’s ultimate agenda, in the fall of 2008 Barack Obama and
Congressional Democrats positioned themselves to force the collapse of
the American economy. Rushing from the campaign trail, Obama and
Congressional Democrats advanced the passage of the $700 billion
Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) nationalizing the mortgage
industry and a large portion of the banking industry, while implementing
planned repeal of Clinton’s welfare reform.
The rapid escalation of the
downfall of capitalism and the American economy was set in motion. As
the Federal Treasury outlayed billions of dollars to finance the federal
takeovers of private industry, U.S. debt increased dramatically, well
beyond the ability of current generations to repay. Future generations
of Americans will be indentured serfs forced to repay the debt
accumulated under the Obama adminstration. Despite TARP’s passage and
implementation late in President George W. Bush’s term, Obama has
ignored the law, as written, refusing to return the loans repaid to the
American people, instead spending the money at his whim to ensure the
“crisis” will remain a financial burden to the American people.
As I wrote in Wet Dreams of the Great Marxist Revolution (Part 1, Part 2), upon assuming office Obama quickly
moved to consolidate power using manufactured crises to nationalize many
of the major American economic sectors: Banking, insurance,
transportation, energy, healthcare, finance and education.
Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) recently told CBS’ Face the Nation anchor Bob Schieffer,
Now we have the federal government taking over
ownership or control of 51 percent of the American economy.
This is stunning. Prior to September of 2008, 100 percent of the
private economy was private.
President Obama’s plan to ”fundamentally transform” the American
economy was evident long before the 2008 election. In a 2001 Chicago
Public Radio Interview Obama was already examining how best to use of
legislation to bring about a Redistribution of Wealth.
Seizing the chance to increase the constituency of voters dependent
on big government while crippling American taxpayers with debt, Obama
and Congressional Democrats rushed a conveniently prepared 1073 page
$819 billion Stimulus Package through the House of Representatives within eight days of President Obama’s inauguration.
The “emergency” legislation passed the
Senate eleven days later, and despite being marketed as critical to
saving the U.S. economy the legislation sat on President Obama’s desk for four days before
signing while he and the First Lady partied it up in Chicago.
Generations of American taxpayers are now indebted to repay
billions of dollars Democrats distributed through the Stimulus to their contributors,
unions, teachers, and community organization/social
activist groups such as ACORN. Billions of Stimulus dollars to “save” or
create jobs were extended primarily to the public sector leaving the
private sector with an ever increasing rise in unemployment. Earnings
for government jobs soared 12% above the standard compensation for
private sector jobs. According to Obama’s economic advisor Robert Reich, the Stimulus was never meant to
benefit all Americans. Reich declared
recovery jobs were not for “white male construction workers.” The
recipients of the Democrats’ largesse are expected to loyally vote
Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are
contributing to the insolvency of America.
Unemployment in the private sector
is rapidly spiraling downwards with no signs of recovery. We have 15
million unemployed workers, 6.7 million of whom have been
unemployed for over 26 weeks. The month of May recorded a 431,000
increase in new jobs, of which 411,000 were temporary Census jobs. The Obama
adminstration’s “rescue” plan increased unemployment benefits to 99
months, thereby eliminating the incentive to work, increasing number of
beneficiaries dependent on big government, and amassing increased
financial burden on the taxpayer.
The Stimulus, “jobs” bills and bailouts are failing to revitalize the
American economy or reduce unemployment in the private sector. The
nation is facing sustained unemployment at 10% or greater. This
sustained unemployment, forced growth of public over private sector
jobs, increased taxation that must occur to pay off U.S. debt will
be the death knell of the middle class. The Obama administration’s
execution of the Cloward-Piven Strategy is straining the system to the
point of collapse.
The Federal Reserve’s response to America’s mounting national debt
has been to print ever-greater quantities of money, a strategy
for increasing the money supply that leads to inflation and the
devaluation of currency. Moody’s Investors Service warned the
US is close to losing its triple-A credit status if the country
doesn’t get a grip on its deficit spending.
Spending has its limits as we’ve seen in Europe. Thirty-two U.S. states are on the brink of insolvency
as they can no longer afford to run their governments. Under President
Obama we have witnessed the first cross-generational theft of taxpayer
income, and a redistribution of wealth from the producers to the
non-productive. It is bitter irony that the American taxpayer is funding
the destruction of the American economy and the loss of their freedom.
With the intent to redistribute
wealth and vastly expand the role of government, Obama and the Democrat
Congress passed healthcare reform. Known as Obamacare, it is the ultimate actualization of the
Cloward-Piven strategy. It is designed to overwhelm and collapse our
social support network by forcing millions of Americans to become
dependent upon government assistance through the threat of penalty by
fine or imprisonment for failure to purchase the service. Obamacare will
accelerate the finanical ruin of hospitals and doctors
across the country, ration medical care, accelerate healthcare costs, and restrict access for elderly and low-income patients.
Like healthcare reform has nothing to do with healthcare, cap-and-trade environmental legislation is not
about global warming. Its purpose is government control of
the economy and the redistribution of income. The legislation mandates
massive transfers of wealth from industrialized Western Nations to
Third World countries. In concert with Obamacare, cap-and-trade will
complete Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America.” We, as a
country, may never be the same.
The effects of cap-and-trade legislation on the American economy will
be catastrophic. Reducing Americans to living in a Third World country
as technological advances of the 20th century will be
foregone for exorbitant taxation designed to turn Democrats and their
friends into billionaires while American taxpayers become serfs. The
non-productive citizens of society have been assured they will receive
reimbursements for energy taxes paid, while the rest of America subsidizes their energy use.
Right now we’re saying we want to move from suicidal gray
capitalism to some kind of eco-capitalism….Will that be enough? No, it
won’t be enough. We want to go beyond systems of exploitation and
oppression all together. But that’s a process.
And I think what’s great about the movement that’s beginning to
emerge is that the crisis is so severe… The Green economy will
start off as a subset, and we’re going to push it and push it and push
it until it becomes the engine for transforming the whole society.
Is there any wonder why Obama ignored the Gulf oil “crisis”
for 38 days then denounced, blamed, and threatened British Petroleum with civil and criminal lawsuits? The oil spill serves
the Left’s radical agenda. His inaction on the ”crisis” promotes the
destruction of the fishing and tourist industries in the region thereby
creating secondary crises, provides a ready excuse to shut down all
new oil drilling, and will effectively raise the price of oil and
food across the country bringing more Americans to a financial brink
forcing dependence on food stamps, welfare, and other government
programs. Barack Obama intends to bankrupt not only America and
its people, but the coal industry.
And if you don’t believe Obama, listen to Representative Maxine
But to guarantee the transformation of America a rapid expansion
of the constituency of new voters dependent on big government must
continue. Moving to overwhelm government agencies with unsustainable
financial burdens, the Obama administration is aggressively pressing for
amnesty to 12 million illegal immigrants and their families. To
contribute successive tidal waves of new voters the administration hopes
to grant Puerto Rico statehood. These efforts alone will add over 24
million new voters and a several trillion dollars in additional welfare
coverage, food stamps, healthcare, education, and income redistribution
through Earned Income tax credits.
If the “crises” to date don’t overwhelm and break the American
economic system, the expansion to voter rolls and welfare recipients
will. When the riders in the cart outnumber those pulling the
cart, the cart stops moving.
Obama adminstration seeks to fulfill Cloward and Piven’s ultimate goal,
the annihilation of capitalism and America from within. Since January
20, 2009 the administration orchestrated crisis after crisis using fear
and urgency of calamity to force economic and social change on the
American people. This is not “change we can believe in.” This is not
change we want. Unless the American people halt the onslaught of
destructive forces created by Barack Obama and the Democrats in the
November elections our generation will witness the fall of America
through orchestrated crisis.
