We have learned these past months that President Obama embodies Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals. This is key to understanding the war we are now in with the U.S. Government.
Perhaps most readers have not read Rules for Radicals. But if they are the operational rules in the White House and most Federal Agencies, we had better know them. Here they are. Learn them well. There is no better way to start than with the Alinky book’s dedication, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), 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.” Breathtaking. Breathtakingly clear. I repeat, President Obama embodies these Alinsky Rules for Radicals.
- “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
- “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
- “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
- “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
- “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
- “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
- “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
- “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
- “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
10. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”
11.“The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
12.“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
In an Obama-like Rule 12 manner, Democrat Representative Steve Cohen charged Saturday “A lot of those [Tea Party congressional] members are rabid, they are sophomoric … they all talk in military terms—they’re some kind of guerillas to strike a blow for freedom. …These are the domestic enemies.”
You, fellow patriot are in a war. Now you know the rules your enemy employs.
