Obama: an Alinsky-trained shakedown artist & the Treasury of the United States

Why does Obama hide the truth about himself?

Barack Obama is not only the country’s first black president, but historically, he’s the first community organizer president.  As suggested in a previous article, when the richest and most powerful nation in the world allows an Alinsky-trained shakedown artist access to its Treasury, bad things happen.

It’s safe to say our president didn’t learn the fine arts of running a charity bake sale while working as a community organizer in Chicago. The sweet-talking Obama first cut his teeth as a radical foot soldier shlepping for the Developing Communities Project, an organization set-up to transform black churches into left-wing political organs. The task would require the impressive skill of being able to out-sermonize preachers and to devilishly tempt the faithful into trading heavenly worship for radical agitation.

While Obama was schmoozing sermonizers in the projects, among them the vulgar jeremiad-spewing Reverend Wright, he crossed paths with the militant Associations of Community Organizing for Reform Now (ACORN), a sprawling network of thousands of leftists. A bromance was born.

The amount of disinformation regarding Obama’s early years with ACORN is daunting.  Article after article deny the president had any serious contact with ACORN, which was picked up as a ready-made meme by the same seedy outlets that shamelessly promoted Obama during his 2008 election campaign.

Pathetically, Obama’s own pilloried website “Fight the Smears” (the old “Attack Watch,” which is now the old “Truth Team“) brazenly claimed “Barack Obama never organized with ACORN.”  Understandable claim, given the formally de-funded ACORN’s scandalous record. But it is also untrue.

So what happened, if we might depart from the official narrative of the Ministry of Truth?

Michigan Union Manual Instructs Teachers on How to Use Children as ‘Propaganda’

Saul Alinsky

While much of the rhetoric in this “crisis planning” handbook is unsettling (”The worst time to plan for a crisis is when you are in the middle of one, so crisis planning should commence at the same time that planning for actual bargaining begins”), perhaps the most disturbing moment occurs when one section appears to quote almost verbatim Saul Alinksy’s “Rules For Radicals.”

Alinsky instructs his followers to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Likewise, the MEA manual instructs teachers to “Pick a target—personalize—and polarize the opposition [pg. 17].” And those are just the verbatim quotes; the entire manual is a handbook for creating, managing, and profiting from crises.

Representatives of the MEA were unavailable for comment when The Blaze contacted them for more information.

“What’s really troubling about this publication isn’t what’s inside, it’s right there on the cover. This organization has decided it is above the law that has empowered them so much in so many other ways,” said Paul Kersey, director of labor policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, according to the Michigan Capitol Confidential article.

“We have given them the authority to represent employees who individually may not support them, and to collect dues and agency fees from them and have them fired if they refuse. But the union does not feel it is bound by the law’s prohibition of government strikes,” he said.
