My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class,” has launched across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed by the purposeful “murder of the middle class” and death of the American dream. It is not happening by accident, mistake or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the greatest conspiracy in world history.

The ringleader is Barack Obama, and I can put Obama at the scene of the crime.

How can I do that? I was Barack Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, class of ’83. You need to know about Obama and his plan to “murder the middle class.” To stop it, we first have to understand it.

First, at Columbia we were repeatedly told America is a land of “unfairness, inequality and lack of social justice.” Recognize those words? My classmates proudly called themselves progressives and socialists, even Marxists. They talked about how to dismantle the “power structure,” the rich and the business owners – especially white ones. This is especially interesting since almost all my Columbia classmates were spoiled-brat white kids from the best prep schools in America, where their massive white guilt brainwashing started early.

We were taught to hate capitalism and believe it had to be destroyed so America’s wealth could be redistributed to create “fairness and equality.” Sound familiar?

At Columbia we studied “The Communist Manifesto,” Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the Cloward-Piven strategy to transform America.

In 1981, a student burst through the doors to our political science class and screamed, “The president has been shot! They’ve assassinated Reagan!” My classmates yelled, hugged, high-fived, jumped up and down and cheered (what they mistakenly thought was) the death of a Republican president. Today, those classmates are in government with Obama, or controlling the mainstream media. They may talk about “moderation and compromise,” but remember: 30 years ago, they cheered for the death of a Republican president.

Most importantly, we were taught a simple, but brilliant plan called “Cloward-Piven,” after former Columbia professors Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. The plan called for the destruction of capitalism and American exceptionalism by overwhelming the system with massive spending, entitlements and debt. That would collapse the economy, wipe out the middle class and bring Americans to their knees, begging government to save them. Sound familiar? It’s the exact plan Obama has been implementing.

We were taught at Columbia a key component of the plan involved fooling the voters by calling yourself “moderate” – never admit your real goals. We were taught to demonize your opponents, calling them evil, greedy, extreme, radical and even “terrorist.” Put your opponents on the defense by calling them the very things you are. Lie, misrepresent and commit fraud because “The ends justify the means.” Obama learned well.

Obama claims Obamacare is about “saving the uninsured” when its real objective is income redistribution to destroy the middle class. Environmental regulations are to “protect us from global warming” when the real goal is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills. Immigration reform is always about “protecting innocent children,” but its real goal is to create 12 million new Democrat voters. High taxes are to “create equality,” but they are all about starving Obama’s political opposition. Obscene government spending is always about “helping widows and orphans,” as opposed to creating more debt to overwhelm the system. Higher teacher salaries are “for the kids,” as opposed to enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians. Bailing out GM was to “save jobs,” as opposed to saving bloated auto union pensions.

It’s always about lying to cover up the real agenda of murdering the middle class, redistributing wealth and putting big government in control of our every move.

The key to it all is to “boil the frog slowly,” something we also learned at Columbia. Set the fire low, so the frog (in this case, the middle class) wouldn’t know what was happening until he’s cooked.

That’s why Obama starts and ends every speech with, “I’m here to save the middle class,” while his actions are annihilating them. He’s boiling the frog slowly. By the time the middle class realizes he’s the killer, and we’re the prey, we’ll already be dead.

So you see, it’s not due to coincidence, incompetence or even George Bush.

It’s all according to plan – a plan Obama learned at Columbia. Everything Obama does, and everything happening to the U.S. economy, all started at Columbia. The entire Obama agenda to overwhelm the system, destroy capitalism and murder the middle class was hatched at Columbia. Obama may not have attended class, but he learned well. He should have received the Karl Marx Award for “Student Most Likely to Destroy America.”

That’s why Columbia matters. You must know your enemy before you can defeat him. Columbia University is a window into Obama’s soul. That’s why I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class,” to give all Americans the information and tools to save the middle class and the American dream. This fight is just getting started. God bless America.
