In last week’s column, I detailed in no uncertain terms how President Obama has used the Cloward-Piven strategy to dismantle our republic. This week, I will detail some little-known facts about how Hillary has prepared and is preparing to receive the Cloward-Piven baton from Barack in 2016, unless of course she is stopped.
As a reminder, the Cloward-Piven strategy is a political plan created in 1966 by two Columbia University sociologists to overload the U.S. public welfare system with the goal to replace it with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.”
I echo again that it’s neither a coincidence that Obama graduated from Columbia University nor that others who espoused the Cloward-Piven strategy were a group of radicals who have been a part of his life and education: Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, Bernardine Dohrn, George Wiley, Frank Marshall Davis, Wade Rathke and George Soros, among others.
What’s also not a coincidence is how close Hillary ran in the same circles. Like people that train at a distance under the same coach but come together to run the same relay race, so Hillary has entered the track salivating for the opportunity to grab the Cloward-Piven baton from Barack.
What’s the evidence? It’s abundant.
The ideologies, politics, histories and strategies of Cloward, Piven and the Clintons are more closely intertwined than most know. In the 1960s, they all were sipping from the same straw of Saul Alinsky, Chicago’s notorious revolutionary Marxist community organizer and his ideas for radical social change.
First, Robert Chandler, a retired Air Force colonel and former strategist for the White House, the Departments of State, Defense, Energy and Justice, and the CIA, explained in the Washington Times that “much of [the Cloward-Piven] strategy was drawn from Saul Alinsky.” There’s no doubt that Alinsky’s life and work served as the coach and plan for Cloward and Piven.
Second, Hillary’s similar discipleship devotion was clearly seen by her 92-page college thesis paper on Saul Alinsky, which is a glimpse behind the present veil of her politically savvy and guarded gloss into the heart of her true ideologies.
Even Bill Dedman, investigative reporter for NBC News, had to admit the young 21-year-old Hillary had an infatuation with the “old radical from Chicago.” In her own words, Hillary characterized Alinsky as possessing a “compelling personality” and “exceptional charm.”
No surprise that in 1993, the Clintons asked officials at her alma mater to hide Hillary Rodham’s senior thesis from Clinton biographers, at least that’s what her thesis adviser and friend, professor Alan H. Schechter, said they wanted after taking the call from the White House.
Nevertheless, NBC’s Dedman notes how David Brock, in his 1996 biography, “The Seduction of Hillary Rodham,” called Hillary “Alinsky’s daughter.” And Barbara Olson, who tragically died in the Sept. 11 attacks, used an Alinsky quote to introduce every chapter of her 1999 book, “Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton.” Olson also posited how Hillary’s thesis was locked away because she “does not want the American people to know the extent to which she internalized and assimilated the beliefs and methods of Saul Alinsky.”
Barbara Ehrenreich, Frances Fox Piven’s friend, collaborator and intellectual disciple from the American Sociological Association, spilled the beans on some early Clinton collaborations and relations with Cloward and Piven: “In 1983, [Frances Piven] co-founded, with Cloward, a group called Human SERVE, which was dedicated to the idea that if citizens were allowed to register to vote when they apply for aid from government programs or for drivers’ licenses, some of the historic administrative encumbrances on the right to vote could be overcome. The poor in particular, who often lack the time for voter registration, would be effectively enfranchised. Human SERVE’s approach was incorporated in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, popularly known as the ‘motor voter bill.'”
President Bill Clinton signed the Motor Voter Bill into law and none other than Richard Cloward and his wife, Frances Piven, were standing behind him as he did. Even Wikipedia explains that Cloward was a “primary motivator” for the passage of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 known as “Motor Voter,” which forces states’ department of motor vehicles to offer voter registration. Sounds so benign, right? Hold on.
What’s not surprising is how the “Motor Voter” law has morphed to incorporate more Cloward-Piven-Clinton strategies. For example in Oregon, legislators have just enacted a subsidiary law that registers a person to vote when they obtain or renew a state driver’s license. That might sound all fine and dandy, too, until one realizes that a stone’s throw away in neighboring states like California, they are doling out licenses to 1.5 million illegals over the next three years. How long will it be until California’s Motor Voter laws extend voting rights to illegals, too?
And California is not alone. Nevada and Washington – also butting up against Oregon’s borders, have also joined the ranks of states offering access to driver’s licenses despite immigrant status. And don’t forget Hawaii, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Illinois, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C., which are also a part of that non-citizen driver’s license distribution union, according to the National Immigration Law Center.
You see, it’s not a coincidence either that these new drivers and voters, who have flooded and are still flooding into our country through porous borders, are also at the heart of plan to overload the U.S. welfare system under the Cloward-Piven strategy. As Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa told WND: “I do feel this attempt to flood the border with illegals is a playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory.”
In 2010, Frances Piven, who is also one of eight honorary chairs in the Democratic Socialists of America, gave an interview to the progressive Common Dreams in which she confessed: “The important development is the emergence of a feisty immigration movement that contemporary unions have no choice but to support, especially unions with large numbers of immigrants in their ranks. … Together with [students and their universities, service workers – not industrial, and] immigrants, these are the constituencies that will give birth to new protest movements.”
You see, it’s a win-win-win-win-win-win to socialist Cloward-Piven progressives like Obama and Hillary. Illegals flood the country; illegals get driver’s licenses; illegals get voter rights; illegals get welfare benefits; illegals overload the U.S. welfare system; illegals keep progressives in office, who crown the Cloward-Piven strategy and the fundamental transformation of America as a victory.
An interesting story about Piven and her own driver’s license demonstrates the power of her connection to the Clintons, as told again by her friend, Barbara Ehrenreich: “Sometime in the mid-1990s, Frances found herself on the way to the airport without her driver’s license. She called Richard at their home and asked him to find it and bring it to her at the train station. He failed to find it, and instead brought her a photo of herself and Bill Clinton taken at the time of the signing of the motor voter bill. That was enough to get Frances on the plane.”
A first-year political student can easily see where a Hillary presidency will take Cloward-Piven strategies. You see, the plan to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” has a successor, and she must be stopped.
